A27) Other Parts of the Global Church, Other Lampstands, (S. Dobbs, 2003).

In the summer of 2003,a couple of months after I’d received the previous word on the 2 lampstands, I believe that the Lord revealed to me a third lampstand (one not mentioned in Rev 11). This was the church of the WESTERN WORLD which consisted of believers from Western Europe and the United States of America. God showed me that this part of the global body of Christ is specifically referred to in Rev 3 v 14-22, in the letter to the church of Laodicea.

The Spirit also showed me that the falling away of believers from the faith, in the end times (see 2 Thess 2 v 3), will be greatest in the western church than in any other part of the global body of Christ. I saw that this will be partly due to the materialism that exists here, spiritual blindness, and also because the beasts power base will be centred in the Western World.

A few months later I received the following word on a fourth lampstand. As this came in a more vague way I’m not therefore as confident of it. However as I was praying I perceived this fourth lampstand to be the CHURCH OF SOUTH AMERICA and saw that this was specifically referred to in the letter to the church of Thyatira (Rev 2 v 18-29).

[This and the previous word identify four lampstands. Since a total of seven lampstands are identified in revelation 1:12, and 2: 1 I think it is likely that there are a further three subdivisions of the global body of Christ which are not identified in this word. Perhaps the Lord has or will reveal the remaining three to others? The two most anointed lampstands, (which I believe the Lord showed me refer to the black/African and Chinese churches), are also called the two olive trees in Rev 11:4. Many scholars think that these also refer to the two olive trees in Zech 4:1-4, 6, 10, 14. (Please read these verses). If so this may suggest that Christians from the regional churches of Africa and China will provide extra anointing of the Holy Spirit to all seven lampstands, i.e. to the whole of the global body of Christ in the end times. As I believe the Lord has shown me that the anointing on the black/African and Chinese churches would remain on Christians from these two groups wherever they went in the world, this would make it possible for them to help the global body of Christ in this way.]
