"Come into Goshen" - And the Outbreak of Foot & Mouth Dave Hood

In 2001, the United Kingdom had the worst recorded outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease amongst our cattle, this country had ever known. For about 2 months prior to this outbreak, wherever I saw cattle, for some reason, unknown to me, I was drawn to think about them. This continued, until  later in that same year, Foot and Mouth actually  broke out.
The instruction I received, was akin to the message, "Come into Goshen".
In July 2007, again, for some unknown reason, I found myself thinking about the outbreak of Foot and Mouth, that had occurred in 2001. The next month, August 2007, an actual outbreak was identified in Surrey, thankfully it was isolated and non invasive to the countryside as a whole.
I felt it even wiser, to ask and enquire of the Lord, as many of you have done. The following articles are the result of that enquiry, which He set in motion. It is for individuals in their relationship with God. It is for the Church and their position with God and its own perspective and organisation. It is for the country, in understanding Gods dealings and desires for this land, its peoples and further afield, the continent of Europe it partially occupies…for such a time AS THIS.
                                                                                                                    Part 1 – Goshen's valley.
                                                                                                  A friend of mine and his wife went on a seaside visit. Bob, found himself at one point on a hilltop, overlooking a main road. There he observed a car crash that had occurred head on an S bend on the road, in the valley below. He felt like walking away, but he did not. Instead he went down the steps to see if he could help. There he tended as best to those who were part of the crash. One of the party went upwards towards the hill to slow down the traffic, while Bob, conducted the traffic at the turn of the bend at the foot of the hill. The oncoming traffic, their drivers, were obeying his instructions and acknowledging his help. Soon an off duty policeman on a motorcycle came and instructed Bob to continue what he was doing. He gave him authorisation while the policeman himself went to help and assess more closely the situation with the cars occupants. Soon a police car with flashing light arrived and Bob was able to leave the scene.
What of all this…well this is what I felt the Lord would have share with you.
WE share and use the authority God has given us. Though we don't have an official uniform or a flashing light, but when we operate in a God given authority, people see our spiritual fluorescent hazard jacket, especially when we do the simple practical thing. His people, us, me and you, every one of us can act and adhere to the authority that he gives us and the clothing with which he gives us… "I have clothed you with power and authority from on high". Both the member of the public and the off duty policeman trusted Bob. So does God. At any given time, you are Gods man for the moment.
Isa 60:1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.  Isa 60:2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.  Gods word for today.
At a conference years ago, the Lord showed me a lighthouse.  At the top, was the clear Light, which was composed of dozens of lit candles tightly packed together at the core of the hub of Light. This light combined to shine, reflect the light of the highly polished mirror outward to sea and land, in all directions. I looked outward to where the glass of the circular room should be and noticed that it was so clean; there was not one speck of dust upon it. In fact, there was no glass AT ALL. The BARRIER of the glass between the source and the light and its shining had been REMOVED.
How does this fit into what we have already heard from the scenes.
The NATURAL barriers had been taken down (ordinary people operating in authority) and as a result the situation including that seen by Authority was exposed to His Light. This is how I felt he expresses this to you all.
"You and the world are EXPOSED TO and not SEPERATED from My Light and Authority. My Kingdom is not of this world, though you are in the world you are not of the world. Only be willing and opportunity in more diverse forms will appear on the bend of mankind and their blind spots. But I have you and I have others in the open curve, the bend, to prevent and help in collision, willing to go into the chaos below. I am the Light. As you stand before and in front of me, not being the Light, but standing in the place of My Light, I will cast My shadow in front of you. For My Light is behind you and as you go for me, so does My Light cast a shadow for Me and it touches the earth BEYOND where you stand. And as this day is growing old, the sun seemingly lower in the sky, so to is it at SUCH AN HOUR that I cause My Shadow to LENGTHEN
You took the small place, the needy place and because of that My Greatness was acknowledged. So to, in these ways did I show Myself through My Son, because he walked these ways FOR me. Now, YOU walk this way. You will hear a voice behind you saying… THIS WAY, giving you authority to move to where and in my will, no matter if it is seen or understood. I need people to COME DOWN FROM OFF OF THE MOUNTAIN, OFF from the top of the MOUNTAIN TOP and into the chaos of the valley and not be mere spectators. But to allow Me, to let My Light shine upon you and them. So that my light especially in the shadow of the flesh, especially in weakness can be seen. Greater things will ye do in My name.
Go in My Name, just as you went in the authority given by that policeman. Even the policeman realised you were in a good place and position and did NOT countermand a GOOD THING.  I am God and I am Good. I am God of All Good Things."
v     The passage above (Part 1) is what I believe God would have us obey and agree with Him on. His tone is encouraging and enabling, inspiring and instilling IN us, His desire and ability to love and good works, to not become weary in doing good, not giving up, but IN HIM, to KEEP ON, for he promises His harvest and its fruit. Clothing with power is one thing, but as the scene my friend was involved with so it this EQUALLY NECESSARY… 1Pe 5:5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all [of you] be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and gives grace to the humble. 
v     The passage below (Part 2) is what I believe is ALSO what God would have us listen to, and believe and act upon. He asks the questions of us within it and points to a change in our thinking and perspective. There is some background, which I will keep as short as possible. Be blessed as he opens up and prepares to transform our thinking. Part2 can be seen in stark contrast to Part 1.
Part 2 – Goshen's valley.
We read in Exodus, that during the MIDST of the Judgements upon Egypt, whist Israel was kept as slaves. That Moses, directed by God, urged the children of Israel to enter Goshen with all their livestock. Where they and ANY others, including Egyptians were offered shelter and protection, as if one of Gods own.
Why is this so strange? It is written that the Egyptians hated shepherds. Why? Well earlier in Egypt's history, shepherd kings came from afar with their flocks and herds and desolated their land. So historically they were a hated set of people. Also, the Egyptians worshipped the bull and the sheep; they were their own gods and idols. They held the ox and the sheep as sacred, whilst others sacrificed such animals. God was judging their idols in their own land. So to go to Goshen the land of the shepherd with their flocks and herds, would be a hard thing for the Egyptian to do. Neverthless, those Egyptians that saw the God of Israel at work in Egypt, went with Israel and their flocks into Goshen and there experienced the hand of God upon them, their families and livestock, not in judgement, but in protection. (Goshen means – drawing near)Psa 24:1 ¶ [[A Psalm of David.]] The earth [is] the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. Psa 50:9  I will take no bullock out of thy house, [nor] he goats out of thy folds.
 Psa 50:10  For every beast of the forest [is] mine, [and] the cattle upon a thousand hills.  Psa 50:11  I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field [are] mine. After discovering the background, I felt the Lord say the following.
"What are yours or any one of you…what are your sheep and cattle? What are your gods? I own all the sheep and all the cattle on a thousand hills, they are mine. Have you forgot your creator and devised another image, made out of what I have given you? Might I take them away and might I give them back to you? if you are prepared to worship Me in Goshen, the place of the shepherds. What have you turned for yourselves that I have given you, that has come from Me? You build your pens and your enclosures and count your cattle and your sheep and you say you build your church for Me!
Yet, what have you built? What has become of your pastures, what has become of your numbers? Are they fruitful, healthy and loved? Do they bear fruit for me or do they bear fruit for you? Whose mountain are they pastured on, Mine or yours? Is it not Me who has to climb and carry my lost little ones from the steep crags and the blind gullies? Have you looked out on the land and said it is safe because of Me…or…because it shows your hillocks and you count them rather than my fruit? Every last one of mine dear ones will be accounted for, for I will not lose one of them. For I will stretch out my holy hand to heal and to save, My hand will do it. I live, I Am from Eternal and from Everlasting. I falter not nor fail not and I will step on the rock and the crag that it is that I need to. I will bring them down on to safe pasture.
I will avoid the chaos. I myself will lie down in their hidden valley. I am The Gate as they enter in dependent on Me and not man. They are seen for their state and am accepted and counted. Everyone is accounted for."
Gen 45:10
And thou shalt dwell in the land of Goshen, and thou shalt be near unto me, thou, and thy children, and thy children's children, and thy flocks, and thy herds, and all that thou hast:
Goshen is a place that is near God
Gen 47:27
And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen; and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied exceedingly.
Goshen is a place of plenty
Exd 9:26
Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel [were], was there no hail.
Goshen is a place where they is no destroyer
My friend sums it up, Gods Presence, Gods Provision and Gods Protection. Praise His Wonderful name. Come to Goshen.
