"Separation, Distinction and Portion" - Christine Beadsworth

Christine Beadsworth

Released 9/4/22

The tip of spear is part of the whole spearhead, so although it passes through

an area as a forerunner, the rest of the spear passing through that same area

impacts the tip. If there is turbulence as the main part of spear head passes

thru, the tip will feel it. In the same way, although some of us have celebrated

the beginning of the Fall Feasts, the rest of the spearhead following the

orthodox calendar will be marking them towards the end of September, and

we are still connected to them as part of the faithful remnant. I believe the

Spirit of the Lord needed a forerunner company who were willing to step out

in faith according to what they believed and move ahead of the rest of the

remnant, even if it meant they were out of sync with the majority of the

spearhead throughout the last 6 months of 5782.

God needs courageous forerunners who will be willing to be unpopular, while

being obedient to what the Spirit is showing them personally. The two spies

who went into the Promised Land ahead of the rest waiting on the other side

of the Jordan were exposed to more revelation and information that the rest

of the people of God did not see or hear – and they were doing it on behalf of

the whole company. In the same way, the tip of the spear pierces through veils

and boundaries, cutting a path and opening the way for the rest of the

spearhead to follow in.

Do you remember the Lord speaking to me some time during 5781 about the

door to the Bridal Chamber closing. At the time, I knew the Lord was

connecting this event to the parable of the wise and foolish virgins; the wise

and foolish ‘Bethulah’ in Matthew 25. However, because of the Lord taking a

group as the ‘tip of the spear’ and marking the Feast of Trumpets a month

earlier than the orthodox Jewish Calendar, I have had questions as to how this

closing of the door applied and when it would take place.

Firstly, I want to suggest to you that this is what this early Feast of Trumpets

celebration has been about. The tip of the spear is sharp and penetrates the

target before the rest of the spear head – and even then, not the whole

spearhead penetrates the target but only a portion is hidden. Up to half of the

whole spear head remains clearly visible and exposed and shakes along with

the shaft of the spear. Early celebration of the Feast of Trumpets means early

preparation of the heart; getting our inner hearts rightly aligned to His

plumbline of holiness and receiving of endtime mandates ahead of the

company following on behind. It provides distinction and orientation;

movement out of a larger company into a smaller company with a specific

calling. There is a smaller company who needed to go ahead of the bulk of the

remnant, in order to be assigned to their specific roles and endtime mandates

BEFORE the larger company came to their Fall Feast appointment.

Now, we need to refresh our memories concerning the types and shadows in

the ancient Jewish wedding ceremony. Once betrothal had taken place the

bride would wear a veil (indicating separation unto the prospective

bridegroom in holiness) and would focus upon getting herself fully ready for

the big day. The bridegroom would leave the betrothal ceremony and go

immediately to prepare and build a place attached to his father’s home. This

room would be the bridal chamber and only once the father decided it was

ready and done to his satisfaction, would he release his son to go and get his


So, the almost ‘completely ready’ betrothed woman would put a lamp in the

window to signify she was watching for her beloved’s coming. She did not

know the exact day or hour in which he would arrive. Then, at midnight on the

appointed day (remember the Jewish day starts at 6pm), the friend of the

bridegroom would blow a shofar very loudly to awaken the betrothed woman,

alerting her that the bridegroom was on his way and she should go out to meet

him. She would awaken, do the last-minute things (like fill her lamp and trim

the wick) and leave her father’s house with her bridesmaids to spend the last

little bit of her waiting time making her way towards her groom in the

darkness. Some time in the 3rd or 4th watch of the night, he would arrive and

whisk her and her bridesmaids away to the place he had prepared and shut the

door to this chamber. The bridal company (bride, groom, friends of the

bridegroom and bridesmaids) would enjoy a private night-time banquet and

then towards the end of the morning watch, she and her bridesmaids would go

to do the final mikvah (cleansing bath) and get ready for the public wedding on

the morning of the same day.

Now we need to look at the bridal typology in the Fall Feasts – of which there

are 3. The Feast of Trumpets on 1st Tishrei (also called Rosh Hashanah) equates

to the awakening and warning blast of the shofar blown by the friend of the

Bridegroom at midnight (Matt 25:6). The message of the friend of the

Bridegroom is that the Bridegroom has already left His Father’s house and is en

route to whisk away His Bride (an event described by the Jewish culture as

‘coming like a thief in the night’). His instruction is, “Go out to meet Him”.

Immediately, this day brings a revelation and a separation. Some are

sufficiently prepared with extra oil. Some are not. I want to point out that the

wise virgins were prepared AHEAD of time. They had extra oil in their lamps –

this is to do with choices made in the past season. At the moment the

Bridegroom came and took them to the Bridal chamber, they were fully

equipped and prepared. So, immediately after the shofar call was heard, those

who are wise are identified and they excitedly fill and light their lamps and go

forth into the night to meet their Bridegroom. The foolish are also clearly

visible as they go into frantic last-minute buying from the oil sellers.

Then, after the Feast of Trumpets, there 10 Days of Awe; the tenth day being

Yom Kippur which is the holiest day on the Jewish Calendar. These Days of Awe

are for final aligning of the heart, repentance and putting in order and

journeying for the face-to-face moment with the Beloved. This is why Yom

Kippur is known as ‘Face to Face’. It is also the day the High Priest went into

the Holy of Holies to pour the blood on the Mercy Seat. Yom Kippur is also a

type of the moment when the Bridegroom comes to whisk His beloved away;

leading His fully prepared Bride to the place He has prepared especially for her.

This is the time when the door to the Bridal Chamber is closed, once the fully

prepared Bridal party is inside... Five days later, on 15th Tishrei, is the Feast of

Booths (Tabernacles) which is a type of the wedding feast held during daylight


So, we can see that the closing of the door of the bridal chamber occurs some

moment after midnight; after the blowing of the awakening shofar. Now I want

to remind you how the Spirit showed me that these recent years in the Hebrew

calendar have been like watches of the night. He began by telling me about


5780 evening watch 3pm – 6pm

5781 1

st watch of the night 6pm – 9pm

5782 2

nd watch of the night 9pm -12am

5783 3

rd watch of the night 12am – 3am

So, we can see that the end of 5782 is the ‘midnight’ moment; the hour the

shofar gets sounded loudly to alert the Bride that the Bridegroom is on His

way. No wonder the first of the Fall Feasts is called ‘the Feast of Trumpets’ or

colloquially, ‘the day of the awakening blast’. It is at this moment that the

waiting virgins are alerted that the moment they have longed for and prepared

for is at the door. Now it is important to note they are all virgins; they are all

expecting the Bridegroom, but some are not sufficiently prepared – and

amongst them is one who is the Bride and the rest are bridesmaids. Five of the

nine bridesmaids disqualify themselves because of a lack of sufficient

preparation and when they knock on the closed door of the Bridal Chamber,

they are told that the bridegroom has never had any real relationship with

them – he never knew them! That is shocking. This is the part of the spear

head that remains vulnerable and visible and shaking once the tip of the spear

and the part closest to it have sunk into the target. The Bridal Chamber is our


Now let’s see how the early Barley celebration of the beginning of 5783 fits

in... Before the Bridal Company go out to meet the Bridegroom, there is

someone else who needs to be prepared and released to function. It is the

friend of the bridegroom; the one appointed to blow the shofar. I believe that

the Tip of the Spear Company who prepared ahead of time represent the

Friend of the Bridegroom Company; the manchild who have had their own

trumpet call and face to face moment BEFORE the Bridal Company. WHY?

Because they are the ones who release from their innermost being the breath

that carries the sound of the awakening blast. Their anointing is that of the

Spirit of Elijah and they ARE the shofar that is filled with the breath of God and

blown at the midnight hour. Their message and endtime ministry is that of

awakening and alerting the Bridal Company to the very soon coming of the

Bridegroom. Their frequency or voice calls the preparation season to

completion and galvanises the Bridal Company into action. The voice of the

Friend of the Bridegroom Company; comprising some or all of the Manchild

Company, triggers the revelation of the true state of the waiting virgins.

Suddenly it is clear who is wise and who has been foolish in the last season. It

is a ministry of separation and distinction; the sound of a call to GO OUT to

meet the Bridegroom face to face.

In their role as the Friend of the Bridegroom, the Manchild Company release

their understanding of the times. They carry this sound birthed out of intimate

communion and face to face fellowship with the Bridegroom. He tells His

secrets to His friends! THIS is why the Tip of the Spear needed to go ahead of

the rest of the Bridal Company. Just as depicted in Revelation 12, they come

forth or are birthed from the midst of the Bridal Company, becoming separate

and distinct in their calling and function (the birthing and separation began as

the early barley ripeness was noted and early Passover celebrated and was

complete as the early barley Feast of Trumpets was celebrated. These

forerunners are caught up to the throne to receive their endtime instruction

and mandates. This sound and shofar blast they release is the last warning

given before the arrival of the Bridegroom and it is sounded exclusively for

those who have been in a season of preparation for His coming – His Bridal

Company. The rest of those sleeping in other houses do not even stir or turn

over in their sleep, because their ears are deaf to the message of the Spirit of

Elijah. They are not part of the Bridal Company and never will be. At best, they

may be the guests at the wedding.

There are 4 weeks between the early barley Feast of Trumpets (28th Aug 2022)

and the orthodox Feast of Trumpets. BY the time the orthodox Feast of

Trumpets is celebrated beginning on 25th September 2022, the Manchild

functioning as the Friend of the Bridegroom Messenger are beginning to

release their awakening sound! They have had their own face-to-face moment

(Yom Kippur) on evening of 6th Sept through 7th Sept. They have become one

with the will and purposes of the throne; having entering the Speaking Place or

Holy of Holies and receiving their mandates face-to-face. From this time

forward, like John the Baptist, they prepare the Way for the coming of the

Bridegroom. Complete focus is on His soon coming and it is their job to wake

up the Bridal Company who have fallen asleep because it has taken so long!

Remember in the last message of the constellations on the orthodox Feast of

Trumpets, the messenger Mercury and Venus (the Morning Star) are so close

together as to look like one celestial body (hidden below the horizon at sunset)

and they are positioned at the ear of Virgo or Bethulah saying, “Wake up, He is

almost here! Your face-to-face moment is fast approaching!”

For the wise virgins, the midnight hour shofar blast sounded by the friend of

the bridegroom is a signal that they will be moving out of the house of their

fathers and into full separation to the bridegroom. They are no longer referred

to as the ‘betrothed’ but as the ‘bride’, because the day of the wedding is at

hand. Never again will they do chores in their father’s house. From now on,

they go forward with their lamps newly filled with stored oil and their wicks

trimmed, their eyes searching for that face-to-face moment and the joy of the

private banquet in the seclusion of the bridal chamber.

How I would like to share with you an astonishing prophetic action that took

place in 5780 (the evening watch year). I first shared it in a message called

‘Under the shadow of His wing’ (written in Elul 5780). On the first weekend of

5780, I participated in a Firestarters Conference in Bloemfontein, South Africa.

Part of what the Lord instructed us to do is to hold an invitation-only banquet

for 12 people at midnight in the King David Chamber at the facility. Actually,

we sent out 16 invitations but 4 refused, saying they had other priorities and

previous appointments or were too busy - yet again, a very prophetic

occurrence (Luke 14:18-24).

The blueprint given for this meal was that, apart from the lavish meal, the

people who accepted their invitations would receive scrolls, new sandals, new

shofars, have their feet washed in wine and receive two anointing oils: the

Spirit of Burning oil and 'The Sound of Extraordinary Power' oil. The instruction

was to tell them, "Well done, good and faithful servant, enter into the

inheritance stored up for you" and that they represented a people who would

be taken into the chamber prepared by the Bridegroom and fed and instructed

before being released with an apostolic anointing in the earth. Because the

Lord always declares the end from the beginning, this banquet at the beginning

of the year 5780 was a prophetic display of what would be occurring at a later

time, sometime after the prophetic ‘midnight hour’ (end of 5782), when the

shofar blast announced His coming for His Bride...

Both the friends of the Bridegroom and the Bride and her bridesmaids partake

of the private banquet in the Bridal Chamber. All of the preparation season has

been working toward this event for His remnant company; His good and

faithful bondservants. There comes a fiery anointing of consuming zeal for

God's house. Blueprints and scrolls will be handed out, new shoes, a double

portion anointing of powers of the age to come and the Spirit of Burning. This

is the private appointment with the Bridegroom which we have prepared

ourselves for, setting ourselves apart in holiness daily. Our desire is to be

among those who are taken into His chamber before the door is closed for the

darkest part of the night. To this end, we have watched, making sure we have

enough extra oil for our lamps, in case our understanding of the times has not

been entirely accurate.

I had had a dream some time before this event which we held, of being taken

into the Bridal Chamber, which had a smaller chamber off to the side of the

main room. In this area, a table was being lavishly set, with candlesticks and

beautiful crockery and cutlery and then a veil covering was placed over it to

indicate that this table was for an appointed meal at an appointed time, for

invited guests. Then, in the dream, I was in this chamber and the Bridegroom

arrived during the night with a giant armful of white roses for me. He set them

down on the floor and they became a large sheaf of grain. Out of the stalks at

the bottom came a hen with her wings around a number of chicks.

Immediately, I thought of what Jesus had said about Jerusalem and His anguish

that she had not known the time of her visitation and that He desired to gather

her as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings. He had gathered this bouquet

in order to bring it into the Bridal Chamber.

In Revelation 14, we are told of 144000 who are gathered as the firstfruits to

God and the Lamb. They follow the Lamb wherever He goes. In other words,

they do what they see Him doing. The sheaf of grain in my dream represents

this company; the early barley firstfruits sheaf gathered by the Bridegroom

(the manchild company) and those they bring with them; the ones the Lord has

awakened and gathered, like a hen gathers her chicks – those He wants to

cover under the wing of His marriage covenant. The bunch of white roses and

the stalks of grain are one, yet two distinct companies. So, the Bridegroom

goes to gather His Bride and bring her into the chamber - along with His

friends. He has prepared to enjoy a banquet with them all in the darkest night-

of-trial hours. This speaks of the Bridegroom gathering for protection and

provision a certain company made of two parts, to shelter them during this

difficult and dangerous period. This does not mean that they are gathered off

the earth necessarily, but rather taken into the spiritual place He has prepared

for them, just as the woman in Rev 12 is given the wings of a giant eagle to

carry her to the place prepared for her.

While others sleep, this group will experience face to face encounter and be

given scrolls of instruction for their kingdom purposes. Their feet will be

washed with the wine of the Word to remove all the dust and debris of the last

season. The new shofars we handed out represents a new sound and new

sandals represent walking in the inheritance stored up in heaven for us. Like

pure white roses, the Bridal Company are virgins, having kept themselves

consecrated to their Betrothed Bridegroom and having intimacy with no other.

I believe the Day of the Awakening Blast is a season, not a 24-hour day, just as

the Day of the Lord does not refer to a 24-hour day, but a season of prophetic

fulfilment. The Spirit’s reference to the door to the bridal chamber closing

must surely refer to the time after the orthodox celebration of Yom Kippur

(evening of Oct 4th through Oct 5th), because this is the calendar associated

with the Bridal Company, as opposed to the early barley ripeness calendar

being associated with the manchild company equipping and positioning.

This year of 5783 is also a Jubilee year, meaning that on Yom Kippur, another

shofar is blown, decreeing cancellation of debt, freedom for the enslaved and

return to original land and inheritance. It is a frequency of restorative justice; a

message embodying as never before the ministry of Yeshua described in Isaiah

61 – the unlocking of the prison door, beauty for ashes and oil of joy for

mourning. I have to ask, is this Jubilee shofar a depiction of the endtime

ministry of the Bridal Company? Two shofars blown in the space of 10 days;

one to awaken and call out, one to release and restore. May the manchild and

the bridal saints function in the fulness of their respective kingdom blueprints

during the days of intense darkness!

There are some Jewish Rabbis who believe that 5783 is the last Jubilee and will

usher in their Messiah. Unfortunately, the antichrist is about to step onto the

stage and be embraced before the true Messiah comes. So, let us not get

distracted by his antics, but keep focussed on true North, taking our instruction

from the throne of the True King of the Universe and being led by the Spirit of

Truth. Dense darkness is going to be on the peoples but His glory shall rise

upon us.
