Highways of Holiness

Outside of Fairbanks, Alaska in the mid 1990’s, I was praying through a church building with the pastor. No matter how much we prayed we could not seem to get a breakthrough. But then I had the impression to feel for lines running through the worship center, and felt lines running the length and width of the room like a grid. I invited the pastor to cut these lines[1], and immediately the spiritual atmosphere of the worship center changed. I realized the importance of understanding these lines, and so the journey to discover what they were commenced, and soon learned that in the secular world they are called ‘ley lines’.

It is said that the word ‘ley’ comes from the Saxon word for cleared glade. In The Ley Guide, Paul Devereux and Ian Thompson quote from the Concise Oxford English Dictionary that the word ‘ley’ can be linked to ‘lea’ meaning a ‘track of open ground’.

Ley lines we’re discovered on June 30, 1921 by Alfred Watkins (1855-1935), a locally well-known and respected Herefordshire businessman who, while looking at a map for interesting features, noticed a straight line that passed over hill tops through various points of interest, all of which were ancient. At the time of his discovery Watkins had no theory about alignments, but on that June afternoon he saw ‘in a flash’ a whole pattern of lines stretching across the landscape. Four years later, in 1925, he described his vision in a book titled, The Old Straight Track:

Imagine a chain stretched from mountain peak to mountain peak, as far as the eye could reach, and laid out until it reached the ‘high places’ of the earth at a number of ridges, banks, and knolls. Then visualize a mound, circular earthwork, or clump of trees, planted on these high points, and in low points in the valley other mounds ringed around with water to be seen from a distance. Then great standing stones brought to mark the way at intervals, and on a bank leading up to a mountain ridge or down to a ford the track cut deep so as to form a guiding notch on the skyline as you come up…Here and there, at two ends of the way, a beacon fire used to lay out the track. With ponds dug on the line, or streams banked up into ‘flashes’ to form reflecting points on the beacon track so that it might be checked when at least once a year the beacon was fired on the traditional day. All these are on the sighting line.[2]

Watkins surmised that these straight tracks, or ley lines as he called them at first, were the remnants of prehistoric trading routes. He went on to associate ley lines with the Greek god, Hennes (the Roman, Mercury and the Norse, Woden), who was the god of communication and of boundaries, the winged messenger, and the guide to travelers on unknown paths. Watkins identified Hennes-Mercury with the chief god of the Druids.

The identification of leys as ancient traders’ routes was as far as Watkins was prepared to go, despite the fact that numerous ley lines traveled up steep hillsides. Speculation as to their meaning and purpose continued after Watkins’ death in 1935.

NASA surveys have found paths running through the mountainous rainforest of Costa Rica. These paths, which follow relatively straight lines despite the difficult terrain, have been examined at ground level and have been dated to AD500-1200. Investigators discovered that the paths are ‘death roads’, and are still used for carrying corpses to burial, and also for transporting volcanic stone used in the construction of tombs and cemetery walls.

Are there any Biblical references to these ley lines? Before we look at any references to ley lines I believe there is a biblical principle we must understand, which is that the enemy cannot create anything. He can only pervert or corrupt what the Lord has already created. If that is true, then is there a righteous understanding to these lines?

                  Isaiah 35:8-9 may give us an indication of these righteous lines.

And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not journey on it; it will be for those who walk in that Way; wicked fools will not go about on it. No lion will be there, nor will any ferocious beast get up on it; they will not be found there. But only the redeemed will walk there. (NIV)

Note that there is a highway that the righteous will travel on, and the unrighteous are not permitted on this passageway. I would suggest that there might be a secondary understanding to this passage. While the scripture would primarily refer to those humans who are redeemed, it may also suggest another type of highway, i.e. a horizontal spiritual highway. Incidentally, Jacob’s ladder mentioned in Genesis may be a reference to a vertical highway. Perhaps the Lord has established these highways as locations of spiritual movement. Some have called them ‘portals’. Psalm 16:6 also speaks of lines.

The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. (NIV)

                  The corruption of these lines by the enemy would give permission for the enemy to utilize the lines for evil purposes. Isaiah 34:11 may speak of this.

God will stretch out over Edom the measuring line of chaos and the plumb line of desolation. (NIV)

This line of chaos could very easily refer to ley lines, and the plumb line of desolation could speak of what I call up-shoots, or vertical connecting lines between horizontal layers of ley lines. Could the enemy use these lines for communication and travel?

                  If it is true that the enemy has corrupted what the Lord had intended for good, then how did this happen?

When Adam and Eve sinned, they turned creation over to the enemy. Perhaps part of what was turned over was these lines. Romans 8:19-21 speaks of a time when we as the children of God will take back for the Lord what the enemy had captured.

The creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God. (NIV)

When we give our lives to Jesus Christ, we are given back authority over creation. However, we must exercise that authority and take back what was given to the enemy, and we can again establish the highways of holiness by asking the Lord to purify these lines. I do this by walking the length and width of a house and/or property, cutting off the contamination of the enemy. Note that slight change in terminology—once we understood that the ley lines are God’s creation, we began cutting off the contamination rather than cutting the lines themselves as we did initially. Incidentally, the Lord may actually position us at certain places so that we can take back specific areas. Acts 17:26 tells us that we are to establish His Kingdom where we live.

From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. (NIV)

As time passed, the Lord continued giving us new insight into ley lines. Although this book is about gates, doors, and the grid we had no understanding of these concepts when the following words were given. I was not until many years later we started receiving revelation that the contaminated lines were part of the grd.

February 9, 2009, from Persis Tiner:[3]

Networking, networking

Many the lines, which are not divine

Many the doors open to evil

Through these communication lines

Beware; beware

Be prepared; be prepared

The battle is brewing

Be not deceived

The enemy has prepared

To tap into these lines

Ley lines, ley lines

New lines to old lines

Time lines, key lines

Wrong lines for My lines

My lines are pure lines

That will get the job done

These lines are his, Satan’s, lines

To have his bad fun

Gather the elders

Gather them soon

Gather at AP (Aslan’s Place)

Just past the full moon

I’ll give you new wisdom

Revelation to impart

Do this and hurry

As you seek My pure heart

March 16, 2009, from Persis Tiner:

A Prophetic Rhyme

All around, all around

Danger, danger

All around

Entrapped, entrapped

You’ve been entrapped

By lies and deceits

From near and from far

Cleanse the lines

Ley lines, ley lines

Cleanse the lines

Phone lines, phone lines

Wires, wires

Are also involved

Cleanse the signals

Before you fall

Sneaky is the plan

And wide is the scope

The enemy has devised

To stop up the flow

In the heart of the matter

Foundations are involved

Deep, deep, these cracks go

And, yes, they prevent My pure flow

The flow of My spirit

The flow of My grace

The flow to bring heaven

To My heavenly place

You have the answers

You have the keys

Take counsel; take counsel

Many pieces you need

Remember the words

That you’ve heard recently

Change and new wineskins

Change and new sounds

Don’t chose the old ways

To bring forth new birth

You’ve now seen the enemy

You can be prepared

Shoot him down at the pass

Mow him over and laugh

April 10, 2009, from Persis Tiner regarding a meeting in Georgia:

There is a roar throughout the land

“Georgia, Georgia”

It does proclaim

The armies are coming

Coming to proclaim

The Way, The Way of The Lord

Clean off the ley lines

The roads and the hills

The Lord’s Army is coming

To make a great kill

The year of His vengeance

His vengeance is here

New sounds and vibrations

His army to bring

Bring for His Glory

Bring for The King

Bring healing; bring health

Bring peace and new hope

Restore breaches and walls

Restore words and great wealth

Restoring, renewing, revitalizing

Reversing the curses

Of sooo many years

Bringing the news of great hope

The armies are here

Here to restore order

Open heavens anew

Over Georgia, sweet Georgia

Holding My Bride sooo true

August 9, 2010, from Larry Pearson[4] in Collingwood, Canada:

Bringing you into new realms of revelation. Step in; step in to behold…this path you have not walked before. Take my hand as we take the land, as we gather up the ancient lines… As we gather we shall find the gold. We will find the gold as we gather. I am about to unlock the head. Quarter by quarter, line by line; your foe does not like this. He has been found out. It is time to focus beyond your default, beyond your battle. Step into the holy intention. Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit. Deeper revelation about the communication; the communication has been defiled…It is coming from the entities on the lines. It has been a generational hop. It has hopped off of one generation to another. It is connected to the void, the false universe…

April 17, 2012, from Persis Tiner:

It’s the convergence of evil

It sits on the grid

Where the doors and the gates

The ley lines and paths

Have been established by evil

Set way back in time

It’s evil; it’s evil

It’s high-level evil

Born of the fall

Empowered by Lucifer

Mingled with blood from the altars of hell

Waiting to be exposed by the church of this time

Unraveling, exposing

Layer upon layer

The time of its disposing

Is now, yes, it is now

So, what is practical application for all of this? We have witnessed some amazing results when contaminated ley lines were cleansed.

Donna and I have a friend who had just built a new home. Night after night she found it impossible to sleep. In desperation, she asked us to come over to the house to see what we discerned. As we walked into the master bedroom, I felt a large ley line running across her bed. We had her cut off the contamination, and that night she was able to sleep for the first time in her new bedroom.

A Swiss pastor and his wife tell an amazing story about their discovery of ley lines in a German home. They had been invited to pray for a crippled woman in a German village who had been stooped over for many years. As they prayed for her, they learned that there were witches living on each side of her home, and then discerned a large ley line running through her house. As they broke the contamination, she immediately stood up straight. She had been healed!

Perhaps freedom in your home is tied to breaking off the evil on these lines. Seek the Lord and see what He would have you do.

We are now introduced to the grid. More revelation was to come.
