Defiling Topheth - The Apostles Are Coming!

Hollie L. Moody - July, 2003

2 Kings 23:10 ~ "And he defiled To-pheth, which is in the valley of the children of Hin-nom, that no man might make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire to Molech.

Isaiah 30:31-33 ~ "{31} For through the voice of the Lord shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod. {32} And in every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which the Lord shall lay upon him, it shall be with tabrets and harps: and in battles of shaking will he fight with it. {33} For To-phet is ordained of old; yea, for the king it is prepared; he hath made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of the Lord, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it."

1 Corinthians 3:16 ~ "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?"

1 Corinthians 12:18 ~ "But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him."

1 Corinthians 11:34(b) ~ "And the rest will I set in order when I come."


In a vision, I saw the form of a man dressed in kingly garments. I felt in my spirit that this man was actually the King of Kings (Jehovah God). In one of His hands, the King held a rod. In His other hand, He held a staff. On the right hand and on the left hand of the King stood a person. I couldn't tell if these people were male or female.

The King and the two people were standing before a large temple. As I stared at the temple, I became aware that a human body was contained within this temple. I was surprised and sickened to see that this large human body was headless. This body also appeared to have body parts and members of its body that "shifted" from one position to another so that the body wasn't properly put together. Some body parts also seemed to be missing.

"What is this thing that is a temple but also a human body?" I asked the King.

"This is My church," the King replied.

At a word from the King, the two people at His right and left side approached the body-temple. I saw that one of these people held what appeared to be a large measuring tape in their hands. The other person had what appeared to be a scale with which to weigh things in their hands. After they reached the body-temple, these two people began to measure and to weigh the body-temple.

"Who are these two people," I asked the King, "and why are they measuring and weighing Your church?"

"These two people represent both the prophetic and the apostolic spirit that I have and am releasing to measure and weigh My church," the King replied.

After measuring and weighing the body-temple, these two people rejoined the King. I saw as these two people appeared to give their report of the measuring and weighing of the body-temple to the King. The King appeared grieved with their report and stretched forth the rod in His hand towards the body-temple.

One of the people at His side (the one who represented the prophetic spirit) went back to the body-temple, entered into the body-temple and began to shake the body-temple from within. I saw numerous items begin to come crashing down from inside the body-temple. As these items were shaken loose and fell, the person who had entered into the body-temple began to cast these things out of the body-temple. I noticed that this person was weeping as they were bringing apparent destruction to many things within the body-temple.

While this was happening, I saw that the body-temple was attempting to cast this person out.

"What is this person doing to Your church?" I asked the King.

"This is the prophetic spirit which is tearing down all that offends within My church," the King replied. "There are those who have sought to tear down these things before, yet the time was not full come, and the spirits of those whom I would have sent were not yet perfect before Me. This is a time of purging for My church, and for casting out all that offends Me and is not fully of My truth. Those whom I am sending to do this work will do so with weeping, not with laughter. For they now realize and understand that My church is not an organization, but a people called by My Name, and that My church is not to be destroyed but to be set up. My church will not fully understand what is transpiring during this time of being shaken and cast down. The prophetic spirit, and My prophets, will for the most part be fiercely resisted during this time."

I saw that the body-temple was unsteady, reeling back and forth, etc., as it was being shaken. The body-temple appeared to be in great distress. The body-temple finally fell heavily to its knees. While the body-temple was on its knees in weakness, I saw hordes of demonic beings gather to attack the body-temple. I then saw what appeared to be a very small army of warriors come together to surround the body-temple and to protect and fight for it.

"Who are these warriors?" I asked the King.

"This small army of warriors are those whom have come out of times and seasons of intense preparation for just this time," the King said to me. "I have allowed them to be prepared in the furnace and fires of affliction for their strengthening in order to defend My church during what appears to be its weakest moment."

The King withdrew the outstretched rod and set it down on the ground at His feet. The person from within the body-temple emerged, still weeping, and came back to stand next to the King.

The King then stretched the staff in His hand out towards the body-temple. The King handed what appeared to be a blueprint and a list of instructions to the other person standing next to Him. The other person standing next to the King then entered into the body-temple. I watched as this person began to set the members of the body-temple into their correct positions and places according to the blueprint and the instructions they held in their hand.

"Who is this person?" I asked the King.

"This person represents the spirit of the apostolic," the King replied. "I am releasing this spirit and these people to set in order all within My church. They will do so according to My will and plan and not according to their own ideas or agenda. Their efforts also will many times be resisted and rejected. Yet I have prepared the hearts and spirits of these people through times of great difficulty. They have the heart and spirit of a father towards My church. They possess great compassion and patience, and will exercise this patient love while obeying My instructions."

While this person was working at setting each member and part of the body into its correct position within the body-temple, the demonic hordes continued to fight against the body-temple. The small, but fierce, army of warriors continued to fight against the demons and to defend the body-temple.

When all the body parts and members appeared to be in correct order within the body-temple, the other person emerged from the body-temple and rejoined the King and the other person standing next to the King. Yet the body-temple continued to be headless.

When the second person rejoined Him, the King took the staff in His hand and thrust it deeply into the ground at His feet.

"Why did You thrust Your staff into the ground?" I asked the King.

"The staff of a shepherd guides and protects his sheep," the King replied. "My guidance and protection for My sheep is forever settled."

I watched as one by one, each member and part of the body-temple came out of the body-temple and approached the King. Each one of these members and parts of the body presented themselves to the King. I watched as the King held out His hands, placed both His hands upon each of the body members and parts of the body, and blessed that body member or part of the body. After being blessed, that body member or part of the body would then reenter back into the body-temple and take back up their correct place and position within the body-temple.

I saw, however, that there were some members and parts of the body-temple who refused to come before the King. These members and parts of the body attempted to gather into a smaller body within the body-temple. They succeeded in doing this to a small degree, but seemed unaware that this effort on their part had isolated them from the full nourishment of the rest of the body-temple. They also seemed totally unaware that they continued to be headless.

"What is happening?" I asked the King. "Why are some of the members and parts of the body-temple presenting themselves to You, and others are not?"

"Each part and member of this body represents a specific function within My church," the King replied. "After My church is brought back into correct alignment and position, it will present itself before Me for My inspection and blessing. Each ministry and function of the church must be fully submitted to Me in order to function properly. There are some who will resist this, to their own eventual destruction."

Then, the King lifted into the air and settled Himself into the position of head of the body-temple. When this occurred, the body-temple seemed to somehow become within itself five major body sections.

These five major sections of the body-temple were all connected and interwoven with one another. The body-temple appeared to be in complete harmony with all the other members and parts of the body, and was functioning perfectly.

"What are these five major sections of the body?" I asked the King.

"These five major sections of the body represent My apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers," the King explained to me. "They each have a specific function and use within My church and are in place to equip and build up My body."

The two people who had been standing on the right side and on the left side of the King approached the body-temple and stood before it. I saw as these two people joined hands. They raised their enjoined hands out towards the body-temple and began to bless and also to serve the body-temple.

"Why have these two people joined hands?" I asked the King.

"The apostles and prophets will work hand in hand during this time," the King answered me.

I then saw as the body-temple changed in its appearance and became as a bride dressed in bridal clothes. The bride then suddenly appeared to be standing with both feet firmly upon the planet earth. When this happened, milk, honey, oil, water and fire began to pour out from within the bride.

Then I saw large groups of people from every nation on earth suddenly appear around the bride. These groups of people were singing, praising the Lord, rejoicing, being healed of infirmities, etc.

Then the vision ended.


Micah 4:1-2 ~ "{1} But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. {2} And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem."
