THE UPWARD CALL
Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet;
but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead,
I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God
IN CHRIST JESUS.
(Philippians 3:13-14 NASB)
February 17, 2010
As Scripture says, old men shall dream dreams (Acts 2:17), and I have a dream to share, one that I
believe has prophetic meaning in our day as God shakes not only the earth but also the heaven. He is
once again shaking all things in the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of
created things, so that those things that cannot be shaken may remain (Hebrews 12:25-29).
God has promised that He is going to shake the heavens and the earth, and this includes the shaking of
kingdoms or nations and their political systems that prevail over the inhabitants of the world.
“I will overthrow the thrones of kingdoms and destroy the power of the kingdoms of the
nations; and I will overthrow the chariots and their riders, and the horses and their
riders will go down, everyone by the sword of another.” (Haggai 2:22 NASB)
In modern-day language, the chariots and horses could be likened to the political systems of power that
keep the leaders in control over the people. Chariots and horses are modes of transportation and signify
the modes (systems) that keep (transport) the leaders in power. The sword that is wielded one against
another is the words of falsehood that proceed out of their mouths.
(2) They speak falsehood to one another; with flattering lips and with a double heart they
speak. (3) May the LORD cut off all flattering lips, the tongue that speaks great things; (4)
who have said, “With our tongue we will prevail; our lips are our own; who is lord over
us?” (Psalm 12:2-4 NASB)
The good news is that God is shaking and will continue to shake the kingdoms of this world until their
power is destroyed and the voices in heaven announce: “The kingdom of the world has become
the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever [ages of the
ages (REB); eons of the eons (CV)]” (Revelation 11:15 NASB). Praise God and give Him glory!
Do not be persuaded by the many voices of Babel (Mystery Babylon) that say things are getting better
and “we will prevail.” God will prevail, not man. God’s end is that “they may know that You alone,
whose name is the LORD, are the Most High over all the earth” (Psalm 83:18).
Now, I want to share a dream that I had one year ago on February 14, 2009.
My wife and I were traveling someplace in the US. I saw a dirt road that went straight down a valley and
up a hill. To my right, I saw an old worn sign hidden behind some brush. It was an interstate highway
sign―the distinctive red and blue signs that designate the federal highway system that weaves its way
throughout our country. The number on the sign was 465. Off to the right was a town. At first, I thought
that we were to travel on I-465, but it looked as if it were either unfinished or abandoned. Instead, we
turned right into the adjacent town. I was given the impression that this trip was going to be difficult or
convoluted in some way, as if it were not going to be on major roads but on smaller roads through many
small towns. The buildings in this particular town reminded me of something out of the 1930’s. Then a
woman spoke to us that we should look around the town and take note of the marvelous glass ceilings in
these buildings. I recall looking up and actually seeing a glass ceiling. The dream ended.
Three questions came to mind as I sought for the meaning of the dream: Is there some spiritual
meaning to the number 465? Is I-465 a real highway and, if so, where is it? Was there any news on this
day that could be connected to I-465?
First, the number 465 divided by 5 yields the number 93, which is also a factor of 3 times 31. According
to biblical gematria, the number 31 signifies God , and the number 93 signifies love and the sons the
God . Please see issue #02-08157, December 25, 2008, The Number 93―Sons of God’s Love , and article
#18, February 2008, When the Day Comes  , pages 21-26.
Second, I-465 is the interstate beltway that encircles Indianapolis, the capital of the state of Indiana.
This 53-mile rectangular stretch of road, which was built from 1959-1970, has seven junctions with
other interstate highways and is known for its many car accidents. This led me to believe that
something significant was going to happen in relation to Indianapolis and, most likely, in relation to
government or politics since this is the state’s capital. The Lord has spoken to me to transcend time, so I
knew that the significance would come to light later. Based on previous experiences with the Lord, I
expected to see something manifested close to 2/14 in the next year or two. He didn’t let me down!
Third, apart from the 14 th being Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2009 is also known as the very same day
that the US Congress passed the historic $787 billion Stimulus Bill , which the president signed three
days later on the 17 th . It was historic in that it dramatically increased the US debt, increasing our status
as a debtor nation and placing us under greater bondage to our creditors. The US is no longer owned by
the people but by other nations and the wealthy elite of the global financial system, that is, Mystery
Babylon. Essentially, the US has been mortgaged nearly to the point that we might never be able to pay
off the debt without much higher taxes and inflation.
As of today, I cannot state that I have a complete understanding of this dream, but exactly one year
later, on February 15, 2010, something of great political significance occurred in relation to Indiana.
Senator Evan Bayh, a so-called moderate or centrist Democrat from Indiana, announced that he was
not going to run for reelection. In his remarks, he stated that he loved serving the people of his state but
that he did not love Congress. This last statement was quite an indictment of the institution that both he
and his father, Birch, have served in.
True to form, the politicians and pundits are in a frenzy trying to explain this move that has been
described by some as a “political bombshell” in its impact. Of course, some are cynical of Mr. Bayh’s
motive for retiring from the Senate, and the opposing party smells blood and is ready to go in for the
kill, politically speaking, to get a Republican elected to his seat in November of this year.
My assessment is that none of them have a clue as to what God is up to in our day. The politicians and
pundits simply see all that is happening as part of the game of politics and power. They all are in for a
surprise as God brings judgment on a system that is buttressed by corruption, hypocrisy, lies, and
falsehood. The cords of falsehood are going to be cut soon. It has been nearly 2 years (February 28,
2008) since I dreamed of these cords being cut. See issues #02-08125, September 30, 2008, The Cords
of Falsehood , and #02-08132, October 23, 2008, The Cord of Corruption is Cut .
I believe that since I-465 is a federal highway around a state capital, signifying government, and the
highway in the dream was an abandoned dirt road, Evan Bayh’s indictment of Congress speaks of God’s
judgment of the US federal government and the political system that drives it. The fact that the dream
also came on the day that the failed Stimulus Bill was passed by Congress adds further light on the
matter. Simply, through this senator, God spoke His judgment of an immoral, corrupt system that has
shackled the American people with the cords of falsehood.
To add to this, something else occurred. On February 16, 2010, I heard a humming sound all night long,
very similar to what I heard on July 5, 2008, that proved, admittedly, in a rather unusual manner, to be
a prophetic indication that “tumult is coming.” There is no doubt that tumult began a few months later
during September 2008. See issue #02-0890, July 10, 2008, The Day is Near―Tumult . Interestingly,
on February 23, 2009, almost exactly one year ago, I heard the same humming sound all night long.
More tumult is coming! The kingdom of men is on a collision course (as in a car wreck) with the
kingdom of Christ, and what is coming could look like the 1930’s. Do not fear, but rejoice.
This change is going to be both good and bad. On the bad side, very difficult and tumultuous days are
coming. On the good side, the number 465 speaks of God’s love for the world, even in judgment, and the
coming manifestation of the sons of God. This may be the meaning of the glass ceiling that I saw in the
dream. Endure a bit longer.
The Lord is coming to transfigure the conquering sons into His immortal and glorified image and to
establish His kingdom over the nations through His body of conquerors.
