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)
A Very Little While; He Will Come
March 6, 2010
I am especially burdened these days to warn and exhort any who have an ear to hear. We are in the final
days of the last days of our present wicked (evil) eon (age), as Paul called it (Galatians 1:4). God’s
appointed time has not been delayed but will come in a very little while.
(37) For, yet a very little while, and the One coming will come, “and will not delay.”
Hab.2:3 (38) “But the just shall live by faith;” “and if he draws back,” “My soul is not
pleased in him.” Hab. 2:4; Zeph. 1:6; Mal. 1:10 (Hebrews 10:37-38 LITV)
Until He comes, we are to live by faith. Don’t give up; don’t get discouraged; don’t let up; but look up!
Faith tells us that the love of our life is coming to reveal Himself to those who love His appearing and
are longing to see Him. Let us press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of
God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14). We will not be disappointed.
Now, having offered these encouraging words, we need to understand that this earth and the nations of
the earth are going to be shaken and the structures that are built on sand must crumble to make way for
the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ (Revelation 11:15). The earth’s movement (i.e., earthquakes)
does not cause death and destruction; it is the structures that are built upon the earth that do.
On February 27, 1995, the Lord spoke to me: “When the structures crumble, testify of My
kingdom.” See the last issue #04-1022, March 5, 2010. In our day, throughout the world, we are
witnessing many man-made structures crumbling on many different fronts.
The first decade of the 21st century has been a time of challenge that began with the structures of the
World Trade Center crumbling in one hour, as a prototype of Mystery Babylon falling in one hour
(see Revelation 18). The twin towers represented the global financial system , the financial beast of
Babylon that the US was yoked to in 1913-1914 with the enactment of the Federal Reserve Act and its
banking cartel. Seven years later, the world began to witness the demise of this beast that almost fell on
September 18, 2008 but did not because it was not God’s appointed time for it to fall. However, the day
will come. Today, the danger is sovereign debt and the possible collapse of some European countries;
a trend that I believe started with Dubai and some believe now will spread from countries such as
Greece, Portugal, Ireland, and Spain to the UK and then to the US. With trillions of dollars of debt
piling up in many nations and fewer buyers of that debt, there is mounting danger that this house of
cards could come down like dominoes.
In the natural realm , the year 2010 has begun with a mighty shaking, as well, with two major
devastating earthquakes in the Caribbean/South American region. But other areas of the world also
have experienced traumatic weather events, such as hurricane-force snowstorms. Even Chicago, the
home of Barack Obama, had an earthquake (no damage) in the midst of a snowstorm. Are these all
coincidences, or are they indications of the shaking that must come or of the birth pangs prophesied by
our Lord Jesus? See issue #04-1020, March 1, 2010, Shaking Has Purpose .
In the realm of terrorism , which began for the US on September 11, 2001, the Jihadists have
become more active, and there are concerns that they will make further attempts to bring destruction to
the US shores. Now, we are faced with potential student unrest that some report is backed by anti-
American revolutionary groups with ideological ties to the Jihadists. See issue #04-1007, January 19,
2010, Do Not Fear, But Take Courage .
Further, I believe the Lord spoke to me that He has lifted up a hammer (His word) over the US and is
about to strike at the heart of the nation. See issues #03-0947, March-April 2009, A Hammer Which
Shatters A Rock . The Lord is judging the corrupt US political system that is likened to cords of
falsehood tied to the American people. Our politicians speak falsehood to one another, and God is
going to judge this falsehood to release His people from it. See issues #02-08125, September 30, 2008,
The Cords of Falsehood , and #02-08132, October 23, 2008, The Cord of Corruption is Cut .
If I have heard and interpreted the Lord correctly, shaking will be like waves moving across the globe,
and these waves are moving toward my beloved country and will arrive soon. On January 20, 2010, I
heard that we are in the “eye of the storm.” It is only a matter of time until the wall of the eye hits, much
like the judgment of Hurricane Katrina that hit New Orleans on August 29, 2005.
I believe that, in the natural realm, the Chile earthquake portends the magnitude of what is coming. In
the most recent issues (#04-1017, #04-1021, and #04-1022), I mentioned the number 53 as an
indication of this possibility but have not fully elaborated on it, at least as I see it at this point.
The number 53 is the number of countries in the Pacific Rim that were notified of the potential for a
tsunami after the 8.8 Chilean quake. I also reported about a dream that I had of I-465 , the 53-mile
federal highway around the capital city of Indiana, and how I believe this is an indication of the
judgment that is coming upon the corrupt US political system. On February 14, 2010, exactly one year
after I had a dream of this abandoned highway, it was reported that a significant announcement was
going to be made the next day by Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana. He announced his retirement from the
Senate and offered a rather scathing indictment or judgment of the political system.
The tsunami that hit Hawaii and the US Pacific coast did not amount to more than 1-3 foot waves, so it
caused no significant damage. However, it seems to me that as one of the 53 nations, it was a sign that
more is to come. The shakings will come like little waves that, over time, will intensify in frequency and
severity, just like birth pangs.
Shortly after I wrote on the I-465 dream (issue #04-1017), I discovered that the gematria for each of the
phrases “King of Peace,” “the judgments of Yahweh,” “to pour or shed forth,” and “a breaking or
smashing” is 465. Truly, each of these phrases fits well with how I have interpreted this dream with
what I know to date. In concluding issue #04-1017, I stated: “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.
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.”
Dear beloved, the judgments of Yahweh are upon us and more are coming to make way for the King of
Peace and His peacemakers, for they are the sons of God (Matthew 5:9). This is the good news.
Before concluding, I have a few loose ends to tie up. First, I have written much on the tumult that has
come and that is coming, but recently, I discovered that the gematria for the Hebrew word for tumult is
61, as found in Jeremiah 3:23: “Surely, the hills are a deception, a tumult the mountains.”
Mountains refer to kingdoms; thus, the kingdoms (i.e., nations) are in tumult so that they will begin to
yield to the coming kingdom of our Lord. I have reported that the number 61 signifies the six days (6)
of man followed by the seventh day (1) of the Lord, which yields 7 days (6+1) . See issue #03-0928,
February 19, 2009, The Numbers 61 & 37 .
Second, I have made the point many times that we need to transcend time, which means “to go beyond
the limits of time.” I offered a personal illustration of this in issue #03-0989, August 17, 2009,
Transcend Time. The Deal is Done . Based on my experience with the Lord, the date on which He speaks
of an event may be the exact date it is manifested in a future year. To me, this adds meaning to “Your
will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). When the Lord speaks, He speaks of it
as done; it is done in heaven with a view to its manifestation on earth. We are to wait for it, even endure
for it. “ Yet a very little while, and the One coming will come, and will not delay.”
