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)
The End of the Age
May 4, 2010
Dear beloved, we are very close to the end of our present wicked age (eon).
On August 19, 2002, I heard: “A death is coming that will shock the world. When the pope
dies, know the end is near.” Frankly, at the time, I misunderstood this word on two levels. It is for
this reason that I record all that I hear or see and frequently refer to my notes for correction or further
First, I thought there were two separate deaths coming rather than seeing, as I do now, that it was one;
the death that would shock the world was the death of John Paul II that occurred on April 2, 2005.
Truly, the whole world mourned the loss of this man who was beloved by many. Recently, I did some
research on his death and learned that he died of septic “shock.” It was a death by shock that shocked
the world. Interestingly, the first pope to take the same name, John Paul I, died on September 28, 1978
after having been in office for only 33 days. The news of that day declared that his death was “a shock to
Second, I failed to see that the pope referred to was John Paul II. For some reason, I thought that this
word referred to a later pope. Actually, for some time now, I have been looking for the death of Benedict
16 who assumed the office of pope on April 24, 2005. Based on a prophecy, some believe him to be the
next to the last pope of our present age.
I want to underline that John Paul’s death by septic shock signaled that the end of our present age was
only near and that it had not come, which meant that we still had some time left on God’s clock until the
completion of Man’s Day. At the time, it was near, but how near was unknown.
As I have considered this word, I believe that the death by sepsis (septic shock) prophetically pointed to
the end or death of our present age through something that could be likened to sepsis. Obviously, the
medical profession has a technical definition of sepsis , but in simple terms, it refers to an infection that
becomes toxic to one or more of the systems of the body, which could lead to death.
Do you get the sense that the manmade systems that drive the nations of the world are infected with
something that is becoming more and more toxic? Consider the economic/financial systems that have
been in crisis since 2007 and the new sovereign debt crisis that could lead some EU countries into total
economic collapse and chaos if they are not bailed out. Or, consider the near collapse of trust in the US
political system that is often driven by power, control, and greed. I cannot think of any system that
governs or controls the life of the inhabitants of earth that does not have some form of sepsis in our day.
Add to this the obvious fact that the earth itself is shaking as if it had a toxin within its bowels that it
must eject. So far, this year alone we have seen many earthquakes exceeding 6.0, with a 7.0 quake
devastating Haiti and an 8.8 one devastating parts of Chile. Washington DC was hit with record
snowfalls that some dubbed “Snow Armageddon.” An earthquake hit near the Chicago area during a big
snowstorm. Rhode Island and Tennessee have had record-breaking floods. A volcanic eruption in
Iceland shut down the airline industry resulting in the cancellation of 4,000 flights. And now, we have
the potential for an unprecedented environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico as the earth spews out
oil from its bowels. These are only the tip of the iceberg.
However, I am not surprised at any of this, for on January 17, 2010, I heard: “Pray for the earth for
what is coming upon it. At first there will be little disturbances in all corners of the earth;
they will seem disconnected, but in short order you will see that they are connected. It
has begun; the final days of this age have begun. Record what you see and hear; you will
know. The final judgment of the inhabitants of the earth begins today.” Interestingly, on
January 20, 2010, I heard: “The eye of the storm.” People, if what we have experienced is only the
eye of the storm, which is the calmest part, then we are in for a mighty powerful storm.
As I reviewed my journal for the last decade, paying particular attention to what I believe the Lord has
spoken to me and the events that have transpired during this time, I have come to realize that the Lord
spoke to me from 2005 to 2007 that “the end is near” ; then from 2007 to 2008, His word changed to
“It is finished. The end has come. I am coming” ; then in 2009, I heard “I have come,” which is
the word the Lord gave me for 2010 (see issue #04-1001, January 1, 2010.) Do you see the progression?
It seems that each word has a two or three-year window. I did not see this until I searched my notes.
So that there is no misunderstanding, the end that is in sight is the end of our present age, not the end
of the world as in total destruction or annihilation.
Oh, to be sure, the wrath of God is coming, and for many, the road ahead will be mighty rough, but this
is necessary to make way for His righteous kingdom, for when the earth experiences Your
judgments the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness (Isaiah 26:9). The Lord has come
and nothing can or will stop Him from ushering in His kingdom, for the earth will be filled with
the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14).
He will do these things through His conquerors, the first fruits of the sons of God who are destined to
reign with Him, the Son of God, for a thousand years. He must bring this age to an end in order for His
conquerors to be manifested in glorified and immortal bodies and His kingdom to take root among the
nations through the ministry of His conquerors.
I have stated many times before that I believe the year 2010 is one of the most important years, if not
the most important, not only for the world but especially for those who love the appearing of the Lord
(2 Timothy 4:8) and are longing to see the love of their life. I can only dream that “I have come” means
we will see Him face to face, sooner than later. May it be so!
I want to leave you with a few words that I have heard, along with some comments.
February 27, 1995: “When you see the structures crumble, testify of My kingdom.” Comment: This
occurred on September 11, 2001 when the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center crumbled.
September 24, 2001: “A rare earthquake is coming. You will know the end has come by a major
earthquake.” Comment: Could this refer to the December 26, 2004 Indonesian tsunami? In my area,
homeowners insurance for earthquake damage increased by 300% from 2009 to 2010. Prophetic?
August 12, 2003: “A volcanic eruption will occur, the likes of which has not been seen for centuries.”
Comment: If the Icelandic volcanic eruption, which was a comparatively small eruption, resulted in a
$2 billion loss to the airline industry, think about the impact of an eruption of the century.
February 26, 2005: “500,000 in one hour. Great change is coming.” Comment: We have seen several
events that have impacted 500,000. Is one coming that will lead to this many being killed in one event?
2007-2008: “A crisis is coming; tumult is coming; great storm is coming.” Comment: A financial crisis
came that nearly brought about a worldwide collapse of the financial system. But, the latest sovereign
debt crisis reveals how fragile the so-called “recovery” is. I believe total collapse is on the horizon.
February 10, 2009: “A death is coming the likes of which no one has ever seen.” Comment: Many things
can go into a death, such as countries, manmade systems, economies, etc.
March 16, 2010: “The storm clouds are rising on the horizon. The tide is rising. The flood of My Spirit
has reached its peak; it will begin to flow. Nothing can stop what I am about to do. The time is up.”
March 20, 2010: “An asteroid is coming.” Comment: On April 8, 2010, an unexpected asteroid, 2010
GA6, passed within 223,000 miles of the earth at 23 GMT. The number 23 signifies death .
April 24, 2010: “The impetuous Chaldeans are here.” Comment: I will explain later.
April 25, 2010: “Darkness, thick darkness is descending upon the nations.”
Be encouraged; this is good news. The kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ is coming!
