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)
Prophetic Events: Little by Little
February 11, 2011
Some months back, I made a notation on my calendar to pay attention to events on February 10-11,
2011. There is a reason why. It seems that the Lord either speaks to me on these days, or some
significant event occurs someplace in the world on them. I have come to realize that these dates are a
prophetic window into God's divine plan to usher in the Kingdom of the Son of His love.
Ten years ago, on February 10, 2001, I heard " Little by little ," which is based on the Lord's promise to
the sons of Israel that He would take the land of Canaan gradually and not all at once, until they
became fruitful and they took possession of the land.
(29) "I will not drive them out before you in a single year, that the land may not become desolate
and the beasts of the field become too numerous for you. (30) "I will drive them out before you
little by little, until you become fruitful and take possession of the land. (Exodus 23:29-30 NASB)
Eight years later on February 10, 2009, I was given a word in three parts: 1) "There will be no more
cancer in My conquerors." 2) "Thus saith the Lord: 'I have lifted up a hammer over the United
States, and I am about to strike at the very heart of the nation.'" 3) "A death is coming the likes
of which no one has ever seen."
I realize the tendency to take prophetic words at face value as if they are literal events, but we must
spiritually discern them. The removal of cancer could refer to the removal of all sin, or even the first
resurrection and transfiguration of the Lord's conquerors or overcomers that commences the
The hammer refers to the word of the Lord: "Is not My word like fire?" declares the LORD, "and like
a hammer which shatters a rock? (Jeremiah 23:29 NASB). Thus, the Lord is going to speak a word
that will touch the heart of the nation, which most likely refers to our capital, Washington DC, and the
Federal government that emanates from there.
The death that is coming could refer to any one of a number of things. In addition to the obvious, it
could be a spiritual death of sorts or the demise of Mystery Babylon or the end of a nation or dramatic
change in the Middle East. We just do not know, so we must wait to see how things unfold and seek for
To add to this, one year later, on February 10, 2010, I did not hear a word, but the news of the day was
rather telling. Chicago, Illinois, the hometown of President Obama, had a 4.3 quake in the midst of a big
snowstorm that was blasting Washington DC as well. It was the worst snowstorm in DC since 1899,
and it literally shut down the capital city on the 11 th .
At the same time, Iran announced that it had enriched uranium, in defiance of the demand not to by the
US and other nations. This occurred on the 31 st anniversary of the Iranian Revolution . On February
11, 1979, the regime of the Shah of Iran completely collapsed.
Now, we come to February 10-11, 2011. For the last 17-18 days, the events unfolding in Egypt have
captivated the news. It has been interesting, if not exasperating, to listen to all the so-called experts,
pundits, politicians, and commentators analyze the situation and what they think it means to the
Egyptian people, to the West, and to Israel. At this point, the best answer is that no one knows,
especially now that Hosni Mubarak has stepped down and handed power over to the military.
Also, again, today (the 11 th ) is the 32 nd anniversary of the Iranian Revolution.
But there is more, for Chile just experienced 6.8 and 5.3 quakes near Concepcion , almost the exact
same spot that it experienced a devastating 8.8 quake nearly a year ago on February 27, 2010. I wrote
about this quake and Concepcion. Please see issue #04-1021, March 2, 2010, Chile Quake .
Do you see, as I do, a pattern building in relation to the date of February 10-11? I do not believe this is
a coincidence; rather, it is the hand of God as He shakes heaven and earth in order to remove those
things which can be shaken so that those things which cannot be shaken will remain . He is
shaking all things because His conquerors receive a kingdom that cannot be shaken (Hebrews
When I heard "little by little" ten years ago, I had some idea what it meant prophetically. After all, it is
about taking possession of the land, which signifies the conquering sons of God taking possession of
their glorified, celestial, spiritual, immortal bodies in the image of the Son of God. It is not about
possessing some piece of real estate on earth. It is about possessing our heavenly abode or tent that
Paul longed for, as recorded in 2 Corinthians 5:1-5. See issues #05-111, January 11, 2011, When is
Immortality Put On? , and #05-1112, January 12, 2011, At Home with the Lord .
To state it another way, it is about taking possession of the kingdom.
(21) "I kept looking, and that horn was waging war with the saints and overpowering them (22)
until the Ancient of Days came and judgment was passed in favor of the saints of the Highest
One, and the time arrived when the saints took possession of the kingdom. (Daniel 7:21-22
'Then the sovereignty, the dominion and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole
heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Highest One; His kingdom will be an
everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him.' (Daniel 7:27 NASB)
The events of our day, especially in the last ten years, are all part of God's divine plan to bring our
present age to an end and to usher in the Kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ. The Stone Kingdom is
shaking and crushing the kingdoms of men that have defied His divine law and have been blinded to
His divine plan. This is why we are seeing national and global events occurring alongside of natural
shakings, both in the heavens (climate, weather) and of the earth (quakes, tsunamis).
Many people are stating that the fall of the 30-year Mubarak regime is an historic event. On one level,
this is so obvious that it is not even necessary that it be said. However, on another level, this is a gross
Frankly, as I have listened to all the commentary on this event, I feel that no one has a clue, for they,
without exception, are failing to discern that this is all part of God's divine plan and the coming of His
Kingdom of righteousness as the King of kings ascends the throne over the nations and rules through
His conquerors. I find much of the commentary very naïve, even from the ones who seem to have a
clear understanding of the danger that the Egyptian people now face. Some are saying that this is a
great step toward democracy, and others are saying that this is heading toward an Islamic state ruled
by Sharia law.
People can postulate all they want, but there is One who is seated on the throne of heaven who has the
first and last say in the matter, and He is working it all out according to His plan. There might be very
difficult days ahead for the Egyptian people, as well as the entire Middle East, but we can be assured of
one thing: God is working all things toward good, according to His purpose (Romans 8:28) as He
establishes His kingdom on earth little by little .
