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)

Great Cataclysmic Upheaval
January 30, 2012
Over the last ten years or so I have heard many words from the Lord about impending disasters, tumults,
crises, shakings, etc. To date, many of these things have come about or been confirmed or have
appeared in embryonic form as preliminary warnings from the Lord who is merciful. There are some that
have not happened yet, but this does not mean they will not occur. It just means that we must transcend
time ; a word the Lord clearly gave to me in 2008 and confirmed in 2009. Much, but not all, of what the
Lord has revealed to me I have reported on in many of my writings. More recently, I added a prophetic
section to my web site to report on some of the major ones.
Please understand that my motive for sharing these things is not self-centered. Recently, the Lord told
me that I must report what He speaks to me; I must warn His people. Frankly, up to this point, I have felt
restrained to do so. Who will listen? Aren't I sharing things people within and without the Church already
know or are being told by countless other voices? These are the types of questions that have followed
me over the years. However, at this juncture in history, I no longer have a choice in the matter. It matters
not that others are speaking or what they are speaking.
In this regard, I was reviewing my journals going back over ten years and discovered a word from the
Lord that I had long forgotten.
At 4:25 am, on July 9, 1999 , I heard:
"Great cataclysmic upheaval is coming, the likes of which man has never seen or will see
again. I will shake the heavens and the earth and this will shake the institutions of the world.
In that day, no man will stand; no man will deny that it is the Lord who does such things. All
will see that it is the Lord but not all will turn to the Lord God Almighty. Prepare your heart
for the days that are coming."
According to God's Word, we know that He is going to shake the heavens and the earth (Haggai 2:6, 21-
22; Hebrews 12:26-27), so this word is not unusual or unique. God said He would do it, and it will be
done until the Kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ has overtaken the kingdom of this world, for we
receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken (Hebrews 12:28; Revelation 11:15).
The challenge that I see for most people is that they cannot fathom such a thing happening in their own
day or in their own land, especially in the United States that thinks it is nearly invincible. Most people
want to ignore the possibility and hope for the best. Others would rather live in denial, so they eat, drink,
and be merry for tomorrow they might die. And yet, others sort of get it, but they live in fear and are
making all sorts of survival preparations for the worst possible scenarios.
As Christians, how are we to respond to such a word? Well, the Lord has given us the answer: Prepare
your heart for the days that are coming . In other words, He is after a heart preparation, not a material
preparation. This is not to say He will not lead us to make material preparations, but the most important
preparation is of the heart. He is after hearts that are sold out to Him and are living in His presence,
readied to literally meet Him, not hearts that are fighting against His judgments that are coming and, in
fact, have come in some measure. Time is running out to repent and turn to the Lord.
Heart preparation requires abiding in Him, standing in His council in intimacy, knowing Him as our trust,
seeking Him, hearing Him, and, most of all, loving Him, among other things.
The Upward Call: #06-1205 [563]

We need to be like the five wise virgins and make preparations to meet the Bridegroom. Can you hear
the midnight cry off in the distance but growing louder: "Behold, the Bridegroom! Come out to meet
Him" (Matthew 25:6)? I can!
Considering the many things that have happened since the beginning of the 21 st century, there is no
doubt that the heat of judgment has been turned up, so to speak. Clearly, regional events on this order
have occurred, and there have been man-made crises that have shaken the institutions of the world,
such as the financial crisis of 2008 that was foreshadowed by the collapse of the World Trade Center
seven years earlier and is still with us. However, we have yet to see a great cataclysmic event or series
of events that shakes heaven and earth and the institutions of the entire world simultaneously through
which no man can stand. In a great sense, the coming manifestation of the Kingdom of God on earth, in
its own right, will be an upheaval the likes of which no man has ever seen.
The one event that, perhaps, is the closest to this word from the Lord is the Japanese 8.9 earthquake,
tsunami, and nuclear meltdown that occurred on March 11, 2011. I have shared on this before, especially
in light of a dream I received about a FedEx box truck flying in the air and crashing to the ground. See
Prophetic P#27. I believe much is being withheld from the world public about the devastation of this one
event. The point is that this cataclysmic event is a forerunner of the fulfillment of the 1999 word.
Consider some of the major events that have occurred in our new millennium. You may recall others, but
these are some of the ones I have recorded in my journal. Mind you, I have left out many other events,
such as the devastating tornadoes that have hit and continue to hit the US each year or the turmoil in the
Middle East that has toppled nations and dictators. What follows are only some shakings. During this
period, there have been far too many earthquakes to report on in this issue.
September 11, 2001
World Trade Center attacked and crumbled to the ground;
nearly 3,000 killed in all locations attacked
December 26, 2004
Indonesia 9.1 quake and tsunami; killed upwards of
280,000; 1.69 million people displaced

Worst snowstorms in centuries hit Washington DC, the
Mid-Atlantic, and the Northeast. Dubbed "snowmaggedon."
One storm was likened to a snow hurricane. Chicago had a
major snowstorm and quake on the same day
February 26, 2010
Chile 8.8 quake, followed by a 6.0 quake in Argentina.
Structures crumbled
September 4, 2010; February 22, 2011

Let us not fight against His judgments; let us turn to the Lord with a whole heart that loves the very love
of our life, the Lord Jesus! He alone is our way through to the end and into His glory of the next age.
