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)

Judgment of the US Political System
February 1, 2012
I must share the burden the Lord has placed on my heart to warn of impending upheaval. Without doubt,
we can be assured that many more things are about to be shaken, much like the created things that have
been shaken so far in our new century. But a day is fast approaching when God will lower the hammer
and bring about a great cataclysmic upheaval. It is coming, for the Kingdom of Christ is coming. The fact
of the matter is that the manifestation on earth of the Kingdom of the Son of God's love, in its own right,
will be the greatest upheaval this world has ever known.
For Christians, the questions are: Like the five wise virgins, will you be ready? Are you watching and
waiting? Are you preparing your heart to meet the love of your life? Are you standing in the intimacy of
His council? Are you a conqueror through Him who loves you? Have you set your mind on above? Are
you seeking first His Kingdom and Righteousness? Are you storing up your treasures in heaven? Do you
love the appearing of the Lord? Well, I leave you with these questions, for this is not the subject of this
issue.
In light of the coming upheaval, what is on my heart for this issue is the fact that God is judging the
political system of the United States. Yes, God is judging this corrupt system, but I do not believe that we
have seen the full force of His judgments that will ultimately transform it into His government. I have no
doubt that this will occur, and probably sooner than later.
I have shared on this subject in many other writings, but I want to pull it together in this one issue so that
the point is not missed. I especially want to do this in light of the fact that so many Christians are
embroiled in the politics of our day and the election season that is in full swing. To this end, the following
are some words the Lord has spoken to me and some things I have seen in relation to the political
system, some of which are so obvious that they are hardly worth mentioning.
The first indication I received of the judgment of the political system came with a dream that I had on
February 28, 2008 and which the Lord interpreted for me on September 16, 2008 . See Prophetic P#16.
The dream revealed that the American people are tied to a political system by cords of falsehood. Isaiah
has a word about this.
(18) Woe to those who drag iniquity with the cords of falsehood , and sin as if with cart ropes ; …
(20) Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light
for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! (21) Woe to those who are wise
in their own eyes and clever in their own sight! (Isaiah 5:18, 20-21 NASB)
Is there any doubt that our current political system matches this description? Just listen to what comes
forth from Washington DC, and it is hardly necessary to make the point. To add to this, on November 29,
2010 , the Lord spoke to me: "Woes have come!" Interestingly, there are three woes in the above
verses.
The good news is that the Lord has assured me that these cords of lies or falsehood will be cut.
Second, in line with this word, on March 11, 2008 , I was given a very clear dream of the Titanic sinking
as an indication of the total collapse of the financial system. See Prophetic #P17. I believe judgment of
our political system goes hand-in-hand with judgment of the financial system (Mystery Babylon) because
both are based on greed, and the political system is what has yoked us to a corrupt financial system.
Third, after these, I began to hear such things as "Tumult is coming" (July 5-8, 2008), "A great storm
is coming" (July 15, 2008), and "Crisis is coming" (September 23, 2008).

Fourth, on February 10, 2009 , I heard: "Thus saith the Lord, 'I have lifted up a hammer over the
United States, and I am about to strike at the heart of the nation.'" See Prophetic P#25. The heart of
the nation could be the literal central region of America or our capital city. I have held that it is the latter,
since this is what drives the entire country, whether good or bad. The hammer is the fiery word of God.
"Is not My word like fire?" declares the LORD, "and like a hammer which shatters a rock?
(Jeremiah 23:29 NASB)
Fifth, following this, I continued to hear of impending crises and disasters coming (e.g., April 13, 2009,
June 23, 2009), and then on June 24, 2010 , I was given another word.
"America is going into the greatest trial she has ever faced. It will seem as if all hope is lost and
she will not make it. But then, the light of My glory will shine upon her and she will turn to see Me
in the face of My chosen. The times surely will change. It is coming. No man can stop what is
coming upon not only America but all the nations. The earth will teeter but I will right her."
Sixth, I believe there is a clear connection between the National Christmas Tree in Washington DC
toppling on February 9, 2011 and the 5.9 earthquake that hit DC on August 23, 2011 that damaged
the top stones of both the National Cathedral and the Washington Monument . Let us not be
persuaded that this was just any normal earthquake. It was a rare one, especially in the distance it
traveled and the fact that it caused damage to two national monuments. I believe this was part of God's
judgment on the political system, the heart of the nation. We could say that it was a shot across the bow.
For more on the connection between the tree toppling and the quake, see issues #05-1132, February 19,
2011, National Christmas Tree Toppled , #05-1143, August 23, 2011, Quake News of the Day , and #05-
1145, August 25, 2011, The Number 186 in Light of the Quake .
Seventh, many years prior, on September 24, 2001 , I heard : "A rare earthquake is coming. You will
know the end has come by a major earthquake." Interestingly, in the days leading up to the August
23, 2011 DC quake, I was telling a good friend that I was expecting a rare quake to hit, most likely on the
east coast. Whether this could be classified a major quake depends on the spiritual meaning of major .
Does major imply something physical (i.e., damage) or, simply, significant? Time will tell.
Finally, the judgment of God can take many different forms. Sometimes the very evil that is manifested is
the judgment itself. For example, abortion is the judgment of God for not listening to God (Hosea 9:13-
17). In like fashion, the pointing of the finger is the judgment of God for ignoring the more weighty issues
of caring for those in need.
(8) "Then your light will break out like the dawn, and your recovery will speedily spring forth ; and
your righteousness will go before you; the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard . (9) "Then
you will call, and the LORD will answer ; you will cry, and He will say, 'Here I am.' If you remove the
yoke from your midst, the pointing of the finger and speaking wickedness , (10) and if you give
yourself to the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then your light will rise in darkness and your
gloom will become like midday. (Isaiah 58:8-10 NASB)
In scripture, God is the one who yokes His people. He placed iron yokes on the houses of Israel and
Judah for their evil hearts that had turned from Him. The above does not state so directly, so we cannot
be sure He placed this yoke on them, but God told them that they had a problem and it was the pointing
of the finger and speaking wickedness. Is this not a familiar trait of our political system, especially the
rhetoric coming from those running for president? What is the remedy? Remove the yoke and give
yourself to what matters to God!
Here is the good news: God's judgments will lead to full recovery, resulting in the righteousness and
glory of the Lord going forth. This is the end to which God is driving our political system, with one big
difference. It is destined to come under the government of God as America becomes a Kingdom nation
ruled by justice, righteousness, impartiality, lovingkindness, peace, and truth!
