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.

For about the last nine years, I have posted many warnings about the day in which we live and what is coming (in
very general terms) as we are at the end of our present wicked age and on the cusp of the glorious new age of our
Lord Jesus. Most all of these came through dreams, visions, and words in the night and have circled around the
general theme of great cataclysmic, seismic change, tumult, great storms, great deception, etc. As shared many
times, the answer to this world system whose corruption has reached the heavens, much like the Tower of Babel,
is not a thing or an it or even an improved system which Christians have infiltrated. The answer is the Person of the
Lord Jesus, the Anointed One of God (the Christ). In Christ, all things are new, not simply cleaned up or restored.
It is unfortunate, but also a necessary sign of the times, that the Lord's people in America are quite distracted by
the current world system, even embroiled in the current presidential election season as they seek after a candidate
who will guarantee their so-called "religious freedom." Has it ever occurred to anyone that the Lord never promised
us religious freedom? He offered us His life and told us we would have tribulation in the world. Paul exhorts us that
suffering leads to glory (Romans 8.17). Our freedom is in Christ and is not contingent on a political system and who
heads it up. Christ is the only Head that matters. God gave Him as Head over all things to the church, which is His
Body (Ephesians 1.22-23).
Do not be deceived; the current political system, as well as all the world systems of man, are under the judgment
of God. Nothing of man's shakable systems will prevail as we near the Presence of our beloved Lord Jesus. This leads
to a dream that came to me seven years ago that I have not posted in any writings. This is what I recorded on
October 20, 2009 . In a dream I saw -
A group of people were developing something and it worked; it was a success. A meeting was held
with a group of leaders. There was one leader who stood out, for he was tall and might have had
some gray hair. He was leading the meeting. The discussion was about the thing that was developed;
but the leader never mentioned the thing the others had developed and that worked. He acted as if
it did not exist. Those who developed the successful thing were silent; no one spoke that they had
the answer to the matter under discussion. It was like everyone was numb or afraid. However, the
leaders acted like they had the solution and knew what they were doing. The meeting ended and
they all walked out of the building almost in procession. They had arrogant, smug smiles on their
faces. They walked down long granite stairs to an open area. Then, I saw bolts of lightning coming
down and surrounding these leaders in a circle. The leaders had long beards, way down to their
knees; strangely one of them was a woman. Then, I saw a huge rocket about to be launched.
At 1:01 am, I heard: "Do not pray for them. I am going to give them the desire of their heart. Judgment
is coming upon this nation the likes of which it has not seen."
The long granite steps were like those seen in many Federal buildings in the nation's capital. America has been
under the judgment of God for at least the last seven years, perhaps even longer. However, this dream makes it
clear that this judgment is upon the current political leadership that is full of pride and arrogance. They know the
right thing to do, for they have heard it, but they refuse to act upon it, rather choosing a way of deception. The
bolts of lightning seem to indicate judgment on the full circle of leaders, including the bearded woman. Then as
now, I believe the tall leader was Barack Obama, whose hair was starting to gray, and the woman was Hillary Clinton.
This conclusion is more strongly confirmed today. As for the rocket, I don't know if it was coming or going.
The clincher, however, is the word that came to me in the night after the dream. For the last seven years, God has
given them the desire of their hearts. This is why we have witnessed such dramatic change in the very moral fiber
of the United States, as well as the bizarre presidential election, along with its grossly biased media reporting. It is
this dramatic change that is the judgment of God. Undoubtedly, this will only intensify as the end of this age nears,
but please understand that we are in the midst of judgment now, and one of its manifestations is our present
corrupt political system.
Based on my experience, it is difficult for many to grasp the concept of God's judgment in what we see our leaders
doing. Generally, people think that these actions will bring judgment, but this is not necessarily so based on
scripture. If you don't believe this, then read what the Lord had to say to Ephraim (i.e., ancient Israel) as recorded
in Hosea 9.10-17. In particular, note who will slay the precious ones of their womb (Hosea 9.16). Some have likened
this to legalized abortions in our day that God has brought upon our land as judgment. But why did He do this to
Israel? He did it because, at Gilgal, the people refused the Lord as their King. Does this sound familiar to the United
States for the last fifty years, perhaps longer?
If this isn't enough, consider what Paul had to say on the matter. In Romans 1.18-32, Paul wrote three times that
God gave them over to something unrighteous and ungodly. God gave them over in the lusts of their heart to
impurity ; God gave them over to degrading passions ; God gave them over to a depraved mind . Let this sink in:
God did it! Once you have a handle on this one huge concept, read how or what Paul described as the manifestations
of impure hearts, degrading passions, and depraved minds. It is as if God lifts His hand and says: "Ok, you will see
the result of Me no longer in your life as My restraining influence of righteousness and godliness is withdrawn. Let's
see how you do without Me in the governance of your land." God doesn’t have to cause or force people to act in
such an ungodly manner; all He has to do is no longer restrain man's nature and man will act out the result, for this
is what fallen man does who refuses to acknowledge God. For even though they knew God, they did not honor
Him as God or give thanks (Romans 1.21). Consider another example in Paul's Thessalonians letter: They did not
receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason, God will send upon them a deluding influence so
that they will believe what is false. Earlier in this letter, Paul also referred to something that restrains the man of
lawlessness (see 2 Thessalonians 2.1-11). There are several interpretations of these verses, but this is not the point;
the principle is. What is important to note is that God acts (influences) based on the heart of man, and, in doing so,
He can either restrain or not restrain His influence for good or for bad.
Now, back to the dream, for here we discover more of this principle. The arrogant leaders with long beards down
to their knees is a reminder of Nebuchadnezzar when he refused to acknowledge that the Most High is ruler over
the realm of mankind and bestows it on whomever He wishes (Daniel 4). When the king reflected on his kingdom
and said, "Is this not Babylon the great, which I myself built as a royal residence by the might of my power and
for the glory of my majesty" (Daniel 4.30), the Lord removed his sovereignty and he was driven away from mankind.
His body became drenched with the dew of heaven until his hair had grown like eagle's feathers. After seven periods
of time, the king came to his senses and praised, exalted, and honored the King of the Heavens. In essence, he
declared: Heaven rules , and the Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind and bestows it on whomever He
We are living in the last days of Mystery Babylon that is ruled by Babylonian leaders . In His mercy, God has given
these leaders seven years to change their minds and turn to Him, acknowledging that heaven rules. The number
seven is one of God's perfection numbers. What comes next will go one of two ways; our leaders will do as
Nebuchadnezzar did, or they will continue with arrogant, prideful hearts, and God will bring forth His wrath. For
the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the
truth in unrighteousness (Romans 1.18). Since I was told not to pray for them, I suspect the latter will be the case.
Besides, if there is one thing that is being greatly suppressed at the national, as well as the world level, it is truth. It
is possible, even likely, the huge rocket will play into the wrath of God. Whether it is literal or not, time will tell.

As the Lord's people, let us set the evidence that HEAVEN RULES , even in the midst of Mystery Babylon.
