Your message burns in my heart and bones, and I cannot keep silent.

Lightning Circles Leaders (Dream)—Heaven Rules
Over the 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 age and on the cusp of the glorious new age of our
Lord Jesus. Most all of these came through prophetic insights with the general theme of the coming of
great cataclysmic-seismic change, tumult, great storms, great deception, etc. As shared elsewhere, the
answer to this world system, which, using Daniel's imagery, is a beast 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
based on Christians infiltrating it—it is the person of the Lord Jesus, the Anointed One of God (the
Messiah). Jesus is the only answer and antidote to the current world system that has a beast-like nature.
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 each 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 Jesus and is
not contingent on a political system and who heads it up. King Jesus 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, which is part of the beast system of man—the kingdom
of the world, is under the judgment of God. Nothing of man's shakable kingdom will prevail as we near
the presence of our beloved Lord Jesus.
This expression, "Yet once more," denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of
created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. (Hebrews 12:27 NASB)
This leads to a dream that came to me on October 20, 2009, seven years before the 2016 presidential
election. In the 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 verse that comes to mind with the image of smugness is: Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
and shrewd in their own sight! (Isaiah 5:21). In place of shrewd , some translations use expressions like
clever and smart or intelligent . You think you are clever and smart! This is the picture that formed from
this dream. For more on the smartness of leaders of the kingdom of the world, see Leaders of Beast
Kingdoms are Smart
Given the year of this dream, I believe this speaks to the leader of the USA at that time, which was Barack
Obama. Interestingly, President Obama and his administration were often called intelligent and smart. To
the mainstream media, they were beyond reproach as they were praised (idolized) for their intellectual
prowess; just the opposite of how the media portrayed the previous administration.
The long granite steps were like those seen in many Federal buildings in the nation's capital. I believe the
tall leader was Barack Obama, whose hair was graying, and the woman was Hillary Clinton. Since Obama
did not start his term with graying hair, I believe the scene should be interpreted prospectively to Obama's
second term and Hillary Clinton's run for president, meaning we are looking at 2012-2016, with the latter
year probably the more prominent.
In retrospect (looking back from 2019), the arrogance of the leaders indicates they were up to no good,
as they say. They knew the right thing to do but didn't do it. Instead, there was something underhanded
going on that could not be challenged and the leaders were all in agreement with whatever they planned.
And, they weren't interested in doing something they knew worked, perhaps even something that was
right to do. Regardless, they chose their own path and smugly figured they would pull it off. Think back;
Obama ran on having a transparent administration, but it turned out to be anything but that.
I try hard to remain neutral and not delve into the politics of the day; however, to explain this dream, I
must offer a few comments. Obama ran on "fundamentally transforming" America based on an ideology
that is harmful to the very core of American life that, at the nation's inception, was based on Christian
biblically-based values. Personally, I don't believe any president, no matter what side of the aisle he or she
is from, has the right to do such a thing. It is up to the people to change their nation, not elected officials
that have mixed motives at best. Obama's transformational platform was not good for America, for, at its
core, was a move away from our traditional roots where morality matters to an amoral, all-inclusiveness
where everything goes as the individual defines what is real and right, and the Federal government
becomes the answer to people's every need and want. Add to this the growth of socialism and globalism
and a growing anti-Christian drive that attempts to push Jesus out of any public discourse, and we begin
to understand the transformation this president sought. The argument that they were all about American
values (whatever this means) was a deception and a lie.
Then, in 2015, along came Donald Trump who threatened to stop and unravel this transformative
deception, causing Obama and Clinton and others (leading up to the election) to do whatever was deemed
necessary to derail Trump, prior to the election but especially once he was elected. If the truth ever comes
out on what really transpired up to the election of Trump and then during the interim until he was sworn
in and the investigations that followed, I believe the validity of this dream will be proven. The question is
whether it will ever come to the light of day. Regardless, God sees all, and this is what matters most, for
He is not moved by what men say or do or don't say or do.

Out of the heavens, hath Yahweh looked, He hath seen all the sons of men: Out of his settled place
of abode, hath he fixed his gaze on all the inhabitants of the earth: Who fashioneth their heart all
together, Who understandeth all their doings. (Psalms 33:13-15 Rotherham)
No creature remains hidden before God. All are naked, laid bare before the eyes of the one to whom
we must present an account. (Hebrews 4:13 Kingdom NT)
The interesting thing about all this is—on one hand Obama was (is) an amoralist who managed to keep
his reputation relatively clean, thanks to a compliant media, as he attempted to fundamentally change
America into something contrary to all that it has been built upon—and, on the other hand, Trump has
displayed immoral and ethical character flaws that the media has been quick to play up in an attempt to
continually question his reputation and ability to lead, as he attempts to reverse Obama's course. And yet,
who is the one who is standing up for the traditions of America and even defending Christian values?
Trump! All I can say is that God knows what He is doing, and whatever He does is right. Enough of the
By the way, this dream goes along with a dream and a word that came to me on February 28, 2008 and
February 10, 2009, respectively, dealing with judgment of the American political system. See…
Cords of Falsehood (Dream)
"I Have Lifted Up A Hammer Over the US" (Word)
Now, regarding the specifics of the dream, it seems clear that God passed His judgment upon the political
leadership, at least through 2016, that was full of pride and arrogance. They knew the right thing to do,
for they had heard it, but they refused to act upon it; instead choosing a way of deception. The bolts of
lightning indicate judgment on the full circle of leaders, including the bearded woman. The proof is in the
fact that Hillary lost and Obama's legacy is being overturned. This is the judgment of God. Perhaps the
rocket was a sign that their plan was not allowed to fully get off the ground, or they were contemplating
a literal war that was stopped by the hand of God.
The clincher, however, is the word that came to me in the night after the dream. For eight 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 of 2016, 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 this judgment did not end with Obama's
two terms—we continue to be in the midst of judgment now, and one of its manifestations is our present
corrupt political system that is on display. By God's doing, Trump has a part to play in this. Fact is: Trump
is in the thick of it and, as proposed elsewhere, he is God's hammer. (See above link.)
Based on my experience with the Lord's people, 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? Presidents have been made into kings.

If this isn't enough, consider what Paul had to say on the matter. In Romans 1:18-32, he 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 Paul described 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 4:32). 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 drove him away from mankind. His body became drenched with the dew of heaven until
his hair had grown like eagle's feathers. He became a beast! 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 wishes .
We are living in the last days of the kingdom of the world (of men) that is ruled by leaders of lawlessness
with beast-like character. As Nebuchadnezzar gloried in the greatness of his Babylonian empire, which
was none other than a beast kingdom, so to have our national leaders gloried in their beast kingdom, even
denying that heaven rules and that God, as the creator of all, has rights over His creation, even setting the
rules and laws by which creation operates.
In His mercy, God gave these leaders time to change their minds and turn to Him, acknowledging that
heaven rules. They did not as they continued with arrogant, prideful hearts. God's judgment had already
been made. This is the reason I was told not to pray for them. The word to them is: 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). Much of what these leaders sought to do is now being unraveled and
these leaders (for the most part) are now in obscurity with muted voices. We wait to see how our Lord
will turn back the tide of the amoral current that they fostered. Based on this insight, along with others I
have received (cited earlier), the judgment of the political system of the US is not over as God pounds the
fortresses of man. This is all proof that heaven rules, in spite of man's denial.
As the Lord's people, let us set the evidence that HEAVEN RULES , especially in the midst of the beast-like
kingdom of the world. Besides, the kingdom of the Son of God's love is coming. Let us rejoice and eagerly
wait for the arrival of God's king—King Jesus!
