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

"World About to Experience Dramatic Change" (Word/Scripture)
Before sharing what came to me in the night of October 27, 2019, I need to share a concern that came to
light recently. Just the other day, a friend read a quote from a well-known modern-day theologian (the
name is not necessary) that went something like this: Scripture never tells us to listen to the "inner voice."
A search for this quote led me to some web sites that discount anything to do with an inner voice, including
visions and dreams, meaning God never speaks directly to us in any of these ways. The only thing that
matters to those holding this view is the word of God, which is the written words contained in what is
called scripture . One of their claims is that when someone says the Lord spoke to them (through whatever
means) they are trying to validate what they are saying with the goal of drawing attention to themselves.
Validation and self-attention are not mutually inclusive! The ancient prophets often said, Thus says the
Lord . Why? Validation of what they were speaking. Let us not overlook the fact that the Bible is filled with
people who heard the Lord's voice and were given visions and dreams and, by the way, even saw angels.
Of course, there is a whole school of thought out there that says once scripture was completed, all of this
went out the window, so to speak, and scripture is all that counts. Such thinking can become this—read
it, study it, parse it, and develop a systematic theology out of it, squeeze the life out of scripture and
declare it is the truth. But is it? Let us not forget that the word of God is living and active and sharper than
any two-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12), and anything that takes away from this is not the word; it is dead
and dull, with no power to change its recipients.
See: No Word from God…Void of Power
Much could be said along these lines to refute and/or defend certain positions, but this is not my interest
with this insight. However, as I see it, the written word and what I call prophetic insights are not mutually
exclusive; they go hand-in-hand. For this reason, I always look for scriptural support. Jesus said, My sheep
hear My voice . Should we restrict Him to speaking to us in only one manner? It is true that whatever we
report as from the Lord must line up with scripture, but even this has its dangers. Some of the ones who
say this (making scripture exclusive of any other means of spiritual communication) actually mean that it
must line up with a (their) particular interpretation of scripture. Regardless, I press on with prophetic
insight, along with commentary of scripture.
Now, on October 27, 2019, I was woken with a word. I heard: The world is about to experience dramatic
change . Frankly, this is nothing new to me since I have reported a great deal along these lines for a good
number of years. But there was more, for I was led to look at the time and given the impression it was a
verse from scripture. The time was 2:44 am . When I woke that day, I began a search of scripture, going
from book to book to see which one had at least 44 verses in its second chapter. There are only a few,
none of which seemed to have any meaning to the day, except the one found in Daniel.
(44) "In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which will never be
destroyed, and that kingdom will not be left for another people; it will crush and put an end to all
these kingdoms, but it will itself endure forever . (45) "Inasmuch as you saw that a stone was cut
out of the mountain without hands and that it crushed the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and

the gold , the great God has made known to the king what will take place in the future; so the dream
is true and its interpretation is trustworthy." (Daniel 2:44-45 NASB [bold italic added])
The future Daniel saw was the rise of the Roman empire that, along with the elite Jews of the day, crucified
the Lord of glory. When King Jesus was crucified and three days later rose from the grave with a spirit-
animated body, He inaugurated the kingdom that Daniel interpreted from Nebuchadnezzar's dream. We
could call it (and some do) the stone kingdom . With Jesus' first arrival, He crushed all the kingdoms of
men, at least in an inaugural way. It took centuries later before Rome finally fell, but its fate was sealed at
the cross, just as the fate of Jerusalem and the temple were sealed. Ultimately, all the kingdoms of men
that stand against the very character and nature of His kingdom will be crushed.
This might not be so clear to us today as we look out over the world's landscape of nations, but without
doubt no kingdom will stand against the stone kingdom. At the end of our present age, every kingdom
having the nature of the Babylonian, Media-Persia, Greek, or Roman kingdoms (all on earth have some
vestiges of these, by the way) will be crushed to dust as King Jesus , the ruler of the kings of the earth ,
openly manifests Himself, along with His conquering body. Using Daniel's language, the kingdoms of the
world all have a beast-like nature. Some say they are mystery Babylon (of Revelation), a view I once held
but no longer do. What I see are beast nations that, in varying forms, all possess traces of the four
kingdoms Daniel saw that were to arise in the future beyond his day. Another way of expressing it is that
all nations have an animal-like or carnal, fleshly nature.
Now, what does all this have to do with the word that came to me? Well, everything! The dramatic change
that is ultimately coming is the stone kingdom of King Jesus. I say ultimately because it is most likely that
the world will slide into further darkness that could in its own right be called a dramatic change before we
believers, the earth, and all of creation experience the glorious change for which we all are longing and
For we are aware that the entire creation is groaning and travailing together until now. Yet not
only so, but we ourselves also, who have the firstfruit of the spirit, we ourselves also, are groaning
in ourselves, awaiting the sonship, the deliverance of our body . For to expectation were we saved.
Now expectation, being observed, is not expectation, for what anyone is observing, why is he
expecting it also? Now, if we are expecting what we are not observing, we are awaiting it with
endurance . (Romans 8:22-25 CLV [bold italic added])
Be encouraged, it won't be long!
I know some might think I have gone off the edge, as they say, but there is something interesting about
2:44 when viewed as the single number 244. It is a factor of 61 x 4. For those who follow this web site,
you know that, for me, the number 61 (6 + 1 = 7) has significant meaning, for it speaks to the history of
the heavens and the earth (Genesis 2:4) and reveals that a seventh day is coming, which is the open
manifestation of the kingdom of the heavens (of God) on earth. The number 4 signifies the earth and
material creation . Thus, in the seventh day, heaven will openly come to earth. Truly, this will be a dramatic
