Summary of prophecies: DOW to 12000, warming economy, some political leaders toppled and judged

Accountability in the prophetic world is very important to me. I believe prophetic voices should consider a published, public track record of prophecies to provide evidence whether or not a prophecy has come to pass. Of course, many times it will be years before a prophecy comes to pass. Also, the Lord can change His mind in response to prayers and decisions of men, as happened with King Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah (2 Kings 20) or Nineveh and the prophet Jonah. Finally, a prophecy may be misinterpreted so one believes it has not come to pass but in fact it has, or it has happened behind the scenes (like a cure for a disease) but is not yet public record. For my own accountability, and because this blog is getting longer than I ever expected, I have summarized some key prophecies regarding the stock market, American economy and American politics.

Speaking when the climate of opinions is in polar opposite to the prophetic word is a signature of the Lord. Please see the Lord spoke the following well before anyone in the secular or prophetic arenas shared these specific opinions, at least I never heard a specific secular or prophetic opinion at the time of the prophecy which was in agreement. I do discard vague generalities that, like a fortune cookie (not that believers should read fortune cookies), can be interpreted many ways or are so broad-brushed that its coming to pass is a statistical high probability. Please know this is the measure I hold to myself in the field that I plow. I simply want to be a better farmer in my field.

Summary of when the Lord spoke:
1) Back on September 29, 2009 that the DOW would be going to 12,000.
2) On February 12, 2010, May 16, 2010, June 27, 2010 and September 16, 2010 as well as other dates that He will uphold the stock market and it will not utterly crash (but will correct).
3) Back on February 19, 2009, and again on September 2, 2010, that the economy would warm up.
4) Back on April 29, 2010 that the tea party would actually topple the political establishment. I have learned Kim Clement also prophesied about the tea party on April 16, 2010.
5) Back on April 29, 2010 and again on September 16, 2010 that Americas leaders will be toppled and judged.

The DOW, thus far, has reached a high of over 11,200 yesterday. If you revisit the prophetic words, you will also see the DOW rose more slowly than I initially heard and believed on September 29, 2009 regarding the timing of the DOW going to 12,000 by April 2010. The Lord clarified the DOW would rise more slowly in the March 12, 2010 and May 19, 2010 words. I am standing on His word He will uphold the stock market, it will correct but not crash, and the DOW is headed to 12,000.

The economy is indeed warming according to not just the stock market but also other economic indicators.

And the November elections will be telling if many political leaders in the political establishment are toppled.

Prophecy DOW will go from 7200 to 8600, by May the DOW will be above 8200

DOW to approximately 12,000 by April 2010

DOW on track to 12,000 in spring 2010 as the Lord Said

June vision of ashen black DOW; question whether DOW will go to 12,000 in April

DOW going to 12,000; Lazy bull market

Short term "minor" pullback to 10,800?

The USA shall defy the sovereign debt crises and be immune from contagion

New word about the DOW

Summary of prophecies

The Big Picture of the U.S.A. Stock Market

Where the DOW is going and word from the Lord regarding America

Clear and emphatic word from the Lord

American political and business leaders judged… not America… celebrate!

Update as of November 2, 2010 10:30 pm: As Rand Paul, the tea party-backed Republican candidate in Kentucky, said this evening, "Tonight there's a tea party tidal wave." http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20101103/ap_on_el_se/us_senate

And here is another interesting quote that 40% of voters are supporters of the conservative tea party movement, "About four in 10 voters said they were worse off financially than two years ago, according to preliminary exit poll results and pre-election surveys. More than one in three said their votes were an expression of opposition to Obama. More than half expressed negative views about both political parties. Roughly 40 percent of voters considered themselves supporters of the conservative tea party movement. Less than half said they wanted the government to do more to solve problems."

The Lord said on April 29, 2010 that the tea party would actually topple the political establishment and it did happen, praise Him so, so much for the hope He is restoring tonight to America. What an incredible God, what a night of bright hope.

Here are the original words:

Update as of January 26, 2011: The DOW to 12,000 prophesy was fulfilled January 24, 2011. The DOW reached within 20 points of 12,000 on January 24 and broke through 12,000 on January 26. Please know the prophecy was fulfilled on January 24, 2011 because numbers are always approximate, not exact.

“Come closer to Me”

“Signs and wonders will increase. But not all signs and wonders are from Me. The angel of light, Diablo, who divides your mind will have you look here and look there at that wonder, at that phenomenon.

“But my sheep will simply know My voice. If you do not know and trust My voice you will be tossed in the waves of look here and look there and consider this and consider that.

“I will tell you simply: what I speak to you in your quiet moments plainly and clearly is what you must trust. And my logos, my written Word will always reign and be your rudder when you sail rough seas. My rhema to you will be your secret. It is eternal. It is my truth for you. And my rhema word, if you cleave to it, will be your sail in My wind and it will carry your boat.

“But I will not give you signs. I will not always confirm with happenings. My rhema word is your clear, pure, uncontaminated water, your rhema sail in My wind. You must know My voice and you must trust what I speak to you in your quiet, private moments with Me.

“I have warned it will get more and more confusing and tempting to go here and there. More and more turmoil all about in My church. In returning and rest You will be saved and hear My voice. In quietness and confidence will be your strength and assurance that in due season your boat will reach its destination. Seek Me, in a quiet place in the Holy of Holies, where we will talk face to face.”

And about ten minutes later, while sitting and quietly worshipping on the same mountaintop, I had an awe-inspiring and much closer encounter, if you will, with our risen Lord, our Savior, our King. I am not saying He personally appeared to me. Rather, my spirit encountered much more intimately and with much deeper appreciation and worship His Person. I did perceive a luminous and glorious white light throughout the beautiful sky and a vision of His Person as well. Again, this was likely a vision, but it was very profound and magnificent to me:

“I am the Alpha and Omega, from the beginning of time before I created you to the end of time which has no end. I am the only Truth this world will come to know, the only Way to God, the Father whose light in fullness shines through Me, and the only Life which will satisfy your soul. Come to a quiet place and I will give you real drink, clean and pure. I will talk to you face to face if you will come to Me, Jesus Christ, the One who was and is and is to come. Come closer. Comer closer. And you will see that all you need to leave what is not Me... is Me. Come closer to Me.”

Update as of October 21, 2010 11:00am: Yesterday morning I went to the same mountain and the Lord impressed on me that the Holy Spirit is also very importantly called the “Spirit of Truth”. He wanted me to have a more intimate encounter with His Spirit of Truth, which I gratefully did have. If you seek the Lord’s truth, you will find truth. And the truth that you know will set you free. The Lord does say if you hold to His teachings, which we can know from the written Word which is the Bible, then you will be His disciple and know the truth. It perhaps sounds kindergarten basic and overly simple for a mature Christian, but it’s the contrary. Sticking to the basics by pressing more tightly towards Jesus Christ, His Spirit of Truth, and the written Word is immensely profound. The spiritual might to move mountains with these basics is undeniable. I will likely be calling the Holy Spirit “Spirit of Truth” sometimes because I’m sure we all desire to be guided further in His truth and not chase after that which may appear like it is coming from God but is not.

Jesus warns that “false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect, if that were possible.” Signs and wonders and supernatural phenomenon not of God will increase in these perilous end times. I want to cleave to Jesus Christ. I want to treasure, listen to, and obey His Spirit of Truth on an hourly basis so I am not deceived. I want to spend time with Him in an intimate place where it is quiet and where I will hear from Him. My dear friends, there is nothing worth chasing after except Jesus Christ. He is the Alpha and Omega, the first and last. All life was created by Him and for Him. He is our King and Savior. He is the only Way, the Truth and the Life. All things can find their answer and be set on a straight course in Him. And in pressing in to just Jesus, to know His Spirit of Truth, there are ample living waters and provision to refresh you and supply all your needs as you walk out your life in Him.

[Jesus said:] For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect--if that were possible. So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.
Mark 13:22-23 (NIV)

[Jesus said:] For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect--if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time.
Matt 24:24-25 (NIV)

Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
John 8:31-32 (NIV)

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever-- the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.
John 14:16-17 (NIV)

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
John 16:12-13 (NIV)

33 Miners out of the shaft, “the last shall be first”

“As I have pulled miners out of a mine, so I will humble the world. ‘They are just miners’ you say, ‘sooty and greasy,’ you say, ‘below me,’ you say, yes I know you have said. I don’t even judge you but I know your thoughts.

“Look at the compassion of the Chileans. Look at the faith. Real faith in Me, I don’t care what church-y they go to. They said I am the 34th miner with them, God with them in the dungeon. They knew that they knew that they knew I was there. They knew that they knew that I love men, yes women are men so don’t trip and fall on words.

“And look at the President who muscled the troops, international expertise, and rolled out the red carpet, an incredible reception, for these men. Everything was thought of and attended to. He went over the top. Over the top!! What a commander in chief. Let’s get real! Can we talk? The last shall be first. Come on, now! In churchy lingo, ‘Come on, Now!’, you Pentecostal folk! The last shall be first. I love men. Come on now you churchy folk, men are men and women. The lowly are My beloved and just read My red words again and get real. Yes, Catherine’s [Sierra’s] getting a message here so she is humbled. Her eyeballs are popping out. [I, “Sierra”, can add, happily so.]

“And guess what? Come on, I can talk this way. I love YOU. Don’t get into condemnation now. Be down to earth because that is the true mean of humility, low to the ground. Get real! And you will find friends upon friends and love upon love and life overflowing and everlasting. Now I’m even [speaking] churchy. What goodness coming out of the shaft of a mine. Guess what, I love you. I really really do. And I really really love those 33 men. Isn’t it interesting that’s the age folks think I died? Different voice from Me. But you recognize Me all the same because I don’t change. Still healing people who are grabbing my robe or falling through roofs. Still healing people who sputter and spit before Me. My first miracle was wine and I’m not ashamed. Yes I hang out. Still eating heads of grains in the field. Yes I relax and live. Get real. Get low. And find my Zoe life. Because I’m coming soon and you all better be lovin’ one another because I love you. And don’t think I’m spanking and chastising about this, I’m not. Oh, your head spins. This is a simple little message. The last shall be first, the lowly shall be first, what you overlook shall be first. Because, ‘Surprise, Surprise!’ I love men. I love men.”

So, my friends, this is the most unusual and “crazy”, if you will, word I’ve received. It hit me with a “bam” and no-nonsense unction to post. He was real and not super-spiritual. I feel like yours-truly got roto-rooter’ed (my tongue in cheek for His Spirit further sanctifying me). I jest slightly because I’m honestly nervous this is so unusual a tone. It’s uncomfortable for me. But He is teaching me, please know He is really teaching me, as well.

Update as of October 14, 2010 11pm: This word has made an impact on me in that I continue to ponder all the Lord seemed to be saying. It was unusual in that He spoke in an extremely down-to-earth voice. And what a focus on His love for people: those 33 miners were resurrected from their dark grave below (many believe Jesus died and was resurrected at age 33), and the Chilean president and government went to incredible, compassionate and expert efforts to rescue not only down-to-earth but in-the-earth miners. The word and event are a reminder He greatly loves the often overlooked, those not in the limelight, such as miners going about their day to day work, “the last shall be first, the lowly shall be first, what you overlook shall be first.” The Lord was also gently and lovingly chiding charismatic “Pentecostal folk” who sometimes get too super-spiritual, “Come on now you churchy folk…. The lowly are My beloved… just read My red words again and get real.” Many of those miners had faith in Emmanuel, God with them there in that prison, and it pleased God. And the Chilean President as well as many people who made great efforts to rescue those men pleased God with their compassion. The Lord facilitated the miracle through everyone. The more I re-read this word, the more I see several threads of the simple truths of His teachings, the Bible’s “red words”, woven together in this event.

Update as of October 18, 2010 11pm: A friend, Eagle, let us know about this video. It validates the Lord's word about faith that pleases Him. “What did the miners in Chile say on their shirts?” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONQBqOCApC4

Update as of October 19, 2010 9am: And I learned through the IWI website that Campus Crusade for Christ provided the tee-shirts.

Chile Ministry Helps Trapped Miners
The story of the 33 rescued miners has gripped the attention of the world, and Campus Crusade for Christ Chile has played an integral role.
15 October 2010

By now, most of you have probably seen the t-shirts the miners were wearing as they arose out of the mine that said "¡Gracias Señor!" (Thank You Lord!) and had the JESUS film logo on the sleeve. They were created by our Chile ministry and given to the miners to wear.

The national media has noticed the logo as well. CNN posted an article on their Belief Blog talking about the shirts.

We also wanted to confirm that the miner mentioned by Christian in his letter is miner #24, Jose Samuel Henriquez. Some services list him as Jose Henriquez Gonzalez. By all accounts, he was the spiritual leader of the group.

Would you join us in continuing to praise God for their rescue and the part our fellow staff members played in caring for and serving their needs while trapped.

News From the Miners
By Christian Maureira, Chile National Director

Hello team and friends! I want to share with you about the last 2 very intense weeks as we have worked on the project to take the Word of God and the JESUS audio version to the mine, but it has really be worth the effort as it is food for the soul. This long history of the miners that is now passing 2 months has been without doubt the longest survival experience for people trapped underground.

This all started on the August 5, when the San Jose mine collapsed because of the exploration in the mine. The news was not good as it was only 6 months after we had experience the very large earthquake and tsunami. With a population less than other countries in the world, problems like this seem much closer to you and much more like it is part of your own family.

After 2 weeks without news from the miners we could only think the worst. The government had made every effort, but it was reasonable to think that the miners were lost, above all considering the distance where they were located, some 700 meters (2,000 feet) deep with a difficult future to be rescued. But God had other plans and 2 days later (the 17th day), contact with them was made. Obviously we were all very happy and we celebrated the miracle that all were alive.

As Campus Crusade, God guided us to think about how we could help these men and this was how we took the initiative to contact some churches in the north, leaders and authorities about sending the JESUS audio into the mine. It wasn't easy in the beginning because of some apathy in the Christian leadership and a lack of a sense of urgency, together with the restrictive control of the rescue team but, God in His sovereignty provided that we were able to gain contact with the daughter and the brother of 1 of the 3 Christians that were trapped there.

During several weeks, I was in contact with them and I explored the possibility of sending them audio material. Finally, I traveled to the mine with 33 MP3's containing the JESUS audio version and an ample portion of the Bible. I was there for 2 days and we sent the MP3's through each family members that were there.

Jose Samuel, my contact in the mine (father of Hettiz and brother of Gaston) is an extraordinary man who has really surprised me. The psychologists that are giving help from the surface have recognized that he has been a tremendous emotional and spiritual support for the rest of his co-workers.

He sent me a letter that grabbed my attention for his incredible clarity of thought. For example, some parts of the letter are:

- "I want to express my appreciation for this great blessing for me and my co-workers, it will be very good our edification" (He is talking about the MP3's)

- "I am well because Christ lives in me"

- "We have prayer services at 12 a.m. and 6 p.m."

- "I ask all of you for pray not only for us here, but for all the lost people in the world"

- At the end of the letter he signed off with Psalm 95:4, "In his hand are the depths of the earth, and mountain peaks belong to him."

This is a very motivating story, let's continue to pray for the salvation of these souls. Thanks for being part of this.

Update as of October 19, 2010 4pm: And one more update from Eagle who writes, “God had His own all over this operation.” I’m sure the testimonies about how God used and honored everyday people walking out their everyday lives of faith in His Son will go on and on regarding this event.
Cypress, Texas, Oct 14, 2010 / 05:56 am

On Wednesday, the world watched in anticipation as 33 Chilean miners finally began to emerge through a narrow shaft, drilled half a mile below the earth. The extraordinary man who helped save them, Drillers Supply International co-owner Greg Hall, is also training to become a deacon in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston next February.

EWTN News spoke to his wife Angelica Hall (with whom he runs Drillers Supply) on Wednesday, about her husband's service to the Church, and the role their Catholic faith had played in helping them plan the rescue.

While the trapped miners were surviving on food rations lowered into a shaft too small to pull them to safety, Greg Hall was working --and praying-- to determine how a larger opening could be drilled. “We're prayerful people,” Angelica Hall remarked. “Prayer is a part of our daily life … and part of our community at Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church.”

Mrs. Hall explained that her husband's drilling supply company, which opened its Chilean branch in 1993, normally provided the supplies for gold, copper and silver mines. But in almost 25 years of business, she said, “this is the first time that we were involved in a mine rescue.”

“There was a crossover from Greg's expertise and drilling in Chile, (and) what our parts and our drill pipe could do,” she explained. Hall's engineering expertise “was able to cross over in making a shaft to get to the miners.”

The unprecedented rescue took months of planning, since even the smallest error or miscalculation could have caused rocks to slide or cave in-- trapping the miners forever. Mrs. Hall said her husband was grateful to play his part, having volunteered his expertise after initially hearing that a rescue was unlikely.

“He's kind of a take-action guy,” she told EWTN News. “We try to help if we have the skills and the talents to help.” Both faith and service to others, she said, “have been a part of our entire marriage.”

The same risk-taking spirit will lead Mr. Hall to become Deacon Hall, on February 12 next year. His wife recalled how her husband was first “an usher-greeter, then he was a lector,” before being asked “if he'd ever considered the diaconate.” She said that although her husband hadn't thought about it, “we just went forward in faith a step at a time.”

“Our formation has been six years and we're in the last semester. Hopefully, Greg will be ordained February 12th.”

With everything going on, she said, her family's life had been “quite an amazing ride.”

Noting the Biblical significance of 33 miners being pulled alive from their potential tomb after a 33 day drilling operation, Mrs. Hall told EWTN News that “the significance of that number” --the same number of years Jesus lived before his death and resurrection-- “has not been lost on us.”

She expressed amazement and gratitude that the opportunity to save dozens of lives had emerged in the ordinary course of “our everyday walk,” a fact that she said is proof that “God uses ordinary people in their ordinary lives.”

Clash of Wills

On my prayer walk I had a strong picture of a possibility, not that it will happen, but it is a possibility. I will describe this as if it will happen, but please know it may not as it is only a possibility. President Obama will shrewdly choose Hillary Clinton as his running mate in 2012 because many democrats would rather have Hillary as President than President Obama. Hillary Clinton is also a strong political leader and although she enjoys being Secretary of State, she would much prefer to be President. To keep Hillary content and not run against him is another motivation for President Obama to select Hillary as his running mate. This will be an exceedingly powerful democratic ticket for the elections.

Then the Lord said this (it is not conditional):

“As the will of powerful men and women in government intensifies, so My will intensifies. Your will is no match for My will. No match at all. Your will is Goliath. My will is David. Kim Clement first spoke of My David after King Saul and gave hope to this nation. I simply look for my Davids who will husband My will. And they will huff and puff and blow the house down.”

Please know the Obama-Hillary picture above was only to lead into the word, that the Lord’s will through those who yield to and obey Him can overturn man’s will if counter to the Lord’s.

Update as of October 6, 2010 11:00am: A friend sent me this link after he read this blog post, “A Clinton-Biden swap 'on the table'? Absolutely not, says Axelrod.”

Please know I had not ever heard or read this Obama-Clinton idea before, it simply popped in my mind very strongly yesterday afternoon on a prayer walk. Please also see the Washington Post article was written at 8:46 PM PST and I blogged at 6:53 PM PST. I wrote him back, “Thank you I definitely didn’t feel it was prophecy, just that it was a distinct possibility. I’ve never read anything to this effect. BTW, the white house HAS to deny such a speculation now, way to premature and would call into question his current VP. The key point is not whether this happens or not, it’s the clash of wills word. It was fascinating to me how the Lord put it.”
So you will have to please trust me I really had no clue that an Obama-Clinton ticket has been batted around. But the fact the Lord wanted to discuss it sends His greater message that no matter how strong the will powers of politicians are, the will power of Jesus Christ is far stronger when carried out through those that love Him, His Davids.
