Swinging at the Financial Piñata (KATX)

Dear Friends,

You will see in the last year or so I have ventured further into the prophetic regarding specific stocks, not just the stock market (DOW) and economy. The Lord has given longer term, very good accuracy regarding the stock market and economy. I tweeted three days ago, “DJIA @ 14,000 is so deep in my spirit it's like a delicious meal I've already eaten. Hard thing about the future is you want it yesterday!” Please remember 14,000 will happen in more than a year.

I have posted my impressions, visions, and what I have heard regarding various stocks in the past year. In 2009 I more than doubled my money with a stock the Lord led me to (HTGC). But in 2010 I must acknowledge some “OPO” (other people’s opinions) clouded my hearing regarding specific stocks. I hadn’t read a Christian prophetic investing site during all of 2009 through spring of 2010. But in 2010 I did start reading one and believe I got swayed by the discussions about PRRY and KATX. Both of these pink sheet stocks have nose-dived in price. In my tweets you will notice I don’t own PRRY and haven’t owned in a while. I apologize I wasn’t more clear I had exited many months ago. But please know I still own KATX. Although I have received additional personal encouragement regarding KATX, I am hesitant to share, but would rather you receive your own direction from the Lord. If you want to see some of my past revelations:

One of my prayers, so you know, is that KATX find concentrated, economically viable REEs in one of the two drill cores they have already drilled. Please know this is a prayer not a prophesy. Another prayer is that of a swinging baseball bat, that KATX be a “hit” with a good return even if you purchased up around 20 cents when I first tweeted on May 24, 2010. I will not rest knowing that people are underwater now on KATX. This fact gives me great consternation. So although I believe I have received much prophetic encouragement from the Lord, I have now switched to higher gear in intercessory prayer for KATX.

When something is in my spirit that I believe should come to pass, I’m like a pit bull with a bone in its mouth, I won’t let go. I feel this way about KATX. Not just for us all to recover our investment that we sowed. But to profit. Shall not the prophets see and reap when it is God’s sovereign timing for us to do so? God takes care of His prophets, not man. I never have materially gained, have never taken money, for sharing or for praying. Not that receiving “offerings” or “gifts” is wrong. But I am of the mindset we are all brothers and sisters and it pleases Jesus when we share our spiritual gifts with each other freely and without hesitation. I have an aching desire that as many as possible become blessed collectively, that one financial piñata be broken open for us all to enjoy and participate in. That piñata I’m swinging at with my spiritual bat is KATX.

Thank you, also, for your prayers that I might hear clearly from the Lord. I am aware prophesying about the market and individual stocks is not cute. It is weighty because your (and my) hard-earned money that the Lord has entrusted to us is on the line. Please know you should have several months of living expenses set aside as pure cash. But I also believe some of your money should prophetically work for you, like a tree growing from a seed, to give you a profit.

Our team – His team – needs a collective win. Let’s stay up at bat and keep swinging until we hit that ball out of the park.

Your friend,

Dow to 14,000, a Rich Man

“One more word, child. You have noticed the economy warmed as I said. The Dow is rising to 12,000 as I said. So hear this, the bears and those crying wolf want the sky to fall, a disastrous event, a retribution with fire from heaven. But hear this, I breathe life, I breathe life, I breathe life that my children who have suffered the fire might shine like bright gold. Oh, and yes! The Dow will chug, chug, chug along like that little engine that could. I think it can, I know it can! Watch 14,000. Not soon, longer than a year. But that little blue engine with a noble heart chugged, chugged, chugged on. So no catastrophic crashes, no flash floods in the market. How boring! Grace falls like dew from the sky. But be aware and on guard. The word for you, Sierra, is treasure the maturity learned in affliction. Lessons are a greater treasure than portfolios. A man’s worth is not measured in dollars. Where your heart is, there your treasure is. Job was a rich man indeed, a very rich man. His heart saw me.”

Update as of January 3, 2011 9:30 am:
A friend contacted me and wanted to know if there were any other impressions or thoughts regarding the word I received for 2011 since some other big name prophets are predicting disaster for the second half of 2011. Here is what I wrote back:

“There is no inside scoop on the word. I have been carrying the future 14,000 in my spirit for over a year, but last night was the time to release it since the Lord gave me that second word about 2011 right before I was shutting down my computer. I purposely did not read one single prophetic word, either on IWI, Elijah List or anywhere else, about 2011 before I heard from the Lord myself. Then I was curious and read some of the words posted on IWI. I saw the catastrophe words for the second half of 2011. I thought, oh boy, here we go again, as I’m used to being the lone contrarian to other “prophetic voices”. But if those prophecies don’t come to pass, were they actually prophecies? Were those voices actually prophetic voices? I wonder why people keep listening to prophetic voices that are either vague or wrong?

“I speak to the heavenlies – not to people although a handful have stumbled on my blog - and that has been my job since early 2009. It is very important the word be spoken and the heavenlies hear.”

Please know I am standing-my-ground in upholding with my words that which the Lord has shown me. I continue to stand in the gap for America and am immensely appreciative of God’s mercy and grace. I find it sad that in 2009 and 2010 I was not aware of single prophetic voice that agreed with the Lord’s bullishness for our stock market and economy. Maybe there was one, I don’t read many prophecies, but to my knowledge there was not a single, specific bullish voice about America’s economy and the stock market when the Lord first spoke to me. Please know there will be corrections and bumps in the road, that is normal and you don’t need a prophet to say that will happen because it will. Life is never smooth. But He did say, “no catastrophic crashes, no flash floods in the market.” I slept very well last night and am really looking forward to 2011. But please know His message for 2011 is about the treasure of His kingdom within, not about the market. No man can take that treasure from you if you protect it. This is the verse I last read before I went to sleep, “a good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things.” Matthew 12:35 (NKJV). May good things spring forth in 2011 out of the good treasures in the hearts of many Americans. Such is the kingdom of God.

Update as of January 4, 2011 9:30 pm:
 I feel I need to add one more update as I’ve read even more doom-and-gloom prophesies that sadden me immensely, some even make me feel sick to my stomach. Please consider the history of America’s roughly 200 years. There was a Great Depression worse than this Great Recession in terms of suffering for the poor. Also please consider that the American Civil War began with one goal and ended with a different, nobler goal. Several states seceded from the union because Abraham Lincoln was opposed to the expansion of slavery beyond the states in which it already existed. The civil war began on April 12, 1861 with the attack on Fort Sumter. Lincoln’s war goal was to simply restore status quo, to reunify America and to the halt the expansion of slavery into the western territories. It was almost a year and a half later on September 22, 1862 that he sought the abolition of slavery in all America with the Emancipation Proclamation. The point is, there was a horrific and extremely bloody war for almost a year and a half where the goal was restoring status quo. But much later the transformative goal of ending slavery emerged. Would prophets have discerned the good, transformative outcome – despite the immense violence and bloodshed – in 1861 and early 1862?

I wonder if we as Christians aren’t reacting too emotionally to existing events and failing to perceive the sublime working of the Lord towards good, His grace-filled nuances. I perceive some of the threads in the tapestry. And personally, I have never felt so free in Him, liberated from that in which I had subtly trusted and yet done so unknowingly. Sometimes you need an economic war time, a period of strife and turbulence, to emancipate you from subtle unseen idolatries.

Along this line of thinking, the good in the midst of the bad, I met an elderly godly woman living in her gasoline station because her water pipes broke in her house and she can’t afford to first them. She is widowed. She plays the organ for her community Bible church. Her God-fearing husband and only son both died within a week of each other just before the Great Recession began. She and I talked well over an hour, she had so much peace and radiant joy. She mentioned she has a warm place to live in her little loft at the station, has a small dog which is her companion, and meets people all day to keep her occupied. She said more than once she’s happy and blessed. I was in awe, honestly, of her contentment despite hard circumstances. I need to mention, where this gas station is located is the 6th snowiest location in the US, receiving on average 45 feet of snow a year. The gas station is very basic and humble. She must have been in her 70’s. I gave her my number in case she ever needed anything but I knew she would never call. She told me stories of how whenever she needed something, the Lord always sent the right person her way. She said before her husband died he told her he thought America needed another real depression, people had gotten way too materialistic and had lost touch with moral values. A real depression would bring people back to family values, to a work ethic. Now that man seems to me to be prophetic. He didn’t live to see the Great Recession, but he knew we needed one for our own good. And maybe, like the Civil War, it won’t take a long economic wartime before even more good manifests.

Update as of June 20, 2011 11am:
 Over the last couple of months I have seen in a faint vision, but repeated, the DOW hitting the approximate area of 12,000 hard three, possibly four, times, as if trying to break through to the downside. It will not succeed. After three or four attempts by bearish, fear-intoxicated forces in the economy and market, the DOW will resume its upward, slow climb towards 14,000. Note on February 28, 2011 I tweeted, “I told a friend I believe God that the market will not crash. I believe 12K is rough support although in the future it might dip to 11,800” and “The Little Engine That Could market is chugging along slowying uphill” and “Interesting I wrote ‘slowying uphill’, then saw the spirit-slip [meaning slip in words in the spirit, much like a Freudian slip] later. Perhaps the climb is slowing but still going, overall, slowly uphill.” On March 11, 2011 I tweeted, “So still waiting on prophecies: no mkt crash, mkt going to 14K, no sovereign debt contagion, more changing of US leadership, KATX doing well.” And on March 14, 2011 I tweeted, “Sorry no more to share re market. See Feb 28 tweet ‘12K is rough support’ & ‘the climb is slowing but still going, overall, slowly uphill.’” On March 18, 2011 I tweeted, “Feb28 tweet; I believe 12K is rough support although in the future it might dip to 11,800. Numbers/fluctuations are approx. This all happened.” And on April 28, 2011 I tweeted, “A repost of ‘Dow to 14,000’, a little blue engine that chugged on, no catastrophic crashes in the market: http://tinyurl.com/3k78lye”. So far the market has behaved exactly as the Lord has prophesied through me according to my faith that He indeed communicated to me. There have been no market crashes, 12,000 has been the support, and the market has resumed its upward climb after every correction like the little blue train engine that could (you need to have read the children’s book, “The Little Engine That Could” by Watty Piper to understand the Lord’s metaphor about this market).

I still emphatically believe I have heard the Lord over these many months and 12K will be the rough support for the market and the market will not crash. I will celebrate the liberty of America, whom God helped birth, this Fourth of July!

Update as of June 30, 2011 12:00 pm:
I had packed up my computer and gone out into my garden to thank the Lord for this last blog post update and to pray. I was filled with the Spirit and started thanking Him for the liberty in America. And then I asked Him to bless every single man, woman and child in America who places their trust wholly in Him. As I write this I feel His Spirit so heavy on and in me, the anointing is so strong. “There will be a breakthrough,” the Lord says, “there will be a breakthrough for every single citizen of America who is a citizen of heaven. My economy is not the world’s with its systems and manipulations. My economy breaks through the walls of worry. My economy is the engine of all engines. Cast all your cares on Me because I care for you and will never let you drown. You will swim, yes, swim with great bold strokes of joy in the sunlight. You won’t feel the chill of the waters. You won’t care there are sharks in the water. You will swim and swim in the deep waters of my Spirit because I alone will uphold. Go to Ezekiel and understand this. This is a time of a great outpouring of my Spirit. I will honor Kim Clement. You must give honor where it is due. There are those who swim and swim and swim against the tide. They have been betrayed. Friends have left them. Family counts them losers. But you, you, you, all of you, shall be catapulted into a new place of glory because I am doing a great work! Rejoice because your time of glory and joy, yes, joy you have lost, is upon you! Swim!! Swim!! Swim!! Swim!! My waters are rising!!”

I looked up the passage in Ezekiel the Lord referenced. I have never studied these passages before. The first thing that caught my eye is the stark difference between the healing and restorative powers of the waters of the Lord and the “swamps and marshes [which] will not be healed; they will be given over to salt [which, in this context, kills life].” Ezekiel 47:11 As challenging as things are in the natural, in the spiritual a great shift He has spoken of and which I have written over the past months and years is underway. As hard as it has been for many of us, we are chosen to live in such a time in this. We are set apart, sanctified for this time. I am seeing in the spirit, I see it so clearly I can even taste it and smell it and experience it, the vast flood of His spiritual waters that He is about to bestow on us and on those who don’t yet believe and trust in Him. It is for many, many, many more than just those who now love Him. It is a great harvest. These rising waters are so marvelous, so awesome. I am not saying this is the time Ezekiel spoke of. But there are rising waters very similar to what Ezekiel saw nonetheless. We all had to be humbled and fractured and our clay remolded into new shapes, new wineskins prepared, to receive Him in such a glorious way and to pour out our blessings onto others. I am so ready to swim in His rising waters, aren’t you? Oh my goodness, praise GOD!!!!!!

1 Then he brought me back to the door of the temple; and there was water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple toward the east, for the front of the temple faced east; the water was flowing from under the right side of the temple, south of the altar. 2 He brought me out by way of the north gate, and led me around on the outside to the outer gateway that faces east; and there was water, running out on the right side.
3 And when the man went out to the east with the line in his hand, he measured one thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the water came up to my ankles. 4 Again he measured one thousand and brought me through the waters; the water came up to my knees. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through; the water came up to my waist. 5 Again he measured one thousand, and it was a river that I could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim, a river that could not be crossed.
6 He said to me, "Son of man, have you seen this?" Then he brought me and returned me to the bank of the river. 7 When I returned, there, along the bank of the river, were very many trees on one side and the other. 8 Then he said to me: "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. 9 And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes. 10 It shall be that fishermen will stand by it from En Gedi to En Eglaim; they will be places for spreading their nets. Their fish will be of the same kinds as the fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many. 11 But its swamps and marshes will not be healed; they will be given over to salt. 12 Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine."
Ezek 47:1-12 (NKJV)

Update as of February 1, 2013 10:30 am:
The January 3, 2011 “Dow to 14,000” prophecy was fulfilled today, the DOW reached 14,000.

Please understand that when this prophecy was given about two years ago, the Dow had closed at 11,577.  Also, it had not broken above 11,600 since before the crash in 2008.   Throughout 2011 and 2012, there were numerous naysayers predicting collapse of America’s economy into another recession or depression.  There were those predicting an unraveling of the world’s global economy.  Neither happened.  And the Dow did chug, chug, chug along like that little engine that could.  It rose an impressive 21% in just two years, just like the Lord said on January 3, 2011, “Watch 14,000. Not soon, longer than a year. But that little blue engine with a noble heart chugged, chugged, chugged on. So no catastrophic crashes, no flash floods in the market.”

Where from here?  On towards 15,000.  See my August 21, 2012 tweet, “A few days ago saw in a vision DOW going to 15K after 14K. As approached 15K, sharp drop like a knife to ~12K. Saw same vision again today.” Also see my December 12, 2012 blog post:


I need to add that based on current, somewhat fuzzy visions I have of the Dow after it approaches 15,000 (please know it may not reach 15,000 but will be close), it will drop to the 13,000s and maybe not to the 12,000s.  I don’t have clarity on the extent of the drop.  However, it will be a sharp and strong correction.

Update as of April 15, 2013 11:30 am:
I realize I was not clear in saying the DOW may correct into the 13,000s rather than into the 12,000s.  What I saw in the initial 2 repetitive visions 8 months ago in August 2012 (when the DOW was about 13,300) was a sharp correction into the 12,000s after the DOW approaches 15,000.  But later, after prayer, my understanding was it may correct into the low 13,000s instead, thus below 13,500.  The DOW rose to within 113 points of 15,000 a few days ago on April 11, 2013.  Based on the two August 2012 visions of the DOW approaching 15,000 and then sharply correcting, the correction might happen any day now.  Of course, the DOW may level out for a couple weeks before it sharply corrects, I do not know.  My gut feel based on the original repetitive visions in August 2012 and subsequent prayer the last few months (please know this part is not prophecy but my gut feel after prayer) is the DOW will correct to the range of 12,800 to 13,400.

Update as of July 31, 2013 1:00 pm:
The knife-life drop in the stock market which I saw and anticipated did not happen. So I believe the vision I saw was not from the Lord but from my imagination. We all have imagination. Differentiating between seeing through the filter of our imagination and seeing what the Lord sees through the pure vision from His Spirit takes spiritual sensitivity and discernment. Unless we are perfect, we make mistakes as I did. Making a mistake is an opportunity to do what is more important: seeking first intimacy with Him and love of others, which is His kingdom. In the clarity and quiet stillness of His Spirit we will see, hear, and understand all He wants us to know and move beyond mistakes.

"2011 I will restore"

“2010 was a disappointment to many. You expected, you anticipated, I had promised you. Victory was in the wings, but for reasons you will learn later some victories were snatched from you. Yet you witnessed I was with you, even in the smallest and humblest of moments.

“So here is what is in store. What was stolen in 2010 will be shaken from the clutches of your enemy in 2011. You will rejoice like David rejoiced when he got the wives and children back. But in your celebration don't forget what you learned in the tests of fire. Have you noticed maturity is your companion, no longer a symptom of aging? Maturity is a virtue. Humility is a virtue. A contrite and quiet heart will hear me. I don't delight in brokenness. But I do draw close to the quiet and gentle soul. The one taught to weather the storms with maturity that shows My light, with radiance despite darkness around.

“So 2011 I will restore. And you will cherish the lessons learned from 2010. You will always remember affliction breeds maturity. My children are set apart and shall always be in the world but not of the world. The great trouble unearths the greatest treasures within you. Job said his eye sees me. Now your heart sees me. And you will not lose sight of the kingdom. For the kingdom is within you.”

I looked up the verses that the Lord made reference to above. Here they are, Happy New Year. I can feel the fight and indeed the maturity from the trials in my spirit, like David, ready to take back in 2011 with the Lord's strength what had been taken.

When David and his men came to Ziklag, they found it destroyed by fire and their wives and sons and daughters taken captive. So David and his men wept aloud until they had no strength left to weep. David's two wives had been captured--Ahinoam of Jezreel and Abigail, the widow of Nabal of Carmel. David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the Lord his God.
Then David said to Abiathar the priest, the son of Ahimelech, "Bring me the ephod." Abiathar brought it to him, and David inquired of the Lord, "Shall I pursue this raiding party? Will I overtake them?"
"Pursue them," he answered. "You will certainly overtake them and succeed in the rescue."
David and the six hundred men with him came to the Besor Ravine, where some stayed behind, for two hundred men were too exhausted to cross the ravine. But David and four hundred men continued the pursuit.
They found an Egyptian in a field and brought him to David. They gave him water to drink and food to eat-- part of a cake of pressed figs and two cakes of raisins. He ate and was revived, for he had not eaten any food or drunk any water for three days and three nights.
David asked him, "To whom do you belong, and where do you come from?"
He said, "I am an Egyptian, the slave of an Amalekite. My master abandoned me when I became ill three days ago. We raided the Negev of the Kerethites and the territory belonging to Judah and the Negev of Caleb. And we burned Ziklag."
David asked him, "Can you lead me down to this raiding party?"
He answered, "Swear to me before God that you will not kill me or hand me over to my master, and I will take you down to them."
He led David down, and there they were, scattered over the countryside, eating, drinking and reveling because of the great amount of plunder they had taken from the land of the Philistines and from Judah. David fought them from dusk until the evening of the next day, and none of them got away, except four hundred young men who rode off on camels and fled. David recovered everything the Amalekites had taken, including his two wives. Nothing was missing: young or old, boy or girl, plunder or anything else they had taken. David brought everything back. He took all the flocks and herds, and his men drove them ahead of the other livestock, saying, "This is David's plunder."
1 Sam 30:3-20 (NIV)

This is what the Lord says:
"Heaven is my throne,
and the earth is my footstool.
Where is the house you will build for me?
Where will my resting place be?
Has not my hand made all these things,
and so they came into being?"
declares the Lord.
"This is the one I esteem:
he who is humble and contrite in spirit,
and trembles at my word."
Isaiah 66:1-2 (NIV)

For thus says the High and Lofty One
Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:
"I dwell in the high and holy place,
With him who has a contrite and humble spirit,
To revive the spirit of the humble,
And to revive the heart of the contrite ones."
Isaiah 57:15 (NKJV)

...the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
1 Peter 3:4 (NKJV)

[Job said to the Lord:] "I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You."
Job 42:5 (NKJV)

Jesus replied, "The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you."
Luke 17:20-21 (NIV)
