We are privileged to live during these days when many Bible prophecies are being fulfilled. Previous generations longed to see these things, but it was not for their time. As these events unfold, it will be the best of times and worst of times at the same time, forever transforming life as we have known it.
God has already sent forth many messengers with warnings of trouble ahead, but the calls have been mostly ignored and even ridiculed because multitudes are in a deep spiritual sleep, unable to hear the call, so God, in His great mercy, is now sending a much louder wake-up call in the form of a great shaking that will ultimately shake everything that can be shaken. To those who are still sleeping, it will appear to be the worst of times as they will be perplexed and confused by the events unfolding around them, but to the remnant, it will be the best of times because we will see God’s faithfulness revealed as His mighty hand performs great signs and wonders. (Isaiah 60)
What’s coming will be a repeat performance of what happened long ago when a righteous remnant of the Israelites passed through the wilderness to take possession of the Promised Land. Many perished along the way because of their unbelief, but the surviving remnant held fast to God’s promises and took the land by faith. In the same way, a righteous remnant in our generation has endured a long season in the wilderness, but they are now arising to take possession of the Promised Land where they will soon begin their new assignments as laborers during the greatest harvest season of all time as the Lord of the Harvest draws multitudes into His Kingdom. (Isaiah 60:1-5, Amos 9:13-15, Zechariah 2:10-12, Matthew 13:24-30, Mark 16:15-18, John 12:32-33, Acts 1:7-8)
It Has Already Started:
We are already seeing evidence that these things have started, as shown by the 20% drop in the S&P stock market since it made a new all-time high on February 19. I believe this is the start of the fulfillment of a dream God gave me last year showing sudden destruction coming during a time of great strength, illustrated in the dream by the Hebrew word gibbor, which means mighty and strong, but suddenly the b’s changed to 6’s as gibbor changed to gi66or. For more details, see my post published on September 22, 2019, Prophetic Dream Reveals Sudden Destruction Coming Upon Global Financial Markets.
My wife and I go to Costco every week to buy our groceries, but things were different there this past Friday. First, we noticed the product demos, which are normally positioned all throughout the store, were eerily absent. Then we noticed many of the shelves were empty, especially toilet paper, paper towels, and antiseptic solutions. We saw signs posted to limit purchase quantities of these items. While we were watching, another pallet of paper towels was brought out from the back warehouse, but by the time it reached its’ designated location, customers had already taken all but a few rolls and those also disappeared fast. Then we overhead an outspoken Costco employee complaining about customers hoarding items due to over-reacting to warnings from the Center for Disease Control regarding the threat of being quarantined in their homes by the coronavirus. He was right about over reacting because that’s what we all tend to do when we’re afraid, but based on recent warnings I’ve received in dreams and visions, I believe this is only the beginning of far greater trouble ahead.
I believe God put it on my heart to send out this warning because many of His people are not aware of what’s coming. For example, a Christian friend of mine bought stocks last week, thinking he was getting bargain prices, not realizing he could have bought them for a much lower price if he had waited a little while longer.
Another example showing trouble has arrived is the recent outbreak of the coronavirus. As Rachel Baxter shared in her post a few days ago, it’s arrival fulfilled the prophetic warning she received in 2017 to the very day, a famine beginning on January 16. (see Rachel’s post)
It has only taken a few weeks for it to spread throughout the world, killing many people and causing severe disruptions in China, India, and other nations, shutting down factory production and financial markets. The impact of those disruptions is just starting to be felt in the United States, but it’s only a matter of time before we see more severe disruptions.
Americans today are more dependent than ever on other nations, especially China, due to decades of transferring our manufacturing jobs overseas, making us more vulnerable than ever to shortages of basic necessities. Even many items still made in the USA rely on parts made in China. Major retail stores, like Walmart and Target, rely on sales of many products made in China, which will soon be unavailable because, according to some reports, the final cargo shipments from China arrived in U.S. ports on March 6. The best case scenario for the arrival of the next shipments is October 2020, seven months from now, but that assumes Chinese factories immediately resume full scale production, which is very unlikely. A more realistic estimate is mid-2021.
Katherine Hepburn Dream:
In a dream on August 17, 2019, I was watching an old black and white movie on a very old model television. It reminded me of the first televisions ever made. The movie showed a man on water skis carrying a woman as they were being pulled fast by a speed boat from left to right. My view was zoomed in on them so I never saw the boat. They were doing acrobatic tricks as the woman was being lifted and twirled around the man. As they were doing that, they counted out loud, “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8”.
Then the scene changed and the same man and woman were on a sandy hill overlooking the ocean. The man was laying on a towel and the woman was standing next to him a little to the right from my perspective as I was standing between them and the water. Then I recognized the woman was Kathrine Hepburn and she was young, like in her early 20’s. She was in her prime and very beautiful. The man was looking up at her as she was laughing and very happy.
Then she took off running fast down the hill towards the water. I ran after her and caught up with her just as she reached the edge of the water. Then we hugged tightly and both fell down to the ground with her landing on top of me because we were still holding onto each other. I looked over her left shoulder and noticed the two sides of her bottom. End of dream.
Watching an old black and white movie on an old model television represents a repeat of something that happened long ago. The man and woman represent market traders. Men are dream symbols for buyers so they represent bullish moves in prices, which are traded with long positions, because men are taller than women. Women represent bearish moves, traded with short positions, because women are typically shorter than men.
Navigating over water without getting wet, as they were doing on ski’s, is a common dream symbol representing successfully trading a drop in the markets. Moving from left to right, also represents a drop in the markets because price lines on charts move to the right when they drop, and they were moving fast. Their acrobatic moves showed big price movements up and down, increased volatility. They counted their moves out loud showing 8 major moves in prices in a market crash that will resemble a previous crash long ago.
In the next scene, I recognized the woman was Katherine Hepburn. She looked like she was in her early 20’s. I looked it up and found she was born May 12 1907, so at the time of the Oct 1929 crash, she was 22 years old, which is exactly how old she looked in the dream. I believe her age is a clue revealing God’s plans for these events, as explained later in this article.
Her smiling and laughing at the beach represents the joy felt by sellers as prices drop fast. Her running fast down the hill to the water represents the biggest move of the crash, which typically happens near the end as the market enters a short period of panic selling, so the first 8 moves were just setting the stage for the larger drops to come.
When we reached the water, we embraced and fell to the ground, representing another drop down to a lower low following the first big drop. This was confirmed by the final scene as the dream ended where I noticed the two sides of her bottom. I believe this symbolized a double bottom as the market bounces after reaching the first bottom and then drops to a lower bottom. So the second scene of the dream includes three big moves, starting with a big drop, then bouncing back up and then dropping even lower. Adding the first 8 moves with the final 3 makes a total of 11.
The day after I received this dream, I felt impressed to study the 1929 market crash, so I spent the whole day studying it and have continued studying it since then. Amazingly, I found 8 major moves happened in the first part of the crash, including three very fast moves that only took one trading day to complete. Then came another three moves that were much larger than all the previous moves, making a total of 11. Since I had not known this prior to the dream, I believe it was a great confirmation of what I saw.
My interpretation of this dream is that God is revealing we are about to see a repeat of the 1929 market crash. Since He called my attention to 8 moves prior to the panic selling followed by 3 moves during the panic selling, it implies this crash will repeat the same number of moves, but we’ll have to wait and see if that’s the right interpretation.
The Greater One is With Us:
God often gets blamed for all the trouble, but He is not the culprit. If He had His way, all the blessings of heaven would be manifesting on earth, but His will is not always done on earth as it is in heaven, so we are all suffering the consequences. (Matthew 6:10) Instead, all this trouble is being caused by evil people advancing their evil schemes to enrich and empower themselves at the expense of everyone else. Filled with the spirit of antichrist, they’re doing what they’ve always done and will continue to do until the end, going forth conquering by starting wars, spreading lies, committing murders, and manipulating markets. (Revelation 6:1-2) They cause market crashes to transfer the wealth of hard working citizens into their own accounts. Then they buy up stocks at bargain prices to gain increased control over corporations.
Despite their evil schemes, God’s plans are not being derailed or delayed. What our adversary has planned for our harm, God is turning around for our good, showing once again He is far bigger than Satan’s schemes.
In addition to the Katherine Hepburn dream, I received two other prophetic insights last year that I have only recently begun to understand. The first came on January 28, 2019, when I saw a red 1665. At the time, I had no idea what it meant, but a few days ago during my prayer time, I believe God showed me it was red because it was showing the size of the drop in the markets, specifically 1665 S&P points. He shows me S&P numbers because it’s the only market I’ve been trading in the past few years.
Amazingly, a drop of 1665 points from the February 19 top at 3393.52 would be exactly 49%, which is the same percentage drop as the 1929 crash! Had I known the meaning sooner, I could have accurately predicted the top by dividing 1665 by the exact percentage drop in 1929, which was .4912 to get 3390, which is just 3.52 points from the actual February 19 top, 3393.52.
Another amazing thing about the red 1665 is by subtracting it from the 3393.52 top, it puts the bottom at 1728.52 S&P points, which is the exact level identified by one of the most commonly used technical analysis tools used by traders to forecast price movements, called a Trend Based Fibonacci Extension. By entering the actual historical prices from the recent tops and bottoms, as listed below, this tool is projecting a drop to 1729.07 at the 2.618 Fibonacci level, which is less than 1 point from 1728.52. Of course, I had no way of knowing that back in January 2019.
• February 19 top at 3393.52
• February 28 bottom at 2855.84
• March 3 top at 3136.72
On September 8, 2019, I received a second clue revealing another 49. In the dream, I saw the date, April 29. That was the whole dream. Like the red 1665, I had no idea what it meant, but I recently discovered April 29 is 49 trading days from the February 19 top, which is exactly the same number of trading days from top to bottom in the 1929 crash.
Prior to the 1929 crash, markets had rallied throughout the roaring twenties to an all-time high, but when the destruction came upon them, it only took 49 trading days for mighty Wall Street to drop 49%, and the impact of that brief period was felt for many years. Could it be that God is going to orchestrate these events in such detail that this crash will repeat the 1929 crash by also dropping 49% in 49 trading days? The odds of that happening once are remote, but twice is impossible without God.
He did not specifically tell me those numbers would be repeated, so I can only speculate at this time, but I am sharing this because I was amazed by how they seem to be pointing to that conclusion. Another possibility is He is calling our attention to those numbers because they were part of the 1929 crash and have significance for the new season ahead, as explained below. Either way, I believe God is revealing He has good things in store for us as we are entering a new season ahead.
Interpreting the Numbers:
The number 49 has great prophetic significance because it equals 7 times 7, which equates to a week of weeks, which is exactly the number of years God designated as one Jubilee period, which is a time when debts are forgiven and acts of oppression against God’s people are stopped. (Leviticus 25:1-22) I believe God is calling our attention to 49 because we are now entering a condensed Jubilee period in which He is wiping away the debts of His people and bringing an end to the season of oppression we have endured.
The instructions for observing the Jubilee were first given to the Israelites by Moses as they were about to enter the Promised Land. (Leviticus 25:1-2) And it was during the Passover that they crossed the Jordan River to enter the land.
This year, Passover occurs from April 8-16, based on the Hebrew calendar dates, Nisan 14-22. Based on the 49 trading day countdown, Passover aligns with trading days 35-40 from the February 19 top.
The Promised Land is described as a place of sweet provision, a land flowing with milk and honey. (Exodus 3:8) Passing over the Jordan River during Passover marked the end of their long season of bondage in Egypt where they were ruled over by hard taskmasters and being severely tested in the wilderness. In their new season, the tables were turned as God put the fear of them upon all the inhabitants of the land, as He said to Joshua, “This day I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you.” (Joshua 5:9)
So it was, when all the kings of the Amorites who were on the west side of the Jordan, and all the kings of the Canaanites who were by the sea, heard that the Lord had dried up the waters of the Jordan from before the children of Israel until we had crossed over, that their heart melted; and there was no spirit in them any longer because of the children of Israel. (Joshua 5:1 NKJV)
Like the Israelites, many of God’s people today have endured a long season of bondage, especially bondage to debt, including credit cards, mortgages, college loan and auto loans. Debts have reached record levels in recent years, requiring us to spend our hard earned money to pay interest and fees to our lenders, making us a slave because the borrower is always the servant to the lender. (Proverbs 22:7)
As explained in more detail below, I believe God is highlighting the two 49’s in the 1929 crash specifically at this time because we are now approaching Passover and this year it will have great significance, once again marking the end of one season and start of a new season in which a righteous remnant in our generation finally crosses over to the other side and takes possession of the Promised Land. This was the topic of my book, Remnant, The Righteous Remnant Now Arises.
But the Israelites didn’t just enter the land to pass through it. They came to take possession by force. Even as they were crossing the Jordan River, 40,000 of them were already armed for battle with their sights set on the plains of Jericho. (Joshua 4:12-13) That’s where they celebrated the Passover on the 14th day of Nisan, which aligns this year with Monday, April 8. (Joshua 5:10) And the next day, they ate the first fruits of the land. (Joshua 5:11) And the day after that, the manna from heaven stopped falling because they ate the food of the Promised Land from that day on. (Joshua 5:12)
At that time, Joshua encountered the Captain of the Army of the Lord and received instructions for taking Jericho. (Joshua 5:13-15) As shown in the scripture passage below, His instructions reveal the significance of the double 49’s, because on the 7th day, they were instructed to march around the walls of the city 7 times, marking the first 49 (7 x 7), and while they were doing that, 7 priests were instructed to blow 7 trumpets, marking the second 49.
2 And the Lord said to Joshua, “See! I have given Jericho into your hand, its’ king, and the mighty men of valor.
3 You shall march around the city, all you men of war; you shall go all around the city once. This you shall do six days.
4 And seven priests shall bear seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark. But the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets.
5 It shall come to pass, when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, that all the people shall shout with a great shout; then the wall of the city will fall down flat. And the people shall go up every man straight before him.” (Joshua 6:2-5 NKJV)
Simply by following the Lord’s instructions by faith, the walls of mighty Jericho came crashing down. And the battle was marked by double 49’s, just like the 1929 crash. The number seven has great significance because it represents completion, the end of one season and start of a new one, and a new level of maturity among those who passed the tests in the wilderness, but I believe the sevens are just the first of two important messages God is revealing.
The Power of Two:
It took more than a single seven to bring down the walls of Jericho. It took two sevens working together plus another two working together. The power of the sevens were multiplied when they came together in agreement to produce a far more powerful result than just one working alone, so it produced more than enough power to bring down the walls of Jericho.
In the same way, one righteous person attaining a new level of maturity is powerful all by itself, but the impact is multiplied when two come together in agreement. One can put a thousand to flight, but two can put ten thousand to flight. (Deuteronomy 32:30)
The number two was also revealed in my Katherine Hepburn dream. Not only was she 22 years old, but the dream showed a repeat of a crash that had 11 moves. If this crash repeats those moves like my dream seemed to indicate, it would make two 11’s added together, making another 22.
God did not design us to live alone, but to be joined together in unity, as illustrated by His creation of Adam and Eve, rather than just Adam all alone. He designed the two to become one flesh by the joining together of a man and woman in marriage. (Matthew 19:4-6 NKJV)
I believe God is emphasizing the number two because we are now entering a season of greater unity among His people than we have ever had before, marching in perfect step with one another as a mighty army, with our eyes fixed on taking possession of all His promises to the righteous.
I saw this in the second of two dreams God gave me in December 2015, which were the basis for writing my book, which includes a whole chapter devoted to unity. I saw two columns of young people, marching in perfect step across a dock as they were boarding a yellow submarine. I believe they were the young people of our generation who are now arising to fulfill what the prophet Joel saw. (Joel 2:7-11) And I saw the older people were helping to mentor them so they could run faster than any generation before them.
As part of my research for writing it, I studied the scriptures to find all His promises for which righteousness is the only requirement. Amazingly, I found exactly 222 promises, which I believe is another confirmation of the significance of unity in this new season. And my book was completed in 2 parts with a total of 22 chapters.
And I was in awe when I counted the days to discover the two days I received the two clues regarding the two 49’s were separated by exactly 222 days. So I then checked the date when I received the Katherine Hepburn dream and found it was exactly 22 days before I received the second clue revealing the date, April 29.
Through these numbers, I believe God is showing that He is in control of what’s coming, far more in control than we even realize. He is so far ahead of the evil one, He is even using his schemes to accomplish His plans and purposes, making His name known to all the world. Just as Joshua told the Israelites, these things are happening “that all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of the Lord, that it is mighty, that you may fear the Lord your God forever.” (Joshua 4:24 NKJV)
As the Day of the Lord’s return draws closer, unprecedented trouble is coming. (Daniel 12:1, Matthew 24:21) These things happening now are just the beginning of a long series of events that will continue for many years, ultimately escalating so much, men’s hearts will fail due to being gripped with fear. (Luke 21:26) But we have good news because the righteous have nothing to fear when trouble comes because God reveals these things ahead of time so we can prepare and we have His promise to be with us through it all. (Psalm 23)
I don’t expect this market crash to cause the financial system to collapse, but it might look like it for a brief time. I believe we are still years away from another crash that will cause the financial system to collapse, but this crash might cause some temporary disruptions in our financial markets and might temporarily limit our access to banks and cash. These are just my own thoughts based on what has happened during previous market crashes. Hopefully those disruptions will not happen this time.
I believe one of the best things we can do to prepare ourselves is by taking our eyes off the big price movements in the markets and all the news about the coronavirus and all sorts of other trouble. Focusing on those things robs us of our faith and opens the door for fear to come. We make bad decisions when we’re in fear because it’s the opposite of faith. A far better strategy is keeping our eyes focused on what God has spoken in His word and in personal revelations He has given each of us. Just like He told Joshua:
8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:8-9 NKJV)
I believe many people will be seeking answers during the days ahead, giving us opportunities to share the good news of Jesus Christ with them. By keeping our focus on God and His word, we will be ready to make the most of every opportunity. Beyond that, I believe it would be wise to stock up on some essential items such as gasoline, propane, rice, water, cash and batteries, but again, those are just my own ideas, so it might not even be necessary.
As I stated above, I believe we are already seeing the start of these events, so time is short. I encourage you to share this warning with your friends and family on social media sites, emails and whatever means available.
May the Lord bless you and your family with His protection and provision in the days ahead.
