American Eclipse Part 2 - America's Doom?

An eclipse crossed America from sea to sea without touching another country on August 21st, 2017. There are many people proclaiming that this American Eclipse was a sign that God’s judgment will soon come. Is it the doom they are declaring, the end of our country, or something else? The answer to this single questions is complex.

God brought my attention to interesting parallels with the American eclipse:

  • In 1918 an eclipse went from coast to coast and also passed over the Bahamas then America emerged victorious from World War One.
  • The last time an eclipse crossed the entire country and didn’t cross another country was in 1776, the year America became a nation.
  • The American Eclipse was 67 miles wide. In 1967 the “Jesus people” or Jesus movement began.
  • The eclipse happened on August 21. Psalms 82:1 says, “GOD STANDS in the assembly [of the representatives] of God; in the midst of the magistrates or judges He gives judgment [as] among the gods.” (AMPC) The new level of  spiritual authority will come to the Body of Christ as knowledge spreads about the Courts of Heaven. This is the long hidden, missing key to our authority.

All of these things are positive, not doom and gloom. This eclipse is definitely an important sign, but what does it mean? America’s southern coast has been hammered by record-breaking weather this summer. Fires swept across the northwest. I asked the Lord what these things meant. The Holy Spirit brought things connected to the hurricanes to my attention in a way that has become a pattern in my life.

What can America expect?


“We know that the very same sign- a solar eclipse- was sent to the people of Nineveh to warn them- REPENT! Or be destroyed!”

Yes, God sent an eclipse before Nineveh was destroyed. God also sent a prophet, Jonah, to warn them of the impending doom so that they would have a chance to change their ways before judgment came.

If the American Solar Eclipse is a sign of impending doom and judgement, we should be looking for a prophet to appear. What kind of prophet? The second commentator held that answer.


The commentator online, who will remain nameless, and a friend were discussing what would be the worst Hurricane Irma could do, none of which has come to pass, so I won’t bother repeating it here. “Just then he looked at the time on his cell phone and it was 11:11. ‘That's weird,’ he said. The Holy Spirit whispered that I should look at the biblical significance of 11.”

As the commentator explained what the number eleven meant according to dream interpretation, Holy Spirit said, “She got this wrong.” There are well meaning people who really do hear from God then go in a completely wrong direction. They prophesy the obvious doom of the impending storm instead of what God is really saying.

The number eleven means heroes of the Bible, great faith, and chaos. In this case, this was only a partial meaning. The Holy Spirit spoke loud and clear inside my head, “Look up passages in the Bible that are 11:11”

The time they were given “11:11”  even looks like a scripture verse. I started in the Old Testament (OT) and the quiet voice of the Holy Spirit came in a whisper, “It is in the New Testament (NT).”

“Okay, but I’m not skipping ahead,” I replied.

Sure enough, none of the OT scriptures brought any meaning. The moment I read Matthew 11:11 I knew this is what He wanted to say. Each and every verse in the NT lined up to form a hidden message from God. The presence of the Holy Spirit became stronger and stronger with each verse I read in the NT as He showed me the meaning and how it worked together with the last verse. The very last 11:11 confirms that this is who He is speaking of, so keep reading…

Here are the verses and the meaning behind them:

Verse 1
Truly I tell you, among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist… (Matthew 11:11 AMPC)

Meaning: The second verse I read was actually the last 11:11 in Revelation. Because of questions and information God gave me over these last three years, I knew this was an answer to question I had asked two years ago. God said to me, in a nearly audible voice, “I called a witness to my Son’s first coming, would I not call a witness to His second coming?” (See that story click here)

I have asked God ever since, “John the Baptist was prophesied about in the OT, where is the prophet to the second coming in the Bible?” The moment I read these two verses, a strong knowing formed in my spirit: God had finally revealed the answer by every 11:11 in the NT.

Verse 2
And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve. (Mark 11:11 KJV)

Meaning: I had no idea what this verse was referring to, so I read the passages before it so I would know what was transpiring. Jesus had made His triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Good Friday where people had lined the streets laying palm branches and their cloaks before Him, shouting, “Hosanna.” This was a greeting for a king. Jesus then went straight to the temple. This was Jesus’ first coming which Israel did not fully recognize.

Jesus usually went to the temple to teach. He knew what time it was and how late it was before He went to the temple. So why did He go? Jesus wasn’t at the temple as a teacher. He had come into the city as the King. When He arrived at the temple He “looked around” and no one was there to greet Him as King, so He left.

John the Baptist was called the witness of the coming of Jesus. It was His job to announce the arrival of the King which is what happened in this verse: Jesus arrived as King. This verse shows the job of the Witness of the Coming of Jesus; to announce His arrival. This verified that it is the job of the Witness of the Second Coming we are discussing.

Verse 3
What father among you, if his son asks for a loaf of bread, will give him a stone; or if he asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent? (Luke 11:11 AMPC)

Meaning: Once again I needed to read a few verses before this one: They speak of asking of God and seeking God and because of this you will receive from God.

This, too, is in the job description of the Witness of the Coming of Jesus. The baptism that John performed was a declaration by people that they were going to turn from the sin that had drawn them away from God and go back to God as they prepared for the arrival of Jesus. This renewal of relationship with God was the best gift they could receive.

Usually Israelites would have to bring sacrifices (which cost money) to obtain forgiveness. However, John was preaching that it was a matter of the heart: come and change your ways and be baptized so that you are ready for the appearance of Jesus. It was from these baptisms that John earned the name, John the Baptist.

The Witness to the Second Coming will also be bringing a message of the free gift, a good gift from God.

Verse 4
He said these things, and then added, Our friend Lazarus is at rest and sleeping; but I am going there that I may awaken him out of his sleep. (Luke 11:11 AMPC)

Meaning: The leaders of the body of Christ are looking for the Awakening because the church is asleep. John the Baptist certainly woke up the nation of Israel. Look for the anointing of the Lord upon His Witness that will awaken His church.

These first four verses show the ministry, the job description, of the Witness of The Second Coming of Jesus. Since we have John the Baptist’s ministry to compare it to, it is easy to see.

Verse 5
And right then the three men sent to me from Caesarea arrived at the house in which we were. (Acts 11:11)

Meaning: The two verses before this give the meaning of a vision Peter had. Gentiles are no longer unclean. These three men arrive to take Peter to the home of the first Gentile who will receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Could this mean that the Witness to the Second Coming is a Gentile?

Verse 6
So I ask, Have they stumbled so as to fall [to their utter spiritual ruin, irretrievably]? By no means! But through their false step and transgression salvation [has come] to the Gentiles, so as to arouse Israel [to see and feel what they forfeited] and so to make them jealous. (Romans 11:11 AMPC)

Meaning: This is speaking of the fact that Israel rejected Jesus so that salvation could come to the Gentiles. What God brings to and through the Gentiles will provoke the Jews to jealousy.

The Bible tells us that through two witnesses a thing is proven. This is why we always look for two verses in the Bible to support our position on something. God gave us this second verse to verify that the next Witness of the Coming of Jesus will be a Gentile and it will provoke Israel to jealousy.

Verse 7
Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man nor man of woman; (1 Corinthians 11:11)

Meaning: This comes at the end of what is perhaps the most misunderstood portion of the entire Bible. As much as I love the Amplified Version of the Bible, 1 Corinthians is understood better in every other version except the Amplified.

At the time this was written, Rabbis, such as Paul, would receive letters with questions about God and His ways. The Rabbi would then write a “Responsa,” a letter answering that question. These letters would often repeat the question, lest the reader forget what he was asking, then the answer would be stated.

The entire book of 1 Corinthians is a “responsa” written from Paul to the Corinthians. If you look carefully you will see a pattern of a statement then an answer given. By chapter 14 the questions are so outrageous that Paul writes, “What! did the word of God originate with you… is there a prophet with a new word?” This shows that these things he has just stated are far outside Jewish teachings.

In this case, 11:11 is the beginning of the answer to what was previously stated. Verse 12 completes that answer: “woman came out of man (in the beginning of time) but now man comes out of woman, so in God’s eyes they are equal, there is no difference.”

The Prophet to the Second Coming will be a woman. There is a foreshadow of this in the NT. When Jesus’ parents brings Him to the temple as a baby there are two people waiting to acknowledge Him as the Son of God. The first is a man name Simeon who prophesied over Him, the second is also a prophet, a woman named Anna.

The first Witness of the Coming of Jesus was a man, the second will be a women.

Verse 8
And why? Because I do not love you? God knows I do! (2 Corinthians 11:11)

Meaning: God is taking a minute to remind us that He is sending His witness because of His love for us.

Verse 9
Because of faith also Sarah herself received physical power to conceive a child, even when she was long past the age for it, because she considered [God] Who had given her the promise to be reliable and trustworthy and true to His word. (Hebrews 11:11 AMPC)

Meaning: Here is the second verse about a woman and one who “received physical power.” Just as Sarah, Abraham’s wife, became the mother of the Israeli nation, so will there be a female prophet to the Second Coming of Jesus.

More than one of the prophetic voices (men) of today has stated that men are not getting the job done, that God is raising up women for this next  move of God. I’m not sure they know how right they are!

Verse 10
But after three and a half days, by God’s gift the breath of life again entered into them, and they rose up on their feet, and great dread and terror fell on those who watched them. (Revelation 11:11 AMPC)

Meaning: Look at the perfect flow of all the 11:11 verses. First, the two positive meanings of 11 are “Bible heroes” and “great faith.” Both apply to John the Baptist. The first 11:11 in the NT begins with declaring who is being talked about, the Witness of Jesus. The job description is given first, then the description of the individual who will fulfill it. The very last verse is the death of the witness; both of them actually. God used 10 verses to reveal this truth. The biblical meaning of the number 10 is ordination which means to confer holy orders on someone. Only God could orchestrate such a thing where every piece has a perfect meaning!

Years ago when I told people God said that He was calling a Witness to His Second Coming many asked, “Does this mean that those are the two witnesses in Revelation?”

And I will grant the power of prophecy to My two witnesses for 1,260 (42 months; three and one-half years), dressed in sackcloth. (Revelation 11:3)
Well, since they are both called “The witness” of the Coming of Jesus and it now appears the there will be two of them, it does seem to be the case. Most people read the passages about the two witnesses being the “two olive trees” which stand before God and assume they both must be from Israel since the country is often referred to the olive tree. However, the Gentiles are called “the wild olive tree grafted in.” Once a tree is grafted in, they are one and the same. Gentiles are also olive trees.

Consider this: Many think Enoch will be one of the two witnesses because he never died but was taken directly up into Heaven. Enoch lived before Abraham, before there was a Jewish nation. Enoch was a Gentile.

John the Baptist wasn’t Elijah reincarnated. In the book of Luke it says, “he will go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah” speaking of John the Baptist. This means the same heart and gifting that Elijah had, John also had. Therefore the two witnesses are not two mysterious people coming from Heaven, but people born here on Earth with the heart and gifting for the job at hand.

America’s Future - Troubled Times Ahead

In the unedited account of my journey with God, To Heaven and Back Again (a free book) I record how God has said that there is a world-wide financial collapse coming. Because it is a ways off and there are other things that are going to happen first, I didn't feel the need to stir up a panic over this coming disaster. First there must be an outpouring of Glory. Until you see ALL being healed in the name of Jesus, this calamity is not going to happen.

Right now we are in a period of Awakening. God is drawing people to Him. Do you feel a tugging on your heart, a hunger for more of Him? This is what the Awakening is about.

There is a pattern for this in the Bible. In the Book of Acts, God’s Spirit (His glory) was poured out through the disciples on Pentecost. They were empowered as Jesus said they would be. Then later in we learn:

And one of them named Agabus stood up and prophesied through the [Holy] Spirit that a great and severe famine would come upon the whole world. And this did occur during the reign of Claudius. (Acts 11:28)
Agabus was a prophet. He warned the disciples about the coming famine. God poured out His glory, then a world catastrophe came. If God is taking His people back to the power He displayed at Pentecost, then there will be backlash in the natural. A worldwide great depression will follow.

Even when it does come to pass, it is nothing to worry about if you have a relationship with Jesus. Do NOT give fear a place in your life. If you draw close to Him during this Awakening and learn to operate in His ways as He is pouring out His glory, you will be okay. Christians will be doing as Jesus did: one meal will feed 5000.

The ability of America, or any nation for that matter, to recover from this coming depression depends on what they do when God’s glory comes. Angels will be sent to quickly restore and aid nations who turn away from sin and back to God. Those nations where the majority of people gather for the miracles, signs and wonders yet still continue to sin will take longer to recover and be hit harder.

This does not mean that we should point our finger at people and say: “stop sinning!” Jesus tells us to take care of the plank (our sin) in our own eye before we try to help our brother. Our job is to love God and love each other. The Holy Spirit and the Word of God are responsible for convicting people of their sin.

Believers' Boot Camp series

Believers' Boot Camp - Volume One
Believers' Boot Camp: Volume Two
Roadmap to Heaven
Destroying Curses
in the Courts of Heaven

Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
  • Knowing what weapons are available 
  • Learning how to use those weapons 
  • Receiving orders and following them 
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father. 

The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.

Volume 1: Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?

Eager hearts cry out, hoping for a single word to confirm that He hears us. Yet, many times the only sound is silence. Over the years I have heard several reasons why God speaks to some and not to others. One night, as I tossed and turned, I brought each of these reasons before the Lord, stating why each of them did not line up with who I thought He was. 

Words rose from my soul, pleading for Him to reveal why He has remained silent when a single word from Him would mean so much to so many. For the next few hours, God used things I learned about years ago and things I had just discovered to show why He talks to some and why He doesn’t, and in demonstrative ways. 

In His grace, He also showed me how people could hear more from Him. Basic instructions on how to hear more from God and how to be led by Him are included in this book. Thank you for taking time to consider the answers I received and share with you now.
