Word of the Lord

Prophetic word of coming judgment of God

upon the U.S. bringing her downfall.

A Year Later:

The Ongoing Economic Crisis Since 2008



Before you read this, you need to know how I feel about my country.  I love America.  I do not wish any harm to come to my nation, its people, or its land.  I am extremely patriotic–so much so that I cry every time I try to sing the National Anthem, see any kind of military processional, or watch the fly over of the jets before a sporting event.  When I hear others, especially American citizens, speaking against this nation, I want to yell, “If you hate America so much then LEAVE!”  This word from the Lord that came to me like a rushing torrent of water was as shaking to me as it will be to you when you read it.  I encourage you, read it aloud, and you will sense the heart of the Father by His Spirit.  And if you love America, you will weep, as I do, each time you read it.


Jan’s Journal: Tuesday, April 10, 2007    (5 A.M. CST)

(This word of the Lord came suddenly and flowed quickly as I typed what I heard the Lord saying.)

WOE! Oh Lord my God, I hear You saying WOE to the inhabitants of America…the great United States.  For because of her sin I will pluck up and tear down.  I will crush those who have opposed me saith the Lord.  I alone will do this.  For in my indignation I will pour out my fury against those who with stiff necks have rebelled against my will saith the Lord. Too long! For too long you have walked in pride and arrogance, esteeming yourself much higher than you are.  Do you not know that it was “I” who established you?  Do you not know and understand that it was “I” who allowed you to be birthed.  Do you not understand that it was YOU that I saw lying in your own blood when you were young, just born, dying.  And it was “I” saith the Lord who cleansed you from the bloodshed, who delivered you from deaths blow, who cleansed you and caused you to rise up from that bloody field time and time again? I planted you and you came up as a fruitful vine.  I watered you and you became a glorious tree giving forth fruit and feeding many.  But you are now diseased by your own greed, saith the Lord.  You, like your sisters Sodom and Gomorrah have defiled yourself.  You too have lifted your skirt and lain down with every stranger.  You have defiled yourself with the nations of the world.  Have I not given you everything you could imagine?  Have I not given you riches and glory?  Have I not set you up as I did Nebuchadnezzar with power and might more than any other nation on the earth?  Have I not blessed you with my covenant?  But you have forsaken me, the giver of life.  You have forsaken me, the fountain of living water.  And because you have forsaken me, I will write your name in the dust and you will be a shame and disgrace.  You will be no more.  The nations of the world will come and look at you and say, “Oh Great One, what have you done to deserve such judgment?”  Nations will mourn over you, but those that you laid with will laugh.  They will laugh and mock at your downfall. Many times I have called you to myself to repent and to turn away from the plans of man, but you are rebellious and stiff-necked and will not heed my warnings.  So because you have refused to heed my warnings, I will put scales upon your eyes that you cannot see.  As Samson, judge of Israel who also rebelled against me and lay with the enemy of God, I will remove your strength and cause you to be taken captive.  I will blind you so that you too cannot see.  Just as they laughed and scorned him, they too will laugh and scorn you. But, there is a remnant, a remnant that I will strengthen, and through that remnant I will raise up a mighty army of intercessor’s who will tear down, who will bring down the walls of my enemies.  For I will conquer, saith the Lord.  I will arise in my fury and destroy the wicked.  For everything and everyone who exalts itself against me shall perish at my presence. You America have been weighed in the balance and have been found wanting.  You who said, “I have need of nothing, I am rich, I am powerful needing nothing.”  But do you not see?  No, saith the Lord, you cannot see.  Your pride and your greed have blinded you to your own disgrace.  You have deceived yourself.  Your pride and your greed have opened up a chasm so deep that you will not arise from it.  The prophets have cried out but you have refused to listen.  I have put my words in their mouths and you have made your face hard against them.  But though you have turned a deaf ear, though you have refused those that I have sent, they will still speak my word.  For I have planted them in the world to call forth the righteous judgment that is mine saith the Lord.  I have placed lamentations and woe in their mouths for you did not heed the warnings.  They have put the trumpet to their mouths and you did not heed the call, you did not come.  So, because you did not come when I beckoned you, I will not receive you when you plead with me.  It is your pride that has blinded you, and your greed that has defiled. What more can I say?  You are a nation despised.



God confirmed this word of judgment from the Lord 2 months to the day after he spoke it in 2007, but I would not remember this confirmation until 09.21.2009 (at the time this word is being fulfilled) when God brought it back to my mind.  I had to do a search in my journals for the word Obadiah to find where I had written the details.  I want to share this confirmation with you.

Sunday  06.10.2007 Exactly 2 months to the day after the Lord spoke this word to me,  I sat down in my Sunday morning Bible Study class at church and the teacher had us read from Obadiah.  Though I have read Obadiah in the past, it had been so long since I had read from this book that I could not remember who this prophet was prophesying to and what it was about.  As I began to hear and see some of the exact words in Obadiah that the Lord had spoken in “Woe To America” weeks earlier, words that were seared in my heart and mind, I knew that God was giving me confirmation of what He had spoken—confirmation from His Word spoken to another prophet—another seer.

At one point, the teacher made a statement that was so telling of America.  She spoke of how this nation of Edom, looking out at the surrounding nations and enemies thought that no other nation could bring her down, but failed to look up and consider that GOD would fight her from heaven.  I looked at Matthew Henry’s commentary of these passages and saw that his summary was exactly what America is guilty of and what God was saying in “Woe To America.”

This book is wholly concerning Edom, a nation nearly allied and near adjoining to Israel, and yet an enemy to the seed of Jacob, inheriting the enmity of their father Esau to Jacob. Now here we have, after the preface v. 1. I. Threatenings against Edom, 1. That their pride should be humbled (v. 2-4). 2. That their wealth should be plundered (v. 5-7). 3. That their wisdom should be infatuated (v. 8,9). 4. That their spiteful behaviour towards God’s Israel should be avenged (v. 10-16). —Matthew Henry Unabridged

In “Woe To America” God is saying that America’s pride and arrogance, her greed, and her maltreatment of Israel will be judged.  When God spoke this word to me, I knew judgment would come, but I did not know in what form.  If you notice in verses 2-4, and in the above commentary by Matthew Henry, this nations PRIDE would be humbled, their WEALTH would be plundered and their WISDOM infatuated.  Along with that, their SPITEFUL BEHAVIOR TOWARD GOD’S ISRAEL would be avenged.

What began as much as two years prior to this Word of the Lord would begin to manifest fully a year after this word.    America’s pride would indeed be humbled by the economic crisis that would come to this nation.  That crisis, to date, is still ongoing and threatens to worsen.  The wealth of this nation has been ,and continues to be, plundered.  I did not quite understand Matthew Henry’s use of the word infatuated regarding the nation’s wisdom, so I looked it up.  The definition given was “Possessed by an unreasoning passion or attraction.”  Then I understood how this indeed applied to America in this economic crisis.  Our pride and greed has caused us to be so infatuated–possessed by an unreasoning passion for wealth–that our leaders would make very unwise decisions.  Much of the plundering has been done by the nations corrupt leaders and organizations.  And, the new presidential administration is bringing about even worse plundering as they set about to accomplish their agenda of redistribution of the wealth through a transformation of this nation to socialism.  Also, as God declared to America, the enemies of God that she laid with would laugh and mock her while the poor nations that depended on her would mourn.  This too has happened.

I have emphasised the phrases and have pasted the exact word from the Lord to America in red and my notes in bold in the passages from Obadiah below. 

Obadiah 1:1-16 (KJV)
1 The vision of Obadiah. (Obadiah was a SEER as I am) Thus saith the Lord GOD concerning Edom; We have heard a rumour from the LORD, and an ambassador is sent among the heathen, Arise ye, and let us rise up against her in battle.
2 Behold, I have made thee small among the heathen: thou art greatly despised. (You are a nation despised.)

3 The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, (Your pride and your greed have blinded you to your own disgrace.  You have deceived yourself.)thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?
4 Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, (America is represented by the Eagle…our national bird is the Bald Eagle) and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the LORD.
5 If thieves came to thee, if robbers by night, (how art thou cut off!) would they not have stolen till they had enough? (This signifies the plundering of America’s wealth) if the grapegatherers came to thee, would they not leave some grapes?
6 How are the things of Esau searched out! how are his hidden things sought up!
7 All the men of thy confederacy have brought thee even to the border: the men that were at peace with thee have deceived thee,  and prevailed against thee; they that eat thy bread have laid a wound under thee: (Nations will mourn over you, but those that you laid with will laugh…they will laugh and mock at your downfall.) there is none understanding in him.
8 Shall I not in that day, saith the LORD, even destroy the wise men out of Edom, and understanding out of the mount of Esau? (Many times I have called you to myself to repent and to turn away from the plans of man…but you are rebellious and stiff-necked and will not heed my warnings.  So because you have refused to heed my warnings, I will put scales upon your eyes that you cannot see.  As Samson, judge of Israel who also rebelled against me and lay with the enemy of God, I will remove your strength and cause you to be taken captive…I will blind you so that you too cannot see.  Just as they laughed and scorned him, they too will laugh and scorn you.)
9 And thy mighty men, O Teman, shall be dismayed, to the end that every one of the mount of Esau may be cut off by slaughter.
10 For thy violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off for ever. (And because you have forsaken me, I will write your name in the dust and you will be a shame and disgrace.  You will be no more. )
11 In the day that thou stoodest on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even thou wast as one of them.
12 But thou shouldest not have looked on the day of thy brother in the day that he became a stranger; neither shouldest thou have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither shouldest thou have spoken proudly in the day of distress.
13 Thou shouldest not have entered into the gate of my people in the day of their calamity; yea, thou shouldest not have looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity;
14 Neither shouldest thou have stood in the crossway, to cut off those of his that did escape; neither shouldest thou have delivered up those of his that did remain in the day of distress.
15 For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, (to Israel) it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head. (The US is  guilty of repeatedly pressuring Israel to give away Covenant land to her enemies for the sake of peace.  The US is guilty of attempts at splitting Jerusalem and the land of Israel into two nations.  The US is guilty of trying to force Israel into giving back the land that GOD supernaturally won for them during the miraculous Six Day War.  America’s sin of pride, greed, ungodly covenants with ungodly nations, and spiritual idolatry is enough for her to come under God’s hand of judgment, but our nation’s sin of repeatedly strong-arming Israel into giving away God’s Covenant land to her enemies will cause America to suffer  great judgment from God. This Scripture states that what we have done to Israel will return upon us.  If we cause Israel to be split into, God will split this nation into as well. )

16 For as ye have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the heathen drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been.


FULFILLMENT (Fall of 2008) 09.29.2008

All last week, I kept noticing that the word GREED kept being spoken by many pundits, politicians and the public in laying blame for this economic crisis. On one of these occasions that I heard this word GREED, the Lord reminded me of the word he spoke to me in “Woe To America” on 04.10.2007. I went back and read it again and sought the Lord as to whether this was that judgment. For the first time since this financial crisis began to be made known to the public and the now infamous “BAILOUT” was announced, I sensed that either Congress would not vote to approve this plan, or if passed, it would not stop the downward spiral. Therefore, when the “Bailout” failed to pass I was not surprised. Then, the Market closed and I could not help but notice the significance of what it fell to.


The number “7″ in Scripture represents Gods perfection and refers to the completeness of God.  Almost a year ago, the Lord showed me and confirmed it through my husband that we were to withdraw all of my retirement from the stock market. I do not see this closing number today as being coincidental. I would not be surprised if the coming judgment that the Lord spoke of that would bring America down, causing some nations to wonder why and the wicked nations America has been in bed with to laugh, would indeed be upon the economy of this nation.

According to Evangelist Ed. F. Vallowe in his “Biblical Mathematics…Keys to Scripture Numerics”, save for the number ONE, the number SEVEN is used more than any other number. It is used over 700 times in the Bible and 54 times in the book of Revelation. “It is DONE” is another expression found in connection with the number SEVEN in Revelation 16:17. “And the SEVENTH angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne saying, It is DONE.”

Considering that the number “7″ represents the completeness of God/the perfection of God, how much more emphasis when magnified by being in trilogy of “777″. A negative 777 would cause one to think of completeness in the negative or judgment sense. Again, according to Rev. Vallowe, the number 60 is representative of PRIDE, and the number 8 represents a “NEW BEGINNING or A NEW ORDER OF THINGS”. In seeing this, I could not help but see even more confirmation from the “Woe to America” word of the Lord, for the two things the Lord spoke of as America’s sin was the sin of GREED and PRIDE. If this financial crisis in America is indeed the fulfillment of the judgment of God spoken of in “Woe To America”, we are truly headed for troublesome times.

The “BAILOUT” finally passed, but was just the beginning of the fleecing of U.S. taxpayers. Soon afterward, the nations new President, Barack Hussein Obama, drafted a STIMULUS PLAN for almost a TRILLION DOLLARS that he rushed to get passed. And, the day after signing this pork-filled spending bill, he announces that billions of dollars more need to be spent to help the economy. All of this made the April 10, 2007 Word of the Lord “Woe To America” prophecy look as if this might be the judgment on America that God spoke of. I keep sensing that it is, and that this economic spiral downward will not stop, but bring America to her knees. And, when this happens, all the nations will feel the repercussions from it. Oil rich Arab nations…enemies that we have been in bed with…will continue to laugh at our demise and scorn this nation. Weaker nations that have depended on the value of the dollar will be very subject to having their own economy and possibly their governments collapse. This is already happening in Iceland. Our governments military just announced that the two most vulnerable nations on the brink of governmental collapse is Pakistan (a nation in possession of Nuclear Warheads and ally in our war in that region) and Mexico (our main source of illegal aliens, a major threat to the security of our nation). We’ve had to look to Communist and Muslim controlled nations…enemies of God and nations that truly hate America… as ally’s and lenders to the U.S.  China holds the majority of this debt.  Our dependence on these that hate us is staggering. Many of these danced in the street in celebration of 9/11. I’m sure they’re rejoicing over our economic woes as well.

The people of this nation have overwhelmingly elected leaders who are leading us down a purposely designed path to socialism and communism. The state of our nation is a reflection of the state of the CHURCH. When the majority of the church is asleep in her apathy or in a drunken stupor from drinking from the wells of the world, evil will rule. God is warning His people to WAKE UP! Shake yourselves! REPENT and return to your first love and do the works of righteousness!

UPDATE 03.27.2009

Reading the following news article:


I saw multiple dreams–”Woe To America”, and “Bicycles In The Sky” specifically concerning China.

UPDATE 07.26.2009

I can’t help but notice that those in this nation who have stolen–whether literally through financial greed or in stealing husbands and wives through adultery–have one after another had their sin revealed.  Every week it seems that someone else in high position ends up on the news.  And it isn’t just the wicked unbelievers.  In this number of the fallen are prominent national leaders in government and the church.  The most recent being the local, state and government leaders along with Jewish Rabbi’s caught in a money laundering scheme that crosses not only state lines, but continents–and is reported to include the abuse of the poor and homeless in buying their internal organs and reselling them on the black market.  I believe that God is pulling back the curtains (and the covers) to reveal what has been going on behind closed doors.  And as His Word states–judgment DOES begin at the house of God.  There is such a spirit of covetousness ruling this nation.  The spirit of greed has indeed blinded even those who claim to be of the household of Faith.  These are those times that the Lord speaks of in His Word–the times of the end when men and women are lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God.  May we ALL repent for our selfishness, our greed, our love of the things in this world.  Before we look down our self-righteous spiritual noses at those brothers and sisters in Christ who have fallen into temptation, let us look in the mirror of God’s Word and see who WE really are.  May we pray for the restoration of those who have fallen and may we fall on our faces, not in temptation, but in repentance for our sin and the sins of the household of God in this nation.  Let us cry out for God’s mercy and beg for revival of heart and soul toward God.  Will you be one of the remnant who willingly and humbly falls on your knees before our Holy God in true repentance, or will you be among those that will suffer great loss when God brings great judgment upon this nation.  This nation will be brought to her knees one way or the other.

UPDATE 08.05.2009

I received information recently that led me to the site of Jonathan Cahn, a Messianic (Christian) Rabbi.  (To obtain a list of his CD’s and DVD’s, see the address at the bottom of the home page of Hope of the World.)  What he shares is irrefutable confirmation of not only my 9/11 dream being the judgment of God upon America, but also this Woe To America word of the Lord being fulfilled in the current economic crisis in America and also being judgment from God. I urge you to visit the site and order the two DVD’s– DVD #1416 and the DVD titled The Harbinger II. You can also listen to the audio clips on 9/11 by visiting: http://www.beitsimcha.com/s_ser/Messiah05.asp Visit HERE to see the photos and read about the harbingers revealed to Rabbi Cahn.

The revelation confirming these two events is mind-boggling, and you desperately need to hear it, see it, study it and seek the Lord about it.

UPDATE 08.12.2009

More Confirmation on “Woe To America”

A Christian brother emailed me a few days ago after reading “Woe To America”.  He shared how early in 2008, the Lord gave him a prophetic dream/vision revealing the fall of America’s economy.  Here is what he saw. (Written with permission from Matt Williams.)


You might be interested in a dream I had about 16 months back that included this (what I believe) was a ‘vision’.  I believe it was around March 2008.  2008 was a ‘very’ active year for me spiritually, as the Holy Spirit moved on me like never before in other dreams and visions, while I fervently sought the Lord to heal my dad from a terminal disease (which, HE did!)

THE DREAM/VISION:  I saw a dollar bill floating around in front of me (as if to get my attention for a moment). I remember looking at the dollar and thinking about the power it (its value) represented for America, then I watched as it floated around the world into foreign countries. As it passed by various people of different ethnicity (Asian, Muslim, European, etc), I clearly saw them point and laugh at the dollar and ridicule it. It was a very unsettling dream and I remember how strange it was for me to dream that dream because I have never really been one to get too involved in economics.   The dream was very disturbing to me as I felt the Dollar had life, as a representative of our people, more than merely a piece of paper with a monetary value. I remember, toward the end of the dream as the Dollar completed its journey around the world suffering great ridicule, that it actually looked sad. Immediately, I awoke and dwelt on the meaning of the dream…and knew without a doubt that I had just seen the coming demise of our wealth, visa vie, influence as a super power.

The economic professors, politicians and pundits continue to try to speculate where the “bottom” of this recession is and if we have reached it or when we will get there.  I’m afraid that we haven’t even begun to see the bottom.  I admonish you to seek the Lord concerning your finances.  I admonish you to get out of debt and get your house in order.  Do not trust in the arm of the flesh, but trust in the arm of the Lord our God.  Be wise and walk in understanding by the Spirit of God.

UPDATE 09.22.2009

As I was updating this today, I was wondering exactly when this economic crisis began.  I simply typed in a search for “economic crisis began” and found the following article as the first hit.  As I began to read and saw this author’s statement that it began in April 2004, APRIL jumped out at me for I knew that God spoke this word to me in April 2007—3 years after our government took this action concerning our economy.  I do not know enough about economics or what has taken place in our government to validate this authors remarks, but if true, then it lines up with the timing God chose to reveal it.  Also, I could not help but notice words and phrases concerning our nation that God has spoken to me.  I have emphasized some of these in the excerpts from the post by Citizen Paul below:

WHERE THE ECONOMIC CRISIS BEGAN: How the Securities & Exchange Commission Opened the Floodgates For Abuse in 2004

By Citizen Paul

Oct. 9, 2008 — If you’re still looking for the smoking gun that helps explain why our current financial crisis was allowed to happen, one of the most critical answers can be found in a little-publicized Securities and Exchange Commission ruling made in April of 2004. (emphasis mine) With the unanimous vote of all five members of the S.E.C, an exemption was granted to the investment banks of Wall Street that allowed them to speed down the road to ruin!

Runaway greed was unleashed (emphasis mine) with this little-known ruling. The damage that has been caused is still beyond measure or calculation.

At issue was a long-standing regulation, (the Net Capital Rule), that required investment banks to have a comfortable and responsible cash reserve on hand for the companies to weather downturns in the market and to guard against excessive debt loads.

Early in 2004, the major Wall Street players all put pressure on the S.E.C. to grant them an exemption – an effort led by Henry Paulson, then at Goldman Sachs and now our current Treasury Secretary. These are the same Wall Street players who are now lining up for bailout money, with their friend and former colleague, Paulson, running the 700 billion-dollar show.

No wonder the public is enraged.

Why did these companies bully the S.E.C. for this exemption at that time? The answer is the housing market, which was riding a bubble, held aloft in part because of the sub-prime mortgage market and the new and unregulated mortgage-backed securities that promised to make everyone rich.

Wall Street investment banks desperately wanted in, but this regulation was in their way!

On April 28, 2004,(emphasis mine) after less than an hour’s discussion, the Commissioners caved in to Wall Street and approved the exemption. These institutions would now be set free to use their billions of dollars in reserve – their safety net – to be invested in the reckless and uncertain mortgage-backed securities market. In the process, they would be putting their shareholders at great risk, as well as the stability of the entire industry.

The Commissioners reassured themselves that rules embedded in the exemption would allow them greater access to risky behavior on the part of the major firms. They reassured themselves that these firms would successfully self-regulate themselves – that the executives running these Wall Street firms would never allow their personal greed to steer their companies so deeply into dangerous debt that it would threaten their very survival of the institutions.

Former California representative Christopher Cox, a persistent enemy of regulatory oversight of the financial industry, was appointed by President Bush as the new S.E.C. chairman in 2005. (emphasis mine) One of his first orders of business was to gut the effectiveness of this particular commission as much as he could so his friends on Wall Street could do as they pleased without governmental review.

Deaf, dumb, blind and arrogant, (emphasis mine) Cox said in March: “We have a good deal of comfort about the capital cushions at these firms at the moment.”

Days later, Bear Stearns went belly up, and had to be acquired by JP Morgan Chase, with the assistance of American taxpayers to the tune of 29 billion dollars.

Wall Street firms have been tumbling ever since, weighted down by the gluttonous debt the S.E.C. exemption allowed them to accumulate.


We are in the opening weeks of what most experts now anxiously conclude will be a serious worldwide recession. (emphasis mine) We are once again paying the consequences for what happens when you excessively free up the Market Place so it can inevitably respond to its worst instincts. This time, the price will be steep, painful and prolonged. The monetary price we will have to pay as American citizens will make the Savings & Loan bailout seem like pocket change. It will be a price our children will be paying for a long time as well.

On the international stage, the price goes beyond huge amounts of bailout money or loan guarantees. The price concerns our very identity – our very soul as a nation. (emphasis mine)

For hundreds of millions of our fellow world citizens, America has always stood for integrity and honesty and the rule of common decency. That image, that ideal, has been shattered with this crisis. (emphasis mine)

We are now being seen as a country that tolerated lawlessness and unbridled greed (emphasis mine) at the very top of some of our most critical institutions.

If the leader of the Free World doesn’t live up to its own standards, who will?



I could not help but notice in this article that President Bush appointed Christopher Cox as the SEC Chairman in 2005.  Immediately I knew this would possibly connect this economic crisis to what we caused to happen to Israel in August 2005.  I did a search for Christopher Cox and found that indeed, he was sworn in to this position August 3, 2005—only 12 days prior to Israel’s infamous DISENGAGEMENT—pushed for and endorsed by our president, our government, and the governments of the Middle East “Quartet”.  The number “12” in Biblical Mathematics represents GOVERNMENT.  Truly, our nation is in this economic crisis not only due to our pride and greed, but because of what we have done to the “Apple of God’s Eye”—Israel.  God’s confirming this Word of judgment on America to me through the prophet Obadiah is seen in this.

There is no question in my mind or in my spirit that this economic crisis in America is the WOE TO AMERICA that God spoke prophetically April 10, 2007.  Will God’s people in America recognize it and REPENT?
