The Prospect of a Pandemic


Four Horsemen

Sometime around the tragedy that was 9/11, I started work on a series about the Four Seals of Revelation Chapter Six. Little did I know that events would subsequently occur that seemed to add confirmation upon confirmation that the four seals were actually being loosed in our day.

Today I have updated the series, in particular the article on the Fourth Seal, to cover the news of a disease that is now affecting most of the world – the coronavirus known as COVID-19.

For those of you not familiar with the articles, here are my website links:

Please bear in mind that most of this series of articles was written many years ago.  I have made some guesses, based on prophecy and known events, especially with regard to Israel. We need to keep watching and praying because there may be much more to come – God willing!

Wake Up People!!


(This article from the excellent website of Berit Kjos.)

As you read this, the United States is experiencing the worst drought it has seen since the Dust Bowl days of the 1930s.  As you read this, nearly half of all corn crops in the United States are in “poor” or “very poor” condition.  As you read this, 38 major wildfires are ripping across the central and western United States.

The brutal wildfires in Oklahoma have been so bad that they have made national headlines.  The price of corn has hit a brand new record high this summer and so has the price of soybeans.  More than half of all the counties in this country have been declared to be “natural disaster areas” by the U.S. Department of Agriculture at this point.  Things are so bad for ranchers that the CEO of Smithfield Foods is projecting that meat prices will rise by “significant double digits” in the months ahead.

What WERE they THINKING?


It seems like mankind is not prepared to wait until the prophesied deadly plague hits the earth. They are hurrying doomsday by creating it themselves.

The potential for this super-virus to get “out in the wild” and kill millions is worrying to say the least! Plus, it’s not that difficult for a competent scientist employed by a terrorist group to turn this into the next bio-weapon. To repeat the header: what WERE they THINKING?

A super-strain of bird flu that could infect and wipe out millions has been developed in a laboratory.

Dutch scientists who created the ‘Armageddon virus’ say it is ‘probably one of the most dangerous viruses you can make’. Their research focused on what it took to convert bird flu – which can kill more than half of those infected but does not spread easily – into a highly contagious virus.

They said this knowledge would be vital for the development of vaccines and drugs to prevent a possible pandemic. But others argue the virus should never have been created – and warn the potential if it escaped from the lab is ‘staggering’. There are also fears the recipe will be seized on by terrorists looking for a biological weapon.

The U.S. government is so concerned that its advisers are trying to block the details of the virus’s manufacture from being published.

National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity chairman Paul Kiem, an anthrax expert, said: ‘I can’t think of another pathogenic organism that is as scary as this one. I don’t think anthrax is scary at all compared to this.’

However, others pointed out that similar fears – raised six years ago when another team of scientists recreated the Spanish flu virus that killed up to 50million in 1918 – proved groundless. The latest controversy surrounds the H5N1 bird flu virus. In 2005, there were warnings of a potential bird flu global pandemic which would kill hundreds of millions.

Of the 573 people that have caught the bug so far worldwide, 336 have died. However, the germ’s inability to spread easily from person to person means the predicted pandemic has never materialised. Now, scientists at the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam have created a H5N1 bird flu that spreads as easily as winter flu.

In experiments on ferrets – whose flu symptoms are most like humans’ – just five mutations in two key genes turned the ‘normal’ bird flu into a highly contagious, super-spreader. The scientist behind the project, Ron Fouchier, said: ‘We now know which mutations to watch for in the case of an outbreak and we can stop the outbreak before it is too late.’

A university spokesman said: ‘If this type of research is carried out under maximum safety conditions, the benefits are greater than the risks.’
But Donald Henderson, an expert in biosecurity who spearheaded the worldwide drive to eradicate smallpox, told New Scientist magazine if a highly contagious virus with a 50 per cent kill rate got loose, ‘a catastrophe would result’.

Last night, the journal Science said the U.S. government’s request to publish only an abbreviated version of Dr Fouchier’s work was being taken very seriously.

UK Riots: What are the underlying causes?


It’s hard to know what to say when for three days and nights your cities have been under siege, set on fire and ransacked.

We watch the news with a sense of disbelief but not surprise. Many of us had said “if this goes on, there will be rioting in the streets”. But we meant that the poor, the oppressed, the angry, and those treated cruelly and unjustly would hit back with a protest so strong that this country would reel from it.

In the event, the rioting was even worse because it was the result, not of protest, nor in support of basic human rights, but a selfish greedy and criminal desire to loot and burn for the sake of it, just because they can.

The bible said “lawlessness shall increase” and it is. It said this:
2 Tim 3:1-5

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come, for people will be…
lovers of themselves
lovers of money
boasters
proud
blasphemers
disobedient to parents
unthankful
unholy
unloving
unforgiving
slanderers
without self-control
brutal
despisers of good
traitors
headstrong
haughty
lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God

This we see all around us, growing worse by the day.

There has always been selfishness and lawlessness. But throughout history that evil was contained and restricted by physical distance and location, by lack of speedy communication, and by the unavailably of graphic media, as well as the inclination of most people to be law-abiding and moral. All that has been swept away.

Today we see gangs organised via Twitter and Blackberry messaging, being directed round the streets by mobile phones.

Today we see the result of that mayhem instantly via a live feed on TV, encouraging others to go out and do the same thing the next day.

But given all that is true, what are some of the recent causes underlying the situation we are witnessing of rampant uncontrolled lawlessness roaming our streets? It’s not hard to identify because these are issues that are being discussed in every gathering of normal people (but somehow not in the corridors of power, where a corporate insanity prevails.)

Education

For many years the education system has been infiltrated by left-wing, liberal, and fanciful new-world ideas that have removed discipline and straightforward studying of the facts, and replaced them with “yuman rights”, and propaganda for the cause. Instead of educating children, they introduced them to the idea that anything goes, and nobody must complain. We ended up with generations of illiterate yobs whose only aim in life is to take from society and escape all consequences.

Justice

Whether or not you believe in the death penalty for murder, it was a turning point for this country when we decided to imprison killers instead. It was the leading edge of another liberal agenda to see criminals as “victims of society” instead of those who needed punishment. Year by year we have watched the justice system strain and break. Shorter sentences, more lenient courts, fewer people arrested, while crime escalated at an alarming rate. The police are hogtied by nit-picking rules and regulations that forbid them to violate anybody’s “rights” (apart from the victims of crime, naturally). Add to this the prevailing attitude of the authorities that it’s illegal to defend yourself or (as they call it) “take the law into your own hands” and you have the disgraceful situation of innocent citizens brought to court for trying to defend their own property or lives!

Drugs and Alcohol

People fuelled by these are much more likely to be irrational and desperate. Too much crime is drug-related. Yet alcohol continues to be dirt cheap, and the licensing hours have been extended instead of cut. So unable are the authorities to deal with the drug problem that their recently proposed “answer” was just to make personal drug use legal because it’s impossible to stop it now. Yet people out of their heads on drugs and drink are frequently violent and abusive, stealing to support their habit, unable to work, ill and using up NHS resources, not to speak of the damage they do to their own and their family’s lives. (Much of what was stolen in the rioting was alcohol.)

Video games and computers

This is another huge area of concern. Very young children are getting access to the internet, seeing and involving themselves in things that scar their minds and corrupt their spirits. Social Networking introduces them to people they would not normally have known, and outside of all parental control. Peer-pressure means they will attempt things against their better judgement. Video games are violent and horrific, teaching them to kill and steal without mercy and without restraint. What they see informs their lives and educates them to believe in a world where everything is up for grabs, without consequences.

Media

Music too, and TV programming, has become more and more sexually explicit and foul in every way. Censorship seems non-existent. Storylines are about all about getting your own way, no matter what. Crime is fun, and clever. Younger and younger children are reading magazines and other media that pushes them to conform to a sexualized and greedy lifestyle when they are too young to make adult decisions about the need for restraint.

Breakdown of the family, no discipline

At the same time, as we all know, the family has crumbled apart. With the open encouragement of successive Governments, marriage has been abandoned in favour of casual relationships, children being born to multiple partners, men drifting from one woman to the next, women raising several non-related children alone… meaning that the all-important input of a strong and reliable father-figure is missing. The only parenting that the children understand is getting their wants supplied. They witness arguments, abandonment and strife all their lives and conclude that there is nothing stable or good about the human experience. It’s “every man for himself”.

No incentive

One strong incentive in life is to do better than those around you, gain a good education and train for a career that will reward you and your family in later life. However, that aim has been removed from the lives of many ordinary people. Much schooling is a joke and even now children leave without knowing how to write or speak correctly, and unable to do basic sums. They know nothing about history or geography and even less about science. Then when they try to go on to university they either drop out, unable to face the challenge of a good education, or else they are unable to attend in the first place due to cost. The only jobs they can get (if any at all) are menial and badly-paid. If despite all this they enter a profession that provides a good salary they are stung by the various taxes and disincentives this country has always provided to punish those who do well. Talent and Invention are shipped off to countries who know how to reward them, while we struggle on with a dumbed-down lack-lustre population that only knows how to toe the line.

No good role-models

Another incentive used to be the role-models people encountered while growing up. Now, many role-models such as footballers, rock stars and actors are famous for being loud-mouthed, drunken, adulterous and ignorant. It’s the evil of society that is paraded in the press and applauded, and made into entertainment. It is greed, selfishness, infidelity, pride, anger and hatred of religion that people see and hear. They conclude “this is how life is lived, this is how I should be.”

Hatred of God

The prevailing attitude of the media today is “bash the bible”. No holds barred in portraying Christians as ignorant depraved fools who deserve no consideration from society. Every sinew is stretched out to find yet another way to disprove the Christian truths, whether in the Press, on TV or just in private conversations.

Children may not have been taught anything about history, but if any conversation arises with a religious element they suddenly “know” all about the bible, how contradictory and “repressive” it is (even though they have never seen, let alone read, one.) It seems as if TV producers work to a golden rule that Christians must appear in every drama and cartoon, to be mocked and resented and shown up as corrupt and self-serving idiots.

It’s no wonder churches are empty and Christianity has such a bad name. But along with that goes the intense fear of “judgement” that people instinctively feel! Anyone who is Christian knows the knee-jerk response “how dare you judge me?” when anything about God is mentioned.

Deep levels of sin have produced a bad conscience in society, but instead of owning up to sin people would rather do away with God, so as to avoid unpleasantness. When they are told by everything they hear and see that God is judgemental and repressive, they join in the chorus, rejoicing in their freedom to do as they please.

The result can be seen on the TV news today.

When a child as young as 10 gets a message from a gang of friends who say they are going into the city to smash and burn shops and loot whatever they can carry, what is there from the list above to prevent him saying “I’m there.”

Is there any parental disapproval? NO! His Mum is probably too busy watching TV with her new boyfriend, and even if she stands in his way, she’ll be told to F-Off.

Is there any fear of the police or the legal system? NO! Even if by bad luck he was arrested he wouldn’t be charged, and would be let back home with nothing more than a caution. Then he’d be even more proud of his status in the gang!

Is there any personal inclination to avoid criminal behaviour? NO! “Everybody else is doing it” and the more they succeed the better they feel. Everything he watches and everyone he admires spurs him on, rather than the opposite.

Is there any reason to resist? NO! Because he “needs” to “have things” like the rest of the world, and his Mum won’t buy them. He wants new trainers, and the clothes that his friends wear, and all those “must-have” electronic gadgets, and the drink that dulls his unhappy memories, and he knows he’ll never be able to have them without stealing. So why not? Society “owes him”! “THEY” have things, so why shouldn’t he?

And I must say, when big businesses, banks, government departments, celebrities, and the high-fliers in this country are so dismissively arrogant about their billions of ill-gotten gains, while others have nothing, it’s not surprising there is a deep resentment amongst ordinary people!

Finally, is there any fear of the consequences? NO! From whom could there be consequences? His mother doesn’t care that much, his friends already approve, his school won’t intervene and to be sure he won’t be hearing anything about God and the Ten Commandments anytime soon.

Harold Camping responsible for massacre of Christians in Vietnam


NOTE: This slaughter is confirmed by reports from International Christian Concern (‘persecution.org’) and other sources. Harold Camping’s false prophecy from earlier this year caused hundreds of Hmong people to be slaughtered. Below is a new report from Jacob Prasch in the actual region describing how it happened:

FALSE PROPHECY Causes HUNDREDS KILLED
-by Jacob Prasch.

As most of you are aware I am at this moment in North Vietnam helping the much persecuted Hmong people of the tribal mountain areas.

After listening to a translation of Camping’s prediction 7,000 of these people (known in The West as Montagnards) gathered on a mountain praising God – their suffering at the hands of the Communist regime was supposedly about to end because Jesus was returning that day in May to establish a new kingdom.

The police and military police slaughtered many of them at gunpoint beheading two pastors. Others were arrested. I am told by Hmong pastors that so many were shot dead that they were buried in mass graves bulldozed over in an episode that I read about in Britain but did not understand the magnitude of until I got here. I am now trying to clean up the mess at the request of local Hmong leaders.

I spoke to a secret convocation of Hmong pastors only yesterday who came to Hanoi, explaining to them about false prophets and false teachers.

Due to a combination of poverty, ignorance, and persecution these poor Christians don’t understand much so they believed Camping’s shortwave broadcast which is how most get their teaching in a certain village area with heavy persecution. Their families don’t know if their missing loved ones are among the many shot dead, among those arrested and imprisoned, or among those from the 7,000 hiding in the jungle.

I am not the nicest guy in the world let alone the best Christian and I can’t pretend to be. But anyone who had to deal with the confusion and devastation I am dealing with now due to Harold Camping would also blow their top. These people already suffering for their faith in Jesus had it bad enough. They are not like the undiscerning whackos in The West who should have known Camping was a crackpot and a proven false prophet & false teacher.
This is a persecuted church who just had no means to know any different. This is why I get angry at those who deceive the Body of Christ and why I warn so much about false teachers and false prophets. It may be an extreme case but these people, some of them children, were shot dead. Of course we can blame Satan and the communists but their blood is on the hands of Harold Camping and his Family radio. Women without husbands, children without parents, husbands without wives – thank you Family Radio; thank you Harold Camping.

Frankly, this has been a rough week for me. One of the worst I ever had. I am up to my eyeballs in muck trying to explain to tribal pastors how to explain to their people why their families were massacred needlessly and trying to advise them how to potect their flocks from such wolves in the future…

The anguish of the Hmong folk took my concentration off of my own problems… because their problems are so much greater after what they refer to as ‘the mountain massacre’ due to Harold Camping.

Please pray for these people and the work of Moriel Asia branch here among the Hmong. We are trying to get 5,000 outlawed Hmong Bibles printed or smuggled in via Laos.

Where does it end?  These people are suffering terribly while Camping is still in business in Oakland, California – as usual telling more lies…  Come Lord Jesus.

Tell South Dakota to Prepare!


In the spirit of the age, (which is endless speculation about the signs of the times), I decided to make this map and tell you about the data within it. As you know, I have a habit of putting my tongue firmly in my cheek over these things.

Is there a serious point to be made – I don’t really know. The only really SERIOUS worry is that Christians fall into the trap that Jesus warned of. It was the very first warning he made when talking about the endtimes, that is, “Take heed that you are not deceived”.

Matt 24:4-14 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is NOT YET. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and THEN the end will come.

False prophets will abound (like Harold Camping) who will even seduce the elect, and every kitchen table prediction will take on deep meaning when people start to panic about the state of the world, and all the signs we daily see. The more that “lawlessness abounds” the more troubled people will be, and the more inclined to grasp at straws.

Yes, there ARE signs! But as far as I’m concerned all of them go on the back burner until I know something definite from God, and it lines up with scripture. For instance, the end cannot come until certain things happen, such as the greatest apostasy ever known, when “the love of many grows cold”.

2 Thess 2:2-4 “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first”

So then – curious earthquake facts:  three recent large earthquakes have struck around the “ring of fire” marking three points on a sort of rectangle on the map. Completing that rectangle with a fourth earthquake would point towards the centre of the United States.

As you see from the map (which is no more than a bit of fun with data really) if you calculate the coordinates then you end up with the 4th point being in South Dakota. The nearest town is Lemmon (so perhaps this data is a bit of a lemon as the Brits would say.)

Here’s another fact, if you count the days between the earthquakes so far it’s 188 days between the one in Chile and the one in Christchurch; and its 188 days between Christchurch and Japan – curious, eh?

So, now we can tell the good folks of South Dakota to expect another huge earthquake 188 days from the one in Japan, which is 15th September. Hmmm. There’s NEVER been an earthquake there so that makes it all the more certain I think. (joking.)

Finally let’s look at the names of the earthquake areas for another curiousity.

The first one in Chile was at Chillan (“where the sun sits”) and Concepcion both of which suggest a beginning; the second earthquake was at Christchurch, specifically a place called Charing Cross – which suggests a religious connection, Christ’s Church and “broken cross” or “bent cross” from ‘Cerring’, an Anglo-Saxon word meaning bend.

The third earthquake was near Sendai which has the meaning in Japanese of “eternity”, specifically a “thousand generations”.

The distance between each event was roughly five and a half to six thousand miles. So far then, in symbolic terms, we have had from the Beginning to Christ’s Church and from Christ’s Church to Eternity, six thousand years.

I’m tempted to say the next earthquake will be in Los Angeles (the angels) because that is what comes after eternity. It’s a distance from Sendai Japan of about 5331 miles.

Or maybe nothing will happen at all. More likely.

I will now add one more factoid to the mix. The next 188 days takes us up to Rosh Hashanah, the start of the next Jewish year. It also takes us to the full moon and the Autumn Equinox.

15th September 188 days since Japanese earthquake.
23rd Sep = full moon and equinox.
29th sep Rosh Hashanah, Jewish New Year

However, a significant and prophetic event (if it actually happens) is on 20th Sept when the Palestinians’ bid to join the UN as a sovereign nation, capital city East Jerusalem, is voted in the UN.

Everything these days is invested with great meaning. I’m not disbelieving nor disrespectful of signs if they are genuine, but I advise great caution until the truth is known.

David Wilkerson’s last post: “it was no accident”.


WHEN ALL MEANS FAIL by David Wilkerson | April 27, 2011 (the same day he died in a tragic head-on collision)

To believe when all means fail is exceedingly pleasing to God and is most acceptable. Jesus said to Thomas, “You have believed because you have seen, but blessed are those that do believe and have not seen” (John 20:29).

Blessed are those who believe when there is no evidence of an answer to prayer—who trust beyond hope when all means have failed. Someone has come to the place of hopelessness—the end of hope—the end of all means.

A loved one is facing death and doctors give no hope. Death seems inevitable. Hope is gone. The miracle prayed for is not happening. That is when Satan’s hordes come to attack your mind with fear, anger, overwhelming questions: “Where is your God now? You prayed until you had no tears left. You fasted. You stood on promises. You trusted.”

Blasphemous thoughts will be injected into your mind: “Prayer failed. Faith failed. Don’t quit on God—just do not trust him anymore. It doesn’t pay!” Even questioning God’s existence will be injected into your mind. These have been the devices of Satan for centuries.

Some of the godliest men and women who ever lived were under such demonic attacks.

More earthquakes on the way?


Former USGS Geologist Jim Berkland suggests there are more earthquakes to come around the Pacific “Ring of Fire” and if the progression holds to its course, America is next.

See the Fox News interview and read the transcript HERE.

Fish deaths are a clue. There have been massive amounts of fish dying and being washed ashore, and historically this has been associated with changes in the earth’s magnetic field; it also happened just before major earthquakes.

The main points in the interview are that the moon is closer to the earth on 16th March than in the last 20 years, exerting more tidal pressure on the earth, right at the time of the Spring Equinox which also contributes tension.

All this helps to release the strain that is building up in techtonic plates and may spark off earthquakes. There is what he calls a “top seismic window” for events between 19-26th this month. This is partly why Geologists had warned about the Japan earthquake.

There is an order and continuity to earthquakes that should be heeded. The massive fish kills at Redondo beach, Mexico and other places points to earth changes that may precede an earthquake.

Jim Berkland says “I used to just scoff at these kinds of things, because I was a mainstream geologist, until I found out that earthquakes are fitting a pattern. The big earthquake in the Indian Ocean followed massive beachings of whales in New Zealand and Australia and Tasmania. And then within couple of days, they had a 8.3 in south of New Zealand, and then came the 9.1 in the Indian Ocean, with the big tsunami, on the very day of the full moon. The previous big quake and tsunami was in Alaska, which is a 9.2 magnitude event, on the day off the full moon, on the 27th of March”.

As Christians we know that everything is according to God’s plan and therefore, even if some things seem inevitable they need not happen. Let us pray for mercy and “help in time of need”.

Ditch Nuclear Power? You need to see this!


The green campaign group ‘Friends of the Earth’ have said the UK must now re-assess its plans to build more nuclear reactors. They are needed to combat the UK’s growing energy shortfall, since the ludicrously inefficient and expensive wind turbines cannot ever meet our needs.

But now Japan’s nuclear disaster has led to a siren wail of “I-told-you-so” from the world’s greenies. Before you agree with them you should see these two videos.

The Rock that does not shake


Hearing and seeing the news this morning, I don’t want to be trivial or preachy. I’m thinking on a broad scale this morning, worldwide. Consider not just the Japanese earthquake but other countries that will now be overshadowed in the news and perhaps forgotten.

Let’s not forget the Christians under pressure in Cairo, the people of Lybia and all the Middle East including Israel, and the untold suffering of other people around this dying world – all of whom are known to God.

I am just posting this song dedicated to those who need it. To those who love the Lord and are wondering what’s happening to this world; to those who do not know the Lord and are confused; to those who are in fear, suffering or loss.

It isnt trite to say that GOD is our only ROCK and hiding place. Run to him.

Christ’s Church Shaken??


Like everybody else, I’m shocked by the events in Christchurch New Zealand. Maybe I should just put it down to random disasters, having no spiritual significance, but somehow I cannot. New Zealand and also Australia seem to be suffering one disaster after another – can we forget the 29 miners who died underground in November last year? [Yet in Chile, 33 were rescued after a long battle to reach them.] This photo of the landmark Christchurch Cathedral in ruins seems to say something to us all – but exactly what?

Many have pointed out the coincidence of the city’s name: Christchurch. Is God finally saying “enough!”  to the goings-on inside many charismatic, pentecostal AND episcopalian churches? I know nothing about the condition of the churches of New Zealand, but I find it hard to believe they are in the right place with God. After all, Christchurch was shaken by an even larger earthquake in September 2010 but nobody was killed and the church buildings survived. Afterwards, Andrew Strom’s ministry tried to organise a public thanksgiving there with worship and praise to God for his mercy but despite the encouragement and support of the local councils, radio stations  and other secular bodies, the churches flatly refused to cooperate.

David Wilkerson Warning


by Janet Porter of “Faith2Action”

When I was a kid, I read about David Wilkerson who took to Gospel to the gangs of New York. I even saw the movie “The Cross and the Switchblade” that was made about him. Many know about that, but most don’t know what happened in his church just eight years ago.

In the fall of 2001, Pastor David Wilkerson, of Times Square Church in New York City, was warned by God that a calamity was coming. For six weeks they felt an intense burden and enormous heaviness. A critical need for intercession was so profound that Pastor Wilkerson canceled everything on the church calendar – mission’s conferences, youth events and every guest speaker.

For six weeks, there wasn’t a sermon. Instead, there was intercession for our nation with weeping and repentance. They knew something was coming and that something was bad. And that something was soon. So they prayed. And prayed … and prayed.

Then Wilkerson felt God telling him something that seemed rather bizarre. He felt God telling him to make sandwiches – lots of sandwiches. What were they for? Who would eat them? That part wasn’t clear, but his church did what they believed God was telling them anyway.

And on the 10th of September they stayed up all night making hundreds and hundreds of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. By morning they had about 2,000 sandwiches. At 8:46 a.m. the first plane hit the World Trade Center and Times Square Church was ready to feed and minister to rescue workers and victims of our nation’s worst attack.

Making sandwiches all night is a strange thing to do. If someone told me to stay up all night making sandwiches, I’d probably tell them they were crazy. But if David Wilkerson says he’s heard something from God today, I think we’d be crazy not to listen.

He now says he feels the same thing he felt leading up to the attack by radical Islam. In an “URGENT MESSAGE” dated March 7, 2009, Wilkerson said:
AN EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. IT IS GOING TO BE SO FRIGHTENING, WE ARE ALL GOING TO TREMBLE – EVEN THE GODLIEST AMONG US.

For 10 years I have been warning about a thousand fires coming to New York City. It will engulf the whole megaplex, including areas of New Jersey and Connecticut. Major cities all across America will experience riots and blazing fires – such as we saw in Watts, Los Angeles, years ago.

There will be riots and fires in cities worldwide. There will be looting – including Times Square, New York City. What we are experiencing now is not a recession, not even a depression. We are under God’s wrath. In Psalm 11 it is written:

… God is judging the raging sins of America and the nations. He is destroying the secular foundations.

The prophet Jeremiah pleaded with wicked Israel, “God is fashioning a calamity against you and devising a plan against you. Oh, turn back each of you from your evil way, and reform your ways and deeds. But they will say, It’s hopeless! For we are going to follow our own plans, and each of us will act according to the stubbornness of his evil heart” (Jeremiah 18:11-12).

In Psalm 11:6, David warns, “Upon the wicked he will rain snares (coals of fire) … fire … burning wind … will be the portion of their cup.” Why? David answered, “Because the Lord is righteous” (v. 7). This is a righteous judgment – just as in the judgments of Sodom and in Noah’s generation.

WHAT SHALL THE RIGHTEOUS DO? WHAT ABOUT GOD’S PEOPLE?

First, I give you a practical word I received for my own direction. If possible lay in store a 30-day supply of non-perishable food, toiletries and other essentials. In major cities, grocery stores are emptied in an hour at the sign of an impending disaster.

… I will behold our Lord on his throne, with his eye of tender, loving kindness watching over every step I take – trusting that he will deliver his people even through floods, fires, calamities, tests, trials of all kinds.

Note: I do not know when these things will come to pass, but I know it is not far off. I have unburdened my soul to you. Do with the message as you choose.

Warren Buffett has said that our economy has “fallen off a cliff.” With the election of the most pro-abortion president (and Congress) in history, there’s no question that we deserve God’s judgment.

Just yesterday, Barack Obama signed an executive order to use children for spare parts. So much for defending the “least of these,” as he so often quoted during his campaign. Cannibalizing the weak to help the strong. And by the way, don’t believe everything you hear in the news – Obama didn’t say he was against cloning. He said he was against “reproductive” cloning. Killing a new life after cloning one is another matter entirely: the cowardice of Obama’s “Brave New World.”

The bottom line is that we are economically and morally bankrupt. And it’s reported that Iran now has all they need to build nukes.
