2012 Thoughts and Omens


This past year of 2012 has been a strange and troublesome one for many.

Mourners gather to grieve loss of Sandy Hook victims

Even the usual merriment scheduled for the Christmas season was blighted by grief (Sandy Hook) and disaster (repeated flooding and gales in Europe and tornadoes and snow in the States ).

Not many months before, there was another “sandy” tragedy when that Hurricane devastated portions of the Caribbean and the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States during late October 2012.

Add to that the unusual weather all year – droughts, then floods – plus failing crops, continuing violence in the Middle East including the death of four Americans in Benghazi, and this year’s spike in annual epidemics…

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.

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.

So, when the guy who made the 2,000 sandwiches on Sept. 10 warns us: “AN EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN,” I think we would do well to heed it. And follow the words Wilkerson quotes from the prophet Jeremiah and “turn back each of you from your evil way, and reform your ways and deeds.”
