As an introduction I would warn any person who would be inclined to belittle or even reject the warnings from God that he or she should realize this is exactly what the people of Israel – God’s own chosen ones – did with the warnings of God in their day and age. So we have no right to fault them for not listening to the warnings of God if we would do exactly the same today versus the warnings He sends not our way. Only reading Ezekiel 7 and other biblical passages one can easily imagine how they, like we today, found it nearly impossible to embrace such words.
“Therefore do not fear, O My servant Jacob,’ says the Lord, ‘nor be dismayed, O Israel; for behold, I will save you from afar, and your seed from the land of their captivity. Jacob shall return, have rest and be quiet, and no one shall make him afraid. For I am with you,’ says the Lord, ‘to save you; though I make a full end of all nations where I have scattered you, yet I will not make a complete end of you. But I will correct you in justice, and will not let you go altogether unpunished” Jeremiah 30:10-11.
“For the nation and kingdom which will not serve you (Israel) shall perish, and those nations shall be utterly ruined” Isaiah 60:12.
“Come near, you nations, to hear; and heed, you people! Let the earth hear, and all that is in it, the world and all things that come forth from it. For the indignation of the Lord is against all nations, and His fury against all their armies; He has utterly destroyed them, He has given them over to the slaughter. For it is the day of the Lord’s vengeance, the year of recompense for the cause of Zion” Isaiah 34:1-2, 8.
Some years ago, a godly woman I knew heard the audible voice of the Lord (actually for the first time in her life). He said: ‘I am leaving the United States and this message will be proclaimed in Jerusalem.’ The event reminded me of what I heard from another servant of the Lord, an elderly pastor who back on April 22, 1988, shared this heartrending prophecy with me, as he had heard the Lord say: ‘I am leaving the nations. For almost 2000 years I have been calling a remnant out of each nation. Now I am returning to Jerusalem. I am building up Zion, for there I will be glorified.’
And as a fine brother recently spoke prophetically: “I am taking Billy Graham home to heaven soon. When you see this, know that my time of grace for the Gentile nations is coming to a close.”
With the situation that we see going on in America, with the president and the administration certainly there are warning signs coming up. On December 28, 2011, I had been seeking the Lord for a word to give to our assembly. I went to bed that night just like any other night. The Lord just really dealt with me in the middle of the night concerning things that were coming. I certainly was shocked when I saw what I saw. In the dream I began to see myself going across America. I was floating, suspended in the air going across America. I had no fear about what I was seeing, then all of a sudden I began to see bombs had landed everywhere. The land was totally destroyed.
It looked like things were totally just wiped off, grass, trees, everything. Everything was gone, burned. There was nothing left. There was nothing on the trees. There was just total disaster. I don’t know if it was everywhere but it was everywhere that I could see, from the point I was at.
When I saw this I saw people standing around their homes and things that were left, holding onto each other. I saw people that lay dead, and I heard the cries of the people saying, “This should never have happened, this should never have happened.”
It was like they just kept saying it over and over again, “This should never have happened, oh Lord, this should never have happened.”
You could tell that life had changed. There was no food. There was no water. I could see babies crying, grownups, men all crying, holding onto their families. They were begging God for mercy. As I moved along I saw people running, looking for their loved ones who were missing and they were completely, completely out of their minds. Insanity had taken over.
I could see people slinging themselves off of bridges, committing suicide. It was just so vivid what I could see.
Then I came over a big city that looked like Columbus, Ohio. That is when all of a sudden I saw mass hysteria, riots and all kinds of things breaking out in the streets of the city. There were windows being busted. There were people just grabbing things left and right. But when I saw it, I did not see them grabbing things like TVs and electronics. They were grabbing food. They were grabbing chips. They were grabbing water. They were grabbing anything they could get in their hands to sustain their lives. It was all about survival. I could tell that this was different from riots that we have seen in the past.
They had come into the stores by the thousands, as many as could come in. I saw them pushing shelves over and pushing electronics aside. They were trying to grab the food, the bread, the cases of water. They were seeking everything they could get for survival.
The rioters were fighting among themselves. I saw one man grab a gun out of his pocket and shoot another man right in the head.
The next part of the dream was the most startling for me. As I left that place, I was going like at the speed of light. I found myself standing on the backside of the White House. As I stood there I looked up. I heard a voice say, “Look up to the Truman balcony.” I knew what a balcony was, but I did not know the balcony had a name. I did not know that there was a Truman balcony until I later shared this with a friend who told me there is a balcony by that name at the White House. In my mind, I believe the Lord identified that to let me know that my dream was from the Lord.
I saw the president of United States, President Obama, standing on the balcony and I saw in his hands a shotgun. All of a sudden, to my left hand side I heard a loud scream, real loud. When I turned my head to see where the scream was coming from I saw flying high in the air was a majestic eagle flying in the air around Washington DC. I knew that scream. I knew it was an eagle.
I saw all of a sudden the president of United States point that shotgun and shot that eagle dead and it fell to the ground. When it did I looked back up at him and he just had a smile on his face like a smirk. And these were the words I heard in the dream, “I’ve done it and I won’t have to deal with this in my administration.”
Then there was dead silence. Then I heard a voice say “Tell the people that this is my will, that this is my hand, this is the hand of the Almighty both upon the generation of the righteous and the cursed. The righteous will find their way and will know what to do. The cursed will wander around with no compass because the cup is full.”
There will be people running around saying we don’t understand why these things are happening, but people need to understand that God has everything under control. The Lord let me know that this is his will. This is his hand upon the righteous and the cursed and we have to accept that.
It amazes me how people have their heads buried in the sand when God is sending so many warnings to people through all kinds of His servants and yet they still will not believe. It is just like in the Bible (with ancient Israel). God sent the prophets and warned them there is going to come destruction, there’s going to come to come trouble, the nations are going to come in and take over. But the people said, “No that’s not going to happen, God is not going to let that happen. God won’t do something like that.” But then it did happen. Then the people went back to God and apologized to him and said we are sorry, but it was too late.
It is like people have fallen asleep. They don’t have a prayer life. They constantly just go on as if nothing is going to happen. They act like life is going to continue on as it is, like America is going to continue on as it is, and there is no urgency. They have their heads buried in the sand, but God is saying “It is time to wake up. Things are getting ready to happen. It is going to move at a fast rate. It is time to get a prayer life back.”
At that point in the dream I knew we were coming to a showdown between good versus evil. I saw people gathering in their homes and there were prayer meetings. People were praying in the spirit. Then I heard the Lord say, “Tell my servants and my handmaidens a special anointing will reside on you in the last days. Hold not back your voices but speak your hearts for out of them come the issues of life. Pick up the mantle of prayer and cover yourselves in a secret place of prayer. Your eyes will be anointed with a special anointing. There will be others who will be blinded to My word. All things will be revealed in their due course. There will be a supernatural wave of the spirit that will come over this generation very soon.”
The final voices are in the land to speak one last time. Yet through the ministries of tapes and DVDs and books that people would have in their possession that God will give them that spiritual food to sustain them during these times that are coming upon us. The Lord said there are harsh days coming.
America’s days are numbered. The handwriting is on the wall. I am telling my church to be prepared and to get their house in order. I am telling them that whatever they need to do for their families do it quickly.
God has spoken these things through various channels, one of which, Steve Hansen, I feel led to include this time (see Link):
I have been sensing for weeks that there is a crippling attack being planned right now against America to be released on American soil. It will be a crippling attack. It will be the release of the floodgate of many more attacks to follow. I have had numerous dreams in the past two months of a pending attack and locations, specific buildings on fire, weapons that will be used, places that will be hit. I have been awoken from my sleep to ambulance sirens, shaking of the ground from explosions and screams of people running in terror. I know it is pending right now. I have no doubt.
I heard the voice of the Lord say, “Even as I sent Jonah to Nineveh, I am sending My Spirit to America with the same message! Time is short! There is pending judgment of the Lord!” God help us! As a watchmen on the wall I am crying out! Please hear! Please! God help us! Where are those who will weep between the porch and altar in true repentance. Stay Your hand God! We turn back to You!
I cannot say this loud enough. There is an urgency! I cannot blow the trumpet loud enough, hard enough or long enough. America is in serious trouble! I am not a doom and gloom person, nor a worrisome person. I am not in a panic, I am not in a fearful state . I am sober. I am humbled before an Almighty Righteous Judge of the earth. The One who holds time in His hand. The One who sets times and seasons in the earth according to His Righteousness, Justice and Holiness. People who know me will affirm that.
Yes, I see the Lord’s glory arising, I see the move of God’s Spirit in the earth that is happening. I see the end-time harvest. I know that Glory will abound in great darkness. I am sounding a trumpet to my nation… the Lord is looking for true repentance for what is happening in our nation quickly, or He will judge us rightly and very soon. He has set the time clock of pending judgment in motion.
There is a sound of repentance He is looking for! There really isn’t much time left for us to respond. God help us! May the cry of repentance and heart-cry of true humility He is looking for be released in our churches, Sunday/ Saturday/ Wed/ Etc. services, home groups, houses of prayer, government halls, prayer gatherings, for national repentance. Lord please let our hearts not stay hard, let us quickly become sober from our drunkenness on self-indulgence and entertainment and quickly awaken our hearts to repentance! Please hear God’s heart in this. He wants us to return to Him as a nation and to do it rightly and quickly.
As one wrote to me in response:
This must be what David Wilkerson saw, when he warned that major cities all across America will experience riots and blazing … and there will be 1000 fires burning in New York..
(This above is an alternate video as original is not now available.)
In 1984, Dimitru Duduman, a Romaninan pastor, who was sent to America to warn the people that major cities will go up in flames.
Repentance is the only way to avert disaster.
May G-D help us all. L.I.
And as Jake Novak with CNBC wrote:
There is nothing more dangerous than a wounded animal. Vladimir Putin is wounded – and he’s not known for holding back.
As Zephaniah indeed prophesies:
“Gather yourselves together, yes, gather together, O shameful nation, before the decree is issued, or the day passes like chaff, before the Lord’s fierce anger comes upon you, before the day of the Lord’s anger comes upon you! Seek the Lord, all you meek of the earth, who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger” Zephaniah 2:1-3.
May this all lead us to true repentance, supplication and utter humility before a mighty God, who was willing to save Nineveh because of their repentance even though He had already determined to destroy her, as we will soon enter a new year of opportunity to love the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul and strength! May in that way this coming New Year be a blessed one, I pray.
