I am compelled by the Holy Spirit to send out an urgent message to all on our mailing list, and to friends and to bishops we have met all over the world.
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 ten 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
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
“If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous
do?” (v. 3).
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
WHAT SHALL THE RIGHTEOUS DO? WHAT ABOUT GOD’S
First, I give you a practical word I received for my own
direction. If possible lay in store a thirty-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.
As for our spiritual
reaction, we have but two options. This is outlined in Psalm 11. We “flee like a
bird to a mountain.” Or, as David says, “He fixed his eyes on the Lord on his
throne in heaven—his eyes beholding, his eyelids testing the sons of men” (v.
4). “In the Lord I take refuge” (v. 1).
I will say to my soul: No need to
run...no need to hide. This is God’s righteous work. 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.
God bless and keep
