Israel became a nation in 1948. Bible scholars have long held the view that this event is described in the parable of the fig tree (Matthew 24:32-35). We are told by Christ to recognize this event as a key sign that we are getting closer to His return. In 1967 Israel won the Six Day War and took control over the city of Jerusalem. Some theologians believe that Jesus will return before the death of all those born in the generation of 1967 all die (Luke 21:24).
I believe that the world is heading toward unparalleled disaster with millions and eventually billions of people dead. These apocalyptic events will set the stage for a one world government that will control the human race for the sake of peace, unity and survival, or so it will be represented. This justification will be used to urge the people of the world to cooperate with this government, but it will actually dissolve their national sovereignty.
On December 24, 1995, I received a prophecy for America. This warning message is primarily for the American church who call themselves “born again”, as well as the society of the United States. The full 1995 prophecy is available on the WMI website, and my personal interpretation of it is as follows:
The Lord is saying that he will exhort the American people to look to him. He will cause an incident to happen in America so great that it will get their attention. This could possibly be through the weather, food, disease, economy (although it would have to be to a much greater degree than we have yet experienced), or nuclear war at a national level.
God is saying that the people of America are guilty of intense pride, intense self-exaltation and self-satisfaction. In all areas of life in America, including the Church, most of the people are occupied with pleasing themselves.
The leaders in America, even in the Church for the most part, are filled with self-glorification and self-attainment. Many of their leaders not only have a gluttonous appetite for glory and “the things of the world,” but some are guilty of immorality and amorality. Many church leaders no longer know right from wrong. Many are guilty of lying, cheating, fornication and adultery. Because so many of the pastors have become amoral and are no longer either capable or bold enough to counsel truth, the American people are turned over to the philosophies of evil men and satanic spirits. The psychic, the philosopher, the professor, and even eastern religions take the place of the truth of Jesus Christ that should be taught fundamentally, doctrinally sound and without error. However, the message is not popular with people of America, nor with many deceived pastors within the Church. Consequently, the people of America turn to the lies of the cult and occult because a true servant of the Lord is not popular even within his own denomination. They dance to the fiddle of the majority who are intrigued by the psychics’ predictions, but are deaf to the words and warnings of a true prophet.
Thus, the people of America and members of the church are conned by false doctrine. They are inept to scripturally and spiritually deal with the deceptions, lies, lusts, lifestyles, values, behaviors, sins and spirits that are in our society and church.
God is saying that he will bring down (humble, shame) the American people, including many church leaders. Many people in America and members of churches feel immune from the catastrophes that have struck other countries such as war, famine, disease, and persecution. God is warning that the people, both in society and the Church, will not escape his dealings with them. There are hard times ahead for both the Church and people of America. Great trouble, plagues and persecution lie ahead. This judgment is needed out of God’s deep eternal love to give every opportunity for people to repent and prepare themselves for the coming of the Lord.
When there is a lack of righteousness and holiness in peoples’ lives, they compromise. They are afraid to speak the truth to others. They lie and give excuses for their unfaithfulness by saying they do not want to hurt people’s feelings. You can say it another way, but the truth is, their own relationship with God is lacking. In reality, they do not have the spiritual strength to obey the spirit; nor are they led by the Spirit, but by their own understanding, mentality and flesh. They find it difficult to give godly counsel because, according to his Word, they do not have an intimate relationship with the Author of Truth. Thus, they do not know what the truth is, or if they do, they do not have the spirit (strength) to do or say what he asks of them.
The majority of the Church in America lacks holiness and righteousness. God must and will prepare them for his return. For he will not allow his New Jerusalem to be polluted, corrupt, diseased, poverty stricken, ruled by the vain, immoral or amoral, again. Before his final judgment when people are sentenced to eternal separation or eternal life with him in the New Jerusalem, Jesus will give more opportunity for a change of heart. The American “born again Christian” will be chastened by the Lord and tried by the fire. God will force events to deal with their spiritually weak condition until the American Christian (true believer) will look to the Lord for their strength and call upon the Lord earnestly, not out of some mythical explanation or prayer. Through the changing events and new laws in society, the American believer will be forced of God to take his stand on spiritual and moral truths until they are hated and persecuted by society. The American Christian will not escape having to take his stand and position in the Lord!
Wrong doctrine taught by denominations and pastors will be exposed by time itself, by the Holy Spirit, by the Scriptures, which will finally be studied studiously by the elect instead of just accepted from the pulpit. Many large churches, denominations, church leaders and pastors will fall. They will be rejected both by society and by the believer, for their vain lifestyle and teaching of God’s Word. Eventually all godly organized churches and ministries will be shut down as persecution of the true believer takes its full course. As believers have suffered in many countries throughout the world for their faith, so many will now suffer in America.
The Lord Jesus is warning the American Christians that he is preparing to return to earth. Before he returns, he will give more opportunities for both the unbeliever and believer to prepare for his coming. Great trouble will fall on America along with a major crisis that will change the American lifestyle. He warns that the born again believer will also be challenged by the Lord through the change of events in American lifestyle, calamities and persecution. But through it all the true Church will become holy without spot or wrinkle and learn to trust in Jesus. Amen and amen!
To read the 1995 prophecy in its entirety, please refer to my web site. (Click on the map of America and then the US flag).
As we discussed in Part 1 of this article series, events are certainly taking place that are shaking the nation. The New York Twin Towers Attack; The Katrina Natural Disaster; The Stock Market Economic Meltdown, and much more (see my website for complete news coverage of these and other incidents). All these major events indicate that God is increasing the severity of problems upon America, which will continue to escalate so that the Americans recognize their abominations. Current news articles verify the credibility of the 1995 prophecy and the crisis situation in America and the world today.
NewsWithViews.com - March 23, 2007 - Feminism Destroying America: When one searches to find the causes for America's rapid deterioration...there is no greater threat to America's future survival than the overall negative effect that modern-day feminism has had, and is having, upon our homes and churches...Wives and mothers today seem to take pride in their ability to 'control' their husbands. At the same time, however, they seem to be oblivious to the fact that they have absolutely no control over their children. But neither will they allow their husbands (or anyone else) to discipline their children. As a result, today's kids are growing up mostly undisciplined, unrestrained, and uncontrollable...The problem with most children is not an inability to sit still and learn; it is the inability of parents to make their children sit still and learn. When it comes to making children mind, many parents today seem to be absolutely and totally helpless...I do believe that any couple that places their personal careers or ambitions above their primary responsibility to raise respectable, honest, obedient children is not only failing their children; they are failing our country. Selfish, materialistic, egocentric children do not make good citizens. They don't make good employees, good policemen, good teachers, good judges, good pastors, good congressmen, good physicians, or good role models. In fact, they don't make good anythings."
I believe that the lack of parental training in homes throughout the United States is one of the most serious causes of America's lawless society. This is a result of pride which wants its own way. A spirit of pride and control are linked together in parents and passed onto their children. Most parents cannot be taught how to raise their children according to the Scriptures, because they are considered too obsolete. They fill their mind by reading other sources of child rearing materials. As a result, another person's observations and comments are considered meddling, even though their own children are out of control. These children are raised by parents who indulge them in their rebellious natures, because they do not have the heart to train and discipline them in the right way.
WorldNetDaily - April 5, 2007 - Texas Senate Prayer Excludes Christians:..."A controversial Texas imam who at one point participated in a 'tribute to the great Islamic visionary' Ayatollah Khomeini, has offered a prayer to open the state Senate that excluded both Christians and Jews. 'Oh, Allah, guide us to the straight path, the path of those whom you have favored, not of those who have earned your wrath or of those who have lost the way,' prayed Imam Yusuf Kavakei of the Dallas Central Mosque. Islam, of course, teaches that Jews and Christians both have earned the wrath of Allah by failing to follow Islam, and also have lost the way by following the teachings of the Torah for the Jews or the Bible for Christians."
WorldNetDaily - April 5, 2007 - Nearly 300 Freed Because of Teen-Sex Probe, Texas Youth Prison Officials Say Another 1,000 Cases are Under Review..."Nearly 300 inmates of the Texas Youth Commission juvenile detention system are being freed as a result of an investigation into allegations that guards and staff members have been abusing sometimes even raping-the youth, and another 1,000 cases are under review...Now outraged parents are telling the Texas Legislature and others about the abuses their children suffered within the system, and Genger Galloway is leading the charge, telling how her son was forced to perform oral sex by female prison staff, sodomized by an older inmate in an incident arranged by a guard and suffered a broken jaw and concussions in physical attacks...Hurley confirmed there now are 1900 complaints being investigated throughout the statewide system."
The Seattle Times - April 8, 2007 - Fatal Fungus Spreads in Northwest..."Sally Lester, an animal pathologist at a British laboratory, slipped a slide under her microscope -a tissue from a dog on Vancouver Island. Her lens focused on a tiny cell that looked like a boiled egg...On the eastern side of the island, several dead porpoises washed ashore early the next year. A scientist...slit one open. He found its lungs seized by pneumonia and its other organs swollen by strange, flowerlike tumors...a 45-year old mother was feeling ill...She had headaches and night sweats and was tired...The doctor told her she was premenopausal and it would soon past. All would become pieces of a medical mystery centered on a tropical disease apparently brought to North America by a warming climate. An alien fungus took root on Vancouver Island eight years ago and has since killed eight people and infected at least 163 others...

www.NewsWithViews.com - March 28, 2007 - Does God have an Emergency Plan..."Today, a strange paradox exits. What looks like the fulfillment of prophecy is everywhere; unrest in the Middle East, the rise of a European Superstate, the alignment of Gog and Magog, forming of a national ID and gateways through biotechnology that could unleash upon earth pestilence of biblical proportions. People from all three of the world's great religions see these developments as potential omens of an 'End Time' scenario leading to the Apocalypse. Yet many believers in God, especially in America, are indifferent to the need to prepare for the unexpected. An article by Mimi Hall in USA TODAY this week said, "Most Americans haven't taken steps to prepare for a natural disaster, terrorist attack or other emergency, according to a new study on preparedness, and only about a third have made plans with family members about how they would communicate with each other during a crisis."...The notion that calamity is unavoidable if it is divinely predicted is even sanctioned by some expositors who miss the pattern for preparedness in the Bible. While it is true that famine was prophesied for Egypt, it is also a fact that God led Joseph to prepare for it, and, as a result, he saved his family and the nations around about. Proverbs 22:3 tells us that 'a prudent person will foresee such difficulties and prepare for them, while a simpleton will go blindly on and suffer the consequences...' "
