A Response To David Wilkerson’s Message

Yesterday, David Wilkerson, a much-respected man of God, submitted a warning of a dire calamity to come upon this country. Today his message made Worldnet Daily.

Most believers have known for a long time that judgment will come upon this country.

I want to take a look at the setting.

The Setting

There have been a lot of judgments upon this country already. I believe that 9/11 was a turning point in many ways. For those believing this way, it was obvious that God sent something so severe as to get the attention of every single person, something so terrible that it shook the entire nation. A symbol of America’s wealth came tumbling down in ashes, taking the lives of 3,000 people with it.

America didn’t respond. Oh, people flocked to churches for a couple months; but it was like society discussing a new movie making big news for awhile, then moving on to talk about other things. It did not change the hearts of America as a whole. Evil since then has only increased exponentially.

He sent Katrina, and did it in such a way that there could be no doubt that God was expressing his anger at America’s pressure upon Israel to cede her God-given covenant land to her enemies. Katrina hit just as the last Jewish person was being carried out of Gaza, the result of American pressure upon Israel. The timing was astounding. God was speaking again, but few were listening, except the people who are already in the Kingdom. The American people laughed at us who pointed out the incredible timing. We were scorned for daring to say that Katrina was the direct response from heaven, hitting America on the very day the last Jews were forcibly carried out of their homes.

Then came a multitude of fires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, many of which were reported to be “record-breaking.” Damages in the billions of dollars, coast to coast.

Yet since then, multitudes of babies have been murdered. Homosexuals parade in the streets. It’s not just murder and sodomy, it’s ripening degeneracy in general. Rich and powerful men being found out, being exposed as the degenerates they are. Truly, truly, this has become a society in which all that is good is called evil, and all that is evil is embraced under the banner of “tolerance.”

"The Change"

Then along comes a man who wants to bring “change” to America. Change from WHAT? From what George Bush did in response to those 3,000 people murdered in New York? Change from the stands he took against embryonic stem cell research? Change from his standing for marriage being defined as one man joined to one woman? Funny how that word “change” never got defined. It didn’t get defined because it would have been hard to come out and say now’s the time to murder in total freedom, to play with genetics, to sodomize whomever one desires and not lose one’s rights to be homosexual elementary school teachers teaching our children that two daddies or two mommies is “normal.”

Many of us have been putting out warning after warning after warning over the years in response to these things, and have SO felt like Noah must have felt as he built that boat, all the while preaching to the people all around him. Every single person outside of his own family who ever heard that man preach, rejected him. Can you imagine the frustration he must have felt? The whole world was against him. Literally. For speaking the truth. We know the rest of the story.

The Big Picture

Let’s step back and take a look at the big picture of American society in this generation.

If you have eyes to see, you'll see a progressive program of intensified evil starting perhaps in the ‘60’s with Madalyn Murray O’Hair. Then came the women’s movement, no more women being women or men being men, let’s just muddy that whole distinction. Then came the “free love” hippies drug culture unleashing unprecedented destruction of youth through mind-altering drugs. Then came the rise of public displays of sodomy in every place in our society, not even stopping at inflicting themselves on our children. Our values have gone down the tubes one after another after another. I would never have believed I’d ever see the day when every single depiction of God, of Jesus, of prayer, of the 10 Commandments, and SO much more, is banned from America. But I've seen that day. We all have.

Scripture tells us that this is exactly the way the “last days” are going to be. See reference Scriptures at the bottom of this message.

The Last Days

Who could doubt that we are in those days?

One of the greatest “signs” Jesus gave of the last days being upon us is the restoration of the nation of Israel. What was said to be totally impossible just a hundred years ago, has happened in the restoration of the Jews to the land of their fathers. Israel, born in a day. In the exact place where it left off.

We look at the alignment of the nations. The very alliances we see in our daily news media are the alliances foretold THOUSANDS of years ago by the prophets. The very nations mentioned in the last-days events are, as we speak, aligned just as they were foretold. Russia, Iran, China, the European confederation, and so on.

What’s missing from the picture?

There’s nothing missing of the “signs” Scripture tells us will indicate the last days. If we connect the dots, the picture is clear. To those who have the eyes to see it.

“The Change” That Will change the Era

And now, the elections of 2008. America has been made ready for “The Change.” A man quickly arises to power, seemingly out of nowhere, a man of Muslim descent, without the ability to prove he’s even an American citizen, who’s spoken openly about his heart towards Islam, who we know was produced by the likes of Jeremiah Wright, who OPENLY speaks of allowing infant murder even after a live birth, who is pro-sodomy, who makes his first official telephone call to the arch-enemy of Israel, and SO much more... and America doesn’t see the whole picture? They swoon at his feet, some calling him the Messiah, others calling him the President of the World...

This train can’t be stopped. I believe America has finally stepped over the line to the place of no return. We’ve had several severe warnings, but America has banished God from society and from their minds, so how on earth are they going to “get it?”

I receive the message David Wilkerson brought. Had he never brought it, most believers have expected something like what he describes anyway.

My conclusion is that we may be facing a time of unprecedented calamity, the very wrath of God upon a God-rejecting society; but also unprecedented opportunity to persuade those who haven’t yet become hardened beyond remedy.

The time is short.

Be prepared.

Paula,
Like you, I have been trying to warn people, to wake them up to their sinful ways, but no body wanted to listen.

Like you, I have watched as evil multiplied exponentially year after year. I told people that HIV/AIDS was a punishment from God because of the homosexual activity going on, the it spread into the general community through blood transfusions and the sharing of needles by drug addicts and indiscriminate sex. Again, I was called a liar and many other names.

Then the gays and lesbians began to blame the government for not finding a cure for AIDS, and I told people that God will NOT allow us to find a cure until people repent from their sins, and again I was called a liar, a homophobe, and many other despicable names. I was also told that God wouldn't punish people like that because HE loves us so much (You can blame the churches for that one).

This nation and the world has sunk so low, but I don't think we have hit the bottom yet, I believe that sooner or later, should the Lord tarry we will witness the legalization of pedophilia, especially with all of the teachers (mainly female teachers lately) engaged in the practice.

All I can say now is, "may God have mercy on those of us who have tried in vain to warn the masses."

Paula, it isn't that they "DON'T" get it, it is that they "DON'T WANT" to get it.

It's unfortunately all true, Paula. Unfortunately I'm afraid we who try to warn others are spitting into the wind! Very few are listening and many don't even believe that God exists!

I and many preachers in America
(at least those of us who were not tickling ears with easy believism) have warned of judgment coming to America for years.

I guess it took a well known preacher like Pastor David Wilkerson (author of
The Cross and the SwitchBlade as well as founder of Teen Challenge) to get the attention of those who were not truly listening to godly Pastors and Evangelists that have been also preaching warnings about America for years.

Way back in the early 80's;
I read a book by Brotehr Leonard Ravenhill called
"Sodom Had No Bible".

Warnings about America's increase in ungodliness and judgment go back that far.
Now it is worse then in the 80's so America is that much closer to God's judgment or perhaps I should say that much closer to the full effect of His judgment since we have seen some already started.

Amen, again I say, amen!

Hi Paula,

Perhaps David Wilkerson's message for people to have a months supply of food and basic necessities is a 'connect the dot' to the now brewing swine flu? I have spoken of this possibility to a few and will advise accordingly to family but...


I agree with all you shared - I understand the position of having spoken out and been downright chided - called paranoid - ridiculous - over the top - a doomdayer - you name it I have been called it.

Pray for me please Paula and all who know to pray for these times upon us - and coming upon us. May the grace, mercy, love and truth of our G-d and our Messiah sustain us. In Messiah's name I pray - Amen.
