"Earthquake vision"

Dear friends:

Retired educator and long-time friend Dr. Noel Caldwall shared his latest article with me today.  He spoke of part of David Wilkerson's well-known vision that Wilkerson documented in his book, "The Vision," back in 1974.

Dr. Caldwell shared that in Chapter 2, Wilkerson spoke prophetically about drastic weather changes and earthquakes that would be coming.  On pages 32 – 34, Wilkerson write that in the not too distant future the United States would experience “the most tragic earthquake in its history.”  He said it would be the biggest news story and that this nation will be reeling under its impact.   TV networks will carry all-day coverage.  Also, Wilkerson said, Another earthquake, possibly in Japan, may precede the one I see coming here.”  He said that he had not the “slightest doubt” in his mind about this great earthquake coming to our continent.

I read Wilkerson's vision back in the 1970s but I had forgotten the part where he said, "Another earthquake, possibly in Japan, may precede the one I see coming here."

That did not seem so relevant in the 1970s, but it is very relevant and profound in light of what recently happened in Japan

This is just my guess, but I suspect such an earthquake in the U.S. will be along the New Madrid fault line running north and south in the mid-west near the Mississippi River.  The 1812 New Madrid earthquake is the strongest ever felt in the U.S.  Some believe a future New Madrid quake will be even stronger and more devastating and will literally split the country in two.  I see this "dividing of our land" in retribution for America trying to divide God's land with a so-called "two-state solution," which is an abomination but which has been blindly pursued by several U.S. Presidents.

Personally, I believe the rapture will occur before such an earthquake and many of us will never experience it.  It will be a part of the Tribulation, probably soon, and I don't plan to be here.  Experience it if you like, but don't count on me.  I'll be outa here!

By the way, from 1900 to 1997, the frequency of earthquakes worldwide between Richter 6.0 to 8.0 was typically less than 5 per year.  Gradually, since 1998, it has dramatically increased to 20 or much more (Source: USGS chart.)
