Heed Wilkerson's warning
Posted: March 10, 2009

When I was a kid, I read about David Wilkerson who took to Gospel to the gangs of New York . I even saw the movie "The Cross and the Switchblade" that was made about him. Many know about that, but most don't know what happened in his church just eight years ago.
In the fall of 2001, Pastor David Wilkerson, of Times Square
Church in New York City , was warned by God that a calamity was coming. For six weeks they felt an intense burden and enormous heaviness. A critical need for intercession was so profound that Pastor Wilkerson canceled everything on the church calendar - mission's conferences, youth events and every guest speaker.
For six weeks, there wasn't a sermon. Instead, there was intercession for our nation with weeping and repentance. They knew something was coming and that something was bad. And that something was soon. So they prayed. And prayed ... and prayed.
Then Wilkerson felt God telling him something that seemed rather bizarre. He felt God telling him to make sandwiches - lots of sandwiches. What were they for? Who would eat them? That part wasn't clear, but his church did what they believed God was telling them anyway.
And on the 10th of September they stayed up all night making hundreds and hundreds of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. By morning they had about 2,000 sandwiches. At 8:46 a.m. the first plane hit the World Trade Center and Times Square Church was ready to feed and minister to rescue workers and victims of our nation's worst attack.
Making sandwiches all night is a strange thing to do. If someone told me to stay up all night making sandwiches, I'd probably tell them they were crazy. But if David Wilkerson says he's heard something from God today, I think we'd be crazy not to listen.
He now says he feels the same thing he felt leading up to the attack by radical Islam. In an "URGENT MESSAGE" dated March 7, 2009, Wilkerson said:
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 10 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 ago.
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 is written: ... 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 generation.
WHAT SHALL THE RIGHTEOUS DO? WHAT ABOUT GOD'S PEOPLE?
First, I give you a practical word I received for my own direction. If possible lay in store a 30-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.
... 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...
So, when the guy who made the 2,000 sandwiches on Sept. 10 warns us: "AN EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN," I think we would do well to heed it. And follow the words Wilkerson quotes from the prophet Jeremiah and "turn back each of you from your evil way, and reform your ways and deeds."
from an email from RG Reese:
BELOW IS A FIRST-TIME CORRESPONDENCE FROM A RUSSIAN PASTOR. HE BELIEVES THE LORD HAS SHOWN TO HIM THE TIME PERIOD OF THE FALL OF 2008 TO THE FALL OF 2015 (THE SAME TIME PERIOD THAT THE LORD HAS SHOWN TO ME). HE ALSO BELIEVES THAT IN THE FALL OF 2010 THE ECONOMIC SYSTEMS OF THE WORLD WILL COMPLETELY COLLAPSE, WHICH WILL BE BROUGHT ON BY A CATASTROPHIC EVENT IN THE UNITED STATES.
THIS PASTOR ALSO BELIEVES IN A TWO-YEAR GREAT DELIVERANCE IN THE FALL OF 2008, JUST LIKE IN THE 7-YEAR FAMINE WEEK OF JOSEPH, JUST LIKE THE LORD HAS SHOWN TO ME. THE FALL OF 2008 IS NOW HERE AND SOMETHING REALLY, REALLY BIG IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN!!! ARE YOU READY??
Dear brother Ron,
My name us Andrey Rasshivaev. I live in Russia. I am very blessed by your revelations, brother!
Your feelings and revelations on the closest future go in a full correspondence with mine! I decide to write you and share with you what I have been receiving from the Lord. Below there is my letter to David Wilkerson that I wrote him in the very beginning of this year being led by the Holy Spirit:
My name is Andrey Rasshivaev. I live in S-Petersburg, Russia and am a pastor
of a non-denominational church.
At the very end of the year of 2007 I have received a revelation from God
that the coming 2008 year was going to be the year of the beginning of
outpouring of God's judgment upon this world. I told the church about it at
the very last Sunday service of 2007. And indeed in the year of 2008 God
has struck the financial-economical system of this world. It reminded me
like He had struck the Nile river in Egypt. You probably know that inasmuch
as in Egypt there was a great lack of rains, the only source of water( and
hence the source of economical prosperity) for Egypt was Nile. And that's
why this river was struck first. So, if Egypt represents this world, then
the Nile represents the economical and financial system of this world.
Therefore we can affirm that God's judgment upon this world has started in
the 2008 year.
About half a year ago God has given me a further revelation. He reveled me
that the crisis was just the very beginning. The world is going to face the
total and complete economical and financial collapse in the Fall of
this new 2010 year. This coming collapse will be provoked by very awful,
frightful and tragic events that is going to happen in the U.S. As I see it
now the N.Y. city is going to be totally destroyed. And it's going to happen
unexpectedly, at one day. The whole world will be dipped into chaos and panic. And all those events will be the preparation for the NEW economical system to be built by a ONE world leader-antichrist.
This is what the Holy Spirit has moved me to share with you.
Hope you know what to do with this...
your bro. Andrey.
Also I have posted this letter on the Watchmanscry’s forum( www.watchmanscry.com ). Brother Nathan Leal asked me to tell him more about my revelations. And here is what I wrote him:
Yes, brother, I have listened to your message on Dollar's crash.
As regards my prophesy I can add something too. First of all let me tell
you how I have received a revelation that the year of 2008 will be the beginning of outpouring of God's judgment upon this world.
Approximately in November of 2007 God gave me a night dream in which I saw water all over the planet turns into blood. When I woke up I asked God for the interpretation of the dream and he told me in my heart that the next year(2008) will be the year of the beginning of his judgment. Then He showed me that in the Bible there are prophetic events that actually predict those coming events in nowadays world.
First of all it relates to the turning of waters of Nile into blood by Moses.
Then He showed me this:
"And seven days were fulfilled, after that the LORD had smitten the river."
Seven days are seven years in prophetic sense. So, what has happened in
seven days? Frogs came in. In the Bible there is one more passage talking
about FROGS. This is Rev.16:13-16:
"And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [come] out of the mouth of the
dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false
prophet. 14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, [which] go
forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to
the battle of that great day of God Almighty. And he gathered them together
into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon."
Armageddon is the final attempt of antichrist to completely destroy Israel.
In other words according to these prophetic scriptures the preparation for
this battle will start in 7 years after the world's economical crisis has
started, which is in the Fall of 2015! Please, notice that it talks just
about a preparation for the battle which may take several months. Therefore I think that the battle itself(Armageddon) will take place in 2016.
I know that those who read English Bible think that the 7 years of
tribulation must start with the negotiation between antichrist and Israel.
But it sounds this way only in English Bible. In Russian Bible this
scripture implies that Christ will make a covenant with many during 7 years.
But what is more important the Hebrew text has the same meaning. In other
words it predicts that the last 7 years before Christ's coming will be the
period when many of Jews will be turned to Him.
Now, let us turn to another prophetic event in the Bible.
I am talking about 7 years of prosperity and then 7 years of famine. God
showed me that September 11 of 2001 was the day when the 7 years of
prosperity have begun in the world. And indeed since the Fall of
2001 and till the Fall of 2008 there was a real economical boom in the whole
world! But September of 2008 was the beginning of "7 years of famine".
Now, let us read the scripture that describes the revelation of Josef to his
"And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they
came near. And he said, I [am] Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt.
Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me
hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life. For these two years
[hath] the famine [been] in the land: and yet [there are] five years, in the
which [there shall] neither [be] earing nor harvest. "(Gen.45:4-6)
See, The revelation of Josef(Jesus) to his brothers(Jews) has happened in TWO
years after the seven years of famine have begun. It shows us that turning
God's face to Jews will happen in the Fall of 2010!!! But this event tightly
connected with the removing of the 6-th seal(Rev.6) which in allegorical
sense represents the collapse of the U.S. and as a result - total collapse
of the world's economy which will deep the whole world into panic and chaos
for awhile. Please read Rev.6:12-17 and compare this with a couple of other
scriptures: Ezek. 32:1-10 and Is.2:10-21.
And then see what follows the removing of the 6-th seal: Rev.7:1-8(144.000 Jews out of all tribes of Israel).
P.S. I know that my English is not perfect, but I hope you will be able to understand what I have written here...
Now, why I say that the 6-th seal in the book of revelation represents the U.S. collapse. Because this symbolism(Sun, moon and stars, their strike, and also an earthquake ) is used by God when speaking about collapse of Babylon(Is.13:9-13) and Egypt(Ez.32: 7-10). Both countries used to be a “super state”, a super power in those times. They both would stand in the economical and political head of the ancient world. Today there is only one country that still stands in the economical and political head of the world. This is U.S.A.
Hope, brother, this staff will be a confirmation to you. Please, feel free to use it as you think is right.
May God bless you!
