The Lord God Has Spoken to America - Part 2


[For the first half of this message, see The Lord Has Spoken to America - Part 1]

"Come here, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and those who dwell on the earth were made drunk with the wine of her immorality." - Revelation 17:1-2

I want to start by saying there is always hope in the Lord. Even during a time of national judgment, there is hope of reconciliation with God through his son Jesus Christ. There is hope of shining brightly and leading many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. In Christ, death has lost its sting, because at the moment of passing Jesus' promise to the thief on the cross is for us too: "Today you will be with me in Paradise."

Fallen America

We have to discern the times we are living in. Noah understood he was living in the days of the Great Flood, so he built an ark to save his family and, by extension, humanity as well as the animals. Joseph understood he was living in a time of great famine, so he stored up grain to save the people of the earth. Two thousand years ago, the religious establishment in Israel, the Pharisees and Sadducees, did not understand the time of their visitation and missed the first coming of the Messiah. These examples in Scripture were written to instruct and to warn: We should understand our times and prepare for what will come. 

With our own eyes, we can see how America has fallen.

  • America has become a nation of bloodshed at home (abortion) and abroad (endless foreign wars). This has gone on for so long that many people embrace it as normal. But we should not forget what God said to Cain, the first man born on earth, after he slew his brother: "What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to Me from the ground."
  • The "free love" movement and sexual promiscuity of 1960s has metastasized into today's culture of ubiquitous pornography and total sexual and gender fluidity. Young adults and even children are taught sexual preference and gender identity is subject to personal whimsy and choice. How far we have strayed from God's standard established in the garden of Eden: "For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh."
  • Pop culture has surpassed even gratuitous sex and violence. It now portrays blatant satanic rituals onstage, such as Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" performance at the 2014 Grammy Awards. This is idolatry, Old-Testament style, in the face of God's command: "You shall have no other gods before Me." - Exodus 20:3
  • Once upon a time, America had a solid economy built on productivity, ingenuity and a dollar backed by gold. Today the national economy is a pyramid scheme fueled by endless debt, outsourced manufacturing, money printing, war and a dollar backed by nothing. Like all pyramid schemes, it is designed to transfer wealth from the many to the few at the top before it collapses. This is a sophisticated form of theft, in the face of God's command: "You shall not steal." - Exodus 20:15
I could continue. But is plain to see America has fallen from grace. In fact, the nation is in abject rebellion with God.

A casual read of the Old Testament will tell you what happens to a nation that persists in rebellion with God. God delivers it over to judgment. The nation will experience catastrophes and destruction in order that a remnant of its people might be spiritually saved. This is not God's plan A, nor plan B, but a severe last resort.

Some may think, "That can't happen here. This is America. You shouldn't be so negative."

The books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Amos, Hosea and other prophets were similarly negative and admonishing, because they were written to a nation in rebellion with God, just like America. God in his mercy sent prophets to warn Israel and Judah for many decades and called them to repentance. But the people's hearts were hard and unresponsive, and the injustice had to end, so the nation was delivered over to a series of judgments and ultimately destroyed by the armies of Assyria and Babylon. This was done so a remnant might be saved, and indeed a remnant was saved. 
  
Has God spoken to America through prophetic voices? The answer is absolutely YESGod has spoken to America and warned for decades through many different men and women. In recent years and months the voices have reached a crescendo. The message now is that America is under judgment.

Prophetic Voices to America

Below is just a sample of people who I believe have received genuine prophetic messages for America. There are many more out there. Please take these messages to the Lord and ask him to confirm whether they are true.

"But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him." - James 1:5


DAVID WILKERSON:

David Wilkerson was the Founding Pastor of Times Square Church in New York City. He was called by the Lord to New York in 1958 to minister to gang members and drug addicts, as told in the best-selling book that was made into a movie, The Cross and the Switchblade.

In 1973, Wilkerson received a detailed end-times vision in which he saw terrible calamities and great events coming to America and the world. A worldwide economic recession that starts in Germany and goes around the world, including America. Nature having labor pains - major earthquakes, famine, floods, hurricanes - increasing in frequency and intensity as the Day of the Lord approaches. A flood of XXX media in America that would make Playboy Magazine look puritanical. Rebellion in the home and hatred toward parents. A persecution against Spirit-filled Christians such as mankind never before witnessed. The rise of a super world church council consisting of liberal ecumenical protestants and the Roman Catholic Church that will become a political union engaging in antichrist activities. Christ's true church will go underground and grow in spiritual power and unity.

Many elements of Wilkerson's vision have come to pass, and others are unfolding in our time. Wilkerson believed this vision will be fulfilled in this generation. Click here to listen to David Wilkerson's end times vision when he first presented it in 1973.

DUMITRU DUDUMON:

Dumitru Dudumon was a Romanian preacher and Bible smuggle during the Communist era who was tortured in prison for his faith and later sent into exile. Though he spoke no English, God called Dudumon to America in 1984 to preach a message of judgment, repentance and forgiveness. He passed away in 1997. 

In September 1984, shortly after arriving in America, Dumitru was visited by an angel of the Lord and taken into a vision where he was shown the destruction of America in a coordinated attack by Russia and other nations. You can see a video testimony of the vision and a text version here. A subsequent vision in 1996 detailed the involvement of China, Cuba and (North?) Korea as well.

To understand how Dudumon's vision aligns with Bible prophecy, please see these articles:

Steve received a full vision of judgment the night he was saved. He has also received a  prophetic words about America over the years, which you can read here. Here is an excerpt from the word received in May 2014:

"To the Daughter of Babylon and the Great Whore who sits on many waters, My Fury and Wrath is about to be unleashed upon your land and the High Priests and Priestesses who have brought destruction upon your country. You have been sold into slavery and you shall not remember the freedoms of yesteryear as my hand of blessing and protection is lifted...

Repent, Stand fast in the Power of my might infused, with the power of my Holy Spirit, and the authority that I have given to you - The only reason that evil triumphs is because my people fail to Stand against it in My Name. Let not sin have dominion over you, for I have given you the Victory if you will but appropriate it by faith and the Power of the Blood of the Lamb."

NATHAN LEAL:

Nathan Leal is a minister in Northern Idaho who was called in 2005 as a watchman to report the things that are coming on America. Nathan shares prophetic dreams and insights on his website called Watchman's Cry. Here are some prophetic dreams:

ALI WINTERS: 

Ali Winters is a humble servant of the Lord feels called "to sound the alarm, alerting the sheep, awakening those that slumber." She shares prophetic words on her blog, A Watchman on the Wall. Here is an excerpt from a post dated April 11, 2016:

"The days grow dark that are coming upon My dear ones. You cannot escape the judgement. Rain falls on the just and unjust alike. I Am your anchor, your shelter amid all storms and you will not be shaken. Those who cling to Me will see the salvation of their LORD.  They will not be moved. Reach out to others in the days ahead. Reach out to establish relationships, reach out to become an anchor for those who need to know the truth from the lies... 

The walls, the walls will crumble. Spiritual wickedness in high places will be exposed. Your nation will experience much evil in the weeks and months ahead. Your eyes will brim with tears, hearts will grow faint as you see what becomes of your once grand nation. 

Times of joy, times of testing. Times of doubt, fear, hope, courage and strength. My children will experience much to challenge their resolve to follow Me in the times ahead. Darkness blankets the earth as evil spreads her net over nation after nation. The unholy will rejoice, the holy will weep and mourn. Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people."

JOANIE STAHL: 

As a young Jewish girl, Joanie Stahl received Jesus as her Messiah and soon began receiving dreams and visions of world events. At first these gifts scared her, so she asked for them to cease. Instead, they increased and she surrendered her will to God's. Today, Joanie is a wife and mother. She believes the time has come for the “Bride to make herself ready,” which is why she now feels released to share her dreams and visions received during the past 40 years as warnings of things that will soon take place. Here are some of Joanie's dreams and visions:

God's Judgment of America Is Set in Stone
The Great Shepherd Is Urgently Calling Many People Right Now
Unexpected Dark Valleys and Magnificent Victories Coming in 2016
The Noise of Horsemen Are Near, A Violent Shaking and Disorder

Conclusion

For those who have eyes to see by faith, the times we live in are very clear.

I believe the time for warning is over. Judgment has begun and will soon accelerate. If our faith is in any worldly system, institution or person, it will be shattered. If our faith is in the eternal word of God and his promises to us, we will stand against the coming storm. 

Shepherds need to prepare their flocks for the storm.


"And He was also saying to the crowds, "When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, 'A shower is coming,' and so it turns out. And when you see a south wind blowing, you say, 'It will be a hot day,' and it turns out that way. You hypocrites! You know how to analyze the appearance of the earth and the sky, but why do you not analyze this present time?" - Luke 12:54-56


Lion with Wings of an Eagle


In Daniel chapter 7, the prophet Daniel had a dream of four beasts which represent kingdoms in the end times.
 
"The first was like a lion and had the wings of an eagle. I kept looking until its wings were plucked, and it was lifted up from the ground and made to stand on two feet like a man; a human mind also was given to it." - Daniel 7:4


I believe the lion represents England - the symbol of the British monarchy has a lion wearing a crown. The eagle wings represent America. Together they represent the Anglo-American alliance that has been in place since World War II. Wings extending out of a lion also represents how America was born out of England.

However, the wings are plucked, meaning America is taken out.

The fourth beast with ten horns in Daniel's dream, dreadful and terrifying and extremely strong, reappears in Revelation chapter 13 with additional descriptions:

"Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names. And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and HIS MOUTH LIKE THE MOUTH OF A LION. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority." - Revelation 13:2

England, the lion, will become incorporated into the final Beast Kingdom as revealed in Revelation.
