In 1973 David Wilkerson had a vision. The following is from “The Vision and Beyond” and on page 28, here’s what it says
“…The United States is going to experience, in the not-too-distant future, the most tragic earthquake in its history. One day soon this nation will be reeling under the impact of the biggest news story of modern times. It will be coverage of the biggest, most disastrous earthquake in history. This earthquake will cause widespread panic and fear. Without a doubt, it will become one of the most completely reported earthquakes ever. Television networks will suspend all programming and carry all-day coverage. Another earthquake, possible in Japan, may precede the one that I see coming here. There is not the slightest doubt in my mind about this forthcoming massive earthquake on our continent. I believe it will be many times more severe than the San Francisco quake.”
“I am not at all convinced that this earthquake will take place in California. In fact, I believe it is going to take place where it is least expected. This terrible earthquake may happen in an area that’s not known as an earthquake belt. It will be so high on the Richter scale that it will trigger two other major earthquakes. I also believe we are going to see, later, a major earthquake in the Aleutian Islands, which will result in a number of smaller earthquakes and aftershocks all along the west coast of the United States.”
“News about government scandals, news about war and even economic problems will be completely overshadowed by earthquakes. Within minutes after this quake hits, the whole country will know it, and millions will be stunned and shocked.”
Also interesting is that Pastor Wilkerson said that a great worldwide recession (not a depression) will start of in Germany and then spread to the USA. It recently came to light that it is true that the financial collapse did start with Germany. The following is from the New York Times:
IN August 2007, as world financial markets were seizing up, domestic and foreign banks began lining up for cash from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
That Aug. 20, Commerzbank of Germany borrowed $350 million at the Fed’s discount window. Two days later, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and the Wachovia Corporation each received $500 million. As collateral for all these loans, the banks put up a total of $213 billion in asset-backed securities, commercial loans and residential mortgages, including second liens.
Thus began the bank run that set off the financial crisis of 2008. But unlike other bank runs, this one was invisible to most Americans.
I have found an audio copy of Pastor Wilkerson’s Vision. You can download it at the following link: _THE_VISION__David_Wilkerson_-_mp3_audio.mp3
I am not one for modern day prophets and will not endorse them. With this I make an exception as David Wilkerson has lead a Godly and God fearing live. What he says in the book and on the audio file sounds plausible and a warning of what is to come. Also note that this vision was 38 years ago. Some of what he said has already come to pass and some is still future. Also note that he does not say “The Lord says”, but he rather says what he believes he has seen (I see…).
