The Lord has been putting it on my heart to share something that I have been holding onto. I have been praying about it the last few days and He has been encouraging me to share. Early this morning, He said, “I have given you information that I want you to share.”
During the afternoon of May 20, 2017, I was bored and wanted to read something, so I asked the Lord what He wanted me to read. He gave me Jeremiah 14. When I went there with my iPad, I noticed it opened up directly to Jeremiah 14. I was stunned and sat there trying to remember what it was that led me to read it previously, that it was already there. Then I remembered it was Allison Pound’s prophetic word about destruction coming to New York City in two phases (See complete post). I had been looking at her prophecy because the Lord had been speaking to me about it, and He actually linked it to the dream He gave me about oil, which revealed a spike followed by a crash in oil prices. (See complete post published August 2017).
This all started when I was praying for the people of Manhattan, but as I was praying, I couldn’t remember the name ‘Manhattan’. I was trying to recall the name it, but what was coming to my mind was ‘Brooklyn’. I didn’t think anything of it, until it happened consistently for a few days. As I was praying during those few days, I started wondering why the name ‘Brooklyn’ readily came to mind. I asked the Lord about it, and He reminded me of the word that He gave to Alison Pound. Then He told me, “Brooklyn is the gateway to New York City.”
I didn’t know anything about Brooklyn because I have never been to New York City and was obviously completely ignorant about it, so I looked up Brooklyn on Google maps and found it seems to be the central part of New York City. Then when I reviewed the word given to Alison Pound, I was surprised by the wording because it states, “What are the gates to New York City? She has a gateway by sea, her name is Babylon.”
I went back to the map and was a bit stunned because Brooklyn is situated in front of Manhattan, so anyone going from the sea towards Manhattan would pass by Brooklyn. Putting everything together, I believe the two events in my prophetic dream about oil were the same two events revealed to Alison because the Lord confirmed to me that New York City will be destroyed in two separate events.
He also showed me the first event will be some kind of calamity that happens to Brooklyn and when it happens, it will be a signal, a warning from the Lord, to leave the city. This event will also cause oil prices to rise sharply and will cause everyday people to gasp in shock and surprise.
The coming calamity in Brooklyn will be the first of two events. The second calamity will be an attack that will cause oil prices to crash. I believe part of what causes oil prices to crash in a vision on July 9, 2017. In this vision, a Russian Aircraft Carrier launched a rocket from the Baltic Sea. I was told this rocket will strike New York (See complete post). Of course, I already knew that New York City is really what the Lord was talking about. I cannot say for sure the rocket launch is part of the second calamity because the Lord did not tell me that, but it seems obvious, according to my understanding. However, it might happen differently.
As I ﬁnished writing up what I found in my journal on this topic from more than a year ago, I thought the Lord wanted us to pray for the people of Brooklyn. He told me to read Jeremiah 14, and I immediately remembered that He gave the same passage of scripture to Alison Pound. As I was reading it, I was astonished by verses 11-12, which says,
“Don’t pray for this people or for their welfare. When they fast, I will not hear their cry; when they oﬀer burnt oﬀerings and grain oﬀerings, I will not accept them. Rather, I will destroy them with war, famine and disease.”
Upon reading this, I felt helpless, like there is nothing I can do. I could only lay it down at the Lord’s feet and say, “Your will be done.”
Jeremiah 14 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
1 The word of Adonai ([the] Lord) that came to Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah) concerning the drought:
2 “Y’hudah (Judah) is mourning, her gates are languishing; they sit on the ground in gloom; Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) sends up a cry of anguish.
3 Her nobles send their servants for water; they go to the cisterns but ﬁnd no water, so they return with empty jars. Ashamed and dismayed, they cover their heads.
4 Because of the ground, which is cracked, since it has not rained in the land, the farmers are ashamed; they cover their heads.
5 The doe in the countryside, giving birth, abandons her young for lack of grass.
6 The wild donkeys standing on the bare heights gasp for air like jackals; their eyes grow dim from trying to spot any vegetation.”
7 Although our crimes witness against us, take action, Adonai, for your name’s sake; for our backslidings are many; we have sinned against you.
8 You, hope of Isra’el, its savior in time of trouble, why should you be like a stranger in the land, like a traveler turning aside for the night?
9 Why should you be like a man in shock, like a champion unable to save? You, Adonai, are right here with us; we bear your name — don’t leave us!
10 Here is what Adonai says to this people: “They so love to wander, they don’t restrain their feet; so Adonai does not want them. Now he will remember their crimes, and he will punish their sins.”
11 Then Adonai said to me, “Don’t pray for this people or for their welfare.
12 When they fast, I will not hear their cry; when they oﬀer burnt oﬀerings and grain oﬀerings, I will not accept them.Rather, I will destroy them with war, famine and disease.”
13 Then I said, “Adonai, God! The prophets are telling them, ‘You won’t see war, and you won’t have famine; but I will give you secure peace in this place.’”
14 Adonai replied, “The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I didn’t send them, order them or speak to them. They are prophesying false visions to you, worthless divinations, the delusions of their own minds.
15 Therefore,” Adonai says, “concerning the prophets who prophesy in my name, whom I did not send, yet they say, ‘There will be neither war nor famine in this land’ — it will be war and famine that will destroy those prophets.
16 And the people to whom they are prophesying will be thrown out into the streets of Yerushalayim because of the famine and war, with no one to bury them — them, or their wives, or their sons, or their daughters — because I will pour their own wickedness out uponthem.
17 You are to give them this message: ‘Let my eyes stream with tears night and day, unceasingly, because the virgin daughter of my people has been severely broken; she has been dealt a crushing blow.
18 If I go out in the ﬁeld, I see those slain with the sword. If I enter the city, I see the victims of famine. Meanwhile, prophets and cohanim (priests) ply their trade in the land, knowing nothing.’”
19 Have you rejected Y’hudah completely? Is Tziyon (Zion) loathsome to you? Why have you struck us irreparably? We looked for peace, but to no avail; for a time of healing, but instead found terror!
20 We confess our rebellion, Adonai, also the crimes of our ancestors; yes, we have sinned against you.
21 For your name’s sake, do not spurn us; do not dishonor your glorious throne. Remember your covenant with us; do not break it.
22 Among the nations’ idols, can any make it rain? Can the skies, of themselves, send showers? Aren’t you the one, Adonai, our God? Don’t we look to you? For you do all these things.

Dorothy Degman is a mother of a little girl and a housewife, for now. She has a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, and, as such a degree involves very difficult subjects, she learned how to lean on the Lord for help. What she didn’t know was she would not be using what she learned about science, but using what she learned about the Lord, as He made Himself known to her in extraordinary ways, when she really needed help.
In 2015, the Lord put an end to her studies in chemistry, as circumstances would not allow her to continue. Since then, she has devoted herself to the Lord, and has come to love Him more deeply than she ever thought possible. He has called her to put aside everything to wait on Him and allow Him to prepare her for what He will have her do.
