David Wilkerson’s Mega-Quake and Economic Storm Could be Close

japan_earthquake

Last week southern Japan was struck with two earthquakes, first on Thursday April 14, a 6.2 magnitude and again early Saturday April 16, a 7.1 under Kumamoto, a densely populated urban area.

Over 40 years ago David Wilkerson, founder of Teen Challenge Ministries and founding Pastor of Times Square Church in New York City, predicted a mega quake would unexpectedly strike America following one in Japan.

Are we on the verge of the fulfillment of his prophecies? In the second chapter of his 1974 book The Vision, he states:

“The United States is going to experience in the not-too-distant future the most tragic earthquakes 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.”

“It will cause widespread panic and fear. Without a doubt, it will become one of the most completely reported earthquake ever. Television networks will suspend all programming and carry all day coverage.”

“Another earthquake, possibly 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 in our continent.”

“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 not known as an earthquake belt. It will be so high on the Richter scale that it will trigger two other major earthquakes.”

I’ve followed the ministry of Wilkerson since I read his book, The Cross and the Switchblade, in the 80’s in my late teens.  In the last year I’ve reviewed his ministry more carefully and I have no doubt that his basic doctrine is sound.  He was a self-sacrificing servant of God who during his 50+ year ministry repeatedly ventured his life for the sake of the gospel and for the glory of God.

You can listen to his first public description of his vision in 1973 in the video below. It is only a half-hour long, but it is riveting.

Listen especially to his description at the 10-minute mark referring to spiritual Babylon. Rather than identifying it as such, Wilkerson calls it the Super Church.  He predicts not merely the formation of one Super Church, but two.  Super Church #1 he says will be an oppressive, global anti-Christ organization.  In contrast, Super Church #2 he says will be the invisible, empowered, underground Super Church of Jesus Christ.  This is the final gathering of spiritual Israel long foretold in scripture.

As you listen, notice what he says causes the formation of Super Church #1 – “a mysterious chain of events”.  Wilkerson never says directly what that chain of events is, but we have a clue of what the consequences of those events will be because, according to the vision, Super Church #1 is a coalition formed initially to address pressing humanitarian needs.  This suggests to me a massive humanitarian crises that will unite Catholics and Protestants over night to relieve suffering, so it could be triggered by the fulfillment of his other warning about a mega-earthquake.

“Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7 (NIV 2011)

Action Plan:

Earthquakes can not only destroy infrastructure such as dams, large earthquakes can change the course of rivers and the landscape itself.

What does this mean for you and me? The convergence of all of these signs should cause us to pause and do some careful self-examination and be on our toes. We should get our spiritual house in order and have an emergency plan.  Those living in the low lying coastal areas or below dams and reservoirs near the epicenter would be at risk. In the affected areas be prepared to spend the night in cars or outdoors because large earthquakes often have large fore and aftershocks.

Several news sites, including the LA Times are reporting huge sections of land around the San Andreas fault rising and sinking.

And we do know that there have been earthquakes in Japan in the recent past.

Kevin Mirasi posted today of having a vision of a 9+ earthquake coming to Japan and an economic crisis coming to Germany and Europe.

My daughter had a physical news flash across her phone that Trump had won New york . She was glad and then her spirit sensed something bad is going to happen in the next couple of days. She started telling a few people to be prepared. Go get water, food, dog food, etc. she is very insistent i have good waterproof boots. She said if nothing happens we can donate food. She said main thing to do is pray. And be prepared to hear and do what God tells us to do. Her cousin told her she is sensingsomething is coming. We all live in Minnesota. I am not an alarmest i just wanted to warn/tell/help someone else. We have a big God and our prayers can overcome the plans of the devil.

Yes, also check out “Eye for Eye” by William Koenig. Same premise of judgement here. He documented every case where the US messed with Israel, and we were ALWAYS judged within 24 hours in a way that paralleled what we did to Israel. One example that blew mind mind was when Bush signed the agreement that forced Israelis out of their homes in the Gaza West Bank to relocate and within 24 hours hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans… the levee that broke and allowed flooding was called the West Bank! And the exact amout of people who were displaced from their homes in Israel were displaced in New Orleans!

Great post, I remember that when I watched Ken Peters on prophecy club, I saw the rapture, he said that he saw an earthquake so massive in destruction that they didn’t even bother to send in rescue teams to look for survivors. God has warned us, pray for mercy on the unsaved that this shaking will wake them up, and be a time of witness and testimony . Blessings

I was familiar with David Wilkerson’s book The Cross and the Switchblade, and I have been a supporter of Teen Challenge for years. However, I had never read any of his other works until this week. It saddens me that the churches just disregarded the words the Lord gave to him. I suppose it isn’t surprising, but the Bible says that “we will know a tree by it’s fruit.’ David Wilkerson had a very fruitful tree!

I was just reading David Wilkerson’s article “The Last Revival” yesterday and it is hard to believe that was written in 1988. There was one part that resonated so true I had to pause and think about a prophetic word my husband was given for the pastor of our former church. (the word mentioned several things, one being that there is only one Kingdom of God, not our pastor’s kingdom that he had been building) From David’s article: “Some boast we are in revival, that the prosperity message packing auditoriums is God’s Word, that many spiritual children are being born. I believe God will look upon the past 20 years as famine of the Word, as years the cankerworm has eaten, years of self-seeking, years of strangers being exalted in God’s house, years of devilish music, proud preachers, money madness, empire building, years of shallowness. “They have dealt treacherously against the Lord; for they have begotten strange children…” (Hosea 5:7). “Yet I had planted you a noble vine, wholly a right seed; how then are you turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine to me?” (Jeremiah 2:21).

A larger quake just occurred in the north central area of Japan. This is the area where the earthquake hit during the 2011 quake and tsunami. It is part of the Pacific Plate subduction and Tokyo is near the southern end of this plate. Here is the info from JMA. http://www.jma.go.jp/en/quake/20160420212343395-202119.html
