On September 11 2015, I had a dream that I was at the beach overlooking the water from a two story balcony.
I was with some acquaintances and extended family. I was trying to tell them about a severe weather forecast that I saw, but no one would turn to me and listen. They all continued to laugh and talk amongst each other.
I looked out at the ocean and I noticed a large wave coming in. It landed and moved up the coast as a rising tide would. I tried to get them to look at it, but no one listened to me.
Then a second wave came, even larger. It continued to creep it’s way inland further up on the sand. Still no one would look at me while I continued to preach of the weather that was coming. I told them a tsunami is coming and we must get ready.
Then a third wave came and it crested higher than all the others. When it splashed down I asked everyone, “Did you see that wave?!!”
This time it got their attention and they stopped talking. Everyone got very still and quiet as they looked toward the ocean, but no one moved.
Next, a fourth and final wave rose up and crashed on the beach and the water rose so high that it came up and touched our ankles on the second story balcony. Finally, everyone began to listen to me. They frantically started running around chaotically saying that they needed to go to the store.
I told them, “It is probably too late. You will be flooded on the way to the store. That’s why I tried to warn you of the forecast!”
My sister-in-law turned to me nonchalantly and said, “Oh it’s okay, we can just sleep in your living room.”
I woke up with a feeling of frustration that no one would listen or prepare for the storm.
Joe, I also live in the Midwest where there is massive food production. Some of the farmers have thirty to forty thousand acre farms and grown massive amounts of wheat in Kansas.
Prophet Bob Jones said along with Mike Bickle through IHOP that there would be a massive California earthquake and many survivors would come to the interior Midwest because of this abundant rainfall and wheat production within a radius of five hundred miles around both Kansas City and St. Louis. The world will want our wheat. Many believers in this area are banking on this happening.
Brenda, I don’t buy that for a minute……. These people made SPECIFIC “predictions” with SPECIFIC time frames……. They were wrong.
Brenda Brown says
I agree Linda. Not to mention that just because a dream states something about a particular time period, doesn’t mean that time period is literal, or starts from when the dream was had. Interpreting a dream takes as much inspiration, if not more, than having one, so you can’t just condemn people as ‘false’ because they interpreted a dream erroneously. While it’s true that there are a lot of people who think they’re prophets and have prophetic things to say, there are also a lot of true prophets that God has raised up. The only way to tell what is real from what is false is by following the witness of Christ within our spirits, without that, we are just as apt to be wrong as the people we’re calling false.
Linda Clay says
Not all who are given dreams, visions and revelations give dates. And just because something does not happen when others believe they will happen, or look like what others believe they will look like, does not mean these are “false”. All prophecies must be taken to the LORD in prayer, rather than just read for “entertainment purposes”.
Josey Wales says
It’s easier to find a needle in a haystack than to find a REAL prophet. There ARE a lot of needles out there. It’s just that there’s so much hay.
There are a couple bible and recent prophet prophecies I’ve described to my unbelieving wife. Basically I ask her if she will believe if we get a huge tsunami, the country breaks apart or a mortal wound to the ant-Christ’s head………… Thankfully, the rest I’ve kept to myself (as nothing materialized). Prophecies, like miracles, can open the eyes and hearts of non-believers as well as believers.
I’m with you Josey. We’ve got a pile of failed dates and now when I hearvprophecy, I say Lord, this is a given. We know these things are coming to pass, but what we need are some timing signs to be given and to back it, like a prophecy to prove a prophecy. It seems James has just that, with the 200 million and to await for the 1.2 billion. I’ve become a bit synical when hearing some prophecy. Lord forgive me, but unless we get some timing to these things, we won’t be able to properly prepare.
I am VERY frustrated on this matter too. For example, I remember back in the Spring Mena Grebin specifically saying the Lord very clearly told her to have her supplies all picked up by the end of Summer. I didn’t misinterpret that. That was a clear message and her post on that can easily be looked up again. Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean something was going to happen in September. But, why would God tell a person that (food only lasts so long you know, and he was talking among other things about food when he said that to Mena). Why would he say that to her…. if things were still a few years out before everything started to go down the tubes in a big way?
So, to some who I see saying now oh maybe God gave us a few more years grace, so hallelujah…. I guess they are entitled to their opinion, but I believe God is a God of order and not of chaos. He didn’t tell the people to march around Jericho for a few days and then tell them okay we’ll finish this place off in 5 years instead of next week, because I’ve changed my mind. Could God do that? Sure, he can do anything. But, that doesn’t seem to be how he operates historically speaking.
The more time goes on, I am becoming more and more selective of who I listen to. Everybody has an opinion on something. Everybody has a Word from the Lord these days. Not everybody that says such things is even of the Lord.
For the record, I believe the man running this website is a good man. He’s sincere. I believe he is a true man of God. And, I believe he is just trying to convey what he is hearing from the Lord. But, there are many others…. that I am not sure of.
Something else that I’ve really begun to consider lately is…. maybe what’s good for somebody else isn’t really good for me.
For example, I live in the nation’s heartland away from big cities like you’ll find along the coasts. I do live on the outskirts of a medium sized city (120,000). With that said, I live in the nation’s so-called breadbasket where we produce corn, soybeans and a plethora of other crops necessary to the welfare of this country. I think there is eventually going to be a lot of devastation on the coasts initially (due to natural disasters and perhaps even someday an invasion). But, say in the case of an invasion…. I highly doubt the invaders would want to completely destroy the heartland where much of the world’s food supply comes from (that’s one of our biggest assets – food production).
80% of the people in this country live on the coasts! Their immediate future may look different from mine. Yes, I am prepared. But, I don’t discount the fact that maybe God told somebody in NC to prepare for a NC-specific event not necessarily a nation-wide event. That doesn’t mean we should all prepare in the same way then. Maybe our preparation efforts where we are will look a bit differently.
It’s just another angle to consider here. At the end of the day, I believe that no matter where a person is if they are aware and sober about the times we live in, they are many many times ahead of the general population. Many in the general population are so tuned out/blinded to what is going on around them that it’s unreal.

Shalom, The Father told her to be ready by September because after September would begin the Shmitah. He would never tell anyone to break His own law by harvesting/storing up food when the land is supposed to be resting. The following year would be a Jubilee, which we are currently in and is almost over as of this September! That’s why we needed to be prepared ahead of time! The scripture says six years you can plant and reap but the seventh is a land rest this year Jubilee started following the Shmitah. We needed to have all our preparing done ahead of time. HE NEVER CHANGES! Leviticus 25: 20-22

Anti-Semitism has been world-wide for 4000 years, since Abraham………Why?……..Its spiritual……..Saints are led by the Holy Spirit…….sinners are led+controlled by evil spirits (demons)……….many sinners dont know why they hate the jews+saints, but its because the demons cause them to …………Why did Hitler hate the Jews? Nobody has ever said (because it was spiritual)………….Why does the world hate Christ? Because the “Judge of all the earth” will hold us accountable for what we’ve said+done(and the demons cause us to hate Christ)………..Why does the world love anything+everything except the TRUTH? (because its spiritual)……….How does hypnotism work? Its spiritual, from demons……….How does water-witching work? Its spiritual, from demons……………How do the WHIRLING DERVISHES twirl on the dance floor for hours without getting dizzy? Its spiritual, from demons……….Ask Jesus to open your Spiritual eyes and ears. Praise Christ!
Good point Josey. Can anyone really point to a prophecy that has come to fruition? I know James prophecy nailed the $200 million funding and is now waiting for the increase to $1.2 billion.

Spend a day going back through archives of all these alternative media sites and see what’s been said and prophesied over the last 2 to 3 + years. See dates things were predicted etc. You’ll notice a general theme. “Doomsday will hit in 3 weeks to 3 months !!!!” There’s “some” variations … but that’s basically what you’ll hear. As for prophecy sites … and channels on Youtube … maybe 3 % to 7 % are for real. The rest give “vague” descriptions of “visions and dreams.” We all want to know the future. We’re not supposed to go to psychics but … what if so and so says “God told them this and that !!” DID God tell them this and that ? I don’t know. Check the archives 🙂 Pray. Stock up. Arm up. Get with others who do the same. Skim headlines. Then … live life. Make $$. Be happy … I reckon it’s all going to end in 3 weeks to 3 months !!!!!!!!

Josey Wales, I hear ya………I’ve heard a lot of false? prophecies also,,,,,,,,,,but, Dean Coombs predicted the death-date of SADDAM HUSSEIN 3 months before it happened……..I marked the date on my calendar,,,,,,,,I waited 3 months,,,,,,Saddam died on the correct date,,,,,and he died by the noose (hanging, just like Haman)……….it knocked my socks off!……..I saw a real miracle!……I saw fulfilled prophecy from Jesus Himself (from a bible-code in the OT)……..I am eye-witness………I was there (on the internet) when Coombs did it…….so, the supernatural is alive and well in these endtimes………When our leaders preach Global Warming lies, Jesus sends the GORE EFFECT…….When our leaders hurt Israel, Jesus sends a great Sign or catastrophe to our nation,,,,,,,,, 9-11-01 world trade center collapse was a warning from Jesus of the 9-11-08 world trade collapse…..Coombs told us that the economy will slowly sink to zero in these endtimes,,,and these Signs will increase like birthpangs,,,,,,,and we saints will end up in babylon (rome) and in prison, like Paul,,,,…http://www.bible-codes.org/Saddam-hang.htm…………http://bible-codes.org/

Didn’t see anything heavy on Youtube – Coombs. Maybe James should look into it ?
