Convergence of These Fearful Visions From Prophets of the Last Century Is Upon Us

In 1927 Smith Wigglesworth prophesied:

There must be special preparation for the return of Christ and at least half of all believers will be totally unprepared. We have to see that these days have to come before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away. I want to speak to you very exactly. All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature and preparing them for a greater thing and causing them to be ready for translation.

This is the day of purifying. This is the day of holiness. This is the day of separation. This is the day of waking. O God, let us wake today! Let the inner spirit wake into consciousness that God is calling us.

In 1950, the late Kenneth E. Hagin received this divinely granted appearance:

I looked at the scroll again, and again I looked to see what I had read about. I saw the skyline of a large city. Looking closer, I saw the skyscrapers were burned-out hulls. Portions of the city lay in ruins. It was not written that just one city would be destroyed, burned and in ruins, but that there would be many such cities.

The scroll was written in the first person, and seemed as if Jesus Himself were speaking. I read: “America is receiving her last call. Some nations already have received their last call and never will receive another.”

Then, in larger print, it said, “THE TIME OF THE END OF ALL THINGS IS AT HAND.” This statement was repeated four or five times. Jesus also said this was the last great revival. He went on to say: “All the gifts of the Spirit will be in operation in the church in these last days, and the church will do greater things than even the early church did. It will have greater power, signs and wonders than were recorded in the Acts of the Apostles.”

I believe in visions we have seen and experienced many healings, but we will now behold amazing miracles that have not been seen before. Jesus continued: “More and more miracles will be performed in the last days which are just ahead, for it is time for the gift of the working of miracles to be more in prominence. We now have entered into the era of the miraculous.

Many of my own people will not accept the moving of my Spirit, and will turn back and will not be ready to meet Me at my coming. Many will be deceived by false prophets and miracles of satanic origin. But follow the Word of God, the Spirit of God and Me, and you will not be deceived. I am gathering my own together and am preparing them, for the time is short.”

Again in 1963, Hagin saw this: ( I included this entire vision as a chapter in my new book, The Tumultuous2020s and Beyond.

For there came a dark hand up out of the ocean from the east, even from the Atlantic Ocean. It came up out of the sea as a hand and as it rose up into the air it became a dark cloud and it filled the whole atmosphere. Yea, and it swept in like a storm at sea. And I said, “Oh Lord! Oh Lord! Oh Lord! What’s the meaning of this?” And He spake unto me and said,

“Son, that is the darkness of atheistic communism that is sweeping across the nation—even in the minds of men in high places and politicians with great power. And this nation shall not grow more strong and you shall not have more liberty than you have now, but liberties that you’ve known and you’ve seen shall be seized and taken from you.”

And I looked again, and I could see upon the mountain a blotch, as though a bottle of ink had been spilled and spread out over several states in the south and east. And then I looked and I could see spots splotched all over the map and I said, “Lord, what meaneth this?”

And He said,

“Communistic inspired hatred among races shall cause greater turmoil than your nation has seen heretofore. Yea, it is not the will of God but men’s hearts are perverse and they walk without the love of God and seek to have their own way. And so it shall be worse than you have seen.”

Hagin also saw this:

And so then I looked into the spirit realm and I saw falling upon that mountain a ball of fire from heaven. The closer to the Earth, the bigger it got, and then when it came to the Earth it divided into small balls or sparks of fire, and it fell upon men. And I saw an army of men rise up, and it seemed as though their hands were fire. And there sat upon their heads a tongue of fire. (When I first saw it, it seemed like their whole heads were on fire but it was tongues of fire leaping.) And I said, “What meaneth this?”

And He said, “Before the worst shall come and the day of darkness encompasses there will be those who shall go and who shall carry the fullness of My truth and the fire, not only to the states of this nation but to many other places. For there is a work that must be done, first spiritually, before the Lord shall come.

“Now prepare ye your hearts, for the time is at hand and the beginning is now; and ye shall see and ye shall know for the hand of the Lord is upon you and many of you shall be used in these last days and the work shall progress.”

In 1965 Stanley Frodsham, companion to Wigglesworth, prophesied this:

With great judgments will I plead with the population of this country. Great darkness is coming upon the countries that have heard My gospel but no longer walk in it. My wrath shall come upon them. The darkness shall be so great and the anguish so sore that men shall cry out for death and shall not find it. There shall be a lingering death, famine and great catastrophes.

My wrath shall be manifested against all ungodliness. It shall come with great intensity. You have known my love but have not experienced My wrath or My severity. My judgments are literal and not a thing to be passed over lightly.

1965 Prophecy by Stanley Frodsham at Elim Bible Institute | Voice ...

Realize the severity of My judgments and My intense anger against the sin in My household. My judgments shall begin in My house, for I will cleanse My house that it be not a partaker of My wrath against the iniquities of the cities. Before I visit the nations in judgment; I will begin at My house. When I do cause My wrath to come upon the cities of the world, My people shall be separate. I desire a people without spot or wrinkle, and such will be preserved by Me in the time of My wrath, which will be coming upon all iniquity and unrighteousness. (this is the reason I wrote the book, Cleansing The Temple, because judgment begins in God’s house first). 

In 1968, a 90-year-old woman in Norway saw this:

An old woman of 90 from Valdres in Norway had a vision from God in 1968. The evangelist Emanuel Minos had meetings (services) where she lived. He had the opportunity to meet her, and she told him what she had seen. He wrote it down but thought it to be so unintelligible that he put it in a drawer. Now, almost 30 years later, he understands he has to share the vision with others.

The woman from Valdres was a very alert, reliable, awake and credible Christian, with a good reputation among all who knew her. This is what she saw:

I saw the time just before the coming of Jesus and the outbreak of the Third World War. I saw the events with my natural eyes. I saw the world like a kind of a globe and saw Europe, land by land. I saw Scandinavia. I saw Norway. I saw certain things that would take place just before the return of Jesus, and just before the last calamity happens, a calamity the likes of which we have never before experienced.

She mentioned four waves. For her complete vision go here.

And finally, in 2004, Oral Roberts saw a marvel that shook him:

Suddenly, in the clouds in the skies above New York City and the east part of the United States, and which hung there for quite some time and then spread out across America, without touching the ground, and then God diffused it away from America and sent it out to the nations of the earth. And I saw and I heard. What did I see? I saw something coming down from above: Smoke and vapor and blood, or it looked like that to my eyes, to my spiritual eyes.

To read his complete vision, go here.

We are living in a time when the fulfillment of these things is straining at the gate to come forth. The day is nearing when it will suddenly burst forth. Right now, the Lord is holding these things back to give the body time to prepare, but too many are wasting that time in false confidence, compromise and complacency.

We are in a process of cleansing the temple so that when the worst comes, the church shall be separate, and her impact shall be greater in quality and quantity.

THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s: JESUS TO THE AMERICAN CHURCH, MEET THE CONDITIONS AND YOU’LL SEE MY POWER

In December 2001, Sheikh Ahmad al Qataani, a leading Saudi cleric, appeared on a live interview on Al-Jazeera satellite television to confirm that Muslims were turning to Jesus in alarming numbers. “Every hour 667 Muslims become Christians,” Al Qataani stated. “Every day 16,000 Muslims become His followers, and every year 6 million Muslims decide to follow Jesus.”

Just check out this link: Leaving Islam

Amazing! Glory to God! This trend continues throughout nations in the Middle East, in southeast Asia, in North Africa, and a great harvest of souls continues to be reaped in China.

As one of the greatest examples, the nation of Iran, perhaps the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism, despite a crackdown on Christians in the land formerly known as Persia, is experiencing explosive growth and harvest. The growth of house churches and secret meetings is staggering. A few short years ago there were reports of 300,000 believers meeting in secret in Iran, but today it is estimated that there are more than 3,000,000 believers in Iran (at last count and growing daily). There is widespread disenchantment with Islam because in Islam there is no love, and no assurance of salvation, but following Jesus means they are assured we can spend all of eternity with Him in paradise.

AMERICA

What about America? Why aren’t we seeing a move of God and a great harvest like that here? I believe it is because the accountability factor is greater. To whom much is given much is required (Luke 12:48). The nations who are experiencing great signs and wonders, and an unprecedented harvest of souls as in the aforementioned examples, are those who have not been given as much but yet are experiencing great persecution. Meanwhile in America we are drawing back and not walking in the all the light we’ve been given.

Here is a great prophetic excerpt from Stanley Frodsham, a contemporary of Smith Wigglesworth that I have referred to before:

“With great judgments will I plead with the population of this country. Great darkness is coming upon the countries that have heard My gospel but no longer walk in it. My wrath shall come upon them.”

And then he prophesied this:

Before I visit the nations in judgment; I will begin at My house. When I do cause My wrath to come upon the cities of the world, My people shall be separate. I desire a people without spot or wrinkle, and such will be preserved by Me in the time of My wrath, which will be coming upon all iniquity and unrighteousness.”

TRUE DISCIPLES SUFFER PERSECUTION

True disciples don’t draw back during times of persecution, but the compelling love and reality of Jesus Christ keeps them moving forward. In America our materialism keeps us at ease. We must understand, however, that comfort and convenience are not the marks of true disciples and moves of God we see in Scripture, and what we are seeing in other nations. There is a price to pay.

Some might ask, “What then do we do—try and receive persecution?” The Bible tells us that the godly shall suffer persecution (2 Tim. 3:12). If you live right, persecution will come. Our problem is we try to make a good showing in the flesh so that we won’t suffer persecution that comes through the cross of Christ (Gal. 6:12). If more believers in the church in America would simply live godly lives and preach and live the cross, trust me, persecution would manifest.

Listen to the wise words of evangelist Maria-Woodworth Etter, who walked in great power and whose ministry manifested phenomenal signs and wonders right here in America more than a century ago.

“The mistake many of us make is to let the persecutions, and threatening and rage, and the powers of this world scare us and frighten us. We are not prepared to suffer. We don’t trust God and go to Him to vindicate His work for us. We too often draw back or compromise and “use wisdom” of the wrong kind, and are just as well satisfied when the power of God is not manifested so much, and the nice, quiet, imminently respectable modern Christians are not offended. We should be praying and looking for God to work more and manifest His power more, to draw back is not pleasing to God, and therefore, the marvels and miracles, the manifestations of His presence and power are to a great degree, lacking. Let us go forward. Meet the conditions. Come at peace with all the brethren with love for God and man. Come with the desire that Jesus may be glorified. Meet together in one accord.” 

What a word of wisdom for the hour we live in.

The conditions are repentance and prayer, a love for the brethren and all mankind and a desire to see Jesus glorified. Many American believers know they are not living right, not obeying God in fullness, drawing back from a truly consecrated walk, and so their conscience is unclean and defiled. They have no confidence and assurance before God and therefore cannot walk and act in faith. As a result, many prayers go unanswered.

ARE YOU PLEASING GOD?

Enoch of old had this testimony that he pleased God (see Heb. 11:5). Paul also made this his life’s quest. “Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him” (2 Cor. 5:9, NKJV). Jesus did everything to please the Father (John 8:29). Without faith we cannot please Him (Heb. 11:6), but without obedience our faith is dead.

“My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth” (1 John 3:18).

“By this we know that we are of the truth, and shall reassure our hearts before Him. For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart and knows everything. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, then we have confidence before God. And whatever we ask, we will receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight. And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another as He commanded us” (1 John 3:19-23).

As we walk in love and obedience to the light and knowledge we’ve been given, we will have a clean and undefiled conscience. It is then that our confidence and assurance before God will be strengthened. Our faith will then take hold of God and we will begin to see answers to our prayers. His power will flow in you and through you. He will infuse you with fresh courage and boldness, and you will bear witness with signs following of the unmistakable evidence of the resurrection and reality of Jesus Christ. Fear and conviction will fall on the unbelievers.

“Meet the conditions,” says the Lord, “and you will see the increased manifestation of My power.”

PREPARING FOR THE TUMULTUOUS 20s: SAVE THE CHURCH, SAVE THE NATION (Part 3)

Dutch Sheets said this in a recent article:

“A demonic tide of destruction has been unleashed upon our nation, and is taking ground at an increasingly rapid rate. Politically, economically and humanistically, there is an agenda to make this nation never again look the way it has looked before. Yet, God has not given up on America! He has great a plan and a purpose for this nation and He is calling on us to partner with His heart and His strategy in this critical hour.”

Sheets went on to compare the days we are living in to the days of Ezra, and how in response to people’s hunger and desperation  God raised up a company of leaders, among them, Haggai and Zecharias, two prophets, along with Joshua the high priest (representing God’s government), Zerubbabel the governor (representing civil government), and how they joined together to lead the people into reformation. All of them worked in agreement to move God’s people toward repentance and the restoration of the temple (see my new book, Cleansing The Temple, to discover the depth of purification and consecration that must happen to restore the glory of the Lord in His people). This is exactly where we are as a Church and a nation going into the 2020s.

The most exciting part of this account in Ezra is that in response to their obedience and righteous partnership, the Lord blessed them by decreeing that the glory of the latter house would be greater than the former (Hag. 2:9). This is my hope for the Church and the nation.

Refer to his article and be encouraged. God Is Not Done With America

Notice how the prophets, the high priest, and the governor worked together to lead the people into reformation (Hag. 1:1). This pattern is seen throughout the Old Testament. In God’s kingdom there is no separation of Church and state. We are to take the kingdom into every facet of society. When bad things happen in our country often the Church is to blame. Lack of watchfulness, prayerfulness, and obedience to God creates a vacuum for Satan to fill. When Obama, an enemy of the State in my opinion, was elected president, the Church was to blame. I know that statement will not win me more friends, but I will keep saying it. Millions of “Christians” voted for the most anti-Biblical president in American history.

We are in the mess we’re in now because too many professing Christians voted foolishly or didn’t vote at all. Hilton Sutton, the prophecy teacher, who is now with the Lord, conducted altar calls of repentance for Christians who voted for Obama. Even now, so many “Christians” have sided in with the corrupt ungodly media and have been brainwashed to hate President Trump, who has helped the Church’s cause perhaps more than any president in American history. Either discern and vote for righteousness or quit calling yourself a Christian.

You just watch. All hell will break loose in the next election. Refer to the conspiracy essay against Trump before his presidency that I wrote two blogs ago. Expect much more of that.

VERY SERIOUS TIMES

I must say this again. We are in a very serious time of judgment and cleansing right now. There are two cleansings in the ministry of Jesus. He cleansed the temple at the beginning (Jn. 2) and at the end of His public ministry (Mt. 21, Mk. 11, Lk. 19). In the end, this cleansing prepared the way for a new order that His resurrection and ascension would bring.

The Church is coming into a new order and will look vastly different than it has in recent times. Church leaders and ministers must be open to this change that is coming with both new wine and a new wineskin that will foreseeably evolve in times of persecution. There must be a cleansing so that the Lord’s glory can be restored in His people before the worst shall come. America is on the edge of judgment, and we must judge ourselves so that when judgment falls on the world, the Church will be separate, and her impact will be greater. I don’t know about you, but as a minister, I’m making heart-felt adjustments and changes in my own life.

We need to heed Stanley Frodsham’s prophetic words for we are nearer to their fulfillment than when he spoke them in 1965.

“With great judgments will I plead with the population of this country. Great darkness is coming upon the countries that have heard My gospel but no longer walk in it. My wrath shall come upon them.”

And then he prophesied this:

Before I visit the nations in judgment; I will begin at My house. When I do cause My wrath to come upon the cities of the world, My people shall be separate. I desire a people without spot or wrinkle, and such will be preserved by Me in the time of My wrath, which will be coming upon all iniquity and unrighteousness.”

THE TIME OF PLAYING CHURCH IS OVER

For the last five years on Charisma magazine and on my personal blog I along with a number of other voices have shared much on the dire state of things in our nation and the Church. Some have heeded these messages, but others continue to mock and scoff and resist truth on fire. Sadly, many of them will not survive the coming storm.

The time of playing church and being as little children and looking under the heavenly Christmas tree for the next gift is over, and we’ve entered into a time where we must put away childish things and become serious followers of our Master and understand that the war we are in is about to intensify.

Bittersweet times are ahead. We will choose our own way. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken as we enter into the times of the fear of the Lord. It is time to awaken from our slumber. You can be awakened with a kiss of kindness or shaken with the Lord’s severity. You must choose whom you will serve, for the Lord will distinguish again the righteous from the unrighteous, the holy from the profane, and the serious follower from the fan of Jesus.

Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore, if anyone CLEANSES HIMSELF from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.” (2 Tim. 2:19-21)

He that has ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit of God is saying to the Church.
