New York in Flames? If God Sent a Vision...
If God wanted to send a message to modern day USA, who would he use to deliver it? I should think that it would be someone whose life gives gravity to their words. Someone who has walked the walk is more credible when they talk the talk. By that standard, there are few more believable prospects than David Wilkerson.
In the 1970s, Wilkerson left a prosperous suburban church because he felt that God was calling him to minister to inner city youth. His story is documented in the book and film "the Cross and the Switchblade". Actor Pat Boone played the role of Wilkerson in that movie.
Wilkerson has faithfully continued his calling from the Church on Times Square and other venues since that time. There have been no public scandals, just a life well spent. Now gray-haired, Wilkerson believes that God has spoken to him again, this time with a dire warning.
Saturday he issued an email to his list that begins with these words..."I am compelled by the Holy Spirit to send out an urgent message to all on our mailing list, and to friends and to bishops we have met all over the world.
AN EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. IT IS GOING TO BE SO FRIGHTENING, WE ARE ALL GOING TO TREMBLE - EVEN THE GODLIEST AMONG US."
He has warned that he has seen New York in flames and has urged people there and in major cities to stockpile a 30 supply of food, water, and other essentials.
While Wilkerson has warned of rioting in New York city for years, he is now saying that it will happen near-term.
