David Wilkerson Was Taken On Home Yesterday

The author of "The Cross & The Switch Blade", and pastor of Times Square Church, and the man who won Nicky Cruz to Jesus was killed in a car accident. Below is a writing he did in 1973 phrophesing what will take place in America. Are we there yet?

Wilkerson believed that in April 1973 he received a vision regarding the future of the United States and subsequently gave a sermon on the vision and published a book called The Vision. He has said that God revealed to him a great calamity which was going to befall America due to increase in sins such as homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, and greed.

Some of the details of this reputed vision were:

"Worldwide recession caused by economic confusion"
"At most a few more fat flourishing years, and then an economic recession that's going to affect the life style of every wage-earner in the world. The world economists are going to be at loss to explain what's happening. It's going to start in Europe, spread to Japan and finally to the United States."
There will be a move toward a worldwide, unified monetary system. The US dollar will be hit bad and it will take years for it to recover.
The only real security will be in real estate (until a somewhat later stage, at which point this apparent security will also disappear).
"Nature having labor pains"
Environmentalists will come under heavy criticism.
There will be major earthquakes.
There will be a major famine.
Floods, hurricanes and tornadoes will increase in frequency.
"A new kind of cosmic storm appearing as a raging fire in the sky leaving a kind of vapor trail."[4]
"A flood of filth and a baptism of dirt in America"
Topless women will appear on television, followed by full nudity.
Adult, X rated movies will be shown on cable television. Young people will gather at homes to watch this kind of material in groups.
Sex and the occult will be mixed.
There will be an acceptance of homosexuality, and the church will even say that it is a God-given gift.
"Rebellion in the home"
"I see the new number one youth problem in America and the world as hatred towards parents."[4]
"A persecution madness against truly Spirit filled Christians who love Jesus Christ"
There will arise a world church consisting of a union between liberal ecumenical Protestants and the Roman Catholic Church, using Christ in name only.
There will be a hate Christ movement.
There will be a spiritual awakening behind the Iron and Bamboo Curtains.
There will be another wave of riots.
There will be a fall in moral conduct.
There will be a new drug that will be popular with teenagers that will break down resistance and will encourage sexual activity.
Homosexual and lesbian ministers will be ordained and this will be heralded as a new breed of pioneer.
There will be nude dancing in church, but this will never be widespread.
There will be occult practices in churches.


They say the most segregated hour in America is at 11am on Sunday mornings, and I believe that. Could it be because of racism? Even in the church?

A fine mess, A just war, A little big, A little pregnant, A new classic, absolutely unsure, abundant poverty .....well you get the point, but here is one that I cringe at.............

A Lukewarm Christian!!! Can there be such a thing? This is the perfect example of "deception", and of the of the parable "the wheat & the tares"............Jesus is saying I had rather you be lost (cold) than pretending to be a christian!!!

Because you deceive others, especially the lost, who think all they have to do is do what you're doing, nothing, and be alright. Jesus says He will spit you from His mouth. Now I don't think He would spit a true beliver from His mouth, therefore, this luke warm person He is referring to is just as lost as last year's easter eggs.

Lukewarm Christians, the deadliest oxymoron of all.

Be Hot or be Cold!!!! Either you're saved or you're lost!!! There is no middle, no gray area!!! Think about it!!!

Please Read And Take The Challenge.

This is a Test:

God tells us to love, love, love!!! If Jesus asked you to give up everything you have and own and to follow HIm, and you answered His call, you may end up going straight to a cross (death), or to a foriegn country, or to your neighbor next door.

He may ask you to sit with sinners, and eat with drunks and whores. He may call you to preach, pastor or whatever, but be assured of this one thing; whatever He leads you to do, it will involve loving people right where they are and wherever He sends us. He is going to ask you to spend your time helping people who will not love you back and never show gratitude for what you gave up!!!

I am going to cut and paste part of I Corinthians 13 and ask that every time you see the word love, substitute your name there, for example, Love is patient, read James is patient, or Sue is patient, and (your name) is kind. Do this and tell me what you felt like when you finished.

I felt like a liar.

4 Love is patient, love is kind. Love does not envy, Love does not boast, Love is not proud. 5 Love does not dishonor others, Love is not self-seeking, Love is not easily angered, Love keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

If we say we love God, yet hate our brother, the truth is not in us.

Matthew 22:36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

I feel so unworthy as I read this, yet we should strive to be perfect (mature) in this thing called love, both agape (God) love and phileo (brotherly) love.

In His Love and Praying for You!!!
If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.

“God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”

Darrin Miller, Myself and a Handful of Others!!!

I've been reading the book "Radical" by David Platt and now am in the midst of reading Francis Chan's "Crazy Love". I must admit that both of these men's publications are very, good, and the church is in great need of what these two have penned.

I do not believe there has ever been a time in church history that the writings of both of these, would have been relevent and up to date. Many of the main stream denominational churches have lacked an understanding of the Omnipotence of God, the Atonement of Christ and what I feel most important, the indwelling of the Holy Spirt.

Many have died, after attending church all their lives and never knew just how big, how awesome and intricate their heavenly Father is (was). They perhaps, knew a little more about Jesus, but quiet possibly many of them never really beieved His words on how to become a follower (disciple). And assuredly, many church members have gone to the grave, NEVER utilizing the gift of the Holy Spirit, that the Father sent to us as the Comforter, Counseler and Companion.

Many who have died, as well as many who sit in our churches weekly haven't caught on to the person of the Spirit. Some seem frieghtened Of Him. Others look at you like a young calf looking at a new gate, at anyone who mentions being indwelled or filled with the Holy Ghost.

Yet these two men, David and Francis have expounded on these subjects in a God directed way in each of their writings, and I admire them and am so appreciative that they are on the top sellers list and selling millions of copies. Praise the Lord.

But I have to say this also, Darrin, myself and a few other young Baptist preachers/pastors were teaching and preaching the very same thing week after week to what seemed to unhearing ears. Maybe because we didn't have hundreds in our small churches, or the fact we just wasn't being connected to, I don't know, but we did it. Did we see the results as these have, I didn't.

A few got it, but most just said I was expecting to much out of them. I probably wasn't loving enough when I spoke, I know that, but as I refered to myself else where, I was just ignorance on fire. Other preachers said that I was wasting my time, Deacons called me on the carpet because I taught them the truth. I was reprimanded by mentors, and older pastors. They say I tore up the church, but I wasn't trying to, rather I was trying to stir them up.

Anyway, I appreciate these two fine young Chritian men, but I have to say, and not out of jealousy, but out of standing up for some fine young preachers that attended school together back in the mid eighties, that what they have written WAS preached by many of us.

God Bless all of God's people who are truly sold out to His ways, and help others to see how much more they could have if they would only hear.

This Week

What a blessing and a surprise to see my daughter Melanie and her two children pulling into the driveway, from KY. They are not going to get to stay long, but anytime with them is better than no time.

I love my children as no man can. I love my grandbabies so much, as they too bring me much joy, and we have another one on the way.

I didn't have a lot of time to learn from my dad, as he was taken from me at the age of 17, but the main thing he taught me through his actions, was love for his kids. He loved us.

I pray that my own children see that in me, and learn that and many more positive attributes from their father.

If Moses Had The Internet.

For The Love Of God.

Loving people is sometimes difficult and I've crossed paths with a few that just didn't want to be loved, heck I've been that way a few times in my struggling life. I still remember that saying from 40 years ago that was going around at the time, "Love is a verb." It's action and sometimes a reaction, but love is an essential to people. At times, just like I didn't want to be loved on, I have those days when I want everyone to love me.

Jesus said that there is a couple things that we can do that we can hang all the laws on, and that is love God with all our heart, minds and being, and love our neighbors as we love ourselves. That is God love, agape love. If you love Him more than anyone or anything else in this world, I mean more than mate, children and money, then it is so much easier to love your neighbor, because you are seeing that person as God sees them, one of His creations that needs to know that He loves them, and He does it through us.

Love Through Him,

He Ascended From Heaven!!!!

Several different kinds of religious people were sitting around talking about how we all are seeking the same God, just named different, and by different paths, like God sits on a mountain top & we are all trying to get up to Him. Then a believer of the Bible, says wouldn't it be cool, if He came down to us, instead of us trying to get to Him. They all agreed, and then the beliver said let me tell you about Jesus.

Who We Really Are!!!

This is the reality about humanity. We are each born with an evil, God-hating heart. Genesis 8:21 says that every inclination of man's heart is evil from childhood, and Jesus' words in Luke 11:13 assume that we know that we are evil. Many people say, "Well, I have always loved God," but the reality is, no one has. We may have loved a god that we made up in our minds, but the God of the Bible, we hate.

In our evil we rebel against God. We take the law of God, written in His Word and on our hearts, and we disobey it. This is the picture of the very first sin in Genesis
3. Even if God has said not to eat from the tree of knowledge, we are going to do it anyway.

We spurn our Creator's authority over us. God beckons storm clouds, and they come. He tells the wind to blow and the rain to fall, and they obey immediately. He speaks to the mountains, "You go there," and He says to the seas, "You stop here," and they do it. EVERYTHING IN ALL CREATION RESPONDS IN OBEDIENCE TO THE CREATOR....UNTIL WE GET TO YOU AND ME. We have the audacity to look God in the face and say, "No."

It Will Happen!!!

I am so burdened today, for the lost souls that engulf me daily, and as anyone who knows me, knows that I will witness to them, tell them above Jesus, how to be saved and filled with the Holy Spirit, but the apathy and ignorance in their voices and body language seems to overshadow the truth. Yet, I know and believe that greater is He that's in me than he that's in the world and though it appears as I'm wasting my breath and time, I know that conviction is falling.

When I see a rise in their resistance, hear a bitterness in their voices, and read contemptment in their words, I know that God is working and I pray harder and harder for them. I pray that they will seek Him, while He may be found.

I may have faltered many times in my prayer life, that at times has been infested with doubt, yet I know that there is power in prayer, power that can not be masked nor explained away. Watch this page, read this page and you too will see. It's not me, it's Him, the Holy Spirit. He is convicting the sinner, the lost, the ones that the world has damned, the ones whom Christ died for. Watch and pray, for it may get darker, before the Son breaks through these clouds of dissention and unbelief, but it will come, and we will give God all the glory.

God WILL HAVE A PEOPLE SOLD OUT!!! Whether us or not and he will always answer those prayers and He will convict and draw people to Him. So agree with Him and me for the salvation of these who dare not to believe. Pray with me that the scales may fall from their eyes, and their hearts would be softened, and filled with faith. Pray with me. Pray that they will see the eternal truths. Pray that these that put their faith in themselves and the temporary things in their lives, will be liberated. Pray with me.
"Oh God, you are my God; earnestly, I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water." Psalm 63:1

This Rang My Bell

Stand up on a mountain, make sure that your heard. Make sure all the sinner's hear every single word.. I know a guy, he's the only reason why, my sin's are why he died, he gave a blind man sight, he's my savior and my friend, his name is Jesus Christ and he's coming back again.... Amen!!!!!!!!!

You Ain't Seen His Work Yet, Just Man's Attempt!!!!

If the church you are attending or have attended in the past, were to have the pastor to get up this Sunday morning and read a romance novel, told feel good stories and sang country music songs, rather than reading the Bible, preaching against sin and singing worship and praise music, would there be a difference in the outcome of the service? Would there be any more repentence, any more salvations, or life changing experiences?

The reason many of you don't attend church service, don't want to attend church service and have no intention to ever attend church services, is because there is no power there. You have never experienced the moving of the Holy Spirit, you have never seen God work, all you have wiitnessed is a bunch of ordinary people, doing ordinary stuff that has shown you and the world that, "anybody" can do that.

Question, If you where never to mention God in your church services again, would the church still continue on? Would there be a change, a difference? Or would it be staus quo?

Does your place of worship, just tack the name of God on to the people's strategies? Is He just an add on, to make us feel like we are doing something positive and to make us feel safe?

What is strangly missing in churches is His power. He is just a tag to our programs, personalities and professionals. Churches are carrying on without the power of God, but for what reason.

That is why you unchurched don't like organizated religion, or coming to the house of prayer, or say to me, "I don't want nothing to do with that shit", because all you have ever seen is the workings of man!!! Man's strategies. Man's programs. Man's attempt at doing what they feel is correct. But where is His power?

I am praying right now for God to do something in your life that cannot be explained away as man's doing. I'm praying that eyes are opened that you will see the eternal, and get your eyes off of the temperal.

It is eveident that the Holy Spirit is missing in our church buildings, and as we read in Revelation 3:20 we see why, as Jesus Himself is standing on the OUTSIDE of the church in Laodicea, knocking on the door saying, "Here I am. Let me in."

Read the Book of Acts, in Chapter 1 there were 120 disciples, then Jesus ascended to the right hand of the Father, and the Holy Spirit came down to aide the believers with their mission of spreading the good news and seeing souls converted, saved, and in about 2 days after the power fell, the church grew by 3,000 people. WHERE IS THE POWER??? Those believers in that upper room were not plotting strategies, or mapping out programs they were praying for the Power to fall, and He did, and you can read the rest.

You can say your church (your place of worship is you), that you can worship anytime, AMEN, but remember Christ died for the church, and the Word says forsake not the assembling of yourselves together on the Lord's day to WORSHIP HIM. You say you don't need a bunch of people to help you worship God, right on, but how much more power we would have IF we got together and prayed as one to the One as they did in the upper room?

I'm praying and willing to give up the temporal for the eternal. I'm praying for you to experience the REAL power of an almighty God, I'm asking God RIGHT NOW to cause YOU to step right up in the middle of the power of the HOLY SPIRIT. God knock'em down, if it will cause them to look up.


P.S. I'm not going to pass the plate today, as this one is on me.
