THEY TRIED TO WARN US


 

Oral Roberts heard the voice of God in a vision speaking to the lukewarm American church. God told him,

“THERE IS A WASTING OF MY POWER, THERE IS A FAILURE TO GRASP THE END TIME. AND THE CHURCH: THEY ARE COMING TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY MORNING, MOSTLY FOR THEMSELVES. AND THE PREACHERS, FOR THE MOST PART, ARE NOT REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH.

“THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE LITTLE GROUP THAT IS THERE. AND THEY SING THEIR SONGS AND THEY GET UP AND PREACH.  WHEN 9-11 STRUCK, THERE WAS A FEAR THAT CAME INTO THE HEARTS OF EVEN MY PEOPLE OF THE CHURCH, AND OF THE PEOPLE OUTSIDE THE CHURCH. AND MILLIONS, THE FOLLOWING SUNDAY OR TWO, RUSHED TO GO TO CHURCH.

“WHEN THOSE PLANES OF THE TERRORISTS STRUCK THE TWIN TOWERS IN NEW YORK CITY, AND THEY GRADUALLY CAME TUMBLING DOWN, IT WAS SOMETHING BIGGER THAN PEOPLE HAD EVER SEEN, BUT IT IS NOTHING IN COMPARISON TO WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE SECOND COMING OF MY SON.

“MY CHURCH WAS NOT PREPARED TO DEAL WITH THAT, AND PEOPLE CAME TO CHURCH AND THEN NOTHING MUCH HAPPENED, AND THEY DROPPED BACK.  AND MANY OF THEM WENT BACK TO THEIR BARS…

“BUT THE PREACHERS WERE NOT PREPARED, AND MOST OF THEM DIDN’T EVEN PREACH ON IT, AND DID NOT EVEN TALK ABOUT IT BEING THE SIGN OF SOMETHING THAT IS COMING−HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TIMES BIGGER.”

“NOW, THERE’S GOT TO BE PREACHING WITH FIRE IN THE BELLY!  THERE HAS GOT TO BE AN ANOINTING OF THE HOLY GHOST. MY CHURCH HAS TO WAKE UP−BECAUSE OF WHAT I’M REVEALING IN THIS SIGN, THAT “EVERY” EYE IS GOING TO SEE, “EVERY” EAR IS GOING TO HEAR. THEY’LL SEE THIS THING. THEY WILL NOT NECESSARILY KNOW WHAT IT IS, BUT IT IS A WAKE UP CALL ABOUT THE SECOND COMING OF MY SON!”

David Wilkerson saw a coming storm of persecution and violence.  He saw devastation in New York with fire and massive death and rampant immorality. Few believed him, because at that time unemployment was less than 5%, and because Disney had just taken over the seedy areas of Times Square and had made it family oriented.  All of his words have come to pass.

In 1998 David Wilkerson solemnly warned the compromised American church and instructed those with a heart for God to get out of their dead churches. He also instructed them to seek God’s comfort and protection from what was about to come upon America.

“The majority of churchgoers today soundly reject all prophetic warnings of a coming storm. Indeed, the American church today is the most blatant “feel good” church in all of history. But, like Israel, we’re only experiencing the calm before the storm!

“Likewise today, Christians by the multiple thousands are casting off the yoke of Christ, tossing aside all limits and restrictions. This attitude is prevalent in many of the books and magazines you find in Christian bookstores. It’s almost as if our leaders are saying, “Relax! God isn’t hard. He’s our Daddy, we’re all his kids, and we’re meant to have a good time. Don’t let anyone disturb your fun!””

However, David also said that God gives advance warning and provides protection:

 “Moreover, God is faithful to speak in times of prosperity, just before the fury of His judgment strikes. While the storm clouds are still gathering, He raises up prophetic voices all over the land. And, according to Scripture, whenever a sinful nation was prosperous and at peace, God told His prophets to warn that the good times soon would end: “…the Lord hath cried by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity…” (Zechariah 7:7).

“Beloved, if we’re going to face the coming storm, then we need to be prepared so that nothing disturbs our spirit. And the only way to do that is to spend time in the Father’s presence, beholding His face. We have to be shut in with Him, on our knees, until we’re thoroughly persuaded He’s at our right hand!

“God is clearly telling us, “Don’t be moved or agitated by anything you see. Keep your eyes focused on Me, and you’ll retain your joy!” and  “…Thou shalt make me full of joy with Thy countenance” (Acts 2:28).

“We always have to keep in mind that God’s only purpose in lovingly calling us back to Himself is to protect us in such times of storm. Yet often in Biblical history, when He gave these warnings, the people refused to listen: “He sent prophets to them, to bring them again unto the Lord; and they testified against them, but they would not give ear.” (2 Chronicles 24:19)

“Almost always, God’s people grew weary of these warnings. This was especially true if a prophet cried out about a coming storm over a period of years: the society ignored the warning and just continued to be prosperous and at peace. Over time, the people simply switched off the prophet’s voice. They simply didn’t want to hear it anymore.”

 Steve Hill saw a vision of a coming storm that had the potential to destroy millions of Christians because of false teachings that are rampant throughout the church.

“The Lord began to speak. I trembled. The fresh, new snow represented the false teaching that is steadily falling on the ears of the body of Christ. It has been, and is, a heavy snowfall. The skiers represented believers and non-believers, trusting the resort for a safe and memorable experience. As Christians, we have been warned to be sober and vigilant (1 Peter 5:8). However, the present ‘awe-inspiring’ teachings have lulled many into a deeper sleep.

“The layers upon layers of snow have been steadily covering the solid traditional Truth of Christ. The truth is that foolish teaching in these last days will become so fashionable even the most dedicated believer could become deceived (Matt. 24:24). It’s happening before our eyes. One spiritual leader said the other day: “You guys are old-fashioned ‘holiness,’ we are modern day ‘grace.’ You live in bondage, while we can do anything we want.”

“Pastors and teachers worldwide have succumbed to heretical teachings including universal reconciliation, the deification of man, challenging the validity of the Word of God− including His judgments, and even lifting any boundaries, claiming His amazing grace is actually “amazing freedom.” The message seems to be, “You are free to live according to your own desires.” Sound familiar? “They had no king and did what was right in their own eyes.” (Judges 17:6) These popular self-proclaimed ministers of the gospel are covering the “slopes” and will be held accountable for the spiritual death of millions.”

 

 America’s Last Call 

 Kenneth Hagin:

“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.””

 Smith Wigglesworth:

“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, 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.

“There are in the world two classes of believers. There are believers that are disobedient, (or I ought to say there are children that are saved by the power of God, but are disobedient children), and there are children that are, just the same, saved by the power of God, who all the time are longing to be more obedient.

“Up to this present time the Lord’s word is for us, “Hitherto, ye have asked nothing.” Surely you people, who have been asking great things from God for a long time, would be amazed if you entered into it with clear knowledge that it is the Master, it is Jesus, Who has such knowledge of the mightiness of the power of the Father, of the joint union with Him, that nothing is impossible for you to ask. Surely it is He alone Who could say “Hitherto, you have asked nothing.”

 SUMMARY

 Oral Roberts was warning us about people who go to church only for themselves, and of preachers who care nothing about reaching the world for Christ.   How can we deny that this is true?  We have reached the point where so many Christians are unteachable and Pastors are oblivious to the Great Commission.

 David Wilkerson was trying to teach us that as God’s remnant in a storm of deception, violence, and persecution, we can be safe. We can even thrive.

 Steve Hill placed a great deal of emphasis on the massive amount of false teaching that would rob the church of her preparation, blind her to the right choices she should make, and leave her vulnerable so that she is destroyed along with the world. But he also provided the hope that repentance and true submission to God would provide a shelter from the storm.

 Kenneth Hagin was warning us that America had a final call.  I believe we are at that call right now.  He saw buildings burning and cities inundated by the judgment of God. However, he also offered great hope that the people of God would do even greater things than the apostles did in the Book of Acts.

 Smith Wigglesworth emphasized the need for purifying, holiness, and separation in the church. He urged us to wake up, ask for the mighty power of God, and then nothing would be impossible to us.

Now, listen with all of your heart, with all of your might, and with zero distractions. This storm will damage every compromised carnal Christian.   Jesus told us that the foolish man who built his house on the sand was someone who had heard the words of Christ but would not do them. And the house fell, and great was its fall. That is the key right now. All of these warnings are for Christians.

So what do we do to prepare for this storm?  What steps do we take to obey the words of warning that come to us first from the Bible, and then from God’s prophets?   Distilling the common threads that run through these five men’s prophecies, I found these steps:

1. Stop following preachers that are weakening you, using you, and deny that there is a storm coming. Get out of the churches that look like nightclubs. Get away from the seductive teaching that denies hell, the blood of Christ, the inerrancy of the Bible, and the urgency of the Great Commission.  Don’t follow their teaching.  For heaven’s sake, do not give them any money.   Do not fellowship with believers who condone drunkenness or immorality.   This compromised Christianity is precisely the house built on the sand that the storm will destroy.

2. Press into God. The common thread that runs through the messages of these five prophets is a call to intimacy with God. The result of that intimacy would be a special grace and power to live through anything that is coming in these last days.

Each one of them referenced a secret place in God that was available to us, and would create a force field of peace and joy and boldness that would deflect every lie, every threat, and every attack.  All of these men spoke of a level of power that would be revealed to the last generation of Christians on the earth.  They describe a time of great extremes where wickedness and righteousness would ripen together.

Those who choose to press into God will embody a faith that cannot be shaken by any threat or headline.  They will have a presence of God continually upon their life.  Not just some of the time, but all of the time.   Disasters will go on around them, and regardless of how cataclysmic the events in the world become, they will be conveyed safely into the presence of God.

3. Enter the era of ‘extravagant asking.’ Wigglesworth’s reference to ‘extravagant asking’ is a key to the final revival in the history of the world. He quoted Jesus, Who said “Hitherto, you have asked nothing, ask what you will and My Father will give it to you, that your joy may be full.” All five of these prophets hold out a hope for America.   They are trying to sober us up so that we can ask God to spare our nation. We do not have to have fires, riots, and God’s judgment upon America, even though they are well deserved.

We can ask and receive resources beyond anything we’ve ever seen before.  We can preach with devastating conviction that can pierce hearts, and break the chains of the most heinous sins of our time.  We can ask and receive signs and wonders that exceed what the apostles saw.   We can watch God fill the coffers of anointed ministries beyond anything we can imagine or have ever seen before.

Finally: Truly God’s word is this, “I set before you life and death.” You can walk away from this message and continue the denial that pervades the church, but I promise you, this storm is coming. You can choose life−not just any life−but the greatest life that God has offered any generation!

  1. God has His way in the whirlwind and in the storm. His prophetic warnings are designed to prepare you, making you stable, steady, and ready. Fix your gaze on Jesus or you will start sinking. Nahum 1:3

  2. Nothing aggravates me more then preachers who don’t want to get political, and said they felt Obama honored the presidency, but not Trump. This was a church I felt at home with, but now I am wondering. He said this on his personal Facebook, and I’m wondering if he feels that way, can he be trusted to preach?

    I have never heard anything that went against what was written in the Bible when he’s preached, but any insight on this much appreciated.

    Another great post Mario, thank you!

    1. Obama DISGRACED and DEFILED the Presidency. Just look at what he left behind: ROTTEN FRUIT OF THE WORST KIND.

      1. Exactly, thats how I feel! I was appalled that a pastor would even say that! I don’t see how you could look at everything the Obama terms did that was against the Word, against our constituition and say he honored the Presidency. Thank you, megagenius.

    2. Sounds like another pastor with zero discernment who doesn’t seek the Lord fervently in prayer to hear His voice. Also a very blinded pastor. Not telling you what to do but seek the Lord but his words are shocking and show his heart and lack of wisdom. Obama was a horrible president who promoted abortion etc. Now is a time of separation which includes fleeing churches that lead people astray. God will show you. God bless.

    3. Consider asking your pastor if he can imagine President Trump putting his feet up on the desk in the Oval Office.

      Then flee the church.

  4. Pastor Marillo, this is an excellent writing. The best! Direct and to the point! So accurate! God called me out of a dead Pentecostal church in 1996 where I was teaching to a home ministry and blessed me with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. I saw more miracles and signs and wonders in my home than in that church: people were saved, healed, and received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. I have prayed for decades to be around TRUE Christians and it never seems to happen. For almost 2 years now I have been isolated with God and my Bible and I have had more visions and Words from God than ever! He is even speaking thru my poetry about something coming and to retain the faith! He said that during this pandemic he was eradicating and replacing. We need to stay away from the daily negative news. Negativity destroys DNA!

  5. In II Chron. 18:7, King Ahab said he hated the prophet Micaiah, because “He never prophesies anything good to me, but always bad.” Ahab was evil. So when Micaiah spoke the truth to him, Ahab called the truth evil! Who would have ever dreamed that the truth spoken from America’s pulpits would be deemed “evil?” Back in the early 90’s, some of us who attended a monthly “sit at his feet” meeting with Leonard Ravenhill in Lindale Texas made arrangements for Brother Ravenhill to speak to a group of about 40 pastors who felt that they were the “movers and shakers” of their day. These pastors rejected his message and called him “legalistic.” Needless to say, we were in shock at their response to the message of this great Man of God and revivalist! God needs “truth tellers” for our generation!That old dragon, satan, is breathing his fire upon our nation at this moment.. But thank God He said He would pour out His Spirit upon all flesh in the last days! Believing for a fresh 2020 Wind of Pentecost, and Fresh Fire in America’s pulpits!!

  6. I’m so disheartened that our pastors do not even talk about what is going on in the country, the loss of our freedoms, the danger we are in, in so many ways, the violence, the crime… I feel they are still preaching to the choir. And then, there’s the music…how did we lose the ability to actually worship through music? I just cannot get into most the the songs that are sung. We have not gone back to in-person services yet, and I heard we are going to be required to pre-register. I will not register for church. If all the churches bow to the State and make parishoners register, then I will no longer have a church. I will use the electronic church as I did for several years when I came back to the Lord, and I was taught, spiritually fed, and grew in Him. I did find a church, and it was great back then, but it has changed. I’m aware the government already knows more about us than we know about ourselves, but I will not bow my knee to Baal before I walk into the church building.

  7. For such a time as this! I always got DavidWilkerson’s messages each month and when he passed so suddenly I was so sorry I had not saved every one. I never doubted his warnings. I am very soon to be 83 and am so thankful to have found your ministry through following Lance Wallanou (sp?). God bless all who believe the prophets who are bringing us the Spirit’s directions in these last days. God bless you.

  8. Oh yes they surely tried to warn us. I remember it all! I thank God for you to bring it to our remembrance! God Bless you and your family!

  9. Having just watched Mario on Lance Wallnau’s Pentecost Webinar on You Tube I would like to share some thoughts which I also posted on one of Lance’s videos:

    Christians in terms of the US population are a majority. The weakness of Christianity is that with over 800 denominations it is so divided, even within each of those denominations, therefore it has no power. As Jesus said, “A house divided can not stand”.

    If the moving parts of a motor car or any machine are not meshing or working together, that vehicle or appliance will not function, even if all its parts are in pristine condition. That is Christianity’s dilemma today. If the ‘body of Christ, like a physical body is not working in one accord, the body will die. If the blood does not circulate throughout the whole body, infection or death will occur.

    A highly motivated group of people, small in number can overthrow a country or even establish an empire as did happen in history with both the Israelites and the early Christians. Also on Satan’s side there have been many evil nations and empires who came about likewise, including the Nazi and Communist regimes.

    Today all sorts of highly motivated ‘minorities’ on Satan’s side are taking over America like the Vandals, Goths and Huns who sacked Rome. Christians have allowed this to happen, because instead of being vigilant and being the ‘watchmen over the city’, they have turned a blind eye and committed the sin of omission.

    Where the early Christians turned a Pagan empire into a Christian empire, today’s Christians have allowed a foremostly Christian nation to become a Pagan nation, allowing ‘child sacrifice’, immorality, injustice, corruption, and basically trampling the Ten Commandments underfoot. America is today’s Sodom and Gomorrah.

    Without Christians uniting and coming together as many groups of people throughout history have done, America will fall. Each and every Christian will be held accountable should that happen, because God told his people to be one, as did Jesus in his prayer, John 17:20-23. Also he said ‘where two or three are gathered in my name I am there in the midst of them’.

    Furthermore:

    Luke 13:34 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, killing the prophets and stoning those who are sent to you! How often would I have gathered your children together as a ‘hen gathers her brood under her wings’, and you would not!”

    If the ‘God of Israel is One’, then so too should His people be one. No more division and disunity like the Hebrews who rebelled against God and Moses and were put to the sword. Ex 32:25-29. If you do not unite, your fate will be as the generation who did not receive Jesus. Not receiving Jesus’ words and rejecting them is the same as rejecting the man himself. Are you keeping Jesus words and commandments as in John 17:20-23?

    Mt 23:34 “Therefore I send you prophets and wise men and scribes, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from town to town, 35 that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of innocent Abel to the blood of Zechari′ah the son of Barachi′ah, whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar. 36 Truly, I say to you, all this will come upon this generation”.

    Christianity herself, on the eve of Pentecost stands in the position of being the offering to be placed on the altar as Jesus was, repenting for not keeping God’s and Jesus’ words, so that God’s House has stood neglected and empty, and God and Jesus could not make their home with us because we withdrew our heart and labour to pursue our own ‘kingdoms’ not God’s Kingdom.

    We have not been attending the hearts of God and Jesus with the ‘Zeal of the Lord of Hosts’ according to their words and commandments as Adam and Eve also failed to do. We have paid lip service to “Our Father who art in Heaven, His Kingdom come, His will be ‘done on earth’ as it is in heaven”.

    Somehow we neglected the ‘on earth’ part! That’s the problem when you are just focused on a spiritual kingdom and not a substantial kingdom in the physical world and ‘seeking first His kingdom of righteousness’, including justice, mercy and faithfulness.

    Somehow Christians have managed to blend a type of ‘spiritual’ (no responsibility) Christianity together with seeking mammon, as the ‘prescription’ for doing God’s Will. That’s like the Romans who worshipped many gods and were constantly seeking ‘coin’.

    Christians need to acquaint themselves with James 2, post haste.

    To conclude, I would like to encourage everyone to listen to Kim Clements words and prophesy, least we forget: Trump 2020 // Prophet Kim Clement Prophecy (on You Tube)

  10. Matthew 24:12 New King James Version (NKJV)
    12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

  11. This post is an oldy but goody, and I mean that in a very humble way, as the words of these great men of God need to be heard and read on a regular basis. Thank you MMM!

  13. I’m overwhelmed you pick these outstanding, humble men, whose stories I have read and read two to three times! I have many books on all these men of God who were used mightily for the Gospel. I accepted Jesus in 1990, when I was 50, received the baptism of speaking in tongues and literally was in Calvary Chapel out in Lake HAVASU, Az. But wanted so much more so attended Bible study with Charismatic and Pentecostal Pastors and my whole life was turn upside down. Oral Roberts came to the Church I was attending, Life Church, in Laguna Niguel, just spent every Sunday talking to us all about his healing lines, preaching and teaching before he passed up to Heaven. What a great man, Kenneth Hagin, another great story in his bringing up. What you have done Mario is great and I will cherish this post. Thank you and the warning signs are here! Susan
