Forgive Me

As those of you who follow my blog know, last year I wrote a message in which I said that Obama would not be reelected. Obviously I was wrong.

This was part of the message:

"In Tom Clancy's latest fiction novel "Dead Or Alive", he says about a mythical President (even though he did not know he was speaking prophetically). 'So what happens when a weak man of flawed character is faced with a cascade of catastrophes? He crumbles of course, and with him the nation'. So also will Obama, a weak man of flawed character, crumble when God's wrath is poured out upon this nation shortly".

That part will still come to pass. The part I was wrong about was the timing of it. I felt that the Lord showed me that it would happen before the election, leading to Obama's defeat. Yes, I missed the Lord on that. It's something that no matter how hard I try to guard against it, it happens from time to time. I remember that even David Wilkerson, who was God's foremost prophet to this nation, missed it from time to time.

Why do prophets miss the Lord from time to time? I think the main reason is that we feel a responsibility to warn the people when we see trouble coming - that is the job of a watchman, which is what we are. But as human beings, sometimes we go further than we should or even miss the Lord completely. Sometimes we try to fit the warning into what we think God's time frame is going to be - that is what usually causes us to err. Sometimes we let our own thoughts and feelings come into play. Other times I'm sure that God deliberately lets us err because that keeps us humble, humility being an essential element of a prophet. There is no place in our training that allows any type of pride, God makes sure of that.

So this was another case in which I missed the Lord. It's not the first and I'm sure it won't be the last. In my heart I want to try to let people know when I see calamities coming so that they can be prepared. But, as Jeremiah said in Jeremiah 17:9 "The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?" Certainly not I. All I can do is continue to seek the Lord and try to let the people know what I feel He has shown me. When I am wrong please forgive me and have patience with me. When I am right then thank the Lord that He warned you ahead of time.

This also is a good lesson for everyone to follow no man, follow the Lord only. Men are human and make mistakes, no matter how spiritual they are. Become a disciple of no one but Jesus.

Hurricane Sandy

On September 1 last year I wrote a message titled "Continuing Catastrophes" on this blog. In it I stated that I believed a hurricane was going to hit this nation like the "fist of God". I thought it was going to happen within a few weeks of writing that message.

Soon after I wrote that message I was speaking to a dear brother-in-Christ who is one of God's hidden prayer warriors, along with his wife. He was telling me that sometimes God had them praying against storms and other "natural" catastrophes, and that sometimes the prayers of the faithful caused disasters to be diverted or lessened.

That was the case a few weeks later when an epic storm hit the sparsely populated coast of Alaska instead of the northwestern states of this nation which are heavily populated. I stated at that time that there may be another hurricane that would hit this nation in the near future and cause great destruction. That happened this week when Sandy hit the northeast coast and caused untold damage. Many were killed and it is estimated that the cost of Sandy will exceed $20 billion. It literally hit this nation like the "fist of God".

What I found interesting is that it hit one of the largest bastions of liberalism and evil in this nation - the Northeast. Do you think the people of that area will see it as God's judgment? Of course they won't. They think it was simply a "natural disaster" caused by "Mother Nature". They will not turn from their wicked and evil ways and repent. This is simply a taste of God's wrath for them, the worst is yet to come for that area of this nation.

While I was pondering all this, the thought came to me that the next area to be dealt with will be the West Coast. In "Continuing Catastrophes" I wrote: "Next I believe that major earthquakes will begin to shake this nation to its very core. The one that hit the east coast a few weeks ago was nothing compared to what is coming. God has had enough of the wickedness in the USA and nothing will stop His judgment upon this land."

I believe that we will soon see one or more major earthquakes strike the West Coast and probably other areas of this country. I also believe that there will be a sports stadium completely destroyed by one of these earthquakes and thousands upon thousands of people in that stadium will be killed. Judgment is upon the USA. God have mercy on His servants.
