Put your ear to the ground and listen—when you hear the sound of hoofbeats in the distance, you know that disaster is coming. Start to pray, and start to prepare!
As the time of the end draws near, the book of Revelation warns about a seal opening and four horses being released to go throughout the earth. Their names are Conquest, War, Famine and Death, and their message is Judgment.
I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest. Rev. 6:1,2
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death…. Rev. 6:8
Already God is alerting his prophets with dreams and visions that warn of coming judgments on this country. For years, praying and prophetic people have prophesied weather disasters such as floods, tornados, hurricanes and earthquakes ahead, devastating pivotal points across the USA.
Just this week, Steve Quayle’s site is reporting a state of emergency declared in California as wildfires push thousands to evacuate their homes in Santa Barbara County. Another wildfire recently forced the evacuation of hundreds of people near Breckenridge, Colorado.
Even before 2017 reached its mid-way point this summer, the country had already read its share of news headlines proclaiming weather-related disasters: wildfires breaking out in Utah, flooding on the West Coast, severe storms and tornados in Arkansas, and landslides and mudslides in Idaho. A blistering heat wave broke a 131-year-old record in Los Angeles, and temperatures reaching 117 degrees broke a centuries-old heat record in Phoenix, Arizona
Western states experienced a “Killer winter” this year, as recently reported on Quayle’s site. Record low temperatures and snowfall as late as mid-June made this one of the coldest and snowiest winters in decades for Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.
No wonder biblical prophets and watchmen are looking at the book of Revelation and asking, Is this the beginning of the wrath that God said he would pour out on this earth? Is it going to get worse?
Worse just might be the fulfillment of a warning being published across the Internet of a comet crashing into the U.S. in this our own generation. Several nationally known pastors and prophets have gone public with visions of a massive asteroid striking the Earth, causing tsunamis that will devastate Puerto Rico and put the Southeastern part of the USA under water.
The idea of an apocalyptic comet desolating the country has become so popular with some young people that even funky bands have taken up the call, proclaiming in song that the end of everything is near. A jazzy London-based band calling itself “The Comet Is Coming” majors in what they call cosmic music with offerings named “Prophecy,” “Final Eclipse,” and “Death to the Planet.”
At the same time, some perfect-storm followers who have become weary of nightmare end-time scenarios aren’t shy about taking to the net and advising end-time prophets to keep their doom and gloom to themselves. Others, who still faithfully track earthquake and tsunami indicators, are fascinated by warnings like those of prophet Chuck Youngbrandt.
In a widely disseminated vision he had in 1973, Youngbrandt described a mighty earthquake in Chicago that is destined to shake the country’s foundations and awaken the New Madrid fault zone.
He predicted the massive quake hitting the Chicago area would be strong enough to cause flooding and tsunamis from the Great Lakes, affecting nine Midwestern states. The impact and flooding would flatten such cities as Milwaukee, St. Paul, St. Louis, Louisville, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Kansas City, Toledo and Detroit.
A disturbing dream about the Four Horsemen judgment and America’s future was shared on Finnish pastor Jouko Piho’s prophecy website. Evangelist and author Michael Boldea described hearing faint hoofbeats becoming louder as horses and their riders grew closer.
“The sound grew until it was a thundering roar of not one or two horses but what seemed like hundreds,” Boldea reported. “I felt as though the ground beneath me was shaking from the onrushing horses, and the sound became so loud that I suddenly awoke in my bed.”
The divine interpretation of the dream, as given to Boldea, was as follows: “What you heard were the chariots of war, and they are swiftly approaching. A new war is coming, unlike the present one.
“Dark days will soon come upon the land to which you are returning--(America). Even now their enemies plot and unite under one banner, and soon they will make their intentions known to the world.”
Boldea’s grandfather, the late Dimitru Duduman, was a Romanian preacher, pastor and one-time Bible smuggler who came to this country in 1974. In churches across the country he shared a disturbing prophecy he received from God about the future burning of America.
“It was not a dream or a vision,” Duduman insisted, “for I was awake just as I am now. The Lord showed me all of California, all of Florida and the state of New York. Then he took me to Las Vegas.
“As he showed me each state and city, the Lord said,’This is Sodom and Gomorrah. In one day it will burn.’ Then he took me back to the rock where we had been standing.”
Those who research online may come across any of several maps that have shaded areas where disasters are prophesied to hit in this country. These have been referred to as “maps of judgment,” showing whole regions devastated by earthquakes, tsunamis and other calamities. Some shaded areas indicate lands to be invaded by enemy troops.
As far back as 2008 Andrew Strom wrote on his Revivalschool website that many people sharing dreams of Florida and the southwest region--including low-lying parts of North Carolina--all pictured the areas as being under water.
“So it’s not just the West Coast that is under a giant tsunami warning, but also a large portion of the East Coast as well,” Strom reflected. He noted that other prophetic dreams and visions warn of enemy invasions, governmental crackdowns, and martial law.
Those who ask why God would send such disastrous judgments on this country may consider a warning in Proverbs against rejecting his guidance and wisdom:
“Since you rejected me when I called and would not accept my rebuke,….I will mock when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and troubles overwhelm you.” Proverbs 1:24-27
Though some may see such warnings and calamitous judgments as a reason to fear, evangelist Boldea stated his belief that true children of God will receive them for what they are, the forewarnings of a loving Father preparing His children for what is to come.
“God’s desire for us is not ignorance, but rather knowledge,” Boldea said, “so that we may prepare our hearts to draw closer to Him and make Him our place of refuge long before hardship forces us to seek his help.
“We all know that even in the very midst of danger, being in the center of God's will is literally the only place worth being – disaster or no disaster.”
