> > known him for a quarter of a century - he hears very
> > clearly from God and has been giving very accurate
> > prophetic words to many, many people, especially
> > unsuspecting strangers who come walking into our church!
> > But first here is the gist of what he told his
> > congregation:
> > - There will be large chunks of
> > hailstones falling from the sky; record-breaking drastic
> > weather changes occurring worldwide. A cyclone and a
> > hurricane are on their way. One more powerful earthquake
> > will take place in China and close to a million people will
> > be dead as a result. The Lord told him that this
> > earthquake will come about because the Chinese government
> > has long persecuted and put to death many of its own people
> > for their Christian faith and the blood of these martyrs
> > have been crying out to God for vengeance.
> > Yet another powerful earthquake will hit Japan resulting in
> > the Japanese government having to recall loans, stocks and
> > bonds from the US thus giving rise to the downfall of the
> > US Dollar. However, the biggest of all earthquakes will
> > occur in the States, not within the earthquake belt but in
> > the least expected place resulting in the collapse of the
> > stock market. The time has come for the judgment of
> > God to fall upon its people against the sins of
> > homosexuality and immorality (Remember Sodom and Gomorrah
> > ?). (Of late, seismologists have been recording a total of
> > 20-30 earthquake occurrences in a day. Apparently these
> > not-so-large-scale quakes were not being reported by
> > international news media due to the current presidential
> > campaign in the US ). I also heard pastor say, 'Watch
> > out for killer heatwaves in Africa next week.')
> > - A great persecution against
> > Christians will arise from the Muslim world. Many martyrs
> > will emerge from the Third World countries. God will
> > separate the good sheep from the bad ones; a sharp line of
> > division will separate those who walk with Him and those
> > make compromises. Christians will betray one another as
> > the love of many will grow cold. As it is 70% of the
> > Church has now become lukewarm. God has said in His Word
> > that He will spit out those who are lukewarm. (This is an
> > awesome thought but is God really saying to us, 'You
> > make Me sick, I'm going to have to spit you out!'
> > Revelation 3:16).
> > - For the first time, the world
> > including Europe is facing the food crisis. A mighty
> > financial crash will hit the world and real estates will
> > crumble. The economic confusion will first begin in
> > Europe followed by Japan . Arab countries in the Middle
> > East will be affected as they trade in the USD and the auto
> > industry will be badly hurt as a result. (Advice: get out
> > of debt; invest in agricultural land, even so the price of
> > land will soar).
> > - Outbreak of new diseases will
> > baffle doctors and scientists.
> > - A terrifying occurrence will take
> > place in the year 2012. The Lord's return will be at
> > the door and this will be a time when there is no turning
> > back. However this is not to suggest that Jesus will

> > know the day or hour of his return except the Father (Mark
> > 13:32). But the saints of God should keep watch and pray
> > as Paul wrote, 'You, brothers, are not in darkness so
> > that this day should surprise you like a thief.' (1
> > Thessalonians 5:4)
> > - The Lord told pastor last Friday,
> > 'TELL MY PEOPLE THAT EVERYTHING THAT CAN BE SHAKEN WILL
> > BE SHAKEN.' (Hebrews 12:25-29). The Lord also revealed
> > to pastor four viewpoints of the shaking:
> > - 1) What Is Going To Be Shaken. The
> > faith of Christians will be shaken by severe trials..
> > - 2) Who Is Doing The Shaking. It is
> > useless to pray against the devil to stop the shaking.
> > GOD is doing the shaking to awaken the masses. People are
> > generally hard of hearing; these disasters are a wake-up
> > call for us.
> > - 3) Why Such Shaking Is Necessary. The
> > answer is found in Hebrews 12:27. The shaking is to remove
> > temporal things on earth so that only eternal things will
> > matter.
> > - 4) Who Will Be Able To Withstand The
> > Shaking. The shaking will sift and purify the saints.
> > God 'speaks' in this manner not to scare us but to
> > prepare us for the Second Coming of the Lord.
> > Many people are convinced the world is spiraling out of
> > control today.
> > Someone asked, 'Why should the world come to an end?
> > What's the point? Answer: The end of the age marks
> > the end of the rule of man and the beginning of the rule of
> > God. Man has had about 6,000 years trying to keep the

> > said that at His return the condition of the world will be

When God speaks to a Man of God and he prophesies, it has never been wrong.
It might be a bit too soon =/ oh well. Stay strong.
