“If the foundations be destroyed, what shall the righteous do?”
Recently I felt compelled to send out an URGENT message warning of an impending great calamity — such that will cause even God’s elect to tremble.
One Bishop asked, “Is there no further word: How should the righteous respond to such a word?”
I can only answer by sharing what the Holy Spirit is speaking to my own heart and what I am to do. I shared that I was led in a practical way to lay aside a month’s supply of food — because I have witnessed the panic in the wake of terrorism. That has to be a personal word for every individual.
This is what I hear the Holy Spirit speaking to my heart concerning my own spiritual response to impending calamity. It is simply this —STAND STILL AND SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD.“
And Moses said to the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will show you today…The Lord shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace” (Exodus 14:13-14).
This is the attitude of faith in the face of calamity. What could Israel do on the brink of the Red Sea? Pharaoh’s army is pressing in, mountains are on both sides, and there is an impossible sea ahead. The flesh cries, “Do something!”
The flesh cries hopelessness. Can God’s people dry up the sea? Level a mountain? Fight a great army without having weapons? They are in what appears to be a dreadful, frightening situation. God’s people tremble — and in this hour of trembling comes a word from God.
In essence:“Stand still. Fear not. This is the hour of salvation. You are going to witness the pulling down of the foundations of a world power. But in the same hour, I will fight for you. Hold your peace — be still and see my works.”
Beloved, my warning is just one voice among many who are saying the same thing. We may all tremble for a season, but those who truly know God’s Word will be quickly comforted by the Holy Spirit. We will be baptized with a great peace — a supernatural quietness — which will be a tremendous witness to the fearful multitudes.
In Christ, David Wilkerson
I pray that this proverb will guide you concerning Pastor David Wilkerson's words, "A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished." Proverbs 22:3, NKJV.
Keep in mind, no dates were given in his URGENT MESSAGE when this would occur. He simply encouraged everyone to prepare themselves spiritually.
I have read numerous other posts concerning this message and many have concurred with what Pastor David has shared. Others have scoffed at him, which is no surprise.
My friend over at Sola Dei Gloria stated regarding Pastor David's warning, "that many of the OT prophets prophesied warnings of coming judgment for many years [if they weren't killed] before God’s judgment fell..(heck, Noah preached the same warning for 120 years!)"
Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. Matthew 24:44, NKJV.
For He says: “ In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2 (Isaiah 49:8).
