Dealing With Uncertainty

  1. 1. Dealing With Uncertainty 3.22.09
  3. 3. <ul><li>For ten years I have been warning about a thousand fires coming to New York City. It will engulf the whole megaplex, including areas of New Jersey and Connecticut. Major cities all across America will experience riots and blazing fires—such as we saw in Watts, Los Angeles, years ago. </li></ul><ul><li>There will be riots and fires in cities worldwide. There will be looting—including Times Square, New York City. What we are experiencing now is not a recession, not even a depression. We are under God’s wrath. In Psalm 11 it is written, “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (v. 3). </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>God is judging the raging sins of America and the nations. He is destroying the secular foundations. The prophet Jeremiah pleaded with wicked Israel, “God is fashioning a calamity against you and devising a plan against you. Oh, turn back each of you from your evil way, and reform your ways and deeds. But they will say, It’s hopeless! For we are going to follow our own plans, and each of us will act according to the stubbornness of his evil heart” (Jeremiah 18:11 – 12). </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>In Psalm 11:6, David warns, “Upon the wicked he will rain snares (coals of fire)…fire…burning wind…will be the portion of their cup.” Why? David answered, “Because the Lord is righteous” (v. 7). This is a righteous judgment—just as in the judgments of Sodom and in Noah’s generation. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>WHAT SHALL THE RIGHTEOUS DO? </li></ul><ul><li>WHAT ABOUT GOD’S PEOPLE? </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>As for our spiritual reaction, we have but two options. This is outlined in Psalm 11. We “flee like a bird to a mountain.” Or, as David says, “He fixed his eyes on the Lord on his throne in heaven—his eyes beholding, his eyelids testing the sons of men” (v. 4). “In the Lord I take refuge” (v. 1). </li></ul><ul><li>I will say to my soul: No need to run…no need to hide. This is God’s righteous work. I will behold our Lord on his throne, with his eye of tender, loving kindness watching over every step I take—trusting that he will deliver his people even through floods, fires, calamities, tests, trials of all kinds. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Note: I do not know when these things will come to pass, but I know it is not far off. I have unburdened my soul to you. Do with the message as you choose. </li></ul><ul><li> God bless and keep you. </li></ul><ul><li>In Christ, </li></ul><ul><li>DAVID WILKERSON </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>“ For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water ” </li></ul><ul><li>(Genesis 7:17-18 NIV) </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>THE VISION (1973) </li></ul>
  11. 11. ECONOMIC CONFUSION <ul><li>Economic Crash Coming • There is worldwide economic confusion just ahead. In my vision this is the clearest thing I have seen… Not only is the American Dollar headed for deep trouble, but so are all other world currencies. I see total economic confusion striking Europe first and then affecting Japan, the United States, Canada and all other nations shortly thereafter.” (P13:p1-2) </li></ul><ul><li>Everyone Will Be Affected </li></ul><ul><li>Economists Confused </li></ul>
  12. 12. ECONOMIC CONFUSION <ul><li>D) False Boom • A false economic boom will precede the recession – but it will be short lived.” (P13-14: p4) E) A Few Good Years to Prepare • The next few years (from 1973) will be among the most prosperous in the history of mankind….Sales will continue to break records and people will spend more than ever in modern history. </li></ul>
  13. 13. ECONOMIC CONFUSION <ul><li>F) Uncontrolled Credit Debt • Credit debt will become nearly uncontrollable. I see, very clearly, just a few years of tremendous affluence and continued economic prosperity. Inflation, costs and wages will spiral higher and higher. ” (P14: p1-3) G) Bankruptcies of Major Corporations • I believe we are going to witness the bankruptcies of some of this nations major and most popular corporations. I see tremendous difficulty arising for credit corporations. There are going to be many people unable to pay off their heavy obligations to major credit card companies, causing near chaos. Thousands of small businesses will also be forced into bankruptcies. </li></ul>
  14. 14. ECONOMIC CONFUSION <ul><li>H) Government Panic • The United States government is going to “overreact” to the confused economical developments…. I see a flurry of near-panic decisions being made by various government agencies – but these hasty efforts to shore up the economy will backfire. I) Auto Industry Hit Hard • The auto industry is going to be badly hurt. Makers of recreational vehicles are going to get hit very hard. </li></ul>
  15. 15. ECONOMIC CONFUSION <ul><li>J) Building Industry Setbacks </li></ul><ul><li>• The building industry is going to face many setbacks. Housing starts will level off. There is a terrible squeeze coming to the building industry. K) Gold Will Not Provide Security </li></ul><ul><li>• The price of gold is going to rise astronomically but it will not be sustained over a long period of time…neither silver nor gold will offer real security. Gold hoarders are going to get hurt badly. This is one of the most significant predictions in this book. </li></ul>
  16. 16. ECONOMIC CONFUSION <ul><li>L) New World Monetary System • There will develop a call for revamping all world monetary systems into one uniform system. </li></ul>
  17. 17. DRASTIC WEATHER & EARTHQUAKES <ul><li>Drastic Weather Changes • The world is about to witness the beginnings of great sorrows brought about by history’s most drastic weather changes, earthquakes, floods terrible calamities – far surpassing anything ever yet witnessed. </li></ul><ul><li>Famine • Famine is coming to the world in our generation and millions will die of starvation… </li></ul><ul><li>Depletion of Relief Funds • Relief and disaster funds will become nearly depleted. Insurance companies will face huge losses. </li></ul>
  18. 18. FLOOD OF FILTH: MORAL DECLINE <ul><li>A) Pornography on TV • Be warned – in the not too distant future X-rated porno movies will be show on select cable networks after midnight. • Also available will be the same triple x rated video tapes for private home use. These videotapes can be played on any TV set with an electronic attachment. B) Sex Drug • I believe a new sex drug will be concocted and distributed by the black market to teenagers and students. It will break down moral restraint and lead thousands of teenagers into promiscuous sex activity. C) Teenage alcoholism • Teenage alcoholism will increase. We are going to face a critical drinking problem with teenagers between thirteen and sixteen years of age. </li></ul>

  20. 20. <ul><li>Exodus 3:14-15 </li></ul><ul><li>God said to Moses, &quot;I am who I am.

This is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation.” </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>Philip. 1:6 </li></ul><ul><li>B eing confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Dealing With Uncertainty <ul><li>His Promises Never Change. </li></ul><ul><li>Psalm 119:89 </li></ul><ul><li>Your word, O Lord, is eternal; </li></ul><ul><li>it stands firm in the heavens. </li></ul>

  26. 26. <ul><li>Romans 8:35-39 </li></ul><ul><li>Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? [36] As it is written: </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;For Your sake we are killed all day long; </li></ul><ul><li>We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>[37] Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. [38] For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, [39] nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. </li></ul>
