The Imminent Judgment of God (Pt. 1)

So much is happening in our world. The reason we bring news into our show is because it’s the Revelation fulfillment – it’s the fulfillment of the entire book of Revelation and the signs of the End of the Age in Matthew 24.

It’s amazing that all of the prophetic word is being fulfilled – the droughts, the slaughtering of Christians. This ISIS is killing Christians – Jesus said before I come back, they will hate you and put you to death because of my name (Matthew 24:9). I never thought in the United States of America that people would hate Christians, but it is an antichrist spirit, and anti-Word spirit. You can get a comic book into schools but not a Bible! In the news recently, there was a 5th grader that was banned from reading the Bible during ‘free reading’ time! And a teacher was punished and banned from bringing her Bible to school. She wasn’t reading it to the class; she was just reading it for her own devotional! She could have a pornographic book, or x-rated material sitting on her desk, and she could get by with that. And during this last season, a professor specifically told his students that you cannot thank God during your graduation speech.

We talk about Matthew 24 and the scriptures about the Last Days, but we need to understand that we’re living in it right now, today – it’s happening! So when we turn on the news and we see these Christians being killed for Jesus’ namesake – these are human beings just like you and me and they are standing up for His namesake. Think about yourself – think about if they came to your house – took your belongings – burned your house down – and drove you out.

We’re still living in ‘happy church’ time and thinking about how to get more money. We are preaching the love of money and it’s “another gospel!” And, America has turned to another gospel – we saw the headline last week where preachers, although they know the Bible, are afraid to preach it because it’s not politically correct! The news headlines said, “Study Reveals Most American Pastors Silent on Current Issues Despite Biblical Beliefs.” The article read, “Yes, the Bible speaks to every one of these issues,” Then we ask them: “Well, are you teaching your people what the Bible says about those issues?” and the numbers drop to less than 10 percent of pastors who say they will speak to it.” We are at the time where the Bible says in Amos 8:11, “I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:” and every Christian is going to have to be a purveyor of the Word.

Everything that’s happening just solidifies what I believe God has been talking to me about. God spoke to me to build a network for the unknown prophets – the prophets from where? From the deserts, and the valleys, and the hills – He said, they’re not known.  The Word says in 2 Chronicles 16:9, “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.”

I believe my friend, John Shorey, is one such prophet from the desert who has been appointed for these times. He is bringing us a word from God that has been revealed through study and through the prophecies of David Wilkerson, whom the Lord has called home. One stunning prophetic word came from David Wilkerson’s book, Racing Toward Judgment (published in 1976 – 38 years ago) says, “I believe God is going to judge this nation with three instruments of destruction. They are earthquakes, droughts, and financial disasters.”

God even gave John a vivid dream about these earthquakes which he has shared on our broadcasts. We are experiencing a terrible drought in California right now and that is where a large percentage of this nation’s produce is grown! The book goes on to say, “God’s most used, most powerful, most feared instrument of judgment has been, and always will be, drought and famine – the destruction of crops, the halting of harvest.” He goes on to say that drought and famine does more damage than invading armies. Drought is even proven to be a factor in triggering earthquakes, according to recent news articles. This is the third year of drought in California and the streams and rivers and lakes are drying up, and even the aquifers underground are being pumped out at a rate that is unstainable!

  1. Dear Pastor Jim,
    Wow, a prophet named John coming out of the desert crying “Prepare ye the way of the Lord”. Did all of you get that? Isn’t that incredible. God is Amazing. His attention to details is limitless and unfortunately
    I think we miss most of his subtleties, but I sure got this one. Praise God! Hope you all did too.

  2. Pastor Jim,

    Indeed, it is NOT easy preaching “prophetically” to a grossly “backslidden” Church and a wicked “God-forsaken” nation – be we called into the actual “office” of the Prophet; or called into the other ecclesiastical positions of leadership; or even just for “laypersons” who simply bear the spiritual gift of “prophecy” by itself. There are TOO MANY false prophets running around; “tickling itching ears” of carnal-minded Christians; giving the same old generic messages, year after year; which comprise only of self-flattering exhortations – but very little [if any] PROPHETIC CONVICTION!!!

    Today’s churches are so filled up with false prophets who are falsely proclaiming messages of “peace and safety” for America and for the Church; all the way to the point whereby; that when indeed a TRUE prophet of the Most High comes along – being sent by God Himself – in order to warn backslidden Christians of God’s judgments upon the Body of Christ herself, and upon this wicked nation, as a whole; THAT consequently, with the false prophets having ALREADY lullabied to “spiritual slumber” naïve charismatic Christians with the false hope for them having to supposedly “ESCAPE” the awesome judgments of an angry vengeful God; that these same deluded carnal-minded Christians will not be MENTALLY or SPIRITUALLY “ready” to receive – or, at least, to seriously consider – the TRUE prophetic messages of “doom and gloom” for America and for her Laodicean-minded backslidden “prosperity-gospel” churches, at the very coming of God’s truly “anointed” prophetic messengers of warning. That is, tragically TODAY, most of your charismatic [and even non-charismatic] church members in the United States have been so inundated with all of these materialistic messages on pursuing “financial prosperity” from God; and so inundated with all of these false satanically-driven prophetic messages of “peace and safety” for America and for the Church – during your typical Sunday-morning sermons or weekly services; THAT, by the time the Lord actually “gets around” to sending out, to the churches, His own TRUE prophetic servants – to WARN the Body of Christ of His inevitable judgments upon backslidden believers and upon the sinful nation itself; THAT consequently, at the very time that the Lord is already sending His prophets RIGHT NOW; that tragically, Christians today, who have ALREADY, for years, got “used to” – OR got too comfortable with – having heard plenty of self-serving, self-flattering false messages of “peace and safety”; THAT, by the time the REAL prophets come along and give the Lord’s true messages of warnings of DESTRUCTION upon backslidden Christians and the rest of the nation; THAT the carnal-minded money-loving Laodicean Christians will have already been “set up” for DELUSION by the false prophets who came BEFOREHAND; and thus, these same fleshy-minded reprobate believers will NOT be in a mental or spiritual “position” to recognize and receive a “true” prophet of the Lord; SINCE these same true prophets NOT giving messages that would cater to the “lusts of the flesh”; BUT yet, would give divinely-inspired messages of “warnings”, dealing with God having to avenge Himself of His Body having “forsaken” Him; thus, requiring His due “chastisements” upon His backslidden children in Christ, of whom He loves so dearly.

    REAL prophecy in NO WAY is supposed to “tickle the ears”, by prophesying “smooth things” for backslidden believers; falsely declaring a future life of “peace and safety” for sinful America, and for the “backslidden” Church herself, and for the godless anti-Christian segment of the rest of the world. IN contrast to the MANY false carnal ministers in America, who are preaching the so-called “Prosperity Gospel” and the supposed “brighter days ahead” for the Church; THAT conversely, God’s own true prophecy – unlike the demonic self-flattering kinds – is really scary, rightly evoking FEAR in the hearts of guilty listeners. [

    Therefore, Pastor Jim, as you are already well aware; that it is actually GOD Himself who is causing all of America’s political/economic/social/geological upheavals; with the whole PURPOSE of God – out of His loving kindness, to give the unrepentant wicked an “INCENTIVE” to forsake worshipping the “god of mammon” – and subsequently begin worshipping the TRUE God of Heaven, i.e., worshipping the Most High God, the God of Jesus Christ; and ultimately, for the Lord to bring as many human beings that are willing to serve Him, to enter into Eternal Life through Christ Jesus himself.

    Therefore, Pastor Jim, what really still concerns me about the Christian Church of Western Civilization – particularly the American Church; and even more particularly, the charismatic churches today – is that nearly all of these churches of the Western World are so filled up with the sin of covetousness – because of the hedonistic attitude towards the Western World’s high standard of living; that, the citizens in the “free”, “democratic”, “Christian” nations have so taken their God-given “blessings” for granted, to the point whereby the people living in these “free” nations have become most UNGRATEFUL to the Lord for all the good “gifts” that He has bestowed upon these same nations; and thus, the people here pay “little” or “no” ATTENTION to God Himself; or if they DO indeed pay “any” attention at all to God; that NEVERTHELESS, they do so – BUT only to those qualities of God that have to do with His so-called “LOVING KINDNESS” – as currently epitomized by the “prosperity gospel”, as today’s money-minded ministers focus on petitioning the Lord for nothin’ but “health and wealth”; and yet, these same materialistic “believers” conveniently IGNORE the character of God that has to do with the SEVERITY of His “judgments”. Or in other words, these ungrateful materialistic so-called “Christians” – both clergy and laypersons – purposely ignore the frightening judicial character of the very “wrath” of God, which is reserved for the persistently disobedient believer – along with the unrepentant “heathen” themselves.

    The upcoming worldwide ECONOMIC COLLAPSE is the Lord’s way of JUDGING the ultimate “GOD” of America – which is MONEY itself; just as He had, thousands of years ago, “judged” the very false gods of Pharaoh and Egypt!! Therefore, knowing just how much the hedonistic/materialistic American People eternally and unrighteously CRAVE after money, material things, status, and power; that perhaps the upcoming “Economic Collapse” will indeed be the catalyst for SPIRITUAL REVIVAL in America. We will indeed have to “wait and see” as to what the Lord plans to “do” to America and to His Church, in the not-too-distant future. At this point, all we can do is to pray and “seek” the Most High, and find out what “it” is that we must “do”, through Jesus Christ, in order for the Lord to bestow the necessary degree of “MERCY” that this country needs, for the purpose of holding off, for the time being, religious persecution, and being SPARED death and destruction by the angry and vengeful “hands” of God Almighty; as He fiercely “judges” Mankind with all kinds of economic, political, and deadly natural disasters across the globe.

    Right now, prophetically speaking, God is “PURGING” the entire nation – including the hedonistic/materialistic American Church – of her LOVE for MONEY, and love for status and material things. And so, our current “Economic Crisis” will not only JUDGE non-believers themselves; BUT also, it will judge us so-called “Christians” – for our own “love” for money and prosperity. The Lord, right now, is teaching the Church AND the entire country to NOT depend on our “jobs” or “careers” for our provisions; BUT to depend on Him – and HE alone!!

    Therefore, Pastor Jim, let us PRAY for God’s MERCY and GRACE to be continuously BESTOWED upon our undeserving wicked nation; so as for the Lord to give the American People enough “TIME” for them to finally COME to their “senses”, and to FORSAKE their unspeakable debaucheries, such as their unbridled COVETOUSNESS; and rather, choose to serve Jesus Christ himself – and NO LONGER mammon!!

    Pastor Jim, I have no doubt in my mind that you have already learned to encourage YOURSELF in the Lord!! And I have no doubt either; THAT America herself, due to her unspeakable abominations, is indeed already currently “ripe” for God’s severe judgments to be laid upon her. And sadly, so is the Church!! And so, America’s enduring sins will truly “find her out”, at the END of time, during God’s apocalyptic judgments of Revelation.

    Lastly, I leave you with 1 Peter 4:17, which states:

    For the time is come that JUDGMENT must begin at the House Of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the END be of them that obey NOT the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

    Pastor Jim, I will indeed continue to pray to the Lord; that he would strengthen you and your family; as you go about preaching prophetically to this wicked and perverse generation in today’s Christ-rejecting America. So, Pastor Jim, I thank God for you – and will continue to pray for you; as you are indeed being “used” by Him; for you to faithfully PREACH the truth, regarding the Lord’s judgments upon the Church and the nation; and to also warn “faithful” God-fearing believers in the Body of Christ to get ready NOW – for us to EXPERIENCE some degree of hardship or SUFFERING, as God’s judgments are, no doubt, going to get much more severe in this wicked country of ours……..and so, yes, to pray for God’s MERCY and GRACE even while he JUDGES the Church and the nation; and thus, for us to PREPARE ourselves spiritually [and if possible, “practically”]; to FACE the “collateral damage” of God’s judgments, which are primarily directed towards “THE WICKED” !!!

    Regretfully yours, about America – but still forever Joyful in Jesus!!
