RUSSIA AND THE WATCHMEN, PART 2 -- Sodom and Gomorrah

In last Friday’s post, I showed how four men (Wilkerson, Allen, Duduman,Gruver) had one vision -- Russia destroying the United States.

RUSSIA AND THE WATCHMEN

This week, in Part 2, I offer from two of the men (Wilkerson and Duduman)WHY the Lord God, Jehovah, the Holy God of Israel, will use Russia to destroy the United States.

DAVID WILKERSON:

In last week’s post, I edited David Wilkerson’s prophetic word to emphasize 'the WHO'; this week I add the rest of David Wilkerson’s word to complete 'the WHY,' as well as some of the conditions that will exist, primarily persecution of Christians for their Bible-held beliefs, right before that terrible day. In fact, Wilkerson notes that ‘for one hour’ Christians will be enduring harsh persecution here in America for rejecting the immorality that will come upon the US because of ‘wickedness in high places’ (I wrote about that here.)

Excerpts from Set the Trumpet to Thy Mouth (1985).

“America is going to be destroyed by fire!”

Sudden destruction is coming and few will escape. Unexpectedly, and in one hour, a hydrogen holocaust will engulf America -- and this nation will be no more.

It is because America has sinned against the greatest light. Other nations are just as sinful, but none are as flooded with gospel light as ours. God is going to judge America for its violence, its crimes, its backsliding, its murdering of millions of babies, its flaunting of homosexuality and sadomasochism, its corruption, its drunkenness and drug abuse, its form of godliness without power, its lukewarmness toward Christ, its rampant divorce and adultery, its lewd pornography, its child molestations, its cheatings, its robbings, its dirty movies, and its occult practices.

In one hour it will all be over.

God will “melt” America . . .

America’s cup of iniquity is full; the bear has prepared and is set to act -- it is now only a matter of time. From over the North Pole the deadly missiles will come. Fear and some kind of supernatural impulse will cause the enemy to make the first strike.

America will suffer the first strokes of vengeance. At a later time, when Russia invades the Holy Land, God will Himself destroy all but a sixth of that nation.

The unthinkable is going to happen to America and parts of Canada.

In Racing Toward Judgment (1976), Wilkerson writes this as to why judgment will fall upon America.

God sends judgment at the point sin becomes so flaunted and violent it ‘cries out’ to be destroyed.

God sent judgment on Sodom and Gomorrah because their sin became so defiant and progressive it demanded swift action.

So the Lord told Abraham ‘I have heard that the people of Sodom and Gomorrah are utterly evil, and that everything they do is wicked. I am going down to see whether these reports are true or not. Then I will know. --Genesis 18: 20, 21 LB

‘What relatives do you have here in the city?’ the men asked. “Get them out of this place -- sons-in-law, sons, daughters, or anyone else. For we will destroy the city completely. The stench of the place has reached to heaven and God has sent us to destroy it. --Genesis 19: 12, 13 LB

Homosexuals became so brazen they attempted to indulge their lusts upon the sacred and holy. Sexual deviation became suddenly violent, dangerous and bloody. No one was safe walking the streets. The sounds of depravity became so loud they began to ‘cry out’ -- total and final debauchery. When men ‘declare their sin as Sodom and hide it not,’ they bring upon themselves sin’s own reward. God said, ‘Enough.’

The violent sins of America now cry for judgment.

Remember, Wilkerson wrote this in 1976, nearly 40 years ago, before we had a President who no longer merely beckons but now demands and even compels, thru his “Justice Dept,” that all Americans follow him to Sodom and Gomorrah, daring the Holy God of the Bible to just try and stop him.

Wilkerson asks, “Will God not judge a nation that allows its men to parade the streets strutting like peacocks in women’s clothing? . . . we have become worse than Sodom without even knowing how it happened. . . . (we have become) the United States of Sodom.

In Chapter 5, Wilkerson writes that God will punish the United States with killer earthquakes, droughts, bankruptcies and economic chaos, rising unemployment, and eventually a gold crash. When these events run their course, he will send fiery destruction from Russia!

Two years earlier, Wilkerson began his warnings to America with his book The Vision, in which he saw the punishments coming upon America and why.

He proclaimed that America would become sexually filthy beyond all recovery, and that ‘the sin of Sodom’ was coming as was ‘a homosexual epidemic.’ When society no longer rejected sodomites and the church no longer preached against the sin of sodomy, ‘the floodgates’ would open and ‘chaos’ would follow.

Wilkerson said that as part of the aftermath of the ‘floodgates’ being opened, a ‘spirit of persecution’ was coming, and it would fall upon believers.

From The Vision (1974), pg 75:

I see an hour of persecution coming such as mankind has never before witnessed. This will be persecution of true Jesus believers that will soon arise like a many-headed monster out of the sea. It will begin slowly and subtly, coming at a time when religious freedom appears to be at a peak. It will spread throughout the United States, Canada, and the entire world and will finally become a kind of madness.

Wilkerson notes that the government and the judicial system will be particularly involved in ‘harassing’ and ‘badgering’ any church or religious group for their views. He saw the day coming when the media would attempt to shut down any religious view that was not in line with current values, and Hollywood and TV comedians would mock true Christians. The IRS, the ACLU and even the Supreme Court would become deeply involved in trying to blunt the message of true Christians with the IRS being used as an especially powerful weapon against churches that tried to teach the Bible. Christian schools and colleges would face enormous pressure to conform to new worldviews or risk financial ruin.

Wilkerson said, “My message to true Jesus people is loud and clear. Prepare for the coming persecution. Prepare to face these ‘hate Christ’ clubs in school. In many places, Christian young people who take an open stand for Christ will be verbally stoned by those their own age. This revulsion movement against Christ will be personally directed by Satan and carried on by those who are deeply committed to the occult.

Jesus people will not only be considered freaks; they will also be called all manner of names and will even be spat upon in the corridors of high schools and colleges. The day may come when Bibles will be plucked from their arms and ripped apart by a laughing crowd of mockers. The harassment may eventually become so violent and widespread that Christian young people will either harden themselves like steel to withstand it or crumble before it and deny their faith.

Tribulation is coming. . . . the world will apparently go ‘out of control,’ . . . cities will become unmanageable . . . people will begin to reject God completely . . . trouble-making rebels will take over institutions . . . people will enjoy themselves in every evil way imaginable . . . thousands of Christians will fall away and begin to betray their friends . . . immorality of unbelievable dimensions will surround Christians and vex their souls almost to death.

DUMITRU DUDUMAN, 1984:

Romanian watchman Dumitru Duduman’s very first known word to America came in a “message’ in 1984. It was a message for America that she was going to be destroyed by fire and why.

He claims an angel gave him an open vision and walked him thru it.

In last week’s post I named the places Duduman said would burn here in America but deleted the ‘why’ part. Here is the word he gave, in whole:

He showed me all of California and said, "This is Sodom and Gomorrah! All of this, in one day it will burn! It's sin has reached the Holy One." Then he took me to Las Vegas. "This is Sodom and Gomorrah. In one day it will burn." Then he showed me the state of New York. "Do you know what this is?" he asked. I said, "No." He said "This is New York. This is Sodom and Gomorrah! In one day it will burn." Then he showed me all of Florida, "This is Florida." he said. "This is Sodom and Gomorrah! In one day it will burn." Then he took me back home to the rock where we had begun. "IN ONE DAY IT WILL BURN! All of this I have shown you" - I said, "How will it burn?" . . . .

He said, "Remember this, Dumitru. The Russian spies have discovered where the nuclear warehouses are in America. When the Americans will think that it is peace and safety - from the middle of the country, some of the people will start fighting against the government. The government will be busy with internal problems. Then from the ocean, from Cuba, Nicaragua, Mexico,,.." (He told me two other countries, but I didn't remember what they were.) "...they will bomb the nuclear warehouses. When they explode, America will burn!"

The Message for America, 1984

Neither watchman left any doubt as to WHY America would burn. It would be because we have become as Sodom and Gomorrah.

On Wednesday, I posted a video about Sodom and Gomorrah and on Thursday a video about Pompeii and Herculaneum, both of which I believe would be helpful in understanding this ‘part 2’ post about Russia and the Watchmen.

In both videos, it was made clear that the terrible fires that came upon these cities was because of the wrath of God. Fire fell so suddenly and so fiercely that, other than Lot who was warned ahead of of time, very few of the inhabitants escaped. Both videos tell us that the inhabitants of these cities were consumed by fire falling from above so quickly that their lives were over in seconds.

This is EXACTLY what David Wilkerson is telling us. That when Russia attacks, it will be an instant holocaust. A. A. Allen tells us that very few will escape.

In the Pompeii video, we are told that the early Christians who had been enslaved and taken to Pompeii when Jerusalem was taken by Titus warned their masters that judgment was coming, in part because Pompeii and Herculaneum were the “Sodom and Gomorrah” of the Roman Empire. I seriously doubt these Christians understood that judgment would come from a quiet volcano suddenly stirred to life, but they did understand something was coming. We are also told that some of the inhabitants of Pompeii scrawled upon plaster walls as they were fleeing (or dying, we don't know which) that judgment was falling because the Israelites’ God was angry for the destruction of the Temple at Jerusalem and for their wickedness.

Did you notice in the Pompeii video that it was noted that at least one bakery took a stand for Christianity by covering up the original pagan symbols in their business (phallic symbols) and replacing them with the Cross of Jesus Christ? Much like today, it has been in the news that bakeries across the United States are taking a stand by refusing to bake ‘wedding’ cakes for homosexuals. That has been where some of the fiercest legal battles are taking place.

Right now, it is words and threats against Christians for taking a stand, exactly what David Wilkerson said would begin to take place, but because President Barack Obama refuses to condemn such tactics from homosexuals and, indeed, encourages such rhetoric by setting the example of his own condemning rhetoric against Christians, then we must understand that the next logical step is PHYSICAL actions against Christians, actions that most likely will not be condemned by this President nor his “Justice Dept.” That is what happened in Sodom, rhetoric escalated to attempted physical attack. Don't forget that with the Christian pizzeria in Indiana, one high school coach tried to incite mob violence with a call to join her in burning the pizzeria to the ground.

We are seeing today in America, strong condemnation of Christians for believing what the Bible says about homosexuality. But many pastors are REFUSING to preach Genesis 19, and that will cause America to encounter the same fate as Sodom and Gomorrah -- destruction by fire.

When we read about Sodom and Gomorrah, we are told very plainly in Scripture that Sodom and Gomorrah were to be an example for us today of what God is capable of doing to those who live wickedly. Despite the best efforts of pastors and so-called Bible teachers to pass off Christianity and homosexuality as compatible, it is a horrible lie, a lie that will damn many to Hell (Revelation 21). The two are NOT compatible. Christians may try to live peaceably with homosexuals by not criticizing or confronting them, but that will never be good enough; there will never be a ‘coexist’ between the two. Christianity grates on the nerves of homosexuals, even from those Christians who try to be pacificists, from those who are not looking to warn or confront sin.

Just ask Lot how well they took his one and only recorded admonition of their behavior. And even then Lot did not ask them ‘not to do wickedly,’ but begged them not to, and their response was to threaten to ‘do worse to him’ than what they had planned for the strangers/angels. (Genesis 19: 7)

Homosexuals are very proud of their sin and very proud of their efforts against Christianity here in America, encouraged, in part, by a President who has not chosen to delight in the Lord but rather to delight in being the ‘champion’ of homosexuals. If Sodom and Gomorrah is an example, which it is, then what is the ‘trigger point’ in judgment falling here upon America for the same sin?

We know the ‘end’ of Sodom and Gomorrah, but perhaps the ‘beginning’ is just as important, maybe even more so, than the end.

Meaning . . . that is where the 'trigger' for the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah occurred.

We learn from Genesis 18 that two angels and a person that appears to be the pre-incarnate Christ visit with Abraham and tell him that the wickedness of Sodom and Gomorrah has reached heaven, and that they are on assignment to go to Sodom and Gomorrah and see if what has been said is true. The two angels proceed and enter Sodom. Before the evening is thru, the angels are threatened by the Sodomites and they pronounce that judgment is coming and for Lot to flee.

We are told in Hebrews that mankind has entertained ‘angels unaware,’ meaning that angels have walked among us and we knew no differently.

Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. --Hebrews 13:2

Is the day coming when angels will come down again to see if the cry of wickedness that has reached heaven is true but this time walk in some American city rather than the valley of the Dead Sea? And will those angels, mistaken for men, be accosted in such a manner that America’s fate, like that of Sodom’s, is sealed?

Why a ‘nuclear attack’ from Russia? Perhaps it is because that as we do unto Israel it is done unto us. With President Obama’s ‘framework’ deal with Iran, though he boasts that it is ‘historic’ and will lead to ‘peace and safety,’ many are warning that it will leave Israel open to nuclear attack. That is probably why the US will suffer the unthinkable -- because we have left Israel vulnerable to just such a fate.

Could it be that, like Pompeii, when the sexual wickedness of a nation entangles itself with coming up against Jerusalem that God says, ‘Enough!”?

Most likely we may never know; the Russians will move before we can ask the question.

But this we do know: Four men believed the Lord God showed them Russia attacking the United States, Two men believed the Lord showed them why. Look at the headlines in recent weeks, particularly of those of persecution of Christians for their Bible-held beliefs, and ask yourselves: could the event these men warned of be just on the horizon, both in terms of who and why?

Are we now at that moment?

More insights on Sodom and Pompeii:

Was Sodom and Gomorrah wiped out by a comet?
(GG note: The section on Lot's wife is particularly interesting as are the comparisons between what happened to the inhabitants of Sodom to what happened to the inhabitants of Pompeii and then comparing both to what happens to those caught in a nuclear detonation.)

Playing with Fire (Cindy by the Sea)
(GG note: Note Cindy's placing Obama's historic deal with Iran against the backdrop of Pompeii, which, btw, Cindy and I did not know each other would be referencing Pompeii this week.)

Important to note here what David Wilkerson wrote in The Vision, pg 76:

I see the formation of a super world church consisting of a union between liberal ecumenical Protestants and the Roman Catholic church, joining politically hand in hand, creating one of the most powerful religious forces on earth.

Page 78: I see this super church, in the guise of 'understanding,' accepting homosexuals and lesbians into its membership. Homosexual and lesbian love will be vindicated by the leadership of this church union and not only welcomed but will be encouraged. Homosexual and lesbian ministers will be ordained and given places of authority . . . will be heralded as a new breed of pioneer . . . I see . . . homosexual and lesbian churches catering exclusively to the spiritual needs of their own kind . . . church literature will be distributed . . . to children and teenagers that homosexuality is a normal and acceptable form of Christian sexual practice.

If what Wilkerson prophesied about LGBT being ordained is coming to pass, then should we not pay attention to the other things he said would come to pass as well?
