It’s pretty common, actually, that those who are lost in christianity will hear something they think sounds wonderful, or that makes them feel good, and they immediately espouse it as some sort of truth, even though there is either no scriptural support for it, or it is blatantly contrary to scripture.
I look at the late Billy Graham, and how he is held out as some special saint to be venerated, even though he preached a destructive, false salvation that misled millions of people across the world. The notion that someone can come forward and say a “sinner’s prayer,” and then claim to be saved, is not only found nowhere in scripture—it is contrary to what scripture actually teaches.
And, as we have discussed many times before, much of this spiritual ignorance that causes folks to quickly latch onto false teachings in the many different flavors (denominations) of christianity is directly attributable to christianity’s rejection of the Father’s traditions (Sabbaths—weekly and feasts, wedding traditions, temple ordinances and practices—all physical foreshadows that teach deep doctrinal truths).
And, just like Billy Graham, I’m sure David Wilkerson was a very nice man, and did much humanitarian good for those around him (as many secular organizations do), but he preached christianity, which is not the truth; thus, his teachings are not to be trusted at all.
Now, because of this current Chinese pandemic that has so many people anxious about what lies ahead, I have seen several folks post things about a supposed prophecy that Wilkerson shared in 1986.
He said, “I see a plague coming on the world, and the bars, churches and government will shut down. The plague will hit New York City and shake it like it has never been shaken. The plague is going to force prayerless believers into radical prayer and into their Bibles, and repentance will be the cry from the man of God in the pulpit. And out of it will come a third Great Awakening that will sweep America and the world.”
For a prophecy to be true, it has to line up perfectly with what we are told in the scriptures and in the Father’s traditions. This so-called prophecy is stating that, because of some plague that shuts everything down, there will ultimately be some spiritual “great awakening” that will sweep America and the world.
There is not a single verse in the whole of scripture that suggest such a thing is going to happen, and many passages that state just the opposite is in America’s future. I know—so many christians want to believe things are true just because they like the sound of them, without any regard to what is said in the scriptures.
Often, christians will lift phrases, or individual verses, out of their contexts, or pervert the actual meanings of words in the ancient manuscripts, to fit their false narrative of christianity.
How many times have we seen American christians quote 2 Chronicles 7:14 as if it has anything to do with christians or America?
The verse is written specifically to the group of people whose name includes the Father’s name, which is Yah. That verse is given to those who, in the Hebrew, are called YAHUDIY, which is translated “Jews.” However, the spiritual real substance of that name is anyone who has received the spiritual covenant of marriage to Messiah Yahoshua (Romans 2:29). It has nothing to do with bloodline, geography, race, or religion. It is spiritual, not physical.
So, back to Mr. Wilkerson’s “prophecy.” There is not a single scripture anywhere that foretells of a “great awakening” spiritually before the bride is removed from the earth. The bride’s removal on the Feast of Trumpets is the next thing that occurs on the prophetic calendar.
What we ARE told about in scripture is a “falling away” (2 Thessalonians 2:3), which is what Paul foretold about the coming invention he was prophetically shown called “christianity,” which was codified in the fourth century by a sun-worshiping pagan emperor. The false religion called “christianity” was devised by stripping the true faith of its foundations, and replacing them with pagan abominations (like SUNday assembling, christ-mass, and easter/ishtar), and humanistic theology.
But, point out the fact that Billy Graham’s salvation was a counterfeit of true salvation, or that David Wilkerson’s “prophecy” is debunked with the true message of scripture, and christians everywhere will call you every name in the book, and most will run away from you as fast as they can (the light of the Holy Spirit’s truths exposes their false beliefs, and most don’t like that at all).
Now, some along the way will hear the truths of the Holy Spirit, and will allow the Holy Spirit to lead them OUT of christianity, the counterfeit, and into the light of His truths. Those truths encompass the true path to salvation, which is NOT a decision man can make, but is a gift from the Father to those who believe in His Son Yahoshua, and who confess Him before others (the true Gospel of Yahoshua).
No, there is no “great awakening” that will occur in America. In fact, the bride will be removed from the earth on the Feast of Trumpets, and that will likely occur within the next couple of years (we are quickly approaching the end of the sixth “day” of man on the earth, which will usher in the seventh day, which will be Messiah’s 1000-year earthly reign before final judgment occurs).
Messiah Yahoshua said of life in Him, “ . . . and FEW there be who find it” (Matthew 7:14). There are currently 2.5 BILLION christians on the planet. Those two things cannot be squared.
Messiah also said in Luke 13:24, “Strive to enter through the narrow door; for MANY, I tell you, will seek to enter and WILL NOT BE ABLE.” Hmmmm . . . how could THAT be, if salvation is merely a decision, a choice, or a prayer made by a person? Answer: it’s not. Any salvation that is a decision made by man, or a “sinner’s prayer” is a false salvation.
Moreover, we are told in Revelation 17 & 18 that the coming Antichrist (who is revealed AFTER the bride is removed) is going to destroy the False Prophet (pope) AND all of Babylon. Rome is the spiritual head of Babylon, but the USA is the governmental and financial arm of Babylon (the largest, most powerful nation of christianity).
So, not only will there be no “great awakening” in America, the USA will be destroyed by the Antichrist in less than two decades from now.
Now, that’s not to say that there won’t be big pushes across the country to get folks to join the human club of christianity. But, that has nothing to do with eternal life or being part of Yah’s family. When someone chooses to join that club, all it really accomplishes is putting more people into the group we see in Matthew 7:21-23—unsaved christians.
Believe in Messiah Yahoshua, our PASSOVER (not easter), and confess Him and His true Gospel before others. Those who do that SHALL BE SAVED (they will receive the spiritual covenant by the Father’s will alone, and in His time alone).
