Pastor's blog

Sorry, I should have added this to my earlier post.

The pastor who is advising people have a month's worth of food and essentials on hand is David Wilkerson. HERE is the link to his general blog (it's short enough that I can type it in for the link). Just scroll down a bit for the post about stocking up called something like An Urgent Warning.

I've received Wilkerson's snail mail newsletters for over twenty years now. Some my age may remember the movie about his early ministry in New York called The Cross and the Switchblade (starring Pat Boone). He is the senior pastor at Times Square Church.

I'll let you use your own discernment regarding what he has written. I know it may not be in agreement with some people's theology but I do know a lot of people who respect him.

I've been watching Glen Beck who is now on Fox News when I get a chance (he now comes on at a time I am often busy). It's amazing to me how many people he has interviewed who are recommending storing food, starting a garden, etc.

I remember one episode when he was still on CNN, it was the first time I'd ever heard of an economist recommending investing in "canned goods". Hmmmm...

Beck has also talked about the possibility of riots in the cities.

Brenda-I too have read David Wilkerson for a while and trust his judgment. Because of your blog and several other wise advisors we have been collecting for months. I had hoped to have six months worth but with a lot of us (8 in the home, including my mom) that is a lot of canned goods. I appreciate all your links as well as I have used them in regard to food storage. I have never planted a garden but we are trying this year. Thanks for all your words of wisdom. In Jesus, Nancy

Good morning Brenda,

Thankyou for sharing about your feelings yesterday and the wisdom of peace and trusting in the Lord. I do not always make a comment but I do get round to reading most of your posts. It helps to keep me grounded in my faith during the week while I am away from my church family. I think its far to easy these days to be caught up in this worlds materialism and it is good to be reminded that others as well make do on rather small incomes by todays standards. I know what its like to live with pain, so I want to say again thankyou for your encouragement and insight.

Blessings Gail

I'm a listener of Glenn Beck and consider him a wise individual and realist. We have a nice little pantry in the works. It's important to prepare beyond pantries as well. Tom Sullivan has been talking about utility rationing that 'O's energy people are pushing, as well as further taxing of energy consumption.

Prepare, folks!

Reading the Cross & the Switchblade is what drew me to the Cross. I bookmarked his website and will read it later. Thanks for the link.

My Pastor who is very middle of the road on believing every prophecy or warning posted this on his blog also. It appears the signs of the times are not just to be taken without a bit of warning to prepare. It certainly wouldn't hurt us to do this anyway!

Good evening, Brenda. I haven't commented in a good long while (though I read every post - just run out of time and have been sick in bed almost a week!). Just wanted to pop in and tell you how much I love your pantry posts (you'll never know how much they've helped my food costs stay low and still we eat great!). Yours was the first blog I ever read (I know, I tell you that about once every two months), and it will always be my all-time favorite. Have a wonderful week. Much love, hugs, kisses, and prayer, Brenna xoxo

A friend who lives in the southern part of Idaho said that for the first time she ever remembers, it was on their nightly news...just a regular news person who said it was time to do whatever you felt was prudent for disaster preparedness. We find that interesting.

We also are not of the branch of faith that David Wilkerson is, but we have gotten his newsletters for years. We feel he is not an alarmist and after all that he was told to do in his congregation there, right beside the area the twin towers were...and also because many times he has stared death in the face (gangs, etc.)...we have always felt he was in tune with GOD. Also, there is another man, a prayer walker and pastor named Henry Gruever who has said similar things to David over the years. We feel he also has been shown things by GOD. And if we read the Scriptures well, we know the time of prophecy we are now in (one hint is that when Gaza is forsaken, that is an end time event...and as we know Gaza was forsaken forcibly as the Jews were made to leave that area...other events in that same passage have not yet been fulfilled...but watch!) I feel that none of us can 100% prepare, but we can share with friends and loved ones when it is needed and just as in other miracles, somehow it should be ok. We did some prior to husband then worked for a nuclear power plant and he knew that the likihood was GREAT for trouble...because of warnings and much money spent on the computer problems, as we all know, we came through it ok. But it was a "trial run" no doubt for later events, perhaps for the time we are entering. Even if things turn out never hurts to be as prepared as we can.

Blessings, Elizabeth

11/25/07 - A dream of a coming storm, which the Lord gave to a brother in Christ

I saw a storm coming. The area, where the storm was approaching from, was just the open sky, but there was the sense that it was coming from out over the ocean. I could not tell which coast I was looking out from, but I knew I was looking from America. The storm clouds were approaching and getting darker and thicker. Then three tornadoes, or waterspouts, broke down out of the storm, all at once, and headed for the shore.

After a small lapse of time, I saw myself climbing up some stairs in a house, to my bed in an upper room. I laid down in this bed, and realized that my resting place had changed. The head of the bed had shifted from facing the West, and it was now facing the East.

11/28/07 - From God the Father, the Interpretation of the Dream - Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear


The Day has come and it is here. It has come, says the Lord God... I shall repay. Your nation is given up, and will be left in ruins, for all their forsaking of Me. The roof is heavily weighted, all its pillars are cracked and no longer can bear the weight of their burden. The wind shall blow, the fire shall burn, and all these riches shall be consumed. A swift storm shall come upon you, and you shall not know from where it shall come, for it is already upon you. It shall reach across the oceans, it shall be swift and catch you unawares. It is building and grows in its fury... it builds and has come.

And this shall be its consequence upon you, thus shall it bring forth against you: Confusion, a swirling wind... water, a flood of fear... destruction, collapse of all your foundations. Even the earth shall rise up against you, and nature shall fight against you, oh perverse and mighty nation. When three times pass, it shall be accomplished... it shall surely come to pass. And the elect shall be gathered, even all those I see of Myself in them, My own reflection shown within the eyes of the first redeemed from the earth. For in a moment, a twinkling of an eye, they shall climb the Ladder, and lie down and rest for a short season, even in the place I have prepared for them. They shall rest, until the Day is done and it is finished. Then they shall arise and descend with the King... And as the lightning flashes out of the east, and shines, filling the sky even unto the west, so shall the coming of the Son of Man be.

For your leaders have cast their lot with the Ishmaelites in the dividing of My land... even of the children’s inheritance I had given to their forefathers forever. And so, I shall divide them with calamity, with famine, and with destitution...

Yet they will turn. And anger shall swell in their faces over much betrayal, causing them to repent of that which they had promised, and they will again stand with the children of Abraham, until three days pass over. Then shall they be given into the hand of him, called the horn of satan... their name dissolved, becoming one of the ten for one hour, then plucked up and broken, during which time the Lord shall bring forth of them a great harvest, a great and mighty harvest, a great multitude, a refined and strong people for My name...

Then the end will come.

The King shall reign.

And that accomplished shall be finished...
it shall be completed.

Peace... one thousand years.
