An Artcile from

A respected pastor, best-selling author and founder of a major
ministry to teens predicts an imminent "earth-shattering calamity"
centered in New York City that will spread to major urban areas across
the country and around the world – part of what he sees as a judgment
from God.

David Wilkerson, author of "The Cross and the Switchblade," a book
about his ministry to troubled New York street kids that was later
made into a movie starring Pat Boone, tells readers of his blog this
weekend that he is "compelled by the Holy Spirit to send out an urgent
message" about his prediction.

"An earth-shattering calamity is about to happen," he writes. "It is
going to be so frightening, we are all going to tremble – even the
godliest among us."

Wilkerson's vision is of fires raging through 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," he
explains. "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?"

In this age of evil, be a champion for God and stand up for the
absolute truth of Scripture, not the misconceptions you've been led to
believe. Get "Shocked by the Bible: The Most Astonishing Facts You've
Never Been Told" personally autographed!

Wilkerson is the founding pastor of Times Square Church in New York
City, where he launched a ministry to gang members and drug addicts in
1958. He is a highly regarded mentor to other pastors in evangelical
circles and travels the world holding conferences for other Christian

His work in New York in the 1950s and 1960s led to the formation of
Teen Challenge – a nationwide ministry to reach out to people with
life-controlling habits. Teen Challenge has grown to include 173
residential programs and numerous evangelism outreach centers in the
United States, and 241 centers in 77 other countries. The program
claims a recovery rate of 86 percent.

The story of Wilkerson's first five years of ministry in New York is
told in "The Cross and the Switchblade," a book he co-authored in
1963. The book became a best-selling phenomenon and more than 15
million copies have been distributed in over 30 languages.

"God is judging the raging sins of America and the nations," claims
Wilkerson. "He is destroying the secular foundations." Wilkerson urges
everyone to stockpile a 30-day supply of food and other necessities to
deal with the catastrophe he foresees.

"I do not know when these things will come to pass, but I know it is
not far off," Wilkerson concluded in his message. "I have unburdened
my soul to you. Do with the message as you choose."

A past vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention is hoping
believers pay attention to Wilkerson's message.

"I have known David Wilkerson for more than 25 years as well as many
of his friends and associates," said Pastor Wiley Drake. "He is a
godly man and I believe he is listening to God. I encourage each
Christian to read and heed what God is saying through our brother."

A Metaphor For America

Restoring The Father- Led Home

Some months ago, an ugly crack appeared in my bedroom wall. I called a painter who replaced the defective plaster and repainted the wall. It looked great. I was happy; he was happy. I paid him, and he left. But about a month later the crack reappeared, uglier than ever. Preachers don’t get mad, but I was somewhat “evangelically ticked off”. I called the painter back and asked him to fix the problem. He apologized and expressed surprise that the problem had recurred so quickly, he redid the work and everything was fine- for about forty-five days. But then the crack came back, only this time it brought its aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews at this point I concluded that I need a new painter. I called another professional to come and fix my problem for good. This man looked at my wall and shocked me by saying, “I’m sorry sir I cant help you with your problem because you don’t have a problem with cracks in your wall.” Well I looked at the cracks in my walls then I looked at the “crackpot”, telling me my problem wasn’t cracks in my wall. I said, “Excuse me, but I can see a crack, you can see a crack in fact all God’s children can see a crack.” “oh yes, he replied, you have a crack, but that’s not your problem, it just reflects a much deeper problem. Your problem is a shifting foundation. Until you stabilize your foundation you will forever be repairing cracks on your wall.

That’s a metaphor for America. The condition of American Society today, we can see cracks everywhere; social cracks, political cracks, moral cracks, even cocaine cracks. But until we stabilize the foundation, no number of programs, government grants, or elections will be able to repair the cracks in our cultural walls. There is no place where the foundation of America needs to be stabilized more than in the home.

The breakdown of the family is the single greatest contributor to the deterioration of our country. Strong families hold the key to a strong society, while conversely, weak families lead to a weak society. This is so because every other institution in society is predicated on and dependent upon strong families and you cant have strong families without God at their foundation. No wonder Satan didn’t bother Adam until her got married. Satan knew that in order to shut down God’s program of expanding his Kingdom on earth, he would have to destroy the institution at the foundation of that program; namely the family. We can’t talk about the role of Christians in affecting society without talking about the family. As Christians we need to help others, if our families are a mess, we don’t need to be exporting that into the culture.

As a husband and a father as well as a Pastor, I am convinced that the responsibility of building Godly homes lies at the feet of the man. This is not to discount a women’s importance and input. But God has placed men at the head of their families, and I don’t know of any greater task or any more risky business that to be a man holding the responsibility of leading a home. Look at what we are up against. What used to be considered rather unusual not too many years ago a family without a father is now a crisis of growing proportions. The reality in our culture today is that a staggering number of children are growing up in single-parent homes. The vast majority of which are fatherless. In 1970, for example only 13 percent of children grew up without both parents at home. But, today that member is at least 30 percent in the culture at large. For African-American children, the percentage more than doubles to 63 percent.

We’re talking about millions of children growing up in homes where in most cases they will know little or nothing of a father’s influence. I know that mothers are deserting their families today too, but the numbers are still heavily weighted toward missing fathers.

In fact, we’re told that half of all American children will go through at least some part of their lives without having a father at home. And the future doesn’t look any brighter. By the year 2010; it is predicted that 70 percent of black children will be products of single-parent (mostly fatherless) homes.

The implications of this are staggering in terms of the world we have to live in and minister to. This is not theoretical for me.

I want to address primarily fathers and husbands as we look at how Christians can strengthen America by stabilizing their own homes in the foundation of God’s word. It used to be alot simpler
than it is today. At one time our culture shared a basic understanding about what it meant to be a father and a husband. But the role of man has been radically redefined, leaving behind a whole generation of boys and men who aren’t clear about what it means to be a man, let alone how to go about leading a home.


A Different Way of Thinking

Because God is transcendent and distinct from His creation, His way of approaching and analyzing an issue is not going to be your way. That’s why you need to develop the mind of the King. You need a Kingdom mentality, a Kingdom way of thinking so that you can get God’s mind on the issues of your life. Whether we are talking about marriage, sex, money, children, or any other issue, God’s thinking on the subject will be different than the way this world thinks about it. We are looking at millions of refugees trying to escape war and violence and Iraqis war. The U.S. took in 13,000 refugees last year and has pledged to accept thousands more.

We need a new way of thinking , a Kingdom mind can make a difference and not be ashame. We can be empowered and learn how a Kingdom mind works. This is not a game , this is your life and your success.

1. Identify the true meaning of success.
2. Follow the right goals
3. Submit to divine authority
4. Break free from circumstances
5. Give life your all
6. Use attitude, perseverance, self-esteem, self-mastery, communication, prosperity and prayer to lead you into success.

Are you seeking practical advice, you need your ability and your decision to develop a Kingdom mind will also determine whether you tast victory or defeat in your daily spiritual life, Paul wrote in Romans 8

Rising to a Higher Level

As we receive revelation of the gospel of the kingdom, we will rise to a higher level in every area of our lives. The standards of this world and its system are much below the standards of heaven. In the economic system in the earth, for example, when we invest money we expect to receive interest back. One hundred percent interest or doubling our investment, would be a great return. However, in the kingdom of God we’re able to bank on another level, we’re able to sow a seed and receive thirty-sixty or a hundred fold return.

The kingdom of God is on a completely different level than this world’s system to live in it, we will have to live from the inside out not the outside in. We were never intended to live out of our spirit. The spirit is the part of us that will receive revelation of the kingdom. Look at Proverbs 20:27 is says, “ the spirit of man is he candle of the Lord, searching all the inwards parts of the belly.”
God guides us through our spirit, not our mind. Look at Psalms 18:28. Psalm 18:28 refers to the spirit as a candle saying for thou will light my candle, the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.

God’s revelation will bring light where there has been darkness in our lives. We were made to operate on a higher plane than just head knowledge. We were made to live by revelation in our heart, by the Lord lighting our candle (spirit) and enlightening our darkness (understanding). When we do, we can see what the world can’t see the kingdom of God. We won’t go the way of the world, we won’t be conformed to it because we are operating according to the spirit and not the flesh.

We need the Knowledge of

If we don’t have the knowledge of God, we cannot come out of the world’s system and into the kingdom reality. Look at (2 Peter 1:2-4)

The knowledge of God is revelation knowledge, it’s not natural knowledge, and its through this knowledge that we obtain the great and precious promises of God’s kingdom. Look at (Hosea 4:6) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. He didn’t say, my people are destroyed for lack of money or education, but they’re destroyed for lack of revelation knowledge. Real wealth doesn’t come by education; it comes by revelation. Thank God for education, but if that’s all we have we’re in trouble. An economic earthquake is coming and education won’t save us. If we want to make it through, we’ll need revelation of how to stand on the rock and how to receive our provision directly from almighty God.
This is why the k
ingdom of God must be preached the kingdom of God is God’s way of doing things, and it comes with provision through his kingdom . God has given us everything that we will ever need, independent of what happens in this world.

Sermon: We Have the Keys to the Kingdom
Jesus has given us the keys of the kingdom, now we take these keys and whatever we bind on earth is bound in heaven, whatever we loose on earth is loosed in heaven. Look at Matt 16:19 As believers and children of God, we now have authority in His name to storm the gates of hell. We can speak things that be not as though they were, and all heaven backs us up. Look at Rom 4:17 Look at Mark 16:17,18 and Mark 11:23 in His name, we can cast out devils, in His name we can lay hands on the sick and they will recover. In His name, we can call resources in we can speak to a mountain and it will be removed. Jesus restored us to God and when we operate in the authority of the name of Jesus every resource in this earth becomes subject once again to the kingdom of God. Every place we set foot becomes Holy ground, and Satan and the disobedient who are following his influence are defeated. Jesus has legally restored us to our Father God and given us His authority, the authority of His name. Furthermore, as children of His kingdom all the riches of God and heaven are ours. However, we have to know how the kingdom of God works in order to access what he has given us.

Sermon: Adam and Eve Bowed to the Devil

God entrusted all of the earth’s resources to Adam and Eve. When he told them to subdue it, be fruitful and multiply. God and mankind worked together on the earth for awhile, and everything was super. But then they bowed their knee to Satan, their sin separated them from God and put them under the spiritual authority of Gods enemy. See Ephesians 2:1-6.

Everyone in the world was once in the category of disobedient people and under the control of demon spirits. However, by grace Jesus Christ has raised us up together and made us sit together in Heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Look at First John 5:19 it says and we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. Everyone in the world of God is under the deception of Satan, whom Rev 12:9 refers to him as that old serpent called the devil and Satan which deceived the whole world, Satan deceived all of us.
