I would like to share this prophetic message with you from Rev David Wilkerson. I think it’s important to for us to consider the warning he shares in this message. Most church leaders acknowledge that we are living in the Last Days, and this message concerns the events before the Rapture of the Believers and the seven-years of Tribulation on the earth. Your eschatological views may not agree with a pre-Tribulation Rapture, but that should not hinder you from listening to this message. Whenever the Rapture takes place—if it even does take place—this message is still pertinent to every person who calls themselves a Christian.
ABOUT DAVID WILKERSON
If you aren’t familiar with David Wilkerson, he is most well-known for a book The Cross and The Switchblade. This book tells the story of his outreach to the gang community in New York City in the 1950’s. The diminutive David faced this giant with bold faith, and his act of obedience led to the founding of Teen Challenge, World Challenge, and Times Square Church. By the way, the book was made into a movie in 1970, and you can watch for free here: MOVIE LINK. I highly recommend it!
This message was preached at Times Square Church in New York City on August 5, 2007. The message is based on Isaiah 24.
Behold, the Lord makes the earth empty and makes it waste,Isaiah 24:1-3 (NKJV)
Distorts its surface
And scatters abroad its inhabitants.
And it shall be:
As with the people, so with the priest;
As with the servant, so with his master;
As with the maid, so with her mistress;
As with the buyer, so with the seller;
As with the lender, so with the borrower;
As with the creditor, so with the debtor.
The land shall be entirely emptied and utterly plundered,
For the Lord has spoken this word.
Pastor David speaks of a shaking that will come upon the earth before the Tribulation. He warns: “The Bible says sudden destruction comes when the cup of violence overflows.” He believes this passage is speaking to us, today. He points to a particular violence that has become rampant across the globe. “Around the world are numerous wars and bloody uprisings, yet foremost in my mind is all the violence waged against children. I think of the sexual violence of pedophiles. Children are being abused, raped, kidnapped and forced into enslavement in the global sex trade. The world’s largest church denomination has spent hundreds of millions to settle claims of people molested in childhood by clergy. How long will God endure the silenced cries of children mistreated by those who would represent Christ?”
I have listened to this message many times over the years, and read it many times more. I know I have shared it more than once, too. I guess I think certain things need repeating.
WATCH, LISTEN, READ
