Clarification of Earthquake Prophecy on The Prophecy Club 11/19/2014
In the early fall of 2011 a number of recognized prophets received warning of a coming massive earthquake and tsunami to hit the NW coast of the United States. I was one of 4 that I know of that was being shown this event spiritually and we were unaware of what was being shown to each other outside of our own visions and words. None of us communicated with the other or read the words received of the others.
I personally had received the word earlier in the spring of 2011 and had seen the vison in front of several individuals. It was a profound vision during a 4 hour visit with an elder brother in the Lord who was well known in many circles throughout the North Western states.
We had been sharing our identical visions of a network and project that had been indelibly imprinted on our hearts for times ahead. I had received a blueprint and instructions in 2006 that this elderly man had received in the 1970’s. He was getting up in years and new that the Lord was sending someone to carry on. This brother passed away shortly after his 82 birthday and our identical visions of our call have not come to fruition as of yet.
In any case it was during our sharing and visiting that I was shown what was to come in the fall of that year. One minute we were talking and getting ready to part ways when while we were standing there I just went somewhere and saw burnt charred stumps around the place where I was in this vision. I saw trees darkened with soot, the landscape was a charred mess and the fires went on for miles and burned with intensity. I was even shown on a map where those fires would burn to.
After the vision of a 3 state set of fires I was then shown an upheaval of the NW coast from Northern California clear up to Vancouver Island. At the time I was unaware that what I saw corresponded with the Juan De Fuca plate and the earthquake geologists were waiting on. During the vision I witnessed the partial destruction of Seattle Washington and the complete destruction of Portland Oregon.
I also witnessed in this vision the crumbling and turning upside down due to a plate under thrust of biblical proportion. It was frightening to see it for the ground itself was tossed up in the air and turned upside down.
I saw the death of several hundred thousand people, disruption of everything for miles. Then following that disturbing sight I saw a coming wall of water, a tsunami of epic proportions that came inland much like what happened with the Japanese earthquake that destroyed a good portion of the Japanese coast. (I also saw that happen 4 days in advance and was warning of it ahead of time)
THE PROPHECY CLUB
Later that summer I was visiting with a friend on a phone call about the vision of the earthquake and fire to hit the NW when he had a call come in that he had to take, it was a missionary friend in Romania so he hung up with me and took the call.
Later my friend called back and asked me if I was sitting down. His missionary friend was calling to warn him of a massive earthquake and tsunami that was going to hit Washington and Oregon in the same time frame I was shown. Apparently the whole Romanian congregation was shown it by the Spirit of God in an open vision during a prayer session and it was so alarming and so profound that the Missionary called my friend to warn him to leave the state on a certain series of days to avoid the calamity.
That was confirmation! Within days of that phone call I received a call from Stan Johnson of the Prophecy Club, I had never met the man or talked with him before and he had to explain to me who he was. Someone had mentioned me to him and that I had been accurate on everything so far to that time.
In short Stan Johnson wanted me to come on his show and tell what God had shown me. I declined. I wasn’t interested in doing a radio or television broadcast on the subject. Stan insisted and called me back several times. I finally asked for him to give me three days to pray about it as to whether I was supposed to say anything or not. At the end of three days I was told to do the show so I did.
As a result of that show and then the later prophecies by two or three other well-known charismatic prophets and ministers it created quite a stir. On a side note, to my knowledge no one else prophesied of the fires, just the earthquake.
At the significance of several getting the same vision to occur in the same time frame a call for intercessional prayer went out. One well known intercession ministry went so far as to move their entire ministry from Louisiana to Seattle Washington to intercede for the NW and to try and move God to stop it.
This one ministry alone had over 700 people show up from all over the world for a week of fasting and prayer to stop the earthquake from happening.
In visiting with a couple of other ministry friends we estimated that just in the NW alone there were about four to five thousand people all together gathered in different groups praying against the earthquakes.
In my own conviction I was sure that nothing would stop it from happening and even went so far as to tell the Louisiana ministry they wouldn’t succeed in stopping it.
I believe that due to the outpouring of prayers and intercession the earthquakes didn’t come during the time we were all shown. As a result we were excoriated as prophets, called false, denigrated, condemned, talk of stoning us was tossed around. To some we were called deceived, pathetic and the list is long of all the degrading epithets.
I personally had good friends turn their backs on me and shun me for months and others still to this day. My name became a foul word in the mouths of many that received healing, accurate prophecy, and intervention on their behalf that changed their lives. How quickly they forgot all of that as they not only ran away but joined in abuse against us.
But they all failed to see one thing. The earthquakes didn’t come but the fires did and they burned to exactly where the Lord had shown and had been prophesied.
You see, no one had prayed against the fires, probably because I was the only one saying they were coming as well. I had assumed that the fires were the result of the earthquakes but in fact the fires were a separate occurrence and they were extensive just as shown.
Regardless of anything else the fires proved the word was correct, the vision was accurate but no one wanted to look at that. They didn’t realize that their prayers had actually turned away the destruction that was coming in the way of earthquake and tsunami; however they failed to pray against the fires because I was the only one proclaiming them. Four of us had proclaimed the earthquakes, only one had mentioned the fires.
For my own part I was so shocked that the earthquakes didn’t happen that I pulled a Jonah and stepped away from all aspects of ministry. I had never not had what I saw happen. I was stunned. Even though the fires proved the accuracy of the word the earthquakes didn’t happen and to me that was as if I had been betrayed by the Lord himself.
The enemy moved in on me and began to make me doubt myself and then combined with all the condemnation from all corners did a number on me.
I learned a valuable lesson from that. I had developed some pride in my accuracy. I had been shown and predicted the Chilean Earthquake and posted a word of it coming in 4 days and that it would shorten the days which NASA confirmed after the earthquake.
I won’t go into all the prophecy of dormant volcanos erupting during specific time frames of just 2 weeks and other events accurately prophesied years and months sometimes days in advance.
It has been a hard walk to come back from that one but lessons were learned, pride was stripped off and slowly but surely self-doubt has been and is being dealt with even on a daily basis.
It has always been my desire to see the Lord lifted up and glorified. Ironically I had fallen into wanting to be recognized and accepted on a bigger level.
For one thing we need to be thankful for what God has done in our own lives and understand that Judgment is the Lords and not ours to wield as a club against what we may look down upon.
God wants all to be saved, it is not his will that the wicked perish but that they turn from their wicked ways and be saved. At times things do occur to wake people up, to bring them to a place of recognition of the presence of God and his desire for them to come to him.
God is not running around looking for who he can destroy but quite the opposite he is working to save.
For my part I hope to be forgiven by those that hold me in contempt and I hope to continue to forgive those that have accused and tried to harm us. I know why and at one time I was of the same mind set.
May God continue to forgive us, have mercy on us and save us.
