I haven’t listened to David Wilkerson very often. Is this type of warning typical of him? I know he is very well respected.
I will not pretend to know very much about this man of what he stands for but here are a few things I surmised from the video:
1) he is not looking for extra biblical revelation but looking for God’s word in the place that God promised to speak. This gives me comfort in knowing I might be able to trust what he says.
2) what he is saying is lining up with scripture.
3) this is exactly what God has been showing me lately, although I am not really familiar with things like modern day prophecy and such.
Thanks for the post
This is an interesting word from David W. I have been to his fellowship there in New York, many times as I use to stay at a hotel just down from there. I loved going to “hear” the Word at that mouthpiece.
Today I posted this “word” to some at another “prophetic” blog.
I will post it here as well and I will note “one” change. I will add a verse from the Psalm I didn’t have in the posting at the other blog.
Here is the Word the Lord gave me this morning while in my own time of personal Prayer with Him with that one addition, Psalm 74:3 added here that was not added there :::>
I have to say what God has called me to say. I, indeed, am a Prophet.
Now that was a bold thought about me!
Nevertheless, in today’s environment, we should not be unsettled in our ways letting winds and storms and hot air fill our minds.
I would ask you, dear reader, what does the Lord do?
Here is what He does. Let me explain:
Psa 74:3 Direct your steps to the perpetual ruins; the enemy has destroyed everything in the sanctuary!
Psa 74:4 Your foes have roared in the midst of your meeting place; they set up their own signs for signs.
Psa 74:5 They were like those who swing axes in a forest of trees.
Psa 74:6 And all its carved wood they broke down with hatchets and hammers.
Psa 74:7 They set your sanctuary on fire; they profaned the dwelling place of your name, bringing it down to the ground.
Psa 74:8 They said to themselves, “We will utterly subdue them”; they burned all the meeting places of God in the land.
Psa 74:9 We do not see our signs; there is no longer any prophet, and there is none among us who knows how long.
Psa 74:10 How long, O God, is the foe to scoff? Is the enemy to revile your name forever?
Psa 74:11 Why do you hold back your hand, your right hand? Take it from the fold of your garment and destroy them!
Now, first off, verse 9 is a narrow and limiting “word” and does not, in fact, mean there will be “”no”” prophet around to speak forth the Word of the Lord!
Do I hear an amen, Miriam?
No, no, consider the previous verse and these words instead:
“….They said to themselves, “We will utterly subdue them”; they burned all the meeting places of God in the land….”
Now, if you will not, then learn a lesson from God Himself at His Word, which is a Word Eternal, always the same, yesterday, today and forever!
Listen intently, quickly and suddenly what “our” enemies say:::> “we will utterly subdue them”.
Oh? Oh yeah. Now consider this lest I pray and you be utterly destroyed!
What have we here? Hear! We have the same ole same ole as before and it shall be, nevertheless, until the end. Do not be surprised beloved True Believer, God is not mocked and neither am I!
Oh, another bold one now!!
Consider My God and what He does and will do. First, what he does and then what He will do. Do not be surprised dearly beloved True Believer at the things of God He is about to do. The things of God have already been prepared. It is that some of these things have as yet not happened:::>
First then, these things and this, My God:
Psa 2:1 Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain?
Psa 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying,
Psa 2:3 “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.”
Secondly, and do not be disturbed about what is about to suddenly happen as we have been told about it already:
Psa 50:16 But to the wicked God says: “What right have you to recite my statutes or take my covenant on your lips?
Psa 50:17 For you hate discipline, and you cast my words behind you.
Psa 50:18 If you see a thief, you are pleased with him, and you keep company with adulterers.
Psa 50:19 “You give your mouth free rein for evil, and your tongue frames deceit.
Psa 50:20 You sit and speak against your brother; you slander your own mother’s son.
Psa 50:21 These things you have done, and I have been silent; you thought that I was one like yourself. But now I rebuke you and lay the charge before you.
Psa 50:22 “Mark this, then, you who forget God, lest I tear you apart, and there be none to deliver!
Now there is a place for repentance, yes, yes indeed. That is what the Spirit and the Bride say: “come”.
There are those, marked out already for destruction, held until the “sitting” time of the judgment of all these things.
If the righteous fair no better, what becomes of the wicked and the lawless and the sinner?
Jud 1:10 But these people blaspheme all that they do not understand, and they are destroyed by all that they, like unreasoning animals, understand instinctively.
Jud 1:11 Woe to them! For they walked in the way of Cain and abandoned themselves for the sake of gain to Balaam’s error and perished in Korah’s rebellion.
Jud 1:12 These are hidden reefs at your love feasts, as they feast with you without fear, shepherds feeding themselves; waterless clouds, swept along by winds; fruitless trees in late autumn, twice dead, uprooted;
Jud 1:13 wild waves of the sea, casting up the foam of their own shame; wandering stars, for whom the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved forever.
Jud 1:14 It was also about these that Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of his holy ones,
Jud 1:15 to execute judgment on all and to convict all the ungodly of all their deeds of ungodliness that they have committed in such an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things that ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”
Jud 1:16 These are grumblers, malcontents, following their own sinful desires; they are loud-mouthed boasters, showing favoritism to gain advantage.
Jud 1:17 But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jud 1:18 They said to you, “In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions.”
Jud 1:19 It is these who cause divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit.
What the Righteous do, we do. Let’s give thanks, shall we then?
Thank you Lord, Good Lord, that you became my sin that I might have the abundance of Grace and the Gift of Righteousness now in all that I do now that I do for you and not for my glory anymore! It is and always will be, forever, for your Glory and Dominion and Power! amen? Amen!
Rom 5:17 For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.
David Wilkerson is a man of God.
He has lived a life without compromise, and never preaches the word of God to please man.
When a man of God like that speaks we would all do well to listen.
Pastor Wilkerson is such a beloved man of God. He always humbles himself to allow God to speak so mightily through him. We need more watchmen like him, but it seems as if the world continues to ignore him. How many pastors do you know who would say, “Don’t listen to your pastor, listen to what the Word of God is telling you” Honestly, can you name even 2? But what he says is the Truth and we all know it.
It is finally nice to have an annointed man of God confirm to us what the Spirit has been revealing to us. While all the other Christian “leaders” are leading their sheep to the “feel good, prosperities a’ comin'” slaughter.
David Wilkerson has been one of the very few true ‘voices’ I’ve heard for over 28 years. He’s never compromised the truth plus, has always had a deep abiding love for the body of Christ. .
When watching/listening to this for the second time tonight, i found myself weeping, because i know the time will arrive when God will call him home, and his voice will surely be missed.
He’s right–in the coming days, our faith is going to be shaken. I’m afraid that those who have built upon the sand, will not survive.
A few months ago, I got Pastor Wilkerson’s book “Gods Plan To Protect His People In The Coming Depression” based on a recommendation from somebody here (less than $2 for paperback online). Excellent book, can’t stop recommending it to people. Nothing ground-breaking per se…”merely” a re-inforcement of what’s in the Bible, which is the best kind.
He reminds me of Adrian Rogers who I’ve always thought a lot of. Good video, J, going to watch it again. Like somebody said, if a true, uncompromising man of God has something to say I think it’s definitely wise to listen…as in this case.
Just a quick recomendation. I am reading “Hungry for more of Jesus” by David Wilkerson, and it’s just wonderful. So much great information and encouragement for the times we are facing.
Ok, now back to my hammock….
Oh PJ, I didn’t want to say anything, but now that you have I will too. I too, when watching, kept thinking in my mind about the void that will be left when Pastor Wilkerson is gone. I felt that same sadness thinking about that day. He so deserves his rest. He has definately fought the good fight, but I fear that there are fewer and fewer watchmen. This, I believe, is another sign that the last day delusion is upon us. God will soon have no watchmen left.
We should tell him how much we love him and how greatful we are for him before we no longer have a chance to. I wonder if he knows what a beacon he has been to so many?
I watched this early this morning as well as the clips on CNN of Larry King interviewing Joel (& Victoria) Osteen…again. What a dramatic difference between these two men and the words that came forth from their mouths.
Joel struggled to recall verses of Scripture and couldn’t even summon the courage to call homosexuality a sin, while what Pastor David spoke was undoubtedly from a deep prayer life that has been consistent through his 55 years of ministry.
What a blessing it is to read from those who admire and respect him so much.
You’re right PJ, when the day comes that the Lord has called him home, it will be sad, but many I’m sure, will enter the closet and begin to pray as David has for so many years, to begin preaching as he has without compromise, but faithfully for the glory of God in Christ, the Savior.
God bless you all.
Yes, there is sadness when one such as he is is gone.
The honor that we could all do to honor the man is do what he was talking about in the video.
Get a Word from God daily and preach it and when necessary, use words!
That is the heritage of the Saints:::>
Psa 149:6 Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands,
Psa 149:7 to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the peoples,
Psa 149:8 to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron,
Psa 149:9 to execute on them the judgment written! This is honor for all his godly ones. Praise the LORD!
Mrs B – you just couldn’t keep away could you! Blessings.
I saw the Osteens on Larry King, too. Boy, are you right about the difference between them and Wilkerson. When watching the Osteens, I couldn’t help but comment to my husband that they just ooze insincerity. I think I’ll have to have my hubbie watch this clip as well.
Thanks for the blessings! I sure did take a quick break, huh? Lol PJ has way to good of a blog, its addicting.
I was doing a search on Wilkerson and had to come on over and check this out. I just love him! PJ and Kari, I am going to cry, I was thinking the same thing as I watched this video. He will be so sorely missed! His wonderful teaching and preaching will live on, and so will the fruit of his ministry. I agree with Kari, I wish we could let him know how much we appreciate and love him.
The thing that stand out to me is the way he speaks. He’s not condescending. He’s not holier than though. It’s a very different presentation…humble…
Bucket…you have a hammock? Cool!
David Wilkerson has taken more than his share of bullets. But in the end, he stands because he stands on the Word of God.
His voice might be wavering, but his spirit is not. I appreciate the word from his lips. He is sober-minded, and knows when to sound a warning of danger when others feign safety.
As for me, I’m thanking God for the example he has set for the flock.
I have also admired pastor Wilkerson for many years. Heard him speak at our church in late 60s or early 70s. Read his book ‘The Vision’ decades ago and am still expecting the great earthquake(literal) he talked about coming to America.
I have also enjoyed many sermons from the Times square church website. However, he seems to believe in the latter day rain stuff rather than than the last days church apostasy mentioned in Thess. 2. I wrote him asking for clarification but never received a response. Anyone else know about this seeming discrepancy?
However, he seems to believe in the latter day rain stuff rather than than the last days church apostasy mentioned in Thess. 2.
From reading his books and receiving the pulpit series letters for many years, he appears to believe that along with the last day falling away/apostasy, there will also be personal/individual ‘revival’ or refreshing for those truly seeking God and continuing in the truth…
I think he’s right–God will continue to pour out of His Spirit, even in the midst of others falling away…
I believe what you think, is right.
Else, we would not have this as prophecy:::>
Rev 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
For years i believed in a GIGANTIC sweeping last day revival…because it was all i’d ever heard preached. Then the day came when the Spirit of God opened my eyes to the falling away or apostasy in the last days.
Like many people, i jumped on that–that alone: just like i had about the ‘great last day revival’, …in other words i went from one extreme to another.LOL
As i studied both more and searched the scriptures i finally came to realize, that like many seasons in past history, while satan may lead many [MANY] to fall away from the truth, God’s Spirit was going to be ‘working’ just as hard or harder in pouring Himself out on those who truly hungered for God and on those individuals who were keeping the faith!
I believe the last day manifestation of both is, and will continue to occur.
[…] Via Sola Dei Gloria. My heart concurs with those pointing out what a loss it will be for us when Pastor Wilkerson finally goes home to his reward. What a gift to Christ’s church this man has been. […]
I worked with Bro. Dave, as we called him, for many years. He is a man of God, intense, authentic, serious, sincere and trusted by those who know and have worked with him.
