Run On The Banks-prophecy by David Wilkerson #mi

Keep an eye on Greece.  This prophecy was just quickened to my spirit:

David Wilkerson's Prophecy of Run on American Banks


David Wilkerson’s Prophecy of Run on American Banks

I don’t doubt there will be an economic panic someday soon but I am not going to put too much stock in a prophecy make many years ago by David Wilkerson who also made other prophecies that did not come to pass. I have his book here called, “Racing Towards Judgment” it was written in 1976 and it said many such things. I think that book makes the point I made clear enough.

: “In PREPARATION, October 1993(Rebecca, Box 545, Latham, NY 12110. ‘There has come to hand a prophetic word through David Wilkerson transcribed during a sermon. Most of know of his ministry and of his prophecies that have proven to be true, so we offer this to you, exactly as i came to us, that you may prayerfully consider it. As it says is I Thessalonians 5:19-21 (NAS) ‘Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophetic utterance. But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.'”

Note: (the above had a link to a post at but it died so below is what David Wilkerson reportedly said many years ago.)

“It is just about to happen very soon; and I am speaking prophetically. If I’ve ever heard anything from God in my life I heard it! About the notions! Poland owes $30 billion and they haven’t even paid the interest in two years! Saudi Arabia is behind on their payments on $8 billion – the richest country in the world as far as Arab states and it is not paying its bills! Very soon a European or North African or Eastern nation is going to default on its international loan and when that happens within two weeks Mexico is going to default. Mexico owes $100 billion – 80% of it to American banks – and here is what is going to happen: About two weeks after the first country goes bankrupt we are going to survive that because most of that money is owed to European banks; German, Swiss and French banks. The 2nd country is going to go down probably Argentina or Brazil and we will kind of live that out and people will settle down and say “Well maybe its not going to hurt.” But two weeks after the first country goes down, Mexico is going to default on $100 billion. And When the banks open the next day at 9:00 am in the morning $15 billion an hour is going to be withdrawn from our American banks. They are going to be running our banks; the Arabs, all the Latin American countries. They are going to be running our banks – and before the day is over the United States is going to have to declare a bank holiday. And we are going into six months of the worst hell America has ever seen! There is going to be chaos! Not even the National Guard is going to be able to quiet it down. We are going to have to call out the whole United States Army.

“Now I’ve had visions recently for I’ve been in New York City and I was in Macy’s in vision and I say people walking around stunned because they couldn’t get their money out the bank. Now I’m going to give you a word of advice. The first country that goes bankrupt, and I’ve documented this and I’ve got it sealed in an envelope and I’m going to call all my friends and I’m telling you – this is the first time I’ve said it in a public meeting like this – but the first country that bellies up you get every dime you have – church get your money out of the bank because you’ve got two weeks because there’s going to be a bank holiday and you won’t be able to get a dime for six months. Now of course, there is going to be order restored, but the nation will never be like it is again. There is going to be fear like we’ve never known. Judgment is at the door! 

“When I was at Macy’s department store in a vision and I watched people walking around stunned. They didn’t even know what to do. They didn’t know what was happening. Then a bunch of young people walked into Macy’s and suddenly went wild and began to steal. Within an hour everybody, I saw their spirit, everybody in that store = and they were robbing and stealing. They raped Macy’s and destroyed all five floors of Macy’s. It was raped and ruined in period of an hour or two. That is just the beginning.”

Kato Mivule: The Wormwood Star Vision and Chiefs Vision-2005 #mi

Stephen L. Bening

Date: 03 Jun 2015 06:27:53 -0700

The Wormwood Star Vision
Given To Kato Mivule
June 27, 2005

Greetings in the Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior whom we long for His glorious appearing…

All along I have heard and read about the Wormwood star in Revelation

Revelation 8: 10-11
10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

May 2005 Wormwood Vision…
However, as I was seeking the Lord through prayer and fasting through this past May 2005, The Lord showed me a powerful vision. I was taken to the heavens above the earth and I could see the earth in a distance not so far but clearly. Suddenly I heard a very loud sound and vibration with a very heavy zoom sound coming my way, hundred times louder than that of a Boeing 747 Jet.

I then saw a very huge rock almost the size of the moon zooming past me at a very high speed with a large tail of fire besides and behind it. In The vision I was made to feel the waves of vibrations and the heat it generated that hit me but I was protected. It was like someone was holding me by my collar and snatched me out of its way to a safe distance. I then could see other splintering rocks falling of this huge burning object and catching fire themselves.

I looked where it was headed, I knew it was headed for planet earth and thought well, I hope it lands in the ocean, not many people will die. However, it seemed targeted to the ocean and the United States. I was like, no Lord no! However, it kept its course targeting the ocean and the United States, it seemed as though someone was controlling its path unhindered and sure to hit its target. The vision ended. I shared the vision with a Prayer Warrior Sister who then told me I had a vision of Rev 8:10-11.

June 27, 2005 Wormwood Vision…
However, I simply wrote the vision down and well, like we do to many visions, I kept this one and did not give much attention to it until this morning. This time I had a series of visions early in the morning as I got up to pray and all related…

Shown the Calendar…
First, I saw someone dressed in a white robe holding a calendar and said to me,
“The date has been set back for Wormwood” which I understood as forward…he then showed me the calendar with September/October written on it and the number 7. I did not see the year but I instantly knew it was the Fall Season. I don’t know if the number 7 represents 2007, I don’t know the meaning but I know it is not that far.

Then I was shown the second vision. People were having their usual life, for some reason I saw people going to get movies at blockbuster and did not seem to care about what was coming. People were busy watching movies. No one was warning anyone, life was going on as normal.

At Chiefs Football Stadium
Then in the same vision I was taken to the Chiefs Football Arrowhead Stadium, here in Kansas City. I knew it was fall and the beginning of the Football Season. In the Vision it looked like evening and the stadium was parked to capacity with everyone putting on their red Chiefs outfits, the stadium was all red as it is normally here with Chiefs games in Kansas City.

The game was going on as usual and suddenly there was a very huge loud bang in the sky…and then a huge object I had seen previously in my May vision lit the sky with red fire and zoomed passed across the sky…with very power vibrations that threw everyone off their sits and shook the stadium…

Everyone in the stadium begun to scream and go hysterical, and run too and fro but could not leave the stadium. The huge ball of fire flew from the east across to the west. I knew it was Wormwood. The Stadium officials seemed to have had a clue about the coming disaster but did not warn anyone and also they locked the stadium doors and no one could go out.

I then saw something amazing, people begun to fall on their knees and pray to God, they knew they were going to die anytime soon. I even saw young toddlers who had come to the game with their parents praying too.

I was then taken back to the blockbuster place and people saw the object and heard the band and vibrations but seemed not to care about it, some said, “ I will die watching a movie”…

Saints Protected, Rise of Fierce End-time Preachers of The Word…
After this, I saw another vision, I was taken to a place where I saw believers gathered and protected, I don’t know where but I knew they were Christians because I was given a bible and I was preaching to them and encouraging them with God’s Word. Many other people were encouraging the saints too.

However, these who were preaching did so in such powerful authority than I have ever seen or heard before…they were men and women of authority…it is like Jesus Christ had given them His authority. All who were preaching were dressed in white robes with a bible in there hands. These preachers were powerful and fierce in the face of the devils and they hated all types of evil…they had authority that they commanded judgments on all who stood in their way.

People are always offended at real bible truth preaching preachers and some times calling them “harsh”, unkind or unloving…in this vision these guys were no joke guys, they were very tough and fierce, they meant what they said…a powerful Elijah Anointing was upon them. They had authority so powerful it shook world leaders and presidents that they dared not to answer these preachers back… These preachers had such love and passion for the saints and Christ… They seemed to do everything in care for the saints.

They spoke with such authority to world leaders and presidents that they never begged them but just commanded what they wanted done and none of the presidents dared get into their way for fear of judgments. The preachers seemed to be perfectly in sync with Jesus Christ…they could hear His Commands and do like wise…the believers had been protected in a secret place and I know they did survive Wormwood…

Debris more destructive than 2004 Dec Tsunami
After this, I was shown the debris and damage floating all the way on the Atlantic ocean like the force of the moving star caused the debris of destroyed buildings to float all the way from Europe and dumped it at the east coast of America with more excessive damage…I remembered the Tsunami, it looked like very small compared to the Wormwood damage…

Angels High Tech Room…
I was then taken to a room were I saw men around some very high tech gadgets with screens that looked more like flat screen computer panels…but this was very high tech, technology I have never seen before…I knew the men here angels, they were all dressed in white robes and they turned on one flat screen panel and showed me the trajectory of the Wormwood star, then I was shocked to look and behind Wormwood was another star following the same trajectory, just few distance behind Warm Wood and again headed for the Ocean and the United States…they all seemed to have the United States in their path…

After this I was then taken to Africa, in Uganda where I come from. I was shown people, very sad looking to the destruction in the West. In Uganda, the staple food is Bananas (Matoke in Luganda, a Ugandan Language); people grow different types of Bananas and Plantains. However, the Path of Wormwood dried up all the banana plantations. There was already a drought before Wormwood and now the little food was gone. People cried because the West that provided them food was in destruction…fiercer hunger loomed on the horizon… However, I saw the saints gathered for Jesus Christ too in numbers…I was encouraging the saints there… I did not see much destruction from Wormwood in Africa as I saw in the West in the Visions, apart from a fierce hunger and famine across the continent…

I pray that everyone will get deeper into loving Christ Jesus; He loves His saints and will fight for them. No one knows really what great things He has prepared for those who love Him. Jesus Christ will protect and provide for His own, even in the midst of judgments…even if we die, we go home to be with Him forever…

There is nothing to hold back from loving The Lord…there is NO HOPE in the things of this world…the silver and gold will be cast to the streets as useless…it is time to reconsider ALL your priorities and what is of value to you…I speak this to American Christians, DON'T waste your time on money, silver, gold and the riches of this world…GO SELL WHAT YOU HAVE AND GIVE TO THE POOR and come follow Jesus Christ…store and invest in heaven now…the days of your riches, America are numbered…I say this with sorrow and sadness, don’t be foolish and build your house on sinking sand…build your house on the rock, Jesus Christ…the storm is surely coming, not very far away but very soon to test and beat against both houses and only those who have built on the Rock, Jesus Christ, will withstand the coming days…

However, our faith in Jesus Christ is more precious the Gold though tested will endure and we shall be with Christ Jesus forever… I cannot wait for those times to come to pass. My spirit is excited, Wormwood is not for our destruction but we should learn to rejoice in God’s Judgments upon the wicked…the saints in heaven sing hallelujah (I highly suggest at the unleashing of God’s Judgments upon the earth, lets get in synch with them and sing along as Jesus Christ exalts His Holy Name and brings vengeance on all who hate God and practice evil. The Saints of The Lord can freely claim Psalms 91 with no fear…this is not a time to fear but walk by faith in God…

God Bless You All
Your Brother in Christ Jesus

24 Year Anniversary #mi

Stephen L. Bening

Date: 01 Jun 2015 18:45:39 -0700

Prophet Stephen Bening~Prophecy~Prophet~Prophetic~Ministry

I do not think that it would be right to let this June 1st pass with discussing a notable anniversary.  The Lord might be upset with me if I kept quiet about it.  After all, are not our spouses highly irritated when we fail to mark marital anniversaries?  So too, our bridegroom may take things such as I will now discuss just as seriously.

Twenty four years ago, I was doing some study and the Lord spoke to me.  He had spoken to me up to that time by quickening scripture but this was different.  The Lord spoke something to me that was not scripture, at least not directly.  It was something new.  I prayed about it as it was a highly unusual word that I had received on June 1, 1991.  I really did not know what to make of it but I knew that I must type it up and deliver it to the elders of the church.  So, that is the story of how my very first "prophecy" was delivered to the church.  What was it?

"The number 24 will be important in my life, the life of my church and in the life of the worldwide Christian Church"

Since that time twenty four years ago, I have had this date circled in my mind.  I have wondered for 24 years what I would be doing and just what would be going on in the world.

Then, of course, this led me to mark and note some other "24 year" anniversaries that will soon be coming for me:

Baptism in the Holy Spirit:  June 7, 1991 to June 7, 2015
First Apocalyptic prophetic word on Financial Reversal:  September 29, 1991 to September 29, 2015
First open vision-European Vision:  November 21, 1991 to November 21, 2015
Calling to prophetic office:  June 24, 1992 to June 24, 2016
First dramatic prophetic fulfillment:  Hurricane Andrew- August 24, 1992 to August 24, 2016

So, for 24 years, I have had this period of time marked out in my mind:  June 1, 2015 to August 24, 2016.  It is a period of about fifteen months.  I am still in prayer about what might be indicated.

Back in May 28, 2008, the Lord spoke to me that He was going to begin to fulfill the things that He had shown me about the judgements on the seventeen anniversary of when He began to show me future things.  So, I knew at that time to watch the time period from September 29, 2008 to November 21, 2008.  All of you can easily remember how that went.  Hello Wachovia!  Hello Government Motors!  AIG?

In what may be unrelated, but then again, only the Lord knows, He has begun to quicken the Asteroid Tsunami prophecies to me, beginning on May 10, 2015 on the next to last day of our Trinidad mission.  I told a PHD physicist in an email today that as of today, I have never been on higher spiritual watch and most especially, for asteroid and comet caused tsunamis.  This astronomer/physicist now has 2015-2016 circled as his most likely time period for commencement of these types of impacts.

Be very alert.  Be watchful.  Wake up and cast off all slumber. Watch and pray always that you may be accounted worthy to escape that which is coming upon the Earth and to stand before the Son of Man.

Trinidad Asteroid Tsunami Dreams #mi

Stephen L. Bening

Date: 31 May 2015 17:51:22 -0700

Prophet Stephen Bening~Prophecy~Prophet~Prophetic~Ministry

I wanted to write about the events of our luncheon that followed my preaching on Sunday, May 10, 2015. It needs to be dealt with separately as it has to do with Asteroid/Comet Tsunami prophecies and as such, I will link it to that page on my website directly.

"You had to be there"

Just imagine: I have just finished pouring myself out spiritually and physically in this hot environment here in Trinidad. I was exhausted. The room where we have just eaten is hot too and getting hotter. I have ministered now three times in front of Pastor Liz and her congregation. Her husband, Pastor Krishna, has gotten to know me quite well. And, after all this, at the end of dinner, THIS HAPPENED!

Pastor Liz sat down next to prophetess Amanda on the other side of the table from Mary and I. Pastor Liz looked me in the eye and asked, out of the blue: DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT PROPHECIES CONCERNING TSUNAMIS?

Well, as you might imagine, I felt a little bit like Babe Ruth staring at an incoming fastball I had been expecting. It turns out that after all this preaching; all this prophesying in their church; after they have opened their church and home to us............they knew me already. Pastor Liz and Prophetess Amanda knew me already because they had already spent significant time looking at my website at the Asteroid/Tsunami web page.

The thing is, they had not previously known the identity of the one who prepared the asteroid/tsunami web page on USAPROPHET.COM. They had read it and studied the links, but they never connected it to me UNTIL RIGHT THEN AT THAT INSTANT. Their eyes got rather big and I am sure that mine did to as we were now aware that we had been SET UP by Heavenly Father.

They explained to me that they have each received two dreams in which the ocean begins to rise up on the North Coast and Atlantic Coast of Trinidad. They have seen it rise, and rise and then enter their homes and then go way over the top of their homes.

I have asked these holy women to write these dreams down, but so far, I do not have the actual details of their two dreams each, but if and when I ever receive those, I will include those here, on this page. These are two women who give themselves to fasting and prayer. They are not playing.

You and I should not be playing either.

Great Flood Atlanta & Eastern USA-Ruby Golden-1963 #mi

Stephen L. Bening

Date: 13 May 2015 07:37:55 -0700

I received this letter today, reporting to me of a dream that she
had 41 years ago (1963). Gwinnett County, Georgia, is 225 miles inland, at
an altitude of 1080 feet. The map I prepared of the ocean
encroachment to be caused by the three asteroid impact showed that
the flood would reach her area. Her dream confirms that.
Apparently, it will be ocean front property, perhaps only for a
short time. Gwinnett County is just East of Atlanta.
Stephen L. Bening

Dear Mr. Benning:

Please add my number to your PRIVATE (do not make the # public) list
for contact in case of emergency. I have read the prophecies. They
confirm an "uneasy" feeling that has been growing on me for years.

What cinched it was the map. Yours is the FIRST map I have seen,
that confirms a vivid dream I was given when I was only 5 years
old. It was so vivid I have NEVER forgotten it.

We had then (over 40 years ago now) just moved into our then-new
home (in 1963)----I (only child) and my parents. My Daddy had
constructed a short (2 feet tall) cement block retaining wall in the
uneven back yard, that cut our back yard in half. As little as I
was then, when I stood on the wall I felt as though I was standing
on a cliff, with a sea of green grass before me.

Shortly after we moved into this house, I had the vivid dream. I
dreamed I was standing in my yard, on the cement wall, but it
changed and became a short cliff above a churning grey sea. A short
sandy beach at the foot of the cliff separated it from the sea, but
the waves were so violent in their churning that the spray was being
thrown up all the way to the top of the cliff. As I stood at the
edge of this cliff, I became aware that the fierce east wind was
blowing the spray into my face, and, though both were chilling, yet
I felt no effect of the cold upon me. I was dressed in a long white
dress (to my feet), and the dress and my long hair were being blown
against me and snapping out behind me in the wind (at the time, my
hair was cut in a very short dutch-boy style).

As I stood there, I became aware of a sadness so overwhelming that
my throat ached with the pain of it, as I stared out over the sea
and the desolate landscape. All I could think, over and over,
was, "If only! If only! If ONLY they had listened!!!", and there
was a knowledge of millions......gone.

As I once more turned my gaze to the land to my right, seeing the
curving shore as it curved out to sea to my left and then back in
again out of sight over some close-by hills, I suddenly realized
that it was late----very late----and I must hurry, hurry, or I will
be left. I begin to run in almost a panic along the sandy shore,
and to climb up the hills to the unseen shoreline beyond them, as
the dream fades out.....

What is curious about this dream, is that I live (still) in that
house, in Gwinnett County, GA, hundreds of miles inland from the
Atlantic, and even all the maps various occultic "seers" have
published of predicted inundations never showed the waters coming
anywhere near my home. Yet, I know this dream presaged something----
it was just too real. The map published on your site, is the first
I have EVER seen, that shows the possibility of the flood coming
this far inland, as I saw it in my dream.

Comet Impact Charleston, Illinois-Karen-2000 to 2004 #mi

Stephen L. Bening

Date: 13 May 2015 07:34:32 -0700

Early in the year 2000, my then three-year-old daughter had
repetitious dreams. Many a night would find her waking up, crying
horribly over the same nightmare: "I saw water going over the
mountain, (her little hand making an up and over gesture) and people
going 'blub blub' because they are under the water and can't
breathe." (While saying this, she covered her face with her hands).
I was very concerned while holding and comforting her, but simply
did not know what else to do. After her fifth or sixth repeated
dream, I finally realized what I should have done in the first
place - I prayed. I basically asked God that if He was trying to get
a message across, to please take the dreams from my daughter and
give them to me. That one prayer was answered immediately, my
daughter's nightmares stopped, and (within a couple of months) mine
began. My dreams are not the same as my daughter's; however, I
believe that they are connected.

In late May or early June of 2000, I had my first dream. My husband
was driving my car, and my daughter and I were passengers. Driving
down a country road, we passed a tall and shiny red barn on the
right. Straight ahead was a grove of trees on the horizon. Suddenly,
there was a huge upheaval of dust (like from an impact) swelling
larger and larger. My mind told me "comet", but I did not actually
see what caused this impact. Unafraid, I knew that we would be
killed instantly from the ensuing shock wave, and I told my
husband, "We're going home." (By "home", I mean heaven). When the
shock wave hit us, I went from being affected by gravity one second,
to being lighter than air the next. I was "in the spirit" floating
straight up, and was actually disappointed in missing a glimpse of
heaven, as my three-year-old daughter then awakened me. I could not
forget that nighttime image. It felt so incredibly genuine, like it
really happened - the air was warm, the leaves were green, the road
was bumpy, and the clarity of the outburst itself was all too real.
My husband was the only one that I shared my dream with, and it was
back to life as usual. Before long, things became unusual.

Driving in the very rural area of Lerna, Illinois, my family and I
were following signs indicating an available house. Shortly after my
husband turned east, I then saw the same red barn, and the same
grove of trees that I saw in my dream. The only thing different was
that we were in my husband's van, instead of my car. Needless to
say, I was taken aback, as I do not recall ever having that type of
experience before. To some extent, I expected an impact to occur;
but when one did not, I realized that I was being informed of where
this event would take place. While on this actual road, we were
facing the south end of Charleston, Illinois. However, that was not
to be the only peculiarity.

Shortly after this roadtrip, I went to a talk forum on the internet.
(I'll let you guys know it was Will's "The Hot Sheets"). There, a
woman (Hi, Stardanya) had left a message. She was concerned about
what others might think of her, but went on to tell of her
experience anyway. She had what she called a "vision" - she was
clearly awake, and not in bed. She was driving her car, when all of
a sudden she "saw" an expanding dust cloud, on the ground, "like
from an impact". She knew it was something that would kill many
people. The vision was upsetting for her, and I was stunned to read
this, as I had shared my own dream with my husband only. If that was
not enough in and of itself, a woman who worked at my daughter's pre-
school reiterated information that she had. When she found out that
I might take my daughter to a Christian daycare center, she asked
me, "Oh, you believe in Jesus?" When I told her that I do, and that
I believe that God raised Him from the dead, she continued, "Do you
mind if I tell you about a dream that I had?" I literally got
goosebumps then, as I just knew the dream would somehow be related.
She went on to say that she was "in her own backyard, when all of a
sudden she was encased in a huge dust cloud. She knew that she would
die, and go to heaven, but was not afraid because she felt Jesus'
presence all around her." It was now August of 2000, and I decided
to share my dream with my family and friends. My father-in-law, a
retired Baptist minister, told me that the two others coming forth
was the proof that my dream was a message from God. Through his
guidance, I learned that in the Holy Bible, 2 Corinthians 13:1b
states, "In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be

On August 23, 2002, I had my second dream. This time, I was at a
relative's house in Kansas, Illinois. Amongst the many people there,
some (including my husband and daughter) were all dressed up. I had
just left them, sitting at the kitchen table, to go to the front
porch. A storm was brewing, with dark clouds, a warm breeze,
lightning, and thunder. Several were on the front porch with me, and
we were viewing the western sky. Suddenly, a loud boom and a fire
told me that lightning must have struck Charleston, Illinois, which
rests directly west of Kansas. But those around me soon horribly
realized that the town itself was impacted by something huge. From
my viewpoint, the fire grew to fill the entire horizon, and once
again there was an ensuing dust cloud that grew ever larger. Knowing
that this event would take all of our lives, I realized the
individuals surrounding me knew it too - their anguished cries were
more than I could bear. My daughter came running out the front door
yelling for me, and as I grabbed her into my arms, the shockwave had
reached us and we were ripped apart. We were now "in the spirit",
being tossed about like clothes in a washing machine, for only a
second, before being pulled up toward heaven. I then awoke, but this
time I had an unrelenting message in my head, powerful and strong -
"Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved." (The
message was so strong that I had it printed in the personals'
section of my home's Acts 2:21).

On January 8, 2004, I had my third dream. Once again, my husband and
daughter were with me. It was a beautiful, warm day, and we were in
Wal-Mart's parking lot located in Mattoon, Illinois, but part of the
lot was a lake, and we were fishing out of it. This wasn't unusual
from my perspective. Suddenly, I hooked such a big fish that I could
not handle it, and I handed my pole to my friend Michael Landon.
There was no knowledge of him being a deceased actor; he was simply
my friend. Unexpectedly, a few people gaped at the western sky and
started shrieking, using their hands over their eyes like visors. We
all then stared into the sky, and witnessed a flaming comet. Being a
huge, burning ball of rock, it was about the size of a large house.
It sailed easterly overhead and impacted thunderously in the area of
Charleston, the flames and debris growing so rapidly that all would
be instantly destroyed from the ensuing shockwave. This was a very
real and genuine experience, and I actually yelled, "It's really
happening this time!" I then shouted to the panicking crowd, "Don't
be afraid, just ask God to take you Home!" But then, abruptly, as if
right at the moment we would have been killed, my family and I were
being helped by a policeman into his car to be taken home. For some
unknown reason, we were without transportation. I then realized this
event did not yet happen. Only then, did I have the thought that I
should tell this officer about my dreams, so that he could be
prepared for this future event. I then awoke.

In mid-March of 2004, I awoke with a very strong message: "The rest
of the world will be told that [the actual comet impact] is a
terrorist attack."

3 Asteroid Dream-Miss Bening-03/08/2004 #mi

Stephen L. Bening

Date: 13 May 2015 07:04:17 -0700

My 8 year old daughter had this dream early last Monday morning, March 8, 2004:


She was in a place, and people were running around, very scared.  Everyone was terrified, and knew that the asteroids were going to fall.


She began telling all of these people that they should go to the church.  So, many people began to go to the church, and once there, they began to worship.


But, she felt in her heart that something was very wrong as she listened to the singing in the church.


Then, she saw the three asteroids, as they began to fall, and the dream ended.


She arose from her bed quickly, and woke up her mom, telling her about the dream.  It was 3 A.M. when she woke her mom.


(My daughter just asked Jesus to come and live in her heart on Saturday, February 28, 2004.)

3 Asteroids Dream-Brandy-03/01/2004 #mi

Stephen L. Bening

Date: 13 May 2015 06:59:34 -0700

Last Friday night (2/27), I went to see the movie “The Passion” in a late viewing, and arrived back at home after 2 A.M. on the 28th.


I felt strongly compelled to check my email, even though I was very tired.  There, waiting for me, was this report of a dream, had by a 17 year old Christian girl named Brandy.  Brandy and her mother are both Christians.


The report really caught my eye, because according to the letter, Brandy received the dream on 2/24-2/25, which was exactly the same day that my #2 daughter had her dream about Three Asteroids heading toward Earth, and woke me at 2 A.M. to report it. 


Brandy’s mother has since provided me with more of the details of what Brandy received.  Here is the report.  There is much to interpret here.  Carol told me that she and Brandy have no history with any prophecy concerning asteroids or comets.  Carol was reading the news on February 27th, and came across the report that the Earth was almost put on an asteroid impact alert on January 13, 2004 by the astronomers who search for the NEO’s (Near Earth Objects).  After she read this news article, she remembered the report that Brandy had given her about the dream, searched the internet for other prophecies about asteroids, and found my website,



Stephen L. Bening



Brandy’s Three Asteroid Dream-2/25/2004


It was Wednesday morning the 25th of February that Brandy woke up at 8:40 A.M..  She had slept in that morning because she had gone to bed at 12:00am Wednesday morning on the 25th.  She was tired and it was the day before my birthday (26th) so I remember that part clearly.  So she had the dream on the 25th for sure.  She does not remember anytime waking up during the night so far in her memory, so she is not certain of the exact time she had the dream.


The sun was setting in the beginning of this dream.  (Brandy) was walking down a dusty road in the mountains, while cars were driving up the road.  They dusted her in passing and she felt like they didn't care what they were doing to her, but they were just passing her by like she wasn't even there.  She wanted to get off the road and she saw (8) four wheelers coming up the road and one of them was white.  (I must add that we have a place in the mountains and we have 4 wheelers and we are usually up there in the good weather (spring/summer) riding our 4 wheelers).  (This is also a place that has a prophetic story to it as well:  it is a future place of refuge that the Lord has revealed to this family)


In the dream...she saw 3 people on the white, four-wheeler.  It was bigger than all the others and it stood out from the others.  She decided to get on and became part of the 3 when she got on it. 


She got on it after she witnessed the other 4-wheelers were doing dangerous things on the road and thought that they were going to ride off a mound.  She felt this was unsafe. 


She said in the beginning all the  4-wheelers were lined up and were going to give her a ride because she didn't want to walk because the road was dusty. As she rode down the hill on the white 4-wheeler she looked back in the rear view mirror and saw only one set of headlights.


Then she mentioned to me that she noticed it was getting dark out.  Because she only saw one pair of head lights she worried for the others because she did not know where they went. 


Next scene: She ended up at a picnic table with her father and sister and myself (mother) with her head down on the table and looked up and saw something coming down from the sky falling at an angle and knew in the dream it wasn't a falling star- that it was something more.  It crossed the sky and she thought it was Jesus coming back. 


She started to pray and prepare herself spiritually and ask forgiveness that she would enter into heaven.  When she was done praying she noticed nothing happened.  She figured it wasn't Jesus coming and looked at what ever it was that had hit the ground and it was far away.  She saw gold particles behind it hit like a fire work.  She felt confused and knew that it wasn't Jesus coming. 


Then, she saw a second object, which was red.  Not much was given to her about this one.


Then, she saw the third one.  It came closer to us in the trees and it lit a circle of fire and only burnt the immediate area where it hit.  Nothing else was affected. 


The picnic table is an interesting detail to me because of a dream my oldest daughter had back in the year 2000.  In the dream we were in the mountains and something happened and people were walking around like in a daze or shock.  Arnold Schwarzengger was there with fear in his eyes: at the time he was not even a governor.


I will also add that my oldest daughter said that in her dream we all knew it wasn't the rapture yet but soon after that event, it would take place.  That is where we were sitting on a picnic table. Note: Where our place is in the mountains there are a lot of camping areas.) I listened to a prophet recently on the Prophecy Club (Apostle David E. Taylor) and this seemed to back up that dream sequence.

Florida Great Flood Vision-Gloria Lopez-01/15/2004 #mi

Stephen L. Bening

Date: 13 May 2015 06:53:02 -0700


Recently, I felt the leading of the Lord to do some family relocation.  In the process, I was going to consolidate my resources, and move my office into my home in Hollywood, FL.


My ex-wife and I get along quite well (She had departed from me in 1999), and she was in agreement back in November, that she needed to find a place for herself and the two children to live.  I assured her that I would assist as needed.  As time passed, nearing the January 5, 2004 expiration date of my lease, I had a growing concern that she was not working very hard to find a new place to live.  My suspicions were confirmed on New Years eve, when she told me that she was not able to find a place to live.  She asked me to find a place for her and the children.


Now, the pressure was on.  I had just a few days to find an apartment, sign a lease, and arrange a move for her on the 5th of January.


I evaluated several potential locations that I had found by internet search, but all failed for one reason or another, and I found myself driving around on the afternoon of Friday, January 2, crying out to the Lord.  I told him that I needed that type of special geographical guidance that He has given me in the past at specific times.  So, I began to praise the Lord in song, singing along with a recording, and then, praying in the Spirit, I began to drive along.


After a few minutes, I heard that familiar voice, instructing me to search the streets very near to my house in Hollywood, and I saw a for rent sign, and went to check it out.


The owner was Gloria Lopez, a woman of about fifty: originally from Guatemala.  We looked at the small duplex apartment together, and I realized that even though it was small, it was my only available choice.  I was out of time.  I needed to begin the move very soon.  Additionally, I had this feeling in my Spirit that this was the place.  God’s peace was upon me.


I began to talk with her, and I mentioned that I had been praying to find a place for the family, and what our circumstances were.  She was suddenly excited that God had led a Christian to her, as she was also a Christian, and had been praying for a believer to occupy the apartment.  We began to share, and then we prayed together and God’s presence strongly filled the room.  I knew this was a divine appointment, and that God had found a home for my ex wife and my two children, and after confirming this with my ex on the telephone, we signed a lease.


We anointed the property with oil and prayed through the house, and we shared regarding ministry.  Gloria had been leading a home group in that little apartment, and a few people had been saved in it just a few days before.  Gloria also told me of many visions she had received, and I began to be curious.  Gloria had no idea that I was a prophet, but she was sharing her prophetic ministry with me, and I was there, quiet, just waiting eagerly for a moment to speak about my experiences.


Suddenly, before I could get a word in edgewise, Gloria said she had recently had a vision that she just had to share with me.


In the waking vision, she was standing, looking at the sky.  Suddenly, she saw two dark, conical, swirling clouds, coming down out of the sky to earth. 


Then, she was high in the air, and she could see the whole state of Florida.  Everything was under water.  No houses or trees could be seen.


At this point, I fell on my face, and gave thanks to God out of fear and reverence to the Lord my God, and honored the King of the universe, who had given another prophetic witness to what is to come to his servant.


Holy is His name.  I humble myself before Him.

Great Flood/#17 Visions-Jim McCants-03/31/1999 #mi

Stephen L. Bening

Date: 13 May 2015 06:45:59 -0700

Stephen, this is the cover that I included with the folders I prepared and have given to family and friends.

Jim McCants



This information is given to my family members, Brenda’s family members, our son and daughter, and to any that has ‘ears to hear and eyes to see’.


In the Spring of 1999 while at Barney and Betty Englen’s home in Birmingham , Alabama I was shown 2 visions by the Lord.  This occurred after I had finished a 40 day fast on 1 Jan 1999 .  I did not write down the date, but as best as I can remember, it was in March or April.


Vision 1 :

I was shown a map of the US – in outline form. All the state lines were shown. Then, almost immediately, the map changed to show that Florida was gone.  Inland, from the Texas coast upward into New England , the land was gone.  When I say gone, I mean the coastline was set back inland from  50 to 100 miles .  This mileage is a guess on my part as there were no reference points to gauge the mileage.  Again, Florida was no longer there, it was gone!


Vision 2 :

About 20 - 30 minutes later I was shown the number 17 . This is how I saw the number.



Since then I have been asking the Lord for understanding of the number 17 in that vision.

Today, 21 Oct 2003 , I think I have been given the understanding.  The following 2 paragraphs come from a prophecy given by Stephen L. Bening on Friday 17 October 2003 .  I did not see it on Friday as we were in North Carolina and Tennessee .  Upon returning home yesterday, 21 Oct 2003 , I checked the web site listed below and found the posting that the 2 below listed paragraphs are included.


“I first became aware of these warnings early in 2002 .  Then, God spoke directly to me about it through His Holy Spirit.  After a time of deliberate and somber prayer before the Lord, I became convinced, through multiple confirmations of these events to me, and through the clear speaking of the Holy Spirit, that this event is a near term event:  IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN VERY, VERY SOON.  I suspect that it could happen this month or next.  Every year, I put a circle around the anniversary date of the flood of Noah as a date to watch.  God has, in the past, allowed things to happen on anniversary dates of former events.  This year, the Hebrew calendar date Marheshvan 17 falls on November 11 / 12 .  I make no such prediction as to timing with regard to that date, but it is set to occur very soon.  If it is delayed by the Lord, so much the better, but I do not expect a long delay.  There are multiple warnings in the Spirit, as to the imminent nature of this threat. 

The bible contains numerous descriptions of catastrophic events.  These events will happen in the future:  some in one place, and some in another…in diverse places.  We know, through prophetic redundancy and confirmation, that this great flood is going to affect the Southeast US coast from North Carolina South to Florida.”

The web site is: . If you go there look for “Messages” on the left side of the page. Then look for message # 8921 dated 17 Oct 2003 .


I now have the understanding that the 2 visions that I was given are related and go together. Marheshvan 17 is the name given by the Hebrews to the FLOOD.   As you take the time to read the printouts that I have included with this cover letter, you will see why I think the way I do about what is coming upon this country.


It is because God gave me the visions that He did – and those 2 visions line up with the visions and prophetic words that are included.  I pray that God will give you “eyes to see and ears to hear”  and you will enter into prayer concerning what you should do.


For Brenda and I, I have registered with Stephen’s alert system and I recommend that each of you do the same.  God always used His prophets to give warning of judgments that were coming. And this country (this people) certainly deserve judgment!  I include 2 sets of scripture:


2 Chron. 7 : 14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

[This people, this nation – certainly have not done what God said to do in this scripture!]


Isaiah 6 : 9 - 10

And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. 10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

[The key to seeing with eyes to see and hearing with ears to hear is given twice in the 2 verses. It is the condition of the heart!  The heart of this people is not for God!]


Yesterday morning in Gatlinburg, Shirley asked me what had the Lord given me from the Word.  I asked the Lord and He said Jeremiah 15 . So I read it.  That scripture is for this nation, this people NOW!  Chapter 14 show that Jeremiah went into intercession 3 times for the nation of Israel , Judah , and Jerusalem .  Chapter 15 shows that God – in essence – said to stop praying!  Time was past for mercy!  I believe that time is past for this nation to have or even to expect mercy! He says that even if Moses and Samuel prayed for the people He would not change His mind!


I include Jeremiah Chapter 15 for your study.


Jeremiah 15 : 1 - 21

Then said the Lord unto me, Though Moses and Samuel stood before me, yet my mind could not be toward this people: cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth. 2 And it shall come to pass, if they say unto thee, Whither shall we go forth? then thou shalt tell them, Thus saith the Lord; Such as are for death, to death; and such as are for the sword, to the sword; and such as are for the famine, to the famine; and such as are for the captivity, to the captivity. 3 And I will appoint over them four kinds, saith the Lord: the sword to slay, and the dogs to tear, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the earth, to devour and destroy. 4 And I will cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah king of Judah , for that which he did in Jerusalem . 5 For who shall have pity upon thee, O Jerusalem? or who shall bemoan thee? or who shall go aside to ask how thou doest? 6 Thou hast forsaken me, saith the Lord, thou art gone backward: therefore will I stretch out my hand against thee, and destroy thee; I am weary with repenting. 7 And I will fan them with a fan in the gates of the land; I will bereave them of children, I will destroy my people, since they return not from their ways. 8 Their widows are increased to me above the sand of the seas: I have brought upon them against the mother of the young men a spoiler at noonday: I have caused him to fall upon it suddenly, and terrors upon the city. 9 She that hath borne seven languisheth: she hath given up the ghost; her sun is gone down while it was yet day: she hath been ashamed and confounded: and the residue of them will I deliver to the sword before their enemies, saith the Lord.

10 Woe is me, my mother, that thou hast borne me a man of strife and a man of contention to the whole earth! I have neither lent on usury, nor men have lent to me on usury; yet every one of them doth curse me. 11 The Lord said, Verily it shall be well with thy remnant; verily I will cause the enemy to entreat thee well in the time of evil and in the time of affliction. 12 Shall iron break the northern iron and the steel? 13 Thy substance and thy treasures will I give to the spoil without price, and that for all thy sins, even in all thy borders. 14 And I will make thee to pass with thine enemies into a land which thou knowest not: for a fire is kindled in mine anger, which shall burn upon you.

15 O Lord, thou knowest: remember me, and visit me, and revenge me of my persecutors; take me not away in thy longsuffering: know that for thy sake I have suffered rebuke. 16 Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O Lord God of hosts. 17 I sat not in the assembly of the mockers, nor rejoiced; I sat alone because of thy hand: for thou hast filled me with indignation. 18 Why is my pain perpetual, and my wound incurable, which refuseth to be healed? wilt thou be altogether unto me as a liar, and as waters that fail?

19 Therefore thus saith the Lord, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: let them return unto thee; but return not thou unto them. 20 And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee: for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the Lord. 21 And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.


I pray that you will give serious prayer to the situation now on the horizon.  Ask the Lord Jesus what He wants you to do.

Asteroid Vision-Virginia Boldea-05/25/1997 #mi

Stephen L. Bening

Date: 13 May 2015 05:59:11 -0700


May 25, 1997 * Virginia Boldea (daughter of Dimitru Duduman and mother of Michael Boldea, Dumitru's interpreter.)
        It was not a dream. It was late. I am sure it was past midnight on the 25th of May, and I had just returned from a hard day's work. First I had gone to a few villages to give help. Afterwards, I began praying for a few hours. I lay in my bed listening to a prophecy I had received.
        Suddenly, I began to see even though my eyes were shut. I saw an immense flower garden. The flowers were as tall as a man with a healthy stem, but the buds were blue and bent forward. Every flower only had one bud. A cloud suddenly appeared near the garden and it appeared to be very close to the ground.
        A man dressed in white stood on the cloud. He was slightly taller than a normal man and in his hand he had a trumpet in which he began to blow. The sounds that came out of this trumpet would turn letters which would then turn into words in the sky and then ignite, burning up the heavens. I did not understand the writing because it was an unknown tongue. I did, however, recognize that it was in Hebrew.
        There were a handful of comets in the sky which looked to be peaceful. Suddenly three of them, all different sizes, began to head toward the earth. When they hit the ground, there was total devastation. As I looked up, the sky turned black and I saw thunder. The thunder was also black. A dark cloud lifted up and it began to rain. When I looked closer I saw that it was not rain but drops of blood.
        As I looked to my left, I saw another man standing on another cloud. He was very tall, dresses in white, with his hands raised high. Each time he moved his hands, fireballs would come out of his fingers. I looked, awestruck, at the man's height and the way his face shown and radiated. Then a powerful voice said: "Remember what I have shown you. This will be the beginning of the pain that I will allow upon the earth." He repeated this phrase again, after which he spoke to me: "You prepare yourself, be strong, and draw close to me with fasting and prayer for I will come to show you things more terrifying than these." Then everything disappeared.

3 Asteroid Vision-Ann Peterson-04/02/2003 #mi

Stephen L. Bening

Date: 13 May 2015 05:55:03 -0700

Dear Stephen,
Here is the account of the vision dealing with the
comets and the destruction to befall America that I
was given.

In April 2001 I was moved to ask God what was
coming at us. The question was as generic as
that...but not the answer. I was then shown North
America on a globe. I saw three balls of fire
streaking across the globe. One hits in the Gulf of
Mexico...another hits near the east coast of
Florida...and the third is further out in the
Atlantic. I then see America get smaller. Florida
is washed over as well as much of the east coast and
the coastal areas of the Gulf. I asked if people
would be warned of this event in any way. I was told
that this was the warning. I asked again about the
others that did not hear or see initial warnings. I
heard that there would be a very small window of
opportunity for people to get out of harms way...but
most would still not listen. Then the only
"close-up" view I got was of was a death
trap...and those were the words I heard too. Then I
was shown a short period of relative stillness then I
saw the middle of America rise up, then separate into
two land masses with a great body of water between the
two halves. When I inquired about what I was to
do...I live In Florida...I was shown a specific area
in North Carolina that I had to be at. I was also
told I would be there before this happened. I am
currently planning my move for asap. If finances had
allowed I would be there now...but things being as
they are I will be there in the next two months. I
cannot even begin to list all the ways God has
confirmed this for me.

3 Visions-Asteroids-08/18/2001-John Lallier #mi

Stephen L. Bening

Date: 13 May 2015 05:49:33 -0700

Vision 1

The Lord took me in the spirit to outer space and I saw very dim stars.
the lights came on and I saw an asteroid, brown in color, coming to the
planet earth.

Vision 2

The Lord took me in the spirit and showed me driving down the east coast
Florida and back up the west coast. When I got to Orlando, the Lord cut
Florida in half and I said, ah Lord have mercy?. He said No more mercy.

Again I asked Lord have mercy? and again He repeated , No more mercy. I
asked Him, Lord why are You doing this?. He answered death of the
innocents. I saw south Florida, Kissimmee to Miami, underwater. Then He

showed me portable buildings stacked like a train all connected
together. The
buildings were full of people with legs and arms missing. I ran into the
buildings and there was no end to them.

Vision 3

I saw an asteroid race right by Florida. What a horrible sound it made
as it
hit us. Then I saw helicopters and out of them came men with guns. When
came to me, I disappeared. Then I was somewhere else and I put out my
and an apple was their and I ate it. The Lord will take care of His true
servants, have no fear.

Lethal Challenges To America's Churches #mi

Stephen L. Bening

Date: 23 Mar 2015 09:56:26 -0700

Prophet Stephen Bening~Prophecy~Prophet~Prophetic~Ministry

The Holy Spirit has helped me to identify several challenges that face churches in America today. Many churches have already succumbed to most or all of them. That is sad in that one or two of them is probably sufficient to defile the whole lump. Nevertheless, there may be a few elders, pastors or other five fold leaders who will hear the warning and heed it. Judgement begins in the house of God and these are the things He will be looking for.

This was presented in our meeting of the Church of Jesus Christ meeting in Broward County, Florida on Sunday, March 22, 2015. Our meetings allow free participation of all members. Member comments are presented after each point where significant comments were made by members.


2 Peter 1:4
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
God has called His church to be salt and light. We are to bring purification. We are to hold back gangrene and decay in the society. We are not to lead the world into that rot and decay.
Member Comments
a) Let your light shine bright enough to blind the enemy. In that way, you will turn the confusion around that he seeks to unleash on you.
b) Rotten things leave a bad taste in your mouth. Many people have their first christian exposure in such a rotten place and they are turned not only against church, but against Jesus as well.
c) Watch the inputs to your soul: be careful what you see, hear and say. Jesus said that those things that defile us come from within.
d) The scripture says that lust is in the world and that we must escape it. If we do not, we become part of the problem rather than part of the solution. You cannot participate in the divine nature unless you escape and overcome these lusts.
e) A corrupt church can result from rot in the leadership or defilement in the members. Either one can cause the communion cup to be dirty. You can become sick, unable to receive healing, or worse.

2 Corinthians 9:7
Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
The word "necessity" (Grk Anagke) has in it the feeling of compulsion. The giver is placed under some pressure to give. He or she literally is made to give. It is turned into a legal obligation, rather than a loving expression. I tell you by the Holy Spirit that this scripture should be properly applied to all giving by members of a New Testament Church. This includes the imposition of tithing. There can be no adding of a tithing law to Christians. Addition of one law makes one an obligor to keep the whole law.
Member Comments
a) Some churches are requiring members to bring in pay stubs for examination by the pastor. Such pressure is driving many people away from the faith entirely.

1 John 3:18
My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
Many are gathered around a first family famous for flashing the pearly whites and turning on the biggest smiles you have ever seen. They are talkative and aggressively friendly but is all that apparent love the real thing? It's got to be real, right? Real love in the church amounts to more than a smiling greeter at the door. Look deeper. Are those who struggle really helped? True love has a cost. Are there those in your church leadership who are ready to pay it? I know that no one will listen to you if they do not believe you care about them, but do you REALLY care about them?
Member Comments
a) When you are in the house of your friends, real love will flow to you. They want to do things for you and they do not want to take your money from you. Are you in a house of friends or in a business enterprise?
b) Real love flows naturally: it is never forced.
c) God says that without love (charity), you have nothing

John 4:24
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
The worship God is looking for is true and honest. We are not to put forth a presentation, completely lacking of the presence of God and then proclaim to everyone just how wonderful the presence of God is in this place. He is either here or He is not. The true worshiper will know. We must worship with intentionality: doing anything to come into and to remain in His presence. We must develop an aversion to those things that drive Him away and grieve His spirit. Place the announcements at the beginning, anyone?
Member Comments
a) The real need is for the genuine worship, not acting. We MUST worship in Spirit (what is that?) and Truth (what is that?). Do we really know? God demands this but only of those who make the decision to come after Him. For those, He requires that we must romance Him. He wants not just worship words and worship songs but worship actions and deeds flowing from us 24:7.

Eph 4:11-13
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
One man exercising all structural and functional control of a church is not biblical and not Godly. Somehow, the top has got to be lopped off of the pyramid or Jesus will do it for us.

a) Today, ministries that used to operate from inside of the church now spring up outside of it, like intercession training, prayer, evangelism and other things. These things do not operate as well on the outside because they operate without the unity of the Spirit that commands the blessing from God.
b) We are limited today because we limit ourselves: three or four can preach on Sunday morning, others can give comments. But risk is involved and discernment must be high.
c) Moses could not do it all by himself and neither can you Mr. Pastor. It caused Moses to miss out on the promised land. What will you miss out on?
d) Organism is what a true church is, but the devil always wants to turn it into an organization.

Luke 21:36
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
We must pray. What we pray must be led by the Holy Spirit. We must watch for all things God is doing. We must also keep an eye on what is transpiring on the Earth. We must pray God's will and avoid a focus on praying to satisfy our own lusts and desires.

2 Timothy 4:2
Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
Cotton candy sermons are doing no one any real good. Sin must be confronted. Warnings must proceed from a Godly pulpit. Prophecy is not only for the prayer room

a) Preaching today is a program and the result is that it is programming the people. The goal is to turn them into tithe paying robots who have no need to hear from God about how to give the resources that God places into their hands.

Acts 7:51
Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.
It is not for no reason that the scripture declares "quench not the Holy Spirit, despise not prophesying". Our natural inclination is to hate any hint that what we are doing is wrong and offensive to God. The Holy Spirit willingly takes charge of our sanctification, but woe to the man who believes the process is complete.

Hebrews 5:14
But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
God gives discernment to those who diligently seek Him and ask Him for it. We need so much more of this than we presently have. We need to be able to look and listen beyond that which we can see with our eyes and hear with our ears: to look down under the hood of a man's life; to be able to see those desires and lusts he has within him that will suddenly break forth to destruction.

Acts 3:19
Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
Repentance and conversion: the most ignored requirements for eternal life and salvation. The whole bible is true, not just a few verses quoted out of context. We cannot focus on those parts of salvation that are quick and easy and completely performed by God and ignore those elements where He has clearly stated that something is required of us.

Luke 14:26
If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
Church growth and filled seats is not the only assignment Jesus gave us. Are we developing and equipping the saints?
