2 Peter 3:9, "The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance."
In the summer of 1991, my grandfather gave a word that we would once again be entangled in conflict with Iraq. I remember it well, because after we put the prophecy in our newsletter, we received many phone calls from angry people at our Fullerton apartment, calling us everything from liars, to frauds because it had not happened. I was the only one that spoke English at the time, so I answered the calls. I told my grandfather about the first one, and he said, "tell them God is not on our time clock, we are on His." It hurt to have to answer those calls, because I knew my grandfather had only spoken what God had shown him.
Eleven years later, it seems that word is coming to pass. I am not writing this to say we were right, or to gloat, but because there are some overzealous ministries who have added to the original word, and I don't want there to be any misunderstanding. The prophecy, was simply this: That America would be going back to war with Iraq, and that Israel would involve itself in the turmoil. There was never any mention of nuclear weapons as some have said.
With that having been said, due to the small size of our ministry, I have had the opportunity to meet most of you personally. I have shaken your hands, I have looked into your eyes, and I know you are men and women of prayer. I urge you this day, pray for America as never before. As in the coming months we will discover more threats from within, and new enemies from without, the uncertainty and turmoil will continue to grow. The conflict with Iraq will not be as easy, or as quick as some would like to think, and as with any war, bloodshed is inevitable.
It is our duty as children of God, to pray for repentance, wisdom, and mercy. To pray for our nation, and our leaders, that their eyes may be opened, and their hearts may turn toward God. He hears the prayers of His children. May we, as Moses, stand in the breach, and pray the Lord turn away from his wrath. If only for a season, pray that He terries, for there are many souls yet to be saved, and many lives yet to be reached.
In His goodness, God has revealed all that is to be to His children. Not to bring fear into their hearts, but to cause them to be& fruitful, and use the time that He has allotted them wisely. Let us labor while it is still day, let us do all things as unto the Lord, and let us pray.
Ezekiel 7:12, "The time has come, the day draws near. Let not the buyer rejoice, nor the seller mourn, for wrath is on their whole multitude."
Zephaniah 2:3, "Seek the Lord, all you meek of the earth, who have upheld his justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the day of the Lord's anger."
