MAY THE LORD BLESS AND KEEP YOU IN ALL YOUR WAYS.
For the last two years I have been crying aloud, warning all who would hear that America is receiving her last call and that judgment is at the door. I did not say this was the end of the nation, but the last call before a financial crash.
I am writing this letter to you on Saturday, April 15, 2000. I have on my desk the headlines in yesterday's paper: "BLACK FRIDAY - BIGGEST ONE-DAY DROP IN HISTORY." The Dow fell 618 points - the Nasdaq fell 355. I do not know what is coming in the next sixty days. If the market bounces back, I can assure you it will be temporary. THE CRASH IS INEVITABLE - NOTHING CAN STOP IT.
How do I know this? I am not a prophet. I am but one of the Lord's many watchmen. I love this country, but according to scripture, America has committed a grievous sin that God will not forgive, and which he must soon judge.
History is repeating itself. King Manasseh "filled Jerusalem with innocent blood, which the Lord would not pardon" (2 Kings 24:4). This king led Israel into child sacrifices, and multitudes of innocent children were slaughtered. God swore he would not forgive that sin, and he would judge the whole nation for such crimes. A long spiritual revival preceded the judgment - but in spite of the spiritual awakening, God said he would not forgive the shedding of innocent blood.
GOD WILL NOT PARDON A NATION FOR THE SHEDDING OF INNOCENT BLOOD. AMERICA STANDS ON THE BRINK OF A GREAT CHASTISEMENT FOR THE KILLING OF MILLIONS OF INNOCENT CHILDREN. GOD HAS A CONTROVERSY WITH US.
In my book, God's Plan to Protect His People in the Coming Depression, I proved from scripture that our Lord will protect his people, no matter how vicious the storm. I wrote, "If we panic about our personal investments, we'll grieve our heavenly father deeply. Our fretting betrays a fearful attitude that says we don't truly believe he can take care of us." There will be suffering and great changes in everybody's lifestyle. But for trusting believers, God has sworn by an oath that he will sustain us - even by miracles of grace.
The worst thing any of us as true believers could do at this time is to stop giving to God's work. God has obligated himself to those who honor his word about giving. And robbing God in hard times is just as much a sin as it is in good times. Keep giving to your local church. Keep giving to honest, trustworthy ministries. Obey his word and see his keeping power work faithfully on your behalf.
I tell you - we do need your help. Yet we know that the God who has kept us debt-free and very active in meeting human need will supply all that is needed in the days ahead. God will not forget the poor, the homeless, the addicted in hard times. Thank you for caring. Love in Christ.
