In analyzing the prophetic material at hand, it is hard to escape the smaller storm / larger storm scenario. I have prayed that God would not suddenly bring the larger storm upon us without warning. I believe He will send the warning, at least for those who have eyes and ears, in the form of a smaller storm. The following are a few dreams and visions that, I believe, prove this scenario.
Note: This should be read with Judgment Delayed, a revelation I received around the end of 1998. Several dates given to people in these revelations have been delayed.
There was a large crowd of people, who all seemed to be Christians (my family included), working inside a big building which had large plate glass windows on two sides through which one could see the surrounding country-side. Everyone was scurrying around preoccupied with their own little projects, whatever they were. I looked up and saw a giant funnel cloud coming so I screamed, "There's a tornado coming! Everybody get out quickly!" We all ran out the side door of the building and toward the back where there were big holes pre-dug in the ground for a new foundation which was going to be poured -- a foundation (Christ [1Cor. 10,11 /Gal. 3:1]) for the rest of the building from which we had just come. As we jumped into the holes, the tornado passed over and completely disappeared. Everyone was relieved; and the next thing I knew, we were back in the building working on our various projects again. As I glanced out the window again, there was a great mass of tornadoes heading our way even faster than the single tornado which had come earlier. This time I was terrified as I knew there was no time for hesitation. I screamed for everyone to drop what they were doing and follow me and don't waste time looking back (Gen.19:26); because I knew if anyone hesitated the slightest bit, they would not make it. We all ran back toward the holes dug for the new foundation (1 Kings 6:46-49) (see * note) and started jumping into them. I noticed that down in the bottom were steel rods to which you could hold onto fairly easily and that the only way to see what was happening above was to let go of the rods. I screamed for everyone to stop trying to see (for we walk by faith and not by sight) what was happening and grab onto the rods. I could see many Christians letting go to see what was happening; consequently, they were instantly carried away in the storm. They were sucked out of the holes like rag dolls. [When the whirlwind passeth, the wicked is no more; but the righteous is an everlasting foundation (Pr.10:25). Righteousness delivereth from death (Pr.10:2).] There were a few of us left after the storm; and we went back into the main building, which was untouched by the storm. All the rest of the country-side was devastated; the hills and the roads were covered with debris, and there was complete silence. In the distance, I heard the sound of an engine; and I could barely make out a yellow Volkswagen. Although I could not see the people inside, I could tell by their laughter that it was a friend, named David Eells, and his boys. They were out joy-riding and spinning donuts on what was left of the dusty road. So I knew their family made it through the storm, too.
*Note: The main foundation for almost 2000 years has been that we are justified through faith in Christ's blood. He bore our sins. Another aspect of our foundation, which has only been emphasized in the last few years, is that he bore the curse of that sin. This, I believe, is the "new foundation" behind the main foundation only because of the apostasy in the Church. However, if we are to escape the Death Angel about to Passover the U.S., we must believe the whole curse (Deut. 28:15-68) was put upon the Lamb (Gal.3:13,14; Isa.53) and we have a legal right through faith to protection and blessing (Ps.91, and Ps.34). Is the blood on your doorpost? If you believe you do not have to bear the curse for as Jesus said, "Be it unto you according to your faith". Beware of willful disobedience, for it is not covered by this foundation (Heb.10:26-31 / Num.15:27-31 / 2 Sam.12:10-14 / Mt.18:35,35 /Mt.5:25,26).
The form of judgment that will be in this nation is that of war. One of the first things God gave me concerning the nation was a map of the USA. As I saw it before me there was a weather man standing to the right of the map of the US. He said, "There is a great storm headed for the United States and it's coming from the Soviet Union". I looked out to the left into the waters and I saw a great black storm cloud headed for the States. The voice continued and said, "There's a smaller storm that will precede this larger storm, it will hasten the coming, and draw in right behind it, the large storm. I looked and I could see the smaller storm cloud as it began to drift over the country and it stopped.
(Editor's notes in parenthesis) On Friday night, July 4, 1997 (Movie: Independence Day) I had a dream involving tornadoes. I was located inside of a beach home in the kitchen, serving guests and making dinner. It was in the evening (end of the day of grace). I was startled by seeing, in a treeless field (not bearing fruit Eze. 17:24) out the back (inside U.S.) of the beach home, a very large tornado. Two additional tornadoes dropped down from the 1st. (Judgment will bring division and more judgment.) I could not pay anymore attention to what happened after that because I was expected to pay attention to my guests (church), however, I knew that the tornadoes caused destruction. (smaller storm)
The next day my dream is fraught with clear images and distractions. The main distraction was that of a man (2 Cor. 11:2-4 False Prophet) that was romantically interested in me however, I explained to him that I was married (to Christ) and not interested in pursuing a relationship. (not a member of the Harlot)
While this was going on I went out the beachfront side of the beach home. The view I had of the beach was not a frontal view but rather a side view so that I could see not only the water but, I had a view of neighboring beach homes as well. Rather than being directly on the beach, the beach homes were running along a seawall (satisfaction: separation) and there were lots of trees and foliage (fruitful Jer. 17:7,8). Neighbors from other beach homes were outside on the beachside as well and it was early morning (beginning of the day of wrath).
All of a sudden a huge tornado appeared over the water (from outside the continental U.S.). Then suddenly 10 (10 horns, toes, kings, of the beast- Rev 17:12-18) more tornadoes dropped down off the first one and stationed themselves over the water. Neighbors were marveling at the sight however they did not seem to pay heed to the danger. They were in awe of what they were seeing but did not seem to respect the power. (Larger Storm)
I was running frantically trying to seek protection from the danger and at one point went down to the beach to urge this man that was in my dream and a small boy to come in out of danger. (False Prophets do not believe in coming judgment) At one point there was a soldier (military invasion) on the beach with a radio and he was reporting that there had been widespread destruction due to tornadoes and that in Katy (pure), Texas (Indian - Tejas = Friends or Allies / symbol -lone star = sign of Israel or the church) there was mass suicide. I remember thinking that it was odd to have mass suicide (those who are pure in the church will put to death self, repent, in judgment) due to tornadoes.
While I was down on the beach urging these two individuals to come in out of danger, I looked up, and a wall of storm was right on us. We began running up the stairs and at one point I was carrying the small boy but when I reached the top of the sea wall (Attaining to separation [sanctification] from the wicked/ Isa. 57:20 - see also Pr. 18:10-12) I was alone (Pr. 10:25) and suddenly became engulfed by water (Invasion of the wicked / Isa. 57:20) knowing I would be O.K. (Pr 16:7). The water receded and I could feel nothing but soft sand beneath me. I knew I was O.K. and woke up.
Editor's Note: "What is the smaller storm, and when is it coming so we may take warning?" I submit the following dreams and visions which I believe may explain the smaller warning storm.
I found myself in the middle-east. I was elevated in the air and looking down at about a 45 degree angle. There was a brown haze in the air (nuclear explosion?). I saw on the ground, in this desert looking terrain, a tremendous eagle. It was huge, larger than a jumbo jet, and the detail of its wings and feathers was awesome. It was spread out on the ground and I know that it had just died. For two hundred yards in every direction were middle easterners, Muslims, crowded around to look at the eagle. They were shocked. They could not believe that the eagle was actually dead. The thought in my mind was, why? Why did we do this? (smaller storm)
(Editor's note: Chuck Youngbrandt said that it was revealed to him that "Iran would fire a nuclear tipped missile at the U.S. armed forces in the Persian Gulf region wiping out the heart of our army in one nuclear fireball. I discern through what Jesus has both shown and told me over the years that this nuclear strike against the U.S. military by Iran will lead to a heightened tension between the U.S. and Russia over a planned U.S. response against Iran.)
For a year before Desert Storm I kept hearing tank tracks rumbling in my ears. Then when Desert Storm started the noises stopped. Now I see this vision! (This vision is obviously prophesying a great loss of American troops in the middle-east.)
January 2, 1998: During the early hours of the morning, I had a vision of standing on the shores of New Zealand. I was looking across the sea and observing a great long pall of smoke and flames rising very high into the sky. They stretched across the horizon.
A voice said to me quite clearly, "this will be in late '98". (See Judgment Delayed)
January 5, 1998: I had a further vision seeing a great wall of fire and smoke across the horizon.
I saw a heavy oily swell on the sea as though a great storm had just passed and everything was silent. My eyes turned to a great city lying in ruins. Some tall skyscrapers still standing looked like burnt out wrecks. One could actually see through them, they were only skeletons. Many were in rubble on the ground, there were burnt out cars and everything had a blackened look. There was unbelievable devastation everywhere -no life. Deathly silence covered everything. This had been a thriving city along the coast, maybe New York or another city.
The absolute devastation seen before me was quite overwhelming. Even corpses had an unusual blackened look - scorched beyond recognition. This seemed to be indication atomic searing.
It seems the Holy Spirit is trying to impress the urgency of all this upon me on this matter. This scene is very close, sooner than we think.
Note: I believe in what Stuart saw and heard and I believe he is a man of God. His opinion is that this vision represents the attack of the Russians from the sea on the U.S. My opinion is that this represents a terrorist nuclear attack on a city in retaliation for the U.S. role in the middle east spoken of in the afore mentioned visions. I felt that the Lord had spoken and confirmed to me that the Russians have given [not lost as we have been told] suitcase nuclear bombs to Libya. These may be used on a U.S. city. This could be part of the smaller storm. (Note: I wrote the following before 911) The Russians and Chinese are going to sponsor a covert war against the U.S. through terrorists before the overt war begins. This may be manifested in both the middle east and the U.S. Prophet Bob Jones saw in a vision suitcase nukes being smuggled into California. He has been warning people for over a year to get out of Los Angeles. Two days after sharing this in Nashville another brother shared there that he had been in Russia and spoken to a man in Yeltsin's government. This man told him that 126 suitcase nukes were missing from the arsenal and that they knew they had been sold to terrorists who were trying to get them into the U.S. and Israel. All this could also be a clever cover for Russia when these nukes go off.
Although this destruction has been delayed, it will not be deleted. Jonah cried by the Word of the Lord "yet 40 days and Nineveh shall be overthrown". (Jonah 3:4) The Ninevites of course repented and judgment was delayed until the Prophet Nahum again decreed its destruction about 150 years later. This time there was no repentance and destruction followed.
Isaiah prophesied to Hezekiah "thou shalt die and not live" (2 Kings 20:1) but Hezekiah cried unto the Lord and was given 15 more years. The promises made to us through the prophets will not come to pass for us if we rebel against Gods word (Num 14:30). The promises of the gospel only come to pass for those who believe (Rom 1:16,17). Therefore we can judge by the fruit.
Paul, speaking to Christians (Rom 1:7) said in Rom 2:5-10, "after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up for thyself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; who will render to every man according to his works; to them that by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and incorruption, eternal life; but unto them that are factious, and obey not the truth, but obey unrighteousness, shall be wrath and indignation, tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that worketh evil... but glory and honor and peace to every man that worketh good". Read it again, and repent and God will be with you even if he won't be with America! For ten righteous souls God would have spared Sodom (Gen 18:32) but he only found four (19:15) and one of those loved this world and was destroyed (verse 26). Loving the carnal life is looking back (Lk. 17:31-34). Percentage wise there probably still is not 10 righteous in Sodom but God will protect them, not it.
(Editor's note: This could tie several of the above revelations together and could also reveal what the smaller storm is.)
A destructive hurricane will hit the Corpus Christi area in September, followed on Sept. 19th by an earthquake in St. Louis. This hurricane and earthquake in September is a sign that in the following December an accidental Russian firing of a nuclear missile attack on America will occur. While the Russians try to stop them, 4 warheads get through. They hit Lexington KY, Columbia SC, Richmond VA, and just north of New York City. The U. S. counter attacks and hits three Russian cities. In this year North Korea will attack South Korea, China attacks Taiwan. Iran hitting U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia with a nuclear bomb, Russia invading Iran.
(Editor's note: Here is another testimony of a limited nuclear exchange, possibly the smaller storm.)
"Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets". (Amos 3:7)
I was downstairs trying to tune in the radio. My father-in-law came down the stairs and asked me what I was doing. I told him that I was trying to find some information about something that had happened. I shook my head and said I didn't understand why I couldn't find out anything about what had happened. Whatever it was, it must have happened far enough in the past that it was no longer news.
Then I looked out the dining room window. It was snowing. Why was it snowing, I asked? It's summer. It's not supposed to be snowing. I then went over to the thermostat and noted that the heat was on and the furnace was running. Again I shook my head and said, it's not supposed to be snowing; what's going on? What has happened?
Then I spoke with my wife and decided to go out and get some groceries. A friend, whom I did not recognize, came with me. We went outside, but instead of getting into the car, we walked pulling a wagon behind us. We got to the first corner, where there was a menacing crowd. We ran back into the house to get a rifle. We then were able to go down the street.
We came to the first store. There was nothing on the shelves. We continued down the street to the next store. There was nothing on the shelves. Then we came to the third store. There were just a very few items on the shelves. Again I wondered, what has happened? I didn't understand. The grocer said: "Well what do you expect, considering what has happened?" "What has happened, I asked?" There was no reply.
We returned home and decided to go down to the stadium and hear someone speak, in the hopes we would find out what had happened. We went and sat up in the bleachers and listened to the speaker, but we didn't find out what had happened.
We then went home. I sat in the dining room, gazing at the snow, shaking my head and muttering that it was not supposed to be snowing.
Finally I called out to the Lord in anguish. Lord, what has happened? The Lord answered me:
The Russians had launched a pre-emptive strike against the Missile silos in the Midwest [it was apparently a limited exchange]. They had taken out the missile silos. But our submarines counter-attacked. I was even told the death counts: 6.8 million Americans and 4.6 Million Russians dead...
Then I was in the dining room again, looking at the snow coming down in summer, shaking my head and saying that was not supposed to be happening.
This was the end of the dream.
