The Vision Revisited
David Wilkerson

David Wilkerson author of a number of books including the frightening 1973 work The Vision which described ‘end-time’ judgment on the planet, is a resident of New York and attends a church that was at ‘ground zero’.

In a web posting days after the terrorist attack he describes begging God for mercy as he wept over his latest sermon with the smoke from the ruins of the World Trade Centre still visible from his study window.

Times Square Church was the closest to ground and being used as a base for workers and those feeding and ministering to survivors. The congregation was warned a calamity was
coming while it was in the midst of the seventh week of a visitation from the Holy Spirit.

A Mission's Conference and youth conventions had been planned a week before the tragedy - everything was cancelled and the church members were called to non-stop prayer. A holy hush had begun to settle over the congregation and one night the whole church sat in total silence for an hour – nobody could move. "I remember putting my hands on my knees to stop them from trembling because of the awesome presence of God," says Wilkerson.

The pastors began to weep and wail, crying out to God. "Then the Holy Spirit spoke clearly that it was happening because a tragedy was coming - a calamity was coming to this city and to the nation and we didn't know what it was.  Suddenly a calamity struck the nation and especially here in New York City," said Wilkerson.

"One network anchorman said this, and I quote him, ‘Just think of it.  Our two symbols of power and prosperity have been smitten in one hour.’  He didn't know he was quoting from Revelation 18:10, ‘.Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.’

  Germ Warfare and Further Calamity Foretold
  Paul Cain

Less than a week after the Twin Towers attacks, one of America’s great prophetic voice Paul Cain interrupted a conference in Kansas City with what he claims is a direct word from God.

In his statement on September 17, weeks ahead of any emergence of germ warfare Paul Cain warned this was the beginning of the end and now was the time to pray for revival. "The Lord said he is going to do a fast work."

He spoke of full stadiums, God healing the sick and raising the dead and many being afflicted "by germ warfare, or anthrax, or [polluted] water systems filled with deadly bacteria." He warned the Christian community to be prayed up and ‘ready to go’. "Take no chances. I wouldn't want to be sitting in front of a stupid television program or in a crazy movie house watching a worldly presentation or a movie taking the Lord's name in vain and dishonouring God the way they do, for anything in the world."

He said when he first became an evangelist people were healed but his desire was to get back to evangelism and the winning of souls. "I had that fiery evangelism locked up in me. I would preach and so many people would be saved in those days. Even the Baptists would have me preach for them, and some of the Methodists, before the charismatic thing was started. … I got away from that, and just started praying for the sick and preaching to the church. I'm getting back to the sawdust trail. I'm getting back to the old time, old gospel preaching, and try to win as many souls as I can, no matter what the cost."

Paul Cain says the events of September 11th have caused people to turn to God but he warns something even more devastating is coming. "Something more evil and more horrible is headed our way. We are going to have to be so full of God and so full of the Holy Ghost that we can withstand all of these onslaughts of the devil. You could kill every terrorist in the world, and still that devil would still be living to raise up new terrorists…."

"There has been warning after warning - prophetic utterance, one after another. Do you realize how many of these warnings actually reach the state department, and the FBI? I read some documents that were forwarded to the FBI only the other day that outlined some
of the catastrophic things that are about to take place….There are some very serious things set in motion at this very hour. … I don't want you to live in fear. If our lives are in alignment with the word of God, and we're living in obedience to the conviction of the Holy Spirit, and to the Word, we need not fear pestilence, nor plague, nor germ warfare, or even nuclear
warfare. The bottom line is, it will get worse. We will have all of these
things sooner or later. …There are things that are so frightening that men's hearts will fail them."

  Fear Not But Be Prepared
  Rick Joiner

"And on every lofty mountain and on every high hill there will be streams running with water
on the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall,"  Isaiah 30:25

Old Testament prophet Isaiah could well have been referring to the World Trade Center twin-towers tragedy - according to Rick Joyner the mountains could be governments, the hills societies or movements and the streams of water the "Word of God" flowing out across the land in the wake of the terrorist attacks.

He says the Word of God, truth, is now flowing around the world in a way that he has not seen in his lifetime. News anchormen and women are declaring profound truths from God's Word. "There is a heightened level of discernment to recognize truth on the part of those who just a week ago were scorning it. The light now shining on the earth does seem to be much brighter than any time in my memory."

Rick Joiner is one of the gentler, wiser voices I have come to trust over the years. His prophecies and wisdom seem tempered with a sense of order, not reactionary but attempting to look deeper into situations rather than rush into print with a "me too" doomsaying or legalism.

On the day of the attack he posted a reminder that Christians, are citizens of a kingdom that cannot be shaken. "In the midst of everything like this that happens, we must first focus on the Lord and His unshakable throne in heavenly places. It is more crucial than ever for Christians to abide in the peace of God which is not dependent on any earthly circumstances, but on the power of our Almighty God. We overcome evil with the counter-power of good. The counter to the fear and panic that the enemy will try to sow in the hearts of all those he can reach through this kind of evil, is the peace of God."

He cautioned that we "…see through a glass, darkly," and we only "know in part" (I Corinthians 13:12 KJV). His earlier words relating to the impending Y2K deadline as a ‘non event’ were similarly edged with caution to over-reacting and making assumptions about the end of the world. He was also ‘told’ preparations for Y2K were in fact grace from the Lord to help them be prepared for other events that were to follow.

Joiner and a number of his ‘prophetic friends’ have been shown terrorist attacks that would lead to marshal law in the United States for a time. While the escalation of warfare against terrorists and their desperate retaliations, could lead to that for a time.      

On the second day after the terror attack he got this verse: "They have as king over them, the angel of the abyss; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek he has the name Apollyon." (Abaddon means ‘destroying angel’ and Apollyon means basically the same, ‘destroyer’.")

"The first woe is past; behold, two woes are still coming after these things" (Revelation 9:12). I did feel a strong impression from both of these verses, and I do believe that there are more terrorists attacks planned, probably two more major assaults, just as this verse implies, says Joiner.

 Joyner’s advice is to resist fear, hold on to faith and to take advantage of "one of the widest open doors for the gospel in the last 50-years." He suggests the very intent is to attack the temporal things we place our faith in, economic and military security rather than faith in God.

"The main reason that America is so hated by much of Islam is because we put ‘In God We Trust’ on our money and then promote sexual and moral perversion and debauchery throughout the world. We not only do this with our movies, television programs, books, magazines, and other materials, but we also promote it with our behaviour. Islam views these perversions as the product of Christian nations, " says Rick Joiner.

"The revolution in Iran was ignited when an American ‘R’ rated movie opened in Tehran. The people rose up with such outrage that they determined to die rather than allow any more of the moral filth coming out of America to pollute their country. As the moral meltdown in America has increased many more Moslems have begun to share a horror of what is viewed as American moral corruption. As they look up at the great economic and military power of America against which they cannot compete, they feel forced to take desperate measures to try to stop it."

Some Christian leaders have inferred that the attacks on the WTC and Pentagon were judgment from God. "I do not believe this is true because these attacks have all of the hallmarks of Satan, and none that reflect the nature of God. The Lord can be severe, and He does bring judgment, but even if the Lord sends armies, or natural disasters as judgment upon a nation, they will always have a certain dignity and class with which the Lord does everything. I do not believe there can be any question that the attack on the WTC was diabolical in its nature and source. We need to get this straight if we are going to know how to respond in these times because this represents the coming of some of our greatest challenges in history, as well as our greatest opportunities."

Rick Joiner quotes the scriptures from Ephesians 6:

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual {forces} of wickedness in the heavenly {places.}

Therefore, take up the full armour of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming missiles of the evil {one.}

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."

The devil prophesied through Osama ben Ladin that the U.S. would "fear from North to South and East to West." That is the devil's strategy, and we need to determine that we are going to do what Ephesians 6:13 says,

Therefore, take up the full armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

If the devil has determined that everyone in the U.S. is going to live in fear, we need to determine that we are going to grow in faith, and impart faith everywhere we go. We need to pray for the Lord to raise up His people in every city, town, and village in America with great faith and courage, imparting it with great boldness to all Americans.

The devil has prophesied that fear will cover America, but the Lord has another word for us. A great awakening is coming to America and faith will cover the land from North to South, East to West. Every attack of the enemy will only result in more unity, with Americans arising to become even more bold and courageous than they ever have before.

Her posting on Friday, July 27, 2001

"For the Lord would say, 'I have brought you here at a pivotal hinge of history, and I would say to you, My people in the United States do not realize how much the need mercy. For even this nation stands upon a precipice,' says the Lord, 'and there is a time that I will either give this nation wings like eagles or they will plummet. For there is judgment at the gate that you do not even fully realize. For there is only so long that I, the God of justice, can wink at injustice. 

And I would say, you must fill the cup of justice and empty the injustice. For this is a season where there is a divine trade going on in the heavens - justice for injustice. Do not think that I will allow the economy of this nation to remain as it is if My people do not understand that there must be liberty for those whom there is no liberty. And I would say to you , you do not know how to cry out because My people do not know and feel the brunt of it until many times it is almost too late. But I have called you here tonight to begin to fill the cup of mercy and the cup of justice.' 

And the Lord says, 'Over the next 30 days there is a deciding moment... a moment of decision as to what I will do with this nation,' says the Lord. 'Do not take lightly what I have brought you here to do. Cry out not only for yourselves, but for you children and grandchildren. Cry out! For you have not seen in this generation a great depression,' says the Lord, 'you do not know what it is like to find work and not to be able to feed your children, but I say to you,' says the Lord, 'you are at a pivotal time in history where either there will be great revival in this nation or a great depression, 'says the Lord."

Generals for Intercession: 


On September 23 1857 Jeremiah Lanphier, a city missioner, began a weekly noon prayer meeting in Fulton Street, New York. At the first meeting six people straggled in to pray. The following week there were 22 present, which was at least a little encouraging.

But the following Wednesday coincided with the greatest financial crash in the nation's history. Banks closed, suddenly men were out of work, families went hungry. Soon the meetings were overflowing and within six months there were 10,000 praying every day in the churches of New York.

The movement spread across America. Theatres, churches and halls were opened for prayer and thousands came. One man reported travelling from Omaha to Boston and finding "a continuous prayer meeting all the way - a prayer meeting about two thousand miles in extent."

And all this prayer began to result in thousands of conversions. Soon the number of reported conversions reached 7000 per day. It is estimated that within a few short years this Revival resulted in two million converts. It became known as the great 'Prayer' Revival - one of the greatest moves of God in history. It is important to note how the financial cataclysm just before it had caused men to put their minds on eternal things - thus precipitating the Revival. Let us pray that the same kind of prayer will continue to build across the United States in this present hour. For God is our only hope. And Revival is our greatest need.
