Description: The first vision God gave David Wilkerson was in 1958, directing him to go to New York City. The second was a vision of tragic calamities coming upon the earth. The message was so frightening, so apocalyptic and discomforting, that Mr. Wilkerson could do nothing but kneel, transfixed. God divinely guided him to write down the vision, and one year later, in 1974, The Vision was published as a book (now out of print). Among the nearly forty books Pastor Wilkerson has written, several of the recent titles have had a prophetic message: Set the Trumpet to Thy Mouth, America's Last Call and God's Plan to Protect His People in the Coming Depression. These books of warning all center around strong, biblically-based messages of hope.

Description: Nothingness, a place where you feel abandoned. You love Him, you desire Him, you know that He is, but you feel that for some unknown reason He is silent. His revelation is not coming to you. He is not answering your heart's cry for a clearer vision of what you are going through. In such an hour, Jesus cried to the father, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (Mark I5:34). I made the same cry: "Father, all I want is to do your will and please you. Why must I bear this sense that I am on my own? Why do you not respond in my desperate time? Why is my soul so cast down with feelings of rejection and confusion?"

Description: When Jesus said, "Take up your cross and follow me," He meant, "You will go down the same path to death." A cross experience is when you think God has turned a deaf ear to your cry for righteousness and holiness. For a season your prayers go unanswered. And your heart rises up and begins to reason: "All I wanted was to be like Jesus, to walk in victory, to be a joy to Him, to enjoy sweet communion. But this? Why is there no clear way, no reassurance? Why is this darkness in my soul, this feeling of speaking into God's ear, yet He appears not to hear? Why does it have to be so complicated?"

Description: It is at this point in his crucifixion that Jesus broke through the devil's cloud and cried aloud in faith."When Jesus had cried with a loud voice, He said. Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit; and having said thus, He gave up the ghost" (Luke 23:46). Here is where the cross is most powerfully experienced. It happens when in my nothingness, I surrender my will, I quit struggling and striving. I now become wholly dependent on Him. The matter is now out of my hands completely; God has to take over. His spirit must take me into death and raise me up as a new man. I give up the ghost, the independent life of flesh.

Description: Death to all ambition. Death to boasting and trying to impress others. Death to doing anything on my own. Death to my plans, desires, will. Death to all my striving to please Him. And, most of all, death to my past flesh-faith. How many times have I struggled to muster up faith and tried to pump it up with promises? I repeated over and over, "Lord, I believe, I do believe, I really believe. I really, truly, honestly believe." But it did not work. (You can always tell a request that's of the flesh, because it comes with a deadline. We give God what we consider a long enough time to act, but when He does not perform on schedule, our so-called faith turns into ugly unbelief.)

Description: Death, it is the only way out of the Old Covenant and into the New. Flesh faith has to die. No more striving to believe. If I am to have faith, true faith, the faith of Christ, He has to give it to me. We have been given a measure of faith, yet if it is true that I can do nothing of myself, then this includes having His faith. That is why the scripture calls it "the faith of Christ."

Description: Are you sin-sick? Are you truly yearning to live a holy life, free from the habituating lusts of the flesh? Then get ready to die. Get ready to embrace the cross. The Old Covenant will bring you to your wit's end, to nothingness. When you have given up all hope of overcoming sin by your own human power and will, then you are ready to enter the glorious realm of freedom through the New Covenant.

Description: "For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died. And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death. For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, ana by it slew me. Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good. Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful" (Romans 7:9-I3).

Description: Right now you are in a spiritual wilderness, facing the powers of Satan. You can feel his army of demonic entities thundering down on you. And just as the Israelites were helpless against their enemy, you are helpless against yours. You have made all the promises to God you can make, and you have failed every one of them. But just as surely as God opened the Red Sea, allowing Israel to walk through on dry ground, He is going to open up your sea supernaturally. And you are going to walk through your besetting sin, through all of the devil's opposition. God is going to take you through your own Red Sea experience, so you will no longer have to fear the enemy.

Description: Micah prophesied, "The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf (Micah 7:16). The Hebrew root word for nations has a figurative meaning of "goy", which in turn means "a troop of crawling animals, vipers." Micah is saying, "God's people are going to grow strong through the revelation that he keeps his promises to his remnant. When they realize he has delivered them from the dominion of sin, they will be endued with joy. And this in turn will build their faith, releasing in them such strength that they will become fearless. In fact, the manifestation of Holy Ghost power in them will confound and frighten their enemy, the devil. It will stupefy all his creeping, demonic entities."

Description: Yet we can not pull down these strongholds by prayer alone Nor can we pull them down by having some preacher prophesy over us or try to cast them out through physical manifestations. Satan is not impressed by any manifestation, or by loud shouting, or even by our goodness. The only weapon that scares the devil and his armies is the same one that scared him in the wilderness temptations of Jesus. That weapon is the truth of the New Covenant, the living word of God. Only the Lord's truth can set us free. He promises to be God to us... to cleanse us, forgive us and cast away all our sins...to fill us with his Spirit.. .to lead, instruct and guide us by his Spirit, and put within us all the power we need to walk in holiness and obedience.

Description: According to Micah, here is the promise we are to cling to: "Who is a God like unto thee, that pardons iniquity, and passes by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? He retains not his anger for ever, because he delights in mercy. He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea" (Micah 7:18-19). In Hebrew, the word subdue means "he will trample on them." We do not subdue our sins; He will subdue them. Our Lord is going to have compassion on us, trampling all our iniquities underfoot. He will cast them into the sea, never to be held against us again. Think of the children of Israel watching all those Egyptian soldiers disappear into the water forever. Now the Lord is telling us, "Those are your sins, and you are going to watch them sink to the bottom of the sea. I am going to drown them all and wash them away for good."

Description: The very thought that God would respond in this way is impossible. What kind of God would refuse to deliver his own people because they still struggled with a lust? God will not abandon you at your Red Sea. Your temptations, habits and besetting sins may look like impossible roadblocks before you. But the Lord promises to deliver you, for his own name's sake. Our God is faithful to keep his covenant.

Description: Make this your prayer: "Lord, you have promised by oath to be God to me. You have said you would give me my own Red Sea experience. You have also said the devil would have to put his hand over his mouth, no longer able to accuse me with his lies. I stand on your covenant promises now, father. Deliver me, and glorify yourself in my life."
Youth Gathering 06

Youth Gathering 06

Description: You see. God's purpose for me can't be fulfilled by what I do for Christ. It can't be measured by anything I achieve, even if I heal the sick or cast out demons. No, God's purpose is fulfilled in me only by what I am becoming in him. Christ-likeness isn't about what I do for the Lord, but about how I'm being transformed into his likeness.
