David Wilkerson's Economic Vision 1973
Key points to remember about this vision:
From the time the first country goes down, you'll have two weeks to get your money out of the bank.
America will come through this crisis---there will be a restoration.
But the nation will never be like it was before...
God is saying: Get our lives straight...Get rid of the idols...Seek the face of God in holiness...
God will be a wall of fire about you...And the glory in the midst of you!
It's about to happen---very soon, one nation, and I'm speaking prophetically--if I've ever heard anything from God in my life, I heard it ... Very soon a European or North African or Eastern nation is going to default on its international loan and when that happens, within two weeks, Mexico is going to default. Mexico owes $100 billion ---80% of it to American banks---and here's what is going to happen: about two weeks after the first country goes bankrupt, (we're going to survive that, because most of that (money of the first country) is owed to European banks---German, Swiss and French banks) but a second country is going to go down, probably Argentina or Brazil, and we'll kind of live that down and say: "Well, maybe it's not going to hurt," but two weeks after the first country goes down, Mexico's going to default on $100 billion.
And when the banks open the next day at 9 in the morning, $15 billion an hour is going to be withdrawn from our American banks -they're going to be running our banks---the Arabs---all the Latin American countries, they're going to be running our banks--and before the day is over, the U.S.A is going to have to declare a "bank holiday."
SIX MONTHS OF HORROR:
And we're going into six months of the worst hell America has ever seen---there's going to be chaos---not even the National Guard's going to be able to quiet it down---we're going to have to call out the whole U.S. Army.
Now I've had visions recently, for I've been in New York City and I was in Macy's in a vision, and I saw people walking around stunned because they couldn't get their money out of the bank.
Now I'm going to give you a word of advice, the first country goes bankrupt---I've documented this and I've got it sealed in an envelope, and I'm going to call all my friends and I'm telling you---this is the first time I've said it in a public meeting like this---but the first country that bellies up, you go get every dime you have---church get your money out of the bank--because there's going to be a 'bank holiday' and you won't be able to get a dime for six months. Now, of course, there's going to be -restored, but the nation will never be like it is again.
There's going to be fear like we've never known---judgment at the door. When I was at Macy's Dept. store in a vision and I watched people walking around stunned, they didn't know what to do, they didn't know what was happening; then a bunch of people walked into Macy's and suddenly went wild and began to steal and within an hour everybody---I saw the spirit of everybody in the store---they were robbing and stealing---they raped Macy's and destroyed five floors---Macy's was raped and ruined in a period of an hour or two.
That's just the beginning. Folks it's all in this book (the bible) ---we've been warned and warned and warned---you can't tell me God hasn't warned us. You can't tell me God isn't saying something awesome here tonight in this church...we better get our prayer life straightened up, our lives straightened up, get rid of the idols, as Paul writes, and seeking the face of God in holiness or you're not going to be ready for what's coming. God's warning, get ready and you'll not fear these things that come onto you and you'll start rejoicing, you'll not be afraid because your hands will be clean. You've been praying and God's building a wall of fire around you to keep you."
We'd like to teach you a song about God's protection. It goes like this.: "There's a wall of fire around me...There's a wall of fire between my soul and the enemy. There's a wall of fire that you can't see...Between my soul and the enemy. There's a wall of fire around me. May it be so with us all..."
CNN - May 22, 2006
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican stocks slumped 4.03 percent Monday and the peso lost ground as a rout in commodities prices and fears about rising U.S. interest rates shook the confidence of emerging markets investors.
The IPC benchmark stock index retreated 812.85 points to close at 19,369.29 points. It was its steepest one-day drop since Sept. 19, 2002.
The peso weakened 0.77 percent to 11.27 per dollar, its lowest closing in around 14 months.
Stock markets around the world have fallen sharply in recent weeks, spooked by concerns that U.S. interest rate hikes could go further than previously expected and by a sell-off in record-high commodities.
Latin American equities have slid from recent record highs. Brazil's Bovespa has dropped over 12 per cent since May 10 and Mexico's IPC index has lost about 11 percent. Both countries currencies have also been hit hard.
"The critical question going forward for everyone is to what degree is this a correction or to what degree is this a change in tendency," said Felix Boni, head of analysis at Scotiabank's brokerage in Mexico City.
"I would also say the fact we didn't have that much of a rebound on Friday in the Dow and here in Mexico would suggest ... there is something more serious going on," Boni said.
Recent falling prices for copper, gold, oil and other commodities hurt Mexican mining stocks.
Grupo Mexico, one of the world's largest copper miners, dropped 4.07 percent to 31.80 pesos.
Cellphone operator America Movil, the most heavily weighted stock in the IPC index, plunged 6.10 percent to 19.10 pesos and its New York-traded shares weakened 6.15 percent to $34.01.
Yields on Mexico's long-term bonds rose to their highest since early April.
The yield on Mexico's peso bond maturing in 2015 rose 14 basis points to 8.83 percent and the peso bond maturing in 2024 saw its yield rise 7 basis points to 9.04 percent.
"There's a perception that emerging markets, above all Brazil and Turkey, are overvalued, and that's ... hitting us," said one bond trader in Mexico City.
