My Prophetic Mantle came upon me about four years before I came to know Christ. It occurred the morning after graduating from high school in June of 1969. Coming back from our overnight graduation party, as we came into our home town on busses, we witnessed the aftermath of two freight trains colliding head-on. The carnage was strewn everywhere and piled up in the middle of the main route into town.
As our school buses continued into town, we weaved around demolished rail cars and emergency vehicles and giant portable cranes, as police directed traffic. We were all stunned as we stared at the destruction. As I looked upon the wreckage, I heard the Lord’s voice say: “This is what is going to happen to this generation.”
A last days generation racing towards a train wreck. Then five years later, a year after I came to Christ, I was handed David Wilkerson’s book The Vision, and I could not set it down. In 1973, David had a very graphic vision of what was going to come upon the world, America and the Church. He published what the Lord showed him, and now if you read the Vision, now titled The Vision and Beyond you will see how accurate his vision from the Lord was. That was my foundational call to leave the Marine Corps and pursue the studies required for fulltime ministry. You can listen to David Wilkerson’s book The Vision and Beyond.
Prophetic Warning: Then in 1998 the Lord began to stir me to warn others concerning what I was beginning to grasp – that the end-of-this-age is at hand. I wanted to publish these insights, but no publisher would become involved, so I learned how to become self-published, and in 2004 published my first book, The Horsemen Cometh 3rd Edition, Racing towards the Midnight Cry.
Online Prophetic Articles: In 2014 I started the Midnight Cry Prophetic Commentary website. You can review my blogs since then and track what the Lord has been showing me: Midnight Cry Prophetic Commentary.
