Do You Remember This Prophecy?
Wilkerson’s Warning in 2001
In August 2001 David Wilkerson paused during his sermon and, with uncontrollable sobbing, warned Russian pastors with these words: “A time is coming…there won’t be many meetings like this anymore…so God has to do it now…Did you hear what I prophesied…do you understand? There won’t be many more meetings like this…I know it.”
After the fall of communism in 1990 this type of prophecy didn’t seem too likely to ever happen. There were no signals of any kind that Christians would soon face severe restrictions. Many thought and said that there is no way they would return to the old Soviet style of rule. But it has happened. This prophetic word is coming to pass before our eyes.
The New Reality
The Church in Russia is now faced with a bleak new era. The signs are evident, Russia is threatening to close down religious freedom once again. What does it mean for a country when the Gospel message is forbidden and banned? By forbidding their people to hear the Gospel, Russia is throwing out their only chance for spiritual healing. Atheism is akin to an immune deficiency, opening the door to a myriad of diseases. The Gospel is the cure-all medicine for every spiritual disease.
