NOTE:  Many of you will have seen the "URGENT WARNING" that
David Wilkerson sent out earlier this week. (If not then it is
printed at the end of this email). But first, here is the follow-up
encouragement that D. Wilkerson sent out after the 'Urgent Warning':

AN ENCOURAGEMENT - March 8th 2009
-by David Wilkerson.

"If the foundations be destroyed, what shall the righteous do?"

Recently I felt compelled to send out an URGENT message
warning of an impending great calamity - such that will cause even
God's elect to tremble.

One Bishop asked, "Is there no further word:  How should the
righteous respond to such a word?" I can only answer by sharing
what the Holy Spirit is speaking to my own heart and what I am to
do.  I shared that I was led in a practical way to lay aside a
month's supply of food - because I have witnessed the panic in the
wake of terrorism. That has to be a personal word for every
individual. This is what I hear the Holy Spirit speaking to my heart
concerning my own spiritual response to impending calamity. It is
simply this -STAND STILL AND SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD.

"And Moses said to the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see
the salvation of the Lord, which he will show you today--The Lord
shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace" (Exodus
14:13-14). This is the attitude of faith in the face of calamity. What
could Israel do on the brink of the Red Sea? Pharaoh's army is
pressing in, mountains are on both sides, and there is an
impossible sea ahead.  The flesh cries, "Do something!" The flesh
cries hopelessness. Can God's people dry up the sea? Level a
mountain? Fight a great army without having weapons?  They are
in what appears to be a dreadful, frightening situation.  God's
people tremble - and in this hour of trembling comes a word from
God. In essence: "Stand still. Fear not. This is the hour of
salvation. You are going to witness the pulling down of the
foundations of a world power.  But in the same hour, I  will fight for
you.  Hold your peace - be still and see my works." Beloved, my
warning is just one voice among many who are saying the same
thing. We may all tremble for a season, but those who truly know
God's Word will be quickly comforted by the Holy Spirit.  We will
be baptized with a great peace - a supernatural quietness - which
will be a tremendous witness to the fearful multitudes.

~BELOW is the 'Urgent Warning' that D. Wilkerson first sent out:

An URGENT MESSAGE - March 7, 2009.
-by David Wilkerson.

I am compelled by the Holy Spirit to send out an urgent message
to all on our mailing list, and to friends and to bishops we have
met all over the world.

AN EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY is ABOUT TO HAPPEN. IT
IS GOING to BE SO FRIGHTENING, WE ARE ALL GOING TO
TREMBLE - EVEN the GODLIEST AMONG US.

For ten years I have been warning about a thousand fires coming
to New York City. It will engulf the whole megaplex, including
areas of New Jersey and Connecticut. Major cities all across
America will experience riots and blazing fires—such as we saw
in Watts, Los Angeles, years ago.

There will be riots and fires in cities worldwide. There will be looting —
including Times Square, New York City. What we are experiencing
now is not a recession, not even a depression. We are under God’s
wrath. In Psalm 11 it is written,

“If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (v. 3).

God is judging the raging sins of America and the nations. He is
destroying the secular foundations.

The prophet Jeremiah pleaded with wicked Israel, “God is
fashioning a calamity against you and devising a plan against you.
Oh, turn back each of you from your evil way, and reform your
ways and deeds. But they will say, It’s hopeless! For we are going
to follow our own plans, and each of us will act according to the
stubbornness of his evil heart” (Jeremiah 18:11-12).

In Psalm 11:6, David warns, “Upon the wicked he will rain snares
(coals of fire)…fire…burning wind…will be the portion of their cup.”
Why? David answered, “Because the Lord is righteous” (v. 7). This
is a righteous judgment—just as in the judgments of Sodom and
in Noah’s generation.

WHAT SHALL the RIGHTEOUS DO? WHAT ABOUT GOD’S PEOPLE?

First, I give you a practical word I received for my own direction. If
possible lay in store a thirty-day supply of non-perishable food,
toiletries and other essentials. In major cities, grocery stores are
emptied in an hour at the sign of an impending disaster.

As for our spiritual reaction, we have but two options. This is
outlined in Psalm 11. We “flee like a bird to a mountain.” Or, as
David says, “He fixed his eyes on the Lord on his throne in heaven—
his eyes beholding, his eyelids testing the sons of men” (v. 4). “In
the Lord I take refuge” (v. 1).

I will say to my soul: No need to run...no need to hide. This is
God’s righteous work. I will behold our Lord on his throne, with his
eye of tender, loving kindness watching over every step I take—
trusting that he will deliver his people even through floods, fires,
calamities, tests, trials of all kinds.

Note: I do not know when these things will come to pass, but I
know it is not far off. I have unburdened my soul to you. Do with
the message as you choose.

God bless and keep you,

In Christ,

DAVID WILKERSON
