The following is an excerpt from the beginning of David Wilkerson's 1985 book Set the Trumpet to Thy Mouth. David Wilkerson heads World Challenge, Inc., P. O. Box 260, Lindale, TX 75771. His book is available at their website for $3.00. David writes:
"America is going to be destroyed by fire! Sudden destruction is coming and few will escape. Unexpectedly, and in one hour, a hydrogen holocaust will engulf America -- and this nation will be no more.
"America has sinned against the greatest light. Other nations are just as sinful, but none are as flooded with gospel light as ours. God is going to judge America for its violence, its crimes, its backsliding, its murdering of millions of babies, its flaunting of homosexuality and sadomasochism, its corruption, its drunkenness and drug abuse, its form of godliness without power, its lukewarmness toward Christ, its rampant divorce and adultery, its lewd pornography, its child molestations, its cheatings, its robbings, its dirty movies, and its occult practices. In one hour it will all be over. To the natural mind it is insanity to come against a prosperous, powerful nation and cry out, 'It's all over! Judgment is at the door! Our days are numbered!' The Church is asleep, the congregations are at ease, and the shepherds slumber. How they will scoff and laugh at this message. Theologians will reject it because they can't fit it into their doctrine. The pillow prophets of peace and prosperity will publicly denounce it.
"I no longer care. God has made my face like flint and put
steel in my backbone. I am blowing the Lord's trumpet with all my
might. Let the whole world and all the church call me crazy, but I
must blow the trumpet and awaken God's people. Believe it or not,
America is about to be shaken and set aside by swift and horrible
judgments. Many other praying believers who have been shut in with
God are hearing the very same message - 'Judgment is at the door!
Later in the chapter-- an attack from Russia, and "The great holocaust follows an economic collapse in America. The enemy will make its move when we are weak and helpless... America will not Repent... God promised to preserve America only if it turned from its evil... This nation has not repented but has turned its back... I see Almighty God even now slowly turning His back on this nation. America is on the verge of committing the unpardonable sin by resisting the Holy Ghost. Soon, there will be repentance only for individuals, but not for the nation."
