There is a “Perfect Storm” coming to our nation. The synergistic power of this storm will be generated by a multitude of unique calamities, some rooted in natural disasters and others in human behavior.
The past few months this message has been burning in my heart. While praying and waiting upon the Lord there were two questions for which I sought confirmation: (1) is this message truly from the Lord, and (2) is this message intended for my own private direction in intercessory prayer for our nation, or is it for a public proclamation?
There are already many people with long, accurate track records of prophetic proclamations that are speaking out with regard to similarly worded predictions. There are others who are speaking predictions, not from the Lord, but from human nature and political aspirations.
This message is not addressing the validity of any of the voices being heard on local or national platforms, nor is it a compilation of their messages, or of their accuracy. This message is singular and its validity and accuracy should be discerned on its own basis.
Let’s begin by defining some terms that are used in this message, “A ‘Perfect Storm’ is Coming to America”:
Definitions Associated with a Perfect Storm
Dictionary.com defines a Perfect Storm as:
“a detrimental or calamitous situation or event arising from the powerful combined effect of a unique set of circumstances”.
Synergism, Synergistic, Synergy can be defined as follows:
“The synergism created from the close proximity of several unique calamities is a Perfect Storm system whereby its destructive power is greater than the sum total of the individual parts.”
The Scope of Calamities
America is entering a season of calamities that will impact the nation as a whole. While every state will not experience every one of the approaching unique calamities, the nation as a whole will experience the destructive synergism of this nation-sized Perfect Storm.
When these unique calamities take place in various locales and regions throughout America, contributing to the destructive synergism of this Perfect Storm, each calamity may be classified within one or more of the following categories:
The Scope of the Perfect Storm’s Outcomes
The destructive synergism of this Perfect Storm will result in the virtual collapse (in varying degrees and durations) of America’s strong points, both nationally and internationally:
- Financial Collapse: The historically significant collapse of the value of the U.S. Dollar, both at home and abroad, will result in the U.S. Dollar losing its value as the preferred currency of international trade.
- Societal Collapse: Many large cities will experience areas and times of the collapse of societal constructs, most notably in the area of law and order.
- Public Trust Collapse: The general public’s trust of governmental authorities at the local, county, state, and especially at the federal levels will collapse to its lowest point in the nation’s history.
- Military Power Collapse: The international community’s respect for America’s leaders will collapse, contributing to the collapse of the U.S. military’s reputation and perceived strength in the world to such an extent that its allies will be made vulnerable to imminent threats, and enemy-states will be emboldened to expand their influence and territories due to the U.S. military’s seemingly inactive status in the international arena.
- Medical Services Collapse: The medical arena will be brought to the brink of total collapse due to a massive demand and drain on services, and the lack of necessary funding from both governments and patients.
Divine Judgement or Divine Mercy?
The primary purpose of this Perfect Storm is to serve as a wake up call to America, for us to recognize that we as a nation and we as individuals are in dire need of God in our lives. We have been enjoying the blessings of God for many generations, blessings of stability, strength, wealth, and health. No, we have not been perfect, our historical records prove it, but He has blessed us in spite of our wrong doings.
However, America, we have treated God and each other in such sinful ways that they have accumulated to such an extent that the scales have tipped, and God’s mercy is transitioning from our being “temporarily blessed in spite of our sin” to our being “awakened by the lifting of His blessing because of our sin.”
“You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’
But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.
“Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with Me.
“To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with Me on My throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with My Father on His throne. Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.””
God is still in the Divine Mercy mode, He is standing at the door of our hearts, knocking loudly to awaken us. He is asking to enter into our hearts and lives again, to be welcomed and to be given the seat of honor at the banquet tables of our hearts, our minds, our lives, our churches, our businesses, our schools, our society, our governments.
The Perfect Storm is not a Divine Judgement, but please do not underestimate the severity of this season where we experience life without God’s blessings. This time of awakening will be very extreme, and many will consider it to be a judgement of God.
“If I am awakened, what should I do?”
Jesus Himself answered this kind of question about 2,000 years ago. Some people asked Him about a recent calamity among the Galileans that was rooted in human behavior, wondering if it was a judgement from God on those who lost their lives in the calamity:
… Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”
The word repent means “to change one’s mind and to change one’s actions.” When Jesus said perish it was a reference to eternity, not just this lifetime.
He went on to address a natural disaster related to the recent deadly collapse of a tower structure:
… “Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”
Jesus then culminates His teaching by telling this parable:
… “A man had a fig tree growing in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it but did not find any. So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, ‘For three years now I’ve been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven’t found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?’
” ‘Sir,’ the man replied, ‘leave it alone for one more year, and I’ll dig around it and fertilize it. If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.‘”
America, the Perfect Storm is a season for awakening, for repentance: changing our thoughts, beliefs, and actions toward the Lord God of the universe. During this season, will we become a fruitful nation, fruitful in Godliness, in loving God and Loving each other?
The clock is ticking.
