David Wilkerson, of David Wilkerson Ministries, is a well-respected founding pastor of the Times Square Church in NYC. He is a best selling author – writing the best selling book The Cross and The Switchblade among many others – which is about his work with gangs and drug addicts in New York, and he founded Teen Challenge which is a major international ministry to troubled teens.

Now it seems, David Wilkerson is talking about his latest prophecy: one that sees ‘an imminent earth-shattering calamity’ centered in New York City that will spread to major urban areas across the country and around the world. He says he has been compelled by the Holy Spirit to make this vision public and that this is all part of what he sees as a judgment from God.

“An earth-shattering calamity is about to happen,” he writes. “It is going to be so frightening, we are all going to tremble – even the godliest among us.”

David Wilkerson’s prophecy includes fires raging throughout 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,” he explains. “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?”

As an evangelical christian myself, I am always a wee bit nervous when national Christian leaders have these ‘doomsday-type visions’. I vacillate on whether it is a clarion call or fear mongering — and God help us if any of them ever came true!

Like the others who had ‘visions’ before him, David Wilkerson is a highly regarded mentor to other pastors in evangelical circles and travels the world holding conferences for other Christian ministers.

So I suppose we have two options with this David Wilkerson prophecy: we can take it seriously or we can laugh at it. History is full of prophesies that amounted to nothing but buffoonery. However, according to this report, in the three months before 9/11, people in the Times Square Church were constantly praying for the city because they had a sense that something terrible was about to happen. Sounds compelling doesn’t it? But, on the other hand, here is a boatload of prophesies from David Wilkerson that did not come true.

The truth is, most Christians do believe in prophecy. However whether David Wilkerson’s prophesy is true or buffoonery is, I suppose, a time-will-tell issue. You can read the full prophecy transcript from David Wilkerson’s blog here.
