Here is the full transcript of David Wilkerson’s sermon titled “1973 Prophecy – The Vision.”
In this sermon, David Wilkerson shares his vision of coming calamities, including economic recession, supernatural disasters, filth and rebellion in America, and persecution of true believers. He predicts the rise of a powerful, antichrist super church and warns of future persecution of Christians in media and taxation of churches.
Listen to the audio version here:
Jesus, we desperately need Your power and strength to do what You’ve asked me to do tonight. I ask, humbly now, to give me the courage and help me to say it from my heart without fear and trembling, in Christ’s name, amen.
God’s placed me here tonight to warn of a coming hour of persecution. The Holy Spirit is my witness. This convention tonight is being warned here and now of an intense hour of persecution for all Spirit-filled believers. You’re to prepare to be hated, rejected, maligned and ridiculed.
Now, if you believe Acts 2:4 about a special endowment of power from on high, then you’ve got to also believe Acts 2:17. Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy and your young men shall see visions.
I saw a vision this past April, so frightening it staggered my mind. And for the past three months I’ve tried to shake it off, but I can’t do it. I’ve only had two in my life. The first, 15 years ago, took me to the streets of New York, and every fact of that vision has been fulfilled. I’ve been terribly afraid to share this vision up until tonight, for fear I’d be called a fanatic.
But the same Holy Ghost that prompted me 12 years ago to share the story of The Cross and Switchblade has prompted me tonight to share this vision with you. In this vision I saw five terrible calamities coming to America and the world.
