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.
