In the 1980’s, three different men, in three different parts of the world, had visions of a surprise nuclear attack on the United States. It is interesting to me that people claim to be Christians and Bible believers, but when somebody says they have received a vision from God, these same Bible believers refuse to believe it.
What really intrigues me about these three men is the fact that all of them had basically had the same vision. Also, from all reports these three men were all honest and faithful Christian men, who worked tirelessly for the advancement of the gospel. Therefore, I believe it would be foolish not to give these men, and their visions, serious consideration. Another reason to give these visions serious consideration is a warning from our LORD in the scriptures.
Mat 18:16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
God required at least two or three witnesses before the sentence of DEATH could be carried out in the Old Testament. Jesus also required two or three witnesses before the New Testament equivalent of death (SEPARATION FROM THE CHURCH) could be carried out.
The three men who had these visions of a surprise nuclear attack on the United States were: Dumitru Duduman, David Wilkerson, and Henry Gruver. Let’s look at brief biographies of each man and then we will compare their visions.
Our first witness, Dumitru Duduman, wrote an autobiography called: Through the Fire Without Burning, which included his vision for America. He was born in northern Romania. His father was a pastor of a Pentecostal Church, and Dumitru endured the terrible antichristian persecution of totalitarian communism. Over a period of about eighteen (18) years Dumitru pastored a small Church and smuggled hundreds of thousands of Bible into communist Russia, he was finally captured by the communist authorities, he was beaten and tortured for several months, and eventually Dumitru and his family were deported to the United States in 1984. Against his doctor’s orders, Dumitru continued to preach the Word of God up until he passed away in 1997. http://www.ubm1.org/?page=russians
Soon after Dumitru Duduman arrived in the United States he was given the following vision by an angel of God:
I don't know what it was, Brothers. I got beside the angel. He showed me all of California. He showed me all the cities of California. Then he showed me Las Vegas. "You see what I have shown you. This is Sodom and Gomorrah. In one day it will burn." He said, "Its sin has reached the Holy One."
He showed me another great city. He said, "Do you know what city this is?"I said, "No."He said, "This is New York City. This is Sodom and Gomorrah. In one day it will burn."He showed me Florida. He said, "This is Florida. This is Sodom and Gomorrah. In one day it will burn."
He said, "Don't worry. I will be ahead of you. I will make great healings amongst the American people. You will go to television stations, radio stations, and churches. Tell them everything I tell you. Don't hide anything. If you try to hide anything, I will punish you. America will burn."
"How will America burn? It is so powerful." He said, "The Russian spies have discovered where the most powerful nuclear missiles are in America. "It will start with the world calling for 'peace, peace.' Then there will be an internal revolution in America, started by the Communists. Some of the people will start fighting against the government. The government will be busy with internal problems. Then from the oceans, Russia, Cuba, Nicaragua, Central America, Mexico, and two other countries (which I cannot remember) will attack! The Russians will bombard the nuclear missile silos in America. America will burn." https://www.handofhelp.com/vision_1.php
Our next witness, David Wilkerson, started a street ministry to drug addicts and gang members in the late 1950’s. He founded Teen Challenge in 1958 and he later founded and pastored Time Square Church in 1987. He wrote several books, but his most successful book was The Cross and the Switchblade. David Wilkerson died in a car crash in 2011. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Wilkerson
The following prophecy from David Wilkerson can be found in his book, Set the Trumpet to Thy Mouth:
"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! Prepare, awaken!'"
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." http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/199298.Set_the_Trumpet_to_Thy_Mouth
Our third witness, Henry Gruver, began walking the streets of Phoenix, Arizona in 1961, at the age of eighteen (18), praying and claiming the city in the name of Jesus. He believes he has been called to walk in cities and towns around the world from Siberia to the Middle East in order to pray for them, and plead the blood of Jesus. He talks about his ministry in his various writings: Cross + Wise. You can read about his many specific visions in his FREE pdf book “Visions of a Walker”. The following vision came to Henry Gruver in 1986:
I was in Wales, on December 14, 1986. I went up on top of the Eagle tower in the Caenarvon Castle. It had eight points on it. Each of the points on it were eroded eagles. This castle was built in the 12th century.
I was overlooking the Irish Sea toward the North Sea—Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the tip of Scotland, Greenland, Iceland in that area.
All of a sudden I was up above the Earth looking down upon the earth like a globe. As I looked down on the earth, I saw all of these massive amount of all kinds of ships and airplanes. They were coming from up above Norway, out of this inlet.
They headed down between the United States and Europe. They literally covered the whole Atlantic. Then I wanted to see what was happening to the United States. I looked over on the globe at the United States. I saw coming out of the United States these radio communication towers. I saw the jagged lines like they draw to show that communications are coming out. All of a sudden, as I was looking down on them they began to sparkle down on the earth like dust. I thought “Oh no! They are not getting through! They don't know what is happening! They are totally oblivious!”
Then I began to see all of these submarines emerging from under the surface. I was surprised at how close they were to our boarders! They were in our territorial waters! Then I saw the missiles come out of them! They hit eastern coastal cities of the United States.
I looked over across the country where my family was over in the northwest side, and I saw the submarines. I saw the missiles coming out and hitting the western coastal cities.
I cried out and I said, “Oh God! Oh God! When will this be, and what shall be the sign of its coming?”
I heard an audible voice speak to me amid say:
“When Russia opens her doors and lets the masses go. The free world will occupy themselves with transporting, housing and feeding and caring for the masses, and will lets down their weapons and cry peace and safety. Then sudden destruction will come. Then is, when it will come.” http://www.americascomingjudgment.com/ProphecyNewsContent/Gruver.html
We see that all three of our witnesses received the same vision of a surprise nuclear attack on the United States. The first obvious question is, “Did these three men actually receive visions from God?” If we answer the first question in the affirmative, then we need to ask, “When will this surprise nuclear attack occur?”
First, if we believe the Word of God, then we should also know that God ALWAYS gives warnings before he judges a nation. Probably the most famous warning God gave was when He told the Prophet Jonah to warn the Assyrians capital city of Nineveh that it was about to be judged by God. The Assyrians were a terribly wicked people and were continually waging war against Israel and Judah, they even publically defied Jehovah, but God still wanted Jonah to warn them…against Jonah’s better judgment. Most Bible readers know the outcome, God FORCED Jonah to warn Nineveh, and surprisingly the whole city actually repented, and God stopped His judgment of the city.
What is so unusual about the story in the Book of Jonah is the fact that the Assyrians were one of the few nations that actually repented after a prophet of God warned them of their impending judgment. Unfortunately, most of the Bible is filled with God sending prophets to warn people of His impending judgment, the people usually ignore God’s prophets, and eventually God finally judges the unrepentant nation.
I know a lot of Americans are going to say, “We are the good guys, we are not like the wicked Assyrians in the Bible!” Let me say right off that I love America and Americans. Most Americans are usually polite and respectful, and many Americans will go out of their way to help people, America is packed full of Born again, spirit filled Christians. However, if you are honest with yourself, you will have to admit that the United States of America (U.S.A) is on the wrong trajectory. The U.S.A. is not getting better and better, it is getting worse and worse. It is estimated that the U.S.A. has killed more than 20,000,000 people around the world since the ending of World War 2.
Over 50,000,000 LEGAL abortions have been reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention since 1970 in the United States.
According to “recoverybrands”, Americans lead in nearly all categories of legal and illegal drug abuse when we are compared to European countries.
According to the New Testament, drug use is practicing “sorcery”!
Rev 9:21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their SORCERIES (G5331), nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
SORCERIES: G5331, pharmakeia
1) the use or the administering of DRUGS
3) sorcery, magical arts, often found in connection with idolatry and fostered by it
4) metaphorically the deceptions and seductions of idolatry
When people talk about the United States being judged by God, I have often heard the following quote from the Bible:
1Th 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
If you read the context of this quote, you will realize that the Apostle Paul is specifically speaking about the coming of the LORD Jesus Christ. When Jesus comes the second time, He will pour out His wrath on the wicked while at the same time He saves the righteous.
Unfortunately, when God removes His hedge of protection from around a nation and it is racked by war, pestilence, famine, and destruction, often times the righteous are effected just as much as the wicked. When the city of Sodom was invaded by the army of the four kings, righteous Lot and his family were carried off captive just like all the wicked people of Sodom. However, when God poured out His wrath directly upon Sodom, He delivered Lot and his two daughters.
Gen 14:11 And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and went their way.
Gen 14:12 And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.
Do you see the difference? Jesus told us specifically to REMEMBER Lot’s wife!
Luk 17:31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.
Luk 17:32 Remember Lot's wife.
Luk 17:33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.
If God sends His prophets to warn us, and we willfully ignore His warnings, can we really expect to escape His judgments? Lot’s wife was pulled out of Sodom by two angels and she still turned back. Can anybody actually condemn God for including her in His wrath when she defied His warning? God specifically condemns people because they do not listen to His prophets!
Jer 29:18 And I will persecute them with the sword, with the famine, and with the pestilence, and will deliver them to be removed to all the kingdoms of the earth, to be a curse, and an astonishment, and an hissing, and a reproach, among all the nations whither I have driven them:
Jer 29:19 Because they have not hearkened to my words, saith the LORD, which I sent unto them by my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them; but ye would not hear, saith the LORD.
Even President George Washington and many other people gave prophetic warnings to the United States, but our defiance of God seems to grow daily.
If we can agree that the United States is racing recklessly towards judgment, perhaps we should attempt to find out the timing of this “surprise nuclear attack”. Fortunately, several of these prophetic warnings of a surprise nuclear attack upon the United States also have some definite clues that we can watch out for.
First, all three visions say that the surprise nuclear attack will be mainly against the East Coast and the West Coast of the United States. The angel in Dumitru Duduman’s vision specifically names California, Las Vegas, Florida, and New York as targets of the attack. Henry Gruver’s vision mentions the major cities on the East and West Coasts of the United States. David Wilkerson specifically mentions New York City. Frankly, if you are living in a large city on the coast, you are ignoring prophetic warnings at your own peril. If you are living in New York City, you are living in the heart of Mystery Babylon … God help you!
Second, Dumitru Duduman mentions missiles coming from Cuba, Central America and Mexico. Missiles coming from our friendly neighbor to the south seemed unthinkable in the 1980’s? Now that Donald Trump is President, it does not appear so “unthinkable” as it once was. Dumitru Duduman mentions an attack from the oceans, and Henry Gruver specifically says that the Russians will attack from submarines off the coast. Recently, Russian submarines have been detected closer to the United States than they have ever been before.
Third, David Wilkerson said that the attack would occur during an economic collapse. We had a minor economic collapse in 2008, but I suspect we will have a much larger economic collapse in the near future. When the next economic collapse occurs, I believe you will have a very short time to escape the cities along the coast and prepare a retreat from the tribulation that is coming upon the whole earth.
I suspect that this surprise nuclear attack will be the catalyst for the beginning of seven years of tribulation and the rise of the antichrist and his beast system to rule the earth. Since I believe the rapture will occur on September 24, 2029 and Jesus will return to the Mount of Olives on June 7, 2030, I estimate that this nuclear war will occur seven year prior, or sometime between the Fall of 2022 and the Spring of 2023. However, this is just an educated guess. It could happen before this time frame, I would pay special attention to the warning signs and take appropriate action as they become more and more obvious.
Heb 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
Heb 10:24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
Heb 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
