If you have an hour between Conference sessions this weekend, this is worthy of your time. If this guy is anywhere close in his reasoning, we are in serious trouble. I have always trusted the righteous Jews because they fully understand the symbology of the Old Testament and the subtle nuances of the words of prophets like Isaiah:



When people will not adhere to good principle (such as the Zion belief in consecration), what they cling tightest to, will begin to fade and slide into obscurity. I have felt this in my own life when I am not centered on a Zion life.

Interesting words - I had to share:

Slippery Treasures--A Prophecy
By Larry Barkdull

When I first read the Book of Mormon as a boy, I encountered Samuel the Lamanite’s prophecy of “slippery treasures.” After discounting the notion that the treasures were greased, I wondered how they had slipped away. Did the treasures simply vanish? Did the Nephites experience widespread thievery? Over the years, knowing the Book of Mormon was written for us in the last days, I have pondered how the slippery-treasures scenario might play out again.

I need not speculate any longer. The event is upon us. The Book of Mormon story is more than account; it is a prophecy!

Mormon had the ability to foresee our day and marry latter-day troubles with Nephite events. One intriguing entry is Samuel the Lamanite’s prophecy of “slippery treasures.”

That Mormon would record Samuel’s words in such detail should signal to us their latter-day import. That Samuel delivered his message only years before the advent of the Savior, listing attendant destruction should add more weight to our latter-day consideration. That the resurrected Jesus would draw attention to Samuel and insist that his missing prophecies be recorded accurately should draw us into Mormon’s account and cause us to dissect and apply the principles.

Let us consider Samuel’s denunciation of the Nephites’ Babylon as that denunciation parallels Babylon today.

Samuel the Lamanite’s Denunciation of the Nephites’ Babylon

A few years before the birth of Christ, Samuel, a Lamanite prophet, entered the land of the Nephites to warn the people, cry repentance and prophesy of simultaneously glorious and catastrophic events. To set the stage, Mormon describes the Nephite world as one of “great wickedness.” Only a few “did observe strictly to keep the commandments of God.” The Nephites’ reaction to the prophet’s preaching ranged from disregard to violence.[i] Immediately, we see our latter-day condition mirroring that of the Nephites.

Frighteningly, Samuel warned that “the sword of justice hangeth over this people…. Yea, heavy destruction awaiteth this people, and it surely cometh unto this people, and nothing can save this people save it be repentance and faith on the Lord Jesus Christ.” The Nephites’ condition had resulted from “the hardness of the hearts of the people.” That hardness of heart was being manifested in a variety of ways:

The misuse of money that the Lord had given them.
Setting their hearts on acquiring riches.
Not hearkening unto the Lord or his prophets.
Neither remembering the Lord nor his blessings nor thanking him for them.
Always thinking about their riches and how to acquire more of them.
Their hearts were not “drawn out unto the Lord.”
“Great pride, unto boasting, and unto great swelling, envyings, strifes, malice, persecutions, and murders, and all manner of iniquities.”
Mocking and rejecting the prophets.[ii]

Following “Blind Guides”

Another sinful condition of the Nephites was their willingness to follow, idolize and uphold people who flattered their egos—“blind guides,”[iii] Samuel called these deceivers. The Nephites were more interested in the philosophies of these smooth-tongued “guides” than the prophets. The Nephites would enrich these people and canonize their words as if they were scripture.

“But behold, if a man shall come among you and shall say: Do this, and there is no iniquity; do that and ye shall not suffer; yea, he will say: Walk after the pride of your own hearts; yea, walk after the pride of your eyes, and do whatsoever your heart desireth--and if a man shall come among you and say this, ye will receive him, and say that he is a prophet. Yea, ye will lift him up, and ye will give unto him of your substance; ye will give unto him of your gold, and of your silver, and ye will clothe him with costly apparel; and because he speaketh flattering words unto you, and he saith that all is well, then ye will not find fault with him.”[iv]

“Blind guides” are those people who receive our support and adoration for flattering us with their mouth, but more often with their life-style. We give them riches for what they do not produce or contribute; we give them riches for being famous. These blind guides flatter us by parading the rewards that come from a lifestyle that glamorizes Babylon, and we applaud them for their having legitimized a life of wealth, self-indulgence, power, recognition, and excess.

Ripe for Destruction

The Lord’s spirit cannot abide in such wickedness. In Samuel’s day, only the presence of a few righteous individuals was holding back the judgments. But the clock was ticking. The gathering of the righteous was taking place. Soon the faithful few would be called out (or cast out). Then the wicked would be ripe for destruction,[v] and only the repentant would be spared.

The word ripe is intriguing. A fruit that is ripe will separate itself and fall from its mother tree. Ripeness is an interesting analogy for separating one’s self and falling away from the Tree of Life. In its insistence for a sinful, independent life from the tree, the ripe and fallen fruit can ultimately do nothing on its own except lie on the ground and rot.


Speaking for the Lord, Samuel pronounced a series of curses:

“I will take away my word from them.”
“I will withdraw my spirit.”
“I will suffer them no longer,” that is, I will not allow them to continue living this way.
“I will turn the hearts of their [enemies] against them.”
“I will cause that they shall be smitten…with the sword and with famine and with pestilence….I will visit them in my fierce anger.”
“Whoso shall hide up treasures in the earth shall find them no more…save he be a righteous man.”[vi]

Slippery Treasures

If the people cared little about the first five curses, the last one was sure to get their attention. This curse was aimed at what they loved most: their treasures. The curse stipulated that a righteous person was exempt; he could “hide up” his treasure unto the Lord—consecrate it—and he and the treasure would remain safe.

But a wicked person or a good person who still trusted in Babylon would not be so fortunate. Because he was in the selfish habit of hiding his treasure unto himself and not unto the Lord, he would soon discover to his horror that his treasure had become “slippery.”[vii]

Consequently, the fortunes of those who were wicked or those good people who still trusted in Babylon would slip away from them; the economy would collapse, and financial ruin would result: “And behold, the time cometh that he curseth your riches, that they become slippery, that ye cannot hold them; and in the days of your poverty ye cannot retain them.”[viii]

Vulnerability to Enemies

Then things would go from bad to worse. In the people’s impoverished situation, they would be vulnerable to attack from their enemies, particularly those enemies who constituted secret combinations. We note here that Samuel’s prophecies were followed by the near destruction of the nation by the Gadianton robbers.[ix] Samuel foretold that following the economic collapse the people would “flee before their enemies”[x] Their lamentations should strike fear in every person who trusts in his riches and adores Babylon:

And in the days of your poverty ye shall cry unto the Lord; and in vain shall ye cry, for your desolation is already come upon you, and your destruction is made sure; and then shall ye weep and howl in that day, saith the Lord of Hosts. And then shall ye lament, and say:

O that I had repented, and had not killed the prophets, and stoned them, and cast them out. Yea, in that day ye shall say: O that we had remembered the Lord our God in the day that he gave us our riches, and then they would not have become slippery that we should lose them; for behold, our riches are gone from us.

Behold, we lay a tool here and on the morrow it is gone; and behold, our swords are taken from us in the day we have sought them for battle.

Yea, we have hid up our treasures and they have slipped away from us, because of the curse of the land.

O that we had repented in the day that the word of the Lord came unto us; for behold the land is cursed, and all things are become slippery, and we cannot hold them.

Behold, we are surrounded by demons, yea, we are encircled about by the angels of him who hath sought to destroy our souls. Behold, our iniquities are great. O Lord, canst thou not turn away thine anger from us? And this shall be your language in those days.

But behold, your days of probation are past; ye have procrastinated the day of your salvation until it is everlastingly too late, and your destruction is made sure; yea, for ye have sought all the days of your lives for that which ye could not obtain; and ye have sought for happiness in doing iniquity, which thing is contrary to the nature of that righteousness which is in our great and Eternal Head.

O ye people of the land, that ye would hear my words! And I pray that the anger of the Lord be turned away from you, and that ye would repent and be saved.[xi]

First economic collapse then vulnerability to attacks from our enemies!

Failure to Repent

After Samuel’s martyrdom, his prophecies began to be fulfilled. But the Nephites did not repent. Mormon reported that “there was but little alteration in the affairs of the people, save it were the people began to be more hardened in iniquity.” Neither economic cataclysms and vicious attacks from terrorists within their borders prodded them from their insanity.

Even when “great signs [were] given unto the people, and wonders; and the words of the prophets began to be fulfilled,” the Nephites hardened their hearts.”[xii] They simply would not believe the signs or respond to the Lord’s warning to repent.

Mormon identified four reasons why the people did not repent:

1) Prophecies are nothing more than good guesses: “Some things they [the prophets] may have guessed right, among so many; but behold, we know that all these great and marvelous works cannot come to pass, of which has been spoken.”

2) Prophecies do not make sense: “And they began to reason and to contend among themselves, saying: That it is not reasonable that such a being as a Christ shall come.

3) Prophecies are false traditions: “But behold, we know that this is a wicked tradition, which has been handed down unto us by our fathers, to cause us that we should believe in some great and marvelous thing which should come to pass… therefore they can keep us in ignorance.”

4) Prophets deceive us to keep us bound to them: “And they [the prophets] will, by the cunning and the mysterious arts of the evil one, work some great mystery which we cannot understand, which will keep us down to be servants to their words, and also servants unto them, for we depend upon them to teach us the word; and thus will they keep us in ignorance if we will yield ourselves unto them, all the days of our lives.”

Satan’s Great Hold on the People’s Hearts

Mormon informed us that the Nephites “began to depend upon their own strength and upon their own wisdom.” They “imagine[d] up in their hearts” “many more things” “which were foolish and vain.”

Mormon said that the people “were much disturbed, for Satan did stir them up to do iniquity continually; yea, he did go about spreading rumors and contentions upon all the face of the land, that he might harden the hearts of the people against that which was good and against that which should come. And notwithstanding the signs and the wonders which were wrought among the people of the Lord, and the many miracles which they did, Satan did get great hold upon the hearts of the people upon all the face of the land.”[xiii]

Latter-day Application

It is difficult to read this account and not see the condition of Babylon today.Clearly, we are mere years away from the Savior’s advent. The prophets are widely mocked, ignored, and often soundly rejected. Only a few Zion people practice righteousness, and perhaps for their sake the Lord is holding back the prophesied destruction.

The condition of Babylon’s citizens is defined by their hardness of heart.

They love their money and selfishly misuse it.
They always think about their riches and how to acquire more.
They will not hearken unto the Lord or his words.
They will not remember or thank the Lord for their blessings.
Their hearts are not “drawn out unto the Lord.”
Their lives are marked with “great pride,” boastings, envyings, strifes, malice, persecutions, and murders, and all manner of iniquities.”
They follow “blind guides,” who use flattering words to stroke their egos and legitimize a lifestyle that glamorizes wealth, self-indulgence, popularity, power and excess.

Now the curses of the Lord are becoming apparent and the prophecy of the slippery treasures is being fulfilled. Personal treasures are becoming unstable; economies are lying in ruins. In this condition, the people of Babylon are vulnerable to their enemies, especially those of secret combinations. Despite devastating events, they will not repent and return to the Lord. Rather, they find all sorts of reasons not to repent, and they grow in wickedness. Samuel might as well have been warning and prophesying to us today!

Go ye out from Babylon

Knowing the condition and future of Babylon, why do we try so hard to embrace her? The Lord has instructed us implicitly:

Go ye out from Babylon. Be ye clean that bear the vessels of the Lord…. Yea, verily I say unto you again, the time has come when the voice of the Lord is unto you: Go ye out of Babylon; gather ye out from among the nations, from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other…. Go ye out from among the nations, even from Babylon, from the midst of wickedness, which is spiritual Babylon.[xiv]

As we know, Babylon is simultaneously a location, the sum of false philosophies and doctrines, and a vile condition of the heart. While our present circumstances might not involve moving away from physical Babylon, we nevertheless must flee from spiritual Babylon. In unmistakable language, the Lord has commanded us to “forsake the world,”[xv] and “lay aside the things of this world, and seek for the things of a better.”[xvi] He charges us to escape for our own safety:

For after today cometh the burning--this is speaking after the manner of the Lord--for verily I say, tomorrow all the proud and they that do wickedly shall be as stubble; and I will burn them up, for I am the Lord of Hosts; and I will not spare any that remain in Babylon.[xvii]

If we choose to remain in spiritual Babylon, we do so at our own risk. Most certainly, we will be caught up in the destructions: “…that great whore, who hath perverted the right ways of the Lord, yea, that great and abominable church, shall tumble to the dust and great shall be the fall of it.”[xviii]

Come to Zion

The Lord’s command to leave Babylon is also an invitation to come to Zion with the Lord’s offer to help us arrive safely. Still, there is nothing easy about leaving Babylon and converting to a Zionlike way of life founded on celestial doctrines. Occasionally, we must be “stirred up” so that we might see the truth about Babylon and decide once and for all to leave. Blaine Yorgason writes:

Whether we think we need to give up [the things of Babylon] or not, it seems that the Lord is frequently willing to help us in the giving up of worldly things. He might do this by allowing financial reversals to occur, bringing loss of homes, cars, boats, and incomes; personal or corporate bankruptcy; and so forth. We might also experience a severe loss of health or death of a loved one, which can do the same thing by making worldly things unattractive or meaningless….

This is called being stirred up unto repentance. In this case, however, I will substitute the word humility, which always strikes at the heart of pride, vanity, and worldliness! ‘Behold, the world is ripening in iniquity; and it must needs be that the children of men are stirred up unto humility, both the Gentiles and also the house of Israel’ (D&C 18:6); and, ‘The kingdom of the devil must shake, and they which belong to it must needs be stirred up unto repentance, or the devil will grasp them with his everlasting chains, and they…perish’ (2 Nephi 28:19). When we experience this divine assistance in leaving behind the things of the world—and to some degree we will all experience it—then above all else we ought to be filled with joy and rejoicing in the Lord’s goodness and mercy (D&C 52:43).”[xix]

Zion is and always has been the safety and security of the Saints. However, having one foot in Babylon and the other in Zion will never work. We simply cannot choose both ways, because Zion and Babylon are mutually exclusive—exact opposites.

Samuel warned the Nephites that they had to choose, and we need only read the account to see the consequences of those who chose Babylon over Zion. The Book of Mormon testifies that the few who chose a Zion way of life were kept safe from the calamities, and shortly thereafter, the Lord came and established Zion among them. And, depending on our choice, so it shall be with us.


Jesus is Coming Soon!

By: Vincent Aquilino
Posted: 9/30/97
Received: A few years ago.

I received this dream a few years ago. I cannot tell you with certainty that it was from the Lord. But I can
tell you that I still remember it as vividly as the night I received it. I have not shared it to this point, but I
now feel that, with worldwide circumstances the way they are, it is appropriate. It is your job to judge this
against scripture (be Berean) and to hold on to what is good and to reject what is false.

A "Prophetic Dream"
"Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets." (Amos 3:7)
I was downstairs trying to tune in the radio. My father-in-law came down the stairs and asked me what I was
doing. I told him that I was trying to find some information about something that had happened. I shook my
head and said I didn't understand why I couldn't fnd out anything about what had happened. Whatever it was,
it must have happened far enough in the past that it was no longer news.
Then I looked out the dining room window. It was snowing. Why was it snowing, I asked? It's summer. It's
not supposed to be snowing. I then went over to the thermostat and noted that the heat was on and the
furnace was running. Again I shook my head and said, it's not supposed to be snowing; what's going on?
What has happened?
Then I spoke with my wife and decided to go out and get some groceries. A friend, whom I did not recognize,
came with me. We went outside, but instead of getting into the car, we walked pulling a wagon behind us. We
got to the first corner, where there was a menacing crowd. We ran back into the house to get a rifle. We
then were able to go down the street.
We came to the first store. There was nothing on the shelves. We continued down the street to the next
store. There was nothing on the shelves. Then we came to the third store. There were just a very few items
on the shelves. Again I wondered, what has happened? I didn't understand. The grocer said: "Well what do
you expect, considering what has happened?" "What has happened, I asked?" There was no reply.
We returned home and decided to go down to the stadium and hear someone speak, in the hopes we would
find out what had happened. We went and sat up in the bleachers and listened to the speaker, but we didn't
find out what had happened.
We then went home. I sat in the dining room, gazing at the snow, shaking my head and muttering that it was
not supposed to be snowing.
Finally I called out to the Lord in anguish. Lord, what has happened? The Lord answered me:
The Russians had launched a pre-emptive strike against the Missile silos in the MidWest [it was apparently a
limited exchange]. They had taken out the missile silos. But our submarines counter-attacked. I was even
told the death counts: 6.8 million Americans and 4.6 Million Russians dead.
I flashed to my wife. She had developed a rash or something of the sort. She was worried about radiation. But
then an angel appeared and said not to worry, that "??????" (it was a technical name that I did not
understand) would take care of it. I told the Angel I did not understand the term. The angel said that
"Retin-A" would take care of the problem and not to worry.
Then I was in the dining room again, looking at the snow coming down in summer, shaking my head and
saying that was not supposed to be happening.
This was the end of the dream.
Considering the nearness of the Ezekiel 38 confrontation and the likelihood of some sort of exchange
between Russia and the U.S. I thought it appropriate to share this at this time. If the dream has no prophetic
significance, then all that would have happened is that you did some extra praying and sought the Lord's
guidance on how to prepare spiritually, mentally and physically. If it is correct, then the Lord has warned us
in accordance with Amos 3:7.
In any case, DO NOT FEAR, but trust Jesus.
Note: 1) The dream had my father-in-law in it, but not my mother-in-law. She went to be with the Lord last
Note: 2) I was surprised a few months ago to come home and find tubes of "Retin-A" sitting on my wife's
dressing table that her Doctor recommended she try for a skin condition.

Amazing Vision of the Throne Room

Vision -1996
16 Jan 2003
When my son was nine years old, (he is now sixteen), he responded to an altar call for repentance at church.
He leaned over to me and asked permission to go up to the altar, because he really felt that he should.
Well, I said yes, and off he went to the altar by himself. I followed his blonde little head up to the front and
realized he was the first person to respond to the pastor's call. The pastor laid hands on him and prayed, and
my son just collapsed. I went up to the front of the church to keep an eye on him, and saw him laying on the
floor on his back with a big smile on his face and his eyes closed. He was out! About twenty minutes later he
got up. After church was over we walked out and got into our car. I cranked up the engine and I heard him
say, something like "How about them angels!" I yelled "What did you say?", and he began to tell us of what
he saw while out in the spirit.

He said he saw a square shaped rotating gold frame, like a picture frame coming towards him. In the middle,
where the picture was, the gold was very bright. It got closer and bigger until the frame swallowed him like a
portal of some kind.

He found himself suddenly standing in a different place than our church. He was in a room that was larger
than any room on Earth. The ceiling was so high that there was a cloud layer that blocked the view of the very
top. The back of the room had balcony after balcony filled with rows of chairs that had blood red padding on
them. These balconies were in levels all the way up to the clouds. My son theorized later that they were for
the blood washed saints because only Humans were sitting in them. Angels were in the balconies too, but they
were standing like ushers at the edges of the balconies. The width of the building was miles wide. With
incredible zoom vision he could see the far side wall and the cloud layer as almost on the edge of the horizon.
He could even see wall moldings that were halfway up to the cloud layer, thousands of feet high. The floor was
made of a shiny golden material that was transparent. He said you could see into the Gold floor but not see
the bottom. Kind of like deep water. One can see into deep water but not to the bottom. It was soft to stand on
and left an outline of his foot prints which would soon disappear.

He noticed that his vision was greatly increased, and that he could zoom in on things like a telescope. He also
could see 360 degrees around himself at the same time as looking straight ahead. He was noticing that he was
dressed in a dress shirt and pants even though his body on earth was wearing shorts and a t-shirt. He could
see himself looking at his clothes from a third person view at the same time he was looking in the first
person. There were millions of beings in the room. On the floor there were more angels than Humans. They
started to dance with music and he danced too. He could not help himself. While my son was dancing he
noticed an Angel that was not facing the front. This angel, who was faced away from him, turned around and
smiled at him. He had a glistening substance in his wings and his eyes were brilliant blue. In fact they looked
like a welder's arc with less white light and more blue. He had the feeling the angel could shoot lightening
bolts from his eyes had he wanted to. The angel had blonde hair. There were hundreds of thousands of angels
around my son with a smaller number of Humans mixed in. The angels did have wings.

My son turned to look toward the front of the room, he could see that it was miles from front to back. The
angels near the front were standing in ranks like the military. The angels in the back were also in ranks. The
ones in the middle were less organized and the humans seemed to be at random. Then he saw the Thrones.
They were pure gold like most everything in the room. Here is the amazing part. They were HUGE! A large
throne was in the center of two smaller thrones. He said there was something that looked like a crown
attached to the top of the back of the larger throne. The two small thrones were at least as large as the NYC
twin Towers! They were skyscraper tall! The larger throne in the middle was at least ten times taller and
larger than those two. It was like a tall mountain in size.

Out of the Great Throne shined a Light so bright it hurt his eyes and he had to glance away. He could see two
lesser lights within the greater light coming out of the smaller thrones. They were blended yet distinct. He felt
that the large light was the "Source" of the two lesser lights. After a moment from looking at the thrones he
was back in his body laying on the floor in Church. For days after this vision he seemed to be constantly
meditating about what he saw. He even got along with his siblings! Some of these details he has just explained
to me, since he couldn't verbalize every thing he saw when he was nine. One thing my son said that was
interesting, was that he could actually see tiny figures moving within the bright gold that was framed by the
golden frame. The brightness was the light of the Thrones that he had not yet noticed and the figures were
the angels. Also, most of the surroundings in the Throne Room was golden. Somehow this frame was like a
doorway to that place. I asked him the other day, did it seem real or like a dream? He hit his chest hard and
said it was a real as that. Solid. Like he was standing there physically with touch, taste, smell, etc... I asked
him if he smelled anything remembering a post by Leuretha about the smell of God, and he said he couldn't
remember because of the awe of taking everything in at once. I hope you are as blessed as we were to hear
his testimony. I can see how we can share in Christ's Throne. It's Huge!

God bless y'all.

I Will Let Go Of America

by Linda Courtney


"Soon, soon, and very soon, as man calculates time, will time on earth be over for the rule of man. I the Lord
God Almighty say unto you this day to fasten your safety belts in Me, and hang on for the ride of your lives.
All that remains hidden in the darkness will soon be fully exposed. This is the time to repent of personal sins,
and to gird your loins like a man or woman of God. I am soon to bring a shaking to this world such as it has
never known, and only those who remain safe in Jesus Christ shall be able to hang on. Do not allow the things
of this present evil age to take a hold on you. I the Lord your God am demanding you do a quick work to
finish the respective ministries that I have given you. The night soon comes when the shades will be pulled,
and you will in darkness with the only light you see coming from Me, the Holy One of Israel.
Look up and remember I hold the world and all that is in it in the palm of My Hands. Soon I shall let go of
much, that which is destined for the pit of destruction. I am Holy and I will not hold onto the things or the
people who pollute My holiness. I shall let go of all that offends me to be purged in the fires of affliction. The
people will either repent or go to hell. I am not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to
repentance. My patience is wearing thin, and My purpose shall stand.
I held back the fury of Satan and his evil hordes a few years ago when the evil governments of the world
planned for the collapse. I held back the winds of change for a few more months, but time is running out.
Your nation is corrupt to the core, and even the *core is rotten through and through. Hearken to me saith the
Lord God of Israel, and listen to the governments of the world foment war. Soon it shall come to pass, and
even your President who professes to be a true Christian will have to answer to Me as he turns more and more
in favor of the Palestinians. He will set in motion the wheels that will call for a Palestinian State. When this
happens, know that I will let go of America. You cannot give away the land of GOD to corrupt and pagan
peoples without severe consequences.
I am calling on you today, and I say to all who read these words written by My Handmaiden . . .REPENT! Time
is short, and growing ever shorter. I stand at the portals of Heaven waiting to receive My true Blood Washed
Children. Only those washed, and washed daily in the Blood of the Lamb, Yeshua, Jesus The Christ will be
received into My great and eternal kingdom. thus saith the God of heaven." Received the 12th day of April
Please remember when God gives a Word the final fulfillment may not come to pass until months or many
years later, BUT it will eventually happen. The majority of prophecies in the Word of God were many years in
coming to pass after they were given to the servants of the Lord. We do NOT know the exact time, but we are
told to be ready at all times.

Tommy Hicks

July 1954

The following is a stunning vision given to American preacher Tommy Hicks (who was a central figure in the
powerful 1954 Ar- gentina Revival).

My message begins July 25, about 2:30 in the morning at Winnipeg, Canada. I had hardly fallen asleep when
the vision and the reve- lation that God gave me came before me. The vision came three times, exactly in
detail, the morning of July 25, 1961. I was so stirred and so moved by the revelation that this has changed my
complete outlook upon the body of Christ, and upon the end-time ministries.

As the vision appeared to me after I was asleep, I suddenly found myself in a great high distance. Where I
was, I do not know. But I was looking down upon the earth. Suddenly the whole earth came into my view.
Every nation, every kindred, every tongue came before my sight from the east and the west, the north and
the south. I recognized every country and many cities that I had been in, and I was almost in fear and
trembing as I beheld the great sight before me: and at that moment when the world came into view, it began
to lightning and thunder. As the lightning flashed over the face of the earth, my eyes went downward and I
was facing the north. Suddenly I beheld what looked like a great giant, and as I stared and looked at it, I was
almost bewildered by the sight. It was so gigantic and so great. His feet seemed to reach to the north pole and
his head to the south. Its arms were stretched from sea to sea. I could not even begin to understand whether
this be a mountain or this be a giant, but as I watched, I suddenly beheld a great giant. I could see his head
was struggling for life. He wanted to live, but his body was covered with debris from head to foot, and at times
this great giant would move his body and act as though it would even raise up at times. And when it did,
thousands of little creatures seemed to run away. Hideous creatures would run away from this giant, and
when he would become calm, they would come back. All of a sudden this great giant lifted his hand towards
heaven, and then it lifted its other hand, and when it did these crea- tures by the thousands seemed to flee
away from this giant and go into the darkness of the night. Slowly this great giant began to rise and as he did,
his head and hands went into the clouds. As he rose to his feet he seemed to have cleansed himself from the
debris and filth that was upon him, and he began to raise his hands into the heavens as though praising the
Lord, and as he raised his hands, they went even un- to the clouds. Suddenly, every cloud became silver, the
most beautiful silver I have ever known. As I watched this phenomenon it was so great I could not even
begin to understand what it all meant. I was so stirred as I watched it, and I cried unto the Lord and I said,
"Oh Lord, what is the meaning of this." and I felt as if I was actually in the Spirit and I could feel the
presence of the Lord even as I was asleep. And from those clouds suddenly there came great drops of liquid
light raining down upon this mighty giant, and slowly, slowly, this giant began to melt, began to sink itself in
the very earth itself, and as he melted, his whole form seemed to have melted upon the face of the earth, and
this great rain began to come down. Liquid drops of light began to flood the very earth itself and as I watched
this giant that seemed to melt, suddenly it be- came millions of people over the face of the earth. As I beheld
the sight before me, people stood up all over the world! They were lifting their hands and they were praising
the Lord. At that very moment there came a great thunder that seemed to roar from the heavens. I turned
my eyes toward the heavens and suddenly I saw a figure in white, in glistening white - the most glorious
thing that I have ever seen in my entire life. I did not see the face, but somehow I knew it was the Lord
Jesus Christ, and he stretched forth his hand, and as he did, he would stretch it forth to one, and to another,
and to another. And as he stretched forth his hand upon the nations and the people of the world - men and
women - as he pointed toward them, this liquid light seemed to flow from his hands into them, and a mighty
an- ointing of God came upon them, and those people began to go forth in the name of the Lord. I do not
know how long I watched it. It seemed it went into days and weeks and months. And I beheld this Christ as
he continued to stretch forth his hand; but there was a tragedy. There were many people as he stretched
forth his hand that refused the anointing of God and the call of God. I saw men and women that I knew. Peo-
ple that I felt would certainly receive the call of God. But as he stretched forth his hand toward this one and
toward that one, they simply bowed their head and began to back away. And each of those that seemed to bow
down and back away, seemed to go into darkness. Blackness seemed to swallow them everywhere. I was
bewildered as I watched it, but these people that he had anointed, hundreds of thousands of people all over
the world, in Africa, England, Russia, China, America, all over the world, the anointing of God was upon
these people as they went forward in the name of the Lord. I saw these men and women as they went forth.
They were ditch diggers, they were washerwomen, they were rich men, they were poor men. I saw people who
were bound with paralysis and sickness and blindness and deafness. As the Lord stretched forth to give them
this anointing, they became well, they became healed, and they went forth! And this is the miracle of it - this
is the glorious miracle of it - those people would stretch forth their hands exactly as the Lord did, and it
seemed as if there was this same liquid fire in their hands. As they stretched forth their hands they said,
"Ac- cording to my word, be thou made whole." As these people continued in this mighty end-time ministry,
I did not fully realize what it was, and I looked to the Lord and said, "What is the meaning of this?" And he
said, "This is that which I will do in the last days. I will restore all that the cankerworm, the palmerworm,
the caterpiller - I will restore all that they have destroyed. This, my people, in the end times will go forth. As
a mighty army shall they sweep over the face of the earth." As I was at this great height, I could behold the
whole world. I watched these people as they were going to and fro over the face of the earth. Suddenly there
was a man in Africa and in a moment he was transported by the Spirit of God, and perhaps he was in Russia,
or China or America or some other place, and vice versa. All over the world these people went, and they
came through fire, and through pestilence, and through famine. Neither fire nor per- secution, nothing
seemed to stop them. Angry mobs came to them with swords and with guns. And like Je- sus, they passed
through the multitudes and they could not find them, but they went forth in the name of the Lord, and
everywhere they stretched forth their hands, the sick were healed, the blind eyes were opened. There was not
a long prayer, and after I had reviewed the vision many times in my mind, and I thought about it many
times, I realised that I never saw a church, and I never saw or heard a denomination, but these people were
going in the name of the Lord of Hosts. Hallelujah! As they marched forth in everything they did as the
ministry of Christ in the end times, these people were ministering to the multitudes over the face of the
earth. Tens of thousands, even millions seemed to come to the Lord Jesus Christ as these people stood forth
and gave the message of the kingdom, of the coming kingdom, in this last hour. It was so glorious, but it
seems as though there were those that rebelled, and they would become an- gry and they tried to attack
those workers that were giving the message. God is going to give the world a demonstration in this last hour
as the world has never known. These men and women are of all walks of life, degrees will mean nothing. I
saw these workers as they were going over the face of the earth. When one would stum- ble and fall, another
would come and pick him up. There were no "big I" and "little you," but every mountain was brought low
and every valley was exalted, and they seemed to have one thing in common - there was a divine love, a
divine love that seemed to flow forth from these people as they worked together, and as they lived together.
It was the most glorious sight that I have ever known. Jesus Christ was the theme of their life. They
continued and it seemed the days went by as I stood and beheld this sight. I could only cry, and sometimes I
laughed. It was so wonderful as these people went throughout the face of the whole earth, bringing forth in
this last end time. As I watched from the very heaven itself, there were times when great deluges of this
liquid light seemed to fall upon great con- gregations, and that congregation would lift up their hands and
seemingly praise God for hours and even days as the Spirit of God came upon them. God said, "I will pour my
Spirit upon all flesh," and that is exactly this thing. And to every man and every woman that received this
power, and the anointing of God, the miracles of God, there was no ending to it. We have talked about
miracles. We have talked about signs and wonders, but I could not help but weep as I read again this morn-
ing, at 4 o'clock this morning the letter from our native work- ers. This is only the evidence of the beginning
for one man, a "do-nothing, an unheard-of," who would go and stretch forth his hand and say, "In the name
of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command life to flow into your body." I dropped to my knees and began to pray
again, and I said, "Lord, I know that this time is coming soon!" And then again, as these people were going
about the face of the earth, a great persecution seemed to come from every angle. Suddenly there was
another great clap of thunder, that seemed to resound around the world, and I heard again the voice, the
voice that seemed to speak, "Now this is my people. This is my beloved bride." And when the voice spoke, I
looked upon the earth and I could see the lakes and the mountains. The graves were opened and people from
all over the world, the saints of all ages, seemed to be rising. And as they rose from the grave, suddenly all
these people came from every direction. From the east and the west, from the north and the south, and they
seemed to be forming again this gigantic body. As the dead in Christ seemed to be rising first, I could hardly
comprehend it. It was so marvellous. It was so far beyond anything I could ever dream or think of. But as
this body suddenly began to form, and take shape again, it took shape again in the form of this mighty giant,
but this time it was different. It was arrayed in the most beautiful gor- geous white. Its garments were
without spot or wrinkle as its body began to form, and the people of all ages seemed to be gath- ered into this
body, and slowly, slowly, as it began to form up into the very heavens, suddenly from the heavens above, the
Lord Jesus came, and became the head, and I heard another clap of thunder that said, "This is my beloved
bride for whom I have waited. She will come forth even tried by fire. This is she that I have loved from the
beginning of time." As I watched, my eyes suddenly turned to the far north, and I saw seemingly destruction:
men and women in anguish and crying out, and buildings in destruction. Then I heard again, the fourth voice
that said, "Now is My wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth." From the ends of the whole world,
the wrath of God seemed to be poured out and it seemed that there were great vials of God's wrath being
poured out upon the face of the earth. I can remember it as though it happened a moment ago. I shook and
trembled as I beheld the awful sight of seeing the cities, and whole nations going down into destruction. I
could hear the weeping and wailing. I could hear people cry- ing. They seemed to cry as they went into caves,
but the caves in the mountains opened up. They leaped into water, but the water would not drown them.
There was nothing that could destroy them. They were wanting to take their lives, but they could not. Then
again I turned my eyes to this glorious sight, this body arrayed in beautiful white, shining garments. Slowly,
slowly, it began to lift from the earth, and as it did, I awoke. What a sight I had beheld! I had seen the
end-time ministries - the last hour. Again on July 27, at 2:30 in the morning, the same revela- tion, the same
vision came again exactly as it did before. My life has been changed as I realised that we are living in that
end time, for all over the world God is anointing men and women with this ministry. It will not be doctrine. It
will not be a churchianity. It is going to be Jesus Christ. They will give forth the word of the Lord, and are
going to say, "I heard it so many times in the vision and according to my word it shall be done."
The Vision of the Coming of the Lord

by Jonah ben Noah

January 1996

On the First day of January of 1996 at approximately 12:15 a.m as I was gathered with my wife, and two of
my sons, Adam Elijah and Joshua Ben, and with the Doll family, Tim and Sandy and their children, Krystall,
Stephen, and the baby, Michael, we had been gather together since 7:00 p.m. to fellowhship, and share, and
testify. The Lord God had allowed me to share some Words of Knowledge and prophecy, others had testified
and spoken of the things of God, and we had been listening to songs of praise and gospel music to celebrate
the coming of a new year of what we hoped would be opportunities to served our Lord.
As it drew nearer to the beginning of the new year, I said I wanted to be in prayer as the new year began. We
then put forward request for prayer, and then began to pray. I prayed fervently for those things that had
been requested, and for those things the spirit brought to my attention. After praying 30-40 minutes with the
understanding, I, and the other began to pray with the spirit, and felt His presence strongly. I was praying
with my eyes closed, and suddenly saw a vision of two things. The Lord spoke to me and told me as I saw the
first part, not to tell them this that I saw, so it is sealed up as He commanded.
The Second Part which the Lord said I could show, I now give to whosoever will see and perceive, and hear,
and understand. As I was watching after the first part, which was sealed, I saw a blackness, as of space, or
the heavens at night . Suddenly so fast it was as though out of nowhere, it was as though there was a great
opening in the darkness of the heavens , and there was a brightness of shining coming through that was a
brighness much purer than white; so bright was it, yet it did not blind me. Suddenly in the midst of this
brightness was a white shape followed by other shapes tha seemed distant, but then, faster than instantly, it
was seen as a large white horse with a rider whose facial area shone with a brightness, and who moved so
swiftly with an uncountable number of white horses right behind Him, so as to be wherever He was. The
speed and swiftness was almost unbelievable, they were distant, then seen plainly, then He, and they
following past by me, all before I could speak or blink an eye, as though it all happened in the same instant. I
remember that when I first saw him, the instant thought was that I was seeing the coming of the Lord, and
began to laugh for joy as they passed me, so fast, it was hard to believe or comprehend. Then I saw as
suddenly the Earth at His coming: there was suddenly, and so swiftly, such great destruction, the Earth was
dark without light of the sun or the moon, and the land glowing with fires of melting heat in a darkened
Earth of such swift and fiery destruction that my joy and laughter had died in the great fear and horror that
came on me as I beheld the fiery destruction so swiftly wrought on the Eart, and those who dwelt ther. I
began to weep and cry out, "O God, O God (help us in Jesus's name.) as I next saw a horizon and land of
flaming fir, and saw the outline what appeared as bodies with the outline of their skeletons showing through,
and their mouths opened in what appeared to be torment and agony, and I heard as it were a voice say, "The
elements melt with a heat so fervent."
I saw all this happening so fast, that I was shocked as I saw how horrible and terrible Wrath of God would be.
A great part of the great fear and horror I felt was because of the speed of it's happening. It was so fast you
couldn't believe the speed of it's happening by hearing or reading; you have to see it. I couldn't bear to watch
anymore and opened my eyes crying and crying out to God to help us to understand, and to have mercy upon
us, even as I am weeping as I write this . I was in shock and felt such great fear for all who would have to see
this. Those with me in the room looked on me wondering what was wrong. I walked about in much anxiety for
what I had seen, and told them, "I saw the coming of the Lord." Sandy said, "Praise the Lord." Then I said,
"No, you (don't see or understand), it was horrible, it was horrible to see!" I then sat down and told them, my
legs shaking, and my bowels quaking and in an uproar, of the fear and horror of what I had seen. I wept
bitterly, crying out to God, for what I had seen. Well is it written that the day of the Lord is not a day of
delight, or to delight in, but a day of destruction!
I walked to Tim, hugged him and said, "Pray for me, Brother." and walked into the kitchen and said, "How
can I wrie this? None can understand or believe it unless they see it. It was horrible to behold. The swiftest
destruction. They had no chance or instant to speak, or repent; only to be destroyed with the swiftness of his
coming! He came to make war, but they had no chance even to fight or lift a weapon. All their training and
preparation had been for nothing. It is the most fearsome, and terrible thing I ever beheld."
I said, "Now I know what it means when it says, It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the LIVING
GOD!" I told them, as I tell you who read or hear, with great weeping and crying out to God for fear of those
things I saw were to come on the Earth. I know now what that fear was that moved Noah to prepare the Ark
of safety, and what Peter meant about the elements melthing with a fervant heat, and why we, in knowing
these things should live godly and holy lives in that hope of a new Heaven and Earth.
I asked Tim, "How can I write this? They won't understand. It's just words!", but for the sake of every living
soul, and in the belief that God gave it to me to give to all, and in the hope that he will open their hearts, and
their minds to see and understand, I must try. Let every soul that reads or hears this, know this; you may
think you know or understand what is written about the swiftness, and terribleness of this, but until you see
it, you can only imagine it, and I testify to you, your imagination is not good enough, or fast enough, or even
able to comprehend the fullness of God's Wrath. It written, "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it
entered into the heart of those things God has prepared for them who love him." I say to you the same is
true of those things God has prepared for those that hate him and sin against him.
Let this warning be enough, if you who read or hear this want to escape such wrath, then you better pray, as
He said, that you will be counted worthy to escape those things, and be counted worthy to stand before Him,
the Lord and Saviour of all who believe unto righteousness. He is going to destroy the wicked, the hypocrite,
the half-way doers, the sinners, and all workers and makers of abominations, from the Earth. It is not a
pleasent religious game of churchianity, and religiosity! It is a life and death battle to save your soul. You
can, each one of you, choosed to be saved, or unsaved, just or unjust, righteous, or unrighteous, and be that
way still when he comes in the brighness and swiftness of His coming, as I saw! I tell you truly, you can't
believe how fast he came and smote the Earths wicked and unrighteous unsaved with the wrath of God. If you
are not saved, I adjure you in the name of Jesus to confess your sins and Repent. Accept Jesus Christ now as
your Saviour and the atoning sacrifice for your sins. He took your punishment for you if you will accept it
and believe, forsaking the way of sin. Be sanctified by the blood of Jesus and the washing of the water of the
Word, receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost and Fire and walk in obedience to his Word and Spirit. Be and live
holy and righteous; for I tell you all when He comes, you will not be able to say or do even one thing, so swift
is He, and the Destruction He brings.
It is my prayer in Jesus's name, that this testimony of the vision of the coming of the Lord, will cause some
if not all who read or hear to finally realize what the Wrath of God really is and how horrible it will be. My
son Adam came to me after this and the Spirit showed me he had heard something, so I asked, "What did
you hear You heard something, didn't you?" He told me, "I heard a voice saying, 'The Speaker has been
shot.'" So we all gathered and prayed for God to protect Speaker Newt Gingrich, and to save him from harm.
I adjure all who hear or read this to do pray likewise and to pray for Godly leaders who fear the Lord, Amen.
This fear I felt and still feel was not just for myself, but for all those who would suffer such swift destruction
as I saw. This would be because of their failure to turn, or the church;s failure to live the life, and to reach
them with what was written by God. There was no mercy in what I saw, only sudden, and swift destruction!
This the true testimony of I saw shown to me by God in the vision of the Lord's coming and I so say in my
own hand and voice.

The Rapture is True and Time is Almost Now

John MacHaffie

May 29, 2002

I went down on my knees on Wednesday Evening May 29, 2002, asking God for some revelation, a sign or
whatever to help me about this Rapture belief - Is is true or what? After my tearful prayers and asking Him
for a sign, I fell into a blissful sleep. My dream - maybe vision - I dunno as I am not worthy of a vision, was
spectacular. I vividly saw and felt myself raised vertically right out of my body flying upright at about a 80
degree angle to the earth. As I went up I looked around and saw the most beautiful 'bright' blue sky and
flown above the most beautiful sandy beaches, aqua blue waters with christine clear surf. Look like the
Exumas in the Bahamas. I was quite excited to say the least. I was amazed at how warm and welcoming I felt.

I then was headed up to some grey ceiling clouds which as I got closer --- I felt a strong feeling. Not a voice,
but just definitely a message (like telepathy) --- "the Rapture Is True and time is almost Now". Got to within
several feet of the clouds and then I woke up!

My dream or vision was quite vivid and immediately tried to recall the events as I saw them.

I immediately wanted to post this on the internet to share but had my doubts. Dreams and visions are for not
for us 'logic lead' engineers and tough 'John Wayne type' guys. Prove it - no I can't. Exposing myself to
ridicule is not my ideal of fun but I felt compelled to share this Real Happening.

I am sending this to you Jim Bramlett and Mark as others will be able to appreciate this message. Especially
to those like myself who are wee bit depressed with all these so called rapture dates that have passed.

Be advised to all - - - that it is our wonderful precious Jehova's God Call per His timing not ours. I for sure am
just a pebble of the sand in this universe. My existence and faith is a Blessed Gift which I thank Jehova God
every day.

We are to know the season but not the exact time of His Call. Our need with current events especially now is
to be continuously on a Rapture Watch.

We are just along for the ride, I pray.

And what a ride it will be - I believe I saw a preview and it was awesome.

Jehova God & Jesus Christ Bless,

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 I 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 are not
setting 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

Ellie's Dream, 13 April 1998

It started that I was in some kind of a hospital. I was working or doing something but I wasn't in a uniform.
One of the nurses came out of the scrub room with a newborn baby. He was all wrapped in blankets and I
said, "Oh, he's beautiful! Oh, may I hold the baby?"
The doctor was there, still in his blue scrubs, and said "No, you can't hold him, you have to scrub up first.
He's a newborn, he's just a couple of hours old." He says, "Come on, I'll show you where to scrub." So he
started scrubbing at the sink right next to the recovery room, which is next to the O.R. and I'm scrubbing
too, right next to him.
When he came in, he put the baby on top of a gurney that was there. The gurney wasn't prepped or anything,
it was just bare metal. The baby was all bundled up in a blanket, which is folded in a certain way in the
hospital and doesn't come loose. And the little baby was right there. And I'm scrubbing and then the doctor's
beeper goes off. He says, "Uh Oh, I'll be right back. Let me go see what's wrong." Then he left. I'm washing
my hands and I'd just turned off the water when I hear this "thump".
The baby started crying and I looked and the baby was on the floor. Now, this is a brand new baby, and they
don't turn, they don't do anything when they're first born. He started crying, and I got scared and I went and
picked him up. I went into the recovery room and there was a bunch of nurses and a doctor, and I said "Get
the doctor, quick! He put the baby on the gurney and the baby fell on the floor!" They said, "Oh, okay." So I
put the baby back on the gurney and held him, trying to quiet him down. I held the baby and said, "Oh, poor
baby, stop crying." The baby stopped crying, and I said "Hi there baby, you're so cute!"
Just joking around, I said "My name's Ellie. Can you say Ellie?" The baby said "Ellie" and it freaked me out
because the baby spoke. I said, "Oh. So you can talk." I said "Ellie" again and the baby repeated it: "Ellie".
I said, "Can you say Jesus?" The baby said "Jesus" and then said "Jesus" two or three more times. Then,
the baby started talking.
He said, "I was sent here to warn everybody, but no one will listen. This is a warning. The Messiah is at our
door. It's imminent. He's coming. He's coming. Everybody has to repent and change their ways. But no one
will listen. He's very, very upset. No one will listen. Jesus will be here. Tell everyone. Spread the word. They
have to repent. They have to mend their wicked, evil ways." And I was like, "Oh my goodness, okay, okay."
He said, "I was sent as a messenger, and I'm one of many miracles, but people won't believe them."
I run back into the room and say, "Everybody, come here! That baby is talking! He's talking and prophesying!
He's talking about Jesus the Messiah coming! Come quick! Come quick!" Everybody's coming and the baby's
still talking about the second coming and how they have to mend their ways and repent because God will
destroy them like a shaft of wheat, that one will be destroyed and the other will be left standing. He's just
going on and saying all this scripture, and everybody's saying, "Oh my goodness, the baby's talking!"
They're not listening to what the baby's saying, they're not obeying, they're just saying, "Oh my goodness,
he's talking! Get so-and-so here, get such-and-such." They're calling for different doctors, for them to
witness the baby talking, because it's not normal. But nobody's listening to the warnings that the baby is
Then the baby looks right at me and says, "The time is at hand. No one knoweth when the lord comes. He will
sneak in. Be prepared. Start now." He nods his head at me as he speaks as if to add emphasis.
They were all running around and yelling, "Oh look, come quick!" I just left. Then I was in another part of
the building, or maybe a different building. There was a man of some importance. He must have been
important because there were guards. He was a wicked, evil man.
There were six men dressed in dark robes of different colors. The robes were like the ones you see in the
Jesus movies, and their waists were tied and their heads were covered with a cloth draped down the sides.
They had more material over their shoulders. They were there to visit this man. They looked stoic. They were
in the hallway and I was there too. The first two walked through the door into the man's office and I grabbed
the third by his right arm. He was dressed in dark brown or black and on the side, like thrown over his
shoulder, he had material that had little stripes. I said to him, "You're an angel, aren't you?" He just looked
at me. He had a pained look in his face, like it hurt him to do what they were there to do. And then
immediately in my mind I knew that they were messengers of destruction.
I ran out the door and went outside. I went all the way outside. Then I heard this rumbling, this big, big, big,
big rumbling, and a big noise. I looked up and saw that I was in a big long street, all asphalt with lots of
buildings. After all that rumbling, everything got real quiet. And I got real scared but I was looking up the
street, noticing that the street wasn't flat but went up at an angle, like a hill.
Then, up in the distance, I saw a big flash. Everything got flashed like when you're taking a picture, and
there was a big "booooom". Everything far away looked like it got flashed. I got real scared and threw myself
on the ground. Right after that, it started rumbling real loud and everything started shaking. I was on the
ground and the ground started shaking a whole lot. People started screaming and I looked up again. In the
whole street that I had just seen, the ground started opening and buildings started falling on top of each other.
A bunch of people came out of the building that I had been in. There were about 40 of them, all screaming
and running in different directions. I looked up, and part of the building from the top was coming down. I
said, "Look up! Run!" Everybody started running the wrong way and I said "No, this way!" because the voice
was telling me where to go. I was running this way and they all went that way. They all got crushed, with big
pieces of building falling on them.
The streets were opening up in different places and I started running. There was a lady and a little girl, about
9 or 10 years old, coming with me. She was crying and I said "Come with me, come with me." I held her
hand. We were running and every time I told people "Come this way, this way", they would all go the wrong
way. Every time they'd go I'd see things falling on them. There were dead bodies everywhere.
The cars couldn't go because the streets were demolished and upturned. The asphalt went up and down, inside
and out. It was real chaotic. We were going and there was whole bunch more people coming behind us,
coming out of different buildings. Then the voice told me to hurry up and get to high ground. I knew which
building I had to go to.
Part of the building was already knocked down. There were big cement pieces and glass and debris
everywhere so you couldn't run real fast, you had to climb over all this stuff. I'm trying to get there and I'm
holding the little girl's hand, and the hand of the woman next to me. I said, "We have to go this way." The
woman said, "No, that way." And I said, "No, this way." And I started coming this way, and she was right
next to me. When I pulled away, because the voice said "Go, Now!", a big old piece of building fell right on
her. She was right next to me. I felt the air and everything.
I went with the little girl and we were trying to climb over all these things to get to the higher building.
Everything was all destroyed and there were these metal rods. We had to stand on them on the ledge so we
could get up to the building where we were supposed to go. I was climbing up and then I heard this rushing
sound, like lots and lots of rushing. I looked, and just where all the people had been, a bunch of water was
coming. And it got all of them. They were all screaming and the water was dirty water. Pipes were bursting
and water was gushing everywhere, and I don't know where all that other water came from.
I was holding onto the little girl on the ledge so we could get into the building, and I saw somebody in there
and it was a black lady, and I said, "Help me." She put her hand out and I put mine out and she grabbed us
and helped us in.
There were about 10 or 13 people in there, maybe a few more. There were all sitting down and there was a big
hole in the middle. Everything was dirty because everything had fallen out and part of the ceiling and roof
was gone. The people were all sitting around and they were screaming and crying. I said, "Let's pray. We
have to pray. We have to thank God." They were being real mean: "Thank him for what? For this?"
Somebody said a curse word: "^&%^&^" I said, "No, we have to pray. We have to thank him." Somebody
said, "Thank him for what?" I said, "For being alive. For not being dead like those people down there." Then
a man said, "She's right. Listen to her. Let's pray." That woman, the one who had said "For what?" said,
"I'll pray. I'll do the praying." I said, "No, I want to do it." The lady that was real quiet said, "Why do you
have to pray?" I said, "Because you have to pray in a certain way. There are certain things you have to say.
There's a certain order to prayer." The people who were there said "No, No" and the woman with the attitude
said, "I said, I'll pray." She got down and started saying one of those canned, rehearsed prayers.
We finished praying and the voice told me to get out of there. I left and the little girl was with me. When we
got out, the rumbling started again and everything started falling. The people in building we had just come
out of started screaming and they fell too. Then I was looking, and you couldn't see the sunlight. Everything
was real dark and there were real dark clouds. Everything was gray. Nothing was coming down such as ash
from a nuclear explosion, like you see in the movies. But everything was real, real dark.
After some time had gone by and we had already found a place to sleep, I kept thinking, "Gee, I can't even
get to my house because I don't know where I'm at." All of the landmarks were gone. There were no roads
and there were cars upturned. You could drive just a little bit since you kept running into debris and
everything. So, you couldn't get very far.
In another part of the vision, there was a bunch of people inside cars. There were a bunch of cars one place
and a bunch of cars another place, five or six cars, maybe more. They were shooting people for the cash they
were carrying. The people who had looted food and water from the grocery stores were selling it, but you
could only pay in cash. The people who had money in the banks didn't have any money because the banks
were destroyed. The only people who could eat or buy water were the ones who had money. I didn't have any
money with me because I had left my purse in that building when I ran out. So the little girl and I didn't have
a way to get water or food or anything. But, I just knew that God would take care of us.
I kept thinking that I needed to get to the other side of the street, but the cars had bad people in them. You
could tell they were bad. They were shooting at anybody that came by. If they saw you, they would shoot you
and then go search your pockets and take any money you had. That's how they were getting money for food
and water. They were using the cars just to shoot from.
I was with two or three other people and we kind of tried to stay in a little group. I had to cross the street.
The cars from this side were shooting at other cars on the other broken up street. The people in my group
ran across, but I looked and I was fat. I was real tired and I couldn't jump all the boulders fast enough. I
made it halfway and there were bullets whizzing all around. I lay on the ground and was sure I was going to
die. For just one second, everything got real quiet and the girl said, "Now! Run, run, run."
They stopped shooting and I looked and I thought I was all shot up but I wasn't, so I got up and finished
running the rest of the way. We left and went through more boulders and debris.
I remember everything was all dark, with all those big gray clouds. I was looking and there were more
rushing noises. You could hear them far away and look in the distance, and you could see they were a bunch
of tornadoes that started forming and were coming out of those clouds that were all dark. Not normal looking
clouds, but like the clouds you see in footage from atomic bomb tests. I counted three tornadoes, one right
next to the other. It was really a scary time.
In another part, there were dead bodies everywhere. People were hungry. The ones who didn't have money
couldn't buy any food nor drink anything. People were dying, there were people hurt everywhere. There were
no hospitals, everything was all destroyed and knocked down.
From there I went to another part, but there wasn't any destruction there or anything. But I was real, real
happy. And everything was real green. It was the greenest green of colors I'd ever seen. There were a lot of
bushes and shrubbery and trees, and the grass was a vibrant green, and there were beautiful birds
everywhere just singing and lots and lots of butterflies with lots of colors, the most beautiful butterflies I've
ever seen.
You could hear singing. People were singing, but I couldn't see any people. But there were beautiful voices
singing. They were singing "I Know That My Redeemer Lives". They were beautiful soprano voices. You
would look up and see lights floating. It was like energy, but kind of pulsing. That's where the beautiful
singing was coming from, and I just kind of knew that those were spirits. They weren't angels, but they were
spirits, like the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost. But that's where the music was coming from. It was beautiful, and
it was the sweetest sound and I felt so happy there. It was the most beautiful sounds and music I'd ever
heard. And I woke up and I was singing.
I was sitting on the bed, singing "I Know That My Redeemer Lives". My husband is usually a light sleeper
but he slept through the singing. I had to shake him real hard four times to get him to wake up. Then I got
up to go to the bathroom and my knees buckled.
When I woke up, I just knew that I had to write it down. I had to tell people. I was supposed to have told the
last time but I didn't know.
After I woke up, my bones hurt real bad and my muscles hurt real bad, and I had a real bad, pounding
headache all day. I remember after the one I had in Buffalo (about 7 years ago) I was real tired and
everything hurt. It's like when you exercise real hard one day and everything hurts the next day.
The next night, after I asked God what the flash was, I learned later that the big flash was caused by a
nuclear blast. Nukes were used in an attempt to deflect or destroy incoming meteors. We managed to stop
some but not others. We did it to ourselves.
June 30, 2002

I have been doing a search over the past many months on the subject of prophetic dreams and visions. I had
never had a prophetic dream in my life until after 9/11/2001. It appears there has been a quantum leap in the
incidents of ordinary people having significant glimpses into coming events, while it is true that in many cases
the data is peace meal, in some instances it is like reading tomorrow's newspapers. Keep in mind that these
people come from very diverse backgrounds. I expect that if these are the last days as I and many others
believe then the barriers that have separated Christians for centuries will come tumbling down. And all that
will remain is our personal relationship with Jesus.

"And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your
daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions."

So today, as we approach the end of the age and the time of the Lord's return, God is speaking through His
people with dreams and visions.

Do we know that all these voices are from God? Of course not, but to ignore the accumulative data that is
available is to stick one's head in the proverbial sand. There are simply to many voices echoing the same
essential message to turn away and ignore. This does not mean that we do not question the validity of such
things, but rather we test everything by the word and anything that violates Scripture is disregarded .

It is not my purpose to scare anyone or preach doom and gloom, but rather to encourage and call all to be a
watchman for our calling which is Christ Jesus our lord. I pray that each person that reads this knows the
Lord Jesus Christ as their personal savior. It is a time that all the saints of history have longed to witness
( the return of our Lord in glory ). Please if you have any question about your salvation click here

Leslie Johnson's Dream

April 15, 2002

In my dream, I saw Mary Gene Stephens at a meeting. Mary Gene is Hayseed Stephens’ wife. Hayseed is
the man God told that the largest oilfield in the world is located at the southwest end of the Dead Sea.
Mary Gene was not scheduled to speak and minister, but we had ministered together at the Perfect Touch
Women’s Conference in the past, so I asked her to minister with me. We ministered to many people.
While we were ministering, Mary Gene got a call from Hayseed. He said, “Mary Gene, you need to get
home. War is about to break out here in Israel!� She walked over to me and told me what Hayseed said
and then left to go home. That night after the meeting, I saw myself sleeping. (I had a dream within a dream.)
On television I saw a news report announcing that Israel had given the Palestinians a State.
I heard the Lord say, “You must tell everyone that oil is going to come forth soon. It will cause the Jewish
people to fight back for their land.� Then I heard the Lord say, “Let Baltimore know.�
I knew this could very easily start a global war. I keep asking the Lord, “Why Baltimore?�
When I awoke from the second dream, in my first dream, I began to tell Stan what the Lord had said.
Stan replied, “Leslie, there are people we must tell.� Then we met a man who was in a high position,
having both power and knowledge concerning what was truly going on in Israel. As I began to tell this man my
dream, I said, “For some reason we are to tell Baltimore.� I asked him, “Why Baltimore?�
He said, “Because there are a lot of Jewish people who live in Baltimore.� I said to him, “Stan and I
will be in Baltimore in a couple of months to do a Crusade.�
There were about eight of us who were discussing my dream. We needed to
find a place to talk. The man told us to follow him. Everyone was eager to find out more about this dream. We
all walked through what appeared to be an airport waiting area. As we walked through, I noticed a lot of
Jewish people—I could tell by the way they were talking and visiting. As we passed by one woman, I noticed
she was reading a small newspaper, like the Jerusalem Post. I was drawn to what she was saying. Speaking
with an accent, I heard her say, “Arafat is in the hospital.� She did not say why; however, she was happy
to hear he was in the hospital.
We made our way through the crowd into a small room used for an office. Inside this small room was a woman
already sitting. She was an older woman and would not get up to let us meet privately. As we began to talk and
visit she would say, “Huh, Huh?� We decided that she couldn’t hear very well so we let her sit there
as we continued on with our meeting. We shut the small sliding door behind us. The man whom we followed
into the room with said, “Don’t worry about the people outside the waiting room. Even if they can hear
us they will not understand, because they think what we are saying is foolishness anyway. We have so much
more information than they do and a deeper understanding of what is really going on, that they will not pay us
any attention.�
Once inside, this man with high connections in Israel said, “All right Leslie, tell me your dream.�
I spoke to him saying, “Israel will give the Palestinians a State, but it will be a temporary arrangement to
give the Jews enough time to regroup and get their armed forces prepared. Oil will come forth quickly. The
discovery of large amounts of oil will make all the Jewish people willing to fight for their land. It will lead to a
major war, almost like the whole world will get involved in this war. It will include many countries.�
End of Dream
I awoke and told Stan the dream. I believe the Lord has given me some revelation about it. The scary thing
for me is that, in a way, the Lord has put a time on this dream. I believe one of the signs to recognizing when
this will happen is the key word, Baltimore. We go to Baltimore for a Crusade June 21-25, 2002. However, in
my dream I remember thinking it was the first part of 2003 and Baltimore was in a couple of months, around
February or March. I am not sure of the timing other than knowing we go to Baltimore in June. I am not sure
it was talking about us going to Baltimore in June of 2002 or some other future event.
Another event that could signal it is near will be if Arafat goes into the hospital, and especially if the Jews
give the Palestinians a State.
The older woman in the room, who had a hearing problem, represents the church. There will be many,
including Christians, who will be thrilled with the Israelis giving the Arabs, the Moslems, a declared State.
They will think, “Yea! Finally peace!�
The people in the outside waiting room area who didn’t care or understand the significance of what we
were saying represents the world. People of the world do not want to hear the warning. They don’t want to
hear the truth. They just want to have fun. Peace will only be a smoke screen and only for a short time. Oil
will spring forth and cause the Jews from around the world to return and fight for their land.
In that Hayseed and Mary Gene Stephens were both in the dream, means that Hayseed is about to discover a
massive oilfield in Israel. I believe the more we pray and seek the Lord, He will give us more revelation.
Order of Events
1. Ministering
2. About to be war in Israel
3. Tell Baltimore
4. Arafat in hospital
5. Palestinians given a State
6. Oil found in Israel
7. Jews home to fight for land
Dreams of Tornados and the Second Coming

Cliff Hursey- 1996

The First Dream:

I dreamed that I was standing in the office building were I work, looking out of the window which faces east. In
the distance, miles away, I could see that storm clouds on the horizon were churning, and gradually turning in
a circle.

As I watched, the clouds began turning faster and faster. I called others to look, as the turning now filled the

The spinning clouds formed a gigantic tornado, that was so large that it was wider than it was tall. It was
monstrous! I could hear the rumble and groaning of the power of the storm where I stood. As I looked at the
impossibly large tornado, I noticed that it was coming closer, and aiming directly for me. Oddly enough, I felt
no fear, but was instead trying to warn the others there who were with me that the storm was coming.

The Second Dream

Several weeks later, I dreamed again.

I found myself in the same spot, looking from the same window as before. I must note here that I have never
in my life returned to a dream before. But there I was, as if no time had passed at all. But, indeed, things had


The tornado was now right up to the window, literally sucking the glass out of the window frames. I could see
people being taken up by the storm, these people were bright white, as if they were made of fine china. Skin,
clothes, all were the brightest white.

The power of the storm was unbelievable as it lapped at the windows and churned just feet away.

As I looked at it, I noticed that I was not afraid, but a overpowering sense of urgency came over me.

When I awoke at this point, the Lord spoke to me clearly about the dreams. He told me that the tornado was
the time of his coming. It was approaching more rapidly than anyone could imagine, and would overtake those
who were not prepared.

He did not tell me specifically who those were who were being taken up in the storm.

The Third Dream

A couple of nights later, I had a third dream.

This time, I was in my home, and someone knocked at the door. When I opened it, there was a fierce storm
raging outside, wind and rain were pelting down.

And at the door, stood a bride.

And I was expecting her. She was not my bride, but more like a daughter or a close friend, that is the feeling
that I had.

She was standing there (I can still see this just like it was only a moment ago) with her head bowed, looking at
me. It was obvious that she had struggled hard to arrive, but was here now, at the end of her journey through
the storm. She was beautiful, and was holding a bouquet of white flowers, many small flowers like daisies. She
was dripping, soaked to the bone from the rain, tussled and tossed, tired, but well.

I opened the door and stood aside to let her in.

At that point, the dream ended, and I awoke with a feeling of hope and contentment.

The bride is, I feel, the church of Christ. The real Church, the one who loves Him, not the church in buildings.
The church that would come through a storm to be with Him. And she had.
The Prophecies of St. Malachy

Updated April 21, 2005

Date: 1139

St. Malachy, an Irish Catholic bishop in the 12th century, according to his biographer, St. Bernard of
Clairvaux, in his book "Life of Saint Malachy," was known to have the gift of prophecy and even pre-
dicted the exact day and hour of his own death. St. Malachy was canonized in 1190 by Pope Clement III.

St. Malachy was visiting Rome in 1139 when he wrote down this extraordinary vision in which he claims to
have foreseen all of the popes from the death of Innocent II until the destruction of the church and the
return of Christ. He named exactly 112 popes from that time until the end.

St. Malachy wrote a few prophetically descriptive words in Latin about each one of the popes. He then gave
the manuscript to Pope Innocent II and it was deposited in the Vatican Archives where it was forgotten for
several centuries. Then in 1590, it was rediscovered and published.

The interesting thing is that scholars have matched the brief 110 descriptive predictions with each of the 110
popes and anti-popes that there have been ( through Pope John Paul II ) since Innocent II. Though they are
somewhat obscure, they have fit the general profile of each of the popes.

For instance of Pope Innocent XI, who reigned from 1676 to 1689 *Malachy wrote "Bellua Insatiabilis", that
is, "An insatiable beast." History records that Innocent was never "sine Cibo", that is, he was never without
Let a short list be given here, of the last 10 Popes, showing in brief the accuracy of Malachy's prophecies:

The Burning Fire. PIUS X. 1903-1914. This Pope showed a burning passion for spiritual renewal in the Church.

Religion Laid Waste. BENEDICT XV. 1914-1922. During this Pope's reign saw Communism move into Russia
where religious life was laid waste, and World War I with the death of millions of Christians who were carnage
in Flanders Field and elsewhere.

Unshaken Faith. PIUS XI. 1922-1939. This Pope faced tremendous pressure from fascist and sinister powers in
Germany and Italy, but he was an outspoken critic of Communism and Fascism which enraged Hitler.

An Angelic Shepherd. PIUS XII. 1939-1958. This Pope had an affinity for the spiritual world and received
visions which have not been made public. Peter Bander says Pius XII "has emerged as one of the great Popes
of all time," and he "was in the truest sense of the word an Angelic Pastor to the flock..."

Pastor and Mariner. JOHN XXIII. 1958-1963. John was a pastor to the world, much beloved, and the Patriarch
of Venice. The connection to "mariner" is thus remarkable.

Flower of Flowers. PAUL VI. 1963-1978. Paul's coat-of-arms depicts three fleurs-de-lis, corresponding to
Malachy's prophecy.

Of the Half Moon. JOHN PAUL I. 1978-1978. John Paul I was elected Pope on August 26, 1978, when there
was a half moon. He reigned 33 days, that is, about one month, when he died, although many think he was

The Labor of the Son. JOHN PAUL II. 1978-2005. John Paul II is the most travelled Pope in history. He has
circled the globe numerous times, preaching to huge audiences everywhere he goes. Even though he was once
shot, he has not seemed to slow down. He has recently written a book which has enjoyed a large circulation.
Like the sun which never ceases to labor and provides light daily, this Pope has been incessant. John Paul II
was born on May 18, 1920. On that date in the morning there was a near total eclipse of the sun over Europe...

The Glory of the Olive. The Order of St. Benedict has said this Pope will come from their order. It is
interesting that Jesus gave his apocalyptic prophecy about the end of time from the Mount of Olives.
This Pope will reign up to the beginning of the tribulation Jesus spoke of.
Amazingly fulfilled in the selection of Cardinal Razinger from Germany as Pope Benedict XVI on April 19,

PETER the Roman. This final Pope will likely be Satan, taking the form of a man named Peter who will gain a
worldwide allegiance and adoration. He will be the one that bible students have long foretold. If it were
possible, even the very elect would be deceived. Malachy's final words are:
In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock
among many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city (Rome, the seat of the Vatican) will be destroyed
and the dreadful Judge will judge the people.

NOTE: Some Biblical scholars conclude that the last Pope, Peter the Roman, will be the False Prophet of Rev.
13:11-15 (the second beast) who is described as having “two horns like a lamb," (a religious leader). He
supposedly will be the Antichrist’s prophet. Therefore, the counterfeit trinity will be Satan, Antichrist and
the False Prophet.

*Sometimes spelled Malachay



The Vision of General George McClellan

Closely related to George Washington's Vision, but not as well known is a vision given to General George B.
McClellan, one of the generals who took part in the second peril against America ( see George Washington's
Vision. ) The only source I know concerning this Vision is the Evening Courier of Portland, Maine. It carries
a lengthy account of a vision purporting to be the General's own words. The General was alive at the time and
could have reputed the account and demanded an immediate retraction if it were false! General McClellan is
not as well known as other military leaders, in America, but he did serve his country well, despite his faults
and his disagreements with President Lincoln which eventually led to his removal from his Command. At the
time of this vision, McClellan had gone to Washington, D.C. to take over the command of the United States
Army. This being the third day since his arrival, he was working, at two o'clock at night, over the reports of
scouts and checking his maps. Being weary from work he leaned his head on his arms on the table and fell
asleep. In about ten minutes the locked door suddenly opened, and in strode someone right up to him and in
a voice of authority said: "General McClellan, do you sleep at your post? Rouse you, or ere it can be
prevented, the foe will be in Washington. The General then gives some details of his strange feelings.
Seemingly suspended in infinite space from a hollow distance above him, he heard a voice. He started up - not
really knowing whether he was awake or not. The walls of the room, with its furniture and other objects were
no longer visible, but the maps covering the table were still before him. Then, he was gazing upon a living
map of America from the Mississippi river to the Atlantic Ocean. The General was unable to identify the
being standing before him, only a vapor having the general outline of a man. Then he looked at the
mysterious map before him and was amazed to see the movements of the various troops and had a complete
picture of the enemy's lines and distribution of forces. Being greatly elated, he felt he now knew what
strategy to use to end the way speedily and victoriously. But then the elation gave way to great
apprehension, because on this moving map, he saw the enemy's soldiers moving to the very position he had
intended to occupy in a few days. He then knew that the enemy was aware of his plan of attack. Then the
voice spoke again, "General McClellan, you have been betrayed. And had not God willed otherwise, ere the
sun had set the Confederate flag would have waved above the Capitol and your own grave. But note what you
see. Your time is short." Noting the movement of troops of on the living map- he took his pencil and
transferred their position to the paper map on his desk. Then McClellen was aware of the figure near
becoming luminous with light and glory, bright as the noonday sun. Then raising his view he looked into the
face of George Washington. Sublime and dignified our first President looked upon the bewildered General
and spoke the following: "General McClellan, while yet in the flesh, I beheld the birth of the American
Republic. It was indeed a hard and bloody one, but God's blessing was upon the nation and therefore, though
this, her first great struggle for existence, He sustained her and with His mighty had brought her out
triumphantly. A century has not passed since then, and yet the child Republic has taken her position of peer
with nations whose pages of history extend for ages into the past. She has, since those dark days, by the favor
of God, greatly prospered. And how, by very reason of this prosperity, has been brought to her second great
struggle. This if by far the most perilous ordeal she has; passing as she is from childhood to opening
maturity, she is called on to accomplish that vast result, self-control, self rule, that in the future will place
her in the van of power and civilization... "But her mission will not then be finished for ere another century
shall have gone by, the oppressors of the whole earth, hating and envying her exaltation, shall join
themselves together and raise up their hands against her. But if she shall be found worthy of her high calling
they shall surely be discomfited, and then will be ended her third and last great struggle for existence.
Thenceforth shall the Republic go on, increasing in power and goodness, until he borders shall end only in the
remotest corners of the earth, and the whole earth shall beneath her shadowing wing become a Universal
Republic. Let her in her prosperity, however remember the Lord her God, her trust be always in him, and
she shall never be confounded." After this, Washington raised his hand over the General's Head in blessing
and immediately a peal of thunder rumbled through space. McClellan awoke with a start and found himself in
his room and spread out before him on the table were his maps. In viewing the maps, he noticed a
difference, for they were covered with marks, signs, and figures which he had made during the vision. The
General had to walk around the room to realize he was actually awake. Then, taking another look at the
maps he found the markings still there. Realizing this experience was Divinely given, he ordered his horse
saddled and went from camp to camp ordering changes to be made, which were necessary to frustrate the
enemy's planned offensive. The strategy was successful and prevented the City of Washington from being
captured. The Confederate Army, at that time was so close that Abraham Lincoln sitting in the White House
could hear the roar of Confederate artillery. Thus the Union was saved and General McClellan concludes his
account of his Vision with these words.: "Our beloved, glorious Washington shall again rest quietly, sweetly
in his tomb, until perhaps the end of the Prophetic Century approaches that is to bring the Republic to a third
and final struggle, when he may once more laying aside the cements of Mount Vernon, become a Messenger
of Succor and Peace from the Great Ruler, who has all Nations of this Earth in His keeping. "But the future
is too vast for our comprehension; we are children of the present. When peace shall have folded her bright
wings and settled our land the strange, unearthly map marked while the Spirit eyes of Washington looked
down, shall be preserved among American Archives as a precious reminder to the American nation what in
their second great struggle for existence, they owe to God and the Glorified Spirit of Washington. Verily the
works of God are above the understanding of man!"
