God often delayed His judgements which He had predicted by the prophets until it looked like it wasn't going to happen and the prophet was made to look like a fool, so that the sheep would be divided from the goats, the believers from the scoffers.
But then suddenly it happened, and it often happened so suddenly that the scoffers no longer had a chance to repent!
This has happened many times throughout history and Bible history: The people who didn't believe and scoffed said, "We'll wait and see if it happens and then we'll believe." But these unbelievers were caught napping when it happened and found it was too late to believe, so they were wiped out for their unbelief.
Because it's the unbelievers God is going to judge. We have predicted America's doom, but I'm sure there are plenty of scoffers who are saying "Well see, it didn't happen". But I believe it's going to happen so suddenly and unexpectedly that the scoffers are not going to have time to escape, they're going to be caught in the judgements of God.
Here's the picture that I had today (May 11, 1974): I looked like Moses with long hair and a long beard blowing in the wind, and I saw myself standing on hill here talking to these people. I had a long flowing robe and looked just like these pictures you see of Moses.
It was as though I were comforting them, pacifying them and telling them not to worry, that everything would be all right if they'd only call on the Lord, He would save us.
Apparently God was giving me a vision of what's going to happen--or symbolic of what's going to happen.
The wind was really blowing!--It was virtually howling! It was a big storm! But from my heavenly vantage point from which I was seeing the vision, this same horrible storm was blowing all over the World!
It looked like half the whole Earth was involved in this one huge terrible horrible storm! This storm was absolutely raging! I've never seen or heard any storm like it with such a deafening roar! The main storm was in North America, Europe and the Mideast.
But though the storm was not here in Tenerife, we were getting very strong winds from it. Even though the storm was in the distance, we were feeling these strong gusts of wind here. Now the winds obviously must have been symbolic of worldwide war or trouble! Because at the point I was praying, "Lord is this true, and why is it true that Tenerife is going to have three bad years?" He told me that not only Tenerife but the whole World is going to have three bad years!
The people were frightened, really scared! They were coming running to me to know what to do, and I was telling them, "Don't worry, if you turn to the Lord and pray to God, God will take care of us!" The idea was that though the storm was bad and we might feel the effects of it, it was not going to destroy us if we'd pray and ask the Lord to take care of us.
But the strange thing was that the people were coming to me for the answer! They were running to me for help as though they already knew me and that I might have the answer! It was just like I was a known prophet and the people came to me seeking help!
