"40 Days!"--And Nineveh Shall Be Destroyed! (Jonah 3:4)

November 12, 1973 by David Brandt Berg

For when they shall cry, "Peace, peace!"- then cometh sudden destruction! (1Thes 5:3 )

Forward by the webmaster: This is just one of many articles that David Berg wrote predicting the judgements of God on the USA for her many sins. Please also see below for a list of other articles and a reader's comments about it:

Update June 4, 2013: This year is exactly 40 years since David Berg received this revelation. My friend Roger Fruchey shared with me that Ezekiel 4:6 may very well apply!

And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year. -- Ezekiel 4:6
Original 40 Days tract

(The day after the Nov. 11th (1973) cease-fire signing (between Egypt and Israel) David woke me early in the morning with this:)

There is going to be 40 days of warning, then Nineveh shall be destroyed! The Comet (Kohoutec) will be at its brightest and most visible for 40 days. But the puzzle is, when does the 40 days begin? It's giving a 40-day warning of something, whatever it is, then comes the destruction, unless the people repent like Nineveh did because of the message of the Prophet. If the people repent, the Lord will relent or there'll be a descent! But if not, then there'll be a very great destruction!

But it will give a warning of 40 days, and then destruction! I don't know the destruction of what or whom, but it is destruction. But it's an important enough destruction to warn the whole world, so it's going to affect the whole world!

It's like the voice of the prophet Jonah to Nineveh, the decadent world capital of Assyria: --"40 days, then Nineveh shall be destroyed!" But when Nineveh repented, God spared her a little longer. But I don't think this Nineveh is going to repent!--And the only Nineveh that could possibly mean is America, of course. America has been the ruling power of the world. America is now the declining power, and Russia is the ascending power.

It's 40 days from now till December 21st! God gives us warning--Early Warning System! God gives us early warning before the world. From November 11 to December 21 is 40 days, and from December 21 to January 31 is 40 days!

God gives us early warning, twice the warning He gives the world, because we have Early Warning System--the Prophet of God! We know long before the world knows. He gives us twice the warning He gives the wicked! He warn His saints 40 days before the 40 days! November 11 to December 21, and He gives world warning December 21 to January 31.

Then when they cry, "peace, peace!"--comes sudden destruction! You See? Or maybe it start earlier, I don't know. Forty days warning to Nineveh, God warned Jonah long before that. God warned Jonah 40 days before. Forty days later he got to Nineveh, and then he said, "Forty days and Nineveh shall be destroyed!"

But God gives us 40 days before the world, then he gives the world 40 days. He gives us 40 days like Prophet Jonah, you know?--And then He gives Nineveh 40 days.--And that's the end! Either January 11 or January 21 or January 31, somewhere in there God's going to destroy modern Nineveh, modern Babylon and its king. King Richard (Nixon) --the Last!--King Richard the Last! (King Richard the Lyin'-Hearted!)

God bless and keep us all in these troubled times to come!--Amen.

My name is James Arendt. I was raised in the Hegewisch neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, served in the USAF from 1970 to 1974, and became a full-time missionary for Christ living 40 years in Japan, 3.5 years in Russia, and a few months in other countries such as Finland, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, South Korea, Taiwan and mainland China where I also served the King of Kings, Jesus, as an Ambassador for His Kingdom. My full bio.

On September 24, 2023, I had an accident and broke the bone of the tip of my left elbow. A boy ran in front of my motorbike less than 2 meters from me as I was leaving home. I stopped suddenly and my front tire slid on the sandy concrete road which caused me to fall. I did not hit the boy. On October 18th I had surgery done on my elbow. The doctor put in titanium rods to hold my bones together. The entire procedure including an entire week in the hospital was roughly $4000 USD. This was done in the Philippines where my wife and I have been living since June this year.

X-rays of bone before and after surgery that inserted titanium rods to reinforce my broken bone.

Before and after one week in the hospital.

I'm now undergoing therapy to be able to bend my arm again.

It would be a super blessing to us if any of the visitors of this website can help us cover this expense!
