The End-Time Whispering Vision

What the Endtime will be like! - Part I

By David Brandt Berg - 1960

--A prophetic vision given over 45 years ago of things soon to come!

--Are you ready?

GREETINGS, BROTHERHOOD OF LOVE, comrades of love! We here gathered together in this dark cellar room, send you greetings out there wherever you may be.

WE ARE BROADCASTING OVER OUR SMALL CLANDESTINE RADIO transmitter concealed in my suitcase from this darkened cellar room. The music or talking you may hear in the background is because they are trying to jam our station that you might not hear us.

WE CAN SEE JUST A BARE GLIMMER OF LIGHT through the one long window at sidewalk level.--A very dirty window which we've purposely left that way so that we could look out but none can see in. We have no other light in here lest we be detected and discovered.

THROUGH THE WINDOW WE CAN SEE SOME OF THE TERRIBLE DESTRUCTION, debris and desolation still remaining from the sudden atomic attack which bombed us out in only one hour. The scene which I see is the same I saw in the vision which I told some of you of some time ago, before all of this happened.

THERE WAS THAT FIRST GRADUAL INFILTRATION and taking over of our thoughts and our education, and even into some of our churches. These principles which they taught were so much similar to our own and yet were so diabolical and fiendish. They pretended to be emissaries of love with a concern for mankind, but were truly motivated by hate, inspired by the very Devil himself.

THEY WORE A BEAUTIFUL MASK OF PEACE and so called freedom and social uplift, but underneath was the cold, hard, cruel, iron, fiendish, demonic power of Satan himself! They crept into our institutions in the form of university professors and high school teachers, and into our churches as moralistic pastors preaching their social gospel, and even into our Government and State Department as those who were concerned about world welfare, the United Nations and One World.

BUT THEY ALWAYS LEFT GOD OUT OF THE PICTURE AND EXALTED MAN and his ability to solve his own problems by his united effort under this great anti-Christ system and One World Government.

GRADUALLY THEY EVEN CREPT INTO OUR VERY MINDS with their doctrine and their teaching deceiving many that could be deceived because they had rejected the truth, until multitudes were open and ready for them and received them with open arms. But many of the hard-core conservative reactionaries, patriots they were called, the nationalists, militarists, ecclesiastical leaders and so on, could not be swayed by the Great Lie.--This diabolical, fiendish, subtle, deceitful, hypnotic suggestion, demoniacally conveyed into the very minds and the spirits of those deceived.

BUT MANY WERE NOT DECEIVED BECAUSE OF THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH, and many simply resented the fact that they were going to have to give up their way of life, their riches and their wealth.

THESE THOUGHT THAT FORCE WAS OUR ONLY POSSIBLE HOPE OF SURVIVAL to stop this flood of propaganda that was overwhelming and swallowing us up. They thought that the only possible chance was resistance by force and sudden atomic attack to wipe out the Antichrist enemy before they could attack us. Poor fools!

NOW THOSE WHO RESORTED TO THE SWORD HAVE BEEN SLAIN WITH THE SWORD, as our leader once warned us. The anti-Christ agents had thoroughly infiltrated our government agencies and our militaristic establishments so that every move was known by their central intelligence agency in the headquarters of the Antichrist government.

THEY HIT US BEFORE OUR MILITARY LEADERS COULD EVEN PUSH THE BUTTON which would have sent the bombers and the missiles on their way to destroy the enemy. They hit us suddenly and without warning in every potential area of possible retaliation and completely wiped out those potentials, including some of our greatest cities, the seat of government and headquarters of military establishments. Even many of their own agents died in the holocaust as martyrs for their cause because it was the only way that they could possibly knock us out before we attacked them.

STRANGE HOW SOME OF US THOUGHT THAT THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO TAKE OVER PEACEFULLY through their propaganda of peace and plenty without any war. Others thought that it would be entirely through the atomic war that they would take over, if they ever did.--And actually it was a combination of both.

BY THE TIME THEY ATTACKED US THEY WERE SO STRONG HERE THAT THEY DID NOT HAVE TO COMPLETELY WIPE US OUT, but just enough to knock out the centres of greatest potential resistance or retaliation. Their own people and their sympathisers and followers here immediately took over and stopped any other possible chance of retaliation.

IT WAS BY TOTAL POWER THAT WE WERE CONQUERED!--The war of words, the war of ideology, the war of ideas, the war of propaganda, the war of infiltration with completely dedicated secret agents, together with that final horrible holocaustic blow of those awful atomic explosions. Some of them were set off at a given signal by their own agents right here in our own land, each themselves dying in the blast, gladly giving their lives for their cause.--What dedication to the doctrine of the Devil! Oh, that some of our brethren had been as dedicated in the days that preceded this awful calamity! But thank God, that through our own leaders He's working out His purpose in it all.

GOD HAS BROUGHT HIS TRUE ONES TO THEIR KNEES in fervent supplication and prayer. It has meant a tremendous purifying of His Church, His true Church, His people, not the buildings which are now gone. Across the square I can see some of the rubble of what was once a mighty, fine, proud, great ecclesiastical structure.

THE GREAT BUILDINGS THAT THEY CALL CHURCHES ARE NOW JUST HEAPS OF STONE and debris. What a loss and waste of time, money and effort for those who put so much of their lives and hearts into those dead stones and timbers which could not do anything for the Kingdom of God!

HOW PITIFUL ARE THOSE WHO DEPENDED ENTIRELY UPON THOSE GATHERINGS in those buildings for their spiritual inspiration and help! They never learned how to know their own God and stand alone if need be in order to fight the battle for Him, or even in the remaining church buildings that still stand. Now there are no longer services. Now there are no longer gatherings and assemblies.

THERE ARE GATHERINGS NOW BUT NOT OF THE BROTHERHOOD OF CHRIST. Now it's the diabolical dogmatism of Satan himself, using churches, lecture centres and schools to teach their heinous propaganda.

THE CENTRE OF IT ALL IS THE SAME OLD HARD CORE PHILOSOPHY OF ALL SATANIC CULTS and isms: "Man is basically good and righteous and can save himself." They are substituting their Bible and the teachings and traditions of their anti-Christ system for the Truth of God.

MEANWHILE OUR BIBLES HAVE BEEN TAKEN AWAY from us, except for a very few which have managed to keep them concealed and hidden at the very risk of their lives. Our own gatherings and assemblings are completely forbidden. Our pastors and leaders have been liquidated, destroyed or imprisoned. Even our beloved hymn books have been removed from us.

ALL DENOMINATIONAL AND ECCLESIASTICAL ORGANISATION HAS BEEN BANNED, except that which completely agrees with the anti-Christ government and agrees to preach its teachings and its dogmas. Some of the few remaining pulpits have become nothing but teaching centres for the Antichrist System, and their ecclesiastics and their priests are being used as stooges for the Antichrist.

WE THOUGHT THIS COULD NEVER HAPPEN TO US, and yet it had already happened to others before it happened to us. It happened in other nations; the horrors of war, utter destruction and the horrors of the infiltration of this heinous anti-Christ-spirited doctrine and political, economic and spiritual imprisonment.

SOME HAD ALREADY KNOWN THE MARTYRDOM OF RESISTANCE against the power but felt that they must stand out, resist, fight against it and die if need be, in their fight for freedom and truth. Others, when they saw the hopelessness of the Cause, decided to cooperate as far as they could with the Antichrist power in order to prolong their lives sufficiently that they might continue to spread the Truth secretly from behind closed doors by secret radio, and by leaflet and secret press, but mostly by person-to-person whispering in the ear the witness of the Truth.

SOME OF US HAVE REMAINED. Some of us are still here, but there are not many left and they have ferreted us out one by one.

AT FIRST THEY CAME ALL SMILES PREACHING THEIR PEACE and social uplift. They told us that surely this was good for the whole world, for all of us, this sharing and helping that all mankind might be bettered and helped.

IT WAS TRUE THAT THE CHURCH HAD FAILED. The rich church had even lived selfishly and failed to distribute its goods to the poor.

OUR NATION HAD LIVED SELFISHLY and failed to help the starving and underprivileged around the world. Our graineries were full to bursting and overflowing and yet millions were starving around the world, and to these the Antichrist told their lies and persuaded them to rise up against us. Yes, we were guilty, we had no excuse. Too much of that propaganda was the truth. It was true, but insidiously used to further their lie.

IT WAS TRUE THAT MANY OF OUR RELIGIOUS LEADERS WERE MERE HYPOCRITES, wolves in sheep's clothing. It was true that many of them only wanted power. They were not concerned about the poor and the humble, the lowly, the sick and the needy. It was true that many of them were much more interested in furthering their particular shibboleth, doctrine, dogma and denomination than they were in furthering the sweet message of the love of Our Leader, the True Gospel of Jesus Christ.

THEY WERE MORE INTERESTED IN FIGHTING OVER THEIR BUILDINGS and having a big crowd to show what a fine church they had. They wanted to have a good job, a big income, fine homes and fine cars and pretty little services with pretty little messages, and gorgeous music from fine pipe organs and all of the rest of it. They were going through the formalism and ceremonialism which meant nothing in the eyes of God. They had a form of Godliness but without the power thereof.

THEY WERE PRETENDING AND CLAIMING TO BE CHRISTIANS, claiming to have the love of Christ, bearing the name Christian and yet acting just the same as the rest of the world, only with a more self-righteous attitude. They thought they were better because they were church people and went to church services. They assumed they were better because they placed a paltry little bit of their wealth in the offering plate each Sunday morning.

THEY DARED TO THINK THAT THEY WERE SAVED BECAUSE OF THEIR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS!--Ahh, what pitiful fools they were, and how deceived they were by their own ecclesiastical leaders who encouraged them in this very same thing! Surely they were of the doctrines of the Laodiceans and befitted His description of them, the sleepy church!

"THESE THINGS SAITH THE AMEN, THE FAITHFUL AND TRUE WITNESS, the beginning of the creation of God: I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot!--So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot: I will spue thee out of My mouth!"

"BECAUSE THOU SAYEST I AM RICH AND INCREASED WITH GOODS, and I have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked; I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see!"

"AND AS MANY AS I LOVE I REBUKE and chasten: be zealous therefore and repent! Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him."

BUT THEY DID NOT SEE, THEY WOULD NOT HEAR, they did not listen. They did not understand. They were asleep, as though hypnotised by the beautiful, flowing words of their false prophets. "Our God is a God of Love.--He will not bring this destruction upon us!"

"AFTER ALL, WE ARE A CHRISTIAN NATION in the world. We are a leader. We are great, wonderful, fine, righteous people! God will not let this happen to us! Oh yes, it has happened elsewhere, but not here.--Never here!" But now it has happened! Now we know and now they know!--That is, those that are left, but precious few we are!

SO MANY HAVE BEEN DESTROYED, FIRST BY THE ATOMIC ATTACK AND THEN THE REVOLUTION which swept like a flood in its wake, sweeping the Antichrist force to power. But it has been good for us. As He said, "As many as I love I rebuke and chasten, be zealous therefore and repent!"

SURELY IF THIS HAD NOT COME UPON US MANY OF US WOULD NOT HAVE REPENTED. We would not have listened, and we would not have understood. God has used it to purify us, even as He said by the mouth of His prophet Daniel. How well I remember that passage, that though my Bible is now gone, taken from me, and how well I remember that midnight vision on the street of Madison, Wisconsin.

Bible teacher explaining why Jesus will not return till after the Great Tribulation

GOD SO LONG AGO SHOWED ME WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN, though many would not believe my words! I saw the awful destruction that was coming, the terrible devastation, and God's pitiful remaining Church driven underground in order to survive. God revealed to me why He was preparing us and why we were having to learn and memorise His Word so deep in our hearts that we might remember it when our Bibles were gone.

HE WAS CAUSING US TO MEET TOGETHER IN SMALL GROUPS and homes, quietly and almost secretly in order that we might know how to carry on at a time like this. He was teaching us to get along with the leadership of the simplest layman and without the learned ecclesiastics and denominational barriers and organisation, preparing us for a time like this!

NOW I SEE AS I DID THEN, HOW GOD WAS PREPARING A CADRE: An officership of insignificant laymen and layleaders, average workmen and average Christians, not ecclesiastics, trained ministers or ordained pulpit preachers, but simple Children of God; simple little laymen, housewives and labourers who could carry on His work after the others were gone.

HOW STRONG IT WAS THAT HIS VOICE SPOKE THESE WORDS to my heart on that eventful night when I saw through the sideboard that terrible holocaust of desolation and persecution that was coming, and the horrible tribulation: "And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate." How true that is, now to happen in our very churches, yea lo in the very hearts of those who were called His people, but truly knew Him not.

"AND SUCH AS DO WICKEDLY AGAINST THE COVENANT SHALL HE CORRUPT by flatteries: but"--thank God--"the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits! And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by the flame, by the captivity, and by spoil many days. Now when they shall fall they shall be holpen with a little help; but many shall cleave to them with flatteries."--Truly this has come to a pass!

THEY HAVE TAKEN OVER AND HAVE SET UP THE ABOMINATION which maketh desolate, not only in the temple at Jerusalem but also in our very churches! They have endeavoured to do so in the very hearts of the people, the true temple of God, the one and only temple of God, the Spiritual temple of God.

THEY HAVE SUCCEEDED IN THOSE WHO KNEW HIM NOT and were not truly His temple. But in His true temple, those true remaining believers, they have not set up that abomination, that worship of the Antichrist, the very Devil himself incarnate. Truly he has corrupted some by flatteries, but the people that know their God shall be strong, and are strong, stronger now than they ever were, doing exploits, great and mighty works such as we never dreamed of!

MIGHTY MIRACLES ARE HAPPENING, great and mighty works! Though we are small seemingly weak people, God has manifested His power now more than ever before. But you out there know this, you've seen it--if you're listening.

THOSE OF US THAT UNDERSTOOD BEFORE IT CAME TO PASS HAVE ENDEAVOURED TO INSTRUCT YOU. We have endeavoured to teach you, and to carry on even without those buildings and organisations and leaders that we once had, even without our Bibles! Yet many have fallen by sword and by flame and by captivity and by spoil for many days now, and there are precious few of us left. But when they fell, many were helped to show that God was with them even though they may have died as martyrs.

GOD HAS MANIFESTED HIMSELF IN MIRACULOUS POWER like at the crucifixion of our Leader when the great sky was darkened, and the sun and the moon did not give their light and the earth shook with a great earthquake. Many have had miraculous manifestations at the time of their martyrdom to show the evil forces that God was with them even though they died. But many have cleaved to sum of our groups with flatteries and pretended to be one of us in order to spy on us that they might seek us out and destroy us.

SOME OF US OF UNDERSTANDING HAVE ALSO FALLEN to try us and purge us and to make us white. Now we know why God has allowed it to happen, even to the time of the end, because it is yet for a time appointed.

WE WERE NOT READY FOR HIS COMING. We were not yet a refined church. We were not a mighty strong church doing great exploits. There were some, yes, thank God for the few who were ready and purified and doing many mighty works, even greater works than He had done while on Earth.

THE ANTICHRIST LEADER HAS DONE ACCORDING TO HIS WILL. He has exalted himself and magnified himself above every god, speaking marvelous things against the God of gods, our God, and is prospering until God's indignation shall be accomplished, for that that is determined it shall be done! Hallelujah!

GOD IS WORKING OUT HIS PURPOSE and His good through it all! As He said, many that I love I will rebuke and chasten, for whom the lord loveth He chasteneth, and that we should go through great tribulation and come forth as gold, tried in the fiery furnace of affliction and persecution and tribulation!

WHAT A DIFFERENT PICTURE THAN WHAT SOME HAVE ENVISIONED of floating to heaven with Jesus at His coming at an earlier date on flowery beds of ease to be gathered in the clouds with no suffering, no affliction, no persecution, no tribulation, nothing to truly prepare them in heart and mind to become desperately bold witnesses for Him.--Nothing to give them an opportunity to truly earn a crown by the very blood of their bodies!

THEIR FALSE PROPHETS HAD TAUGHT THEM THAT THEY WERE TO ESCAPE ALL OF THIS simply because they were saved and Christians, and that Jesus would come before and take them away. He had made it so clear and so plain in what He had said, "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. Except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake--our sake, His True Church and the people of God, the genuine believers, the born-again--"those days shall be shortened!" Thank God!

TRULY IT CANNOT BE MUCH LONGER. We have borne so much it seems that we can endure no more! Surely this promise will come true soon, and for our sake's that remain God shall shorten these horrible days of horror on earth! But they have been good for us because we have been determined to know Him as never before, and with powers never before fully possessed we have witnessed with boldness which we'd never dared to do before! True, many of us have died as a result, as martyrs, but the greater cross the greater glory, Hallelujah!

THOSE PEACE PROPHETS PROPHESIED THAT NONE WOULD SUFFER, that He would come and take us away secretly, unbeknownst to the rest of the world before anything terrible happened!--I wonder how they explained the fact that so many had already died as martyrs, so many already suffered great tribulation and horrible persecution, from the very beginning until now! Why did they think they would escape simply because they had peace for a little while and they were fat and rich enjoying their spiritual complacency?

SURELY THEY IGNORED THE SCRIPTURES, for it said plainly, "For as the lightening cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be." Certainly that was to be no secret, that was not to be a mysterious disappearance. He is truly to come in the clouds, and we are waiting for that coming now. We think it cannot be much longer when "every eye shall see Him."

HE HIMSELF SAID "IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION of those days," which we're now suffering, "shall the sun be darkened and the moon shall not give her light and the stars will fall from heaven, the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: and then," then only, "shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven," after , mind you, the tribulation of these days, not before; "then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory." Hallelujah! Not a sneaky return, but triumphant return!

"HE SHALL SEND HIS ANGELS WITH A GREAT SOUND OF A TRUMPET, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from the one end of the heaven to the other." Praise God! Truly He shall gather us together, and we are waiting for that coming any day now. We have borne our testimony, and have been made white, we have witnessed and are being purified. We are being prepared.

WE HAVE GOTTEN BACK TO THE POWER AND THE PURPOSE AND THE PLAN OF THE EARLY CHURCH at His first coming.--In suffering, persecution, and in worship, even in secret, and spreading the gospel at pain of death, and we have also gotten back to their power. Thank God! How could they have been so blind?

HOW COULD THOSE COMPLACENT CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN SO BLIND AND SO DEAF to His Word? Surely they did not know His Word. Surely they are false prophets of peace, and their desire for relief and escape from all of this had deceived them.

SURELY THE PROPHET DANIEL HAD MADE IT PLAIN ENOUGH when he spoke of that little horn, that terrible Antichrist horn, that was to rise and make war with the saints and prevail against them.

HE SAID THAT THE ANTICHRIST SHOULD "SPEAK GREAT WORDS AGAINST THE MOST HIGH and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws; and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time."

IT VERY PLAINLY SAID THAT THIS ANTICHRIST COMETH THAT WOULD MAKE WAR WITH GOD'S SAINTS AND PREVAIL--actually overcome them! Satan would actually overcome them, at least physically as it seemed, and that he would wear out the saints. Who did they think these saints were, anyhow? Who were these saints? There are no other "saints"!--They're just the saints of God!

THERE'S ONLY ONE CHURCH, the called-out church of God. They are the saints, the separated ones, the Ecclesia of God, the separated, gathered-out ones, called-out ones. Who else could be saints except those that are saved, the true born-again believer whose Saviour is Jesus Christ!

HOW PLAIN HE HAD MADE IT TO DANIEL, CONCERNING THE SUFFERING of his own Jewish people when he spake of it, "at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time,"--What time?

"AT THAT TIME OF TROUBLE!--THY PEOPLE SHALL BE DELIVERED,"--Not before that time, but at the time of trouble--"everyone that shall be found written in the Book."--Who else is found written in the Book except the church of God, the saints of God, the true born--again believers, not rescued before, but at that time! Hallelujah!

"AND MANY OF THEM THAT SLEEP IN THE DUST of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament: and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever." Amen and Amen, thank God! Thank God for this suffering! Thank God for this persecution. (Continued in part II)
