----Grandmother's Amazing Prophecy of 1965!
Virginia Berg's Warning Tract Turn your eyes toward Memphis
An artist's rendition of the "Warning Tract"
Note from Webmaster: This is a prophecy that David Berg's mother, Virginia Brandt Berg, received in 1965. I, the Deep Truths webmaster, personally verified the numerology in the last paragraph of the teacher's comments, namely, that the original prophecy (stated below without edits) contains exactly 560 letters (7 X 80), and that it has exactly 128 words or 2 to the power of 7. Using the Linux / Unix "WC" (Word Count) command, WC reported exactly 128 words, and after removing all the punctuation marks and spaces from the original unedited prophecy, WC reported 560 letters. If you are a Linux / UNIX user, you might appreciate the command line result below. "warning.txt" is the unedited prophecy, and "warning-2.txt" is the prophecy with all the spaces between the words and punctuation marks removed.
[jamesjp@phenom9600e ~]$ wc -w warning.txt
128 warning.txt

[jamesjp@phenom9600e ~]$ wc -m warning-2.txt
560 warning-2.txt
I used the html "ol" tag to show there are indeed 7 sentences when the phrase "be prepared" is included in them. I took away the bold font from the original Family tract and removed the word in parentheses (Egypt) after the word "Memphis" because I think this is subject to interpretation. Could not this "Memphis" be possibly referring to Memphis Tennessee USA? From what I heard about Memphis Tennessee being rife with the Occult, I would not be surprised.

It's amazing to me that Joel Wordsworth (I think it was probably him) did this research probably without the benefit of a computer circa 1970!

Virginia Berg's unedited prophecy showing the line numbers.

  1. "Turn your eyes toward Memphis, for out of it shall come the great confusion!
  2. The author of Confusion is even now marshalling his forces for this Great Confusion!
  3. He is gathering his forces from a great nation and Eastern nations, friends that will join with him.
  4. So sudden will be the Great Confusion, that it will cause a mighty widening of the eyes of those who have not discerned the signs of the times.
  5. But be ye not deceived!
  6. Be prepared!! And be not deceived by the Great Society, for it will come to travail and then bring forth the Great Confusion! Be prepared!
  7. Even now, the skies are red, red with warning, and black, black with clouds gathering for the Great Confusion which is almost upon you!"

Comments from a teacher in the early "Children of God" days about the Warning Tract:

The first paragraph of the warning tract was given to Virginia Berg by God in the middle of the night in 1965. He woke her out of a deep sleep and told her to start writing. She OBEYED, this was the result:

She was a great woman of God and not given to exalting herself spiritually by giving prophecies. In fact, it was just the opposite, because she was very reluctant to say: "Thus saith the Lord." In this case she held on to it for a month before she gave it to her family.

She was raised by a minister, and was extremely wealthy, but her faith was overthrown (2 Timothy 2:18-19) in "Bible College." She traveled the world and finally was seriously injured in an accident. (Webmaster: Her back was broken when her husband who was carrying her slipped and dropped her on a curbstone.) She laid on her back for 5 years during which time she withered away to a 70 lb. tuberculean, paralyzed skeleton, breathing and eating through a plastic tube, and every organ of her body damaged in some way. One day she called out to God, and the next thing she knew, her paralyzed arms were reaching toward heaven, and her paralyzed, emaciated body was resurrecting itself from a 5-year death sleep. She WALKED OUT of that home, and from that day (30 years old) she dedicated her life to God. Her ministry reached tens of thousands of souls from coast to coast. She had a gift of prophecy and when she prophesied it always came to pass with amazing detail (Jeremiah 28:9) She died at age 83 in 1968, and the day before, she was giving out sandwiches to the hippies, and preaching, "By their fruits ye shall know them."

The prophecy was given in 1964, and has a remarkable pattern of sevens, just like Bible Scripture.

The original prophecy (stated below without edits) contains 560 letters (7 X 80). It has 128 words or 2 to the power of 7. Only 7 of these words have eactly 7 letters. It has 7 main sentences when the phrase "be prepared is included in them. It contains the word "great" 7 times. The word "confusion" is used six times (man's number) and the word "Babylon" is used six time in Revelation. Babylon means "confusion in the original language!

Scriptures Compiled by David Brandt Berg in 1966 in U.S.A.

I WILL BRING A MIGHTY, AN ANCIENT NATION UPON YOU FROM AFAR, a great destruction, cities laid waste, because you have forsaken Me, refused correction and worshipped the works of your own hands. Take away your battlements for they are not the Lord's! I will turn back the weapons of war that are in your hands and I Myself will fight against you! Ye shall be removed into all kingdoms of the Earth into the hand of thine enemy. Behold! I proclaim a liberty for you: To the sword and pestilence! (Jer.4:6-7; 5:3,10,15; 21:4-5; 34:17.)

I WILL SELL YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS INTO THE HAND OF THE CHILDREN OF JUDAH, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans; you forgot God, therefore shall you return to Egypt and Memphis shall bury you! (Joel 3:8; Hos.9.)

FOR MY PEOPLE ARE GREAT, RICH AND FAT, YET JUDGE NOT THE RIGHT OF THE NEEDY. Priests rule by their means and my people love it so, saying "Peace, peace" when there is no peace. Trust not in lying words saying "the temple of the Lord's are these", for the prophets that say sword and famine shall not be in this land, shall be consumed by the same! (Jer.5:27, 28,31; 7:4; 8:11; 14:15.)

FOR IN THE BEGINNING GOD (NOT CHAOS) CREATED HEAVEN AND EARTH IN SIX DAYS (not ages), everything after its kind (set specie, not by natural selection) before it grew (not previous forms) in His image (like God, not apes) and breathed into his nostrils (fully formed but not yet alive) the breath of life, and the first man, Adam (none before) became a living soul! (Gen.1-2; 1Cor.15:45.) (Only 6000 years ago by Gen.5; 7:6; 11:10-26; 21:5; 25:26; 47:9; Ex.12:40; 1Kgs.6:1.) If it took millions of years of evolution, we'd be up to our ears in missing links and ten miles deep in population! You just can't believe both!)

HAD YE BELIEVED MOSES' WRITINGS YE WOULD HAVE BELIEVED ME. But professing yourselves to be wise you became fools, changed the truth into a lie and worshipped the creature more than the Creator, as you did not like to retain God in your education! You received not the truth, so God shall send you strong delusion that you might be damned! (Jn.5:46; Romans 1:18-28; 2Thes.2:10-12.)

THEREFORE THE RED BEAST SHALL WAX GREAT and honour the God of forces by which he shall rule over many, scatter the prey, divide the land, by peace destroy many, enter peaceably upon the fattest, forecast his devices, subdue the leading nations, the others giving their power unto him--a king of fierce countenance, mighty by Satanic power--and all the world shall worship him! He will invade Israel, plant his palace in Jerusalem, place the Abomination of Desolation (his image) in the temple, brand all who follow him, and try to kill all who refuse to worship him. (Dan.7-11; Rev.13.) (The Antichrist)

THEN SHALL BE GREAT TRIBULATION FOR 3-1/2 YEARS. He makes war with the saints and destroys Babylon (capitalistic worship-of-money religion). But the people that know God will be strong and do exploits--kept, fed and purified to the end! (Mat.24; Dan.11; Rev.12 & 17.)

FOR THE DAY OF CHRIST'S COMING SHALL NOT COME UNTIL THERE COME A FALLING AWAY FIRST, AND that Man of Sin be revealed (the Satan-possessed Anti-Christ world dictator) sitting in the temple of God claiming to be God, that Wicked one whom the Lord shall destroy with His coming! (2Thes.2:1-12.)

AFTER THE TRIBULATION THEY SHALL SEE THE SON COMING IN THE CLOUDS WITH GREAT POWER & GLORY, the dead in Christ shall rise, then we which are alive shall be caught up with them to meet the Lord! (Mat.24:27-51; 1Th.4:16.)

THEN SHALL THE WRATH OF GOD BE POURED OUT UPON THE EARTH: Sores, bloody waters, fire, darkness, Armageddon, earthquake and hail! The King of Kings (Jesus) destroys the Red Beast, sets up His throne in Jerusalem and rules the Earth with His saints 1000 years until the final destruction of the wicked at the Great White Throne Judgment. (Rev.15-20.)

THE HEAVENLY CITY, 1500 MILES SQUARE AND 1500 MILES HIGH, made of crystal gold and precious stones, comes down from God out of Heaven to a New Earth, with no night, death, tears, sorrow nor pain forever! Kings shall bring the glory of the nations into it, but only the saved shall walk in it. (Rev.21-22.)

FOR ALL HAVE SINNED, THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS--all we like sheep have gone astray, but the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all. The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is Eternal Life through Jesus Christ. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us. For by the deeds of the law shall no flesh be justified. For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Rom.3:10,20,23; 6:23; Jn.3:16; Titus 3:5; Eph.2:8,9.)

IF WE CONFESS OUR SIN HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved. As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God! If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved!--That ye may know that ye have Eternal Life! (1Jn.1:9; Acts 16:31; Jn.1:12; Rom.10:9; 1Jn.5:13.)

AND YE SHALL RECEIVE POWER AFTER THE HOLY GHOST IS COME UPON YOU, and ye shall be witnesses. Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel, heal the sick, freely give. All that believed were together and shared all things. Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added unto you. He that forsaketh not all that he hath cannot be My disciple. Everyone that hath forsaken shall received an hundredfold, with persecutions. (Acts 1:8; Mk.16:15; Mat.10:8; 6:33; 19:29; Acts 2:44; Lk.14:33; Mk.10:30.)

(THE ABOVE WAS THE VERY FIRST "MO LETTER" ever published, and distributed by the millions as "The Warning Tract". Our basic doctrines (of The Family International) have not changed over many years and are just as true today as then, as its all Bible!--And the End is closer than ever!--Are you ready?--Below we have added a Scriptural explanation of our even greater emphasis on Love!:)


MASTER, WHICH IS THE GREAT COMMANDMENT IN THE LAW? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God... and thy neighbour as thyself... on these two hang all the law and the prophets!

LOVE ONE ANOTHER: For he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For all the law is fulfilled in one word: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. The fruit of the Spirit is love... against such there is no law.--Mat.22:36-40; Rom.13:8; Gal.5:14,22,23.


BUT WHOSO HATH THIS WORLD'S GOODS (Money, clothing, housing, education, sex, etc.). and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?--1John 3:17.

LET US NOT LOVE (ONLY) IN WORD BUT IN DEED AND IN TRUTH. For God is love, but he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? 1John 3:18; 4:8,20.

"DO YOU HAVE GOD'S SPIRIT OF LOVE, JESUS, IN YOUR HEART!--Then give it away! For love wasn't put in your heart to stay; love isn't love till you give it away!--For whatsoever you do in the unselfish sacrificial love of Jesus is right and lawful and it will never fail--for Love never fails--Long Live Love!" -- Quotes from writings by David Brandt Berg

Tess and James Arendt
James & Tess Arendt

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.

If you like this website, you can show your appreciation by sending me a gift toward my support. My wife Tess and I moved from the island of Guam USA in June 2023 to the city of Allen in the province of Northern Samar, one of the poorer provinces in the Philippines. My only work is maintaining my websites, Deep Truths, and James Japan which costs me $300 per year now. And Tess is ministering to the local people giving them regular Bible Studies in three groups, children, teenagers and adults.

You may like my James Japan site as well because it covers subjects that are not covered in Deep Truths such as things like the Climate Change Hoax and the COVID-19 death-jabs.
