"Clarion Call to Avert West Coast Disaster"

by Burdell Austin, Steve Shultz
Apr 13, 2005

April 13, 2005


Some don't know that, besides the publisher of the ELIJAH LIST, I am Burdell Austin's (who writes this article) Washington State USSPN Coordinator's counterpart for Oregon. I'm the USSPN Prayer Coordinator for Oregon. Between Burdell Austin and myself (Lisa Doyle helps me on the Oregon USSPN list), we cover HALF of the West Coast as far as calls to prayer.

Note that the items we are posting today represent calls to pray for prophetic revolution to take place on both the West and East Coasts of the USA.

Burdell and I believe a national response is needed. Please take this call to intercede very seriously,

Steve Shultz

Clarion Call to Avert West Coast Disaster

For several years many of you have been getting words of warning, dreams, and visions of an earthquake and tsunami in this region [U.S. West Coast]. I join many who sense it is time to mobilize an army of worshiping warriors, who will go before the Lord in humility for those sins committed on the land that give legal right to the adversary to perform acts of violence. As we hear from the Lord regarding specific repentance needed to cleanse the land, we will then have the blood-bought authority of the name of Jesus Christ to declare the very earth itself redeemed, no longer under the curse.

I believe that it is the adversary's desire to "steal the vineyard." He knows what the Lord has said regarding the West. We are on the verge of an unprecedented move of God that will release the message that the Kingdom of God is indeed at hand, and signs and wonders will follow.

The last thing that Dutch Sheets said at the 50 State Tour gathering in Everett, Washington in December of 2003 was, "Washington is shifting into a new season. You are pregnant with something new: a fresh revelation of Christ, a fresh ability to present Him. He is going to break out in your midst in a new way and be conceived in you. Begin to pray that Jesus is coming to the church of Washington and you are going to conceive the fullness of Christ. You are going to be able to minister Christ to the world."

What Prophets Are Saying Today Regarding a West Coast Disaster

The following is a taste of what prophets are saying today regarding this issue:

Here is part of the February Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders Word of the Lord for 2005, posted by Chuck Pierce (

"We are in a season of shakings. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken. There will be continued physical disasters where the plates of the earth will shift. In the midst of these shakings, God will rise up regional apostles and prophets who will be able to issue decrees, and then see the natural disasters stop or be lessened in their city or region."

Also, here is a portion of Paul Keith Davis' write up on his March 2005 Fireside Chat with Bob Jones (

"In a dream Bob was shown a potential calamity along the West Coast that could have a very damaging effect. It was something to do with the shifting of the plates within the earth creating a separation of land mass. The admonition in the revelation was to mobilize the Church in prayer so that this could either be eliminated or substantially reduced in its impact. A specific time frame was not given in the dream, but it seemed to imply that it was something imminent. Much prayer has already ascended from the West Coast for a day of visitation. We feel this would be very damaging for many people if it should occur, and a distraction from the birthing of God's purposes in California."

On March 15, 2005, Barbara Steely of Wailing Women Ministries in Washington State posted a CALL TO PRAYER AND INVITATION TO GATHER APRIL 15-16, 2005 IN ASTORIA, OREGON ( She says:

"God is speaking to many about a catastrophe or shaking of the West Coast and calling for prayer. If I mourned when I failed the call Jesus gave me to cry aloud and call forth the intercessors before the Indonesia tsunami, I mourn now as Jeremiah was instructed to do . . . 'Call forth the wailing women . . . ' These professional women were hired to follow the death and funerals of the deceased, but God told Jeremiah to call them BEFORE the deaths occurred and instructed them to weep and wail. The Lord has directed us to pray on the Washington and Northern Oregon coast in the past, in a building of a Wall of Worship. He is now expanding that call from the Aleutian Islands to Southern California."

How Prayer Can Avert Disaster

On April 13, 1999 a team of intercessors traveled via ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria, B.C. Canada to partner in prayer on Holocaust Remembrance Day. Halfway across the Strait of Juan de Fuca the Lord directed prayer for two specific things:

  1. That every military and terrorist attack that would come through those waters would be exposed.
  2. That our adversary would not use the Juan de Fuca fault for death and destruction.

On December 14, 1999 an Algerian with ties to Islamic terrorists was caught departing the ferry at Port Angeles. Read the complete story at

It should be noted that April 13, 1999 was the 50th anniversary of a 7.1 magnitude earthquake. It was centered deep beneath the surface and within the subducted Juan de Fuca plate under the North American plate. This 1949 earthquake was the largest recorded earthquake in Puget Sound. It affected all of Washington, NW Oregon, SW British Columbia, Northern Idaho, and NW Montana.

Other large earthquakes have occurred late February to mid April on the West Coast:

  • April 18, 1906: 8.2 M San Francisco, California
  • April 1, 1946: 8.6 Aleutian Islands, Alaska
  • March 27, 1964: 9.2 M Prince William Sound, Alaska
  • April 29, 1965: 6.5 M Seattle, Washington
  • February 28, 2001: 6.8 M NE Olympia, Washington

The February 2001 earthquake was also caused by the bending of the Juan de Fuca plate. The earthquake was felt as far away as Salt Lake City. This earthquake was located in the same general area as the earthquake on April 13, 1949. But, scientists, and prophets as well, are warning of an earthquake/tsunami caused by the Juan de Fuca Plate at the same magnitude of the 9.0 Sumatra, Indonesia disaster that occurred on December 26, 2004.

Last February, a USSPN Washington Regional Coordinator was present during a report given by an international lawyer from Singapore, Thio Su Mien (Su), who is gifted in prophetic intercession and healing. She shared about some of the things going on in the area of Indonesia before the tsunami.

She explained how the SARS virus hit Singapore a year prior to the earthquake/tsunami. The Lord alerted the intercessors and told them that if they did not get on their faces and repent on behalf of their nation's involvement in abortion as the contraceptive of choice, that the land would suffer from His hand of judgment.

Because they saw how devastating the SARS virus had been, the intercessors immediately took action to seek His mercy and forgiveness. Singapore was not touched by the earthquake disaster. The Malaysian intercessors joined them in diligent prayer and also opened healing rooms in Kuala Lampur. The area on the Northern Coast of Malaysia was hit hard. There are amazing stories of God's grace and mercy in saving souls and lives there.

It was the prayers of the intercessors that had saved the disaster from affecting an even larger area. She emphasized that the intercessors crying out with repentance and asking for mercy, along with declarations of the Word of God over the land (both written and rhema), released the curse upon the land and the people were spared. It was a plea for intercessors to step up to the plate and continue to press into God for mercy from judgment coming.

Understanding the Times in the Spirit

In a recent teaching titled UNDERSTANDING THE TIMES, Arthur Burk states:

"It is my belief that the tsunami that struck right after Christmas was a blood sacrifice orchestrated by the enemy to gain power to stop the birthing that God wanted. I see it as being empowered by Leviathan, the spirit in the water. It produced massive death which empowered him. It ripped families apart, which is the opposite of the anointing that God had intended . . . There was a staggering loss of capital, the income-producing infrastructure of the wealthiest regions was destroyed and, by the way, [the redemptive gift of] the nation of Indonesia is the gift of giving." (

Martha Lucia of Watchman Ministries posted a prayer initiative April 1, 2005. It references an article from the Jerusalem Post, in which it addresses research published by Palestinian scholar Ziad Silwadi regarding various verses in the Koran which predict that the US will be hit by a tsunami larger than that which recently struck southeast Asia.

"The tsunami waves are a minor rehearsal in comparison with what awaits the US in 2007," the researcher concluded in his study. "The Holy Koran warns against the Omnipotent Allah's force. A great sin will cause a huge flood in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans."

"The study has caught the attention of millions of Muslims worldwide who pray in agreement with the predicted destruction of the US. Silwadi said his study of the Koran showed that the US would perish mainly because of its great sins against mankind, including the Native Americans and African Americans. Martha says, "God help us to become a righteous nation and to condemn these cursing words spoken against this nation, according to Isaiah 54:17."

Understanding the Times in the Natural

The recent Sumatra quake and all of the activity in the Juan de Fuca plate, which is only 250 miles off the west coast, and 700 miles long, should be a wake up call. Prophetic warnings should be coupled with factual information so that intercessors can pray on site with insight. A GREAT RESOURCE for the Juan de Fuca plate/Cascadia Subduction Zone is the DVD CASCADIA: THE HIDDEN FIRE, produced by Michael Lienau ( and, who produced the first George Otis, Jr. Transformation video, available at The Elijah List below.

Michael is offering this through The Elijah List to intercessors who have a burden to pray for this important focus.

Michael is also working with spiritual leaders initiating faith-based disaster training. He and Patrick Hamman, the Redmond City Chaplain (, are networking with churches in King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties. They are purchasing Cascadia and are giving them to participants through city grants. Michael and Pat are also working on training city employees with the DVDs and developing a web-based interactive training website.

This DVD will also be available at
April 15-16, 2005 in Astoria, Oregon.

Mark Acuna of Antioch House and Barbara Steely of Wailing Women, who says:

"A prophetic cry to prayer is occurring up and down the west coast of the United States. Many have seen natural and spiritual events happening in the near future. We agree together and ask God for His mercy and will to be done. We also respond to His call to pray and agree with each other in this task. This is just one gathering for prayer and strategy, but we know they are happening from Alaska to California. Our hope is to coordinate a prayer effort together for the west coast."

Barbara has been flooded with input from those of you who have been hearing from the Lord regarding a great shaking and wave coming. Some address more of a spiritual impact than natural. This is a real possibility. Lisa Knorr of Global Net Productions sent me the following:

In John Nance's 1988 book, "On Shaky Ground," he describes what happened at one church when the earthquake struck during the 1964 Alaska earthquake. "At All Saints Episcopal Church, Father Norm Elliot reached the twelfth State of the Cross in the Good Friday services. The last quotation from Matthew was in front of him now as he read the familiar words: 'But Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up His spirit. And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were rent.'"

It was exactly thirty-five seconds past 5:36 p.m. Father Norm Elliot felt the first waves shudder through his church as he read the line, " . . . and the rocks were rent."

Interesting to note that four years prior, on April 3, 1960, Dennis Bennett preached a sermon on the underground Pentecostal Movement that was quietly racing through so many churches in America. He told about how he, himself, had spoken in tongues. Instantly, an explosion went off in his Episcopal Church. The story was later carried in the local newspapers, various wire services picked it up, and the news swept the country.

Prayer and Fasting

During an on site prayer strategy in Seattle last weekend, the Lord gave a 10 DAY PRAYER FOCUS. You can start April 15 through Passover, April 24. Or you can use it after the prayer and fasting focus 21 DAYS TO BREAK THE POWER OF CAPTIVITY Chuck Pierce has just released (if you missed reading this, you can read it on The Elijah List at: ). This is great for individual victory over strongholds in our lives that may influence our ability to move in the authority Jesus Christ purchased for us. Another good 10-day time frame is May 5-15, 2005, which is the NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER through the GLOBAL DAY OF PRAYER.

Timothy Snodgrass posted a 40-day fast for April 8-May 18, 2005 for the South Pacific, and for inhabitants of the Pacific coastal regions from Alaska to Argentina, and from New Zealand to the Aleutian Islands.
Timothy states:

"Every major prophetic warning is followed by major signs, which have the signature of God, easy to recognize if you examine the pattern of events. Pope John Paul II was born during an eclipse on May 18, 1920 (look at the date: May 18). Only God knew in advance that Pope John Paul would be buried in Rome 84 years later, during a total solar eclipse on April 8, 2005, the beginning of the 40-day fast. Think about that for a minute: On the very day this 40-day fast was called months in advance, not only did skies darken across the South Pacific from a total eclipse, but flags were lowered around the world at half-stance from the death of John Paul II.

"This 40-day fast will end on John Paul's birthday, May 18 (Washington residents will of course recognize that date as being the anniversary of the eruption of Mt. Saint Helens). If you look closely at this pattern of events, you can only come to one conclusion: the signature of God on the fast is clearly evident, and the warning for the South Pacific is chillingly valid and time-sensitive."

"Cascadia: The Hidden Fire"
by Michael Lienau
$29.95 DVD Documentary
$24.95 VHS Documentary
Flying glass and bricks, buckling roads and freeways, crippled airports, nearly 500 people injured and two billion dollars worth of damage . . . the 6.8 magnitude Nisqually earthquake literally shocked the entire Pacific Northwest region on February 28, 2001. But while damaging, this earthquake is just part of a dangerous seismic triple threat facing the region.

Nearly two decades of research reveal that the area will experience earthquakes as large as humans have ever witnessed. Dozens of lethal shallow crustal faults lie just underneath major cities like Seattle and Portland and could cause catastrophic damage.

A massive magnitude 9.0 subduction zone earthquake also could wreak havoc up and down the 700–mile Cascadia coast from Southern British Columbia to Northern California. The shaking would last two to four minutes and cause major damage to the entire coastal infrastructure.

Like a true detective story, Cascadia's tale contains twists and turns that have sent world-class scientists scrambling around the globe to understand and piece together dramatic new evidence. From the bottom of the ocean to high tech satellites; from historic and revealing clues in Alaska and Japan; to colorful and illuminating Native American stories; Cascadia uncovers a hidden and dangerous story. Eyewitness accounts from survivors of Alaska's great 1964 earthquake and tsunami provide a human dimension and clear warning, while breathtaking cinematography and state-of-the-art animation reveal the hidden danger.

CASCADIA: THE HIDDEN FIRE (56 minutes) is the riveting story of scientists and ordinary people caught in extraordinary seismic events and discoveries around the globe. And what these seismic detectives are learning about Cascadia will ultimately benefit the two billion people that live in super-quake prone areas along the Pacific Rim known as the Ring of Fire.

"Praying for America"
How Your Prayers Can Change the Course of a Nation

by Dutch Sheets
$7.99 Book
America! A new day is upon us, and we will never be the same.

We have awakened to a new world and embarked on a new course -- filled with a renewed spirit of unity. But what does the future hold? Will we be led by our passions or led by our God?

More than ever, more of our citizens are praying to God for protection, for guidance, for wisdom, for His will to be done on Earth as it is in heaven. Dutch Sheets' plea that America return to its roots and become a country that trusts in God and fears no one but God Himself is as timely as it is timeless.

In Praying for America, this national prayer leader and best-selling author exhorts the Church to remain watchful -- to discern what God is saying to the Church and learn what His plans are for our families, our cities, and the land we love.

With the countries of the world behind us, we stand united, patriotic, and humbled as a nation, ready to confront our future. Our spirit will not be broken; we shall overcome. As we cry out to God for our future -- and the future of our children -- may God bless America once again!
