From the desk of Steve Shultz:
It's extremely rare for me to break a hard-and-fast rule. I simply don't post many "disaster" words.
One reason is that they've poured in by the thousands over the years and RARELY come to pass.
"Why break the rule now?" you may ask.
My answer is simple. When I receive a new word--if it's not fear-based in its presentation and if it includes named people who have developed a known name for character, accuracy, carefulness and have love for the Body of Christ as they exercise the prophetic gift within them--and if there are enough confirming words by people seeing the same thing, then I consider posting the word.
But here is your caveat...
No matter how many people suggest that a prophecy MAY be true, even if they are highly-known names, it's still up to each and every single INDIVIDUAL to discern for themselves if a given word is true. This much I can guarantee you...
1) Some of you will say this word is false from the first time you read it (not a good approach).
2) Some of you will be convinced it WILL HAPPEN from the first time you read it because of the names involved (Bob Jones, Paul Keith Davis and John Kilpatrick). (Also not the best approach.)
3) The best approach is for each person to take this to prayer, ask God and your fellow Believers and pastors who you pray with and for...what do THEY discern? Then ask yourself what YOU discern. Then, of course, you should pray either against the word or pray that if it happens and if lives are lost, they will be MINIMAL in number, because GOD LOVES MERCY.
4) Please know that by posting this, we are not saying this event WILL OCCUR for sure, and we certainly are not putting a timeframe on it.
Nevertheless, ask God what your response should be.
Start with prayer. You can't go wrong there!
Then plan to defeat the enemy at his own game, no matter what. You might choose to look at some of the resources that will teach you and show you that God is on the throne and that nothing...absolutely nothing takes HIM by surprise.
"An EARTHQUAKE VISION and DREAM of the NEW MADRID FAULT"
Prophetic Vision and Dream
John Kilpatrick was the pastor of the Brownsville revival in Pensacola. He has actually had two experiences that pointed to the possibility of something significant happening in the region related to the New Madrid fault. Naturally, it is not written from a fear-based perspective but from one of exercising wisdom and intercession in the event something is brewing in that region. I know Bob Jones saw something occurring along the same lines but had no perspective of the timing of it.
Paul Keith Davis
Pastor Kilpatrick wants to share with his partners and friends the following vision and dream he had in April and May 2008. He has never posted a vision or dream on the internet, but after talking with some close friends, intercessors, as well as those in prophetic ministry he has agreed to do so. His intentions are not to alarm the Church or the public, but to forewarn us to pray concerning what he has seen. At this time, we do not have the full revelation or meaning of this vision and dream, but know that the Lord is trying to warn us and prepare us for the days ahead. Please help us pray to the Lord concerning this matter.
Sunday, April 27, 2008 - Vision
As I was approaching the Daphne Civic Center for Sunday morning service at Church of His Presence, I had a vision which lasted for about two or three seconds. In this vision, I saw the ground buckling before me. It was so real that I actually moved aside to avoid what I was seeing. I knew immediately that it was an earthquake, and the thought crossed my mind that the damages of this earthquake could have the potential to exceed those of Hurricane Katrina of 2005. Please understand that I am not saying that the Lord told me this. It merely crossed my mind.
Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - Dream
I awoke trembling and shaking at 5:00 in the morning after having a startling dream. This was one of the three most profound dreams that I have ever had during the ministry the LORD has called me to. I feel that this dream is an addendum to the vision I had on April 27, 2008.
In this dream I saw the words "wind and water." I only saw the words but did not actually see any wind or water damage. I then found myself overlooking a river which instantly became so wide that I could no longer see either of its banks.
The dream then shifted, and I was with one of my parishioners running through what appeared to be an old abandoned school house. This empty building began to shake. The shaking was so violent and severe that it was like the bucking of a wild horse tossing us around. My teeth were clapping so hard from the impact that I tried to clench them to prevent this from happening.
In this dream I knew I was experiencing a massive earthquake. The sounds were so catastrophic that the thought crossed my mind that the devastation could likely exceed Hurricane Katrina of 2005. I did not see the devastation behind me; I only heard it. In all of my life I have never heard such catastrophic sounds. These were the scariest sounds I have ever heard.
The dream then shifted once more and concluded with two names on what appeared to be an old Spanish map. One name read Indianola and the other Europa. When I awoke, I was shaking as if I had chills and a fever. I could not stop trembling. All through the day I felt as if I had just had the dream 10 minutes ago.
This dream so shook me that my wife and I immediately went to the internet to do some research. I also contacted some close friends in the ministry and reliable intercessors concerning this dream. What we found was startling. There are towns called Indianola, IL; Europa, MO; and Indianola, MS. These towns run in a line from North to South with Europa, MO being near the middle of them. The Mississippi River runs between them with Europa, MO being by the epicenter of the New Madrid fault.
After seeing this, I believe the dream could be concerning a devastating earthquake on the New Madrid fault. Many reputable friends in ministry have felt that this dream was not to be interpreted as a spiritual dream because they felt that it has literal implications. Even now the intensity of this dream is the same.
I do not want to come across as an alarmist concerning what I saw. I also don't want to put fear in the public or the Body of Christ. However, I cannot help but feel that God gave me this as warning to prepare us for the days ahead and to pray concerning this matter.
Please know that I did not see any timeframe as to when this may happen. Please pray with me concerning this vision and dream.
