The following letter-form was brought about as a means of teaching my children the Word of God through the mail. And of course, quite naturally so, thatís the reason I begin these letters with "Dear Children" and end them with "Love Dad". So for the rest of you who participate in these weekly messages, please keep their original intended purpose in mind.
9 December, 2001
Target practice anyone? I mean just why do you figure I feel like Father Godís painting a great big old "bullís eye" on my little old body? Well it just might be because thatís exactly what Heís doing! Itís His Perfect Way of killing-off my "dead and rotting" sin-filled flesh... and thereby rebirthing it into the "Living and Growing" Spirit-filled Flesh of Jesus. In fact Paul does a pretty good job of describing how this "born-again" thing all works in II Corinthians 4:7-11: "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesusí sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh."
Now even though itís my desire to finally uncover the facts of how all this "dying and rebirthing" actually takes place inside the human body, I canít... not just yet anyway. Because you see before we can go there Iíve got to personally do a whole lot more dying through this sermonet writing. I mean you just wouldnít imagine how painful it is for me to say what Father God has given me to say, and without a doubt these next two are going to be real killers.
In fact itís in todayís sermonet of Perry Stoneís Five Tornados! ó part XII of How Do You Want Your Fire... Now Or Later? (6/25/00) ó that weíll be picking it back up where we left off in the last sermonet of The New Beginnings And Pastor Hector Saucedo! (11/25/01). Because it was in our ending statement ó Donít be fooled into believing Satanís lies. Christians cannot have it any way they want it! ó that we pretty well summed-up why Annie Gonzalez (my ex-wife) and Pastor Hector Saucedo both have a very serious problem of "rot and corruption spewing forth from their living-dead rotting bodies".
Because the bottom line to this "Living Truth" of "rot and corruption" is that if weíre not willing to obey Father Godís "each and every command" (His Will) then weíre really not going to be His adopted sons or daughters (Christians). And having said all that, what do you say we head on into Godís chosen Scripture for Evangelist Perry Stone (Matthew 11:1-14): "And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities. Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me."
Now before we finish-up with the last eight (8) verses of Godís chosen Scripture for Perry Stone, what do you say we first have a short discussion on verses one (1) through six (6)? Because it was just shortly after having been fired from The Toro Company ó for doing what God had told me to do (His Will) ó that my little old world seemed to get very dark and spooky (see The Big Snake Makes a Strike! (3/28/99)). I mean the way I had it all figured out was that God the Father was going to immediately bless me for my obedience... but that just ainít the way it turned out to be! You see I got fired for obeying the Will of God and then everybody (family and friends) seem to say that I had lost my senses! In fact it got so very dark and spooky that I really and truly wondered if they were right and I was wrong. Had I really lost my mind?
Well the answer to that one was "No, I hadnít!" And thanks be to God that it was only a short time thereafter that He opened-up this Scripture on John the Baptist just for me. Because you see in this story we find the greatest prophet of all time ó the one who personally baptized Jesus the Christ in water ó all of the sudden asking if Jesus was really the Christ. I mean how could such a great man of God, who personally witnessed the Miraculous Baptism of Jesus Christ, get so overwhelmingly confused about what had taken place? Had he lost his marbles?
No, he hadnít! What John the Baptist was experiencing was all a part of Godís Perfect Process called "dying to the flesh"... and it doesnít come without a whole lot of suffering and pain. In fact, getting back to this thing about "obeying the Will of God at all cost", the reason Baptizing John was in prison in the first place was because he spoke the Word of God concerning King Herodís wife, and he did it without compromise. Because you see, in so many words, what John said was that Herod should not be married to Herodias (his wife) because she was his niece and also the wife of his brother Philip.
Talk about calling sin a sin! Well thatís exactly what John did and it didnít even make the King or his wife any too happy. So John ends up in a cold dark dungeon, dazed and confused, wondering why he hadnít already been bailed out! I mean seeing how he was such good friends with the Son of God (Jesus) why in the round world was he still in prison? And thatís right about the time Jesus said "blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me."
You see Godís ways are not our ways, and when things donít go the way we think they should weíve got to keep on "trusting in Him" anyway... because Heís got The Plan! So now that Iíve said all that letís continue on with the Scripture: "And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kingís houses. But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: nothwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. And if we receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come."
So after having read those last few verses letís kinda like rehash the entire story. John the Baptizer was a prophet, and according to Jesus the Christ he was the greatest prophet born of woman. He was not a whimp, he was not a coward, and he boldly obeyed the Will of God Almighty by proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ... which even included getting in the face of King Herod and his wife! And it was because of that particular Word to the King and Queen that John B. got thrown into prison... and eventually beheaded.
Now to the "logical" thinking mind, which even included John the Baptist during his moment of doubt, having oneís ministry "cut short" for obeying the "Will of God" by speaking the "Word of God" just didnít make too much sense. I mean why would God Almighty allow such a powerful minister of the Gospel to waste away in prison?
Well as John the Baptist would shortly find out, he wasnít wasting away in prison but was actually finishing out his "walk" that God Almighty had designed especially for him. He was dying to his flesh, as we must all do, as directed by the One and only Almighty "Flesh Killer". John was being made ready for his heavenly journey through his earthly suffering! And it was after his two disciples returned with the very encouraging Words from his Lord and Saviour that he was able to clear-up all the confusion in his head and finish out his ministry in a grand and glorious way. Because you see what Baptizing John eventually did with the rest of his life was give King Herod one last chance to receive Jesus as his Lord and Saviour. John first witnessed to him while in prison through his life, and then he witnessed to him through his death.
And thatís right about where this "the violent take it by force" thing comes into play. Because you see "the flesh" (our flesh) doesnít "die-off" that easily. I mean itís not only a very painful process but itís also downright impossible for any of us to figure out, through our own intellect, the way in which it must be done. We must walk in faith, as directed by the Will of God through His Holy Spirit, fully trusting in the fact that Jesus has already proven out this same "Flesh Killing Process" at The Cross. Jesus overcame "the human body and sin" through His Suffering and Death on The Cross so that we might be able to do the same... and understanding how this amazing process actually takes place "in the human body" is where weíre "headed to" in this ongoing series of How Do You Want Your Fire... Now Or Later? (6/25/00)
Which brings us back to the subject at hand of Perry Stone And The Five Tornados! Because now that weíve kinda like paved the way with Godís chosen Scripture, what do you say we just get it on down with the rest of the message... by starting off with a Word from God ó as spoken by Evangelist Perry Stone in his ministry publication The Voice Of Evangelism (Web: http://www.perrystone.org):
The Five Tornados
By Perry Stone, Jr.
(As published in The Voice Of Evangelism - March/April, 1999 )
Several years have passed since I received a chilling vision that, until now, I shared only with a few people. For several years, I was uncertain what this vision meant. As information has been coming forth concerning possible events that may transpire in the near future, the vision suddenly takes on a possible prophetic meaning.
The story begins several years ago on a Sunday afternoon. That morning, I had ministered at the Brooksville Assembly of God in Brooksville, Florida. Don Channell and I were staying in the home of a church couple. That afternoon, I felt exhausted and told Don, "I must rest before church". I went to a private bedroom, opened my Bible to read and became very drowsy. I closed the Bible and lay across the bed with my face down on my Bible.
Within a matter of minutes, by the Spirit of God, I was experiencing a full color vision. Oddly enough, I knew I was having a vision. I knew I was in Brooksville lying on a bed, yet I was seeing a perfectly clear picture unfold before my eyes. I was literally part of the scene.
In the vision, I saw a straight paved road that led to the top of a hill. On either side of the road were small brick homes. For some reason I felt they were homes of retired ministers. I began walking up the hill, stepping on a sidewalk on the left side of the road. It was then that I noticed I was barefoot.
As I continued up the hill, I noticed two strange sights. At the top was a large concrete barrier, like a wall. I knew something was behind this barrier. I also noticed the sky was perfectly blue, except for one dark pillar of black (a cloud) that resembled a black tower reaching from heaven to earth. It was hitting the earth somewhere behind the barrier. I thought, "How strange! Everything looks great, but this one dark cloud is coming from heaven to earth". I decided to go to the top of the hill and investigate the scene.
After reaching the top, I climbed up on the concrete wall. To my amazement, a beautiful corn field was behind the barrier. As far as I could see to the left and right, the field stretched, filled with the most beautiful ripe corn I had ever seen. The rows were close together and the corn was ready for harvest. I could see the golden tassels on top of the stalk.
The Five Tornados
In the distance, the scene was much different. At the far edge of the field I saw five large tornados. They each were the same size and seemed to be spaced equally. To me, it seemed they were coming out of this large dark pillar.
As I observed the five Tornados, I recall seeing old fashioned power lines directly behind the tornados. Suddenly, the tornado on the left began to spin. I could hear a whooshing sound as it slowly began to gain speed. Then I saw sparks, similar to bits of lightning, coming from the first tornado. That is when I knew what was going to happen.
I sensed that soon, the first tornado would rip through the corn field and take out a row of precious grain. By the time this tornado would reach the barrier, the second would rip a row of grain out, followed by a third, a forth, and finally the fifth tornado. I knew that when the fifth tornado hit, it would conclude this strange storm.
I recall jumping off the concrete barrier, running down the hill and shouting, "I must get into the cleft of the rock. The storms are coming, and I must get into the cleft of the rock!"
Suddenly, I came to myself. My heart was pounding and my spirit was weeping. I jumped off the bed and knocked on the door of Don Channell. I began telling him about the vision. Don and I were not certain of the meaning, but the vision has stayed with me for the last three years.
Six Months Later
About six months later I had a night dream that I believed to be related to the vision of the five tornados.
In the dream, I was standing in the inner city of some great metropolis and heard people saying, "The storm is coming. We must find shelter and protection". I led the people into the basement of a large, old church. The church building was built from the large granite blocks that many of the historic downtown churches are made of. I saw people from various ethnic groups - Black, Hispanic and Asian. People were huddled together with their particular ethnic group. They were all frightened and cold, holding on to each other. Great fear gripped each person. Suddenly, a huge tornado hit the building. The church began to shake, but did not collapse. I noticed there was no doors in the church (because Jesus is the door).
I could see these large tornados, five in all, as each one roared by and struck the church. I could hear the pounding of rain and hail as it beat against the outside of the building.
After the fifth tornado passed by, there was a calm. Everyone went outside to inspect the damage. As we left the church basement, I saw several piles of different items. Some piles contained canned food. Others contained clothing. There were even piles of small toys for children. Some of the people began to run for cans of food, while several others rummaged through the clothes and still others were seeking a toy for their small child. It is what I saw at that moment that confounded and amazed me.
As the scene changed, I could clearly see the skyline of a large city, complete with tall skyscrapers. I looked for structural damage and found that the damage was not to the exterior of the buildings, but to the inside of the buildings instead. Still, not every building was affected. Some looked perfectly normal. Others seemed to have taken a harder hit. In one glass building, I noticed that the file cabinets were opened and papers were all over the floor. It seemed confusion had hit this office. Yet, two other buildings across from this damaged building appeared to have come through the storm without any major damage.
Afterwards, I distinctly recall standing in front of a church. I looked on the ground and saw where a beautiful string of large gray-black pearls had been broken. Somehow, these storms had affected my pearls and I was now putting them back together again! Then I awoke. I wrote down the dream and compared the second part of the dream to the part about the five tornados. I believed both were one dream from two different points of view.
Lack Of Understanding
For quite some time I did not understand the possible meaning of the dream and vision. I knew storms represented sudden trouble, but why did they take out rows of corn? Was the corn literal food, or did it represent the end-time harvest or both?
I began to believe it represented five storms in the ministry. Could it be that five people close to me would pass away? If this was the meaning, why did I see the retired ministerís homes and what did other ethnic groups from the inner city have to do with the death of family members?
I shared these dreams with a few people. No one, including me, had any clue as to the possible meaning of this vision and dream, although I knew they both spoke of the same event from a different perspective.
Early in 1998, while reading a book on Y2K, something struck me. I learned that some specialist believe that, beginning on January of 2000, it will take about five months to actually get all computer systems up and running and back to business as usual on a worldwide level. When I read "five months", my mind went back to the vision and dream. For the first time, the events made sense in the light of what I had learned.
Interpreting The Vision
Letís go back to the vision. In the vision, I was barefoot. Since your feet are to be "shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace", this could mean not being fully prepared for the storms. The one tall cloud in the field that looked like a tower could represent computer towers. Inside these towers is where the main problem - the language problem - is located. The five tornados might represent five areas that could be affected by a world-wide computer problem. However, they could also represent five weeks or five months of one problem after another.
Often, a field of corn in the Bible represents the harvest of souls or can allude to the world as a whole. The corn could literally symbolize food, as well. Could the meaning of the vision be that five storms, borne out of one large storm, will temporarily affect 5 different things on the world scene? The five tornados could represent five weeks or even five months, because the tornados were of the same height and spaced the same distance apart.
What About The Dream
The dream speaks for itself. Many of the poor people in the large cities were turning to the church for their protection, shelter and help. Again, there were five tornados that could allude to five weeks or five months of literal storms or difficulty, until the problems begin to settle. The fact that certain buildings were hit inside and others were not, may reveal that certain business will not be as adversely affected as others when these series of storms hit.
The pearls were mine personally and, I believe, may represent "the pearl of great price". In the parable, this pearl alludes to the preaching of the gospel. It appears the Lord has given us a warning that a series of storms may affect our ministry for a period of time.
Whatever the interpretation of this vision and dream are, we must be "hidden in Christ". Both Moses and Elijah hid themselves in the "cleft of the rock". Whenever spiritual or natural storms hit, we must know who we are in Christ and be determined to stay hidden in Him.
Could the vision and the dream allude to the disruptions and hindrances of the Y2K problems? If a person tries to keep up with the information concerning what is fixed and what is not, it gets totally confusing. America is supposed to have 90% of its major systems fixed, yet a recent report revealed that 50% of small businesses are doing nothing. Then there is the global link. If other nations are not fixed, how will this affect imports and exports? If the major oil exporting nations in the Middle East are six months to two years behind, where does that leave the oil and gas?
If these dreams do not allude to five weeks or five months of problems because of Y2K, then I am sure that, in time, God will reveal the true meaning of the storms. Let us be in prayer!
Now, what youíve just read (emphasis added through the leading of the Holy Spirit) came to me in the mail during the early part of 1999. However, at that time I did not understand itís meaning nor did I have any earthly idea that the Lord would use me, almost three years later, to interpret this prophetic Word for Perry Stone. In fact, as I have said so many times before, I sorta like walked into this thing "blind-folded" ó saying what the Lord told me to say, when He told me to say it, but yet not having the foggiest idea where we were headed with what I had said ó until the Lord finally uncovered my eyes and showed me The Big Picture.
I mean when it comes to my writing abilities, the thoughts that I put down on paper are not my own but the Holy Spiritís. In fact it was in the sermonet My Prodigal Daughter! (9/13/98) that the Good Lord made it abundantly clear that no matter how much effort I might put into writing, if He doesnít Personally give me the thoughts then it just ainít a gonna get written!
And having said all that, weíre now ready for the first e-mail that the Lord instructed me to write to Brother Stone:

Subject: Apostate Pope
Dear Brother Stone,
I've just received your information on Unlocking The Book Of Revelation, and once again I see that familiar term apostate Pope. In fact I believe it was in The Apparitions Of Mary that I first heard you use the term. That was a great tape and I even shared it with a few Catholics. Now the question I have for you is "aren't any and all who are truly sold out to the Catholic (pagan) religion apostate?"
Thanks for your reply.
In the Lord,
That was my first question to Brother Stone ó as directed by God the Father through His Holy Spirit ó and the following was his reply:
From: Perry Stone
To: Bruce Hallman

Thank you for your recent e-mail. I agree with your comment on the system being "apostate", yet in teaching on a series (for TV), I try to break in the information slowly, because often people get too over loaded with information.
...Which was shortly thereafter followed up ó as directed by God the Father through His Holy Spirit ó by the following e-mail back to Brother Stone:
Sent: Saturday, April 15, 2000 4:27 PM
Subject: Re: Apostate Pope
Dear Brother Stone,
I realize you are a very busy person, but please allow me a few minutes to share with you what's on my heart.
I purchased your last two "annual prophecy series" under a very strong command from the Lord. I didn't feel I had the money but He said "just do it!" And since that time I've grown very fond of your teaching. In fact I think so much of your ministry that it was just recently that I decided to become one of your regular supporters. That was what I wanted to do but the Lord said "no!" So why in the world wouldn't the Lord want me to support you in your ministry efforts?
Well I certainly don't have all the answers. In fact I can only go on what information the Lord sees fit to give me. So taking a look at what I do know, God the Father has whole heartedly instructed me to support the Jimmy Swaggart Ministries. And just in case you weren't able to see through all the smoke, it was shortly before his fall that Jimmy made a commitment to preach the truth about religions... and he made that commitment regardless of the consequences. And of course it was the very powerful Roman Catholic Church that was the number one religious system on his hit list.
I mean it's truly amazing how destructive a religious system can be when it really gets angry. But regardless of how much destruction was done within his ministry, it was all allowed by God to make the Jimmy Swaggart Ministries a more lean and mean preaching machine. So you see not only did Brother Jimmy get out a message that resulted in many lost and dying Catholics being saved, but it likewise made his ministry more pure in Christ (refined). It's called going through the fire.
You see I'm very grateful for Jimmy Swaggart because it was only through his Spirit-filled preaching that I was likewise rescued from a Hell-bound religious system (the United Methodist Church) [see sermonet Homosexuals In The Church: Fact Or Fiction? (12/14/97)]. I found the Lord, and slowly but surely got rid of a religion. And since that time the Lord's even called me to deliver a few messages to the likes of Pat Robertson [see sermonet CBNís Pat Robertson Is Not Saved! (11/11/01)], Rich DeVos (Amway) [see sermonet series The Sin Of Amway! (1/24/99)], Charles Stanley [see sermonet Charles Stanley: In Touch Or Out Of Touch? (1/3/99)], Ken Melrose (CEO of Toro) [see sermonet series The Snakes In Toro! (11/8/98)], and Benny Hinn [see sermonet series Benny Hinn And The Pope! (2/20/00)].
In fact it was after writing this last message to Brother Benny that I heard you mention on your tape series "Secrets To Financial Blessing In The Coming Millennium" about your base guitarist playing for the Benny Hinn Ministries. And even though I realize it's a crazy thing to ask, would you at least ask him to pray about hand delivering this message to Brother Benny. You see I've not only sent Brother Benny and his wife a copy, but also those who've actively taken a part in his ministry (Paul Crouch, Jerry Falwell, Jesse Duplantis, and Oral Roberts). And I know it's sad to say, but it was just as I expected that no one has bothered to reply.
Now as for the contents of the letter, it was during a very severe time of testing in our family that the Lord gave my 11 year old son, my 13 year old daughter, and myself the Scriptures that would later be used to compose it. Three different (and very innocent might I add) people received a total of five Scriptures that would later be used to help Brother Benny see the light.
So please pray about giving this message to your guitarist. I'll be glad to send him a copy of the letter if he's inspired by the Lord to deliver it. In the meantime it can be viewed on the Web at http://www.fmh-child.org under the heading of "Sermonet Of The Week: Benny Hinn And The Pope!"
Your ministry has been greatly blessed for a very special reason. I'll continue praying that God will give you the courage to boldly preach the message He's put on your heart.
In the Lord,
Now that was one more Word from the Lord! And that very powerful e-mail to Brother Stone was followed up one month later ó as directed by God the Father through His Holy Spirit ó with this one:
Sent: Sunday, May 14, 2000 11:05 AM
Dear Brother Stone,
The Lord continues to encourage me to minister to the Catholics though our FMHCCI sermonets (this week's message: ...And Benny Hinn Says The Catholics Are Saved?). In fact it was only last night that He had me watch The Apparitions Of Mary just one more time. And would you believe that as I was shutting down the computer for the night I saw this news flash about the pope and Fadima (http://www.msnbc.com/msn/407150.asp).
Thought I'd send it on to you just in case you haven't seen it yet. Thanks so much for all the information you've presented in your tapes.
And just one more thing. Have you heard that Jack Van Impe threw his hat in the ring in support of the Catholic Church and their doctrines? Hear it for yourself on his Program 0016 - Aired April 16, 2000 at http://lightsource.broadcast.com/lightsource/content/jack_van_impe_rexella/archive.asp
In the Lord,
Now, mysteriously enough, within the context of those four (4) little old e-mails youíll find Godís interpretation of Perry Stoneís "Five Tornados"... and all weíve got to do is just dig it all out. In fact, just to make it easier for those Web Site viewers who want all the nitty gritty details, the "sermonet links" were added in the April the15th e-mail beside the names of all those very important people who the Lordís had us to write about. And just why do you suppose the Lordís had us write sermonets on all these folks?
Well I guess the best answer for that question can be found in our sermonet Snake Handling #101! (3/7/99). Because you see one of our jobs in the FMHCCI ministry is to expose the snakes in the lives of very important people so that the snakes donít end up destroying the very important people. Father God loves them very much, but seeing how He sometimes has a very hard time getting through to them He sends us in to help. And of course itís through Godís Holy Spirit that weíre not only led to these very important people but weíre also given the Word to say that sorta like brings out the snakes from their hiding places. Comprendo?
So now that we all understand the reason for this sermonet, itís time to get back to Perry Stone and "The Five Tornados"... which takes us on into his second publication on the same subject:
The Attack On America - Did The Vision Come To Pass?
By Perry Stone, Jr.
(As published in The Voice Of Evangelism - September/October, 2001 )
Recent events reveal the possibility of a radical Islamic leader enthroning himself on the pedestal of world domination. The Antichrist will be a man of war and entire nations will be unable to defeat his armies. How will America and Israel, with such modern military technology and massive weapons, permit one man to have such control? I believe the answer is terrorism.
Since 1948, the nation of Israel has learned to survive through technology. The military has researched and developed weapons of which their enemies are unaware. At the same time, rouge nations are hiring former Soviet Union nuclear and biological scientist to develop their own arsenal.
America has some of the finest intelligence resources and tools to prevent terrorist attacks, yet on September 11, 2001, the nation was shocked by the reality of middle eastern style terrorism.
The Vision of the Five Tornadoes
The story begins several years ago on a Sunday afternoon. I was ministering at the Brooksville Assembly of God in Brooksville, Florida. My colleague, Don Channell, and I were staying in the home of friends. Exhausted from the morning service, I went to the bedroom and laid down across the bed. Immediately, I became drowsy and everything went black. Instantly, I entered the realm of the Spirit and began experiencing a full color, three dimensional vision. I knew I was having this experience and was fully aware of where I was and the fact that I was laying on the bed experiencing this event.
In the vision I was walking on a straight paved road that was leading to the top of a hill. On the left and right sides of the road were small, lovely houses. For some reason, I assumed they were the homes of retired ministers.
At the top of the hill was a large concrete barrier, a wall about four feet high. I could see above the wall and clearly observed that the sky was a clear blue with no clouds anywhere. Suddenly I saw the upper part of a dark object that appeared to be the top of a building, yet I saw no windows. It was as though it were shrouded in a black colored cloud.
As I stood upon the concrete wall, the homes were now behind me and a beautiful huge corn field was in front of me. The corn was ripe and perfect and stretched as far as the eye could see from the left to the right. To my amazement at the edge of the field, directly in the center, was a large black object that immediately reminded me of the World Trade Center. It stretched from the ground high into the sky. It was long and square at the top.(See enclosed picture) There were exactly five tornadoes that were forming to the left, the right, and the center of this large towering building. The tornadoes were of equal height and spaced apart at equal distance. I thought, "This is strange. It is a clear day, yet a black object is producing five tornadoes on a clear day!"
I stood and watched as the tornado on the left began to make a whooshing sound, emitting sparks and debris, and beginning to gain speed. The movement of the first tornado set the second one in motion. The second set the third, the third set the fourth and the forth set the fifth in motion.
I suddenly had a feeling that the first tornado would rip out a row of the corn, followed by a second and so forth. I knew these five tornados would come in succession, one after the other, each storm ripping out of the field a row of corn. I also sensed that the concrete barrier would stop the storms from hitting the homes directly behind me.
Get to the Rock
When I saw the first tornado spinning with the red sparks, I immediately jumped from the concrete wall and ran down the hill. As I was running at full speed, I recall saying out loud, "I must get to the cleft of the rock. The storms are coming and I must get to the cleft of the rock!"
I was reminded that the Lord instructed Moses to come up to the cleft of the rock.
At that moment, I was removed from the vision and came to myself lying with my face upon my Bible. Trembling inside, I jumped from the bed, ran down the hall to Don Channellís room and told him about the vision in detail. We were both greatly perplexed and uncertain of the meaning. From that moment on, when I would share the vision I would tell people that the blackened tower reminded me of the World Trade Center. I first began to tell people I thought something would happen to the World Trade Center that would impact the world.
Don and I discussed the possible meaning of this vision. We knew that the field could represent food, the harvest, or even the world itself. A tornado is sudden, swift and often levels all buildings it encounters. We knew these storms would be spaced at equal lengths and the number five was connected to them. They would spin off a large, black colored building.
What Did It Mean?
After sharing with certain audiences the impact of this vision and the uncertainty of its interpretation, I recall showing a computer programmer the artistís rendition of the five storms and the dark tower. He said, "Perry, the tower looks very much like an old computer mainframe. Perhaps this is a warning about the year 2000." At the time I told him, "It looks so much like the World Trade Center, but perhaps you are right." As a result of our conversation, I began to accept the idea that the "tower" could allude to an older main frame.
During a televised prophetic conference in February 1999, I showed the artistís rendition of the five tornadoes, along with two sketches of inner city people in church buildings huddled together in fear and some in prayer, as these storms blew through the city. I remember exercising caution and stating that I was unsure of the actual meaning of the vision, but felt it was from God and would happen in the future. (Portions of the actual 1999 conference where I spoke this are on the special video tape we are offering this month).
After nothing significant happened in the year 2000, I put the vision on the back burner and said, "One day we will know what it means." On September 7, 2001, I found the drawings in my office closet. I carried the pictures into the Manna Fest room and commented to Mel Colbeck, "Iím not sure what this vision means because it hasnít happened, but I believe this dark tower is the World Trade Center and it will be hit somewhere down the road."
The Interpretation of the Vision
On the morning of September 11, 2001, I was preparing for a meeting when an office staff member said, "A plane has just crashed into the world trade center." My mind rushed back to four days earlier, when I found the artistís rendition of the five tornadoes in my closet and had told two staff members, "This has not yet happened-but it will-and I believe it involves the World Trade Center." Within a few moments, a second worker came bursting into the office. "A huge plane just crashed into the other tower." I immediately said, "It was a terrorists." Soon after, the message from the news was, "Yes, they believe it is a terrorists." Within a few hours, we discovered four planes were hijacked and three carried out suicide missions.
A few moments later, I told Kelvin McDaniel, "There will be five attacks, or five buildings affected by these attacks." The radio in our van blared out the shocking news that the Pentagon was hit and the twin towers had collapsed. By the following day, we learned that five buildings were directly affected by the attacks, in the worst tragedy in the history of America and the worse terrorist attack on record.
Calls Came pouring In
Within minutes of the attacks, the five lines on our office phones lit up as people from around the nation and parts of the world were calling to ask us for comments or a prophetic insight into the events. I began referring them back to the article called, "The Vision of the Five Tornadoes" printed in 1999.
Within 24 hours, I was on the phone with special call-in television interviews, sharing the information relating to the five year old vision and the word the Holy Spirit had laid upon my heart.
What is the Message Behind the Attacks?
To the radical Islamic fundamentalists, the message was clear: America is a supporter of the Jewish state of Israel. Because American policy supports Israel as a friend and a powerful middle east democracy, many Palestinians and middle eastern Muslims believe America should be punished by Allah (God), and they consider themselves the weapons for that punishment.
To the Christian population, the attack became the visible sign of a wake up call to the nation. It was a prophetic indicator that we are certainly living in the last days.
From a Biblical perspective, I am reminded of Godís warnings to Israel regarding prosperity. Godís covenant with Israel ensured that obedience would birth abundant blessings. The Almighty gave these promises to ancient Israel:
"And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I commanded thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all the nations of the earth:
"And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
"Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.
"Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and thy fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
"Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store." Deuteronomy 28:1-5
The Lord warned the Hebrew nation that if they did not obey His commandments and turn from the way of the Lord, the favor of God would be lifted from them. One of the dangers of disobedience to God would involve the enemies of the nation. If Israel fell into sin, God delivered them over to the will of their enemies.
"And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of my covenant: and when ye are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy. Leviticus 26:25
"Behold, therefore I have stretched out my hand over thee, and have delivered thee unto the will of them that hate thee..." Ezekiel 16:27
It is possible that the protective covering and hedge of the Almighty over the nation was lifted for a brief period on September 11, 2001. It was as though the Lord was saying, "If I am not protecting you, see what can happen when I allow the will of your enemies to prevail against you."
The scripture teaches there is a force that is restraining wickedness from overtaking the earth. This restraining force may be a combination of three things:
1.Michael the archangel, who is restraining the enemies of Israel (Daniel 12:1).
2.Preaching of the Word of God that is restraining spiritual wickedness from darkening the hearts of all men, or
3.The Holy Spirit which restrains the believers from practicing sin.
Paul wrote that when the restrainer was moved (taken away), then the wicked one (Antichrist) would be revealed.
"For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
"And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming." 2 Thessalonians 2:7-8
God has restrained evil upon America, but our sins are reaching into the heavens and perhaps He has allowed this to come in order to get us to turn to Him and repent of our sins. It is sad to say, but most people will never pray and repent unless a terrible tragedy occurs.
Space will not allow me to give you the pages of research and revelation I believe the Lord has given me relating to this subject. The Lord impressed me to place this information on Manna Fest and put together a video for the friends and partners of our ministry. I am making it available immediately. Please see the enclosed advertisement on "PROPHETIC INSIGHT ON THE ATTACK UPON AMERICA."
OK, so that was what Perry Stone had to say about "The Five Tornados" after the 11th of September attack on America (emphasis added through the leading of the Holy Spirit) . And as you have just read, the Lord brought many Scriptures to Brother Stoneís mind that will likewise help us to understand the tragic events and the meaning of "The Five Tornados". However, before we get into the interpretation of his "vision and dream" thereís one final e-mail we need to examine:
Sent: Tuesday, October 23, 2001 6:09 PM
Subject: Five Tornados
Dear Brother Stone,
Sunday night I was able to watch "Manna Fest" for the first time in several weeks. After it was ended the Lord had me watch "Babylon Back From The Dead" once again. As I was preparing for bed the Lord brought back to my memory the VOE that contained "The Vision of the 5 Tornados" and told me to read it again. After searching through my stack I was finally able to find Volume 21/Issue 2 and likewise read it again.
The following morning I played a JSM Church Video from 1996, and the sermon on Joseph included the Scripture from Genesis 43:34 - "And he took and sent messes unto them from before him: but Benjamin's mess was five times so much as any of theirs. And they drank, and were merry with him."
Well after having watched it once the Lord had me watch it a second time. And as I did He started showing me how your "5 Tornados" fit in with this last phase of The Church and Benjamin's 5-fold blessing. Then it was later on that same day, when I finally got my mail, that I received your VOE Volume 23/Number 5 with "Did The Vision Come To Pass?"
Now I'll admit that I don't have clout when it comes to prophecy, but the Lord has given me His command to send you a copy of the JSM sermon so you can hear it for yourself. Because what He's telling me is that the USA has only seen one of the five tornados that you saw in your vision. What you saw is actually a composite picture of the last Church Period (Benjamin's 5-fold blessings) before the final Tribulation Period.
I'll try and get you a copy in the mail before the end of the week. Please seek God on what's been said.
In the Lord Jesus Christ,
Well as you can see this is going to be one more long sermonet, but what can I say? I was instructed by the Lord to present all the information, and thatís exactly what Iíve done. So now that youíve seen it, I guess itís time for me to start explaining it. And you see the most important thing that Almighty God has been trying to bring out through my correspondence to Perry Stone is that Jimmy Swaggart and his ministry is very special to Him.
Now for most folks that last statement will be extremely hard to swallow. I mean after all, much of the world has pretty much written Jimmy Swaggart off as a "no-good whore-chassin preacher" who has "no rights to be preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ". So if that many people feel that way about him why do you figure the Lord holds him in such high regard?
Well the answer to that particular question is that Jimmy Swaggart has always preached the Word of God that the Lordís laid on his heart to preach (The Gospel)... and heís done it regardless of the persecution and hardships that might follow. So if Jimmy Swaggart is so perfect then why did he commit sin and have to confess it before the whole world? I mean after all, the following Scripture from I John 3:5-9 does apply to him too: "And ye know that he [Jesus] was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him neither known him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God"
So the question remains: how could Jimmy Swaggart sin if he is "born of God"? Well without a doubt that is one more tough question, but it just so happens that the Lord is giving us the answer through an understanding of "the human body and sin". Because you see the body is made up of many itty bitty little parts that all connect up to make the one whole person. And even though the "whole person" does become "born-again" when they initially accept Jesusí Perfect Sacrifice on The Cross, they are by no means "born-again" in all the individual parts of their body.
The process of being "made new in Christ" is one that continues on throughout the Christianís life, as that person walks in obedience to the Will of God as directed by His Holy Spirit. And thatís why the word "whosoever" in the Scripture "Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin" actually means a part of the whole. God cleans us up piece by piece, and cell by cell. So when it comes to Godís warning that thereís absolutely no excuse for the "born-again" Christian to sin, Heís talking about the individual parts of that Christian that have already been cleaned up. In fact, for those of you who might be interested, weíve already gotten a pretty good start in describing this "sin removing process" in our sermonet The Water In The Blood! (10/22/00).
However, having said what weíve just said does not give anyone the right to sin. Because you see Father God never puts any of His children in a situation where they will be tempted to sin if they havenít already been given the opportunity to "die to that sin" first. And with that information in mind we can now go back to the issue of Brother Swaggartís sin problem. Because it was in our sermonet Pastor Stevens And The Rejected Word From God! (5/27/01) that the Lord gave us an understanding of not only how his sin happened but why it happened... which takes us on into the Scripture of Colossians 3:17: "And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him."
You see everything we do in life is either going to work for God or Satan! Through our actions weíre either going to "die to our sinful flesh and be born-again of His Spirit" or be "overpowered by the sinful flesh in us". God has The Plan for our lives that will keep us from sinning if weíll only hear what it is and walk in it. And believe it or not but what actually caused Brother Swaggart to fall into sin was something seemingly unrelated to his sin. You see Father God told Brother Swaggart to build the JSM Worship Center for 10,000 people, but he only built it for 5,000. And because he didnít "fight the good fight of faith" by obeying the Lord in his building plans he wasnít prepared for the "real life encounter" that would later on take him into sin. Brother Swaggart didnít want to sin, but seeing how he hadnít completely obeyed Godís Will he wasnít fully prepared to overcome the temptation of that specific sin. In other words the way the human body works is that itís Naturally Dead Until Spiritually Alive! (10/1/00).
So, how do you want your fire... now or later? And having said all that itís time to get back to Brother Stone and the "vision and dream" of his "Five Tornados". Because what the Lord has given me is that " the vision" seen by Perry ó with the ministersí houses, concrete wall, corn field, and etc. ó was Godís way of showing Brother Stone what was about to happen from the "outside looking in". And it was six months later in his "night dream" ó with the church building, business buildings, and etc. ó that the Lord was allowing Brother Stone to see the same "earth shaking" events from the "inside looking out".
Now looking at the "vision" first, what we have is a very vivid picture of the church world of today. We have a whole bunch of church folks (ripe corn) just waiting to be brought into (harvested for) Godís Kingdom, however, thereís seems to be no one willing to do it! You see on the other side of that concrete barrier there sits a retirement village for ministers of The Gospel, who, we should say, are "no more". Because on the right-hand side of the road are the ministers who once preached The Gospel in itís "uncompromised form"... but due to the seemingly "insurmountable barrier" erected between them and the church folk (concrete wall) they just flat out gave up on preaching Godís Word altogether.
And then thereís the retired ministers on the left-hand side of the road. These "men of the cloth" have gone into retirement even though theyíre actually still preaching. You see due to the seemingly "insurmountable barrier" erected between them and the church folk these ministers have sorta like traded in "The Gospel" that makes "people fear for their everlasting lives and run for the altar" for a "new and revised gospel" that tends to make the church folk "feel good about themselves". I mean even though they do preach "a gospel" to the church folk, itís not "The Gospel" thatís going to bring them into the Kingdom of Heaven (Godís Harvest).
So, now that weíve given-out a few of the details on the ministers, what do you say we jump over the wall and see whatís going down on the other side of the barrier. Because you see itís in this "corn field" that weíll discover where the "beautiful ripe corn" (the church) has been getting all of itís "energy for growing". Itís called "made-made power", delivered through "man-made power lines", as produced by the "man-made gods of this world". I mean thatís what the great big old black tower in the background is all about. Itís the power source of the church world of today ó the flesh of man producing an "earthly substitute" for Godís "Holy Ghost Power" ó and through five (5) long years (equally spaced periods) of terrible trouble (tornados) God Almighty is going to miraculously bring a few unbelieving church members back to Him on their knees.
In fact Isaiah 31:1-3 does a real good job of describing what God Almighty is in the process of doing: "Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the Lord! Yet he also is wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words: but will arise against the house of the evildoers, and against the help of them that work iniquity. Now the Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the Lord shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together."
You see thatís what "The Five" is all about in Brother Stoneís vision of "The Five Tornados". The "Power of God" is symbolically illustrated by "the Five Fingers of Godís Right Hand", and itís likewise Godís Right Hand thatís either going to bring the church back to Him or turn them away completely. And now that weíve said all that, we can introduce what the Lord had us "speak" to Brother Stone in our last e-mail. You know, the thing about "Benjamin and the five-fold blessings". And just to give you a little hint about where weíre "headed to" with this thing, the name "Benjamin" means "son of my right hand".
In fact digging a little deeper into the Scriptures, we can find the following prophetic description of Benjamin in Genesis 49:27 as it was given by his father Jacob: "Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil." And then in Deuteronomy 33:12 we can also find the blessing that Moses gave for Benjamin: "And of Benjamin he said, The beloved of the LORD shall dwell in safety by him; and the LORD shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between his shoulders."
So what do you think it all means? Well in order to answer that question what do you say we take a look at one specific word that the Lord used to describe Benjamin. Because in Hebrew the word for "wolf" (Strongís #2061) means "to be yellow; a wolf". And taking that one step further, in The New Ungerís Bible Dictionary we find the following: "The wolf is the terror of the sheep but usually flees from the shepherd. Wolves are numerous in all the sheep walks of this land. The emblematic references to the ferocity and bloodthirstiness of the wolf are numerous and forcible."
Now isnít it interesting that the Lord has told me that "Benjamin and his five-fold blessings" will be the "Last Church Period" before He raptures His Church and begins the Great Tribulation Period. And seeing how the Lordís coming back to get His Church ó "without spot or wrinkle" ó before the Great Tribulation Period begins, how would you suppose Heís going to do it with the church world of today being so all fired "spotted and wrinkled"?
Well the answer to that is "Benjaminís Five-fold Blessings" or "The Five Tornados"! And you see the way itís all going to happen was predicted in the prophecy of "A Great Shaking" that was given at the Jimmy Swaggart Ministries not too long ago [see Pastor Tom Brownís Fear! (9/23/01)]. In fact this is as good a time as ever to give out one more prophetic Word from JSM concerning this same "Last Church Period":
The Testing Season
Have I not commanded you,
Be strong and of a good courage.
Do not be afraid or be dismayed,
For the Lord your God is with you.
For this is the testing season.
For the Lord your God will test His people
To see those that are His and those that are not.
But my sheep hear my voice and know me.
But do not be afraid,
For I shall bring you from a test to a testimony.
And you shall testify of the goodness and the greatness of God Almighty
Saith the Lord.
I mean what weíre talking about is a "wolf" sent by God (Benjamin) for the sole purpose of "testing" the sheep (followers of Christ) in order to see which are His and which are not. And for all those "sheep" who suddenly realize theyíre following an "apostate shepherd" whoís not going to protect them from the wolf, well... thatís right about the time a few of the "spots and wrinkles" in the church start to disappear. Because itís just as we said in the sermonet on Pastor Tom Brownís Fear! (9/23/01), once the human body gets all yoked-up in sin it takes a whole bunch of shaking in order to jar it lose. And when it comes to the sin of "manís religion in the church", weíre talking about a few ó FIVE to be exact ó major earthquakes!
And you see thatís what this thing about "Benjaminís Five-fold Blessings" is all about. For all those who are following the One True Shepherd (Jesus) theyíll be rewarded greatly during this time of testing in the "Last Church Period". However, for all those whoíre not... well, theyíll get blessed too... once they turn away from their "apostate shepherd"! I mean it couldnít be more obvious; thatís exactly what the Scriptures are saying: "Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf...The beloved of the LORD shall dwell in safety by him."
In fact before we move on into Brother Stoneís "night dream", letís take just a few more lines to kinda like help you understand the way Godís "Benjamin" is going to work. Godís great apostle Paul was of the tribe of Benjamin. He was a true "Benjamite"! And before he became a "Paul" he was a "Saul". And without wasting any more time getting to where Iím going, Matthew Henry said it best in his description of Paul the Benjamite: "Blessed Paul was of this tribe (Rom. xi 1; Phil. iii 5); and he did in the morning of his day, devour the prey as a persecutor, but, in the evening, divided the spoil as a preacher."
All right, so getting back to Brother Stoneís "night dream", what he saw from the "inside looking out" was a church full of terrified church folks being shaken beyond measure, as the five tornados, one by one, "roared by and struck" the church. And of course the very good reason why the church didnít have a door is because Jesus is "The Door" of "The True Church" ó the one without "spot or wrinkle" ó and this church most certainly wasnít it! The shepherd of this church was an apostate shepherd at best, and of course thatís the very good reason why the wolf was able to do such a "ravaging" job on it!
Next we see the church folk anxiously running out of this very shaken church to pick-up on the hand-outs left by some unknown nice folks. Now the "other folks" who had all that nice stuff to give away are none other than those of "The One True Church" whoíre following "The One True Shepherd". I mean this is exactly what Deuteronomy 28 is all about: "And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments...all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee... But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments...that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:"
OK, now as the scene changes, we see the skyline of a large city, complete with lots of tall skyscrapers, and quite a few of them damaged... but on the inside only! And this part of the dream Iím very familiar with because Iíve sorta like been there already. You see in my role as "snake hunter" I was sent into The Toro Company to run out the snakes. However, it was only shortly after a few of the snakes had been identified that Mr. Ken Melrose (CEO) didnít live up to his title of "Christian CEO" and I ended up getting a pretty bad snake bite [see The Big Snake Makes A Strike! (3/28/99)].
So you see Mr. Ken Melrose of The Toro Company is running with the same flock of sheep whoís shepherd is nothing more than an apostate! He heard the Voice of The One True Shepherd but he just wasnít any too willing to obey Him. And it was because of that one little old fact that the Lord had me include the following very strong prophetic Word to him in our sermonet God Warns The Moses Of Toro Three Times! (7/4/99): "...You see He [God] told me that I needed to tell you that the Toro business was a headed for a fall... and this fall was coming because you have continually refused to follow what "thus saith the Lord!" And even though the sales for this upcoming season might be going through the roof, it seems as though the product we are making will only fall through the floor. Now I have no earthly idea (or Heavenly for that matter) whether or not it's too late for you to stop the upcoming disaster. But what I do know is that regardless of what efforts we might put into making it not happen it will happen... because the Lord has declared it to be."
Now the preceding information was included in an e-mail to the CEO of The Toro Company, Mr. Ken Melrose, who claims to be a Christian but yet doesnít hear God and obey Him. And even though his response to my e-mail was to tighten security measures against any "terrorist attacks", his actions will not do one bit of good in trying to stop the Powerful Hand of God. God says The Toro Company is headed for a fall, and the tornado is going to hit on a clear day, with beautiful blue skies, when nobodyís expecting it to happen.
You see thatís what "The Five Tornados" is all about. The man-made gods of this world are going to be shaken... along with all those who worship them... whether "Christian" or not. This is what the Lord was telling Brother Stone in his very alarming "vision and dream". In fact two more real good examples of those in the corporate world who "claim the name of Jesus but worship another" can be found in the warnings from God we gave to the following: One of the "big cheese" of Telco Industries in our sermonet Ungodly: Andrea Yates And Mike Mason (CEO Of Weather-Matic)! (7/22/01) and Sam Moore (CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishing) in our sermonet Pastor Tom Brownís Fear! (9/23/01).
So having said all that itís now time to uncover the reason why Evangelist Perry Stone was a very real part of this "vision and dream" himself. You see Brother Stone was running down the left-hand side of the street barefoot, in the retired ministersí village, because he too has not preached what the Good Lord has called him to preach. Now even though he is preaching a good gospel, it is not The Gospel specifically prepared for him and his ministry. And because of it, his feet are not "shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace...", nor is he presently "hidden in The Rock". His safety "in The Rock" [King Jesus] will only come about when he obeys Almighty God by preaching "the fiery messages" that heís been called to preach. Nothing should stop him from getting out the message that God has given him to deliver; not the fear of losing his ministry, not the fear of losing his family and friends, nor the fear of losing his life!
And furthermore, if my Brother in the Lord doesnít make a course correction in his ministry very quickly his "pearls of great price" [preaching of the gospel] will be damaged severely by the judgment of God. In other words Brother Stone will be in the church without The Door [Jesus] as the storms of Godís Wrath lash out against all the unbelieving church folk.
And while weíre on the subject of Godís Wrath, the "red sparks" coming from the five spinning tornados are symbolic of Godís judgment: "For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator." (I Peter 4:17-19)
May God use this message for the salvation of souls during this last great End Time Harvest. Because, without a doubt, the time has come for all "dead preachers preaching dead sermons to dead congregations" to cease and decease!
Obey Godís Will so that you can Keep On Keeping The Faith In Jesus!!!
(Note:The following e-mail was sent out after the writing of this sermonet.)

Dear Brother Stone,
I now understand your "barefoot and broken string of pearls" a little bit better. It was on Sunday night's Manna Fest that you publicly gave praise to the ministries of Rynhart Bunkee and Joyce Meyer. Don't you realize these ministers are preaching "another Jesus"? Through her ministry Joyce Meyer has made it abundantly clear that if you don't believe Jesus had to be tormented in Hell in order to redeem mankind from sin then you aren't saved! She says that His Perfect Blood that was shed on the Cross was not enough! Blasphemy is what it is! In fact you can read what the Lord had us to say about this damnable doctrine in our sermonet The Word Of Faith Error And Copeland, Meyer, Price, Crouch, And Hinn! at http://www.fmh-child.org.
You too have been called to speak out against the lies of the apostate church... but will you???
In the Lord Jesus Christ,
And having said that, we'll close it down with two final comments: #1) I can't spell. The word "apostacy" in Perry Stone's e-mail should have been spelled with an "s" instead of the "c". #2) Don't miss the upcoming sermonet Jimmy Swaggart And The Accursed! (12/30/01). It'll be posted on the 31st of December, 2001, and what a way to close out the year!
