The Vision -by David Wilkerson, 1973

The Vision -by David Wilkerson, 1973

Just this past week I heard of a vision that David Wilkerson had back in 1973 where he saw many things that were in the future of the United States.

I didn’t remember hearing of this before so I did some research. I found that David Wilkerson preached a message where he explained the vision that the Holy Spirit gave him 3 months earlier in April, 1973. It can be found on YouTube and the on Sermon Index. I also found a website that summarizes some of the vision and it is sobering to realize how many things have already been fulfilled.

And then I read how the Lord showed him that the coming economic collapse will start in Europe and spread to Japan before coming to the United States. Here is an excerpt:

“Worldwide recession caused by economic confusion”

  1. “At most a few more fat flourishing years, and then an economic recession that’s going to affect the life style of every wage-earner in the world. The world economists are going to be at loss to explain what’s happening. It’s going to start in Europe, spread to Japan and finally to the United States.”
  2. There will be a move toward a worldwide, unified monetary system. The US dollar will be hit bad and it will take years for it to recover.
  3. The only real security will be in real estate (until a somewhat later stage, at which point this apparent security will also disappear).


Just this week there was an article explaining how Germany and Japan are in financial trouble. It seems like prophecy is being fulfilled. Here is the first paragraph:

There are some who believe that the next great financial crash will not begin in the United States.  Instead, they are convinced that a financial crisis that begins in Europe or in Japan (or both) will end up spreading across the globe and take down the U.S. too.  Time will tell if they are ultimately correct, but even now there are signs that financial trouble is already starting to erupt in both Germany and Japan.  German stocks have declined 10 percent since July, and that puts them in “correction” territory.  In Japan, the economy is a total mess right now.  According to figures that were just released, Japanese GDP contracted at a 7.1 percent annualized rate during the second quarter and private consumption contracted at a 19 percent annualized rate.  Could a financial collapse in either of those nations be the catalyst that sets off financial dominoes all over the planet?

David Wilkerson published a book about his vision in 1974 and recently in 2003 the book was republished as, The Vision and Beyond.
Interesting times we live in for sure!
