Wake Up Church
The United States is in Trouble
By: Prophet Elmore Richmond Jr.
At Luke 4:24, Jesus said, “Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country.” As a Prophet to the Nation, I know what this is like; God showed me 9/11 before it happened and my life has not been the same.
Isaiah 29:9-13 says:
9 Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.
10For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.
11And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: 12And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
13Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
Surely God has poured out the spirit of deep sleep on many Christians in America today. At Revelation 22:18–19, Apostle John testified unto every man that hearth the words of the prophecy of this book; he explains: If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
Surely John was an Apostle and a Prophet of God in the name of JESUS. Although there are many who are aware of this prophecy, they have clearly disregarded the Word of God. Many today use Bibles that are not the Word of God. Some who have clearly demonstrated this disregard are pastors and teachers; they are teaching from altered texts of the Word of God. Although these books claim to be Bibles they are not the Holy Bible and they undermine the integrity of the written Word of God. Over the years, God has sent His saints to warn these saints; however many have not received them. Surely the love of money is the root of all evil.
As a Prophet of God in the name of Jesus, I testify today that there are many who profess to know Christ are fast asleep. Some have failed to study to show themselves approved unto God. Some have been taught from bibles that have corrupted them from the onset of their walk. However, there are some that understand this reality; but they believe if they accept this “Truth” today they would have to change some of their church doctrines. They also believe if they should accept this “Truth” their status would be reduced in the eyes of men and women who have put their trust in them; moreover they would also lose their ranking in the Church in the eyes of men and women. Surely for them who have this mindset they are full of pride and are motivated by the love of money which is the root of all evil.
The United States of America is in serious trouble and many of the Saints of God are fast asleep. They do not understand the Way of the Lord. Therefore, there are many who do not fear God based on His precepts. America is experiencing destroying winds all around her and the storms keep coming in the form of hurricanes and tornadoes. Some cannot believe that God will send America destroying winds because they believe America is a good nation, America help nations around the world. Thus they believe that God will always bless America.
Although the word of God is clear; The King James Version of the Bibles says at Isaiah 28: 2Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand. And Jeremiah 51:1-2 says: “1Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will raise up against Babylon, and against them that dwell in the midst of them that rise up against me, a destroying wind; 2And will send unto Babylon fanners, that shall fan her, and shall empty her land: for in the day of trouble they shall be against her round about.”
Some will say this is talking about Babylon; this is not talking about the United States of America. However, when you search the scriptures you will discover that God established standards as to how He would deal with Babylon and the images of Babylon; the standards were published and not concealed. This means that the standard will always stand to include any nation that conducts its affairs as a Babylon. Jeremiah records this word at Jeremiah 50:1-2 “1The word that the LORD spake against Babylon and against the land of the Chaldeans by Jeremiah the prophet. 2Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces.”
The writers of the NIV changed Jeremiah 51:1-2 regarding the destroying wind. This is not the only change the NIV has made; the NIV has also removed a foundational scripture at 1 John 5:7! The NIV removed all reference to the Word of God that there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost and these three are one. Consequently, the NIV changed other related scripture; these changes make it impossible to properly study the Word of God to discover the full stature of Jesus Christ.
In respect to the change regarding removing destroying winds at Jeremiah 51:1-2, this is a very serious mistake. Only if the writers of the NIV knew the way of the Lord and what is in His treasures. Psalm 135:6-7 says: “6Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places. 7He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries.”
Jeremiah 10:13 also explains how God controls the storms: “12 He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion. 13When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.”
Jesus clearly demonstrates that God controls the storms. The Bible records how God uses the wind starting at Genesis 8:1, Exodus 14:21, Exodus 19:13 and Number 11:31. Today, many profess we are experiencing these storms because of climate change. We must remember that it is God who changes the climate. When you understand the Way of the LORD, you will understand what God is doing today. God is bringing forth judgement, however we have a merciful God. It is important to understand how God applies judgement to nations. Jeremiah at 5:7-10 explains it as follows: “7 At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; 8 If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. 9 And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; 10 If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.”
Many may ask the question, how could the United States of America be called a Babylon? Like Babylon, the United States has put its trust in its military might. Babylon is known as a hammer because Babylon used its military might to shape other nations. (Jeremiah 50:23) The history of the United States will clearly show how the United States has sowed discord among brethren in other nations, destroyed other nations without just cause and has rushed to shed innocent blood. The United States has done other things that the LORD hates to include some things that are an abomination unto God. When we understand the way of the LORD, we will understand that God loves people throughout the world; if we keep this in mind we can begin to understand how the United States has come up against God like Babylon.
For example! (1) Desert Storm, the bombing of Iraq in 1991! (2) The war on Iraq without provocation! (3) Arab Spring! God loves the people in Iraq; in Iraq we unjustifiably used our military might and killed thousands and brought much destruction to Iraq’s infrastructure. Listen carefully, out of God’s treasures, God sent destroying winds to the United States. It is very clear, when we unjustifiably use our military might on other nations, God brings destruction back to us. At times God may use other military powers or God may send destroying winds or both. God is faithful to all of His promises; The United States of America is in trouble as a nation and it is divided against itself. According to the Word of God a nation divided against itself, cannot stand. As promised, God is sending destroying winds to the United States of America and these winds are all round about the United States.
In order to receive this “Truth” you must have the love for “Truth.” Today the United States is in a box as outlined at Isaiah 33:1 “1Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou wast not spoiled; and dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee! when thou shalt cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled; and when thou shalt make an end to deal treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with thee.” In our war on terrorism, only the mercy of God can get us out of this box because we have sowed some bad seeds. Thus the more the United States sheds innocent blood, the more bad seeds are planted; today fruits are all around the world to include within the United States.
We just experienced Hurricane Florence; a very destructive storm. It was good to see how the leadership of the land responded and pledged to work together to restore the land. Think about it for a moment. What happened after we unjustifiably bombed Iraq; Did the United States lead the way to help restore Iraq? Remember the people of Iraq are also God’s people. God also sent His only begotten Son to save the people in Iraq and other nations throughout the Middle East, nations that we have sowed discord among brethren, and even supplied arms to the rebels to destroy their governments. I am not writing this as an historian, however as a Prophet of God in the name of Jesus.
Now listen; I first shared this message at the direction of God to President George W. Bush on October 6, 2001, within weeks after 9/11. In March 2003, God clearly showed me as we were going out destroying other nations with our military might – God was bringing destruction back to the United States in the form of destroying winds, floods, and fires. God even showed me that he had removed this cover from around our military and the nation would suffer financially. God clearly showed me that the United States could not win the war on terrorism with our military might. President George W. Bush was warned back in 2001; a total of 13 letters were sent to him during his presidency. President Barack Obama was warned; over 30 letters were sent to him. Now the warnings have been sent out to President Donald Trump; as of this date 11 letters have been sent to President Trump.
Satan has been very effective in deceiving many. Satan has undermined the integrity of the Word of God; Satan has used men and women who are very skillful with the English language to write bibles that sound so sweet to the ears; however they do not meet the test as outlined at Isaiah 28:9-10 “9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. 10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:” We have posted several teaching on our website regarding the NIV and other bibles. One of the works is titled: “Regaining Our Focus of God’s Strategic Battle Plan” Click on this link to discover why you should use the King James Version of the Holy Bible. Click here to watch a video that explains why God sends storms to destroy.
This word is for people who truly love God; the ones who are willing to study to show themselves approved unto God in the name of JESUS. Some are looking for quick fixes and are not willing to study. We have established this website with articles and videos that are designed to help ensure the counsel of God will go forth to the leaders of the nation. Moreover, these works are designed to help make the Bride of Christ ready. God has also put several books at our hands to include the following: (1) “Edifying the Body of Christ: Unbinding the Strong Man” (2) “Ending Terrorism In the United States: God Has Warned U. S.” and (3) “The New Birth: Going Onto Perfection”
We are praying for the leaders of the United States that will learn to fear God based on His precepts in the name of JESUS. Saints of God, we have work to do; we pray that you will search the site, pray, use your gifts and give God the glory in the name of JESUS. We also pray that you will share in love to help ensure that this counsel of God will go forth in the name of JESUS!
