And read it, more importantly. I love David Wilkerson because no matter what you do to him, he just keeps preaching! He's like those wobbly dolls, nothing ever seems to phase him.
Not even the end of the world.
David never actually made a big thing of that particular thing, YES, I know he wrote "The Vision" and "Set the Trumpet to thy mouth", but if you listened to his ministry tapes he was never really telling Star Wars stories in the way that Bro' Hal was. And its just as well. We live in a complex world, I'm an engineer, he's a preacher, we're both busy. David is very concerned with telling you almost NONE of the things that the Christian pundits were raving on about, i.e. the bottom IS going to drop outa the market, NASDAQ is going to the bathroom and never coming back, etc, etc. There's been loads of web sites saying just those things since 1998. And quite rightly so, they were all right.
So David writes a book almost while this is upon us, and says what... The Goodness of God. The Provision of God. The Mercy of God. The fathfulness of God. Yes!! I'm getting goosepimples even as I write that! Why - because this is the whole show folks. Not some Stooopid state of the union adress, the light is eventually fall from that stage, and onto the real thing, which is eternity. And the book is saying this - our God is MIGHTY, and a little old depression is not going to change him.
If you are in the boat with the Lord, you will be OK because ipso facto you are with him. Davids' thesis is that. It doesn't matter too much, you keep looking to the rock of your salvation, and he will take care of you. Forget your bond holdings, look to your treasure in heaven.

One of the best for these latter times 4 Feb. 2004
By Tina - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is so good. It talks about building a realtionship with the Lord, and having a spitutual life instead of focusing on the natural life. This is a call to draw close and be in His love so that all the normal everyday fears that are expected to come with the end times do not affect your life for you have your eyes on Him. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND IT, there is hardly any other book I've read like it. It IS God's answer for the worries and fears over what is going to happen, and how He will keep His bride from what shall come upon the world.

May the Lord lead you to get this book 27 Aug. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
When faced with a harsh, sudden crisis, financial situation or lost of a loved one, it is very easy to panic, fret and doubt who is really in control of your life as a Christian. This book is truly a message from God to those who find themselves in despair during life's tribulations. It also exposes the destiny of nations, the United States among others, during an impending global economic depression. If you've been watching the news, and all world events, wars, stock market, and political globalization topics, you'll realize that those events are near, even at the door. Most importantly, the book deals with how, true Christ trusting believers, should prepare and learn the faith necessary to carry them through these tough times, instead of relying on the "false sense of security" that a good present job and a good present life provide. I strongly encourage you in the Lord to get this book. Probably the best you've invested in a long time.

God's Protection Plan 8 Jan. 2008
By Vivian Kauffman - Published on
Format: Paperback
"God's Plan to Protect His people During the Coming Depression" by David Wilkerson is like a manual for the days ahead of us in the not-too-distant future. David gives spiritual insight and solid wisdom on how to live during the great depression that is sure to come to America, and probably the rest of the world as well. Although in the natural it could be a time of fear, in the spiritual, it could be the greatest time ever --drawing closer to Jesus, watching and believing in His promises to see us through all kinds of problems. David emphasizes putting our focus on Jesus -- trusting in Him for our every need -- whether in time of peril or peace!

The Time for Fulfillment is Now Literally Upon Us 7 Jan. 2009
By Peter Wittstock - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
With a dramatic upsurge in the fulfillment of an ever-increasing number of his predictions, David Wilkerson is looking more and more like the seer-prophet he has always DISclaimed himself to be. As the literary sequel to AMERICA'S LAST CALL, ON THE BRINK OF A FINANCIAL HOLOCAUST (hereafter, ALC) (Lindale, Texas: Wilkerson Trust Publications, 1998), GOD'S PLAN TO PROTECT HIS PEOPLE IN THE COMING DEPRESSION (hereafter, GPPPCD)(New Kensington, Pennsylvania: Whitaker House, 2000) further details the seer's vision concerning the expected judgment upon the world-at-large and the United States of America in particular. Already ten years old, this second edition from Whitaker House was published two years after the 1998 original from Wilkerson Trust Publications and has been adopted verbatim with the exception of a new cover design and a larger font. The original page count of 195 has now increased to 219 as a result of the larger font. This book describes the economic chaos of 2008 so precisely it is difficult to believe it has already been in circulation for ten years. It is, however, the seer insists " . . . not about the bad news facing our nation. Rather, it is about the good and comforting news of God's covenant promises to preserve and protect his people through every storm" (p. 6). And "storm" it is sure to be! If there was ever a doubt in the seer's heart concerning the certainty of his earlier visions as they pertained to future economic collapse, it is nowhere to be found in this writing. "Worldwide economic holocaust" is still an unavoidable certainty, and so variously described under this cover that one can scarcely absorb all of its woeful features. Catastrophic economic depression is certain, but the survival and preservation of Christ's "elect lady"--his bride, the church--is also certain despite an unparalleled time of purging and trial.

Having made the case in ALC that God's imminent judgment upon the United States would be revealed most dramatically as a catastophic economic meltdown, Wilkerson proceeds in this sequel work, published in the same year, to build upon his thesis that all apects of American life are about to be profoundly and irrevocably shaken and changed. As mentioned, the descriptions of this soon-to-be-realized "shaking" are numerous and continue throughout GPPPCD. As is ALC, this time period is still described as a "financial holocaust" with more than fifty new reference tags, including: "the storm," "the awful rain of judgments," "the coming crash," "a disasterous depression," "a global depression marked by deprivation and suffering," "the coming global disaster," "America's upcoming financial collapse," "our hour of darkness," "our wilderness," "frightful times," "a time of major chaos," the "hour of deprivation and confusion," "when everything begins to fall apart," and "the greatest hour of darkness in history."

Wilkerson identifies this woeful period as having begun on 2 July 1997 (p. 99). But given the 34% Dow Jones drop; the 40% NASDAQ nosedive; and the $7 trillion lost in the U.S. stock market in 2008; the losses of 1997-'98 seem pale by comparison--not to mention the huge losses this past year in almost every national economy worldwide. The tremulous atmosphere of our present moment seems to be THE more earnest beginning of "the storm" about which the seer warned us exactly ten years ago.

Perhaps more than any other theological category, eschatology (i.e., "word about last things") always elicits many questions. There is a generous sprinkling of letters from the seer's mailbag that provides an interesting glimpse into the psyche of other real persons, like you and me, who have also had to consider the tremendous implications of what is now upon us. Many pertinent questions are addressed, such as:

Who brought down the U.S. stock market in 1929, and why? (Chap. 1)
What must be done in order to survive the coming depression? (p.32)
When does God move with power in behalf of his children to save them? (p. 36)
Why is God in the process of smashing the U.S. stock market? (p. 72-9)
Why will the U.S.A. be stricken with economic and societal chaos? (p. 72)
What lesson must every Christian learn in order to survive? (p. 86)
Will Chrisitans suffer during the coming depression? (p. 91)
What war do Christians need to focus on during this time? (p. 96)
Why is the global economic breakdown taking place? (p. 102)
What specific preparations should all Christians be making right now? (p. 143)
Will God revive his people during this time of purging and judgment? (p. 146)
After the Lord pulls down every trusted institution in America, and panic sets in, what will be the only wealth left in the land? (p. 30)

There are some crucial spiritual insights that must not be missed in this, the seer's most sublime and climactic work to date. Abraham and the promises made to him serve as the primary, archetypal reference. Eight pages of Scripture references from the Book of Psalms, entitled: "Scriptures to Live by in Perilous Times" are included at the back of the book. They are followed by the "Times Square Church Emergency Preparedness Plan." This plan contains an itemized list of the various food and supply items that the congregation has already laid-up at their facility in New York City. This list may easily serve as a guideline for readers wishing to have on hand what is necessary, and to avoid future food price hikes.

GPPPCD is nothing short of "wisdom from above." God has supplied this wisdom for the sake of all those aspiring to an eternal "marriage." It has been given to help the bride prepare herself that she may be able to hear the voice of her betrothed when He calls. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, nor can I imagine a more timely and important work with which to begin the new year of 2009. GPPPCD should be the next book you buy. It should be read and assimilated as quickly as possible while the world's markets are yet standing. The remaining 66% of the Dow Jones may be dispensed with shortly.

Although potentially frightening to many uninitiated readers, GPPPCD offers the embrace of a mature, trusted, spiritual father who has brought us to the lip of the boiling sea which he foresaw for the first time almost thirty-six years ago. We, in our turn, must now reach for the hand of the Holy Spirit, and make our crossing with Him.

(If you have not already read AMERICA'S LAST CALL, ON THE BRINK OF A FINANCIAL HOLOCAUST, it is, in the opinion of this reviewer, appropriately read first.)

Secular and Non-Secular Running Parallel 1 Aug. 2006
By D. Hamelink - Published on
Format: Paperback
Seldom does the secular and non-secular world agree with each other. However this is precisely what has happened.

We had just spent some time with our financial advisor to see, "...what condition our condition was in..." to borrow a phrase...

At any rate our advisor advised us to be debt free by 2010 because all the societal and financial indicators are pointing to a depression (not recession) beginning no later than 2010.

So shortly after our meeting with the financial advisor, I found this book by Dave Wilkerson, a man whose ministry is nearly impeccable (nobody is perfect...), with the title, "God's Plan to Protect His People in the Coming Depression". It was too coincidental to ignore.

Currently my husband is reading the book and has found it to be disturbing but hopeful. Once I read it I may be able to add additional review information.
