Prophecies for America
14 April 2009
by Joie Pirkey
Beginning last April the Lord began to speak to me about the turning economy and then began, piece by piece, to explain some things coming in the next few years. In March I was asked to share some of it
Saturday, Feb 21, 2009
I was taking some time on Saturday, February 21, to seek God and pray. He began to speak to me in a way that I could not see Him but could hear Him. He told me a public event was going to happen that would
spur an inordinate amount of violence in the United States.
He said, “It would happen twelve twelve.” I didn't know if He meant a date, or a time, or something symbolic. He said there would be some people, the majority of them would be black, in the big cities that would
react by going out and rioting: start buildings on fire, loot, and destroy things.
As these acts would occur the media would begin to portray them as racially inspired actions. As the rioting continues and the media stirs up the race issue, random acts of violence against white people occur.
Even rapes would somehow be associated with these outbreaks.
Everyone will be watching footage of these riots and fires and such on television and the internet. More instant viewable footage will be available of these events than any other incident in the history of mankind.
People will be watching a lot of violence as it occurs.
As things are getting really out of control, groups of white people, the Lord called them militias, would begin to go out and find groups of rioting black people and become violent, even killing some.
While this is happening, the media continues to stir it up.
Eventually I saw the military get involved, after what seemed to be an extended delay.
I was told young men would get together, looking for opportunities to commit violence against black people, even in small towns across the nation. Murders will happen. This will all be on TV.
This whole thing doesn't last very long, a month or just short of that. Once the military gets involved it dies down quickly.
(I only told Alwyn, the President of my Shouts of Joy Ministries Board; I just mentioned it briefly without any details. Then a few days later I told Douglas but I told him not to tell anyone.)

On March 7th my Pastor, Tim Snell, sent me David Wilkerson's prophecy about these same events. I responded to Tim in brown just below each paragraph, in light of what the Lord was telling me. See email below:

Subject: AN URGENT MESSAGE From David Wilkerson.........
I received this, this afternoon. Read it and judge it for yourself. At best we are sobered and pause to think about what’s going on in our day and time. At worst this is dead on and we are warned and
prepared. As 1 Chronicles 12:32 implies we must understand the times. men of Issachar, who understood the times and knew what Israel should do - 200 chiefs, with all their relatives under their command;
Something to think about.

AN EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN.
IT IS GOING TO BE SO FRIGHTENING, WE ARE ALL GOING TO TREMBLE - EVEN THE GODLIEST AMONG US.
For ten years I have been warning about a thousand fires coming to New York City. It will engulf the whole megaplex, including areas of New Jersey and Connecticut. Major cities all across America will experience
riots and blazing fires - such as we saw in Watts, Los Angeles, years ago.
My (Joie’s) comment: This will begin because of what is going to happen in December.
There will be riots and fires in cities worldwide. There will be looting - including Times Square, New York City. What we are experiencing now is not a recession, not even a depression. We are under God’s wrath.
In Psalm 11 it is written, “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (v. 3).
My comment: I am not hearing that this is God's wrath but instead a ploy from the enemy to cause immature people to fear, of which God is going to use in multiple ways.
God is judging the raging sins of America and the nations. He is destroying the secular foundations.
My comment: The second sentence is true (at least from the part I am hearing; also this economy thing will financially wipe out a number of the immature churches built on the desire for
success and not on the will of God. Many mega churches are not full of deeply mature people and when they hold back their tithing because of the fear of the economy, the big churches will not be able to meet
their financial debt and many will fold). The sin of the believer is to fear their financial circumstance and thus hold back what the Lord has commanded us to give, that being the tithe. God will use this act
of fear to clean up the big churches. This is the fire that the scripture is speaking about in I Corinthians 3:
- 10By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds. 11For no one can lay any
foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, 13his work will be shown
for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work. 14If what he has built survives, he will receive his r
eward. 15If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames.”
- The prophet Jeremiah pleaded with wicked Israel, “God is fashioning a calamity against you and devising a plan against you. Oh, turn back each of you from your evil way, and reform your ways and deeds.
But they will say, It’s hopeless! For we are going to follow our own plans, and each of us will act according to the stubbornness of his evil heart” (Jeremiah 18:11-12).
My comment: He is speaking to the church here.
In Psalm 11:6, David warns, “Upon the wicked he will rain snares (coals of fire)...fire...burning wind...will be the portion of their cup.” Why? David answered, “Because the Lord is righteous” (v. 7).
This is a righteous judgment - just as in the judgments of Sodom and in Noah’s generation.
My comment: Not feelin' this one.
WHAT SHALL THE RIGHTEOUS DO? WHAT ABOUT GOD’S PEOPLE?
First, I give you a practical word I received for my own direction. Lay in store a thirty-day supply of food, toiletries and other essentials. In major cities, grocery stores are emptied
in an hour at the sign of an impending disaster.
As for our spiritual reaction, we have but two options. This is outlined in Psalm 11. We “flee like a bird to a mountain.” Or, as David says, “He fixed his eyes on the Lord on his throne in
heaven - his eyes beholding, his eyelids testing the sons of men” (v. 4). “In the Lord I take refuge” (v. 1).
My comment: Resist fear. Resist acting in fear, making decisions in fear. Continue to tithe. Stick together. No to fleeing!
I will say to my soul: No need to run...no need to hide. This is God’s righteous work. YES! I will behold our Lord on his throne, with his eye of tender, loving kindness watching over every step
I take - trusting that he will deliver his people even through floods, fires, calamities, tests, trials of all kinds.
My comment: Yes and Amen! And we not only need to believe it; we must LIVE it! This time of chaos is coming and we should be ready but we need to have God's perspective on it.
Much of what is coming is coming from the enemy, not the wrath of God because of our sin, at least how I hear it. We as the church must continue on in hope, in joy, in love, NOT IN FEAR which is the plan
of the enemy. To fear is to worship. Do not worship the flesh. Do not worship the enemy. Worship gives place to the one worshiped. This is serious and for now. God is saying that what we attend to,
what we are giving attention to, we are worshiping. If we attend and worry and think about money or the lack there of, if we fear chaos, or turmoil, we are not pleasing the Lord. Do not take sides!
Take love! Be aware of the ploy to push you to take a side. Take on LOVE only!
Note: I do not know when these things will come to pass, but I know it is not far off. I have unburdened my soul to you. Do with the message as you choose.
My comment: Begins in December but I am not allowed to say why. Not yet anyway.
God bless and keep you.

My concluding comment: Those are my thoughts and what I have been hearing from the Lord in the past short while. Jo
Monday March 9, 2009
Early in the morning on Monday I had a short vision in which I asked the Holy Spirit if this, the things I had heard about the riots and all, were true and He affirmed that yes they were.
Thursday, March 12, 2009 afternoon
I was at Michelle Little’s house and had a vision. The following was what Michelle wrote, verbatim, as I had the vision:
This fear that is drumming up all around us is not from God. Fear of your circumstance is not from God. Fear of God is from God. Fear of circumstance is not fear of God. Fear of wrath is fear of God.
But fear of losing your money or having difficult times is of the flesh.
When this public event happens people will be already wound up. The Holy Spirit was showing Joie how prior to this event, people will be wound tight with fear. Then when this event happens it will be
like the straw that breaks the camel’s back. With fear and hate, the demons are being worshiped, so they are “stirred up” and that’s where the looting comes from. Many black people
The Holy Spirit continued: Speak peace. As you live peace. As you have peace. As you stand on peace. Always know that He who has begun a good work will perform it.
will turn on whites and some white people will turn on blacks. There are many white people that are hating and waiting and will seize on that moment to act out in violence.
During this time many will pull back even more with their money. Money is not as big of a deal as people are making it. While all of this is happening, God will continue to beef up the economy of the Church.
He has plans for good from what the devil plans for evil. God is positioning the church to be more powerful than it has ever been in these recent times.
The Holy Spirit said: Joie tell them about the building in New York that will not burn down. (Joie then explains that the building is the one where the street comes together in a triangle and the
building is at the point; the building’s face is flat.) As she was explaining this to me the Holy Spirit said: In Manhattan. That building will not burn down. It is in Times Square.
The Holy Spirit said: David Wilkerson is hearing the Lord through the language he speaks and the understanding he has. He is voicing things through his voice like Joie voices thru her voice.
They are both speaking about the same thing. The same end will come through these events. The church will be purified. The world/flesh will be put down. And the wages of sin will be destruction.

I was at Michelle Little’s house working on the Rwanda pages on my web site. I had made a note to go over a number of pages that have not been updated for years. That afternoon I reread the poem that the
Lord asked me to write and gave it in a prophetic way about Rwanda. This poem was written, oddly enough, on March 15th in 2006. At that time I was asked to write a post script and to post it publically
even though it had nothing to do with Rwanda. After reading the short paragraph that I wrote when I posted it and then reading the entire poem I felt a very strong sense from the Lord that this last stanza
was for now. It was after reading this poem that I began to pray about going public with what I was hearing. Below is the poem and the paragraph in its entirety. Please pay close attention to the addendum.
March 15, 2006
I had a series of deeply painful dreams. When I woke up the Lord began to speak to me. He said that the real pain of genocide is the ripping of the soul, the death and loneliness of the living,
the pseudo survivors. The real survivors are those who go to the Comforter and receive life for their death. We, as the church, assist those survivors with our tears. We share their burden and
ease their pain and legitimize their soul by weeping. We open a door of hope to their death, a door in which their very essence can hope for God. When a soul, any soul hopes in God, then there is
life after all. In a vision I was given the mandate to write a verse. He called it a verse in the vision. He also said that the world would read it and He would cause the world to weep for Rwanda,
for its walking dead, for those who could weep no more. And when the world would weep, the altar of death that Rwanda was, the altar constructed by Satan himself to bring worship of fear and even blood
sacrifices to himself, this altar would be washed clean by our tears. I know that we the church will not fail Him again for Rwanda, but will allow our living souls to weep. May God have His way as I write
the words that He has given through this prophet and comforted soul…
Weep for Rwanda
15 March 2006
by Joie Pirkey
The hate was stirring
The demons danced
Worship had begun
Fear came next, but not of God
The devil got his glance.
Searching for a chance.
“You’ll use it all somehow,”
the prophet whispered as he watched
“I know you always do”
What seems completely unfathomable
Becomes our deepest seeds
When our souls grasp round our deepest needs
You have stitched
No, I have stitched him in my soul
So deeply that we were one
When they pulled him from my grasp
I died a thousand deaths
Where were you?
Where were you then?
Slaughter all the evil
Oh God put it away
How can the soul survive the tear
When all is torn away
My pain is your pain
Our souls are linked somehow
Where, where are you now?
Tear the pain from me
It kills my soul
It takes away what I could be
It’s searing death inside of me
Why Father Why?
“This is what happens when my children disobey,
Where, oh where is my church today?
Where, oh where was the church that day?”
I’d see him walking on the hills
He doesn’t recognize my gaze
Because he is gone forever
It’s only I who sees
When he was torn out
My very self went away
And there was nothing left
Except enough frayed self to feel the pain
Nothing but the pain
So I asked again
Father where are you?
Where are you in the pain?
The blood cries out from a thousand hills
Father can you see?
It’s the last and only whimper
When tears are no more
Who, who can weep for me?
Who will take my sorrow
And bare it’s ugly wrath
When I am all alone
Defeated in this aftermath
Will weep for me
When tears are no more?
Tears are for the soul not destroyed
The rare beautiful soul
Which still possess tears
That soul is not among the hills
That soul is not here
Here we are the walking dead
So who will weep for me
Father can you see?
“My church, my church will weep for thee”
the prophet solemnly screams
“My church, my hands, my heart, my feet”
“My church will weep for thee”
Where has the church gone?
The prophet drops his head
Where oh where has the church gone
As he gazes upon the walking dead
“I am at the head,
you are feet and hands
I reside in the soul
'Where was God?' you said.”
The prophet scorned, shaking his head
The question must be instead
Where is the body
Not the head
“Weep, weep for Rwanda
Weep for every Jew
Weep for them in Somalia,
And for those among you.
And I’ll save your tears in a bottle”
The prophet cried today
“The Lord Almighty calls you to weep
To sing the weeping song
Repent for keeping silent
You, my Billion strong.”
“Deconstruct that altar
Wash away the sacrifice
Redeem the land with singing
And I will hear their cry
I, I will use it as a seed
To meet their deepest need.”
Added to the end as a post script, also on March 15, 2006, the Lord specifically said to add these lines:
Another time is brewing
There within your midst
Sound the alarm
Blow the trumpet
Begin to prepare to resist
Take up your strong arm
And wield your mighty blow
Or once again the world will weep
But this time in the snow.
I want to just make a quick note regarding this poem. In the second to last stanza where it says "Weep for every Jew,
Weep for them in Somalia,
And for those among you" as I wrote the verse in 2006 I could tell that I was speaking about the future. As I re-read the poem those lines jumped out at me as well
as a future warning. After some prayer and also some time with the folks from the House of Prayer I believe that those lines are prophetic, in that, in the near future
those people groups will experience very difficult days. As I watched the news this afternoon and listened to one of the women at the House of Prayer also comment on
the pirates in Somalia I am drawn to a sense of foreboding regarding their future. Please join me in prayer for these four people groups: Jews, Somalians, Iraqis, and those among us.
During the extended time that the Lord was revealing these upcoming events to me there were a few points that He kept reiterating to show me their importance. The first is that to fear anything but God is a sin
and actually worships the enemy. The second is that He is going to use these upcoming events to clean up the church to make it ready for what He wants to do in the near future. Part of that cleaning process is
to make sure that you are right in your heart about fear, prejudices, headship, and money. And thirdly, as mature Christians we are to be at peace, not fear, take on love, and act upon what we know is right.
If we keep Him at our center and seek to please Him in all of this we will weather the upcoming difficulties well and will in effect help those around us.
I also want to say here that when the Lord speaks through a prophet about an upcoming event it is not the prophet's job to set the plan for action, nor to lead those efforts. That is the job of the Apostles
and the Pastors. “What do we do then?” has been a common question after hearing these words, but that answer, I believe, should come from the leaders. I suggest you go to your spiritual leadership and ask
for discernment, and what they feel is an appropriate response.
If more comes I will be sure to post it on the "Word in Due Season" blog and on the
Shouts of Joy Ministries group on
Facebook. In both of those places we can discuss, process, suggest, and question, so please feel free to make comments there.
