Well, later on, I want to share some of the things that I believe
the Lord showed me. And I say it with humility. We see
through a glass darkly. So I will share some of those findings from
a recent prayer retreat that I had. And I like to do this at the
first of the year to kind of say, "Here's what I feel or I feel the Lord
is saying is going to happen."
TERRY MEEUWSEN: We had a wonderful
time of prayer as we ushered in the new year yesterday.
PAT ROBERTSON: Oh, marvelous.
TERRY MEEUWSEN: It was great.
PAT ROBERTSON: Yes.
(Tease next segment, go to break, feature
story on the year ahead in Washington)
Well, we'll be talking about that. And I think people, Terry, are
interested in finding out, since we're talking about 2007 — I've
been away for a prayer retreat. And I've put these things out with humility,
but nevertheless, I have a relatively good track record. Sometimes
TERRY MEEUWSEN: And without
doubt, every year, as you seek God, I guess this is His promise to all
of us. But as you go away and seek Him for the coming year, God shows you
some amazing things.
The first thing, Terry, that I think is God's Word to His people,
to the believers worldwide, not just here in America, and the promise
this year  is going to be
a year of extraordinary miracles. And if I'm hearing
the Lord right, there are such extraordinary things that are going to take
place: victory over demonic powers, victory of healing,
some dramatic miracles taking place in people's lives. And the Lord
said it's going to seem to the people like Heaven has come down
to earth. It's going to be that good. It's going to
be really an extraordinary demonstration of God's power.
other thing I felt was that evil men, evil people, are going
to try to
The other thing
He said was that this is the final year  of the great
demonstration of His grace to the world. For the last
12 years [1995 - 2006], we have evangelism unprecedented in
countries like India and Indonesia and Nigeria and
so forth. And CBN right now, we have recorded somewhere in the neighborhood
of 461 million decisions since the fall of communism. Well, that
is going to come, I think, to an end, at least that great
do evil things to us and to others
during the last part of this year. I don't know whether
it'll be in the fall or September or later on, but
it'll be the second half, somehow, of 2007.
TERRY MEEUWSEN: I think that
that rang resonant in everyone's heart, as they looked at it and realized
that when something big happens . . . .
There will be some very serious terrorist
attacks. The evil people will come after this country
[America]. And there's a possibility that — not a possibly, a definite
certainty that chaos is going to rule, and the Lord said
that the politicians will not have any solutions for it.
There's just going to be chaos. And, of course, we saw chaos in the
Gulf [states] after Katrina. The politicians had no answers.
PAT ROBERTSON: We're not ready.
TERRY MEEUWSEN: . . . . there's
It's going to happen.
And I'm not saying necessarily nuclear.
The Lord didn't say "nuclear," but I do believe it'll be something like
that that'll be a mass killing, possibly millions of people, major
cities injured. I hope I'm wrong, and I hope people will pray
and that won't happen. But nevertheless, that seems to be what's
coming up. And then the Lord said He will restrain
the evil people, but He will not restrain them necessarily
initially. And He doesn't have to restrain people. They're
evil people, and they do evil things, and they desire evil.
The other thing on my
heart and on His heart is the nation of Israel.
And what He says was the United States
pretends to be the supporter of Israel, but that we are
pushing Israel toward national suicide, our policies are
pushing Israel toward national suicide. And He also said that the
policies of the current Israeli administration are, quote,
"toxic" for the nation of Israel. So the last couple of years
He has said that we're entering into the most dangerous time in the history
of Israel. That has been born out by this last war they [
Israel ] had. It's clear that another war, sooner or later, is coming.
But the word was that the Olmert policies were "toxic," "toxic"
for the nation of Israel, and that the United States was feigning
friendship but pushing them toward national suicide.
So these are some of the things.
The other thing is
that there's going to be a great anointing of His Spirit
upon His people.
The believers are going to have
just an extraordinary time.
And the last word
that I got was on New Year's Day. And that took from the tenth
chapter of Ezra, when, you remember, the Jewish people had come back
from captivity. The Lord had given them a little respite, and, lo
and behold, they immediately began to break His word and to intermarry
with the heathen people. And Ezra was overwhelmed, the scribe, and
he called for a national repentance. And he said, "You've
got to put away from you this evil." Well, I thought,
"How does this apply to us?"
And the truth is that the Christians
particularly have intermarried with the evil. We have television
that is just full of evil. We have motion pictures full of
evil. Not only violence, but sexuality and permissiveness.
Then, on the Internet, we have all kinds of evil that people
are allowing themselves to get into. And then, more
than that, there's this air of materialism where we're caught up
in it. And it was as if God is saying, "You've got to put away
from yourself those heathen influences that are taking over.
Because I'm going to do something wonderful for you, but it's not
going to happen unless you put away the heathen influences."
So I believe that ['s
how] it's going to be — these first few months [of 2007], I'm looking
forward to it. It's going to be an extraordinary time, and
we should expect miracles beyond our wildest fantasies in the first
six months [of 2007]. And after then, chaotic.
And we'll be talking in subsequent programs about some of the things that
you might do specifically. But the idea is what the Bible says, "Seek
humility, seek righteousness, that you may be hid in
the day of that wrath." [ Zep
2:3 ] And I think we need to be . . . .
TERRY MEEUWSEN: And to not
PAT ROBERTSON: Oh, why should
we be afraid?
TERRY MEEUWSEN: God is in
PAT ROBERTSON: God, He's in
charge of the whole thing.
TERRY MEEUWSEN: Exactly.
And so, if you get blown up or something, you go to Heaven,
and that's the worst thing that'll happen to you. [ 2Co
5:6-9 ] But we have evil people in the world. And there's
a cleric in Saudi Arabia who has issued a fatwa that gave Osama bin
Laden the permission to kill ten million people in the
West. A cleric. He said, "Under Islamic law,
I find that you have permission to kill ten million people." And
one of the leaders of Iran was saying, "Well, if we go to war with Israel,
and Israel annihilates us and we annihilate them, if it costs 18 million
dead, it'll be worth it if we can destroy Israel."
Now, we're dealing with people who think that way. The fact that
they might do a job on Chicago or Los Angeles or Washington or New York,
we shouldn't be surprised, because they're evil people.
TERRY MEEUWSEN: Well, they've
said that's their intention.
They've said that's what they're going to do. But God said
He's going to restrain the evil, but He isn't necessarily
going to restrain it from the beginning.
TERRY MEEUWSEN: Right.
ROBERTSON: And so, a lot of these things can be reversed.
We just need to do a lot of praying. But I think seek
righteousness, seek humility, and we'll be passing out some
tips about what to do in case of disaster.
I didn't get a whole lot of word about
natural disasters [in 2007]. Last year [in 2006], the Lord
said the coasts would be lashed by storms. Not necessarily hurricanes,
but lashed. Up in New England, lashed. Denver — well not (the)
coast, but the Pacific Northwest. And then, of course, over in the Philippines,
two typhoons, one right after the other. Coasts around have been
lashed by storms. I don't know that we're going to have a great many
natural disasters [in 2007], at least I don't have any message in terms
^ Events surrounding this prophecy.
TERRY MEEUWSEN: It'd be nice
to have a respite in that area after all this.
PAT ROBERTSON: Well, I can't
guarantee it; I just didn't hear anything. Okay.
