Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Not since THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST given to the apostle John on the Isle of Patmos some 1900 years ago has there been a more awe-inspiring vision concerning the end of our presint age than the predictive material presented in THE VISION: A TERRIFYING PROPHECY OF DOOMSDAY THAT IS STARTING TO HAPPEN NOW! (New York: Pyramid Books, 1974) by David Wilkerson. This 143-page "mass-market paperback" edition has as its contents: an Introduction, eight chapters, and two appendices describing the details of a vision experienced by the now emeritus Pastor Wilkerson (Times Square Church, New York City) during a late-night time of prayer in April 1973.

In the first five chapters, readers will learn about the "five tragic calamities coming upon the earth." In order: (1) "Economic Confusion" with sevety-three related predictions; (2) "Drastic Weather Changes and Earthquakes" with fifty-four predictions; (3) "A Flood of Filth" (an allusion to moral collapse) containing ninety-two predictions; (4) "The Number One Youth Problem of the Future" with thirty-six predictions; and (5) "Persecution Madness" against 'born-again' Christians and 'Spirit-baptized' Roman Catholics with ninety-one predictions. These 'prediction counts' are my own, and are taken informally from the narrative text and may vary from reader-to-reader, but are helpful indicators of emphasis. Serving illustrative purpose are a number of related biblical predictions of God's judgments upon Israel and Judah in the eighth and sixth centuries B.C. These biblical references to God's judgments are NOT included in my informal chapter-by-chapter prediction counts.

I had heard about this little book off-and-on since the mid-seventies, but had never managed to read it for myself until March 2007.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I first heard this book at the age of 14 way back in the 1970s. It was a tape of the Sermon Dave Wilkerson gave which later formed the basis of the book. What we heard astounded us...it didn't seem possible back then that pornography would be so wide spread, and that the church would become so corrupt (in places)...but we took it seriously because we respected him. The most particular and interesting prophesy I found was that the "Iron curtain" would come down (in order to get the gospel into the Eastern Block) in the mid 70s this was just unthinkable; but it happened. (He goes onto predict it will go back up with a vengeance).

Through all these years with all the tumultuous things that have happened I have tried to do what Wilkerson suggests and look up and say "God in in Control" there is a strange comfort to the predicted coming true, it seems to act as a buffer because I supposed forwarned is forarmed.

I am a big critic of modern day prophets and doomsayers. I found this book lying around my mom's house (world's biggest sucker for so-called prophets)began to read this 1970's book. Mr. Wilkerson apparently was based on a vision from God to him about the future of America. By reading the book you could tell Wilkerson believed his vision would come true no later than the seventies. Here it is 1999 and the US is still here as prosperous as ever, however, some of Wilkerson's predictions are eerily becoming true. Here are the ones that caught my attention.
1. Pornography will become available inside households through means of technology.
2. Children will become filled with anger and begin doing highly publicized acts of violence and all of the country would be trying to figure out why.
3. Natural diasters will greatly increase in the United States.
Those were the predictions that I thought were frightenly accurate. The vision is filled with many other predictions which have not happened (I suppose Wilkerson would say at least not yet.) He talks about our economic collapse, fires across the country, some 1984ish type of government emerging. So although I would not spend more than a few bucks on this 1970's book, I would recommend you check it out to see what you make of this guy's predictions which seem to becoming true.

I heard about David Wilkerson's vision in the early 70's and in fact had a copy of the album (yes album) he delivered it to a Lutheran conference in the early 70's in Minneapolis, MN. It had a profound affect on me and my husband and in fact I still recall the dire predictions and have seen many come true over the years.

You don't have to agree with Wilkerson's religion, but you should read the vision as an insight into what the Lord was revealing to him. He was obedient to deliver it to the church and if the church is so apostate that it can't receive it (which is exactly what was in the vision back in 1973) God help us!

I'm going to take a refresher course and re-read "The Vision" because so much has come true already. The great upheavals in the weather (Hello Katrina) the homosexual movement, the extreme change in the family (no one would have believed it true back in the 70's-remember The Wonder Years, that's how we looked at things). It is definately a "vision" that God has given the church to help her make sense of the things to come, and I have used it as such over the past 22 years. I recommend it, and you can decide for yourself if it hasn't been right on the money these past 20 some years.
