Kitty Hawk Revelation and Waking Vision, Details, Observations and Subsequent Events
Other Aircraft Carrier Prophecies
I have had several contacts from people who have been touched by one little line I wrote
a few days ago. I wrote that I wanted to get back to serving God the way I did before I knew
What follows are some prophecies from a time when hearing from God meant more to me
than anything, including life itself. Hearing from him was more important than food or
anything else. He responded by speaking to me and showing me some things that are to come.
Sister Hollie L. Moody has, tonight, posted an article on the deep darkness of the soul. This
has prompted me to pull these old words out, for my several year period of deep darkness
followed these great revelations. It was a period of five years of darkness, before any ray of
light began to appear. Here goes!
BEGINNING TO PROPHESY
It was August 24, 1992, and Hurricane Andrew had just hit Homestead, Florida.
I was pretty full of myself. I had just written
"The name of Andrew will mark judgement in this generation
on August 24, 1992."
I had made this prediction in writing to MANY
people on July 13, 1992. One month and eleven days later, the
fulfillment came. It came to pass and people were whispering
about "THE PROPHET". People gave me a wide berth: some were a little scared of
me. I was only three months old: a baby prophet.
THE BIG VISION
On January 9, 1993, I had this long, involved vision. Initially, I
was absolutely certain it had been from the Lord. I wrote it up and
distributed it in my church. I thought it would soon come to pass,
but I waited, and nothing came. So I put it on the shelf to gather dust.
THE DETAILS-AFTER I TOOK THE VISION FROM THE DUSTY SHELF
March 23/24, 1998
This was distributed in 1998 to many people, as it is written below:
Five years and two months ago, I was taken aside by the Lord for a period of about three and one/half hours. During that
Saturday morning and early afternoon of January 9, 1993, I was given waking visions and signs to be prayerfully considered
I have also spoken to a few churches about this vision which has not come to pass: yet. Much of what I saw in January, 1993 I
could not understand. Like many prophets before me, I could only write down what I saw, feeling that at some later time, I
would be given understanding. What I did understand, I wrote and distributed. At that time, as a young prophet, I tried to think
too much and to figure everything out. I realize now that you must present what the Lord gives, even if it seemingly makes no
The word of the Lord was entitled "And A Little Child Shall Lead Them". I received absolutely no feedback from this word,
except that I think most people who read it thought me to be a madman. To the natural mind, a nuclear attack by an Arab
country against the United States appears to be preposterous. Nevertheless, that is what I saw!
To summarize, I said at that time that on the 17th day of some future month, the U.S. Aircraft Carrier Kitty Hawk and
supporting vessels would be destroyed by a surprise attack of cruise missiles. I said that the descendants of Ishmael would do
this thing. This event will commence the Great Tribulation. I also wrote that judgement was coming to California. America is to
be brought down as Obadiah's eagle by the Lord. That is the part I understood, and that is what I released to a handful of
I took detailed notes that accumulated to eight typewritten pages of what I observed and understood that day. In my notes
where I recorded my experiences of 1/09/93, I recorded that the Lord was saying that Bill Clinton's Presidency would be cut
off. I wrote the word "impeached?", with the question mark following it.
Also, concerning my notes of what the Lord showed me concerning California judgements, the judgements were associated
with almonds, which I now regard as meaning that these will be the first to occur because this is what this image meant when
God showed it to Jeremiah. Over and over again, in association with the California judgements, the Lord showed me chocolate
milk and milk chocolate. I could not understand what the Lord was saying.
Tonight, as I was moved to review my notes of over five years ago, the Lord began speaking and giving me further revelation.
This is what I was newly shown:
1) The judgements against California will precede all the other judgements and will be the first indication that the sequence of the
whole revelation is about to occur. These immediately began to occur in 1993.
2) The Lord caused me to title the 1/09/93 prophecy "And A Little Child Shall Lead Them" because of what would happen in
winter 1997 and spring 1998. "El Nino" would precede, or come before them. It could have read, "And El Nino Shall Lead
Them". This began to be fulfilled in October, 1997.
3) The chocolate milk images I saw at that time are pictures of the terrible mudslides that are occurring in California right now as a
byproduct of "El Nino." This was fulfilled in February and March, 1998.
4) Impeachment proceedings will be then be brought against President Bill Clinton. This has not yet been fulfilled, although rumours
and charges began to circulate in March, 1998. (NOTE: FULFILLED NOVEMBER, 1998)
5) While America and the President are distracted with these impeachment proceedings,the Persian Gulf fleet, headed by the U.S.
Aircraft Carrier Kitty Hawk, will be attacked by nuclear warhead tipped cruise missile in the Persian Gulf. The Lord said that
descendants of Ishmael will do this thing. It will occur in near proximity of time to the impeachment proceedings.
6) These events will trigger great tribulation. America will cease to function as a military power and will be brought down in
fulfillment of the prophecies of Obadiah in one day.
What are we Americans to do? Pray! Perhaps the Lord may repent from doing this to our nation if we humble ourselves, pray,
turn from our wicked ways and seek his face. Biblically speaking, there is no mention of America, so it is not required that the
destruction of America must commence the great tribulation.
PUBLIC PRESENTATION OF THE VISION-April 16, 1998
This was done at the International Board Meeting of World Salt Foundation. Finally, it
was done. The vision had been released to the public. The Lord had pressed it out of me.
When I returned to my office on April 19, 1998, a fax was waiting for me, on my desk. My
friend, Art Cormier, had copied some details from a Navy website, regarding three Russian
Kilo class subs. These subs had been sold to Iran. As Art was pointing out, these subs carry
anti-ship missiles. Already, Iran had also purchased the Sunburn missile, for which the US
has no electronic countermeasure. Brother Art had written on the fax: "Steve, your dream is
getting ready." Art had no idea I had taken this vision off the shelf, but the Lord knew, and it
was another confirmation that the date was drawing nearer.
MY NEWSLETTER OF JULY, 1999-THE KITTY HAWK VISION REVEALED IN SCRIPTURE
On January 9, 1993, while I was a member of Cornerstone Church in Davie, FL, I received a 3 and 1/2 hour waking vision and
word of prophecy. To reduce it down to the salient points, it was revealed to me that:
a. The Little Child, or "El Nino" would precede the judgements against America
b. The initial judgements were said to be against California
c. These California judgements were shown to me in the form of milk chocolate. (This was later confirmed by mudslides in
d. President Clinton would be impeached. (Fulfilled in late 1998)
e. The US aircraft carrier "Kitty Hawk" and 11 supporting vessels will be destroyed in the Persian Gulf by an attack perpetrated
by the "descendants of Ishmael". I saw nuclear cruise missiles approach and destroy the Kitty Hawk and all of her airplanes and
accompanying ships and I heard the number killed: 12,600. I was told that this would happen on the 17th day of some future
month. I was led to believe that it would occur very nearly in proximity of time to the impeachment of Clinton. I was also filled
with the feeling in my spirit that it would operate as the falling first domino of many in a sudden downfall and judgement of
On April 21, 1999, the U.S. Aircraft carrier KITTY HAWK entered the Persian Gulf.
***PROPHECY-10 HORNED BEAST
The June 4, 1999, the Washington Post and New York Times online announced that the 15 nations of the European Union
have decided to become a military power. They have authorized the TEN militarily aligned nations of the EU to build a military
and they have named Javier Solana as their "Tsar". Europe will now have a "TEN HORNED" military power. (Revelation 13:1)
The ten militarily aligned nations are former Roman Empire outposts. On that same day, the Lord drew me to Numbers 24:24
and gave me insight into the meaning of this verse. My Persian Gulf revelation is now found in scripture. Balaam saw in waking
vision "Chittim" afflicting "Asshur" and "Eber" with ships. Geographically, Asshur and Eber correspond to Iraq. Chittim, to the
Jew, was anyone living on an Island or a Western Coastland. (Josephus 1.6.1) Chittim, as pronounced by the Hebrew, is
"KITTY". KITTY HAWK!
MY THOUGHTS ON 11/17/1999-WHY IS THE KITTY HAWK STILL HERE?
I thought all of this would happen on February 17, 1993. When it did
not, I assumed I had missed the Lord. I put the vision on the shelf
for a little more than five years and did not say much about it.
Basically, I tried to recover from what I thought had been a prophetic disaster and I set
about to just serve the Lord in jail ministry and preaching in the
ghetto as an evangelist. I put aside all this PROPHET stuff, as best
Then, in March, 1998, the Lord spoke to me, reviving this vision and
giving me further proof that it was from him, bringing more detail to
me and showing me that 3/5 of what I had seen had already been fulfilled.
Later that year, the fourth part, Clinton's impeachment, came to pass.
The Lord never said that the nuclear attack against the Kitty Hawk
would be simultaneous with the impeachment, although at one time, I thought
that. I was looking for it right after the impeachment.
I fully expected the event to happen right after the impeachment. The intervening time
took me by surprise again but did not shake me up nearly as badly. It sent
me back to the Lord., where he reminded me exactly what he had said, not
what I thought it had meant.
He spoke again this year in 1999, giving me further revelation and confirming that yes, it
would be the Kitty Hawk, for I had inquired of the Lord whether the Kitty Hawk was symbolic
of any aircraft carrier, or if it would actually be that specific ship.
With regard to impeachment and distraction, we are still reeling from
the effect of the impeachment. We have a lame duck president. Nobody
wants to do anything with him. We are definitely still "distracted"
by the impeachment. Why else would nobody care about Chinagate? Gore,
his potential predecessor, is also effected by the impeachment, trying to
distance himself from connection to Clinton.
Also, the Lord never gave me an exact date, only the 17th of some
future month. That is definitely not predicting a date. It is giving a
prophecy in part. It is my FEELING that February is the highest risk
month. That is me and not the Lord. It is based upon my feeling
about the days of Noah and Genesis 7:11.
Finally, yes, I am quite certain that sometime, probably soon, The
U.S.S Kitty Hawk will be attacked by a low flying missile that will hug to
the water and move to the left and then to the right to avoid being shot
down. From the vision I had, I can conclude that it happens slightly
before dawn, at first light, just before the sun comes up, or during
twilight, after the sun has gone down. This will happen in the
Persian Gulf. The descendants of Ishmael will do this thing. The Kitty Hawk
along with the rest of the fleet will be destroyed.
The question then arises, how long will this country be distracted by
the impeachment? I guess the answer is, as long as it effects the way
we treat our president and how it effects whether or not we trust him.
How long was the country "distracted" by Nixon's resignation?
Right now, if Clinton wants to commit our military, a substantial
portion of Congress is looking to see where he is lying. They assume
that he has some ulterior motive for taking military action. There
have been accusations that Clinton committed our military in Serbia and
Afghanistan as a distraction, not because of real American interest in
those areas. Some of these accusations appear to be well founded.
I wept for twelve hours uncontrollably after I
had this vision on January 9, 1993. I sat, turned my face to the wall
and wept all night. I have had many many words from the Lord and
other visions, but I have never had anything from the Lord that even comes
close to that 3 and 1/2 hours I spent on that day and the day after I
spent recovering from it..
Nobody wants to pray this country out of it more than me. I saw the
faces of the sailors on the deck. Some fell to their knees, calling
on God. I felt their fear and their terror. I WAS THERE! I have urged
people to pray for mercy. I do it again now.
THOUGHTS ON APRIL 11, 2001
The Kitty Hawk is still with us, stationed in Japan. The Lord has granted space. It has been more than eight
years since I received the vision and the words. The Lord has not revealed to me that there
has been any cancellation of the word. He has not repented of it.
The weapon that I saw in my vision now exists and is in the hands of several enemies of the
US. In the Persian Gulf, Iran possesses many Sunburn missiles. In the Pacific, China now
has two Sovremmeny destroyers that carry the same missile. Due to the actions of the Clinton
administration, America still has no electronic countermeasure against these missiles.
The possession of these weapons by our enemies is further evidence to me that we are nearing
the time of fulfillment of this vision.
Time has passed and I have outgrown the need to be right. I realize that as a New Testament
prophet, God will forgive and has forgiven me for anything I added to what I have written
concerning this vision that might have arisen from my soul and mind, and not from him.
And yet, I'm remembering how raw and green I was: how little I knew. But, oh, how filled
with zeal I was to please my Lord.
Will the great tribulation begin, as I prophesied, when this event occurs? I'm trying to remember
back to just what the Lord told me and how he told me. I'm not even sure anymore. But of
this one thing I am certain: the attack will be a complete and utter surprise, and it will be
the first falling domino of many to follow that will trouble America.
