Dear WPA and Others:
I feel a strong desire in my spirit to organize and present these words that came forth from
the Lord on November 1, 2001 and in the few days preceding. Contributions were made to
what I received by David Skelly, fellow member of Watchmen-
This warning needed to be organized, and placed on my website prior
to the 17th of November, 2001,
because the warning is very serious, and is a certain communication from the Lord that the
vision and words I received from the Lord on January 9, 1993 concerning the destruction
of the USS Kitty Hawk and supporting fleet on some future 17th day of a month are still on
the Lord's timetable
for future fulfillment.
Given that Ramadan begins on November 17th this year, I am
watching and praying concerning these prophesied future events. In presenting this, I make
no prediction concerning November 17, 2001, other than to say that current events seem to
be lining up in ways that suggest that fulfillment of what I saw in 1993 is very near.
You can follow that whole story at
USS Kitty Hawk Vision
And now, for the discussion that was recently posted at Watchmen-Prophets-Assembly concerning
the reminder the Lord has given concerning these things.
Sometimes, the Lord gives me reminder or refresher words that reinforce
or emphasize previous words or visions.
Such a thing happened on August 12, 2001, when the Lord gave me a
reminder, for emphasis, concerning the vision I had of the destruction
of the USS Kitty Hawk.
Yesterday, he gave me another, similar reminder word.
it was Isaiah 14...and in it was a reminder, from
the Lord, to me, that the USS Kitty Hawk vision is still in place for
I make no predictions as to timing of this event, but I feel that it
will occur soon, as the other 4 parts of the vision have already been

Dear David and WPA:
I wrote that little piece yesterday in a limited space of
time. When I sent it, I knew that I would have to say more
to explain it, because the Holy Spirit said just what you said, in that I had to
reason for Isaiah 14 to relate to the vision.
On January 9, 1993, the visions that came to me happened as
I was led around, from place to place, by my little
children, playing what began as a game that was started by
the Holy Spirit, called "A Little Child Shall Lead Them".
At one point, my oldest daughter Lorel, who was at that time
11 years old, wanted to go to KMart, and so we went there.
She wanted to see a new video game that had just been put
out. It was a game called SEGA Genesis Sonic Hedgehog.
When we walked up to this game, I had the inner vision of
the USS Kitty Hawk, with cruise missiles approaching, that I
have described in detail elsewhere.
For some reason known only to the Lord, I had never sought
for the word "hedgehog" in the scripture, until October 29,
2001. I picked up Isaiah 14, in the RSV. I do not
normally read the RSV. The RSV is the only version I have
found that includes the word "hedgehog" in verse 23. When I
saw the word "hedgehog", the vision came flooding back to me
in vivid detail.
And so...that is the rest of the story David...in how Isaiah
14 was related by the Lord to the vision.

Post#3 (By David Skelly)
Dear Stephen and WPA
Thanks very much Stephen for your reply.
There is much more to this than meets the eye.
The Hebrew word behind
RSV translation of hedgehog is qipod. I will now write down what
Hebrew Lexicons say.
1) The New Brown-Driver-Briggs-Gesenius
Hebrew-English Lexicon says the following for qipod. Qipod [noun
masculine] porcupine (from rolling itself together) Is 14:23, Is
34:11. The verbal form for qipod is qaphad. The lexicon entry
qaphad is as follows. Qaphad [verb Piel] gather together, roll up
(Arabic wind turban snugly; Aramaic qephad Ithpe. be drawn in,
together; also qupheda porcupine;........;-Perfect Ist singular
qiphadetiy Is 38:12I have rolled up, like a weaver, my life (ie
finished it.......)....This lexicon is seen as the best commonly
available lexicon by scholars.
2) The Gesenius' Hebrew-Chaldee
to the Old Testament says the following for qipod. Qipod
hedgehog, so called from its shrinking together, Isa 14:23; 34:11;
Zeph 2:14 (Arabic.....Syriac.....Ethiopic......:porcupine). This
lexicon has the following entry for qaphad the verbal form.
draw together, to shrink (Arabic......identical) Hence qipod a
hedgehog. Piel, to make shrink; hence to cut off, like the Ch.,
38:12,......"I have cut off, like a weaver, my life."...... Hence-
qaphad or qephad with h paragog. qephadah a cutting off,
Eze. 7:25.The Gesenius Lexicon was the supreme lexicon of the
3) The Lexicon in Veteris Testamenti Libros
(Koehler/Baumgartner) has the following entry for qipod. Qipod
1. Igel hedgehog Erinaceus auritus u. E. sacer...... Is 14:23;
2. Eule short-eared owl Asio flammens.......The lexicon has this

The lexicon has this
entry qephadah. Qephadah.... anguish Ez 7:25.... The strong number

hedgehog, porcupine and owl. The NIV uses renders qipod as owl.

This word, hedgehog, now connects With Ezekiel 7:25. On August 12,
2001, I received a word from the Lord: the entirety of Ezekiel 7.
I posted it on my website and here at WPA on that date. The word was
entitled: "The End Has Come Upon America". The link is below.
Thanks for the excellent help with the scholarship David.

There is one more aspect of this whole "unveiling" that has impressed
me today. Certainly, there was more here than met the eye.
The Lord, moving through David Skelly, has
showed me how it relates to Ezekiel 7:25 through a common Hebrew root
word, which can alternately be rendered as hedgehog, porcupine, owl,
anguish, terror or destruction.
On August 12, 2001, the first thing the Lord spoke to me on that
night, as I was walking toward Lincoln Road in Miami
Beach is: "do not eat or drink anything in this place". When the
Lord said this to me, I was filled with....Holy Fear. There was
absolutely no way...no way at all that I was going to drink so much as
a sip from a water fountain in that place, but I knew that I had to
tour it. Then, a bit later, he spoke the word concerning Ezekiel 7 to
The Lord has impressed upon me that Holy Fear is appropriate now, and
it is what he has been saying to me at other times: it is a time to
step away and clear from all defilements. I believe we really need to
be seeking the Lord, in this hour, for guidance and help in stepping
away from these things that may not be ordinarily sinful, but are
particularly defiling for the prophet in this hour.
I am currently meditating in the word on this aspect of Holy Fear, and
I expect to write more about it.
It is a time when God wants to pour more of His power through His
servants. The behaviour of an obedient Nazrite might not be a bad
model to emulate in many respects.
