    REVISED March 17, 2017

    I became convinced during my conversion in 1987 that the return of the Lord was near. These aspects of the bible greatly occupied my mind as I read the bible through over and over again, many times during those first years.

    During 1990, I met a man named Art Cormier. Art was a butcher: a meat cutter in Fort Lauderdale. God was showing him some incredible things. He was having trouble getting people to pay attention to him, for he was receiving warnings about America's future and great trouble to come. His English grammar was not very good, but I quickly saw the importance of what he was receiving and I felt called to help him, so, in a sense, I became his scribe. I began doing prophetic newsletters then, mainly filled with what Art was seeing. God led me to call them the "Gammadim Reports", after Ezekiel 27:11.

    I recall one event that changed me forever. It was June 18, 1991. I had just visited the location of my previous employer at 666 71st Street. I had been showing a friend that place and laughing about the numerical address. I pulled my car into my office parking lot at 6 P.M.: the 18th hour of the 18th day of the 6th month of 1991---can you see all those sixes. Art Cormier was waiting for me. He handed me a revelation he had received that America was going to be hit in the future by a Russian attack of SS18 nuclear missiles. Russia has named these missiles "SS18 Satan". Art had no idea where I had been---he had no idea that I had just come from 666 71st street. He had not even noticed the 18th hour of the day. He had not even noticed that it was 6/18, but I did immediately.

    Right around this time in mid 1991, I had an open vision while I was sitting in Church. I have called it my DEFINING VISION and it is the next stop on this newcomer's tour. I do not remember the exact date I had that vision because at the first, I did not even begin to understand how it could possibly have been from the Lord, for, to me, it did not make sense at the time. I was a member of a church where demons were being cast out, all the spiritual gifts were functioning and prophecy was going forth from the pulpit, yet Jesus told me in that vision that He regarded my church as a THING, and that He had not built it. So, for a time, I told no one about the vision. I came to understand later just how different God is from a man: God wants to give birth to those ministries and ministers that serve Him and He wants all of us to follow His instructions. We become rogue and rebellious when we fail to do so. God may choose to speak to us, heal through us or cast out devils through us and then, after all that, still throw us into Hell because we never knew Him. He considers those who serve Him in an unauthorized or rebellious way to be evil doers. God is complicated!

    During February, 1992, the Lord God called me to a fast of forty days on water alone. I prayed to know the purpose of my fast. The Lord revealed that I was fasting for something that had not been seen on the Earth for a long time: the anointing of Elisha. I completed that fast in March, 1992 and a few months later, God spoke to me at about 9 P.M on June 24, 1992, calling me after the order of the prophet Jeremiah as a prophet to the nations. I have been called to many long periods of fasting and prayer since that time that lasted from seventeen to twenty four days. The entirety of the first chapter of Jeremiah was given to me at that time and I was led to understand that many things, events and times in my life would parallel the life of Jeremiah and it has been so thus far. The call of God was quickened to me as I read it in the New American Standard Version:

    Jeremiah 1
    New American Standard Bible (NASB)
    Jeremiah’s Call and Commission
    1 The words of Jeremiah the son of Hilkiah, of the priests who were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin, 2 to whom the word of the Lord came in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign. 3 It came also in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, until the end of the eleventh year of Zedekiah the son of Josiah, king of Judah, until the exile of Jerusalem in the fifth month.

    4 Now the word of the Lord came to me saying,

    5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”

    6 Then I said, “Alas, Lord God! Behold, I do not know how to speak, Because I am a youth.”

    7 But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ Because everywhere I send you, you shall go, And all that I command you, you shall speak. 8 “Do not be afraid of them, For I am with you to deliver you,” declares the Lord.

    9 Then the Lord stretched out His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me: “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. 10 “See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, To pluck up and to break down, To destroy and to overthrow, To build and to plant.”

    The Almond Rod and Boiling Pot
    11 The word of the Lord came to me saying, “What do you see, Jeremiah?” And I said, “I see a rod of an almond tree.” 12 Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it.”

    13 The word of the Lord came to me a second time saying, “What do you see?” And I said, “I see a boiling pot, facing away from the north.” 14 Then the Lord said to me, “Out of the north the evil will break forth on all the inhabitants of the land. 15 For, behold, I am calling all the families of the kingdoms of the north,” declares the Lord; “and they will come and they will set each one his throne at the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem, and against all its walls round about and against all the cities of Judah. 16 I will pronounce My judgments on them concerning all their wickedness, whereby they have forsaken Me and have offered sacrifices to other gods, and worshiped the works of their own hands. 17 Now, gird up your loins and arise, and speak to them all which I command you. Do not be dismayed before them, or I will dismay you before them. 18 Now behold, I have made you today as a fortified city and as a pillar of iron and as walls of bronze against the whole land, to the kings of Judah, to its princes, to its priests and to the people of the land. 19 They will fight against you, but they will not overcome you, for I am with you to deliver you,” declares the Lord.
