These are extracts from 2 articles (2003 &2005) with quotes by Howard Storm in Spirit Daily about the Future of USA written by Michael Brown.http://www.spiritdaily.org/Life-after-life/Stormconversion1.htm
More direct, still, were the prophecies of a former atheist and college professor named Howard Storm -- who underwent a brush with death after the rupture of his duodenum in 1985 and claims that during that episode, in which he was headed for what he describes as hell, he was rescued by Jesus and then placed in the company of three angels who showed him aspects of America's future.
"They made it very clear to me that God had given this country the greatest blessing of any people in the history of the world," said Dr. Storm, who is from the Cincinnati area. "We have more of God's blessing. Everything that we have comes from God. We didn't deserve it, we didn't earn it, but we happen to be the wealthiest, most powerful nation in the world. And God gave us all this so that we could be the instruments of God's light in this world, and we are not instruments of light. In other countries people see us as purveyors of exploitation, military might, and pornography. They see us as completely hedonistic and amoral -- we have no morality. People can do whatever they want wherever they want with whatever they want. Our amorality is a cancer on the rest of the world, and God created us to be just the opposite.
"People get mad at me for saying it, but God is very unhappy with what we're doing," adds Storm, now a Methodist minister. "When I came back from the experience I was almost out of my mind trying to convert people. God wanted a worldwide conversion thousands of years ago. God pulled out all the stops 2,000 years ago with Jesus. From God's view, that was the definitive moment in human history. And the impact of the prophets and teachers and the Messiah has been a big disappointment to God because people have by and large rejected it. I was told that God wants this conversion. And if we don't get with the program fairly soon, He is going to have to intervene in some ways that from a human point of view are going to seem cataclysmic. God is really tired of what we're doing to one another and the planet and to His Creation. We were put in this world to be stewards and live in harmony with His creation and one another and we don't realize the important spiritual consequences of what we do when we raise a child in a faithless society.
'I asked how [purification] would come about, and they said it would be simple, that our society is very dependent on a lot of very fragile things -- energy grid, transportation," Storm told Spirit Daily more than two years ago. "In each geographical area of the United States people used to be relatively self-sufficient as far as agricultural products. Now, how long would any state survive without the transport of food and energy?
"What would happen is
these very complex and delicate grids of our economic system would begin to
break down. We've created a society of such cruel and self-centered people that
the very nature of civilization would begin to break down. The angels showed me
that what would happen is that people would begin robbing the grocery stores,
hording goods, and killing one another for gasoline and tires, and as a
consequence everything would break down and would end up in chaos."
Unfortunately, they were demons. According to Dr. Storm, once he was saved from the pit by Jesus, he was left in the company of seven [..typo for several?-- T..] angels who reviewed his life and showed him glimpses of America's future.
What Storm saw was a breakdown in the infrastructure of America. We like to be upbeat, but we also have to tell it like it is, or at least as it is according to certain of those who have experienced what seem like authentically unusual experiences.
"They told me that God was very unhappy with the course of human history and was going to intervene to change the world," says Dr. Storm. "God had watched us sink to depths of depravity and cruelty at the very same time that God was giving us the instruments to make the world a Godlier world."
Storm said he was told that we had regressed back, time after time, to the brutality of the Roman Empire. No country had been blessed as much as the U.S., the angels allegedly said to him, and yet the nation had failed to share its blessings with the rest of the world in the way that God intended.
We report; you discern.
"The United States has been given more of everything than any other country in the history of the world and it has failed to be generous with the gifts," one angel allegedly told Storm. "If the United States continues to exploit the rest of the world by greedily consuming the world's resources, the United States will have God's blessing withdrawn. Your country will collapse economically which will result in civil chaos. Because of the greedy nature of the people, you will have people killing people for a cup of gasoline. The world will watch in horror as your country is obliterated by strife."
