The vision/prophecy below was seen and written by David Wilkerson in his 1973 book, The Vision. It is of Satan’s slander and gossip war against true ministers and faithful brethren.
A Gossip War – 15
I know that Satan has declared war on every true minister of Jesus Christ. He will leave no stone unturned in an attempt to discredit and shipwreck every man of God who is determined to stay true. Those ministers and priests who refuse to cheat on their wives, who refuse to indulge in the freedom of the new morality, are going to be the target of the most vicious gossip of all times. Satan is going to raise up “gossip mongers” to harass, malign and lie against them.
I believe that Billy Graham and other great gospel ministers throughout the world are going to face more and more ridicule, gossip, and misunderstanding by the press and by liberal people in the media.Every motive will be questioned and suspected. Every statement will be examined and cross examined.
Ministers who thought they had no enemies in the world will wake up and discover that someone is talking about them. Pastors of churches are going to face the most malicious gossip of all. Innuendos,lies, and false statements that will be floating around will come from the very pits of Hell.
It will be a supernatural demonstration of demonic powers. Not a single true minister of the gospel will be immune. The wives of ministers who are married will also come under attack.
Legions of lying spirits have been turned loose upon the world with the single purpose of accusing Christians through gossip and slander. This gossip war will not only be aimed against ministers of the gospel but against all true believers of Jesus Christ, of all colors and creeds.
Many of the visions/prophecies of this book have been or are being fulfilled; others are still future. David’s interpretations of Revelation in this book are pretty traditional and letter. This slander war revelation above is being fulfilled all over the world, as witnesses from different countries have stated to us. At this stage, the slander is mostly coming from professing Christians who have selfish ambitions to make disciples for themselves through faction and slander. In confirmation of David’s word above, we were told many times a few years ago in prophecy and dreams, some below, that an army of demons would attempt to destroy UBM and myself as a type of the Davids and Unleavened Bread people. This attempt has failed but it has left much fruit. We were delivered of a few who could be tempted with such things and are praying for them. These were delivered to spirits of witchcraft and slander but we were left with a people who forgive quickly and love stronger and give grace longer and live holier, as a defense against the army of demons. I have never been in an assembly which loves each other and loves to fellowship and care for each other more than this one.
