O sleeper? Arise!

I try to be a realist and not a “doomist” when it comes to Bible prophecy. As a matter of fact, I know little about Bible prophecy. Looking back at the times in which the Lord spoke significant “end times” or “judgments” types of words to me, I can count them on one hand.

About six to eight years ago an Indian preacher (from India) by the name of Glen Cunningham was invited to minister at “Church on the Rock” in Albuquerque, NM. He came with a word for the church in the USA. God had told him that the American church was the “O sleeper” in the book of Jonah verse five. Jonah was the “O sleeper” and the American church was Jonah.

Jonah 1:5 Then the mariners were afraid, and cried every man unto his god, and cast forth the wares that were in the ship into the sea, to lighten it of them. But Jonah was gone down into the sides of the ship; and he lay, and was fast asleep.6 So the shipmaster came to him, and said unto him, What meanest thou, O sleeper? arise, call upon thy God, if so be that God will think upon us, that we perish not.15 So they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea ceased from her raging.In this account Jonah had disobeyed God and had failed to pronounce an impending judgment upon Nineveh. Rather, he got on a boat and fled the other way to Tarshish. As he dozed off, God sent a big storm in the boat’s way. Those that were in charge of the vessel found Jonah sleeping and thought that the gods had cursed him, making him the grounds for this furious tempest. They woke him up by the name “O sleeper” and cast him into the ocean to shatter the curse of the storm. This is where the whale swallows Jonah.

Glen Cunningham said that God had told him that the American church was the “O sleeper” because it was asleep in the light. This preacher then said that the church in the USA was given eight years to repent, lest judgment fall on the church and on the USA. When he said those words I began to visibly shake from fear in my seat. This had never happened to me before.

According to my mathematics, we are at fulfillment of this prophecy.
