This is a vision which a revival preacher had in July 4, 1954, and taken from a book he wrote on it. This will of course kill a very large part of the U.S. population but America will survive; Germany survived World War II, America will survive World War III.

One of the elements that make this vision authentic is the mention of interceptor missiles, which did not exist until the advent of , Strategic Defense Missiles (STARWARS) that are supposed to be able to hit incoming nuclear missiles; but many people say they cannot do the job. This prophecy says they cannot.

Notice also the paragraphs that describe Christians hiding in shelters, protected frombook cover  the destruction. You will also notice that the context is clearly given as being World War III and the wrath of God upon the whole world. All nations will suffer destruction during that time, including the U.S., but many nations will survive and so will America.

This vision also agrees with my interpretation of Bible prophecy, as you will see, there is no mention of a rapture but there is mention of God's protection (I believe in a rapture at the end of the tribulation, but before the worst of God's wrath).

My Vision of The Destruction of America
By A. A. Allen

As I stepped inside the elevator at the Empire State Building, I never dreamed of the great experience, which awaited me just 86 stories up…. There on the east side of the terrace, I noticed a giant telescope, of the kind into which you can drop a dime, and see for approximately fifteen miles.…

As I stood with my dime between my fingers, waiting my turn, suddenly the spirit of the Lord came mightily upon me. I noticed the two giant eyes of the telescope as the man who was manipulating it turned it my direction. I was amazed that the spirit of the Lord should so move upon me, there atop the Empire State Building. Why should I feel such a surge of His spirit and power there?...

Then suddenly I heard the voice of the Lord. It was as clear and as distinct as a voice could be. It seemed to come from the very midst of the giant telescope. But when I looked at the telescope, I knew it hadn’t come from there, but directly from heaven. The voice said, "The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly. Therefore, from thenceforth, thou shalt have wars." …

As I stepped to the telescope and dropped in my dime, immediately, the ticking started again. This ticking was an automatic clock, which would allow me to use thetelescope for a definitely limited time only. … That morning, much of the view was impaired by fog. But suddenly as the spirit of the Lord came upon me the fog seemed to clear, until it seemed that I could see for thousands of miles. But that which I was looking upon was not Manhattan Island. It was the entire North American continent spread out before me as a map is spread upon a table.

It was not the East River and the Hudson River that I saw on either side, but the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans. And instead of the Statue of Liberty standing there in the bay on her small island, I saw her standing far out in the Gulf of Mexico. She was between the United States and me. I suddenly realized that the telescope had nothing to do with what I was seeing, but that it was a vision coming directly from God. And to prove this to myself, I took my eyes away from the telescope, so that I was no longer looking through the lens, but the same scene remained spread before me. There, clear and distinct, lay all the North American continent, with all its great cities. … 

And as I looked, suddenly from the sky I saw a giant hand reach down. That gigantic hand was reaching out toward the Statue of Liberty. In a moment her gleaming torch was torn from her hand, and in it instead was placed a cup. And I saw protruding from that great cup, a giant sword, shining as if a great light had been turned upon its glistening edge. Never before had I seen such a sharp, glistening, dangerous sword. It seemed to threaten the entire world. As the great cup was placed in the hand of the Statue of Liberty, I heard these words, "Thus says the Lord of hosts, Drink ye and be drunken, spue and fall, and rise no more, because of the sword which I will send."

As I heard these words, I recognized them as a quotation from Jeremiah 20:7. I was amazed to hear the Statue of Liberty speak out in reply, "I WILL NOT DRINK!" Then as the voice of the thunder, I heard again the voice of the Lord, saying, "Thus says the Lord of hosts, YE SHALL CERTAINLY DRINK." (Jeremiah 25:28.) Then suddenly the giant hand forced the cup to the lips of the Statue of Liberty, and she became powerless to defend herself. The mighty hand of God forced her to drink every drop from the cup. As she drank the bitter dregs, these were the words that I heard, "Should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, says the Lord of Hosts." (Jeremiah 25:29).

When the cup was withdrawn from the lips of Statue of Liberty, I noticed the sword was missing from the cup, which could mean but one thing. THE CONTENTS OF THE CUP HAD BEEN COMPLETELY CONSUMED! I knew that the sword merely typified war, death, and destruction, which is no doubt on the way. Then as one drunken on too much wine, I saw the Statue of Liberty become unsteady on her feet and begin to stagger, and to lose her balance. I saw her splashing in the Gulf, trying to regain her balance. I saw her stagger again and again, and fall to her knees. As I saw her desperate attempts to regain her balance, and rise to her feet again, my heart was moved as never before with compassion for her struggles.

But as she staggered there in the gulf, once again I heard these words, "Ye shall drink and be drunken, and spue, and fall, and rise no more because of the sword that I shall send among you." As I watched, I wondered if the Statue of Liberty would ever be able to regain her feet - if she would ever stand again. And as I watched, it seemed that with all her power she struggled to rise, and finally staggered to her feet again, and stood there swaying drunkenly. I felt sure that at any moment she would fall again - possibly never to rise. I seemed overwhelmed with a desire to reach out my hand to keep her head above water, for I knew that if she ever fell again she would drown there in the Gulf.

Then as I watched, another amazing thing was taking place. Far to the northwest, just over Alaska, a huge, black cloud was arising. As it rose, it was as black as night. It seemed to be in the shape of a man's head. As it continued to arise, I observed two light spots in the black cloud. It rose further, and a gaping hole appeared. I could see that the black cloud was taking the shape of a skull, for now the huge, white, gaping mouth was plainly visible. Finally the head was complete. Then the shoulders began to appear, and on either side, long, black arms. It seemed that what I saw was the entire North American continent, spread out like a map upon table with this terrible skeleton-formed cloud arising from behind the table. It rose steadily until the form was visible down to the waist.

At the waist, the skeleton seemed to bend toward the United States, stretching forth a hand toward the east and one toward the west - one toward New York and one toward Seattle. As the awful form stretched forward, I could see that its entire attention seemed to focused upon the United States, overlooking Canada - at least for the time being. As I saw the horrible black cloud in the form of a skeleton bending toward America, bending from the waist over, reaching down toward Chicago and out toward both coasts, I knew its one interest was to destroy the multitudes.

As I watched in horror, the great black cloud stopped just above the Great Lake region, and turned its face toward New York City. Then out of the horrible, great, gaping mouth began to appear wisps of white vapor, which looked like smoke, as a cigarette smoker would low puffs of smoke from his mouth. These whitish vapors were being blown toward New York City. The smoke began to spread, until it had covered all the eastern part of the United States.

Then the skeleton turned to the west, and out of the horrible mouth and nostrils came another great puff of white smoke. This time it was blown in the direction of the west coast. In a few moments time, the entire west coast and Los Angeles area was covered with its vapors..

Then toward the center came a third great puff. As I watched, St. Louis and Kansas City were enveloped in its white vapors. Then on it came toward New Orleans. Then on they swept until they reached the Statue of Liberty where she stood staggering drunkenly in the blue waters of the Gulf. As the white vapors began to spread around the head of the Statue, she took in but one gasping breath, and then began to cough as though to rid her lungs of the horrible vapors she had inhaled.

One could readily discern by the painful coughing that those white vapors had seared her lungs. What were these white vapors? Could they signify bacteriological warfare that could destroy multitudes of people in a few moments time? Or could they be the new G-gas, the horrible nerve gas recently made known to the American public? …

Indeed, Val Peterson, Federal Civil Defense Administrator, estimates that … "Nerve gas used by an enemy with maximum efficiency could be deadlier than an atomic bomb." Right now you and your family, all of us, are unprotected against the threat of this terror weapon. … The Army calls it GB; it's an odorless, colorless, tasteless nerve gas designed to destroy people with paralyzing suddenness. We have it; so do the Russians.… G-gas, as nerve gas is sometimes called, is cheap to produce, a small amount can do the job, and it leaves a nation's industrial plants, utilities and buildings intact for an occupying power.…

As I looked with wonder upon the vision God had give me I wondered could it be this horrible G Gas, which was causing the Statue of Liberty to react so violently, as it floated about her head, looking like an innocent cloud?

Then I heard the voice of God, as He spoke: "Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof."

"And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. “The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this word. The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. "Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few men left." (Isaiah 24:6)

As I watched, the coughing grew worse. It sounded like a person about to cough out his lungs. The Statue of Liberty was moaning and groaning. She was in mortal agony. The pain must have been terrific, as again and again, she tried to clear her lungs of those horrible white vapors. I watched her there in the Gulf, as she staggered, clutching her lungs and her breast with her hands. Then she fell to her knees. In a moment, she gave one final cough, made a last desperate effort to rise from her knees, and then fell face forward into the waters of the gulf, and lay still - still as death. Tears ran down my face as I realized that she was dead! Only the lapping of the waves, splashing over her body, which was partly under the water, and partly out of the water, broke the stillness.…

Suddenly the screaming of sirens shattered the silence. Sirens that seemed to scream "RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!" Never before had I heard such shrill, screaming sirens. They seemed to be everywhere - to the north, the south, the east and the west. There seemed to be multitudes of sirens. And as I looked, I saw people everywhere running. But it seemed none of them ran more than a few paces, and then they fell. And even as I had seen the Statue of Liberty struggling to regain her poise and balance, and finally falling for the last time, to die on her face, I now saw millions of people falling in the streets, on the sidewalks, struggling. I heard their screams for mercy and help. I heard their horrible coughing, as though their lungs had been seared with fire.

I heard the moanings and groanings of the doomed and the dying. As I watched, a few finally readied shelters. But only a few ever got to the shelters, and above the moaning and the groaning of the dying multitudes, I heard these words: "A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the Lord hath a controversary with the nations, He will plead with all flesh; He will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the Lord. Behold evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth. And the slain Of The Lord shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not he lamented, neither gathered nor burled; they shall be dung upon the ground." (Jeremiah 25:31-33.)

Then suddenly I saw from the Atlantic and from the Pacific, and out of the Gulf, rocket-like objects that seemed to come up like fish leaping out of the water. High into the air they leaped, each headed in a different direction, but every one toward the United States. On the ground, the sirens screamed louder. And up from the ground I saw similar rockets beginning to ascend.

To me, these appeared to be interceptor rockets although they arose from different points all over the United States. However none of them seemed to be successful in intercepting the rockets that had risen from the ocean on every side. These rockets finally reached their maximum height, slowly turned over, and fell back toward the earth in defeat.

Then suddenly, the rockets, which had leaped out of the oceans like fish all, exploded at once. The explosion was earsplitting. The next thing, which I saw, was a huge ball of fire. The only thing I have ever seen which resembled the thing I saw in my vision was the picture of the explosion of the H-bomb, somewhere in the South Pacific some months ago. In my vision, it was so real I seemed to feel a searingheat from it.

As the vision spread before my eyes, and I viewed the widespread desolation brought about by the terrible explosions, I could not help thinking, "While the defenders of our nation have quibbled over what means of defense to use, and neglected the only true means of defense, faith and dependence upon the true and living God, the thing, which she greatly feared, has come unto her! How true it has proven that ‘Except the Lord keep the city, the watchman watcheth but in vain.’"

Then as the noise of battle subsided, to my ears came this quotation from Joel, the second chapter: "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh for it is nigh at hand. "A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong: there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

"A fire devoureth before them: and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in baffle array. Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.

"They shall run like mighty men: they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk everyone on in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. "The shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. "The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining." Joel 2:1-10.

Then the voice was still. The earth, too, was silent, the silence, with the silence of death. And then to my ears came another sound - a sound of distant singing. It was the sweetest music I had ever heard. There was joyful shouting, and sounds of happy laughter. Immediately, I knew it was the rejoicing of the saints of God. I looked, and there high in the heaven, above the smoke and poisonous gases, above the noise of battle, I saw a huge mountain. It seemed to be of solid rock, and I knew at once that this was the Mountain of the Lord. The sounds of music and rejoicing were coming from a cleft, high up in the side of the rock mountain. It was the saints of God who were doing the rejoicing. It was God’s own people who were singing and dancing and shouting with joy, safe from all harm which had come upon the earth, for they were hidden away in the cleft of the rock.

There in the cleft, they were shut in, protected by a great, giant hand which reached out of the heavens, and which was none other than the hand of God, shutting them in, until the storm be over-passed. "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to the flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption." Galatians 6:7.

No doubt many who are reading this are wondering, "Will America actually be invaded? Will she have to pay for her wickedness and sin, and for turning her back upon God? Will the wrath and fury of God’s judgment fall upon Uncle Sam? Will America be invaded by Russia? Will Russia use the horrible G gas that can kill millions in a few seconds time? Will she resort to biological warfare that could kill literally millions over night? Will Russia resort to the use of hydrogen weapons? Could God allow such a horrible thing to happen to America? In reply to all these questions, permit me to quote a few scriptures, and make a few thought provoking statements.

America has been sowing with a free hand, preparing for a tremendous harvest - but what has she sown? God declares that as sure as America has sown, SHE SHALL REAP!

"The wicked shall be turned into Hell, and all nations that forget God." Palms 9:17.

"The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek him but his power and his wrath is against all that forsake him." Ezra 8:22.

"If ye be willing and obedient ye shall eat the good of the land, but if ye rebel and refuse, ye shall be devoured with the sword." Isaiah 1:19, 20. …

It is my firm conviction, based upon the authority of God's word, that any nation which forgets God to the extent that America has forgotten Him - any nation that rebels and refuses to walk in obedience to God's word as America has refused and rebelled shall be destroyed, and that without remedy." "He that being often reproved, hardeneth his neck shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy." Proverbs 29:1.

In the light of these scriptures, I am convinced that America is on God's list!... Never did a generation of people live in such critical times. Decay has already progressed far. Judgment is on the way. And there is only one hiding place from the wrath of God. That hiding place is in the cleft of the Rock, Christ Jesus, protected by His mighty hand.

My friend, have you found the cleft in the rock? Has the mighty protecting hand of God shut you in? Do you have on the wedding garments? Are you ready for the wonderful coming of Jesus Christ? If the storm should strike tonight, would you be hidden in that cleft in the rock, which is Christ?...
