I’ve noted recently that I follow Charlie Johnston. I won’t rehash his background now, but in a nutshell he claims to have received training/visions/foreshadowing of things to come. Yes, many others claim the same thing, but Charlie’s a bit different. He does not focus on many details, but in the overall umbrella of things, which a much stronger focus on our response things than providing details of specific things.
Having said that, he has very clearly stated a couple of things that he says will happen. He has stated this with certainty, and has as much said he will shut up and go away if it doesn’t happen:
(1) The next stable leader in the United States will not come from the electoral process. This does not mean the election will not happen (though it could mean that), but that by the time inauguration day comes along, we will be in such a state of disarray that it will not matter.
(2) Obama will not finish out his term. This is possibly murky as well. It could be that he extends his term through emergency powers and doesn’t finish that out. But in any case, whether it is by January or shortly thereafter, something will happen here that Obama is not the next stable leader.
(3) The Rescue occurs somewhere near the end of 2017. We don’t know exactly when, other than it’s in the latter half of the year. The Rescue is the “event” that makes everyone come to their senses and realizes that Mary is the Mother of God, that Jesus is King, and that God is really God. Nearly everyone will be converted, and from there we can start to rebuild society more aligned with the will of God.
Is Charlie for real? Well, here’s what I can say… he shows no signs of being a liar. There is nothing to gain, as afar as I can tell, from such a deception. He doesn’t ask for money, he doesn’t sell stuff, etc. He could be delusional along with a particular ability to read the tea leaves of the times around us. In other words, he may be particularly good at foreseeing trends and may be falsely attributing his own abilities to something supernatural and is imagining his visitations. Or, he may be entirely authentic in his claims, but despite his certainty he still got something wrong in interpretation as far as timeline and events. Finally, he may be entirely authentic and entirely correct in his specifics.
To be honest, I have ruled out deception. It makes no sense. I’ve mostly ruled out delusion. Just following and reading his blog, and seeing the straightforward and logical manner in which he addresses other topics, there are no signs of this. Having said that, he is a smart guy who could well be good at reading trends without supernatural assistance.
If he is authentic, which to me seems highly probable, then whether or not his timeline and specifics are correct still means that we are either in for a s***storm in the almost immediate future or we’re in for one soon enough.
It’s really kind of remarkable that he has put himself out there with such certainty. I leave everyone to their own opinions on the matter. But the state of politics, the powder kegs around us (not just our country, but globally – after all he is U.S. centric because that’s where he and his audience is – but this is to be a global thing), is becoming more and more evident to more and more people. Folks who have no particular religious or moral agenda are openly wondering what the reaction will be to the elections here, regardless of who wins. We’ve all seen that a random event that happens in a random community can escalate to mobs and protests and violence. So far, these flare-ups have been local/regional, have been ultimately contained, and have not caused massive civil unrest. But is there some trigger event that could cause greater disruption?
And that’s not even getting into ISIS, North Korea, China, Russia, Iran, Libya, Syria, and all the rest.
All I’d say is, pay attention, keep your eyes open, and be ready. I am not predicting with certainty that Charlie is right. I am, however, saying that there’s a higher probability than I’d prefer that he’s not wrong. I can even think back to when I first heard him saying such things about a year ago – regarding the next stable leader and the elections this year. At the time, it seemed really out there and impossible. In one year’s time, it has moved into the reasonably possible scenario.
