Dear Friend,

Several local and national prophetic voices have been warning the Body of major natural disasters in California that will occur much sooner than many may think.

On Sunday, May 25th, 2008, four men from Kansas City, MO, showed up in San Jose with a word from the Lord. The Lord had been speaking to them for several years about disaster coming to California.

CRI – Crisis Response International

Several years ago, God called Sean Malone with a special mission to enter into regions before major catastrophes to prepare the church and provide disaster relief. They call their team CRI, or Crisis Response International. Six months before 9/11 hit, the Lord sent Sean Malone, to cry out every day on building tops over lower Manhattan. He was there when 9/11 happened, and a team of them worked with the NYC’s Mayors Office to provide emergency lighting and do search and rescue. Five days before Hurricane Katrina hit, the Lord sent Sean and his family to New Orleans. Again, they were used of the Lord to minister to victims in the aftermath. In 05’ while evacuated from Katrina the Lord told Sean to go preach in San Jose.

In the city of New Orleans as they fed victims they would ask people, “So why do you think this happened?” Over and over again, the response was, “God did this. We deserved it, and I repent.” Hearts everywhere were tender and open to the gospel. The disaster had produced a huge harvest field.

One Monday morning in New Orleans, while they were ministering to the victims, a fiery baptism of the Holy Spirit broke out. Demons were being cast out and people were being healed. Prostitutes were hearing the audible voice of the Lord leading them block by block to the crisis center, and telling them to enter the building where the team was ministering. The Lord was pouring out His Holy Spirit in the midst of crisis for months following the event.

Three Disasters

The Lord showed this team that there would be three disasters to hit America. After the first one, the church would roll over and go back to sleep. After the second one, some of the church would wake up, but most would hit the snooze button and fall back asleep. By the third one, the crisis would be significant enough that the church would wake up for good. They believe that these three events refer to 9/11, Katrina, and now what will come to California.


Prophets have been speaking for many years about an earthquake as well as tsunami that would hit the coast of California. Sean had a dream in which he was on a beach in a place he later would identify as Half Moon Bay. In this dream the four men set up a tent (beachhead) on the beach. The waves were huge and he jumped into the water and the first wave picked him up and set him on the roof of a glass house, which later turned out to be full of prophets. The sky grew dark and he saw the waters on the beach recede far out into the ocean. Knowing this was bad, he began to run toward the hills. As he jumped over the hill he yelled tsunami and then linked arms with an Asian man. They tied themselves to the ridge beam in the Asian mans house and the wave came.

Jeremiah 11:1-11 – The Broken Covenant

The CRI team from Kansas City received repeated occurrences of the number 11-11, or 111. For example, they would show up to a hotel and get Room 111. They would throw their change onto the dresser and it would be 11 cents and 11 cents in another. Sean would lay down on the bed and open up a book to Jeremiah 11:11. He would get ready to speak to a man named Jeremiah about California, when a friend would come up to him and say, “It’s 11:11,” referring to what time it was at the moment.

This and countless other confirmations showed that the Lord was speaking about Jeremiah 11:1-11, which is a passage about the broken covenant of Israel. It talks about how God’s people turned their back on him to serve other idols and go after other gods. “Therefore this is what the LORD says: ‘I will bring on them a disaster they cannot escape. Although they cry out to me, I will not listen to them.’” (Jeremiah 11:11)

Then the Lord told Sean to go back and look at the Mayflower Compact, signed by the forefathers of America. It says that “We hereby covenant ourselves to Almighty God. This nation is formed for the perpetuation of the gospel of Jesus Christ” (paraphrased). It was signed on November 11th, or 11/11. America made a covenant with God when it was formed, but has strayed. The Father longs to renew the covenant with America and redeem the rainbow over San Francisco.

Pony Express: Prophetic Messengers Coming to California

One day as they are on the road after meeting with an Asian church just over the hill from Half Moon Bay the presence of God fills the car and Rod gets a manifestation as if he were grunting like a horse. Just then as they turn a bend on the road, they drive past a truck full of horses with the Pony Express logo on the side. Sean had a post card with an advertisement for the Pony Express: “Looking for young, 18 – 25 year old riders for the Pony Express.” Rod, one of these four from KC, is a former postmaster in Missouri. Upon discovering that the Pony Express was a mail service that ran from Missouri to Sacramento, it was also the anniversary of the first riders being sent with the trip taking 11 days, both ways.

Before a disaster, the Lord would always send messengers with a warning for the people to repent. He sent Jonah to Nineveh to preach repentance. There needed to be widespread revelation in the land in order for the people to respond correctly. CRI believes that God wants to rise up prophetic messengers out of the place of weeping intercession. Joel 2:14- Who knows, maybe He will turn relent and leave a blessing behind. In God’s mercy he will eventually shake strategy to shake a city to repentance. Haggai 2:6-7 “For thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the LORD of hosts.

CRI also is training and getting ready to deploy trained end-time missionaries to the theatre of crisis. They are currently building a base camp that can house hundreds of volunteer staff, a mobile disaster kitchen and a crisis house of prayer (CRI-HOP).

Other Signs

  • There would be a great quake in Japan first, followed by a great quake in California
  • When you see the evangelists leave the streets, then get ready, San Francisco

God’s Heart in Judging a Nation

The Bible also says that there will be earthquakes, famines, wars and rumors of wars in the days leading up to the end times (Mark 13:8). In the midst of these inevitabilities, it is important to understand God’s heart in bringing catastrophe upon a nation. He is not a big bad angry God who simply wants to punish people for stepping out of line. Rather, he does everything in the name of love, disciplining those He cares about. He allows a measure of pain to produce a great amount of good. Scripture shows that the Lord often delivered the wayward Israelites into the hands of their enemies in order to bring them back to a covenant relationship with Him.

Protection for the Righteous

The Lord spoke to the team about Psalm 91:3. In one meeting, feathers started to rain from the ceiling, followed by a random phone call from a friend who said, “It’s Psalm 91:3.” Shortly thereafter, a license plate they ordered showed up in the mail, with a picture of the Louisiana State bird and the numbers “913” on it.

This passage says that there is protection and deliverance for the ones who abide in Him.

“For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.” (Psalm 91:3-4)

In light of these warnings, God is not calling his people to act out of fear or self-preservation, but to seek Him and trust in Him. He is calling them back to the secret place. Although it is good to be physically prepared, the only thing that will truly prepare us for the times ahead is intimacy with the Lord.

The Coming Revival

Many have heard by now about the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Florida that is spreading around the globe. We all talk about Joel 2 and the Spirit being poured out upon all flesh in the last days, but we forget the context. The outpouring is for crisis. CRI believes that the Lord is raising up a Joel 2 army for major crisis that is coming.

One day, Sean was on the phone with a disaster relief coordinator , who said that it was their belief that the Florida revival is a Joel 2 outpouring in preparation for an earthquake. He hung up the phone, and then got an email with a clipping of an April 22nd newspaper article in which the headline read, “US ARMY PREPARES FOR MASSIVE QUAKE.” Immediately after that, he received a second email saying that Bob Jones had just walked in and said, “Big earthquake, California, sooner than we think.”

This was again confirmed a few days later when Todd Bentley was honoring the fathers by having John Kilpatrick and Steve Hill from the previous revival in Pensacola, FL, on stage. John Kilpatrick, from the previous revival in Pensacola, FL, said that the Lord told him that one day a 3rd wave of revival was coming (speaking of this present one), but this revival was going to be different in that it would be in tandem with major end-time events. He then goes on to preach out of Joel 2 and describes a vision he had of an earthquake.

History has shown that there is no greater harvest field than the one that is borne out of the vacuum of crisis. This is a kairos moment for the church to become the hands and feet of Jesus and minister in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Three Ways to Respond

How is the Holy Spirit telling you to respond? Here are three suggestions.

Be Praying

  • For His people to have rest and intimacy with the Lord, staying rooted and grounded in love.
  • For the body of Christ to be awakened and arise out of its slumber.
  • For the Lord of the Harvest to send out his laborers to minister and become the hands and feet of Jesus.
  • For an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and for a great harvest to come in.

Be Sharing the Word

Ezekiel 3:16-21 says that if a person has a word from the Lord and they have the opportunity to turn a wicked man from his ways, but doesn’t, then the blood of this wicked person is on his hands. Since we have heard the word of the Lord, we have a responsibility to share it with people so that they have a chance to repent. There is still time for people to hear the gospel of Christ before disaster.

Be Ready to Serve

Did you know that showing up to volunteer at a disaster in America is a bad idea? You must be pre-trained and respond with a recognized organization. Otherwise, you will be turned away.
