I have had this on my computer since around 1998 when I first got on the internet. The original link is long gone. I have seen it other places on the net--apparently copied, as I did.
A couple of the places that have posted it removed the ending where it talks about the saints of God -- possibly because it didn't agree with their rapture doctrine.
I do not know if this prophecy is true or not. It mentions three things that I think are relevant:
1. The Statue of Liberty being forced to drink the cup of judgment (9-11?)
2. The Statue staggering in the Gulf (from the huge flood of illegals?)
3. Star Wars missles. These could not have been conceived of in 1954 when this was written.
AA Allen was a flamboyant, charasmatic evangelist who fell, and died drunk in an automobile crash. But somehow the vision has a ring of truth to me.
If it is true, it needs to be heard. If it is not true, I feel there is enough spiritual discernment on this Board to distinguish that.
Would appreciate others' input. :)
The following vision was received by Evangelist
A.A. Allen on July 4, 1954.
As I stood atop the Empire State Building, I could see the Statue of
Liberty, illuminating the gateway to the new world. Here, spread before
me like an animated map, is an area sixty or eighty miles in diameter. I
was amazed that the Spirit of the Lord should so move me, there atop the
Empire State Building. Why should I feel such a surge of His Spirit and
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 you have done
foolishly. Therefore, from henceforth, you shall have wars."
Immediately when I heard the voice of God, I knew this was a
quotation of Scripture. But never before had a thing come to me so
forcibly by the power of the Spirit. The ticking of the telescope stopped.
The man before me had used up his dimes worth. As he stepped away
I knew that I was next. 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 the telescope for a definitely limited
As I swung the telescope to the North, suddenly the Spirit of God
came upon me in a way that I had never thought of before. Seemingly in
the spirit I was entirely caught away. I knew that the telescope itself
had nothing to do with the distance which I was suddenly enabled to see,
for I seemed to see things far beyond the range of the telescope, even on
a bright clear day. It was simply that God had chosen this time to
reveal these things to me, for as I looked through the telescope, it was
not Manhattan Island that I saw, but a far larger view.
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
all of the 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 me and the United States.
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
There, clear and distinct, lay all the North American Continent, with
all it's great cities. To the North lay the Great Lakes. Far to the
Northeast was New York City. I could see Seattle and Portland far to the
Northwest. Down the West Coast, there were San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Closer in the foreground, there lay New Orleans, at the center of the Gulf Coast area.
I could see the great towering ranges of the Rocky Mountains,
and trace with my eye the Continental Divide.
All this and more, I could see spread out before me as a great map upon a table.
And as l 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. lt
seemed to threaten all the world. As the great cup was placed in the hand
of the Statue of Liberty, I heard these words, "Thus saith 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 25:7.
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 saith the Lord of Hosts, YE SHALL
CERTAINLY DRINK." (Jer.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 you be utterly unpunished? You shall not be unpunished: for I
will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the
Lord of Hosts." (Jer.25:29) When the cup was withdrawn from the lips of
the 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.
"Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, nor for the
pestilence that walketh in darkness, nor for the destruction that wastes
at noonday." Psalms 91:5,6.
Then as I watched, another amazing thing was taking place. Far to
the Northwest, just out 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,
It seemed that what I saw was the entire North American Continent,
spread out like a map upon a 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 towards 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 the entire
attention seemed to be focused upon the U.S., overlooking Canada at
least for the time being. As I saw the horrible black cloud in the
form of a skeleton bending towards America, bending from the waist over,
reaching down toward Chicago and out towards both coasts, I knew it's
one interest was to destroy the multitudes.
As I watched in horror, the great black cloud stopped just above
the great lakes region, and turned it's face towards 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 blow
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 L.A. area was covered with it's vapors
Then towards 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 towards 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 coughing that those white
vapors had seared her lungs.
What were these white vapors? Could they signify bacteriological
warfare or nerve gas that could destroy multitudes of people in a few
Then I heard the voice of God, as He spoke again: "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 taker of
usury, so with the giver of usury to him. The land shall be utterly
emptied, and utterly spoiled : for The Lord has 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 has
the curse devoured the earth and they that dwell therein are desolate;
therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few men are left."
As I watched, the coughing grew worse. It sounded like a person
was about to cough out his lungs. The Statue 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, and made a last desperate effort to rise from
her knees, and then fell face forward into the waters of The Gulf and
lay 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 water, broke the silence.
"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." Joel 2:3
Suddenly the silence was shattered by the screaming of sirens. The
sirens seemed to scream, "RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!"
Never before had I heard such shrill, screaming sirens. They seemed
to be everywhere - to the North, 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
struggling to regain her poise and balance, and finally falling 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 reached shelters, and above the
moaning and groanings, I heard these words:
"A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth for the Lord has
a controversy 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 onto the other end
of the earth: they shall not be lamented neither gathered nor buried;
they shall be dung upon the ground. (Jer. 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 towards The U.S. On The ground,
the sirens screamed louder. And up from the ground I saw similar
rockets begin to ascend. To me, these appeared to be interceptor
rockets although they arose from different points all over the U.S.
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. Them suddenly, the rockets which had leaped
out of the ocean like fish all exploded at once. The explosion was ear-
splitting. 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 in the South
Pacific. In my vision, it was so real I seemed to fell a searing heat
As the vision spread before my eyes, and I viewed the widespread
desolation brought about by the terrific 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 watches but in vain."
Then as the noise of the battle subsided, to my ears cam 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 horse-
men, 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 battle 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 every one in his
path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall,
they shall climb up 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, 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 heavens, above the smoke and poisonous gases, above The noise of
the 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 the harm which had come upon the earth, for they were
hidden safely 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 to be overpassed.
