From the Trumpet’s earliest editions, our editor in chief has drawn attention to specific prophetic warnings about race relations in America.
As far back as June 1992, in the wake of the Los Angeles race riots, Gerald Flurry wrote in the Trumpet:
As the economy grows worse, the rioters are going to burn more and more because God’s wrath is upon us! And God is far more wrathful toward the white people in Israel than He is with the black people. The problems are going to intensify until our people repent [of their many sins]! …
The Los Angeles rioting is just a type of what is going to happen to the whole nation! It is a stark prophecy of our future! The rioting and burning is the main thrust of the ‘pestilence’ mentioned in Ezekiel 5. [The word pestilence can be defined as a plague of violence or burning. For more information, request our free book on Ezekiel.] And this rioting is going to spread to other Israelite nations—unless these peoples repent!

It takes just one spark to ignite a forest fire. The same can often be said for society-wide destruction and violence. In 1914, for example, Germany used the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand as an excuse to plunge the entire world into war. No one expected it at the time. There had been 40 years of relative peace in Western Europe. And yet, one isolated event in Sarajevo set off a devastating chain reaction that brought the whole world to its knees. Austria declared war on Serbia. Russia mobilized in support of the Serbs and declared war on Austria. Germany declared war on Russia—then France. And on and on it went.
In the case of the raging inferno prophesied to devour America’s biggest cities before Christ’s return, could the shooting death of Trayvon Martin be the spark that leads to chaos and anarchy on the streets of America?
Louis Farrakhan has promised retaliation. The New Black Panther Party offered a $10,000 bounty for the shooter, George Zimmerman. Black Panthers also distributed a “Wanted: Dead or Alive” poster for Zimmerman. Movie director Spike Lee re-tweeted Zimmerman’s home address to 250,000 followers. (It turned out to be the wrong address.) And the New York Times, Reuters and other news agencies even coined a new phrase to fabricate the white-on-black narrative that is central to the liberal agenda. Zimmerman isn’t Hispanic. He’s now a white Hispanic.
Even President Obama weighed in on the controversy by stressing the racial component to the story: “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” the president said.
The Justice Department, meanwhile, is assiduously searching for evidence of Zimmerman being a racist in the hope that it can charge him for a hate crime.
