On September 21, 1995 at 0500hrs., the Creator of the heavens and earth gave these warnings to the people of Taiwan:
"Taiwan, Taiwan, a land of pride and arrogance; for you have flaunted yourself before the world; you have flaunted yourself before the nations. Sit up and take notice! All will come to naught. Your might, power and stability will crumble as a man once strong and young, but now aging and old. You have believed in all things, in yourselves, but not in me. I will show you by fire, and hail, and the storm, that I am alive.
Look to me now; turn your eyes on me now, while yet there is time and you are still free. For I am coming with a sword, and drought, and pestilence; and the once proud children of Asia will become beggars. Their might and power will be removed before their eyes. They will know that I live. In your servanthood look to me, remember who I am. I have begotten you and loved you with an everlasting love and yet now do I love you even more. I am committed to forgiving you even more if only you will call on me while there is still time. For a time is yet coming that I can no longer call to you, send my servants, my spirit, my word to you, but you will be judged and damned forever, thus saith the Lord of Hosts."
On September 21, 1995 at 0511 to 0526hrs., the Creator of the heavens and earth gave these warnings to the people of Taiwan:
"People of Taiwan, your leaders have compromised. Your pastors have compromised. Your religious leaders have compromised. They speak to you words of naught. Sweet nothings. Empty of any value, merit or true hope. They tell you things, stories only what you want to hear. Their philosophies come out of their polluted hearts. They have sold their souls and are selling your souls for a pot of gold. For that which is only temporal. That which their eyes can only see. But as for the eternal they care not; neither have they prepared. And when they see me as I AM, they will melt in fear; in agony will they shudder for the lies, mischief and utter folly have they sown. But alas, the reaper is coming, alas, I am on my way to bring them to their reward. Yes, yes, you all have your reward, but the reward that is coming for them, that they have earned with their lies and their stealing and their compromise, they do not know, nor do they want to. But alas, they have earned it; they have deserved it and it is theirs.
It is decreed - it is finished. The rewards are awaiting their return and arrival. I am awaiting; death and Hell are waiting. Time is short, it is drawing nigh. The rewards are prepared. The crowns of life and death are ready. The owners have yet to claim them. The decisions are being made daily. Prepare ye, prepare ye for your crown. It is there; it is here. Just claim it - claim it now and forevermore."
People of Taiwan:
The above two messages are divine revelations of what is about to happen to Taiwan.
DISASTER is coming! Politically, economically and nationally the country is going to fall.
The WARNINGS from the Creator of the heavens and the earth are clear. You have listened to the lies of your leaders. Religious leaders, political leaders, spiritual leaders have all spoken lies; they have compromised truth. They speak from a greedy heart. You have put your trust in their preaching because your hearts have rejected the ways and truth of the Creator, and your hearts are as evil as your leaders. You depend on yourselves through your intellect, personal money and national economy. But the living God is going to allow it all to be taken from you. The God of the Universe is preparing to return to earth. He will judge all people and every nation. Out of his intense love from you, he will allow your country, Taiwan, to be partially judged now, before he returns. Because of these problems, some will repent in sincerity, not with a lying tongue. Through your problems and afflictions some of you will decide with your hearts to repent of past selfishness to your fellow man; you'll repent of your rebellion against God and you will turn to serve the living God through Jesus Christ.
Mercy and love is given to you now, by God sending these plagues upon you. Through this act of loving correction, some of you will turn to Jesus Christ before the time of repenting is past. Then death, hell and eternal judgment arrives. Repenting then, will be too late. Eternal Judgment (torment) is Final!
Jesus Christ is returning to earth with his heavenly hosts to make war on the nations of the earth that have rebelled against his authority; he will judge the people of the earth.
THERE IS HOPE!
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)
"And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." (Rev. 20:10-15)
Read the Holy Bible! Obey it!
This was recorded on 21 September 1995 and conveyed to church leaders at that time.
History of Taiwan:
Taiwan was inhabited by aborigines of Malayan descent when Chinese began settling it in the 7th century, becoming the majority. The Portuguese explored the area in 1590, naming it "the Beautiful" (Formosa). In 1624, the Dutch set up forts in the south, and the Spanish in the north. The Dutch forced out the Spanish in 1641 and controlled the island until 1661, when Chinese general Koxinga took it over and established an independent kingdom. The Manchus seized the island in 1683 and held it until 1895, when it passed to Japan after the first Sino-Japanese War.
Japan developed and exploited Formosa. It was the target of heavy American bombing during World War II, and the island was restored to China at the close of the war.
After the defeat of its armies on the mainland, the Nationalist government of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek retreated to Taiwan in December 1949. Chiang dominated the island. Beijing viewed the Taiwanese government with suspicion and anger, referring to Taiwan as a breakaway province of China. Chiang died of a heart attack on April 5, 1975. His son, Chiang Ching-kuo, continued as prime minister.
In April 1991, President Lee Teng-hui formally declared an end to emergency rule, which existed since Chiang's forces originally occupied the island. In 1991, the first full election in decades, the governing Kuomintang won 71% of the vote. In February 1993, the president nominated Lien Chan to be prime minister.
President Lee Teng-hui announced in July 1999 that he was abandoning the long-standing "One China" policy that had kept the peace between Taiwan and its neighbor and that he would deal with China on a "state-to-state basis." China retaliated by conducting submarine warfare exercises and missile tests near the island in an effort to intimidate Taiwan.
In the March 2000 presidential race, voters elected pro-independence candidate Chen Shui-bian of the Democratic Progressive Party, ending more than 50 years of Nationalist rule.
Taiwan joined the World Trade Organization in January 2002, just one day after China gained entry. In August, President Chen outraged China when he asserted that Taiwan and China are separate countries and that a referendum on independence for Taiwan is a "basic human right."
The day before the March 20, 2004, elections, President Chen Shui-bian and Vice President Annette Lu survived an assassination attempt. Chen won the election over Lien Chan by just 30,000 votes.
Tension between China and Taiwan intensified in March 2005, when China passed an anti-secession law that said the country could use force if Taiwan moved toward achieving independence. "The state shall employ non-peaceful means and other necessary measures to protect China's sovereignty and territorial integrity," the legislation stated. Taiwan president Chen Shui-bian called the bill a "law of aggression." Hundreds of thousands of Taiwanese took to the streets to protest the bill.
In April 2005, China met with several Taiwanese opposition leaders. Lien Chan traveled to China and met with President Hu Jintao. It was the first meeting between Nationalist and Communist Party leaders since 1949, when the defeated Nationalists retreated to Taiwan. Lien called the visit a "journey of peace." In May, Hu Jintao met with another opposition leader, James Soong, chairman of the People First Party. They agreed to a principle of "two sides of the strait, one China."
In June 2006, Taiwan's legislature initiated proceedings to oust President Chen because of allegations of corruption involving his family and senior administration officials, but the motion failed. In November, prosecutors indicted Wu Shu-chen, the wife of President Chen Shui-ban, charging that she spent $450,000 in public funds on personal expenditures.
Prime Minister Su Tseng-chang resigned in May 2007. President Shui-bian appointed Chang Chun-hsiung as his successor.
In parliamentary elections in January 2008, the Kuomintang defeated Chen's Democratic Progressive Party. President Chen resigned as head of the party. Taiwan continued its move toward warmer relations with China in March, when Ma Ying-jeou, of Kuomintang, prevailed over Frank Hsieh, of the Democratic Progressive Party in presidential elections.
Ma Ying-jeou reinforced his desire to pursue closer ties to mainland China in June when he outlined his economic plan. He called for access to China's financial markets for Taiwanese businesses, regular passenger flights and cargo passage across the Taiwan Strait. However, he insisted that China remove the short and medium-range missiles facing Taiwan before he will engage in peace talks with China.
Former president Chen Shui-bian was arrested and charged with corruption and embezzling money from a state affairs fund. Chen denied the allegations, claiming he was being persecuted to appease China. He was convicted of the charges in September 2009 and sentenced to life in prison.
In August 2009, Typhoon Morakot caused a mudslide in a rural mountain village in southern Taiwan that buried schools, homes, and killed at least 600 people. Prime Minister Liu Chao-shiuan resigned in September amid withering criticism of the government's slow response to the typhoon and its failure to evacuate residents before the storm hit.
Taiwan and China signed a landmark free-trade agreement in June 2010 that lifted or reduced hundreds of tariffs for both sides. Officials from both Taiwan and China described the deal as the most important achievement since the 1949 civil war.
On June 30, 2011, ex-president Lee Teng-hui was indicted on charges of embezzlement.
President Ma Ying-jeou was re-elected in January 2012 beating Taiwan's first female presidential candidate, Tsai Ing-wen. On February 6, 2012, Sean Chen assumed office as the premier.
On February 1, 2013, Sean Chen stepped down due to health issues. He was replaced by Vice Prime Minister Jiang Yi-huah.
In February 2014, high-ranking officials from China and Taiwan met in Nanking, China for the first time since the 1949 split.
