The Prophecy of Samuel Percee

“Rev, did you read this? What do you think about it"?
Paraphrased Prophecy
First Phase: I saw blood flow in the direction of Cameroon. The prophet foretells of impending doom like a war where there will be blood shed from people killing each other. The prophet gives the number that will perish: 2,700,000 people. And he states that the war will be in three years. The Lord tells him that if the people will covert the same number into the lord he will spare them the bloodshed.
Second Phase: on the 26th of December 2008 he saw a huge wind like a three storey building coming with great force. He saw Cameroon like a ball engulfed in red flames. This smoke had the form of a human being; the form of a man that was alive.

First the practice of God speaking to his prophets is still practical today as it is confirmed in the Bible. The start time is not clearly determined but that it is very near. A prophecy could have three phases: immediate, in the nearest future and in extended future. The immediate fulfillment would deal with the setting of the prophet, the nearest with the coming of Jesus and extended in our days. For example some prophecies of Isaiah got fulfilled during his days, in the days of Jesus and in our days.
The prophet claims that out of 23 millions inhabitants of Cameroon only 500,000 are born again. This is not the first time God gives numbers of those who are his real worshippers. When Elijah complained that he was the only true prophet who had not bowed down to Baal, God told him that there were still seven thousand (7000) left who have not done that (I kgs 19:18).
The alleged request of the lord for 2,700,000 converts for him not to rain the country with bloodshed worries many. While it sounds doubtful, it too is not a strange phenomenon. During the bargain incident between God and Abraham for the salvation of Sodom and Gomorrah, God requested for 50 righteous for him not to destroy the place. But they did not reach that number. The number was reduced to ten (10) yet they weren’t. So the Lord rained the place with fire (Gen 18:23-19: 24).
The greatest question is why does the Lord destroy the righteous with the wicked? Why did God allow Cain to kill Abel (righteous man; Mt 23:35) in his watchful eyes? God does not intervene all the time in the affairs of the earth that is why he has set a time of judgment for everyone’s action. More so, God does not worry about the death of the righteous because they go to a better place. Furthermore, the righteous are still on earth so they will face the consequences that come on earth.
Nonetheless, in precarious situations, to find the meaning of a prophecy we should do two things: take it to the lord in prayer like Daniel did when he could not understand a dream (Dn 2:17-18), and leave it into the hands of God. If it does not fulfill it does not hurt anyone after all it motivates people to evangelize. But if we fight it and it happens to be truly from God we may see ourselves fighting against God (Acts 5:38-39). Just remember that God always uses bloodshed because that is the only message the wicked understand easily (Is 26:9).
Until then, men ought always to pray and not faint.
