In this case, he is showing how America fits into the Book of Revelations and other passages throughout the Bible. In 1997, he was told to write this down, that these things will happen and people need to get ready. There are eerie parallels to events happening today: people leaving big cities, a lack of security, high taxes, no representation, riots and fear. In the Woe to America chapter, people are seen being driven off the coasts to the area between the Appalachians and the Rockies. Good or bad, there will be a harvest of the vineyard.
