A Visit with Charlie Johnston

Standing on this Watchtower, we all sense that we live in an uncertain and dangerous period. Some of us have found confirmation of this through the study of market cycles and/or the works of Strauss & Howe. Charlie Johnston speaks of these perilous times in more religious terms and it was quite interesting to visit with him earlier today.
Let me just state up front: This is not your usual podcast. If Christianity (and religion in general) isn't your cup of tea, I urge you to reconsider whether or not you want to listen to this recording. The idea behind presenting Charlie to everyone was to demonstrate another avenue of finding confirmation of the perilous times ahead. Therefore, this thread is not designed as a vehicle to argue about religion and faith, The Church and The Pope. You can do that in the forums. Instead, when Charlie mentions his prophetic visions of "The Storm"...the current period in which we live, lasting through the end of 2017...try to consider how this coincides with all of the other secular and agnostic theories of what is coming over the horizon.
Ultimately, the good news is that Charlie doesn't see this as some sort of End Times apocalypse. Instead, it's a type of purification that leads ultimately to a more honest, trustworthy and caring society. And we can't we all agree that that would be something far preferable to today?!?
So, again, I hope you enjoy this different type of podcast. I very much appreciated having the opportunity to visit with Charlie and I hope we can speak again sometime soon.
Charlie Johnston is a 58 year old Roman Catholic layman currently living in the diocese of Denver, Colorado. Born and raised a Christian Fundamentalist, in 1991 he experienced a powerful conversion into the Catholic church. He claims to have been receiving heavenly visits from Jesus, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Archangel Gabriel, and other heavenly visitors since early childhood, that is for over 50 years, and has been guided in his prophetic mission for 20 years by three Catholic priests who are his spiritual directors. Charlie suffered a severe neurological event at 9:03AM on Good Friday, 2003, which still affects him physically to this day. Although suffering from this painful nerve damage, from Feb. 11, 2011 to Aug. 21, 2012 he walked 3,200 miles across the country, sleeping in the woods, meeting people and praying as he went. Charlie states that is was God who willed that he make the journey, so he simply obeyed.
Charlie foresees a "Great Storm" that is now coming upon the world which will effect all of humanity. Concerning this, he has stated: "I tell people that we have entered the beginning of the greatest crisis in the history of Western Civilization and their imagination fails them." He explains that it will consist of a series of grave catastrophic events, one in succession upon another, each with progressively greater intensity and effect. He has described the forthcoming Storm as like being similar to a combination of the Great Depression and the Civil War all wrapped up into one, but each much worse than the original ones, because they will not be confined just to the USA, but will take place on a global scale. He emphasizes also that there will be some "false dawns" in between the calamities. One part of this predicted "Storm" will be that humanity will be at war with itself, like one great civil war upon the whole of the earth.
