Dumitru Duduman's Vision

of America's Sudden Destruction

"The Russian spies have discovered where the nuclear warehouses are in America. When the Americans will think that it is peace and safety - from the middle of the country, some of the people will start fighting against the government. The government will be busy with internal problems. Then from the ocean, from Cuba, Nicaragua, Mexico,... (He told me two other countries, but I didn't remember what they were.) ...they will bomb the nuclear warehouses. When they explode, America will burn!"


About Dumitri Duduman

Dumitru Duduman was born to George and Escaterina Duduman on July 14, 1932 in Hintesti, Romania.  His native village is situated in the northeastern part of Romania near the Russian border.  Here Dumitru was brought up in the knowledge of God by his parents, but most of all from his grandfather, Costache, whom he loved deeply.  He grew accustomed to religious persecution at a very young age seeing his father and older brother, Costache, put in prison for their beliefs.  Although the rest of the family had not been arrested, they were ordered to hard labor in the Communist farmland projects.
Even though Dumitru had been brought up in a Christian home, by the age of fourteen he had started wandering from God.  At the age of seventeen he rebelled and joined the Romanian army.  His rejection of God saddened his parents greatly and for many months they prayed for him continually.   Dumitru spent the first eight months of his army career in the Chitila boot camp.  Even today this boot camp is well known for it's harsh treatment of new recruits.   After finishing boot camp, Dumitru was one of few soldiers chosen to go on to the Constanta Military School.  He started in Constanta in 1951 and stayed there four and one half years.  Upon his graduation, Dumitru received a diploma and was given the rank of Lieutenant in the Marines.   Soon he had eighty men under his command.
It was also during this time that persecution against Christians began to escalate.  Dumitru was given orders to search every ship coming into the Constanta harbor at the Black Sea.  If he should find Bibles, he was to confiscate them and arrest whomever was responsible for bringing them into the country.
One morning as he and eight of his men were searching a ship, Dumitru came upon a large number of bibles.  He was overjoyed at finding the Bibles knowing that this would bring yet another upgrade in his ranking.
While questioning the man who was responsible for bringing the Bibles, Dumitru had his first personal encounter with the power of God.  He heard a voice telling him to help the man unload the Bibles and cause him no harm.  When the voice persisted , Dumitru obeyed and helped the missionary to the fullest.
For two years Dumitru remained on the Black Sea helping missionaries that came through.  After being sent to another school for six months, he was returned to his unit as a full Major.  The future seemed very bright for Dumitru, until the Communist government of Romania passed a law that would change his life forever.  They ordered that all soldiers in the Romanian army who are Christians or who came from Christian homes to be dismissed immediately.
At age twenty-four, angry and disappointed, Dumitru returned home seeking vengeance.  He went to the church service that his father was attending with the purpose of venting his anger and frustrations.  As he walked to the church service, he heard a song being sung that touched his heart so deeply that he began to weep.  This was the seed that took root in his heart and made him commit himself to God not long after that experience.   Shortly after this event he met Maria (Ecatarina) who would become his wife and bear his first child.  A girl, whom they named Virginia, was born to them on April 18, 1957.  One year later, Maria gave birth to another baby, this time a boy.  They named him Costica, but he died when he was only five and a half months old.
In his time of trial Dumitru turned to God, and his love for the Lord continued to grow.  He was soon baptized with the Holy Spirit, and not long after he began to preach.
As he continued to dedicate himself to God, the enemy came against him more and more.  People were coming to Christ, and the devil was not pleased.   After much prayer and a promise from God, Dumitru finally saw the hand of God move in a mighty way.  Maria was healed and her sight was completely restored.   God began to use Dumitru in the area of healing and prophecy, and many saw the power of God during his travels throughout Romania.  As Dumitru continued to see God's goodness and power, he became involved in Bible smuggling.  There was a great hunger for the Word of God in Romania, as well as in Russia, and Bibles were very scarce.
In 1973 Dumitru began smuggling large quantities of Bibles over the Russian border.  He had established many connections with outside missionaries who would supply him with Bibles.  Through many miraculous occurrencies, God continually protected Dumitru.  In one instance, God even blinded the eyes of the police so they would not see the car filled with Bibles that he was riding in.  In all of his years of smuggling Bibles he was never caught.  In 1979 based on information received from informants within the Christian church, Dumitru was arrested and brutally tortured for over five months.   Every means imaginable were used, from electric shock to breaking nine of his ribs trying to obtain the names of people that helped Dumitru smuggle Bibles.   With God's help he never broke under the severe persecution, and he never revealed the names of his Christian borthers.  While Dumitru was in prison, God spoke to him through an angel, encouraging him not to fear for he still had much work to do.  He was told that he would be released and that he would smuggle Bibles into Romania and into Russia for another five years.  Just as the angel had said, after the death of the Colonel who was heading up the investigation, Dumitru was released and for another four years he faithfully did the work of God.  Over a fifteen-year period, with God's help, Dumitru smuggled more than 300,000 Bibles and New Testaments into Russia alone, not taking into account the number of Bibles that he distributed throughout Romania.
On July 24, 1984 Dumitru and his entire family were expelled from Romania by the Communist officials.  He had been given two options; either leave the country or die.  It was difficult decision for Dumitru because Romanian was all that he had ever known.  He would be going to unknown places where he neither spoke the language nor knew anyone who could help him.  Once again, God spoke to Dumitru encouraging him and telling him that all would be well.  He has yet another task to accomplish and God would be with him wherever he went.
After leaving Romania, the Duduman family made a brief stop in Italy where there was a failed attempt on his life by the Romanian Secret Police.  Soon after, they boarded another plane, and on August 3, 1984 they were on American soil.  Once in America, God gave Dumitru a message for this nation as well as for the American church.  Life was difficult for the Duduman family during the first years in America but with God's guidance and direction, they persevered.   They started a small ministry called Hand of Help, whose primary purpose at that time was to send food packages and financial aid to the families of Christian brethren who had been arrested for their faith.  After the revolution of 1989, Dumitru was able to go back to Romania and see his family.   The desire to help his fellow Christians still burned in his heart, and since 1990, through the work of Hand of Help, he has been able to do so.  His purpose has always been a simple one: to be obedient to God's Word and to all that God would ask.  He was a tireless advocate for righteousness and purity and he carried on the message of God even while his body grew old and began to revolt against him.  Against his doctor's orders, he continued to travel throughout the world preaching the Word of God until finally in May of 1997, God called his servant home.

Dumitri's Vision: America Will Burn

The following is the witness of warning that Dumitri gave to each of the meetings he addressed in his 1990 speaking tour mentioned above.

(Quoting from chapter 10, Through the Fire Without Burning)

- September 1984 -

Late one night I could not sleep. The children were sleeping on the luggage. My wife and daughter were crying. I went outside and walked around. I didn't want them to see me cry. I walked around the building, crying and saying, "God! Why did you punish me? Why did you bring me into this country? I can't understand anybody. If I try to ask anybody anything, all I hear is, 'I don't know."'

I stopped in front of the apartment and sat on a large rock. Suddenly a bright light came toward me. I jumped to my feet because it looked as if a car was coming directly at me, attempting to run me down! I thought the Romanian Secret Police had tracked me to America, and now they were trying to kill me. But it wasn't a car at all. As the light approached, it surrounded me. From the light I heard the same voice that I had heard so many times in prison. He said, "Dumitru, why are you so despaired?"

I said, "Why did you punish me? Why did you bring me to this country? I have nowhere to lay my head down. I can't understand anybody."

He said, "Dumitru, didn't I tell you I am here with you also? I brought you to this country because this country will burn."

I said, "Then why did you bring me here to burn? Why didn't you let me die in my own country? You should have let me die in jail in Romania!"

He said, "Dumitru, have patience so I can tell you. Get on this." I got on something next to him. I don't know what it was. I also know that I was not asleep. It was not a dream. It was not a vision. I was awake just as I am now. He showed me all of California and said, "This is Sodom and Gomorrah! All of this, in one day it will burn! It's sin has reached the Holy One." Then he took me to Las Vegas. "This is Sodom and Gomorrah. In one day it will burn." Then he showed me the state of New York. "Do you know what this is?" he asked.

I said, "No."

He said, "This is New York. This is Sodom and Gomorrah! In one day it will burn."

Then he showed me all of Florida. "This is Florida," he said. "This is Sodom and Gomorrah! In one day it will burn."

Then he took me back home to the rock where we had begun. "All of this I have shown you - IN ONE DAY IT WILL BURN!"

I said, "How will it burn?"

He said, "Remember what I am telling you, because you will go on television, on the radio and in churches. You must yell with a loud voice. Do not be afraid, because I will be with you."

I said, "How will I be able to go? Who knows me here in America? I don't know anybody here."

He said, "Don't worry yourself. I will go before you. I will do a lot of healing in the American churches, and I will open the doors for you. But do not say anything else besides what I tell you. This country will burn!"

I said, "What will you do with the Church?" He said, "I want to save the Church, but the churches have forsaken me." I said, "How did they forsake you?"

He said, "The people praise themselves. The honor that the people are supposed to give Jesus Christ, they take upon themselves. In the churches there are divorces. There is adultery in the churches. There are homosexuals in the churches. There is abortion in the churches; and all other sins that are possible. Because of the sin, I have left some of the churches. You must yell in a loud voice that they must put an end to their sinning. They must turn toward the Lord. The Lord never gets tired of forgiving. They must draw close to the Lord, and live a clean live. If they have sinned until now, they must put an end to it, and start a new life as the Bible tells them to live."

I said, "How will America burn? America is the most powerful country in this world. Why did you bring us here to burn? Why didn't you at least let us die where ALL the Dudumans have died?"

He said, "Remember this, Dumitru. The Russian spies have discovered where the nuclear warehouses are in America. When the Americans will think that it is peace and safety - from the middle of the country, some of the people will start fighting against the government. The government will be busy with internal problems. Then from the ocean, from Cuba, Nicaragua, Mexico,..." (He told me two other countries, but I didn't remember what they were.) "...they will bomb the nuclear warehouses. When they explode, America will burn!"

"What will you do with the Church of the Lord? How will you save the ones that will turn toward you?" I asked.

He said, "Tell them this: how I saved the three young ones from the furnace of fire, and how I saved Daniel in the lions den, is the same way I will save them."

The angel of the Lord also told me, "I have blessed this country because of the Jewish people who are in this country. I have seven million Jews in this country, but they do not want to recognize the Lord. They didn't want to thank God for the blessings they received in this country."

"Israel doesn't want to recognize Jesus Christ. They put their faith in the Jewish people in America. But, when America burns, the Lord will raise China, Japan and other nations to go against the Russians. They will beat the Russians and push them all the way to the gates of Paris. Over there they will make a treaty, and appoint the Russians as their leaders. They will then unite against Israel."

"When Israel realizes she does not have the strength of America behind her, she will be frightened. That's when she will turn to the Messiah for deliverance. That's when the Messiah will come. Then, the church will meet Jesus in the air, and He will bring them back with Him to the Mount of Olives. At that time the battle of Armageddon will be fought."

When I heard all of this I said, "If you are truly the angel of the Lord, and everything you have told me is true, then all you have said must be written in the Bible."

He said, "Tell everyone to read from Jeremiah 51:8-15, Revelation chapter 18, and Zechariah chapter 14, where Christ fights against those who possess the earth. After His victory," the angel said, "there will be one flock and one Shepherd. There will be no need for light. The Lamb of God will be the Light. There will be no sickness, no tears, and no deaths. There will only be eternal joy and God will be the ruler. There will be only one language. Only one song. And no need for a translator!"

"And, Dumitru," he continued, "a word of warning. If you keep anything from the American people that you are told, I will punish you severely." [Dumitru comes from a punitive culture where this is the way you talk to get someone's attention.]

"How will I know that this is for real - that it will really happen?" I asked.

"As a sign that I have spoken to you, tomorrow before you wake I will send someone to bring you a bed, and at noon I will send you a car and a bucket of honey. After which, I will send someone to pay your rent."

Then the angel left.


In an earlier account, Dumitri recorded the following:

I was terrified. "Why did you bring me here to die? Why didn't you let me die where my parents died?"

"Don't be afraid," [the angel] spoke calmly, quietly. "The pure of heart will not be punished. Those who are untouched by the sins of others, who are faithful and true will hear the trumpet of God and the voice of God's angel crying 'Wake up! They will be told where to go."

"And where will they go?"

The helicopter soared again. I caught my breath, for as I looked down, my eyes swept across beautiful cities. Two rivers flowed through one of them and growing alongside the other was vast, lush forest. "This is your refuge when the times of tribulation fall upon California. Your family and all those who hear the voice of the Lord will understand the message of God's mighty trumpet."
