Jeremiah 4:26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place [was] a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, [and] by his fierce anger. 


When God’s restraining hand is removed, the destroyer begins his work. Then in our cities the greatest calamities will come.–3MR 314 (1897). {LDE 111.1}

The end is near and every city is to be turned upside down every way. There will be confusion in every city. Everything that can be shaken is to be shaken and we do not know what will come next. The judgments will be according to the wickedness of the people and the light of truth that they have had.–1MR 248 (1902). {LDE 111.3}
O that God’s people had a sense of the impending destruction of thousands of cities, now almost given to idolatry.–Ev 29 (1903). {LDE 111.4}
The time is near when large cities will be swept away, and all should be warned of these coming judgments.–Ev 29 (1910). {LDE 111.5}

The Lord calls for His people to locate away from the cities, for in such an hour as ye think not, fire and brimstone will be rained from heaven upon these cities. Proportionate to their sins will be their visitation. When one city is destroyed, let not our people regard this matter as a light affair, and think that they may, if favorable opportunity offers, build themselves homes in that same destroyed city. . . . {Last Day Events 95.3 statement published 1897}
