Ephriam Come Home









Prophet T. E. Deckard


As we begin to prepare for this coming flu virus that is going to sweep this world and kill millions, we need to understand what is going on and why there is a need to prepare.


The Apostle Paul spoke of perilous times that would be here on this earth in the last days. As you read the first seven verses here, you will be able to see how we fit very well into them.


These are Perilous times - people ever Learning...

... in no way attaining Knowledge of the Truth 


II Timothy 3:1-7

1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.


We have become this and not able to see that we have. It is always this way; none of us can see the error of his way.

G-d  does nothing without first revealing it to His prophets...

 ...signs will be given a characteristic of His prophets


Amos 3:1-7

1 Hear this word that the LORD hath spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying,

2 You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.

3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

4 Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing?

5 Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is for him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all?

6 Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?

7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.


The L-rd is about to stand up His prophets all over the face of this earth, and they are going to work the works of G-d, undeniable works that no man can discredit. Signs will once again be given that will distinguish the true prophets from all others.

I received the vision for this coming plague well in advance of any announcement by any health organization. That can only mean that I saw the vision and interpreted it correctly. Now it will be up to the people as they are now being warned to make the choice to prepare or to not prepare.

The vision was correctly conveyed... must choose whether or not to prepare

Be patient as there are a number of scriptures that we need to consider as we come to an understanding of how to prepare.

Genesis 6:1-22

1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.

17 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.

18 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee.

19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.

20 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.

21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.

22 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.

In verses 1-4, we find the reason why G-d destroyed the earth. The sons of G-d were fallen angels that became flesh and took the women of the earth and had children by them. This created giants (Nephlim) that were not    G-dís creation. I will try at another time to give the vision G-d gave me of the return of these Nephlim in the latter days.

G-d foretold to Noah the coming judgment...

...only Noah was given the necessary instructions of how to prepare

In verse 13, the L-rd tells Noah that He is about to destroy the earth. It is important to note that G-d told someone first before He brought judgment. The next important thing is that He began to give specific instructions as to how He was going to save Noah and his family. Noah was told exactly how the boat was to be built: the size, the kind of wood, and to pitch it inside and out with a tar-type substance. You have to remember that in the days Noah lived on the earth it rained not, but rather there was a midst that covered the earth. Noah had no understanding of rain or what this boat was. Noah simply trusted G-d. There is going to have to be faith and trust in what G-d is now saying to this generation.

Faith & trust essential for this generation....

...don't miss this last  & greatest transition!

People are writing me and saying that G-d will protect them because they are Christians. They donít think that they need to do anything but wait upon Him. I remind all of you of the Jews during the Holocaust. They were told by the rabbis that G-d would deliver them and 6 million of them perished. I keep saying over and over, we are being transitioned into another place with G-d. It is like the times on this earth when G-d was moving within the various denominations. There has always been that time He moved on and most did not even know that He left them. That is exactly what is going on today. G-d is moving on to what will be the last and greatest transition this earth will ever know until the return of Yeshua (Jesus).

Key to surviving this coming plague... Noah, do all that G-d commands

Noah was told of what animals, birds and creeping things G-d wanted to save. In verse 22, we see the secret of Noahís success with G-d. He did all G-d commanded. Notice not half but all he was commanded. This is the key to surviving this plague that will soon come.

Genesis 7:1-24

1 And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.

3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

5 And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.

6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.

7 And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.

8 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,

9 There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.

10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.

11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.

13 In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;

14 They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.

15 And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life.

16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.

17 And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.

18 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.

19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.

20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered. 

21 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:

22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.

23 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.

24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.


Can you imagine how the people must have laughed and mocked Noah. Noah knew he had heard from G-d and followed the plans G-d gave him precisely.

Noah precisely followed the plan of G-d...

...noncompliance & inconstancy would have  jeopardized him and his family

Genesis 8:20-22 

20 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.  

21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.


If Noah had not done as the L-rd told him to do they would have all died in the flood.

The account of Joseph is such a wonderful illustration of how G-d will protect and bring forth His own. There he was in prison and interpreted the dream of a baker and butler that ended up bringing him before Pharaoh. If you remember, his brothers did not like Joseph and hated the dreams he had.

Joseph given the interpretation of the dream....

...received wisdom of how to prepare

Genesis 41:1-44

1 And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.

2 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well favoured kine and fatfleshed; and they fed in a meadow.

3 And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the river, ill favoured and leanfleshed; and stood by the other kine upon the brink of the river.

4 And the ill favoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the seven well favoured and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke.

5 And he slept and dreamed the second time: and, behold, seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good.

6 And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted with the east wind sprung up after them.

7 And the seven thin ears devoured the seven rank and full ears. And Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it was a dream.

8 And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh.

9 Then spake the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I do remember my faults this day:

10 Pharaoh was wroth with his servants, and put me in ward in the captain of the guard's house, both me and the chief baker:

11 And we dreamed a dream in one night, I and he; we dreamed each man according to the interpretation of his dream.

12 And there was there with us a young man, an Hebrew, servant to the captain of the guard; and we told him, and he interpreted to us our dreams; to each man according to his dream he did interpret.

13 And it came to pass, as he interpreted to us, so it was; me he restored unto mine office, and him he hanged.

14 Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh.

15 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of thee, that thou canst understand a dream to interpret it.

16 And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.

17 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, In my dream, behold, I stood upon the bank of the river:

18 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, fatfleshed and well favoured; and they fed in a meadow:

19 And, behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor and very ill favoured and leanfleshed, such as I never saw in all the land of Egypt for badness:

20 And the lean and the ill favoured kine did eat up the first seven fat kine:

21 And when they had eaten them up, it could not be known that they had eaten them; but they were still ill favoured, as at the beginning. So I awoke.

22 And I saw in my dream, and, behold, seven ears came up in one stalk, full and good:

23 And, behold, seven ears, withered, thin, and blasted with the east wind, sprung up after them:

24 And the thin ears devoured the seven good ears: and I told this unto the magicians; but there was none that could declare it to me.

25 And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath shewed Pharaoh what he is about to do.

26 The seven good kine are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven years: the dream is one.

27 And the seven thin and ill favoured kine that came up after them are seven years; and the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind shall be seven years of famine.

28 This is the thing which I have spoken unto Pharaoh: What God is about to do he sheweth unto Pharaoh.

29 Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt:

30 And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land;

31 And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine following; for it shall be very grievous.

32 And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.

33 Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.

34 Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers  over the land, and take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years.

35 And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.

36 And that food shall be for store to the land against the seven years of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish not through the famine.

37 And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants.

38 And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?

39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:

40 Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.

41 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.

42 And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck;

43 And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.

44 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.

Pharaoh believed Joseph's interpretation...

...Pharaoh understood Joseph was given wisdom for plan of survival

After Pharaoh could not find anyone who could interpret his dream, he found out about Joseph and called for him. Joseph interpreted the dream detail by detail. In turn, the king placed him over his entire kingdom. The king said that all were to do exactly as Joseph commanded them. Joseph gave exact orders as to how everything was to be done. His orders were followed, and Egypt was spared in the time of the famine. Here again, someone heard from G-d and gave what they heard. Then, it was believed that what Joseph heard was true, and Pharaoh did exactly as he was told to survive the coming famine.

Understand G-d's order during times of judgment...

...the prophet who foretold the coming judgment is given the instructions for survival

The scriptures are given to us as examples to use during our time here on this earth. It seems easy enough to understand the order the L-rd uses during times of judgment. The   L-rd gives someone a dream, vision or visitation. That prophet in turn begins to tell the people what G-d has given them. The people then decide whether they believe what the prophet said to be truth or a lie. If they believe it to be a lie, then they pay no attention to the instructions that the prophet gives them to escape the judgment. On the other hand, if they believe the prophet of the coming judgment they need to hear, then they do what G-d has given him in order for them to survive the judgment.

G-d demands obedience... 

...His protection directly related to our compliance

Last month I showed through scripture that if the Hebrew children had not done exactly as G-d told them, the death angel would have taken their first born along with the Egyptians. It all has to do with who is going to follow instructions and who isnít.

G-d gave this prophet the vision... heed the instructions of preparation

It all seems so simple to this prophet. G-d gave me the vision which we have confirmation as to a coming plague of flu. It is a fact and is not a figment of my imagination. If we know it is coming, then we are fools if we do not prepare. I think it is also important to note that the same people that G-d gave the dreams, visions, and visitations to were the same people He gave His plan of escape to.


You must begin to prepare by buying extra canned goods and food that you can store. Rotate this food according to the expiration dates on the products. You need to realize that family and friends that you are trying desperately to convince of the coming plague, that think you have gone crazy, will be at your door one day hoping for a handout of food. Store as much food as you think you are going to need for you and your family. If you can store enough for a year that should be enough and more than you will need.

Water, Food, Sanitation...

...Heat, Light, & Cooking

Consider all areas of survival: water, food, sanitation, heat, light, and cooking. Things such as toilet paper, toothpaste, candles and oil for lamps, gasoline storage, water storage, matches, medical supplies, as well as special needs for babies and pets.


Donít become overwhelmed; take it one step at a time. Here a little, there a little. But do not procrastinate. Buy several different items, rather than a large quantity of one item.


Start with planning for 1 or 2 weeks and get the supplies you need together. Then, progress to 1 month, then 3 months, until you reach your goal.
