Willie Felix Carter, Candidate for President of the United States of America 2016

I was first shown in a vision of the Lord, in the spring of 1980, that I was being condition to be the President of the United States of America. I was also shown in a vision in the spring of 1983 the complete destruction of our nation, the United States of America by fire as a great furnace, and commanded of the Lord to go on a 35 day fast that God turn his wrath from America. I wanted to eat and the Lord said: once that I get started with my wrath, I will not be turning back and you will wish that you had gone on a fast, so I asked the Lord, Lord help me on a fast, and he did, I was then commanded of the Lord to enter the race to become the President of the United States of America, I did even unto the present time, I am yet running to become the President, only God knows the date and time appointed for me to become the President. I love God and all of the people of this great nation and I hope to serve as your next President 2016.
