The Five Angels of the Continents

By Samuel Doctorian

Message given by Dr. Samuel Doctorian, 16th August 1998 on the Isle of Patmos, Greece.

I was here alone in a house on the Isle of Patmos for several weeks to pray and seek the Lord. I found a little chapel – St. Nicolas' Chapel – where no one ever

goes. I went there and poured out my heart before God. I found a rock on the side of a hill where I would go to sit and pray – meditation and reading the Bible. I ate very little during those days. Several times I went to the cave of John where he saw the great Revelation.

While meditating for one month in this solitary place, I thought, "I wonder if the Lord will ever send a tenth angel?" I'd seen angels nine times before – in:




Amman, Jordan


Beirut in the midst of war

And in Egypt, I saw an angel that delivered a woman from being hanged. The angel physically awakened me at 3:00 in the morning and told me to get out of the country immediately. To this day I am grateful to the Lord. I don't know what might have happened to me if the angel had not come. Heaven will tell that one day. So I wondered whether I would see an angel for the tenth time. There were times when I was praying when I felt such a presence that I asked, "Lord, I wonder if an angel is coming now?" But it was not so. One night I even dreamt about an angel. He told me to fly in my dream and I did – but that was only a dream. I wanted to see a real angel, as I had seen nine times before.

On June 20 at 3:50am, here in Patmos suddenly my room was full of light, and there are no lights around here. It is a house all by itself at the end of the road near a monastery. Lo and behold, when I was wide awake, I saw five beautiful angels. I saw their faces – perfect and human-like, but full of light. I saw their eyes, their hair, their hands.

On my right side were two angels, and when I looked to the left I saw three other angels with wings. They had beautiful white robes falling to the floor – something I can't describe with human words. I wondered why five angels had come, but I was trembling and shaking. I wanted to cry, but I could not.

Just before I saw these angels in the Spirit, I had seen myself in a great meeting of multitudes, and I was preaching in English. An interpreter was on my left with dark hair and a grey suit, but I can't remember what language he was speaking. I was prophesying this message: "My church, you preach love, you teach love, but you need to practice love – to show love. There is a need of unity in my body. There are many divisions among you. My spirit will not move and work where there is no unity. There is carnality in my church; too much uncleanness in my church. I desire and I want a holy people. I died to made you holy."

While I was prophesying in the spirit I was trembling. My eyes opened and I was looking at the great multitude. And suddenly, in the midst of the prophecy, these mighty angels appeared. I went back from the pulpit and thought I was going to fall down. I am now wide-awake, but this is all happening in the spirit. Some power helped me not to fall down and I wondered what was happening.

Then suddenly the first angel on my right side said, "We are five angels from the five continents. We are here to give you messages from the five continents of the world." The moment I heard that, I also heard the multitude crying out, "Ohhh, Ohhh, Ohhh," I believe that the multitude saw the angels also. Somehow the Lord showed me that in the days to come, in many parts of the world, God is going to reveal Himself through ministering angels. It's going to happen publicly; it's going to happen in churches – thousands of people seeing angels at the same time. They will be ministering to the Body in these last days. Then came this message from the angels: "What you see and hear, tell it to the nations." So it's not something for me to keep to myself. Whether they accept it or don't accept it, I have to tell it to the nations.


The first angel said: "I have a message for all of Asia." When he said that, in a split few seconds, I could see all of China, India, the Asian countries like Vietnam, Laos – I've never been to those countries. I saw the Philippines, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. And then the angel showed me all of Papua, New Guinea, Irian Jaya and down to Australia and New Zealand.

"I am the angel of Asia," he said. And in his hand I saw a tremendous trumpet that he is going to blow all over Asia. Whatever the angel said, it's going to happen with the trumpet of the Lord all over Asia. Millions are going to hear the mighty voice of the Lord. Then the angel said, "There shall be disaster, starvation – many will die from hunger. Strong winds such as have never happened before. A great part shall be shaken and destroyed. Earthquakes will take place all over Asia and the sea will cover the earth.

A few weeks later I heard the news of villages completely wiped out and washed into the sea in Papua, New Guinea. Thousand of lives in great jeopardy. That happened a few weeks ago, but the angel told me it is going to happen all over Asia. "The earth will fall into the sea," I heard the angel say, "Part of Australia will be shaken. Australia will be divided, and a great part will go under the ocean." This was frightening – I wondered whether I was hearing right. But the angel said, "Millions will die in China and in India. Nation will be against nation, brother against brother. Asians will fight each other. Nuclear weapons shall be used, killing millions." Twice I heard the words, "Catastrophic! Catastrophic!" then the angel said, "Financial crisis will come to Asia. I will shake the world."

I was trembling while the angel was speaking. Then he looked at me and smiled and said, "There shall be the greatest spiritual awakening – bondages will be broken. Barriers will be removed. And all over Asia – China – India – people will turn to Christ. In Australia there shall be tremendous revival." I heard the angel of Asia say, " It is the last harvest." Then as if the Lord were speaking, he said, "I shall prepare My church for the return of Christ." I was happy with such good news after the message of judgment. All the time the five angels were in my room I could feel their presence – it was tremendous.

I also heard that the big river in China is in tremendous danger of thousands of houses being destroyed in flooding.

SECOND ANGEL: The Middle East

Then I saw that the second angel had a sickle in his hand, such as is used in harvesting. The second angel said, "Harvest time has come in Israel and the countries all the way to Iran." I saw those countries in a few split seconds. "All of Turkey and those [______see footnote] countries that have refused me and refused my message of love shall hate each other and kill one another." I saw the angel raise the sickleThe Muslims use the sickle as one of their symbols. and come down on all the Middle East countries.

I saw Iran, Persia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, all of Georgia – Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel, all of Asia Minor – full of blood. I saw blood all over these countries. And I saw fire; nuclear weapons were used in many of those countries. Smoke rising from everywhere. Sudden destruction – men destroying one another.

I heard these words, "Israel, Oh Israel, the great judgment has come." The angel said, "The chosen, the church, the remnant, shall be purified. The Spirit of God shall prepare the children of God." I saw fires rising to heaven. The angel said, "This is the final judgment. My church shall be purified, protected and ready for the final day. Men will die from thirst. Water shall be scarce all over the Middle East. Rivers shall dry up, and men will fight for water in those countries." The angel showed me that the United Nations shall be broken in pieces because of the crisis in the Middle East. There shall be no more United Nations. The angel with the sickle shall reap the harvest.


Then one of the angels with wings showed me Europe from one end to the other – from the north all the way down to Spain and Portugal. In his hand he had a scale of measurement. I saw him fly over Europe and I heard the words, "I am grieved. I am grieved. Unrighteousness, uncleanness, ungodliness – all over Europe. The sin has risen to heaven. The Holy Spirit is grieved." I saw the rivers of Europe flooding and covering millions of houses. Millions drown. Just a few weeks after seeing this, I read in the news that Czechoslovakia had the worst flooding ever. I did not know this before I saw the vision and heard what the angels told me.

Suddenly I heard of earthquakes all over Europe. "Countries that have had no earthquakes shall be shaken," said the angel. And suddenly, in my spirit, I saw the Eiffel Tower in Paris crumbling, falling down. A great part of Germany was destroyed. The great city of London – destruction everywhere. I saw floods all over Scandinavia. I looked to the south and saw Spain and Portugal passing through hunger and great destruction.

Many will die from hunger all over Spain and Portugal. I was disturbed by all this news, and I said, "Lord, what about your children?"

The angel said, "I shall prepare them. They shall be looking for the appearing of the Lord. Many will cry to me in those days and I will save them. I shall perform mighty miracles for them and show them My power."

So in the midst of great destruction, there will be the grace of God in those countries. I was happy that God has His protection over His children.


Now we go to Africa. I saw the fourth angel with wings fly over Africa, and I could see from Capetown in the south all the way to the north of Cairo – I saw all the countries there, more than fifty of them. The angel of Africa had a sword in his hand – a tremendous, sharp sword. Suddenly I heard him say, " Innocent blood has been shed. Divisions among the people, generations far from the Lord – they have killed one another, thousands of people. I have seen my faithful children in Africa, and I shall reward all the faithful in the continent of Africa. I shall bless them abundantly.

I shall control the weather – scorching and burning of the sun in some parts. Great rivers shall dry up, and millions will die from starvation. In other parts, flooding. Foundations shall be shaken. My sword shall judge the unrighteous and the bloodthirsty. So many earthquakes shall happen that rivers shall flow in different directions in the continent, flooding many villages."

I saw great objects falling from the sky over different parts of Africa. "There shall be trembling of the earth like has not been seen since the creation. None shall escape the sword of the Lord." I saw the Nile River drying up. It is the god of Egypt. Fishes dead and stinking all over Egypt. A great part of the middle of Africa will be covered with water – millions dying.

"Lord," I said, "It is all bad news. All destruction. Any good news?"

The Lord said, "The final day has come. Judgment day is here. My love has been refused now, and the end has come."

I was shaking and trembling. I thought I cannot bear it.

FIFTH ANGEL: The Americas

Then I saw the last angel flying over North and South America – all the way from the North Pole down to Argentina. From the east of the U.S.A. to California. I saw in his hand a bowl. The angel said he would pour out over these countries the judgments that were in the bowl. Then I heard the angel say, "No justice anymore. No righteousness. No holiness. Idolatry. Materialism. Drunkenness. Bondage of sin. Shedding of innocent blood – millions of babies being killed before they are born. Families are broken. An adulterous generation. Sodom and Gomorrah is here. The days of Noah are here. False preachers. False prophets. Refusing of my love. Many of them have the imitation of religion, but denying the real power.

When I heard all that, I begged the angel, "Can you not wait for a little while? Don't pour it. Give a chance for repentance." The angel said, "Many times God has spared and has spoken, but they have not listened. His patience has come to an end. Beware, the time has come. They have loved money and pleasure more than they have loved Me." As the angel began to pour from the bowl in his hand, I saw tremendous icebergs melting. When that happened I saw floods all over Canada and North America – all the rivers flooded; destruction everywhere. I heard the world market collapsing with mighty earthquakes, and New York skyscrapers were tumbling – millions dying. [Samuel Doctorian saw this before the Twin Towers fell.]

I saw ships in the ocean sinking. I heard explosions all over the north country. I saw the angel pouring over Mexico and two oceans joining together—the Atlantic and the Pacific. A great part of northern Brazil covered with water, the Amazon River turning into a great sea. Forests destroyed and flooded. Major cities in Brazil destroyed; earthquakes in many places. As the angel poured [out his bowl of judgment], great destruction took place in Chile and Argentina as never before. The whole world was shaking. Then I heard the angel say, "This will happen in a very short time."

I said, "Can't you postpone it? Don't pour these things out all over the globe."

— end of the messages of the five angels —

And suddenly I saw the five angels standing around the globe lifting up their hands and their wings towards heaven and saying, "All glory to the Lord of heaven and earth. Now the time has come and He will glorify His Son. The earth shall be burned and destroyed. All things shall pass away. The new Heaven and New Earth shall come. God shall destroy the works of the devil forever. I shall show My power – how I will protect My children in the midst of all this destruction. Be ready for that day, for the Lord has come."

My room was full of light from the brightness of the angels. Then suddenly the angels ascended up to heaven. As I looked up I saw the angels go in five directions. I know they already have started their duties, their assignments. For more than an hour I could not move. I was wide-awake, trembling from time to time.

I said, "Lord, shall I leave Patmos now?"

He said, "No, I brought you here for a purpose."

I said, "The message from the angels all over the world is not good news. It is judgment, punishment, destruction, devastation. What will people say about me? I've always been a preacher of love, peace and good news."

The answer came, "It is our message. You are the instrument, the channel. What a privilege that God has chosen you to give this message to the nations."

I said, "Lord, Thy will be done." To God be the glory!

The scripture tells us that "....and the end thereof shall be with a flood." [Daniel 9:26] And another scripture reads: "But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of it’s place, and darkness shall pursue his enemies. [Nahum 1:8]

Other Scripture Reference:

1st Thess. 4:13-18; 5:1-11; Hebrews 12:22-29; 2nd Peter 3:1-13

This message was transcribed by Ruthanne Garlock from a tape received in Singapore on August 30th, 1998 from a native named Wee Tiong How. He had just returned from the Isle of Patmos where he attended a prayer retreat with a small group of Singaporeans, and where Samuel Doctorian related this experience to them.

Samuel Doctorian is a naturalized American citizen.


Following is a short biography of Samuel Doctorian

Samuel Doctorian is an Armenian. Like all other Armenian families, his family suffered in the massacres by the Turks in 1915. His father and mother were young children at this time, and they both lost both parents, barbarously slaughtered because they would not deny Christ. Samuel’s parents escaped the massacre, and were later brought up in a Mission Orphanage.

Samuel was born in 1930 in the city of Beirut. When he was six years old, his parents moved to Jerusalem, where they lived until the war in 1948, when for the second time they lost everything and became refugees. When he was nine years old, Samuel became a committed Christian as he stood at the place where Jesus died. It was there he resolved that his whole life would be lived for Christ.

Coming from a poor family, at the age of fourteen, he could not continue his schooling, and began to work in a shoe-maker’s shop. It was while working in the shop in Old Jerusalem that the Lord called him to the ministry - he was sixteen years old. A year later he began his theological studies at Hurlet Nazarene College near Glasgow, in Scotland. After graduation, he was ordained in 1951. Later that year he returned to the Middle East and began his ministry in Jerusalem, later moving to Amman, Jordan. He was married in April, 1952 to Naomi Pashgian. Samuel and Naomi have five children and four grandchildren.

In the month of October 1952, Samuel Doctorian was called by the Lord to start evangelistic work throughout the Middle East - living by faith as he was not sponsored by any denomination. He was used by the Holy Spirit to bring Revival to Aleppo, Beirut, Cyprus and Damascus, and when he went to Egypt he had a revival ministry all over the land that brought tens of thousands to Christ. As a result of a vision, he began the Bible Land Mission in 1959. The Lord has used him in many countries all over the Middle East, Europe, North and South America and other parts of the world to bring a breath of revival. He has led people of all walks of life to the Lord, from Eastern refugees to a European princess. He has been to over 125 countries of the world in all seven Continents.

From Beirut and Jerusalem, Samuel Doctorian seeks to spread the Gospel over the Bible Lands by every possible means, and extend his revival ministry around the world. He has preached for every one of the larger Protestant denominations, and in many Catholic and Orthodox churches too. On two occasions he has preached to Members of Parliament in the House of Commons in London. He is undoubtedly a preacher anointed by the Holy Spirit, and as he preaches with such fervor and power there is always a ready response in his hearers to the Word of God. His messages are colored with vivid illustrations from his personal experiences in many parts of the world. In addition to the unction of the Holy Spirit, Samuel Doctorian exercises a ministry of healing that has brought positive help to many thousands.

His autobiography has sold by the thousands, in many languages around the world. Many people have expressed their appreciation of Samuel Doctorian’s ministry. To God be the Glory!
