“For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall
prepare himself to the battle?” I Cor. 14:8
When A Nation Gives Heed To Seducing Spirits!
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron."
I Timothy 4:1-2
"These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever. And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgement upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him."
"For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, saith the Lord. They have belied the Lord, and said, It is not he, neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine."
In this issue of the Last Trumpet, we will examine the latest and current conditions of our nation and the world in the light of the Word of God and the spiritual discernment that the Scripture gives to us. Never has a nation been so seduced into wickedness and perversion as this one has. Never has there been such crookedness and evil manifested so openly. It is because of what the Bible calls "seducing spirits" that have enticed nearly an entire population into open defiance of the Almighty and his commandments. We live in a nation that contains hundreds of thousands of initiated, practicing witches, and millions more that are dabbling in witchcraft. We live in a nation that is entertained by sex, violence, and the old Roman spirit of the world of sports. What has happened to the values that this country once had? Where has it all gone? Without a doubt, these are the days of the seducing spirits that we have been warned about as in the above Bible verses. Without a doubt, these are the final days before our Lord's return. As remnant Christians, we will be strong and do exploits in the realm of spiritual warfare. We know the devices of the enemy and are not ignorant of them. As a former astrologer, numerologist, and palm reader saved by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and delivered by the power of his blood, I have spent over 19 years publishing this newsletter. The Last Trumpet Newsletter is a continual sighing and crying against the evil of a world managed by the Masterminds of the Great Illuminati Conspiracy. My purpose is to expose their works and lift up prayer against them. The power of the Almighty will prevail!
Witchcraft Is Out Of The Broom Closet!
Witchcraft is not harmless fun, and it is no joke. The Bible takes it seriously in Deuteronomy 18, Galatians 5:20, and in many other places. All who do such things are an abomination to the Lord and are excluded from the Kingdom of God. Witchcraft was once secretive and covert and had been for thousands of years. Emperors, kings, and rulers of all kinds secretly used witches as advisors, just as the Clintons do in the White House at this very time. We are now seeing open witchcraft almost everywhere, and this has never happened before. It is a certain sign of the last days. Here let it be noted that in England, the Church of England clergy are joining Druids and pagans this month at a conference designed to reconcile the traditions. The conference between witches and the Church of England clergy is called "Spirit of the Land 2000". The conference is described as a reconciliation meeting and Christian-Druid dialog for the New Millennium. (1) Mark Graham of the Pagan Federation said, "We celebrate our connectedness to nature and I will sometimes dance naked around a fire. They aren't doing much dancing around a fire naked at matins or evensong but perhaps they should. Perhaps they will like it." (2) This sort of blasphemy is pending in many other mainstream denominations as well! Modern-day Judas Iscariots are everywhere! Does your church subscribe to such things? Find out!
As mentioned in the June issue of the Last Trumpet, Dr. James Dobson and his respected mainstream "Focus on the Family" organization has endorsed the witchcraft training manuals known as the Harry Potter books. Dobson's reasoning is that these books teach the good and bad forces, and that good always wins. This is the same concept that was the prevailing thought in the classic film, "The Wizard of Oz." In the Wizard of Oz movie, there were the wicked witches of the East and West and the "good witches" of the North and South. There was also the Emerald City where the wizard ruled. This is blasphemy directed at the throne of God, because Revelation 4:3 tells us that God's throne is surrounded by a rainbow of emerald. I will cover this more in a subsequent issue, but I can say at this time that the movie, The Wizard of Oz, is pure witchcraft and was designed as a spellbinding tool to mesmerize a nation of children with Illuministic doctrine. There is no such thing as "white magic" or "good witchcraft." It is all of the devil and cursed of God.
On July 8th, yet another Harry Potter book is to be released to the children of the world. These books do untold damage, as they glorify witchcraft and bring our precious youth ever closer to the powers of darkness. Unlike the previous Harry Potter books, there is absolute secrecy prior to the release of this one. (3) In addition to that, the July 8th date is 18 days after the witches' sabat of Midsummer, and in occult numerology, the number 18 is 3x6 or 666. This is no coincidence, I can assure you! Incidentally, one more thing regarding the Wizard of Oz is that on May 24th, the pair of ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz movie sold at a Christie's auction in New York for exactly 666,000 dollars. (4)
Everyday we are seeing more and more blatant witchcraft being flaunted by "role models." Famous people, or should I say infamous people, are touting the virtues and excitement of "New Age" witchcraft. There seems to be an insatiable appetite for the occult among all ages, and it is because they are being unknowingly enticed from the inside by seducing spirits. Look around and the obvious facts will prove this to be true.
The University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh is offering a course this fall called "Gnosticism." (5) The word "gnostic" means "wise one" as does the word Wicca. Gnosticism is just another name for witchcraft. This course, taught by Dr. Kathleen Corley, meets the humanities requirement for the university and will no doubt be a popular course. Many other universities have such courses, and some even have courses labeled "ceremonial magick."
There are millions of people all around us that are entertaining spirits, and spirits are entertaining them. The actress Shirley MacLaine, who has been known to spend nights inside the "Great Pyramid" in Egypt charging her crystals, has recently revealed her intimate love affair with Charlemagne, founder of the "Holy Roman Empire."
She said this happened in another life nearly 1300 years ago and again in this life when Charlemagne was reincarnated as Olaf Palme, the late Prime Minister of Sweden. (6) This story was in the New York Post, and the headline was "Shirley's Lovemaking Raises Dead."
In London, ghostbusters have been hired by the government to hunt for the spirit that is causing trouble amid the splendors of Hampton Court Palace. They are looking for the ghost of Catherine Howard, King Henry VIII's fifth wife, who was beheaded at his command. Richard Wiseman of the University of Hertfordshire is in charge of the search. (7) As true Christians, we know that all such spiritual activity is the work of evil spirits impersonating dead people. I am truly amazed, however, that so many who once laughed and joked about such things are now involved and taking these things seriously.
Asheville, North Carolina, Center Of Witchcraft!
Asheville, North Carolina, a city of about 68,000, has become a power center for witchcraft! The city of Asheville and the surrounding area has about 20,000 initiated witches, and the number is growing. (8) This city of Asheville, which is the home of Billy Graham and his training center, is now being labeled America's new freak capital. Lexington Avenue in Asheville has become like San Francisco in the 1960's and is drawing every kind of spirit-driven person from throughout the United States. Witches call this city "the city of light." The witches believe that Asheville is located in the midst of intersecting vortexes, which creates an energy source that connects them to the cosmos. (9) In the occult it is believed that such vortexes cause the border of the astral plane to become very thin, which allows surges of great power from the spirit world.
The amazing thing about all of this is that most of the witches, who are attracted to Asheville like bees are to honey, do not know the true reason for the attraction. The power that they are feeling is coming from the very headquarters of the Illuminati in the United States, Biltmore Mansion and Estate. I have been there twice and have felt the forces of Satan himself in this massive and mysterious mansion. It is situated in the Pisgah National Forest and is the secret meeting place of the hierarchy of the Masterminds of the Great Illuminati Conspiracy. I have written about the Biltmore Mansion in detail in a prior issue, and anyone wanting more information on my experiences there may write and request the Biltmore back issue. As Christians, we must pray fervently as the final days unfold before us. So many people around us are speaking and behaving more and more like witches, because this is the generation that is giving heed to seducing spirits.
Moral Bankruptcy By Design!
The Masterminds of the Illuminati's Great Conspiracy know full well that they cannot control people who have morals and a sense of decency. Since the conspirators' ultimate goal is absolute control of a manageable-sized population by a one-world government under Lucifer, they have brought in a flood of filth to demoralize the population. Sadly, the majority of the people have caved in to participate or at least tolerate the flood of filth from the pits of hell. Everyday we are bombarded with one outrageous thing after another, and people don't seem to care much anymore. It is exactly as the weeping prophet Jeremiah said it would be in Jeremiah 6:15, which says, "Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? Nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord." We have become a nation that is embarrassed by nothing and cannot blush, which reveals what great hardness of heart prevails in our troubled land.
As I begin to reveal some of the things that are now happening regarding immorality, I want to make it clear to every reader that I do so with a heavy heart. We all must get our heads out of the sand and start praying and rebuking the filth and sin rather than making believe it is not there. It is true that God is love, but he is also a consuming fire depending on where you stand. I hope and pray that this newsletter interrupts complacent so-called Christians out of their comfort zones. We need believers, not make-believers. Let us look at the ugly truth of how things are and deal with it in spiritual warfare, for this nation is sick unto death.
Recently, the New York Daily News reported a headline story saying two million Americans are addicted to internet or "web" sex. (10) With their right hands on the mouse and their foreheads in front of the screen, millions are tapping into hell's commerce and destroying their souls, as they bring a massive pornography supermarket right into their own homes and offices. Perversion is everywhere from the government to churches and in every strata of life. A high-ranking bishop in the Church of England, the Right Reverend Richard Harries, Bishop of Oxford, recently stated, "Homosexuals are equal to heterosexuals in the eyes of God and should not be condemned for being gay." (11) In the United States, the Presbyterian Church's highest court approved the local church's right to conduct religious ceremonies celebrating "gay unions" as long as they don't use the word "marriage." The 16-member high tribunal ruled that these same-sex couples may have a ceremony called "holy union." (12) Have they never read about Sodom or read Romans, chapter one?
The homosexual movement, which is condemned throughout the Bible, is getting preferential treatment from every direction. We already know about the State of Vermont becoming the State of Vermin by being the first state in the union to allow queers to marry with full legal acknowledgement and benefits. On June 8th, a Texas court ruled against the state's ban on "gay sex." (13) On that same day, June 8th, the "big three" automakers, Ford, General Motors, and DaimlerChrysler AG, extended full benefits to same-sex partners. To qualify, the queers have to demonstrate that they have lived together in a committed relationship for a minimum of six months. Opposite sex domestic partners are not eligible. (14) It was also reported by Steve Halsberg on WABC radio in New York City that Tipper Gore told actress Ellen Degenerate (misspelled intentionally), "Once Al gets into the presidency, you and Anne Hecht will be able to get married, perhaps even right in the White House." (15) We have also recently learned that the Israeli Supreme Court in Jerusalem ruled in favor of a lesbian couple both being registered as mothers of a boy, who was conceived with donated sperm. The landmark ruling was headlined "Sodom and Gomorrah." (16)
What kind of effect has all of this had on society? I do not watch television, but from the reports I have read, the evil of that media is overwhelming. In a recent episode of "Dawson's Creek", a prime time television program, two young men passionately kissed each other. (17) Are you allowing your children to watch trash like that? You will answer to God for it! In the city of New Orleans, a local support group was given the use of a large funeral parlor for the city's first ever "gay prom." The event was entitled, "The prom to die for." (18) Fifty high school-aged boys and girls, some dressed in drag, danced the night away. I maintain that if Christians don't start standing up and fighting this evil, fearful things are on the horizon. We have also learned that Western Washington University recently sponsored an event called "National Outdoor Intercourse Day." (19) I cannot even comment on that, but it shows how far gone we are as a nation and what is becoming of the generation that is supposed to run this world in the near future. I can certainly understand why the world must end!
In the realm of the once-respected world of amateur sports known as the Olympics, we find the depths of moral depravity. The Olympics have always been occultic but now we have learned that 100,000 condoms have been ordered for the competitors of the forthcoming Sydney Olympics. The original order was for 50,000, but it was determined that twice as many would be needed. They will be colored gold, silver, and bronze and will be dispensed from large bins for the athletes. (20) Read the Bible verses on page one again. They have come to pass!
The Tightening Grip Of Global Controls!
Now that society has been spiritually weakened and neutralized by immorality, we are seeing strange things happening as the Illuminati begins to tighten its grip. We are continually hearing about gun control, and the whole nation is wondering why gasoline and other fuel prices are so high. It is all part of the plot to bring forth the new globalism or absolute control and micromanagement of every human being on earth. The Illuminati Masterminds know that if they are to manage all nations for their so-called "god" that they call Lucifer, they must "level off" or bring down the more powerful and wealthy nations and shift much of that wealth to weaker and poorer nations. The conspirators also know that they must disarm any nation that would put up too much resistance to forced submission. A quick view of history shows us what has happened in various nations after gun controls were imposed. In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control, and from that year until 1953, twenty million people were rounded up and exterminated. Turkey established gun control in 1915, and over the next three years, 1.5 million Armenians were rounded up and exterminated. Germany established gun control in 1938, and over the next seven years, 13 million people were rounded up and exterminated. China established gun control in 1935, and over the next 17 years, twenty million people were rounded up and exterminated. In 1964, Guatemala established gun control, and during the next 17 years, 100,000 people were rounded up and exterminated. In 1970, Uganda established gun control, and during the next eight years, 300,000 people were rounded up and exterminated. In 1956, Cambodia established gun control, and from 1975 to 1977, one million "educated people" were rounded up and exterminated. Thus, in the 20th century, 56 million people unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated. Now Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and others of that ilk are pushing like mad to disarm the people of the United States, and if they succeed, we know from history what will follow. Sadly, history teaches us that men learn nothing from history.
Why Have Fuel Prices Skyrocketed?
In the Midwestern United States, gasoline prices have risen from 1.49 to 2.69 over a short period of time in many areas. So-called emergency meetings have been called by various levels of government, and no answers have been found. It is all a great mystery and getting more mysterious according to reports everywhere. (21) For those of us who understand that there is an Illuminati conspiracy, it is no mystery. We know that years ago the Illuminists foisted NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) upon the United States, and massive amounts of industry exited this country and went to Mexico and other nations. Wealth has shifted and is shifting as part of the plot of globalism. The Illuminists are now attacking something that is essential for any nation to be powerful and successful, the transportation system. The reason why China and Russia were unable to excel for so many years is that they had a poor transportation system. In many cases, all they had were a one-track railroad and a very few trucks. The United States has a massive and efficient transportation system with extensive railroads, many thousands of semi trucks, airplanes, and barge systems on waterways, and all of this ability to move goods efficiently has made this nation great. By nearly doubling the price of fuel, a choke-hold has been put on this system and the prices of everything that has to be transported will rise tremendously very soon. Inflation and other economic cancers will soon follow. Here let it be noted that I recently had a conversation with a postal official, who told me that for every penny that the cost of gasoline increases, it is one million dollars more in expense for the U.S. Postal Service. The prices have not gone up by one penny, however, but in some cases 60 to 80 cents. This same official also told me that the Postal Service was not being hurt by this, because they knew it was going to happen! The reason why no one can figure out why these prices are climbing at a runaway rate is because the problem is created in the mysterious chambers of the Illuminati, which hides itself in the upper levels of the Masonic Lodge.
Last October, I and two others with me were in the Masonic House of the Temple, which is 13 blocks from the White House in Washington, D.C. The Lord was with us, and our tour guide, who was a high-level Mason, took us into the meeting chamber of the Council of 33. I counted the 33 chairs and memorized the layout of the area. I asked the high-level Mason, "What is the nature of business in these meetings held in this room?" He would not tell me any specifics, but he did say, "A lot of decisions involving a lot of money."
More Footprints Of Satan!
In Job 1:7, the Word of God tells us, "And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it." We can certainly see the footprints of Satan at this time, as he continues to walk to and fro in the earth and moves up and down in it. The United Nations recently held meetings regarding the women of the world with Hillary Clinton as one of the chief speakers. From these meetings came a new U.N. treaty known as CEDAW, which stands for "The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women." (22) The Clinton Administration is now pushing like mad to have the U.S. Senate ratify this U.N. treaty. The following is a partial list of directives of the new CEDAW United Nations Treaty: The nation of Kyrgyzstan has been ordered to legalize lesbianism. Italy has been criticized for allowing "conscientious objection" for doctors who do not want to perform abortions. Mexico and other governments have been directed to change laws on abortion and to correct the "lack of access" to easy and swift abortion. China has been ordered to legalize prostitution. Croatia has been criticized for allowing church-related organizations to adversely influence women's rights. Armenia has been directed to use the educational system and electronic media to combat the traditional stereotype of women in "the noble role of motherhood." Belarus was reprimanded for celebrating Mother's Day, claiming the committee is concerned by the prevalence of sex-role stereotypes, as also exemplified by such symbols as a Mother's Day and a Mother's Award, which it sees as encouraging women's traditional roles. (23) If this CEDAW treaty is ratified by the United States, it becomes the law of the land in our country. Pray without ceasing!
In another plan for control of the population of the world, President Clinton and former Senator George McGovern have proposed a new feeding program. McGovern is currently the U.S. Representative to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization. The plan that President Clinton has proposed is for the United States to establish an "International school lunch program" for Africa, Asia, and Latin America, among others. (24) I recall that just last summer, I and several others with me were in the United Nations in New York and were told by a U.N. guide that when food is given to starving people, "They must accept immunizations and attend U.N. schools or they are denied the food." I wanted clarification, so I asked, "Do you mean that if they do not take your immunizations and go to your schools, they are left to starve?" The guide said "Yes, that is right." I was shocked at the admission, but it does fit the profile of the beast system of antichrist perfectly.
Abortion On The High Seas!
There is so much to pray about, and our prayer meetings are getting longer every week. Now we have learned that a Dutch doctor is planning to launch an abortion ship to sail to countries where abortion is outlawed. Dr. Rebecca Gomperts, the founder of a group called "Women on Waves", said that the plan is to sail just outside a nations territorial waters to perform the abortions. (25) Women would be picked up in harbors and sail out to sea, where the murderous procedure would be performed, and would then be taken back. Financing is expected to come from the Dutch Government and the U.S. based Ford Foundation. (26) The ship is referred to as a floating clinic and has been named "Sea Change." Dr. Gomperts is the former ship's doctor of the Rainbow Warrior, a ship owned by the organization "Greenpeace." When the ship is in harbor, it will provide contraceptives and serve as a training school for doctors who want to learn how to do abortions. (27) In response to protests by pro-life groups, Dr. Gomperts had this to say, "I don't care much about them...I don't have moral problems with abortion; it is assistance, that's it. A fetus that can't survive on it's own outside the mother's womb is in my view not a child." (28)
The End Is Near!
We are warned in Ezekiel 7:3, "Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations." Very soon, the Almighty will interrupt the activities and enterprises of this wicked world with the brightness of His coming. We continue to see His Almighty hand warning us of the wrath to come. Storms have been sweeping across much of our nation, such as the ones that left 15 counties in Wisconsin areas of disaster. Hail as large as softballs pommeled much of the area as tornadoes swept through. (29)
The earthquakes also continue! On June 3, Tokyo, Japan, was rattled by an earthquake with a magnitude of 5.8 on the Richter scale. (30) On June 4, the very next day, a powerful quake measuring 7.9 in magnitude struck Indonesia killing 117 people and injuring 700 others. (31) The following day, a quake with a magnitude of 5.9 hit the Turkish capital of Ankara. (32) The Lord often sends his judgements in sets of three.
In the United States, we have massive flooding in some areas and severe drought in others. On June 5, twelve massive forest fires spread through Central Florida. (33) All of these things that are happening around us should be taken as warnings that we are living at the very eve of destruction.
In closing, I want to encourage everyone by saying that the Lord is in charge, and that the power of the blood of Jesus Christ brings complete deliverance and victory. The fervent, effectual prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Please join us in prayer wherever you are, as we pray from 6:00 P.M. until at least 9:00 P.M. every Saturday. Amazing things are happening. Thanks to all of you who support this ministry; we appreciate it very much. Grace and Peace be multiplied unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
