“For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall
prepare himself to the battle?” I Cor. 14:8
"And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city."
"Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the Lord."
"And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him? .....And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world."
In this issue of the Last Trumpet, we will examine and consider the lateness of the hour in the light of the events that are currently unfolding before us. As always, the Word of Almighty God brings all of these events into perspective and establishes the faith in our hearts that our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is soon to return and destroy the works of Satan's antichrist kingdom. Signs of the times are everywhere, and while most of the world, and especially most of the professing Christians, are being numbed by the anesthetic of compromise and apathy, the elect remnant of the Almighty is coming fully awake. We are living on the very eve of destruction, and all indicators echo this fact in an ever intensifying crescendo.
On every hand we are hearing and seeing the activities of the Masterminds of the Illuminati's Great Conspiracy to bring into being a one world government. At the same time, we are seeing the massive effort to install an international space station above the earth to monitor the earth and watch over it. This concept is nothing new, and we will realize this if we read the above Bible verses. Just as the people of old wanted a one world city and a tower that reached unto heaven, so this last generation wants a one world government with a space station in the heavens. The eternal and Almighty God was against it before, and He is still against it. He stopped it before, and He will stop it again; this time, for good!
The Space Program, A Modern-Day Tower Of Babel!
Five days ago, I and four others were at the Kennedy Space Center on Merritt Island near Cape Canaveral, Florida. We were there for research and prayer. Having been saved out of the occult by the power of the blood of Jesus Christ, I am always acutely aware of spirits of occultism, and as we went through the areas of the Kennedy Space Center, the powers of occultism were everywhere. A shuttle had just been launched three days before, on Friday, the eighth of September, and another was scheduled to be launched on October fifth. There are twenty more launches scheduled over the next two years for the purpose of building the 13-story International Space Station. (1) While the space shuttle Atlantis was orbiting the earth, the shuttle Discovery was already on the launch pad. As I stood on the observation gantry in launch complex 39, I realized that a race was on, and it was not between nations. This is an international effort, and there was a sense of urgency and acceleration. I remembered Revelation 12:12, which indicates to us that, ".....The devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time." I also thought of Ephesians 6:12, which tells us, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Here let it be noted that the word "high" as used in this Scripture verse means "a lofty place" or "pertaining to the sky." (2) Ephesians 2:2 also came to mind which says, "Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience." Thus, we have ample Bible verses to show that the spirit of disobedience that controls the children of disobedience operates from and is involved with "high places" and is the "prince of the power of the air." It is the age-old spirit of Babel and her children, who desire to build a one-world city or government and a high-tech tower in space. We must also remember that this space station is an international effort and is not one nation racing against another. In Revelation 19:19, we are told,"And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army." Thus, all of the nations of this world regard our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, as their enemy. As true Christians, we are in this world but not of it. We must pray and declare the truth of God's Word and expose the powers of darkness. That is the purpose of this newsletter.
As previously mentioned, everything at the Kennedy Space Center was designed after the occult. A clear example of this is that all space shuttles are launched from launch complex 39 or LC-39. There is no 38 or 40 or any other number, only 39. (3) This is a highly important number in the realm of witchcraft, because it is three 13's. This is also interesting when we remember that the Illuminists chose to make the International Space Station 13 stories high. Another point of interest is that all astronauts upon entering the shuttle must walk along a platform painted with yellow stripes, which they call "the yellow brick road." (4) From this yellow brick road, they take off to a mystical land somewhere over the rainbow. This is all derived from the infamous occult movie classic known as the Wizard of Oz. In that movie, when you traveled beyond the "yellow brick road", you came to a mysterious Emerald City presided over by a wizard, which is a male witch. All of this is Satan's counterfeit, as he was cast out of heaven and knows what it is like there. In Revelation 4:3, we have an amazing description, "And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald."
From this high and lofty place beyond the yellow brick road and over the rainbow, the elitists, or Illuminated ones, plan to rule the world and preside with their master over a one-world government. With their computer system, they will be able to micro-manage the lives of every person on earth. I watched this space station being build as modules and component while I was at the Kennedy Space Center. I watched the engineers and experts through a glass enclosure as they hurriedly worked on this project. I walked through simulated modules, and I am amazed when I reflect back to the 1960's and realize how far the Illuminati has progressed toward their goal of one-world government and a new world order. Even 15 years ago, no one would have believed the recent headline which said, "Americans, Russians Making Space Station Livable." (5) There is much more to be said about the space program and the International Space Station, which will appear in subsequent issues of this newsletter.
The Birth Of The New World Order!
In the September issue of the Last Trumpet, I told the story of the Washington Monument as the fertility object of the New World Order which spewed out pulsating light on New Years' Eve. This represented the reproductive organ of Baal or Satan and caused a conception, which would bring forth a new child or "era" nine months later. Remember that the Washington Monument is a type of Egyptian architecture known as an obelisk, and a quick check at your local library will prove that it represented the reproductive shaft of the sun-god. Thus, nine months later, a new age was to be born. "Mother Earth" and her new child were to be reunited from the astral plane. This mother and child reunion is the spiritual event of the ages and is the final step into the new age of Aquarius. We must remember that the human gestation period is nine months and the ninth month is September. We must also remember that a woman goes into labor before a child is born. It is far beyond coincidence that in the ninth month from that shameful and grandiose display at the national obelisk, world and religious leaders met during the holiday known as "Labor Day" to bring forth the new age of Aquarius and to yield themselves to the new and forthcoming "Aquarian Christ." One Labor Day headline read, "World's Elite Bring Global Crises To U.N. Summit." (6) The event was called "The U.N. Millennium Summit" and was the biggest event in the history of the United Nations. (7) It was an event where enemies could meet and be friends for the purpose of advancing a common cause of Luciferian unity. Fidel Castro, a murderous butcher and flaming communist Red was warmly welcomed, and President Clinton, also known as Mr. Embarrassment, put on his best smile as he enthusiastically shook hands with the Red butcher of Cuba. U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan called that handshake and smile session, "A delightful moment." (8) Another distressing headline said, "Fidel Castro Greeted In Superstar's Welcome At Riverside Church."(9) Have they forgotten that this man is an atheist? Of course, Riverside Church in New York is the common meeting place for the Illuminists, communists, and fellow-travelers.
The U.N. Millennium Summit featured an agreement of over 160 nations called the "Charter for Global Democracy." Some of the goals presented in this charter are: 1. The establishment of a U.N. standing army under the command of the U.N. Secretary-General with the ultimate goal of disarming national armies. This includes personal disarmament with the United Nations controlling all manufacture, sale, distribution, and licensing of firearms. 2. The cancellation of all debt in poor countries and the distribution of the wealth of the Western World. 3. The establishment of "Global Human Rights" to be enforced by International Criminal Court. 4. Total U.N. control of the environment by establishment of U.N. Trusteeship Council to control all of the environment, biospheres, atmosphere, outer space, seas and oceans, and related environment. 5. The establishment of the "Tobin Tax", which taxes all international financial transactions, which would bring 1.5 trillion dollars per year to the U.N. There are many other goals such as these, and they are found in a 410-page report called "Our Global Neighborhood."(10)
All indicators reveal that there is something big about to happen, and there are many strange things going on right now. I have in front of me an advertisement for the Washington Post Newspaper with a very thought-provoking message. The ad features a picture of President Clinton standing in the doorway of Air Force One, and above the picture are the words, "Sooner Or Later Every Political Leader Leaves Washington." Below the picture are the words, "Except One." (11) The implication is that Bill Clinton does not intend to leave office. Time will tell. The concept of global governance is already being innovated in many areas. On August 20, 2000, the London Sunday Telegraph presented the following headline, "Foreign Policemen To Patrol British Streets." The news story states that under a new plan to recruit officers from the European Union; French, German, and Greek nationals will have police powers on British streets. (12) We have been watching the military testing in the United States as they have invaded many of our large cities. Even small towns are seeing unusual things happen. One of my readers in the nearby town of Waupun, Wisconsin, recently sent me the following report."Last night, August 26, at approximately 6 PM, armed military troops were marching down Main Street. They were not in parade formation and local citizens were upset thinking a prison riot or something bad happened. Local police and city officials were not informed beforehand." Incidents such as this are happening all over the country, and if you see anything like this, please let me know. Please remember to pray for us as we are going to be in New York shortly and will be doing research and prayer at the United Nations and elsewhere in this city that is known as the "capital of the world." Your prayers are vital at this time!
The Birth Of The One-World Church!
The unification of the religions of the world into a one-world super church is the goal of an organization called the United Religions' Initiative or URI. On Monday, June 26, six months into the spiritual pregnancy, which began on New Years' Eve, a meeting of the URI was held in San Francisco, California. Spearheading the URI is the Episcopal Bishop Swing of Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. About one year ago, I was in that cathedral to pray against the URI, and upon entering at the main doors, I noticed one of the most powerful objects used in the occult. It was the "cabalistic tree of life" taken from the Cabala. I also watched as people walked a labyrinth at the entrance of the cathedral. The labyrinth is a circular maze with many twists and turns until you reach the very center where you feel a spiritual force come over you, at which time you are said to be illuminated. Grace Cathedral is full of witchcraft. What better place for the global church of antichrist to springboard from?
Just before Labor Day, the URI came to the United Nations in New York City and held the "Millennium World Peace Summit." On September 5, 2000, the prestigious New York Times newspaper presented a full page dedicated to this formation of the one-world church. It was page number A-13, and at the top of that page was the logo of the one-world religions' summit. (13) The logo consisted of the UN logo, surrounded by 13 logos of various religions, as if orbiting the U.N. logo. Here let it be noted that the UN logo consists of a globe marked off by parallels and meridians with a view of the world from the utmost north. This is the vantage point that Lucifer or Satan wanted to rule from. In Isaiah 14:12-13 we read, "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven,I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north." There you have it, Satan views the earth from the utmost north and tries to stand between the Almighty Creator and this world. In the logo of the UN, surrounding the globe from the northern view, are two wheat sheaves each with thirteen blades. You can look this up in your encyclopedia. When you add the two 13's from the wheat sheaves and the 13 orbiting religious logos, you have 3 sets of 13, which is the occult sacred 39. (14) Just as NASA projects all leave from Launch Complex 39. In addition to that, we see this occult number of 39 on page 6 of the URI charter, a copy of which I now have in front of me. At the bottom of page six, we find that the United Religions' Initiative organization calls for 24 "world membership trustees", 12 "at-large trustees", and 3 "transition advisory trustees" for a total of 39 or three 13's. (15)
When the religious delegates gathered at the UN for the summit, 1500 spiritual leaders came from around the world. Included among them were men such as Jesse Jackson, Roman Catholic Cardinal Francis Arinze, and the Southern Baptist daughter of Dr. Billy Graham, Anne Graham Lotz, who shared the podium with many other infamous leaders. (16) Strangely enough, even the infamous Ted Turner was at this religious summit and was introduced by the Canadian billionaire Maurice Strong, who is also a high-ranking Illuminist. As Ted Turner bounded toward the podium, the crowd cheered him like a conquering hero. (17) Turner immediately denounced his own childhood Christian faith. The massive crowd began to laugh, whoop, and applaud when Turner said, "I turned away from Christianity when I discovered it was intolerant, because it taught we were the only ones going to heaven. That confused the devil out of me since that would have left heaven a very empty place." (18) Turner also called Christianity "a religion for losers" and requested that adultery be dropped as one of the ten commandments. (19)
The real groundwork for the United Religions' Initiative was laid at a meeting held at Grace Cathedral on February 2, 1997. February second is a witches' cross-quarter or high sabat known as "Imbolc", which is a Scotch-Gaelic word that means "in the womb." It is celebrated as the "first stirrings of the new spring in the womb of Mother Earth." The word "imbolc" means "stirrings."
The following is a list of 14 statements that came forth at the February 2, 1997, meeting of the URI at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, California. This information is taken from a transcript of a tape as transcribed by Lee Penn. Here are the 14 statements that reportedly came from that meeting: 1. All religions and spiritual movements have a shared moral code in most important respects. 2. The principal concern of religion (and of the faithful) should be the advancement of social justice, peace, human equality, and environmental preservation. 3. All living things are an expression of God and should be protected against harm - except for children in the mother's womb, who may be destroyed at will in the name of "reproductive rights," "choice," or "family planning." Those who object to abortion should not disrupt unity by trying to ban the practice. 4. All religions are paths to God; there are many roads up the same mountain. 5. "Spirituality" is a good thing in and of itself, and ought to be encouraged. (There are, after all, no "bad" spirits.) 6. Humankind can build and maintain a just and peaceful social order on earth, if there is proper education, enlightened leadership, and progressive consciousness. 7. The purpose of education is to create enlightened, socially aware youth who will be agents of change. 8. Traditional faiths should adapt their revelations, scriptures, disciplines, and doctrines to the discoveries of science and to the pressing concerns of humanity and the earth today. 9. Traditional faiths should recognize that "truth" is relative in the post-modern world. 10. Believing that one's own faith is true and that others are not (or reveal less truth than one's own) is a mark of intolerance and "fundamentalism." 11. "Fundamentalists" are willing to kill and oppress others in the name of their faith. Evangelism and the seeking of converts are "proselytism," an activity of "fundamentalists." 12. Preservation of the biosphere (along the lines set out by the environmental movement) is the most important human value, and is of greater importance than human life or human rights. 13. After preservation of the biosphere, the most important values for human society and human behavior are equality, peace, and tolerance. Tradition, law, individual freedom, and property rights must not interfere with achieving these goals. 14. Tolerance, however, has its limits. As URI Board Secretary Paul Chafee said, "We can't afford fundamentalists in a world this small." (20)
We, as true Christians, have much to pray about as the enemy is coming in like a flood. The sad fact, however, is that most people are absolutely unwilling to rise up against the evildoers. The true remnant Christians may be small in number, and the Illuminists may be trying to crowd us out of their planet, but our God is greater than all, and we must pray to Him fervently and believe Him absolutely. We will see miracles!
The Rise Of Witchcraft In The Witching Month!
There is an obvious rise in occult activity during the month of October, which crescendos upward as Halloween approaches. This year, October also has a Friday, the 13th with a full moon, which intensifies occult activity, as the many thousands who practice Wicca, Druidism, and other forms of the occult reach out for their "astral plane" experience. The 35 million Harry Potter books translated into 35 langauges will make things even worse. Incidentally, I have prepared a tape called "The Witchery Of Harry Potter", and it is available for immediate shipment. It contains only information directly from the Harry Potter books with scripture and comments. If you want to know what is in the books without reading them, and if you want proof as to why they are no good, this tape will do it for you!
Satan is obviously behind the Harry Potter insanity that has swept our nation and the world. Janet Rowling, the author of the Potter books, is now the highest paid woman in Britain. (21) Anyone who thinks that children are not getting involved in the occult because of these books need to exercise some common sense and look around them. Go to any shopping mall and see how many young people bear the marks of covens and occultism. Look for faces that are painted white with black lipstick, spiked hair, tattoos, and body piercing. The filth and blasphemy along with cocky remarks and defiant attitudes should tell you something is wrong. One of my correspondents from England recently sent me a clipping from the Sunday Telegraph with the following headline: "Harry Potter Conjures Wave Of Magic Circle Applications." (22) In another article from the Charlotte Observer, the headline says, "Harry Casts His Magic On Readers." The story under that headline begins by telling of a seven-year-old boy who put the lightning bolt tattoo on his forehead and went off to the bookstore wearing a purple wizard's hat to obtain the newest Harry Potter book. (23) The article also featured a picture of another boy dressed as the character "Bloody Baron" with his face and hair colored white and black circles around his eyes. (24) This is not harmless fun! These children are learning the principles of witchcraft and how to work spells. I have been getting a lot of heat from people regarding my stand against the Harry Potter books. The heat is mostly from witches, some of whom write pretending to be Christians. I received over one hundred e-mails from witches who are mad about what I am saying regarding Harry Potter. It looks like I threw a rock down a dark alley, and from the size of the scream, I must have hit something really big!
One thing that really outrages me is a cartoon which appeared in the Port Perry Star newspaper in Ontario, Canada. The cartoon shows what is supposed to be God as a bewhiskered man in a robe, sitting on a cloud with a smile on his face as he reads a Harry Potter book. Near him are two angels, and one of them has a newspaper in his hands with the front page headlines saying, "J.K. Rowling's Books Are Evil - Christian Fundamentalists." One angel asks the other one, "Do you want to tell Him or shall I?" (25)
There is much more that should be said about the Harry Potter books and the witchcraft that is sweeping the nation. I will stay on this subject in subsequent issues. I would also like to remind everyone that our very successful Harry Potter tract is available upon request. You may also request our new Halloween tract, which we will try to rush to you upon request. Please help us in this fight. We need your prayers.
Moral Depravity Will Bring Certain Judgement!
Hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, pestilence, drought, and famine are all happening in our nation and in much of the world. Record heat waves have taken their toll, and we are only seeing the beginning of what sin will bring to this nation. We live in a nation that murders precious little babies by the millions. These murders are government sanctioned occult sacrifices. Now we have learned that the Clinton Administration has given the okay to government-funded researchers to use human embryos for stem cell research. Thus, human life is being used for research, and they don't even hide it anymore. President Clinton's comment was, "The potential to change the future is breathtaking." (26)
Satan's filth is coming in like a flood, and it is because so-called Christians are not rising up against it. The Olympics have now begun in Sydney, Australia, and when the games close, there is going to be a parade of 50 of Sydney's drag queens (homosexual men dressed like women) from the city's large queer population. (27) We know that the God that destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah is still on the throne! Incidentally, have you noticed that the large basin of fire that burns at the Olympics is now being called the "cauldron?"
In New York City, it has been announced by Schools Chancellor Harold Levy that the school system is actively recruiting gay and lesbian teachers. The Board of Education is participating in the "Gay Life Expo" September 9-10 at the Javits Center. (28)
In Los Angeles, California, two lesbians, Danielle Goldey and Meredith Kott, were passionately kissing each other in front of everyone and were expelled from section 53, field level at Dodger Stadium. However, such is the power of the queer organizations in this country, and so great is the infiltration of queers in high places that they always seem to come out ahead. Dodgers officials recently apologized to the two lesbians in a news conference in West Hollywood and included an apology to all other gay and lesbian couples. The Dodgers also announced that they would give 5,000 free tickets to gay and lesbian organizations and said that all stadium security personnel would undergo sensitivity training. (29)
In closing, I think we can understand from the contents of this newsletter, and from the things that we are seeing around us all the time, that we are at the end of the age. Our Lord is about to return. I urge everyone to pray fervently and actively oppose the powers of darkness! Stand up for the Lord, and He will stand up for you. I want to thank all of you who support this ministry. We stand ready always to pray for you and help in any way possible. Thank you for your faithfulness. Grace and Peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
