"Hear ye, and give ear; be not proud: for the Lord hath spoken. Give glory to the Lord your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness. But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride; and mine eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because the Lord's flock is carried away captive."
"Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward and perished in the gainsaying of Co'-re. 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 for ever."
"And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand."
In this issue of the Last Trumpet, we will once again consider the lateness of the hour as we examine the signs of the times in the true light of the Word of the Almighty. We know that the human population of this troubled world is continually turning its back on the truth and the one who reveals the truth, even our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. It is now as it was in the days of Noah and in the days of Lot. The so-called Christian religions have become infiltrated and infested with evil spirits and have made stooges of religious human beings who disregard the clear truth of the Scripture and run after sensationalism and spiritual mass hysteria. The Illuminati has now achieved its fourth objective to "destroy religion in America", which was set in motion long ago and was launched from Union Theological Seminary in New York City many years ago. Churches are full of compromise, false doctrine, Satan's music, worldly entertainment, and idolatry. The principles of Eastern religion have been blended with so-called Christianity, including the Hindu dharma, yoga, and a massive display of false spiritual gifts. Furthermore, people are so caught up in religious entertainment that they have forgotten to pray for discernment and are thus floundering in a sea of error. These are indeed the last days. Ministers have become purveyors of Satan's devices, and the words of Jeremiah 12:10-11 stand out as follows: "Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness. They have made it desolate, and being desolate it mourneth unto me; the whole land is made desolate, because no man layeth it to heart."
As we consider all of the above, we must also remember that the Almighty does have a remnant people, who have not forgotten the meaning of the word "repent." There is still a praying and discerning people, who have come out of the religious system of Babylon and have fled from idolatry. As we behold the dark and shadowy light of illuminism descend upon the world, we know that we are in for a battle, which we cannot lose, and we know that the Almighty God has brought us to this hour for a purpose. The dark light that the witches call the "Age of Aquarius" is now being foisted upon the world, and the governments are becoming one in the Luciferian beast system of governance. This is a sign to the remnant, who can still see and hear, and we know that this new dark age is a sign that our Saviour is soon to come. I, who was once very much a part of that realm of the dark light of illuministic witchcraft, can hardly believe that the Lord would allow things to continue as they are for this length of time. If you have not yet repented and given your heart, soul, and mind to the Lord, you should be glad that he has waited and that there is still a little time.
The Fall Of The American Empire!
History tells us that when the mighty empire of ancient Rome began to crack and fall apart that the citizens of that empire refused to believe it could happen. The military and economic power of Rome was supreme, and all the known world was controlled by Rome and paid tribute to that mighty city. That empire of renoun was brought to a great fall, however, by drunkenness, immorality, gluttony, and apathy. The people of Rome became pleasure-seeking sports fanatics and were soon consumed upon their lusts as barbaric tribes crushed them and took over their land. Ironically, we see the same thing happening in the United States, including the disbelief that it could happen here. The Masterminds of the great Illuminati Conspiracy knew what they were doing when they referred to Washington, D.C., as "Romulus", while laying out the street plans according to masonic design. The nation of the United States would rise to greatness and would fall hard. In fact, the United States became so great and powerful that it has taken the Illuminati much longer than anticipated to reduce this nation down to the point where it would be forced to be only an integral unit of a much larger one-world empire with a one-world dictator inhabited by Satan himself. Forces have been at work in Washington and New York for a long time to make happen what we are now seeing. Conspiracy and corruption is everywhere. The fact that a man like Bill Clinton could be President in this country for eight long years is a sure indicator of how far gone this nation is.
With war and distress of nations looming larger on the horizon, President Bush announced that he is going to seek more military base closings. (1) According to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, since the "cold war" has ended, we no longer need the bases. (2) This was done at the same time that Secretary of State Colin Powell visited Red China, an avowed enemy, and referred to the Red Chinese as friends, while on his recent visit to that land. (3) China is doubtless waiting for just the right opportunity to start trouble.
In the Middle East, the earthly Jerusalem is indeed a "burdensome stone", and the Bush Administration knows that there is great trouble ahead. On July 28, it was reported that radical Jews were ready to lay the cornerstone for the third temple in Jerusalem. (4) The Jewish government, however, was afraid of Moslem repercussions to the extent that they granted permission only to lay the cornerstone at the "Dung Gate" at the southern entrance to the Jewish quarter of the old walled city. (5) Meanwhile, the Palestinians have formed 13 resistance groups to prevent any temple construction. (6)
On August 13, the Russian defense officials announced that there would be war in the Middle East within six months. (7) The Russians have stated that Egypt is ready to move its third army into Sinai and that war is inevitable. (8) Here in the United States, lawmakers recently held a meeting at Andrews Air Force Base and held a computer based exercise, code-named "Dark Winter." The results of the meeting indicated that "a biological terrorist attack on U.S. soil could bring the country to the brink of disintegration." (9) It was also indicated at the meeting that marshal law would become necessary, and that in two months, terrorist induced epidemics would disintegrate our nation. (10)
While all of this trouble is brewing, we are also amazed at what appears to be gross ineptness in the United States government and a general display of weakness! It was recently reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation lost or misplaced 450 weapons and 180 computers, some with classified information on them! (11) To top it off, the U.S. Government admitted on August 12 that they lost a hydrogen bomb off the coast of Georgia. This story was reported by an Australian newspaper but did not seem to make the news over here. The fact is that a 3450kg hydrogen bomb, 100 times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, has been lying off the coast of Georgia since February 5, 1958, when it was jettisoned from a B-47 Stratojet bomber that was struck by a fighter jet during a training exercise at 36,000 feet. The Pentagon claims that it does not know the exact location and insists that it is safe. They also said that they will refuse to try to recover it, because it is too dangerous to be touched. (12) The 3.5m nuclear bomb, completely armed and with trigger mechanism, is somewhere near Tybee Island, close to the mouth of the Savannah River. It has the explosive power of three million, five hundred thousand tons of trinitrotoluene or TNT. I cannot help but wonder what an earthquake in that area would do to this armed nuclear device. Georgians are demanding action, but the government has declared the bomb to be "irretrievably lost" and stated that it would take five years and cost 23 million dollars to recover it. The governmental statements are full of double-talk. (13)
The Rising Imperial Beast!
As President George Bush prepared for the G-8 summit recently held in Genoa, Italy, he made his feelings clear when he announced, "I am not an isolationist." (14) When I read these words, it reminded me of the time I stood outside the Council on Foreign Relations headquarters in New York City and talked with a couple of CFR secretaries. I had been kicked out of that building and was told that the CFR organization was so private that not even the press was allowed inside its doors. When I asked one of the secretaries, who was sent out to spy on us while we prayed, "What is the agenda of the
CFR?", she answered, "To make sure that the United States is not isolationist." The reports tell us that the heart of Genoa became a virtual ghost town open only to G-8 delegations. Violent protests erupted throughout the area, because there are some people who know what is going on to a certain extent and see the horrors of it. When we look at the summit, which has been called G-7 for years and is recently being called G-8 because of Russia's involvement, we find an amazing prophetic parallel in Revelation 17:10-11 as follows: "And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition." We know that this prophecy specifically refers to the Roman Empire, but the parallel of the 7th and 8th kings to the last days is remarkable. The beast is rising quickly to world dominance.
We are also seeing another amazing phenomenon in the United States. Russian immigrants are flooding into New York and occupying the waterfront areas. (15) Mexican and Hispanic people, by order of President Bush have also been granted special status, and the fence bordering Mexico and California has been knocked down. On Saturday, August 11, ABC radio at 5:00 AM played the sound of the feet of thousands of otherwise illegal Mexicans tramping over the chain-link fences, and it is estimated that three million of them will be allowed to live and work in the United States, by-passing all the immigration laws. Without question, President George Bush is a traitor as he works with world leaders to reduce the United States to the size of its pre-determined position in the New World Order.
So much is now happening that it is difficult to keep up with it. I was recently told by an international teller that as of January 1, 2002, the Euro currency will be in full circulation, and on July 1, 2002, all currencies of all European nations will be cancelled and become worthless. We are now seeing the struggles on Wall Street and the economy of the United States struggling as it will have to compete with the Euro currency and will doubtless be devalued soon. There will soon be a one-world currency, and electronics will completely take over.
We see our economy crumbling as the U.S. is downsized to fit its allotted position in the big scheme of things, and major companies are eliminating jobs and closing facilities. Lucent Technologies eliminated 13,000 jobs and now has announced the elimination of 20,000 more for a total of 33,000. (16) We are watching those occult numbers, and I also think it is interesting that the Federal Reserve Bank of New York is located at 33 Liberty Street. (17) Ford Motor Company has also announced 5,000 white-collar job cuts and future plant closings. (18) The sad fact is that July, 2001, saw 205,975 jobs eliminated (19), and the total of jobs eliminated so far this year is 777,000. (20) On August 15, the International Monetary Fund or IMF issued a warning that said, "America's ballooning current account deficit has put the currency at serious risk." (21) Immediately after the warning, the U.S. currency was sent tumbling to its lowest level in four months losing against the euro, the yen and the pound. (22)
I think it is rather interesting to note that the dollar sign ($) is a symbol that dates back to the Middle Ages, and the "S" with the bar through it means "under the scourge or bondage of Satan." Just as the word "mortgage", coming from the same root as mortician and mortuary, means "death contract", and when people sign next to the dollar sign, it becomes by definition, a death contact under the bondage of Satan. Of course, the British "pound" symbol is an "L" with a horizontal bar across it meaning under the bondage of Lucifer.
Signs Of A People Already Bewitched!
One certain sign of the last days is the voracious appetite for witchcraft in our nation and throughout the world. The Bible has much to say about witchcraft, and it is no joke. Neither is any of it harmless fun. Recently I was walking in a shopping mall in Madison, Wisconsin, and I saw a little girl walking with a magic wand with a pentacle on the end of it. I heard her say to her mother, "I'm a good witch", and her mother replied, "Yes, you are a good little witch." Witchcraft has filled the vocabulary of people that live in what is supposed to be a "Christian" nation. There is much more witchcraft to come unless every Christian wakes up and takes action. The Harry Potter books have cursed our nation, as children fill their heads with occult terminology by absorbing themselves in the four books of the series entitled, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The doctrine taught in these books inform children on how to pray to spirits, how to use telepathy, how to transmutate the soul, and how to progress through witchcraft to its highest levels. I can recognize this at a glance, because I was once involved in that forbidden realm and was saved out of it by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. I predicted two years ago that the Harry Potter books would sweep our nation and world, and that widespread publication of these books was an Illuminati project. Now, the first Harry Potter movie is scheduled to be released on the 16th day of the 11th month of this year. We know that the number 11 has come into prominence lately, because in the occult, the number 11 is the number of the sign "Aquarius" and answers to the witches' 1,000 year age of peace and harmony of the astral plane with "Mother Earth" or Gaia. The witches have also carefully arranged to have the movie released on the 16th day of that month, because that day is positioned midway between two full moons. It is a somewhat rare occurrence, but November has two full moons this year, and the first one is just after Halloween or Samhain. The second full moon in a given month is called a "blue moon" and is highly significant in the occult. The next sabat will be Yule or the winter solstice, when deceived professing Christians participate in the lie that it is the birthday of Jesus. This year, "Christmas" will be a Harry Potter event, just in time for the 3-day sabat celebration from December 22 through December 25, complete with a Roman Catholic midnight mass on the 24th. It is all abomination and idolatry of the first magnitude.
I have heard from people throughout the United States and elsewhere in the world regarding their pastors, who encourage their young people to read Harry Potter books. Churches of every type, ranging from fundamentalist to traditional denominations, have become involved in the promotion of this witchcraft. I have in front of me an article from the Whitby Gazette in England, which tells of a confirmation service for children aged 9-11. The Bishop of Whitby, who calls himself Rt. Rev. Robert Ladds, anointed the children and then preached a sermon on Harry Potter, which was followed by their first communion! (23) We have now learned that the British Government is offering government grants to learn how to cast spells and perform sorcery! Teenagers can now take home study courses in the ancient art of Wicca run by the British School of Yoga, which qualify for the Government's individual learning accounts. The Sunday Mail newspaper reported that the subject list for the courses offered reads like the syllabus at Hogwarts School in the Harry Potter books and includes courses in "Spell Casting, Divination, Spirits, Gods and Goddesses, The Book of Shadows and Moon Magic." Successful students are awarded a Diploma in Wicca Witchcraft of the New Age Foundation. (24)
It is vitally important that true Christians continue to pray. We are seeing results! We know that the movie theaters are going to fill up beginning November 16th when the Harry Potter movie is released. We know that busloads of young people will sit in the big theaters with the large screens and rap-around sound and will have their heads, hearts, and souls filled with this occult poison. We must fight back, and by the Lord God, we will see results! I was delighted to hear that the Scotsman Newspaper in the United Kingdom reported that there is another delay in the publication of the fifth Harry Potter book. It seems that Janet Rowling is struggling with "writer's block", and I know how she got it and where she got it from. (25) Keep praying!
In another amazing report, the Knight Ridder News Service published a story entitled, "Spirited Competition." In the story, we are told of a new Catholic board game called "Communion of Saints." It is a dice game where you bet your soul on the roll of a single die, and if you lose, you find yourself burning in hell. (26) If we look at the spiritual condition of people everywhere, we are made to wonder if there are enough people in their right minds to run this world in the next generation, and we also can see that beyond a shadow of a doubt, these are the final days before the return of our Lord!
Unmistakable Signs Of The End!
By now, everyone should be standing up and taking notice of the signs of the times, but very few are watching. Certainly, every true Christian should be praying more and also be greatly moved by what is happening around us continually, but many of them are half asleep. What will it take to cause people to come fully awake and realize that the warnings, signs, and admonitions found in the Bible are real and are really happening? In Matthew 24:6-8 we are warned, "And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows." In Luke 21:25-27, we are further warned, "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory."
It was exactly 13 days after I returned from New York City, where I saw the vision of Manhattan burning, when I turned on the radio at 5:00 A.M. CDT and heard the words, "They came from outer space, fireballs in the sky over New York, Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania." I was stunned and shocked when I heard these words, because I instantly knew that it was a sign from the Lord. Reuters News Service later reported that the U.S. Naval Observatory denied that it was a meteor shower and called the fireballs "bolides" and said they were natural phenomena. (27) Evening rush hour motorists pulled off the roads, and various agencies were flooded with phone calls. Pilots in flight issued reports of a strange, large fireball hurtling through the sky. A Reuters' reporter saw a tapered object, shaped like the bell of a trumpet, falling diagonally through the western sky near West Chester, Pennsylvania, twenty miles from Philadelphia. The reporter said that the object emitted a lustrous rainbow of colors, ranging from bright yellow on its downward-pointing flared end, to light green, and finally rust-colored red at the upward-pointing tapered end. (28) This flaming, trumpet-shaped and rainbow-colored object is a direct sign from the Lord that something major is about to happen! The trumpet shape should be a sign to every Christian. In Matthew 24:31, we are admonished, "And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."
Many other strange and irregular things have been going on. In Saudi Arabia, where summer temperatures reach 122 degrees, there was a surprise snowstorm, so great that it marooned thousands of people. (29) Rodents are testing positive for the bubonic plague (30), a disease that was supposed to be eradicated, and that wiped out large populations in past history. We have also learned that the World Bank and multinational companies are seeking to privatize water. These companies state that global water consumption is doubling every 20 years, and that by the 2025, the demand for fresh water is expected to rise to 56 percent more than the amount of water currently available. (29)
A killer heat wave hit the United States, and temperatures soared into the 100's Fahrenheit. Drought conditions exist across our land, and crops have been severely damaged. (30) Wildfires are now raging across the western part of the United States. Over one-half million acres in seven states are now burning out of control. Dry lightning keeps coming from the sky and starts new fires faster than they can be put out. (31)
On the East Coast in the State of Florida, many hundreds of sharks have been gathering off the western coasts. No one seems to know why such large numbers of all kinds of sharks are gathering so close to shore. Bull sharks, hammerheads, nurse sharks, and others are plaguing the beaches, and there have been numerous attacks on humans, who have been bitten, some very seriously. (32) There seems to be some great upheaval in the creation, and many evil spirits are at work.
In Japan, Kansai International Airport, which covers 1300 acres of land and is the pride and joy of that nation, is sinking into the ocean. The airport facility includes the terminal, runway, train station, shopping mall, and a hotel. Because of seismic activity, the entire facility has subsided 38 feet and is sinking into the sea. (33)
On July 28, 2001, a strong earthquake rattled Alaska and jolted residents for hundreds of miles. The quake measured 6.4 on the Richter scale and was centered about 70 miles east of King Salmon and 245 miles southwest of Anchorage. (34) On that same day, July, 28, the Associated Press reported what they called "swarms of small earthquakes in Southern California." The Inyo County Sheriff's Department reported that there were hundreds of small quakes shaking the area almost continuously with a magnitude of 3.0. (35) On August 10, 2001, a larger quake of 5.5 on the Richter scale hit Northern California and was felt in Sacramento some 85 miles away. (36)
Why all of the earthquakes and freak happenings? Why the continual turmoil and strife in the Middle East? Why do we see our erstwhile great nation of the United States crumbling and deteriorating before our very eyes? Why are countless millions of innocent babies being killed in the name of choice? Everything in this issue of the Last Trumpet is pointing to the same thing. Our days are numbered, and we are moving at breakneck speed toward the great day of God Almighty.
In closing, I would like to remind every reader of this newsletter that you are welcome to send us your prayer requests. We have been receiving many from all over the world, and we are hearing the praise reports of prayers answered. Every request is given individual attention by myself and our dedicated team of intercessors. We continue to have prayer meetings every Saturday night beginning at 6:00 P.M. We also added Wednesday night as a time of prayer from 6:00 P.M. until service time at 7:00. Please pray with us and for us. I also want to thank all of you who send in articles and support this ministry. May the Almighty open the windows of heaven upon you for your faithfulness. Grace and Peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
