The Great Fall of American Babylon
“And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.”
“A sound of battle is in the land, and of great destruction. How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! How is Babylon become a desolation among the nations! I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the Lord. The Lord hath opened his armoury, and hath brought forth the weapons of his indignation: for this is the work of the Lord God of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans. Come against her from the utmost border, open her storehouses: cast her up as heaps, and destroy her utterly: let nothing of her be left…….Therefore shall her young men fall in the streets, and all her men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the Lord. Behold, I am against thee, O thou most proud, saith the Lord God of hosts: for thy day is come, the time that I will visit thee. And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him.”
Jeremiah 50:22-26, 30-32Signs of the Rising Beast!
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will examine both the signs of the times that are unfolding continually before our very eyes, and what the Scripture has to say about these last days of time. It is a sad fact that so many people are oblivious to the obvious and walk in spiritual blindness. It is even more tragic that they prefer to have it that way. As we read Matthew, chapter 24, and Luke, chapter 21, we find that the Bible is far more up to date than tomorrow’s newspaper. Everything written in the Word of God will come to pass.
We are now watching our erstwhile great nation being completely dismantled by the new age masterminds of the Great Illuminati Conspiracy. As the economy, morality, spirituality, and all other dynamics of our nation crumble to ashes, the Illuminists promise that a new age of Aquarius will rise from those ashes as the magical phoenix bird rises in the miraculous flames in a new age of reason. This is Satan’s great lie, but it is believed and embraced by the majority of this deceived generation, especially by the heads of government and religion. As we watch this nation coming apart at the seams, we also see a United States of Europe rising to great power and the northern army of NATO beginning to expand in power. Much of Europe is now united economically with a single currency called the Euro. The American dollar has been falling in value dramatically against the Euro currency. Great changes are taking place, and there is a great new power emerging just as the Bible said it would. There has never been a greater need for prayer, and we know that the Almighty will use us and empower us to fight the powers of darkness spiritually if we will trust Him and rely on Him completely. The United States of America is a nation that is saturated with sins of abortion, lust, drunkenness, pornography, violence and idolatry of every kind. It is also a nation under the spells of witchcraft. As bad as all of that is, we continually hear people saying, “God bless America”, while America remains apathetic and indifferent toward truth and the laws of Almighty God. Perhaps this issue of the Last Trumpet will help some people to wake up and repent. I pray to God that it does before it is too late.
We have been watching and praying especially in recent months, as the beast system of antichrist rises to dominate and control all of the people of the world. In the United States, we have watched our freedoms eroding as a new spiritual force has emerged in the form of various agencies designed to spy on its own citizens and to perpetuate a condition where everyone is suspect. The eye above the truncated pyramid on the back of the one dollar bill, known as the Egyptian Utchat or eye of Horus is the satanic eye that is back-lighted from behind by Luciferian light to watch you to make sure you go with the flow of the prevailing currents of the new world order. While the majority of the American people are busy trying to satisfy their lusts and are absorbed with the many forms of entertainment carefully planned for them, the totalitarian spirit of antichrist does his work. New laws are passed, and new departments are formed, complete with an array of executive orders, until one morning when the people wake up to find that they have lost their country. Remember the book Animal Farm by George Orwell?
We know that the Constitution of the United States strictly forbids a “Federal police.” We have state, county, and local police, but the Federal Government was to be restricted in this area. We are now beginning to see squad cars with the words “Federal Police” written on them in several places with large letters. I am looking at a picture of one right now, which was taken at Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania. The license plate reads G61 32966. (1) All Federal license plates have a “G” on them, just as everything pertaining to the secret society of Freemasonry uses their sacred “G.”
We have now received a report from the Associated Press that New Jersey public schools are beginning to test eye recognition devices. Four hundred school districts have been provided funding from the U.S. Justice Department for iris recognition technology for all of their workers. The Federal Government announced that it is building a database on school security using biometrics. The testing is beginning at New Egypt Elementary School. (2) The objective of the conspirators is to have a biometric database, which allows that all-seeing eye of the Illuminati to have a collection of digitized eye information of the people under its control. It is actually a computerized satanic eye indexing people by the exclusive iris of their eyes.
Among the many signs that are appearing all around us, there was a most notable sign that manifested on May 31, 2003. In Luke 21:25 our Saviour warned us as follows: 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. The month of May, 2003, was one of several such signs. On May 1, 2003, President Bush dressed up as if he were a combat pilot and made a 39 minute trip from the 33rd parallel to the USS Abraham Lincoln where he declared that the war with Iraq was over. The President started the war with Iraq on the witches’ sabat of Ostara and ended it on the high cross-quarter witches’ sabat of Beltaine. On May 15, 2003, there was a penumbral eclipse of the moon. I watched this eclipse while in Dubuque, Iowa, and it was a rare sight. It was not a partial or total eclipse but a rare penumbral, leaving a blood-red shadow of the earth on the surface of the moon in only the darkest part of the umbra or shadow. On May 31, 2003, another rare sight was seen. This one was a sign in the sun, which is one of the signs that we are to look for. On that last day of May, the sun rose in a very peculiar way, and something happened that has never happened before according to the scientists. It was visible primarily from England, the so-called “holy land of the witches.” The sun rose in the east during an annular eclipse, and the appearance was exactly like two sharp horns of light rising out of the sea. The eclipse took place precisely at sunrise, and the horns, like a beast rising out of the sea were seen for exactly 1 minute and 13 seconds. (3) According to the Scarborough & District Astronomical Society in England, the sun was 90% occulted leaving only sharp horns of light at the rising of the sun. (4) It is amazing to me that these bright and beastly horns were aligned perfectly with Scarborough, because when I was in witchcraft before being saved by the blood of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, I and many other occultists were spiritually involved with the music and songs of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, who put many spells to music. One such was a canticle and love song to “Mother Earth” called Scarborough Fair. The words are entirely occult jargon and even contain the ingredients to an ancient love potion - parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme. When I look at the pictures of these two horns rising out of the sea, there is no question that this is a great sign that the beasts of Revelation 13 are unifying under one antichrist force. Revelation 13:1 tells of a beast rising out of the sea having seven heads and ten horns. It is a composite beast made up of all of the spiritual characteristics of the ancient empires. In the 11th verse of that chapter, another beast rises out of the earth and has two horns, but it directs all of its power to the first beast that rose out of the sea and causes people to worship that first beast. It appears that this united beast is now rising, and Babylon is being revealed to the discerning people who are the remnant of God.
As previously mentioned, the European Union is rapidly rising to world dominance, and its founder was a man named Jean Monnet. Mr. Monnet had this to say about the envisioned United States of Europe: “Europe’s nations should be guided towards a superstate without their people understanding what is happening. This can be accomplished by successive steps each disguised as having an economic purpose, but which will eventually and irreversibly lead to federation.” (5)
We have now received a report that former President Bill Clinton is planning to take his place as the Secretary General of the United Nations. This man, who was shamefully impeached, seems to have been healed of his deadly wound. I am not saying that Bill Clinton is the antichrist, but he will do until the real one comes along. It was the famous news commentator Paul Harvey, reporting on his daily news program from Chicago, who said, “Clinton wants to step up to the United Nations this September. Secretary-General Kofi Annan claimed he didn’t know anything about it, saying that his term does not expire until 2006.” (6) When Clinton left the Oval Office, he bought a house in New York and set up an office in Manhattan. I personally heard him say as he was exiting the Presidency, “I will have more power now than I ever had as President of the United States.” We are now in a time of wars and rumors of wars as foretold in Matthew, chapter 24. We know that during this time a man of peace is to stand up in a one-world dictatorship, which the Bible says will never be complete nor will it last. Daniel 2:44 makes that quite clear. The problem is that the U.N. sponsored ICC or International Criminal Court is expected to hold their first meeting in early July. This court consists of three levels of six judges each or 666, and they are planning to select a world President and two Vice Presidents. (7) This is the triumvirate or power of three that is to rule the world. You might call it an unholy trinity. It is depicted on the back of the American one-dollar bill as the triangle that encloses the satanic eye and is lighted from behind by Lucifer or Satan.
Another Sign of War In The Heavens!
It is a hostile time on our troubled planet as the world powers are shifting to full alignment with the powers of antichrist. Hostilities are still taking place daily in Afghanistan and Iraq, and now Defense Secretary Rumsfeld has put Iran on notice, and with a clenched fist, he has both warned and threatened that Islamic nation. (8) On June 1, 2003, the New York Daily News carried a headline stating “Iran is Next!” (9) The entire Middle East is a hotbed of hatred and violence that continues to fester with intensity. Now that the Iraqi war is supposedly over, many questions are being asked about why no weapons of mass destruction were found. I have personally heard President Bush stutter when asked that question, and when Reichsmarshall Rumsfeld was asked the question, he said Iraq must have destroyed them before we got there. On May 28th, however, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz made the following statement when he was asked that question during an interview with Vanity Fair magazine, and thus, he let the cat out of the bag. Paul Wolfowitz said, “For bureaucratic reasons we settled on one issue, weapons of mass destruction.” (10) Quite obviously it was a matter of political lying in Washington, D.C., and the words “for bureaucratic reasons” is just another way of saying that we lied!
These are days of bloodshed, bloodlust, and violence. On June 10, 2003, CBS radio reported on national news that our U.S. Government is preparing to hold tribunals for the 700 detainees at Guantanamo in Cuba. Most of these detainees are from Afghanistan. The shocking part of the news announcement, however, is that the tribunals are being held with an execution chamber adjacent to the court. (11) We must remember that Satan demands two things of his people, illicit sex and the shedding of blood! The true nature of the beast is being revealed, and these tribunals with adjacent execution chambers are being set up by the United States Government!
We must remember one very important point about the beast and his system of satanic governance. The point is that this system has a religion, and it is based on occult numerology and astrology. One of the primary functions of the Last Trumpet Newsletter is to call attention to the enemy’s usage of this false occultic religion and to expose them for what they are. I can do that authoritatively because I was once a part of that world. Sometimes people who are intellectually dishonest will write and demand that I stop showing those occult connections, accusing me of using occultism because I expose it. There is nothing I hate more than occultism, and I have never used it since the day I was delivered from it. I will continue to make those vital connections and will shout from the rooftops those things that are done in secret! Our satanically superstitious leaders live by the stars and to related numerology. It is Satan’s plan to make their system work. Thus, the world leaders direct their muscles and energies according to the stars and other forms of divination. That is why war continues to loom, and we are at the very entrance of World War III. With that thought in mind, we must note that the new age Illuminists believe that Mars is the god of war and is called the angry red planet. Astronomically speaking, the planet Mars usually is from 45 to 60 or more million miles from the earth. On August 27, 2003, it will be within 34.6 million miles from the earth, and for the first time in all of recorded history, it will be brighter than Venus, the so-called goddess of love. Mars will be bright in the South on the ecliptic line for about five weeks beginning on August 27th. Even with a small telescope the polar ice cap will be seen. In the occultists and witches’ religion, it means final war is looming as the god of war outshines the goddess of love. In other words, a final war of whatever duration will give way to a new age. That is their belief. It is interesting to note that of the 30 space probes sent to Mars, 19 exploded. The Almighty God is always in control!
Witchcraft by Popular Demand!
On June 21, 2003, which is the witches’ quarter sabat of midsummer, the new Harry Potter book is scheduled to be released. I cannot stress enough that we must pray fervently against this new book and all of the preceding Harry Potter books as well! These books open the door to real witchcraft and provide the training of principles needed at the neophyte level in witchcraft. It grieves me and saddens my heart to know that parents will take their little children to the bookstores at the midnight hour on June 20th to purchase the book Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I recently saw a large banner above the main entrance to the Barnes & Noble bookstore in Madison, Wisconsin, which advertised the “Harry Potter Midnight Magic Party.” Thus, the little children not only buy the book but gather at midnight on the eve of the witches’ sabat just as the covens do. How can ministers use this material in their Sunday schools? How can parents turn their precious children over to the devil as they do? We must also note the timing of this book with its title, and we can clearly see that it is preparing the children to accept the coming antichrist and the antichrist doctrine of the rising phoenix and the new world order.
On June 1, 2003, Parade Magazine published a story entitled “Harry Potter Takes Over the World.” The article reveals that one in four Americans own Harry Potter books. (13) These books are printed in 45 languages. The fifth and newest book is an 896 page children’s book, and it holds their interest because it is witchcraft, and they gravitate toward its power. This brings a far greater curse on our nation than the three million ouija boards that are sold in our country each year. Here let it be noted that a Wiccan group in Glasgow, Scotland, has admitted that the Harry Potter books have a very positive impact on their membership. This coven calls itself the “Children of Artemis.” (14) I urge every true Christian to pray, and by faith we will do exploits! Who will rise up?
Spirits of Blasphemy and Perversion Unleashed!
As previously mentioned, in Revelation 13:1 we are told of a beast that rises out of the sea having seven heads and ten horns, and on everyone of his heads is the name of blasphemy. I also previously reported that on May 1, 2003, the witches’ sabat of Beltaine, our U.S. House of Representatives opened its session by having a homosexual minister pray. I told my congregation about this and warned that a flood of filth, blasphemy, and perversion would immediately follow, and it most certainly has. Shortly after the occultists and illuminists celebrated their May 1st sabat, a movie was released in theaters everywhere entitled Bruce Almighty. The story is about a television reporter named Bruce, who is going nowhere in his career and blames God for it. The popular actor Morgan Freeman plays the part of God and gives Jim Carrey, who plays the part of Bruce, divine power and allows him to be God for awhile. The reviews say that the movie contains sex and nudity as well as violence and profanity. Bruce uses his powers to make women’s dresses fly upward and is a lecherous and lustful so-called god. (15) I have newspaper pictures from this movie in front of me, and I can say with certainty that the seven spirits of blasphemy as identified in Revelation 13 have risen up. In one picture, it shows Bruce with a commanding expression on his face as he holds up his right hand to reveal six fingers and a thumb. (16) In another newspaper picture, Morgan Freeman and Jim Carrey are both walking on water. (17) In yet another newspaper advertisement for this blasphemous film, Jim Carrey is pictured as Bruce Almighty with the world shaped like a yoyo and the string attached to his index finger. The caption underneath says, “In Bruce We Trust.” (18) Never have I seen such rank blasphemy on such a large scale. Who could stand to watch such filth as the Lord Jesus, who suffered and died for us, is mocked and blasphemed. When we consider the fact that the film grossed 86 million dollars the first weekend and set an all-time record for a non-sequel comedy, we can begin to understand where we are as a society. Truly our society is one with a voracious appetite for the unclean. It is a society that stands in defiance of Almighty God, and I believe that His patience is about to run out!
The immorality in this so-called “Christian” nation is not just a trend but an avalanche. The California assembly recently passed a bill, which mandates fines of up to 150,000 dollars against business owners, including Bible bookstores and non-profit organizations such as the Boy Scouts, for refusing to hire cross-dressing and transsexual job applicants. (19)
On May 28th, just before the sign of the blasphemous horns rising out of the sea, the Associated Press released a story about a professor at the United Church of Christ’s Chicago Seminary. Professor Theodore W. Jennings, Jr. wrote a book entitled “The Man Jesus Loved: Homoerotic Narratives From the New Testament.” The book by this so-called theological expert claims that Jesus not only approved of same-sex relationships but was involved in one himself. (20) Here let it be understood that the problem is not just the people who write such trash; the real problems are the people who sit by and condone or do nothing about such evil! We have become a society like unto Sodom and Gomorrah! That is why the Bravo cable network is producing a television series called “Boy Meets Boy”, which matches males with males and sends them on televised dates including kissing. It also features heterosexual men, who did not know their partner would be another man, but when they find out are willing to try it for the first time. (21)
On June 18, 2003, the Prime Minister of Canada, Jean Chretien, announced that Canada will be allowing same-sex marriages with all of the rights and privileges of normally married couples. (22) Just a few weeks earlier the Australian Parliament passed a law, which allows teachers to have “gay sex” with their students who are 17 and older. (23)
Here in America there was a recent meeting of White House aides with 200 “gay Republicans.” This meeting of Sodomites was to discuss “education, judicial nominees, and AIDS.” (24) According to the Associated Press, one of the GOP activists stated that he was “impressed by the acceptance shown by the President and First Lady toward homosexual couples. (25) We must remember that President George Bush hand-picked Dr. Joe O’Neill as his “AIDS Czar”, and Dr. O’Neill is openly gay. (26) Another openly gay delegate named Bobby Bottoms, who is from San Diego said, “I was struck by photographs in Dr. O’Neill’s office taken during the Christmas party of Dr. O’Neill and his partner with the President and Laura Bush.” (27) This is the President who wants to be thought of as the great liberator of Iraq. I have a copy of the Charleston, West Virginia, Gazette in front of me with the headlines “Iraqis Now Free To Sin.” The article tells of the now-liberated Iraqis flocking to movies theaters and watching naked couples on the screen. It also tells of pornography, alcohol, and prostitutes being sold on the street. None of this was ever seen on the streets of Baghdad before it began to be Americanized! (28)
Very soon we will see judgement begin to fall as never before. This nation and the world is sick unto death, and the earth’s terminal illness is the result of the fullness of sin and blasphemy. In Galatians 6:7-8 we read, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”
Warnings From Almighty God!
The news reports of what are called “natural disasters”, as well as pestilence and plagues, continue to come forth like Kleenex out of a box. The SARS epidemic is far from over, and people in some of the largest population areas in the world are terrified of this deadly respiratory illness and the tenacious virus that causes it. This virus seems to have come from nowhere and spreads rapidly, because it can live on doorknobs or other surfaces for days. (29) In Toronto, Canada, Health Minister Tony Clement had this to say; “I don’t know how people will like this, but we can chain them to a bed if that’s what it takes.” (30) To make matters worse, doctors in Chicago have discovered another virus very similar to the SARS virus. It is called “human metapneumovirus” , and it is one of many that are beginning to manifest around the globe. (31)
The World Health Organization is now saying that they may have traced the SARS virus to civet cats, and that people in China are getting the virus because they eat these cats as a delicacy. (32) In Beijing, Red China, officials are saying that three major hospitals have been sealed off, and people everywhere are wearing masks and living in extreme fear. (33) The Red Chinese government claims that travel and tourism into China has virtually ceased, and that the zoo animals cannot be fed because of a lack of funds. The zoo animals are attacking and eating each other because they are starving. (34) It makes one think of Revelation 6:8 which says, “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.” The SARS virus displays erratic behavior, and many people who seem to have recovered and are released from hospitals are found to be still infectious and go into relapse themselves. (35) On May 4, 2003, the Knight Ridder news service featured a headline which said; “SARS Just Part of New Age of nasty diseases.” The news story went on to say that health officials have listed 13 factors in the diseases’ surge. (36) As it is with all of the signs of the signs of the times, the numbers 13 or 18 or 33 and other numbers used in occultism keep coming up.
The SARS epidemic does indeed threaten the world and could break out anywhere. As of May 30, 2003, the city of Toronto in Canada had more than 7,000 people in isolation. (37) Now the disease of monkeypox is being found in several states in America, including Wisconsin, and cases are expected to rise. (38) There has never been a time such as this!
Many other kinds of pestilences, such as the invasion of grasshoppers that are swarming the Western United States are also upon the sin-filled United States of America. The 2 ½ inch long creeping insects are stripping crops in Nevada, Utah, and Idaho and have infested 5 million acres in Nevada alone. (39)
Earthquakes in various places continue to happen with increasing frequency as if the earth is going into travail like a woman with child. On April 30, 2003, which is the eve of the Beltaine witches’s sabat, an earthquake shook seven states in the south. It was a 4.9 quake, which shook Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Mississippi. The earth shook for a full minute. (40) On May first, a magnitude 6.4 quake struck in Celtiksuyu, Turkey, collapsing a bridge and over 25 buildings, and there were over one thousand people either injured or killed. (41) Then, on May 22nd, 2003, a powerful 6.7 magnitude earthquake hit in Algeria near the capital. There were over 700 killed and thousands were injured. (42)
On May 27, 2003, another powerful quake of 7.0 magnitude rocked northern Japan. Power was knocked out, fires started, and skyscrapers swayed in Tokyo over 260 miles away. (43) It is quite obvious that something is happening to our sinful planet, and only God knows how much time we have left until all of these earthquakes in divers places align the foundations of the earth for the last great quake. In Revelation 16:18-21 we read, “And there were voices and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.”
In closing, we must all ask ourselves, where will I be when the last trumpet of God sounds? How will it be with my soul? May God help us all to yield ourselves to Him and trust to Him and the saving blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thanks to all of you who support this end-time ministry. Please accept my deepest gratitude. Please remember that we are here to pray for your needs and have teams of faithful intercessors that will give your requests individual attention at the throne of God’s grace. Grace and peace be multiplied unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus.
