America – Land of Illuministic Rottenness!
“How is the faithful city become an harlot! It was full of judgement; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water: Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards…..”
“Therefore thus saith the Lord; Thy wife shall be an harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy land shall be divided by line; and thou shalt die in a polluted land: and Israel shall surely go into captivity forth of his land.”
“And every one who heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.”
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will once again examine the events of our day with prayerful discernment and the application of Scripture to the amazing happenings that continue to unfold everywhere around us. Never before has so much been happening so quickly, and this becomes increasingly obvious as we break through the veneer of deception and face the shocking realities of these last days. It is a sad fact that the vast majority of the people have bought the lies and deceits set before them by a cabal of satanic conspirators, who have carefully manufactured a zone of ambient comfort cushioned with apathy and indifference. We who are old enough to remember have watched a continual decline in morality and character in the United States since the 1960’s, and we have watched this crescendo of decay proceed to its current levels of depravity. Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, warned us that in the last of the last days there would be a spiritual coldness and lack of heart. We read of this warning in Matthew 24:12, which says, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”
We now live in a cold, automated, and machine-driven world, and it is the universal acceptance of sin and iniquity that has made it that way. When we call businesses and utility companies on the telephone, we get automated menu systems that take great lengths of time rather than speaking with real human beings. More and more products are defective, and exercising warranty rights can be nearly impossible. Dishonesty and unethical practices abound, even with major companies, and our government, known as “Uncle Sam”, is now known as “Uncle Scam.” We live in a cold, hard, litigious society of lawsuits and emotional hypersensitivity. We have thus become a nation of drugs, alcoholism, divorces, abortions, pornography, perversions, anger, road rage, and general rottenness of every kind. This is that “golden age” that they sang about back in the 1960’s. This is that time that the witches refer to as the “Age of Aquarius”, when a new world leader or avatar will arise to bring forth a new order and put mankind in its place. We must remember that those were the very words of one Adolph Hitler! This inner rottenness that has besieged our nation from its inner core and has now worked its way to the surface everywhere would leave us no hope if it were not for the fact that we as true Christians know the true end of the matter. Our hope remains firm in the fact that this is all temporary and short-lived, because the Spirit of the Almighty that dwells within us assures us that the continual increase of evil means that the timer is about to go off, and our Lord and Saviour will bring all things into judgement. With Satan’s help, man has destroyed the earth and people every day are dying in a polluted land. Our nation and this world are fully and completely rotten from within, and it all needs to be torn down and rebuilt by the only one who is truly able to do it, and He most assuredly will do it very soon.
Illuministic Distress of Nations!
We are warned in Luke, chapter twenty one, that in the last of the last days there would be a distress of nations. The word “distress” means a painful grieving. This is to be a general condition among the nations, and very soon this will come to pass in a greater measure than anyone has ever imagined. The people of this world, and especially the people of the United States, have had more than ample time to repent, seek the true God, and stand up for the truth, and they have not done it. Satan has been able to plan his work and work his plan, and that plan includes the unifying of all nations and causing them to serve him as god. With that in mind, we can understand that the current war in the Middle East, and especially in Iraq, is not simply a political intrigue but is truly a spiritual event. When the United States of America attacked Iraq on the witches’ sabat of Ostara and finalized that blitzkrieg on the witches’ high cross-quarter sabat of Beltaine or May 1st, America took possession of the ancient land of Babylon and now ostensibly owns Babylon. This makes President George Bush the de facto king of Babylon by standards of war and conquest. Here let it be noted that America has accepted and has been practicing the religion of Babylon for some time by embracing the astrology and witchcraft of that ancient land. Since the invasion and occupation of that land during the witches’ sabats, there has been a transfer of ancient spiritual power that will bring the United States into ultimate desolation. America now owns Babylon, and this event is spiritual! This is brought to light as we read the Word of God and examine the prophecies concerning Babylon and Mystery Babylon. Even the new Iraqi currency, which was printed in England, reveals the spiritual substance of this hostile takeover of the cradle of civilization. The new currency with its rich purple and green hues features a picture of King Hammurabi of ancient Babylon. (1) King Hammurabi has been dead for nearly 4,000 years, but he is noted in history as the one who first codified a set of laws that were to rule his one-world empire. These laws were ostensibly executive orders, which King Hammurabi said he received from the sun god, Shamash. (2) This ancient King Hammurabi used many forms of divination or witchcraft to bring forth his ancient form of the new world order, and now his picture appears on the currency of Iraq, which is geographically the same region as the ancient Babylonian empire.
Another Babylonian king named Nebuchadnezzar set out to attack Jerusalem from that same ancient land that is now called Iraq, and he used the ancient witchcraft of Hammurabi before launching the attack. In Ezekiel 21:21-22 we read as follows: “For the king of Babylon stood at the parting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination: he made his arrows bright, he consulted with images, he looked in the liver. At his right hand was the divination for Jerusalem, to appoint captains, to open the mouth in the slaughter, to lift up the voice with shouting, to appoint battering rams against the gates, to cast a mount, and to build a fort.”
The reason we are seeing the current and impending distress of nations is because the same devils and Satan himself, who operated and manipulated the ancient nations, are now following their same pattern as they manipulate modern nations. It is amazing to watch these evil spirits work from within the very beings of modern day world leaders. The faces, mannerisms, and modus operandi of our leaders today all declare this to be true if one knows what to look for. I have a picture in front of me of Secretary of State Colin Powell speaking at the United Nations, and it is nothing short of amazing. His face looks satanic, and even two of the many flagpoles positioned behind him look like horns coming out of his head. The amazing thing about this picture, however, is that he is doing a precise satanic salute with both of his hands. (3)
We have also seen President Bush use the el cernnuno or satanic salute many times. I feel a spiritual shock wave whenever I see this, because I was once a part of that world but have been saved out of it by the grace and mercy of Almighty God. I am also amazed at the thought of a President of the United States in a military uniform. Generalissimo Bush in military uniform gives the appearance of dictator status. Chairman Mao, Hitler, Castro, Sukarno, Stalin, and other oppressive leaders wore military uniforms, but Presidents of the United States are proscribed or forbidden to wear them. When I saw our President appear on the aircraft carrier in military uniform on the sabat of Beltaine or May 1st, I knew we were in trouble. Now, the Blue Box Toy Company is marketing a George W. Bush 12-inch action figure in full combat uniform (4), so children can get accustomed to a militant leader and head of state.
The Iraqi War was started on the premise that Iraq was possessing weapons of mass destruction. Such weapons existed only in the rhetoric of President Bush, who was used to work the plan of the masterminds of the Illuminati conspiracy. Now our soldiers are stuck in a desolate land, where since the war ended, they are attacked an average of 17 times each day. (5) Our soldiers are also complaining that they lack the basic essentials to do their job and must purchase some of their own equipment, such as essential goggles, which cost 2,000 dollars per pair. (6) Army General John Abizaid, chief of the U.S. Central Command, recently told Congress, “I can’t answer for the record why we started this war with protective vests that were in short supply.” (7) While our troops are shorted and denied many of the essentials that make the difference between life and death because we do not have the funds for them, our President continues to give billions of dollars to other countries, and our Congress voted itself a pay raise. Recently, ABC News reported that there is a high suicide rate among our soldiers, and many have called home threatening to go AWOL. (8) Soldiers are threatening to shoot themselves in the foot to get a medical leave, and one young soldier e-mailed his mother and said, “There is no morale here. The leadership just doesn’t care about us. They slave us. They grind us down, all for the sake of their officer evaluation reports. I don’t want anything to do with this mess anymore. You will see in the next few years a huge number of people leaving the Army, and this is why.” (9)
We know that the Illuminists plan to formulate a one-world army as a combined force in the last days. We must remember that President Bill Clinton greatly weakened our military and closed down many bases and training centers. Recently, Defense Secretary Rumsfeld announced that he intends to close down 100 of the remaining 425 bases. (10) Meanwhile, Red China has recently deployed troops on the North Korean border. (11) It is also interesting to note that Red China has now successfully launched a manned spacecraft and did so on the 13th day of the witching month of October. (12) As of today, the 18th day of October, Russia has a spacecraft on the way to the international space station. When one of our space shuttles was sabotaged last February on the witches’ sabat of Imbolc, it shut our space program down, and now launches are taking place in Russia and Red China. Think about it!
Meanwhile, in America, we are seeing the globalists conditioning the people for overt takeover. At various businesses, and especially utility stations and power plants, a strange new agency calling itself “Global Security” is sending its personnel to monitor operations. An anonymous reader informed me of this agency that has come to his place of employment and also told me that their I.D. cards show them to be from the United States and from Israel. The United States is no doubt being set up for major incidents in order to provide the excuses to take the new world order to its next level. We also know that President Bush recently announced that he is adding “Federal subpoena power” in order to aid in the fight against terrorism. This allows Federal investigators to bypass judges and grand juries. This is officially called an “administrative subpoena.” (13) Bush is also calling for the expansion of the Federal death penalty, and that anyone suspected of terrorism will be ineligible for release on bond. (14) We have also been informed that our U.S. military is conducting drills three times each week in preparation to shoot down our own passenger jets if they think it is necessary. The primary concern of the Northern Command and NORAD is that our Air Force pilots would not hesitate in shooting down a passenger plane full of American people. General Ralph Eberhart of the U.S. Air Force said, “U.S. Air Force pilots practice weekly and are psychologically ready to shoot down civilian airliners……” (15) We must understand that what the General means by “psychologically ready” is that these pilots have been brainwashed as in The Manchurian Candidate, a movie that shows how such brainwashing works. Think about those words, psychologically ready.
Signs of the Risen Beast!
I have personally visited the United Nations and have done much research there numerous times. When I consider all that the United Nations has done by occult power and then look at the weakening of the United States and the rising of the twenty-five nations of the United States of Europe, I can see the handwriting on the wall. God has numbered this nation of the United States and has finished it. These are the words that God used to tell Belshazzar, a king of ancient Babylon, that it was over. The reason it was over for Belshazzar so long ago is the same reason that our beloved United States of America is about to fall in our day. God said, “Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.” Daniel 5:27. Many people would refuse to believe that America is finished on the grounds that this simply cannot be. I urge you to look around, however, and see what this country has become. Satan has not only walked to and fro and up and down in this land but has also danced all over it. Old Glory has become Old Ichabod. (See I Samuel 4:21) As gross sinners and self-righteous human beasts wave the flag and say “God bless America”, we know He won’t, because there is no contrition nor sorrow for sin. There is no repentance but only a constant railing against the terrorists and a call for war.
Globalism is a reality because people refused to take it seriously and were busy with self-indulgences. Now the signs of enslavement through electronic information technology reveal that what the Bible said so long ago is imminent. Anyone who wants to buy or sell anything will be forced to go through the beast system of hell’s commerce and its banking system. The same technology that runs the money system also runs an elaborate spy system that keeps track of where you are and what sort of things you have in your home or car. Smart chips are now so small that you may be completely unaware that you are wearing them in your clothes or that they are hidden under the labels of merchandise. In a recent issue of U.S. News and World Report, an article on this subject was featured and it was entitled, “They Know Where You Are.” On page 32 of that magazine is a picture of the smallest American coin, the dime. The dime was magnified to reveal that dozens of computer chips easily fit into the cavity of the letter “D” of the word “Dime.” (16) You can only imagine how and where such small chips can be used as they relay information to satellites and many kinds of electronic reading devices. This is not science fiction but is happening now! The ultimate goal of the conspirators is to mark the very bodies of people, and this is also happening by means of a device called VeriChip. These chips are now being implanted in people during surgeries to store medical information. (17) These chips are being implanted just under the skin and an editorial in the Scientific American Magazine recently said, “The VeriChip is an unsurprising next step for a society that has become increasingly comfortable with cosmetic surgery, tattoos and body piercings.” (18) I believe it is true that when evil spirits move into a body they redecorate their human home with tattoos and piercings. Our new generation of lost young people are clearly marked, and what is one more mark? Why would they not take the ultimate mark of the beast? It is a quick and easy step to do so!
The number of the beast is showing up everywhere. Someone recently sent me a greeting card designed for newborn babies, which said, “A Gift for Baby” on the front with cute little lambs pictured. On the back was a large 666 in a black diamond. (19) It is also interesting to note that reportedly, according to Scott Paper Limited, the Pentagon uses an average of 666 roles of toilet paper every day. (20) We also see the sequence of three 6’s in advertisements of all kinds, and many times they are with sunbursts and sun symbols. This number of the beast is the very mark of Satan. The elect remnant of the Almighty must always be watching and praying, and as we do, we will see many signs of the times. One such sign happened on the very birthday of our country this year. On July 4th, 2003, the U.S. national or public debt clock at 01:07.23 AM GMT registered $6,666,907,112,922.98. (21) It also registered that each citizen’s share of the debt that day was $22,879.17. (22) When you add the numbers together according to occult numerology, you have 2+2+8+7+9+1+7=36. When you add all of the numbers from 1 through 36 together, you get a total of 666, which becomes the common square number of every man, woman, and child in America.
Very soon, everything is going to change in this country. The economic system in this country is collapsing by design, and when the economic system fails the government will fall and a new one will rise in its place. In all of history, no government has ever outlived the ultimate fall of its economy. Here let it be noted that on September 19th, 2003, the London Guardian reported the following: “The International Monetary Fund yesterday warned that the colossal United States trade deficit was a noose around the neck of the economy, emphasizing that the once mighty dollar could collapse at any moment.” (23)
A Wilderness of Immorality and Witchcraft!
Never has a nation that has claimed to be Christian sunk so low into the depths of depravity as the United States of America. I have seen shocking immorality in other countries rising such as New Zealand, which recently legalized prostitution for anyone 18 years and older, and the age for consensual sex was set at 16. Such moral depravity certainly brings forth the wrath of Almighty God, and our country is certainly no exception. Recently, a Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Common Council committee designated a strip club known as Club Paradise as a “center for the visual and performing arts.” This status was granted because they have hung classic art works on the wall. One classical painting was hung next to a neon sign that says “table dancing available.” (24) One dissenting alderman stated that the way the law was written, children as young as 15 would be able to enter that gentlemen’s strip club. (25)
Movies are getting more blasphemous than ever, including such films as Thirteen, which is rated R and features young 13 year-old girls with ritual tongue piercing. (26) Another such movie is called Purgatory House, which stars a 15 year-old girl, who plays the part of a lonely teenager who commits suicide and meets God, who turns out to be a cross-dressing drag queen played by Tom Hanks’s brother Jim. (27)
Another sign of the times is that the State of California has a new governor-elect, Arnold Schwarzenegger. His last name means “black plowman.” I have a picture of Schwarzenegger with Kurt Waldheim, who was a top Nazi, and another photo of Schwarzenegger with his wife, who is giving the satanic salute. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s father, Gustav, was a volunteer member of the Nazi Sturmabteilung or brownshirts. In an interview with U.S. News and World Report, Arnold Schwarzenegger said, “My relationship to power and authority is that I’m all for it. People need somebody to watch over them; ninety-five percent of the people in the world need to be told what to do and how to behave.” (28) This movie star, who is now the governor-elect of California, is known for his bloody R-rated movies, filled with every kind of violence, bloodshed, and decapitations. In some cases, even Hollywood had to restrain him by refusing his insistence for more intense violence. This man is an occult admixture of sex and violence, which are the two ways that one obtains power in the occult. No doubt one of the most revealing things that Arnold Schwarzenegger said were the first words out of his mouth when he received the news of his election victory; he said, “Now it’s up to the gods.” (29)
As I write this newsletter, I can see that this Halloween 2003 is going to be more spiritually intense than ever. The Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings books and movies have done more to promote witchcraft on a large scale than anything else ever has. It breaks my heart to see our nation so absorbed in the highest sabat in the old Celtic, Wiccan tradition. Halloween is strictly witchcraft and dates back to the time of the early Middle Ages when the Druids walked down the shadowy roads of England near Stonehenge and used hollowed-out pumpkins with faces cut in them and illuminated with candles made from human tallow. The jack-o-lanterns marked the place where people gave up a victim for human sacrifice. All hearths were extinguished that night as the victims were killed and burned in their “sacred” bonefire from whence comes the word “bonfire.” All hearths were relighted for the coming dark season, which turned again after Yule, and they were lighted with embers from the bonefire at the astral temple of Stonehenge. This is the essence of Halloween, and when I try to warn people of the spiritual dangers of these things, I find that two kinds of people give me the most trouble and threatenings: the witches and the so-called “Christians.”
The proliferation of witchcraft is so intense and widespread. Now there is a Halloween Barbie doll, who is dressed like a gypsy and comes complete with a crystal ball. (30) But perhaps I can best illustrate where we are at as a country by listing some bumper stickers that are being seen everywhere. Here are a few: “Born Again Pagan”; Blessed Beltane! May 1st Goddess Bless”; “I asked God, She’s Pro-Choice”; “Blessed Yule, December 21st; The day the Great Goddess gives birth to Her son/lover”; “Blessed Be, Solstice is the reason for the season, Goddess Bless”; “Sorry I missed church. I’ve been busy practicing Witchcraft”; “Guilt, Fear & Mass Insanity, 3 Cheers for Christianity”; “Be Still and Know that I Am Goddess.”
Desperate Groans of a Dying Creation!
America will soon be severely judged! Among our many other national sins, the blood-guilt of abortion alone would be more than enough reason. Our Federal Government has protected abortionists and has allowed them to murder 44,044,600 innocent babies from January, 22nd, 1973, to January 22nd, 2003, and the blood continues to flow. Enough babies have been aborted to equal the combined populations of Oregon, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Iowa, and Minnesota. Great Divine wrath will come because of this!
Even now, geologists are watching Yellowstone National Park, which is in the State of Wyoming and borders on Idaho and Montana. Geologists from the University of Utah and throughout the United States are watching what they call a “super volcano.” There is a mammoth volcano that is overdue to erupt, and it is 2,500 times as intense as Mt. St. Helens. (31) When this eruption takes place, it will spew lava and volcanic ash for a distance of up to 600 miles in every direction. In some areas of the park, the surface temperature of the ground is already 200 degrees Farhenheit, which at that altitude would boil water. We must remember that God rained fire and brimstone on Sodom for less than what this nation has done.
There has been another power outage. This time it was half of Italy that went dark, and even the Vatican lost its power. (32) This blackout happened on September 28th, 2003, just a few days after the powerful 8.1 earthquake rocked northern Japan injuring 243 people. (33) Not many earthquakes even make the news anymore because of the war and terrorism being continually pushed into our minds. In the past few weeks, there have been significant earthquakes in Portugal’s Azores islands, northeastern Iran, northern Sumatra, Taiwan, southern New Zealand, and Panama. There have been earth movements in the San Francisco Bay area, India, the Philippines, Crete, Spain, and Colombia. (34)
Certain areas of Europe are still trying to recover from the severe drought and the searing heat of this past summer, which broke all records and killed over 19,000 people. (35) In France alone, 11,435 people died from the heat. (36) In relation to all of that, the World Meteorlogical Organization recently issued a statement saying that the ozone hole is getting larger, deeper, and is lasting longer, which has a dramatic effect on weather. (37)
The Word of God declares that there will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars in the last of the last days, and every true Christian should rejoice when they come forth and are manifested. Recently, scientists and astronomers have been amazed by what they have been seeing. Our Milky Way Galaxy is said to be “cannibalizing Sagittarius.” The entire Sagittarian Galaxy is disappearing as if it is being eaten. (38) The whole thing is rolling together like a scroll. I am reminded of the words of Revelation 6:14 as follows: “And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.” In addition to that, scientists have also discovered that recently a new sound is being heard, and it is coming from far out into space. It is a perfect B-flat on the music scale, but it is 57 octaves below the piano range and sounds like a mammoth groaning. (39) Once again, I am reminded of the Word of God and what it says in Romans 8:22 as follows: “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.” It will not be long until the Almighty brings this present world to an end and brings forth a new world for His redeemed.
More Tragedy In New York City!
On Wednesday, October 15th, 2003, the Staten Island Ferry Andrew J. Barberi lost control and slammed into the pier at St. Georges Terminal on Staten Island. As the horrifying sound of tearing metal mixed with the screams of 1,500 people resonated in the afternoon air, the event shook the city once again. Ten people were killed and over 40 were injured, many of them severely, and some had arms and legs ripped off. (40) The already nervous people of New York are still suffering shock after shock. I was stunned when I realized that this boat, the very boat that I was on when I saw the vision of the towers burning, had now crashed. It left the 13-mile island of Manhattan exactly 13 days before our planned 13th trip to New York City. The boat was traveling at a speed of 18 miles per hour when it hit the pier. I believe it is a warning of something much bigger that is soon to happen. Please remember us in prayer as we plan to be somewhere in New York by the time you receive this newsletter. Please remember to send your prayer requests, and we will keep praying for you. I want to offer my sincerest thanks to all of you who support this end-time ministry. If you are waiting for a personal response to a letter, I want to thank you for your patience, as I receive about 100 letters per day. Grace and peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
