Illuminism Destroyed by Divine Revelation!

“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.”

I John 2:18

“For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.”

Luke 12:2-3

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition…….And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

II Thessalonians 2:3, 6-12

In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, which is the first issue of the new year, we will look at our dying world in the light of the Word of God, and we will see some amazing things regarding these last of the last days. This year of 2004 is our 23rd year of publishing this newsletter, and never have I seen such an acceleration of prophetic fulfillments in our current events. There are so many signs every day from Almighty God, and yet the people of the world are wandering continually deeper into the darkness of deception, apathy, and indifference. We are made to wonder what it will take to wake up those who spiritually slumber under the influence of the Illuminati conspiracy. We live in a land of madness that is filled with people who are entertained by violence, abstract sexual activities, rank blasphemy, and grotesque misbehavior. Conditions are exactly as the Scripture said they would be in II Timothy 3:13 which says, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”

The Scripture verses at the top of this page tell us clearly that we know it is the last time by the many antichrists that are at work. We are also told that the activities of these conspiratorial antichrists that are hatched in the chambers of darkness will be shouted from the housetops, and that is one of the primary purposes of this newsletter. In addition to that, we also see from the third segment of Scripture above that the antichrist is not discovered or figured out but rather is revealed! This is a vitally important point for us to understand. Truth is never discovered by sinful man; truth is only revealed from above! Thus, sinful man will never catch on nor understand what is truly happening. Sinful man will never regard the antichrist as evil. Truth comes to the heart of man only by revelation from above. The sequence is simple. If people hear the call of God and truly repent and obey the Gospel, they will rise to walk in newness of life and will fight the powers of darkness. If they fight the powers of darkness spiritually, they will be given a special gift from the very throne of God called discernment. This is the gift of spiritual sight to those who were spiritually blind. When this happens to people, they begin to see a world full of things that they had never seen before, even though those things were always there. Thus, the gift of discernment is given only to those people who will fight Satan! If churches and the people in them stop fighting the devil, they quickly lose the gift of discernment and find themselves thrust into the outer darkness of idolatry and continuous deception. What is truly sad is that they do not even realize it! If they do not receive a love of the truth, it is God who will send them the strong delusion, and they will believe the lies of the antichrist and will be caught up in a religious and patriotic frenzy that is not of God! We remember the story of one Samson, who was seduced by a woman to reveal the conditions that secured his supernatural strength. When he told this deceiving and false-hearted woman what she wanted to know, she enfeebled him, and he was unable to fight the enemy but soon became a blind and captive servant of that enemy. The saddest of words regarding Samson are found in Judges 16:20 as follows; “And he wist not that the Lord was departed from him.” This is the very condition of so many churches in these last days. Thankfully, there is always going to be at least a small remnant of the Lord Jesus Christ!
The Global Whirlwind of Illuminism

As I write this issue of the Last Trumpet, I continue to watch the current events of the world with amazement! As always, every time I am in the process of writing a newsletter, some big event takes place. The news broke yesterday, December 14, 2003, that the erstwhile leader of Iraq, Saddam Hussein was captured. I always listen to the earliest reports, because that is when most of the news is given, and some things leak through by means of excited reporters before they are edited out. The operation of capturing Saddam Hussein was called Operation Red Dawn. Strangely enough, I personally saw numerous Red Communist flags, complete with hammer and sickle, waving victoriously in the streets of Baghdad after Hussein’s capture. It appears that some people over in that country of Iraq have figured out what has really happened. To a great extent, a clandestine form of communism is at work in the United States. The words “Red” and “Communism” are considered to be dead and are not used in politics anymore. The planks of the Communist Manifesto, however, have been law in our country for some time, and as the saying goes, “A rose by any other name would smell the same.” The Antichrist is rising to reshape the world and people are not catching on. It was interesting to note that after the capture of the man they call Saddam Hussein, it was announced that the new order can begin. (1) It is also to be noted that when the capture took place, the initial reaction was that the man did not even look like Saddam Hussein. Was it really him or was it a double? God knows! Either way, the beat goes on. It was also stated that the captured man had about 700,000 dollars in American 100 dollar bills that were unmarked and unrecorded. ABC News said that this money was “inadvertently sent to Iraq.” (3)

The timing of the capture was no surprise to me as a former occult astrologer saved by the grace of God. The capture took place on the 13th day of December, the month of the dark solstice, which is the 6th sabat of the old Celtic-Druid calendar. The capture also took place between the full moon and the quarter sabat of Yule, which honors the sun-god or Baal. Any Wiccan astrologer would have advised that the capture take place on this day. I have watched our Federal Government operate according to astrology and witchcraft for years, and the operations and incidents are so numerous that they are far beyond the realm of coincidence. Much more could be said about this breaking event, and no doubt, much more will come out later. 

The war in Iraq continues on, and now President Bush has given the OK to use small nuclear weapons, which repeals a ban that has existed for the past ten years on such nuclear weapons. These weapons are called “small nukes”, but they deliver 5 kilotons of explosive force, which is equivalent to five thousand tons of Trinitrotoluene or TNT. (4) The residual radiation also poisons the already toxic earth even more. Once small nuclear weapons are used, the way is open for more and larger weapons. It is quite obvious who has the weapons of mass destruction. In the last great battle of World War III, the Bible gives an amazing description of how people will die, and it fits the description of a thermonuclear explosion of massive proportions. In Zechariah 14:12 we read as follows: “And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.”

The Bible also makes it clear that the last great battle is one that is fought when every nation on earth rises as one to try to fight against the Lord Jesus Christ and prevent his return. This is made clear in Revelation 19:19 which says, “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.” The one who is sitting on the horse is clearly identified in Revelation 19:11-16 as follows: “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed in a vesture dipped in blood; and his name is called the Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”

There is much confusion in the world in these last days, and the war in Iraq will no doubt detonate the powder keg of the entire Middle East. The United States is finding a great shortage of manpower to control its so-called conquests. The U.S. military has now been sending significant numbers of troops, who have tested positive for illegal drug use to Iraq. (5) U.S. troops in Iraq are also being plagued with severe skin lesions, which doctors say will take months and even years to heal and can be disfiguring. There are 148 confirmed cases and hundreds more are expected. It is being called the “Baghdad boil.” (6)

The war continues because it is a part of the plot to unify all nations under one satanic leadership and to bring forth a new-age and occult dictatorship that is so powerful, complete, and universal that none can oppose it. We must remember that on September 26th, 1961, Public Law 87-297 and H.R. 9118 was passed by the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives calling for “The disbanding of all national armed forces and the prohibition of their establishment in any form whatsoever, other than those required to preserve internal order and for contributions to a United Nations peace force.”

It is a fact that evil spirits have seized upon and have inhabited the high levels of the Federal Government, and this accounts for the confusion and insanity that is being manifested continually. Recently, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld made a speech to NATO in Brussels in an attempt to justify the pre-emptive strike against Iraq and to explain why the United States could not wait until weapons of mass destruction were found. Here is his exact statement, word for word, and this is not a misprint! Rumsfeld said, “The message is that there are no knowns. There are things that we know that we know. There are known unknowns, that is to say there are things we now know we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns – things we do not know we don’t know. So when we do the best we can and we pull all this information together, and we then say ‘well, that’s basically what we see as the situation’, that is really only the known knowns and the known unknowns. And each year we discover a few more of those unknown unknowns.” (7)

In late November, President Bush went to England where he was met by Prince Charles, and there he experienced massive protests. (8) President Bush was not well received in London, and it was reported by the London Guardian Newspaper that recent polls reveal that one in three Britons think George Bush is stupid. (9) The mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, said, “Bush is the greatest threat to life on Earth.” (10) In an amazing story that was completely ignored by the American news media, President Bush outraged the Queen of England and almost everyone at Buckingham Palace. Buckingham Palace is known for its beautiful gardens of rare and unique trees, shrubs, and roses dating back to the days of Queen Victoria’s reign. Some of the rare roses are named after the members of the royal family and could never be replaced. President Bush could not ride to Buckingham Palace in a limosine like other dignitaries, for after all, Bush is a world action figure. As the beautiful flamingoes were hurriedly moved to safety, and the gardeners stood horrified, President Bush arrived in his massive Marine Force One helicopter, escorted by two Blackhawk helicopters, and landed on the perfectly maintained lawns as the rotors trashed the entire area, badly damaging the once beautiful area. The Sunday Mirror went on to report that the furious queen looked on in horror as “Bush’s army of clod-hopping security service men trampled more precious and exotic plants.” (11) The President quite obviously made a statement about who he thinks is king of the world. Not only was this a display of outrageously bad manners and criminal damage to property but also a display of pride and arrogance beyond all limits. 

It is astounding that people regard George W. Bush as a Christian. The President and his propaganda machine have certainly been successful in hoodwinking many people. I will say that the records reveal that the President is unique in many ways. He is the first President in U.S. history to enter office with a criminal record. He managed to spend the entire U.S. surplus and to bankrupt the U.S. Treasury. Mr. Bush shattered the record for the highest annual deficit in U.S. history. He also set the records for the most personal bankruptcies filed in the United States in any 12-month period and for the most foreclosures in the United States for the same period. In Bush’s first year in office, two million people lost their jobs, and subsequently nearly two million more have lost theirs, also. The President set the record for the fewest number of press conferences since the advent of television and holds the all-time record for the most vacation time taken by a President in a single year. President Bush is also the first American President to order an unprovoked, pre-emptive attack and military occupation of a nation based on an assumption, and this operation is costing American tax payers over one billion dollars per week. All of the above information is a matter of public record and has been reported in the mainstream news media since the President took office. Perhaps people do not pay enough attention.

An Illuminized Nation On The Needle!

The people of the United States of America are now living during a reign of terror and have been since the towers fell on September 11, 2001. One of the most recent forms of terror is the killer influenza that is making people sick in all fifty of the United States. Many children are dying from this strange influenza, which in some cases gives them pain in the stomach and six to eight hours later they are dead. Most people would refuse to believe that Illuminati scientists would produce such a horrible biological agent. How could anyone be that cruel and unconscionable? The health authorities seem to know when the flu will strike, and they seem to know well in advance what kind of vaccine to produce. On December 11th, 2003, the Associated Press reported that the flu outbreak had hit hard in 24 states. (12) The very next day, it was reported that this flu had spread to all fifty states. (13) On the next day following, December 13, 2003, Dr. William Schaffner of Vanderbilt University, among other scientists, announced that the world will soon experience a pandemic outbreak of influenza. (14) The one that is coming is being compared to the pandemic that killed 20 million people from 1918-1919 world-wide. Dr. Greg Poland of the Mayo Clinic said, “It’s going to happen; for the American people in particular, I think it will be horrific.” (15) The fear campaign has worked as the American people have been rushing to use up the 83 million doses of vaccine that were produced last April, which is known as a trivalent vaccine consisting of the A/Beijing/262/95-like (H1N1), the A/Sydney/5/97-like (H3N20), also the B/Beijing/184/93-like hemagglutinin antigens. The truth is that vaccines are dangerous and are making people sick. Now that the injectable vaccine is used up, people are receiving the nasal spray, which contains live viruses, and people who receive this nasal spray are told that they can shed this virus to other people for up to 21 days and thus infect other people. (16) It is interesting to note that the nasal mist vaccine is being made available to people as they shop at Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest retailer. What a perfect time for the vile conspirators to dose the American people as they fill the stores during the pagan Christmas rush. The nasal mist is especially dangerous, as it contains live “N” proteins or neuraminidase and “H” proteins or hemagglutinin, which are responsible for the virus attaching itself to the host cells and invading them.

The injections of vaccine, which 83 million Americans received, contain other very dangerous substances, and it is shocking that so many people are buying into the lie that these injections are helping them. If you received a flu shot recently, this is what was injected into your body: ethylene glycol (antifreeze), phenol (carbolic acid), formaldehyde (cancer causing agent), aluminum (causes Alzheimer’s disease and seizures), and among others, thimerosal (mercury-based disinfectant). (17) As a chemist with forty years of experience, I can tell you that the mercury in thimerosol is a residual poison, and thus, it stays in the body and builds as do the compounds of arsenic, another transition metal. 

We have now learned that a panel of experts at the Center for Disease Control has voted unanimously to recommend that beginning in 2004, six million healthy babies, ages 6 months to 23 months, receive flu shots. (18) When I read this article, I could not help but think of Matthew 2:16 which says, “Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.” We know that Satan hates children, and that the Lord Jesus has a special love for them. We as true Christians are dealing with a dark and sinister conspiracy and must pray until we break through unto victory. The people of America are being terrorized and made to panic as they are blitzed with a media campaign to drive them into the hands of an untrustworthy government.

One more point that should be made about getting a vaccination is that the word itself adds up to 666, which is the number of antichrist. When the English alphabet is graduated progressively by sixes, we assign numerical equivalents to letters as follows: A=6, B=12, C=18, D=24 and so on. If we take the word vaccination and apply that code, we have the following results: V=132, A=6, C=18, C=18, I=54, N=84, A=6, T=120, I=54, O=90, and N=84. Thus, the numbers of the word vaccination add up to 666.

The Attack of Aquarian Witchcraft!

The signs of antichrist and witchcraft are everywhere. This is especially true in anything that involves our Federal Government. Recently, the Social Security Administration announced that Medicare premiums will rise in January, 2004, by $7.90 per month, which will set the premium at $66.60. (19) Notable people from sports stars to movie stars and recording artists are using all the terminology of witches, but this is especially true of politicians. It is interesting to note that shortly after George Bush became President, he asked the British ambassador in Washington for a bust of Sir Winston Churchill for the Oval Office. Churchill was a mystic and belonged to several occult organizations and was known to communicate with ghosts and spirits. President Bush apparently does also. Mr. Bush had these following words to say as he set up the bust of Churchill in the Oval Office: “I look forward to visiting with him. Sometimes he’ll talk back; sometimes he won’t, depending on the stress of the moment.” (20) Thus, our President consults with images just as the ancient King of Babylon, which is modern day Iraq, did. Once again we consider the words of Ezekiel 21:21 which says, “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.”

We are now receiving reports that every major university campus has recognized witch covens in them. (21) The Harry Potter books and movies, along with the Lord of the Rings materials, have done the work that I warned they would do years ago. It is real witchcraft even though leaders of witchcraft deny it and play it down in order to protect it. Our nation is thick with occultism, and it should be fairly obvious, especially to Christians. At the Frostburg State University in Maryland, Dr. George R. Plitnk is teaching a 3-credit honors seminar on Harry Potter at the Compton Science Center on campus. The course studies the links between magic and science. (22) This is a serious course, and the professor dresses in a hooded black robe and wears a pointed wizard’s hat. (23)

Many emissaries of witchcraft have been rising up to promote the new age of Aquarius. Only a few months ago, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel came back together (24) to solidify the element of the occult in the hearts of the adult population, who grew up in the sixties and seventies, of our country. The songs of Simon and Garfunkel always had a special importance to me when I was in the occult, because their songs are written in witchcraft jargon. That subject would be too lengthy for this newsletter, but I can say that their songs are inspired by Satan and they are apocalyptic. In the song “Sound of Silence”, we are told, “the vision that was planted in my brain still remains and echoes in the wells of silence.” This refers to people being controlled by mind-bondage spells, which are planted in the brains of the people for control purposes later. Any witch would understand that. People thus brainwashed would be reduced to willingness and cooperation while saying nothing. As the song says, they would talk without speaking, which is a kind of induced telepathy brought on by uniformity of brainwashing. In the song “Scarborough Fair”, they sing of a reaping with a sickle and of blazing with scarlet battalions, and of generals ordering their soldiers to kill and to fight for a cause they have long ago forgotten. We see all of this coming together in the world.

For the younger generation, there is a repulsive young woman named Britney Jean Spears, who was recently photographed in a passionate lip-lock with the singer Madonna. (25) Britney Spears, who has no talent at all, is immensely popular with an entire generation of young people and is manifesting the characteristics and doctrines of witchcraft. Spears is known for her near nakedness and perverseness, and the young people love it, and countless thousands are trying to look like her. She recently said, “Maybe Madonna was my husband in another life.” (26)
Last Trumpet Ministries under Attack!

We have been giving witchcraft a difficult fight for some time, and we have recently learned that they, organized witches, have resorted to an underhanded tactic of deception. Certain witches have set up a website on the internet offering study courses in witchcraft, spell casting, and a variety of information on the craft. They gave their website the name “Last Trumpet” What they are doing is probably illegal, but there are no ethics among witches. The witches hate me, because I expose them for what they are and reveal their secrets. They cannot argue with me, because I was once one of them. Here let it be known, and please help spread the word, that our website is Last Trumpet and not “.com.” We have a registered domain name, which is why we can use the suffix “.org.” The witches have been attacking me fiercely in recent months, and it is because we are making a powerful impact in their world. We have seen witches repent and leave the craft. One witch has been trying to kill me with spells, and she is now disabled and bedridden. It is all in the Lord’s hands.

Upheaval in a Cursed Earth

In a world where someone like Mick Jagger, the infamous rock star, receives knighthood at Buckingham Palace, (27) we can see the working of the powers of the satanic antichrist at work. Only in times such as these could a demonized man like Arnold Schwartzenegger become governor of California. Here let it be noted that when the fires were blazing in California at the end of October, the then governor-elect went to Washington, D.C., and visited President Bush. When “governator” Schwartzenegger returned, he was wearing a large silver ring with a skull and bones death head on it, as pictured on the front page of Newsweek magazine recently. (28) The ring is being worn on his right hand. In the occult, the left hand is “life force” and the right hand is “life progress.” An occult ring worn on the right hand indicates a spell or occult project is in progress!

As we see all of these things happening, we are also seeing signs of impending judgment. In California, the massive fires were devastating. Then there came the floods and mudslides on the scorched earth. (29) Then, a powerful lightning storm followed with five inches of hail. (30) In other areas such as Yellowstone National Park, areas near the bulging lake dome are closed to the public as seismic activity increases. Scientists are describing the area as “plumes of steam and gurgling belching cauldrons of hot water.” (31) Scientists are also saying that the entire area is like an expanding pie crust, and that the explosion will be as powerful as TNT. (32)

Reading the reports of what is happening to the earth is like reading Matthew, chapter 24. The earthquakes are increasing in intensity and frequency all over the world. On December 1st, 2003, Red China suffered a killer earthquake with a magnitude of 6.1. (33) At nearly the same time, a 6.6 magnitude quake shook the Philippines, and quakes also hit Japan, Taiwan, Sumatra, Iran, Greece, and Mexico. (34) In the United States, the state of Virginia was shaken by the largest quake since the 1880’s. (35) We also know that there have been 11 massive explosions on the sun since October 19th, 2003. Each one of the 11 explosions sent a cloud of charged or ionized particles exactly 13 times the size of the earth. (36) The sun is rapidly changing and scientists are predicting many more explosions on its surface. These signs and many others are the very signs that Jesus told us to watch for and to pray about. His coming is at the very door!

As I conclude this first issue of the new year of 2004, I pray that all who read this letter will be moved to prayer and to a deeper dedication to the Lord Jesus. As always, please send in your prayer requests as we take prayer seriously and will give your requests special and individual attention. We have teams of praying intercessors waiting to help you! I want to thank all of you who have renewed your subscription to the Last Trumpet, and I offer my sincerest thanks to all of you who support this ministry in so many ways. May God bless you exceedingly. Grace and peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

David J. Meyer
