America on the Road to Perdition!
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
“Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know ye not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the Kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.”
“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 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.”
II Thessalonians 2:1-3
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will begin the new year by carefully considering the true condition of our nation and the world as measured by the Scriptures, the absolute and perfect Word of Almighty God. Much could be said about the obvious evils that are in full-blown manifestation such as abortion, pornography, fornication, adultery, drugs, drunkenness, and so on. We could also consider all of the evil ramifications of the smut, sex, and filth that fill the television and movie screens and how people demand such and clamor for more. It has now been reported that there are over 280 million different pornographic websites on the internet. The road to perdition has become a super highway, and multitudes are racing down this broad way to eternal damnation at breakneck speed. In Isaiah 5:14 we read the following, sobering words: “Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.”
There is an even greater problem in our country that is at the root and base of all of the misbehavior and social distemper that plagues our erstwhile great nation. Character and basic decency seems to be in short supply. Men have forgotten how to be men, and women have forgotten how to be women. There seems to be no spiritual reference point for doing what is right in the sight of God, and we can safely say that the churches of our land have miserably failed, because they have capitulated with every kind of worldliness and idolatry. We have become a flag-waving society of misdirected people demanding that God bless us. We, as a nation, are blind to our own filthiness and perversion, and this sin-laden population of the last days has convinced itself that all will go to heaven. Our Lord Jesus warned us of the rude awakening which will take place at the brink of eternity. I urge every reader of this newsletter to exit that highway to hell by means of full and complete repentance before it is too late. Our days are numbered and the end of all things is at hand. Very soon we will see amazing things begin to happen as the deceptive spirits of antichrist begin to manifest their power to bring forth their so-called new age of Aquarius. The end is near and the coming of our Savior will end the antichrist scheme forever.
The New Administration of the First-Born Son!
On December 13th, 2004, the Associated Press made reference to President Bush as the first-born son. (1) The spiritual implications of this are quite obvious. We are now seeing great preparation being made for the inauguration, which is a spiritual event; however, we must ask regarding what spirit it is of. The word inauguration literally means to take omens. The word comes from the word augur, which means one who is invested with omens. Furthermore, the event takes place on the 20th day of January, which is highly significant in witchcraft and the realm of the occult. As a former astrologer saved by the grace of God, I can tell you that astrology is the time clock of the Illuminati, and it is impossible to practice witchcraft without it. It is the 20th day of each month when the sun crosses from one sign to the next as it travels through the so-called “houses of the heavens.” These twelve signs make up the wheel of the year or as the witches call it, “the wheel of fortune.” These passings of the sun from one sign to the next are called transitions, and the most vital of these twelve transitions is January 20; because the sun travels from Capricorn, the sign of the goat, into Aquarius, the 11th sign and haven of the new age of antichrist. Yes, it happens on inauguration day! This is the day when the President, with some religious leader standing next to him, will be invested with the spirits of Aquarius while he stands at the West Front of the U.S. Capitol (2) and faces the ancient Egyptian obelisk, known as the Washington Monument. This is an occult ceremony of the first magnitude.
We are now seeing workers scurrying like mad in preparation for this event of inauguration, which is costing countless millions of dollars and features nine gala balls all attended by the President. (3) Witches regard the number nine as a number of sacred celebration in reference to the ancient Egyptian Ennead and the Nine-Fold Goddess. That is why witches, who worship the Egyptian cat goddess Bast, say that a cat has nine lives. They believe that they, the witches, can change into cat form nine times. All of this is the devil’s business!
The theme of this forthcoming inauguration is “The Wartime President.” The heavy presence of the military will accentuate this. (4) Officials are very tight-lipped about details, but they have indicated that the entire ten-day event will be one of tremendous military display with President Bush reviewing the troops. (5) The whole event as planned will be very reminiscent of Berlin Germany in 1938. We can only wonder what plans and schemes are running through the mind of this man, George W. Bush, “the first-born son”, as he stands proudly at his Capitol building. What does he have in mind? What has he been told to do? Why are so many members of his cabinet jumping ship and trying to gain all the distance they can from this second-term President, who once told news commentator Larry King that he would like to be dictator?
One by one the Cabinet Secretaries began to resign: Tom Ridge of Homeland Security, Colon Powell of the State Department, Tommy Thompson of Health and Human Services, Richard Armitage - U.S. Deputy Secretary of the State Department, John Snow of the Treasury Department, Anthony Principi of Veterans Affairs, John C. Danforth - Ambassador to the United Nations, and so on. All four members of the top management team of the FBI have resigned, and now all four of their successors have resigned as well. (6) What do all of these people know, and what are they seeing that they are not telling us? Why are they running like mad from their “honorable” offices? Even Sean O’Keefe, the head of NASA, is resigning. It is a mass exodus!
Donald Rumsfeld, who is now 72 years of age and the oldest man to ever hold the post of Secretary of Defense, is staying on. This man will soon prove to be real trouble. Here let it be noted that the outgoing Secretary of Health and Human Services, Tommy Thompson, dared to voice his fears, saying that he worries every single night about massive poisoning the American food supply. His exact words were these: “I. for the life of me, cannot understand why the terrorists have not yet attacked our food supply, because it is so easy to do.” (7) We know that perilous times are upon us, and every true Christian knows that it is only prayer that is sustaining us.
The Perplexity of War!
When will it end? So many lives have been lost in both Afghanistan and Iraq, and the situation grows worse. Over 1,000 of our sons and daughters are dead and for what? Countless thousands have lost arms and legs, not to mention having their faces blown off. Over 100,000 civilian Iraqis are dead, and the bloodshed continues while our so-called “Christian” President prepares for the glitter and limelight of his inaugural balls. This senseless war is accomplishing nothing, and the people of Iraq are not liberated! They just have a different kind of tyrant. While countless millions of dollars are being spent on the President’s celebrations, our soldiers have to dig in garbage dumps to find pieces of scrap metal to tie onto their vehicles as armor. Here let it be noted that Rumsfeld was caught off guard and received an earful from troops that he was speaking to in Kuwait on December 9th, the 13th day before the witches’ sabat of Yule. As Rumsfeld spoke several verbal exchanges erupted. Thank God for the brave men that spoke up and challenged this incompetent Secretary of Defense. Spec. Thomas Wilson spoke up and said that he and his comrades had to dig up rusty pieces of metal from junkyards to improvise armor plate for their vulnerable vehicles. Rumsfeld replied “As you know, you go to war with the Army you have. They’re not the Army you might want or wish to have at a later time. If you think about it, you can have all the armor in the world on a tank, and a tank can blow up.” A female soldier spoke up and said she was being kept in the Army against her will by a Pentagon “stop-loss” order. Rumsfeld replied, “It is something you prefer not to have to use, obviously, in a perfect world. It’s been used as little as possible.” A third soldier from the Idaho Army National Guard said that Guard units were being issued “antiquated” equipment, inferior to that being given to regular army units. Rumsfeld replied, “The Army is trying to be equitable but somebody has to get the older gear.” Finally, a lieutenant colonel spoke up saying that many of the soldiers in his unit are having trouble receiving all the pay due them, and their families back home are being pestered by collection agents. Rumsfeld acted surprised and said that he wanted more details. (8)
Quite obviously, things are not going well in Iraq. God will not bless the efforts of the antichrist conspirators. We have now received a report that over 5,000 semi-retired, called the IRR or Individual Ready Reserve, have been called to active duty. This is a sign that the Army needs even those who may not be quite so able bodied as younger men, and they are needed quickly. (9) Even Viet Nam veterans in their 50’s are being called up to go to Iraq. Recently, Sgt. William Chaney, 59, of Schaumburg, Illinois, was called up with his National Guard unit and became the oldest soldier to die in Iraq. This story appeared in a New York Daily News article entitled Grandpa’s Headed to Iraq. (10) This is indeed a sad time in our country. Why isn’t our National Guard here in the United States guarding the nation?
All indicators reveal that a severe manpower shortage exists already and that a major buildup of troops in Iraq is underway. (11) We also know that a major offensive in Afghanistan is now beginning. (12) Meanwhile, outgoing Secretary of State Colin Powell announced on the 18th day of November that Iran is pursuing the nuclear bomb. (13) On October 31st, the witches’ sabat of Samhain, the Iranian Parliament unanimously approved uranium enrichment for nuclear weapons and stood to their feet chanting “Death to America.” (14) If we must face war with other nations, where will the resources come from? President George Bush clearly promised that there will be no military draft during his administration. We all heard it! The only way he can work this out is if he orchestrates another horrifying “terrorist” attack that is so severe that he can declare a draft is warranted.
On November 5th, 2004, Christopher Hedges, author, and former war correspondent for the New York Times, delivered a speech to 120 students and residents at Manhattan College. In his speech were the following words: “We are losing the war in Iraq very badly, but the Bush administration will not walk away from the debacle without trying to reoccupy huge swaths of the territory they have lost. To regain territory lost in Iraq, it will take double or triple the current 140,000 troops. The reservists and National Guard members who make up half of the U.S. forces are stretched to the breaking point and need relief, and the draft is the only way to assemble the numbers needed. Reintroduction of the draft will be made in the name of the war on terrorism soon after an attack in the United States or abroad. The war in Iraq will no longer be an abstraction; it will become deeply personal. In the next few weeks, look for shifts in administration policy leading in a direction of an escalation of the war.” (15)
I have a letter from the Selective Service System, Region I, in North Chicago, Illinois, signed by Region Director Thomas G. White, and the letter indicates that the Selective Service System is very much alive and active and is actively seeking more personnel. Clearly, something is going on. This is so sinister, and the satanic nature of the beast is beginning to stand out. In the August 1st, 2004, issue of Parade Magazine, General Tommy Franks said, “To get information, we have to marry the devil or at least employ him.” (16) With those words we can better understand the report that came through regarding the devastated city of Fallujah on Tom Brokaw’s final broadcast on NBC, as he was about to retire from that network. The following startling words were heard as the reporter explained the plan for refugees returning to Fallujah as follows: “So far the plan is for most of the city’s 250,000 residents to return in stages and first only a few thousand will be let in. They’ll be fingerprinted, given a retina scan and then an ID card, which will only allow them to travel around their homes or to nearby aid centers which are now being built. The Marines will be authorized to use deadly force against those breaking the rules…..Tom?” Brokaw said: “Richard, what’s the latest on the election?..... (17) There you have it - those refusing to be fingerprinted, retina scanned, and those who refuse the ID card are to be shot dead.
Spirits of Antichrist Globalism!
Illuministic Management of Human Resources!
The voices of antichrist globalism are rising from every part of the world as Satan marshals his forces to bring forth his one-world government. On December 9th, 2004, the NATO Alliance held a world strategy meeting in Brussels. (18) As previously mentioned, the 9th day of December is the 13th day before the witches’ sabat of Yule. On that same day, December 9th, 2004, the European Union held special meetings in Brussels concerning entry negotiations. (19) Just one day prior to the meetings of these world bodies, labor leader John Sweeney of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations said, “Globalization is here to stay and the labor movement must adapt by fighting across national lines for an international order that protects workers.” (20) He is thus calling for one international labor union to unify the labor-class of the world. This is world-wide Communism in a thin disguise.
While all of this is going on, the U.S. dollar is rapidly losing power against the other major currencies of the world. On December 5th, 2004, the Euro hit an all-time high against the dollar, (21) and the dollar hit a 12-year low against the British pound. (22) This is causing foreign investors to buy more businesses in the United States since they have vastly more buying power under the current circumstances.
On November 29th, 2204, the leaders of 13 Southeast and Northeast Asian states formed a new summit-level grouping to collectively become a major world power. These kings of the East, including ASEAN or the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, are rapidly rising in power. (23)
Many other strange spirits are at work to prepare the way for the rise of the antichrist. Recently, a new major motion picture was released and immediately topped the charts throughout the United States. The movie is called National Treasure, and the basic theme of this movie is globalism and a one-world government. The story is filled with twists and turns and various intrigues involving Freemasonry and other secret societies. It conveys the message that there is a secret treasure so vast and spiritually powerful that it unifies all the cultures and nations of the world. This treasure is maintained in perpetual secrecy by the essential secret societies, and it contains priceless artifacts of all the ancient religions and all of the ancient empires of one-world governments including Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome. The movie is full of Masonic symbols and features the Illuminati crest of the truncated pyramid and the all-seeing eye. The headline of the posters and advertisements for this movie is “The clues are right in front of your eyes.” (24)
On the 13th day after the movie National Treasure was released, President Bush made a trip to Canada. He did not go to one of the largest cities but chose Halifax, Nova Scotia. Nova Scotia is a sacred land to the witches, Freemasons, and especially to the secret society of the Knights Templar. It is the home of what is said to be the Oak Island Money Pit or hidden sacred treasure. Nova Scotia means New Scotland and answers to the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. Nova Scotia is also considered to be the sacred gate of the north in the realm of the occult. We know that the United Nations’ symbol is the world as viewed from the utmost north. In Isaiah 14:12-13 we read as follows: “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north.”
It was in this gateway to the north where President George Bush made a speech using the exact words that Adolph Hitler used so many times and the same words that his father, George H.W. Bush, used on September 11th, 1990, eleven years to the day before the twin towers came down in New York City. President Bush stood in Nova Scotia and challenged international leaders to “create a new world order.” (25) Over 100,000 Canadians vehemently protested Bush’s visit!
Other intrigues were developing around the world. In the Middle East, many people are still asking questions about the mysterious death of the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. All records are sealed, and the French government insists that Arafat was not poisoned. (26) At the same time that Arafat became suddenly sick unto death, religious leaders from “Christian” churches met with Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger in Jerusalem to form a new organization called the United Nations of Religion. (27)
While all of these things were happening, a scandal broke out in the United Nations regarding Secretary General Kofi Annan and his son receiving vast amounts of money while manipulating Iraqi “oil for food” transactions. (28) Will this scandal cause Kofi Annan to step down or be removed from office? If so, who will replace him? We know that Bill Clinton has made it clear that he wants the job of Secretary General of the United Nations, and Hillary Clinton wants to be the next President of the United States. We also know that President Bush is considering sending Bill Clinton to Israel to orchestrate a peace pact. (29) In addition to that, the United Nations is about to go through a great change, and a report on that change was due December 2nd, 2004. The report calls for the establishment of a special security council consisting of a panel of sixes from the four quarters of the earth, totaling 24. There will be six from the Americas, six from Africa, six from Asia, and six from Europe. (30) So much is happening so quickly now that we begin the year of 2005. The United States and Canada need to beware of a major event that will hurl them into great fear and a quantum leap into antichrist subservience.
These last days are very strange times to be living in as sinister forces move quickly to manage and control the human populations of the world. On one of my many visits to the United Nations in New York City, I learned from a UN official that the UN was actively involved in population reduction. On November 28th, 2004, the United Nations’ World Health Organization or WHO, predicted that a pandemic of severe influenza will break out this year and peak in February, 2005. Officials stated that well over a billion people will get sick with this flu, and millions will die from it. (31) These health officials clearly stated that over one fourth of the population of the world will be sick with this flu during a three month period. Meanwhile, the U.S. Government has now announced that they have purchased millions of doses of an unapproved, experimental flu vaccine from Europe, and those receiving it must sign a paper stating they will not hold the government responsible for what could happen to them. (32) The big question is this: How do these health officials know so much about when and where the flu will break out? It is not winter weather that causes a flu season. Where do these viruses come from? In what laboratories are they manufactured? Most people don’t ask such questions; in fact, most people go through life without thinking for themselves. That is why the powers of darkness continue to work and enslave mankind. When the Lord Jesus saves your soul, He also gives you ears to hear and eyes to see. Thankfully, He also gives us the power of prayer whereby we obtain victory.
We are living in a time when Dr. Frankenstein would win the Nobel Prize. Recently, MSNBC reported that biologists are raising hybrid animals called “chimeras.” In Minnesota, pigs are being born with human blood in their veins. In Nevada, there are sheep whose livers and hearts are largely human. In California, mice peer from their cages with human brain cells firing inside their skulls. (33) These animals are given the name “chimeras” after the mythical Greek creature with a lion’s head, a goat’s body, and a serpent’s tail. The hybrid creatures thus become biological homes for evil spirits and are produced by introducing human stem cells from aborted human babies into the animal fetuses. (34) When President Bush, who is thought to be anti-abortion, signed the stem cell legislation, he opened the satanic door to this sort of grotesque evil. The report goes on to say “Genetic engineering allows these critters to make human proteins such as insulin for use in medicines.” (35)
Witchcraft and Immorality!
The world is declaring its sin as Sodom, and we know that the coming of the Lord is nigh. On December 9th, the 13th day before the witches’ sabat of Yule, the Canadian High Court approved same-sex marriage. (36) New Zealand is about to do the same thing. Such things bring the wrath of God upon children of disobedience.
Immediately after the Presidential election here in the United States, the Javits Center in New York City hosted the Gay Life Expo, which was billed as one of the center’s liveliest trade shows. Exhibitors at the show included Mercedes-Benz, State Farm, Jet Blue, Orbitz.com, HSBC, Avis, and numerous other large corporations. (37) We know that the sin that brought down Sodom and Gomorrah was homosexuality; that was the last straw with Almighty God. We also read about Sodom in Ezekiel 16:49 as follows: “Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness…..” These are the very conditions of our nation at this time, and the next thing to follow is God’s fiery judgment!
Satan has many representatives of his kingdom of darkness at work in the world today. The occult actress Mia Farrow, who played the bride of Satan in the infamous Roman Polanski movie Rosemary’s Baby, has been chosen as goodwill ambassador for the United Nations’ Children Fund. (38)
On November 15th, 2004, the immensely popular radio host Garrison Keillor, famous for his National Public Radio Show, “A Prairie Home Companion”, made a speech at Chicago’s Rockefeller Memorial Chapel. During this speech he said, “I am now the chairman of a national campaign to pass a constitutional amendment to take the right to vote away from born-again Christians. Just a little project of mine. My feeling is that born-again people are citizens of heaven, that is where their citizenship is, in heaven, it’s not here among us in America.” (39) During this speech there was roaring laughter and applause. This country’s days are numbered!
Response of an Outraged Creation!
Is our planet responding to the heavy weight of sin, and is our Earth groaning and travailing as judgment looms largely on the horizon? Volcanic activity continues to increase, including the Manam volcano in New Guinea, the Goma volcano in the Congo, and numerous others around the world. Mt. St. Helens in Washington State continues to rumble, and it has formed a pulsating dome as large as an aircraft carrier. (40) Mt. St Helens is now Washington’s worst source of pollution, as it is spewing out up to 250 tons of sulfur dioxide per day. (41)
Earthquakes continue in divers places exactly like the warnings given in Matthew, chapter 24, and Luke, chapter 21. There are continual rumblings miles below the San Andreas Fault in California. (42) Other recent earthquakes by date and magnitude are as follows: Mt. Rainier, Washington, Nov. 9th, 3.2; Costa Rica, Nov. 20th, 6.2; Guadeloupe, Nov. 21st, 6.3; Milan, Italy, Nov. 25th, 5.2; Jakarta, Indonesia, Nov. 28th, 6.4; Northern Japan, Nov. 29th, 7.1; Erzurum, Turkey, Dec. 4th, 4.4; Strasbourg, France, Dec. 5th, 5.4; Northern Japan, Dec. 6th, 6.9; Portugal, Dec. 13th, 5.4; and the Caribbean near Jamaica, Dec. 15th, 6.8. (43)
In addition to volcanoes, earthquakes, crumbling polar icecaps and freak weather, there are also massive swarms of locusts in many places around the world that are so numerous that they darken the sky. At the end of November, 2004, these giant locusts plagued the Israeli State, Mexico, the Spanish Canary Islands, and the land of Egypt. The pictures of this plague in the land of Egypt showed swarms of giant locusts so thick that you could barely see the pyramids in the background. (44)
I have been watching and praying and publishing this newsletter for nearly 25 years, and I have never seen times such as these. The Scripture is being fulfilled before our very eyes every day. Even so, come Lord Jesus.
In closing, may God bless and strengthen you in this New Year. If you have not yet sent in your renewal notice or somehow contacted us, please remember to do so if you want to receive this newsletter in 2005. I offer my sincere thanks to all who have helped us to publish this prophetic, end-time newsletter. May God bless you. Please remember to send your prayer requests, and we will give them immediate individual attention. We will continue to publish this newsletter until our Lord Jesus returns as God gives us His grace to do so. Grace and peace be multiplied unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
