A Dying America Refusing To Be Rescued!
“Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. Why should ye be stricken any more? Ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint….Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.”
Isaiah 1:4-5, 18-20
“They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace. Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? Nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord. Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Also, I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.”
“Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the well-favoured harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts. Behold, I am against thee, saith the Lord of hosts; and I will discover thy skirts upon thy face, and I will show the nations thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame. And I will cast abominable filth upon thee, and make thee vile, and will set thee as a gazingstock.”
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will once again apply the infallible Word of God to the current condition of our nation and the rest of world. As we do this, we will see an urgent picture begin to form which will bring to light the immutable fact that our Lord and Saviour is about to return to this sin-infested planet. We live in a world that is self-willed and prideful with the vast majority of people clinging to false religions, false hope, and false peace. Morals, character, and decency have been forgotten as a new antichrist society emerges everywhere. People everywhere are being indoctrinated every day to accept the manifestation of the mystery of iniquity that is now rising. This world is no longer the world we were born into. It is different now and the masterminds of the Illuminati conspiracy are continually brainwashing people into thinking that it is a better world and a new age. We are being continually told that if we can just win this war and the next one and the next one, we will enjoy an utopia and perfect harmony.
While the new world order rises, the earth itself is crumbling along with the people who are deceived into loving and embracing this system. It is so sad to see so many people marching lock-step down the broad way that leads to destruction. Multitudes are heading for perdition and eternal damnation, but if they would humble themselves under the mighty hand of the Almighty and truly repent, it would break the powers of darkness. No matter what anyone else does or refuses to do, you can come to the Saviour right now and yield yourself completely to Him. The Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, will forgive you and bring the power of salvation into your heart. This world will soon be gone forever, but we look for a new heavens and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness. Cry out to the Saviour now before it is too late. The crescendo of urgency is at its apex!
Entertaining the Spirits of Lust and Witchcraft!
In last month’s issue of the Last Trumpet, I warned that the powers of occultism that prevail so heavily in the United States, especially in our government, would bring forth a propensity toward war and violence during the months of March and April. Their religious occult-timing device is astrology, and during this time is an astrological configuration known as the Mars’ ingress. Since I issued that warning in the March newsletter, we have seen a wave of violence and bloody turmoil, not only in Iraq and other war zones but also in courthouses, schools, and churches. This past weekend there was a mass murder shooting spree during a church service in a suburb of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Seven people, including the Pastor and his sixteen year-old son, were instantly killed, and others were wounded as the gunman pumped out 24 rounds in 60 seconds. The killer then turned the gun on himself and died with his victims. The gunman had no prior criminal record or record of mental illness. He was a member of the church. It was noted by his friends that immediately after the killings, the dark look on his face instantly changed and he looked normal again. His face changed as if someone had flipped a switch. There appeared to be no known motive for the mass killing, so the Brookfield police are investigating the church and made a major issue out of the church’s doctrine. The church is being scrutinized for preaching “doomsday” doctrines and majoring on Bible prophecy about the end of the world. (1) This is the very message of Jesus Christ and His apostles, but the authorities are inferring that when you preach and teach that message, you will have tragic killings. When considering the results of an Illuminati induced event, you can always find its planned purpose. I have no doubt that this killer was programmed and under a mind control project. Remember the Manchurian Candidate?
Without a doubt it is high time that every true Christian begins praying with intense fervency and with great faith. We live in a self-righteous nation where the vast majority of the people are laden with every kind of sin and are in the depths of iniquity even though they refuse to acknowledge it. It was German author Johann Wolfgang von Goethe who said, “The man in the street does not notice the devil even when the devil is holding him by the throat.”
The sodomite homosexuals and lesbians continue their relentless push to control society, and on March 14, 2005, the eve of the Ides of March, a California Superior Court judge ruled that the state’s ban on homosexual marriage is unconstitutional. (2) In these last days every kind of sexual lust spirit has been unleashed, and perverseness has filled our land. It was recently announced that the infamous rock group Motley Crue is going on a 50-date North American tour and is doing a sell-out business. Their tour is called Carnival of Sins. (3) In another announcement, Sony Pictures stated that they will release a major summer movie this year entitled Bewitched! (4) Lust and witchcraft spirits work together, and they have insatiable appetites which they infuse into their human stooges. Recently, rock singer Bono of U2 teamed up with fashion designer Rogan Gregory to promote a new fashion brand called EDUN, (5) which is nude spelled backwards. It is common occult practice to spell words backwards, and in doing so they construct a reverse vocabulary.
From the White House on down, evil spirits of lust stay continually active. Recently, the International Herald Tribune reported that President Bush is reading and recommending to others a book by Tom Wolfe entitled I Am Charlotte Simmons. This book is described as a “racy new beer – and sex-soaked novel.” It is the story of a God-fearing girl from the back-woods of North Carolina, who is the first in her family to go to college. At first she is shocked at the booze and debauchery, but eventually she succumbs in a chapter-long deflowering scene at the hands of a drunken fraternity rat. She then sinks into a depression.
The author of this filthy book, Tom Wolfe, was invited to the White House by Laura Bush in 2004 to speak at an author’s function. When Wolfe was asked why President Bush liked his book, he answered, “I imagine he responding to the blinding talent, but beyond that, I’m just not sure.” (6) Some have speculated that the President likes this book because it reminds him of his old college days and the things he did when he was the hard-partying president of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity at Yale University. (7)
Spirits of sexual lust exert great pressure, and because they bring a form of intense pleasure to undiscerning humanity, there is a great reluctance to be free from them, and many people who gain some degree of freedom often return to that satanic pigpen for more. There is, however, absolute deliverance from these tenacious spirits through the Lord Jesus Christ who conquered all the realm of Satan! Unbridled lust in our so-called civilized society is a sign that our Lord is soon to return with flaming fire upon a demoralized and depraved society that has come to believe that it is normal to be abnormal. In Isaiah 5:20 we read of this as follows: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!”
The United Nations, Terrorism, and Population Reduction!
It has been three and one half years since the 9-11 attacks on U.S. soil, and the Department of Homeland Security continues to remind us that sometime soon the other shoe will drop. Spain has just marked the first anniversary of the Madrid train bombings with a ceremony at the Forest of the Departed where a tree was planted for each of the 191 victims. In occult numerology that number of 191 becomes 11, the number of the age of Aquarius. The Forest of the Departed is also known as the Grove and Forest of the Absent. (8) This enchanted forest is occultism of the first magnitude.
As the threat of terrorism is continually set in front of us, we are also hearing the words peace and safety being used more and more by our various world leaders, especially by President George W. Bush. Meanwhile, former President Bill Clinton is slowly rising in power on the world and international scene. It was none other than U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan who handpicked Bill Clinton to oversee the eleven nations that were hit by the tsunami on December 26th, 2004. Clinton has charge of all of the reconstruction in that vast and densely populated area of the world. (9) It was also Kofi Annan who recently presented what the Associated Press called “an apocalyptic warning” to the world regarding the use of nuclear weapons by terrorists. Annan said, “I urge the European Union and the United States to work more closely as the backbone of a
new world order in the 21st century.” (10)
We know that Bill Clinton is actively seeking the position of U.N. Secretary-General and wants to be supreme leader of an one-world government. Recently, former U.S. Senator Jesse Helms, an ultra-conservative from North Carolina who served five terms, said that one of his greatest fears is that Bill Clinton would become the head of the U.N. Jesse Helms said, “I’m sure you might agree that putting a left-wing, undisciplined and ethically challenged former President of the United States into a position of such power would be a tragic mistake.” (11)
There are very strange circumstances that surround Bill Clinton, especially regarding his open heart surgery in August, 2004. The doctors said before the surgery that his arteries were 90 percent blocked and that he was near to death. (12) Bill Clinton told ABC News personality Diane Sawyer that he was tormented by images of death while unconscious during the surgery. Former President Clinton said, “I saw, like, dark masks crushing, like death masks being crushed, in series. Then I’d see these great circles of light. And then, like, Hillary’s picture or Chelsea’s face would appear on the light, and then they’d fly off into the dark, into the distance.” (13) Strangely enough, Clinton’s medical condition was diagnosed at the Westchester Medical Center in
Valhalla, New York. (14) Valhalla in Old Norse mythology was a mystical place where fallen heroes would dwell. Then, on the day of President Bush’s second inauguration, Bill and Hillary Clinton were seen walking through the
Crypt of the Capitol in Washington, and Hillary was wearing an unusually large phoenix at the left front shoulder of her coat. (15)
The world is in a very unstable condition at this time as the new age of antichrist emerges. The giant nation of Red China has announced that they will use non-peaceful means to control Taiwan. (16) Red China has become a super-power economically, and it was recently reported by BBC News that China has overtaken the United States in the consumption of basic agricultural and industrial goods. The report included the following: “Sixty-four million tons of meat were consumed in China in 2004 compared to thirty-eight million tons in the U.S. 258 million tons of steel were used in China in 2003 compared to 104 million in the U.S. China used 40% more coal than the U.S. and the number of personal computers in China is doubling every 28 months.” (17)
We also know that Red China has filled the shelves of our stores with their goods because of chain stores like Walmart and have thus seized upon our economy. Red China is also one of the largest users of gasoline, and here in America we are seeing prices rising above 3.00 per gallon in some areas like California. To top it off, Red China issued a statement on March 5th, 2005, saying that any pillows or anything stuffed with feathers from their country may likely contain the bird flu virus, which has become so prevalent in the Far East! (18)
Here let it be noted that all such viruses are designed and manufactured in laboratories and are intentionally introduced into the human population even though some type of animal is always blamed as a carrier. This is all being done to reduce the human population of the planet. An U.N. official once admitted to me in front of witnesses that the U.N. is active in many forms of population reduction, and they make their plans for such activities in their social engineering chamber. I was told that while standing in that very chamber. The reason why the scientists know so much about the viruses and can pinpoint the timing of when and where they will come out is because they have designed them. The World Health Organization of the United Nations has recently announced that 80 million Africans will soon die of the AIDS virus! (19) The New England Journal of Medicine reported that in segments of the Far East the bird flu virus, known as “Avian Influenza A (H5N1)” is 73% fatal in children! The children develop diarrhea and quickly slip into a coma followed by death. (20)
In the United States, many of the old diseases that were thought to be eradicated are reappearing. Tuberculosis is one example. With countless thousands of illegal aliens arriving in our country every day, we find the arrival of microscopic killers that continually infect the otherwise healthy population. Many who were caught were detained and found to have infectious diseases.
There is truly an alien invasion, especially from Mexico, and it is all part of the Illuminati plot to weaken America and bring forth a United North America by combining the United States with Canada and Mexico. It has already happened in Europe. The Texas Transportation Commission has now announced a plan to build the Trans Texas Corridor, which is to be an 800-mile trade and traffic corridor from the Mexican border to Oklahoma. It is to be a double 4-lane highway with 8 lanes for car and truck traffic. There is also to be a corridor along the side for trains and pipelines for water, oil, natural gas, electricity, and fiber optics. The cost is a whopping 185 billion dollars. (21)
The combining of nations through interlocking agreements causes many new problems to develop. One such problem is the European plan to regulate vitamins and supplements, known as the Codex Alimentaris legislation. This law was adopted in November, 2004, and is scheduled to take effect in June, 2005. Under this legislation over 5,000 vitamins and supplements will be regulated by prescription if their strength exceeds the recommended daily allowance and must be produced by drug companies. It is not just Europe that is affected, however, because the United States belongs to the WTO or World Trade Organization. There is now a Senate bill and a House Resolution to support the CODEX restrictions with U.S. laws. Senate bill S.722 and House Resolution H.R.3377 support the European CODEX plan and will bring those restrictions to our country. (22) This will cause great problems and take more freedom from the people of the United States. It is time to pray that these foreign laws to take away our freedom to purchase vitamins and supplements do not become law in the United States. It is all part of the one-world government scheme.
The United Nations has now announced another project: the registry of every baby born. UNICEF has a new program called “Write me down, make me real.” The program is being promoted by South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the Nobel Peace Prize winner. Speaking for the U.N., Tutu said, “It is, in a very real sense, a matter of life and death. The unregistered child is a non-entity. The unregistered child does not exist. How can we live with the knowledge that we could have made a difference?” (23)
In cooperation with this U.N. plan, the aid agency Plan USA released a report entitled “Universal Birth Registration – a Universal Responsibility.” (24) For the first time ever, we are seeing one-world birth certificates for world citizens! Thankfully, the prayers of faith are heard, and soon our Saviour will appear!
Spirits of Blood-Lust and World War III
In Iraq, the ancient land of Babylon, the bloody war continues and becomes more senseless as time goes on. It would not take much to bring the entire world into the horrors of a global conflict. Everything is being set up for it, as the hatred of festering factions increases. These are truly the days when people cry, “Peace, peace”, but there is no peace! The cost of the war is astronomical in every way as so many lives are ruined and destroyed. In addition to that, the United States has spent $120 billion dollars on the war in Iraq in that past two years. This breaks down to $630 million dollars per month, $147 million dollars per week, or $21 million dollars per day. (25) In addition to all of that expenditure, the United States is maintaining 48 significant military bases in the Middle East and Central Asia. (26) At the same time, the U.S. is planning to close numerous military bases here in the homeland. A nine-member panel was set up on the Ides of March or March 15th to determine which bases will be closed. (27)
The U.S. Army has also announced that they are facing a prolonged recruiting slump as they are falling far below their quotas for new military personnel. More and more young people are refusing to join the military, and the reason they are giving is that they do not want to fight in a war they do not believe in! (28) It has been reported that 30% of the soldiers coming back from Iraq are suffering flashbacks and recurring nightmares. That is why the Food and Drug Administration is making the illegal drug ecstasy legal for military use. (29) The active ingredient of ecstasy is MDMA, which melts the emotions and gives a sense of closeness and well-being. It is said to induce an intense feeling of peace and safety. This drug is also being given to victims of rape, sexual abuse, and post-traumatic stress disorder. (30)
There is nothing moral or just about the war in Iraq! We are supposed to believe that this is a God-ordained war and that President Bush and his administration are the good guys. Evil comes in many forms and nobody is right if everybody is wrong. The Associated Press recently issued a shocking report regarding the tactics used by our U.S. Military against the Muslim detainees at the U.S. prison camp in Guantanamo Bay. Since Moslems firmly believe that they are to not even touch a woman other than their wives, the Pentagon used special tactics to break the mind, will, and emotions of these men. Female interrogators, dressed like prostitutes, subjected the men to late-night questioning, including inappropriate touching. In at least one case, a scantily clad female interrogator used fake blood and rubbed it on the face of the Moslem prisoner telling him it was her menstrual blood. The water in the cell had been turned off so he could not wash, and he cried and wept uncontrollably while praying. This story was confirmed by former Army Sgt. Erik R. Saar, who witnessed at least 20 interrogations. (31) It appears that the spirit of the Gestapo lives on in the Pentagon!
Is World War III truly on the horizon? We know that all Bible prophecy must be fulfilled, and that there is a final great war that centers in the Middle East. Atomic weapons are a frightful reality, and the United States has recently launched a program to redesign and improve its atomic weapons arsenal. Our nation’s three nuclear weapons laboratories at Los Alamos, Livermore, and Sandia are now busy designing a whole new generation of nuclear weapons. (32) It appears that the greatest of all wars will take place just as the Lord is about to return. In Revelation 16:14-16 we read as follows: “For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” It also appears that while the whole world is preoccupied with war, all forces will be turned against the coming of the Lord Jesus and the New Jerusalem which is now above. In Revelation 19:19 we read, “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.” Will sinful man try to use atomic weapons against the returning Lord Jesus, and will the Almighty cause man to destroy himself with his own weapons? In Zechariah 14:12 we read: “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.”
As we watch the intrigue in the Middle East and hear of more wars developing, we can clearly see the precision of the Scriptures. Recently, Vice President Dick Cheney said, “You look around the world at potential trouble spots; Iran is right at the top of the list.” (33) Is Iran next? The Pentagon has stated that they are regularly reviewing war plans against Iran! (34) On March 5th, 2005, Iran once again stated that they will never agree to a permanent halt on enriching uranium. (35) Is there another reason why President Bush is looking toward Iran with war in mind? In February, 2005, the New York Times published an article that originated in the Wall Street Journal entitled “Bush Hooked on Oil.” The article contained the following words: “The mullahs in Tehran, now swimming in cash thanks to the soaring oil prices, are shunning some foreign investors, rather than begging them to come into Iran.” (36) All of this oil money, wealth, and potential in the nation of Iran is quite obviously a pie cooling in the window, and the oil man Bush and American investors cannot get at it.
An Earth Reacting to the Evil of Mankind!
When we consider the true doctrine of the second coming of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, we are greatly moved in the Spirit, as every indicator points to the fulfillment of this great prophecy. The earth itself bears witness as it groans and travails continually. Every part of the earth seems to be facing some form of severe trouble. Much of the nation of France is facing severe drought this year and the situation is getting critical. (37) The northwestern United States is also facing drought, and on March 13, 2005, Washington Governor Christine O. Gregoire declared a statewide drought emergency. (38)
Glaciers around the world are melting rapidly. The ices of South America’s Andes Mountains, Alaska’s mountains, Montana’s Glacier National Park, and even Africa’s Mt. Kilimanjaro are liquefying at a great rate of speed. (39) In Frederikshob in southern Greenland, it was 61 degrees in February, which is warm, even for July in that area. (40)
Geologists have now discovered that a major earth plate has broken in two pieces. The Indo-Australian plate, which holds up both Asia and India, is now separated. (41) As the earth continues to move, volcanoes continue to erupt. On February 23rd, 2005, the Korovin Volcano near Atka, Alaska, erupted. On March 9th, it was Mt. St Helens in the State of Washington that erupted sending a plume of smoke and ash over 30,000 feet into the air. On the very next day, March 10th, 2005, Mexico’s Volcano of Fire near Colima, began to spew orange lava. (42)
The great end-time sign of “earthquakes in divers places” continues to be manifested. There are so many earthquakes happening that I cannot report them all, but here are some of the recent ones for this year 2005: February 22nd, Sarbagh, Iran, magnitude 6.4; February 23rd, Tokyo, Japan, magnitude 4.6; February 24th, Indonesia, magnitude 6.0; February 26th, Japan, two quakes, magnitudes 5.4 and 4.4; February 26th, Indonesia, magnitude 5.1; March 5th, two quakes near the North Pole, magnitudes 6.3 and 5.4; March 6th, Quebec, Canada, magnitude 5.4; March 11, Bali Island, Indonesia, magnitude 5.4; March 12th, eastern Turkey, magnitude 5.7; March 13th, New Zealand, magnitude 6.1; March 14th, Indonesia, magnitude 5.4; March 14th, Bombay, India, magnitude 5.1; March 14th, eastern Turkey, magnitude 5.9. (43)
On March 4th, 2005, a swarm of earthquakes began to happen off the coast of the State of Oregon. Scientists rushed to the area from Oregon State University and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Researchers said, “Thousands of small earthquakes are happening just off the western coast of the United States because the seafloor is spreading. We suspect what happened was that magma pushed up into the crust and the lava may have broken the surface.” (44)
Emergency government officials have been warning that tsunamis are a very real threat to all the coasts of the United States. They also stated that 52 percent of the population of the United States lives in a coastal county. (45) To make matters worse, the emergency government officials are recommending that since people cannot escape the coast lands fast enough, they should escape upward by going to the upper levels of high-rise buildings if a tsunami is about to strike. (46) If a wall of water 90 feet high, moving at 500 miles per hour, the speed of a jetliner were about to hit; I would not want to be at the top of a building. The coastlands are extremely vulnerable, and the Bible makes special mention of them. The word “island” is used in the Scripture to indicate coastland according to Strong’s Concordance. In Isaiah 59:18 we read as follows: “According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will pay recompence.”
In closing, I continue to urge every true Christian to pray fervently and work hard to reach out with the everlasting Gospel of Jesus Christ. To all of you who help this end-time ministry in so many ways, I send you my sincerest thanks. We continue to invite you to send your prayer requests as each one receives our individual attention. Grace and peace be multiplied unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
