The Double Curse of Babylon on America!
“So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication. And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”The Death Call of the Scarlet Harlot!
“And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.”
In this issue of the Last Trumpet, we will once again apply the precise and infallible Word of God to the shocking current events of our troubled world. As we do this, we will quickly see that every major news event is a sure testimony of the accuracy of the Bible. We know that age-old prophecies and similitudes of prophecy are being fulfilled every day before our very eyes, and yet almost no one is seeing all of these things as sure indicators that we are at the end of the world. In Matthew 16:3 Jesus said, “……O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?”
As we consider the title of this issue of the Last Trumpet, “The Double Curse of Babylon on America”, we must understand a few things about Babylon. Babylon was an ancient empire, and its king Nebuchadnezzar carried Judah from their homeland into a land of paganism and idolatry. Babylon was eventually destroyed and taken over by the empire of Medo-Persia, which was later taken over by the Grecian Empire and finally by the Roman Empire. By the time the book of Revelation was written, the physical empire of Babylon was long gone, but the Bible teaches us that it still exists as a Mystery Babylon. This is the mysterious force that controls the many forms of religion to this very day, for we are told in Revelation 17 that this system of Mystery Babylon is the mother religion of every harlot and abomination on earth.
The word Babylon appears in both the Old and New Testaments. In the Old Testament Hebrew language, Babylon means confusion. In the New Testament Greek language, Babylon means tyranny. These are the two forces that are at work in our nation and the entire world today. The people of this present world are living in a state of mixed signals, uncertainty, and confusion. It is this confusion of the masses of humanity that allows the masterminds of the Illuminati conspiracy to control and manipulate the entire population of planet earth to a very great extent. This condition will bring forth a time of trouble such as this world has never seen. It is all coming so fast now, and there is very little time left. Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, will soon appear with the flaming fires of judgment upon an ungodly world. If even the worst sinners would truly repent, however they would find the grace of God and full salvation. When this world is pulled out from under us, we have the assurance as true Christians that we will remain safe in the hand of the Almighty Saviour. Even now the earth is groaning and travailing under the weight of the gross sins and iniquity of a rebellious and defiant population that has been manufactured by the confusion and tyranny of Babylon.
This issue of the Last Trumpet is being written on the 14th day of April, 2005, and I must say that the first half of this month has been filled with amazing events and much occult activity. Most readers of this newsletter know that I was saved out of the world of witchcraft and occultism by the grace of the Lord Jesus, and that before my conversion, I was a practicing astrologer and numerologist. Because of my background in the realm of occultism, I look at things differently as I watch the events of the last days unfold. The recent death of Pope John Paul II is no exception. Witches, occultists, and astrologers of the Old Order believe that certain signs in the heavens signify major events on earth. I personally believe that all things are subject to the will of the Almighty, and that He is in absolute control. I also know that the Almighty Creator judges the occultic world after its own devices and allows their deception to work for a time, and that time is running out. Events seem to follow certain patterns in the evil realm, and the Pope’s death is a major sign from God.
As the month of March was ending and the new month of April was looming largely on the horizon, I began to feel and sense a strange foreboding. Impending evil was everywhere. In America emotions ran high as a young woman in Florida, Terri Schiavo, was being ritualistically murdered after having her feeding tube removed. Confusion was everywhere, and people wondered why nothing could be done. On March 30th, 2005, the Pope had a feeding tube inserted as his vital organs were beginning to fail. (1) On the next day, the last day of March, the Pope was given his last rites. (2) On April 2nd, 2005, the Pope died. (3) It was exactly 13 days after the witches’ sabat of Ostera or the vernal equinox. It was all quite amazing as I look back on it. We know that the late Pope’s predecessor, John Paul the First, was very anti-Mason and outspoken about the Masonic Lodge. That Pope died on the 33rd day he was in office. (4) The recent late Pope, John Paul the Second, was in office for 26 years, which in numerology is two 13’s. He was born on May 18th, 1920, in Wadowice, Poland, during an eclipse of the sun. His funeral was held on April 8th, 2005, during an eclipse of the sun. (5) His burial at St. Peters is in a crypt holding 147 other popes. (6) When we add the digits 1+4+7, we arrive at the sum of 12. Plus John Paul II equals 13. That is the crypt number in numerology.
When I saw the month of April approaching, I remembered that according to occult teaching either the presence of a comet or a lunar or solar eclipse portends the death of a world leader. I have written about this in many of my past newsletters. I could see at a glance that there were two eclipses in April, 2005. There was to be an eclipse of the sun on April 8th and one of the moon on April 24th. We now know that two world leaders died in April, 2005. Pope John Paul II was the first to die and Prince Rainier of Monaco was the second. (7) Prince Rainier was Europe’s longest-reigning monarch in our day so far and was in power for 56 years. (8)
The death of the Pope activated the strange death rituals governing the event. This included hitting the corpse in the head three times with a hammer made of pure silver and asking the corpse if he was really dead. His corpse was also carried through the Piazza San Pietro around the obelisk and through the ellipse. (9) The obelisk has always been a symbol of the sun god and the ellipse pertains to the moon goddess, and these symbols were used by witches for thousands of years before the Roman Catholics started using them. The Pope was placed in three coffins before being committed to the crypt. All of this is witchcraft of the first magnitude.
The word Vatican in classical Latin means divination or witchcraft. Revelation, chapter 17, gives a clear description of the Vatican as the great mother of harlots by telling us the following in verse 18: “And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” Verse nine of Revelation 17 further identifies Rome as the harlot as follows: “And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”
We must also consider Revelation 17, verses 1 and 15, as follows: “And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters…….And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” I have often referred to these verses to point out that this mystery religion of Babylon the Great encompasses a massive and diverse sea of humanity. When I saw an AFP News headline on April 7th, 2005, it truly arrested my attention because it said, “Sea of humanity floods Vatican, cardinals set date for conclave.” (10)
The funeral of Pope John Paul II was unique in many ways. More than 200 heads of state and religion attended the funeral in Rome on April 8th, 2005, the same day that the 11 nations ravaged by the tsunami saw the sun darkened by an annular eclipse. (11) For the first time in history, a sitting President of the United States attended a Papal funeral. President Bush referred to the Pope as the Holy Father and highly praised the Pope for helping to unify the world. Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton were also there, and they too, praised the Pope as a great unifying leader. (12) Even Moslem and Hindu leaders attended, and Reuters News Service featured the headline: “Foes reunited at Peace Pope’s funeral.” (13) There was a powerful spirit and force of world unity in the presence and shadow of the Vatican and in the presence of the papal corpse. In Revelation 18:3 we have an exact description of this as follows: “For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her…..” This verse and the other Bible verses which describe these events fit absolutely nothing but the Vatican!
On April 18th, 2005, the College of Cardinals will begin the selection process for a new Pope. (14) Beware of German Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who is a very hard and evil man. He will be 78 years old on April 16th. (15) That is interesting in light of the fact that the Roman Catholic St. Malachy compiled a list of future popes beginning with Pope Celestine II in 1143 A.D., and according to his projected list, there will be only two more popes after which Rome will be destroyed. Time will tell and there is not much time left!
Ritual Execution by the Iron-Fisted Beast!
It was a short period of time that should never be forgotten. The last days of Terri Schiavo revealed the true nature of the beast that is running our country. It was 13 days of heart-wrenching emotion as decency and common sense were twisted into grotesque contortions. Terri Schiavo was a woman who was brain-damaged but otherwise very much alive. She was on a feeding tube, because it would take great lengths of time to feed her otherwise. She was a woman with a severe disability but wanted to live. Her parents also wanted her to live, but her husband wanted her dead! When Terri was asked if she wanted to live, she struggled hard to get words out, but she was able to say, “I waaaant….” Her husband, Michael Schiavo, who had taken up with another woman, had guardianship custody over Terri and did everything he could to restrict her parents from seeing her and trying to help her in any way. Michael Schiavo also stated several days before her death that he was going to have Terri cremated, which caused even more pain to her family. (16)
The shock and frustration that swept our nation during those 13 days was amplified, because no power, no authority, and no entity of any kind seemed to be able to do anything. Here was a woman who was being publicly executed for 13 days by starvation and thirst, and the nation watched in horror and disbelief as all efforts to help her failed. One judge after another in various levels of courts refused to help her. The U.S. Senate passed legislation in a special session held on the witches’ sabat of March 20th, which proved to be worthless. (17)
In late March, midway between the witches’ sabat of Ostera and the full moon, a petition was filed with the Supreme Court at the 11th hour of night. The Supreme Court of the United States is supposed to consist of the nine greatest legal minds in the country. This highest of courts also turned Terri Schiavo down flat and refused to help her. As one prominent attorney answered when asked about the compassion aspect, “We have laws!”
As the month of March, 2005, was coming to an end, so were the possibilities of helping Terri Schaivo. The three branches of our Federal Government: Executive, Legislative, and Judicial, in effect did nothing! The insensitive and blood-chilling spirit of the beast that controls our Federal Government was revealing its true nature! This was an Illuminati project, a high-profile 13-day ritual execution.
While Terri Schaivo lay dying of hunger and thirst before an entire nation, many people tried to help her. I have in front of me photographs of children, boys and girls as young as ten years old, being led away in handcuffs by over-sized police officers that would have fit in perfectly with Hitler’s jack-booted Gestapo thugs! What was the crime of these little boys and young girls, including 13-year-old twin girls? They tried to bring Terri Schaivo a glass of water! (18) A government that is capable of doing such things is capable of doing anything! The beast government used these 13 days, which will live on in infamy, to show the people of America the bare-knuckled iron fist of a rising totalitarian antichrist! It is a small sample of what is to come, and only fervent prayer will sustain us! This present-day America is not the country I was born into, and it is not the country I remember. I am reminded of Daniel 7:19, which tells of a horrifying beast government as follows: “Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet.” We know that this was a description of the Roman Empire, but we also read of a beast that rises up in the last days that is even worse! In Revelation 13:1-2 we read as follows: “And I stood on the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.”
On the last day of March, 2005, Terri Schaivo died. Her loving parents were denied access to her at the moment of death. (19) We know that this case of Terri Schaivo, and how she suffered at the hands of a vicious iron-fanged government, will appear yet before a higher court as the Almighty calls it forth on Judgment Day!
The Systematic Dismantling of America!
The United States of America was unquestionably the greatest and most prosperous nation on earth. Never had a nation before it achieved such wealth and power. Now it is all changing, and this negative metamorphosis is picking up speed and momentum. The United States now ranks 49th in the world for literacy and 28th out of 40 in mathematical literacy. (20) The United States has lost 1.3 million jobs to Red China in the last decade. (21) Three million, six hundred thousand Americans ran out of unemployment compensation last year, and one in five are working less than six months of the year. (22) America was once called the breadbasket of the world, but as of June, 2004, the U.S. imported more food than it exported. (23) One-third of all U.S. children are now born out of wedlock, and one-half of all U.S. children now live in an one-parent home. (24) It is a sad fact that in all major categories of achievement and accomplishments, the United States is not even in the top ten anymore. The United States is, however, number one in the world for weaponry, consumer spending, and debt!
On March 31st, 2005, AFP News reported that Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, speaking to over 650 chief executives from 30 countries, said the following: “The U.S. dollar is facing an imminent collapse and the global economy will suffer a catastrophe when it is rejected as the currency for trade. The catastrophe will come one day because even the most powerful country in the world cannot repay loans amounting to seven trillion U.S. dollars.” (25)
AFP also reported on April 7th, 2005, that the U.S. dollar, which is already weak and struggling against other major currencies, was weakened all the more after a speech by U.S. Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan. (26) What is happening to our erstwhile great nation? Why are gasoline prices now over three dollars per gallon in some areas? (27) On March 31st, 2005, the investment firm of Goldman Sachs issued a report stating that oil prices are expected to spike at $105.00 per barrel. (28) What strange forces are at work in high places, and what are they doing to America? If you have wondered about the recent meetings called for by President Bush involving President Vincente Fox of Mexico and Prime Minister Paul Martin of Canada, you will soon have your answer. Plans are being made by the Council on Foreign Relations, which is the Illuminati in the United States, to unify Canada, Mexico, and the United States economically as one North American unit of their one-world government. (29)
We are now seeing a resistance movement rising up called the Minuteman Project. Volunteers from all over the United States are gathering at the Mexican border in large numbers to drive back the invasion of illegal aliens, who have been crossing into the United States by the thousands every day. (30) There are nearly 13 million illegal aliens now in the United States, and they have brought many infectious diseases with them. Tuberculosis and malaria are on the rise in the United States, and now 7,000 cases of leprosy have been diagnosed in the Northeastern states. (31)
There are powerful and dark forces at work in our own government that want to weaken the United States to a median level, so it will fit well as an interdependent unit of a global community. Population reduction and management are active programs in progress! Here let it be noted that an announcement was made on the 13th day of April, as reported by the Associated Press, that a 50-year-old killer virus was mistakenly sent to 5,000 laboratories in 18 countries, most of them in the United States. The deadly germ is the 1957 H2N2 “Asian Flu” strain, which killed nearly four million people in the 1950’s. It was also reported that anyone born after 1968 has little or no immunity to it. (32) It is certainly a time to pray and to have absolute faith in the only one who can help us. We will soon see and hear many more outrageous things, but we must allow faith and the intense love of God to purge all fear out of our hearts. You can know perfect peace and find the true Saviour in the pages of your Bible.
An Epidemic of Iniquity!
In recent newsletters, I warned that the time period from March to May would bring forth intense violence. Within that time period thus far, we have seen the reports of mass murders in schools, churches, courtrooms, and on the streets. The mass murder in a school in northern Minnesota is a prime example. As the witches’ sabat of Ostera was drawing to a close and the moon was waxing toward full, a 16-year-old student at the Red Lake High School in northern Minnesota went on a shooting rampage that left 10 people dead and 15 others injured. It was the worst school shooting since the Columbine massacre in 1999. Jeff Weise went to the school after killing his grandparents at their home and began to open fire. Witnesses said he smiled and waved at his victims while he shot them. The young gunman finally shot himself. (33) Many things have been said about this young man, who was no doubt programmed in a mind-control project by means of the internet, but we should also note that this young killer was being treated with the controversial drug Prozac. (34) Prozac is medically classified as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor or SSRI. We know that the chemical name for Prozac is fluoxetene, and contains a suspension of fluoride, which interferes with thought processes and prepares the mind for programming. Prozac opens the door of the mind for the entry of occult forces, and anything can happen after that. I have personally ministered in northern Minnesota, and I can definitely say that it is one of the most intense areas of occultism in the United States and a favorite area of the Grand Druid Council of 13. The most powerful witches in the world congregate there at certain times.
When our young people are drugged with mind-altering concoctions and fed a steady mental and spiritual diet of Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Dungeons and Dragons and such like, what should people expect to happen? To make matters worse, we have learned that a new sixth volume of Harry Potter is to be released at midnight on July 16th, 2005. This is the 18th day (three 6’s) before the witches’ high sabat of Lughnasaid or Lammas, which is the cross-quarter sabat of the harvest of souls. The new book is entitled Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. (35) The first print run of this book is set at 10.8 million copies according to publisher, Scholastic, Inc.
The occult messages and trigger phrases are being fed to children continually. The Star Wars movies are completely written in witchcraft jargon. When covens of traditionalist witches close their esbats and sabats, they depart with the words, “The Force be with you.” The Force is said to have two sides: the good and the dark, but every true Christian knows there is no good in witchcraft. Recently, Masterfoods USA released a new kind of M&Ms candy made with dark chocolate. I am looking at a wrapper of that candy, which has pictures which include Darth Vader. The words in the upper right hand corner say, “Go to the dark side.” (36)
Witchcraft and occultism breed immorality, and witch covens give general consent to lesbian and homosexual witches. The sodomites have risen up all over the world, and a queer celebration known as World Pride 2005 is set to take place in Jerusalem. (37) Yes, Sodom is coming to the earthly Jerusalem!
In the United States we are witnesses to one disgrace and shame after another. On March 25th, 2005, it was announced that the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission has approved a new historical marker for the area around Independence Hall to recognize that area as the site of the nation’s first organized and annual gay and lesbian civil rights’ demonstration. Not only was the decision of the commission unanimous, but the chairman of the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, Wayne Spilove, praised the homosexual organization, known as Equity Forum, which applied for this honor. Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell is planning to be on hand to unveil the marker at this event, which is also being held to honor the 40th anniversary of the GLBT or Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transsexual Civil Rights Movement. To top it off, the celebration is scheduled for May 1st, 2005, which is the witches’ high sabat of Beltaine as well as the birthday of world Communism. The May Day celebration is to include a tribute to gay pioneers with a concert featuring Cyndi Lauper, an interfaith service at historic Christ Church with homosexual Bishop Gene Robinson presiding, conversations with gay leaders, a Gay Icons Pavilion at the Independence Visitor’s Center, and a Sunday OUT street festival and parties. (38)
Our Crumbling, Sinful Planet Earth!
Never has there been a time such as this when so many signs of the Lord’s return are being given to us on a daily basis. There are continual signs in the heavens and on the earth. On February 18th, 2005, there was a massive and bright flash across our Milky Way Galaxy. It was so intense that it briefly altered our earth’s upper atmosphere. It was the brightest flash ever detected. The cosmic explosion gave off as much energy in one-tenth of a second as our sun would give off in 100,000 years. (39)
On March 14th, 2005, a bright fireball was seen in the sky from southern Oregon to Seattle, Washington. Authorities said that it was probably a meteor, but witnesses said it was moving slowly. (40) Another huge ball of fire that took the shape of a cross was seen over the eastern Spanish regions of Catalonia and Valencia on April 13th, 2005. (41)
On earth we have a continual rumbling and shaking as earthquakes are increasing in intensity and frequency. On March 28th, 2005, another strong earthquake with a magnitude of 8.7 shook Indonesia with a projected 2000 dead. (42) Truly, our Lord is coming soon, and even the most bemused doubting Thomas must admit that something is going on. During the two days of March 28th and 29th, 2005, we had 18 earthquakes with a magnitude of 5 and above. (43) While it is true that most of the earthquakes are happening in the Pacific Rim areas, many of them are happening all over the globe, including ones at the Equator and the Arctic Circle. Our earth is literally coming apart at the seams.
In addition to the earthquakes, we also have threatening volcanoes to remind us that the coming of the Lord draweth nigh! Indeed, volcanoes are one of the last signs pointing to the return of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. We have a clear description in Isaiah 64:1-3 of volcanoes happening as the Lord returns as follows: “Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence, As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence. When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence.”
On March 18th, 2005, the India Daily Newspaper featured the following headlines: “Many underwater volcanoes erupting simultaneously all over the world - tectonic disturbance steadily rising – are we headed for a major catastrophe?” (44) In conjunction with that, on April 14th, 2005, AFP News reported that Indonesia now has 129 active volcanoes, and 11 of them have been placed under close watch! (45) Clearly, the signs of the end of this present world are everywhere. It is my prayer that God will mercifully open the eyes of many who are now wandering around in a sleepy and deluded stupor. May the drowsy remnant come fully awake before it is too late.
In closing, I want to personally thank all of you who support this end-time ministry in so many ways. May God bless you greatly. We continue to invite you to send your prayer requests, and we will give them individual attention. Grace and peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus.

Special Flash News Update: The Rising False Prophet of Antichrist!
This issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter was completed on Saturday, April 16th, 2005. I am writing this update because of the breaking news regarding the election of the new Pope Benedict XVI on Tuesday, April 19th, 2005. There are so many signs of antichrist surrounding the rise of this new pope, and I will reveal many of them with this writing.
Just after the death of Pope John Paul II, I was looking at a news report which listed possible and likely successors to the papal throne. As I sought the Lord in prayer and looked at the list, I saw the name of Joseph Ratzinger lift off the page as it was suspended above the other names. I knew the Lord was showing me that this man would be the next Pope. This happened at the beginning of April, and I began immediately to warn people in my preaching and recorded messages to watch out for Joseph Ratzinger!
On April 19th, 2005, 13 days before the witches’ high cross-quarter sabat of Beltaine, Joseph Ratzinger was elected Pope. As countless thousands waited outside watching the special chimney above the Sistine Chapel for the sign of white smoke, a problem developed. They couldn’t get the “sacred fire” started and when they finally did, the smoke would not go up the chimney but filled the Sistine Chapel instead. (4) Finally, the signal was sent and the multitudes began to cheer. The 265th pope had been elected, and 2+6+5= 13 in occult numerology. We also know that the voting for the new pope began on the 18th of April, which is three 6’s. Does this new Pope fit the profile of Revelation, chapter 13?
The name Ratzinger also began to intrigue me. I had studied the German language for eight semesters while in school and was nominated by my instructor to receive the gold medal for German language studies. I did a search of dictionaries and Catholic resources such as the Independent Catholic News (2), and I found that the true and original spelling for Ratzinger is not with the letter “Z” but with the letter “S”. (1) Thus, the true way to spell his name is Ratsinger. When we apply the alpha-numeric code of A=6, B=12, C=18 and so on, we find that the name Ratsinger adds up as follows: R=108, A=6, T=120, S=114, I=54, N=84, G=42, E=30, R=108 for a total of 666.
This new Pope, Joseph Ratsinger, was born in Marktl am Inn in Bavaria, Germany. (1) We must remember that Bavaria is the birthplace of the Illuminati itself, and Marktl makes one think of the Mark of the Beast. Ratsinger was in the Hiltler Youth and later became a Nazi soldier in the Wehrmacht in November, 1944. (1) Ratsinger rose quickly through the ranks of Catholicism after he attended seminary, and on November 25, 1981, Pope John Paul II named Ratsinger Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which was formerly known as the Holy Office of the Inquisition! (1)
Ratsinger, the former Nazi, has always been the tyrant-type, and he was known in Vatican circles as the Enforcer, (3) a name usually associated with the mob underworld. He is also known as God’s Rottweiler, (3) referring to the tenacious breed of dog by that name. With that in mind, Ratsinger stated that his prime objective as Pope is to unify all the religions and to especially unify the youth. The new Pope plans to go to Germany for German Youth Day. (3) Perhaps it is reminiscent of his days in the Hitler Youth.
Joseph Ratsinger is to be inaugurated on Sunday, April 24th, 2005, (4) the day of the full moon and an eclipse of the moon. There are many other signs identifying this rising pope as an antichrist false prophet. I will have much to write about in my next newsletter and subsequent newsletters. Remember, Revelation 13:17-18 warns us as follows: “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man, and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
