America – A Nation Wandering In Darkness!
“Woe unto them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Co’-re. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.”Jude 1:11-13
“These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved forever. For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.”II Peter 2:17-19
“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.”Amos 8:11-12
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will once again look at our troubled world in the sure and certain light of Bible prophecy. As the year of 2005 draws to a close and the new year of 2006 rapidly approaches, we know that amazing things are about to happen. The Almighty Saviour has given us many signs of His coming during the year of 2005 and of His consternation regarding the sinful state of our nation and the world. The earth continues to tremble, and while the hurricanes and tornadoes rage, the polar ice caps continue melting, and strange fireballs are seen racing through the skies in various parts of the world. The people descend ever deeper into spiritual darkness. Witchcraft, homosexuality, Satanism, sorcery, and every kind of social distemper is now in full public view, but so few people are crying out to Almighty God about it.
The people of the United States, especially, have become creatures of the night and of the darkness as they accept the ways of evil as a natural changing of the times. That which was once considered to be abominable by general consensus is now accepted as normal societal behavior. Churches have adjusted themselves to accept new age thinking and have become acclimated to witchcraft itself.
The above verses of Scripture clearly warn us that the time would come when gross spiritual darkness would spread out over our land like a shroud of death, and that people would wander as it were from sea to shining sea trying to find the true word of God preached, and they would not find it. Those days of famine for hearing the words of the Lord are truly upon us. The good news, however, is that God still watches over His small remnant and works miracles for them. We do touch Heaven, and our prayers are heard and answered. If you will call out to the Saviour, He will hear you and save you to the uttermost. Final warnings are on their way, and so little time is left. Do not wait until the last minute, because none of us know which minute will be our last.
Distress of Nations with Perplexity!
One of the great signs of the coming of the Saviour and the end of this present world is the general distress of the nations with perplexity. That word perplexity, as found in Luke 21:25, comes from the Greek word aporia, which means unable to find a way out. The nations are truly perplexed and are looking for an answer man and not the true Saviour who is Jesus Christ. In John 5:43 Jesus predicted this would happen as follows: “I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.” The continual cry is for a one-world government, but who will lead it? We have organizations such as the United Nations, the State of the World Forum, the Club of Rome, the Council on Foreign Relations and others that are trying to unite the world, but who will take control and lead such a global government? It is all the work of Satan, who desires to inhabit a man and rule the earth. We are now seeing one intrigue after another as the nations are being realigned by wars and social engineering to produce a global governance of an antichrist.
Recently, the New York Daily News featured a two-word headline which read “Darkest Days.” The subsequent story was about the failing presidency of George W. Bush. (1) With over two thousand U.S. military personnel fallen dead on Iraqi soil and countless thousands wounded and permanently disabled, more and more people are waking up and beginning to realize the heavy cost of listening to a man that shamelessly lied to his own country and to the world. Highly respected U.S. military experts are also saying that the Iraqi War cannot be won, and even former President Jimmy Carter recently stated, “The Bush Administration’s prewar claims that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction were manipulated at least to mislead the American people.” (2)
It should be easily understood by now that President Bush is a stooge and tool of the Illuminati, even though he was passed off as a Christian to undiscerning, nominal “Christians” by his crafty and skillful public relations team. Recently, President Bush was speaking at a roundtable interview in the Roosevelt Room of the White House. When the topic came up about the CIA and information leaks, the President laughed and then explained his laughter by saying, “Inside joke here, for my team.” (3)
Military intelligence is hardly a joke, however, and it is a sad fact that a full twenty-five percent of our military vets are sick when they return from Iraq. They are physically and sometimes mentally disabled. (4) Taking both Gulf Wars into account, it is also a sad fact that more than 518,000 veterans are on medical disability even though only 7,039 were wounded in combat. The problem is radiation sickness from the ammunition used by U.S. forces made with depleted uranium, which is radioactive and has a half-life of 4.5 billion years. (5) Perhaps that also explains why so many Iraqi children are being born without arms, legs, or eyes. This is also affecting the children being born to our returning veterans. For example, in just the state of Missouri alone, sixty-seven percent of Gulf War vets’ babies were born with serious defects. (6) We must also note that the World Health Organization announced that global cancer will increase by fifty percent in the next fifteen years. (7)
Many nations are in distress, and recently France has seen a firestorm of Molotov cocktails and other incendiary bombs as angry mobs of Muslims torch thousands of vehicles and buildings throughout that nation, prompting the declaration of a national state of emergency. (8) Could there be such an uprising in the streets of the cities here in the United States? We must remember that over 130 years ago, the infamous Freemason and Illuminist Albert Pike wrote to the Italian Illuminist Giuseppi Mazzini that there would be three world wars, and the third world war would be fomented by strife between United Christendom and the Moslem world. These are the very conditions of our day.
There is now much talk about the use of nuclear weapons, which could quickly start a world war. Australian newspapers, such as the Melbourne Herald Sun, have been publishing stories about North Korea’s persistence in developing nuclear weapons. (9) With that in mind, we must also consider a recent document drafted by the Pentagon’s joint staff, which calls for the use of nuclear weapons in strikes against state and non-state adversaries. The document calls for preventive or first strikes and is called the Doctrine for Joint Nuclear Operations. It was dated on the Ides of March or March 15, 2005. (10) Watch North Korea, as it is one of the Kings of the East and is currently being eyed as a target by the United States.
Another nuclear hot spot is Iran! The European Union has called upon the U.N. Security Council to put sanctions on Iran. Meanwhile, the United States has made direct accusations against Iran insisting that the Iranians are making nuclear bombs. (11) To further complicate the problem, Iran’s President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, stated that the state of Israel should be wiped off the map. (12) In addition to that, Iran has now launched a satellite which is designed to spy on the Israeli state. The Russian-made satellite is called Sina-1, and it orbits the earth fourteen times per day from an altitude of six hundred miles. (13) It is quite clear that trouble is brewing and that the entire Middle East is a powder keg waiting for someone to set the spark off. All of this was foretold long ago in the Scripture, and these are the days of the fulfillment of all those things that have not yet come to pass.
While I am on the subject of spying and surveillance, I must mention that the people of the United States are being spied upon continually and in many ways. Recently, PC World Magazine discovered that the Xerox company, and no doubt other companies as well, are working with the U.S. Government and have built a secret tracking code into color printers. The tracking code clearly identifies every printed document and ties it to the machine that printed it. The process involves a series of invisible dots that appear as a unique and exclusive code that appears under a blue light. If your color printer is thus equipped, every document that you print can be traced directly to you and your printer. (14)
Another spy device has been recently developed by the Honeywell Corporation, and it is a hovering drone device that carries video cameras and other sensors. It is currently being tested in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The drone spy device has already flown over two hundred times successfully, and it can stay in the air on its battery power for about an hour at a time. The micro air vehicle (as it is called) interfaces with global positioning satellites and is designed for urban spying and is especially effective as a tool for civilian law enforcement. The flying and hovering drone that will be watching you has been given the name “Dragon Eye” by its manufacturer. (15) We must remember that since the Illuminati’s official beginning on May 1st, 1776, which is the witches’ high cross-quarter sabat of Beltaine, the symbol of the Illuminati has been the Egyptian Utchat, or all-seeing eye of Horus, as it appears above the truncated pyramid on the back of the United States one dollar bill!
Are these truly the last days and the time of the rising of many antichrists who will lead to an ultimate and final antichrist? In Mid-October, former President Bill Clinton gave an oration in certain major Canadian cities: Toronto, London, and Calgary to be exact. The disgraced former President was greeted with a hero’s welcome as he delivered his speech entitled “The Power Within.” In his speech, Clinton called for an end to child poverty and terrorism by embracing all of the world’s religions which he hopes to unify. His exact words regarding that were: “I hope to help create more of a global conscience.” Those who heard Clinton speak said that he had “an almost hypnotic personal charisma”, and many said that he is destined to be the next Secretary-General of the United Nations. (16) Clinton also has the backing of the infamous Canadian billionaire and arch-illuminist Maurice Strong. Clinton is also supported by former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, who now is the head of the State of the World Forum with his office at the Presidio in San Francisco, California. I was there at San Francisco and saw that office of infamy. Gorbachev, Strong, and Clinton also embrace the United Nations’ Earth Charter, which dictates the replacement of all the religions of the world with pantheistic nature worship, which also calls for the management of all humanity, including forced sterilization and abortion. Thankfully, we know that the Almighty has the last word, and our Lord Jesus promised us that He would be with us alway, even unto the end of the world. We know that our Good Shepherd loves us, and if we love Him, that love will cast out all fear.
Illuminized Management of the Human Body!
We know that one of the chief objectives of the masterminds of the Illuminati’s great conspiracy is to reduce the world’s population to a manageable level. High-ranking Illuminists of the past such as Bertrand Russell, H.G. Wells, and George Bernard Shaw all recommended the creation of at least one massive disease pandemic per generation to reduce the population. Bertrand Russell once stated that the disappointing thing about war is that it did not kill enough people. Here let it be noted that good-minded people always find it hard to believe that anyone in high places of power could be so vile, evil, and rotten and have such utter disregard for human life. That disbelief on the part of optimistic people is the very thing that keeps these children and stooges of Satan going. Indeed, they are a dirty bunch; and that is because their father, the devil, is a murderer and the father of lies.
We are now hearing about the danger of an avian influenza with the potential of killing countless millions of people world-wide. It has now been announced that this virus has infected ducks, geese and other migrating waterfowl in Canada just in time for them to fly south into the United States for the winter. (17) Without a doubt, this flu virus was manufactured in a laboratory and planted among waterfowl so that the migration of the waterfowl would carry it far and wide throughout the world. It is a designer virus and was engineered to scramble the DNA of cells and to mutate them to be able to be transmitted from birds to humans and then from one human to another.
This new influenza has caused such fear that the medicine known as Tamiflu is now the most sought after drug in the world. (18) We know that President George W. Bush has been preaching about the danger of this flu and has appropriated 7.1 billion dollars to fight it. This simply means that he has taken that vast amount of money and handed it over to the illuministic drug companies. Here let it be noted that the Health Ministry in Japan has issued a warning that Tamiflu causes abnormal behavior and hallucinations. (19)
Who stands to gain windfall profits from the sale of the Tamiflu drug that people are now clamoring after? On January 3rd, 1997, Donald Rumsfeld was named chairman of Gilead Sciences, Inc., the owners of Tamiflu. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is no longer chairman of that company, but he still owns up to 25,000,000 dollars worth of its stock. (20) Have you detected a stench yet? Another fact that amplifies that stench is that the Pentagon, which is controlled by Rumsfeld, purchased 58,000,000 dollars worth of Tamiflu in July, 2005. (21)
Another strange thing happened recently in Baytown, Texas, regarding flu shots. Approximately one thousand Exxon-Mobil employees were given fake flu shots at a health fair in the corporation’s Baytown complex. The company is now providing free blood tests and counseling to the one thousand employees. Spokeswoman Jeanne Miller said that a doctor provided the shots and his name is being withheld. The United States Food and Drug Administration has also not revealed the contents of the syringes. In addition to that, the FBI refused to explain how they found out about the fraud. (22) In other words, nobody is talking, and it is all a big secret at this time.
Common sense should tell us that there is a potential danger when anyone injects a vaccine into your body. You really do not know what is in that syringe, and you can be sure that the doctor has not done a personal qualitative nor quantitative analysis either. We should also remember that many of the vaccines contain a preservative called thimerisol, which introduces mercury into the bloodstream. With that in mind, we should also know that over thirty percent of pediatricians nation-wide said they would fire families and refuse to treat them at all if they refused one or more childhood vaccinations. (23)
Another question that comes to mind is: If the illuminists are determined to reduce the population of the world, would they purposely sabotage the health of people by cleverly introducing harmful substances into the food and water supplies? We know that research laboratories have long used a substance called alloxin, which is given to laboratory animals to shut down their pancreas and prevent the production of insulin. Why is this same substance used to help bleach white flour and make it whiter? (24) Why is there such an epidemic of diabetes in America? How many people are consuming large amounts of bleached white flour and shutting down the beta cells of their pancreases?
Alloxin is not the only problem. Recent reports by the Environmental Working Group revealed that there is so much pollution in the United States that babies are being born polluted. Researchers have found an average of over two hundred contaminants in the blood of babies according to New York Democratic Representative Louise Slaughter. The report says that American babies in the womb are sleeping in a cocktail of Teflon, mercury, fire retardants, and pesticides. (25) As a student of chemistry, I know that Teflon is polytetraflouroethene or PTFE and is highly dangerous when heated, especially at high temperatures. When I consider all of this, I am made to remember Amos 7:17 which says, “Therefore thus saith the Lord; Thy wife shall be an harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy land shall be divided by line; and thou shalt die in a polluted land…..”
When I consider this verse, I am also reminded of a recent report issued by the Associated Press that reveals the shocking fact that more than one million people in the United States are now carrying the HIV virus that causes AIDS. (26) When we factor in the various other sexually-transmitted diseases, we begin to realize that we have an epidemic caused and perpetuated by spirits of unbridled sexual lust, which produces an addiction that rivals any drug.
The HIV virus is transmitted in ways other than sexual activity. On May 31st, 2005, the Canadian Red Cross pleaded guilty to distributing contaminated blood, infecting thousands of Canadians with HIV and hepatitis C. Over three thousand people have died from this, and more than one thousand HIV cases and twenty thousand hepatitis C cases have developed. The head of the Red Cross in Canada, Dr. Pierre Duplessis, has apologized to the victims and their families, and the Red Cross of Canada has been fined five thousand dollars. (27)
One of the great signs of the time of the end of this present world is the spiritual depravity that has now saturated our world. This was foretold in II Timothy 3:1-5 as follows: “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
We receive many letters from people from all over the United States who cannot find a church and are wondering if I know of one in their area. My heart aches for these people, and I am sad to say that I know of very few churches that are not contaminated with witchcraft, illuminism, or some form of idolatry. One man recently wrote to me as follows: “I go to a church that claims to, and has a reputation for being alive, but is full of showmanship, clever tactics, and creativity; playing Madonna and Foreigner audio during services, and the like. I have been teaching Sunday School for over two years now, using a curriculum that is dazzling, competing with MTV and VH1, complete with props from “Survivor”, Bill Murray movies and such, and I am so sick of these tactics.”
The above is so typical of what is happening in churches in these days of the great falling away. Where are the churches that preach the everlasting Gospel? Where are the warnings to repent and flee from idolatry? We do not need entertainment committees in churches sponsoring rock music, ventriloquists, and magicians. Churches should be places where spiritual battles are fought and won, and where lives are forever transformed by the power of the blood of Jesus Christ. Our nation is sick unto death, because the professing “Christian” churches are sick unto death! Most of these theater churches don’t even have the true Bible, which in the English language is the Authorized King James Bible. Is it any wonder why their fruit is corrupt?
How bad is it in our so-called “Christian” nation, and how much worse can it become? At the end of October, 2005, the U.S. Government reported that there were nearly 1.5 million babies born to unmarried women in the United States last year. (28) I believe it is the parents who are illegitimate, and there are two of them for every baby. Fornication is a serious sin, and it is one of the four sins which the people of the last days refuse to repent of as listed in Revelation 9:21. That Scripture verse says, “Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”
The immoral American influence has reached around the world as well. In Red China there are two major brand names for condoms. One brand is named Clinton condoms and the other is named Lewinsky condoms. (29) We are also made to wonder why Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain would request a performance by Ozzy Osbourne, who is being billed as The Prince of Darkness. Osbourne responded to the invitation saying: ”I cannot turn down this incredible honor twice.” (30)
As it was in the days of Noah and as it was in the days of Sodom, corruption is rapidly reaching a saturation point. A full seventy percent of American television shows include sexual content. The average is five sex scenes per hour. (31) It is no doubt programming such as this that has contributed to public high schools needing to order so many condoms for their students. In New York City, 310,000 condoms were ordered for students in the past eighteen months. (32) We have also learned that major universities, such as the Iowa State University, are offering courses in gender studies such as Women’s Studies 205X: Introduction to Queer Studies. The course includes lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, politics, philosophy, literature, and relationships. (33)
A World-Wide Pandemic of Witchcraft!
I have often written sections in my newsletter condemning witchcraft, because it is highly dangerous and is so pervasive that it has taken over American society. Witchcraft is not just incantations, spells, potions, and magic. It is also a way of thinking, a philosophy, and a mindset. People who are involved in it seem to see nothing wrong with it. I recently received an e-mail from a witch who was sincerely asking me a question as follows: “I am a good man. I have problems of course. I am far from perfect. How long have you been out of this? Do you know how dark and terrible things are right now? You don’t mention of course a family site and all but on Halloween I was drug to an orgy of a coven; is that right?” Witches can never accurately discern right from wrong. This is the very condition of American society in general at this very time.
Recently, Hurricane Wilma interrupted a major witchcraft event in Key West, Florida. The event was Fantasy Fest, and it was to include some of the most decadent, immoral, and occultic Halloween activities imaginable during the ten days leading up to Halloween. The organizers of the event brazenly stated, “We will not back down in the face of a hurricane!” (34) Then, along came Hurricane Wilma, which intensified from only a tropical storm to a major hurricane almost overnight. Hurricane Wilma did interrupt their abominable event! Halloween 2005 was very significant to witches, because the planet Mars was at such a close proximity to the earth, and that happens once every thirteen years.
One major retailer that is doing much to promote witchcraft is Wal-Mart. One hundred items of witchcraft can be found in the Wal-Mart stores, including the following occult books: The Everything Wicca and Witchcraft Book: Unlock the Secrets of Ancient Rituals, Spells, Blessings and Sacred Objects; The Witch Book: The Encyclopedia of Witchcraft, Wicca, and Neo-Paganism; Wicca for Beginners, The Witch Next Door: Separating Fact from Fiction about Witchcraft, Wicca, Goddess Worship, and Neo-Paganism; The Wicca Bible: The Definitive Guide to Magic and the Craft; and Wicca and Witchcraft for Dummies. (35)
Witchcraft is the new age way of thinking and involves almost every aspect and endeavor of life in these last days. That is how near we are to our Lord’s return. Even the price of first class stamps is rising to 39 cents in the early part of 2006. (36) The number thirty-nine is the coven number of triumviral power or the power of three.
What does President Bush think about witchcraft? That subject came up in 1999 when the officials at Arlington National Cemetery refused to allow the headstone of Pfc Abraham Kooiman, located at gravesite 2861, row O, section 54, to have a pentacle put on it. It was a witch’s grave, and the family was fighting for that symbol to be placed on that marker. When George Bush was asked about it he told ABC News, “I don’t think that witchcraft is a religion. I wish the military would rethink this decision.” (37)
I have in front of me a page from the Lutheran Link, and on page six there is a story entitled, “The Boy Who Lived: A Pastor’s Defense for the Magical World of Harry Potter.” The author of the story is Pastor Scott R. Howard, who is pictured sitting at his desk wearing his clerical garments, including his clergy collar. He is also wearing a pointed hat and holding a wand in his hand and saying, “Hmmmm. It’s time to ‘conjure up’ my next sermon.” (38) This is no joke. He is seriously defending the Harry Potter witchcraft.
There is also clandestine witchcraft in the medical industry. The New York Daily News reported on October 8th, 2005, that the district attorney for Brooklyn is investigating the illicit theft and sale of bones and other body parts carved from fresh corpses at funeral homes. (39) An anonymous dentist stated that “one ounce of processed bone for dental implants costs more than an ounce of gold.” Other products made from human body parts are: AlloDerm, used for plastic surgery, burn and periodontal procedures; Repliform, used for gynecological and urological surgical procedures; and GraftJacket, used for orthopedic applications and low extremity wounds. (40)
With all of the witchcraft going on, is it any wonder that there have been continual significant earthquakes, including 327 of them in the past thirty days? (41) These are indeed strange times, and fireballs have been seen racing through the skies all over the world, especially over Germany. (42) As the powers of antichrist rise up to occupy old earthly Jerusalem, it is interesting to note that the latitude of that city is 31°, 47’, 00 N and the longitude is 35°, 13’, 00 E. If we add 3147.00 and 3513.00 the total is 6660.00 which is the numerological position of old Jerusalem on planet Earth. Time is short! Reach out to the Saviour now while you still can!
In closing, I want to continue to urge everyone to keep praying because the prayer of faith is always heard in Heaven. Thanks to all of you who pray for us and support this end-time ministry. We invite you to send in your prayer requests as they do receive individual attention. Grace and peace be multiplied unto you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
