America in Dark Shadows Cast by False Light!
“The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!”Matthew 6:22-23
“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness: whose end shall be according to their works.”II Corinthians 11:13-15
“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”John 3:19-21
In this issue of the Last Trumpet, we will prayerfully use our God-given discernment as we apply the true light of God’s Word to the shocking and amazing current events that are constantly arising in these last days. As we watch the ever-increasing crescendo of evil in every facet and endeavor of society, business, government, education, and religion; we are made to wonder how so many people can be oblivious to the obvious. Even the slightest glance at any of these areas of activities would send a clarion signal that something is drastically wrong! There was a time in our country when there was character and a basic sense of decency. There was pride of workmanship and a general disdain for everything that is dishonest. Most people worked hard and the family unit was valued and respected. But something has gone terribly wrong with our nation.
In the 1960’s everything began to change. A new kind of music began to emerge. Witchcraft began to be glorified with television programs such as Bewitched. Hippies began to set a new trend as men began to wear long hair and tie-dyed shirts. Marijuana and LSD became popular, and a spirit of communism and rebellion filled our nation from New York City to San Francisco. Scott Mackenzie wrote about this strange spirit of witchcraft in his hit song “San Francisco”, which contains the following words: “All across the nation, such a strange vibration, people in motion; people in motion. There’s a whole generation, with a new explanation, people in motion; people in motion.” In witchcraft terminology, the words people in motion refer to people who react to being under a spell.
With all of the new music, including the British invasion of music by the Beatles and numerous others, an entire generation of youth was being initiated into a new age of dark luciferian light. This light of Lucifer would proceed to cast many grotesque shadows over our nation, and it does so to this day. This is the new age of modified communism that Pete Seeger used to sing about in Washington Square Park and at Union Square in New York City. Our nation has become the product of that spiritual molding and shaping that began during that 1960’s decade of revolution. The dark light of Lucifer now shines over our land, and the people are reacting to it accordingly. People everywhere, especially with the help of mainstream “Christian” churches, have been and are being prepared to accept an antichrist, and they don’t even have a clue as to what is happening to them. Our only hope is the true Lord Jesus Christ. Give your heart to Him now and repent before time is gone and regret prevails for eternity.
World War III Rising in the East!
The Middle East continues to fester with hatred as the coming of our Savior draws ever closer, and there are both wars and rumors of wars just as the Lord Jesus said there would be in Matthew, chapter 24, and Luke, chapter 21. The bloody turmoil grows continually worse as Iraq is now in a civil war. We are continually seeing news headlines such as: “Savage slaughter in Iraq; thirty beheaded bodies found.” (1) This senseless war has been and remains the passion of President George W. Bush and his oil-obsessed co-conspirators. We have now learned from a mainstream British newspaper that President Bush fully intends to start a nuclear war with Iran! Seymour Hersh, an investigative writer with close ties to the Pentagon, reported to the London Daily Telegraph that President Bush refers to Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, the leader of Iran, as the “new Hitler.” Hersh also reported that even though U.S. military chiefs at the Pentagon have urged President Bush to not use nuclear weapons against Iran, President Bush is determined to do so! (2)
In Iraq a mysterious new building project is underway. It is a new United States Embassy, and it’s like none other that was ever built. It is a fortress-like compound rising beside the Tigris River, and it is the same size as the Vatican City. It has its own defense force and power and water plants, and it consists of twenty-one buildings. All of this is being built on 104 acres of land and will serve as the United States power center in the Middle East. The complex will have 5,500 employees. This Embassy Baghdad is ten times larger than any other modern United States Embassy, and the Bush Administration induced the interim Iraqi Government to transfer ownership of this tract of land to the United States. A large contingent of U.S. Marines will be stationed at the embassy to protect it. It should also be noted that this complex is six times larger than the United Nations’ complex in New York City, and the cost is one billion dollars to build it. The complex is far more elaborate than any palace the king of Babylon could have imagined. The swimming pool, gym, commissary, food court, and the American Club are facilities that are second to none. (3)
The Bush Administration has now unveiled a new blueprint for a nuclear bomb manufacturing facility, and a plan to build 125 nuclear bombs per year. The elaborate new facility will also be able to design and produce a nuclear bomb within four hours if necessary. The cost of the new bomb-producing facility is 25,000,000,000 dollars. (4)
On March 30th, 2006, the U.S. military announced that it intends to detonate a seven hundred ton bomb in a test that will send a mushroom cloud over Las Vegas, Nevada. The test is to take place during the first week of June at the Nevada test range. And the Russians have been notified. The military also said that they are making sure that Las Vegas understands. (5) Don’t worry Las Vegas, what could possibly go wrong?
As Iran watches all of this activity by the United States, the reaction has been stern and definite. Iranian President Mahmoud Madinejad has publicly vowed that the West will suffer more than his country. (6) He also specifically threatened the United States with harm and pain if his country is attacked. Madinejad’s exact words were, “But the United States is also susceptible to harm and pain. So if that is the path that the U.S. wishes to choose, let the ball roll.” (7) It should also be noted that both Russia and China issued statements of opposition to any sanctions against Iran. This happened on March 31st, 2006, at a meeting in Berlin, Germany. (8) And apparently, France seems to know that something is going on as Jacques Chirac announced a nuclear upgrade in his country. France now has nuclear bombs that can be fired at a high altitude to create an electromagnetic ompulsion to destroy an enemy’s computer and communications systems. (9)
In Iran, two hundred Iranians volunteered for martyrdom missions against the United States and Britain. As they chanted, “Death to America”, the two hundred signed a document called Registration form for martyrdom-seeking operations. One masked volunteer named Ali told reporters, “We will give a good lesson to those who dare to attack our country.” Ali said he remained masked so he would not be recognized when traveling abroad to harm American and British interests. (10)
Iran has also been engaging in “war games” in the Persian Gulf under the command of Rear-Admiral Mostafa Safari. (11) The Iranians have successfully tested their Fajr-3 missile, which can avoid radar and hit several targets simultaneously using multiple warheads. They have also successfully tested a new torpedo called the hoot or whale, which has radar-evading technology and moves through water at 223 miles per hour and is too fast to evade. It is powerful enough to completely destroy the largest submarines. (12) Iran is also testing an electromagnetic pulse weapon that could be detonated over the United States at an altitude of 60 to 500 kilometers and would knock out electrical power and circuit boards nation-wide and thus make the United States’ domestic communications inoperative. This could be accomplished with a single bomb. (13)
As I consider all of this trouble with Iran and the whole volatile situation in the Middle East, I am reminded of many Scripture verses. One example is Revelation 8:10-11 which reads as follows: “And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters. And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.”
In the above verses, we read of a star falling from heaven that poisons one-third of the waters. The word for star in the original Greek is aster, and it is used in conjunction with the word stronnumi from which we get the word astronomy. The word stronnumi literally means to strew or scatter. The Greek word for wormwood means bitterness or calamity. Taking this one step further, the Hebrew word for star is kohawb and is used in conjunction with kawvaw, which means to penetrate, blister, or burn. The word kohawb is also used in conjunction with the Hebrew word kab bone, which means to pile up. With all of that in mind, we must take into consideration that the primary medium range ballistic missile developed and tested by the Iranians is called the Shabab-3, which means shooting star. (14) We are made to wonder in the light of Bible prophecy, if this Iranian shooting star with a nuclear warhead could come down from the sky causing penetration, blistering and burning, and a great pile-up of debris, which is strewn and scattered, thus causing calamity while making the waters bitter and poisonous with radioactivity. Time will tell and only God can help us.
America Invaded by Aliens!
On Tuesday, April 11th, 2006, page eight of the New York Post featured a story with the headline “Alien Invasion!” It went on to say: Thousands march on City Hall. An estimated 120,000 people, who were mostly illegal Hispanic aliens, carried signs of protest along with their native flags intermingled with a few American flags and marched south from Washington Square to City Hall. (15) Here let it be noted that Washington Square was the sight of many Communist activities during the 1960’s. Now, Hillary Clinton and Ted Kennedy are fully backing this revolution, and Hillary told the cheering crowd, “Your faces are the faces of America. You are the people who take care of our children, work in construction and landscaping, restaurants and hotels. You are the faces of those who give us a good day’s work, and often not for a fair day’s pay.” (16) Hillary seems to love this sort of situation, and it no doubt brings back memories to her of when she was a wild protesting Communist hippie during the 1960’s.
Many other large protests were also happening in all of our major cities, and nearly 500,000 gathered at Los Angeles, California. Most American people really do not know what this is all about or what is soon to happen in our land. This is the beginning of a planned revolution as blueprinted and orchestrated by the masterminds of the Illuminati Great Conspiracy. Before I continue with this thought, I must first point out that it would be both unscriptural and intellectually dishonest to condemn an entire race of people. There are some honest Hispanic people and those of other races who have entered this country legally and have followed proper procedure. There are those who are productive, honest, and most importantly, good Christians. But there are some thirteen million who have broken the law and have made a mockery of proper procedure by crossing our borders as violators. These are the ones who are now rabble-rousing in our streets. Many of these people were felons back where they came from and some were not. One simple and provable fact is that everywhere the illegal aliens congregate, the crime rate goes up exponentially. These include violent crimes of rape and murder. It has been noted that many of the Hispanic women are raped by their own racial brethren, but because of their illegal alien status, the women are afraid to report the crime for fear that they will be deported. What is really happening here?
The plan is simple. The Illuminists need a revolution in the United States to produce instability and a social cataclysm that will change everything forever and bring forth a quantum leap into a new world order. We know that the U.S. Government purposely allowed many millions of illegal aliens to enter the country and settle in. Once the number reached 13,000,000, our Congress began to move against them with laws that threaten to make them felons and to face deportation. It was understood in advance that there would be a massive uprising which would start as peaceful protests and eventually become violent riots. Remember the 1960’s riots and organizations such as the Student for Democratic Society (SDS), the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), the Congress on Racial Equality (CORE), the Weathermen, the Black Panthers, the Thirteen-Thirteen in Chicago (1313), and many other such Communist and subversive groups. It is all starting again, and this time our anemic nation will be hard-pressed to survive it.
At this point I must say that the Hispanic uprising is not loosely knit, and it is not just millions of people randomly protesting. This massive bloc of people is being driven by an organization with a Communist agenda. That organization is called Partido Nacional La Raza Unida, which means the United Race National Party. Their headquarters is at P.O. Box 13, San Fernando, California. (17) Their platform is simple: they are a political party of workers who plan to take complete control of much of the Southern United States. We must remember that Vladimir Lenin referred to his Communist party as a movement of the workers. Adolph Hitler called his party the Nazi party, which is an acronym for Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiter-Partei, which means the National Socialist German Workers Party. It was always a movement of the workers that brought revolution and a new government to a nation.
It must also be noted that the official platform published by La Raza includes the following statement: “We see no human being as illegal. Those who have arrived in the U.S. with heritage indigenous to the Americas, and specifically those crossing the southern border, are migrants to their own continent. (18)
These are the days of rebellion and revolution, and all of this is in perfect harmony with the timing of astrology and witchcraft. We have now learned that another major protest is being planned for May 1st, which is the witches’ high cross-quarter sabat of Beltaine. May 1st is also the Communist holiday of revolutionary takeover. A large protest is planned for New York City and is to begin at Union Square, which was always the traditional gathering place of Communists in the 1960’s. The announcement for the May Day rally was made on the 13th day of April, which is eighteen days before the witches’ sabat. This is a spiritual matter, and witches know that one of the seven demonic principalities, known as Medit’, is in charge of anarchy and rebellion and that this present time is when their god of war, Mars, is in its apex of power. As true Christians we must never fear these things, because we have power over them in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. In II Corinthians 10:3-5 we read as follows: “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”
The Sabotaged American Economy!
While we are being continually told that we are having great prosperity in the United States, I cannot help but remember the words of Arthur Sylvester, who was a Pentagon press agent during the Kennedy Administration. Sylvester said, “…..The government has the right to lie to the people.” We also remember the infamous words of the Communist Franklin D. Roosevelt who said, “In the government, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet that we planned it that way.”
On February 10th, 2006, the Associated Press reported that America’s trade deficit hit an all-time high of 725.8 billion dollars. This is an increase of 17.5 percent over the previous year. (19) The United States is deeply in debt to China, Japan, Europe, OPEC, Canada, and even Mexico and South America. (20) How could this happen? We know that one of the problems is that we have lost over three million manufacturing jobs in the United States since George W. Bush first took office. (21) On March 7th, 2006, the Washington Post reported that Treasury Secretary John Snow told Congress the following: “The Administration has now taken all prudent and legal actions, including tapping certain government retirement funds to keep from hitting the 8.2 trillion dollar national debt limit.” (22)
Clearly, the handwriting is on the wall, and our country is going broke as our dollars become worth less and less, and it takes more of them to buy anything. One prime example that is felt by everyone either directly or indirectly is the price of gasoline and other fuels. It now takes more than seventy of our United States dollars to buy one barrel of crude oil. The big oil companies are making a killing with the help of the oil-man President George W. Bush. Companies such as Exxon/Mobil are enjoying an 88% increase in net profit and have earned 36 billion dollars after expenses. (23) The second largest net profits were made by Chevron/Texaco with over seven billion in clear profit. This is the company that has strong ties with its former employee, Condoleezza Rice. In total, the five largest oil companies picked the pockets of the working people of America to the tune of sixty billion dollars in clear profit, and prices are expected to rise at the pumps to over four dollars per gallon. We also know that President Bush is pushing for the passage of House Resolution #6, which will give the oil industry an additional eleven billion dollars in tax breaks and another twelve billion dollars in subsidies. These figures have been all over the news so it is no secret. In fact, on April 16th, 2006, ABC News revealed that retiring Exxon Chairman Lee Raymond is receiving four hundred million dollars as a retirement package. (24) Meanwhile, the American people struggle under oppressively high prices.
Who owns and controls the wealth of the United States? The American people would be shocked to know the answer. Foreigners now own 1.53 trillion dollars worth of factories, office buildings, and investments. European nations control two-thirds of direct investments in the United States, and the Middle East controls 9.3 billion dollars worth of direct investment. Foreigners also own over half of the United States publicly traded debt, which is in excess of two trillion dollars. (25)
The United States dollar is in real trouble. It was once backed by gold, but by the gold standard, our United States dollar is so inflated already that it is ready to explode into hot air. Simple math would prove this. We know that the M3 report always listed the amount of United States dollars in the United States money supply. At the middle of February, the M3 reported that there were just over ten trillion dollars in circulation. The exact number was $10,236,300,000,000. If there are really 6,000 tons of gold in government vaults, we can divide the number of dollars by 6,000 tons of gold using troy measurement, and the result is $1,706,050,000 per ton. We then divide by 2,240, which is the number of pounds in a troy ton and the result is $761,629.46 per pound. We divide once again by 14.58, because that is how many troy ounces are in a pound, and we come up with the figure of $52,237.96 per ounce. In other words, if our United States dollars were backed 100% by gold, it would take 52,237.96 of those dollars to buy one ounce of gold. That is how far gone our dollar is at this present time, but most people never stop to think about it or make the connection.
Betrayal and Blasphemy in the Last Days!
The Bible makes it very clear that in the last days there would be a powerful and pervasive spirit of blasphemy. In Revelation 13, we read of this as follows: “And I stood upon 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.”
Never before has there been such a direct attack against true Christianity and the Scripture as we are now seeing. On April 7th it was announced that a lost gospel book has been found by an Arab peasant who was digging in an area in Upper Egypt. He stumbled on a red earthen jar containing 13 leather-bound papyrus books. These 13 books were written on both sides for a total of 13 plus 13 or 26 pages. These pages were translated into the Coptic language, and the publication is called the Gospel of Judas. (26) The story of this so-called “gospel” is one that glorifies Judas as the only true disciple who was ordained of the “greater god” for a special purpose for which he would be hated by the world. In one passage of this book, Jesus laughs at his disciples for praying to your god, referring to a lesser Old Testament God who created the world. The disciples then turn away when Jesus challenges them to look at him and understand him. Judas is then singled out several times for special status when Jesus supposedly said, “Step away from the others and I shall tell you the mysteries of the kingdom. It is possible for you to reach it, but you will grieve a great deal.” Jesus also tells Judas, “You will exceed all of them, for you will sacrifice the man that clothes me. You will be cursed by the other generations and you will come to rule over them.” (27)
What rank blasphemy! It is more than obvious to those with even a minuscule degree of discernment that it is the very voice and writing of Satan himself, and the context clearly reveals it. Who would be so evil as to publish such a book as this? The shocking answer is that it is being published by one of the most respected educational organizations. It is the National Geographic Society that purchased the manuscript for one million dollars. That same prestigious society has now declared the manuscript to be true and authentic. It does not surprise me that they would do this, because the National Geographic Society is one of the largest purveyors of evolution and other such false information. The National Geographic Society was started in 1888 on the 13th day of January by 33 men who were all Freemasons. The first president of the society was Gardiner Green Hubbard, and he was succeeded by his son-in-law, Alexander Graham Bell, who is famous for his invention of the telephone. (28)
As if the above is not bad enough, we have now learned that a Jesuit priest, who is now a university professor, believes he is divinely called to restore rightful honor to Satan. Dr. Henry Angsmar Kelly says, “Satan is the most maligned figure in history and has endured 17 centuries of unjustified character assassination.” The University of California professor went on to say, “In the Bible, Satan works for God; he is his prime minister or attorney-general, in charge of policing the world. He is one of God’s angels, and his job is to test people.” (29)
It is a sad fact that millions of professing “Christians” are so far gone in their departure from truth and discernment and are so ignorant of the true Word of God that they will buy into such blasphemous lies that have been hatched out of the depths of hell! Will the Almighty wait much longer to bring final judgment on this reprobate nation and the world? I don’t think so!
Hollywood and the movie industry continue to produce films that insult Heaven and our gracious Savior. A movie soon to be released is the Da Vinci Code. The premise of the movie, which is based on the best-selling book by the same title, is that Christian doctrine is all wrong. The story says that a secret code reveals that Jesus had a physical child by Mary Magdalene and produced a holy blood line and grail that was to continue on down through time until the end. The Knights Templar are supposedly the guardians of the holy blood and holy grail, or cup of sacrifice. (30) We can see the obvious connection with Freemasonry! Here let it be noted that the Cannes Film Festival release date of the Da Vinci Code is the 18th day of May, 2006. In occult numerology, the number 18 is three sixes or 666, which is the number of the Beast! The general release date of this movie is May 19th, which is 18 days before 06/06/06, or June 6th, 2006. That date of 06/06/06 is exactly 222 days after the Muslim riots started in France in 2005, and exactly 444 days after the second anniversary of the United States invasion of Iraq. When we add those numbers together, we have another 666. The date 06/06/06 is also exactly six years before the next transit of Venus across the face of the sun on June 6th, 2012, which is the day the witchcraft calendar ends. Is all of this coincidence?
The only true opposition to witchcraft in its many forms is the genuine Christian remnant. Mainstream Christianity is twice dead and plucked up by the roots. (Jude, verse 12) Traditionalist and fundamentalist “Christians” are still attacking me regarding C.S. Lewis, because I maintain that he was a witch to his dying day, which happens to be the day that President Kennedy was assassinated. Lewis is purported to be a great Christian author, but he was not a good man. In a well-documented book entitled C.S. Lewis, The Boy Who Chronicled Narnia by Michael White and published by Time Warner, we find the following facts: Clive Staples Lewis was a well-recognized “Christian” author by the year 1939, but he was living with a married woman and had been doing so for twenty years. The name of his semi-secret mistress was Janie Moore. He admitted this in his own signed letters, including photographs of them together. In archived letters, Lewis wrote that he was addicted to sexual self-gratification and swimming naked and had dark inner drives involving sadism and even wrote a discourse on whipping and spanking. He referred to himself as a Philomastrix, or master of the whip. He also spent a lot of time in the pub drinking with the man who supposedly converted him, J.R.R. Tolkien. (31)
The attacks upon true Christianity are numerous in these last days. Some are deceptive but they are becoming more direct. On March 30th, a report was published by Reuters News Service regarding a study that was done on 1800 cardiac patients. The results of the study was published by one of the authors of it, namely, the “Rev.” Dean Marek, director of chaplain services at the Mayo Clinic. The published results basically stated that intercessory prayer had no effect! (32) I must say that they came along too late to tell me that. I have seen miracles of healing, including cardiac problems.
One example happened a number of years ago when a family with whom I was having Bible studies called me to the hospital in Waupun, Wisconsin, because their elderly father had suffered a massive heart attack and was given no hope. When I arrived, he was in intensive care and hooked up to an EKG machine, which showed a very irregular heartbeat which they expected to “flat-line” at any moment. The damage to his heart was massive. I went in feeling helpless but was trusting in the Lord. A nurse was present and was watching the EKG machine when I applied a few drops of anointing oil to the unconscious man’s forehead. It was the shortest prayer that I ever prayed and I’ll never forget it. All that I had time to say was Jesus, and the nurse gasped and said, “Look!” The EKG instantly returned to a normal health pattern, and the elderly man opened his eyes and talked to me. It was a Friday when all of this happened, and I called the man’s wife at their farm home the following Monday. I asked his wife, “How is Harley doing?” She said, “I guess he’s alright; he’s out working in the field!” Praise God!
In closing I want to encourage everyone who is reading this newsletter to ask, seek, and knock; and you will find that Almighty God does hear and answer prayer. He will save you to the uttermost! I also encourage you to send your prayer requests to us, and we will give each one individual attention. I also want to thank all of you who support this end-time ministry in so many ways. God bless you exceedingly! Please keep us in prayer. In the next issue, we will look at more of the signs in the earth and in the heavens. Grace and peace be multiplied unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
