America - Land of Spiritual Insanity!
"I was wroth with my people, I have polluted mine inheritance, and given them into thine hand: thou didst shew them no mercy; upon the ancient hast thou very heavily laid thy yoke. And thou saidst, I shall be a lady forever: so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it. Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children: But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments. For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me. Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off; and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know."Isaiah 47:6-11
"And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth."Revelation 11:18
In this issue of the Last Trumpet, we will once again focus our attention on the amazing events of our day in the light of the true Word of God. We are truly living in the last of the last days, and these are indeed very strange times. In fact, if we use the Bible as a standard of judgment, we can say that these are days of open rebellion against Almighty God and days of wide-spread spiritual insanity. We live in a society of pleasure-mad and demon-driven people who feed their lusts and passions as they hyper-extend their credit to enslave themselves ever further into the illuministic cauldron in which they are blended into a people that will receive the very antichrist. Our government at every level is operating by witchcraft and astrology. Our denominational and even fundamental churches have likewise become institutions of the occult and paganism cleverly disguised as "Christ-centered." All of this was foretold long ago by our Lord Jesus Christ and his apostles.
Many people are confused, especially by what the churches are doing, as these are institutions that are supposed to be the answer. Yet they continue to sway and move with the prevailing wind of error and become the very epicenter of the problem. Where is the high standard of the Word of God in the religions of our day? Where is the call to repentance? Where is the forsaking of sin? Where is the broken and contrite heart?
Sadly, the people of this world are soaking in an illuminizing brine of error, and they love to have it that way. Sin and iniquity are reaching a saturation point, and the depths of Satan are now becoming clearly visible in a full manifestation of his millions of evil spirits who have taken over the management of millions of human beings, including government leaders and ministers. Here let it be noted that Satan is referred to as the prince of the power of the air. Ephesians 2:2 gives us the following warning: "Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience."
Strangely enough, the air or airwaves have great power in our present day. Electronic devices, including over five hundred communications satellites, fill our airwaves with smut, sex, and filth of every kind. Between sending stations and receiving devices are the airwaves, and they are filled with impulses of pornography, violence, and unspeakable graphic displays of all that hell has to offer. Computers, satellite television, satellite radio, cell phones, and numerous other devices all use the power of the air; and Satan is the prince of that power according to the Word of God. Yes, the Word of God warned us long ago of a strange time that would come when Satan and the powers of antichrist would seize upon the world and its population and set up an infernal kingdom by means of the power of the air. That time has most certainly come. Almighty God sees and hears all of these airwaves and every image they produce. Very soon He will bring awesome judgment upon it all. I urge everyone who is reading this letter to seek the Saviour now while a little time remains. The saving power of the Lord Jesus is so great that He can and will wash all of the evil out of your heart and mind and establish you in His Kingdom. It is a wonderful and awesome reality that you can be under new management. Now is the time to seek the Lord!
Advent of the Antichrist!
The month of June, 2006, brought forth various satanic projects designed to prepare people everywhere to accept the antichrist. First of all, exactly thirteen days before June 1st, 2006, The Da Vinci Code movie was released and was appearing in theaters world-wide. This antichrist movie ranked thirteenth of all time for a movie's opening day. (1) It quickly moved into second place world-wide for an opening weekend. (2) Because of its overwhelming success and popularity, Sony Pictures is now planning two sequels: The Da Vinci Code II and The Da Vinci Code III. (3) It has been noted that the immense popularity of the film is due to the favorable response of young people and even some "Christian" churches. One example is a church near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, called the Discovery Christian Church. This church bought all the tickets for a Carmike's Theater and offered paid admission for anyone who wanted to see The Da Vinci Code movie. (4)
There has never been such a blatant and outright attack on true Christianity as this movie has produced. Before I explain why, I would like to mention that Last Trumpet Ministries has produced a tract entitled "A Former Occultist Looks at the Da Vinci Code" by Pastor David J. Meyer. This tract is now printed and available to you for personal use and distribution. It is free for the asking, but help with postage is always appreciated. This is a hard-hitting tract loaded with information, and it makes the occult connection regarding The Da Vinci Code.
The purpose of The Da Vinci Code movie is to begin to make people think, and to ultimately convince them, that Jesus Christ married Mary Magdalene and impregnated her. The premise is that Mary Magdalene stood pregnant with His baby as He was crucified, and that she was whisked away to safety immediately after the crucifixion. Later, as the story goes, Mary Magdalene gave birth to a girl, the alleged physical daughter of Jesus. Subsequently, the girl grew up and married and gave birth to another girl. This trend supposedly continued on with girl births always until this present time. The people who supposedly protected this so-called "holy bloodline" formed a secret society called the Priory of Sion, and during the Crusades of the Middle Ages they formed a visible but secretive military called the Knights Templar. Here let it be noted that these organizations are very real and do exist. They are currently hiding in and operating from the highest orders of Freemasonry in the York Rite Lodge.
The twelfth Grand Master of the Priory of Sion was Leonardo Da Vinci, who built secret codes into his artistic works pertaining to the secret "holy bloodline" and "Holy Grail." Here let it be noted that most people who have searched history regarding this are under the impression that the Holy Grail is the sacred cup or chalice used by the Lord Jesus during the Last Supper. This is, however, an intended diversion, and this is where the connection with witchcraft comes in. In witchcraft, the chalice or cup represents the female genitals of the priestess. The male genitals of the priest are represented by the ceremonial knife called the athame' (pronounced ah-tah-may). When the knife is placed into the chalice under the light of a full moon, the witches believe that fertility power from the astral plane is drawn down from the full or ovulating moon. Thus, the grail is not a literal cup but the reproductive part of the female anatomy of the supposed physical descendants of Jesus Christ. This is rank blasphemy! The Priory of Sion and Knights Templar believe that there was and always will be a female descendant of Jesus until finally a male child is born of that bloodline. This male child is to be the ruler of the world. We who are true Christians would understand that this would be the antichrist. Will the two sequels to The Da Vinci Code movie bring millions of people to the very antichrist himself, who is brought out into public view and presented as the true "Christ" by physical descent and as rightful world leader of the new age? Time will tell.
We must also understand that the Roman Catholic Church has always secretly fought the Priory of Sion and the Knights Templar, because the doctrine that there is a physical bloodline of Jesus Christ threatens and nullifies papal succession and the established throne of the Pope. At this point let us consider the words of Revelation 17:16-17 as follows: "And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled."
Thus, the Bible tells us of a beast and a whore, which are both abominations and of Satan. Is the Priory of Sion and are the Knights Templar, which are both now hiding in the highest ranks of Freemasonry and the Illuminati, the beast? Are the Roman Catholic Church and her daughter denominations the whore? We must remember that the Roman Catholic system raised up such organizations as the Jesuits, the Knights of Columbus, the Papal Knights, and Opus Dei to fight the Priory of Sion. When the Illuminati's Priory of Sion presents the man that they say is the true physical descendant of Jesus Christ, will the final Pope endorse him and become his false prophet? Will he turn the hearts of one billion Catholic people to this false messiah born after the flesh? Will this son of the Grail be presented as the true "Christ", the last Buddha, the last prophet of Islam, and the new world Avatar? Will all religions unite under this son of the flesh? It will not be long until many of these questions are answered.
We must remember that the true Lord Jesus himself said in John 5:43, "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." Thus, the world will receive an imposter. We must also consider I John 4:1-3 as follows: "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God. And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world."
Thus, we know and believe that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, not that he will come in the flesh. He has already come in the flesh, and soon He will come visibly from above in the power of His glorified, spiritual body and not be reincarnated in the form of a physical or fleshly male descendant such as the one that the world will receive. God help us to get this vital message out and into wide circulation.
I must also mention that while this movie was drawing vast crowds to the theaters, the excited demons began to manifest in other forms of related blasphemy and desecration. On the same weekend that The Da Vinci Code opened in theaters, the infamous entertainer Madonna opened her latest tour called "Confessions." During her lewd performance of gyrations and frenzied dancing, she mounted a large lighted cross; and with a crown of thorns on her head and with outstretched arms, she positioned herself as if she were being crucified. (5) This was another obvious manifestation of the grail or female element.
Another event that happened just after The Da Vinci Code movie was released is that the illegitimate daughter of the immensely popular actor Brad Pitt and likewise popular actress Angelina Jolie was born. (6) The child was named Shiloh, which means the same thing as Messiah and is a title that belongs only to the true Lord Jesus Christ. An offer of 5.4 million dollars was offered for the rights of the first baby pictures!
Other Celebrations of the Beast!
June 6th, 2006, also known as 06-06-06, was a day of much occult activity, and as always, the repercussions will be forthcoming. Witches and Satanists, who are very different from each other, celebrated that day of three sixes in various ways. About sixty miles west of Detroit, Michigan, is a small town called Hell. On the day 06-06-06, people came from thousands of miles away to visit Hell, Michigan, on that day of the beast. The Mayor of Hell, Michigan, John Colone, who also owns a souvenir shop, had this to say, "I've got 666 T-shirts, and mugs. I'm only ordering 666 of the items so once they're gone, that's it. Everyone who comes will get a letter of authenticity saying you've celebrated June 6th, 2006, in Hell." The items all sold for $6.66 each. Special gates were also set up for the occasion and were called the gates of Hell. (7) Some may take all of this as a joke, but it is not funny; and those who are involved in the occult, who are many, take it very seriously as does Satan himself. All who were involved have cursed themselves.
On that same day of 06-06-06, Hollywood released two antichrist movies. One was a remake of The Omen, which is about a man who is a political figure who realizes that his adopted infant son, Damien, who has a 666 birthmark on his skull, is the reincarnation of Satan. Death begins to surround him everywhere. (8)
Another movie that was released on 06-06-06 was called The Beast. The story is about a fundamentalist Christian pastor who disappears after he stumbles across incontrovertible, factual evidence that Christ never existed. In searching for him, his daughter Danielle also has to combat a group of fundamentalist Christians who are trying to suppress the "truth" of the non-existence of Christ and thus save their religion. (9) Sadly, the beastmovie.com is also selling a self-inking rubber stamp for the movie-goers, so they can stamp a 666 mark on their bodies. The stamp, which is good for 10,000 impressions, sells for $6.66. The advertisement says, "Wear the mark! Wear the mark on your forehead or right hand, lasts for 10,000 impressions, safe and fun, great for all ages, stamp your friends! Image size: 7/8" diameter." (10)
Illegal Aliens and the Mark of the Beast!
It has been more than a month since the last nation-wide protest march by illegal aliens. The problems with illegal aliens, however, have grown continually worse. Recently, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that experts are now saying that this is one of the largest diasporas in modern history. Approximately ten percent of Mexico's population is now living in the United States, not including the many illegal aliens from Central America. Fifteen percent of Mexico's entire labor force now works in the United States. One of every seven Mexican workers migrates to the United States. (11) It has been said that the illegal aliens from Mexico have been a boost to the U.S. economy but the opposite is true. You will notice the illegal workers in droves at the post offices buying money orders and sending vast amounts of money out of our country. A vast river of migra-dollars continually flows out of the United States and into Mexico. According to Arturo Valenzuela, director of the Center for Latin American Studies at Georgetown University, the money Mexican migrants send home almost equals the U.S. foreign aid budget for the entire world. (12)
It is a fact that illegal entry into this country has traditionally been a serious crime. The White House and Bush Administration has now equated that offense with receiving a speeding ticket. White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said, "If you had a traffic ticket and you paid it, you're not forever a speeder, are you?" (13) Tony Snow, an illuminist CFR member, is equating a felony to a traffic violation! Furthermore, on the eighteenth day of May, 2006, the United States' Senate voted to allow illegal aliens to collect Social Security benefits based on past illegal employment - even if the job was obtained through forged or stolen documents. (14) The vote was 50 to 49. Senator Jim DeMint, a South Carolina Republican said, "It makes no sense to reward millions of illegal immigrants for criminal behavior while our Social Security system is already in crisis." (15) We know that this is all part of the Illuminati blueprint to force the economic merger of the United States and Mexico. This is another major step toward one world government. It happened in Europe with the Euro, so watch for a new currency called the Amero, which will be common currency for the United States, Mexico, and Canada. The economists are already working on it, but our economy must first absorb the weak Mexican peso!
We are now beginning to understand another reason why all of this is happening, and why our government intentionally allowed so many millions of illegal immigrants to come into our country. On May 25th, 2006, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg called for a plan that would establish a DNA database to track and verify all legal U.S. workers. (16) On June 1st, 2006, Scott Silverman, CEO of the VeriChip Corporation announced that he is working with the Bush Administration to implant RFID tracking chips in the flesh of all illegal aliens who will be given "guest worker status." (17) VeriChip is also reportedly working with the Pentagon to implant chips in all military personnel. It is all moving so fast now!
One strange twist of events occurred here in Wisconsin on May 31st, 2006. Governor Jim Doyle signed legislation that makes it illegal in the state of Wisconsin to force anyone to be implanted with a microchip. Wisconsin is the only state in the Union where this is now illegal. (18) I suspect that Governor Doyle did this because his number one political enemy is former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson, who was also President Bush's Health and Human Services Secretary during his first term. Thompson now works for the VeriChip Company.
War and a Festering World!
History reveals that in the past 3,500 years, there have only been about 230 years of peace throughout the world. (19) Since the formation of the United Nations in 1945, which was set up on the premise of ensuring everlasting peace, there has never been a moment of peace. Iran is accelerating its nuclear program, and U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice continues to threaten Iran and to warn them that they do not have much time. (20) The whole Middle East is getting ready to explode, and the entire Moslem world is becoming more and more agitated. It is interesting to note that the four horses of Revelation are the colors white, red, black, and green. (The word "pale" is taken from the Greek word chloros or pale green). These four colors are found in the flags of seven Arab nations: Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, the Sudan, Syria, the UAE, and Yemen. These colors are said to stand for Arab unity. These and other Moslem nations are looking on in amazement as U.S. military personal intentionally butcher innocent civilians, including women and children. British newspapers have photographic evidence of numerous such events. CNN reported on May 20th that according to the Associated Press hundreds of soldiers that are known to be mentally ill are being sent to Iraq. (21)
Of the British army who are deployed to Iraq, a whopping 8,600 troops, the equivalent of one and one-half infantry battalions, have gone absent without leave since 2003. One thousand of them are still on the run. (22) They are refusing to fight in this insane war. And speaking of insanity and double cross, an Australian newspaper reported on May 13th, 2006, that the Pentagon has secretly shipped tens of thousands of small weapons from Bosnia to Iraq in the past two years using a web of private companies. Amnesty International has reported that at least 200,000 Kalashnikov assault rifles left Bosnia for Iraq with the stated intent that they were for the new Iraqi government army, but they did not receive them, and no one seems to know what happened to the weapons. (23) Meanwhile the insurgent Iraqis grow stronger. It would not be the first time we supplied our own enemies while we were fighting them. Remember Vietnam when the same Standard Oil Company trucks came out of Hanoi to supply fuel for both sides? Are we even now encouraging a civil war in Iraq to fulfill a nefarious, illuministic scheme?
Here in the United States, strange things are happening. On Monday, June 19th, which is thirteen days after the date of 06-06-06, four thousand Federal workers from more than fifty agencies will be going to classified emergency facilities stretching from the Maryland and Virginia suburbs to the foothills of the Alleghenies. They are taking to the underground bunkers in an evacuation drill that is being described as "the largest continuity of government exercise ever conducted, a drill intended to prepare the U.S. government for an event even more catastrophic than the September 11th, 2001, attacks." (24) When I saw this, I was reminded of Revelation 6:15-17 which reads as follows: "And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?"
Bible prophecy is being fulfilled before our very eyes. Here let it be noted that Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert made a speech before our U.S. Congress on May 24th, 2006, which is thirteen days before the date 06-06-06. Olmen received eighteen standing ovations, and in occult numerology, eighteen becomes three sixes, the number of the Beast! Furthermore, the date 06-06-06 is exactly thirty-nine years to the day from the Six-Day War when the Old City of Jerusalem was captured by the Israelis in 1967. The number thirty-nine is the occult number of thirteen tripled, which is triumviral occult power. It is also interesting to note that in his speech, Ehud Olmert stated that his country is willing to divide Jerusalem. (25) That statement reminded me of Revelation 16:19 which says, "And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in rememberance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath."
As the time of our Lord's return draws ever nearer, we who are true Christians understand that the oppressiveness of the beast system of antichrist also increases. We do not fear, however, because our victory is certain. Revelation 12:11-12 tells us of this great victory as follows: "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time."
We have now learned that the United Nations is working to make home schooling in America illegal. Michael Farris, chairman and general counsel of the Home School Legal Defense Association or HSLDA, stated that the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child could be binding on the people of the United States. Currently, the United States is virtually the only nation in the world where this U.N. treaty is not yet binding. Article 13 of this treaty subjects parents to prosecution if they attempt to prevent their children from interacting with any material that the parents deem objectionable. Article 14 of the treaty allows children to object to any religious training. Article 15 allows the children the right to associate with any person even if the parents object. (26) We know that the Almighty has the final word regarding all of this.
We also know that on March 7th, 2006, President George Bush signed an executive order to "establish a Center for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives at the Department of Homeland Security." (27) In short, this department will be used to regulate all churches that are registered with the Federal Government and to monitor their activities. We know that the true Church of Jesus Christ is governed from Heaven, for the Lord Jesus himself said, "My Kingdom is not of this world."
The Creation in Turmoil!
Strange and unusual signs in the creation are happening everywhere, both on earth and in space. Astronomers are now reporting that galaxy clusters are now having much higher than usual supernova yields. (28) In other words, an unusual number of stars are exploding. On earth, freak tornadoes have hit Ireland and the Bahamas where tornadoes are not generally seen. The residents of these areas were shocked. Volcanoes have been erupting from Indonesia to Ecuador. (29)
On May 27th, 2006, a killer earthquake hit Indonesia. The magnitude of the quake was 6.2, and it initially left 170,000 people dead or missing. A cab driver who survived the quake said, "Buildings shook like pendulums, I thought it was Armageddon." (30)
On May 25th, 2006, the Associated Press reported that deserts are expanding. (31) Satellite photos reveal that major deserts of the earth are rapidly expanding, and the Sahara Desert is moving ever closer to the Mediterranean Sea. (32)
Another amazing sign appeared in the sky just after the date of 06-06-06. For hundreds of miles over the Idaho-Washington border, the sky lighted up in broad daylight as the seven colors of the spectrum appeared not as a rainbow but as leaping and pulsating tongues of brilliant fire. The authorities called it a circumhorizon arc in its rarest form. (33) Dr. Jonathan Fox of the U.S. National Weather Service in Spokane, Washington, said it was far more spectacular than the northern lights. The awesome display lasted for about an hour. (34)
I believe firmly that we are at the very doors of the Lord's coming, and we are being continually warned of that fact. Twenty-six months ago I was seeking the Lord before going over to the church to preach. Suddenly, the Lord showed me an amazing vision. I saw a large square building only a few stories high. There were other buildings around it, and the early rays of dawn were just appearing. There was also a river in the background. Suddenly, there was a massive explosion, and columns of fire appeared that devastated the area. As I saw the vision, I asked the Lord where this would happen. Immediately the phone rang, and after the third ring, my wife answered the phone; it was a man from Brooklyn, New York. I had my answer. It was a man I did not know and had never talked with before. I knew it was a sign from the Lord. After this vision twenty-six months passed by, which is two thirteens. It was just after the witches' sabat of Beltaine or May 1st, which was also the day of the Illegal alien uprising. As the day was just dawning on May 2nd, a massive building in Brooklyn, New York, exploded. It was a big square-type of building exactly as I had seen in the vision. It happened at 5:33 A.M. at Greenpoint in Brooklyn with the East River in the background. (35) The explosion was so great that the New York Daily News printed the headlines: "It looked like an atomic bomb hit." (36) I thought that to be amazing, because in the vision I thought it was an atomic blast. This blast that destroyed fifteen buildings is of unknown origin and little is being said about it. I was stunned when I saw the pictures, for it was like seeing it for the second time. I printed the entire account of my vision in the March, 2004, Last Trumpet Newsletter, at the end of page five. Truly, this is sign from the Lord and the timing is amazing. Another sign is that the first fire engine to arrive was engine number 119, which is the reverse of 911. This is another sign that the time is at hand.
In closing, I once again offer my sincerest thanks to all of you who support this end-time prophetic ministry. God bless you exceedingly. We always welcome prayer requests from all. Grace and peace be multiplied unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
David J. Meyer
