The Final Days of Satan’s Last Empire!
“How doth the city sit solitary, that was full of people! How is she become as a widow! She that was great among the nations, and princess among the provinces, How is she become tributary! She weepeth sore in the night, and her tears are on her cheeks: among all her lovers she hath none to comfort her: all her friends hath dealt treacherously with her, they have become her enemies.”Lamentations 1:1-2
“And now, go to, I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down: And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briars and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it…..Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.”Isaiah 5:5-6, 13-14
“And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath, blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”Acts 2:19-21
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will examine the shocking fulfillment of Scripture that was written long ago. We will look closely at the overwhelming evidence that Satan’s final empire is both rising and falling at the same time. It is an empire that is of short duration and will be ultimately destroyed by the awesome presence and brightness of our Lord Jesus Christ at His second coming. We know from the Scripture that there have been six one-world empires in world history; namely, Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome. Each one had exclusive characteristics, symbols, and a pagan religion. We also know that in the last days there will be a final kingdom or beast that will rise up out of the sea of humanity. The final empire or kingdom of the Beast will be different from every one before it, because it will be comprised of all beasts or world empires that were before it. In Daniel, chapter seven, we read of four kingdoms that God compares to beasts. Babylon is a lion with two wings, Medo-Persia is a bear with ribs in its mouth, Greece is a leopard with four heads and four wings, and Rome is an indescribable, vicious beast with iron teeth.
The beast that is rising up now before our very eyes is a mixture of previous beasts or empires. Revelation 13:1-2 tells us of the beast we are now seeing 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. 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.”
From the above description, we can see that the seventh and final world empire is the most unusual and grotesque of all. It is a sort of Frankenstein’s monster, whose very essence is blasphemy. When we consider the United States of America, we can easily see that we have a nation that is made up of many nations. American English is a composite of many languages with the languages of science, law, and academia being Latin and Greek. America has the architecture of ancient empires for its capitol buildings, along with the symbolism of Egypt, Greece, and Rome. Even church buildings and cathedrals contain these pagan symbols. America is also a nation given over to vice, perversion, drunkenness, and gluttony. Spiritual wickedness is in high places, and the very conditions that existed in the ancient Roman Empire now fill our spiritually deranged society like a pervasive and prevailing dark cloud blown everywhere by the night winds of hell. As you read the remainder of this newsletter, you will see this very clearly. We will also see that there is a self-destructing mechanism in Satan’s blueprint for takeover, much like a computer virus that destroys its own host. Judgment is soon to come, and every human being, including you, will spend eternity somewhere. The good news is that you can surrender your heart and mind to the Lord Jesus, and all will be well. If you are reading this, there is still time, but not much time!
The Clarion Cry of the Creation!
The heavens and the earth are the creative handiwork of the Almighty, and all that He has made become a sure voice of witness against the inhabitants of the earth in the last days. From the earthquakes that rattled South Knoxville, Tennessee; and southern Colorado on the same day, to fireballs streaking over Colorado, all of which happened on January 4th, 2007, we know something is going on. (1) The freak weather with cherry blossoms blooming in New York City in January (2) should tell us something strange is happening, and more is about to happen. In the Israeli State, ice and snow storms shut down roads and highways on December 28th, 2006. (3) Northern Europe welcomed in the New Year with an ice-free Baltic Sea, (4) and in the Canadian Arctic, an immense ice shelf, measuring 66 square kilometers or 25.5 square miles, tore away from Ellesmere Island, which is near Greenland. (5)
The new year of 2007 arrived with another sign in the heavens. Comet McNaught, a very bright comet, appeared in early January and was seen accompanying the rising and setting sun each day. (6) Meanwhile, volcanoes and earthquakes have been declaring their testimony against sinful man. Mt. Vesuvius, which buried the ancient city of Pompeii in Italy, is now in these last days the most heavily monitored volcano in the world. Geologists are warning that three million people are at risk as Vesuvius has awakened once again. (7) Many volcanoes are awakening, and on January 9th, Nicaragua’s Telica Volcano spewed columns of gases and ash hundreds of feet into the air while the earth rumbled. (8)
On January 10th, an earthquake shook northwest Red China, causing thousands of buildings to crumble; and on the same day, a smaller quake rattled southeastern Oklahoma. (9) Southeastern Alaska was hit with a 5.7 magnitude quake the day before on January 9th, 2007. (10)
On December 26th, 2006, exactly two years after a massive earthquake caused the devastating tsunami, struck and killed nearly one-quarter million people in one day, two powerful quakes struck off Taiwan and severed two underwater communications cables. These two quakes, one for each cable, shut down the internet for nearly all of Asia! (11) With two little shakes, God cut off pornography from the Internet on the largest continent of the world. That day of December 26th has been one of dire warning from the Almighty. With that in mind, I must also mention that the Russian newspaper Pravda reported that on Christmas Eve, 2004, just before the devastating tsunami, massive explosions filled the sky over Jakarta, Indonesia. The Indonesian Air Force confirmed that it was a meteor shower over all of Indonesia, and people watched with amazement as falling stars from heaven crashed to the earth. It was December 24th when the stars fell from heaven, and just 36 hours later, a quarter million people were dead. Strangely enough, the number 36 is the square of six or six times six. If you add every number between 1 and 36 together, you have a sum total of 666. (12)
Another sign happened over Chicago, Illinois, on November 7th, 2006. More than a dozen United Airlines employees clearly witnessed a flying saucer-like object over O’Hare Airport. The Chicago Tribune reported, “A flying saucer-like object hovered low over O’Hare International Airport for several minutes before bolting through the thick clouds with such intense energy that it left an eerie hole in the overcast skies.” The employees that saw it are angered that it is being dismissed as nothing, without any kind of investigation. (13)
A Comet and the Death of Two World Leaders!
Those who are watching and praying and have discernment are seeing some amazing things in these last days. As the year 2006 ended, two former world leaders lay dead -- one in the ancient land of Babylon and the other in the Capitol of modern-day Babylon in Washington, D.C. One of these two leaders, former President Gerald Ford, was given a Masonic funeral on Friday, Decemer 29th. Ford was a 33rd degree Scottish Rite Mason, and he was the only President who ever occupied that office without a single vote being cast for him. He became President by others coming to naught through resignations. Former President Nixon had resigned in disgrace from the Presidency, and Ford fully pardoned him for all crimes committed while in office. (14) Ford was the eleventh President to lie in state under the rotunda in the Capitol Building. (15) Here let it be noted that the word capitol as defined by the Oxford Dictionary means temple of Zeus or Jupiter.
Then, at this same time, another former leader died and was brought to naught by execution in the ancient land of Babylon, which is now called Iraq. Saddam Hussein was hanged. His body was then put in a plain pine coffin and strapped into an American military helicopter and flown to his grave near the Tigris River. (16) This happened at a strange and ominous time as the moon was waxing toward the most occult full moon of the year, reaching the full stage only a few days later. (The January full moon is called the full wolf moon, because witches believe that the spirit of Lupa causes the wolves to howl intensely at that time. This moon is also called the old moon and the moon after Yule.) Then following these two deaths, a comet appeared brightly in the sky. It was so bright that you could see it with the naked eye. Witches believe that a comet marks the death of a world leader. That is why William Shakespeare had one of his characters refer to a comet that appeared on the Ides of March, the day of the death of Julius Caesar by stating, “When peasants die there are no comets seen, but the heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes.” It is interesting to note that the recently discovered comet that appeared at the time of the death of these two fallen leaders was named Comet McNaught after the man who discovered it. The word naught means a zero, a nothing, or of no worth. Saddam Hussein died in disgrace and hatred at the hand of a jeering lynch mob, and Ford was a man who had zero votes and still became President.
There is another strange twist to this strange, occult, and ominous time. On the same day when the occult, Masonic funeral for Ford and the execution of Hussein were taking place, the high-level leaders of Judaism in New York and in the Israeli State placed the original hand-written scroll of the Torah, the first five books of Moses, on an airplane and flew it from New York City to Tel Aviv. It was the first time the sacred writings was ever put on an airplane, and it became known as Sky Torah or flying scroll. (17) When I first learned of this, I immediately thought of Zechariah, chapter five, verses one and three, which say, “Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll….then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it: and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it.”
It is truly amazing that the Torah, the first five books of the Bible, would become a flying roll or scroll, and that this would be a sign of judgment entering into every home of the unsaved to condemn it. We read of this in Zechariah 5:4 which says, “I will bring it forth, saith the Lord of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.”
Life and Death in the Kingdom of Antichrist!
As Almighty God looked down upon the earth in the darkness of night on December 31st, He saw the glittering lights of a carnal world celebrating the end of one year and the beginning of another. The passage of time was being marked and wild revelry was everywhere. In Times Square in New York City, one million people gathered to go berserk. (18) Similar celebrations circled our globe. But God sees and knows all that the new year holds, and by His spirit, every true and discerning Christian feels the urgency of the shortness of time and the foreboding of great calamity on the horizon.
There is already great distress in the world, and life is not good in the kingdom of antichrist. According to the Army Times publication, the United States Army’s newest service component command is now fully operational. It is located at Fort Sam Houston and is called U.S. Army North. Also known as USARNORTH, it is designed as a northern command force to work strictly with civil authorities within the homeland. (19) By now I am sure you can see that this is the branch of the military set up for martial law in a police state.
On January 9th, 2007, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger brazenly declared that his state of California is a modern day nation-state like unto Athens and Sparta. (20) Apparently, the spirits that operated in ancient Athens and Sparta are now operating in California.
On January 5th, 2007, President Bush declared through legislation that the Federal Government now has the right to open first class mail without a warrant, which is contrary to the Constitution. (21) We know that they have been opening mail for a long time, but now they are so brazen and audacious that they are telling us.
In a shocking article that appeared in the “Human Events” section of the National Conservative Weekly, dated June 9th, 2006, Jerome R. Corsi revealed that the Council on Foreign Relations is clearly calling for the unification of the United States, Canada, and Mexico, which is to be ruled over by a North American Tribunal that would supercede the United States Supreme Court. Robert Pastor of American University is the vice chairman of the CFR task force for this endeavor. Pastor spoke to the Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee on June 9th, 2005, and had this to say, “Instead of stopping North Americans on the borders, we ought to provide them with a secure, biometric border pass that would ease transit across the border like the E-Z that pass permits our cars to speed through toll booths.” (22) Biometric means we must register our bodies to be identified as North American citizens!
With the above in mind, the Houston Chronicle released a story on December 29th, 2006, with the headline: Safety Project Focuses on Isle Eyes. Galveston County is piloting a program which calls for iris scans for a biometric database for all children, the elderly, and those with certain mental disorders. The information is for the construction of a database for identification purposes. (23)
The new members of the 110th Congress are now busy as Nancy Pelosi sets her antichrist schemes in motion. One of her prime objectives is to pass the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2007, H.R. 3. This legislation calls for the destruction of human embryos for research purposes. (24) Why is there such a push for this destruction of human life when embryonic cell research has thus far yielded no results, and non-embryonic research has been successful?
The human body is a dispensable commodity in the kingdom of the antichrist beast, and people are being micro-managed in every way. On December 28th, 2006, the London Daily Mail announced that British scientists developed a new flu vaccine that works against every kind of flu. It is being called the Holy Grail vaccine. (25)
On December 19th, 2006, the United States Navy announced that it will be testing a new blood substitute on civilian trauma victims that is derived from cow’s blood. This will be administered in emergency situations without the patient’s consent. The cow’s blood product is called hemopure, and it is manufactured by Biopure of Cambridge, Massachusetts. The FDA blocked its use three times as being dangerous; now it is approved. (26)
Cloned animals have now been declared safe for food and food products. Super-sized cows are now being cloned and are giving up to ten gallons of milk per day. (27) The FDA has stated that cloned products are perfectly safe according to Stephen F. Sundlof, director of the FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine. (28) Here let it be noted that the technical name for cloning is somatic cell nuclear transfer. A donor egg is removed and replaced with the DNA of a cow, pig, or goat and stimulated with electric shock to cause the egg to grow into a duplicate of the animal from which it came. Cloned animals have a tendency to develop cancer and arthritis in a very short time. The famous Dolly, the cloned sheep, died prematurely this way. (29) Is it safe for humans?
Danger lurks everywhere, and only Almighty God can help us. We live in a country where two million people pick up infections in hospitals every year, and ninety thousand of those people die from the infections. (30)
Another even greater problem is the danger of a chemical called Bisphenol A or BPA. Dr. Fred vom Saal of Missouri University has been working 14 hours per day for years to expose the dangers of this commonly used substance. It is a chemical used in many plastics, and it is in the linings of steel food cans to prevent metallic taste in foods. It is also used in baby bottles, toddler’s cups, Lexan, plastic wrap, and microwave plastic dishware. The grave danger is that BPA mimics the effects of powerful sex hormones and can cause brain damage, abnormal organ development, and hyperactivity even when present in small doses. Dr. vom Saal also stated that he received a visit from a representative of Dow Chemical Company, and he was asked to withhold the findings. The exact words of the Dow representative were, “Can we arrive at a mutually beneficial outcome where you hold off publishing this study?” Meanwhile, the government allows the use of six billion pounds of BPA per year! Dr. vom Saal also mentioned that many of the plastic items with the number 7 inside the recycling symbol contain BPA. (31) This is just another planned reason why the health care facilities stay so busy.
The Moslem Takeover of America!
Even though we have known for a long time that the United States of America is not a Christian nation, we now know that it can never be called “Christian” again. On January 4th, 2007, Keith Ellison, a new member of the 110th Congress from the state of Minnesota, took his ceremonial oath of office with a Koran (also Quran). The Koran is the “holy book” of Islam, the Moslem faith. This Koran used in the ceremony was once owned by Thomas Jefferson, and the oath was administered by the new Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. (32) The sad fact is that this oath of office of the United States government was taken on a book that says all Christians must die!
The following quotes are taken directly from the Koran: “Slay them wherever you find them….idolatry is worse than carnage….fight against them until idolatry is no more and Allah’s religion is supreme.” (Surah 2:190-) “The only true faith in God’s sight is Islam.” (Surah 3:19) “Seek out your enemies relentlessly.” (Surah 4:103-) “Believers, take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends.” (Surah 5:51) “Make war on them until idolatry shall cease and God’s religion shall reign supreme. (Surah 8:36-) “Say: Praise be to God who has never begotten a son; who has no partner in his kingdom….” (Surah 17:111) At this point I must also note that on the Dome of the Rock Mosque in the Israeli State are written the following words: “God has no son.”
I also have in front of me a picture of the late Pope John Paul II kissing the Koran after an audience with Patriarch Raphael I of Iraq, where the Pope also bowed before the Moslem “holy book.” We must also remember that the Koran has exactly 6,666 verses in it! (33)
On December 27th, 2006, the Christian Science Monitor featured a story with the following headline: Uncle Sam Wants U.S. Muslims to Serve.” The article verifies that our government is raising up an Islamic army, and the Pentagon is building Islamic prayer rooms and hiring imams (Moslem holy men) to induce recruitment. West Point and other major military academies have opened Moslem prayer rooms. Imams are serving as chaplains at U.S. military academies and bases throughout the United States. In addition to that, top non-Muslim officers and Pentagon officials been worshipping with them and participating with Muslim religious events both overseas and here in America. (34)
There is much more to consider regarding the rising Islamic force in America. The Presidential race in America is beginning to take shape, and the two front runners for the Democratic Party are Senator Hillary Clinton and a man who seemed to come from nowhere, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois. Senator Obama is becoming immensely popular, and even Hillary Clinton admitted that he is a very real threat to her pursuit of the Presidency. While Obama does not claim to be a Moslem, he obviously has close ties to that religion. His father’s name was Barack Hussein Obama Sr. of Kenya, Africa. (35) Senator Barack Obama was born in Hawaii but hardly knew his father. His mother was Ann Durham of Wichita, Kansas, who later married a Muslim named Lolo Soetoro and moved to Jakarta, Indonesia. Senator Obama admitted to using cocaine and living a “party lifestyle of drug and alcohol use.” (36) Senator Obama has become an idol to a lot of women, because he has been featured in magazines in beach wear, and the female sector has been ogling his athletic physique. He has also been on the cover of major news magazines such as Time, and U.S. News and World Report. There is a very real possibility that either Barack Hussein Obama or Hillary Clinton will be the next U.S. President. Either way we lose badly!
England also is becoming overrun with Moslems. On November 30th, 2006, the London Daily Express reported that “Muslim laws are coming to England.” The British government is going to allow Moslem laws to be enforced among their people in England, including humans being beheaded for adultery, thieves being decapitated, and so on. (37)
Corrupt Leadership for a Corrupt People!
The new Majority Leader for the United States Senate is now U.S. Senator Harry Reid of Searchlight, Nevada. When Reid was being interviewed in his home by reporters, he took them into his bathroom and pointed to his most prized possession. It was an autographed poster of the Grateful Dead. (38) The Grateful Dead is a notorious hard rock band noted for their heavy drug cult following. They are a satanic group of the first magnitude, and their followers are referred to as deadheads. Their emblem is a skeleton wearing a tuxedo and top hat with the skull wearing sunglasses. It is true, our Senate Majority leader is a deadhead, and this may explain the residue of the two lines of white powder on the glass top of the table, where he was seated with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, sometimes referred to as “Nasty Pelosi.”
I am now looking at a number of pictures of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on the day she took office. As she stood in front of all the dignitaries present, she held a black leather bull whip in front of her chest and proudly proclaimed, “I am the most powerful woman in America.” Pelosi then made two clenched fists and held them in a tai kwon do karate position. In the next photograph, she is lifting a gavel high into the air with a look on her face that would scare the devil himself if he had a mind to look at her. The next picture shows Pelosi lifting her right fist above her head in the communist power salute that was so common during the riots and demonstrations of the 1960’s. She then brings her fist slightly downward and turns her knuckles forward to the striking serpent salute used by Satanists. (39) The late high priest of the Church of Satan, also secretly known as the Hotel California, was often seen using the striking serpent salute. Without a doubt, hell has been raised, and hells children are now occupying the highest offices in our erstwhile great nation.
These last days are strange times with strange people in strange places. One example of this is the story of what happened to the communist subversive group known as the Black Panthers. In 1969, a group of Black Panthers condemned one of their members named Alex Rackley to death for disloyalty. After being stripped and tied to a chair, Rackley was tortured with boiling water and then shot in the head by Black Panther leader Warren Kimbro. Rackley’s body was then dumped in a river near New Haven, Connecticut. In 1977, only eight years after the trial of these murderers, the shooter, Warren Kimbro, managed to get a scholarship to attend Harvard University, where he became one of the best friends of Al Gore. Kimbro later became an Assistant Dean at an eastern Connecticut State College.
The woman who boiled the water for the torture is Erica Huggins, and she was elected to a California School Board. The success of these two sadistic murderers is owed to two people, both of whom literally shut down Yale University with protests in defense of the murderers. One defender was Bill Lan Lee, who is now the head of the United States Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. He was appointed to that position by former President Bill Clinton. The second defender of the murderous Black Panthers was a radical law student at Yale University, and she is now being called the “smartest woman in the world.” She is now a Senator from New York and is running with a passionate fire to become the next President of the United States. I am referring to Hillary Rodham Clinton. (40) God help us all! Evil is reaching a saturation point, and soon our Saviour will return! Are you ready? If you call upon the Lord Jesus, He will graciously save you and sustain you. Do it now for time is short.
In closing, I want to sincerely thank all of you who support this prophetic end-time ministry in so many ways. I pray that you will be blessed exceedingly. Please remember to send us your prayers requests as our team of intercessors will give each one individual attention. Very soon, I hope to see you in that place where the roses never fade. Grace and peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
