A World Illuminated by False Light
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; that made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof, that opened not the house of his prisoners?”
“Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God; and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.”
“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!”
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will examine a condition that now exists in the United States and much of the world. It is a condition that allows Satan and his forces of darkness to perpetuate the works and schemes of the antichrist with full cooperation from nearly everyone on earth. Many discerning Christians have asked me how Satan could get so many people to follow him both knowingly and unknowingly. The answer to that question is both simple and profound. Satan, the prince of darkness, has manifested a false light! People who have not found the true light of the saving power of the Lord Jesus Christ are walking in another kind of light. It is really just another form of darkness that is perceived by the deceived as enlightenment; which involves religions, noble causes, and good works. Our Saviour commented on this deceptive light by saying, “How great is that darkness!” How do we persuade people to seek the true light of God if they think they already have it?
We know that the antichrist will not be perceived as the antichrist by the people of this world. Only the true remnant Christians, who know their Bibles, will understand the truth of the matter because it is revealed to them. In the realm of that false dark light, true Christians will be perceived as uncooperative, stubborn, and even insane, because they will not conform to the dictates of the new global leadership. We must always remember that the early Christians were persecuted and martyred not because of what they were doing, but because of what they refused to do and go along with. As true Christians, there are things that we must never do even though they are universally accepted by the rest of the world. The powers of darkness are closing in fast, and that approaching shroud is in the form of a shadowy light from the one who was once called Lucifer, the bringer of light. His human conspirators refer to themselves as the Illuminati, which means holders of the light.
The good news is that you as an individual do not have to be deceived by the deceptive web and net that is now captivating the world. If you will give your heart completely to the Lord Jesus Christ, He will keep you from the hour of temptation and evil. In Revelation 3:10-11 we read as follows: “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold fast that which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.”
Society’s Insatiable Appetite for Evil!
One of the sure signs that we are living in the last generation is the insatiable appetite of society for evil. Our ancestors of even one generation ago would not believe what is now happening! On October 26th, 2007, the Associated Press carried the story of the forthcoming Voodoo Fest weekend in New Orleans during the weekend prior to Halloween. Voodoo Fest was the first festival to be held in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina devastated that city in 2005. In 2006, the Voodoo Fest attracted ninety thousand people there along the Mississippi River. (1)
Another great abomination is scheduled for December 7th, 2007, which is the seventy-sixth anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor by the empire of Japan. The great abomination scheduled for that day is the release of a new movie entitled The Golden Compass. The movie is based on a book by British author Philip Pullman entitled Northern Lights. It is to be released as a children’s movie, complete with religious allegories, talking animals, and a witchcraft device called an alethiometer, which uses divination to find truth. Every character in the movie is demon possessed and has a voice that guides him. The Golden Compass has similar themes as the Chronicles of Narnia and even begins with a girl hiding in a wardrobe. The book that the movie is taken from is actually part of a series in which a young girl struggles with God, who is presented as senile. Another character is an ex-nun, who describes Christianity as a powerful and convincing mistake. In the final book of the series, characters representing Adam and Eve witness the death of God! (2)
Without a doubt, the United States is being taken over by occult forces, and very few seem to be aware of it. It is that subtle dark light being introduced to a society that is oblivious to the truth. On October 18th, 2007, the Dalai Lama, a Buddhist “holy man”, was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal by President George W. Bush. President Bush praised the Dalai Lama by saying, “He is a shepherd of the faithful and a keeper of the flame for his people.” (3) It is interesting to note that Buddhists have been very active in the United States and have been cursing our waterways with their religion. One of many such incidents occurred in West Grand Traverse Bay in the state of Michigan. Buddhists made a large mandala of painted sand with numerous occult designs in it. It is a work of art to many people, but bands unused for the mandala are poured into a body of water during a religious ceremony in an attempt to disperse “healing energies.” (4) Here let it also be noted that Buddhism is a favorite religion with Wiccans.
We have also learned that the U.S. Postal Service has approved the issuance of a new stamp featuring the Star Wars character Yoda. A special ceremony honoring the Yoda stamp was held on October 25th at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. (5) We must remember that the Star Wars movies were written entirely in witchcraft jargon and presented many of the tenets and doctrines of witchcraft, including reincarnation.
Witchcraft in its various forms is being manifested continually. That fact explains many unusual things that have been going on. On October 23rd, 2007, a giant twenty-five foot statue of the Egyptian god of death was floated down the Thames River in London, England. The massive statue of Anubis, the jackal god, is to stand at various positions around Trafalgar Square. (6) Egyptian witchcraft teaches that Anubis escorted people to the underworld after they died, and it remains a symbol of death.
When we consider all of the above things that are happening and many other such things, we are made to wonder why there isn’t a great voice of outrage from the Christians. It is a sad fact that most Christian pastors just don’t care anymore. Other “Christian” pastors are involved in witchcraft themselves.
In Deerwood, Minnesota, during the summer of 2007, a gay Christian Camp was held to “help” young teens. The sponsors were Brad Froslee, a Presbyterian minister, and the Bethany Lutheran Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The leaders stated that “gay” children are coming out earlier and earlier. (7) We also know that Deerfield High School in Deerfield, Illinois, reportedly ordered their freshman class of 14-year-olds into a gay indoctrination seminar after having them sign a confidentiality agreement promising not to tell their parents. (8)
America is being overcome by spirits of confusion and perversion. On November 8th, 2007, televangelist Pat Robertson endorsed Rudy Giuliani for President of the United States. (9) Giuliani is sometimes known as “Julie Annie”, because he cross-dresses at work and in other public places. He prefers tight skirts, makeup, and a bushy blond wig. This is the man who wants to be the President!
Has anyone noticed the trend in this wicked nation? On October 23rd, 2007, the Portland Press Herald reported the shocking story of a new program at King Middle School. The school board committee for that Portland, Maine, school voted 7-2 in favor of offering a full range of contraception, including the “pill” and the “patch” to all students ages 11-15. Since state law already allows confidentiality regarding reproductive health, the parents of the children may never know what is going on with their child! (10)
In Australia, government radio ABC 720 6WF has been presenting programs such as a female presenter who seriously suggested the legitimizing of swearing since it is so universal. Another program featured an interview with the director of a play where people will see about 30 ml of blood extracted from a person on stage and then added to a sausage mix, which is then cooked and eaten! (11) This is rank Satanism! How long will the Almighty Saviour put up with such things? One good thing is that the writers’ strike in Hollywood has shut down eight prime time shows. (12)
We know that Satan is operating in high places, and when we consider the family tree of President George W. Bush, we find some amazing things. In a New York Post article, dated October 28th, 2007, an amazing expose’ was presented. We know that Satan tries to work through bloodlines and family trees when he can. With that in mind, records reveal that President George W. Bush is related to Dick Cheney, Hugh Hefner (Playboy Empire), Benedict Arnold, and Vlad the Impaler, who was the real life Count Dracula. (13) There is also strong circumstantial evidence that President George W. Bush’s mother, Barbara, is the illegitimate daughter of Aliester Crowley, the notorious and infamous Satanist. I am still researching this. With all of that in mind, is it any wonder our country is in the condition it is in?
Divine Judgment With More to Come!
On October 13th, 2007, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed SB 777 into law. This infamous bill opens the floodgates of perversion and filth into the public schools by promoting homosexual, transsexual, and bisexual indoctrination of school children. The law will go into effect on January 1st, 2008, and under that law, the following will be eliminated: 1. Textbooks and other instruction that portray marriage as only between a man and a woman. 2. Textbooks and other instruction that say people are born male or female (and not between). 3. Textbooks that leave out transsexual, bisexual, and homosexual historical figures. 4. Sex education and school assemblies that omit the option of hormone injections, or sex changes. 5. Homecoming king and queen contests that allow only boys to run for king and girls to run for queen. 6. Separate bathrooms for boys and girls. 7. The use of the terms “mom and dad” and “husband and wife.” (14)
Ten days after the bill was signed, all hell broke loose in California. On October 23rd, 2007, fires began to break out in southern California. Soon there were twenty fires burning, and they produced an inferno that would stagger the imagination. Dry winds of over eighty miles per hour fed the flames and spread them everywhere. Rich and lavish homes burst into flames and sent movie stars running to evacuate the area. It was like a blowtorch hitting Malibu. (15) One of the twenty fires was called the witch fire, and the winds were called the devil winds. As many as 350,000 homes were evacuated, and more than one million people were forced to evacuate and escape the walls of roaring flames. Many hundreds of lavish homes were reduced to ashes. (16) Newspaper headlines from coast to coast and even overseas declared: End of the World, Armageddon, and Hell on Earth! (17)
This fire was larger than many people imagined. Nothing could stop it until its work was done and its prey was reduced to smoldering ashes like Sodom and Gomorrah! Satellite pictures of the south in California revealed the magnitude of the disaster as the smoke rose up like a great furnace. The Almighty Saviour led me to Ezekiel 20:47-48 which reads as follows: “And say to the forest of the south, Hear the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will kindle a fire in thee, and it shall devour every green tree in thee, and every dry tree: the flaming fire shall not be quenched, and all faces from the south to the north shall be burned therein. And all flesh shall see that I the Lord have kindled it: it shall not be quenched.”
The complacent and pleasure-minded people of the United States are being warned of severe judgment to come if they do not repent. Fifty percent of the contiguous United States is in a condition of severe drought. (18) Recent reports have indicated that thirty-six states now face water shortages. (19) In Georgia, lakes are drying up, and the large city of Atlanta now has less than a ninety-day water supply and no plan for solving the problem. Officials have specifically stated that there is no backup plan if the faucets run dry! (20)
In the troubled city of New Orleans, it is quite a different story. In late October 2007, just before Halloween, heavy rains dropped over eight inches on that city in a matter of hours and flooded the streets with water over three feet high. (21) New Orleans has many other problems, not the least of which is the infestation of large swarms of killer bees that have taken up residence in and around the city. (22)
Everywhere in the world, there is great trouble. There was severe flooding in parts of Mexico at the beginning of November 2007, which displaced nearly a million people. (23) In Bangladesh, an unusual cyclone hit a heavily populated Moslem area and almost instantly killed 15,000 people. (24) Meanwhile, significant earthquakes with magnitudes of four or greater continue to shake the world with an average of over 300 per month. We also know that more and more volcanoes are waking up and erupting.
On November 18th, 2007, the United Nations’ panel of scientists issued their official report after an emergency meeting and came up with this conclusion: “Unless something is done about the radical climate changes right now, very soon the earth will lose one third of its plant and animal life.” (25) When I read the United Nations’ report, I immediately remembered Revelation 8:7, which reads as follows: “The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth; and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.” The remaining verses of Revelation chapter eight go on to mention the destruction of other portions of the creation, and the pattern remains the same; it is always one-third that is destroyed. This is the very number that the godless United Nations’ scientists came up with!
On November 11th, 2007, the principal deputy director of National Intelligence, Donald Kerr, told Congress that it is time for Americans to say goodbye to privacy. He also stated that it is time for the people of the United States to change their definition of privacy, and that it can no longer mean anonymity. (26) The “big brother” mentality of the emerging one-world government is openly showing itself as never before. Government cameras that interface with sophisticated computers can now photograph and assess a person so thoroughly that the computer can determine an individual’s exact height, weight, and gait DNA, which is a code for the way a person walks. Facial biometrics are also factored in to produce an individual digital code for every person. Thus, the surveillance system can easily pick out a person in a crowd and track that person. This system has been developed for the U.S. Government by Professor Rama Chellappa of the University of Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C. (27)
Everything is moving so quickly now as governments and religions unite. On October 18th, 2007, the New European Treaty was approved at Lisbon, Portugal. It is scheduled to be signed on the 13th day of December 2007, and it is to take effect and be in force as of January 1st, 2009. The treaty for this United States of Europe calls for: 1. One President over all twenty-seven nations of the European Union to be elected every two and one-half years. 2. One minister for all external affairs. 3. One universal police and justice system. (28)
As we watch the world uniting, we also are witnessing the combining of Mexico and Canada with the United States to form the North American Union. I have in front of me a garment label from a smock that is worn by personnel who work in nuclear refueling of aircraft carriers at Newport News, Virginia. The garment label shows a multi-colored continent of North America with the flags of the United States, Mexico, and Canada combined. (29)
On November 13th, 2007, a gathering of leaders from the Eastern Orthodox churches met with Pope Benedict who declared the following: 1. The Pope is the first and highest over all Orthodox patriarchs. 2. Rome is the first “Bench” or headquarters. 3. The Church of Rome will prevail and govern with love. Further meetings are scheduled for November 23rd, 2007. (30)
How closely are we being watched? In a previous newsletter, I reported that nuclear bombs had been moved across the United States by the United States Air Force in violation of the law. Now we have learned that the four military members that leaked the story to the public that the nuclear bombs were moved from Minot AFB to Barksdale AFB are all dead from mysterious and questionable causes. (31)
The Almighty and the Dollar!
It is no secret that the U.S. Dollar, which was once one of the hallmark currencies of the world, is in deep trouble. The “Bush wars” in Iraq and Afghanistan have now cost the United States 1.6 trillion dollars. (32) Meanwhile, there are continuously more and more homeless people on the streets of this erstwhile great nation. We have now learned that one out of every four homeless people is a veteran of our military, the majority of whom are women. (33) Who is going to fix the problems that we now face as a nation? Hillary Clinton seems to think she has all the answers, and I find it truly remarkable how God voices His disapproval of the various candidates. On November 12th, 2007, Hillary Clinton was making a speech at a news conference. When she finished speaking on that day after Veteran’s Day, four large American flags, all on separate stands, simultaneously fell down in front of her. Hillary commented that the bases for the flags must not have been heavy enough. (34) Are falling flags a sign of a falling country?
Flags are not the only things that are falling. On November 7th, 2007, General Motors Corporation reported a third-quarter loss of a whopping thirty-nine billion dollars. (35) In addition to the trouble with U.S. corporate losses, the International Monetary Fund released a report on October 17th, stating that the U.S. dollar is overvalued. On the other hand, the currency of Red China was praised and was said to be undervalued. (36) Japan and Red China, among other nations, have been dropping the U.S. dollar like a hot potato. Japan dumped 23 billion dollars worth of U.S. Treasury bonds, Red China dumped 14.2 billion, and Taiwan unloaded 5 billion of the unwanted U.S. dollars. (37)
On October 18th, the U.S. dollar dropped to a new low against the Euro currency of the thirteen-nation economic union of nations in Europe. (38) Warnings are out worldwide that the dollar is failing fast. Even the Canadian currency rose above the dollar and has stayed above it. Even after the Federal Reserve lowered the interest rate again, the dollar continued to slide and dive. (39)
As I look around me as I drive through different cities and towns, I see all of the empty factories and commercial buildings: and I wonder how such a great nation could fall so low. I see the countless homes for sale because of foreclosure, and I am amazed at this. One report stated that one in every six homeowners now faces foreclosure. Over one trillion dollars of sub-prime debt is now listed as toxic by the banks that loaned the money. (40) Are we now in that time that was foretold in the Bible? In James 5:1-8 we read as follows: “Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.”
These are perilous times as we go through the final days before the return of our Saviour. As we can see from the above Scripture verses, economic distress is one of the sure signs that we are in the last days. We also know that in the year 2011, just over three years from now, seventy-seven million people, known as the baby boom generation, will be trying to collect social security and Medicare payments. At that point, the system will be bankrupt unless something drastic happens.
In a Newsweek article dated April 18th, 2007, a satirical story mentioned that if twenty percent of the seventy-seven million baby boomers were dead by the year 2011, the system could remain solvent. (41) Sometimes there is an element of truth in satire, and sometimes satire reveals what truly goes on in corrupt minds. We must remember that those who are in high places are ruled by a dark master of shadowy light. Would anyone in high places be so corrupt as to want to reduce the population of the elderly and disabled? Hitler referred to them as “useless eaters.” We know that anyone over fifty years of age that goes to a medical doctor is going to be told that he or she needs to be taking numerous medications as a preventive program. Do the doctors understand everything about the drugs they are prescribing? How many doctors have personally done research on the drugs? Why are cancer, diabetes, and other diseases so common? Why are we importing food from Red China? Why are we being over salted, over sugared, and dosed with dangerous preservatives? Does some entity stand to gain from all of this? If we have massive hospitals, which are full of expensive equipment and serviced with a high-paid staff, do we not need to populate those hospitals and clinics? Why are new and strange viruses popping up? The answer to all of these questions is frighteningly obvious. The goal of the elitist Illuminists is to manage the population of the world any way they can while disguising their mass murdering as benevolent care. It is time for us to look to the Lord for help and to the many things He has provided for natural healing!
The Rapid Rising of Strange Powers!
Another great sign that we are in the last days is the rising of the kings of the East. Once the kings of the East or Orient rise up, we see a triumviral power, which is a power of three unclean spirits, rise up to lead the world to Armageddon, the last great battle according to Revelation 16:12-16. We know that the kings of the East have been rising up in a continuous crescendo of power. Both Russia and China are kings of the East, for they are situated east of the Euphrates River, which has always been the natural and spiritual boundary between east and west.
On November 5th, 2007, Bloomberg News Service featured a story that revealed the rise of the PetroChina Company to over one trillion dollars. This Chinese petroleum company surpassed Exxon Mobil and General Electric combined. (42)
On November 6th, 2007, another strange and unprecedented thing happened. Pope Benedict XVI met with the Islamic King of Saudi Arabia at the Vatican. King Abdullah presented the Pope with a golden sword studded with jewels. (43) It was the meeting of the two largest religions in the world. The Pope and the King spoke privately for about one-half hour, and no one knows what they talked about. A sword is a symbol of war, and Revelation 6:4 mentions a great sword in the last days as follows: “And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.”
On November 17th, shortly after the meeting with the Pope, OPEC held a special summit meeting regarding what to do about the falling American dollar. It was determined that if OPEC would reject the dollar, the economy of the United States would collapse. (44) Will they do it, forcing the United States to submit to a new “Holy Roman Empire?” At this point, I must remind everyone that the Pope is German, and amazing possibilities open up when we realize that German Chancellor Angela Merkel is likely the biological daughter of Adolph Hitler by artificial insemination, as revealed in a previous newsletter. On August 30th, 2007, Angela Merkel was named “the most powerful woman in the world” by Forbes Magazine. (45)
In closing, I want to thank all of you who have supported this endtime prophetic ministry during the year 2007. The next issue will begin a new year and our twenty-seventh year of publication. As always, we welcome your prayer requests. God bless and keep you all in the coming year. Grace and peace be multiplied unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
