America – A Place Where Demons Gather!
“And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the Great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.”Revelation 18:2
“Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.”Isaiah 13:6-11
“The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.”Matthew 13:41-43
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will look with spiritual eyes of discernment at a world in rapid transition as it moves at breakneck speed toward the day of final judgment. As that day approaches, we see instability and chaos everywhere. It seems that there is no soundness in anything. Outrageous things are happening repeatedly as the spiritual sickness of depravity prevails in a global society that ignores the one true Almighty Saviour. We are now in a time when it seems that the whole world is about to break out in a final global war. America is approaching its darkest days, even though brief manufactured upturns feed the optimists with false hope. These are the strangest of times, and it is because evil is gathering and uniting together in a realm that humanity does not fully understand.
There is an infernal gathering of evil spirits as the end approaches. As governments, societies, economies, and religions continue to rapidly change, we see Satan handcrafting his new antichrist society and one-world government. There is a strange force at work and a power that continues to contort everything that is decent and moral into a grotesque aberration. There is a weird ambiance, especially in America, and it is so intense that you can almost smell the brimstone in the air. This is caused by the gathering of countless demons for a designated purpose.
We know that countless evil spirits gathered at the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus in an attempt to destroy him when he came to this world the first time. Now, in these final days before the Saviour’s return, we see a massive gathering of demons once again, and all hell is breaking loose. Here let it be noted that witches and occultists refer to their meeting together as The Gathering. This is in reference to the spirits that gather with them. If you have ever wondered why things are the way they are, you have your answer. There are always evil spirits behind the evil activities of man.
Truly, we are at the very doors of eternity. You will dwell somewhere forever. Have you surrendered your life to the Lord Jesus Christ? He will hear you and accept you. Do it now, before the sun rises for the last time.
Are We on the Eve of World War III?
Those who believe the Bible know that a third world war is inevitable. In Matthew 24:6 we read of numerous wars leading up to the final world war as follows: “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars; see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.” In Revelation 16:13-14, we read of the final world war as follows: “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirit of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”
Thus, we see that there are a series of wars leading up to the final great war at the end of the world. We also see that there are three unclean spirits, which are a triumvirate power from hell, that foment this last of wars. Can any thinking and discerning person doubt that the intrigue we are now seeing in the Middle East, Russia, and numerous other areas of the world is due to the activity of the three unclean spirits? These demonic wars are leading to ultimate utter destruction!
The current ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which were fomented by George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and others of that ilk, are no doubt under the direct governance of the three unclean spirits mentioned above. There is something very wrong going on, because the cause is fictitious and ambiguous. Perhaps that is why twenty-two thousand of our American veterans called the suicide hotline during the year of 2007. (1) We also know that 28,283 veterans have had their medical claims denied by the Defense Finance and Accounting Service, because there is such a backlog of claims. (2) Our U.S. Government has found the solution to a growing backlog list: Deny and ignore the claims!
The armed forces of the United States are already stretched out thin, and now a horrifying war with Iran seems to be looming on the horizon. Only a short time ago, Iran was operating 3,000 uranium-enriching centrifuges. On July 27th, 2008, it was reported that Iran now has 6,000 such centrifuges, and thus they have doubled their capacity to produce the ingredients to manufacture horrifying atomic bombs. (3) Meanwhile, on July 21st, 2008, the United States, Britain, and France launched a blockade exercise against Iran. This exercise was called Operation Brimstone! (4) It was an operation carried out by a triumviral power, these three nations, with their massive ships occupying the Persian Gulf. In the light of all this activity, why does the United States continue to export countless millions of dollars worth of goods to Iran? These exports include rifles, rifle parts, aircraft launching gear, and deck arrestors! This was reported by the Associated Press on July 8th, 2008. (5)
As wars and rumours of wars progress, there are strange happenings in the Grand Palais in Paris, France. In July 2008, French President Nicolas Sarkozy hosted the formation of a new and secretive organization called the Union for the Mediterranean. The organization is also called Club Med. This union of forty-two nations is being called a “peace organization” for countries located around the Mediterranean Sea but extended to EU members after protests from Germany. In a Bloomberg News photo of the event, three men have their hands locked together in a power-of-three, or triumviral salute. (6) These three men are Palestine’s Mahmoud Abbas, Israel’s Ehud Olmert, and French President Nicolas Sarkozy. We must remember that Daniel, chapter seven, tells us of the four beasts that rose up from the Great Sea (Mediterranean) as world empires. They were Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome. The third, the Grecian Empire, was launched by Alexander the Great of Macedonia in Northern Greece. We also know that French President Nicolas Sarkozy recently visited Greece and that his grandfather was a Greek Jew born in the same area in Macedonia where Alexander the Great was born. Now Sarkozy is unifying the Mediterranean nations. We must remember that in the very last days before our Saviour returns, there will arise a new composite beast out of the Mediterranean Sea. We are told of this in Revelation 13:1-2 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.” Truly, we are living in the days of this prophetic fulfillment!
Now another kind of bear has risen up, the Russian Bear! Under the direction of three Russian billionaires, Viktor Vekselberg, Mikhail Fridman, and Leonid Blavatnik, Russians have been buying large portions of London, England! There are now 300,000 Russians living in London. The three Russian billionaires, a triumviral power of three, own a consortium called AAR, which owns fifty percent of TNK-BP, the giant oil company also known as BP. (7) While all of this is going on, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin announced on August 4th, 2008, that it is time for Russia to go back to Cuba! Putin said, “We need to reestablish positions on Cuba and in other countries.” (8) American Air Force General Norton Schwartz issued a stern response to Russia when he said, “Russia would cross a red line for the United States of America if it were to base nuclear-capable bombers in Cuba.” (9) This scenario is all too reminiscent of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, which held the world in a state of horrifying suspense for thirteen days during the month of October in that year. The Russians had placed missiles with nuclear warheads in Cuba, but eventually they backed down. Will they back down again? It is not likely this time!
On August 7th, 2008, the night before the Olympics began, President Saakashvili of the nation of Georgia ordered an all-out, full scale attack on Tskhinvali, the capital of South Ossentia, Russia. Without provocation, the Georgians attacked this Russian city with aerial bombardments and ground attacks against civilian targets, such as residential areas, hospitals, and the university. Initially, 1,500 civilians were killed in this vicious attack. Artillery and aerial bombardments continued until Tskhinvali, the provincial capital, was without water, food, electricity, and gas. Russia anticipated the attack and retaliated fiercely by attacking Georgia with a large-scale invasion of that country. Georgia is an outpost of U.S. and NATO forces and is located on the border of the Russian Federation. South Ossetia also contains strategic oil and gas pipeline routes. (10) The London Daily Mail is calling this the “pipeline war”, because it is through this region that much of Europe’s oil is piped. (11) There is much propaganda regarding this series of events, and the American news media is majoring on the evil of the Russian response and not blaming Georgia for starting this bloody war. There is much circumstantial evidence that President Bush and leaders in Israel encouraged the attack on Russia.
Now that the United States and Poland signed a missile shield deal, Russia is threatening a military response against the United States. (12) Will President Bush succeed in getting us into a war with the Russians before he leaves office? God help us during these perilous times!
Strange Spirits in Washington!
Every witch and occultist understands full-well that the United States of America is operating on occult power. The stories about the White House being haunted are true according to Hillary Clinton, who once lived there and would like to live there again. It has been reported that at night a long-dead usher is still turning off the lights and that ghosts of doormen often appear. In a 1996 interview, Hillary Clinton had this to say, “There is something about the White House at night that makes you just feel like you are summoning up the spirits of all the people who have lived there, and worked there, and walked through the halls there. It’s neat. It can be a little creepy.” (13) Would Barack Hussein Obama likewise enjoy this atmosphere of hell that pervades the executive mansion?
Barack Hussein Obama is a man of many titles. He is being called World ‘Citizen’ Obama, the Transnational Man, and a man of change. (14) I find it interesting that Obama is left-handed, yet he always uses his right hand when doing his infamous Nazi salute. In fact, both candidates, Obama and McCain, are left-handed. (15) There is nothing wrong with being left-handed; many people are, but perhaps there is something spiritual here. The Latin word for left is sinister. Ancient Romans believed that left-handed people had an evil spirit, and mothers would force left-handed children to use their right hands by tying their left hand behind their backs. From this, we have the saying “I could do that with one hand tied behind my back.” The Latin word for right is dexter. When ancient Romans saw someone that could use both right and left hands equally well, they still would not acknowledge the left hand. They described that person as one who is ambidextrous, which literally means both rights. At any rate, we have two presidential candidates who are doing a sinister work and are sinister-handed!
Who is Barack Obama, and who does he think he is? On his recent tour of Europe, he drew a crowd of 200,000 people near the Victory Column in Berlin, Germany. From the signs and placards that were being held up, it was obvious that a large percentage of the massive audience were homosexuals and lesbians. Obama held his right arm up at a forty-five degree angle, and thousands began to cheer and reach out to him with their arms extended as if they were praising some sort of god. (16)
Barack Obama also thinks of himself as the lord of the seas, as was revealed in his victory speech after he became the front runner in the Democratic Party. Obama declared, “It is a great turning point in history – generations from now we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when, among other wonders, the rise of the oceans began to slow.” (17)
Obama’s wife recently made some amazing comments regarding her husband. She said, “President Obama will be a stern taskmaster. He will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism… that you come out of your isolation… Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.” (18) When I heard that word taskmaster, I remembered Exodus 3:7, which reads as follows: “And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows.” I also thought of Daniel 8:23-25, which says, “And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.”
Barack Obama travels the world in his Boeing 757, which is equipped like a flying palace. It is much more spacious than Air Force One. Obama’s plane is called O-Force One. (19) When Obama was in Jordan, he had King Abdullah II personally drive him to the Temple of Hercules in a gleaming Mercedes 600 automobile. Obama wanted to walk among the ruins of the ancient temple, amphitheatre, Odeon, and Nymphaeum. Obama then made a speech among the ancient ruins, dating back from 161 to 180 AD. (20)
The Democratic National Convention is scheduled for August 24th through August 31st in Denver, Colorado. In the world of witchcraft and the occult, Denver is considered to be a sacred city, and it is known as the place where east meets west. The authorities in Denver are expecting many protesters during the convention, and they have converted a city-owned warehouse into a detention center. This large warehouse contains many chain-link cages to hold those who protest against Obama and company. (21)
Barack Obama has also launched a program designed to convince anti-abortionists that he is the man for them. Obama officially stated that while he staunchly defends abortion rights, he also said, “I strongly back a woman’s decision to carry a pregnancy to term.” (22) In other words, Obama is saying that if you want to kill your baby, he supports that; and if you want to bring your baby to birth, he doesn’t care!
Obama has claimed to be a “Christian”, but he is a Moslem, who came from a family of Moslems and has siblings who are Moslems. Here let it be noted that the Bible tells us in Revelation 20:4 about those who were beheaded for the witness of Jesus. What religion is preoccupied with beheading? Obviously Islam, known as the Moslem religion, is. The Obama family is a strange one. Barack’s father was married four times, and there are numerous half-brothers and half-sisters. Mark Ndesandjo is the son of Barack’s father and his third wife. Mark lives in Red China, and he has the important job of coordinating all Chinese exports to the United States. (23) In other words, Barack Obama’s brother is the one who arranges for American buyers to fill America with Chinese junk, defective merchandise, and tainted food.
One more thing that should be remembered about Barack Obama is that he is a dyed-in-the-wool socialist. I remember the words of the erstwhile Soviet Premier, Nikita Khrushchev, who said, “We can’t expect people to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving doses of socialism until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism.”
A World-Wide Witches’ Spell
Late on the witches’ sabat of Lammas, also Lughnasaid, which is the sabat of soul harvest, a total eclipse of the sun occurred. (24) Countless millions of people watched this ominous event of August 1st, 2008, and reported an eerie presence about it. Many people were gasping and awe-stricken by this event. We know that Luke 21:25 tells us of signs in the heavens, and it reads as follows: “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring.” As Christians we believe these are signs from God, but the Illuminists, witches and astrologers believe they are omens; and they act accordingly. The occultists advise the leaders of nations today just as they advised the kings and emperors of old. To this day, astrologers tell leaders of nations and conspiracies when to start wars and political projects. The ancient gods and goddesses are actually demonic spirits that play the game with their superstitious human stooges. With that in mind, and with Mars, Venus, and Mercury beginning to form a triangle in the western sky near sunset; it is no wonder that war broke out between Russia and Georgia on the night of August 7th, 2008.
In addition to the above, occultists and witches have believed from time immemorial that an eclipse indicates that someone of world-importance has died. Strangely enough, during this same time frame, the former Soviet writer and dissident Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn died.
On the date of 08-08-08 at 8:08 P.M., the Olympic Cauldron of Zeus was ignited from the torch that was ignited by rays of the so-called sun-god. This is witchcraft of the first magnitude. Here let it be noted that the original Olympic Games in Greece, which took place centuries ago, were done in the nude. According to National Geographic Magazine, it was a time of “naked sports and pagan partying.” Prostitution was extremely widespread, and pederasty took place. (25) The 2008 Olympics Committee had a new kind of problem, as numerous athletes had to be gender-tested to determine if they were truly men or women. (26) These games are satanic from start to finish!
Another Sign in the Heavens!
If we look westward, just as the sun is setting, we can see three bright objects in the sky. These will be visible through the first half of September 2008. The objects, as previously mentioned, are Mercury, Venus, and Mars. These objects will form a perfect isosceles triangle on September 1st. Then, something very peculiar begins to happen. Mars and Venus begin to move closer and closer to each other. In the occult world, Mars means war, and Venus means erotic love or false peace. Then on September 11th, 2008, exactly seven years to the date after the World Trade Center was attacked, Mars will appear to slam into Venus. The two objects do not actually collide, but they appear to as a sign in the heavens. As I seek the Lord in watching unto prayer, I sense a great and deep foreboding that seems to come from everywhere. Those who have binoculars can watch this event at sunset in the western sky. What great event is the Lord warning us about? Soon we will know!
Spirits of Metamorphosis!
The word metamorphosis means “change or transformation by a spiritual force”. Our nation and the world has been slowly changing for a long time and now is changing rapidly, and it is not for the better. Religion is one of the most noticeable and dynamic areas of change, and as people have gone farther and farther from God, we now find that masses of people are completely void of discernment. One example of this was mentioned briefly in the August 2008 Last Trumpet when I exposed Todd Bentley as a demon-possessed fraud. I have been condemned by some people for denouncing Bentley and have received hate mail in his defense. I have a sound byte from one of Todd Bentley’s meetings, in which he says the following: “God told me to grab that lady’s crippled legs and bang them up and down on the platform like a baseball bat. I walked up and grabbed her legs and started to go bam, and then I banged her legs up and down on the platform. I asked God, ‘Why is the power not moving?’ And God said, ‘That’s because you haven’t kicked that woman in the face.’”
Another account regarding Bentley comes to us from Canada, where Bentley was invited to speak in a large Pentecostal church. This church had a large air conditioning system with ceiling vents. Bentley was told that he could not turn on the air conditioner, because a large number of pigeons had nested in the air conditioner unit, so the system was down until the problem could be corrected. Todd Bentley went over and turned the A/C unit on anyway, and pigeon feathers began to pour out of the ceiling vents and float downward upon the congregation. Bentley tried to tell the congregation that it was a miracle of angel feathers floating down upon them. He was kicked out of the church as a liar and deceiver and told to never come back! Thank God for people who have enough sense to see through this human devil! Sadly, multitudes of ministers, especially from Europe, are flocking to Bentley’s meetings. We are that far gone!
People are so easily deceived in these last days, and our government is well aware of this condition. In fact, many people still think we live in a free country. Here let it be noted that there are now one million American citizens on the terrorist watch list, which is controlled by the Department of Homeland Security. (27) The Department of Homeland Security has now been empowered to seize at will any and all electronic devices from passengers traveling to the United States. (28)
Sadly, we have become a nation that is far too dependent on electronic devices, and there is now strong evidence that the millions of cell phones operating at any given time are inducing severe and sharp lightening strikes. This is happening because cell phones are electromagnetic field carriers, which make them strong conductors. Thunderbolts are attracted to such things, and the outcome can be deadly! (29) There are now three billion people in this world using cell phones, and many of them are in use for long periods of time. Intense research has already indicated that the radiation from these phones induce brain-damaging tumors of the auditory nerve. (30) Cell phones give off microwave radiation, which stresses the endothelial cells and damages the blood-brain barrier, which stops harmful substances in the blood from entering the brain. (31)
This last generation is one that is hooked on electronic devices in every avenue of life. Nearly everyone is cooking with microwave ovens, which produce cancer-causing free radicals in their food. Microwave ovens have a magnetron, which is a device that generates waves at about 2.45 gigahertz. The waves of radiation interact with the food, and the energy changes the polarity from positive to negative with each cycle of the wave. This happens millions of times per second, causing the molecules in the food to rotate and cause friction. It is this friction that produces the heat that cooks the food. The vitamin and nutritional content of the food is completely deformed as molecules are forcefully torn apart. In the laboratory this is called “structural isomerism.” (32)
Satan is having a field day with people and their electronic devices. The new iPhone 3G is being advertised in Australia in a very blasphemous way. The following words are found in the advertisement: “The mobile device dubbed the Jesus Phone is about to have its second coming. The iPhone 3G, the new incarnation of Apple’s first foray into the mobile handset business, will go on sale in 22 countries.” (33) This is clearly a mockery of our Saviour. We should also remember that the symbol for the Apple Computer company is an apple with one bite out of it, representing the fall of mankind into sin. We also know that the first Apple computers to hit the market in the early 1980’s sold for 666 dollars.
On June 29th, 2008, the Associated Press released a story of a bizarre experiment that may now be taking place in Meyrin, Switzerland. The largest atom-smasher ever built was to be switched on in August 2008. It will be ramped up to full capacity over a period of several months. This atomic collider cost 5.8 billion dollars to construct and is being called the largest scientific experiment in the history of the world. It is seven times more powerful than the Fermilab in Chicago, Illinois. The massive device is located 330 feet underground and is 17 miles in circumference. The device is being used to search for “dark energy” and additional dimensions. Some physicists believe that the device could create a black hole that would engulf the earth or change the earth in other ways forever. Dr. Walter L. Wagner, a physicist, said that a safety report regarding the device has several major flaws, and he is frantically trying to stop the project. He filed a lawsuit to halt the activation of the device, but his warnings have been rejected by the U.S. Government. On June 24th, 2008, the U.S. Justice Department lawyers, representing the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation, filed a motion to dismiss the case. (34) What kind of reaction will this device bring to the delicate balance that keeps the earth in place? The Bible warns us that something will shake the earth out of orbit some day. In Isaiah 13:13 we read as follows: “Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.” That day is rapidly approaching! Where will you spend eternity?
In closing, I want to sincerely thank all of you who support this end time prophetic ministry. I pray you will be blessed exceedingly. Remember to send your prayer requests as they will be individually taken to the throne of God by our prayer teams. Grace and peace be multiplied unto you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
