The Day When Reality Strikes!
“Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him. But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.”Ecclesiastes 8:11-13
“Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.”Psalm 2:1-5
“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 use our God-given knowledge and discernment to look at our nation, which is now in a condition such as it never was before. We are living during a time of change, transition, and metamorphosis; and it is not for the good. We are seeing a major shift in the prevailing spiritual wind, which is bringing with it the very essence of antichrist as never before. For a very long time, we have been watching major erosion and deterioration of all of the old and established institutions, morals, and spiritual fiber that brought America to its erstwhile greatness. These foundations are rapidly being pulled away, and they are disappearing without a trace among our new, younger society. The youth of our nation have no reference point to the past and no index of the future as they wander through the corridors of antichrist and illuministic deception. There is such confusion and so many mixed signals that most people will not utilize the mental energy to even think about what is happening to them. We have been told continually that things are not that bad and everything is going to get better. The current American society has never known hard times, and most look at you in disbelief if you tell them hard times are coming.
When people refuse to acknowledge reality, there is nothing left for them but deception, and most people will never wake up until reality hits them squarely in the face. The Almighty is now bringing trouble upon our land as a wake-up call. We are a nation in trouble, and we are stricken with one disaster after another! We are hearing some politicians say, “God is on our side,” but how can that be true if we are not on God’s side?
We know that very soon the ultimate reality is going to hit everyone squarely in the face. The return of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, will bring Judgment Day, and everyone will be there. Judgment Day will be a day when all deception, concealments, and cover-ups will be gone. It will be a day of stark reality for everyone. Then comes the reality that you will spend eternity somewhere. You will be either in the Kingdom of Heaven or in a state of eternal damnation. If you are reading this, there is still time to repent, and the Saviour will hear you. He will not turn you away! Do it now, while the clock is still ticking!
What Happens When an Economy Dies?
What is the current reality of the economy of the United States of America? When we drive from city to city, we see numerous closed and empty businesses and factories. We see the countless “for sale” signs and the shaggy lawns of houses that have been abandoned to foreclosure. We see the trail of thieves and vandals leaving their ugly scars upon once beautiful neighborhoods. We are losing half a million family-supporting manufacturing jobs every year, totaling more than three million such jobs since George Bush took office. The median income for American families, adjusted for inflation, has been dropping continually. Forty-seven million Americans have no health insurance, and for those who do have it, the cost has doubled. (1) Countless millions of Americans are hopelessly in debt and have no money that isn’t spent before they earn it. Americans are not managing money, they are juggling debt. The average credit card interest for the year 2007 was 19%, and mailboxes are stuffed with new credit card offers every business day. Banks and other institutions are now mailing one billion credit card offers every month! It is also a sad fact that with interest and late charges, many people are paying 33% interest and fees on their balances! (2)
In California, foreclosures on homes were up 261% over last year, and the problem is getting worse. (3) When people are in such bondage and are oppressed by the banksters, judgment will surely come on the entire system. We read of this in James 5:1-6 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.”
We are now seeing the very fulfillment of Bible prophecy as the Almighty is sending measured judgment on the corrupt banking system of the United States of America. We must remember that the death of the U.S. economy will bring forth the final stages of antichrist domination and the final fulfillment of prophecy. We know that in all of recorded history, no government has ever outlived its economy. When the economy dies, so does the government, and a new one rises in its place. The new world order will have an entirely new and different economy with electronic currency and wealth control that will enslave all humanity, but Almighty God will cut it short! Can any thinking person doubt that this is happening before our very eyes?
On July 22nd, 2008, the banking giant Wachovia reported a loss of 8.9 billion dollars and cut 6,350 workers. (4) On August 19th, 2008, the London Times reported that the former International Monetary Fund chief, Professor Kenneth Rogoff, warned of imminent high-profile casualties among American banks. (5) Then came the Federal bailout of the mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which is another heavy burden on the taxpayers of this country. To facilitate this rescue of a failed mortgage system, the ceiling on the national debt had to be raised to an unthinkable amount of $10.6 trillion dollars. (6)
On August 19th, 2008, the London Daily Telegraph reported that the M3 growth rate aggregates fell from almost 19% to 2.1% in three months, going below the rate of inflation. (7) M3 is the money supply index which our U.S. government had traditionally freely published, but recently refused to do so! Something very big, with lasting tragic effects, was about to happen!
On September 11th, 2008, exactly seven years after the twin towers of the erstwhile World Trade Center were destroyed, a chain reaction of events began to take place, which will change our nation forever and will force a new antichrist economy to emerge. On that day of September 11th, 2008, the giant Washington Mutual Bank fell below 2 dollars per share as the bank reported a 33.3 billion dollar loss. (8) Four days later the Washington Mutual stock was declared to be “junk” by Standard and Poor’s! (9) Conditions were soon to grow much worse!
The wealth of our erstwhile great nation once rested on five giant banking pillars that were so large and powerful that they were thought to be invincible. Those five banks were Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, Bear Stearns, and Lehman Brothers. At this present time, only two of these are left. Bear Stearns was the first to go into insolvency. Then Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers fell into bankruptcy almost simultaneously. I was shocked and stunned as I watched all of this begin to happen. I had just returned from New York City where my wife and I went to pray and do research. We took the Staten Island ferry across New York Harbor, and as we passed the Statue of Liberty, I could see the numerous unmarked black helicopters circling the harbor. The U.S. Coast Guard gun ships were positioned there as well. Once in Manhattan, we walked up Whitehall Street to Broadway, and as we neared Wall Street, there was the landmark that I had seen many times before. In the median where the two streets come together is a massive bronze bull, marking the entrance to the financial district. The Lord reminded me of the golden calf that the children of Israel danced around in a naked frenzy. It struck me that Wall Street and all of its banking houses that have been oppressing the people America and the world have been dancing in a naked frenzy and that soon the ground would open and swallow them up as well.
We continued on to Federal Hall where the masses of people gathered and looked across the street at the banking giants with shock and disbelief when the crash came in 1929. Then the great depression hit and paralyzed our nation. Federal Hall was the first capitol building of the United States, and it was there that George Washington gave the first Presidential inaugural address. As I looked across the street, I saw the New York Stock Exchange and Rockefeller’s personal bank, the Bank of New York, next to it. Both of these massive buildings had black iron fences set up in the streets with special police and guards armed with high-powered automatic weapons positioned about every ten or fifteen feet. A strange feeling came over me and I felt compelled to pray. We walked over to the giant Lehman Brothers building and sat down directly in front of it. I remembered the history of this financial pillar that was immensely successful since the days of the illuminist Jacob Schiff. I remembered the merger of this bank with Kuhn Loeb and Co., and I also recalled that this bank financed the communists Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin and bankrolled the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. The evil in this bank was beyond comprehension, and there is so much more infamy in its history that cannot be mentioned for lack of space on these pages. As I sat there, the Spirit of the Lord came over me, and I began to pray, “Lord, thou knowest what they have done, what they are doing, and what they intend to do. Bring them down quickly, O Lord; let them fall into the hand of thy righteous judgment.”
On Monday, September 15th, 2008, the mighty Lehman Brothers went into bankruptcy with debts of 613 billion dollars. (10) Merrill Lynch also went under and had to find a buyer for what was left of it. When I heard that the mighty Merrill Lynch became insolvent, I remembered their television advertisement stating, “Merrill Lynch is God.”
On September 16th, 2008, the insurance giant AIG, American International Group, was facing a financial crisis as its stock went into a dive of 61%. This caused the shock waves on Wall Street, causing a drop of over 500 points in one day. (11) It was a near crash that was averted only when the U.S. Government bailed out AIG, which put the American taxpayers into deeper debt, involving countless billions of dollars. Many people are losing their retirement funds partially or completely. All of this negative activity has also caused every major stock exchange in Europe to plunge, (12) and some experts say we are very close to a worldwide depression. Recently, financial expert Wilbur Ross, CEO of WL. Ross Co., recently stated that it is likely that one thousand banks will close in the next several months. (13)
It is a sad fact that our national debt as of September 11th, 2008, was $9,695,974,762,677.63. (14) It will soon be over ten trillion dollars. How large is that debt? We know that light travels at a speed of approximately 186,000 miles per second. Thus, light traveling in a straight line could circle the earth seven and one-half times per second. At that speed, light would travel six trillion miles in one year. Our national debt, at nearly ten trillion dollars, is truly astronomical, and it will never be paid. When our Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke, was asked where he invests his personal money, he admitted that much of it was in Canadian Treasury bonds! (15)
The Rise of Strange Forces!
It is a Presidential election year in the United States, and strange forces are at work both in our country and elsewhere in the world. There are two predominant forces rising at this time: one is radical, militant feminism, and the other is Islam, the Moslem religion. In Germany, a land where Barack Obama is greatly admired, Chancellor Angela Merkel has once again been named “the most powerful woman in the world” by Forbes Magazine. (16) As revealed in a previous issue of this newsletter, Angela Merkel is likely the biological daughter of Adolph Hitler by artificial insemination. This was discovered in records by the Russian doctor in charge of the project. Merkel loves the militant music of Wagner, such as “The Ride of the Valkieri”, just as Hitler did. She even looks like Hitler except for the mustache. This is the woman who has been and is the driving force that is uniting the European Union. She is very militant and determined in her efforts.
In the United States a strange feministic spirit has recently arisen in the person of Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin. Many people have been deceived by this woman who presents herself as a combination of a “hockey mom and pit bull.” The Illuminati is using this woman, who loves to shoot not only rifles but also high-powered automatic weapons. She makes bold speeches, even threatening to get tough with Russia and go to war with them if necessary. She plainly stated this to anchor Charlie Gibson on the World News Tonight show as mentioned on CNN on September 12, 2008. (17) Palin also made it clear that God ordered us to go to war with Iraq. She is echoing the words of George Bush when he said, “I am driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, ‘George, go and fight these terrorists in Afghanistan,’ and I did. And then God would tell me, ‘George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq,’ and I did.” Palin made similar statements about “God’s war” while attending the Wasilla Assembly of God Church. (18) According to I Peter 3:4, a woman is to have “a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.” There are very few of those women left in our country, but they are the ones who are powerful in prayer, and God’s hand is upon them.
Wherever Sarah Palin goes, she draws much larger crowds than McCain. The contest has taken on strange contrasts as Palin eclipses McCain in popularity.
The other great force that is rising up, not only worldwide but especially in the United States, is Islam, the Moslem religion. In Chechnya, President Ramzan Kadyrov will soon inaugurate the largest mosque in Europe. This mosque will accommodate 10,000 worshippers. (19) Such super mosques are springing up rapidly world-wide. Sharia courts, which are special courts that administer Moslem laws and punishments, have been set up throughout England and are honored by the British Government. (20) Moslems are being given special privileges everywhere, and this religion is a rising force that is rapidly seizing the world. Could this Islamic force seize control of the United States?
The September 1st, 2008, issue of Newsweek Magazine featured a story entitled: “So What If He Were Muslim.” The article points out the Muslim roots of Barack Hussein Obama. (21) It is a fact that Obama comes from a Moslem family, grew up with Moslems, and attended a Moslem extremist school as a child and seems to have the backing of many prominent Moslems. Obama gave his acceptance speech from a stage that replicated an ancient Greek Temple as if he were some kind of god. (22) We also know that according to Federal Election Commission records, some of the massive amount of campaign money raised by Obama has come from radical Moslem extremist groups that are under active investigation for terror financing. These contributions have been accepted and not returned. One donor was Jamal M. Barzinji, who was investigated for the 9/11 attacks, as was Obama’s top Muslim advisor, who recently resigned from Obama’s campaign. (23) Why are Islamic extremists and terrorists supporting Obama for President of the United States? Do they know something about him that we don’t know? Is there a Moslem heart beating inside of Barack Hussein Obama?
We can most assuredly say that Obama is a Moslem, because he admitted it by mistake in an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC News. When Stephanopoulos said, “But John McCain said the same thing about questioning your faith,” Obama replied with the following words: “……You’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. And you’re absolutely right that that has not come up.” At that point, Stephanopoulos tried to correct him by saying, “Christian faith?” Obama quickly replied, “Christian faith.” (24)
Occult Forces in Overdrive!
On September 22nd, 2008, we will enter a strange time of occult power that continues through October 31st, which is Halloween. The many thousands of witches practicing their craft in the United States and Europe know what this means, and they are trying to change the world with their spells and rituals during this time. This September 22nd is their sabat of Mabon, which is the festival of the “Dark Mother” or the Crone. It is a time when waxing darkness is celebrated. That same day of the autumnal equinox is celebrated as the witches’ Thanksgiving, called Harvest Home. The period of time between September 22nd and October 31st is a time of great spiritual mischief, and only a few days later is Election Day. I mention all of this because the United States of American has been given over to witchcraft, and thus, the people who involve themselves with it are without protection and are subject to its influence. The Harry Potter books and movies have contributed much to the proliferation of evil spirits even though many churches defend these materials. We have now learned that Janet K. Rowling is number one billionaire at the top of the Forbes list. (25) No Christian should have any involvement with any such things and should especially avoid Halloween. It is the Devil’s business and it is serious. It is no joke! Wiccan witchcraft is the force behind the forces that are destroying our country!
Much could be said about the moral decay in our nation, but one example indicates how far gone we are. The state of California is no longer recognizing brides and grooms. The new formula is, “Do you, ‘Party A’, take ‘Party B’ to be legally bound in union until dissolution do you part?” Since the California Supreme Court overturned the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, certificates of marriage have been modified to read “Party A and Party B.” In one case, the Placer County Clerk’s Office denied a marriage license, because the minister altered it to read “bride and groom.” The license was sent back to the minister who officiated at the wedding with the following attached statement: “Does not comply with California State registration laws.” (26) California will see God’s wrath soon!
Illuministic Health Mismanagement!
In a recent report by Medical News Today, it was stated that 79 million Americans have medical bills that they cannot pay. (27) Many of these bills are large, and people are being brought to poverty and homelessness because of it! According to USA Today, drug prices are up 100% and some as much as 1,000%. (28) We have a shameful and corrupt health care system in our country.
We have now learned that the American Academy of Pediatrics is actively promoting the use of statin drugs for children as young as eight years of age. Statin drugs are known to damage muscles, including the heart, and to cause fatigue. (29) Why do doctors not know how to make children healthy without giving them pills? There are only two possible answers to that: either they are very ignorant or very evil!
Something is very wrong with the establishment “health care” system in America. We have runaway epidemics of diabetes, autism, hypertension, cancer, and so on. The following words were submitted to me by a certified natural health professional or CNHP: “Dr. Robert Mendelsohn often criticized modern medicine for its sanctimonious doctrine. He argued that doctors are the priests who dispense holy water in the form of inoculations to ritually initiate our loyalty into the larger medical industry. Dr. Richard Moskowitz agrees. ‘Vaccines have become sacraments of our faith in biotechnology. Their efficacy and safety are widely seen as self-evident and needing no further proof.’ Others see a link between vaccinations and satanic rituals of witchcraft, where animals are sacrificed and their organs brewed in a hellish concoction of horrid substances: voodoo medicine by 21st century mad scientists. Sadly, our children are their unwilling subjects as society is slowly devoured by their insatiable appetite for human experimentation.”
We have now learned that the Food and Drug Administration has approved zapping lettuce, spinach, and other greens with radiation. I am drawing upon forty-five years experience as an avid student of chemistry and physics when I say that radiation breaks down and disassembles organic compounds into free radicals and destroys all nutritional value of food. We should also note that the radioactive waste that is used to irradiate food may kill bacteria, but not viruses. (30) Truly, we live in a polluted land, and I pray that God will give us wisdom and faith.
Final Warnings From Above!
Almighty God is speaking loudly and clearly, but are the people of America listening? In recent weeks we have been hit by hurricanes and major tropical storms, and there is a message from the Creator in them. We know that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration uses alphabetical order to pick names at random for the sequential naming of hurricanes and tropical storms. Without a doubt, God is acting in accordance with the meanings of these names to send us a message!
When Hurricane Gustav hit our country, it was no small storm, and it left a considerable amount of damage in certain areas. The name Gustav comes from the Old Norse and means “staff of the gods.” In the old Norse religion there was a trinity, or three primary gods, named Wodin (Odin), Thor, and Frey. From those three words we derive the words Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. The high priest in the Old Norse, or Viking temple was called the “gouda.” This man held a staff in his hand as he stood before the three gods in the shadowy temple with only cauldrons of fire and torches for light. That staff was called a “Gustav.” When the priest lifted it and pounded the floor three times, it meant that the gods had decreed whatever was to be done.
After Hurricane Gustav had come and gone, there were two more hurricanes to quickly follow. Hurricane Hanna struck our coast and traveled up our Eastern seaboard. We even got hit with some of Hanna’s activity as a tropical storm in New York City while we were there; including heavy rain, some flooding, and sustained winds of over forty miles per hour. The name Hannah means “favored grace”, and Hanna was a mild hurricane by comparison. God was being gracious in the midst of his stern warnings. We know that in I Samuel, chapter one, a woman named Hannah wept before God for a child, and God saw her tears and heard her prayer. She gave birth to the prophet Samuel, who during his days saw Israel reject God in favor of an earthly king that would bring them into bondage and servitude. When Hurricane Hanna struck our coast with its heavy rains, the very heavens wept profusely over the East coast of our nation as the storm raced toward Washington, D.C. Our nation is a nation that is continually rejecting the one true God, and it is a nation that is now clamoring for a new President. Will this new President bring deeper sorrow and more bondage and servitude?
The third hurricane in the series was Hurricane Ike. This hurricane struck hard as the frenzied storm devastated Galveston, Texas. That city was virtually wiped out. Nearby Houston was also hard hit, and some of the skyscrapers had every window knocked out. Flying metal and glass were everywhere. Millions were without power, drinking water, and other essentials. (31) President Bush’s home state was hit with shock and awe! Here let it be noted that the name Ike means “he shall laugh.” What happens when the people of our country persist in their rebellion against Almighty God? What happens when they blaspheme him, ignore him, and persist in their iniquity and manifold sins? Hurricane Ike was a stern reminder that God will not be mocked and insulted forever by a rebellious nation such as this. Just as Ike means “He shall laugh”, so we read in Psalm 2:4-5 as follows: “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.”
So much is happening so quickly, and the signs of the times are greatly overlapping each other. Numerous significant earthquakes with a magnitude of 4 or greater have been shaking our earth at an average of over 300 per month. On August 31st, 2008, a magnitude 6.1 quake rocked Red China. This was only one week after the occult Olympic Games closed. (32) God was speaking as he sent a major earthquake to that area both before and after the Olympic madness and idolatry.
Two more major earthquakes struck on September 11th, 2008. A massive 6.9 magnitude quake rocked Japan, and a powerful 6.6 quake shook Indonesia. Both quakes were classified as strong by the U.S Geological Survey. (33) We should also be aware that a recent study by scientists at Columbia University reveals that New York City is in line for a major earthquake. New fault lines with some seismic activity have been discovered within two miles of the Indian Point nuclear power plant, just north of New York City. (34)
In addition to the creation crying out, America going bankrupt, the hurricanes, the massive banks and businesses failing, and numerous other such things; we also have tragedies such as the fire in the tunnel that shut down the undersea tunnel connecting England with France. This happened on September 11th, 2008. (35) We also had a terrible train wreck near Los Angeles, California, when a Metrolink passenger train collided head-on with a freight train. Twenty-five people were killed and many others were injured. (36)
The scientists working in Switzerland are gloating about a successful test with the Hadron Collider, which cost nearly nine billion dollars to build and is supposed to prove that the world was not created but got here by a big accidental bang. So far they have only tried this nuclear collider on low power. What will happen when they ramp up this massive nuclear monster that is seventeen miles in circumference? (37) The device works with what scientists call dark energy and matter. Scientists have this to say about dark energy and matter: “Dark energy and matter remains elusive. Dark energy is weird, best thought of as an elastic, repulsive gravity that can’t be broken down into particles. We know what it does, but we don’t know what it is!” (38)
In closing, I urge everyone, everywhere to pray. We are here to help you. Please send you prayer requests to us, and they will receive individual attention. Thanks to all of you who support this prophetic ministry. I pray you will be greatly blessed. Grace and peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
