Death Clouds Over a Lost Nation!
"Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time."I John 2:18
"I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive."John 5:43
"Woe unto them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Baalam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Co'-re. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: carried about of winds, trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever."Jude 11-13
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will look with great shock and amazement at the United States of America as a nation in the dramatic arena of adverse change! Many and countless changes, some visible and many invisible, are now taking place in our nation since we now have a new President-elect. The entire campaign of Barack Hussein Obama, the junior Senator from Illinois, consisted of one word: change. Now that he is soon to be the President of the United States, we will see the true horrors of change. The simple word change has no guarantee of good contained in the six letters that make up the word. At face value it simply means: give me anything other than what I now have. A study of history will quickly reveal that Adolf Hitler and others of his ilk who were first elected to office and shortly after became dictators were also first elected to office on a campaign of one word and that word was change.
In ancient Israel, God's people made the same grave error. They demanded change. They entered into the spiritual auditorium of blind change, and it eventually destroyed them and brought them into Babylonian slavery and captivity. In Jeremiah 2:11-13 we read of this as follows: "Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? But my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit. Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be ye very desolate, saith the Lord. For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water."
Satan thrives in the arena of ambiguous change. If Satan can keep people in a constant state of change, they never arrive at anything. Nothing is conclusive, there are no reference points, and eventually all indices of truth are lost. Change, in and of itself, means that nothing is certain!
Our nation of the United States of America is a lost nation. It is a nation that is now overshadowed by the death clouds of uncertainty. It is a nation that will stay lost as it spirals downward rapidly and draws ever closer to hell. The only change that would save our country is if our nation would completely repent and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ, the one true Saviour! This did not happen with the election of Barack Hussein Obama. We do know that individuals can have their lives changed by the Lord Jesus. If you do not know Him as your personal Lord and Saviour, now is the time to come to Him on your knees in serious repentance and with sincerest prayer. He will hear you and change you. You cannot vote for change; you must repent for change. On Judgment Day eternal salvation will be the only thing that has any value at all. You will be there one way or the other!
Profiles of an Antichrist!
On November 5th, 2008, Barack Hussein Obama was declared President-elect to become the 44th President of the United States of America in January 2009. The number of electoral votes needed to win the presidential election is 270, and Obama had 338 to McCain's 145. It had been a strange campaign and election with strange forces at work. Election fraud and corruption were evident everywhere in the United States. A corrupt organization working for and secretly with Obama is known as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or A.C.O.R.N. This foul outfit was giving cash and cigarettes to street people and then bringing them to register to vote as Democrats. Some individuals were registered as many as seventy-two times. (2) Obama was also raising vast amounts of money as hundreds of millions of dollars flowed into his coffers. He raised 150 million dollars in one month, which was the month of September 2008. (3) Vast amounts of these funds came from overseas, and they were from sources that refused to reveal their identity.
In the eight presidential elections I personally remember, going back to the time of the late John Kennedy, I have never seen anything like the Obama election. It was as if the world was electing him. Two hundred-forty nations were having wild and frenzied celebrations as the news reached them. In Kenya, the true birthplace of Barack Obama, wild ecstasy was everywhere, and people began slaughtering animals to celebrate. Pastor Washington Obonyo in Kenya said, "Senator Obama is our new President; God has answered our prayers." Then a jubilant Joseph Otieno said, "Because Obama has won, we will have change in the whole world. And for that I will slaughter a cockrel to celebrate with my family." (4)
Another thing that must be remembered about our new President-elect is that he made Chicago his home town, and he quickly made his way to the very center of the corrupt Chicago political machine. Many deluded people praised Obama, because during the early days after his nomination he refused taxpayer money for campaign funds. Because of that refusal, the Federal Election Commission cannot conduct an embarrassing audit of his campaign funds. (5) On the other hand, McCain's campaign coffers will receive a rigorous audit. Obama was able to raise unthinkable amounts of money and remain audit-exempt, so his refusal to accept taxpayer campaign funds was void of honorable intent. It was to cover his criminal activity!
Deceived people seem to have an affinity for deceptive leaders, and eventually they worship them. On November 10th, the International Herald Tribune reported that the name Barack has become a hot new name for babies, and that many parents are giving that name to their newborn sons. During the first week after the election in one hospital alone, twenty-three boys were born, and they were all named Barack. (6) In addition to that, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported on November 9th, 2008, that plans are now underway to add another national holiday to our calendar: The Obama National Holiday! (7) What has this man done to deserve any of this?
On Election Eve as Barack Obama was preparing to celebrate, one of the featured entertainers was the ever-popular Bruce Springsteen, who sometimes refers to himself as the Jersey Devil in reference to his home state of New Jersey. On Halloween night, just a few days before the presidential election, Bruce Springsteen posted a free download of a new song on his website entitled "A Night With the Jersey Devil." The song was about sixteen witches casting sixteen spells. (8) As a former occultist, this is no joke to me. In witchcraft, a coven usually consists of thirteen witches. When the number grows beyond that to reach sixteen, there is now a power of three beyond thirteen to begin forming a new coven. This is called hiving off, and thus, Springsteen was singing about the expansion of witchcraft in America. We must also note that there will be fifteen cabinet members, plus the Vice President, who will make up the Obama sixteen! Who is this strange new President-elect, who was raised as a Moslem, and upon coming to Chicago, joined a so-called "Christian" church that does not require a Moslem to renounce his faith to be a member? Who is this sixth post-war President to be left-handed, who has read every Harry Potter book? Who is this strange one who was raised on dog meat and snake meat, and who used many drugs as a teenager, including marijuana and cocaine? Why was he given the code name Renegade by the Secret Service? (9) Many answers to these and other questions will come forth soon.
We also know that Inauguration Day is January 20th, 2009. In astrology and witchcraft, that day is a high day, because it is the day when the sun enters the 11th sign of the zodiac, known as Aquarius. The rock group known as the Fifth Dimension had a hit song about the Age of Aquarius, when a new power would come in with a new harmony and understanding, and that it would be a time of "mystic crystal revelations." We must also remember that the word inaugurate comes from the ancient Roman Empire, where soothsayers were called augurs. The word inaugurate literally means to take omens. It is done while facing the giant 555 foot obelisk, called the Washington Monument. The architectural word obelisk literally means shaft of Baal, which is the erect reproductive organ of Baal, the sun-god. What could be more pagan than all of this?
On the day of his inauguration, Barack Hussein Obama must stand and say the following words: "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States." (10) But what is an oath to such a charlatan traitor, who in a speech clearly stated the following: "The Constitution is a fundamental flaw and blind spot….."
There is no doubt in my mind that Barack Hussein Obama was not born in the United States and is therefore ineligible to be President of the United States. His birth certificate has obviously been altered as was proven by a team of forensics experts. Even the certificate number in the upper right corner is completely blacked out. When Attorney Philip Berg of Pennsylvania filed a Federal lawsuit challenging Obama's birth records, he had hopes of getting to the truth of the matter. Shortly before the election, the court threw the case out! (11) This court was presented documentary proof that Barack Obama was born in Mombassa, Kenya, not in Hawaii. Even Obama's own paternal grandmother admitted this fact in the presence of numerous witnesses. One of the witnesses was Bishop Ron McRae, presiding Elder of the African Presbytery of the Anabaptist Churches, who filed a notarized affidavit with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. (12) It was all to no avail. We must also note that Obama's maternal grandmother, who had also been interviewed, became suddenly very ill and died on November 3rd, the day before the election. (13)
There are some very amazing spiritual aspects to Barack Hussein Obama, and none of them are good. Powerful evidence has now emerged regarding his ancestry. Eight thousand Beduin nomadic people say they have photographic and other documentary proof that Obama has Arab blood from the Beduin tribe and came from these tribes of nomadic Arabs of northern Israel. He is also one-quarter white and one-quarter Kenyan. (14) This Beduin connection would make him a descendant of Abraham through Ishmael and a descendant of Esau through the Idumeans and Edomites. The Herodian Dynasty came from this race, including Herod the baby killer, who ruled at the time when Jesus was born. This would make Barack Hussein Obama a prime candidate for the office of Antichrist! In Hebrew, the word "Barak" without the added letter "C" means lightning. When Revelation, chapter 13, tells us of the antichrist causing fire to come down from heaven, the Greek word used there for fire means lightning. Why did the news media on election night keep saying that America and all the other countries were "electrified by Obama's rise in the polls?" We also know that Obama's home state of Illinois has a state lottery with one game called "Pick Three." The numbers for the evening draw on the day he was elected were 6-6-6! (15) I personally believe that some of the same spirits that were in Adolf Hitler are now in Barack Obama. Why did Obama take his campaign to Berlin, Germany, and stand in the Tiergarten with his right arm stiffened and raised to 45 degrees in a Hitler-like salute? Why did thousands of Germans who gathered there return that salute, which is forbidden by law in Germany? Why did Obama give his one-world speech from a place in Berlin where five streets come together at a place called the Big Star? (16)
Barack Obama has made continual comments alluding to self-divinity. In one speech he said a light from above would shine down upon the voters, and they would experience an epiphany. They would then hear a voice from above saying, "Vote for Barack." Here let it be noted that the word epiphany means a revelation of the manifestation of a divine being! On October 22nd, 2008, Obama told the people of Virginia, "I feel like we got a righteous wind at our backs here." (17) In Lake City, Florida, a large sign was placed in the window of the Obama headquarters which read as follows: "To God be the glory, great things he has done." Under that quote, the sign said, "OBAMA - Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done." (18)
On November 6th, 2008, Obama picked Rahm Emanuel as his White House chief of staff. (19) The name Rahm in the Hebrew language means high and lofty one, and Emanuel means God with us, or God incarnate. Rahm Emanuel is a demonic genius, who cannot finish a sentence without going into excessive profanity. He makes frequent use of the infamous "F" word and frequently raises his middle finger in an obscene gesture. Obviously, this man has no class at all!
On November 10th, 2008, Georgia Congressman Paul Broun warned the people of the United States that President-elect Obama was setting up for a Marxist dictatorship. He gave the following warning: "I fear that President-elect Obama will establish a Gestapo-like security force to impose a Marxist Dictatorship. It may sound a little crazy or off base, but the thing is, he's the one who proposed this National Security Force….." (20) On November 13th, just three days later, Representative Broun backpedaled and apologized. He stated that he "regretted putting it that way." (21) Have you ever noticed how many times someone in authority found temporary courage and stated the truth, only to cave in later? There is knuckle-busting in high places.
Is all of this really happening? On November 10th, 2008, it was reported that the co-chair of the Obama transition team, Valerie Jarrett, used some very interesting words on the Meet the Press program. She made the following declaration to Tom Brokaw: "Obama will be ready to rule on day one." She then repeated herself with the following words: "Given the daunting challenges that we face, it is important that President-elect Obama is prepared to really take power and begin to rule day one." (22) Since when are American politicians kings that rule from office? We also know that Georgia Congressman and civil rights leader John Lewis made the following statement on election night: "Today's election was a non-violent revolution, and an unbelievable and unreal transformation of American politics." He said these words to news anchor Charlie Gibson. (23)
Are we, at this very time, in a metamorphosis and transition into a Marxist-Socialist and even Communistic state? Here let it be noted that on November 7th, 2008, former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev stated in a news release that the Obama Administration needs to implement a far-reaching perestroika in the United States. The word perestroika is strictly a Russian Communist word that means restructuring! (24) We must remember that Mikhail Gorbachev after leaving office in the Soviet Union was given a new job and title by the global Illuminists. He came to the United States and was given an impressive office at the Presidio in San Francisco, California. He became the head of an organization designed to reshape the United States into an interdependant unit of a one-world government. His organization was called the State of the World Forum. I stood by his office in 1999, and we did verify that he was there, right next to the FEMA complex. We rebuked his office in the name of the Lord Jesus. Within a few days, an earthquake rattled his offices, his wife died, and he went back to Russia. Never underestimate the power of prayer, and always leave it all in the hands of the Almighty.
On November 9th, Obama's handpicked White House chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, revealed that Obama is set to push a reform package on the United States. Obama's new reforms have been referred to as the "big bang." (25) We must remember that the words "big bang" are used by the evolutionists to explain how the universe came forth with no God as a creator. Obama also stated that he will use executive orders for immediate impact. (26)
Rising of the 666 Money System!
The economy of the United States continues to collapse, and the signs of it are everywhere. Gains in the stock market are quickly lost, and the entire trend is downward. On November 6th, 2008, the Associated Press reported the following headline: "Stocks tumble, lose 10 percent in 2-day rout." (27) It is always an amazing thing when a trillion dollars are lost in two days! Where did it go? The sad fact is that the wealth is falling into fewer and fewer hands. The Federal Government is also continuing to shut down banks. On November 8th, 2008, two more large banks, the large Houston-based Franklin Bank, and the Security Pacific Bank in Los Angeles, were shut down. Countless more are in grave danger of being shut down as well! (28) Why is all of this happening, even after the massive government bailout? The answer is simple. Even though the government told us they were going to buy the bad debts of the banks, they are in fact buying the banks themselves. Large stakes are being purchased in the major banks of the United States. (29) It is all a part of the plot to depart from the Constitution of the United States and force Marxist socialism upon the unsuspecting American people.
On November 10th, 2008, Bloomberg News reported that the Federal Reserve has flatly refused to disclose who received two trillion dollars of taxpayer money. (30) Remember, the bailout was supposed to be only 700 billion dollars, and that was bad enough. Suddenly, trillions of dollars are disappearing to undisclosed recipients. Obviously, the government is intentionally destroying our economy to make way for the new electronic beast money system. We are watching this systematically happen before our very eyes. Anyone with a properly working brain knows that you cannot repair our current system of credits and currencies. The Illuminati-controlled Federal Government has no intentions or expectations in that direction. They are preparing the way for the second beast of Revelation, chapter thirteen, who will cause everyone to receive the mark of the beast in order to buy or sell anything.
On November 15th, 2008, a G-20 summit was held at the White House in Washington, D.C. Twenty world leaders came together to discuss the worldwide financial crisis and to decide what to do about it. The meeting was short and simple. All twenty leaders agreed to cooperate with each other, and then they headed for the banquet table. Then the feasting began with entrees such as Fruitwood smoked Quail, Thyme-roasted Rack of Lamb, and Tomato, Fennel and Eggplant Fondue Chanterelle Jus. They washed all of this down with Shafer Cabernet Hillside Select 2003 wine at a cost of $500 per bottle. (31) All of that talk about conditions of economic failure and people living in poverty must have made them hungry. Meanwhile, millions of Americans remain jobless, homeless, and in the depth of poverty.
On November 13th, 2008, Mayor Daley of Chicago released a warning for his giant city to prepare for mass layoffs for both the private sector and government workers at city, county, and state levels. (32) Meanwhile, major cities throughout the United States are bankrupt and asking for bailouts. Billions of dollars are being requested by Atlanta, Phoenix, and Philadelphia. (33) The City Council of Detroit has requested 10 billion dollars in bailout money. (34) The state of California has also requested a loan of 7 billion dollars, which you can be sure will never be paid back. (35) We also know that the auto makers are crying for a massive government bailout under which the government would be buying significant portions of the auto industry. (36) Unless God intervenes, we will no doubt see the day when the strong socialistic Federal Government owns the auto companies, airlines, and all private industry. It is beginning to happen now!
Truly, we are seeing things happen that have never happened before. The United States Postal Service recently announced a massive cut of 40,000 jobs. It is their first layoff in history! (37) It is all quite amazing when we realize that our financial collapse and demise, as we now see it happening, could not have happened without computers. It takes computers to manage billions and trillions of dollars. It takes computers to manage debt of all types. Earlier this year, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) died. Before he died, the brilliant professor of computer science pronounced computers as devices of evil and called them anti-human. The professor, Dr. Joseph Weizenbaum, said that computer systems could be compared with National Socialism, Karl Marx, and Stalin. Dr. Weizenbaum also issued the following sobering statement: "How long will it be before what counts as fact is determined by the system, before all other knowledge, all memory, is simply declared illegitimate?" Dr. Weizenbaum also compared the internet to "one of those garbage dumps outside Bombay, India." Truly, the last days are upon us!
Global Sinning And Great Signs of the End!
Global sinning is constantly increasing, and this will continue until the very day of the return of our Saviour. In II Timothy 3:13 we read as follows: "But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived." We also know that the heavy and continual human rebellion against God, as humans fall into lock-step cooperation with evil spirits, also has a profound effect on the creation of God. The earth, sun, moon, and stars are all reacting to the horrifying extent of global sinning! In Romans 8:22 we read the following: "For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now." I have personally been watching and documenting the dynamic incidents of man's rebellion and God's reaction to it for many years.
On election night, November 4th, 2008, Proposition 8 passed in the state of California. The Supreme Court of California, which decided that sodomite couples had a right to marry, had their decision overridden by a narrow margin of voters. The sodomites went berserk with anger and began massive protests. There were already sixteen thousand sodomite couples in California, and many more planning to be married. Six days later, Governor Arnold Schwartzenegger of California made a speech on behalf of the sodomites telling them, "Don't give up!" The governor also pledged the support of his administration to help overturn Proposition 8 and not only reinstate sodomite marriages, but also "lead the country in that arena." (38) Then it happened! Just after making his speech promoting the abomination of homosexual marriage, fires began to break out. In Montecito, one hundred multimillion dollar homes were destroyed. (39) Then other fires broke out in the San Fernando Valley. Currently over one thousand homes have been destroyed in the blazing infernos whipped up by high winds. God is so willing to help and forgive if only people would repent; otherwise, there is much more judgment coming!
Another thing that happened on election night is that the state of Massachusetts decriminalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use. (40) This has opened a door for many evils and great demonic activity.
In Mexico City, Mayor Marcelo Ebrard announced that beginning December 1st, 2008, the city intends to provide free Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis to 112,000 men seventy years and older who live in his city. The mayor said the drugs would increase the happiness and quality of life of the elderly men. (41)
In Australia, the White Cockatoo Resort in Mossman is sponsoring a month-long nude "anything goes" party to combat the economic downturn. The local regional Mayor, Val Schier, has no objections to the event, and even though the hedonistic celebration doesn't begin until March 2009, the reservations are nearly filled. (42)
The earth is literally shaking under the influence of shameful sin. At this present time, we are still averaging nearly three hundred significant earthquakes every month of magnitude four or greater. These quakes continue non-stop according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Less than one month ago, a powerful earthquake with a magnitude of 8.0 hit Chechnya, Russia, and completely destroyed 1,027 buildings. (43) Just before Election Day in America, a magnitude 6.1 quake rattled the Aleutian Islands of Alaska. The entire region was shaken! (44) As I look at the earthquake maps, it is becoming obvious that the earth's crust is literally coming apart at the seams. How much more can it take? All of this was foretold in Matthew, chapter 24; Luke, chapter 21; and Mark, chapter 13!
Astronomers are now shocked as they look into the heavens, because powerful auroras, or glowing masses, are appearing around various planets of our solar system such as have never been seen before. A massive blood-red cloud of glowing gases now covers much of northern Saturn. I have in front of me a picture of the planet taken by NASA's Cassini space craft; and in my forty-six years of studying astronomy, I have never seen Saturn look like this. Cassini scientist Tom Stallard said, "We've never seen an aurora like this elsewhere." (45) The blood-red mass almost seems alive as it pulsates and glows!
There are also unprecedented changes taking place on our sun. NASA scientists are marveling because the sun is slowly starting to dim, and there were no sunspots at all for two months. That has never happened before. Scientists are saying that the sun is now on a dimmer switch -- solar winds have weakened, and the sun is cooler and less dense. (46) It is as if our sun is beginning to die early.
Many odd things continue to happen everywhere. On election night in the utmost east of our country, massive fifteen foot waves began to pound the coast of Maine at low tide. The residents of Boothbay Harbor thought it was the end of the world as three separate rounds of crashing giant waves came from nowhere and began to rip docks apart. The horrified residents were heard to cry out, "Oh my God, is this the end?" Scientists have been unable to explain the unusual event! (47)
In conclusion, I urge everyone to continue to pray the prayers of faith! Your requests are always welcomed here, and they receive individual attention. Never give up. No prayer is wasted! Thanks to all of you who support this prophetic ministry, which is now going into its 28th year of publication. Please remember to send in your renewal notice enclosed with this newsletter to be sure you are on the 2009 mailing list. God bless you exceedingly! Grace and peace be unto you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
