A Nation Transformed by Fear!

"And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and the unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

Revelation 21:6-8

"Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory."

Luke 21:26-27

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began."

II Timothy 1:7-9

In this issue of the Last Trumpet, we will look at an amazing dynamic that is at work in the lives of nearly all the people of the United States and the world. The dynamic I am referring to is a dark force that holds people everywhere in a willing bondage and servitude to the powerful elite who have seized upon, and now control, every enterprise and endeavor of humanity, We know there is a conspiracy of Luciferian elitists at work, and they are the ones who have turned that word conspiracy into one of ridicule. We know that things do not just happen to happen. Events happen because there are people who want them to happen, and they have risen to a position where they can make them happen. These illuminist hierarchs are allowed to continue and persist in their nefarious schemes primarily because the vast majority of people refuse to believe they exist. They do exist, however, in the highest places of government, religion, banking, education, industry, and other realms. They operate from within secret societies, and I have seen it. I have done extensive research in Masonic lodges all across America. I have been expelled from the Council on Foreign Relations building three times. This building is known as the Harold Pratt Building, and it is located at 58 East 68th Street in Manhattan, New York City. It does exist! I have also been threatened at the entrance of the Tomb of the Skull and Bones at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. These places and the people who function within them are real, and their god is Lucifer, also known as Satan.

The question that arises is one of control. How does this spiritual oligarchy (rule by a few) control so many people? What force would it take to do that job efficiently? That force is fear, and the Bible makes that exceedingly clear in the verses above. When conditions are manufactured that make life so uncertain financially and in every other way, peace and tranquility disappear. When we are constantly put on guard against the threat of terror and terrorist attacks and when we see morality, character, and reference points of stability crumbling all around us, then the dynamic of fear sets in. When they have made cowards of us all through debt, worry, and uncertainty, the powers of darkness then control the masses of humanity. These forces are now obviously at work, and conditions have never been exactly like this before! People everywhere, especially those of the United States, are falling into lock-step acceptance of every crazy and insane thing the government is putting upon them. People believe a lie through fear as they are being conditioned to receive Satan himself in the form of a man. Where are the people who can still think? Where are the fearless that will rise up and cry out against the outrageous evil that fills our land? Truly the end is near! If you are reading this and are not a true Christian, you are in a very sad position of hopelessness. That can all be changed right now if you will surrender your life to the Lord Jesus. He will accept you and give you a heart that is true. You can have peace in the time of trouble and shelter in the time of spiritual storm. Call upon the Saviour now while there is still time!

Transition Government in America!

Only a few weeks ago, a new administration came into power in the United States. The circumstances surrounding this January 20th inauguration were both occult and conspiratorial. I watched with amazement as Barack Hussein Obama took the oath of office, and I found it hard to believe that America had gone so far down the road of deception as to allow this to happen. The new President took his oath of office facing the Egyptian obelisk known as the Washington Monument, and as people listened they thought that Chief Justice Roberts and Mr. Obama flubbed the sacred oath. The word order of the oath was inverted, which is routinely done in witchcraft oaths and vows. The one misplaced word was "faithfully." In order to satisfy potential critics, the oath was redone the next day, this time with no Bible. We must also note that it was done in the Map Room of the White House. (1) No news reporters or photographers were allowed in, but an official photo, taken by the White House photographer, revealed that the oath was administered with Obama standing in front of a large portrait known as the Great Architect. Here let it be noted that in Masonic doctrine, the "Great Architect" is none other than Lucifer or Satan. His official title is the Supreme Architect of the Universe.

Various other strange things happened during the inauguration and subsequent activities. We must remember that before Obama came along, Ted Kennedy was known as the most liberal, left-wing senator of all time. Kennedy collapsed in a seizure and then revived later at a hospital. (2) In the world of the occult, this is a common occurrence when evil spirits leave one person and enter into another.

Spirits of Sodom and Gomorrah were also flooding into our nation's Capital that day. Obama handpicked Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson to lead a prayer at the inaugural events. Bishop Robinson is the man that left his wife and children and became an activist for homosexuality and openly flaunts his "gay" lifestyle. He now prefers to be called Vicki Gene Robinson. The benediction at the inaugural was given by Methodist Dr. Joseph E. Lowery, another flaming advocate of homosexuality. In addition to that, the inaugural parade featured the "Lesbian and Gay Band Association." (3) Another item that I must mention, with hesitation because of its very nature, is the wild homosexual orgy that was planned as a three day event leading up to Inauguration Day. A reservation was made by a sodomite organization known as "MAL Maneuvers" at the Doubletree Hotel on Rhode Island Avenue in Washington, D.C. The reservation was for three conference rooms where a mass orgy of unspeakable acts was scheduled to take place. The details of the report on this are far to sickening to include in this newsletter. All of this was being done in honor of the new "gay-friendly" President, Barack Obama. (4)

The invocation at the inauguration was given by the so-called conservative Rick Warren, who is not only a member of the CFR, but who also praised Obama for selecting the homosexual ministers for the sake of "finding common ground." When Rick Warren was praying, he said in conclusion, "I humbly ask this in the name of the one who changed my life, Yeshua, Isa, Jesus (Spanish pronunciation), Jesus….." That name "Isa", pronounced EEsah, is the false Jesus of the Moslem religion, who was a prophet whose mission was to destroy Christianity! In calling upon "Isa", Rick Warren was equating Allah with Almighty God. (5)

One thing is certain: with the rising of Barack Obama, we are witnessing the rapid rising of both homosexuality and immorality. We are also seeing a massive revival of the Moslem religion. Our U.S. State Department is now featuring a new 2009 wall calendar entitled "Mosques in America." Is there really a separation of church and state? The calendar was advertised by Global Publishing Solutions (GPS), which is a division of our U.S. State Department. The advertisement reads as follows: "In celebration of Ramadan, Global Publishing Solutions (GPS) is offering a limited edition of the 2009 Mosques in America Wall Calendar. This 12-month calendar is perfect for Muslim outreach efforts, as well as office and event giveaways." (6)

On January 27th, 2009, President Barack Obama signed an executive order allocating 20.3 million dollars to bring Palestinians related to the Hamas terrorist organization to the United States as refugees. These are the "victims" of the recent war at Gaza. It is estimated that hundreds of thousands of them will be brought to the United States. These refugees will be eligible for free food and housing. This executive order appeared in the Federal Register, volume 74, number 221.e 1615. (7) It appears that we have not yet seen the beginning of trouble. I was born in this country, but it is not now the same country I was born in!

There is no doubt in my mind the Barack Obama is a type of Antichrist. If the Lord allows it, Obama will completely destroy what is left of the United States of America. In Revelation 13:18 we are warned as follows: "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." Much has been said and written about the number of the beast, but one important point about this verse is often forgotten. The word count is taken from the Greek word psephizo, which also carries the meaning of counting or deciding by vote. For those who think the Antichrist will barge his way in and take over by force need to realize that he will be chosen and elected first. In John 5:43, the Lord Jesus said, "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." Thus, he will be a man of vast popularity and received as an alternative to Jesus Christ.

Recently, Barack Obama and his wife Michelle made an appearance at Capital City Public Charter School. They read a book to second graders entitled The Moon Over Star, which is a story about the Apollo moon landing. (8) We must remember, however, that the crescent moon and star are also the symbols of the religion of Islam. Watch for the continual use of such clever associations with this religion.

We must also watch for the high profile ministers to sell out to Obama as modern-day Judas Iscariots. On January 3rd, 2009, Pat Robertson, founder of the giant Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), declared that God told him that Americans will embrace socialism in 2009, and the U.S. economy will rebound under the Obama Administration. (9) How can any man be so out-of-touch with the true God?

During the time of the inauguration in Washington, D.C., a parallel abomination was taking place in Des Moines, Iowa, where Obama had his first big win in his run for President. An artist made a realistic image of Obama, which was set on a donkey and led down the street to the capitol in Iowa. Secret Service type limousines with flags accompanied the antichrist Obama image, and people were given palm branches to lay before the donkey as it progressed slowly down Locust Street. The title of the news article was "Obama's Triumphal Entry: Gentle, Riding on Donkey." (10) Certainly you must remember the words of Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, who said, "When Obama talks, the Messiah is absolutely speaking." (10)

Now we are seeing Obama sacred medallions being worn around the neck on a chain. The medallion has Obama's image struck in it with the words "Save Us." (11) On January 17th, 2009, the London Daily Mail featured the headline which began with the words "Obama Can Save Us." (12) On January 18th, 2009, the Guardian Newspaper in London, England, featured a story with the headlines "President Has Four Years to Save the Earth." The story was based on studies done by NASA scientist Jim Hansen, telling how Obama will need to take immediate action to save the earth from ecological disaster. (13) Who is this man, Barack Obama, that Vanity Fair Magazine declared is "the most famous living person in the history of the world"? (14) Who is this man that women throughout the United States are having indecent dreams and fantasies about, as reported by the New York Times Newspaper? (15) Who is this man, Barack Obama, that we know so little about? Consider the following list: Occidental College records-Not released, Columbia University records-Not released, Columbia Thesis paper-Not available, Harvard College records-Not released, Selective Service Registration-Not released, Medical records-Not released, Illinois State Senate Schedule-Not available, Law Practice client list- Not released, Certified copy of original birth certificate-Not released, Embossed, signed paper Certification of Live Birth-Not released, Record of Baptism-Not available.

Is America becoming a Marxist-Socialist dictatorship? On February 12th, 2009, Senator Judd Gregg, a Republican that Obama selected as the Secretary of Commerce, withdrew from that position. Senator Gregg cited irresolvable differences between Obama and himself regarding the U.S. Census, which is under the authority of the Department of Commerce. (16) According to a newscast heard on WTMJ Radio in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which was aired at 11:30 on February 10th, 2009, Obama told Senator Gregg that the Department of Commerce would not have the oversight of the U.S. Census. Obama made it clear that the White House would take over the job of managing the census for control of the population purposes!

Obama has also been filling key positions in government with pro-abortion radicals, such as Ellen Moran, who was executive director of the pro-abortion EMILY'S List organization and is now Obama's Communications Director. Dawn Johnsen of the radical pro-abortion organization NARAL is now on Obama's Department of Justice review team. Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, who made a special trip to the Denver headquarters of pro-abortion Planned Parenthood to show her support, is now the head of the powerful Department of Homeland Security. Melody Barnes, a director of both Planned Parenthood and EMILY'S List, is now the head of Obama's Domestic Policy Council. Tom Daschle, who is fanatically in favor of partial birth abortion and opposed to abstinence education, was chosen to be Obama's powerful Secretary of Health and Human Services. (17) The list goes on and on. How long will it be until the Lord says, "It is enough"?

Transition to Hell's Economy!

Every day it is becoming more obvious that the dark forces of conspiracy are hard at work to sabotage the economy of the United States in order to force a new and tightly controlled electronic economic system on the people of America and eventually the entire world. In January 2009, the first month of the New Year, another six hundred thousand jobs were lost in the United States. (18) On Inauguration Day, the stock market in America dropped more than any other Inauguration Day in its 112-year history. The Dow Jones Index dropped 332.13 points on January 20th, 2009. (19) On the 13th day of February, the International Herald Tribune reported that many of the largest banks in the United States are on the brink of insolvency. (20) This problem persists in spite of the so-called bailout. The bailout was never designed to solve the problem, and nearly three trillion dollars have already disappeared into thin air. I recently spoke with an official from a large Wisconsin-based bank that received 1.77 billion dollars in bailout money. This bank is extremely tight-fisted and charges plenty of interest while paying out almost no interest. The official told me that they didn't need the bailout but took the taxpayer money anyway because they qualified for it. They have made fools of the American people, and the Americans don't seem to mind.

On the 13th day of February, Friday the 13th, four more banks were seized by the Federal Government, bringing the total for the year to thirteen! (21) Are we seeing an occult pattern here? The banks were in Florida, Illinois, Nebraska, and Oregon.

The U.S. Postal Service is raising its rates again and still is in serious financial trouble. The Postmaster General has now announced that they will likely have to eliminate one day each week from mail delivery. (22) In spite of the deplorable financial condition of the Postal Service, the Postmaster General managed to get himself a bonus of $600,000.00 at the end of 2008. That amount is two and one-half times his yearly salary!

How bad is the economy of the United States? To answer that question, we must look beyond the national debt to the total current obligations of the United States. Those obligations total 65.5 trillion dollars, which is more than the gross domestic product of the entire world! This figure includes all of the Social Security and Medicare benefits to be paid out. (23)

Is our own government being honest with us? They never have been, so why should they start now? I recall a newscast that aired many years ago on the Huntley-Brinkley Report during the administration of President John Kennedy. In the report was a statement issued by then Pentagon Press Agent Arthur Sylvester, who said, "The government has the right to lie to the people." This obviously remains as policy with "Uncle Scam." In fact, one of the few courageous senators, Jim DeMint, a Republican from South Carolina, warned us, "The White House will create a crisis and panic to push the stimulus bill." (24) The stimulus bill is not about stimulating the economy, but it is rather a part of the sabotage plan. When so much more money that doesn't exist is thrown into a pool of already weak dollars, it will make the existing dollars weaker than ever before. On February 9th, 2009, the Financial Times reported that gold bullion sales hit a record high as investors get rid of doomed paper currency. (25) The recent sales of gold have increased four-fold!

On February 10th, 2009, the Senate passed Obama's economic recovery plan 61 to 37. (26) During this process, late night secret meetings were held that shut out Republicans, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid met with others at midnight (the witching hour) to turn the trick for Obama. (27) It was so bad that Representative Tom Price, a Republican from Georgia, made a speech outside of Nancy Pelosi's office. A secret meeting was going on and the door was closed and locked. In his speech, Price questioned the shady deals that were going on. His exact words were as follows: "What this means is there are more shady deals going on behind closed doors - without the public, without Republicans in attendance." (28) The Democrats in control also promised that the stimulus bill would be made available to every member of Congress and to the general public via the internet forty-eight hours before the vote. This promise was quickly broken! (29) The original bill was 424 pages long but quickly swelled to 999 pages. That number 999 is an inverted 666. The number 999 is also the number of finality in the computer language of Fortran. Everyone was expecting to vote on the package of 999 pages, but as of Thursday night, February 12th, it was still not made available. By 8:20 A.M., another 72 pages had been added. (30) On Friday the 13th, just two hours before the vote was to take place, every member of Congress was given a copy of the bill they had not yet seen. It now consisted of 1,071 pages and was eight inches thick. This is more than two reams of paper. It was then announced that the bill had to be urgently voted upon now because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was leaving on an eight-day trip and was scheduled to meet with the Pope! (31) Everything was rushed, and it was obviously impossible to read that many pages in two hours. The bill passed the House 246 to 183 on Friday the 13th of February. Not one of those who voted had read the massive bill. It was passed in the fog of obscurity. (32)

The bill, which is now law, contains more pork than the 2,000 swine that were possessed with devils in Mark 5:13. The devils have now gone into the stimulus package. Included in the package is $300 million to purchase golf cart type vehicles called "green" cars, also known as "neighborhood electric vehicles" or NEV's. (33) Another $30 million will go to a personal project belonging to Nancy Pelosi. It will be used to protect the habitat of the San Francisco salt marsh harvest mouse. (34)

One of the most dangerous measures in the bill is a set of health rules that reflect the handiwork of the infamous Tom Daschle. The health bill, which is now law, will affect every person in the United States. Your medical treatments will be tracked by the Federal Government electronically. The bill calls for a new bureaucracy to be immediately set up. It will be called the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology. This agency will "monitor treatments to make sure your doctor is doing what the Federal Government deems appropriate and cost effective." The bill also refers to doctors who cooperate as "meaningful users," and those who do not cooperate will be fined and penalized! (35) I should not need to comment on the danger of legislation such as this. The Federal Big Brother has now taken a giant step toward the absolute control and management of your body.

Eye Contact With Big Brother!

Many people have wondered about the television switchover from analog to digital and the little converter boxes that the government is helping people to purchase. It is quite a scheme, and the "upgrade" is one that will facilitate high-tech mind control. Our U.S. Military has used such technology for over ten years, and it was used on the Iraqis to bring them to their knees quickly when invaded in 1990. The technology is called Silent Sound Spread Spectrum or SSSS. U.S. Patent number 4,858,612 was issued to Philip Stocklin on December 19th, 1983, for the invention. It is also known as sound of silence (remember the Simon and Garfunkel song), and it works by transmission of sound undetected by the ear but planted into the human auditory cortex of the brain. It is the ultimate in universal mind control. If this system were attempted to be used with the old analog television, it would show up only as static. That is why everything must be converted to digital, and the government will help you pay for it. Don't put it past big brother to try to put the will of the Antichrist directly into your brain as you make eye contact with your digital television. (36) You may find yourself thinking things you otherwise would never think and doing things you would otherwise never do! Incidentally, the first verse of the satanically prophetic song "The Sound of Silence" reads as follows: "Hello darkness my old friend, I've come to talk with you again, Because a vision softly creeping, Left its seeds while I was sleeping, And the vision that was planted in my brain still remains, Within the sound of silence."

Fearful Sights in the Heavens and on Earth!

These certainly are the days of fearful sights, just as they were prophesied by our Saviour. So much could be said about the ongoing earthquakes, volcanoes, floods, drought, and pestilences; and still people refuse to repent. The real problem is not global warming but rather global sinning.

The recent fires in Australia were far worse than the news media in the United States revealed. Entire towns were incinerated over a widespread area, and the death toll has now gone beyond 200. Authorities are still finding piles of ashes here and there that were once people. The fires were driven by winds in excess of 60 miles per hour, and the air temperature was as high as 117 degrees Fahrenheit. (37) In this troubled land of Victoria, millions of animals, including kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, and others, lay dead along the roadsides. These were spared the horror of survival as countless numbers of animals have their feet, ears, and other body parts burned and are greatly suffering. (38)

This tragic fire catastrophe hit me quite hard as I have very dear and beloved friends who live in that area. One dear friend is a medical doctor who now practices natural medicine. His house, property, and animals were in imminent danger as three large fires driven by high winds were close and moving toward him. We at Last Trumpet Ministries went into prayer, and I told my friend to expect a miracle. The next day I received an e-mail telling me that the miracle happened. The fires went around him and his property! His report of the fires, however, was sobering and shocking. He wrote the following words: "Imagine a basketball covered with petrol rolling down a street. Imagine that the basketball seems to have fingers that consume everything it touches. Imagine 120 degree heat. Imagine 160 mile per hour winds. Imagine watching people engulfed in flames before your eyes. Imagine that when the firestorm passes there is nothing left to remember them; they just vanished. Imagine a child shaking uncontrollably because the flesh hangs from his little body. Imagine people consumed in a flame that has a face…..I can imagine this, but I believe I have seen Satan. Satan is real; I have seen his face!" (39)

There is an amazing occult aspect to these fires. Reportedly, there were four hundred of them set and all at the same time! They were set on February 9th, 2009, during the time of the full moon. This date is the southern hemisphere's equivalent of the celebration of the ancient Roman god Vulcan, the fire god. On this day of Volcanalia, the ancient Romans sacrificed animals in fires during the August full moon of summer. In Australia it would be the February full moon. I have no doubt that dark and occult forces are at work!

Other strange things have been happening, such as the collision of two nuclear submarines; one was British and one was French. Each carried enough nuclear weapons to carry out 1,248 Hiroshima bombings. This was a near cataclysmic event! (40) Only days later, two satellites collided in space, 480 miles above Siberia. This was a first-ever collision of satellites. (41) Experts have classified this collision as catastrophic as many thousands of pieces of space junk are now orbiting our earth in the busiest orbital area. All other satellites are now threatened by the massive amounts of debris. (42) The collision was so dynamic that it could be seen with the naked eye. There are at least 600 major-sized pieces of the two satellites, and there are countless smaller pieces that are surrounding our earth. (43) In other words, our troubled planet is now surrounded by a vast belt of junk in space. It appears that at least two of these pieces have already streaked through the earth's atmosphere as giant fireballs! Truly there are signs in the heavens and on earth.

In closing, I want to thank all of you who support this end time prophetic ministry. I pray you will be blessed exceedingly. Your prayer requests are always welcomed, and they receive individual attention by our prayer teams. Millions of people have been logging on to read this newsletter, and many thousands of recorded sermons and messages are being mailed all over the world. Our new catalog is now complete and available. Grace and peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
