The Deafening Sound of Silence!
"Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets: She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying, How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning; and fools hate knowledge? Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at naught all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity, I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me."Proverbs 1:20-28
"And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour."Revelation 8:1
"And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts."Revelation 9:20-21
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will examine our present world in the light of the above Scripture verses. As we do this, we will begin to understand the spiritual reasons why such amazing things continue to happen in our nation and world, and why things are now as they never were before. I have been watching the signs of the times for many years, and I can say with absolute certainty that we are now in the last of the last days. We cannot know the day or hour of the Saviour's return, but we can discern this time. Those who understand this and can see so clearly what is happening are often made to wonder what it will take to open the eyes and ears of the vast majority of the people. When will they wake up? The sad fact is that most never will awaken until it is too late.
The first Scripture portion above tells us that wisdom cries aloud in the streets and in the midst of large gatherings of people; yet there is no response. People everywhere are responding impulsively to the impetus of every kind of sin, especially religious error, but the answer to the call of God is apathetic silence. This silence is deafening. It is like a vast vacuum demanding judgment from Almighty God. The vast majority of the people are spiritually truth-deaf; they can hear nothing but error. That is the very reason they are so easily controlled and manipulated by the elitist illuministic conspirators. We know that Satan is the "father of lies," who brings forth in the final days his ultimate deception, the Antichrist and his global governance under a new one-world economy. All of this is being maneuvered into place even as I write this.
Never has there been a greater need for repentance than right now, and never has any desperate cry for repentance been so unheeded and ignored. We know that our Saviour told us that there is rejoicing in Heaven when even one sinner comes to repentance (Luke 15:10). According to the second portion of Scripture above, the time will come when the rejoicing in Heaven completely stops, and there is complete silence about the space of one-half hour. We will reach that sobering time when all repentance has stopped on earth. The final portion of Scripture above reveals that the people of the world refuse to repent, and it gives a list of the evils they refuse to repent of. It is hard to imagine a time when not one person on earth will truly repent, but we are rapidly approaching that time. The Antichrist leader will have the complete attention and adoration of the world.
If you are reading this and have never completely surrendered your life to the Lord Jesus Christ, you can do it right now. You do not have much time left as everything is moving so quickly now. You can know true peace in times of trouble because the Saviour will make his presence known to you. Eternity is just ahead!
Barack Obama - Author of Confusion!
Barack Obama holds the office of President of the United States, and no President has ever been like the current one. Mr. Obama fancies himself as some kind of miracle man, and his recent travels to various parts of the world have been nothing short of an ego trip. When traveling to England for the April 1st, 2009, G-20 Summit, which was appropriately held on April Fools or All Fools Day, Mr. Obama, also known as Mr. Embarrassment, put on quite a show for the world. This man who is proclaiming that he will fix the economy was quite extravagant regarding his trip. He arrived at the summit in England with a staff of five hundred, his own limousine flown in from Washington, D.C., and a fleet of decoy helicopters. His entourage included a number of armor-plated limousines, including his personal limousine, which is named The Beast. The Beast car is a $300,000 dollar vehicle equipped with a night vision camera, reinforced steel plating, a tear gas cannon, and oxygen tanks. In addition to the numerous helicopters were two hundred secret service staff and a six-doctor medical team. He also brought White House kitchen staff to prepare his food. Before Obama arrived, every place he was to go was tested for electronic bugs, and the air was tested for bacteria. A military officer also traveled with him and carried a brief case with all of America's nuclear missile launch codes. A surgical team also traveled with him bringing along with them a supply of type AB blood for the President. (1)
One thing that should be noted about this trip is that President Obama did not bow to the Queen of England, but he did instinctively bow to the King of Saudi Arabia. We know the reason why the President broke protocol and bowed to the Saudi King. One of the titles of the Saudi King is the "Guardian of Mecca." (2) Now the White House is denying that Obama bowed to the Saudi King and said that he knelt down only because the King was shorter than him. The many photographs, however, clearly show it was a submissive bow. The President was bowing in honor of his religion of heart, that is, the Moslem faith. Obama is the author of confusion in so many ways. He claims to be a "Christian" but has clearly stated that America is not a Christian nation. He touts Islam as a great religion, he honors the gods and goddesses of pagan India, and he recently held a Jewish Seder and Passover ritual at the White House.
While in London, President Obama met Dmitry Medvedev of Russia. Medvedev put his arm around Obama and said, "My new comrade." (3) He might as well have said, "My new commissar." Indeed, something strange was going on. When Obama was in the historic city of Strasbourg, he began courting all of Europe with American-style campaigning. (4) It was as if he were running for some kind of invisible office. It was all very out-of-character for an American President. He even held a town hall meeting while in Strasbourg. (5)
While visiting Turkey, Obama made a speech which included the following words: "The partnership between the United States and the Muslim world is critical in rolling back the fringe ideology that people of all faiths reject. We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better, including my own country." (6) Does Obama know, or has he conveniently forgotten, that during the Islamic wars of the Middle Ages in Northern Africa and in Europe the blood of Christians served a special purpose? The Moslems wore a peculiar hat called a fez. It was conical with a flat top and a tassel. When Christians were killed, the Moslems dipped their hats in Christian blood to color them red. That is why to this day the Masonic Shriners wear the red fez, and it explains their use of the passwords "Mecca Nemesis," which literally means, "the revenge of Mecca."
Many attempts have been made to get various courts of law to examine the overwhelming evidence that Obama is not a natural born citizen of the United States and is not eligible under the Constitution to be President. In every case, judges and justices have rejected the cases and refused to even consider them. At one time, our nation had a Justice Department. Now, as far as they are concerned, it is a "Just Us" Department. The last attempt at an Obama citizenship suit was thrown out of court on March 6th, 2009. U.S. District Judge James Robertson said, "This case, if it were allowed to proceed, would deserve mention in one of those books that seek to prove that the law is foolish or that America has too many lawyers with not enough to do." Robertson then proceeded to threaten the attorney that brought the suit against Obama for violating the court's rules against frivolous and harassing cases. (7) One thing is certain, there will be no frivolous cases on Judgment Day when the Almighty passes judgment on the judges, justices, and others of that ilk. Our U.S. Supreme Court will no doubt get some of the worst of it!
Obama continually promotes his confusing agenda. On March 19th, 2009, the Wall Street Journal featured a story that revealed Obama's plan to release 250 terrorist detainees into the United States. In some cases, the countries that these detainees are from are refusing to take them back. Thus, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said that they are likely to be released here in America. (8)
Mr. Obama has also become quite adept at picking the worst of the worst for high level positions. His choice of Dawn Johnsen to head the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel is a prime example. When Johnsen was a lawyer with the National Abortion Rights Action League, she issued a brief which said, "Forcing women to bear children was disturbingly suggestive of involuntary servitude, prohibited by the 13th Amendment, in that forced pregnancy requires a woman to provide continual physical service to the fetus in order to further the state's asserted interest." (9) In other words, she is stating that if a woman becomes pregnant and is forced by law to carry that child to full birth, it forces her to perform slave labor to the child and violates the thirteenth Amendment against slavery! This is directly in line with Obama's thinking!
Just what is Mr. Obama thinking, and how does his mind work? In a recent interview on the program "60 Minutes," Steve Kroft interviewed President Obama, primarily regarding the U.S. economy. During the interview Mr. Obama stated the following: "I believe the global financial system remains at risk of implosion with the failure of Citigroup or AIG, which could touch off an even more destructive recession and potentially depression." When Obama made these and other such statements, he was continually smirking, chuckling, and laughing, which stunned Steve Kroft. Kroft said to the President, "You're sitting here and you are laughing. You are laughing at some of these problems….are you punch-drunk?" Obama replied by laughing again and said, "No, no. There's gotta be a little gallows humor to get you through the day." (10) There you have it! Our economy is crumbling, America is choking on debt and going down for the last time, our major corporations are down for the count, millions of Americans are out of a job and are losing their homes, families are being separated and destroyed, and Obama laughs at it all and calls it "gallows humor." It is a sad fact that our nation is on the gallows, blindfolded, and with a noose around the neck; and our President is laughing as he prepares to pull the lever!
Financial Intrigue and Satan's New Order!
On April 1st, 2009, Reuters News Service reported that in the month of March 2009 another 742,000 jobs were lost in the private sector! (11) There are now thirteen million Americans who are jobless and have very little hope of finding any kind of sustainable work. (12) The economy is being purposely and systematically destroyed to create a vacuum that will demand a new one-world economy under an antichrist dictatorship. It is all happening just as the Bible said it would. The once highly sought after "blue chip stocks" are now trading below one dollar per share. (13) All of the bailout and rescue programs of the Federal Government have miserably failed, just as they were designed to do. Now the U.S. Postal Service is begging for a bailout as they have been running a deficit of around three billion dollars. (14) In the midst of all of these cries for help by banks, institutions, and enterprises, there are untold amounts of graft. fraud, and corruption. Why did the Pentagon spend one million dollars on two washers worth 38 cents? (15) How did our financial rescue plan reach the point where it nearly equals our entire gross domestic product or GDP? Our Federal Government now has commitments topping 12.8 trillion dollars. (16) Since light travels at approximately 186,000 miles per second, and thus, travels a distance of six trillion miles in one year, our bailout commitments can now be measured in comparison with light years!
There is so much intrigue and secrecy surrounding our government regarding the financial bailout programs. On April 1st, 2009, the U.S. Treasury Department was still absolutely refusing to disclose bank bailout details. The entire operation is vague and without oversight. (17) The agenda of Barack Obama, however, is becoming quite clear. The Wall Street Journal stated it very clearly on April 5th, 2009, with the following words: "Obama wants to control the banks." Obama has made it known that any bank that accepted bailout money will be under his direct control, and he has refused to allow banks to return the money and back out of the trap that was set for them. (18) Why would the government refuse to accept the money when the banks are begging them to take it back? They now realize that because they had put their snouts into the trough of the Federal Government they are irreversibly snared by Marxist Socialism. To cement the fact that socialism is the order of the day, the Washington Post published an article on March 24th, 2009, with the shocking headline as follows: "U.S. Seeks Expanded Power to Seize Firms." (19) We already know that President Obama personally fired the chief executive officer of General Motors and actually got away with doing it. Since when does an elected official have such power over private enterprise? The Federal Government is now forcing General Motors into bankruptcy. The terminology used by the Federal Government as they interact with General Motors is quite unique. They say they are "easing General Motors into a controlled bankruptcy." (20) Obama's Washington is becoming heavy with power, and he is just getting started. The handwriting is on the wall!
How did things get this way? Could so many people make that many mistakes? How could the banks make so many bad loans? Why were five million illegal immigrants granted mortgages? (21) Now we have learned that the U.S. Government has set up a website to help people cope with financial worries. People who log onto the "big brother" site are counseled regarding depression, suicide, mental illness, and other problems. It also lists the warning signs as "persistent sadness, crying, excessive anxiety, lack of sleep, constant fatigue, excessive irritability, and anger." (22) All of these conditions are the bitter fruit of the Obama election. If you log onto the government site, they will no doubt mark you in their data bases as unstable and reactionary. That is why I will not print their website in this newsletter.
On April 1st, 2009, also known as April Fools' Day, the G-20 Summit began in London, England. The major nations of the world gathered at the ExCel Hotel, which is a bizarre-looking building with a large glass pyramid in front of it. (23) Headlines in major newspapers around the world all featured the breaking news of this meeting that would change everything forever. Bloomberg News Service featured the following headline: "G-20 Shapes New World Order With Lesser Role for U.S., Markets." (24) The Matt Drudge Report displayed a picture of various world leaders, including Obama, with the words "Saved the World Today!" (25) It was here at this strange and clandestine meeting that the final groundwork was laid for the forthcoming one-world dictatorship and new universal global money system. It was Satan's business, and I am sure the demons frolicked among the elitists. Seated right next to Michelle Obama was J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter witchcraft books. (26) All such high-level meetings need a resident witch to direct the activities of demons in the spirit realm. Why else would Rowling be at a political and economic meeting? High-level satanic activities are always sealed in a blood covenant, and just as the meetings were ending, a mass killing took place in Binghamton, New York, leaving exactly thirteen victims dead before the mind-controlled gunman killed himself. (27) The timing was precise.
On April 1st, 2009, when the G-20 Summit began, the world leaders went first to Buckingham Palace, where they met with the Queen of England, who was seated front and center with the world leaders. (28) Before the summit was over, the leaders of the world also met with Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, where they all agreed to support his plan to put billions of dollars into saving the rainforests of the world. (29) What strange spiritual purpose does this age-old British monarchy have in the final days of time? Something strange is arising!
In the United States, conditions continue to deteriorate under Obama's "rule." Many Americans are now beginning to wake up to smell the stench of what is happening. On April 15, 2009, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued a warning that they are watching large numbers of right-wing protestors, including those who oppose abortion, Obama's financial policies, and numerous other issues. A special mention was made of anti-abortion groups as right-wing radicals. (30) The American Gestapo (Homeland Security) wants all of these Americans to know that they are suspect and are being watched closely! This report was issued on April 15th, or income tax day. This day, April 15th, 2009, is also the day when massive protests known as "tea parties" are being held simultaneously in over three hundred locations in all fifty states! (31) In addition to that, the state of Texas is raising its voice loudly against Washington, D.C. Texas Governor Rick Perry, with strong backing, is sponsoring House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states' rights under the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. (32) I heard the Texas Governor's speech, and it sounded just like the speeches that preceded the American Civil War. The Governor was forceful and direct, and he essentially told Washington, D.C., to get out of Texas. He also stated that Texas has the power and resources to do very well on its own. It appears that we are at the very beginning stages of a revolution within the United States.
This troubled world has more than money problems. We have wars, rumors of wars, and the continual threat of a World War III. The entire Middle East is a powder keg waiting to go off as Iran gains in strength with the backing of Russia. The United States and company have now killed one million Iraqis in a war that never made sense from the start. (33) We were not attacked by Iraq! One primary reason why the United States is hated so much is not because of our so-called liberty as George Bush kept saying, but rather because the United States has the bad habit of meddling in the affairs of so many other nations. Now the United States has announced that they will push hard for a Palestinian State, and they acknowledged that it will be with much trouble. (34) The political maneuvering in the Middle East is dangerous business, and this activity is what will ultimately trigger the final World War. In Zechariah 12:2-3, the prophet warned us as follows: "Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it." Yes, the earthly Jerusalem does have a role in the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. A cup of trembling is one that cannot be carried without spilling its contents, and a burdensome stone is one that takes every effort to try to move, but without success. This problem has been going on for thousands of years, and Hillary Clinton certainly is not going to fix it! It is late in time, however, and something is going to give very soon!
The election of Barack Obama was a promotion to complete incompetence. When North Korea recently launched a long-range missile, they were challenging Obama and the rest of the world. North Korea won because when they launched it, the rest of the world did absolutely nothing. It will not be long until incidents intensify. We have Somali pirates attacking ships on a continual basis, and no one seems to know how to stop them! The world is in a state of confusion, and there is never a clear definition of who the enemies are. Russia recently announced that they are creating an Arctic military force. (35) Both Russia and Red China continually threaten the United States, but when it comes to economics, they all gather in London and put their arms around each other and call each other "comrade." Apparently, enemies can be friends when they have a scheme in common! From this satanic confusion will come forth an Antichrist who will define all things according to the dictates of hell!
It is almost beyond comprehension how wicked this end time society has become. People do not think at all like they once did. If the thinking and actions of this society of today could suddenly be transferred back to the society of fifty years ago, the people of that time would think they were suddenly living in hell. We have degenerated into an antichrist society through gradualism, and now the earth is ready to receive her king!
Homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals, transsexuals, and so on are a sure sign of the very end of the world. The sodomite movement has become a large and accepted one with full government protection. On April fourth, the state of Iowa legalized "gay marriage," and other states are rapidly planning to do the same. (36) Fire and brimstone fell on Sodom and Gomorrah; why should America escape the wrath of the Almighty?
Witchcraft is another sure sign of the end. Groups and organizations are forming all across America that are designed to merge so-called "Christianity" with Wicca and other forms of witchcraft. One such group has been formed in Traverse City, Michigan, and is called the Area Council on Religious Diversity, or ACORD. (37) The group is made up of witches, Unitarian Universalists, and even Quakers. Our society, and especially mainstream Christianity, has been deeply affected by the saturation of witchcraft under the guise of entertainment. The Harry Potter books and movies, the television programs, and even the toy industry have all been turning hearts toward Wicca and the occult. This is happening worldwide. One example is Australia. According to Dr. She' D'Montford, an Australian High Priestess of witchcraft, there are 130,000 initiated witches in Australia. (38)
All of this rebellion against God has taken another reprehensible form that is detestable to Almighty God. Abortion is the worst form of murder, and it is legal in America, the United States of Babylon! We must remember that there is a spiritual reason for all of this baby killing. It is human sacrifice to the Devil. In Jeremiah 2:34 we read as follows: "Also in they skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these." Here let it be known that on April 2nd, 2009, Katherine Hancock Ragsdale, an openly lesbian minister in the American Episcopal Church, preached a sermon entitled "Our Work is Not Done." In her sermon, she blatantly stated that "abortion is a blessing." She also called for unrestricted abortion in every city, village, town, and military base. (39) We have also leaned that the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinic's Surgery Center made secret plans to perform late-term, second trimester abortions at its facilities. When it became known, thirty Wisconsin legislators, massive groups of protestors, and a petition with twenty thousand signatures all appealed to the hospital board to stop their plans to use their publicly funded surgery center to do the late-term abortions. On February 6th, 2009, the surgery center board members ignored every plea and voted unanimously to proceed with the baby killings as planned! (40)
On March 23rd, 2009, Almighty God made a direct statement against abortion, which was nothing short of a miracle. On that day, an airplane crashed into a cemetery near Butte, Montana. On board the chartered plane were the family and friends of Dr. Irving (Bud) Feldkamp, and there were no survivors. Dr. Feldkamp of northern California was waiting at the entrance of an ultra-exclusive ski resort for everyone on the plane to arrive, so they could join him there. Dr. Feldkamp and his family were heavily involved in the abortion industry. Feldkamp is the owner of the largest chain of abortion clinics in America, and his clinics all perform late-term abortions. He became filthy-rich and a multi-millionaire from blood money from the slaughtering of babies. The truly amazing part of this is that the cemetery where the plane crashed was unique in one special respect. This cemetery contained a special monument that was set up by pro-life and anti-abortion groups, and the monument carried the inscription "The Tomb of the Unborn." It is there that the plane crashed, and all fourteen people on board perished. (41)
Signs in the Creation!
The Lord speaks to his people in many ways, and He told us to watch and pray. The earthquakes continue in great numbers. There have been 320 significant quakes within the past 30 days of this writing, including a massive undersea quake with a magnitude of 7.9 in the Tonga region. (42) Hundreds were killed and thousands injured, and there was extensive damage to Roman Catholic sacred artifacts. Strong aftershocks were also felt in Rome! (43) The earth seems to be rumbling continually now, and in Alaska the Mt. Redoubt Volcano erupted five times in late March 2009. (44) In addition to that, strange lights appeared along the East Coast of the United States from Maryland in the north to North Carolina in the south. The National Weather Service said there is no scientific explanation for the orange and green fireballs and the loud noises that accompany them. (45) In addition to this, the NASA Chandra X-Ray Observatory photographed a gigantic glowing blue hand in space in the area of PSR B1509-58. The mysterious hand is seen reaching for a beautiful, circular glowing crown! (46) We have this photo available upon request, but please help us with postage if you can. God is revealing awesome things to us!
In closing, I want to thank all of you who support this end time prophetic ministry. I pray you are greatly blessed. Your prayer requests are always welcomed, and they will receive individual attention. Grace and peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus.David J. Meyer
