The Fall of the United States of Babylon!

"And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies."

Revelation 18:1-3

"Babylon hath been a golden cup in the Lord's hand, that hath made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad. Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed: howl for her; take balm for her pain, if so be she may be healed. We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies."

Jeremiah 51:7-9

"Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the well-favored harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts. Behold, I am against thee, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will discover thy skirts upon thy face, and I will shew the nations thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame. And I will cast abominable filth upon thee, and make thee vile, and will set thee as a gazingstock."

Nahum 3:4-6

In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will use both the Word of God and undeniable current events to reveal the shortness of time that is left before the second coming of our Saviour and His final judgment upon this wicked world. One of the most notable events that takes place just prior to our Lord's return is the fall and absolute demise of the greatest nation on earth. With spiritual discernment, we must understand that when the Bible speaks of Babylon, it is not speaking only of that ancient nation and empire that fell to the Medes and Persians thousands of years ago. Long after the fall of ancient Babylon, we find the New Testament book of Revelation tells us of a future Babylon that exists in the last days. It is a latter day nation that rises to become the greatest economic power in the world and exerts its power and influence everywhere. This latter-day Babylon also has a mystery composite religion of compromise that seeks to unify all of humanity under a universal Luciferian tolerance. Then, shortly before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, the latter-day Babylon begins to crumble and rot from within until it falls suddenly! All of this being true from the Word of God, we should be able to see it happening right now, and we do! Everyone knows that something is drastically wrong with the United States of America, but most are turning their heads and pretending they just do not see!

The erstwhile great United States of America has become the United States of Babylon, and it is falling, falling! The signs of this in reference to the Word of God are everywhere. The great sign of the collapse of our nation came on September 11th, 2001, when the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City were destroyed by satanic conspiracy. These two pillars, reaching one-quarter mile high, were the pride of our nation's gateway in the East. Since these two great pillars tumbled straight down into their own footprints, our nation has never been the same. When I think about this, I am reminded of Judges 16:27, which tells us of the incident when Samson was brought to the massive Temple of Dagon, the god of the Philistines. Incidentally, the image of the god Dagon had the same fish head shaped hat that the Pope wears to this day. Samson was chained as a prisoner and object of derision between the two support pillars that held up the building. God gave Samson one more surge of strength and he moved the pillars. The temple of Dagon fell and killed approximately 3,000 men and women. On September 11th, 2001, two great pillars at the Eastern gate of our nation were brought down, and approximately 3,000 men and women were killed. Was this Satan's vengeance because of what happened to his Temple of Dagon, and is it a sign from Almighty God that our nation began to fall dramatically at that point?

We must also reference Isaiah 33:18 which reads as follows: "Thine heart shall meditate terror. Where is the scribe? Where is the receiver? Where is he that counted the towers?" Isaiah 30:25 also declares, "And there shall be on every high mountain and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall." Quite obviously, the fall of the World Trade Center was a time marker indicating the fall of latter day Babylon! Rivers and streams in the high hills is a Bible metaphor for prosperity, which suddenly began to change to economic catastrophe. These are also days of great slaughter in American Babylon by means of abortion, manufactured epidemics, and "vaccinicide."

Truly, these are trying times, and the coming of the Saviour draweth nigh! If you are reading this and you have never personally met the Lord Jesus, what are you waiting for? Time is running out. Call upon him right now with a true heart, and He will save you and give you peace now and for all eternity!

The Strange Forces of Barack Obama!

On May 1st, 2009, which happens to be the witches' high cross-quarter sabat of Beltaine, Reuters News Service featured the following headline: "Obama Reveling in U.S. Power Unseen in Decades." (1) It was no coincidence that the headline didn't say "power not seen" but rather "power unseen." Truly, there are unseen powers at work. Dr. Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Illuminati, referred to that unseen power as the controlling unknown.

The power of Obama intensified even more with the approaching of Beltaine when on April 29th Senator Arlen Specter, a Republican from Pennsylvania, became a Democrat and greatly shifted the power in the U.S. Senate in favor of Obama. (2) The people of Pennsylvania elected Specter because they wanted a Republican, and thus, he turned his back to the electorate of his state. This is exactly the kind of man that Obama likes to have around him.

The antichrist overtones and rank blasphemy that surround the Obama presidency is increasing in a sickening crescendo. To commemorate the 100th day of Obama in office, a painting entitled "The Truth" was to be placed on display at New York City's Union Square. The picture featured Obama in front of the presidential seal with arms in a crucifix position and wearing a crown of thorns. His head was bowed down as a suffering messiah. President Obama did not object to the painting, but thankfully, there was such a public outcry against this blasphemy that the event had to be cancelled! (3)

Obama made it very clear on his 100th day in office that he is "remaking America." He didn't say rebuilding, but remaking! Does Obama consider himself to be the Mighty Maker? While honoring himself at a dinner commemorating his 100th day in office, Obama said the following words: "I would like to talk about what my administration plans to achieve in the next 100 days. During the second 100 days, we will design, build and open a library dedicated to my first 100 days. I believe that my next 100 days will be so successful, that I will complete them in 72 days - and on the 73rd day I will rest." (4) The inference of deity here is obvious, but why the 73rd day? The 100th day of Obama was April 29th, 2009. Seventy-two days added to that brings us to July 10th, 2009. Obama intends to rest from his creative labors on Saturday, July 11th. Saturday is the seventh day of the week, but in addition to that, we must consider the date itself as 07/11/09. Since zeros must be disregarded and since witches use backward masking, we find that if we look at Obama's 73rd day backwards it is 9-11-7. The number seven indicates sanctity and completion, and we all know the significance of 9-11. What is this man planning? Time will tell! It is also interesting to note that on March 31st, 2009, the Traverse City Record-Eagle reported a story out of Washington stating that a new $3.5 billion laser has just been completed and is now ready for use. The word laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. This laser was developed by the National Ignition Facility of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California. This laser is capable of simulating the energy force of a hydrogen bomb and the sun itself! (5) I am reminded of Revelation 13:13, regarding the second beast, which reads as follows: "And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men."

Another interesting incident took place when Obama recently made a speech at Georgetown University. Obama refused to come to this Roman Catholic Jesuit School unless the symbol IHS was covered up. The many statues, crucifixes and other relics didn't bother Obama, but he could not tolerate the letters IHS. Those letters are understood to mean "Jesus the Saviour of Man." This is what Obama could not tolerate. (6) The school did comply and covered up those letters in order to receive the President. In John 5:43 Jesus warned us as follows: "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." While I do not believe in any religious symbols, the inference from Obama is obvious, and he is showing his true antichrist colors! Another point that must be made regarding Obama is that he declared he would be a "no show" for the National Day of Prayer, and even though he signed the proclamation, he said he would be distancing himself from it. (7) Who is this strange President? Do we really know him, or do we really want to know him? On May 5th, 2009, the Associated Press released a story about Obama and Vice President Biden and their favorite fast food restaurant in Arlington, Virginia. It is an independent hamburger joint called Ray's Hell Burgers. (8) The hamburgers there are known as "hell burgers," and the media referred to Obama as having been to hell and back. Hell is certainly nothing to joke about!

Another amazing incident took place on the day before Obama's 100th day in office. A Boeing 747 aircraft, resembling Air Force One, buzzed the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor and then flew at an altitude of only 1,000 feet above Ground Zero. The 747 was being chased by a F-16 fighter the entire time. Southern Manhattan went into a panic as offices were evacuated and people ran down the streets screaming for fear that it was another 9-11 attack. It turned out to be an Obama photo opportunity that cost nearly one-third of a million dollars. Obama claimed he knew nothing about it and would look into it, even though it was discovered that the Federal officials threatened the New York Police Department, the Secret Service, the FBI, and the Mayor's office that if the secret got out, there would be "Federal sanctions against them." (9) New Yorkers were outraged at the stupidity of such an event. What kind of a test was this, and what will happen next? Soon we will know!

The Rise of the Marxist-Socialist Reich!

The reports continue to come in! The jobless rate is climbing in forty-six states with California at 11.2 percent! (10) The U.S. Government is now borrowing fifty cents for every dollar it spends. (11) Recent stress tests of the big banks revealed that bad assets are triple of what they were thought to be previously. (12) On March 20th, two major corporate credit unions were taken over by the Federal Government, and these two essentially affect all of the subordinate and small credit unions as well. (13) On April 17th, 2009, Federal regulators closed American Sterling Bank, based in Missouri, and the Great Basin Bank, based in Nevada. (14)

The automobile industries are all either in bankruptcy or close to it. The Federal Government is seizing them all as the Marxist-Socialist plan of Obama marches on. On April 27th, the Federal Government became the majority owner of General Motors! (15) Cities, states, counties, so-called free enterprise, and businesses of every kind are in deep trouble, and they are being forced to stick their snouts in the trough of the Federal Government! In fact, there have been so many bailouts that a top-level government economist is calling for a new agency to be set up. (16) Just as the Department of Homeland Security was set up after the twin towers came down and we had an unprecedented new American Gestapo, we will now see a new Department of Federal Bailouts. This would be nothing less than a Kremlin-like Politburo to administer and enforce socialism and bring an end to free enterprise. Apparently Nikita Khrushchev was right when he said America would be taken over by Communism from within! Babylon is falling, falling!

The Swine Behind the Flu!

On April 24th, 2009, Reuters News Service featured the following headline: "Deadly New Flu Strain Erupts in Mexico." (17) On April 27th, 2009, Mexico City was hit by a powerful 6.0 magnitude earthquake. (18) It was quite a series of events. On April 16th, Obama was in Mexico. Eleven days later came the flu outbreak, and the Mexican official that first greeted Obama and shook his hand was dead from the flu. Three days later came the earthquake! Almost immediately, the World Health Organization declared "international concern" over the so-called "swine flu." (19) The CDC, or Center for Disease Control, seemed to know a lot about this flu almost immediately and apparently in advance. The CDC issued the following statement: "A new and unusual strain of swine flu is likely widespread and impossible to contain. This new strain of influenza has shown it can spread easily from person to person. It has been found in several places, and among people who have had no known contact. This suggests that there is an unseen chain of infection and that the virus has been spreading quietly." (20) Without a doubt, this so-called "swine flu" was intentionally manufactured in a laboratory as a designer virus, which can be modified to extremes later.

Shortly after the outbreak, I received an e-mail from a close friend overseas who is a medical doctor and researcher who now practices natural medicine. This man, as a professional, had an user name and password that allowed him to access the U.S. Government's computer data on toxicology and virology. Immediately after he sent the personal e-mail to me, his password and user name to the Government website disappeared and no longer existed. The information I received is that the people who are susceptible to contracting the H1N1 "swine flu" are those who have been vaccinated within the past five years. Their bodies were set up to receive this new flu by their immunizations. I also was informed that the reason why Mexico was chosen as the launching pad for this so-called "epidemic" is because those who have tuberculosis or have had it are especially susceptible to contact H1N1. Mexico has had high numbers of people with tuberculosis. The U.S. Government website also stated that before the outbreak in Mexico, a vial of swine flu H1N1 was unaccounted for and had gone missing while being transported to a Mexican government veterinary science laboratory in Mexico. This report soon disappeared from the government website. We also know that the H1N1 virus is made up of four different genetic pieces from different virus sources and had to be intentionally produced. We know that swine flu can only be transferred to other swine. Avian flu is exclusive to birds and so on. I am sure that a pig, a bird, and a human didn't get together in a conspiracy to produce H1N1. This is diabolical fear mongering, designed to control people, and to especially steal away the faith and courage from anyone who still has such virtues.

I remember when in the very early days of Obama's campaign, people were saying, "The day that Obama becomes President is the day pigs will fly." Obama was elected, and I have been looking around to see if any pigs were flying, and sure enough -- swine flu (flew).

On May 6th, 2009, ABC News reported that the H1N1 is now expected to mutate into a new deadly strain, which would require people everywhere to receive three successive inoculations to control it. (21) The CDC admitted as far back as January 14th, 2004, that they were mixing avian and human flu viruses in a pandemic study. (22) We can be sure of one thing: all vaccines are poison. They contain decomposed protein from the pustules of sick animals and/or putrefied eggs mixed with carbolic acid, mercury, and formaldehyde. Perhaps that is why autism is epidemic among immunized children and what was once extremely rare (autism) is now quite common. Now we can understand why we now have legislation on the Federal level that protects the makers of vaccines from lawsuits if the government declares a public health emergency. (23)

The government is constantly trying to control the bodies, souls, and minds of the people. That is why they regulate food, drugs, and religion. The Federal Government absolutely hates the health food and vitamin industries because they help people to live longer. Now the Federal Government has threatened General Mills because the company has advertised that using Cheerios reduces cholesterol by 10% in one month. General Mills has provided the evidence, but they have been told that if a food is advertised as having health benefits, it must now be considered a medicine and be properly licensed and regulated. (24) Quite obviously, we cannot think of any food as having specific benefits or it becomes a medicine. Conversely, only food that has no benefits to the body of man can be freely sold without government interference. This is insanity of the first magnitude!

Controlling the Common Herd of Humanity!

It is becoming obvious and evident that true Christians are being singled out by the antichrist conspiratorial powers. On April 12th, 2009, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security published a list of the type of people they are watching. Those who are suspect include the following: religious radicals, opponents of abortion, those who believe in conspiracy "theories," believers in end time prophecy, those who have Ron Paul bumper stickers, those who have radical Christian views, and especially U.S. war veterans. (25) According to Janet Napolitano, Obama's handpicked head of Homeland Security, all veterans are potential terrorists because they are trained in military tactics. All of these so-called "potential terrorists" are listed in a government publication entitled "The Domestic Extremism Lexicon." On May 5th, 2009, the Federal Government was facing such an outcry against their incriminating lexicon that they decided to "pull back" the 11-page document. (26) Pulling back the document, however, does not mean they have had a change of heart or diabolical purpose!

In another Federal attack against true Christianity and the Word of God, the House of Representatives passed the "Hate Crimes Bill" on May 6th, 2009. The bill, known as HR1913, passed with a vote of 249-175. (27) Under the provisions of the bill, Christian ministers can be arrested and convicted if someone commits a hate crime after listening to them speak. If the minister speaks out against abortion or homosexuality, he is responsible for any radical act that follows, no matter who commits it. The penalties range from ten years to life imprisonment. The Obama-controlled Senate is expected to pass this legislation, and Obama stated that he would promptly sign it. Obama's exact words to the U.S. Senate were, "Finalize this bill and take swift action." (28)

Truly, the second coming of Christ is at hand. There is currently underway a new pre-census program in the United States, and Obama has hired 140,000 temporary workers to complete it as quickly as possible. The program is costing 700 million dollars, and the special census workers are not counting people, but rather marking the front door of every home in America with electronic GPS (global positioning satellite) coordinates. (29) Incidentally, the GPS coordinates for the front door of Obama's White House are 38.898590 latitude, and -77.035971 longitude. When you see someone standing one foot from your front door, they are marking the entrance of your dwelling for computer and satellite control purposes.

I recently received a letter from a man who reads the Last Trumpet Newsletter and was going to accept one of these temporary jobs until he found out during orientation that it was a heinous conspiratorial plot. I will not reveal his name, but he informed me that the workers were to stand one foot from the front door of every home and enter the coordinates into a hand-held computerized device. One woman in the orientation class jokingly asked, "What if a person lives in a cave?" The instructor gave the serious answer that she was to go to the entrance of that cave and enter the information. He then said, "There will be no place to hide." The workers were also told that they were not to give any information about their project to anyone or they would be fined and/or jailed! When we realize all of this, we can also better understand why Senator Judd Gregg declined the job of Secretary of Commerce. The Department of Commerce has always been in charge of the U.S. Census. Gregg was told that the Census was being taken away from the Commerce Department and would be under the direct control of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel!

I am sure we all remember the account in God's Word that tells us how the children of Israel in Egypt were commanded to mark their doors with the blood of the Passover lamb so they would be spared when the death angel passed through Egypt. Now we see Satan trying to mark our doors with the electronic blood of his Beast computer and satellite system. We are not to fear, however, for the blood of Jesus Christ prevails, and the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of our risen Saviour, stands at our doors and watches over us closely. In Revelation 3:20, we read as follows: "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me."

Everything is moving quickly now, and every morning people are waking up to discover that more rights and freedoms have been forfeited. In the state of Wisconsin, a high court, the District 4 Court of Appeals, stated that police can attach GPS units to anyone's automobile without a warrant, cause, or permission! That vehicle is then tracked and watched with perfect timing of every route it takes and every stop it makes. (30)

Resistance to the Obama Administration is rising, however. We know that the state of Texas under Governor Rick Perry, has declared their state to be sovereign and not subject to everything Washington, D.C., is dishing out. The state of South Carolina is now proceeding to do the same thing! (31) In addition to that, on May 5th, 2009, the House members of the state of Oklahoma overrode Governor Brad Henry, who vetoed a resolution to declare Oklahoma a sovereign state! (32) These events are so similar to what happened shortly before the American Civil War! Drastic and amazing things are beginning to happen!

Warnings from the Almighty!

The very creation of God continues to cry out against the sin and rebellion of man. The U.S. Geological Survey reported 267 significant earthquakes with a magnitude of 4.0 and above within the past 30 days. Violent storms continue to race across our nation, and freak weather continues to happen with greater frequency and intensity. God does speak through His creation!

Our sinful nation is also troubled with horrifying fires on the East and West coasts. In late April, a terrible fire broke out in the area of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The roaring flames scorched more than twenty-four square miles and destroyed many homes. (33) In early May 2009 during the time of the full moon, horrifying fires broke out in the area of Santa Barbara, California. Many expensive homes were destroyed, and 5,400 homes were under mandatory evacuation orders. Fourteen thousand people were forced out of and away from their homes by the raging flames and billows of thick smoke. This fire was called the Jesusita Fire because of its location in California. (34) It appears that warnings of impending judgment upon our sin-laden nation are from the utmost East to the utmost West. It is even more amazing that the fire in the East happened exactly one week before the occultic witches' sabat of Beltaine (May 1st), and the fire in the West broke out with intensity exactly one week after that infamous day! Furthermore, both of the fires in the extreme east and west of our nation burned near the 33rd parallel of north latitude. That number thirty-three is the most sacred to Freemasonry, which is the very lodge of Lucifer, also called Satan! God is speaking! Is anyone listening?

As if we don't have enough problems, Obama's science advisor has released a statement about a new project to help control the supposed "global warming" of the earth. Dr. John Holdren, who is working closely with the President, stated that a potential plan is being made to use geoengineering, which would use technology to attempt to cool the climate and save the planet. One method Dr. Holdren advocates that is being considered by the White House and several other agencies is to "shoot pollution particles into the earth's upper atmosphere to reflect the sun's rays." (35) In reality, the whole global warming concept is a manufactured hoax to be used by the Antichrist. In reality, true scientists are gravely concerned because the sun is rapidly cooling down and is currently at both its dimmest and coolest points since measurements were kept. On April 22nd, BBC News reported that "astronomers are baffled by a quiet sun." (36) In addition to that, the National Geographic News reported on May 4th, 2009, the following headline: "Sun Oddly Quiet -Hints at Next Little Ice Age." (37)

Barack Obama knows as much about true science as I do about piloting a submarine, but he is interested in the stars for another reason. As most readers of this newsletter know, I was once an adept occultic astrologer, and astrology is witchcraft of the first magnitude! In fact, you cannot practice witchcraft without astrology. Here let it be noted that Barack Obama made a speech on the 13th day of May 2009 from the South Lawn of the White House. The speech was regarding health care reform, and during the speech he stated that the Health Care Bill must be on his desk by the last day of July. That day is known in witchcraft as the Eve of Lughnasaid (loo-na-sah), also called the sabat of the harvest of souls. Obama concluded his speech, facing the southern sky where the ecliptic line (or zodiac) is located, with the following words: "We've got to get it done this year, both in the House and in the Senate; and we don't have any excuses; the stars are aligned." (38) This was spoken like a true illuminist!

In closing, I once again sincerely thank all of you who support this end time prophetic ministry. God bless and keep you in the short time that remains. We continue to welcome your prayer requests as our prayer teams are waiting to bring your need to the throne of the Saviour. Grace and peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
