America - Infested With Spiritual Bacteria!
"Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters; they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. Why should ye be stricken any more? Ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment."Isaiah 1:4-6
"Because of the multitudes of the whoredoms of the well-favoured 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
"Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see."Revelation 3:17-18
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will once again use the Word of God to reveal a true and amazing condition that has engulfed our erstwhile great nation of the United States of America. I am referring to a serious and deadly systemic infection of spiritual bacteria called sin! Sin is so much like pathogenic bacteria in so many ways. Microbiologists and bacteriologists tell us that many forms of bacteria double in number every fifteen minutes at room temperature. We also know that in one milliliter of water there are over one million bacteria. The scientists have also revealed that if all bacteria lived instead of constantly dying the entire earth would be covered with the microscopic germs to a height of six feet in just one week.
The many forms of pathogenic and deadly bacteria have killed countless millions of people over the years. Multitudes more have been sickened by these microbes. We have seen how quickly diseases spread, and we can watch the speed of bacterial growth in nutrient agar in the laboratories. It is all very serious when we consider it in depth.
There is another kind of bacteria that scientists never think about. It is spiritual bacteria, and it is the most sickening and deadliest of them all. When God looks at our world, He sees a full infestation and systemic infection of sin. The people of the earth are filthy without the saving grace of God, and they are covered with abominable spiritual bacteria, which are spreading and multiplying rapidly. In fact, the verses above reveal exactly how God sees this world of sin-laden people. In the spiritual sense, He sees wounds, bruises, and putrefying sores. He also sees abominable filth under the skirts of humanity. When Almighty God looks at the professing church as in the third portion of Scripture above, He sees a church that has a high opinion of itself; and yet it is wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked. This is how Almighty God sees all of this. Sin is highly visible to Him.
When we realize in the natural sense that our hands are continually being covered with bacteria, it makes us thankful for the emulsifying action of soap and water. The oil in the soap doesn't combine with the water but produces an emulsion that carries away the germs and leaves your hands clean. Likewise, the cleansing power of the water and the blood of Jesus Christ, our Saviour, produces a spiritual emulsion that washes all of our sins away. If you are still covered with the spiritual bacteria of this world and have never repented of your sins, repent now while there is still hope and while a little time remains. The Saviour will change your life and make you clean, no matter how severe your case is. Time is short and the earth has become a critical mass of evil, but there is hope in the Lord Jesus!
The Beast of the Potomac!
Since the election of Barack Hussein Obama to the office of President of the United States, we have been watching a strange, clandestine, and grotesque power rising in Washington, D.C. It is quite obvious that something is very wrong. Because of my background in the occult before my conversion, I cannot help but to be acutely aware of occultism in our government and religions. In the world of the occult, the number thirteen is vitally important. It is the number of witches in a coven, and it indexes the number of spells cast by them. Everything is done in thirteen's. Neophyte witches are first allowed to enter the outer court of the circle at age thirteen. That number is also instrumental in the greater and lesser arcanes of the tarot cards. In fact, in the regular playing card deck, there are thirteen cards in each suit; and the joker, which is said to be Jesus, is left out, except in games of blasphemy.
Barack Obama seems to be obsessed with the number thirteen. He recently commissioned thirteen teams of census workers to travel across our country in thirteen vehicles with banners promoting the 2010 census. Thousands of census workers are being hired temporarily with their average pay being around thirteen dollars per hour. In Obama's recent State of the Union Address, the President announced that money was being allocated to build thirteen new light rail systems that will create thirteen thousand new jobs. (1) There are so many more examples of Obama's obsession with the number thirteen that I could not mention them all in this newsletter. I must mention, however, that Barack Obama broke national tradition by refusing to give his State of the Union Address on January 20th. Instead, he chose the date 1-27-2010. In occult numerology everything is broken down to single digits, and zeros mean nothing. Thus, the date 1-27-2010 totals thirteen! This is all beyond the realm of coincidence!
I also find it most interesting that when Obama gave his State of the Union Address, Hillary Clinton did not attend. She was attending a conference in London instead. (2) Here let it be noted that on one of my trips to Washington, D.C., my party was given a private tour through the Capitol by the head of the Capitol Police. It was nothing short of a miracle as we were taken to places and into rooms where only the elite officials are allowed to go. This was the hand of Almighty God. During that private tour, we were told that when the entire government gathers in one place, such as during the State of the Union Address, one cabinet member is selected to be removed to an undisclosed "safe area" in case of an attack that would disable or destroy the government. The chief of the Capitol Police went on to tell us that if such a thing happened one cabinet member would have absolute power as a dictator to run the government! There was some speculation that Hillary was this person although the protocol states the cabinet member must be somewhere in the United States. Most people do not realize how quickly we could be under a dictatorship!
There are many unanswered questions regarding Barack Obama. I have in front of me a picture of Barack and Michelle Obama, both standing at attention with their left hands over the right side of their chests as people do when they pledge allegiance to the flag or sing to the national anthem, only in reverse. Why are the Obamas doing it backwards? (3) In the occult, this is called malediction, which is a curse. We must remember that Barack Obama is not an American. His real name is Barry Soetoro, and he was born in Kenya. He holds the office of President of the United States illegally. What demons possess this man who is called "The One" that would cause him to be stuck on himself? In one speech, he referred to himself 132 times! (4) Why is this Nobel Peace Prize winner spending more money on nuclear weapons than even George Bush? (5) On January 14th, 2010, the Associated Press reported that Obama wants another 33 billion dollars for the war push. (6) Incidentally, the number thirty-three is the number most sacred to the occult lodges of Freemasonry and the Grand Orient. We must also note that the five-sided death house, known as the Pentagon, called for a new department on 1-27-2010, the very day of the inauguration. They are calling for a new "Office of Strategic Deception." (7) The primary question is: who are the ones that are to be deceived?
Without a doubt, Barack Obama has no regard for the privacy of the American people while he himself is incredibly secretive. On February 11, 2010, Obama called for the tracking of all cell phones of the American people. The Obama Administration clearly stated the following: "Americans enjoy no reasonable expectation of privacy….." (8) It is no secret that the Federal Government has become oppressive and top-heavy. Since Obama seized power, the Federal workforce has increased to 2.15 million. The Department of Homeland Security is projected to grow by 7,000 within the next year. (9) The security of our homeland is more precarious than ever before. On February 3rd, 2010, agents from Britain's M15 Intelligence Service revealed that Muslim doctors, trained at some of Britain's leading teaching hospitals, have returned to their own countries where they are now implanting high explosives in the breasts of female terrorists. The explosive being used and disguised as ordinary breast implants is pentaerythritol tetrabitrate. (10) When have there ever been times like these, and when will all hell break loose?
We are now hearing increasing threats from Iran, and indeed, the entire Middle East is a massive powder keg waiting to explode into World War III. On January 31st, 2010, Obama ordered a significant military build-up against Iran, sending warships and missiles to that region. (11) Will we soon be fighting three wars at the same time? Armageddon is a forthcoming reality!
A Demon-Possessed Economy!
On February 1st, 2010, the Associated Press reported that the national budget set up by Barack Obama contained both record spending and a record deficit. (12) Obama is planning to spend 3.8 trillion dollars that our country does not have. The ceiling on the national debt is being raised continually, and by the end of February 2010, the current debt ceiling of 14.3 trillion dollars will likely be reached. (13) This number is difficult for the human mind to comprehend, but the spending goes on at breakneck speed like a car with its accelerator stuck. A crash is inevitable under these circumstances. The average American does not understand how their economy works, and like the children of Israel, they are dancing naked around a golden calf. In the frenzy of their idolatry, there is nothing but apathy toward truth as they eat and drink and rise up to play. We do not have a literal golden calf near Wall Street, but we do have a bronze bull in New York City, the city also known as "the naked city." (14)
We have now reached another milestone of decline in our country's history. It is now mathematically impossible to pay off the U.S. National Debt! This was verified in a recent report from Reuters News Service. (15) The sad fact is that if the U.S. Government took every penny from every bank, business, and person in America, it would not be enough to pay off the national debt. This is true because of the way the system operates. The money in our U.S. economy is not put into circulation, it is borrowed into circulation. The Federal Government must borrow the money from the private entity known as the Federal Reserve. U.S. Treasury bonds are given to the Federal Reserve in exchange for the green paper, known as Federal Reserve Notes. The Federal Reserve either keeps the Treasury Bonds or sells them. Every time the Government goes to the Federal Reserve, the debt and interest become bigger! Do we really owe beyond our ability to pay?
There are several money supply indexes. One is the M0 index, which is the total of all actual cash. This amount is just over 900 billion dollars. Next is the M1 index, which includes all actual cash and everything held in checking accounts. That amount is about 1.7 trillion dollars. The next index is the M2, which includes all of the above amounts in the M0 and M1 indexes, plus all funds held in certificates of deposit, money market funds, mutual funds, and so on. This amount is about 8.5 trillion dollars. Finally, there is the M3 index, which includes everything in the M0, M1, and M2 indexes, plus large time deposits, institutional money market, mutual funds, deposits of euro dollars, and repurchase agreements. This brings the total to nearly 14 trillion dollars, although the Federal Reserve has stopped keeping track of the M3 index. There is one more thing we must understand, and I remember this from my studies of economics in technical college and subsequent research. Most of the money in the M2 and M3 indexes does not exist. This is true because of the fact that our banks operate on the principle of fractional reserve lending. This simply means that when you deposit ten dollars the bank pays you almost nothing for interest, but it is able to lend out $100.00 on that ten dollars and collect interest on the ninety dollars that doesn't truly exist. The bank is required to keep only one dollar of your ten dollar deposit in reserve, and the other nine dollars can be loaned out. When you realize that this same procedure holds true for thousands and even millions of dollars, the amounts of phantom money becomes breathtaking. Thus, most of the money in our economy isn't really there except on record without substance. Increasing the money supply is not the answer because the only way to do that is to borrow more from Benjamin Shalom Bernanke and his Federal Reserve. (15) The whole system is crooked and is designed to perpetuate heavy and impossible debt for the Federal Government and the people of the nation. Incidentally, the Federal Reserve does demand collateral for the transactions it makes with the Federal Government. The only collateral the Federal Government can give to the Federal Reserve is the taxing power it has over the people!
The Scripture warned us long ago in James 5:3-6 about the fraudulent money system of the last days. "Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you."
These certainly are times of great trouble, and much of this trouble exists because we have a government that is so incredibly out-of-touch with the people. Near the end of last year, the Associated Press reported that one of every seven homes in America struggled to put enough food on the table. Thus, forty-nine million Americans were to some degree in a state of food deprivation. (16) With that in mind, how can the Sleazer of the House, Nancy Pelosi, justify spending $101,000.00 on liquor in the past two years while flying in Air Force jets? This is an average of $1,000.00 per week. Official receipts reveal that this money was used by Pelosi and her staff while flying, and it includes the following purchases: "Maker's Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey's Irish Crème, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey, and Corona beer." (17) In short, these official flights were nothing more than wild parties in an airborne saloon!
The Consequences of Witchcraft!
Very few people realize how pervasive witchcraft is in our world today. Witchcraft and the occult in their various forms have permeated governments, religions, entertainment, the military, and every other endeavor of man. Witchcraft comes in many forms, including Wicca, Old Order Celtic, Druidism, Shamanism, American Indian nature worship, Voodoo, Santeria, Freemasonry, Scottish Rite, York Rite, and so on. The occult also includes the use of talismans, sacred jewelry, ritual face make-up, ouija boards, scarabs, astrology, numerology, biorhythms, marijuana, psychedelic drugs, pornography, astral projection and soul travel, and levitation. Witchcraft and the occult are also found in the higher and secret levels of the Knights of Columbus, the animal lodges (Eagles, Elks, Moose, Lions), and others. In short, Satan has been walking to and fro in the earth, and up and down in it. There are far too many other involved organizations and enterprises to mention in this publication.
Witchcraft and the occult are not in the closet in these last days. These satanic practices are glorified in the movies and on television. The so-called "Christian" pagan holidays also keep witchcraft alive and thriving in our day. It must be remembered, however, that there is always a curse upon those who use the occult in any way, and it must be repented of and forsaken. It is no joke!
So much has been said about the nation of Haiti where the recent earthquake, which initially lasted only 35 seconds, eventually killed 230,000 people. This is a shocking and amazing tragedy, but we also know that many people were miraculously spared. The sad but true fact is that this nation was and is a hotbed of spiritual bacteria. Haiti is the voodoo capital of the world. Voodoo is a real religion, and it is a horrible religion of fear and terror. In this religion, evil spirits are commonly seen to "mount" people and drive them into frenzy. The primary god of voodoo is called Bondye, and the lesser spirits that are also worshipped are Iwa, the twin forces, and dead ancestors. There are six ritual functions of the voodoo priests and priestesses, and they are ritual healing, summoning and pacifying of spirits, initiation, telling the future and reading dreams, casting spells and creating protections, and the creating of potions for love and death spells. (18)
It is interesting to note that the city of New Orleans, Louisiana, has a significant Haitian population who adhere to the religion of voodoo. In fact, New Orleans is considered to be the sister of Haiti by many Haitians. We remember the great hurricane named Katrina (which means cleansing) that devastated New Orleans only a few years ago. It is quite obvious that Haiti and New Orleans are both strongholds of Satan. Recently, Sallie Ann Glassman, a voodoo priestess in New Orleans, said the following regarding the 5,000 Haitians that live in New Orleans: "They brought the rhythm, and soul of New Orleans. That's why New Orleans dances to a different rhythm from the rest of the country." (19)
There is great resentment and hatred for all Christians in Haiti. On February 1st, 2010, Max Beauvoir, the supreme master of voodoo in Haiti, complained about the aid and relief efforts offered by Christians. The voodoo master said, "The evangelicals are in control and they take everything for themselves. They have the advantage that they control the airport where everything is stuck. They take everything they get to their own people and that's a shame." (20) The real problem is these devil worshippers don't want their people anywhere near Christians, even though the Christians are offering the most help. Satan is very protective of his stronghold in Haiti, and the people suffer greatly for it.
There is another very amazing thing regarding the recent earthquake in Haiti. When the quake hit, it knocked out nearly all communications, and power failures shut down everything except for one radio station. That station was signal FM 90.5. As the buildings began to crumble and the earth convulsed violently, the man operating the radio station quickly ran outside. He had been playing music over the air and for some reason pushed the repeat button before leaving so the song would play over and over again. The song that was playing was "Hotel California" by the Eagles. The following quote is taken directly from a report by National Public Radio: "When the quake struck at 4:53 P.M. on January 12th, Signal FM was playing 'Hotel California.' The earth groaned and the building shuddered. But just before the DJ ran out, he had the presence of mind to hit the 'repeat' button. So for the first 30 minutes of Port-au-Prince's descent into hell, the only thing you could hear on the radio was the Eagles standard - over and over and over." (21) Every Satanist and most witches know full well that "Hotel California" is another name for the church of Satan. The song describes very clearly the captivating of the soul by Satanism. It even contains a verse describing human sacrifice, stating that the participants "stabbed him with their steely knives but could not kill the beast." It also describes the onlooker running for the door, where he was met by the "night man" who told him, "….we are programmed to receive, you can check out any time you want but you can never leave." It is quite amazing that this song so compatible with voodoo was the only thing playing as judgment was falling upon that pagan land. This is too appropriate to be coincidental.
Wherever witchcraft is practiced, there will ultimately be judgment! I was recently saddened, but not shocked, to find out that the United States Air Force has recently endorsed witchcraft by providing an outdoor pagan temple on Air Force Academy grounds at the Colorado Springs Base. It is being called the Stonehenge of the Rockies, and it consists of two large circles of stones: one circle inside the other, in true Druid pattern! (22) For years, I have watched witchcraft and occultism increasing in all branches of the military, especially among the officers. One of the largest populations of witches and occultists in the military is located at Fort Hood, Texas.
Great Travail in God's Creation!
One act of God that is truly obvious is the winter weather that has been covering our globe. This was supposed to be the year for all nations to unite against "global warming," so the Almighty has shown us repeatedly who is in charge. Blizzard after blizzard has crippled our nation and much of the world's northern hemisphere. Washington, D.C., had to completely shut down for several days as record snow buried that city of marble idols, tombs, mausoleums, and corruption. The snow was so intense that even Barack Obama called it the "snowpocalypse." (23) The West Wing of the White House was nearly buried with these snow crystals from Heaven. Over four feet of snow fell, and high winds from the northeast caused mountainous drifts that made roads and streets impassible. Even a Senate hearing on global warming and a speech by Al Gore had to be cancelled. One report also stated that when the government is shut down every Federal employee still collects full pay for not working, and that amounts to $100 million per day. (24) Whether they are working or not, I do not think we are getting our money's worth. This winter weather has been nothing short of amazing as even the Deep South has been hit severely with ice storms and blizzards. In Florida, large icicles were hanging off the citrus trees. (25)
One of the great signs of the end of this present world is the earthquakes, which are increasing in number, frequency, and intensity on average. Anything above a magnitude four is considered to be a significant quake. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, we have had 389 such quakes within the past thirty days as of February 11th, 2010. (26) This is an average of 12.9666 (or we can round it up to 13) significant quakes per day. This is about one notable quake every two hours. Something is going on, and much larger quakes are about to happen! We also know that on January 19th, 2010, the Denver Post reported that the Yellowstone Caldera and surrounding area is being shaken by swarms of earthquakes. (27) The most recent report I have seen reveals that there have been swarms of quakes in that area totaling over 2,000 and moving in an upward crescendo since January 24th, 2010. There have also been massive swarms of earthquakes near the Tanzanian border in Africa in recent days. (28) On Wednesday, February 10th, 2010, an earthquake struck near Chicago, Illinois, in the early morning. Some recording stations reported it as a 4.3 magnitude quake, and it was felt as far away as Madison, Wisconsin. (29) Eventually, our nation will crack apart and become three segments, according to geologists I have personally heard from.
Other strange things are going on as our earth reacts to the heavy problem of global sinning. The National Geographic Society recently reported that the Earth's north magnetic pole is moving east due to core flux. The pole is actually racing toward Russia at a speed of about 40 miles per year. (30) All of this activity indicates that the Earth is becoming continually more unstable.
So much of the Scripture is disregarded these days, and one verse we should be paying attention to is Revelation 6:8, which reads as follows: "And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth." Thus, in the last days, it appears that many of the animals will move into populated areas and prey upon the horrified and faithless people. On February 9th, the New York Post reported that numerous coyotes have been sighted in Manhattan. They have been sighted in Central Park and on the campus of Columbia University. (31) In New Smyrna Beach, Florida, bobcats have been sighted in residential areas, and many people are quite alarmed about it. (32) It appears that the wild beasts of the forests are moving closer to, and even into, the cities, even the large cities.
The Scripture also warns us that there will be signs in the heavens in the last days. NASA scientists are concerned and scared regarding the solar storms they are seeing on our sun. On January 31st, 2010, the London Times reported the following: "NASA sees the possible trouble with solar sun storms is very real. Will watch them with a new satellite. This could be the event if it ever happens that would cause worldwide panic, and disrupt modern civilization. It has a history in past events. Imagine no electronic or electrical power. Food, gas, and all communications cut off. Power companies could not even call up and order new parts to fix the blow apart grid. Many micro-electronics are blown like an EMP from atomic blast. Cars may not run." (33) Reading the words of the scientists is almost like reading the book of Revelation. It is also interesting to note that recent images from the Hubble Telescope reveal a mysterious object in space that the scientists cannot explain. It is not a comet, and it is orbiting between Mars and Jupiter. The baffled scientists have no explanation of what it is, but it has the definite shape of an upside down broken cross! (34) This is very much like the "peace symbol of antichrist," also known to witches as the "crow's foot." Almighty God is showing us many signs in the heavens and on earth. In Mark 13:37, the Lord Jesus said, "What I say unto you I say unto all, Watch."
In closing I once again thank all of you who support this end time prophetic ministry. God bless you now and in eternity is my prayer for you. Remember to send in your prayer requests, and they will be given individual attention by our teams of intercessors. Grace and peace be multiplied unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.David J. Meyer
