“Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? For they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose. Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.”
“How is the faithful city become an harlot! It was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water; Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.”
“Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever, Amen. For this cause, God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind……”
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will look intently at our erstwhile great nation of the United States of America from a scriptural and spiritual perspective. As we do this, we will especially focus on this awesome question: What happens to a nation that has forsaken God for so long that finally God forsakes that nation? What would become of such a nation as that? What would be the characteristics of a nation that has damned itself to the extent that Almighty God would withdraw His restraining power and allow the critical mass of sin and iniquity to increase to a point of total meltdown? This is what happened to Israel long ago, and now it is happening to America.
In the Bible verses above, we find those horrifying words, “God gave them up!” We also find the distressing words, “God gave them over to a reprobate mind!” When a nation is left alone with Satan, what happens to its people, government, economy, educational systems, and every other endeavor? A nation that has been forsaken by the Almighty would be one whose government is full of scandals, corruption, and sexual sins. It would be a government that is insensitive to the violence of war. The economy of such a nation would be one of massive debts, foreclosures, and bankruptcies. Foreign economic powers and cartels would come into that God-forsaken country and buy businesses and industries, and they would bring their false gods and religions with them.
Sexual sins, smut, and filth would fill that nation. Pornography shops would be built along its highways, and vulgar entertainment and “gentlemen’s clubs” would spring up everywhere. Cable and satellite television and the Internet would become an erotic wonderland of pimps, prostitutes, and whoremasters in an electronic red light district connected to every home and office.
Religions would be filled with satanic inventions, Eastern mysticism, sexual scandals, and perversion. Even rank witchcraft would be “Christianized” and taught to the children. Music manufactured in hell would fill the churches with pounding drums and blaring amplifiers. Gospel magicians, clowns, and ventriloquists would entertain the deceived masses of dead churchianity. Spiritual discernment would quickly become non-existent!
If a nation were forsaken by Almighty God, it would have streets full of corrupted and crooked business men and women, and there would be young people with bizarre clothing, wild hair colors and styles, and bodies that are pierced and tattooed. Young girls would cause the eyes of many people to sin by a public display of their bodies as they proudly wear clothes that hardly cover the essentials. The people of this nation would have two other things in common. They would have a cellular phone “glued” to their ears, and they would all be on some kind of drug, either prescription or otherwise. Diseases would be manufactured, and small corner drug stores would give way to massive drug outlet stores with long lines of people inside and at the drive-through; all waiting for their legal fix.
A nation forsaken by Almighty God would be one that kills its own young, especially the unborn, because Satan demands blood sacrifice. The people of such a nation would develop an insatiable desire for sex and violence. Homosexuals and lesbians would be honored and protected by the government and religious leadership of a God-forsaken nation. Perverts would boldly rise up and parade their sodomite cause, and laws would be passed in the guise of genocide and hate crime legislation to protect the sodomites and severely penalize anyone who would dare to speak against them.
Much more could be said about what would happen to a nation that has been given over to its own devices and rejected by the Almighty, but truly and sadly, these are the very conditions of the United States of America at this present time! It is also true that one of the worst judgments that God could send upon a nation is to leave it to its own devices until sin and iniquity eat away at it with a spiritual cancer and bring it to a slow and agonizing spiritual death. As that nation that has mocked God for so long breathes its last breath, it dies as a sick and vicious traitor to the Saviour who had stretched out his gracious hand to them for such a long time.
This is a lost and dying nation and world, but you do not have to die with it. By faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, you can pray now and truly repent of all sin and iniquity. God will hear you and abundantly pardon you. Then go on and obey the Gospel. Do it now, while a little time remains! Eternity is directly ahead!
The Dismantling of “Mother Earth”!
As the Saviour continues to warn people everywhere to repent, He is fulfilling Scripture by shaking the earth itself and allowing the dynamics of His creation to revolt and convulse against sinful man. Deluded people refer to the creation as Mother Nature or Mother Earth because of the heavy influence of witchcraft. The mother concept is very important in Wiccan witchcraft, and female witches believe they pass through three corridors of time: the maiden, the mother, and the crone. Our society is preoccupied with the worship of a spiritual mother from the cradle to the grave. Children are taught Mother Goose, and when they grow up and graduate from college, their college becomes their Alma Mater, which means bountiful mother. Here let it be noted that Mother’s Day is traditionally the Sunday nearest to the 13th day after the Beltaine sabat, because witches believe that is the day when the new spring comes to full blossom in Mother Earth. Society quickly adapts to witchcraft thought.
Truly, many judgments from God are coming forth involving earth, wind, fire, and water. The earthquakes that are now happening are so many that I cannot begin to list them all in this newsletter. Many hundreds of them are happening every month that are magnitude four and above. On April 29th a rare earthquake with a magnitude of 4.3 struck southern England. Structural damage to buildings was widespread, there were some injuries, and the people of that region were greatly terrified at the intensity of the quake. Roofs were twisted and chimneys littered the streets everywhere. (1)
On May 8th another rare earthquake with a magnitude of 4.6 struck near Sheridan, Wyoming. The quake was felt over a widespread area in Wyoming and Montana, including Helena, Montana. (2) This quake is significant, because it involves the same tectonic plates as the worrisome Yellowstone Caldera, which has the potential to devastate one-half of the contiguous United States and is currently under strong magmatic pressure.
On April 15th, the Ides of April, 2007, a mammoth and violent storm slammed the East coast of the United States. From South Carolina to the New England states, fierce winds and heavy rain and snow slammed the vast area. New York City was soaked with 5.5 inches of rain, and some areas to the north were paralyzed with 18 inches of heavy, wet snow. Power lines were knocked down, and tornadoes were spawned resulting in numerous deaths and injuries. (3) Weather records were broken throughout the region during this third week of spring.
On May 5th, 2007, the mid-section of the United States began to experience the fury of tornadoes. Greensburg, Kansas, a town of 1,500 people, was literally wiped off the map. City administrator Steve Hewitt said that 95% of the city was completely destroyed. The path of this tornado was 1.4 miles wide, and everyone lost their homes. (4) Nine people were killed by this storm. But it was not over! On the very next day, waves of new tornadoes, like whirling demons, tore through the six states of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Iowa. It was a terrible and awesome sight as sixty tornadoes touched down in six states. (5)
Most people will not make the connections of what is happening in our country, because most people do not think spiritually. First the quaking of the earth came, then the force of sixty destroying whirlwinds in six states appeared, and finally the fires came! On the Eve of the witches’ sabat of Beltaine or May 1st, a day that honors Baal, the fire-god, a massive inferno broke out on the Bay Bridge between the cities of San Francisco and Oakland, California. A fuel tanker truck accident caused flames to rise two hundred feet into the air. The heat was so intense that a significant portion of the expressway bridge melted and collapsed. (6) It is important to note that the San Francisco Bay area has more initiated witches in it per capita than any other place in the world.
The Bay Bridge fire of Beltaine Eve was only the beginning of fires in our nation, which continue to burn as I write this letter on May 15th, 2007. Before I elaborate on that point, I must mention that it was just over one year ago on May 2nd, 2006, when a massive fire in New York fulfilled a vision that I saw a number of months before it happened. In the vision, which I printed in a previous newsletter, I saw a large square-type of building with a body of water in the background located in New York City. It suddenly exploded and burst into flames with massive devastation to the entire area. I am now looking at an article from the New York Daily News with a photograph and story of the Greenpoint fire on its one-year anniversary. The cause of the fire is still unsolved, and the area is described as an “ashen wasteland.” Six city blocks of waterfront in Brooklyn were wiped off the map, and fifteen large buildings were completely destroyed. (7) It looked as though hell itself had risen to the surface in New York City. Why was this not a major news story? Apparently, people are more interested in Hollywood distractions.
As previously mentioned, the Bay Bridge fire was only the beginning of infernos, and numerous significant fires continue to burn to this day. On the East coast of our country, massive fires burned in southern Georgia and moved into Florida. Other fires burst forth in Florida until 225 fires were blazing, and literally every county in the state was burning. No rain was in sight as tropical storm Andrea swirled one hundred miles off the coast of Georgia to provide strong winds to fan the fires. As far south as Miami, the smoke over Florida is yet so intense that birds are falling from the sky by the hundreds. Business owners say that confused birds are slamming into windows all day long. Including all Georgian and Floridian fires, over 250,000 acres have burned thus far. (9)
On the far West coast, the entire California island of Santa Catalina is burning and had to be evacuated. (10) This is the beautiful and popular resort island made famous by a song that started with the words: Twenty-six miles out to sea, Santa Catalina is the place to be. The number twenty-six is notable in the occult as a double thirteen or the unified efforts of two covens of witches. Truly, there are many signs of God’s judgment, both great and small. I must also mention that the state of California has the pornography industry as one of its largest sources of wealth. It has also been hit by so much judgment from God that the giant insurance company Allstate announced that they would stop insuring homes in California beginning in July, 2007. (11)
These are truly the times of fearful sights as prophesied in Luke, chapter 21. With severe drought in many areas, raging fires on both coasts, severe flooding in the Middle States, a deadly virus killing the fish in the Great Lakes, (12) and countless other such things going on; we know these are the last days!
There are also an ever-increasing number of strange things happening in the heavens as well. Astronomers have been watching what is called the Helix Nebula. This nebula appears to be a giant cloud of gasses in space that has the exact shape of a single eye in minute detail. It has a blue-green iris and a bright red pupil. (13)
I read with amazement, another story about a recent discovery. Astronomers have recorded what they call heavenly music being bellowed out by the sun’s atmosphere. The Royal Astronomical Society in Britain announced that looping magnetic fields along the sun’s outer region or corona are carrying a magnetic sound. Dr. Robertus von Fay-Siebenburgen, an astro-physicist, said the music given off by the sun is like that of a pipe organ. (14) When I read this, I was immediately reminded of Ezekiel 28:13-15 as follows: “…..The workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.”
Is our own sun now playing a funeral dirge for the earth as the sounds of pipe organ music in electro-magnetic high frequency are projected from its fiery surface? Time is short, and it is time for all people to repent!
A Nation in Pain!
On April 16th, 2007, just one month ago, our nation was shocked as the deadliest shooting in U.S. history took place on the campus of Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. When the shooting was over, thirty-three people were dead, and a shocked nation and world wondered what had happened. Police are still saying there is no known motive or visible reason why the 23-year-old South Korean-born Seung-Hui Cho stood with an expressionless face and fired over 170 shots which killed 32 people. (15) (16) Cho then killed himself and became victim number thirty-three. We know that the number thirty-three is constantly in the news and is the most sacred number in the esoteric lodges of the Grand Orient, also known as Free and Accepted Masons. We must note that the young murderer was raised in suburban Washington, D.C. (17) The day he committed the murders was April 16, the very day when the organization that was the predecessor of our CIA produced the first mind control-drug known as LSD or Lysergic Acid Diethylamide. This government-invented drug was popularized by Dr. Timothy Leary during the 1960’s, and Dr. Leary himself stated that when the drug is used, you do not hallucinate. He went on to say that the drug enables you to see another world that does exist. It is a world of grotesque creatures of all types, colored dry rain drops, and swirls of light. That world is Satan’s realm, which is not visible to the human eye. The drug forms a bridge over the troubled waters of reality or over the River Styx to a new world of the gods, according to occult teaching. This is the drug that was invented on April 16th, 1943. Without a doubt, this young man, who was raised close to Langley, Virginia, was a Manchurian candidate, which means he was brainwashed and programmed to do what he did for occult, satanic purposes.
A number of other things must be noted. The time of the first announcement of the tragedy was 13:26. There we have those numbers again: 13 and 13 doubled or 26. There were two incidents of shooting. The Virginia Tech campus is in Blacksburg, which means Black Mountain. The campus occupies 26 acres of land, once again a double 13. The volume of traffic through the campus each day averages exactly 11,000. At the initial news conference, numerous microphones were in place without an identifying letter or numbers. Only two microphones, one on each end, were numbered: one with a “3” and the other with a “6”; in other words: 666. We must also note that the killer wore a black baseball cap backwards as many young people in gangs wear them today. (17) In Satanism, when a hat is worn backwards it indicate total surrender of the mind to the force of darkness.
This terrible incident happened during that strange period of satanic sacrifice, which happens every year just after April 15th, and especially during the thirteen days leading up to Beltaine, the high sabat of the Druid witches’ New Years Day on May 1st. The Eve of that day is April 30th, and German witches known as die hexe call that night Walpurgisnacht. The famous German writer Goethe wrote of that night in Faust, which means “fist.” As the story goes, Mephistopheles takes Faust to Brocken, the highest peak of the Harz Mountains, to revel with the witches. The Harz Mountains are sacred to witchcraft.
Many other things happened in history during this same time. On April 19, 1775, the Battle of Lexington and Concord began, and the first shot has since been referred to as “the shot heard ‘round the world.” The shots at Virginia Tech were likewise heard around the world. On April 19th, 1993, the U.S. Government massacred the Branch Davidians at Waco, Texas. On April 19th, 1995, the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, was bombed with great loss of life. April 19th, 1933, was the day when President Franklin D. Roosevelt ended the gold standard in America, which began the demise of the U.S. economy and scrapped the Constitutional edict stating that only gold and silver are lawful money. Gold and silver are traditionally measured by the ounce for economic purposes, and the abbreviation for the ounce is oz. Thus, Roosevelt became the Wizard of the ounce, or Wizard of Oz, as he began to work his magic with false paper money instead of true money. This would lead to the universal use of checks and credit cards, and eventually only electronic impulses of phantom money would be used by a people who, like the straw man, tin man, and lion, have no brain, no heart, and no courage. This is the very condition of the people of our day.
It should also be mentioned that on April 20th, which happens to be the birthday of Adolph Hitler, the Columbine Massacre took place in 1999. Truly, this is far too much to be coincidental. Do we see a pattern here? Witchcraft does exist in high places in the government of the United States of America, just as it existed in the palaces and senate chambers of ancient empires. Our sure help is our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!
Global Grief and Destruction
These last days before the return of our Saviour are truly days of wars, rumors of wars, and fearful sights. Never has the world been more unstable on such a wide-spread basis as now, and never before has such fire-power of nuclear weaponry existed. The ancient lands of the Middle East have now become the gathering place of evil spirits, and all hell will break loose as final prophecies are fulfilled. Satan is active and swift in working his final plans for complete antichrist takeover of the world, and war is a large part of that plan.
One thing that the Iraq War has accomplished is that it has worn down the United States economically and has sparked great controversy regarding everything about the war, including its purpose. Pragmatically speaking, it is self-evident that this war has been an exercise in futility for the United States. The war has, however, fulfilled the will of the Illuminati masterminds of the global conspiracy. We must remember that the Illuminist elitists have always harnessed the powers of controversy and opposition to bring about a desired result. The United States is now, more than ever, a demoralized nation.
On that historically eventful day of April 19th in this year of 2007, Senator Harry Reid, the Senate Majority leader, announced to the world that the “Iraq War is lost.” (18) In reality, there never was a plan to win the Iraq War, and that fact was admitted by the U.S. Military leaders. We know that the purpose of the war was to bring about certain conditions in the Middle East. We also know that on May 1st, 2007, the very day of the witches’ high cross-quarter sabat of Beltaine, President Bush vetoed the Troop Withdrawal Bill that was presented to him. (19) Then, on that sabat night of May 1st, 2007, President Bush addressed the nation and stated his reasons for prolonging the war in Iraq. True to witchcraft form, the President said the following words during his speech: “Troop withdrawal would result in a cauldron of chaos on American soil.” I have no doubt that both history and Judgment Day will reveal that George W. Bush was by far the worst President this nation has ever had. An Australian newspaper said it very well with the headlines: “All Bush Is Saying Is Give War a Chance.” (20) Failure is written all over everything that Mr. Bush has tried to do. I have in front of me a photograph of a large auditorium filled with men and women in uniform waiting to receive Purple Heart medals for their injuries. (21) I have another photograph of what seems like an endless line of young men and women on crutches and other devices designed to compensate for lost legs, arms, and other body parts. These are among the 20,000 young people who have suffered grave injuries during this war, and what is the purpose of it all? (22) In addition to all of that grief, the Washington Post reported on May 7th, 2007, that military doctors are now greatly concerned about four new kinds of bacteria that resist all treatment and result in many amputations of the wounded due to infections. This problem is becoming common and widespread among the American wounded. (23)
President Bush has proudly declared himself to be a war President. We know he is also an oil man. Under his leadership, or the lack thereof, we are now paying nearly $4.00 per gallon for our gasoline. Here let it be noted that on April 18th, 2007, Financial Times Magazine reported the amazing story that Iraq actually has twice as much oil as was previously revealed. (24) On May 12th, 2007, the prestigious New York Times reported that billions of dollars worth of oil are missing from Iraq and totally unaccounted for. Up to 300,000 barrels per day have been disappearing for the past four years. This is a total of over four hundred million barrels of oil. The value of this oil is over fifteen million dollars per day! Where is this oil going? (25)
Are we purposely staying in Iraq until war breaks out with Iran? On April 18th, 2007, Reuters News Service reported that Iran has underground nuclear plants and is using more than 1,300 centrifuge machines, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency, or IAEA. (26) We also know that the United States now has two aircraft carriers and major strike groups in the Persian Gulf. On May 11th, 2007, Vice President Dick Cheney stood on the deck of one of those carriers and warned Iran that the United States is ready to use its naval power to stop Iran. (27)
Strife over oil seems to be everywhere, including on our own hemisphere. On that infamous day of May 1st, 2007, President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela nationalized the vast oil fields of his country and sent in his military to drive out the world’s biggest oil companies from the world’s largest oil reserve, the Orinoco Oil Fields. (28) This will no doubt incur the undying wrath of the big oil men, and you can be sure there will be war and turmoil in Venezuela. The nation of Venezuela also formally pulled out of the International Monetary Fund and The World Bank. This will also enrage the globalists who already hate Venezuela, because that country paid off all its debts five years ahead of schedule. (29) Countries are controlled by the Illuminists through debt.
Russia has also been rising up against the United States and is threatening military action regarding the U.S. bases being built in Eastern Europe. Russian President Vladimir Putin made it clear that Russia will take appropriate action. (30)
According to a New York Times article, dated April 22nd, 2007, Russian news media has been given strict orders that the United States is always to be portrayed as the enemy! (31) In another New York Times article, dated April 21st, 2007, the Bush Administration made an offer to Russia to link the missile systems of these two super-powers. President Bush stated through a senior military officer: “This is an invitation toward fundamental integration of our systems.” (32)
Russia has also announced that it plans to build the world’s longest tunnel under the Bering Strait, linking Russia with Alaska. Russian research expert Viktor Razbegin stated that the tunnel will be sixty-four miles long and will cost between ten and twelve billion dollars. (33)
Another tunnel is being planned that will link Europe and Africa at Gibraltar. This tunnel would connect Spain with Morocco. (34) Something strange is happening in the world as entire continents are being linked together geographically and nations are scurrying under the seas in tunnel networks to further unify the world. In Isaiah 2:10, 19, and 21, we read as follows: “Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of His majesty……And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth……To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth.”
We are living in amazing times, and we are about to witness a sovereign move of the Spirit of the Almighty. We know that Israel was in bondage in Egypt for 400 years, and God brought them forth by His mighty hand. We also know there were 400 years of silence between the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. Afterward, Jesus, the Son of God, came to this earth. This year is the 400th anniversary of the United States of America, which began with the founding of Jamestown in 1607. We will watch, pray, and wait, for the glorious appearing of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. When will He appear? Are you ready to meet Him?
In closing, I once again offer my sincerest thanks to all of you who support this end-time prophetic ministry. We continue to welcome your prayer requests, and our intercessors will give each one individual attention. We have been receiving reports of miraculous healings and deliverance. I encourage you to have faith in God, for He is a very present help in trouble. Grace and peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
