“And the Word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation. There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof.”
“In thy filthiness is lewdness: because I have purged thee, and thou wast not purged, thou shalt not be purged from thy filthiness any more, till I have caused my fury to rest upon thee. I the Lord have spoken it: it shall come to pass, and I will do it; I will not go back, neither will I spare, neither will I repent; according to thy ways, and according to thy doings, shall they judge thee, saith the Lord God.”
“And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will deeply consider a serious condition that exists in America, which is of the utmost urgency. What happens when a nation goes too far in resisting the one true God and His Holy Word? The above verses tell us that Old Testament Israel fell into this very condition, and the consequences were severe. Even a simple study of the Old Testament reveals that Israel fell into severe forms of idolatry, dishonesty, fraud, homosexuality, and baby killing as they lusted after the heathen societies around them. The first verse above goes so far as to use the word conspiracy in regard to the religious leaders, which brought forth the wrath of the Almighty in great measure.
The sad reality is that cleansing was available, and merciful purging from sin could have brought forgiveness and healing to their land, but it was rejected and not received by the people. These people thought they were good and righteous and that they were the greatest nation on earth. In reality, their sins were so great as to insult and blaspheme the very gates of Heaven. Why couldn’t they see themselves as God saw them? They justified themselves by philosophies and religions of their own designs. They tried to recreate God in their own image to fit the profile of their own conceited and erroneous thinking. Horrifying destruction soon followed!
The unnerving truth is that all of these very conditions exist in the United States of America at this present time. I keep hearing people say we are the greatest nation on earth, the good guys, and the role model for the entire world. In reality, our government is corrupt beyond description, our banking system is crooked, homosexuals and lesbians have preferred and protected status, pornography is near to the saturation point, babies are being killed within the very wombs that are supposed to be nurturing them, and we are a drugged and drunken population. Most people are addicted to entertainment of all types and are so distracted by it that they can no longer think. Most have never pondered anything for as long as they can remember, and neither do they care. All of this leads to enslavement and eventually to destruction.
The Bible warned us that these days would come in II Timothy 3:1-5 and in many other places as well. Very soon, judgment will fall. The only remedy is true repentance and turning away from sin and evil. We are all on the very edge of eternity right now, and we will spend eternity either in Heaven or in a condition of eternal damnation. Now is the time to pray and to surrender your life to the Saviour, our Lord Jesus Christ. Do it now! He will receive you and all will be well with your soul when you fully obey the Scripture!
Obama – The Man Who Wants to Be God!
I recently read a headline in the London Daily Telegraph that not only arrested my attention but also sent shock waves through me. The headline read as follows: “Can Barack Obama Save Us From Hell?” The article went on to tell about the worldwide global warming program that is now being spearheaded by Barack Obama. Al Gore had been the “apostle” of this program for years, but now it is Obama who is planning to be the “saviour of the world.” The article went on to say that a crucial global meeting is planned for early December in Copenhagen that will launch the program immediately! (1) Have you noticed how quickly everything is moving toward the full antichrist agenda? Have you also noticed how rapidly all existing institutions are falling apart?
On June 26th, 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Climate Change Bill. It happened during the darkest hours of the night, when the 1200-page document was tossed onto the desks of the House members. Not one Representative read it, nor did they have time to read it. The bill passed by the narrow margin of 219-212. (2) If this legislation makes it through the U.S. Senate where it is right now, our nation will never be the same again. The bill calls for heavy penalties for electrical generating facilities that burn coal, which will be passed on to the end users. Representative Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin stated that electric bills for the people of Wisconsin will increase by 170%. It was also projected that electric bills in many parts of our nation would eventually triple. Thus, we have further hardship for an already oppressed people.
The press and news media of every kind continues to deify Barack Obama. Newsweek Editor Evan Thomas made the following statement on MSNBC regarding Obama: “In a way, Obama is standing above the country, above the world. He’s sort of God.” (3) From where did this strange man named Barack Hussein Obama come, and how did he rise from obscurity? Twelve years ago, in the year 1997, while Barack Obama was being groomed and prepped for his position as President of the United States, three amazing things happened. In that year of 1997, Tony Blair, the occultist, was elected Prime Minister of Britain; Diana, Princess of Wales, died when the car she was in crashed into the thirteenth pillar of the roadway she was traveling on; and a new children’s book called Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was published. That book by Janet K. Rowling and all her subsequent books became a part of an occult blueprint that would shape the hearts and minds of an entire generation to receive the Antichrist. Witchcraft was glorified in Rowling’s books as having a good side. It was a progressive brainwashing of good witchcraft triumphing over evil witchcraft. But it was all witchcraft, and it was all of Satan! Ministers of mainstream “Christianity” also jumped on that bandwagon, and thus, they touted “good” witchcraft.
Now we are going into our thirteenth year since the first Harry Potter book was published. The latest and most recent book in the series was made into a movie also, and it is scheduled to open in theaters everywhere on July 15th, 2009. The movie takes its title from the latest Harry Potter book and is entitled Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. (4) It is more than strange and ominous that the United States of America for the first time in its history as a nation has a President that is a half-blood prince! (This is being academically stated and is not intended as a racial remark.) In the year 2010, President Obama is planning to be presented as the saviour of the planet. This is scheduled to coincide with the thirteenth year of the Harry Potter mania that has swept our world.
Another question that arises is why President Obama scowls so intensely at other heads of state around the world, but smiles profusely at dictators, such as Hugo Chavez? (5) It seems that the rest of the world recognizes Obama as a communist, but the people in the United States do not see it. Here let it be noted that the Scotsman Newspaper reported that Obama was warned in advance that when he went to Russia, he would receive a chilly welcome from the Russian people. (6) The majority of the Russian people hate communism because they lived under it for so long. They cannot be fooled and fully realize that Obama is a commissar at heart, and they have no use for him!
The signs of communist takeover are everywhere. We know that the United Nations Charter, drafted in San Francisco, California, in 1945, was copied word for word from the Soviet Constitution. We also know that the only two U.S. Senators that voted against it were the two who read it. This entire horrifying story is recorded in a message by the late Myron C. Fagan in the message entitled “Truth about the World Bankers.” (This recording is available from Last Trumpet Ministries.) Comm-UN-ism has been proliferated by the United Nations since its inception. I recently read in an article from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has become vitally important in the UN conspiracy. Milwaukee has been designated as a U.N. Global Compact City, one of only thirteen such cities worldwide. The article goes on to say that a new building on the shores of Lake Michigan will be used for many high-level political purposes, primarily water control policies. (7) We know that the Illuminati’s love affair with “Mother Earth” is witchcraft of the first magnitude, and the “Green Earth” programs provide a common-cause gimmick needed to weld the people behind the globalist’s Marxist socialism.
Another example of communism marking its territory in the United States is what is known as the Tear Drop Monument, located at Harbor View Park in Bayonne, New Jersey. (8) This strange monument was donated, designed, and built by the Russians and was formally dedicated on September 11th, 2006. It received almost no news coverage. The monument consists of a lofty stone monolith that is split and separated in the middle. In the opening is a large metallic tear drop, aligned visually with the site where the twin towers of the erstwhile World Trade Center once stood. The monument also triangulates with the Statue of Liberty. The World Trade Center was, of course, the great monument to capitalism, and communism is the antithesis of capitalism. Furthermore, the monument stands in the very place where the Bolsheviks under Trotsky trained for their Russian Revolution. It was property owned by Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Refinery, overlooking the Kill Van Kull, the busiest seaport in the world. This Tear Drop Monument is an obvious declaration in stone that communism has come to America!
On July 13th, 2009, the confirmation hearings began for Sonja Sotomayor, who is Obama’s choice for a life-long appointment to the Supreme Court. In the July issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, I reported that Sotomayor was a member of the secret society known as the Belizean Grove. Now that she is facing hearings, she has resigned from that organization, effective June 19th, 2009. This was only a few days after I wrote about it in this newsletter.
A Nation Like Unto Sodom!
In Genesis, chapters 18 and 19, we read of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah because of Almighty God’s hatred of homosexuality. Romans, chapter one, also makes God’s position on the so-called “gay” movement very clear. I am sorry to say that Barack Obama has been very vocal about favoring the latter day Sodomites. Only a few months ago, Obama refused to go or send a representative to Capitol Hill for a National Day of Prayer. On June 22nd, however, Obama invited the leaders of the “Gay” activist organizations to the East Room of the White House to commemorate the Stonewall Riots of June 28th, 1969. The Stonewall Riots were named for the burning of a gay bar, the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, New York City. This infamous gay bar became the symbol of the gay rights’ movement in America, and our President honored the Sodomites profusely. (9) It was forty years after Stonewall, which is one full generation according to Scripture. Will judgment from the Almighty soon follow? We also know that on June 18th, 2009, Obama extended full Federal benefits to the gay partners of Federal employees in an elaborate signing event. (10) Similar signings took place at state levels as well, such as the one in the state of Washington by Governor Chris Gregoire on May 19th, 2009. (11)
It seems that the entire nation is reaching new depths of corruption, and this is a sure sign of the time of our Lord’s return! We have now learned that the prestigious Harvard University has dropped its straitlaced image and endowed America’s first named professorship of sexuality. This academic chair and department majors in gay, bisexual, and transgender studies! (12) In England, Liverpool Hope University now offers a full doctoral program in the study of the infamous rock group, the Beatles. (13) Where does it all end?
When the government began to launch some of its most recent projects, it needed a distraction to occupy the minds of the American people. Suddenly celebrities began to die! Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, and numerous others all died within a week or so. America became transfixed and gave their attention to almost nothing else. Michael Jackson received the most attention as tens of thousands of people tried to get tickets to his memorial service at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. (14) Here let it be noted that one of the roles played by Michael Jackson that is seldom remembered was the part he played in the 1978 musical remake of the Wizard of Oz. It featured an entirely African-American cast and was a big hit. We know the original Wizard of Oz was done by satanic design, and it was a picture of America being taken over. It featured a scarecrow that had no brain, a tin man that had no heart, and a lion that had no courage. Through the clandestine activities of the government behind the curtain, the wizard of the ounce (oz), the gold and silver standards were replaced with unbacked paper currency. The people of the United States were so demoralized that Americans became a people that have no brain, no heart, and no courage. My reason for mentioning all of this is because the part played by Michael Jackson in the Wiz was the scarecrow, which had no brain. Now Michael Jackson is dead and buried, and they buried him without his brain, which was held back for research. (15)
A Nation with Empty Pockets!
Who picked the pockets of this once great nation of the United States of America? Is our nation being brought low by a systematic planned program? Why is it that during the forty-eight days prior to June 16th, 2009, oil prices were continually dropping and gas prices were continually going up? (16) Why have American households lost $1.33 trillion in the first quarter of 2009? (17) It is so bad that even the Internal Revenue Service is complaining that the taxes collected this year are down $138 billion, or 34% less, compared to last year. (18) On May 13th, the Associated Press reported that Social Security and Medicare funds are dwindling fast. Medicare is now paying out more than is being taken in, and Social Security is running out of money well ahead of schedule. (19) The average credit score for Americans has dropped between 6 and 11 points and now averages 651. (20) We know that our economy is being sabotaged. We also know that when Obama continues to increase the supply of money by trillions of dollars, it causes all existing money to be worth less and less. Inflation begins to grip the nation. This is true because the existing goods and services must absorb all of the new money, and prices begin to spiral upward. The big question now is when will the Federal Government declare a “bank holiday” and close all the banks for reorganization as Franklin Roosevelt did in 1932? When this happens, no one will have access to their money until the devaluation is complete. How will the people react in such a society as we now have? It is no doubt time to pray fervently! The Almighty does give us signs that He is in charge at all times. On the 13th day of July, Obama was giving a speech on urban and metropolitan policy in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. When he said the words, “To pull our economy back from the brink….,” the glass teleprompter went crashing to the floor, breaking into small pieces, and leaving shards of shattered glass at the President’s feet. (21) This was another sign from above!
Emergence of a Strange New Religion!
Where is true Christianity today? Most people look in all the wrong places. Mainstream “Christianity” has been seized upon by demonic forces, and this fact is self-evident when we look at what they are saying and doing. During the Pope’s recent trip to the State of Israel, the Pontiff made a speech that was shocking in many ways. The photograph of the Pope making this speech revealed the clear image of a shadowy figure of a man behind a thin curtain. The man appeared to be about ten feet tall and stood directly behind the Pope. This was no ordinary man! Occultists who have actually seen Satan all report that he appears to be about ten feet tall and a dark shadowy figure. Obviously, strange and clandestine forces are at work in this ancient land. The Pope, who also prayed at the Wailing Wall, also made an amazing declaration. He clearly announced that the Vatican will immediately stop preaching to Jews and make no effort to convert them. (22)
We have now learned that the largest “fundamentalist” denomination in America is about to honor and endorse Barack Obama. President Obama is pro gay, pro abortion, and antichrist in his policies in so many ways. With full knowledge of this, Southern Baptist President Johnny Hunt has proposed a resolution to honor and formally endorse Barack Obama! (23)
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association recently sent me a large poster and invitation that is apparently being sent to all churches. The event is a rock music concert to be held along the Mississippi River in various places in August 2009 called Rock the River Tour. This series of events include some of the vilest and most evil looking performers I have ever seen, such as Superchick, Red, Flyleaf, and others. The poster also features a Volkswagen van, such as symbolizes the Grateful Dead, with a red guitar dripping with blood on the front! (24)
The influence that witchcraft has had on churches in America and England can be clearly seen by any discerning Christian. But in these last days, the Wiccans, Druids, and other types of witches are flaunting their craft, and with great audacity, they are parading it everywhere. On June 21st, 2009, many thousands of Druid witches gathered at Stonehenge on the sabat of Midsummer. (25) It is all happening just as it did many centuries ago, and this revival of witchcraft indicates that the final Antichrist is about to rise up! This occult evil is so widespread that the Guardian Newspaper of London featured the following headline on June 22nd, 2009: “Everyone’s a Pagan Now.” The article went on to state that there are more than 250,000 initiated and practicing witches in Britain alone. (26) Here let it be noted that witchcraft is no joke, and neither is it a light matter, and this includes the Harry Potter materials. Almighty God makes this very clear in Deuteronomy 18:10-12 which reads as follows: “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.”
It should be quite obvious that Satan, who is attempting to enslave all of mankind, would not overlook the direct control over the human body as well as the complete brainwashing of the mind. It was Johann Wolfgang Goethe who said, “None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.” It is somewhat amazing to me that so many people think that Barack Obama really cares for them and that is what is prompting his new health care plan. Under the Obama plan, everyone would be required to carry health insurance. Poor and middle class people would receive some subsidies, and those who refuse to sign up will face fines of more than $1,000. This money would be collected through the income tax system, the IRS. These penalties are called “shared responsibility payments.” The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the fines would bring in $36 billion over a ten year period, which would help pay for the program. Thus, the Federal Government is depending on the noncompliance of the people to raise the money to make their program work. (27) This is socialism at work! In addition to that, the program also calls for mandatory control of every person’s detailed medical records by the Federal Government in a single massive database. There will be no chance to opt out. (28)
Every project of the Federal Government has an occult base to it. Obama’s health care plan is no exception. The official symbol of the health plan, taken directly from the Obama website, is a dead give-a-way. It is comprised of the Obama symbol, which is the oval with three red stripes and three white stripes with a bright orb rising from the six stripes. In front of the oval is a caduceus, consisting of two serpents intertwined around the winged scepter. A crescent moon with three stars rises above four houses inside an illuminated pyramid. (29) As a former occultist, this symbolism is no mystery to me. This symbol depicts a nationwide spell of mind and body control. The dark forces of antichrist are rising quickly!
We must also note that three things are happening with precise Illuminati timing. It is not coincidental that Obama’s nationwide health plan, the emergence of the H1N1 (swine flu), and the new vaccine are all happening at the same time. On June 12th, 2009, United Nations’ health officials declared that the swine flu is at the pandemic stage! (30) This means that no laboratory can be sued because of injuries or death caused by the vaccine. According to the Associated Press, an unprecedented six-hundred-million doses of vaccine are currently being prepared. (31) Some reports have indicated that it will take three injections for a person to be immunized. According to Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, school children will be the first to be vaccinated. The Federal Government has been putting schools on notice that they may be turned into shot clinics, not only for students, but for all people of every age. Sebelius said, “The target may be school-age children as a first priority.” (32) Take careful note of that word target.
Where did this mysterious flu come from? We know the so-called “swine flu” cannot be transferred from swine to humans, but German researchers have now discovered that the real danger is that the virus can be transferred from humans to swine. From that point, the researchers stated that the virus strains would be mixed up even further with unpredictable results. (33) I have no doubt that the Obama Administration will do everything it can to force every American to take the shot. They need to be given a firm no!
On June 17th, 2009, National Public Television let the cat out of the bag with a scientific documentary program on NOVA called “The Deadliest Virus.” The topic of the program was the 1918 influenza epidemic that killed millions worldwide. On the program it was stated that the samples of this virus are kept in a facility that is so restricted that only a handful of scientists are allowed to study it. The producer of the program made the mistake of showing one of the sample tubes of the 91-year-old 1918 virus, and it was clearly labeled H1N1. (34) I have no doubt that this H1N1 swine flu virus is nothing new, and it is designed for population reduction and control. Who could be as dirty as Satan’s chosen people who now fill the key leadership positions? I must also mention that Reuters News Service published a story on the 13th day of July 2009 with the following headline: “New Flu Resembles Feared 1918 Virus.” (35) The story told how this virus goes deep into the lungs and causes pneumonia. We have now learned that the Food and Drug Administration has been sending out warning letters to providers of natural supplements, vitamins, and foods that there is to be no mention of any of their products as beneficial in preventing or treating the H1N1 virus. The penalties include stiff fines and possible criminal prosecution. (36)
Other Signs of the End!
The 24th chapter of Matthew tells us to watch for many signs that would come at the time of the end of the world. We are to watch for famine, pestilences, earthquakes, and so on. Recent reports indicate that one billion people now suffer from worldwide hunger. (37) In France, officials recently discovered an estimated six billion mosquito larvae for the large Asian tiger mosquito, which were being sprayed by helicopters to keep them from spreading to Britain. (38) On June 16th, 2009, an unusual storm moved into Beijing, China, and no one had ever seen anything like it. It was 11:30 A.M. and was as pitch black as the darkest night. The storm collapsed 9,700 houses. (39) On June 20th, 2009, in South Jordan, Utah, a new Mormon Temple was struck by lightning. The lightning struck a gold statue of the “Angel Moroni” and turned the angel black. (40) Nine days later, thick swarms of locusts plagued Tooele, Utah, with a pestilence of Biblical proportions. (41) On July 9th, 2009, the Associated Press reported that “mysterious tremors have been detected on the San Andreas Fault.” Scientists stated that the number of tremors doubled after the 2003 earthquake and increased six-fold after 2004. (42) There have been 272 earthquakes worldwide within the past 30 days with a magnitude of 4 or greater. This includes the magnitude 7.8 quake that shook the New Zealand area on July 15th, 2009. (43)
One of the strangest stories about the end time was released on June 23rd, 2009, by the Associated Press. It tells of the Dead Sea area and how, without warning, the ground just opens up and swallows people. (44) This is the area where the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah once stood. Large sections of the area are now being fenced off, and warning signs are being posted. Truly, there are many signs of the coming of the Lord. I pray that we will all be ready to meet Him as our Saviour and King. Grace and peace be multiplied unto you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thanks to all of you who support this end time prophetic ministry. Remember, your prayer requests are always welcomed and will receive individual attention.
