Belly up: 10 states face imminent bankruptcy
Personal insolvency also surges as tax revenues decline

Editor's Note: The following report is excerpted from Jerome Corsi's Red Alert, the premium online newsletter published by the current No. 1 best-selling author, WND staff writer and columnist. Red Alert subscriptions are $99 a year or $9.95 per month for credit card users. Annual subscribers will receive a free autographed copy of "The Late Great USA," a book about the careful deceptions of a powerful elite who want to undermine our nation's sovereignty.

Ten states are facing imminent bankruptcy, confounding any possibility of economic recovery as tax revenues continue to decline and unemployment increases nationwide, Jerome Corsi's Red Alert reports.

Those states in fiscal peril include California, Arizona, Rhode Island, Michigan, Oregon, Nevada, Florida, New Jersey, Illinois and Wisconsin.

The surge in looming bankruptcies among state governments is accompanied by a surge in the number of Americans filing for personal bankruptcy – further indicators the economy has a long way to go before an economic recovery is a reality in Middle America, Corsi explained.

The 10 states, accounting for approximately one-third of the U.S. population, face declines in tax revenue as unemployment now officially tops 10 percent and budget gaps that mean higher taxes loom in the future. State government officials have been laid off, key social services including prisons and police are strained and schools have been closed.

Corsi wrote that most states, unlike the federal government, are constrained by state laws to balance their budgets, meaning revenue shortfalls must result in reductions in state government-financed programs.

At the same time, the American Bankruptcy Institute reported personal bankruptcies surged 9 percent in October, with a 7 percent jump in business bankruptcies. Total bankruptcies in 2009 are expected to top 1.4 million, an increase of 30 percent from last year and the highest level since 2005, according to CNN Money.

The National Governors Association has reported state revenues across the nation were down 11.7 and 16.6 percent in the first two quarters of 2009, respectively.

The study further observed that state revenues will not return to 2008 levels in real dollar terms until fiscal year 2014, under the most favorable assumptions that the economy has already begun a slow and largely jobless recovery.

Red Alert reports that among the most severe problems facing the states is the outstanding liability of about $2.73 trillion in employee retirement, health and other benefits coming due over the next several decades, of which more than $271 billion is unfunded.

The National Governors Association presented the reality that "it will take states nearly a decade to fully emerge from the current recession."

"The truth is that the recovery period could be even longer if the bankruptcy and unemployment picture does not improve," Corsi wrote.

Just last week, Red Alert reported that the real unemployment number, including those who have dropped out of the labor force because they have become discouraged after looking for a job for a year or longer, was 22.1 percent for October 2009, not the 10.2 percent reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Budget crises mean cuts in welfare, benefits to illegals

As Red Alert has reported, Tom Blumer at NewsBusters has produced statistics that show California is in a welfare crisis, especially as unemployment in May rose to 11.5 percent.

Blumer produced charts to demonstrate that California has "chronically failed to do anything meaningful about its welfare population since 2002."

As of Sept. 30, 2008, California with 12 percent of the nation's population had a disproportionate 32 percent of the nation's welfare recipients, up from 22 percent only six years earlier.

The incidence of California residents on welfare is almost three and a half times that of the rest of the country, Corsi noted.

Blumer has argued that if California mirrored the rest of the country, 869,000 fewer of its residents would be on welfare, with the result that the nation's welfare caseload would be almost 23 percent lower.

Corsi surmised that California may have to consider ending state welfare altogether, stopping CalWORKs, the California state version of comprehensive welfare reform under the 1996 Temporary Assistance for Needy Families law.

"Perhaps not surprisingly, among all the proposals to balance California's budget, the politically correct state has yet to consider cutting social welfare benefits for illegal immigrants, including education of children in Spanish in the public schools or restricting access to hospital emergency rooms for nonemergency primary health-care services," he wrote. "Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is likely to sell high-profile state property such as the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and San Quentin prison before tackling the politically charged issue of controlling the flood of illegal immigrants that continue to head north into California from Mexico."

WND columnist Ben Shapiro has estimated that education and health costs for illegal immigrants compose between 16.4 and 20.5 percent of California's budget deficit.

With President Obama suggesting in Tuesday's press conference that the time for the second $787 billion economic package was "not yet," Corsi said he doubts the White House can gain the political strength to add a California bailout to the list of bank bailouts, the AIG bailout and the GM/Chrysler bailouts.

Still, as Red Alert has previously reported, the California budget crisis is merely the most severe of what are likely to be widespread state budget crises in the coming months, with 47 states likely to face serious budget shortfalls before the end of 2010.

Red Alert continues to predict that as the state budget crisis deepens, the Obama administration will propose federal guarantees on state loans, even though the move would add trillions to the contingent liabilities of the United States.

Red Alert's author, whose books "The Obama Nation" and "Unfit for Command" have topped the New York Times best-sellers list, received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in political science in 1972. For nearly 25 years, beginning in 1981, he worked with banks throughout the U.S. and around the world to develop financial services marketing companies to assist banks in establishing broker/dealers and insurance subsidiaries to provide financial planning products and services to their retail customers. In this career, Corsi developed three different third-party financial services marketing firms that reached gross sales levels of $1 billion in annuities and equal volume in mutual funds. In 1999, he began developing Internet-based financial marketing firms, also adapted to work in conjunction with banks.

In his 25-year financial services career, Corsi has been a noted financial services speaker and writer, publishing three books and numerous articles in professional financial services journals and magazines.

The Indifferent Church

By Dene McGriff


Today's western church ignores prophecy and believes false doctrine at its own peril. Deception lurks at the door. Lukewarm bottoms make for comfy pews. Indifference leads to apostasy and the tar baby of the world system. The church is an anemic, ineffective, but extravagant entertainment center that panders to the needs of its members and dares not to tell them the uncomfortable , inconvenient truth.
Are these the last days? Or will life just march alongas it always has? Should we be concerned at all? Look at the signs of the times. After nearly two thousand years, the Jews are back in the Promised Land and Israel is a cup of trembling to the nations. The United Nations seems to think Israel is the greatest terrorist state on the face of the earth! Recently, the UN Human Rights Council condemned Israel. Wars, famine, earthquakes, freaky weather, nation rising against nation, shortages of food, potable water and oil continue to grow along with a burgeoning world population of 7 billion—but who’s listening to the hoof beats of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse? What will the future be for the billions of new people throughout Asia (China and India), Africa and the Middle East? Are there enough resources in the world left for them?

And what about the church? The church is falling away from the faith, embracing the oneness of humanity, trying to be relevant to a post-Christian world. But do you hear a prophetic message that time is short from the pulpit of churches today? No, the church seeks to expand membership with entertainment and programs, meeting the felt needs of the people, being “seeker friendly,” open and accepting of others and other faiths, opening their souls to contemplative prayer and meditation, discovering the oneness with all mankind, while embracing the “National Religion.” A church that embraces the world and ignores prophecy; a church that ignores one third of the entire Bible; a church that is deaf to God’s message in the last days, while embracing the nonsensical tenets of Preterism where everything-in-prophecy-has-been-fulfilled eschatology; a church that refuses to be the watchman on the wall shouting out the warning – is the church that is going to be absorbed by the world, lose its life and anointing and eventually become fused with the Beast State.

The church that has no prophetic understanding, is a church open to deception. Recent research shows that the majority of the church no longer believes that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. Christians are not sure the Bible is completely accurate and inspired. They believe it probably shares truth with other “sacred books” on an equal basis. Few “Christians” believe the traditional teachings of the faith. They are more likely to pick and choose what they want to believe. The problem in the last days is not some worldwide new age false religion, but a fallen, compromised form of Christianity. I can’t believe the silly things I hear about the Antichrist introducing a new world religion. No, the religion of the Antichrist will be Christian in form and name and the counterfeit will be so good most Christians will be deceived.

Granted, the new Christianity will be more universal and accepting of all religions but this trend has been accelerating for the past 50 years. It is nothing new. The New Age movement has been working its way into the church for years – from the likes of Norman Vincent Peal to Robert Schuller to Rick Warren known as “America’s pastor” and spokesman for the church today. Whether you follow the New Age, or the teachings of the “Word Faith” movement the insidious result is the deification of man. We are gods. God is in us and in everything. That is the ultimate error which will be reaffirmed by the Antichrist as he calls down the dark forces to take up habitation in the human spirit, the ultimate desecration of the real temple of God, the abomination of desolations (Please read Doug’s article: Israel’s Temple Sacrifice and the Abomination of Desolation).

The church today has no power because it pays lip service to the Word of God and has virtually no prophetic vision. The modern view of prophecy takes many forms in the church today. It could be Rick Warren saying that “God says that prophecy is none of our business.” (as quoted on page 285 of “The Purpose Driven Life”), to the “Preterist” position that all prophecy was fulfilled by 70AD, to the Dominionists to the pre-tribulation rapture. Virtually all of these positions negate, minimize or make irrelevant the importance of prophecy to the average Christian. The “none of our business” people would have the church evangelizing and being relevant to today’s culture. The Preterist and Dominionists would have the church being active taking control of society. The pre-tribbers mean well and insist that Jesus will return soon but first the true believers will be caught up to heaven before the tribulation—leaving the Jews to fend for themselves and the so-called “tribulation saints” neither in the Church and or in Christ--somehow saved without the Holy Spirit’s regeneration! None of these positions give the Christian any sense of urgency, calling or purpose when it comes to the end times. I have friends who say it may be several hundred years before the Lord returns. They are into perfecting the bride first, getting her good and ready before the bridegroom can return; helping believers manage their marriages, finances, education, children and being good patriotic folk who care for their country and ready to “let freedom ring!”

The wealthy church in Laodicea thinks she doesn’t need anything and doesn’t realize she is miserable, poor, naked, and blind! The American church is rich and in need of nothing, thinking it is making an impact on the community, reaching out with endless programs to pull together marriages, teens, golfers, the addicted and lonely. It is full of purpose and programs to patch up the lost and hurting. No matter how much they preach people are abandoning the Church in droves! The contrast is amazing—we’ve got our tennis courts next to the slums and think nothing of it!

The majority of the congregation’s commitment is limited to a couple of meetings a week, but the main focus is to make a living and keep hearth and home together. The goal is to be a good Christian, raise the kids right, and maybe do a mission trip or feed the homeless. We may be concerned about the direction the country is taking, the trends in the schools and society, and may be stirred to action now and then. The pastor is careful not to scare the seekers away so he stays positive. He doesn’t want to frighten the congregation so he avoids controversial and unimportant issues—even abortion and gay marriage—just stay away from any controversy: Can’t we all just get along? In most evangelical churches, the people are reassured that their blessed hope is the rapture so even though things may be getting bad, they won’t have to suffer, God forbid. They will be okay, for surely God wouldn’t let His children suffer; I mean, after all: “Go buy gold tried in the fire!” Never happen – God is too merciful and will “keep us from the hour of trial which is to try the whole earth” – I mean, who would or could think that passage in the Revelation means to keep you in the very midst of the Lion’s Den or in the midst of Egypt’s plagues?

Let’s just try and imagine that these really are the “last days” and these are the “beginning of sorrows” as described in Matthew 24:6-8: “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all[a]these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.” And soon things begin to get even worse. “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. (Matthew 24:9-10) If things start to get really bad, what will the average Christian think? This can’t really be happening to me. Why am I still here? What did I do to deserve this? We’re supposed to go be with the Lord!

This passage begins with, “Take heed that no one deceives you.” (Verse 5) So when these things begin to happen and Christians are deceived – not expecting it to happen, not recognize it when it does, what does this amount to? Blindness! Deception. The church does not comprehend the prophetic Scriptures. The laity have neither read nor understood them. The clergy have neither read nor grasped them, nor explained their significance to the “laity.” The average Christian is caught up in the good things of life, including the activities and programs of the church but there is a storm approaching and no one seems to care. No one is sounding the warning. Prophecy is considered an arcane and academic study, controversial, complicated and subject to interpretation.

Where is the “Hope of His Coming?”

We discussed these issues in the last article on the “Scoffing Church.” We need to look at prophecy seriously. Why? If the Bible is true (and I believe it is); if the Bible is God’s message to man; if the Bible reveals a plan of redemption to restore man to fellowship with his Maker; if the Bible reveals God’s plan and purpose for man and His creation; if the Bible reveals the titanic struggle between Himself and the great Deceiver; if the Bible tells us about not only the beginning and middle, but the end as well, it would seem to me to be a good idea to pay attention. In Revelation 2 and 3 in the letters to each of the seven churches, it says “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” If as it is estimated that about a third of the Bible is end time prophecy, dare we ignore it? Didn’t God have a reason for telling us what will happen?

Here is the problem. The church has been waiting 2,000 years for His coming and some of the people who got excited when the Jews returned to the land, feel let down because Jesus hasn’t returned. The study of prophecy doesn’t mean much in the everyday life of today’s Christians. It is a debating point for the professionals but of little practical good for the believer. No wonder the study of prophecy slipped off into obscurity. Those few pastors and teachers who were excited about prophecy and talked about it began to look foolish to their congregations. It became the death knell for the pastor who could be charged with fear mongering, being irrelevant or controversial.

Well meaning Christians down through the centuries tried their best to make sense out of prophecy, they couldn’t possibly understand it given their time and place in history. Can you imagine what it was like to try and interpret end times prophecy two hundred years ago? They came up with all kinds of wrong ideas if for no other reason than it was the wrong place and time.

Prophecy is discredited, dismissed and ignored by Christians of all stripes. Today, as we mentioned, some believe prophecy has all been fulfilled. Others believe the church has to make it happen while others believe the church has to leave. We have dealt with all of these subjects in great detail in other places on this website. The net effect of all of these positions is to minimize the relevance to the average Christian. It creates such a mental conundrum so most of us just give up and hope it will all pan out in the end.

I would submit that the problem with the church today is that it is caught up in the world and blind because it ignores the prophetic Word. It believes false and misleading teachings and has completely failed to take a fresh look at Scripture. And since so many Bible Schools and Seminaries today tend to neutralize error and vindicate intellectual understanding of “all things considered” (i.e., let’s don’t get all excited about our differences—in other words LUKEWARM!) It is the responsibility of each individual to go to the Lord and ask for enlightenment and fresh revelation. But who are we to understand these things? We have become so dependent and trusting of the clergy that we don’t dare question them. Have we spent years studying these issues like they have?

The Age of Deception

Down through the ages Christians have overcome the world, the flesh and the devil by realizing that “this world is not my home. I’m just passing through…” as the old song goes. Life was pretty simple in earlier days. You get up with the sunrise, work hard all day and go to bed when it gets dark. Today life moves at the speed of light. We have texting, twitter, face book, wii, DVRs, cell phones, G3 and G4 compatible devices that allow us to access the internet from anywhere with our computer, blackberry, iPod or cell phone, hundreds of TV channels and tens of millions of websites. We can talk to or text anyone in the world any time we like. We can access almost any movie from “on demand” or choose from several hundred channels, not to mention XM radio or carry a day’s worth of music on an MP3 player the size of the thumb, or view news, finance, weather or travel channels 24 hours a day. It is more difficult to live with a sense of the presence of the Lord, a sense of our eternal purpose and in a community of believers than ever before.

But what does this have to do with indifference in the church? We are so media driven, we demand media filled churches that tantalize every sense, entertain and wow us. Our attention span lasts about 30 seconds. Christian radio and television are filled with programs such as “Focus on the Family,” Minirth Meier Clinic, Family Life Today, TBN, PTL – self help, word faith, healing and miracles. The Christian bookstores are full of the same kind of books – how to fix your relationships, fight addictions, manage your money, or inspirational quasi-new age/Christian books such as “The Shack” and the “Prayer of Jabez”, etc. The tiny section on prophecy comes from establishment authors who spout the old line of the pre-tribulation rapture, the Antichrist comes from Europe, America must be destroyed or it already happened – 99 percent of it wrong or misleading.

We don’t get the truth from our churches, from the press, from Wall Street or our political leaders. Not to be conspiratorial, but it seems that they are all on the same page and no one is telling us the truth. Whose fault is it that we have been led so far astray? Why can’t we “hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches?” Why can’t we hear that still small voice? Why do we disregard the prophetic Scriptures? Why are we so influenced by our Christian “leaders” and their teachings? We are listening to man! Only the Holy Spirit can reveal these things to us. Understanding doesn’t come from man. Revelation and enlightenment, comes from reading His Word and asking Him to open your heart and mind. It comes from putting aside your preconceived ideas and even the things you have been taught. You are responsible. You need to hear His voice – not all of the conflicting voices bombarding you.

We are living in an age of deception, so the true church, those who believe and have received the Lord Jesus into their spirit and have been born anew, will be lulled into complacency. So many glibly say, “Oh I love the Lord and He will take care of me no matter what happens.” Please read Matthew 10:16-22, People who call themselves Christians will be deceived and deliver up their brothers and sisters thinking they are doing God a favor. There will be those who go along with the crowd and those who stand for His testimony, even unto death. It won’t be easy. If we are His sheep, we will recognize the voice of the Shepherd and follow Him. If we listen to the message from the apostate, lukewarm, Laodicean Church, we will be among the deceived.

The Church Doesn’t Get It!

I’ve been reading a couple of books recently. One is entitled The Return of the King, a Prophetic Time-line of End Times Events by Jeff Kluttz. It has some good points and clearly sees the beginning of the Seventieth Week of Daniel and the beginning of the Tribulation with the Treaty of Death and Hell of Daniel 9:27 but that’s about it. He believes the Church raptures, since God can’t allow it to suffer God’s wrath. He doesn’t know who the two witnesses of Revelation 11 are, but speculates they could be Moses and Elijah. He surmises that prophetic Babylon is Babylon (in Iraq) and that the Antichrist sets up his HQ there. He proceeds to describe the one world religion this person creates and tries desperately to make Revelation 17 and 18 fit Iraq. I could have picked any book by Hal Lindsey, Dave Wilkerson, Tim LaHaye, David Jeremiah, David Reagan (just check out the scores of “green apples” on “Who’s Who in Bible Prophecy”) or any other modern day Christian writer. They all teach basically the same thing:

· The Church will be raptured and “tribulation saints” will be raised up to evangelize during the Tribulation.

· The Antichrist will arise from Europe (possibly Rome) or even Iraq where he will rule in great power from the rebuilt city of Babylon.

· America will be destroyed by enemies from the outside (e.g. Russia) or will be devastated by the disappearance of so many millions of Christians leaving business and government in chaos – “caught up” in the rapture!

· All the nations of the world will unite around the one world religion of the Antichrist.

· The two witnesses are two people – like really powerful people with whom the Beast makes WAR against!

1. The whole idea of the rapture as a secret coming of the Lord for the Church is mainly based on the idea that the church cannot suffer the wrath of God. Assuming they are correct, they misunderstand the difference between tribulation and wrath. Please look at a Chapter I wrote on The Chronology of the Book of Revelation. You will note that the first six seals of Revelation 6 primarily reflect the rampages of the Antichrist throughout the earth. These are not God’s judgments. The six trumpets of Revelation 8 and 9 are demonic events that occur as the rebellious angels are cast from heaven to earth and the resulting damage caused by them. You will notice that the saints are sealed by God and protected (Revelation 9:4) so the first six trumpets are not God’s judgment. The seventh trumpet sounds in Revelation 11:11-17 and we see the rapture of the saints and the return of the Lord (this corresponds with many other verses such as Matthew 24:29-31). After the seventh trumpet the bowls of wrath are poured out in Revelation 16. The pre-trib people are right in one sense. The saints do not suffer the wrath of God and are taken up just before – they’re just seven years off! This is all very straightforward. I don’t understand why Christians can’t see it. The idea that “tribulation saints” will carry the day is insulting to the church; as if the Church is so impotent that her finest hour escapes her (no pun intended).

2. Most Christian scholars agree that the Antichrist is a ruler of a world power. Doug Krieger deals with just about every permutation imagined in his 28 chapter book titled “Reflections on the Desolator” (which now includes two additional chapters on the “Assyrian Antichrist”) This is probably one of the most controversial and studied subjects in the Bible. Everyone wants to know who the Antichrist is. So, who is he? Simply put: he is the King of Babylon, the leader of the most powerful nation in the world. So let’s get real. That couldn’t be Iraq. There is no way Iraq can be apostate Christian (it is Muslim), Israel’s best friend, the consumer nation of the world (Revelation 17) and a great military power. Listen, you can call Moslem’s “apostates” all day – and they can call Christians apostates all day. But the truth of the matter is that the New Testament declares APOSTASY to be none other than a “falling away from the faith” – and it isn’t talking about the Moslem faith but the Christian faith! There is another prophetic nation in the last days referred to as “Babylon.” The European Union is not united in any sense (in fact they boast in their “cultural diversity” – whereas Americans are the biggest mixing bowl on the planet). The EU is nothing more than a very loose and poorly organized consortium of countries. What nation could be Babylon the Great of the Last Days? Whatever it is, the Antichrist is the head of it and it is the richest, most powerful apostate nation on the earth and friend of Israel! Any ideas?

3. Before we go looking for some last days place referred to prophetically as “Babylon,” let’s just say that Christian scholars have written off America for several reasons. First, it isn’t mentioned specifically in the Bible (obviously – but neither is Italy as Italy). Second, Christians, at least American Christians, are convinced that America is a “Christian” nation that has been mightily used by God. So, we are the good guys. Third, most are looking to Europe – the so-called Revived Roman Empire. The most likely suspects are the roughly ten nations of the WEU – the Western European Union (since that is what is what they say is mentioned in prophecy) that makes up Western Europe today representing what was the Roman Empire. Again, there are many theories which Doug Krieger deals with exhaustively (Please see The United States of Europe is a Joke.)

Please excuse me while I digress a moment. I mentioned above that I was reading a couple of books. The other is a series written for children by Rick Riordan which I am previewing for my wife who is a school teacher. Anyway, the premise is that all of the Greek gods are alive and well but Mount Olympus moves as western civilization’s focus of power migrates. So, according to the story, it moved to Rome, to London and now is in New York City. Of course, Hades is, guess where? Hollywood of course! The interesting thing is that even a children’s book writer understands that the Greco-Roman world still lives on but the seat of power has moved over the years. God doesn’t look at geographic boundaries but peoples and we Americans are European – the little horn that dominates the other ten, if you would “the people of the prince who is to come.” This is not rocket science but most of the fancy, well educated so-called Biblical scholars have completely missed it!

Rather than repeat myself, I have written a whole book titled In Search of Mystery Babylon that deals with this subject in great detail. Suffice it to say that there is only one powerful “Christian” nation, the only superpower, the largest military, largest economy, largest consumer nation and only friend of Israel (and likely to make a treaty with her) in the world.

4. I don’t know why this is, but most Christian writers think that the Antichrist invents some new “one world” religion, rather than being the head of “Christian-apostate Beast Nation.” They fail to grasp the fact that the Antichrist is such a classic fake; such a good substitute that even Christians will be fooled by him. You don’t have to go far in Christian circles today to find many examples of apostate Christianity parading around as if it were the real thing. First there was Constance Cumbey writing Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow. Then there was David Hunt and TA McMahon. Their 1985 book “The Seduction of Christianity” was a watershed work and Hunt’s 1998 book “Occult Invasion” is a brilliant treatise on the occult in the church. The work has continued with Lighthouse Trails Research which boldly and bravely continues the work of exposing the growing apostasy which has infected most of the churches as well as the Bible Schools and Seminaries of the land. There are others bravely willing to expose the growing Apostasy like Apostasy Watch, Jackie Alnor (Apostasy Alert); Eastern Regional Watch and others “holding forth the Word of Life!”

Dear readers, the problem does not come from some threat without, but from the growing rot within the church. The seat of power of the future world leader known as the Antichrist doesn’t come from Rome, Iraq or Russia but from the most powerful nation on earth. The source of deception and persecution does not come from without – from some new world religion, but from apostate (fallen) Christianity. We’re looking for false religion in all the wrong places! It is right in front of our noses. It’s here, right in our own backyard! Look at the vibrant churches in China, Mongolia, India’s present revival, Indonesia, Africa, Latin America and now even in the heart of Islam, Saudi Arabia – but here in America we are neither cold nor hot…”we have need of nothing!”

5. And what is the last thing the church doesn’t get? They don’t get the “TWO WITNESSES.” Most Christians just take what has been taught (in this case for the past 200 years) and keep putting forth the same old doctrines and teachings. Come on. It isn’t that hard. Why do most insist that they are two super heroes (such as Moses and Elijah)? As we point out in numerous articles on the site the two witnesses are God’s people on the earth – Jews and Christians, his physical people and his spiritual people. The two witnesses are the two olive trees and the two lampstands. What is Israel called in Romans 11? An olive tree! And what is the church called in Revelation 2 and 3? Lampstands! And before whom do these Two Witnesses testify? Israel is a witness to God’s promises and faithfulness to His people – a “testimony” to Gentile World Powers. After two millennia, the Jews have not only maintained their identity, but have returned to the Land God originally gave to Abraham 4,000 years ago; now, all the nations of the earth know that the God of Israel lives! The Church, the people redeemed by Jesus’ blood and saved by his life giving Spirit, are witnesses to His love and mercy, His miraculous work in people who love Him above all else – these testify to the “principalities and powers in high places” – no, they do not “wrestle against flesh and blood!” Please note that there are also two groups of 144,000 in Revelation 7 and 14, the first group are Jews and the second Christians. See Krieger’s “Visions of Zechariah” and many other articles on our website going into great detail on this and other prophetic subjects.

If God is going to judge the earth, He can only do that with the testimony of two witnesses – his corporate peoples. Our job is not to escape or hide, but to be a testimony as God’s people on the earth.


If we are living in the last days, then prophecy is written for our generation. This is God reaching down through time and space to specifically talk to us, telling us what will happen and what to do to get ready. The main characteristic of the last days is deception. The church will fall away and turn on real Christians. The church that does not have a prophetic revelation is bound to be deceived. Ninety nine percent are already deceived. What is a Christian without vision to do? Bake brownies for church snacks? Listen to more sermons? Teach Sunday school? Take the kids to soccer and hold the family together? Listen to more sermons? Navigate investments so you don’t lose your retirement? Listen to more sermons? Pay off bills? Mow the lawn? Bake casseroles? Listen to more sermons? Go to church? Go to home meetings? Listen to more sermons? As a brother once said: Ad Nausea, Ad Infinitum!

Your goal may be to escape (by the rapture) or maybe you want to be more culturally relevant so you have become “purpose driven,” contemplative or emergent in your approach. But how many are really living in His presence and listening to what He is saying? What I say is not important. It is what the Holy Spirit wants to say to you that matters. You need to learn to listen to His still small voice. You need to approach the Bible from a fresh and unbiased perspective, free of all the preconceptions and mistaken teachings you hold so dear. If you have read much of my work you know I am not being critical of the many men of God that have gone before. The point is, they were trying their best to understand prophecy but they didn’t have a “need to know” and interpreted Scripture in the context of their time and place in history and came to many wrong conclusions.

Today’s Christians ignore the 800 pound gorilla in the room – the United States – and relegate it to the trash bin of history, not realizing that it is the little horn of Daniel that is dominating the other ten nations (Europe) or ten federated powers on the globe. Only the combination of millions of people from all over the world immigrating to America, along with the rich national resources and the unusual cultural, historic and religious roots that resulted in the richest, most powerful “Christian” nation in the history of man. What folly, Barack Hussein Obama declares “We are no longer a Christ Nation!” But in point of glaring fact, nearly 76% of this country declares some form of Christian faith. No wonder things don’t add up in Washington. To think America will suddenly disappear and be replaced by a rival superpower (that has the economic, military and political power along with the Christian fervor of the religious right) is just plain stupid. Friends and readers, it took hundreds of years to build this empire and it will take many more to bring it down (not counting the Second Coming). America is not an accident of history but the climax of Western civilization. Many American Christians see it as “the city on the hill,” a cup of blessing to the nations and perhaps it was. The issue isn’t what America was, but what it has become and is becoming – that little or “younger” horn …

“I was watching; and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom.” (Daniel 7:21)

The fascinating thing is that “unbelievers” are far more interested in prophecy than so-called “Christians” who are either weary of the subject or discount it for the reasons mentioned above. End times’ prophecy energizes the gospel like no other subject because it makes sense of the chaos we see around us. (wars, economic crisis, cultural upheavals, etc.). Prophecy – what God has told us will happen in the final years – gives urgency and relevance to the good news of Jesus Christ. Yes we will see persecution, but we will also see unparalleled revival as people desperately look for answers and shelter from the storm. The greatest need for the saints today is vision, lest we fall into the great deception and perish.

As it all comes together.

If you saw a sign stating that Jews were not allowed to live in your town, or even in your country, would you find that offensive? Of course you would, and surely you can see how we feel when Obama and the UN both tell the Jews they cannot build in the city of Jerusalem or live in Judea or Samaria. To take it a step further, they cannot continue to have babies, for there can be no 'natural growth' in their present neighbourhood. I know that is putting things in very simple terms, but in fact that is exactly what is happening here in Israel. The Arabs. who call themselves "Palestinians", shelled our civilian population with missiles and rockets for 8 long years - terrorizing the entire population. Yet our weak leaders were so afraid of upsetting the USA by fighting back that they waited until there was sufficient pressure from the Israeli population to force them to retaliate. [And, even then, taking every possible precaution not to kill civilians - whilst having to fight an enemy that chooses to hide behind their women and children, hoping that some will be killed thus allowing the media to bring down the wrath of the world upon the IDF. They do this knowing that they have the full force of the UN behind them, and the endorsement of the European leaders now terrified of offending their Islamic constituents.

Consider the mental pressure we suffer here in Israel knowing that Hezbollah and Hamas are being supplied with weapons by Iran for the next war, and hearing Syria saying daily that they will take back the Golan by military force - that they have missiles capable of reaching Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem attached with Chemical and Biological warheads. Add to that the knowledge that Syria is, and has been, building secret nuclear plants with the help of Russia and North Korea.

For the past two years Russia has been moving warships to a Syrian Port just north of Israel, putting them in easy striking range of Tel-Aviv. At the same time Egypt has been completely re-armed thanks to the USA. They have F-16, F-15's and long range artillery and are daily trying to figure out ways to move them closer into the Sinai Desert nearer Israel. As you know, Israel has a peace treaty with both Jordan and Egypt. It would, however, be very foolish to think they will not join in with the rest of the Arab world when the war begins. They would be afraid not to simply because if the Arabs were victorious, they would be the next target because the whole Arab world would turn on them. Egypt has long memories of the 1967 and 1973 wars - and they seek revenge.

It's not easy to figure Turkey out. The Turkish people don't want any war, they don't want any of the Arab style of Islam, and from the many contacts I have there it is easy to determine that they are not in favour of their Government kissing up to Iran and Syria. The Turkish Military has always been secular, and has in the past held the religious politicians back from forcing fanatical Islam on the people. There are however, many indications that the Turkish military is now leaning more towards the Islamic point of view, and that is very dangerous for the Turkish people - and the world. The most troubling development lately has been the chilling of relations between Israel and Turkey. Keep in mind Ezekiel 38:5-6 where you read of Togarmah being one of the five countries that will join in the fatal fight against Israel in the 'latter days'. Togarmah was a grandson of Noah who settled in what is today called Turkey.

You must know as I do, that end time events seem to be rushing in upon us. When you consider what is happening in the US, there is only one way Obama could have been elected, and we both know that reason is to bring judgement upon the US - and it is coming quickly. Be prepared. [Gen 12:3].

There is more than enough reason for us to be concerned about our loved ones and their salvation, as well as their welfare. But the first thing you have to consider is your own relationship with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob because no one can make that decision for you. It is between you and God.

You might ask the question - as I have many times - how will this Ministry rescue Jews when along with the global insanity and wars the world will once again be blaming the Jews and another Holocaust is all but certain? The answer I always give is that my only concern is to be about the Father's business and to be obedient and to keep my eyes on the things God has appointed unto me. So my answer to you is the same; if God has called you to this Ministry that will also be your answer. God willing, we will succeed in our efforts to save Jewish lives. It is now up to us to be diligent and prepare as best we can and it will take obedience from each of us, for much is needed.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers. Pray for this Ministry and your part in it.

Shalom, Jerry Golden

America - A Nation of Willing Slaves!

"Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you. For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich…..The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?"

Jeremiah 5:25-27, 31
"And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints."

Revelation 13:8-10
"But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. 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."

John 5:42-43
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will examine a condition that has developed in our erstwhile great nation, which has brought us to a time such as never was. We are living in a time that is unique in our nation's history, and very few people are taking notice. The United States of America was founded by men and women that wanted to escape oppression and to be free, and great effort was exerted to gain that freedom. We now live in the dark reality of a strong-armed and oppressive federalism that has all of the characteristics and potential of imperial Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome. Indeed, we are on the very brink of dictatorship in a new world order, just as predicted in various places in the Scriptures. How can this be happening here? Just one generation ago, it would not have been believed to be possible. I was born in the year 1950 and have lived in Wisconsin all of my life. I can truly say that this country is no longer the one in which I was born. We are living in a time when people want to be slaves of a government that will feed them, medicate them, entertain them, indoctrinate them, confiscate the fruit of their labors, and bury them.

We know from reading the Scripture how it angered the Almighty God when Israel complained in the wilderness and wanted to go back and be slaves in Egypt. Instead of seeking the Lord's help, they were so ready to give up their freedom and liberty for the so-called social security benefits of Egypt. It is the same in America today. Where is the dignity, integrity, and honor that was once so important to free men and women?

When I think upon all this, I am reminded of the words of the illuministic futurist, Aldous Huxley, who died in 1963. Huxley was a writer for the Illuminati. He was also a mystic who advocated the use of psychedelic drugs. Huxley also wrote Brave New World and numerous essays. Consider some of his words as follows: "We are in a process of developing a whole series of techniques which will enable the controlling oligarchy to get people to actually love their servitude. A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors, and school teachers…..The greatest triumphs of propaganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by refraining from doing. Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth."

All things considered, we are most certainly moving across the threshold into a one-world dictatorship under the direction of Satan himself. Satan and all who submit to him will be quickly destroyed by our coming Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. One urgent question that demands an immediate answer is: where will you spend eternity? You now have a glorious opportunity to surrender you heart, soul, and mind to the Lord Jesus. He will accept you and save you if you do. Do it now, before your time runs out!

Dark Oppression by the Father of Lies!

It has been truly stated that a man's judgment is only as good as his information. Thus, in order to alter the judgment of people, you must control the information they receive. Here let it be noted that the White House brazenly boasted that they control the news media! This was revealed by the White House Communications Director, Anita Dunn. Dunn also was caught on tape while speaking to high school students in June, stating that one of her two favorite political philosophers was Communist Chinese leader Mao Tse tung. (1) Chairman Mao, as he was known, was a vicious Communist responsible for the mass murdering of tens of millions of people, and this is one of the heroes of Anita Dunn, handpicked by Barack Obama!

It is a sad fact that regardless of what the controlled press may say, Barack Obama is most assuredly illegally seated in the White House. He is not legal because he cannot produce a true and valid copy of his birth certificate proving that he was born in the United States. Here let it be noted that on Sunday, June 27th, 2004, the East African Standard Newspaper featured a headline as follows: "Kenyan-born Obama all set for U.S. Senate." (2) I have a copy of this page in front of me, but when attempting to find a larger copy, I was not surprised to find it had disappeared from the Internet. We must also note that during a 2004 Senate debate Alan Keyes stated that Obama was not a natural born citizen of the United States. Obama laughed and said to Keyes, "Only the President has to be a natural born citizen." (3)

Obama is not an American, much less, an American President. He is totally out of touch with America. A prime example of this is his gross insensitivity to the horrifying shooting that took place at Fort Hood in Texas on the 5th day of the 11th month of this year. It happened midway between Halloween and Armistice Day, which is celebrated at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month each year. Two days after the shooting was Friday the 13th, and the grief was heavy for the thirteen that died and for the many wounded. The occult implications of this blood sacrifice should be obvious. The witches and Freemasons that control our Government always work their plan around the celestial calendar. We must note that when Obama was informed, he was about to address a Tribal Nations Conference, and instead of stopping and addressing the tragic issue, he opened his speech to the Indians with a light, almost joking attitude, including a "shout out" to Dr. Joe (Medicine) Crow. There was no serious or somber reaction to the tragedy at all as he briefly mentioned it. (4) We must also take note that Obama played down the fact that the shooter, a psychiatrist known as Major Hasan, is an Islamic extremist who shouted, "Allahu Akbar," as he began to pump lead into the bodies of the soldiers and staff at Fort Hood. (5) The words Allahu Akbar mean "Allah is great." We are made to wonder how many other Islamic extremists are in the upper levels of our military and government as programmed units of destruction. It is a fact that Major Nidal Malik Hasan was a graduate of Virginia Tech, where 32 people were mass murdered in 2007. (6) There is a spiritual connection in all of this, and mind control is a program involving occult activity.

Everything about the Obama Administration seems wrong. Even Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is not permitted to be the Secretary of State under the United States Constitution. The organization known as Judicial Watch has filed lawsuits to challenge the appointment of Hillary Clinton because the U.S. Constitution clearly states the following: "No Senator or Representative shall, during the time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil office under the authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof have been increased during such time." This means that Hillary Clinton could not legally occupy her office of Secretary of State until the year 2013. (7)

Does our U.S. Congress really care about anything or anyone outside of their own little world of oligarchic control? On November 6th, 2009, Politico reported that there are 237 millionaires in Congress, and many of the rest of them are not exactly poor. (8) Many of them have never worked a real job even one day in their lives. The U.S. Congress is now working like mad to force a new health care system upon the ones they call "ordinary Americans," while they themselves refuse to go under it in favor of their own health plan. They have declared themselves exempt from what they are trying to force you and I to do!

On October 29th, 2009, the Washington Post newspaper reported that the West Front of the Capitol would be fenced off because the general public was not invited to the unveiling of the House version of the new health care plan. (9) The West Front of the Capitol is always open to the public, but according to Nancy Pelosi's instructions, it was an invitation-only event, and guests had to be handpicked. Protesters shouted against the new and wicked program. It was reported that one man with a bullhorn cried out, "Nazi Pelosi, you will burn in hell for this."

This infamous Government-run health care plan had grown to 1,990 pages on October 30th, and it went on to exceed 2,000 pages later. There are more pages in this health care legislation than there are pages in War and Peace, Atlas Shrugged, or the entire Lord of the Rings Trilogy. At a cost of over one trillion dollars for the entire package, the cost per word in this document is 2.2 million dollars! (10)

On November 7th, with the blood ritual sacrifice at Fort Hood completed, the House opened their debate on this new legislation that has the potential to destroy our country. (11) Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi quickly broke her promise to post the entire document on the Internet for seventy-two hours prior to a vote. (12) During the darkness of a Saturday night, less than twenty-four hours from the time that discussion began, Pelosi called for a vote and the measure was passed narrowly at 220 to 215. (13)

How heinous and evil is this legislation? Republican leader John Boehner revealed that a separate abortion premium will be charged to all who come under the new health care system, and it will be billed monthly as such! Boehner said the following: "What is even more alarming is that a monthly abortion premium will be charged of all enrollees in the government-run plan. It's right there on line 16, page 96, section 213, under Insurance Rating Rules. The premium will be paid into an U.S. Treasury account, and these Federal funds will be used to pay for the abortion services." (14) Think of it! An U.S. Treasury account specifically for abortions from a specific allocated premium that you and I would be forced by law to pay! The Scriptural curses are upon this nation!

What will happen to people who object to the new Obama-Pelosi plan? According to ranking member of the House Ways and Means Committee Dave Camp, a Republican from Michigan, the Joint Committee on Taxation, or JCT, confirmed the following: "Failure to comply with the individual mandate to buy health insurance contained in the Pelosi Health Care Bill (H.R. 3962, as amended)….and who choose not to pay the bill's new individual mandate tax (generally 2.5% of income) are subject to numerous civil and criminal penalties, including criminal fines of up to $250,000 dollars and imprisonment of up to five years." (15) Apparently the words "liberty and freedom" are being redefined for Americans.

The Beast In Your Bloodstream!

On Friday, October 23rd, 2009, Barack Obama declared a national health emergency regarding the H1N1 influenza virus. The White House declared that a thousand Americans died from the virus and millions were infected. The push was on for immunizations, and soon the manufacturers of the vaccine would reportedly enjoy an income of seven billion dollars. Meanwhile, people would be held in the bondage of fear and terror. At least that was the plan. (16) One question that arises is why did Obama refuse to have his own daughters immunized as reported by the Fox News White House Blog?

There are so many unanswered questions and prevailing uncertainties regarding the vaccines for H1N1 influenza that are being foisted upon the people of the world. Why would the German Army get a special swine flu vaccine without the additives given to the general public? According to Immunology Today, the restricted medical practitioner only edition, published on October 13th, 2009, the Bundeswehr soldiers were given a special vaccine called Celvapan, which did not contain mercury and is additive-free. Defense Ministry spokesman Thomas Raabe stated the following: "The Bundeswehr needs to be able to quickly and impartially inoculate soldiers and their dependants on foreign missions to ensure they were protected without having them at risk of death or disability from the additives." (17) Why should the general public face such risks?

We also know that in America certain so-called high-risk categories of people are given priority status to receive the H1N1 swine flu shot. One of those categories is pregnant women. As I write this, I am looking at many pages of testimonies of young expectant mothers who miscarried and lost their babies shortly after receiving the swine flu inoculation. My heart breaks for these women and their families. They mistakenly put their trust in people who are working for a system that is under the direction of Satan and his illuministic stooges that occupy the highest offices of our government. They are a dirty bunch!

The October 2009 edition of the American Journal of Pharmacology tells of a shocking program that is currently being developed by a giant drug company, Ely Lilly & Co. It is the plan to include antipsychotic drugs in infant formulas as a kind of "immunization" to help prevent episodes of ADHD in children as they age. The spokesman for Ely Lilly said the following: "There will be ethical issues of course but with ethical control over the drug and with reassurance of its safety, I'm sure objections can be overcome. We predict in five years, 1 in 3 children over 4 will be on antipsychotics as a matter of course….." (18) It is obvious that the children are being targeted in many ways to program them as forthcoming planetary citizens of the New World Order!

These are strange times, so unlike any other era of history. These are the days when Dr. Frankenstein could win the Nobel Prize for creating his monster. In fact, it is interesting to note that the story of Frankenstein took place in the area of Ingolstadt, Germany, which is the place where Dr. Adam Weishaupt first formed the Illuminati, along with Baron von Knigge and three others who met in a cave and used magic ritual to contact the one they called the "Controlling Unknown."

Scientists are continually defying God's order of creation. On October 29th, 2009, the London Daily Mail featured an article with the following headline: "No men OR women needed: Scientists create sperm and eggs from stem cells." (19) The unthinkable is happening, and a curse will come with it. Children without parents! Who will raise them, and who will control them?

Brother Can You Spare a Dime?

Those who are either old enough to remember or have studied history will recall the famous picture of the late President Franklin Delano Roosevelt riding in a convertible with a long stem cigarette holder in his mouth and wearing a coat with a fur collar as he traveled up Fifth Avenue in New York City. The caption under the photo said, "Brother, can you spare a dime?" The simple and tragic fact is that most people couldn't spare a dime. It was the time of the Great Depression, and Roosevelt was the multimillionaire "god man" that promised to save the country. We are now in another great depression, even though the government refuses to use those words. As in the first Great Depression, this one is upon us by careful planning and design by the conspirators that we already identified as a dirty bunch!

On October 19th, 2009, the news headlines for CNN Money revealed that the FDIC, which provides insurance to protect the accounts of depositors for up to $250,000 per account, is now broke. In fact, it is in the red until at least the year 2012! (20) It is a Federal insurance company with no reserves! Where is the account protection? In addition to that, banks continue to fail and dig the hole deeper! On November 6th, the Associated Press reported that more banks in Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, and California were closed on that Friday, bringing the total number of bank failures for the year to 120. (21) On that very same day, Freddie Mac, the second largest provider of U.S. residential mortgages, posted a five billion dollar loss! (22) Indeed, the economic situation in America is so bad that NBC News Chicago reported on October 30th, 2009, that many nice homes in the suburbs of Chicago are for sale for one dollar but nobody wants them. People cannot afford to pay the taxes and upkeep on them, so they sit empty. (23) When I read this, I was reminded of Isaiah 5:9 which reads as follows: "In mine ears saith the Lord of hosts, Of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant."

I have written before about the severity of the American national debt, which is astronomical in the truest sense of the word. This debt is also spiraling upward by design as a part of the necessary sabotage needed to destroy the economies of the nation and the world, which will necessitate the creation of a new one-world economic system. The numbers and dates involved never cease to amaze me. Just in time for the witches' sabat of Samhain, or Halloween, the national debt ceiling was raised to thirteen trillion dollars. (24)

The number of unemployed Americans is staggering, and 80% of unemployment recipients in the country are of prime working age, between 25 and 59. Of the top wage earners to lose their jobs, 57% had been working in manufacturing and 24% were in construction. (25) Meanwhile, in Red China the economy is expanding rapidly, and even their auto sales increased 78% in September. (26) On October 15th, 2009, the FDIC told the Associated Press that U.S. banks are about to suffer another wave of trouble as commercial real estate loans go into default. With seven million jobs lost and buildings sitting empty, real estate developers have not paid the banks, and nationwide there is a staggering sum of $500 billion coming due annually. (27) We also see the price of gold skyrocketing to well over $1,100 per ounce! In addition to that, Barrick of Canada, the gold giant, announced on November 11th, 2009, that the world's gold supply is about to run out. New production has been decreasing by 1 million ounces per year for a number of years, and the quality of the ore is becoming very poor and inferior. (28) This is another sign of the times! I am reminded of James 5:1-3, which reads as follows: "Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. 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."

We are not far from the mark of the beast and the new cashless system. On November 9th, 2009, Reuters News Service reported that the new rage all over Europe is "chipping parties," which are held at night clubs and other places of entertainment. Young people in their teens and twenties have been implanted with microchips by the thousands as they attend these parties. They are saying that the insertion of the electronic chip is almost painless and is quickly forgotten. Once it is in, there is no need to carry cash, credit cards, or identification for proof of age. The arm is scanned at the door, and the name and photograph of the person comes up on the screen. Drinks are purchased by the scanning of the arm, as are all other transactions. The club owners in Europe are saying it will soon be mandatory to have a microchip implant or you won't get in! (29)

There Is Something Rotten in Denmark!

This popular saying came from the play Hamlet, written by William Shakespeare, when the character Marcellus said, "There is something rotten in the state of Denmark." It is taken from act I, scene IV. But we have something far more serious taking place in Denmark in December 2009 when the leaders of the world gather for their summit on global warming. The stated purpose of the summit in Copenhagen is to save "Mother Earth" from human exploitation, pollution, and ultimate destruction. It is officially called the United Nations Climate Change Conference of Copenhagen, and it is scheduled for December 7-18, 2009, in Copenhagen. Here let it be noted that all the talk about global warming, environmental impact, and save the planet is just a gimmick to conceal their real purpose. It sounds like such a noble cause to save "Mother Earth" and weld the people behind the effort in a grand unity. Just as the "German Fatherland" gimmick was used by Adolph Hitler to weld his purpose together, so this "Mother Earth" gimmick is to unify the entire world. The treaty actually states the words "A world government is going to be created," and this is written as the first of three purporses. The second stated purpose of the conference is to transfer the wealth from the countries of the West to Third World countries in satisfaction of what is called "climate debt." The leaders of this conspiracy are saying that only the major nations of the West have been polluting all of the Earth, not the Third World countries. Therefore, they say, that we owe them reparations. All of this was revealed and verified as true by a former science advisor to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Lord Christopher Monckton. It was clearly and specifically stated by Monckton that the real purpose of this summit was to officially create the One World Government and enforce allegiance to it. (30)

It is all coming together so quickly now, and all the pieces of the puzzle are beginning to fit together. On October 1st, 2009, it was announced in the news media in England that former Prime Minister Tony Blair is favored to become President of all of Europe to lead the European Union. (31) Tony Blair is heavily involved in metaphysical practice and various forms of witchcraft.

In the November 2009 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, a story was published with the following headline: VeriChip Markets RFID Microchip Implants to ID World International Congress." This world conference was held in Milan, Italy, on November 3-5, 2009, where VeriChip Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Scott R. Silverman made his presentation to this worldwide gathering of experts and leaders. The subject was, of course, electronic identification. (32)

Where are the churches in all of this? Are the leaders of the churches so out-of-touch with God and the Scripture that they don't know or care about Revelation 13:16-17 which reads as follows: "And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." How serious is this? In Revelation 14:9-11, we read about what happens to those who receive this implanted mark or chip into their bodies as follows: "And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb; and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up forever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name."

The sad fact is that the churches are in on the one-world government scheme and are co-conspirators. The pastors have become modern-day Judas Iscariots, who instead of betraying the Lord for thirty pieces of silver are doing it to buy into the electronic worldwide money vault of the damned! In fact, on November 12th, 2009, the World Council of Churches called on every church in the world to ring their bells simultaneously 350 times during the Copenhagen Climate Change Summit. Every church bell in the world is to be rung on the 13th day of December 2009. The bells must be rung 350 times to symbolize the 350 parts per million that mark the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. (33) Thus, the churches of the world are to show their support of the new One World Government that is to be born on that day!

End Time Signs and Warnings!

It is the time of the end and things can happen so quickly. On November 10th, 2009, an electrical blackout hit Brazil, and it left one third of the entire population of that nation in darkness. About seventy million people were without power, and this event happened only weeks after that nation was chosen to host the 2016 Olympics. Power officials say a storm was the cause of the blackout. (34) There is no doubt that the Lord was voicing His disapproval of the pagan Olympic games that honor the "sun-god" and other false deities.

Many hundreds of earthquakes continue to shake the earth, and the entire earth is steadily and consistently crumbling as new fissures are forming in various places. In the heavens there are continual events that should cause us to take notice. On November 6th, 2009, a previously undiscovered asteroid seemed to come from nowhere, and it almost hit our earth. With only a 15-hour warning, this massive asteroid came within 8,700 miles of earth, which is 30 times nearer to the earth than our moon, which is approximately 250,000 miles away. (35) This was a near hit and could have been devastating. NASA is greatly concerned about the earth being hit and has a "Near Earth's Object Program" to try to deal with the problem. They know that it is just a matter of time until the unthinkable happens. Our only hope is our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Everything is in His Almighty hands and He is in control. Keep looking up as you watch and pray.

In closing, I want to thank all of you who support this prophetic ministry. God bless you now and in eternity.
