“For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the
battle?” I Cor. 14:8
The Dawning Of Dark Light!
"The light of the body is the eye; if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!"
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!"
"Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them. But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him."
In this issue of the Last Trumpet, we will once again embrace the words of the Holy Scripture as we view the current conditions of our vexed and troubled world. As true Christians, set apart from the mainstream religions of all types, we know that we walk in the victory and power of our Lord Jesus Christ. We also know that the challenges to that victory are many, and that our faith is tried every day. These are the last days, and the Masterminds of the Illuminati conspiracy know that they must move quickly if they are to achieve their age-old objective of a satanic one-world government.
We are living in a strange time that most people consider to be a time of enlightenment. It is a time that the witches call "the dawning of the age of Aquarius." The doctrines of astrology, which are so essential to witchcraft, are the basis of our entire system of governance in this illuminized nation. We are living in a time when, somehow, killings babies by the millions is acceptable and endorsed by the government. It is a time when homosexuals, lesbians, and perverts of every kind have parades and flaunt their filthy lifestyle. These last days are also a time when the ravenous appetites for pornography and sexual perversion are at an all-time high; a time when people live together in fornication, and it is accepted as normal behavior. It is a time when so-called "Christian" pastors teach the principles of witchcraft and occult philosophy to their congregations by means of Harry Potter books and other evil writings of that ilk. In short, we can clearly see that the Scripture verses at the top of this page have been fulfilled. We are warned by the verses above that a time would come when darkness would be perceived as light. It is a time when baby killing, perversions, and witchcraft would be packaged in the colorful and enticing wrappings of enlightened tolerance and understanding. It is a satanic harmony causing people to pat themselves and each other on the back, because they have risen above the outdated and archaic stringent morality.
The sad truth is that these masses of misguided people, who claim to be "enlightened", are walking in the worst kind of darkness. It is this very kind of darkness that Jesus referred to when he said the sobering words, "If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness." Matthew 6:23.
A New Administration Ruled By The Same Illuminati!
On January 20th, in just a few short days, the occult ceremony of Presidential inauguration will take place. The new Commander-in-Chief will face the sacred Egyptian obelisk, known as the Washington Monument, and take the inaugural omens. I have a picture of the inaugural platform as it is being built, and looming above it in the distance is that accursed image in the distance. I have been inside that Egyptian monument to the pagan sun-god on two occasions, and the presence of evil in that place defies description. The pyramid-shaped top of the structure has two windows that are illuminated with red light at night, and the effect is like two glowing red eyes overlooking the city. This 555 foot piece of masonry sometimes casts an ominous shadow across the reflecting pool toward the capitol building, and it is the first object that the sun strikes as it rises over this occult city in the District of Columbia. It is also interesting to note that if you convert the 555 feet of height into inches, it comes out to 6660, which reveals the number of the beast imbedded in the sacred geometry of the structure. It is with this backdrop that the inauguration will take place at the very moment that the witches are celebrating the sun entering the sign of Aquarius.
We must remember that it was just over one year ago on New Year's Eve, 1999, when, at midnight, the Washington Monument pulsated with a spectacular light show as pulsating light rose rhythmically up this 555 foot shaft of Baal to bring forth a conception of a New World Order. Nine months later, when the spiritual gestation period was complete, at the time of Labor Day, the leaders of world governments and world religions gathered at the United Nations building on the East River in New York City to participate in the birth of a New World Order! All is in readiness waiting to be implemented. We know that occult ceremony, astrology, and witchcraft are the religion of the government and of the New World Order leaders, and they strictly adhere to it.
One more point regarding illuministic ceremony is that before the spectacular light show on New Year's Eve, 1999, on December 23 during a full moon, "C-span" carried a special program of the re-enactment of our first President's funeral. It was the re-enactment of the funeral of George Washington, complete with all of the masonic symbology, and was no doubt signifying the death of our nation prior to the conception of the New World Order.
As true Christians, we are children of the King and secure in the kingdom of the Almighty, who are stationed here in this hostile environment to do a vital work. We know that evil forces are running this country and the world for awhile, but we remain victorious in prayer. After eight years of spiritual disaster in our nation under the governance of Bill Clinton, also known as Mr. Embarrassment, some people seem to think that things will get better now that George Bush will be President. The election of last November, however, revealed many things. Both Gore and Bush were made to appear as losers, and the entire stage was set in uncertainty and ambiguity. This was no coincidence, nor was it happenstance. It was a sign to all of the elitists and conspirators that a plan for a shadow-President was going to be implemented. According to Tom Fitton, president of an organization known as "Judicial Watch", Bill Clinton will "in essence" be governing the country. (1) According to Mr. Fitton, Bill Clinton will have "post-presidency" offices in part of the White House complex that would normally be used by the incoming Bush Administration. (2) Ordinarily, a former President would have to use private office space, but Bill Clinton seems to have been granted a special status. Things are never as they appear to be, especially when the Illuminists have a scheme in common.
On January 7th, Bill Clinton preached a sermon at the Foundry United Methodist Church in Washington, D.C. The sermon lasted precisely 13 minutes: there's that number again! In the sermon, he told the 700 people in attendance, "I look forward to finding out whether John Quincy Adams was right when he said, 'There is nothing so pathetic in life as an ex-president.'" (3) I think he was far more pathetic as President. Bill Clinton concluded his 13 minute sermon by thanking the "parish" for its "welcome to gay and lesbian Christians, people who should not feel outside the family of God." (4) Tell it to the people of Sodom and Gomorrah on Judgement Day, Bill! Pastor J. Philip Wogaman and President Clinton exchanged backslaps. (5)
The question that now remains is, how much will change when the Bush Administration appears to take over? No matter who sits in the Oval Office or the chambers of Congress, if the source of their light and enlightenment is Satan, that dark light will continue to cast the same grotesque shadows, and nothing will change. One prime example is the warning given to John Ashcroft, Bush's pick for attorney-general. New York Senator, Charles Schumer, Hillary's new work partner, strictly warned John Ashcroft that he must enforce abortion laws and laws protecting abortion clinics or else! (6) Ashcroft had called Schumer asking for his support, and when Schumer said he "couldn't do that as of now", Ashcroft asked if they could sit down and talk about it. (7)
President Bush has already stated that he is uneasy with the idea of taking on such controversial issues as gays and women in the military, and rejected Senator Dan Coats for defense secretary after Coats told Bush he wanted to end the "social experimentation and feminization of the military." (8) Where is the astute leadership? Why is everyone so pusillanimous? Senator Charles Schumer, the by-accident-of-birth leader from New York, is projecting Illuminati policy when he defends abortion. Satan has always demanded human sacrifice of every empire and nation, and this one is no different. Abortion is indefensible and cannot be justified, yet no one can seem to do anything about it no matter who presides in power. It is justified among those who bask in the dark light of their master and bow to his desires. God help us. Keep praying and He will!
A Society That Loves Darkness!
So much could be said about the government, leadership and lack thereof, but we must also look to the people who allow it to continue. What can you do with people who are so apathetic toward truth that when you present them with the facts, you don't get so much as a yawn out of them? What happens when people are fed a steady diet of smut, sex, and filth that they are addicted to their lusts? God asked the same question in Jeremiah 5:7-9 as follows: "How shall I pardon thee for this? Thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I fed them to the full, they then committed adultry, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots' houses. They were as fed horses in the morning: every one neighed after his neighbor's wife. Shall I not visit for these things? saith the Lord: and shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?"
A prime example of such lust and evil is the new "prime time" reality series television program called "Temptation Island." I do not watch television, but I have in front of me a page from the TV Guide magazine, and the caption for this program in a full page ad says, "Tonight, true love is put to the ultimate test when four unmarried couples travel to a tropical paradise where 26 sexy, single men and women are waiting to entice them. They thought it was a game. They didn't know how far it would go." (9) The reality of this is that four couples go to this Island for a real test of their faithfulness toward each other. On the Island are 13 men and 13 women who are nearly naked and ready to seduce these couples as true "devil's advocates." Why do the seducers number 13 and 13? How many of them are initiated witches? It is horrifying to think that people are entertained by such things and yield their minds to become a playground for unbridled lust. It is a game of conquest through fornication and is being piped directly into the living rooms at prime time. How many children will see the near-naked people doing their seductive work? Where is the outcry? You can be sure that we will be praying that this horrible program collapses. We have done it before, and we can do it again!
I have another article in front of me from the associated press, which states that Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, is now allowing same-sex commitment ceremonies in its famous Gothic chapel. (10) Duke is affiliated with the United Methodist Church. Unitarians, United Church of Christ members and some Baptists have demanded the same-sex ceremonies, which will be limited to students, staff, alumni, and faculty. (11) Other universities such as Harvard and Stanford also allow such sodomistic ceremonies. (12) Very soon the longsuffering of the Almighty will run out, and amazing wrath will be poured out according to the Scripture.
How Could It Happen Here?
Just after the wild generation of the 1960's rock culture, the flood gates were opened and the wealth of the United States began to flow out of the country as never before. Then, almost as quickly, foreign enterprise came in and took over the wealth of this erstwhile great nation. This was no doubt the judgement of Almighty God. In the latter 1960's and 1970's, the Beatles music group began to glorify and sing about Buddhism, Yoga and Eastern religion. Songs such as "My Sweet Lord", glorifying Hare' Krishna and other pagan "deities", were topping the charts, and young people began to forsake their "Christian" training and embrace Eastern religion in droves. The Bible gives a clear warning of what would happen to people who do that. In Jeremiah 5:15-17, we find the startling and sober warning from the Almighty as follows: "Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith the Lord: it is a mighty nation, it is an ancient nation, a nation whose language thou knowest not, neither understandest what they say. Their quiver is as an open sepulchre, they are all mighty men. And they shall eat up thine harvest, and thy bread, which thy sons and thy daughters should eat: they shall eat up thy flocks and thine herds: they shall eat up thy vines and thy fig trees: they shall impoverish thy fenced cities, wherein thou trustedst, with the sword." Can any thinking person doubt that these verses have come to pass when our stores are filled with products made in communist Red China? Stop and ask yourself how many products currently marketed in our land were manufactured in the lands of "Eastern religions." Is God truly saying to this 1960's generation that is now running our country, "You wanted their religion, gods and goddesses, so I have given them your wealth?" Let us see exactly what the Almighty God said about this as recorded in Jeremiah 5:19 as follows: "And it shall come to pass, when ye shall say, Wherefore doeth the Lord our God all these things unto us? Then shalt thou answer them, Like as ye have forsaken me, and served strange gods in your land, so shall ye serve strangers in a land that is not yours."
Why The Appetite For Witchcraft?
It has often been said that the United States of America is a "Christian nation." In reality, it has become a witchcraft nation, and we are seeing a continual upsurge of the old pagan rites of Wicca, Druidism, and all sorts of occult practices. I can speak with authority on the subject, because I was once involved in that dark and shadowy world as an astrologer and numerologist. Those two practices are essential to witchcraft. The Harry Potter craze is probably the most powerful witchcraft influence operating in our nation at this time. With 35 million of these books in print in 35 languages, Satan has made no small impact on a massive segment of humanity that is driven with lust for such entertainment. Janet K. Rowling, who authored the Harry Potter books, has become the wealthiest woman in Great Britain, and honors continue to be heaped upon her. The Associated Press recently reported from London that Queen Elizabeth II has scheduled Rowling for investiture as an "Officer of the Order of British Empire" for her contributions to children's literature. (13)
The impact of this so-called literature, which teaches children the philosophy and doctrines of witchcraft; how to cast spells, the power of drinking blood, and other such heinous things, has been deep. Sadly, it is all just beginning. In November, 2001, Warner Brothers is set to release the first Harry Potter movie, and theaters are expected to be packed. Then will come all of the related witchcraft toys that will fill the stores just in time for next December's "holiday." Something that is noteworthy regarding the production of this evil and insidious movie is that Metro News reported on January 8, 2001, "Warner Brothers has acknowledged that drug paraphernalia, including syringes and needles, was found at the studio outside London where the Harry Potter movie, 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's New Stone' is being produced." (14) Warner Brothers claimed that they immediately notified authorities, and that no actual drugs were found on the set. (15)
One of the biggest problems regarding Harry Potter witchcraft is that it seems to be a form of witchcraft that ministers and religious leaders of all kinds find easy to endorse. Many religious leaders have boldly claimed that these Potter stories always reveal that good witchcraft is triumphant over bad witchcraft. This reveals how far gone we are, as these ministers, who walk in the dark light of Lucifer, rejoice over "good witchcraft." There is no such thing as good and bad evil. This is the old principle of the yin and yang of Eastern religions, also known as the principle of dualism.
Recently, Rabbi Noson Weisz in a lengthy article that appeared in the Australian Jewish News had this to say, "Harry Potter is not just a best-selling children's series. It is also a modern morality tale. Lord Voldemort, Muggles and Hogwarts have much to teach us about good and evil and the struggle for redemption." (16) This same Rabbi also said, "According to Jewish perspective, evil is not repulsive. On the contrary, to insure that it has an even chance to present us with free will choices, God made evil attractive, giving it tremendous sex appeal." (17) The light that is found in the religions of the last days is truly darkness, and as Jesus said, "How great is that darkness." We at Last Trumpet Ministries have been fighting against the Harry Potter witchcraft for nearly a year, and we will continue to pray and fight. We continue to offer the Harry Potters tracts and the 44 minute tape recording, which uses the contents of the Potter books to unmask the depth of evil in them. You may obtain these materials by writing to this ministry and requesting them.
Harry Potter books are not the only problem. Our youth and young adults are having their minds filled with satanic devices by means of computer and video games that cannot help but badly warp the minds of those involved. A prime example of these sort of games was revealed by an ad that appeared in a recent issue of "Wired" magazine. I do not have the date of the issue, but I do have a full page copy of the ad that was sent to me. The following description appears under the heading, "Game of the month". "Don't let the idea of sacrificing souls to appease a strange god scare you away from sacrifice. The new PC-based strategy game casts you as lead wizard to a mob of gruesome creatures so you can roam the land, destroying enemies in honor of your god. Once you've amassed enough power, take your conquest on-line against other players. The game's 55 creatures, wealth of spells and magic-controlled weather system ensure brutal battles as you sacrifice the souls of your opponents. It sounds brutal, but the games developers have sympathized with the softhearted, who can choose to worship a smiley-faced balloon instead of Charnel, the Lord of slaughter. Lucky you." (18) Pray! It is later than you think!
Great Wrath Upon The Children Of Darkness!
Without a doubt the Almighty is sending signs of his wrath, and we are made to wonder what it will take to wake people up. The Lord is speaking, but who is listening? People who walk in the dark light also have a false hope and are usually the ones who will quickly say that God does not send disasters and catastrophe. Have they forgotten the great flood of Noah's day? Have they forgotten Sodom and Gomorrah? In Jeremiah 5:11-12, we have a clear statement from the Lord regarding this as follows: "For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, saith the Lord. They have belied the Lord, and said, It is not he, neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine."
According to a Reuters news article, "natural disasters" were reported at a record level in 2000. (19) Munich Re, the world's largest insurer, said that there were 850 "natural disasters" in the year 2000 with damages exceeding 30 billion dollars. (20) Devastating forest fires in the United States accounted for more than 1 billion alone. Record numbers of storms, including tornadoes, hurricanes and cyclones, caused widespread devastation. Floods were another major cause of overwhelming losses. Earthquakes also hit in record numbers, and severe drought caused 300 million dollars of loss in Europe alone. (21)
This new year of 2001 has begun with a continual outpouring of trouble upon the empire of the beast and those who choose to walk in the dark light of his realm. As the year 2000 ended, heavy snowfalls and ice caused chaos in Britain and Switzerland. Temperatures in central England fell to a bitter 13 degrees Celsius or 9 degrees Fahrenheit. In Russia, reports of many deaths came as a result of extreme cold. (22) Records were being broken everywhere.
As the year 2000 was ending here in the United States on December 27, we read the following headline, "Deadly Storm Paralyzes Arkansas and Oklahoma." (23) It was a devastating storm of ice that hit President Clinton's home state of Arkansas leaving many hundreds of thousands of people without power. Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee said, "It's really the equivalent of having a nuclear device go off, without the mushroom cloud or radioactivity. Virtually everything is shut down. We have 11 or 12 counties where every single person has lost power, phone service and water." (24) Even the Governor's mansion had neither electricity nor a working telephone line. (25) One report stated, "Everywhere you look, trees are snapped like match sticks. Power lines are down everywhere, and most of the streets are impassable, because we don't know which lines are live. (26) It was announced that people would be without power for weeks in the dead of winter. The state government of Arkansas had to close down twice in two weeks, and the government of Oklahoma gave strict orders, "Stay out of Oklahoma!" (27) The headline for one major news service issued on January 2, 2001, said, "Ice Storm Effects Keep Thousands in the Dark." (28) It made me think of Psalm 147:17, which says, "He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?" I was also reminded that one of God's uses of weather is for correction. In Job 37:10-13 we are told, "By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened. Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud. And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth. He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy."
On January 5, 2001, it was announced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Climatic Data Center that U.S. temperatures in November and December were the coldest ever. (29) December also broke records for snowfall amounts, and places such as Marquette, Michigan, received 89.5 inches of snow in December alone. (30) From coast to coast, our nation was beaten and disabled by severe weather. On December 13, 2000, a New York City newspaper carried the headlines, "Wicked Winds Wallop City." The story revealed that "near-hurricane winds toppled trucks, shook buildings and tumbled trees." (31) On December 31, the stormy skies over New York City dumped over twelve inches of snow on the city that "never sleeps." I believe that the Almighty used this storm to limit the sinful activities of the New Year's Eve celebration that the city is so famous for.
On January 11, 2001, a severe storm hit California involving three feet of snow in some areas with 40 mile per hour winds. In the Los Angeles area, mudslides were triggered, which snarled traffic and downed trees and powerlines. Many thousands were without power. (32) But that was only the beginning of California's power problems. We have all been hearing about the failure of the power companies in California to remain solvent. We know that this is conspiratorial and a manufactured problem, and it is a problem that is now causing rolling blackouts as the crisis deepens. Southern California Edison has announced the layoff of 13 percent of its workers. (33) The people of California are being used as guinea pigs for this illumnistic project, which has blamed deregulation as the problem. The government has now stepped in, and as the news media reported on January 18, 2001, "Blackout Treat Looms Again in California Power Crisis." (34) ABC radio also reported on Jan. 18, 2001, that people in California are scurrying around to buy generators and survival supplies and equipment. (35) We cannot help but wonder what kind of a strain the West coast will put on the nation-wide electrical grid. We know that on January 2, 2001, the electrical grid for the entire region of Northern India failed leaving 226 million people without power. (36)
Earthquakes have also been a continual warning to repent and that the wrath of God is forthcoming. On January 10, 2001, a strong earthquake, measuring 6.7 in magnitude, hit Alaska 65 miles southwest of Kodiak Island shaking homes as far away as Anchorage, which is 330 miles away. (37) On the 13th day of January, 2001, a devastating killer earthquake, measuring 7.6 in magnitude, hit Central America. The death toll has been rising continually, as over 500 aftershocks, some of them fierce (38), have terrorized this predominantly Roman Catholic area of the world.
In closing, I hope and pray that the contents of this newsletter will shake us and awaken us to the need of a closer walk with our Saviour. Please continue to pray for us at Last Trumpet Ministries, and also please accept my heartfelt thanks and appreciation for all of you who support this ministry. I also urge you to send in your prayer requests, and our prayer intercessors will pray for your needs. Each one is handled individually in our Saturday night prayer meetings. People are getting help, and we want to help you! Please join us in prayer on Saturday nights beginning at 6:00 P.M. central time. Grace and Peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
