America, A Nation Numbered And Finished!
"Then was the part of the hand sent from him; and this writing was written. And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians."
"Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. Why should ye be stricken any more? Ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment. Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers."
"And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts."
In this issue of the Last Trumpet, we will examine the numerous major events of our day in the light of God's Word. We will see that these amazing times were foretold in the Scripture, and that we are the people who are experiencing the final fulfillment of end-time prophecy. We know from reading the books of Daniel and Revelation that one-world governments or empires are viewed by the Almighty as beasts that rise up to control all people. The prophet Daniel saw a number of these beasts in visions and dreams, and according to Daniel 8:27, the prophet fainted and was sick certain days. Thus, Daniel saw the time in which we live, and he saw what we are now beginning to go through, and it caused him to faint and be sick for days. As Christians, should we not come fully awake and pray continually? We will be heard from heaven, and we will be victorious!
These are trying times, and I have a very heavy heart as I write this. Hard times are coming, and even now we see our nation crumbling all around us. As antichrist powers are at work to realign and reshape the entire world, and as these evil and conspiratorial principalities and powers seek to enthrone Satan as the god of this world we feel the repercussions and reverberations of hell's devices in a crescendo rising to full manifestation. All of the evil spirits and their devices from every ancient and fallen empire from the beginning of the world are now converging into the framework of the last allotted segment of time. That is why our deceived people and their churches have such a fascination with the occult, the paranormal, and the psychic forces. Many deceptive spirits are at work as leaders of government and religion are in full capitulation with devils as Satan moves his people into final position. Only those who actively fight the enemies of God's Kingdom will have the discernment to realize what is happening, and only they will have true victory on the last day!
War In The Ancient Land!
For months, we have been watching the massive military buildup in the area surrounding Iraq. The United States has been sending divisions, battalions, regiments, and all kinds of battle groups to the Persian Gulf and surrounding areas. One third of the British Royal Air Force is also in that region of the world. I have a picture in front of me showing President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair both grinning widely as they shake hands to seal a "war pact." (1) President Bush is chomping at the bit to pulverize the nation of Iraq, and it is becoming increasingly clear that he has personal reasons for doing so. In a statement made recently, President Bush emotionally declared in regard to Saddam Hussein, "This is the man who tried to kill my dad." He was referring to the foiled assassination plot to kill then President George H.W. Bush while in Kuwait in 1993. (2) This passion against Iraq was also obvious in the President's State of the Union message of Tuesday, January 28, 2003. Here let it be noted that the traditional day for this yearly message was January 20, because it is the day that the sun moves into the 11th sign of the zodiac, which is the new age sign of Aquarius. Nothing is more obvious than the fact that our government operates on the occult cycles of astrology and witchcraft. In the case of this presidential message, the President also waited until 11 days after the full moon to give his warhawk speech. At the end of that speech, the President said the following words: "We Americans have faith in ourselves but not in ourselves alone. We do not know - we do not claim to know all the ways of Providence, yet we can trust in them...." (3) Here let it be noted that we never hear the so-called "Christian" President use the name of the Lord Jesus. He often uses the word "God", but that can mean a lot of things. Who is his god? At the end of the State of the Union message, he did tell us who his god is. He used the word "Providence", spelled with a capital "P", in the middle of a sentence. The word "providence" can be defined as "God's care", but when it is capitalized it is a supreme being. We find that word, "providence", only once in the Bible in Acts 24:2 as the pagan orator Tertullus introduces himself to the pagan Felix, a Roman governor. All upper-level Freemasons and high-level members of other secret societies know that "Providence" means Lucifer, who is really Satan. As a former witch and occultist, I can tell you that this is common knowledge among them.
Many have wondered when this imminent war will start. The protests have been many, as millions of people have been rising up against it. Even the military leader of the first Gulf war under the previous President Bush, General Norman Schwartzkopf, opposed the current President's efforts. (4) Something happened, however, since he first made that declaration, for he has now retracted his comments. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld recently announced that "GI's must dig in for a long haul." (5) We are also being told that this war could cost as much as 358.1 billion dollars, (6) which is approaching one-half trillion, which is an amazing amount considering the deplorable condition of the United States' economy. Hundreds of thousands of people are out of work, and businesses are closing down continually. Only a few years ago it seemed that almost every business had signs in their windows saying "help wanted." Now as I go through the larger cities, I see large banners in front of stores and businesses saying "not hiring" or "store closing." It is just as the Bible said in the Scripture verses at the beginning of this letter, a foreign people has eaten up our land, and they are still devouring it before our very eyes. It is because we are such a rotten and sinful nation, and it would be reprehensibly audacious of the people of this land to say "God bless America" without first having a tearful and heart-rending repentance and true turning away from sin!
Many people are unnerved and uneasy about this imminent war and are on pins and needles wondering when it will start. The witches and astrologers that act as a priesthood for our illuministic government would advise them to wait for the influence of the "Mars ingress." The month of March is named for the planet Mars, which in Greek is called Aries. It was the Apostle Paul who preached to the men of Athens from Areopagus or Mar's Hill and told them that they were too superstitious. (Acts 17:19-22) Astrologers would tell the warmongers that the Mars ingress starts after February 20 and comes to fullness on March 20.
I stand in awe as I consider what could happen when the forces attack the ancient land of Iraq. North Korea has already announced that they will launch a "pre-emptive first strike" with nuclear weapons against the United States as soon as we attack Iraq. This was announced on the BBC from England. According to a mainstream Australian newspaper, North Korea has nuclear weapons and can produce about 55 per year. (7) The North Koreans also have the capability of hitting the West coast of the United States with these nuclear warheads. We have now learned that the nation of Iran has secretly built two large nuclear facilities and is becoming a threat. (8) It seems that the whole world has become a powder keg waiting for a detonator to set it off. No doubt, we are facing the horrifying facts of an impending World War III, and it will be nuclear!
It is significant that Iraq is the country chosen by the masterminds of the Great Illuminati Conspiracy to trigger World War III. Iraq is the ancient land of Mesopotamia, also known as the "cradle of civilization." It is the land of the original Garden of Eden where sin first entered the world. It is also the land of the ancient people of Sumer where astrology began, and later it became the empire of Babylon. The Tigris and Euphrates Rivers flow through this ancient land, and the Scripture makes an amazing and timely declaration regarding this area and the end of the world. In Revelation 16:12 we read, "And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared." We must remember that the entire book of Revelation was signified to the Apostle John according to chapter one, verse one. To signify means to show by signs, and there is a language of prophecy called metaphor, which makes a picture that is worth a thousand words. You will note, for example, that Revelation 17:15 indicates that the word "waters" in prophecy means "peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues." When we apply that to Revelation 16:12, which tells us of the "water of the Euphrates" being dried up, we can understand that it is the people of the Euphrates or the Iraqi people. Thus, when these people are attacked and conquered, the kings of the East such as China, North Korea, and all of the others, would rise up and the world would be at war. Can any thinking person doubt that we are seeing this very thing materializing before our very eyes? Consider the words of Revelation 16:12-16 as follows: "And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon."
World War III is looming largely on the horizon and the latter day composite beast of Revelation, chapter 13, is rising up. At the end of that 13th chapter of Revelation, we are told that the number 666 was the number to watch for, as it is the number of a man. That number, 666 is popping up everywhere. Here let it be known that CBS news carried a message from "Reichsmarshall" Rumsfeld, the U.S. Secretary of Defense, when he spoke the following words on February 7, 2003, "The war with Iraq could last 6 days, 6 weeks, or 6 months." It is no coincidence that his brief statement contained three sixes or 666! (9)
A Sign In The Heavens!
On February 1, 2003, at 9:00 A.M. Central Time, the space shuttle "Columbia" exploded over the President's home state of Texas. I was in the Beaver Dam post office when I heard the news, and immediately the Almighty began to speak to me, and my mind began to race as it filled with the spiritual details and significance of the event. This was a great sign in the realm of the sun, moon, and stars to warn all of the people of the world that the end is near. I immediately thought of Luke 21:25-26 which says, "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken." With war looming and the spirits of the prince of the powers of the air marshalling his forces to trigger World War III, I heard President Bush say the ominous words, "The Columbia is lost; there are no survivors." When we realize that the word "Columbia" means America as defined by the dictionary, it is sobering to consider that definition with what the President said. Is there a deeper meaning here in the words, "Columbia (America) is lost, there are no survivors?" This truly should awaken us to our spiritual condition.
As I began to examine this event, many things became quickly obvious. February 1st is the eve of the witches' high sabat of Imbolc. Imbolc is a Scotch-Gaelic word that means "in the belly", and the witches celebrate it as a high cross-quarter sabat to honor the first stirrings of the new spring in the womb of "Mother Earth." Oddly, it was also the Chinese New Year's Day, and Red China is one of the greatest enemies of the United States. We also know that this tragic shuttle flight carried the first Israeli astronaut, and one of the primary wreckage sights was Palestine, Texas. (10) I have personally visited and have done research at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and because I was saved out of the occult, I was able to recognize that our space program is occult. Every shuttle leaves earth from an area known at the Kennedy Space Center as "area 39." There is no area 38 or 40, only 39, which in witchcraft is three 13's or triumviral 13. All astronauts walk to the shuttle along a walkway called "the yellow brick road", so named from the Wizard of Oz. The yellow brick road is the path of the wizard. This shuttle disaster had many other implications, as it was passing over the 33rd parallel of latitude flying at 18 times the speed of sound and was 39 miles high when the explosion occurred. The number 33 is the number of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, and in numerology, the number 18 is three 6's, and as previously mentioned, the number 39 is triumviral Wiccan power. The shuttle took off from Florida and exploded over Texas connecting two of the Bush brothers together. George W. Bush had been governor of Texas and is now President. His brother, Jeb Bush, is governor of Florida. It was the vote hang-up in Florida that caused George Bush to make it to the presidency by decision of the Supreme Court and not purely by election. Florida is the "sunshine state" and Texas is the "lone star state", and the event happened on the day of the new moon. These are signs in the sun, moon, and stars. We also know that the shuttle Columbia was launched on January 16th, and that it was in space for 16 days and exploded 16 minutes prior to landing, so we again see three 6's in the event. We also know that the cycle of warning is now complete, for the shuttle Challenger exploded on take off, and Columbia exploded while trying to land. The Columbia had 22 years of service, which is two 11's, and when the disaster was reported on CNN, the local station used was channel 13. The flag was raised and lowered to half staff at the Kennedy Space Center at exactly 11:00 A.M. Eastern Time. Thus, the shuttle exploded at 9:00 A.M. Central Time, and the flag was set at half staff at 11:00 A.M. Eastern which connects the two time zones by a 9 and 11 or 911.
The day after the shuttle explosion, the New York Post referred to the event with the headline "Death Comet." (11) The same newspaper had another headline inside the paper which said, "Numb Nation Weeps For Its Fallen Stars." (12) This immediately arrested my attention, because witches believe that a falling star is a sign that a witch has died. It was President Bush who called attention to the fact that "Christian, Hindu, and Jewish faiths" were all represented on this shuttle. (13) The President also said, "The seven souls did not return safely to Earth, yet we can pray that all are safely home." (14) Is that the doctrine of our so-called Christian President? It was one day before the explosion that Laurel Clark, a new ager from Racine, Wisconsin, e-mailed her family and said, "I hope you could feel the positive energy that I beamed to the whole planet as we glided over our shared planet." (15) It was the Almighty who said in Obadiah, verse 4, "Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the Lord." There is an international space station that is nesting among the stars with shuttles going back and forth to that celestial nest, which is a modern-day, high-tech tower of Babel, and God said he would bring it down. I have no doubt that this entire tragic event was a sign from the Almighty of horrifying things that are soon to come.
There is one more thing that I must mention about the space shuttle Columbia. This spacecraft was in deplorable condition. I have a large photograph of the shuttle standing and ready for launching from area 39. The photograph clearly reveals the tattered condition of the craft. (16) It looks like it was ready for the junk yard. Furthermore, on August 25, 2002, Don Nelson, an aeronautical engineer and NASA veteran of 36 years, wrote the following words in a letter to President Bush, "It is my duty to inform you that our space shuttle astronauts are in immediate danger. Your intervention is required to prevent another catastrophic space shuttle accident." (17) The warning was ignored by the President, and the rest is history. I know from the Scripture that God pours out His judgement upon the ungodly in such a way that they are taken in their own devices on their own pagan days and within their own pagan number patterns of their religion. The evidence of such a judgement regarding this sign in the heavens is overwhelming!
The True State Of The Sinful Union!
At the end of January, our President delivered his made-to-order state of the union message reading from a teleprompter with screens on either side of him. While he praised the United States and his own warhawk agenda, he did not give us a true picture of the condition of the United States, which is accurately presented in Isaiah, chapter one, at the beginning of this newsletter.
We live in a nation that is going into financial ruin. We have a bear market that has wiped 13 trillion dollars off global stocks. (18) (That number 13 keeps popping up!) Meanwhile, Red China maintains most favored trade status and is helping to bankrupt our nation. In addition to that, over 1,000 Red Chinese have arrived at the Chicago O'Hare airport since September, 2002. These Chinese men between the ages of 15 and 35 are all undocumented and have no papers of any kind. They are held for two weeks by the INS and then released into this country because they are claiming asylum. (19) If they are truly seeking asylum, why are they all males of military age? In addition to that, why is our CIA rapidly recruiting what they call Chinese Americans to fill their ranks? (20)
Our nation is also morally bankrupt and full of shocking sins, and people have developed an appetite for filth of every kind. Sex crimes are rampant, and the state of California recently announced that they "lost track" of 33,000 convicted sex offenders. (21) Sodomites are everywhere and have worked their way into many government positions. Is this serious? Remember what God did to Sodom and Gomorrah? It was recently reported that here in the United States, the homosexual community is playing a new thrill game that is rampant from coast to coast. The thrill is to try to become HIV positive. Those who are already positive are called "gift givers" and infect the knowing and willing recipients called "bug chasers." A full 25 percent of all newly infected men were bug chasers, and some said that the moment of transmission was the ultimate thrill. One infector said, "I'm murdering him in a sense, killing him slowly, and that's sort of, as sick as it sounds, exciting to me." (22) We are made to wonder why the so-called "Christian" President Bush handpicked certain known homosexuals for positions in his administration. We must also question the poetry symposium that was planned for the Bush White House to honor Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, and Walt Whitman. It was Langston Hughes who was noted for his infamous poem "Goodbye Christ." The event was cancelled because there was fear that some anti-war thing would be said during the event. (23)
We live in a nation that is computer driven and vulnerable to many kinds of attack. On January 25, 2003, a fast-spreading computer virus infected 39,000 computers. The Bank of America Corporation reported that 13,000 automatic teller machines could not be used. (24) (Watch those numbers!)
We live in a country that has a new Department of Homeland Security, which operates like the Gestapo of Nazi Germany and watches the people of this country with an illuministic eye, and yet allows seven million known illegal immigrants to reside in this country. (25) The government of the United States is also pushing like mad to get people vaccinated with the new smallpox vaccine, which makes many people extremely ill and severely scars them. What is in those needles that they are not telling us about?
When this nation went to code Orange in the terror alert system some amazing admissions and activities began to surface. On February 8, 2003, at 10:00 A.M. Central Time, CBS radio news broadcasted that the state of Colorado's bio-terrorism plan allows them to seize antibiotics and dig mass graves for victims. (26) Has there ever been such a time as this, when plans have been made to dig mass graves for American citizens? These laws hold true in every state under the new "Model Health Powers Act." Has there ever been a greater need for prayer? What will it take to wake people up? When the backhoes begin to dig the mass graves and bloody turmoil begins, will that do it? As Christians we do not fear, for our Saviour is coming!
The Last Days Of A Bewitched Nation!
The United States of America is currently under a double spell and a double curse. The people of the United States have a voracious appetite for the occult, and their souls are feeding on the books and movies that are training courses on the occult in both philosophy and actual workings of the craft. The Harry Potter materials, as well as the Lord of the Rings movies and books, have captivated the people of America. The fifth Harry Potter book is set to be released on June 21, 2003, which is the witches' sabat of Midsummer. (27) As a former witch, I can tell you that these books are pure evil and will lure the minds of the children of all ages into the dark and shadowy realm of the occult, which is forbidden by the Almighty God, particularly in Deuteronomy 18:10-11. Everything forbidden that is found in those verses are glorified in the Harry Potter materials. Recently, the Vatican officially endorsed and gave two thumbs up to the Harry Potter material. (28) The Vatican official, "Father" Peter Fleetwood, said, "I don't think that any of us grew up without the imaginary world of fairies, magicians, angels, and witches. J.K. Rowling is Christian by conviction, is Christian in her mode of living, even in her way of writing." (28) What heinous treason against the cross of Jesus Christ! I must also mention that a book has recently been written by a man named John Granger entitled The Hidden Key To Harry Potter, in which he translates the Latin spells used in the books (29) so anyone can use them. The fifth Harry Potter book is entitled, Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix, which plays directly into the scheme of the New World Order and the New Age of Aquarius. God help us and especially our children!
The Lord of the Rings movies are equally evil, and The Fellowship Of The Ring has been taking top honors in the "people's choice awards." (30) The witches thrive on the books and movies of J.R.R. Tolkien. The elves and magic contain doctrines common to Wicca and druidism, and when people go to see these movies, they are actually going to church, a church of Lucifer or Satan. It should be so obvious to anyone who knows anything about true Christianity and the Bible that the Lord of the Rings materials are witchcraft of the first magnitude and bring forth many curses into the lives of people and their nation. The author J.R.R. Tolkien even invented two languages like nothing on earth and used them in his books. Everything centers on a magical ring from which power is drawn and which makes the wearer invisible. Here let it be noted that George W. Bush, the President of the United States, constantly wears a ring on his left ring finger, which when enlarged proves to be the very same magical ring from the Lord of the Rings. (31) What is it doing on our President's hand? The ring has strange swirls and markings common to witchcraft, and the swirls form a series of abstract 6's. Does the President think he is invisible? Is he drawing power from this ring? May God help us to understand this time that we are living in, and may we yield to his will and pray without ceasing. Time is almost gone!
In closing I want to encourage everyone to cry out to the Saviour, and you can be sure that He will hear you, for this He has promised. I also urge you to continue to send in you prayer requests as we take them very seriously and will bring them to the throne of Almighty God. I also want to thank all of you who send in news items, and who support this end-time ministry. I pray that God will bless you exceedingly. Grace and Peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
