The Three Sixes of God’s Wrath!
“And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”
“And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.”
“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.”
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will look closely at the time in which we are living and compare the events of these amazing times with the Word of Almighty God. As we will see in this newsletter, there has never been a time such as this, as we are racing across the final calibrations of the time line with eternity being just ahead. We know that the book of Revelation was given to us to reveal events and conditions of the last days, and the metaphor that it is written in gives us clear warnings regarding the last days.
In Revelation 1:1 we are given the key to understanding the entire book, as we are told that the events of the book would shortly come to pass and that the book was signified to John. To signify means to show by signs, and the word “shortly” would indicate that the fulfillment of this book started soon after it was written. The book of Revelation is a book of signs, and thus, we remember the words of the Lord Jesus in Mark 13:37 when He said, “And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.”
As we read the book of Revelation, we find that a scroll is opened as the Lamb breaks seven seals to reveal what is written regarding the end of the world. At the end of the seals is finality and the entrance into eternity. Later, we read of seven trumpets and seven vials. These are clearly two different views of the same events from two different vantage points: heaven and earth. Thus, the trumpets and vials do not run consecutively but rather concurrently. The final events come together at the time of the sixth seal, and the last of the last days seem to begin at the time of the sixth trumpet and sixth vial. In both cases, the river Euphrates is mentioned, and can any thinking person doubt that the current intrigue going on in that ancient land is fulfilling what the Scripture has told us so long ago? Are we indeed living during the time of the 6th seal, the 6th trumpet and the 6th vial? Is it during this strange and unique time when the three sixes of God’s judgment meet that the final antichrist will be revealed, a man whose name brings forth the number 666? Are we now at that very time?
One sign that is given at the time of the sixth trumpet and sixth vial is the sign of the Euphrates River being dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the East. This does not mean that the water of the river disappears, but rather the boundary between East and West is removed. The Euphrates has always been the historic boundary between East and West, between the Orientals and Occidentals. Thus, during the time of the turmoil in the land of the Euphrates or modern-day Iraq, the western world would begin to fill up with people from the East or Orient. This is a sure sign of the last days. This is the time of the signs, and never has there been a more urgent time for watching and praying!
Final Warnings and a Call to Repent!
I recently received a wonderful and informative letter from a medical doctor who has been watching and praying and doing research on the events of these last days. This doctor began to record major events in recent days and noticed a definite pattern as the events were evenly spaced and getting closer together. He then referred to I Thessalonians 5:3 which says, “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” This doctor is very familiar with women in travail or labor as they are about to deliver a child, and since God compared the last days leading up to the coming of the Lord with this process of labor, the doctor began to compare current events to a woman in labor. If the current pattern continues, it will come to a conclusion with the revealing of the antichrist on the sixth day of the sixth month of the year 2006 or 6-6-06. Time will tell.
I often marvel at how the news media is so completely managed in the United States. We have learned from mainstream news sources overseas that a volcanic eruption in the Canary Islands is imminent, and the tidal wave from the collapse of the entire western flank of the volcano will send a wall of water or tidal wave over 300 feet high against our entire eastern seaboard. Bill McGuire, the director of University College London Benfield Hazard Research Centre said, “Boston, New York, Washington D.C., and Miami would be wiped off the map.” The professor also stated that the wall of water would be moving at a speed of nearly 500 miles per hour, the speed of a jetliner. Dr McGuire also said, “This is a certain event. It’s a matter of how we cope with it, not whether or not it is going to happen. We are talking about very serious damage. It’s a h - - - of a situation to be in and I don’t know how we are going to get around it. The U.S. Government must be aware of the threat but I am sure they are not taking it seriously. They certainly should be worried.” (1) Dr. McGuire also pointed out that this volcano known as the Cumbra Vieja Volcano is overdue for a major eruption.
We also have an eye-witness report from the northern reaches of our troubled planet. Dirk Dunning submitted the following report: “I am stunned almost to speechlessness. The Northeast Passage across the Siberian polar ice is open. The glaciers on Ellesmere Island and the northern and northeastern shores of Greenland are collapsing within a matter of days. The channel between Greenland and Ellesmere Island is open…..vast stretches of polar ice are pulverized and floating free in the Arctic Ocean. An immense rent has formed in the ice north of Queen Victoria Island. An even larger tear reaches from Siberia poking at the North Pole itself. The entire north shore of Alaska is ice-free as is all of the northern Siberian shore. In short, the North Pole is falling apart……This is one of the most astounding events in all of human history. And where is it on the news?”
In a similar story, AFP news reported the following: “Residents of llulissat most of whom live off of shrimp and halibut fishing as well as the all-important tourism industry, nearly choked on their morning coffee when The Groenlands Posten newspaper described how the Sermeq Kujalleq glacier, one of the most active glaciers in the world and the towns biggest tourist attraction, had receded by more than five kilometers (3 miles) in the past two years.” (2)
In the United States, the State of Florida was recently ripped and shredded by four major hurricanes named Charley, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne. This sequence of destruction began on Friday the 13th day of August, and the devastation was beyond imagination. Time and again, millions were ordered to evacuate, and many later returned to debris and rubble. Damage was in the billions of dollars. The people of Florida need our prayers, as they were battered beyond belief by these monstrous storms.
The Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, was damaged as their vehicle assembly building was hit by the powerful winds. (3) In some areas every home lost their roofs, and people were left without electricity, drinking water, and the basic necessities of life. Highways and bridges were ripped up, and much of the State of Florida looked like it had been in a war. The hurricanes also spawned tornadoes, which elongated the disasters. Hurricane Ivan alone spawned 114 tornadoes that caused heavy damage as far north as Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Maryland. (4) It should be quite obvious that the Lord is telling us something. In fact, one of our subscribers in Florida sent me a picture of a large suspended billboard which originally carried the message: “We need to talk. God.” A new advertisement had covered this message, but Hurricane Charley ripped the new message from the billboard leaving the original words, “We need to talk – God.” (5)
Volcanoes around the world are continuing to wake up nearly all at the same time. Mt. Etna has been blowing gas rings that look exactly like glowing halos, and it is becoming increasingly active. (6) On September 17th, 2004, Mount Asama in Japan erupted for the 4th straight day. (7) On October 1, 2004, Mt. Bromo in Java rumbled as the residents went there to worship the “spirit of the mountain.” (8) The Piton de la Fournaise volcano on the French Island of La Reunion began to erupt on October 1, 2004. (9) In Mexico, the “Fire Volcano” in Colima state began to burst with lava on October 6th, 2004. (10) In the State of Washington, Mt. St. Helens has been rumbling and steaming, and on October 3, 2004, scientists warned that an eruption was imminent. (11)
Earthquakes continue to happen in all parts of the world just as our Saviour told us it would be in Matthew, chapter 24, and Luke, chapter 21. On September 19, 2004, it was reported that a swarm of 70 earthquakes jolted an area along the California-Nevada border. (12) On September 28, 2004, a strong earthquake hit California along a 350-mile stretch with a magnitude of 5.0 with a strong aftershock. (13) There were numerous other quakes around the world in September, 2004, including a magnitude 6.4 in Manila in the Philippines (14) and a 4.5 quake in Kaliningrad, Russia, which was also felt in Lithuania and Sweden. (15) How long will sinful man continue to ignore the continual warnings of Almighty God?
Spiritual Madness of the Last Generation!
It is no great wonder that the Almighty is causing the earth to tremble and shake. Never has there been such a time as this when spirits of witchcraft and perversion have driven mankind to mock and defy God. Rebellion against the Almighty Creator is the same everywhere in the world. The government of Turkey recently withdrew its law banning adultery in order to be admitted into the European Union. (16) In Massachusetts, National Public Radio recently aired a program about how instruction in gay-sex techniques is showing up in public school classes. The radio program featured a lesbian teacher graphically describing to students the sexual techniques used by gay partners. In addition to that, activists are designing teacher-guides that will introduce homosexuality to children in kindergarten. (17)
In South Korea, the government decided to do a one-month purge against prostitution, which immediately resulted in countless thousands of these harlots to protest by wearing masks and marching on Parliament. (18) The spirits of lust also manifested in Warsaw, Poland, at the Polish erotic fair, where contests were held that are so vile and evil that I cannot print them in this newsletter. (19)
In a recent report, Rebecca Collins of the Rand Corporation stated that sex on television has caused significant numbers of young people between the ages of 12 and 17 to become fully sexually active. (20) A study should not be needed to determine that. This society is saturated with perverse spirits. In California, pornography producers were recently fined, not for producing pornography but for not showing how to do their perverted acts safely. It was OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, that fined the pornographers for not providing safety in the workplace. (21)
In San Francisco, California, it is now legal to do naked yoga anywhere on public streets as long as traffic is not blocked. (22) And if we didn’t have enough trouble, we have now learned that Proctor and Gamble has developed a sex-patch for women to wear as an aphrodisiac. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration put the sex-patch on the fast track on September 21st for quick approval. (23) (September 21st is the witches’ sabat of Mabon.) Our beloved America is disgraced by such filth, and we are truly showing the world our shame and nakedness. I am reminded of the words of the prophet Nahum as found in chapter 3, verses 5 and 6, as follows: “Behold, I am against thee, saith the Lord of hosts; and I will discover thy skirts upon thy face, and I will show the nations thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame. And I will cast abominable filth upon thee, and make thee vile, and I will set thee as a gazingstock.”
I truly feel sorry for the young children of these last days with such ungodly role models continually warping their thinking. Recently, Britney Spears had her second wedding, and the male attendants had the word “pimps” printed on the back of their clothing. (24) Madonna, who is embracing and promoting the Kabbalah, has been speaking at functions such as Spirituality for Kids. She recently made a midnight pilgrimage to a Jerusalem cemetery, holding a mystical candlelit ceremony at the grave of a Jewish sage. (25) The Kabbalah is Jewish mysticism and witchcraft. It is rapidly being embraced by much of Hollywood.
Another reason for Almighty God to manifest His wrath is the prevalence of homosexuality. France now has an entirely “gay” television station called “Pink.” The slogan for the station is “Liberty is worth watching.” (26) In Canada, the homosexuals continue to rise up to higher levels. The Royal Bank of Canada is now asking their tens of thousands of employees to display a rainbow triangle on their work desks. It is a part of their “Safe Space Program.” The rainbow triangle shows that your desk, office, or cubicle is a safe place for gay men, bisexuals, transgendered, and lesbians. This program is being promoted in the bank’s online newsletter “Rainbow Space.” (27) The triangle, of course, represents the pyramid of Illuminism. Here let it be noted that the Bank of Canada recently put into circulation its new 20 dollar bill. In the upper right hand corner of the bill are what look like Braille indentations, even though there is no such Braille pattern. These indentations are arranged like the number six domino, and there are three sets of them. These bills are marked with 666 or the number of the beast. The large number 20 on the front of the bill is filled in with a pattern that looks like a snake skin, and as if this serpentine design is not bad enough, the back of the bill features numerous gargoyles and several demonic faces. This is Illuminati witchcraft of the first magnitude.
Witchcraft! The Power behind the Perversion!
Witchcraft, like homosexuality, is completely out of the closet. Halloween, a day that is strictly a witchcraft sabat, is becoming more important each year as can be seen by the decorations and activities. Because pusillanimous and cowardly ministers refuse to speak against Halloween, and because of the saturation of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings materials, witchcraft goes unchallenged even in fundamentalist churches. Our U.S. military now has many thousands of initiated witches in it. A recent Knight-Ridder article stated, “Wiccans exist in nearly all military branches, some in top ranks.” The article went on to say that the Pentagon wants to accommodate the Wiccans and officially recognizes the following types of pagans: “The Gardnerian Wiccan, Seax Wiccan, Dianic Wiccan, Shaman, and Druid.” (28)
The United Nations is now planning to change our calendar to accommodate witchcraft. The new calendar will be brought into being by U.N. resolution and is to be called “The Thirteen Moon 28-day Calendar of Peace.” (29) In addition to the new calendar, we also know that Maurice Strong and Mikhail Gorbachev are working on an agenda to replace the Ten Commandments with the Earth Charter. Maurice Strong is the Canadian billionaire who was recently appointed President of the U.N. owned University of Peace. The former Soviet President Gorbachev is the head of the State of the World Forum and has his headquarters in the Presidio in San Francisco, California. As we consider all of this, we must remember what Daniel prophesied regarding the antichrist. In Daniel 7:25 we read as follows: “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”
It is becoming ever more obvious that Satan is working hard and fast to revive and completely rebuild all of his old religions and to merge them into a one-world religion. The occult power manifested at the recent Olympics was all a part of the clandestine plot. Now we are seeing the complete restoration of the ancient Parthenon in Greece. (30) This ancient temple is vitally important to the Illuminati, because it is a favorite place of their god “Lucifer.”
Where are the Christians?
We know that the true church of the Lord Jesus Christ has victorious power over all the realm of Satan, but in these last days, something very peculiar is happening that was foretold long ago. In Amos 8:11-12 we read as follows: “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.”
The reason for this spiritual famine is that churches have chosen social events, idolatry, pagan holidays, rock music, Harry Potter witchcraft, false “Bibles”, and numerous other kinds of foolishness and abominable filth. Only a remnant of true believers is left. This small and discerning remnant continues to fight spiritual battles and to shine forth the glorious light of the true Gospel of the real Jesus Christ. The apostate churches of so-called united “Christendom” are so completely void of discernment that Satan can get away with almost anything. Recently, a new bible has become popular. It is called The Gospel According to Disney. This false bible teaches children that prayer is answered by magic, and they are to have “faith, trust, and pixie dust.” (31)
In Kennesaw, Georgia, a Southern Baptist youth group meets at Hooters for Bible studies. Hooters is a restaurant chain that features nearly naked women as waitresses. This “study group” is called “Single Focus Atlanta” and a Southern Baptist minister, who calls himself “Reverend” Dennis Rogers, said, “It is something Jesus would have done.” (32)
There are many other such abominable things going on such as the new “Christian” work out video called Sweating in the Spirit, which features women in skin-tight clothing gyrating to songs by “Christian” artists such as Kirk Franklin, Yolanda Adams, and Shirley Murdock. (33) I am made to wonder how such things would be regarded by the early Christians, who were killed by lions and were burned at the stake and suffered many other things for the Gospel. Churches today are being fed spiritual junk food, including such things as The Prayer of Jabez, Promise Keepers, The Purpose-Driven Life, and so on. It is one gimmick after another. The program of The Purpose-Driven Life is nothing more than a spiritual multi-level marketing plan for souls and involves many new-age principles in its forty-day program. We must also note that the book, The Purpose-Driven Life by Rick Warren, has been on the New York Times’ best seller list for 86 consecutive weeks. (34) This man has made millions of dollars from his new-age book and undiscerning people clamor for more.
With Halloween, the witches’ sabat of Samhain, now upon us, the witchcraft in the churches really becomes visible. The latest craze among nominal “Christians” is the Jesus O’ Lantern, which is a hollowed out pumpkin with the face of Jesus etched into it. It is done by taking a picture of a picture of what is supposed to be Jesus and using the negative by taping it onto the pumpkin. The white areas are etched into the surface. The children are also instructed to take the negative, stare at it for thirty seconds, then close their eyes, and then look at a white wall, and they will see the face of Jesus on the wall. (35)
We know that Halloween is strictly witchcraft and has nothing at all to do with Christianity. Why has Dr. James Dobson’s “Focus on the Family” organization recently aired a radio program featuring two women who are promoting Halloween as a “Christian” holiday? These women are promoting Halloween and All Saints’ Day by connecting the Christian martyrs to it. They are saying that Christians should give out the biggest candy bars and best treats and thus reclaim Halloween for Christianity. (36) Much could be said about this, but suffice it to say that Halloween was invented by witches at the behest of Satan himself, and the original meaning of the Jack-O-Lantern, which was illuminated with a candle made from human tallow, was to show cooperation with the Druid witches of England. These witches held a human sacrifice ritual at Stonehenge in England on October 31, involving a huge bonefire and later called a bonfire. Jeremiah 10:2 warns us to “learn not the way of the heathen.”
Elections and Deceptions!
With Election Day upon us, many people are wondering what to do. We know that the masterminds of the Illuminati conspiracy will make sure that their choice wins. The only votes of conscience for the Christians are to be on their knees in prayer. These are times of great deceptions and people are so easily manipulated. John Kerry recently spoke to thousands of Baptist ministers and opened with the words, “Through many dangers, toils, and snares, I have already come.” The thousands of ministers burst into cheers, and Kerry continued by saying, “’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home.” (37) We must never forget that John Kerry, like George Bush, is a member of secret societies such as the Skull and Bones. Neither of them renounced their Skull and Bones membership, because the only way out is to publicly break the vow of secrecy; otherwise you are not out! I am not surprised that when John Kerry came to Wisconsin, he went to the little town of Mount Horeb. (38) Mount Horeb is infamous for its occultism, including the numerous carved trolls along its main street, which is called the “Mount Horeb Trollway.” This is the area of one of the most powerful witch covens in the world known as Circle Sanctuary. I have done spiritual battle with Circle Sanctuary a number of times.
We have also learned that the Vatican has given Catholics permission to vote for candidates favoring abortion rights. This is an indirect endorsement of John Kerry. Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the Vatican’s arbiter of doctrinal orthodoxy, announced this special leeway to vote for certain politicians favoring abortion on September 15th, 2004. (39) It appears that John Kerry, a pro-abortion Roman Catholic, has the smile and nod of the Vatican. Mr. Kerry and his wife would also be the richest first couple of all time with a combined personal wealth of 3.2 billion dollars. (40)
The record of George W. Bush speaks for itself, and clearly, both Bush and Kerry are stooges for the globalist masterminds. No matter who is elected or otherwise holds the highest office of the land, we are in a lot of trouble. I take comfort in knowing that Jesus Christ is the King of Kings now, and He always will be!
Preparing the Way for the Kings of the East!
The Bible warns us in many places to watch out for the eastern powers. Why has the U.S. Congress appropriated 20 million dollars per year for North Koreans and made them eligible for asylum in the U.S.? (41) Why is China never called “Red China” anymore? I am looking at a picture taken on September 19th, 2004 of the nine-member Polit-Bureau with ten red flags with the large Communist hammer and sickle behind them. (42) Communism and Comm-UN-ism is very much alive. As we watch oil prices climbing toward 60 dollars per barrel, we must remember that Red China is now consuming a full one-third of the world’s oil supply.
In the United States, Homeland Security is building security bases from Bellingham, Washington, to Plattsburgh, New York. There is to be continual air surveillance of the Canadian border. (43) Strangely enough, there doesn’t seem to be much of a boundary between the U.S. and Mexico anymore! Our beloved America is being systematically taken over and bled dry, and hardly anyone seems to care! Because of one major day of terror on September 11th, 2001, our freedoms have been dissolving away. Something similar to our situation is also happening in Russia. Because of the terrible terrorist activity at a school this past September, Vladimir Putin, the Russian President, is restructuring Russia and is being called Russia’s new Czar. (44) In the name of anti-terrorism, Putin is instituting his own version of a Department of Homeland Security and is “centralizing authority.” (45) The whole world is under the continual pressure of a sinister force to bring forth the antichrist governance.
Iran is now being sternly warned to stop its program of uranium enrichment for the production of nuclear weapons. Iran is being accused of working toward the production of weapons of mass destruction. (46) There is only one to whom we can turn in these uncertain times, and that is the Lord Jesus Christ. He has all power. Quite sadly, the world looks elsewhere. There are those within the United Nations who are calling for the General Assembly to be moved to Geneva, Switzerland, and to have Bill Clinton as the head of what is to be called “The Committee of Wise Men”, in order to solve the world’s wars and problems. (47) Never have things been moving so quickly as in these last days. May God give us a love for the truth and a dedication to the obedience of His Word.
In closing, I continue to urge everyone to watch carefully and pray fervently. We are here to help. Remember to send your prayer requests, because each one receives individual and person attention. Also remember that this newsletter is available in audio form, especially for the visually impaired. A special thanks to all who support this end-time ministry in so many ways. Grace and peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
