The Tragic Condition of Willful Ignorance!
"Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished. But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men."
II Peter 3:3-7
"Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at naught all my counsel, and would none of my reproof; I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; when your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices."
"And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will examine a condition that has brought the people of this present world to the very doors of antichrist domination and an ultimate one-world Luciferian government. I am referring to a prevailing condition of the mind and heart that is unifying the populations of this world, especially the people of the United States, and drawing them into the regions of the dark mist of chosen ignorance and apathy.
The Bible verses above tell us of a people who continually refuse to look upon the obvious. The Apostle Peter referred to these people of the last days as "willingly ignorant." The Almighty Saviour is continually bringing forth signs of warning to a people, especially professing "Christians", who are in such need of repentance. These are people who have been pickled in the brine of religion for so long that they cannot think for themselves. These people of the last days, so clearly described in Scripture, have settled into a comfort zone that is void of spiritual responsibility.
The great problem is that there is no remedy for people who ignore the obvious, discount the truth, and refuse to acknowledge the signs from Heaven. How long can people turn their heads and pretend they just do not see? As we look at the events that are continually happening in the realms of religion, economics, government, and society in general; we see a deterioration of morality, character, and principle. In fact, the very conditions that existed in the Roman Empire as it began to crumble and decay until it finally fell into absolute ruin now exist in the United States! How long will it be until America falls? Will people ever wake up to their need to repent? The good news is that you personally can call upon the Saviour and obey the Gospel message. When everything around you begins to fall, you can be secure in His saving hands. If you pray to the Lord Jesus Christ, he will hear you! Do it now, while a little time remains. Eternity is just ahead!
Signs of Judgment to Come!
Truly, we now are living in the time foretold by our Saviour. Everywhere we look we are seeing wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, pestilences, and many other signs in heaven and on earth. Here let it be noted that the real problem is not global warming, but rather global sinning. Judgment will always eventually follow sins and abominations -- either sooner or later! One example that I made reference to in a recent newsletter was the massive flooding and destruction by water in Gloucestershire, England, this past summer. It happened in the very area where the Harry Potter witchcraft films were made and just after the latest movie in that series was released. Pictures of the flooding were shocking as the damage was so widespread and severe. But that was not the end of the problem. A British newspaper, The Metro, reported on August 21st, 2007, that Britain had been invaded by a deadly mosquito in that region of Gloucestershire, where the clay soil made the flood waters look very red, like diluted blood. These were no ordinary mosquitoes but a breed that transmits twenty-three infections; some of them are deadly. This Asian tiger mosquito is 5mm long, has yellow stripes, and is a prolific biter. (1)
When I look at the charts provided by the U.S. Geological Survey, I continue to be amazed at the amount of strong earthquakes throughout the world. As of October 1st, 2007, there had been 356 major earthquakes in the past thirty days with a magnitude of 4.0 or greater. The quakes seem to be getting stronger and more frequent, especially in the Pacific Rim area. These quakes are behaving just like a woman in labor, whose pains get stronger and closer together. I am reminded of I Thessalonians 5:3, which reads as follows: "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."
On September 30th, 2007, an island in the Red Sea was ripped apart and destroyed by a powerful volcano. The island of Jazirt Mount al-Tair, about 80 miles from Yemen, collapsed as lava spewed hundreds of feet into the air, and volcanic ash reached levels of over one thousand feet above the Red Sea. The lava gave off an eerie green glow as the ground opened, and soldiers who were stationed there were burned alive. The eruption was preceded by a 7.3 magnitude earthquake two days before. (2)
Pressure from the inner earth is mounting continually, and we are made to wonder how long it will be until the big one hits as Revelation 16:18-20 describes it: "And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings, and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found."
In a recent newsletter, I mentioned one of the Solomon Islands that was completely lifted out of the Pacific Ocean and fifteen feet into the air. Now this island in the Red Sea has been completely ripped to shreds. We are now in a critical time that is leading up to the fulfillment of the above Scripture verses.
On September 20th, 2007, BBC News reported that an object from space had streaked through the sky over Peru and slammed into the ground at Carancas. The unidentified object looked like a giant fireball, and it left a crater ninety-eight feet wide and twenty feet deep. Some scientists said it must have been a meteor, but other scientists disagreed but were at a loss to say what it was. Strange and unidentifiable vapors began to rise from the crater, and people in the area began to get sick. Many of the people in Carancas complained of headaches, nausea, and vomiting shortly after the object landed. The people of the city were greatly frightened, because their water supply was also contaminated. (3)
When I heard about this event, I was reminded of Revelation 8:10-11, which reads as follows: "And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; and the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter."
Was this poison fireball that fell in Peru and contaminated the waters a sign of something much bigger that is soon to come?
Induced Economic Chaos in the United States!
It has been truly stated by economists that no government has ever outlived its economy. When the economy falls, so does the government. A new government and economy rises to replace the old one. Can any thinking person doubt that this is happening in America at this present time? Is the economy of the United States being deliberately sabotaged? Is a new electronic economy being developed to replace our current system of paper and ink? Will people enter this system by being marked in order to buy and sell? Something strange is going on!
On July 24th, 2007, The Business Journal of Milwaukee reported that foreclosures in the state of Wisconsin were up twenty-three percent. (4) On that same day, Inman Real Estate News reported that California mortgage defaults were so great in number that on mortgages statewide, homeowners were a median five months behind on their payments. (5) I find it very interesting and amazing that it is the housing market and mortgages that are now crippling our economy. When we consider the etymology of the word mortgage, we find it comes from the same root word as mortuary and mortician. The root word is the Latin word mortus, which means to die. Thus, the word mortgage literally means death contract. You can check this in your dictionary. We also know that the dollar sign ($) the letter "S" with a bar through it, dates back to the Middle Ages and means under the scourge or bondage of Satan. This brings a whole new dimension to our American economy when we think of all the people who have signed their names to a death contract under the bondage of Satan and put their names next to the dollar sign. I believe the Almighty will help all of His people get out of debt if they truly want to. The American economy is a wicked system of credits and currencies that forces everyone to interact with it to some extent. We must never give our hearts to it, however. Incidentally, the British pound sign is an "L" with a bar through it, which means under the scourge and bondage of Lucifer.
The economy of the United States remains highly unstable in a global sense. On July 28th, 2007, the Associated Press reported that the Dow and S&P had their worst week in five years, losing 208 points in two days. (6) Two days later, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson stated that the national debt ceiling would have to be raised beyond the current 8.965 trillion dollars. (7) This is an astronomical amount and it keeps getting worse. On August 9th, 2007, the Dow Jones industrials sunk by 387 points and precipitated a worldwide reaction. (8) On August 15th, 2007, the Associated Press reported that existing home sales were falling in forty-one states. (9) There are now 5,100,000 homes for sale in the United States, which is an average of 102,000 per state. One of every six home owners in America is now facing potential foreclosure!
On September 6th, 2007, the Federal Reserve turned on the money pump and injected 31.25 billion dollars into the markets to keep them from drying up. (10) Then, on September 21st, 2007, the sheiks of the United Arab Emirates bought twenty percent of Nasdaq. (11) This is a huge percentage of that market to be bought by foreign interests. On September 22nd, 2007, the U.S. Federal Government suspended the sale of Treasury notes, because they cannot afford to pay the interest with the current debt ceiling. (12) In other words, as the saying goes, they are robbing Peter to pay Paul. The sad fact is that the United States of America is hopelessly bankrupt, and the truth of that fact is becoming increasingly obvious. We must remember that when the supply of money is increased, it diminishes the value of all existing money.
In recent days we have seen the Canadian dollar reach parity with the U.S. dollar. The U.S. dollar is continuing to slide dramatically as the Euro of the thirteen-nation European empire rises to overpower it. (13) I remember when the Euro first came out at 89 cents to the dollar. Now it has hit 1.44 to the dollar.
Another problem that exists is that Red China now holds 1.33 trillion dollars of U.S. debt, while combined foreign interests hold forty-four percent of all U.S. national debt. Red China has now been threatening to use its vast economic power to destroy the economy of America. Red China is calling its vast economic power nuclear economics. (14) We have also learned that Dow Chemical Company is planning to build new multi-billion dollar production facilities in Red China. (15) Many other American companies have done the same thing. It is not difficult to figure out that the massive shift of wealth from this country to various foreign countries is intentional and according to illuministic directives. The United States must be brought down to the point where it is completely interdependent with other nations and cannot survive on its own. This is essential in the satanic plan for one-world government and a new world order.
On September 15th, 2007, the London Times featured a story which shook the White House. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan openly declared that the prime motive for the war in Iraq was not terrorism, but oil. (16) Clearly, it is a war of economics. Simply stated, when the United States went off from the gold and silver standards, it had no backing for its dollar. Thus, the United States Government made a deal with OPEC, the oil producing nations. The United States would supply military protection and other incentives to certain OPEC nations, if OPEC would accept nothing but U.S. dollars for payment of oil. This went on for decades; and the nations of the world, including Russia, Red China, all of Europe, and elsewhere, were forced to use ever-inflating U.S. dollars or they couldn't buy OPEC oil. One evil man, whom we supported in all of his evil doings, turned on the United States and started accepting Euros as payment for oil. This man was the leader of the second largest oil producing country in the world. That man was Saddam Hussein of Iraq! If Saddam Hussein persisted and others in OPEC followed his lead, the rest of the world would no longer need American dollars to buy oil and the Euro and other major currencies would rise against the U.S. dollar.
Even though the United States destroyed Iraq, killed 665,000 civilians, and executed Saddam Hussein, the U.S. dollar is still suffering. In fact, I believe the U.S. dollar is cursed because it is blood money! We have now seen oil prices exceeding 82 dollars per barrel. (17) The former chairman of Royal Dutch Shell Oil Company, Lord Oxburgh, recently warned that the price of crude oil will rise to 150 dollars per barrel. (18) This will further cripple and disable America's already struggling and gasping economy.
Iran is also being set up as an enemy for the same reason Iraq was invaded by occidental powers, particularly the United States. On July 13th, 2007, Iran informed Japan that they do not want U.S. dollars in payment for oil. Iran is requesting that all payments be made with Japanese yen. (19)
The U.S. Government is now making a major change in the one-hundred dollar bill. A new security thread is going to be used involving microprinting with 650,000 tiny lenses for each one hundred dollar bill. The holographic effects of the new bill make it look eerie. The exact words of the Associated Press article are as follows: "The operation of the new security thread looks like something straight out of the Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry." (20) The new bill is said to have a magical appearance with its strange sense of imagery movement.
We must remember that our economy is spiritual and occult-driven. The very crest of the Illuminati itself is on the back of our one dollar bill in the form of a truncated pyramid with the light of Lucifer emanating from behind an all-seeing eye of the Egyptian god Horus. In fact, a lengthy book, Atlas Shrugged, was written about our conspiratorial economy. This book was written in 1957 by Ayn Rand, who was reportedly a mistress of Phillipe Rothschild and wrote the book at his behest. This book is still on the Amazon.com best seller list. It is over 1200 pages long and describes the inner workings of American and global economies in a very clandestine and esoteric way. This book is a real favorite of politicians. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan was a devoted disciple of Ayn Rand. Atlas Shrugged is actually the Illuminati blueprint in clever disguise. The primary character of the book is John Galt, who represents the ruling head of the Rothschild dynasty. Near the end of the book, a sign is given that is to indicate that the world is completely taken over for Lucifer. That sign is when the lights of New York City go out for the last time. When this happens, Galt uses his fingers to make a dollar sign in the air as a final benediction to the god of gold and silver. We must also note that every year 400,000 copies of this book are offered free to Advanced Placement high school programs. (21)
Conspiratorial Health Mismanagement!
What has happened to our country? We, as a nation, are polluted with sin, and every other kind of pollution has followed as a result of it. There was a time, not that long ago, when the sure sign that you were in a third-world country is that you would have to drink bottled water. Have you noticed how prevalent the use of bottled water is in America at this present time? Four billion gallons of water, bottled in plastic, are consumed in America every year. (22) Much of that is nothing more than filtered tap water, and there are reasonable questions about the safety of the plastic being used. Have you noticed that bottled water has expiration dates? I was told face to face by an United Nations' official that all expiration dates on food and water are placed and controlled, not by individual governments and their health agencies, but by the United Nations. I was also told that the purpose was not to ensure freshness but rather for the purpose of controlling allotments and allocations geographically.
We are a nation whose food and water supplies are contaminated with plastic, aluminum, Teflon, and numerous other toxins. We must also consider mercury and other residual poisons and the problem of microwave radiation. The American people are rushed, pressured, and poisoned in many ways, and it is all happening as planned by the one-world elitists. I stood in the Social Engineering Chamber of the United Nations in the presence of witnesses and was told by an arrogant U.N. official that they are actively involved in population reduction, and anyone who will not receive their directives, including immunizations, would not be able to receive their food. The powers of antichrist are rising.
Many other grotesque things are going on in the name of science. Scientists, such as professor Esmail Zenjani of the University of Nevada, have been injecting human cells into fetal animals. Dr. Zenjani has now produced sheep that have half human organs. The sheep have been declared to be eighty-five percent animal and fifteen percent human. (23) It appears that if Dr. Frankenstein was living today, he would win the Nobel Prize.
In Utrecht, Holland, Dr. Bernard Roelen and other veterinary scientists are working on growing meat in laboratories. They are growing pork by isolating muscle stem cells from pigs, which grow into muscle cells. Then they stimulate the cells to develop, give them nutrients, and exercise them with electric current to build bulk. This is meat that never lived as an animal. (24) When Dr. Roelen was asked if this would repulse people, he said, "There will be a demand for it. Much of what people already eat today is extensively processed, from the feed that animals consume to the conditions under which they are raised, and the preparation of meat after slaughter." (25) Is it any wonder that the population of America is so diseased? We have also learned that scientists have now bred cows that give skimmed milk through genetic engineering! (26) What's next?
These are trying times, and what would we do if we did not have the Lord to help us through them? We have heard the reports about poisoned products imported from Red China. In Panama, many thousands of cases of toothpaste containing a poison called diethylene glycol were discovered. (27) Why would the Red Chinese put antifreeze in toothpaste and send it to Western countries? Are the Red Chinese deliberately trying to poison people? Here in America, fake Colgate toothpaste with this same poison was found in four states. The tainted toothpaste can be identified as made in Red China, because it says on the package that it was made in South Africa. (28)
One common and annoying health problem in America is the large number of people that develop a chronic cough. Recently, factory workers that worked in processing microwave popcorn with artificial butter flavor were getting sick with chronic coughing. It was soon determined that the chemical used as artificial butter flavor was causing the problem. This chemical is diacetyl, and when this popcorn was tested in home microwaves, it was proven to give off enough vapors to cause lung disease. (29) If you have ever opened a bag of this steaming microwave popcorn and have been choked by the vapors, you now know why it happened.
Scientists have also developed a new drug called UO126, which deletes memories. Research on accident and rape victims is being done to help erase bad memories. (30) The problem is that if it can erase bad memories, it can erase any memories. This sounds like something the CIA would be interested in.
The Love Affair Between Witchcraft and False Christianity!
One of the sure signs of the last days is the unification of Christianity with obvious evil and the devices of Satan. I have in front of me a picture of three presidential candidates: Obama, Clinton, and Edwards. They are standing in front of a stained glass window with folded hands and inspired looks on their faces. (31) If you listen to what they say and consider their records, they are antichrist in every way! It is also interesting to note that homosexual Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson fully endorses Barack Obama. (32) Is Barack Obama a sodomite himself? Obama recently stated when asked about Edwards, "He's kind of good looking, in fact he's kind of cute." (33)
Everywhere we look, morality and faith in God is being attacked! The Starbucks coffee chain is still serving some of their products in cups with antichrist messages printed on them. One of the recent ones reads as follows: "Why in moments of crisis do we ask God for strength and help? As cognitive beings, why would we ask something that may well be a figment of our imagination for guidance? Why not search inside ourselves for the power to overcome? After all, we are strong enough to cause most of the catastrophes we need to endure." (34)
The many attacks against the Almighty Saviour are no doubt more than human rebellion. The powers of darkness are at work in many and varied forms. There is now a summer camp for young atheists, ages pre-teen to teen, called Camp Quest. Their motto is Beyond Belief. Their goal is to teach young children that there is no one out there to pray to. They also focus on what they call the beauty of evolution. (35)
At the Emmy Awards Show that was held recently, actress Kathy Griffin openly blasphemed the Lord Jesus in her acceptance speech. She said, "A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus." She went on to say: "_ _ _ _ it Jesus. This award is my god now." (36)
I recently heard a news story on a Madison, Wisconsin, radio station that the latest fad in the Israeli State is a full body massage done by a large snake under the supervision of a therapist. At the end of the massage, the recipient is given an apple!
More and more prisons have been given orders to purge all books, tapes, and newsletters on faith out of prison libraries. The New York Times article of September 10th, 2007, reads as follows: "Behind the walls of Federal prisons nation-wide, chaplains have been quietly carrying out a systematic purge of religious books and materials that were once available to prisoners in chapel libraries." The directive came from the Bureau of Prisons in an order to "clear the shelves of any books, tapes, CD's and videos that are not on the approved list." (37) We also know that prisons are making special allowances for inmates who are Wiccans to hold sabat and esbat meetings, using all of their ritual tools except for the athame', the ceremonial knife. Where is the outrage?
One thing that is not realized by many Christians is that there are many initiated witches on assignment, who are posing as born-again Christians for the purpose of infiltrating and destroying churches. Not only have churches almost everywhere lost their spirituality, but they have developed an affinity with witchcraft and even use many ancient symbols of the craft. The labyrinth is now being used by many churches, and it is now common to see people walking the maze trying to approach the center where they will be illuminated. (38) The Celtic Knot is now popular among Christians, even though it is a powerful symbol of witchcraft. It is even found on the covers of some of the newer Bibles. (39)
In the Church of England, the Rev. Jeffrey John recently stated the following: "Christian theology has taught the doctrine of penal substitution - that humans, alienated from God by their sins, and unable to save themselves, could only be forgiven by God sending Christ as a substitute to suffer and die in their place. In other words, Jesus took the rap and we got forgiven as long as we said we believed in him. This is repulsive as well as nonsensical. It makes God sound like a psychopath. If a human behaved like this, we'd say that they were a monster." (40)
In the Netherlands, Roman Catholic Bishop Tiny Muskens is instructing all Roman Catholics to call God "Allah." Bishop Muskens exact words were, "God doesn't mind what he is called. Someone like me has prayed to Allah yang maha kuasa for eight years...." (41) His reasoning for calling God "Allah" is to appease the Moslems.
Without a doubt, the spirit of blasphemy has risen up, and that is one of the last signs before the end of this present world. Revelation 13:1 warns of this as follows: "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy." Never has there been such a time as this, and quite obviously, it won't be long now until our Saviour appears! Are you ready for Judgment Day and subsequent eternity? You can call upon the Lord Jesus right now, and He will hear you. It really is much later than you think!
In closing, I once again want to express my sincerest thanks to all who support this endtime prophetic ministry. We are always ready to pray, and our intercessors gladly await your prayer requests. Each one receives individual attention. God bless you exceedingly! Grace and peace be multiplied unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Special Note: Judgment is falling upon southern California. Eleven days before Halloween, with the approaching full hunter's moon, an inferno began to engulf this sin-laden and occult-filled region. One-half million people have been evacuated as numerous fires have made Orange and San Diego counties a "hell on earth." The sky has turned red over the area, and 1,500 National Guard troops have been called out. I will cover this in more detail in the next Last Trumpet Newsletter, the Lord willing.
