Dark Mysteries of Earth's Last Days!
"And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many; he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true; wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days. And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king's business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it."Daniel 8:23-27
"And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand."Daniel 12:8-10
"And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."II Thessalonians 2:11-12
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will examine an amazing phenomenon that is prevalent throughout the world, and especially in the United States, during these last and final days of time. We are living in a strange time when almost no one knows what is really happening or why it is happening. It is as if there is an unobservable barrier between the vast majority of the people and an elite few, who impose their will on the masses of humanity. It should not be hard to believe that this is the case, for it is the only explanation as to why things are the way they are and why conditions never seem to depart from a conspiratorial pattern. This holds true no matter who occupies the high offices of worldly authority.
In the Bible verses above, we read of a strong delusion from God that would engulf the people of the world that have rejected truth. We are also told that the wicked will continue to due wickedly and that they will never understand. In fact, there is only one remnant of people who can sort out all of the confusion of the last days and clearly see what is truly happening. In Daniel 12:10, they are called the wise, and they are the true children of Almighty God.
The satanic ruling elite of this nation of the United States and the rest of the world depend heavily on the maintenance of ignorance of the people, who are also encouraged to express their disbelief and consternation regarding any notion of any conspiracy at all. That is why radio talk show hosts, who are all paid stooges of the Illuminati, laugh and scorn those who think evil operates in secrecy. In the first Scripture portion above, however, we read that an evil man will rise up in the latter days when the transgressors are come to the full. Quite obviously, the world is currently realigning for unification, and when that objective is achieved, someone is going to run it! Also remember that in the new age one-world system, diversity is encouraged as long as a common satanic thread runs through every diverse component of thought, religion, and ideology. True Christianity is the only thing that isn't allowed. Test that in any public (government) school!
The man who is to control the world for a little while is said to stand up, which means to seize power quickly. He will also have a fierce countenance and will understand dark sentences. The word sentences, in this case, means riddles. Thus, he wields his power by a perfect understanding of clandestine power and by the use of dark riddles. The evil world dictator will control the people by keeping them confused and guessing until they finally resign themselves to ignorance and fear as subservient stooges, who will never raise a question or think for themselves again. Truly, these days are upon us!
We will now look at our world and its current condition. I do offer this word of encouragement, however: You do not have to be in the realm of darkness and uncertainty. You are held there only by your sin and rebellion against the Almighty Saviour. If you stop right now and pour your heart out in prayer, God will hear you and lead you into the full obedience of the Gospel. You can be set free and walk in the light of God, where there is peace for the soul and a joyous hope for a glorious eternity very soon. It is later than you think!
One World Under Satan!
A prime example of the efforts to unify the world is the recent proposal made by presidential candidate John Edwards. Edwards was speaking at Pace University in New York City, where he proposed the expansion of a type of Department of Homeland Security to encompass the entire world. His proposal calls for the establishment of a totally new and innovative organization called the Counterterrorism and Intelligence Treaty Organization, or C.I.T.O. (1) This is to be a one-world, all-seeing eye organization, which will no doubt have unlimited surveillance power over all the people of the world. The constant threat of terror is being used to unify the world into a single brainwashed population unit.
Another example of population control in the new one-world dictatorship is the planned microchip implantation in all people. Unquestionably, we live in an electronic world, which is already cursed with cancer-causing stray current everywhere. On September 9th, 2007, the Associated Press reported that it has now been proven that implanted microchips induce malignant tumors in animals. This was also verified by Dr. Keith Johnson, a retired toxicological pathologist who leads microchip research at the Dow Chemical Company in Midland, Michigan. It is even more shocking when we consider that the research was conclusive regarding the cancerous tumors in 1996, well before the U.S. Government approved the chips for human implantation on January 10th, 2005. (2)
The reaction of the Food and Drug Administration is still a full endorsement for the use of the chip in humans, which allows the manufacturer, VeriChip, to continue its marketing plans. Obviously, VeriChip and the FDA are sharing the same bedroom on this one, and the FDA, the Federal governmental agency to which our health and well-being is supposed to be entrusted, is turning the trick for them. How heinously frightful is this situation? VeriChip plans to implant microchips in forty-five million Americans as soon as possible! (3) Countless animals already have them, and over two thousand Americans are implanted with them already. Certain doctors have used the words: "….they are to be widely implanted in people." (4) Here let it be known that it was former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson, who became President Bush's Secretary of Health and Human Services and thus was in charge of the FDA, that arranged for the approval of microchipping humans. Five months later, Thompson promptly resigned his post, and within five months he became a board member of VeriChip and Applied Digital Solutions and was rewarded heavily, including stock options. (5) I must also mention that I personally met Tommy Thompson at his first inauguration in Madison, Wisconsin. I remember him looking directly into my eyes and telling me he needed prayer. Tommy Thompson is a 32nd degree Scottish Rite Freemason, who has done his ritual work at the massive Masonic Temple on Wisconsin Street, just off from the Capitol Square. I was once kicked out of that building as a visitor at their open house for exposing the mysteries of the high degrees to low-level fellowcraft Masons.
When I think of the implanted microchips causing cancer, I am immediately reminded of Revelation 16:2, which reads as follows: "And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth, and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image." Noisome and grievous indicates that the sore is loathsome and will not heal. We also read in Isaiah, chapter one, of a sinful nation that is to be burned. It is also a nation that is to be afflicted with sores. Isaiah 1:6 reads as follows: "From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrefying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment." We know that God is speaking of a spiritual condition of a nation, but is He also speaking of individuals by the millions who have malignant tumors which have metastasized, all because they have committed the ultimate act of disobedience to God and received the mark of the beast?
Clearly, our world is unifying into large segments, and one of those segments that is being realigned right now is the North American Continent; including the United States, Mexico, and Canada. You would have to be blind to not see this happening! Unfortunately, spiritual blindness is the very condition of our day! On August 20th, 2007, President Bush met once again with the leaders of Canada and Mexico at Montebello, near Ottawa, Canada. There was something very strange going on as these three leaders met to exchange dark sentences. Their scheme is to unite the three nations of the North American continent, but they are releasing no real information to the constituents of those nations. (6) Ten days later, the Bush Administration opened up the highways in the United States to Mexican trucks, which can now freely roll up and down our highways carrying who-knows-what! (7) The very next day, Mexico's President, Felipe Calderon, issued a formal protest against any crackdown on illegal immigrants in the United States. (8) Calderon is no doubt a cauldron of trouble and is getting over-anxious about merging his nation with what is left of the United States.
It was also announced that Red China is going to install sensors along the I-35 NAFTA superhighway corridor in order to monitor its products as they are shipped by truck. All containers from China are to contain RFID, or radio frequency identification transmitters. Lockheed Martin tracking technology is being used in the project as well. (9) What they are not telling us is that the equipment being installed along the highway can also read the microchips implanted in humans, providing a continual checkpoint system. In Communist countries, we used to hear of the little booths along the roads at check points, and all cars were stopped and inspected. In the United States, we will have the same program except that it is to be electronic with no need for the little booths as the traffic rolls on. Big Brother will know where you are at all times. It is also interesting to note that Michael Chertoff recently made a statement regarding national identification cards. In a recent CNN report regarding the ID cards, Chertoff used the words, "Resistance is futile!" (10) Remember, the word Chertoff literally means son of the devil in the Russian language!
On September 7th, 2007, President Bush was in Sydney, Australia, at the Sydney Opera House for a meeting with APEC, which is an organization comprised of the twenty-one Pacific Rim nations. Our President, George Bush, also known as Mr. Embarrassment, proceeded to address the summit as OPEC, which is the oil producing cartel and an entirely different organization. Mr. Bush tried to correct his error by saying he confused the two names because Australian Prime Minister John Howard invited him to OPEC next year. That would be impossible, because neither Australia nor the United States are members. President Bush continued to dig himself deeper into the pit of error and incompetence when he referred to the Australian troops in Iraq as Austrian. (11) President George Bush is the first American President to become the laughingstock of the entire world!
My primary reason for bringing up the subject of President Bush and the APEC summit is because only a few days after the summit, massive earthquakes began to rock the entire Pacific Rim region. On September 12th, 2007, a powerful magnitude 8.4 earthquake hit near southern Sumatra. This was followed by numerous other quakes and aftershocks with magnitudes up to 7.4. Homes, shopping malls, and especially Moslem mosques were heavily damaged. Tall buildings as far as twelve hundred miles away swayed dramatically. Ten people were known to be dead, but the injuries were numerous. (12) It is quite obvious that Almighty God is not pleased with this region of high immorality and false religions. The Pacific Rim is also known as the Ring of Fire because of the many active volcanoes that form a concentric pattern. Judgment will soon hit so hard in that area that it would stagger the imagination.
In the Middle East, the State of Israel has announced that it is preparing for a major conflict with Syria. Syria has been firing upon Israeli war planes flying over Syria. (13) Meanwhile, on September 2nd, 2007, the London Times Newspaper featured a story stating that the Pentagon is planning a "three-day blitz" against 1,200 targets in Iran. (14) This three-day blitzkrieg, orchestrated by Herr Bushler, could easily catapult us into World War III, unless God would intervene. The entire Middle East is pulsating with potential to trigger the final World War. We have already invaded the land that was ancient Babylon. Is the land that was ancient Medo-Persia next? When will the Kings of the East begin to strike? In these perilous times, we truly need the Saviour!
On September 6th, 2007, BBC News reported that UK jets have been shadowing Russian bombers. Russia has been sending long-range bombers on long-distance patrols. The Norwegian Air Force also reported that they had to intercept eight Russian Tupolev Tu-95 Bear aircraft. (15) We also know that on September 12th, 2007, Reuters News Service reported that Russia had just successfully tested the world's most powerful vacuum bomb, which unleashes a destructive shockwave power of a massive nuclear blast. This bomb has been given the name father of all bombs. It is said to have no match in the world! The Russians said that this bomb is their answer to the U.S.-built Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb or MOAB.
The test area where the Russian bomb went off was completely destroyed as strong buildings were flattened and the ground was scorched from intense heat. Reporters said that the ground afterward looked like a lunar landscape. The small initial blast dispersed a main load of explosive material into a massive cloud, which ignited in the air. A pressure wave was generated along with a partial vacuum. The main destruction was inflicted by an ultrasonic shockwave with amazingly high temperatures. In a populated area, anything alive would instantly evaporate. (16) All of this is quite astounding when we consider the words of Zechariah 14:12 as follows: "And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth."
Are the people of the world safe from their own respective military forces? On August 8th, 2007, the Courier Mail Newspaper reported that Australian RAAF F/A-18 warplanes were locking in and targeting civilian automobiles with class four lasers. The government said it was a mistake and that the pilot forgot to turn the lasers off. The government also said, "Members of the public are being advised to seek medical advice if they are concerned that they may have been exposed." The class four lasers are the most powerful in use by the RAAF. (17) We must also note that President Bush has induced the Boeing Aircraft Company to install powerful lasers on commercial 747-400 aircraft as anti-missile devices. (18) These are amazing times when commercial passenger aircraft are being equipped with war devices and capabilities.
We have also learned from an Associated Press report dated September 6th, 2007, that nuclear warheads were flown across the United States after a B-52 bomber was mistakenly armed. Six nuclear warheads were in the skies over America for three hours at armed status. This was originally reported in the Military Times Newspaper. (19) The government said it was an error and that they are looking into it! We are living in a time when anything can happen anytime, and eventually, something will happen. God help us all!
The Proliferation of Perversion!
I am sometimes asked this question: how can we be sure these are the last days? The answer to that question could be quite involved, but to be concise, everything that the Bible said would happen during this unique time of the end is indeed happening. Even without reading the Scripture, simple logic and common sense would tell you that if society continues its current course, it would self-destruct in the not-to-distant future.
The Scriptures tell us in II Timothy 3:1-5 of these days as follows: "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."
Why should God bless America when this evil American society persistently offends Him and either ignores or scorns His mercy and grace? Recent reports indicate that a full thirty percent of adult Americans have an alcohol problem. (20) One in twelve adult workers in America, which is over ten million people, are using illicit drugs and alcohol to the extent that they need treatment. (21) It has also been reported that over twenty-five percent of American females between the ages of 14 and 59 are infected with the HPV virus. This is the sexually transmitted human wart virus, which causes most cases of cervical cancer. The Centers for Disease Control also reported that among the age group of 20 to 24, the percentage of those infected is 44.8 percent. (22) There is a heavy price to pay for disobeying and defying the Almighty. The Lord warned Israel what would happen to them if they rejected Him. We read of this in Deuteronomy 28:60-62 as follows: "Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee. Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the Lord bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed. And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of the Lord thy God."
For those who think this warning is for the ancient past only, consider the words of Revelation 22:18, which says, "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book." Thus, if you have ever wondered why there are so many and varied diseases, and many of them incurable; and if you wonder where they are coming from, you have your answer. Conditions have never been like they are now. If you are reading this, and have one or more of these diseases, there is hope. Repent and obey the Gospel. Use natural remedies and pray and walk closely with the Saviour. Miracles still happen. God's mercy is beyond comprehension; otherwise He would have destroyed this world long ago!
By now you may be thinking, are things really that bad? Are people really that sinful? One shocking problem is the Internet, which features a flood of filth from the very mouth of Satan. Hard core child abuse images, including child rape, now comprise twenty-nine percent of all the images investigated. The children involved are mostly under twelve. (23) On the other end of the age spectrum, there is so much sexually transmitted disease among senior citizens in New York City that the city is sponsoring AIDS education programs and handing out thousands of condoms at the senior centers and other places where the elderly congregate. The Staten Island Advance Newspaper reported that the big complaint among women in their eighties who were given condoms is that they wanted to be given a man to go with it! (24)
The New York City Health Department has also allocated 600,000 dollars to promote and supply the morning after pill, which destroys conception in the womb. This is being called an "emergency contraception." (25) The program zeros in on thousands of teenage girls who are being told that "this is plan B."
Another sure sign of judgment soon to come is the takeover of the world by sodomites or homosexuals. In the month of June 2007, major cities around the globe were the sites of massive "gay pride" parades and other programs to honor their cause of perverted sexual appetites. I have in front of me a photograph of the Gay Pride Parade that took place in Sao Paulo, Brazil, this past June. The wide street lined with skyscrapers is filled with a sea of humanity as far as the eye can see. This was also the case in scores of cities elsewhere. (26) Is this a sure sign of the end of the world? Nothing could be clearer regarding this fact than the very words of the Lord Jesus himself as found in Luke 17:28-30 as follows: "Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed."
Even our frontrunning Presidential candidates for 2008 advocate homosexuals and lesbians. MSNBC News stated, "Hillary Clinton has been eager to bask in the gay love." (27) Hillary Clinton has received forty-eight percent of her campaign contributions from "gays." (28) Hillary has also been holding campaign rallies at such places as the Abbey in West Hollywood, which is a notorious gay hangout. (29) On March 15th, 2007, the Ides of March, which is a day honoring witchcraft, Hillary appeared on Bloomberg News. Hillary clearly stated, "I do not think homosexuality is immoral….let's not be eliminating people because of who they are or who they love." (30)
On August 8th, 2007, TIME-CNN featured the story of how Dr. Billy Graham endorsed Hillary for President and was ready to ordain Bill Clinton as an evangelist. Dr. Graham's exact words were, "I told President Clinton, when he left the Presidency, he should become an evangelist, because he had all the gifts. I also told him he could let his wife run the country." (31) This was stated in all seriousness, even though Billy's son Franklin tried to pass it off as a joke. Even if it was a joke, and there was nothing to indicate that it was, such foolish jesting from a crusade pulpit is abominable and forbidden in Scripture.
Yes, most assuredly it is gross sin and rebellion against God that is causing our nation to crumble, and if there is no repentance, great will be the fall of it! A spiritual shroud of gross darkness has covered our land as millions of people pour into the country that have never known the principles upon which our nation was founded. Businesses continue to fail, loans are in default everywhere, the housing market is in destruct mode, prices of goods and services continue to rise dramatically, crude oil prices have reached eighty dollars per barrel, and the worst is yet to come.
As our U.S. dollar continues to slide against other major currencies of the world, our national debt has now passed the nine trillion dollar mark. As of September 13th, 2007, at 12:17:34 GMT, our national debt was exactly $9,017,934,140,665.62. (32) There is no way to correct this massive debt. In fact, this debt is now analogous to light years of measurement. How much is nine trillion? Light travels at an approximate speed of 186,000 miles per second, which means it travels around the world at the equator seven and one-half times per second. Try to imagine how far light would travel in a minute, hour, day, week, month, or year. In one year, light travels about six trillion miles. Our national debt is one and one-half that in dollars. Truly, that's an astronomical debt!
Distress in the Creation!
Almighty God does speak through his creation, and awesome things are happening everywhere. More stars continue to explode in space, producing colorful displays. The latest calculations now reveal that the planet Mars will be only 55 million miles from earth on December 24th, 2007, and will indeed appear twenty-one times larger than it did one year ago. In the realm of witchcraft and the occult, this would mean a horrible war is about to break out on earth. The planet Mars is even now appearing larger every night.
Mars, which is known as the "angry red planet" and ancient "god of war", is making a lot of spiritual waves in the world of astrology. Meanwhile, Red China is trying to prepare for the 2008 Olympics, which are to be hosted in that Communist country. The San Jose Mercury News reported that the government of China is "drawing on decades of Communist Party discipline in preparation for the Olympics." (33) The lighting of the cauldron, which signals the beginning of the games is to take place in Beijing at exactly 8:08 P.M., August 8, 2008. (34) In the astrology of witchcraft, the number eight is the number of the sign of the scorpion. It appears in the fifth month of the zodiac with five months left in our calendar year. In Revelation 9:10-11, we read of a strange army that rises up as follows: "And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon."
The Olympics are Greek in origin, and even in this present time, the Olympic torch is always lighted by the rays of the sun god while a priestess holds the torch on Mt. Olympus. The torch then is taken around the world and carried by many dignitaries before lighting the cauldron under the five rings of earth, wind, water, fire, and spirit. We must also note that the summer Olympics always takes place once every four years and always in a leap year to reconcile the calendar with the pagan sun god. In the United States, we also have our Presidential elections aligned with that same year. Here let it be noted that during the last week of August 2007 fires began to break out in southern Greece until half of the nation was on fire. Witnesses said, "It was like hell everywhere around the Olympic site." (35) In all of the recorded history of Greece, there has never been anything like this before. Without question we are in the last of the last days, and the signs of this time are everywhere. Eternity is just ahead, and you can be ready if you will seek the Saviour now!
In closing, I once again invite you to send your prayer requests to us, and we will give them individual and personal attention. I also extend my heartfelt thanks to all who support this ministry in so many ways. I pray that you will be blessed greatly with overcoming power from on High as we see the day approaching. Grace and peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.David J. Meyer
