Under the Dark Shadows of Antichrist!
"Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia: That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled."Isaiah 18:1-2
"And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon……And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."Revelation 13:11, 16-18
"The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!"Revelation 18:15-18
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will use the light of the Scripture, the Holy Word of Almighty God, to reveal the truth of the recent amazing events that are now happening in our nation and around the world. Without a doubt, this is the most difficult newsletter I have written in twenty-seven years of publication. It is a nearly impossible challenge to get all of this information on five pages.
The Lord awakened me at four o'clock this morning and gave me the above title and scriptures for this issue of the newsletter. He then flooded my mind with a revelation about the antichrist and his dark forces. We know that God told Moses in Deuteronomy 18:18 that He would raise up a prophet like unto Moses. In Acts 3:22-26, the Apostle Peter makes it clear that the Lord Jesus Christ was that prophet. Just as Moses led the children of Israel out of a land of sin, idolatry, bondage, and slavery; so Jesus did the same thing in a spiritual sense, and He is preparing for us a promised land. This makes Moses an Old Testament type of Christ, pointing to the true Saviour, Jesus Christ, who was to come. We also know from Bible prophecy that in the last days an Antichrist would rise up to enslave the entire world. He would use economic power and great deceptions to cause the people to worship him and his master, who is Satan himself. When we realize that Moses typified Christ, we must also know that the Antichrist would likewise be an opposite of Moses and therefore do the reverse of what Moses did. The Antichrist, as an anti-Moses type, would lead people into slavery, idolatry, and bondage!
As we remember the story of Joseph being sold into Egypt and how he gained favor with Pharaoh and saved Egypt from a great seven-year famine, we must also remember that the real purpose of God was to preserve his people Israel and to sustain them for a while in Egypt. Because all of the storehouses were government-owned and controlled, the people had to yield and give Pharaoh complete control of everything they had. The complete story is in Genesis, chapter 47. Pharaoh took all of their property, possessions, and money.
When Israel came into Egypt, God blessed them greatly during the lifetime of Joseph. Then quite suddenly, everything changed. Everything Israel had was seized upon and confiscated. Everything became the property of the state. The people of Israel became slaves under hard taskmasters. Finally, God raised up Moses, and through a series of many miracles and judgments upon Egypt, Moses led the people to freedom and to a walk with Almighty God, and they left the land of socialism and slavery. They left the land of baby killing, for the government had declared that babies be killed. It was the law!
We are now seeing the forces of antichrist at work to raise up a man who is the antitype of Moses to lead people into a situation of socialism, slavery, bondage, and idolatry such as never has been seen before. This man is also in favor of baby killing, and secretly holds to a religion that worships the so-called sun god and the moon goddess. Is the erstwhile great nation of the United States of America so far gone that it would elect such a man to its highest office? Is the United States to become a spiritual type of Egypt, a land under the dark overshadowing of the spiritual wings of Satan?
No matter what happens or how evil the times become, we know that the day of our Lord's return is drawing nigh. Are you ready to stand before the throne of the Almighty Saviour? The Lord Jesus is merciful and gracious to all who call upon Him in truth. Do it now while you are able, and He will be your close friend through all of this.
Global Economic Treachery!
On September 21st, 2008, the headline of the New York Post consisted of only two shocking words: "Almost Armageddon." The market as listed in the Dow-Jones report was only 500 trades away from reaching a 22 percent decline and an ultimate total collapse. The Federal Government, which is actually bankrupt itself, quickly infused $105 billion of liquidity into the market. Repercussions were immediately felt throughout the banking industry, and banks began to hoard cash in anticipation of a run of massive withdrawals. (1) Something big was happening and it was far from over. Three of the nation's largest investment banks had already folded. By October 9th, seven trillion dollars in shareholder value had been wiped out! (2) The nation's largest banks continued to fail in rapid succession. The FDIC seized the giant Washington Mutual Bank, which was subsequently bought by J.P. Morgan Chase at a bargain basement price. (3) The massive Wachovia Bank also failed and began a frantic search for a buyer. (4) What was happening?
Those who have been reading the Last Trumpet Newsletter will no doubt remember that in the May 2008 issue, I published information about the closed session secret meeting held by the U.S. Congress. I wrote that there would be an economic collapse in America in September 2008. Four months later it came to pass, right on schedule. However, it is far from over. President George W. Bush reacted by calling for a "bailout" of 700 billion dollars. (5) Here let it be noted that President Bush is the perfect example of a bureaucrat as defined by Webster's Dictionary as follows: "an official who works by fixed routine, without exercising intelligent judgment." (6) We should realize by now that our leaders perform like trained seals for their Illuminati masters!
The bailout plan would essentially buy the bad and uncollectible debts of the banks with taxpayer dollars. For years, the banks had written loans to customers who had no ability to repay the money. The bankers and their associates made vast fortunes in commissions, and the housing market became inflated. The banks showed massive receivables as assets, which soon became uncollectible bad debts. The "banksters" saw this problem coming and took it as far as they could and for everything it was worth. Executives paid themselves millions of dollars in bonuses while they destroyed the economy of the United States. These unconscionable thieves had a partner in crime, however, that they could always depend upon: President George W. Bush.
On September 28th, 2008, in the depth of the darkness of night, the U.S. House of "Repre-spend-atives" were in an emergency session to try to push through a treasonous buyout or bailout plan. It was only three pages in length. This event was timed perfect with the occult realm of witchcraft. The vote was taken at midnight during the first new moon after the witches' sabat of Mabon, which was kept on September 22nd, 2008. This new moon is known to witches as the Dark Mother. We know that we have witches and occultists in Congress, and many Congressional advisors are witches. They always reveal that fact in their patterns. The Dark Mother moon is a perfect example. There is an old saying in Wicca regarding this moon as follows: "As the moon waxes and wanes, and walks three nights in darkness, so as the Goddess once spent three nights in the kingdom of death….we seek her to release those things that we have hidden in the dark recesses of our mind and are afraid to face. The dark moon represents mystery: time for divination arts."
Some may remember the popular song by John Fogerty and Creedence Clearwater Revival entitled, "Bad Moon Rising." This indicates a new moon close to one of the eight sabats. There is another new moon drawing near on the 28th of October as Halloween, also known as Samhain, approaches.
Another thing that should be noted about that emergency session of Congress held on the night of the Dark Mother moon, is that on that very night, tropical storm Kyle reached hurricane strength and began to race up the Eastern seaboard of our country. It raced past Washington, D.C., and headed toward the witchcraft capital of Salem, Massachusetts, as if to point out the connection between those two cities. The storm then continued northward toward Maine. (7) Amazingly, the hurricane was named Kyle, which is a Gaelic word that means: "narrow woods, a place where witches gather."
The three-page bailout measure was so heinously treasonous that it did not pass! (8) The following Monday, September 29th, the Dow Jones industrial average fell 777 points in one day. This was an obvious sign from Almighty God as seven is His sacred number, and three sevens would be His very signature of judgment. Now the conspirators would have to find a way to get the measure passed as it was necessary to force socialism upon the American people. News media everywhere carried the story of how Treasury Secretary Henry Paulsen got down on his knees in front of the witch, Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, and begged her to do something. President Bush had his pen all clicked and ready to sign the treasonous document as soon as the House passed it. How would they accomplish their scheme? The proponents of the bill went to all of the opponents and asked them what they would like to add on to the original three page document. Soon every kind of pork barrel spending request was added on, and the original bill became what is known in politics as a "Christmas tree bill", because everyone can hang their own personal spending ornament on it. The three-page document swelled to 451 pages. (9) Those members of Congress who remained opposed to the bill were threatened with Martial Law, as was confirmed by C-Span television. Representative Michael Burgess, R-Texas, made the following statement: "I have been thrown out of more meetings in this Capital in the last 24 hours than I ever thought possible, as a duly elected representative of 825,000 citizens of north Texas…..Why don't you post the bailout bill on the internet for 24 hours instead of passing the largest piece of legislation in U.S. financial history in the dark of night?" He then said to Nancy Pelosi, "I understand we are under Martial Law as declared by the Speaker last night." (10) The bailout bill passed, and as predicted President Bush immediately signed it into law. (11)
The passage of the bailout bill accomplished nothing good at all and actually rewarded the corporate criminals that caused the problem in the first place. The insurance giant AIG was gasping for breath and facing certain collapse on September 15th, 2008. (12) Immediately after the bailout bill passed, the executives of AIG gathered at St. Regis Resort on Monarch Beach for an extravagant celebration. I have in front of me a copy of the actual invoice for this wild event, which will ultimately be paid by the taxpayers of America. AIG spent nearly a half million dollars, including $139,375.50 for rooms, $147,301.71 for banquets, $23,380.00 for spa service (massages, manicures, and other amenities), and various other charges. (13)
I also have a list in front of me that was published by Reuters News Service, and it reveals the breakdown on which financial institutions will receive the $700 billion and exactly how much of this amount each one will receive. The problem is that the total of the amounts allotted comes to 1.8 trillion dollars. (14) On October 10th, 2008, the London Daily Telegraph reported that the markets in the United States remained in turmoil despite the massive bailout. (15) The question that arises is what was accomplished by this bailout and what was its real intended purpose? The Washington Post newspaper answered that question on the day the bill was passed with the following headline story: "Power Shifts From New York to Washington D.C." (16) It was the Illuminati global conspirators in charge of our government opening the door to government ownership and control of private industry and enterprise, which is socialism! The Scotsman newspaper put it very well with their October 9th, 2008 headline as follows: "New World Order: Global cooperation, nationalization and state intervention - all in one day!" (17) The United States of America is now officially by definition a socialist state.
As things worsen, is the government expecting resistance by the people? I have in front of me a copy of the Army Times newspaper, published by the United States Army. The September 30th, 2008, edition reports, "Beginning October 1st, 2008, for twelve months, the 1st BCT (Brigade Combat Team) will be under day-to-day control of U.S. Army North, the Army service component of the Northern Command, as an on-call Federal response force for natural and man-made emergencies……the brigade may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control…..The brigade will be known for the next year as a Consequence Management Response Force, or CCMRF (pronounced 'sea smurf')." (18) Here let it be noted that there is an occult side to this sea smurf unit. A number of years ago there was a cartoon produced by the occult called the Smurfs. They were little blue dwarf-like characters with red hats. In witchcraft, blue is the color of divination, and red indicates both blood and lust. The Smurf patriarch was Papa Smurf, who would often consult with a higher power called "azawzel", which is a word taken from the Hebrew language to indicate the "goat." This present force of Sea Smurf would be an occult metaphor for the "forces of the goat that control the sea of humanity." In Revelation 17:15 we read as follows: "And he said unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues."
We know that the market crash was not exclusive to the United States, but is world-wide. On October 9th, 2008, the world financial chiefs were all heading for Washington, D.C., for crunch talks. (19) In England, the London Daily Telegraph featured a picture of Prime Minister Gordon Brown wearing a military uniform with a lot of red color in it, and the headline above the picture was the Prime Minister's declaration, "We're all socialists now, comrade." (20) Then, secret meetings were held by world financial leaders in the Arab-Moslem city of Dubai to discuss a worldwide bailout and a one-world money system. (21) A Moslem cleric made the following declaration: "Replace capitalism with an Islamic financial system." (22) Then the United Nations' chief, Ban Ki-moon, spoke up and declared the need for "global leadership", emphasizing the essentiality of one-world government! (23) That is what this is really all about, a new computer-controlled world money system administered by a one-world dictatorship. It is coming fast!
The current distress in the United States is a pressing issue. In the Chicago, Illinois, area, Cook County to be exact, the Sheriff announced that he will refuse to do any further evictions to put people out of their homes. (24) Retirement accounts, in many cases, are wiped out, and the Associated Press recently reported that retirement accounts have lost two trillion dollars! (25) Our current national debt has surpassed ten trillion dollars and is well on its way to eleven trillion, and that is before we add in the bailout bill. The number ten trillion is hard to picture. We know that only one billion 100 dollar bills would produce a stack 630 miles into space, which is nearly three times higher than the orbit of our space shuttle. One trillion of those 100 dollar bills would reach 630,000 miles into space. Our moon is only 238,000 miles from the earth. If our national debt of over ten trillion dollars were stacked up as $100 bills, it would produce 26 stacks from the earth to the moon! There is no way out of this one! Incidentally, the bailout bill has added over $17,000 of debt to every household in America. Furthermore, on October 8th, 2008, the massive national debt clock in New York City ran out of digits and will have to be redesigned. (26)
A New Pharaoh and his Slaves!
As previously mentioned, the ancient land of Egypt was a socialist society. Is the United States of America rapidly becoming a latter day socialist spiritual Egypt? Is the entire world going through a metamorphosis toward Marxist socialism and even Communism? Even though Communism is very much alive, why do we never hear that word anymore? The Scripture tells us of a strange merger in the last days. It is a spiritual merger of Sodom and Egypt. In Revelation, chapter 11, we read about the two witnesses of the Word and Spirit in God's people. The witnesses of God are cast down, and they lie dead in the streets for a short time, just before the return of the Lord. The entire world becomes one imperial city, and we read in Revelation 11:8 as follows: "And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified." The reason why we know this city is not a specific existing city is that the verse tells us Jesus was crucified there, and Jesus was not crucified in any city, but rather outside of Jerusalem in the world. To cement that fact, consider the words of Hebrews 13:12-14, as follows: "Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come." Thus, all the world becomes one under the antichrist rule over a spiritual city that is a merger of Sodom and Egypt, and the spirits of those two evil places set the stage for the new world society. It is a city and world that no true Christian could ever claim citizenship to.We are now seeing a world uniting under economic distress. At the same time we are hearing of wars and rumours of war. There is much distress of nations with perplexity, and Scripture is being fulfilled with remarkable precision. As Barack Obama is standing as a self-proclaimed anointed one, wanting to be the President of the United States, we see shades of antichrist in this modern-day Pharaoh. We also know that Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, clearly stated, "When Obama talks, the Messiah is absolutely speaking." (27) We also know like Pharaoh of Egypt, Obama is a radical baby killer to the extent that he believes that even if a baby survives an abortion attempt, the baby must be killed! (28) Obama also believes in and intends to enforce a law that all young women must register for the military draft, and that women must be available for combat positions. (29) Who is this man who arose from obscurity? What does he really believe? So little is known about him, and what is known is sick and awful. Millions of dollars of campaign money came to him from undisclosed sources overseas. (30) His plans and policies clearly indicate that many taxes will have to be raised. Of course, his running mate, Joe Biden, stated, "Paying higher taxes is a patriotic act." (31)
The Two Horns of Islam Rising!
In Revelation 13:11 we read as follows: "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spake as a dragon." What is this two-horned governing beast? Among the 6,666 verses of the Koran (Qur'an), the sacred book of Islam, are found the words Dhul-Qarnayn, which literally means He of the two horns, in verses 18:83 to 18:98. It tells the story of the two-horned one who will take the religion of Islam from the East to the people of the utmost West. It will then be determined by the two-horned one whether to show kindness to the people or to punish them, depending on whether or not they will accept Islam. (32) We also know that the great symbol of Islam is the crescent moon with two sharp horns. Has the two-horned beast risen up from the earth in the Western nations, including the United States? It is a religion that demands the death of all who will not convert to it. It is a religion of fierce cruelty that also has another symbol, the scimitar or curved sword. It is a religion of beheading, terrorism, and bloody torture. It is a religion that declares that "God has no son!" As we see this religion rise in power everywhere, we must also remember that there is a man in the United States, who was brought up from his youth in this religion, and he is now running like mad to be the next President of the United States. Inside of the deceptive breast of Barack Hussein Obama beats the heart of a Moslem. Is America that far gone that they would even consider him? Put his name next to that of Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Lincoln, Monroe, and so on, and something seems horribly wrong. It just doesn't fit!
Why has the Dubai government announced that it will build a new city at a cost of 95 billion dollars? (33) Why has a new Islamic legal center been built in Abu Dhabi, which is manned by forty-eight muftis who deliver fatwas, which are formal rulings on Islamic law? (34) It is like a world court of Islamic decisions. Why has a new facility been built in the desert city of Qatar, which is being called the Dream Beam? It is a massive facility surrounded by satellite dishes and state-of-the-art equipment, designed to manage all the news of the world. It is a communication center of propaganda located close to the center of Doha, the capital of the Emirates. (35)
Islam is rising to unthinkable power, and its signs are everywhere. It was recently discovered that the Fisher-Price Company's Cuddle'n Coo doll has an amazing message to bring to the little children of America. When the children pull the string on the cute little talking doll, it says, "Islam is the Light!" (36)
We also know that a black militant group has risen up in America, known as the Junior Fraternity Regiment, or the Obama Youth! They dress in military clothing, march in formation, and they have a power salute that they use while shouting "All for Obama", and other similar things. (37) Remember the Hitler Youth?
Judgment on Spiritual Sodom and Egypt!
The strange mixture of spiritual Sodom and Egypt is certainly becoming ever more obvious in the United States. The high court in the state of Connecticut recently ruled that homosexual and lesbian couples have a right to marry. (38) Watch for God's answer on this, as He clearly answered in other states on such abomination!
In our government (public) schools across the country, homosexuality and lesbianism is being touted as a good and wonderful thing. In Chicago, a new school is being planned specifically for "gay" students. The liaison officer on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender affairs, Bill Greaves, stated the following: "The school will make sure these people are not invisible in history. It is important that gay and lesbian historical figures are highlighted to give young gay people positive, successful role models." The school is to be called the "Pride Campus" and will accommodate approximately 600 students. (39)
In San Francisco, California, a lesbian teacher took her entire first grade class to her wedding, bussing them during school time to watch their teacher marry another woman. Each child was given a bag of rose petals, and each participated by scattering them in front of the two women. The little children were between the ages of six and seven. (40)
In the area of northern Israel, there have been a series of six earthquakes, and two of them were within one week in early October. It is interesting to note that ultra-Orthodox Schlomo Benizri stated that the earthquakes are because of the laws passed by the Knesset allowing homosexuality. He said the gays are at fault and are bringing on the earthquakes and that repentance would stop the quakes! (41)
It is true that the many abominations of our nation and the world are bringing the wrath of God in an ever-increasing crescendo as the end draws near. Recently, the infamous Discovery Channel featured a program of blasphemy against the Lord Jesus and his people. The program centered around an ancient bowl that was found by archaeologists, which dated back to the time of Christ. The inscription on the bowl reads as follows: "Dia Christou O Goistais", which is interpreted as "Christ the Magician." The story they have built around this is that Jesus Christ was nothing more than a skilled magician. They also stated that this bowl provides evidence that Christianity and paganism were intertwined in the ancient world. (42)
When people are this blasphemous, is it any wonder that the world is in the condition it is in? War is looming largely on the horizon as Red China is arming itself to the teeth. Massive Russian nuclear warships, after refueling in Libya, are heading for Venezuela for military exercises in the Caribbean. Wildfires continue to plague California, and numerous other examples of warnings from the Almighty continue constantly.
Scientists in California have admitted they are extremely puzzled about three neighboring volcanoes that all erupted at the same time. The scientific experts said it is nearly impossible for that to happen! (43) Strong earthquakes continue to shake the earth repeatedly. There have been nearly three hundred of them in the last thirty days. These include the 6.1 magnitude quake that shook Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands on October 11th, (44) and the 7.0 magnitude quake that was listed as strong and rattled New Zealand on September 29th. The Philippines were also rattled by a quake of 6.1 magnitude on September 27th. (45)
We also know that the giant particle collider built in Switzerland broke down after one usage. Scientists had to stop their program, designed to prove the earth was not created by God! (46)
In conclusion, I pray that the Almighty Saviour will help us all to reach out and call upon him. The time is at hand. We continue to invite you to send your prayer requests, and we will pray. Thanks to all of you who support this end time prophetic ministry. Grace and peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
