America – The True State of the Union!
“In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” –
“Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the Lord, neither consider the operation of his hands. Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.” –
“And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power: when he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.” –
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will once again use the Scripture to bring forth the reality of conditions as Almighty God sees them. We know that Barack Hussein Obama is planning to give his required State of the Union address soon. By the time you receive this newsletter, it may have already been given. Obama will have a lot to say about what he is doing, but I am a firm believer that there is a remnant of people living in this country that want to know the truth. What is the present truth and current reality regarding the condition of the United States of America? That truth and reality is only hidden from those who refuse to see it! The purpose of this issue of the Last Trumpet is to present the facts regarding what is now happening to us. These facts speak much louder than the words of Barack Obama. The Word of God also makes the present truth exceedingly clear. We are a nation and world that has already entered great tribulation, and that tribulation is intensifying every day. It will continue until all Scripture is fulfilled.
It is a sad fact that most people don’t comprehend or believe what they are seeing because they are always looking for something else. Reality never strikes them until the situation is beyond remedy. We are now at the point where the satanic antichrist conspiracy to reduce America to a state of interdependence has nearly achieved that objective. Dark spiritual clouds are on the horizon, and it is time for all of us to cast aside every distraction so we can watch and pray. The Almighty is coming to bring all things into judgment. We must all stand before Him. If you are reading this, there is still time for you to repent and seek the Lord Jesus Christ. He will receive you and all will be well for you both now and in eternity.
America – How Art Thou Fallen?
With the passing of the year 2009 and the entry to the year 2010, it seems some kind of portal was opened. Was that passage an end of an era and a beginning of a new one? Numerous powerful and influential people died in the year 2009, far too many to mention in this newsletter. Is this a sign that the new age, the new world order or Age of Aquarius, has now begun? In the year 2009, death came to former Senator Claiborne Pell of Rhode Island. Pell was an Illuminist who continually consulted with astrologers and had a paid psychic on his staff. He was the driving force behind the college Pell grants. The titular head of the Illuminati, Edmund de Rothschild, also died in 2009 at age 93. Another Illuminati hierarch died at age 93. He was Dr. Robert Strange McNamara, sometimes known as “Dr. Strangebob,” and the Pentagon chief that orchestrated the war in Vietnam. Senator Edward M. Kennedy, the illuministic leader of liberalism; and Walter Cronkite, American propaganda icon, both died in 2009. (1)
Many are the signs that we have passed into a new era, but most people are paying little attention to them. On December 20th, 2009, the London Daily Telegraph published a shocking story with an even more startling headline, which said, “There’ll be nowhere to run from the new world government.” The story tells of the emerging European unity into one nation, which will draw all nations into a global alliance. (2)
In America, the “big brother” Federal Government is gearing up for the 2010 census, which has been taken from the Commerce Department and placed solely in the hands of Rahm Emmanuel in the White House. The White House powers have stated that they believe 45 percent of the people of the United States will not return their census forms. This has prompted our government to spend $340 million on advertising alone in order to prompt people to turn in their census forms. This advertising program includes thirteen large vehicles with banners that will drive across the United States promoting the census. It also includes two ads, at a cost of 2.5 million dollars to be aired during the Super Bowl. (3) Nothing like this concerning the census has ever been done before. This census is more than just head counting; it is about building a data base of personal information.
America is changing rapidly. On December 31st, 2009, the Seattle Times featured a story about Obama’s plans for a major overhaul of our nation’s immigration policies. Here let it be noted that there are at least twelve million undocumented illegal aliens living in America, and Obama plans to grant all of them “instant citizenship.” (4) Apparently, laws mean nothing to a lawless leader.
The Scripture tells us that the spirit of antichrist and its human stooges will bring destruction in the name of peace. In Daniel 8:25 we read of this as follows: “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.” We must remember that Barack Obama was recently awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, having done nothing to even remotely deserve it. Even more outrageous and shocking was the “war speech” he gave when receiving the peace prize. Obama boasted that the United States is “the world’s sole military superpower.” Obama also boasted that he was the first head of state to receive the peace prize while presiding over two wars. America contains only 4 percent of the world’s population but it accounts for 41 percent of all military spending in the 192 nations of the entire world. In addition to the 1,445,000 active duty service members, there are also 1.2 million National Guard and reserve forces. The U.S. Defense Department also has 800,000 civilian employees. (5) How strange it is that Obama’s peace prize speech has been described as “an impassioned rationale for war.” (6)
One thing is certain: oppressive forces are rising up. It is also interesting to note that in order to indoctrinate children and young people the U.S. Army has spent $32.8 million developing an online video game as a recruitment tool. Strangely enough, those who play the game are deceived through a software gimmick, which causes American soldiers to fight and kill other American soldiers. (7)
We are living in a volatile time when almost anything can happen. According to the European Union Times, Russian military analysts have been reporting to Prime Minister Putin that U.S. President Barack Obama has ordered U.S. Air Force General Gene Renuart, leader of the Northern Command or USNORTHCOM, to “begin immediately” to increase his military forces to one million troops by January 30th, 2010. This is being done in anticipation of civil war within the United States of America. Intelligence reports are revealing that massive numbers of Americans are growing more and more restive and are fed up! (8)
We also know that incidents are being provided as an excuse to tighten security everywhere. The attempted bombing of the plane that landed in Detroit in December 2009 was one such manufactured incident. The director of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, issued a report that she is going to “fix the problem and tighten security.” (9) It is interesting that the mainstream news media is now referring to Janet Napolitano as “Big Sister.” Now the push is on for widespread use of the backscatter full-body x-ray devices. (10) If we are trying to tighten security, why did Napolitano appoint what she called “two devout Muslims” to high positions in the Department of Homeland Security? The new Assistant Secretary for Policy Development is Arif Alikhan, and the new National Executive Director of the ADC, or American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, under Homeland Security is Kareem Shora. (11) Janet Napolitano touted these two men as “devout Muslims.” Isn’t it strange that she couldn’t find two devout Christians?
As previously mentioned, Barack Obama is soon to give his State of the Union Address. At the time of this writing, no certain date has been selected. Traditionally, this address is given on the 20th day of January, which is a day honored by the occult world as the day when the sun enters the eleventh sign of the Zodiac, the sign of Aquarius. Barack Obama, however, wanted to give that speech on February 2nd, 2010, which just happens to be the witches’ high cross-quarter sabat of Imbolc. The word Imbolc is a Gaelic word meaning “in the belly,” and witches celebrate it as the first stirrings of the new spring in the womb of “Mother Earth.” When Obama selected this date, there was a great outcry because his speech would pre-empt the season premiere episode of a television program entitled “Lost.” It is interesting that Obama’s speech was going to override a program called LOST, a true picture of the state of the union. Obama decided he would choose another time for his address. (12)
While searching to find the date of the State of the Union address, I came across something I was not looking for. It was an official announcement from a government agency that I did not know existed. The Office of Force Readiness and Deployment on their official website is calling for medical workers specializing in cardiac problems. The heading says: “2010 State of the Union Address.” The complete announcement reads as follows: “Dear Commissioned Corps Officers of Tier III Roster D: The U.S. Capitol Police and the Office of the attending Physician, through the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), Office of Preparedness and Emergency Response, has asked the Office of Force Readiness and Deployment (OFRD) to roster five medical strike teams of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and registered nurses to provide care for Basic Life Support and Advanced Cardiac Life support incidents during the 2010 State of the Union Address in Washington, D.C. Capitol Area Provider Team #4 will be working this event but we will need to augment their team with additional clinical assets from Tier III Roster D. A date for the 2010 State of the Union Address has not been set yet, but the proposed dates are 19, 25 and 26 January 2010.” The announcement goes on to say that all of these heart specialists will be “in field uniform-Woodland Pattern, USPHS Ball Cap & T Shirt.” (13)
When I read this announcement, I immediately began to wonder what Obama will say that would cause so many potential heart attacks. I also thought of Luke 21:26, which reads as follows: “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.”
What is next on the agenda of the Illuminati conspirators? The Copenhagen Climate Summit was a complete flop and fiasco as the majority of nations walked out in protest! (14) Even though church bells rang worldwide in support of the Copenhagen meetings, there were not nearly as many bells ringing as hoped. (15)
We know that if the elitest conspirators are going to control people worldwide, it must be through electronics. On November 11th, 2009, Jim Edwards, formerly a Knight-Bagehot fellow at the Columbia University’s business and journalism schools, released a shocking report. The implantable microchip company, known as VeriChip, has acquired Steel Vault, (SVUL), a credit monitoring and anti-identity theft company. The new company will operate under a new name: PositiveID. PositiveID CEO Scott Silverman said, “PositiveID will be the first company of its kind to combine a successful identity security business with one of the world’s first personal health records through our Health Link business. PositiveID will address some of the most important issues affecting our society today with our identification tools and technologies for consumers and businesses.” In short, all of this means that when people are implanted with microchips, their health records, credit scores, and other personal information will be all linked together in one massive data base. (16) The mark of the Beast is just ahead!
An Economy in Tribulation!
The heartaches of our dying economy is no secret; all of us are feeling the devastating effects of it with the exception of the elitists who control it. On December 21st, 2009, the Associated Press featured a story entitled “Economy’s Tribulations Voted Top Story.” (17) When the mainstream press begins to use words like tribulation regarding the economy, we know we are now in the days of the final fulfillment of Bible prophecy. On January 10th, 2010, the London Daily Telegraph published a story with the following headline: “America Slides Deeper into Depression as Wall Street Revels.” The story went on to say that the U6 category of unemployment in America rose to 17.3 percent. This is because the American labor force decreased by 661,000 because so many Americans dropped out of the system. (18) Here let it be noted that all of the foreign news media are using the word depression when describing the American economy. Here in America, they still call it a recession as they whistle in the graveyard.
In the state of California, small business bankruptcies have risen by 81 percent because people just do not have money or purchasing ability. (19) In the state of Connecticut, there were so many unemployment claims filed in December 2009 that the main server was completely overwhelmed with a flood of jobless people seeking help. (20) While all of this is going on, the United States is spending countless billions of dollars on foreign wars. The amount that the Pentagon spends for war now exceeds that of all state governments combined. (21)
What happened to the vast wealth of the erstwhile great nation of the United States of America? Where did it go and who has it? The sad fact is that the Red Chinese have risen to a state of vast power, and they are expanding and increasing continually. We have now learned that PetroChina has won approval to acquire vast oil fields in Alberta, Canada, for 1.8 billion dollars. (22) We have also learned that the top five most powerful banks in the world do not include any U.S. banks. Four of these super banks are in Red China, and one is in Brazil. (23) Red China also replaced the United States as the world’s number one automobile market as sales in that country jumped by 46 percent. This ended more than a century of American dominance dating back to the time of the Model T Ford. (24) Red China is now also the largest exporter in the world with exports of goods worth 1.2 trillion dollars for 2009. (25) Sadly, the United States has become totally dependant on Red Chinese products.
The U.S. dollar is marked for death. On December 29th, 2009, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published an article accompanied by a large image of a one hundred dollar bill. Instead of the usual image of Benjamin Franklin, there was an image of a large owl on the bill. (26) The inference was to use wisdom when spending money. There is, however, an occult side to this. The U.S. one dollar bill has always had an image of an owl on it. A tiny owl appears on the obverse side of the dollar in the upper right corner of the note. It is located just to the upper left of the numeral “1.” The owl has always been the symbol of moon worship as people in ancient times would gather under the groves of oak trees, and owls would join them. Witches still do this in our time. We also know that the highest Illuminists gather at a place called the Bohemian Grove and stand in front of a large image of an owl while dressed in long robes. The owl is known in the occult as “Lucifer’s messenger.” The word Wicca means “wise ones,” and Wiccans use the owl as a symbol of their craft. We also know that in the Harry Potter books and movies, the owl was the messenger. To this day, a gathering of owls is called a parliament. I have watched for years, and I know that the power of witchcraft and occultism rises with the powers of Antichrist to prepare the people to accept the son of perdition as the false son of God. The rising use of the owl image is a sign of this!
Oppressive Health Care
The Senate version of the health care bill was passed by a vote of 60-39. I predicted this on a worldwide radio program. I stated that it would come to a vote during the time of the witches’ sabat of Yule between December 21st and December 24th, 2009. On the morning of December 24th, the day before “Christmas,” the Senators gathered in their chamber, suitcases in hand, anxious to head to the airport to go home for the holiday. The vote on this massive bill was rushed and railroaded through quickly. As the votes were being called for, Senator Harry Reid, the primary proponent and driving force behind the bill, stood to his feet and voted “nay!” When the chamber was filled with laughter, he quickly changed his vote to “aye.” (27) In truth, the bill did not pass, but Senator Reid was allowed to change his vote. The Senator said he was tired and didn’t realize what he was doing, but it tells me that God is in charge and this thing is not over yet!
The corruption surrounding this foul health care bill rivals anything found in the Chicago underworld. That should not surprise us as the Chicago underworld is largely the spiritual habitat of Barack Obama. The health care bill was headed for failure at one point in time because Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska wanted restrictions on abortion in the bill. (28) Suddenly, Senator Nelson changed his mind after being given various “benefits” and countless millions of dollars for the state of Nebraska. (29) Ben Nelson received his “thirty pieces of silver,” and betrayed his home state and his country. The element of secrecy prevailed as underhanded deception surrounded the passage of this health care bill. On December 23rd, 2009, the Wall Street Journal predicted that in the final reconciliation of the House and Senate versions of the bill, there would be a complete lack of transparency. (30) It would be done behind closed doors in direct violation to normal procedure and in direct conflict with Obama’s many promises of transparency and no secrets. But what are promises to such a charlatan? This prediction is coming to pass. An ABC News report on January 13th, 2009, revealed that Barack Obama was calling together thirteen Democratic leaders on the 13th of January to meet at the White House regarding the health care bill. This panel of thirteen are to do the job of finalizing the bill for Obama’s signature. (31) This thing has witchcraft and occultism written all over it. To add insult to injury, Obama has also given the OK to tax other health insurances that are not government run! (32) Obama has also given the job of insurance enforcement to the Internal Revenue Service, or IRS. The legislation would require most Americans to have health insurance and to prove it on their federal tax returns. Those who don’t will pay a penalty to the IRS. (33) Is this still America?
Spirits of Perversion and Blasphemy!
The year of 2009 came to an end, and the New Year of 2010 began under a blue moon. A blue moon is a second full moon within one calendar month. It is incredibly rare, however, for it to occur on a New Year’s Eve. In the realm of witchcraft, it is believed that this blue moon would triple the occult power of spells cast under it. It would also intensify horoscope readings and the power of the zodiac for the entire year, according to witchcraft doctrine. Already, it seems like all hell is breaking loose. At the end of December, a Danish newspaper declared the following: “Obama is, of course, greater than Jesus… He comes from humble beginnings and defends the weak and vulnerable, because he can identify himself with their conditions….And no we are not thinking of Jesus Christ, whose birthday has just been celebrated – but rather the President of the United States Barack Hussein Obama.” The editorial also noted the following: “The idea was naturally that the comparison between Jesus and Obama would be made. If such a comparison were to be made, it would, of course, inevitably be to Obama’s advantage.” This article appeared in the Danish newspaper Politiken. (34) We are indeed living in that strange time of the end when spirits of blasphemy have risen up to insult the Most High God. He will not put up with it much longer! Soon He will come with swift judgment against the ungodly.
The spirits of Sodom are rising up with the spirits of blasphemy to curse our country. God does not change, and He is not going to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah. The same wrath will fall upon the spiritually blind people of our nation, who are burning with lust as they weary themselves to find the door. On December 31st, Barack Obama appointed a woman to be Senior Technical Advisor to the Department of Commerce. The problem is that this “woman” was a man who now calls himself Amanda Simpson. This was the first transgender person appointed to a high-level office in America. With it came the statement that there is hope that hundreds more transgender people will be hired! (35)
In Texas, an openly homosexual was elected as mayor of Houston. The new mayor, Annise Parker, is a flaming lesbian, and she was preferred by the people as she won the election by 11,000 votes. (36) Houston is an exceedingly wicked city in many ways, and soon it will be the home of a new six-story facility known as an abortion super center. The organization Planned Parenthood is renovating a former bank, shaped like a giant cash register, into a 78,000 square foot slaughter house of human sacrifice. There will also be a special surgical wing designated as specializing in late-term abortion. (37) We know there was a great slaughter of babies at the time of our Saviour’s first coming when Herod ordered it done. Now there is a great slaughter of the innocents again, and it is a sure sign of our Saviour’s second coming.
It stands without question that we live in a warped and perverted society. According to NBC Bay Area News, the California legislature is moving forward to legalize marijuana (pot), for all uses, not just medical. (38) The new movie “Avatar” has also taken our country into a hellish state of mind. It was recently reported on CNN that this blockbuster hit movie has been altering the state of consciousness in many people. Fans have stated that they have been suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts after watching the movie, because they long to enjoy the beauty of the alien world Pandora. (39) I have no doubt that every major event and project happening at this time is designed to brainwash and condition, as well as re-educate the masses of people to accept an antichrist one-world, new age of Aquarius dictator.
The Creation in Distress!
The Almighty does speak through His creation, and it is He, not “Mother Nature,” that is in charge. Conspiratorial men tried to convince us that global warming would soon destroy us. God responded by sending extreme cold, snow, ice, and a wintry blast of weather that shook the entire globe. On January 5th, 2010, the London Times featured the following headline: “Arctic Freeze and Snow Wreak Havoc Across the Planet.” The report stated that all around the world, record cold and snow were causing worldwide trouble in China, over Russia to Western Europe, and across the U.S. plains. (40) Even in Nice, southeastern France, there was snow on the beaches of the French Riviera. (41) In America, single storms that covered the entire North American continent from north to south brought a thick and deep shroud of severest winter upon the land. (42)
Other disasters began to strike around the world. In the Philippines, the Mount Mayon volcano has been threatening the many thousands of people that live near the 8,070 foot mountain and forcing evacuation. Lava fountains have been reaching heights of 1,500 feet, and 20 columns of ash over 1 ½ mile high have been observed. The volcano is also shooting 6,000 tons of sulfur dioxide into the air daily. Scientists are waiting for a massive explosion that could happen at any time. (43)
In San Francisco, California, something very peculiar happened on December 30th, 2009. In the wharf area at Pier 39, almost all the 1,500 sea lions disappeared. I personally remember seeing them when I visited that city. They had been there for countless years and suddenly left. (44) I remember reading that before the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, which devastated the city, all of the animals left shortly before it happened. I read about the sea lions on January 9th, and immediately heard a voice inside me saying, “There is going to be an earthquake.” Only minutes later it happened. A powerful 6.5 magnitude quake struck off the coast of California, causing a lot of minor damage and cutting power to thousands of people, particularly to those in northern California. The effects were felt as far south as central California and as far north as central Oregon. (45) And surely, there is a much larger one coming! Then on January 12th, 2010, a massive and devastating quake hit the little nation of Haiti. The National Palace, UN Headquarters, hospitals, and thousands of other buildings collapsed, and countless thousands of people are known to be crushed in the rubble. The quake was a magnitude 7.0 and struck within miles of the capital city, Port-Au-Prince. (46) Haiti is a land filled with black magic in the form of voodoo and Santeria, including blood sacrifices, which are very common. God is speaking from heaven and soon His voice will become even louder.
In conclusion, I urge everyone to pray every day and yield your life completely to the Lord Jesus Christ. I also want to thank all of you who support this end time prophetic ministry. I pray you are blessed now and in eternity. Please remember that your prayer requests are always welcomed here, and our teams of intercessors will give each one personal attention. Grace and peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Soon we will rejoice at His appearing.
