Accelerated Illuminism And The Shortness Of Time!

"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time."

Revelation 12:11-12

"For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days."

Mark 13:19-20

"Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: For He will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth."

Romans 9:27-28

In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will once again consider the amazing events that are unfolding all around us in the sure and true light of God's Word. As we do this, we will take special note of the rapid acceleration of the events that are fulfilling Bible prophecy. Without exception, everyday is a new adventure as those who have eyes to see behold the activities of the Illuminati Masterminds of the Great Conspiracy to enthrone Satan as the Antichrist god of this world. There is more of a sense of urgency now; a sensation of speed as the end of this present age draws nearer. The above Scripture verses make that fact very clear about the last days, and the discerning elect remnant understand that this is happening for two reasons. We have been warned that in the last days Satan would come down to this earth with great wrath or a hot and burning, hellish anger and torrents of infernal rage, because he knows that his time is short. The current events of our world indicate that this is indeed the case. When Lucifer was cast out of heaven and became Satan, he was cast into the realm of time and his days are numbered.

The other reason for the sensation of speed regarding the events that are unfolding before our very eyes is that God promised to shorten the days. Thus we are experiencing the mad rush of Satan's hurried activity and the shortening of the remaining days by the Almighty, and both are moving toward each other and the final spiritual cataclysm, which will result in the end of this present world and the great day of judgement. True Christians everywhere must respond to this end-time urgency by finding their place in the will of God and by becoming active in continual prayer and spiritual warfare. The time to get right with your Saviour and Heavenly Father is now!

Willing Slaves In An Oppressed Land!

On Friday, November 8, 2002, newspapers featured the headline: "Bush Moves Homeland Security To Top Of Agenda." The President is doing nothing short of demanding that the bill establishing the Department of Homeland Security be passed in November. He is demanding swiftness, speed, and acceleration concerning this matter! November is a sacred month in the Aquarian new age scheme, because it is the 11th month in the Gregorian lunasolar calendar, which is in common use; but it is also the 9th month in the ancient Julian calendar, which brings the numbers 9 and 11 together in one time frame. The Julian calendar, which is favored by the witches, has February as the last month of the year, while the Gregorian calendar has December as the last month. The names give it away, however. The prefix "dec" on December means ten just as the prefix "oct" on October means eight. The spiritual bridge between these two calendars is very significant in witchcraft.

On November 7, 2002, President George Bush held a news conference, which was said to be jovial. (1) That word "jovial" is also of interest and pertinent to the occasion, because it is derived from the name of the Roman god Jove or Jupiter, which was another manifestation of Satan. During the news conference the President was heard to say in a sing-song tone, "George Bush won, George Bush won." (2) He then went on to demand that the Homeland Security Department be established by the current lame duck Congress. Here let it be noted that this Department of Homeland Security will literally destroy what is left of privacy in America in the name of protection against terrorism. Orchestrated terrorism has provided the excuse to demand that we be corralled in a panopticon of total observation in the name of "peace and safety."

Recently, an article by the well-known William Safire appeared in the New York Times newspaper. The article was entitled "You Are A Suspect." The article opens with the words, "If the Homeland Security Act is not amended before passage, here is what will happen to you." The article goes on to explain that the giant department, which merges 22 departments into one, will establish what the Defense Department calls "a virtual centralized grand database." Every American will have a dossier or complete profile containing records of every purchase with a credit card, every medical prescription, every magazine subscription, all web sites visited, all e-mail sent and received, all academic grades, every bank deposit, every trip you book, and every event you attend. In addition to the above, your personal file will include passport applications, driver's license, bridge toll records, judicial and divorce records, complaints from nosy neighbors, and any other activities that can be monitored. The new department calls this "Total Information Awareness." (3)

Here let it be noted that while Tom Ridge is President Bush's choice to head the Department of Homeland Security, the spying system will be run by John Poindexter. Poindexter is a brilliant man, who graduated first in his class at the U.S. Naval Academy and later became an Admiral and earned a doctorate in physics. He became former President Reagan's security advisor. Poindexter was the man in charge of selling missiles and high-tech weapons to Iran. Poindexter was convicted by a jury in 1990 on five felony counts of misleading Congress and making false statements, but an appeals court overturned the verdict because Congress had given him immunity for his testimony. (4) This felon of five counts is the choice of President Bush to head the "Information Awareness Office" of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. William Safire refers to Admiral Doctor Poindexter as "A ring-knocking master of deceit." (5) A ring knocker refers, of course, to a member of a secret society, such as the Freemasons, Skull and Bones, or others of that ilk. Poindexter has now been given 200 million dollars to create computer dossiers on 300 million Americans. (6) I must say regarding all of this that people who hear this information and just don't care are the very people responsible for allowing this to happen to our country. Who will rise up? Who will cry out? Will you do nothing for the sake of your children, who are being thrust into an Orwellian world? I understand that the Lord will take care of this with flaming fire when He comes again but we are to occupy until he comes!

Spying of U.S. citizens is already in full force. The space shuttle Atlantis recently made another 11-day journey to the 13-story international space station (7), which is watching us from space and will coordinate the hundreds of satellites orbiting the earth. The State of Michigan announced that random traffic stops began on November 12. Cars will be stopped at random and searched for signs of terrorism and other contraband. (8) In a computerized world, micro-spying has become possible, and the internet has allowed Satanic beast intelligence to rule people's lives. In that world-wide web of the internet, we find the number sacred to witchcraft running the whole operation, for the entire internet is run by exactly 13 servers that manage all of the electronic traffic world-wide. (9) It may be interesting to note that on October 22, 2002, something attacked the entire worldwide web and shut down 9 of the big servers. (10) It was 9 days before the witches' high cross-quarter sabat of Halloween. The Almighty is able to shut down the entire cyber world in a split second of time, and it should not surprise us when he pours out His Divine wrath on this electronic den of filth and antichrist activity. In Isaiah 28:21-22 we read as follows: "For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act. Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord God of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth."

War And Rumors Of War!

It is just as our Lord Jesus Christ warned us; we are living in a time of wars and rumors of wars. The threat of terrorism is a bomb that the media drops on us every day, and there is nervousness and edginess that keeps people in a constant state of fear. In Isaiah 28:19 we read of this time as it says, "From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report."

On the 11th day of October 2002, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to empower President Bush to attack Iraq. (11) President Bush stated that he also expected the Senate to vote in his favor, but it became obvious that he could take no chances. There was Democratic opposition to the war in the Senate, and the balance of power would have to be shifted. There was one senator in particular that was giving Bush problems. He was a powerful, outspoken, and active senator from Minnesota named Paul Wellstone. If Wellstone were out of the way, it would shift the entire power structure of the Senate in Bush's favor. Then it happened, 11 days before the election, the Beech King Air A-11 plane with pilot and co-pilot and Senator Wellstone and family members crashed at Eveleth, Minnesota. Everything had been fine, and there was no sign of trouble when suddenly the plane went down at a 30-degree angle and crashed into trees. It was an 11-passenger plane and went down 11 days before the election. (12) It happened on the 11th day from the day we arrived in Eveleth, Minnesota, to hold a Last Trumpet Ministries seminar. (Events seem to follow us as we also held a seminar in Bellingham, Washington, at the beginning of October 2002, and shortly after we left, the Washington, D.C. snipers left from Bellingham, Washington, to do their heinous killing.) Wellstone's sudden death was all too convenient for the Bush Administration, and Wellstone supporters immediately began to ask, "Who killed Senator Wellstone?" President Bush had no intention of attending the memorial service for Wellstone but planned to send Vice President Cheney. When the family heard of Cheney coming, they ordered him to stay away! (13) 

After the memorial service for Senator Wellstone, who was the key man who so strongly opposed President Bush and his cry for war, President Bush made 13 campaign stops before election day. As predicted and as conspiratorially engineered, the Bush Administration gained sweeping victories in the presence of a stunned Democratic party. Then, on November 8, 2002, the United Nations fell completely in line with Bush's war ultimatum. (14) President Bush, a member of the secret order of the Skull and Bones, seems to be getting a green light everywhere as he proceeds with his plan for world war and a new world order.

We have now learned that tensions are rising because it has been revealed by Ukrainian Minister, Petro Symonenko, that 200 powerful missiles with nuclear warheads are missing from the Ukrainian-Russian arsenal. There whereabouts are completely unaccounted for. (15) How do you misplace or lose 200 missiles? These are days of strange, conspiratorial intrigue. I have in front of me a picture of President George Bush with two U.S. Military officers standing in South Korea. President Bush has a very intense and serious look on his face as he looks through binoculars and examines the 38th parallel or dividing line between North and South Korea. The problem is that both lens caps are on the binoculars, and he cannot be seeing a thing! (16) Is the President also blind to the fact that COSCO, the China Ocean Shipping Company, now has 13 ports in our country on the West, East, and South coasts of our country, or is it complicity? Our nation is in a thousand dangers, and yet people live in a state of denial and disbelief. We have been seized upon and taken over by antichrist forces, and only God can help us! 

On October 13, 2002, the Melbourne Herald Sun newspaper from Australia revealed that the United States of America tested nerve gas on its own citizens in four states. In the 1960's and 1970's the nerve gases sarin and VX were released in Alaska, Hawaii, Maryland, and Florida according to declassified Pentagon documents. (17) There were three test projects, which were named as follows: "Devil Hole I", used to assess how sarin gas in artillery shells and rockets would disperse; "Devil Hole II", which tested how nerve agent VX behaved when dispersed with artillery shells; and "Big Tom", which sprayed bacteria over the Hawaiian Island of Oahu. (18) It was sarin gas that was used on the Tokyo subway by a terrorist group in 1995 and was most recently used by the Russian government on its own people, injuring and killing an entire theater full of people. Sarin gas causes a runny nose, watery eyes and breathing difficulties, followed by vision problems, confusion, a coma and death. The gas "VX" causes vomiting and violent fits before death, all within about 15 minutes. It is one of the deadliest nerve agents known and is persistent in the environment, because it is a sticky liquid that evaporates slowly. (19) The question that now remains is has our government reformed, or do they continue to spray our skies with agents designed to produce upper respiratory illness, asthma, and pneumonia? Why all of the massive and unusual chem trails in the sky forming every kind of unlikely angle and design? Why the epidemic of asthma and a 500 percent increase in pneumonia? Is it to kill off the weak, sickly, and elderly? Do we not have the right to ask the questions based on past admissions? Is it not time to call upon the Almighty Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, to begin to work miracles and come to our defense? He is our only help, and yet the majority of so-called "Christians" seem to have never had their blind-soul eyes opened. If we neglect true salvation and reject the help of the Almighty, then we must remember well the warning of Amos 7:17, which applies to our nation and current condition as follows: "Therefore thus saith the Lord; Thy wife shall be an harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy land shall be divided by line; and thou shalt die in a polluted land: and Israel shall surely go into captivity forth of his land." Only God can get us through this one, and I must say that I am amazed that so many cannot see the urgency of this hour.

Spiritual Warfare At The Tomb Of The Skull And Bones!

On October 27, 2002, I and a prayer team from Last Trumpet Ministries traveled from Wisconsin eastward to Salem, Massachusetts, then on to New Haven, Connecticut, and finally New York City, where we held a seminar. Everything that happened would be too much to tell in one newsletter, but I can say that I am nothing short of amazed at how the Almighty helped us. We battled the witches of Salem in prayer on October 30th, and the city of Salem was infested with thousands of witches. Huge clouds of smudge smoke billowed into the air as witches tried to spiritually cleanse the air and make way for the spirits to cross the astral plane. I questioned a couple of prominent witches who ran a large occult store, and before it was over, the male witch or wizard was so upset with me that he was cursing me in the enochian or witch language. I had been asking about high-level politicians and Hollywood personalities. Regarding the politicians, one witch told me that I would never get the politicians to admit that they are witches, because they fear it would damage their careers. We know that our warfare was successful, and we are now waiting to see what happens.

On October 31, 2002, we traveled to New Haven, Connecticut. I had not planned to do this, but the Lord indicated to me that I must stop there and go to Yale University to pray at the Tomb of the Skull and Bones. We did not know where to begin to look for this clandestine headquarters of this powerful secret society, which Yale University claims does not exist. We found Yale University, and a parking place was miraculously found. After walking to a street corner, and while waiting to cross, I saw three young people behind me. I asked a young man if he was a Yale student. He said, "Yes." I told him I was a researcher and asked if he could tell me how to find the tomb of the Skull and Bones. His answer surprised me. He said, "Sure, you go down two blocks, turn right, go through the large stone arch, and look to the left for an old gray-brown building that has no windows." Sure enough, we found it. I approached it prayerfully and began to make a thorough inspection of this occult tomb and headquarters for the powerful secret society to which the President, his father, and grandfather all belonged. I took many pictures, and I noticed that all of the doors in this building were chained shut with heavy logging chains and padlocks. The front entrance was an exception. The two large doors were secured with large hasps and padlocks and a Diebold safe lock. I happen to be a master locksmith and worked for the State of Wisconsin for ten years in that capacity and as a system designer and security consultant before leaving all of that to work for the Lord full time. I studied the security system well, and one of the hasps had the number 322 on it. Here let it be noted that the number 322 appears on the official letterhead of the Order of the Skull and Bones and is placed directly under the skull and crossbones of that letterhead. The number 322 stands for the number of active members at any given time. Every year fifteen new member-designates are tapped and invited to join. I have a 1917 roster, which lists Prescott Sheldon Bush as a member. His son, former President of the United States, George Herbert Walker Bush, was also a member as is current President George W. Bush.

After looking the building over, we stood at the front door and prayed. As I prayed, I lifted up my hands and rebuked the powers of darkness, the rituals, incantations, psychic prayers, and every form of evil that proceeds out of that building. When we were finally through praying, I looked up, and there were two strange- looking men standing there. One was in his late fifties and the other was much younger. The older man, speaking with a Russian accent, said to me, "Why do you pray in front of the Tomb of the Skull and Bones?" I told him it is because of all of the evil that comes out of this place. He then said, "You know you are being watched, and everything that you are saying is being recorded." I told him that I figured on that. I asked him what his name was and he ignored my question. I asked him where he was from, and he said, "If I told you where I was from, you wouldn't like me." Finally he said, "Call me Mike." We gave him one of my business cards, and I told him that I am going to write about the Skull and Bones in my newsletter, which has worldwide circulation. At this, the man became very agitated and looked me in the eyes and said, "You are not going to write about the Skull and Bones!" I told him that I was going to write about it! Once again he said, "You are not going to write about the Skull and Bones! You do not realize the power that you are dealing with here; a lot of things could happen to you! You are not going to write about the Skull and Bones!" It became obvious to me that these two men had been watching us and were probably guardians of the Skull and Bones' Tomb. I went away feeling exhilarated and victorious in the Spirit of God. For the benefit of anyone who doesn't think this place exists, I can assure you that it does, for I have been there and have been threatened by them to not write about them. It did not seem to bother them much that we were there, looking around, and taking pictures. When we prayed at their front door is when all hell broke loose.

There were many other peculiarities about the Skull and Bones Tomb. The back door had a playing card, the nine of spades taped to it. The bonesmen communicate through playing cards and tarot cards. It made me think of the Washington snipers and how they used tarot cards, which triggered their programmed minds to do the bidding of those in high places, who used them to terrorize the people in the Washington, D.C., area. The snipers shot and critically wounded a 13 year old and left the tarot card of death at the scene. (20) Witches, occultists, and members of secret societies commonly use the tarot deck. I have a paper that was given to me by a Freemason entitled Freemasonry and the Tarot. The tarot deck contains 78 cards, and 56 of them correspond to the regular deck of playing cards. In the tarot deck, wands=clubs, cups=hearts, swords=spades, and pentacles=diamonds. There are also 22 pictorial cards numbered 0-21; such as death, the fool, the devil, the magician, and the hanged man. These cards and even regular playing cards have no place in the life of a Christian nor should they be in a Christian's home!

There is something else that must be pointed out about the snipers, and it connects them with the Skull and Bones' organization. We must bear in mind that in the world of the occult, there is what is known as reflective power or mirror image power. One example is "red rum", which is murder spelled backwards. It is interesting to note that the rifle used by the snipers was the civilian version of the M-16 and is called a "Bushmaster" and uses a .223 caliber round of ammunition. (21) If we reverse the word order of Bushmaster, we have Master Bush, and reversing the numbers of the caliber of ammunition, we have 322, the sacred number of the Skull and Bones. Thus we have Master Bush of the 322. I have been threatened to not write what I have just written and have been told that a lot of things could happen to me, but my life is in the Lord's hands. When the Lord saved me out of witchcraft, he took all fear out of my heart and gave me the guts of a lion. The witches do not know what to do with me because they know I am telling the truth, and that I was once very much a part of their world. I am now covered with the saving power of the blood of Jesus Christ and humbly rely on His protection.

At this point, I must mention an article that appeared in USA Today written by a very brave Alexandra Robbins. The article is headlined, "White House Bonesman Leads Nation Into The Dark." The article starts out by saying, "My senior year at Yale University I joined Skull and Bones, a secret society," President Bush wrote this in his autobiography, then added, "so secret, I can't say anything more." (22) For those who think President Bush is a Christian, I can tell you that the only way out of a secret society is to break the oath of secrecy and tell it openly. Otherwise you are not out! President Bush has never done that. In fact, President Bush has appointed fellow Bonesmen to high-level positions, such as Edward McNally, the general counsel of the Office of Homeland Security and senior associate counsel on national security. (23) One of the first social gatherings at the White House was a Skull and Bones reunion, and when Bush was asked about Skull and Bones by a reporter, his profound answer was, "The thing is so secret that I am not even sure it still exists." (24) The fact is that our President, his father, and his grandfather all laid naked in a stone coffin in the tomb of the Skull and Bones at Yale University and were "born again" into a satanic order! President Bush was in the Yale graduating class of 1968 and was tapped into the Skull and Bones that year. He graduated with a "C" average even though he was a "D" student. When he appointed his classmate and fellow Bonesman Robert McCallum to the position of Assistant Attorney General, McCallum had a law changed to keep all Presidential pardons a secret. (25) After the 9-11-01 attacks, Bonesman Bush set up what he called a "shadow government" and cut off information about it from some Congressmen. (26) Bonesman Bush also eagerly signed the "USA Patriot Act", which allows a secret Washington spy court to view customer records with storeowners, who are being forbidden to notify the customers. In October 2001, Attorney General John Ashcroft released a memo stating that Federal agencies should withhold as much information as possible from the public. (27) President Bush also signed an executive order hindering public access to former presidents' records. (28) Mr. Bush also signed legislation that jails and fines journalists who publish what are considered to be "sensitive leaks." (29) The above are just some of the things coming forth from the elite network of Yale Alumni known as Skull and Bones.

A Smitten And Shaking Earth!

I can assure you that Almighty God sees and knows all that is going on, and His judgement is not far off! The earth is already trembling at what is soon to come, even though the people that populate this troubled planet continue to turn their heads and pretend that they do not see. The monsoons of Nepal have left 25 million people homeless. (30) The earthquake that hit Alaska and jolted much of that large state was a magnitude 7.9 and was so intense that it shook loose sediment as far away as Iowa and caused water to turn black. (31) The quake in Alaska hit at 1:13 P.M. on 11-3, (32) another inverted number! Is God trying to tell us something?

On the Eve of Veterans' Day, 11-11-02, 70 tornadoes ripped through numerous states from Alabama to Pennsylvania causing 36 deaths and much devastation. Strangely enough, the path of some of the tornadoes followed the very path for nearly a thousand miles of the roads we traveled on when coming back from our journey to the East coast. (33) It was no coincidence that God sent 70 tornadoes on the eve of Armistice Day when the Armistice was signed at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month to end World War I. Is God warning this nation to not go to war? God help us in this time when time is so short!

In closing, I urge everyone to continue to pray and stay serious with you Maker. Time truly is almost gone. Please continue to send your prayer requests, and we will bring them to the throne of the Almighty. I want to especially thank all of you who pray for us and support this end-time ministry. God bless you for it. The coming year of 2003 will be a year of amazing events. I will prayerfully keep you informed. Grace and Peace be unto you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
