Dear President Clinton,
SIGNS OF THE TIMES: THE WRATH OF GOD: A WATCHMAN
The earth and mankind have recently experienced phenomenal cataclysmic weather and other environmental phenomena that are unprecedented in terms of intensity, frequency, devastation and pandemicity. The recent mudslides along the California coastline that caused substantial loss of land and property, the massive flooding and mudslides in Latin America and South America, the massive floods in North America, Europe, Australia and Asia, the widespread uncontrollable forest fires, and the continual stream of violent thunderstorms and tornadoes in the United States, are SIGNS OF THE TIMES. Mankind attributes these cataclysmic weather phenomena to El Nino and Global Warming which are euphemisms for THE WRATH OF GOD.
SPIRITUAL DEAFNESS AND BLINDNESS
The LORD said to Isaiah: “Go and tell this people: Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving. Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. … Until the cities lie ruined and without inhabitant, until the houses are left deserted and the fields ruined and ravaged, until the LORD has sent everyone far away and the land is utterly forsaken.” – Isaiah 6: 9 – 13. Here, God declares His utter frustration with Israel’s continual rebelliousness and therefore vents His anger on Israel by decreeing judgement on Israel. Sadly, this state of affairs inescapably applies to mankind today, and therefore, God will vent His fury on the earth and its people if the world continues to be deaf and blind to God!
Because of the corruption, wickedness and violence on the earth which grieved God, God told Noah: “I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it.” – Genesis 6: 17. “Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made. … In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month- on that day all the Springs of the Great Deep burst forth, and the Floodgates of the Heavens were opened. And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights. … For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth; … The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than twenty feet. Every living thing that moved on the earth perished- birds, livestock, wild animals, all the creatures that swarm over the earth, and all mankind. … Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark.” – Genesis 7: 4 – 23
Sodom and Gomorrah provoked the wrath of God by indulging in homosexuality and other forms of sexual perversion that are utterly detestable to God. “Then the LORD said: The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. …” – Genesis 18: 20. “The men of Sodom and Gomorrah said to Lot: Where are the men (two angels) who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them. … Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah- from the LORD out of the heavens. Thus He overthrew (destroyed) those cities and the entire plain, including all those living in the cities- and also the vegetation in the land.” – Genesis 19: 5 – 25.
Of the ten plagues with which God struck the Egyptians because of the refusal of Pharaoh and the Egyptians to let the Israelites leave Egypt, nine were environmental or ecological disasters: the plagues of blood, frogs, gnats, flies, livestock, boils, hail, locusts and darkness. The plague of boils was due to the pollution of the environment by dust which carried infective bacteria that caused the boils and festering sores.
“Then the LORD said to Moses: Stretch out your hand toward the sky so that hail will fall all over Egypt. … When Moses stretched out his staff toward the sky, the LORD sent thunder and hail, and lightning flashed down to the ground. So the LORD rained hail on the land of Egypt; hail fell and lightning flashed back and forth. It was the worst storm in all the land of Egypt since it had become a nation.” – Exodus 9: 22- 24.
The wind is an instrument of God. God sent and used a very powerful wind to divide the waters of the Red Sea for the Israelites to cross on dry ground. “Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the LORD drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.” – Exodus 14: 21. “Jesus got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves: Quiet! Be still! Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. … They were terrified and asked each other: Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey Him!” – Mark 4: 39 – 41.
Similarly, when Joshua and the Israelites defended the Gibeonites against the attacking Amorites, “The LORD hurled large hailstones down on the Amorites from the sky, and more of the Amorites died from the hailstones than were killed by the swords of the Israelites.” Joshua 10:11.
Not only does the wind blow and the rain pour at the command of God, but also, the sun would stand still at God’s command. “On the day the LORD gave the Amorites over to Israel, Joshua said to the LORD in the presence of Israel: O sun, stand still over Gibeon, O moon, over the valley of Aijalon. So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, … The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the LORD listened to a man. Surely the LORD was fighting for Israel.” Joshua 10:12-14.
By inspiration of God, King David declared: “The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because He was angry. Smoke rose from His nostrils; consuming fire came from His mouth, burning coals blazed out of it. He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under His feet. He mounted the cherubim and flew; He soared on the wings of the wind. He made darkness His covering, His canopy around Him- the dark rain clouds of the sky. Out of the brightness of His presence clouds advanced, with hailstones and bolts of lightning. … The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at your rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of breath from your nostrils.” Psalm 18:7-15.
GOD’S WEAPONS OF WAR
Jesus said: “The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going.” – John 3: 8.
“Then the LORD answered Job out of the storm: Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? … Have you entered the storehouses of the snow or seen the storehouses of the hail, which I reserve for times of trouble, for days of war and battle? What is the way to the place where the east winds are scattered over the earth? Who cuts a channel for the torrents of rain, and a path for the thunderstorm, …? … Do you send the lightning bolts on their way? Do they report to you: Here we are? Who …. endowed the heart with wisdom or gave understanding to the mind? … Who can tip over the water jars of the heavens when the dust becomes hard and the clods of the earth stick together.” – Job 38: 1 – 38. From the last sentence of the preceding passage of Scripture, it is crystal clear that THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY is our ultimate and only capable Environmental Protector!
THE ANGEL OF THE LORD WITH A DRAWN SWORD
When King David sinned against God by taking a census of the fighting men in Israel and Judah, God asked David, through Gad, the seer, to choose one of three punishments: “three years of famine, three months of being swept away before your enemies with their swords overtaking you, or three days of THE SWORD OF THE LORD- days of plague in the land, with the angel of the LORD ravaging every part of Israel.”
With utmost wisdom, King David declared his choice: “Let us fall into the Hands of The LORD, for His mercy is very great; but do not let me fall into the hands of men.” “So the LORD sent a plague on Israel, and seventy thousand men of Israel fell dead. And God sent an angel to destroy Jerusalem. But as the angel was doing so, the LORD … was grieved … and said to the angel who was destroying the people: Enough! Withdraw your hand! …. David looked up and saw the angel of the LORD standing between heaven and earth, with a drawn sword in his hand extended over Jerusalem.” -1 Chronicles 21: 8 – 16.
GOD IS IN CONTROL OF EVERYTHING
God determines the fate of every human being, every ruler and every nation according to whether the person, ruler or nation obeys God and does what is pleasing to God.
The Holy Bible, especially in the books of Judges, Kings and Chronicles, clearly shows that God gave peace and prosperity to the Israelites whenever they obeyed Him but brought upon them disaster and suffering by way of conquest and oppression by their neighbouring kingdoms whenever they rebelled against God. In particular, the reign of every king of Israel and Judah that disobeyed God was drastically cut short. The rebellious king was almost always condemned by God to untimely tragic death.
When Ahab, king of Israel, did evil in the eyes of God, he died as decreed by God in spite of his elaborate efforts to disguise himself in battle against the Arameans. “So the king of Israel brought together the prophets- about four hundred men- and asked them: Shall I go to war against Ramoth Gilead, or shall I refrain? Go, they answered, for the LORD will give it into the king’s hand. … However, Micaiah, the Man of God whom King Ahab hated for prophesying the truth, prophesied: Therefore hear the Word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on His Throne with all the host of heaven standing around Him on His right and on His left. And the LORD said: Who will entice Ahab into attacking Ramoth Gilead and going to his death there? .. Finally, a Spirit came forward, … and said: I will entice him. … So now the LORD has put a Lying Spirit in the mouths of these prophets of yours. The LORD has decreed disaster for you. …
Ahab, the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, king of Judah: I will enter the battle in disguise, but you wear your royal robes. … Now the king of Aram had ordered his … commanders: Do not fight anyone, small or great, except the king of Israel. When the chariot commanders saw Jehoshaphat, they thought: Surely this is the king of Israel. So they turned to attack him, but when Jehoshaphat cried out, the chariot commanders saw that he was not the king of Israel and stopped pursuing him. But someone drew his bow at random and hit the king of Israel between the sections of his armour. … The blood from his wound ran onto the floor of the chariot, and that evening, he died.” – 1 Kings 22: 1 – 37.
It is therefore absolutely clear that THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY determines the destiny of mankind. God orchestrates the ultimate events of the world in just the same way that our vainglorious Hollywood producers and directors orchestrate the almost always God- displeasing movies and soap operas that pervade our culture of self-adulation and idolatry. In a vision on the 10th of June, 1997, God showed me, in advance, an NBA Championship Finals Playoff game between the Chicago Bulls and the Utah Jazz. The Bulls were down by about ten points when suddenly Scottie Pippen scored quite a few three-pointers in very quick succession to enable the Bulls take the lead. God also showed me a similar NBA Playoff game on the 13th of May, 1997, and declared that He is in control of everything we do including the outcome of every sports match!
The supremacy of the Will of God was repeatedly emphasized in a vision on the 22nd of June 1997. God made it abundantly clear that He is in control of world affairs and that nobody can subvert His Will! In a vision on the 13th of May, 1998, I was in an open area in Lagos, Nigeria. There were tens of thousands of dejected people on the streets seeking daily bread. They had resigned to fate because they had tried to no avail to remove the dictator who had been oppressing them and had plunged the country into severe poverty and hopelessness. I prophesied to them that the dictator will go, but they did not believe. I however told them that God had decreed that the dictator must go, so he will leave office however impossible it seemed. To God’s glory, the Nigerian dictator, General Sani Abacha died in office on the 8th of June 1998! What is impossible with men is possible with God!
God has already determined how the world is going to end. The world will not end by nuclear holocaust. The present world will be brought to an end by God when His wrath is so provoked by an unbearable stench of sin that rises to God in heaven. Then, God shall create a new world in which righteousness, peace and joy shall reign!
SIGNS OF THE END OF THE AGE
Jesus said: “You will hear of wars and rumours of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginnings of birth pains. … And this Gospel of the Kingdom (of God) will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. …
For then there will be great distress, unequalled from the beginning of the world until now- and never to be equalled again. If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. … Immediately after the distress of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time the Sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see The Son of Man (Jesus Christ) coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. …” – Matthew 24: 6 – 36.
GOD’S INVISIBLE HORSES AND CHARIOTS OF FIRE
“It is not by power or might, but by the Spirit of the Living God.” In some wars, it is not the country with the superior or more powerful army in terms of weaponry, training and numbers that wins but the country that the LORD favours to win. God fights the battle for the country upon which He bestows divine favour in ways we do not quite see but somehow perceive!
“Now the king of Aram was at war with Israel. After conferring with his officers, he said: I will set up my camp in such and such a place. Elisha, the Man of God sent word to the king of Israel: Beware of passing that place, because the Arameans are going down there. So the king of Israel checked on the place indicated by the Man of God. Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that he was on his guard in such places. This enraged the king of Aram. He summoned his officers and demanded of them: Will you not tell me which of us is on the side of the king of Israel? None of us, my lord the king, said one of his officers, but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom. So the king of Aram sent horses and chariots and a strong force to capture Elisha. They went by night and surrounded the city. When Elisha’s servant saw the army with horses and chariots that had surrounded the city, he asked Elisha: Oh, my lord, what shall we do? Don’t be afraid, the prophet answered. Those who are with us are more than those who are with them. And Elisha prayed: O LORD, open his eyes so he may see. Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he saw the hills full of Horses and Chariots of Fire all around Elisha. …” – 2 Kings 6: 8 – 23.
“The LORD said to Moses: Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them: Be holy because I the LORD your God, am holy.” – Leviticus 19: 1 – 2.
“So be careful to do what the LORD your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left.” Deuteronomy 5: 32. “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.” – Deuteronomy 6: 4 – 9.
BLESSINGS FOR OBEDIENCE: CURSES FOR DISOBEDIENCE
“All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God: You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country. … However, if you do not obey the LORD your God and do not carefully follow all His commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: You will be cursed in the city and cursed in the country. … The LORD will strike you with wasting disease, with fever and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, with blight and mildew, which will plague you until you perish. The sky over your head will be bronze, the ground beneath you iron. … The LORD will afflict you with the boils of Egypt and with tumours, festering sores and itch, from which you cannot be cured. …” – Deuteronomy 28: 1 – 68.
“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” – Proverbs 22: 6. “Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline will drive it far from him.” – Proverbs 22: 15. “Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you punish him with the rod, he will not die. Punish him with the rod and save his soul from death (hell).” – Proverbs 23: 13 – 14. “The rod of correction imparts wisdom, but a child left to himself disgraces his mother.” – Proverbs 29: 15.
There is power of healing and power of deliverance in the rod of correction. This Truth is epitomized by the fact that God gave over His Son, Jesus Christ, to be flogged as a means to deliver us from sickness and disease. – Matthew 27: 28. “But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities, the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed.”- Isaiah 53: 5.
Virtually every parent, teacher, legislator, governor, judge and world leader of the present generation was brought up in accordance with this Divine Truth spoken by King Solomon by inspiration of God. Yet, by our earthly wisdom which we exalt above God’s wisdom, we now proclaim that disciplining children with the rod of correction is “Child Abuse”, punishable by imprisonment and by the forceful taking away of children by the State from the “culpable” parent! Not only do we disobey God’s Law, but also, we make our own countervailing laws to compel people to disobey God! We are wiser than God, so we decree: “Spare the rod and spoil the child! Therefore, the children of this generation are foolish, rebellious, lawless and uncontrollable; and their hearts are turned against their own parents and society. As we rebel against God, so do our children rebel against us! How would “intelligent” college students, who saw or heard that other college students died untimely and tragically after taking cocaine, LSD, heroine or after an alcohol binge, proceed to take the same drugs or have an alcohol binge to meet their own untimely tragic deaths? They have eyes that cannot see, and ears that cannot hear!
Younger and younger children have become drug addicts, rapists, armed robbers and murderers. Yet, with our satanic hearts we now say that parents whom we have disempowered from disciplining and controlling their children must be held accountable for the crimes and misdemeanors of their out-of-control children! Certainly, the “earthly wise” would say that the Holy Bible is outdated and unreasonable because, in verses 18 – 21 of chapter 21 of the Book of Deuteronomy, it recommended that a stubborn and rebellious son, who remained recalcitrant despite prolonged persistent instructing in the Way of God along with adequate disciplining with the rod of correction, should be stoned to death. A child in Biblical times who remained stubborn and rebellious in spite of persistent instructing in the Way of God along with adequate disciplining with the rod of correction was the equivalent of a child in our times, who murders with reckless abandon! Since we now enact laws to make children who commit murder to be eligible for the death penalty, we are also fulfilling this law of the Old Testament! Therefore, we should not judge God and the Bible, so that we would not be judged!
No one loves my children as much as I love them. I always tell my children that as a good father, I give them whatever they ask for if they deserve it, and I have it. Just as I give them cookies, candies and ice-cream when they ask for such things, so do I generously give them the rod of correction when they ask for it! A child asks for, and deserves, the rod of correction when, against instruction, the child persistently does the wrong thing! It is very important to point out that God is angry at us when we fail to discipline our children appropriately and adequately. Although Eli, the priest rebuked his two wayward sons, God punished Eli with death for not doing enough to restrain his two sons. 1 Samuel 3: 11 – 18, and 1 Samuel 4: 12 – 18.
In a vision on the 21st of October 1997, a young boy of about ten years of age was on trial in the United States for viciously killing another young child. The judge was perplexed that such a young child committed such a heinous crime and showed no remorse. However, the judge was disappointed that he couldn’t sentence the young murderer to death because he was a minor. Several parents were in the courtroom to witness the trial. As they discussed and worried about how to raise their children so that their children wouldn’t commit such heinous acts, I told the parents, by inspiration of God, that, contrary to society’s teaching, it was right for them to discipline their children with the rod of correction; then, their children would not get out of control to commit such evil acts.
However, it is very important to note that the fundamental, most important and most effective way to discipline children is instructing them in the Way of God which teaches them right and wrong, and admonishes them to do the right thing at all times and shun evil at all times!
Those who criminalize God-ordered methods of disciplining and rearing children are the same people who feed and fill the eyes, ears, minds and hearts of our children with vile, violent, gory, lawless and “out-of-control behavior-promoting” cartoons and video games. Even candies sold to pre-school and kindergarten children are now being marketed with lewd semi-nude pornographic photographs of “The Spice Girls” which the school children stick onto the covers of their school books. “The Spice Girls” are merchants of immorality and ungodliness, yet, world leaders glorify them as role models for our children by inviting them in their lewd attires to State Houses whereby they desecrate and defile the earth’s Thrones of Government that are established on righteousness by God. God revealed in a vision on the 24th of October 1997, that current television programmes were indoctrinating children with unwholesome, violent, vile, obscene and immoral behavior which He hated; and instructed that such programmes be replaced with truly educative and morally edifying ones.
In our wisdom, violence, murder, mayhem, mischief and immoral behavior are our acclaimed forms of entertainment! A movie is not thrilling if it does not contain lewd pornographic scenes, gun violence, murder and other forms of abhorrent behavior! The actors and actresses who showcase these morbid obsessions are our heroes, heroines and role models. They are also the heroes, heroines and role models of our children. By the time children start schooling, they have each seen tens of thousands of graphic images of murder and other forms of violence; and are therefore primed to act out the violence in fulfillment of Pavlov’s Law and Classical Operand Conditioning!
Furthermore, guns are almost as commonplace and accessible as children’s toys; and since everyone has a non-existent “constitutional” right to bear arms, young school children easily obtain these weapons to embark on shooting rampage. Obviously, it is fun and entertainment to kill! We reap as we sow; and those who live by the sword, die by the sword! The recent very tragic school shootings in Mississippi, Kentucky, Arkansas and Oregon were not accidents. Yet, even Christians are twisting the Letter and Spirit of the Constitution of the United States to fight for a non-existent, foolish and suicidal “constitutional” right for every citizen to bear arms that include semi-automatic and automatic rifles and pistols. Do we need an automatic weapon that can instantly discharge fifty or more rounds of ammunition to hunt a deer?
“Confusion has made its masterpiece, has broken into the Lord’s anointed temple and stolen thence the life of the building.”- Shakespeare. The Spirit of Confusion, Perversion and Rebellion is especially evident in the extremely shameless but temporarily successful efforts to ban Official School Prayers in the United States. While the United States’ Congress, arguably the highest institution and greatest symbol of the Government of the United States, officially opens every of its sessions with prayer, Official School Prayer is illegal in schools in the United States due to a mischievous deliberate misinterpretation and misapplication of the erroneous Doctrine of Separation of Church and State. Even Nigeria, which is being ruled by Muslim military dictators, allows Official Christian Prayers and the teaching of the Bible in its schools. Yet, Nigeria is more religiously diverse than the United States because of its multifarious Christian and Islamic denominations, and innumerable Traditional African Religions!
How could it be offensive to ask God to bless and protect the teachers and students in the schools, and to guide the teachers in the impartation of knowledge and wisdom to the children? Strangely, these Spiritual Rebels have not clamoured for expunging the inscription: “IN GOD WE TRUST” from the United States’ currency notes and coins. Similarly, they have not advocated the deletion of the phrases which essentially state: “GOD BLESS AMERICA” from the United States’ national anthem which is the “National Prayer” of the United States.
TRANSVESTISM AND HOMOSEXUALITY: ABOMINATIONS TO GOD
“A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this.” Deuteronomy 22:5. Until a few years ago, it was universally considered extremely primitive and abominable for men to wear earrings, but our male celebrities, including sports superstars, now pride themselves with earrings! In a vision on the 2nd of May 1997, by inspiration of God, I rebuked some adolescent boys for wearing earrings, removed the earrings from their ears, and told them that it was rebellion against God for males to wear ear-rings and dress like females. In a vision on the 19th of February 1998, I took one of my daughters to pierce her ears for ear-rings. Shockingly, a young man suddenly popped his head, pushed my daughter away and demanded that his ears be pierced for earrings. The attendant at the ear-piercing shop acceded to the young man’s demand, pierced his ears and placed ear-rings in them. However, to the confusion of the young man, the attendant insisted that the young man must be assigned an identification number because every man that pierces his ears and wears ear-rings like women must be assigned an identification number. The young man resisted to no avail and so was assigned a number. This vision suggests that the wearing of earrings by men may be a Mark of the Beast!
“The LORD said: Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.” – Leviticus 18: 22. When a man is sexually promiscuous, we say he is a dog. Yet, dogs never practice homosexuality. Certainly, no animal species in the vast animal kingdom practices homosexuality. All animals absolutely obey the Law of God which prohibits homosexuality but man in his wisdom, practices and glorifies homosexuality, and further plots to replace normosexuality with homosexuality. In the eyes of God, homosexuality may be a more grievous sin than stealing and killing because a man may steal or kill out of selfishness and not out of a desire to spite God but homosexuality is directly spiteful of God and a hallmark of rebellion against God. Serial killers, rapists, pedophiles and thieves could also justifiably claim as homosexuals that their antisocial acts are genetically determined.
For those who never knew, let it be made known that homosexuality is extremely harmful to society because it brings curse on the land and provokes THE WRATH OF GOD on the land and all its people!
How can homosexuals, who engage in such deviant immoral lifestyle and deliberately chose not to have children, have the right to adopt children? Homosexuals are entitled to food, jobs, housing and society’s Genuine Love by which we must truthfully tell them that their lifestyle is morally and spiritually wrong. Furthermore, by our Genuine Love, we must pray for them to be delivered from their spiritual bondage and inevitable eternal damnation.
GOD IS VERY ANGRY WITH THE WORLD OVER ABORTION
In a vision on the 14th of November 1997, I saw THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY seated on His Throne in Heaven as He told me that He was very angry with the world over abortion. The LORD also told me that He was very angry at me for had been personally guilty of the sin of abortion. Even though I strongly objected to the abortion and was not present when it was performed, I was not dissuasive enough and somehow contributed to it. God told me that He had forgiven me; yet, it was important for Him to express His anger for my sin. Therefore, I have no self-righteousness; my testimony is not to condemn others but to make known the Truth for all mankind to come to the saving knowledge of God!
The following Scriptures clearly show that we existed in the Spirit World before we were formed in our mothers’ wombs. The LORD told Prophet Jeremiah: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:4-5. “Listen to me, you Islands; hear this you distant nations: Before I was born The LORD called me; from my birth He has made mention of my name.” Isaiah 49: 1. Here, Jesus Christ, The Son of God and Ultimate Servant of God, reveals Himself to Isaiah centuries before He, Jesus was born. Jesus also said: “Before Abraham was born, I am!” John 8:58. Pregnancy is therefore only a vehicle by which God brings us from the Spirit World to our temporal existence!
In a very remarkable vision on the 15th of October 1997, God revealed that abortion was a grievous sin; and warned politicians not to play politics with the issue to secure votes. In the vision, God showed to me, on a huge television screen, a fully formed baby in her mother’s womb. The baby was very elegantly and colourfully dressed in a dress, hat, socks and shoes while in the womb, and the baby smiled heartily as The Hand of God protectively moved and positioned her in the womb. The baby was particularly very happy and excited when The Hand of God positioned her down in the pelvis of the mother to prepare for birth.
God has repeatedly shown me, in visions, two sons that I will have. In some visions, although they are yet to be born, they are about five years of age, and they talk and play with me! “Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from Him.” – Psalms 127: 3.
When we abort babies, we are rebelliously disrupting God’s plan for our lives, God’s plan for the lives of the abortees and God’s plan for the world. In essence, we are telling God that we are wiser than Him. The two fundamental reasons why we abort pregnancies are: firstly, that we have refused to obey God and follow His plan for our lives; and secondly, we lack FAITH to trust that God shall help us through every difficult and trying circumstance. If we obeyed God and followed His plan for our lives, we will never have “unwanted” pregnancies! With God, nothing is impossible! Just trust and obey!
In a vision on the 8th of December 1997, God condemned doctors who perform abortion as a means of birth control. Doctors were exhorted to help God to maintain life in accordance with their sacred professional obligation rather than destroy life. Adolescents were also instructed to abstain from sex until marriage. “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.” – Proverbs 14: 12.
God can and shall care for any population He allows on earth. Any suffering mankind faces is because of our own wickedness and sinfulness which invite THE SWORD OF THE LORD upon us! God, in His infinite wisdom, apportions to everyone various numbers of children, ranging from zero to as high as fifteen or more. The LORD knows the maximum population that the world will ever attain because He is the Creator who brings every person into this world. At every point in time, God takes account of the fraction of the population that will die naturally, those that will die by the wicked acts of evil-doers, and those who will die by THE SWORD OF THE LORD’S WRATH; and then, He replenishes the earth with humans according to His purpose! God is in control of the dynamics of the human population. The Malthusian Theory of Population is flawed because of the erroneous impression it gives that God deliberately controls the human population by indiscriminately visiting mankind with famines, earthquakes and other natural disasters. THE SWORD OF THE LORD comes upon us not because God has pleasure in destroying us, but because we force THE HAND OF THE LORD against ourselves by provoking Him to anger by our disobedience! Why would God save some of us from death if He has pleasure in destroying us? “Do I take pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the sovereign LORD. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?” – Ezekiel 18: 23.
“Seek the LORD while He may be found; call on Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his ways and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the LORD, and He will have mercy on him, and to our God, for He will freely pardon.” “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways”, declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is My Word that goes out from My Mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” – Isaiah 55: 6 – 11.
“Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens? … Whom did the LORD consult to enlighten Him, and who taught Him the right way? …. Before Him all the nations are as nothing; … To whom, then, will you compare God? … He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy and spreads them out like a tent to live in. He brings princes to naught and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing. … To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal? says the Holy One. Lift your eyes and look to the heavens; who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name. Because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing. … Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom.” – Isaiah 40: 12 – 28.
“I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster, I, the LORD, do all these things. … Woe to him who quarrels with his Maker, to him who is but a potsherd among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter: What are you making? Does your work say: He has no hands? … It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own Hands stretched out the heavens: I marshaled their starry hosts.” – Isaiah 45: 7 – 12.
THE FULFILLMENT OF THE LAW
Jesus said: “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law and the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. …” – Matthew 5: 17 – 20.
SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS AND DAMNATION
Jesus declared to the unbelievers: “Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! … If the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day. But I tell you that it will be more bearable for Sodom on the Day of Judgement than for you.” Matthew 11:20-24. Jesus also declared: “The men of Nineveh will stand up at the Judgement with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah …” – Luke 11: 32. Mankind is so self-righteous that we “make” God in our own image and likeness, rather than conform to the image and likeness of God, our Creator! Instead of obeying the Laws of God, we abuse the time-limited Grace of God, and rationalize our damnable sinful rebellious acts. We argue that times have changed, and therefore the Biblical Code of Laws given to mankind by God was applicable to our “primitive” Biblical ancestors but does not apply to our modern and “civilized” generation. We defy the Truth: “GOD WAS THE SAME YESTERDAY, IS THE SAME TODAY, AND SHALL BE THE SAME FOREVER.” Sometimes, we pick and choose which of the Laws of God we should obey. God will never have double standard for successive generations. If homosexuality was abominable to our “primitive” Biblical ancestors, how could it then be acceptable to our “civilized” present generation! God shall therefore judge our generation, to which the Gospel has been exhaustively preached, more harshly than Sodom and Gomorrah because: “from everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded.”- Luke 12: 47 – 48. Self-righteousness fossilizes sinful rebelliousness which incurs damnation! “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit reap eternal life.” – Galatians 6: 7 – 8.
“All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” – Romans 3: 23. “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” – Psalm 51: 17. “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” – James 4: 6. The self-righteous will refuse to repent of their sins because they are too proud to acknowledge their sins. Therefore, the self-righteous will continue to sin, and so will reap damnation. Since God is our Supreme Authority, the fear of the LORD is the hallmark of humility.
SALVATION: THE GRACE OF GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3: 16. Jesus said: “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the Kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to Spirit. … You must be born again!” – John 3: 5 – 7.
Centuries before Jesus was born, Jesus declared His messiahship: “The Spirit of The Sovereign LORD is on me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.” – Isaiah 61: 1. Mankind, through the deceit of Satan, is in captivity to Sin. Jesus Christ has been empowered and commissioned by God to baptize us with the Holy Spirit which purifies and renews our hearts, replaces our stony hearts with hearts of flesh, replaces our earthly wisdom with heavenly wisdom, and fills us with the nature of God so that sin becomes detestable to us. In effect, Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit, frees us from the desire and compulsion to sin. We are then born again! Consequently, we live righteous lives and thereby obtain SALVATION for our souls. Therefore, those who make Jesus the Lord of their lives by obeying and following Him shall have dominion over Satan and Sin. “For whom the Son sets free, is free indeed!” – John 8: 36.
A MINISTRY OF RECONCILIATION AND NOT A MINISTRY OF CONDEMNATION: NOT A PROPHET OF DOOM BUT A MESSENGER OF SALVATION
My ministry is therefore not a ministry of condemnation but that of persuasion and reconciliation. I am not a prophet of doom, but a messenger of SALVATION!
THE LORD’S DEVASTATION OF THE EARTH: THE CUP OF GOD’S WRATH
“See, the LORD is going to lay waste the earth and devastate it; He will ruin its face and scatter its inhabitants- It will be the same for priest as for people, for master as for servant, for mistress as for maid, for seller as for buyer, for borrower as for lender, for debtor as for creditor. The earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered. The LORD has spoken this word. … The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore, earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.” – Isaiah 24: 1 – 6.
“This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, said to me: Take from my hand this cup filled with the wine of my wrath and make all the nations to whom I send you drink it. … You will not go unpunished, for I am calling down a SWORD upon all who live on the earth, declares The LORD ALMIGHTY. Now prophesy all these words against them and say to them: The LORD will roar from on high, He will thunder from His Holy Dwelling and roar mightily against His land. …The tumult will resound to the ends of the earth, for The LORD will bring charges against the nations, He will bring judgement on all mankind and put the wicked to the SWORD; declares The LORD. This is what the LORD ALMIGHTY says: Look! Disaster is spreading from nation to nation, a mighty storm is rising from the ends of the earth. At that time those slain by the LORD will be everywhere- from one end of the earth to the other.” – Jeremiah 25: 15 – 33.
“Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks: Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the THRONE and from the wrath of the LAMB! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?” – Revelation 6: 15 – 17.
“After this I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or the sea or any tree. Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the Seal of the Living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the Servants of our God.” – Revelation 7: 1 – 3. “Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth, and there came peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake. … The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up and all the green grass was burned up.” Revelation 8:5-7. “And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. … A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that came out of their mouths.” – Revelation 9: 15 – 18.
THE ELOQUENT TESTIMONY OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL
The modern State of Israel recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary of Nationhood. The restoration of the State of Israel after several centuries of exile of the Israelites as decreed by The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY is an eloquent testimony of God’s omnipotence and omniscience as well as the unquestionable validity and accuracy of the HOLY BIBLE! This is an absolute proof that whatever God declares shall be fulfilled, and that every prophecy in the Bible shall be fulfilled! This miraculous turn of events of human history was declared by God over two thousand years ago: “I will throw you out of this land into a land neither you nor your fathers have known, …, for I will show you no favour. However, the days are coming, declares The LORD, when men will no longer say, …. , but they will say: As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the Israelites out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where He had banished them. For I will restore them to the land I gave their forefathers.” – Jeremiah 16: 13 – 15. “I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you, declares The LORD, and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile!” – Jeremiah 29: 14.
MYSTERIES OF GOD
While the United States’ National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the entire United States gleefully celebrated the successful landing of Pathfinder Sojourner on Mars, God showed me our entire Solar System in a vision on the 9th of July 1997. God then told me that He will reveal the mysteries of the Universe and its creation to me if I remain faithful to Him. God has mysteries which He reveals only at appointed or appropriate times. “But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished.” – Revelation 10: 7. Certain mysteries will never be revealed to anyone till the end of the world. For instance, God will not reveal the day and hour the world will end. Jesus said: “No one knows that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son (Himself), but only The Father.” – Matthew 24: 36.
Jesus told His disciples: “The knowledge of the Secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven has been given to you, but not to them. … Blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. For I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.” Matthew 13:11-23. The Hubbell telescope or the best such astronomical instrument that man will ever make will never enable mankind to see God who created the Universe. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” – Matthew 5: 8.
THE AWESOME POWER OF THE WORD OF GOD: CHRIST IN US, THE HOPE OF GLORY
In a vision on the 13th of April 1997, I was seated majestically, robed and crowned in a similar manner that Jesus Christ was seated, robed and crowned when, in a vision about September 1995, He embraced and welcomed me to THE THRONE OF THE FATHER, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, in heaven. When I spoke, in the vision of the 13th of April of 1997, my words, which were the words of God that God had placed in my mouth, streamed out as flames of fire, were very powerful, sharper than a two-edged sword, and accomplished whatever they were sent out to accomplish. I was extremely terrified of the awesome power of the words I spoke, so I restrained myself from speaking! LORD, I will speak YOUR WORDS which YOU have put in my mouth! This vision illustrates the mystery: “Christ in us, the hope of glory!”
I hereby further testify to the awesome power of God in that while it took the United States’ National Aeronautics and Space Administration several months to transport Pathfinder Sojourner by rocket from earth to Mars, it took just about five minutes for the Angel of God to take me from earth to the Throne of God in heaven which is far more distant than Mars!
SIGNS OF THE TIMES: UNBELIEVABLE TURBULENCE OF THE SEA
The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY has shown me many signs and wonders. God showed me an unbelievable great turbulence of the sea in a vision on the 21st of March 1998. The turbulence of the sea was so great and the turbulent waves of the sea pounded the land with indescribable ferocity that every building on the land swayed like flexible poles. The top of the sky-high buildings were swayed downwards to touch the ground and the sea! Amazingly, the buildings did not break into pieces or collapse. I yelled out to God to calm the sea, and God calmed the section of the sea in front of my house but the rest of the sea remained turbulent and the rest of the land continued to be pounded by the waves.
In a vision on the 27th of February 1998, God showed me storm-ravaged areas of the United States and told me that there was still a series of such devastating storms to hit the country. As declared by God, the thunderstorms and tornadoes have continued till the time of writing!
YOU HAVE DISOBEYED THE LORD YOUR GOD
As I have testified to previously, God has bestowed significant grace upon you. You and Hillary visited me in a vision on the 18th of February 1998. Then, by inspiration of God, I told you and Hillary that your political and ethical troubles were Spiritual Battles, and that you will be cleared of all the allegations for which you were being investigated. Subsequently, in a vision on the 22nd of May, 1998, I was shown that you had been cleared of all the allegations and all your ethical troubles were over. You were ecstatic as you submitted a voucher for the refund of two and half million dollars ($2.5 million) of legal bills you had incurred in the course of the very prolonged multifarious investigations. Reverend Jesse Jackson was at your side at the moment of your triumph and jubilation.
I commend you for issuing an Executive Order to ban the importation of certain semi-automatic and automatic assault weapons for non-military use. However, this ban should be appropriately extended to cover the manufacture and sale of such weapons in the United States for non-military use.
Regrettably however, you have disobeyed the LORD your God by refusing to issue an Executive Edict to prohibit the validation, teaching and promotion of homosexuality in schools in the United States to avert THE WRATH OF GOD in this regard; as contained in my letter to you dated the 1st of January, 1998, titled: “HOMOSEXUALITY PROVOKES THE WRATH OF GOD.” God is Truth; God is neither a Democrat nor a Republican, and Truth is neither Liberal nor Conservative! “Jesus said: If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” – John 8: 31 – 32. Had you eschewed “political correctness” and obeyed God in the pertinent issues, your political and ethical troubles might have long been over! Jesus affirmed that the greatest and most important commandment is: “Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” – Mark 12: 29 – 30. Jesus also said: “If you love me, you will obey what I command.” – John 14: 15.
With brotherly love, I wish to warn that you would be personally responsible for any loss of American lives resulting from any violent storm or natural disaster that God visits on the United States because of your refusal to obey God’s command.
“The Word of the LORD came to me: Son of Man, speak to your countrymen and say to them: When I bring THE SWORD against a land, and the people of the land choose one of their men and make him their watchman, and he sees THE SWORD coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people, then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not take warning and THE SWORD comes and takes his life, his blood will be on his head. … But if the watchman sees THE SWORD coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and THE SWORD comes and takes the life of one of them, that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood. Son of Man, I have made you a watchman for the House of Israel; so hear THE WORD I speak and give them warning from me.” – Ezekiel 33: 1 – 7.
I AM SIMPLY A WATCHMAN!
God bless you.
