KOB-TV, Channel 4 visited us on November 15th. On their website is the message: "Monday 10 PM: Find out why the FBI is so interested in a cult residing in New Mexico."
Two reporters came to visit, and expressed interest in us, since they had gotten rumors about us. "Suicide cult" was one of those rumors. When they left, I felt that the discussion was over, but the morning after, on my bed, I realized there was so much information unsaid, that it would take days of questions to cover it all. I thought I would like to write an overview of our history, and answer some of the whys, so that it would be clear to anyone who read the overview, what everything was about, whether or not they cared to believe it.
They asked questions like, Are you a cult? What things make you different from other religions? Why did you come to New Mexico? Where did you come from? Why do you live in RVs? Are you Michael, the Archangel?
What is a cult? A cult is, according to Webster's 1913 dictionary, "A system of religious belief and worship. That which was the religion of Moses is the ceremonial or cult of the religion of Christ. --Coleridge." In this we would be considered a Christ cult. Truly, we are a Christ cult, as the children of Israel were in their separation from Egypt. I asked a police chief in Sandpoint, Idaho where we lived, what he regarded as a cult. He had been passing the word around that a cult lived up on the mountain in Sandpoint. I felt I would like to speak with him and ask him what he meant by a cult. He told me a cult was any group that did not follow the norms of society. The norms of the current cult of society, include the homosexual preferences as a norm. There are same sex marriages in the current society. A cult would be a group of people who do not accept this norm. We would be included in the cult that does not receive this societal norm.
A cult is like a CULTure. It is a religious CULTure. There are many main line religions that could be defined as a cult. Mormons, Seventh-day Adventists, Catholics, Jehovah's Witnesses, and others would all fit into the definition of cult, especially the definition, "A system of religious belief and worship." Most of these cults are considered "safe" cults, but our cult is considered by some as a dangerous cult. They come to ask us questions to find out if we are dangerous or not, since their first inclinations are to suspect something dangerous, since we don't appear to be like them.
It does not seem to occur to those who come to check out our cult, how their own cult is the dangerous one. It is their cult leader that rains bombs down on citizens of other countries. It is their cult leader who controls mountains of weapons of mass destruction. Our cult has no prisons, or drug hospitals. We have no unwed mothers. Our society is not split into a million atoms. It is their society that has all of these things. Why do they blame us for having what they profess to be looking for? Do not they claim to be fighting for peace? We have unity, and peace of mind. We enjoy each other and have everything we need. The world's cult is the one full of dysfunction, so why do they come here and try to find out if we are dysfunctional? Why do they ask about us, when their own cult is full of murder, strife, and dissension? We do not support those things here.
The question was asked, How is your congregation different from other denominations? Our congregation formed in 1987 when we separated from various churches. Many of us came from Seventh-day Adventist churches. I explained to News4, that the main difference is that we believe the Bible. Other churches do not. I used as an example of that, Galatians 6:7. It says, "Whatsoever a man sows, THAT shall he also reap."
I used to give seminars in various churches where I quoted this verse. The people in the churches would argue with me for days on how people do not REALLY get what they sow. They would give me great illustrations about starving children in Africa and other such scenarios, all to disprove that one single verse of Scripture. Well, our church believes that verse, just as it reads. This is the main difference between our church and others: We have decided that the Bible is true, while the churches we came from, and other religions, have decided that the Bible is generally true, or sometimes true. I have attended religious colleges, and in those colleges they use what they call "higher criticism" in explaining the Bible. What "higher criticism" is, is the science of explaining how the Bible does not mean what it says, or how some spurious author was responsible for writing one section or another. This is the study of modern religions. Our own religious study in this cult, is to study the Bible into us, and to see how the Bible is really true, and it has been true all along. Every lesson it teaches is true. Every verse is important and relevant. Our "higher criticism" has been reserved for the world and its system of disbelief. We spend time in study to show how the world's system of society is riddled with false teachings and erroneous theories. We disbelieve those theories made up in the imaginations of men.
Another form in the separation we experienced, was in education. Public education teaches children how to cope with the modern world of dysfunction. Public education teaches children to accept sexual perversion. The world teaches "sexual preference" and we do not believe in that. For this reason the parents in our congregation opted to teach their own children, rather than have them taught damaging behaviors in the public system. It is against our religious faith to teach our children to go against the clear, and written word, that we believe in. We teach our children to listen to their heavenly Father, and be faithful to His communication to their hearts. The world teaches children the acceptance of sexual experimentation with other children, and then when they grow up to be child molesters, something they learned growing up, the society seems outraged. Why is society outraged? Society taught their children to be child molesters.
There are many other influences to evil that society inflicts upon their children. They teach children witchcraft in their movies and television programs. These movies are seriously destructive to the formation of sound minds and strong principles. When their children are taught violence in their entertainment programs, and they turn out to be mass murderers in their schools, everyone seems surprised. Why should they be surprised to find their children with weapons, gunning down other children? They taught them to do that in their fantasy films of violence and force. It is in their video games, videos, morning TV cartoons, and in every other theater of influence. All they see is kill, kill, kill. Now, these very same children are being taught that there are terrorists out there and we should go out and kill them all. Not once is a sound mind considered. No one thinks these things through from cause to effect, but we have thought them through, and we have separated ourselves from these things, and we teach our children peace, and unity, instead. We teach them love for each other and respect for each other. That is why they do not need to go to jail when they grow up, or they do not need to go into a rehabilitation program, for drug abuse or some other abuse. The world's cult ruins their children, but we do not ruin ours. So what is the mystery here?
In our cult, we know that all things work according to cause and effect, but the world does not believe that. When the FBI came to question us, they reported a rumor that we had rejoiced over the destruction of the World Trade Center. We did not. We have witnessed the pain and suffering that people in the world inflict on each other and it is not anything to rejoice about. It is something to separate from. This is how the world views things though. It is they who rejoice over the misfortune of others, especially when the misfortune of others comes from the bombs of their own air force. What we did say in regard to the bombing of the Twin Towers, was that it was fair. I will explain why it is fair.
A number of years ago, the government attacked the Branch Davidian church. They killed almost everyone in there. They used deceit and coercion in the process. Literally, they broke the law in what was done to that people. Little children were gassed with a gas that was already banned, and there was no respect for life. The Attorney General expressed concern for the children, only to end up killing them all through their confrontation and force of arms. Now this is a dangerous cult in action. It was not the Branch Davidians who were dangerous, but the powers that came in and wiped them out. Cannot any reasonable man see that the dangerous cult were those who came in and destroyed this church? Any fool should be able to see it. So, now, there was a cause waiting for an effect. When the effect came, the national cult denied their cause. The effect of this destruction was the Oklahoma bombing. When the federal building was demolished, everyone seemed aghast and surprised. Why? "Whatsoever a man sows, THAT shall he also reap." Whatsoever a nation sows, THAT will that nation reap. Where is the mystery? There is none.
So, men lied, saying that we rejoiced over the destruction of the WTC, but we did see the cause and the just effect, and judge, with God, that it was fair. The Father only allows fair things. Just a few years ago, the United States bombed Serbia. They said they bombed it because there was a bad man doing bad things over in that country. Those bad things were largely proven false, and were revealed for the fabrications that they really were, but they said those things anyway. So, the cult of the American society, headed out to do bad things to the nation that had a "bad" president. Serbia did nothing to the United States to receive this kind of attack from the United States. Yet, the United States set out to punish that nation for having the president they elected. It was not long until the punishment returned.
Now why would people be so surprised when the WTC was destroyed, after witnessing the bombing of Serbia by U.S. planes? To us, the equation is as simple as 1+1=2. You get what you sow. This is the law. "Be not deceived, God is not mocked." It is as simple as this equation. Because of these obvious revelations of God's law, we want to save our children from being educated in ways that will make them participate in the plagues that are poured out upon the nations. We are following the command of Christ, Who said, "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." Rev. 18:4. The Word plainly says to us, Come out of her, or we will get the plagues that she gets. Does one wonder why we separate our children from plagues? Would not any loving parent separate their children from plagues? As the world would say, This is a no brainer.
The Scriptures speak of this power now pressing its will upon the nations. No more is mutual respect observed in the realm of political exchange. Now, it is, "Do what we say, or we will bomb you into submission, and then you will do what we say." This was done with Serbia, and now Iraq. "President Saddam Hussein said Saturday he had no choice but to accept a tough, new U.N. weapons inspection resolution because the United States and Israel had shown their 'claws and teeth' and declared unilateral war on the Iraqi people." It is written concerning those "claws and teeth":
And the king (leader) shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers [the respect for others], nor the desire of women [innocents and the physically weaker ones], nor regard any god [power]: for he shall magnify himself above all [You are either 100% for us or 100% against us]. But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces [military strength]: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things [international finance]. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god (power and force, instead of mutual respect and cooperation), whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain [divide all the land and impose taxes upon it. Also, distribute the land to rulers who will cooperate with his kingdom of money and force. By this he seeks to gain a financial advantage.] And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. He shall enter also into the glorious land [Middle East and Israel], and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him [Iraq is north and east of Israel]: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him. Dan. 11:36-45.
When our congregation was in Sandpoint Idaho, it came to us, Oh, this is how things work in the world. Well, we do not want to play anymore. We are not going to participate in murder, mayhem and perversion, in the name of human rights, peace and freedom. We are not going to play anymore, forever. So, when we decided not to play anymore, forever, in the game of murder, perversion and so called human rights, we are labeled a dangerous cult. We were seen as dangerous because we would not teach our children to be dangerous, and we would not allow them to become perverted by the norms of society. The whole world does not believe that what one sows is what one gets, but we happen to accept Gal. 6:7. It makes sense to us. We want our children to prosper in right living, and to have their lives governed by the Voice that speaks to the soul, instead of the voice that rants at the Congress and the world. We want to have the Voice of God be our governor and not the opinions and prejudices of the antichrist.
We lived in Idaho, near Sandpoint. We owned a ranch on one of the mountains there. We had a house where we might meet in bad weather, and a barn where we held meetings from time to time. Camp spaces for RVs were dotting the land and people could comfortably come and stay for a week or more and be relatively content in their circumstances. It was a very beautiful land, not far from a very large lake. I lived in Sandpoint for about 18 years. I built my house there, and over that time, friendships began to form, and a congregational family was established. Our numbers were usually around 100. The Father in heaven has been leading us over a period of 15 years and most of us have known each other over that time.
Because of our many camp meetings and close associations, we found ourselves traveling a good deal. It seemed less expensive, and presented fewer problems, to live in vehicles that could be moved. This is why, over the years, most of our family chose to live in RVs. One year the church spent the winter in Arizona, and we celebrated the end of the age, which came in 1994. At that time the rumors flew again, as "concerned" citizens reported that we were going to go south and commit suicide. I assured the Sheriff, that we would not be committing suicide and he could set his mind at ease.
It seems strange to the world, who has mostly enemies, that a group of people could enjoy each other for so long, and stand to live with each other for so long, without being under the influence of mind control, but we did and we do. The world cannot love someone as long as we do, so the world thinks it strange. Here we are, still living with each other, and enjoying each other. This does raise a large amount of jealousy in some folks, but we cannot help that. For a good number of years we invited others to come and be with us. Some did, but mostly the people we shared with were not interested in a new life. The way we live is not popular with the crowd. We are not exclusive, but truth is the most important thing there is to us, and we are very open and honest and truthful with each other, and most folks are not comfortable in such a vulnerable atmosphere. The government of heaven in which we live, does not follow the principles of the world's standard; and the world cannot understand heaven.
Over time, the spirit of the area we lived in began to change, and we noticed an increased hostility to Spiritual things. Sometimes we experienced vandalism against our camp. The spirit of the town in which we lived seemed more violent and the divisions in the community were becoming more pronounced. The Spirit in our own hearts began to move us to leave. We began receiving strong intimations of this "leaving" in one of our camp meetings. We noticed an unusual token in the heavens. It was the Constellation Virgo.
During that Day of Atonement of that year, the constellation Virgo was presented to us. We saw in this token in the heavens a fulfillment of Revelation 12.
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. Rev. 12:1-6.
This picture shows precisely how the constellation looked during that camp meeting. It was just as the Scriptures had described it. Immediately, we began to see the relationship between that constellation, and our leaving where we were, and going into the wilderness to be fed for 3 1/2 years. The Spirit moved strongly upon us, and we began looking for an opening where this would be accomplished in us. We did not know where we were going, but we all knew it was time to go. This "knowing" seemed to increase with time, and by February of 1999 it seemed imminent. At that time everyone began to prepare for the moving, even though we had no idea where we were going. We knew we were going somewhere for 3 1/2 years, for that was the prophecy that the heavenly Father was applying to His church, the church that believed what He said, and that what He said was true.
In July of 1999, I was in my trailer on my camping spot at the mountain ranch, when I was strongly directed by the heavenly Father to go south and look for the land that He had prepared for us. I was driven from my home and strongly made to take the trip to New Mexico. I went all by myself and hauled my 5th Wheel behind me. I visited with a family in the county who had a house for sale. I thought I would like to see their place and see if it might work for our family. I was with the family for about a week. The Father did not free me to commit to their land and I felt drawn to look elsewhere.
One day, while camping at the home of this family, I took a drive into the country. This county was in northern New Mexico where Father had directed me to come. I was much impressed with the land that seemed to flow green forever. It was during the summer monsoon, and everything that year was especially beautiful. Suddenly, while driving past a ranch in the grasslands, the Father instructed me to stop and ask the people there, where I might find a piece of land. I turned my truck around and drove to the ranch house. A kind young man came out to ask me what I wanted and he told me that his dad was in the bunkhouse. He took me to him and I entered into a discussion with him, asking him where I might find a place to buy.
The man was very kind and considerate, all the while assuring me that no such place could be found. "People here do not want to sell land, they want to buy it," he said. After a time, I thought our conversation had gone about as far as it could go, but just before I departed, the rancher took out a piece of paper and scribbled a phone number on it. He said, Here, call this man, he may be able to help you. I left the man, and very soon called that number to see if I could find the land that was in my heart to find.
The phone number was the number of a real estate broker. This man met with me and showed me various properties. I was not quite satisfied yet, for even though all the properties were very beautiful, I did not receive the Father's instructions in the matter. The following day, the broker turned me over to his associate to show me a piece of property way out in the country. It was a good drive to the property, and I did not know what to expect. We drove over miles of grassland and came upon a small valley that seemed to drop away from us as we entered it. Suddenly, the Father came upon me, and I knew this would be our home. The Father was already there waiting for us in the land of Travesser. I had spent only two weeks on my southern journey.
I returned to Idaho and completed my preparations for leaving. We did not yet know how we would purchase the new land, since our ranch in Idaho was for sale, but had not sold yet, and we had no other money available for the purchase, but what would be received from the sale of the ranch we were then living on. We spent that winter in Arizona together. By the following spring, we had agreed with the owner of the new land to trade our previous ranch for his. On paper, our ranch was valued at about double the value of his ranch, and it seemed a good exchange to him. His ranch was the one Father brought us to, and it also seemed more hospitable to the way in which we had been accustomed to living. We were both happy with the trade. The Spring of 2000, we came to the new ranch that we had just purchased. This is the place that was prepared of God for us, and where we would be fed Spiritually for 3 1/2 years. The feeding, began almost immediately.
From the first we began to be taught here in regard to the nature of the kingdom of God, and the emptiness from its own selfishness that a soul must experience for itself, in order to experience the kingdom of God. Men are basically selfish, and we were being taught to give all of that selfishness up. We were taught not to own anything or anyone, but simply to be stewards of God's property. We know and understand that the earth is based on its pride and selfishness. It teaches its children from the earliest grades in school to compete with other children and better them. The children are taught that they are good if they achieve above others. Our children are taught that they achieve if they help the less fortunate ones. They are taught that they are not better, but that they merely have gifts that others might not have, but others have gifts that they do not have, and all working together can share their gifts, making all things well for everyone. This cannot be done under the influence of the worldly minds that would seek to teach them otherwise. Our home is a heavenly one, and we are not inclined to come back to the earth, where all is controversy, attack, violence and oppression. We do not "molest" our children as the world molests its children. So why is the world so concerned if our lives are working so well? Why do they fear something that works, and think they are safe in their own world that doesn't work?
After this, I was asked by News4 if I were Michael the archangel. I answered, Yes, I am. After Father came upon me to expose the destructive power of that "Wicked one," who is now ruling the world, and to feed the Woman (church) in the wilderness for 3 1/2 years, He opened up to me the work that He was giving to me for this time, and anointed me with His Spirit to carry it out. That "Wicked one" is the one mentioned in 2 Thess. 2:8. "And then shall that Wicked be exposed." I began to see what my work was and it was the work of Michael mentioned in Revelation 12. It is not my body that is Michael, but the Spirit that came into me. My Spirit is Michael and Michael speaks in me. I only say what I hear Michael say.
And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 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. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. Rev. 12:7-17
I think it would be well to examine these verses from the perspective of what we have experienced. I will restate it:
And there was a great personal struggle in the midst of the people of God and in their new land where they were to be fed for 3 1/2 years. Old, familiar, Satanic forces fought with the messengers of God in their new land. The forces of evil were defeated, for no place was found for them to continue on in the land where the messengers of God lived. The great enemy of God's people was cast out, that old snake, called the Devil, and Satan, who was successful in deceiving the whole world. This enemy was driven out into the earth and his messengers were driven out with him. And I heard a loud Voice saying in this heavenly place, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Messiah Michael, for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which was accusing them before God day and night. And they overcame him by the life of the Lamb, Michael, and by the word of their testimony: for they loved not their own selfishness and would die to that selfishness, rather than retain it.
Therefore rejoice, you who live in the heavens and this experience of translation from the old way of thinking about life, to the new way. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows he has only a little time left. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, and could no longer molest the Woman in the wilderness, he persecuted the Woman (church) that brought forth the man child Michael. And to the Woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place where she is fed for three and one half times from the face of the serpent who hated her. And the serpent sent a flood after the Woman in the wilderness, so that she might be carried away in the flood. And the earth helped the Woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was very angry with the Woman, and went to make war with the remainder of her offspring, which keep the Word of the Father in heaven, and have the testimony of Messiah, Michael.
In all of these things, my own work was the work of Michael, Who appeared within me to show the Woman the nature of things in the earth and to prepare her to leave it altogether. In Father's time, the Woman will be translated to heaven, without experiencing physical death, and raptured up out of this dark world. The churches of the world profess this doctrine, but once one says that he is now preparing for it, the churches call the FBI in to investigate such strange behavior.
Michael is Jesus Christ's new name, for His work is different this time, than it was the first time. Oh, says the dragon, Are you saying you are Jesus Christ? I say that all of the children of God are expressions and revelations of Jesus Christ and Michael the archangel. Is it not written: "To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory." Col. 1:27.
Have not the religions taught their children in their Sunday schools, "Jesus is in your heart?" Well, Jesus is in my heart. Christ is in me, the hope of glory. He is in me and in everyone else who is filled with His presence. Is it not also written: "Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name [Michael]." Rev. 3:12. So, I have God's name written on me, for it is written that God's name is written on me. Christ's new name is also written on me. His new name is Michael. So why are the religions so concerned, when I have only believed the Word that they would not believe? I have received the testimony that Jesus Christ had, and I testify to it, and all testify to it who have received my word. This is what I mean when I say that we believe the Bible, but the churches of the world have forsaken it.
This Christ "cult" is only a Bible believing body. We are a Word believing body. Because of this, the Father in heaven has used us to fulfill His prophecies concerning the Woman in the wilderness of Travesser. He has brought to pass His purposes and exposed that "Wicked one," who corrupts the nations and prepares them all for war against each other. He hides from them the laws of cause and effect, so they cannot perceive that their own actions will come back upon them. They do not know they are in the very activities that will destroy their world and themselves in it. God's children have been removed from the earth, so that they will not partake of the plagues being poured out upon it.
So, we say to the world, Go your way and do your deeds, but we will not go with you. We are not going to partake of your crimes against humanity. We are not of you. We have only obeyed the Voice of the One Who lives forever and forever, when he said, "Come out of her, that you be not partakers of her sins, and thereby receive the plagues that she will receive."
So, to the people who come to question us, these are the answers to your questions. This is who we are, and this is where we have come from. You also know the reasons why we do what we do. And now you know Michael, Who has come down upon the earth to complete the work of God upon it. He has come to bring the Woman in the wilderness to full salvation, and finally remove her from the earth altogether. And no, this removal is not suicide. It will be the natural removal that took place with Enoch and Elijah. They were not, for God took them.
So, this is where we live now, in the land of Travesser. The Father in heaven brought us here to feed us, and to reveal in us His purposes. The question was asked us, What will happen after the 3 1/2 years are over? We don't know what will happen then. Father has not told us what will occur. He does not reveal those things until their time. The Scriptures give some very interesting things for thought, however, and we have thought of these things from time to time.
In the Revelation, Chapter eleven, we are told of two witnesses who prophesy for 3 1/2 years in sackcloth. Sackcloth was the clothing of prophets who lived in the wilderness. It is like as if the Woman in the wilderness had sackcloth for clothing.
"And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth [not letting them enjoy their sins anymore]. And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven." Rev. 11:3-13.
This is a most interesting prophecy in that it occurs over a 3 1/2 year period, also. We posted our testimony on the Internet last year, revealing all that was unfolding, the reasons for it, and the fulfillment of God's purposes by it. I noticed with great interest that this was also a time when the rains failed, for the west had one of the greatest droughts in history. "...that it rain not in the days of their prophecy." During this time also, on September 10, 2001, I received a prophecy which was written and posted on the Internet on that same day. Father came down with power upon me, and I strongly felt the Spirit of Michael in me, as I wrote:
I told you I would come again, and I have come again. Now let the nations mourn, for their kingdoms will be ground to powder. I will break in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver and gold. They will become like the chaff of the summer threshing floors and the wind will carry them all away. No place will be found for them anymore. I will become a great mountain and fill the whole earth with my light. It shall burn as an oven. My Father has said it and it is coming to pass as He has spoken. Dan 2:44-45.
The earth may think it can kill me. Oh, foolish men, you cannot kill me as you do your other enemies. If my Father gave my body over to you, you may kill it, but I will inhabit a hundred more. If men kill them, I will inhabit ten thousand more. You cannot kill a Spirit you foolish ones. The Spirit has come and it has entered into the earth. You have gone far enough, and now I will show you who it is that rules in the heavens. You have built your Babylonish tower, but I will make the top to break off and its foundations to sink into the mire. You will see the stability of the sand you have built on. You will try everything to save it but it will not be saved. Your merchants will wail, for no one will buy their merchandise anymore.
The judgment is set and my people shall take away this new dominion that has spoiled the world. I will consume it and destroy it until there is not a coal to warm at. The kingdom has been given to the saints of the Most High and I am here to tell you that. My kingdom is the true dominion and all nations shall serve me. My kingdom shall not be destroyed for it is everlasting life. It is my own everlasting life. Let the wicked now call for their mountains and rocks to cover them. The sign of the Son of man is come. Let the nations grieve, for no man will buy their merchandise anymore. No one will accept their lying reports.
The next day the fulfillment of that prophecy came to pass. It was the token and evidence that what is happening in the earth and in this land of Travesser is of the Father. The God of heaven has taken the work into His own hands and it will be accomplished no matter what vain man imagines to do. The time of God's judgment has come and it would be well for man to yield to Him and receive His judgments rather than resist them and be offended at them. One need only to look at history to see how the judgments of God unfold.
In the prophecy of the two witnesses, it says: "And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them." In our congregation we have often wondered what this could mean. One of the horns (powers) of the beast is the media, and we felt that perhaps the news media would come out to us, and begin to make war against us, as it has often done with others who were an offending power in the earth and who did not go along with the norms of society. We thought that the beast might come in this way and that the killing would be the killing of the reputation of the witnesses. We did not know, since Father had not told us yet. It was interesting for us to note, however, that the very day News4 came to question us, and to do a story about us, the moon was in Cetus the sea monster in the heavens. The moon is the Biblical representation of the church, for the church reflects the sun (Son). In the heavenly sign, this sea monster beast is seen coming against the Ram (Aries) and the Bull (Taurus) in the heavens. These signs are the representations of the work of Messiah. Messiah came the first time as the Lamb, and now the second time as the Bull. Pisces the fish, represents change and when things are in confusion. The moon was in Cetus at the very moment the news crew arrived. After the news crew left us, the moon left Cetus. It was an awesome sign in the heavens. Secondly, the prophecy stated that the beast would appear right after the witnesses finished their testimony. The media arrived just 21 days after the Witnesses posted their last statement to the world. In the Scriptures, 21 days has been seen used for the processing of new events.
We have nothing more to proclaim at this point concerning this. We cannot say what the outcome will look like, but the Father's careful warnings to us have not gone unheeded. We are ready for whatever kind of "death" this beast may bring, because there is more to the prophecy that connects this beast's appearance with the final glorification of the witnesses. They will ascend into the heavens.
I am not here to bring any railing accusation against the earth. I have come only to fulfill my Father's words to me. I only say what I see my Father do. I am not the judge of the nations, but truly my Father is, and He will bring to pass the perfection of His will. If I do not speak, and if I do not do what He gives me, the rocks would cry out. The volcanoes would all go off proclaiming the judgment of the most high God. So, woe to you, Oh earth, not because of what I have said, but because the devil has come down upon you in great wrath. You think your war against the nations is a just cause, but you will only see that it is the cause that will end the nations and bring everything to its conclusion.
Now you have your questions answered. Now you know what this cult is all about. It is the sign of the Son of man in the heavens, and all the nations mourn, for it is written:
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Matt. 24:30.
As far as this cult goes, we will continue to help each other, and bless each other. We will continue to rejoice in our Father's good graces. We will continue to sing His praises. We will continue to live together in safety, for it is written: "In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The Lord our righteousness." Jer. 33:16.
I watched the news report in regards to our "cult" and thought that it was about what I expected. When Jesus graced this planet, 2000 years ago, there was an element of fear in regard to Him. Jesus said, "Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day." John 6:54. This statement caused quite a stir, and He lost most of his disciples at that time. Jesus asked His remaining 12, if they were leaving also. Of course He didn't mean cannibalism when He said what He said, but that is the spin they put on it.
He said things about the temple that got people stirred up also. "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up," He said. That got Him in very big trouble and it was one of the evidences against Him for His crucifixion. The world cannot understand the Spirit and has no knowledge of real things in regard to life.
They lied about Jesus as men have lied about me, but I know they cannot help it, for it is written:
And then shall that Wicked be exposed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thess. 2:8-11.
The world cannot help but believe a lie about this Woman in the wilderness, since they have been turned over to a strong delusion. It is purposed. This can also be seen with the President's fixation on Iraq, and the supposed weapons of mass destruction that Iraq possesses. The media and the political arena see Iraq as a grand cult, but the western powers cannot see their own "cultness" at all. It is all part of God sending them strong delusion, so that they might believe a lie and enter into their own self destruction. This is now happening.
The media reported that the state police had told them that Michael made everyone give him all of their money to come to Travesser. I had to smile over that one, and the people here laughed over it, for any reasonable soul would know that that is a ridiculous assumption. If I made them give me all of their money, then how is it that they bought trailers, cars, computers, clothes and food? How is it that they buy propane and pay their phone bill, electric bill and Internet connection bill? Sometimes the ones who spread the reports are so far from reality, it amazes heaven that they can even concoct such thoughts, but, then again, when one is made to believe a strong delusion, he will believe anything. He cannot help it, even against strong evidence.
The police were quoted as saying they were basically concerned about the children. This statement did concern me very much, for that was what was said about the Branch Davidian children, and everyone knows what happened to them. Janet Reno was "very concerned about the children" and that was the end of them. When the children asked the FBI if they were going to come in and kill them, the FBI said no. Well, all that is history now. I truly feel concerned when government states that they are only looking out for people. That is usually the precursor to some serious mistakes. The U.S. is working hard to help the people of Iraq, to overthrow their "dictator" even though they elected him with a 100% majority of votes. No U.S. president has ever gotten anywhere near that percentage. I shudder to think of the results of all this caring. Men simply do not know themselves. They do not know their own motivations and that they are basically wrong.
The suicide story seems to be the rock, supporting the whole pile of imaginations. I told them plainly that suicide is not part of the equation. So, why is it they seem so fixated on that? It is because they have been made to believe a lie. They have been turned over to the father of lies, and they cannot help themselves. It is truly pitiful. Nowhere do the prophecies state that God's people commit suicide. But the prophecies do say something very definitive. They say, "And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him [Michael] that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles [magically changed the truth about things into a lie] before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone." Rev. 19:19-20.
The beast in Scripture refers to civil government. The false prophet is connected with the beast, and in this case it is those who report falsely concerning this movement of God. The media prophesies falsely and these two forces come against Michael who rides upon the horse. It was the beast (Rome) and the false prophet (religious authorities) of Christ's day that killed Him. In this case the Scriptures record that they are both cast into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. The prophecy says nothing about God's people committing suicide here, but the Scriptures do say a lot about that "Wicked" or lawless one, who will be exposed. That exposing is occurring at this precise moment.
The media reported on the 1260 prophecy that has been referred to, as some kind of marker for what we are going to do. The 1260 day prophecy does not mention suicide, nor does it mention the end of the world. We see the end of this prophecy to come at Pentecost 2004. We have never stated that it means suicide, but the media must enter into its delusional picture because in their world, men do commit suicide sometimes, when their expectations are not met. They take things into their own hands. The world can only interpret current events according to their own dysfunctional and codependent existence. It is sad to see, but I know there is no other way for them to interpret events. It is the nature of the beast, for its leader is Satan, and they can only see through the glasses he puts astride their noses. I am sorry to see this, but it is the nature of the world. When I say "Satan" I am not indicating that these folks are especially evil. All I mean is that they see things like he sees them. The earth is full of fear over just about anything that can be imagined, and fear comes from evil.
The state police said that they were "watching" us in order to keep us from committing suicide. I had to smile at this one also. If we were a suicide cult, how on earth could anyone living 85 miles from us, stop us from terminating ourselves. We could call the police and tell them of our suicide, pull it off, be long dead, before the police ever arrived. "Watching" us would have no effect whatever. All of this fixation on suicide, makes me suspect them of somehow desiring that we do commit suicide. What one wants, is what one thinks about a lot. I would counsel these different agencies to not hold their breath waiting for us to commit suicide, or they will be long dead before we would even think of it.
The media and the police are not alone in their fears. Actually, they were sent by average citizens who called them and communicated their own fears. There were others in the religious world who contacted them also. The forces of unbelievers, marked with the mark of the beast, press the civil authorities to carry out their purposes against this woman in the wilderness. It is the nature of man to fear, and to project his fears upon others. This is how the earth destroys itself. It believes in its fears, and it brings the fears it believes in to pass, for it is written: "I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not." Isa. 66:4.
The Scripture comes to my mind, "For I heard the defaming of many, fear on every side. Report, say they, and we will report it. All my familiars watched for my halting, saying, Peradventure he will be enticed [to commit suicide], and we shall prevail against him, and we shall take our revenge on him." Jer. 20:10.
When the reporters came to my house, they told me that they wanted to put the public mind at ease, and to show them that I was very "normal" as they had found me to be. They said that they had contacted the FBI and the FBI told them that they did not see any problem here. What was reported on their nightly telecast did not reflect these statements. If we were such an unstable community, ready to drink Kool-Aid at the drop of a hat, would a lonely man and woman come out all by themselves to do a story on us? If we were considered dangerous, would not they have brought some protection? I do not think they actually believe their own story.
I want to leave this present reasoning and go on to the real issue. We are here for a purpose, and it was the Father in heaven Who brought us here. This movement in the wilderness is not about me. I just follow Father's unfolding instructions to me, as do those who are here with me. It is the Father in heaven Who is orchestrating all of our events. The prophecies are coming to pass and also the signs in the heavens, at our Father's unfolding.
When Jesus graced the earth, He was asked when He would be coming again. He said that He didn't know, and that the angels didn't know. He said that only the Father in heaven knew that. So it is with me. I cannot say what will happen at the end of the 1260 days. I cannot say what will happen before then. Only my Father in heaven knows these things. He unfolds them, and we follow at the time they are unfolded. When He speaks into us our change, we will then change, but we do not know the timing of that event. When it occurs, we will see that it is all perfect.
Our very presence judges the nations, for if I am who I say that I am, it spells the end of the world, and the opening of the heavens for those who are bound to enter there. For one to enter into the heavens, he would naturally have to receive me as the One promised for the message that I share would have to be embraced as his own message. He would have to see me as the sign of the Son of man for him to be partaker of this experience for himself. If the people do not believe me, they will not believe for themselves.
The world has an investment in seeing me fail, for it would justify their insane behavior, but I will not fail the task given me of my heavenly Father. I will not fail or be discouraged. The prophecy will be fulfilled, and it will be fulfilled on time and in time. The beast has now come against the Woman in the wilderness as was prophesied, and the false prophet has come against her also. They are seeking to kill her influence. But it will be seen that those who fight against us, are fighting against the Heavenly Father, and He is the One Who will protect His Own interests.
It is written: "And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child, [Michael]. ... And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments (instructions) of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ [They have the testimony that Jesus Christ had] Rev. 12.
Webster says that persecute means: To harass in a manner designed to injure, grieve, or afflict; specifically : to cause to suffer because of belief. 2 : to annoy with persistent or urgent approaches (as attacks, pleas, or importunities) : PESTER.
Right on time, and right at the moment prophesied, the false prophet who is an arm of the beast, came and began "grieving" the Woman. How wonderful to see the fulfillment of the Scriptures and the signs in the heavens. This gives us confidence, for it reveals that Father's word is perfectly outlined as to the events coming to pass. Truly, nothing occurs without our Father. Even the earth cannot help but to carry out His purposes.
The news anchor stated, that we believed in a "literal" interpretation of the Bible. He was correct in that. Tell me now, is that one of our crimes?
In a vision of the night, I was in the process of common work, when suddenly I realized a revolution in the land had commenced. I left my work and traveled away from my home, only to remember I had left something back where I had come from. I was considering going back to get it, when I remembered the verse of Scripture that said, not to go back, even for my coat. I left the city where the violence had commenced.
After I had awakened, I read the full text of Osama bin Laden's, "Letter to America." It was a significant letter, since it voiced the message of judgment, reiterating each complaint the nations have against America. It reminded me of Jesus' last rebuke to the Scribes and Pharisees in Matthew 23. The verse of Scripture that came to me is: "Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith the Lord: it is a mighty nation, it is an ancient nation, a nation whose language thou knowest not, neither understandest what they say." Jer. 5:15. In the Scriptures that nation spoken of was Babylon. That ancient city rests in the heart of the Muslim world.
I saw the nature of the oppression coming back upon the king of oppression. The complaints in the letter against America are valid, but the expectations for resolution are unfulfillable. The Father Himself would not support them. The same unreasonable demands America is making to Iraq, are now made to America. I marvel at how the earth has been set up for destruction. What an awesome sight to behold. I have included the letter I refer to, below. It includes most of the things we have warned America about over the past 7 years.
There is one sense of all these things that I now have stronger than before. I feel strongly the sorrow of the Father over having to permit the destruction of the one who destroys. Father's love pours out in His judgment, and it is as though I see His tears, and great restraint, at the same time the judgment must be unleashed. The Father warned Israel for over 100 years that Babylon would come for them, before Babylon actually came. Surely, no one can fault the Father's awesome patience in regard to these final things. It seems that Father delays, after years of threatening, but if one could only feel His heart, he would understand the delay.
As I write, the sun has left the Balances, and now is in the head of the Scorpion. Webster's Dictionary says of the Scorpion: "A scourge probably studded with metal. Something that incites to action like the sting of an insect." We saw this occur in very recent days, when the Son of God was accosted by the tail of the scorpion that stings. In the Scriptures, this represents a false prophet: "The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail." Isa. 9:15. In the form of the media, the scorpion's false prophesying of suicide, and its false views of the appearing of the Son of God on the earth, was perpetrated as the truth, in an attempt to discredit Him. Now we see the Son enter the place of the scorpion, burning its head with His great light.
The scorpion has a close companion. It is Ophiuchus, the snake handler. This one is, "the ancient and honorable." This sign in the heavens has historically been connected with the world's healing arts. The serpent here is the serpent used for the symbol of modern medicine. Ophiuchus was the one who handled snakes and poison to heal those who came to him for healing. In the world of politics, this snake handler who stands upon the scorpion, has a potion that heals slightly. "For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace." Jer. 8:11. It would be like the doctor who would say, Health, health, when there was no health. He would profess to heal, but would not heal. This is the nature of the current world. People are saying peace, when planning for war.
The heavenly sign of Scorpio is linked with the Balances, and Ophiuchus, the snake handler. In the heavens the scorpion is getting his head (honorable and aged statesmen) exposed by the light of the sun that appears. The serpent is in the hands of Ophiuchus. The serpent is reaching for the crown named, Corona Borealis, which is connected to the constellation Hercules, "the one who is its rightful possessor." The serpent reaches for the crown through its magic arts of persuasion and manipulation. At this time both of the nations at war reach for the crown by using these means of mixing truth with error. They are racing for the victory, but they will all come to their end. The snake handler will be defeated and the scorpion destroyed in the fire of Michael's appearing.
The judgment is in the land and clearly elucidated, graphically described, and this description comes from "a nation whose language" the offender does not understand. These things are found in Osama bin Laden's 'letter to America'
Sunday November 24, 2002
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,
"Permission to fight (against disbelievers) is given to those (believers) who are fought against, because they have been wronged and surely, Allah is Able to give them (believers) victory" [Quran 22:39]
"Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Taghut (anything worshipped other than Allah e.g. Satan). So fight you against the friends of Satan; ever feeble is indeed the plot of Satan."[Quran 4:76]
Some American writers have published articles under the title 'On what basis are we fighting?' These articles have generated a number of responses, some of which adhered to the truth and were based on Islamic Law, and others which have not. Here we wanted to outline the truth - as an explanation and warning - hoping for Allah's reward, seeking success and support from Him.
While seeking Allah's help, we form our reply based on two questions directed at the Americans:
(Q1) Why are we fighting and opposing you?
(Q2)What are we calling you to, and what do we want from you?
As for the first question: Why are we fighting and opposing you? The answer is very simple:
(1) Because you attacked us and continue to attack us.
a) You attacked us in Palestine:
(i) Palestine, which has sunk under military occupation for more than 80 years. The British handed over Palestine, with your help and your support, to the Jews, who have occupied it for more than 50 years; years overflowing with oppression, tyranny, crimes, killing, expulsion, destruction and devastation. The creation and continuation of Israel is one of the greatest crimes, and you are the leaders of its criminals. And of course there is no need to explain and prove the degree of American support for Israel. The creation of Israel is a crime which must be erased. Each and every person whose hands have become polluted in the contribution towards this crime must pay its price, and pay for it heavily.
(ii) It brings us both laughter and tears to see that you have not yet tired of repeating your fabricated lies that the Jews have a historical right to Palestine, as it was promised to them in the Torah. Anyone who disputes with them on this alleged fact is accused of anti-semitism. This is one of the most fallacious, widely-circulated fabrications in history. The people of Palestine are pure Arabs and original Semites. It is the Muslims who are the inheritors of Moses (peace be upon him) and the inheritors of the real Torah that has not been changed. Muslims believe in all of the Prophets, including Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon them all. If the followers of Moses have been promised a right to Palestine in the Torah, then the Muslims are the most worthy nation of this.
When the Muslims conquered Palestine and drove out the Romans, Palestine and Jerusalem returned to Islaam, the religion of all the Prophets peace be upon them. Therefore, the call to a historical right to Palestine cannot be raised against the Islamic Ummah that believes in all the Prophets of Allah (peace and blessings be upon them) - and we make no distinction between them.
(iii) The blood pouring out of Palestine must be equally revenged. You must know that the Palestinians do not cry alone; their women are not widowed alone; their sons are not orphaned alone.
(b) You attacked us in Somalia; you supported the Russian atrocities against us in Chechnya, the Indian oppression against us in Kashmir, and the Jewish aggression against us in Lebanon.
(c) Under your supervision, consent and orders, the governments of our countries which act as your agents, attack us on a daily basis;
(i) These governments prevent our people from establishing the Islamic Shariah, using violence and lies to do so.
(ii) These governments give us a taste of humiliation, and places us in a large prison of fear and subdual.
(iii) These governments steal our Ummah's wealth and sell them to you at a paltry price.
(iv) These governments have surrendered to the Jews, and handed them most of Palestine, acknowledging the existence of their state over the dismembered limbs of their own people.
(v) The removal of these governments is an obligation upon us, and a necessary step to free the Ummah, to make the Shariah the supreme law and to regain Palestine. And our fight against these governments is not separate from our fight against you.
(d) You steal our wealth and oil at paltry prices because of your international influence and military threats. This theft is indeed the biggest theft ever witnessed by mankind in the history of the world.
(e) Your forces occupy our countries; you spread your military bases throughout them; you corrupt our lands, and you besiege our sanctities, to protect the security of the Jews and to ensure the continuity of your pillage of our treasures.
(f) You have starved the Muslims of Iraq, where children die every day. It is a wonder that more than 1.5 million Iraqi children have died as a result of your sanctions, and you did not show concern. Yet when 3000 of your people died, the entire world rises and has not yet sat down.
(g) You have supported the Jews in their idea that Jerusalem is their eternal capital, and agreed to move your embassy there. With your help and under your protection, the Israelis are planning to destroy the Al-Aqsa mosque. Under the protection of your weapons, Sharon entered the Al-Aqsa mosque, to pollute it as a preparation to capture and destroy it.
(2) These tragedies and calamities are only a few examples of your oppression and aggression against us. It is commanded by our religion and intellect that the oppressed have a right to return the aggression. Do not await anything from us but Jihad, resistance and revenge. Is it in any way rational to expect that after America has attacked us for more than half a century, that we will then leave her to live in security and peace?!!
(3) You may then dispute that all the above does not justify aggression against civilians, for crimes they did not commit and offenses in which they did not partake:
(a) This argument contradicts your continuous repetition that America is the land of freedom, and its leaders in this world. Therefore, the American people are the ones who choose their government by way of their own free will; a choice which stems from their agreement to its policies. Thus the American people have chosen, consented to, and affirmed their support for the Israeli oppression of the Palestinians, the occupation and usurpation of their land, and its continuous killing, torture, punishment and expulsion of the Palestinians. The American people have the ability and choice to refuse the policies of their Government and even to change it if they want.
(b) The American people are the ones who pay the taxes which fund the planes that bomb us in Afghanistan, the tanks that strike and destroy our homes in Palestine, the armies which occupy our lands in the Arabian Gulf, and the fleets which ensure the blockade of Iraq. These tax dollars are given to Israel for it to continue to attack us and penetrate our lands. So the American people are the ones who fund the attacks against us, and they are the ones who oversee the expenditure of these monies in the way they wish, through their elected candidates.
(c) Also the American army is part of the American people. It is this very same people who are shamelessly helping the Jews fight against us.
(d) The American people are the ones who employ both their men and their women in the American Forces which attack us.
(e) This is why the American people cannot be not innocent of all the crimes committed by the Americans and Jews against us.
(f) Allah, the Almighty, legislated the permission and the option to take revenge. Thus, if we are attacked, then we have the right to attack back. Whoever has destroyed our villages and towns, then we have the right to destroy their villages and towns. Whoever has stolen our wealth, then we have the right to destroy their economy. And whoever has killed our civilians, then we have the right to kill theirs.
The American Government and press still refuses to answer the question:
Why did they attack us in New York and Washington?
If Sharon is a man of peace in the eyes of Bush, then we are also men of peace!!! America does not understand the language of manners and principles, so we are addressing it using the language it understands.
(Q2) As for the second question that we want to answer: What are we calling you to, and what do we want from you?
(1) The first thing that we are calling you to is Islam.
(a) The religion of the Unification of God; of freedom from associating partners with Him, and rejection of this; of complete love of Him, the Exalted; of complete submission to His Laws; and of the discarding of all the opinions, orders, theories and religions which contradict with the religion He sent down to His Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Islam is the religion of all the prophets, and makes no distinction between them - peace be upon them all.
It is to this religion that we call you; the seal of all the previous religions. It is the religion of Unification of God, sincerity, the best of manners, righteousness, mercy, honour, purity, and piety. It is the religion of showing kindness to others, establishing justice between them, granting them their rights, and defending the oppressed and the persecuted. It is the religion of enjoining the good and forbidding the evil with the hand, tongue and heart. It is the religion of Jihad in the way of Allah so that Allah's Word and religion reign Supreme. And it is the religion of unity and agreement on the obedience to Allah, and total equality between all people, without regarding their colour, sex, or language.
(b) It is the religion whose book - the Quran - will remained preserved and unchanged, after the other Divine books and messages have been changed. The Quran is the miracle until the Day of Judgment. Allah has challenged anyone to bring a book like the Quran or even ten verses like it.
(2) The second thing we call you to, is to stop your oppression, lies, immorality and debauchery that has spread among you.
(a) We call you to be a people of manners, principles, honour, and purity; to reject the immoral acts of fornication, homosexuality, intoxicants, gambling's, and trading with interest.
We call you to all of this that you may be freed from that which you have become caught up in; that you may be freed from the deceptive lies that you are a great nation, that your leaders spread amongst you to conceal from you the despicable state to which you have reached.
(b) It is saddening to tell you that you are the worst civilization witnessed by the history of mankind:
(i) You are the nation who, rather than ruling by the Shariah of Allah in its Constitution and Laws, choose to invent your own laws as you will and desire. You separate religion from your policies, contradicting the pure nature which affirms Absolute Authority to the Lord and your Creator. You flee from the embarrassing question posed to you: How is it possible for Allah the Almighty to create His creation, grant them power over all the creatures and land, grant them all the amenities of life, and then deny them that which they are most in need of: knowledge of the laws which govern their lives?
(ii) You are the nation that permits Usury, which has been forbidden by all the religions. Yet you build your economy and investments on Usury. As a result of this, in all its different forms and guises, the Jews have taken control of your economy, through which they have then taken control of your media, and now control all aspects of your life making you their servants and achieving their aims at your expense; precisely what Benjamin Franklin warned you against.
(iii) You are a nation that permits the production, trading and usage of intoxicants. You also permit drugs, and only forbid the trade of them, even though your nation is the largest consumer of them.
(iv) You are a nation that permits acts of immorality, and you consider them to be pillars of personal freedom. You have continued to sink down this abyss from level to level until incest has spread amongst you, in the face of which neither your sense of honour nor your laws object.
Who can forget your President Clinton's immoral acts committed in the official Oval office? After that you did not even bring him to account, other than that he 'made a mistake', after which everything passed with no punishment. Is there a worse kind of event for which your name will go down in history and remembered by nations?
(v) You are a nation that permits gambling in its all forms. The companies practice this as well, resulting in the investments becoming active and the criminals becoming rich.
(vi) You are a nation that exploits women like consumer products or advertising tools calling upon customers to purchase them. You use women to serve passengers, visitors, and strangers to increase your profit margins. You then rant that you support the liberation of women.
(vii) You are a nation that practices the trade of sex in all its forms, directly and indirectly. Giant corporations and establishments are established on this, under the name of art, entertainment, tourism and freedom, and other deceptive names you attribute to it.
(viii) And because of all this, you have been described in history as a nation that spreads diseases that were unknown to man in the past. Go ahead and boast to the nations of man, that you brought them AIDS as a Satanic American Invention.
(xi) You have destroyed nature with your industrial waste and gases more than any other nation in history. Despite this, you refuse to sign the Kyoto agreement so that you can secure the profit of your greedy companies and industries.
(x) Your law is the law of the rich and wealthy people, who hold sway in their political parties, and fund their election campaigns with their gifts. Behind them stand the Jews, who control your policies, media and economy.
(xi) That which you are singled out for in the history of mankind, is that you have used your force to destroy mankind more than any other nation in history; not to defend principles and values, but to hasten to secure your interests and profits. You who dropped a nuclear bomb on Japan, even though Japan was ready to negotiate an end to the war. How many acts of oppression, tyranny and injustice have you carried out, O callers to freedom?
(xii) Let us not forget one of your major characteristics: your duality in both manners and values; your hypocrisy in manners and principles. All manners, principles and values have two scales: one for you and one for the others.
(a)The freedom and democracy that you call to is for yourselves and for white race only; as for the rest of the world, you impose upon them your monstrous, destructive policies and Governments, which you call the 'American friends'. Yet you prevent them from establishing democracies. When the Islamic party in Algeria wanted to practice democracy and they won the election, you unleashed your agents in the Algerian army onto them, and to attack them with tanks and guns, to imprison them and torture them - a new lesson from the 'American book of democracy'!!!
(b)Your policy on prohibiting and forcibly removing weapons of mass destruction to ensure world peace: it only applies to those countries which you do not permit to possess such weapons. As for the countries you consent to, such as Israel, then they are allowed to keep and use such weapons to defend their security. Anyone else who you suspect might be manufacturing or keeping these kinds of weapons, you call them criminals and you take military action against them.
(c)You are the last ones to respect the resolutions and policies of International Law, yet you claim to want to selectively punish anyone else who does the same. Israel has for more than 50 years been pushing UN resolutions and rules against the wall with the full support of America.
(d)As for the war criminals which you censure and form criminal courts for - you shamelessly ask that your own are granted immunity!! However, history will not forget the war crimes that you committed against the Muslims and the rest of the world; those you have killed in Japan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Lebanon and Iraq will remain a shame that you will never be able to escape. It will suffice to remind you of your latest war crimes in Afghanistan, in which densely populated innocent civilian villages were destroyed, bombs were dropped on mosques causing the roof of the mosque to come crashing down on the heads of the Muslims praying inside. You are the ones who broke the agreement with the Mujahideen when they left Qunduz, bombing them in Jangi fort, and killing more than 1,000 of your prisoners through suffocation and thirst. Allah alone knows how many people have died by torture at the hands of you and your agents. Your planes remain in the Afghan skies, looking for anyone remotely suspicious.
(e)You have claimed to be the vanguards of Human Rights, and your Ministry of Foreign affairs issues annual reports containing statistics of those countries that violate any Human Rights. However, all these things vanished when the Mujahideen hit you, and you then implemented the methods of the same documented governments that you used to curse. In America, you captured thousands the Muslims and Arabs, took them into custody with neither reason, court trial, nor even disclosing their names. You issued newer, harsher laws.
What happens in Guatanamo is a historical embarrassment to America and its values, and it screams into your faces - you hypocrites, "What is the value of your signature on any agreement or treaty?"
(3) What we call you to thirdly is to take an honest stance with yourselves - and I doubt you will do so - to discover that you are a nation without principles or manners, and that the values and principles to you are something which you merely demand from others, not that which you yourself must adhere to.
(4) We also advise you to stop supporting Israel, and to end your support of the Indians in Kashmir, the Russians against the Chechens and to also cease supporting the Manila Government against the Muslims in Southern Philippines.
(5) We also advise you to pack your luggage and get out of our lands. We desire for your goodness, guidance, and righteousness, so do not force us to send you back as cargo in coffins.
(6) Sixthly, we call upon you to end your support of the corrupt leaders in our countries. Do not interfere in our politics and method of education. Leave us alone, or else expect us in New York and Washington.
(7) We also call you to deal with us and interact with us on the basis of mutual interests and benefits, rather than the policies of sub dual, theft and occupation, and not to continue your policy of supporting the Jews because this will result in more disasters for you.
If you fail to respond to all these conditions, then prepare for fight with the Islamic Nation. The Nation of Monotheism, that puts complete trust on Allah and fears none other than Him. The Nation which is addressed by its Quran with the words: "Do you fear them? Allah has more right that you should fear Him if you are believers. Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of believing people. And remove the anger of their (believers') hearts. Allah accepts the repentance of whom He wills. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise." [Quran9:13-1]
The Nation of honour and respect:
"But honour, power and glory belong to Allah, and to His Messenger (Muhammad- peace be upon him) and to the believers." [Quran 63:8]
"So do not become weak (against your enemy), nor be sad, and you will be superior ( in victory )if you are indeed (true) believers" [Quran 3:139]
The Nation of Martyrdom; the Nation that desires death more than you desire life:
"Think not of those who are killed in the way of Allah as dead. Nay, they are alive with their Lord, and they are being provided for. They rejoice in what Allah has bestowed upon them from His bounty and rejoice for the sake of those who have not yet joined them, but are left behind (not yet martyred) that on them no fear shall come, nor shall they grieve. They rejoice in a grace and a bounty from Allah, and that Allah will not waste the reward of the believers." [Quran 3:169-171]
The Nation of victory and success that Allah has promised:
"It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad peace be upon him) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), to make it victorious over all other religions even though the Polytheists hate it." [Quran 61:9]
"Allah has decreed that 'Verily it is I and My Messengers who shall be victorious.' Verily Allah is All-Powerful, All-Mighty." [Quran 58:21]
The Islamic Nation that was able to dismiss and destroy the previous evil Empires like yourself; the Nation that rejects your attacks, wishes to remove your evils, and is prepared to fight you. You are well aware that the Islamic Nation, from the very core of its soul, despises your haughtiness and arrogance.
If the Americans refuse to listen to our advice and the goodness, guidance and righteousness that we call them to, then be aware that you will lose this Crusade Bush began, just like the other previous Crusades in which you were humiliated by the hands of the Mujahideen, fleeing to your home in great silence and disgrace. If the Americans do not respond, then their fate will be that of the Soviets who fled from Afghanistan to deal with their military defeat, political breakup, ideological downfall, and economic bankruptcy.
This is our message to the Americans, as an answer to theirs. Do they now know why we fight them and over which form of ignorance, by the permission of Allah, we shall be victorious?
Occasionally in nature, a great eagle is found dead, with a snake in its talons. The eagle is far more agile than the snake, and can see it afar off. Sometimes when a great bird takes on the snake, and attacks it from high in the heavens, the serpent will strike the eagle in a very vulnerable place. Both the snake and the eagle end up on the desert floor, dead.
There is no greater terror, and no greater enemy, than a self-righteous one who picks at the flesh of another. There is no greater justice in all the earth, than to bring one self-righteous opponent against another self-righteous opponent. There can be no war more bloody, and there can be no war with more dire consequences. It is better to come against an "evil" tyrant, than for two "good forces" in their own eyes, to come against each other in retribution. Woe to the foes who come together in the name of God, in vengeance. Neither of these powers will spare until all those outside of themselves are eradicated. This spells the end for both sides. Jesus said, Where the corpse is [those without life], there the eagles will be gathered together [picking on it]. Luke 17:37.
In the heavens, next to Ophiuchus, and just above the goat, is the eagle, Aquila. In mythology, Jupiter had the eagle kill Ophiuchus, the serpent handler, because he was treading upon the realm of nature and changing nature, promising eternal life to those who were not worthy of it. He also was convicted of the most high judge, Jupiter, for not allowing his natural processes to proceed, but wanted to take the prerogatives of God upon himself. He adulterated the truth with a lie. For so long a time, America was the preacher of justice, but now the nation has taken the prerogatives of God upon itself. "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." 2 Thess. 2:4.
The eagle was to expose unfaithfulness and the lie, but now the eagle itself is judged. It has an arrow in its wing for becoming a pesty bird picking at the flesh of others and using their flesh for its own purposes. Now it is falling to the earth with its mortal wound. The eagle, Aquila, was known as the bird of the gods. It was Jupiter's bird in his great wars, who carried his thunderbolt to any enemy. He was a faithful bird and admired by all who beheld him. The time came when the eagle fell, and his days ended, when the arrow of Hercules, the "One who comes," pierced it. The eagle had been picking at the flesh of other powers in the heavens and was no more tolerated. America was once known in the earth for its virtue and right principles. It was called a "Christian country." It was in the garden of God, with all of the privileges pertaining to it. Never was there a nation, with a profession more perfect in beauty from the day it was created than this one, which is represented by the eagle. When a profession of truth is no more supported by the one professing it, it "stinketh."
Benjamin Franklin wrote:
I wish that the bald eagle had not been chosen as the representative of our country, he is a bird of bad moral character, he does not get his living honestly, you may have seen him perched on some dead tree, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the labor of the fishing-hawk, and when that diligent bird has at length taken a fish, and is bearing it to its nest for the support of his mate and young ones, the bald eagle pursues him and takes it from him.... Besides he is a rank coward; the little kingbird, not bigger than a sparrow attacks him boldly and drives him out of the district. He is therefore by no means a proper emblem for the brave and honest. . . of America.. . . For a truth, the turkey is in comparison a much more respectable bird, and withal a true original native of America . . . a bird of courage, and would not hesitate to attack a grenadier of the British guards, who should presume to invade his farmyard with a red coat on.
The eagle was the only bird to land upon the moon. It stretched out its wings upon the whole earth and was known for a profession of Father's justice. But now it is fallen, an arrow in its side, shot from the bow of Hercules, "The Coming One." This is in reference to "The sign of the Son of man." This has been done because the eagle's actions have changed, and its past principles given up. In other imagery as well, the Scriptures foretell this change from a lamblike beast to a dragon beast. It is written: "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon." Rev. 13:11. Today, this beast represents itself as an eagle but he speaks as a dragon.
Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more. Eze. 28:12-19.
Thy terribleness hath deceived thee, and the pride of thine heart, O thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, that holdest the height of the hill: though thou shouldest make thy nest as high as the eagle, I will bring thee down from thence, saith the Lord. Jer. 49:16.
To those who are friends of God, it is written:
Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee; When I have bent Judah for me, filled the bow with Ephraim, and raised up thy sons, O Zion, against thy sons, O Greece, and made thee as the sword of a mighty man [Hercules, the portent of the coming one]. And the Lord shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the Lord GOD shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south. The Lord of hosts shall defend them; and they shall devour, and subdue with sling stones; and they shall drink, and make a noise as through wine; and they shall be filled like bowls, and as the corners of the altar. And the Lord their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land. Zech. 9:12-16.
How do these things effect us in our small community? These things I have mentioned concerning the coming war, are only the manifestation of the natural man. It is this spirit that destroys families, and breaks down the sweet fellowship of neighbors. It separates brethren, and ruins the sweet rest in the soul. We are now seeing the events which reveal that the Spirit of our Father is removed from the earth. The earth has cast Him out and replaced Him with their own righteousness. They cannot, and will not see, that there is a God in heaven Who rules, and He rules with justice. This is the spirit from which we have separated. This spirit cannot be convinced to "let My people go," since it believes that it has a right to keep them hostage to its will. But, I say again, Let My people go. The whole earth will soon see more of the plagues that fall upon those who have refused to release those who are drawn of my Father. The revolution in the earth has begun. Do not go back to take anything with you, not even the people whom you have "owned," and not anything you have previously used as a covering.
