"The world is going to become a different place from now on" (Ehud Barak, September 11th 2001).
Did the millions of people across the world listening to that statement appreciate the sinister implications which lay behind it? There is a profound need for us to realise that the recent murderous destruction of the World Trade Centre in New York and the Pentagon in Washington was not merely a retributional terrorist attack of Middle Eastern origin, but that it really represented a quantum leap in the activities of the shadow governmental power in order to achieve its objectives.
But what ARE those objectives?
The long-term primary objective of the shadow governmental power (which some people also call the "Illuminati") is a dictatorial global government which could have come straight off the pages of Orwell's superb book, "1984". This astonishing goal is something about which most people on the planet have not the faintest idea. They could very easily obtain more than the faintest idea, if only they would wake up and look at history, at the mass of credible literature available, at world events and begin to think for themselves instead of simply eating and drinking everything which the controlled media feeds them. The main reason that they don't have the faintest idea about what the shadow governmental power is doing is because they have been brainwashed by the newspapers, magazines, TV and films which have been manufactured and censored by the same shadow governmental power!
Just like Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, the IRA, Saddam Hussein, etc., modern terrorists have been allowed to flourish for a purpose -- a profound historical purpose. Their purpose is to create the right conditions for the establishment of a one-world government (cleverly disguised at first). There are a number of conditions which are necessary for the creation of such a government. Catastrophes such as today's and other future disasters (natural and manmade), plus related stock market crashes, are part of those conditions. However, things have moved into a much higher gear today. But this is just the beginning of the big stuff in the realm of unfolding events. This is what we have been waiting for. Those who understand, know... and wait... It is indeed the truth that "the world is going to become a different place from now on", but the differences are nothing like what many may imagine to be the case. How much education there is needed if we are to be ready for "the shape of things to come".
Now you may say that you live in a democratic country and that the United Nations is made up of democratic countries and that the members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation are democratic countries and that these democratic countries would never allow a dictatorial world government power to come into being. After all, they are continually speaking about the need for the "free world to unite against the forces of fascism and repression". But that is where the great deception comes in. Allow me to explain...
You see, my friends, the big trick -- the really big trick -- is to bring a one-world fascist totalitarian government to pass in such a way that no one realises it is happening. The only way such a deception can happen is on a drip-by-drip basis. So each time a little repressive measure is brought in, we will be told that it is in the interests of "freedom and democracy" and we will all accept it. After the installation of a great many little repressive measures, a totalitarian world state will have been established by stealth, and this is where the world is heading now.
In fact, this is where the world has been heading almost since the beginning of its history. For the battle between the forces of good and evil, which we see commencing in the story of the Garden of Eden (Gen.3:1-6), will culminate in the establishment of a fascist, totalitarian one-world government under the leadership of a totally lawless man (2 Thess.2:3-10) to whom power and authority will have been delegated by the leader of the spiritual forces of darkness (Rev.13:1-2) whom Christians have traditionally called the Devil, Satan or — more appropriately today — Lucifer.
Only then will the true weakness of the forces of darkness and the full power of the forces of goodness be fully revealed for all to see. For it will be shown that real power does not lie in political or worldly achievements -- no matter how grandiose they might be. And POWER is what this is all about. The Illuminati -- the shadow world government -- is all about POWER. Power over the whole world. Such power is satanic. For the only kind of power which Satan and the forces of darkness can exercise is power over the world through deception.
We need to realise that the shadow world government operates through the various organisations, cabals and conferences which control the way that governments act, the words that the media say and the way that many other decisions are taken throughout the world by such groups as the United Nations and NATO.
The shadow governmental power always has to have a big bogeyman on which to pin its supposed need for taking certain measures. These bogeymen are a pure fabrication which would have been without any substance had the shadow governmental power not given them all that they needed in order to flourish. They are allowed to flourish in order to fulfil the purpose of the Illuminati. For example, Lenin, Stalin and Hitler were financed and deliberately allowed to flourish for precisely the same reasons as Saddam Hussein has been. These men are stooges in the process leading to the coming totalitarian world government which will make all of them seem like Boy Scouts!
The shadow governmental power also always has to have a "fall guy" to cover up for its dastardly activities. When Kennedy was assassinated, it was Lee Harvey Oswald. When the community at Waco was torched by the U.S. government, it was David Koresh. After the bombing in Oklahoma, it was Timothy McVeigh. After the demolition of the World Trade Centre, it is Osama bin Laden. It is as if the script had been pre-written on each occasion. Well indeed it had! The media trots out whatever is fed to it, and then prints it out for the masses meekly to imbibe.
There is considerable evidence that the highest levels of the U.S. government, together with its security and intelligence services (e.g. CIA & FBI) knew very well that there was going to be a serious attack on a big target in the U.S.A. [See, for example, http://msn.thisislondon.co.uk/dynamic/news/top_story.html?in_review_id=456973. See also the following link, http://www.proparanoid.com/priorknowledge.htm , which shows how the war against the Taliban was planned months in advance. Or see the article "Evidence of Criminal Insider Trading Before WTC ATTACKS Leads Directly into the Highest Levels of the CIA" by Mike Ruppert on http://www.copvcia.com/ . His other articles are very revealing too. See also http://www.apfn.org/apfn/knowledge.htm for an interview with David Schippers, top Clinton impeachment lawyer, who says that the highest levels of Government had prior knowledge of the September 11th attacks].
The failure to do anything about this evidence involves far more than a mere "lapse" in efficiency of the intelligence services, as the media has been programmed to portray it to those who might be concerned on that level. The whole affair smacks of a mighty set-up. Furthermore, do you find it at all credible that the calculatingly careful and thorough men who hijacked and steered the planes to their targets would leave the following items in a hired car left at Boston's Logan airport: Instructional videos and manuals on how to operate Boeing 767s, coveralls similar to those worn by ramp workers, a copy of the Koran and a fuel consumption calculator? That's what the Illuminati-fed media is pumping out. Just how gullible do these people think we are? Well I hardly need to answer that, because they plainly think we are totally stupid!
There is a whole process of brainwashing and conditioning at work in the world which has been going on for many years. First, the Illuminati has to create the right kind of mindset in the population which renders it open to its brainwashing. They specialise in mind control (having operated actual mind-control programmes for many decades, viz. the CIA's MK Ultra "Manchurian Candidate" style of programme). Then, after they have created the right kind of mindset in the masses, they can go right ahead and do all kinds of things which would not normally be acceptable. Allow me to give a couple of examples. The Waco event was a classic in this respect. It was a kind of primer to induce people to accept passively the total annihilation of whatever religious groups are deemed unacceptable by government forces. The shadow world government needs to be free to destroy anyone who will not conform to its "global ethic"; but it has to be in such a way that Joe Public will accept it -- nay, welcome it! Waco was a great softener-up in that process. Another landmark event was the killing of Diana Spencer -- the "People's Princess". The hypnotic manner in which people responded to her death and the delusion involved in the vast outpouring of grief was a kind of "rehearsal" for later occasions when the masses need to be easily controlled by a power outside of themselves. It is in such a manner that the world dictator (the Antichrist) will be accepted by so many as a necessary leader (even by many calling themselves Christians -- and especially the one's who wear extravagant frocks!!).
The next stage in the process for which the Illuminati needs to gain acceptance is a gargantuan restriction of civil liberties and movement. The more outrageous mass killings which can be perpetrated (alongside other apocalyptic events), the more easily the powers can induce people to believe that totalitarianism is necessary -- all in the name of freedom and democracy! Last night on the BBC World Service, I heard a prominent aviation expert and magazine editor being interviewed who advocated the implantation of a micro-chip in the body which would contain one's total information, which could then be flashed automatically while passing through a screening area at airports. He said this was now being seriously considered by governments. Watch this space!
The churches are not in the least prepared for what is yet to come. In many cases they are largely responsible for bringing it about! Surely the churches bear a responsibility for the ease with which all these things are coming to pass. Do you find that surprising? One of the reasons for this is because the churches neither identify nor explain the kind of apocalyptic events which we have seen recently. The vast majority of priests, pastors, vicars, bishops and other ecclesiastical nabobs have -- either by default or design -- merely served as lackeys for the powers of darkness. All they have to offer are some mumbled prayers for the victims and their families. This is not to say that there is anything wrong with such prayer per se. It is simply that if all we have to offer is such prayers -- without any interpretation of history, without any placing of such events in a biblical and historical context -- then we are merely contributing to an emotionalism which masquerades as compassion, and the fostering of the incapacity to discern -- an inability to listen to "the music behind events". Whatever happened to the prophetic aspect of preaching?
People seem to think that Christians should simply accept whatever a government says and whatever is the accepted spin on any event. But Christians should be the most questioning of all people. It will make you unpopular in the world -- and especially in the church! It may even get you killed. But establishing Truth in an age of lies is infinitely more relevant for the Christian than playing ball with the powers of darkness. You would be surprised at the number of people around the world who are not Christians who feel very uneasy with the way that the world is going, who have realised that there is a power of corruption which is endemic in governmental circles, who know that there is an evil Illuminati at work in an occult capacity, and who are open to hearing about the True Light who has come into the world to warn and to light the way. Compromise and cowardice will never impress those who are attracted to Truth. But courage and conviction will !
Many Christians find it difficult to accept that a number of the things which they would rather regard as "internal church matters" (e.g. pentecostalism, the charismatic movement, the gnostic teachings of the so-called Word of Faith movement, liberalism, etc.), actually interface with other areas of the Conspiracy in governance and religion. I have no doubt that these "internal church matters" are every bit as much a part of the global Conspiracy as was the First Parliament of World Religions and the financing of the Russian revolution by Western bankers, etc. They are all deceptions leading in the same ultimate direction.
Many Christians do not like the idea of a global conspiracy at work because it does not fit into their preconceived notions of church life or their ideas about the church being the dominant force in the world. They can therefore become very irate at any suggestions of a conspiracy on the part of the forces of evil and will not entertain the concept of an Illuminati or shadow organisation influencing world affairs. What follows are some of the typical questions raised by those in churches who are either opposed to or confused by the idea of a global conspiracy leading to a one-world government, or who are simply seeking more information:
QUESTION 1: "By asserting conspiracy theories, you have left your biblical moorings and are relying on the teachings of men. Is it not the case that you are breeding paranoia when you should be asserting God's sovereign control?"
Conspiracy theory or conspiracy fact? THAT is the question.
Let's get this straight. I don't believe in conspiracy theory. I believe in conspiracy fact. There is still room for intelligent speculation, so long as it makes itself plain that it is speculation, and that it is designed to make people think about possibilities. But there is a great deal of factual material available to keen students of politics and history which reveal the reality of a vast conspiracy at work in this world. This is not speculation but education. At the very least there is a massive prima facie case to be made for a global conspiracy. But there are also many different strands which -- when put together -- provide incontrovertible proof that history is not at all as it has been spun to us at school or in the standard literature.
In case you hadn't realised it, the Bible is all about a vast conspiracy on the part of "powers... the rulers of the darkness of this age... spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places". What else is chapter 12 of the Book of Revelation about if it is not about a vast global conspiracy of the powers of darkness against the power of goodness and light? And that vast global conspiracy has a goal. The goal is total world dominion through global deception and the exercise of occult power (Revelation 13:13-14; 2 Thess.2:9-11; 20:7-9a). Furthermore, the achievement of this goal (which will indeed be achieved — although only temporarily, Dan.7:21-27) will involve the most appalling persecution and murder of vast numbers of people who oppose the forces of darkness in any way (Revelation 13:6-8).
It is for this reason that it would be irresponsible not to speak about these things, in spite of the large number of professing Christians who, for some perverse reason, would rather they were never said. One of the major benefits of being uninvolved with a church is precisely because I am free to say these things without being silenced and disciplined by people who are woefully ignorant of what is happening in the world today right under their noses. These days a Christian believer is far more likely to be persecuted by others claiming to be Christians rather than unbelievers!
If I was just into crazy conspiracy theories (rather than factual conspiracies), I could have really made something out of the fact that Barbara Olsen — who wrote the recent damning biography exposing Hilary Clinton ("Hell to Pay") — was on one of the doomed hijacked planes on September 11th. Or I could have played around with the numbers 9 and 11 and come up with some quite astonishing stuff which would have made your mind boggle. Or I could have shown you a picture of the plane crashing into the World Trade Center and pinpointed an image of Satan in the flames, complete with horns, fork and pointy tail ! Or I could have given you the false information that one of the planes that hit the trade centre towers was flight number Q33NY, and then asked you to write that flight number in your word processing software and then enlarge the font and change it to "Wingdings". There are all sorts of astonishing things I could have done... if I was into absurd and crazy conspiracies — but I am not! I am into conspiracy fact!
Why are so many professing Christians so rabidly opposed to any kind of analysis of world politics and governance? Why are so many professing Christians so scathing about articles which dare to assert the conspiracy which lies at the heart of the Bible? Why are so many professing Christians so readily prepared to bury their heads in the sand and hide behind the prissy skirts of superficial sermonising? The answer to those questions is that there are so many "sleepers", "plants" and "shills" in the churches today that the people of the pew have been subtly brainwashed and "led away with the fairies". Even the New Age occultists at the beginning of the twentieth century predicted that the churches would be overrun by infiltrators from the dark side prior to the revealing of the Antichrist:
"Very definitely may the assurance be given here, that prior to the coming of the [World Teacher], adjustments will be made so that at the head of all great organisations will be found either a Master, or an initiate who has taken the third initiation. At the head of certain of the great occult groups, of the Freemasons of the world, and of the various great divisions of the Church, and resident in many of the great nations will be found initiates or masters" (Alice B. Bailey, Initiation: Human and Solar, Lucis Press, 1922, pp.61-62).
Do you see the significance of this statement to what we are writing about here? The forecast is being made that there are now high-degree occult initiates hell-bent on machinating the New World Order by occupying influential positions in the Freemasons, World Government and the Church. Well we don't need Alice Bailey to convince us of that! We only need to look around with our eyes open. She was able to make such a forecast because the Illuminati have worked according to a plan. From my experience, I would say that there are probably more initiates in the churches than there are in world government and the Freemasons! I have met many in churches in the past 15 years of whom I had no doubt were working for the other side. Some of them are famous people, highly feted, and they are certainly very clever people, fooling many into believing that they are great men and women. How easily fooled we are! How little we look beyond the surface of things! When will we wake up?
People think that all they have to do to write someone off is to accuse them of espousing conspiracy theory. That is their way of marginalising people who hold ideas of which they are afraid. I know all this can seem scary. But we still need to wake up to the fact that we are dealing with highly powerful forces of evil. Even the Bible reveals that. What do you think was happening in the first few verses of Genesis chapter 6? The traditional Protestant way of minimalising the force of those verses is to say that it refers exclusively to naughty men and women. But I am sure that Noah will have known exactly what he was up against in the world of his time -- nothing less than naked evil in the form of demon invaders of the earth! Today, we are up against very similar invaders. This isn't paranoia but common sense and an awareness of the cosmic battle encapsulated in the Scriptures.
When I was a hippy, I had a poster on the walls of my "pad". It said: "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that they're not out to get you". Wise words! I am not "breeding paranoia", as you put it. I am encouraging people to look around and use their minds.
QUESTION 2: "You are focusing on Satan instead of the Lord Jesus. Isn't that exactly what he wants? You should be writing about the works of Jesus and not the works of the devil. Why don't you preach the gospel instead of wasting your time speaking about the so-called Illuminati? Do you not see that you are becoming unbalanced?"
Forgive me for saying so, but you seem to have misunderstood the overarching purpose of Diakrisis. I am not focusing on Satan INSTEAD of (i.e. as an alternative to) the Lord Jesus. This is not an "either-or" situation. There is a time and purpose for everything.
The people who sign up to receive our e-mailings neither need nor want the gospel preaching to them! They sign up precisely because they want to receive what is advertised by me as "written commentary... on a wide range of topical, doctrinal and pastoral issues". Sometimes this involves sending out expository sermons; sometimes it involves articles on a theological subject; sometimes it involves something in the way of counsel; but sometimes it also involves encouraging people not to be ignorant of Satan's schemes. To do so is part of the whole ministry. How can one hope to be a credible purveyor of Truth if one is a sucker for any deception which arises in the world. And if the affairs of the world involve one vast deception, surely it is the true Christian's job to be aware of that and to ensure that others are also.
To everything there is a season. There is a time for speaking about the works of Christ and there are times for speaking about other things. I have regularly written about "the works of Jesus". I have preached more than 1000 sermons in the past decade, given dozens of public talks, and written a large quantity of theological literature. But there is other work which is equally as pressing. One of the stated aims of Diakrisis is "to hold out a hand of rescue to those who suffer psychological and spiritual manipulation". I regard the work of the Illuminati and their stooges as one of the foremost works of psychological manipulation in the world today. Therefore I write about it. A true pastor should always be seeking to UNdeceive people. The apostle Paul said: "We are not ignorant of [Satan's] devices" (2 Cor.2:11). Therefore, he was not slow to warn them about local and global deceptions, present and future (cf. Acts 20:28-31, where he warned them "for three years... night and day with tears", and 2 Thess.2:3, where he begins with the words "Let no one deceive you...").
I write one article about the Illuminati and you accuse me of being unbalanced. Surely, my friend, it is you who is being unbalanced in seeking to stifle one important facet of the material I send out, simply because you cannot handle its implications. I would become unbalanced if I neglected to respond to world deceptions which are preparing the planet for even bigger deceptions. Therefore I shall continue to write about them, regardless of those who would try to discourage me.
QUESTION 3: "Where does all this information about the "Illuminati" fit in with Bible prophecy and the endtimes?"
I am just in the middle of a series of four articles on this subject (developed from some talks I gave), entitled "Discerning the Signs of the Times". Part 1 is on the Diakrisis website already. Part 2 (on the New World Order) will follow soon, with parts 3 and 4 later.
QUESTION 4: "As you are not an American, you have no right to make statements about the World Trade Center. What you do not realize is how great it is that patriotism (which was dying in the US) has once more surfaced in our country and there is a unity which we haven't known for decades. Even flags have sold out in the shops. People are turning to prayer. This could be the impulse that we have been waiting for to bring revival to this land. Would you deny that possibility?"
What you call "patriotism" is not what I would call patriotism. What you call "unity" is not what I would call unity. I have observed hysteria. I have observed shallow jingoism. I have observed manipulative emotionalism. I have observed an inflated sense of one's own country's importance over others. I have observed a great deal of hypocrisy.
It may seem very patriotic to say that one is going to be the spearhead in building a force to "destroy terrorism once and for all", but the global coalition which is being assembled at the moment is not going to eradicate terrorism at all. On the contrary, it will only serve to escalate the stakes. For I fear that we have not yet seen the full force of these incidents. I have a nagging feeling inside me that the next "attacks" will be far more than a mere exploding aeroplane half way up a tower block. How about an urban biological attack, or a nuclear one? Could that be possible? All the military men to whom I have spoken believe this to be a very real possibility. Watch this space...
If the USA was really serious about "ridding the world of terrorism", how come it has encouraged the proponents of terrorism to come to its shores and fundraise. (In Gerry Adams' case, Bill Clinton even laid out the red carpet!). Northern Ireland has stoically put up with gross acts of terrorism for decades. Did any US president ever volunteer to create a taskforce to round up the henchmen of the IRA -- "dead or alive"? The USA has all but supported the IRA! What kind of hypocrisy are we dealing with here? Let's face it, there are surely more terrorists in the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the USA than in any other organisation on earth! The CIA has been shown to have been involved in drug running and the financing of terrorism for decades. (See http://www.copvcia.com ). Nearly thirty years ago, I remember reading Prince Norodom Sihanouk of Cambodia's book "My War with the CIA" (Pelican/Pantheon Paperbacks, 1973, currently out of print but available second-hand from Amazon.com). That was my introduction to the Dulles brothers and their terror tactics in Vietnam and Cambodia. How about a minute's silence for all the napalmed women and children of Vietnam/Cambodia; or for the countless thousands of women and children who have died as a result of that farcical intrusion into Iraq allegedly to stop the "terrorism" of the CIA stooge Saddam Hussein? Old father Bush was the US President who ordered that foolish war. Like father, like son. The Bush family is a New World Order family. The NWO needs to manufacture wars in order to strut its stuff. Clinton was just a fairground sideshow in between the bushes (in every sense!). Just as the US security and intelligence (sic) services knew in advance that Kuwait was going to be "invaded" (and even that was plainly pre-arranged!), so the US security and intelligence (sic) services knew in advance about the "terrorist" attack in the US last week. (In fact, I am convinced that it was more than merely a question of "knowing in advance").
What is more, all this stuff about Osama bin Laden is a smokescreen. Mr. bin Laden is a CIA-trained stooge, just like Saddam Hussein. Both those men could have been rounded up and killed many times over, but they are not really the people that they are painted to be in the mainstream lackey media. They are manufactured bogeymen, designed to serve a purpose. Here is an extract from an article entitled "Terrorism -- Fact and Fiction" by Joseph Farah, which appeared on the reliable WorldNet Daily investigative website on Wednesday, September 2, 1998:
"Osama bin Laden's family is one of the richest of the rich -- worth an estimated $5 billion. It's a pretty well-connected family, too. His brother is a director of the U.S. telecommunications giant Iridium, which is set to launch a revolutionary new global satellite communications system. And guess who has launched Iridium's satellites into space? You guessed it. Clinton's friends in China. And who are the family's partners on Iridium? Clinton's friends at the Loral Corp. and Hughes Electronics. The family also does millions of dollars of business with the U.S. government, having built an Air Force base for us in Saudi Arabia after Osama was blamed for blowing up the Khobar Towers in 1996.
"So let's get this straight. Osama blows up our facilities, and his family gets the contract for rebuilding them. Do you get the feeling there is more going on here than meets the eye?
"Then there are the questions concerning the other targets of our cruise missile attacks -- Osama's terrorist bases in Afghanistan. Of course, Osama survived the attacks, having, apparently, been tipped off in advance.
"Was he really the target? Or were these attacks one more example of what the Clinton administration has become famous for -- symbolism over substance. If the U.S. really wanted Osama, he could have been picked up any number of times in the past on his frequent visits to America, when he has stayed at the finest hotels in New York.
"It all sounds hauntingly like the catastrophic Waco raid also conducted by this administration. David Koresh could have been served with a warrant any time he ventured into town. The local sheriff would have been happy to serve him personally. Instead, the ATF chose to turn a minor affair into a massacre of men, women and children".
How gullible we all are! How easily we fall for the prevailing media spin on any issue! We have been falling for it for decades. We fell for it with Waco. We fell for it with the Oklahoma bombing (see http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=22684 ). And we fell for it last week too. When will we learn that we must take nothing at face value. I come from the "leave-no-stone-unturned" school of journalism and analysis. It's a rough ride because it gets you into a lot of trouble; but at least it kicks the dust off things and makes them far more visible.
My recent mailbag has revealed that many in the military are deeply disturbed by what is happening to their country. I have corresponded with military men of rank in the USA and asked them questions and they have given me very interesting answers. They all say that they have seen the national military motive in the USA change from being a) the spirited defence of the shores of the US against external aggression to b) a toadying to the whims of a New World Order which seeks to undermine national sovereignty and instead implant a global army and totalitarian global government. These enlightened USA military men are not at all excited at the prospect of the upcoming military action against as yet unnamed terrorist targets. They have seen clearly the way that the cloak of "freedom and democracy" is being used to mask a sinister descent into totalitarianism which will creep up on people without them even noticing that it is happening. They are not at all enamoured with the fact that shadowy groups such as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderbergers seem to exercise greater influence over foreign and military policy in their country than their elected representatives.
So please don't talk to me about the wonderful renaissance of heart-warming patriotism which the debacle at the World Trade Center has engendered. I don't buy that idea one iota.
As for the "unity" of which you speak, well that is manufactured too. It is the same kind of "unity" which the Germans experienced after the (doubtless insider job) burning of the Reichstag in Berlin on February 27th 1933. Actually, there are many similarities between the burning of the Reichstag and the demolition of the New York World Trade Centre. (See http://www.weyrich.com/political_issues/reichstag_fire.html for details of that). Is this where we are also heading now? At that time the necessary manufactured common enemy created by Hitler to establish his dictatorship and hype up this national "unity" was a communist called Marinus van der Lubbe. Today, in the USA, the necessary manufactured common enemy to hype up national "unity" and create a gung-ho world army (as preparation for a totalitarian one-world government) is Osama bin Laden. But I don't buy that unity either. It is a hollow unity, inevitably interleaved with tragedy. The only real beneficiaries of the debacle at the WTC are the New World Order overlords, the many building construction companies who will rebuild the countries which will soon be bombed, and the countless shrinks whose bank accounts will be swelling massively with their Post Traumatic Stress Disorder treatment programmes. So much for patriotism. A flag is a rag, and its increased sales are the ragged edge of idolatry.
As for the potential for a religious revival in these recent events, I see no evidence of that. True spirituality involves infinitely more than a few warbly tearful renditions of "God Bless America"! I have seen a great deal of national pride, but no national repentance. I have seen a great deal of ecumenical bonhomie, but no spiritual unity. I have seen a great deal of Billy Graham style interfaithism, but no declarations of true faith. You may be right that there has been a RELIGIOUS revival; just as there was with the killing of Diana Spencer. But religion is precisely what the world does NOT need. Religion is a product of the forces or darkness and is one of the key tools of the New World Order in establishing its deceptive regime. This will become increasingly apparent to the diligent student of subterfuge and duplicity.
QUESTION 5: "What reading material would you recommend on this subject of the New World Order and the deception about which you speak?"
There is a great deal of material on this subject. A great deal. Be warned that some of it can be pretty weird -- although that doesn't necessarily mean that it is untrue! Sometimes it just takes us a while to accept some things. Sometimes -- because they confirm our worst nightmares -- we have to go down a pathway of increasing exposure with different layers being peeled away like an onion before we can get to the heart and accept it. I won't give a vast list of material here. What I will do is present a primer of the more sober reading matter as an introduction.
Try the following:- "None Dare Call it Conspiracy" by Gary Allen (ISBN: 0899666612). "Global Tyranny...Step by Step : The United Nations and the Emerging New World Order" by William F. Jasper (ISBN: 0882791354). "The Shadows of Power : The Council on Foreign Relations and the American Decline" by James Perloff (ISBN: 0882791346). "Who's Who of the Elite : Members of the Bilderbergs, Council on Foreign Relations, & Trilateral Commission" by Robert Gaylon Ross Sr. (2000 edition, ISBN: 0964988801). "The Unseen Hand" by A. Ralph Epperson. Nesta Webster's books on secret societies and global socialist conspiracy cannot be ignored. Neither can "Proofs of a Conspiracy" by Dr John Robison.
I especially want to recommend a book here which has been written by an insider. It is entitled "Tragedy & Hope: A History Of The World In Our Time", by Carroll Quigley, mentor of Bill Clinton and award-winning history professor at Georgetown University until his death in 1977. The book shows that he has clearly identified a secret group which has been working towards global domination.
Books which show that the WTC is in the same cover-up territory as the Oklahoma bombing are "Others Unknown: Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City Bombing Conspiracy" by Stephen Jones (ISBN: 1586480987). "The Oklahoma City Bombing and the Politics of Terror" by David Hoffman.
If you want to keep abreast of breaking news with an insightful slant, try http://www.eionews.com . I can guarantee that you will spend many hours there. There is a convincing expose there of the WTC debacle also. This is a really superior investigative website. [STOP PRESS! 9th November 2001. This site has inexplicably suddenly changed its entire emphasis. The articles exposing the World Trade Centre have gone, and it has been transformed into a heap of Jungian New Age nonsense. The front page just has something about puppies! The Psyops articles have all gone. After publishing Part 2 of their series on the World Trade Center in October, the editors wrote: "For the record, save our key webpages (Save As..) and graphics (right click). Or use a web site copier to grab the whole site... Then if anything happens to our site, please get the word out. Because you will then KNOW we are on the right track". Well something HAS happened to their site. You can therefore come to your own conclusions].
There is a also a searching article on the WTC debacle on the front page of http://www.williamcooper.com . He also provides many links to other related items regarding the global conspiracy. You can also listen to Bill Cooper's radio program "The Hour of the Time" on short-wave (SW) radio at WBCQ on 7.415 MHz at 10 pm Eastern Standard Time (0300 - 0400 UTC/GMT) Monday to Thursday. [STOP PRESS! 7th November 2001. You will no longer be able to listen to Bill Cooper's radio shows as he was gunned down just after midnight today after being ambushed by 17 police outside his house. Things are getting serious now].
A short-wave radio is vital for world coverage in these times. You don't have one? If you want to spend some money, you can get a top-of-the-range AOR 7030+ for $1300 from http://www.universal-radio.com/catalog/commrxvr/3396.html . Or a Drake R8B for the same price from http://www.universal-radio.com/catalog/commrxvr/0082.html . Those are for serious SW listeners and have impeccable reception. One really needs such a "table-top" receiver to get the highest quality reception. However, those on a tight budget can start with the Sony ICF-SW7600GR for about $150 from http://www.universal-radio.com/catalog/portable/0360.html . Or the extraordinary shirt pocket-sized Sony ICF-SW100S for about $200 from http://www.universal-radio.com/catalog/portable/0111.html . You'll also need a good antenna. Consult a dealer about a longwire and magnetic balun or other good SW antenna. For an indoor extension to a telescopic aerial, one can get a little roll-up wire of about 8 metres to hang up in your room. Consult a dealer for more information. In the UK, Lowe Electronics is a good place to start.
Finally, I guess it would be absurdly reticent of me not to recommend my own 800 page book "The Serpent & the Cross", as it attempts to provide a theological and biblical framework to the global conspiracy, the cosmic spiritual battle, and where the crazy church scene of today fits into that.

QUESTION 6: "I appreciate the things that you have said about the Illuminati; but do you not have any words of encouragement in the midst of all this? Is it all doom and gloom?"
Actually, if you examine my mails on this subject carefully you will see that there is always a reminder that the apparent triumph of the powers of darkness is only temporary. We should never be "fazed" by the works of the powers of darkness. It is all a question of perspective. The right perspective. Once you have got the perspective right, then you will understand that all evil is both transient and transformative, in the sense that it is overruled by the Creator and used for His own purposes. The events of the Cross must have looked pretty doom and gloom to the disciples at the time; but it was the most transformational occurrence in the history of the universe. We must always realise that the evil of the world is used by God in His overruling agency. (You can read all about this in the article on the Diakrisis website entitled "Tested by Fire: The Origin & Purpose of Suffering & Evil"). This does not mean that we should do nothing in the face of evil. On the contrary. But the reason why I am saying these things is to convince you that no matter how much an evil act may appear to be out of our control, there is another higher transformative power at work. We will have to wait until a later date to appreciate this fully!
So, to answer your question "Is it all doom and gloom?" I would have to say "Yes and no". This world, in its present form, is indeed doomed, eventually. But that is because this present world is just a stepping stone in the whole course of creation to a new universe in which all corruption has been eradicated. But as far as the gloom is concerned, there is no need to live in that gloom, provided one has made the right choice. This is why the man we call Jesus Christ came into the world. Two thousand years ago, He warned of all this. He said it was all coming. He warned that, as the end of the age approached, people would pretend to be the saviour of the world and that there would be many false prophets and that we should not be deceived by any of them. He warned that we should stand up to evil and stick close to the truth. He warned that a time of awful suffering and persecution would happen in the world before it was due to end. He warned of all this (See Mark 13 and Matthew 24).
But He also invited those with a passionate interest in Truth and integrity to follow Him, to become His disciples. And in an uncertain world, we can do just that. We need spiritual protection against the powers of darkness. And as darkness increasingly swamps the earth, never has that protection been more vital.
QUESTION 7: "What you say is all very interesting but, in the light of that, how should we be living and what is the "Truth" that we should be conveying to others".
We are involved in a massive spiritual battle. The way we conduct ourselves as those who know the Truth is vitally important, as our behaviour and attitude can be exploited and used by the powers of darkness. Therefore, we must live as clean and diligent lives as we possibly can. But because of the strange -- often bizarre -- nature of life in this world today, we must expect the unexpected and be prepared to find ourselves even at the hinterland of human experience. These are serious times. Be prepared for anything. Those who have seen through the lie will be especially savagely attacked from many sides. They will be hugely assaulted in unexpected ways and should not be surprised at the sources of their hassle. They need our prayers.
Ultimately, I am putting myself at some risk by saying these things. (Go to http://www.illuminati-news.com and see what has happened there). Even in the past week I have received mails from people telling me dark secrets about their lives and experience and what they know, and then saying that everyone with whom they have shared these secrets has finished up in a body bag. (And I'm speaking here about really heavy stuff involving such things as mind-control programmes, satanic abuse at the hands of small-town henchmen with Luciferian connections, etc.). But there is a sense in which the dark powers do not mind too much that little people like me have some idea of what they are doing. After all, what influence do I have? They can always spin such little people out to the ignorant as being "deranged nuts". Besides, they also know that the vast majority of humanity will faithfully buy what they say. The fact is that -- as the engaging children's book, "The Emperor's New Clothes", demonstrates -- the vast majority of people prefer the safe-looking lie even when the truth has been unequivocally shown to them!
So what is the "Truth" that we should convey to others? Many people in the world believe that there is a global conspiracy afoot involving evil forces. They may not be Christians, but they have seen the Lie at work in the world and are, in many ways, more insightful than the majority of professing Christians. They need to hear about the fact that there is a Creator in total control of all this who will ensure that there will be a triumph of light over darkness, good over evil, and that there is another, infinitely lighter "conspiracy" at work involving a vast cosmic plan which is exceedingly more complex and far-reaching than anything which the powers of darkness can dredge up.
I could say a great deal more. But as I have no desire to be the conveyor of "information overload", I will finish with one final thread:- Do you imagine — because I write about these events as being conspiratorial — that I have no compassion for the victims of the heinous crimes? Why do you think that I spent most of Tuesday night awake, wrestling with all this? Let me tell you now that I was deeply indignant that so many tens of thousands of people should have been so heartlessly sacrificed in order to bring some satanic madmen's plans closer to their dastardly fruition (and I don't mean the characters who hijacked the planes). Let me tell you now that I was even more passionately incensed that so many billions of people the world over should have been so easily brainwashed into accepting the party line about why these events happened. It all fills me with pain. If only you knew my true agony of soul. Sometimes my knowledge is more than I can bear. But it is not my place here to lay bare my heart and agony. You can get all the whingeing prayers and condolences you want from the likes of Tony Blair and George Bush. I watched their acts and I was not in the least impressed. On the contrary, I found them cold and heartless. There was something weirdly automatic about their responses. I felt as if I was watching zombies who can do nothing other than trot out clichés in the wake of every disaster.
We need to realise that the New World Order and the dark global conspiracy is not so much a political/governmental development as a spiritual one; and it can only be combatted spiritually. The web of intrigue involving secret conspiracy, political cabals, global elites, extra-terrestrials, UFOs, etc., is a dark satanic mill grinding its way to certain destruction. But we will not reach people by hiding our heads in the sand from the reality of life in this world or by telling them some sentimental twaddle about "Jesus loving them and having a wonderful plan for their lives". However, we will reach into people's hearts with a robust message pointing in the direction of Truth, light and safety which can be found in the Man we call Jesus Christ, who will one day return to this planet and wipe out the powers of darkness — both human and angelic — "with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming"(2 Thess.2:8). But in order to communicate these things effectively, we need to be people of courage and conviction in the face of ridicule and ostracism. Compromise and cowardice will never impress those who are attracted to Truth. But courage and conviction will !
This is a space which needs to be watched. Do not be surprised by anything. You will not only need fortitude but also the ability not to think down tramlines. Be vigilant. Pray with intelligence. Do not lose your sense of humour. Be careful who you trust. Find some good friends who know and understand what you do. Allow your mind to go beyond its self-imposed confines and those which others would force on you.
May we open our eyes to the fullness of reality in this world and beyond, and steel ourselves for the rocky pathway which lies ahead, supporting one another with love and kindness, and reaching out into the world with the Truth which we have been shown.
