ADDENDUM to the NEWSLETTER THE WRATH OF GOD (continued from Page 24) In the last Newsletter (October/November, 2007, Issue #119) I explained how the California Firestorms were a WRATH OF GOD event and tied this into Michael Boldea's dream. I will now offer a brief explanation of the other events which I recognize as being early WRATH OF GOD events. Because of the +1- 4 or 5 days for each projected date, there was considerable overlap. While I recognized the events, I had some difficulty getting them in proper order. For example, for awhile I identified the Levee break in Nevada on January being part of the storm system that slammed into California/Nevada starting on January 2 "d. However, Lyn-ELIZABETH learned that the levee break was not caused by heavy rainfall as originally reported, since it was snowing at that time, not raining. More, there were five earthquakes that shook that area on January 7` h (ranging from 3.5 to 4.0 magnitude). Collectively five earthquakes would be enough to set in motion liquefaction of the earth which would easily cause a break in an earthen levee. Once I learned this I realized that the break in the levee on January 7` h was a separate event triggered by the earthquakes and it was not part of the storm system that began January 2"', Fernley, Nevada was drowned in a sea of mud which filled 400 homes and promptly froze - ruining the homes and everything in them. LYMAN CHURCH, LYMAN, WASHINGTON. We had been led to prophesy at the site of that church in 1989, striking the earth 8 times with The Staff. We saw a ball of "Fire and Lightning" form deep in the earth under Lyman, on this was written "THE WORD OF GOD, THE WRATH OF GOD." JESUS' Angel with us said that this ball of "fire and lightning," "GOD'S WORD, GOD'S WRATH," would rise one mile from 8 miles deep each year until it surfaced. What we lacked was the starting point in time. We moved from the Mount Vernon areas (Lyman Church is located in this area) in 1999. Add 8 years to 1999 and you get 2007. The WRATH OF GOD surfaced and Lyman Church burned down. (Continued on Page A3)

IN PASSING Dr. Lloyd D. Hays, long time Intercessor in the Net of Prayer passed away on November 27, 2007 following a long term illness, pulmonary fibrosis. Lloyd was 78 years old. Brother Lloyd taught at both Christian colleges and secular universities (including Southern Oregon College in the late 1960's.) He retired in 1979. Lloyd is survived by his wife, Loraine. When we were traveling, we would stop by to visit with Lloyd, who delighted in taking us to the Royal Fork Restaurant for a meal. He was a big man with an equally big appetite and a grand sense of humor. Lloyd liked to write and stated often his favorite verse, Acts 16: 31 - "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and

you will be saved."

A THANK YOU LETTER FROM CHARLEEN (CONCLUSION OF A LOVING APPEAL] (Quote) November 14, 2007. "Dear JOHNEL, TONI, and others in the Net of Prayer and this Ministry, Thank you for the generous gifts, cards, and letters you sent to me after my dear husband, Ed, passed away in September. May God richly bless you all! I have not gotten behind in my bills and payments as a result. I give God all the glory, Amen! I put my faith and trust in Him to take care of me and our 16 year old son Abraham. Please remember Abraham in your prayers as he was hit hard with the death of his father. I know that Ed is so happy up there in Heaven and I am so greatly comforted knowing that I will see him again. Ed was buried with honors at the National Cemetery in Fayetteville, Arkansas. He served in the Vietnam War 40 years ago. He was a loving, faithful husband and father of nine children, grandfather to 8 children, and had two great grandchildren. We were blessed with thirty years of marriage which I am so thankful to our dear Lord for. I love you all and am so blessed to be a part of the Net of Prayer. Love in Christ Jesus, Charleen Fiers..."

THE WRATH OF GOD continued frompa

A1) When this prophetic action took place, I saw the earth beneath Lyman Church breaking up and this fracturing spreading laterally in every direction -this would lead to some powerful earthquakes in time. But Nancy-TONI saw lightning reach into the sky above and the formation of grey clouds that got darker, which were storm clouds that would spread across America. On December 2, 2007 a powerful storm system swept into the Pacific Northwest effecting Washington and Oregon States. Torrents of rain with high winds (140 mph) swept the west coast areas - one town, Veronia, Oregon (pop. 1,804) was under 16-17 foot of water. Interstate 5 was under 8 foot of water and at least ten deaths were attributed to this storm. Both Washington and Oregon were declared disaster areas: billions of dollars in infrastructure was destroyed. This storm system moved eastwards and swept across the whole country. The Bhutto assassination in Pakistan is a serious matter in that it has destabilized Pakistan and could result in losing Pakistan as an ally. U.S. troops deployed in Afghanistan are supplied through Pakistan; if Pakistan falls to the Islamic terrorists, not only do nuclear weapons fall into their hands but the U.S. would lose its foothold in Afghanistan and the Islamic terrorists would retake that country. The powerful storm that hit California/Nevada January 2 (connected to December 29 `h ) saw winds of 165 mph just west of Lake Tahoe, California and snow fall that reached ten feet deep in a day's time. This storm system would reach across the nation and ended up pumping freezing temperatures into the south eastern U.S. and into Florida. The loss in crops and fruit is not known, but it will surely lead to nd higher food prices. This storm like the other storm (December 2 ) were NOT the usual winter storms, but highly unusual and very violent as well as destructive. Loss of life? Collectively it may reach as many as 80 dead, but the news media is not really following up these events being wholly distracted by the endless primary bouts. The five Iranian speed boats in the Gulf of Hormuz are a serious threat and an obvious danger. January 9, 2008 Hillary ClintonlMcCain win the New Hampshire primary: I've known for two weeks that one of the WRATH OF GOD events would be the outcome of a primary race - something telling. After Hillary's defeat in Iowa it looked as if she might be beaten by Obama. But Hillary turned it around in New

I took this turn of events as telling, telling that an antiChrist candidate will win the presidential election, someone who will pull America down to destruction and ruination. It makes no difference if Hillary wins the election or not - this event tells me that WHOSOEVER wins the presidential race in November, 2008 will be antiChrist to the core, an enemy of God and God's people whose sole purpose is the destruction of the church in America and the United States. r a C 1-i'f

I HAVE SEEN ENOUGH When I set-up these projected dates on the TIMING PARALLEL of GOD'S WRATH, it was purely exploratory. The first date up was a whopper, Hurricane KATRINA, which saw a major U.S. city wiped out literally. The other events, as they emerged, only proved the point - that this parallel was working. It's purpose was to track an emerging WRATH OF GOD, to see if we had a fairly good grasp of the timing. I have seen enough to know that we have it right. What ever happens January 25th, January 26 th , February 5th-7th is not likely to improve our understanding. Nonetheless, this is what I do know at this time: 1.

The events from 1981 to 1987 have no direct bearing on the WRATH OF GOD events on the parallel. For example: Sealing Nancy-TONI on June 17, 1983 did not help to define what would happen on August 29, 2005. Events are surfacing on the time parallel, but they have no direct bearing on the events from 1981 to 1987. There is no definitive connection Only one event came close but it was not on the parallel. Nancy-TONI's Word of a "Gruesome sight" spoke of a leader being blown away, an event that would be televised or photographed. I speak of the assassination of Bhutto (which was photographed) and that was a "gruesome sight" but it was no where near the parallel date (not within the + or - 4 to 5 days).

2.

These events are defining and revealing what the WRATH OF GOD will be like when it does surface in full force. Right now we are only seeing early events that give us a thumb sketch of what the WRATH OF GOD will be like

when it arrives and begins to unfold for real.

THE WRATH OF GOD - I HAVE SEEN ENOUGH (continued) 3. I see the period of MARCH 4, 2009 and MAY 12, 2009 as "Flash Points" the date we are married `In this World' is directly parallel to the date the WRATH OF GOD was poured out from the Mount of the Most High GOD. I believe that when we reach these points in time, that the WRATH OF GOD will begin to emerge in very powerful, very fierce terms. It will start "for real" and it will NOT stop coming until the whole purpose of God is fulfilled.

THE DISCERNMENT ABOUT JANUARY 9 2008 ClintonlMcCain win the New Hampshire Primary When this whole primary process began last year I discerned that at some point one of the primary results would be a WRATH OF GOD event. I didn't think much about it and would wait to see what event, when and involving who. I discerned the results of January 9' was a WRATH OF GOD event. Does that mean Hillary Clinton or John McCain will be the next president? I don't know that - maybe, maybe not; however, what I discerned January 9` h is that the Wrath of God is working in the election process. When George W. Bush won the election for President in 2000 I understood that this was God's Mercy to have a decent man in the White House. I knew George W. was a liberal and saw him as a baby Christian - meaning he was far from perfect, but much better than the alternative (Al Gore). I also noted JESUS' Word about him given years ago (1989) that suggested to me that at some point he would "go south" - to use an expression. I hoped not but this is what has happened. Nonetheless, we will wish he was back in the White House after the new president takes the helm of State (Office of President). What do I mean by "THE WRATH OF GOD" is working in the election process? When the first beastman of antiChrist came to power (1992-2000) the Net of Prayer was able to resist, hamper, hinder and frustrate that man for the eight year period he was in the White House. After that period of time the final Church Decision to reject JESUS' WORD and JESUS Himself took hold (2001-2004) which led to the pouring out of GOD'S WRATH on January 21, 2004. As a consequence we see that GOD has given over this nation, which has rejected His Son JESUS, over to a reprobate mind (Romans 1: 28). In this context, that is a political death sentence.

CONCERNING THE PRESIDENT - JESUS' WORD of July 10,

1989 (continued) TO PREPARING GOD'S PEOPLE IN EVERY WAY YOU CAN IMAGINE AND EVERY WAY THE HOLY SPIRIT LEADS YOU TO DO. ABIDE."

In 1989 I had the view and understanding that JESUS' Word speaking of the accidental nuclear attack, the anti-ballistic missile defense system and the Word about the serious problems of the president all spoke of then president George H. Bush. But nothing developed in his term of office which ended when the bcastman of antiChrist became president in 1992, Things began to move to fulfillment when his son, George W. Bush, became president in 2000 - the anti - ballistic missile defense system was shortly funded, built and installed. From the time George W. Bush was elected president (2000) I had the view and understanding that he would build the anti-ballistic missile defense system (which he did) and that the accidental nuclear attack would happen in his second term of office, most likely in the last year of his presidency (2008). However, part of my understanding of timing was that the major earthquakes starting in Los Angeles, Califo rn ia would begin in 2006 or 2007. While I clearly saw the enemy laying ground work for such earthquake activity in 2007 - the timing structure I had in view since 2005 stood on shaky ground. This year is the last year for that understanding of timing to hold or not hold, to stand or fall.

JESUS' Word to me on July 10, 2007 (see above and the bottom of page A6) gives me specific instructions to: "BE NOT CONCERNED WITH THE TIMING," strongly suggests to me that the accidental nuclear attack to come in December will NOT happen in 2008.

Why do I think

that? Because I have had this timing view for awhile now and

JESUS is telling me to drop it, and to re-focus on preparing His people as opposed to working to resolve the timing of these events. Further, His reassurance that everything He told me will come to pass also tells me that my understanding of this

timing is not going to work out. When I take a close look at what He said in 1989 about these things I note that He makes no reference to the President as being President Bush, rather He only says "THE PRESIDENT" which is indistinct - it could refer to anyone.


Page A8

The Staff and Sword Ministry

January 22, 2008

Further, based on JESUS' Word we know that we are in a two year period of "troubles" and that past April-May of 2009 we will enter a time when anything can happen, judgments can break loose in full force. Presently and until April-May 2009 we can see troubles but they will be restrained and contained in great measure. Even more, we know that the WRATH OF GOD (FIRE) will not begin to surface in full force on earth until sometime past March-May of 2009. Both of these views tend to preclude an accidental nuclear attack in 2008 and would

put it sometime after March-May of 2009.

THE KEY EVENT that tells us that the accidental nuclear attack will happen in the month of December is the massive Hurricane to slam into the Gulf Coast of the U.S. (Florida to New Orleans) in the month of September (likely September 9 t '')• The vision GOD THE FATHER gave me on September 9, 1983 was very clear: the Hurricane would come in September and be followed by the accidental nuclear attack in the following December. "If' that Hurricane happens this September, 2008 then we know with reasonable certainty that the accidental nuclear attack will follow in December of 2008. "If" that Hurricane does not happen in the month of September, 2008, then it is certain that the accidental nuclear attack will not happen in December, 2008. It is as simple as that. As I looked and reviewed JESUS' Word of 1989 last year, I planned to publish it in that October-November, 2007 Newsletter but the HOLY SPIRIT restrained me from doing so until now. WHAT CHANGED? It is the revelation-insight about the antiChrist spirit coming to seize power in the U.S. via a new president occupying the Office of President as being an aspect of GOD WRATH. This tells me that the next president is going to be very different from President G. W. Bush, whom JESUS said was given to us to protect His people from murderers (radical Islam). I will acknowledge that I personally disapprove of G. W. Bush's policy of leaving our southern border open and exposed to uncontrolled immigration by illegals and am bothered by his leaning towards being an internationalist (as opposed to being a nationalist). Nonetheless, I am beginning to perceive he is NOT the one, the president that JESUS talked about in 1989.

January 22, 2008

When George W. Bush was elected president in 2000 I was very aware of what JESUS said about "THE PRESIDENT" and hoped it would not pertain to George W. Bush. In that last Newsletter (October-November, 2007) I planned to comment on this Word of 1989 and was beginning to hold the view that it did speak of him. President George W. Bush. But frankly, parts of that Word just did not seem to fit him no matter what. For one, President Bush's tendency to leave our borders open to whoever wants to come in is in itself a reflection of the church decision to reject God's help to block the invasion of demons that was made back in the late 1980's. In this George W. Bush, aware or unaware, is implementing the church decision of years ago. For two, I've observed President G. W. Bush's pattern of behavior. He has displayed a real restraint in doing harm or taking aggressive action where lives are at stake. While he has acted (invaded Afghanistan and Iraq) it was only after making an honest effort to resolve troubles without making war. Even in war he tends to tie the hands of the military. Thus I now review JESUS' Word of 1989 with a fresh perspective.

JESUS' WORD to Chuck-JOHNEL (October 21, 1989) La close

view of the accidental nuclear attack)

"NUMBERS OF THESE (ICBM's) RUSSIA WILL BE ABLE TO STOP, DESTROYING THEM IN MID FLIGHT — SOME WILL REACH THE TRACK TO MIRV, HERE AN AMERICAN DEFENSE SYSTEM WILL DESTROY SOME BUT NOT ALL. OF THE FOUR WARHEADS TO BURN TOWARDS THE EASTERN COASTAL AREAS OF THE U.S.A. FALLING LIKE STARS, ONE OF THESE WILL WOBBLE* IN THE EARLY ATMOSPHERE — THIS THE FINGER OF GOD TURNS TO SAVE MANY."

* Note — We know today that this nuclear bomb will wobble and miss its target (New York city) and fall to the north sparing the city from being totally destroyed. Observation by C J: (1) In 1989 there was NO Russia, which was only one of 15 Republics that made up the Soviet Union (U.S.S,R.). (2) JESUS speaks of an American Defense System which did not exist in 1989 and would not be built and put in place until after George W. Bush became President (2000). "THE PRESIDENT WILL DELIBERATE TO ISSUE A WARNING, YET ONLY IF

THIS NIGHT OF TERROR WILL BE LONG REMEMBERED, EVERY NATION WILL BE CHILLED ON HEARING AND THE NATION'S HEARTS WILL TREMBLE; MEN WILL HOLD THEIR BREATH, MANY WHO HAVE FORGOTTEN ME WILL REMEMBER ME IN THESE DAYS." "THE PRESIDENT CANNOT FORGIVE THIS, AND FROM THE DAKOTA'S AMERICAN ICBM'S ROAR FROM THEIR DENS INTO THE NIGHT SKY HEADING FOR RUSSIA..." Note by Chuck-JOHNEL: Here JESUS twice speaks of"THE PRESIDENT" in a nonspecific way. It can be assumed to speak of the President at the time (George H. Bush senior), but it did not speak of him. "RUSSIAN LEADERS ALSO DELIBERATE, EVEN AS LEADERS TALK, MISSILES FROM RUSSIA HEAD FOR AMERICA, AND MISSILES FROM AMERICA HEAD FOR RUSSIA. THERE IS NO PROPHET IN RUSSIA ABLE TO DO THIS, SO I ASK YOU THREE TO PROPHESY FOR THE SAKE OF MY LAMBS IN RUSSIA, THAT RUSSIAN LEADERS WARN TO EVACUATE, WARN TO GO UNDERGROUND, THREE CITIES FOR FOUR CITIES, MILLIONS FOR MILLIONS DEAD, EYE FOR EYE, LIFE FOR LIFE BUT I MOVE YOU TO STAND IN THIS GAP, TO WITHSTAND MUCH FOR THE SAKE OF MANY."

Comment by C-J: Again JESUS refers to Russia not the Soviet Union (of which Russia was one of 15 Republics in 1989). "...ALL TOLD RUSSIA LAUNCHES TWELVE MISSILES FROM RUSSIA PROPER AND MEGASEPHARSUS WORKS TO CONTROL LAUNCH FROM THREE SUBMARINES IN THE ARCTIC CIRCLE — YOU THREE ARE TO PROPHESY AGAINST THESE THREE SUBMARINES 'GROSNOV, BERTOG, AND MELDIM.'

JESUS' WORD to Chuck-JOHNEL October 23 1989 "WATCH NORTH OF SAN FRANCISCO - AFTER THAT YOU SEE WHAT COMES IN FROM THE SOUTHEAST, THEN KNOW IT IS ONLY DAYS BEFORE THE NIGHT SKY ROARS TO YOUR SOUTH. THE WHITE HOUSE SHALL GREATLY SHAKE, THE FOUNDATIONS WILL BE CRACKED. THE NIGHT OF TERROR IS UPON YOU SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS." "SHALL MY WORD GO FORTH AND BE MOCKED?!

FROM YOUR OFFICE. TURN MY PROPHETS AWAY AND YOU ARE TURNED AWAY FROM LIFE. THUS SA1TH THE LORD OF HOSTS."

have had only the greatest difficulty grasping "how" and "why" President Bush would reach such a significant and serious decision to nuke Russia in return of their accidental nuking of the U.S. Comment b yChuck-JOIHNEL: I

From what I understand of George W. Bush's personality such an action (nuking Russia in return for their nuking of four of our cities) seems to be wholly out of character. Acting in such a precipitous manner would be contrary

to the kind of behavior he has exhibited in the past 7 years in office. However, I have no problem at all in seeing a president with an anti-Christ spirit doing this without a second thought on the matter. Something else - back in July 17, 2000 I wrote this concerning George W. Bush, stating (Quote) ...this leans in the direction of identifying George

W. Bush as being the beastman on the RED HORSE." (Unquote) At the time I made the assessment through JESUS' Word of October 23rd, 1989 (above and on page Al 1) that the president JESUS spoke of had a behavior pattern which identified him as the beastman of anti-Christ on the Red Horse. Following revelation about the "Wrath of God" event of January 9, 2008 I now clearly see that this speaks of another president and not George W. Bush. IS IT STILL POSSIBLE THAT THE ACCIDENTAL NUCLEAR ATTACK could happen this year? Yes, it is possible - but that would not change the fact that the next president would be led wholly by an antiChrist spirit. However, the understanding I have now suggests to me that it is not likely to happen in 2008; which is not bad news, it gives us a little more time to be ready and that is a good thing. Again. JESUS has told me not to be concerned about timing anymore, but to work to be prepared - this is the priority now.

THE CHURCH IN DISARRAY The church rejection of JESUS and His Word is the prima ry cause for the judgments coming on America and a major contributing factor in the emerging Wrath of God.

The problem is much deeper than most understand; but recent repo rts are telling us just how se ri ous the trouble is.

Study: Christianity has image problem among man youn er g Americans BY DAVID YOUNT

/1- 1 i- G7'

Scrips Howard News Service

For more than 20 years, the Barns C=roup in California has published an assessment of the state of religion in Ame rica. This year its president, David Kmnaman, chose to concentrate on the attitudes of Americans bo rn since 1965 and deliberately poll non-Christians. repo rts that at they `overwhelmingly hold negative perceptions of Christianity, including that Ch ristians are hypocritical, anti-homosexual, insincere, and too political" among churchgoing young Ame ricans, 80 percent agreed that Christiani ty is anti-gay, 52 percentthat it is judgmental, 50 percent that their faith is

"too involved in politics,' and

47 percent that Chri stians are hypocritical The Barna report , wri tten with Gabe Lyons, is titled, "UnChristian What a New Generation Really Thinks About Christianity ... and Why It Matters." Bar's clientele is composed primarily of evangelical Christians concerned that their churches are projecting the wrong image. Kinnaman comments: When Jesus pursued people, he was much more critical of pride and much more c ritical of spiritual arrogance than an he was of people who were sinful. And today's Christians, if you spend enough. time looking at their att itudes ki and actions, really are not like

Jesus when it comes to that Earlier this year, Princeton sociologist Robert Wuthnow made his own lengthy assessment of the same young Americans in his book, `After the Baby Boomers: How Twen ty an d Thirty-Somethings Are Shaping the Future of Ame rican Religion," and reached a lessnegative conclusion. Wuthnow reports that adults between the ages of 21 and 45 still make up at least 40 percent of the adhe rents of eve ry major faith tradition in America. He agreed the re has been a failing of"i.n churchgoing among young adults, but notes that "almost all of the decline in religious attendance ... has taken place among those younger adults who have not married."

In this news article we see that young people have a negative view of Christianity, but I understand that some of that springs from the media education of young people which is nothing short of anti -Christ propaganda. That hate mill which condemns Christians out of hand operates unchallenged. The church has largely ignored and done little to counter the antiChristian messages pumped out by the media (movies, radio, TV, newspapers, magazines). As a consequence young people are being won over to the secular view.

In a January 9, 2008 news a rticle entitled "Faith found outside church" written by USA TODAY jou rnalist Cathy-Lynn Grossman, she states, (Quote) "A new survey of U.S. adults who don't go to church, even on holidays, finds 72% say "God, a higher or supreme being, actually exists." But just as many (72%) say the church is ' fu ll of hypocrites. " indeed, 44% agree with the statement, "Christians get on my ^r

nerves.

January 22, 2008 - (Ouote of "Faith foun church" written by USA TODAY journalist Cathy—Lynn Grossman continued ) LifeWay Research, the research arm of the Southern Baptist Convention, based in Nashville, conducted the survey of 1,402 "unchurched" adults last spring and summer. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.5 percentage points... More than one in five (22%) say they never go to church, the highest ever recorded... Non-churchgoers "lean to a generic god that fits into every imaginable religious system...Stetzer says, "If you went back 100 years in North America, there

would have been a consensus that God is the God in the Bible. We can 't assume this any longer. We no longer have a home field advantage as Christians in this culture. " Most of the unchurched (86% of those polled) say they believe they can have a "good relationship with God without belonging to a church. " And 79% of those polled say "Christianity today is more about organized religion than loving God and laving people." These outsiders are making a clear comment that churches are not getting through on the two greatest commandments, "to love God and love your neighbor", says Scott McConnell, associate director of LifeWay Research. When they look at churches... they don't see people living out the faith," ...71% of those polled agreed that "believing in Jesus makes a positive difference in a person 's life. " (Unquote)

In a recent article written by Rick Joyner of Morning Star Publications he wrote: (Quote) "The teaching of the Church right now are so weak, studies have shown that 75% of our children will turn from the faith within one year of living home. Studies have indicated that among Southern Baptists, considered to be one of the strongest evangelical denominations, this number may be as high as 94%. Even the most optimistic have to admit that something is very wrong. Do our children hear one thing at Church, and then see something else at home? How can our children believe us if the rate of divorce among evangelical Christians is higher than it is among the heathen? " (Unquote) In my experience, I was sent by JESUS to His church with His Word, a call to repent and pray and to seek a deeper walk with Him and was soundly and violently rejected.


rage AI i ne Ntatr ann sworn Ministry January 22, 2UUN THE CHURCH IN DISARRAY continued The lack of Christ love has always been apparent to me; but more, a clear hatred for Jesus was behind the rejection - they were rejecting JESUS not me. The intense wounding which I experienced from the church in the years from then to now resulted in high level of stress and that resulted in diabetes which came close to killing me. A brother like Rick Joyner is too close to the problem, he is inside the church system and is blind to the problem though he can see the symptoms of the church disarray. He does not see the source - hatred for Jesus Himself thus the lack of Christ love at work in the body. Everything else springs from that. Indeed this is what GOD THE FATHER told me on December 23, 2007:

GOD THE FATHER by HIS Angel to Chuck-JOHNEL December 21 2007 "THE HATRED AND REJECTION OF JESUS IN THIS LAND FLOWS LIKE A VILE RIVER BUT IS LARGELY BELOW THE VISION OF MANY. THE GRIEVING IN YOUR SPIRIT IS IN KNOWING THE DEPTH OF THIS REJECTION OF THE PRECIOUS AND BLESSED LORD JESUS CHRIST IN THIS NATION WHICH IS NOW UNDER THE VERY HAND OF GOD FOR BOTH JUDGMENT AND WRATH...,,

THE BLOOMING ECONOMIC CRISIS (continued) The collection of articles on the previous page is only to illustrate the kind of rolling economic crisis shaking this nation. Today, January 22째 1 , it is even more pronounced, as the President when on TV to attempt to calm fears.

GLENN BECK ON TV JANUARY 16, 2008 Glenn pointed out that the inflation index rose 4.1 % in 2007, the highest in 17 years. Wholesale prices rose 6.1 % the highest in 26 years. At the same time wages declined 1 %. He defined the vicious cycle we are now caught-up in where due to these rising problems: (1). People spend less which results in (2). Less profits for stores and manufacturers which leads to (3). Businesses laying off people and that results in (4). Less taxes collected by government and that leads to (5). Government raising taxes and then we go back to (1). This can lead to stagflation. Then the government pumps more money into the system in the hope of reviving the economy and that leads to the dollar spiraling downwards in value. Eventually the dollar will become worthless. If this nation slips into double digit inflation that will cause havoc in the economy. At this time it is estimatcdthat in 2008 some 1.4 million people will have theirhomes foreclosed by the banks. At this time a major bank (Citibank) has had to write off 24 $Billion in bad debts and other banks are doing much the same. HAVE WE HEARD THIS BEFORE SOMEWHERE?

THIS WILL BECOME AND LEAD TO THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF THE UNITED STATES. THEREAFTER NOTHING WILL PREVENT THIS FROM CULMINATION. YET, AS I TOLD YOU THERE IS NO POSSIBILITY THAT THE PRESIDENT WILL CALL FOR PRAYER OR THAT THE NATION IF CALLED WOULD PRAY THEIR HEARTS ARE HARDENED AGAINST ME AND WILL NOT YIELD TO MY WILL NOR SEEK MY HELP. (I asked JESUS. "Lord is the President's heart hardened also?") "ONLY IN THE RESPECT THAT HE REPRESENTS WHAT IS IN THE NATION, ON A PERSONAL LEVEL HIS HEART IS NOT HARDENED TO ME...INDEED, NO MORE W1LL WE SPEAK TO THIS NATION, IT IS FOUND WANTED. ABIDE THE MORE IN ME..." Well, I wrote the letters and the President did not respond, he did not call the nation to pray and fast. The last letter was sent on June 16, 2007. This nation is now gripped in a growing economic crisis. They can't say they haven't been warned, warned and warned again and again and again. Here are few news clippings to close out this Newsletter. I've been up working round the clock to finish this today.

NEW ORLEANS — New aline figures show a 30% increase in homicides in New Orleans last year over 2005, when the city ranked as the most murde ro us in the country.
