an open letter
by Ken Crouch

There have been some “coincidences” in the recent past, so
unusual that they defy the probability of being mere “coincidence”. As a
prayer warrior, and a “watchman on the wall”, I feel a sense of urgency
to share these coincidences with you. Do not accept what I will share
with you carte blanch, but pray over it, and search the scriptures, and
let the Holy Spirit show you whether or not it is true and valid.
all, please read it.

Coincidence #1

September 13, 1993, Israel signed the first seven year peace
treaty in history. The Prophet Daniel, in Dan. 9:27, prophesied such a
seven year peace treaty 2,500 years ago. Is the Oslo Accord the peace
referred to by Daniel, or is it purely coincidence?

Why is it than none of our prophecy teachers, our Christian
leaders, our pastors, seem to have made a connection with the prophecy of
Daniel 9:27, and the Oslo Accords, (originally called the Seven Year
Peace Accords), signed by Rabin and Arafat September 13, 1993? What is
the scriptural basis upon which we can say, “This is not the seven year
peace treaty Daniel was referring to.” Since Daniel's 70th week refers
to the final seven years of this world as we know it, it seems like that
would be a very valid question.

Could it be because we have been taught that the Antichrist will
come on the scene as a “man of peace”, and that he will “sign” or “make a
firm covenant” with Israel. That's what it says in my favorite
translation, The New American Standard, and in the NIV Bible. Arafat’s
hands are too bloody to be a “man of peace”, so he can't be the

That isn't what the scripture says! The literal translation of
Dan. 9:27 from the original language says, “He will ‘confirm’ a peace
with ‘the many ones’ for one week.” “Confirm” is a secondary
action--someone in the background encouraging, pressing, cajoling and
publicly proclaiming support for it.

Though it appears that Daniel's 70th week may have begun with the
signing of that treaty, that did not fulfill the prophecy. The prophecy
was fulfilled at Rabin’s funeral.

You may ask, “Then where was the Antichrist?” Oh, he was there,
and he was very visible. He just doesn't wear a banner proclaiming his
identity. The Bible gives us 42 signs of the Antichrist. That particular
man matches 27 of them. Most of the unmatched signs are still
in the future. Yes, he “confirmed” that peace with the “many” Heads of
State who were there. They stood over Rabin’s casket and vowed not to
let the peace treaty die, just because of Rabin’s death. They vowed a
determination to not only keep it alive, but to expand it and expedite it.

How is it possible to believe this treaty is unrelated to
Daniel's prophecy, that it is just a “coincidence”? Does the scripture
tell us to look for a second seven year peace involving Israel? I
believe Daniel told us very specifically that this is the seven year
peace he referred to. Look at the next coincidence.

Coincidence #2

Daniel 9:27 says, “He will confirm a peace with many for one
week.” The word “many”, in the original language, is literally
translated, “the many ones”, which is plural for “many”.

The unusual coincidence is how you pronounce the word “many” in
Hebrew. It is pronounced “RAB”. The plural for many, “the many ones” is
pronounced “RABIN”.

That is how specific Daniel's prophecy is. He told us 2,500
years ago, “He will confirm a peace with Rabin for seven years.” That
man who matches 27 signs of the Antichrist, and many Heads of State,
stood over Rabin's casket and confirmed that treaty with him. As
prophesied in Isaiah 28:15, they confirmed a “covenant with death”, and a
“pact with the grave”.

How can we call this just a “coincidence”?

Coincidence #3

Isaiah 28:15 prophesied, “You will say, ‘We have made a covenant
with death....a pact with the that the overwhelming scourge
will pass us by.’”

In Peres’ book, “THE NEW MIDDLE EAST”, he explained that the
leaders of Israel have known nothing but war since Israel became a state
in 1948. They want something better for their children. He went on to
say they had signed the “land for peace” agreement, “ that the
overwhelming scourge of war will pass us by.” Was their reason for
signing that peace treaty a fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy--or just
another coincidence?

Coincidence #4 (The Sign of 3,000)

When Moses came down off the mountain with the stone tablets, he
found the people worshipping a golden calf. At God's command, 3,000 of
them were slain. This was related to the old covenant involving His
people. After Jesus ascended back to Heaven, on the Day of Pentecost,
3,000 souls were saved. This was related to the new covenant with his
As television was broadcasting the signing ceremony between Rabin
and Arafat, the CNN announcer came on in a voice over and announced a
record breaking event—”for the first time in the history of the White
House there are 3,000 officially invited guests to witness a signing
ceremony.” You can check this fact out in the 1994 Almanac, and
newspaper articles for that day, both on file at the Public Library.
Another coincidence??

Coincidence #5

The scripture tells us that during the final seven years there
will be signs in the sun, the moon and the stars and wonders on the
earth. It tells us the moon will turn to blood.

On April 3, 1996, the first Levitical Feast, (Passover), the moon
was in eclipse. When it came out, it was blood red, as seen from Israel
and the Southeastern part of the US. On September 26th, the last
Levitical Feast of this year, Sukkot, there was another eclipse
accompanied by another blood red moon, visible over Jerusalem and other
parts of the world. You can confirm these two events in the September
issue of Astronomy Magazine.
How strange--Only two eclipses followed by a blood red moon this
year, one on the first Feast, the other on the last Feast of the Lord
this year. By the way, there will be another blood red moon, on the
feast of Purim.

Coincidence #6

If, as I believe, Daniel's 70th week, the Tribulation Period
began with the signing of that seven year peace, September 13, 1993, the
mid-point of the seven years is in the February-March, 1997 time frame.

There is a comet, Hale-Bopp, which will be visible to the naked
eye this fall. It will be at its brightest peak in the February-March
time frame. It was last seen just before the flood of Noah.

On March 22, 1997, Hale-Bopp will be directly above that blood
red Purim moon, (according to that same issue of Astronomy Magazine).
March 21st is the last day of winter, March 22 is a Friday, (Hebrew
Sabbath starts at sundown on that day.) March 21 is also the Spring
Equinox--the only day of the year, by Babylonian custom, that an image
can be set up as a deity.

Did not our Lord Jesus say, in Matt. 24:16-20, for those in Judea
to flee when they see the image go up, and “pray that your flight not be
in the winter or on the Sabbath.”?

Coincidence #7

On September 4, 1993, only days before that peace treaty was
signed, there was a meeting of the World Parliament of Religions, in
Chicago, where it had met 100 years ago. There were 150 of the world's
greatest religion leaders, who met to sign a document called the Global
Ethic, what we call ecumenicalism. What a notable Group. They included,
to name a few: His Holiness The Dalai Lama, Hon. Louis Farrakhan, Rev.
Theodore Hesburgh, His Eminence Joseph Cardinal Bernardin. You will also
find 43 other "Christian" leaders along with the great leaders of the
Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Zoroastrians, Jains, Jewish, Theosophists,
Neo-Pagans, Satanists, Wicca, Baha'i, Brahamas, Interfaiths, Taoists,
Sikhs, and Unitarians. Often in this document you will find the curious
grouping of terms "not authentically human." The real bottom line of
this document of tolerance (and who will not be tolerated) is: that
anyone who says their God is the only true God is "not authentically
human." It would not be murder to kill someone who is "not authentically
human." Make no mistake about it - This is the New World Order Religious
System of the Antichrist. To those who have chosen to worship the
creature rather than the Creator, they will think that they are doing God
a service by removing the pollution of "not authentically humans." The
Internet is now offering seminars for pastors and church leaders who
“need” to know more about Global Ethic. The one world religion seems to
be gathering steam.

By the way, the real reason behind that seven year treaty wasn't
“land for peace”, it was about Jerusalem. It was a secret part of the
agreement, and it provides that the Vatican will assume control of the
Temple Mount by the year 2,000. It is assumed that they will more fairly
administer it, so that Muslems, Jews and Christians alike can have a part
of it.

How can all these “coincidences” be just coincidence? The
mathematical odds must be astronomical.

When the wise men came to Jerusalem to worship the new born King,
they asked Herod where he was to be born. Herod asked the Jewish
religious leaders and scholars. They told them that the prophecies said
He would be born in Bethlehem, and the wise men went there. Isn't it
odd, not one religious leader or scholar went with them. They were the
most religious people in the world. Under oppression by Rome, they were
desperately looking for their coming Deliverer. How is it that they
missed the event they were hoping for?

“Well everyone knows God will have His Son born in Jerusalem.
This is the center of all religious thought and activity. God
established the altar and the temple here. The prophets operated out of
here. David ruled from here. All our religious leaders are here. God's
Word is here. Obviously, the Messiah will check in with us first.
Bethlehem?? That's just symbolic. He's the son of David and David was
born in Bethlehem. That's the connection.” They were overly committed
to their own agenda for where and when the Messiah would come the first
time, and laid it on top of the prophecy--and they missed it.

Could we repeat the mistake they made? Could we be so overly
committed to our own chronological agenda for His second coming that we
are blind to the signs He is giving us right now?

I know what this does to our teaching about a Pre-Trib Rapture.
First Thessalonians, 3:13 tells us Jesus will return with all His saints.
“All” means Old Testament saints, New Testament saints, and Tribulation
saints. Before Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, at John 11:23, He
told Martha that Lazarus would rise again. Martha said, “I know he will
be resurrected at the last day.” A pre-tribulation rapture precedes the
“last day” by at least seven years, yet our Lord Jesus either concurred
that her belief was accurate, or He ignored her erroneous belief and let
her go on believing an error. How many of our pre-trib teachers and
theologians would have let Martha make such a statement, without
correcting her theology?

Paul tells us in, 1 Thes. 4:15-17, that we who are alive will not
precede those who have fallen asleep, the dead in Christ. Paul tells us
in 1 Cor. 15:51-52, that this resurrection of the dead in Christ, and our
Rapture will occur with the Last Trumpet. The First Trumpet doesn't even
occur until the Antichrist stops the altar service at the mid-point of
the Tribulation. The Last Trumpet of God is the Seventh Trumpet
Judgment, and it occurs at the end of the Tribulation. (See the 6th
Seal, 7th Trumpet and 7th Bowl Judgements--it’s a prophetic symphony.
The music for each has a slightly different twist, but they are all
playing the same symphony at the same time. Check it out--they’re all
describing the same events, and they all happen at the end of the
Tribulation Period.)

Revelation 20:4-5 tells us clearly that the Tribulation saints
will be part of the First Resurrection, and we already know that we who
are alive on that day, “will not precede those who are the dead in
Christ.” Brother, we believers will go through the Tribulation, but
under the cover of God's promise that we shall not suffer wrath, if we
have faith and trust in His Word. The children of Israel went through
all the judgments poured out on the gods of Egypt, but they were
protected by Almighty God.

If you cannot accept that the Seven Year Tribulation Period began
with the signing of that peace treaty in September, 1993, please watch
prayerfully for the two confirming events described below.

Future Confirming Signs

If, as I believe, the Tribulation began three years ago this past
September 13th, several decisive events must occur in 1997.

The First Event: There will be war in the Middle East. This war
will be short, but very devastating. We will see a literal fulfillment
of Isaiah 17:1 and Amos 1, where Damascus will cease to be a
city and be left as nothing but a ruinous heap. World economic
systems will collapse, and as a result of the mutual defense treaty
which Syria has with Russia, there may be Russian nuclear strikes
as seen in the visions of David Wilkerson, Henry Grouber, and
Demetri Duduman.

Shortly after this war, the Jews will begin the Altar Service, the
sacrifice of lambs at evening and morning, very soon after the war.

ABOMINATIONS - We know that the prince of the power of the air
will filter some very important things all together.

Daniel 9:27 speaks of ABOMINATIONS, plural. The one that everyone
should recognize has not yet happened. Some of the minor ones have indeed
ocurred. The main one that has ocurred is this. If you will remember David
was a man after G-d's own heart. He wanted to build the temple so that he
could do as Torah in Ex 29 and Num 28 required regarding the morning and
evening oblation. The L-rd told him that he could not build the temple but that
his son would. David took joy in collecting materials for the temple which
would be built. As king he had the authority to institute the morning and
evening prayers of affirmation of the G-d of Israel being the only True G-d
and owner of the fullness of the whole earth because He created it. He could
not do the sacrifice but he could do the prayers. The morning and evening
prayers became the "continual," and was done every morning and evening
until the temple was constructed on this area to have the morning and evening
oblation which required the cornerstone of the temple properly positioning
the altar for the oblation.

Almost a year ago, the government of Israel finally allowed 2 Jews at a time,
to go up on the temple mount to pray. The temple mount faithful continued
to do what David had done. There was no altar because G-d would not allow
the construction to be started. Remember that the altar will be the first part of
the temple after the cornerstone is set and the measurments are made for
positioning the altar. The altar must be operational before the first stone may be
placed in the temple foundation.

The fact is that "the continual", the part of the morning and evening oblation which
the Jews could do, has been done since the government gave permission for
Jews, 2 at a time, to go onto the temple mount to pray. The temple mount faithful
has faithfully gone to the temple mount to pray in the morning and evening for the
better part of a year. The morning and evening prayer portion of the oblation has
been going on for almost a year. It was stopped on March 13, 1997. Should we
consider it an ABOMINATION that not even 2 Jews may be allowed to pray on
the temple mount? There is general agreement that the 7 year peace agreement
was ended by the start and continuation of the new Intafada uprisings. Pick your
date for some abominations happening in the midst of the shabowa, March 13,
March 18, March 23? We can not rely on the prince of the power of the air to
inform us when the great tribulation begins. Most will likely need to see the
fulfillment of Isaiah 17 and Amos 1. Personally I view every day that we are
given to work while it is day as an expression of G-d's grace. Yeshua would
say of these days, watch! Take Heed! This is not a time for slumber or
complacency, there may be precious little time to prepare.

Obviously there is no altar or temple at this time. The original
language of the scripture tells us that the Antichrist will enter the
“Holy Place”, not the “Temple”. The Holy Place is a plot of ground, not
a man made structure. It's where David set up the altar--and there was
no temple until after David's death, when Solomon built it. When the
second temple was built, the altar had already been placed and sacrifices
had begun prior to that.

All the Jews have to do, to legally begin the altar service, is survey
the Holy Place and set the cornerstone, (that would require less than a
week.) They don't yet have access to the Temple Mount. That access
might be as simple as the current Prime Minister agreeing to let Arafat
have East Jerusalem, and the Jews get a piece of the Temple Mount. Some
believe that was an “understanding” in the secret part of the seven year
peace agreement, and except for Peres’ defeat, would have already been
implemented. The current Prime Minister can delay it for awhile, but not
for long.

Around the middle of July we independently obtained from the Internet, a
copy of the Jerusalem Post. In a three column spread the Minister of the
Interior was discussing the possibility of allowing Jews to worship on
the Temple Mount. Why after all these years?? The article also had
comments from high ranking Moslem clerics who stated there was no reason
the Jews shouldn't be allowed to worship there. Moslem clerics said
this?--Will wonders never cease?

In September and October, 1996, Israel will host Celebration 3,000,
recognizing 3,000 years since David set up the altar, and established his
capital at Jerusalem. Is this another Sign of 3,000? The man I believe
to be the Antichrist will be there at that time. The Rabbis’ have taught
the people that the man who can help them start to rebuild the temple and
prove that he is the “son of David”, is the True Messiah. This man has
the lineage chart to “prove” it--and he is not a Jew. I can provide you
with a copy of his lineage chart.

The Abomination: The Antichrist will enter the Holy Place, put a stop
to the Altar Service, and demand to be worshipped as the true Messiah.

You may be wondering why no one else is saying anything about
these coincidences I have shown you. The Angel told Daniel that the
words of some of the prophecies he received would be sealed and concealed
until the “end time”, and that “men of insight” would give understanding
to the people. However, it would be the “end time” before any of those
“men of insight” would receive the understanding. The implication is
that when they come, we are not approaching the end time, we are already
in it! I tell you, brother, we are three years into it now.

Men of Insight

Men of insight, or men of understanding, are prophesied to come
and are mentioned in Daniel 11:33; 12:3 and 12:10. There is a way for
you to “test” these men of insight. A true man of insight must be able
to explain certain prophecies which other high profile prophets and
prophecy writers of our time and times past have been unable to explain.
I will share with you, the explanation of three prophetic riddles. If,
by the Holy Spirit, these riddles are unsealed for your understanding,
that is, in itself, proof that we are in the time of the end, Daniel's
70th week.

1) In Daniel 8:13-14 speaks of the vision of the stopping of the
sacrifice, and the 2,300 evenings and mornings, (some translations say
2,300 days.) I will explain this riddle to you.

2) The scripture, Rev. 13:18, also tells us, “Here is wisdom.
Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the Beast...” I
will show you how to do that, but I will give you many more signs than
just the number 666.

3) Rev. 17:9, says, “Here is the mind which has wisdom,
(understanding)...”, then talks about the seven hills of Rome, and then
gives the riddle of the seven kings. No one has been able to explain
this riddle in the past, but I will explain it to you.

2,300 Evenings and Mornings

This prophetic riddle is given in the language of the alter
service. A lamb is sacrificed each evening and each morning, each sunset
and each sunrise. The prophecy tells us that from the time the
Antichrist stops the alter service, the evening and morning sacrifice,
there will be 2,300 evenings and mornings in which the alter is empty of
sacrificial offering--2,300 sunsets and sunrises. There is one sunrise
and one sunset in a day. 2,300 sunrises and sunsets equal 1,150 days.
After the last sunset, when you have no more sunrise, what do you have?--
you have darkness.

This prophecy tells us that when the Antichrist stops the alter
service, we can begin to count down 1,150 days until the sun, moon and
stars are darkened. This darkness, the time of the locust beasts, (Rev.
9:1-12), will last five months by the Jewish calendar, 140 days. 1,150
days plus 140 days equals the 1,290 days of the second half of the
tribulation, commonly called the great tribulation.

The Antichrist

The Bible tells us to “Calculate the number of the Beast, for the
number is that of a man, and his number is 666”. You probably already
know how the Hebrew gematria system of math works. The values 1-9 are
assigned to the first 9 letters of the alphabet, 10-90 for the next 9
letters, and 100-400 for the last four letters, (they only have 22
characters in the alphabet.) Using this system of math, and applying it
to the first 22 characters of the English alphabet, (the last 4 letters
equate to zero), we can calculate names in English just as you can
calculate names in Hebrew.

There is a man on the world scene whose name and title calculates
to 666 in both Hebrew and English. He doesn't fit the image of a strong
charismatic leader, and most of us think of him as a “wimp”. He is
Prince Charles of Wales.

He was born in 1948, the year Israel became a nation. The
Prophet Daniel refers to the Antichrist, in Dan. 9:26, as a Prince of the
people who destroyed the Temple. He is a Prince, through his father's
lineage, of the same people who destroyed the Temple in 70 AD—the Romans.

He has a lineage chart through his mother's side which shows him
to be the “Son of David”—and he is not a Jew. In May of this year there
was a documentary on Israeli television about Prince Charles which
introduced his lineage chart to the Jewish people. Now all he needs to
do is help the Jews get access to the Temple Mount, and he will have met
the test of the true Messiah, as taught by the Rabbis’.

The Bible refers to the Antichrist as a “despicable person” who
has not yet received a kingship. Prince Charles is not well respected by
his own people. He has been through a messy public scandal, and there
have been rumors of homosexuality, adultery, occultic practices and
spiritualist worship—and he has not yet received his kingship.

When the Book of Revelation told us to, “Calculate the number of
the Beast, for the number is that of a man and his number is 666”, it
literally gave us his name. Onomastics is the study of names. Any
onomastics book will show that Charles means “man”. It means “man” or
“manly”. The words “Charles” and “man” can be used interchangeably in
that verse without affecting the meaning at all. That verse literally
reads, “...for the number is that of a Charles...” Another coincidence??

Riddle of the Seven Kings, (the 3rd riddle): In the Book of
Revelation, Chapter 17, Verses 10-11, it says, “There are seven kings.
Five were, one is and one is to be. The Beast is the eighth and of the
seven.” There were seven emperors of the Holy Roman Empire named
Charles, (check the World Book Encyclopedia). Prince Charles’ lineage
chart shows that he is descended, through his father, from the fifth
emperor of the Holy Roman Empire named Charles, of the House of Hapsburg.
Prince Charles is the eighth and, (by his lineage), he is also of the

Prince Charles’ coat of arms and crest was designed for him by
the British College of Heraldry, using a system of guidelines over 500
years old. It contains all the Biblical symbols of the Antichrist. It
has a dog supported by a roaring lion and a unicorn, (called a wild beast
with a straight horn, or a wild oxen). Psalms 22:19-21 describes these
animals, with a prayer for deliverance.

The composite beast of Revelation 13:2, with the head of a lion,
body of a leopard and feet of a bear is symbolic for other people--but
not for Prince Charles. It is on his Coat of Arms. It represents the
emperors of the Holy Roman Empire. These are the animal symbols for
France, the leopard; Germany, the Bear; and England, the lion. These
nations represented the western arm of the Holy Roman Empire.

That verse also says, “And the dragon gave him his power and his
throne and great authority.” The dragon is “symbolic” to others, but not
to Prince Charles. He has a red dragon on his coat of arms. It comes
from the flag of Wales, and it is in his title, Prince of Wales, that
Charles is heir-apparent to the throne of Great Britain.

At his coronation, he sat on a chair with a large red dragon
emblazoned on it. During the ceremony, his mother said, “This dragon
gives you your power, your throne and your authority.” His response to
her was, “I am now your Leige-man, and worthy of your earthly worship.”
Leige is an old English word meaning “Lord”. “I am now your Lord-man,
and worthy of your earthly worship.”

His Coat of Arms contains ten heraldic beasts, which is a first
for the British Monarchy. All previous British Monarchs had either
three or six, but none have ever had ten. How is it, with all the
English speaking Bible scholars we have in this world, none of them have
ever noticed the symbols on the coat of arms of the British Monarchs.
They have all the symbols of the Antichrist--and they are in plain sight.
Why?--because God had it concealed from our understanding until the end

When Rabin was killed, various Heads of State attended his
funeral. They were shown on TV behind his casket. In the center of the
front row was Prince Charles, the only one who was not a Head of State.
Even the radio talk show host, Rush Limbaugh, commented, “What's this guy
doing there? He's no Head of State.”

Prince Charles was “confirming”, by his presence and comments,
with “many” others, the seven year peace, as prophesied by Daniel. The
Hebrew word for “confirm” has a meaning similar to our English phrase,
“turn up the volume”. Wasn't that really what he and others were doing
by proclaiming their strong support for the treaty and their intention to
see it not only succeed, but to expand it and speed it up?

Within two hours after Rabin's funeral, according to the
Jerusalem Post, Prince Charles was in Prime Minister Peres’ office
“insisting” that he attend a meeting at the Orient House, (in the
Palestinian sector of Jerusalem), to begin negotiations to give back
the Golan Heights to Syria.

What gave Prince Charles his power? Why was Prince Charles
accorded such honor as to be on the front row with Heads of State, when
he wasn't one? In what way were they indebted to him? Well, the initial
peace talks were held in Madrid, and they were public, with several
nations participating--but they broke down. The peace talks stalled out.

Representatives of Israel and the Palestinians were invited to a
secret meeting in London, during which it was decided to try secret
negotiations in Oslo, Norway. The Israelis were represented by Rabin,
and the Palestinians were represented by King Hussein, of Jordan--both
are 33rd Degree Masons. The third party at that meeting was Lord Victor
Mischcon, also a 33rd Degree Mason--and personal attorney for Prince

By the way, Prince Charles Coat of Arms has another symbol--The
Order of the Garter. The Order of the Garter is the parent organization
over Free Masonry, world-wide. When a man becomes a 33rd Degree Mason,
he swears allegiance to that organization, and thereby to Prince Charles.

In 1992, Prince Charles submitted paperwork to the European
Common Market to become the King of Europe. He was rejected, but has
since developed enormous support among royalty and the moneyed elite in

Prince Charles may seem like a wimp, and lacking charisma. He is
however quite athletic, an expert horseman, a qualified jet fighter pilot
in the Royal Air Force, a qualified helicopter pilot in the Royal Navy,
and a senior military officer in all three branches of service.

In 1977 he went to Ghana, Africa where he claimed to have had a
mystical experience. I remember the news report in which he said it was
like, “St. Paul’s conversion on the road to Damascus.”

MONDEX International, the premiere cashless smartcard system, is set
for rapid global implementation. Founded in 1993 by NATWEST
(personal bank of the royal family) and 51% owned by MASTERCARD
it is now the decided victor of the electronic cash systems. The first countries
to employ MONDEX nationwide by 1998 are the UK, Canada, Australia,
New Zealand, Israel, Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia,
Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, India, Taiwan and Sri Lanka. Watch in
the coming weeks for announcements on the US and the European Union.
"This is the final stage in becoming a global reality," said Robin O'Kelly of
Mondex International. "With MasterCard's backing, there's nothing to stop
Mondex now from becoming the global standard." Note: MON-DEX is a
compound of two words, monetary and dexter. Webster's defines these as
{monetary - pertaining to money} {dexter- belonging to or on the right hand}.

Charles is a vegetarian and disdains the killing of animals. He
is an environmentalist, a humanist, and a globalist.

Is he the Antichrist? Many signs point to him, and I believe it
is him. We will not know for 100% certain until the Antichrist stops the
sacrifices and demands to be worshipped.

When The Altar Service Begins

When the Altar Service begins, the world, including the animal
rights activists, will go ballistic. It will include many Christian
leaders and believers. They will claim that Jesus was the ultimate
sacrifice and animal sacrifices are an abomination and a sacrilege. It's
true, Jesus was our sacrifice, once and for all, but that altar isn't for
the purpose of salvation. It is there because God wants it there--and it
will stay until the Antichrist stops the sacrifice.

A word of council brother! Do not, under any circumstances,
ridicule that altar, or join your voice with that of the Antichrist to
stop it. It isn't the sacrifice that angers God--it’s the stopping of
it. That is what He calls the Abomination of Desolation. If you join
your voice with the Antichrist, God will remember, and He has promised
that for those who do, He will pour out upon them all the judgments of

Other Current Events

The Bible tells us that during the last half of the Seven Year
Tribulation Period a loaf of bread will cost a days wages. The obvious
implication is that there will be a tremendous food shortage. Remember
the 4,000 year comet, Hale-Bopp, which will be at its brightest ebb at
the mid-point of the seven years? To the people in the Middle East a
comet means famine.

You must be aware from news reports, the cattle production in
Mexico has virtually gone out of existence. Herds have died in the field
for lack of grass and water. In South Texas the cattle ranchers are
selling off their herds because there is no grass and they can't afford
to buy feed. Some ranchers are selling pregnant cows. If they try to
stay in business, it will take three years to recover, (raise a calf to
maturity, breed her and get a calf from her).

Due to the drought, Texas grain farmers are producing at 30% of
normal, Oklahoma at 10%, and Kansas and Nebraska are producing less than
that. The Northern grain producing states and Canada can't plant because
of heavy rains and flooding. The grain and fruit crop failures are not
just an American problem--it’s world wide. This year approximately 80%
of the honey bees have been killed--by another bug. You know--honey bees
which pollinate our food crops and help them to produce.

The Federal Government has released huge amounts of it's reserve
grain. With the grain and cattle production deficit this year, what will
our food stores look like next year at this time?

The Congress has recently passed a bill to remove the farm
support programs. Farmers and ranchers are up in arms about it. In a
recent local news article, one farmer complained that there will be no
more family farms, that they would simply become employees of
corporations like Archer Daniels-Midland, (a huge agricultural
conglomerate). That's another coincidence.

You see, when a farmer harvests his grain, he sells it to one of
the grain storage companies. Archer Daniels-Midland, of the “Super
Market to the World” commercial, either buys the grain, or brokers the
sale of it to other parties. They and other corporations like them have
a tremendous impact upon the price and availability of grain and other
agricultural products.

The stockholder with controlling interest in Archer
Daniels-Midland is the House of Windsor and Prince Charles. In a time
of great famine, Prince Charles will be a very powerful individual.


If what I have written to you strikes a chord in your heart, you
are probably wondering, “Well, what should we be doing to prepare?”

Please understand this: I am not suggesting that believers
should stock up on food, guns and bullets, to sell their homes and close
out their accounts. That would be very questionable advice. For one
thing you can't stock up enough to last three and a half years.
Obviously you need to pray, and to work with friends and family members
and your body of believers to get them prepared mentally, emotionally and
spiritually for what lies ahead.

Now some believers will take on a siege mentality; store up food,
medicine, guns and bullets, and go into hiding. That may be their
destiny. However, here is a WARNING. The Bible tells us, “He who takes
up the sword will die by the sword.”, Rev. 13:10. That is what will
happen to those believers who take up the gun and become a threat to the

That is what happened at Waco. Though Koresh and his followers
were wrong and really weird, it isn't a crime to be wrong and weird. The
government was afraid of the guns, and considered those people a threat.
The point is, don't do those things that draw attention to yourself,
those things that make the powers that be feel threatened, those things
that put you on the “Bull's Eye”.

Consider this: You can have an AK47 with 300 rounds of ammo, or
a nine foot angel with a flaming sword. Which do you prefer?

Some believers will be taken captive and will minister to others
in captivity, but many of them will be slaughtered. This may be their
destiny. However, a believer does not have to have a “death wish”, a
desire to be slaughtered, just to prove they are a believer.

The majority of us will survive to the end if we obey Jesus’
words, “Those who endure to the end will be saved. Pray that you have
strength to endure to the end.”

When the Children of Israel came to the Promised Land, they had
God's promise that He would protect them and provide for them. They sent
spies into the land and learned it was all that God had promised, but
they were alarmed because of the giants in the land. Their cry was, “Who
will save our children?” Because they had no faith in God's promise to
protect them, He let them die off in the wilderness, then He took their
children into the Promised Land.

In those days I am speaking about, some of us will make the same
mistake the Jews made. We will for some reason believe that we will
survive, “but who will protect our little ones, our loved ones?” In that
event we will not survive, but God will take our little ones through it
safely--and they, having never died, will meet our resurrected bodies in
the air at the 7th Trumpet Judgment, the First Resurrection.

The key to our survival and enduring till the end is to believe
God. Have faith in His word and ability to protect and care for you,
even in those days. He has promised to do that. Jesus, near the end of
His time on earth as a man, asked a question. “Will I find faith when I
return?” That seems to be His heart's cry, what He is seeking most. It
seems to me that building up our faith should be a major priority for
each of us individually. May He find “faith” in us.

Unless directed by the Lord to do otherwise, don't do those
things that draw attention to you. During those days, your church will
not be a good place to be--it’s just a place to be arrested. Don't put
yourself on the “bull's eye”. Your church building will not deliver you
in those days--but the body of believers you are involved with may.
Gather with other believers in private and encourage one another. Help
those who are in need, feed those who are hungry, and hide those who are
being pursued

How do we survive? Our guns and bullets won't do it. Our stored
up food, water, medicine, fuel and clothing won't do it. Our gold and
silver won't do it. God will do it. God has promised that believers
will be fed with “hidden manna”, and that he will take care of us during
those days. Have faith in Him—that is what Jesus will be looking for
when He returns.

Very important for now is to be attentive to what is happening in
Israel and the Middle East, and what Prince Charles is doing and involved
with. Now is the time to begin stocking up on staples, (beans, rice,
etc.) due to the coming famine. Do it covertly, and don't store it all
in one location--some of it will be plundered. Most important! What you
store up must not be intended for you alone, but for other believers who
will not have heard or heeded this word of warning. Ultimately, survival
depends upon your having built up your faith ahead of time. The time is

Brother, there is so much more I want to share with you, but this
letter is getting too long, and there are so many more I need to write
to. I have shown this letter to Jim Searcy and he will be editing it to
make it an open letter on his Great Joy in Great Tribulation Internet web
site. Please pray over what I have shared with you--and do not accept it
carte blanch. Search the scriptures, and trust the Lord to open your

I am not a “man of insight”, though by the Holy Spirit I have
received understanding from a man who is. His name is Monte Judah, and
he is a Jew, (a Messianic Jew), who loves the Lord Jesus. He is very
humble and low key. I am not following Monte, the man, and Monte doesn't
want followers. I may never see him again. I have read Jim Searcy's
book and listened to him speak.. Jim believes Monte to be pre-eminent
among the men of wisdom and understanding. Monte and Jim both have
Internet Websites.

My letter is only a sample of what Monte and Jim are trying to
communicate to the body of Messiah. They have much more to share in
their books, tapes, videos and especially Monte's news letter, "YAVOH,
He is coming." Jim tells everyone that YAVOH is the best newsletter
with which he is familiar. This is a heavy subject, but the coming
deliverance of which the bible prophecies speak is exciting and
uplifting. Monte doesn't give any new prophecies, and we don't
necessarily need any new prophecies--we need to understand those already
given in the Word of God.

I bless you, in the precious and powerful name of Jesus, my Lord.
