NEWSLETTER FOR DECEMBER OF 1996---------------E.R.M.
The election is over, and we find that the press was able to call the election as they had predicted. It seems that they would not have to wait for the absentee ballots, or even the western states are not necessary any more. President Clinton was declared the winner of the Presidency with less than 50% of the votes once more. And Ross Perot did his work once more.
Now the Republicans retained control of the Congress. So this was only a partial victory for the President and his party. And since we know that all things are in the hands of the Almighty, thus, things seem to have to go this way. So we must wait for further results.
As to the program of Hale-Bopp, we know that we still must pass thru the coils of the serpent twice more. I was of course, hoping that this would be the defeat of the serpent. But that did not happen and we accept the will of our Father.
Turn to the prophet Micah and see what he had to say about this period of time. And remember that this is for the United States. For it is Micah 4:13. And before a correction was made and the tribe of Levi was divided among all of the tribes and counted no more, then the tribe of Manasseh, which now carries the symbol of the outstretched wings of the Eagle, became the representatives of this, our nation of the United States of America. For Manasseh, since both sons of Joseph were counted as Israel, would have been the 13th tribe. We thus read:--'Arise and thresh thou daughter of Zion; for I will make thy horn iron, and thy hoofs brass. And THOU shalt break in pieces many people.’ This --'Thou shalt’ is upheld in the Aramaic, the Septuagint and the Vulgate versions of scripture. And this word THOU refers and means the people of the Kingdom of God. Thus, we will go back to watching the story unfold as Hale-Bopp moves thru the signs in the sky. For if the Almighty does this thru the work of the Kingdom, we have to see that set in place first before all things move in the way we would wish for the salvation of our nation.
The number 42 also plays a part in this situation. For in numerology the no. 42, is when the Almighty joins the two sticks in His hand to be used against the enemy, and for the protection of the western world. This was to be a period of time when the Antichrist shows his hand. And then YAHWEH (God) moves thru His people to hold the line and we do not move into this One World Government which the enemy has prepared for you.
Thus this 42 months in symbolism has its important meaning and we find that President Clinton is the 42nd President of the United States. And now elected for another term. Thus, we say, be patient and wait for results.
For months the astronomers have watched through their telescopes, a fan of bright material coming for the region of Hale-Bopp's nucleus. On occasion this fountain of material has appeared multiple suggesting that there are a number of strong and active areas on the nucleus. This is a very good sign that this comet will not suddenly fizzle out after going behind the sun.
On July 23rd, members of an astronomical society took a series of images of Hale-Bopp displaying an oddity which they were calling for help to interpret. They discovered that there is a second nucleus shinning thru the comet making it seem like a pair of eyes. Then later this image was not in the latest pictures taken. Some suggested that this was an alien space craft controlling this comet which they agree moves with intelligence. I seriously doubt that. We suggest that this may be a signal of a two-fold message for these signs, from now on. As Hale-Bopp moves out of Ophiuchus after November 15, then it is passing thru two coils of the Serpent's tail (Serpents Candia). Then by December 1, 1996, it is moving thru one of the coils of the Serpent’s tail which wraps around the heavenly ecliptic. By December 15, 1996, it is out of this coil and back in Ophiucus. Then by January 1, 1997, it is passing thru the last coil of the Serpent’s tail. By January 15, 1996, it is out of the Serpent's coils and will be moving into Aquila.
As the great man of the heavens holds back the Serpent from reaching the ‘crown’ then we notice this other Decan which fits into this picture. For there is this two-fold meaning to this sign. For we have already had the ‘Coming of Messiah’ and His identification of, and with His household. Here in earth, we have had the atonement, death and resurrection of YAHSHUA showing us the way for the empowering of His sons and daughters. As we looked at the picture of Hercules the man with the great club, we remember that in the Zendera Temple this was a human figure, the name being Baum meaning 'He cometh.’ Thus, this is intended as the one who comes to crush the Serpent’s head and to destroy the work of the devil. The bright star in his head has the meaning of 'the head of HIM who bruises.’ The star in the right arm pit has the meaning of 'The wounding.' The star in the upper part of the left arm has the meaning of 'The sin offering.' And in the lower part of the right arm, that star has the meaning of 'punishing' or 'treading under foot.’
Now the left foot of this man is directly over the head of this great Serpent also called the Dragon. In his right hand thus, is this great club, but in his left hand he grasps a triple headed snake. This is the second part of the meaning of this picture. You will remember that the serpent was not able to take the crown, or the kingdom. And he is cast out of the heavens and driven into earth and here confined. Here it is that YAHWEH, with His family, plan to do away with the old Serpent, this devil, once and for all times. And then put things back in order as they were before that rebellion of an Archangel named Lucifer.
Here in earth then, would be this program of the control of three things: money, government, and religion, which the Serpent would use to bind the family of God. And as blindness came over Israel, they would be very successful during all of these years. Since the Crucifixion and Resurrection this has been the program of the devil called ‘Great Babylon.’
Thus, today we see how our people are in bondage. Bound, as you would say, hand and feet, in bondage to the lies of Satan.
Hale-Bopp, as it moves into the sign of Aquila, will also enforce this idea, for we are the last great nation to be developed for YAHWEH'S Kingdom. But we also are under the sign of the Eagle, but of the Outstretched Wings of that Eagle. Today some know just how far down this road to destruction, we as a nation have traveled. And we also know why and how. Thus as we try to correct this situation, we would expect every power possessed by Satan to be thrown at you.
Thus, as we view this heavenly picture, we see that Hercules is seen as engaged in destroying a gigantic enemy. In the original star picture Hercules is representative of HIM who shall destroy the old Serpent, and once more open the door--'the way'--'to the tree of life.’ He is thus, portraying this glorious theme that it was thru suffering and being brought to his knees, to the dust of death. But still in the resurrection and Glory, HE is still victorious. So what are you praying for? "Come LORD and burst the captives chains and set the prisoners free. Come cleanse the earth of all of its stains, and make it meat for thee; Oh, come and end creations groans and sighs, its tears and blood, and make this blighted world again the dwelling place of God."
Thus Ophiuchus had quite a story to tell, as did Hercules as it finally was played out and finally Hale-Bopp moves out of the coils of the Serpent’s tail.
In the ancient "Gospel of the Stars" by Dr. Seiss,--those in old Chaldea called Hercules the very God. A begotten man whom we call Jesus the Christ. From the cradle to the death, He was employed in accomplishing the most difficult, yet wonderful of all feats laid upon Him to perform. All in the line of vanquishing this great and evil power of the three headed snake.
Thus it is that the Virgin's son, this God begotten man came into the world for the purpose of crushing the head of this great serpent. Thus, realize that YAHWEH has been all thru the ages proclaiming from the starry sky, the glories, labor, suffering, and triumph, of His own begotten embodiment as our Savior.
There is no character in mythology around which such great and wondrous incidents crowd so quickly as they do around Hercules. And there is no character in the history of the world upon whom so much interest and sublime achievement centers as upon this ONE Jesus, the Christ, the true believer. With Him was the welding of power unknown to any other man. To kill HIM, to be rid of HIM, has ever been the most intense wish of all the Serpent-Dragon horde from the time of Herod, as he sought the young child’s life even unto this day.
Thus, here in this picture in the heavens, and also in the myths associated with them, we have this picture of the promised seed of the woman (Israel) treading on Serpents, asps, Dragons, and the whole brood of venomous powers, and the suffering and dying in this conflict. But in the end, trampling all enemies in glorious triumph beneath HIS feet.
We wonder at times, what is to come in this increasing conflict between 'right and wrong' which we see raging around us in all things. This creeping in everywhere of scorpions and adders to sting and hurt. This twisting and hissing of serpents. And this everlasting toil, expenditures and suffering for the better world never seems to come. This makes us pause. But this picture in the heavens also reminds us of the story we find in the written Word. And we realize that there can be no deliverance without this long and oppressive struggle. Many a serpent must be strangled. Many a hydra or dragon attacked. Many conflicts experienced. But victory does come at last. God and truth, right and good, must triumph in the end.
The Great Ophiuchus who holds fast does not lose his crown. The scorpion may sting the heel, but the foot will crush its head. The faithful wielder of the club, so that righteousness may be brought in. And He shall be brought to his knees yet. He shall yet lift up the instrument of His power and the head of the serpent is under His heel. From old, it stands written--"Thou shalt tread upon the serpent.'--Then you add---'The dragon, thou shalt trample under foot.’
Now we have seen how Hale-Bopp was sighted far out in space and in the vastness of the Universe. But it was in the sign of Sagittarius. Then it came in, and we see it move into the sign of the Big man of the
heavens holding back the Serpent so it did not reach the crown--the kingdom. And then we see the 'son of man' coming to rid the world of this three headed serpent, thus, Great Babylon. And now we go on with our story as the comet then moves out thru the coils of the serpents tail to outline the story of the ages as pictured in the heavens.
Now read the 21st Psalm, as it tells of this bursting forth of praise on the going forth of this all gracious conqueror. This is a song of triumph. And in the Zendera Zodiac, this figure is of an Eagle. For this was the hawk of Sagittarius, the enemy of the Serpent. It is telling us that altho the struggle ahead is coming, still, here is to be a glorious victory ahead.
In the Zendera temple this has the same name as does Hercules. But this is also a time of judgment. And a judgment which ends in victory, the crushing of the serpent’s head, the suffering of the Christ. But also, the glory which would follow. Thus, a two-fold meaning. For this wondrous story.
November 29,1996---The path of Toulatis, the asteroid which has been passing closer to earth, will make one more pass. This asteroid has the smallest orbital inclination of any known earth crossing asteroid. This asteroid flew by earth in 1992. It looks as tho two Asteroids are fastened together as tho they at one time collided. Just before dawn, December 4, 1996, Toulatis is in Corvus, low in the Southeast under a waning gibbous moon. It is heading northwest. On December 4, 1996, the moon passes 8 degrees from Toulatis. Around December 7, it will be at it’s brightest, and will then be high in the south before dawn just under Leo the lion.
Now the message in the stars today, does not necessarily remain the same in each orbit of this comet now called Hale-Bopp, if, as the astronomers say, this is an old comet and was on this same orbit in a loop north and south, way back, say, 3500 years ago. The planet Pluto also does not follow the same path as the other planets, in their orbit around the sun, it is in a northeast--southeast orbit, making it quite different. But Hale-Bopp is still different from the orbit of Pluto which is in this solar system. Hale-Bopp is a far universe traveler as you will find as we go forward in tracing the path of this famous visitor at this time.
Astronomers are baffled by a new planet that is locked into a strange egg-shaped orbit around a twin star some light years from earth. Astronomer, William D. Cochran, said that the new planet has a roller-coaster-like orbit that swoops down close to its central star and then swings far out into frigid fringes, a path through the heavens that is unlike any known planet.
‘We do not understand how it could have formed in such an orbit,’ said, Cochran, who heads University of Texas team that discovered the planet at the same time that a group from San Francisco State found it independently. The new planet is the latest in a series of bodies found in orbit of stars outside the solar system. And is part of a quickening effort by astronomers to find distant worlds.
This new planet is said to orbit the smaller of twin stars in the constellation of Cygnus, a prominent stellar grouping known as the Northern Cross. You will find Hale-Bopp moving thru this area a little later, and we will give you the meaning of Cygnus at that time. Some astronomers are skeptical of this find of a new planet. But it has always been that way. For some do not believe that the Universe operates that way. For they are still trapped in the evolution theory.
Finally, we are hearing the end of the story of the American troops staying in Bosnia. The White House, before the election, sat on this story. But now we learn that a large force of American GI's will have to stay in Bosnia for maybe the next century. The U.S. may commit 5,000 GI's to stay in Bosnia for at least another year, and possibly longer. It is believed that this is necessary to ensure Bosnia's tenuous stability and prevent a resumption of fighting between the Muslims and Serbs.
Thus, we find that our United States Forces will be outside of our nation longer. And now in Africa, this may be the deployment of more troops outside of the United States, until we will not have enough at home to defend us. Perhaps that is the policy. As then, they turn to the U.N. for such protection?
Since this is the December Newsletter, then I want to tell you a story that I believe to be true. You will know the author at the end of the story. The author said, that in the principal character of the story . . . I shall, with respect for the ethics of accurate reporting . . . quote his exact words, precisely. Adding nothing.
“There was a special session of the United Nations political committee summoned at Lake Success by its chairman in the recess of the Security Council. Many nations were represented by their chief delegates. And this was true in the case of the United States, where Mr. Austin sat for Mr. Dulles. Altho, Mr. Dulles was also present. The United Kingdom was represented by Jebb, sitting for Younger. And Younger Vishinsky sat for the Soviets. Such was the unusual secret session, that the rows . . . six deep . . . of spectator seats around the perimeter of the ‘Committee room twelve’ were empty.
No photographers were allowed on the floor as the delegates filed in. Certain members of the Recording Secretarial were seated in the glassed-in translation loft, which I should explain. It is about half way up the high ceiling room and is accessible only by a stairwell in the outside hall. Were this not true, our story might have been different.
The doors closed at between nine and twelve minutes after seven. No one could have entered the lower floor of the ‘Committee room twelve’ before the doors were closed without showing his credentials or being otherwise identified. None could have entered after the doors were closed without being seen by the blue uniformed guards in the hall outside. They say, they were not distracted, and that they saw no one. Yet the meeting had been barely called to order, first in English, then in French, when a tall lean man rose to his feet from one of the chairs behind the Chairman. A hush came over the oval table and Sir Benegal Rau, who was presiding, thinking at first that all eyes were on him, was nudged by a Chair Secretary. He turned to follow their stare to the face of the stranger who stood behind him. His first inclination was to signal a guard. This was after all a closed session of the committee. It had been plainly summoned as such. But instead, he spoke these words, "You, sir, would you please identify your delegate affiliation?" The lean man was draped in the attire of the East, not uncommon at Lake Success, with sandals, bearded, the beard being well groomed--His lip parted. The last of the hubbub on the floor was suddenly still. And HE said, "I have many things to say and to judge of you. I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world. YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH.”
You could hear the asthmatic breathing of a fat aide completely across the room, so still it had suddenly become. "Who are you sir?" Mr. Rau demanded! The soft compelling voice that seemed, though without benefit of microphone, somehow, to fill the whole room, continued. "There is an evil which I have seen under the sun and it is common among men. With their tongues they have used deceit. The poison of asps is under their lips and the way to Peace they have not known."
The delegate from Belgium beckoned, and being recognized, he said, "Let this man speak. He is here---let him speak.”
“May I question the witness?” interrupted Russia's Vishinsky, grinning. His wit went unheeded from the floor. Mr. Rau, testing the stranger then spoke saying, "Represented here is a great nation which keeps itself apart from the rest of us. I fear they will move shortly to silence you too."
The Stranger replied, "Everyone that doeth evil hateth the light. They make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within, they are full of extortion and excess. The axe is laid onto the root of such trees." (Referring to Russia, as also in the proceeding paragraph.)
Mr. Vishinsky, stern and unsmiling, now spoke. It was a long moment before the translation came . . . "The Soviet Delegation will not listen to the ravings of this warmonger. This interruption is doubtless some carefully planned and poorly executed plot to depict the Soviet as the aggressor in a war of which we have no part. Is it any wonder Communism in Korea appose these Imperialists?" He snapped his spectacles from his nose, and with them indicated in the direction of the United States delegation.
The stranger spoke more sharply now. "Foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strife. If a man strive for mastery, then he is not crowned except he strive lawfully. The days shall come upon thee,” --and HE then looked squarely at Vishinsky,--"that thine enemies shall cast a trench about the ground and keep thee in on every side, and shall utterly destroy thee."
“But,” interrupted the chairman, “you have touched on the purpose for which this meeting was called. What about Korea? How have we erred there?”
The stranger replied, "If a good man of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. But while men slept, the enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and then went his way."
Mr. Jebb, for the United Kingdom, said, "I think what we all fear is that any one of us may be next."
The visitor still standing, said, "When a strong man is armed, keepeth his palace, his goods are in Peace."
Mr. Austin was waving a small sign which marked his place. The chair recognized this delegate from the United States, and he said, “Mr. Rau, in the United States we are hosts to our enemies within our own house who are agents of another government. Who plead mercy, saying that they are loyal to our own government as well?"
And the man of gentle grace raised His hand as if to hasten the end of the question, saying, "No man can serve two masters. For either he will hate one, and love the other, or else he will hold to one and despise the other. Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation." “But,” said Mr. Austin, “they use our own laws, our own courts, our own freedom to outwit us.”
The stranger replied, "How can one enter into a strong man's house and spoil his good except he first bind the strong man?"
Mr. Austin continued, "These among us say they intend only to alter our government by peaceful means, to better our economic system, to be less patient now."
The visitor interrupted, "They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick."
Mr. Austin turned, smiling to Mr. Dulles. And the speaker turned toward them, "There is none righteous among you. No not one. I know thy works that are neither hot nor cold because thou saith, ‘I am rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing.’ And knowest not that thou art wretched. Beware, lest ye also being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness."
Procedures were forgotten now. The representative from France spoke out, "The same enemy is within my country, demonstrating against our parliament, antagonizing our courts."
And the voice replied, “Scatter thou the people that delight in war. Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and power to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work. To be not brawlers, but gentle, showing all meekness unto all men."
Mr. Rau rose from his chair and turned saying, "We came here to place the blame for our unrest, and you have given each of us a share. What is it that we should do? Abandon our efforts to seek Peace?"
And the stranger, then said, “Let all things be done decently and in order. Be sober and vigilant. Depart from evil and do good. Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor. It is impossible, but that offences will come. But woe unto them through whom they come. Seek Peace and pursue it. And increase your faith. Faith hath subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouth of lions."
"You make all this seem so infinitely simple,” said Mr. Rau.
The stranger replied, “Many righteous men have desired to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them."
"It is not customary," Mr. Rau smiled, "for us to hear wisdom from outside our own chambers. We are inclined, I fear, to feel that all wisdom of the world is assembled here."
His guest, unsmilingly, said, "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained Angels unawares."
Sir Benegal Rau then turned to the assemblage and said quietly, "There is no further purpose in this meeting. This man has answered all of our questions.” Then turning to the man still standing behind him, he said, "You sir, thank you. If--if only you could write these things which you have spoken. If you could write them in a book that men of all ages might read them.”
And it was at that moment just for a fleeting second, that the Visitor's quiet eyes seemed to flash with sudden anger (indicating that His words may have already been written in the BOOK), Mr. Rau noticed, for he stopped short. Then the anger faded and HIS eyes were calm again. And somehow, sad! And then, the tall stranger turned and the door opened for Him, and there was no effort made to detain HIM.
The United Nations official recording secretary who was in the upper translating room and who furnished me with this translation of the Visitor's words, left the booth and walked, still making notes as he went to the stairs down the hall outside of room 12. But thinking the man would be detained, he did not hurry. But the man had not been detained and was said to have left the building.
One delegate, who I shall not identify except to say, he sits in one of the first of the alphabetically arranged chairs, and probably only the chairman himself, Mr. Rau, could have seen the Visitor better, and he said, "Such a strange fellow. Was it a tear in His eye? Yet His calloused hand was that of a laboring man. Perhaps of a carpenter?”
Paul Harvey . . . I have quoted from the message that I received, and I have added nothing. Good night.
From the Word of Life Ministry, Laverne, California, came this story. And then these words from that ministry: ‘Dear family of God, this message was sent to me years ago, and we are now living in this hour. The third day is upon the horizon! “After two days will He revive us. In the third day, He will raise us up, and we shall live in His sight.”
November 12, 1996, Peru had the big earthquake 7.5 to begin with, then in the next 15 hours there were 10 more of over 5 points. There are men trapped in gold mines which caved in on them. Many people on the ground were killed and much damage done to property. And they say that the quake was centered about 83 miles out in the Pacific.
Just a reminder---Those who have been on my tape list for a long time, may want to review your cassette tapes no 45-47. For that was the Gospel of the Stars as explained by Dr. Seiss in the 1800. They may help your understanding of my description of Hale-Bopp and its message as it moves in its orbit.
Until next time--May YAHWEH Bless.
Now----------------a man has just discovered that there is another comet or something of that sort moving right along with Hale-Bopp. This was discovered while it is behind the sun. This may explain that seeing of the two lights at one time that no one could explain in connection with Hale-Bopp. Which we said perhaps was a symbol of the two-fold message of this path. This mass is not as large as Hale-Bopp. But it is still huge and seems to move with intelligence. So we will watch this latest development and see what comes of it.
