Influence of the Media
Most people know that the News Media has been the voice of this world for the last hundred years, especially since the introduction of the electronic media their reporting has now resulted in the shaking of the very foundations of this world. We have attempted to explain this as part of our work as soldiers for Christ for the last twenty years. Besides religion, the news media has been one of the most powerful voices as it is controlled by the principalities, powers and the rulers of darkness of this world (Ephesians 6:12).
The media has been one of the most powerful instruments to spread the evils of mankind and have always taken great pleasure in reporting every kind of spiritual wickedness that takes place and for this reason, it has come to pass what has been written in the Bible in 2 Tim. 3:13: But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.
When you report on issues that are not considered normal human behavior, after a while people eventually become desensitized and many things that were once considered abnormal human behavior have now become socially acceptable.
Consider the news from the Province of Quebec, Canada, where a recent report of the wave of sex scandals battering the Roman Catholic Church is considered only the tip of the iceberg, with the gathering of more than 400 testimonies from man and woman who say they were abused by priests. People have become so desensitized over the news of sexual abuse scandals that nobody pays attention any longer, as the media refuses to report on the real reasons of the downfall of the church.
As part of our continuous communication with the media and stronghold of this world, we are listing below a copy of recent communication entitled Media Control and Public Opinion. The original e-mail was forwarded to the following people.
Anthony Mancini – Archbishop, Halifax, N.S.; Associated Press; Atlantic News; Barry W. Lynn, Executive Director – Americans United; Brian Dunn, Bishop, Diocese of Antigonish; Canadian Press; CBC; Christiane M. Amanpour, ABC; CNN; CTV; Fox News; Megan Matteucci, Atlanta Journal Constitution; Michael Joseph, Publisher – Atlanta Journal Constitution; Nancy Ammerman, Professor of Sociology of Religion - Boston University; Paul J. Abbass, spokesman for the Diocese of Antigonish, Roland S. Martin, American Journalist and CNN Contributor; Sarah Dennis, President and CEO – The Chronicle Herald.
Copies of our communication were sent to media personalities of the CBC, CTV, ATV, New York Times, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, The Chronicle Herald, The Vancouver Sun, media contacts in Holland and contacts at 100 Huntley Street and the organization Americans United – For Separation of Church and State.
We have listed this communication as the first item on this page, which was first submitted on September 28, 2010 but we encourage you to read all of the information listed as part of this article, so that you may know how the media has played an integral part in how this whole world has been deceived (Rev. 12:9).
Subject: Media Control and Public Opinion
Recently The Chronicle Herald (our local paper) published the following.
"Public opinion is dangerous because most public opinion is the view of the media. If the media do not like something, their bias taints information getting to the public, and this forms public opinion. Public opinion is never based on research and facts. The public uses the media for its sole source of information."
In our article Influence of the Media listed on our website www.aworlddeceived.ca we wrote the following.
"As a member of the local business community, the local newspapers are the most important element, as society is shaped by what it hears and reads and it is conditioned by the events that influence the mind of every person. You reap what you sow."
Now the issue of what the media controls is a much larger picture than what is being portrayed on the issue of sexual abuse in the churches for example. If there are millions of gallons of oil floating in the Gulf of Mexico, it would be incongruous not to inform the public where the oil is coming from, or if a plane goes down or any other accident occurs, the first thing the media looks for is the cause of the accident. Most of the questions directed by the media always start with the W - who, what, where and when, not to forget the H word - how.
The media not only controls public opinion, but religion, politics, etc., etc. This is the very reason why CNN reports from the Left and The Fox News Network from the Right. It is for the very same reason why the Irving Family controls most of the media in its home province of New Brunswick, Canada. It was no strange thing therefore that we recently learned about the Roman Catholic Diocese of Antigonish selling its share in a community newspaper the Casket, to help cover its financial settlement with victims of sexual abuse by priests,
Eastern Canada and specifically the Diocese of Antigonish is one of the first areas where there were reports of sexual abuse, after we contacted the hierarchy of the church in the late eighties. You can learn more about this by reading the article Sexual Abuse in the Churches and different items on the Current Events page listed on our website. We have retained a number of articles from The Casket that were written in the early nineties by the then Bishop Colin Campbell. Reflecting on the history of the church in his diocese the last twenty years, would definitely turn a person's stomach and raise many questions.
Just last year it was announced that the diocese has earmarked over 400 properties to raise $18 million to cover a $15 million settlement reached last August with victims of sexual abuse from the 1950s to 2009, in addition to $3 million for claims by six other people. Paul Abbass, diocese spokesman, said the church is willing to get creative to help parishes keep some of their assets, but the church needs money for the settlement if it's to avoid bankruptcy. The settlement with abuse victims was negotiated by Raymond Lahey, the former bishop of the diocese of Antigonish, who has since been charged with possessing child pornography.
It is clear that the Catholic Church used the ownership of a community paper to spread its false doctrines to deceive the people. Its involvement in the local University, St. Francis Xavier is for the same purpose as was the case when the Catholic Church had its own school board as is still the situation in many countries today, with its main purpose of enforcing its false doctrines on the pupils and students. The Publisher of our provincially owned paper The Chronicle Herald uses it also as a source to spread its own ideologies to deceive the people, as do most media outlets throughout the world.
People realize that much is happening in this present world that people have not been able to explain as the security blanket of religion and what it stands for is slowly being removed. All one has to do is follow the news from Atlanta recently involving Bishop Eddie Long.
Trust us, it is no strange thing that the mighty are falling, Consider the Vatican, Tiger Woods, Ted Haggard, Eddie Long, Banks, Governments, etc., etc. Churches are closing worldwide and the only people that are still attending church are an older generation and therefore church attendance has no hope of recovery. In Western Europe and the seat of the Roman Church, most massive structures that were constructed a thousand years ago by local bishops are being closed. Sometimes small cities may have as many as three, four or five massive structures that were built by different bishops so that each could have its own icon.
Now we know that the media is not interested in our story as it cannot be received by this present world (John 14:17) but trust us, what you see happening is God's doing, the living God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Andy & Dianne van den Berg. The earth is His footstool (Matthew 5:35; Acts 7:49) and so are His enemies (Psalm 110:1; Matthew 22:44; Hebrews 10:13). For twenty six years we have written the following words: there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known (Matthew 10:26).
The day will come and is already here that the media will no longer be able to hide behind its cloak of secrecy, as people are demanding to know the truth behind the deceptions of this world, including the religious doctrines they follow, which are now failing the people on a daily basis, as reported by the media with all its lies and deceptions and they will continue to do so at a more rapid rate than during the previous twenty years.
In order that people will have a better understanding how the media has failed the people in it's reporting of Sexual Abuse in the Churches and many other issues, this communication will be added to the article Influence of the Media listed on our website www.aworlddeceived.ca.
In His Service.
When a person experiences happy tidings or receives a beautiful gift, their first reaction is to share it with family, friends and those around them (Matthew 13:44-46; Luke 15:8-10).
So it was with us when God revealed Himself to us. Recognizing that the gift of Life (John 6:32,33) was the greatest gift anyone could receive, we were eager to share it with all those we knew. Much of this we explain, in the book A World Deceived.
On May 7, 1988 we placed our first ad in our local paper, in an attempt to reach out to the people of this world. A copy of the ad is displayed in the chapter Soldiers for Christ of the book A World Deceived.
We soon learned about the obstacles we faced and that we did not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Eph. 6:12).
As we grew in faith, we became bolder in our preaching and started to forward copies of our writings to key media personnel in our local community. After twenty years, our many contacts with the media have now reached all of the major news networks in North America.
The CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) has also been a regular contact of our ministry, but over many years they have refused to communicate our message. It was no surprise to us therefore that they recently announced a budget cut of $171 million and the elimination of 800 total jobs — 10% of its total workforce.
In our local market we had two daily papers, one of which was forced to close its doors soon after they refused to place a prepaid ad for us. The other paper also refused to communicate any of our responses in their 'Voice of the People' column or print any of our messages as prepaid display advertising.
We wrote the publisher, his staff and reporters on numerous occasions and eventually wrote the paper our last letter dated July 14, 2008 and have listed our letter below, so that the people visiting this website may come to know the truth about the voice of the media and the spirit that controls this world.
Please note that we never received a reply and they never accepted our invitation to a public meeting and the opportunity to discuss our testimony. It is also interesting to note but not surprising, that the paper announced this year that they had to reduce their operating budget by 1 million and as a result, many people lost their employment.
CNN reported on March 23, 2009, that since January 2008, at least 120 newspapers have shut down in the USA alone. According to the report, the chains that own large metropolitan dailies such as the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune are in bankruptcy and other papers, large and small, are teetering on the brink.
The following is a copy of our last letter to the publisher of the paper.
When I wrote you last year on August 16, 2007, the subject I used was 'The Influence of the Media'. I followed this up with another letter, subject: 'Where Are We Headed?'
I know that at times I have been somewhat of a pestilent fellow (Acts 24:5), and therefore you should be happy to hear that this will be my final communication with you.
As a good soldier for Christ, I have completed my work with your paper, but not before I tell you of God's judgment. Judgment belongs to God and His judgment is according to truth (Ps. 94:1; John 5:30; 8:16; 16:11; Romans 2:2,3).
God always has the final word in all things.
In order for me to explain God's judgment upon the people of this world, this will be a lengthy letter, so it is my hope that you will bear with me.
First I would like to remind you of some of the things I spoke of in my correspondence to you last year.
As a member of the local business community, the local newspapers are the most important element, as society is shaped by what it hears and reads and it is conditioned by the events that influence the mind of every person. You reap what you sow.
The media has been the most powerful tool and institution to spread the evils of mankind the last 100 years and for this reason it has come to pass what has been written in the Bible in 2 Tim. 3:13: But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.
Remember, these words were written two thousand years ago by the apostle Paul to his son Timothy and are now being fulfilled. Through global communication systems, especially the development of Television and the Internet during the last fifty years, we have seen an increase in decadence and immorality such as mankind has never seen before, and that has now resulted in the shaking of the very foundations of this world.
Next, I would like to explain how the development of global communication systems and the circulation of news has progressed as a result of the workings of mankind, and how we are living at a time in history when man's work will be severely tested.
The industrial revolution started in Great Britain in about the middle of the 1700's. It started with the steam engine and it is well known that the textile inventions, together with the steam engine, had given rise to 'an industrial revolution.'
The invention of the elevator made it feasible to build skyscrapers. Isaac Merit Singer, the nineteenth-century American inventor who developed a sewing machine, offered to sell his company's products to the public on the installment plan. His installment plan was more far-reaching than his mechanical creation.
For the first time, people could buy expensive goods, as new ones were invented and marketed: the refrigerator, the dishwasher, the automobile. What Singer had created was the consumer society, and what he had sparked off was a credit revolution.
Learning how to generate electricity, a process initiated early in the nineteenth century by the Englishman Michael Faraday, resulted in lighting up the world, a process further developed by the American Thomas Alva Edison.
From the beginnings of civilization until the eighteenth century in Europe, the only power the world had had available for use was that of humans and other animals, and environmental resources such as wind and water.
Today, having learned to release nuclear energy, mankind thinks that we are almost there. Things like Stem Cell Research and the technology of Cloning is nothing more than man trying to be God. Like it was during the days of the building of the Tower of Babel, there can be no doubt, we must be almost there.
Like Singer, Edison created something else besides his inventions: he created inventing as a career. R & D - research and development was born. No longer was a typical invention an accident; it was the intended result of a systematic, organized, and often lavishly funded program of discovery.
Self-perpetuating economic growth was a characteristic of a free-enterprise system in the industrial age, but it was not until our own lifetime that it was seriously recognized that there might be limit to growth, or there may be costs associated with growth that we cannot afford to pay.
The greenhouse effect which cannot be restored, regardless of what Al Gore thinks, is a good example. Also, there will be no return from the meltdown of the polar ice caps, which is now occurring at a much faster rate as was first predicted.
The other one is the development of weapons of mass destruction, with which the scientific, technological, and industrial revolution has armed the human race in the service of total war among entire populations. Mankind has always invented things for his personal use and convenience.
Weapons of mass destruction are not just developed, so mankind can store them in silos, on board of navy ships or submarines. Anyone believing that this is the case, is daydreaming in the same way that mankind thinks that organized religion has anything to do with God.
Weapons of mass destruction will eventually be used and if it wasn't for the elect's (believers) sake no flesh shall be saved during those days (Matthew 13:19-25). Please note that in no way do I perceive myself to be a doomsday preacher as of that day and that hour no man knows (Mark 13:31).
The invention of railroads and transportation transformed the world and was basic to its industrialization. The industrial revolution shaped life everywhere, causing cultures to converge.
Not only industrialization, but the post-industrial processes currently at work in the service-industry era, the computer epoch, and the information age tend towards global homogeneity.
The communications industry and the reporting of news became part of this information age. Unfortunately people have always hungered for the wrong kind of news. Just look at the tabloids at the check-outs of your local grocery store or your local paper. But this is what mankind desires.
Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, it has been clear that the way we live now has a central flaw, the cohesion of our society has been eroding.
The home, the family, the village where everyone knows everyone else, the rooted traditions and shared values and beliefs, all of these and all of the workings of mankind, will be severely tested and eventually come to nought.
I believe that we are living at a time in history where during this generation, God is creating an awareness of the spiritual blindness of mankind. I see very dark days ahead for the next generation and those days of darkness are probably already here.
The last twenty years we have seen the negative impact the communications industry and the news media have had on society.
When you put children in front of a TV or expose them to a system like the Internet that harbours every evil you can think of, then that is the fruit society will reap.
The same goes for the news industry. You talk to most people today and they all will tell you that something is not quite right in this present world. No kidding? Anyone read the paper this morning?
Even the political systems that were developed during the industrial revolution and the freedom of expression mankind has enjoyed during the days of 'so-called' democracy, have already deteriorated. The spirit of this world is now slowly removing these freedoms through human rights agencies, while judicial systems and common sense have fallen by the wayside and given way to total confusion and all sorts of evil.
If you have any doubt about the protection system that mankind has developed for himself — something called the police force — let me draw your intention to the recent incident that happened in the Town of Digby, Nova Scotia.
A number of out-of-town police officers came to visit the local people to raise money for the Nova Scotia Peace Officers Memorial, but somehow they obviously got their messages mixed up and raised 'hell' instead. I wonder if the RCMP remembered to do a breathalyzer test on the driver of the van that night.
For the last year, I have attempted to inform you of the spiritual blindness of mankind and what it must do to be able to see the hand of God in this world. I have shown you and your staff a way to be able to understand the spirit that controls this world (Matthew 12:26; Ephesians 6:12), and have tried to give them a better understanding of the things they write about.
Spiritually, the news media are referred to as vultures: you see them wherever the dead bodies and the carcasses are, i.e. war, accidents, poverty, hunger, disease, crime, murder, killings, scandals, religion, abortion, homosexuality, etc, etc. (Matt. 24:28; Luke 17:37).
The recent series on the Faces of Poverty is a good example. It is sad how you allow your reporters to prey on the downtrodden and outcasts of society and make them a gazing stock by openly displaying their despair and desperation, but you won't allow them (or they don't have the courage) to ask questions and enquire about those things that would help these people.
I am not talking about 'religion'. They have all experienced that, and have stood in the line-up at soup-kitchens and food-banks, sponsored by different religious groups. After a while, they learned that their programs and false hope did not work.
Let me remind you of something that could help. Remember the seven loaves of bread and the few fishes that fed over four thousand men, plus the women and children? That would be almost the same number of people that the Metro Centre is able to accommodate. That is not all; there were also seven baskets with leftovers!
And the time that there were five loaves and two fishes and the disciples fed five thousand men plus the women and children and after they were finished they gathered twelve baskets full of fragments. Please understand that salvation was not in the miracles Jesus Christ performed, but in the message He left behind, which is the same message we preach.
Because you believed not in my message of repentance (Acts 26:18) and do not want to acknowledge what spirit you serve, God will visit the fruit of your labor and your works. Trust me, God's judgment will be no coincidence.
One of your regular reporters recently informed me in one of his e-mails, how sorry he was for the frustration I was obviously experiencing. As I have already explained to him, frustration is the fruit of the natural man. We do not experience any such things as we know that everything takes place at God's time.
He also indicated to me that giving ongoing developments (sexual abuse scandals and the law suit against the Diocese of Antigonish), that I must be feeling some kind of vindication.
God's people don't go by feelings or seek vindication in their work. That is the fruit of the natural body as well that he himself experiences. Everything he writes about is about 'feelings'.
The things we communicate are according to the wisdom and knowledge of God, to show mankind the way of repentance and the narrow road that leads to His Kingdom. Dianne (my wife) and I have been on this journey for twenty four years and we know full well how the devil (the natural spirit of man) always attempts to try to twist things around and falsely accuse us of the things that he himself is guilty of. The religious authorities did the same thing to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and the disciples.
Your reporter is obviously still grappling with the issues of abortion, homosexuality and the sexual abuse scandals that have shaken the foundations of almost every religious organization in this world.
We do know and understand why he might be somewhat upset over these issues that challenge the man-made and religious doctrines he has chosen to follow. We also do understand his total frustration in these matters, since he is not making any headway and not being able to understand any of the things we have written about, but I rather address this in a more personal way with him.
This is the same reporter that asked his name to be removed from our mailing list when we first contacted you last year, and who had earlier received a complimentary copy of the book A World Deceived.
Because he writes an inane and totally nonsensical column for a local paper, does not give him the right to falsely accuse people that he is unable to understand as a result of his own spiritual blindness (1 Cor. 2:14), especially since he has never taken a minute to try to comprehend our message of repentance or has asked us any questions.
Perhaps he is still upset over the fact that we forwarded our testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ to his friend and mentor (a local minister), who mislead the people of this province through his columns, and who was a regular contributor to your paper in the early nineties.
He died a number of years ago. The only thing we can say with certainty is that our message of repentance will remain long after Mount Saint Vincent University and St. Francis Xavier have disappeared.
Now on the other hand, we see God's hand at work every day in our lives. Please allow me to share with you a few testimonials to show you that God's judgment is not just a coincidence.
1) In the early eighties I leased a new station wagon from a major Car Dealership. We had it in for service on many occasions as it filled with an inch of water every time it rained.
One Friday afternoon I had a meeting with the owner, who advised me that they could no longer supply me with a courtesy vehicle while it was in service. I arranged for my wife to pick me up and the following morning we learned that his new dealership had gone up in flames the night before.
The following week, while driving on Quinpool road, I noticed my leased vehicle in front of me. I followed it to the CBC building and when I contacted the CBC, I learned that the car dealer had rented my car for transporting equipment during the Pope's visit. I was able to successfully break my lease as a result.
Normally, we would have thought that this was just a coincidence and initially we did not think much of the whole experience, but as we grew in our faith in years to come, we realized that the whole incident had not been a coincidence.
2) In 1988 I contacted the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church to advise them how they were deceiving the people with man-made doctrines and that we were living at a time in history that God would visit their sin and their works. Within a year the first sexual abuse scandals started to surface.
It is ironic that our two main contacts at the church's hierarchy both retired. Perhaps they stepped down or resigned under pressure. Who will ever know? For a better understanding what it means to be a sinner, we direct you to the article What is Sin? on our web site www.aworlddeceived.ca
3) Less than one year before Jimmy Swaggert and Jimmy & Tammy Bakker fell from grace, I had contacted them and informed them that God would visit their sin. When Jimmy Swaggert went back to preaching, I wrote him again to inform him that God would visit him a second time. God did!
He is back to preaching again and he still has a substantial following. Perhaps they just enjoy his music. The people that attend his services still do not want to acknowledge that he preaches a false Christ.
His preaching has nothing to do with the Gospel of Christ but rather a false Christ. This is how we learned what is written in John 3:19: And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
4) Ralph Rutledge was the founder of the Faith Tabernacle Church in Halifax, but moved to Toronto for bigger and better things. There he built the Queensway Cathedral, one of Canada's largest churches, and had his own TV Program called 'Revival Hour'.
I personally wrote him and spoke to him on the phone, that God would visit his sins and that he was not a servant of God. I also informed him that he was not Born of God, that he did not preach the Gospel of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and that he represented a false Christ.
Furthermore, I informed him that he was leading the people of Canada astray, that he did not understand the Bible and that his prayers were all in vain. It was not long after I spoke to him by phone, that it became public that he was involved in homosexual activity and as a result he was defrocked by The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.
It is interesting to note that Ralph Rutledge is the brother-in-law of David Mainse of 100 Huntley Street, who is of the same spirit as Mr. Rutledge.
5) Most people I contacted in the late eighties and early nineties, have either moved on or have died, including Jerry Falwell. His teachings had nothing to do whatsoever with the Gospel of Christ, and through his teachings and man-made doctrines, deceived all the people at Liberty University, a man-made institution he founded as Lynchburg Baptist College in 1971.
6) My natural family in Holland was at one time the icon of what a family should be like. There were nine children in the family and as we grew up, my Mom only kept a bottle of aspirin in the house and a doctor was only consulted when there was an absolute emergency.
When we sent them copies of the articles I had written, our new-found wisdom was met with derision. Soon after we testified to them, my oldest sister died of cancer within two years of diagnosis and forty chemo treatments. She had three young children at the time.
Cruel you may say, but God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34; 1 Peter 1:17). My dad died, but not before he called me an AntiChrist, because we had decided no longer to attend the Catholic Church.
The poor man did not want to believe or acknowledge that he served the spirit of Antichrist his whole life. My oldest sister-in-law died of cancer six weeks after diagnosis.
So did my second oldest brother who died of cancer within one year of diagnosis. He was the spokesman for the family, and had tried to advise me earlier where I had gone wrong. Another brother died two years ago from every possible disease you can think of.
Another brother has been involved in a bad divorce a number of years ago, that has torn the family apart (choosing sides). One of my sisters has had breast cancer and had a lump removed from her eye last year, which was cancerous also. She spends more time in a doctor's office undergoing tests, rather than being able to live a normal life.
Another sister has been sick her whole life since she gave birth to a child, and has since suffered from a deteriorating muscle disease and lives on so many pills, that she requires an organizer to ensure she takes all of them and at certain times.
My youngest sister has been sick for the last ten years. Her husband had a quadruple bypass two years ago. Despite all this and more, my family still does not want to believe in our message.
My Mom is a witness to all of this at the age of 92, and as a result of her sinful conditioning she still thinks that the Pope is God on earth. Believe it or not! Since we are on the subject of the Pope, the CBC news reported recently that sexual abuse cases in Australia involving the clergy have reached in the thousands.
The Pope recently arrived there for a visit, and despite the recent history of the sexual abuse cases or the past history of the church (e.g. the Inquisition), 250,000 people are expected to attend a youth rally. All are being deceived by the spirit of this world and are referred to as the spirit of antichrist.
During his nine day visit, the Pope will not bring up the word 'Repent' once, as he has no understanding what it means. He does not know what spirit he serves, as he is spiritually blind and separated from God.
He is, as the Bible quotes: a servant of sin (8:34) and when the head is corrupt the whole body is corrupt. Every tree is known by his own fruit (Luke 6:54) and a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit (Matthew 7:17).
Trust me that the Bible is true when it records in Ephesians 6:12, that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
I still do communicate with my Mom from time to time, and with one of my sisters and her partner, but it is only small talk. I still do love my family but with God's love now, which they refuse to accept, as does all of mankind. In the meantime, we have become attached to a new family (Matthew 12:50).
7) In 1991 I wrote the President of one of the largest chemical companies in the world with over 50,000 employees. He had written a book entitled: 'A Commitment to Greatness', in which he explained that it was his goal to build one of the leading companies in the world.
One of the chapters was entitled: 'Fruits of Greatness'. The technology he envisioned was 'biotechnology' or also referred to as 'genetic engineering', which consists of modifying biological organisms or genes outside the natural realm of a body, plant or tree.
Basically, he envisioned himself to be a God. He spent $150 million dollars in a Life Sciences Laboratory, where he employed three hundred of the finest scientists the world knew and spent $600 million dollars annually in research.
In August, 1991 I introduced myself as the servant of the Most High and informed him how God had chosen me to inform mankind about the ways of the true and living God.
In my letter I did inform him that the wisdom of this world (including his) was mere foolishness with God and that he was on the wrong track. Well, it was no surprise to me that he resigned six months after I forwarded him my testimony. I guess he got run over by sitting on the wrong track?
As a footnote: I was an employee of the company at the time, and did receive a brown envelope three months after my letter and after I was nominated for the Master Sales Award for North America that year. I would be pleased to tell you the rest of the story.
It is most interesting, as the company even contacted the Criminal Investigative Department of the Halifax Police Department as a direct result of my testimony and message of repentance. I never heard from them again, after I informed them that I had the right to freedom of speech under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
8) In 1991 I wrote to then Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. A copy was forwarded to Howard E. Crosby, MP. I would be pleased to forward a copy of my letter to anyone interested. Everything I wrote to Mr. Mulroney has proven to be the truth. I was not surprised to learn many years later about the story/scandal and his involvement with Karlheinz Schreiber.
9) I first wrote Bill Clinton while he was still the President of the USA. My testimony was certainly no fairy-tale and neither were Monica and his impeachment less than two years after I wrote him. I forwarded him a complimentary copy of my book 'A World Deceived' last year, along with a copy of my earlier letter.
10) The closing of The Daily News was no coincidence. I wrote Mr. Jack Romanelli of the paper on August 28, 2007 to ask him why his advertising department had refused a request from us to run the ad 'Where Are We Headed?' Where else did I hear this story? The newspaper was a waste of good paper and the people of this province are better off without it.
11) After contacting Bill Gates and sending him our testimony concerning the Lord Jesus Christ and a copy of the book 'A World Deceived' on August 15, 2006 we were not surprised to learn that he spent his last day at Microsoft on June 27, 2008.
The above are just a few testimonials as part of our work as soldiers for Christ. For all those interested to know what the weapons are of our warfare, I encourage you to read 2 Cor. 10:4 and Eph. 6:11-19.
As you can clearly see by the above testimonials, there is no reason for us to be frustrated, as God stands behind everything we do and say. I know that my work and my correspondence to you and your staff have not been in vain, as you and your staff will come to see.
Don't look for any signs and/or times, just read tomorrow's paper. It will be full of God's judgment on mankind and this present world.
I always invite people to ask us any questions at any time, and for this reason I always place our telephone number behind my name when I sign off. Since this is my last communication to you, I will go one step further.
I invite you and all of your staff to a public meeting to be arranged by your paper at any time at your convenience.I will only ask for five minutes to explain the mystery of the Bible and the Kingdom of God and afterwards I invite anyone to ask me any question they may have.
I normally do not respond to any self-justification, as there is no fruit in the self-justification of mankind. I will also ask that the meeting will be open to anyone else from the media. If you accept my invitation and depending how many people will be in attendance, I would like to suggest that you arrange for a microphone, so people will be able to hear the questions.
I also encourage you along with your reporters, to invite any of your theologian friends, or current and past religious leaders to be present and ask questions. In addition I will also make a complimentary copy of my book, available to all those in attendance.
My message of repentance from a year ago has not changed and as mentioned then, it should be the only thing that is important in your life, the lives of your family members, your employees and the people of Nova Scotia.
For an explanation of what it means to repent, I direct you to the article Repent listed on this website.
I will close with the words spoken by my brother Paul to the believers in Corinth.
For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but to us which are saved it is the power of God.
For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? (1 Cor. 1:17-20).
In His service.
