The Holy Spirit has prompted me to write about a great danger facing the United States at this time, which is also a call for strong prayer on behalf of our nation. A Christian who is not informed is not able to pray fervently, to fast and seek the Lord. Godís servant, Daniel, is one of the greatest intercessors recorded in the Bible, and when he read in the books about the prophecy given to Jeremiah in Jerusalem, and he realized that the time had come for their deliverance, yet nothing was happening, he fasted and bombarded heaven with prayer. (Daniel 9:1-23)
The danger facing our nation today is from all of our intelligence agencies which are out of control and in the hands of foreign nationals who are using these agencies to further the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT! Most Americans are decent law abiding citizens, do not have "a criminal mind," and thus cannot comprehend the rot and the treason which is everyday business in the FBI, NSA (National Security Agency), BATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms), the CIA, DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) and the different branches of intelligence from the Air Force, Navy and Army, to the Postal Inspection Service, plus many more.
The business of all these agencies is not to find the truth and use that in the protection of America, it is rather the obstruction of justice to make sure that the American people do not know the truth in matters that concern our national interest and security, and to cover up for World Government leaders. Then, if necessary, they assassinate anyone who is a threat to the establishment. Before we begin our study of Robert Hansen, the latest FBI agent who was caught as a spy for the Russians, I want to share my personal experience.
MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
When I arrived as an immigrant to the United States in 1963 I was very naive. I believed that all Americans were God fearing people, honest, upright and that the United States government was an impeccable moral institution, dedicated to truth, freedom and peace. At that time as the Vietnam war was beginning to heat up, I supported the American policy 100% and was ready myself to join the army and "kill a bunch of commies," who I hated from years back. It was Godís grace that kept me out. I had registered with the Selective Service and was called up for induction and classified as 1-A. Only a few days before my departure date to basic training, the president exempted all married men. A few years later as 50,000 men per month were drafted, the law was changed; married men without children had to go, but the age limit was 27. I had just turned 28, and today I am more than thankful that I did not have to go. In the meantime I did not know that God was going to give me a hands-on education in understanding intelligence operations. Here is what happened.
THE U. S. COLONEL
When I recall this story, I cannot but remember the Sacramento County Jail. In 1985, I was ministering for about a year to an inmate who was waiting for his trial and sentencing. The man told me about the "elevator rides." During the night shift, guards would, at times, take out a prisoner from a cell, take him to the elevator and stop between floors. There would always be about four guards and one prisoner on the ride. Once they had stopped the elevator between floors, they would start beating the inmate with their fists in a way to leave no marks. When they were done, the inmate was in excruciating pain. The favorite targets of the guards were the kidneys. The inmate would then be told that if he reported this, the next beating would be worse. All inmates were intimidated in this way into great fear. One mistake, and the next night it would be his turn for a ride in the elevator.
Some time ago I met with a retired police official from a city in the eastern part of the United States. The man was a deeply committed Christian and he told me that part of his job as a supervisor was to protect the incarcerated inmates from his police officers.
He told us a few things that he had done for the U. S. Government, but said that he had been told, if he ever let the truth out, he would be killed and so would his family. Shortly after this, Harold moved to another city, wanting to escape the memories of civilians trying to flee from merciless soldiers firing their guns, while little children, screaming and crying for help, got nothing but a bullet to forever silence them. Harold also told me that his unit operated in the United States and exterminated people who the CIA wanted to eliminate.
One day in 1964, some government officials came to their home and told Susanís mother that her husband had died during his work assignment and had been buried. There was nothing the family could do. They were told to keep quiet and just go on with their lives. For many years Susan believed her father was dead. Then some 20 years later she received a phone call from Australia. The caller was her father. Here is what he told his daughter: "I was part of the CIA operation in the assassination of President Kennedy, and afterwards I was given a choice, either to be executed or relocate to Australia under a new name and never again contact my family or come back to the United States."
For some 20 years he had lived in exile, longing to see his children and his wife, but knowing he could not. Now, having a terminal illness, he broke his silence in order to at least talk to his family again. Susan contacted a church close to where her dad lived in Australia. He went to the church and they led him to Christ before he died. Did Susan lie about this? I donít think so.
THE PUBLIC RELATIONS
Being a pastor in a region like this, it is obvious that men and women from the military would come to our church and become members. Many of these people had problems in their personal lives, and when I started to help them and talk to them, many of the problems stemmed from involvement in secret projects. It is one thing to be a member of a secret unit that is involved in defending our nation. But it is a totally different thing to be part of a group which is involved in illegal activities, often very harmful to the people targeted.
One of these many service people in our church was employed as a public relations officer and his job was to speak to the media when there was a problem. The man was in a mess, his marriage on the rocks and the children into drugs and rebellion. I will call this man "Barry." When I talked to Barry I realized that he was "a paid professional liar." His job was to have a press conference, and then lie and lie again to the media. Why was he asked to lie? Because the Air Force was doing things which were illegal and morally wrong, and this had to be protected so that the American people would not find out the real truth. Barry ended up divorcing his wife who had become a lesbian.
THE KGB AGENT
My other source, who had been a coordinator for work behind the Iron Curtain and stationed in Germany, told me that when Victor had visited an unregistered church, it did not take long for the KGB to come in and arrest the pastor and all leaders. Churches in the Soviet Union were afraid to have a visit from Victor.
Some people who had been with him on a recent trip told me that he had warehouse space in Western Europe, but very little was ever shipped over to the suffering church. In the meantime he was visiting American churches, showing slides and telling "dripping sentimental stories," which resulted in large offerings given to him.
Victor settled in Sacramento and opened a "Christian" bookstore, but he had no further contact with me.
THE LIAR FROM SWEDEN
Stig found out where my parents lived in Sweden and began to call them every day, speaking flattery about their son. He came by to drop off money and offered to help in any way he could. He wrote me letters and told me about his deep commitment to Christ. After this went on for about ten months, we started to believe the man. He had a very sweet wife and great children. (At that time we were not aware that even the family knew nothing about his involvement as an agent for the IB).
In 1984, my mother retired from her job. We had talked for a long time about having them come over and live with us in California. Stig and his wife said that they wanted to come also, and to make preparations, Stig and his wife and son came over in late 1983 to scout out the land. It was agreed that my parents along with Stig and his wife were to buy a duplex together, which was done in 1984 when my parents moved from Sweden. In 1985 Stig and his wife came over. Since I had become very trusting, Stig had access to our files and inner working of the ministry. The Swedish Prime Minister, Olof Palme, was murdered on a street in Stockholm, Sweden in 1986, and I will never forget when I brought this news to Stig. His face became white with fear, and the next day he informed me that he wanted to sell his part of the duplex at once and return to Sweden. From being sweet and polite, he became angry and demanding. In 24 hours our friendship was gone, and was replaced with anger and hate. My brother and I had to scramble to borrow enough money to cash him out of the duplex. The "dead give-away" was how quickly he moved out of the duplex and while waiting for a few weeks to ship all his belongings back to Sweden, he moved in with the KGB agent, Victor, to whom I had never introduced him or told him about.
In the meantime all "hell broke loose" around me, as the Swedish security police started to name me as a suspect in the murder of the prime minister, while releasing all kinds of information to the Swedish media. It did not take long for the FBI to come knocking on the door of our home, telling me that they had been ordered to investigate the murder for the Swedish government. That I was not in Sweden at the time of the murder made no difference! A picture of my Swedish book was on the first page of every major newspaper in Sweden, including pictures of audio cassettes that I had recorded in Swedish. We were not the only Christian group blamed for the murder; this was the golden opportunity for the socialists in Sweden to get rid of Christians, and the murder was blamed on organizations like Womenís Aglow, the Full Gospel Businessmenís International Fellowship, fundamental Swedish Pentecostal churches, and others. The result was that many Swede's believed this propaganda, and it took many months before hate calls and letters stopped coming in. (To this very day the murder is still unsolved).
But Stig was not yet done with me. When he went back to Sweden he settled once again in my old home town, and developed a really close friendship with my only uncle left in Sweden. He kept pumping my uncle for information on us, but since my uncle was not closely involved in our ministry, there was little he could tell.
Judgment from God fell on Stig some years later, when he had a massive stroke, and is now just waiting for the day he will die. Stig died sometime in mid 2003
Due to strong animosity and death threats, we are not going to write the segment at this time. My wife, my brother and a staff member pointed out to me, after I had written this segment and shared it with them, that it was not worth taking the risk of my being killed. Knowing the mindset of Derek, I have no choice than to withhold this information for now. As my brother told me, "What can you do from the grave?" But I hope that you who are reading this newsletter will understand that the battle is real and that the Devil is ruthless. (John 10:10)
It took us a long time to recover from the emotional blow of being so deeply betrayed. But now I know that when a man or woman signs up to work for an intelligence service, they lose their souls and become ruthless and without any human feelings of mercy and grace.
THE U. S. MARINE
He lifted his hands and told me that with these I can do incredible destruction, and I know what kind of devastation I can do. One of the places that he told me his unit was sent was to Angola, in Africa. They worked with the then White African government and the pro-western Angolans (FLNA-UNITA) in fighting the communists (MPLA) in Angola. The role of his unit was not only to wage war against soldiers, but to waste and clear out civilian population in order to create fear and break the back of the Communist Government forces.
For years I have known that American soldiers had been fighting in many small wars all over the world, but every president of the United States would swear that the USA was not involved. We, the American people, were told that there were no U.S. ground troops fighting in Angola, we were only giving the UNITA forces weapons, ammunition and finances.
When I looked at Donald, who was in his late 40's, I saw a man who had been trained to be a professional murderer. He had been turned loose on men, women and children, and now he was back in the United States as a civilian, trying to live a normal life, but never getting away from the bloody faces, the screams, the moaning from people dying, and the intense screaming of little children as they were chased down and killed.
But God is faithful, despite all these attacks our ministry is still going strong, people are being saved, healed and delivered, marriages have been put back together and God is still on His throne and will be forever.
What has happened to me and our ministry is happening to many others. They just donít talk about it.
But the worst onslaught is against our own nation, and we need to pray and fast that the Devil and his crowd shall not be able to overcome America and bring us into captivity. Iím convinced that only prayer and fasting will stop the attacks.
Next month I will begin laying out some truths that will drive you to prayer, as you find out how bad it really is. All of the people I have talked with had the same thing in common, they were disillusioned, cynical and having no faith whatsoever in the American government and all the different law enforcement agencies, the military and the intelligence community. What a tragedy. Many of them were afraid that if they talked too much, they would be killed.
Please pray for me, because what I am now sharing is not well liked by the Devil and his workers. But most of all, pray and fast for our nation!
1. Editorís Note: Towards the end of WWII, as a teenager, I remember being extremely upset when I read in the newspaper that our forces, ready to go into Berlin, were ordered to stop and wait so that the Russian troops could get there first. I asked, "Why are we allowing those communists to take Berlin when we are well able to do it?" Russia was brought into the allied forces at the very end of the war. They werenít even needed.
