===================================================================== Note: The following is reprinted from the Nov-Dec 1988 issue of the "CUFORN Bulletin". UFONET has permission to reprint any material that CUFORN publishes. - Tom Mickus ===================================================================== T H E L A S T T R U M P E T by Ben Obina Live for tomorrow and not for today, for the sound of the last trumpet is slowly drawing near. Let me tell you about myself. When I was 5, (now I'm 20), through a dream that I had, a dream that has been dwelling in my mind ever since.. I had what most people would consider an 'encounter'. In my dream I was in a bright white room lying on a table. I recall seeing 2 beings who were examining me. A device resembling a large microscope was directly over my head. I also remember it emitting a high pitched sound. I thought nothing of it until I reached 15.. when I was suddenly compelled and driven to read books on U.F.O.'s, and I have done so ever since. Now, I have formed an overall picture of what 'they' are about, and why they are here. To me it all makes sense. I have often considered hypnosis to find out if I have been contacted more than once in my dreams, I'm sure that I have, but that will all come in time. On three occasions I have also spotted U.F.O's in the skies of Toronto. They are not hard to find, a person can usually spot a U.F.O. if he or she tries. The next several paragraphs will be basically dealing with what I have read in books and by talking to others during the past 5 years. I found that all good U.F.O. books contain similar material, you read one.. you've read them all. I try to keep a low profile when touching on this subject with others, already I have been referred to as a 'crackpot' and also have been ridiculed. But I assure you people will 'definitely' understand in time, their minds aren't yet trained to handle this sort of information. I suggest that you read this letter with an open heart and with an open mind. The following may conflict with other beliefs you might have. Why are the U.F.O's here?.. and do they exist? U.F.O's are definitely real, and are here for a purpose. The occupants are the 'guardians' of humanity. The occasional appearances of these 'cosmic missionaries' is living proof that we are not alone in the universe. Throughout time and history they have kept a 'watchful' eye and have been always interested in the affairs of man. Sadly though, their existence has been concealed, ignored and ridiculed. It is only just recently that they have been alarmed by the dangerous turn of events on earth. - countries have been governed by lies of which the truth is concealed. - shamelful acts of violence are considered acts of heroism and bravery. - we are not taking care of ourselves enviromentally and spiritually. - they are dissatisfied with contemporary social and economic injustices. - hate, selfishness and mismanagement amongst humanity. - religion has been twisted and turned into fanaticism. - the testing and advancement of nuclear weapons. As the guardians of mankind, they can only 'condemn' our actions, but they realize that a wasted evolution and an inescapable cataclysm will be the final consequence of our 'inhuman' behaviour. What does this all mean? As prophesied in the Bible, "On judgement day, Christ will descend from the heavens in a cloud with great power and glory, and will reveal himself to all the tribes of the earth." Luke 21:28. Also forseen is the fateful course we are presently taking, "The heavans shall pass away with a great noise, the elements shall melt with a fervent heat, and the earth, and also the works therein shall be burned up." Peter 3:10-14. In the Old Testament there are 30 references to Christ's first coming. In the New Testament there are 50 specific references to Christ's 'second' coming. I also stress that the earth is _not_ following a path towards complete annihilation, as in 'blowing itself to pieces'. Our planet 'will' stay intact, and it will enter a 'new age', a 'transition' for all that is left. Our planet's destiny can only be decided by mankind's actions. I have read many versions of the catastrophic events leading up to judgement day, and also what will actually 'happen' on judgement day. Everything from a nuclear war, to an axis-shift, to a mass suicide by those who cannot accept the facts. Do we really know the truth?.. only 'they' know. In the near future, an important event that no human mind should be uninformed about will take place. It will come unexpectedly at a time of great need. There will be no need to ask 'why' or 'how' because all questions will be answered and all doubts will be laid to rest. Look forward to this event, and do not fear it, because soon 'all' will awaken and realize that 'fiction' will become 'fact'. Those who do not understand do not want to know. The truth is disturbing and will make one feel skeptical, but if understood with an open mind.. it can and 'must' be accepted. When the time comes, my purpose is to 'assist' and to let the people know and understand. I am just one of the many thousands around the world who have been randomly selected to slowly prepare the people and to gradually spread the message. We are all part of a worldwide program of 'psychological conditioning' before, and when this moment arrives. There is 'one' basic message that these beings are attempting to relay to all of mankind. It is as follows: "Space beings are the guardians of humanity. They are the messengers of the Ultimate Creator. Present task is to monitor the earth and assist in judgement day that will soon be upon humanity. They will be responsible for a 'mass' lift off of Gods 'true followers' and for the care of these people on another world while the earth is cleansed in a crucible of fire and destruction." Traces of the beings 'basic message' can be found in the Bible passages relating to judgement day, despite the fact they are written in vague and symbolic terms. Notice how the people are to be "judged". Notice how the believers of God's word are to be "raised from the dead". Notice what is meant when the Bible mentions the "home of the saved". Is it purely coincidental that most contactees have similar thoughts of 'permanent relocation' and a different earth within the next 10 years? In reference to judgement day, the Bible often "implies" the word "rapture". The actual word is not found in the Bible because sometimes Christians have a tendency to toss out misunderstood words which have no meaning to the Non-Christian. I suggest that you look up the word in the dictionary, you will be astonished at it's meaning and how it ties in with the beings 'basic message'. If you are shaking your head over this right now, please remember how many 'impossibles' you have said in your lifetime. Or how many 'impossibles' men throughout the ages have said to many things God has revealed through His spokesman. And yet they were possible, because nothing is 'impossible' for God. I could tell you how their ships travel through space; how they tie in with religion and the Bible; how they tie in with the destruction of previous civilizations that once flourished on earth; how they tie in with ancient mythology etc, etc. .. but I won't. I already revealed to you what one 'only' need to know.. how they will influence the future. Those questions and others will be definitely answered very soon, highly likely within our own lifetime. Whether this so-called catastrophe is physical, natural or spiritual, I know 2 things for certain. An event of great importance to mankind will occur prior to judgement day. An event that will enlighten us about the nature of our existence. An event that will signify that mankind is entering a 'new age', a 'transition', .. perhaps the end. "In a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the last trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall all be changed." I Corinthians 15:52 NASB.
