Before I start my story let me assure you that I am deadly serious and
ask that you read the whole text before you pass judgment on my sanity.
You see it has become popular among the 'politically correct' liberal
media industry to portray Bible believing people as nut cases. You may
have heard of me through radio, TV, or have seen me perform at a concert.
Some of you may have known me in my home town of Cleveland, Ohio. Most
of you don't know me at all. My hope is that you will now get a chance
to read my testimony and meet my best friend by knowing what he has done
I was born in 1958 in Cleveland and raised by Robert and Laura Merrick,
my parents. They did not get along and Dad drank allot. Let it suffice
to say life was not easy. At the age of seven I accepted Jesus as my savior
and began reading the Bible. At the age of 13 I was baptized by immersion
at Collinwood Christian Church. In that late spring I also was immersed
in the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues. That is where
the Holy Spirit comes into you and prays for you in an unknown language
(Angel's language) or a known language that you have not been taught (like
Spanish, Hebrew, Russian, etc..). The important thing is that you know
I had no idea what this was when it happened to me and that I was filled
with joy beyond any experience I had in my life before that.
As I grew up some things had to go. I had some bad experience as a
child and was abused by people who judged me by gossip, rumors, and lies
spread by those who thought by spreading them that they could protect themselves
from the results of their actions. I share this not to judge or condemn
these persons, just to let you know that being mistreated, kicked, beaten,
punched, cursed at, and other things was common place for me during my
childhood. The Bible says this is because of the name of the messiah that
we have these things happen to us. After awhile the abuse got to be a bit
much to take. Being called Jesus Freak and having my Bible kicked out of
my hand was deeply wounding to a young teenage boy. When I asked a Catholic
friend of mine why he was abusive to me if he was such a good Catholic
he told me " The priest told me that you are a heretic and I can do anything
I want to you because you are not in the TRUE church". These words would
haunt me in later life as I became aware of the god of this world and the
control of Satan in the affairs of men, governments, and religion.
Peer-Group pressure and the wanting of acceptance lead me to get involved
in testing of drugs and alcohol. My Doctor provided the pills and I stole
the alcohol from my dad. I went to just drinking to excess eventually and
was entered into a rehab facility in 1978.
Before that in 1975 I attended Bible college and left due to my conviction
that the truth of the Bible was not what the Bible college was teaching,
They had another gospel. This was what I like to call my crisis of faith.
I had none. I believed in the Creator and his son Yahshua, BUT I HAD NO
FAITH! The Bible says that even Satan believes and shakes at the thought,
but Satan is not saved!
In 1979 I joined the US Army and attended basic training at Fort Dix,
NJ and Aberdeen proving grounds MD. In 1981 I entered the offices training
program and was commissioned a second LT. in 1983 and attended Armor officers
basic at Fort Knox, KY. I later attended Armor Officers advanced training
at Fort Knox.
In 1987 a former Jesuit priest named Gerald Bull, now an arms engineer
with a large business selling weapons designs world wide, made a deal to
build a super-gun aimed at Israel for Iraq. Special teams designed to recon
as tourists were sent to the region under a top secret operation and diplomatic
channels were resourced to see what was going on.
In 1986 I had invested in real estate and did so using a course I purchased
from a TV show. I appeared on the show later on USA network as a successful
student. As a result of the new tax laws, theft on my credit cards, and
my first wives fathers involvement in the underworld, the IRS audited me
and The final result was I lost everything. My first wife was soon out
the door after.
The super-gun in Iraq financing was traced later to the Bank of Italy
posing as a Georgia USA banking investment firm buying parts in England
and the U.S. The funds for the project were traced to the Vatican. From
there a Swiss account that was held by Iraq. A secret dialog was established
with the Pope and an agreement was reached that resulted in a secret signing
of a Concordat (agreement with the catholic church that the pope is god
on earth) and diplomatic relations were established with the church as
a Country for the first time in history with the U.S. This laid the ground
work for a UN action against Iraq with papal permission. Which was just
what president Reagan and Bush wanted.
A short time after the war an agreement was made also between Israel
and the Vatican. 'In the hopes of establishing the New World Order's efforts
of unity between these countries' the media reported that diplomats had
come to these agreements, but the details were not disclosed. The pawn
had been played well and the US became the arm of Vatican diplomacy to
inspire Israel to become friends with the Catholic country.
By late 1989 my contacts were telling me that I should stop my inquiry
into these things and that my concerns as a Jew might be cause for some
alarm by the powers that be. Many of my friends in the Jewish community
were fringe sects that believed that the moves of the Zionists and the
US government was going in the same direction as Nazi Germany. I resigned
my commission and moved to private life.
My wife walked out the door at this time and left me to deal with foreclosure,
and all the ills that a self lead life leaves. Now let me say that this
was a women that saw food appear from sources unknown when I was between
jobs and we had nothing to eat. I walked out of my new job to find the
car full of bags of food. No person had been told of my need, except in
prayer. She left because she had no faith. I was sitting waiting for the
moving truck and decided to watch a TV evangelist. I had been crying and
was feeling very low as a result of all the lose in my life, basically
feeling sorry for myself. The evangelist on TV began to talk about a person
who was supposed to be a minister but went a wrong direction. He said that
he knew that this person was watching and wanted him to call now. I knew
from the way the TV evangelist was talking that he meant me. I said in
my head a small prayer explaining to God that the phone was disconnected
for non-payment 3 days before. That is when I heard a voice. Now let me
explain I WAS ALONE IN THE HOUSE. I HEARD A VOICE SAY "I TOLD YOU TO GO
PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL HIM". No it was not the TV evangelist who had
already begun to pray for other requests. The voice scared me so that I
jumped out of my chair and went in to the kitchen and picked up the phone.
IT WAS WORKING. I called and prayed with the pastor on the line. This was
the start of my return to walking in the will of the ALL Mighty Yah.
I moved to Pittsburgh and joined the Messianic Jewish (Jews who believe
in Jesus) community there. I had ordered the SABBATH KEEPERS DIRECTORY,
a listing of 7th day Sabbath keeping organizations and fellowships from
the Sabbath Sentinel, a small publication to 7th day communities across
the country. A friend of mine showed me a copy and I became concerned that
I had not gotten my copy yet. I called and found it had been mailed to
me and that done I checked with the post office, which still has not gotten
back to me! My friends copy was not so interesting to me upon first glance
in that I had never heard of the Branch Dividians. Page ONE first entry
of the directory was Branch Dividians, 7th day, listing. Later this had
more significance to me.
A friend called me and said that he had left the Army and joined a
group of people working on reestablishing constitutional law. He was going
to be in my area and thought I might have coffee with him. I did. He had
intercepted a message that caused him to be troubled, being a good catholic.
He found that certain cardinals in Rome were communicating with our government
prior to the event at waco referring to the event. He had gone through
a major faith crisis and wanted to talk with me more about what I knew
about the History of Catholic church and the Bible.
My friend said to me " I am scared to death, these men are going to
kill people because they don't agree with the new world order and the Catholic
Church's goals in that order". He didn't know what to believe anymore.
He now lives outside the US and fears for his life for what he knows. If
a one world government takes control of the free expression of faith in
the church, and passes laws, such as PAC (political action committee) laws
that limit pastors from making political comments, and uses that power
to influence spiritual concepts to fit their unholy goals, then the anti-Christ
has come, and he is more seductive and deceptive than ever thought before.
Early one spring morning I received a phone call that said, "we understand
you have considerable Bible knowledge". "I'm sure you have been watching
the news and we wondered if you might help us to negotiate with David Koresh".
I declined and referred them to a pastor I thought would help who declined
In 1993 Showtime did a movie about Gerald Bull and his involvement
in the events leading to the Gulf War and his murder. The content also
included the tracing of funds to the bank of Italy and just came short
of placing the finger where the blame lay.
In the 1800's the Catholic Church did legal battle in supreme court
with the 7th Day Adventist church and lost. The BLUE LAWS that were passed
preventing work on Sundays were the subject of the battle. The record shows
that the then pope, vowed to "destroy the bastion of Protestant faith in
America". Is he still working toward that end?
My friend and the phone call confirmed to me that the US agreement
of 1989 to establish diplomatic relations with the Vatican was for more
than just diplomatic relations, It was to test the laws of religious freedom
in this country. What better way than to plan a disinformation press coverage
of an unlawful BATF warrant.(See Waco the big lie, by Linda T.) The UN
world council of churches wants to establish a one world universal religion
and the only way to do that is to see if the American people would sit
and do nothing when the laws protecting religious freedom were tested by
violating the rights of a religious group. It is impossible to unite the
world's peoples if they hold religious doctrine that would oppose unity
with other religions such as Bible based evangelicals and 7th day groups
hold. In fact the very nature of these Bible based groups is opposed to
the doctrine of the anti- Christ and a one world religion's part in bringing
this beast (Satanic government) into power.
In 1993 I traveled to Russia and Ukraine with the Bible League. I then
went to Israel for the first time which was a very meaningful experience
for me. While in the Ukraine a lady ran up to me on the street to ask me
, through the translator, what God's name was in Hebrew. I was amazed that
the only person in our group that was aware of the fact of the sacred name
of YAH (see Daniel papers) was me. This and many other experiences proved
to me that the divine creator had ordered my paths long before I took them.
In Ukraine I found that during the communist occupation that the towns
in the former Soviet Union were given a choice to vote for a Catholic or
a Russian Orthodox church. The pastors told me that the KGB had agents
in all the churches and watched to insure that religion was taught only
in agreement with political controls. The recent laws passed in our country
reflect a similar control that requires that if a religious group wants
to express political opinions, they must first file as a Political Action
Committee. This is a deadly blow to free speech. I concluded that the one
world order is not only a member of the Catholic Church, but after the
KGB's example, a member of every church.
Anytime you hear 'we all worship that same god anyway' that is the
voice of your UN one world government. You see Yah Veh God says in his
ten commandments that the ends does not justify the means. Political religious
leaders don't have such morals. If you doubt what I am saying is true ask
yourself this: Which side was Italy on in W.W.II? Where did the German
gold go to? Why did it take over 2 years for pope pius XII to denounce
the Imperialist acts world wide and not once mention the killing of 6 million
Jews and 6 million Protestants in Hitler's rain of terror or offer apologies
for the Catholic church's part in that? (Feb 18,1946).
Linda T. in her video about Waco mentions THE CULT AWARENESS NETWORK
and the efforts of a former member of the Branch dividians with that group.
It is interesting to note that ALL local chapters of this organization
are headed by a Catholic. The Pittsburgh PA chapter is headed by a Catholic
nun. Most of their meetings are held in Catholic parishes. I'm not Catholic
bashing I'm just calling the shots where they LIE. If Satan was a CIA agent
where do you think he would infiltrate first?
Organized religion has failed to meet the spiritual needs of people
and has gone over to Satan's side. The founders of this country were PRO-TEST-TANTS
and fought to keep kings ,Queens, Congress, and Popes from having laws
against how we worship. Protestants were named such for protesting the
Catholic faith and country along with its dictator, the pope. At Waco,
the United States government broke many laws. Thereby establishing the
foundation to enforce more laws against so called 'cults' that don't agree
with the one world government and it's political religious agenda.
One point of interest for you to think on. UN resolution number 666
gave the UN power to seize any governments wealth, money, and holdings
in any bank in the world to pay for any joint UN action. This was done
under the pretense that it was to pay the US for the gulf war. The law
still remains in effect today. Revelation 13:16-18 says "he caused all
men both great and small...... to receive a mark in the right hand or in
the forehead....and no man could buy or sell save he had the mark,
or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let
him who understands count the number of the beast: for it is the number
of a man; 666." If you talk with any theological student of Bible prophesy
he will tell you that the word Beast means government in Bible prophesy.
As with Daniel's interpretation of the king of Babylon's dream when Daniel
tells him the beast you saw was a government.
Mt. Carmel (WACO) was originally founded by a 7th day Adventist women
who believed that the Feminine nature of the Holy Spirit, being that the
original word for Holy Spirit in Hebrew is feminine case, was something
which was deserving more in-depth study and prayer. The community was established
as a joint living common fellowship to help foster the presence of the
maternal nature of the Holy Spirit by living together.
Still no evidence exists that child abuse or molesting took place.
Still no evidence exists to prove that the gun that the BATF claimed was
the reason for the warrant to collect a $250 tax, ever existed. Still Janet
Reno, the BATF agents, the FBI, and the military commanders that violated
the passé com tatas act that prohibits use of US military equipment
against civilians and the Geneva convention remain unpunished for the crime
of murder. The laws of war prohibit the use of Fire on children. A cop
can't even hand-cuff a child under 18 in some states. SOP for any CS GAS
military training event is that fire prevention be present because the
Army knows that 'harmless' CS (tear) gas burns at 230 degrees F. It has
to in order to form the crystals that cause crying and blindness. CS gas
when used in civilian police operations is never done without the firemen
present. IT IS SOP (Standard Operating Procedure). The temperature that
day in Waco was well over 90 and the compound was all wood construction.
The truth be told the conspiracy is so high and deep that the only
hope this country has is a return to the truth of the Bible. NOT RELIGION
BUT BIBLE which says: " we fight not against flesh and blood, but domains
and powers of spiritual wickedness in high places". Perhaps David Koresh
was right after all, and the seven seals of Revelation he wanted to write
about was the very reason he had to die. Let me clear up one thing right
now on what I believe about the United States. This country has exsisted
from it's conception for one purpose only, to publish (print) the Bible
in every language of the world. Nothing more.
Matthew 24:14 "This gospel of the Kingdom shall be published in all the
world for a witness to all nations; and then the end shall come."
If you think that this is a little far fetched and that I am a little
off. How could a 2000 year old prophesy be coming true today before our
eyes. That perhaps I am suggesting that Satan himself has come in the flesh
and is about to take over the world. You might ask what was the reason
for the murder of those children and their pastor who wanted to write about
the prophesies of the Bible referring to the anti-Messiah. If Yahshua (Jesus)
was real, and he was, Satan is real too. Being a Bible student myself I
If you think I have been watching to much TV then you might read Genesis
about the first time mankind tried to unite the world in opposition to
God, it's called the tower of babble. Babylon is written of over and over
in Revelation. Could there be a significant reason that this word Babylon
and what originally happened there is used in this prophesy to refer to
the formation of a one world order? If it is not Satan himself, the men
in charge of this new one world order are sure a worthy substitute for
the prince of darkness. If Yah God works through people, doesn't Satan?
A friend of mine at Ft. Lewis, WA told me they are storing 109 guillotines
shipped there from China under the favored trading status agreement a few
years back. Why is our government buying guillotines from China? The Bible
says that in the last days before Christ returns that those who believe
in him will be beheaded for their faith. It seems to me that things just
add up to much in favor of thinking this is all true. By the way, Why did
an CIA operations chief disappear? Why would a General kill himself? Over
medals and decorations out of place? NO. Men of intelligence don't kill
themselves unless they have lost all hope. These men knew what I know and
paid for it with their lives because they had hard evidence. If Satan did
come where do you think he would show up first being a master of deception?
Most likely in Church, where he has been working for centuries.
" Even Satan appears to be an angle of light, so marvel not if his
ministers appear to be ministers of righteousness" IICorinthians Chapter
11, the Holy Bible.
"This day can not come until the son of perdition come first...with all
deceivableness' and lying signs and wonders....setting himself up in the
temple of Yahweh, showing himself that he is Yahweh." II Thessalonians
Chapter 2, the Holy Bible.
That is my story. That in my life I watched the Bible taken out of
our schools in the USA. In my life I knew men, women, and children that
had a chance to escape the religions of the world. Some choose salvation
while others choose money, status, and position. I have studied with hours
of research in library after library all over the world. I have seen unspeakable
acts of selfishness and violence and never heard of acts of kindness and
love. I have come to this conclusion. Religion, any religion that seeks
power, money, political position, or status, is not what the Messiah Yahshua
was speaking about when he came. He was talking about eternal life through
faith in HIS Name. He was taking about being willing to die for your fellow
man. In the ARMY officers have an expression: 'falling on your sword'.
The saying originates form Roman times but today in the US it means taking
the heat for your troops. Taking the punishment for the little guy under
you who works hard to help you get promotions, when he makes a mistake.
Although this may not be attractive to most today, the results are just
like what the savior did for the whole world. He was killed for our sin
even though he was not guilty.
My life so far was not perfect. Just ask my sister and she'll give
you an ear full of what she thinks of me. But the important thing here
is not Me but you. What I mean is that we all have to stop looking outward
and focus on ourselves. So some kids were cruel to me in High school. So
some choices I made in life were wrong. So the Catholic church had inquisitions.
That is not going to change anything in me. Only an internal change in
me can be reflected in the external world to improve my life and effect
others. And that can only happen by the divine miracle of trusting Yah
(God) at His word the Bible. That is why my faith is messianic, because
I am following a person who was the Messiah, not a religion, pastor, party,
singer, guru, or whatever. The only thing besides love that has meant anything
in my life is the Messiah Yahshua and the Bible, His word. The best thing
I can tell you if you are searching is what the Bible says:
"In order to be saved, you must first believe that Yah Veh God is,
and is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him."
Many have said of me that I am this or that (I shall not get into accusations
made against me). But if the truth be said there is one thing that my life
and education has shown of my heart, I diligently seek HIM. From the
one who is given much forgiveness, much is required.
The Bible prophets said that there would be a generation of man that would
see the coming of the Messiah to put an end to man's governments and the
world's religious systems to establish an everlasting kingdom. That is
the hope, faith, and trust that I have in the Messiah Yahshua. That what
he said was true, and that that knowledge with His Holy Spirit could bring
me through every trial and problem of life and death. The warning we have
that I pass on to you is that first the anti-messiah will come claiming
to be messiah.
Repent, for the kingdom of Yah Vah is at hand! That is the message
that Yahshua Messiah spoke when he walked the earth. The important thing
I want to express to you is not that Catholics are bad. Catholics are people
just like you and me. Any person in any religion is Just another person
like any other. We all are subject to the same experience, joy, and pain.
Germany before World War II blamed the Jewish race and religion for their
economic condition. That is a prejudgment I do not desire to make concerning
the Catholic people. But that in mind, any religion that teaches doctrine
void of love and a personal prayer relationship with Yahshua Messiah who
is bar none the best example of love, is not the truth the Bible teaches
The Messiah Yahshua was tried and did not answer back in the face of false
accusation. He taught that religion void of the truth of a friendship with
Yah Veh God, was vain worship. He said speaking of the Jewish scribes and
religious leaders concerning their Biblical practice of the law: "all that
they teach you do". He also said not to follow their example of saying
one thing and doing another. I have a personal friendship in prayer and
experience with Yahshua Messiah and Yah Vah the creator. To me, religion,
both Christian and Jewish, has doctrine that is against that type of simple
faith. Faith that says 'I do not judge you, go and sin no more'. My favorite
example of religion and it's teaching is Ireland. Catholics kill Protestants
and Vise Versa. That is not the faith of the Messiah.
In 1993 I was baptized again in the name of Yahshua reconfirming my faith
in the one true creator God, maker of all that is. Since that time I have
rested on the 7th day Sabbath for the blessing that following Yah Vah's
commandments bring. My doctrine is messianic FAITH not religion. What makes
me different and willing to change to follow the teachings of Yahshua Messiah
is the fact that I made that choice and received the gift of love and the
Holy Spirit, which is the spirit that makes me desire to be holy. Self-righteous
religion that judges others based on a set of rules void of the law of
love is the experience of mankind in history. That is a sad fact. And that
is why I believe in the only faith that made love and selflessness it's
central teaching. The teaching that all are adopted into one family of
12 brothers who made up 12 tribes. Where both Jew and Gentile are one family
in spirit, love and faith. The faith that follows Messiah Yahshua and his
example of being faithful to love unto death. No religion in the world
teaches that. Only FAITH in Yahshua Messiah and his teaching 'to do to
others as you would have done to you' and the friendship with Yah Vah God
in an eternal family and kingdom of love can offer true change. It is that
faith that has caused men throughout history to stand against kings and
evil rulers in that face of death to improve mans condition selflessly.
History is my witness to that fact. And my life has been a prayerful attempt
to share that truth in love, following the eternal best example of that
love, Yahshua the Messiah.
John 3:16 & 17 "For Yah Vah God loved the world and its people so
very much, that he sent His one and only son into that world; that who
ever believes in him, would not parish, but have eternal life. For Yah
Vah God did not send his son into the world to condemn the world and it's
people, but that the world might be saved through him. "
