I hope to point you to books written by good and God fearing men and women, authors who have done much investigative research in order to discern truth from the lies fed to the world today by the power elite. The purpose is to give you an education you will hardly find anywhere else. Knowledge is power! The Bible in Hosea 4:6a says, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: If you want to study about the New World Order conspiracy, don’t just watch Youtube videos about it, read some books! “What books?” you ask? You can start with the list of books on this website.
I recommend 16th to 19th century authors and a couple of early 20th century authors such as Jeremiah J. Crowley and L. H. Lehmann. Their books contain the real history of the author’s day, and not mere school textbook history which is often biased by the educators who wrote it. For example, on this site you can learn the facts about Abraham Lincoln’s assassination, and who really was behind it based on testimonials of people who actually knew Lincoln face to face such as Charles Chiniquy who wrote ““Fifty Years in the Church of Rome” which is on another website I linked to. There is only one fairly recent book I recommend which was published in 1999, “Rulers of Evil” by F. Tupper Saussy. He correctly identifies the problem and what to do about it.
What I am doing now
Last year in 2016 I hitchhiked to various parts of Japan, specifically to Aomori Prefecture, the Kanto area (Tokyo, Saitama, Tochigi and Chiba), Nagano Prefecture and the Kansai area (Osaka & Kobe) to work on various job to earn money to support myself and pay for the hosting of this website. As I sit next to the driver who picked me up, I share with him or her the Gospel of salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ. Unlike North Americans or the average native English speaker, most of the Japanese people have never heard it even once in their lives.
This year in 2017, except for a trip to the Osaka area, I’ve been home in Niigata city recovering from an prostrate gland affliction and working on my other website, Deep Truths. I am hoping and praying 2017 will be a year of new beginnings for me and greater fruitfulness for God’s Kingdom. I may leave leave Niigata which has been my home since 2002 to go to greener pastures and have more opportunities to share the Gospel with the Japanese. From February 2nd., I began working on translation of a tract from English to Japanese. You can read the tract from this link.
