How God Leads And Guides The Nations, Past And Present

Ancient prophecies and modern history need each other. The one fulfills the other and proves the God of the Bible Omniscient, knowing all things in advance, as He has claimed all along through the prophets. Isa. 46:10. Most Christians have believed the prophecies, even if they didn’t study them very much. But how intimately the Creator involves Himself in the fulfillment of prophecy with individuals in our day is something we have not studied very much.

Yet, Jesus is a prime example of how the Creator introduced Himself into human history in 4 BC for “operation rescue” of a race about to disintegrate itself into non-existence. In our study today I want to introduce you to what I believe is a new concept in the study of prophecy. I have chosen to call it a study of “prophetic metaphors.” Hopefully, this will become obvious as the article progresses.

This research has taken long hours and days of research with many interruptions of various sorts. My investigation into the life of a certain famous celebrity was prompted by a statement that was made about this famous movie star most everyone has heard about. I knew very little about her myself but someone stated that this movie star was the “first presidential model,” like Cathy O’brien. Well, in a sense she was, but I do not believe that Marilyn Monroe was part of any MK Ultra government project, during the Kennedy administration. I don’t even know if the program existed then or when it began. From the information I have been able to uncover, Marilyn Monroe was more or less like Judith-Exner. The only difference was that MM became a loose cannon who had to be eliminated. There is conclusive evidence that points to Murder. I am offering two excellent documentary videos on her life. One goes into detail, showing clearly how Marilyn was murdered. The cost for both programs is only $10.95. But that is not the most important or most interesting discovery of this research.

What I learned is how God allowed MM and the Kennedy’s to become “prophetic metaphors.” What I mean by this is that the Lord used the choices they made to illustrate the prophecies of Rev. 17 and 18. At the conclusion of this article I will share with you from Scripture how I believe God will deal with MM, the Kennedys and all the lost of the ages, in the final judgment, after the 1,000. You might be surprised at my conclusions. I invite you to investigate them thoroughly for yourself to see if you can prove me wrong. What I found out about MM and Kennedys really made me sad. I really didn’t know anything about Marilyn Monroe…had only seen a couple of clips or scenes of one or two of her movies. I had never read one single book about her. Why? I just wasn’t interested, that is, until I found out that she was so intimately involved with John and Robert Kennedy. My opinion of them and the whole Kennedy family was very high. My research changed that dramatically. However, watching the videos and reading the many biographies made me feel like I knew them as well as any member of my own family. I will say more about this at the close of this article. There has never been any public confession of their sins on the part of any family member. Sadly, the cover-up continues to this day. So, how will God deal with them in the judgment? This will be answered in-depth at the close of this article.

This research only further confirmed my suspicions that the deceptions of these last days are much greater than we have ever imagined. It is my sincere prayer that this article will help you to wake up, which means to “become aware” of what is going on in this world, before it is too late. I believe the Lord has led me to write this ground breaking article to help us see how events in our time are metaphors or illustrations He is using to help us understand more clearly the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation. May the Lord bless you as you are challenged to think deeply as you read this article. mfc.

How God Uses The Machinations Of Men And
Women To Accomplish His Purpose

One of the mightiest kings who ever lived made this testimony about our Creator. “He does according to His will in the host of heaven. And among the inhabitants of earth; And no one can ward off (strike against) His hand or say to Him, ‘What hast thou done?” Dan. 4:35. Because this is true, it follows then, that the lives of public figures, past and present, are on public display for a specific reason and purpose. Even a quick overview of the Bible tells us that God teaches lessons through specific individuals. Look at how much space is devoted to the life of Abraham and how little is given to Isaac. And Jacob even gets more space than both of them. Genesis 12 to 25:8 are on the life of Abraham. Isaac is from Gen. 25:9 to 28:5. Then Jacob (Israel) and his family occupy the rest of the book of Genesis until his death in Gen. 50.

The rest of the Pentateuch, i.e., Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy is a record of God’s dealing with the twelve sons of Jacob. Actually, the rest of the entire Bible is about those twelve tribes and various individuals from them, including Jesus, who was of the tribe of Judah. God selects people whose lives He wants us to examine. The two best examples of this are Moses and David. Moses’ life is detailed throughout the Pentateuch. More space is devoted to these two men’s lives than any other, except for Christ Himself. David’s life is detailed in most of six books, beginning with 1 Samuel to 2 Chronicles. Then, of course, the life of Jesus is the focus of the entire New Testament. The second most famous person in the New Testament is the Apostle Paul, who wrote 14 of its 27 books. Then look at how much space is given in the entire Bible to prophecy. We have Daniel and Ezekiel in the OT, along with all the minor prophets, and then, of course, the New Testament prophecies, especially the book of Revelation.

As I began to recognize this pattern and design throughout the Bible I verbalized a thought that had been building in the back of my mind, now demanding an answer: Is it possible that the same pattern has continued through the ages up to our day? That’s when I started taking a long second look at the lives of people in our day. That brought me to a second question: Is God any less involved in our lives today than in times past? The answer was, “Yes.” He is still guiding and leading in every person’s life, as He always has been, according to His very own Word. And, just as in Bible times, those people He wants us to study and look at get the most space and publicity. The pattern has not changed. Some are good, some in between, and some are just plain bad. The same is true for nations. And people are always associated with nations. For example, Napoleon was from France. George Washington is called the father of our country and Thomas Jefferson the father of the constitution. Abraham Lincoln is known as the great emancipator. Luther and Hitler were from Germany. John Wesley and many other reformers were from the British Isles. And on it goes, the list is endless.

We have studied these lives from books written by those who knew them. Just as the Bible and history books go into detail about people’s lives I have searched out as much detail about MM and the Kennedy’s as possible, so we can know them as well as we know any of our own family. Why? Because, I want you to understand why they did what they did. I loved John Kennedy. He was my hero. When he died I cried a lot, just as many of you probably did. My opinion of him was very high, even though he was of a different religious persuasion. I believed JFK had a good moral character and had no doubt that he would come up in the first resurrection with the saints. But as I have become intimately acquainted with JFK’s father, Joseph P. Kennedy, and his mother Rose, and brother Robert, I have come to a different conclusion. It is possible that you may too as you read this article. But that is your decision to make. The books, “Seeds of Destruction,” and “Sins of the Father,” reveal more than we ever wanted to know. Even though they were brought up strictly by their very Catholic mother, they chose rather to follow their father’s example. Like him, they were very worldly and immoral. I think you will conclude with me that their fate will be the “Lake of Fire.” I think Marilyn Monroe will be there too.

Today we have much more sophisticated equipment to record people’s lives. Isn’t that interesting in the light of the fact that we are living in the time of the investigative judgment when a person’s life can be and often is analyzed down to last little eyebrow, hair follicle, fingernail and DNA sample? This is also causing history to be re-written. An example of this is the “Warren Report” on the death of Pres. Kennedy. God did not allow the lies and cover-up surrounding his assassination to be exposed until about 20-25 years after his death. But why? I believe it all has to do with at least two points. First of all, the book of Revelation predicts a terrible conflict between a lamb and an awful beast. These animals represent powers, nations and conglomerates of powers that are to be arrayed against the people of God in the final hour of earth’s history. We need to know our enemy who is also God’s enemy. But most importantly, we need to know how God relates Himself to His enemies. In the sermon on the mount Jesus taught us: “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he makes his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” Matt.5:44, 45.

But before we can have the wisdom to know any of this we must know the real truth about God and His character. Unless we know this we can never figure out the prophecies and understand what is really going on. Dan. 12 predicted that only the “wise” would be given the spiritual discernment to know the real meaning of the final events. The rest of humanity would dwell in darkness, “deceiving and being deceived,” (2 Tim. 3:13) without clue one as to what is really going on before their very eyes. “Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand: but the wise shall understand.” Dan. 12:10. Do you want to be one of the wise who have “insight? as the NAS translates it? When Jesus asked His disciples who they thought He was, Peter, speaking for all 12, boldly declared: “You are the Christ (anointed) the Son of the living God.” How did Peter know this? How did he figure it out?

Well, Peter himself didn’t know until Jesus emphatically told him. “And Jesus answered him, ‘Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jona! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.” Matt. 16:15-17. Then in v. 18 Jesus added that upon this “rock of truth” Peter had just verbalized, He would build His church and the very gates of hell would not be able to prevail against it. What an incredibly encouraging promise that in these terrible, frightening last days of earth’s history God is going to preserve and protect His people throughout the final tribulation.

“So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman (false church) sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” Rev. 17:3. John also described this woman in v. 5 as having a name written in her forehead, “Mystery, babylon the great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth.” In v. 6 the KJV says John “wondered with great admiration.”

Other versions say that John was “astonished, shocked and just marvelled,” as he saw and even admired this incredibly beautiful female. When artists have painted this woman on canvass they consistently give her face an appearance and look of unmistakable and obvious evil. But after reading the life of one very famous actress, an altogether different picture has formed in my mind as to why John marvelled when he saw this woman. Why was John so shocked? And what was he admiring and wondering about?

People born in the same time frame or period of history are called contemporaries. John and Robert Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe were contemporaries. This was no accident for the Creator claims that all souls belong to Him. Ezek. 18:4. He told Jeremiah that He knew Him before he was born. Psalm 139 expands on this theme. After reading several books on Marilyn’s life and viewing three documentary videos, my mind has begun to analyze it all. Every problem and mystery in life has a spiritual solution. When I began to look at the life of Marilyn Monroe (MM) from that perspective some very deep insights began to emerge from her shadowy past. She continues to be the most popular and famous female movie goddess of all time. On pages 90-91 of Anthony Summer’s best seller, “Goddess” (1986), he reveals that by 1952 MM was receiving “more than 5,000 fan letters a week.” She was more publicized than Rita Hayworth or the Queen of England. That same year in Hollywood Marilyn had descended from a helicopter in a flaming red dress that offended everyone except the paparazzi (Free Lance writers and photographers who are sometimes rude and intrusive). The occasion was the unveiling of a song written just for MM entitled, of course, “Marilyn.” It began, “No gal, I believe, beginning with Eve, Could weave a fascination like my Ma-ri-lyn.” The song concluded, “If luck is with me she’ll be my bride for evermore.” Through the media, especially magazines and movies, MM had seduced America. “In fantasy, Marilyn was now wedded to all America.” Ibid. 91.

Now, let me ask you a question about America, our USA. Is America in Bible prophecy? Many believe the beast with lamb-like horns represents the USA. I agree. But what if the United States of America is actually the descendants of ancient Israel? A number of Bible scholars believe this. Books have been written on the subject. The theory is in the dispersion of Israel the so called, “lost tribes” taken captive and began their migration northward up into Europe beginning about 721-718 BC and settled in the various countries such as Denmark, which was originally “Dan’s Mark” after the father of the tribe of Dan. “British,” also means “covenant people,” referring to Israel. Even the book of James is addressed “to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.” James 1:1. Those who believe this say that all the promises given to ancient Israel have been fulfilled to the Remnant of Israel who came and settled the USA, the land of milk and honey. If this is true then almost all Bible prophecy would have to be re-interpreted and nearly every character on America’s stage of action would be an Israelite acting out a modern drama no less important to the onlooking universe then Abraham, Moses, David and all the other characters of the Bible. And the Kennedys and Monroes of the last days are playing their lead roles as surely as Samson and Delilah and David and Bathsheba, etc. But you don’t have to believe this in order to realize how God is using people to illustrate His Word in these last days, especially in Bible prophecy such as Rev. 17 and 18. Jeremiah 23:18-20 predicted that in the last days God would perform the thoughts of His heart and we would understand and consider it perfectly. If you would like a free book on the subject write to GLC P O Box 777 Newberg, OR. 97132, and I will see that you get a free book so you can study this subject for yourself. You might be surprised how much information there is on this topic.

Because the carnal mind is so dull of understanding spiritual things from the Word of God, especially prophecy, the Lord often uses the secular world to graphically illustrate what He wants us to know and understand. That’s why I believe Marilyn Monroe is a perfect metaphor (analogy or illustration) of what Rev. 17 describes taking place in the “wilderness.” This word “wilderness” simply means “seclusion and obscurity.” G.C. 55. That is, the woman riding the beast out in the wilderness, represents what is happening behind the scenes, secretly, covertly. It is not being reported to the public at large who are ignorant of what is really going on between the Vatican and the nations of the world. Rome’s agents operate in the shadows in cloak and dagger scenarios with smoke and mirrors so as to avoid detection. That is how they are able to deceive the whole world. Rev. 12:9. And isn’t that how the JFK and RFK carried on their affair with Marilyn Monroe? Exactly. My research for this article gave me a much clearer picture of the nature of the end-time deceptions we are facing and how difficult they are to uncover, identify and expose.

But, as usual, God is quietly allowing information to filter out to the public at large who dwell in darkness due largely to the failure of God’s chosen people to understand and share the truth. Sadly and reluctantly, He bypasses most of His chosen remnant who are asleep in a Laodicean dreamland and uses other means to reach the masses of humanity to warn and enlighten them about the wrath to come. This is where the lives of the Kennedys and Marilyn Monroe become important because they are prime examples of what happens when you live selfish, self-centered lives. Yet, God in His great wisdom and compassion blesses even them and allows them to make a contribution even though they are walking contrary to His divine will. Now it is not only our opportunity but our duty to examine their lives and learn from their failures and mistakes.

Biographies continue to be written on the life of Marilyn Monroe as well as the Kennedys. They have never left center stage. Shouldn’t this tell us something? Just last year, 1998, two new volumes of 464 and 532 pages were published on MM’s life. One continued with the original cover-up theme that Marilyn committed suicide and the other gave even greater proofs that she was murdered. It is just as great a “who dunnit” as the death of John Kennedy whose life, along with his brother Bobby, intersected with Marilyn.

These three very famous people did not live or die by accident. There was a Divine plan and purpose for them and every character associated with them in their lives as well as for you and me today. Fred Guiles, in his book “Legend,” on the very first page states: “Marilyn Monroe remains the most provocative female legend of the twentieth century.” He goes on to say that what most people have heard or read about her was only the tip of the iceberg. Information has been suppressed because too many important people were still living. Truth has had to wait until this decade of the 90’s with its daring, no holds barred, in your face, blunt, bold reporting style to come in to vogue. Although Fred Guiles did not reveal the full truth of how and why Marilyn was murdered his work, published in 1984 seems to have set the stage and guided Summers and others since.

Most people believe Marilyn committed suicide. I also believed that until just recently when I began my own research. It is another public deception like the death of John F. Kennedy. In spite of all the evidence now available that she was indeed murdered, the myths and cover-ups continue to support the official version which reads as follows:

“Blonde and beautiful Marilyn Monroe, a glamorous symbol of the gay, exciting life of Hollywood, died tragically Sunday. Her body was found nude in bed, a probable suicide. She was 36. The long-troubled star clutched a telephone in one hand. An empty bottle of sleeping pills was nearby.” AP release, Aug. 5, 1962. This is from page 1 of Donald H. Wolfe’s biography, “THE LAST DAYS OF MARILYN MONROE.” Pub. 1998 by William Morrow & Co. Part 1 is entitled, “1962-1998 Decades of Deception.”

The first thing that came to my mind, when I read that, was all the lies and deception that have surrounded the character of God for over 6,000 years. When Marilyn’s body was finally placed in the L.A. morgue she was assigned CASE # 81128. Like the body of John F. Kennedy, a little over 15 months later, a great mystery has ensued. In both cases evidence was covered up, distorted or out right destroyed. “Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” 2 Tim. 3:13.

However, the evidence uncovered by Anthony Summer’s four year investigation is compelling. He interviewed 650 people for his book, “GODDESS, the Secret Lives of Marilyn Monroe,” published in 1986, which remains the definitive work on the subject. John Barkham claimed that the “documentation seems too solid to be disputed.” The Houston Post, only too glad to remove some of Texas’ guilt from Kennedy’s death, wrote that Summer’s book: “Details the transformation of a young, naive ‘Norma Jean’ into a screen presence that sizzled…we learn about Monroe’s four—not three—marriages, her life with Joe DiMaggio, who possibly beat her, and abortions…joltingly details love affairs with John F. Kennedy and Robert, who ‘probably’ visited her the day she died.”

In 1982 the District Attorney of LA announced a review of the circumstances surrounding Monroe’s demise. In his Acknowledgements, Summers recounts his commission to write a short article for London’s Sunday Express which prompted his trip from his home in England to California. “I also discovered, to my astonishment, that not a single author had attempted an in-depth examination of the actress’s personal life, coupled with serious inquiries into her death and the alleged connection with the Kennedys.” The book caused an international furor and renewed calls for a new official investigation into Marilyn’s death. Although Arthur Miller and Joe Dimaggio declined to be interviewed, Summers did an excellent job by talking to their friends and relatives. The first serious investigator was one Robert Slatzer, who claimed he was married to MM for one day in Mexico. They remained good friends until her death.

Even though hardly anyone believed him back in the 60’s his claim turned out to be true. “Slatzer began compiling his investigative information into book form as early as 1964. It was a long, tortuous odyssey from conception to completion. Death threats, beatings, break-ins, and arson lay along Slatzer’s labyrinthine path to publication. At one time in 1972 the monitored death threats became so severe that Slatzer was compelled by the Los Angeles Police Department to have a bodyguard. Who was trying to shut him up? And why? Obviously it was someone with money, power, influence and control who had a lot to lose if the truth were known. Finally, in 1974, he published, “THE LIFE AND CURIOUS DEATH OF MARILYN MONROE.” Nobody took it seriously although Publisher’s weekly termed it “bizarre and disturbing…touching and convincing.” In those days of America’s waning innocence nobody really wanted to believe it. Although it was the first major volume to document evidence of homicide which implicated Robert Kennedy, it was not the first time the allegation had been made. The American public and world at large still considered Robert a saint and martyr along with his slain brother, John.

The first author to challenge this idea and allege that Marilyn did not commit suicide was one Frank Capell whose seventy page booklet, “The Strange Death of Marilyn Monroe,” claimed the Hollywood star was murdered, and that the Kennedys were involved. In 1973, Norman Mailer, in his best selling biography, Marilyn, threw out a literary hand grenade by suggesting that the CIA and Secret Service might have assassinated the film star. “Every implication of the evidence was toward murder,” (“Marilyn, the Last Take,” Brown and Barnham, Page 374). Mailer and Robert Slatzer both publicly called for an official inquiry. He also mentioned that the Kennedy brothers had affairs with her. Later Mailer lamented that he had not been more bold in stating the facts.

Capell was a former FBI agent and fervent anti-communist. Although his claims have now been verified, in 1964 his extremism obscured many of the accurate revelations contained in his book. And so it is with truth. Frequently, the first ones to pick up the torch are often labelled fanatics and extremists, whether true or not. In 1979 Simon and Schuster published a 251 page “confidential” biography of Marilyn Monroe by Lena Pepitone, whom Marilyn hired in 1956 as her personal maid and wardrobe mistress at her New York apartment. She also became one of her closest friends and trusted confidante. As soon as Marilyn died her apartment was sealed off and no one was allowed to enter. Lena thought this was strange. Her testimony is relevant and insightful. “It seemed to me absolutely impossible that Marilyn could have committed suicide. I had just talked to her. She was happy. She was making plans. She was beautiful. She had everything to live for…she had lived with disappointments all her life, both in love and in her career. She had been unhappy, for sure, but had always snapped back…Marilyn liked challenges, and life was too big a challenge for her to back away from it. As for her death being an accident, Marilyn had been taking pills for as long as I had known her….Marilyn knew exactly what her body could take. Within those limits, she was extremely careful. To this day, her death has remained a mystery to me.” pages 248, 249. Scores of others said basically the same thing. In fact, anyone who knew her well never believed Marilyn committed suicide. Almost everyone close to her said they did not believe she had killed herself. And why was it that the coroner found her stomach empty, no reside of sleeping pills or barbitutes? And why no suicide note? Mysteriously, her diary disappeared, in which she had kept copious notes regarding her many intimate conversions with Bobby Kennedy regarding his fight against the mob and John’s plan to deal with Castro. Also missing were photos and many other important documents that would have implicated the Kennedys in her death. So, what is the real story here?

Time went along after Summers’ book hit the presses shocking the world into the reality that their dead heroes, John and Robert Kennedy, were not so heroic after all. Donald H. Wolfe states in his 532 page biography “The Last Days of Marilyn Monroe,” that “in the fall of 1992 the distinguished publishing firm of HarperCollins announced its forthcoming publication “Marilyn Monroe: The Biography,” by eminent biographer Donald Spoto.” He was supposed to have been granted access to sealed documents never before released. The claim was made that “the truth would finally be told.” Well, the real truth is that this book was a giant effort to clear the Kennedy brothers of any connection whatever with Marilyn Monroe, especially in regard to any affairs, murder or cover-up. The problem is that such an assertion is nothing but a blatant, bald-faced lie flying in the face of overwhelming evidence which include photos, telephone recordings as well as sound recordings from planted bugs by Hoffa, the FBI, and Mafia. Marilyn even bugged her own phone. In addition there are files of documented statements from hundreds of eye witnesses, friend and foe. But none are so blind as those who refuse to see the truth even when it is staring them in the face.

Spoto called previous biographers “scurrilous journalists who wrote shameful books with a disregard for the reputations of decent people and a profound indifference to the truth.” But Spoto went even beyond that accusing Marilyn’s psychiatrist, Ralph Greenson and house keeper, Eunice Murray of murdering Monroe by administering a fatal barbiturate-laced enema. He said they were angry at Marilyn for firing them. Many believed this man had been hired to exonerate the name of Robert Kennedy. His methodology was to systematically eliminate witnesses’ statements along with established facts. Wolfe states on page 100. “He pointedly ignored Murray’s statements to the BBC, 20/20, and the New York Post; Marilyn’s phone records; Jean Kennedy Smith’s note to Marilyn; the helicopter logs; Dr. Robert Litman’s notes regarding Marilyn and the Kennedys; Senator George Smather’s statements; Daryl Gates’s confirmation that Robert Kennedy was in Los Angeles on August 4, 1962; Mayor Sam Yorty’s disclosures; and Fred Otash’s statements to the Los Angeles Times. Rather than refute evidence proffered by investigative journalists, Spoto elected to assassinate the character of those bearing ill news of Camelot.” But when he attacked Anthony Summers’ well documented book “GODDESS,” he set a trap for himself, foolishly stating: ” In GODDESS Summers ignored and/or frequently misrepresented those he claims to have interviewed.”

Summers did not take such charges lightly. He promptly took Spoto to the Queen’s Bench division of the English courts. Examination of Summers’ recorded interviews revealed the integrity of his research, and in a settlement on March 28, 1994, Spoto agreed to pay Summers a sizable sum as well as print a retraction of his accusations in the paperback and any future editions of his book.” Spoto also had maligned/attacked other authors such as Norman Mailer, Fred Guiles, Peter Brown, and a host of other writers before devoting dozens of pages to the denigration of Robert Slatzer.

So, after decades of deception the truth was still on the scaffold and lies and cover-ups were still on the throne. But Wolfe points out that a break through for the truth came in the fall of 1993 when Eunice Murray’s son-in-law, handyman Norman Jefferies finally spoke up and told the truth. He was terminally ill and confined to a wheelchair. “I guess they can’t very well electrocute me in a wheelchair,” he began in relief that at last he could tell the truth about what really happened that day. “I was there in the living room with Eunice when Marilyn died, and after that all hell broke loose.” He documented and corroborated other proofs that Bobby Kennedy and Peter Lawford arrived on Saturday afternoon. What transpired after that has more than one version which we will examine later in this article. For now, let’s go back in time. Like the church of the early centuries Marilyn had a youthful innocence.

In the councils of heaven the God of all time and eternity, who, pre-ordains and pre-destines all things, “who works all things after the counsel of His own will,” (Eph. 1:11) looked down the corridors of the future to our specific time frame and decided that on June 1, 1926, one Norma Jean Baker would be born in a charity ward in Hollywood, California. He also ordained that everyone of her contemporaries be born and take their place on the same stage of action, a theater of the universe, as it were.

Marilyn was an innocent teenage girl who felt very lonely and rejected because she grew up in a melange of foster homes and an orphanage, where she was exposed to fierce religiosity, spankings with a leather strap, and sexual molestation, according to some of her biographers. Certainly this kind of upbringing did nothing to give Marilyn a positive image of God but naturally developed a fear in her heart of Him. Although this may not have been verbalized per se, I believe it was acted out in her many fits of anger and hysteria which often occurred when she felt she was being used, abused or taken advantage of as was the case with the Hollywood studios, especially 20th Century Fox.

As a child she often went to church with her various foster parents and sang songs about Jesus and read her Bible. Her mother was a Christian Scientist. Later she became a Jew while married to Arthur Miller. But the “fierce religiosity” developed in her mind the concept of a wrathful God. As a result she eventually turned away from all organized religion, prayers and reading of the Scriptures to Psychics and astrologers. As we will see these combined to unbalance and destroy what was left of her self image and mental and physical health which had become more and more fragile as her journey came to an end.

At the tender age of 16 she married handsome Jim Doughtery. They were happy until he joined the merchant marines. Once again the loneliness and feelings of rejection returned, but not for long. A photographer discovered her in an assembly line at Radio Plane. Soon her picture began to appear on many magazine covers of the time launching her career as a model and eventually a Hollywood starlet. At first she was not an easy mark or loose woman as she herself confessed. “Hollywood’s a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer often enough and my soul isn’t for sale. Men who propositioned me made me sick. I didn’t accept…” But, as soon as she found out the camera not only liked her but adored her and that men were necessary to advance her childhood dream of becoming an actress she began selling her sexual favors to the highest bidder.

Early on Marilyn began to realize she had a special “gift” for attracting men. Her sex appeal seemed to be built-in and automatic. Described as vibrant and gorgeous, possessed of earthy magic and an angel that lights the starry sky at night, MM’s “star” began to rise as she appeared on more magazine covers and made more movies. But, it wasn’t only because of her outward beauty, that was so obviously show-stopping. It can only be described as a totally, uninhibited sexual radiance she exuded which most normal men found very difficult to resist. The exceptions would be dedicated Christian men and/or those devoted to their wives and families. She enjoyed this power she possessed over men when they adored her near perfect face and body. The reason I mention this is because of the direct parallel between this particular characteristic and the woman riding the beast in the wilderness who seduces and fornicates with the nations of the earth. Many of her biographers have described Marilyn as “very bright and witty,” with the ability to hide her miseries under a mask of dazzling beauty. Sound familiar? Isn’t that how Revelation describes the whore of Rev. 17? But she didn’t start out that way. No. In the beginning, “The church and world walked far apart on the changing shores of time. The world was singing a giddy song and the church a hymn sublime.” But after three or four centuries, things began to change and we know the story of how the church became corrupted and became a persecuting power seeking to destroy the Remnant. And so it will be again in our day as the controversy heats up for the final events.

There is no doubt that Marilyn was a seductress who thoroughly enjoyed her role as it gave her a sense of control, power and fulfillment in her life she had never had as a child. I have never read any book on her life and have never watched one of her movies from beginning to end…only sketches here and there. During the 40’s and 50’s when she became a famous film starlet, the church forbade going to movies. So, most good Christians basically lived in a vacuum knowing little or nothing about Hollywood. Marilyn’s involvement with John and Robert Kennedy along with the reference to her as the first presidential model and her mysterious death motivated me to investigate. After reading the many books I checked out at the library I have discovered that almost everything we have heard about this woman is basically pulp fiction. Her life and death have many spiritual parallels for the historical church as well as today. Marilyn’s life and death is like a spiritual metaphor for those who wish to understand the implications of what that means. Remember, Daniel predicted that in the last age before the one thousand years only a few would really understand what is going on. “Many will be purged, purified (made white) and refined; but the wicked will act wickedly, and none of the wicked will understand, but those who have insight will understand.” Dan. 12:10. The following three verses then give exact time periods so the “wise” can figure out the timing of the final events. Only the wise will be able to solve this end-time riddle of God’s end time scenario.

Even in death Marilyn Monroe has assumed a durability she never possessed in her short 36 years. As a legend without end who has given rise to dark rumors, spawned bizarre theories and left behind countless tantalizing questions we will address and answer in this article. It has been estimated that 110 books have been written on the life and death of Marilyn Monroe. Yet, the public’s curiosity never seems to be satisfied. Why? Perhaps it is because an aura of mystery continues to surround not only her death but the death of two of her most famous and now well-documented lovers, John and Robert Kennedy. Who would have believed it in the 60’s? You can see her in a hundred paintings, thousands of photographs in hundreds of magazines around the world, as well as gaudy picture books still beckoning, pulsating with sexual appeal. What is it about this woman that still sells internationally so many pictures and books of her internationally 38 years after her death? So, the mystery and controversy rages on into the new millennium. In her vaulting ambition to be a star Marilyn was willing to sell her body and soul to whoever made the best offer. Small, but demanding sexual parties with selected members of the press as well as movie moguls were part of the dues she was willing to pay. She was not the first or last to get caught up in such an immoral lifestyle but she is the most famous and public example of the whore of Rev. 17 and 18.

The message of Rev. 18 is a call “to come out of Babylon.” “For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people , that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” Rev. 17:11-18 indicate that the nations of the earth will make war against the Lamb (Jesus) but the Lamb will overcome them. These same ten (meaning all) nations will “hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.” As we shall see in the examination of MM and her relationship with the Kennedy’s this is what happened to her making her an example of what is yet to come.

Marilyn is unique in two aspects. First of all, she is the most photographed, written and talked about woman in the history of mankind except for Mother Eve and Mary the mother of Jesus.

Secondly, the reality of Marilyn and the myth that has developed and evolved has to do with timing. God, in His great wisdom, guiding humanity in these last days, chooses ways and means of educating the masses which are often misunderstood and seem dark and mysterious at the time. For example, the Lord used the enemies of Ancient Israel to scatter her throughout the nations thus spreading His truth they had forsaken in the promised land. Eight hundred years later the Jew’s persecution of the early Christian church scattered the believers throughout Judea. Later Rome’s persecution scattered believers throughout the then known world and in A.D. 70 destroyed the temple at Jerusalem. When John the Revelator saw the woman who was riding the beast he admired her and was astonished at the same time. Why? Because of what she had become and her power to seduce the nations. Compare Lam. 2:15; 4:6 and Rev. 11:8 which indicate the “great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified” is none other than Jerusalem, not Rome. Why? Because in the very end the throne of the anti-Christ will be transferred from Rome to Jerusalem where Satan will enter the temple, stop the animal sacrifice system and proclaim himself as God. 2 Thess. 2:4.

Although we blame World War I and II on the international bankers, God also used these two wars to humble nations and increased mingling among various languages and cultures. He holds His guiding hand over all things, quietly, silently working out the councils of His own will. Just as Elvis Presley, the Beatles and others of the 60’s changed the morals, customs and thinking about love and sex, so Hollywood unwittingly was used to bring about a great shift in the manners and morals of America and the world from a stilted victorian mind set to a more open-minded attitude willing to discuss feelings and understand their emotions and God given gifts which had been repressed for centuries.

The downside of this shift are the extreme expressions found in homosexuality and other perversions. But even here God holds His hand over each life, permitting and preventing, guiding and directing in all things unseen to the naked eye. We are counseled to withhold judgment of these things until God Himself reveals the full spectrum of truth in the final judgment as Paul tells us in I Cor. 4:5. “Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.” How many will be praising God? EVERY MAN. Since man is used here in a generic sense it includes women and children as well. Rev. 15:4 predicts this very event when “all nations shall come and worship before you, for your judgments are made manifest.” Do you think this would include suicides such as Samson and King Saul? How all-inclusive is God’s future plan for the nations?

From the beginning of the film industry screen idols had come and gone but Marilyn was like a whirlwind, sweeping aside all lesser Hollywood legends such as Mae West and Harlow. Even Elizabeth Taylor, Jane Russell, Jane Mansfield and others like them could not compete, although they too have played their part along with later stars such as Madonna and lesser knowns. But, the dimensions of Marilyn’s fame after all these years is hard to explain unless you realize that behind the scenes is the Master artist mixing the colors and creating the images in the hues He desires in the way He already planned it all from the beginning. Marilyn was a free spirit who lived by her own rules far ahead of her time. More than any one person she has affected the sexual attitudes, thinking and modes of behavior of our generation leaving behind the feelings of centuries of guilt foisted upon humanity by the Catholic church.

Now, I want to throw out a challenge. See if you can remember or find one single photo, pose or movie of Marilyn which gives the slightest impression that this woman was evil. On the contrary, she is the epitomy of love, kindness and above all, innocence. She is not only cute, pretty, gorgeous and lovely…MM was the ultimate show stopper. She was an absolute knockout…drop dead beautiful. She became “Marilyn Monroe,” the shimmering screen star, goddess and fantasy figure to millions around the world. She seduced men right and left all her life, from the gardener and taxi driver to the President of the USA along with his younger brother, the Attorney General. Of course, she isn’t the first or last woman to have some of these qualities to one degree or another, but, MM had them all to an ultimate degree and became the most famous woman in history because of it.

For this reason this incredible sex appeal coupled with her innocence and charm make her the ultimate example of this woman riding on the beast who seduces all the nations of the world. But this is not the way theologians and their paid artists have depicted the woman riding the beast. And because of this they have missed precisely what John the Revelator was trying to tell us when he said that he wondered with great admiration. Rev. 17:6. The woman riding the beast did not look ugly, sinister, evil or dangerous. Just the opposite. Like MM she knows how to “put on a show” to delight the senses and seduce the carnal nature. That is why John was so shocked as he realized her responsibility for the death of millions of Christians and her power to deceive and seduce the whole world…even the elect, almost. Matt. 24:24. And that the beautiful early church fell like Israel of old.

One with great insight wrote in the 19th century: “Protestants have tampered with and patronized popery; they have made compromises and concessions which papists themselves are surprised to see and fail to understand. Men (both Catholics and Protestants) are closing their eyes to the real character of Romanism and the dangers to be apprehended from her supremacy. The people need to be aroused to resist the advances of this most dangerous foe to civil and religious liberty. Many Protestants suppose that the Catholic religion is unattractive and that its worship is a dull, meaningless round of ceremony. Here they mistake. While Romanism is based upon deception, it is not a coarse and clumsy imposture. The religious service of the Roman Church is a most impressive ceremonial. Its gorgeous display and solemn rites fascinate the sense of the people and silence the voice of reason and of conscience. The eye is charmed. Magnificent churches, imposing processions, golden altars, jeweled shrines, choice paintings, and exquisite sculpture appeal to the love of beauty. The ear also is captivated. The music is unsurpassed. The rich notes of the deep-toned organ, blending with the melody of many voices as it swells through the lofty domes and pillared aisles of her grand cathedrals, cannot fail to impress the mind with awe and reverence.

“This outward splendor, pomp, and ceremony, that only mocks the longings of the sin-sick soul, is an evidence of inward corruption. The religion of Christ needs not such attractions to recommend it. In the light shining from the cross, true Christianity appears so pure and lovely that no external decorations can enhance its true worth. It is the beauty of holiness, a meek and quiet spirit, which is of value with God.

“Brilliancy of style is not necessarily an index of pure, elevated thought. High conceptions of art, delicate refinement of taste, often exist in minds that are earthly and sensual. They are often employed by Satan to lead men to forget the necessities of the soul, to lose sight of the future, immortal life, to turn away from their infinite Helper, and to live for this world alone. A religion of externals is attractive to the unrenewed heart. The pomp and ceremony of the Catholic worship has a seductive, bewitching power, by which many are deceived; and they come to look upon the Roman Church as the very gate of heaven. None but those who have planted their feet firmly upon the foundation of truth, and whose hearts are renewed by the Spirit of God, are proof against her influence. Thousands who have not an experimental knowledge of Christ will be led to accept the forms of godliness without the power. Such a religion is just what the multitudes desire. The church’s claim to the right to pardon leads the Romanist to feel at liberty to sin; and the ordinance of confession, without which her pardon is not granted, tends also to give license to evil.” “Great Controversy, 566, 567.

Although I have read those words many times I had never made a comparison to the gods and goddesses of the silver screen as being modern metaphors, as it were, of this very description of last day deceptions, MM being the most famous and popular. No one could ever imagine the evil things this woman was capable of doing. But beneath the beautiful, bright and witty exterior lurked a seething, conniving, wounded and angry spirit ready to revenge herself like a Jezebel or Delilah as we shall see.

So, it is with the woman riding the beast. Like Marilyn, she has the appearance of a saint but inside her heart lurks the vindictive, vengeful spirit of the dragon when she doesn’t get what she wants. That’s why John was so utterly shocked and surprised. Marilyn is also the only famous movie star to be so intimately involved with the president of the USA, John Kennedy and later with his brother Robert. Of course, there are other documented affairs, such as the one with Judith Campbell-Exner. But the Kennedy brothers’ affair with MM is unique in that it so closely parallels Rev. 17 and 18. She is the only one that has ever been murdered in the public eye when they finished with her, just as the kings of the earth will do to the whore of Rev. 18, so all the world will see. Just as Rome destroyed Jerusalem in 538 BC and again in 70 AD. “Therefore shall her plagues come on one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire for strong is the Lord God who judges her. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning. Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more.” Rev. 17:8-11. Just before this happens a voice from heaven calls God’s people to come out of Babylon so they may escape. Cf. Luke 21:34-36.

Although Marilyn was indeed a victim of power-hungry, lustful men she also must bear the responsibility of playing her part in the ultimate death of the Kennedy brothers. It was a mutually destructive relationship which is precisely what prophecy says will happen to the woman and the beast. First, the many headed beast will burn the woman with fire and then the lamb will overcome the beast. Rev. 17:13, 14.

Recently retired in the early 50’s, baseball legend, Joe Dimaggio, met Marilyn about 1953 and married her in 1954. Thinking he had met his dream girl, he was looking forward to a quiet life. What she became was his ultimate nightmare. After their marriage in 1954 Joe found himself faced with more publicity than he had ever had before. But it was not because of his diamond dynamics at the plate but the woman he was now married to, the up and coming queen of the silver screen. The bottom line for Joe what that he wanted to take control of her life for her own protection and take her far away from the glamour and corrupt politics of Hollywood, settle down in his home town of San Francisco, and make her his cute little house wife and mother of his children. Marilyn’s response was, “You are not going to control my life Joe. He soon found out that his dream girl was becoming his ultimate nightmare. Some believe Marilyn married Joe to enhance her own career knowing he was already a celebrity in his own right and the publicity hounds would follow them everywhere. Whether she planned it that way or not, it worked like a charm and helped make her more famous than ever because it was the fairy tale romance the public devoured like cotton candy. But, their fairy tale romance starting going downhill when Joe began reacting to all the attention Marilyn was getting from other men. He couldn’t stand her constant obsession to show off her perfect body and face to the world. She seemed to have a compulsion for nudity which she confessed had been with her as a child, even in church, when she had the urge to take off her clothes and parade naked before the congregation, revealing the work of evil spirits in her life. Joe was up against something he couldn’t handle and was striking out. When the famous Yankee slugger confided some of his hurt and pain to Toots Shors, Toots said, “Well, Joe, what can you expect from a whore?” They didn’t speak for years after that. Joe didn’t know until, later that even during their courtship she was having affairs on the side and even went to Mexico and married newspaper columnist and author, Robert Slatzer, who wrote the second book dealing with her mysterious death, entitled, “The Strange Death of Marilyn Monroe,” published in 1974. The studio, who had invested in her heavily, demanded the marriage be annulled and the next day it was.

Although they divorced after only nine months their relationship continued off and on until her death on Aug. 4, 1962. He was probably the only sane and stable friend she really had who loved her for herself and not what he could get out of her. She always knew he would come to her rescue no matter what the crisis and she had plenty of them. Most of the other people in her life either worked for her or were phone friends she talked to when she was lonely, in trouble or under stress. All the movie moguls at 20th Century each had their agendas. They only wanted to use her for their own enrichment and fame. One biographer said Joe never was able to completely figure out why she was like she was, but kept on loving her anyway, hoping that she would come to her senses and leave Hollywood, settle down and marry him. Joe never realized what he was up against.

Her psychiatrist, Dr. Greenson, diagnosed Marilyn as “a borderline paranoid addict. Borderline personalities dread abandonment. They fear that being left (abandoned or left alone) means they are evil or bad. Faced with even a routine separation, they react with anger, cruel sarcasm, and despair. They cast certain people –a lover, a teacher, a doctor–into the role of savior, abruptly and viciously turning against them for not being sufficiently ‘there.’” “Marilyn Monroe,” by Barbara Leaming, page 397, 1998. This was the first book I read on MM’s life. Leaming used this analysis of MM to bolster her conclusion that MM had indeed committed suicide because borderlines are apt to threaten or attempt suicide. The only problem with this theory is that Dr. Greenson emphatically stated that Marilyn had not committed suicide as did almost everyone who knew her well or was even slightly acquainted with her. “Each of her words and all of her actions have been weighted with the gloom of her fate….her last days were a time of exhilaration, activity, tears and laughter. She had million-dollar deals to sign, including an $11-million pact with Italian film makers for four films in Italy; a film to complete; a garden to plan; and a house to finish. She had planned lunches and dinners for the near future, as well as a three-day theater trip to New York City.” Pg. 276-278, “MM The Last Take.” Pages, 276-278. Does that sound like a woman who is planning to take her life? Hardly! She and Joe were also still in almost constant contact, Joe hoping that Marilyn had finally learned her lesson and was ready to settle down with him.

Dimaggio grieved for her until the day he died a few months ago, believing she had been killed by her “friends.” He contacted her sister in Florida, who gave him the authority to make all the arrangements for the funeral, as she was not able to get there immediately. He refused to allow any of the Hollywood crowd to attend or any of the Kennedy family, Peter Lawford or Frank Sinatra and his crowd. Three years later Joe DiMaggio stood in a ceremonial lineup for baseball hero Mickey Mantle at Yankee Stadium. Robert Kennedy came along the line smiling and shaking hands. Rather than shake Kennedy’s hand, DiMaggio quickly backed away.

Like the woman riding the beast, Marilyn had a violent and raging temper when things did not go her way. Famous playwright, Arthur Miller, probably saw this more than anyone and finally escaped it after four years of anger fits, turmoil and miscarriages. Marilyn had her agenda for him and he had his agenda for her. She had been hoping to marry him for many years in order to further her career because he was a famous playwright who could not only help get her the kind of scripts and films she really wanted (serious and not comedy) but could write them himself as he did “Death of A Salesman,” for which he received the Pulitzer Prize about 1949. Miller figured that being married to Hollywood’s most famous actress would make him even more rich and famous.

Marilyn was not able to make a commitment to any marriage relationship. She claimed to have many different personalities which were mysterious to her. That was the only inkling in all the books of biographies I read that she might have been a multiple personality. At any rate, she was not a stable personality. The ink on Joe and Marilyn’s marriage certificate was barely dry when she told a visiting friend, Sidney Skolsy, when Joe was out of their Beverly Hills Hotel suite, “Sidney, do you know who I’m going to marry?” Stunned by this shocking question, he replied, “Marry? What’re you talking about? I’m going to marry Arthur Miller.” Skolsy, dumbfounded, told Marilyn he didn’t understand. “You wait,” said Marilyn. “You’ll see.” Only one year later she began courting Miller and the year after they were married.

From time to time Miller would try and reason with Marilyn, reminding her of duties and responsibilities to get to work on time and cooperate with those in charge of making the film. Marilyn wanted Arthur to side with her against those she perceived as her enemies and when he didn’t she would begin raging and screaming, becoming a woman in crisis. Yet, she wanted him to love her for who she really was. “That meant Arthur would have to accept, even love, what Marilyn described as the monster in her.” “Marilyn Monroe,” pg. 267.

It lasted four tumultuous years during which Miller only finished one script. Most of the time he was just trying to survive the best he could by staying in his room. It was after her divorce from Miller that she began to become involved with several different men, including the Kennedys. MM’s psychiatrist, Ralph Greenson, was a decent and compassionate man. “He hoped he might be able to defeat what he saw as the destructive forces life had stirred up in her.” Page 392. “Marilyn,” by Barbara Leaming. Leaming had an agenda in her book to prove that MM committed suicide. Why would she ignore all the evidences brought forth in Summer’s book, “Goddess,” published in 1986, as well all the other books published since then? Nevertheless, she gives valuable information regarding MM’s personality. What she didn’t reveal was that Dr. Greenson categorically declared that Marilyn had not committed suicide. If anyone should have known if she were suicidal it was him. The painful truth is that MM was too selfish of a person to commit suicide. All of her so-called attempts were actually ploys for attention. She lived to play the artful game of seduction. Leaming brings this out boldly in the following account of her planned encounter of RFK, Oct. 4, 1961. “The dinner would be Marilyn’s first chance to meet one of the Kennedy brothers, and she intended to make herself the center of attention. She gave her dressmaker precise instructions for the dress she wanted to wear that night. Marilyn saw herself in a slim, floor-length column of black that would set off the whiteness of her skin. But it was the top of the dress that was to be its most strategic component. For the strapless bodice, she selected an openwork fabric of black eyelet that would permit her bare nipples to stick out. Marilyn, giggling wickedly, described her plan: At the dinner table, she would make sure the President’s younger brother noticed…” Page 392. I purposely left out the last part of Leaming’s description of MM’s planned seduction of RFK. Leaming interpreted this as “self-destructive behavior” she engaged in to degrade and punish herself. Leaming pursued this line of reasoning to try and build her case that MM was sinking down to despair and suicide. Yet, she actually proves the opposite. MM, like the woman on the beast had no plan or desire to kill herself. She lived for seduction, power, control and submission of those she considered inferior. Just like the whore of Revelation 17 and 18.

Consider for a moment the evil mind behind the beast and all evil in this world…Satan, of course. There is no evidence in Scripture that Satan is suicidal. But Leaming does make some excellent points regarding the result of Marilyn’s life of seduction. Her motive, known or unknown to herself, was to make sex appear innocent and fun. That had been the basis of her immense appeal. Ibid. Page 392. Now, as we have already noted, the Creator knows all things in advance. In fact, He, as the Creator places each actor on the stage of the theater of the universe for a specific role to reveal to the universe what He Himself is really like, for we are created in His very own image and likeness.

We all know that for over a thousand years Satan was allowed to oppress the masses of humanity under his control down to the level of beasts of burden. And how did He do this? By teaching the priests that God is an angry despot who hates humanity and punishes them for every sin, no matter how slight or trivial. But his anger was especially directed at the creative power God had placed in Adam and Eve in the beginning…the power to create their own kind. With all the cunning of his master mind he slowly but surely made humans, created in the image of God, feel ashamed of this beautiful and divine gift of pro-creation. Beginning in the early centuries he led men to pass laws against sexual intercourse between priests and their wives on the day they were to offer communion. Later this prohibition was extended to the entire week. Eventually, the doctrine of celibacy was enforced and only those who agreed to live a life of celibacy were allowed to become priests and/or nuns. Thus Satan was able to create and exalt the false notion in the minds of the masses that sex was sinful, evil dirty and to engage in it made one unclean and unacceptable before God’s throne of grace, therefore outside of the mercy of God. Century by century these feelings and emotions were carefully laced not only into the theology of the church, but its art, music and literature. Beloved, doesn’t it make sense that God would create actors and actresses to take center stage in the last hour of earth’s history who would begin to expose and reverse this Satanic lie about the gift of pro-creation which reveals His mighty love and true character? Yes, it makes perfect sense. Now, I said all of that to prepare you for this most insightful quote. Listen: “In a curious way, it is precisely American society’s Puritan roots that account for Marilyn’s enduring appeal. Despite the upheaval of the 1960’s, despite the sexual revolution, feminism, and other developments, America remains at heart a puritanical culture, threatened by the power of sex and quick to point an accusing finger at anyone who may have transgressed. In the middle of all that, the vivid image of Marilyn Monroe sends out a contrary message; its power is in proportion to the depth of our own fears. As a symbol, she promises us that sex can be innocent, without danger. That, indeed, may not be the truth, but it continues to be what we wish. And that is why Marilyn remains, even now, the symbol of our secret desires.” Page 431.

My comment on this powerful statement is that sex can be and is innocent and without danger…but only in the context of and with the protective boundaries of the sacred state of matrimony. And that is precisely my point. That the satanic lie about procreation had polluted even the marriage bed which Paul declares to be lawful and “undefiled.” Heb. 13:4. And so, we find God placing his agents on the great stage of life who in the course of their roles remove the stigma of guilt. Of course, there were other actors and actresses He used in the theater but Marilyn was the most popular and well known. But she could never get enough. She was never satisfied. Of whose spirit was she imbibing? The same thing happened in the realm of music. Elvis Presley and a host of other rock and roll singers were allowed to stir up the latent God-given feelings and desires lying hidden and dormant beneath centuries of lies and guilt taught by the Catholic Church (and some of her daughters as well) about man’s mind, body, purpose and destiny. Obviously, the devil was allowed access to this same medium to do whatever he was permitted to do to lead his victims to extremes causing hurt and shame but God always held His hand over it, guiding and protecting, permitting and directing to accomplish His ultimate will. Everything that happens is not God’s (perfect) will but nothing can happen to defeat His ultimate and intentional will to bring all humanity to perfection. He also sets guidelines and perimeters beyond which it is not lawful to pass. These are found in the principles and spirit of His holy law and lived out in the example and teachings Jesus gave us in the New Testament.

The Bible clearly warns that our Creator God will not be mocked or ridiculed, because whatsoever a man sows he will reap. Gal. 6:6, 7. This is a law of life that cannot be altered. When John Kennedy became involved with Marilyn it was not love but pride and lust of conquest of women his father Joseph Kennedy had taught him. One summer in 1929, Jack, unbeknown to his father had snuck aboard the family sailboat. He received the shock of his young life when he peeked up from below deck to see his beloved Catholic father committing adultery with the beautiful and famous Hollywood actress, Miss Gloria Swanson, his girl friend for the weekend. Horrified and bewildered the twelve year old boy panicked and jumped overboard. JPK dove in after him and hauled him back to the boat. Swanson was only one of many attractive young women whom JPK brought to Kennedy’s compound on Martha’s Vineyard. Jack and his younger brothers, Bobby and Edward soon learned that promiscuity was an inherent masculine right. Their father taught them to bed as many women as possible as often as possible. Joseph Kennedy paid a heavy price for this evil advice as well as his own immoral, godless, lifestyle because it was his example that led both John and Bobby astray to have many affairs, including their liaison with the silver screen goddess, Marilyn Monroe. Later when the scandals began to besmirch the family name and affect their political `future the elder Kennedy tried to curtail his son’s adulterous lifestyle. But it was too late. The die had been cast and the penalty of death would be exacted. Looking back one might blame Joseph P. Kennedy for all that has happened. Maybe he blamed himself. One biographer said that when he heard of MM’s death he cried, “Oh, no.”

Curious about his roots and what kind of personality Joseph P. Kennedy actually was, I decided to check the library and was surprised to find “SEEDS OF DESTRUCTION, Joe Kennedy and His Sons,” By Ralph G. Martin, Pub. 1995, 680 Pages and “SINS OF THE FATHER: Joseph P. Kennedy and the Dynasty He Founded,” by Ronald Kessler, 480. Actually, it was depressing reading about this man’s life. Over and over again throughout my research on the Kennedy’s and their relationship with Marilyn Monroe I kept reading these negative statements about JPK’s mean, controlling double-side personality. He could be very charming and then suddenly become your enemy and cross you off of his list with no good reason. Joe Sr. was a clever stock market manipulator with no social conscience or compassion for the average investor. He knew how to exploit the market by selling short so as to get investors in a panic and sell off their stock at a bargain price. Then JPK would buy up these stocks, holding them until they went up again and then sell at a tremendous profit. But the average John Q. Public investor suffered every time. These two biographies quoted more than one contemporary as stating, “JPK was an evil man.” The problem is with such a moral indictment is that it tends to lessen and obscure the evil in us all…the potential for doing and being today what JPK was in his day. It also blinds us to God’s leading in this man’s life in spite of his faults.

King David was no saint…he committed adultery and murdered a man to cover his sin. Yet, God allowed David to keep his crimes hidden for some time, at least until the child was born. I Kings 11 and 12. Then He sent the prophet Nathan to rebuke him which brought him to repentance. But a chain of events had been triggered and set in motion. David’s bad example tainted his sons. Amnon raped his half sister, Tamar. Then Absalom had Amnon killed and later rebelled against his own father to take the throne. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” Gal. 6:7, 8. In spite of this, David was God’s chosen instrument…His anointed King. It was through David’s line that the Messiah was born. And it was through JPK that John and Robert Kennedy were born to fulfill their appointed destinies, as we shall see.

President Roosevelt appointed JPK as ambassador to the court of St. James in 1937, to get him out of the country. FDR considered him a political threat because he was independently wealthy with his millions, ambitious with political know how to run for president. Even if he didn’t win he was a potential loose cannon. FDR knew he had a bag full of political dirty /-tricks learned from his father up in Boston and wasn’t above using them to win at any cost if he put his mind to it as he had done in the stock market before and right up to the time of 1929 crash. He had a razor sharp mind, a good sense of timing and Irish luck to boot. The only thing he didn’t have was Roosevelt’s cool, charm and diplomacy. So, it was better to ship him to England.

JPK had the reputation of speaking his mind when he was angry. His son Bobby inherited that trait from him which showed up later in the early 60’s when he was attorney general. He was a ruthless troubleshooter of a family that could kick up plenty of trouble. But JPK proudly said, “Bobby’s my boy; when Bobby hates you, you stay hated.” Thomas Reeves, a recent Kennedy Biographer wrote of RFK: “Bobby always spoke in commands and would use any means to get what he wanted.” While helping Teddy during his senatorial campaign in Massachusetts Bobby uncovered some minor indiscretions on the part of Ted’s opponent, Gen. Ed McCormack. When he asked Bobby why he was fighting so dirty when he didn’t need to because the Kennedy name alone assured Ted’s victory, Bobby replied sarcastically: “We’re doing it because we can!” One biographer wrote: “Bobby would never forget nor forgive.” Pg. 236. “Seeds of Destruction”

But this was before the death of Marilyn Monroe which at least three biographers believe was carried out or caused directly or indirectly by RFK and the CIA and Secret Service. I believe this must have weighed on Bobby’s conscience, in spite of the fact that he no doubt tried to justify it as being necessary to protect his brother’s reputation and administration from the scandal she was threatening. And to realize it was his own affair with her that had brought it to a head. But what I believe really changed Bobby was JFK’s death. How could he not feel that it was his own lust for and then rejection of Marilyn Monroe that created and kindled within her a vindictive compulsion for revenge making it necessary, in his mind, to silence her forever. How could he not realize that this was the seed of destruction that led to his own brother’s death? He always thought it was going to be him.

JPK taught his children to compete with each other and always strive to win no matter what it took or how high the price. Bobby took this advice to heart more than any of the other boys. Up until he met Marilyn Monroe he had a perfect track record of never loosing. In “Marilyn: The Last Take,” we read: “In fact, the first family test that Bobby Kennedy ever failed was the Marilyn Monroe mission. He was sent to California in August of 1962 to end the connection (between JFK and MM) and instead became enamored of the screen goddess. His error wasn’t falling in love; his error was his failure to silence her.” pgs. 301, 302. It had been said by Kennedy supporters that Bobby would amputate his own arm if the family demanded it. The question before us is not how far was he willing to go? Indeed, it is how far did he actually go to stop Marilyn from exposing her affair with him and as well as with others.

Even after the death of JFK one of his lovers was killed. One Pamela Turnure, had been Jack’s secretary before and after he became president. Photos of them together were sent to the FBI by her landlords, but to no avail. The info was filed for future use. By January 1962, JFK had replaced Pam with Mary Meyer, a beautiful blond with chiseled features, a swift mind, and a penchant for experimental drugs. Speriglio and Gregory, co-authors of “Crypt 33,” state that Meyer enticed the young president into an affair that lasted until his assassination. Meyer made LSD and marijuana available to the President. They running joke became what would happen to the world and the ‘button’ if the President was hallucinating on LSD.” Page 213. Mary Meyer kept copious notes on their relationship as well as the affairs of state with a book in mind at some later date. After the president’s death “Mary Meyer made plans to write a book about their relationship. On October 12, 1964, Mary Meyer was shot to death, gangland style, twice in the head while walking on the towpath in Georgetown…her book might have brought the Kennedy administration low. And Bobby Kennedy’s campaign for the presidency, as the primaries were nearing, would have been sorely devastated by her allegations! After her death, the CIA supposedly found and destroyed her diary.” Ibid. page 213. This has been secret for decades. How many others have been quietly eliminated we have no idea. Who called for this hit? JPK? RFK? Or some concerned “loose cannon” in the CIA or Secret service? The Bible clearly says, “As thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.” Obadiah 15. Although JPK did not die violently like his two sons, he suffered greatly with a stroke during which he was incapacitated, barely able to speak, but able to read and watch TV and understand when his sons were killed.

As I have already tried to point out, God holds His hand over the affairs of men and nations. He leads and guides, permits and prevents in every scenario in life, constantly molding and developing the characters he has placed on the stage in every scene in the great controversy between good and evil. This becomes very evident in the lives of both John and Robert as Marilyn’s life comes to a dramatic close. Evidently sensing herself that her life was coming to an end, she had inscribed in a coat of arms on a foot pad at the entrance to her new home the latin phrase: “curium perficio,” meaning, “I am finishing my journey,” or “my journey is over.” As time went along, Marilyn became more desperate for a family life, a baby and stability. Something she never had as a child with her mother who put her in an orphanage. Yet, these dreams continued to elude her. Then, when she was rejected by both JFK and RFK, she began slipping into a woozy, boozy, drug-laced world, abusing alcohol and drug medications for sleep and nerves.

She felt very depressed and humiliated and seemed to be sprinting toward self-destruction. She was becoming more profane and verbally abusive in her tirades against the Kennedys. In spite of these facts and the stories about past attempts to take her life, MM had a lot to live for. Yet, her lifestyle has been one of the strongest arguments in favor of suicide, unless you look carefully at the facts, the evidence and the obvious cover-up that followed. “Most of her so-called suicide attempts were actually mild to moderate overdoses. Because her speech became slurred and she seemed confused, friends often overreacted and summoned doctors. In reality, said Slatzer, ‘Marilyn knew precisely how many pills it took to get her to sleep.’” Pg. 276, MM, Last Take. Most of those who cling to the theory that MM killed herself have an agenda, such as Peter Lawford, protector of the Camelot image. Pg. 286, “MM, The Last Take.” In the end Lawford’s continual effort to cover-up the truth took its toll on him both physically and emotionally. He had been the go-between for both the Kennedy brothers in their secret liaisons with MM. Most of the authors believed Lawford felt responsible and carried that guilt until the end because he knew Mm did not kill herself.

In the BBC special, “Say Goodbye to the President—Marilyn Monroe and the Kennedys” , interviewers discovered that the Kennedy family had heard that Dorothy Kilgallen (famous Hollywood Columnist and gossip) was getting closer and closer to completing a bombshell story about the whole affair. Marilyn wanted a final showdown with Bobby. She wanted him to admit he had lied to her about divorcing his wife and marrying her and that both he and the President had just been using her for their own little fun and games and now were tossing her aside like a piece of used meat. Biographer, Robert Slatzer, early lover, one day husband and long time friend of Marilyn confirms this. In a 1993 MM documentary Slatzer says that Marilyn told him, about two days before she was murdered: “If I don’t hear from Bobby Kennedy before the end of the weekend, I’m going to call a press conference, and blow the lid off this whole _____ thing!” Slatzer, non-plused and troubled by these threats asked Marilyn, “What thing?” Marilyn then said: “I’m going to tell about my relationship with both Kennedy brothers. Everybody has been calling, trying to get the story anyway—-Walter Winchell, Kilgallen. And it’s clear to me now that the Kennedys got what they wanted out of me and then moved on.” Ibid. 299. Slatzer isn’t the only one she made these threats to. She also told her friend Jeanne Carmen and Elizabeth Courtney that she was planning to stage a press conference the following Monday, Aug. 6, 1962.

Although MM definitely felt like a spurned woman who had been deliberately used, she evidently didn’t feel that she had ever used anyone herself in her passionate desire to be the most famous and highest paid movie star in the world. Using the metaphor once again of the woman riding the beast we can see how this worked out during the dark ages when the church and the state used each other for political and monetary gains. The compromises, alliances and mysterious intrigue in those long forgotten historical events seem hazy and difficult for us to comprehend. But, now when examining what went on in our time with this century’s most popular president and screen idol, those events during the dark ages take on new meaning.

Marilyn’s repeated attempts to have a baby ended in terrible disappointment. So, when she discovered that she was pregnant with Bobby’s baby she was ecstatic. “Once she found out that she was indeed pregnant, she was more exhilarated than anything else. After her ectopic pregnancy, the loss of a fallopian tube, and the last miscarriage, Marilyn had virtually given up all hope of ever becoming a mother. Now, with love thriving, marriage and motherhood seemed to be on the horizon. Bobby was proclaiming his love, so there was no other choice but for him to divorce his wife, Ethel.” Page 215. Crypt 33. Bobby was always the “fixer” and the “enforcer” in the family, the “saint” , as it were, never in trouble himself but always helping others out of their troubles. Now, RFK was in the biggest fix in his life. Ironically, his image in the public eye had never been higher. In June, 1962, Bobby was named “‘Father of the Year,’ focusing an intense glare of publicity on what was described as ‘his Norman Rockwell family life.’” Page 304. MM, The Last Take. So, his whole life was at stake. He had everything to lose. What could he do? If Marilyn kept her word and held that press conference on Monday Camelot was finished for good.

“Bobby Kennedy was ashamed to tell his brother about MM’s pregnancy. Always the more ‘moral’ of the two, Jack criticized him for his stupidity. But he saw no alternative. Marilyn had to abort. There would be no divorces in the Kennedy administration. Joseph Kennedy was the last to know, and he was even more adamant…Jack persuaded his younger brother to promise Marilyn anything to convince her to terminate the pregnancy.” Page 218, Crypt 33. But the problem would not go away. “Marilyn balked at his maneuvers. She was holding the trump card and she knew it…” Bobby tried to assure her that he did want to marry her eventually, but she had to see things in perspective. Having the child might be right for her, but it would be more difficult for him to get the divorce. “Marilyn asserted herself with her married lover, demanding that he immediately leave his wife, or else. He had no choice. The gods had already made the decision.” Crypt 33, page 218. But, as history shows, RFK was a man who often defied the “gods” (demons who are allowed to control this world under God’s sovereignty) by going after the same Mafia who helped his father make his millions during Prohibition by selling bootleg liquor and the same Mafia that helped JFK win the election illegally. “Perfect Villains, Imperfect Heroes,” pg. 260. Ronald Goldfarb, 1993. “The Kennedys had erred by taking money and assistance in their political campaigns from what turned out to be a deadly PAC.” Ibid. page 260. And this same Mafia would be called upon by his father and JFK to assassinate MM.

With the benefit of hindsight we can see how God permits and prevents, directs and determines in the affairs of men and nations. Nothing happens without His knowledge and consent. “Sam Giancana theorized, his family historians reported, that Joseph Kennedy had conceived a diabolical scheme, positioning his vehement son as attorney general ‘to systematically erase all markers’; and there was to be a mobster list for prosecutors to pursue, Mooney knew ‘he’d be on top of the list.’ ‘It’s a brilliant move on Joe’s part,’ said Giancana ruefully. ‘He’ll have Bobby wipe us out to cover their own dirty tracks and it’ll all be done in the name of the Kennedy ‘war on organized crime.’ Brilliant!” page 261. What markers? JPK was saved twice from Mob wrath, once from the Purple Gang in Detroit and later in 1956 from a Vendetta by Frank Costello in New York. “JPK came to Giancana…pleading for his intervention to cancel the contract Costello had put out on JPK…and promising, ‘He’ll be your man…my son…will owe you…he won’t refuse you, ever.’ Giancana thought he had a very valuable deal…” Page 261, “Perfect Villains, Imperfect Heroes.”

According to the same book “Crypt 33,” now out of print) RFK used the ultimate power of separation to coerce MM into an abortion. According to one source she had already had eleven abortions and had promised herself to never do it again. Yet she felt she had no alternative but to acquiesce to his terms. Even her psychiatrist, Dr. Greenson, tried to “persuade the actress to acquiesce, fearing the possible repercussions from ‘men in power.’…she finally accepted the probability that if she took the relationship public, it might destroy her career as well.” Pg. 219. Dr. Greenson was relieved and urged her to advise Bobby immediately of her decision to abort. She was paying this doctor $1,400 a month for a minimum of fifty-two hours of analysis per month, half of his regular fee. Page 278, MM, The Last Take.

There were two stories as to how she resolved the pregnancy. The first says she checked into Cedars of Lebanon Hospital under an assumed name and had the abortion there and the second story is that she took a qualified American Doctor with her to Mexico to perform the abortion. “MM, The Last Take.” Pgs. 282, 283. But in spite of her caving into his wishes and getting the abortion, RFK suddenly cut off all communication with her. This was the final straw for MM. Finally, she was totally fed up with being used and abused and lied to and double-crossed by the Kennedys. This is when she began talking of exposing them. In their book, “Crypt 33,” chapter 20, “The Fatal Decision,” pages 222, 223, they explain how JFK contacted Giancana, “who was still working closely with the CIA in undercover attempts to assassinate Castro.” Giancana was happy to hear from JFK who requested one last favor…a hit on MM to silence her once and for all. Sam wanted “cooperation” from the Kennedys. “But Jack told him not to count on Bobby—and Jack was his strongest ally. The President was still courting the mob for added protection as J. Edgar Hoover was waiting for the young President to stumble and fall.” 223. Crypt 33. ” Giancana found another way to nail the President. In planning and executing the hit on MM, he would also have a tape recording of the previous conversation with JFK and RFK, about their triangle and the baby. Then the hit would be forever on tape and the perfect blackmail material would be in the hands of the mobster. The ultimate coup!” 223.

The turning point in JFK’s relationship with Marilyn seems to be the occasion when she sang “happy birthday” to the President at Madison Square garden. Evidently, this was the event that triggered a sufficient amount of negative reaction to alert some of his family and advisors that it was time to cool it with Marilyn. It wasn’t so much the song or her voice that shocked everyone. TIME writer, Hugh Sidey captured the moment in print as he recalled her entrance: “When she came down in that flesh-colored dress, without any underwear on…you could just smell the lust. I mean, Kennedy went limp, or something. We all were just stunned, to see this woman.” Another called it “Mass seduction.” To the American male, Marilyn Monroe was the “blond, beautiful, sweet angel of sex.” Before America and the world was revealed that night the special relationship this goddess had with America’s crown prince. Jackie knew what was going on and refused to attend. Nevertheless, it was at this moment the Kennedy magic had reached its zenith in JFK. Camelot was born and seemed to invite all of America to join in the celebration. The Kennedys were becoming a legend in their own time. They seemed truly magical, as Norman Mailer said, “because they were a little better than they should have been, and so gave promise of making America a little better than it ought to be.”

The only problem was that just as JPK’s vast empire had been built on fraud, deceit and working with the mafia, buying and selling liquor during prohibition to build his fortune and empire, even so, JFK’s victory over Richard Nixon was gained with the help of the mafia stuffing ballot boxes in Chicago and other places around the nation. The whole election process was rigged, bought and paid for by the father’s ill-gotten millions. More than one of JPK’s contemporaries described him as a ruthless and “evil man.” Bobby was the only one who also earned that description later on in his career. How sad when he had so much to offer, not only in terms of his wealth but his God given gifts and the talents of his sons, many of which were abused for selfish purposes. His secretary and mistress for nine years, Janet Des Rosiers, told of the many heart rending letters JPK received appealing for help. Joe’s answer was always, “No.” “If you asked him for something, you never got a thing,” she explained. But, he dispensed millions through the Kennedy Foundation. By 1960 his fortune was approximated at $400 million by Fortune magazine.

How could God bless such goings on, especially when JFK and Bobby, along with their father, continued their adulterating ways? What will be their fate in the great judgment day? In their pride and arrogant feelings of superiority they continued blindly down the broad road of destruction. Although JPK had been raised a Catholic, he had no time for religion. He left that up to his openly pious wife who faithfully went to mass. Joe’s relationship to the Catholic church was strictly a business transaction. For example he would give $1 million to the church for a tax write off, then they would return $500,000 with a receipt for the $1 million to deduct from his taxes. “Sins of the Fathers,” page 334.

So, the church was not about to rebuke him for his adultery. As for Rose, all biographers portray her as a mother who showed little or not affection for her children. JFK said his mother “was a nothing” who never hugged him and was gone a great deal of the time. When he was in the hospital recovering for a month, she did not visit him even one time. One biographer stated that JFK was trying to get from all these girls what he never received from his mother. It was their father who was very touching and demonstrative with his love and affection but used it to mold and manipulate them according to his own iron will. He brainwashed them all to be victorious at any cost…that was all that mattered…to always come in first. Win, win, win. That’s all that mattered. John and Robert depended heavily upon their father for advice during their political campaigns and after John became president. It was JPK who told John to put Bobby in as Attorney General. Bobby didn’t want to take it but John finally talked him into it. They adored and almost worshipped their father and always wanted to please him. Even after JPK had a stroke JFK depended upon his father for advice. He said that even with only ten percent of his brain functioning he had more sense then anyone else he knew. That’s how much respect and adoration JFK had for his father.

In the fly leaf of his book “Seeds of Destruction,” Ralph G. Martin, states that “he probes the complex family dynamics and psychological forces that molded the Kennedy men. In chilling detail Martin presents a portrait of a ruthless autocrat trying to impose a warped and destructive value system on four impressionable boys. Joe Sr., son of a saloon-keeper, had always felt himself excluded from Catholic society, and he strived to obtain money and influence at any cost. He consorted with the Mafia, sold bootleg liquor, brought home countless mistresses in front of his wife and children and taught his sons that money could buy everything, including votes.”

But in addition to all that, he especially taught his boys that women were for sexual pleasure and a day without it was a day wasted. As their hormones kicked into full gear in their late teens and early 20’s they competed with each other over women. Jack and his father even shamelessly gave each other phone numbers of women they had found especially charming. Evidently, they never read or didn’t believe in the Ten Commandments which clearly state, “Thou Shalt not commit adultery.” As sharp as he was in the world of finance and politics JPK was a total failure when it came to instilling spiritual values, truth, righteousness and a character like Christ in his sons. This was unknown to him. With his sons he worshipped daily before the altar of the god of mammon and hedonism. These became their idols which would exact a heavy price for the sins that lasted only for a season. In all of their desire to become public servants in the name of bettering the human condition they forgot the foundation principles of the law of God and, like Beltshazzer of old, laughed in the face of the God of heaven as they drank from the sacred vessels stolen from the temple. The handwriting was on the wall but they were too drunk to notice or understand. Besides, there was no Daniel on their payroll to interpret its meaning. Punishment would come swift and certain on their adulterous heads. They had broken the law and now they must pay. “You shall not bow down to them (false and graven images and idols) for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me. But showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.”

Even when JPK was honored with an appointment to England as ambassador, he continued his affairs every chance he had and took a strong anti-semitic stance predicting Hitler would probably win the war. Roosevelt, ever the diplomat and charmer put up with him until the 1940 election was over then accepted his resignation. FDR invited JPK for an interview “to see what he has to say,” he explained to Eleanor. After only ten minutes FDR asked JPK to step out of his study while he spoke with Eleanor, who had rarely seen him so angry. “I never want to see that (deleted) as long as I live,” he told her. “Take his resignation and get him out of here.” Joe’s parting shot in the “Boston Globe” was a final embarrassment in a blundering career. Like most of JPK’s relationships, this one had ended in disaster and bitterness.” Yet, later, FDR, seeking congressional support for his aid to England re-called JPK to his home and let him air his feelings. After ninety minutes of massage to his ego Joe agreed to see what he could do to support the president and tone down his criticisms. pg. 232-234 “Sins of the Father.”

When Jack became an adult he tried to take charge of his own life but his father’s influence upon him was enormous. It was his decision to continue or change. Although he had met Marilyn in 1954, JFK’s affair with her did not begin until July 1959. Even though she was married to Joe Dimaggio at the time she gave JFK her private phone number. She told Robert Slatzer that Jack Kennedy “couldn’t take his eyes off me.” Like the woman riding the beast, MM was always seducing people. That was just her nature from the time she learned that she had power over men.

A loose cannon and unstable time bomb, she had compulsions she found difficult to control, such as the desire to appear nude in front of people. Although she never acted on it, as a child, she felt an urge to undress in church and parade herself in front of the congregation. Powerful spirits were at work in her life to destroy her. Nevertheless, God was working out the plan He had for her life though she knew it not. Was she ready to meet her Maker?

The same was true of John and Robert Kennedy. Prideful, arrogant and willfully ignorant of the consequences of their actions, Jack, and later Bobby, became involved with MM. Their father had taught them that they could do anything and if they got caught they could buy their way out of any trouble. The brothers were very competitive, not only in touch football, but in every aspect of their lives. One upmanship was a family tradition their father encouraged. Jack prided himself that he could take any woman away from any other man. So, when Bobby flew to Hollywood to inform Marilyn that her affair with Jack was over, she began working her charms on him. But, it was a mutual seduction that gave them both a rush…the highest law enforcement officer in the land with the world’s beauty queen. It was also an opportunity for Bobby to prove he was a better man than Jack with women. Marilyn probably told him so. One night when they were dancing Bobby asked her who she thought was the best looking man on the dance floor. Of course, she told him he was. Later, MM confided to a friend that while she told bobby what he wanted to hear, she also thought that it was probably true. Like Lucifer, they had deceived themselves about themselves and their decline and fall were inevitable for neither of them had any real character, only a fading outward appearance. Marilyn’s seduction of Bobby included making him her best friend, listener and advisor, something Marilyn desperately needed at this time in her life in her final battle with Fox over the movie, “Something’s Got To Give,” which was finally scrapped. Fox put out a lot of false info about Marilyn, hoping to discredit her with the public, so as to have the upper hand with a new contract.

When the rumor mill began to affect Ted Kennedy’s political future, matriarch Rose entered the picture. “‘Bobby’s sister told MM that Rose Kennedy had ordered all her son’s sexual adventures to cease—immediately.’ By then, Rose had been brought into Teddy’s sagging senatorial race to shore him up with the power of her spotless image.” “MM The Last Take,” Pg. 281. It was just smart politics.

In their home state, editorial cartoonists were having a heyday. One cartoon showed all three brothers dancing hand in hand on the Whitehouse lawn. The caption read, “Triplets! Now, ain’t they cute!” Teddy’s opponent for the senate race was Gen. Ed McCormack. In one of their debates, McCormack said, “Mr. Kennedy, you have never worked for a living, you have never held elected office, and you aren’t running on your qualifications, because you have none.” Ibid. JFK was born in 1917, RFK in 1925 and Teddy 1932. As the experienced and seasoned older brother Bobby took it upon himself to teach Ted the political ropes of campaigning. He taught him how to debate, answer questions, deflect criticisms, attack and silence one’s opponent. In all the books I could find on the life and death of Marilyn Monroe they all agreed that Bobby was the one Marilyn finally fell the hardest for. He was a good listener and tried to help people. Unlike his father or Jack or later Ted, he was not a woman chaser. He had taken more seriously his mother’s strict religious teachings as he grew up and absorbed them as his own.

Through the years, Kennedy lawyers, paid handsomely to perpetuate the myth of “Camelot,” have scoffed at the idea that John or Bobby even had an affair with Marilyn let alone anything to do with her death. They said anyone who believed Monroe’s phone records had been seized by police and government agencies was crazy. Then a photocopy of those very phone records turned up in a homicide investigator’s garage confirming calls to and from MM first by JFK and then by RFK. Later Judith Campbell Exner told Congress of her affair with JFK, adding that it ran concurrently with Marilyn Monroe’s. “Marilyn, the last take.” Pgs. 351, 352. Brown & Barnham, pub. 1993. Yet, to this day, articles and books are still being churned out denying the truth. After the recent death of JFK Jr., much as been written about the “Kennedy Curse,” referring to the many family deaths and tragedies. The real “curse” is the lies and cover-ups that continue from one generation to another with no confession, apology or admission of guilt on the part of anyone, beginning with the Patriarch, JPK himself.

Surely they knew MM was involved with Chicago crime boss, Sam Giancana, as well as, Judith Exner. They were asking for trouble and certainly got it, and a lot more than they bargained for. They didn’t realize MM was a loose cannon that could not be controlled, a borderline personality that most psychologists avoid if possible. Ultimately, the only option Bobby felt that he had left was to eliminate Marilyn. But, that would be murder. They already were breaking the 7th command as well as the 9th one regarding bearing false witness. Politicians learn to be good liars and take God’s name in vain, etc. But murder? Whether John and Bobby realized it, the night they agreed to the murder of Marilyn Monroe they signed their own death warrant, for the Word of God tells us: “As thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: Thy reward shall return upon thine own head.” Hab. 1:15. “For whatsoever a man soweth, shall he also reap.” I Cor. 15. Yet, the sentence was delayed for the Lord had a work for both John and Bobby the same as He had for King David after he killed Uriah. It doesn’t matter what man does, God always gets the glory. After Jack’s death Bobby stated, “Somebody up there doesn’t like us.” “Sins of the Father’s” page 478. At this time he didn’t seem to see any causal relationship between what his father had done in the past or what they had done to Marilyn Monroe. But, I believe God allowed him to live until 1968 so he would have time to spiritually mature enough to see some of these things. The work he tried to do and the speeches he made indicate he was growing and developing. When he got out and met the people where they lived in the big cities and places like poverty stricken West Virginia, RFK began to have a deeper feeling for humanity and a desire to better their condition.

John Kennedy’s public execution by the powers that be, the New World Order, was the beginning of their own public exposure. John Kennedy became a martyr. His death was a wake up call to the American people and the world at large that sinister forces were pulling the strings behind the scenes and anyone who didn’t follow orders would be eliminated. Of course, that was not known at the time of his death in 1963, but slowly the real facts about his assassination have been brought out. Yet, his reputation remained intact until this decade despite his promiscuous lifestyle. He was certainly my hero for many years. With others of my time I wept openly when he was killed. Little did I know what was transpiring secretly behind closed doors. Yet, it is possible that Marilyn’s death had a profound effect upon JFK to the extent that he repented at some point and changed his life. I don’t know. I heard a man say on a cassette tape many years ago that a month before he was killed President Kennedy accepted Christ as his saviour while in the state of Florida. I hope it is true and that he was ready to meet his maker for the die (dice) had been cast. “As thou hast done, so shall it be done unto thee.” Obadiah 1:15. Many Kennedy biographers believe JFK was killed because he wanted to get rid of the CIA and change Federal Reserve money into USA money, as Lincoln did, thus taking the power away from the International Bankers. He also resisted the plans to escalate the Viet Nam War and had plans to withdraw. We will probably never know for sure. What we do know is that God held His hand over JFK until, like MM, it was time for his journey to end.

John Kennedy’s shocking death accomplished more than one thing. In a sense, he was a lamb to the slaughter, a martyr, as it were, but not totally innocent as we have already noted. Nevertheless, God permitted his death, which was a public execution by those who mistakenly believe they are in charge of this world, for the purpose of revealing and bringing to the public’s attention this secret or shadow government and their true nature, character and plans for their New World Order. In that sense both John and Robert Kennedy fulfilled their mission without even realizing it. So it is with most of the human race, although it doesn’t have to be. God reveals His will and plans to those who dedicate themselves fully to Him. Amos 3:7.

I believe that after JFK and Bobby silenced MM their consciences started to bother them a lot and they began to meditate a great deal on what their real purpose and mission in life really was. Civil rights surely was part of it and they were used to start what LBJ finished after JFK’s death in ’63. Most historians believe JFK could never have accomplished what LBJ did in getting the civil rights legislation passed. JFK had a premonition that he would not live a long life and often quoted Alan Seeger’s poem, “I Have A Rendezvous with Death,” part of which I will share with you. “I have a rendezvous with Death At some disputed barricade When Spring comes round with rustling shade And Apple blossoms fill the air…God knows ’twere better to be deep Pillowed in silk and scented down, Where love throbs out in blissful sleep, Pulse night to pulse, and breath to breath, Where hushed awakening are dear…But I’ve a rendezvous with Death, At midnight in some flaming town. When Spring trips north again this year, And I to my pledged word am true, I shall not fail that rendezvous.”

John F. Kennedy and his brothers were raised by a father who believed his sons were destined for greatness. He decided that if he couldn’t be president his elder son, Joe Jr., would be. Joe was very submissive to his father’s wishes and accepted this as his destiny and mission. John was sickly, not even sure if he would live. Slowly he got well enough to finish his education. Then the war came and they both enlisted in the Navy. They were always competing for their father’s attention and praise. When John saved several of his men after his PT-109 was torpedoed and he became a hero his older brother, Joe, went to his room and wept because of all the attention John was getting. In desperation to prove himself as great a hero as his younger brother Joe volunteered for what were considered suicide missions. Miraculously he survived the ten mission flights he had volunteered for then turned around and volunteered again. He was advised not to fly this particular plane because of a defect in the electrical system which could cause the plane to explode before they could bail out. But Joe was head strong and determined to prove himself just as great a hero as JFK. Joe, who had been cautioned about his recklessness on previous flights, ignored this advice and went anyway. As predicted the plane exploded and Joe was killed. Joe Sr. wept more than anyone. Jack was more intellectual than Joe and graduated cum laude from Harvard in 1940. After his graduation, Jack audited classes in business and political science, lived in a comfortable cottage on campus, and bought a green convertible. Susan Imhoff was one of Jack’s dates. She recalled that Jack didn’t enjoy cuddling, was bossy and arrogant but loved to laugh a lot and talked endlessly about his father. Harriet Price remembered Jack said he wasn’t ready for marriage. She said that he talked a lot “about his father’s infidelities, which he seemed to consider the true measure of a man, an example to be learned.” “Seeds of Destruction,” By Ralph G. Martin, pgs. 89, 90. Jack was drafted soon after and the rest is history. He ran for congress in 1946 and later became a senator from Massachusetts in the 50’s and was elected president in 1960.

Unfortunately, his adulterous ways never changed and this is what led him into his dangerous liaison with Marilyn Monroe. Bobby, the more religious one of the family due to his mother’s influence, tried to rescue him but ended up being seduced by Marilyn as well. There were three books which went into considerable detail regarding what really happened to Marilyn on the night she died. The first one I read was “Marilyn, the Last Take,” by Brown and Barnham. This book alone clearly shows that Marilyn did not swallow any pills at all. Swallowing pills was not the cause of death. The autopsy proved that her stomach was empty which confirmed what others had stated regarding her not eating anything all day long, Sat. Aug. 4, 1962. Yet, Monroe’s blood contained 4.5 percent barbiturates—namely, Nembutal. A fatal dose of Nembutal and an equally fatal dose of chloral hydrate was found in her system by Toxicologist Raymond Abernathy…enough drugs to kill three people, said Thomas Noguchi. This was a low estimate in comparison with others which said she had enough in her system to kill 7-15 people. Noguchi also prepared several tissue and organ samples of the liver, kidneys and stomach for further toxicological study. Five days later he complained to the LA Herald Examiner about the delay. Still no answer. Finally, he called Raymond Abernathy and found out that he had closed the case and disposed of the samples. Whether he made this decision on his own or was ordered to do so is not known. A spokeswoman for Abbot Laboratories, the manufacturer of Nembutal, estimated that MM would have had to swallow 75 to 90 capsules in order to have the high percentage of drugs in MM’s system. “That’s just not possible,” she said. The best argument to disprove suicide or accidental overdose came from the Suicide Prevention Team. “Marilyn would have had to gulp down those pills, all of them, within a matter of minutes…a very few minutes,” said Robert Litman, the UCLA psychiatrist who headed the suicide team. “If she had taken those pills a few at a time, she would have been unconscious before she could ingest the amount needed to achieve that degree of barbiturates in her bloodstream.” But her stomach was completely empty, no residue of food or pills.

The next possibility was murder by injection which would look like an overdose. But, this was ruled out when Noguchi said he found no needle marks on her body. He must not have looked very carefully because Dr. Engleberg gave her an injection on Friday and she also had one the day before, both of which should have been found. Her kidneys were also found to be clear of drugs which indicated that the stomach was bypassed meaning she died either by an injection or a suppository or enema. Sergeant Jack Clemmons was the first policeman on the scene and was suspicious from the start. He said her bedroom looked too neat and clean. And Marilyn was messy, not neat and clean. The way she was lying on the bed did not look normal but staged, like the whole bedroom had been swept clean. He suspected her body had been moved, which it turned out later was true.

The original 723 pages of the original report entitled, “Investigations into the Death of Marilyn Monroe,” has now been reduced to about 30 pages. In that report homicide detectives say that RFK came to MM’s house with an unidentified physician who administered a shot to “calm her down.” The pages containing that report disappeared many years ago. This was part of the huge cover-up that took place at the time of her death and continues to this day. There are still enough people who are willing to believe that she committed suicide that books are still being published and sold to perpetuate this lie. Somebody, somewhere must have an agenda.

Even her psychiatrist, Ralph Greenson, “dismissed the suicide theory immediately. He angrily told the investigation team, ‘Suicide is not an option in this case.’” John Miner was deputy DA and had more than six hours of interviews with Dr. Greenson, after which he concluded “MM did not commit suicide.” This report disappeared along with all the other incriminating evidence, destroyed, evidently, by detectives in the LAPD’s intelligence squad. Robert Slatzer, whose collection now numbers more than a million documents, uncovered a statement from a source who provided him with portions of a secret statement RFK himself gave Parker. He admitted that he went to Marilyn’s house when she became too distraught to handle and to bringing a doctor, who in turn gave her a mild sedative.” This admission also appeared in a book by Ralph G. Martin, “A Hero for Our Time.” Ezra Goodman, Hollywood bureau chief for TIME magazine, had been preparing a cover story on MM when she died. Plunging into the confusion surrounding her death, he came up with a remarkable story linking the actress with the Kennedy administration. But top editors at TIME killed the piece and destroyed all copies of the article believing it could destroy the President. Hollywood gossip columnist, Walter Winchell and Earl Wilson plus many others such as Esquire, Life and Modern Screen had enough documented source material linking the Kennedy’s to MM’s death but nothing was ever printed. So, a divine hand was protecting the Kennedy administration. But, other forces had been triggered which would be released on Nov. 22, 1963.

In 1992 Penguin books published “Marilyn, the Last Take,” by authors Brown & Barnham. As they researched for the book, they expected to uncover an accidental death. Instead, they said they found murder. In Chapter 39, CONCLUSION , pgs. 352-355, they summed up their findings. RFK, realizing MM had a very vindictive spirit and was about to publicly reveal her ties with him and JFK decided to try and talk her out of it although he had been shunning her calls. With trusted members of the Secret Service, RFK dashed to the Lawford mansion for a strategy session. He made a quick call to MM and found her hysterical, screaming at him, telling him to get out of her life. The Secret Service agents moved into action, probably bringing CIA operatives into the situation. Because of MM’s loose words on the plot to kill Fidel Castro, the CIA had a strong stake in her demise. Those who have studied the New World Order and its development from Adam Weishaupt, and the birth of the Illuminati (1776 to the present) realize that dark forces, RFK himself may not have realized, were interested in protecting their long-sought-for Catholic president. MM’s revelations could destroy their well laid plans. On page 349 of this same book, the authors reveal that eyewitnesses placed RFK at MM’s home at least twice on the night she died. Eunice Murray, her house keeper, confirmed this in 1985, after years of lying to cover up the truth. “Goddess,” 438, 439.

There was also a violent argument which was recorded. By this time RFK was deeply alarmed and shocked at the depths of MM’s rage. Evidently she told him that she was going to hold a press conference on Monday and expose them for what they really were. “A top executive at Twentieth Century-Fox, who insisted on anonymity, asked a later U.S. Attorney General, under a Republican administration, if such a murder could possibly have been engineered by government agents. ‘You’re naive,’ this Attorney General said. ‘All the President or Attorney General has to do is insinuate his displeasure with somebody, and then somebody else picks it up and does it. The political world is built around that sort of thing. that’s the kind of power that really, truly exists.’ The Fox executive looked up at his host with a shocked expression. The man smiled. ‘Well, you’re the one who asked.’ ‘I haven’t felt completely safe since that time,’ said the executive.” Ibid. Page 350 . This is an important clue as to how various government agents have died mysteriously from James Forrestal to Vince Foster and perhaps others we don’t even know about in the Clinton administration.

Their final conclusion is that: “Some time between 6:30 and 9:P.M., someone entered Monroe’s house and administered a potent shot of Nembutal in her rectum or under her armpit. An injection in either of these places would not be detected during an autopsy that missed evidence of the shots she had received in the preceding two days.” Ibid, Page 353.

When asked if he thought that MM’s life was in danger because of all the high-level information she had from both JFK and RFK, to say nothing about Mafia boss Giancana and perhaps others, Former police chief Reddin replied, “Absolutely. She absolutely could have been in terrible danger.” He also said that she was in even worse danger because of the stenographer’s notebooks she had kept on her conversations with both JFK and RFK. Even Robert Slatzer told her that all the information she was privy too could get her killed.

For those who believe RFK was not at Marilyn’s house the night she died, let me assure you, there are many documented sources proving Robert Kennedy was at Marilyn’s house the night she was murdered. RFK was getting desperate. He took a family doctor to MM’s place about 6:30 P.M. He gave her a strong sedative. But upon his return to Peter Lawford’s mansion at 7 P.M. MM was already on the phone, raging about her mistreatment by the Kennedys. She was laughing, crying, semi-hysterical, much as she had been the previous year in her rages against Arthur Miller. Ibid., Page 352. This is an aspect of MM that few ever saw…the angry, bitter, hateful and vindictive spirit that burst forth from time to time. Bobby Kennedy was stunned. His problems with Marilyn were not being solved as he had planned. They were getting worse by the minute and time was running out. Bobby, the fixer, was failing and his failure could bring down the whole Kennedy Dynasty his father and brother, JFK, had worked so hard to build.

In desperation he called the President in Washington and even his mother in Hyannis Port. One wonders what they told him to do. His mother probably told him she would say some special prayers and light some candles. JFK probably told him to continue trying to contain MM and counsel with Lawford and the CIA. Some do not believe it was JFK’s personality to call for a hit on Marilyn to silence her. But, it was his father’s who had done so in the past. But, I do believe it was RFK’s personality to do so. As we shall see, Joseph P. Kennedy was not above putting someone to death who stood in his way. Bobby was more like his father than any of the four brothers, except perhaps for Joe Jr., killed during WW II.

JPK was a businessman and never let religion interfere with his womanizing or politics. He had fallen in love with Rose Fitzgerald and married her. Their first son, Joseph Patrick Kennedy, was born July 28, 1915. He soon found out Rose believed in God, her religion and having children but not in sex for love. So, she submitted to him only for pro-creation, as she believed the church taught, producing nine children and submitting to a constant series of girl friends, affairs and Hollywood liaisons with famous actresses such as Gloria Swanson. Joe’s father was a successful banker so after his graduation from Harvard he entered the family banking business.

“It’s not what you are that counts,” JPK told his sons, “but what people think you are.” Image was the all important thing. Tommy Corcoran said of Joe Sr.: “Always remember that Joe Irish. He has a hot heart and a cold head. That’s what make him interesting—the steam in him. He had a great capacity to analyze what a guy wants most. If he gets this, what will he give up?” This mysterious mix of having a “hot heart and a cool business head” created a special animal vigor, a boundless self-confidence, and an awesome ego. His contemporaries always saw the senior Kennedy as a pushy outsider, a crass Catholic. This caused a growing resentment that Joe would not forget or forgive—which he passed on to his sons, becoming the touchstone of their lives.

Joe Sr confided to Cardinal Spellman over lunch one day when he was trying to help his son JFK with publicity for his campaign, “I just bought a horse for $75,000 and for another $75,000 I put Jack on the cover of TIME (magazine).” The headline read, “The Democratic Whizz of 1957.” It was a tremendous boost to his campaign. Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr. had an estimated fortune of $400 Million by 1960, made in part during a few hours’ selling short just before stock market crash of 1929. He had made his early fortunate as a bootlegger in partnership with organized crime figures during Prohibition. He also had made $5 Million making movies in Hollywood before the crash.

Let’s take a quick look into JPK’s past. In the book, “Sins of the Father,” Ronald Kessler reveals how JPK pillaged the files of associates in the stock market for inside information to further his own interests. He double crossed his associates. Because of his ability to seize the moment in a business situation to his own advantage, JPK began making lots of money. He soon went from advisor to chairman. He was a wheeler and a dealer, making promises that he never intended to keep, he accumulated not only cash and stocks, he bought theater chains as well. He went on to “plunder Pathe. In 1931, he arranged for RKO to give Pathe insiders like himself $80 a share. The rest of the stockholders would receive just $1.50 a share. Favoring insiders to such a degree was nothing more than robbery. Since Joe had acquired the stock for $30 a share, he more than doubled his investment in fewer than two years. Stockholders filed suit, but nothing came of it.” Page 55. He crafted more than one such transaction to enrich himself by placing himself in a position to dictate terms. In 1941 Congress called for an investigation of the movie industry. Wisconsin Congressman, John Schafer, denounced JPK on the floor of the house as the “chief racketeer in the RKO swindle.” Others said the “inside group” at RKO committed fraud by unloading their stock and making millions. Joe was able to stop the investigation due to his friendship with powerful men in the industry, key congressional leaders as well as FDR.

Now, going back to 1929, again, we learn that JPK made an offer to buy a chain of sixty theaters owned by Alexander Pantages, valued at $30 million. His best offer was less than one third that amount. Pantages refused to sell. His arrogance became rampant when his offers were rebuffed. It reminded me of Ahab trying to buy the choice vineyard of Naboth. Joe threatened the man, no doubt hoping to scare him into selling. Not long after, Mr. Pantages was accused of raping Eunice Pringle who had run screaming out of the janitor’s broom closet at one of Pantages’ theaters in LA. The seventeen-year old girl collapsed, screaming, “There he is, the beast!…Don’t let him get at me!” The police hauled Pantages away as he yelled in his Greek foreign accent, “She’s trying to frame me.” The accused did not make a good impression on the jury but Miss Pringle won their hearts as she described in detail what had been done to her against her will. Pantages broke into tears as he denied her story, saying “I did not.” Pantages was sentenced to fifty years in jail. Jerry Giesler, his attorney, was able to obtain a new trial on appeal and he was acquitted on Nov. 28, 1931. It was later revealed that Miss Pringle had a grudge against Pantages because he had refused to buy a playlet her agent had written because he felt it was vulgar. Later, she attacked him at his theater, tearing his shirt and clinging to his legs as he tried to push her away.

Due to the bad publicity of the trial, Pantages’ business suffered such severe losses he was forced to sell out to JPK’s RKO for $3.5 million. His previous offer had been $8 million. Two years after the acquittal, Miss Pringle’s conscience began to bother her and she told her lawyer she wanted to tell the truth. Soon, the story was circulating that she was about to blow the lid off the rape case and name names. Suddenly, she died of unknown causes. The night she died, she was violently ill and red in color, a sign of cyanide poisoning. On her deathbed, Miss Pringle confessed to her mother and a friend that Joseph P. Kennedy Sr., of RKO had paid $10,000 to Pringle and her agent and lover, Dunaev. Joe also had promised that he would make her a movie star. Joe never made her a star and Dunaev never gave her the share of the money she was promised. No autopsy was conducted. The story rings true to JPK’s infamous reputation and character. It was not the first time Joe had paid bribes to corrupt the judicial or political process. The evil spirits that inspired these criminal acts were still alive and well on the night of Marilyn Monroe’s death.

A former special assistant to JFK, Harris Wofford, former Special Assistant to the President, says, when writing of Judith Campbell, Sam Giancana, and the CIA plots to kill Castro: “Aside from moral issues, the morass of potential blackmail in which the Attorney General found himself must have appalled him…How could the CIA and John Kennedy have been so stupid? What could they or the Attorney General do to extricate themselves and minimize the risk of exposure?” “Goddess,” Page 291.

The American public in the early 60’s were much more sensitive to immorality in their leaders than they are today. If JFK’s and RFK’s affairs with MM and all the others had been exposed, it would have destroyed the Kennedy dynasty. There are five books I researched which document RFK’s visits to MM’s house on the night she died. 1. “GODDESS,” by Anthony Summers, 1986. 2. MARILYN, THE LAST TAKE,” By Brown & Barnham, 1992. 3. “CRYPT 33, The Saga of Marilyn Monroe, the Final Word,” by Gregory and Speriglio, 1993. 4. “SEEDS OF DESTRUCTION,” Ralph Martin, 1995. 5. “MARILYN MONROE, the Last Take,” by Donald H. Wolfe, 1998. On page 382 of “Seeds of Destruction,” author Martin confirmed what most of the other authors stated regarding Marilyn’s threats to call a press conference “and tell the world about the treatment she had suffered at the hands of the Kennedy brothers.” But then he added something I had read from any other source: “Now Bobby became livid. In no uncertain terms he told her (MM) she was going to have to leave both Jack and him alone—-no more telephone calls, no letters, nothing. They didn’t want to hear from her anymore. Marilyn lost it at this point, screaming obscenities and flailing wildly away at Bobby with her fists. In her fury she picked up a small kitchen knife and lunged at him. I was with them at this point,” said Lawford,” so I tried to grab Marilyn’s arm. We finally knocked her down and managed to wrestle the knife away. Bobby thought we ought to call Dr. Ralph Greenson, her Beverly Hills psychiatrist, and tell him to come over. Dr. Greenson arrived at Marilyn’s home within the hour.” Page 382.

RFK gave a sworn deposition that he had gone to see MM shortly before her death because she had been bothering his brother. He also said she had clawed at him and that he had taken a doctor who injected her with a tranquilizer. This statement was in the original 723 page police report that later was reduced to 53 pages. But a number of witnesses have testified of having read it. Martin then takes the official position that it was after this that MM took the lethal dose of sleeping pills and sedatives that killer her. We have already cited proof that this was not only untrue, it was impossible for many reasons, most of which we have already mentioned. Beyond that, MM had everything to live for. All the so-called former attempts at suicide were basically ploys to get attention or pleas for help. She was a seductress on many levels.

Although “CRYPT 33” is written in a different style, in that the authors do not try to prove their assertions and points with citations and references. On pages 224 to 227 they refer to events in Marilyn’s life which would definitely indicate she had every reason for which to live. “Her recent victory over Fox and the renewed promise of Joe DiMaggio in her life.” DiMaggio couldn’t stand the Kennedys nor the Hollywood crowd for the way he felt they had used and abused MM. So, he probably would not have tried to talk her out of her plans to hold a press conference and begin “washing all the dirty linen” in the public. On Friday, Aug. 3, reporter Dorothy Killgallen had the guts to suggest that MM was having a “secret” affair. This was a new twist because almost all of MM’s other affairs were more or less out in the public in that she didn’t try to hide them. But, her liaison’s with JFK and later RFK were definitely being kept under wraps to protect their reputations. What she told everyone was that all she wanted now was for them to be totally honest with her and say good bye in person, the normal way. But, in reality there was a different motive. In the chapter 20 of “Fatal Decision,” page 224, the authors tell how Marilyn continued her angry “get the Kennedys” tirade to Sinatra, Giancana, Peter and Pat Lawford. “She wanted Kennedy (RFK) to tell her face to face, but Marilyn wanted to use her muscle to wrangle a deal of some kind, like the one she had with Twentieth. Saving face was foremost, but she wanted respect and submission as well.” Here again we see the parallel of Rev. 17 where the woman is riding the beast, continually trying to control it and bring it into total submission. And this is what led to her death.

In chapter 21, “The Assassination,” pages 229-231, the authors, give their version of what happened. One, Johnny Roselli, is the hit man chosen by Giancana to kill MM. He was inside a van with state-of- the-art recording equipment, taping the conversation between MM and RFK. About 40 minutes or more after RFK left MM’s home, Roselli rings her doorbell. “Because they were old chums, she admitted him…while Roselli and Marilyn sat in her living room, two soldiers quickly entered her home…the shorter hitman removed a chloroform-soaked cloth from a plastic bag and quickly placed it securely over MM’s nose and mouth. The other took out a prepared solution in a thermos bottle. The solution contained a highly concentrated mixture of chloral hydrate, Nembutal, and water. After she stopped struggling from the effects of the chloroform, they stripped off her robe and laid her nude body on the floor, placing a small towel under her buttocks. After dipping a bulb syringe into the solution and filling it to capacity, the larger hitman lubricated the tip with Vaseline and gently slid it into her rectum. With a quick, tight grasp, he expelled the poison into her colon. A second dose followed immediately. They placed her nude body on her bed. Then they went into her bathroom, gathered her numerous containers of prescription drugs, removed and retained all of the Nembutal, and set the remaining containers on her nightstand. Before leaving, they finished up with a few more moments of cleanup. Their work had been expertly executed except for one oversight. Nowhere in sight or nearby was there a glass Marilyn would have used to swallow the pills. But she had never been known to swallow a pill without drinking water or another liquid!” Page 231. This also the version the video follows. They credit Chuck Giancana’s book, “DOUBLE CROSS,” with this information.

In his book, “The Last Days of Marilyn Monroe,” author Donald H. Wolfe quotes one Norman Jefferies, son-in-law to Eunice Murray, MM’s housekeeper. Out of fear for his life Jefferies kept silent for over 30 years. Terminally ill and confined to a wheelchair, he finally told what he saw the night MM died. Pg billige viagra kaufen. 101. He said that she died in the cottage behind the house and her body was later moved to her bed in the main house. “Norman Jefferies recalled that between 9:30 and 10 P.M., Robert Kennedy, accompanied by two men, appeared at the door. They ordered Jefferies and Murray from the house. ‘We were told to leave. I mean they made it clear we were to be gone. We went to a neighbor’s house. I had no idea what was going on. I mean, this was the attorney general of the United States. I didn’t know who the two men were with him…at about ten-thirty Murray and Jefferies saw Bobby and the two men leave. Jefferies stated that he and Murray then ventured back to Marilyn’s. As they entered the open gates and crossed the courtyard toward the kitchen door, they heard Maf barking from the guest cottage, where the light was on and the door was standing open. Whey they entered the cottage, they discovered Marilyn, unclothed, lying across the daybed.” He said it didn’t look like she was breathing and her color was awful—like she was dead. Mrs. Murray called the ambulance. Then Peter Lawford and Pat Newcomb arrived. Around midnight, Dr. Engelberg arrived and Marilyn’s body was moved from the floor of the guest cottage to her bedroom in the main housed. “Jefferies stated that the ‘locked room’ suicide scenario was formulated by the plainclothes officials who had arrived soon after Marilyn’s death. According to Jefferies, at one time 12305 Helena Dr. was swarming with at least a dozen plainclothes officers—then suddenly they were gone. He had no idea who they were. The officer in charge was later identified by Billy Woodfield and several former LAPD officers as Bobby Kennedy’s friend Captain James Hamilton of the LAPD’s Intelligence Division, and the two men who had accompanied Bobby Kennedy to MM’s house that night were identified as two detectives assigned to Kennedy as security officers. Did they intend to murder MM? Or was the intent to subdue her with a ‘hot shot’ if she caused any problems while they broke into her file cabinet in the guest cottage; took the notes, letters, and legal documents; and searched for the book of secrets? The evidence points to premeditated homicide. In the presence of Bobby Kennedy, she was injected with enough barbiturate to kill fifteen people.” Ibid. Pages 462-463. This version of her death and who killed her is the latest, published in 1998.

How God Uses The Machinations Of Men To His Own Glory

Because our Lord is the Creator God of the universe nothing takes Him by surprise, because He knows all things ahead of time, “from the beginning to the end,” Isa. 46:10. Yes, He knows exactly what every person will do…actually, what we all will think even. “For there is not a word in my tongue (still unuttered), but, lo, O Lord, You know it altogether.” Ps. 139:4. Amplified. He even knows what Lucifer (now Satan) will think and do ahead of time. Listen: “You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God I will set my throne on high; I will sit on the mount of assembly in the far north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will make myself like the Most High. But you are brought down to Sheol, to the depths of the Pit.” Isa. 14:12-16. These are the words God will speak to Lucifer during the 1,000 year period. But why? For what reason? After all, isn’t Satan already lost? What is the point? Something to think about. Right?!

Perhaps God operates on an altogether different level than we have imagined. Isa. 55 tells us that His ways are higher (better) than our ways. You also might be interested to know that for the first three centuries of the Christian era most of the early church fathers believed in Universal Reconciliation, including the angelic realm. This concept, along with the true 7th day Sabbath and state of the dead doctrine, was slowly replaced with the false teachings of an angry God along with Sunday worship and eternal hell. We know the major theme of the Bible is the love of God. But how great is His love? How powerful? His concern and preoccupation with Lucifer in the O.T. seems “obsessive” to most people. But, if the Creator is that concerned about his first angel, who rebelled and has never returned, what about the rest of humanity? What about the story of the prodigal son? Was Jesus trying to tell us something we have been resisting for a very long time? What are we missing here?

We already know that it is the Creator’s will (2 Pet. 3:9) and desire for all humanity to be redeemed and that His sacrifice on the cross is sufficient. We also know that Isa. 53:11 predicts Jesus’ soul desire will finally be “satisfied” in the final judgment. So, what does that mean? Satisfied that they finally are all dead and won’t bother Him anymore? Isn’t that what 99% of Christianity teaches? Yes, it is. But if they are wrong about the Sabbath and the State of the dead doesn’t it seem logical that they are wrong on other points as well? The next question is: How could God accomplish all of this? The answer is: because He is the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent God of the universe. “Is anything too hard for Me” He still asks us today.

So, God already knows everything the wicked will do ahead of time. What do you suppose He does with all this information? Does He use it against them by messing up their plans so as to make them look and feel stupid and guilty? Especially, guilty! Does He just play around with them like a cat with a helpless little mouse? Is that the kind of God you have imagined your Creator to be? Or would He take that information and use it to their benefit? He knows ahead of time what they will do and so He simply calculates how to work their immature thoughts and deeds into His plan to mature and grow them up century by century for 6,000 years of this Great Controversy.

In response to this idea, David was just overwhelmed and exclaimed: “Your (infinite) knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high above me, I cannot reach it.” Ps. 139:6. I know some will argue that before God can have a legal right to destroy the wicked he must present them with all of their wicked deeds and thus bring (force?) them to confess that they have sinned and are worthy of death. Then the sentence of death is pronounced upon them. The scenario presented in the book, “THE GREAT CONTROVERSY BETWEEN CHRIST AND SATAN,” is that God will rain literal fire down upon all the wicked until they are totally consumed. This is what I have always believed too until I began to study deeper into God’s ultimate plan of the ages and what the “fire of God” really is along with the concept of the “ages” from the Greek word “Aion.” What you have presented in the book “GREAT CONTROVERSY,” is basically a reformation view of God’s character and the justice He will deal out to the wicked. The only change that was made when the Adventist movement began is that of moving to a middle position of the judgment, which is the extinction or annihilation theory, which is still the position of the church today. EGW did not write all of “Great Controversy,” although I think that she probably agreed with it. I have found that she was progressive in both her thinking and theology in regard to the character of God as well as the judgment. This is evident all through “Desire of Ages,” published in 1898. I have found many quotes in that book which support the idea that God does not destroy. Let me share just one with you from page 487. The title of the chapter is “The Last journey from Galilee.” This is the occasion on which Jesus was rejected by the Samaritans. The disciples were outraged and asked Christ for permission to bring fire down on this particular village to teach them a good lesson. Notice what EGW wrote and then ask yourself if this is not a perfect example of “progressive revelation.” “They (James and John) were surprised to see that Jesus was pained by their words, and still more surprised as His rebuke fell upon their ears, ‘Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy mens lives, but to save them.’ …It is no part of Christ’s mission to compel men to receive Him. It is Satan, and men actuated by his spirit, that seek to compel the conscience. Under a pretense of zeal for righteousness, men are confederate with evil angels bring suffering upon their fellow men, in order to convert them to their ideas of religion; but Christ is ever showing mercy, (how often? EVER which means all the time without end) ever seeking to win by the revealing of His love. He can admit no rival in the soul, nor accept of partial service; but He desires only voluntary service, the willing surrender of the heart under the constraint of love. There can be no more conclusive evidence that we possess the spirit of Satan than the disposition to hurt and destroy those who do not appreciated our work, or who act contrary to our ideas.” DA 487. In the book, “Christ Object Lessons,” she wrote, “God destroys no man.” Published 1900. I believe that as we study Jesus’ character we will be formed in His image more and more.

This is what He has promised, that one day we will be like Him…perfected into His image and likeness. As our Lord Jesus (Creator) observes all that is transpiring He is happy even when the “Kings of the earth and rulers take counsel together against Him and His anointed.” Ps. 2:1. What is His response? “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh.” So, our Creator is not at all threatened by man’s rebellion or temper tantrums because He realizes it is all part of the “growing up process” we must go through to reach the full measure of the man, Christ Jesus, as Paul tells us in Eph. 4. So, “nothing can be against the truth but only for the truth.” 2 Cor. 13:8. It doesn’t matter what man does God always gets glory out of it. Even when He Jesus knew the Jews planned to crucify Him He declared that He would get glory out that terrible deed. “And, I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all (men) unto me.” John 12:32.

Now, we are ready for this text in Psalm 76:10. “Surely the wrath of man shall praise You; the remainder of wrath shall You restrain and gird and arm yourself with it.” Amplified. Another says, “Man’s futile wrath will bring you glory (reveal your true character). You will use it as an ornament.” Psalm 76:10. LB. And isn’t that exactly what many Christian churches and believers do today? Yes. They wear the cross on a chain around their necks to show they believe in Jesus. And churches place a cross bar on their steeples to signify that they believe in the cross of Jesus Christ. So, it doesn’t matter what man does, God already has planned from eternity past to eternity future how to accommodate all of man’s ideas, good and bad, into His plans to bring His creation to perfection. And that is why He tells us to praise Him for all things, no matter what. Eph. 5:20, I Thess. 4:18. We know this is true but most of the time we don’t act like it is true when things go bad. We, like Jacob of old say, “All these things are against me.” But in reality all of “these things” are for us because “all things are working out for good to those who love God” and serve Him. Rom. 8:28.

Now, with that clearly in our minds, let me ask you a question. If the Creator knew everything that would transpire ahead of time, that is in advance, before it happened, even to the very thoughts of all of His creatures, why would such a powerful God plan for such a failure to occur, as theologians claim will take place at the end of the world when almost everyone is lost? Can you see how illogical and incongruous such an idea is? Why spend all that time and effort educating everyone through trials and tribulations just to burn them up on a trash heap at the close of time because things just didn’t work out as well as He had hoped. Boy, that is sure poor planning…not thinking or looking ahead of time, which is not hard for God because He already knows the future.

So, without fully realizing it, we have foisted on to God a mind set that is altogether false. God is not like what we have imagined Him to be at all. It is not His character to purposely create a world in which the majority of His creatures would be born, live and die for no good purpose or reason at all, except to suffer and prove God is just in punishing them now, in this life, to an extent, and then finishing the job in the lake of fire after the 1,000 years. What kind of character does that make God out to be? It just doesn’t make sense.

Of course, many will object to this line of reasoning with the argument that man is created with free will and God cannot force Him to do what is right or to be saved, etc. Let me answer this seemingly rock solid objection with some pure logic. When you permit your baby or child to do certain things…crawl or walk in a certain direction do you watch over him/her and guide and protect your baby so he/she will not get hurt. Absolutely! And that is precisely the way God is with His children…for we are all like little children to Him. And even in the final harvest time only a few have reached the maturity of Jesus Christ and are ready to be harvested. And did you know that there are at least three phases to the second coming…three phases of the harvest. 1. Barley. 2. Wheat. 3. Grapes. A lot more study needs to be done on these harvests.

Let me ask another question. Who is in charge of this universe? God or man? Well, all you need to do to answer that question is read the book of Job. God asked Job a series of questions that Job admitted he could not answer. So, in his broken pride and humility he decided to put his hand over his mouth and be quiet and listen. Job 40, 41. So, it is very important for us as Christians to realize Who is actually in charge of Creation. It isn’t man or the devil, although both like to think and act like it most of the time until some kind of disaster strikes and then they become humble very quickly. And I’m not saying God brings the disaster. He merely permits it. And this is the way God speaks to those who rebel against Him. “Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath (withdrawing) and vex them in His sore displeasure.” Psalm 2. The prophecies of the Bible prove that God is in control because He knows the future.

If you knew ahead of time that the building where you work was going to be hit by an earthquake or bomb what would you do? You would not go into that building on the particular day. And you would try to get all the rest of the people out as well. So, your knowledge of the future gave you protection and control of your life. God, in His great love and wisdom has given us many prophecies about the future so we may know ahead of time what is going to happen. This is for our own protection and those of our loved ones and friends.

Our Heavenly Father is in charge of all things in the earth, including all of the people. “The king’s heart (mind) is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: He turns it whichever way He will.” Proverbs 21:1. The Lord moves people and changes their minds to accomplish His will. It is a total waste of time for us to worry about how we are going to change the world because God is in charge of doing that. He utilizes those of His servants, such as Joseph and Daniel, etc. to accomplish His plan. The people who constantly worry become brittle, and when God tries to shape them they crumble. Knowing God is in control and acting in accordance with this knowledge gives us peace of mind and happiness.

In the article you just read, I tried to show you how God works to accomplish His will in the lives of those who do not know Him, even though they may admit there is a God or higher power. Throughout history the Lord has continually accomplished His purposes in spite of man’s worst opposition. We can look back on almost 6,000 years of history and clearly see how He has dealt with every sort of situation and always won. Even the worst of men and women have failed to thwart’s God’s plans. Since we are now well into the last days, moving toward the great time of trouble we can expect more and more problems, deceit and deception on every hand. But we need not worry. God has overcome this in the past and He will overcome it again if we let Him use us to defeat the seducing and seductive tricks of the enemy. So, let’s talk about how this works.

Throughout the history of the human race the art of seduction has been successfully used time and again, repeatedly. Contrary to what you might be thinking this seduction has been carried out by men much more often than by women. Lucifer is the first one to use his wily arts on one third of the heavenly host so that they were seduced into following him. Ezekiel 28 details Lucifer’s sins in terms of what he accomplished by his great wisdom and talents. “With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou has gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures.” Ezek. 28:4. So, the bottom line motive for Lucifer was wealth because money is power. It is the “Golden Rule of Babylon.” “He that has the money makes the rules.”

2 Sam. 15:6 records that “Absalom stole the hearts of the men of Israel.” How did he do this? By promising them a better administration with justice and equity for all. Of course, those who did not feel they were getting a fair shake from his father, King David, would naturally be inclined to listen to Absalom. The previous verse, 5, tells us that when anyone came to see David’s handsome son and began to do show him honor by bowing before him, Absalom “would extend his hand, lift him up, and kiss him…so he stole away the loyalty of the men of Israel.” And what was his motive? He wanted to take the place of His father as king so he would have all the riches and honor. He had the spirit of the first rebel, Lucifer who wanted the throne of His Creator. When most people hear the word “seduced or seduction” a sexy woman who has just seduced someone usually comes to their mind. The word “seduced” is only used three times in the OT. The best example is Ezek. 13:10. “They have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace;and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered mortar:” So, to seduce a person means to trick or deceive or lead astray…to entice a person to go against what he/she believes is right. In most cases the motive is to get money and power. Men or women who seduce others for sex usually have money as a motive. Isn’t that why prostitutes do it? They want money for themselves and/or for their handler or pimp. So, people are seducing and being seduced all the time. 2 Tim. 3:13 predicted our day. “Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”

Even Jesus’s very first warning in Matt. 24 was in regard to this very thing… “let no man deceive you.” Let me name a few ways sincere Christians are being seduced today. 1. They are told in church that the money they give is going for certain causes when in reality the majority goes to maintain the corporate structure. This is true of many fund raising projects. They are just scams, ripping the people off. Many examples could be given of this happening in various denominations, even SDAs. The Davenport scandal was only one and there were others before and since that case which became publicly known in the early 80’s. In fact, the recent resignation of the GC president was more or less an instant replay, only much lower key. As to whether there have been or will be financial losses we probably will never know. This is just another example of the seduction that goes on all the time without people even realizing what is going on. After it is whitewashed they just go back into their laodicean dreamland.

2. The medical establishment is continually seducing people into believing they can cure various diseases such as cancer with one of several treatments (modalities) such as surgery, cobalt, radium or chemo-therapy. They usually don’t mention the percentage of people who die and how low of a success rate they have. But the worst seduction is in regard to vaccinations which do no good whatever and cause widespread damage, especially to children. I have two books advertised in this paper that totally document this. You should order them to educate yourself. Knowledge is power.

3. But the worst seduction is in regard to what people believe about God. The Catholic doctrine about God is the preferred view most christians accept without realizing what they are doing. The Catholic church teaches that God is a killer and destroyer in both the old and new testaments. And most of their priests subscribe to the doctrine of eternal hell fire. There may be a few who believe in extinction as do a few Protestants, such as J.W.’s, but even SDAs believe in the false doctrine of extinction or annihilation…i.e., that God will destroy the sinner in the “literal” coming lake of fire. What a blasphemy against the Name of Jesus!! If you are taking the precious Name of our Lord and Saviour in vain by believing this seducing doctrine I beg of you to stop it immediately. I hope that got your attention.

How God Works In The Lives Of Everyone

In the past I have shared many Scriptures in my paper and books which clearly reveal God’s passionate love for the entire human race. None is excluded from His Master plan. “Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who sins will die.” Ezek. 18:4. Jesus’ parable of the lost sheep was meant to illustrate His ultimate victory in rescuing every sinner from the wilderness of sin and shame.

Now, let’s take a closer look at the word “wilderness” itself because it has a profound significance, meaning “seclusion and obscurity.” GC 55. Our Lord is involved in every human life for no baby is born and grows to maturity (or dies prematurely) unless it is His will. He knows all things in advance. Isa. 46:10. “Declaring the end from the beginning And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure.” What is God’s “purpose” that He wants to establish? And what is His “good pleasure?” An atheist once confronted me with this objection: “Mike, if there really were a God who is so perfect and orderly, how can you explain this messed up world?” That was about 21 years ago. I had no good answer until the last few years when I began to realize that God is still in the process of creating and perfecting our “Little World,” which EGW tells us is the “lesson book for the universe.” DA 25. So, what are the lessons God is teaching the universe through us?

Paul gives us an important clue in Eph. 3:9-11. “And to make all men (men is a supplied word not in the original, so all means “all of creation,” including Satan and his angels, not just the men of this world) see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ.” KJV. For the next verse the RSV is much clearer. “That through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places.” v . 10. The principalities and powers Paul is referring to primarily are those in our atmospheric heavens which he refers to in Eph. 6. But it also refers to the entire universe as every creature, fallen and unfallen is learning as they watch the unfolding events on planet earth.

As I read about ten biographies and watched four videos on MM’s life, Marilyn and the Kennedys became like family to me. I don’t want them to miss out on heaven and be destroyed in the lake of fire. I’m sure many of you feel the same way about some of your loved ones who passed away suddenly without giving their hearts to the Lord. I’ll never forget a very distraught mother calling me after her son took his life. She could hardly talk. What she wanted to know was if the Bible teaches that God has a plan to bring all those who don’t go to heaven from the grave so He can try and save them? I assured her that from my studies on the subject that was precisely the reason for the second resurrection. If I had been asked that question just a year or so earlier I would have told her that her son was lost beyond hope, not only because he took his own life, and could not repent, but because there is no “second chance” for those who refuse to accept Christ in this life. Obviously, like many of you, I was very sure of my position on this theological point. So, what has changed my mind? Let me try and reason with you briefly in four points.

First of all, there is THE SOVEREIGN WILL OF GOD. 2 Peter 3:9 tells us God made a promise long ago to His creation, which He intends to keep. Therefore, in spite of man’s sin and rebellion, it is His sovereign will that none of His creation perish. 2. Paul goes into much more detail regarding the “mystery” of God’s will in Eph. 1:10-11, explaining that from the beginning the Creator “purposed in Himself…that in the fulness times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth, even in Him.” Furthermore, Paul informs us that the “principalities and powers” he speaks of in Eph. 6, are watching us, learning as they observe God’s people, the true “church” in every age (Acts of the Apostles, pg. 11) of the Great Controversy. 3. Phil. 2:6-11 drives the point home even further with the incredible statement that the day is coming (obviously the final day of judgment) when “every knee shall bow and every tongue confess.” vs. 10, 11. I always thought this would be a confession that was not really sincere but made grudgingly by all the lost when God revealed the full spectrum of truth to them in the panoramic view or “big movie in the sky,” at the last day of judgment. Everyone would bow down and admit that God was right and they were wrong. But they wouldn’t really be sorry and would continue in their rebellion. At that point God would rain fire and brimstone down upon them and they would all be burned up in this giant lake of fire. After considerable research I have found that there are several serious problems with this theory. A. God’s fire is not literal. The burning bush in Moses day and the tongues of fire on the day of Pentecost easily prove this. B. Every instance in the Bible of literal fire coming down from heaven or burning people up is from Satan. C. In contrast, Jesus said in Luke 12:49, “I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?” Is He talking about a literal fire here? Obviously not. He is referring to the “fire of truth and righteousness” He was about to bring to the Jewish nation which they would reject. Prov. 25:21, 22 is another example of this same type of fire. God’s Word itself is spoken of as a fire. John the Baptist was called a “burning and shining light,” of truth. John 5:35. Rev. 13:13 speaks of a fire coming down from heaven for the purpose of deception in the last days. This is not from God. D. The “lake of fire” at the time of the final judgment, after the 1,000 years, needs a long second look. First of all, lake is water and Rev. 17:15 tells us that water represents people. So, here is a vast lake of lost humanity outside the city of Jerusalem and they are truly “burned up” first of they are really “burning up” with regret and remorse because they are not inside the city. They are “on fire” with anger, envy, and jealousy because they have been left out of the kingdom of God. Jesus predicted this would happen. So, they are out their just burning up with hatred, throwing anger fits right and left because of the way things have turned out. So, how long will this go on?

We are not told exactly, but Rev. 20:3 refers to this time period as “a little season.” If Isa. 65:20 applies then it could be one hundred years. Given the living conditions and lousy company, and Satan in control of everyone without God’s protection, I would say even one year would seem like a life-time. Maybe even one month or one week or one day! Only God knows how long it will take to cleanse and purify the hearts of His rebellious children. Rev. 21:25 indicates the gates of the city are never closed, so the invitation and opportunity to come to Jesus on His terms is always open. I imagine some people will take that option sooner than others who are more stubborn and hard-hearted. I might add here that this word phrase, “bring glory to the Father” is very important. When I was still fighting this idea it occurred to me one day that it would be impossible for this bowing down and confessing before God’s throne to bring any glory to the Father unless it was really sincere…not a faked or phony confession. Secondly, it could not be forced because God does not use force. Besides, that kind of confession would not bring any glory to God the Father. But the point that really nailed it down for me was this word “confess.” Just one month before he died, at the age of 80, Louis Abbott was interviewed by Gary Amirault. It is not copyrighted, so I have made hundreds of copies for people. I have probably watched it now about thirty times, and each time I learn something new. This man studied the Greek for at least fifty years. He points out that the word, “confess” in the KJV is not as strong as the original word which is more like “avow,” including “praise” to the Father. Many believe Louis was the best scholar in the world. I would not be foolish enough to argue the point. All you have to do is listen to him for a few minutes. Don’t let his simple manner of speaking lead you to believe he wasn’t sharp. He was an expert. He was also sick and died a month later. Still, he could run circles around anyone else who might have been so foolish to have tried to argue with him.

When I talked to a friend of Louis’ about the concept of Universal Restoration, he pointed out that no one could call Jesus Lord unless he is led by the Holy Spirit. But Paul goes even farther with his logic. “Wherefore, I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: And that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.” I Cor. 12:3. So, all the lost out side the New Jerusalem will eventually be led by the Holy Spirit to bow and confess, just as Paul predicts, and it will be an honest and true confession. I have found that people who refuse to believe even when presented with such overwhelming proof from the Bible not only have a mental block on this subject, just as I did for years, they have anger and hatred toward someone they don’t want to be saved. Perhaps, someone who has hurt and/or wronged them.

Let me make one more powerful point regarding the restoration or reconciliation of all. Jude 6 tells us that the fallen angels who “left their own habitation, (they were not demoted or kicked out) He (God) hath reserved under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.” What is the opposite of darkness? It is, light, of course. So, in that judgment of the great day, God is going to flood the earth with His glory…the lights are going to come on and these evil angels are going to be enlightened. That is truly good news. Recently, I read a man’s conversion story about how God gave him a vision of the fallen angel who had been deceiving him for years. This evil angel lost his power in this man’s life and he had to leave. This man testified that God showed him this fallen angel sitting on the stump of a log in a wasteland, weeping. Although I was very happy for this man’s deliverance I suddenly realized something that I had not realized before. These evil angels have deep feelings and emotions. That’s the way God created them. Even though they are fallen they still have feelings of various kinds. They are capable of feeling loss and shame and weeping over it. I could share other stories with you along this line. But suffice it to say Jude 6 tells us that these fallen angels are going to have their chains of darkness removed in that great judgment day. It will no doubt take a long time but eventually every one of them will bow and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, and this will certainly bring glory to God.

God led me into this research to help us see His future plans. Marilyn Monroe and the Kennedys were basically sincere people. Marilyn wanted to be a movie star to entertain people and receive the praise and honor and glory that goes with being a successful actress. She never felt that she attained this goal and was hurt, angry and bitter, feeling perhaps, like Esau, that she had been cheated out of her birthright. JPK felt the same way about being president of the USA. He was bitter and he passed this onto his sons who imbibed in his spirit and followed in his footsteps. I don’t believe they were given an opportunity to really know the gospel or accept it. The same is true with all the rest of the lost. So, that will be our job to present it to them. This is the Father’s will and plan. Remember that this is what He says He wants to do. I have no doubt that He will do it for He says that nothing is too hard for Him. Everyone who agrees with Him and desires to join with Him to accomplish this lofty goal will have the Father’s Name written in their foreheads. Rev. 14:1, 2. This is what I desire more than anything. I hope it is what you desire too. Now, let go us to point four.

4. The book “The Great Controversy” has been the main source and authority for SDA theology for the Lake of Fire and what will happen to the wicked at that time. It slowly dawned on me that EGW’s writings are not the final word on this subject. That doesn’t mean I have rejected EGW as God’s prophet to the Remnant anymore than we reject John the Baptist as Christ’s forerunner. What we must do is recognize human limitation and the timing of truth for each generation. Sr. White ministered and wrote mainly in the 19th century. Even she stated that more truth would be revealed to God’s final Remnant. Let me now share with you two quotes I have recently found which clearly show God used EGW to teach Universal Reconciliation whether she or anyone else realized it or not.

The first one is from “DESIRE OF AGES,” page 826.

“The gospel is to be presented, not as a lifeless theory, but as a living force to change the life. God desires that the receivers of His grace shall be witnesses to its power. Those whose course has been most offensive to Him He freely accepts; when they repent, He imparts to them His divine Spirit, places them in the highest positions of trust, and sends them forth into the camp of the disloyal to proclaim His boundless mercy. He would have His servants bear testimony to the fact that through His grace men may possess Christlikeness of character, and may rejoice in the assurance of His great love. He would have us bear testimony to THE FACT that He cannot be satisfied until the human race are reclaimed and reinstated in their holy privileges as His sons and daughters.” DA 826.

The second quote I wish to share with you is from “Desire of Ages,” 425.

The occasion is the transfiguration of Jesus on a high mountain. This event is recorded in Matt. 17, Mark 9 and Luke 9. Moses and Elijah were selected to come and talk to Jesus and encourage Him to continue His mission to save the world. Notice what EGW says the burden of their interview was really all about.

“These men, (Moses & Elijah) chosen above every angel around the throne, had come to commune with Jesus concerning the scenes of His suffering, and to comfort Him with the assurance of the sympathy of heaven. The hope of the world, the salvation of every human being, was the burden of their interview.” DA 425.

Commenting on Ezek. 18 where God says that “All souls are mine” EGW states: “All men have been bought with this infinite price. By pouring the whole treasury of heaven into this world, by giving us in Christ all heaven, God has purchased the will, the affections, the mind, the souls, of every human being. Whether believers or unbelievers, all men are the Lord’s property.” COL 326.

These quotes are on level four, Universal Reconciliation. Most EGW quotes are on level 1. The most famous it from COL 84. “God Destroys no man.” COL 84. Cf. 5T 219, 220. Regarding angels: “Angels are sent from the heavenly courts, not to destroy, but to watch over and guard imperiled souls to save the lost, to bring the straying ones back to the fold.” R & H, May 10, 1906. Cf. Education 304.

Beloved, the Lord called me to preach His holy Word when I was very young. My mother says I preached my first sermon when I was ten years old. My first talk in a church was when I was 17 and my first full length sermon was when I was 19 years old at Sandpoint, Idaho, in 1958, almost forty two years ago. God’s last call ministries began in May, 1970. The character of God message began in May 1977. Now, I explained so you would know God has been helping and protecting me all these years. Nothing can stop this message of His character. All who refuse to believe it and fight it are only hurting themselves, as Jesus told Saul of Tarsus. “It is hard for thee to kick against the pricks (goads).” Acts 9:5. A few days later Saul began preaching about Jesus in the synagogues. Acts 9:22 in the LB tells us that: “Paul became more and more fervent in his preaching, and the Damascus Jews couldn’t withstand his proofs that Jesus was indeed the Christ.” The KJV and most other versions simply state that Paul’s preaching “confounded the Jews…proving that this is the very Christ.”

We know that the Rabbis (teachers) and leaders of Israel could not argue against or disprove the teachings of Jesus. The only thing they could do to stop Him was to kill Him, which they finally did. Now, when the disciples begin preaching they cannot disprove them, so they persecute and kill them. Now, when Saul is converted they cannot defeat him because he is teaching the truth. Again, their only option is to kill them or put them in prison. We know that Paul spent a lot of time in jail. The same thing is true today. Those who have tried to disprove the character of God message have resorted to slander or lies of one sort or another. But nothing ever stops the message. My point here is simply this. You cannot prove this message wrong on any level. Those SDAs who attempt to prove God destroys always end up trying to quote Ellen G. White. Why? Because they cannot prove the message wrong from the Bible. And I have already showed you here that Sister White teaches God does not destroy and that He plans to save everyone. Sure, she made some statements in her earlier writings that say God kills, but in her later writings she says He does not. So, what does that prove? That she was progressive in her understanding.

I want to close with this quote from DA. In the chapter, “Among Snares,” beginning on page 456 the servant of the Lord states: “The Pharisees had not put their will on the side of God’s will. They were not seeking to know the truth, but to find some excuse for evading it; Christ showed that this was why they did not understand His teaching…Jesus gave the rabbis an evidence of His divinity by showing that He read their hearts. Ever since the healing at Bethesda they had been plotting His death. Thus they were themselves breaking the law which they professed to be defending. ‘Did not Moses give you the law,’ He said, ‘and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go yet about to kill Me?”

“LIKE A SWIFT FLASH OF LIGHT THESE WORDS REVEALED TO THE RABBIS THE PIT OF RUIN INTO WHICH THEY WERE ABOUT TO PLUNGE. FOR AN INSTANT THEY WERE FILLED WITH TERROR. THEY SAW THAT THEY WERE IN CONFLICT WITH INFINITE POWER.” DA 456.

Did you get that? These so-called, learned doctors, teachers, rabbis of Jewish law came face to face with the Creator of the Universe Himself…and they were “filled with terror.” Why? Because they knew they were fighting against God Himself, which EGW identified so eloquently as “INFINITE POWER.” But would they humble themselves and admit they were wrong? No. They were not about to do that. Why? Because they wanted to maintain their influence with the people. In this they were blind also for the people were siding with Jesus. Notice: “The rulers were silenced; and many of the people exclaimed, ‘Is not this He, whom they seek to kill? But, lo, He speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto Him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?” DA 457.

Now, beloved, I have been doing this work now for nearly 30 years and I have seen it all. I have seen people fight the character of God message on every level. And I will tell you that they never win. When people came to Jesus and refused to believe what do you suppose happened to them? What happens today? Are they happy? Do they prosper? No, they don’t. They are miserable people. Some, like Saul of Tarsus, finally give up and believe the message and support it. Others often become bitter and give up their faith completely, if they have any faith to begin with. But I will tell you one thing for sure. Once you encounter this great truth about Jesus and refuse to accept it you will never have anymore spiritual growth, only regression. This, I can guarantee based on the Word of God. Look at Judas and what happened to him. Look at the Jewish nation. These examples should motivate you to take a long second look at the character of God message. I must admit that it took me awhile to fully accept the character of God message myself. But once I did, my life was filled with more joy than I had ever known before in my life. But God has His perfect timing. I pray that today may be your day to accept Jesus plan for your life. Don’t keep on fighting Him. It just isn’t worth it for you can never win.
