“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.  And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.” {Joel 2:28-29

.

We live in an age where there are a multitude of false religions, messiahs and gods, these are they which advocate another way other then Jesus Christ, while still others do not seek God, but rather claim an enlightenment, notably the New Age Movement.  It is likely that most if not all among our numbers would recognize the identity of the most popular and effective advocate of the New Age, were I to name the person.

.

In the Holy Scriptures “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way the truth and the life: no one cometh unto the Faith, but by me. {Matthew 14:6}.  Still others claim to be a Christian or of the Christian Faith, while refusing to live the life, which is scriptural for such believers.  Again Jesus says, “But in vein do they worship me, teaching for doctrines, the commandments of men.” {Matthew 15:9}.
.

Such people are quick to claim they attend Church or don’t do anything bad, such as murder and burglary, while doing their best to keep the commandments.  Jesus replied to all these excuses when he said, “Not everyone that saith unto me Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” {Matthew 7:21}.  Notice the word ‘do’ in the aforementioned verse!
.

..

Let me sum up the topic by saying there is no other way to Almighty God, the creator of all things, save through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, that means precisely as stated, no other way.  Still, there are those who teach and preach a number of ways to reach God!  “Thou believeth there is one God; thou doeth well; the devils believe also, and tremble.”
.
It takes more then hollow words, for “…be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” {James 2:19}.  The Holy Scriptures tell us …”faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.” {James 2:17}.   It should be self evident to any observant person; we are close to the end of this age, the Rapture of the Church and the ‘Second Coming’ of Jesus Christ.
.
Prior to these events taking place, there will be what I refer to as a final alter call, a worldwide last call to repentance and of salvation, before the Almighty God brings down the curtain on this dispensation.  The below story is of course fiction, but it addresses this very topic; you are invited to join with us now as we travel to that time and place, where it all begins to unfold.

                                        The Prophetic Countdown     The Prophesies Remembered

                                 The Leader Among Us     The Church Visitor
     Angel at my Door
 

By George McCullum
The year 2012 finally came and went; now it is 2013, the year a leader of the entire Confederate Cause was predicted to appear!  In my mind he would be more then welcome for several reasons, the liberation of the Confederacy for sure, which is an issue that was dear to my heart.  However, another even more important concern in my mind has been that for most of my adult life, I’ve lived through a decaying culture and society in which we live.  Christianity, Judaism and the morals brought to society by the Judeo-Christian teachings were under attack at every level, and it was becoming obvious to anyone still in their right mind.  But worry was not something I often engaged in regarding the problems the Yankee Empire faces, knowing it is all in the hands of the Almighty God.

   .
My wife and I weren’t able to travel as much as we had in our younger years, but rather between yard-work, shopping and other such things we simply choose to surf the television programs.  Our prayers were that somehow by the grace of Almighty God, we would see some sign of precisely when and where this leader, would make his appearance.  I for one knew well that this man, whom ever he mighty be, while a very common man in many ways would be an expert in economic, political, economic and military affairs.  But even more important he would launch a Christian Revival, which inevitably proves to be the greatest since the ascension of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
.
My wife Alice and I believe The Prophetic Countdown and did experience an Angelic Visitation, or at least I myself did, and she had faith that the entire situation as I described it to her, was true.  The two of us were not in doubt, this man would make an appearance, but also we were confident he would contact us regarding the Confederate Cause as well as our organization, the Confederate Legion, such as it was.  Still even then I knew from behind the scenes details regarding the prophesies, which I had received in years past, indicated it would all be begin on 22 July 2013 at the earliest.  However, I just couldn’t just sit at home and wonder when, where and how, I just had to do a little searching!

   .
My wife and I made preparations to travel to Montgomery Alabama, while we were not sure what we would find there, we were certain the Lord was leading us into a situation, which would validate the fulfillment of the prophesies.  By the time we made all the arrangements and set aside the necessary resources, in cluding a repair job to our aging automobile, the 4th of July had come and went, before we were getting underway.  Still unknown to the two of us, events were taking place behind the scenes, which would profoundly effect the course of history in general, and the The Prophetic Countdown in particular.

                      The Gunnery Sergeant

 “Numquam Iterum – Never Again”

..

The 2012 General Elections had brought many changes, among them was that the Governor of Alabama had resigned just in time for both major parties to field a candidate.   The victor was a man like unto Thomas J. Watts, Governor from 1863 until 1865, and also the Attorney General of the Confederate States of America.  Publicly the new governor was a conservative, and indeed he was, but that particular term did not altogether describe the man himself.  The new Governor a man named Henry Marshall, who was elected to office on a wave of chaos and calamity in the political arena.

.

Certain events to which neither my wife or myself were unaware, had been unfolding for some time, behind the scenes in the office of the Governor of Alabama, the Honorable Governor Henry Marshall!   We had both suspected that the Leader of whom we saught, would first show himself in a large congregation of people, such as a Confederate Memorial Service, Political Rally or possibly even in a large Church, as an invited speaker.  So the 22nd of July falling as it did on Monday, we decided to locate and attend what we figured was the most likely Church Service, where he might appear, due to its size.

.
While visiting a local resturaunt we spotted a family, which we perceived to be Christians as well as regular Church attenders, based upon their demeanor, and the topic of their conversation.  When asked, they recommended The Gospel Tabernacle, which is located in Montgomery itself!  But in the meantime, while we were going through the motions of locating the Prophesied Confederate Leader, not knowning who he was or where he might appear, in the Office of the Governor, things were moving forward.  The governor entered his office early that morning, and was not at all surprised that his Executive Secretary, Mrs. Jamie Hood, was already on the job, and she greeted the governor as he entered.
.

“Good morning Governor Marshall, I pray you are doing well this morning; I’ve just made a fresh pot of coffee, do you care for any?  Governor Marshall glanced at her with a polite but business like expression on his face, then paused and gave a smile as well as a polite response. “By all means Jamie, and why all the formalities, there is only the two of us here, its Governor Marshall already!  And by the way Jamie, did you manage to locate Gunnery Sergeant Wayne Iverson?”  Yes I did Henry, and he is a Master Gunnery Sergeant!  “O.K. Jamie, Master Gunnery Sergeant, all the better, what did he have to say?”

.
Jamie handed the governor a cup of coffee, which is black as he preferred; “He seemed a little surprised that the Governor of Alabama would call on him, after only three months in office, but he did indicated he would keep the appointment.  I scheduled him for a meeting with you at 6:00 this evening for an informal luncheon at the Governors Mansion!”  What’s he doing in Montgomery anyhow, I thought his last assignment before retirement was Fort Bragg North Carolina?  Well Henry, that is true, but he was raised as a boy here in Montgomery, and since his retirement, he has returned with his family to reestablish a residence.
.
The Governor, just beginning to sip on his coffee continued to pace the floor, and hadn’t yet entered the Governors Office; “isn’t he a little young to be retired from the military?”  Henry, he’s not all that young, though I am sure he would think that a complement, he is 47 years of age this spring!  And Henry, you haven’t told me why the interest in a retired Marine Master Gunnery Sergeant, whom you’ve never met?  “Jamie, I’ll fill you in once I’ve work it all out, but for the time being, no I don’t know him, but our fathers fought with the same unit in Vietnam.  I just thought it time, now that he is retired, we should get to know one another, in remembrance of our fathers.
.
It was Tuesday 9 April 2013, and the previous four years had wrought havoc, yet on the surface there was a calming in society, but there was also an undertow of discontent that just wouldn’t go away, certainly not anytime soon.  The damage done by the Odoma Administration has been deep; many of the States have become embittered and are vary close to taking matters into their own hands.  The Confederacy has not as yet been brought into the mix, and no politician spoke of it openly.  The Governor turned and walked into his office, taking a seat behind his desk; there was a stack of papers before him to review, but still, his mind drifted back to the previous week.
.
The Alabama Governor recalled his previous meeting with Governor William McRae of Mississippi, which had taken place at Tuscaloosa, while they walked in the park near the University.  Governor Marshall had glanced over at his old friend, Governor McRae, as they walked, “Bill, what can we do about the mess the Federals have left us in, what are our options; we must work together on this.  We will all stand or fall together!”  Governor McRae paused, then stooped down and picked up a small piece of broken tree branch from the ground.  Finding a bare space of dirt at the base of a nearby tree, he began to draw crude looking stars on the ground, in the shape of Saint Andrews Cross.
.
Bill arose from the ground, slowly handed the stick to Henry, who then bent over at the knees, crouching low to the ground and scratched thee letters in the dirt below the Saint Andrews Cross, which Bill had drawn; CSA, it said.  Then standing to his feet he looked at Governor Bill and stated, “there are other Governors thinking along similar lines, are there not?”  Henry, how about we meet in a secure place, somewhere completely out of the public spotlight?  Henry looked back at Bill and smiled, there is such a place at the Governors Mansion in Montgomery, a room originally built as a bomb shelter during the 1950’s and since forgotten, now converted to a secure conference room.

.
Henry, we should meet there at your earliest convenience, Governor Sterling Wilcox of Georgia agrees with us, we have not spoken openly about it, for fear of bringing the Federals down upon our heads.  However, we did talk about the economic and political disasters now befalling the States, and he responded in a like manner, by drawing on the ground.  Bill, the public must be made to perceived that we are meeting for an Economic Conference, and nothing more, otherwise the Federal will be at our door.  Suddenly Governor Henry Marshall came to himself, looked down at the pile of papers before him on the desk, and began to wade through them, one page at a time.
.
Among the paper were some very important proposed legislation that needed reviewed, a House Committee would be meeting with him later in the week and he wanted to be certain everything was in order?  The day seemed to fly by so rapidly he felt like it had only been moments since entering the Executive Office, and speaking to Mrs. Jamie Hood.  But here he was back at the Governors Mansion reading the daily newspaper, and waiting for the arrival of his guests.  He had gotten engrossed in a second page story, when he heard the door chimes ring, and called out to his wife that he would answer the door himself..
.
The economic situation being what it was, a sizeable portion of the house servants were let go, leaving only a skeleton crew, so the Governor arose from his chair and headed for the door.  As he opened the door Governor William McRae of Mississippi, Governor Sterling Wilcox of Georgia as well as Retired Master Gunnery Sergeant Wayne Iverson greeted him.  Each of them in the company of their wives; the three couples have sons or daughters but all of whom are grown, so they are not present on this occasion.  Governor Henry Marshall looked at those before him, gave a smile as well as a warm Dixie Welcome, “Greetings all of you, please do come in, you are just in time for supper.”
.
Governor Marshall lead the group to the sitting room where the ladies were invited by his wife Julia, the First Lady of Alabama, who pointed the other three ladies Sheryl, Janet and Alison toward the ‘Powder Room’ so as to refresh themselves.  Soon they were gathered for the evening meal, the conversation was polite, everyone careful not to mention the real purpose of their visit.  Mostly they spoke of the weather, sports and of social events, the normal topics of discussion!  However this was not the Anti-bellum South, while all four of the ladies were the models of feminine womanhood, they were nonetheless top professionals in their own right, and worked with their husbands on many an occasion.
.
After the meal had concluded and everyone assembled in the Sitting Room, Governor Marshall, having stepped into a side room to answer his Cell Phone, now reentered the Sitting Room.  Ladies and Gentlemen, it is close to 7:00 O’clock, I do believe it is time for our conference to begin, would everyone be so kind as to follow me.  Everyone present that evening had at some time in their lives, been involved in situations where secrecy was of the essence, so they all well knew the urgency of the situation.  They all followed the man they knew simply as Henry, to his residential Executive Office, where a picture on the wall was moved aside ever so carefully, revealing what appeared to be a wall safe.
.
As Henry began to turn the dial, after the fifth number a hidden door in the wall opened, he then spun the dial and restored the picture to its proper place, and they all climbed a set of winding stairs down toward the basement, where the Conference Room was already prepared.  The room was well furnished, having a large oblong table in the center, a Coffee Bar off to one side, which contained all the amenities, such as sink, running water, storage space as well as a modest size refrigerator.  Off to either side of the Coffee Bar were a Ladies and a Men’s Room respectively!  Additionally there were several other rooms interconnecting with the main Conference Room, which were also classified.
.
The conference table, whether on purpose or by happen-chance, seated 13, 6 on either side, with the end toward the stair case left vacant; Governor Marshall took his place at the end of the table, while the ladies gathered around the Coffee Bar so as to make a fresh pot of Coffee.  The four men took their seats and began to open the discussion; once the coffee had been served the ladies joined the men.  Everyone looked at Henry their old friend, save for Gunny Wayne Iverson, who appeared to be a wee bit puzzled by all the mystery.  Henry glanced about the table, and began to speak; we often humorously refer to ourselves the ‘Knights of the Round Table’ a very exclusive club, you can be sure.
.
There are as you can all see, thirteen chairs about this table, and before I am finish, I fully intend that 13 very special Governors will fill these seats, the Governors representing the, and I will say those heretofore unsaid words, the States of the Confederacy.  Gunny Iverson seemed to gasp for a moment, and noticeably so, then being the ‘Battle Hardened Marine’ that he was, quickly composed himself.  I know each and every one of you, and yes, I have investigated all of you, and I know that you have considered this particular option.  As you are aware, the Federals who were liberal enough already, have turned completely socialist, so our options for restoring our unalienable rights are limited.
.
Governor William McRae of Mississippi is by nature a skeptic, so he decided to add his two cents; “Henry, since you have all this figure out, you must know that we will be missed back in our home states.  Someone is going to wander where the Governor got off too!  Alison the wife of Master Gunnery Sergeant Wayne Iverson glanced at her husband with that certain look in her eyes, and he knew precisely what she was thinking.  “Allow me to answer Governor McRae, if I might; no one is going to miss any Governor who has travels here for this ‘Round Table’ Conference.  Governor Sterling Wilcox of Georgia looked hard at the Sergeant; “And why not, if we are gone, they are sure to miss us!”
.
Sheryl the wife of Governor McRae who was even then pouring herself a refill of coffee, just had to know; “And how do you figure to make that possible Sergeant, I’ve got to here this.”  Gunny Iverson glanced at his wife Alison who gave no open verbal response, but simply nodded here head in the positive, then put his elbows on the table.  He waved his hands around a wee bit, and as everyone gazed at the motions he was making, they had a bit of bewilderment in their face.  His right hand down to the wrist simply disappeared, and everyone but Alison gasp in awe!  After a few moments he waved his hands around again, and his right hand reappeared, like unto his left hand.
.
The Sergeant looked about at everyone seated about the table, “now what did ya’ll see, he ask?”  Most of them simply continued to gaze at his hands, but Henry did manage utter a few words; “Tell them Sergeant, tell them how it is done and what it has to do with our mission.”  The Sergeant gave a small grin and began his explanation; “Each of you see what your mind told you to see, all I needed do is distract you then perform my trick, you believe my right hand disappeared because you were distracted.  In truth is, I am double jointed, and while you were focusing on my left hand, I folded my right hand under and you believed my hand had disappeared, when in fact it was there all the time.
.
Governors, you will not be missed back home because I helped create a diversion; Governor McRae, the news media was expecting you and your wife to be returning from your recent trip to Richmond, when in fact you were both leaving Richmond on your way here to Montgomery.”  Henry gave a big smile and asked; “go ahead Sergeant tell them how you pulled it off.”  The Gunny glanced at Governor Marshall as he began to explain!  “One of my jobs in the Marines was camouflage, which included making our men seem to disappear as much as possible, even with modern camouflage uniforms, that is nigh impossible to do.
.
I studied past efforts going back as far as time permitted, then I took a look at the performances by famous Magicians, I decided to play on the expectations of the media as well as the people.   An individual got off the plain in Jackson alright, he being a man with a similar profile as Governor McRae, it was a cloudy and misty morning, a waiting black staff car approached the exit ramp, and a man, presumed to be the Governor, got off the airplane, entered the waiting car and it drove off quickly.  As you know Governor McRae your staff car has shaded windows for safety sake; as of this moment, you are thought to be at the Governors Mansion in Jackson.
.
The same is true in the case of Governor Wilcox as well as the wives of he other Governors; the mass media was not told anything either way, thus they simply assumed their respective Governors, and the Governors wives, were returning from a State business trip.  Your job as best I understand it is to build a Civil Structure and mine is to build a Security Force, one, which no one knows exists, that is until the time comes.  Governor Henry Marshall stood to his feet, paced for a little while, then addressed those seated at the table; “Unlike the War for Confederate Independence, we are not fighting the Union Army, but the unexpected, thus we need to be prepared for whatever may come our way.
.
Should the danger come from our Southern Borders, which the Federals refused to secure or some other way, we can no longer depend upon the Bureaucrats, the safety of our citizens and families, is at stake.  We must also deal with the likes of the A.C.L.U., the politically correct, the environmentalists and others, which have been all too successful at suppressing our liberties; need I say more?  We’ve been pushed around like captives in our own homeland; now the time has come to push back.  Gunny Iverson has been assigned to build a Security Force capable of defending us against whomever, us Governors will create a Civil Structure capable of negotiating from a position of strength.
.
The ladies will be our intelligence network, and if you other three ladies are anything like my own wife Julia, the odds of success stands in our favor.  Now if there are no further questions, we should adjourn, I will contact you at a later date, under the topic of an Economic Conference!  Are there any questions?”  Everyone present in the room looked at each other, the only response was a sake of their heads in the negative, so the Alabama Governor dismissed the meeting, the eight members gathered in a couple of smaller groups and began to discuss amongst themselves, what had just transpired.
.
The Master Gunnery Sergeant got up from the table and walked over toward the far end of the Coffee Bar, the furthest distance from the stairway, which lead up toward Governor Marshall’s Office.  The Governor seeing the Gunny was in deep thought, walked over so as to speak with him; “Tell me Master Gunny how did you manage to arrange all this security, in advance of our first meeting?”  The Gunny came to himself and glanced at the Governor; “Your wife and Secretary are better at guarding your back then you may realize.  They figured out your plan weeks ago, and gave me a call, knowing from past years that our fathers were old war buddies.
.
Tell me something Governor if you will, it is obvious that you intend on resurrecting the Confederacy, yet there is no national leader, unless you intend on being that person yourself.  You surely must know, that for a national movement to be successful, there must be a dynamic and charismatic leader at the helm.”  Governor Marshall smiled as he replied; “While you have a reputation as being a battle hardened Marine, you are also known to be a devout Christian.  You are familiar with ‘The Gospel Tabernacle’ here in town, are you not Gunny?”  Indeed I am, they are on television every weekend, and I’ve visited the Church on several occasions.
.
Gunny, remember the coming date of Sunday 28 July this year, and be at The Gospel Tabernacle for the 11:00 Service, you will find the answer to your question, as to national leadership.  A short while later everyone began to climb the stairs and file out of the basement Conference Room, the Governor as well as the Alabama First Lady gave everyone a parting good-by, and a hand shake as they departed.  The six other members of the Round Table Conference went their own way, and slowly began to carryout Governor Henry Marshall’s plan.  Resulting in their numbers slowly beginning to grow, by Monday 24 June there were indeed 13 Governors seated at the Conference Table.
.
Master Gunnery Sergeant Wayne Iverson with the help of his wife Alison completed their first organized Security Force, under the titled of The Gideon Battalion, which managed to be trained, uniformed and equipped in time for their first public debut on Thursday 4 July.  Little did anyone know this 300 man Precision Drill Team, was a well-orchestrated public distraction!  Governor Marshall merely assumed the Gunnery Sergeant had recruited their numbers from among his Marine and Army Buddies, given their excellent performance.  But in any case the pieces began to fall into place, even as the congregants began to file into the sanctuary of the giant Gospel Tabernacle of Montgomery.
.
My wife Alice and I had never attended such a large Church, since ours has a congregation, which has never risen above 250 in attendance, so we were a little bewildered.  Upon entering the large double doors we were faced with a number of Users, which escort people down one of the four isles to suitable seating.  We were shown seats in the left middle isle about a third of the way from the front, so we felt we could see relatively clear, anyone coming to the podium, that might possibly be the man of whom we sought.  We had arrived approximately 20 minutes before the start of the morning services, so by the time we had settled into our seats, the time was near at hand.
.
The organist began to play and the service was now underway!  After a few moments a gentleman enter from right side of the platform and positioned himself in front of a large Choir, which began to sing.  Then he stepped to the podium and invited the congregation to join in singing from a song sheet, which could be found at the back of each pew.  We were approximately 15 minutes into the service when the Pastor came to the podium gave a few opening words and made several announcements.  He then introduced a man he said was a very special guest speaker, and onto the platform came the man the world would come to know as Brian Augustus Tappan.
.
I rubbed my eyes very slightly, so as to assure myself as to what I was seeing, it was the same man I saw in my dream, a man in his late forties or early fifties.  He has sandy hair, which is slightly graying, and he stood at about 5 feet 10 inches in height!  There was one certainty in all this, this service was televised so the entire world could see and hear this man as he spoke.  He was not a slick talker like some politicians we have seen in commercials, but he was effective, and he was obviously an expert in a number of fields, based upon subject matter of his speech.  And one must consider the effect he was having on the congregation, this man had charisma such as few men possess!
.
As the service came to an end and the Pastor closed in prayer, the congregation began to file out of the Sanctuary!  Once my wife Alice and I had exited through the huge double doors we saw the man we had just heard and seen behind the podium, standing just outside.  We passed by the Pastor who shook our hands; then we approach close to this man, who turn to us and began to speak.  “Excuse me Sir, you are Mr. George McCullum, are you not?  We have business to discuss, concerning Confederate Cause in general, and your Confederate Legion in particular.”  As he was speaking we shook hands, and discussed a suitable date and time to meet at my home in Florida!
.
The next morning my wife and I left Montgomery on our way heading south toward our home, as we did so we knew of a certainty, The Prophetic Countdown was indeed unfolding before our eyes.  The Leader Among Us had finally shown his hand, and I for one looked forward to the day when we could sit down in the comfort of our own home, and speak to this man.  My lifelong interest in all this has been, that I might live to see the liberation and restoration of the Confederate States of America.  Then and then only, will my work be complete, for “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, and I have kept the faith:” {II Timothy 4:7}.

We feel that our cause is just and holy; we protest solemnly in the face of mankind that we desire peace at any sacrifice save that of honor and independence; we ask no conquest, no aggrandizement, no concession of any kind from the States with which we were lately confederated; all we ask is to be let alone; that those who never held power over us shall not now attempt our subjugation by arms." --- President Jefferson Davis - 29 April 1861
