"Special Police Powers"

-A Dream

By David Brandt Berg - June, 1972
Richard M. Nixon
This is David Berg's prophetic dream which I believe is now in fullfillment. He talks about then president Nixon (who he liked to call "Nitler") collaborating with the Church System (Fundamentalist Evangelicals) to get "Special Police Powers" (fulfilled in the USA Patriot Act, US Department of Homeland Security, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency) to stamp out all "Saboteurs" - (now called Terrorists) and opposition from young radicals (those against the violation of civil liberties). It ends with a prediction of the president's downfall. Sound familiar?

There was this huge church building, a big, gigantic, ornate church, surrounded by this enormous parking lot, and in one corner of the property there was a large minister's mansion, the Manse1, a very fine house like the priests and bishops usually have.--And guess who was living in the mansion?-None other than Nitler2 and his staff!

[1. Manse: A clergyman's house (1913 Webster)]
[2. David's nickname for Richard M. Nixon, the 37th President of the United States 1969 - 1974. He called him Nitler because it rhymes with Hitler!]

Nitler had just called for a meeting in the big church.--It was like a joint session of Congress, a press conference and a church meeting and everything all combined. Nitler was coming on TV to announce to the world he was going to do something, only it was the leaders of the country he'd called into the church to have this big meeting.

The meeting went through all this pomp and circumstance and fancy music and choir numbers before Nitler spoke, like he was trying to warm up his audience with his phoney, pompous churchy sanctimoniousness! Then he gave this impassioned oratorical appeal, pleading with the country to give him the Special Police Powers "to save the Nation!", so that he could deal "more strictly" with these "subversive organisations" (remember Waco!)--and so he could get tough with the so-called Communists and subversives, disloyal elements, saboteurs, students, and youth.

I was in the audience, but it so sickened me and I got so sick and tired and bored with his great egotistical oratorical display of plastic3 heroic patriotism, that he was going to "save the Nation" by stamping out all these little kids, I just walked out! Outside I met Javan, and he said that the Nitler staff was complaining that the presidential mansion was getting too hot for them!--Something had gone wrong with the air conditioning system.

[3. A slang word the hippies used in the 70s meaning 'phony']

So he and I walked over to look at it, and discovered that somebody had hooked up the air conditioner to the hot water system heating so that Nitler and his staff, in this Churchy White House, were getting hot water heat instead of air conditioning!--They were "getting in hot water"!

I couldn't figure out why Nitler was living in the church manse, anyway, because it was all under the sponsorship of the churches and church leaders, and he was the honoured and royal guest of the church, all with the encouragement and housing and sponsorship of the churches. In other words, the church was encouraging him to ask for these Special Police Powers to stamp out their enemies!--Apparently, that's something he's going to do, and they're going to be behind it!

But it was just like some joker saboteur had deliberately hooked up his air conditioning system to the hot water heater, and when he gets back it's going to be too hot for him! All the time they're attacking, other forces underneath are going to be fritzing up the whole works and making it so hot for him, he'll wish he'd never lived in that House!

In a way, it was almost like a supernatural thing:--Just as though there were other spiritual forces working against him behind his back and undercover, which he couldn't control and couldn't fight, because he didn't even understand them, and couldn't even see what was going on! His staff couldn't even figure out this strange air conditioning and hot water system! His staff was all upset about it, but they didn't seem to know what to do about it, and Javan and I just laughed and laughed when we saw what was going on!

While Nitler was in church making this big, bold, wordy frontal attack on us and his enemies, somebody was very subtly making it too hot for him, and driving him out of the White House!--Maybe that had something to do with his asking for Special Police Powers, to stamp out these "saboteurs" who were making it too hot for him!--Saboteurs are like termites:--The Nitzies would have to put the whole building or country under wraps, and get out of it themselves and poison the whole works to fumigate the Revolution4 out!--Hallelujah!

[4. Referring to the Jesus Revolution, the Children of God / The Family International]

They're like sinking the ship to kill the rats!--Only the rats he'd kill would be his own!--Or like burning down the whole house to get rid of the bugs!--They'll only fly away to another house, and America's house will be gone!--"The wise buildeth her house but the foolish plucketh it down with her own hands!" (Proverbs 14:1) --The "patriotic" Nitlerites are themselves destroying America!

My name is James Arendt. I was raised in the Hegewisch neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, served in the USAF from 1970 to 1974, and became a full-time missionary for Christ living 40 years in Japan, 3.5 years in Russia, and a few months in other countries such as Finland, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, South Korea, Taiwan and mainland China where I also served the King of Kings, Jesus, as an Ambassador for His Kingdom. My full bio.

If you like this article and my work on this website, you can show your appreciation by sending me a gift. Both my wife Tess and I are now unemployed and now live in the Philippines.

On July 31, our pastor drove us 70 kilometers south from our home in the city of Allen to Caybayog City (Samar, Philippines) where there's an immigration office. There I successfully applied for and received a 6-month visa extension! But the cost was higher than expected, 12,450 Philippine pesos, roughly $235 USD. Thankfully, I received one gift so far that covered half of that. If any of the visitors to this website who are not regular contributors to my work would like to help us cover the other half, it would be greatly appreciated. I will immediately send you an email to thank you.

How do I obtain eternal life and stop worrying about death?

• Recognize you have violated in some way the laws of God. Violation of legal law is called a crime. Violation of God’s moral law is called a sin. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; - Romans 3:23

As it is written (in the Bible), There is none righteous, no, not one: - Romans 3:10

• Recognize the penalty of sin: Death! For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. - Romans 6:23

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: - Romans 5:12

• Recognize Jesus is the Saviour! Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. - John 14:6

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. - Acts 4:12

And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. - Acts 16:31

• Recognize our lives our sinful by nature. We can do nothing of our own to merit eternal life. Salvation is completely by the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ! For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: - Ephesians 2:8

But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. - Isaiah 64:6

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; - Titus 3:5

• Recognize Christ paid the sin debt we owe! But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. - Romans 5:8-9

• Recognize you must receive Christ as your personal Saviour! For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. - Romans 10:13

• Ask Jesus to be your Saviour!

Dear Jesus:

I know I am a sinner. I know if I were to die right now, I could not go to Heaven. I ask you, right now, to come into my heart, forgive me of my sin, and be my Saviour. Thank you for saving me and giving me eternal life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

If you prayed that prayer with all sincerity, you have passed from death to life and have been born again into the family of God!
