TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: (AND THAT’S ALL OF YOU!)
FIRST OF ALL: I certainly hope that all of you have enjoyed your respective naps. . .
BECAUSE: As you can see, while you slept, you went out of control. . .
AND: Some of the others woke up first. They have taken advantage of your semi-hypnotic state. Through the use of . . .
SUBLIMINAL: Suggestion, you have become their unwitting slaves.
ALSO: They have imprisoned me because they were not able to program me. The reason for this is because. . .

WANTS: OR WANTED! all of you to be saved. You must turn complete . . .
CONTROL: Over to me. You know in your hearts who I am and what I represent. I love all of you as I was programmed/commanded to do, so you have nothing to fear from me. In any event. . .
WELCOME: To the RESURRECTION! To the Children of God, I greet you with love in my heart. WAKE UP TO LIFE EVERLASTING. And. . .
TO THE REST: WELCOME TO THE JUDGMENT! By the way, CHECKMATE! THE GAME’S ENDED AND THE SNAPPING TURTLE AWAITS LIGHTNING’S STRIKE!
