Y2K (The Year 2000 Computer Fear) -- What WAS it? -- an immature believes conspiracy theory

I wrote this article in August 1998, more than a year before the Year 2000 when computers were supposed to crash

Technically the article is accurate insofar as the claimed problem was NOWHERE near what it was made out to be -- as was proven by what happened in practice

Insofar as the article postulated "mark of the beast" and other scary Satanic plots by secret societies, it was proven to be false

Yes, the secret societies exist and Yes there are plots but they are NOT the issues that we as believers should be concerning ourselves with

Our responsibility is to seek to become friends of the Almighty

Father has asked me to add this to the website on the basis that it may be of value to someone

A significant part of my professional time during my career as an engineer specializing in the effective application of computer systems in support of business strategy has been taken up with seeking to understand "The Real Issues in Information Technology". As a consequence of this, I have spoken at over fifty conferences internationally and was recently listed in the Marquis "Who's Who in Science and Engineering" and subsequently approached for listing in "Who's Who in the World" for 1999.

Throughout my professional career, which I started by obtaining an honours degree in Civil Engineering, I have been actively involved with computers. In the early eighties I studied a number of University Text's on software design and programming and wrote my own computer software. Subsequently I became involved in the effective application of computers in business. As time progressed I became increasingly aware of the extent to which computers failed to meet managements expectations and became more involved in the diagnosis and rectification of these failures and at the same time became more involved in the development and implementation of business strategy. This knowledge and experience gave rise to the publications and conference appearances referred to above.

Following a major life experience which caused me to return to The Lord Jesus Christ having literally stared death in the face, I have been seeking to serve Him with all my heart, with all my soul, with all my strength and particularly with ALL MY MIND. As I have sought to know Him more and to serve Him better, I have increasingly come to know of other developments in the world which are of greater spiritual significance than that which is seen. I have also sought to understand the things of God in a way that will enable me to answer the questions of so-called intellectuals, those with great academic achievement, in order to bring them to a saving knowledge of The Lord Jesus Christ.

At the same time, I have increasingly become aware of the activities of secret societies and other Satanic agencies in business, government and elsewhere and come to know something about the "New Age" and the "New World Order".

For several years now I have been puzzled by the hype over the year 2000 or "Y2K" as it is now commonly referred to. I was unable to identify very many REAL technical reasons why it should be such a problem. I am still unable to identify many REAL reasons. Accordingly, in this document I seek to address certain issues which I hope will assist Christians to better understand what the Y2K debate is really about and therefore to assist them to better prepare for the year 2000. I will also endeavour to offer Christian business people some suggestions on how to deal with the "threat" which I feel confident will work for many of them.




This document is not intended to be an authoritative reference work. It is intended to be, in a sense, a conversation with the reader, sharing thoughts and experiences as they come to mind rather than presenting some form of structured management document or formal teaching.

For this reason, thoughts have been recorded largely as they occur. It is almost certain that what is an important focus in my experience is not necessarily important in yours and vice versa and that the order of importance will also differ.

It is also not presented as a teaching with copious scripture references or technical references. Were I to have done that, this document would be many times longer and would not provide, as I currently hope it does, a relatively concise report of a diversity of sometimes seemingly unconnected thoughts all of which, I believe, have some bearing on understanding what is necessary to formulate an approach to the Y2K situation.

By virtue of the objectives set out above, there will never be enough information in this document to answer all your questions, that is not the intention. Jesus, through His Holy Spirit is the only teacher that you can truly rely on. As you identify passages that awaken your interest or are quickened to your attention, pray about them.

In faith, trust God to reveal to you what YOU need to know through His Word, through books, teaching tapes, videos, TV and Radio Programmes, teaching at churches and conferences that he may lead you to, prophets, teachers and other believers that He may bring across your path. Be diligent to seek the truth. Be constantly in His Word and in fellowship with other believers. Be always alert for His leading to buy a book or tape, listen to a radio programme, visit a church, attend a conference, help or talk to a stranger or do anything else contrary to your routine that will lead you to a source of knowledge.

Remember that only God knows your thoughts so don't keep talking about what He is showing you and, as far as possible, NEVER tell anyone your questions. Satan's cohorts (demons and angels) infest the atmosphere and those around you and are constantly listening for useful information to use against you. Pray silently within your heart, believing in Faith that He hears you and that He will answer your questions. If the answer rattles your paradigm and does not seem as though it could possibly be of God, ask Him in faith for confirmation. He loves you and He wants to prepare you for what lies ahead. He has great patience and He recognizes our difficulty in hearing and believing Him. If you walk in faith without doubting HE WILL LEAD YOU TO THE TRUTH YOU NEED TO BE APPROPRIATELY PREPARED.

Be prepared for a challenging and exciting ride! Recognize that God is no respecter of persons and no respecter of our traditions and doctrines. Expect Him to show you things that you will have great difficulty accepting. Expect Him to require you to do things and deal with things which are sometimes VERY challenging and uncomfortable.

If you truly want to serve HIM and you truly want to walk in His will and His blessings, then I encourage you to take up the challenge. By faith, hold onto your hat and enjoy the ride and His blessings!


God Bless You

This document is not intended to be a rigorous teaching, it is intended to open up a treasure chest of topics for you to PRAY and SEEK GOD about in order to determine what is applicable to your life TODAY in order to redefine your paradigm of the "Year 2000 Problem", effective application of computers in business and business management in general. Different parts will apply at different times. Some may never apply. Some you may revisit again and again. Others may not be covered in this document. As you learn to trust God to lead you into the truth you need day by day, you will find that the walk becomes spiritually easier although it may become more demanding in terms of what you can see in the natural. Ultimately, it is all part of learning to be Spirit Led that you may one day justly claim to be a true Son of God (Romans 8:14).

The following prayer is offered to assist you get started, trust God to lead you in prayer day by day. Pray it IN FAITH WITHOUT DOUBTING AND HE WILL ANSWER YOU:

Father God, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I thank you that you know the parts of this document that apply to me and that are correct for me. I thank you that, as I start to read, you will quicken to my spirit that which is immediately relevant and that you will conceal from me that which is chaff or of no relevance right now.

I thank you that, as you open this document to me, you will teach me what to pray and you will give me utterance in my spirit in order that I may pray your will over my life and those that you have given me to lead.

I thank you that, as I bring sections, paragraphs, concepts and thoughts before you and lay my questions at your Holy throne, you will answer me.

I ask you, in the name of Jesus, to speak to me through Your Word, to lead me to the passages that apply to me and that will answer my questions. I thank you that Your Word contains all the answers that I will ever need to live my life according to your will and to achieve the impact that you have purposed for me at this time.

I thank you that you will speak to me through books, conferences, teaching tapes and videos, fellow business people, consultants, apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and preachers, teachers and other people whom you will bring across my path. I thank you that you will lead me wherever I need to go to receive the answers to my questions and that your Holy Spirit is with me always to lead me into ALL TRUTH.

Help me Father to hear your voice clearly and close my ears and eyes to all that is not of you.

Satan, I bind you and your cohorts from blinding or confusing me in receiving anything that God has provided for me in this document. In Jesus Name.

I thank you Father that your Angels are encamped around me to protect me and to keep the enemy from interfering in my studies and I ask you to cover me, my family and all that I own, with the Blood of Jesus from the top of our heads to the soles of our feet.

I thank you Father that Your Word states that as a born again believer, I have the Mind of Christ. I thank you for leading me to victory.

In Jesus Name

An Analysis of Technical and Spiritual Factors Behind


"The Year 2000"












The try.


I am a Civil Engineer and Analyst by training with strong grounding in Mathematics, Science and applied problem solving. God has blessed me with a mind that constantly seeks to understand the underlying fundamentals of any situation whether physical or spiritual. I have learnt to use the gifts that I have developed in dealing with physical problems to dealing with spiritual issues as well.

Having served the Lord in the Anglican Church in my youth, turned away because of religion and other factors in my early twenties and been radically saved from the very brink of death (literally) in my late thirties, I found myself faced with a major intellectual problem in accepting that the Bible as the "Living Word of God". Having heard the voice of God and having experienced the presence and power of God enough to have complete certainty that He was real, by faith I chose to accept the Bible as the Word of God and embarked on a voyage of discovery, sometimes into uncharted or little known Spiritual waters.

After obtaining my Bachelors degree in Civil Engineering in 1976 I went on to undertake research towards my PhD. Having accumulated thousands of pages of laboratory results I found that the mainframe computer at the University where I was studying was totally overloaded and did not even have the storage available for one page of data. Accordingly, I purchased one of the first desk top personal computers in the days of the Apple II, CP/M (Control Program for Microcomputers) and similar technologies now largely forgotten. This was before the advent of the IBM PC XT. I rapidly discovered that getting the computer to do what the salesman had told me it could do was not a trivial matter and ended up studying a range of prescribed computer science text books in order to teach myself to write the computer software that I required. In the process the distributor of my computer went out of business and shortly afterwards the manufacturer in the United States went out of business. I also discovered that my "industry standard" computer did not conform to the standards as claimed. As a consequence, I was forced to learn a significant amount about hardware and communications and developed a network of contacts around the world with people who could assist me to solve my problems. Eventually, after a number of years I completed by PhD and received a major National award for it.

At the same time, I worked for my father's international Gold Share investment consultancy for four years and gained considerable exposure to the international stock and commodity markets and gained some insight into the global economy, travelling overseas a number of times as we consulted to major Swiss Banks, London Stock Brokers and other major players in the Gold investment market.

Subsequently, I returned to Civil Engineering in the field of Mining Geotechnics and over a period of four years was involved in a number of projects involving the use of computers in Ore Body Modelling, Mine Design, Slope Stability analysis and probabilistic risk management. I also managed the transition of the company I was with from a mini-computer system to one of the first Novell PC networks in Johannesburg and designed and project managed the development of a fully integrated suite of database software to provide comprehensive operational and financial management information and transaction processing for the business. I also managed the introduction of what subsequently came to be called "end user computing", putting a PC on every users desk and addressing the relevant training and support needs.

In 1989 I left my employer and started consulting on my own as a "Computerization Consultant", assisting clients to undertake needs analyses, specifying systems and project managing and contract managing the implementation. For four years I was involved in this type of consulting, primarily with regard to integrated operational, financial and management information systems for medium to large professional service companies using a combination of custom written software and off-the-shelf packages. Repeatedly I encountered non-technical reasons why projects did not initially meet expectations and started to publish on this topic.

In 1994 I started a multi-disciplinary company which included my I.T. consulting capability merged with a number of small computer software development companies. For the next four years we developed large integrated systems as well as smaller systems and executive information systems. I continued to publish widely on the factors giving rise to failure and to identify more and more factors giving rise to failure. Over time we developed techniques to address and overcome these factors. At the same time, as an avowedly Christian company, with a cross in our logo and "Jesus Christ is Lord" on the bottom of our letterhead, we started to encounter situations in our business environment which could only be understood spiritually. In May 1997, God told me to close down the business and took me through a serious of short assignments from which I gained certain insights into what was going on behind the scenes which would otherwise never have come to my attention.

Earlier this year I was led to start writing a series of "discourses" on various topics, of which this is the fourth.

This discourse came to the fore in the space of a few days as a series of incidents brought years of knowledge and experience into sharp focus in what I believe to be a revelation of what is ACTUALLY going on behind the scenes with regard to Y2K. The first release of this document will be incomplete because of the urgency that I sense and also because I realize that there is still much to learn which you, the reader, may be able to help me with.

I do not present any of what I have written above as a boast. My intention is simply to position and contextualize what I am about to write with a view to appealing to you, THE READER, to consider the possibility that there may be a paradigm in your spiritual walk and business experience that is outside the realms of what you have previously considered to be the only valid understanding and interpretation. In doing this, I will endeavour to avoid criticising what others believe, my hope is that I will build on truths that others have in order to draw out more of the truth as we all sincerely seek to draw closer to God, to be more like Jesus and to seek ALL TRUTH.


If I offend you, I ask you to forgive me, that is not my intention, I fully realize that, if you are offended you will have difficulty changing your paradigm and my objective is to lay a foundation that I believe will assist the reader to reassess certain issues that may be having a profound influence in their lives. Please set aside anything that offends you and pray over it as you seek to extract what may be wheat and not chaff for you in this document.

This draft of this document, has been produced specifically to be read by people with whom I am in personal contact although it is my expectation that, in time, it will be published more widely and more formally, under the heading of "End Time Issues". At this stage, in particular, I hope to obtain comment, insight and testimonies from as many readers as possible with a view to presenting as comprehensive a picture as possible as I have no doubt that there are others whose experience differs drastically from my own who will place different emphasis on various aspects and will have revelation in different areas. Having said this, I must stress that this document in no way claims to be comprehensive, you may have unique issues and challenges in your life that no person other than the Holy Spirit of the Living God can assist you with, in all things LOOK TO JESUS NOT to men.

At this stage, I do not intend to present endless scripture and technical references. Right now I am not seeking to hard sell you anything, I am seeking to raise some issues for consideration and hopefully discussion leading to prayerful action in the expectation that where something applies to your particular situation, The Holy Spirit will quicken this to your attention and show you how to respond.

I look forward to receiving your comments and to discussing what follows with you.


At the time of writing, there are less than seventeen months to 1 January 2000 and there is nothing that anyone can do to delay the deadline.

Increasingly, business people and computer users generally are seeking to assess the extent of "the problem" and how to overcome it. Various reports indicate that auditors may qualify financial statements if companies have not solved the Y2K problem and there are suggestions of banks refusing finance to companies who cannot supply a certificate demonstrating a clean bill of health. Numerous other horror projections of aircraft falling out of the sky, etc are being reported. It is suggested that numerous businesses and even banks could go out of business. There is great uncertainty and yet many people do not have a clear idea as to exactly what they must do. The whole thing seems scary but to a point, perhaps? unreal.

The question has to be posed : "Is Y2K really such a problem?"

In this document I will endeavour to present information which I consider to be critical with a view to answering the question from the point of view of:

Is the Y2K problem







In the sections that follow I will discuss some factors behind my interpretation of the situation and seek to assist you to draw your own interpretation and conclusions. These sections are based on limited observation of material in various books and articles to do with the Y2K phenomenon.


Perhaps the first question that needs to be addressed in understanding the year 2000 is the question of whether 2000 has some deep spiritual significance which means that our normal paradigm of understanding must be set aside. The answer simply is no. In biblical terms the year 2000 is NOT the year 2000 it is actually the year 2004 and 1996 was actually the year 2000. In biblical terms we are ALREADY in the new millennium.

Marvyn Byers in the second edition of his book "The Final Victory : The Year 2000" published by Treasure House as an imprint of Destiny Image, P O Box 310, Shippensburg, PA 17257, USA in 1994 presents a robust argument on this issue in appendix D, page 299 and chapter 29, page 169.

Jesus was born during the reign of Herod who, according to Josephus, died just before the Feast of Passover and a few days after a complete lunar eclipse. The eclipse took place on the night of March 13 of 4 BC. Accordingly, Jesus has to have been born before March of 4 BC. Other information is presented to the effect that Jesus was born during either 5 BC or 4 BC and it is noted that this interpretation is supported by other knowledgeable history books, encyclopedias and studies which confirm the timing of Jesus's birth as taking place in this period.

There is therefore no scriptural reason for 1 January 2000 of our current calendar to have any particular significance.

Referring again to Byers, our current, calendar was devised by Pope Gregory XIII and introduced in the year 1582 at a time when precise dating of events was, at best problematic. It is therefore easy to understand how an error of a few years could occur. Insofar as the year number is simply a counter for human consumption whether the year 2000 is labelled 2000 or any other number is of little significance if it has no scriptural significance.


Clearly, even if the year 2000 is not spiritually significant, 1 January, coming a week after Christmas, the traditional time of Jesus birth, could have significance. Referring again to Byers, we discover that there is strong scriptural evidence that Jesus was born during the Feast of Tabernacles which is in September or October each year. There is strong scriptural evidence that Jesus would NOT have been born around December.

We can therefore almost completely discount the possibility that 1 January 2000 has any direct scriptural significance and therefore that anything that happens or is projected to happen on 1 January 2000 will be the result of the actions of man, possibly assisted by the "God of this world" Satan.


Referring again to Byers, there does, however, appear to be strong grounds to believe that something of great spiritual and biblical significance could happen at Passover (Easter) 2000.

There would therefore seem to be good grounds for the enemy to seek to cause great instability and great falling away of believers before Easter 2000!


At this point, it must be stressed that I am not stating that there is not a Y2K problem.

The problem is real but the real questions are

1. HOW GREAT is the problem?

2. How does one deal with it?

3. Could it have been avoided and, if so, why was it not avoided?

I will seek to answer these questions based on my own experience with computers over more than twenty years in the sections that follow.


According to reports, the Y2K problem has a number of distinct components:

1. Computer software which makes use of dates for calculating interest, debtors and creditors ageing, pensions and other calculations which are based on elapsed time calculated using the year number as a counter of years. Suggestions of organizations finding that stock control systems cease to work, that pension calculations become nonsense and other issues are raised in order to indicate the level of disruption that faulty computer and software could cause to businesses.

2. Computer software which displays the date for the convenience of users and readers of output and for operators making entries to computers. For example, the date - time stamp attached to all files stored on a computer disk. There is some implication in talk about Y2K that this will have major implications for a wide variety of computer users.

3. Allegedly microprocessors and other electronic circuitry in which the year of manufacture or other date related information is encoded onto the chip and which supposedly will cease working, malfunction or "melt-down" at one minute past midnight on 1 January 2000. Examples offered include critical hospital equipment and elevators in buildings ceasing to work, aircraft dropping out of the sky and numerous other alarming suggestions.

All the above sounds alarming, particularly references to "melt-downs" and aircraft falling out of the sky, what is the basis of these fears and are they justified.


Before the more detailed technical issues are addressed, the question must be posed "Can statements made by I.T. guru's be regarded as reliable"?

In considering this question consider that the I.T. industry is probably the most under regulated and unstructured industry in the world today. In other professional disciplines, such as engineering, high levels of educational qualification and apprenticeship are required before a person can practice unsupervised. Serious disciplinary sanctions are enforced by professional controlling bodies which seek to regulate standards and ensure that buildings do not fall down and trains do not crash. Failure of an engineering system, including computer hardware, is a relatively uncommon event, so much so that it makes headline news.

No such comparable professional certification, let alone professional regulation exists in the computer industry, particularly in the computer software industry. Organizations like Microsoft proclaim "standards" like Windows and within months change and break the standards. There is no meaningful protest or objection form consumers who, locked into marketing hype chase the latest version of products they do not have any business case to upgrade in order to avoid being left behind with "outdated and incompatible software". There is no sound technical reason for this incompatibility.

I.T. people are also prone to using terms from the real world with scant regard for their true meaning. In the process, they disregard the fact that the words mean something else to other people. In broad terms, I have to suggest that it is unlikely that any computer chip will physically "melt down" on 1 January 2000. At worst, it will stop working, it might get into a closed loop that it cannot get out of. As best I can determine, the only way that a chip could physically self destruct at that point would be if it had been pre-programmed to do just that and the necessary energy sources and circuitry do cause such self-destruction had been carefully designed and tested in order to ensure that this one off behaviour would occur.


Consider also that statistics indicate that over 70% of corporations are dissatisfied with their I.T. investment and do not believe that they are getting value for money and that 70% of I.T. projects fail to reach completion. Statistics indicate that approximately 70% of all money spent on computers and computer related matters in the history of computers has been totally wasted and scrapped without achieving ANYTHING that was envisaged when the investment was first mooted. Can an industry with such a shocking record of under delivery be regarded as a reliable barometer of it's likely future performance?

My own experience over many years has shown me that people involved with computers very seldom understand "The Real Issues" with regard to the practical and profitable application of computers in business. They tend to get carried with "features" and "functionality" at the expense of solving the business problem. As a result, many, if not most I.T. decisions are based more on technology "nice to haves" than on real issues. Accordingly, much of what I.T. people regard as vital is, in fact, irrelevant. This leads me to conclude that a fair amount of the hype around year 2000 falls into this category. For example, if your cellphone cannot display the year correctly, does it affect your ability to use the phone? If your word processing software or spreadsheet cannot automatically display the year correctly, does it materially impact on your document? At worst in a spreadsheet you can apply a simple off-set type adjustment in order to get around the problem.


Before we go much further, we need to understand why the year is important to us.

Basically, the year number if just a counter. It counts the number of years since some arbitrary and, as we have seen in section 1..7, incorrectly determined base date. In terms of the currently accepted Jewish calendar, the year 2000 is the year 5760-5761 although according to Byers interpretation it could conceivably actually be 6004. In terms of our day to day life, the exact number if insignificant, it is the existence of a universally understood standard that matters. The fact that every nation on earth at the very least recognizes that the year which we label 2000 is labelled 2000 is only important insofar as it enables all nations to know the year that is being talked about.

If one person talked about 2000 and another 5761 we would find it confusing. If on one day I entered a date on a computer as being in 2000 and on another occasion entered the same date as being 5761 any other user of that data would be confused and the computer would make some serious computation errors in computing any calculation which compared the dates of the two entries. The problem would not be with the computer but with my failure to apply a consistent standard.

Thus the year 2000 is just a numeric counter or label that has been applied to all data relating to dates.

Since the year 2000 is such an arbitrary number, there is no real reason why it cannot be changed other than the amount of disruption that it would cause and the years that it would take everyone to get used to calling 2000 some other number. However, this results only from the difficulty of getting billions of people around the world to change a standard that they have come to regard as inviolate.

However, this does not stop your business from deciding to introduce a new local standard in order to minimize the impact of the Y2K problem. If you chose to set your computers back to 1 January 1990 or 1 January 1988 (if you have a need to accommodate the leap year) your Y2K problems will look completely different to those that you will experience if you elect to allow all your computers to tick over to 1 January 2000.

If you were to do this, you could do it at any time in the next seventeen (at time of writing) months, financial year end would probably be a good time, and you could probably do it with minimum disruption to your business. You would certainly be able to manage the impact through planned over time. I will discuss this option in more detail later, suffice it to stress now that 2000 is an entirely arbitrary, man made number which has no real relevance to any self respecting computer chip.


The actual manifestation of Y2K non-compliance is as follows:

1. The year counter 1998 contains four digits.

2. It has been customary since the 19 prefix is taken for granted by most users to write 98 rather than 1998 in order to save effort, save space and save ink.

3. On computer, doing away with the 19 prefix has happened to a point by accident because the manual systems that the computer systems were designed to replace did not worry about the 19.

4. In part, the 19 was omitted to save disk space. It is currently being alleged that this is the real reason for Y2K. Fancy graphs demonstrating hardware and disk storage costs have been published to show why Y2K is a necessary consequence of informed cost containment decisions in the past. My experience indicates that this is not the case and, in a later section I will explain why any person who claims to have taken an informed decision to contain disk usage by limiting the year to two digits is either incompetent or lying.

Insofar as the correct calculation of the age of someone born in 1998, calculated in 2000 requires that the computer calculates 2000 - 1998 = 2 whilst 00 - 99 = -99 there will be a real error in any calculation of this nature after 1 January 1999 for any computer system or software WHICH DOES NOT INTERNALLY RECORD the 19. This will affect debtor and creditor age calculations, interest calculations, leave calculations, age next birthday, pension, etc, etc, etc. The impact is NOT insignificant and cannot be ignored IN SOME CASES.

However, there are some good technical reasons why well designed software and hardware may not necessarily manifest the problem in the way that it is described and there are some simple ways of overcoming the problem in a large number of cases. These are briefly discussed in sections that follow.


Hopefully, by now, you are beginning to realize that the real issue with the Y2K is a numeric value that represents a counter relative to an arbitrarily set reference point and which is entered into a computer by keyboard or other entry device, stored on a computer disk and output on a screen or report and / or used in various calculations.

The only way that a computer remembers the date is either if it is written in magnetic or magneto-optical form as a binary pattern of zeroes and ones on a computer disk or tape or in the computers memory which may include so-called non-volatile memory which retains the pattern when power is switched off from the computer. In all cases, this is in practical terms no different to writing the same information on a piece of paper. The type, quality and colour of the paper and the nature of the writing instrument does not in any way alter the fact that the item of data is the year number "2000". In the same, way, replacing 2000 with 2001 in the same location involves overwriting the data on disk, it involves either erasing or obliterating with "Tippex" the image on paper. The concept is the same, the technique is different.

In computer terms, the manner in which the date is represented may differ from technology to technology but the principle is the same and the reality is that there are very few different representations used in practise. There really is not a great need for diversity since the date, an particularly the year, represents a small proportion of the data recorded in virtually every computer solution.


Having realized that data is really no different from writing on a piece of paper, it is apparent that to write over it is not particularly difficult, certainly not when it is in magnetic form.

Given that computers are very good at automatic repetitive processing, it becomes apparent that to either manually, using a data replace function in a database editor, or automatically using a small application written for the purpose, it is almost a trivial matter to search and replace the date fields in an entire database and systematically replace 1998 with 1986, and so forth. Once this has been done it is done, there is basically not very much that can go wrong other than for users to enter the wrong date, so we are back to the people problem.

However, this approach is potentially much easier to do reliably and has far fewer unforseen problems than some of the other Y2K solutions which require looking for parts of the software to change in pieces of source code which have possibly not been edited for decades and which are badly documented and where version control problems could be insurmountable. Trying to change someone else's computer program years after it was written and when proper configuration management has not been implemented, which is in almost every case, is fraught with difficulty and makes the Y2K very real and practically insurmountable for many organizations if they seek to change their software.

Data replacement is a much more reliable and much lower risk solution with almost 100% probability of low cost success provided it is planned properly and certain aesthetic issues are addressed.

As a second phase, the aesthetic issues can be addressed by relatively minor changes to the data entry programs in order to subtract the chosen offset, such as twelve years, from every date entered, before it is stored. This will overcome the problem of operators inadvertently typing in the wrong date.

As a third phase, those reports which are widely distributed and particularly those that are distributed to clients, can be modified to add the offset back onto the date after the data has been retrieved from disk and before it is printed.

The remaining input, processing and reporting which is for internal use and only used by a limited number of sophisticated users in-house can remain with the date with the twelve year offset. People are remarkably adaptable, they will easily accommodate this anomaly.

It is my expectation that this approach will eliminate in excess of 99% of the risk, reduce the cost of Y2K conversion by a similar amount and eliminate most of the hassle. It will also cause the business to focus on the 20% of the issues that will deliver 80% of the benefit in terms of practical and cost effective Y2K compliance. This is the approach advocated in the sections that follow.


A question that needs to be answered before we go much further is why a lot of equipment needs to know the year and, for that matter, why a lot of software needs the year.

As indicated above, the year is a counter, in reality it is only meaningful to the people that use computers, the computer has no need to know the year other than as a counter to which the software can apply any off-set it wishes in order to display a year that the user understands. Let us consider a few examples:

    1. Cellphone

If we take the cellphone example referred to earlier. The only reason that I know of for a cell phone to know what year it is is in order to display the date, including the year, on the display as a matter of convenience to the user. If the year were not displayed or were inaccurate, what difference would it make? Only that a minor convenience feature is no longer available. The same applies to many other pieces of equipment that display the year. We are faced with a situation where, because the appliance or item of equipment had the internal clock necessary to drive a clock and because the display technology necessary to display the date was present, we now have innumerable pieces of equipment which display the date. If the date is wrong, so what? In many cases you will find that the date is not set or is set incorrectly, ipso facto the year 2000 is unlikely to be a problem.

If it really worries you, why not set the date back ten years now and then you will know that the year 2000 will not be a problem with that item of equipment. If the date is manually programmable then, to the best of my knowledge there cannot be any possible technical reason to prevent you doing this and, therefore, any possible technical reason why that piece of equipment should even know that the year 2000 has happened. Unless, of course, something else has been programmed in which you have no knowledge of.

    2. Word Processing Software

If we take the example of word processing software referred to earlier. Typically it will use the date to date stamp files when they are written to disk but this may be a function of the operating system so it is possible that the software does not actually need to know the date in order to do this. It will also have a date function and various related features to enable you to date stamp documents and have the current date automatically included in the document you are working on. If you never use that function it is highly unlikely that the software will ever detect that it has a problem. Software bugs only manifest when the software executes the particular function concerned.

Again, you should be able to eliminate your concern for the year 2000 today by setting the system clock on your PC's back by ten or twelve years and telling users not to use the date function. You may have some problems with date stamp incompatibility of data files but that there are reasonably simple ways of dealing with that problem if it disrupts your automatic back up procedures. Certainly, you should have little difficulty creating an environment where Y2K does not disrupt your word processing, your presentations and most of your other office automation.

    3. Spreadsheet Software

The spreadsheet example is slightly more complex since you are likely to use the date and do date calculations somewhat more frequently. However, you are likely to find that in most cases the date is still a date stamp or, at most a counter. If you enter the date in one or more a separate cells as numeric values of Y2K and then minus ten or minus 12, convert the data to a date and do all calculations with Y2K-12 and then add on the offset at the end, you will get the correct answer ALL the time. In some places you may need to get a bit more elegant but the problems are unlikely to be insurmountable. Accordingly, a large portion of your apparent Y2K problems can potentially be overcome simply by putting the clock back on the equipment by any arbitrary offset that suits you. Just evaluate the merits of different offsets and prototype them first.

The remaining computer hardware and software actually does need the date for some purpose beyond what has been set out above. If you conduct an audit of all the equipment and software that you have been told is at risk from Y2K you may now receive a pleasant surprise.

By this time you should be starting to ask yourself why on earth Y2K has any significance for elevators in buildings, traffic lights and numerous other devices that are allegedly going to fall over on 1 January 2000. The answer is simply that, provided the clock on that device is reprogrammed at the next service to set it back by a specified number of years, there is unlikely to be any reason at all why these devices should even know that they are supposed to give problems. Unless, of course, someone has deliberately programmed them to know about the year 2000 and to break anyway. But no one would dream of doing something like that. Would they?


This leaves us with some software and hardware applications that really do need to know the year, however, by this time, we have probably reduced the scope of the problem to the 20% (or less) of applications that really are significantly affected by Y2K and which therefore constitute 80% of the real problem. Let us consider a few examples.

    1. Accounting Software

Accounting software needs the date in order to record the financial period and also for calculation of interest, debtors and creditors age analysis and similar calculations. The date is also required for invoice and statement dates, transaction dates, etc.

In the light of previous sections, by now you should be starting to realize that, in reality, if you tell your computer that the year is 1988 or 1990 and not 2000 or any other year that comes before 2000, THE COMPUTER should not know the difference, only the users will be slightly confused. However, if you make the change over financial year end, the inconvenience will be less.

You can overcome the problem of visible dates by some fancy footwork with the way you print your stationery. For example, print a dark shaded block where the computer is going to print "88" and print "2000" on the line above or below or beside. People outside your organization will NOT be confused, they will simply think that you could have done a better job designing your stationery. At the worst, you may have to put a red sticker or red block on your stationery telling people to read 1988 as 2000. Your software will still work.

In many cases, you will be able to edit the report specification in the report writer for your accounting software and could quite possibly define the report to print the current year plus 12 if that is your offset so the outside world would in fact see 00 instead of 88 and all the internal calculations would work.

There are some implementation problems with this approach but they are VERY unlikely to be anything like as serious as the problems of the Y2K upgrade to new software which has only recently been released as Y2K compliant and which any way is likely to contain some disclaimer for unforseen developments as part of the hype referred to in section 1..10. The principal implementation in setting the date back relates to existing data which has the old date counter attached to it. In other words, if in 1998 you set your clock back to 1986 (in order to accommodate the leap year and give yourself a reasonable time frame for further correction and to avoid confusion) you will find that all your historical data on disc still says 1998 and sequential preceding years.

This is NOT as serious as it first seems. Virtually any database today can be edited with a variety of tools on the market and relatively simple software routines can be written to systematically search the database and replace one data value with another. With careful planning and pilot testing, most small and medium size organizations should be able to roll their accounting data back 12 years over a long weekend. All that is required is some software to systematically go through the database and, starting with the oldest date replace the number with a number that is exactly twelve years older. Thus 1990 becomes 1978, etc. Since most systems probably do not have more than about five years of historical data, most of which is seldom, if ever, used, this in no big deal.

Keep in mind that if you convert to new software you will have to do at least as much work to convert the data and, in most cases, will decide that the conversion is not worth the effort. If this is the case, you might just restart in the new year with your clock set back twelve years, almost painless relative to what most people are postulating. In fact, you might decided that it is easier to re-key the year end figures rather than to rely on any I.T. techie at R200 per hour plus.

    2. Other General Business Systems

The same principles will apply to your inventory, stock control and numerous other business systems.

Combining this approach with that set out in section 1..16 most small and medium size enterprises should find that the Y2K problem has been largely dealt with.

Taking account of the comments in section 1..15, we have now reduced the Y2K problem to the 20% of the parts of the systems that represent the 20% of the systems that have a real problem, in other words, we have reduced the scale of the problem to probably LESS than 4% of what it appeared to be at the start!


At this point, you may wonder whether it is even necessary to set the clock back. After all, there is a possibility that, since the year is in fact only used in so few places your software might handle it anyway. After all, if you do a debtors age and it gives 00 - 99 = -99 instead of 1, will it actually make much difference? Within a few months the data will have sorted itself out. The only concern is if the software will crash in a manner that destroys your data or your hardware and you are unable to restart it.

I would venture to suggest that there is a lot of software that might hiccough slightly but once restarted will carry on working after Y2K as though very little has happened. In my opinion, it will require quite a lot of unnecessary code to cause it to do anything else. It is just the users who will be slightly inconvenienced and, with all the hype, if your date calculations are wrong I doubt that they will really get upset with you. In fact my experience suggests that those companies which are frantically replacing non-compliant systems and software will cause their customers and suppliers orders of magnitude more grief than you will so you will probably be the "good boys".

In any event, this is not too difficult to prototype and try out, any time that suits you between the day you read this and 1 January 2000. Please just make sure that you plan the test carefully and make the necessary backups so that you can roll back and reassess if something does go wrong. My life experience tells me that most people underestimate the complexity of anything to do with I.T. and then rush in without proper planning. This has nothing to do with Y2K, it is a fact of life. If you analyze it and plan it carefully, you have a better than 99% probability that you will get it right.

I am planning to do something along these lines in my own business. In fact, my only concern is that someone might have deliberately programmed something to cause something to break, otherwise I doubt I would be giving the matter any thought at all.


The reason advanced for the two digit year as opposed to the four digit year, that is 98 versus 1998 is supposed to be related to historical cost of storage.

This assumes that a date requires 8 character spaces on disk to store and that two character spaces can be saved by cutting out the century and millennium digits. In other words 1 January 1998 would be stored as 01 01 98 (typically designated dd mm yy) instead of 01 01 1998 (dd mm yyyy) thus saving 25% of disk space. This ignores the fact that this date can be converted to a so-called Julian date which is a date number either starting from the beginning of the Julian calendar or with an offset to a more recent date in order to reduce the number of characters required for storage. The formula would be something like the following:


This will compute a numeric value in terms of number of days since the start of the offset year which might be 1 January 1980 if the software was written in the 80's. I used this algorithm in a suite of programs that I wrote in the early 80's where I was concerned about storage space on a very restricted computer. The algorithm for calculating the Julian Number is widely known and widely published and I would imagine was taught as part of most computer science and other degrees at most Universities. It is an efficient means of doing any form of date arithmetic and it is likely that most software that does date arithmetic internally makes use of the Julian day number principle in order to do those calculations. In fact, any software or hardware that does date arithmetic is almost certain to use the Julian date or a similar numeric value for calculations as the only efficient approach.

Even on the computer that I purchased in 1980, it was possible to store the Julian day number as a four digit double precision data value, thus using only half the storage space required to store the date in the human friendly manner. Using this algorithm it is highly unlikely that the software would even notice the passing of the year 2000 unless the "19" prefix was added by the software on date entry screens, in which case only a very small modification would be required in order to achieve year 2000 compliance on input and output and all internal calculations, data storage, etc would be unaffected.

Given that I had access to this information and this algorithm when I was in my early twenties and a relative novice in the computer field, I have great difficulty in understanding why there is now a problem with regard to the year 2000 which is being blamed on computer storage costs. It seems to me that any major corporation that has produced hardware or software in the last twenty years which does not make use of the Julian date approach or a similar approach and which claims to have been focused on saving disk space, is not being entirely honest or is incompetent. They could have reduced disk storage requirements by 50% instead of 25% and avoided the Y2K problem at the same time! You might try asking a few Y2K experts to explain this and see if the answers make any sense at all, particularly if they were to be required to present those answers in a court of law in response to a claim for negligence giving rise to liability to make good your Y2K costs.

Please understand, I am not saying that data has not been stored in this format for other legitimate reasons, I am only saying that anyone who alleges that disk storage was the consideration is either not well informed, trying to cover up a lack of foresight or negligence or is deliberately using an explanation that has no technical grounds.

To elaborate, many of those databases which store the date in the dd/mm/yy format, also store the "/" or equivalent divider. In other words, they store 8 characters. To have stored 10 characters represents a 25% increase in field width. The reason for storing the date data in this way is purely to make it easy on retrieval to do the necessary manipulation, it also makes it easy to use any third party query and reporting tool to examine the data and report on it. If the data was stored in Julian form, requiring only four characters for a double precision binary numeric value, it would require a decode algorithm to be run against the data before a human being could make sense of it. It is NOT necessary to decode the data for the computer to use the data for any form of ageing or other calculation since it is likely to convert the date into Julian form in order to do that calculation. The driving force is ONLY ease of use for humans.

When it is recognized that any database application contains much more information than the date and that typically it will include a transaction description of anything from 30 to 60 characters plus at least one numeric value of at least four to ten characters against most types of date, then it becomes apparent that an extra two characters for the date represents of the order of 4% maximum increase in disk space. If disk space was really a concern then, given the obvious critical impact of the year truncation, it would be much better to reduce the description field by two characters than to reduce the date field.

Every way you look at it, this aspect of the Y2K problem must be the result of an entirely short sighted myopia bordering on gross negligence. While my experience of the I.T. industry suggests that this is not beyond the bounds of possibility, the scale of the problem makes one wonder how so many major corporations at the cutting edge of technology could have overlooked this factor. Or, are there companies that have dealt with it that we do not know about and others that realize that it is not nearly as big issue as at first appears? Surely it is not possible that there has been widespread collusion to cause Y2K to happen? Why would anyone want to do that? Does any organization have the level of influence to make it happen? It couldn't be! Could it??????


In the previous section, reference was made to storing the Julian date as a binary numeric since this required less space. By way of explanation, most computers make use of a computer alphabet known as ASCII, older IBM computers made use of EBCDC. The ASCII alphabet includes 256 possible characters that can be stored in a single character value on a disk or in memory. This number is a result of the 8 binary digits or bits that can be stored in a character or "byte". For most purposes, the ASCII code gives great versatility for text fields since it permits storing of letters, numbers, text formatting characters like carriage returns and control codes, as well as non-standard characters required for many European languages. The ASCII code list, developed, as best I recall, by the American Society of Electrical Engineers in the early days of computers is a robust code which has served the computer fraternity well in respect of storing much of the data that it has required to store.

However, when it comes to numeric data, it is very inefficient. There are only ten possible numeric characters plus the sign, therefore to store a numeric value in a character position which is capable of storing 256 different values is very inefficient. Accordingly, most computer software offers the capability to make use of a so called binary numeric form which fills the available space much more efficiently. In essence, this permits a value which would otherwise require four character spaces to store to be stored in two and a numeric value which would require eight digits to be stored in four. In other words, if space was really a major constraint this technique, together with the Julian date value would have taken much less disk space.

Surely, in an industry with the level of technical expertise that it claims to have, someone saw this coming and catered for it? Don't you think that the only other way something like this could have happened was with very careful coordinated planning? Surely that is not possible! Is it? Why on earth would they want to do it? Who has the resources to make it happen if they did?


By now you may have realized that, in reality many business systems, particularly financial systems, make very little use of historical data. The data may be used for a few months after year end for ageing and interest calculation purposes but in most cases that is all.

After years of advising companies on how to cut over to new systems I have found it far easier to leave the old system running on the old data for historical enquiries and even to let debtor and creditor ageing run out naturally than to transport the data. After a few months the volume of data to convert has reduced drastically.

It will be the same with Y2K. If you convert over your upcoming year end, you will have the luxury of simply reinstalling your software with a new database, a relatively painless exercise with many but not all systems and running the new system with an offset of say 12 years. In this case you will not even have to do the data replacement!

Since my objective in this document is not to provide a comprehensive technical treatise, I will not dwell on this point, however, I am available to assist you to investigate this option.


Hopefully, by now you are wondering what the Y2K hysteria is all about and whether you actually need to be concerned. In fact you may now be beginning to understand why you have been experiencing difficulty getting excited about Y2K in your business. After all, if the problem is only 4% of what it is made out to be that is not really such a big deal.

I must stress that Y2K is a real problem, however, it's impact on many businesses will be much smaller than anticipated. Provided you take what has been written here to heart and recognize that there are a whole lot of systems which do not need to be touched, let alone replaced or tampered with, you will be well on the way to undertaking a sensible, rational risk assessment.

Once you realize that the bulk of the problem can be resolved by data replacement and a date offset or reinstalling systems with a date offset you should be able to breathe easier. Or can you?

The joker in the pack is repeated assertions about things like traffic lights stopping working, the impossibility of accurately determining the magnitude of the problem, etc. Talk about melt downs, etc is also cause for concern. There are reports of the USA preparing the National Guard for riots in January 2000 and the possible introduction of martial law. There are suggestions that Military tanks may not work. Airlines are talking of not flying, etc. Something does not gel with what I have written above. Have I missed something? Technically, I am pretty sure not! Unless, of course someone has deliberately programmed a whole lot of hardware and software to KNOW ABOUT THE YEAR 2000 AND DO SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT IT?

Surely that is not possible, is it? In the next section I will begin to examine this possibility.








In the previous section we evaluated a variety of issues relating to business systems and established that the level of the Y2K problem appeared to be far less that it is made out to be. In this section we will seek to evaluate whether there could be more to Y2K than meets the eye.


There has been a lot of talk about Y2K affecting traffic lights, cars, aircraft, military tanks, etc. The first question that needs to be addressed is why would a traffic light controller need to know about the year. Even if the controller is programmed for seven day traffic synchronization it does not need to know the month, let alone the year. If it is programmed for 365 day synchronization then the year is important insofar as leap years are concerned, I doubt that any traffic synchronization system in the world is that sophisticated. It would be almost impossible to evaluate different synchronization patterns for individual days of the year. Apart from anything else, one would need years worth of data to develop any sort of statistically significant model and there would be no material benefit. The same applies to all the other systems referred to above.

It has been stated that certain systems keep track of the date last serviced, this may be so but someone has to program the date into the system in the first place, therefore it seems likely that in such cases it should be possible to restart the system with a date offset as previously described. So why is there a problem.

Certain reports concerning this issue suggest that the date is hard coded into the chip at manufacture. If this is the case, a number of factors must be considered.

Most microprocessor and other computer chips are completely inactive until they are connected into electronic circuitry and energized with the necessary electric current, etc. There is no need for them to retain memory until they are installed. Once installed, provision is made for so-called non-volatile memory to record system dates and similar information, however, this information is initially entered into the chip by some form of user interface software which obtains the date either from a keyboard or some other source. This same source should be able to change the date in future.

Secondly, if as seems to be implied, the chip has the year of manufacture hard coded in as a two digit year then there are some fairly serious technical implications. If this date is to be used to record service intervals, then it must include month, day and minute as well, presumably, otherwise a simple counter which records clock tics from manufacture would suffice. Remember that the human date reference is of absolutely no relevance to the computer, it only requires to store the number of time periods in order to keep track of maintenance intervals. Remember also the comments in section 1..19 with regard to the Julian date. Given that the processor will need to use the Julian date calculation in order to track maintenance intervals, why is the data not stored on the chip in Julian numeric format, it involves an unnecessary series of processes to store the date in date format so that human beings can read it. If it is stored in this format then there is NO Y2K problem!

Furthermore, considering the millions or billions of circuits included on these chips, there is absolutely no reason to limit the year to two digits. To do so would be petty in the extreme and would demonstrate a total lack of foresight and even the most basic technical risk assessment which I have great difficulty in believing that any registered professional electronics engineer would be guilty of. Furthermore, in the case of Military tanks, it is well known that the US Army Milspec is amongst the most stringent in the world. It defies the imagination to consider that the US Army did not take account of this issue. According to my understanding all US Milspec requires equipment to remain serviceable for a minimum of something like twenty years. In other words, if the rumours are true, all major military equipment manufacturers in the USA have been in breach of contract for nearly 20 years. This includes Boeing who are the manufacturers of a large proportion of the worlds aircraft both civilian and military and who craft must be included amongst those expected to fall from the sky. The level of negligence implicit in these assertions is beyond comprehension.

Surely if these rumours are true, by now there should be a witch hunt of the most incredible proportions with the Pentagon suing every major arms manufacturer who is guilty of this crime (there is no other word to describe it). But it is apparently not happening. Therefore we must conclude that either there IS NO PROBLEM or there is something else afoot.


By now I hope that I have established that, to a point Y2K is a fact and a reality but that there is no sound technical reason for it to give rise to anything like the magnitude of problem that is being portrayed. Therefore, one could easily conclude that most of the Y2K hype is just ill-informed hysteria and this it may well be.

However, when there is talk of mobilizing the US National Guard, declaring states of emergency and possibly introducing martial law, we need to look more carefully. When reports indicate that the major credit card companies, Mastercard and Visa have decided not to issue any credit cards with renewal dates after December 1999 and that there are comments that Y2K failure of "even 10%" of banks could give rise to a greater economic crash than the 1920's Wall Street crash, then someone is either overreacting to the hysteria, or there is something going to happen that has been planned or someone is planning to make it look like something happened.

At this time, I have to state that I am of the opinion that this is the case. The Bible talks of "great tribulation", there is talk in some quarters of the US State of Emergency including provision for all significant Christian leaders to be locked in concentration camps. The camps are allegedly already built and the computer to issue the arrest warrants allegedly already exists and is programmed with the necessary information. Bill Clinton allegedly already has the authority to declare a State of Emergency without consulting congress and Clinton is allegedly a member of the "Order of the Skull and Bones", "The Bilderberg Group" and other organizations associated with the Illuminati, Mafia and other secret societies all of whom have links with Freemasonry, all of whom take blood oaths and all of them therefore serve Satan / Lucifer as god and are heavily demon possessed and, therefore largely demon controlled. The ultimate manifestation of Satan's plan to complete what he started in the Garden of Eden is "The New World Order" and the "New Age" religion. I submit to you today that Y2K is a critical component in Satan's plans to take over the world and put his people in power around the world while at the same time seeking to finally stamp out God's people from the earth. However, God has a different plan and, if you are reading this, you are likely to find that you are called to play a critical role.


Reports over several years have indicated that the protagonists of the New World Order are following an overall strategy, which is well summed up by much of Mao's doctrines on infiltration, destabilization, etc. In particular, they are seeking to reach a point where countries become ungovernable through crime or other means in a manner which allows a small group to declare a state of emergency, introduce martial law and take over the country, in the process removing opponents to concentration camps in numbers that will make Germany and Russia in the 40's and 50's look like Sunday school picnics. The underlying talk around the "problems" associated with Y2K are laying the foundations for this to happen.

Another aspect of the New World Order is a strategy to eliminate the current asset position of private individuals by eliminating all physical money and forcing all people to use electronic financial units. Y2K creates an environment in which the collapse of the entire world's banking system can be contrived to appear to happen associated with loss of all computer records of all bank accounts as a result of "unforseen Y2K problems". A beneficent world Government, composed of dictators who have imposed states of emergency will then be able to issue "new financial units" electronically which will enable all people to make a new start in life, write of all existing debt and "sadly" also wealth and take what government, through the banks, gives them. Of course, since all computer records will "unfortunately" have been lost, a new form of identification will be called for. This new form of identification is likely to take the form of a microchip injected under the skin of the right hand or forehead refer Revelation 13:16 in the King James Translation, all other translations are incorrect, they indicate that the Mark of The Beast will be on the wrist or on the forehead. Indications are that this micro chip will be capable of containing your entire history, sensors in buildings will be able to track you as you enter and leave and the chip will contain a full record of your movements. It is alleged that the chip will be capable of being tracked by satellite and that it will be possible to energize the chip in some way to alter your behaviour giving rise to severe depression, submissiveness or violent anger. Thus the act of accepting the micro chip may not, as such be an conscious act of submission to Satan but the consequences of receiving the chip will be behaviour which will cause you to sin and turn against God as Satan's agents on earth manipulate you against your free will and control your every movement.

If we did not serve the God of All the Earth, the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth who sent His Son Jesus Christ to die on the Cross of Calvary to take our sins upon himself and to gain victory over Satan, this last paragraph would be frightening indeed. However, greater who is He who is in us than he that is in the world and those who endure to the end shall be saved. The challenge right now is to ensure that you are in the right place spiritually to be able to endure to the end.

Right now, if you have not made a quality decision to serve the Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength, do not delay another second. Get hold of the Christian who gave you this document and ask them to help you. Otherwise call ...........................

If you have made a decision to serve Jesus Christ, now is the time to recognize that there IS a day of Judgement and that you will be called to account for everything that you do in your life, even every idle word. Make a decision right now to repent of all lukewarmness and half hearted commitment, repent of all dalliance with the world and carnality and take up your cross and follow Him. If you are not where you realize that you need to be spiritually right now get hold of the Christian who gave you this document and ask them to help you. Otherwise call ...........................

Now we have our priorities right, rejoice that you are serving the Lord Jesus Christ, that He has seen fit to warn you of what is ahead and start praying fervently and humbly for Him to reveal to you your part in His plan. Make this information to other Christians that you know and to others whom the Lord may lead you to share this information with. Start networking with other Christians who are aware of what is happening, share what God is showing you and take steps to make the necessary preparation.

God is preparing areas of light in the world in a sea of darkness, you need to find one near you and make plans to move there. There is much to be done and much to be learned. Contact us on ................... in order to make contact with others who are seeking to serve God.


We have presented the information that we believe is relevant to you gaining an understanding of what is REALLY HAPPENING with regard to Y2K.

As long as you are serving the Lord Jesus Christ you are on the right track, if you are not you do not have time to waste. There is much to be done.

God bless you,

2013.11.10 WHY Believe in the Almighty Creator and seek relationship with Him

I recently met with a man who I esteem greatly but who, in the course of conversation, made a comment that led me to conclude that he did NOT have a deep personal understanding of the reality of the Creator and coming judgment.  Father subsequently confirmed this.

In praying about how to respond to this situation Father Yah made a number of very clear statements to me most salutary was

      James why would I want someone to spend eternity with me when they do NOT believe I exist?

This is the most obvious and succinct reason I have ever heard as to why people who do NOT have a deep personal conviction of the reality of Almighty Yah will NOT be "saved", that is NOT spend eternity with Yah in Heaven

This article sets out to provide an open letter that can be given to any educated person who questions the existence of the Creator with a view to challenging their unbelief and, IF they choose to change position, providing them with a list of documents that they can use to answer many of their questions and equip them to grow in their relationship with Yah

2013.10.06 Summing up re “The Bible”

I was recently asked to sum up what I hold to be true about the Bible and it seemed appropriate to document this.

What is written below is my consolidated understanding gained since 2001 when Yah told me that the Bible was NOT His Word.

It has taken me over decade to adjust to that revelation and to fully understand the way Yah sees the Bible.

At the end of the article are a large number of links to other articles that have a bearing on the topic

2013.03.06 Relationship with the Almighty NOT Worship of Intellect

 In recent months I have received a stream of emails arguing diverse topics based on human intellect and logic founded on the writings of men, including the Bible

Nearly always these arguments are totally at odds with what the Almighty has to say on the topic

Herewith please find an article written early last year which outlines spiritual measures that one can take in order to hear the Almighty more clearly and align oneself with Him

These recommendations relate to some apparently high risk prayers and intense fasting and seeking after truth

IF you are serious about seeking, serving and pleasing the Almighty Creator these measures are commended for your consideration

2013.11.03 Elaboration -- Judgment in THIS Life

I continue to encounter believers and people who claim to be believers who seemingly have NO idea of the principles of judgment in this life

Either things are going wrong in their lives and they somehow blame "God" or regard the Almighty as being Capricious and unpredictable

OR they are conducting themselves in spiritually highly dangerous ways, judging and condemning others, etc oblivious to the fact that they are heaping up judgment which will either hit them on the Day of Judgment or at any time in the remainder of their lives

This article sets out to explain the mechanism of judgment and how to avoid it and how to respond to it in some detail.

2012.06.06 I Pray So It Is Done -- NO!

Many people believe that if they pray something it is an act of faith to believe and declare that the prayer has been answered and it is done.


Some go so far as to pray something and then declare out loud that it is done!


In virtually all cases where a person is making a serious effort to serve Yah such a declaration is erroneous.


Prayers are ONLY granted to real believers when they are praying in the will of the Almighty (Yah), have the anointing and authority to pray that prayer, are free of sin that will permit the forces of darkness to obstruct or steal the answer to that prayer AND if the person praying is one flesh with any other human being or human beings plural is in harmony with all the people they are one flesh with.


The closer the family unit that is praying the prayer is to the Almighty the more rigorously the forces of darkness will oppose the prayer.  The further they are from the true will of Yah in their lives, the greater their error, the more likely the forces of darkness will NOT oppose the prayer or may even intervene in order to cause the fulfilment of the prayer in order to keep the person in bondage.


Even when everything is in place it can take decades for a prayer to be fulfilled, as in the case of the declaration by Samuel of David as King over Israel.


Furthermore, IF the prayer is the will of Yah it is unnecessary to make such a declaration -- the prayer will be answered anyway.

WHY Believe in the Almighty Creator and seek relationship with Him

IF YOU do NOT believe that the Almighty Creator exists and therefore do NOT have a personal relationship with Him you face a terrible fate when you COULD be blessed for eternity

The Creator has said regarding YOU "why would I want someone to spend eternity with me when they do NOT believe I exist?

Please go immediately to the WHY Believe page and give careful consideration to what is presented there

IF you have a DEEP inner conviction of the reality of the Creator, in other words you claim to be a "believer", but you do NOT have a deep personal relationship with Him such that He speaks to you clearly and regularly and you seek His guidance in every area of your life then He has said of you “why would I want someone to be close to me in Heaven, which inherently means I will give them great authority, if they do NOT have a deep personal relationship with me and have NOT proven to me that they can be trusted?”

Please go immediately to the Relationship with Yah page

This site is growing -- Re Blank Pages

As the site grows we from time to time add blocks of new pages which may NOT contain content for a while -- please accept my apologies for the inconvenience, you may find the information you require elsewhere on the site, alternatively email me for the information you are seeking
Note that words in curly brackets {} are words that although they are in common use are inaccurate in terms of the matters of the Almighty and should therefore be avoided

The Almighty Creator, Yah the Eternally Self-Existing, says: "It is time to choose -- will you be my friend, or my foe? -- there is NO middle ground!"

Yah says further:

"Ultimately THE AIM of this entire experiment is to find those who will make the sacrifices necessary to become My FRIENDS -- NOTHING is more important"
"A friend is one who is concerned about the well-being of the one they call friend and desires to treat that person as they would be treated -- HOW do you choose to treat Me?"
"True friendship is about what you can GIVE -- NOT what you can GET! -- what are YOU prepared to give Me (Yah)?"
"A true friend seeks to know ALL truth about the one whom they call friend AND to help others to know that truth -- Do YOU know the truth about me? Do YOU care?"
"In this age I (Yah) am MASSIVELY CONSTRAINED by the 'Rules of Engagement' in terms of what I can say and do EXCEPT through those true friends and true servants who will do the necessary work to KNOW my will AND proclaim it AND action it"
"There is NO greater love than that a man should lay down his life for his friend! -- Will YOU lay down your life for Me?"
"Technically a martyr is one who lays down their life for Me, NOT necessarily in physical death but also by sacrificing their comfort and well being in favour of doing MY will -- will you do ALL that it takes to serve Me and love Me as your friend, NO MATTER what it costs you? -- Will you be a martyr for Me by your way of living?"
"My true friends take time to spend quality time with Me daily and communicate with Me and consult Me constantly"
"Why Believe?
"Because if you do NOT you WILL find that when you die you are forced to serve and worship Satan for ever or at least until the day the winner of the 'The Contest' is adjudicated
"Realize that serving Satan after you die could be a really HORRIBLE experience, particularly IF you regard yourself as a GOOD person!"
"Imagine what it will be like as an ancestor spirit (demon) knowing the truth about the lies you believed and watching your loved ones making the same mistakes and believing the same lies that you believed and being unable to do anything about it!"
"Imagine what it will be like when you discover that you are irrevocably locked into the same dispensation that is behind the most barbaric and savage cultures on earth"
"IF you are a 'GOOD' person: when you die you may find yourself secretly hoping that Satan WILL lose 'The Contest' so that you can be cast into the Lake of Fire and utterly consumed in a moment of torment and terror, rather than being a participant in the progressive degradation of the human race into utter depravity, barbarism and perversion! -- and yet you will be POWERLESS to do anything about it!"
"The consequences of dying without a PROFOUND realization of my (Yah's) existence AND a DEEP life changing decision to serve Me is too ghastly to contemplate IF you take the trouble to REALLY understand the truth about the world you live in!"
"Imagine what it will be like to be a demon (ancestor spirit) riding on your favourite grandchild and watching them participate in the same empty rituals and mouthing the same meaningless platitudes that you practised during your life and being UNABLE to warn them of the terrible destiny that they are locking themselves into!"
"A person who reaches the end of their life as my TRUE FRIEND, one who has progressed from 'Wise Steward', to 'Good and Faithful Servant', to 'Overcomer' and ultimately to 'Friend' will receive rewards and authority of unimaginable splendour including a high throne, status and apparel that is far beyond anything that even the most powerful rulers on earth have ever dreamed of, let alone experienced -- contrast this with the other extreme -- an angry and depraved ancestor spirit (demon) desperately seeking favour in a kingdom where favour is a lesser level of torment and the right to exercise greater control and depravity over those less inclined to serve Satan and his Masterminds  wholeheartedly"
"Do YOU REALLY want to be part of a kingdom where the tortured murder of infants is regarded as one of the highest privileges of rank?"
"The evidence is ALL around you IF you have eyes to see -- the choice is CLEAR -- a Kingdom of beauty, love (chesed) and benign power or a kingdom of atrocities and perversion, a kingdom that regards torture and tormented and protracted death of human sacrifices followed by cannibalism, preferably while the victim still lives, as the HIGHEST form of worship?"
"It is TIME for those who still have some smattering of knowledge of me and my ways to STOP playing games with Satan and start taking back this earth while there is STILL TIME -- it is time for believers to STOP marrying unbelievers and allowing their children to marry unbelievers,, it is TIME to STOP marrying those from Satan worshipping cultures, and to STOP welcoming them into your homes, your cities and your lands -- it is time to STOP acceding to Satanic demands that you cast ME (The Almighty) out of your schools, your halls of Government and your workplaces -- it is TIME to publicly open the day with worship and prayer to me, whether in your places of education, your places of Government or your places of work -- it is TIME to cast out those who will NOT comply instead of being cast out and secretively serving me behind locked doors and, IF you CANNOT set apart that place of learning, or government or work then EXIT PUBLICLY and DECLARE your reasons and gather together with those who WILL agree with you in these matters for it is so that in the spirit one TRUE believer FREE OF SIN can put 1,000 to flight and two can put 10,000 to flight and the power of TRUE BELIEVERS who choose to deal with ALL their sin and live in ALL truth is such that massive transformation IS possible -- note the impact of Noah, Abraham, Moshe {Moses}, Yahooshua {Jesus}, Mohammed and Luther -- YOU TOO can bring about RADICAL reformation and renaissance IF you will lay down your life and seek DEEP and ENDURING FRIENDSHIP with Me!"
"IF you believe, it is TIME to assess exactly WHAT you believe about me and then ACT accordingly!"
"IF you do NOT believe, it is time to assess EXACTLY what you DO believe and then act accordingly!"
"There is NO place for fence sitters -- YOU are either FOR me or by default you are AGAINST ME!"
"Know this -- IF you choose to be a TRUE friend, which means you deal with ALL sin and ALL error and do ALL that is required to ensure that your house is FULLY united behind you the forces of darkness CANNOT TOUCH YOU -- BUT, IF you play games and continue to dabble in your favourite sins and errors in your divided house the forces of darkness will TEAR you limb from limb and UTTERLY destroy you -- there has NEVER been a time in all the history of man on earth where life above sin and total unity of your house has been more important!"
"IF you choose to serve ME (Yah), understand that you are choosing a VERY strait and VERY narrow path leading to a VERY small door -- gird your loins and FOLLOW the example of the mighty set-apart ones of previous generations!"

Footnote: ALL the above references to "friend" relate to people like you and me seeking to become true friends of Yah, the Almighty Creator

About names, words, etc

The majority of visitors to this site will encounter names and words they are NOT familiar with

It is a harsh reality that the true Name of the Almighty Creator of the Heavens and the Earth whose true Name is "Yah the eternally self-existing" has been concealed as have all the important names, laws, commandments, principles and concepts

What is taught by the "Christian" church is almost entirely incorrect as is the case with EVERY religion

This website seeks to present these truths for your prayerful consideration and adoption -- see the prayers elsewhere in this side bar for more information on what to pray

Key names and words that are used throughout this site and which are fundamentally important are:

The true Name of the Almighty Creator is "Yah the eternally self-existing", frequently translated as "Yahweh", more accurately "Yahooeh"

The name of the man commonly known as "Jesus" is "Yahooshua" meaning "Yah is salvation"

The commonly used names of "God", "The LORD", "Christ", "Jesus" are ALL of pagan, that is Satanic origin and the Almighty has only responded to these names as an act of Grace, this Grace has now been withdrawn

About the articles on this site

Most articles on this site are classified with a reference number comprising the year, the month and a sequence number within the month, thus 2013.12.03 is the third article published in December 2013

Most detailed webpages are organized with the most recent articles at the top and the Article List displays with the most recent articles at the top.  Searches on the articles list in the same way

Because I am constantly learning, newer articles will almost certainly be an elaboration or refinement of earlier articles and in some cases may significantly revise what I said in earlier articles, in most cases the later article is likely to be more accurate than earlier articles

In ALL cases Father Yah forbids me to go back and edit or correct articles, He wants YOU to have a close personal relationship with Him and therefore to turn to Him for clarification where things that I write contradict or appear to contradict one another

The articles from 2009 onwards are generally much more reliable than those earlier but there are important articles from the earlier days as well, in particular, the articles written in 2000 onwards were written during a period when my understanding was being radically changed on a very intense basis and when I was also getting closer to the Almighty at a very rapid rate

Accordingly the early articles should be given appropriate prayer, particularly if the later articles contradict or appear to contradict what is written in the early articles

That said Father Yah has said that there is much of value in the earlier articles and that they should, accordingly, remain on the site

Third Party Articles

This site includes some articles from third parties

In such cases Father Yah forbids me to censor, edit or correct such articles but requires me to present them in their entirety with little or no comment, as with the previous point He requires YOU to research and pray and reach your own conclusion regarding what is truth

Inclusion of third party articles does NOT indicate any form of endorsement of the person who wrote the article other than that it is my understanding that the article contains information of importance.  Such inclusion also does NOT imply any endorsement of this ministry by the person whose work is cited

It is up to each one of us to discern the truth for ourselves See the article on Seek Truth NOT Error for more information

Content you do NOT agree with

It is probable that you will find material on this site that you do NOT agree with, there is much that is highly controversial, click HERE for an article that proposes a way of responding to such differences

See also article -- Getting close to Yah -- Appropriate prayer and fasting are VITAL -- the answer to doctrinal differences


Important prayers to pray IF you believe that the Almighty Creator exists

IF you believe that the Almighty Creator exists then take note that He has said of YOU why would I want someone to be close to me in Heaven, which inherently means I will give them great authority, if they do NOT have a deep personal relationship with me and have NOT proven to me that they can be trusted?

IF you believe that the Almighty Creator DOES exist the following are amongst the most important prayers you can pray

Note that the true name of the Almighty Creator is "Yah the eternally self-existing" NOT "The LORD" or "God"

Father Yah, I ask you to help me to overcome to the end that I may be found to  be a "good and faithful servant" on the Day of Judgment

Father Yah I ask you to show me the level of my present deception and how to correct it

Father Yah I ask you to help me to draw MUCH closer to you and to know your will and to do it

Father Yah I ask you to fill me with your Spirit and lead me into ALL truth by your Spirit

Father Yah I give you my life to do with as YOU see fit

Father Yah I ask you to bring the people that YOU want into my life and to take the people that you do NOT want in my life out

Father Yah I ask you to open the doors in my life that YOU want open and to close the doors in my life that YOU want closed

Father Yah I ask you to judge me severely and correct me harshly that I may serve you more perfectly

There are many other prayers that you can pray but these are amongst the most important
