SPECIAL REPORT: Viji Varghese (aka, V the Guerrilla Economist)

For the last three or four years, Viji Varghese represented himself as a high level insider for the Royal Bank of Scotland. In reality, he sold televisions for Best Buy. The closest that he ever came to finance was his brief stint as an assistant branch manager, before being fired for not submitting a ‘suspicious activity report’.

Viji conned his way on to radio programs and YouTube interviews. He got himself on to Coast-to-Coast AM, SGTreport, USAWatchdog, the Hagmann Report and who knows who else.

And, he made a LOT of money.

I first heard him in 2013 and knew that he was lying, but I did not have proof. Now, I do.

SPECIAL REPORT: Viji Varghese (aka, V the Guerrilla Economist)

I hate doing these reports. I did one last year, and I hated doing that one too. But, my love for the Body of Christ compels me to seek the safety of my brothers and sisters. It is our duty, and I take mine, very seriously.

At the same time, I need to be careful that I do all of this in love. A good friend reminded me of this, and I appreciate that reminder. And, Mrs. Little will be VERY unhappy with me, if I do not act in love.

(You do NOT want Mrs. Little mad at you!)

More importantly, God will have something to say to me, if I do not act out of love. And, I fear God, most of all.

Is Viji A Christian?

Let’s start with the most important element of this, his claim to having faith in Christ. Of all his claims, nothing is more important than that. And, the following statement from a one-time friend of his indicates that he was:

In the beginning our relationship was based on spreading the Word and to wake people up to the fact Christ is real and His prophecy is coming true right before our eyes.

I will be getting to the source of that statement, a bit later, but the main point is that Viji showed all the characteristics of a true, born-again follower of Jesus Christ. The fact that he turned away from Christ, to follow the world… is truly awful in all the worst ways.

This is a tragedy, beyond anything that I can properly explain in words. For someone to grasp a hold of the path of eternal life, and then forsake it… It’s almost too much to comprehend. But, Jesus spoke of such in His parable of the sower:

He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.

 – Matthew 13:22

Now, you might say that being ‘unfruitful’ does not mean that you go to Hell. I’m sorry, but that is not true. Jesus spoke of that, here:

And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

 – Matthew 25:30

That was from the parable of the talents, and I hope that we all take this to heart. Yes, ‘outer darkness’ might not be Hell, but it sounds like hell, to me. Please do everything that you can to stay out of that awful place.

My hope for Viji, is that he will repent and seek to undo the wrong that he has done. Time is running out for this world. For all of us.

What Did Viji Do?

He lied.

A lot.

And, he was very good at it.

Unfortunately, for our society, lying is not necessarily a crime, if you are careful about how you do it, and when you do it. I am seeing reports from people that claim criminal wrongdoing on his part. But, I don’t know the details of the case, and I’m not a lawyer.

When the Lord Returns and begins the Millennium, I believe that lying will be impossible, for those who enter the Millennium. Furthermore, those of us who rule and reign with Christ during the Millennium and in Heaven… well …there will be no dishonesty of any kind.

I look forward to that day, with great passion. But, until that day comes, I sit in grief over activities by people such as Viji.

But, Did Viji Commit Fraud?

The question is whether Viji Varghese committed a crime. Apparently, the answer might be ‘YES’. Again, I am not a lawyer, but under 18 U.S. Code § 1348 – Securities and commodities fraud, the answer seems to be that a fraud HAS been committed by Viji Varghese.

Here is the relevant text, via Cornell’s Legal Information Institute:

18 U.S. Code § 1348 – Securities and commodities fraud

Current through Pub. L. 114-38. (See Public Laws for the current Congress.)

Whoever knowingly executes, or attempts to execute, a scheme or artifice—

(1)to defraud any person in connection with any commodity for future delivery, or any option on a commodity for future delivery, or any security of an issuer with a class of securities registered under section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78l) or that is required to file reports under section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78o(d)); or
(2) to obtain, by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises, any money or property in connection with the purchase or sale of any commodity for future delivery, or any option on a commodity for future delivery, or any security of an issuer with a class of securities registered under section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78l) or that is required to file reports under section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78o(d));
shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than 25 years, or both.

The above text – as of January 5th, 2017 – can be found, here:


Whether Viji is guilty of the above, will require trial by a court of law. But, it sounds like Viji will need a lawyer.

There is another troubling quote, and it’s this one:

In reading the articles written in the past month by Michael Erevna for his website Revelationnow.com, one of the interesting quotations of V to Michael Erevna was the mention of revenues of $6,000,000.  Whether this was an accumulation of income over a several year period, or that of one year, it is an incredible sum of monies. As an ex-banking auditor, I began to wonder under what business name such sums were reported to the IRS, or whether these monies were ever reported at all.

To make that much money over such a short amount of time, is very troubling to me. Having exited the investment industry twenty years ago, I know that legitimate brokers act on fairly slim margins. One and two percent is considered a lot. Sometimes higher fees are considered fair, under certain circumstances, but… six million dollars?

For someone with no formal investment training?

I smell something VERY rotten. HOW rotten is a little hard to deduce, with all the rhetoric surrounding the information that I’m pulling from the sources where I acquired the above.

Angry Rhetoric From Sources

You’ll notice that I have not cited my original sources, for the above – yet. I normally cite my sources immediately, and I will cite those sources in just a moment. The problem is that the sources are also making additional allegations that may, or may not, be true. And, I am attempting to keep a clear head on all of this.

I believe that at least some – if not all – of the allegations in these sources are incorrect. I’ve been an investment advisor and I managed a small, in-house mutual fund. Every person in such a position will have stories of recommendations made in good faith, that did not turn out well for the client – at least, in the short run. I have stories like that.

I believe that the allegations against Steve Quayle are just such a story. He believes in what he recommends. And, I suspect that he believed that Viji was who he said he was. I know people like Steve – emotional, processing the world through feelings, dramatic. Objective, introverted thinkers like myself tend to feel a little ‘run over’ when spending too much time with people like that.

My Sources

And, I’ve had my disagreements with Steve Quayle, but I’ve never detected a note of dishonesty with him. I question his judgment, but not his honesty. And, I believe that the sources below are incorrect in their accusations of Steve Quayle:

Unmasking “V” The Guerilla Economist

Unmasking “V” the Guerrilla Economist

Abracadabra: “V” The “Guerilla Economist” (Viji Varghese) Vanishes Resume Credentials!

Abracadabra: “V” the “Guerrilla Economist” (Viji Varghese) Vanishes Resume Credentials!

Unfortunately, this next one troubles me…

Hagmann & Quayle Take Down Their Lies “Setting The Record Straight”

Hagmann & Quayle Take Down THEIR Lies “Setting the Record Straight”

I don’t know what to say about that last one. I did not want to post that link, but honesty compels me to do so. If the allegations are true, there is something going on that I do not understand.

I have seen too much corruption in churches and among those who call themselves Christian. Therefore, I have to reveal EVERYTHING that I know, and hope that the truth will be revealed.

Before writing this, I sent emails to Steve Quayle and Doug Hagmann, asking for their side of the story. Steve responded that he could not comment due to ongoing litigation.

Threats Made To Me

I also received a message that implied a threat of litigation, if I went forward in my attempt to reveal what I believe to be the truth. It is possible that the threat was not genuine. It is possible that the person who sent it, was not the writer of that threat. The threat might have been made in a moment of fear and anger.

I understand all that. I get it. I am trying to keep a rational view of that threat, whether real, or not. But, let me make something extremely clear to all involved:


If you do that, I will double down. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

I have been asked by a trusted friend who knows the issuer of that threat, to consider it to be unintentional. I have accepted that.

Sorry about saying all that, but I have found – to my dismay – that I am not a very reasonable person.

Now, where was I… ah yes. Evidence.

Two More Sources

Here are two pieces from another site:

The Ambush of Guile: The Rogue Money Wire Fraud of V-the Guerrilla Economist

The Sudden Identity Crisis of the New York Connection

Again, I consider many of the allegations on those sites to be… in many ways incorrect. I certainly hope that they are. Unfortunately, there are a couple of things that I can say that are NOT complimentary to Steve Quayle and Doug Hagmann.

My Biggest Problem With Steve And Doug

The problem is this:

I’m willing to accept that they were dupes – that they were conned.

I am NOT willing to accept their response, when they realized that they were duped and conned.

What did they do?



This allowed Viji Varghese to continue his dishonest activities. And, those who were hurt by that silence… that suffering will be laid at their feet, when they stand before the Lord.

To paraphrase what God said to Ezekiel, “Knowledge confers responsibility.” Here’s the verse:

When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

 – Ezekiel 33:8

Steve, Doug, you were wrong in withholding your warning of what and who Viji Varghese was and is. If any have been harmed by your silence, God will have something to say to you about that. And yes, it is that serious.

We are about the truth. Our job is to shed light upon the darkness – to our own detriment, if necessary.

Last January (2016), I was forced to submit the following report:

My Report on Nathan Leal

My Report on Nathan Leal

Before submitting that report, I asked Steve Quayle, Doug Hagmann and David Lankford to provide their side of the story, so that I could include it in my report. Steve gave me something. Doug gave me nothing. David wanted a phone call.

In a situation like this, I do not do phone calls. If you cannot put it in writing, first, don’t expect me to call you, or accept your call. This is serious, and I don’t play games.

In the case of the report that I am giving you now, Steve was the only one to respond. I am not exactly certain who was the one that threatened me. I did receive an email from a mutual friend, that I respect.

The Cult Of Secrecy

Of all the ‘players’ in this sordid affair, the one who has been the most honest, is Steve Quayle. I believe that others have given him bad advice. I believe that there are some principles that he is guided by that are not Biblical.

I call it:

The Cult of Secrecy

The Body of Christ in America is infected by this desire to keep everything secret – to never air dirty laundry. It is everywhere in America, and it is how Satan has been able to subvert and destroy so many churches in America.

So, let me make another point, that I live by:


Do not ask me to. Never ask me to shut up, or hold back information that is pertinent to the health and safety of the Body of Christ.

If you do that, I will shout louder.

Never ask me to shut up, but if you ask me to remember to act in love… – as someone did – …I will. I will always try to.


Ultimately, this is a tragedy. A young man, who could have chosen to serve the Lord, chose the path of greed and dishonesty. Others who had the opportunity to stop him, did not. Those who were hurt by all of this, still do not know what to do.

Worst of all, the reputation of our Lord and Savior has been damaged. It is the literal meaning of the word blasphemy. It’s a Greek word. Blas means damage. Phemeo means reputation, or fame.

When our actions have damaged the reputation of Christ, we have blasphemed God. For a brother in Christ to do that… it is beyond horrifying.

My hope is that all who read this, will understand the seriousness of this crime – and yes, it is a crime. I hope that those involve repent of what they have done, and commit themselves to undoing the damage that they have done and commit to doing better in the future.

I’m sure that there is more to this than I have revealed here. If anyone has anything to add, please feel free to leave a comment. If more information arrives – or if I receive more threats – I will provide updates.

Yours in Christ,

John Little

  1. Not at all sure anymore what to make of all this trouble within the body of Christ. I have however now decided the best course of action for me is to stay tuned into Christ and not bother listening or reading anything from any person or radio show.

    • Yes, Stephen. I’ve come to the same conclusion. Only, I do continue to listen to people like the Hagmanns on occasion to offer warning to others to stay away from unfruitful entities. I’m so broken hearted when I listen to the Hagmanns show (read their youtube chat for 5 min and you will see an obsession with the world and a resistance to truth indicative of brainwashing). I’m reminded of Paul Washer’s commentary on false prophets being God’s judgment on people who want everything but God in the name of God.

      John, please consider doing a write up on the ethics of having sponsors as guests and using Christian ministry new programs to sell precious metals and satellite phones as Steve Quayle has in the past. In one program, Steve went so far as to use the “supplies are limited call now line” when selling Iridium satellite phones. In a subsequent show, he credited his poor sales figures to demons criticizing him in chat forums.

      • Hi tom,

        Yes, a discussion on ethics would be an excellent idea. It is so easy to be unethical in the communication business. This is why newspapers, then broadcast media, were captured so quickly. Newspapers are about making money. Broadcasters are about making money.

        And, we need to make money, to put a roof over our head and feed our families.

        I also know that people always start out with good intentions. Then, little decisions erode those intentions, until you are claiming to give unbiased advice, while steering people into your own products.

        One of the many reasons why I do not accept donations or do advertising, is that I do not want to have others try to twist my arm, because I wrote something that made a donor or advertiser angry. Unfortunately, when my money runs out – and it will – I will be required to either shut down or find some way to fund this site without being vulnerable to ethical compromises.

        I’ve seen how easy it is for people like Viji to walk down this road and trade his eternal life for the pleasure of this world. Whether he is saved, or not, I cannot say. But, one thing is for certain… he sacrificed great reward for baubles.

        As for Steve and the Hagmanns… I truly hope that what appears to be a compromise of ethics is… well …not what it appears to be. At the very least, they have not taken steps to appear to be above reproach. When you make a bad decision, you need to let everyone know that you did.

        This cult of silence needs to stop. No one likes having their embarrassing mistakes shown to all. But, it’s important.

        And, if Steve and Doug are NOT what they seem… the judgment of God will be upon them. It is better to live a hardscrabble life of poverty, than to live well and suffer loss in the life to come.

        I would love to do an article on ethics, and how to set up a system of accountability. I’ll see what the Lord wants me to do. I will certainly post anything on the subject, if I find it.

        Thank you, Tom. Great comment.

        Yours in Christ,

        John Little

  2. I had a friend, she is now deceased, that heard V on Steve Quayle and spent $500 to get advice as to what she should do with her 401K and the future. It wasn’t worth $2 of information. FYI, I told her I wouldn’t do it. She did contact Quayle and only heard V once afterwards. I think Quayle realized he was a con man.
    She did tape the conversation. If I can find it do you want me to forward it to you?

    • Hi Donna Baker,

      Ouch. This is the kind of thing that troubles me. Those that prey upon the elderly – while claiming to be Christian.

      Forward it via mp3, if you like. Just know that people like Viji are usually careful to emulate someone else in their ‘advice’. So, I suspect that it will be fairly ‘standard’.

      The problem would be if he was earning a commission while giving paid advice. That would be doubly unethical.

      If someone wants to do the leg work, trying to find out if he was charging up front fees, while getting a commission by steering people into certain investment products… that would be a line of reasoning to track.

      Making a couple million a year off of elderly people who don’t know better… should be a crime.

      Thank you, Donna.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  3. Hi John,

    This is deeply troubling, mostly because there seems to be a common denominator – the names of the players. These men have been trusted by millions BECAUSE they claim to be Christians.

    While this scam couldn’t affect me personally (I’m just a little person on a fixed income without ‘investment funds’), it pains me greatly that so many have been duped and that these supposed men of God are headed down a dangerous path.

    When I observed the reactions of these men to their obviously unjust attack on Nathan Leal last year, I stopped listening to their programs and stopped visiting their websites – not only because the attack was unjust, but because they refused to honestly evaluate the real culprit, Ted Broer, and from all appearances, continue in their relationship with him.

    My prayer was and still is that The Holy Spirit would convince them.

    Thank you, once again, for your courage in bringing things into the light that may not be popular.

    God continue to bless you, brother, and your family. Your work is much appreciated and much needed in these last hours.

    Your sister in Christ,


  4. Here’s praying the brothers in Christ were waiting in the beginning for more information to be revealed, before sounding the warning to the rest of the community.
    If not then they may be in shock on why they missed the Holy Spirit’s Warning to themselves.
    This either sounds like a set up through the DHS informants or directly from Satan himself.
    Either way the Christian Truther community is targeted.

  5. Oh John, Thank you…..
    From the first time hearing “V” I had my doubts, I thought it was just my bias against bankers. It was my spirit that was talking to me. Being a Real estate broker for 23 years my radar is always up and it was telling me this guy is “full of it”.

    As for Steve Quayle, I would have NEVER found you or many others that have helped me grow in the Lord, I pray and give thanks for Steve, The Hagmanns, Pastor Langford, and many others. Steve has always admitted to being duped by some and the regrets he has had when he found/saw the truth. Which I admire, it makes us human. It has happened to me and I am sure it will again. I can only pray that I will grow and it won’t be something I will end up paying for the rest of my life.

    People like “V” walk among us and are very clever. The best and the brightest have had our moments with these “Kind” of people.

    The truth always wins, which makes us all winners in our Godly growth.

    • Hi Nancy,

      This is a truly excellent comment. One of the reasons why this special report was so painful, was having to be critical of people that I care about. Steve Quayle and Doug and Joe Hagmann have been a blessing to those of us searching for the truth. Whatever compromises that they might have made via Viji Varghese does not change that.

      It is also important to remember that we see the negative five times more than the positive. This means that great damage has been done to their ministries because of compromises that they have made, and the appearance of compromise.

      This will be an expensive lesson for them, and I would spare them that expense… but, this is not in my hands.

      And like you, my own ‘radar’ sounded a warning when ‘V’ came on the first time. His choice of words and the style of speech screamed charlatan. And, I immediately tried to find out who he was, but I couldn’t. I tried several times, but it took an ‘insider’ to reveal his true identity.

      This is all very sad.

      Thank you, Nancy. I’m glad that your radar is out there.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  6. Thanks JL, was not having a go at you. There was all that with Nathan and Ted and not a word by the Hagmanns. I also wondered where V had vanished to, he was a regular on the Hagmanns along with Nathan. I guess with regard to Nathan if he was not going to keep quiet he was easy to ditch. After all that I lost faith in the Hagmanns, I feel my gut tells me to keep away from them. They should be fighting to protect us all not keeping quiet to shield themselves.

  7. Hey John,

    You may want to take a little different “take” on Matthew 25:30 on the “outer darkness.” As Matthew states, “and cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

    One of the brightest bulbs that has ever shown on the biblical field described this verse as (and this is not a quote) “the outer darkness in this passage does not line up with other verses pertaining to hell. God works on a reward system…..those that follow Him closely and obey Him get more rewards; those that follow Him but don’t obey Him and continue on their worldly ways get less or no rewards; the outer darkness seems to indicate the farthest outskirts of Heaven…..the slums. A place that the inhabitants weep and gnash their teeth wishing they did not live like they did, how stupid of me.”

    There is nothing in this passage that anyone should place any doctrine on. It is one of those passages that we will probably not understand clearly until we are with the Lord. Take care bro….


    • Hi Russell O Owen,

      Great comment and an excellent opportunity to clarify what I said.

      Yes, ‘outer darkness’ does not necessarily mean Hell. There is a question mark over what ‘outer darkness’ is, which is why I used the lower case in my second reference. To suffer such great loss, knowing that you could have received great reward… that’s a kind of hell to me.

      It’s not Hell… but it is a hell.

      Now, there is this one point that gives me pause. There is a reference to being ‘blotted out’ of the book of life. If I remember correctly, the original Greek indicates a ‘rubbing’ or ‘scraping’ out of the Book of Life.

      That indicates a capacity to lose your salvation. To be removed. Those that claim that you cannot lose your salvation… aren’t paying careful attention to the Bible. Remember also that I am not the one that needs to be convinced. God is the Judge, and we need to fear Him (as well as love Him).

      Thank you for that opportunity to clarify, Russel. Good call.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  8. I noticed that the famed “V” who appeared with SQ on Hagmann had sort of disappeared from their circle of friends. But not a word did they say to warn those listening. He was even on TruNews but Rick was a little leary of him. I lost $500.00 to dear old “V” , well chock it up to experience.

  9. Hi John,
    Having been taken by outfits such as the Prophecy Club, and a few frauds around our old church, I myself had to do a lot of repenting after coming out of a corrupt church system. (we were deep in leadership and saw it for ourselves, thinking the business and money side of the church was the way God’s kingdom operated.)

    To keep this short, over the years I have had a check in my spirit over V (heard him interviewed by numerous semi-Christian radio hosts, and also Steve Quayle.. I simply cannot listen to his dis-jointed rambling and fear-porn.
    I want to like Hagman too, but found it hard to listen and at times discerned some demonic manifestation of anger-murder coming from him..

    It really must be the last days, what a mess, but when we simply commune with the Lord and His Word the smoke of satan is blown away.

    -rory moore
    author of “The Tithe That Binds

  10. I”ve pretty much stopped listening to / reading Steve Quayle, Doug Hagmann and Dave Hodges.

    Hagmann’s promotion of Ted Broer and that “biblical tones music” guy… none of that ever sat right in my spirit. Even before the blowup with Nathan Leal, any time Broer was on the Hagmann show, I turned it off… my spirit just got so unsettled.

    With Hodges, I just ended up feeling he was always alarmist about so many things… especially things where he has claimed to have “deep source” informants. My feeling has turned into thinking of him as “Chicken Little” clamoring about the sky falling… and it hasn’t yet. I guess you could say I have alarm burn-out.

    David Lankford … I have zero respect for him. After hearing him talk about Janet Reno during a broadcast, using rude and demeaning terms to describe her sealed it. I understand his position about women and leadership, especially in the church, but there are better ways to present your position and your Christianity than the way in which he did it. Then with the Leal episode, I refused to listen to him any further. In my eyes, he is mean and judgemental, and I don’t believe I could trust anything he says.

    Steve Quayle… well, he stands out differently from all the rest. I have a true fondness (if you can be fond of someone you’ve never met) for him. Some of the things he is into (the giants, etc) are a little too out there for me. But he provides a great service linking articles that are usually relevant for today. It just saddens me that he has on occasion been tangled up in the snares of the enemy.

    Thank you for what you and Mrs Little do in ministry to the Body of Christ, both in Taiwan and on the Internet.

    • Hi PrepperGal,

      Thank you! Your comment is an exact reflection of my own thoughts and feelings. And I appreciate your thanks for our ministry.

      Unfortunately, because of this episode with Viji Varghese, I need to point out that you cannot claim with complete certainty that I am engaged in any kind of ministry (other than Omega Shock). Nor can you be completely certain that I am in Taiwan.

      Yes, there are Omega Shock readers that can vouch for me, and they are scattered about the planet. But, this incident with Viji is a warning to all of us to be careful in who we trust. (And yes, a charlatan will also say what I have just said.)

      Why does this always have to be so difficult?

      So, the next time that someone makes claims and asks for money… ask them to prove their claims. Never trust someone who is ‘anonymous’. It’s a part of what Christ called us to be:

      Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

      – Matthew 10:16

      That is a VERY difficult verse.

      Keep up the good work, PrepperGal!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  11. Dear John,

    I am deeply perplexed by this. Several years ago I subscribed to the Guerrilla Economist, but after 3 mo let my subscription lapse. I am a faithful listener to Doug and Joe, Pastor Langford, and Steve Quayle. I listened to Nathan Leal through H & H as well. I have corresponded with everyone except Pastor Langford.

    I faithfully read your website as well and commented last January on the Leal controversy.

    So much for full disclosure.

    I am deeply concerned about these issues as I consider everyone previously listed above reproach.

    I will have to take this to the Lord and pray for discernment. As with everything right now, Satan is trying to devour everyone, steal, kill, and destroy. Consequently, I shouldn’t be surprised at anything, yet am.

    This year I expect to see war, financial collapse, anarchy, natural disaster(s), more revelations about the pedophile elites, and terror. Maybe I have become inured to the sin of lying, but it seems to pale against the backdrop of my expectations of the future unfolding.

    Take care, and God bless you and Yours,

  12. Hi John,

    I go back to Oral Roberts and telling Christians if he did not get $7 million dollars (was it 8 mil. ?) that God would kill him (take him home early)

    Christians have been long time suckers for that kind of pressure. He got the money, and more and I saw $ destroy so many successful ministries.

    And then watching Benny ‘big bucks huckster’ Hinn up close in action.

    I think God allows the greedy hucksters into the picture because those who hold onto idols of mammon, money, riches, greed, covetousness are drawn to these hucksters and ripped off.

    Jesus warned us we couldn’t serve 2 masters but who is listening, or who really believes Him ?

    V chose the ma$ter he loves more, most.

    I see it as kind of a testing from God.
    So whenever I see the business, wealth riches and church together I run.

    All the advertising is a big turn off for me, I hate it, especially Christian ministry selling, selling, selling. I can see JESUS taking His whip out again and cleaning OUT His house, again.

    Like I told my little brother; When the economy goes down, you will have much greater fall, me, I already close to the bottom, so the fall, I might feel it ?

  13. Thank you John for bringing that forward it is a thankless task. But our greatest enemy is SILENCE while more people are fleeced and the unwary victims continue.God is using this time to awake the yet asleep and bring judgement on the predators.Everywhere we look,check out Carolyn Hamlets blog for more of what she is going through @ T.F.P.C where they are are using the the Name of Christ and hers for their own purposes.I can personally attest and research will back her up that what she is saying is true.

    I do not know about the personal side of things she endured but the occult teaching I am ashamed to say I know from taking some of the classes offered there.We must not be silent when the Name of Christ is dishonored and Christians hurt,and no repentance or forgiveness offered.Now more than ever we must know where we stand with and in Christ.Continue on friend STAND.

  14. Hi John.

    I appreciate the post, and, as usual, I believe some of it to be true. But where is the proof? It’s one man’s word against another, and in the end, all I could see in this article was slander. Doug and Steve did this on purpose to make money? Really?

    A man is known by his friends, and when I see the people who have gathered themselves around Doug and Steve, I will side with Doug and Steve in a heartbeat. Without an iota of slander, both men removed themselves from association with both V and Erevna. Without vetting, I seem to remember Steve posting an alert on why he broke ranks with Erevna. So in the end, this article speaks, to me, of simple slander. I don’t trust it.

    Grace, courage, and wisdom John! The focus in these days must be the Word, prayer and vigilance.

    • Hi Darren,

      I understand your point, and I can see why you said what you said.

      In these days of deception, how do you know ANYTHING is true?

      Am I really in Taiwan?

      Do I really have a ministry here?

      Is what I said in this article the truth?

      However, when I did a search on Viji Varghese, I found nothing on Steve Quayle’s website. And, I found nothing on any of the Hagmann websites. But, Steve personally indicated that Viji Varghese was a fraud.

      In fact, let me quote Steve from his first email to me on the issue, from Jan 2, 2017:


      So, why was I unable to find ANY warning from Steve, about Viji Varghese?

      I like Steve. I like the Hagmanns. I believe that they have been a blessing to the Body of Christ in most of their work. But, they failed in their duty to warn us about Viji.

      As brothers and sisters in Christ, we must hold each other accountable. It’s unpleasant. When iron sharpens iron, sparks fly. But, it’s necessary.

      Thank you, Darren, for sharing your views with us.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  15. I suppose Bix Weir will have something to say…hmmm, this is going to be interesting.
    Thank you for your steadfastness, John.
    Blessings to you and the Mrs for 2017

  16. This is all very disturbing. There is an epidemic of deception in the body of Christ, especially on the internet. We all need to spend more time in God’s Word and in prayer and ask Him for discernment and protection from deception. It’s so hard to know who is real and who is intentionally lying. Thanks for this article John.

  17. Hi John!
    The lesson here I think is never take what anyone says at face value. Verify, corroborate, then pray and check again!

    And about those threats? If you ever try to post anything humorous, I will hit you with the WORST puns!😎

    Hope this note finds you and yours well

  19. John. I had my suspicions about V for some times and I stopped listening to him altogether over a year ago. What you do in outing hucksters in these types of articles may not be popular, but it is important, and the great thing is that you research things so thoroughly before you do. I totally agree that whatever we do must be done in love. However, sometimes it shows more love to expose charlatans and save victims than it does by staying silent!

  20. Several months ago I had two dreams three days apart. It seemed very strange that I would dream about Steve Quayle because I hadn’t listened to any of his interviews in a long time and only have check his site once or twice in the last couple years. The first dream mentioned no names he was associated with it just told me that Steve was for he should be against and against who he should be for. Three days later I was shown that he was against Nathan Leal. I hadn’t followed Nathan either but I have read some of his stuff since because if God was showing me that Steve was wrongly against him then He was telling me that Nathan is right.

  21. Great work John as always.
    I appreciate all that you do, if I don’t…… I will let you know.

    We need more people in the Body of Christ like that.
    Stand up for HIM in all cases.
    I appreciate that you tell of your own short comings.
    I appreciate that you prioritize things well.

    We need to lose it…….. so to speak sometimes. The times unfortunately
    require it now and then. If we get too much in the flesh, we need to be
    accountable to it, own it, repent and get right with God….. and whomever
    else is affected.

    I know I’ve done it……. it’s hard to wake people up.
    It’s hard to stand in the gap……
    It’s hard to stand in the gap day after day after day…..

    I encourage you John…….. keep going!
    The reward is going to be worth it!

  22. Hey John,

    I have been reading your website through most of last year. I want to sincerely thank you for exposing Viji Varghese and those broadcasters who approve of his lies. I am sad to say that I was not shocked. We must become wise as serpents and humble as doves as we navigate closer to the return of the Lord. The wolves keep getting more creative in their distractions and enticements. Keep up the good (and difficult) work.

  23. I appreciate your willingness to not only be transparent yourself, but to hold others to that same standard.

    I used to listen to many of the people you mentioned above, as well as a few others. There was a wrestling in my Spirit though and I was reminded, “God is not the author of confusion”. 1 Corinthians 14:33

    So much of what I was hearing was not only in contradiction to what other professing Christians were saying with their “Move here!” “No! Don’t move here. Go there! Run!” “Don’t run!” rhetoric, but also in contradiction to what the Word of God says. Psalm 91:2-5

    I was left confused. So very, very confused.

    My family was divided, we were out money, we’d made moves in hindsight we should not have made, we felt used by people masquerading as our brethren. All because someone behind a microphone told us God said we should.

    I’ve unplugged from all of that. Now I listen to no one but the Holy Spirit. I will follow that course until the end, however that may come or when.

    • Hi Wanda,

      Your comment resonates with a great worry that I have.

      We all see – as Paul said – through a glass, darkly. And, I know that I make mistakes, and the thought that you would be hurt by my mistakes… well …that thought fills me with horror. And no, I am not being melodramatic here.

      I really am afraid of steering someone wrong. But, at the same time, I feel the need to tell people what I see. I have been ‘sounding the alarm’ for more than five years. What I have been warning about has not happened yet. My hope is that the past five years have not caused people to make the wrong decision, in their walk with the Lord.

      It is so difficult to chart a course of warning, and not induce hysteria in those who read the warnings. And, I’ve been a bit hysterical at times, myself.

      All that I can say, is that there really are no mistakes. God uses our foolish frailties to His own glory and purpose – but, only as long as we are willing to be honest about our frailties.

      Thank you, Wanda. May the Lord guide and bless you, in all that comes.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  24. I remember when all this garbage happened with Nathan Leal. I sent an email to Steve Quayle and Doug Hagmann asking them simply , ” what about the christians that were hurt by the airing and promotion of Ted Broer” . I got no response. All I heard from Steve, Doug and David we self defense speeches . They were only worried about themselves not the sheep.

    Now this. Oh well, I have heard Steve say on several occasions that God told him that all sin would be revealed. I guess he got that part right.

    A great shaking !!

  25. Thanks, John. I’m learning to trust you for straight talk. Here’s the “love of money” quote in its context for meditation:

    “But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

    Heavy-duty stuff. Let’s not stray from the faith. Fight the good fight, brother. Blessings to you.

  26. John, long time, no write..haha.

    It’s late where I am, so I can’t say much. But, my understanding is that Michael Ervena is also a fraud, who is buddies with V. Ervena is an alias, not his real name…I think SQ and H&H were duped like everyone else. They were both working for some type of intelligence operation.

    It would have been better if they could’ve been honest about V and Ervena…not sure why. Maybe a legal issue?

    Thanks for the information. Great detective skills you’ve got.

    • Hi Angel,

      It’s hard to know the motivations of everyone involved. I know that Erevna has had harsh words for Nathan Leal, which do not ring true. The fact that he writes under a pseudonym is a problem. He claims that this is normal practice, which is correct.

      But, concealing your identity is NOT normal practice for the Body of Christ.

      Standing in the shadows, avoiding the light, is not the way that we are supposed to operate. Paul and Peter did not hesitate to criticize each other, and did not tell people to hide their mistakes, or their past.

      Erevna has reached out to me and wants to communicate. As have others. My hope is that everyone understands that I do not keep secrets. I will always try to protect people, but not at the expense of the Body of Christ, or an individual brother or sister.

      Thank you for praising my detective skills. Anyone who has had to decipher the notes of a programmer, about how their ‘feature’ works… well …they’d have the same level of ‘detective skill’. Programmers are a special breed of human that often forget that people need to understand what they create.

      But, I can take no credit for this one. A tip from a helpful reader was what made it all possible.

      Thank you, Angel. Great comment.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  27. Wow John, this really bummed me out.i don’t care really about V. But,I hate knowing the mistakes of my brethren. I was here with the stuff with Nathan Leal. Which they have never tried to fix that relationship. And for sure the Hagmanns have Ted Broer on weekly. I can’t even listen to him. And I don’t understand why they can’t see the deception. Uuhg. Well prayer for the body. Praying for you. God bless,Kris

    • I wondered why others can’t see the deception either. It slowly dawned on me that they’re fixated on the world, not on the word. The result is fear, anger, and (frequently false) accusations against wealthy or powerful men whose hearts are no more or less wicked than our own. Paul Washer’s comments on Joel Olsteen put it all into perspective for me: these false prophets are God’s judgment on their followers.


      • Hi tom,

        I was just going to approve your comment and move on to the others, but after listening to the clip that you provided us… I had to stop and respond to it.

        Paul Washer is fantastic. There may be many things that I disagree with him on, but I have yet to hear them. And, what he says here, is something that I can say from the experience of having worked in Asia for 21 (now, almost 22) years.

        American Christians… If you come to Asia to spread the gospel, please make sure that you have left your AMERICAN gospel behind. We’ve had enough of American Christianity. We prefer the more Biblical kind, thankyouverymuch.

        We Americans have brought a lot of heresy into the world. A lot. It’s past time to undo the damage that we have done.

        Thank you for that, Tom. That was a timely link and a timely comment.

        Yours in Christ,

        John Little

        • I can not stress enough what Mr. Little has just said. Living in a third world country, I have seen first hand what North American missionaries are like. Be prepared, I am not going to hold back any punches. It’s not just heresy that is a problem. It’s the presentation, also. This will be a long one. John, feel free to reword if required.

          If anybody reading this wishes to be a missionary, or even just visiting another country, please, as a North American to other North Americans, I submit to you the following:

          – as Mr. Little has mentioned, it is highly recommended to leave the American/Westernized way of doing things behind. To be perfectly frank, the word missionary holds little to no respect in many countries. In truth, it is a big red flag. I could tell you stories that would make your skin crawl, blood boil and toenails curl from what I have personally witnessed. North Americans need to learn to be wiser, less naive, more mature spiritually, and know how to talk to people graciously. I am going to be blunt again. A lot of North Americans are naive and DO NOT KNOW HOW TO BE GRACIOUS. There are many, many believers in third world countries who are by far, more mature spiritually and gracious than Westernized believers. It’s the way we’ve been programmed. When we have had the best of everything, we expect and demand it. We are spoiled brats. I see it in newbies, tourists, mission groups and sadly, ex-pats who moved to the US or Canada, but especially the US. It’s embarrassing. And we’ve been trained to take in everybody, unquestioningly. We need to be cunning as serpents and gentle as doves.

          – the day of short term missions is over (I mean missions that are intended for two weeks, etc only). Period. They simply aren’t as effective as they once were. If anyone feels led to go to a certain country for ministry, it is recommended to learn all that can be learned about the country and the people before leaving, and endeavor to become “one of them” once there. Many a successful mission has been done this way. The right to speak into their lives is earned, not a given. It will take a long time, but once favour is won, doors will open to you. It’s all about relationship and establishing integrity. Try not to label yourself a missionary. Go there with the idea in mind to integrate and be a productive member of your new home. And remember you are a guest in their country. Act like a guest, always. Give them preference, say at the stores, at road intersections, etc. My hubby stopped at a crosswalk to let a local man cross the street, the guy stood stunned that a white man would even stop for him. It is highly recommended not to talk about one’s former home country (i.e., in Canada we did such and such this way; the beef there is soooo juicy and flavorful; the mountains there are so beautiful, etc…) Watch how they do things, ask questions to show a sincere interest in learning. Be grateful, always. Be gracious, but not patronizing. Patience will open doors and win favor.

          – if you go to a warm(er) country, ladies, cover up. Wear long(er) skirts and dresses, and if need be, loose fitting long pants. Wear loose fitting tops with a higher neckline and longer sleeves. No bra straps/underwear peeking/seen through. Tone down the jewelry and make-up. If you go to a place where they wear head coverings, I would recommend to wear a head covering, such as a hat, even a bandana is fine. I wear mine solely to hold back my hair, but it also has helped me be more readily accepted. Men, wear pants, not shorts. No tight fitting shirts. Both sexes should try to avoid clothing with logos. Children should be dressed modestly, too. Trust me on this one. Missions groups have no idea what the locals say about how North American/Westernized missionaries are dressed and present themselves. In some countries, the locals believe what you wear reflects who you are. Think about that…. In my opinion, Christian men, women and children should be wearing modest type clothing anyway. Anything to keep others’ eyes off us and on Him is the goal. We represent the righteous Kingdom of our Elohim.

          – act like you live there, even if you’ve been there a day or so. Learn quickly what’s safe and what isn’t. Keep a small stash of cash in a pocket, and avoid taking out a wallet full of cash.

          – if in a male dominated country, ladies, it is recommended to let the men in your group speak for you, try to keep eye contact and conversation to the women, and vice verse for the men. Where I live, in certain situations, not heeding this advice can get you in serious trouble, or even killed. We helped out a young American couple who got into a bit of trouble for not following the proper cultural protocol. They did things that would have worked in the US.

          – anyone called to be a missionary, I would highly recommend watching Dr. Bree Keaton. In my opinion, she’s a great person to learn from. She is a “hardcore” missionary who knows what it’s like to truly love the ones to whom she’s been sent.


          • Hi T2L,

            Well said.

            We need to love the people that God sends us to. We need to live as they do. We must make sure that there is nothing that we do or wear that puts a stumbling block in front of the message of Christ.

            Well said, T2L. Very well said, indeed!

            Yours in Christ,

            John Little

      • Dittos to you both. Sadly there is far too many “sellors of doves” in the temple, making merchandise of God’s people for personal gain.
        As an elder in the body of Christ, (age 65 whether I like it or not), I have seen so much ripping off of God’s people..
        IT IS THE “ELDERS” (overseers) responsibility to God’s people to point out wolves and deceivers, not herd them into their jackpot. John is doing the right thing in warning.

  28. Dear Brother,
    Like so many others, I was at one time an avid listener of Hagman and Hagman; but through the course of time I felt troubled by Doug Hagman’s pontificating. Also I was uncomfortable with Steve Quayle’s using the program to promote his products for sale.

    When the dust-up happened with Nathan Leal and the horrid dialogue of Quayle, Lankford and Doug Hagman concerning this issue and Nathan’s subsequent removal as a speaker at an upcoming conference I was appalled. Since that time I have been a monthly contributor to Watchman’s Cry.

    There is a clique of broadcasters who ignore one another’s sins, biblical misinterpretations and ostracism of brethren to protect their own programs, book sales, donations etc. What is to become of the church with leaders such as these?

    Thankfully we have the Bible and Holy Spirit to lead us.

    Good work John,

    Your sister in Jesus,


  29. Hey John

    “And in secret have I said nothing” John 18-20

    So. Are we to believe the “unique father-son detective duo” and SQ were duped by the TV salesman?
    I don’t buy it. Let’s remember that V was only the latest of secret entity’s to manifest on the Hagmann/Quayle show. Let’s not forget “Rosebud” the DHS insider, and of course don’t forget the all knowing “W” whom Doug was willing to take a bullet for. Unfortunately both of these entity’s have been proven to be frauds. V was nothing new, he was just a continuation of the same game that was proving to be successful.I remember an alleged MD with insider info who was supposed to be called “S”. The show archives no longer go back far enough to verify that but I remember it. For what ever reason he didn’t catch on. There’s usually a secret “backstory” or secret revelation that may or may not be possible to reconcile with scripture. SQ regularly reveals secret info from secret 1,2,3, and 4 stars generals who seem perfectly willing to risk careers and imprisonment to feed him secret information. I just don’t buy any of it. Way to many things being said and done in SECRET.
    Having been sucked in by these guys for a season, I now regard much of alternative “Christian” media as a cabal of “Christian” con men and women. A cabal dedicated to spreading fear for personal gain. A cabal dedicated to spreading a false “saddle for battle” gospel. A gospel that says be ready to defend yourself, be ready to shoot your starving neighbors, be ready to love your life unto death, be ready to preserve the flesh at all costs.
    Jesus simply did not teach these things.
    Not in public. Not in SECRET.

  30. Christianity is a lie from Constantine

    Christian leaders are all liars, ALL

    The Catholic Messiah Jesus Christ is a lie

    Finally, Christianity is the religion of Esau, for the Edomites, a false pagan religion

    Quayle, hagmann, lankford or little. All the same. Christian deception at its best.

    • Hi LIES,

      I had to change your name, because you called yourself ‘Truth’, and that just doesn’t fit the heresy of your statements. I don’t normally allow your comments through, but this was just too good to pass up.

      Sorry, LIES. But your lies are lies. Hell awaits you.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

    • An interesting hit piece on me, all by itself. Sorry, but he needs to show me where I lied. (Oh, and Mrs. Little forbids me to respond directly to what Steve said. Grrrrr…) Thank you, Joe. I appreciate that and am grieved that there is no repentance. – JL

      • I read the SQ response article. I wish he would type in upper and lower case like normal people.

        Well – now you done it John Little – you criticized “God’s Anointed.” (<-Joking there.) That is a common tactic of cult leaders and other religious leaders who get so full of themselves that any time someone questions their behavior, the questioner is guilty of "touching God's anointed." No man or woman, except the Perfect Man Jesus Christ, is exempt from being examined and questioned.

        Like others who have commented on this article, I followed the Hagmann's closely and supported them financially for 2-3 years – until they "threw Nathan Leal under the bus." We make a big mistake following anyone blindly – even people with the best of intentions make mistakes.

        I don't really know what to believe about the Hagmann's and SQ – whether they had sincere intentions or if it is all a fraud like Herb said above.

        Thanks for your courage, John and I hope the Lord will provide discerning people to help keep you on the Right Path.

        • Hi Nancy B,

          I have a heavy heart over all of this, and I have to be careful to respond to what they have said and done in a Godly manner. I also need to give them as much ‘benefit of the doubt’ as I can, but without ignoring the facts.

          Often those of us who enter some form of ministry, receive praise for the work that we do. When we receive too much praise, we start to believe it. That belief in our own goodness turns into pride, and that pride poisons our hearts.

          I see this defect in myself, so I can understand how Steve, et al. can also be affected.

          There’s an old American proverb that says, “Never believe your own press clippings.” I think that applies here.

          What happened to Steve, Doug and Viji could happen to any of us.

          Never follow anyone blindly. That includes myself. The ONLY one – as you say – that we should follow blindly, is Jesus Christ.

          Thank you, Nancy. This is all a very sad tale.

          Yours in Christ,

          John Little

          • I like what Rick Wiles recently said, (paraphrased) “the problem with a lot of these so called watchmen is pride. Their greatest fear is admitting when they are wrong”.

            I used to listen to Hagmann and Quayle every night for two straight years. But I have had enough of Steves attack against anyone who disagrees with him. And after the Nathan Leal scourging and Ted Boers new age mystical Christianity, I have turned them off. There is something wrong going on there.

          • Hi Patrick,

            How ironic that Rick Wiles would say that. He had me banned from his own site for asking why he was against Israel. Rick is a very proud man and is also incredibly furious with any criticism of himself. Hopefully, the intervening years since my interaction with him will have softened him a bit.

            Rick Wiles opposes the work that God is doing in Israel. Until he repents of that, he risks the judgment of God upon his ministry. And yes, I have the emails to back up those statements.

            Hopefully, Rick has repented and is no longer in opposition.

            Thank you, Patrick.

            Yours in Christ,

            John Little

          • Yes John, I have heard some criticism of Israel on occasion but not recently. I’m not clear on what his real issue is with them and I really don’t know the ins and outs of that. I really thought he was just being critical of “political” Israel in regards to some corruption, deception and their questionable involvement in Syria. We know Israel still needs to accept their savior and in the meantime doesn’t always make the right decisions, but I was not aware it went deeper than that. Thanks for your comment.

  31. Hi John, I have watched for years as people pull one bible verse out, and make a statement out of it. Well My bible tells me that out of the mouth of 2 or 3 witnesses shall every word be established. So here is my witness:
    I was a widow of maybe 2 months when it was recommended if you wanted high level advise to pay $500 to “V” and he would help you with financial decisions. Well this widow was defrauded. He did not give me any good advise. I lay the blame on SQ and H & H as well as myself for being so stupid.

    As far as SQ’s response, I will quote 2 Tim 4:14. Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil the Lord reward him according to his work.

    Pride say’s I have no sin. But God says Pride goeth before the fall.

    I just re-read SQ’s comment. Isn’t it interesting how it’s always the messenger that gets attacked, beaten, slaughtered etc. Hang in there John, even at great personal risk you told the truth.

    • Hi Sandy McIntosh,

      In this age of deception, we look for people to trust, who will not deceive and abuse us. For a Christian brother to abuse your trust like this, is horrifying to me. And, I am sorry for this, from the bottom of my heart.

      Steve has not accepted responsibility for allowing this to happen. He needs to. When he knew about Viji, he did nothing.

      As for me, my personal risk is small. Yes, OmegaShock has a reduced visibility, since the kerfuffle over Nathan Leal, but that’s okay. The message will get out, regardless. And, should they sue me in court, well I would welcome their attempt. A law suit would give me permission to dig around and uncover any more secrets that might be out there. I even regret the fact that being here in Taiwan would make it more difficult for them to attack me.

      Again, I am sorry that you have been touched by this, Sandy. Thank you for adding your voice to this.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  32. John, IIRC I sent some information links on Erevna last year about this time in the replies section when the Leal debacle happened. He definitely has flags all over him as well. The Christian cabal is always, always crying “the sky is falling”. Listeners or readers should be able to detect the truth at some point if they have any discernment. Whether trump is “sent by God”, or Niburu is coming in two months, or Deutsche bank is collapsing next week, SARs or some other disease, etc. They are usually wrong in the end, and they get “fooled” because they surround themselves with guests that say what they are likely wanting to hear themselves. John, if I read 3 months of your articles, and have any people skills at all I’m sure I could craft a nice yarn that sounds so good to you, because I would play on your sympathies, and your scriptural leanings. Now, discernment would hopefully alert you, but a skilled con-man knows what to say, who to say it to, and should pepper some escape rhetoric in his discussions as well–in case the ” times or dates” are wrong. People should do some prepping, even if only prepping for lights out or hurricanes, or whatever. If nothing else buy stuff you normally use, and can rotate easily. There is no reason not to have some containers for water, matches, batteries, and stuff like that. In the end not having preps is as silly as going way overboard. But it is always better, and more vital to your soul and spirit to be in the word, and in continual prayer. All that said, thanks for your hard work…especially work like this. Like some others here, I still like Steve as a news aggregator, but I grow more cautious weekly. I think Steve is unfortunately guilty simply of surrounding himself with people that say what he wants to hear. DB

    • Hi David Barker,

      You have clear sight, and that’s good to see.

      When you look back at what I have written, over the past five years, you’ll see where I have made quite a few mistakes. I wince at those, but I won’t take them down. They are a testament to my fallibility. I see some things clearly. Others, I do not. If you trust me, you will run into trouble. If you trust God, all of your troubles will be no trouble at all.

      Like you, I value Steve Quayle’s site. In fact, I still have it in the ‘blog roll’. And, I like Steve. But, he’s made some serious mistakes, and he needs to deal with those mistakes properly. As a true Christian.

      Thank you, David. Excellent comment, brother.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

    • Hi David,

      This is Michael Erevna. Please do tell the “flags” surrounding me. I would like to take this opportunity to directly address misinformation and libel for my future lawsuit against all parties involved.

      If you are acting in TRUTH you should have no problem sharing them in detail as opposed to the innuendo you just stated about me. I look forward to learning about these “flags” you stated.

      • Hi Michael Erevna,

        I’m sorry, but this reflects badly on you. I can understand the hurt that you might feel over all that has happened, but to threaten lawsuit is going too far.

        Here’s what Paul had to say on the issue:

        5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?

        6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.

        7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?

        8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.

        – 1 Corinthians 6:5-8


        You might claim that Steve Quayle and the Hagmanns aren’t Christians. But, are you sure?

        The best that you have are suppositions. Hints and allegations. Until you have absolute proof, you are constrained by Paul’s admonition in 1 Cor 6. And, should you sue someone who is a brother in Christ, for merely expressing an opinion that is negative towards you… God help you. Judgment will come to your life.

        Please repent of this threat, Michael. This demonstrates that you are not right with God.

        Yours in Christ,

        John Little

  33. Thank you for writing this piece — it needed to be said. Unfortunately, it also stirs up a lot of dust in the Christian community that is usually quite comfortable under the rug. It drives me crazy that Christians who are supposed to love truth get so uptight when you actually speak it. They call it “discord among brethren,” and run the other way. This article was posted on a Christian FB forum the day it came out and was taken down about 24 hours later when people couldn’t keep their tones civil and the moderator couldn’t handle the conflict. I’m disappointed in both.

    The once cohesive “remnant” group of Christians has been split, but it’s like a vase that has fallen but not shattered. From afar, it looks the same as it always has. Only when you get up close do you see the cracks, and one day, it will come apart. Steve Quayle speaks of Holy Spirit discernment in his rebuttal of this article, but I am afraid that it is he and his group who have wandered off the path, I pray for them to find their footing again before the division is permanent.

    • Hi Angela G.,

      I am sorry for this division. It certainly isn’t what I wanted.

      Your comment brings to mind a few verses:

      Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

      1 Timothy 5:20

      For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.

      1 Corinthians 11:19

      But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light

      Ephesians 5:13

      We are to hold each other accountable. Publicly. As much as I would like to avoid this discord, it is inevitable. If I said nothing, someone else would have spoken. When there is sin in the Body of Christ, proclaiming the truth is the only remedy.

      Steve and Doug have sinned. My hope is that they will acknowledge their sins and turn towards a more responsible path. I also hope that Viji will repent, but that is a far more distant hope.

      Thank you, Angela. Those who hold fast in their love of the truth, will cross the finish line. Those who don’t, won’t.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  34. Hi John
    I pray that you respond to the SQ alert on you, and that Mrs. Little gives you the go ahead. I am disappointed that Steve Q never ratted this v guy out after giving him such high recommendations. We need truth tellers like you. Thanks

  35. Thank you very much for all this information, which is news to me. When “V” started appearing on H&H some years ago, I emailed him with a specific question. He replied immediately but instead of answering it, he scoffed and mocked and belittled. And shortly afterwards, he emailed me AGAIN, to mock and belittle my question some more!

    ??? I then emailed Doug H to tell him that fyi, (a) this guy is a piece of work; (b)promoting someone like this doesn’t do your cause any good, and I think you should want to know how he treated one of your listeners.

    When all mention of “V” disappeared from both H&H and SQ, I simply assumed that others had complained about his unprofessionalism too. I never imagined that they dropped him because they discovered he was a complete fake! Totally agree with you, ethically they should have told listeners right away that “V” was not legit–by their silence they allowed his fraud to continue. Morally they are thus complicit.

    I’d also put the radio-show “Hawk” into the same category. He also interviewed “V” and at one point told us he was from the Royal Bank of Scotland. Don’t know that he ever corrected himself. It’s possible he told his listeners about his mistake and I just missed it, but… not holding my breath on that one.

    How is it possible that they didn’t do any verification of this guy and his credentials, before touting him to the world? Sounds like a classic case of “fake news” to me! “V” is a financial expert, and the Russians hacked the election…

    • Hi Marie,

      Thank you for that information. It’s yet another piece of verification. I am so grieved by all of this. It’s a betrayal of the Body of Christ, and it also defames the name of Jesus Christ – which is the very definition of blasphemy.

      I am so sorry about all of this. I really am.

      Thank you, Marie. That was a valuable addition to our understanding.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  36. This is so very disturbing, disappointing, and damaging to the name and body of Christ. I was also on Nathan Leal’s side in the Ted Broer situation and have not listened to TB since then. It bothered me that H&H continued to support him and have him on their show every week. However, I still listen to the H&H shows (except Fridays w/TB). Where do we go for trustworthy news reporting and analysis on world events? Most of the people I turn to for new analysis are all connected to each other. With all the MSM fake news, for those of us who love truth and know Bible prophecy, we need to know where to go for trustworthy information. I continually pray for discernment in these last days. Thanks so much John for shedding the light on this matter. You have no dog in the race like so many others connected to them. God bless you and thanks again for the information you shared. Your sister in Christ, Vicki A.

    • Hi Vicki Alvar,

      I agree with you completely. The only way that we will be able to navigate these waters, is through the application of discernment. However, discernment is a gift of the Holy Spirit. And, we cannot have access to that, if our lives are devoted to worldly things.

      So, we should all do our best to avoid anything that would point us to the sins of the flesh. This is my own challenge, as well. I am continually having to fight off the carnality that our world invites us to indulge in.

      And then, read your Bible. I’m sure that you’re already doing this, but it cannot be emphasized enough. My own way is through the One Year Bible. ALL of the Bible has been given to us for edification.

      Once we have that, we can fulfill the command of Jesus in Luke 21:36, where He tells us to WATCH.

      My favorite sources for ‘watching’ are on the ‘Blogroll’ that is on every page of my site. My favorite, is at the bottom, ZeroHedge. My other favorite is Marcel’s RebelPlanetDispatch.

      Thank you, Vicki!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  37. i would be interested in your suggestions on good people, websites, youtube channels, etc. to watch/listen/read, since the hagmanns, quayle and langford are not being upfront. thanks.

    • Hi charlie,

      Unfortunately, there isn’t ANY website – including my own – that you can trust completely. I do my best, but no one sees what is going on, perfectly. I continue to list Steve Quayle’s site on my ‘blogroll’, because it is still a good site. However, you do need to be a little careful. There’s a lot of hysteria mixed in. But, still… it’s a good site.

      Another site is ZeroHedge. It’s not Christian in ANY way. But, there’s good stuff there.

      One of my favorite sites is Marcel’s Rebel Planet Dispatch. He certainly has the right heart.

      RevolutionRadio.org is another good one that I haven’t had as much time to get to.

      CaravanToMidnight.com charges $5/month, for a year, for John B’s shows. But, there’s a TON of good material. If you have the cash, it’s worth it.

      Mark Snyder has been folding all his work, plus other work, into ‘themostimportantnews.com’. There’s a lot that is good there. A lot.

      Oh, and survivalblog.com. Excellent material there, too.

      I hope that helps, Charlie. Feel free to share any other sites, when you run across them.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  38. John,
    It is good to see you continue to stand for the truth. As the LOVE OF THE TRUTH is what sets apart true followers of Christ. Truth can be painful and it can hurt, but truth does set us free.

    I’m sorry that you have lost coverage because of the TB and three mikes fiasco with regard to my husband Nathan Leal.

    But as Nathan keeps telling me..that is okay the ones GOD wants listening/reading are still there.

    Thank you for this well researched expose.

    God Bless and keep up the good fight,

    Donna A. Leal
    Watchman’s Cry Ministries.

    • Hi Donna,

      Omega Shock’s fall in the web rankings is literally less than nothing. Nathan has it right. God will make sure that the message gets to the eyes and ears that need to see and hear. In fact, I rarely EVER check OS’s rankings. It just doesn’t matter.

      What matters to me, is what I will hear from God when this life is over, which means that doing nothing in the face of injustice is just not possible. I deeply regret those times when I have hesitated or was unable, and I hope that – in those situations – someone else fulfilled the responsibilities that should have been mine.

      Jesus said that the world will know that we are His, because of the love that we have for each other. And, that means standing in the way and doing our best – when a brother or sister is in need. To do otherwise is to show that we are NOT followers of Christ.

      Before the kerfuffle over Nathan, I didn’t really follow the work that you both were doing. Now, I do. So, I consider myself and my readers to have been blessed by the situation.

      My hope and prayer is that Steve and Doug will repent of their sins and commit themselves to behaving better.

      Mrs. Little and I send you and Nathan a big hug!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  39. Hi John, I want to chime in on this discussion as I also listen to Doug H., SQ in the past but not now, I turn off the podcast when he appears on Doug H. I also listen to Rick Wiles and Ted Broer. It seems like we all tune in to the same folks.
    While I do listen to each of their podcasts, I discern certain characteristics of each that make me wary. I try to get the good nourishment out of their words and leave the rest in the garbage.
    But the thing I appreciate most is your open honesty on several of the people that you have exposed that have apparently duped these others. When Ted said the Chacra stuff, my mouth dropped open, and when Doug praises his guests way overboard and thus gives them undue credibility I wonder about his judgement.

    In this current situation, I think if they are to be taken seriously, they should respond to your revelations in an accurate and thoughtful way. I just read the response to your post on the Steve Quayle alerts and he has lost all credibility with me. Not that I could even listen to him before as he is full of self love and pride and presents anyone who disagrees with him as a bad christian and evil.

    So keep doing what you do as we need you to reveal what is behind the scenes to keep these guys honest.

  40. John,

    I’ve been thinking a lot about this article.

    I listened to V, . Steve, and the Hagmann’s regularly while they were telling all the listeners about the grave economic situation we are living in. Every time V. was on I was convinced all hell would break loose the next day. Having been new to the alternative Christian media, I took them seriously, and trusted they were telling me what I needed to know.

    I lost my husband to cancer not long before I started listening, and was very concerned about how to survive what was coming without him. Long story short, I made some very poor decisions based on their warnings, ie…not investing my life insurance money, emptying accounts, etc. While I’ve been ok, I would definitely be better off financially if I had not taken their “advice” to heart.

    One thing I find very interesting is that the trackingmeroz article was posted on December 23, and I believe that was the last day that Joe Hagmann has been on their show. I thought it was a vacation, but a third week is very odd. No explanation from Doug that I’m aware of.

    And at the risk of sounding prejudicial, you would think a guy with the name Viigi Varghese would send up red flags to the “awake” Steve and Hagmann’s. Just sayin’…

    • Hi Angel,

      I suspect that my own purchase of gold and silver was slightly premature, because of the hysteria. It’s hard to say, since I was looking at a lot of different factors, independent of the ‘end of the world’ rhetoric.

      Over all, we lost money in the deal. But, I don’t mind the loss. I’ll probably be glad that I bought the little gold and silver that I have. We’ll see when everything falls apart.

      Remember, that someone must be the one to start first, and I never give advice that I do not follow.

      You can tell others that you have prepared for what is coming, and that’s important. A crash is coming. Preparing for the worst is a REALLY good idea.

      Keep up the good work, Angel!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  41. Mr. Little,

    After reading your post and the comments, why have you not spoken clearly about Steve Quayle and Doug Hagmann being the frauds that they are? It seems like you don’t want break your alliance with them or perhaps you are unsure. They created V, the Guerrilla Economist. They made many of the same kinds of statements he did before he appeared on the scene about an imminent economic collapse that could only be avoided by purchasing precious metals.

    Are you going to make a straight forward statement or will continue support them while simultaneously admonishing them? Can have it both ways?

    T Worthy
