The Sixth Trumpet and the Present Reality
I admire those who try to preserve a parliament and a constitution that no longer exists except in the imagination of their hearts. But we who are in Christ have the keys of faith which unlock the conspiracy of evil at work in our society. The day belongs to those able to grasp the truth of a desperate situation. I say day, because there is no future for society until Christ returns with the saints after the destruction of all life to establish His Millennial reign.
For many years before I became a Christian I planned to build or buy a yacht and sail away. Today, there is no away; nowhere to sail to; no hiding place except the bosom of Jesus. Money can insulate the very rich from much of the physical ugliness and growing violence of society as it approaches anarchy and the chaos planned to precede the introduction of the final phase of Lucifer's one world government. But security guards and steel bars constitute an illusionary world, not liberty; and the whole world is being gathered to the battle of the great day of God Almighty.
Jesus prophesied that between the Sixth and Seventh Vials in the days of the fourth Gentile world power, three unclean spirits like frogs would look behind themselves as these unclean creatures do, yearning for the past "glories" of the Imperial and Holy Roman Empires, for these unclean spirits called Fascism, Nazism and Communism come out of the mouth of the Dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet (Revelation 16:13-16) to gather the world to Armageddon. Brother Branham said these three isms will be subsumed into Communism, while all false religions will become subject to Catholicism. Jesus promised His second or 'parousia' Coming "as a thief" would take place towards the end of this period, when East and West are trying to reach an accommodation through the United Nations. It has, and they have (Daniel 2:40-45).
Alcohol, narcotics, over-eating, gambling, excessive exercise and television are pathetic, possibly subconscious attempts to avoid confronting reality. So too is music that produces measurable responses in the body's muscular system, brainwave patterns and hormone levels by synchronizing muscle coordination and control with the basic beat. Brainwave activity aligns with the rhythm and various hormones (specifically opiates and sex hormones) are released as a result of electrophysiological synchronization with the rhythm. No wonder people are 'stressed out'. They state their religion as Christian when they fill in a form, but where is that peace and rest, which passes all understanding"?
The point of these comments is to say, "Don't throw good things after bad." If you know you are in Christ and have a revelation of the lateness of the hour, and that this present world system will be destroyed in the next several years, don't invest your time and hopes on what you know is doomed. Invest your desire and energy in preparing yourself as a bride adorned for her husband by learning to do that which is pleasing to Jesus.
National foundations have been eroded by stealth and deceit, our genes are being leached by miscegenation, poisoned by chemical farming and hybrid foods that are not God's Word, and like Cain they cannot contain His Life. We no longer have functional constitutions and government is no longer based upon integrity and selfless, wise thought but Bolshevik "political correctness," reflex action and mind manipulating propaganda of the controlled media, education and entertainments.
The two central bases of economic and people control, banking and the media, fell long ago into the hands of the kings of the East (Revelation 16:12). The names presented to us as 'bosses' are only wretched pawns, such as Murdoch and Black. They serve the bigger purse or disappear like Robert Maxwell. Those who wish to survive and thrive economically will need to forsake loyalties and become global in outlook. Time runs out for those who cannot act.
The NWO is of the enemy, and it is almost here. But God has a way of escape provided for those prepared to surrender all to Him. The alternative is to surrender all to Rome and the bankers from the East.
Today's churches are like Samson who gave his heart to women and surrendered his Nazarite sign, his seal of separation to the Holy Spirit, to satisfy carnal desires. The Philistines are upon the churches, which have no strength in the Spirit with which to defeat the enemy.
So recognize the conditions of this day. Don't forsake your study of the Spoken Word Books. Don't fail to prove them, and my sermons with your Bible, and obey what It says do.
Once again, let's read Revelation 9:13-21, "And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a Voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, "Loose the four angels which are bound at the great river Euphrates". And the four angels who were in readiness for that hour and day and month and year were loosed to slay the third part of men. And the number of the cavalry was two hundred million: and I heard the number of them. And this is how I saw the horses in my vision, the riders wore breastplates the color of fire and jacinth and of brimstone: and the heads of the horses looked like the heads of lions, fire and smoke and brimstone issued from their mouths. By these three plagues a third part of man was slain by the fire, and smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For the power of the horses is in their mouths, and in their tails: for their tails were like the heads of serpents that strike and bite with fatal wounds. And the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold and silver and brass and stone, and of wood: which cannot either see or hear or walk: nor did they repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts".
Now regarding Israel's national Day of atonement. The blood of the most important sin offering (Christ) has been applied to the horns of the Golden altar. That incense might only be burned on living coals taken from the altar of burnt offering, clearly indicates the intercessory work of Christ is based upon His accomplished sacrificial work, and is acceptable only on that basis. The daily ministration at the temple culminated in the burning of incense, which symbolized the ministry of intercession. The Sixth Trumpet blasted towards the close of Christ's intercession, and covers His parousia to the Bride before the Seventh Trumpet announces the end of the Gentile dispensation.
In the temple ceremony, the animal ritual of the Day of Atonement reached its highest point when the high priest passed beyond the Veil with the atoning blood. After he had made an atonement for the Holy of Holies, he would make atonement for the Golden altar, then lay his hands on the live goat and confess over him the iniquities of the children of Israel. So Revelation 9:13-15 transpired before Revelation 8:1-5, because under the Seventh Seal Christ's intercession is over and Christ is gathering His elect into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. Under the Sixth Seal God in Daniel's Seventieth Week reveals Israel's Messiah as the scape or live goat which took their sins upon itself and bore them away.
Revelation 8 and 9 symbolize Israel's Seven Trumpet mysteries that will be revealed by the two prophets of Revelation 11. As indicated by their position in Scripture their revelation follows the manifestation of the Seven Seals of Revelation 6 and 8, however they manifest concurrently with the Seals.
In Revelation 9:14, the four angels bound in the river Euphrates are loosed to bring natural persecution upon the Israelites in World War II. In Old Testament times, almost all the great devastators of historical Israel - the Assyrians, Babylonians, and Persians - came from beyond the Euphrates. John takes this eastern territory as the symbolic source of devastation where Parthia was a power almost rivaling Rome and the only existing power which had tried its strength against Rome and had not been worsted in the encounter. The Parthian dominion then extended from Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, Iraq, Assyria, Northern Mesopotamia and Syria to the shores of the Arabian Sea. It lasted for nearly five centuries, commencing in the third century BC and terminating in the third century AD.
Although they are a Turanian "mingled" race like the Khazars as indicated in Daniel 2:40-45 the Parthians spoke Persian. An invasion from the East was something greatly feared by John's readers under the Roman empire, both in the past as it has been in the twentieth century. Up until the Armistice it came from the Parthia's kinfolk in the Ottoman Empire, whom Rome seem determined to exclude from the European Union; more recently from Iran and other remnants of the Parthian Empire whose cousins rule Israel. Rome's enemy in the early years of the Church is the enemy of her image under George II in the end of the Church dispensation. Daniel called modern Parthia "the kingdom of the South" (Daniel 11:40), Jesus called them "the kings of the East" (Revelation 16:13). Ezekiel 38 and 39 foretell the invasion of Israel in the last days by these people from beyond the Euphrates led by their cousins from "the kingdom of the North". John foretold how these cousins will unite in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week and destroy both Rome and her United States image (Revelation 18). Brother Branham called this "the trail of the Serpent" from the garden of Eden to perdition.
We learn from Daniel 10 that Persia and Greece were controlled by superhuman intelligence; by revelation we can say, so were Babylon and Rome, and so is Rome's image the United States of America. These four Gentile world empires are in reality one kingdom as confirmed by Christ's encounter with Satan. Matthew 4:8-10, "The Devil took Jesus up into a very high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world, and their splendor, saying to Him, All these things will I give You, if You will kneel down and worship me. Then Jesus said to him, Begone, Satan: for it is written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him alone." Here we see Satan controls every kingdom on earth, and can dispose of them to whom he will.
The four "angels" are messengers of God's divine wrath upon Israel which was expressed by the princes of Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome throughout the "times of the Gentiles" or, "the days of vengeance that all things that are written may be fulfilled" (Luke 21:22; Daniel 9:24; Acts 3:21). They commenced in 606BC when Nebuchadnezzar carried away Daniel with the first of the captives from Jerusalem to Babylon. and they will end with the consummation. As these four "princes" are supernatural, their vast army of 200 millions is likewise supernatural (Daniel 10; Zechariah 6).
Paul who was also conscious of the spirit world, said in Ephesians 3:8-11, "I who am less than the least of all saints, was made a minister by grace and the Supernatural Gift of God, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; and make all men, Judahite or Gentile, see the fellowship of the mystery of the unity of God and His elect in Christ, which from the beginning of the world has been hid in God, who created all things. And to manifest to the principalities and powers in heavenly places, His manifold wisdom in one finished Church, of both Judahite and Gentile, according to His eternal purpose in Christ Jesus our Lord".
Amos 3:3, "How can two walk together except they be agreed on the Word." God isn't doing It with smoke and mirrors. The church is being build by His grace in the faith of Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 6:10-12, "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the worldly rulers of the blindness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in the air".
Our fight is with the spiritual forces of Satan, the prince of the power of the air, and against his armies of flesh.
The four "destroying" angels and their armies that were bound are loosed at a precise moment in time: Armistice day. As Brother Branham explained, World War I would have become Armageddon and destroyed all life prematurely had He not caused it to stop in a mysterious way (Daniel 7:2-3; Revelation 7:1-3). World War I was the First Woe of Earth's rebirth, which is a threefold process like your first and second birth (I John 1:5-13). Two more woes follow in World Wars II and III: there will be no peace on earth until the Millennium (Matthew 24:8; Revelation 9:12; Isaiah 2:4; Micah 4:1-8). The authority of the four "angels" to kill is presently restricted to the third part of mankind so that under the Sixth Trumpet natural a persecution struck Israel to force them back to Palestine for their atonement. God deals with Israel as a nation in her own land. In spite of these plagues they have not repented of their materialism, idolatry and unclean living. Under the Sixth Seal this demonic power will bring a religious persecution upon the wise and foolish virgin, resulting in the martyrdom of all those without oil in their lamps.
Under the Sixth Trumpet, natural Israel and the so-called Jews were persecuted naturally by national force in order to fulfill Zionist goals (Min Hametzar, p. 92, by Rabbi Michael Dov Weissmandl ZT"L Dean of Nitra Yeshiva). In the all-wise purpose of God, this persecution was to force Israel back to the Promised Land where He can reveal Himself through the Message of the two prophets in Daniel's Seventieth Week. This revelation will separate the 144,000 elect descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob from the "mixed multitude" of Ashkenazim, and Israelites who are without faith.
The main result of World War I in the overruling all-wise purpose of God was the recovery of Jerusalem and the Holy Land from the Ottoman Empire. Brother Branham often said how the Balfour Declaration, that expressed British approval of Zionist ambitions in a letter of November 2, 1917, and General Allenby's capture of Jerusalem on December 9 of that year culminated in the establishment of the new State of Israel on May 14, 1948.
The creation of the state of Israel was one of the real as opposed to ostensible aims of World War II. This aim was a strategic objective of what we now recognize as the International Communist Conspiracy. Within hours of the ending of the British mandate in Palestine the US and Russia recognized the state of Israel. The Administrations of the CIS and its satellites, Israel and the USbut not their citizensare all aspects of the International Communist Conspiracy of the City of London. The strategic problem of the Conspiracy was to confront citizens of the US with a situation where it would be evidently impracticable for America to oppose militarily, action by Russia, firstly in the Middle and Far East, and then in Europe. The only alternative would be a NWO (as will be seen following the earthquake that sinks Los Angeles and Russia's invasion of mainland America). This is what Rowan Gaither, president of the Ford Foundation, confided personally to Norman Dodd, Director of Research for the Reece Committee of the US Congress in 1953, "Mr. Dodd, all of us here at the policy making level of the foundation have at one time or another served in the 0SS (the Office of Strategic Services [under the presidency of F.D. Roosevelt] the forerunner of the CIA), or the European Economic Administration. During those times, and without exception, we operated under directives issued by the White House. We are continuing [through the Truman presidency and into the Eisenhower presidency] to be guided by just such directives . . . . The substance of the directives under which we operate is that we shall use our grant-making power to so alter life in the United States that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union."
Perhaps this throws a little light upon why President Kennedy planned to close the CIA, which is actually a part of British Intelligence set up for Queen Elizabeth I by the Jew Sir Francis Walsingham, and consequently an emanation of the strong, long arm of "the City".
Under the Sixth Vial the river Euphrates was dried up. Euphrates was the Eastern border of the Roman Empire. That natural border has been destroyed by George IIare you watching developments in Iraq and Iran as Rome's image in the natural, the United States of America, "dries up" the Eastern defense of apostate Western Christendom "to prepare the way for the kings of the East?" Brother Branham tied Revelation 16:12-14 to Revelation 7:1-3, the antitype of Ezekiel 9 and explained how God has raised Communism to burn the apostate church and her image as He raised up Nebuchadnezzar to raze His Temple and take apostate Judea captive. He said the four angels are withholding this destruction until God has sealed the 144,000 Israelites who will be our personal servants. Like eunuchs in an Eastern palace they will follow the Bride wherever she goes.
The metaphoric drying up of the natural border of the Euphrates types the literal drying up of Rome's terrestrial authority, her creedal dogmatism, ritual, traditions and superstitions. Her infirmity permitted three unclean spirits like frogs: Fascism, Nazism and Communism to arise within her empire and challenge her mandate. Brother Branham said, these will all wind up in Communism and burn the Vatican and the United States with nuclear fire. The Sixth Trumpet loosed the four angels from Rome's authority "to slay the third part of man." That is, blood Israelites descended from Abraham, Isaac and Israel after their elect have been Sealed.
Under the Seventh Trumpet a revived Holy Roman Empire, her denominational daughters and Romanised Jews will confront 144,000 elect Israelites with a spiritual persecution, forcing the mark of the Beast unto martyrdom in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, precipitating a second uprising of Russia against Rome and her United States image, and the outpouring of God's wrath in Armageddon. This will take place under the Sixth Seal.
In Revelation 7:1-3 John, who represents Christ's end-time Bride, sees another vision, "And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree".
In the parenthesis of Revelation 7, the Bride receives a preview of what happens in the tribulation period after the Sixth Seal is opened. Four angels are standing at the four corners of the earth restraining the four winds. As four is the number of the earth, these portend universal war and strife.
"And I saw another Angel ascending from the East, having the Seal of the living God: and He cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the beast of the earth (the USA), and the beast of the sea, (Rome). Saying, Hurt not the earth, nor the sea, nor the trees (people), until we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads."
After the Armistice in which Germany was betrayed, the four angels made a form of peace by establishing the League of Nations to "hold the four winds." When that failed and World War II ensued they established the United Nations to "hold the four winds." It too is a failure hence the mayhem in Iraq, however such "failures" are intentional and according to plan, and these organizations are not instruments of peace but a perverse means by which international law will harvest and bind individual liberty and property under one totalitarian world government. Very soon earthquakes will sink Los Angeles and split the mount of Olives, enabling the four angels to loose "the four winds," in a brief World War III in which Israel and mainland USA will be invaded, and Rome will unite the world's false religions to restore peace. Her dollar having failed, the US will be made subject to a revived Holy Roman Empire, which will reach an agreement with the International Banksters to refinance the dollar on a gold standard, restoring value to hard assets and paper instruments, thus reviving manufacturing, trade, commerce and prosperity worldwide (Daniel 8:23-27; 9:27). The non-elect will do obeisance to Rome and her Devil incarnate pope, imploring him to accept the inaugural presidency of one world government (Revelation 13:1-10). He will establish his rule in Jerusalem as foretold in Daniel 11:45 and according to the Illuminati plans indicated by Israel's first Prime Minister, David ben Gurion. Zionism having accomplished its purpose of colonising Palestine for the grand scheme of the powers-that-be will be a spent force as will Islam, which I believe was established for the same purpose by the Roman Catholic church.
Brother Branham said, the four angels are the horse riders of the fourth Gentile world empire and that the world will "wind up finally in Catholicism" and when the ten leaders of the Black Nobility "receive power as kings one hour with the beast . . . and give their power and strength to the beast" (Revelation 17:12-13). But as "Scripture said to Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised you up, that I might show My power in you, and that My Name might be declared throughout all the earth," in the providence of God Rome will be destroyed. Communism was raised up to destroy the false church system. Brother Branham said, "Communism, Fascism, and Nazism. They'll all wind up out of Russia in Communism, and it will destroy Catholicism" (Revelation 17:16 18:20). The present-day rulers of the nations of Eastern and Western Europe that once comprised the Holy Roman Empire will unite in a revived Roman Empire, and although they will be restrained until the 144,000 elect Israelites have been born-again, they will disavow and destroy the beast of the sea, which is Rome, and the beast of the earth, which is the USA, according to the seventh of seven consecutive visions the Lord showed the Prophet in 1933.
In the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, when Rome breaks her covenant with the International Banksters and forces the mark of the beast, the ten divisions of the Old Roman Empire will revert to communism and bomb the Vatican. Armageddon will set in with Russia's annihilation of North America, moving the world toward the consummation (Revelation, 65:402-405; Ten Virgins, 445:111-113; Thyatira, 325:227-231; Church Age, 322:2-4; Seals, 542:5-543:2; Daniel, 28:117).
Revelation 17:16-17, "And the ten horns which you saw on the beast shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God has put in their hearts to fulfil His will, and to agree, and give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled" (i.e. Daniel 9:24).
Under the Sixth Trumpet, the Israelites have begun gathering into the Holy Land. Under the tribulation of the Sixth Seal the 144,000 receive redemption; and various classes of the "saved" are purged. Under the Sixth Vial, the evil trinity of the Dragon, the Beast and the false prophet is now uniting God's enemies under her mark of the beast; uniting nations, commerce, industries, religions, cultures and people against His revealed Word "as it was in the days of Noah" (Genesis 1:11; 6:1-4; Deuteronomy 32:8; Amos 3:3; Matthew 24:37). Thus competing factions and dynasties such as the Black Nobility, Fabian Society, Communism, Catholicism and Talmudism co-operate toward mutual objectives, yet each element is seeking its own advantage in gathering the world to a place of no return, called Armageddon.
Fascism and Nazism did wind up in Communism. The tragedy of opposition to Communism lies in a failure fully to understand what Communism actually is. Communism is a spirit, and the power-structure of a system of world government designed to replace the world government hitherto exercised through centralised international control of the financial system, which, since 1914, was largely directed to the destruction of the British Empire and nation, and to the building up of the Communist Empire as a means of rule by force. By 1945 the policy of World Dominion, once pursued mainly through the control of money, gold, and credit, had reached the stage where control of raw materials had become essential to its pursuit to a final and successful conclusion. Hence the constant insurrections in Africa, the Middle East and other resource rich lands, so that when the US dollar fails (as it will after the sinking of much of California), collapsing the world monetary system, overt world government will be open to those with power over the wealth of earth's natural resources.
Under the Seventh Vial the false bride of Christ will be stoned for her unfaithfulness (Revelation 16:17-21).
Revelation 9:16-19, "And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred million: and I heard the number of them. And I saw the horses in the vision, and their riders wore breastplates as red as fire, as blue as sapphire, as yellow as sulphur: and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths poured fire and smoke and sulphur. By these three plagues was the third part of men killed, by the fire, by the smoke, and by the sulphur that streamed from their mouths. For the horses' power lies in their mouths and in their tails: for their tails are like serpents, with heads, and with them they strike with fatal effect".
After his vision of the first three Gentile world kingdoms Daniel saw "in a dream, a fourth beast, dreadful, terrible, and exceedingly powerful, with great iron teeth: it devoured and tore its victims in pieces, and trod the remainder underfoot. It was more brutal than any of the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. . . The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom on earth (Rome), which shall be different from all other kingdoms (for it will be a brutal church kingdom impersonating the Kingdom of Michael, Christ), it shall devour the whole earth, and trample it down, and break it in pieces. His ten horns are ten kingdoms that shall arise out of his empire: and another shall rise after them who will be different from the former kingdoms, and he shall destroy three of them (the Vandals, Ostrogoths and Heruli). He shall speak great words against the Most High, and wear down the saints with persecution, and plan to change the sacred seasons and the Law: and they shall be given over to him until the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week" (Daniel 7:7, 23-25).
The vision of Revelation 9:16-19 was speaking of the persecution of natural Israel, describing weapons of modern warfare, specifically the battle tanks of World War II with flame throwers, cannon and machine guns.
Revelation 9:20-21, "But the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues did not repent of the works of their hands, so as to cease worshiping demons and idols of gold, and silver, bronze, stone, and wood: that can neither see nor hear nor walk: nor did they repent of their murders, or their sorceries, or their fornication, or their thefts".
"The rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues of fire, smoke and sulphur" are they who claim to be Israelites entitled to "cling to the horns of the altar" yet cling to mammon, claiming whatever they can get. bb960703.htm
