Jerusalem in the Midst of the Nations
God Bless you Brethren, our subject this-evening is Jerusalem and how God publicly chastised her people for two thousand five hundred years in the midst of their neighbors because of her unbelief and wickedness. Jerusalem is again becoming the center of the world as God prepares to return to Israel in Daniel's Seventieth Week. And in Jerusalem, the 144,000 Hebrew saints will be martyred and all those who come against Jerusalem, that is, the entire world, will be destroyed (Ezekiel 5:5; Zechariah 14:12-15).
Recently we spoke on "Creating Conditions for World War III." As I see Scripture, this war will not be Armageddon because Armageddon will destroy all life on earth; and it will not be a nuclear war. Armageddon, on the other hand, will surely commence with the atomic destruction of Rome and North America, but culminates in universal anarchy as laid out in the 1871 plans of Rothschild's World Revolutionary Movement (WRM) which is in actuality Free Masonry. And Brother Branham said some fanatic will set off the atomic powers that will destroy the world, as happened in the days of Noah when atomic power was unleashed, moving the earth off its axis, and causing rain for the first time since man was upon the earth. Only since the deliberate economic destruction of Russia's has personal nuclear terrorism become technically possible and affordable.
Quoting Advisory Board member for the Center for National Policy and former Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) Director, Harvard's Graham Allison Jr. (BB/CFR/TC): "There are suitcase-style nuclear weapons in the former Soviet union. Some criminal elements in Russia, not the Russian government itself . . . would steal nuclear weapons, would sell them to a terrorist group," he said, (showing a photo of a Hamas leader in wheel chair). "The weapons would then be brought to an American city and would be used in a terrorist fashion. And God forbid, I believe that it is something we unfortunately will live to see."
This is certainly the death wish behind the policies of the US Administration, and the WRM behind it are bringing it upon the Christ-rejecting citizens of America with a vengeance.
Zechariah 14:12-13, Revelation 16:10-11 and 19:1-20 describe the nuclear destruction of Rome and America after the incarnate Pope breaks the Agreement Daniel and Jesus said he would make with the "merchants of the earth" or self-styled Jews, who, together with the "kings of the earth" or Black Nobility, will then turn Communist annihilate both Rome and North America"all the people who fought against Jerusalem . . . in one hour." The atomic radiation will melt men's eyes in their sockets, and consume their flesh as they stand. Then every man will fight his fellow. This anarchy is planned by the World Revolutionary Movement. This destruction of Rome and America will be transformed into the battle of Armageddon resulting in the destruction of all life on earth.
Clearly Satan, who is the sum of beauty and wisdom, inspired Amschel Mayer Rothschild when he devised these evil plans in 1773, because they describe what God foretold His prophets Zechariah, Daniel and John. But his interpretation is carnal and not revelation because it was based on the Talmud. Rothschild, Weishaupt, Moses Holbrook, Pike, Mazzini, Lemmi, Lenin, Manuilsky and Alister Crowley, and all those evil men knew full well what God had foretold in His unchanging Word, but not having the Spirit, they interpreted the letter, and prophesied hate, and the pride that blinded Lucifer, instead of God's righteousness and love.
An invasion of America by Russia will precede Russia's destruction of Rome and America by perhaps four years. This will be World War III, and I believe it is very close. I expect World War III will start immediately after the earthquake that marks the close of the Gentile dispensation sinks Los Angeles and destroys Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock. With Russian support, Islam will invade Israel, and Russia will later invade the United States. I expect World> War III will be restricted to conventional weapons and last no longer than perhaps six weeks. The Pope will stop this War through a world religious confederation, bringing peace and one world government under Rome.
Daniel 11:45, "And Rome will establish its splendid court between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him." (Because after Rome breaks the Agreement with the Jewish money-power in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, the kings of the earth will hate her and burn her with atomic fire, and no one will be able to come near to help for fear of the atomic falloutRevelation 17:16; 18:9-10, 17-20).
By the grace of God we'll see just how close we are to World War III, and to Rome establishing a headquarters for her reconstituted empire in the City of Jerusalem where our Lord was crucified.
History is revised by the historian whose goal is not to reveal the past, but to mold the future. This is why those who are able to control the past can control the future. Therefore the past is very important in revealing the future to Bible believers. Because God never changes His ways, if we pattern after the historical shadows and types we will be able to recognize prophecies of future events as they begin to unfold, and to know if we are in the revelation or merely guessing.
Let's read one of the visions John saw on the Island of Patmos and which will soon come to pass. Revelation 13:11-18, "Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; [this was the United States of America]; and he had two horns like a lamb, [indicating the separation of church and state powers], and he spoke as a dragon, exercising all the authority of the first beast [Rome]), on her behalf [indicating the coming union of church and state], and requires all people worldwide to deify and worship the first beast whose deadly wound was healed. [One world government restoring the Roman Empire and forcing one world religion].
And John [who types Christ's end-time Bride] saw the US perform miraculous signs like making fire come down from space to earth in public view, deceiving all people by means of these miracles he was authorized to do on behalf of Rome; commanding them to erect an image or a union of apostate Protestant churches] to Rome, who was fatally wounded yet was alive and ruling her world empire".
Spiritually, and per capita, the West is primarily a grouping of Catholic-controlled [or Papal] States. The majority of the world's Catholic population is distributed as follows: Europe 41%, North America 20%, South America 26%, Asia, Australia and Oceania 8%, Africa 3% and elsewhere 2%. On-side with Rome are millions of Protestants, holding the same Apostle's Creed, catechism and water baptism, and worshiping the same trinity of gods].
"And US state power stood by Rome's [Protestant] image to enforce her commands, ensuring that all who refuse to worship the image of the beast should be killed. By threat of armed reprisal America forced everyone regardless of culture, race, gender or socioeconomic group to receive a mark on their right hand or on the forehead: so that no man could buy or sell, unless he had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let he who has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty six."
We know that the mark in the hand signified serving or obeying the will of Rome whilst the mark in the forehead indicated accepting her dogma. So the mark of the beast today is what it has been from the garden of Eden where the Devil-incarnate Serpent deceived Eve with carnal reasoning against the revealed Word of God, or faith. The most commonly accepted mark of the beast is Rome's so-called "Holy Trinity" which is unscriptural paganism from Babylon.
During the coming Tribulation, Rome will force her Trinity worship upon all. Those who refuse will lose all social privileges, become destitute, and eventually be killed by the apostate Roman Catholic and (once) Protestant churches. This will be the fate of 144,000 elect Israelites, betrayed by their kinsmen and self-styled Jews newly converted to Catholicism, and also the fate various classes of the "saved."
666 is the number of man who was created on the sixth day. This man will be Rome's Pope whom Satan will incarnate once he is cast down to earth. Thereafter he is called the beast, and he will rule from Jerusalem as the prophets foretold (Isaiah 14; Ezekiel 28; Daniel 11, II Thessalonians 2).
Now as we recite the following recent history you will notice that none of our world leaders are nationalists, not even the Israelis. All are internationalist, with a globalist, one world government agenda. And although not overtly declared, at the head of this NWO but seldom mentioned by name, is the Vatican.
In 1975 the Houston Chronicle reported US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger had proposed "Jerusalem become an international city with the control of holy places and the religious administration being given to the pope." Since then, the Vatican has itself proposed moving from Rome to Jerusalem, and has held numerous meetings to that effect with high-ranking Ashkenazim-Jewish officials of the Marxist State of Israel. Once Archbishop of New York, Cardinal John O'Connor, is (or was) Vatican envoy to Israel.
Speaking to the new Jordanian ambassador to the Holy See in Rome on May 28, 1998, Pope John Paul II favored settling the status of Jerusalem by the year 2000. "The long history of the city of Jerusalem, filled with tribulations, will reach a new threshold in the year 2000, with the dawn of the third millennium of Christianity," he said. "It is my fervent hope that this may lead to a formal recognition, with international guarantees, of the unique and sacred identity of the Holy City."
The Pope had earlier stated his desire to visit Jerusalem in 2000. In a related development, Sheikh Fawzi Fadel Zifzaf, chairman of the Committee for a Dialogue Between Religions, and the highest authority of Sunni Islam, traveled to Rome to sign a document promoting the Christian-Islamic dialogue (EIR June 12, 1998 p.58).
The Vatican and Israel
According to Journalist, Barry Chamish in Jerusalem, Shimon Peres made very a weird deal with the Vatican. Consider the evidence:
"On September 10, 1993, just three days before the signing of the Declaration of Principles in Washington, the Italian news magazine La Stampa reported that part of the peace deal with Palestinian officials was an UNWRITTEN understanding that the Vatican would receive political authority over the Old City of Jerusalem by the end of the millennium. The newspaper reported that Shimon Peres had promised the Pope to hand over the holy sites of Jerusalem the previous May and that Arafat had accepted the agreement.
("The previous May" is THIS coming May, 1999. So we should expect violent opposition from the Israeli community and overseas Jews).
In March 1994, the Israeli news magazine Shishi published an interview with Mark Halter, a French intellectual and close friend of Shimon Peres. He said he delivered a letter from Peres to the Pope the previous May, within which Peres offered the Vatican hegemony over the Old City of Jerusalem. The article detailed Peres's offer which essentially turned Jerusalem into an international city overseen by the Holy See.
In March 1995, the radio station Arutz Sheva announced that it had received a cable sent by the Israeli Embassy in Rome to the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem outlining the handover of the Old City of Jerusalem to the Vatican. Two days later Haaretz published the cable on its front page. The Foreign Ministry explained that the cable was genuine but someone had whited out the word "not." i.e. We will not transfer authority to the Vatican. Incredibly, numerous B'nei B'rak rabbis who had canceled Passover meetings with Peres over the issue of the cable accepted the explanation and reinvited him to their homes.
Once Labor was in power, negotiations with the Vatican began immediately with Foreign Minister Peres sending his Deputy Yossi Beilin to Rome to hammer out an agreement.
When it was announced in late 1993, the public was told that many of the clauses were to remain secret. However, some clauses were leaked, leading to the following consequences.
The Foreign Ministry's Legal Affairs Spokesperson, Esther Samilag, publicly complained about "various capitulations" to the Vatican. She was immediately and suspiciously transferred to a post at the Israeli Embassy in Katmandu, Nepal.
MK Avraham Shapira announced in the Knesset that he had information that all Vatican property in Jerusalem was to become tax exempt and that large tracts of real estate on Mount Zion were given to the Pope in perpetuity.
Jerusalem's Deputy Mayor Shmuel Meir announced that he had received "information that properties promised to the Vatican would be granted extra-territorial status." Perhaps unconnected, but Meir died later at the hands of a Palestinian truck driver who was never prosecuted. Not even for dangerous driving.
Beilin was forced to answer the accusations. He admitted, "Included in the Vatican Agreement is the issue of Papal properties in Israel that will be resolved by a committee of experts that has already been formed." If so, this committee has not since released any proof of its existence.
With all this in mind, how do we interpret the Vatican's current position on Jerusalem? The following report was circulated by MSA News.
"VATICAN CITY, June 14, 1997 (VIS) Archbishop Renato Martino, apostolic nuncio and Holy See permanent observer to the United Nations, spoke June 9 on the status of Jerusalem at the New York headquarters of the Path to Peace Foundation.
The archbishop addressed members of this foundation as well as US members of theEquestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem.
He began by briefly summarizing the "well-known and long-standing position of the Holy See with regard to Jerusalem. He stated that Jerusalem "for us, of course, along with the rest of the Holy Land, is that special link between heaven and earth, that place where God walked and ultimately died among men. And of course we recognize that others revere Jerusalem as the city of David and the prophets and the city known to Mohammed . . . It is a spiritual treasure for all of humanity, and it is a city of two peoples, Arabs and Jews, and of the three monotheistic religions, Christianity, Judaism and Islam."
Archbishop Martino added that "in recent years it has been increasingly difficult to break through the political and MEDIA-imposed stranglehold on the question of Jerusalem." He recounted Jerusalem's recent history, recalling in particular the UN's General Assembly Resolution 181 of 1947 calling for Jerusalem to be considered a 'corpus separatum' under the Trusteeship Council of the United Nations," a resolution which Israel accepted.
He pointed out that, in addressing the gridlock which has resulted from the 1967 Israeli occupation of East Jerusalem, "the Holy See has therefore advocated the granting to Jerusalem of an 'internationally guaranteed special statute. That is the phrase used by Pope John Paul II in his 1984 Apostolic Letter Redemptionis Anno".
This statute "asks that regardless of how the problem of sovereignty is resolved and who is called to exercise it, there should be a supra-national and international entity endowed with means adequate to insure the preservation of the special characteristics of the City, its Holy Places, the freedom to visit them, its religious and ethnic communities, a guarantee of their essential liberties, and its city plan."
The apostolic nuncio recalled the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Holy See and Israel in 1993, when both signed the "Fundamental Agreement." He noted Article 4 of this agreement where "both the Holy See and Israel affirm their continuing commitment to the Status quo in the Christian Holy Places."
He also spoke of the problems sparked by Israel's recent authorization of "a project for the construction of settlements in occupied territory in East Jerusalem" for which "there was wide-spread international condemnation." This issue, he reminded those present, was brought before the UN Security Council on March 7 and March 21 of this year, but without resolution "because the sole country on the Security Council which opposed the Resolution was the United States."
An Emergency Session of the General Assembly, "organized only nine other times in the history of the United Nations" was held on April 24-25. The Holy See delegation was contacted and asked for suggestions for a Resolution, Archbishop Martino said. And he recounted the meetings, rough drafts of proposals and negotiations which followed.
The approved texts of the eventual Resolution, he underlined, contained "those points championed by the Holy See. . . . The General Assembly has here called for 'internationally guaranteed provisions'the equivalent of the 'internationally guaranteed special status' called for by Pope John Paul II. This is particularly noteworthy because in this case, the Arab delegations all voted for this Resolution and therefore for this provision."
"The Holy Places within Jerusalem," concluded Archbishop Martino, "are not merely museum relics to be opened and closed by the dominant political authority, no matter who that might be at any given moment. They are living shrines precious to the hearts and faith of believers."
We ask, "Could that supra-national entity which will oversee the International city of Jerusalem be the Vatican as Peres promised?" (Barry Chamish: email@example.com)
In a more recent Article called, "Israel In The New Millennium," Barry Chamish writes:
"Don't believe anything you're told by the mainstream media. It is not for me to argue in favor of the existence of the New World Order conspiracy. What is inarguable is that literally every American politician who left a profound legacy on the Middle East, and especially Israel, was and is a member of the Manhattan think tank considered the headquarters of the NWO, the Council On Foreign Relations (CFR). A short list of some of the better known characters would include Henry Kissinger and his deputy Joseph Sisco, Cyrus Vance, James Baker, Warren Christopher, Walter Mondale, Madeleine Albright et al. Beneath this level of public exposure lies an insidious cabal of CFR members such as Edgar Bronfman, head of the World Jewish Congress and Henry Seigman, chairman of the American Jewish Congress, who exert a powerful influence on Israeli and Diaspora leaders and ultimately on Jewish public opinion. All the evidence more than just indicates that the current Middle East peace process was hatched by the CFR and is promoted with all the necessary weapons at its disposal. This peace process is a surefire formula for war . . . and soon. The year 2000 will most likely see Israel and its neighbors caught up in bloody turmoil."
(When the CFR was created, its core membership was international bankers and their lawyers. Only later were other classes of intellectuals admitted to round it out. But, the CFR is not American in conception. It is the little sister of the British RIIA, a creature of the City of London).
The Oslo AccordsMade in New York
In August 1993, the Israeli government headed by Yitzhak Rabin announced that it was on the verge of signing a "peace" accord with the PLO. The American public was told that Washington was completely caught off guard by the announcement and was even angry for being left out of the negotiations held in Oslo.
Later testimony by actors in the Oslo Accord tell a very different story. In February, 1994 I interviewed one of the two Israeli Oslo negotiators, Ron Pundak. He told me that, "From the first day we arrived in Oslo we coordinated our negotiations with the State Department. At the end of each day's sessions, we reported back to Washington. Warren Christopher was very skeptical at first, but later became most helpful to us."
In August 1995, Rabin told NY Times columnist William Safire that he never wanted to become involved with this peace process. He admitted that he was ordered to by President George Bush at a meeting in Kennebunkport, Maine in September, 1992. Bush demanded that Rabin, "prepare the Israeli public for some painful withdrawals."
The CFR had long before corrupted Rabin, in large part through his "friendship" with Kissinger and now was calling in its cards. The same grooming and corrupting process has taken place throughout the top rungs of the Israeli political leadership, including with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu who has now isolated himself from his government by carrying on what Rabin was forced to begin: Israel's weakening and then demise.
Goals of "Peace"
Although Rabin was the tool to sell Oslo to the Israeli public, the ultimate goals of this peace process were taken over by Foreign Minister Shimon Peres and his deputy, Yossi Beilin. Ron Pundak noted, "Beilin doesn't believe in borders. He thinks they are the root cause of conflict and doesn't care if Israel loses hers."
Shimon Peres advanced such thinking with a program he called The New Middle East. In his vision, Israel would give up its present borders, including its most vital strategic positions, to join in an economic union with its Arab neighbors.
[You can just imagine what a recipe for war that would be with the Arabs having to merge with a people weaned on Talmudic hatred].
To secure the pullback of Israel's present borders to those of 1948, some 200,000 Jews would have to be removed from their homes. The Israeli government, through Beilin, obligated itself to carrying out a plan of delegitimization, in fact demonization, of the Jewish residents of the Administered Territories and later the Golan Heights, as a prelude to their forced removal.
The secret clauses of Oslo were leaked by an alarmed employee of a government ministry, first to Jerusalem Post reporter Steve Rodan. After a three month fact checking period, the Post printed the less frightening details on its front page and suffered expensive government retaliation immediately after.
Through an intermediary, I was given the details of what the Post backed off printing, which I published in my newsletter "Inside Israel." Beilin's plan called for a covert war against the "settlers" or Jewish residents of disputed territories, which included incriminating the innocent in timely outrages and murdering public figures to instill terror and uncertainty. This plan ultimately led to the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
When these charges were first published, there was widespread disbelief that the political leadership of Israel could be so evil. Today in Israel, thanks to the bungled Rabin murder, perhaps a third of the public accept that this covert war did take place and is still taking place.
It is inevitable, that by the year 2000, the festering coverup of the Rabin assassination will finally break down. When the truth comes out, that Rabin's convicted assassin was a minor fall guy for a high level international conspiracy, and that the leaders of the ruling Labor government carried out the hit, a sense of utter dismay and abandonment will erode the very foundations of Labor Zionism. The effects will be profound beyond immediate comprehension. One would hope that the ultimate result will be a massive reform of the Israeli political system.
What the Outsiders Want
In July, 1997, the CFR finally revealed its plans for Israel in its Middle East Task Force report, headed by Henry Seigman. All doubts about the CFR's intentions evaporated in the report. It was recommended that Israel withdraw to its 1948 lines, that Jerusalem be divided and that half the city be the capital of a Palestinian state. The world now knew for a written fact what were the ultimate goals of the diplomacy of CFR members Albright and Clinton. The task force report was a formula for guaranteed war.
And, in fact, on a global plane, what has been done to Israel is no different than what was previously and subsequently arranged for Bosnia, Croatia, Rwanda, Somalia, Kosovo et al. Bitter enemies were armed to the teeth and through diplomacy, forced to cooperate with each other elbow to elbow. One spark was all that was needed to explode numerous peoples placed in this situation recently and that spark will fly in Israel before or during the year 2000. Probably several months before.
Superficially, Israel is just another in a long line of nations chosen for chaos in preparation for the international change of status quo called the New World Order. But there is far more to the story and it centers around Jerusalem.
There is much symbolism surrounding Jerusalem and the end of the millennium and not a few people want a piece of the city when the flames die down. First among them is the Vatican. In a story broken first by La Stampa in Italy and Shishi in Israel, and later verified with documented proof in Haaretz, in May 1993, Shimon Peres promised the pope hegemony of the Old City of Jerusalem by the end of the year 2000. In October of 1998, the Vatican forced out Hebrew University, the tenants of a large property they own in West Jerusalem and are now building an embassy to be opened prior to the millennium. Barely a month later, the Holy See demanded a say in the final status of Jerusalem as dictated by the first Oslo Accord.
If the Vatican gets its way and inherits political control over the holy sites of Jerusalem, it will be greeted by many hundreds of thousands of Protestant groups from America and Europe who are planning to descend on the city prior to and during the year 2000 in anticipation of a Messianic return. To satisfy these hopes, prophecies of Gog and Magog may have to be self-fulfilled.
The War of the Millenium
War is a near certainty and numerous scenarios could presage it. Most likely it boils down to the PLO and its sister organizations creating some atrocity too big for Israel to ignore. Troops will try to crush the Palestinian Authority and neighboring Arab states will attack Israel on land or with missiles to defend Islamic honor. Israel, now withdrawn from many of its most strategic defensive positions, and with an army of 50,000 PLO "policemen" standing mere meters from its cities will be overwhelmed and forced to use unconventional weapons. The big powers will then step in, send foreign (i.e. UN) troops en masse to keep the peace, dictate terms over the sovereignty of Jerusalem and greet the new millennium with a New World Order."

Luke 21:24-26, "Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars . . ."
Describing photographs of the total eclipse of the moon (on December 30, 1963), preceding the Pope's visit to Jerusalem (between January 4-6, 1964), Brother Branham said, "Christ was now outside the church. Here is the sign in the sky. The last eclipse of the moon was a total eclipse. It waned to a total darkness in seven stages. In the seventh stage, the total darkness came as the Pope of Rome (Paul the Sixth) went to Palestine to make a holy tour of Jerusalem. He was the first pope to ever go to Jerusalem. The pope is named Paul the Sixth. Paul was the first messenger and this man goes by that name. Notice it is the sixth, or the number of man. This is more than a coincidence. And when he went to Jerusalem, the moon or the church went into total darkness. This is it. This is the end. This generation shall not pass away until all be fulfilled. Even so Lord Jesus, come quickly!" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 359).
Thirty-six years later we see the Vatican is taking control of Jerusalem as the Bible foretold.
Daniel 9:27, "And he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week:" (The Pope will make an Agreement with the self-styled Jewish money power to refinance the world money system and restore world trade and commerce. This Agreement will be made after the close of the Gentile dispensation and after that invasion of the USA is put down and world peace has been restored by the Pope. The Jews will re-establish the sacrifice and temple worship, which will gather sincere followers of the Old Covenant, for Israel's two prophets with the anointings that were upon Moses and Elijah will cast the Net of God's Word into their midst).
"And in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."
Praise the Lord. After three and a half years these two prophets will have delivered their Message; the international bankers will have restored the world financial system, having remonentised gold under Rome's control (Revelation 17:13), and at the dedication of a new temple, the Devil-incarnate Pope will declare his own deity. Then he will force the mark of the beast and compulsorily convert everyone to trinitarianism (or Romanism) on pain of death, martyr Israel's two prophets, and terminate his Agreement with the Jewish money power.
With Rome taking charge of Old Jerusalem in the days of Christ's 'parousia' as it was in the days of His first Coming, Scripture is about to be fulfilled. Jesus said, "the generation who see Israel restored to the Promised Land would not die of old age until the Millennium comes in?" He said, "Jerusalem will be trodden down by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled," or until the last empire, Rome, is destroyed.
Rome is to be destroyed by her European supporters, the kings of the earth, hating her, and turning Communist, bombing both Vatican City State and her natural image, the USA, off the face of the earth. But that's in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, many years after the Church has been translated.
David Ben Gurion who knew the plans of the World Revolutionary Movement wrote in "Look" Magazine, January 16, 1962, "With the exception of the USSR as a federal Eurasian State, all other continents will become united in a world alliance, at whose disposal will be an international police force. All armies will be abolished and there will be no more wars. In Jerusalem, the United Nations (a truly United Nations) will build a shrine of the prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the supreme court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah."
(The "times of the Gentiles" continues after the close of our dispensation at the earthquake or Seventh Trump which destroys the "abomination that makes desolate,"the Mosque of Omar or Dome of the Rock, to the consummation. Although the Gentiles no longer tread down the holy place, and Israel can restore the sacrifice and oblation, Rome will later stop it and the city will be given over to the Gentiles until the ministry of Israel's two prophets is fulfilledRevelation 11:1-3).
Some more signs after the earthquake that sinks Los Angeles at the close of the Gentile dispensation. Luke 21:25-26, ". . .and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken."
Brother Branham taught that the earthquake would be accompanied by volcanic activity, with tidal waves sweeping the world, breaking along the ocean shores, killing thousands and washing away parts of cities, breaking along the Great Lakes upon Chicago and even up the Mississippi to Kentucky. Can you imagine Sydney Opera House and the Olympic Games Site. (The Pillar of Fire, 53-0509; The Infallibility of God's Word, 56-0405; The Ark, 22:172-174; Jehovah Jireh, 56-1209e; Everlasting Life and How to Receive It, 26:208).
By God's grace we can discuss this further next week. I think it's enough that we see Israel has now been in the Homeland 51 years. The youngest of those who witnessed her return were at the Age of accountability in 1948; they turn 63 this year. Seven years remain for Israel after the close of the Gentile dispensation and seventy years is a life span. God said that generation would not expire through old age before the Millennium. Whatever God has in store, we are close. Rome is now building "its splendid court between the seas in the glorious holy mountain," enthroned in Jerusalem, on the sides of the North. bb990203.htm
