History Repeats Itself
This parody of II Kings 20:14-18 makes a point, "Isaiah asked John Howard, of Australia, "What did these men want? and where are they from?" And he said, "They are our born enemy from Indonesia."
Isaiah asked, "What have they seen in your Kingdom?" John Howard replied, "Everything. I showed them our full inventory, including our armory. I've trained and equipped their troops, shared all our defence plans, educated their young people, guaranteed their debts to the IMF and World Bank, expatriated our industry to their land, relinquished sovereignty over hundreds of billions of dollars of proven oil, gas and mineral reserves, and tens of thousands of square miles of our continental shelf. There is nothing I have not done to buy their friendship."
Then said Isaiah to the Prime Minister, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, The day will come, when everything your forefathers have built until now shall belong to Indonesia. Australians shall be captured; you have made them eunuchs."
Indonesia is but a pawn in a rich man's game. So in Australia. The difference is, we have known their plans for at least a hundred-and-fifty years. The Indonesians have not. We have been check-mated in a no-win situation because we were too ashamed of Christ to stand upon His Word and tried instead to make friends with the world.
Our divided multi-racial nation is a nominal Christian white pawn to be set against a Muslim nation of colored pawns when the Mount of Olives is split asunder by earthquake, destroying the Mosque of Omar, and Los Angeles and 1,500x3-400 miles of California sink beneath the Pacific at the start of Daniel's Seventieth Week. That friends, will be a very brief World War III. Our treacherous unbelieving politicians, blinded by their egos and eager for praise have sold-out Australia, as Indonesia's leaders have sold-out their people to the elite controlling all the moves on the Chess board.
Australia is caught in the trap set by those who own our political parties, lock, stock and barrel. Our politicians sought popularity with mammon, to create Satan's Eden here on earth through the lure of "peace" and United Nations. But how can there be peace when God has placed ENMITY between us and those who planned and control the U.N., and with many of our neighbors? Like many American politicians, ours are the worst money can buy. And purchased they are. They sold-out the principles and the wisdom of our founding fathers to the enemy who created the United Nations, Nazism, Communism, fractional reserve banking and miscegenation "as it was in the days of Noah".
These people who planned three world wars and three revolutions are Satan's Synagogue, the advisers of our Australian government. The United Nations is their fail-safe way of producing a bloodbath (Genesis 3:15; Amos 3:3). They plan to bring a New World Order out of CHAOS. And to accomplish this in two stages.
After World War III, Rome will rule. In the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, the third revolution between atheistic Communism and religious people of the world will produce a further bloodbath and introduce "the pure Luciferian religion". Instead it will culminate in Armageddon and the destruction of all life on earth (Malachi 4:1-3; Revelation 20:5).
Brother Branham said, "When atomic bombs in Russia, and all kinds of missiles and things are hanging in hangers, the U.N. is sinking and all the nations are against one another, we're trying to buy friendship. You can't buy fellowship and friendship. Certainly. A marriage that's built up on something like that will never hold.
There's no more national security... that bomb will blow a hole in the ground a hundred and fifty feet deep, and a hundred miles square... So you can't dig down and get away from it. There's only One shelter that you can get under... Go up above it: the rapture coming... You don't have to think great big nations like Russia. Little bitty nations can do it. We're just at the end of the road.
We're selling a whole lot of stuff to one nation, trying to buy friendship with our money. And the very Indian that we've taken the land from, we're starving to death out yonder on the prairie. Taking his sheep away from him and letting him live out there in a tent with TB and everything else. And then sending money overseas, calling it national defence, trying to buy friendship... trying to tax people to get money to send over yonder to buy friendship with our enemies. They're throwing it back in our face. One world war, two world wars, and still moving on to a third one.
Paying other nations to be our buddies, and we find out they've turned heels against us just as soon they can... And you can't buy friendship with money. Friendship is a gift of God."
Australia's politicians have been so busy serving mammon they know not Genesis 1:11; 3:15 and Matthew 24:37-51, or even John 3:16-18.
Corrupt Indonesian politicians and businessmen own many thousands of square miles of our Northern Territory. Ranches bigger than the whole state of Texas! Australia has trained the Indonesian Army. We refitted and gave them our naval patrol boats. We gave them our good weapons, re-arming our infantry with guns that have plastic components which melt, rendering the guns unserviceable. We dismantled our munitions plants and Indonesia supplies the ammunition for our useless small arms.
When our troops go in and fight they will die. We lost last year's training exercise against the Indonesians on our own soil. What will happen if we fight Indonesian troops on their soil? Noted security analyst, Alan DuPont, considers such a confrontation would be "suicidal".
There are over 30,000 Indonesian troops in Timor. Indonesia's army numbers 500,000. We can't sustain 3000 troops (The Australian September 9, 1999, p. 13). Lieutenant Colonel Martin Hamilton-Smith said, "Australia... would struggle to sustain on operations a single battalion of around 1000" (The Australian, June 20, 1997).
For decades Indonesian children have been taught that Northern Australia is a part of Indonesia and it is colored green in their atlases. When we see Indonesian troops on our soil the land will be colored red with Australian blood.
The Gospel has traveled the globe. East and West have met. How do you like the smiling face of multiculturalism? The Asianization of Australia has divided us into a indefensible nation of tribes.
Multiculturalism is a euphemism for mult-racialism which resulted from the original sin. (Read your Bible, or Talmud. We are not all of Adam's race; miscegenation is accursed of God). Australia once had a selective immigration policy; our homogeneous society enjoyed the highest living standard in the world just twenty-years after Federation. If God destroyed the world with a Flood because of miscegenation, He can not overlook this sin today (Genesis 6:1- 4; Luke 17:26-27)? It's a sign of the end.
Arafat: Palestine State in 2000
Italy -- Palestinian President Yasser Arafat said Sunday September 5, 1999 that according to the guarantees given by the United States and the declaration of Berlin, a Palestinian State will be declared in 2000 even if Palestinians fail to reach agreement with Israel.
Speaking to reporters on his return from a visit to the Vatican, Arafat said, "There is a very important declaration from the EU, another very important declaration from the Japanese government and also from President Clinton, from Russia and also from China and from the Non-Aligned Movement countries supporting this line."
Under the terms of the new peace accord signed in Egypt Saturday with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, Palestinians are unable to declare an independent state unilaterally until at least September 2000 -- the target date for completion of final status negotiations. The new accord which revised the long-stalled Wye River land-for-security deal, contains provisions for interim Israeli pullbacks from more of the West Bank (these could begin this week), the release of Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails (which has also begun) and new Palestinian security steps.
The 70-year-old Palestinian leader spent more than an hour with Pope John Paul at his summer residence, south of Rome, to explain details of the agreement with Israel. The Israelis have said they expect the Pope in the Holy Land at the end of March 2000.
Catholics to make Millennium Apology
The Roman Catholic Church will start "a new page of its history" in 2000 by seeking forgiveness for its past errors, injustices and human-rights abuses, the Pope said yesterday.
Speaking at his weekly general audience, the Pope did not list the Church's errors, but previous Vatican documents have spoken of seeking forgiveness for its past treatment of Jews, the Inquisition and for human-rights abuses.
He said: "As the Church looks to the great Jubilee of the year 2000, she is aware of her continual need of purification and penance. She therefore wishes to ask pardon for the sins and weaknesses of her children down the ages."
Catholics will mark a day of "Request for Forgiveness" on March 8, 2000. It is one of many theme days the Church has chosen for Millennium celebrations between December 24, 1999, and January 6, 2001. In a document last year, the Vatican apologized for Catholics who failed to do enough to help Jews during the Holocaust, and acknowledged centuries of Catholic preaching of contempt for Jews.
The Sign of Rising Damp
Changes in the level of wells and water tables can signify impending earthquakes. The San Fernando Valley east of Los Angeles is an inland sea basin as proven by marine fossils found in the sedimentary strata. Erosion of the San Bernardino and Santa Monica mountains has covered the valley floor with water-saturated alluvium. That is what makes earthquakes here are so devastating. The fill behaves as a fluidised bed, magnifying the intensity of seismic waves by a factor of 2 to 1000 and causing the water to rise and the alluvium and other solids, like buildings, to sink. This happened in an earthquake I witnessed in the Philippines about ten years ago.
Perhaps earth's crust is rising beneath the valley floor due to an intrusion of magma. This might explain why Los Angeles is migrating toward Pasadena and why the water table is rising despite the fact it is summer when there is no rain and any runoff from the nearby mountains is more than offset by heavy water use in summer, drastically lowering the water table.
Los Angeles experiences over 200 micro and mini earthquakes each day (Charlotte King).
Prophesying, "Los Angeles will be in the bottom of the sea," Brother Branham said, "Since that earthquake, there is a two or three-inch crack that come in the earth, starting in Alaska, goes around through the Aleutian Islands, comes out about a hundred and fifty or two hundred miles in the sea, comes back up at San Diego; takes in California, or Los Angeles, and comes out again just below the northern part of California there, a little place called San Jose, just below there" (Ashamed 9:52-54).
"Oh, United States, United States, how that God would've hovered
you as a hen does its brood, but you would not." Now, this Voice is going from coast to coast, from north to south and east to west. How God would've hovered you, but you would not. Now, your time has come.
Nations are breaking; the world is falling apart. Fifteen hundred mile chunk of it, three or four hundred miles wide, will sink maybe forty miles down into that great fault out yonder one of these days, and waves will shoot plumb out to the state of Kentucky. And when it does, it'll shake the world so hard that everything on top of it will shake down" (Thinking Man's Filter, 24:144-145).
Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth
Jesus told the Samaritan woman, "Your people worship you know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Judeans."
Several weeks ago I heard a Baptist preacher tell his congregation, "Were it not for the "Jews" we should have no salvation". Such carnality. Adam had salvation, so did Noah, Job, Abraham and their -- kin hundreds and thousands of years before Judah was born. And as we have explained, the word "Jew" did not exist in any language before 1775. It was not in the King James or any other version of the Bible until revisions late in the eighteenth century. The word "Jew", like the word "multiculturalism", is a deliberately deceptive euphemism introduced to cloud a great truth of God.
The Promise and Covenant of Christianity was given to Abraham in Genesis 12 -- 25 years before the birth of Isaac, 85 years before Jacob was born, when there was still no Judah and no Judaites! The Promise was to Abraham and his Seed, which is Jesus Christ through the line of Judah and the House of David, and has nothing whatsoever to do with "Jews". Read all of Galatians 3.
The word "Jew" was originally the word "Judean" and referred to the inhabitants of a geographic area irrespective of their race or religion. Indeed, in the days of Jesus as in this present day, many of the inhabitants of that province were unrelated to the Patriarchs, or even to Adam. And Jesus was NOT a Jew.
This Scripture should be understood in the context of the conversation of John 4. Jesus was alone with a woman on the outskirts of town; a woman of ill-fame and a Samaritan. Three reasons, according to custom, why a holy man of Judea should not speak with her. Hence the woman's surprise that Jesus should approach her, "How is it that you, being a Judean, asks drink of me, who is a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans."
A Samaritan, strictly speaking, would be an inhabitant of the city of Samaria; but the term was applied to all people of the kingdom of Israel. After the captivity of Israel, 721BC, and in our Lord's time, the name was applied to a people brought in to replace the portion of Israelites deported by Shalmanesar.
II Kings 17:24, "the king of Assyria resettled people from Babylon, Cuthah, Ava, Hamath and Sepharvaim, in the cities of Samaria, replacing the children of Israel: Assyria possessed Samaria and the other cities of Israel." These new Samaritans were Assyrians by birth or subjugation. These strangers, who were of course idolaters, kindled God's displeasure, and they were annoyed by beasts of prey, which had increased after the Israelites were deported. On their explaining their miserable condition to the king of Assyria, he dispatched one of the captive priests to teach them "how they should fear the Lord" (of that land).
Henceforth, they "feared the Lord" but also worshipped their idols. And when Judah returned from Babylonian captivity, they desired to assist in rebuilding the temple at Jerusalem. On being refused, they became openly hostile. The feud grew more intense until about 409BC when Manasseh, a man of priestly lineage, on being expelled from Jerusalem by Nehemiah for an unlawful marriage, found refuge with the Samaritans and obtained permission from the Persian king to build them a temple on Mount Gerizim.
Hence the woman said to Jesus, "Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and you say, that Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship".
Reading John 4:20-24 in conjunction with Deuteronomy 16:2, 5-6, 16 we realize God would not permit the people of the Law to sacrifice their feasts of Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles in just any of the places He had given them to sacrifice in the past. A map of Israel's journeyings indicates some 42 camps, but their final rest was Jerusalem. God chose to put His Name in the destination. In the days of Jesus, Jerusalem was the current and only place where God met with His nation. Three times in the years all adult males had to assemble under the blood of the lamb in Jerusalem.
This demonstrates how the Christian must "walk in the PRESENT Truth or "Light" Jesus is shining NOW" (I John 1:7). The ONLY Place God will meet the believer in THIS day is in the Word He predestinated to be fulfilled in THIS day. That explains why it is impossible to be born-again under the preaching of the Anglican or Lutheran part of the Word in THIS day, Methodist, Baptist or Pentecostal parts of the Word. We must understand them, but those parts of the Word were fulfilled in a day gone by.
The Samaritans held their own temple to be far superior to that at Jerusalem. They sacrificed a Passover, and (even after the temple had been destroyed by John Hyrcanus in 130BC), wherever they were they directed their worship toward Mount Gerizim. How like the Roman Catholic who still worships with his heart towards Vatican City although it was destroyed almost 500 years ago by the preaching of Martin Luther).
To their copy of the Law the Samaritans imputed an antiquity and an authority greater than attached to any copy in possession of the Judeans. The five books of Moses, were their sole guide and they rejected every other book in the Old Testament. Just like each of the Protestant denominations that organized after Luther. Whenever God revealed MORE Light on His Word, they shut their eyes and rejected the Holy Spirit.
Such were the Samaritans in Jesus's day; a people distinct from the Judeans, though living in their very midst; a people preserving their identity, through seven centuries that had passed since they were brought from Assyria by Esarhaddon, although they had abandoned their polytheism for a sort of ultra Mosaicism.
Such also are the denominational Christians of this day. They have called themselves "Christians" through five centuries that have passed since they took the first steps out of Babylon by Luther's Message, although they still cling to their Trinitarian substitute for God.
When Jesus said "You Samaritans worship you know not what: we Judeans KNOW what we worship, for salvation is of the Judeans," He is contrasting the quasi-Mosaic religion of the Samaritans with that of the Judeans.
The Samaritans had established themselves in the Law, like the denominations of today, adopting what they chose to believe and ignored those things which were inconvenient. They did NOT worship in Jerusalem which is where the blood was so they were "out from under the blood of the lamb" as it were, like the denominations of today are out from under the blood because they are not walking in the Light of the PRESENT Truth but impersonating the Word for a day gone by.
The Samaritans had PART-Word, but we are not to add to or take from God's Word (Deuteronomy 4:2; Matthew 4:4). Salvation was to come from Messiah, the REAL Passover Lamb, Who would be sacrificed by the priests IN Jerusalem, according to the Law. The Samaritans would MISS that salvation if they carried on worshiping God according to THEIR mind instead of God's mind. Hence, they "knew NOT what they worshipped ... salvation is of the Judeans" IN Jerusalem.
(DEATH is of the self-styled "Jews" (Malachi 1:1-5) and also of the self-styled Christians).
The Judeans, like the Americans and Australians of today, were a multicultural bag of races and religions whereas they were to be a SEPARATED people. So were we before the "Jews" gained power over us and set about perverting and polluting our race, culture and religion. The Judeans like the Australians and Americans followed their FALSE ministers WITHOUT THINKING whereas we are to PROVE all things -- like my preaching and teaching -- with God's Word, to ensure we have the mind of CHRIST in us, NOT the mind of Anthony Grigor-Scott or some kind old priest (Acts 17:11; Romans 3:4; Galatians 1:8-9; I Thessalonians 5:21).
The people of Judea, generally, were opposed to Jesus because of the "opinion makers" of His day. The very SAME group control OUR media, education and entertainment today. And the curricula taught in Bible schools as the understanding of the Baptist pastor confirmed. Listen to what the influential "Jew", Walter Lippmann said, "My conclusion is that public opinions must be organized FOR the press if they are to be sound, not BY the press as is the case today. This organization I conceive to be in the first instance the task of a political science that has won its proper place as formulator, in advance of real decision, instead of apologist, critic, or reporter after the decision has been made..."
This famous "opinion maker", trusted by millions of Americans, was advocating the creation of a totalitarian state. If one small group is permitted to control public opinion, that small group can use their power to benefit the aims of the group rather than the public at large. People's actions are strongly influenced by their knowledge base. People act on their beliefs. By corrupting a person's knowledge base you can manipulate their actions.
This is the basis of denominationalism today as it was the basis of denominationalism in Samaria, and the basis upon which God has permitted disobedient Israel to be blinded to Spiritual things for over 2,000 years. Israel is blinded by their priests and rabbis who are anti-Semitic in the most wicked way by withholding the Light of the Gospel from genuine Hebrew people, in order to preserve the approval of their apostate peers. God can never use those rabbis and will have to send two prophets to open the eyes of His servant nation.
The so-called Christians of today are likewise blinded by false theology propagated by ministers serving organization rather than the Living Word. That's why God sent us a prophet in this day to RESTORE the apostolic faith (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Acts 3:21), FINISH the mystery of God (Acts 3:23; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7) and WAKE UP the wise and foolish virgin, calling them OUT from the teachings of Rome and her (once) Protestant harlot daughters (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:1-4).
By and large the Judeans, like Australians and Americans, did NOT think for themselves and had a second-hand religion. They were sycophants, whose religion, like that of most people today was mind manipulation that emulated the prejudices, dogma and "opinions" of the religious hierarchy of the time. Come OUT of that mess and be filled with the Spirit.
Faith is a clear understanding of the revealed Word of God. It is the mind of God in you. It is an INDIVIDUAL revelation which requires the individual to PROVE all things. nl088.htm
