"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; thanks for gathering for fellowship. Stand firm on God's unchanging Word, for all national histories are built upon the refuge of lies of leaders past and present whose hiding place of falsehood God is preparing to sweep away (Matthew 4:8-9).
Most governments are de facto and not de jure. There is a vast difference. One is ruled by the People and the other rules by force of a gun. Disobey and an officer with a gun shows up. US courts are guarded by a gun. When the Federal Corporation Government defeated the sovereign Southern states, all were put under martial law by the Lieber Code. Lincoln conquered America and the Commander-in-Chief rules by executive order: government agencies are only advisory. Visit atgpress.com for some excellent research.
One of our subscribers notes 'there are almost no terrorists other than those working for the forces pursuing global dominion.' And historian of truth, Robert Faurisson writes:
In 1944, President F.D. Roosevelt decided upon creation, requested by the rich Jew Henry Morgenthau Jr., of the so-called War Refugee Board, and in November 1944, this official body published, under the heading Executive Office of the President/War Refugee Board/Washington, D.C., a report entitled "German Extermination CampsAuschwitz and Birkenau," falsely accusing Adolf Hitler of having Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) called 'gas chambers'.
Today, we see President G.W. Bush had decided the creation, asked for by the rich Jew Paul Wolfowitz, of the so-called Pentagon Special Plans Unit (SPU) and that this official body authored reports falsely accusing Saddam Hussein of having WMD.
The lie was the same: an accusation based on false evidence. The people were the same: rich and powerful American Jews. The purpose was the same: war.
But there are also differences. First, the lie against Adolf Hitler is about impossible and inconceivable WMD (for physical and chemical reasons) while the lie against Saddam Hussein is about quite possible and conceivable WMD since his accusers themselves have the same kind of WMD. Second, the lie against Adolf Hitler is more than half a century old and stronger than ever while the lie against Saddam Hussein is a few years or months old and already not too strong. Third, if you dispute the accusation against Adolf Hitler, you might go to prison like Ernst Zundel, while if you dispute the accusation against Saddam Hussein you are, at least for the present, taking limited risks. (Robert Faurisson, June 2, 2003).
Robert Haupt recently launched a website explaining the Conspiratorial View of History and the fact that World War III is progressing according to a grand plan that calls for three world wars and three major revolutions to yield the conspirators world hegemony. He wrote, 'Much of my background research started from the unique perspective I read about in your newsletters.' I recommend you study his research on threeworldwars.com.
Journalist John Kaminski writes: 'Now, as we wring our hands while America morphs from beacon of liberty to the most sinister oppressor of all people in the world, we come to another realizationif we are mature and wise enough to understand that the USA has always been a militaristic machine, first taming a wilderness continent peopled by beings we called savages, now conquering a world occupied by individuals we disparagingly regard as inferior foreigners.' (Read what William Branham said in The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 83:5-86:1).
'We come to understand that our prosperity is wholly dependent on conquest and exploitation of those less alert than ourselves. That this beastly attitude has been transformed into heroic legends is simply good public relations. Everybody needs to feel good about themselves, no matter what they are doing. Thus America has crafted for itself a history packed with glorious campaigns and noble efforts. The trail of corpses this history has produced is seldom mentioned. . . And thus it is with 9/11'.

Pentagon Papers II: $1Trillion goes Missing
May 18, 2003 An internal study found the Pentagon couldn't account for more than a trillion dollars. A GAO report found Defense inventory systems so lax that the US Army has lost track of 56 airplanes, 32 tanks, and 36 Javelin missile command launch-units. And before the Iraq war, when military leaders were scrambling to find enough chemical and biological warfare suits to protect US troops, the department was caught selling these suits as surplus on the Internet "for pennies on the dollar". (San Francisco Chronicle).
Comment: What if some thug nation told the US: Account for your WMD or be nuked!
Cosmic Lebensraum: US pegs Outer Space
The largest US intelligence agency by budget, controlling all US spy satellites, National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) is talking openly with the US Air Force Space Command about denying the use of space for intelligence purposes to any other nation; not just adversaries but even longtime allies, according to NRO director Peter Teets. If allies don't like the new paradigm of space dominance, said Air Force secretary James Roche, they'll just have to learn to accept it. Major General Judd Blaisdell, director of the Air Force Space Operations Office, said: "We are so dominant in space that I pity a country that would come up against us." NRO will be in charge of the new Offensive Counter-Space program, which will come up with plans to specifically deny the use of near-Earth space to other nations. The program will include two components: Counter Communication System, designed to disrupt other nations' communication networks from space; and Counter Surveillance Reconnaissance System, formed to prevent other countries from using advanced intelligence-gathering technology in air or space. . .

American Mind Control in Baghdad
Spooks use technology "proven" on one-million dead Africans:
During the late afternoon of 6 April 1994, a hail of cannon shells tore through the fuselage of a commercial airliner flying over central Rwanda. Several seconds later the blazing plane exploded on impact with the ground, killing President Habyarimana of Rwanda, President Ntaryamira of Burundi, and most of their senior government officials. In that fatal millisecond of time, the entire political command structure of central Africa was decapitated, leaving the way open for "Operation Crimson Mist", the most obscene terminal mind control experiment ever mounted by the United States of America against a sovereign nation. That "Crimson Mist" has been used again recently on a smaller scale in Iraq, is now beyond doubt.
During recent weeks, European security experts have concluded that smaller versions of Crimson Mist were recently deployed on the street of Baghdad, designed in part to augment the media propaganda line that Iraqi citizens are dangerous savages, all badly in need of direct supervision by "democratic" American authorities. One classic example of this was the "looting" of the Baghdad Museum, apparently by an undisciplined rabble, but video footage tells a very different story.
Comment: We've seen a lot of this kind of criminality. It's just one of the reasons why some of us have reached the conclusion that the United States Government is a very large criminal organization, no doubt embracing many branches of organized criminal activity carried on outside the perimeters of government.

Does Greenspan Bribe and Aid Bush in Gold Swindles?
The Bank of England, jointly with the Queen of England, is offering for auction or sale gold that neither one apparently really owns, but is actually a huge gold horde stolen upon the downfall of the Soviet regime and whisked away to Dutch custody at a Swiss airport for speedy transport wheresoever requested. The Bank of America is owned jointly by the Vatican, the Jesuits, and the Rothschilds. Reportedly joining them in recent years as major owners have been the Japanese mafia, the Yakuza, big in the US dope traffic, and owning most every bank in California.

Mega Media Madness
June 2, 2003 The Federal Communications Commission voted 3 to 2 to meet the demands of big communications corporations. Rigorously opposed by consumer, religious, labor, community and public interest groups across the country, FCC Chairman Michael Powell warped the decision-making process to deliver a result allowing conglomerates to buy up hundreds of newspapers, television and radio stations in communities across the United States. Competition, diversity and local content will be undermined in local markets and nationally.
. . . The Center for Public Integrity recently revealed that over the past eight years, media companies and their associations paid for 2,500 travel junkets by FCC commissioners and staffers, at a cost of $2.8 million. The Center also revealed that FCC commissioners, their aides and top staffers hosted 71 off-the-record meetings with industry executives in the months leading up to today's vote. At the same time, only five meetings were held with organizations representing the public interest. Full story: tompaine.com reuters.com
US-led Military Action against Iraq Illegitimate
At a news conference at the end of the G8 summit France was hosting, Mr. Chirac said"We consider that all military action not endorsed by the international community, through, in particular, the Security Council, was both illegitimate and illegal, is both illegitimate and illegal. And we have not changed our view on that", Mr. Chirac told reporters in Evian. Full story: news.bbc.co.uk
Preaching to the 'Total Lost'
John 12:37-41, "Though Jesus had performed so many miracles before the Judeans, yet they believed not on Him: that the saying of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, "Lord, who has believed our report; and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?" (Isaiah 53:1). Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah also said, "God has blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; lest they should see with their eyes, and understand with their heart, and turn and be converted so that I should heal them" (Isaiah 6:10). These things Isaiah said when he saw His glory, and spoke of Him".
Isaiah's "report" was His Message to the Hebrews: the glorious News of Messiah and redemption, which as God advised at the start of his prophetic ministry, would condemn the nation of Israel for almost three thousand years because they would reject his report and cut off the Arm of the Lord God (John 3:18-19).
John 1:18, "No one has seen (or perfectly perceived the nature and character of) God at any time, the only begotten Son alone who is the center of the Father's love, has declared Him." The "Arm of the Lord" is Jesus Christ since Messiah is the Mighty God unveiled: Isaiah said these Words following a vision wherein he saw the Lord Jesus (John 12:41).
This week I received an e-mail from a man who described himself as 'a Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jew'. Talk about a mamzer! He claimed, 'The Torah states that G-d cannot not take any form.' He is not familiar with Moses who saw God in the form of a Pillar of Fire, a Cloud, a Rock, and a Man, and reported how Adam and Eve saw and spoke with Him in the form of a Man, as did Abraham, and how Jacob wrestled with Him, not to mention the experiences his brother prophets.
The prophets don't contradict Moses. According to Isaiah 6 which Jesus quoted, Isaiah saw God's glory in the form of the glorified Jesus Christ crowned King of kings and accompanied by His own glory, the true Church. The Bible is the story of God changing His form or unfolding Himself from the Holy Spirit alone with His thoughtsthrough faith in the Spoken Wordto the glorified flesh of His Family, which is Jesus Christ and the elect Church. "Jesus Christ is the beginning of God creating Himself a part of His creation" just two thousand years ago when a virgin girl received the Spoken Word by faith (Revelation 3:14; Luke 1:26-38; Isaiah 7:14). For "God was manifest in the flesh" (I Timothy 3:16).
Jesus said "the mystery of God would be finished" once He opened the Seven Seals on the Bible, proving that Christ is the mystery of God revealed, for the whole Book is "the revelation of Jesus Christ" (Revelation 10:1-7; 1:1). Daniel and John each heard these "seven thunders" which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:1-4). They were forbidden to write what they'd heard, but in the days when this mystery was finished God would be known to His Church, not as three people, but as one Person. It is these divinely revealed 'mystery-truths' that literally turn the hearts of the children to their Pentecostal fathers (Malachi 4:5-6); confirming Jehovah of the Old Testament is Jesus of the New.
Let's read that Scripture again, "Though Jesus had performed so many miracles before the Judeans, yet they believed not on Him: that the saying of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled . . . These things Isaiah said when he saw His glory, and spoke of Him." In the vision Isaiah saw Jesus and His Bride glorified: through the new birth or invisible marriage union they are one (John 17:1-6; Hebrews 1:3). Isaiah saw a preview of the revelation that 144,000 elect Israelites will see or understand by faith when they recognize Christ's 'parousia' Coming to them. This will be much the same as the vision of Revelation 1:13 that signifies the glorified Jesus Christ and His Bride drawn out from all seven Church Ages. This is the revelation Christ's end-time Bride is seeing now in His 'parousia' to us. As John represents Christ's end-time Bride who will not see death, here Isaiah represented the 144,000 elect Israelites.
John 12:42-50, "Nevertheless even among the chief rulers many (like Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea) believed in Him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God."
"Then Jesus cried and said, He who believes in Me, believes not in Me, but in Him Who sent Me. And he who sees Me sees Him who sent Me." (Jesus Christ is Emanuel, not a second or third person, but "God with us").
"I have come as a light into the world, that whosoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness. And if anyone hears My Words, and does not believe, I don't judge him: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He who rejects Me, and receives not My Words, has that which judges himMy spoken Word will judge him in the last day. For I haven't spoken on My own authority; but the Father Who sent Me told Me what I should say, and I know that His command is eternal Life. Therefore, whatever I speak in His Name is THUS SAITH THE LORD".
As God veiled Himself behind the created Man in Genesis 18, and behind the virgin-born Man and spoke the Word, in our day He veiled Himself behind William Branham, a sinner saved by grace, revealing Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. His spoken Word will judge this wicked and adulterous generation (Luke 17:28-30; Acts 3:23; Revelation 14:9-12; 22:17-19).
Two vindicated prophets cannot contradict one another in the Name of the Lord for God is not double-minded, and Jesus was known as "the prophet of Nazareth." When Isaiah the prophet saw the glory of God it manifest the glorified Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 53:1-12 foretells Jesus' life and work and Israel's rejection and murder of Messiah. "Who has believed our report; and to whom is the Arm of the Lord revealed? For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no form nor comeliness; and when we see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him."
"Surely He has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement for our peace was upon Him; and by His stripes we are healed."
(There we have it. The "Arm of the Lord" is Jesus Christ. God took the form of a virgin-born Man to suffer death as Adam's Kinsman Redeemer, to redeem his fallen race. When He visited Israel, they saw God and rejected Him because He did not meet the mistaken expectations of their theologians. They labeled Him an anti-Semitic Nazi self-hating bastard and terrorist Who denies the holocaust, or similar false accusations at an ancient Nuremberg-style kangaroo court where they sentenced Messiah to death because 'truth is no defense' in the "Jews'" star chamber. Truth was no defense in Jesus' day, and it is no defense today).
"All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth: He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so He opened not His mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living: for the transgressions of My people (Israel) He was stricken. And they made His grave with the wicked, and with the rich at His death; because He had done no violence, neither was any deceit in His mouth."
(Israel was blinded by their know-it-all, holier-than-thou ministers, who loved the praise of men and their denominational meal ticket more than they loved God and the revelation of His Word. They sacrificed Light for darkness, Truth for lies and Messiah for the murderer, Barabbas. Their high priest, Caiaphas prophesied: "His blood be upon us and upon our children." It has been from that day and the Hebrew people are still blind to Moses and their own prophets as Isaiah foretold.
Israel's blindness will endure until the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week when the nation will be born-again in one-dayall 144,000 of themthen hunted down by the false church and apostate "Jews," and killed like rats as Jesus taught in Revelation 6-19.
Because Israel have eyes to see and ears to hear but have rejected God's Word to the present day, He has constantly plagued that nation which will be ruled by aliens "against whom the Lord has indignation forever," and continue desolate to the consummation (Malachi 1:3-4; Daniel 9:27; Luke 21:24).
Since the apostolic faith was restored and the mystery of God was finished under the 'Elijah' ministry of Brother Branham, Gentile know-it-all, holier-than-thou ministers who are lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, with a form of godliness but denying the faith, have turned from the Truth to fables for which cause God has sent them a strong delusion that they should believe the lie and be damned by it, just like Israel's rabbis and priests.
Peter said the soul who does not receive the restoration ministry of the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:1-7 will be cast into the tribulation (Acts 3:23; Malachi 4:1-6; Revelation 22:17-19). As Isaiah's Message indicted Israel, the Message of our Elijah has indicted every Gentilechurch member or otherwisewho does not receive It).
"Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief: when His soul shall have made an offering for sin, He shall see His seed (Psalm 22:30-31; John 17:20), He shall prolong His days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand. He shall see of the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many; for He shall bear their iniquities. Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong; because He poured out His soul unto death, and He was numbered with the transgressors; and He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors".
Because God honored the faith of the fathers, Israel was the only nation with whom He dealt as a Father. He made them a conditional covenant under which they were to keep His commandments and become a light to draw the Gentiles under the tent of His Word. Israel never kept God's commandments, and taking His glory upon themselves despised we Gentiles as 'human cattle.' So instead of their salvation, Isaiah's report became their condemnation, and their dispensation ended in apostasy and disgrace.
Isaiah's Message to Israel was preaching to those Brother Branham called 'the total lost.' Having heard and seen the good things of God, they failed to "go on unto perfection" or the new birth. Paul scolded such people in Hebrews 5:11-6:3 for their dilatory attitude towards God's Word, demonstrating to us that it is not acceptable for Christian soldiers to content themselves with merely 'holding the fort' on doctrines of baptisms, laying-on of hands, and of resurrection from the dead and a final judgment. We must press toward the distant mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus by advancing our understanding of the revelation of Him. If we really do have the Spirit of Truth, He will bring the Word to our remembrance and guide us into a clear understanding of things that will come to pass in our dispensation.
Isaiah's Message and Israel's fall and condemnation at the end of their dispensation should be taken as a warning to us Gentiles at the end of our dispensation which God likewise concludes in apostasy. Brother Branham's glorious Message introduced Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming but spells condemnation and the lake of Fire to those who hear and reject It.
Christ's end-time Bride is charged to witness this Message again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings. This is the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 that awakens the wise and foolish virgin (Revelation 10:8-11; 18:4), the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6, calling Christ's Bride from denominational darkness into God's marvelous Light.
Brother Branham's Report is also the Arm of the Lord since It is Christ, the fullness of the Word. For the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Him back to earth in WORD form (I Corinthians 13:10). Many hearers are not doers, and treat Christ in a disrespectful, laid-back manner. But search the Scriptures, there is no way into Christ today outside a complete union with this Message, which is the unity of the faith. Unless we enter by this Door "the King will say, Friend, how did you come to the wedding feast not having a wedding garment (or the baptism with the Holy Spirit)? Then the king will command His servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen" (Matthew 22:12-14). Clearly our witness now is primarily to the 'total lost'.
Isaiah 6:1-13 brings us up to date, for it prophesies Israel's spiritual condition from his time to the impending day of the Lord. "In the year that king Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphim: each one had six wings; with two they covered their face, and with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew. And one cried to another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory. And the posts of the door shook at the voice of he who cried, and the house was filled with smoke."
"So I said, Woe is me; for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts" in the glorified, corporeal form of Jesus Messiah with His Bride.
"Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the sacrifice altar: and he touched my mouth with it, and said, This has touched your lips; your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged. Also I heard the Voice of the Lord saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? ("Us" is not a trinity of gods, but God and His Attributes manifest as His elect: the "train" that follows Him wherever He goes, and fills the temple or palace). Then said I, Here am I; send me."
"And He said, Go, and tell this people Israel, Continue hearing but do not understand and continue seeing, but do not perceive. Make the heart of this people dull, and their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and return and be healed."
"Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are laid waste and without inhabitant, and the houses without a man, and the land is utterly desolate, and the Lord has removed men far away, and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land. But yet a tenth will return and will again be given over to be consumed. As a terebinth tree or as an oak, whose stump remains after it has been cut down, so the holy seed (or 144,000 elect) shall be its stump".
God revealed a vision to His prophet in which he saw the Lord Jesus as Paul later described Him in Ephesians 1:20-23, "raised from the dead, glorified, and seated at God's right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and exalted above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come: and has put all things under His judgment, and given Him to be Head over all things to the Church, which is His Body, the fullness of Him that fills all in all".
Isaiah saw Christ at a stage of the prophecy following the opening of the Sixth Seal and corresponding to Israel's 'parousia' in Revelation 19 in the day of the Lord, when He alone is "high and lifted up" in union with His Bride"heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together" (Isaiah 2:10-22; 52:13-15; Romans 8:17).
The Seraphim were God's servants who receive and offer the revelation or sacrifice that cleanses the worshiper, making a way for the repented sinner to approach the throne of mercy where they present him to God. Like the cherubim they stand next to God, showing His justice in that sinners cannot come into His Presence unless they have been atoned for. They represent the seven-fold Spirit of God that led the Church Age messengers under the anointings of the four living creatures and will lead the two Hebrew witnesses. The revelation of their portion of the Word or Holy Spirit and Fire that gave new birth to the saints of their dispensations as indicated by the burning coal that purged Isaiah's lips to speak for God.
Isaiah was asking, "How long will Israel be spiritually blind, deaf to Your Word, and cold-hearted toward You?" Almost 800 years later, Jesus said Isaiah's prophecy was the reason for Israel's willful apostasy as all Scripture must be fulfilled. Isaiah prophesied the Babylonian captivity (Jeremiah 25:8-12; 29:18) during which many Hebrews would flee to Egypt, Edom and Moab and suffer further divine judgments. And although only a tithe of the people would eventually returnfor Babylon, not Jerusalem, remained the center of Jewish scholarship until about AD1200they too will be consumed in God's judgment unto the consummation (Daniel 9:27).
Isaiah's commission was 'to preach to the total lost.' God told His prophet, Israel will reject your prophetic ministry, and the more you preach, the more they will harden their hearts against God, Messiah, and His prophetic Word. Brother Branham's Message, by which we witness today, is more often than not preached to the 'total lost' because all Scripture must be fulfilled. Jesus prophesied, the generation at the end of the Laodicean Church Age would be naked of the Blood of Christ, Spiritually bankrupt, and blind to the faith (Revelation 3:17-20). nl276.htm
