Bible Believers' Newsletter 360
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ and thank you for gathering with us, we appreciate your fellowship around the unchanging Word of God.
In John 8:31-32, "Jesus said to those Jews who believed on him, If you continue in My Word, then are you My disciples indeed; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free".
Sadly, as we discover in the verses that follow, those "naughty figs" were imprisoned by their own mindset and would not receive either truth or freedom. But John, who throughout the Book of Revelation represents Christ's end-time Bride, "Saw the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him a hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father's Name written in their foreheads by faith. . . And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God" (Revelation 14:1, 5). Praise God for the "good figs".
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whosoever will receive the Truth may feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible. . .
Your brother in Christ,
Torture, American Style
When pictures of Iraqi prisoners tortured and abused by US troops appeared on television screens and in newspapers across the country, many Americans recoiled in horror, disgust, and shock. How could members of the US military carry out such heinous acts against the people we had supposedly come to liberate? Compounding this tragic irony is the fact that the Bush administration had repeatedly offered Sadaam Hussein's use of torture against the Iraqi people as one of the many pretexts presented by the US government to try and justify its invasion of Iraq.

Comment: "Advocates have been deprived of the right of communication with the litigants; they have received business from the court and been made study it by notes of report and documents, defending their clients after they have been interrogated in court on facts that have appeared" (Protocol 17). In Canada, Ernst Zundel has received like treatment.
Possible War Crime Charges Force Rumsfeld to Cancel Trip
January 21, 2005 US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld cancelled a planned visit to Germany after a US human rights organization asked German authorities to prosecute him for war crimes, Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa) has learned.
Rumsfeld has informed the German government via the US embassy that he will not take part in the Munich Security Conference in February, conference head Horst Teltschik told dpa on Thursday. Full story: english.aljazeera.net
USA No. 1?
No concept lies more firmly embedded in our national character than the notion that the USA is "No. 1," "the greatest." Our broadcast media are, in essence, continuous advertisements for the brand name "America is No. 1." Any office seeker saying otherwise would be committing political suicide. In fact, anyone saying otherwise will be labeled "un-American." We're an "empire," ain't we? Sure we are. An empire without a manufacturing base. An empire that must borrow $2 billion a day from its competitors in order to function. Yet the delusion is ineradicable. We're No. 1. Well . . . this is the country you really live in:
No. 1? In most important categories we're not even in the Top 10 anymore. Not even close.
The USA is "No. 1" in nothing but weaponry, consumer spending, debt, and delusion. Full story: austinchronicle.com
Comment: II Thessalonians 2:11I am advised that the plaque on the Pacific side of the new World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. that records the words of Illuminus F.D. Roosevelt's treasonous speech, "Yesterday, December 7, 1941a date which will live in infamy . . . etc," has been recast, and the last three words, "so help us God," have been deleted.
Like Israel and Judah of old, the empires of Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Imperial Rome, Britain, Spain, France, Turkey, Germany and Russia, have all been destroyed from within, and by the same entity. Now the USA and Papal Rome are on the chopping block, although together they will rule for a season until they are "nuked" by Judaeo-Communist Russia.
Subscribers write: Earthquake Warnings?
California January 23, 2005 Earthquake thoughts are on my mind. The cats quit eating, and all is quiet. I'm certainly no prophet, and am likely wrong (for now). Society is certainly blinded by its own folly, and wouldn't heed a warning if it were hand-delivered (but then, it was, wasn't it).

Holocaust® Ceremony in Half Empty UN
January 24, 2005 The UN hall was less than half full, and Jordan was the only Arab nation to remain during Holocaust memorial speeches by UN Secretary-General Kofi Anan and Foreign Minister Sylvan Shalom.
As Holocaust survivors delivered speeches in the first ceremony the United Nations ever has conducted remembering the Holocaust, a group of Russian parliament members demanded that several "anti-Semitic" Jewish groups be outlawed. They charged that the "democratic world is under the economic and political control of international Jewry" . . .
Anan opened the session saying, "The evil which murdered 6,000,000 Jews in the death camps still threatens us today." Before the ceremony, Anan said, "like it or not" people will link the Holocaust with the Arab-Israeli problem in Israel.

Comment: Anan is married to a Jewess. Russia has been financed by Wall Street and ruled by Jews since it was invaded from the East Side of New York in 1917 following 1,000 years of war. They know what they are talking about.
From over the pulpit: "But these others were not God's people, the Jews are!"
Not according to your Bible, preacher! God made His Covenant with the Gentile, Abraham and His Seed which is Jesus Christ whom the Prophet said was born of neither Israelite nor Gentile blood but by the will and Word of Godlike Adam in the beginning, and the Christian's second birth (Revelation 1:5; John 1:13). "God's people" are His predominantly Gentile elect"all the families of Adam"Goyim to be sure, but not the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled "Jew" who despise Abraham's seed (Genesis 12:1-3; Galatians 3:7-17, 27-29). Four hundred years later, God made a Covenant with the nation of Israel, not with Jews. The Law of Moses did not annul God's promise to Abraham. The Law was given to Israel as a curse on account of their sinfulness (Galatians 3:18-19). Furthermore, Israel broke their Covenant with God in a matter of weeks (Exodus 32:7-10).
The mentality behind Israeli brutality! Inside the UN General Assembly hall, Foreign Minister Shalom warned of rising anti-Semitism. The Jewish Agency reported a sharp increase in physical attacks against Jews in Europe, mostly by Moslems and Arabs. Full story: alkhilafah.info libertyforum.org
The Original Six Million were Six Million Jews
who starved to Death during World War I
The following stories were printed in the New York Times claiming that World War I resulted in the starvation of six million (five million in some accounts) Eastern European Jews . . . Mentioned as an aside is the fact that nearly all of the money raised by the big capitalists like Jacob Schiff and the media barons like William Fox went to "Soviet Russia," conquered in 1917 by Jews from the East Side of New York.

Comment: The Old Testament speaks of a jubilee every fiftieth year in which all debts are cancelled, Hebrew slaves were freed and any land that was mortgaged was returned (Leviticus 15:10). It seems the letter "v," which in Hebrew represents the number six, has not been copied so with Talmudic license the rabbis have twisted this to mean, "You shall return minus six million".
The Horrors of Auschwitz
"Despite thousands of detailed documents on the crematoria built to dispose of the bodies of typhus victims, not a single piece of documentary evidence has ever been produced to substantiate the existence of even one gas chamber; not an order for construction, a plan, an invoice, or a photograph. During the hundreds of 'war crimes' trials, nothing could be produced. There were no gas chambers at Auschwitz or anywhere else in wartime Europe. On that I state my reputation and career" (Professor Robert Faurrisson, Le Monde).

Any Bible Believer knows the world is approaching a time of universal slaughter. The United Nations and other globalist organizations have plans for a massive reduction in human population. Filipinas of child-bearing age were vaccinated with tetanus shots containing a substance that would render them infertile. A "one child" policy was enforced in China. Africa and Asia have been infected with AIDS. The UN has managed wars, revolutions and famines, reduced farm productivity as well as acreage under cultivation on such pretexts as preserving native vegetation and habitat, combating salinity, reforestation, water conservation, and world heritage. They encourage the introduction of genetically modified grains, while globalization is increasing the pressure for standardized animal products from hybrid animals, diminishing the gene pool so that when the hybrids eventually fail there will not be sufficient natural breeding stock to replenish flocks and herds. Many once common breeds are already extinct.
The 'hidden hand' of the dynasties that control the 'visible elite' who manage their world have specialists in every field to ensure Lucifer's long-term strategies for one world government unfold according to plan. And God, "not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance," stayed the four winds of World War I which would otherwise have culminated in the premature slaughter of Armageddon before "all Israel is saved," according to His Plan.
God has been conducting an 'investigation judgment,' as He did in the days of Lot and before Nebuchadnezzar brought Judah under Gentile domination, to see who really believes (Genesis 18; Luke 17:28-30; Revelation 8:13; 14:6-12; II Kings 24). Today the Angel of the Lord is sealing only those who sigh and cry and endeavour to correct the abominations done by "seducing clergy spirits, workings of devils, hypocrisies in the church, of heady, high-minded men with a form of godliness but denying the revelations," unable to distinguish the children of Israel from sons of Cain, or take the "letter" of the Prophet's Words back to Scripture from Genesis to Revelation and to "the book of history" as he taught us in order that they may receive the Spirit by faith (William Branham, The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 191:6).
Those who look with indifference on the sins of other men, like national and community leaders or blind leaders of lemmings who for the sake of their meal ticket and political correctness side with the perpetrators of the holocaust hoax and enemies of Israel, are partakers in their sin.
Masters of mind-manipulation have brainwashed and trained us to react impulsively without thought like Pavlov's dogs. Consider some of the psychology to which we were conditioned to react: Roosevelt's Pearl Harbor, the Bay of Pigs, Israel's 1967 War, the Gulf of Tonkin incident, Moon landing, 9/11, al-Qaeda, WMD, the Trinity, baptism in three Titles, Judaism is the religion of Moses, Climate Change, AIDS from monkeys, energy crisis . . . the list goes on.
"Some events do take placebut are not true; others are truealthough they never occurred" (Elie Wiesel, "Legend of Our Time").
"Conscious and scientific manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses by public relations counsels experts, the invisible rulers who control the destinies of millions . . . the most direct way to reach the herd is through their leaders. . . all this must be planned . . . indoctrination must be subtle. It should be worked into the everyday life of the people24 hours a day in hundreds of ways . . . A redefinition of ethics is necessary . . . and the subject matter of propaganda need not necessarily be true" (Caldwell & Zanfagna, Fluoridation and Truth Decay, p. 8).
Are you following my words, the words of William Branham and the words of your pastor? Or are you taking those words back to God's Bible and "the book of history"not the conscious and scientific lies of public relations experts taught in our schools, but factto ensure the tie post of your soul is the mind of Christ, and not some psychology of man!
Lord Bertrand Russell wrote, "It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anyone of anything, if he can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment. This subject will make great strides when it is taken up by scientists under a scientific dictatorship" (The Impact of Science on Society).
The world stands on this precipice . . . next to lemmings within the circle of this Message.
Ezekiel 9 foretold Nebuchadnezzar would terminate Judah's kingdom with great slaughter and initiate the "times of the Gentiles" who will rule over Jerusalem till the consummation under the dominion of Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome, as prophesied by Daniel a decade earlier (Genesis 27:39-41; Daniel 2; 9:27; Luke 21:24). As the times of the Gentiles draw to a close the elect Israelites will catch the revelation of Messiah their King and His Queen returning in glory to destroy the enemy and declare, "Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord." God will then restore the Kingdom to Israel in faith, and after Armageddon, in fact (Acts 1:6; Isaiah 9:7; Revelation 19).
Ezekiel's vision revealed six men with slaughtering weapons, and a seventh representing the Holy Spirit dressed in the righteousness of saints and bearing a writer's inkhorn. The Lord tells Him to mark the foreheads of those who have the revelation, and says to the others, "Follow after Him through the city and kill: do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity: utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children, and women: but do not approach anyone who is sealed; and begin at My Sanctuary. They began at the elders before the temple. Then God said, Defile the temple, and fill the courts with the slain. Go forth! And they went out, and killed in the city".
God had told Moses to utterly slay the Serpent's seed people wherever they were found in the Promised Land. But Joshua was deceived and made a treaty with these people whom Brother Branham said, "would cheat you out of your false teeth if they could." Upon discovering his deception, instead of obeying God, he made them "hewers of wood and drawers of water." This seemingly minor compromise with the Word has followed Israel to this day. The Church made the same mistake with the spiritual Serpent's seed. It is the little foxes that spoil the vine. Put them out of the camp, or get out yourself.
Grace ran before justice, but nothing was said about marking in the temple. Indeed Ezekiel's angels began killing at the Temple. And in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week after the Beast breaks its covenant with the Jewish banksters, the four angels of Revelation 7:1-3 will begin killing at the Vatican and her Protestant image in the United States. As God raised Nebuchadnezzar to defeat apostate Judah and destroy Jerusalem's temple, He has also raised Judaeo-Communist Russia to destroy the apostate church, leading to Armageddon and the destruction of all life on earth. But before this slaughter can begin, 144,000 elect Israelites must be born-again (Revelation 6:11; 11:7-13; 14:1-5, 13-20).
The vision of Revelation 7:1-3 was revealed to John who represents Christ's end-time Bride in the holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel's Pentecostal feast. The four horses of Revelation 6 have gone forth, the Messages of the three angels of Revelation 14 have been deliveredLuther's Justification by grace through faith, Wesley's sanctification by the Blood, and Brother Branham's baptism with the Holy Ghost with warning to escape the mark of the beast. The vision of Revelation 14:6-12 tells us that under the Fourth Seal and "as it was in the days of Lot" (Luke 17:28-30), God would begin a revival and an "investigation judgment" sealing all who sigh and cry for the abominations done in the Name of His Church. Israel is God's timepiece, so it began on May 6, 1947, the day after Israel raised her flag in Jerusalem when the Angel of the Lord commissioned Brother Branham to take a Message of healing and Spiritual revival to the world. Jesus said, "When you see the fig tree [Israel] and all the trees [Gentile nations and churches of all denominations] putting forth buds [or reviving with new life], know that summer [harvest time and the first resurrection] is nigh. This generation shall not pass away till all is fulfilled" (Luke 21:30-32; Sirs, We would See Jesus, #57-1211; Revelation 10:7; 14:9; 18:1-4).
Brother Branham said, "The very day the Angel of the Lord called me out, May the 6th, 1947, and issued the gift to pray for the sick, was the very same day that Israel become a nation for the first time for twenty-five hundred years. Oh, I believe there's something in it. I just can't keep from believing that we're near the end of time. That's right" (Great Coming Revival, #54-0718A).
"The book of history" (The Seven Church Ages, p. 4:29) confirms his experience: "The First Committee of the United Nations, on which each of the 55 members is represented, held twelve meetings, from May 6 to May 13, 1947, using the facilities for simultaneous translation available at Lake Success on May 6 to determine the make-up of the commission called the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine (UNSCOP) that would determine the future of Palestine (UN docs. A/C.I/P.V.46-57 (May 6-13, 1947)".
Going back in time to the Armistice of World War I prophesied in Revelation 7:1-3 and 9:15 for the hour, day, month and year early in the Fourth Seal and Sixth Trumpet we see "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".
These four messengers of judgment are the four horses [or demonic powers] that withstood Christ and His Bride under the first Four Seals as Satan rode forth to conquer Christ's kingdom by impersonating His Church to establish a Roman Universal religious government that would worship him incarnate in Rome's last pope as once he was worshipped vicariously as Caesar (Revelation 17:7-11). Under the First Seal he assumed spiritual authority as mediator between God and men by establishing the papacy and changing one word to deceive the second Eve, the church, as he had added one word to deceive the first Eve (Genesis 3:4). I Timothy 2:5, "There is one mediator between God and men [plural], the Man Christ Jesus." Satan changed Scripture to teach "There is one mediator between God and MAN [singular, Christ's vicar the pope]." By this nicolaitane strategy Satan usurped Christ's Headship and placed a clerical hierarchy between God and men (Revelation 2:6, 15). Under the Second Seal he gained political hegemony over rulers; while under the Third Seal he exercised demonic powertransubstantiation, communing with dead saints and Mary, selling indulgences for future sins [after the Kol Nidre prayer of the Synagogue of Satan], pronouncing anathemas, papal infallibility, and denominationalism. Under the Fourth Seal Satan having accumulated all of these earthly powers and authorities is ready to incarnate himself in "that man of sin, the son of perdition" for universal rule after the close of the Fourth Seal (The Seal of God, p. 32:239).
The four 'angels' of Revelation 7:1 are the horses or 'powers' Satan 'rode' under the first four Seals. In her Imperial form Rome was already an amalgam of the evil attributes of the previous three beasts or Gentile world empires of Daniel 7; in Papal livery under the first three Seals of the Gentile dispensation Satan accrued spiritual or ecclesiastical, political, and demonic power. Under the Fourth Seal early in Laodicea the more mobile industrialized populations, striving for intellectual, political and economic self-determination and social equality, and dissatisfied with the status quo challenged the tight rein of the Judaeo-Roman church. Thus "the four winds" which signify war and strife were loosed in World War I, which was the First Woe that terminated the Fifth Trumpet and identified the king of the bottomless pit as "the Destroyer" (Revelation 9:11), "the king of demons, the angel of the bottomless pit" who will incarnate the last pope thereafter called the beast (Revelation 17:8-11). Laodicea ended in 1963 and after fifty years we are at the end of the holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of the Pentecostal feast and all power is centered in Rome. This collectivist nature is common to Judaism, Romanism, Islam and Communism.
Because "Jews" impersonate the Israelites they partake of their persecutions under the four angels or horses of the beast of papal Romevery largely at the hand of their own 'hidden' leadersbut without the glorious blessing promised the elect of Abraham's natural seed. When the Gentile day of grace is over, and the 144,000 elect Israelites have received their former and latter rain they will be martyred by the incarnate Satan who will thereafter destroy his own church. Then the trail of the Serpent should be clear even to slow learners.
Note at no time are the four winds prevented from harming God's servant nation. Under the Trumpet judgments they are His rod to chastise, correct and turn Israel back to the Land of the Covenant, the one place He can recognize her as a nation, and only in Jerusalem can Israel recognize Messiah and mourn the atonement they have rejected to that time.
These four angels at the cardinal points of earth will restrain the four winds from destroying the beast from the earththe United States of America and her confederation of apostate (once) Protestant churches, the beast from the seaVatican Rome, and from hurting the treessignifying human prosperity, thus global depopulation and the consummation of life, until the 144,000 elect Israelites are sealed. The "four winds of the earth" loosed for World Wars I and II will be released for the 'hot stage' of World War III. The UN has ensured the USA has lost every war she has provoked since World War II and she will lose World War III. Israel and subsequently mainland United States will be invaded after earthquakes destroy the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem and sink Los Angeles (Daniel 11:40-45). After "Israel is born in one day," the four angels will again loose the four winds igniting Armageddon and the Vatican and the United States will be turned into ashes (Isaiah 24:21; 30:26; 66:8; Zechariah 3:9-10; Revelation 11:11-13).
The Sixth Vial was poured out after World War II, and between the Sixth and Seventh Vials the end-time Bride sees "three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the Dragon [Imperial Rome that "stood before the woman to devour her Child as soon as it was born" (Revelation 12:3-4)], and out of the mouth of the beast [of Papal Rome (Revelation 13:2)], and out of the mouth of the false prophet [or first pope (Revelation 13:2-11)]. They are the spirits of demons, working miracles, which go forth to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walks naked, and they see his shame. And they gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue [for this is the time of "Jacob's trouble"] Armageddon" (Revelation 16:13-16).
Satan incarnate, the rider on the fourth horse, will gather the world's rulers to the battle of Armageddon by the influence of three unclean spirits that come from his mouth under the last Gentile world empire. As Brother Branham explained, in 1933 the Lord showed him seven consecutive visions that would all transpire before He came. "The third vision was in the realm of world politics for it showed me that there would be three great "isms," Fascism, Nazism, Communism, but that the first two would be swallowed up into the third. [And through the United Nations Organization the once self-reliant Western world has been devoured by international socialism, trying to buy friendship in the "global village" and financing a universal welfare state on borrowed fundsEd]. The voice admonished, "Watch Russia, watch Russia. Keep your eye on the King of the North" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 321; Daniel 7:7-8, 20).
Brother Branham actually taught a 'hidden' fourth "ism," which is Romanism, the dictatorship of the "mouth that spoke these great things" (Daniel 7:7-8, 19-25; Revelation 13:1-10). These three "isms" did not manifest until after World War I. The Prophet said they will all wind up in Communism and destroy the beast from the sea and its image (Revelation 17:13-16; 18:1-20).
The first three natural beasts of Daniel's visions coalesce into Imperial, and finally Papal Rome, a demonic fourth monster beyond his capacity to describe, in which Satan becomes incarnate. The first three horses likewise coalesce into Satan incarnate. So the four angels of Revelation 7:1-3 represent four stages of the incarnation of the rider of the four horses or "powers" of Revelation 6. Throughout the times of the Gentiles, and in particular under Rome's dominion, Satan persecutes Israel and preserves Rome and her image until they have fulfilled their utility when they will be annihilated preparatory to enforcing the pure Luciferian worship.
Religious persecution will impact the Bride in the "squeeze" following the opening of the Sixth Seal. But after a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit in the manifestation of the Sons of God, this little hunted and persecuted group will go to be with Jesus when the Holy Spirit, who "cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads" leaves earth in our translation. "Then that Wicked one shall be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the Spirit of his mouth and destroy with the brightness of His 'parousia' coming" to Israel (Revelation 7:2-3; 13:3-10; II Thessalonians 2:7-12).
Once the Bride is in the Palace, Satan will incarnate the pope and become king-despot of the world. The patriarch of the international church and real pope of the universe will be the king of the Jews (Protocol 17). Religious persecution will strike the foolish virgin and true Israelites. From the dedication of the New Jerusalem temple Trinitarian belief will be mandatory. Then the slaughter of Israel's prophets, their born-again disciples and all who refuse Satan's mark, will commence, and with global prosperity restored the beast will abolish usury (Protocol 20), causing the Money Power, their tribesmen and the Black Nobility to switch allegiance to Russia. Satan's Judaeo-Communists will ignite Armageddon by annihilating Vatican City State and the United States (The Seal of God, p. 32:239-240).
Note how the Goy minions of the City of London are maiming and killing the defence forces of the once Christian West. They have expatriated our industrial and productive economic base and transferred infrastructure, jobs and intellectual property into the enemy's territories. Real capital and public utilities have been sold to alien banksters in exchange for fiat money backed by nothing and loaned to us at interest. Do you see how close we are to world government according to Satan's blueprint? Now consider the function of such events as two World Wars, the UN, the Vietnam War, Rwanda, Kosovo, 9/11, the "wars" against poverty, drugs, terror, and the Cold War, multiculturalism, the invasions and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, and the human and environmental consequences of depleted uranium, agent orange, inoculation, of psychological shock and awe that has overfilled the reservoirs of carefully crafted hatred and division.
World War I was the beginning or sorrows, the birth pains from which earth will renew herself (Matthew 24:8). Brother Branham said it would have culminated in Armageddon at that time had the Lord not stopped the war supernaturally.
Revelation 7:2-3, "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 earth and the sea, (The Destroyer, Satan). Saying, Do not harm earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads" (Revelation 14:1-5). The same Angel marked the faithful Hebrews who sighed and cried for the abominations done in Judah, and sought to correct those things before Nebuchadnezzar took over the kingdom.
God cannot seal His elect servants or deal with Israel outside the Promised Land, because the Covenant is without effect outside the Land. The sealing Angel ascending from the sun rising indicates the imminent restoration of the "fig tree" and the end of the ages (Malachi 4:1-3; Matthew 24:32-34). This was confirmed on December 9, 1917, when General Allenby marched into Jerusalem and took it under the prophecy of Revelation 7:2 without firing a shot. Apparently the word passed down Ottoman lines, "Allenby's coming," became "Allah is coming" by the time it reached Jerusalem, and the Turks surrendered. God next hardened the hearts of Mussolini (Fascism), Hitler (Nazism) and Stalin (Communism) in the Second Woe of World War II in order to force the Israelites back to Palestine which was stolen by the self-styled Jews in 1948.
Under the Great Trump of the Sixth Seal the Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 will gather 144,000 elect Israelites from the four winds whence they have been scattered for 2,500 years (Matthew 24:31).
There is no record of a command being issued to stop World War I which ended mysteriously in 1918 at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month so that the eleventh hour Hebrews could come into Christ and receive the same pay or baptism with the Holy Spirit as His Gentile Bride (Matthew 20:6-16).
Brother Branham said that the baptism with the Holy Ghost was not taught as the baptism with the Holy Ghost in Laodicea before World War I, neither was Scriptural water baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ revealed.
Jesus said, "A man went out to work, and another was employed an hour later, with additional laborers engaged throughout the day. When day was done, the master paid the eleventh hour worker the same portion as each of the others. So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many are called but few are chosen." God's "chosen people" all receive equal eternal Life. As we review Church history we learn how the martyrs labored and surrendered their lives for the faith, followed by the reformers who prayerfully labored to understand the Scripture. The ministry of the seventh angel has since "restored the Word spoken by the mouth of all God's holy prophets since the world began," so we live in the days when Christ is calling His Bride out from the PART-Word revelations of these earlier workers, into the unity of the faith (Matthew 25:6; Acts 3:19-21; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 18:4). This is the day of the restoration of the powers of God for the "third Pull" in the manifestation of the Sons of God for the translation (The Seal of God, p. 37:275).
Under the First and Second Woes of the Fifth and Sixth Trumpets, Palestine was given to the Jews so that God could call Israel back from Africa and the Middle East, and Judah from the four corners of the earth to the Land of the Covenant (Isaiah 11:11-12).
When explaining the "investigation judgment" Brother Branham often described how a railway boxcar must be inspected after it is loaded to ensure its cargo is secure, with no movement, guaranteeing there will be no breakage's in transit. If there was any looseness the inspector would condemn the car until it was repacked, reinspected and when all was satisfactory, it would be sealed to its destination. The Holy Spirit follows this procedure before He seals us to the day of our redemption (Ephesians 4:30).
The objective of the "Investigation judgment" is for us to "Examine ourselves, (by the revealed Word of God which is the Holy Spirit), whether we are in the faith; to prove ourselves for we know that if Christ is not in us, we are reprobates" (II Corinthians 13:5). While there is yet time for repentance and correction we are admonished to review the stature of the perfect Man and rectify our shortcomings.
II Peter 1:2-12, "Grace and peace are multiplied through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, as His Divine power has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who has called us to glory and virtue: whereby are given to us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these we might be partakers of the Divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust."
"Beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity."
"For if these things are in you, and abound, they ensure you shall be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he who lacks these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and has forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. Wherefore brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if you do these things, you shall never fall: for so an entrance shall be ministered to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."
Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though you know them, and be established in the present Truth".
If we can conform to the measure of the stature of the perfect man, we can be confident that we are sealed to the day of our redemption (Ephesians 4:30). nl360.htm
