"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus; it's good to see you.
The Prophet warned: "the world is going insane".
That prophecy has come to pass and we see why Brother Branham cautioned us against having a television set in the home. In the days before television people had more time to speak with and listen to God; time to communicate with their own family and friends: time to think. People were not so befuddled as to believe a holocaust of six million Jews in World War I, and the deceivers were obliged to write that hoax out of the history books.
Today we are confronted by the gigantic hoax of "terrorism," a horrendous lie fabricated and set up as the center-piece of the program to ignite the "hot" stage of World War III between innocent Islam and Political Zionists using nominal Christians as cannon fodder.
All three World Wars were planned in the mid-nineteenth century. And although we are not numbered among the wise and prudent worldly men we have been speaking of World War III for years. Many authoritative books written before there was an internet have discussed this plot in depth. Brother Branham saw the outcome of both World Wars II and III a series of visions in 1933, and before me is a book written by a nineteenth century man.
The war now being forced upon Islam is no new secret. Lucifer and his agents have managed to program the perceived priorities of the average man in the developed world whereby their world is the fantasy of a screenplay, bereft independent decision-making based upon a moral absolute and oblivious to physical realities beyond animal instinct.
No acts of terrorism have been convincingly shown to have been executed by Muslims, Arabs or any other so-called enemies of the Westnot one, not even those acts blamed on so-called suicide bombers. On the contrary, all terrorist strikes, including 9/11 and the recent London bombings were carried out under the direction of the criminal US/Israeli cabal. This is easy to see if you examine them against a global frame of reference. So long as you fail to recognize this, your thoughts and actions are going to be controlled by the evil forces pushing us into war. At the very least you will remain neutralized by a state of irresolvable confusion. That, sir, is the intended result!
It appears that at this moment the forces behind the program to drive us further into war have substantially lost their initiative, principally as a result of the great crescendo of world-wide "opinion" opposition (as distinguished from material opposition) they are experiencing from the internet. There are two things they can do to try to regain the initiativeneither of which is at all passive: One, they can override and neutralize opposition by undertaking a full-scale military campaign against Iran or some other target, making escalation of war a de facto event, or two, they can hit us with another "terrorist" act on the order of 9/11, which they can blame on "the Arabs."
As if life for the opposition is not problematic enough, in addition to phony terrorism claims, there is another sinister element of which one should be mindful, but of which one is probably not aware. Most patriotic, anti-war people have never encountered the concept of "controlled opposition," and have no idea what it means. A substantial amount of organized activism is really controlled opposition, the strategy of which is to display opposition on certain issues, by which to gain trust, while operating on a hidden agenda, meaning an agenda they will never admit to, of non-opposition as to certain other issues. Because almost no one is willing to think or talk about this, nor even to admit it exists, the entire oppositionist movement is vulnerable to being taken in by these phonies.
You don't think so? Well let me ask you this: How many people do you know who believe Arabs are our principal enemy, or who think making war on the Moslem world may be a good thing? How many people do you know who are on the fence as to who our true enemy is? How many people do you know who strive mightily to identify the correct strategy for dealing with our true principal enemy, knowing that it is not the Arab or the Moslem? How many people do you know who are reluctant to believe that 9/11 was an inside job? How many people do you know who refuse to admit that the US government has fallen into the hands of our enemy? Do you ever wonder why things don't move ahead faster in regard to analyzing the issues and where people should stand on them? Do you sometimes wonder if people are as mentally inert as they seem to be?
Maintain a clean, clear well-informed mind. Remember, the enemy of God and man controls the media, education and entertainment. Do not trust the conclusions he would place in your mind. Do your own thinking with God's unchanging Word as your Absolute. Satan is the god of this evil age: he will be worshipped and he will take the world to perdition. God has made an upward way for Christ's end-time Bride. Jesus said, "When you see all these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift your heads; for your redemption draws near".
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed his soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
God, Christ and Jews
Christ's Message was a message of human perfectibility. We must love and obey God before all else. Christ was crucified by worldly powers that would be God. They DON'T want people to obey the Spirit. They want people to obey them . . .
We live in a world governed by megalomaniac criminals, traitors, impostors, perverts and Satanists whose misdeeds are hidden or justified by a corrupt media and cultural elite.
In the months to come, the veneer may wear thin, and we may see Satan's face behind the media mask. The population of the West may suffer for its self indulgence, cowardice and stupidity. We may need to turn to God and Christ for solace and inspiration. We may need to discover First Principles. Full story: savethemales.ca
Comment: The Gospel traveled westward from Jerusalem to the West Coast of the United States. There in 1906 at a meeting on Azusa Street, Los Angeles, the gifts of the Holy Spirit manifest in a cross-eyed Negro Brother with no more sense than to believe what God said is Truth. This lit the worldwide Pentecostal Revival and began the Laodicean Church Age that ended in 1965. The jubilee of Laodicea in 1956/7 was America's last opportunity for national repentance. Then God's prophet William Branham said, America like Esau, has come to the place of no more repentance.
In 1933 and again in 1964 and 1965, Brother Branham prophesied the Gentile dispensation will end with an earthquake that will sink Los Angeles "and a fifteen hundred mile chunk of earth, three or four hundred miles wide" will sink beneath the ocean, sending tidal waves around the world. We need to turn to Christ, who is God manifest, for solace and inspiration, right now! We need to discover First Principles, right now! When Los Angeles sinks there will be no more mercy for Jew or Gentile. Redemption was over with the opening of the Seven Seals in 1963. The 144,000 elect Israelites were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary.
Bear in mind that 2006 will be the jubilee of the Azusa Street jubilee. The Gospel of judgment is about to return to the East "in the day of vengeance of our God".
When the Jewish church and Roman state united for the first crucifixion God could not bear to witness the sight of His Son when "He was wounded for their transgressions and bruised for their iniquities; the chastisement of their peace was upon Him, and with His stripes they were healed"; so the Sun went down in the middle of the day, the Moon and stars refused to shine, and an earthquake tore apart the rocks of the mountains.
The prophet who foretold the first crucifixion also foretold the second will be complete when the Roman church unites with the Jewish state. "For the stars of heaven and the constellations shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in its going forth, and the moon shall not shine. . . I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall move out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger" (Isaiah 13:9-16; Isaiah 14; Daniel 9:27).
Today if you hear God speaking to you, do not harden your hearts like all Israel who rebelled in the desert, or all Israel when they crucified Messiah. Soon the greatest earthquake since the creation of man will shake not just Earth but Sun, Moon and stars one Nisan 14 and it will be too late to turn to God and Christ for solace. Your day of salvation is now!

Watching the Gazan Fiasco
August 17, 2005 A great charade is taking place in front of the world media in the Gaza Strip. It is the staged evacuation of 8,000 Jewish settlers from their illegal settlement homes, and it has been carefully designed to create imagery to support Israel's US-backed takeover of the West Bank and cantonization of the Palestinians.

Public Education: Schools, Financiers, & Social Cleansing
August 13, 2005 Today, and particularly so in Westernized nations, big money, or corporate/philanthropic wealth, dictates political power and social philosophy. What is good for corporate profits is political and socio-economic globalization. What is detrimental to globalization is non-funded opinion. In other words, the opinions of the world's masses are 1) not considered, and 2) a danger to those intent upon changing global systems to enhance and grow power and wealth.
In a world dominated by elites and their wealth, political power and social philosophy is purchased by the highest bidder. Wealth and power is inextricably bound together in funding bureaucracies that have, for centuries, controlled academia and its perceived expertise. Contemporary "expertise," which is exclusively based upon funding and grants, is nothing more than purchased spokespersons for the desires of the world's power mongers. In other words, the world's "experts" are the outspoken prostitutes of their financial backers. Funding manipulates and buys any and all desired expert opinion.
The world is now living under the decisions of highly paid "experts." These people are credentialed by bought and paid for universities, are members of elite think tanks, and the friends of friends in very high places. Their needs and motivations are very different from the needs and desires of the world's massesvery different, indeed.
The world's people have been sold a bill of goods called sustainability and equity. For decades, academic experts have been on a mission to prove the highly funded opinions of their financial backers. It is a system that is embroiled with manipulation, arrogance, cash, and total disrespect and disregard to all who are outside the circle of financial influence. This is terribly evident with America's border issues, which are the direct result of economic globalization, which really means corporate power, cheap labor, and profits.

Larry Franklin Case: AIPAC Leaders Snared
August 4, 2005 US Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, Paul McNulty, announced the indictment of two former top officials of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee), on charges of "conspiracy to communicate national defense information to persons not entitled to receive it." The same indictment included new espionage charges against Pentagon desk officer and Air Force Reserve Colonel Lawrence Franklin . . . the same basic cast of characters is tied up in the Valerie Plame Wilson leak probe, headed by independent counsel Patrick Fitzgerald . . .

Articles of Impeachment and Indictment for High Crimes
In several previous Pravda.Ru articles, I discussed my hypothesis that the primary motivating force in the world resides not in the struggle between "good and evil," but in the competition between various forms of evil.
Saddam Hussein, for example, represented a recognizable form of evil with his overt use of repression, torture and murder. Yet during the Cold War Hussein's evil was perfectly acceptable to, and even encouraged by, the United States government. Only after Hussein's usefulness to the United States expired did his evil arouse members of the Bush dictatorship, lusting for war and eager to disseminate their lies about Iraq's alleged "weapons of mass destruction," and Hussein's alleged "connection" to the events of September 11th.
George W. Bush and his criminal cabal, however, represent a more seductive, and therefore more dangerous, form of evil. This is the evil that deceives people into thinking that by supporting wrongdoing they are somehow supporting righteousness, that waging a war based upon lies somehow encourages peace and honesty, that creating the conditions for terrorism to thrive somehow "combats" terrorism, that promoting oppression somehow supports freedom, and that engaging in immoral and/or criminal conduct somehow makes one a moral person.

Globalization's Next Victim: US Production, Wealth, Power, Services and Technology are slip-sliding away to the East
July 10, 2005 President Bush says the US economy is the envy of the world, and Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan insists economic growth is solid despite a bit of froth, but the truth is that the global economic scene is now more troubled than at any time since the trade wars with Japan 20 years ago.
The US trade deficit was considered unsustainable at around $25 billion annually by the Reagan administration. It is now nearing $700 billion, an unprecedented 6 percent of our gross domestic product. . . How, if the United States is the envy of the world, can we be having all these problems?

Britain's Police State: The Cry now is "Treason" or the Star Chamber
Treason therefore, is the next logical step in the escalation of the state's war on its own population; the logic is inescapable, for in order to justify its attacks on our right to dissent, it is necessary to widen the meaning of what it is to be a dissenter, a process that has no effective end, for ultimately, to protest against such widening of powers itself falls under the heading of dissent. It's Joseph Heller's 'Catch-22' with a vengeance, the vengeance of an all-powerful state.

Be Strong and of a Good Courage
Matthew 24:3, 32-34, "As Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples asked Him privately . . . What shall be the sign of . . . the end of the world order?"
Jesus replied, "Now learn a lesson from the fig tree; When her branch is tender and leaves begin to sprout, you know that summer is near: Likewise, when you see all these things [I have just explained] coming to pass, know that the world harvest is near, even at the door. I assure you this generation shall not die through old age until all these things are fulfilled".
Jesus was not speaking of His generation but of the generation that sees the fig tree, Israel, restored to nationhood. The youngest of that generation at the age of accountability in 1948 would be almost seventy today. Seventy is a lifespan, so the translation of Christ's end-time Bride and the commencement of Daniel's Seventieth Week are at the door.
Most people can discern the weather by looking heavenward, but are either disinterested or unable to discern the signs and prognostications of God's unchanging Word by an appeal to heaven.
In Revelation 8:13 three woes are announced by a solitary eagle. His appearance anticipates the battle-field scene of Revelation 19:17-18 where birds of prey are summoned to the great slaughter of God's enemies. He is the living creature whose characteristics will be impressed on the nature of Brother Branham and all of the saints redeemed under the Fourth Seal.
From the opening of the Seven Seals Brother Branham stood in the Light of the Sun at its zenith anointed by the fullness of the Spirit, whose Message lightened earth with His glory (Revelation 8:13; 14:9-12; 18:1-3). His mighty eagle cry was, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the abode of demons, and the prison of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown rich through the abundance of her delicacies".
This is the Message of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7: the "Shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 and the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:1-13 that wakes the sleeping virgin and baptizes the wise into the Body of Christ.
"And I [your name] heard another voice from heaven, saying, "Come out of her, My people, lest you partake of her sins, and receive of her plagues. For her sins are heaped as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Render her as she herself has paid, and repay her double for her deeds: Mix a double draught for her in the cup which she has mixed. As she has glorified herself and lived in sensuality, so give her a like measure of torment and sorrow. Because in her heart she says, I sit as queen, I am no helpless widow, mourning I will never see. Therefore on a single day her plagues will come upon her, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for the Lord God who judges her is mighty. . ."
Throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ's end-time Bride. These Words in Revelation 18:4-20 are the "Voice of the Archangel" in the heart of Christ's end-time Bride confirming the Message from Genesis to Revelation by echoing the inspiration of the Prophet, and expounding the nuclear judgment to come upon the first Babylon, Rome.
Jesus said His end-time Bride would gather wherever His 'parousia' Coming was recognized. God's prophets are likened to an eagle, and we as little eagles gather around the living Body Word of the end-time Message to feed our souls on the hidden mysteries now revealed from the unsealed Book (Matthew 24:27-28; Revelation 10:7-11).
Moses was a type of Church organization which failed God. When Moses smote the Rock a second time instead of speaking to it, he took glory upon himself, signifying the insufficiency of the Word and the second crucifixion now taking place at the bloody hands of unbelieving denominations. Like the unbelieving Israelites who perished in the desert, the denominations have wandered in a spiritual desert for a generation since the Seals were revealed and will not cross into the holy convocation of this Bride Age where the mystery of God is finished and a seven course Spiritual meal is prepared as towns and villages, farms and their crops were prepared for Israel on the other side of Jordan.
One day Brother Branham saw a Bible come down before him, and a hand from above turned the pages to Joshua 1:1-9, the same Scripture God gave to Joshua, "Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be dismayed: for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Brother Branham was the mighty angel of Revelation 18:21 who veiled the Son of Man, Who is our Joshua now that we have crossed from Egypt and the Church Ages into Canaan and the holy convocation.
On their journey to Canaan, Israel was a generation of sign-seekers like the denominations are today. On the other side of Jordan the new generation put God's Word first, believed and followed the Ark. We are to take the spoken Word to God's written Word and walk by faith, knowing that like the children of Israel, we too are confronted by pagan adversaries, but by grace through faith when we speak the Word we will "have good success".
The second Babylon, the Jew's Hollywood, will sink beneath the Pacific as prophesied in Revelation 18:21-24. While hunting in Sunset Mountain Brother Branham spoke Judgment on the West Coast of America when the Lord said, "Pick up that rock, and tell Brother Banks Wood, THUS SAITH THE LORD, within a day and a night you'll see the Glory of God."
Brother Branham threw the rock up into the air, and the next day the Glory of God came in a whirlwind that cut the tops off the trees about three to five feet above his head and blasted rocks out from the mountain. Every single rock had three corners showing the three Offices are but one God. Circling three times, it said "Judgment striking West Coast."
"You have to do something to cause something to follow it. Jesus took a piece of bread and broke it, then multiplied from that piece of bread. He took water, poured it into a pitcher. Elijah took salt, put it in a curse; cut down a stick, throwed it on the water. It's something to symbolize. And picking up this rock and throwing it into the air, and coming down started the whirlwind. Two days after that Fairbanks, Alaska, almost sunk."
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."
"And this scientist was speaking, being on a interview. We was watching on television. And he said, "Beneath that is just a churning lava." And he said, "A chunk will break loose," and said, And this man this chief scientist said to him, "Well, could that all sink?"
He said, "Could? It's got to."
Said, "Well, 'course, will probably be many, many years from now."
He said, "It can be in five minutes from now, or it can be in five years from now." He just 'lotted five years.
"But just as I surely was standing there under that Inspiration, put judgment on that West Coast, and then followed it right up here with [the prophecy of] the sinking of Los Angeles; she's gone! That's right. It will happen. When? I don't know."
"But, oh, what happened? You know, we only got six continents now. We had seven; that one that sunk between Africa and the United States. . . Oh, it's historical; you know about it. Now, if that goes down, then I want you to watch when. . ." (Ashamed, p. 9:52-59).
That Good Friday earthquake was a token of the Good Friday earthquake that will end the Gentile dispensation.
Revelation 18:21-24, "A mighty angel (William Branham) took up a stone like a great millstone (his Message, Christ, the fullness of the Word Psalm 118:22-23; Isaiah 8:13-15; Daniel 2:45), and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence (the sudden catastrophe of an earthquake) will that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. And the sound of harpers and musicians, and flute players and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore; (the vanity of the arts stood high in Babylon, the apostate church as she increased in worldliness, as it does among the Hollywood crowd); no industry of any sort will ever exist there, not even the light of lamp will be seen to shine again. No more weddings will be celebrated in her. Her merchants became known throughout the world as she deceived all nations with her sorceries. (Television and movies can have the effect of mind-altering drugs). And in Los Angeles as in Vatican City State was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth".
Revelation 19:1-7, "After the indictment of the false church, the exodus of the Bride, and the physical manifestation of the earthquake that sinks Los Angeles, I [your name] heard as one great voice a multitude in the heaven, saying, Halleluia! The salvation, and the glory, and the power belong to our God: for His judgments are true and just: for He has pronounced sentence on the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her idolatry, and avenged the blood of His servants at her hand. And a second time they cried, Halleluia! The smoke of her burning will ascend forever and ever. And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God who is seated on the throne, saying, Amen! Halleluia!"
And the twenty-four elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God who is seated on the throne, saying, Amen! Halleluia! And a voice came forth from the throne, saying, Give praise to our God, all His servants, and those that revere Him, small and great."
Here is the shout of the Bride saints with the Bridegroom going to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb: "And I [your name] heard as the voice of a great multitude, and as a voice of many waters, and as a voice of mighty thunders, saying, Halleluia: for the Lord God Almighty has begun to reign. Let us rejoice and exult and give glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready." Now is the time for Christ's 'parousia' Coming to Israel, but we will encounter Brother Branham again in Revelation 19:9-10 and 22:6-11.
Revelation is a Book of Old Testament symbols. In Genesis 1:14-19 God set two lights in the firmament for signs and to illumine the Earth, the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. The Sun and the Moon type Christ the Logos and its shadow, the Law. In the presence of the Sun the light of the Moon is ineffectual and has no dominion, for grace by faith makes void the Law of works (Romans 4:14; Hebrews 10:1).
This is illustrated in Revelation 12:1: the Sun signifies God's Righteousness manifest in Christ, the Angel of the Covenant (Malachi 4:2); the woman is His Wife and glory, the elect Church crowned by the twelve apostles (I Corinthians 11). The Moon under her feet is the Law which reflected a shadow of the Sun's Light in the absence of the Sun, whom she must obey in everything (Genesis 3:16; Ephesians 5:24; I Timothy 2:9-15). The Son has come down from God out of heaven to meet His Wife in the air (I Thessalonians 4:14-16, Revelation 10:1-6, 9-10; 18:1-3 and 19:11-16).
There is a correlation between the six days when God spoke His creation, which He declared "very good," and the seventh day in which His spoken Word transformed a material chaos into perfect order, and the Seven Seals and the Vials of God's wrath upon the non-elect church to distinguish the foolish virgin from the sinner. Hereby the foolish virgin is purged for correction and redemption, and the sinners are separated for judgment so that God can restore order to His creation in a renewed heavens and a renewed earth.
Israel determined her months by the new Moon which was announced by the blowing of a trumpet (Numbers 10:10). Under the Law her religious festivals occupied the seven months of ingathering from Nisan to Tishri. The Trumpets of these seven new Moons type the Seven Trumpets of Israel's chastisement in Revelation 15 and 16. The national disasters that befell ancient Israel under the trumpets of these seven months foreshadow God's judgments after Calvary under their Spiritual antitype.
The mysteries of the Seals reveal God's warfare against Satan in the redemption of Spiritual Israel, the Church, while the mysteries of the Trumpets describe political warfare God allowed Satan to inflict on natural Israel for correction and chastisement to ready her for redemption by fulfilling the sixfold purpose of Gabriel's instructions to Gabriel.
Revelation 14:6-12 foretold three angels would be sent to reform the Roman Catholic system of worship. These men were Martin Luther who delivered the everlasting Gospel of salvation by grace through faith to every nation; John Wesley with his Message of holiness; and William Branham who restored the faith, finished the mystery of God, and warned of the apostasy. Each Message was rejected by the majority of those to whom it was sent. Brother Branham said, "As Israel (chosen people of God) in majority forfeited their rights in the Book of Life by rejecting Jesus, so the majority of the Gentile church (chosen people of God Ed) will also come into condemnation with the resultant removal of their names from the Book of Life by rejecting the Word and thereby entering into the world ecumenical movement which is the image erected unto the beast . . . All these people had their names in the Book of Life. . . But whose names did not remain? Those of the world system churches who fought the Bride will be those whose names are removed. That is who will lose out. They will be cast into the lake of fire" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 274:2; 279:2).
In Revelation chapters 12 and 18, and in the four last Seals and three last Trumpets, Jesus warns believers that hell is about to break loose in the great tribulation where Israel will recognize the true Church as God's tabernacle in heaven and distinguish it from the false church and Synagogue of Satan, which is the haunt of every foul and hateful demon on earth.
Brother Branham's Message calls the elect to come out of Babylon and warns the non-elect, "Whoever worships the beast and its image, and receives his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, shall drink the wine of God's wrath, poured undiluted into the cup of His anger, and he shall be tortured with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the Presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever: and they have no rest day or night, these worshipers of the beast and his image, and those who receive the mark of his name. Let this encourage endurance in the saints, and those who keep the Commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus." His Message also calls the birds of the air to feast upon these defeated enemies of God and His people under the Seventh Trumpet after the Bride has gone Home for the Wedding Supper (Revelation 19:17-18; Ezekiel 39:17).
Now is the time of marking. After six thousand years, everyone, even the disinterested will bear the Seal of God, or the mark of Cain. Three Woes follow the rejection of the angels' Messages. These Woes are earth's birth pains under the three last Trumpets of the First, Second and Third World Wars, which impact not only Israelites and Jews but all inhabiters of the Earth (Revelation 8:13).
In World War I the armored tanks, machine guns, poison gas and aerial warfare with hand-dropped bombs implied in Revelation 9:1-12, produced the First Woe of Earth's birth pains. In the Second Woe of World War II her birth pains were increased with submarines, blockbuster and atomic bombs. And as we near the "hot" stage of World War III her time of deliverance is at hand, for science has broken into God's great laboratory and man can now destroy himself and the planet by his wisdom. Brother Branham said, "One more war will throw Earth out into space, for she will now be delivered. And there will be a New Earth (Birth Pains, p. 15:3-16:3; This Day This Scripture is Fulfilled, p. 4:27-29; The Rapture, p. 37:177).
Lucifer, the king of demons and angel of the abyss or "deep" was given the key of unbelief by which he empowered demons to plague sinful mankind under the Fifth Trumpet of World War I. Satan is the god of this Laodicean Church Age which has ended in the chaos of apostasy that will lead to Armageddon.
The natural types the Spiritual. In His second day of creating order out of chaos, God spoke the firmament or sky between the waters that are below, and the waters that were above it. Then on the fifth day He spoke the flying creatures to dwell in the open firmament of heaven and the fishes to live in the sea.
Genesis 7:11, "In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened."
The waters above the firmament and the waters that were beneath the firmament merged in a return to primeval chaos. The "deep," abyss, or bottomless pit, the farthest extreme from heaven (Genesis 49:25; Deuteronomy 33:13) and from the high mountains (Psalm 36:6) was understood to be the place of the imprisoned floodwaters, and the abode of God's enemy, while the heavenlies above was the realm of angels and where the Accuser of the Brethren confronted the Lord.
In the Laodicean Church Age galloping apostasy in the churches opened the prison house of the bottomless pit, releasing the demons of previous generations as a smoke of deception that obscured men's view of the Sun of Righteousness by darkening the fourth dimension or "air" through which we receive revelation that brings Life to our soul as clean air sustains our natural life.
No other account in Genesis has such a marked precision of dating as the Flood. The narrator dates it to the very year, month and day, a parallel of exactness also associated with the Sixth Trumpet. Revelation 9:13-15, "And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar, which is before God, saying to the sixth angel, which had the trumpet, "Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates." And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour and a day and a month and a year, to slay the third part of men." That is, Israelites.
Revelation chapter 7 is in parenthesis between the Sixth and Seventh Seals to explain what takes place under the Fourth and Sixth Seals as pertaining to Israel. Revelation 7:1-3, "After the revelation of the first six written Seals, I [your name] saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree."
Winds signify war and strife. The fact that they are blowing from the four cardinal points indicates that this is the first universal or World War. These angels are Satan as four horse riders or angels of judgment that oversee the fourth Gentile world empire to accomplish God's purpose in chastising Israel with a view to her correction, instruction in righteousness, and national redemption as the Lord revealed in Daniel 7-12.
Had God not stopped World War I, Armageddon would have come to pass before He could send two angels to gather Israel's elect from the four winds (Matthew 24:31; Zechariah 4; Revelation 11). God deals with us elect Gentiles as individuals when and wherever we live. But He deals with Israel as a nation; consequently their elect will be living in the Land because outside Israel their Covenant is of no effect. Thus all Israel will be born-again in one day: all 144,000 (Isaiah 66:8; 9:14; Numbers 17:8; Ezekiel 39:22; Daniel 9:24-27; Zechariah 3:9-10; Revelation 7:1-8, etc.).
In a parody of Revelation 7, Brother Branham said, "I've sent a persecution here and a persecution there, and I've run the Jews and drove them as hard as I could. And they've drove back in. Many Jews in the United Stateswhich they won't escape from" (C.O.D., p. 97:235).
"All the angels coming forth, the destroying angel to destroy the world in a war . . . You get it? The Angels of God with destroying weapons, coming forth to destroy the world. . . And what did the Holy Spirit say? "Hold the four winds (hold the World War, this global destruction), until we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads." The Gentile never was a servant; the Jew's a servant. And John recognized them every one: a hundred and forty-four thousand of the Jews."
(My Jewish friends, even if you are an Israelite born of the pure blood of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, which is unlikely according to population statistics in published every encyclopedia, but even if you are one of the 144,000 you will remain a servant. If however, you are born into the Body of Christ, you will be Royalty and joint heirs with Messiah).
"Look, God over-shooting now, saying, "Hold these wars here; don't let total destruction, total annihilation come until we have sealed a hundred and forty-four thousand Jews." Then at that time. . . Oh, watch what taken place. All the world was going to war; and all of a sudden, it stopped. And I've read The Decline of World War One. No man knows today why it stopped; no man give any orders for it to stop. But it was stopped on November the eleventh (That right?), the eleventh month in the year, the eleventh hour in the day, the eleventh minute after eleven. What was it? That the eleventh hour people could come in. He said, "Some come in at one received the penny," and on down. And the eleventh hour people got the same kind of a penny that they got at the beginningeleventh hour people" (Mark of the Beast, #55-0312).
The eleventh hour people are the 144,000 elect natural Israelites who will receive the same hirebaptism with the Holy Ghost or new birthas the Church (Matthew 20:1-16).
The Pharisees disputing Jesus protested, "We are Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how can You say, You shall be made free?"
Jesus answered, "Verily, verily, I tell you, whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin, and the servant does not abide in the house for ever: but the Son abide ever" (John 8:33-35).
These Pharisees thought entrance into the kingdom of God was based on biology, having forgotten that Abraham was God's servant (Genesis 26:24), a Gentile God honored because of his faith, not his pagan parentage. Like Dan and Ephraim, natural Israel became excluded from God's Kingdom because of sin, while Messiah turned to we Gentiles to call a Bride, a people for His Name (I Peter 2:9). Since Calvary every elect Israelite has received Messiah and been circumcised in heart and ears to become a Spiritual Israelite: a Son or Daughter of God and a child of Abraham (Romans 9; Galatians 3).
Galatians 4:1-7, "When the time had come for Israel's maturity, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, to redeem those who were under the Law, so that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore you are no longer a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ".
True Israel is the elect Church of Jesus Christ, a Spiritual Kingdom. Natural Israel, so long as she was outside the Land and therefore the Covenant was not a nation. God had to stop World War I in order to return Israel back to the Promised Land and the Covenant. Even in the Promised Land, those outside the Covenant are not Israel.
A review of history from 1914 to 1934 indicates that the international banksters fomented World War I to bring about conditions favourable for revolutionary action and thus enable them to obtain undisputed control of the Russian Empire; to remove the crowned heads of Europe so that they could achieve their totalitarian ambitions; and to force the British and French governments to agree to establish a national home for the Jews in Palestine.
The government of Britain was forced to aid the international bankers' plan for the Bolshevik revolution in Russia in 1917 in order to obtain their promise that they would bring America into the war on the side of the allies. It can be assumed that S.S. Lusitania was sunk to provide the necessary incident to justify the change of American policy, just as Pearl Harbour was used as an excuse for America to enter World War II.
The original draft of the mandate on Palestine reads: "TO TURN PALESTINE INTO A NATIONAL HOME FOR THE JEWS." It was altered at the last minute to read "to establish a National Home for the Jew IN PALESTINE." This was done to conceal the secret ambitions of the Zionists.
The international bankers deliberately concealed the truth regarding the vast mineral deposits geologists had discovered in Palestine until AFTER the governments of Britain, France, and the United States had agreed to their Mandate of Palestine. (The truth regarding the value of mineral resources was not allowed to leak out until the United Nations had partitioned Palestine in 1948 in such a manner that over five trillion dollars' worth of minerals are now known to be located in the State of Israel. Count Bernadotte of Sweden proposed that the Jews should give up all of the south, and receive West Galilee in the north. His plan was rejected and in September 1947 Count Bernadotte was assassinated by Jewish extremists).
The international bankers used Zionism to obtain control of a centrally located Sovereign State from which they could extend the control they now exert over the U.S.S.R. to cover the entire World. The conspirators managed international affairs between 1921 and 1934 so that Europe was divided into two campsFascist and Anti-Fascistin preparation for World War II (William Guy Carr, Pawns in the Game, p. 108).
Despite the deceitful Balfour Declaration, the real motives of Germany and "the City" in calling a halt to World War I, and the seizure of Palestine from the Ottoman Empire, God turns all things to the good of His elect, while the perpetrators of evil will be judged. God does not need to break His Word in order to fulfill His promises (Zechariah 4:7; Romans 8:28). As the Israelites had no desire to forsake the good life among us Gentiles in order to pioneer a new State, God permitted World War II to force the issue.
The Prophet said, "We find thousands times thousands of Jews. God hardened Pharaoh's heart to drive them to Palestine. God hardened Hitler's heart, Mussolini's heart, Stalin's heart. He's driving by force into Palestine, not knowing what he's doing, working right in the hands of God."
"Them hundred and forty-four thousand will stand yonder. And one of these days, some Divine, holy, anointed prophet of God will go over there with signs and wonders. Those Jews will say, "That's what I'm looking for." Yes, sir. And God will baptize a hundred and forty-four thousand Jews."
". . . the Gentile age will cease. The atomic bomb will explode and take the world. And the Gentile church will be raptured up to stand there in the Presence of God. "Who are these that come up out of the great tribulation? Washed their robes in the Blood of the Lamb. They are before God, without spot. Amen."
"Mark of the beast, confederation of churches, Catholicism, all bound together, go into chaos. The remnant, the Holy Ghost Bride . . ."
"And the people today that are laughing at speaking in tongues, that are laughing at Divine healing, that are laughing at prophecy, that are laughing at the manifestation of the Spirit; and the same spirit that dominated those Jews back here, that blasphemed the Holy Ghost back there, and died under Divine judgment. . . This United States is bound for Divine judgment under the power of the Holy Ghost. They've condemned, and make fun, and turned out, and call us "holy-rollers" and everything else. But the hour is here when God will pour out His Divine judgment. Amen" (The Seal of God, p. 37:270-281, 298). nl390.htm
