Bible Believers' Newsletter 435
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; thanks for your fellowship in God's unchanging Word.
Nations are breaking, Israel's not yet awakening.
The signs that the prophets foretold;
The Gentile days numbered, with horrors encumbered;
Eternity soon will unfold.
Politicians anxious for glory they do not merit, and will not receive, have led Israel into the valley of the shadow of death as planned by the 'hidden hand' to whom they are compliant pawns in his endgame for world hegemony. As the prophet Balaam said, "God cannot bless what He has cursed." God said to Israel, "Stand at the Crossroads, and look; ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; then walk in it, and find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk in it".
In this issue of the Newsletter we illustrate the beatitudes in Lebanon and signs of the uniting time. As Israel pulls the world into the "hot" stage of World War III, the Lord will "put hooks in the jaws" of the king of the North, and mobilize his host. The Trumpet of the Lord will sound, and after a short and powerful demonstration of the "third pull," time shall be no more for Christ's hunted and persecuted little Bride.
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
On Catholics and Pentecostals A Historical Overview
(by Father Juan Usma Gómez,Official of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity).
Vatican City, July 20, 2006 Catholics and Pentecostals meet all over the world and confront each other everywhere. Aggression and diffidence have frequently been at the root of their relations: the desire to convert clouds minds and hearts. Pentecostals have difficulty in recognizing the saving value of the Catholic Church and of the sacraments, whereas many Catholics view with suspicion the proliferation of divine interventions and consider the promises of healing, prophecies and spiritual gifts as forms of proselytism.
The Catholic-Pentecostal international dialogue began in 1972. It should be remembered that 40 years ago, Catholics were in the dark about Pentecostal spirituality and missiology. Nor did the majority of Pentecostals know of the rich spirituality and missionary vitality of Catholics. Catholics and Pentecostals were diffident and wary of each other.
The contact established between them, thanks to the appearance of Catholic Charismatic Renewal together with the participation of a Pentecostal leader (David du Plessis) in the Second Vatican Council, made it possible to initiate a dialogue with several leaders and groups of the classical Pentecostals. This dialogue aimed at deepening their knowledge of each other and at overcoming reciprocal misunderstandings.
Today, through documents published for the International Catholic Pentecostal Dialogue, Catholics and Pentecostals can recognize certain confessional traits proper to their dialogue partner and can understand the basic reasons for some of their attitudes. The process is far from easy. Indeed, their missiology and expression of spirituality are not the same, while their approach to theology is radically different. . . Full story: zenit.org
Comment: In 1963 Brother Branham said, "The Council of churches over there now that's meeting in Rome. This circular letter that my good friend, David duPlessis, when I set there and cried to him about it, at Fourteen Mile Creek, not long ago; not realizing he swung the church right into Babylon, when everybody saying, "Oh, all the churches are going to be one now." Yeah, I know that, see, just exactly what's wrote on my book of prophecy in 1933, that would take place. Why, don't you realize that's Satan uniting together? The Bible says that. And just after a bit, just a little while, as soon as they become one, then the interdenominational is finished. See? There'll be your mark of the beast rise. See?" (Souls in Prison Now, p. 30:202).
"[The Rockefeller family member] asked me what I thought of the 'women's movement,' and I told him that I support equal opportunity," Russo continues. "He looked at me and said, 'You know, you're such an idiot in some ways. We'meaning the people he works with'created the women's movement, and we promote it. And it's not about equal opportunity. It's designed to get both parents out of the home and into the workforce, where they will pay taxes. And then we can decide how the children will be raised and educated.' That's how they control societyby removing the parents from the home and then raising the children as the elitists see fit."
Russo recalls conversations in 2000 with his Rockefeller acquaintance that, in hindsight, seemed to portend 9/11 and its aftermath.
"About a year before 9/11, this guy was telling me that there would be 'an event' in this country that would change it dramatically," declares Russo. "He was predicting a war in Afghanistan and in the Middle East to control the region's energy reserves, and at some points he was actually laughing about it."
"I know how evil these people are," Russo said grimly. Full story: thenewamerican.com
Behind the feminist movement, like a shadow, was the super elite lusting for controlover men, over women, over children, over the workplace, over education, eventually over society itself. Radical feministsobsessed with gender politics but never looking behind the sceneshave been great useful idiots for over 40 years. Feminism was never really about women or their opportunities, which is why its benefits, viewed objectively, turn out to be illusory. A lot of women have filled their prescribed roles unwittingly. Still more have followed their leaders naively. Political correctness has been a good tool for gaining the cooperation of menor, at least, intimidating many of them into silence. Thus today's "feminized" order: women don't trust men; men don't trust women. Women have careers in record numbers; their children are in state-sponsored daycare where they begin their indoctrination into New World Order globalism and the Earth Charter. Neither men nor women have lives. Neither pays significant attention to their real enemies at the top.

While most people have reached a (false) conclusion that the US has failed to shape Iraq according to its planned agenda, it is not hard to see that the US is carrying out its original plan to destroy Iraq and colonize its people and national resources . . .

Hezbollah's Attacks stem from Israeli incursions into Lebanon
August 1, 2006 As pundits and policymakers scramble to explain events in Lebanon, their conclusions are virtually unanimous: Hezbollah created this crisis. Israel is defending itself. The underlying problem is Arab extremism.
Sadly, this is pure analytical nonsense. Hezbollah's capture of two Israeli soldiers on July 12 was a direct result of Israel's silent but unrelenting aggression against Lebanon, which in turn is part of a six-decades long Arab-Israeli conflict.
Since its withdrawal of occupation forces from southern Lebanon in May 2000, Israel has violated the United Nations-monitored "blue line" on an almost daily basis, according to UN reports. Hezbollah's military doctrine, articulated in the early 1990s, states that it will fire Katyusha rockets into Israel only in response to Israeli attacks on Lebanese civilians or Hezbollah's leadership; this indeed has been the pattern.
In the process of its violations, Israel has terrorized the general population, destroyed private property, and killed numerous civilians. This past February, for instance, 15-year-old shepherd Yusuf Rahil was killed by unprovoked Israeli cross-border fire as he tended his flock in southern Lebanon. Israel has assassinated its enemies in the streets of Lebanese cities and continues to occupy Lebanon's Shebaa Farms area, while refusing to hand over the maps of mine fields that continue to kill and cripple civilians in southern Lebanon more than six years after the war supposedly ended. What peace did Hezbollah shatter?
Hizbullah's capture of the soldiers took place in the context of this ongoing conflict, which in turn is fundamentally shaped by realities in the Palestinian territories. To the vexation of Israel and its allies, Hezbollaheasily the most popular political movement in the Middle Eastunflinchingly stands with the Palestinians. . . Full story: csmonitor.com
Israeli Justice Minister Haim Ramon announced on Israeli army radio, "All those in south Lebanon are terrorists who are related in some way to Hezbollah." Full story: countercurrents.org

I set watchmen over you who warned you saying, Give heed to the sound of the trumpet! But you said, We will not hear. Therefore hear, O nations, and know what will happen to them. . .
