Bible Believers' Newsletter 493
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ and extend an especial welcome to our new subscribers.
"Work diligently to present yourself approved of God, a doer, not a hearer only, having no cause for the shame of not rightly dividing the Word of truth" (II Timothy 2:15). Remember, the Body of Christ is built upon a clear understanding, and application of the faith, not learning history and memorizing the letter, commendable as that is. Brother Branham said, "No true believer is any stronger and spiritually healthy and alive than his knowledge of and adherence to the pure Word of God, as seen by multitudes of examples in the Old Testament. Organization was growing apace, confirming and augmenting the death of the membership, for Holy Ghost leadership was deposed and the Word was replaced by creeds, dogmas and man-made ritual" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 113:1).
Please study the Scriptures and cross-links in every Newsletter. Prove all things to ensure you have the mind of Christ in you. Friendship with the world can make you an enemy of God. Brother Branham read Revelation 2:9, "I know thy works and thy tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan."
He went on to read Hebrews 10:32-38, "But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions; Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used. For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance. Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and He that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him." Then he said, "The mere association of kindhearted people with the true believer might well bring death in return for their kindness" (ibid 115:2-3).
As Jude warned us, "Certain people have insinuated themselves into prominence within the circle of the Message, ungodly persons long marked out for this condemnation, who pervert the grace of our God into shameless insolence and deny the Lord Jesus our God." People without the Spirit are expending the time and resources of believers, leading seekers of Truth to a dead prophet by publishing and broadcasting the "letter" of his Message on the Internet, television and radio without the "Spirit." Organization is growing apace, confirming and augmenting the death of the membership; Holy Ghost leadership is deposed and Message denominations, as wolves among the sheep peddle THUS SAITH THE LORD out of context with the written Word of God. "The mere association of kindhearted people with the true believer might well bring death in return for their kindness." We need men of God to present the faith, a clear understanding of the Message, tied to the Bible from Genesis to Revelation without fear or favour.
The Messenger and the "letter" of his Message have been made into an idol as the Jew John Calvin turned "grace" into dis-grace, as Methodism transformed "sanctification" into self-righteous works without grace, and as the Pentecostals turned worship from the Giver to the Gifts. This week we will examine Jerusalem and Israel, which for political purposes have been made what they definitely are not.
You and I and most people are simple-minded, honest folk with no hidden agenda, but we are warned to beware of the Seed of the Serpent working in another occupation and under a different name: like Judas Iscariot, he is among the most trusted disciples of this Message (Genesis 4:14; Matthew 23:33-35; 24:24; John 8:44; II Corinthians 1:14).
Let us consider his cunning. Having conquered Russia and begun the extermination of at least 66 million nominal Christians, he invaded Germany after World War I, established Judaeo-Communism in Bavaria and Prussia, then groomed and funded Hitler to help prosecute Zionist plans which had long called for an extermination of six million Jews as the incentive needed to motivate them to colonize Palestine. The Jew Hitler was duped into segregating (NOT exterminating) and warehousing Jews in Byelorussia, so that after, and even during World War II, large numbers would be available, generally against their wishes, for relocation in Palestine, to realize the plans of the political Zionists a Rothschild 'front.' After the War, Germans who knew too much were killed, while those deemed useful were resettled in the USA.
It was not taught that way in school but investigations into tax-exempt foundations by the Reece Committee of the US Congress in 1953 found that the Rockefeller Organization holds the worldwide franchise on education.
After Stalin was poisoned, the Russians recovered their country from the Bolsheviks whose leaders relocated and took over the United States. One of their objectives is regain power in Russia and destroy the USA. Jeremiah 25, Ezekiel 38 and 39, Revelation 17, and Brother Branham assure us they will achieve this purpose. Although there is not a democratic country on the face of the earth, the 'hidden hand' is imposing their Hegelian sham democracy upon the Russians, a people unsuited to democracy.
The City of London wants Russia to be focused on the internal problems their subversives are causing, rather than Zionist aggression in the Middle East when the City starts its nuclear war against Iran. Shifting its pretext from Iran's alleged nuclear ambitions to guarding against the importation of weapons, Britain sent 350 of 500 troops drawn down from Iraq to guard the border with Iran, and Georgia has sent 1,200 extra troops to patrol Iraq's border with Iran. Pretext is pretense for the press, the Money Power decided on war 150 years ago. Hence Turkey has been kept out of the EU and the Kurds used to create friction with Syria, Turkey, Iraq and Iran, dividing Islam. These reports linked in earlier Newsletters expose the lies, deceit and disinformation presented by our alien-controlled media to form a pretext on which our alien-controlled governments will send fathers and sons, and now mothers and daughters, to fight their wars for global hegemony. Can you say "WMD"? Read the links in the story Ankara Pillories Iraqi Kurds.
Brother Branham said, "The mental faculties of men, they can't make decisions. I'm not a politician. . . Neither Democrat nor Republican, they're all filthy. I'm for one Kingdom and that's the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. That's all . . . Did you ever see a bunch of puppets like we got up there now? Like that bunch of Texans we got in there. Why, they say, "Whatever the people wants. If they want Communism, we'll give them Communism. If they want integration, we'll give them integration. Want segregation, we give . . . whatever." Where is men?
Oh, God, that's like the pulpit. Where is men? Men that's men that stands for a principle? Where is women that stands for a principle? Where is a church that stands for a principle? I ain't got a nickel's worth of time for a wishy-washy, give in, compromising spirit" (And Knoweth it Not, 36:286-287).
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.
Mw 8.4 Sumatra Earthquake
September 12, 2007 An Mw 8.4 earthquake off the coast of Sumatra occurred on the same subduction zone as the 2004 Boxing Day earthquake that generated the huge, devastating tsunami, but it's on a segment further south and east. That means that the tsunami's propagation pattern should be different this timeand that different places are at risk. . . Full story: shearsensibility.blogspot.com usgs.gov
Air Force Official fired after 6 Nukes fly over US
Washington, September 5, 2007 A B-52 bomber was mistakenly armed with six nuclear warheads and flown for more than three hours across several states last week, prompting an Air Force investigation and the firing of one commander, Pentagon officials said Wednesday. Full story: msn.com
Comment: The USAF does not make such "mistakes," and only an "insider" would know the weapons were nuclear, so this is a psyop like the latest videos of a new Osama bin Laden who contradicts the deceased, original Osama bin Laden.
"It was a criminal conspiracy to launch nuclear terrorist attacks against US cities! Military investigators have confirmed to The Hal Turner Show that President Bush's personal Presidential authorization code authorized removal of six 5x150 kiloton nuclear warheads from their secure nuclear storage safes. Those Investigators also confirmed that the cruise missiles in which those warheads were placed were mounted on the wings of the B-52 and not placed in the belly of the plane with other missiles headed for decommissioning.
When those nuclear cruise missiles arrived at Barksdale AFB, Investigators say plans were made to move those warheads off the base, allowing them to be used for what was to be a massive, nuclear "terrorist" strike against US cities. They speculate the attacks would have been blamed on Al-Qaida and used as an excuse to impose Martial Law in the US . . . In response to this incident the US Air Force says Air Combat Command has ordered all jet fighters and bombers to remain grounded on 9/14 to review safety procedures and protocol, leaving the country without air cover protection . . .
Is this another 9/11 in the making? Israeli airline El Al has "NO FLIGHTS" departing New York on Friday September 14. They aren't saying "NO SEATS AVAILABLE" but instead "NO FLIGHT"! (But do they fly on the sabbath)?
"I'll bet anyone $500.00 that when "Al Qaeda," nudge, nudge, wink, wink, as Michael Rivero says, sets off the stolen nuke that was "lost" the other day between Minot North Dakota and Barksdale Air Force Base from one of our B-52 bombers that it'll go off in a city where there is NOT a substantial Jewish population. Now why would I make this bet? I'll tell you why. IF al Qaeda were in fact real, which it isn't, and if in fact radical Muslims who hated Jews made up its membership, which they don't because it's mostly composed of Jews, it only seems reasonable to conclude that they would choose a major American city with a large Jewish population. . .

US Northern Command has announced plans for an anti-terrorism exercise called Vigilant Shield 08. The exercise which is slated to run from October 15th to October 20th is described as a way to prepare, prevent and respond to any number of national crises . . . the nature of Vigilant Shield 08 and the admission that Hurricane Katrina was used as a test laboratory shows that the government is actively preparing the military and government institutions for martial law.
CIA Director Hayden warns of New al-Qaida Attacks
New York, September 7, 2007 In a rare public address CIA Director Gen. Michael Hayden warned of new attacks by al-Qaida (sic): "Our analysts assess with high confidence that al-Qaida's (sic) central leadership is planning high-impact plots against the US homeland." Hayden's unusual public address was made at his request at the Council of Foreign Relations. . . Full story: newsmax.com
Comment: The CFR runs the US Administration, and is the otherwise non-existent "al Qaeda." Was General Hayden telling or asking al Qaeda HQ?
The Hidden Advanced Aircraft of Bush's Black Operation 911
September 11, 2006 The most modern technology was visible on 9/11, unknowingly sponsored by the tax dollars of the American population and worst, a black program unknown even by Congress. . . Multiple advanced aerial devices were present controlling and "shepherding" the fall of the WTC towers, as well as the initial damage imposed on them. Similar vehicles were seen on the frauds performed by Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney and their felon partners at the Pentagon and at Shanksville . . . Full story: 911stealth.blogspot.com.

Regulator allows Creation of Human-animal Embryos
September 8, 2007 The Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority (HFEA) cleared the way yesterday for its experts to consider license applications from scientists wanting to combine the genetic material of human cells with animal eggs in order to create a new type of embryonic stem cell for research into debilitating disorders . . .
Last November, the HFEA received two applications for research licenses to carry out the cloning of animal eggs which have had 99 per cent of their genetic material removed and replaced with a full complement of human chromosomes. The resulting embryos will be almost entirely human but still part-animal. . . Full story: independent.co.uk
Comment: The original sin was miscegenation between Eve and the Satan-incarnate serpenta man-like creature before God changed every bone in his body. The Serpent fathered Cain. Miscegenation with Cain's race is genocide to Adam's race, as God's law of redemption mandates the redeemer must be a near kinsman and the offspring of such unions will be Cainite. Miscegenation in the days of Noah almost eliminated and apostatized Adam's race, so God allowed man to destroy that world by water. Jesus said miscegenation would repeat in the days of His 'parousia;' it is mandated by the Cainites running the UN and other proponents of Lucifer's totalitarian one world government, hence we have enforced migration of inassimilable "refugees," and even the creation of a new race of hybrids. Our world will be destroyed by atomic fire.
The making of a Neo-KGB State
"THE KGB was cut off from the post-Soviet redistribution of assets. Worse still, it was upstaged and outwitted by a tiny group of opportunists, many of them Jews (not a people beloved by the KGB), who became known as the oligarchs. Between them, they grabbed most of the country's natural resources and other privatized assets. KGB officers watched the oligarchs get super-rich while they stayed cash-strapped and sometimes even unpaid. . . (The Economist, August 25th-31st 2007, p. 26).
Germany, in the Not Too Distant Future
A pious Catholic confesses to his priest: "Forgive me, holy father, last week I was denying the Holocaust twice."
"Go in peace, my son, and sin no more."
The priest reads a new German Bible to his parishioners: Matthew 12:31-32, "Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the Holocaust denial shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever shall deny the Holocaust before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven".
Matthew 26:34-35, "Jesus said unto Peter, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny the Holocaust thrice. Peter said unto Him, Though I should die with Thee, yet will I not deny the Holocaust. Likewise also said all the disciples".
I John 2:22, "Who is a liar but he that denieth that the Holocaust happened? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son".
Luke 20:27, "Then came to Him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there was any Holocaust; and they asked him . . ."
II Peter 2:21, "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Holocaust, and bring upon themselves swift destruction".
Comment: Jesus said, "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free . . . after you have known God, or rather are known of God, how is it that you allow Christ-hating sinners to turn you back to the weak and beggarly elements whereunto you choose to be souls in prison now?"
Jerusalem and Israel
Brother Branham said, "We'll never do any good with politics. It's rotten. God's idea of having a king, a righteous king, is right. But politics just simply spread out; you can buy anything out: cheat, lie, steal, everything else. As I said a few Sundays ago: and look where you're at, see, nothing but just a crooked mass of everything. But a righteous king can make his own laws. And you can kill a man; if you're known good in politics, that's all right; you get out of it. See? . . . Democracy is a good idea, but it won't work. Just like Communism, all things in common. It sounds good, but it won't work. No. God's way of having a king like David was right. And you got one mind centered over . . . Just like one leader in a bunch of geese or so forth. You can't get two or three of them. Then you mess them all together, you come up with any kind of an idea . . ." (And Knoweth it Not, p. 7:44-45).
God has never dealt with an organization, which is why He has never dealt with the denominations. They cannot follow His Word because they are controlled by a man-made system. God only deals with one individual at a time. That's why He doesn't deal with your organization; He deals with you. He never even had two prophets at the same time: one man. God can get one man in His hand. Two men have three different ideas. God works with one man. There was one Elijah, followed by Elisha, then John the Baptist, one Jesus, and so forth, down to one Luther, one Wesley, and one Brother Branham.
The Devil and his children have spent thousands of years destroying monarchies by every conceivable means from regicide, treachery, usury, intermarriage, invasion, internal rebellion, republicanism, Hegelian sham democracies, international law, and finally, communism. The most secure form of national government is a good king. It is far more difficult for the enemy of the people to subvert a nation ruled by a king who's Absolute is God's unchanging Word than it is for him to usurp control over a nation ruled by a committee. Yet that's where nations stand in this day of elected tyrannies; parliaments are a deliberate confusion of voices sold to the alien lobbyist who best serves the lust of their eye, the lust of their flesh and their pride of life. Such characterless pawns are patronized by the 'hidden hand' to create chaos out of which the enemy of God and man can create Lucifer's totalitarian new world order, ruled by his King-Despot.
According to Protocol 17:4, "The king of the Jews will be the real pope of the universe, the patriarch of the International Church." Some people labour under the strong delusion that Rome is the enemy of the International Jews, whereas she is their creature, partner and the mutual enemy of Israel today as she was in the days of our Lord. In concert they will govern Lucifer's one world government for three and a half years; then Rome will break their agreement and they will blast Vatican City State and the United States off the face of the earth (Daniel 7:15-26; 9:27; 11:36-45; Luke 21:24; Revelation 13:1-10; 17:11-14).
Protocol 3:13-21 states, "We have demonstrated that progress will bring all the GOYIM to the sovereignty of reason. Our despotism will be precisely that; for it will know how, by wise severities, to pacificate all unrest, to cauterize liberalism out of all institutions.
When the populace has seen that all sorts of concessions and indulgences are yielded it, in the same name of freedom it has imagined itself to be sovereign lord and has stormed its way to power, but, naturally like every other blind man, it has come upon a host of stumbling blocks. It has rushed to find a guide, it has never had the sense to return to the former state and it has laid down its plenipotentiary powers at our feet. Remember the French Revolution, to which it was we who gave the name of "Great": the secrets of its preparations are well known to us for it was wholly the work of our hands.
Ever since that time we have been leading the peoples from one disenchantment to another, so that in the end they should turn also from us in favor of that King-Despot of the blood of Zion, whom we are preparing for the world.
At the present day we are, as an international force, invincible, because if attacked by some we are supported by other States. It is the bottomless rascality of the GOYIM peoples, who crawl on their bellies to force, but are merciless towards weakness, unsparing to faults and indulgent to crimes, unwilling to bear the contradictions of a free social system but patient unto martyrdom under the violence of a bold despotismit is those qualities which are aiding us to independence. From the premier-dictators of the present day, the GOYIM peoples suffer patiently and bear such abuses as for the least of them they would have beheaded twenty kings.
What is the explanation of this phenomenon, this curious inconsequence of the masses of the peoples in their attitude towards what would appear to be events of the same order?
It is explained by the fact that these dictators whisper to the peoples through their agents that through these abuses they are inflicting injury on the States with the highest purposeto secure the welfare of the peoples, the international brotherhood of them all, their solidarity and equality of rights. Naturally they do not tell the peoples that this unification must be accomplished only under our sovereign rule.
And thus the people condemn the upright and acquit the guilty, persuaded ever more and more that it can do whatsoever it wishes. Thanks to this state of things, the people are destroying every kind of stability and creating disorders at every step.
The word "freedom" brings out the communities of men to fight against every kind of force, against every kind of authority even against God and the laws of nature. For this reason we, when we come into our kingdom, shall have to erase this word from the lexicon of life as implying a principle of brute force which turns mobs into bloodthirsty beasts.
These beasts, it is true, fall asleep again every time when they have drunk their fill of blood and at such time can easily be riveted into their chains. But if they be not given blood they will not sleep and continue to struggle".
This is portion of the protocol for world hegemony; this plan has been coming to pass with precision since the nineteenth century. The Old and New Testaments inform us Satan will soon move his earthly headquarters from Rome to Jerusalem; this is also the plan announced by his children who would rule the world. According to Scripture, Jerusalem will be ruled by a non-Semitic, anti-Semitic people unto the consummation. Jesus prophesied that in our day, after the restoration of the state of Israel, Jerusalem would be "spiritually as Sodom and Egypt," because it is a city that revels in the abominations for which God destroyed Sodom and her people; a city in bondage to the sin of a Talmudic religion that makes the Word of God of none effect (Daniel 9:27; Matthew 15:1-9; Revelation 11:1-2, 8).
Vatican City is a Satanic impersonation of Jerusalem in that it invites believers to make pilgrimage for worship, yet after Calvary there are no more Jerusalems because when Israel sacrificed her Messiah, the real Lamb of God who was Kinsman Redeemer for all of Adam's race took away the sins of all who believe on His Name wherever they live. God then ceased dealing with Israel as a nation and turned to individual Gentiles throughout the world in fulfillment of His promise to Abraham (Genesis 12:3; 17:5; Romans 10-11).
The Roman Catholic counterfeit church is a creature of apostate Jews and the Roman State; hence the oxymoron "Judaeo-Christian" is appropriate to her religion (Revelation 2:9, 13). Never Christian at any time she is a tool of Lucifer designed to usurp and destroy Christ's "little flock," but the elect of God cannot be deceived on the revealed Word of God. The Roman church, which claims dominion over heaven, earth and the mythical Purgatory, has for centuries plotted to rule earth from Jerusalem. It is understood that unbeknownst to him, Mohammed was chosen and groomed by Rome to become an Arab leader who would unite Ishmael's non-Catholic Arabs and ultimately capture Jerusalem for the Great Whore.
After Mohammed's death the nomadic tribes began joining forces in the name of Allah, and the Vatican helped finance their armies on condition they conquer Jerusalem for the Pope. But Omar took Jerusalem in AD638 and built the Dome of the Rock on the temple site leveled by God's servant, General Titus. Islam became powerful and within a hundred years had built an empire that stretched from Northern Spain to India, and determined to conquer not only Africa, but Europe as well. Islam's rapid spread engulfed the Persian Sassanid Empire, much of the Byzantine Empire, and threatened Western Europe until Charles Martel's victory at the Battle of Tours in 732. From 1096 to 1254 the Roman Catholic church fought crusades against Islam for sovereignty over Jerusalem.
Three Babylonian counterfeit religions require pilgrimage to a "holy" city. Judaism, a pagan Babylonian impersonation of Yahweh Torah, called Pharisaism in the days of Messiah; Roman Catholicism, a Jewish 'front' impersonating the Temple worship and pagan Babylonian impersonation of Christianity organized at the first Nicaea Council of AD325; and Islam, which is a Roman Catholic 'front' incorporating the same pagan Babylonian symbols based on the same false trinity of gods. Like Rome, Islam is heavily infiltrated by Jews as Kamal Ataturk and the Jewish family of Saud (Wahhabism).
The UN General Assembly Resolution 181 of 1947, a resolution which Israel accepted, called for Jerusalem to be considered a 'corpus separatum' under the Trusteeship Council of the UN. And in 1993, Shimon Peres promised to hand over the holy sites of Jerusalem to the Pope with the unwritten understanding that the Vatican would receive political authority over the Old City of Jerusalem by the end of the millennium. Yassar Arafat accepted the agreement in behalf of the Palestinians. Essentially Jerusalem is to become an international city overseen by the Holy See, but we have to wait until the close of the Gentile dispensation when earthquakes sink Los Angeles, split the Mount of Olives, demolish the Dome of the Rock, and precipitate the "hot" stage of the present World War III. (See Newsletter 059).
Jerusalem, which will be destroyed with the world, means absolutely nothing to Christians beyond a historical relic. The Roman Catholic church, political Zionists and Islam are the only groups scrambling for Jerusalem, and for unholy purposes. God does not dwell in a temple made with hands but in the Temple of Christ's Body, the elect Church, His many-membered Bride of all Ages. We are "the holy city, new Jerusalem, who will come down from God out of heaven, prepared as a Bride adorned for her Husband" after the consummation of life on earth. Read what Brother Branham taught in The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit, and what Jesus taught in Revelation 21 and 22.
It is time for every Christian to realize "we are the chosen race, the royal priesthood, the holy nation, God's purchased possession; that we should show forth the praises of He who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous Light" (I Peter 2:9). Why would anyone bearing the Name and revelation of Christ defer to apostate non-Semitic anti-Semitic self-styled Jews who despise the Savior of Adam's race? Is the promise of God's Word void? Leave that wicked Jerusalem to the Jews and get your Gentile house in order, before God turns His face toward Israel.
What does the land of Israel mean to Christians? Israel's one (1) significance for Christians is that it is God's timepiece, beyond that Israel means nothing whatsoever! Since He deals with Israel as a nation His Covenant is of no effect outside the Promised Land. He restricted His dealings in the redemption of Israel and Jerusalem to precisely 490 years of 360 days commencing from Nisan 14, 445BC, the day on which Artaxerxes commanded Nehemiah to restore and rebuild the city of Jerusalem (Daniel 9:25; Nehemiah 2:1-8). He divided these years into four periods. He allowed 49 years in which to restore the wall and public works. In Jerusalem on the day and hour 434 years later, Israel murdered her Messiah. Consequently, God did not deal with the nation in redemption but in judgment for almost 2,000 years but turned to us Gentiles to call out a Bride for His Messiah, thus fulfilling His promise to Abraham, whose name means "Father of the Gentiles." In this period Rome destroyed the Temple, dispersed the Israelites of Judea, and at the close of the Gentile dispensation will covenant with her Jewish masters for the outstanding 7 years, breaking her agreement midway through the week of years.
Matthew 24:3, "As Jesus sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came asked Him three questions: When shall the Temple be thrown down? What shall be the sign of your 'parousia' coming, and what will be the sign of the end of the ages?"
Jesus explained how the Temple will be destroyed subsequent to the sighting of the regimental standards of Rome's armies on the Mount of Olives (Matthew 24:15-21). The sign of Christ's 'parousia' Coming to Israel will be the appearance of the Angel of the Lord veiled by clouds of glory at the manifestation of the Seventh Trump (Matthew 24:30-31) as it appeared to we Gentiles over Arizona on February 28, 1963. However it is their third question that most interests us: the sign of the end of the ages and the imminent close of the Gentile dispensation, heralding the day of the Lord and the commencement of Daniel's Seventieth Week.
Matthew 24:32-34, "Now learn a parable of the fig tree (Israel); When its branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, (or is restored to statehood) you know that summer is nigh (when the firstfruits of God's planting will be harvested or gathered Home): likewise, when you see all these things, know that the end of man's day is near, even at the doors. Assuredly, the generation that witnesses the restoration of Israel in 1948 will not expire until all these things be fulfilled".
The question concerning the revival of the "fig tree" fixes this prophecy in the chronicle of history against which we can estimate the time of the Seventh Trump and the first resurrection based on the fact that the youngest of those who were at the age of accountability when Israel was restored in unbelief will be seventy-two in 2008. Jesus Messiah has promised many of these will live into the time of "Jacob's trouble," but because of their advanced age, having lived their three-score years and ten, He must call His end-time Bride Home very soon, and fulfill the last seven years of Daniel's Seventy Weeks. Thus Israel has fulfilled its one relevance to Christians, that of God's timepiece.
Beyond the ongoing manifestations of prophecy indicating the imminence of day of the Lord, Israel has little relevance to Christians. We might anticipate public statements on the planned transfer of Jerusalem to Roman authority; news of two Hebrew ministers gathering a following in Israel; progress in the planned destruction of the US economy within and a freefalling dollar without; tectonic activity in Colombia, the USA and in the Pacific; a uniting of the world's religions with the rise to power of the Roman Catholic church and the World Council of Churches in the USA; a unionization within the circle of this Message to further 'squeeze' out or ostracize Christ's "little flock" standing in the faith of Jesus Christ; an extension of 'thought control' to the Internet (by privatization), from education, media, religion and entertainment, and finally, Brother Branham's prophecy: "this great nation is going to strike a war that's going to blow it to bits . . . I saw the United States as one smoldering, burnt-over place. It will be near the end" (The Laodicean Church Age, p. 501:43; Hybrid Religion, 6:4).
Brother Branham said, "Don't take any foolishness. Don't imagine anything. Stay right there until this inside of the inside is anchored to the Word, that you're right in Christ. . . 'Cause we're in the most deceiving age that we ever lived in. It would deceive the very elected if it was possible, because they have anointing. They can do anything like the rest of them. Clean your lives up; pay your debts; owe no man. . ." (And Knoweth it Not, p. 36:279-280).
The state of Israel was restored by Banksters desirous of gaining control of Jerusalem to impersonate prophecy in order to garner support for world hegemony from a superstitious, religious mob. They worked behind the Zionist 'front' of Marxist, fascist non-Semitic self-styled Jews, blackmailing Britain with the Balfour Declaration as they had blackmailed President Wilson. Their motto is, "By Way of Deception Thou shalt make War," for in the minds of Cabalistic Jews, evil is good, and they celebrate the fact that they formed an apartheid "Jewish State" in Palestine by spilling oceans of blood. This racist State continually troubles the world and consumes vast resources that could otherwise be put to productive purposes. Ex-Prime Minister Menachem Begin, terrorist, murderer and war criminal, long ago confessed Israel's cowardly treachery and deceit of her neighbours in the Six-Day War. Despite the lies of propagandists, the restoration of Israel was not God's handiwork nor was it accomplished by or for the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, but by their enemy (Genesis 27:39-41; Malachi 1:1-5), which explains why the Hebrew and other Semitic inhabitants have either been killed, exist under apartheid conditions, or in exile. Israel will be ruled by a non-Semitic, anti-Semitic people until the consummation (Daniel 9:27; Luke 21:24; Revelation 11:1-2, 8). However, "All things work together for good to those who love God, who are the called according to His purpose. For those He foreknew He did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He did predestinate He also called: and whom He called, He also justified: and whom He justified, He has also glorified" (Romans 8:28-30). The enmity, deceit and cold-blooded murder involved in stealing the land of Israel will rest upon the shoulders of the Edomites while the blessings will accrue to the elect Sons of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who return to the Land for redemption after the Seventh Trump.

- Mishpuka: criminal elements, from thieves, pimps in the white slave trade, contract killers and manufacturers of illicit drugs, to Prime Ministers and international fraudsters using the state as their "city of refuge" from justice. (As Hitler predicted in Mein Kampf, written in 1924).
- Jews as a group, deceived for 2,500 years by corrupt and ignorant leaders, their own slothfulness in pursuit of truth, and the myopic hyperethnocentric conceit of a perceived racial superiority which has neither Scriptural nor biological basis, but is generally the antithesis of truth.
- Religious fanatics of all persuasions among Jews, Yahwists, Christians, and Muslims.
- Well-meaning "do-gooders," NGOs, and tourists.
- Hebrews and Palestinians, whose land and homes were stolen by Britain and given to the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews.
- German, US and other nominally Christian taxpayers who bankroll the country.
- The 'hidden hand' of Illuminist Banksters.
- The Judaeo-Roman Catholic church.
- Deceived people in the circle of this Message who have failed to obey Brother Branham's instruction: "Don't take me for what I say, but for what I mean," and neglect to take His Message back to Scripture from Genesis to Revelation. "Without the Spirit" these will quote the "letter" verbatim right into the tribulation.
- A number of genuine blood Israelites, not Jews, who will return to Israel mainly from what were the ancient empires of Parthia and Assyria in hopes of redemption after the end of the Gentile dispensation, among them will be 144,000 elect children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Jeremiah 25:8-11, "Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Because you have not heard My Words, I will send and take all the families of the north, saith the Lord, and Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetual desolations. Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle. And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years".
Brother Branham said, "I prophesy that this whole nation shall become desolate. God shall punish this nation for her sins. If God would not let Israel, His elected, Abraham's seed, who He made the covenant and promise with, if He would not let them get by with wrong doing, though they were religious to the core . . . but because of the immorals and things among them, and God made them reap what they sowed, so shall we get it . . . (In other words, "Jeremiah, I've give you this message. Don't set still. Don't stay in one place, but prophesy to all the nations." Do you follow it? "Prophesy to all the nations. Show My signs and wonders, and let them know that I'm coming to do this") . . . Do you see the history repeating itself?" (Gabriel's Instructions to Daniel, p. 19:83-85). In Revelation 18:21-24 the same words of condemnation are prophesied over the United States of America.
This prophecy will introduce Daniel's Seventieth Week, where God turns back to Israel, not Jews, to fulfill the last seven years of "the times of the Gentiles":
Jeremiah 3:11, 18, "Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, backsliding Israel, saith the Lord; and I will not cause My anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, and I will not keep anger forever. . . In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers" (The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit, p. 74:128; and see Newsletter 479; also Isaiah 11:11-12; 27:13).
The Gospel will return to Israel at that time in a revival that will draw a hundred and forty-four thousand into the Kingdom of God. The Angel of the Lord will come from the east with the Seal of the living God. He has sent a persecution here and a persecution there, and will yet drive Israel back into the Promised Land for redemption. So you see, Jerusalem and Israel have no significance to us Christians, but they are central to Israel's redemption. There two Hebrew prophets will reveal Christ to Israel under the anointing and with the authority which endued Moses and Elijah, and Brother Branham said, Jews remaining in the United States will be unable to escape (C.O.D. p. 97:235). "We Christians, according to God's promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness" (II Peter 3:13). We are Spiritual Israel, the New Jerusalem who will rule with Jesus Messiah throughout eternity. nl493.htm
