How Goldman gambled on Starvation
July 2, 2010 By now, you probably think your opinion of Goldman Sachs and its swarm of Wall Street allies has rock-bottomed at raw loathing. You're wrong. There's more. It turns out that the most destructive of all their recent acts has barely been discussed at all. Here's the rest. This is the story of how some of the richest people in the worldGoldman, Deutsche Bank, the traders at Merrill Lynch, and morehave caused the starvation of some of the poorest people in the world.
It starts with an apparent mystery. At the end of 2006, food prices across the world started to rise, suddenly and stratospherically. Within a year, the price of wheat had shot up by 80 per cent, maize by 90 per cent, rice by 320 per cent. In a global jolt of hunger, 200 million peoplemostly childrencouldn't afford to get food any more, and sank into malnutrition or starvation. There were riots in more than 30 countries, and at least one government was violently overthrown. Then, in spring 2008, prices just as mysteriously fell back to their previous level. Jean Ziegler, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, calls it "a silent mass murder," entirely due to "man-made actions". . .

Comment: Like derivatives, weather modification by scalar technology, ethanol biofuel, and the likely aromatic poisoning of crops resulting from the uncontrolled gusher in the Gulf, are agents of death by famine foretold in Revelation 6:8.
The Empire of "The City"
"The City" is an international financial oligarchy and is perhaps the most arbitrary and absolute form of government in the world. This international financial oligarchy uses the allegoric "Crown" as its symbol of power and has its headquarters in the ancient City of London, an area of 677 acres; which strangely in all the vast expanse of the 443,455 acres of Metropolitan London alone is not under the jurisdiction of the Metropolitan Police, but has its own private force of about 2,000 men, while its night population is under 9,000.
This tiny area of a little over one square mile has in it the giant Bank of England, a privately owned institution; which as is further elaborated hereinafter is not subject to regulation by the British Parliament, and is in effect a sovereign world power. Within the City are located also the Stock Exchange and many institutions of world-wide scope. The City carries on its business of local government with a fanciful display of pompous medieval ceremony and with its officers attired in grotesque ancient costumes. Its voting power is vested in secret guilds with names of long extinct crafts such as the Mercers, Grocers, Fishmongers, Skinners, Vintners, etc. All this trivial pomp and absurdity and horse-play seems to serve very well to blind the eyes of the public to the big things going on behind the scenes; for the late Vincent Cartwright Vickers, once Deputy-Lieutenant of this City, a director of the great British armament firm of Vickers Ltd., and a director of the Bank of England from 1910 to 1919, in his "Economic Tribulation" published 1940, lays the wars of the world on the door-step of the City.
That the British people and the British Parliament have little to say in the foreign affairs of the British Empire, and that the people of the British Empire must fight when International Finance and the City blow the trumpet, appears from the paean of praise of America by Andrew Carnegie, "Triumphant Democracy," published in 1886 by that American super-industrialist and British newspaper publisher, in the following words: "My American readers may not be aware of the fact that, while in Britain an act of Parliament is necessary before works for a supply of water or a mile of railway can be constructed, six or seven men can plunge the nation into war, or, what is perhaps equally disastrous, commit it to entangling alliances without consulting Parliament at all. This is the most pernicious, palpable effect flowing from the monarchial theory, for these men do this in 'the king's Name,' who is in theory still a real monarch, although in reality only a convenient puppet, to be used by the cabinet at pleasure to suit their own needs" Full story: empire.htm
Comment: Before the fourth of July weekend, there was unreported manoeuvre in the US Senate designed to cover the City's 'false flag' and protect BP and the federal government from liability in the Gulf disaster. You have to see this with your my own eyes brasschecktv. Meanwhile soldiers from the City's colony of (once) Great Britain, take a leaf from the IDF Manual on cowardice, and in the absence of Palestinian children, beat up Iraqi boys confirming Sir Henry Kissinger's assessment of military men as "dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy." The National Guard is dumb enough to place New Your City under de facto martial law. Latvian and Polish troops participated in an exercise by the Illinois National Guards.
Why the State Hates Cholesterol
Why is the war on cholesterol of such benefit to government, despite being bankrupt as a scientific theory? The State relies on a submissive populationone in which individuals do not think for themselves, and preferably do not think at all.
It is no surprise then that a molecule which plays such a central role in the brain would become the primary target of government. The brain makes up only 2% of the body's weight, yet it consists of a full 25% of the body's cholesterol! The importance of cholesterol to mental function is enormous. Cholesterol was discovered in 2001 to be the limiting factor in the formation of synapses, which are the connections between neurons, or nerve cells. A more recent study found that extracting some of the cholesterol from the cell membrane of a neuron causes a loss of functioning of signaling proteins that tell the neurons what direction to grow in, so they can make the proper type of connections. And, Dr. Iwo J. Bohr has hypothesized that a contributing factor to Alzheimer's disease is a deficiency of cholesterol in the membranes of brain cells. . .
"Fluoride in drinking water is a topic to raise the hackles of those doubting its dental benefits and resenting its addition to the public water supply. Meanwhile the water additive plot thickens as doctors in England debate whether drinking water might be used to administer cholesterol-lowering drugs to the public in an effort to reduce incidents of cardiovascular disease, the biggest cause of death in the United Kingdom."
If your fluoridated and chlorinated municipal water supply wasn't toxic enough, you may just be a victim of theft in the coming future: the unwilling robbery of cholesterol from your cells, and an extra hit in the wallet to finance the addition of expensive drugs to your water. . .

Comment: Then there is carcinogenic unleaded petrol: lead from leaded petrol is, after combustion, relatively harmless. Blood tests show lead levels to have gradually decreased since the '30's despite increasing use of leaded fuel, following decreased use of pewter, lead solder in food cans and replacement of lead water pipes. But dimethylbenzene, mesitylene, toluene, xylene and benzene in unleaded petrol are all declared carcinogens and far more dangerous. Catalytic converters do not work until they read 400 degrees, and cars fitted with anti-pollution gear are clean for about a year or 50,000Km. The British National Society for Clean Air no longer supports unleaded petrol. More deadly that this genocidal activity of 'the City' is organized religion.
US Government Panel now pushing "Vaccinations for All!" No Exceptions. . .
June 26, 2010 An advisory panel to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) . . . The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, voted 11-0 with one abstention to recommend yearly flu vaccination for everyone except for children under the age of six months, whose immune systems have not yet developed enough for vaccination to be safe, and people with egg allergies or other health conditions that are known to make flu vaccines hazardous. If accepted by the CDC, this recommendation will then be publicized to doctors and other health workers. . .

Comment: Protocol 10:18-19 "It is indispensable to trouble in all countries the people's relations with their governments so as to utterly exhaust humanity with dissension, hatred, struggle, envy and even by the use of torture, by starvation, by the inoculation of diseases, by want, so that the "Goyim" see no other issue than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty in money and in all else".
The Technological Revolution and the Future of Freedom - Part I
the Global Political Awakening and the New World Order
June 24, 2010 There is a new and unique development in human history that is taking place around the world; it is unprecedented in reach and volume, and it is also the greatest threat to all global power structures: the 'global political awakening.' The term was coined by Zbigniew Brzezinski, and refers to the fact that:
America needs to face squarely a centrally important new global reality: that the world's population is experiencing a political awakening unprecedented in scope and intensity, with the result that the politics of populism are transforming the politics of power. The need to respond to that massive phenomenon poses to the uniquely sovereign America an historic dilemma: What should be the central definition of America's global role?
Brzezinski explains that formulating a foreign policy based off of one single eventthe September 11th terror attackshas both legitimized illegal measures (torture, suspension of habeas corpus, etc) and has launched and pacified citizens to accepting the 'global war on terror,' a war without end. The rhetoric and emotions central to this global foreign policy created a wave of patriotism and feelings of redemption and revenge. Thus, Brzezinski explains:
There was no need to be more precise as to who the terrorists actually were, where they came from, or what historical motives, religious passions or political grievances had focused their hatred on America. Terrorism thus replaced Soviet nuclear weapons as the principal threat, and terrorists (potentially omnipresent and generally identified as Muslims) replaced communists as the ubiquitous menace.
Brzezinski explains that this foreign policy, which has inflamed anti-Americanism around the world, specifically in the Muslim world, which was the principle target population of 'terrorist' rhetoric, has in fact further inflamed the 'global political awakening'. Brzezinski writes that:
[T]he central challenge of our time is posed not by global terrorism, but rather by the intensifying turbulence caused by the phenomenon of global political awakening. That awakening is socially massive and politically radicalizing.
This 'global political awakening', Brzezinski writes, while unique in its global scope today, originates in the ideas and actions of the French Revolution, which was central in 'transforming modern politics through the emergence of a socially powerful national consciousness.'

Comment: "When the populace has seen that all sorts of concessions and indulgences are yielded it in the 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 (Protocol 3:14. So you see, the United States, Britain, Russia, and all other colonies of 'the City' are led by their enemy (Genesis 3:15).
The spirit of Laodicea is defined in Woodrow Wilson's policy of a right to 'national self determination,' and in Machiavellian Edward Bernays, Zbigniew Brzezinski, the RIIA, CFR, Bilderberg, Trilateral Commission and their US puppet through the IMF, NATO, UN, WTO and blooded military which together have manipulated human society in the creation of Lucifer's Fabian, Christ-rejecting totalitarian one world government of carnal reasoning.
The author explains how the Rothschild-controlled IMF is transforming all nations into slaves and the middle classes into serfs of credit created out of this air by employing Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) backed by the promises of its members denominated in bankrupt fiat currencies.

Green Energy 'Mafia' shows Hand
June 24, 2010 The author of a damning study about the failure of Spain's "green jobs" program received a 'threatening package' from solar energy company Thermotechnic. Christopher Horner a Senior Fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute wrote:
'Green' Energy Company Threatens Economics Professor . . . with Package of Dismantled Bomb Parts
'Spain's Dr. Gabriel Calzadathe author of a damning study concluding that Spain's "green jobs" energy program has been a catastrophic economic failurewas mailed a dismantled bomb on Tuesday by solar energy company Thermotechnic. . .
Dr. Calzada added: [The terrorism expert] told me that this was a warning. [There are some reports that the underlying issue was a courier error, compounded by the less tangible threats and attacks Calzada has suffered]:
The bomb threat is just the latest intimidation Dr. Calzada has faced since releasing his report and following up with articles in Expansion (a Spanish paper similar to the Financial Times). A minister from Spain's Socialist government called the rector of King Juan Carlos UniversityDr. Calzada's employerseeking Calzada's ouster. Calzada was not fired, but he was stripped of half of his classes at the university. The school then dropped its accreditation of a summer university program with which Calzada's think tankInstituto Juan de Marianawas associated.
Additionally, the head of Spain's renewable energy association and the head of its communist trade union wrote opinion pieces in top Spanish newspapers accusing Calzada of being 'unpatriotic'they did not charge him with being incorrect, but of undermining Spain by daring to write the report.
Their reasoning? If the skepticism that Calzada's revelations prompted were to prevail in the US, Spanish industry would face collapse should US subsidies and mandates dry up.
As I have previously reported . . . Spain's 'green jobs' program was repeatedly referenced by President Obama as a model for what he would like to implement in the United States. Following the release of Calzada's report, Spain's Socialist government has since acknowledged the debacleboth privately and publicly. This month, Spain's government instituted massive reductions in subsidies to 'renewable' energy sources.
Dr. Calzada is a friend of mine, kindly writing a blurb for the jacket of my latest book: 'Power Grab: How Obama's Green Policies Will Steal Your Freedom and Bankrupt America'. My book details the Spanish 'green jobs' disaster uncovered by Dr. Calzada, plus similar 'green' economic calamities occurring in Germany and Denmarkalso programs Obama has praisedas well as in Italy and elsewhere.
As I detail in 'Power Grab,' they felt Spain would be in a dire position without the US playing the role of sucker. With today's revelation, now we know just how far the 'green energy' lobby will go to keep the money flowing.'

Comment: Further reading: 'The Climate Caper: Facts and Fallacies of Global Warming' by Garth W. Paltridge, $25.00 plus postage. Governments are becoming captive to scientific and technological elites who are achieving their ends by manipulating fear of climate change into the greatest example of a religion of the politically correct.
Following our news on the climate change and ETS SCAM in last week, the Climate Change Institute (so-called) wrote pushing their propaganda on this old HOAX that goes back to the days of H.G. Wells.
The First Seal Part II
By Boyd Reneau
The difference between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan is the difference between Light and Darkness. God's creative Word has Life in itself and brought forth a universe in beauty and perfection. Satan, who is not a creator, perverted God's Word and transmogrified His beautiful creation into an Eden of sin, disgrace, and mortality. The Kingdom of God is based on Faith or revelation in His Word, which can only be received by those born again. All must enter the one Door called "JESUS," come to Him for Light and acknowledge Him as LORD. This Kingdom comes not with observation for it is that unseen dimension of faith that grows within your soul and displayed in a life lived by a clear understanding of the Word for your day. This is the evidence of heavenly citizenship.
Paul said, "He that built all things is God . . . with Jesus Christ the Chief Corner stone, we the elect stones are built up into a holy Temple in the Lord" (Hebrews 3:4; Ephesians 2:20-22). The kingdom of Satan on the other hand is typified early in Scripture by Cain who rejected revelation, killed his brother and went out of the presence of God to build a city of his own. Unlike the tents of Seth, Cain's city was outwardly ostentatious, founded on the evil works of its ultimate ruler who comes to steal, kill and destroy. Masses of this world's citizens pant after ten minutes in the illusion of Satan's temporal kingdom built upon lust, violence, misery and sinful passions. But since it is not established on the Word of God it cannot endure and bears the seed of its own destruction with all of his subjects in the Lake of Fire.
When Satan offered Jesus the kingdoms of this world, our Lord was not tempted, knowing He was heir to all things and in the proper time reign as King of kings over a glorious domain where neither sin, death nor any offense can enter. That Kingdom was seen in visions symbolizing its various stages of development. Daniel saw it as a Stone cut without hand that grew into a mountain that filled the whole earth. This Kingdom cannot be shaken and will not pass away. Since the fall all of Adam's race has awaited the momentous occasion when our Kinsman Redeemer would regain the Original Title Deed of all that Adam forfeited and restore His creation to glorious perfection.
Jesus Messiah satisfied God's requirements when He paid redemption's price at Calvary; and before ascending to heaven to begin His ministry as mediator in the office of Son of God He spent forty days on the earth. His resurrection from the dead ought to have inflamed faith and a sacred joy in the hearts of those early believers. Yet before the Holy Fire and mighty rushing wind swept them into that Pentecostal experience, they struggled with issues that had to be purged from their minds. Reaching the sepulchre with spices to anoint the Lord's body, the women saw two men in shining garments who asked, "Why seek ye the living among the dead?' He is not here but is risen: remember how He spoke when He was yet in Galilee, saying, the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified and rise again the third day? And they remembered His Words" (Luke 24:1-8). With gladness and astonishment the women hastened from the tomb to bring these glad tidings to the disciples.
However His disciples were in a somber mood and believed not the joyous tidings of His resurrection but regarded the words of the women as "idle tales" (Luke 24:11), a condition that prevailed. Scripture records Peter saying, "I'll go back to fishing," so there was considerable misunderstanding as to what was really going on. Later that evening Cleophas and another brother were heading home to Emmaus, and as they communed and reasoned among themselves Jesus HIMSELF drew near and walked with them, but their eyes were holden and they could not recognize Him. Jesus applied the 'Word Test,' asking why they were so disheartened. Luke 24:17-24 tells us how the women witnessed that the Lord's body was no longer in the tomb "and beside all this, today is the third day since these things were done." The one thing that should have dispelled all doubt and raised in them an earnest expectation of meeting their risen Lord, troubled and caused them grief.
Then without identifying Himself, Jesus upbraided their unbelief, calling them "fools and slow of heart to believe all the prophets have spoken; affirming that Christ ought to have suffered all the things they acknowledged, and then enter into His glory. And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself" (Luke 24:25-27). That evening when He was revealed in the breaking of bread and their eyes were opened and they knew Him. May God bless the Bread of Life and as it is broken yet again, and our eyes are opened to see the Jesus.
Lest we point the finger at the skepticism of some early followers of this Message, a similar unscriptural belief prevails in certain quarters today. In the greatest and most triumphant time in the life of the elect Church, a homogenous lukewarm Laodicean spirit clings like the oily tar and toxic sludge from the Gulf of Mexico to many who claim to be Bride. However, neither hopeful optimism nor religious psychology can put one in the rapture. Reciting the Scriptures and quoting the prophet is fine, but if all it takes to attain the body change and translate the Body of Christ to the Wedding Supper and to the millennium was to recite as wonderful a Scripture as John 3:16; God would have had no need to send Paul, the reformers and an end time prophet "to turn them from darkness to Light" in each of the Seven Church Ages.
Jesus' own resurrection was realized by a definitive understanding of the Scriptures pertaining to Him. And He exercised an unprecedented measure of faith that ensured His soul did not remain in Sheol or His body see corruption. Similarly, no believer in this hour will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the Air because they really hope God will have pity and just take them up, or because they believe the purpose of 'The Message' is to announce that God sent a prophet at the end time. Our change and journey to the sixth dimension will take place in the midst of the greatest troubles on earth. Like Jesus, we'll have to possess perfect understanding of that Word, and know what to do with it. We'll share the testimony of Enoch that "we please God," and nothing will be able to hold us backnot gravity, and certainly not death.
There are many indications in the news of the lateness of the hour and the darkness in men's heart. But when not even "The Second Coming of Christ as a thief in the night" can fire sufficient excitement and enthusiasm to pierce the spirit of Laodicea over some in the circle of this Message who are supposed to believe the Bible, "Ichabod" is written all over them and the glory has departed. Recently I spoke with a denominational minister concerning the "Coming" of the Lord, who said he hoped this would not be too soon as it would spoil his plans of starting a new church, while a man who claims to follow this Message said that in order to avoid the horrors of the coming shaking, he hopes to die before the earthquake sinks Los Angeles. As in the parable of the sower in Matthew 13, our focus will not be on seed that fell by the wayside, neither that which fell on stony ground, nor those that were choked by the deceitfulness of riches and the cares of this life. Our focus will be on seed that fell on the good ground of a true and honest heart, which, having heard the Word of God and truly understood the mysteries Jesus said were given for them to know, brought forth fruit to perfection.
Years ago when I heard Brother Branham say Jesus spoke of the "Seals of Revelations" in the Gospels, it shook me because up to that time I had never imagined that those great hidden mysteries were in the Gospels. Like those first disciples my eyes were "holden" and I had not recognized the blessed Christ of glory, though Jesus Himself was there fully revealed. But thank God according to His Grace and the good pleasure of His will He has revealed Jesus through the simplicity of His Word.
In his sermon on the First Seal, Brother Branham emphasized several points essential to attaining a clear understanding of the revelation hidden under the symbols John saw. I would like to look into some of those things for our edification, with reference to that particular sermon.
One of the first thoughts he expresses has to do with Godhead and the person of God. Brother Branham said, "Now, as we study this chapter we are referring different places even to Old and New Testament alike, because the entire Book is "The Revelation of Jesus Christ." That's altogether the revelation of the Lord Jesus: "The Revelation of Jesus Christ." It's God revealing Himself in the Book, revealing Himself through Christ in the Book. And Christ is the revelation of God. He come to reveal God, because He and God were the same. "God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself".
In other wise, you'd never knowed just what God was until He revealed Himself through Christ; then you can see. I used to think years ago that maybe God was angry with me, but Christ loved me. Come to find out, it's the same Person. See? And Christ is the very heart of God" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 118:7 119:3).
Another subject of absolute importance is the rapture. Too many have not cleansed their souls of denominational errors and still see the rapture like the Adventist and other Evangelical and Pentecostal groups. They believe Gabriel will make a grand appearance in the skies one of these days, sound his trumpet to announce to the world the second Coming of Jesus, and the rapture will suddenly take place with Christians popping out of homes and cars or work places, floating up to meet the Lord like helium balloons, or something on that order. The Prophet warned that you'll end up in the tribulation wondering, "Should not the rapture have happened first?" Let's hear what he said.
"Now, those first three books is the first Seven Church Ages, and then we find out in the fourth chapter of Revelations John is caught up. See? We see the churches . . . There's not too much said about the Church Ages. There's where I think that people are going to be so surprised. They're applying the Church way over into the tribulation to those things that's a-happened. And as I said Sunday (yesterday), "The first thing you know those tribulations will break in, and you'll wonder why was not the first Coming was the rapture. And it'll be as it has been; it's passed and you didn't know it" (ibid. p. 119:4).
The rapture has been confused with the translation of saints in some of his sermons because the letter of the prophet's word was taken without the Spirit. However, in his December 4, 1965 sermon entitled "The Rapture," Brother Branham clearly states that his understanding on the rapture was different from what other preachers believed and that the rapture is a REVELATION. It is the supreme revelation of the fullness of the Word that catches our souls up in the Spirit into the Lord's Day as typed by John in Revelation 4:1, for in Revelation 22 he is still on the Isle of Patmos. That three-fold process Paul mentions in I Thessalonians 4:16 encompasses the midnight cry of Matthew 25:6 and the Voice of the Archangel in intimate communion with the Bride, confirming the Message from Genesis to Revelation, and very soon the Trump of God that will break the half-hour silence in heaven and shake heaven and earth, calling the first resurrectionall three constitute the rapture.
One of the greatest miracles of all time, the rapture has been in process for the last 47 years. It is not a public show like the Prophet's miraculous ministry in Laodicea, but rest assured believers with lame feet and twisted ankles have been strengthened and are walking and leaping and praising God; troubled hearts are healed, ears that were dull of hearing due to denominational wax now hear the Voice of the Bridegroom; those who were blind now see the revelation, while once malnourished souls now drink from the river of water of Life and feed from the storehouse of Spiritual food towering like Joseph's granaries in Egypt. Brother Branham's theme song, "Only Believe," was not simply for the healing of cancers or toothachesmy brother and sister, it is to take us out of here.
Everything the prophet said was predestinated by the Spirit to sweep away man-made interpretations and do-it-yourself theology presuming to figure out the meaning of God's Word. As in the Alpha Age when Jesus proclaimed He would build His Church on spiritual revelation from the Father, revelation by the Holy Spirit is the absolute "must have" in this Omega or Capstone Age of the end-time Bride that follows the sealing of the Church. This is made clear where our prophet said:
"And now, the Lamb is standing now tonight as we enter into this sixth chapter; He's got the Book in His hand and starting to reveal it. And, oh, I would've absolutely today . . . And I hope that people are spiritual. I would've had a horrible mistake on that if it hadn't been about twelve o'clock today when the Holy Spirit came in the room and corrected me on something that I was writing down to say. I was taking it from an old context. I had nothing on it. I don't know what the Second Seal is no more than nothing, but I'd got some old contexts of something that I'd spoke on several years ago and wrote it down, and I'd gathered this context . . . And Dr. Smith, many great outstanding teachers that I'd gathered, and all of them believed that, so I'd wrote it down. And I was fixing to say, "Well, now I'll study it from that standpoint." And there about twelve o'clock in the day the Holy Spirit just swept right down into the room, and the whole thing just opened up to me, and there it was . . . of this First Seal being opened" (ibid. p. 122:2-3).
O bless the Lord! Do you see that? Brother Branham was a covenant prophet of a caliber and calling like none the world has seen since Enoch. His prophetic gift and discernment were mightily attested by all in his phenomenal ministry. Yet he said he would have made a horrible mistake EXCEPT the Holy Spirit came to him and CORRECTED him. That should serve as the ultimate warning for all who would presume to know the mind of God. We must wait upon the Lord to reveal Himself as He places His Voice in those He has ordained to rule and feed His flock. Matthew 16:13-24 well bears out this marvelous story.
"When Jesus came to the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, who do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, some say you are John the Baptist: some, Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets. He said to them, but who do you say that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Jesus answered and said, Blessed are you, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood has not REVEALED this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I say to you, that you are Peter, and upon this ROCK I will build My Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it".
"The Lord gave him the keys of the Kingdom of heaven, the great authority to bind or loose things on earth and it would be honoured in heaven. He charged His disciples that they should tell no man that He was Jesus the Christ and began to show them how He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. . . Then Peter began to remonstrate with Him, saying, Heaven forbid! This will never happen to you, Lord. But Jesus turned, and told Peter, Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me: for you are thinking merely from a human viewpoint, not seeing God's perspective. Then Jesus said to His disciples, if any man would come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me".
We have to deny our own reasoning and intellectual capabilities and receive the kingdom as little children, because our Adversary is always on the attack, trying to displace faith with some kind of humanistic reasoning. The Bible also said, "In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for it seemed good in Your sight".
How can we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? We can't neglect this under any circumstances. God is faithful and able to bring to pass all He has promised. And we have the Scriptural promise that He who has begun a good work in you will carry it through to the end. Amen! And remember, we cannot have double speak or double mindedness where the Word of God is concerned.
"And if they heard the Truth and rejected the Truth, then what's going to be said when the big thing's spread across the canvas when even your own thoughts will be there, what you thought about it. How you going to escape, and it right there on the canvas of the skies; and God's great television and there's your own thoughts rebelling right . . . Your own thoughts will speak against you in that hour.
So if you speak one thing and think another, you better stop that. Get your thoughts on God. Keep them pure, and stay right there with it, and speak the same thing all the time. See? Don't say, "Well, I'll say I'll believe it; but I'll go find out." You believe it. Amen" (ibid. p. 134:2b-3).
Who among us could ever afford not to possess rapturing faith and be clothed in the fine linen of the righteousness of saints at the first resurrection? God's Word is faithful and true. It accomplishes all He has sent it to do. So what will hinder the righteous judgments that have been in store for this wicked and adulterous generation?
"Then all the judgments of these evil doers . . . Now, see, down through the Ages as these Seals has been breaking, until now the last Seal is broken. And now, as they have been watching in on these Seals and just presuming what they were doing, now at the end of the Ages, of the Church Ages, all these evil doers will take place and head up in the tribulation.
All of these evil doers of the Seven Seals has been working mysterious in the church, and we'll find out in a minute, they even work in the name of a church. They call themselves the church. You just see if that isn't right. No wonder I have been so against denomination, not knowing why. See, see?
They end up . . . Now, it starts back here in a mild form, just keeps getting worse and worse, on down until. . . And people go right into it, saying, "Oh, yes, this is just fine." But in the last days these things are made known. And they finally go so bad until they go plumb into the tribulation period' (ibid. p. 128:4-6).
Such is the awful price of tampering with the Word of God. No one can add to or take away from its holy precepts. And that thought is repeated, clear warning is given.
"Don't Jesus speak the same thing when He said the sound come in the seventh watch? That's the last Church Age. See? And said, "Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go out to meet Him."
"And then the sleeping virgin come, rubbed her eyes, and said, "Suppose I ought to have some of that oil too; so maybe we'd better have some."
And the real true Bride standing there said, "We have just got enough for ourself. We just got enough to get in ourself. We can't give you nothing. If you want some, you go pray up.'
And while she was gone, the Bridegroom come (See?), and in went the Bride. And then them remnant there, the ones that were absolutely virtuous, the church was left outside. And He said, "There will be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. . ."
All right. Notice, the rest of the dead, church members, lived not again until one thousand years was passed. The church members, the Christians, the church lived not again until the end of the thousand years, and then they come forth to stand before the Bride (That's right), stand before the King and the Queen. Glory" (ibid. p. 132:2-7).
My brothers and sisters, to miss the Wedding Supper and spend that glorious thousand year honeymoon in the dust awaiting the second resurrection would be a tragedy raised to the 4th power. The sweetness and shear bliss of being in the presence of one saint, filled with the Spirit on this side of Eden could lift your soul to heights of glory that make living daily for Christ a blessing. Can you imagine being caught up into the august Presence of the Lord, His resplendent glory radiating out upon His people, resurrected saints on every hand, in bodies like His own glorious body? This prospect has to be more wonderful, exceeding all we can ask or think. Contemplate that joyous refrain singing the sweet songs of Zion? Jesus pronounced the blessing on "he who has part in the First Resurrection, on such the second death has no power." What's more, everything that's needed to place us in the rapture is right here in the revealed Word.
"And then there's coming forth seven mysterious thunders that's not even written at all. That's right. And I believe that through those Seven Thunders will be revealed in the last days in order to get the Bride together for rapturing faith; because what we got right now, we wouldn't be able to do it. There's something we've got to step farther; we can't have enough faith for Divine healing hardly. We've got to have enough faith to be changed in a moment and be swept up out of this earth, and we'll find that after a while, the Lord willing, find where it's written" (ibid. p. 128:3).
Brother Branham's early ministry was during the Great Depression, and we are now experiencing a worldwide recession that will shortly eclipse the Great Depression of 1929. This certain prospect and many other Scriptural signs are now a reality exactly as prophesied, so we have to redeem every moment. Heed the terse admonition of a man who preached the full counsel of God, telling us all he possibly could to get the Bride in order.
"What am I trying to say? I'm not trying to scare you, worry you. I want you to be on your toes. Be ready, watching, every minute. Quit your nonsense. Just get down to business with God, 'cause it's later than you think.
Did I hear an "amen?" Praise God, for it is later than we think.
Even in the affairs of men, a seal, as in a sealed document, speaks of one marked with or certified authentic that makes it safe and secure and cannot be tampered with. It can only be opened by breaking or tearing the seal, by the person it is addressed to. We have many references to "seals" in the Bible and "sealed" Books or documents:
For example in Isaiah 29:11 we read, "The entire vision will be to you like the words of a sealed book, which when they give it to the one who is learned, saying, Please read this, he will say, I cannot, for it is sealed."
And in Jeremiah 32:14, "Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Take these deeds, this sealed deed of purchase and this open deed, and put them in an earthenware jar, that they may last a long time".
Again in Daniel 12:4: "But as for you, Daniel, shut up the Words and seal up the Book until the end of time; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased".
The use of seals began at a time when writing was not common, but when every person of means possessed a coat-of-arms or other distinctive device. Great significance was attached to the use of seals as a means of distinguishing persons. With the spread of education, a person's signature on an instrument replaced the seal, but in heaven the seal has retained its former dignity, God having placed greatest significance on its opening at the most strategic season, the time of the end.
We have seen in the Bible and in Newsletters 635 and 636, this Book which is the Original Title Deed forfeited by the first Adam, is in the right hand of Him that sat on the Throne. From before the foundation of the world it was most highly guarded and kept safe in the repository of heaven. Perfectly sealed and under greatest secrecy, there was absolutely no possibility of human interpretation. The opening of the Book then was one of the greatest events in heaven.
"And I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne a Book written within and on the backside, sealed with Seven Seals. And I saw a strong Angel proclaiming with a loud voice, who is worthy to open the Book, and to loose the Seals thereof? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the Book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the Book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders said to me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the Book, and to loose the Seven Seals thereof".
Not only did no one know what was contained in its sacred scrolls, no man was worthy even to take the Book or to look thereon. I think of John the Baptist, that great messenger and forerunner of the first Coming, of whom Jesus testified, "Of men born of women, none was greater than John." Yet speaking of Jesus John said, "there is One coming, who is mightier than I, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to loose".
"No man in heaven, in the earth or under the earth, was worthy to even look on the Book." O Lord! No wonder John wept much when the advertisement was first made. We get a picture here of the true sense of this intense sacred drama of redemption that was unfolding in heaven at that time. "But one of the Elders said, Weep not John, behold the Lion of the tribe of Judah has prevailed to open the Book and loose the Seven Seals thereof." Hallelujah! The suspense broke and rapturous worship and praise erupted spontaneously. Then, from out of the midst of the throne ONE came forth to take the Book and loose the Seven Seals. He was the Lamb of God, slain from the foundation of the world. Glory! Glory! Glory!
Revelation 6:1-2: "And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the Seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four living creatures said, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer."
The Seals were opened with a mighty blast of thunder. The Voice that spoke on earth and shook this planet from a cross on mount Calvary insomuch that the rocks rent and the graves were opened has thundered once again, this time from heaven. The rocks will again rent and Earth quake when the shaking of this Voice is complete in this hour, and both heaven and earth as we know them will pass away.
As the legal Owner He holds the Title Deed open in His hand, placing judgment on Judaeo-Roman beast from the sea and the (once) Protestant beast from the Earth, asserting His absolute Sovereignty with a loud Voice.
In response, Seven Thunders utter their voices, echoing God's assent to His royal decree, distinctly revealing the mystery of how He redeemed Adam's righteous sons that constitute His Kingdom; who they are, their rank and station in the Kingdom, and how He will restore Earth to Edenic perfection and splendour. This alone, the revelation of the Voices of the Seven Thunders and the symbols under the Seals was the Message of the seventh angel.
Yet John did not hear the Lamb speak or preach the Word as he did in His earthly ministry; instead he heard one of the living creatures, a mighty throne guard saying, "Come and see" and when he looked, he saw the symbols that represent the mystery of that Seal.
Brother Branham said, "Talk about a jubilee, talk about a time when that Lamb walked forth . . . See, the Book's even sealed in heaven, the mysteries are. Say, "Is my name there?" I don't know; I hope it is. But if it is, it was put on the Book before the foundation of the world. But the first thing that represented that redemption, come the Lamb that had been slain from the foundation of the world. And He took the Book (Glory!) opened the Book, and tore off the Seals, and sent it down to the earth to His seventh angel to reveal it to His people. There you are. Oh, my, what happened? The screams, the shouts, the hallelujahs, hosannas, the glories, the manifestations . . ." (ibid. p. 111:7).
There you are indeed. All those smart preachers and teachers who figured they had a scholastic edge over the prophet and what they considered his theologically unsound preaching and poor grammar, dismissed him as the messenger of God. Well the 'Ha' is on them and those whose names have been blotted from the Book will learn to their utter loss what it is to be cast into outer darkness. The Lamb tore the Seals, opened the Book, and carried it down to earth for His seventh angel to reveal to His people. Let's say Amen and shout hallelujah again. "Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He reveals His secrets to His servants the prophets".
It is so wonderful how God set His program and the ways He would fulfill His Word. It thins down the flock, you see, as only elected predestined seed can see the wisdom of His purpose and give the glory and worship due to His Name. Did not Paul in Acts 13 say, "Behold you despisers, and wonder and perish; behold I work a work in your day, a work you shall in no wise believe though a MAN declare it to you?"
Here is something very precious especially for younger believers and subscribers to this Newsletter. It's found in the morning service of "The Spoken Word is the Original Seed" (p. 6:2), we have a marvelous formula if you will, for studying the Message:
"And then, if there be any questions that you don't understand, I ask you to bring your books, and then you who have tape recorders can get the tapes, and put them in your home, and set down with an open heartjust an open heart. Just lay it out and say, "Lord, I've just relaxed now; I'm going to listen"; and then when you catch something, turn the recorder off and go get the Scripture. And the Bible said, Jesus said, "They are they that testify of Me." See? And let's look through the Scripture and see if it's all right."
And when we do go to the Scripture, the Word is right there for us. Revelation 10:7, "In the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He hath declared to His servants the prophets".
Jesus told the disciples in that day that many great men and sages desired to see the things they saw but did not. Paul spoke of the mystery in Colossians 1:26-27, "Even the mystery which has been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to His saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory".
What an honour it is to see these things, and not "through a glass darkly but face to face" by virtue of the prophet's Message.
Here is where the seventh angel began to expound:
"Here's the plan of it: The first thing happens, there is an announcement in the heavens first. What happened? A Seal is opened. What is that? A mystery is unfolded. See? And when a mystery unfolds, then a trumpet sounds. It declares a war. Or a plague falls, and a Church Age opened. See? What is the war part? The angel of the Church catches the mystery of God, not fully yet revealed, but when he does, he catches this mystery of God, and then he goes forth to the people (after the mystery has been given to him), goes forth to the people. What does he do out there? He begins to proclaim that Message, and what does it start? A war, a Spiritual war. And then God takes His messenger with the elect of that Age, and lays them away asleep, and then He drops a plague upon them who rejected it: a temporary judgment. And then, after that is over, then he goes on, and they denominate, and bring in denominations, and start off with that man's work like of Wesley and all the rest of them, and then it gets all in a scrapple again; and then another mystery comes forth. Then what happens? Another messenger arrives on earth for a Church Age. See? Then when he arrives, the Trumpet sounds. He declares war. See? And then what happens? Finally then he's caught away. And then when he's laid away, then plague falls destroys them. Spiritual death hits the church and she's gone, that group. Then He goes on to another one. Oh, it's a great plan until it comes to that last angel. Now, he has no certain mystery, but he gathers up all that's been lost in them other Ages, all the truths that wasn't truly revealed yet (See?), as the revelation come. Then he reveals those things in his day. If you want to read it, there it is: Revelation 10:1-4 you get it? All right" (ibid p. 126:4 -127:3).
"Trumpets speaks of political disturbance: wars. Matthew 24, Jesus spoke of it. He said, "You'll hear of wars and rumors of war . . ."
The First Seal of Revelation is also found in Matthew 24:4-5 where Jesus warned His disciples, "Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in My Name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many." Such is "the mystery of Iniquity" working within the framework of the Church. That is exactly what the Prophet revealed in the First Seal. That White Horse Rider was not Christ as so many eminent theologians sincerely but erroneously teach. At the first they could not know as the Book was sealed, but afterwards, when Christ had opened the Book and revealed its mystery through His Prophet, they were deceived, not believing him whom God had sent. Brother Branham left no stone unturned in revealing this mystery.
"Notice, the mystery. He's coming, riding . . . There's got to be something to change this Church, you know that. There's got to be something. Notice. No man knowed but Himself. Now, notice, no man knowed but Hisself.
"And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His Name was called The Word of God. (Oh, notice). And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He tread the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He had on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS".
There comes the Messiah. There He is, not this fellow on this horse back here. Watch the different. Here He stands with the Book in His hand here. The redemptive work is just . . . He hasn't took His place yet.
So it was not the Christ that went forth, the Holy Spirit. Not disagreeing with them great men, no, sir, I don't do it. I wouldn't want to do that, but this is what my revelation of it is. See, if you got something different, well, that's all right, but it ain't all right with me. See, I believe it this way; you know what. See?
And notice, Christ is not seen any more (See?) from the time there. But He is on a white horse; so if this guy is riding a white horse, he's only an impersonator of Christ. See? Get that? Notice, the rider on the white horse don't have any name. He might use two or three titles, but he hasn't got any name. But Christ has a Name. What is it? The Word of God. That's what it is. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." And the Word made flesh. See?
The rider has no name, but Christ is called the Word of God. That's what He is. He's called that. Now, He's got a Name that no man knows, but He's called the Word of God. This guy isn't called nothing (See?), but he's on a white horse.
The rider has no arrows for his bow. Did you notice? He had a bow, but there's nothing said about having any arrows; so he must be a bluffer. That's right. Maybe he's got a lot of thunder and no lightning, but you find out Christ had both lightning and thunder; for out of His mouth goes a sharp two-edged Sword, and He smites the nations. And this guy can't smite nothing (See?), but he's playing the part of a hypocrite. He's going forth riding on a white horse, going out to conquer.
Christ has a sharp Sword, and watch. It comes from His mouththe living Word. That's the Word of God revealed to His servants, like He said to Moses: "Go, stand there and hold that stick out yonder, call for flies," and there was flies. Sure. Whatever He said, He done it, and it come to pass. His living Word. . . God and His Word is the self same Person. God is the Word.
Who is this mysterious rider of the first Church Age then? Who is he? Let's think of it. Who is this mysterious rider that starts forth in the first Church Age and rides plumb on out into eternity, goes to the end.
A white horse rider went out. See? Who is he? He's mighty in his conquering power, is a great fellow in his conquering power. You want me to tell you who he is? He's the antichrist. That's exactly what he is.
Now, because, you see, if an antichrist. . . Jesus said that the two would be so close together until it would deceive the very elected, the Bride, if it was possible. Antichrist, it's the antichrist spirit.
Notice, when Nicolaitia (See?), antichrist is finally. . . He's incarnate in a man; then he's crowned. When he starts off as a Nicolaitia spirit in the church, he's a spirit. You can't crown a spirit. But three hundred years later he become a pope. And then they crowned him. He had no crown to start with, but he got a crown later (See?), when that spirit become incarnate. See? He become a man. Nicolaitane doctrine become a man; then they could crown it. They couldn't do it because he was just a doctrine. Glory.
Notice, and when this Holy Spirit that we have, becomes incarnate to us, the One that's in our midst now in the form of the Holy Ghost, becomes incarnate to us in the Person of Jesus Christ, we'll crown Him King of kings . . . ? . . . That's right. See" (ibid. p. 161:5)?
Satan began his incarnation from the antichrist spirit to the false prophet back when the church was still primarily Jewish. Very soon at the Seventh Trump and close of the Gentile dispensation he will be cast out of the heavens and incarnate the Pope of Rome to rule the first stage of the New World Order. The squeeze will come down heavily and after a short but powerful ministry we who are alive and remain will be changed in the atoms and be caught up to meet the Lord with all our New Testament brethren.
This is war my brother or sister, and the Devil is taking a beating because revelation by the Holy Spirit renders Him powerless. The only people who would not rejoice in this mighty showdown are those on the Enemy's losing side. That white horse rider was Satan and He has fooled men for a long time into believing he is the Christ. But under the First Seal, Jesus blew His cover and exposed his plans which are to build a New World Order: "Mystery, Babylon the Great, a cage of every unclean and hateful birdruled by a priest-kingan incarnate pope of Rome worshipped by all whose names are not in the Lamb's Book of Life" (Revelation 13:1-8; 18:2).
Satan attempted his plan many times under Old Testament. After deceiving Eve and polluting the human race, he built his prototype kingdom in Babel, where his ancient priest-king Nimrod ordered secular and religious affairs, but God scattered that unregenerate rabble at the Tower. Then he build Great Babylon which became his earthly seat and the first of four Gentile world empires. But as we read in the Church Ages, Satan's seat relocated to Pergamos. Finally all the sin and uncleanness, wickedness and iniquity accumulated since the Fall became concentrated in a universal church empire called "Mystery, Babylon the Great." Like the Kingdom of God it rules from withinnot from the heart by faithbut from the head by intellectual reasoning against the revealed Word.
This is consummate revelation; nothing can escape Him who has eyes like a flame of Fire. God has revealed all the subtle moves and nuances Satan employs, so it is not possible for him to deceive the elect. By divine revelation the Holy Spirit frees us from the creeds, dogma and rituals of the Judeo-Roman Catholic church, her once Protestant daughters and the lewdness of Talmudic Judaism.
Since Satan does not change his spots, his motives at the end-time are what they were in Genesisto disarm believers by disinformation and misinformation. As TRUTH sets God's people free, propaganda and deceit enslaves his people, and God will visit those surrendered to Satan's power with a strong delusion, making them believe Satan's lie and be damned by it (II Thessalonians 2:1-12).
Stay away from the trickery of the wild untamable beast, everything in His kingdom ends in death. When the Devil-incarnate Serpent approached Eve, he did not deny God's Word, he was 99.9% on the Word, enticing the woman with that 0.01% of added knowledge. "You'll be wise; you'll be the first with a PhD in education. Oh, you'll be like God too; and since God is so loving and cuddly, you will not surely die if you add just one word to what He has said in order to follow this illuminated path and fulfill His command to "multiply and fill the earth." Satan acted as God's high priest and proceeded to impart knowledge God had not revealed to His prophet Son Adam. Aside from adding the three letter word "not" to what God had said, he quoted Him faithfully. But as the Prophet taught us, one word off is the kingdom of Satan, and Death.
We find the same admonition in II Thessalonians 2:1-3, "Regarding the 'parousia' Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we beg you, brethren, don't become unsettled in your minds, or anxious by some pretended revelation of the Spirit, by word, or by letter allegedly from us implying that the day of the Lord has already arrived. Let no man deceive you in any way: for that day shall not come, unless there is an apostasy first, and that man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition" (I Timothy 4:1).
The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy, and since all the New Testament speaks of THIS HOUR, that prophecy was especially given for THIS DAY.
Let No Man Deceive You! Under the First Seal the controversy about the Name of God was once and for all time also settled. It was not JVHU or Jehovah or anything the scholars came up with. In this dispensation it is Lord Jesus Christ, that glorious Name from whom the whole Family in heaven and earth is named. And as a Bride takes the name of her husband the Name of Christ's Bride is Mrs. Lord Jesus Christ.
Let No Man Deceive You! The money is gone the world is bankrupt. The bailouts for US banks and European countries is all part of the strong delusion to entrap sinners. Our Lord long ago admonished us to lay up our treasure in heaven where thieves cannot break in and steal and moth cannot corrupt. Here on earth under the leadership of 'the City,' thieves run the Fed and World Central Banks who leach the value out of currencies and impoverish nations. The Prophet foretold a depression that will be far worse that the Great Depression engineered by the international banksters. Its onset has been front page news for two years, and recovery is not imminent. The meltdown has not yet begun in earnest.
The Prophet has gone; there is no other Message to come. We can't go back to fishing or any of our chosen pastimes. We must hold to God's unchanging Word. Christ revealed God's Absolute in the revelation of the Seals, which will take us through the remaining moments of time as we know it and into eternity. The process has begun (Revelation 4:1). The Lord will reveal more and more of Himself in the eternal age to come as His elect feed directly from the Tree of Life.
That Something required to change the people of God has been with us for the last 47 years. It is the Presence of Him who has "healing in His wings," who imparts "the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Himself to enlighten the eyes of our understanding so we may know what is the hope of His calling, and what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and how overwhelmingly great is His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power" (Malachi 4:2, Ephesians 1:17-19). nl639.htm
