Solar Eclipse complete Earthquakes will follow
July 12, 2010 Earth Changes researcher Mitch Battros claims the slow release of oil from under the continental shelf [in the Gulf of Mexico] must accelerate the threatened earthquakes at the Andreas Fault and in the Yellowstone National Park calderon. "I predict increased earthquake and volcanic activity to occur over the next 14 days. The events I am speaking of will be large to mega events causing high fatalities and significant damage. I would suggest the areas of most interest would be Bay of Bengal, Baja California, Mexico, Puerto Rico Region, Japan Region, and Mediterranean Region."
"History shows at almost all full solar eclipse events, large earth changing events occur within 14 days prior to, and 14 days after the eclipse. Although last night's 6.2 earthquake which hit Chile could be considered large and significant; it is not the one I am predicting for this current 14-day window. The one expected [following the July 11, 2010] Total Solar Eclipse will be a magnitude 7.0 or larger. . ." Full story: Earth Changes Media (available only to subscribers).
Southern California Faults feeling Pressure
July 10, 2010 Seismologists are increasingly concerned that the 7.2 Mexicali temblor on April 4 placed more pressure on faults around the Southland, resulting in increased quake activity over the last three months. . . "The probability of a larger earthquake on those faults could be high within the next year or two," said John Rundle, a professor of physics and geology at UC Davis.
Rundle said the aftermath of the Mexicali quake is turning out to be significantly different from the aftermath of the two other large temblors to hit Southern California in the last two decades. Both the 7.3 Landers quake in 1992 and the 7.1 Hector Mine quake in 1999 in the Mojave Desert resulted in aftershocks that dissipated relatively quickly. By contrast, the Mexicali quake has been followed by aftershocks and "triggered earthquakes" that are showing no signs of ending. . .

Central Banks dumping Gold at a Torrid Pace
July 7, 2010 Central banks are pawning their gold to the Bank for International Settlements at a record rate, taking advantage of the precious metal's historically high value to raise cash.
A little-noticed data point at the back of a 216-page report released last week by the BIS shows the international agency has taken 349 metric tons of gold since Decemberallowing central banks to raise a record $14 billion.
The number surprised the market, which had assumed most central banks had retained their holdings of gold. Instead, the BIS data show that they have been entering these gold swapsexchanging their gold with the BIS in return for cash, agreeing to repurchase the gold at a later date. Full story: wsj.com
Comment: As the article notes, this has been going on for awhile, and these transactions don't directly impact the open gold market, as it's not as though this is gold just flooding the market. . . The bottom line is that central banks still want flexibility, even if that means potentially-debased "paper" currencies.
The BIS is Rothschild-controlled. Rothschilds are banksters to the Vatican. When the US dollar fails and gold skyrockets in value this activity will bankrupt the (Rothschild-controlled) central banks and the nations they pretend to serve.
Brother Branham said, "The church system of the Roman Catholic and the Protestant in coming together will control the whole wealth of the world system and force the whole earth into its religious trap, or will kill them, by refusing them the privilege of buying and selling whereby they would make a living [Revelation 13:15-18]. This will be accomplished simply, for the harlot's daughters are all but gone back to her. In the meantime, Rome has acquired nearly all the supplies of gold. The Jews have the bonds and all the paper. At the right time, the harlot will destroy the present day money system by calling in all the paper and demanding gold. With no gold, the system falls. The Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance, and the harlot church will take over the whole world".
The Global Oil Scam: 50 Times Bigger than Madoff
November 11, 2009 Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS), BP (BP), Total (TOT), Shell (RDS.A), Deutsche Bank (DB) and Societe Generale (SCGLY.PK) founded the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) in 2000. ICE is an online commodities and futures marketplace. It is outside the US and operates free from the constraints of US laws. The exchange was set up to facilitate "dark pool" trading in the commodities markets. Billions of dollars are being placed on oil futures contracts at the ICE and the beauty of this scam is that they NEVER take delivery, per se. They just ratchet up the price with leveraged speculation using your TARP money. This year alone they ratcheted up the global cost of oil from $40 to $80 per barrel.
A Congressional investigation into energy trading in 2003 discovered that ICE was being used to facilitate "round-trip" trades. "Round-trip" trades occur when one firm sells energy to another and then the second firm simultaneously sells the same amount of energy back to the first company at exactly the same price. No commodity ever changes hands. But when done on an exchange, these transactions send a price signal to the market and they artificially boost revenue for the company. This is nothing more than a massive fraud, pure and simple.
This is how the geniuses on Wall Street earn their big bonusesthey steal it. . . "It appears clear that BP and Goldman Sachs have been working collaborativelyat least at a strategic levelfor maybe 15 years now. Their trading strategy has evolved over time as the global market has . . . become ever more financialised. . ." Full story: seekingalpha.com

The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine
Ilan Pappé, Israeli historian and professor of political science at Haifa University wrote: On a cold Wednesday afternoon, 10 March 1948, a group of eleven men, veteran Zionist leaders together with young military Jewish officers, put the final touches on a plan for the ethnic cleansing of Palestine (1). That same evening, military orders were dispatched to units on the ground to prepare for the systematic expulsion of Palestinians from vast areas of the country (2). The orders came with a detailed description of the methods to be used to forcibly evict the people: large-scale intimidation; laying siege to and bombarding villages and population centers; setting fire to homes, properties, and goods; expelling residents; demolishing homes; and, finally, planting mines in the rubble to prevent the expelled inhabitants from returning. Each unit was issued its own list of villages and neighborhoods to target in keeping with the master plan. Code-named Plan D (Dalet in Hebrew), this was the fourth and final version of vaguer plans outlining the fate that was in store for the native population of Palestine (3). The previous three plans had articulated only obscurely how the Zionist leadership intended to deal with the presence of so many Palestinians on the land the Jewish national movement wanted for itself. This fourth and last blueprint spelled it out clearly and unambiguously: the Palestinians had to go . . .

International Conference on Gaza: Breaking the Siege
July 11, 2010 We are dealing with a carefully planned military operation. The Israeli Navy Commando which attacked the Marvi Marmara on May 31st had prior knowledge of who was on the Turkish ship including where passengers were residing in terms of cabin layout. According to Swedish author Henning Mankell, who was on board the Marvi Marmara, "the Israeli forces attacked sleeping civilians." Specific individuals were targeted. . . "We were witnesses to premeditated murders. . ." The killing of civilians is intended to trigger a response by Palestinian resistance forces, which in turn justifies Israeli retaliation (on "humanitarian" grounds) as well as a process of military escalation. . . There are indications that the US was consulted at the highest levels regarding the nature of the military operation directed against the flotilla. Moreover, in the wake of the attacks, both the US and the UK unequivocally reaffirmed their support to Israel.
The actions of Israel against the Freedom Flotilla have important ramifications. Israel's criminal actions in international waters have contributed to weakening the US-NATO-Israel military alliance. . . It should be understood that Israel and Turkey are partners and major actors in the US-NATO planned aerial attacks on Iran, which have been in the pipeline since mid-2005. The rift between Turkey and Israel has a direct bearing on NATO as a military alliance. Turkey is one of the more powerful NATO member states with regard to its conventional forces. The rift with Israel breaks a consensus within the Atlantic Alliance. It also undermines ongoing US-NATO-Israel pre-emptive war plans directed against Iran, which until recently were endorsed by the Turkish military. . .
Israel's blockade of Gaza is in large part motivated by the broader issue of control of Gaza's territorial waters, which contain significant reserves of natural gas. What is at stake is the confiscation of Palestinian gas fields and the unilateral de facto declaration of Israeli sovereignty over Gaza's maritime areas. If the blockade were to be broken, Israel's de facto control over Gaza's offshore gas reserves would be in jeopardy. . . The issue of sovereignty over Gaza's gas fields is crucial. From a legal standpoint, the gas reserves belong to Palestine.
The death of Yasser Arafat, the election of the Hamas government and the ruin of the Palestinian Authority have enabled Israel to establish de facto control over Gaza's offshore gas reserves.
The invasion plan of the Gaza Strip under "Operation Cast Lead" was set in motion in June 2008, according to Israeli military sources . . . "even as Israel was beginning to negotiate a ceasefire agreement with Hamas". . . That very same month, the Israeli authorities contacted British Gas, with a view to resuming crucial negotiations pertaining to purchase of Gaza's natural gas. . . The military occupation of Gaza is intent upon transferring the sovereignty of the gas fields to Israel in violation of international law.
If this were to occur, the Gaza gas fields would be integrated into Israel's offshore installations, which are contiguous to those of the Gaza Strip. Full story: globalresearch.ca
The Technological Revolution and the Future of Freedom Part II
Revolution and Repression in America
June 29, 2010 Technological Revolution has led to a diametrically opposed, antagonistic, and conflicting geopolitical reality: never before has humanity been so awakened to issues of power, exploitation, imperialism and domination; and simultaneously, never before have elites been so transnational and global in orientation, and with the ability to impose such a truly global system of scientific despotism and political oppression. These are the two major geopolitical realities of the world today. Never in all of human history has mankind been so capable of achieving a true global political psycho-social awakening; nor . . . in such danger of being subjected to a truly global scientific totalitarianism, potentially more oppressive than any system known before, and without a doubt more technologically capable of imposing a permanent despotism upon humanity. . .
This new reality in the world, coupled with the fact that the world's population has never been so vast, presents a challenge to elites seeking to dominate people all over the world who are aware and awakened to the realities of social inequality, war, poverty, exploitation, disrespect, imperialism and domination. This directly implies that these populations will be significantly more challenging to control: economically, politically, socially, psychologically and spiritually. Thus, from the point of view of the global oligarchy, the only method of imposing order and controlon this unique and historical human conditionis through the organized chaos of economic crises, war, and the rapid expansion and institutionalization of a global scientific dictatorship. . .
The events of September 11th, 2001, sparked two major geopolitical events. The first was the implementation of the Bush Doctrinethe 'War on Terror'which was organized in response to the terrorist attacks. This imperialist expansion led to the war and occupation of Afghanistan, the war on Iraq and subsequent occupation, the war in Lebanon in 2006, the war on Somalia, continuing military expansionism and imposition in the Palestinian territories, as well as expansive covert operations in the Middle East, Central Asia, Africa and around the world.
The second major geopolitical trend instigated by the 9/11 attacks was the formation of what has come to be known as the '9/11 Truth Movement,' in which millions of people around the world, including thousands of academics, architects, engineers, government officials, intelligence and military officials and other professionals, as well as an exponentially growing abundance of people in the general population internationally have sought to question and challenge the official accounts of the events of 9/11. . .
With the increasing militarization of foreign policy, we also see the increasing militarization of domestic politics, and most notably the emergence of a high-tech surveillance police state: a 'Homeland Security State.' National and international elites are in the process of incrementally constructing a 'new totalitarianism' in replacing democracy . . . the military is increasingly poised to partake in policing. Further, over the past decade, we have seen the rapid expansion of 'Continuity of Government' (COG) plans, which plan for the suspension of the Constitution and imposition of martial law in the event of an emergency. At this point in American society, if there was a rapid and expansive economic collapse or another major terrorist attack on US soil, America would transform into a military government, more fascist in nature than anything; but equipped with an arsenal and 'technetronic' police state the likes of which no dictator in history has had access to. . .
One interesting facet that very little is known about in the militarization of domestic society and incremental totalitarianism is how the coercive state apparatus, while being justified under the guise of fighting terrorism or 'protecting the Homeland,' is in fact being directed against citizen activists and popular political movements. . . To those in power, 'peace' is an 'extremist' idea, because 'war' and 'violence' are the norms . . . One startling and deeply concerning development in the area of 'Homeland Security' is the highly secretive and deliberately quiet establishment of 'detention centers' within the United States, designed to house millions of people in the event of an 'emergency' . . .
For the first time in the last 500 years, the East has risenwith China and Indiaas new global powers, rising within the system not against it; marking the first time that nation-states have not risen against the global power, but with the global power. China and India are being brought within a new global political and economic system that is being constructed: a global totalitarian system of continental colonies to a global state. . .
It is a difficult balancing act for global powersparticularly the United Statesto manage the integration of China into the 'new world order', while simultaneously both of them compete for control of global resources, located primarily in regions of the world which are experiencing the most rapid and extensive 'awakening'. . . In many people's view of the global economic crisis, the problem was 'greed'. Greed is not the problem, it is but a symptom of the disease that is 'power'; which, like a cancer, expands and kills its host. Humanity is entering what will likely be the most turbulent period in human history. . . If we keep creating positions of great power, and continually globalize power, it will attract exactly the wrong type of people to those positions of power: the ones that want it and want to abuse the power. These people are more likely to get to these positions of power because they are willing to do anything to get there, which means that once they have it, they will do anything to maintain and expand it. And so power grows, and the cancer spreads. . . True peace will never be possible with a singular global power structure; for once power is globally centralized, what more can the powerful seek to achieve? Thus, the powerful fight each other for control of the centralized authority, paranoia governs their minds, and distrust and hatred directs their actions. . . We cannot any longer view each other through the lenses of power: through the media, government, economic, and social structures. These structures are designed with the intent to mislead and misrepresent people; they are illegitimate and must be considered as such. . . With power, peace is impossible.
From the militarization of domestic society, it would appear as if we are moving into a world quite reminiscent of George Orwell's 1984, in which the world is divided into a few major regional blocs that war against each other and terrorize their populations through acts of physical terror and total surveillance ('Big Brother'). This is but a phase and evolution into the final stagethe grand ideaor as Aldous Huxley referred to it, 'The Ultimate Revolution': the global scientific dictatorship. Full story: globalresearch.ca

Is New Oz PM Head of Satanist Lodge?
July 13, 2010 In a dramatic coup June 24 2010, Julia Gillard took over as Prime Minister from Kevin Rudd and became Australia's first female PM.
Gillard is the first PM to be unmarried and a lesbian. (She is in a relationship with Tim Mathiesonwho is a "beard"). She is the first PM to be sworn in without making reference to God. (Gillard is an atheist and has no religious beliefs).
A reader has suggested that Gillard is head of the Satanic Alpha lodge of Sydney ("Australia's global satanic legacy and future").
This is based on the posthumous confessions of a leading Australian Satanist "Frater 616": "Some of the deadliest, most effective and disarming assassins are women. Within the Alpha Lodges they are worshipped as embodiments of the Dark Goddesswho is known by many names and is virgin still! Currently the Outer Head of the Alpha Lodge Australasia is a very highly placed and successful Federal politicianwhose satanic name is Bestia."
We asked Aloysius Fozdyke, (the man who brought Frater 616's testimony to the world), to comment. He is a member of the Alpha Lodge and we assume acts with their authorization. His reply on the "Bestia"-Gillard connection: "I'd rather not comment at this stage" . . . Full story: henrymakow.com
Comment: Luke 17:28-30; Ecclesiastes 7:26.
The Second Seal
By Boyd Reneau
"Calling those things which were not as though they were," Abraham looked for a City whose Builder and Ruler is God. His seed, who speak with like conviction, are that City. The birth of Jesus Messiah was proclaimed by the Angel Gabriel when John the forerunner was six months in his mother's womb. At his circumcision six months before Jesus' birth, thirty years before His public ministry and 2,000 years before the remission of Israel's sins and rebirth in one day, Zachariah declared: "Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for He has visited and redeemed His people, and raised up a powerful Saviour for us in the house of His servant David, as He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient timesthat we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all who hate us. To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember His holy Covenant; the oath which He swore to our father Abraham, to grant us, that we being delivered from the hand of our enemies might serve Him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him, all the days of our life."
"And You, little One, shall be called the Prophet of the Highest: for You will go before the Lord to prepare His ways; to give knowledge of salvation to His people by the remission of their sins, through the tender mercy of our God; by which the Dayspring [or Bright and Morning Star] will visit us from on high, to give Light to them sitting in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace" (Luke 1:68-76).
Zechariah was a man of Abrahamic faith. And so today we see a modern Israel state in the homeland pending the anointing of two Hebrew prophets in the Spirit and power that endued Moses and Elijah (Zechariah 4; Revelation 11) and the return of the Covenant people. Abraham staggered not at the promise through unbelief but was strong in faith, giving glory to God. Jesus told the apostate Jews, "You have not known the One you say is your God for He honours Me. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day: and he saw it, and was glad" (John 8:54-56). It was his belief in the Word of God's promise that was the cause of Abraham's joy and the rejuvenation of his life enabling the patriarchal paternity (Genesis 15:4; 17:17; 18:10; Hebrews 11:11-12; John 1:13). Isaac's birth, like the resurrection of our Lord (Psalm 16:10), was mediated by the inspiration of faith and was therefore a type of the inspiration of faith by which the Virgin conceived and the rapturing faith we will receive by grace. Abraham saw the day of Christ in the hope for an heir (not heirs) for the inheritance (Genesis 17:7; 22:18; Romans 4:19-21; 9:8; Galatians 3:16; Galatians 4:23; Hebrews 11:8-20).
Jesus Messiah was the object of Abraham's highest desire. Abraham saw His day through faith in the promises of God, in types like the sacrifice of Isaac signifying the death and resurrection of the promised Seed, and in the manifestations of Melchisedec, who is the Logos wherein the Lord appeared veiled in the flesh of a created man just before Abraham and Sarah's bodies were renewed to receive their promised son (Genesis 14; 18). That same God has appeared in our time, veiled behind the flesh of a sinner saved by grace, as surety to impart the faith of Jesus Christ that our bodies might be renewed to receive Abraham's greater Son.
The Lord has been so good in revealing His secrets to us. In I Corinthians 2:6-10 the great apostle Paul said, "We speak wisdom among those who are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, who come to nought: but we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world to our glory: which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, No eye has seen, no ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit: for the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God".
This great outpouring of the Spirit at the end-time is truly the capstone revelation of the Pentecostal Feast whereby we crowned our Lord King of kings when He claimed the Book of Redemption (Revelation 5:8-14). In earlier years believers rejoiced when they saw Jesus in the Scriptures, but could not have imagined the glorious richness unveiled before us in the opening of the Seals. Almighty God, who would not hide from Abraham the utter destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah (since his Seed would become a great and mighty nation), has revealed the mystery and purpose of His will to Abraham's faith seed in this end-time just before the destruction of the Gentile world.
Throughout the Ages, fellowship in God's unchanging Word and service to the Lord has been paramount in the sight of believers. Since the loose ends of doctrine have been gathered into the unity of the faith we now have the "true sayings of God" by which we will transcend gravity. Time and the things of this world grow dim in the Light of this Message as it imparts faith displayed in a life that is the Token of our soon-coming body change.
In the First Seal the rider on the white horse had a bow but no arrows. Then he received a triple crown and went forth conquering and to conquer. He had many titles, such as Vicar of Christ, and Holy Father, but he is not named until the Fourth Seal.
The spirit of antichrist was insinuating itself into the circle of the Church then as it has insinuated itself into the circle of this Message today. Under the First Seal he established spiritual power which he consolidated as the Roman Universal church in union with the state. Man-made creed and tradition usurped the pure Word of God, Papal Encyclicals and secret conclaves supplanted the Leadership of the Spirit, and worship in Spirit and in Truth was smothered by liturgy and ritual in an alien tongue. Whereas God had ordained a five-fold ministry, "evil men and impostors went from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived." The righteous were excommunicated, incarcerated, beaten and stoned, but their foundation was "the full counsel of God" with the demonstration of the Holy Ghost working through them. It would be this teaching of truth and righteousness that Satan would attack.
In the Second Seal Satan would usurp political power over all states under the fourth Gentile world empire of Rome. Revelation 6: 3-4, "When the Lamb had opened the Second Seal, I . . . (insert your name here) . . . heard the second living creature say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and its rider was empowered to take peace from the earth, so that men should kill one another: and he was given a great sword".
This was Satan in another stage of his incarnation from that seemingly innocuous antichrist spirit called nicolaitanism to the false prophet and Supreme Pontiff of the universal or Catholic church, his triple crown signified dominion over heaven, earth and purgatory. This is the IMPERSONATOR at work.
God is unfolding Himself from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts to the glorified flesh of Jesus Christ and the New Testament saints by manifested faith in His unchanging Word, while Satan is incarnating himself into the corruptible flesh of a Pope and his blasphemous world church system by perverting God's revealed Word which is Spirit and Life to its antithesis, which is Death. Whereas God is called "Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war," the Enemy is unfaithful and deceitful, bearing spiritual and natural death from the beginning until he and his subjects are cast into the Lake of Fire.
When Moses delivered Israel it was born naturally as "one nation under God," but Israel broke His Covenant and killed His Messiah. Since 1954 citizens of the United States, which is Israel's antitype, "pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." And so long as she was "under God"the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacobshe was "indivisible," but today she is under many gods, for "as it was in the days of Noah" America has become the "great big melting pot" of miscegenation between the Sons of God and the daughters of men as the Lord told Daniel, "they shall be mixed in marriage, but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay" (Daniel 2:43; Genesis 6:1-4; Matthew 24:37).
Brother Branham said, "This America is the prostitute of the nations. That's exactly what she is, and she's going to be worse than ever now. She's coming to her end. The Bible speaks of her doom, tells how she's going to be. America: lowdown, rotten, filthy, no good. That's exactly right. She's been a great nation. She's carried the Gospel Message. What makes her the way she is? Because she's turned down the Gospel Message and rejected the truth. She's horrible. She's got it coming; don't worry. I seen it in the vision as THUS SAITH THE LORD. It's coming. She's going to pay for her sins.
["The last and seventh vision was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:3)].
Back when America was America, she was a great nation. The greatest the world's ever known since Israel, was America; but she sure has polluted herself now. She's rejected the Message" (Revelation Chapter Four, Part III, p. 661:87-88).
"O Lord, the hope of Israel, all that forsake You shall be ashamed, and they that depart from You shall be consigned to the dust, [and not to glory], because they have forsaken the Lord, the Fountain of living waters" (Jeremiah 17:13).
Like Israel, the United States has ended in apostasy, and having rejected her last opportunity for national repentance in 1956/7, Brother Branham said, "Its a million miles from being a Christian country. I don't even pray for it. How can I pray for it, and it won't repent under the mighty powers of God demonstrated before it, and denying, and closing the doors to it, and walking away? I commit it to God. And she's going further away, and now she's going to sink. Just watch what happens" (Trying to do God a Service without being the Will of God, p. 23:136).
Every government of the earth is owned and ruled by the Devil who is the god of this evil age. He showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world that were and would be, seeking to gift them without sacrifice in order to prevent Him from playing the part of our Kinsman Redeemer (Matthew 4:8-9). The US, which was founded by the Pilgrim Fathers seeking freedom of worship was once considered the greatest peace-loving nation on earth, is now the blooded image of the Beast of Imperial Rome ruled by Satan's children (John 8:44).
Jesus symbolized the United States as a beast, which in Scripture signifies a power. It was the America buffalo that came out of the earth and had two horns like a lambsignifying the separation of civil and religious power with freedom of religion so that at first he acted like a lamb and he spoke like a lamb"friendship with all [nations] but alliances with none." However it did not age into an old ram but morphed into the image of the Roman dragon. Today, the "Land of the Free and Home of the Brave" is shackled with insurmountable debt; cowardly killing innocent people in foreign lands and even citizens within in her own borders at the behest of the Enemy of God and Adam's race. "Exercising all the power of the first beast [Rome] before him, and causing all who dwell on the earth, to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed [when Imperial Rome morphed into Papal Rome]. And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven [with atomic and hydrogen bombs], deceiving the nations by means of these miracles . . ." (Revelation 13:11-18).
Interestingly, in her July 6, 2010 address, Queen Elizabeth II challenged the United Nations to fight global dangers by "waging" peace, then entered ground zero for the first time to honor the victims of the 9/11 attacks. "Waging peace" my brother/sister is identical to the Orwellian "peace offensive" launched by Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev in 1956 roughly one year before the Queen's first visit to the UN. It should be apparent that the world has gone full circle in the mystery of iniquity and the "cup has been filled with a double portion in retribution" (Revelation 18:6). The spirit of Laodicean apostasy covers this globe from end to end. All are deceived, with the exception of those who receive their revelation from the Angel with the open book in His hand (Revelation 10:10).
Daniel (8:25), who saw the deadly nature of Satan working through all four Gentile world powers said concerning the rider of the fourth horse, "By his scheming he will make treachery win out, and in chutzpah magnify himself in his heart, and by peace destroy the unsuspecting . . ." So today the world is smitten by a "peace offensive" employing all the subterfuge and lying wonders initiated when Lucifer rode his white horse, indicative of righteousness, which continues to deceive theologians after two thousand years. By this means he will achieve one world dictatorship, an objective that clearly could not be gained by a conventional military confrontation.
Like our treacherous "lawmakers," Satan has employed the tactics of his Fabian Society to gradually transform himself from the spirit of antichrist to the false prophet in the days when the majority in Christian circles was either Israelites or so-called Jews. After the Church goes Home he will be cast down to earth to become the beast, the Devil incarnate, the red dragon himself. He is incarnate in his people then. He has his people in his power. The false prophet has prophesied them right into it, given them over to strong delusions to believe a lie and be damned by it . . . (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 204:3-4; Revelation 12:7-13; 13:1-10; II Thessalonians 2:7-12).
The Bible clearly states that power was given to him to take peace from the earth and that's just what he's been doing. He was a LIAR and a MURDERER from the beginning so you can't expect the truth from him because no truth abides in him or his children. His second horse was blood red and his works pertained to the Christian persecution during the Dark Ages.
Speaking of the Second Seal, Jesus said, "You shall hear of wars and rumors of wars; this does not signal My return, for this must take place, but the end is not yet." Regarding the Gentile dispensation He prophesied, "Great tribulation [commencing with the siege of Jerusalem] such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days should are shortened, there should no flesh be saved [for the rapture]: but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened" (Matthew 24:6; 15-28; Revelation 7:14; 20:4).
To this day millions of Christians have been persecuted, tortured, burned at the stake, fed to lions, and killed on a grand scale. From the time of Augustine of Hippo until about 1850, the Roman Catholic church alone martyred 68 millions who denied her doctrine, which is the mark of the beastor simply read God's Bible. Foxes Book of Martyrs and S.S. Schmucker's Discourse on the Commemoration of the Glorious Reformation of the 16th Century detail the horrors believers endured for the NAME of Jesus Christ and the triumph of faith which enabled them to sing hymns, pray for their torturers, and declare "No pain" as hot coals slowly cooked their limbs.
Since Britain was conquered in 1688 and became merely a colony of the 'City of London,' her power and the resources of what is today 'the Empire of the City of London' (or Commonwealth of Nations), has been directed to achieving one world government. In just the last century 'the City' was guilty of the deaths of hundreds of millions of Christians and others. As I write, billions worldwide are being desensitized and dehumanized by Hollywood sorcery through the principality of the "air" per medium of film, television, music and computer games. From cradle to grave men's minds are manipulated with disinformation in education and the news by "spirits of demons, working miracles, which confer with the rulers of this world to gather them for the battle against the Lord on the great day of God the Almighty" (Revelation 16:14; 18:23). This is evident in the Allied atrocities of World Wars I and IIthe real holocaustand the ongoing slaughter of peaceful and innocent nations with the objective of controlling their resources and rendering them subject to world government, justified by the myth of three holocausts and fraudulent claims of a Muslim attack on 9/11. Can you see that the (once) Christian nations are as apostate as Israel was in the days of our Lord, and that our young men (and women) are being blooded to kill all who refuse to receive the doctrine or obey the edicts of the Judaeo-Roman church and her daughters in the coming tribulation?
Many of us can still openly purchase and freely read the Bible or the history of the Christian Church, and fellowship to establish others in the faith, but as I write other believers around the world are being tortured and martyred. Use your time wisely, and "redeem the time for the days are evil . . . the night comes when no man can work," so shine your Light for Jesus while you are able.
When the mob descended in the Garden of Gethsemane, Peter was of a mind to fight the infidels but our Lord told him, "Put away your sword, for they who live by the sword shall die by the sword." As NO Christian is above his Master, on no account did Christians condone or participate in the martyrdom of men of other religions let alone professed Christians.
Satan rode his red horse for almost a thousand years, it was the bloodiest era of Church history. Under this Seal, which compassed the Thyatira Church Age (606 1520), he exchanged his bow for "a great sword" to kill all who would not receive the false teachings of his church and gain political power. Today his church is in every nation (Matthew 4:8-9), so please warn your denominational friends Death rules in churches that curry favour with government for tax exemptions and other privileges.
Satan attended church at the First Nicaea Council where he merged ecclesiastical powers and political powers in the universal Roman Catholic church. To those who were carnal-minded it seemed perfectly reasonable to unite the empire in common worship. But few could visualize the dark spirit veiled behind the purple cloth, or that as "all things work together for the good of God's elect . . . the Lord raised up an ensign against the evil one," and used his wickedness to develop character manifest as faith in the saints of the Ephesian Church Age; Virtue (strength) in the Smyrnean Age, and Knowledge of God's unchanging Word by which to discern right from wrong in the saints of the Pergamean Church Age.
"God has not given us a spirit of cowardice, but of power and love and self-control. Do not be ashamed, therefore, of testifying of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner: but share my suffering for the Gospel in the power of God" (II Timothy 1:8). For the virtue displayed by the saints of the Thyatira Age was Temperance, which is self-control.
That should be instructive for all, since the false vine flourished in part because the celebrities and bigwigs who attended 'church' were ashamed to declare the whole counsel of God and stoop to spontaneous clapping and shouts of "amen," or staggering under the influence of the Spirit and associating with fishermen and tax collectors, converted prostitutes and plain common folk. Their hunger was for polite intercourse with 'respectable' society rather than the unadulterated Word of the hour. Like Cain, theirs was a social gospel without the Blood of the Lamb. How God confounds the wise and prudent with "foolish" things.
Jesus of Nazareth was born in a stable and was not received by this world. He said, "I am meek and lowly in heart." Some of the wonderful epistles in the Bible were written from behind bars in gloomy dungeons. But God has filled our hearts with His love and given us the Spirit of Adoption. How but in lowliness of mind, can we esteem the other better than ourselves and fulfill Paul's joy (Philippians 2: 1-5) that we be in one accord and one mind. Satan's intellectual polished Church trusts in science and corrupt theology, looking down on what God has sanctified and cleansed, but all members of the body of Christ are baptized by the same Holy Spirit and that is marvelous in our eyes.
Amidst great strife the True Church held to God's unchanging hand while the false church system trod faith underfoot. That woman Jezebel was seducing and causing people to commit spiritual fornication against God's Word and those who withstood the anti-Christ church were deemed heretics and destroyed. What Jezebel did not realize was that she and her children were being destroyed with Death.
Brother Branham said, "Everything that you see that's wrong, just do the opposite and you'll be right as unrighteousness is righteousness perverted." So while Satan's Roman church was killing Christians during the Dark Ages, God countered his dark force with another mighty cherub. The living creature that announced the Second Seal had the face of an Ox, which is a beast of burden and sacrifice. Its patient productive work would be the predominant feature of grace in the lives of God's people during the Dark Ages. No militant uprising, no political activism, but Temperance; no matter what the cost, the saints during this time lay down their lives for the Gospel. Grace enabled Christians in this Age to bear the burden of suffering unto death. Though they were persecuted, tortured, burned at stake, and fed to lions, their courage did not waver and they graciously surrendered their lives for the sake of the Word of God.
The believers Hall of Fame records the great exploits of faith of the Old Testament saints. Hebrew 11:35-37, "others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: and others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: they were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword".
Yet to the chagrin of their slayers they gloried in their martyrdom, "some through the water, some through the flood, some through the fire but all through the Blood." None recanted the faith or denied that lovely Name of Jesus. Hallelujah! As Jesus freely died for us they freely died for Him.
The Bible faithfully records who is responsible for this and the awful price that will be paid for touching God's anointed: "The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication".
Brother Branham said, "That antichrist spirit, fornication (See?) teaching, that committing adultery with God. See? Now, she's supposed to be a bride (See?), and committing adultery (See?); see just like Eve didjust like the church does there. See?"
"And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, (anybody knows Babylon is Rome) THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." (Listen to the sixth verse). "And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration."
"She was such a beautiful thing with crosses and everything on her; how in the world could she be the guilty of drinking the blood of the saints. It puzzled him. Now, He is going to tell him" (ibid, p. 218:1-4).
"All right. This rider and all his kingdom subjects that are slain down through the Age that's drawed all this blood of the martyrs of the saints will be slain by the sword of Jesus Christ when He comes. "They that take the sword will be slain by the sword." They took the sword of dogma and antichrist and cut down the real true worshippers all down through the ages by the millions, and when Christ comes with the Swordfor it is His Word that proceeds out of His mouthHe will slay every enemy there is before Him. You believe it" (ibid, p. 221:1; I Corinthians 15:25-28)?
The prophet made this wonderful statement just before ending that sermon:
"As the impostors against the Word of God, and because they wouldn't agree and this thing, Satan placed, united the political powers which he held and the spiritual powers which he held together and made a church that sweeps into every nation; and he's put millions times millions (after he had jumped off from his white horse onto his red horse), and he took his sword and went forth; but God said with the same thing that he perverted, or tried tothe false teachingthat same Word will rise in power, coming forth from the lips of Jesus Christ, and it shall slay him and everything before him. Amen. There's the Second Seal. Do you love Him? Oh, my. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD" (ibid p. 222:5)!!!
Read this Message of the Prophet friends, catch the revelation, search the Scriptures and hear the deep and passionate prayer at the close of this sermon when in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, the prophet commanded those who had not yet been filled with the Holy Ghost to fall to their knees and not to get up until the Holy Spirit had sanctified them thoroughly and filled them with His love and goodness and their souls were so satisfied in the Presence of God that their whole desire would be to serve Him and walk and work with Him all the rest of their lives.
May that prayer be the desire of your heart. God bless you. nl640.htm
