Bible Believers' Newsletter 645
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
Jesus forewarned us that Satan riding his sickly yellowish-green horse bears the name Death, "and Hell follows with him. And power was given to them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with war and with famine . . ." In several issues we have suggested households maintain a stock of nutritious non-perishable foodstuff sufficient for several months. The powers that be are spraying chemtrails throughout the world, altering weather patterns, releasing nanoparticles into the air we breathe, and in conjunction with scalar technology causing earthquakes, floods and droughts.
The politicians who claim to re-present our will are those who grant permission for this human experimentation. Our sole defense is the prayer of faith and prudent commonsense. The objective is World Depopulation and Slavery. The time is coming when you will not be able to call upon UN, NGO or local donor aid. Supermarket outlets no longer warehouse stock but rely on "just in time" computer programs to order from manufacturers and suppliers dependent on the same system. What you see on the supermarket shelves is almost their stock in hand; shelves are often restocked by the supplier. The once large stores of grain maintained for emergencies by the US and other countries no longer exist. The stage is set for death by famine, (more) war, disease and apostasy.
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.

Chemtrails over most of NATO this Summer Drought over Russia
August 6, 2010 Authorities have acknowledged that yields of the country's most significant crop, wheat, will drop dramatically this year. Russian grain producers have forecast a 20% drop in the nation's grain harvest, a dip that may force officials to cut back lucrative wheat exports by as much as half, from 18 million tons to 9.5 million.
Slimmed-down export forecasts for Russiaone of the world's biggest wheat exportershave sent global wheat prices soaring and proved a boon for American wheat suppliers, prompting at least one disgruntled Russian academic to speculate his country's heat wave had been masterminded by the Pentagon. Indeed, some of the temperatures have been so extreme it's easy to see why conspiracy theories about Western climate-tampering could readily gain currency. Siberian outposts that have recorded some of the world's coldest temperatures are now experiencing protracted bouts of 32-degree weather. In the central Kirov region, temperatures have edged towards a baking 50 degrees. . . "There are nearly 150 fires a day," said Igor Vlaznev, the head of a firefighting unit in the Voronezh region some 500 kilometers south of Moscow, in an interview with Reuters. "All of them are caused by dry grass, dry forests. The fires spread through villages, farms, agricultural fields." Full story: atimes.com
Comment: Throughout summer planes taking off from Munich airport have created chemtrail patterns all over Bavaria. They would even joke with observers by signing the end with an X. The day would begin with wonderful blue skies and in a few hours they would turn grey, and rain would start pouring down. To find blue skies, one would have to drive to the Czech Border where there was no spraying. Now the spraying has stoppedat least for the last two weeks!
In Northern California planes would take off near San Francisco and start spraying Marine County, and at the end of the each day sign the spraying with an X in the clouds!
Coincidence? Who would dream up a plan such as destroying crops and depriving the world of water? Only one country could do this if it is true. That country would be the USA which is run by Zionists in every branch of Government.
In other parts of the world there is drought: dead crops and no water. After being held hostage, Russia suddenly changed its tune and became a staunch ally of the United States and Europe in the City of London's "climate change" HOAX and IMF carbon tax SCAM. What about floods in Africa and Pakistan, and earthquakes in Chile and Haiti? Being helpless, the Third World is expendable in the drive for world depopulation.
Agenda 21: Paving the Road to Hell
'Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.'
This contract binds governments around the world to the United Nation's plan for controlling the way we live, eat, learn, move and communicateall under the noble banner of saving the earth. If fully implemented, Agenda 21 would have the government involved in every aspect of life of every human on earth.
'Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle classinvolving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, air-conditioning, and suburban housingare not sustainable. A shift is necessary which will require a vast strengthening of the multilateral system, including the United Nations.' Full story: youtube atomicnewsreview.org

NZ Submarine Volcano could Trigger Tsunami
August 16, 2010 Research by The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) has shown that the undersea volcano "Rumble III" on the Kermadec ridge 200 km north east of Auckland has dropped in height by 120 metres over the last 2 years. According to the Niwa website, Rumble III is one of more than 30 big submarine volcanoes on the Kermadec Arc. They form a jagged chain that ascends from the ocean floor, with Rumble III volcano larger than Mount Ruapehu. Marine geologist Richard Wysoczanski told the New Zealand Herald . . . that within the last ten years there have been numerous undersea volcanic eruptions and activity. He also said that these volcanoes as well as the non-volcanic ridges could cause landslides potentially generating a tsunami that could impact New Zealand.
Dr. Geoffrey Lamarche NIWA principal scientist said that their research shows the seabed is more active than was previously thought. "We don't want to be scaremongering here, but definitely any large displacement of (the) seafloor will pull the water down. At the surface it will also generate a wave, and this collapse, we know because we've mapped it, this collapse is looking south-west, which is directly toward the New Zealand coast," he told Radio New Zealand News.

Why WikiLeaks must be Protected
August 20 2010 Current propaganda is that WikiLeaks is "irresponsible." Earlier this year, before it released the cockpit video of an American Apache gunship killing 19 civilians in Iraq, including journalists and children, WikiLeaks sent people to Baghdad to find the families of the victims in order to prepare them. Prior to the release of last month's "Afghan War Logs," WikiLeaks wrote to the White House asking that it identify names that might draw reprisals. There was no reply. More than 15,000 files were withheld and these, says [founder Julian] Assange, will not be released until they have been scrutinized "line by line" so that names of those at risk can be deleted.
The pressure on Assange himself seems unrelenting. In his homeland, Australia, the shadow Foreign Minister, Julie Bishop, has said that if her right-wing coalition wins the general election on 21 August, "appropriate action" will be taken "if an Australian citizen has deliberately undertaken an activity that could put at risk the lives of Australian forces in Afghanistan or undermine our operations in any way." The Australian role in Afghanistan, effectively mercenary in the service of Washington, has produced two striking results: the massacre of five children in a village in Oruzgan province and the overwhelming disapproval of the majority of Australians. . .

New 'al Qaeda' Leader may be Israeli
There are no people hiding in Afghanistan planning these attacks. There are no terrorist leaders. No, Mullah Omar, the imaginary leader of the Taliban is not planning a major offensive against American troops or attacks on anyone. Even if he does have one of those encrypted Israeli satellite phones that the rest of the insurgents are using to defeat American signals intelligence operations, he is unlikely to be doing anything other than waiting.
America, along with the 'Karzai Incorporated' drug cartel has created a monstrous situation in Afghanistan. General Petraeus inherited a nightmare, 9 years of wrong direction, wrong country, wrong everything. Yes, there is corruption, evil. Yes, America is being victimized by violent men, planning the downfall of the United States.
We call them 'Congress.'
When something blows up, be it a dirty bomb in Cleveland, not too close to Shaker Heights, or a school in Little Rock, a 'branded' terrorist leader, one with a storybook background, Saudi born, evil extremist Muslim dad, will be dragged out. As with most of our phony terrorists, he will be a ghost, a Mossad agent like the dozens, maybe hundreds of violent Muslim terrorists they dress up and parade out when needed.
Simply put, there is no Islamic terrorist movement of any kind other than the groups promoting a just and peaceful settlement in Gaza, groups that strike back against Israeli violence, really Israeli terrorism. They have no reason to attack the United States. Millions in the United States support them. . .

The Sixth Seal
The Fourth and Fifth Seals close as the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial manifest, terminating the Gentile dispensation with an unprecedented convulsion of nature, sinking Los Angeles and a 1,500x300-400 mile segment of Earth's crust beneath the Pacific. Brother Branham prophesied, "It'll be worse than the last day of Pompeii." Lunar volcanics will turn the Moon to blood, the Pacific ring of fire will erupt; millions upon millions will perish in this worldwide upset of nature. "As it was in the days of Noah, the sea and the [tidal] waves will be roaring, [washing away parts of cities and breaking upon the shores], with men's hearts failing them for fear [of nuclear war]" (Luke 21:25-26). Martial law will be universal. The mount of Olives will cleave in two inciting the 'hot phase' of a brief World War III, sending multitudes of non-Semitic anti-Semitic so-called Israelis, not Israelites, scurrying home to Eastern Europe and calling the exodus of Israelites of the blood of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob from exile in the ancient Assyrian empire to the Homeland for their redemption (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 27:13; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 37:14; 39:27; Micah 5:3; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31; Revelation 12:14, etc.,). The Prophet said they will not escape from the United States (C.O.D. 97:234).
Cast down to Earth, Satan will evict his demons from the pope and incarnate himself in "that man of sin." And on the third day after the close of our dispensation following the pattern established by our Lord (Matthew 27:50-53), the resurrection of the Church Age saints will commence, witnessed by the saints of each succeeding Church Age while we who are alive and remain will testify the dreadful significance of the catastrophic phenomenon and the imperative of martyrdom to taking the mark of the beast in the forehead, which is to accept Rome's Trinity dogma, or in the right hand, which means to serve her (Revelation 13:15-18). Our speech in such straitened times when church agencies are doing "good" will visit revulsion, ostracism and official persecution upon the Bride and the foolish virgin, causing us to be hunted and persecuted. Brother Branham said if the Lord could create squirrels to shoot and eat at his command, He will restore missing limbs and other organs in the time of the 'squeeze.' His objective in providing for our needs by the 'third pull' is to endue us with faith for translation grace. After this short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit we will go to be with Jesus (Romans 8:19; I Thessalonians 4:16-17).
Once the Bride is translated, two Hebrew prophets anointed in the Spirit and power of Moses and Elijah will remind Israel of the promises of Moses and the prophets whence their forefathers fell, deceived by rabbis and blinded the carnal traditions of the Talmud, their perverse 'holy' book which makes God's unchanging Word of no effect (Matthew 15:1-9). This ministry will identify their place in prophecy and separate their elect from the world; then the revelation of their Seven Trumpet judgments over the past two thousand years will identify the prophecies in time. This will be "the time of Jacob's trouble" and the Lord will be dealing exclusively with 144,000 elect Israelites in Israel. Since He deals with Israel as a nation their relation applies only in the land of the Covenant, which is the place of their sabbath just as our relation and place of rest is recognized only in Christ (Isaiah 11:10; 66:1; Matthew 11:27-28-29).
Revelation 6:12-17, "When the Lamb opened the Sixth Seal I saw a great earthquake. The Sun became black as sackcloth, and the full-orbed Moon blood-red." Isaiah saw the end of man's day and the dawning of the great and dreadful day of the Lord when He "smites the Earth with a curse" (Isaiah 24; Malachi 4:6; Luke 21:25-26). What panic will seize terrified hearts when Israel's Seventh Trumpet sounds: the morning Sun will become black as sackcloth and the Moon blood-red as "Earth staggers like a drunken man and sways like a shanty in a storm" with volcanoes and universal earthquakes causing the stars to appear to be falling to Earth (Isaiah 24:20-23).
The shaking of these mutable things which are madethe heavens, the sea, and the dry landis the necessary removal of what may be shaken preliminary to setting up "a Kingdom that cannot be shaken" (Daniel 2:40-45; Hebrews 12:27-29). This earthquake introducing the Sixth Seal is identical with that which opens the Seventh Trumpet (Revelation 11:15-19) and the Seventh Vial (Revelation 8:5; 16:17-21). "This is the day of the Lord's vengeance, and the year of recompense for the controversy of Zion" (Isaiah 34:8). The Lord's anger is against all nations, and He will sacrifice the Edomites for their impersonation and slaughter of the Israelites. Most of Earth's inhabitants will have been blotted from the Book of Life at this time, placing them on par with the physical Serpent's seed whose names were never written. Their dead will be left unburied; the stench of their rotting flesh will fill the land, and the mountains shall flow with their blood (Ezekiel 39:11).
"When Jesus opened the Book of Isaiah, He found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the Gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [or Pentecostal Jubilee and release from the debt of sin]. And He closed the Book [in the middle of the verse], gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on Him. And He began to say to them, this day this Scripture is fulfilled in your ears." Had He continued to read He would have proclaimed "The day of vengeance of our God," which pertains to His second or 'parousia' Coming.
Brother Branham's Message "Proclaimed the day of vengeance of our God," and fulfilled Isaiah 61:2b. Let God bless your soul by hearing Birth Pains (65-0124) on-line. When the Prophet was delivering this Message to the Full Gospel Businessmen's Association in Phoenix he was unable find the text in his new Bible because as he would later discover, the gold leaf had stuck two pages together. And the eyes of everyone in the auditorium were fastened on Him as a Catholic priest stepped up to the pulpit and said, "Read it out of my Book," and prophesied: "This is God, and He will show you the reason why it was done, and show you what to bring out of this. It is wonderful." Now listen to This Day this Scripture is Fulfilled (65-0219) and witness the Supernatural realization of Scripture and the vindication of Luke 17:28-30the last sign Jesus promised before the end of the Gentile dispensation. His Message was sent to set you free from the tribulation judgment that will accompany Christ's 'parousia' Coming to Israel.
This day this Scripture is fulfilled in your ears.
The full Moon is the time of fertility, life and resurrection indicating this will be a morning watchapproximately 6.00am to 9.00am on Nisan 14, the day of preparation for the feast of Passover (Revelation 7:2; I Thessalonians 4:16; The Rapture, p. 26:127). As the Hebrew day is not regulated by the clock but like their months and religious festivals, by observation of the Sun and harvest, we cannot know "the day and hour . . . of the end of the world [systems or dispensations]" (Matthew 24:36, 3). Brother Branham said, "Though many may feel that this is an irresponsible statement in view of the fact that Jesus said that "no man knows the day or the hour," I still maintain this prediction after thirty years because, Jesus did NOT say no man could know the year, month or week in which His Coming was to be completed." The Prophet was speaking of the completion of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming which was first revealed to His end-time Bride and will be signified above the mount of Olives at Israel's Seventh Trump (Zechariah 14:3-9). While it seems certain that we will see and recognize their sign in the sky (Matthew 24:30), it will not be understood by the 144,000 elect Israelites until after the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week when Rome breaks her covenant with the Jewish Money Power and forces the mark of the beast; the Khazar Black Nobility will switch allegiance to Judaeo-Communist Russia and "the last and seventh vision [will be fulfilled] 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. 322:4).
Matthew 24:1-3 records three questions. Under the Fifth Seal (Matthew 24:9-13) Jesus said "You [Israelites] will be hated by all nations for My Name's sake." He outlined the Sixth Seal (Matthew 24:29-31) and proceeded to answer their third question, "What will be the sign of the end of the world [systems or dispensations]," in the parable of the Seventh Seal (Matthew 24:32-51), which prophesies Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel. "Learn a lesson from the fig tree [which signifies Israel]. As soon as her branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near. So also when you observe all these things, you know that summer [the day of Atonement and the feast of Tabernacles or ingathering of the last of the firstfruits of God's Spiritual harvest] is so near, the Son of man is even at the gates [as prophesied under the Sixth Seal (Matthew 29-31)]. I assure you; all these things will take place before the generation that sees the modern state of Israel restored can expire through old age. Heaven and earth will change, but My Words will not change. But no one knows that day and hour; neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son but My Father only".
Brother Branham said, "Laodicea goes into chaos; the Bride goes to glory; and the tribulation period sets in upon the sleeping virgin for three and a half years while Israel is getting its prophecy; then [after those three and a half years] tribulation sets in upon Israel; and then comes the battle of Armageddon which destroys all things. And then the Bride returns back with the Groom for a thousand years, the millennium reign; after that is the White Throne Judgment; and after that the new heavens and new earth and the new city coming down from God out of heaven. Eternity and time blends together" (C.O.D., p. 1160:Q392).
Revelation 6:13-17, "And the stars of heaven appeared to be falling to Earth, like green fruit from a fig tree buffeted by mighty winds. And the sky departed like a scroll when it is rolled together, and every mountain and island was dislodged. Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the rich men and the military generals and the rich and strong[the class of men who drank of the harlot's wine, and will mourn for Babylon (Revelation 18; Job 4:8)], and every impenitent soul, slave and free, hid in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, imploring the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the Presence of He who is seated on the Throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: for the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand [justified, and not condemned before the Judge after the Lord has exhausted all His ordinary judgments in man's daythe sword, famine, pestilence and those brutal, bestial men who rule this evil age, when still sinners are impenitent (John 3:18)]?"
"As Jesus departed the temple [on the afternoon of Tuesday April 4, AD30 and went His way], His disciples came to point out to Him the buildings of the temple. But He told them, do you not see all these things? I assure you, not one stone will be left here on another that will not be thrown down. [That evening] as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately and asked, 1) When shall these things [the destruction of the temple] be? 2) What will be the sign of your 'parousia' Coming, and 3) What will be the sign of the end of the world [or ages]?
Now we will confirm what we have taught on the Seven Seals of Revelation with what Jesus spoke regarding them in Matthew 24:
Revelation 6:1-2, "I saw when the Lamb opened the First Seal, and I heard one of the living creatures say with a voice like thunder, Come and see. And I looked, and saw a white horse: and its rider held a bow; and a [triple] crown was given to him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer".
The white horse rider is obviously not Christ since He has already conquered death, hell and the grave at His crucifixion and resurrection (I John 3:9, 14; Hebrews 2:14-15).
Matthew 24:4-5, "Jesus answered and said to His disciples, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in My Name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many." The white horse rider was the spirit of antichrist impersonating Christ and deceiving the people (John 5:43). Matthew's Gospel was directed towards Israelites, and under the First Seal the Church was composed primarily of Jewish and Israelite converts.
Revelation 6:3-4, "And when the Lamb opened the Second Seal, I heard the second living creature say, Come and see. And out came another horse that was red, and its rider was empowered to take peace from the Earth, so that people would kill one another: and a great sword was given to him".
Matthew 24:6, "You will hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that you be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet".
Revelation 6:5-6, "And when the Lamb opened the Third Seal, I heard the third living creature say, Come and see. And I looked, and saw a black horse; and its rider had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the living creatures say, a measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see you hurt not the oil and the wine".
Matthew 24:7, "For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places".
Revelation 6:7-8, "And when he had opened the Fourth Seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, Come and see. And I looked, and saw a yellowish-green horse. The name of his rider was Death, and Hell followed with him. And authority was granted them over the fourth [or worldly] part of the earth, [physical Serpent's seed descended from Cain through Canaan who were never written in the Book of Life (Revelation 12:7-13; 17:8), and the descendants of Shem, Ham or Japheth whose names will be removed as spiritual Serpent's seed when they worship or serve the Beast rather than yield their life in martyrdom (Revelation 13:8, 15-18)], to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with [spiritual] death, and with the beasts of the earth [metaphorically, the brutal, bestial men who rule this age]".
Matthew 24:7-8, "For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows." World War I was the beginning of sorrows, [or] First Woe".
Revelation 6:9-11, "And when the Lamb had opened the Fifth Seal, I saw beneath the brazen altar of sacrifice the souls of those who had been martyred for the Word of God, and for the witness they bore: and they cried with a loud voice, How long, O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, before you judge and avenge our blood on the inhabitants of the Earth? And white robes were given to each of them; and they were told to rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellowservants and of their brethren, predestinated to be martyred as they were, should be complete".
Matthew 24:9-13, "Then they will deliver you up to be persecuted, and they will martyr you: and you will be hated of all nations for My Name's sake. Many then will fall away, and betray one another, and hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. [Newsletter 484 names Jesus among twenty-five Jewish false messiahs]. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved." These victims are Israelites who have been martyred under the tribulation of the Fifth Seal which closes along with the Fourth Seal of our Spiritual redemption at the opening of the Sixth Seal. They are not elect but their names remain in the Book of Life so they retain their salvation and will be granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment.
In Luke 21:20-24 Jesus reverts to the first question and prophesies the 2,000-year chastisement of Israel's blindness under the Fifth Seal: "But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by [Roman] armies, be assured that her ruin is pending. Then those in Judaea must flee to the mountains, and those inside the city should escape, while those in the country should not enter Jerusalem. For these will be the days of vengeance in fulfillment of all that has been written" (Deuteronomy 28; Daniel 9:26). Even Titus said, "God was so angry with this people that He even feared His wrath if He should suffer grace to be shown to the Jews" and refused every mark of honour on account of the victory obtained, with the attestation he had been only an instrument in God's hands to punish this stiff-necked nation. Josephus rebuked the Judeans within Jerusalem and records that Titus killed 1,100,000 Jews and took 97,000 slaves (Wars of the Jews, V, 7.9).
"But woe to expectant mothers, and to those who are nursing children in those days! For terrible misery will be upon Earth [generally], and great wrath upon this people [especially]. They will fall by the edge of the sword and be carried off as prisoners to all nations. And Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled".
In Matthew 24:14 Jesus signifies the time of Israel's deliverance: "This Good News of the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations; and then the end will come." This refers us to Daniel 12:4, 9, Revelation 10:1-11 and I Corinthians 13:10 for the "time of the end" was when the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to Earth in W_O_R_D form, and His end-time Bride "must again prophesy [the apostolic faith that has been restored plus the end-time Message] before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings" (Revelation 22:17-19).
This points to the time of Israel's deliverance and to our Home-coming. Jesus said the generation that saw the modern state of Israel established will not expire through old age before the Sixth Seal is fulfilled (Matthew 24:34), and we go Home seven years before that. Standing in downtown Los Angeles, Brother Branham said to his eldest son, "Billy, I may not be here, but you won't be an old man until sharks will swim right where you are standing" (Pearry Green, The Acts of the Prophet, p. 119). Billy Paul Branham who was born on September 13, 1935 like the youngest Israelite at the age of accountability when the nation of Israel was reborn, and will be 75 this year.
Matthew 24:14-15, "This Good News of the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations; and then the end will come. Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso reads the prophecy [of Daniel 9:24-27] let him understand)".
In the early days of the Fifth Seal before the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple: "the abomination of desolation . . . standing where it ought not" (Mark 13:14) was the pennants of the Roman legions bearing the insignia of a red dragon rising over the temple from the mount of Olives, signifying that the holy place had fallen under the dominion of idolaters. The prophecy of Daniel 9:26 foretold "the people of the prince [Titus] that will come [after the death of Messiah] will overflow and destroy the city and the sanctuary as by a flood, and there will be warfare to the end" (Daniel 7:19-26).
On the other hand, Brother Branham points us to the end of the Fifth Seal and the opening of the Sixth Seal as he applies "the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet" to the Dome of the Rock. But Mohammed was not born until about AD570 and es Sakhra, which stands in place of the temple, was not dedicated until AD692. However, its destruction by the earthquake that cleaves the mount of Olives will commence "the time of Jacob's trouble" and ignite the 'hot stage' of World War III, enabling "a [peace-making] papal Roman prince to confirm a covenant with the Jews for one week," which he will abrogate after three and a half years at the dedication of the new "abomination of desolation" proposed by David ben Gurion, a "UN shrine of the prophets [presumably including Mohammed, Joseph Smith, Herbert W. Armstrong, Benjamin Creme and others] to serve the federated union of all continents" (Isaiah 14:12-14; I Thessalonians 2:3-4; Daniel 9:27; Revelation 11:3-7; 12:14; 13:5).
Revelation 6:12-17, "When the Lamb opened the Sixth Seal I saw a great earthquake. The Sun became black as sackcloth, and the full Moon became blood-red. And the stars of heaven appeared to be falling to Earth, like green fruit from a fig tree buffeted by mighty winds. And the sky departed like a scroll when it is rolled together, and every mountain and island was dislodged. Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the rich men and the military generals and the rich and strong, and every impenitent soul, both slave and free, hid in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, imploring the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the Presence of He who is seated on the Throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: for the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand"?
Matthew 24:29-31, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days [of the Fifth Seal] the Sun will be darkened, and the Moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of man will appear in the sky: and all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels [two Hebrew prophets anointed with the Spirit that endued Moses and Elijah] with a great sound of Israel's Seventh Trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect [144,000 Israelites] from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other".
The Gentile dispensation closes at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal of Israel's redemption, therefore at this time we are not considering the tribulation of the apostolic and Church Age saints, the imminent persecution of Christ's end-time Bride or the persecution and martyrdom of the foolish virgin in the coming great tribulation. We are "the eagles gathered around the Body-Word" by the call of the living creature with the face of an eagle having recognized the 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man signified to us by this Supernatural Pillar of Cloud that appeared over Arizona on February 28, 1963 (Matthew 24:27-28). And at the opening of this Seal we will be waiting in anticipation of operating the 'third pull' to manifest that we are the Sons of God.
A comparable "sign of the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven" will herald Christ's 'parousia' to Israel. This will NOT be His physical return as the Son of David, which cannot take place until after the consummation of life on Earth when He returns with the glorified saints of all Ages to step out on the atomic ashes of the wicked for a thousand years of peace (Isaiah 13:6-11; Daniel 2:44; Zephaniah 3:8; Malachi 4:1-3; Matthew 3:12; Revelation 19:20-21; 20:10). Like the sign of His 'parousia' Coming to us, these will not be atmospheric clouds but a theophany of the Presence of the Lord in clouds of glory placing judgment on the mount of Olives (Ezekiel 43:2; Zechariah 14:4; Revelation 7:2).
These things have to transpire before Jesus can "restore the kingdom to Israel" in the millennium as David's Greater Son (Acts 1:6; Daniel 9:24). The resurrection of the sleeping Church Age saints, the manifestation of the Sons of God in "we who are alive and remain" and our resurrection, will take us all to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the Sky within fifty days of Los Angeles sinking, and two prophets will be anointed to minister to Israel as a nation. According to Scriptures quoted in the first paragraph, it will be after our translation that Jacob returns to the Promised Land. The type in Genesis 32 tells us that on returning from forty years of exile in Syria Jacob had to confront his apostate Brother Esau from whom he purchased his birthright for the price of a bowl of soup, and stole his blessing by deceiving their father.
Genesis 27:34-36, "When Esau learned that his brother Jacob had impersonated him and stolen his blessing, he cried bitterly, and implored, Bless me, me also, O my father. And Isaac said: Your brother came with subtlety, and has taken away your blessing. And Esau said, No wonder they call him Supplanter, for he has cheated me these two times: he robbed me of my birthright; and now he has stolen my blessing. Oh, haven't you saved even one blessing for me"?
"Isaac answered: I have made him your master, and given him yourself and all of his kinfolk for servants. I have guaranteed him abundance of grain and wineand what is there left to give to you, my son? And Esau said to his father, Have you not one blessing left for me, O my father. And Esau wept."
"Then Isaac responded: Yours will be no life of ease and luxury; your dwelling shall be away from the fatness of the earth and the dew of heaven on high. By your sword you will live, and you shall serve your brother; but when you strenuously exert your power, you will break his yoke from your neck."
"And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father had blessed him, and said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I kill my brother Jacob".
On his first return Jacob divided his servants into separate parties and sent them ahead in stages with his livestock as a present in order to buy Esau's favour. Finally he sent his wives, his concubines and his eleven children while he remained at the ford Jabbok, which means "emptying." There he wrestled face to face with the Angel of the Lord until dawn, and the Lord blessed him and changed his name from Jacob, meaning "supplanter," to Israel, which means "a prince with God."
Esau married two Serpent's seed women and produced the nation of Edom which John Hyrcanus defeated in about 130BC and assimilated with Judea. Thus Edom "broke Israel's yoke from his neck" through the curse of 'multiculturalism' and miscegenation as he has broken the yoke of Adam's race in our generation. Edomites rule Israel and the colonies and occupied territories of the 'City of London' today, and indeed the rest of the world by the power of the purse.
Prophetically, the Sixth Seal is "the time of Jacob's trouble." Jeremiah 30:2-9, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, I will return the captivity of My people Israel and Judah, and bring them back to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it. These are the Words that the Lord spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah. For THUS SAITH THE LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, there is terror, and no peace. Ask now and see, can a man bear a child? Why then do I see every man with his hands on his loins as a woman in travail? Why has every face turned pale? Alas! That day is great; there is none like it. It is the time of Jacob's trouble; yet he shall be saved out of it. And it shall come to pass in that day, says the Lord of hosts, that I will break the yoke from off their neck, and I will burst their bonds (Isaiah 61:2b), and strangers [Heb. 'Zuwr,' Serpent's seed] shall no more make servants of them. But they shall serve the Lord their God and David their King, whom I will raise up for them".
Jeremiah was prophesying the return of the blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Israel to the Land of the Covenant under the Sixth Seal in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. Once again Jacob/Israel must confront Esau/Edom, for we reap what we sow, and as Jacob impersonated his brother Esau and stole his blessing, now Esau as Edom impersonates Jacob, calling himself a Jew, an Israeli and "God's chosen people," having stolen the land of Palestine with which Isaac blessed Jacob (Genesis 27:26-29). And whereas Jacob's kin were to serve him, Edomite Jews despise Semitic Israelites and mistreat them as they do Semitic Palestinians and all non-Jews whom they regard as animals G_d created in human form to serve so-called Jews.
This time those who call themselves Jews will seek to buy favour with the Edomite Judaeo-Roman Catholic church which calls itself Christian, but which the Talmud regards a synonym for Edom. God has allowed Esau/Edom, "the people against whom the Lord has indignation forever" (Malachi 1:4) to raise up Judaeo-Communism to destroy the Judaeo-Roman church, which is His enemy and the enemy of Israel. Brother Branham said, "The church system of the Roman Catholic and 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 the privilege of buying or selling whereby they would make a living. This will be accomplished very 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 [i.e. fiat money and credit created out of thin air]. 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 [Edomite] Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance, and the harlot church will take over the whole world" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 314:1).
"With this great power the church systems will persecute the true Bride. This image will try to keep the Bride from preaching and teaching, etc. Her ministers will be forbidden to give comfort and truth to the people who need it. But before the antichrist (in person) takes over this complete world system of churches the true Church will be taken away from this world to be with the Lord. God will catch away His Bride for the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb. . . And so on and on went that spirit and one day it will become truly incarnate in a man who will head up the World Council of Churches, just as we have been saying. And by his gold (remember Judas held the bag) he will control the whole world, and that antichrist system will own everything and try to control everybody. But Jesus will come back and destroy them all with the brightness of His coming. And their end will be the lake of Fire" (ibid. p. 377; 379).
While Rome rules, the 144,000 elect true Israelites will wrestle with the Message of the two angels of Matthew 24:31 until they catch the revelation. Revelation 11:3-6, "I will grant My two witnesses power to prophesy for one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the Earth (Zechariah 4). And if anyone wants to hurt them, Fire of the 'third pull' of God's spoken Word issues out of their mouths and consumes their enemies. Should any one wish to injure them, he must killed in that way. These two have power to shut the sky, so that no rain may fall in the days of their prophecy; they also have power over waters, to turn them into blood, and to smite the earth with every plague, as often as they will".
Theirs will be the antitype of the ministry of Moses who delivered Israel out from Egyptian bondage under the plagues of darkness, lice, frogs, and so-on, and Elijah who will stop the heavens so that there was no rain for the three and a half years of their prophecy. So the foolish virgin had better store up food for this long drought; these plagues are not those of the Seven Trumpets, Seven Seals or the Seven Vials which have been manifesting since Calvary and are fulfilled but for the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet, Third Woe and Seventh Vial. They are plagues to be pronounced on the Gentiles by the 'third pull' of Israel's prophets throughout their three and a half year ministry while for the elect "[Israel's spiritual] desert shall rejoice, and blossom as a rose . . . behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God; He will come and save you. Then the eyes of the [spiritually] blind will be opened, and the ears of the [spiritually] deaf unstopped. Then the [spiritual] cripple shall leap like a hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing, because waters [of revelation] shall break out in the wilderness, and streams in the desert. . . a highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The Way of Holiness. On the one hand, nothing unclean shall pass over it; but on the other, the most simple of Israel's 144,000 will not lose their way . . . No lion will lurk along its course, nor will there be any other dangers; but the redeemed shall walk there: and the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion (Revelation 14:3; 15:3-4) and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads: they shall obtain comfort and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away" (Isaiah 35:4-10; 61:2-4).
As it was in the days of Moses there will arise a pharaoh who does not know Joseph, a type of Christ. The usurper in the White House with big Mouseket-ears is his image as seen in Joe Brandt's spiritual dreams. But Daniel and Brother Branham refer to another, "in the middle of the week . . . the antichrist . . . (What is he? A pope, a prince amongst the people) that is to come. . . There'll rise up a Pharaoh who doesn't know Joseph" (The Seventy Weeks of Daniel, p. 124:166; Daniel 9:27). "The antichrist is growing now through politics. He's already got to the White House. In religion, he's got all the people so scrupled up till actually they'd fall right for it. And the denominational leaders . . . practically every church that there is in the nation is already in the confederation of churches. Ramses is growing, and they're all uniting together, and that's what they'll have. And what does it do? It makes a power, a beast just like the first one. Then there's a persecution coming upon all those who won't unite with it, and a boycott. It'll be too late then; you've already took the mark. Don't say, "I'll do it then." You better do it now. Ramses was growing" (The Third Exodus, p. 24:5-7).
Daniel 11:45 12:1, "He shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the sea [of Galilee and the Mediterranean Sea] in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him. And at that time [in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth week] Michael [who is Jesus Christ] will stand up, the great prince who stands for the children of your people: and there will be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time your people will be delivered, every one that is found written in the Book".
Revelation 12:14-17, "The woman [Israel] were given two wings of a great eagle [in allusion to Exodus 19:4 and Isaiah 40:30-31], that she might fly from the presence of the Serpent [whose controlled conflict of the 'hot stage' of World War III between political Zion and political Islam has made her formerly secure home in the ancient Assyrian empire no longer tenable, and as multitudes of her enemy Esau/Edom have abandoned Israel and fled to Eastern Europe she need not continue her 2,500-years exile "for fear of the Jews" and returns] to the wilderness [of pagan modern Israel which "is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt" (Revelation 11:8)], into the land of her Covenant, where she is nourished [by the ministry of her "Moses" and "Elijah"] for a time, and times, and half a time [the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week]. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood [multitudes of troops] after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood."
[Brother Branham said, "For three and one-half years while the retributive wrath of God is poured out, the Bride will be in the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Then will He return [by revelation], leaving His Bride in "His Father's house," while He makes Himself known to His brethren. At this very time, the antichrist covenant that the Jews have made with Rome will be broken. Rome and her allies then send their troops to destroy all the God-fearing, Word-abiding Jews. But as they come against the city to destroy it, there will appear in the heavens the sign of the Coming of the Son of man with His mighty armies to destroy them who have been destroying the earth. With the enemy repulsed, Jesus then comes and presents Himself [by revelation of His 'parousia'] to the 144,000. Having seen His mighty acts of salvation, they have come to know His power. But also seeing His wounds and knowing that they had rejected Him even to that moment, causes them to cry out in the agony of terror and fear, even as did their brethren of old when they stood before Joseph, being sore afraid that they would be killed. But as Joseph said, "Don't be angry with yourselves. It is all right. God was in it all. He did it to preserve life." Even so will Jesus speak peace and love to them" (ibid. p. 41)].
"And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth [the earthquake of Revelation 11:13 and Isaiah 29:6]. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God [the 144,000 elect Israelites], and have the testimony of Jesus Christ [the foolish virgin]".
Under the Sixth Seal the foolish virgin are purged of their sins of unbelief in the Message. The 144,000 elect Israelites will be purged, and the whole of nature will purge itself prior to the millennium. The third question the disciples asked Jesus was, "What will be the sign of the end of the world"? The sign of the end of the world or world system was the restoration of the nation state of Israel in the Promised Land. The manifestation of the Sixth Seal will end the world systems. nl645.htm
