Ancient Books Date to the Start of Christianity
March 30, 2011 One of the largest and best-preserved collections of ancient sealed books has been discovered in a cave in Jordan . . . 70 tiny books could date back to the first century. Carbon dating tests found that a piece of leather with the scrolls was over 2,000 years old. Experts say the books, made of lead and copper and bound by rings, may be more significant than the Dead Sea Scrolls. . . the cover on this book depicts Jesus with a crown of thorns upon his head that would be the earliest known image of our Lord. Archeologists in Israel claim the books are forgeries, while British archeologists are committed to saving and studying the ancient scrolls. . . Full story: dailymail.co.uk
April 03, 2011 A few weeks ago, Mr. Ahmadinejad's office screened The Coming is Near which describes current events in the Middle East as a prelude to the arrival of the mythical twelfth Imam or Mahdithe messianic figure Islamic scriptures say will lead the armies of Islam to victory over all non-Muslims in the last days.
The video claims that Iran is destined to rise as a great power in the last days to help defeat America and Israel and usher in the return of the Mahdi. And it makes clear the Iranians believe that time is fast approaching.
"The Hadiths have clearly described the events and the various transformations of countries in the Middle East and also that of Iran in the age of the coming," said a narrator, who went on to say that America's invasion of Iraq was foretold by Islamic scriptureand that the Mahdi will one day soon rule the world from Iraq. . . the video says Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will conquer Jerusalem prior to the Mahdi's coming.

Comment: Someone will conquer Jerusalem (Zechariah 14:2); however the Mahdi has been present since 1963: His Name is Lord Jesus Christ.
The Euro-US War on Libya: Official Lies and Misconceptions of Critics
March 29, 2011 The bombing of Libya has already destroyed major civilian infrastructure, airports, roads, seaports and communication centers, as well as 'military' targets. The blockade of Libya and military attacks have driven out scores of multi-national corporations and led to the mass exodus of hundreds of thousands of Asian, Eastern European, Sub-Saharan African, Middle Eastern and North African skilled and unskilled immigrant workers and specialists of all types, devastating the economy and creating, virtually overnight, massive unemployment, bread-lines and critical gasoline shortages. . . The current imperial warmongers leading the attack on Libya, just like their predecessors, are not engaged in anything remotely resembling a humanitarian mission: they are destroying the fundamental basis of the civilian lives they claim to be saving. . .
The anti-Gaddafi force's lack of any democratic credentials and mass support is evident in their reliance on foreign imperial armed forces to bring them to power and their subservience to imperial demands. Their abuse and persecution of immigrant workers from Asia, Turkey and especially sub-Sahara Africa, as well as black Libyan citizens, is well documented in the international press. Their brutal treatment of black Libyans, falsely accused of being Gaddafi's 'mercenaries,' includes torture, mutilation and horrific executions, does not auger well for the advent of a new democratic order, or even the revival of an economy, which has been dependent on immigrant labor, let alone a unified country with national institutions and a national economy.
The greatest geographical concentration of suspected terrorists with links to Al Qaeda just happens to be in the areas dominated by the 'rebels' (see Alexander Cockburn: Counterpunch, March 24, 2011). For over a decade Gaddafi has been in the forefront of the fight against Al Qaeda. . . These jihadist Libyans, having honed their skills in US-occupied Iraq and Afghanistan, are now among the ranks of the 'rebels' fighting the much more secular Libyan government. Likewise, the tribal chiefs, fundamentalist clerics and monarchists in the East have been active in a 'holy war' against Gaddafi welcoming arms and air support from the Anglo-French-US 'crusaders'. . .

Comment: Libya, which is believed to be Gaddafi's military dictatorship is actually the most democratic state in the world. There, in 1977, Jamahiriya was proclaimed the highest form of democracy in which the traditional institutions of government are abolished, and all power belongs to the people directly and through the people's committees and people's congresses. . .

Libya's Blood for Oil: the Vampire War
April 2, 2011 Last October, US oil giantsChevron and Occidental Petroleummade a surprising decision to pull out of Libya. . . About July, I started hearing that Gaddafi was exerting heavy pressure on US and British oil companies to cough up special fees and kick backs to cover the costs of Libya's reimbursement to the families of Pan Am 103. . . Gaddafi took on the role of a modern-day Robin Hood, who insisted on replenishing his people for the costs they'd suffered under UN sanctions. . . The decision to free Megrahi followed shocking revelations of corruption at the special Court of The Hague that handled the Lockerbie Trial. Prosecution witnesses confessed to receiving payments of $4 million each from the United States, in exchange for testimony against Megrahi, a mind-blowing allegation of judicial corruption.
The CIA had established a protected drug route from Lebanon to Europe and on to the United States. . . On the day it was blown out of the sky, Pan Am 103 was carrying that team of CIA and FBI investigators, the CIA's Deputy Chief assigned to Beirut, and three Defense Intelligence officers, including McKee and Gannon, on their way to Washington to deliver a report on the CIA's role in heroin trafficking, and the impact on terrorist financing and the hostage crisis. In short, everyone with direct knowledge of CIA kickbacks from heroin trafficking died on Pan Am 103. A suitcase packed with $500,000 worth of heroin was found in the wreckage. It belonged to investigators, as proof of the corruption. . .

David Cameron's Gift of War and Racism, to Them and Us
April 7, 2011 President Barack Obama's historical distinction is now guaranteed. He is America's first black president to invade Africa. His assault on Libya is run by the US Africa Command, which was set up in 2007 to secure the continent's lucrative natural resources from Africa's impoverished people and the rapidly spreading commercial influence of China. Libya, along with Angola and Nigeria, is China's principal source of oil. As American, British and French planes currently incinerate both "bad" and "good" Libyans, the evacuation of 30,000 Chinese workers is under way, perhaps permanently. Statements by Western officials and media that a "deranged and criminal Colonel Qaddafi" is planning "genocide" against his own people still await evidence. This is reminiscent of fraudulent claims that required "humanitarian intervention" in Kosovo, the final dismemberment of Yugoslavia and the establishment of the biggest US military base in Europe.
The detail is also familiar. The Libyan "pro-democracy rebels" are reportedly commanded by Colonel Khalifa Haftar who, according to a study by the US Jamestown Foundation, set up the Libyan National Army in 1988 "with strong backing from the Central Intelligence Agency [CIA]." For the past 20 years, Colonel Haftar has been living not far from Langley, Virginia, home of the CIA, which also provides him with a training camp. The Mujihadeen, which produced al-Qaeda, and the Iraqi National Congress, which scripted the Bush/Blair lies about Iraq, were sponsored in the same time-honored way, in leafy Langley. . .

Open letter to Messrs. Obama, Cameron, Sarkozy
March 28, 2011 The United Nations Organization had planned, this month, to pay homage to Muammar Al-Qathafi for his human rights record, after a carefully researched report was drawn up, praising him for his tremendous humanitarian work not only in his own country but across the African continent, where he is much respected.
Now a question. If a group of carefully trained heavily armed citizens seized power, burnt buildings, massacred civilians and destroyed government property in, say, Texas, Northern Ireland or Corsica, what would the authorities of your countries do? Stand back with their hands over their hearts or meet the challenge with armed security forces? You do know who started the massacres in Benghazi?
Another question. Where did all those former Libyan flags come from? Were they lying around somewhere in Libya for the last half-century or were they manufactured overseas, as was the Libyan "Revolution"?
Actually, a series of questions. Did you know that Muammar Al-Qathafi inherited the poorest country on Earth and turned it into the best in Africa in human development indices? Are you aware of the tremendous amount of good Muammar Al-Qathafi has done and continues to do across the African continent? . . Full story: pravda.ru americanfreepress.net
Pakistan drops US, embraces China as New Arms Partner
March 28, 2011 Pakistan is now "backing away" from the US, its long-time strategic arms partner . . . "The US no longer fully supports the military ambitions of a Pakistan that is being destabilized by an insurgency it cannot control, rising radicalism and anti-westernism, and a government considered by some too weak and corrupt," it said.
"That led Pakistan to replace the US with China as a main source of defense material, at least in terms of arsenal, development and training". . . Full story: indiatimes.com
Comment: The most vital aspect of this new strategic agreement is that the Chinese military now has access to the Karakoram Highway in confrontation with the West and its air force in NATO member Turkey, with whom it has been conducting joint air defense exercises since last year.
Soros convenes 'Bretton Woods II'
Internationalist billionaire George Soros is holding his international conference April 8 to April 11 at Bretton Woods, N.H., the noted birthplace of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, where he plans to "rearrange the entire financial order," as he noted in a November 2009 article in The Japan Times Online. . . "Reorganizing the world order will need to extend beyond the financial system". . .
Soros is saying that a washed-up America should be replaced by a world government with a global currency under UN rule. He also advocates that China should be top dog while we play second fiddle. What Soros doesn't say is that two decades of outsourcing US industry, opening the borders and bankrupting the economy with pointless wars and other debacles have been intentionally orchestrated so that now international bankers can tell the world the system is broken and that the individuals who broke it need to show us how to fix it.
Georgy Schwartz, aka George Soros, is a Hungarian Jew who has been described as anti-God, anti-family and anti-American. By his own admission he even helped confiscate the homes of fellow Jews in Hungary in 1944.
In an interview with Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes he said 1944 was the best year of his life. Asked by Kroft if he felt any remorse, he answered, 'No, not at all; I rather enjoyed it.'
'No feelings of guilt?' asked Kroft. 'No,' answered Soros, 'only feelings of power.'
Soros made his first billion as a currency speculator in 1992 by shorting the British pound and causing misery to millions of hardworking British citizens. He went on to cause the 1999 Russiagate scandal, almost collapsing the Russian economy. It was described as 'one of the greatest social robberies in human history.'
He did the same to Thailand and Malaysia in 1997, causing the Asian financial crisis of that time. Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad called him 'a villain and a moron,' while Thailand's PM referred to him as 'Dracula.' He also helped dismantle Yugoslavia and caused major trouble in Japan, Indonesia, Georgia, Ukraine and Burma by raiding their economies.
He also fosters cultural degeneracy by supporting abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, feminism, gun control, globalization, mass immigration, gay marriage etc. Soros funded Barack Obama's campaign and often visits the White House. At 81, taking down America appears to be his final challenge. "The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States. The time has come for a very serious adjustment," he said.

The Jewish Circumcision of Civilization
By John Kaminski
Total hypocrisy rules a coalition of predator states as comatose Americans watch the dastardly genocide, rape and pillage of Libya, and the people who support it are disgusting. Name me one world leader who has done more for his own people than Muammar Gaddafi. Maybe you can come up with one or twolike Aung San Suu Kyi or Hugo Chavezbut I doubt it. Hypocritical skunks on the Internet say we have to protect the Libyan people, when the Mossad and CIA hired African mercenaries to foment this "revolution" in the first place. Simultaneously Israel's Stuxnet virus is about to kill tens of millions of people. Anybody who believes the lying propaganda of US, UK and Australian government-sanctioned 'news' reports is immoral and delusional, [fulfilling II Thessalonians 2:11].
And anybody who hasn't yet realized that Jewish financial power has utterly destroyed and prostituted every government on this planet is either a raving idiot or a paid liar. Yes, I'm talking to you, my gutless, immoral and drug-dependent compatriots.
The invasion of Libya is disgusting. If a truly moral republic that the USA has always claimed to be were to rescue an oppressed Arab people, it would first be the people of Palestine, who are routinely murdered and debauched by insane Israeli Jews; then it would be the people of Yemen, whose leader recently ordered his Blackwater mercenary troops to shoot his protesting citizens in the head. And they did so.
But the US isn't about to rescue anyone except Jewish banksters who have stolen all of its money and taken it to Israel, trillions at a time. Besides, it's too busy following Jewish orders and savaging ordinary people in Muslim countries to have time to reverse its policy and actually help Muslim people in Libyano, it's a lie. The Muslims who really needed help were the ones on the Freedom Flotilla to Gaza, where Israel shot one Turkish teenager four times in the head while he was lying wounded on the deck of the Mavi Marmara, not to mention those being rapidly exterminated in their evaporating country of Palestine.
Countries the Jewish-controlled USA plans to destroy are countries that are trying to look after their own people instead of the interests of the bankers. According to retired [Jewish] General Wesley Clark: "As I went back through the Pentagon in November 2001, one of the senior military staff officers had time for a chat. Yes, we were still on track for going against Iraq, he said. But there was more. This was being discussed as part of a five-year campaign plan, he said, and there were a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan (Winning Modern Wars, p. 130).
As I said on numerous occasions in 2005-06 while being interviewed on Iranian TV, it doesn't matter who the US president is, the Americans will always have the same plan for the Muslim world, which is its annihilation. This attitude will continue as long as Jews control the US, and they undeniably do.
[Wilfully blind as prophesied (Titus 3:9-11; Revelation 3:17-20)], rank and file citizens cannot see that Jewish money and media have totally locked down the Western world into contrived triviality and endless aggression against and exploitation of the less-twisted people of the world. Predator society. It's Jewish. And it has no heart. Those who are not Jewish but ascribe to its pathological principles are responsible for this Jewish circumcision of civilization, which even now shortens our lives as we watch for the new weather forecasts of cesium, iodine and xenon.
Because their consciousness is dulled by television, Jewish sabotage of school curricula, fluoride, radiation, vaccines, white flour, multiculturalism, (dual citizen) robot politicians and other demented social experiments, the American people have no clue that they should want to seenever mind to finally understandthe most important political and social meme in human history that would disclose the cause of all the wars and diseases inflicted on the world then covered up in each generation by those who write history to please the victors.
Funny thing about that. The people with the most money almost always won the war. From time immemorial (and here comes the hard part), it has always been the same people who, number one, control the crime. The ancient Greek god Hermes was the god of businessmen and the god of thieves. The philosophers say the world is run by force, and this is the problem. Humanity has not yet really agreed to be civilized, which gives states the right to suppress individuality in the name of security, and this is precisely what has crushed the humanity out of us.
I was thinking the other day that, really, the countries which built the most respected nations of our time were Germany and Japan. Germany, for its academic genius and productive spirit, and Japan for its marvelously respectful culture and technological expertise. Perhaps two countries have suffered the greatest destruction in the twentieth century. Japan by continuing nuclear devastation generated by the same insane warmongers, once from above, and once through cyberspace. And Germany, obliterated first from within, then from above, and now reviled throughout the world for crimes they never committed. Hitler never wanted to conquer the world, he was only terrified of the Russians because he knew they were the same Jews who had thrown his country into chaos. Hitler failed to realize until it was too late that Russia was not his only Jewish peril; the US and Britain were, and continue to be the most disgusting components of the Jewish monster, for their lack of moral certitude enables them to emulate and adopt the pathological customs of these monstrous wandering Mongolian killers.
The most important meme:
Dark as these days seem, screwing this light bulb into your panel of interior lights may yet save the world. In fact, it is an essential stepthat cannot be done withoutfor humanity as we know it (or as we used to know it) to have any future at all.
In fiftylet's see, I had my first front page newspaper byline in 1957, when I was in the seventh grade; I did my first newspaper in 1954, at the age of 9, in pencil, with a banner headline of "H-bomb tests in Pacific"so that would be 57 years. In 57 years of practicing journalism, this is the most important piece of information I have discovered. This is without question the most important meme on the road to peace, the most important component of any thought process whose aim is an honest world. (Another gift from Brother Anthony).
The Symbolic Snake of Judaism [is continuing The Trail of the Serpent].
Protocol III opens with a reference to the Symbolic Snake of Judaism. In his Epilogue to the 1905 Edition of the Protocols, Sergei Nilus gives the following interesting account of this symbol:
"According to the records of secret Jewish Zionism, Solomon and other Jewish learned men already, in 929BC, thought out a scheme in theory for a peaceful conquest of the whole universe by Zion. As history developed, this scheme was worked out in detail and completed by men who were subsequently initiated in this question.
"These learned men decided by peaceful means to conquer the world for Zion with the slyness of the Symbolic Snake, whose head was to represent those who have been initiated into the plans of the Jewish administration, and the body of the Snake to represent the Jewish peoplethe administration was always kept secret, EVEN FROM THE JEWISH NATION ITSELF.
"As this Snake penetrated into the hearts of the nations which it encountered it undermined and devoured all the non-Jewish power of these States. It is foretold that the Snake has still to finish its work, strictly adhering to the designed plan, until the course which it has to run is closed by the return of its head to Zion and until, by this means, the Snake has completed its round of Europe, and has encircled itand until, by dint of enchaining Europe, it has encompassed the whole world. This it is to accomplish by using every endeavor to subdue the other countries by an ECONOMICAL CONQUEST.
"The return of the head of the Snake to Zion can only be accomplished after the power of all the Sovereigns of Europe has been laid low, that is to say, when by means of economic crises and wholesale destruction effected everywhere, there shall have been brought about a spiritual demoralization and a moral corruption, chiefly with the assistance of Jewish women masquerading as French, Italians, etc. These are the surest spreaders of licentiousness into the lives of the leading men at the heads of nations.
"A map of the course of the Symbolic Snake is shown as follows:
• Its first stage in Europe was in 429BC in Greece, where, about the time of Percales, the Snake first started eating into the power of that country.
• The second stage was in Rome in the time of Augustus, about 69BC.
• The third in Madrid in the time of Charles V, in AD1552.
• The fourth in Paris about 1790, in the time of Louis XVI.
• The fifth in London from 1814 onwards (after the downfall of Napoleon).
• The sixth in Berlin in 1871 after the Franco-Prussian war.
• The seventh in St. Petersburg, over which is drawn the head of the Snake under the date of 1881.
[This "Snake" is now being drawn through the Americas and in the United States of America, it has been partially identified as the "Council on Foreign Relations" (CFR) and the "Trilateral Commission"].
All these States which the Snake traversed have had the foundations of their constitutions shaken, Germany, with its apparent power, forming no exception to the rule. In economic conditions, England and Germany are spared, but only till the conquest of Russia is accomplished by the Snake, on which at present [i.e., 1905] all its efforts are concentrated. The further course of the Snake is not shown on this map, but arrows indicate its next movement towards Moscow, Kiev and Odessa. It is now well known to us to what extent the latter cities form the centres of the militant Jewish race. Constantinople is shown as the last stage of the Snake's course before it reaches Jerusalem. (This map was drawn years before the occurrence of the "Young Turk"i.e., JewishRevolution in Turkey).
Since Sergei Nilus revealed the Protocols in 1905, many additions to this list can be added to account for the encircling of this same snake over the entire corpus (or perhaps "corpse") of human endeavor. In fact, I think this list is about to go fractal, like Google maps.
The symbolic snake of Judaism in the last hundred years:
1. Federal reserve, income tax, buying of senators, 1913
2. World War I, 1914-18
3. Great agricultural depression (where the banks stole all the farms), 1921
4. Great Depression, 1929, federal bankruptcy, 1933.
5. World War II, 1939-45
6. Korean War, 1950-53
7. Vietnam War, 1954-75
8. Iraq war, 1990-2011
9. Afghanistan war 2001-2011
10. Scalar tectonic attack on Japan, designed to destroy US and Europe, 2011.
Notice none of these wars actually benefited Americans.
The trail of the symbolic snake of Judaism in the last twenty years.
1. Ruby Ridge, 1991
2. WTC1, 1993
3. Oklahoma City, 1995
4. WTC2, 2001
5. Afghanistan, shock and awe in Iraq, 2003
6. Induced Indonesia tsunami, 2004
7. London, Madrid, Mombassa, Bali false flag blasts, 2004-07
8. Final financial looting of US, 2008
9. Gulf of Mexico oil volcano (precursor to and facilitator of New Madrid quake fault?), 2010.
10. HAARPing of earthquake fault off coast of Japan, tsunami, six nuke plant meltdowns because of Israeli Stuxnet virus, guaranteed illness for Northern Hemisphere in perpetuity, 2011.
And, progress of the symbolic snake in the last ten minutes:
1. Tokyo is radioactive; 30 million people are displaced and/or permanently poisoned, and worse, not welcome anywhere else for fear of contamination. Amid predictions the main island is about to fall into the sea, the Japanese are condemned to an agonizingly slow and inevitably painful death, plus a quarantine on all their products for the foreseeable future. Radiation is seeping into the Pacific and likely will kill or mutate everything in it.
2. Amid government pronouncements there are no fallout worries in America, intrepid Internet sleuths track European sites for the dispersion of carcinogenic clouds manipulated by HAARP weather controllers over densely populated US urban areas. The population control team has unsheathed an effective new corpse collector.
3. After taking the precaution of destroying crop production in all the world's major farming areas in 2010, the stage is set for mass starvation and general anarchy (and subsequent slaughter) all over America in 2011 once the supply lines are broken by a HAARP engineered "natural" disaster.
4. Headline just received: Radiation reaches Tampa Bay. I know it sounds facetious to say, but I can feel it in the air; I have for a couple of days. There's a sweetness to the humidity and a dryness in the throat that wasn't there before.
5. Much of the Islamic world is in danger of being slaughtered outright in the next weeks, if not from all out war, then from the continuing destabilization policies emanating from Israel and being carried out by their deranged hitmen, the American military.
6. Henning Kemner's recent video pointed out that the purpose of the Gulf of Mexico disaster was not an oil spill, but an excuse to lubricate the tectonic foot of the New Madrid fault and facilitate an earthquake. According to Dutchsinse, HAARP cones are being used to destabilize a 120 degree triangle along the Mississippi River near Memphis to achieve the same end.
7. Since 1913, Jewish bankers have taken 50 percent of American productivity off the top by their Federal Reserve scam. With new taxes, non profits, and derivatives, the Jewish ripoff of the American economy is well over 100 percent, they have robbed us of trillions of dollar well into the bank accounts of unborn generations. George Washington and Benjamin Franklin warned us about these guys, but we didn't listen.
[As another contributing author, Paul Craig Roberts explains in Stealing from Social Security to Pay for Wars and Bailouts, current war costs presented are seldom exposed in detail. . . present or recent wars of the past decade were enacted by internal American Zionist Jews who have been filtered into government and out to think tanks. . . this is still going on . . . but their main purpose, the Project for the New American Century study led by Cheney, (Khayney), outlined their mission to get the US militarily involved in the Middle East . . . thereby providing cover and security for their Jewish kinsmen occupying Palestine. . .
Therein lies the principle reason for what is going on, but contingent with this mission, is the Talmudic goal of the eventual despoliation of (once) Christian America . . . to see Judaism rise to final success and power as prophesied of Gog who will lead Judaeo-Communist Russia, vaporize Rome and North America, thence to the consummation of life].
8. There is a government-industry health fixing scheme that robs us of our wealth as it destroys our health.
9. All the religious leaders in the world are meaningless whores to the Jewish bankers.
10. You're going to die an awful death because of all this, but especially because of your failure to adequately see what is going on.
Comment: Despite an abundance of irrefutable testimony recorded worldwide on audio, in the press, still and movie film covering more than thirty years of a ministry that fulfilled prophecies of Scripture recorded over a six thousand-year period, John Kaminski has yet to discover that if you "KNOW the Truth [by faith, which is understanding], the Truth will set you FREE" (John 8:32). It will release you from the bondage of sin (unbelief), psychology and all chains that bind you to this earth, so that you will "adequately see what is going on," and at the conclusion of the manifestation of the Sons of God following the end of the Gentile dispensation you will be translated.
God sent the prophet William Branham to reveal Jesus Christ, restore the apostolic faith, finish the mystery of God and call His people to maturity in the unity of the faith to ensure the saints of this day will NOT see death in the flesh but change in the atoms.
Mudslide shuts down Hwy 101 in Humboldt County
March 30, 2011 A major artery through southern Humboldt County was shut down Wednesday following a massive slide of mud and rocks, the California Highway Patrol said. Officials estimated that the stretch of Highway 101 could be closed for up to two weeks. Crews may be able to open the section to one-way, controlled traffic in two to three days. . . "The whole mountain came down and just took the 101 out," Johnson said, describing the large cracks in the road. "It looked like an earthquake". . . Full story: nctimes.com
Before the Earthquake: San Francisco, 1906
A camera was mounted on the front of a streetcar in San Francisco 105 years ago (1906) to shoot what is perhaps the oldest "home movie" you will ever see! Look at the hats the ladies were wearing and their long dresses. Some of the cars were right-hand drive, and horse-drawn vehicles were still in use. It seems everybody had the right of way and mass transit was the way to get around.
At about thirty-three seconds and immediately after an oncoming trolley clears the screen, a smartly-dressed policeman crosses the street from left to right. He holds a twenty six-inch truncheon and although he appears to be walking his beat he looks ready to use it. Imagine police of today walking down the street with such a weapon!
From New York papers announcing the film showing to matching weather conditions on historical record with the streets wet from heavy rainfall and shadows indicating the time of year, to when the cars were registered, the identity of their owners and when the plates were issued, David Kiehn from the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum figured out this film was shot just four days before the Great California Earthquake of April 18, 1906 and shipped by train to NY for processing. The number of automobiles is staggering for 1906. The clock tower at the end of Market Street at the Embarcadero wharf is still there. Full story: youtube.com
Sudden Destruction will come as Birthpangs
By Jonathan Gray
Today there are two Babylons: one is the Judaeo-Roman Catholic Vatican City (Revelation 17:1 18:20), while the second is Hollywood, Jewry's mind-manipulating 'dream factory' that has perverted the morals of Gentiles with lewd filth (Revelation 18:21-23). The first will be 'atomized' by Judaeo-Communist Gog, the land of Magog, the Czar of Meshech and Tubal, whereas earthquakes will hurl the second into the abyss:
Revelation 18:21-23, "A mighty angel took up a boulder shaped like a millstone, and cast it into the sea with the words, 'With such violence shall Babylon, the great city, be hurled down and disappear forever. And the voice of harpists and musicians, of flute players, and trumpeters, shall be heard in you no more; neither shall an artisan of any craft be found in you any more; nor shall the grinding of a millstone be heard in you any longer. And no light of a lamp shall shine in you any more, nor shall the voices of the Bridegroom and His Bride be heard in you any more. For your leading men were earth's most prominent; and all nations were deceived by the drugs of your magical arts. In her, too, was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and all who have been slaughtered on the earth'."
That "mighty angel" was Brother Branham: "I left here [Branham Tabernacle in Jeffersonville, Indiana] by a vision to go yonder to Tucson to see what the Lord wanted me to do. There He met me up there, as He told you here [in my sermon, "Is this the Time of the End, Sir" on December 30, 1962] that He would do it, and the form of seven angels, and said to return back and the Seven Seals was to be opened. That's just exactly what happened [on March 8, 1963]."
[On March 25, 1964] He said, one day with Brother Wood when he come out there, we went to the same place [Sunset mountain], and "throw up a rock," it come down. He said, "Within a day and night, you're . . . going to see the glory of God. And the next day [March 26, 1964] a whirlwind came down out of the skies, and we know the story of what taken place. When it went up, they asked what it was. I said, "It spoke three words, in three great blasts." The men only heard the blasting. I understood what it said. And said, "Judgment striking West Coast." Two days after that, Alaska like to have sunk. It's been thundering around, earthquakes, everything. Just look at them, every day earthquakes just shaking everywhere. . ."
Since that earthquake, there is a two or three-inch crack that come in the earth, starting in Alaska, goes around through the Aleutian Islands, comes out about a hundred and fifty or two hundred miles in the sea, comes back up at San Diego; takes in California, or Los Angeles, and comes out again just below the northern part of California there, a little place called San Jose, just below there" (Ashamed, p. 7:44-47, 53).
At the Lord's command the Prophet spoke this 9.2 magnitude Good Friday earthquakethe most powerful in America's history in token of a vastly more powerful Good Friday earthquake that will sink Los Angeles at the close of the Gentile dispensation.
In the 1930's Brother Branham prophesied the sinking of Los Angeles and California: "The time would come (it's written in a book somewhere) that the sea would weep its way into the desert." Look what'll take place. If that thousands of square miles falls down into the lava of the earth and slides in, there'll be millions die at one time. And that'll cause such a tidal wave. . . Remember, plumb up into the Salton Sea is a hundred or two hundred feet lower than the sea level. That water will probably come almost to Tucson with that tidal wave coming across there. And the sea shall weep its way into the desert" (Trying to do God a Service without His Will, p. 6:25).
Message believers will be familiar with the time Danny Henry prophesied over Brother Branham in French at a Full Gospel Business Men's breakfast on February 11, 1961. I have a vision shown to him in 1957, Danny Henry saw the sinking of Los Angeles and much of California. The visions of others agree with the Message of God's prophet (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:17) as Jesus described to John in Revelation 16:17-21:
"When Brother Branham pours out the Seventh Vial into the air [or fourth dimension over which Satan is Czar or chief ruler]; a mighty shout from the throne of the Temple in heaven will declare: "The seven plagues of the Church Age Messengers are fulfilled, the first resurrection can begin" (Revelation 15:8). Then there will be flashes of lightning, rumblings of thunder, and a massive earthquake of a magnitude unprecedented in human history. And the great city [Jerusalem] will be divided into three parts (Zechariah 13:7 12:2), and the cities of the Gentiles will fall: and great Babylon [Rome] will come in remembrance before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. Every island will flee away, the mountains will not be found (Revelation 6:14); great hailstones weighing a hundred pounds will fall from the sky upon people: and men will curse God for this fearsome plague of hail" (Revelation 11:19).
The devastation of California and diverse places of the world will be SUDDEN, preceded by convulsions in the heavens when Satan and his angels are cast down (Revelation 12:7-13). This catastrophic earthquake will mark His first step on earth, and when this comes to pass all men, with the exception of 144,000 elect Israelites, will find no place of repentance, for the marriage of the Lamb will have come to pass and the door to the Wedding Supper will be shut (Matthew 25:10; Revelation 19:7). The time to repent is NOW Editor.
"We're going to CRASH"! The lady screamed. Too late to repent! I looked out, recalls Jonathan Gray: on both sides of the plane steep Andean mountains pressed ominously close. It seemed any second the wingtips of our DC3 would scrape.
Next to me a Peruvian man looked about to faint. My stomach was in the back of my throat. It was no comfort to know (a) this ancient aircraft was a 'cast-off' from some defunct South American airline and (b), that crashes were not uncommon in these parts.
I was now gasping for breath. The Peruvian lay back, his eyes shut tighthis knuckles white as he gripped the arm rest. A rocky spur raced toward us. The plane dipped its wing; oxygen masks dropped down. I ravenously grabbed mine and sucked in deeply. Two miles above us high in the clouds stretched Lake Titicaca . . . and a Pacific seaport that had been SUDDENLY thrust 12,000 feet above sea level. Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world. But did you know that 4,000 years ago Titicaca was on sea level?
It is commonly believed that mountain uplifts occurred over millions of years, until about a million years ago, but eminent geologist Bailey Willis said, "The great [Asian] mountain chains challenge credulity by their extreme youth" (Research in Asia. II, p. 24).
Seashells on the former surf line of the beaches at Valparaiso, Chile, now raised to an elevation of 1,300 feet, have not even decayeda clear indication of 'recent' upthrust.
Geologist J.S. Lee reports convincing evidence that "the mountain ranges in western China have been elevated since the Glacial Age" (The Geology of China, p. 207). And in Kashmir, Helmut de Terra found deposits of a sea bottom at an elevation of 5,000 feet or more, and tilted at an angle of 40 degrees. And the shock is that: "These deposits contain paleolithic ['Old Stone Age'] fossils" (Arnold Heim and August Gousser, The Throne of the Gods, An Account of the First Swiss Expedition to the Himalayas, p. 218).
The fact is that this change occurred in historical times, however fantastic changes so extensive may seem to a modern geologist.
Citing extensive evidence, Immanuel Velikovsky concluded that "the great massif of the Himalayas rose to its present height in the age of modern, actually historical man. . . With their topmost peaks the mountains have shattered the entire scheme of the geology of the 'long, long ago'" (Earth in Upheaval, p. 76).
A shock indeed! It can be demonstrated that the mountain chains of the Caucasus, China, Tibet, the Rockies, the Alps and the Andes all rose to their present heights in historical times. We have the same 'late' dating from all parts of the earth.
At 11,500 feet, a curious whitish streak composed of the calcified remains of marine plants runs along the side of the Andes mountain range for over 300 miles. This shows that these slopes were once part of the seashore, in fact, many lakes up in the Andes contain saltwater. One such lake is Titicaca, straddling the border between Bolivia and Peru. A watermark of salt along the lake shore now runs at an angle to the water level. Originally it must have been horizontal, so clearly the land was not only thrust up to its present altitude, but was tilted in the process.
Not only is the water saline. On the beach of this lake high in the mountains, there are seashells as well as traces of seaweed. The lake must have been a bay or inlet of the sea. Even today, various sea creatures (including sea horses) survive in the lake. And although this lofty, almost sterile region is capable of sustaining only a scant population today, we are confronted with a colossal mystery, traces of a huge city lie at the southern side of the lake.
In the fifteenth century, Spanish conquistador Cieca de Leon reported his astonishment at seeing ancient pivoted gateways hewn from solid stone 30 feet long and 15 feet high in the extensive ruins of Tiahuanaco, Bolivia. Obviously once a great city. But here is the mystery. At an altitude of 13,000 feet, maize will not bear fruit. Yet endless agricultural terraces, now abandoned, rise as high as 18,400 feet above sea level, and continue up under the snow to some unidentified altitude. Such abundant cornfields must once have supported a huge population, but the region is too high and too barren to do so now.
Could the site once have been lower? You see, if the Andes were 2 to 3,000 feet lower than it is today, maize would ripen around Lake Titicaca and the city of Tiahuanaco could support the large population for which it was evidently built.
But here is an even greater surprise . . . the remains of an ocean quay. That's right, an ocean quay. This suggests that the city, when built, was at sea level12,500 feet below its present altitude! Remains near the stadium of Tiahuanaco show five distinct landing places, harbours with moles and a canal which heads inland. The docks are vastand one wharf is big enough to take hundreds of ships. So we're confronted by a sea harbour at an altitude of 12,500 feet and 200 miles inland! Staggering, isn't it?
Well, someone says, perhaps these gigantic docks were intended for ships on Lake Titicaca. Good try. But I'll tell you why not. You see, they face in the opposite direction from the lake. Not only that, the mooring rings on the stone piers were so large that they could only have been used by ocean-liner sized vessels. This place, I tell you, was a seaport on the Pacific coast. And it was thrust, so to speak, two miles into the sky! Now, how about that?
You've probably heard it said that mountain building took 'long ages.' That in the case of the Andes (the second highest mountain range on earth), it occurred more than a million years ago. Well, I'm sorry to be a spoil sport. But the change in altitude occurred AFTER the city was built. I would suggest about 4,000 years ago. And since only a few intermediate surf lines can be detected, the elevation could not have proceeded little by little, but was SUDDEN!
Explorer Colonel H.P. Fawcett, who traveled this region early last century, was persuaded by the evidence Tiahuanaco had been destroyed by the terrible seismic upheavals which accompanied the raising of the Andes to their present height (Exploration Fawcett: The Travel Diaries and Notes of Colonel H.P. Fawcett). And I believe he got that right.
There is some evidence that the monoliths of the city were not entirely finished when the catastrophe struck, SUDDENLY raising the whole city and lake 12,500 feet. Cast-down builders' tools were found in the ruins when the Spaniards came upon the place in the 16th century. The heaps of blocks of worked stone bear evidence of sudden abandonment . . . men fleeing for their lives, taken by surprise.
After the disaster, the populace lay buried in gullies that became mass graves, covered by silt. Fragments of skeletons, both of animals and men, lay scattered among the ruins. Jewels, pottery and tools were found mixed in utmost confusion. This massive uplifting exposed a continental shelf which is now the desert lowlands of Peru and northern Chile.
In the traditions of the Ugha Mongulala tribe of the western Amazon jungle, the South American continent was ". . . still flat and soft like a lamb's back, . . . the Great River still flowed on either side." But then came a cataclysm: "The Great River was rent by a new mountain range and now it flowed swiftly toward the East. Enormous forests grew on its banks... In the West, where giant mountains had surged up, people froze in the bitter cold of the high altitudes" (Karl Brugger, The Chronicle of Akakor, 1977).
Upswellings of other mountains may have been as violent. These were never forgotten by the inhabitants. For example, the Washo Indians of California say their ancestors witnessed the uplifting of the North American sierras from the plains. Other tribes of the Americas likewise recall in their oral history the memory of new mountains being raised and others flattened (Velikovsky, Worlds in Collision, p. 102).
After the Great Flood of 2345BC, it took the earth's crust millennia to settle down. During the tectonic adjustments, lava continued to flow. Isolated areas of land were submerged or raised thousands of feet. Today these effects are being felt only to a comparatively minor degree. Still, it should be mentioned that even in modern times, the ocean has been known to raise or lower its islands or its depths, as much as thousands of feet. No need to invoke long evolutionary periods.
There are many recent examples of rapid up or down thrusts. During the earthquake which occurred off the northern tip of Sumatra on December 26, 2004, the sea bottom in the Straits of Malacca uplifted almost 4,000 feet in only about three minutes. The US-based National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, which analyses spy satellite imagery and produces maps and charts for the Defense Department, was reported to have received information that one area of the Straits of Malacca, which separates Malaysia from the Indonesian island of Sumatra had its depth cut from 4,060 feet to 105 feet.
In another affected area, a merchant marine ship logged that the depth was cut from 3,855 feet to just 92 feet (Star, Kuala Lumpur, January. 13, 2005, quoting a report in the shipping journal Portsworld).
The US Navy reportedly sent two ships to re-chart the waters. Sonar images from British navy ship HMS Scott showed the massive uplift of a large area 10 kilometers wide and up to 1.5 kilometers high (4,800 feet plus). Yes, land can rise or sink quickly . . . even in our day. It does NOT require millions of years.
Revelation, repentance with the remission of past sins and new birth likewise does not require millions of years, but heartfelt sincerity and firm resolve. Acts 2:41, "Those who gladly received Peter's Word were baptized: and the same day about three thousand souls were SUDDENLY added to the Kingdom of God." So Paul admonished, "Today if you will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end". nl680.htm
