Annotated Bilderberg 2012 Member List
June 3, 2012 The 2012 members list released by the Bilderbergers is most remarkable for what it does not mention. . . Full story: vidrebel.wordpress.com
Comment: Well worth reading, with interesting, informative, sometimes ironic annotations, such as:
On September 11, 2001 we saw 2 buildings hit by planes but 3 buildings fell down including WTC 7, a 47 story building, which collapsed 22 minutes after it was announced by BBC. The Rothschild owned Reuters had told the BBC that the building had collapsed. The UK had just gone off Summer Time but America was still on Daylight Savings time so there was a temporary time difference. Go to YouTube and type in WTC 7 BBC. The longest version will show the collapse. Look at it for the first time. Note that the windows did not melt. Glass melts at 800 degrees Fahrenheit (426.66 degrees Celsius). WTC 7 collapses in 6.5 seconds meaning that all of the steel girders melted at 2,200 degrees on all 47 floors at the same time but that none of the windows melted. Sounds like a controlled demolition to me. There were 110 stories each in the Twin Towers with 183 Steel girders making contact on every floor. That is 2 x 110 x 283 for a total of 62,260 connection points between the girders and the floors. Do you believe there was a fire so intense that all 62,260 steel connections melted in less than 2 seconds but there was not enough heat to melt the windows? And while we are at it, what explosive force was required to blow up 500,000 tons (453,592,400 kilograms) of reinforced concrete and turn it into dust in 2 seconds? 911 was a controlled demolition. And everyone with a brain at Bilderberg knows this and does not care.
Houla Massacre: Opposition Terrorists 'killed Families loyal to Government'
June 1, 2012 The report is based on a chronology of events as well as eyewitness accounts. Entire pro-government families in Houla were massacred. The terrorists integrated by professional mercenaries were not pro-government militia as conveyed in chorus by the mainstream media, they were in large part mercenaries and professional killers operating under the auspices of the self-proclaimed Free Syrian Army (FSA): "When the rebels seized the lower checkpoint in the center of town and located next to the local police department, they began to sweep all the families loyal to the authorities in neighboring houses, including the elderly, women and children. Several families of the Al-Sayed were killed, including 20 young children and the family of the Abdul Razak. The people were killed with knives and shot at point blank range. Then they presented the murdered to the UN and the international community as victims of bombings by the Syrian army, something that was not verified by any marks on their bodies". . .

Comment: The US has welcomed the formation of an umbrella group of Syrian opposition figures, the self-proclaimed Syrian National Council. Ahmed Ramadan (Aspen Institute/Middle East Strategy Group chaired by former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and Madeleine Albright, etc.), (Bilderberger and NATO agent) Bassma Kodmani (Ford Foundation, Carnegie Middle East Center etc.), and Abdulbaset Seida (Hudson Institute, Chatham House, RIIA, IISS, etc.) speak as a group of Syrian opposition members [representing US/ NATO interests] (thenakedfacts.blogspot.com.au). The perpetrators of this and other false flag massacres in Syria are Britain's MI6, America's CIA, and Israel's MOSSAD, the Syrian military is innocent.
The White House Secret Kill List
June 7, 2012 "The leader of the government regularly sits down with his senior generals and spies and advisers and reviews a list of the people they want him to authorize their agents to kill. They do this every Tuesday morning when the leader is in town. The leader once condemned any practice even close to this, but now relishes the killing because he has convinced himself that it is a sane and sterile way to keep his country safe and himself in power. The leader, who is running for re-election, even invited his campaign manager to join the group that decides whom to kill.
"This is not from a work of fiction, and it is not describing a series of events in the Kremlin or Beijing or Pyongyang. It is a fair summary of a 6,000-word investigative report in The New York Times earlier this week about the White House of Barack Obama . . . the former lecturer in constitutional law and liberal senator who railed against torture and Gitmo now weekly reviews a secret kill list, personally decides who should be killed and then dispatches killers all over the worldand some of his killers have killed Americans.
"We have known for some time that President Obama is waging a private war. By that I mean he is using the CIA on his ownand not the military after congressional authorizationto fire drones at thousands of persons in foreign lands, usually while they are riding in a car or a truck. He has done this both with the consent and over the objection of the governments of the countries in which he has killed. He doesn't want to talk about this, but he doesn't deny it. How chilling is it that David Axelrodthe president's campaign managerhas periodically seen the secret kill list? Might this be to keep the killings politically correct?" . . .

Israeli Company has FAA Permission to Fly Drones in US Airspace!
May 15, 2012 The Israeli company Stark Aerospace of Mississippi is not so much from Mississippi as it is from Israel. Stark Aerospace of Mississippi is a subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries! And the Federal Aviation Administration has given them permission to fly their drones in American airspace! Israel started its drone program with a contract in July of 1970 with the American company Teledyne Ryan. Since then it has moved to making its own drones which it uses to wage war with its neighbors as well as to keep Palestinians suppressed and under Jewish control. While being employed to control the Palestinians Israeli drones have been used in the direct killings of Palestinian children in Gaza.
The US government promotes the use of drones to state and local governments. Already many state and local authorities have purchased drones for surveillance. As if this isn't bad enough, some are thinking of arming them. With US politicians being so subservient to Israel and looking to the Jewish state for the advancement of their sickening and evil political careers, it isn't surprising that American policy is mimicking Israeli policy. . . This is the two-year-old Palestinian child pictured above after an Israeli drone attack. What is in store for Americans who resist Israel running our country? . . .

Pentagon Consolidates Control over Balkans
May 30, 2012 NATO and the wars waged under its command, not only in the Balkans but in Afghanistan and all but officially in Iraq, have provided the Pentagon the mammoth Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo and three major air bases in Bulgaria and Romania as well as headquarters for new military task forces and jumping-off points for "downrange" operations outside Europe. The US Department of Defense has also acquired subservient legionaries for wars in Asia and Africa and training grounds for American and multinational expeditionary units employed in 21st century neo-colonial wars far beyond the Euro-Atlantic area. Romania will host 24 US Standard Missile-3 interceptors starting in three years. . .
"US Army Europe is uniquely positioned to advance American strategic interests across Eurasia, building teams, assuring allies and deterring enemies. The relationships we build during more than 1,000 theater security cooperation events in more than 40 countries each year lead directly to support for US actions such as in Kosovo, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya."
This year NATO officially identified Afghanistan and Iraq as military partners, in the category of partners across the globe. Since the end of NATO operations against Libya last October, the bloc's secretary general and its American ambassador, Anders Fogh Rasmussen and Ivo Daalder, have mentioned Libya joining NATO's Mediterranean Dialogue military partnership with the other nations of North Africa.
Each NATO military operation over the past 17 years, in Bosnia, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Libya, has provided the alliance with bases, centers, troops and logistics for later and for future wars. Air bases in Bulgaria and Romania were employed for the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya and, as noted above, every Balkan nation but Serbia has supplied troops for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Pentagon and NATO military personnel, aircraft, ships and radar in Southeast Europe can be used in attacks on Syria and Iran and in any new armed conflict in the South Caucasus, such as the five-day war between Georgia and Russia four years ago.
The US and its NATO allies are expanding their military presence and infrastructure ever closer to new theaters of war. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

New Book confirms US-Australia plans for War on China
June 4, 2012 A newly published book by journalist David Uren has revealed that the Australian government's 2009 Defence White Paper contained a "secret chapter" that assessed "Australia's ability to fight an air-sea battle alongside the United States against China."
The chapter was omitted from the public version as it contained references to Australian forces assisting the US military to impose a naval blockade of China's trade routes, and likely Chinese retaliation against targets on Australian soil. The existence of the confidential chapter was prominently reported on the front page of the Australian newspaper, Saturday, under the headline "Secret 'War' with China Uncovered." Labor's Defence Minister Stephen Smith was questioned about the revelation on Sunday. While he attempted to dismiss as "nonsense" the report that Australia had plans for war with China, he confirmed that there were both public and secret versions of the White Paper.
Uren, the economics editor of the Australian newspaper, provides no source for his revelation. His book, however, The Kingdom and the Quarry: China, Australia, Fear and Greed, has clearly been written in close consultation with figures in the Australian political, military and diplomatic establishment. It is primarily a discussion of the immense dilemma that confronts the Australian ruling elites as the United Statestheir key strategic and military allypursues an ever more aggressive stance toward China, Australia's largest trading partner. . .

Comment: Which Jewish bankster funds the Trotskyite World Socialist Website? The 'City of London' directs our foreign policy and their CIA keeps our politicians in line as witnessed in the sacking of Prime Ministers Whitlam and Rudd and Holt's 'disappearance.' Following the Jeffersonian principle "Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nationsentangling alliances with none," Australia should manage her own destiny under God.
Wall Street and London intend to go all the way to Moscow and Beijing via Syria and Iran.
The Afghan Drug Trade: a Threat to Russia and US-Russian Relations
May 23, 2012 Washington serves the interest of western oil companies, not just because of their corrupt influence over the administration, but because the survival of the current US petro-economy depends on western domination of the global oil trade. A passage in Drugs, Oil, and War describes this policy, and how it has contributed to recent American interventions, and also the impoverishment of the Third World since 1980. In essence, the US handled the quadrupling of oil prices in the 1970s by arranging, by means of secret agreements with the Saudis, for the recycling of petrodollars back into the US economy. The first of these deals assured a special and on-going Saudi stake in the health of the US dollar; the second secured continuing Saudi support for the pricing of all OPEC oil in dollars. These two deals assured that the US economy would not be impoverished by OPEC oil price hikes. The heaviest burdens would be borne instead by the economies of less developed countries.
The US dollar, weakening as it is, still depends largely on the OPEC policy of demanding US dollars for payment of OPEC oil. Just how strongly America will enforce this OPEC policy can be seen by the fate of those countries that have chosen to challenge it. "Saddam Hussein in 2000 insisted Iraq's oil be sold for euros, a political move, but one that improved Iraq's recent earnings thanks to the rise in the value of the euro against the dollar." Three years later, in March 2003, America invaded Iraq. Two months after that, on May 22, 2003, Bush by executive order decreed that Iraqi oil sales would be returned from euros to dollars.
Shortly before the 2011 NATO intervention in Libya, Qaddafi, according to a Russian article, initiated a movement, like Saddam Hussein's, to refuse the dollar for oil payments. Meanwhile Iran, in February 2009, announced it had "completely stopped conducting oil transactions in US dollars." The full consequences of Iran's daring move have yet to be seen.
I repeat: every recent US and NATO intervention has served to prop up the waning dominance of western oil companies over the global oil and petrodollar system. But I believe that oil companies themselves are capable of initiating or at least contributing to political interventions. As I say in my book . . . hegemonic hawks (principally in the CIA and Pentagon, like William Casey, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld) who have pushed for a US strategy of unipolar global domination . . . have not hesitated to use drug-trafficking assets in pursuit of this unattainable goal, notably in Indochina, Colombia, and now Afghanistan.
Significantly, the hawks have used the drug eradication strategies of the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) as well... The true purpose of most of these campaigns . . . has not been the hopeless ideal of eradication. It has been to alter market share: to target specific enemies and thus ensure that the drug traffic remains under the control of those traffickers who are allies of the Colombian state security apparatus and/or the CIA. This has been conspicuously true in Afghanistan, where the US recruited former drug traffickers to join in its 2001 invasion. Later the US announced a drug reduction strategy that was explicitly limited to attacking those drug traffickers supporting the insurgents . . .

Holy Holohoax. My Government wouldn't lie to Me.
April 21, 2012 The Red Cross had unrestricted access each month to every German concentration camp including Auschwitz. They had inside men who reported to them in detail the activities at the camps. In a November 22, 1944 letter to US State Department officials, the Red Cross said: "We had not been able to discover any trace of installations for exterminating civilian prisoners. This corroborates a report which we had already received from other sources . . ."
The Germans captured 150,000 British soldiers. 150 of those men were engineers who worked at Auschwitz-Birkenau to maintain the manufacturing plants that processed Silesian coal to make gasoline for the German Army. The Germans were using a coal gasification formula developed in 1915 in Russia. These 150 men obviously had daily access throughout the camps but to date neither a Nuremberg prosecutor nor a Holohoax researcher has cited their testimony. I wonder why?
'Evidence' of Nazis making soap and lampshades from Jews used to convict Germans at Nuremberg has been withdrawn from the Holohoax museums at Auschwitz and Jerusalem.
Dr. Charles Larson headed a team of forensic pathologists sent into the camps at the end of the war to document war crimes. They conducted hundreds of autopsies at more than twenty camps; they did not find a single body showing signs of gas poisoning. None have been found since, at any camp.
No Zyklon B was found in the alleged gas chambers at Auschwitz, Birkenau and Treblinka when tests were conducted in 1991 by the Polish government under the close supervision of the Jewish museum curator. The Nazis supposedly tossed Zyklon, a commercial insecticide used for disinfection into the camps, to kill the Jews. The problem with this scenario is that a surreptitious video interview with the Director of the Auschwitz Museum revealed to the world that the chutes were installed by the Russians after the war.
The Encyclopedia Britannica in its 1963 edition states that 2,000,000 people, mostly Jews, were exterminated by the Nazis in Mauthausen, a concentration camp in Austria. This absurd figure has been officially revised quite a lot. Now it is claimed that only 95,000 people died in Mauthausen, of which only 14,000 were Jews. An exaggeration of 1,905,000! After WWII a plaque memorialized the deaths of 4,000,000 at Auschwitz. The plaque was replaced by one that reduced the total number of deaths to 1,500,000. But the six million total for Jewish victims of the Holohoax was not affected. A 1,905,000 reduction from Mauthausen plus a 2,500,000 reduction from Auschwitz did not change the total of 6 million. In 1990 the Auschwitz State Museum officially revised the death toll from 4,000,000 down to 1.1 million, of which 960,000 are claimed to be Jews. Russia released old Soviet files taken from Auschwitz further reduced the total deaths at that camp to 69,000. A report from the International Red Cross Tracing Service that tallied a total of 262,077 German concentration camp victims. Main cause of death: Typhus.
Obviously, the 6 million figure has mythic significance. The same figure was used in WWI against the Kaiser and against the Czar prior to the war claiming in both cases that 6 million Jews were in peril. In 1897 a "Science of Religion" American magazine, claims nearly 6 million Jews were killed in the Bar Kokhba revolt AD132-136. Wikipedia says that act of war against Rome led to half a million Jewish deaths [see Esau/Edom, and the Trail of the Serpent - XII] . . .

Harvard hates the White Race?
September 4, 2002 Neither parents, trustees, alumni, nor the public are aware of the anti-white propaganda that masquerades as education. When someone who is aware tells them, they think the person is exaggerating in order to make a point. Now comes Harvard educated Noel Ignatiev, an academic at Harvard's W.E.B. DuBois Institute for African-American Research. Dr. Ignatiev is the founder of a journal, Race Traitor, which has as its motto, "treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity."
The journal's purpose is "to abolish the white race." At the least, Dr. Ignatiev intends cultural and psychological genocide for whites. It is unclear whether physical extermination is part of the program. A statement by the editors on the web site says that the new abolitionists: "do not limit themselves to socially acceptable means of protest, but reject in advance no means of attaining their goal."
Dr. Ignatiev does not believe his agenda is controversial. He writes: "The goal of abolishing the white race is on its face so desirable that some may find it hard to believe that it could incur any opposition other than from committed white supremacists." Thus does he put whites on notice; if they oppose their abolition, they are "white supremacists."
According to Dr. Ignatiev, "The key to solving the social problems of our age is to abolish the white race." "Make no mistake about it," he says, "we intend to keep bashing the dead white males, and the live ones, and the females too, until the social construct known as 'the white race' is destroyednot 'deconstructed' but destroyed". . . The Washington Times reports that Dr. Ignatiev is himself Jewish. . . Full story: vdare.com
Comment: Speaking before a special meeting of the Emergency Council of European Rabbis in Budapest on January 12, 1952, Rabbi Emanuel Rabinovich said concerning progress towards their NWO, "I can state with assurance that the last generation of white children is now being born" (Newsletter 437). Jews are not white men. Are we melanin-disadvantaged supposed to develop paranoid personality disorder? Is there something endemic in state broadcasting in the Anglophone world which makes it taboo to discuss the population question and to air views that are critical of immigration? The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and the disgraceful record of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) appear to be emulating Rabbi Rabinovich . . . elliotlakenews.wordpress.com

Pastor Two Years Prison for teaching Parents should spank Children
May 30, 2012 Do you believe that parents should be able to spank their children? Do you ever express that opinion to others? If so, you could be sent to prison. Sadly, that is exactly what happened to one pastor up in Wisconsin recently. A minister named Philip Caminiti was sentenced to two years in prison for simply teaching that parents should spank their children when they misbehave. Please note that Caminiti was not accused of spanking anyone or of physically hurting anyone. He was put in prison simply for his speech. . . Even after Caminiti leaves prison, he will be forbidden from having any contact with his old church. . . Full story: rightsidenews.com

Muslims attack Australian War Graves
Having rejected the Absolute of God's unchanging Word, Australia like the rest of this apostate (once) Christian world is subject to God's Adversary and his vicariously sired race "set at enmity with the children of Adam" (Genesis 3:15). The Turks who have been dominated by these aliens for centuries before the Donmeh comprehend it not, blinded to their fate by Islam, a Trojan horse devised by the Judaeo-Roman Church. According to the motto, "By Deception thou shalt do war" Muslims have psyched themselves into fanatical religious fury detrimental to their own interests in a war planned in 1871. Likewise the apostate (once) Christian West, also in servitude, is mindlessly murdering millions of innocent Muslims in their own lands so this alien entity can control their resources to ensure oil trades in US$ to sustain the greenback, export US inflation, fund the blooded military of "the image to the beast" and compass Russia and China with ever more fortresses. Volunteer soldiers are dying to enable Mr. Rothschild, the world's richest man, to steal a pass through which he can pipe oil and natural gas from the Caspian Basin and take control of the independent central banks of Syria and Iran; and to guarantee the CIA maintains global dominance over the narcotics market that funds black operations such as the military-industrial-complex building flying machines utilizing technology unknown to national governments.
By UN subterfuge our alien rulers have deindustrialized the Western (once) Christian world, transforming us into "nations of shopkeepers," miners, farmers, or unemployed, aged and invalid "useless eaters" brought to unrecognized serfdom pending the planned collapse of the US dollar and world economy because we no longer possess productive economies. At the end of the Gentile dispensation Satan will be cast down to earth; a convulsion of nature will sink Los Angeles and split the Mount of Olives, demolishing the Dome of the Rock and igniting the hot stage of World War III between political Islam and political Zion. Millions will perish in hours as tsunamis and volcanoes overcome islands and coastlands. All currencies and economies will fail. By an alliance of world religions Rome will restore peace and a Devil-incarnate pope will be acclaimed president of one world government. Through Rothschild Rome controls the world's gold; in covenant with Jewish banksters Rome will refinance the US dollar and rule the world (Daniel 9:27). When "the love of money" surpassed our love of God we genuflected to the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs (GATT) or World Trade Organization (WTO) of the criminal United Nations, sacrificing our children to global eugenics and surrendering our economic prosperity and sovereignty . . . forever. With no productive economy other than agriculture and mining as in Australia's case, a nation is dependent upon foreign traders . . . banksters and carpetbaggersso-called citizens of the worldvagabonds and wanderers with no inheritance in this world nor hope in the world to come.
Who are the "traders" that set this trap for "the nations"? The Bible calls them "Canaanites"Cain's descendants through Ham's incest with Naamah the Serpent's seed wife Noah ignorantly brought with him onto the Ark. "Afterward the families of the Canaanites were spread abroad[driven out, beaten in sunder, dispersed and scattered]" (Genesis 11:18 as per Genesis 4:11-15). However through Esau's miscegenation with Canaanite and Hittite wives the Edomite branch of the Serpent's seed race potentially broke Jacob's yoke from off his neck.
Isaac had prophesied, "By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother Jacob; and it shall come to pass that when you shall have the dominion that you will break his yoke from off your neck" (Genesis 27:40). This prophecy was fulfilled when in 123BC John Hyrcanus compulsorily circumcised and incorporated Edom with the Judahites (Isaiah 34:5; I Maccabees 5:3). Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, XIII Footnote 25: "This account of the Idumeans admitting circumcision, and the entire Jewish Law, from this time, or from the days of Hyrcanus, is confirmed by their entire history afterward. See Antiq. B. XIV. ch. 8. sect. 1; B. XV. ch. 7. sect. 9. Of the War, B. II. ch. 3. sect. 1; B. IV. ch. 4. sect. 5. This, in the opinion of Josephus, made them proselytes of justice, or entire Jews, as here and elsewhere, Antiq. B. XIV. ch. 8. sect. 1. However, Antigonus, the enemy of Herod, though Herod were derived from such a proselyte of justice for several generations, will allow him to be no more than a half Jew, B. XV. ch. 15. sect. 2. But still, take out of Dean Prideaux, at the year 129, the words of Ammouius, a grammarian, which fully confirm this account of the Idumeans in Josephus: "The Jews," says he, are such by nature, and from the beginning, whilst the Idumeans were not Jews from the beginning, but Phoenicians and Syrians; but being afterward subdued by the Jews, and compelled to be circumcised, and to unite into one nation, and be subject to the same laws, they were called Jews." Dio also says, as the Dean there quotes him, from Book XXXVI. p. 37, "That country is called Judea, and the people Jews; and this name is given also to as many others as embrace their religion, though of other nations." But then upon what foundation so good a governor as Hyrcanus took upon him to compel those Idumeans either to become Jews, or to leave the country, deserves great consideration. I suppose it was because they had long ago been driven out of the land of Edom, and had seized on and possessed the tribe of Simeon, and all the southern parts of the tribe of Judah, which was the peculiar inheritance of the worshippers of the true God without idolatry, as the reader may learn from Reland, Palestine, Part I. p. 154, 305; and from Prideaux, at the years 140 and 165".
So complete was the amalgamation in Christ's time that the Herods of Idumean origin, as Jews, ruled over the two races as one people. Predominantly physical Serpent's seed and more numerous than Judahites in the days of our Lord, these Edomites "were hereafter no other than Jews" (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, XIII, 9:1).
Genesis 27:41, "And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart: The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob." And according to his motto, "By Deception thou shalt do war," Esau is killing Israelites in the Muslim countries at this very moment. This is not however the picture reported by the Jews' controlled news media because by subterfuge the killers are US and NATO forces, the CIA's 'al Qaeda', the 'Muslim Brotherhood' of MI6, professional mercenary killers employed by the US and Britain, and UN "peacekeeping forces," while those being mercilessly slaughtered at the behest of the NON-Semitic, ANTI-Semitic Edomite self-styled Jews are Semitic Lebanese, Iraqis, Iranians and Syrians among whom their Israelite brethren of the flesh have lived in safe exile for over 2,500 years as likewise they dwell in Algeria, Tunis, Libya, and Egypt, for they dare not return to Israel at this time "for fear of the Jews" who have stolen the land and identity of Israel".
Having abandoned the unbending Rod of God's unchanging Word which is the unpardonable sin, our once Christian nations have no strength and stay. No anchor, and no rudder, just sails catching every wind of doctrine blowing through the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil! Like apostate Israel our nations are living on past reputation, the enterprise of our forefathers, folk lore which is psychology, and faith transmogrified to human reason or tradition. We are defenseless in our own countries, corrupt politicians signed away our liberties to organs of Lucifer's UN whose alien "traders" demand we surrender sovereignty and national wealth to feed, house, clothe and educate myriad inassimilable refugees of their making: unwanted, unwelcome peoples of every colour, race, 'culture,' language and religion according to their edict of 'multiculturalism,' which is a repetition of the original sin and accursed of God.
But, hey, this is 'evolution'! Having grown obese from the Tree of the Knowledge (Lucifer), knowing good and evil without discernment twixt the twain, we now know that "in the beginning Man created god"! And while the rape and rapine of the City of London's mercenaries makes tens of millions of refugees the "traders" remind us that as prodigals we signed what they call humanitarian obligations assuming responsibility for the sins of the Luciferians. Sin has found us out! Christians should live free as a separated people, hybrid neither in spirit nor in flesh, with goodwill to all and entangling alliances with none. Charity begins at home; Jesus said the poor will always be with you, and the corrupt UN is surety to this.
Daniel prophesied, "At the time of the end global travel will be commonplace, and knowledge shall be increased . . . the wicked will do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise will understand" (Daniel 12:4, 10).
Zechariah prophesied that in the Millennium, "there shall be no more Canaanite [or trader] in the house of the Lord of Hosts" (Zechariah 14:20-21; Isaiah 34; 52:1; 63:1-6; Ezekiel 44:9; Revelation 21:27; 22:15).
Jesus prophesied in Revelation 2:20-23 and 17:1 20:10 He will destroy the Vatican with atomic fire, and apostate Judaeo-Catholics and so-called Protestants in the lake of fire as in Ezekiel 9 He foretold how seven hundred years hence His servant General Titus would destroy not God's house but "the Jews' desolate house," ending temple worship and the Levitical priesthood for all time (Matthew 23:38).
In Revelation 3:15-20 He foretold the apostasy of the once Christian church worldwide in March, 1963: "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would you were cold or hot. Because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue you out of My mouth. Because you say you are materially rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that spiritually you are wretched and miserable, bankrupt, blind to the faith and naked of the Blood: I counsel you to buy of Me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich; and white raiment, that you may be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness does not appear; and anoint your [Spiritual] eyes with eyesalve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man [not any church] hears My Voice, and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me". Full story: liveleak.com

The Sources of Islam, Rev. W. St. Clair-Tisdall shows, have been altogether human and misleading. They all passed through the Prophet's mind as he composed the Qur'an, which thus bears throughout the impress of his own heart and character. One good thing there is in it, namely, a thorough testimony to the Gospel and "Torah"; all true Muslims are accordingly invited to study both, and thus through our Saviour Christ obtain the true promises of their father Abraham.
In The Original Sources of the Qur'an: The Influence of Christianity and Christian Apocryphal Books, Rev. W. St. Clair-Tisdall shows there is much truth in the dictum of the ancient Greek philosopher Democritus that "Nothing has sprung from nothing." Islam, as the Religion of Muhammad is called by its adherents, is certainly no exception to that rule. The important part which that religion has played for good or ill in the history of the human race and the widespread influence which it still continues to exert in many Eastern lands render an investigation of its origin of interest to everyone who, whether from a religious, a historical, or a merely philosophical standpoint, desires to investigate one of the most important movements in the history of the human race.
Ezekiel 38 and 39 Part I
Numbers 35:33-34, "You shall not pollute the land wherein you are: for blood defiles the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it. [An eye for an eye and a life for a life]. Defile not therefore the land which you shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I the Lord dwell among the children of Israel".
Ezekiel 37:21-28, "THUS SAITH THE LORD; I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they have gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: and I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and One King shall be King to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more: neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be My people, and I will be their God."
"And [throughout the millennium] David My servant shall be King over them; and they will all have One Shepherd (Ezekiel 34:23; John 10:16): they shall also walk in My judgments, and observe My statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given to Jacob My servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they and their children, and their children's children for ever: and My servant David shall be their Prince forever."
"Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be My people. And the heathen shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary [or Presence] is in their midst for evermore".
Ezekiel 37 describes Israel's restoration to the land of the Covenant in the first part of Daniel's Seventieth Week following a mass exodus of Jewry; the ministry of two Hebrew prophets to 144,000 elect Israelites (Zechariah 4; Revelation 11), their conversion and martyrdom after the midst of the week, and their resurrection in the Millennium. Ezekiel 38 and 39 are set in Daniel's Seventieth Weekafter the end of the Gentile dispensation.
Whereas the land of the Covenant has been restored to the modern Israel state which is threatened by an invasion from the north, the Israelites themselves have not been restored. Some of the historical nations take part in the attack, but the invaders are remote barbarians, from outside the ancient civilized world.
In chapters 38 and 39 God will "bring forth Gog" and without human help defeat his vast armies and crumble every possible refuge with divinely induced panic as fell upon the army of the Midianites when Gideon's soldiers smashed their pitchers and shouted the cry to battle (Ezekiel 38:19-23; Judges 6-7). This is the time of the Sixth Seal: men shall implore the mountains, "Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sits upon the Throne and from the wrath of the Lamb." The details are omitted from the description of the victory for it permits no spectators (Genesis 19:24-26; Isaiah 17:12-14) and plunder from Gog's defeat is not treated as riches for Israelite soldiers but as belonging to the real Victor, our Lord Jesus Christ. It is therefore cherem and destined for fire (Ezekiel 39:9-10; Isaiah 9:4-5; Psalm 46:9-11) and as a feast for God's non-human creatures (Ezekiel 39:18-20; Isaiah 34:1-8). Israel's only participation is in burying the dead and destroying the weapons.
Ezekiel 38:1-7, "And the Word of the Lord came to me, saying, Son of man, look northward, toward the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech (Moscow), and Tubal (Tobolsk or Siberia)." [Magog represents the Scythians from whom after intermarriage with the Medes, came the Russians. According to the Table of Nations in Genesis 10, these are descendants of the sons of Japheth. In Ezekiel, "Gog" is their "chief" or principal man, the Czar or President of a union of several lesser princes, however, in Revelation 20:8 which takes place after the general resurrection and prior to the white throne judgment, Gog is a people].
The Eastward advance of Rome's empire was prevented by Parthia, which in the apostles' day extended from India to the Tigris, occupying areas now Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan andfor brief periodssections of Pakistan, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel and Palestine. Rising from the ruins of the Persian Empire Parthia was the only power Rome dreaded. The Parthians were Scythian Tartars of the Turanian race whose roots lie in Mongolia. An invasion from the East was something greatly feared by John's readers under the Imperial Roman Empire as it has been in the twentieth century under Papal Rome. Until the Armistice it came from Parthia's remnant under the Ottoman Turkish Empire. Alexander the Great's Empire that was succeeded in part by Rome encompassed Greece, Syria, Palestine, Egypt, Libya, Turkey, Armenia, and what would become the Parthian Empire. Today's reviving Holy Roman Empire of the European Union is in league with Israel and the 'City of London' subduing elements of her eastern capital by debt, and Muslim lands of the former Parthian Empire by bombs, guns and 'depleted' uranium at the hands of her US image and NATO since the end of the Church Ages.
Tartar is the name given early Mongol races of Central Asia. They lived in northeastern Gobi during the 400's, but were later driven southward by the Khitan tribes. During the 800's, the Tartars founded the Mongolian Empire. In the 1200's, the Mongols began a movement through Hungary, Romania, Poland, Turkey, Russia, and Bulgaria. Today, the term Tartar describes peoples of Turkish origin and other groups who live in western Asia and the European part of Russia. Their physical features and original stocks depend upon where they live.
Most of the present-day Tartars are Moslems, and speak some form of the Turkish language. Some are nomads. Others settled permanently and worked on farms or gardens. A typical Tartar group is the Kirgiz. Tartar comes from the Manchu word tatar, which means archer or nomad. They early took the form of Tartar because it was associated with Tartarus, the abode of the dead.
"Prophesy against him, and say, THUS SAITH THE LORD; Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: and I will put hooks into your jaws, and draw you from your own land, and I will mobilize your troops and armored cavalry, and make you a mighty host, all fully armed: Persia [Iran], Ethiopia, and Libya [these last two are descendents of Ham]: shall join you with all of their weapons: Gomer, and all its troops; the armies of Togarmah from the distant north with all its troops, as well as many others.
[Gomer and Togarmah are the peoples of the eastern boundary of the old Roman empire in the area around Mount Ararat where the borders of Turkey, Iran, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Russia meet with Syria and Iraq]. Be prepared, stay mobilized, you and all your companies that are assembled unto you. You, Russia, are their leader".
Ezekiel 38:8-12, "After many days you will be summoned; in the latter years you will swoop down upon the land of Israel that is restored from the sword, whose inhabitants have been gathered out of many nations, to the mountains of Israel, which have been a continual desolation: but its people have been brought out from the nations, and are all living securely".
Ezekiel says the land of Israel is restored from the sword at this time and her citizens have been gathered out of the nations. Yet Jesus states emphatically, "Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the Gentiles until the times [not the dispensations] of the Gentiles are fulfilled" (Luke 21:24) so the present citizens of Israel are neither Israelites nor even a Semitic people.
Jesus described the time after the Gentile dispensation as a period of extreme and universal terror (Luke 21:25-26). With the United States reeling from an earthquake that sinks Los Angeles, her NATO partners preoccupied supplying relief to their own citizens and former dominions, and Israel invaded after an earthquake splits the mount of Olives and demolishes "es Sakhra," the Dome of the Rock (Zechariah 14:4), Russia will take this window of opportunity to invade the United States and lead the Muslim attack upon Israel, insensible to the fact this prophetic catastrophe signals her restoration to God's favor and consequently their fight is against God.
"You Russians shall go up and roll down upon them like a storm, and cover the land like a cloud, you, and all your troops, and many peoples with you."
"THUS SAITH THE LORD; It shall also come to pass, that at this time things shall come into your mind and you shall devise an evil plan: And you will say, "Israel is an unprotected land of unwalled villages; I will march against them that are at rest, and dwell safely, all dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates." To capture spoil, and to seize plunder; to turn your hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have acquired cattle and goods, who live at the center of the world."
"Sheba, and Dedan, [descendants of Ham who established what we call Yemen in Southern Arabia], and the merchants of Tarshish, shall ask: Have you come to capture spoil? Have you gathered your company to carry away silver and gold, to drive away their cattle and seize their goods, and impoverish them?"
God is sovereign. He examines the motives and objectives of every heart. In addition to contemplating aggression against those who are defenseless and complacent, dwelling securely without walls, bars, or gates, Russia covets Israel's mineral wealth and strategic position "at the center of the earth".
Isaiah 60:5, "Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall rejoice at your glorious return; because the abundant wealth of the Dead Sea shall be yours, the wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you".
A modern State of Israel has been established, the deserts have been made to produce abundantly, and the Dead Sea holds important chemical salts, the estimated total value of which is four times the wealth of the United States. Brother Branham said, "Russia will come down and say: We've just got to have that stuff. That's uranium and everything down there; we got to go get it. And as they go down, then will be the battle of Armageddon. That will be when God will stand like He did in the valley for the children of Israel and fight again. But that will not take place until the Gentile dispensation will be finished. And when that time is finished, she's cut off" (C.O.D., 77:111; 294:530; Daniel, 122:157). But not for several years after this invasion.
Armageddon (Revelation 16:16) is the place of slaughter in the struggle of good and evil as suggested by that great Old Testament battle plain of Esdraelon, which was famous for the victory of Barak over the Canaanites, and Gideon over the Midianites; and for the two great disasters, the death of Saul and Israel's defeat before the Philistines (I Samuel 31), and good king Josiah's death in battle with Pharaoh Necho (II Kings 23:20, 30). Hence in Revelation the scene of a terrible retribution upon the wicked. Armageddon means the hill or city of Megiddo. Both this and the valley of Berachah or 'Blessing,' where Jehoshaphat defeated the Gentiles (II Chronicles 20:26; Zechariah 14:2-4) may be figurative phrases for the scene of the final conflict between Christ and Antichrist. Joel 3:2, 12-14 prophesied, "I will gather the armies of all nations into the valley of Jehoshaphat [which means 'Jehovah has judged'], and punish them there for harming My people, for scattering My inheritance among the nations, and dividing up My land." That will be Armageddon.
Moab, Ammon and the Edomites, whom God did not allow Israel to invade on their journey to the Promised Land, came to invade Israel in the days of Jehoshaphat. God anointed a Levite who prophesied that "the battle is the Lord's" so when Israel goes to do battle, they should once again find their enemies have fought themselves to death (II Chronicles 20).
What a perfect type of God's prophecy for the end-time. Zechariah 14:13, "It shall come to pass in that day that Russia will be seized with great panic from the Lord; and they will fight against each other in hand-to-hand combat." In II Chronicles it was Moab, Ammon and the Edomites who attacked the Land of the Covenant, here Russia and the Islamic nations will attack.
Ezekiel 38:14-16, "Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Russia, THUS SAITH THE LORD: In the day when My people Israel live securely, won't you know it? And you will come from your place out of the remote north, you, and your vast host of cavalry will come up against My people Israel, like a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, that I shall bring you against My Land, in order that the nations may know Me, when I shall be sanctified in your defeat, O Russia, before their eyes".
"THUS SAITH THE LORD: Are you he of whom I have spoken in old time by My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied in those days for many years that I would bring you against them" (Deuteronomy 32:43; Isaiah 5:26-29; 34:1-6; 63:1-6; 66:15-16; Joel 3:9-14)?
God calls Israel "My people," and the Land "My Land," signifying the Gentile dispensation is over, and He is dealing only with Israel. So an offense against Israel is an affront to God.
Though Gog stirs himself, comes from his place, and goes up like a cloud against Israelthree verbs implying his own self-propulsionthe real controlling power behind his attack is solely God: "It is 'I' Who will bring you." Ezekiel 38:4, "I will put hooks into your jaws, and draw you from your own land . . ." And by bringing Russia to the land for judgment, God will prove to the nations His Own holiness. Clearly, therefore, Ezekiel 38-39 describe "a time of trouble" that commences with an invasion of Israel after the Gentile dispensation, followed by three and a half years of 'peace' under Judaeo-Roman one world government during which two prophets minister to Israel, after which Rome breaks her covenant and the so-called Jews and their Black Nobility switch allegiance to Judaeo-Communist Russia then bomb Vatican City State and the United States, initiating Armageddon.
Ezekiel 38:18-20, "And it shall come to pass when Russia comes against the land of Israel," declares the Lord God, that My fury shall explode. For in My jealousy and blazing wrath I declare in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel; And the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the beasts of the field, all the creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all men upon the face of the earth, will shake at My Presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, cliffs shall tumble, and every wall shall fall to the ground".
Haggai 2:21-23, "Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah [and representative of the Davidic monarchy and Covenant in the lineal ancestry of Jesus Christ], saying, "I will shake the heavens and the earth; And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, everyone by the sword of his brother. [Russia and her allies will slaughter one another]. In that day, says the Lord of hosts, will I take you O Zerubbabel, My servant, the son of Shealtiel, says the Lord, and will make you [through Messiah, your descendant] My signet [Seal of Redemption]: for I have chosen you [with whom to renew My Covenant to David's line, says the Lord of hosts".
The earthquake follows and marks the Presence of God (Isaiah 2:19-21; Jeremiah 4:23-26; Joel 2:2, 21; Zechariah 14:3-4). It will sink Los Angeles, and split the Mount of Olives, destroying the Mosque of Omar on the Temple mount. For mercenary and strategic reasons, Russia and the Moslems through religious fanaticism grasp this opportunity and invade Israel, but God stands for His land and His people.
I Kings 19:11-12, "And God said to Elijah, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before Him; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice." God will not be found in the earthquake or the strong wind, but in the still small Voice of Israel's two witnesses.
Ezekiel 38:21-23, "And I will call for a sword against Russia throughout all My mountains says the Lord God: every man's sword shall be against his brother. With disease and with blood shall I fight him; and I will rain upon him and on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, a torrential rain of fire, and with hailstones of brimstone. Thus will I magnify, and sanctify Myself; and I will be known in the sight of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord".
I find it interesting that unlike the Book of Daniel, these chapters don't deal with Romanism and the beast but with Russia and the Islamic people. Rome does not become involved until after this battle when they form an alliance with the USA and the international Jews, and the Pope restores peace. Verses 21-23 would appear to be a summary of God's judgment upon Russia and its Muslim allies throughout the seven-year period of the Sixth Seal. The climax: rain of fire and hail of brimstone, is reminiscent of the judgment upon Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:24-28). The chapter concludes with a triple assertion of God's purpose: "I will magnify Myself, and sanctify Myself; and I will be known in the sight of the many nations who witness Gog's fate, so they will recognize that I Am God." In thus exercising His wrath against the world powers, God proves His true identity and implies that His people shall be saved as in the Exodus. And as Joshua took seven years to conquer the land, so now Israel will spend an allegorical seven years destroying discarded weaponry after God defeats their invaders.
Ezekiel 39:1-16, "Therefore, you son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, THUS SAITH THE LORD; Behold, I am against you, O Russia, the Leader of Meshech [Moscow] and Tubal [Tobolsk, Siberia]: and I will turn you around and drive you from the remotest parts of the north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel. [In the KJV we also read, "And leave but the sixth part of thee" which is a misinterpretation and should read: "drive" or "forcibly march"]. And I will smite your bow out of your left hand, and cause your arrows to fall out from your right hand."
"You and all your vast armies will die upon the mountains of Israel and I will give you as food to the birds of prey, and wild animals will devour you. You shall not reach the city, but fall upon the open fields: for I have spoken it, says the Lord God. And I will rain down fire on Russia, and on all your allies who live safely on the coasts: and they shall know that I am the Lord. Thus will I make My holy Name known among My people Israel; and I will not let them profane it any more: and the nations shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel. Behold, that Day of Judgment will come, and everything will happen just as I have declared. And they that inhabit the cities shall go forth, and gather the weapons, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: They shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for these weapons will furnish all the fuel they require: and they shall use the possessions of those who despoiled them, and rob those who plundered them," says the Lord God. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give to Russia a vast graveyard in Israel in the valley of the travelers, east of the Dead Sea: and it will block the path of the travelers: there Gog and all his multitude will be buried: and they shall call it "The valley of Hamongog" [Gog's Army].
It will take seven months for the house of Israel to bury them, in order to cleanse the Land.
"Everyone in Israel will help bury them; for it will be a glorious victory for Israel on the day I glorify Myself, says the Lord God. And at the end of seven months they shall employ men to systematically search throughout the land for any skeletons and to bury them, to cleanse it: And the travelers who see a man's bone, shall set up a sign by it, so they can be located and transported for burial in the valley of Hamongog. The name of the city there shall be Hamonah [Army or Multitude]. Thus shall they cleanse the land".
Ezekiel 39:1-16 restates the previous chapter with variations in detail. The first five verses announce Gog's defeat. In verses 6-8 we are told that Gog's defeat is extended to his homeland and that of his allies. The Fire of God's wrath will rain upon Magog and his allies "living securely" in distant lands. An ironic note, since Israel's own defenseless "living in security" had prompted Gog to launch his attack.
Gog's defeat and the destruction of his homeland will be followed by the burning of his weapons. A number of other Biblical passages use the motif of weapons to emphasize God's superiority over the nations, or the foolishness of trusting in, or fearing weapons.
Of Israel's restoration to the Land, Christ's 'parousia' to Israel, and the Millennium, Isaiah 9:4-7 says, "God has broken the yoke of Israel's burden, and the staff on their shoulder, the rod of their oppressor, as when He destroyed the vast host of the Midianites on the plain of Esdraelon [which is Armageddon] by Gideon's little band. For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall all be for burning as fuel for the fire. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His Name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. There shall be no end to the increase of His government and of peace, upon the throne of David, and upon His kingdom, to establish and to uphold it, with judgment and with justice from henceforth forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this" as Revelation 19 confirms.
The people themselves destroy the weapons; in fact this task and the burial are their only real participation in the whole contest. As the account makes clear from beginning to end, Gog's invasion and his defeat are totally under God's control. So much weaponry will be abandoned it will provide sufficient fuel to supply Israel with domestic fuel seven full years. If this is a literal period to be fulfilled, it must be placed at the start of the seventieth week as we have been teaching. However, I suspect the seven years is hyperbole implying completeness of the cleansing, and the people's zeal for purity. How different from the ancient Israelites, who left not merely the arms, but the heathen themselves, to remain among them.
The promise they will despoil those who would despoil them, and take booty from those who would rob them, turns the tables on Gog. Further irony is seen in that God gives Gog a burial place in the land, rather than the land itself. The burying of the remains of the dead keeps the land pure from ritual pollution, and since it proceeds for seven months, emphasizes the enormity of Gog's defeat and God's glory.
Ezekiel 39:17-21, "Son of man, THUS SAITH THE LORD; call all the birds and animals and say, assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves from far and near to My sacrifice which I am going to sacrifice for you, upon the mountains of Israel, that you may eat flesh, and drink blood. You shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, as though they were rams, lambs, goats, and bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan."
"You shall eat fat until you are glutted, and drink blood until you are drunk from My sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. Thus you shall be filled at My table with horses and charioteers, with mighty men, and with all the men of war, says the Lord God. And I will set My glory among the nations, and all the nations shall see My judgment that I have executed, and My hand that I have laid on them".
The animal guests at the feast eat the fat and the blood, normally reserved in a sacrifice for Jehovah for these sacrifices are 'unclean.' The victory over Gog will be an occasion for the nations to see Jehovah's glory and to realize His justice. However, like pharaoh, their day of grace has expired and their hearts have been seared by the hot iron of unbelief.
The Son of man, Jesus Christ, has come down in His 'parousia' and made His Word so real it has united the Bride as one with Him and she has been taken Home. We go to the wedding supper, not to the marriage. Because "the marriage of the Lamb has come to pass . . . And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, Come! Gather yourselves together for the supper of the great God, that you may eat the flesh of kings, and captains, and valiant men, of horses and riders, and the of all humanity both small and great, bond and free" (Revelation 19:7-9,17-18; Ezekiel 39:17-20; William Branham, Proving His Word, p. 44:236).
Ezekiel 39:22-23, "So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day and forward. And the nations shall know that the house of Israel went into exile for their iniquity: because they dealt treacherously against Me, therefore I hid My face from them, and gave them to the hand of their enemies: and all of them fell by the sword".
Through Gog's overwhelming defeat the 144,000 elect Israelites will return to Israel. The cleansing of the land symbolizes renewed zeal for the Mosaic Law and ordinances. As Malachi 4:4 says, "Remember the Law of Moses My servant, which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments." Before their 'Elijah' can introduce the elect to the New Covenant of Ezekiel 36, their 'Moses' must take them back to their foundation in the Old Covenant whence they have fallen.
This is no indication of repentance. Revelation 22:11, "He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he who is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still." The time for repentance among "the nations" has passed. Those who are "the saved" must lay down their lives for their principles, or take the mark of the beast and have their names removed from the Book of Life.
Brother Branham said, "For three and one-half years while the retributive wrath of God is poured out, His Bride will be in the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Then will He return, 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 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" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 40:2).
Ezekiel 36:21-29, "But I had pity for My holy Name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, whither they went. Therefore say to the house of Israel, THUS SAITH THE LORD; I do this not for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for My holy Name's sake, which you have profaned among the heathen, whither you went. And I will sanctify My great Name, which was profaned among the heathen, which you have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, says the Lord God, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes."
"For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh."
"And I will put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you shall keep My judgments, and do them. And you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and you shall be My people, and I will be your God. I will also save you from all your uncleannesses. . ."
From the time of God's great sacrifice of Gog's army, the nations will learn it was because of iniquity and rebellion that Israel went into exile, and not God's weakness or His inability to defend them. But they will only harden their hearts for they have come to a place of no more repentance.
Ezekiel 39:24-29, "According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I dealt with them, and hid My face from them. Therefore THUS SAITH THE LORD; Now will I restore Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for My holy Name; their time of treachery and shame shall all be in the past, when they live safely in their land, with no one to make them afraid."
"Once I have brought them back from the peoples, and gathered them out from the lands of their enemies, My glory will be evident to all nations; then Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God, who caused them to be led into exile among the heathen: and then have gathered them to their own land, and left none of them there any longer. Neither will I hide My face any more from them: for I have poured out My Spirit upon the house of Israel, says the Lord God".
Restoration will lead to serious reflection among the elected on the reasons that led to their historic departure from the Land. Ezekiel uses the account of God's defeat of Gog's invasion in chapters 38 and 39 to underscore once more the finality and irreversibility of the divine promise for the future of Israel.
May the Lord use these words to clarify our understanding of things to come. (bb960724.htm) nl739
