If you have not heard from us it is because your email address is not in our address book.
This week we commence a study on the Book of Malachi with a modicum of history to accentuate our focus on "the present Truth"—what Jesus is doing now and "the things that are to be".
The world systems and the administrators associated with them are so corrupted or afraid to stand for commonsense truth and righteousness, all one can do is to turn one's eyes upon Jesus knowing the battle is against the supernatural unseen for we serve a Greater Unseen and "fight not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in heavenly places."
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible. You are always welcome to contact us by email.
Presidential Race an Intelligence Operation . . . Americans not Duped
September 28, 2016 — While presidential debate moderators are not allowed to wear earpieces during the proceedings, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) has not specifically ruled out the use of ear mikes for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the first debate on September 26, 2016. Global World Government advocate Lester Holt makes US$4.5M p.a., his intelligence cover is that of a reporter for NBC/Comcast run by VP/CEO banker Steve Burke, Director of Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan Chase. Moderator Holt is wearing an earpiece to control perceptions of the American People. You can watch the crime/scam here and believe the Bill Gates (Bilderberger) controlled newspapers (Sentinel, Mercury and Monterey Herald) will not let you know aol.com.
A four time world champion poker player stated Hillary Clinton used hand signals to communicate with moderator Lester Holt during the first US presidential debate. A lot of pre-debate preparation by the bankers' girl Hillary wearing a Listening Device.
Comment: The Seventh Trump should see the end of the Gentile dispensation and the going Home of Christ's Bride. Donald means "Great chief or world ruler"; Trump means "to outrank or defeat someone or something": an appropriate name for the president of "the image unto the beast" (Revelation 13:11-15).
Congress rejects Obama Veto of 9/11 Bill
September 28, 2016 — [April 16, 2016 — Saudi Arabia threatened to pull $750B from US economy if Congress allowed them to be sued for 9/11 terror attacks"]. But after an intense push by 9/11 survivors and families of victims who want to sue Saudi Arabia based on claims the country played a role in the 2001 terror attacks, even Obama's Democratic allies on Capitol Hill voted to override his veto. The House voted 348-77, well above the two-thirds majority needed. The final vote tally in the Senate was 97-1. Minority Leader Harry Reid cast the lone dissenting vote . . . The measure essentially creates an exception to sovereign immunity, the doctrine that holds one country can't be sued in another country's courts. It allows plaintiffs to sue other nations in US federal courts for monetary damages in cases of injury, death or property damage caused by acts of international terrorism in the United States.
The White House has argued that the legislation will prompt other nations to retaliate, stripping the immunity the United States enjoys in other parts of the world. Obama said in a letter to Reid before Wednesday's vote that lawsuits already are allowed against countries designated as state sponsors of terrorism by the US government . . . the law could be "devastating" to the US military, diplomatic and intelligence communities. "The United States relies on principles of immunity to prevent foreign litigants and foreign courts from second-guessing our counter-terrorism operations and other actions that we take every day," he wrote . . .

Comment: Historically the Philippines, Germany, Japan, Iran, North Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, Iraq, Yugoslavia, Serbia, Iraq, Nicaragua, Cuba, Somalia, Sudan, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, and many other countries would be entitled to lodge claims. I suggest the claimants have been sent on "a wild goose chase" to exhaust and detract litigants from hauling Israel, the Mossad, CIA, FBI, key men in several US Administrations and top US military brass to justice.
Russians release Drone Video of Radicals attacking UN Convoy
September 25, 2016 — Witnesses say that the convoy was hit at least 20 times. Russian Defence Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov released a statement to the press, saying: "Analysis of yesterday's drone footage monitoring the movement of the aid convoy through the militant held areas helped to reveal new details. . . . The video clearly shows how the terrorists are relocating a pickup truck with a large-calibre mortar." Konashenkov added: "There are no craters, while the vehicles have their chassis intact and they have not been severely damaged, which would have been the case from an airstrike"
If it turns out that the US government is lying, this is truly frightening. Are US-backed rebels trying to force the United States into not only a no-win war with Russia but one that the US
might[WILL] actually lose?

'Syrian Observatory for Human Rights' funded by US and UK Governments
September 23, 2016 — "Syrian Observatory for Human Rights" is neither based in Syria nor is it an observer of what actually goes on there. It is essentially one man—Abdul Rahman, aka Rami Abdulrahman, aka Osama Suleiman—a three-term convicted criminal in Syria, based out of a small house [above a T-shirt shop] in Coventry, England, and his 'team of four activists in Syria'.
Rahman, by his own admission, is a member of the 'Syrian opposition' and seeks the ouster of Al Assad, so that clearly removes any semblance of objectivity in his 'reporting' . . . This man is as far from a 'human rights activist' as anyone can be. His funding comes from the European Union and "an unnamed European state," most likely the UK as he has direct access to former Foreign Minister William Hague, who he has been documented meeting in person on multiple occasions . . . and shares Rahman's enthusiasm for removing Assad from power. The New York Times in fact reveals that it was the British government that first relocated Abdul Rahman to Coventry, England after he fled Syria over a decade ago because of his anti-government activities . . . Image: "Putin and Assad did it!"—Syrian refugees fleeing US-backed invaders . . . Full story: sott.net
Comment: Islam Times — The sole source of information used by Western governments and media to justify a foreign backed insurgency in Syria is the so-called "Syrian Observatory for Human rights." The UN has also used information provided by the observatory in several of its reports. Criminals in church and state run our nations and rule the world. Rahman is an asset of British Intelligence (sic).
Risk of big Quake on San Andreas Fault rises after Quake Swarm at Salton Sea
September 30, 2016 — The rumbling started Monday morning deep under the Salton Sea. A rapid succession of small earthquakes — three measuring above magnitude 4.0—began rupturing near Bombay Beach, continuing for more than 24 hours. Before the swarm started to fade, more than 200 earthquakes had been recorded . . . only the third time since earthquake sensors were installed there in 1932 that the area had seen such a swarm and this one had more earthquakes than the events of 2001 and 2009. The quakes occurred in one of California’s most seismically complex areas. They hit in a seismic zone just south of where the mighty San Andreas Fault ends. It is composed of a web of faults that scientists fear could one day wake up the nearby San Andreas . . . where the mighty San Andreas Fault ends . . . a web of faults that . . . has not ruptured since about 1680—more than 330 years ago, scientists estimate. And a big earthquake happens on average in this area once every 150 or 200 years, so experts think the region is long overdue for a major quake . . .
The San Andreas is also thought to be smoother than other faults, making it easier for an earthquake to keep plowing ahead into a longer, more powerful rupture, rather than ending as a smaller event . . . other earthquakes in past decades . . . Full story: latimes.com
Earth's Surface can Change Rapidly
September 28, 2016 — Knowing our belief in the prophesied sinking of Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300 - 400 mile segment of earth's crust causing tidal waves to sweep the oceans (Isaiah 13:6-14; 24:18-23; Luke 21:25-26; Revelation 16:18; 18:21-24) our contributing author Brother Jonathan Gray sent this interesting information:
- A recent Chilean earthquake elevated parts of the coastline 1,000ft?
- Alaska's Good Friday earthquake of March, 1964, lowered the floor of Seward harbour by 315ft.
- In 1923, technicians of a Western Telegraph ship searching for a lost cable in the Atlantic Ocean found it had been thrown up by the rising ocean bed 2¼ miles in only 25 years. A 12,000ft rise in one spot!
- In 1929, the Great Banks seaquake cut the northern cables. When the cables were repaired, measurements of the sea floor indicated that certain areas had suddenly risen almost 5,000ft.
- In May, 1973, part of the Banin Trench near Japan rose 6,000ft.
- The 1960 earthquake which wiped out the Moroccan city of Agadir uplifted the land from about 90ft (close to the shore) to around 3,300ft (several miles from the shore) in just 45 seconds!
- In Japan, a few years later, a two-minute quake sank the bottom of the sea around Izu Peninsula well over 1,000ft. It also sank many houses in the new subdivisions along the coast right into the shale bedrock, which liquefied. Comprehensive research found that medium strength metamorphic rock can liquefy within minutes.
- An earthquake off the northern tip of Sumatra on December 26, 2004, raised the sea bottom in the Straits of Malacca almost 4,000ft in about 3 minutes.
- The US-based National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, which analyses spy satellite imagery and produces maps and charts for the Defence 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 4,060ft to 105ft.
- In another affected area, a merchant ship logged that the depth was cut from 3,855ft to just 92ft. The US Navy sent ships to re-chart the waters. Sonar images from British navy ship HMS Scott showed the massive uplift of a large area 10 kilometres wide and up to 1.5km high (4,800ft plus) Full story: beforeus.com
Power Blackout plunged South Australia into Darkness
September 29, 2016 — State-wide outage happened Wednesday after Tornadoes knocked out three transmission lines and 22 towers (and climbing). There were 80,000 lightning strikes across the state . . . No backup for airport security gates. Paid [privatised] parking working just fine. abc.net.au
Comment: The fact is our politicians are in bondage to a four-letter alien power seeking global hegemony, in consequence of which this state, this nation and yours, are held hostage to the lying psychology of the "hole in the ozone layer" which morphed into "global cooling," which morphed into "global warming," and when their folly was exposed, "climate change." International liars control global media and communications, our controlled two-party sham Hegelian democracies (sic), and politicians regimented by faceless men behind the party line.
In service to the globalists 40% of South Australia's electricity is generated by wind turbines. Hence they have insufficient coal-fired generators to provide reliable base-load power because they produce an infinitesimal amount of CO2 which has NO affect whatsoever on climate. It would indeed be desirable to have more, much more CO2 in the atmosphere for the health of the earth as CO2 in plant food. Presently the fraction of CO2 in the atmosphere is LESS that 0.04%, and most of this is emitted by nature. Since 1850, the airborne fraction has remained relatively constant. When CO2 emissions were low, the amount of CO2 absorbed by natural carbon sinks was correspondingly low. As anthropogenic (human) CO2 emissions sharply increased in the 20th Century, the amount absorbed by nature increased correspondingly. The airborne fraction remained level at around 43%. The trend since 1850 is found to be 0.7 ± 1.4%/decade (skepticalscience.com).
The climate change HOAX is a satanic racket of the globalist international banksters to deindustrialise and depopulate the world. In the coming months the Ford, General Motors and Toyota will cease manufacturing in South Australia and the nation. Maurice Strong, billionaire Canadian oil and mineral businessman and a diplomat who served as Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations, founding the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) stated: "Isn't the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn't it our responsibility to bring that about?"
Maurice Strong was the son of Deng Xiaoping and Anna Louise Strong?—Planning the People's Republic from France—Like father, like son? He proposed World Government via coup d’état using the camouflage of the environment to set the trap to reduce the population of the planet by 6 Billion people. He was an active honorary professor at Peking University and Honorary Chairman of its Environmental Foundation.
Compliant politicians ignore the historical precedent that once the powers that be accomplish their goal they will be lined up and shot because they know too much just as the German Administration was murdered after World War II, Slobodan Milosevic, and the US Navy Seals from Team 6 who were killed to shut them up following the slaughter of a fake Osama bin Laden—not the real Osama bin Laden, CIA Corporal Tim Osman, who died a natural death four years previously.
"Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad"! In 1964 Brother Branham said, "If the world would stand another fifty years, the whole world would be totally insane. Look at the sanity from twenty years ago to this time . . . I believe the world is completely going insane. Did you know it's a time that people can't judge between right and wrong, or truth or error? Do you know the politicians can't judge right and wrong?"
The 'Global 2000 Report to the President' and 'Global Future: A Time to Act' are correctly understood as political statements of intent—the intent on the part of such policy-centers as the Council on Foreign Relations, The Trilateral Commission, and the International Monetary Fund, to pursue policies that will result not only in the death of 170 million cited in the reports, but in the death of upwards of 2 billion people by the year 2000. The policies embedded in the reports—the neo-Malthusian policies of restricting scientific and technological development, restricting technology transfer to the developing countries, restricting food production, preventing nuclear energy development—and the forces responsible for these policies represent the greatest threat to the continued existence of humanity as we know it.
In a fundamental sense, there are no new ideas contained in either 'Global 2000' or 'Global Future,' since there have been many doomsday predictions of a 'population explosion' issued over the past two decades, most notably the 'Limits to Growth' report of the Club of Rome. What is extraordinary about 'Global 2000' is that, unlike 'Limits to Growth' and its other predecessors, 'Global 2000' admits that world population levels can be determined by people themselves, by the financial, economic and scientific-technological policies adopted by peoples and their governments. But, while making this admission 'Global 2000' and 'Global Future' reject the very policies that would result in conditions allowing for expanded population.
This Global 2000 view is currently guiding the economic and foreign policies of the United States . . . For the advanced sector countries, this means the acceleration of depression conditions, characterised by rising bankruptcies and unemployment, and continued decline of traditional heavy industries. For the developing countries, it means death to millions—and eventually billions—as countries are forced by the IMF's lending conditionalities to cut imports (including food and fuel), to increase cash crop exports, cut investments in industry, focus investments on labor intensive agriculture, cut food price subsidies and to take other drastic actions that define the country as 'credit-worthy'.
According to the Club of Rome premier environmental think-tank and consultants to the United Nations, "The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself" (The First Global Revolution, p. 75; 1993).
Anthropogenic "climate change" and the control of carbon dioxide (energy) has deep roots in a radical, yet gravely misguided campaign to reduce the world population. A misanthropic agenda engineered by the environmental movement in the mid 1970's, which realised that doing something about "global warming" would play to quite a number of its social agendas.
The goal was advanced, most notably, by The Club Of Rome (Consultants to the UN—a group of mainly European scientists and academics, who used computer modelling to warn that the world would run out of finite resources if population growth were left unchecked . . . The Rockefeller's Club Of Rome's 1972 environmental best-seller 'The Limits To Growth,' examined five variables in the original model: world population, industrialisation, pollution, food production and resource depletion. youtube.com (Agenda 21, etc).
Have you noticed that the many groups that sought to restore constitutions and protest politicians are silent, seemingly resigned to the status quo? As it was in the days of Noah, "The earth also is corrupt before God, and filled with violence . . . for all flesh had corrupted its way upon the earth." There can be no peace or restoration of natural rights and liberty for there is now no "Absolute" in our multicultural zoo so it is important to stress that "we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in heavenly places." Keep your eyes upon Jesus and His precious promises coming to pass in real time now.
Fully Autonomous self-driving Cars get lift from Calif. Gov.
September 29, 2016 — California Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday signed a bill that for the first time allows testing on public roads of self-driving vehicles with no steering wheels, brake pedals or accelerators. A human driver as backup is not required, but the vehicles will be limited to speeds of less than 35 mph . . . Honda has been testing self-driving cars, and the firm Otto Motors, a division of a Canadian robotics company, has been working on autonomous trucks . . . Google and Apple have expressed interest in using the facility. At Bishop Ranch business park, the project involves 12-person worker-transport shuttles made by a French company called Easy Mile . . . Full story: mercurynews.com
Comment: In the fourth vision of his 1933 apocalypse William Branham saw a car that was running down beautiful highways under remote control so that people appeared seated in this car without a steering wheel and were playing some sort of a game to amuse themselves (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 321:5).
Germany: 40% under Fives now 'Migrant Background'
September 21, 2016 — One in three German residents aged under 18 have foreign roots, and the number jumps to 36% among people under five. This . . . "allows one to appreciate where [Germany] is headed" . . . the demographics of Berlin . . . people with a migration background comprise 30 per cent of residents . . . ethnic Germans are already minority in the district centre and many of the surrounding central districts . . .
The demographic statistics for this year also show that people with foreign roots are twice as likely to be unemployed than Germans and are significantly more likely to have been educated to only a lower secondary school level, or have no education background at all . . . Germans are "pacified" and "ageing".
Considering the huge number of people with foreign roots already present, their far higher fertility rate and no sign of an end to the country's policy of importing hundreds of thousands of migrants a year, Mr Paulwitz says indigenous Germans "will inevitably lose out". He also foresees that "the sexual assaults, a result of the surplus men imported, will increase".
Mr Paulwitz concludes: "A government that decides to change the ethnic and cultural structure of the country without asking its people violates the principle of popular sovereignty, constitutional lawyer Dietrich Murswiek has said . . . It's surprising that citizens have begun to fight it at the ballot, but more surprising is that so few are doing so".

Acts 6:7-14, "The Word of God kept on spreading and the number of disciples in Jerusalem increased rapidly; and a great many of the priests obeyed the faith. Now Stephen, full of grace and power did notable wonders and miracles among the people; but some who belonged to the synagogue of freed slaves, 'Freedmen' as it was called, and of the Cyrenians and of the Alexandrians and of those from Cilicia and Asia, arose and disputed with Stephen. But they could not resist the wisdom and the Spirit with which he spoke. So they instigated men to say, We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses and God. Thus they incited the people as well as the elders and the scribes, and they came upon and seized him and brought him before the Sanhedrin, and produced false witnesses who asserted, This man never ceases to speak against this holy place and the Law; for we have heard him say that this Jesus the Nazarene will demolish this place and will change the customs which Moses transmitted to us".
"Then the high priest asked, Are these accusations true?" Stephen recited the History of the Abrahamic covenant made in Mesopotamia and its development in the children of Jacob up until Solomon built God's House. Then he revealed the mob's misrepresentation of truth. Acts 7:48-54, "The Most High does not dwell in houses and temples made with hands; as says, Isaiah 66:1-2 Heaven is My throne, and earth in My footstool. What house will you build for Me, says the Lord, or what is the place of My rest? Did not My hand make all these things? You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do you. Which of the prophets have your forefathers not persecuted? And they killed those who announced beforehand the Coming of the Just One, Whom you have now betrayed and murdered. You who received the Law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it. Now when they heard these things, they were enraged, and they ground their teeth against him".
As an unregenerate Pharisee Paul held Stephen's coat while the unrighteous Israelites stoned him to death as their fathers had persecuted and killed all of God's prophets when they exposed Israel's transgressions (Matthew 23:33-37). Soon unregenerate Christians will do likewise when Christ returns to Israel and "The Word of God keeps on spreading, and the number of disciples in Jerusalem increased rapidly; and a great many of the priests obey the faith".
Zerubbabel and Nehemiah, Joshua and Ezra, and the prophets Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi headed the Israelites at the earlier and later stage in the restoration of Jerusalem; that is, in the first "seven weeks" of Daniel's seventy weeks of years (Daniel 9:25). The seventy weeks began in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes who allowed Nehemiah to go to Jerusalem in 445BC according to the commandment which went forth from God (Nehemiah 2:1-8). The earlier stage was that of building the temple, the later that of restoring the polity and rebuilding the city. Ezra the priest performed the inner work of purifying the nation of heathenish elements and reintroducing the Law while Nehemiah did the outer work of rebuilding the city and restoring government. Over the following sixty-two weeks of years the Israelites degenerated into absolute apostasy culminating in deicide. The seventieth week will begin at the end of the Gentile dispensation (Romans 11:25).
Malachi 1:1, "The burden or heavy sentence of the Word of the Lord is to Israel by the hand of Malachi," not Israel as distinct from Judah but to the small colony composed of Judah, Benjamin and members from all of the tribes who returned to Judea after the Captivity and thus became the central point of the divine promises and threatenings in the land of the Covenant. Those who remained in Babylon lost the name of Israel, while those who returned were called Israel by way of eminence, as those to whom the promises were made. See Ezra 7:10 and Nehemiah 9:1-2, and compare II Chronicles 21:2, "Jehoshaphat king of Israel," where Judah, rather than the ten dispersed tribes, is regarded the truest representative of Israel, as in II Chronicles 12:6 and 28:19 when Ahaz was king of Judah.
Malachi is the last Book of the Old Testament: in order to enflame His people with the more ardent desire for Him God sent no prophet after Malachi till the forerunner of Christ. Chapters 3:1 and 4:6a foretold the ministry of the last Old Testament prophet John the Baptist of whom Jesus declared, "Among them that are born of women there has not risen a greater than John the Baptist [for He introduced the Author and Beginner of the creation of God (John 1:1, 14; Revelation 3:14)]: notwithstanding, he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he": because he is a member of Christ's Bride and a continuation of the creation of God in the last Adam as Eve was a continuation of the creation of the first Adam (Matthew 11:11). John and the Old Testament saints are not Messiah's wife but our servants and friends of the Groom (Matthew 9:15; Mark 2:19; Luke 5:34); the 144,000 will not attend the Wedding Supper but will serve thereafter as our personal attendants (Revelation 14:4).
Malachi 1:2-3 first states moral and religious axioms, then reasoning from this foundation he refutes any objections: "I have loved you, says the Lord. But you say, How have You loved us? Is not Esau Jacob's brother? says the Lord. Yet I loved Jacob, but I have hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste to the jackals of the wilderness."
Descent from the same parents is not the ground of the same election on the part of God (Romans 9:6-11). No, we are "elect according to God's foreknowledge of the exercise of our free choice" (I Peter 1:2). These twins born of the same holy parents both served the Lord; Esau the elder was a natural man, religious but carnal, whereas Jacob was spiritual: his one objective was to obtain the birthright and the blessing of the firstborn. Election is not by natural birth otherwise God would be arbitrary and unjust.
"The Israelites thought that love meant no suffering. They thought that love meant a baby with parental care. But God said that His love was "elective" love. The proof of His love is ELECTION—that no matter what happened, His love was proven truly by the fact they were chosen unto salvation [because "God hath chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth" (II Thessalonians 2:13)]. He may commit you to death as He did Paul. He may commit you to suffering as He did Job. That is His prerogative. He is sovereign. But it is all with a purpose. If He did not have a purpose, then He would be the author of frustration not of peace. His purpose is that after we have suffered awhile we would be made perfect, be established, strengthened and settled. As Job said, "He puts strength in us" (Job 23:6b). You see He, Himself, suffered. He learned obedience by the things that He suffered. He was actually made perfect by the things that He suffered."
Hebrews 5:8-9, "Though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered; and being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey Him".
"In plain language, the very character of Jesus was perfected by suffering. And according to Paul He has left His church a measure of suffering that they, too, by their faith in God while suffering for Him, would come to a place of perfection. Why did He want this?"
James 1:2-4, "My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith works patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that you may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing".
"Why does He stand by? The reason is in Romans 8:17-18, "And if children, then heirs, heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with Him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us".
"Unless we suffer with Him we cannot reign with Him. You have to suffer to reign. The reason for this is that character simply is never made without suffering. Character is a VICTORY, not a gift. A man without character can't reign because power apart from character is satanic. But power with character is fit to rule. And since He wants us to share even His throne on the same basis that He overcame and is set down in His Father's throne, then we have to overcome to sit with Him. And the little temporary suffering we go through now is not worthy to be compared to the tremendous glory that will be revealed in us when He comes. Oh, what treasures are laid up for those who are willing to enter into His kingdom through much tribulation".
"Think it not strange concerning the fiery trials that are to try you." That is what Peter said. Is it strange that God wants us to develop a Christ-like character that comes through suffering? No sir. And we all have trials. We are all tried and chastened as sons. Not one but goes through that. The church that is not suffering, and is not being tried, hasn't got it—it isn't of God."
Hebrews 12:6, "For whom the Lord loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives. But if you are without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are you bastards, and not sons." (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 116:2-117:2).
The foundation of God's rebukes, exhortations and promises rest upon His love to His elect on condition of reciprocal love and obedience to His Word. In reply to Israel's demands for proof of His love Malachi appeals to historical facts. So whenever you feel discouraged, count the factual blessings and happiness of being a Christian, for the carnal religious of Adam's race are by nature our brethren yet they live in darkness while you understand the hidden revelation of God's Word for this hour. Jesus is speaking to you and you hear and endure difficulties, restraints and trials bearing His reproach knowing the advantages enjoyed by many carnal religious are strictly temporal, for from the foundation of the world God loved you and hated the carnal, neither of you having done any good or evil, that His purpose according to election might stand, not of works, but because of His calling (Romans 9:11).
Be of good cheer my Brother or Sister and take heart: both Israel and Edom sinned and both nations were punished, but by God's free mercy Israel was forgiven and restored, while Edom was left in the misery which it had brought upon itself by its own iniquity "and God laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the jackals of the wilderness." While the Judeans were repeopling and cultivating their land, their cities were rising from their ruins and the temple and capital were rebuilt, but Edom, which had suffered at the hand of the same enemies, had never recovered from the blow, and remained a scene of ruin and desolation, proving God's love for the Israelites.
Since Antioch, true spiritual Israel has been called Christian, the Bride of Christ who has wrestled with God, obtained mercy and thereby overcome man.
Malachi 1:4-5, "Although Edom should say, We are ruined, we will return and build the desolate places. Thus says the Lord Almighty, They shall build, but I will throw down, till they are called the wicked country, and the people against whom the Lord has indignation forever ["the people of My curse" (Isaiah 34:5)]. And your own eyes shall see this, and you will say, The Lord's great power is magnified far beyond the land of Israel".
Malachi attests to the first stage of the fulfilment of prophecy whereby Edom would be made a desolate wilderness through Nebuchadnezzar's expedition against Egypt five years after the Captivity, when he subdued Moab and Ammon; and Edom lay in his way, as foretold in Jeremiah 25:9, 15-21; 49:1-22 but Edom was evicted from his homeland by the Nabataeans and occupied the lands of Simeon, Southern Judah and portion of Benjamin during the Captivity (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, xiii. 9, 1, note 25).
Brethren, make your calling and election sure, proving all things by the Holy Bible, which is the only Absolute (Revelation 22:17-19). "The hour of temptation which shall come upon the entire world" (Revelation 3:10; 17:12) is nigh. Those who disdain the ministry of this end-time Message "in this famine and drought for hearing the Words of the Lord" and sell their title to spiritual blessings to follow their own affections rather than the Divine will, will find no place of repentance.
Let us review and plot a little historical background, remembering the Old Testament is a shadow of the New and that the last stage of the fulfilment of prophecy concerning Edom will take place in "when God smites the earth with a curse in the great and dreadful day of the Lord" (Malachi 4:5-6).
Genesis 27:38-41, When Esau learned that Jacob had stolen his blessing by deception, he cried with an exceedingly bitter cry, "pleading with his father, Have you but one blessing, my father? Bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept. And Isaac his father answered and said, Behold, your dwelling shall be [away from] the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above; and by your sword you shall live, and serve your brother; and it will come to pass when you have the dominion [potent authority in the world], you will break his yoke from off your neck. And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I kill my brother Jacob".
Esau's land being poor and surrounded by enemies, his posterity was obliged to "live by the sword, and serve his brother." They would raid Israel's borders, cut off and tax the merchants travelling with caravans between the Red Sea and Syria, but Edom was long independent. Moses noted that eight kings had reigned over Edom up to his time "before the reigning of any king over the children of Israel" (Genesis 36:19-31). A single king selected from among the dukes reigned over all Edom contemporaneously with several dukes or sheikhs. At length Saul was victorious over Edom (I Samuel 14:47), and David conquered them (II Samuel 8:14) so that they continued under tribute in the days of Joram king of Israel, until king Ahaz king of Judah when Edom revolted and recovered its freedom (II Kings 16:6; II Chronicles 28:16-17).
The history of Edom was a perpetual struggle against the supremacy of Israel. Conquered by Saul, subdued by David, repressed by Solomon (I Kings 11:14), restrained after a revolt by Amaziah (II Kings 14:7; II Chronicles 25:11), they recovered their independence in the time of Ahab (II Kings 8:20). Then followed a long struggle, until 129BC when John Hyrcanus compelled them to be circumcised and incorporated into Pharisaism "they were hereafter no other than Jews" (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, xiii. 9, 1). Edom said, "These two nations and these two countries [Israel and Judah] shall be mine, and we will possess it; whereas the Lord was there" (Ezekiel 35:10). Chutzpah! They formed an Idumean dynasty over Judea, which lasted till the complete dissolution of the Jewish state.
By their compulsory assimilation into Israel the "elder brother" was subdued and Edom ceased to be a nation, but the Idumean Herod obtained the Jewish monarchy and the persecution of True Israel was carried out in full by the Edomite bloodlust that also possessed the people (Genesis 3:15; Matthew 2:13-18; 27:25). Because the Herodians favoured and imported Roman heathenism, the circus and wild-beast fights, the rabbis consider Babylon, Rome, Edom and Christianity synonymous. Intermarriage with the Edomites "broke his yoke" and miscegenation subjected "the younger" to "the elder" whose Khazar kinsmen assimilated in AD740. This accomplished what Esau only threatened in Genesis 27:41, when Israel incorporated Edom by circumcision, and miscegenation is genocide to Adam's race today as it was in the Garden of Eden and in Noah's day. Thus the two who were separated finally come together, but the contest which began in their mother's womb continues to the end. Today Edom most certainly rules the modern Israel state and the nations of the world.
In Matthew 24:37 Jesus prophesied that miscegenation, the fruit of the 'original sin,' which is genocide to Adam's race and the besetting sin of the days of Noah, would repeat in the days of His second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming. The following declaration of intent was given in 1912 by senior British Communist theoretician, Israel Cohen:
"The 'Race-Mixing' program: We must realize that our party's most powerful weapon is racial tension . . . In America we will aim for subtle victory. While inflaming the Negro minority against the whites, we will endeavour to instil in the whites a guilt complex for their exploitation of the Negroes. [They have employed this psychology against the Germans, South Africans, Canadians and Australians in relation to their aboriginal peoples, but never against non-Semitic Israeli so-called Jews who have dispossessed native Israelite and Arab peoples. It was actually Jewry who purchased, shipped, traded, and predominantly Jewry who worked slaves, both white and Negro, in the New World]. We will aid the Negroes to rise in prominence in every walk of life, in the professions and in the world of sports and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negro will be able to intermarry with the whites and begin a process which will deliver America to our cause" (Who's Who in the World Zionist Conspiracy, James Combs, p. 40. See Newsletter 767 for further details).
On page 574 of "La Revue de Paris," (June 1, 1928), the archivist Salluste cited from A Letter from Baruch Levy to Karl Marx: "The Jewish people as a whole will become its own Messiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers [miscegenation by 'multiculturalism']' the annihilation of monarchy and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship." And in 1925 Richard Nikolaus Eijiro von Coudenhove-Kalergi stated, "We intend to turn Europe into a mixed race of Asians and Negros ruled over by the Jews" Ed]. So say Dr. Noel Ignatiev, General Wesley Clark and Earl Raab, but the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob says Adam's race should bring forth after his kind (Genesis 1:11, 25; 3:15).
Edomites are Canaanites and according to those who should know, the Last Will of Canaan, who was the first descendent of Cain born on this side of the Flood, states, "Five things did Canaan charge his sons: love one another, love robbery, love lewdness, hate your masters, and do not speak the truth" (Talmud, Peshachim 113b; Matthew 23:33-36, and see: The First Time I heard of Barack, and the current Jewish President's subservience to the Elders).
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, ". . . We will openly reveal our identity with the races of Asia and Africa. I can state with assurance that the last generation of white children is now being born. Our Control Commissions will, in the interests of peace and wiping out inter-racial tensions, forbid the whites to mate with whites. The white women must cohabit with members of the dark races, the white men with black women. Thus the white race will disappear, for mixing the dark with the white means the end of the white man, and our most dangerous enemy will become only a memory . . ."
The full text of this speech was originally made available to Common Sense (N.J., U.S.A) by Eustace Mullins and brought to the attention of Captain William Guy Carr by the Canadian Intelligence Service who published it verbatim in Pawns in the Game (pp. 104-106) which should be in your library. This is one of dozens of similar quotes by prominent Jews like Theodore Herzl, Rabbi Reichorn, Dr. Oscar Levy, Bernard Lazare, Rabbi Stephen Wise and Maurice Samuel who were all inspired by the Talmud.
Not only is miscegenation between Adam's race and Cain's race genocide to Adam's race, adding to and taking from God's unchanging Word transforms it from eternal Life to death (John 6:63; Revelation 22:17-18). History and Jesus' prophecy in Revelation 2 declare without contention the Judaeo-Roman Universal church was organized at the first Nicaea Council in AD325 between pagan Roman Emperor Constantine and non-Semitic self-styled Jews. Constantine's objective was to gain patronage over and from the growing Christian community and to unify his Empire spiritually. He was, after all the head of religion with potential for deification. The objective of so-called Jews was to organize and establish a clerical hierarchy that would enable them to destroy the faith from within. The Judaeo-Catholic false church is an impersonation of the Israelitish temple worship and through Rome Jewry organized Islam, more a means to totalitarian political power than a religion.
Islam burst forth in the seventh century: Mohammed's military successes ensured few refused his evangelism. Palestine, Syria, and Egypt, once the most popularly Christian areas in the world, quickly succumbed. By the eighth century, Muslim armies had conquered all of Christian North Africa and Spain. In the eleventh century, the Seljuk Turks conquered Asia Minor (modern Turkey), which had been Christian since the time of St. Paul. The colossus of the medieval world was Islam, not Christendom. Muslim misrule finally destroyed Edom's prosperity for Edom was Jewry. The Crusades were defensive but victories were short-lived. Between 1096 and 1272 there were nine crusades to wrest control of Jerusalem from the Muslims and to protect pilgrims. The Protestant Reformation, which rejected the papacy and the doctrine of indulgence, made Crusades unthinkable for many Europeans, thus leaving the fighting to the Judaeo-Catholics who seek to rule earthly Jerusalem whereas Christians are bound for "the heavenly Jerusalem." In 1571, a Holy League, which was itself a Crusade, defeated the Ottoman fleet at Lepanto. Military victories were rare but the Muslim threat was neutralized economically.
Let us now consider the last stage of the fulfilment of prophecy concerning Edom which will take place in the "last week" of seven years—"the great and dreadful day of the Lord when God smites the earth with a curse" (Malachi 4:5-6) at the end of the Gentile dispensation. Returning to Malachi 1:4-5 "Although Edom should say, We are ruined, we will return and build the desolate places; thus saith the Lord Almighty, They shall build, but I will throw down, until they are called the wicked country, and the people against whom the Lord has indignation forever ["the people of My curse" (Isaiah 34:5)]. And your own eyes shall see this, and you will say, The Lord's great power is magnified far beyond the land of Israel".
Although "Edom was ruined" he began to establish colonies in Palestine in the late nineteenth century and the Jewish people were declared a nation at the UNSCOP Committee at Lake Success on May 6 (UN docs. A/C.I/P.V.46-57 (May 6-13), since when Edom has "returned and built the desolate places."
By general consensus in concert with Malachi's THUS SAITH THE LORD, Edom's modern Israel State "is called the wicked country, and the people against whom the Lord has indignation forever." 2013 Globalscan of 22 countries for BBC Israel fourth most negative; 75% most evil; Gallup Poll young Americans overwhelmingly support Palestine; Most evil country 53% Israel; Top ten most hated countries, USA followed by Israel; Israel is voted the most evil country, and so-on. Jesus Messiah foretold that "spiritually the great city Jerusalem as Sodom and Egypt" at this time (Revelation 11:8).
In respect to blessings, the True Israel is the redeemed in Christ, so Edom's curse is not limited to his progeny or to the heathen world, it is attached to the heathenish or antichristian world that has no share in the Messianic salvation (Malachi 4:6; Revelation 13:8; 17:8; 19:20-21). After the Gentile dispensation God will be turn an election of 144,000 Israelites of the pure lineage of Jacob, whose martyrdom will precede the consummation. Since 1948 Edom has built, but at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial "God will throw down" Edom when Mount Olivet cleaves, demolishing the Dome of the Rock, igniting the 'hot stage' of World War III and the defeat, rape and rapine of Jerusalem and Judah. This is necessary to prompt the mass exodus of Edomite and other non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Israeli Jews to enable the children of Jacob to return for redemption in the land of the covenant without "fear of the Jews" (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 27:13; 49:17; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 37:14; 39:27-29; Joel 3:1; Micah 5:3; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31; Revelation 12:14).
Not to diminish Edom's perpetual hatred of Israel but Isaiah 34 and Isaiah 63:1-6 describe Edom as representative of the whole world's hostility to the Israelites after the end of the Gentile dispensation because the whole earth will rejoice at the utter defeat of the modern Israel state (Isaiah 13:6-16; Zechariah 14:2; Revelation 16:19). This appears from the fact that the desolation of Edom is put in contrast (Ezekiel 35:14) with the rejoicing of the whole earth in Ezekiel 36:3-5-7 and Edom is coupled with "the residue of the heathen." Zechariah 12:2-3 prophesies that "all the people of the earth will be gathered together against Jerusalem" (Daniel 2:34-35, 44-46; Matthew 21:44).
Jeremiah 25:1-29 fortold the Captivity and Babylon's subsequent destruction. When Brother Branham quoted these verses he said, "Hear that prophet cry out, "This whole land shall be desolate!" And not to impersonate this great servant of God, but I prophesy that this whole nation [of America] shall become desolate. God will punish this nation for her sins . . . You see the history repeating itself?" He spoke of scriptural references to the sinking of Los Angeles, the nuclear annihilation of the United States, and explained that as the first generation of exiles had just about died out with only two years of Captivity remaining, so had the Pentecostals almost died out. And as God had commissioned the Prophet Daniel to prepare the Judeans for repatriation, He has sent us Gentiles a prophet to restore the apostolic faith, finish the mystery of God and call us out from denominationalism into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. "If we can find out what these seventy of weeks are, we know when the consummation is . . ." (Gabriel's Instructions to Daniel, p. 16:82-107; An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:3).
Malachi 1:5 prophesied, "Your own eyes shall see this, [that God's love is elective], and you will say, The Lord's great power is magnified far beyond the land of Israel." But because "blindness in part is happened to Israel [they will not see or understand] until after the fulness of the Gentiles has come in," and not until the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week.
Regardless of Edom's dominion over Israel from their assimilation under priest-king John Hyrcanus, Israel is "as the apple of His eye." Edom, sin and all sinners will be destroyed "in the day of the Lord's vengeance, and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion" (Isaiah 34:8).
In Deuteronomy 32:5-21, 39, Moses prophesied, "Israel's unregenerate offspring have acted corruptly toward God, they are no longer His children because of sin's stain: they are a perverse and crooked generation. Do you thus repay the Lord, O foolish and unwise people? Is He not your father who created, formed and established you?"
"Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask your father, and He will show you; your elders, and they will tell you. When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, when He separated the sons of Adam, He fixed the bounds of the peoples according to the number of the sons of Israel. For the Lord's portion is His people; Jacob His allotted heritage. He found him in a desert land, in the howling waste of the wilderness; He encircled him, he cared for him, he kept him as the apple of His eye. As the eagle stirs up her nest, fluttering over her young, spreading her wings to catch them and bearing them on her wings, so the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no foreign god with him."
"He made them ride on the high places of the earth and they ate the fruits of the fields; and He made him suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock; curds from the herd, and milk from the flock, with fat of lambs and rams, herds of Bashan and goats, with the finest of wheat; and of the blood of the grapes you drank wine."
"But the ideal character of Israel grew fat, and kicked: you grew fat, became plump and sleek; then he forsook God who made him, and scoffed at the Rock of His salvation. They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods; they provoked Him to anger with abominations. They sacrificed to demons which were no gods; to gods they had never known, to new gods before whom your fathers had never stood in awe. You were unmindful of the Rock that begot you, and you forgot the God that formed you."
"And when the Lord saw it and spurned them, because of the provocation of his sons and daughters. He said, I will hide My face from them, I will see what their end will be, for they are a perverse generation, children who know no loyalty. They have provoked Me to jealousy with their false gods; vexed Me with their idols. So I will move them to jealousy with those who are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation . . . See now that I, even I, am He, and there is no God beside Me: I kill and I make alive; I wound, and I heal; and there is none that can deliver out of My hand".
After the resurrection and translation of Christ's Bride of all Ages, the Lord will anoint two Israelite prophets to prepare the nation of Israel to be born-again in one day—all 144,000 of them. Micah 5:2 explains that [from the foundation of the world] God's plan of redemption is settled in One of Shem's line descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, of the Tribe of Judah, of the House of David, born in Bethlehem. And as His advent drew nigh His very parentage was foretold (Matthew 1:1-17; Luke 1:26-35; 2:1-7), concentrating all the scattered rays of prophecy in Jesus, as their focus. Hebrews 1:1-2, "God of old spoke to our fathers at various times and in different ways by the prophets; but in these last days He has spoken to us in His Son, whom He has appointed Heir of all things, through whom also He made the world".
Micah 5:3-5, "Therefore God will give up Israel (7:13) to their foes until the time when the nation that is in travail is born-again, and the last elect remnants of Israel have returned to the land of the Covenant (Deuteronomy 32:26-43; Isaiah 10:20-22; Daniel 12:1). And He shall stand and feed His flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the Name of the Lord His God; and they will remain, because at that time He will be greatly honoured to the ends of the earth. And this One will be our peace" (Malachi 1:5). This will be Israel's recognition of Christ's second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming and their new birth will usher in the millennium. nl941.htm
