Bible Believers' Newsletter 972
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Good to see you again, thanks for joining our fellowship.
In our main article we press into our study of Revelation 7 and Israel's redemption as a nation in one day. This takes us to Revelation 8, 9, 11, 12, 13 and 14 with supporting prophecies from Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel and the Gospels which place fulfilled history in context with the Scripture that we may recognize with certainty those prophecies that have been fulfilled already with the objective of recognizing our day and its Message to confirm our position in the Body. Only in this way can we understand how our lives might become written epistles of "the present Truth" . . . what Jesus is doing now . . . that He may gather glory to Himself.
We must have the Token of the Life of Christ on display; the Token of "that which is perfect or complete," not the Token of "that which was in part during the Church Ages and is done away" (I Corinthians 13:10). Today's study is simple, straightforward and well documented, however it requires a clear head with thoughtful contemplation of Scripture beyond reading and learning to understanding, which is faith.
This week's news items center on the united States and its evolution toward Revelation 13:14-15.
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.
US drops largest Non-Nuke Bomb in Afghanistan
April 14, 2017 — For the first time ever, the United States has used the GBU-43 Massive Ordinance Air Blast (MOAB) bomb, a 21,000 lb conventional bomb, in a non-test environment in Afghanistan's Nangarhar Province . . . said to have been dropped on a system of caves and tunnels that are used by ISIS forces . . . [it] is not designed to penetrate underground positions . . . as yet unclear why they decided to use the MOAB in this case instead of something more commonly used. Full story: mintpressnews.com

Doctors for Human Rights accuse White Helmets of PR Stunt to trigger War in Syria
April 12, 2017 — The White Helmets are adored by western audiences, but loathed by those who have done their due diligence to recognized that the group is nothing more than ISIS in an NGO disguise.
Now a bombshell analysis from the Swedish NGO Doctors for Human Rights (SWEDHR) accuses the Syria Civil Defense (aka the White Helmets), of falsifying information about its "humanitarian work" in Syria. According to Swedish human rights activists, so-called "rescue" procedures filmed in White Helmets propaganda videos, is a complete staged hoax. The procedures in the video and photos below have been carefully analyzed to show that they were carried out on a dead child, who may have been killed by the White Helmets in order to film the footage . . .

Striking Contradiction between the Pope, St. Peter and William Branham
When John fell down to worship Brother Branham in Revelation 22:6-9 he said, "Do it not: for I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren." And "when Cornelius fell at Peter's feet and worshipped him. Peter lifted him up, saying, I am not a god, I am a man like yourself" (Acts 10:25-26). In a striking contradiction, the Pope, the so-called Successor of St. Peter and Chief of the Apostles has priests prostrate themselves before him during ordination in St. Peter's Basilica which is allegedly the tomb of Peter who was never in Rome alive or dead. Apostate Jews in league with Emperor Constantine organized the Judaeo-Roman Universal church with its depraved sexual and fertility symbols from the ancient pagan religions in common with Freemasonry. Apostate Rome devised and clandestinely controls Islam, whose crescent moon and star represent the conjunction between the Sun and the Moon in sexual union, Allah being the ancient Moon god; Rothchild's crest that appears on the flag of modern Israel, and the eight-pointed Star of Islam also illustrate the male-female union. The mysteries of ancient Babylon pervade all religion and cultures from which Jesus' "little flock" is entirely separated. What makes Islam so different?
US-Led Coalition Airstrikes against ISIS-held Chemical Weapons Depot, Hundreds Killed
April 13, 2017 — According to the Syrian News Agency SANA, the US led Coalition has carried out targeted airstrikes against a chemical weapons depot in Hatla, east of Deir Ezzor. The depot is held by ISIS-Daesh terrorists:
The General Command of the Army and Armed Forces said that the aircrafts of the so-called "US-led International Alliance" on Wednesday between the hour 17:30 and 17:50 carried out an airstrike against a position of ISIS terrorists that includes a large number of foreign mercenaries in the village of Hatla to the east of Deir Ezzor, causing a white cloud that became yellow as a result of the explosion of a huge store that includes a large amount of toxic materials. Several hundred deaths were recorded:
In a statement issued Thursday, the Army General Command stressed that the airstrike of the "US-led International Alliance" killed hundreds, including large numbers of civilians, due to the suffocation resulted from inhaling toxic substances . . . the Syrian military confirms that the ISIS-Daesh "rebels" (who are supported covertly by the Western military alliance and its Middle East allies including Saudi Arabia and Qatar) are in possession of toxic chemical weapons.
Previous media reports (CNN) confirm that they Syrian opposition rebels were trained on contract to the Pentagon by Western specialists in the use of chemical weapons. A comprehensive 2013 UN report confirms that the opposition rebels used chemical weapons against SAA soldiers and civilians . . . Thursday attack followed Russia's veto on Wednesday of a UN Security Council resolution regarding the April 4 chemical weapons attack. The vote on the Security Council resolution drafted by Britain, France and the United States was 10 in favour, Russia and Bolivia against, with China, Kazakhstan and Ethiopia abstaining . . .

Khan Sheikhoun Syria Nerve Agent Attack did not Occur
April 18, 2017 — Khan Sheikhoun Syria the Nerve Agent Attack that did not occur. Dr. Theodore Postal, Professor Emeritus of Science, Technology and National Security Policy, Massachusetts Institute of Technology demonstrates Obama 2013 and Trump 2017 White House Intelligence Reports on alleged Sarin gas attacks in Syria drive.google.com set by US proxy invaders and NOT by Syria.
After detailed decimation of President Trump's 'intelligence' 'justifying' his invasion of Syria, the MIT specialist on such intelligence-analysis, Dr. Theodore Postol, concludes: I have worked with the intelligence community in the past, and I have grave concerns about the politicization of intelligence that seems to be occurring with more frequency in recent times—but I know that the intelligence community has highly capable analysts in it. And if those analysts were properly consulted about the claims in the White House document they would have not approved the document going forward . . . report cannot be correct . . . not properly vetted by the intelligence community. This is a very serious matter. Full story: washingtonsblog.com

Electronic Weapons, RF Radiation, Remote Manipulation of the Human Nervous System
April 13, 2017 — When encoding human speech into pulsed microwaves—the procedure is similar to radio broadcasting (human speech only needs to be converted to pulsed microwaves)—it is possible to transmit either audible or inaudible (ultrasound) messages into the human brain. A human being cannot hear ultrasound messages, but the brain perceives them and a person's behaviour can be controlled and manipulated in this way. The density of electromagnetic energy needed to remotely control the activity of the human nervous system does not exceed the standards set by the European Union. Let's just remember that cell phone signals can penetrate into the human brain.
A skilful radio amateur is capable to produce a transmitter able to remotely control the activity of the human nervous system for criminal groups which could then endanger the mental and physical health of people in their surroundings. They could easily put drivers to sleep by pulsing microwaves into the sleep frequencies or with more sophisticated pulsing, they could stop a person's heart beat and make him or she die. It is known that Allen H. Frey produced heart attacks in frogs with pulsed microwaves.
At the same time a growing number of people worldwide complain that they are exposed to such harmful radiations, but do not have any means of defense against their use . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
UN: US, UK, France & South Korea in violation of Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty
April 17, 2017 — North Korea was among the 123 United Nations member states who voted to support the resolution to create a legally binding treaty to prohibit and eliminate nuclear weapons. This is the very same resolution opposed by the Obama Administration . . . The categorical refusal by the US, the UK, France and the ROK to participate in this ongoing United Nations conference is an egregious act of bad faith, a gross violation of Article VI of the NPT, and a violation of the core purpose of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty itself . . .
In flagrant violation of Article 1 of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, the US is, with impunity, transferring its B61-12 nuclear bombs to the territories of five non-nuclear weapon states participating in NATO: Belgium, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Turkey. NATO itself is thereby in violation of the NPT . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Australia beckons a War with China
April 12, 2017 — Australia is sleep-walking into confrontation with China. Wars can happen suddenly in an atmosphere of mistrust and provocation, especially if a minor power, like Australia, abandons its independence for an "alliance" with an unstable superpower.
The United States is at a critical moment. Having exported its all-powerful manufacturing base, run down its industry and reduced millions of its once-hopeful people to poverty, principal American power today is brute force. When Donald Trump launched his missile attack on Syria—following his bombing of a mosque and a school—he was having dinner in Florida with the President of China, Xi Jinxing.
Trumps attack on Syria had little to do with chemical weapons. It was, above all, to show his detractors and doubters in Washington's war-making institutions—the Pentagon, the CIA, the Congress—how tough he was and prepared to risk a war with Russia. He had spilled blood in Syria, a Russian protectorate; he was surely now on the team. The attack was also meant to say directly to President Xi, his dinner guest: this is how we deal with those who challenge the top dog.
China has long received this message. In its rise as the world's biggest trader and manufacturer, China has been encircled by 400 US military bases—a provocation described by a former Pentagon strategist as "a perfect noose".
This is not Trump's doing. In 2011, President Barack Obama flew to Australia to declare, in an address to parliament, what became known as the "pivot to Asia": the biggest build-up of US air and naval forces in the Asia Pacific region since the Second World War. The target was China. America had a new and entirely unnecessary enemy. Today, low-draft US warships, missiles, bombers, drones operate on China's doorstep.
In July, one of the biggest US-led naval exercises ever staged, the biennial Operation Talisman Sabre, will rehearse a blockade of the sea lanes through which run China's commercial lifelines. Based on a Air-Sea Battle Plan for war with China, which prescribes a pre-emptive "blinding" attack, this "war game" will be played by Australia.
This is not urgent news. Rather, the news is the "threat" that China poses to "freedom of navigation" in the South China Sea by building airstrips on disputed reefs and islets. The reason why—the "noose"—is almost never mentioned.
Australia in the 21st century has no enemies. Not even a melancholy colonial imagination that conjured Asia falling down on us as if by the force of gravity can conjure a single contemporary enemy. No one wants to bomb or occupy Australia. Well, not yet.
As Australian political, military and intelligence establishments are integrated into the war plans of a growing American obsession—the shift of trading, banking and development power to the east—Australia is making an enemy it never bargained for. A frontline has already been marked at Pine Gap, the spy base the CIA set up near Alice Springs in the 1960s, which targets America's enemies, beckoning, of course, massive retaliation.
Last October, the opposition Labor Party's defence spokesman, Richard Marles, delighted the US admirals and generals at a conference in Hawaii by demanding that Australian naval commanders should have the authority to provoke nuclear-armed China in the disputed South China Sea. What is it about some Australian politicians whose obsequiousness takes charge of their senses?
While the coalition government of Malcolm Turnbull has resisted such a clear and present danger, at least for now, it is building a $195 billion war arsenal, one of the biggest on earth—including more than $15 billion to be spent on American F-35 fighters already distinguished as hi-tech turkeys. Clearly, this is aimed at China.
This view of Australia's region is shrouded by silence. Dissenters are few, or frightened. Anti-China witch hunts are not uncommon. Indeed, who, apart from former prime minister Paul Keating, speaks out with an unambiguous warning? Who tells Australians that, in response to the "noose" around it, China has almost certainly increased its nuclear weapons posture from low alert to high alert?
And who utters the heresy that Australians should not have to "choose" between America and China: that we should, for the first time in our history, be truly modern and independent of all great power: that we should play a thoughtful, imaginative, non-provocative, diplomatic role to help prevent a catastrophe and so protect "our interests," which are the lives of people.

Revelation 7 Part IV
Revelation 8:13 is a paraphrase between the Fourth and Fifth Trumpets announcing judgments under the following three Woe-Trumpets more calamitous than those under the first Four Trumpets. Israel's Trumpets imply natural war in concert with the first Four and the Sixth Seals which mean spiritual warfare. With the exception of the Fifth and Seventh Trumpets such judgments strike only Israelites (and of course their impersonators). Under the Fifth Trumpet Christians sealed with the Spirit are protected (Revelation 9:4). Three Woes strike the earth in three World Wars under the last Three Trumpets causing her birth pains for cleansing prior to the millennium. The first Two Woes under the Fourth Seal were "the beginnings of sorrows" or birth pains (Matthew 24:8), the Third Woe under the Sixth Seal will bring the consummation of life in Armageddon.
Under the First Trumpet Rome was invaded and governed by barbarians who divided her Empire into the ten kingdoms that Daniel 2:40-45; 7:8-28 and Revelation 12:3; 13:1; 17:7, 12-17 foresaw. This foreran almost a thousand years of Dark Ages in the Thyatira Church Age (606 – 1520); whereas Israelites "the third part of men," and Jews, once represented the majority of Christians, the Gentile Reformation of the corrupt Judaeo-Roman Catholic system of false worship saw their numbers diminish to a tiny minority.
Revelation 8:13, "I looked, and I heard a lone eagle flying to the meridian altitude of heaven [the sun in the zenith] where it can be seen and heard worldwide, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the [Gospel] Trumpet of the angels [of the Reformation]: [Martin Luther, John Wesley, and William Branham] which are yet to sound!"
This solitary eagle was William Branham, the Prophet of Revelation 1:1 to whom Jesus revealed "The Revelation of Jesus Christ" which he signified to John. And we know that throughout the Book of Revelation John types us, Christ's end-time Bride, because Jesus did not break the Seven Seals, open the Book and unfold its mysteries until all Seven Church Ages and His mediation for "that which was in part" was fulfilled and redemption was over. "And in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, William Branham, the mystery of God was finished" (Revelation 10:7).
The eagle is a symbol of vengeance in Deuteronomy 28:49, Hosea 8:1 and Habakkuk 1:8. In the past I have variously identified this angel as William Branham or the living creature with the face of an eagle that announced the Fourth Seal under which the Laodicean saints and Christ's end time Bride are born-again. You will recall that in the visions when Brother Branham saw the 'third pull,' which was the opening of the Word, he was "standing in the s-u-n [as in Revelation 19:17] preaching to who wouldn't have it." The third flight was angels and in the Seventh Seal he identified one with himself (Blasphemous Names, p. 41:2-5; Reproach for the Word, p. 8; Sirs is this the Time, p. 50:2; 29:4; The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 565:4; 578:1-2; The Easter Seal, p. 27:182-186).
According to Easton's Bible Dictionary, Eagle (Heb. 'nesher,' properly the griffon vulture or great vulture, so called from its tearing its prey with its beak), referred to for its swiftness of flight (Deuteronomy 28:49; II Samuel 1:23), its mounting high in the air (Job 39:27), its strength (Psalms 103:5), its setting its nest in high places (Jeremiah 49:16), and its far-sighted vision [like God and His prophets] (Job 39:27-30).
This "ravenous bird" is a symbol of those nations whom God employs and sends forth to do a work of destruction, sweeping away whatever is decaying and putrescent (Isaiah 46:11; Ezekiel 39:4; Deuteronomy 28:49; Jeremiah 4:13; 48:40). It is said that the eagle sheds his feathers in the beginning of spring, and with fresh plumage assumes the appearance of youth. To this, allusion is made in Psalms 103:5 and Isaiah 40:31. God's care over his people is likened to that of the eagle in training its young to fly (Exodus 19:4; Deuteronomy 32:11-12).
It was our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who allowed Himself to be pierced and bleed to become a "carcass" before He was resurrected. The "eagles," His faithful disciples, gathered around Jesus Christ to feed when He was resurrected as does Christ's end-time Bride, "For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together" (Matthew 24:28).
Brother Branham said, "It isn't me. It wasn't the seventh angel, oh, no; it was a manifestation of the Son of man. It wasn't the angel, his Message; it was the mystery that God unfolded. It's not a man; it's God. The angel was not the Son of man; he was a messenger from the Son of man. The Son of man is Christ. He's the One that you're feeding on. You're not feeding on a man. A man, his words will fail, but you're feeding on the unfailing Body-Word of the Son of man. If you haven't fed fully on every Word to give yourself strength to fly above all these denominations and things of the world, will you at this time do it, while we pray" (The Anointed Ones at the End-time, p. 59:270)?
Revelation 10:1 – 11:13 is a parenthesis between the Sixth and Seventh Trumpets foretelling the second or 'parousia' Coming of the Son of Man upon Mount Sunset in the Coronado Forest, Arizona in March 1963 with the unsealed Book of Redemption open in His hand, symbolically denouncing judgment on Papal Rome, the beast from the sea, and on the united States, the beast from the earth, which will morph into her Protestant image when church and state unite for peace negotiations after the brief 'hot stage' of World War III. Then in Revelation 11:1-13 the angel Brother Branham previews the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week and the ministry and martyrdom of the two Israelite prophets.
Revelation 11:14 reads from Revelation 9:21 with the blowing of the Seventh Trump at the end of the Gentile dispensation. Revelation 12:1-6 is a parenthesis showing the 144,000 Israelites that Jesus Messiah was received by the elect of His day who were born-again by the doctrine of the twelve apostles and crossed from the Law over into grace. It explains how, under Imperial Rome, Satan deceived and apostatised the Israelite priesthood, elders and aristocracy with his Talmudic tales (Matthew 15:1-9) and recalls how Judah's Edomite King Herod sought to kill Jesus as soon as He was born. He grew to manhood, and being crucified performed the duty of kinsman Redeemer for Adam and his race according to Scripture, He resurrected and was seen by many witnesses, and after forty days was caught up to heaven.
God allowed blood Israelites to be blinded by apostate rabbis so that He could call a people for His Name, a Bride for Jesus Messiah from "whomsoever will of Adam's race," Israelite or Gentile, typed by the crossed fishes of Cancer in the Zodiac, God's first Bible, the Gospel in the Stars that shows the Gospel passing from Israel who rejected and crucified their Messiah to us Gentiles (Genesis 9:27; 17:4-8; 48:13-19; Deuteronomy 32:21; Isaiah 11:10-11; 54:1-5; 56:1-8; Amos 9:11-12; Malachi 1:11; Acts 15; Romans 4:1-10; 9:6-8). In His longsuffering grace the Lord made provision under the Fifth Seal whereby genuine blood Israelites martyred during the Gentile dispensation for obedient observance of the Commandments of God, not self-styled Jews under their Talmudic counterfeit, may preserve their names on the Book of Life and be granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment (Revelation 6:9-11).
This provision of grace under the Fifth Seal extends from Calvary to the close of the Gentile dispensation when the Seventh Trumpet, Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial manifest and Los Angeles sinks beneath the Pacific: it is active worldwide, not only in the Land of the Covenant. The Old Testament type is found in Genesis 43:15 – 45:7 where Joseph revealed Himself to his treacherous brothers in Egypt with forgiveness and the preservation of life. The Fifth Seal is still active under the successors of Judah's Edomite King Herod the Great—the Cainite Edomite and Khazar-led apostate (once) Christian US, UK, NATO, other colonies of the Empire of the 'City of London' and occupied nations (such as Israel, Germany and Japan) that are right now prosecuting genocide against blood Israelites in the Middle East and North Africa under MI6, CIA and MOSSAD Black Flag operations such as the "Arab Spring" offensive, al Qaida, ISIS, Daesh, al Nusra, White Helmet murderers, etc., It is Muslim nations such as Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, Iran, Yemen, the Sudan and Ethiopia whence genuine blood Israelites will be gathered to the Land of their Covenant by Israel's two prophets after the close of the Gentile dispensation (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:14; 27:13; 49:17; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 37:14; 39:27; Micah 5:3; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31). Brother Branham said that after the dispensation change, "Many Jews [he means the few Israelites] in the United States (which they won't escape from)" (COD, p. 97:235).
Revelation 12:1-12 is a parenthesis in which verses 1, 6 and 7 refer to the beginning and ending of the Gentile dispensation. In verse 6 "the woman [Church] fled into the wilderness of Gentile nations, where she had a place prepared by God that the Gentiles should nourish her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days." Brother Branham said, "When her man Child was caught up to sit on God's throne, . . . the woman fled into the wilderness where she was taken care of for a thousand two hundred and three score days, to exactly the date of Plymouth Rock, exactly, where the church came over here for freedom of religion, and she established here" (Mark of the Beast, #26:3, 22:157) just as Israel wandered in the wilderness and established in Canaan Land. That would be 1620. Deducting 1260 regular 365.25-day years from 1620, we come to AD360 which is the date of the Council at Constantinople where the Nicene Creed was issued as the Catholic faith. That's historical comment, not a doctrinal statement. "God had made the promise to the church (to the woman), to come into this country"America (Jezebel Religion, 7:53; The Woman Clothed with the Sun).
The Seventh Trump sounds in Revelation 12:7. In verses 8-12 Satan is cast out of the heavenlies and the resurrection of the sleeping saints commences, Church Age by Church Age. Many of these saints had been martyred for their Christian testimony (Revelation 20:4). Meanwhile the members of Christ's end-time Bride will manifest that they are the Sons of God, change in the atoms then rise to meet the Lord in the Air.
In verses 13-14 persecution comes upon the true Church, and against the foolish virgin after our home-going when all religions are called to unite, ostensibly against Communism, after Muslims conquer Israel following earthquakes that demolish the Dome of the Rock when for the safety of humanity Russia confiscates Israel's nuclear weapons, navy and air force and invades mainland USA. True blood Israelites of Jacob's line will no longer be welcome to live in the nations of their Islamic hosts, and led by two men anointed by the Spirit that endued Moses and Elijah, they will "fly into the [heathen] wilderness to her place," the Land of their Covenant (Matthew 24:31) vacated by multitudes of Israeli self-styled Jews after the brief 'hot stage' of World War III (Zechariah 14:1-2; Revelation 16:19). Here 144,000 elect Israelites will be nourished spiritually by the Message of their two prophets in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Revelation 11:3-13).
Revelation 12:15-17 describes the second half of the Week following the martyrdom of their two Hebrew prophets; thereafter "the mark of the beast" will be forced on pain of death by Rome's once Protestant image, the united States of America.
Revelation 13:1-10 describes the transformation of Imperial Rome that inherited the attributes of the three Gentile World Empires it succeeded. When mortally wounded by the barbarian invaders it revived as Papal Rome which is predestinated to rule Lucifer's one world government after the close of the Gentile dispensation. Of all the ancient empires, Rome alone has prolonged its power over men through baptized heathenism.
Verses 11-15 trace the history of the united States of America which was settled for freedom of Christian worship. Whereas Rome rose out of the sea of people and tribes and nations, the united States rose up as a lamb in a relatively unpopulated earth. Its two horns symbolise the separation of church and state inasmuch as it does not have a state religion like the Church of England, but its appearance was deceptive for the lamb spoke like the Roman Dragon "and exercises the same absolute and arrogant power in the presence of the first beast." In short the USA is subservient to and a supporter of the intellectual force of Rome's earthly wisdom and unmitigated worldliness and will force the earth and all who dwell in it to serve the first wild beast in its papal incarnation as the Judaeo-Roman Universal church whereby Imperial Rome's death stroke was healed. And he does carnal great signs, so that he even makes nuclear fire to descend out of the heaven to the earth in the sight of men [as upon Hiroshima and Nagasaki], bringing people and nations to obeisance. Contrast this with the 'third pull' in the Presence of God by Israel's Moses and Elijah from whose lips fire consumes any man who would do them harm (II Kings 1:10-12; Revelation 11:4-5).
The apostate (once) Protestant US image of the beast once empowered by Roman gold to refinance her dollar will kill all who refuse the mark of the beast in their right hand which signifies subservience to Rome's will, or in their forehead which signifies receiving Rome's trinity dogma (Revelation 13:14-18).
Revelation 14:1-5, "I looked and saw the Lamb standing on Mount Zion with 144,000 who had [the revelation of] His Name [which is] also His Father's Name written in their foreheads" (John 5:43). Called, chosen and born-again as a nation in one day (Isaiah 66:8) pending martyrdom in Revelation 15, they number 12,000 of each Israel's twelve Tribes as Jesus prophesied in Revelation 7:4-8.
"And I heard a voice out of heaven like the sound of many waters [the 144,000] and like the sound of loud thunder: and the voice which I heard was as of harpers harping with their harps: and they sing a new song [the revelation of the Seven Trumpets, Seven Vials and Three Woes, King Jesus and His Queen] before [not in] the throne, and before the four living creatures, and the elders: and no one was able to learn that song but the hundred and forty-four thousand, who were purchased from the earth. These have not defiled themselves with women [churches]; for they are virgins [eunuchs who attend Christ's Bride in contrast to the Great Whore and her harlot daughter churches (Revelation 17:5)]. It is these who follow the Lamb wherever He may go, these were purchased from mankind, a first fruit unto God and the Lamb. No falsehood was ever found on their lips, for they are blameless—being in Him".
Matthew 24:14, "This Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness to all nations; and then shall the end come" and its prophetic purpose be accomplished (Romans 10:17-18; Colossians 1:5-6, 23). The Church was sealed in Revelation 3:22 and left earth with Christ's end-time Bride years before Revelation 14:1-5 which takes place in the latter part of the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. The Gospel is finally preached to the souls in prison now perchance some may repent and others left without excuse "as it was in the days of Noah." "For the hour of His judgment [upon the beast, his worshippers and Mystery, Babylon the Great] is come" (Revelation 3:10; 13:8; 14:7; 17:11 – 18:20; 19:19-20; 20:10).
In Revelation 14:6-12 after the close of the Gentile dispensation the Messages of ALL three angels are addressed "to the world" . . . from the meridian heaven where at high noon the sun shines visibly to people of every nation, tribe and tongue (Matthew 24:14; Revelation 19:17).
Trumpets and Vials follow the Messages to the Church Ages. The first Four and the Sixth Trumpet chastised "the third part of man"—Israelites and impersonators "who say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie" (Revelation 3:9). The plagues of the Fifth Trumpet followed Martin Luther's Message of "justification by grace through faith alone" which is the foundation of faith (Habakkuk 2:4; Romans 1:17). The restoration of this revelation exposed the folly of Judaeo-Roman Catholicism, regenerated the saints of the Sardis Church Age and alerted Luther to The Jews and Their Lies which "make the commandment of God of none effect by their tradition" (Matthew 15:1-9). At the First Nicaea Council in AD325 they organized Judaeo-Roman Catholicism which Jesus calls "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH," causing the nominal church to commit adultery with Talmudic Judaism, pagan superstitions and idolatry. Thus the plague under the Fifth Trumpet struck not only "the third part of men" but "all who did not have the Seal of God in their foreheads"—Judaeo Roman Catholics and Jews profess faith without faith and insist that by "good works" they can earn salvation.
After the Fourth Trumpet John entered a new vision, "And . . . insert your name . . . beheld and heard a solitary eagle flying in the zenith [as in Revelation 19:17] where it can be seen and heard worldwide, prophesy with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to ungodly earthbound men of the world because of the [condemnations of the] other Messages of the Gospel Trumpet of the three angels, [Martin Luther (Revelation 3:2-3), John Wesley (Revelation 3:8-9), and William Branham (Revelation 3:15-17)], which are yet to sound [their Messages of justification by grace through faith in the Sardis Church Age, with Scriptural holiness added in the Philadelphian Church Age, and the baptism with the Holy Ghost the restoration of the Supernatural by the revelation Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever restored in the Laodicean Church Age]!"
An 'investigation judgment' begun in Laodicea will continue to the consummation to see who really believes the Messages of the angels sent to reform the Judaeo-Roman system of worship, giving the non-elect of Adam's race opportunity to repent and preserve their name on the Book of Life as God did in the days of Lot (Genesis 18; Luke 17:28-30). This was the mission of Billy Graham and Oral Roberts to the Laodicean churches in Sodom. The announcement was made in Revelation 8:13, a parenthesis after the Fourth Trumpet Judgment upon the Israelites, and before the Fifth Trumpet of Revelation 9:1-12 and the Sixth Trumpet of Revelation 9:13-21. The Woes are earth's birth pains for renewal. The First Woe struck the earth in World War I (Revelation 9:12), the Second Woe smote the earth in World War II (Revelation 11:14), and the Third Woe will strike earth in the continuation of the 'hot stage' of World War III near the end of the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week when the USA is completely devastated as God showed Brother Branham in the last of his apocalypse of visions in 1933.
"Woe" speaks of the distress or grief of a woman travailing in birth. Jesus called Earth's distress in three World Wars "sorrows." Indeed "the whole creation groans and labours in birth pains" waiting for the manifestation of the Sons of God, the translation of the Bride, and earth's fiery purification for the millennium (Romans 8:19-23).
The three Messages of the angels Luther, Wesley and Branham restored "the common faith" and "finished the mystery of God" (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Titus 1:4; Jude 3; Revelation 10:7); the complete the faith for all Christians (I Corinthians 13:10), Christ's end-time Bride and her 144,000 Israelite attendants for "there is but one Lord, one faith, and one baptism for the remission of sins" (Ephesians 4:5).
The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form. The Prophet said, "As it was in the days of Lot, so will it be in the hours that the Son of man will be revealed on earth, not Son of God no more, Son of man come back as the prophetic message for the last day, when that eagle will be flying . . ." (The Easter Seal, p. 27:182).
"And we do have today, by God's help, the perfect interpretation of the Word with Divine vindication. Then that which is in part is done away with. "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child; but when I become a man, I put away childish things." Amen" (COD p. 1,005:57; I Corinthians 13:10-11).
Revelation 14:6-12 rehearses the complete Gospel Message which has baptized the 144,000 elect Israelites into Christ. Martin Luther's ministry restored "the everlasting Gospel" of justification by grace through faith to men of "every nation, and kindred, and tongue and people" of Adam's race, exhorting them to forsake the reigning idolatry and superstition, stand in awe of God and serve Him; "for the hour of His judgment [with the consummation of Life] has come" [now that 144,000] have been regenerated.
The second angel, John Wesley, added Scriptural "holiness without which no man shall see the Lord" (Hebrews 12:4). From Revelation 14:8 we learn that Babylon is destroyed by the sentence and judgment of God whose execution John describes in Revelation 18. This voice of Christ's ministers has continued since by deliberate counsel and malice, "Mystery, Babylon" questioned the Light of the Gospel. Like Babylon of old, Rome is the most formidable power with which Christ's Church has had to contend.
The Lord is often described in His wrath as giving the nations an intoxicating cup so that they should reel and stagger to their own destruction. "Mystery Babylon" is represented as a harlot, with a cup of wine in her hand—this alluring cup has enticed the nations to drink the wine of her [spiritual] fornication which is idolatry against the revealed Word of God, thus exposing them to His wrath. As she made the nations drunk with the wine of her fornication, she herself will be made drunk with the wine of God's wrath (Jeremiah 25:15; Jeremiah 51:7-8, Revelation 18:3, 6).
In Revelation 14:9-12 the commission of the third angel, William Branham, reaches further than that of the preceding; it extends not only to "mystery Babylon," only to her harlot daughters, the principal agents and promoters of idolatry, but to all the subjects of the beast, whom it consigns to everlasting punishment. "If any man worships the beast and his image [even inwardly], and receives his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, he shall drink of the wine of God's wrath, which is poured out undiluted into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, [that's us], and of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever, and the worshippers of the beast and his image, as well as anyone with the mark of his name, will enjoy no rest day or night. Here is the call for the endurance of the saints: they that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus".
From the opening of the Seven Seals Brother Branham stood in the Light of the Sun at its zenith anointed by the fullness of the Spirit, whose Message lightened earth with His glory (Revelation 8:13; 14:9-12; 18:1-3). His mighty eagle cry was, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the abode of demons, and the prison of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown rich through the abundance of her delicacies".
"This is the third angel's Message to the world. And you know what, the third angel's Message, it's going forth now in this day. This is the flying of the third-angel Message, if you're a Bible believer" (William Branham, The Mark of the Beast #26:3, p. 4:25-31). nl972.htm
