Bible Believers' Newsletter 1082
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and welcome to our mutual fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
I wonder how many of you comprehend the grave nature of the global condition, and how, soon and suddenly wherever you may be you will meet an unprecedented earth-shaking experience. Precautions must taken now—not laying aside water and food, but laying aside the world and the love of the world and engaging a two-way communion with Jesus Christ. This is possible for you whom He personally called and chose by His foreknowledge from the foundation of the world when He saw YOU living "the present Truth" . . . what He is doing through you this very minute. New birth and the rapture are in one sense the same thing; they are the revelation Paul explained in Ephesians chapter one—faith—a clear understanding of the Word for this hour.
In his 1980 book, Cosmos, Carl Sagan wrote: "Every nation seems to have its set of forbidden possibilities, which its citizenry and adherents must not be permitted to think about . . . in the United States, socialism, atheism, and the surrender of national sovereignty." Being a Jew and not a Christian Sagan could not know that the United States lost on all three counts in 1956 as Brother Branham explained. Today we will continue our Bible exposition of the conspiracy of "Esau/Edom, and the Trail of the Serpent" which is taking the last steps toward an international police state, serfdom and depopulation by policy ruled by the United States under Rome.
Our Brother John wrote, "We are right at the door, the DOOR, Who is now here in His children as we watch Satan's Eden manifest, here, now, as we walk in His Light (Colossians 1:27). Yes, how many have yet understood that as Albert Einstein discovered, everything is made of energy? Energy is nothing more than frequencies vibrating at varying speeds which we see as manifestations of Spoken Words. Everything is made of nothing (Heb.) 'bara,' which is why God through His Word forbad hybridization, and our prophet so stressed that point. If it was not in the original creation it will not be on the other side, and we now are living in an artificial, totally hybrid world "as it was in the days of Noah." Time to go Home, Brother.
Follow the hyperlinks and view the videos in the article on MH17 which we have followed over several years. It describes the reality, showing "the earth is corrupt before God, and filled with violence . . . as it was in the days of Noah." Whether in business or politics, education or religion, our leaders are deceived like Eve, serving Cain's upcoming world government presuming they will merit influence and power in the regime. They will be shot because they know too much just as the German administration was shot because they knew the truth about atrocities committed by the Allies.
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.
The Dragon lays out Its Road Map, denies seeking Hegemony
July 29, 2019 — The key merit of China's National Defense in the New Era . . . is to clear any remaining doubts about where the Middle Kingdom is coming from, and where it's going to by 2049 . . . The Beijing leadership openly asserts that as "the US has adjusted its national security and defense strategies, and adopted unilateral policies" that essentially "undermined global strategic stability." Vast sectors of the Global South would concur. The counterpart is the evolution of "the China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination for a new era," now playing "a significant role in maintaining global strategic stability."
In parallel, Beijing is very careful to praise the "military relationship with the US in accordance with the principles of non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation." The "military-to-military relationship" should work as "a stabilizer for the relations between the two countries and hence contribute to the China-US relationship based on coordination, cooperation and stability." Another key counterpart to the US—and NATO—is the increasingly crucial role of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which is "forging a constructive partnership of non-alliance and non-confrontation that targets no third party, expanding security and defense cooperation and creating a new model for regional security cooperation."
The white paper stresses that "the SCO has now grown into a new type of comprehensive regional cooperation organization covering the largest area and population in the world" . . . latest SCO summit in Bishkek did wonders in featuring some of the group's much-vaunted qualities, especially "mutual trust," "consultation," "respect for diverse civilizations" and "pursuit of common development" . . .

The MH17 Tragedy, Suppression and Tampering of Evidence
July 27, 2019 — A new documentary from Yana Yerlashova and Max van der Werff, the leading independent investigator of the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 disaster, has revealed breakthrough evidence of tampering and forging of prosecution materials; suppression of Ukrainian Air Force radar tapes; and lying by the Dutch, Ukrainian, US and Australian governments. An attempt by agents of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to take possession of the black boxes of the downed aircraft is also revealed by a Malaysian National Security Council official for the first time.
The sources of the breakthrough are Malaysian—Prime Minister of Malaysia Mohamad Mahathir; Colonel Mohamad Sakri, the officer in charge of the MH17 investigation for the Prime Minister's Department and Malaysia's National Security Council following the crash on July 17, 2014; and a forensic analysis by Malaysia's OG IT Forensic Services of Ukrainian Secret Service (SBU) telephone tapes which Dutch prosecutors have announced as genuine . . . a secret Malaysian military operation took custody of the MH17 black boxes on July 22, preventing the US and Ukraine from seizing them . . . US, Dutch, Australian and NATO officials initiated a plan for 9,000 troops to enter eastern Ukraine, ostensibly to secure the crash scene, the aircraft and passenger remains, and in response to the alleged Russian role in the destruction . . .

Comment: As a Christian you MUST read the full story, watch the videos and follow the links which witness to the apostasy of the (once) Christian West and the perfidy of Presidents, Prime ministers, NATO and other foolish men with power. The Prophet said, "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" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 117:1). The average man does not think for himself, our self-important leaders, including the President who won the Nobel Peace Prize are determined to lead the world to war against Russia in order to preserve the corrupt fiat monetary system and preserve the wealth of International Usurers. President, Mr. Putin stands head and shoulders over all of these stuffed shirts, as does Prime Minister Mohamad Mahithir. Once again Jesus' prophecy that the United States is the image unto the beast of Imperial Rome is confirmed (Revelation 13:15-18). As it stands, Washington's 'enemy list' continues to be composed and imposed by its own irrational leaders, pro-Israel maniacs and Russophobes in the Democratic Party—with no acknowledgement of current realities.
Role of Jewish Democrats in Bill that could imprison Israel Boycotters 20 Years
July 22, 2019 — The Israel Anti-Boycott Act would punish those boycotting Israel with a minimum civil penalty of $250,000 and a maximum criminal penalty of $1 million and 20 years in prison. The legislation is being sponsored by both conservatives and liberals . . .

Comment: Eight days ago eleven Palestinian buildings containing seventy family apartments located in the illegally Israeli occupied East Jerusalem village of Wadi al-Hummus were demolished in a military-led operation by more than 1,000 Israeli soldiers, policemen and municipal workers using bulldozers, backhoes and explosives. Residents who resisted were beaten by the soldiers, kicked down flights of stairs and even shot at close range with rubber bullets. The soldiers were recorded laughing and celebrating as they did their dirty work. Occupants who did not resist and who held their hands up in surrender were also not spared the rod, as were also foreign observers who were present to add their voices to those who were protesting the outrage. The injuries sustained by some of the victims have been photographed and are available online . . . globalresearch.ca
BHP – Climate Change
May 17, 2019 — The 'Big Australian' is now the world's largest miner: "BHP accepts the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessment of climate change science, which has found that warming of the climate is unequivocal, human influence is clear and physical impacts are unavoidable. Read our full climate change position statement".
Science refutes anthropological global warming and the IPCC has no standing. Climate change is a bigger HOAX than the holocaust of six million Jews claimed against Germany in World War I, a bigger HOAX than the extermination of six million Jews claimed against Jew-ruled USSR but which was a real genocide of sixty-million mainly Christians, and a bigger HOAX than the holocaust of six million Jews claimed against Germany in World War II yet Jewish population increased by over 436,000 between 1933 and 1948 (World Almanac). Outside Jewish statistics which prove there were not six million Jews in all of Europe at the time, science knows no technology able to secretly gas and 'disappear' the mortal remains of six million without trace.
BHP, your Federal representative and the Big end of town must know Climate Change evolved from the disappearing Ozone Layer, (a natural cycle found by the C.S.I.R.O. before the expiry of DuPont's patent on chlorofluorocarbon and hydrochlorofluorocarbon refrigerants introduced this unscientific scam), to Global Cooling, to Global Warming (a profitable HOAX to cover deindustrialization, depopulation, and the return to serfdom under world government and a means of extracting money from individuals and governments to fund voluntary collectivization into a prison planet and cull "useless eaters"). As BHP admits: "Climate change is a global challenge that requires a collaborative market and policy response. Playing our part in responding to climate change is a priority governance and strategic issue for BHP. Our Board is actively engaged in the governance of climate change issues, supported by the Sustainability Committee. Management has primary responsibility for the design and implementation of our climate change strategy."
In truth, the crisis of environmentalism has been developed as a means to bring about a one-world government: "Through a skilful wedding of socialism, New Age Pantheism and a manufactured climate of despair over a 'dying planet,' these powerful individuals (now deceased, David Rockefeller and Edmund de Rothschild) were creating a climate of fear which will see mankind not only accept, but demand, a one-world government to deliver us from environmental apocalypse. This one-world government will, of course, be the capstone of their planned New World Order. "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," declared members of the Club of Rome in a sweeping 1991 report on global governance. "All these dangers are caused by human intervention . . . The real enemy, then, is humanity itself" . . . On May 4, 1992, Gorbachev . . . (Read the last few pages of The Aquarian Conspiracy and educate yourself).
Towards the close of the Carter' Presidency in 1980, "Global 2000 Report to the President," a two-volume study hailed as the most comprehensive effort to project global economic trends for the next 20 years, painted a picture of a world endangered by over-population, resource shortages, food shortages and environmental hazards. Among its forecasts: 170 million deaths through disease and famine in the developing countries. Then "Global Future: A Time to Act," presented policy recommendations on the problems defined by "Global 2000." It lauded 'population control' as the cornerstone of a policy to counter those problems.
Both "Global 2000" and "Global Future" are correctly understood as political statements of intent on the part of such policy-centres 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 millions cited in the reports . . . So you see the International Financiers can reduce world population by the implementation of 'policy'. Investment will not be forthcoming with the advanced countries in enforced retreat, and bankers demanding their 'pound of flesh.' The result will be depopulation by increased poverty, disease and starvation, and transfer of assets to the bankers (God Works in the Individual, not through Organization).
The 1967 'hoax' of "The Report from Iron Mountain" suggested that in a search for new crises, the government might introduce massive environmental pollution. These things have all come to pass. History is not happenstance, history is planned! Illuminus FDR said, "If something happens in politics you can bet it was planned that way".
BHP went on to say: "Our climate change strategy focuses on reducing our operational greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, investing in low emissions technologies, promoting product stewardship, managing climate-related risk and opportunity, and working with others to enhance the global policy and market response."
Greenhouse gasses have NOTHING whatsoever to do with climate change. This is a cheap magician trick to divert your attention over there whilst the man introduces a police state over here! Human activity cannot overrule the sun: atmospheric CO2 comes primarily from the ocean, not industry; more atmospheric CO2 would be beneficial to all, the present warming is a natural function of the sun's Milankovitch Cycle.
Esau/Edom, and the Trail of the Serpent – IV
When Adam was lonely and wanted a mate God gave him a hundred pounds of rib chops, and that's where the trouble began. Because, you see, these rib chops were not original creation, not a spoken Word of God but a by-product of Adam who was original creation. Not being manifested Word this woman and all of the lovely creatures born in her likeness are made so they can deceive and be deceived.
Adam told Eve the rules—God's unchanging Word—and shared with her all the things he had been shown. However Eve was not God's Word manifest but "that which was in part," and like the denominational church Eve's impetuous desire for hidden knowledge caused her to substitute reason for faith and usurp her husband's authority.
The upshot of this was the Fall wherein Lucifer incarnate a man-like creature called the Serpent, and seduced Eve. Although more worldly-wise, Eve was now a fallen woman and still deceived as she returned to her husband to teach him knowledge he did not have. And that, dear sisters, is why women are forbidden to teach, preach or usurp authority over men and why you serve God as you obey your own husband (Genesis 3:16; I Timothy 2:11-15).
Because Adam had the revelation that as a manifested Son of God he was part of the Logos and eternal with the Word, he knew for sure that he could never be separated from God. Therefore he was prepared to step over the time-line and the Life-line and join Eve in death, certain that in so-doing he would redeem the woman he loved for God had joined them together in holy wedlock and the two were one. So when God restored Adam as He must at some time, he knew that his wife would be with him.
Adam forgave Eve and took her to himself knowing that in her womb was the seed of the Serpent who would be Cain, and his own seed who would be Abel. Throughout the Bible we find twins because any impersonation is always so close to the genuine article, it would almost deceive the very elected if it were possible (Matthew 24:24). Rivalry between contestants for the same prize genders enmity—one just, the other unjust, one elected, the other reprobate, because only one is predestinated to Life, the other is bound for perdition. Let's read our text:
Genesis 3:15 "I will put enmity between the Serpent and the woman, and between his seed and her seed; her seed shall bruise his head, and the Serpent's seed shall bruise his heel".
Now let me ask you three questions while you have your Bibles open at this Scripture. Does the Serpent still go about on his belly? Does a woman still bear her children in pain and suffering? Does the earth still bear thorns and thistles abundantly, requiring man to labour in order to grow cultivated seed?
I think the universal answer to these three questions is "yes." If this is so, then the "enmity" that God placed between the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman is still present. Do you know what that word "enmity" means? It means hatred, hostility, and to treat as an enemy. Do you remember Who placed this enmity between us as Adam's (and therefore God's children), and the offspring of the Serpent? It was God. Has God removed that enmity? If the answer is "no." Then the enmity is still here.
Paul said in Romans 8:6, "To be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace." So when it came time for Cain and Abel to offer sacrifices to God, Cain the Serpent's son was carnal, offering fruit and vegetables. Maybe he believed that eating an apple caused the fall of man. Cain worked his guts out toiling against the curse, thinking, when I harvest these crops the life will go out of them and I'll offer them to God.
God rejected Cain and his offering because it was not vegetable life that caused the Fall, it was animal life. So animal life had to be offered, and the evidence that the life had been sacrificed was not maple syrup! It was blood!
After Cain humbled himself before Abel and learned the revelation he saw that he was never Adam's son and therefore he would never be a Son of God. He saw that he would never have an inheritance on this earth, and as he was not one of God's creatures or creations, not even God could redeem him because to "redeem" means to "buy back." Cain realized he was never God's possession but a Satanic perversion of God's creation.
In the Great Commission recorded in Mark 16:15, Jesus commands His disciples, "Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature" or creation. Jesus is the KINSMAN Redeemer for Adam and his race, not for horses and dogs, fishes or birds which are all God's creatures but they are not kin to Adam. And Jesus is not kin to Cain and his descendants, who are neither creatures of God's creation, nor are they of Adam's race or kind.
How Cain hated righteous Abel. It was enmity, the longest hatred (Genesis 3:15). Here is a famous saying from George Orwell's "1984" that may have originated with Cain. It says, "He who controls the past, controls the future." Suddenly Cain saw that if he killed Abel he would destroy the past and might control the future: should his race interbreed with that of Adam, he would obtain the birthright he now knew was never his, and "as it was in the days of Noah" so is it today in the Coming of the Son on man (Genesis 6:1-4; Matthew 24:37).
Turn your Bibles to Genesis 4:11-15. When God confronted Cain He said, "And now you are cursed from the earth . . . a vagabond and a wanderer shall you be in the earth." In other words, a citizen of the world, an international person, with no country to call your inheritance.
"And Cain said unto the Lord, My perversity and depravity is more than I can cope with. You've driven me out this day from the face of the earth; [he is not kin to Adam's race, and not on the Book of Life]; and from Your Presence shall I be hid; [because without faith he is not in the genealogy of God]; and I shall be a wanderer and a vagabond in the earth [as he has no inheritance or country]; and it shall come to pass, that everyone that recognizes me shall slay me" [because he is a trespasser and a hostile enemy].
And the Lord said, Whosoever slays Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any recognizing him should kill him."
According to Moses, Cain's people would have no homeland, but move around living in other people's countries. When they do settle for a time they're overthrown by God's people, as Israel cast them out from Canaan. Moses said, that God gave them a certain quality so that we would not feel at liberty to kill, but be wary of them.
Cain's depravity was this awesome mark. And it is the mark of the beast. The distinguishing mark of Cain is a ruthless intellectual ability wherein the "ends" justify the "means" and which is wholly selfish, knowing neither restraint of human decency, nor respect for God.
Cain's people have lived by their wits without scruple up to the present day. There was a time when they were known and marked. And their unbridled evil is such that they have been expelled from country after country by people who knew the Word of God. Today we are taught the unscriptural proverb, "all men are created equal" when most are not in God's creation. Today no nation knows or respects the Word of God. Cain's people have intermixed with our society, perverting education, Bible revelation, laws, social mores and our attitudes until the once Christian world is depraved. Because we have rejected the Absolute of God's unchanging Word our nations are defenceless and they control us since "they are the head and we are now the tail".
Because Adam's race is largely apostate today and wholly ignorant of their identity and the faith of God's Word, Cain's people have been enabled to hide and control the past. Google, Facebook, Amazon, Hollywood, the CIA, the worldwide media monopoly and Rockefeller's global franchise on education disclosed by The Special Committee to investigate Tax-Exempt Foundations and Comparable Organizations appointed by House Resolution 217, 83rd Congress, 1st Session (adopted July 27, 1953), to study and determine whether tax-exempt educational and philanthropic foundations and comparable organizations were using "un-American and subversive activities for political purposes; propaganda or attempts to influence legislation." The investigation was abrogated. By controlling education, information, religion and culture (sic) Cain's race has manipulated the minds of generations and now master the future of all who are without Christ in the sense of a genuine new birth.
Cain adopted Lucifer's Genesis 3 plan to intermarry and breed Adam's race off the Book of Life. By the time of the Flood, the two races had hybridized to such an extent God grieved that He had made man in flesh (Genesis 6:1-6). Cain's people had thoroughly depraved the Sons of God, Adam's race, influencing them to immorality and continual evil, only Noah found grace in His sight, so God destroyed the world with a Flood.
Jesus said these conditions would repeat during the time of His parousia. "Parousia" is the Greek word which describes Christ's unseen second Coming. Not the physical return of the glorified Jesus; that will not occur until after Armageddon and the destruction of all life on earth. Christ's parousia is His return in W_O_R_D form to incarnate His end-time Bride for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. The revelation of the Seven Seals "finished the mystery of God" and brought Christ the fullness of the Word back to earth in W_O_R_D Form in 1963. He is present now.
Let's see if we can identify the conditions of "the days of Noah" today.
1) Is there a huge increase in population today "as it was in the days of Noah" (Genesis 6:1)?
The answer is Yes! Cain's United Nations and various "think tanks" [of intellectual Cains! or spiritual Serpent's seed] such as the Club of Rome, Chatham House, the Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderbergers, etc., have devised various means to de-populate and cull the goyim, or "human cattle," which is us.
The policies of these Canaanites, their United Nations and 'Think' tanks are directly opposed to God's policy entrusted to Adam and recorded by Moses: to "populate and fill the earth, and subdue it." In union with the omniscient God Adam's born-again people belong to His Know it ALL 'Faith' tank. Well, He does and we're identified in Him. Amen!
The nations of the world are engaged in eugenics or de-population defined by more diplomatic terms. Cunning like their father, they call it Biodiversity, Land Care, Sustainable Development, Greenpeace, World Heritage, World Wildlife Fund, World Commission on Environment and Development, Agenda 30, Commission on Global Governance, Carbon Tax, Protection of the Ozone Layer, Global Commons, Earth Council, Greenhouse Effect, Earth Summit, Transparency International, Global Climate Change, Prince of Wales Business Leaders' Forum, Global Environment Facility, etc.,
We must remember that we live in the world of 'insider' George Orwell's "1984" where bureaucracy communicates by "newspeak" and "doublethink." And a conference on population is actually a conference on depopulation, genocide or eugenics. Genocidal population reduction measures were again given respectability by forces grouped around the UN and the agenda for the 1994 Cairo Population (depopulation) Conference was modelled on the eugenics conference held in Berlin in the '30's. Now three gigantic corporate groups worldwide control the genetically-modified part of the human food chain.
Only a small percentage are being killed by armies with guns—proven to be an ineffective form of reducing population. They found the most effective instrument of death is policy. National policies—trade sanctions, UN, World Bank and International Monetary Fund policies, determine investment and development which creates or restricts employment. Infrastructure, the provision of utilities like water, electricity, communications, transport, also education, health care, hospitals and housing in turn determine whether populations increase or diminish.
These so-called NGO's, Non Government Organizations accomplish the opposite objective to what one might understand from their names. Independent of and antithetical to sovereign national governments, they represent different elements working towards totalitarian one world government. They're introducing central control, dependence, and the transfer of production, wealth and power. In short, their function is to produce poverty, serfdom, famine and depopulation. Organizations like GATT, NAFTA, EU, Maastricht and APEC have accomplished this objective, impoverishing both developed and underdeveloped nations and bringing them under the banksters yoke.
Policies such as Global 2000 and Global Future endorsed by Jimmy Carter set the measure for government policies in America and Australia that will depopulate our nations by destroying industry, weakening economies, encouraging the asset-stripping of public utilities and private corporations, halting wealth creation by environmental restrictions, poor profitability, regulations like non-discriminatory employment, and legislation prohibiting dismissal of employees even where criminal activity is proven. Thus we find national and private infrastructure being cannibalized by vultures after short-term gain with the assurance this wealth will not exist for future wealth creation, and the world will enter a new Dark Age.
"Economic Rationalism" (so-called), milks companies for short-term profits to shareholders and options to greedy company directors by downsizing, stalling R&D, shifting manufacturing to Third World countries, and breaking-up subsidiaries for asset-stripping. This loses skills, ultimately impoverishing the corporations and the nation.
There are ways of killing people without using guns. And one may receive accolades from a community distracted by short-term gain. What that community does not see is that it is being killed. The social costs are destroying the Western world. We're living beyond our means and not on the profits of production, but on borrowings from offshore banks controlled by international people with no country, like Cain (Deuteronomy 32:8). Like gamblers trying to bet against the house, we're betting against the fractional reserve banking system that issues money as a debit, backed by thin air. And it is killing people. These policies produce unemployment which kills people, destroys families, reduces marriage prospects, reduces the size of families and life-expectancy. That's in the Developed World. In the Developing Nations the effects are more deadly.
Oh there are other means. The World Health Organization introduced AIDS which is killing millions. 36.9 million people world-wide now have the virus. AIDS is the leading cause of death among young people (aged 10-24) in Africa, and second leading cause globally. Every week, 7,500 young women across the world acquire HIV. The introduction of deadly carcinogenic unleaded petrol is another killer. Then there are revolutions and wars generated by the United Nations, and the famines they create by their policies.
How about the birth rate? Hardly any country except India is even replacing deaths. Most nations have falling populations. China's one child policy, abortion on demand, homosexuality, unemployment, refugees and poor homeless, all represent planned depopulation.
All around the world, countries are seeing falling birth rates and rising life expectancy. Ageing populations are leading to greater spending on healthcare and pensions, but the number of people working and paying taxes is decreasing. As a result, these countries are at risk of becoming "demographic time bombs," signifying a crisis of too few working people. Demographers say countries need fertility rates of 2.2 children per woman to maintain a stable population, but many nations' birth rates, such as those of South Korea and the United States, have fallen below 2. An increase in immigrant workers can help alleviate these trends, but immigration alone can't reverse a demographic time bomb if a significant number of citizens leave for employment in other countries.
2) Is there massive miscegenation today between the children of Adam and the descendants of Cain "as there was in the days of Noah" (Genesis 6:2; Matthew 24:37)?
Deuteronomy 32:7-8 is a prophecy spanning almost four thousand years. "Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask your father, and he'll show you; ask your elders, and they will tell you. When the most High divided to the Gentiles their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam [from one another and from the sons of Cain], He set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel".
God was saying, "Consider the years of many generations and know that I will cause you to inherit the days of Messiah and the world to come, and you will see that I loved you before the days of Abraham." And Moses hearkens to Genesis 10:25 and 11:1-9 when God in His providence separated the various families and tongues, gradually to settle in their allotted localities. He so guided the hearts of the people, that Canaan's posterity—Cain's accursed race—should be resident in the Land He had intended for Israel, foreseeing that by the time Israel had multiplied sufficiently, the Canaanites should fill up the measure of iniquities and merit extirpation. Thus Israel received their portion (out of due time) in a high state of cultivation, replete with cities, towns and villages centuries after Eber's son Peleg was born 101 years after the Flood. Peleg means "division as by a small channel of water"—like the Jordan. Peleg was born in 2197BC, the year the Lord God caused "the confusion of tongues" to divide the nations and halt construction of the Tower of Babel.
Peleg is the root of the word earthquake—like that which will divide the Mount of Olives, demolish es Sakhra, the Dome of the Rock, and incite the invasion and utter defeat of the modern State of faux Israel as prophesied in Isaiah 6:9-13; 13:1-16; Joel 2:1-3:2; Zechariah 14:1-2, 4-9; Revelation 11:15; 16:19 and UN Resolution 181. The non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Israeli Jews are not Israelites, they have no history in the Middle East, and will abandon that mendicant state whose industrial development and modern infrastructure was unwillingly funded by German and US tax and wage slaves. This will permit the twelve Tribes descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to return safely to the Land of their Covenant for their redemption without "fear of the Jews" (John 7:13; 19:38). Within seven years Israel—all 144,000 of them—will be reborn as a nation in one day, thereafter they will be martyred (Isaiah 66:7-8; Matthew 27:25).
Before the Flood and up until the dispersion "the whole earth had been of one language [or stock of words expressed in the same syntax, word order and grammar], and of one speech [or expression with the same inflections without diversity of dialects]" (Genesis 11:1-5). Until the confusion of tongues all spoke with one lip, but it was 'impure' for it was in rebellion against God. This outward confusion at Babel was to hinder the oneness in evil from a worse confusion by separating the two races to preserve the seed of Adam.
Pentecost restored God's elect to the unity of heart and soul by One Spirit whose gift is the one faith and the one hope of our calling in the One Lord in whom we are one, grafted into one body by our invisible marriage union (Ephesians 4:3-6). "In the dispensation of the fullness of times" or Church Ages of PART-Word, the Message delivered by God's Prophet, William Branham has separated Christ's end-time Bride from Mystery Babylon the Great and her apostate (once) Protestant daughter churches—restored us to the apostolic faith and finished the mystery of God. Christ is the mystery of God disclosed in the revelation of the Seven Seals. His purpose is that we might "all speak the same thing" by the 'pure' language of rapturing Faith in preparation for the 'third pull' that will "gather together in one all things in Christ, both [the Church Age saints] which are in heaven, and we who are alive and remain, even in Him . . . that God might work His mighty power in us as when He raised and glorified our Lord Jesus" (I Corinthians 1:10; Ephesians 1:10-23).
God is going to "smite the earth with a curse . . . and He has shortened the days lest there should be no flesh saved for the rapture: but for the elects' sake those days are being shortened [by Christ's secret, sudden unseen (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming]. Today if anyone tells you Christ is here, or there; believe it not" because we are not looking for the Man (Matthew 24:22-23). Brother Branham introduced the second Coming of the Son of man in W_O_R_D form when he delivered the revelation of the Seven Seals from March 18-24, 1963 (Matthew 25:6; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:1-4). His Message was Christ's second Coming, calling His end-time Bride out from the world church system, separating us from the destructive unity Satan has been gathering in Vatican II and the scandalous interreligious prayer meetings of Assisi I, II, and III in readiness for the great and dreadful Day of the Lord.
In that Day the United States will be devastated by tectonic activity and tsunamis unprecedented since man was on earth. The failure of the US dollar will collapse the global economy and unbeknownst to the world the sleeping saints will begin the first resurrection glorified, while "we who are alive and remain shall manifest that we are the Sons of God, change in the atoms and be translated" (I Thessalonians 4:14-17; I Corinthians 15:49-56). As we meet the Lord in the Air, Satan will be cast down to earth and incarnate Rome's pope who will confirm the covenant Jesuit Jewish President Shimon Peres made with the modern Israel state as informed by our correspondent, the late Barry Chamish in previous issues of this Newsletter (Daniel 9:27; UN Resolution 181 of November 29, 1947). Born in Poland Szymon Perski—Peres or Perez is a Spanish name meaning "son of Pero or Pedro (Peter)" and a Jewish surname popular among people of Sephardic (i.e. Moorish Berber, Bedouin, Canaanite) Jewish descent. The Hebrew spelling is Pharez which means "breach." True to his name Shimon Peres' duplicitous diplomacy has temporarily cemented the breach between Judaeo-Islam, Judaism and Judaeo-Romanism so when mainland USA is invaded and garrisoned by Russia the world will be divided between Judaeo-Communism and a Judaeo-Catholic confederation of all religions. The incarnate pope will refinance the US dollar with gold, confirming the covenant, preserving the wealth of the Jewish banksters, and enabling the world economy to recover. The United Nations in New York City will acclaim him inaugural President of the one world government headquartered in Jerusalem Jesus declined (Acts of the Holy Spirit, p. 12:87; Matthew 4:8-9). This will place the Catholic church in full control of the United States before the bomb comes that explodes her (Hybrid Religion, p. 160:6; Church Ages, p. 322:3). UN Resolution 181 will be enforced granting Palestine Statehood with Jerusalem a "corpus separatum," and the diminution of self-styled Jews genuine Israelites and Semitic Palestinians will live together in peace as they did for thousands of years prior to Rothschild colonisation of Palestine.
Zephaniah covers the times of the Gentiles, re-birth of the Israel nation, its martyrdom, Armageddon, the consummation and millennium. We will examine Zephaniah 3:8-10, "Therefore wait for Me, says the Lord [to the pious meek among the Judeans (Zephaniah 2:3), urging them not to despair, but to be patient under the affliction throughout all these judgments on Judah], until the day when I stand as witness, accuser and judge to the prey [as your enemy, your rejected Messiah (Zephaniah 1:2-17; Acts 1:11; Daniel 12:1; Zechariah 14:3-5), to first destroy, and then to take the spoil: since you, by your sins, continue to be My enemies; by my judgments I will show myself in arms against you as your enemy by invading your country, destroying and plundering you through four Gentile world empires]: for My justice is to gather the nations against Jerusalem (Ezekiel 38:14-23; Joel 3:2; Zechariah 12:2-3; 14:2), then to pour out My indignation upon them there, that I may assemble the kingdoms in crowds to destroy in one last struggle everything opposed to God, in one day (Micah 4:12)], to pour My indignation, all My fierce anger upon [the obstinate, incorrigible, and impious Judeans first (Zephaniah 3:1-7): for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of My jealous zeal [which will not endure your ill-treatment by those who [like Judaeo-Catholicism, Judaeo-Communism] and everything not from God that make themselves His rivals in the government of the world." The meek are not told to wait for the Day of judgment itself, but for the result, which will be the millennium when the Kingdom is restored to Israel].
"At that time I will change the speech of My returning people to a 'pure' speech [or revelation called "the common faith" and also "the present Truth" (Titus 1:4; II Peter 1:12; Isaiah 19:18)], so that they may all call upon the Name of the Lord, and serve Him shoulder to shoulder." This takes us to Daniel's Seventieth Week "after the fullness of the Gentiles has come" (Romans 11:25-32) when "From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia My petitioners, even the daughter of My dispersed, shall bring My offering" (Zephaniah 3:10).
On the Day of Pentecost Christ began building His fifteen hundred mile high eternal Temple, New Jerusalem, signified by the reunion of an election of "lively stones" from every nation, tongue, colour and culture of Adam's race. "And they were filled with the Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance . . . and Judeans, devout men, out of every nation under heaven . . . were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language." Ten days prior Jesus "went away to prepare a place" for the Church Age Saints by inteceding for their ignorance of the fullness of the Word through two thousand years while the Book was sealed. When the last saint predestinated to the PART-Word Body was born-again Christ's mediation in the Office Son of God was fulfilled. He resumed the prophetic Office Son of man, claimed the Book, loosed its Seals, descended to earth with the little Book open in His left hand, and after ten days He began delivering the Revelation of the Seven Seals through His Prophet (John 14:1-3; Acts 2:1-6; 17:26; Revelation 4; 5; 6:1-17; 10:1-7).
When in Isaiah 10:13 the King of Assyria boasts he has removed the boundaries of Deuteronomy 32:8, adding them to his own dominions, he boasts that he has undone the work of God Himself by the strength of his own hand, vision and understanding. Psalm 74:17 puts the establishment of the boundaries of the land in the context of creation and their assignment to the nations as possessions parallel to the establishment of the boundaries of the peoples. The races are to remain separate.
But in this day we find East and West are mixing. Different races are intermarrying which is absolutely forbidden by God's Word, particularly as people are ignorant of the original sin and the Serpent's seed are hybridizing with the sons of Adam "as it was in the days of Noah".
Whereas God separated the nations by natural borders—mountains, rivers, deserts and oceans, the ungodly thugs who planned, and now control the UN, an absolutely unscriptural organization according to Amos 3:3, with their intellectual mark of Cain, persuaded our Fabian Communist politicians and Marxist bureaucracies in America, Australia, Britain and the other nations to sign some form of treaty that forbids discrimination on immigration by race, colour, religion, etc.,
Cain's race knows that "God has driven them out from the face of the earth and from His Presence" and fear that were their true identity exposed, "every one that finds them will kill them." One race has stooped to such depths of hatred for God, His Word and His people by promoting genocide by abominable treaties (Genesis 3:11-14).
Who else would press the government of Australia to introduce Racial Discrimination Laws? The then Prime Minister Paul Keating claimed the Bill was necessary to, "dissuade those who seek to incite violence and hatred." However in 200 years there is no evidence of anyone in Australia "inciting violence and hatred" outside two tiny neo-Nazi groups such as National Action and National Front founded by David Gleason, a paid journalist of Isi Leibler and his brother Mark Leibler then (president of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry and co-chairman with Edgar Bronfman's World Jewish Congress), both associated with the organized crime-connected Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. (See The Story of a Covenant, NY, Appleton-Century, 1966; Esther L. Panitz, Simon Wolf—Private Conscience and Public Image, Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 1987; King of Fifth Avenue—The Fortunes of August Belmont, NY, The Dial Press, 1981; The Anti-Semitism of Black Demagogues and Extremists – ADL Report, 1992; Dope Inc., La Rouche, EIR; Peter C. Newman, The Bronfman Dynasty: The Rothschilds of the New World, McClelland Stewart, Toronto; Not the Word of One Day, an ADL autobiography; Conspiracy Against Freedom; A Documentation of One Campaign of the Anti-Defamation League Against Freedom of Speech and Thought in Americy, Liberty Lobby, Washington, 1986).
Why after 200 years should anyone suddenly find it necessary to impose prison sentences on someone who might "vilify" a person's race, tribe or ethnic group, or for violent acts motivated by race hate? There is one group in the world who cry "wolf" then promote racial hatred. Were it not for such laws, we could identify them. This demonstrates meticulous long-term planning for the "squeeze" by the usual suspects.
God's ancient borders and taboos have been moved by the ungodly sons of Cain. In Australia and the West we have miscegenation on a massive scale. When I was preaching in England and based in a town called Bernley, I saw only two white people in that town over two weeks. In America and in Australia there are places where people don't speak English. The shop signs and street signs are all in a foreign language, or two.
What is euphemistically called "Multiculturalism" is in fact multi-racialism and miscegenation that is accursed of God. If He destroyed the world by Flood for this sin in the days of Noah, His justice demands that He destroy our present generation for the same reason, but by fire as prophesied.
The people behind "multiculturalism" are unleashing racial conflict and social chaos throughout the world. When the coming world depression strikes there will be unprecedented civil unrest. While those who have deliberately created this situation from behind the scenes by mixing oil and water will express their horror and condemn racism as they disguise their pivotal part. They gave us two World Wars, financing both sides; they established and funded Communism, established and financed Nazism, helped found the neo-Nazi British National Front, the National Front and National Action neo-Nazi groups in Australia, the Muslim Brotherhood, al Qaeda and 'Islamic' terrorism; through Albert Pike they established the KKK, and the FBI describes their JDL as the leading terrorist group in America.
Now they're bringing the world to the brink of catastrophe once again. They tell a lie, keep repeating it and people will eventually believe it. Thus those who control the past can control the future.
3) Is there moral depravity today. Do the sons of Adam take any Serpent seed girl they choose "as it was in the days of Noah?" (Genesis 6:2, 11-13; Matthew 24:38).
Certainly they do. There is a big business running these women in prostitution and in the bride trade because the apostate churches don't tell their congregations not to marry outside their own race—particularly not to Serpent seed people. Naturally they are pretty women, nice friendly people, but not Spiritual. Moses said, "They seem alright in the flesh, but if you marry them, they'll turn you away from God because they are NOT on the Book of Life and they will never understand the revealed Word of God" (Deuteronomy 7:1-5).
I've preached to them, testified in Bible schools, but they can't be Christians because they're fruit from the wrong tree. God's law of reproduction states everything must bring forth of its own kind whose seed is in itself. Don't become involved in promiscuity, and be sure you choose your friends and your husband or wife from Adam's race, and within the faith of Jesus Christ, not a denomination.
4) Is this a day of great construction and scientific achievement by men of renown "as it was in the days of Noah"?
You bet! There's never been such technological sophistication this side of the Flood as there is in this day. And that's despite the disinvestment and restriction on research and development over the past fifteen-or-so years. Oh, we're advanced! The Dow Jones Industrial Average as of July 24, 2019 is 27,269.97. It was 13,946 in July 1998. The conditions of the days of Noah have repeated today and Christ's 'parousia' is with us as we can confirm in God's Word (Genesis 6:1-13; Matthew 24:37). If only we can find the prophet Jesus promised God would send in this day, through whose mouth His 'parousia' would come.
Of Noah's three sons Japheth is placed first in the genealogy (Genesis 10:1-2, 21), because he was the eldest, and Shem who was born three years after Japheth, is placed last. Japheth, means "persuaded" or "enlarged." Genesis 9:27 prophesied, "God shall enlarge [persuade or convert] Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem [or come under the covering of God's Word and Covenant]; and Canaan shall be his servant." Japheth's descendants were the most numerous and most widely spread from the birthplace of mankind. The general description of their territory is "the isles of the Gentiles" or "isles of the sea [beyond Judea]" (Genesis 10:5; Deuteronomy 32:8; Isaiah 42:4; Jeremiah 25:22; Acts 17:26). These countries were initially the coastlands bordering the north side of the Mediterranean and its connected waters.
From Japheth God draws most of the leaders of the Gentile Church, which is the Bride of Christ and God manifest. Japheth succeeds Shem as so often in Scripture the first is last, and the elder serves the younger. Shem lost his pre-eminent position when his people killed their Messiah, the true promised Seed of Abraham. As God's servant the 144,000 elect Israelites who will be born-again during the tribulation are typed as "eunuchs" to serve Christ's Bride. Ham's elect descendants will make up the Gentile Bride together with those of Japheth and Shem who are baptized into the Body during the Gentile dispensation. But Canaan's offspring, "driven out" or scattered throughout the world, have no inheritance whatever.
Ham was Noah's younger son (Genesis 9:24), and Shem, who was but one hundred years of age when Arphaxad was born, two years after the Flood, was the youngest (Genesis 11:10). Noah was 600 years old at the time of the Flood (Genesis 7:11); he began to beget children in his 500th year (Genesis 5:32), his firstborn son was Japheth, then Ham, and lastly Shem was born in Noah's 503rd year, 97 years before the Flood.
We've traced the seed of the Serpent to the time of the Flood when it almost smothered the seed of Adam, physically, and the seed of God (faith) spiritually. The Serpent seed came over the Flood in the person of Noah's wife who was not the mother of his three sons. Ham's name means "hot," "infatuated" or "passionate." Ham committed adultery with his father's wife so his first-born son Canaan was Serpent's seed and cursed as Cain was "cursed from the earth." Canaan's name means "brought into subjection" or "humbled." God prophesied Canaan would become a "servant of servants." The rest of Ham's offspring were in the righteous line but because of his folly of uncontrolled passion, his descendants were not numbered among God's Church Age Messengers?
When the sons of Noah are enumerated Shem is always named first because on him the covenant was entailed, as appears in Genesis 9:26, where God is called "the Lord God of Shem." The birthright was given to him and from him both Abraham, Christ the Head and His Body the Church were to descend (Genesis 22:18; Galatians 3:16-29), therefore he is called Shem, which signifies a name, because in his posterity the Name of God should always remain, till He should come out of his loins whose Name is above every name; so that in putting Shem first, Christ was in effect put first, who in all things must have the pre-eminence (Ephesians 1:21-23; Colossians 1:15-19).
It was from the line of Shem that God drew His election following the Flood and in them He placed His Name. "Israel" is the name of the promised son in the natural, and the name of the overcomer. "Lord Jesus Christ" is the Name of the Promised Son and King of Israel in the Spiritual, God's compound redemptive Name and the Name of Christ's Bride.
Before God formed man on earth, He blessed all of Adam's race and told them "to multiply and have dominion over the earth" (Genesis 1:28). Cain and his race, not being foreknown in creation, are not included in the blessing. They have no promise of dominion, and no inheritance on this earth. Genesis 10:15-19 names Canaan's heirs: Sidon, Heth, the Jebusites, Amorites, Girgasites, Hivites, Arkites, Sinites, Arvadites, Zemarites and Hamathites, and foretells their being driven from Canaan Land which the Israelites would succeed, and defines its borders.
Now we meet Isaac and Rebekah whose twins Esau and Jacob fought within her womb and God said, "two nations are in your womb, and two manner of people shall be born; one people will be stronger than the other; and the elder shall serve the younger." The first-born was red and hairy all over, so they called him "Esau," which means "shaggy." As his younger brother was born he reached forth and took hold of Esau by the heel, so they called him Jacob, meaning "Heel grabber" or "supplanter" (Genesis 25:19-26).
Esau married two Hittite women, daughters of Heth the son of Canaan (Genesis 26:34). The Hittites once inhabited central Anatolia (now Turkey), and later north Lebanon. Isaac and Rebekah grieved that Esau had married Serpent seed women because their offspring would be Serpent's seed. He then married an Ishmaelite (Genesis 28:8-9). If her offspring intermarried with the locals, the Adamic line in Esau was extinguished forever.
Genesis 38 records Judah's marriage to a Canaanitess who bore him three sons. He married their eldest to a Hebrew woman named Tamar. When Er died childless Judah commanded his second son to fulfil the law of Levirate marriage and raise up a son for his brother's inheritance. Onan spilled his seed and God slew him. There remained only Shelah, whom Judah was unwilling to entrust to a potentially dangerous union with Tamar lest he should meet with the same fate as his brothers. But God was watching over the Seed of Adam to keep His election pure. For Messiah was to come through Judah's line.
With no child to receive her late husband's inheritance Tamar resorted to the desperate expedient of entrapping Judah himself into the union he feared for his son. The fruits of this intercourse were the twins, Pharez and Zarah. The sacred line continued through Pharez, to Joseph and Jesus Christ. Pharez means a "breach," contravention or failure to observe law, code of conduct or agreement, gap or fracture. Such was the case in Christ's relation with His espoused wife, the Church, which ended in apostasy and was divorced in Laodicea (Luke 18:8; Romans 11:32; II Thessalonians 2:1-3; II Timothy 4:3-4; Revelation 3:15-20). Christ's mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Word was fulfilled, but the Body was not complete; there was a breach between the Church Ages and the Seals. Brother Branham's Message delivered in the gap brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form, calling, "Come up hither, and I will show you things which must be after Laodicea" (Revelation 4:1-2; Matthew 25:6). By grace we crossed over the breach to make up the Capstone with rapturing faith (Zechariah 4:6-10).
(Shelah, whose mother was a Canaanite, was associated with the Moabites. His descendants were taken captive by Nebuchadnezzar and returned to Jerusalem—I Chronicles 5:21-23; Nehemiah 11:5). It seems the people of Israel paid scant regard to God's requirement that they should not marry into the Canaanites. And when Solomon married Moabite, Ammonite, Edomite, Zidonian and Hittite women "of the nations the Lord commanded You shall not marry," God said, because of this evil He would destroy the Kingdom and leave only one tribe with Judah (I Kings 11:1-13 see also Ezra 9:1-3; 10).
God identifies the Edomites with the Serpent seed Zidonians and Hittites. So you see how important it was that He preserved Judah's lineage through Tamar to Joseph, Mary's husband, because it could not have proceeded through the children of Judah's three sons (Matthew 1:3-16).
Returning to our narrative about Esau, God told Rebekah that of the two nations in her womb, one would be stronger than the other, and that the elder shall serve the younger. Esau was far stronger than Jacob, although the latter obtained the birthright and blessing.
The Bible tells us Jacob called Esau "Edom," meaning "red," after he exchanged his birthright for a red lentil stew (Genesis 25:30; 36:1). Following the death of his father Isaac, Esau moved to the land of Seir where he'd begun to establish himself during Jacob's absence in Haran, according to Isaac's prophetic blessing, directing his attention away from the fertile soils around Hebron and "living by his sword," along with 400 men under his command (Genesis 27:39-40; 32:6).
Edom's northern frontier was Moab, below present-day Jordan, at the valley of Zared. East of the river Jordan, the Edomite domain extended to the edge of the Arabian Desert. West of Jordan river, it shared a common border with Judah's south-eastern boundary as far as Kadesh Barnea, then went south to the Red Sea port of Elath on the Gulf of Aqaba.
The destruction of Pharaoh's forces and Israel's miraculous deliverance at the Red Sea had repercussions in Edom and throughout Canaan (Exodus 15:14-15). Israel's first armed opposition came from the Edomite tribe of Amalek (Exodus 17:8-16; Genesis 36:12, 16).
At the conclusion of the 40-years wandering, Moses' respectful request for safe conduct over the King's Highway through Edom was rejected and the Edomite king marshalled a strong force to block any Israelite intrusion (Numbers 20:14-21).
Israel had been commanded "do not detest an Edomite for he is your brother" (Deuteronomy 23:7-8). However, there was enmity on Edom's part as Esau had married the Canaanites. Not only the aggressive Amalekite tribe, but all Edom followed a course of opposition to Israel. Saul successfully waged war against them (I Samuel 14:47-48). Yet the head over his shepherds was the Edomite, Doeg, who informed Saul against David. And when Saul's officers refused to slay the priests of Nob, Saul used Doeg to accomplish a wholesale massacre (I Samuel 21:7, 22:9-18).
David as king won a major victory over the Edomites, killing all the men of military age and stationed garrisons throughout Edom. The remaining population became subject to Israel (I Kings 11:15-16; II Samuel 8:14; I Chronicles 18:13), and the "yoke" of Jacob rested heavily on the neck of Edom (Genesis 27:40; Numbers 24:18).
Solomon developed a shipping enterprise in Eziongeber beside Eloth on the Red sea in Edom (I Kings 9:26). A depleted male population prevented Edom from lifting the Israelite yoke, although Hadad, an escaped prince, led a resistance movement against northern Israel out of Syria (I Kings 11:14-22). Under Jehoram Edom revolted, threw off the Judean yoke and remained in revolt.
The Edomites sealed their doom when Babylon conquered Judah and Jerusalem in 607BC, as they urged on the devastators rejoicing at Judah's tragedy with cries of "raze it, raze it, even to the foundation thereof" (Psalm 137:7). In their enmity and desire for revenge they turned over Judean escapees for slaughter. Others who found refuge in Edom finally fled down to Egypt (Jeremiah 40:11-12; 43:5-7). Edom joined neighbouring peoples in plundering the land, and planned to take over the abandoned country of Israel and Judah, boasting against Jehovah. Jeremiah warned the king of Edom to come under the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar (Jeremiah 27:1-7).
As early as King Uzziah's rule, Joel and Amos pronounced God's condemnation of Edom for its unrelenting fury against Israel by the unmerciful use of the sword (Amos 1:6, 11-12). By its vicious opposition to Judah, Edom forfeited its title to the land granted to Esau (Joel 3:19; Amos 9:11-12). And God spoke through Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Obadiah that the treatment meted out to Judah would also become Edom's portion (Lamentations 4:21; Ezekiel 25:12-14; 35:1-15; 36:3-5; Obadiah 1-16).
About the middle of the sixth century BC came the time for Edom to drink from the cup of Jehovah's wrath when Nabonidus of Babylon conquered Edom (Jeremiah 25:15-17, 21). Israelite soldiers were in his troops, fulfilling, in part at least Ezekiel 25:14, "I will lay My vengeance upon Edom by the hand of My people Israel." This was also a partial fulfilment of Obadiah 1 and 7 which said that Edom's "allies," "confederates," and "trusted friends" would "deceive," "prevail against" and "set a trap under" them. Here we may see a reference to the Babylonians who, although in the days of Nebuchadnezzar were willing to allow them a share in Judah's loss, under Nabonidus curbed once and for all the commercial and mercantile ambitions of Edom.
By the fourth century BC the Nabateans, (descendants of Ishmael's first-born, Nebaioth) became established in Mount Seir. According to Sir William Smith, they ultimately controlled the whole of the region of the Gulf of Akaba, and from this position of power, they commanded the trade between Arabia and the West. (They established regular caravans between Leuce Come, a port of the Red Sea in the north-west part of Arabia, and the port of Rhinocolura (El Arish) on the Mediterranean on the frontiers of Palestine and Egypt. From Rhinocolura, the Nabataean trade route went to Smyrna and then on to Broussa, a great city of Bithynia on the northern side of Mount Olympus. In Broussa the Nabataeans established a flourishing colony.
The Edomites were never able to return and found themselves pushed out of their own country into in the Negeb south of Judah. Hebron was their chief city and eventually southern Judea became known as Idumea. According to Josephus, John Hyrcanus I subjected them some time between 130-120BC and compelled them to convert to Judaism or die. Thereafter they were gradually absorbed by the Israelites, and over time became known as "Jews".
When in AD70 the Romans under Titus besieged Jerusalem, Josephus tells how 20,000 Edomites who since 125BC had been become circumcised and recognized as Jews, volunteered to support the Judeans against Rome. But once admitted they pillaged the city, raping and killing, and not sparing even the priests. The Roman conqueror slew them, and Edom ceased to exist as a separate people.
Isaiah earlier foretold how the sword-wielding Edomites would come under God's own sword of judgment—all classes, great and small becoming sacrificial animals "cherem" devoted to destruction (Isaiah 34:2-8).
Edom was to become like Sodom and Gomorrah, uninhabited for all time (Jeremiah 49:7-22). Edom's ancestors who were Cain's progeny, would fulfil God's pronouncement that they'd be wanderers without inheritance on the earth (Genesis 3:11-14; Jeremiah 49:10). And as Moses foretold, they have been driven out, scattered and beaten in sunder throughout the world. Almost every European kingdom has at some time in history expelled them from its borders for their evil, or restricted them to particular occupations and quarters.
Edom would be called, "the land of wickedness," and "the people whom the Lord has denounced forever" (Malachi 1:1-5). Edom is emblematic of the hard-set enemies of God and His people: natural Israel; the elect Church, and all of Adam's race (Genesis 3:15).
In the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, Rome will break her covenant with Edom who will join their Communist creation and destroy the false church, leading to Armageddon. Isaiah portrays Christ, having trod the winepress of God's vengeance alone, returning from Bozrah, Edom's most prominent city, in bloodstained garments after slaughtering His enemies (Isaiah 63:1-6). But I'm getting ahead of our story.
We'll leave our historical review for the present, having traced what is the most influential branch of the Serpent's seed from the Garden of Eden to the days of the Maccabees when John Hyrcanus forcibly converted them to Judaism. Previously we saw that when Jesus was born, Israel's king under Rome was the Idumean Herod who ordered that all boys in Bethlehem from two years and under should be killed. And in the days of His flesh, the Edomite population in Judah was predominant.
Their goal has always been to seize Jacob's birthright as Cain sought to steal Abel's birthright and Lucifer tried to steal Michael's inheritance. They plan to establish themselves as the elite, the master race, and rulers of this earth. They style themselves "God's Chosen People" when they are the people of His never-ending curse.
They killed Israel's Messiah and heir to the Throne of David. They plan an Edomite messiah and king. Although Israel's Messiah and King rose from the dead and is alive forever more they could not receive a son of the House of David (Luke 16:31).
With the destruction of Jerusalem under Titus Edom ceased to exist under its own identity. They had assumed leadership over Israel as Jews. They had usurped the Temple worship with the synagogue and supplanted the Law and prophets by the Talmud. Now they began to conspire how they might divide and destroy the Church of Jesus Christ, seize Jacob's birthright and rule this world. What do you think the United Nations is about? Its purpose is to this end.
God richly bless you Brethren, as you prove these things in Moses, and in the Psalms and the prophets. Confirm their prophecies with the declared aims and objectives of the UN, and search the records of modern history to discover the identity of those who formed the United Nations in London, during the Second World War. In 1939, General Douglas announced he believed one of the "real" objectives of World War II was to establish an International Police State. His foresight was vindicated in the Declaration of the United Nations which was signed by 26 nations on January 1, 1942. Obviously some inner group formulated the Declaration which set out the war aims of the Allied powers, and by hindsight it can be seen that post-war aims, leading towards World Government, were involved. Following the Dumbarton Oaks (Washington) Conference in 1944, a formal organization began to emerge.
G. E. Griffin wrote, "In the two decades since the UN was created, it's expanded into a giant international bureaucracy with tentacles reaching into every sphere of human activity from matrimony to garbage collection . . . we have not seen the real United Nations—its purpose, its philosophy, its ultimate goals" (The Fearful Master, 1974).
Follow the trail of the serpent. You will find this sin-sick world is run by criminals. Sons of Cain.
Brother Branham said, "Satan hates two Books of the Bible more than all others . . . he is always attacking the Book of Genesis and the Book of Revelation. In both of these Books we find Satan's origin, his awful ways and his destruction. That is why he attacks them. He hates to be exposed, ("He who controls the past, controls the future"), and in those Books he is exposed for exactly what he is. Jesus said about Satan, "He has no part in Me and I have no part in him." The Devil would like to prove that different; but he cannot, so he does all he can (to hide the true identity of the Serpent's seed, to steal the birthrights of Jacob/Israel, Jesus Christ and His Church), to destroy confidence in the Word. But when the church disbelieves Satan and believes the Spirit's revelation of the Word, the gates of hell cannot prevail against her" (Seven Church Ages, 14:4).
