Bible Believers' Newsletter 1124
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
It is so good to see you; today we return to our study of Israel's Seventh Trumpet. I trust the squeeze is putting you in desperation, calling upon Jesus to lift you to a higher plane of maturity fitting you for "speaking conditions" to manifest that you are a Son or Daughter of God. So I have sought to more concisely define and chronologically place the earthquakes under the Seventh Trumpet, Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial and tie Brother Branham's Message to scripture. The unprecedented concussion of nature at the start of Daniel's Seventieth Week when the Mount of Olives cleaves will be so overwhelming that Muslims will invade Israel by reflex action rather than thought to defend the site of the demolished Dome of the Rock, and non-Semitic self-styled Jews will abandon the land that was never their heritage, and after almost three thousand years in exile the children of Jacob will return to the Land of their Covenant.

Coronavirus that Never Was
September 12, 2020 — In March 2020, international best-selling author, Dr. Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA, was the first medical doctor to describe the coronavirus pandemic as a hoax. Here he analyzes how it was perpetrated from its beginning and shows how politicians and drug-industry tycoons have used it to make the rest of us victims of the greatest crime in history. This is a brilliant and perceptive summary of the first five months of the pandemic that never was. Since there is no visual content in the video other than Dr. Coleman reading his commentary, the program is listed as an audio recording. However, the clarity of the analysis and the captivating way in which Dr. Coleman tells this story will have you hooked before the one-minute mark. You will not miss the visuals mainly because you will see everything in your mind. Full story: redpilluniversity.org
CDC: More Deaths by Suicide that by COVID-19
September 6, 2020 — The Director of the CDC has come out and bluntly stated that there have been far more deaths from suicides and drug overdoses than from COVID-19. The leftist media will no doubt claim the CDC is wrong. The social media firms will scrub any mention that this COVID has been a hoax. These people from Jeff Zucker the head of CNN to Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum are allegedly responsible for the rising death toll destroying everyone's future. These two individuals have allegedly been responsible for more deaths than COVID-19. Zucker because he personally hates Trump and is a disgrace to CNN while Schwab is the typical academic fool who has never left his ivory tower to see how the real-world functions. Schwab prefers his theory of stakeholder responsibility where corporations owe no allegiance to shareholders—something the Big Techs seem to have adopted.
Unemployment globally has now exceeded 300 million people. In the United States, most people lose their jobs and they also lose their healthcare. None of these Marxist media organizations from the New York Times, Washington Post, and CNN who lead the way, will ever take responsibility nor will they ever stop in their attempt to constantly destroy the economy on the hopes that no president is reelected during an economic decline—i.e. Herbert Hoover or George Bush.
The Director of the CDC said: "But there has been another cost that we've seen, particularly in high schools" . . . Everyone should write to the Attorney General and demand a criminal investigation into Zucker, Gates, Soros, Schwab, and of course Fauci. These people may have far more blood on their hands than anyone knows on a global scale . . . Full story: armstrongeconomics.com

Confronting Lies about the Virus: Fear Campaign no Scientific Basis
September 7, 2020 — The data and concepts have been manipulated with a view to sustaining the fear campaign. The estimates are meaningless. The figures have been hyped to justify the lockdown and the closure of the national economy, with devastating economic and social consequences. The Virus is held responsible for poverty and mass unemployment.
Confirmed by prominent scientists as well as by official public health bodies including the WHO and the CDC, Covid-19 is a public health concern but it is NOT a dangerous virus. According to the WHO definition, Corona viruses are a large family which may cause illness in animals or humans. Several corona viruses are known to cause respiratory infections in humans, ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered corona virus disease is COVID-19.
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, dry cough, and tiredness . . . These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but have only very mild symptoms. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without hospital treatment. Around 1 out of every 5 people who contract COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and experience difficulty breathing.
According to Anthony Fauci (Head of NIAID), H. Clifford Lane and Robert R. Redfield (Head of CDC) in the New England Journal of Medicine . . . the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.

Comment: The present epidemic accords with the 2010 simulation "Lock Step" devised by the Rockefeller Foundation in conjunction with the Global Business Network. "Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development" describes a corona virus-like pandemic that triggers the imposition of police-state controls on movement, economy and other activities. Here is a concise analysis of Rockefeller Foundation's scenario.
(Lat.) 'praemonitus, praemunitus'—to be forewarned is to be forearmed . . . the genocidal pantomime of Event 201 was filmed with Drs. Fauci and Birx, WHO (whose major source of funds in the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation), CDC, Johns Hopkins, Gates' GAVI vaccine alliance, Google labs, Gilead Sciences, Moderna and interested parties. Newsletter 1100 explained how in 2017 the World Bank announced the creation of "specialized bonds" that would be used to fund the previously created Pandemic Emergency Financing Facility (PEF) in the event of an 'officially (WHO) recognized' pandemic . . . bonds would expire if any of six deadly pandemics hit, including corona virus, before maturity . . . 'insiders' could sell their bonds beforehand; WHO (created in 1948 by the Rockefeller Foundation) backed the WB's initiative.
Feckless Fauci Foments Fear to keep the Sheep in Line
September 11, 2020 — First, businesses were fraudulently shut down by the lies of Dr. Fauci and gang, now they're being demolished by communist subversives in states run by democrats.
Marxist protestors have free rein, but many taxpayers who run businesses are literally eradicated never to rise again. It's purposeful; it drags down the economic resurgence after Dr. Fauci's false models were given to President Trump. Those models came from China's good friend, Dr. Tedros Adhanom, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) and were used to purposely destroy President Trump's strong economy. Here's the entire Fauci timeline on Covid.
"Tedros is really an outstanding person," Fauci said during the March 25 coronavirus task force briefing. "I've known him from the time that he was the minister of Health of Ethiopia." (Where he covered up the country's cholera.) But President Trump knew the truth and tweeted, "The WHO really blew it. For some reason, funded largely by the United States, yet very China centric" . . .
Thanks to One America News, a new study from UCLA and Stanford University finds for the average 50-64-year-old, the chances of dying of Covid are one in 19.1 million . . . The average person in an average county has a one in 3,836 chance of contracting Covid . . . odds of being hospitalized are vanishingly small even in the "at risk" category . . . chances of getting the virus and needing hospitalization are one in 852,000. These figures were from May, when the deaths were 16 times higher than they were last week. The risk of dying from a car crash is one in 114 . . . risks for keeping the country locked down falls apart . . .
Center for Disease Control (CDC) report shows 94 percent of Covid-19 deaths in the US had contributing conditions. Only six percent of people who allegedly died of the virus were healthy. Thus, only 9,200 deaths have been allegedly caused by Covid alone, not the 176,000 previously "reported." The other 166,800 deaths had comorbidities like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, emphysema etc. Nursing homes and assisted living facilities accounted for 45 percent of Covid deaths. Those in the northeast were hardest hit due to policy decisions by democrat politicians who discharged seniors with active Covid-19 infections from hospitals to long-term care facilities. Eliminate those numbers, and Covid is far less dangerous than seasonal flu . . . Full story: newswithviews.com
Belarusian President claims IMF and World Bank offered Him a Bribe to impose COVID Restrictions
September 7, 2020 — Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said last month via Belarusian Telegraph Agency, BelTA, that the World Bank and IMF offered him a bribe of $940 million USD in the form of "Covid Relief Aid." In exchange for $940 million USD, the World Bank and IMF demanded that the President of Belarus:
• imposed "extreme lockdown on his people"
• force them to wear face masks
• impose very strict curfews
• impose a police state
• crash the economy
Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko REFUSED the offer and stated that he could not accept such an offer and would put his people above the needs of the IMF and World Bank. This is NOT a conspiracy. You may research this yourself. He actually said this!
Now IMF and World Bank are bailing out failing airlines with billions of dollars, and in exchange, they are FORCING airline CEOs to implement VERY STRICT POLICIES such as FORCED face mask covers on EVERYONE, including SMALL CHILDREN, whose health will suffer as a result of these policies.
And if it is true for Belarus, then it is true for the rest of the world! The IMF and World Bank want to crash every major economy with the intent of buying over every nation's infrastructure at cents on the dollar! Full story: armstrongeconomics.com
Bosses: give Americans a Permanent 60% Pay Cut
September 9, 2020 — For the benefit of those who were educated in California public schools, a 60% pay cut means that your $20 an hour after taxes job will soon be paying $8 an hour . . .
Economists can measure the severity of a coming Depression by counting up all the Unpayable Debts. As Dr. Hudson said, "One thing we know to be true of Unpayable Debts is that they are never paid." We can cancel debts as Germany did in 1923 when hyperinflation would let a farmer pay off his mortgage by selling one egg. In 1933 America debts were cancelled in bankruptcy courts and in foreclosures. Our Money supply contracted 33%. Under 100% Money there is no monetary contraction. And no bank runs. We are headed to the Greatest Depression in 500 years because we have never had so many Unpayable Debts . . . Full story: vidrebel.wordpress.com
Comment: Quoting Amos 8:11 Brother Branham prophesied, "When God sends forth a message and tells the people, and they don't receive it, then He withdraws His servant and sends His plagues: famine, death, spiritually speaking, physically also. You watch for a depression, brother. You think you've seen something; you just wait after while. You haven't seen nothing. You think you're dying for a good spiritual revival; you wait till after a bit. You just wait, long and cry to hear the Word of God. The Bible said so. "There'll be a famine in the last days," said the prophet, "and not for bread and water alone, but for hearing the true Word of God." But that voice will be quiet in the [Currabubula] wilderness somewhere hid away (61-0319, Jezebel Religion, par. 100).
2021 Davos World Economic Forum postponed until Summer
August 27, 2020 — The World Economic Forum has decided to reschedule the Annual Meeting 2021 in Davos to early next summer . . . During the week of 25 January, the Forum will digitally convene high-level "Davos Dialogues" where key global leaders will share their views on the state of the world in 2021 . . . Since February, almost 1,800 organizations from business, government and civil society have joined the Forum's COVID Action Platform following the outbreak of the pandemic. In September, the Forum's Sustainable Development Impact Summit will bring the core principles of the Great Reset into focus, asking all of us how we can contribute to a more sustainable and inclusive future.

Comment: Bill Gates, George Soros, Chancellor Angela Merkel . . . and whoever wins the White House in November . . . are about to lay the groundwork of wealth creation (and wealth confiscation) to take the world through to 2050. The pandemic has created a unique opportunity for the financial elites squeezing out the middle class and treading the rest under foot.
Not So Green
September 9, 2020 — Solar energy is very dilute, so solar collectors usually cover huge areas of flat arable land, stealing farmland, starving wild herbs and grasses of sunlight and creating "Solar Deserts".
Wind turbines steal energy from winds which often bring moisture from the ocean. These walls of turbines then create rain shadows, producing more rain near the turbines and more droughts down-wind. Turbines work best along ridge lines where eagles also seek thermals, so birds and bats get chopped up by these whirling scythes. They also annoy neighbours with noise and increase bushfire risk.
They even spread their wall of wind towers offshore, so that less wind and rain even reaches the shore. Not green at all.
Now green dreamers want to use our precious water to manufacture hydrogen in a round-robin electrolytic process that consumes far more energy than it can ever produce. Electrolysis consumes nine tonnes of water plus heaps of electricity to make one tonne of hydrogen. This processed water is not recovered until the hydrogen is burned (unlike water in steam turbines where most water is reused and some escapes to the atmosphere via cooling towers.)
Hydrogen is a low-energy explosive gas. Collecting, storing and exporting it will be a hazardous business and producing it will consume scads of Australian water and electricity to generate trendy "green" fuel for Asia. Burning this fuel will release pure Australian water into polluted Asian skies. But the Australian Government is funding hydrogen speculation with $70 million.
Green Energy isn't green. It has a huge cost in rare metals; it creates toxic waste problems; solar panels create solar deserts; turbines chop birds and steal wind and rain from inland areas; and now they want to steal fresh water and energy to export low-energy explosive hydrogen.
In contrast, coal is fossil sunshine. Burning it releases new energy for industry and its combustion products bring great benefits for the green world—water vapour, carbon dioxide plant food, and valuable plant micro-nutrients. Why export our sunshine, wind and fresh water via hydrogen while leaving our abundant fossil sunshine locked underground as "politically stranded assets"? — Viv Forbes
Israel's Seventh Trumpet – Part II
The earthquakes prophesied under the manifestation of the Seventh Trumpet, Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial are described by many scriptures in the Old and New Testaments. Concurrent earthquakes, one of unprecedented magnitude in the United States of America, and one in Israel will shift earth on its axis at the close of the Gentile dispensation and the commencement of the Day of the Lord. In about fifty days "we who are alive and remain" will be translated and Israel's two prophets will receive their anointing to minister Israel's "former rain" for the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week of seven prophetic years. In the midst of the Seventieth Week another earthquake in Israel will mark the resurrection and ascension of Israel's two Prophets, thereafter Israel's "latter rain" will quicken their souls to new birth, and "without hand" the Lord will take the battle to those nations that have besieged Jerusalem and those whose names are not in the Lamb's Book of Life.
Earthquakes marking the End of the Gentile Dispensation and Christ's Second or (Gk.) Parousia Coming to Israel
Revelation 6:12-17, "When the Lamb opened the Sixth Seal I saw a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the whole moon became as blood; and the stars of heaven fell to earth as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a strong wind. And the sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the strong, and every slave, and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; and said to the mountains and to the rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: for the great day of His wrath is come; and who is able to stand?"
Revelation 8:1, 5, "When He had opened the Seventh Seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour . . . And [when the short space of time had expired at the opening of the Sixth Seal] the angel took the censer, and he filled it with the fire of the altar, and cast it to the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake".
Revelation 11:15-19, "And the Seventh Trumpet angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdom of this world has become the kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever . . . And the temple of God was seen to be open in heaven, and there was seen in His temple the Ark of His Testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail".
Revelation 16:17-21, "And the seventh angel poured out his Seventh Vial into the air; and there came a great Voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, "It is done, [the plagues of the Seven Vials have been poured out" (Revelation 15:8). And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, [sinking Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth's crust], so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city [Jerusalem] was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give her the cup of the wine of His fierce wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And huge hailstones, each about a hundred pounds came down from heaven upon men; and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was extremely severe".
Zechariah 14:4-5, "In that day His feet shall stand upon the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and an earthquake shall cleave the Mount of Olives in the middle from east to west forming a very large valley; and half of the mountain will remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. And you will flee by the valley of My mountains; for the valley of My mountains will reach to Beth[-azel]: yes, you will flee just as you fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the Lord My God will come, and all the saints with Him".
Isaiah 29:1, 6 confirms that Jerusalem will be punished with earthquakes. This earthquake will terminate the Gentile dispensation and on the third day the first resurrection will begin; after forty-seven days "we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the Clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord" (I Thessalonians 4:17; Matthew 27:50-56).
Amos 1:1, "The Words of Amos, who was among the herdsmen of Tekoa, which words he saw [first in a vision and afterward recorded] concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel, two years before the earthquake [mentioned in Zechariah 14:5c)." Under Jeroboam II, the Northern kingdom of Israel stood at the zenith of its powers as the United States today is "materially rich and in need of nothing, knowing not it is wretched, and miserable, bankrupt of faith, spiritually blind and naked of the Blood of Christ" (Revelation 3:17-20). This picture directly shows that beneath the outward appearance of prosperity lay deeply-rooted moral decay in close connection with apostasy. Amos 7 – 9 recounts certain visions in which he has seen the fate of Israel and its US antitype under the earthquakes that will manifest at the Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial (Revelation 6:12-17; 16:18-19) and the repetition of the spiritual famine Israel has suffered since AD30 and Christendom has experienced since 1963 (Amos 8:8-11) interspersed with historical details and threats of punishment, but at last passing into the promise of a new deliverance and prosperity for Israel. Then in Amos 9:9-15 he sees the restoration of all twelve tribes under the House of David in the millennium (Acts 1:6; 15:16-18).
It was impossible that a prophet of Jehovah, although a citizen of Israel, should lose sight of Judah; for Judah was the kingdom of David, and it was to Judah alone that the promises were related, which formed the sure ground of the Messianic hope that the Lord would not cast off His people utterly and forever, but that a time should come when they should rise gloriously out from their desolation.
Hosea 1:7, 11, "I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the Lord their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen . . . Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together [when the fullness of the Gentiles has come in], and appoint themselves one Head (Hosea 3:5), and they shall come up out of the land [of the Gentiles among whom they sojourn and return to the Land of their Covenant] for great shall be the day of Jezreel [the Seed of God]" (Zechariah 4:7; 14:9). Joel 2:10, 31; 3:15-16 also speak of the earthquake that will close the Gentile dispensation.
"The abomination of desolation" mentioned in Matthew 24:15 was the eagle pennants of General Titus' legionnaires scanning Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives. The Temple was razed in that war, "and not one stone was left upon another" as Jesus foretold (Matthew 24:2). Omar took Jerusalem in AD636; the construction of es Sakhra commenced in AD685 and it was dedicated in AD692. The Dome of the Rock will stand to desolate the temple site until the close of the Gentile dispensation (Daniel 9:27; Luke 21:24; Romans 11:25; COD, 74:97-98; 616:109). The earthquake under discussion will demolish es Sakhra and Muslims will invade Israel which for the non-Semitic so-called Jews is tactically indefensible. Simultaneously Another earthquake will sink Los Angeles and much of California beneath the Pacific; south west Arizona will be the Pacific coast and Phoenix, elevation 1,080ft, will have ocean views. On January 26, 1963, before the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International Convention in Phoenix the Lord spoke through His prophet expressing His complete displeasure with them and their system, "like so many others, they were now just another organization" (Revelation 3:17-20). After stating the Lord's anger, he was whirled around by the Holy Spirit in two circles, and as he left the platform he cried with a loud voice, "Come out of her My people" (Revelation 18:1-4)!
Within moments the international directors were summoned to a hastily arranged executive session. There nineteen men passed a motion stating that "No longer would William Branham be invited as a speaker to FGBMFI functions." The motion passed seventeen to two. Following the passing of the motion, Carl Williams and Clay Sonmore (both executive vice-presidents of the FGBMFI) tendered their resignations if this motion was left to stand and remain on record. In deference to them as persons whose resignations might make waves, the motion was rescinded and removed from the record.
Even though most of these men re-voted to remove the motion from the record, they remained convinced that the ministry of this Prophet should be curtailed and effectively side-lined. From that day they despised the Word of the Lord. They murmured against the Prophet that God sent to the church of Laodicea. On February 28 the Lord Jesus Christ appeared in the heavens wigged as a judge looking down upon Phoenix, and the Pentecostal church along with the Seven Church Ages ended on March 8. William Branham was vindicated, like Micaiah in the days of Jezebel's 400 prophets (I Kings 22; Investments; Revelation 11:13).
Zechariah 14:1-2 says, "When the Day of the Lord comes, your possessions will be divided in your presence. For the Lord will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, the houses plundered, and the women raped [by Muslim invaders]; and half of the city shall be exiled in the mass exodus of non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews to their former host nations, but the rest of the people (blood Israelites and Semitic Palestinians) shall not be cut off from the city"—to be declared a corpus separatum governed by the Judaeo-Roman church (Daniel 9:27; 11:36; Joel 3:1-3; Zechariah 3:8-9; Revelation 16:19). East Jerusalem will be Palestine's capital and West Jerusalem Israel's capital as the self-styled Jews agreed to in UN Resolution 181 (November 27, 1949).
In one day many millions will perish in this convulsion of earthquakes, volcanoes and tidal waves. The US dollar and global economy will collapse and all nations will come under martial law. Christ's Bride will be at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the sky. Brother Branham prophesied that at this time Russia, encircled by perplexed, temporarily leaderless US and NATO nuclear forces, will invade mainland USA. "Sin has to be paid for. No matter what nation it is, or who it is . . . it's going to be paid for. And a bunch of brutal, ungodly, whisker-jawed, communistic soldiers would grab your wives and ravish them, your young girls. And you'd stand and like it . . . we are weighed in the balance and found wanting" (Zechariah 14:2; Isaiah 13:9:18; Luke 21:25; II Peter 3:7-10; 58-0108, Handwriting on the Wall, par. 77, 84-90; 58-0309, Handwriting on the Wall, par. 121, 152-155; 56-0902, Handwriting on the Wall, par. 132-133, 168-170; 56-0509, The Invasion of the United States).
Then incarnate by Satan, Rome's Pope will form a federation of world religions on the false pretext that Russia intends to establish totalitarian communist one world government. Rome will confirm the covenant of Daniel 9:27 with the Jewish banksters of the City of London and agree to refinance the US dollar with gold backing. With Russia sidelined and the dollar refinanced peace will be restored under the totalitarian Judaeo-Roman global government Lucifer offered to Jesus Christ if He would do obeisance (Matthew 4:8-9).
The First Committee of the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine (UNSCOP), on which each of the then fifty-five members of the United Nations was represented, held twelve meetings from May 6 to May 13, 1947, using the facilities for simultaneous interpretation available at Lake Success to decide the make-up of UNSCOP that would determine the future of Palestine [UN docs. A/C.l/P.V.46-57 (May 6-13, 1947)]. The upshot of those meetings was that "all nations [the United Nations] . . . have parted My land" by partitioning Palestine, and will part it when UN Resolution 181 of 1947 is enforced following these events (Daniel 11:39; Zechariah 14:2).
Owing to the destruction of es Sakhra by the earthquake, the children of Jacob—no longer welcomed by their Muslim host nations in the Middle East and North Africa—will return to the Land of their Covenant without "fear of the Jews"—the "mixed multitude" having departed for "the flesh pots, where we did eat bread to the full." An examination of population statistics in Jewish Encyclopaedias shows that over 90% of so-called Jews and Israelis are not Semitic. Isaiah 11:11-16 states "When the Lord sets His hand again the second time to recover Israel" He will gather Ephraim's ten tribes from the Middle East and North Africa—not Europe or the United States ["which they won't escape from" (COD, p. 97:235)]—and Judah and Benjamin from "the four corners of the earth." This exposes the egregious error of British Israel and Christian Identity cults and "white supremscists" (so-called), which imagine Israel's near Kinsman Jesus Christ was a white Man when Israelites and their Semitic relations are not fair skinned.
Speaking of His 'parousia' Coming to Israel at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal Jesus said, "Then the sign of the Son of man will appear in the sky: and all the tribes of the Earth [who had rejected Him will] mourn [and hide themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; and say to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb when they are pricked in their conscience. Not until three and a half years later will the 144,000] see [by belated revelation that] the Son of man had already come in theophany as the Pillar of Cloud or Shekinah with power and great glory" (Isaiah 13:6-10; 34:4; 54:10; 64:1-2; Jeremiah 4:24; Ezekiel 38:20; Joel 2:1-2, 10-11; Micah 1:3-4; Nahum 1:5-6; Zechariah 14:4-5; Matthew 24:3b, 30-31; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7; 6:14-17; 16:20). Following the earthquake at the start of the first half of the Seventieth Week Israel will be defeated (Zechariah 14:2) and will "flee by the valley of God's mountains".
The Earthquake in Israel marking the Resurrection and Ascension of Israel's Two Prophets Early in the Second Half of the Week
The prophecies of Zechariah 12 and 13 focus on the final deliverance and salvation of Israel that will take place in the second half of the Week once they receive the realization and revelation of Christ's parousia Coming in the first half of the Week (Zechariah 14:3-5).
Revelation 11:1-3 belongs to chapter 10. Chapter 11 should begin with the parenthesis of Revelation 11:4-13, identifying Israel's "witness es" as "the two anointed ones that stand by the Lord of the whole earth" represented on the golden Mercy Seat over the Ark of the Covenant and between whom the Lord displayed His Shekinah glory before Israel's high priest when he entered the Holy of Holies on Israel's annual Day of Atonement (Zechariah 4). On that day the sanctuary was cleansed of the national and individual sins accumulated over the previous year. Revelation 11 describes the three and a half year Supernatural ministry of Israel's two prophets whose martyred bodies will be viewed worldwide as they lie unburied in the streets of Jerusalem for three and a half days.
Now we should examine Zechariah 12:1 – 14:2 because these chapters contain a series of parentheses previewing what will come to pass in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week with the earthquake of Revelation 12:13-17.
After the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, in the second half of the Week, one earthquake will swallow the militia of the Image unto the Beast, mark the resurrection and ascension of Israel's 'Moses' and 'Elijah,' and slay seven thousand in retribution for slandering God's prophets.
Revelation 12:13-16, "When the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman [Israel] which brought forth the Man Child [Jesus Messiah]. And to the woman were given the two wings [Israel's two witnesses] of the great eagle [our Lord Jesus (Exodus 19:4; Isaiah 40:31)], that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place [the Land of the Covenant], where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, [the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week] from the face of the serpent. [Confirmation that when Satan is cast down to earth at the close of the Gentile dispensation the citizens of the modern Israel state will not be Semitic Israelites but self-styled non-Semitic Jews. With the destruction of es Sakhra, the children of Jacob, will no longer be welcome in the Muslim lands and I expect these refugees will hasten to Israel as non-Semitic Israelis will hasten their exodus. Such haste is necessary to ensure Israel's two witnesses a full three and a half year ministry]. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood [militia of the (once) Protestant US image of the beast forcing their trinitarian mark of the beast in the midst of the Week and into the second half of the Week]. The earth helped the woman, and earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood [of fanatical extremists] which the dragon cast out of his mouth. [This is the same earthquake as Revelation 11:13]. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed [elect 144,000 Israelites], which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ [foolish virgins] (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, 172:3; 175:1; 430:1; An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 37:5–42:1; COD 199:316; 1033:174; Taking Sides with Jesus, p. 755:57).
Revelation 11:13 is synchronous with the loud Voice from heaven calling to the resurrected Israelite prophets, "Come up here," and their ascension to heaven in the Cloud (Revelation 11:12). "There was a great earthquake (Revelation 12:16), and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake seven thousand men were slain: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven" (II Kings 1:9-15).
Zechariah 12:1 – 14:11 describe a series of parentheses prophesying what will come to pass "In that [future] day. When He comes with Clouds; and EVERY eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen" (Revelation 1:7).
Isaiah 29:1-8, "Woe to Ariel [the Lion of God], to Ariel, the city [of Jerusalem] where David dwelt, let them kill sacrifices year after year. Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be lamenting and sorrow: and she shall be as an Ariel [bloody altar-hearth] to Me. I will encircle and camp against you, by those enemies [the four Gentile world empires] whom I will assist and enable to take and destroy you. And you will be laid low, speaking from (beneath) the earth and your whispered speech will come humbly from the dust; and your voice will be like one that has a familiar spirit coming from the earth, and squeaking from the dust. But the multitude of strangers that encamp and fight against you; shall be like fine dust—dispersed by the least breath of air; and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that blows away: it will happen instantly, suddenly".
This brings us to Brother Branham's prophecy concerning Zechariah 14:4-5 and Isaiah 29:6 (65-0715, What is the Attraction on the Mountain, par. 96-99). "[Under the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet] She [Ariel, Jerusalem] shall be visited by the Lord of hosts with dreadful judgments, thunder, earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire. And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her stronghold and that distress her, shall be as the baseless fabric of a dream. As when an hungry man dreams and fancies that he has eaten; but when he awakens, his stomach is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreams and fancies he has drunk with eagerness and pleasure; but when he awakens, he is faint, and thirsty: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that wage war against Mount Zion".
Let us return to An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 36:4 – 41:1. "He is coming." He is coming in clouds, clouds of glory as when He was seen upon the Mount of Transfiguration, and His garments were shining as the power of God enfolded Him. And EVERY eye shall see Him. That means this is not the Rapture. This is when He comes to take over His rightful place as World Ruler. This is when those who have pierced Him with their creeds and denominational doctrines shall mourn, and all the people shall wail in terror because of Him Who is the Word.
This is the revelation story of Zechariah 12:9-14. Zechariah prophesied this about 2,500 years ago. It is just about to take place. Listen. "And it shall come to pass in that day, [when the 144,000 have recognized the logos after three and a half years of rhema] that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me Whom they have pierced . . ."
[Brother Branham explains, Christ's parousia will be ministered by Israel's 'Moses' and 'Elijah' throughout the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week when the tribulation falls on the sleeping virgins. He then restates the revelation story of Revelation 1:7 and Zechariah 12:9-14, explaining that this will not be received by the Israelites until the second half of the week. Then Rome will break her covenant with the Jewish bankers, martyr Israel's prophets and the tribulation will fall upon Israel (Revelation 13:15-18; 64-0830E, COD, p. 1,160:75)].
At that time [in the second half of the Week] it says that God is going to pour out His Spirit upon the house of Israel. It is the same Spirit that was poured upon the Gentiles in their day. "And they shall look upon Me Whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and they shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his first-born. In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadad-rimmon in the valley of Megiddon. And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart . . ." and each one of the houses apart when He comes in clouds of glory at His Second Coming. Those Jews that pierced Him shall see Him as it says in another Scripture, "Whence did You get those wounds?" and He will say, "In the house of My friends." Not only will it be a mournful time for the Jews who rejected Him as Messiah, but it will be a mournful time for those left of the Gentiles who have rejected Him as the Saviour of this day.
[Please take particular note]. There'll be weeping and wailing. The sleeping virgins will be wailing. They represent the church that refused to get oil (symbol of the Holy Spirit) in their lamps (symbol of the body or holder of the oil) until it was too late. It wasn't that they were not good people. They were virgins [to the Word but they had the rhema without the Logos] and that signifies a high moral order. But they didn't have oil in their lamps so they were cast out where there was wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Let us type this all out in Genesis where Joseph meets his brethren in Egypt and reveals himself to them. Genesis 45:1-7, "Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all of them that stood by him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his brethren. And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard. And Joseph said unto his brethren, I am Joseph; does my father yet live? And his brethren could not answer him; for they were troubled at his presence. And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt. Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that you sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life. For these two years has the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in which there shall neither be earing nor harvest. And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance . . ."
Now notice, that everywhere Joseph went they sounded a trumpet to announce his arrival. The people would scream, "Bow the knee to Joseph!" No matter what a man was doing, when that trumpet sounded he bowed the knee. He could have been selling something in the street, just reaching out for his money, but he had to stop and bend the knee when that trumpet blew. If he were even a performer or an actor, he would have to stop his act and bow the knee to Joseph when his presence was announced with that trumpet call. And one of these days everything in time will stand still when the [Seventh] trumpet of God shall sound, and the dead in Christ shall rise and morning will break eternal bright and fair. Everything will bow the knee then, for it is written, "Wherefore God has also highly exalted Him, and given Him a Name which is above every name; that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father" (Philippians 2:9-11).
[Throughout the Gentile dispensation the Gospel Trumpet sounded "the present Truth" by the ministry of the angel or messenger to each of the seven dispensations, and in each Church Age the elect "bowed the knee" by faith in the Message to his Age (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7; Revelation 2-3). Occasionally an Israelite would receive the faith and be baptized into Christ, but God deals with Israel as a nation, and the nation has been blinded to the faith so that we Gentiles might enter the Kingdom. Because Israel rejected grace through faith and the remission of past unbelief, their people bent under one of Seven Trumpets of Judgment (Revelation 8:6 – 9:21; 11:15; 15:1-4)].
But notice another glorious revelation in this typing of Joseph. Joseph, while in Egypt, was given a Gentile bride and through her he received a family of two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh. Joseph asked his father to bless the two boys. He placed them in front of Jacob so that Manasseh, the first-born would be on Jacob's right and Ephraim to the left. As Jacob was about to bless them he crossed his hands so that the right hand fell upon the younger. Joseph cried out, "Not so, father, this is the first-born to your right." But Jacob said, "God crossed my hands." Here in type we see that the blessing which belonged to the first-born (the
JewIsraelite) was given over to the younger (the Gentile) through the cross (crossed hands) of the Lord Jesus Christ. The blessing comes through the cross. Galatians 3:13-14, "Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangs on a tree; that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith." The blessing of Abraham came through the cross to the Gentiles. The Jews rejected the cross; therefore, Jesus got the Gentile bride.
Getting back to the story of Joseph meeting his brethren, you recall that not all the brethren came. Joseph knew that and insisted that all the brethren appear before him, or he could not make himself known unto them. Finally they brought the one that was missing, little Benjamin. It was little Benjamin, the full brother of Joseph, that set his soul on fire. And when our Joseph, even Jesus, comes to the people who have kept the Commandments of God and who have gone back to Palestine, His soul will be set on fire. Little Benjamin typifies the 144,000 Israelites from all over the earth who have gone back to Palestine for their redemption. They will be standing there ready to receive Him, Whom to know aright is Life eternal. They will say, "This is our God for Whom we have waited." Then they will see Him Whom they have pierced. And they will cry out in dismay, "Where did these awful wounds come from? How did it happen?" And they will wail and cry, every family apart, everyone apart in the agony of sorrow.
Now where will the Gentile Church be while Jesus is making Himself known to His brethren? Remember that the bride of Joseph with the two children were in the palace, for Joseph had commanded, "Let everyone leave me; put them all out from before me." So the Gentile bride was hidden in the palace of Joseph. Where will the Gentile Church go in the rapture? Into the palace. The bride will be taken off the earth. She will be caught up before the great tribulation to meet her Lord in the air. For three and one-half years while the retributive wrath of God is poured out, she will be in the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Then will He return, leaving His bride in "His Father's house," while He makes Himself known to His brethren.
At this very time, the antichrist covenant that the Jews have made with Rome will be broken (Daniel 9:27). Rome and her allies then send their troops to destroy all the God-fearing, Word-abiding Jews.
But as they come against the city to destroy it, there will appear in the heavens the sign of the coming of the Son of Man with His mighty armies to destroy them who have been destroying the earth (Isaiah 29:5-8; Revelation 11:13, 18; 12:16-17). With the enemy repulsed, Jesus then comes and presents Himself to the 144,000. Having seen His mighty acts of salvation, they have come to know His power. But also seeing His wounds and knowing that they had rejected Him even to that moment, causes them to cry out in the agony of terror and fear, even as did their brethren of old when they stood before Joseph, being sore afraid that they would be killed. But as Joseph said, "Don't be angry with yourselves. It is all right. God was in it all. He did it to preserve life." Even so will Jesus speak peace and love to them.
Why did the Jews reject Jesus? God was in it all. It was the only way that He could bring out the Gentile bride. He died on the cross to preserve the life of the Gentile Church.
Now these 144,000 are not in the bride. In Revelation 14:4 they are called virgins [to the Commandments] and they follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes. The fact that they have not defiled themselves with women [churches] shows that they are eunuchs (Matthew 19:12). The eunuchs were the keepers of the bridal chambers. They were attendants. Notice that they do not sit in the throne but are before the throne. No, they are not in the bride, but will be in the glorious millennial reign.
We then see that when these last of Israel have been joined in love to the Lord, and the enemy has been destroyed (Revelation 19:14-21), God will prepare His holy mountain, His new Garden of Eden for the bride and His and her attendants for the thousand year honeymoon upon the earth. As Adam and Eve were in the garden and did not finish out the thousand years, now Jesus our last Adam and His Eve (True Church) will fulfill all the plan of God.
Oh, how the Bible repeats itself. The scene of Joseph and his brethren is about to be repeated, for Jesus is coming soon.
And as we leave the type of Joseph, there is one more thing I want to bring to your attention about this end time. You recall that as Joseph stood before his brethren when Benjamin was not with them he spoke through an interpreter though he knew the Hebrew well. He spoke to his brethren in another tongue. Did you know that the first Gentile Age (the head of gold, Babylonian Age) went out with a message in tongues written on a wall? This age is going out the same way. The abundance of tongues in this day is a further proof that the Times of the Gentiles is over and God is turning back to Israel.
He is coming soon. The Alpha and Omega, the Prophet, Priest and King, the All in All, Lord God of Hosts, is coming soon. Even so Lord Jesus, the One and Only True God, come quickly (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 37:5–42:1)!
Zechariah 14:3, the Lord is said to come forth to fight for His people. Yes, He will, however according to verse 2 this cannot take place until after Jerusalem and Judah are defeated, UN Resolution 181 enforced, Palestinian statehood established, and Israel is born as a nation in one day. What we have quoted shows that the Lord will make His stand on the Mount of Olives as in the theophany upon the Mount of Transfiguration (Matthew 17:1-9) as promised in Acts 1:9-11, Zechariah 14:4 and Daniel 11:36 – 12:4. Looking beyond the rhema of these four scriptures we pass beyond the nuclear annihilation of Vatican City State and the united States to the theophany of our return with Jesus to defeat and cast the Beast and the false prophet into the Lake of Fire after Armageddon (Zechariah 19:20; 20:10), and the millennium beyond.
