"We focus on the PRESENT Truth -- what Jesus is doing NOW . . ." ISSN 1442-8660
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Good to be with you in fellowship once again.
In this Newsletter we will continue our study of the Seventh Vial through Revelation 18 which describes the actual judgment God executes upon the two Babylons here on earth. Please follow this commentary in your own Bibles to ensure that you receive the mind of God and not the mind of your brother in Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott
In March 1991, President Bush signed the anti-Christian "Noahide Laws" into law. Now America has PL 102-14 directly from the Talmud, soon to become part of the new Case Law superseding Bible-based Common Law. . . a Justice composed of vengeance and vitriol rather then integrity and mercy.
501(c)(3) is a status Federal Government grants churches that are "good obeyers" and lets the I.R.S. make the rules that govern churches and the pastor's sermons.
First-century Christians knew there were significant legal and theological ramifications to taking licenses from Caesar. Corporation originated in Roman Civil Law, 250 or so years prior to the birth of Christ and "the State is the sovereign" of all corporations. For the early church to incorporate would have been a public declaration that Caesar was sovereign over Christ. There is virtually no difference between modern corporations and those used by ancient Rome. Full story: http://hushmoney.org/DRK501c3.htm
Secret US Human Biological Experimentation
An informative chronology of medical experimentation in the U.S. from 1931 when Dr. Cornelius Rhoads, under the auspices of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Investigations infected human subjects with cancer cells, and later established the U.S. Army Biological Warfare facilities in Maryland, Utah, and Panama, then went to the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission where he began a series of radiation exposure experiments on American soldiers and civilian hospital patients. The chronology takes us to 1997 when eighty-eight members of Congress signed a letter demanding an investigation into bioweapons use and the Gulf War Syndrome.

The Two Babylons - Part X
"Nimrod's accomplishments were so monumental that the kingdom of Babylon was called the head of gold amongst all world governments. That his religion gained prominence is proven by the fact that Scripture identifies it with Satan completely in Isaiah Chapter 14 and in Revelation Chapters 17-18. And by history we can prove that it invaded the whole world and is the basis for every system of idolatry, and the theme of mythology, though the names of the gods differ in various sections of the land according to the language of the people. . . until Jesus reveals Himself to His brethren he will be worshipped and honored, though under a different name from Nimrod, and in a temple slightly different from the one in which he was originally adored" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, 182:1).
Isaiah 47:1-15 speaks of God's judgments upon natural Babylon to whom He entrusted Judah during the Captivity. These judgments type the judgment of Mystery Babylon under the Seventh Trumpet, Sixth Seal and the Seventh Vial.
Revelation 12:1-18:24 is in parenthesis. It expounds Genesis 3:15-16, showing how the natural seed of the Serpent "which say they are 'Jews', and are not", (whose fiat money golem will be crippled when their Hollywood Babylon is destroyed by earthquake), and the spiritual Serpent's seed of Mystery Babylon and her harlot daughter churches, which say they are Christians, and are not, persecute the Seed of the woman from the birth of Jesus Christ to the redemption of His true Church and the 144,000 elect Israelites. Under the Seventh Vial the evils of these two Babylons, Rome and her world church system in union with the 'Jews', will be revealed to Israel so he can distinguish the virtuous woman from the seductive harlot, and know that "all Israel is not Israel" (Ezekiel 43:2; Revelation 11:19; 19:1-7). When they "see the ark of God's testament in the heavenly temple" at their parousia, they will understand the mystery of the two Babylons.
After Brother Branham has revealed her mystery and judgment in the revelation of the six written Seals, another angel comes down from heaven to call the wise and foolish virgin out of Babylon (Matthew 25:6). This was his Elijah anointing, the fullness of the Spirit which introduced the fullness of the Word. The Elijah of this day is the Lord Jesus Christ speaking through a prophet, a heaven-born Eagle, not a seminary-trained fowl scratching his food in the filth of an earth-bound denominational chicken yard.
"This messenger of Malachi 4 and Revelation 10:7 is going to do two things. One: According to Malachi 4 he will turn the hearts of the children to the fathers. Two: He will reveal the mysteries of the seven thunders in Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals. It will be these Divinely revealed `mystery-truths' that literally turn the hearts of the children to their Pentecostal fathers" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, 327:1).
The Word made flesh is the Light of the Age when you see It. God veiled Himself behind the flesh of this prophet, a sinner saved by grace, revealing Jesus Christ the same (Luke 17:28-30). His Message is the "Shout" of the rapture which Lightens the Earth with God's glory today and the "Voice of the Archangel" from heaven echoes or confirms his Message to the heart of the Bride (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:27-28; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 14:8-12; 18:1-4). So the Spirit and the Prophet and the Bride will be saying the same thing for the Message of this angel gathers the Bride into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Ephesians 4:13; Revelation 22:17-19).
Although Rome claims to be the fairest among women, the virgin Bride of Christ, she is a deep ditch and a narrow pit whose gates are the gates of hell, a prison-house of demons, a sort of hell on earth (Proverbs 23:27-28; Matthew 15:14; 16:18). She and her daughters have become a permanent abode of souls imprisoned by superstitious myths and dogma, fallen angels, souls who are dead while they live (Ezekiel 8:10).
After His crucifixion, Jesus went to the place of the departed and preached to souls that were in prison and beyond repentance. Since the second crucifixion of the Word the testimony of Christ's Bride is mainly to souls imprisoned by Roman and (so-called) Protestant dogma who refuse to walk in the glorious Light shone throughout the world by this angel. Those who reject his Message will receive Rome's plagues under the Seventh Vial.
The cause of Rome's destruction is the fanatical rage for her idolatries and deifications of all sorts among the nations she has intoxicated by her own traditions instead of weaning them on the milk then feeding them strong meat of the Word. Jesus calls this substitution of man-made creed "Balaamism", and her establishment of a hierarchy between men and God "nicolaitanism". Even the kings of the Earth have deified her and allowed themselves to be deified by her (Revelation 18:3).
"Now watch this doctrine of Balaam most carefully. Notice above all, that it is the deliberate maneuver of a corrupt clergy to bind the people to them, by leading the people deliberately into the sin of unbelief. The Nicolaitane doctrine was the corruption of the clergy as they sought political power amongst themselves, while Balaamism is the subjection of the people to their system of creed and worship in order to hold them. Now watch this carefully. What was it that bound the people to the nominal church and thereby destroyed them? It was the creeds and dogmas formed into church tenets. It was the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church. They were not given the true food, the Word. They were given the food that came from idol worship, Babylonian paganism wrapped up in Christian terminology. And that very same spirit and doctrine is right amongst all Protestants and it is called DENOMINATION. Nicolaitanism is organization, humanizing the leadership of the church, and thereby deposing the Spirit. Balaamism is denominationalism which takes the church manual instead of the Bible. And right to this hour, many of God's people are caught in the snare of denominationalism and God is crying to them, "Come out of her My people, lest ye be partakers of her sins and receive of her plagues." You see they are ignorant. But if the rapture should take place at this moment, ignorance would be no court of appeal from the judgment of God for being in the wrong ranks" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages 371:2).
Babylon has offended against the nations whom she has intoxicated with the drunken rage of fanaticism, and seduced their kings (or Black Nobility) to world-deification. Men like Emperor Constantine who organized the Roman Catholic church in AD325, and the Khazar, Bulan, who converted his kingdom to Judaism overnight in AD740, acted with political mindedness because they were conscious only of worldly glory. And a third class, the hofjuden, called in Scripture traffickers or speculators, merchants or bankers, bent on mammon -- "the great men of the earth" -- made rich through the mighty operation of Rome's central luxury whilst the poor became poorer. In assuming world-monarchy Rome will reach an accommodation with these 'Jews' to refinance the US dollar and restore trade (Daniel 9:27).
Whereas she should be encouraging brotherly kindness among Hebrew and Gentile, bond and free, male and female, Rome's deification of self and this hierarchy of earthly powers culminated in false pomp and a love of magnificence in external show whereby normal distinctions of rich and poor have been perverted to socio-econonic extremes. This will be Rome's undoing when she breaks her agreement with the Black Nobility and hofjuden in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, precipitating her destruction.
In Revelation 18:4-20 we hear "the Voice of the Archangel", that "still small Voice" that spoke with Elijah, speaking from the judgment seat in the heavenly temple (Revelation 16:17), ratifying the judgment of the "Shout" and inspiring the Bride for the third exodus out of Rome and her once Protestant daughters into Him (I Kings 19:12; Matthew 25:6; Ephesians 1:10-11; II Thessalonians 2:1).
God is a separator. His saints have always been a separated people, as it was in the days of Noah, who separated himself from the condemned antediluvian world, and as it was in the days of Lot who departed Sodom. And as Israel departed Egypt and the primitive Christians fled condemned Jerusalem, Christ's Bride is separating herself from man-made creed and tradition of the condemned churches unto Him (Hebrews 13:13; I Corinthians 6:15-20; II Corinthians 6:14-18).
The "Shout" of the end-time Message is the certainty of THUS SAITH THE LORD calling both wise and foolish virgin out of the confusion of Babylon. Not confusion of tongues, confusion of religion. Pentecostals, Methodists and Catholics, all claiming to speak for God Who says, "Let MY Word be true and every man a liar". Those who remain in Babylon imply sanction of her sins. By their very presence they become accomplices in her guilt and will receive of her plagues (Revelation 19:20-21).
Leviticus 5:1 and Joshua 7 illustrate how one may become guilty by association with the sins of others. When Achan took spoil of a golden wedge, some silver and a Babylonian garment which were dedicated to destruction for the glory of God or (Heb.) "cherem", Israel's army was routed and thirty-six innocent men lost their lives. Through Achan's unbelief the cherem, ban or anathema came upon his own head when God told Israel to stone Achan, his sons and daughters and their livestock, and to burn them with their possessions (Ezekiel 18:20; James 4:17). God declared the Amalekites and all of their property "cherem", so when Saul spared the life of Agag their king, and also took the best of his livestock, God took the kingdom from Saul (I Samuel 15).
God is not a man that He should lie, nor will He change His mind. He anathematized Rome and her (once) Protestant daughters, and has warned us to depart from them today. This call shows there are as yet unregenerated elect in every denomination, including Rome. So it is not the individuals but the system He has cursed. However "the mere association of kindhearted people with the true believer might well bring death in return for their kindness" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, 116:1). Those who ignore His Voice are guilty by association and will receive of her plagues.
Since the Seven Seals are revealed, there is no longer any delay for mediation (Revelation 10:6), and no excuse for ignorance among those who have heard the "Shout", so that all not born of this end-time Message will be cast into the Tribulation (Malachi 4:6; Acts 3:23; Revelation 22:17-19). The judgment of God must soon be executed. The sins of the City don't simply "cry" unto heaven like those of Sodom (Genesis 18:20-21), so great is their accumulation they have been built up to heaven like the Tower of Babel (Jeremiah 51:9; Revelation 18:5, 24). God has remembered her iniquities from Nimrod to the popes, so her punishment is not merely for what she has done, but for what she is.
Revelation 18:6-8 is addressed to the ten horns who are God's instrument for executing His judgment upon the harlot in behalf of those to whom she has presented the cup of her abominable dogma. Here is a double retribution so the cup of God's wrath, or Seventh Vial is to be filled double for Rome and all associated with her sins. The torments she has inflicted upon men, her self-glorification and arrogant ostentation are to be punished with a double measure of the torment and sorrow she has inflicted upon others on the grounds of her obduracy even as the seventh angel is indicting her, for "she says in her heart, . ." so unforebodingly secure is she in face of the signs of the times. Little does she realize that the Word veiled behind his mortal flesh is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. When she declares, "I am enthroned as a queen, rich and in need of nothing" she doesn't know that spiritually, she is miserable and wretched, and poor, and blind, and naked (Isaiah 47:7).
Although she says, "I shall not seclude myself like a forsaken woman" awaiting the return of my (supposed-to-be) Husband" (Isaiah 47:8-9), she is neither a bride nor is she a wife but a polyandria. "Sorrow I shall not see" -- through barrenness or loss of children, by the departure of her illegitimate daughter churches (Isaiah 47:8- 10).
As Israel will be born in one day, shortly thereafter the City's fourfold plagues: death, sorrow, hunger and fire, will come in one great man-made catastrophe, one day, for the whole omnipotence of God is against her (Revelation 18:8; 19:20-21).
In Revelation 18:9-10, the three classes of people associated with her guilt are denounced in antithesis to the people of God who took heed and came out of her -- some to be translated, some to be martyred, others just fellow-travelers with family and friends but unbelievers like those who remain within the city. Although they are distant spectators of her destruction, lamenting in self-interest for their own loss, they are guilty with her. The description shows that far and wide, men of the world have lived and sinned with Great Babylon although they will be faithless to her in her hour of need. The conflagration that destroys Great Babylon (and the U.S.A.) lightens Earth naturally as the mighty Angel illumines it Spiritually with his revelation. "They shall see the smoke of her burning, standing far off for the fear of her nuclear torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for instantaneously is your judgment come" (Revelation 18:9-10; 19:3).
The kings are well aware of Mystery Babylon's guilt for they speak of her judgment but having come to a place of no more repentance, the Gentile dispensation being over, they feel no sorrow for their alliances with her in fornication. Having worked into the hands of the Roman hierarchy, they have been the bearers of a reciprocal deification.
What is not generally known nowadays is that the Habsburgs hold hereditary right to Emperorship of the Holy Roman Empire. Through the Merovingian bloodline of Edomite 'Jews' they falsely assert descent through Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene to king David, and legally on strength of an ancient agreement with Rome whose Trinitarian religion was established through Merovingian arms.
The merchants or bankers lament for their own loss because no one will buy their luxuries any more. Since the City is destroyed and Rome's world hegemony has been usurped by Judaeo-Communism there will be no future call for private banking to fund luxury goods or to speculate.
Prior to her destruction, Rome is incomparable, for she will gain absolute control of all the commerce of the Earth. Since she will be the center and controller of one world government, all things will result from and minister to her wealth and power. And once she breaks her agreement with the 'Jews' and forces her religion upon all, no man can buy or sell apart from her (Revelation 18:9-17).
Whilst worldly men cast dust upon their heads, the heavenly voice replies to their unworthy lamentations with a cry of exultation to all who through the ages have condemned Babylon without heaven appearing to hear, "Rejoice now that your prophecies and indictments are ratified by the judgment of God" (Revelation 18:20). At this time the Bride of all ages has been at the Wedding Supper in heaven for three and a half years.
II Thessalonians 1:6-10, "It is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; and to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the Presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power; when He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day." (See Newsletter #163).
God has vindicated the Words of His holy apostles and prophets by executing their sentence of judgment upon Rome. The spirit that rules Babylon today has ruled this world since it deceived Eve, causing her seduction by the Serpent. It has ruled all four Gentile world kingdoms since Nimrod built his Tower and rules today through the false church and also through the Babylonian Talmud of the self-styled 'Jews' who have slain hundreds of millions in war, famine, revolution, manipulation of national economies, and lies in their control and manipulation of historic truth and the consciousness of Israelite and Gentile alike. "And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth" (Revelation 18:24).
Mystery Babylon in her present incarnation, the Roman Catholic church empire, has its capital destroyed in "one hour" by an atom bomb. Almost four years beforehand, Los Angeles, the propaganda capital of the other Babylon, is destroyed "with violence" and "thrown down" beneath the Pacific by the hand of God in the greatest earthquake since the creation of man (Revelation 16:18; 18:21-23). The violent casting of the millstone into the sea, the great whirlpool occasioned by it, and the precipitate sinking of the stone symbolize the imminent sinking of Los Angeles. The "sea" denotes the life of the heathen world of nations over which the Goyim self-styled 'Jew' has despotic designs as the driven upper millstone commands and grinds upon the nether stone (Daniel 7:2). Their offense is spiritual domination over Israel or "nicolaitanism which Jesus hates" and domination of the Gentile conscience as expressed in Matthew 18:6. As in Revelation 12, Earth opens her mouth to devour the propaganda capital of the non-Semitic anti-Semitic self-styled 'Jews' by a mode of capital punishment common among the Gentiles (in John's day), and as a protection for true Israel.
The most flagrant offense of the deceptive 'Jewish' Babylon has been against "the little ones" for she has deceived all nations by the sorceries of Hollywood illusions. Revelation 22:15, "Outside Christ are dogs -- men of impure minds, sorcerers, and male prostitutes, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves and makes a lie" -- precisely the low characters Hollywood promotes to pervert the nations through theater, screen, and into the castle of men's homes via "hellevision". Brother Branham said, "Christians don't have a television set in the house".
These "little ones" whom these self-styled 'Jews' have offended include every Hebrew who has encountered their filthy low-down music, film, sub-sewer culture and untruthful history, and every Israelite descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who has been deceived by their rabbis and Talmudic blasphemies against Messiah. But also every Gentile influenced by their filthy illusions. Well-deserved is the "millstone" or "cherem" that will be around their neck. The stone the angel cast into the sea was symbolic of the judgment to come upon this other Babylon. It is actually the stumbling stone of the Message and is the last call to repentance and salvation for these gentile self-styled 'Jews'.
His action superinduces a great agitation and is explained by what happened in March, 1964 when Brother Branham was hunting with friends on Sunset mountain in the Coronado Forest of Arizona. They were in the camp one morning when the Lord told him: "Take up this rock; throw it up in the air, and say, 'THUS SAITH THE LORD. You will see it right away'." And I picked up the rock up on top of the mountain, threw it up in the air, . . . Course, coming down, it started a whirlwind (See?), the suction of it."
"You have to do something to cause something to follow it. Jesus took a piece of bread and broke it, then multiplied from that piece of bread. He took water, poured it into a pitcher. Elijah took salt, put it in a cruse; cut down a stick, threw it on the water. It's something to symbolize. And picking up this rock and throwing it into the air, and coming down started the whirlwind" (William Branham, Unveiling of God, 7:36-37).
"It was a judgment sign. In a few days a great earthquake's going to strike on the west. And it won't stop. California, Los Angeles will sink. It's going down. It'll slide right into the ocean. And two days after that, the Alaskan earthquake shook Alaska."
"And then, the last meeting I had in California, while speaking, and didn't know nothing happened till I got on the street, It told California, said, "Capernaum, Capernaum, the city that's called by the name of the angels (that's Los Angeles), you've exalted yourself into heaven, but you'll be brought down into hell. For if the mighty works had been done in Sodom that's been done in you, it would've been standing till this day" (William Branham, Works is Faith Expressed, 8:60-61).
Revelation 12:1-18:24 is in parenthesis like the soliloquy of a Shakespearean play where we learn the thoughts of a character, or a narrator explains events leading to the next scene, which is Revelation 19. The parenthesis under the Seventh Trumpet and Third Woe (Revelation 11:14-19) reviews the history of the woman's Seed expressed in Jesus Christ and His Spiritual offspring: the Bride of All Ages and the 144,000 elect Israelites (Revelation 12). Next we see the mystery of how the Roman Empire was transformed into a false church empire and its spiritual offspring: her (once) Protestant daughter churches and the United States (read Rulers of Evil by Tupper Saussy) who will reproduce the inquisitions during the tribulation, and force Trinitarian worship which is the mark of the beast. We see the martyred 144,000, the Fifth Seal Israelites, and those who believed the Messages of the last three angels to the Church but without the Spirit and are martyred for refusing the mark of the beast (Revelation 13-14). Finally, Revelation 15-18 describe the Seven Vials poured out upon nominal Christians to separate the "saved" from the false church, the earthquake that sinks Los Angeles marking the end of the Gentile dispensation, and the burning of Rome shortly after the 144,000 are born-again when she will break her covenant with the 'Jews'.
In Revelation 19:1-3, the Old Testament saints, twenty-four elders and the Fifth Seal Jews praise God in the Hebrew "Hallelujah" for executing righteous judgment on the great whore and avenging the blood of his servants upon Babylon (Revelation 6:10; 18:24). This is the time of Israel's parousia. This is when their elect see the mystery of the two Babylons and separate themselves unto God and to His Christ. nl176.htm
