We greet you once again in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for joining us for fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
When studying these Newsletters please read the Scripture references in your own Bibles and also visit the links to make certain you are understanding what God is saying, rather than my ideas. Let the mind that was in Christ be in you. Make your calling and election sure because we are preparing for the flight test Moses called "a new wave offering" and Paul called "the manifestation of the Sons of God." There will be no 'repeats.' Without our 'wings' we'll be cast into the outer darkness of tribulation where there will be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth since we will have to surrender our life in order to retain our place on the Book of Life. Then following the general resurrection those who could not fly will have to appeal their case before the saints at the White Throne Judgment.
Remain vigilant. Prove all things personally in your own Bible. . . Your brother, Anthony
Planets Line-up for Rare Spectacular
Sydney, April 21, 2002 -- A once-in-a-lifetime spectacle will be taking shape in the night sky this weekend -- assuming the weather is clear.
From Saturday the five visible planets -- Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter -- will have swung into line with Earth as they orbit the sun. The planets will appear clustered into a small patch of the western sky as they dip towards the horizon.
A similar conjunction will not be seen again for almost 100 years. . . As April gives way to May the planets will become more tightly grouped. By May 4, Saturn, Mars and Venus will have begun the finale of the show by closing up to form a perfect triangle. They will start to move apart again about eight days later.

Clinton, US Officials Accused of War Crimes
Phoenix April 22, 2002 -- Bill Clinton and other top officials in his administration have been accused of war crimes against the Serbs, according to an article in today's Washington Times. No, the charge does not relate to the 1999 NATO bombing of Serbia. (God willing, that is yet to come). Nor was it levelled by a Serb or a Serbophile.
The accusation was made by a lawyer for a Croatian general who has been himself indicted for war crimes by the International War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague. And the general isn't taking it lying down. Full story: rense.com truthinmedia.org
Iran Urges China to Intervene in Palestinian Conflict
Teheran, April 20, 2002 -- President Mohammad Khatami urged his Chinese counterpart, Jiang Zemin, to intervene in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict Saturday and stop the crimes. . . . "China supports a multi-polar world, is critical of Israeli killings and believes peace in the Middle East will not be achieved without materialization of the rights of Palestinians, including withdrawal of Israeli troops from occupied territories".
In addition, both states have expressed concern about the rise of US influence in central Asia after Washington's successful intervention in the Afghanistan civil war last year.

Church of Nativity: Who's Who in Staged Siege?
April 21, 2002 -- Don't believe everything you read about the siege at the Church of the Nativity. Remember who owns the newspapers and where their sympathies lie.
Read the article that appeared in the April 20 edition of the Zionist flagship publication the Washington Post, entitled "A Sanctuary Under Siege." (Click Full story).
As you read, keep this adage in mind: 'For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.' Those who design wars (action) expect opposition (reaction). They plan to control both sides of the fight.
To do that, psychological warriors design media events to neutralize opposition. The psyops warriors design conflict dramas. Actors (undercover agents) are assigned to play parts on both sides, as antagonists and protagonists. The events are reported as 'news,' and public opinion is manipulated in favor of one side or the other. So it was in Waco; so it is with the Church of the Nativity. Full story: public-action.com
US and Israel are Axis of Evil
Riyadh (AP) April 21, 2002 -- A group of Saudi intellectuals and writers has condemned the United States and Israel and described them as the axis of evil in the world -- borrowing a phrase US President George Bush has used for Iran, Iraq and North Korea.
The 113 Saudis, some of them prominent writers for respected Saudi papers, said the American role in the Israeli military operation against the Palestinians was 'shameful' and said the 'Israeli massacres do not differ in shape or form from what the Nazis did.'
The writers called in a statement released Saturday on all Arab governments to sever diplomatic, political and economic ties with Israel and urged Arabs to boycott all American products. 'We consider the United States and the current American administration the nurturer of international terrorism with distinction and it, along with Israel, form the axis of terrorism and evil in the world,' said the statement.

Vatican Launches War against Israeli Crimes
April 15, 2002 -- The Vatican launched a semi-official warfare against Israel terming its re-occupation of Palestinian territories as genocide against the Palestinian people, due to which the international community must intervene.
This is, of course, an unprecedented accusation levelled by the Vatican to Israel whose Political significance prompts other Western parties to oppose Israeli policies.
In its official Gazette, the Vatican stressed that the genocide against the Palestinians has got nothing to do with allegations by Israel that its war is against terrorism.

On Jewish Hatred towards Christianity
Israel Shahak: Dishonouring Christian religious symbols is an old religious duty in Judaism. Spitting on the cross, an especially on the Crucifix, and spitting when a Jew passes a church, have been obligatory from around AD 200 for pious Jews. In the past, when the danger of anti-Semitic hostility was a real one, the pious Jews were commanded by their rabbis either to spit so that the reason for doing so would be unknown, or to spit onto their chests, not actually on the cross or openly before the church. The increasing strength of the Jewish state has caused these customs to become more open again but there should be no mistake: The spitting on the cross for converts from Christianity to Judaism, organized in Kibbutz Sa'ad and financed by the Israeli government is a an act of traditional Jewish piety.

Beginning of the End of Post-War Jewish Ascendancy?
Israel Shamir: 'Today's Jerusalem is an unhappy city, its non-Jewish majority dispossessed, uprooted, pushed into ghettos and controlled by the brutal Jewish Border Police. Today's Jerusalem has the most advanced torture facilities, and there, thousands of kidnapped Palestinians are subjected to electric shocks, beating and humiliation. Today's Jerusalem is a place where only Jews can move freely and enjoy the fruits of civilisation. Should it be a model for tomorrow's Paris? Mais non, the people of France had experienced the German Nazi conquest in 1940s, and did not want to try the Judeo-Nazi occupation'. Full story: israelshamir.net ihr.org
The Great Tribulation of the Sixth Seal -- Part II
Revelation 6:12-17, "I watched as Christ opened the Sixth Seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the Sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the Moon was blood-red; and the stars of heaven appeared to be falling to Earth as a fig tree casts her untimely figs, when she is shaken by mighty winds. And the starry heavens disappeared as though rolled up like a scroll and taken away; 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 physically strong men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; and said 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: for the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand justified in His Presence'?"
These men knew they had scorned the Word of God's mercy during Israel's blindness. Now that It was incarnate in two prophets as Satan was incarnate in the pope they knew that grace was no more, and like Esau they have come to a place of no more repentance, and that there was no hiding from the wrath of the Lamb (Isaiah 24:17-18).
The apparent rebellion of the powers of nature break up the whole fabric of civil government as disorder reigns supreme, for Satan is cast down to Earth with his demons to incarnate "that man of sin." This subversion of governing authority is of such magnitude that every class is affected and terrorised by it. The political and ecclesiastical world will go to pieces, and when thrones fall, anarchy reigns; when human society and civilization collapse with signs in heaven, the inhabiters of the earth will see in anticipation the approaching day of wrath (Isaiah 24; 34; Joel 2:30-32; Zephaniah 1; Haggai 2:6-7).
Isaiah 34:4-5, "All the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falls off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree. For My sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, upon the people of My curse, to judgment".
Matthew 24:29; II Peter 3:7, 10, 12; and Revelation 6:13-14 are founded upon this text in which God has laid the curse or cherem upon all nations and devoted them to slaughter for the honor of His holiness. Therefore Isaiah summons all nations, Israelite and Gentile, to hear this mighty matter for all are to be given up to slaughter and whole mountains shall flow with blood. Prominence is given to one nation, Idumea or Edom, which (along with Moab and Ammon) was the most detested by God and the Israelites (Deuteronomy 23:3-6; Isaiah 63:1-6; Ezekiel 35:5-15; Amos 1;11-12; Obadiah 10-21; Malachi 1:1-5).
Edom married into Judah under John Hyrcanus and their kindred stock assimilated further after AD740 when the kingdom of Khazaria converted to Talmudic Judaism overnight. Most "Jews" so-called are at best Gentiles and at worst Serpent's seed as evidenced by their enmity against Adam's race, and with no inheritance in this earth, their international proclivity (Genesis 3:15; 4:11-15).
Brother Branham said, "He's a money snatcher. I don't care how he gets it; he will get it. He will skin you alive to get it. You know that. He's a little shyster; that's all. Boy, don't deal with him. He will get you, boy. Yes, sir. Why? He's got to be that. That's the kind of a spirit that's dominating" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Seals, p. 426:6). And the spirit that is dominating is the worldly spirit Jacob had before his conversion; it is the spirit of the Talmud which is spiritual Serpent's seed, and the spirit of his associates who are physical Serpent's seed.
Only an infinitesimal number of "Jews" are Israelites descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. According to Israel's prophets, the remnant 144,000 are yet in Palestine, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and the Moslem nations which Esau/Edom is doing his utmost to destroy in order to slaughter Jacob/Israel and secure the stolen birthright (Genesis 27:39-42).
Once the Sixth Seal manifests, God's sword, having already become drunken with blood in heaven (Revelation 12:7-9), will descend to fulfil His purposes on Earth (Isaiah 34:2-3). And the judgment having begun in heaven will be continued on earth, starting with Edom, as that people above all has become the object of the Divine ban.
No cherubim announce the opening of the Sixth Seal; they will have completed their duty on Earth when the last member of the Bride is born-again under the Fourth Seal that ends concurrently with the Fifth. The Sixth is the judgment Seal. Isaiah foretold the Lord would reject Israel by a more extended captivity after the Egyptian bondage from which he was wonderfully redeemed. This second exile which had already commenced in his time under Tiglath-Pileser (II Kings 15:29), was as much only a faint beginning of exile as the return under Zerubbabel and Ezra was only a faint beginning of the redemption. The Roman Exile would be the completion of the second exile but since we Gentiles receive Messiah before Israel, God's promised calling-out the second time is only after the going-up of the Bride.
Isaiah 11:10-12, "In the day of the Lord there shall be a root of Jesse, Who shall be a banner of salvation for all people; to Him shall the Gentiles seek: and the place of His rest (His Bride) shall be glorious. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea. And He shall raise a signal among the nations to rally the Hebrews and assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth."
This signal will be directed toward Israelites dispersed in these nations, not to the Gentiles for, our day of redemption will have passed. (Brother Branham said many "Jews" will not escape from the United States). Israel is promised And when they had made an end of offering, the king and all that were present with him bowed themselves, and worshipped. "the sign of the Son of man in heaven" (Matthew 24:30; 26:64; Daniel 7:13; Revelation 14:14) after the sign of an earthquake that splits the mount of Olives and destroys the Dome of the Rock, followed by two prophets who are a further sign (Matthew 12:39).
The New Testament calls these prophets "two witnesses" because for three and a half years they reconfirm the prophetic vision of Daniel 9 and God's Covenant to Abraham's Seed once confirmed in the three and a half-year ministry of John the Baptist and Jesus Christ which ended the sixty-ninth week of Daniel's prophecy. These two witnesses are Hebrews anointed with the unction of the Spirit that empowered Elijah and Moses. Their ministry ends God's spiritual dealings with Israel, leaving a further three and a half years of great tribulation to purify Earth, the foolish virgin and other classes of the "saved" as well as the 144,000 in the consummation of all things.
Revelation 11:4-6, "These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the Earth (Zechariah 4). And if any man will hurt them, Fire proceeds out of their mouth, and devours their enemies (who will be killed by the sword of God's spoken Word). They have power to shut heaven that no rain falls during the three and a half years of their prophecy (like Elijah): and to turn rivers and oceans to blood, and to smite Earth with all manner of plagues, as often as they wish (like Moses)."
The God of Israel was exhibited through Moses at will calling plagues upon Egypt, and in withdrawing at once and completely the well-known Egyptian periodical scourges in answer to intercession. This proved Jehovah more effectually to be the God of Egypt as much as of Israel than could have been proven by inflicting some new and strange visitation.
All of these plagues were upon Egypt's idols. "Against all the gods of Egypt will I execute judgment" (Exodus 12:12; Numbers 33:4). The Divine aim was to awaken Israel's expectations and to vindicate His Lordship, not merely over the enslaved Hebrews but over Egypt and its king, who was the representative of the heathen world powers with whom God's controversy is, "to the end that you may know that I am the Lord in the midst of the Earth" (Exodus 8:22).
I should expect Israel's two prophets will plague Rome and her "Jewish" NWO partners by intensifying and controlling at will natural phenomena bringing wrath on God's enemies and their false gods and mercy to His people to encourage them in the faith.
Daniel 12:1-3 belong to and follow Daniel 11:45 and Revelation 11 for it is in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, when their ministry is fulfilled, that Rome breaks her covenant. She will kill those prophets, force the mark of the beast and "make war with the remnant of the woman's seed," the 144,000 elect Israelites who have been born-again in one day (Revelation 12:17).
Isaiah 66:7-8, "In one day, suddenly, the nation of Israel shall be born-again even before the birth pains of (Roman martyrdom). In a moment, just as his anguish (over the murder of the two witnesses and his mourning of atonement for rejecting Messiah for 2,000 years -- Zechariah 12-13) starts, the baby nation is born".
Now Messiah can "stand up" or commence His reign. His first act is to console His elect servants with the assurance that although they will all be martyred by Rome, they are sealed to the day of their redemption and will have part in the first resurrection, the Bride having fulfilled her part three and a half years previously.
What about Michael? His name means "Who is like God" and He is the Archangel who will cast Satan down to earth at the end of the age, take his power, and fight for the elect of Israel (Daniel 12:1; Revelation 12:7). By implication Michael was "the Captain of the host of the Lord" Who met with Joshua (Joshua 5:14). Michael is Christ (Jude 9), the Angel of the Covenant, the one Holy Spirit manifesting different aspects of Himself.
Through the ministry of the two witnesses 144,000 Israelites will cross from the Law to grace in a new birth, adding to their revelation of Moses the praises of Jesus Christ, their Passover Lamb (Revelation 14:3; 15:3).
Daniel 12:1, "At this time Christ, the great Prince Who fights for Israel, shall commence His rule; (He could not rule until His servant nation, the 144,000, recognized Him as their King): then shall come a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation until that time (the Great Tribulation, Matthew 24:21). Then ALL Israel shall be delivered, (all 144,000) found written in the Lamb's Book of Life" (Romans 11:26). This is the time of Zechariah 14:6-9, the time of Israel's birth by revelation.
This is Christ's 'parousia' to Israel's elect. By faith they recognise their warrior King, the Son of David, with the saints of all ages clothed in the righteousness of His Word, coming to destroy the enemy. Of course Jesus and the glorified saints are not physically coming at this time. This signifies Israel's revelation of the vindicated Word. They see that the fullness of the Word made manifest in Jesus Christ and reproduced in His redeemed Bride will also be manifest their own redemption and the overthrow of the enemy, because It is written, "God's Word will not return to Him void but will accomplish that which was purposed".
The 144,000 will exercise the same resurrection faith in their martyrdom as changed and resurrected Jesus (Psalms 16:10; John 2:19), the Old Testament saints and the Church, and translated the living Bride. Each individual will possess the personal revelation that he or she is among those described in Revelation 14:1-5 and that this faith will accomplish what is written (Romans 8:11). After they lay down their lives in martyrdom for the faith of Jesus Christ (Luke 9:24; Revelation 6:11; 14:12-15:4) they will be accounted in the first resurrection and participate in Millennium blessings (Revelation 14:5).
On his way to the Promised Land, Israel had to cross the land of his illegitimate cousin, Moab. But when Moab saw his redeemed cousin followed by miracles and invincible in battle, led by a prophet under no denominational headquarters, organization or hierarchy, he felt intimidated and sought a hireling prophet to curse Israel. Balaam united Israel and Moab through fornication, as Rome's false prophet married Protestantism into his Jezebel system by spiritual fornication. God never forgave Moab for this sin. Neither will he forgive Judeo-Catholicism.
Do you see how mammon is fulfilling Scripture today, controlling all sides of the contrived conflicts in occupied Palestine and other nations, working under a different name and in a different occupation behind the 'fronts' of Israel, the PLO, United States, Britain, the EU, Islam, the Vatican, China and Russia, Judaism, and so-on? Each is a pawn in their game, for the leaders are their well-bought pawns. The purpose of the the hidden hand of the Money-Power, their master, is world hegemony with the destruction of all nations, and all religions but the pure Luciferian worship.
That incredibly wicked coward, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, like the immeasurably more patrician "Jew" before him, Adolf Hitler, is a tool in the hand of his unknown "Jewish" masters. The "Jew" Karl Marx regarded such men 'useful idiots.' Sharon is leading Israel to destruction and subjugation as Hitler unintentionally led Germany to its nadir.
The world will soon despise Israel and the non-Semitic self-styled "Jew," but without the enmity they have exhibited against blood Israelites and Adam's race (Genesis 3:15). After the earthquake proclaims the day of the Lord, Israel will be made a colony of the United Nations' NWO under Vatican Rome: God will harden the heart of all nations which He shall gather against Jerusalem in the same way and with the same result as when He aroused Pharaoh to pursue Israel (Exodus 14:4). "For the day of the LORD of hosts will be against every one that is proud and haughty, and bring them to the dust" (Isaiah 2:12).
Jerusalem shall be occupied, the houses rifled, the loot divided, and THEIR women raped, returning "eye for eye, tooth for tooth, and life for life" as the bastard-born non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled "Jewish" boy-soldiers self-righteously boast while destroying the property and lives of Palestinians who, unlike themselves are Semitic. Israel's prophets: Moses in Exodus 21 and Deuteronomy 28; Isaiah 13:16; 34:1-8; 63:1-6; Zechariah 14:1-2, and Jesus in Revelation 14, promised this! Our Gentile prophet, William Branham, said this same fate will concurrently befall that "Jewish" colony of the City of London -- USrael -- the United States of America.
God deals with Israel as one nation and not as individuals. The self-styled Edomite "Jews" have planned three World Wars and three major revolutions to achieve world hegemony. These are an accursed people but "ALL things work together for good to them that love God, who are the called and elected according to His purpose." And God has used these World Wars to force Israel back into the Homeland so that He can finish prophecy. These "Jews" have one more World War planned. We are at the end of the fourth generation or Seal from Calvary; "the iniquity of the Amorites" should be full in about one year by which time Amalek will be hated of all nations. As things stand in Israel today, only "Jews" have a 'right of return' to a land in which their forefathers have no history. This war will force a way whereby the remnant of the 144,000 will be permitted to return to their Homeland.
Following this brief World War III, Jerusalem will be divided with the Old City becoming Vatican Rome's NWO Capitol, however free access will not be restricted so that 144,000 true blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will initially be free to gather from the Gentile nations, called out from Muslim and pseudo-Christian cults adopted by their ancestors as their prophets, Isaiah 11:11-12; 27:13 and Zechariah 10:10-12, foretold. Liberties they would not receive in the Edomite-controlled sector of Israel and Jerusalem. "For Moses said, the Lord has sworn that He will have war with Amalek from generation to generation" (Exodus 17:16). Amalek's third major revolution is called Armageddon.
Numbers 24:19-20, "Out of Jacob shall come Messiah Who shall have dominion, and shall destroy him that remains of the city. . . Amalek was the foremost of the neighboring nations; but his latter end shall be that he perish for ever".
Israel's two prophets are going to call 144,000 elect Israelites out from Judaism, Islam, and Romanism (Isaiah 28:14-29; Daniel 9:24-27; Revelation 7:4-8). However while God is delivering this remnant of Israel for the second time they will be confronted by a NWO dominated by the Moab of illegitimate Protestantism united with Roman Catholicism and Judaism jealous of their redeemed brother who has no headquarters, temple or cathedral, no hierarchy, and who scorn their dogma and traditions of men with the miracles of two prophets dressed in sackcloth.
Romanism and Judaism are a highway that forks to the right and to the left but beyond the Plain of Ease they merge in the Abyss at the foot of Lucre Hill. God will smite both with manifold plagues as He smote Egypt. "Then I saw the beast and the kings of the Earth and their armies gathered together to make war against Christ and against His army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet who did miracles before him with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of Fire burning with brimstone. And the entire army was slain with the sword in the mouth of He Who rode the white horse, and all the fowls were filled with their flesh." nl222.htm
