America's Future: Inflate or Repudiate
Richard Russell, a veteran market analyst old enough to remember the Great Depression, thinks that the economic outlook for the United States is now so frightening that most people are simply unwilling to face it. As he puts it ("Escape and Fantasy," Dow Theory Letters, July 29, 2003):
So what are people escaping from? I believe that consciously or unconsciously, they're escaping from our future. And what is our future? I'll say it once moreour future is "INFLATE OR DIE."
Whatyou don't understand what that means? Then I'll rephrase it. Our future is "INFLATE OR REPUDIATE" . . . How on earth is a $10 trillion economy going to service what's coming up in the way of $38 trillion in debt [including unfunded liabilities]?
There are two choices. Repudiate a good chunk of this debt or at least cut it back drastically. Or finance the debt via the printing presses. Which one do you think the US government is going to choose? Look, if we're running the printing presses full speed now, and the big expenses haven't even hit yet, what do you think our leaders are going to do when the "debt hits the fan?" You guessed it; they're going to inflate at a level that has never been seen before. . .
The wavelike movement affecting the economic system, the recurrence of periods of boom which are followed by periods of depression, is the unavoidable outcome of the attempts, repeated again and again, to lower the gross market rate of interest by means of credit expansion. There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.
George III of America is attempting a similar feat by trying to finance the world's newest empire on the back of an unlimited paper dollar that is a pale shadow of the Spanish milled dollar from which both it and its Canadian counterpart sprang.

Comment: The US dollar will crash when Los Angeles sinks at the close of the Gentile dispensation whereupon it will be refinanced by the Vatican. Then the United States will continue to inflate her currency 'til just past the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week when debts to "Jewish" banksters will repudiated. In retaliation the Edomite "Jew" will show his colors by changing sides, and Judaeo-Communism will blast Rome and the United States off the face of the earth, invoking Armageddon. It's in the Book! (Revelation 17:12-18).

How to destroy America
October 31, 2003 Last week, I attended an immigration-overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of America's finest minds and leaders. Writers, speakers, CEO's, representatives from Congress such as Tom Tancredo, as well as former governors graced the podium. Bonnie Eggle, mother of the national parks ranger Chris Eggle, slain by Mexican drug runners last year on our unguarded southern border, gave a compelling speech that left not one dry eye in the place. Peter Gadiel, father of Jamie Gadiel, spoke powerfully on how the World Trade Center took his son and how nothing has been done since to stop the flow of illegal immigration into the United States. Even with the facade of Tom Ridge's Homeland Security, 800,000 illegal aliens continue walking, crawling or tunneling across the Mexican border annually. Their accelerating numbers are undermining America's ability to function.
During the conference, speaker after speaker astounded the audience with facts on how fast the present Administration and Congress continue dismantling the American Dream for average citizens. Mr. Rob Sanchez of Arizona showed how H1 B and L 1 visas have ripped one million high tech jobs out of American worker's hands. Another speaker told a packed audience how 'offshoring' and 'outsourcing,' fully supported by the president and Congress have cost over three million American jobs in the past six years. His prediction was even more depressing: "In excess of three million more jobs will be 'outsourced' within four years. Those American jobs are headed to Mexico, India, China, Pakistan and Brazil" . . .
Former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America . . .
He said, "If you believe that America is too smug, to self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall, and that, "An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide."
"Here is how they do it," Lamm said. "Turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country. History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar Seymour Lipset put it this way, "The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension and tragedy. Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, Lebanonall face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons and Corsicans."
Lamm went on, "Invent 'multiculturalism' and encourage immigrants to maintain their own culture. I would make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences. I would make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds."
"We could make the United States an 'Hispanic Quebec' without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: "The apparent success of our own multi-ethnic and multi-cultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentrically and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together."
Lamm said, "I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural sub-groups living in America reinforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities."
"Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school."
"My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of 'Victimology'. I would get all minorities to think their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population."
"My sixth plan for America's downfall would include dual citizenship and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each otherthat is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks: "The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic Games. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet, all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factorslocal patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of the 'unum,' we can balkanize America as surely as Kosovo."
"Next to last, I would place all subjects off limitsmake it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of 'diversity'. I would find a word similar to 'heretic'that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking in the 16th century. Words like 'racist' or 'xenophobe' halt discussion and debate."
"Having made America a bilingual-bicultural country, having established multiculturalism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of 'Victimology,' I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: "That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant sympatric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them."
In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. The profound silence allowed me to hear my heart beating. Finally, he said, "Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis's book Mexifornia. His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don't read that book."
There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Every discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate 'diversity.' American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as greedy corporations create a Third World in Americatake note of California and other statesto date, 10 million illegal aliens and growing, fast.
It reminded me of George Orwell's book, 1984. In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: "War is peace," "Freedom is slavery," and "Ignorance is strength." I sat there as one of the most patriotic Americans I know, Governor Lamm, walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy, is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don't get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially the American Dream.

Comment: Read The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and The Illuminati and the Council on Foreign Relations. Miscegenation, euphemistically called "multiculturalism" was the original sin and is absolutely accursed of God (Genesis 1:11; 3:15; 6:1-4).

Comment: Apparently on account of publicity given to this poll the Israeli government has silenced Arutz Sheva, the hugely popular voice of the religious community.
Arrested Oil Tycoon passed Shares to Banker Rothschild
London (Agence France-Presse) November 11, 2003 Control of Mikhail Khodorkovsky's shares in the Russian oil giant Yukos have passed to renowned banker Jacob Rothschild, under a deal they concluded prior to Mr. Khodorkovsky's arrest, the Sunday Times reported.
Voting rights to the shares passed to Mr. Rothschild, 67, under a "previously unknown arrangement" designed to take effect in the event that Mr. Khodorkovsky could no longer "act as a beneficiary" of the shares, it said.
Mr. Khodorkovsky, 40, whom Russian authorities arrested at gunpoint and jailed pending further investigation last week, was said by the Sunday Times to have made the arrangement with Mr. Rothschild when he realized he was facing arrest.
Mr. Rothschild now controls the voting rights on a stake in Yukos worth almost $13.5 billion, the newspaper said in a dispatch from Moscow. Full story: washingtontimes.com

Questions in Knesset on Citizenship for Yukos Executive
November 4, 2003 Knesset Immigration, Absorption and the Diaspora Committee chairperson MK Colette Avital (Labor-Meimad) raised a question today in Knesset to Minister of Internal Affairs Avraham Poraz and Minister of Immigrant Absorption Tzipi Livni, after senior Yukos executive Leonid Nevzlin was granted Israeli citizenship.
"Globes" revealed that Nevzlin fled to Israel after the arrest of Yukos' controlling shareholder Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who apparently transferred control of Yukos to Nevzlin and resigned as Yukos CEO last night.
Avital claimed that Nevzlin was granted citizenship in an expedited and extraordinary procedure and she asked whether there was any connection to "Nevzlin's friendship with Israeli government officials." She also asked, "Whether the state plans to grant asylum to tycoons suspected of criminal acts?"
Informed sources confirmed to "Globes" today that several top Yukos executives were residing in a hotel in central Israel. . . it was possible that they were registered under assumed names in order to cover their tracks, but they were unquestionably in Israel. "They could easily hold a board meeting here," said the sources. Full story: globes.co.il
Israel destroys US-built Wells
November 5, 2003 The US has reportedly complained after the Israeli army destroyed wells built for civilians in Gaza by an American government aid agency. Huge areas have been demolished by the Israelis in the Gaza Strip in recent weeks, including more than 150 homes.
The wells had just been dug by the United States Agency for International Development (USAid). A few months ago the agency announced a US$20m project to rebuild infrastructure including roads, electricity supply lines and sewers in the occupied territories. The agency was reporting good progress. But its workers were dismayed when they turned up to finish the wells and found that their work had been destroyed . . .
The Israeli army's 'blunder'?? came after the US State Department said that it would ask Congress to approve US$2.2bn of military aid for Israel in 2005, US$60m more than the allocation for 2004. Full story: news.independent.co.uk
Germany fires Top General
The German defence minister, Peter Struck, announced that the commander, Brigadier General Reinhard Gunzel, had been relieved of his duties.
Gen. Gunzel, the head of the country's prestigious special forces unit, the Kommando Spezialkrafte, was apparently fired after writing a letter of support to a backbench MP Martin Hohmann. In a recent speech Mr. Hohmann described Jews as a "nation of perpetrators," and said it was unfair to single out Germans for their role in the Holocaust given that Jews also had a "dark side".

Comment: Truth has become anti-Semitic. . . Jews openly bragged about their Russian revolution and its aftereffects. At the time, they gloated. They were the financiersfrom Warburg to Jacob Schiff . . . They were the revolutionariesfrom Apfelbaum, to Zinoviev, to Molotov, to Trotsky (Bronstein), to Lenin (Ulyanov), etc. They were the bloodthirsty horde in the NKVD which later became the KGB, led by Kaganovich, who were responsible for liquidating 40 to 60 million innocent Russians.
Now Jews say, "Who, us? . . . Even though anti-Semitism became a crime punishable by death after the Russian revolution, and possession of The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion a capital offense. . . Even though churches were burned while synagogues were left standing, and priests were murdered or forced to sweep streets, while rabbis were put on a pedestal, Jews now say they were persecuted (firstname.lastname@example.org).
US Attack on Syria Coming Soon?
The following unconfirmed report was sent from the Peacewatchers at USAF's Fairford and Welford bases in the UK:
Since Saturday, people in the Highlands of Scotland have been witnessing large movements of US warplanes. Experienced observers say the numbers are reminiscent of those that preceded the bombing of Iraq in 1998 and military strikes on Libya in the 1980's as well as the first Gulf War.
At the weekend warplanes were flying over at a rate of roughly one every 15 minutes. As well as watching from the ground plane spotters have also been able to overhear pilots talking by listening to their radio frequencies.
At this rate some 288 warplanes would have passed over Scotland in three days.
It is thought that the planes have flown on a route from the US over the North Pole to bases in Europe and the Mediterranean. The size and scale of the movement suggests that the US may be preparing to strike at a country in the Middle East in the next week to ten days. . . [on] the pretext of "foreign" terrorist attacks on US personnel in Iraq to attack Iran or Syria.
Putin hopes to ease Catholic-Orthodox Tensions
Rome (CWNews.com) November 4, 2003 On the eve of a visit with Pope John Paul II, Russian President Vladimir Putin has indicated that he hopes to promote reconciliation between the Vatican and the Russian Orthodox Church. . . he is not simply coming to deliver an invitation for the Pope to visit Russia. Rather, he said that he hoped to "take all the necessary steps to promote unity among different Christian confessions".
"Christianity is at the base of the European culture and identity," Putin told the Italian daily Corriere della Sera. That statement neatly matched the point Pope John Paul, and many other Vatican officials, have repeatedly raised in discussions about the framing of the new European constitution.
. . . President Putin went beyond considerations about the European constitution, to speak broadly about the need for Christian unity. "There are divisions between the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church today," he observed, "just as there are divisions between the Catholic Church and the Anglican Church." He insisted: "All these differences ought to be reconciled". Full story: ewtn.com
The Second Seal
Revelation 6:3-4, "When the Lamb opened the Second Seal, I heard the second living creature say, "Come." And there came forth another horse that was red: and to him that sat thereon it was given to take peace from the earth, and that they shall kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword".
When the living creature bid him "Come," all John saw was a symbol. He described it for the saints that they may be watchful until the end of Laodicea when the Seals would be opened and their mystery revealed to us "in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel," William Branham.
Self-Interest is the favorite horse in every race, and Satan is the rider of all four horses. Their different colors signify changes in Satan's strategy as he incarnates himself into his universal church. His white horse impersonated the Coming of Christ in righteousness to judge and make war. His bow had no arrows, signifying the psyop called "the deeds of the Nicolaitanes" which have no foundation in the Word of God. At the First Nicaea Council these "deeds" became enshrined in law as "the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes" and the Roman Catholic church was organized. Next the antichrist spirit was made pope; he was given a triple crown and became false prophet to the "doctrine of the Nicolaitanes" against the revealed Word of God's Holy Bible.
The Second Seal was announced by the living creature like an ox, which is a beast of burden known for its patient endurance, and also an animal of sacrifice. This was the Thyatira Age of which Jesus said concerning the saints whose lives reflected the nature of the living creature, "I know your works, and agape love, and service, and faith, and your patience, and as for your works, the last are more than the first."
Under the Second Seal Satan rode on a blood red horse and was given a straight sword for thrusting through all who refused to accept the dogma of his false church. Revelation 2:24-28, "as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan (as they say), I will put on you no other burden. But hold fast what you have till I come. And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him will I give power over the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron as My Father gave Me authority to rule them; they shall be dashed to pieces like pottery. And I will give him the morning star".
Speaking of the Second Seal in Matthew 24:6, Jesus said, "You shall hear of wars and rumors of wars. Don't be troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet". If you have not studied Church history, any encyclopedia will confirm that it was the Judaeo-Roman church and her pope behind whom Satan was veiled when he martyred over 68 million who refused the mark of the beast from the time of Augustine of Hippo until about 1850, a period dominated by the Thyatira Church Age (AD606-1520). (S.S. Schmucker, Discourse on the Commemoration of the Glorious Reformation of the 16th Century, 1838). Yet the Token of the Life of Christ in Thyatira was not violent reaction but "temperance" in a measured life of moderation. (Veiled behind Judaeo-Communism, Satan murdered as many nominal Christians in the Bolshevik Revolution, and more than twice as many souls in the remainder of the 20th century). Thyatira was the last Church Age in which the majority of church members were Jews. It lasted almost a thousand years and was the bloodiest. It was in this Age that Satan's church took the reins of universal political power.
According to Matthew 4:8-9, Satan heads the political power of every nationsmall wonder politicians are frequently identified as hypocrites and liars. Protocol VII. 4, "The principal factor of success in the political is the secrecy of its undertakings: the word should not agree with the deeds of the diplomat."
This Scripture implicates the UN, WB, IMF, BIS, WHO, RIIA, CFR, Bilderbergers, Trilateral Commission, and all instrumentalities of world government as satanic. It exposes the evil nature of Britain and the "Jews'" Empire of the City of LondonUnited States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the other colonies (John 8:44). Jesus declared the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church will rule over them all, and who rules over Rome and her pope. Rome will rule the "Jew's" New World Order until her incarnate pope rides to perdition (Revelation 17:11; 19:20; 20:10).
Some people imagine the Hebrews are the antichrist, but their eyes have been blinded to the Gospel that we might have a time of repentance. The antichrist is a Gentile, an impersonator of the Truth. Perhaps like those who will rule Israel until the consummation of all life on earth he will be a non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled "Jew" who impersonates the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Serpent seed as foretold by Moses and the Old Testament prophets (Genesis 27:39-41; Daniel 9:27; Malachi 1:1-5; Luke 21:24).
The antichrist has "a form of godliness but denies the faith." He is so likened to God's anointed he would deceive the very elect if it were possible (Matthew 24:24; II Timothy 3:5). The rider of this red horse is an impersonator of Christ's representative, the Holy Spirit, as the "Jews" are impersonators of the tribes of Israel.
Matthew 3:7-12, "When John the Baptist saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to Jesus' baptism, he said to them, O Serpent's seed, who has warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance: and don't think to say to yourselves, We have Abraham as our father. For I say to you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children to Abraham. And even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees: therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down, and cast into the fire."
God's almighty power is not limited by hereditary right. He may reject the natural seed as spurious children of Abraham for He is able to transform us spiritually unlearned Gentiles into genuine children of Abraham by faith (Galatians 3). "Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God" and the culling of the Spiritual deadwood of the unfruitful Hebrew trees had already begun without discrimination (I Corinthians 15:50).
"I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry: He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with Fire. His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the garner; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire".
John's baptism of water did not secure salvation it only called men to repentance. John identified himself as Christ's forerunner: the meanest of slaves unworthy even to carry His sandals, and he contrasted his immersion of the penitent in water with Christ's immersion of them in the Holy Ghost, or if impenitent, with the unquenchable hell-fire of judgment.
Each tree about to be cut down denoted an impenitent individual receiving his sentence. So when John cried out, "the axe is laid to the root of all the trees," he was talking of erroneous spiritual principles to which men clung for salvation. The Message of Brother Branham, the forerunner of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming laid the axe likewise to Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist, Baptist, Pentecostal and other man-made spiritual principles, while drawing the penitent into the "unity of the faith" by the baptism with the Holy Ghost (Matthew 25:6; Ephesians 4:13; Revelation 18:4).
Luke 21:29-36, "Jesus spoke to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; when they are already budding, you see and know that summer is now near. So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near. I assure you, this generation shall not pass away, till all is fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but My Words will not pass away. But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life and that Day come upon you unawares. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of all the earth; watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man" at His 'parousia'.
The "fig tree" represents Israel. This parable speaks of the revival of the nation of Israel in 1948, "and all the trees" or different peoples, which have asserted or been granted "self determination" in Laodicea which means "people's rights," or communism. Trees also represent spiritual principles or religions: and there has been a denominational revival during this time, followed by the revival of Christ's end-time Bride by the revelation of the Seven Thunders. Because the Holy Spirit falls on all flesh, the just and the unjust, the false church has its revival first (Matthew 13:30).
The peculiarity of the fig tree is that its blossoms precede the leaves so that although the state of Israel has been re-established, and this is "the sign of the end of the ages," what we see presently are leaves only, and not fruit. And as it was in the days of our Lord, "the time of figs is [still] not yet" (Mark 11:12-14). Israel was restored to Palestine in unbelief and God is not gathering the leaves of her Talmudic self-styled "Jews" with their arrogant chutzpah, but the fruit of 144,000 descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the faith of Jesus Christ.
Like the Fabian Society, founded in England in 1884, and operating under the symbol of a wolf in sheep's clothing to introduce socialism (communism) by a policy of 'gradualism,' antichrist came to life gradually within the circle of the Church, and finally this Message. Communism has taken over in the US, UK, Australia and the whole of the once Christian Western world as the spirit of Laodicea"people's rights," or Communism, has taken over the churchgradually.
From the Fire of Pentecost, the church in the Ephesian Age drifted from her first love, the Word. The very name Ephesus means "let go, relax, backslidden." When Paul wrote to the Church at Ephesus which he founded, he spoke of "the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience" (Ephesians 2:2). Later, when John pastored the Church at Ephesus, he wrote, "Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us" (I John 2:18-19).
The following Age was called Smyrna because it was dying. "Smyrna" derives from the word, "myrrh," and means "bitterness." A root of bitterness was rising up and choking out the Holy Spirit. Myrrh is used to anoint the dead, and the church was on its road to death. In the Pergamos Age that followed, Roman Catholicism was organized as the state church. The name Pergamos means "thoroughly married".
The Church Age under the Second Seal was Thyatira, which means "Dominating Female." This Age was characterized by a dominant force, a force that ruthlessly invades all, conquers all, and despotically controls. This was the Roman Catholic church. The church is a woman, and a dominating female is the greatest curse in all the world (Ecclesiastes 7:25-28). Satan has gradually worked within the circle of Christianity until today under the Fourth Seal, all the denominational churches are apostate and he is active within the Churches believing Brother Branham's Message.
In Joel 2:25, God foretold this gradual demise of the churches, but also the restoration of an election who "come out of Babylon" in these last days by the "Shout" of the Message of I Thessalonians 4:16. "I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, My great army which I sent among you".
Those three insects are three stages of one insect that matures into a Locust just as the white, red and black horses are three stages of the same spirit evolving into Satan's one world government under the pale horse whose rider is Death. What the Romans left, the Lutherans ate; what the Lutherans left, the Methodists ate; and what they left, the Pentecostals ate. But in these last days, God has sent us a prophet whose Message has restored the apostolic faith, finished the mystery of God, and is now calling the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her denominational daughters to the "unity of the faith" for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. George II and his fellow "useful idiots" have taken what the Pentecostals left, by which they will lead the world into a new Dark Age, to force the mark of the beast. nl298.htm
