Get ready for the USSA
The former head of the KGB, General Yevgeni Primakov, (reputed to be "the Henry Kissinger" of the Russian Federation Ed.), has been hired as a consultant by the US Department of Homeland Security. Do you think he will share his expertise in "security" to prepare US citizens for domestic internal passports under the pretense of fighting the never-ending "War on Terrorism"?
CAPPS II is the name of the new program which is technically under the auspices of the US Department of Transportation, but that's only . . . to use the Transportation Department's budget to buy the computer hardware and software they need.
The way it works is you give them your credit card and they slide it through like you would in a store and then they hit a button and the monitor reads: CAPPS II, SS CTF. The SS CTF evidently stands for State Security Citizen Threat File. . . It goes directly to . . . the office of Internal Security, which is coordinating the effort to establish citizen threat files on every US citizen. It will be a huge database including credit files, medical files, political and religious affiliation, military history, attendance at anti-government rallies, etc . . .
No announcement will be made to the public about what information exactly is being accessed or exactly how much information or what type of information is going to be included in each citizen's security threat file.
Primakov was laughing . . . It is being used to get the people used to new types of documentation and carrying new types of identity cards pursuant to the United States instituting a formal policy of internal passports. . . the White House will have more control over the American people than the Kremlin had over the Russian people when Stalin was alive. . .
What Primakov finds funny are what he calls these "right wing flag wavers" that were so anti-communist and now they're supporting a state policy of internal passports.
The irony is deafening.
Primakov continued by saying that he had been hired as a consultant and he was consulting on other "security" matters, an ongoing policy in various agencies of government (some of these offices haven't even been created yet) to consistently narrow the rights of the American people and to expand the power of government . . . he admitted that "it doesn't have much to do with fighting terrorism."
In other words, it's funny that we need a commie to come over here and tell people the truth. And remember it's not just any commie; it's the former head of the Soviet Secret Police (KGB), who is being paid for with taxpayers' money from all the naive flag wavers out there. . . Look who else was hired.
There's General Karpov, former KGB station chief of their Washington station at their embassy and the first director of the Russian Federal Security Service.
You could call this the "Sovietization of America." Primakov said he can't wait to get on the payroll (he called it the "pay corps," referring to the Heritage Foundation, the PNAC and all the other right wing foundations in the United States). He can't get over how many ex-KGB generals and colonels still want to come over to the United States and become consultants on the pay corps.
It has been reported that Nikita Kruschev Jr. works for the Heritage Foundation.
Another right wing foundation has Elena Stalin. . . Full story: survivalforum.com

US Leaders had Foreknowledge of Impending 9/11 Attacks
On the eve of a Republican National Convention invoking 9/11 symbols, sound bytes and imagery, half (49.3%) of New York City residents and 41% of New York citizens overall say that some of our leaders "knew in advance that attacks were planned on or around September 11, 2001, and that they consciously failed to act," according to the poll conducted by Zogby International. The poll of New York residents was conducted from Tuesday August 24 through Thursday August 26, 2004. Overall results have a margin of sampling error of +/-3.5.
The poll is the first of its kind conducted in America that surveys attitudes regarding US government complicity in the 9/11 tragedy. Despite the acute legal and political implications of this accusation, nearly 30% of registered Republicans and over 38% of those who described themselves as "very conservative" supported the claim.

What really happened to Flight 11 Passengers?
The Bad News is: American Airlines Flight 11 Boeing 767 was said to have departed Boston for Los Angeles 0745hrs on September 11, 2001 and crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center 0845hrs.
The Good News is: Four of five hijackers said to have been aboard the flight are alive and well today, with no recollection of boxcutters or Flight 11. And there are more survivors.
Of 12 crew listed, records indicate sprightly eighty-five year old stewardess Madeline Sweeney born December 17, 1916, survived 9/11, dying three months later on December 9, 2001. And young 'un, stewardess Dianne Snyder, born on July 6, 1945 passed peacefully to the wide blue yonder on October 25, 2001. In a quite remarkable display of espirit de corps, ninety two year old stewardess Elizabeth Ong who was born on February 11, 1909 and died on May 5, 2001, together with sixty one years young Joan Roger who was born on August 1940 and died April 20, 2001, flew posthumously on 9/11, which might explain why the coffee was cold and their pay cheques hot. The remaining eight crew listed have presumably survived 9/11 by at least three years because their deaths have not been registered in the United States.
Of 78 passengers 24 are recorded as having died on September 11, 2001; 18 somehow died at other times and in other places, while 36 are presumably alive and well quite unaffected by this flight of tragic 'City of London' fancy.

Dangerous Delusions: Advertising Nonsense about Advertising US
August 27, 2004 The question of how the US communicates its message to the Muslim world is arguably the most vital issue facing the nation today. It is therefore deeply disturbing when the debate is muddied by dangerously misleading pseudo-science.
"University Study Shows Advertising Can Improve US Image Abroad; Controversial Campaign By Charlotte Beers Shown Effective in Experiment," proclaimed a press release jointly issued this week by Southern Methodist University and Oklahoma State University.
Within 24 hours, the story was being carried around the world. Quoting directly from the press release, Indiantelevision.com reported: "A new study shows that a US government advertising campaign may have been successful in changing certain anti-American sentiments abroad. This runs contrary to the US government's decision to drop the ads because they were considered ineffective."
In fact, the $15 million "Shared Values" Initiative (SVI)dubbed the "Happy Muslims" campaign for its antiseptic profiles of Muslims living in the USsparked a firestorm of outrage across the Muslim world, forcing the government to pull the ads and ultimately leading to the resignation of State Department PR guru Charlotte Beers, a former Madison Avenue ad exec.
But none of that appears to matter to the advertising professors who authored the study, Alice Kendrick of SMU and Jami Fullerton of Oklahoma State. They claim to have empirical data that shows the ads actually worked. The evidence? A "survey" of 105 college kids in Britain. How many were Muslims? Well, actuallysix . . .
Not long ago, a Lebanese colleague from the American University of Beirut emailed me in despair. "Anti-American sentiment in the region is building up. America is even losing the modicum of sympathy it once garnered among moderate and liberal Arab thinkers," wrote this former Ivy League professor. "I don't know what can be done to avert the collective mood of anger, heightened by feelings of impotence and indignity. Finding shelter in radical Islam seems the only venue." . . .
"How it treats its Muslims at home is not an issue," a top Malaysian politician said while the ads were airing in that country. "The issue is the US administration's overall policy towards the Muslim world."
Anti-Americanism breeds and festers in the vast void between the values Americans live by at home and those they are perceived to operate by abroad. Until recent years, the US government could say one thing and do another. The rise of an aggressively independent media in the Muslim world has changed all that.
In a speech on public diplomacy last week, National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice said the terrorist threat can only be overcome "when lies are replaced by truth." Indeed. Full story: pintak.com
Comment: Bush, Blair and Howard have activated the nineteenth century military blueprint for World War III between Islam and the Political Zionists, to create universal hatred and chaosprerequisites for provoking "a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirit will from that moment be without a compass, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the pure light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view, a manifestation which will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."
What is He doing Now? Part II
Jesus Christ has three major dispensation claims:
Jesus is Prophet, Priest, and King, but these dispensation claims do not make Him a Trinity any more than Father, Son, and Holy Ghost make God a Trinity; and the Man cannot operate three offices concurrently so He comes in three Sons' Names. As Son of man He was the Prophet of Galilee who surrendered His life to be Adam's kinsman Redeemer. Then, veiled behind the flesh of Brother Branham He again revealed Himself in this prophetic office: "discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart . . . as it was in the days of Lot." And since we now have the fullness of the Word following the revelation of the Seven Seals, the Son of Man is present with us today (Luke 17:28-30; I Corinthians 13:10; Hebrews 4:12). As Son of God He was Priest, and as Son of David He will be King.
Three Time Periods:
Revelation 1:10-19 divides the New Testament into three time periods. Throughout this Book John represents the end-time Bride as Ezekiel represented in turn all of the Northern Kingdom, then all of the Southern Kingdom (Ezekiel 4). Later on mount Transfiguration, Peter, James and John represented the 144,000 elect New Testament Israelites while Moses represented the resurrected Church Age saints; and Elijah, we who will be changed in the atoms without death (Matthew 17:1-3). One individual can stand for many as our Representative Jesus Christ was the Lamb who took away the sins of many lost sheep in all generations of Adam's race.
In Revelation 1:10 John is in the Spirit in the Lord's Day, where Christ's end-time Bride is right now. However in the flesh, he was in man's day right here on earth like Christ's end-time Bride.
The Lord's Day commences at the seventh Trump when the Priesthood of Christ is over and the days of the prophecies to the Church are finished: the full number of Christ's Bride is complete, and Jesus having left His Father's throne stands as Judge.
Revelation 11:15, 19 "The seventh Trumpet Angel sounded; and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign forever and ever". . . The half hour's silence in heaven that began with the opening of the Seventh Seal (Revelation 8:1) is broken by the Seventh Trump "and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail." This signals the end of man's day, the close of the Gentile dispensation, and Satan's expulsion from heaven is proclaimed with another loud voice:
Revelation 12:10, "I heard a loud voice in heaven saying, Now the salvation, and the strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down".
It is time for the manifestation of the Sons of God. Then when the day of Pentecost has fully come again, we will be translated taking the Holy Spirit off the earth. Daniel's Seventieth Week will then commence and that man of sin, Rome's Pope incarnate of Satan, will be revealed (II Thessalonians 2:6-10; Revelation 13:4-10). The tribulation commencing with the earthquake will come upon Christ-rejecting Gentiles and all those without the Seal of God. Eventually, all but the 144,000 elect Israelites will vicariously worship Satan, or be martyred.
John was instructed, "Write the things you have seen in the Patmos vision" (Revelation 1:12-16), "and the things which are now" (Revelation 2-3), "and the things which shall be after the Seven Church Ages" (Revelation 4:1-22:21). Three time periods.
1. The Things which You have Seen:
After His ascension from the Mount of Olives, Christ entered the heavenly sanctuary as Son of God and High Priest to intercede for the ignorance of the Church Age saints so long as the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals, but in Revelation 1:10-17 He walks out from the Holy of Holies as Son of Man and Judge.
In the Patmos vision John is shown things which are to come in the Lord's Day. Revelation 1:12-16, "I turned to see the Voice which spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands; and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the feet, and girded about the breast with a golden girdle. His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were like a flame of fire; His feet were like fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters. He had in His right hand seven stars: and out of His mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength".
This "One like the Son of man" in the midst of the seven lampstands in the southern side of the holy place is Christ incarnate or personified in His glorified Bride drawn out from all Seven Church Ages. This is the finished Body made up of many members, both Hebrews and Gentiles described by Paul in I Corinthians 12. The golden girdle is no longer around the waist where the priest must wear it as he ministers in the temple; it is around His shoulders (Isaiah 9:6) for He is not now the priest but the Judge. His service has been rendered. The priesthood is over. The days of the prophecy are finished. John 5:22 has come to pass, "For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment to the Son." And incarnate in His Bride, "the saints shall judge the world" (I Corinthians 6:2). His brazen feet signify perfect judgment in equity which will not be tempered or appealed (Revelation 22:11).
Jesus did not come to make Himself known. He came not to reveal the Son but to reveal and make known the Father (John 1:18; 17:6, 26). And His Bride was born and raised to make known the Son (I Corinthians 11:7). God has glorified His Name in Jesus Christ, and will glorify It again in Christ's Bride as revealed in the vision on Mount Transfiguration where Moses represented the resurrected Church Age saints, and Elijah the end-time Bride who will not see death (John 17:10; 12:28; Ephesians 1:12).
The white wig signifies wisdom, not age; and the long robe, His complete authority to mete out justice. Those fiery flaming eyes of the Judge are even now recording the lives of all flesh. The voice as the sound of many waters will be the voice of every man rising in judgment against the sinner who would not take warning (Revelation 17:15) for every Christian was the voice of Jesus Christ by the Holy Ghost down through the Ages.
The seven stars are the seven Church Age messengers who received the power and authority for their ministry from His right hand. The two-edged sword signifies the Word, and His countenance like the sun at its zenith signifies the glory of the Lord manifest in the Shekinah that overshadows our Lord and "shall arise with healing in its rays" at the first resurrection (Malachi 4:3; John 5:26; 14:19; I Corinthians 15:20-58).
The Seven Church Ages ended in 1963, Christ claimed the Book and opened the Seals, and with intercession over, "He who is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he who is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he who is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he who is holy, let him be holy still" (Revelation 22:11).
John 5:26-27, "As the Father has Life in Himself; so has He given to the Son to have Life in Himself; and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of man".
We are looking forward to an earthquakethe sign of the dispensation change. Brother Branham said, "There'll be millions die at one time . . . it will be worse that the last day of Pompeii" (William Branham, ibid p. 566:5; Doing God a Service without it being His Will, p. 7:25; Choosing a Bride, p. 35:5; Hebrews 12:26-29). Tidal waves will sweep the earth, capsizing ships and sending a tidal wave to Arizona (Israel and the Church #I, p. 48:87; Ashamed, p. 9:61; Luke 21:25).
Matthew 27:45 is our type: "From the sixth hour (0900hrs1200hrs) until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land." The second crucifixion of the Word is taking place now. The first resurrection and the manifestation of the Sons of God will commence three days after the earthquakes sink Los Angeles and split the Mount of Olives. Brother Branham said the "rising of the Sons" will take place between 0600hrs and 0900 hours some morning one Nisan 14soon, presumably Israel time. Then there will be a ministry that will show great wonders, but there will be no redemption. That will be all over.
Israel's dispensation ended at the crucifixion but Jesus continued preaching, vindicating the Words of the prophets and the testimony of the saints to souls who were in prison and could not repent. That ministry will have to repeat in the Bride during the manifestation of the Sons of God. After about forty-days, she will be translated to the Sky as Christ was translated.
Revelation 6:12 is the antitype of Calvary: "I looked when Christ opened the Sixth Seal, and beheld, a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood".
God is about to deliver His end-time Bride and call the elect Israelites out from the Serpent seed's Jerusalem which Jesus views "spiritually as Sodom and Egypt" (Revelation 11:8). Now tell me the prophecies of Isaac (Genesis 27:39-41), Daniel 9:27, Ezekiel 43, Jesus (Luke 21:24) and Paul (Romans 11:25-26) are false! "Jews" are not Hebrews and Israelites. Modern Israel is not ruled by Hebrews and blood Israelites but by Edomites, Hittites and Canaanites as foretold by God's vindicated prophets.
Remember Bride, as the enemies of the Bridegroom were the most trusted in His house, the enemies of the end-time Bride are among the most revered ministers in this Message. Brother Branham said, "Now watch, not just the carnal church, the one out there, the regular routine carnal church, the Esau group. We got now the Judastarian group, which is far more treacherous, far more treacherous, coming right up into the very hands of the blessing. Just like in Hebrews 6 and 10, how he said, "Having once made partakers, and has tasted the powers of the world to come, and has done all these things ofand then if they have received the knowledge of the truth, and then if they willfully turn away" ("willfully," what is that?) "counting the Blood of the covenant, wherewith they were sanctified, an unholy thing" (Hearing, Recognizing and Acting on the Word of God, p. 15:105-106).
When God delivered Israel from natural Egypt there was "thick darkness in all the land three days . . . but the Children of Israel had light" (Exodus 10:21-29). Darkness is so thick in spiritual Egypt, Jerusalem, today, "Jews" cut it with a knife, weigh and wrap it in their filthy controlled media, education, false histories, perversions of Bible truths, sub-sewer Babylonian Talmud, lewd music, dance, theater, TV programs and movies, polluting innocent souls throughout the world, and peddle themselves as "God's chosen people"!
Here's what Michael Hoffman wrote when he challenged "kosher-Conservative Muslim-basher," Dr. Robert Morey, to debate the topic, "Resolved, Judaism is a greater threat to Christianity than Islam".
"I will point out that Muslims do not make cable TV programs luring Amish women to Hollywood so they can be filmed cavorting half-nude on a Los Angeles beach. No Hollywood mogul would tolerate any ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Judaic youth being seduced and filmed in this disgraceful manner, but it's perfectly fine for ultra-conservative Amish youth to be lured by Zionist Leslie Moonves with cash and other blandishments in order to ritually demean their Christian heritage before an audience of millions on the UPN channel; and this squalid evil is by no means an exception, but the rule when it comes to New York and Hollywood media."
"Furthermore, who took Christ out of Christmas in America's public schools and civic squares, Muslims or the ADL? Who honors Jesus as a prophet and defends His Holy Name against blasphemy, and who despises and insults Him as a feces-stewed sorcerer; mullahs or rabbis?"
God placed "enmity" between the Seed of the first and last Adam and the seed of the Serpent (Genesis 3:15). Your Bible said that Ishmael's people, the Semitic Muslims would live in the presence of the blood Israelites, but because of infighting among themselves would never be a strategic threat to Israel (Genesis 16:12). Now search the history books and prove God's Word. Is it true, or is God a liar and the propaganda of the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled "Jews" of the City of London who rule Israel and our nations true? Who is the aggressor? Who is this master race at enmity with anything that does not genuflect to its will?
Brother Branham said, "The white man's a rascal." Why? Because instead of being led by the Spirit of God he is led by the seed of the Serpent, working under a different name and in a different occupation as if he were a son of Adam!
Now search your Bible and history and see if you can identify the Serpent's seed Israel was to utterly destroy whenever they were found in the Promised Land. Did Israel intermarry with them, or did they not? Did Israel compel the Serpent's seed on pain of death to assimilate, or did they not? In AD740 was the Serpent's seed kingdom of Khazaria converted overnight to Talmudic Judaism, or was it not?
Who was behind 9/11? The City of London and Zionists perps or a few Muslim patsies? Who commands US, UK and Australian armed services? Self-styled "Jews" or Muslims? Speak before you are muzzled: once the Muslims are hogtied, you will be next. But they only have the power you yield them by heeding men of corrupt mindsreprobates concerning the faith, and your own laziness in not "proving all things" and speaking boldly (II Timothy 3,4; Galatians 4:16).
The Gentile denominations invaded Israel's 2,000 year monopoly of spiritual Darkness in 1963 when they rejected the revelation of the Seven Seals. Since then, God has been calling the wise and foolish virgin out of Darkness to the Light of the fullness of His Word (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4). Today only true Spiritual Israel, the Bride of Christ, has Light in her dwellings.
After the plague of darkness in Egypt God laid one more plague upon Pharaoh. When all Israel were under the blood of the first Passover lamb, a type of Jesus Messiah, God sent the Death Angel through the land and slew the first-born of man and beast belonging to every house not under the blood (Exodus 11). And after darkness had descended for three hours over "spiritual Egypt" at Christ's crucifixion, God sent Rome's army under Titus as His angel of Death.
Contrary to Titus' intention, the very same month and day that Nebuchadnezzar burnt the first temple, a soldier fired the second, and all Titus' efforts to stop the blaze were unavailing, God marking the judgment plainly as from Him. Titus himself recognized this: "We fought with God on our side, it is God who pulled the Jews out of these strongholds, for what could the hands of men or machines have availed against these towers?" The old and weak were killed, the children under 17 sold as slaves, the rest were sent to the Egyptian mines, the amphitheaters, and Rome, where they formed part of Titus' triumphal train.
The 10th legion under Terentius Rufus "so thoroughly leveled and dug up, that no one visiting Jerusalem would believe it had even been inhabited (Josephus, The Antiquities of the Jews, Book VII, 1 footnote 2), fulfilling Christ's words. Luke 19:44, They "shall level you and your children within you even with the ground; and they will not leave you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation" (in mercy).
If God so judged Israel while one of Daniel's Seventy Weeks yet remained, what will He do to Gentiles who fail to receive His visitation through the voice of the seventh angel "proclaiming the day of vengeance of our God" (Isaiah 62:2)? Peter said, "Every soul, who will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people" (Acts 3:23).
We are living into the hour when "darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people." When the Seventh Trumpet sounds, and God turns back to an election from natural Israel, "All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world" (Revelation 13:8). Once the Bride is translated, the only souls on earth whose names are so written will be 144,000 Israelites and their two prophets. The "saved" whose names remain in Adam's Book of Life will be slain physically, while those in Darkness will be slain spiritually by the Death Angel now on his way to perdition, "and death and hell follow with him" (Revelation 6:8).
John's Patmos vision reveals "God's chosen people" are the Spiritual offspring of Abraham's Seed (singular), the many membered Body of our Lord Jesus Christ. This "One like the Son of man" is Christ's true Church, the Bride of all Ages, born of His Spirit and washed in His Blood. The 144,000 elect Israelites, will of course be our personal servants (Galatians 3:16,27-29; Ephesians 1:3-4; I Peter 2:9-10; Isaiah 49; Hosea 2:23; Romans 9:6).
This Patmos vision is set in the time of the latter rain. Too late, people will run to the church for sanctuary. Brother Branham said, "When that time comes, there'll be a persecution rise and the Holy Ghost will fall: Methodist and Baptists and all will speak with tongues, praise God, heal the sick, and prophesy, and all the signs and wonders will be coming. The elect will go up, and the remnant will be left here to go through the tribulation period. And at the end of the time, when they see what has happened, they'll have to go down in martyrdom" (COD, p. 55:271; Joel 2:28-32; Revelation 1:7c, d).
This is the time of the manifestation of the sons of God with the "third pull" in the Bride; a time of great signs and wonders when what she says God will do. These will not be publicly displayed as they were when God revealed Jesus Christ in Brother Branham's Ministry (Luke 17:28-30). Their purpose will be to raise faith in the Bride so she can change in the atoms.
The Gentile Church was born through persecution, and she will be taken Home through the same kind of persecution. The Voice of God is sounding forth the Word of prophecy through this Newsletter and the preaching of ministers world-wide to make us aware of and prepared for what is coming upon earth. When Jesus laid His hand right hand upon John in Revelation 1:17, saying, "Fear not," He was laying His right hand of power and authority upon you and me and on every saint in His end-time Bride. Every time the Lord uses those words, "Fear not," there is an engagement at hand which will involve great danger and suffering and deprivation. So He says, "Don't be afraid of man or what he can do to you. I am with you, and My grace is sufficient for you. When you pass through the waters, they will not overflow you. Not even in death are you defeated. You are more than conquerors".
The Stone of Daniel 2 is Coming to smite the Gentile world empire, (Revelation 11:15) and all who stumble at the Capstone revelationHebrew or Gentile (I Peter 2:6-10; Acts 3:23). The "iron" of "citizens" loyal to Rome is well-mixed with the "clay" of non-Roman Catholics in every nation under heaven that will form the feet and the toes of the revived Roman world empire.
Brother Branham said that subsequent to the California earthquake, "I believe, one of these glorious days, when this united confederation of church goes together, and the new pope is brought out of the United States and put over there [i.e. in Jerusalem] according to prophecy (Isaiah 14:13-14; Daniel 11:45; II Thessalonians 2:4), then they'll form an image like unto the beast. And I tell you, the true Church of God will be drove together. The real, true believers [already called] out of Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Nazarene, Pilgrim Holiness, whatever they'll be, will go together and cemented by the love of God, that'll make the Body of the Lord Jesus Christ; all the believers. And agnostics and shallow-minded will be cast to one side; they'll go right on into the confederation of churches" (Acts of the Holy Spirit, p. 12:87).
Every major world religion, even the (once) Protestant denominations, now has offices in the Vatican (not in Mecca) and they will co-operate to organize global humanitarian relief following the earthquakes. Only religious non-government organizations and the UN have the experience and infrastructure to manage disaster relief on such a scale. Religious differences will be laid aside but Muslim fanatics will rush to defend the site of the demolished Dome of the Rock from Jewish fanatics wanting to build a third temple over its ruins.
Israel's first Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, who knew the plans of the World Revolutionary Movement, wrote in Look Magazine, January 16, 1962, "With the exception of the USSR as a federal Eurasian State, all other continents will become united in a world alliance, at whose disposal will be an international police force. All armies will be abolished and there will be no more wars. In Jerusalem, the United Nations (a truly United Nations) will build a shrine of the prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the supreme court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah." He meant Isaiah 56:7 (Mark 11:17), but in this life it will be Isaiah 14:12-16!!
Zechariah 14:1-2, "Behold, the day of the Lord comes, and your spoil shall be divided in the midst of Jerusalem. For I will gather all nations to battle against you (Joel 3:2); the city shall be taken, the houses rifled, and the women ravished; half of the city shall go forth into captivity, but the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city".
Joel 2:32 confirms that at this time God is only dealing with an election of 144,000 Israelites in mount Zion and in Jerusalem, which from the reign of David was God's only provided place of worship for Israel (Deuteronomy 16:5-6; Isaiah 4:3). That one Scripture cuts every "Jew" (so-called) and genuine blood Israelite not living in the Promised Land out of the covenant. Even the self-styled "Jew" David Ben Gurion said, "A Jew, who does not live in Israel, lives in sin".
After the close of the Gentile dispensation God will gather Syria, Iran, Libya, Ethiopia, Turkey and other Mohammedan nations against Israel in the same way and with the same result as when He roused Egypt to pursue Israel after her dispensation in slavery (Exodus 14:4).
Brother Branham applied Zechariah 14:1-2 to the United States as well as to Jerusalem. Both apostate nations are producing a surfeit of loathing among all peoples of the world, even from erstwhile friends, on account of their barbaric covetousness and cruelty toward innocent, helpless, mainly Muslim civilians. And when the opportunity arises, as it will when earthquakes sink Los Angeles and split the mount of Olives, men will seek to extract justice (Isaiah 29:6; Zechariah 14:4-5; Revelation 12:16; 16:18-19).
The destruction of the Dome of the Rock by earthquake, not the Temple Mount Terrorists, will mark the close of the Gentile dispensation (William Branham, C.O.D., 324:715; 616:Q145; Matthew 24:15).
Speaking of Malachi 4:1 which is the time of Zechariah 14:1-2, the Prophet said, "For, behold, the day comes, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud . . . (like the Americans and so forth shall be stubble: . . . (It's going to burn.). . . and the day that comes that shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts . . . it shall leave them neither root nor branch" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 150:6). This would also seem to confirm the last of seven consecutive visions God showed Brother Branham in 1933.
In his sermon, "The Handwriting on the Wall" (#29:5, p. 19:152-155), he again identified Zechariah 14:1-2 with America, "Listen friend, there isn't a thing, this very hour, in the next twenty-five minutes or ten minutes, for Russia to send up its satellite and sweep it over here across this nation, train its missile, say, "Surrender, or in two minutes you'll be nothing but dust." They can do it right now. Think of it. They can do it right now. What would happen? Plane load after plane load, ship load after ship load, of ungodly communistic soldiers would swallow our lands, would grab our girls, and take them into the street and treat them like cattle, ram a sword through them, go into our homes and take our wives out and bust the baby's head against the wall, and ravish our women. You say one thing, it belongs to them." (Read Isaiah 13:9-16).
"You say, "Will our Pentagon surrender? Sure it would. That would be the only sensible thing for it to do. It would have to do it. If it didn't, we'd be nothing but powder in a few minutes. We'd have maybe a few more hours of life, but what a slaughter."
"What? They may be loading on the planes right now. The ships may be in harbor. Soon, these things that we're talking about can be a reality. There's not one thing left for it to happento keep it from happening according to prophecy. Here we are. And next week, you don't know what condition you could be in. The handwriting is on the wall. We're a weighed in the balance and found wanting."
"Now, if these things are true and you see they are true, then how close is the coming of the Lord? Tonight, I want to continue. What, where will the church be when this takes place? Now, you who have always been taught that the church will take the tribulation, come find out if this is so close, if this destruction is so close, how much closer is the coming of the Lord? For it'll take place before the church ever . . . Before one rocket hits this country, the church will be in the arms of Christ and gone. We're at the end. It can happen any time." (See the same title preached on January 8, 1958, p. 11:84-90).
Russia will attack and invade mainland USA, but the world's religious leaders, with the Devil-incarnate Pope as their spokesman, will jointly command their communicants in the Russian forces to lay down their arms and return to their homelands, restoring peace and an end to World War III that is in its early stages as I speak. Revelation 13:3-5, "I stood on the sand of the sea, and I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns [the divisions of Imperial Rome reunited in Papal Rome at the end-time (Revelation 17:12-13)], and on his heads blasphemous names [of denominations like Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, all calling themselves churches of God (Revelation 17:3,5)]. And the beast which I saw was like a leopard [Greece]; his feet were like the feet of a bear [Medo-Persia], and his mouth like the mouth of a lion [Babylon]: and the dragon [Satan] gave him his power, and his throne [Rome], and great authority. [Because the pope is now incarnate of Satan and the evil spirits from all four pagan Gentile world kingdoms (Revelation 18:2)]. And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded; and his deadly wound was healed [when Imperial Rome revived as Papal Rome]: and all the world wondered and followed the beast [as we have expounded]. And they [vicariously] worshipped the dragon [Satan] who gave authority to the beast: and they worshipped the beast [Papal Rome], saying, Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him? [Although Russia has conquered the US world superpower by force of arms at the optimum moment, the Roman beast has defeated Russia by one command fired from the mouth of her Pope]. And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and he was authorized to continue forty two months" [the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week].
This Pope, unanimously elected president of one totalitarian world government by nations and religions meeting in Rockefeller's UN, will rule from Jerusalem, the international zone proclaimed by UN Resolution 181 of 1947. He will have negotiated a seven-year agreement with the self-styled Jewish International Banksters to refinance the US dollar and restore world trade. Subsequently these arrangements negotiated behind closed doors according to a prearranged plan will be announced to the world as a fait accompli. As Illuminus F. D. Roosevelt said, "If something happens in politics you can bet it was planned that way".
Brother Branham said, "Rome has acquired nearly all the supplies of gold. The Jews have the bonds and all the paper. At the right time, the harlot will destroy the present day money system by calling in all the paper, and demanding gold. With no gold, the system falls. [Bullion banks are short sold now, the gold they borrowed they have sold below replacement cost and new production is years behind demand Ed]. The Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance, and the harlot church will take over the whole world . . . This ecumenical move will end up with Rome at the head even though the people did not envision it that way. This is so because in Revelation 17:3-6 it states that the whore, Mystery Babylon is seated on the beast. She is controlling the last or fourth empire. This Roman Church is doing that. With the world church system under her Rome will be controlling, and this image [church system] will be obedient to Rome because Rome controls the gold of the world" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 314:1; 377).
At this time the mantle will fall upon two Hebrew prophets to deliver the Gospel to Israel, anointing them with the measure of Spirit that once endued Moses and Elijah. But the Patmos Vision portrayed "God's chosen People," their glorified Queen. nl339.htm
