A Peek behind Bush II's 'War on Tyranny'
February 14, 2005 A new 'War on Tyranny' is being groomed to replace the outmoded War on Terror . . . the new Rumsfeld war agenda includes a list of ten priority countries. In addition to Iran, it includes Syria, Sudan, Algeria, Yemen and Malaysia. According to a report in the January 23 Washington Post, Gen. Richard Myers, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, also has a list of what the Pentagon calls "emerging targets" for pre-emptive war, which includes Somalia, Yemen, Indonesia, and Philippines and Georgia . . . And, of course, North Korea, which seems to serve as a useful permanent friction point to justify US military presence in the strategic region between China and Japan. Whether it is ten or twelve targets, the direction is clear.
What is striking is just how directly this list of US 'emerging target' countries, 'outposts of tyranny' maps onto the Administration strategic goal of total global energy control, which is clearly the central strategic focus of the Bush-Cheney Administration. Full story: 321energy
Zionists Nuke Downtown Beirut Again!
In a desperate attempt to slow down their forthcoming defeat in Palestine, Jewish Special Forces micro-nuke former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, then instruct western media outlets to falsely blame the atrocity on Syria. . .
Bearing in mind that this blast was caused by a highly specialized micro-nuke sourced from Dimona in the Negev Desert, the Syrian spokesman was obviously correct. Early forensic examination indicates this critical nuclear weapon was from the same class and batch used on Bali during October 2002, in a murderous and blatant attempt to force Australians to believe in the entirely fictional "al Qaeda" and "Jemaah Islamiyah" alleged terrorist groups.

The Gospel of the Kingdom, or God Incarnate/Satan Incarnate
Matthew addressed his Gospel to Israelites, thus we must stand in Hebrew shoes in order to understand what he meant. In Matthew 24:1-3 the Disciples asked Jesus three questions:
- When will the temple be utterly destroyed?
- What will be the sign of your 'parousia' Coming, and
- What will be the sign of the end of the ages or dispensations?
Jesus began his reply with a general discourse from Matthew 24:4-13 whence we discern the first Five Seals, but from which the Israelites will no doubt discern their first Five Trumpets. Verses 4-5, 6, 7, and 8 symbolize the first Four Seals of grace to us Gentiles under the anointings of the four living creatures of Revelation 6, which were the ensigns of Israel's four leading tribes who camped around the Ark of the Covenant. These in turn type the four Gospels that guard the way to the Presence of God in Christ, for the Ark was a type of Christ. So in spite of Israel's failure, "the Law having a shadow of good things to come was . . . a Light to us Gentiles").
The Fourth Seal in Matthew sums up the first three Seals and five Trumpet judgments in the words, "All these are the beginning of sorrows"earth's birth pangs for renewal. And while the Fifth and Sixth Trumpets inflicted the first Two Woes in World Wars I and II under the Fourth Seal, the Third Woe in World War III will eclipse those judgments with the martyrdom of Israel in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week, Armageddon and the consummation under the Seventh Trumpet and Sixth Seal.
Under the first Four Seals elect Israelites were baptized into Christ's Body where there is no distinction between Judahite and Gentile. The "souls under the altar" in the Fifth Seal are Israelites who were martyred "for the Word of God, and the testimony which they held," from Calvary to the Bride's catching-away two thousand years later under the Sixth Seal, thereby preserving their names in the Book of Life and their salvation. These are not with the born-again saints under the Golden Altar in the Holy Place but under the Sacrifice Altar in the Outer Court and will be granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment. "He who endures to the end shall be saved".
No living creature announces the Fifth Seal because grace is over and the door is shut (Matthew 25:10). The four Gospels that guarded the way into the Presence represented the saints redeemed under each of those Seals as the Cherubim in the Old Testament represented the elect of the twelve Tribes. As Satan is cast down to earth and the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet manifest God's judgment the saints will put on glorified flesh in the first resurrection. Consequently no living creature announces the Sixth Seal, while the unwritten Seventh Seal opened under the Fourth Seal and is the spoken Word of "the seven thunders" of Revelation 10 that "finished the mystery of God" contained in the six written Seals that restores wise virgin to the apostolic faith (I Corinthians 13:10; I Thessalonians 4:14-16; Revelation 8:1; 10:1-7). The Eagle has spoken through the mouth of God's Prophet and "the Voice of the seventh angel" is "riding this trail once more" in his recorded and transcribed sermons and in the ministry of Christ's end-time Bride (Revelation 10:8-11). The 144,000 elect Israelites will escape the White Throne Judgment, but like their non-elect brethren under Fifth Seal they will be martyred (Matthew 27:25; John 11:49-52; Revelation 6:11; 14:12 15:4).
Matthew 24:14, "And this Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness to all nations; and then shall the end come." The Gospel of the kingdom must be preached to all nations of Adam's race as God promised Abraham in Genesis 12:1-3, "not in Word only, but through power and manifestations of the Holy Ghost." The Gospel must be believed for what it says and manifest as vindication of His faithfulness . . . then shall the end come, and His prophetic purpose set forth in Daniel 9:24 and Acts 3:21 accomplished with the restoration of things as they were before sin entered Eden, the kingdom will be restored to Israel with Jesus Christ as King and His Gentile Bride as their Queen.
"The end" is the close of the Gentile dispensations, the manifestation of the Sons of God by the "third pull" in the Bride, "Jacob's trouble" and the consummation of life. As grace for the "nations" ends with the Gentile dispensation, subsequent preaching will be to souls imprisoned now as "they find no place of repentance, though they seek it carefully with tears" (Hebrews 12:17; Revelation 22:11). Once the Seventh Trump signals the close of the Fourth and Fifth Seals and the opening of the Sixth Seal only 144,000 elect Israelites will be able to receive the Gospel of the Kingdom. And even they will be martyred like the foolish virgin and other classes of the "saved".
During the tribulation there will be no Christians to "preach the Gospel to every nation"; we will all be at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the Sky and the only Christians on earth will be a 'Moses' and an 'Elijah' in Israel preaching in Hebrew, not Yiddish or Ladino to blood Israelites not Israeli Goy impersonators.
In verses 15-21 Jesus answers the Disciples' question regarding the destruction of the temple. This prophecy was fulfilled by the armies of Titus in AD70. Verses 22-28 establish that the siege of Jerusalem began the great tribulation (Revelation 7:14) Christians suffered for 2,000 years and speaks of Christ's 'parousia' Coming to us under the Seventh Seal in the threefold PROCESS of the 'rapture' which is "shortening the days" lest we too should perish in Armageddon (I Thessalonians 4:14-17). After our translation the tribulation will fall upon Israelites in "the time of Jacob's trouble," and upon foolish virgin and other categories of the "saved." Then all life will be destroyed when Earth splits open and falls from its axis toward the sun (Isaiah 24:19; II Peter 3:1-13).
Matthew 24:29, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days [the Gentile dispensation], the sun will be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken".
"Those days" end when Christ's Bride is complete and "in speaking conditions." His first (Gk.) 'erchomai' Coming was through the Virgin's womb to play the part of Adam's KINSMAN Redeemer and redeem His Bride on Calvary. His second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming was in W_O_R_D form through the mouth of the seventh angel to call His end-time Bride out from man-made impersonations of Christianity to maturity in "the unity of the faith" for the manifestation of the sons of God and the translation (Revelation 3:14; 10:1-7; 18:4; Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Romans 8:19; Ephesians 4:13; I Corinthians 13:10). Hereby the apostolic S_O_N-Light that rose in the east was restored in the west or evening-time (Joel 2:25; Zechariah 14:7; Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; 24:27; Acts 3:21-23, etc). Immediately after the tribulation of the Gentiles an earthquake will sink Los Angeles, volcanic activity and tidal waves will shake the earth and also the heavens; the sign of Christ's 'parousia' to Israel will appear over Jerusalem unrecognized as our sign (see above) was not straightway recognized, and two Hebrew prophets will receive their anointing. Christ comes only three times. On His third Coming or second physical (Gk.) 'erchomai' return He will step out on the atomic ashes of the wicked with the glorified saints of all Ages, for a thousand years of peace.
At the close of the Gentile dispensation the moon or church, no longer reflecting the S_O_N-Light of the "present Truth" will be Satan's instrument to extinguish the faith and slay the saints (Revelation 3:20; Romans 11:32; II Thessalonians 2:3-12; Revelation 13). Cast down to earth, Satan will incarnate "that man of sin," and "fallen stars," denominational ministers, will serve the beast and its (once) Protestant image.
"Then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven." This was the second question asked by the Disciples, the sign of Christ's 'parousia' to Israel. The Gentile Bride has seen their sign and will be translated three and a half years before the 144,000 recognize the significance of their sign over the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:4). On February 28, 1963, the Shekinah appeared over Arizona as this Cloud shaped like Hoffman's "Head of Christ at 33," white-wigged as a Judge in answer to the prophecies of Daniel 7:9, Matthew 17:1-9, Acts 1:9-11 and Revelation 1:7. Photographs and scientific papers describing this phenomenon appear in encyclopedia year books, books on meteorology and scientific journals. Articles appeared in Life Magazine May 17, 1963, New York Times, London Observer, etc.,
"And then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man Coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory." Here the foolish virgin will recognize they have missed the full Atonement or new birth, and must be martyred for the faith they hold, or take the mark of the beast and be lost.
But how do they 'see' "the Sign of the Coming of the Son of man"?
The foolish virgin will look back to what they were taught by the Prophet of Malachi 4:5-6, the angel to the Seventh Church Age. The wise and the foolish virgin are both disciples of Brother Branham: each heard the "Shout" of His Message and came out of Rome and her Protestant daughters who partake of her unbelief in the revealed Word (Matthew 25:1-13; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4). This will not be a visual experience but the realization and latent understanding that they are without "oil" of the Holy Spirit or new birth, and have missed the 'rapture'.
The rapture is a revelation; it is the threefold process of growing into "the unity of the faith" by the end-time Message, which is the fullness of the Word or Jesus Christ in W_O_R_D Form. Christ's mediation was fulfilled when He opened the Seals in 1963, so without receiving His fullness by faith in the Message we cannot be "one" with God as He prayed in Gethsemane. The foolish virgin believe the "letter" of the Message without the "Spirit" and the rapture is a revelation, a threefold process that endues Christ's Bride with faith for the manifestation of the sons of God and the translation.
"And He shall send His angels with the sound of the Great Trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect [Israelites] from the four winds [of World War III], from one end of heaven to the other" (Isaiah 27:13; Matthew 24:31).
These "angels" are the two prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11. After the last Trump they will be endued with the Spiritual anointings of Moses and Elijah to gather 144,000 blood Israelites to regeneration by the revelation of the feast of the Seven Trumpets. Revelation 12:14: "The woman [Israel] was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, [where the True Church has ever been] into her place [the Land of the Covenant], where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent"for the reconfirmation of the new Covenant in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week.
When the last member of the Bride is baptized into the Body, the Seventh Trumpet will announce the end of the Gentile dispensation. Los Angeles and the Dome of the Rock will be destroyed by earthquakes, Satan cast will be cast down from heaven and the Church Age saints will commence the first resurrection. Meanwhile, the end-time Bride will be hunted and persecuted by religious and civil authorities, causing us to exercise faith and manifest by the 'third pull' that we are the Sons of God and put on faith for translation grace. Oh there is a great time ahead for those who are in Christ.
Remember, He had to intercede until the last elect written in the Lamb's Book of Life from the foundation of the world and ordained to the Church Age Body of PART-Word was redeemed or baptized into the Body in Laodicea. Jesus died for every soul ordained to eternal Life and is not willing that any child of Adam should perish. By foreknowledge God knew who would receive eternal Life and who would not. When His intercessory days were over in 1963, the mercy seat became a judgment seat (Revelation 4 and 5). Now "He who is filthy will be filthy still. He who is holy will be holy be holy still."
A Seal reveals a mystery of redemption. Under the first four Seals the mystery of the "letters" of Revelation 2-3 were revealed to the "angels" to each Church Age whose Message proclaimed a Spiritual war. Then God took His messenger with the elect of that Age and laid them asleep.
A Vial is a temporary judgment poured out as a plague on the non-elect, to separate the "lost" carnal church that ignored or impersonated the Message, from the "saved" foolish virgin whose understanding was flawed, because they were dilatory or because their Message pastor had not received a clear revelation of the "present Truth"what Jesus is doing now (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7). And as the plagues of Egypt caused unrepentant pharaoh to harden his heart, the Vials of wrath will harden the heart of recalcitrant sinners.
On the other side of the Seals, Seven Trumpet mysteries brought natural warfare upon natural Israel as chastisement for failing to receive grace by the Gospel Trumpets of the messengers with a view to correction and atonement by the present Truth throughout the Church Ages of the Gentile dispensation.
Now the actors in this great play are God and Satan. Each is building his own kingdom. God is incarnating His little Flock, Christ's Bride, by His Spirit; Satan is incarnating his huge church by his spirit.
Christ has been incarnating His Bride by imparting His Own character through faithline upon line, precept upon precept, Word upon Word, here a little and there a littleuntil the whole Body grows into the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ in the unity of the faith, for the manifestation of the sons of God and the translation.
Satan has been incarnating his church by wisdom against the faith"so close it would almost deceive the elect if it were possible." Today Satan is impersonating this end-time Message within the circle of those who have been called out from organized religion. They quote the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and obey the strict legalism of sanctification, but fail the Word test; without a revelation of this Message they are substituting wisdom for faith which is Balaamism and the mark of the beast. Instead of worshiping God by faith Satan's church is forming an image to the beast by worshiping his wisdom.
This diagram illustrates how those two spirits have been at work within the framework of the Christian church since Pentecost. When the Spirit of Christ returned, so did the spirit of anti-Christ. Each time the enemy came in like a flood God raised up a standard against him. Satan began his ride on the white horse impersonating Christ who will return on a white horse of the pure Word, followed by His resurrected saints on white horses. A 'horse' is a beast, and in the Bible a beast symbolizes a "power." Satan is building his huge earth-bound kingdom through a trinity of spiritual + political + demon = Satan incarnate as Death, riding the pale horse to perdition with his subjects.
Christ is building His kingdom by His spoken Word. The saints of each Church Age manifest a different virtue of His glorious character, finally the Fullness of agapao love will be expressed in His Capstone Bride.
In the First Seal Christ's attributes are symbolized by no dead idol but a living creature like a Lionthe Word in Pentecost, Ephesus, Smyrna and Pergamos. Satan rode forth on his white horse conquering a kingdom of his own, and to conquer Christ's kingdom. By the Ephesian Age he had persuaded some to leave their "first love," the Word, and by the Pergamean Age a multitude was convinced to supplant the sovereignty of the Holy Spirit by the doctrine of the Nicolaitanesa clerical hierarchy between God and men. At the First Nicaea Council in AD325 Satan organized the Roman Catholic church and by his popularity with the people he gained spiritual power and a triple crown. Under the Second Seal Satan mounted his red horse and gained political power by killing all who opposed his false teachings. The nadir of faith under the Second Seal produced the Dark Ages where the saints labored under the standard of the Ox-like living creature.
Under the Third Seal Satan rode a Dark Horse, signifying the ignorance gendered in the Dark Ages. He sold heavenly favors like forgiveness for future sins and salvation to superstitious Catholics. Under this Seal, God's attributes were symbolized by a living creature with the head of a man, signifying godly wisdom in the Bible scholars of the Reformation. The institutions that were established to continue the work of deceased leaders backslid under the leadership of men, fell prey to demon power, and became mother Rome's denominational harlot daughters"so close as would almost deceive the very elect".
The Fourth and last Seal of the Bride's Spiritual Redemption signifies Christ's attributes by a living creature with the head of an eagle, the symbol of God's prophets. Here Lucifer conflates all the diabolical evils of the previous powers into his pale horse and is finally cast out of heaven with his demons to become the incarnate beast power or last pope with authority to slay the world and destroy creation (Matthew 24:9-13; 16:25). The climax takes place under the Sixth Seal in an alliance between Rome and the Jews with a confederation of churches and the government of the United States that will establish a boycott and force the mark of the beast.
Under the Fourth Seal and between the Sixth and Seventh Vial the Bride recognizes three unclean spirits called Fascism, Nazism, and Communism come out of the mouth of the Dragon [Imperial Rome that "stood before the woman to devour her Child as soon as it was born" (Revelation 12:3-4)], and out of the mouth of the beast [of Papal Rome (Revelation 13:2)], and out of the mouth of the false prophet [or first pope (Revelation 13:2-11)]. These unclean spirits were present from the First Nicaea Council but they did not manifest in international politics until the Sixth Trumpet in Laodicea to bring natural persecution upon natural Israel in a revival of the ten nations of the old Roman Empire under Mussolini (Fascism), Hitler (Nazism) and Stalin (Communism). The Banksters' hidden hand was bringing "right" Hegelians into controlled conflict with "left" Hegelians to steal Palestine for Jewry and their planned global Hegemony. On the other hand, God is allowing these sinners to reestablish a modern Israel state in the land of the Covenant where He can redeem the Israelites and fulfill prophecy under the Seventh Trumpet and Sixth Seal (Romans 8:28).
Just as the Seven Seals are the mysteries revealed to the elect Gentiles in the end-time, the Seven Trumpets are seven mysteries that will be revealed to the 144,000 elect Israelites under the Sixth Seal. The revelations of the first Five Seals and the first Six Trumpets are largely past history. The Seventh Trumpet will mark the end of the Gentile Dispensation with the 'parousia' Coming of Christ the King to Israel as the Seventh Seal marked His second Coming to the Church.
The Fifth Trumpet culminated in World War I and the First Woe (Revelation 9:12) and the whole world went to war in 1914. Peace was restored by the Armistice of 1918 at the start of the Sixth Trumpet. The world cried, "Peace, peace," and set up the League of Nations, but there was no peace because it was planned this way, and within twenty years the Sixth Trumpet brought World War II and the Second Woe (Revelation 11:15).
Again they cried, "Peace, peace," and established the United Nations and there has been no peace since 1914. The Judaeo-Communist UN, like Communism, is the Plague of the Sixth Vial whereby those three spirits like frogs are gathering the world together in their "isms' to a place called Armageddon. Under the Fourth Seal in Matthew 24:8 Jesus described World War I as "The beginning of sorrows." The Fourth Seal is the Eagle Age, the completion of the Body of Christ and cusp of Satan's one world church government. There will be no peace until Jesus and the glorified saints step out on the ashes of the wicked for the Millennium.
In a letter of November 2, 1917, the Balfour Declaration expressed British approval of Zionism and paved the way for the establishment of an Israeli State in Palestine. When General Allenby entered Jerusalem on December 9, the city surrendered without a shot, and it was said that as word passed down the Turkish lines, "Allenby's coming" became "Allah's coming".
Revelation 7:1-3: "And after these things [the revelation of the Sixth, or Judgment Seal to John who represents Christ's end-time Bride], . . . (your name here) . . . saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, so that the wind [war and strife] should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. And I saw another Angel ascending from the east, [the S_O_N rising as "the Sun of righteousness"] having the Seal of the living God: and He cried with a loud Voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea. Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads".
Thus World War I ended at 11:00 a.m. on November 11, 1918, as mysteriously as Jerusalem had surrendered one year previously. To this day, no one knows who ordered the cease-fire and the signing of the Armistice but it was prophesied Christ would restrain the four judgment angels to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea until the third part of man, Shem's descendants, are sealed by the Spirit (Revelation 7:4-8).
The Sixth Trumpet sounded in 1918 (Revelation 9:13-15) after Jewry betrayed victorious Germany and bribed failing Britain by offering to spend the lives of American servicemen and United States treasure in exchange for the Balfour Agreement to steal Arab and Hebrew land in Palestine. Germany agreed to armistice without reparations and Kaiser (i.e. Caesar) Wilhelm II abdicated as insisted by President Wilson whom Jewry blackmailed over his adultery. Once German troops demobbed, the Allies claimed victory and sued Germany for an immense fortune, initially 269 billion gold marks, around 96,000 tons of gold bullion. Jewry then invaded from Russia, set up the Weimar Republic then turned the nation into a bordello; hyperinflation was the instrument whereby German wealth was transferred to the Jewish "insurgents" who were granted credit in US dollars by the International Banksters to purchase German assets valued in worthless Marks. The injustice of the Armistice and understandable grievances over the treachery of Jewish fellow citizens, and particularly their International banksters who planned this outcome in the nineteenth century in their pursuit of global hegemony using Jews as pawns (exemplified by the bloody Judaeo-Communist takeover of Russia in 1917 and their callous regard for them during World War II) "loosed the four angels." The Protocols are laid out step by step in black and white, and if you review the past hundred and fifty years of history you will agree with Henry Ford, "They have fitted the world situation up to this time. They fit it now"
Without doubt one of the greatest men of the twentieth century, Adolf Hitler was wise to what Schopenhauer and Martin Luther called "The Jews and their Lies." Non-religious Jews monopolized leading positions in the professions, banking, media, law, entertainment, and to a very large extent in Government departments. Wholesale rapine on top of impossible demands for reparations and the abhorrent immorality of Jewry's corrupt and debauched Weimar regime ensured the next step in their planóWorld War II. Adolf Hitler and the National Socialists rose up in moral outrage and patriotic rebellion, defeating the Jewish invaders at the polls. He vowed to restore the honour and prosperity of Germany and escape the usury of the International Banksters. After his appointment as chancellor, World Jewry declared war and on March 24, 1933, a boycott on German exports. Hitler created full employment, raising Germany to the highest standard of living while the world suffered the bankster-engineered Great Depression.
Jewry conquered England in 1688 which it rules from the sovereign mile square city of London. The British Empire was in reality the Empire of the City of London: the United States, Canada, Australia, etc., remain colonies "and knoweth it not." Germany on the other hand, is Roman. Hitler's Germany was the Third Reich or Empire. The first was the Holy Roman Empire; the second was the German Empire that lasted from 1871 to 1918. The Holy Roman Empire was the medieval state that embraced most of central Europe and Italy under the rule of the German kings from 962 to 1806. It was considered to be a restoration and continuation of the ancient Roman Empire, although in fact it had little in common with its predecessor. Earlier, the Frankish king Charlemagne had revived the same name. His Roman Empire lasted from 800 to 925. In 962, Otto I of Germany and Pope John XII cooperated in a second revival. Threatened in his possession of the Papal States by Berengar II, king of Italy, John begged Otto to come to his aid. Otto did so, and the Pope solemnly crowned him Emperor of the Romans as a reward. From this time, the German kings claimed the right to rule the empire.
Hitler said, "I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so" (Adolf Hitler, by John Toland [Pulitzer Prize winner], New York: Anchor Publishing, 1992, p. 507). "The union of the Evangelical Church in a single Church for the whole Reich, the Concordat with the Catholic Church, these are but milestones on the road which leads to the establishment of a useful relation and a useful co-operation between the Reich and the two Confessions" (Adolf Hitler, in his New Year Message, January 1, 1934; from Norman H. Baynes, ed., The Speeches of Adolf Hitler, April 1922-August 1939 Vol. 1. Oxford University Press, 1942, p. 382).
"In the first place it is Christians and not international atheists who now stand at the head of Germany. I do not merely talk of Christianity, no, I also profess that I will never ally myself with the parties which destroy Christianity. If many wish today to take threatened Christianity under their protection, where, I would ask, was Christianity for them in these fourteen years [of the Weimar Republic] when they went arm in arm with atheism? No, never and at no time was greater internal damage done to Christianity than in these fourteen years when a party theoretically Christian sat with those who denied God in one and the same Government" (Adolf Hitler, in a speech delivered at Stuttgart, February 15, 1933; ibid, p. 240).
Brother Branham said, "By God's help, and with the book of history, I can prove to you that we're living at the Seventh Trumpet, for the Seventh Plague, and the Seventh Seal to be opened, and the Seventh Vial to be poured out" (The Seven Church Ages, p. 4:29). And "the book of history" enables us to gain a clear picture of Brother Branham's teaching on the Sixth Trumpet.
Speaking of the 200,000,000 horsemen he said, "It was spiritual horses, spiritual devils, chargers, that had been bound in Euphrates all these years, supernatural devils. What was it? The old Roman Empire being revived, the persecution of the Jews. And they had been bound for nearly two thousand years at the river Euphrates, can't cross to the promise, a religious sect that was trying to get to the other side. Euphrates, you know, come through Eden. But they were bound there, two hundred thousand [thousand] devils of persecution". . . bound there by what? The ecclesiastical powers, which Rome, pagan Rome become papal Rome, and was bound there in its traditions of Christian, what part of Christian and superstitions it had of Rome, putting together all these worship of women, and all these other kind of stuff, and Christmas days, and holidays, and holy days and things. It's been bound by that tradition that it cannot let loose because it's against Christian principles. Still the same ungodly, pagan spirit . . . And that spirit caught into the nations of the world, according to the prophecies of Ezekiel, and the rest of them. And they were loosed upon the Jew, who knowed nothing of the [Holy] Spirit" (The Feast of the Trumpets, p. 21:160, 163).
Under the Trumpet judgments the Roman empire which in its papal incarnation rules in ALL nations, loosed these demons on the self-styled Jews and Israelites who being blinded to Christian faith by the demonic Babylonian Talmud cannot call on the Holy Spirit for defence. And Papal Rome herself, bound by pagan traditions and religious superstitions has no call upon the Holy Spirit. Prior to George I, George II, Clinton and Obama, Rome could not cross the Euphrates to persecute Israelites living safely in the Muslim lands of the ancient Assyrian and Babylonian empires, and prior to the close of the Gentile dispensation the "religious sect" dare not cross the Euphrates to the land of the Covenant "for fear of the Jews".
It has taken centuries longer than anticipated, but Rome's child Islam is finally moving into position to fulfill its original objective which is to conquer Judea and restore Jerusalem to Rome (The Mark of the Beast).
Rome is the enemy of natural and also Spiritual Israel (Christians), while the self-styled Jews of Cain's race are Israel's sworn enemy and at enmity with Adam's race (Genesis 3:15; 27:39-41; Matthew 23:33-36). It was the lukewarm spirit of Laodicea that eased the grip of Roman creed and superstition and the dictators, Mussolini, Hitler and Stalin, and the City's Churchill and Roosevelt, and loosed "the four angels." Five of the seven consecutive visions God showed Brother Branham in 1933 have come to pass "and look like that sixth thing [totalitarian one world government under a Devil-incarnate pope] is moving right up. . . "
"Now the ecclesiastical realm has been opened from the natural revival of the old pagan Rome, went forth on those Jews, which has always been their enemy (the lion with teeth and everything, that stomped down and broke out the people, Rome [Daniel 7:7, 23]), always been God's enemy. And it was turned loose in the same spirit by the dictators of the world, because the religious system was still holding; now it's been loosed. . . In the cunningness, as He said, he'd come in like flatteries [Daniel 11:21, 23, 34]. And what has he done? He's bringing the Protestant ecumenical council of the world churches, the spirit of antichrist, upon both of them, bringing them to the slaughter, just like they did the other in a hour to call the Bride. How? Loosed in the ecclesiastical church, spirit. Loosed upon what? Not upon the denominations, upon the Bride. But here you'd get it; the Bride will not go through that time. The Bible says not. The [non-elect] church will, but not the Bride. Can't you see? Ministers, can't you see that, brethren (ibid. p. 22:170-174, 182-183)?
The Bride of Christ will be translated, and the persecution will fall on the 144,000, who must be killed like their brethren under the Fifth Seal. As national force put Israel in the Homeland, national force will put the church in the World Council of Churches as the mark of the beast is forced by legislation like Australia's Racial Vilification and Anti-Discrimination Acts which outlaw the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Spirit that inspired the Church Age Messengers of the Reformation, Martin Luther, John Wesley, and William Branham with their Messages of grace also pours out the Vials of Christ's jealousy on the make-believer and un-believer that claim to be His Wife yet are unfaithful to His Word, refusing their husband like Queen Vashti. As three special angels under the Fourth Seal, the Spirit revived their Messages of grace in the Pentecostal revival as His standard and defense against the Plagues of their Vials of wrath.
Revelation 14:6-12: "And I saw another angel flying in mid-heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a great voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters." This was Martin Luther's Message of "Justification by grace through faith".
"And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication." This was John Wesley's Message of "Sanctification".
"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receives the mark of his name." That is the ministry of Brother Branham warning men to come out of Babylon to escape the mark of the beast.
Revelation 14:12-13 is Armageddon. The Church has long been translated. "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a Voice from heaven saying, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them".
The third angel's Message is the fullness of the Gospel of the Kingdom"the revelation of all saints on the golden altar" plus the "incense" of the seven thunders which finished the mystery of God makes the prayers [or revelation] of the Bride of all Ages "one" with God (Revelation 8:3; 10:8-11). The Three Woes followed these last three Messages.
Revelation 8:13: "And I beheld, and heard an eagle flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the Earth by reason of the other voices of the Trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound"!
The living creature with the head of an Eagle flying in mid-heaven places this warning under the Fourth Seal. The Baptism of the Holy Ghost had been restored, and the church world was no longer ignorant of the power of God's Word.
The Woes come upon all the "inhabiters of the earth"Hebrew and Gentile. They are birth pains for renewal that come upon earth in three World Wars.
When the church failed to move forward with the Spirit in Laodicea, her religious systems were unable to constrain evil, for men no longer feared the church, respected God's Word or even upheld creeds and traditions. The unbelief of man-made systems put God without the churches when they rejected the revelation of the Seven Seals which is the revelation of Jesus Christ and was His second Coming. Now they are uniting against Christ's Bride, driving her without the gate as they drove out the Son of man (Revelation 3:20).
Revelation 16:12-14: "And the sixth angel poured out his Vial upon the great river Euphrates; and its water was dried up, that the way of the "kings of the East" might be prepared".
Euphrates ran through Babylon, its life-giving flow sustained her citizens, cleansed the city, and was her defense. This beautiful city was built by Nebuchadnezzar in imitation of the New Jerusalem with Euphrates impersonating the River of Life, which types the Holy Spirit, flowing from the belly of Christ and His Bride (the New Jerusalem).
In John 4:13-14: "Jesus told the prostitute at the well, Whosoever drinks of this water shall thirst again: but whosoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst; but the water that I shall give him will be in him a well of water springing up to eternal Life."
And on the eighth day of the Feast of Tabernacles He said, "If any man thirst, let him come to Me, and drink. He who believes on Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water" (John 7:37-38).
Revelation 22:17, "The Spirit and the Bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of Life freely".
Babylon was defeated by "kings of the east" when the Medo-Persians diverted the Euphrates, marched along its dry river bed and under the city walls while her citizens reveled in drunken orgy (Daniel 5:28; Isaiah 41:2). Jesus calls Rome, "Mystery, Babylon the great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth." Rome divided between east and west, as signified by the two legs of the image of Nebuchadnezzar's dream. Those five eastern and five western states are now reuniting in the European Union. Rome's historic enemy has been the self-styled Mongol Jew and his relations who invaded "from the east." Judaeo-Communism stalks Rome; Brother Branham said, "The Esau church, she's come to her end. What she doing? Heading up in the federation of churches, which will finally join with Romanism to fight Communism. Pope John is calling for all the churches to come back, and they will. And they'll unite themselves together; just exactly what THUS SAITH THE LORD" (Hearing, Recognizing, Acting on the Word of God, p. 29:215).
Henry L. Mencken, American editor and critic wisely observed, "The English would never have contrived World War II if they had not been sure of Roosevelt's help . . . what is the net result? First, the Asiatic barbarians, held at bay since 1683, have been let loose in Western Europe. . ." (H.L. Mencken, Life Magazine, August 5th, 1946, p. 46; Revelation 16:12).
The Sixth Vial was poured out upon Rome and her harlot daughters who rejected Wesley's Message: "Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made ALL nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication" (Revelation 14:8; 18:3). It was poured on denominational churches led by "fallen angels"intellectual men hybrid by knowledge, not born of the Word, for instead of the Word or "River of Life," Death by creed and dogma flowed from Rome. The Sixth Vial "dried up the water" of what little Spirit flowed from Rome "that the way of the kings of the east," Rome's enemies, "might be prepared".
Brother Branham said, "I'll prove to you that Communism is working straight in the hands of Almighty God to destroy the Roman. . . And remember, I say this as God's prophet: The Russian Empire will drop an atomic bomb of some sort on the Vatican City and destroy it in one hour. THUS SAITH THE LORD. And the Bible said that God took them cruel-hearted men and put them in His hands, and they were instruments in His hands to fulfill His will, and to bring back to her exactly what she had coming to her" (The Mark of the Beast, p. 18:134).
Who are these "kings of the East" but the Khazars Judaeo-Communism and the Eastern Bloc?
"Nations are breaking, for the time now that we see that they're supposed to do this. We're in the process of national disturbance. We see the nations are breaking relationship. Year by year, we find this nation being swallowed up in Communism; this one being swallowed up in Communism. And right here in our own nation, it's honeycombed with Communism, and it will take over." [Common sense says that bureaucrats, politicians and others with dual citizenship are a security risk and can swear fifty percent loyalty at mostEd]!
"See, it'll do it, no way of stopping it. Why? The same reason that you couldn't stop Titus. The people have rejected God and His Word. Yes, sir, so they're going to do it, and we see it right in process. . . They're coming to the battle of Armageddon . . . And they're uniting for that right now. That's why we got the UN and everything we have. The Western World's uniting against the Eastern World, Communism and so forth; it's all uniting together. The churches are uniting together. Everything seems to be uniting. . . Also . . . out here in the world, earthquakes in divers places. . ." (Uniting Time and Sign, p. 20:87-89).
As the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, the Son of man rose in the east, and shone upon Jerusalem in the morning offering of Gospel Light. Jesus said, "As Lightning comes out of the east and shines to the west; so shall also the Coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the Carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together" (Matthew 24:27-28; 17:11). The same Word-Light which shone in the morning will be restored in the evening time upon the western people (Zechariah 14:7 and Malachi 4:5-6).
The "kings of the east" are a group in spiritual darkness. When Cain left the Presence of God, he settled east, away from the Light (Genesis 4:16). In this Plague the boundary between the civilized and the barbaric world is abolished by the political philosophies of Fascism, Nazism swallowed up into Communism and propagated by Asiatic Eastern Europeans, who like the Hun and Mongol trains, sweep away with them to the battle against God all unsealed men and powers on their road.
Jesus called the spirit of Communism "Laodicea," which means "people's rights." Its proponents have abolished the distinctions of religions, social station, culture, race, nationality, gender and age, returning the world to a Babylon of confusion without respect of persons other than a super-wealthy elite who control the levers of power, true knowledge, and of course guns.
Unthinking people point to Ishmael and his sons, and to Abraham's sons by Keturah (Genesis 16:12; 25:6) as the "kings of the east," as these "sons of the concubines" as they were called (Genesis 25:6; I Chronicles 3:9) and their posterity famous for their number were termed "the children of the east" (Genesis 17:20; Judges 6:3). They are the Arab peoples who are Moslems in spiritual darkness, being gathered to the battle of that great day of God Almighty, but they are innocent pawns manipulated for gain by the British and American colonies of the Empire of the City of London because Abraham prophesied they will never be able to reach consensus among themselves (Genesis 16:12).
It cannot be said that the Ottomans or Muslim peoples masterminded either World War. Like English, Germans, Italians and Americans, they were mere cannon fodder for the planners and financiers of the protagonists.
"The kings of the east" are Israel's traditional enemies Moses was directed to utterly destroy whenever they were found in the Promised Land, but whom Israel has affiliated from the time of Joshua (Joshua 9; Genesis 27:39-41). "The Communist Party has been outlawed in the Middle East countries except Israel [and South Yemen]" (Alfred Lilienthal, Human Events). They rule Russia and will attack Jerusalem after the earthquakes at the Seventh Trumpet (Isaiah 11:11-16: Daniel 11:44). The Sixth Vial was poured out upon nominal Christians, to separate the false church from the foolish virgin. Once the Holy Spirit of Mystery Babylon's "Euphrates" had dried up, the way of "the kings of the east" was prepared: intellectual reasoning, imagination and affection, which Satan can manipulate in the absence of faith in men's heart. Over the past century, as literacy and free education became universal, liberal thinkers and philosophers without faith exposed the fallacy of Roman creed and Protestant myth which was also, for the most part, without faith, and introduced their false religions of atheism, humanism and Communism.
Having a soul, men must worship something, but the answer they sought would not be found in hollow forms of godliness without faith, so they immersed themselves in eastern mysteries, experimented with meditation, drugs and excess, formed new religious amalgams, and forsook knowledge of Jesus whom they only knew second-hand, not by personal encounter. And as people seeking in the wrong place, gave up looking for God, "though He is not far from every one of us" (Acts 17:27); Satan planted seeds of reasoning in their heads where kings from the dark side of the earth set up their thrones.
God can only influence those who yield to His Word by the obedience of faith, and Satan can only influence those who yield to his suggestions by intellectual reasoning contrary to God's Word. All battles are first and foremost spiritual. The first blows come by words, and words carry spirits because words are the expressed thoughts of the spirit ruling a man. The "kings of the east" have invaded the western, once Christian world spiritually, winning the battle of the mind before spilling blood.
Satan has progressively destroyed the structure and fabric of western society, until today most men have no defense, for without the Absolute they have no faith. "As it was in the days of Noah" our nations have embraced the peoples and customs from the east as Jesus foretold (Matthew 24:37-41; Genesis 6:1-4). This spiritual perversion has spilled into unnatural unions through intermarriage, foreign aid, the UN and NWO. But Daniel said, east and west will not cleave together (Daniel 2:40-45), and as we are moving rapidly toward one world government there will be no peace until the Millennium. The United States and Russia have been pretty much united behind the scenes since FDR, as Charlotte Iserbyt's article and many studies in the Conspiracy Scholar's Nook area of the Church Website report.
"In solemn truth, do not seven persons share most of the responsibility for establishing the Communist grip on the world? Are not the seven: (1) Marx, the founder of violent Communism; (2) Engels, the promoter of Marx; (3, 4, 5) Trotsky, Lenin, and Stalin; (6) Franklin D. Roosevelt, who rescued the tottering Communist empire by recognition (1933), by the resultant financial support, by his refusal to proceed against Communists in the United States, and by the provisions of the Yalta Conference; and (7) Harry S. Truman, who agreed at Potsdam to the destruction of Germany and thereafter followed the Franklin Roosevelt policy of refusing to act against Communists in the United Statesthe one strong nation which remains as a possible obstacle to Communist world power?"
"In spite of the consolidation of Stalin's position in Russia by Franklin Roosevelt and by Stalin's "liquidation" of millions of anti-Communists in Russia after Roosevelt's recognition, the Soviet Union in 1937 was stymied in its announced program of world conquest by two road-blocks: Japan in the East and Germany in the West? These countries . . . were small for great powers, and since their main fears were of the enormous, hostile, and nearby Soviet Union, they did not constitute an actual danger to the United States. The men around Roosevelt, many of them later around Truman, not merely defeated but destroyed the two road-blocks against the spread of Stalinist Communism!" (John Beaty, Iron Curtain Over America, p. 187).
Brother Branham was speaking the truth when he identified the Plague under the Sixth Vial as Communism? So was Chief Rabbi of the United States, Stephen S. Wise when he said, "Some call it Marxism, I call it Judaism"?
Let's take a closer look at this uniting time sign: "three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the Dragon [Imperial Rome that "stood before the woman to devour her Child as soon as it was born" (Revelation 12:3-4)], and out of the mouth of the beast [of Papal Rome (Revelation 13:2)], and out of the mouth of the false prophet [or first pope." Satan is transforming his kingdom from Babylon to Imperial Rome, to Papal Rome, to one totalitarian world government he will rule as incarnate pope.
The spirit that came out of the mouth of the Dragon of Imperial Rome (Revelation 12:3) was Fascism, which is any nationalist, totalitarian movement or government. Fascism's key features were absolute primacy of the State, with its power and growth the centre of life and history. It requires submission of the individual to the unified will of the people as expressed by the single party State, with strict regimentation of all aspects of national life and entire obedience to a usually charismatic leader, who embodies the State.
The United States, a peculiarly nationalistic country, is becoming a totalitarian fascist state. Her leader, George II has said, "Those who are not with us are against us." The United States is the image unto the beast of Imperial Rome.
Italian Fascism grew out of widespread disillusionment with ineffectual government, uninspired leadership and the chaotic economic conditions that beset Italy after World War I. Conditions that created a political atmosphere conducive to the glorification of authoritarian and especially military virtues. Human beings must worship something, and because the soul is a feminine attribute it will be led in submission, serving one spirit or the other.
This political movement governed Italy from 1922-1943; Germany from 1933-1945, Spain from 1939-1975, Japan, Yugoslavia and a few other countries at various times. Several countries embraced fascism between World War I and World War II. Some, such as Norway, Denmark, Great Britain, Belgium, and France, had large fascist movements. Others, such as Spain, Austria, Hungary, Rumania, Poland, and Finland, gained substantially fascist governments.
"Fascism may be an ugly word to many, but its stately emblem is apparently offensive to no one. The emblem of fascism, a pair of them, commands the wall above and behind the speaker's rostrum in the Chamber of the House of Representatives. They're called fasces, and I can think of no reason for them to be there other than to declare the fascistic nature of American republican democracy. A fasces is a Roman device. Actually, it originated with the ancient Etruscans, from whom the earliest Romans derived their [Babylonian] religious jurisprudence nearly three thousand years ago. It's an axe-head whose handle is a bundle of rods tightly strapped together by a red sinew. [The term "Axis Powers" derives from this ax]. It symbolizes the ordering of priestly functions into a single infallible sovereign, an autocrat who could require life and limb of his subjects. If the fasces is entwined with laurel, like the pair on the House wall, it signifies Caesarian military power. . ." (Tupper Saussy, Rulers of Evil, p. 3-6). The US is the image of the Roman beast and her alien Nobel Laureate War-Monger-in-Chief is Caesar.
This symbol, adopted by Mussolini in 1919, is incorporated in the Seal of the US Senate and it perfectly symbolizes the European Union in which the nations of Europe are subordinate to common laws decided and imposed by an unelected dictatorship in Brussels. Out of the mouth of the beast (Daniel 7:6-8; Revelation 13:1-3) of Papal Rome came the Third Reich of the Holy Roman Empire, Nazism or "National Socialism," which is the German form of Fascism. Also founded in 1919, it proclaimed itself the implacable enemy of liberalism, and stressed the subordination of the individual to the State.
Out of the mouth of the false prophet came Communism which always follows Romanism. Communism is "international socialism" or global governmenta devious device of the super-rich to produce a powerless, classless world of serfs without private ownership of the means of production, distribution or exchange, under a coercive totalitarian State, the unnatural fruit of social engineering wherein human intellect will produce Satan's Eden by science as attempted by Judaeo-Communist Russia in the genocide of 66 million Christians between 1915 and 1949, and 9 to 15 million ethnic Germans after World War II (Matthew 4:8-9).
As Brother Branham prophesied, Communism has swallowed up Fascism and Nazism, and the Hegelian two party sham democratic systems of our once Christian west are controlled by ideologically unassimilated aliens because we refused the grace of God. The Eastern World of Judaeo-Communism is uniting with the Western World or Holy Roman Empire, in a totalitarian NWO through the UN, to force the mark of the beast, thus gathering the world to Armageddon after Rome breaks hers covenant with Jewry, ending this artificial union of east and west in a fight to the death as prophesied in Daniel 2:40-45, 9:27 and Revelation 17:16-18.
Notice Revelation 16:16 says, "Three unclean spirits gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon" because "God has sent them strong delusion that they should believe the lie that they might all be damned who believed not the revealed Word but had pleasure in unrighteousness" (II Thessalonians 2:11-12). Like the Hebrews who entered the Temple and prayed whilst Titus laid siege to Jerusalem these nominally Christian people will imagine they are still in the Church Ages of grace and that Christ is still a Mediator. These souls are imprisoned in Hades while they live, for this is the Hebrew dispensation.
These loathsome and slimy creatures, which signify evil spirits, croak their propaganda and intrude themselves into every place to promote mischief and idolatry to all, looking back to the First Nicaea Council where Trinitarianism was introduced from paganism to counterfeit Christianity. Those demons are going forth to the world leaders today, enticing them to form alliances with their own enemies in APEC, AFTA, TPP, NAU/SPP, CER, EU and NAFTA, World Bank, IMF, etc., gathering them to the great battle. Churches too are uniting with their avowed enemies; east and west, pagans and nominal Christians.
Revelation 16:14, "For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles." The "miracles" are the uniting of "iron with clay," the "seed of men mingling themselves" with the seed of the Serpent, as it was in the days of Noah." This is confirmed by Revelation 13:14, "The image to the beast deceives all who dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had authority to do in the sight of the beast." The United States will gather all religions into a council under Rome, ostensibly to stop the power of communism, but which will eventually force the universal worship of a holy man, the pope, as Nebuchadnezzar enforced worship to an image of Daniel, "saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live." His deadly wound was healed at Nicaea in AD325 when Imperial Rome became Papal Rome.
Revelation 3:10, "Because you have kept the word of My patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth".
Brother Branham explained, "This temptation is exactly like the temptation in Eden. It will be a very inviting proposition held up in direct opposition to God's commanded Word, and yet from the standpoint of human reasoning it will be so very right, so enlightening and life-giving as to fool the world."
"Only the very elect will not be fooled. The temptation will come as follows. The ecumenical move that has started on what seems such a beautiful and blessed principle (fulfilling Christ's prayer that we all might be one) becomes so strong politically that she bears pressure upon the government to cause all to join with her either directly or through adherence to principles enacted into law so that no people will be recognized as actual churches unless under direct or indirect domination of this council. . . as this move becomes the "IMAGE ERECTED TO THE BEAST," the saints will be gone in the rapture. And this little delightful, winsome movement that started out in fellowship at Ephesus will become the monster of Satan that defiles and deceives the whole world. For the church system of the Roman Catholic and the Protestant in coming together will control the whole wealth of the world system and force the whole earth into its religious trap, or will kill them, by refusing them the privilege of buying and selling whereby they would make a living. This will be accomplished simply, for the harlot's daughters are all but gone back to her. In the meantime, 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. The Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance, and the harlot church will take over the whole world" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 312:3 314:1).
With no authority in heaven, Satan incarnates himself by deceit here on earth. The three horses of Revelation 6 finally coalesce in the pale horse to force the mark of the beast in the climax of the fourth or last Gentile world empire. We see this taking place in the United States Presidential policy of exporting murder, rape and pillage around the world and submitting her own citizens to tyrannical laws like the Patriot Acts and Homeland Security. This trinity of evil united in the pale horse on its ride to perdition will seek to destroy the Bride of Christ.
Likewise God is reproducing Himself in His people by three stages of One Spirit. Justification made a way for sanctification, and sanctification makes a way for the baptism with the Holy Ghost. Finally, the Word will have sovereignty in the flesh of His Bride and manifest the Sons of God (John 3:8; Restoration of the Bride Tree 76:1-2). His Fullness incarnates the end-time Bride by the Shout of the Message of Malachi 4, by the Voice of the Archangel, and manifests after the Seventh Trump.
In their third question the Disciples asked Jesus, "What will be the sign of the end of the ages or dispensations"? This was answered in Matthew 24:32-34 and fulfilled at midnight on May 14, 1948 when Israel was proclaimed a nation. As Gentiles we look to the parallel verse addressed to us in Luke 21:29-33, "Behold the fig tree [Israel], and all the trees [or Gentile nations]; when they come into bud, you see and know for yourselves that summer [and fruit harvest], is now near. So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God [and the first resurrection or harvest of souls] is near. With assurance I tell you, this generation shall not pass away, till all things take place. Heaven and earth will change: but My Words will by no means change".
God promised revival among the blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob through the ministry of two prophets. He also promised a revival among us Gentiles, and our revival has priority because He cannot deal with the Law-keepers and the Church at the same time. Israel had to be restored to the Land, and the Body of Christ must be finished before He can deal with Israel for they will be sealed into the Kingdom when they recognize the 'parousia' Coming of Jesus Christ with His Bride of all Ages (Revelation 19; Isaiah 66:8).
Brother Branham said that Israel was made a nation on May 6, 1947, after she raised her flag in Jerusalem, the day before the Angel of the Lord commissioned him to take a Message of healing and Spiritual revival to the world. Israel is God's timepiece. It may be later than you think, is God incarnate in you? (bb880418.htm) nl363.htm
