The Coming Starvation of South Africa
From the darkening tip of the continent comes news that under pressure from the Mbeki government, as well as terrorist strikes and murders, White South African farmers are selling their farms to Blacks. The government aims to give a third of white-owned land to the Blacks by 2014 and this programme is back on track. The aim is to settle subsistence farmers on the land for ideological reasons, rather than encourage viable agricultural enterprises.
When this has been done elsewhere on the Dark Continent production from farms has crashed. Starvation waits around the corner. . . Full story: alor.org
Comment: Revelation 6:8, "I beheld a pale horse: and the name of his rider was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given to them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
Foolish men who sold their country under communism are now bent on cruel depopulation and national enslavement to the International Banksters by a program called "Liberty" in Newspeak!
Mystery of Israel's Secret Uranium Bomb
October 30, 3006 Did Israel use a secret new uranium-based weapon in southern Lebanon this summer in the 34-day assault that cost more than 1,300 Lebanese lives, most of them civilians? . . .
Scientific evidence gathered from at least two bomb craters in Khiam and At-Tiri, the scene of fierce fighting between Hizbollah guerrillas and Israeli troops last July and August suggests that uranium-based munitions may now also be included in Israel's weapons inventoryand were used against targets in Lebanon . . .
Israel has a poor reputation for telling the truth about its use of weapons in Lebanon. In 1982, it denied using phosphorous munitions on civilian areasuntil journalists discovered dying and dead civilians whose wounds caught fire when exposed to air. Full story: countercurrents.org
Comment: The Australian Jewish News, October 27, 2006 "Israel admits using phosphorous": "Israel has reportedly confirmed that it used white phosphorous bombs during the Lebanon war." So can we expect that in fourteen years time Israel will admit using a "secret new uranium" weapon in the latest attack on Lebanon?
Ushering in the Millennium
Scripture is being acted-out on the world stage yet few in the audience of six billion have eyes to see and hearts that can discern the self-righteous religious spirit that possessed the political leaders of the iniquitous "coalition of the willing" to invade sovereign nations on the basis of patent lies, and kill defenceless innocents. This "strong delusion was sent by God" on the children of Antichrist imprisoned in the world church system to cause all who have disbelieved the truth in order that they may take pleasure in unrighteousness to be judged at Armageddon (II Thessalonians 2:11-12; Revelation 16:16).
God would be unjust to condemn the world without revealing His righteousness as the way to escape judgment. Joel 2:28 foretold that in the tribulation of the "last days," which is the Messianic Age of redemption and completion that runs from Pentecost to the consummation, God would "pour out His Spirit upon all flesh." God pours out His Spirit in Word form by the foolishness of preaching whereby men become one in faith with Him, fulfilling Jesus' prayer in Gethsemane (John 17:9, 17-26). Jesus said, "This good news of the Kingdom of God shall be preached in all the world for a witness to all Gentiles; and then shall the end come" (Matthew 24:14). So "the last days" is a period of 2,000 years.
He first revealed His will to Israel, but Israel refused His Word as foretold in the parable of Matthew 21:33-46, beating and killing His prophets who brought correction and preached repentance. But when they slew His Son the Kingdom of God was taken from them and given to Christ's Gentile Bride. Since then the good news has been preached to the Gentiles, yet soon they too will end in apostasy (Romans 11:32; II Thessalonians 2:1-3). Their lack of discernment is illustrated by their coalition of the willing sinners engaged in the slaughter of the Jews' enemies, the true heirs of the Patriarchs of Israel exiled in the former dominions of ancient Assyria (Genesis 27:40-41; Isaiah 11:11).
The end of the wheat season or Gentile dispensation is nigh. The Message of Brother Branham, the angel to the Seventh Church Age, has "restored all things spoken by the mouth of all God's holy prophets since the world began" (Acts 3:21). He gathered the loose ends of PART-Word delivered by the previous six angels, finished their mysteries and joined them in the seamless unity of the faith by the revelation of the Seventh Seal, which is the seven thunders of Revelation 10:3. This brought back "that which is perfect": Christ, the fullness of the Word (Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:7). Christ's end-time Bride now rests in the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the Pentecostal feast, ripening to original Seed in the Son-Light of the fullness of the Word "to judge and make war" with the spirit of Antichrist by the spoken Word in the manifestation of the Sons of God that will produce faith for translation grace (Romans 8:17-39; I Thessalonians 4:14-17; I Corinthians 15:46-57).
The threefold process of the first resurrection commenced with Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming (I Thessalonians 4:16; I Corinthians 15:23). "Then," explained Paul, "comes the end-purpose of God," which is to "put down all rule and authority and power" contrary to God by the omnipotence of His immutable Word whereby His laws in nature will overcome manmade laws of philosophy and science so-called to restore equilibrium to the cosmos following the consummation of all life. It was nuclear war in the days of Noah that threw earth off its axis and away from the sun, causing precipitation of the firmament. This in conjunction with artesian water released from earth's broken crust produced the Great Flood. Jesus said this would repeat in the days of His second or 'parousia' Coming (Matthew 24:37). This time earth will be thrown toward the sun, causing the oceans to explode, sending flames thousands of miles into space and rupturing earth's mantle so that fresh lava covers its surface erasing all evidence of man's activities (II Peter 3:1-13).
Paul goes on to explain how Christ shall reign throughout the Millennium and bring judgment unto justice at the Great White Throne. Then, when even death has been destroyed in the lake of Fire along with Satan and his demons, "the Son Himself shall also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all" (I Corinthians 15:24-28; Revelation 20:11-15). Heavens and earth will be renewed by this baptism with the Holy Ghost and fire and cleansed of supernatural evil for Christ and His Bride to return with the saints of all Ages to rule the saved throughout eternity (Revelation 21-22).
"Having made known to us in all His wisdom and insight the secret of His end-purpose which He proposed in Christ (the mystery of the seven thunders), a plan to be brought to completion in the dispensation of the fullness of times, to unite us all together in Christ from wherever we arein heaven or on earthto be with Him forever. In Christ we too were made God's heritage, as foreordained according to the purpose of He who accomplishes all things in agreement with the design of His own will: that we who first hoped in Christ have been destined to live for the praise of His glory." Paul proceeds to explain how "the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him" will imbue us with the resurrection power that raised Christ from the dead, "and put all things under His feet" (Ephesians 1:9-11).
"The time of the end" (Daniel 12:4, 9; I Corinthians 15:24; Revelation 10:4), fiftieth day, holy convocation and rapture all describe the transition period from man's day to the day of the Lord and the Millennium in which the Kingdom is restored from Edomite suzerainty to Israelite sovereignty. The actual "end" will be the physical "restoration of all things" as they existed before the Fall in the eternal eighth day of a renewed heavens and renewed earth. However, time will continue for over a thousand years while Christ "puts down all rule and authority and power" contrary to God's unchanging Word (I Corinthians 15:23-28).
This transition period commenced with the Coming of Christ "as a thief in the night" at the close of the Laodicean Church Age. The revelation of the Seven Seals in March, 1963, brought Christ back to earth in WORD form (Matthew 23:22-28; I Corinthians 13:10; I Thessalonians 4:14-17; 5:2; Jude 14-15; Revelation 10:1-7) to incarnate and bring the temple of His end-time Bride under pre-eminence to the Word for the manifestation of the Sons of God and our translation.
Once the Wheat Bride is harvested and has been gathered Home for the Wedding Supper of the Lamb, God will anoint the two Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4, Matthew 24:31 and Revelation 11 to gather and "subdue unto Him" 144,000 elect blood Israelites for their day of atonement by the revelation or feast of the Seven Trumpet mysteries. Their season of harvest described in Revelation 14 is typed by the Feast of Tabernacles is when the fruit of all the trees is gathered.
The fig tree will bear in the latter half of Daniel's Seventieth Week after Rome breaks her covenant with the International banksters, martyrs Israel's prophets and forces the mark of the beast. In this she will be assisted by her (once) Protestant daughter churches, her image in the spiritual realm, the United States of America, the image of Rome in the political realm, and doubtless the coalition of the willing apostate colonies of the empire of the City of London. Rome and the United States are represented in Revelation 13 as two brutal, venomous and untamable wild beasts.
Revelation 14:1-5 portrays 144,000 elect Israelites already redeemed by the revelation of Justification by grace through faith that was restored to us Gentiles by the angel Martin Luther (Revelation 14:6-7), Sanctification by the blood restored by the angel John Wesley (Revelation 14:8), and the true baptism with the Holy Ghost as a revelation of the present truth rather than a sensation restored by William Branham, the angel to the seventh Church Age, warning them not to receive Catholic dogma or do Rome's bidding and assuring them that although they must surrender their lives in order to maintain their testimony, "their works will follow them" (Revelation 14:9-20; 6:11; Matthew 27:25).
Revelation 15:2-4 is in parenthesis as it explains what takes place in Revelation 14. The sea of glass in which the sacrifice was washed before it was inspected and presented to the Lord was the brazen laver made of the copper looking glasses of the Israelite women. In Revelation 4:6 the sea within the laver was clear as crystal because Laodicea having ended, the Church Age saints have all been redeemed. Here the sea is mingled with Fire and the 144,000, having been baptized with the Holy Ghost and with Fire are passing over the sea of brass in martyrdom as foretold in Revelation 6:11 and described in Revelation 14, "having gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the other side [or shore] of the sea of glass, having the harps of God," singing songs of victory and deliverance like their forefathers who crossed victorious through the Red Sea (I Corinthians 10:1-2).
"And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are your works, Lord God Omnipotent; just and true are Your ways, O King of the nations (Ezekiel 21:25-27; Galatians 3:28-29). Which of Your enemies shall not fear You (Exodus 15:14-16), O Lord, and glorify Your Name? for You alone are holy: for all Gentiles will come and worship before You (Jeremiah 16:19); for the righteousness of Your judgments is clearly understood" and vindicated by the revelation of Israel's Seven Trumpet Judgments and the "investigation judgments" of the Seven Vials by which You distinguished the foolish virgin from the false church.
As Brother Branham explains, "Now, we find out also in this that the Sixth Seal now being opened, it was for a threefold purpose. Now, here was the purposes: The first thing was that the sleeping virgins had to go through the tribulation period for purification. She had to be purged of her sins of unbelief . . ."
(The non-elect un-believing and make-believing church members of each Church Age were made to drink the curse of the vial in the antitype of Israel's ordeal of Jealousy (Numbers 5:11-31) as explained in Revelation 15:1, 6 16:21. The foolish virgin are justified and sanctified but they are not born-again, perhaps because they were slothful in "making their calling and election sure," or perhaps they were never presented with the revelation of the Message for their day because their pastor was not born-again, or being baptized into the Pentecostal part of the Body he owned the letter but not the Spirit of the end-time Message, or because we did not testify to them Ed).
"Now, she's not the Bride, but it's the church, the pure people that didn't have the opportunity, maybe, to receive the message, or in some way that they were blinded by these false prophets, and they didn't get a chance, and yet they're really sincere in heart, and God knows their heart, and here they're purged during this time."
"You notice that another purging time; that's for Israel when she gathers. That's the second fold. God purges Israel in the tribulation period. Out of the millions that'll gather there, there'll be a selected one hundred and forty-four thousand, and they will be purged also. God's purging Israel.
(Israel will be born-again under the judgment of the Seventh Trumpet during the time of the great tribulation, also known as "Jacob's trouble" (Jeremiah 30:1-10; Isaiah 66:8). The 144,000 will then be hunted down like dogs and martyred, every one of them, by the apostate church and Jews who have taken the mark of the beast (Revelation 6:11; 14:12-20).
Under the Fifth Seal (Revelation 6:9-11), which runs from Calvary to the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet, we find Israelites under the blood of the altar of sacrifice whose names are on the Book of Life. Their type is our foolish virgin, they lived truly faithful to all the Word they knew and died in martyrdom for the testimony of Moses. These will be granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment because in the providence of God they have been blinded by their rabbis for the sake of us Gentiles Ed).
"Notice, the whole earth is to be purged. There will be such a thing that the moon, stars, and all nature will be purged. You see what it is? The earth is renewing herself, being purged, getting ready for the millennium. The millennium's coming up. And see, everything that's got any filth in it is to be purged during the Sixth Seal."
"Now, now, do you notice on the opening of this Seventh Seal, it's also in a threefold mystery. This one I will speak and have spoke, that it is the mystery of the seven thunders. The seven thunders in heaven will unfold this mystery. It'll be right at the coming of Christ, because Christ said no one knew when He would return" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 575:1-5).
The threefold mystery of opening of the Seventh Seal is the descent of Jesus and the New Testament saints in WORD form in the "shout" of the Message in Revelation 10:1-7, which is the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6 that bestirred the wise and foolish virgin from their denominational slumber, and called them out from Rome and her once Protestant daughter churches into "the wilderness" (Revelation 18:4).
Revelation 19:1-16 reports Israel's revelation of Christ's parousia. In the first four verses our wedding guests, the Hebrew saints already in heaven bless the Lord's Presence with their brethren on earth, rejoicing with praise and thanksgiving for the destruction of the accursed harlot church: "After these things (the Woes, Trumpets, Seals and Vials of God's wrath), I heard as a great voice of a multitude in heaven, saying, Hallelujah; The Salvation, and the glory, and the power of our God: for true and just are His judgments: for He judged the great harlot, that corrupted the earth with her fornication, and avenged the blood of His servants at her hand (by the nuclear destruction of Rome in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth week. The first judgment on Mystery Babylon and her harlot daughters in the hypocritical disguise of Christ's church (Revelation 18:5-20) is to be followed by judgment on the beast and the false prophet (Revelation 19:17-21). Not until the traditions of nicolaitanism and sectarian Balaamism of institutionalized antichristianity are destroyed can the true Church appear to Israel as a virgin without spot or blemish as His Bride). And a second time they said, Hallelujah. And her smoke ascends forever and ever."
(Hallelujah is Hebrew meaning, "Praise JAH" the self existent One Who Is, NOT Jehovah, which means "He who will be, is, and was." Jah implies His PRESENCE now, and is found first in the Psalm 104:35 on the destruction of the ungodly. Israel, especially, will join in the Hallelujah, when "her warfare is accomplished" and her foe destroyed).
"And the twenty four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God who sits on the throne, saying, Amen; Hallelujah."
In recognizing the parousia of Messiah, Israel must also recognize His wife, for through the invisible marriage union the two are one Spirit in whom God will be worshipped throughout eternity (I Corinthians 6:17). Prior to the parousia of their King and His Queen, Israel saw only her externalized false image, the Great Harlot, for the true church, her simple, retired existence heretofore concealed by the gaudy and ostentatious Harlot, was invisible.
Brother Branham typed her as the Cinderella-like orphan cousin of several ugly prepossessing denominational sisters on an Armour and Swift ranch. Her denominational mother and her father, Organization, were both dead, and she was made to wear hand-me-downs and do the dirty work, like washing the dishes and cleaning house. One week they were to entertain the Son of the Owner of the cattle on a thousand hills. He was looking for a wife, so her denominational cousins painted their faces and dressed up like tarts. She kept out of sight doing the kitchen work in her ragged dress, but He noticed and saw in her the character He sought in a wife.
In about four year's time when Israel is born in one day, that holy nation will discern their Queen by faith, not by sight, in the character of Christ's Bride contrasted with the vulgarity that is the world church system, and praise the Lord. Israel's parousia will "confirm the prophetic vision, and anoint the most Holy," New Jerusalem, the Bride of Christ, with joy.
In the following six verses, the Hebrew saints already in heaven bless the Bride, the Lamb's wife who has clothed Herself as His glory in the righteousness of the Lamb: "And a voice came forth from the throne, saying, Give praise to our God, all His servants, those that fear Him, both the small and the great. And I heard as the voice of a great throng [on earth], and as a voice of many waters [the multitudes previously oppressed by the Harlot], and as a voice of strong thunderings, saying, Hallelujah: for the Lord our God the All-ruler has assumed the Kingdom. Let us be glad and exult, we will give to Him the glory [so long alienated from him]: for the marriage of the Lamb came, and his wife prepared herself. And to her was given that she should array herself in fine linen, bright and pure: for the fine linen is the righteousnesses of the (individual) saints.
And He said, Write, Blessed are they who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb. This is THUS SAITH THE LORD. And I fell before his feet to worship Him. And He said, Take heed: I am a fellowservant and of your brethren that have the witness of Jesus: worship God: for the witness of Jesus is the spirit of the prophecy".
Throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ's end-time Bride. As we read in Revelation 1:1, God gave the revelation to Jesus Messiah after His ascension; He in turn passed the Message to His angel, who revealed it to John. In Revelation 1:19, John was commanded to write the visions, however, as he was about to record the Messages of the Seven Thunders a Voice from heaven commanded, "Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not . . . but in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to deliver his Message the mystery of God spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets should be finished. . . Hence there will be silence in heaven for a short space of time while the Bride prepares herself by dressing in THUS SAITH THE LORD by the Message of the seventh angel" (Revelation 10:4, 7; 8:1; Acts 3:21). Since the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals to the time of the end and revealed exclusively to the angel of the Laodicean Church Age, we can be certain this angel John saw and heard when he looked from the day of the Lord back through time, was Brother Branham. Furthermore, we know John is our type, for of all the dispensations that have studied this Book we alone have understood Its Message.
As God veiled Himself behind the created Man whom Abraham worshipped in Genesis 18, and identified Himself as the Logos by discerning the thoughts and intents of Abraham and Sarah's hearts (Hebrews 4:12), He veiled Himself behind the virgin-born flesh of Jesus Messiah and identified Himself by the same sign (John 1:42, 47-50; 4:16-29, etc), and in these last days has veiled Himself behind William Branham, a sinner saved by grace, to reveal "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever" (Jehovah of the Old Testament is Jesus of the New): discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart "as it was in the days of Lot." This was the LAST sign Jesus promised us before the end of the Gentile dispensation (Luke 17:28-30). Like certain Pentecostals, John was overawed by the Supernatural display that reproduced the ministry of Jesus Christ, he fell down in worship and was reproved by Brother Branham (Revelation 19:10-11; 22:6-9).
In verses eleven to sixteen we are given a preview of Israel's parousia of the Son of man as their Warrior-Prince coming to destroy Rome (and the Edomite so-called Jews (Isaiah 63:2) whom the Talmud identifies as Imperial Rome). Like Zechariah 14:4, this is symbolic and Spiritual, not literal and physical. What Israel visualize is a symbolic pantomime of the fullness of the Word coming to war against the beast, not the physical return of the glorified Man. In verse thirteen His garment is stained with His Own Blood, shed for even the ungodly that trample it underfoot; hereafter His garments will be dyed with the blood of His enemies.
"And I saw the heaven opened [a vision], and beheld a white horse; and His rider was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wars. His eyes were a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns bearing a Name that no one knows but Himself; He was clothed in a vesture dipped in blood: and His Name has come to be called The Word of God. And the armies in the heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and pure. And out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, with which He should smite the Gentiles: and He shall shepherd them with an iron rod [at the White Throne Judgment]; and tread [Antichrist and his followers in] the winepress of the indignant fury of the wrath of God the All-ruler. And He has on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS".
This recognition and acknowledgment by the 144,000 of their King and Queen is the essential precondition for "the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel" (Acts 1:7). Messiah's parousia to Israel will usher in the Millennium, followed by their martyrdom, Armageddon, the binding of Satan, and the consummation of the present world system along with all life on earth.
Jeremiah 51 prophesied the sudden fall and destruction of natural Babylon, the first Gentile world empire to hold dominion over Israel in Judah. Like the souls now imprisoned in her spiritual antitype, the captives were warned to flee lest they be partakers in her punishment (Revelation 18:1-4). Jeremiah 51:7-8, "Babylon has been a golden cup in the Lord's hand that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine (Revelation 14:8; 17:4); therefore the nations are mad [with His vengeance]. Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed . . ." Her friends and confederates [like the Black Nobility, merchants and seafarers (Revelation 17:12-18; 18:2, 9-19), who behold her fall, are invited to her aid. They reply, her case is incurable and that she must be left to her fate. After the speech of her confederates, the Judeans celebrate with thanksgivings the faithfulness of their covenant God: a perfect type. As ancient Babylon was destroyed by an enemy from the North, Mystery Babylon the Great will also be destroyed by an enemy from the North (Ezekiel 38-39; Daniel 11:40-44; Revelation 17:16 18:20).
God used the overweening pride and iniquity of idolatrous Babylon to incite the nations to hatred. This will be the outcome of Rome's tyranny, leading to her destruction after she breaks her agreement with the International banksters in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth week.
Christ's second or parousia Coming to His end-time Bride brought us the perfect interpretation of the Word with the spirit of discernment (Hebrews 4:12; 5:14) since Christ is now in the office of Son of man "with authority to execute judgment." When the members of His end-time Bride are born-again and recognize His 'parousia,' we crown Christ King of kings and are one with THUS SAITH THE LORD of the Judge (Revelation 5:8-14).
However, as "the rain (or Holy Spirit) falls on the just and the unjust" (Matthew 5:45; Acts 2:17) the sinners also sense this Spirit of judgment, and without discernment the apostate leaders of our once Christian West have received a perverse spirit of strong delusion sent by God to drive them "mad with His vengeance." These madmen are inflicting self-righteous injustice and doing whatever it takes to maintain a private fiat monetary monopoly based upon debt instead of a financial system that reflects God's true abundance. Rome's death knell of the abrogation of her agreement with the International banksters in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week will signal Christ's parousia to 144,000 elect Israelites, not Jews, and the birth of that nation in one day will usher in the Millennium. nl450.htm
