Bible Believers' Newsletter 451
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we welcome your fellowship in the garden of God's Word.
Our well-loved Brother Trevis White, Pastor of Living Word Fellowship, passed beyond the curtain of time Monday morning, having finished his work by which the Lord has blessed the lives of many. Our thoughts and prayers remain with his wife, Sister Jacobie, their family and friends, and his congregation. He will be missed.
"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." Trev will rise. Hallelujah! He will rise. On that resurrection morning Trev will rise and appear to some Brother or Sister raise their faith for translation grace.
The natural types the Spiritual. Public knowledge is always years behind the truth, so truth is always stranger than fiction. Whatever is made public is always many years behind the latest developments. Today it is fiction we believe, and fact we shun. Our Lord Jesus Christ said long ago: "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
How many who call themselves Christians understand Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming took place in 1963, and that He is here now? The truth is stranger than fiction. He came "as a thief in the night" under the manifestation of the Sixth Vial, just before the pouring out of the Seventh Vial at the opening of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet, which call Israel to her Feast of Trumpets, and catch up the living Bride with the Church Age saints to meet the Lord in the Air.
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
The Melbourne Minutes: New Downing Street Memos from Down Under
November 28 2006 More than a year before the United States launched an endless war on Iraq in what President George W. Bush told Congress was an urgently needed action to prevent an attack with non-existent weapons by non-Iraqi terrorists . . . Eleven months before Bush told British Prime Minister Tony Blair that a good way to start a war on Iraq would be to paint planes with UN colors, fly them low, and get them shot at . . . Five months before the Downing Street Minutes were taken at a meeting revealing the knowledge top British officials had of the secret war plans of the Bush administration . . . Just a week or two before several of the Downing Street Memos recorded US-British discussions of the coming war . . .
On February 27, 2002 - just five months after 15 Saudis, 2 Lebanese, and 2 Yemenis flew airplanes into US buildingsTrevor Flugge, who was then chairman of AWB, the Australian Wheat Board, a private corporation, told AWB's board that John Dauth, who was then Australia's ambassador to the United Nations, had revealed to Flugge the plans of the US and Australian governments for war on Iraq.

Siege and Seizure in Korea
November 27, 2006 Travelling around the world these past months has given me an education about American history that majoring in the subject at UCLA never did. I have witnessed firsthand what US imperialism and militarism can do to countries and societies. I sat with indigenous Hawaiian tribal leaders who shared their tragic stories of how US colonialism and militarism ruined their fishing waters and turned their lands into super-fund sites. I stood in solidarity with Irish peace activists who want the US military off their soil and want US transport and rendition planes to stop using Shannon Airport to land for refuelling. These are just a few stories. Everywhere I go, the local populations have stories of greed, crime, corruption, pollution, etc., that all go hand in glove wherever the US military is present. Not to mention the "hot" war zones, where hundreds of civilians are murdered, maimed or displaced on a daily basis. . . Full story: truthout.org
The Secret of Washington DC
"The situation seems to me to be thus: An immense democracy, mostly ignorant and completely secluded from foreign influences and without any knowledge of other states of society, with great contempt for history and experience, finds itself in possession of enormous power and is eager to use it in brutal fashion against anyone who comes along without knowing how to do it, [emphasis in the original], and is therefore constantly on the brink of some frightful catastrophe..."

The God Delusion
This is an excerpt of a recent address delivered at the Free Library of Philadelphia in America by eminent scientist Richard Dawkins speaking about his reasons for being, as you'll hear, a 'tooth fairy agnostic.' He gets this part pretty well right.
Christianity claims to be a monotheistic religion, but you have to wonder sometimes. Rivers of medieval ink, not to mention blood, have been squandered over the mystery of the Trinity and in suppressing deviations such as the Arian heresy. Arius of Alexandria in the 4th century AD denied that Jesus was con-substantial, i.e. of the same substance or essence, with God. You're probably asking, What on earth could that possibly mean? Substance, what substance? What exactly do you mean by essence? Very little, seems the only reasonable reply. Yet the controversy split Christendom down the middle for a century and the Emperor Constantine ordered that all copies of Arius' book should be burned. Splitting Christendom by splitting hairs, such has ever been the way of theology.
Do we have one God in three parts, or three gods in one? The Catholic Encyclopedia clears up the matter for us in a masterpiece of theological close reasoning. 'In the unity of the godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; these three persons being truly distinct, one from another. Thus in the words of the Athanasian Creed, the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God, and yet there are not three gods but one god.
As if that were not clear enough, the Encyclopedia quotes the 3rd century theologian, St. Gregory, the Miracle Worker. 'There is therefore nothing created, nothing subject to another in the Trinity, nor is there anything that has been added as though it once had not existed, but had entered afterwards. Therefore the Father has never been without the Son, or the Son without the Spirit and this same Trinity is immutable and unalterable forever.'
Whatever miracles may have earned St. Gregory his nickname; they were not miracles of honest lucidity. His words convey the characteristically obscurantist flavour of theology, which unlike science, or most other branches of human scholarship, has not moved on in 18 centuries. Thomas Jefferson, as so often, got it right when he said, 'Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct, before reason can act upon them, and no man ever had a distinct idea of the Trinity. It is the mere abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus.'
Jefferson heaped ridicule on the doctrine that, as he put it, 'there are three Gods' in his critique of Calvinism. But it is especially the Roman Catholic branch of Christianity that pushes its recurrent flirtation with polytheism towards runaway inflation. The Trinity is joined by Mary, Queen of Heaven, a goddess in all but name, who surely runs God himself a close second as a target of prayers. The pantheon is further swollen by an army of saints, whose intercessory power makes them, if not demigods, well worth approaching on their own specialist subjects. The Catholic community forum hopefully lists 5,120 saints, together with their areas of expertise, which include abdominal pain, abuse victims, anorexia, arms dealers, blacksmiths, broken bones, bomb technicians and bowel disorders, to venture no further than the Bs.
Pope John Paul II created more saints than all his predecessors of the past several centuries put together. And he had a special affinity with the Virgin Mary. His polytheistic hankerings were dramatically demonstrated in 1981 when he suffered an assassination attempt in Rome, and attributed his survival to intervention by Our Lady of Fatima, a maternal hand guided the bullet. One cannot help wondering why she didn't guide it to miss him altogether. Others might think the team of surgeons who operated on him for six hours deserved at least a share of the credit. But perhaps their hands too were maternally guided. The relevant point is that it wasn't just Our Lady, who in the Pope's opinion guided the bullet, but specifically Our Lady of Fatima. Presumably Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Guadeloupe, Our Lady of Medjugorje, Our Lady of Akita, Our Lady of Zeitoun, Our Lady of Garabandal, and Our Lady of Knock, were busy on other errands at the time. . .

Message of H.E. Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the False Prophet
Were we not faced with the activities of the US administration in this part of the world and the negative ramifications of those activities on the daily lives of our peoples, coupled with the many wars and calamities caused by the US administration as well as the tragic consequences of US interference in other countries . . . Then, there would have been little urgency to have a dialogue with you . . .
The US administration does not accept accountability before any organization, institution or council. The US administration has undermined the credibility of international organizations, particularly the United Nations and its Security Council . . .
The sad experience of invading Iraq is before us all. What has blind support for the Zionists by the US administration brought for the American people? It is regrettable that for the US administration, the interests of these occupiers supersede the interests of the American people and of the other nations of the world. What have the Zionists done for the American people that the US administration considers itself obliged to blindly support these infamous aggressors? Is it not because they have imposed themselves on a substantial portion of the banking, financial, cultural and media sectors?

The Beast and the False Prophet
Revelation 12:7-13, "There was war in heaven: Michael and His angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, but they were defeated. So the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."
"And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ is come: for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them day and night before our God has been thrown down. For the Church Age saints have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the Word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death".
"Rejoice O heavens, and you who dwell therein. Woe to the earth and the sea, for the Devil has come down to you with raging anger, because he knows that his time is short. And when the dragon found himself cast down to earth, he persecuted the woman (Israel) who brought forth the man Child.
This prophecy will be fulfilled under the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet at the close of the Gentile dispensation when Satan is cast out of heaven, and all his angels with him. What is heaven? Heaven consists of the Logos or Word. It is the mind of God. Who are Satan's angels? Who but the non-elect, whose names are not written in the Lamb's Book of Life, and have either been blotted from or were never in the Book of Life. These will be dumbfounded when they see the Holy Roman Empire revive, pay homage to her then Devil-incarnate pope and his image, or receive his doctrine, which is to take the mark of the beast (Revelation 13:8, 16-18; 17:8). What is a denominational minister who has not maintained his estate in the Word of God and holiness, abandoned his life of faith and prayer for the security and social acceptability of denominationalism but a fallen angel? Many of these are sincerely doing God a service contrary to His will—souls imprisoned now, enchained by darkness until the White Throne Judgment, and know it not (II Peter 2:4; Jude 6; Revelation 3:17-20). These are the "stars of heaven that fall to earth" at the opening of the Sixth Seal (Newsletter 449; Revelation 6:12-13; Isaiah 34:4; Matthew 24:29). Their people, who should be messengers of Light, will inevitably be fallen angels also.
After His crucifixion, Jesus descended to the fifth dimension and continued ministering. His testimony vindicated the Old Testament saints but condemned the unbelievers; having crossed the line from mercy to judgment their names have been removed from the Book of Life and they could not be saved. Now His end-time Bride is preaching to souls in prison, perchance one among them might be "plucked as a brand from the fire" (I Peter 3:13-20; Revelation 10:8-11). God is known by revelation from Above, not debate from below. Titus 3:9-11, "Avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the Law; for they are unprofitable and vain. A man who is a heretic after the first and second admonition reject; knowing that he who is such is subverted, and sins, being condemned of himself" (Hosea 4:6; Luke 10:16; Hebrews 6:8).
The revival of the Holy (sic) Roman Empire is portrayed in Revelation 13:1-10. Whereas in the days of our Lord the brutal, venomous and untameable wild beast of Revelation 12:3 represented Imperial Rome with seven crowns upon its heads, as the "angel" William Branham showed John in Revelation 17:7-10, her military and political power received a death stroke. But the First Nicaea Council of AD325 revived and transformed her into Papal Rome, and she rose up out of the sea of nations into an empire that would rule over "many waters . . . peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues." The "crowns were now upon its ten horns, and names of blasphemy were on its heads"Lutheran, Presbyterian, Methodist, Baptist, Pentecostal and other blasphemous nameseach calling itself the Church of God but representing nothing more than the world with God's Name on it. Rome is the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth (Revelation 17:1-5).
If we compare Revelation 13:2 with Daniel 7:7-8, 19-25 will we see this beast is the final form of the fourth Gentile world empire that will rule Israel and the whole world unto the consummation; and behind the clerical robes of a pseudo-Christian exterior we see the composite attributes of the previous three beasts. Satan gave the beast his own power, and his throne or earthly headquarters has moved from Babylon to Pergamum, to Rome. Soon it will move to Jerusalem from where Satan will exercise his full authority. From that time no one will be able to make war with her incarnate pope, for Rome will control the wealth of the world.
Earthquakes at the close of the Gentile dispensation will sink Los Angeles (Revelation 18:21-24) and divide the mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:4-5), destroying the Mosque of Omar, and igniting the "hot" stage of a brief World War III in which Russia will attack and invade the United States. Incarnate in the Pope, Satan will establish consensus among the world's religions which all have offices in the Vatican, and restore peace. And the inhabitants of earth will, "worship the dragon (Satan) who gave power to the beast: and they will worship the beast, saying, Who is as great as the beast? Who is able fight against him"?
Martial law will be introduced in every nation following this total upset of nature involving earthquakes of unprecedented magnitude, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis. Christ's Church and the foolish virgin will become hated because the love of God will constrain us to preach to those who are completely lost, explaining by the Scripture the significance of what has taken place and emphasizing the absolute necessity of refusing the doctrine and service of Rome and her apostate (once) Protestant daughters. To the carnal mind this will seem like sedition for it is their religious institutions administer disaster relief worldwide. As Brother Branham explained, "Rome is not going it alone. Her daughters are right with her and she will take over absolute authority by the World Council of Churches. This may seem farfetched to some but actually it is very plain for all to see because right now the churches are controlling politics and at the opportune time will manifest exactly how great is that control. 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. Thus all the people have to belong to the world church system or be at the mercy of the elements for they cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast in the hand or head. This mark in the head means that they will have to take the doctrine of the world church system which is trinitarianism, etc., and the mark in the hand which means to do the will of the world church. With this great power the church systems will persecute the true Bride. This image will try to keep the Bride from preaching and teaching, etc. Her ministers will be forbidden to give comfort and truth to the people who need it. But before the Antichrist (in person) takes over this complete world system of churches the true church will be taken away from this world to be with the Lord. God will catch away His Bride for the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 376:1).
It is in this time of unprecedented trouble that Satan is cast down to earth and incarnates the pope of Rome. Through her association with Rothschild, Rome will control the gold of the world.
The Treaty of Paris of 1763 designated King George III "Arch-Treasurer and Prince Elector of the Holy Roman Empire." And "according to the Encyclopedia Judaica the Rothschilds bear the title "Guardians of the Vatican Treasury." The Vatican Treasury, of course, holds the imperial wealth of Rome. Imperial wealth grows in proportion to its victories in waras the Jesuit empowerment Regimini militantis ecclesiae implies, the Church-at-War is more necessary than the Church-at-Peace. According to H. Russell Robinson's illustrated Armour of Imperial Rome, Caesarean soldiers protect themselves in battle with shields painted red. Since the soldiery is the State's most valuable resource (the Council of Trent admitted this in preferring the Jesuits to all other religious orders), it is easy to understand why the red shield was identified with the very life of the Church. Hence, the appropriateness of the name Rothschild, German for "red shield." The appointment of Rothschild gave the black papacy absolute financial privacy and secrecy. Who would ever search a family of orthodox Jews for the key to the wealth of the Roman Catholic Church? I believe this appointment explains why the House of Rothschild is famous for helping nations go to war. It is fascinating that, as Meyer Rothschild's sons grew into the family business, the firm took on the title Meyer Amschel Rothschild und Sohne, which gives us the notariqon, MARS. Isn't Mars the Roman God of War, whose heavenly manifestation is "the red planet"? There is powerful cabala here, and there's hardly an acre of inhabitable earth that hasn't been affected by it in some way (Tupper Saussy, Rulers of Evil. p. 160-161).
In the final words of his book The Vatican Empire, Nino Lo Bello states, "While the Vatican has remained secretive about its fiscal policy, it has never believed that the investment of Church money was either illegal, objectionable in principle, or contrary to good conscience. In seeking to resolve the conflict between that which is to be rendered to God and that which is to be rendered to Caesar, the Vatican has developed its own special modus vivendi between the sacred and the secular. The view of the pope as a kind of chairman of the board may shock some readers. But let us remember that the Vatican is a remarkable, centuries-old institution, and that, when it comes to money, it is one that is fully in tune with the spirit of the times."
"This writer foresees the day, perhaps a thousand years from now, when the Vatican will cease functioning as a religious institution and take up, on a full-time basis, the duties of a large-scale business corporation. The transition will not be as difficult to effectuate as one might suspect. For just as Catholicism will decline and eventually withdraw from the ranks of the major religions, so, too, will Church money find its way into nearly every area of the free world's economy. Then, at last, the tycoon on the Tiber will shed the mantle of piety; then, at last, the Vatican will expose the full extent of its financial interests" (Nino Lo Bello, The Vatican Empire, p. 185-186).
This will be fatally apparent to all dissenters during Daniel's Seventieth Week (Revelation 13:8, 16-18; 18:24). Rome is a beast in sheep's clothing, her false religion merely a "front" whereby she has disarmed the world whilst she steals absolute power of one world government.
The Vatican owns hundreds of banking companies in its own right but likes to maintain its funds in numbered Swiss bank accounts, one reason . . . is because the Swiss franc can provide protection against inflation and devaluation . . . the Swiss franc is guaranteed up to 130 percent by gold. So, because Switzerland's money is "hard money," the Vatican holds francs and exchanges them for the legal tender of another country when needed" (Ibid, pp.114-119).
Early in the 19th century the Pope approached the Rothschilds to borrow money. The Rothschilds were very friendly with the Pope, causing one journalist to sarcastically say "Rothschild has kissed the hand of the Pope. . . Order has at last been re-established" (Derek Wilson, Rothschild: The Wealth and Power of a Dynasty, p. 101).
Researcher Eustice Mullins writes that the Rothschilds took over all the financial operations of the worldwide Catholic Church in 1823 (The Curse of Canaan, p.125). Today the large banking and financial business of the Catholic Church is an extensive system interlocked with the Rothschilds and the rest of the International Banking system. The great wealth of the Russian Czars was entrusted to the Rothschilds, $35 million with the Rothschild's of England, and $80 million in the Rothschild's Paris bank. The Rothschilds financed the Russian Revolution which confiscated vast portions of the Orthodox Church's wealth. They have been able to prevent (due to their power) the legitimate heirs of the Czars' fortune to withdraw a penny of the millions deposited in a variety of their banks. The Mountbatten's, who are related to the Rothschilds, led the court battles to prevent the claimants from withdrawing any of the fortune. In other words, the money they invested in the Russian Revolution, was not only paid back directly by the Bolshevists in millions of dollars of gold, but by grabbing the huge deposits of the Czars' wealth, the Rothschilds gained what is now worth over $50 Billions (Mullins, Eustace. The World Order, p.5).
"A number of rich Catholics undertook to organize a competitor bank to rival the Rothschild power . . . sometime about 1830. The Rothschilds crushed it. The Jewish Encyclopedia (Vol. 2, p. 497) admits that: "Following the failure of the Catholic bank, Union Generals, leaving the Rothschilds still more absolutely the undisputed leaders of French finance, but leaving also a legacy of hatred which had much influence on the growth of the anti-Semitic movement in France."
It says further: "It is a somewhat curious sequel to the attempt to set up a Catholic competitor to the Rothschilds that at the present time (1905) the latter are the guardians of the papal treasure."
If this latter statement is true the Rothschilds control in addition to their own fortune the immense liquid resource of the Catholic Church, which is second only to the Rothschilds in wealth and power. It is probably not literally true since the private banking firm did not do commercial banking. It is likely that the papal treasure is deposited with the Bank of England or some other bank "front," but even so it contributes to the Rothschild power" (George Armstrong, Rothschild Money Trust, p. 42). (Prior to 1946 the Bank of England was a Rothschild bank. Newsletters 171 and 269).
The earthquake that sinks Los Angeles will cause the collapse of the US dollar, which is the currency of world trade. This will bankrupt nations, multinational and small corporations, and ruin the International banksters whose wealth is debit money in the form of electronic records and worthless paper, mortgages on property that will be instantly devalued to a fraction of its pre-earthquake valuation. In addition, bonds, shares and other financial instruments like superannuation, insurance and assurance policies will be worthless unless the US dollar is refinanced.
Brother Branham said, "You watch for a depression, brother. You think you've seen something; you just wait after while. You haven't seen nothing" (Jezebel Religion, p. 22:100). Rome (aka Rothschild and the Illuminati) with her control of the world's gold will reach a seven-year covenant with International Jews to refinance the US dollar. As prophesied in Daniel 9:27, "The prince from Rome (Daniel 9:26) will confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he will cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations (forcing the mark of the beast) he will make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined will be poured upon the desolator".
Revelation 13:5-6, "the beast was given a mouth to speak proud words and blasphemies, and granted authority to control the earth for forty-two months. Throughout this time he blasphemed against God, and against His Name, and His abode, and those who dwell in heaven." That is, during the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week while Israel's two prophets are ministering the Feast of the Trumpets to an election of blood Israelites.
It is important at this point that we distinguish the secular beast, which is a revivified Holy Roman Empire comprising the ten kings (Black Nobility families) that once ruled the ten nations into which, upon its demise Rome fragmented, from its ecclesiastical partner, the Great Whore or Roman Catholic church that rides or controls this beast (Revelation 17:3). In this age of educated apostasy neither the nobility nor the commoners can long be intimidated by Roman superstitions without a quid pro quo, and will not allow the hubris of religious dignitaries to overcome sound reason, so when Rome breaks her covenant, the secular beast and these ten kings will hate the Roman Catholic church and burn Vatican City State off the face of the earth by atomic fire (Revelation 17:16; 18:18). All religion and Communism are to be destroyed, and replaced by the pure Luciferian doctrine.
The Bible is the story of God and Lucifer incarnating themselves into two kingdoms. One imparting eternal Life through faith and free will by His Holy Spirit, the other bringing death through indoctrination and coercion by his lying spirit. Satan, who is called the Dragon or great serpent (Revelation 20:2) and the beast (Revelation 11:7), has his earthly headquarters in Rome, which likewise is called the Dragon (Revelation 12 and 13) and the beast (Revelation 13). When Satan is cast out from heaven and incarnates the pope, he will no longer be called the false prophet but the beast (Revelation 13:3-6, 17-18; 14:9-11; 17:10-11).
It is important for us to recognize that at this time, the two lamb-like horns of the beast from the earth, secular and spiritual powers, the World Council of Churches and the United States, will be joined in a union of church and state, an image unto the beast of the revived Holy Roman empire (Revelation 13:11-15; 16:13; 19:20; 20:10). This image unto the beast will "perform unimaginable miracles, even making (nuclear) fire descend from heaven onto earth in the sight of men, and by means of those miracles which he is authorized to perform in the presence of the beast, he deceives those that dwell on the earth, telling them that they should make a (pseudo-Protestant) image to the Roman beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had authority to give life to the image of the beast that the image of the beast should demand, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed." United States under her final president, George Bush II, is speaking lies like the Dragon and exercising all the power of the first beast in cruel torture, rape and rapine, in practice for the great tribulation when it will force the mark of the first beast which will control the second beast by the power of gold with which it refinances the US dollar (Revelation 13:13-15).
In mimicry of John 16:13-15, this apostate (once) Protestant image unto the beast speaks of himself but commands all men to worship the first beast. Brother Branham said that the false prophet started with the first pope. But when the last pope is incarnate, he is called the beast. Even now the United States is pushing "the kings of the earth and of the whole world to the battle of Armageddon" (Revelation 16:14; 17:14; 19:20). East against West, Judaeo-Communism against Judaeo-Catholicism. Unclean spirits against unclean spirits.
Various researchers, including David Icke, in his book The Biggest Secret, point out that all 42 men who were Presidents of the USA are related, and that 33 of the Presidents can be traced back to the bloodline of Charlemagne, who in the year 800 was crowned by Pope Leo III to be Holy Roman Emperor, the first head of an empire that would last over 1,000 years! This should be setting off major alarm bells in your mind. Like this is no coincidence. The odds of all 42 Presidents being related, and this just randomly happening, are billions to one (redicecreations.com). The English Royal Family are actually German Khazars whose family name is Guelph.
Rome's unprovoked hatred for Islam, shared by the (once) Protestant churches and prosecuted by the military forces of the City of London, is quite rational considering Islam's third most holy place is the Dome of the Rock situated on the Temple site coveted by Rome and required by 'the City' for its end-game. If Roman Catholics and so-called Protestants read Genesis 16:11-12 they would see that Ishmael is caught up in so much internal discord, thanks to 'the City,' he is no threat, and that the Iraq war "is [not] all about oil, stupid," but Satan's ambition to usurp David's greater Son and relocate his headquarters from Rome to Mount Moriah where God met with the congregation of ancient Israel in the temple, north of Mount Zion, "the City of the great King" (Isaiah 14:12-14; Psalms 48:2).
When the Holy Spirit is taken from earth in the "rapture" or resurrection and translation of the Church, "that man of sin, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped so that he as God sits in the temple of God showing himself that he is God" will be revealed to the apostate world (II Thessalonians 2:3-7). As the one responsible for bringing a new world order out of the chaos of World War III and the first president of the world, he "sits" as by right of one upon whom a kingdom has been confirmed, occupying the place of power and majesty in opposition to Him who "sits on the right hand of the Majesty on high" (Hebrews 1:3), and who shall come to "sit" there where the usurper had sat (Matthew 26:64). "In the temple of God," clearly shows us that the grand Antichrist arises from within the world church system. "By flatteries," he will cause not only Gentiles from around the earth (Daniel 11:32-45; Revelation 11:10), but many Jews and also apostates of the "the tribes" of Israel (Revelation 11:8-9) to own him as their long-looked-for Messiah, in the "city where our Lord was crucified," after the first three and a half years of Daniel's Seventieth Week when he breaks the covenant he has made with the International Jews and usurps divine honours.
Revelation is a Book of symbols; Satan impersonates these symbols and the Work they represent. To illustrate: the way into God's Presence is guarded by four living creatures representing the four tribal groups of Israel who camped around the Tabernacle in the wilderness, and by the four Gospels that guard the way to His throne under the New Testament. These demand the evidence of faith in the present Truth before granting the believer permission to advance. In our dispensation we enter by the northern gate which is guarded by the Gospel of John, the living creature with the face of an Eagle, providing our faith is in perfect concord with the testimony of the Gospels guarding the other three gates.
Satan's counterpart of the four living creatures is represented by the four brutal, venomous and untameable wild beasts of Daniel 7:1-8, which are the four Gentile world empires that rule over Israel from Nebuchadnezzar's overthrow of Judea to the consummation of all life on earth and the restoration of the kingdom to Israel by their faith in Christ's 'parousia' Coming and the birth of the nation in one day. These four beasts have worked to conquer the inhabitants of earth and forcibly establish the totalitarian one world government Satan offered to Jesus in Matthew 4:8-9. A beast represents a power, and although the identity or mask of the beast changes with his different acts, the spirit that rode the white, red and black horses is the power controlling the pale horse now. The power represented as the beasts of Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Imperial Rome now controls the consummate beast of Papal Rome which is "diverse from all kingdoms, and will devour the whole earth (in one world government), and tread it down, and break it in pieces." Papal Rome is the "little horn" with "eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things" (Daniel 7:8, 23).
Christ is typed as a beast, a lamb: so gentle the dove of like nature is not afraid to light on him. In Revelation 9:1-2, Satan is typed as the beast from the bottomless pit. After he is cast out from heaven he will evict the demons from the pope and incarnate him as "that man of sin, the son of perdition." Rome's incarnate pope is introduced without explanation as "the beast from the bottomless pit" (Revelation 11:7) because he had already been described in Daniel 7:3, 11, 20-25 as the leader of the fourth Gentile world empire (Revelation 13:1-4; 17:8).
Another symbol is the woman who is submissive to her Lord, represented by the elect of Israel who gave birth to Christ and crossed over the Law into the Son-Light of the Word (Revelation 12). She is also called the true Church, the Bride and wife of Christ (Revelation 19). This humble woman is impersonated by the materialistic, worldly false church and her harlot daughters (Revelation 17). Christ's Bride is caught up into Glory, to be ever with the Lord, while the false church will be burned with Fire in punishment for her adulteries.
Christ and Satan will meet at the battle of Armageddon. Riding His pure white horse, and called "Life," the Word of God, Christ is followed by the vindicated Word of resurrected saints who were in heaven, also riding on white horses (I Corinthians 15:48; Revelation 19:14). Riding his pale-coloured horse, Satan is called Death," and Hell followed with him" to perdition (Revelation 6:8; 17:8; 19:19-20; 20:10).
The armies following Satan to perdition or total loss in the lake of Fire are the multitudes who have received his trinitarian doctrine, which is the mark of the beast in their forehead, or served his will, which is the mark in the right hand. Those without the Seal of God who partake in the confederation of apostasy receive the mark of the beast. The "saved" who refuse, will be martyred. Those who reject our witness to the fullness of the Word are souls imprisoned now. By rejecting the Seal of God they have crossed from mercy to judgment; their names are blotted from the Book of Life and they bear the mark of the beast as Jesus foretold in Revelation 3:17-20, "and know it not".
When Jesus incarnates Himself into His people, His Life lives in them (John 17:21). John 14:19-20, 12, "Yet a little while, and the world will no longer see Me; but you will see me: because I live, you will live also. In the day in which you receive My Life you shall know that I am in My Father and you in Me and Me in you. . . In solemn truth I assure you, He who believes in me will also do the works that I do, and greater works than these will he do; because I go to the Father." Likewise, when Satan is incarnate in his church, he has them bound by his power and they do the same works he did. Satan was a murderer and liar in the beginning. And as the false prophet prophesies his followers into the mark of the beast they give themselves over to strong delusions to believe his lie and be damned by it. Now they too are liars, having a form of godliness but denying the revealed Word of God. Watch the third pull when our dispensation has ended and we are squeezed out of society. Brother Branham said, "It'll be absolutely to the total lost, but it will be for the Bride and the church" (Look Away to Jesus, p. 7:49).
Revelation 19:20-21, "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles in his presence, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant was slain with the sword of Him that sat upon the horse, which Sword proceeded out of His mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh".
The question is, who do the beast and the false prophet represent at this point in time? The beast is not Satan himself, for he is not cast into the Lake of Fire until Revelation 20:10, "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever." This beast cannot be the Great Harlot, for she was judged in chapter 17 and blasted from the face of the earth in chapter 18 (Revelation 19:1-3) under the curse of the Seventh Vial of chapter 16:19. These are two men who are alive at the time of Armageddon when the pope and the false prophet are ruling "from the sides of the north."
According to Daniel 7:11, "I watched because of the boasting of the little horn (pope): I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame." The ten kings have by now razed the Vatican. According to Daniel 2:40-45 and 9:27, Rome will rule the world until the consummation when she is slain by the Word of God who allows Communism to rise up and destroy her as He allowed Nebuchadnezzar to destroy apostate Judea.
Satan's objective is to incarnate a people for a kingdom that would usurp the Kingdom or Body of Christ, which is His Church. So the body of the fourth beast is those who have taken His mark of trinitarian worship, while the false prophet is the former of last pope before "that man of sin, the son of perdition" whom Satan will incarnate.
Revelation 14:9-13, "The angel Brother Branham followed the angels, Luther and Wesley, 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, he shall drink of the wine 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 who worship the beast and his image or receive the mark of his name have no rest day nor night. Let this encourage the saints to patiently every trial and persecution; these are they who that keep the Commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus". This is the event described in Revelation 19:20.
Malachi 3:16 – 4:3, "They who feared the Lord spoke often of Him to each other: and the Lord listened and heard, and a Book of Remembrance was drawn up in which was recorded the names of those who feared Him and loved to think on His Name. They shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up My jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spares an obedient and dutiful son. Then you will once more distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who serves Him not."
"For, behold, the day of judgment is coming, that shall burn as a furnace; then all the proud (Brother Branham said, "like the Americans and so forth") and all that do wickedly will be stubble, and the day that comes shall burn them up, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But for you who reverence My Name will the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His beams; and you shall go forth leaping like calves from the stall. And you will tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day when I act, says the Lord of hosts." (Also see Matthew 3:12; 13:42, 50; Acts 1:6; 3:19-26).
Organized religion was never of God. The spirit of fornication is the spirit of organization, and all organizational systems will burn with the whore as the woman Eve should have been burnt with the Serpent (Leviticus 21:9). Only Jezebel, the Roman beast and her false prophet husband Ahab, its (once) Protestant image, are judged at the end of the great tribulation. All others will stand trial at the White Throne Judgment after the Millennium and the general resurrection.
Revelation 2:21-23, "I gave the Jezebel (the Roman Catholic Church), space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children (the Protestant denominations) with death; and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the reins and hearts: and I will give to every one of you according to your works". nl451.htm
