Pope reasserts Primacy of Roman Catholic Church
Lorenzago di Cadore, July 10, 2007 Pope Benedict XVI has reasserted the universal primacy of the Roman Catholic Church, approving a document released Tuesday that says Orthodox churches were defective and that other Christian denominations were not true churches. Benedict approved a document from his old offices at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith that restates church teaching on relations with other Christians. It was the second time in a week the pope has corrected what he says are erroneous interpretations of the Second Vatican Council, the 1962-65 meetings that modernized the church . . .
It restates key sections of a 2000 document the pope wrote when he was prefect of the congregation, "Dominus Iesus," which set off a firestorm of criticism among Protestant and other Christian denominations because it said they were not true churches but merely ecclesial communities and therefore did not have the "means of salvation."
"Christ 'established here on earth' only one church," the document said. The other communities "cannot be called 'churches' in the proper sense" because they do not have apostolic successionthe ability to trace their bishops back to Christ's original apostles . . .
There was no indication about why the pope felt it necessary to release the document, particularly since his 2000 document summed up the same principles. Some analysts suggested it could be a question of internal church politics, or that it could simply be an indication of Benedict using his office as pope to again stress key doctrinal issues from his time at the congregation.

Comment: Paul said, "According to the grace of God which is given to me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another builds thereon. But let every man take heed how he builds thereon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ " (In I Corinthians 3:10-11).
Jesus said, "The image unto the beast will cause all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: that no man might buy or sell, save he who had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name" (Revelation 13:16-17).
Hindu Prayer at US Senate sparks Christian Protest
Washington, July 13, 2007 History was made in the American Congress on Thursday as the US Senate opened its daily session with Hindu prayers.
Former journalist and priest, Rajan Zed wearing the traditional saffron robe, delivered the minute-and-a-half long prayer, which was translated into English as per the rules of the Senate Chaplain. But before the ceremony could begin, a small group of vocal Christian protestors shouted angry slogans from the visitor's gallery right above the Senate floor . . .
Nevada-based Zed has performed similar ceremonies in the State Assembly and Senate and traveled to Washington after getting an invitation from Senator Harry Reid to do the same on Capitol Hill. Full story: ibnlive.com
Putin blocks Russia's Participation in Europe's Key Arms Control Treaty
Moscow, July 14, 2007 President Vladimir Putin signed a decree suspending Russia's participation in the Conventional Forces in Europe Treaty due to "extraordinary circumstances . . . which affect the security of the Russian Federation and require immediate measures," the Kremlin said in a statement. The law takes effect immediately.
Putin has in the past threatened to freeze his country's compliance with the treaty, accusing the United States and its NATO partners of undermining regional stability with US plans for a missile defense system in former Soviet bloc countries in Eastern Europe. . . Full story: pravda.ru
Tonkin Gulf II and the Guns of August?
July 17, 2007 Is the United States provoking war with Iran, to begin while the Congress is conveniently on its August recess? One recalls that it was in August 1964, after the Republicans nominated Barry Goldwater that the Tonkin Gulf incident occurred. Twice it was said, on August 2 and August 4, North Vietnamese patrol boats had attacked the US destroyers Maddox and Turner Joy in international waters. The US Senate responded by voting 88 to two to authorize President Johnson to assist any Southeast Asian nation whose government was threatened by communist aggression.
The bombing of the North began, followed by the arrival of US Marines. America's war was on.
As Congress prepares for its August recess, the probability of US air strikes on Iran rises with each week. A third carrier, the USS Enterprise, and its battle group is joining the Nimitz and Stennis in the largest concentration of US naval power ever off the coast of Iran. And Tonkin Gulf II may have already occurred . . . is Congress in on it? Full story: rense.com
First Fridge Magnets, now Clover's Go Bag
Sydney, July 17, 2007 The Lord Mayor, Clover Moore, is urging Sydneysiders to prepare a "Go Bag"packed with maps, running shoes, energy bars and even sticky-tapeso they can be ready for any disaster that may strike the city.
The Go Bag is part of a broader City of Sydney campaign called "Let's Get Ready Sydney", to be unveiled today with the release of posters and 200,000 booklets advising what to do in the event of a terrorist attack or natural disaster.
The $200,000 project, half-funded by the Commonwealth Attorney-General's department, advises city residents and workers to prepare for a hazardous materials incident, an explosion, an outbreak of contagious disease, civil disturbance, a natural disaster or other emergencies . . .
Cr. Harris, a member of the Greens, suggested every Go Bag include a can-opener, a pair of sunglasses, inflatable floaties, a copy of a Sydney good food guide and a one-way ticket to Barcelona.
"I just find these fear campaigns personally offensive. Where are we supposed to go with our Go Bags? With our current public transport system, the roads would be clogged in minutes," he said yesterday.
"If it's part-funded by the Attorney-General's Department, it smacks of a Federal Government fear campaign. It's purely sensationalist". . . Full story: smh.com.au
The Feast of Trumpets Part IV
As in Part III of this series we will return to the transcript of Brother Branham's sermon and rephrase his 'Kentucky English.' If you do not have it, go to William Branham On-line; click "The Message," paste The Feast of the Trumpets in the search window, click "search," click the right hand double arrow which will take you to a transcript of that title, mark, copy and paste into your notepad. I will post my comments within square brackets .
Brother Branham said, "Now, let me say this right here, that every trumpet that blowed, blowed under the Sixth Seal. . . All the Trumpets sounded under the Sixth Seal" (The Feast of the Trumpets, p. 19:148).
Israel's Trumpet mysteries will be "blowed," "sounded" or revealed by the ministry of Israel's two prophets under the Sixth Seal, which will be the time of "Jacob's trouble" in the great tribulation of Daniel's Seventieth Week after the close of the Gentile dispensation. God cannot deal with two different covenants simultaneously. He determined seventy weeks of years or 490x360-day years to Israel "from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem" unto the restoration of the Kingdom, which will be the Millennium (Daniel 9:24-27). This period commenced on Nisan 14, 445BC and continued until Israel "cut off" Messiah on Calvary 483 years later. God then turned to the Gentiles "to take out of them a people for His Name," a Bride (Deuteronomy 32:21; Isaiah 49:6; Malachi 1:11; Acts 15:14), leaving the seventieth week of seven prophetic years in which Israel must fulfill the sixfold purpose of Gabriel's instructions (Daniel 9:24). When the last member predestinated to Christ's end-time Bride is born-again, the Seventh Trumpet will sound the end of our dispensation one Nisan 14, and He will return to Israel after "the Day of Pentecost has fully come"again!
Under the Seventh Seal there is "silence in heaven about the space of half an hour," during which "the Lord Himself descended from heaven . . . and He had in His hand a little Book open: and He set His right foot upon [the beast from] the sea, and his left foot on [the beast from the] earth" (I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 10:1-2). This was the 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man to Spiritual Israel as a thief to reveal the mystery of the Seven Seals after He had claimed and opened the Book (I Thessalonians 5:1-5; II Peter 3:10; Revelation 3:3; 8:1; 16:15). The Seventh Trumpet will shatter that silence with the sinking of Los Angeles as the Sixth Seal manifests, marking the 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man to natural Israel.
Let us clarify paragraph 155, "Notice, now, exactly the continuity of the Scripture . . . the Seventh Trumpet is to Israel the same as the Seventh Seal was to the Church [and reveal the mystery of the previous six Trumpets as the unwritten Seventh Seal revealed the mysteries of the previous six written Seals]. We find [it revealed to us] under the Seventh Seal, that when these souls that was under the altar there that received robes; they were given robes, not that they earned them, because they were in the dispensation when God was still dealing with grace with the Gentiles, not Jews [rather Israelites]. Israel is saved as a nation; God deals with Israel as a nation. Gentiles is a people for His Name, not a nation for His Name, Israel".
Brother Branham said, "God will not let sin go unpunished. There must be punishment. What good is a law without a punishment? . . And when God makes a law and that Law is defied, then there's got to be punishment for that.
And Israel had violated all of His laws. Oh, they had big church; they had the temple. They had plenty of educated men. They had prophets all over the country, had schools of them, turning them out like a machine. And they had plenty of . . . priests; they had plenty of scribes; and they had plenty of religion; but they were away from the Word of God. So God called a man outside of any of their ranks at all, and sent him in with THUS SAITH THE LORD.
And notice how He cares for His Own. Before He sent this prophet with the Message, He said, "Elijah, go down and tell King Ahab these things. And now, when you do, get yourself away from him right quick, for I have made a place for you to go during the drought. I'm going to take care of you, Elijah, if you just preach My Word, do just what I tell you to do."
Now, I'm going to type this great ministry tonight of Elijah and the time of Elijah, with the hour that we're now in. I believe it's a perfect type . . . So if we could go back and see Israel had taken Palestine upon the same basis that we took this United States. We come into this United States and drove back the occupants, which was the Indians, and possessed the land. And so did Israel come into Palestine under the leadership of Joshua, under God, and drove back the occupants and took the land.
And their first kings were mighty men, David, Solomon, great men. Our first Presidents were great men: Washington, Lincoln, and so forth. Then finally the presidents or the kings become getting more rotten all the time; finally they ended up with this Ahab. Very type, typical of our day. . . And the people had got so modern they didn't want to hear the true Word of the Lord" (Spiritual Food in Due Season, p. 5:25-30).
That may not suggest a propitious outlook for the American Indiansmost of the tribes, but it is a natural type for the spiritual antitype. Elijah closed the heavens, telling Ahab there would be neither rain nor dew until He spoke the Word. That brought a natural drought upon Israel, but while He was punishing the unbelievers God provided a way of escape for the believer. He hid Elijah in a secret place, providing for him, and for the widow and her son who received his ministry (I Kings 17).
Amos 8:11, "Behold, the days come, says the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the Words of the Lord".
II Timothy 3:1-2, 7, "In the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be . . . lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof".
Revelation 3:17, "You say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked".
Elijah smote the Syrian army blind and led them into captivity. The Lord God veiled Himself behind our Elijah and revealed Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, yet forty years later so-called Christian soldiers are spiritually blind and know it not. In rejecting His Message they rejected Him and smote themselves blind. John 3:19, "This is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil".
God has hidden our Elijah in the secret place; the Church is sealed, and the end-time Bride who was fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary has been called out of the world church system into the wilderness, eating on the secret things of God hidden from a world headed for judgment during this Spiritual drought. "Jesus told His disciples, I have food you know nothing of. My meat is to do the will of Him that sent Me, and to finish His work" (John 4:32-34). Our food is for the Bride alone. "And the barrel of meal will not waste, nor the cruse of oil fail" until heaven's silence is shattered by the blast of the Seventh Trumpet and God sends rain upon earth as typed by I Kings 17-18the former rain for Israel, and the latter rain for Christ's Bride (Joel 2:23; Zechariah 14:8). Then the dead in Christ will rise. God vindicated Israel's Elijah when he called fire down from heaven, and He will vindicate our Elijah when He sinks Los Angeles to the bottom of the ocean.
II Thessalonians 1:6-8, "It is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; and to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ".
The thousands of souls under the altar crying for vengeance are Israelites martyred for the Commandments of God between Calvary and the end of the Gentile dispensation. God's Law requires "life for life" (Exodus 21:23). "Being high priest, Caiaphas told the Sanhedrin, You know nothing at all, nor consider that it is expedient for us that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. He spoke not of his own initiative: but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus should die for the nation; and not for that nation only, but that He should gather together into one nation the children of God that were scattered throughout the world. So from that day on the Jewish leaders began plotting Jesus' death . . . and all the people cried, His blood be on us, and on our children." And it has been from that day to this (John 11:49-53; Matthew 27:25).
These Israelites denied Messiah because their rabbis and political Zionists blinded them to the Word of God with Talmudic fables, thus they were slain according to Caiaphas' prophecy with which they agreed. Under the Sixth Seal after the end of the Gentile dispensation it is revealed to them that they are "saved." Their situation under the altar of sacrifice in the heavenly tabernacle signifies they are under the saving grace of the Blood of Christ and will be granted into eternal Life (or receive "white robes" indicative of righteousness) at the White Throne Judgment because they died in martyrdom for the Commandments of God. God tells them to rest until 144,000 elect Israelites are born-again as a Christian nation in one day and martyred under the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet as they were under the Fifth Seal and the first Six Trumpets (Matthew 25; Revelation 13:15-18; ibid p. 21:162).
"There they are; these trumpets are let loose on the Jews [he means Israelites, any Jews who suffered, did so because they are impersonating Israel for the blessing which is not theirs to receive, although they will partake their chastisement] (Don't you see?), not on the Gentiles. The Gentile, when them Seals was opened [and "the mystery of God is finished,"] is sealed away. Time [for mediation in behalf of ignoranceRevelation 10:6] has ended; the [PART-Word] Church is called" (ibid p. 22:164).
As explained in the teaching sermons, Christ's Mediation, and Redemption is Over, whilst the Bible was sealed Christ had to intercede for the ignorance of the Church Age saints until the last elect predestinated to Laodicea was born-again. Then the Mercy Seat became a Judgment Seat: His intercession in the Office of Son of God was fulfilled and the sacrificed Lamb became the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Taking the Book of Redemption, which is the Title Deed to all things, He descended to earth in the threefold PROCESS of the "shout" of the Message, "the Voice of the Archangel," which is Christ in the heart of the Bride placing the Message from Genesis to Revelation to bring His end-time Bride to maturity in "the unity of the faith" and "speaking conditions" for the "third pull" and "the manifestation of the Sons of God" after the Seventh "Trumpet of God." Because Christ's end-time Bride lives under the Seventh Seal and the 144,000 elect will live under the Seventh Trumpet, the prophetic ministries of our "Elijah" and their "Moses" and "Elijah" reveal the fullness of Christ so that we do not require intercession for ignorance and were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary. Thus "when them Seals was opened [the elect Gentiles] is sealed away. Time [or delay for intercession] has ended; [and] the Church is called."
"You remember the vision the other day? Remember the preview of it? How many remembers Sunday 'fore last? How there it was exactly come by; we seen it exactly, seen that dirty, filthy thing come up called the church (vulgarity is to the extreme), and that little Bride of every nation, each one of them dressed like their nation they come from, just perfectly, walking before the Lord." [Brother Branham is referring to his vision of the Alpha and Omega Bride, the Church Age saints in between, and the denominational group in the World Council of Churches described in The Masterpiece, p. 32:186-201].
"You notice, there'll be a time some time when they'll say, "Well, I thought the Church was to go before the persecution. I thought there's a rapture."
"It's already passed and you knew it not." That's what He said about John one time, you know."
Said, "Why say the scribes that Elias must first come?"
He said, "He's already come." And even the disciples didn't know it. [The "Elijah" of this day introduced Christ, the fullness of the Word, "and even the disciples" in the circle of this Message do not know it]. "They done to him what they listed."
The rapture will be the same way. In a hour . . . He's promised to do that. He didn't promise to show Elias like that, but He promised to take the Bride like thatin a hour that you think not, just a change in a moment of a twinkling of an eye be caught away; then you're left. Then that's the time" (ibid p. 22:165-169).
The ministry of our Elijah was not done in a "secret place" but around the world before congregations of scores and hundreds of thousands. But the rapture is a revelation few within the circle of this Message begin to comprehend. Christ has come "as a thief," and He is here now.
Brother Branham's The Feast of the Trumpets, perhaps more than any of his other teachings demonstrates the imperative of taking the Message back to Scripture to unlock the revelation of God's unchanging written Word, and preaching Bible revelation rather than quoting what he has said. Many Brethren are not in the faith because they try to make the spoken Word reveal the spoken Word when its function is to unfold the revelation of Jesus Christ from God's written Word.
If you follow me on page 29:222-224, you will appreciate what I have just said. The Trumpet that sounded on the Day of Pentecost announced the Pentecostal Jubilee by the wave offering of the resurrected, glorified Messiah, who was the sheaf of the firstfruits of the resurrection of the Old Testament saints that slept. They came out of their graves after His resurrection and appeared to many in Jerusalem (Leviticus 23:9-14; Matthew 27:53; I Corinthians 15:20). He was raised for their justification and also for ours (Romans 4:25). They could not be raised and glorified before He had died to redeem His Bride, and being raised from the dead and glorified, death has no more dominion over them (Hebrews 11:39-40; Romans 6:9; I John 3:8).
What was the Pentecostal Jubilee? It was the restoration of grace and libertyfreedom from the curse of the Law of sin and death (Galatians 3:13; Romans 8:2). Israel as a nation rejected the true Atonement, while most individual Israelites rejected the Trumpet of the Pentecostal Jubilee. This universal rejection of the Abrahamic Promise by His servant nation turned God to us Gentiles to call a Bride for Israel's King Messiah. As Israel bowed to their little brother Joseph, the so-called Jews will "worship before our feet, and know that God has loved us," while as God's servant nation, Israel will bow to the true Church for their King and His Queen are one through the invisible marriage union (Revelation 3:9; John 17:20-23). We are a royal priesthood, kings of the earth, whose subjects will tithe their increase to New Jerusalem.
The Pentecostal Feast of natural Israel lasted fifty days and typed the Gentile dispensation with its seven sabbaths or Church Ages: seven baptisms with the Holy Spirit bringing the saints into Christ's rest by the revelation of a different portion of the Word, and capped by the holy convocation of the fiftieth day, which is where we are today (Leviticus 23:15-21; Revelation 1-3).
As Brother Branham explains, "the Jews [Israelites] rejected that; now the Trumpets is to call them back to . . . the atonement they rejected." Those Seven Trumpets manifested throughout the antitype of the Pentecostal Feast or Gentile dispensation as plagues of natural wars upon Israel to chastise and force the nation back to Canaan for their Atonement. "As it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27-28), this will not be a re-killing of the Sacrifice, but a mourning for the killing of Israel's King-Messiah and Judge (Leviticus 23:26-32; Zechariah 12:10 13:6). The revelation of the Seven Trumpet mysteries will unveil Christ to 144,000 elect Israelites in Israel.
Throughout the Church Ages those seven Gospel Trumpets announced the Coming of Joseph. All who "bowed the knee" of their heart by faith in the certain sound of the Trumpet to their Age were born-again, whilst Israel, who turned their backs and repudiated the Trumpet received a plague as did the Jews, who impersonate them (Revelation 2:9; 3:9).
Brother Branham said, "God had to harden Pharaoh's heart to run them out of Egypt; and He hardened Stalin, Mussolini, and all that to get them back into the Promised Land, where the one hundred and forty-four thousand's supposed to be." If you read Genesis 3:15; 4:9-15; 9:25-27; 10:15-19 and 27:39-41 you will see that Canaan, like all of Cain's descendants, including two of Esau's three wives, is accursed of God. Esau is the father of Edom, "the people against whom the Lord has indignation forever." The Hyskos who took over Egypt in a bloodless coup later conquered England and established the sovereign state of the City of London that has dominion over the whole Japhetic world, through which it dominates much of the Hamitic and Semitic world by the money power and international law. They dominate the remaining nations directly by Judaeo-Communism or indirectly by guns.
They have taken over the United States is a bloodless coup, like it or not. Say Hello to the North American Union.
The "Pharaoh who knew not Joseph" was an Edomite descendant of Esau God set at enmity with Israel. Edom has always been Israel's enemy. They betrayed Jerusalem to Nebuchadnezzar, and when John Hyrcanus forcibly assimilated them they became "Jews," ruling Judea in the days of Christ's first Coming. They betrayed Jerusalem to Rome, which the Talmud calls Edom, and will betray the 144,000 elect Israelites to Rome, which Brother Branham typed as Esau. "Now the ecclesiastical realm has been opened from the natural revival of the old pagan Rome [The Roman Empire became the German Empire and this "natural revival" was the Third Reich], 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; Revelation 9:17-19] 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." [At the end of Laodicea the church put Christ outside the camp when they rejected the revelation of the Seven Seals, which was the revelation of Jesus ChristRevelation 1:1. Now the spirit of antichrist is loosed it need not work persecution through the political realm of dictators, it can now work persecution through the ecclesiastical realm of the Roman Catholic church system, and her once Protestant image. Ultimately, Satan must destroy or prevent people from becoming genuine Christians, because the heirs to the Kingdom are not sons of the first Adam only but joint heirs with the last Adam. Not church-goers only, but genuine Christians . . . including Israel's elect 144,000].
". . . In the cunningness, as He said, "he'd come in like flatteries" [Daniel 11:21, 32, 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 [Rome and her image], bringing them to the slaughter, just like they did the other [Israel] in a hour to call the Bride [Revelation 16:13-16]. 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 church will, but not the Bride. Can't you see? Ministers, can't you see that, brethren?" (ibid p. 23:182-183).
When was the "ecclesiastical spirit" loosed? At Vatican II, twenty years after World War II concurrent with the revelation of the Seven Seals, because at the end of Laodicea, Christ's mediation and the redemption of the Church Age saints, the denominations put Christ outside the camp (Revelation 3:20). Thus evangelism changed from Matthew 28:19 to Revelation 18:4, and the religious spirit, no longer restrained by constitutions and sound laws, is loosed upon Christ's end-time Bride. But she will be taken home and the persecution will come upon the foolish virgin and the 144,000 Israelites. In Newsletter 484 we described how Pope Paul VI, head of the Western division of the Roman Empire traveled to Jerusalem to meet Ecumenical Patriarch Athenogoras I, head of the Eastern division (ibid 24:189-219; The latest news (above) regarding the primacy of Rome confirms Daniel 2:43, "they shall not cleave together"). Under the auspices of the United Nations the 200 million demons tried to reunite the Western and Eastern political divisions of the Roman world empire symbolized by the feet of iron and miry clay on the image of Nebuchadnezzar's dream (Daniel 2:40-45). Newsletter 386 reported how two Khazars Jews, Eisenhower and Khrushchev, tried in the UN to reach agreement, and talks between Putin and George II earlier this month came to nothing this week. Thank God, the little Bride has made Herself ready. It won't be long.
The persecution brought upon Israel when they were blinded by their rabbis will soon come upon foolish virgin blinded by their ministers (Revelation 3:18; 13:15-18). Demons cannot be seen, but we can see what they are doing: Jesus and Brother Branham said false Christs and false teachers would be so close to the faith, they would almost deceive the very elect if it were possible. They believe and quote the "letter" of the Message, and can be distinguished from the saints only by their revelation of the Word.
Edomites have been persecuting blood Israelites since Esau sold his birthright. Stalin was himself a Khazar, rumoured to have been an illegitimate Rothschild. Churchill and Roosevelt were also Khazars. Churchill led the world to war, and Roosevelt shattered the Constitution. Brother Branham said, "There's coming a time in this nation, to where this nation is going to exercise all the power that the beast had before (which was pagan Rome, when it become papal Rome. See?) that this nation will do that" (Look Away to Jesus, 6:45-46).
Truth is stranger than fiction, and often not what we have been taught. Lies promoted as truth by the media, Hollywood and educators become conventional wisdom. Deceptions include the sinking of the USS Maine and the SS Sussex, German aggression against Poland, Japan's unprovoked "surprise" attack on Pearl Harbour, the Gulf of Tonkin incident, the Big Lie of an Islamic link to 9/11, Iraq's WMD, a nuclear Iran, three holocausts each of six million Jews in just the twentieth century. Speaking of the Jewish takeover of Germany known as the Weimar Republic, the Jew Joseph Goebbels observed, "The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the State." Facts never interfere with a political agenda so old lies are recycled until those who knew the truth have passed away and lies become truth.
Truth is the enemy of an apostate once-Christian world overcome by chutzpah in an unbloody coup unrecognized by the blind and indefensible Laodiceans who have rejected Truth (John 14:6). Apathy toward truth has made truth an unwelcome stranger. Lucifer's totalitarian one world government now swallowing our world is built upon a foundation of lies enforced by corrupt legislation and Machiavellian case law. When Israel rejected God's promise to Abraham at Kadesh Barnea where the ten spies gave a bad report, God put the nation under the curse of His Law, which was righteousness to which they could not attain. Since the churches have rejected Abraham's promise, God has allowed the Gentiles to come under the curse of man-made Talmudic law, which is unrighteousness.
From the waving of the sheaf of firstfruits on Nisan 16 to the Pentecostal Jubilee or first resurrection is fifty days, and from the going up of the Church to Israel's Feast of Trumpets of Leviticus 23, and from the waving of the first ripe sheaf to the Day of Atonement is seven months (ibid 30:229, 242). Brother Branham said seven sabbaths when he meant seven months and corrected himself in C.O.D. 965:204-205.
"It's between that Sixth Trumpet (and the Sixth Trumpet and the Sixth Seal sounds at the same time), [the persecution of Israel under the Sixth Trumpet continues from the Armistice of World War I through World War II to World War III under the manifestation of the Sixth Seal], and between the Sixth Trumpet and the Seventh Trumpet [as they appear in the Bible, that is, between Revelation 9 and Revelation 11:15], there is a prophet to appear before the Gentiles [in Revelation 10:7] to call the people back to the original Pentecostal doctrine [Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11]; and the two witnesses of Revelations 11 appear to the Jews to send them to Jesus, while the Church is being taken upall of them prophets. Amen. The Word of the Lord cannot be broken. It won't be a denomination. Do you see it?
Read in your book here and see if that between the Sixth and Seventh Trumpet [i.e. Revelation 9 and Revelation 11:15] isn't injected in there with the Jews [Israelites] being called out. Between the Sixth [Revelation 6:12-17] and Seventh Plague [Revelation 78:1], we come over with that one hundred and forty-four thousand [Revelation 11:1-13] (you remember that?), which was between that. Do you remember between the Sixth Seal and the Seventh Seal, there was a calling out of the one hundred and forty-four thousand [i.e. Revelation 7:1-8]. You remember that? Now, there's where these trumpets [the Feast of Trumpets or revelation of Israel's Seven Trumpet mysteries by the Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4; Matthew 24:31; Revelation 11:3-12] come in, right there (See?) and persecution of horses loosed on there [in the "ecclesiastical realm" because Satan is cast down to earth at this time and incarnate in Rome's PopeRevelation 12:7-17]. (ibid 34:266-267).
Sin or unbelief in the revealed Word of God is a terrible thing. "For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and those who are led of them are destroyed" (Isaiah 9:16). It is not "Jews as a group" as our persecutors claim, but "leaders" themselves cause "Jews as a group" to err. Their "leaders" rewrote the Old Testament, changed the meaning of language to pervert the New Testament and insinuated themselves into positions of influence in apostate denominational institutions and as rabbinical "leaders" blinded their people to God's unchanging Word, denominational "leaders" have in turn blinded their people as Jesus foretold (II Timothy 3:7-10; 4:4; Revelation 3:17). We are not to be led of men, but "receive their word with all readiness of mind, then search the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so" (Acts 17:11), and make God's Word our Absolute. nl485.htm
Homework: Please review Newsletters 259 and 471 in which we spoke of "the land of the north" whence the house of Israel and the house of Judah will be gathered (Isaiah 11:11-12; 27:12-13; Jeremiah 3:18). And Newsletter 335 and The Blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are Not in which we have discussed the Feast of the Trumpets.
