Bible Believers' Newsletter 514
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
Brother Branham said that when the Lord revealed a vision of some future happening and he recognized its manifestation in real time that he had to wait until the setting was precisely as portrayed in the vision before beginning to act out his part. And so it is with the Bible, the inspired record of countless visions. This week we will consider Jerusalem in the immediate future as pictured in Zechariah 12 and 14, and consider how the actions of George II, Shimon Peres, the Palestinians, the Vatican, Israel's neighbours, Russia and the USA are working together to bring the vision into real time (Romans 8:28).
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.
US accused of using 'Kangaroo Court' to try Men accused of Role in 9/11
February 12, 2008 The United States military announced yesterday that it was bringing death penalty charges against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and five other men suspected of orchestrating the September 11 attacks . . . The decision to use Mohammed and the others as guinea-pigs in a constitutionally dubious legal proceeding is likely to trigger a firestorm of anti-American sentiment in the Islamic world and spark fractious domestic debate in an already highly charged presidential election year.
Concerns were raised last night of political interference by the White House in the military's decision to go to trial in the middle of an election campaign in which the Republican frontrunner, John McCain, has made the fight against al-Qa'ida central to his election bid. . . Full story: truthout.org
Comment: McCain's commission is to provoke the Islamic world to retaliate against aggression from the puppet states of the City of London in order to neuter political Islam and political Zionism in a brief World War III, and advance the setting up of Lucifer's totalitarian one world government with a unified church and monetary system under the direction of the puppeteer. Ultimately national identity and national pride, must be destroyed before the concept of one world government can succeed, and all religion, in particular Christianity, must be destroyed and replaced by the pure Luciferian doctrine.
Williams, Sharia and a mea culpa . . . of Sorts
February 13, 2008 It is likely that people will look back at the last few days in Britain as a landmark in its debate about multiculturalism. Challenged to accept the supposed inevitability of Islamic law (or sharia), the public voice here has responded with a resounding "No".
The trigger came last Friday in a lecture delivered by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams. Williams called for the "constructive accommodation" of parts of sharia in Britain in the form of "plural jurisdiction". His idea was that Muslims should be free to choose whether they could bypass the English legal system in favour of Islamic courts to resolve disputes such as divorce.
Debates about multiculturalism, not least those about religion, Islam and the law, tend to divide opinion in liberal societies such as Britain, but not on this occasion. Rejection, even condemnation, of Williams's views has been close to unanimous among political leaders, commentators and community figures alike. . . Full story: Canberra Times
Comment: The Church of England promotes the anti-Christian oxymoron, "unity in diversity." The Archbishop should read his Bible:
The objective of "multiculturalism," which is Orwellian doublespeak for miscegenationaccursed by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacobis to divide and conquer Adam's race by imposing genocide in the bed, destroying racial and national integrity as Esau marred his inheritance (Genesis 9:25; 10:15-19; 26:34-35).
This charade is a masterstroke by the 'hidden hand' to heighten division between Islam and the colonies of 'the City' and highlights the apostasy of the once Christian world. Last year a pagan Hindu priest opened the United States Congress in prayer, and this week a "pagan pantomime" opened Australia's Parliament with a "half-naked tribal romp." Historically, whenever a people were defeated the religion of the victor has been imposed on the conquered. This is about to repeat (Revelation 13:15-18).
Don't let Facts spoil the Day
February 9, 2008 Bringing Them Home claimed "not one indigenous family has escaped the effects of forcible removal". Hence it recommended that virtually every person in Australia who claimed to be an Aborigine was entitled to a substantial cash handout. . . (All government forms ask, "Are you an Aborigine or Torres Strait Islander"? Is this to qualify for a Divide and Conquer Lottery in which every name wins $500,000? - Ed). The problem with the Bringing Them Home report is not its logic, but its facts. As regards NSW, the story of the Stolen Generations was largely formed in 1981 by the historian Peter Read. . . Bringing Them Home did no original research of its own in NSW. Instead, it relied upon Read's writings. . . Full story: theaustralian.news.com.au (from The Fabrication of Aboriginal History, Volume One, by Professor Keith Windschuttle).
Comment: In last week's Newsletter entitled, "Divide and Conquer," we wrote:
In Federal Parliament on Wednesday Australia's Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, with in-principle support from the Opposition, will say "sorry" to the "stolen generation" of Aborigines. Patterned after the lucrative holocaust reparations schemes, this was orchestrated by Jewish lawyer Ed. Fagan, who is proceeded only by his reputation. Animal emotion rather than thoughtful common sense has guided the decisions of self-serving politicians, eager to commit to spending ever more borrowings from the Banksters while destroying the nation and the Aborigine people.
As I write I am listening to the speeches in Parliament.
So-called Christians have been rendered powerless by their disobedience to Acts 17:11; Romans 3:3; Galatians 1:8-9; II Timothy 2:15; I Thessalonians 5:21; Revelation 22:18-19, etc., and as Paul said, "If any man will be ignorant, let him be ignorant." Australians are thus ignorant. We are a subject nation as the "mother country," Britain, has been a subject nation since 1688. . . and we know it not.
Today the nation has further humbled itself at the altar of our unnamed oppressors by the thoughtless words of groveling Prime Minister Rudd and Opposition leader Brendan Nelson, whose cowardly appeal to emotion is built firmly upon ignorance rather than fact. Australians do not read and are therefore not equipped to think. Today they have accepted the yoke of oppression with loud acclamation and assumed the mantle of permanent subjugation borne by Germany. Today the 'Hidden Hand' has divided and conquered this nation, which will be evermore paying 'hush money' to its Aborigine peoples who have been hoodwinked by their unnamed oppressors who will treat them mercilessly as they have the native peoples of all the former colonies since independence and release from Western law and oversight was imposed following World War II.
Rather than investigate, "think", understand and respond with brave, selfless honesty toward all Australians by declaring truth that would expose the scoundrels who have devised and imposed this hoax, the leaders of the three major political parties in Australia's Hegelian sham democracy have capitulated to an unnamed alien power the Lord God told Moses He has set "at enmity" with Adam's race (Genesis 3:15).
Job 38:2, "Who is this who darkens counsel by words without knowledge? Those behind this scheme to irretrievably divide and conquer Australia do not believe the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, for they would persuade Aborigine Australians that they are alternatively a 40,000 or 60,000-year-old race.
From his book, Still Not Sorry, Andrew Bold writes in the Herald Sun (February 8, 2008):
In Victoria, for instance, the state Stolen Generations Taskforce concluded there had been "no formal policy for removing children." Ever.
In the Northern Territory, the Federal Court found no sign of "any policy of removal of part-Aboriginal children such as that alleged."
In Tasmania, the Stolen Generations Alliance admitted "there were no removal policies as such."
In South Australia, the Supreme Court last year found no government policy to steal Aboriginal children there, either. Rather, stealing black children had been "without legal authority, beyond power and contrary to authoritative legal advice."

Day Trip to Auschwitz for Pupils from every School
February 4, 2008 Two sixth-formers from every school in England are to visit Auschwitz to learn about the Holocaust, under a government-funded initiative to help to ensure that the lessons of the Nazi genocide live on with a new generation.
Jim Knight, the Schools Minister, wants the teenagers who take part to educate their classmates and communities in turn by giving them their own accounts of the death camp in Poland where more than one million Jews, Roma, Sinti, gay, disabled and black people were put to death.
The Government will fund the greater majority of the cost of each student's trip. While their school must find £100, the Education Department will find the remaining £200 per trip over the next three years. . . The visits will be preceded by a seminar in the UK, where students, aged 16 to 18, will hear testimony from a survivor of the camp. Following their return, they will attend a second seminar to reflect on the experience. . . the scheme, which has been piloted since 2006, will now be on a permanent footing receiving £1.5 million of government funding a year until 2011, with a promise of further funding in the future. . . Full story: timesonline.co.uk
Comment: This is freedom to think and regurgitate Big Brother's brain washing. What discipline will be meted to inquiring students whose "reflection on the experience" does not agree with the holocaust catechism, or causes them to think for themselves and discover historic truth? Thedor Herzl, Max Nordau, Ben Hecht, many other Jewish luminaries, Encyclopaedia Britannica (1902) or Protocol No, 12, if read, would expose the folly of Britain's Zionist invertebrate poodle government.
UN Calls Emergency Meeting on UFO's as Russia prepares for Total War
February 14, 2008 Interesting reports are emerging from the West today that state the United Nations on February 12 held an emergency meeting among Member Nations growing ever more concerned over the rapidly rising reports of UFO's being sighted around the World. . . as President Putin has served notice to the West that the Russian Nation will begin targeting NATO allied Nations siding with the United States in its effort to encircle the Russias with its nuclear missiles.
Putin is said to be further enraged over the West's planned supporting of the breakaway Serbian province of Kosovo as an independent Nation, and which the Russian Leader has termed "immoral and illegal", and which Russia has stated they will not recognize. . . Full story: whatdoesitmean.com
Comment: Joel 2:30-31 and Acts 2:19-20 prophesied such sights prior to the earthquakes, causing hearts to fail with foreboding of what is coming upon the world. Speaking of "flying saucers," Brother Branham said, "Russia. . . never display their best; we don't either." He called them "investigating judgment angels"not supernatural or extra terrestrial beings but signs of impending judgment.

Rule by Fear or Rule by Law?
February 4, 2008 Since 9/11, and seemingly without the notice of most Americans, the federal government has assumed the authority to institute martial law, arrest a wide swath of dissidents (citizen and noncitizen alike), and detain people without legal or constitutional recourse in the event of "an emergency influx of immigrants in the US, or to support the rapid development of new programs."
Beginning in 1999, the government has entered into a series of single- bid contracts with Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) to build detention camps at undisclosed locations within the United States. The government has also contracted with several companies to build thousands of railcars, some reportedly equipped with shackles, ostensibly to transport detainees.
According to diplomat and author Peter Dale Scott, the KBR contract is part of a Homeland Security plan titled ENDGAME, which sets as its goal the removal of "all removable aliens" and "potential terrorists". . .
Sect. 1042 of the 2007 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), "Use of the Armed Forces in Major Public Emergencies," gives the executive the power to invoke martial law. For the first time in more than a century, the president is now authorized to use the military in response to "a natural disaster, a disease outbreak, a terrorist attack or any other condition in which the President determines that domestic violence has occurred to the extent that state officials cannot maintain public order."
The Military Commissions Act of 2006, rammed through Congress just before the 2006 midterm elections, allows for the indefinite imprisonment of anyone who donates money to a charity that turns up on a list of "terrorist" organizations, or who speaks out against the government's policies. The law calls for secret trials for citizens and noncitizens alike.
Also in 2007, the White House quietly issued National Security Presidential Directive 51 (NSPD-51), to ensure "continuity of government" in the event of what the document vaguely calls a "catastrophic emergency." Should the president determine that such an emergency has occurred, he and he alone is empowered to do whatever he deems necessary to ensure "continuity of government." This could include everything from canceling elections to suspending the Constitution to launching a nuclear attack. Congress has yet to hold a single hearing on NSPD-51.
US Rep. Jane Harman, D-Venice (Los Angeles County) has come up with a new way to expand the domestic "war on terror." Her Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 (HR1955). . . A clue as to where Harman's commission might be aiming is the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, a law that labels those who "engage in sit-ins, civil disobedience, trespass, or any other crime in the name of animal rights" as terrorists. Other groups in the crosshairs could be anti-abortion protesters, anti-tax agitators, immigration activists, environmentalists, peace demonstrators, Second Amendment rights supporters ... the list goes on and on. According to author Naomi Wolf, the National Counterterrorism Center holds the names of roughly 775,000 "terror suspects" with the number increasing by 20,000 per month. Full story: sfgate.com
Comment: Laws enacted by these democratically preselected Congressional thugs give new meaning the old hymn, "One of them, one of them; I'm so glad that I can say I'm one of them!" As quoted in Newsletter 513, Brother Branham warned of martial law in 1963.
Depression Risk might force US to buy Assets
New York February 12, 2008 Fear that a hobbled banking sector may set off another Great Depression could force the US government and Federal Reserve to take the unprecedented step of buying a broad range of assets, including stocks, according to one of the most bearish market analysts.
That extreme scenario, which would aim to stave off deflation and stabilize the economy, is evolving as the base case for Bernard Connolly, global strategist at Banque AIG in London. . . Full story: reuters.com
Comment: The US$25 trillion question is, "In the absence of gunboats, who will accept the Fed's ticket money in payment for hard assets?"
Early Reports suggest that Bush defied the Supreme Court
February 14, 2008 At 03:26am on 14th February, the Editor received the following message from the source: "It has been a horrendous day. My intelligence & official sources inform me that the meeting referenced previously was a meeting of the US Supreme Court and other high officials, and, last night, they voted against Bush Jr. and ordered him to pay [the Wanta trillions - Ed]. Of course, that didn't happen and I'm now told that [a party deleted by the Editor] are moving to force his hand." We are also advised that "several power groups in the United States are taking very serious action. . ."
• The Group of Eight (which means effectively nine, as previously explained) agreed (minus the United States) to impose sanctions on the United States if the Lee Wanta Settlement and the other payments are not released immediately. The date on which the release was to have taken place was last Saturday 9th February.
• On that date, Russian military aircraft buzzed the Nimitz as widely publicised. Russia is a member of the Group of Eight and is livid that it has been repeatedly lied to and cravenly double-crossed by the White House.
• The same applies to all the other G-8 countries, including the United Kingdom.
• For unexplained reasons (or rather, the piece of the puzzle may be missing) the deadline for compliance was set at noon EST on Monday 11th February. When that deadline came and went, the four tankers sitting half a day out from Saudi Arabia were ordered not to proceed on to the United States, but to return to their Saudi port. . .

Venezuela Halts Oil Sales to Exxon Mobil
Caracas, Venezuela, February 12, 2008 Venezuela's state oil company said Tuesday that it has stopped selling crude to Exxon Mobil Corp. in response to the US oil company's drive to use the courts to seize billions of dollars in Venezuelan assets. . . Venezuela is the United States' fourth largest oil supplier.
A British court issued an injunction last month temporarily freezing up to $12 billion of (Petroleos de Venezuela SA) PDVSA's assets. Exxon Mobil also has secured an "order of attachment" from US District Court in Manhattan on about $300 million in cash held by PDVSA. A hearing to confirm the order is scheduled for Wednesday. . .

Germany the First Country to admit Clandestine Chemtrails Operations
The TV news report states that "the military planes of the German Federal Army are manipulating our climate; this is what the weather researchers are presuming and their suspicions are confirmed." "We can state with a 97% certainty that we have on our hands chemical trails (chemtrails) comprised by fine dust containing polymers and metals, used to disrupt radar signals". . .

God is not the Author of Confusion
In each of the seven Church Ages God's Message promised revelation and an assurance of blessing to the Spiritual Church, and exposed the evils of the nominal church, calling its members to repentance. Paul distinguished the two in I Corinthians 14:33, "God is not the god of confusion, but of peace, as in all Churches of the saints." Not in all the churches, but "in all Churches of the saints."
A reader writes, "I went to Oxford, Mississippi in 1956 as pastor of North Oxford Baptist Church. Oxford is the home of Ole Miss, the University of Mississippi. I learned a vital lesson very quickly. When you go to speak to a group of people on any given subject, you had better know how that group defines their terminology, or you will be saying one thing, but they will be hearing something entirely different. Now that is confusionconfusion within the same language."
"That is what happened within the language of Babel and led to the scattering of the people, ending their building program. What happened at Babel is representative of what happens within the language of any nation that leaves the Lord God out of its life. This is happening in the good ole US of A. Confusion is one of the primary means the Lord uses when He starts judging a nation as was evident with Israel throughout the Old Testament".
"Today confusion reigns worldwide in every facet of life. There is moral confusion, religious confusion, political confusion, economic confusion, social confusion, racial confusion, spiritual confusion, theological confusion, ethical confusion, sexual confusion, eschatological confusion, and educational confusion, with intent to divide and conquer. Confusion is rife within denominational circles over interpretations of the Bible because people have not bothered to "receive the Word with all readiness of mind, then search the Scriptures whether those things were so," and because they do not understand that God interprets His Word by bringing it to pass, or by sending a prophet with warning and a way of escape before judgment.
As God is not the author of confusion, it is evident that men have departed from His Word, which is His eternal thoughts expressed. As He is merciful, God sent and vindicated the prophet William Branham, whose ministry "turned the heart of His children back to the faith of their apostolic fathers and finished the mystery of God before He smites earth with a curse" (Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:7). Sadly, people are unwilling to receive correction although to refuse His Word is to reject the Holy Spirit, thus the world now is "held in store for burning, and reserved for judgment and the destruction of godless men" (II Peter 3:7).
"Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through faith in our risen sacrifice" (John 14:6). This Truth separates the elect from nominal Christians and is the Absolute that isolates us from all religion.
Jesus has given His end-time Bride the assurance that we will enter the Millennium without death (I Corinthians 15:51-52). "To he who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me in My throne, as I also conquered and am seated with My Father in His throne" (Revelation 3:21). Heaven is God's throne; earth is Jesus' throne and inheritance as Son of David (Isaiah 66:1). When Jesus was glorified, He was granted all authority in heaven and earth until such time as death is abolished in the lake of Fire (I Corinthians 15:23-28; Hebrews 2:14-15; I John 3:8, 14): that is, until after the White Throne Judgment, the regeneration of heavens and earth and the dawn of the eighth day (Matthew 22:44; Revelation 21:1-3).
Although the Body of Christ comprises many members, it is not complete until the last saint predestinated to this end-time Bride is baptized into the Family. Not until then can the first resurrection and our full adoption or glorification of the Body commence. "Adoption" is the coming of age of a son announced in a public ceremony in which his accountability and maturity are recognized and his word acknowledged as equal in authority as the word of his father. Until then his authority is no greater than that of a servant.
The natural types the Spiritual. As the appearance of the Shekinah (or Pillar of Cloud or Fire) at their dedication signified God had taken residence in the Tabernacle in the wilderness and in King Solomon's Temple, its later manifestation signified His residence in the Spoken Word Temple made without hands, Jesus Christ and His Bride, and will shine over us as the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:22-27). After His baptism in the Jordan, Jesus was publicly adopted, anointed Messiah and dedicated as the Temple of the living God when He was overshadowed by the Shekinah in the Form of a dove and a Voice from heaven announced, "This is My beloved Son in whom I am pleased to dwell in" (Matthew 3:13-17). This typed the birth and dedication of His mystic Body or elect Church as the living "temple of the Holy Spirit" on the Day of Pentecost when what looked like tongues of fire settled upon each of the initial saints" (I Corinthians 6:19; Acts 2:1-3).
Because all of the New Testament saints comprise one Body, you were accounted in that Body when it was inaugurated in the Upper Room. We are waiting for the last member to recognize their part of the Word and take their place in the Body, which will be their new birth or adoption as a Son or Daughter of God, yet a spirit babe. The three stages in adoption are new birth, maturity through proven experience in the faith, and the body change or glorification.
Jesus was again overshadowed by the Shekinah on Mount Transfiguration, and a Voice said, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am pleased to dwell in: listen to Him" (Matthew 17:5). This further stage of Christ's adoption is equivalent to your becoming an elder in the faith, a mentor by example and by word (Hebrews 5:14).
Jesus' glorification was His full adoption. Prior to His death and resurrection in glorified flesh His authority was limited to what He heard from the Father or what was revealed to Him by vision (John 5:19; 8:26), but after He had cleansed the heavenly sanctuary of the sins of the Old Testament saints He was granted equal authority with the Father (Matthew 28:18). Now because we are all members of one Body, as soon as the sleeping saints begin to receive their full adoption in the first resurrection, we who are alive and remain being "potentially" glorified will have all power on earth like Adam before the Fall, and the 'third pull' will operate by our faith to meet our needs in the manifestation of the Sons of God.
What blessed assurance to those who know who they are. There will be no confusion in the Bride, the 'third pull' will be the end of all doubt, and Satan being cast down to earth, the "latter rain" of the Holy Spirit will fall upon all flesh"the just and the unjust"as it did under the "former rain." The latter rain being the harvest rain, everyone will manifest the nature of the seed they have sown in their soul, and there will be no disguising their true character. Revelation 22:11-12, "Let the unjust be unjust still: let the filthy still be filthy: and the righteous still do right: and let the saint still be holy".
This will be a time of unprecedented global catastrophe. Earthquakes of a magnitude greater than any since man was created will rend and shake the earth, darkening the sun and sending tidal waves around the globe (Revelation 16:18; Luke 21:25); volcanic eruptions will cause the moon to appear blood red (Revelation 6:12), and the destruction of the Dome of the Rock will precipitate the "hot" stage of World War III, causing men's hearts to fail for fear of nuclear annihilation (Luke 21:26).
This will be the commencement of the Tribulation, the resurrection of the sleeping saints and the manifestation of the Sons of God. The denominations will come together under Rome and oppose Christ's Bride. This will be the time of the "squeeze", when what we say God will donot for a public display as it was in Pentecostbut to supply our needs; to vindicate that we are the Sons of God and to imbue us with faith for translation grace so that after a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit our little hunted and persecuted group will go to be with Jesus.
Hear His Words of assurance: "Behold, I am coming without delay, bringing My recompense with Me, to repay every one for what he has done. I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end" (Revelation 22:13). These Divine titles, also assumed by our Lord Jesus in Revelation 1:8, 17 and 21:6, confirm He is the supreme Deity: Christ is the mystery of God revealed. Jesus of the New Testament is Jehovah of the Old Testament; He is the Lord God Almighty manifest in virgin-born flesh. The One before whom and after whom there is no God, and no Trinity of gods.
In less than 50-days after earthquakes sink Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300-400 mile segment of earth beneath the Pacific, and split the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, Christ's end-time Bride will change in the atoms and unite with the resurrected saints to meet the Lord in the Air.
A throne is a seat having a footstool. "Jesus Messiah must reign from God's throne until He has put all enemies under His feet" or footstool at the final judgment on earth. This heralds the end of time that will take the saints into the eighth day, which will be eternity in a renewed heaven and renewed earth (I Corinthians 15:24-25). God has dominion over all things from His seat or throne in heaven. But we should not imagine He requires furniture, for God is a Spirit and without form. Heaven consists of the Word, which is His eternal thinking or Logos: Jerusalem that is above, the womb or mother of all His elect. Jesus' dominion or throne will be a renewed earth with the saints of all ages. This will be the "material restoration of all things forfeited by the first Adam and his descendants which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began" (Acts 3:21). Together we are God manifest in the material form of His glorified Family. The "saved" will worship God throughout eternity in the form of glorified, vindicated Word: the last Adam and His seed (Isaiah 53:10).
Jesus has promised the overcomer he will sit with Him in His seat or throne throughout the Millennium (Revelation 3:21). In that time "we will build houses, and inhabit them, plant vineyards, and eat their fruit. We shall not build, and another inhabit, or plant and another eat: for as are the days of a tree are My people, and My elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the Blessed of the Lord, and their offspring (or children in the Gospel) with them" (Isaiah 65:21-23). However, in the new earth we will not build for in eternity everything is eternal and eternally prepared for us.
Following the Fall, Satan usurped dominion over the kingdom of this earth, which God created for Michael, who is Christ; Satan established his earthly headquarters in Babylon, where he was worshipped in the stead of God. When the Medes and Persians conquered Babylon, Attalus her priest-king fled and reestablished the seat of idolatry in Pergamum where it prospered outside the Roman Empire. Attalus III died without heir in 133BC, willing his kingdom to Rome, and in 63BC Julius Caesar became Pontiff Maximus of the Babylonish religion. The title passed on to succeeding emperors until AD375 when Gratian, who determined to be an orthodox Christian emperor, refused it, and the pope took the headship the emperor rejected. Today there is still a pontiff in the world and he is truly Pontiff Maximus. He wears a triple crown and resides in Rome.
In Revelation 17 God no longer refers to Pergamos as Satan's seat, nor does He say that is where Satan dwells. His throne room is no longer in Iraq or in Pergamos; it is in Mystery Babylon, a city on seven hills whose head is antichrist for he has usurped the position of Christ who alone can forgive sins. When Satan is cast out, he will incarnate the pope, and Rome will rule the world as foretold in Daniel and Revelation.
Satan's objective is to rule from Jerusalem, which is now the spiritual equivalent of Sodom and Egypt (Revelation 11:8). Isaiah 14:12-14, "How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, who laid the nations low! For you said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will preside on the Mount of the Assembly, in the far north: I will rise above the heights of the clouds; I will rival the Most High." (II Thessalonians 2:4).
Hoping to recover his legacy of failure, one of his children, George II, has set a timetable for peace between Israelis and Palestinians, whose land these self-styled Jews stole in the providence of God so that in Daniel's Seventieth Week genuine blood Israelites can return to the Promised Land for redemption. Hamas, which was for years secretly funded by Israel's secret services hoping to encourage Muslim fanaticism that would divide and conquer the Palestinians, was not invited to the Annapolis Peace Conference, although it was elected in far more honest elections than the American president.
On the one hand, his Middle East visit seems to have given Israel fresh impetus to continue its expansion into Palestine, and on the other, increased the pressure on Iran as Israeli President Shimon Peres all but confirmed. His timetable calls for peace by the end of this year, indicating God's timetable for Los Angeles may be April 2009.
Zechariah 12:1-3, "The burden of the Word of the Lord concerning Israel. THUS SAITH THE LORD, (the Sustainer as well as the Creator) who continually stretches forth the heavens, and founded the earth, and formed the spirit of man within him (by means of which He can energize his thoughts and actions to accomplish His purposes). Behold, I will make Jerusalem and Judah a bowl of trembling to all adjoining nations, in the siege against Jerusalem. On that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all peoples; all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against her."
It appears the confederacy against the Jews and the Israelites, with whom they are conflated by the ignorant, will be almost universal and that George II's timetable for peace is actually setting up the players in this end game. Brother Branham said, Jews in the United States at this time "won't escape".
The phrase, "burden themselves with it," refers to the custom for youths in Palestine to test their strength by lifting up a massive stone. In Matthew 21:44 Messiah was this rock of offense, on whose revelation the Jews "fell, and were broken"; but that Rock shall fall on Antichrist, who "burdens himself with it" by his assault on the restored state, and "grind him to powder."
There is only one true Israel. When the natural branches were broken off through apostasy, the Gentile branches were grafted in. Now that the Gentiles have succumbed to apostasy, they too will be pruned, and the natural branches grafted back (Romans 11:17-32). Zechariah 12:9-14 is Christ's parousia Coming to Israel after the end of our dispensation. Ezekiel 38 and 39, the ministry of the two Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11, and the first three and a half years of Daniel's Seventieth Week are condensed into this chapter.
Shortly after the earthquakes sink Los Angeles and split the Mount of Olives, destroying the Dome of the Rock, the Muslims will attack Israel with Russian support, and Russia will invade and occupy mainland United States. Brother Branham said:
"The Russians put up a sputnik that we can control nothing about it, five hundred miles off of the earth; and could put a half a dozen of them over the United States in the next thirty minutes, and call in and say, "Surrender, or be a bunch of ashes in a few minutes." They can do it. There isn't nothing that we can do to stop them. It's in their hands of bloodless, heartless, ungodly communists. That's what God uses to make sin come to light. Certainly is. If you'll read the Bible, Russia's got to do that according to Revelations. All right, you prophecy teachers might different from that, but just wait till it's over. Russia is put here for that very purpose. The Bible said so. . ."
"What's going to happen? There's a sputnik up there. And what would happen? The nation would surrender, of course; that's the only decent thing the government could do."
Then what happens? Wave after wave of ship loads of soldiers; wave after wave of airplanes would land in this nation. The women would be ravished in the streets. What would you do? It belongs to them. Kicked out of your home, they'll take it over.
What'll happen to you young girls, and you young men, and all of you at that time? Sin has to be paid for. No matter what nation it is, or who it is, it does it, individually, or a nation, it's going to be paid for. And a bunch of brutal, ungodly, whisker-jawed, communistic soldiers would grab your wives and ravish them, your young girls. And you'd stand and like it; there's nothing you can do about it.
What causes that? Because you have listened to such stuff as these television programs on rock-and-roll and sin, and some cold formal preacher not able to interpret the supernatural. The handwriting is on the wall. That's right. And we are weighed in the balance and found wanting.
When could that take place? Before daylight in the morning. Who's going to stop it? Try it. The Bible says it'll happen. But let me tell you, that'll never touch the Church of the living God, we'll be gone by that time" (Handwriting on the Wall, p. 10:77, 84-90).
Don't blame Russia. It is the USA that has sinned. Russia and the USA are each controlled by the thugs that invaded Russia from New York City in 1917. When the Bolsheviks were finally thrown out of Russia, Wall Street persuaded the US government to welcome them as persecuted Jewish immigrants. Rockefeller positioned the smartest of these scoundrels in the bureaucracy, but once they got their hands on the levers of power they became his competitors to usurp his dominion over the USA.
I believe God's destruction of the forces of Russia and her allies on the mountains of Israel will break the morale of her troops occupying the USA, making it possible for the Pope, who will have united a federation of world religions, to command the invaders to return to their own country (Ezekiel 38-39; Revelation 13:1-10). Having restored peace, the nations will implore the now incarnate pope to be the first president of Lucifer's totalitarian one world government. He will accept what Jesus refused and rule to the consummation (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:11-18; Matthew 4:8-10).
Zechariah 14:1-2, "Behold, the day of the Lord comes, and Jerusalem's spoil shall be divided in her midst. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city".
Unlike Gog and Magog in Zechariah 12 and Ezekiel 38-39, who will perish on the mountains without gaining possession of the city, these seize and take plunder, and expel Jews from residency in East Jerusalem, which will become the capitol of a Palestinian state. However, Jews will be free to enter the city. In this further development Rome will establish the capital of her world government in Jerusalem as prophesied in Daniel 9:26 and 11:40-45. Israel's first Prime Minister, David ben Gurion, who knew the plans of the Illuminati said, "With the exception of the USSR as a federal Eurasian State, all other continents will become united in a world alliance, at whose disposal will be an international police force. All armies will be abolished and there will be no more wars. In Jerusalem, the United Nations (a truly United Nations) will build a shrine of the prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the supreme court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah" (Look Magazine, January 16, 1962).
Jerusalem will become an international city as set forth by the United Nations with the "holy" places under Vatican authority as negotiated by Shimon Peres and reported in previous Newsletters and East Jerusalem the capital of Palestine as agreed in the plans for partition.
As we watch the world falling apart and see the treachery of national leaders secretly working with the 'Hidden Hand' to merge all nations into Lucifer's totalitarian one world government, we recall the words Brother Branham sang, "Gentile days are numbered with horrors encumbered," and know there can be no restoration of common sense and Common Law, and no reformation of church or state, for Christ revealed the Seven Seals after the close of His mediation as Son of God. Now, "because He is in the office of Son of man, He has been given authority to execute judgment" (John 5:27). So we live in a time of desperation, bringing our lives under preeminence to the revealed Word and praying earnestly for that day of sweet release, knowing the assurance of the 'third pull' will not manifest until the "latter rain" causes the 'squeeze' and national force requires our worship complies with the World Council of Churches.
Despite George Orwell's newspeak and doublespeak employed by our shifty politicians and alien-controlled media, Christians are not confused within their own language because we filter our understanding from Genesis to Revelation to ensure we have the mind of Christ. New believers unfamiliar with certain of the terms we employ will feel at home as they acquaint themselves with the written Word of God's Holy Bible and the spoken Word of His Prophet. Paul admonished, "I appeal to you, brethren, by the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, that there be no dissensions or factions among you; but that you be perfectly united in the same mind and in the same judgment" (I Corinthians 1:10). The function of this end-time Message is to gather Christ's Bride together in "the unity of the faith" (Ephesians 4:13) for "the manifestation of the Sons of God" (Romans 8:19) and the translation (I Thessalonians 4:16).
If you have a righteous desire, you will become desperate, relegating peripheral things to the sidelines until that which is foremost is accomplished. Paul said, "Everything I once thought eminently worthwhile I have cast aside as loss so that I can put my hope and trust in Christ alone. I count everything as loss in comparison with the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For His sake I have incurred the loss of all things and count them worthless and detestable dung, that I may gain Christ" (Philippians 3:7-8). To avoid double minded confusion we must forego undue affection for anything that anchors us to this world. If you have worldly possessions, ensure you master them and that they are not master and anchor of your soul. nl514.htm
