Bible Believers' Newsletter 686
"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.
Some time ago we released our PowerPoint presentation, The Second Coming of Christ, which is freely available on CD to subscribers to this Newsletter. Last week we uploaded an internet version of The Second Coming of Christ in which the content has been rearranged so as to be more readily appreciated by those who love the Lord but have no knowledge of or experience in the Message of God's Prophet, William Branham. This is of course not the literal, physical return of the glorified Man from Galilee, whose precious feet will not touch this earth until the millennium; this will introduce your friends and loved ones to Christ's 'parousia' Coming promised throughout the New Testament. We encourage you to view the presentation and invite denominational Christians on your mailing list to visit our Church Website and click "View the Second Coming of Christ" on our home page.
Our main article in this issue explains how major parentheses in the Book of Revelation unfold mysteries hidden "Between the Lines." Taken in conjunction with our Current News items it reveals Scriptures that are coming to pass in real time. The world is in a desperate and terminal state: the one place of safety is in the bosom of Jesus who has promised to take His children Home before the great tribulation.
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 Secret Wars of the Saudi-Israeli Alliance
May 28, 2011 Tel Aviv, Washington and NATO are taking advantage of the upheavals in the Arab World. . . manipulating the Arab geo-political landscape as part of their strategy to control Eurasia. . . Despite the increasing assertiveness of the Egyptian people, the old regime is still in place. . . allowing sectarianism to spread in Egypt in an effort to create divisions within Egyptian society. In early-2011 when Egyptians stormed government buildings they discovered secret papers that showed that the regime was behind the attacks on Egypt's Christian community. . .
The Egyptian military junta, Tel Aviv, and the Al-Sauds are all part of an ominous alliance. . . the backbone of the US imperial structure in the Arab World. . . The Al-Sauds and Tel Aviv are the authors of the Hamas-Fatah split and the estrangement of Gaza from the West Bank. . . Saudi Arabia and Israel have also cooperated in spreading sectarianism and sectarian violence in Lebanon, Iraq, the Persian Gulf, Iran, and now Egypt.
Israel and the Khaliji monarchies serve Washington in its objective to ultimately neutralize Iran and its allies, as well as any form of resistance against the US in Southwest Asia and North Africa. This is why the Pentagon has been heavily arming Tel Aviv and the Khaliji sheikhdoms. Washington has also been setting up missile shields aimed at Iran and Syria in Israel and the Arab sheikhdoms. . . Iranophobia is a PsyOp . . . The strategic objective is to isolate Iran and reconfigure the geo-political landscape of Southwest Asia and North Africa. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: Tel Aviv, Washington, Egypt and Saudi Arabia are under the City of London; Saudi Royals are Jews, al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood were created by the CIA and MI6, Islam is a creation of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church as expounded exhaustively in Newsletters 668 673, and Globalists created Wahabbi Terrorism to destroy Islam and justify a Global State.
AIPAC 101 what every American should Know
May 13, 2011 Trying to protect Apartheid Israel from its growing number of critics is unconscionable, and every decent American should rise up and say, "Enough is enough". Full story: youtube.com
9/11 and America's 'War on Terrorism'
May 26, 2011 The material is highly sensitive. The results of this analysis, which digs beneath the gilded surface of US foreign policy, are both troublesome and disturbing. The conclusions are difficult to accept because they point to the criminalization of the upper echelons of the State. They also confirm the complicity of the corporate media in upholding the legitimacy of the Administration's war agenda and camouflaging US sponsored war crimes.
The World is at an important historical crossroads. The US has embarked on a military adventure which threatens the future of humanity. As we go to press, the Bush Administration has hinted in no uncertain terms that Iran is the next target of the "war on terrorism." Military action against Iran would directly involve Israel's participation, which in turn is likely to trigger a broader war throughout the Middle East, not to mention an implosion in the Palestinian occupied territories. . .

Comment: This is a "must read" as it reports the early realization of Brother Branham's oft repeated sermon, "The World is Falling Apart" (Colossians 1:17).
The Anglo-American Military Axis: West backs Holy Alliance for Control of Arab World and Persian Gulf
May 26, 2011 Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Bahrain and Oman are all hereditary monarchies, emirates and theocracies, but accounting for 45 per cent of the world's proven oil reserves are the West's main allies and proxies in the Arab world and the Persian Gulf, issued a joint declaration demanding that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi abdicate power in favor of the rebel Transitional National Council financed and armed by NATO and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) nations and advocating the easing out of Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh in favor of a more pliant and reliable client.
The EU and GCC, with not a scintilla of apparent irony given the above, also demanded that Iran "play a constructive role and stop interfering in the internal affairs of GCC member states and other countries in the region." On March 14 the first of 1,500 troops from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and the other GCC states entered Bahrain, two days after US Defense Secretary Robert Gates left the kingdom, to back up the Al Khalifa dynasty against opponents of the religious minority-dominated autocracy.
The following week Kuwait deployed naval forces off Bahrain "to protect the territorial waters of the kingdom" as part of the GCC's Peninsula Shield Force military intervention.
In announcing the penultimate round of sanctions against Syria in late April, President Obama included Iran, claiming "Iran's actions in support of the Syrian regime place it in stark opposition to the will of the Syrian people." The will of the Bahraini people is another matter.
Since April the GCC, of which Yemen is not a member, has been pressuring the Yemeni government to accept its alleged mediation efforts to effect a change of regime, an initiative backed by the US and its NATO allies. As German foreign ministry spokesman Andreas Peschke recently informed the press, "We call on President Saleh not to seek to wait out the situation . . . The European Union might take new measures to up pressure on the regime should President Saleh stubbornly hang on. . ."
On May 23 European Union foreign ministers levied more stringent sanctions against Belarus, Iran, Libya and Syria, four nationshardly surprisinglyalso targeted by the US for regime change. . .
A news source in Azerbaijan published the following account on March 28, nine days after the war against Libya was launched:
"NATO's operation, worth about $300-500 million a day, on sweeping the sky over Libya opens a new historical era: the beginning of colonial conquests by the Persian Gulf states. At the same time NATO acts as a 'soldier of fortune'a professional mercenary, ensuring colonial conquest itself. . .
Ten days ago Moroccan Foreign Minister Taieb Fassi Fihri announced that his nation intends to join the GCC, and the GCC reciprocated by confirming that it was considering the request and a parallel one by Jordan. Neither country is near the Persian Gulf but both are monarchies.
At the Congress of Vienna in 1815 after the final defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte at Waterloo, the monarchies in Russia, Austria and Prussia created what became known as the Holy Alliance to unite the European continent under a coalition of kings, czars and emperors exploiting a patina of religiosity to forever fend off the reappearance of republicanism. Of forces they couldn't control.
The self-proclaimed champions of Euro-Atlantic values gathered under the banner of NATO have now found their fitting complement: the kingdoms and emirates of Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. A kinship indeed exists, as the majority of nations bombing Libya on both sides are monarchies: Belgium, Britain, Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, as well as NATO partner Sweden which has assigned eight Gripen warplanes for the war and Canada once removed. . .

Comment: The black nobility are moving to union with Rome as foretold in Revelation 17:12-18. As the manifestation of Jesus Christ in the flesh served to reveal the utter rottenness of the visible Jewish church, the mass of which went to ruin when the Shepherd was smitten (Zechariah 13:7), today we see the rottenness of the visible Christian church since the manifestation of Christ began calling the wise and foolish virgin out by the revelation of the Seals in 1963, "lest they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh" (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 10:1-7; 18:4; Hebrews 6:6).
Disclosure and Deceit: Secrecy as the Manipulation of History, not its Concealment
May 21, 2011 William Blum has catalogued the enormous number of overt and covert interventions by the US in his book Killing Hope. The amazing thing about much of what Blum compiled is that it was not 'secret'. It was simply not reported or misreported. Blum makes clearwhat should be obviousthat the Soviet Union was not a party to a single war or coup from 1945 to 1989 and that the US government knew this. Much of this early action took place when John Foster Dulles was US Secretary of State and his brother was head of the CIA. The Dulles brothers were intimately connected to corporations they represented in their capacity as 'white shoe' lawyers in New York. In fact the founder of the OSS, the CIA's predecessor, William Donovan, was also a corporate lawyer both before and after his service in the OSS. In other words the people who have commanded these foreign policy instruments have almost without exception been the direct representatives of major US business corporations. In each case the public pretext has been the threat of communism or Soviet expansion. Yet the only consistent quality all of these actions had was the suppression of governments that restricted the activities of US or UK corporations. Of course, communism has long been merely a term for any opposition to the unrestricted rights of business corporations.
One could say people like Donovan or Dulles were seconded to government office. However, the direct financial benefit that someone like Dulles obtained when he succeeded in deposing Arbenz in Guatemala came from his shareholding in United Fruit, the instigator and financial backer of the CIA co-ordinated coup. Perhaps the more accurate interpretation of this secret activity is that the business corporation, which previously employed law firms and Pinkertons, had shifted the burden of implementing corporate foreign policy to the taxpayer and the state. . .

Comment: There never was an al Qaeda outside the myth orchestrated by the CIA, and the "War of Terror" like the "War on Drugs" and so many 'official' conflicts of the 'Establishment' have been designed by government to produce opposite outcomes as George Orwell foretold, "war is peace," and "love is hate." The so-called holocaust myth of six million Jews in World War IIsuspended as a mortal gag over humanity to prevent the investigation, exposure and indictment of the enemy of God and man who planned and executed that warexemplifies the magnitude of psychological control of the mass of humanity for Satanic ends. The genocidal hoax of six million Jews in World War I and another six million Jews between the wars have since been erased from history by "the Ministry of Truth." These activities unveil the architects of Judaeo-Roman Catholicism and Jesuitism and their well-documented reigns of terror (Genesis 3:15; Revelation 2:9; 3:9). The fallacious fraud that is Climate Change and Carbon Trading comes from the same stable.
Their well-trained and obedient American 'naughty puppy' truly is "the image unto the beast" (Revelation 13:11-18).
Between the Lines
To understand the Book of Revelation we must recognize the several "parentheses" throughout the Book. A parenthesis is a word, phrase or even a chapter inserted into a grammatically complete sentence, paragraph or book whereby we learn the revelation hidden between the lines as the soliloquy of a Shakespearean character reveals the motives and objectives behind the plot. It is independent of, yet related to what precedes and usually distinguished in writing or printing by round brackets (), commas or dashes, but major parentheses in the Book of Revelation must be discerned.
One of the most notable parentheses is Revelation 7 which consists of two independent visions that reveal 144,000 elect Israelites who will be sealed during the Great Tribulation of Daniel's Seventieth Week, and Christ's Bride, elect "out of ALL nations and kindreds and people and tongues [of Adam's race]" and sealed prior to the manifestation of the Sixth Seal. Our brethren suffered, fought and overcame in "the [historical, continuing and general] great tribulation" between the conflict of faith "in the blood of the Lamb" and the enmity of Judaism (with its myriad political, social and religious facades such as Judaeo-Catholicism), and having washed our robes in the Blood of the Lamb "stand face-to-face before the Throne of God in heaven".
These visions were not secreted under the Seals because they have been ongoing and their continuance unto the first resurrection was revealed to Abram and the prophets and secured by the open Promise of God (Genesis 12:3; 17:5; Deuteronomy 32:21; Psalm 2:8; Isaiah 42:1, 6; Zechariah 9:10; Malachi 1:11).
Daniel 12:1 prophesied to his people that in the second half of the Seventieth Week "there shall be a time of tribulationas has not been from the time that there was a nation on the earth until that time." He also declared, "at that time your people shall be delivered [or sealed], every one that is written in the Book [of Life of the Lamb]." Quoting Daniel verbatim (Matthew 24:21) Jesus magnified his prophecy by introducing the Gentile Bride (Matthew 24:22-28), "for whose sake those days will be shortened lest there be no flesh saved for the translation." The revelation of the unwritten Seventh Seal (Revelation 8:1) unveiled the hidden mystery of the Six written Seals and "did away with PART-Word and Christ's mediation for ignorance of that which is perfect," bringing Him back to earth in W_O_R_D form (I Corinthians 13:10; I Thessalonians 4:14-16a; Revelation 10:1-7).
Brother Branham said, "That's the reason the [Pentecostals and Denominationals] holler the way they do and don't get nothing; it'll be revealed in the thunders. See"? One CANNOT be reborn today outside a clear revelation of this Message (Matthew 25:6; Romans 11:30; I Thessalonians 4:16; II Thessalonians 2:3; Revelation 3:17-20; 18:4) for the mysteries of the Seven Thunders in Revelation 10 are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals. It will be these divinely revealed 'mystery-truths' that literally turn the hearts of the children to the Pentecostal fathers. But the world church system is looking by sight and not by faith, in vain expectation of seeing the glorified Christ descend from the heavens. Jesus stated emphatically do NOT look for the Man; look for My 'parousia' Coming when the Light of revelation that shone in the East is restored in the West (Matthew 24:22-28; Zechariah 14:7; Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7). Christ has "shortened the days" by His parousia Coming through the revelation of the Seventh Seal to bring His end-time Bride to maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation before the tribulation Daniel prophesied for the end time, completing the innumerable multitude of His Bride of all Ages in an election who will not see death (Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:52-55).
Jesus continued, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days" of the general great tribulation throughout the Gentile dispensation (Matthew 24:22-28; Revelation 7:14) when natural "Israel is spiritually blinded as the enemy of the Gospel until the innumerable multitude of Christ's Body the Gentile Church is sealed" (Romans 11:26, 28; Revelation 7:9), the Lord will take His Church Home and return to natural Israel to fulfill Daniel's Seventieth Week (Matthew 24:29-34). This will be "the day of vengeance of our God" (Isaiah 61:2b; Luke 21:22) on all who have rejected the warning of the third angel's Message: "If any man worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, he shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment will ascend forever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receives the mark of his name." This was the proclamation of Brother Branham's ministry (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 14:11-13; 18:4).
The Gentile dispensation will end with a great earthquake at the opening of the Sixth Seal (Isaiah 13:6-11; Joel 2:31-32; Zechariah 14:3-9; Matthew 24:29-31; Revelation 6:12; 11:19; 12:7-9, 16; 16:18). Los Angeles will sink beneath the sea, the Mount of Olives will cleave in two and es Sakhra, the Dome of the Rock will be demolished. I believe this will ignite the "hot stage" of World War III. Zechariah 14:2, "God will gather all nations to battle against Jerusalem: the city will be taken, the houses rifled and the women raped; half of the city will go into exile, but the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle" (Daniel 12:1).
This is clearly referring to Jerusalem which under the 1947 UN Partition Plan is a 'corpus separatum' or "separated body," an internationally administered zone encompassing the 1947 municipal boundaries "plus surrounding villages and towns." This is a special legal and political status peculiar to its environment "under a special international regime administered by the United Nations" because "of its association with three world religions." The Plan was never implemented. At the end of the 1948-49 War, an armistice line was drawn, with western Jerusalem in Israeli hands, and east Jerusalem, together with the whole West Bank, controlled by Transjordan. Yet the 1947 plan under United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 is the basis on which Zechariah 14:2 will be fulfilled in the very near future and administered by the Judaeo-Roman church as foretold in Daniel 4:23; 9:27; 11:45; Luke 21:24; 23:28-31; Job 22:23; Revelation 6:16; 13:1-3. This map shows Jerusalem and the Corpus Separatum proposed in 1947.
In World War III Russia will invade mainland United States, prompting a federation of the world's religions to restore peace between political Zionism and political Islam, causing the withdrawal of Russian troops and ratifying Satan's totalitarian one world government presided over by Rome's then Satan-incarnate pope, "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 [which the Jews will build], showing himself that he is God" (II Thessalonians 2:3-4). "And all who dwell on Earth will worship him" (Revelation 13:8). "The beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth of seven [Roman emperors who have deified themselves] and goes into perdition" (Revelation 17:11). Can you say, "Vicarivs Filii Dei"?
The work of Roman Catholic author, historian and editor of Culture Wars (formerly Fidelity) Magazine, Dr. E. Michael Jones focuses on the historical friction between the Catholic Church and Jews whom he conflates with Israelites. He considers the papacy is compromised and Judaism is a wicked ideology. However between the lines of this interview you will discern close ties exist, and that reliance on the US supplements the monarchies as enforcers of edicts. Hence her prophesied willingness to refinance the US dollar with gold backing will counter atheistic Judaeo-Communism, and through a reciprocal covenant with the banksters of the 'City of London' to restore world peace and prosperity, preserve and elevate Rome to global hegemony and assure her transition from Vatican City to Jerusalem (Revelation 13:4; 18:8-19; Daniel 8:25; 9:27).
The "bottom line" as the Khazars sang in Fiddler of the Roof is: "Money makes the world go around." And so it is with their world church system. But the Word of the Lord is: "Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit. Who are you, O great mountain [of worldly circumstances]? You shall become a plain before He who laid the Foundation Stone: and He will bring forth the Headstone with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it" (Zechariah 4:7).
I Timothy 6:10, "The love of money is the root of all evils. In striving for it some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows".
Rome's declining political authority has seen a cozying-up to her once Protestant daughters, her Jewish mother, her child Islam and avowed pagan religions. Jewish Jesuit the late Dr. Malachi Martin who was involved with Vatican intelligence assessing things in Israel and an advisor to three popes, told Uri Dowbenko, "I think that from the very start John Paul II for whatever reasons, has sought after one thing and one thing only. The formation of what now appears to be in his mind, a universal assemblage of Catholics at the core; grouped with them the Protestant denominations, sects and churches; grouped around them believing Jews, believing Muslims, believing Hindus, believing Buddhists. And that would be a universal religious assembly that could have a powerful dynamic kick in civilization and in solving the problems of men and women today. That is the only thing you can really say this man has sought heart and soul and body with all his traveling. . ." (Uri Dowbenko, Bushwhacked: Inside Stories of True Conspiracy, p. 213).
The major contenders for global hegemony are all working with and conspiring against one another. Soon the players will be in position to hose Satan and his host on their eviction from heaven. Before we continue I would like to comment on New Jerusalem and the renewed heavens and renewed Earth apropos our next illustration. Brother Branham said, "There'll be plenty of room in the new Earth. . . It'll be renovated by fire, but there'll be no more sea. . . 'cause pretty near four-fifths of it's in water. That right? The explosion dries up the sea, erupts the earth. Oh, my, and remember fifteen hundred miles square. What a City. . . That would make it fifteen hundred miles this way, fifteen hundred miles that way, fifteen hundred miles the length by the breadth by the height. Fifteen hundred miles transparent gold. And the City had a wall around it. . . Enoch, before the antediluvian destruction, when justification was coming in, he brought forth a sign. And in this pyramid is seven steps going to the king's chamber. Watch, on the seventh step (if you ever studied the dimensions of the pyramid) what comes out to take the oncomer to introduce to the king. Watch, whose station that is standing there, and you'll see the day you're living in the pyramid." (See Newsletter 621, 633, 635, and 676). . .
"In the earth's time of purifying by its baptism of fire, there will be volcanics, such as this earth exploding, and will push up a pyramid-like mountain. See? Plenty of room to do it; this whole thing'll be changed; the whole surface will be changed. You got it? It'll push up a pyramid-like mountain. This would exactly be with the Word if it does it, which it will."
"Now notice, for in Isaiah 65:25 it said, "They shall not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain, saith the Lord." Oh, "all My holy mountain." Remember, it's always a mountain."
"If the walls were straight up and down, this City could only be seen from the inside. The throne could only be seen from the inside. . ." (The Future Home of the Heavenly Bridegroom and the Earthly Bride, p. 44:364-363).
"When the last of Israel have been joined in love to the Lord after the midst of the Week, and the enemy has been destroyed, God will prepare His holy mountain, His new Garden of Eden for the Bride and His and her attendants for the thousand year honeymoon on Earth. As Adam and Eve were in the garden and did not finish the thousand years, now Jesus our last Adam, and His Eve (the True Church) will fulfill all the plan of God" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 41:3).
The second major parenthesis is Revelation 10:1 11:13 which is placed between the Sixth and Seventh Trumpets as Revelation 7 was placed between the Sixth and Seventh Seals. In the vision at Revelation 10:1 we see "the Lord Himself descend from heaven with the Shout" of Brother Branham's Message, which is the Seven Thunders that baptize Christ's end-time Bride into the Capstone of the Body as Paul explained in I Thessalonians 4:16. Throughout this Book John is caught up in the Spirit into the day of the Lord at the sound of Israel's Seventh Trumpet (Revelation 1:10-12; 4:1-2) and looking back through time to man's day he sees and hears the angel William Branham ministering the hidden mysteries concerning the Gentile dispensation that is the Spiritual antitype of natural Israel's Pentecostal Feast. John represents Christ's end-time Brideyou and I who will not see deathfor we too have been caught up in the Spirit into the day of the Lord. We have recognized our day and its Message and identified our place in the Body because the mystery of God was shut up and sealed until the completion of the PART-Word saints and Christ's mediation at the close of the Laodicean Church Age. "But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, [William Branham], the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets" (Revelation 10:7).
Revelation 10:8-11 describes how the Voice of the Archangel whispers His secrets to the heart of His Beloved by placing the Message from Genesis to Revelation, transforming the Rhema to the Logos to bring her to maturity in the unity of the faith and under preeminence with His mind in her, so that in the manifestation of the Sons of God, what she says He will do. "And the voice which . . . . insert your name . . . . heard from heaven spoke to me again, and said, Go and take the little Book which is open in the hand of the Angel [Christ] who stands [in judgment] upon [Rome, the beast from] the sea, and upon [the United States, the beast from] the earth. And I went to the Angel, and said to Him, Give me the little Book. And He said, Take it, and eat it up; and it will make your belly bitter, but it shall be in your mouth sweet as honey. And . . . . insert your name . . . . took the little Book out of the Angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. And He said to me, You must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings".
Christ's Capstone Bride must be one with the revelation of God's Word in order to have His mind in her for the 'third pull.' The rhema or "letter" of the Message is sweet in the mouth because it is "quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, . . . and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." It exposes sin and manifests the folly of carnal impersonators with their man-made interpretations. But it is bitter in the belly, because as you become one with the Word you must mortify the deeds of your flesh and mortal spirit and bring them subject to the Headship of Christ the Husband of your soul.
The second vision in this parenthesis explains the ministry of "the two anointed ones who stand by the Lord of the whole Earth"two Hebrew prophets anointed with the Spirit and power that endued Moses and Elijah (Zechariah 4; Revelation 11:1-13). Their ministry during the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week will be the antitype of Israel's feast of Trumpets calling 144,000 elect Israelites who will return to the land of the Covenant to recognize that the true Day of Atonement was on Calvary two thousand years before when their forefathers, misled by Pharisaism which is Judaism, and the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic Edomite so-called Jews, scourged, spat, cursed and publicly humiliated and murdered Israel's naked Messiah, beating their breasts in unison and proclaiming "His blood be on us, and on our children," as it is to this day (Matthew 27:25).
Ezekiel 37:7-11, "I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. And as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and skin covered them: but there was no breath in them. The Lord God said, Prophesy to the breath and say, THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as He commanded, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceeding great host. Then He said to me, Son of man, these bones signify the whole house of Israel: they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our tribal allotments in the land of the Covenant".
Ezekiel was prophesying the return of the twelve tribes to the land of the Covenant (now occupied by self-styled Jews) after the Seventh Trumpet and earthquake of Zechariah 14:4; Revelation 6:12; 8:5; 11:19 and 16:18 mark the end of the Gentile dispensation. As Ezekiel explains, this produces the reunion of both houses of Israel, their national conversion and the restoration of the kingdom with the millennial reign of Jesus Christ in the office of Son of David.
Matthew 24:30-31, "[At the dispensation change] the sign of Christ's 'parousia' Coming to Israel in the office of Son of man will appear [unrecognized] over Mount Zion . . . and He will send His angels [a modern 'Moses' and 'Elijah'] at the Seventh Trumpet, and they will gather together His 144,000 elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." In Revelation 7:1-8 Jesus again alludes to Ezekiel when He commands the four horses of the Apocalypse who have power over "the four winds [signifying war and strife], Do not destroy the United States, the beast from the Earth, nor Papal Rome, the beast from the sea, nor humanitythe trees, until we have sealed the 144,000 servants [NOT Sons] of our God in their foreheads." This confirms that twelve thousand from each of the twelve Tribes of Israel will be born-again in Israel in one day (Isaiah 30:26; 66:8; Zechariah 3:9-10; Joel 2:32; Obadiah 1:17; Romans 11:26-27).
Through this prophetic ministry the elect Israelites will fulfill the sixfold purpose of Gabriel's visit to Daniel (Daniel 9:24). It will reveal the Seven Trumpet mysteries of God's Judgments upon Israelites following their rejection of the Gospel Trumpet of the Message of the angel to each Church Age announcing the soon-coming of Joseph's antitype, Jesus Christ (Genesis 41:42-44), and reconfirm the New Covenant rejected by their forefathers under the same anointing that was on Elijah and Moses. "If anyone would harm them [the spoken Word of the 'third pull' will destroy their enemies as in Revelation 19:15]. They have power to shut the sky, so that no rain will fall in the days of their prophecy; power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the Earth with every plague, as often as they desire [as Moses spoke the plagues on Egypt, and Elijah stopped the skies for three years]. And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit (Revelation 9:1; 13:1; 17:8) will make war against them, and overcome them, and kill them (Daniel 7:21, 25; 9:27; Revelation 6:11; 13:7). And for three and a half days their bodies will be exposed in the streets of Jerusalem, the great city fitly described as Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was crucified. No one will be permitted to bury them, and people and kindreds and tongues and nations will gaze at their dead bodies."
Please note this is set in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week of seven prophetic years, and one is led to question whether the apostate (once) Christian world and the 'City of London' are rehearsing the fulfillment of this Scripture with the genocidal persecution of Slobodan Milosevic, the murder of a Saddam Hussein look-alike, and a surrogate for the long-deceased Osama bin Laden, and the attempted murder of Col. Moammar Gaddafi? These kings and great men, churches, world leaders and the United Nations now drinking the wine of this amoral fornication will also persecute the elect Israelites under the Sixth Seal.
"And those dwelling on earth will rejoice over them, and make merry and exchange gifts, because the two prophets had been a torment to the dwellers on the earth. But after three and a half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood up on their feet; and great fear fell on those who saw them. They heard a loud Voice calling them from heaven, Come up here, and they ascended in a cloud into heaven while their enemies watched. At that hour there was a great earthquake, a tenth of the city collapsed and seven thousand were killed in the earthquake. Then the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven".
The third major parenthesis is Revelation 12. It is a retrospective of the ministry of the two prophets instructing their followers in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. It begins with the teaching of Paul: "It is not as though the Word of God has failed. For by no means do all who descend from Israel belong to Israel: neither are they all Abraham's seed because they are his offspring: but, through Isaac shall your descendents be named. [And through Jacob also, which eliminates well over ninety percent of so-called Jewry from the Covenants of Israel]. This means it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God: but the children of the promise are reckoned as His seed and heirs".
This eliminates British Israel/Christian Identity discerners following the HOAX of Cabalistic astronomer to Queen Elizabeth I, Dr. John Dee (1527-1608), and Rabbi Manasseh ben Israel (1604-1657) of Amsterdam. They claim to be "the lost sheep of the house of Israel" (Matthew 10:5-6) despite the fact Israel is cut off since Calvary and Spiritually blinded until the last saint predestinated to Christ's Gentile Bride is baptized into the Body. Then God will turn to an election of blood Israelites in Daniel's Seventieth Week. God's prophet said, "British Israel, and all that stuff, which there's nothing to".
As we have just read from Romans 9:6-8, God is presently dealing with an election from every nation, tribe and tongue in Adam's race. And when He returns to deal with the Israelites, He will only be dealing with an election able to receive the faith. Galatians 3:27-29, "As many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Judahite nor Gentile, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you [who are born-again] are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise".
Abraham's seed is the baptism with the Holy Ghost or new birth. End of story!
Revelation 12:1-6 reports Israel's two prophets will reveal how Spiritual Israel gave birth to Messiah and crossed over from the curse of the Law of sin and death to grace. The Law is represented as the Moon which was a shadow of the Sun and of good things to come under the New Covenant. Now the shadow is under her feet and she is clothed in the Light of the Sun, or SON, and crowned with the revelation of the twelve apostles.
Veiled behind Imperial Rome, Satan, in the person of Judah's Edomite king, Herod the Great, sought to kill Jesus Messiah as soon as He was born. Satan deceived the Semitic Israelites with Pharisaic propaganda based on the Talmud, causing many generations from that day to this to be blotted from the Book of Life. This reference from the Talmud explains why Jehovah's Witnesses (so-called) deny our Lord Jesus Christ (John 3:18, 36). Following his death and resurrection He was caught up to God, and to His Throne which is heaven. "And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days".
Spiritual Israel, now the Christian "woman" or Church, being forewarned fled to Pella in the Jordan valley before Titus marched on Jerusalem (Matthew 24:15-21). God's elect are very few and have always lived in the wilderness, and although your church might have a congregation of hundreds or even thousands you may be the sole elect in that wilderness, yet God will send the ravens to nourish you. Brother Branham called his church "the backside of the desert." In expounding Revelation 12 and 13 he said, "This nation was founded on freedom of religion because our forefathers had fled Roman persecution of the modern Jezebel system, and had come up, and stood many great persecutions and martyrdom under that false system of Jezebel. And according to the Bible, of Revelations the 13th chapter, God had promised them an oasis and a place, for the woman was carried into the wilderness where she was fed for a time, times, and a dividing of time. God had made the promise to America or to the church (to the woman) to come into this country."
"Did you notice in Revelations 13[:1-2]? All the other beasts had come up out of the sea, waters; Revelations 17:15 said, "The waters which thou sawest is thickness and multitudes of people." All the other beasts, they come up out of the water, thickness and multitudes of people. But when the United States come up, "It come up out of the earth where there was no people" [Revelation 13:11-12]. And remember, when it come up, it looked like a little lamb. Now, a lamb has two horns, and that's civil and ecclesiastical powers. But when they've united, remember, then that lamb spoke like the dragon did before him; and the dragon was Rome. . . after while, this same system that we have, spoke like the dragon and exercised all the power the dragon had before him" (Jezebel Religion, p. 7:33-37).
"This United States is rotten to the core. . . " And he exercised all the power . . . the first beast had before him . . . [the red dragon] . . . and caused all that was on the earth, that dwelled upon the earth to worship the beast, whose deadly wound was healed." [Look!]
"And he does great wonders, so to make him a fire come down out of heaven. . ." [The atomic bomb, and hydrogen; smart, intelligent nation, and so forth, deceiving the nations by these things].
"This United States will come to a time that church and state will unite together. And Protestant and Catholic will throw their things together to fight communist. And it's exactly playing in the hands of what God said right here" (The Mark of the Beast, #26.3, p. 22:158-161).
I wish I could say, "Read, watch or listen to the news and you will see the Words of Jesus and Brother Branham fulfilled in real time." But the media, even taxpayer-funded national media, is controlled by the enemy of God and man who publish and broadcast in NewSpeak and DoubleThink as George Orwell forewarned in his book, 1984, so we are told that "Love is Hate," "War is Peace," and "Lies are Truth," and 0.035% of carbon in the atmosphere is burning up the planet! However you will see Revelation 12 and 13 coming to pass with the real blood of innocent men, women and children if you read the full story to the news items in this Newsletter.
After the close of the Gentile dispensation, "the woman"Spiritual Israelites of the blood of Abraham, Isaac and Jacobwill flee 2,500 years of safe exile in the Muslim lands of the former Assyrian empire to the wilderness of modern Israel, the one place on Earth prepared by God where two Hebrew prophets will feed her for 1,260 days, the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. Do you see how the Lord is turning Esau's determination to kill the descendants of Jacob and steal back the birthright to Jacob's benefit (Genesis 27:39-41; Romans 8:28)? The invasion of Jerusalem in the brief "hot stage" of World War III will cause a multitude of Israeli Jews to return to their homelands in Eastern Europe, and Spiritual Israel "the woman," will recognize the sign of the time and return for redemption to the land of her Covenant.
The tribulation is not called "Jacob's trouble" in vain and according to Daniel 9:27 Esau's self-styled Jewish banksters will make a covenant with the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church. Rothschilds are the "Guardians of the Vatican Treasury," Jewry regard Rome as Esau, and both are at enmity with Jacob. But Jacob will wrestle with God until He has a clear revelation of the Message of his modern 'Moses' and 'Elijah.' This will transpire in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week.
After six thousand years of "war in heaven," Satan and his demons are cast down to Earth at the opening of the Sixth Seal, the sounding of the Seventh Trumpet and the pouring out of the Seventh Vial. This will be the dawning of the day of the Lord working "God's mighty power that raised Christ from the dead" in the resurrection of the sleeping saints, and 'third pull' for the manifestation of the Sons of God and our translation (Ephesians 1:19-20; Revelation 12:10).
The world church system then will persecute Christ's end-time Bride, and after her translation the remnant of the woman's seed who keep the commandments of God (Israelites), and have the testimony of Jesus Christ (Gentiles), will be hunted down like dogs and give their lives for their testimony (Revelation 12:11). This is not the Church as we were redeemed before Revelation 4. "And when the Dragon saw that he was cast down to Earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And the woman, [the 144,000 elect Israelites], was given two wings of the Great Eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, [the land of the Covenant], where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, [the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week] from the face of the Serpent".
As the eagle feeds her young by mouth, Jehovah Eagle will nourish the elect Israelites by the mouth of his modern 'Moses' showing Israel whence they fell and what was prophesied, and his modern 'Elijah' who will reveal New Testament History and the "present Truth" for the hour. Did you notice Revelation 12:14 agrees with the rest of prophecy in that the people of the twelve Tribes will not return to the land of the Covenant until the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:14; 27:13; 49:17; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 37:14; 39:27; Micah 5:3; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31; Revelation 12:14, etc,).
1,260 days later we come to the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week where Rome breaks her covenant with the self-styled Jews of the 'City of London,' martyrs the two Hebrew prophets and begins to force the mark of the beast. Revelation 13:7-8, "The Dragon empowered the pope of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church to make war with the Israelite saints, and to martyr them; and gave him authority over every nation, tribe and tongue: all whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world will worship him." That is, everyone on Earth but the 144,000 elect Israelites will worship the "beast"; these will be martyred along with the non-elect whose names remain in the Book of Life and who refuse to serve the will or receive the trinitarian doctrine of the beast enforced by his (once) Protestant image and the United States military (Revelation 13:15-18).
Revelation 12:15-17, "And a flood of water gushed out of the Serpent's mouth after the woman to sweep her away. And the Earth helped the woman, and the Earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the Dragon was wroth with the woman, [the 144,000 elect Israelites] and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ".
For three and a half years Christ and his Bride have been at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. The "water" that pours as a flood from the mouth of the Serpent is armed multitudes under command of the Judaeo-Roman Dragon (Revelation 17:15). Brother Branham explained, at this time "Rome and her allies then send their troops to destroy all the God-fearing, Word-abiding Jews. But as they come against the city to destroy it, there will appear in the heavens the sign of the coming of the Son of Man with His mighty armies to destroy them who have been destroying the earth. With the enemy repulsed, Jesus then comes and presents Himself to the 144,000. Having seen His mighty acts of salvation, they have come to know His power. But also seeing His wounds and knowing that they had rejected Him even to that moment, causes them to cry out in the agony of terror and fear, even as did their brethren of old when they stood before Joseph, being sore afraid that they would be killed. But as Joseph said, "Don't be angry with yourselves. It is all right. God was in it all. He did it to preserve life." Even so will Jesus speak peace and love to them" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 41).
Brother Branham applied Zechariah 14:1-2 to the United States as well as to Jerusalem, for both apostate nations are producing a surfeit of loathing among all peoples of the world, even from erstwhile friends, on account of their barbaric covetousness and cruelty toward innocent, helpless, mainly Muslim civilians and resource-rich third world nations. When the opportunity arises with earthquakes sinking Los Angeles and dividing the Mount of Olives, men will seek to extract justice (Isaiah 29:6; Zechariah 14:4-5; Revelation 12:16; 16:18-19).
When Dathan and Korah gathered against Moses, "Earth opened her mouth and swallowed them up" (Numbers 16:30-32; 26:10). And after "the Lord gathers all nations against Jerusalem who seize and plunder the city, rape the women, [dash the children to pieces] and divide the city" (United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181; Isaiah 13:6-14; Zechariah 14:1-3), "Earth will open her mouth and swallow up the flood [or multitude] which the dragon cast out of his mouth" (Revelation 12:16). For "in those days and at that time," (Joel 3:1) after the close of the Gentile Dispensation (and the events of Joel 2) the Lord God will "desolate the Earth; and destroy the sinners out of it" (Isaiah 13:9)óbeginning in the land of the Covenant (Zechariah 13:8), in order to accommodate the Covenant people of Israel and Judah returning for redemption from the lands of exile to the Presence of the Lord "in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem" (Joel 2:32).
The destruction of Dathan and Korah is a type of the earthquake of Zechariah 14:3-6. And after the expatriation of the so-called Jews who are not Israelites, the Lord will provide a way of escape for His people through the valley of His mountains formed by the cleaving of the Mount of Olives when Michael stands up for the children of Israel (Daniel 12:1). He will collect the nations as God roused Pharaoh to pursue Israel, and as the Red Sea swallowed Pharaoh's armies Earth will swallow Israel's enemies while providing them a way of escape (Revelation 12:16).
This brings us to Israel's revelation story in Zechariah 12:9 13:1, 7b-9 "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. In that day there will be a great mourning in Jerusalem, like the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon. And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart; all the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart. In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness . . . and I will return My hand [once more] upon the [144,000] little ones. And it shall come to pass, that in all the land [of the Covenant, NOT the world, because an Israelite outside the land is without the Covenant], says the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on My Name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is My people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God".
This is confirmed by Revelation 16:19, "And the great city [Jerusalem] was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath".
This Scripture will come to pass in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week after the Message of Israel's two prophets. It will be the birth of Israel in one day (Isaiah 66:8) when they recognize Christ's 'parousia' Coming in the Clouds of glorynot by sight, by faithas we have seen Him Coming in the Clouds of glory (although the form of their Cloud will display a different appearance). Revelation 1:7, "Behold, He comes with Clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also who pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen." And not only will "the house of My friends" the elect Israelites mourn in deep repentance, but those Gentiles who had rejected Him and the foolish virgin who did not press into the full atonement will also be in bitterness. nl686.htm
