Nairobi Mall Deceit abets Israeli-Western Pipeline Wars to oust Asian Rivals
October 1, 2013 It took a televised massacre to overturn the East African public's aversion to military cooperation with former colonial masters and the Israelis. . . What powerful elite group has the money to organize such an elaborate ruse to sway public opinion? Who can control a secret network inside the Kenyan military and mass media? What is their motive? How do they benefit? From the onset of the police-military siege of Westgate, Israeli intelligence agencies assumed a key advisory role to the Kenyan police and directed the public-information releases, according to news reporters on the scene. As in many sensitive police-intelligence operations, information releases to the media are "strategic," a euphemism for psychological operations.
Psyops are aimed at controlling the options for the criminals and shaping public attitudes about the event's causes and outcomes.
Israeli experts were pre-positioned inside the mall, being in charge of the private security company whose plainclothesmen posed for "action shots." The perfectly lit photos were taken during a lengthy power blackout in the nearly windowless mall. The viewer is led to believe as in Hollywood movies that a handgun is a match against automatic rifles. A large force of Mossad agents was still stationed inside Nairobi since the investigation of a mystery fire that had destroyed the capital's Jomo Kenyatta Airport on August 8.
Nairobi, due to its logistical position and concentration of Jewish business interests, is the Israeli regional intelligence center for East Africa. Despite the 2002 terrorist attacks on an Israel plane over Kenya and hotel in Mombasa, the primary interest is not solely terrorism.
The two priorities for Israeli operations in East Africa are:
to open a second military front against Iranians, who allegedly channel aid, including weapons, to Hamas via Sudan;
and in league with Western energy corporations to oust Asian oil companies from South Sudan by building an alternative pipeline to a proposed mega-port on Kenya's Indian Ocean coast. . .
The Israeli-US alliance is so widely distrusted worldwide, based on a proven record of misdeeds and skullduggery, their agents have to operate under the cover of sock-puppet companies . . . The surest method of curtailing Asian industrial and military strength is through the "Asian premium," an added fee for every barrel of oil that passes through the Strait of Malacca. The steady stream of tankers is watched over by the Israel-US agents posted in Singapore. An Israeli nuclear ally, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has quietly pushed Toyota Tsusho, the giant carmaker's holding company, to enter talks with South Sudan on the Juba-Lamu pipeline deal. (The term nuclear ally refers to the presence of Israeli technicians and security staff from Dimona at the Fukushima No.1 plant at the time of the March 2011 meltdowns.) The Zionist-neocolonialist stranglehold on Asia's energy jugular must be broken, and place to do it is Kenya.
Beyond the twin objectives of countering Iran and controlling African petroleum output, Israeli policymakers harbor a third ambition of a visionary nature: to establish a Hamitic-controlled region stretching from the Horn at Somalia across Ethiopia and agriculture-rich Uganda and into the mineral resources of Central Africa.
No nation on Earth is today more race-conscious than Israel, which seeks to establish an alliance of so-called Lost Tribes and descendants of Ham, the country cousins of the Semitic people. . . [However few Israelis are Semitic Ed] . . . Just months before the Kenyan mall attack, according to a Guardian report by Simon Tisdall, a hardline faction led by Ahmed Abdi Godane assassinated the founders of Al Shabaab known by the noms de guerre Al-Afghani and Burhan. By design and certainly not accident, all Israelis inside the Westgate Mall were allowed to leave unharmedwhile even Kenyans of Muslim faith were butchered. In the Syrian conflict, too, the more brutal foreign fighters are closely cooperating with the Israeli Defense Force against moderate rivals . . .
Every detail from the siege demands forensic reexamination for slip-ups in fakery. Westgate was not West End. Nairobi was a bad show, poorly scripted, sloppily directed and clumsily acted. A much more convincing performance should be expected from the CIA and Mossad. It would be a slapstick comedy if not for the fact that so many innocent bit actors were murdered in cold blood by the intelligence services. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
'President's Private Army': NSA-CIA Spying Central to Carrying out Obama Administration's Assassination Program without Oversight
September 29, 2013 We've previously documented that the NSA isn't just passively spying like a giant peeping tom, but is actively using that information in mischievous ways . . . such as assassinations.
A lot more information is about to come out on the topic. AP reports:
Two American journalists known for their investigations of the United States' government said Saturday they've teamed up to report on the National Security Agency's role in what one called a "US assassination" . . .
Joint Special Operations Command, or JSOC as well as the CIA, have been described as "the President's private army," which operate at the President's beck-and-call with no real oversight.
But a fourth agency is also centrally involved in both intelligence-gathering and assassinations: the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC). NCTC is responsible for generating the "disposition matrix" of who to murder using drones or other means . . .
But don't worry, the government would never assassinate Americans living on US soil . . . would it?
And even if it would, it would only consider truly bad guys to be terrorists . . . wouldn't it? Full story: globalresearch.ca

Seven Israelis in Syria OPCW Chemical Weapons Team?
September 29, 2013 Quoting sources close to the secretariat of the 'Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons' (OPCW), the report noted that 7 out of 9 "Israeli" experts the organization had contacted agreed to join the team and enter the Syrian territories. It further noted that the 7 experts hold 'honorary' nationalities among which are German, Russian, Ukrainian, French and Canadian. . . by virtue of the agreement signed between Russia and the United States, the organization can make use of "Israeli" experts despite the fact Tel Aviv is not a member in the organization. . . if these experts hold other nationalities that allow them entry into Syria's territories. . . these were contacted upon direct request made by Head of the investigation committee in Ghouta, Scott Krenz, and the Director General of the organization, Ambassador Ahmet Üzümcü of [Donmeh-Jew ruled] Turkey. . . "5 of the "Israeli" experts who agreed to be part of the team are originally researchers in the "Israel" Institute for Biological Research (IIBR); a governmental, applied research institute specializing in the field of researching and developing chemical and biological weapons. As for the other two inspectors, they work in Europe and Canada."
Expecting that scandals will unravel soon on the mission of the team designated to dismantle the chemical weapons arsenal in Syria, the source anticipated these scandals will be worse than the Iraqi case when "Israeli" and American experts entered Iraq to gather information for Tel Aviv and Washington. Not only that but also they had contaminated Iraqi arms with prohibited chemical material to accuse the Iraqi government back then of using chemical weapons. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: I smell "sayanim." UNSC Resolution 2118 on Syria in response to false flag chemical weapons attack. US-backed terrorists "get away with mass killing." Obama is pushing for a pretext to invade Syria.
New Jersey-based Genie Energy, which was granted survey and drilling rights in the Golan last February from the Israeli government, is owned by rich Zionists like Howard Jonas, [Lord Jacob Rothschild] and media mogul Rupert Murdoch. Now Israel is preparing to steal oil from Syria as it stole oil from Egypt in the 70s. "Some commentators did raise the issue of the Golan Heights being occupied land, making any such activity as extracting oil a violation of international law. However, Genie's Israeli manager, a former minister, is quoted as saying that he does not expect any international pressure on this matter, particularly from Syria, which is embroiled in an internal war (globalresearch.ca).
Various authors are claiming that because the United States and Russia are coming to an agreement on the chemical weapons of Bashar Al Assad that this somehow represents progress. But this is a mere farce and at best unfounded optimism due to the current, media-staged US posturing. One slaughter/attack was temporarily eluded, and look at how it is done, through an international, disarmament-policing mechanism a smaller power is compelled to agree to give up their weapons to a more dominant body, which in turn dominates every one and the people doing it are largely guilty of war crimes. How does this represent progress?
The United States doesn't need to use violence everywhere anymore. It has become so powerful that merely threatening to do so achieves the same results . . . the US uses cut-throat killer mercenaries in Syria who have murdered hundreds of thousands of innocent people. It isn't even proven that Assad used weapons against his people and so the US and Russia now negotiate how Assad will disarm, yet the greatest purveyor of violence in the worldthe United States government remains armed to the teeth after it obliterated 3 million people in Vietnam, millions in Iraq and burned to death 300,000 400,000 civilians in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and is now threatening Russia that it will back out of negotiations to include Syria within the Organization for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) if Russia doesn't include Chapter 7 of the UN Charter into the US Russia accords, essentially allowing a NATO/US military attack against Syria if it is seen as "not complying," according to the DC war criminals' corrupt, hypocritical standards. . . the instigator of the secret rendition program that snatched and locked away detainees in the imperialist police state war on terror was George W. Bush, not Assad . . . (globalresearch.ca).
Ghouta Chemical Attacks: US-Backed False Flag? Killing Syrian Children to Justify a 'Humanitarian' Military Intervention
September 25, 2013 The chemical attacks which took place in East Ghouta on August 21, 2013 could be the most horrific false flag operation in history. To date, available evidence indicates that numerous children were killed by "opposition rebels," their bodies manipulated and filmed with a view to blaming the Syrian government for the attacks, thus sparking outrage and galvanizing worldwide public opinion in favor of another bloody, imperial US-led war.
While confirming the use of chemical weapons against civilians, the UN report has failed to identify the authors of the attacks:
Instead of a non-politicized investigation and lab analysis, the UN investigation of alleged nerve-gas attacks inside Syria was led by Professor Ake Sellstrom, a man of mystery who keeps a veil of secrecy around his research and political-military relationships . . .
This cosmetic veneer of Swedish neutrality has been deftly exploited by Israel and NATO to perpetrate falsehoods throughout Sellstrom's work for the UN, including denial of the chemical-and-biological causes for "Gulf War Syndrome" and the shipments of US chemical weapons to the Saddam Hussein regime . . .
The UN report of chemical weapons on Syria lacks basic credibility due to the duplicitous record of its chief inspector, Ake Sellstrom, who is politically and financially compromised at every level. (Yoichi Shimatsu, The Sellstrom Report: The United Nations' Syria Inspector Shills for NATO and Israel) . . .
The Hans Blix-Ake Sellstrom inspection teams in Iraq did not investigate the special-weapons bunkers that were bombed by American warplanes in the US invasion.
Sellstrom also never made any attempt to probe the US-produced 20-foot-long canisters of VX nerve gas discovered at Balad Air Base by American National Guardsmen. His mission was not to prove Iraqi guilt but to get Washington off the hook for supplying tons of nerve gas to Baghdad. Saving US officials like Donald Rumsfeld from disgrace and treason charges is far more important to imperial power that disclosing any facts in a theater of war.
The salient critique of the UN inspections in Iraq was made by American inspector Scott Ritter who accused the team of spying for Washington and NATO. The same question hangs over Sellstrom's report on Syria. Is Sellstrom acting on behalf of Washington and Tel Aviv? . . .
The geopolitical objective underlying the White House orchestrated histrionics over Syria is to strip Damascus of its limited deterrence capability against Israel's nuclear forces. Nerve gas may not be much of a counter-strike response compared with atomic warheads, but it seems Israel's goal is absolute strategic supremacy against the Arab states and Iran. With the new UN report on Syria, Tel Aviv is a giant step closer to the dream of rendering all its neighbors defenseless and divided. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Israel's History of Chemical Weapons Use
September 29, 2013 The UN chemical weapons inspectors, who went to Syria to investigate the use of chemical weapons, should have stopped on their way at Occupied Palestine (Israel), where the Israeli government has the largest stockpile of chemical and other WMD in the entire Middle East. They would have found a lot of evidence and witness accounts of Israeli use of chemical, as well as biological and nuclear, weapons against the Palestinians and their Arab neighbors. The attacks started in May 1948 and are still going on in one form or another.
The Zionist gangs under the directive and leadership of David Ben-Gurion, who became the first Israeli Prime Minister, had adopted a military policy of genocide, extermination and total destruction of the indigenous Palestinian inhabitants and their towns in order to evacuate the land for outsider Zionist Jewish occupiers. The first WMD they used was biological weapons as documented by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
In May 1948 the Zionist gangs besieged the well-fortified Palestinian city of Acre, which could stand the siege for a long time. The city water supply came from a nearby village name Kabri through an aqueduct. To shorten the siege and to enter the city, the Zionist gangs injected typhoid in the aqueduct. Many Palestinians and some 55 British soldiers, who were in the city, got infected. This crime was called operation "Shlach Lachmecha" as described by the Israeli military historian Urin Milstein [Wendy Barnaby's "The Plague Makers: The Secret World of Biological Warfare", London, Vision Paperbacks, 1997, pp 114-116]
The ICRC delegate Mr. De Meuron, sent a series of reports under the reference of G59/1/GC, G3/82, from 6th to about 19th of May 1948 describing the conditions of the city population as struck by a sudden typhoid epidemic and requested efforts to combat it. The minutes of an emergency meeting between Mr. De Meuron and the British Medical Services officers stated that the infection was "water borne." Burdened by the epidemic the city fell easy prey to the Zionist gangs, who went into a killing spree and a systematic looting campaign as reported by Lieutenant Petite, a French UN observer. He reported the cold-blooded murder of at least 100 Arab civilians, who refused to evacuate the city as ordered by the Zionists. Some of them were captured by the Zionist terrorists and were forced at gun point to drink cyanide; the case of Mohamed Fayez Soufi is one example as documented in "The Palestinian Catastrophe" by Michael Palumbo.
This crime of poisoning Acre's water supply leading to the fall of the city, the forceful evacuation of its inhabitants, and the looting of its treasures, whetted the appetite of the Zionists to repeat the crime. They tried it again in Gaza against the Egyptian forces, but failed. The two Zionist infiltrators, who were sent on this mission, were captured by the Egyptians. . .
The Zionist crimes did not stop then, but targeted Egypt and Syria. . . spreading Cholera in Egypt and Syria in 1947/48. . .
With Syria giving up its chemical weapons, now is the perfect opportunity to enforce the chemical weapons convention on all the countries in the region, including Israel, to free it from this WMD. Contrary to what Obama said, the convention does not specifically refer to just the use of chemical weapons, but also to its production and storage.
Will Obama, the peace-prize winner, prove that "the United States has been the anchor of global security . . . for nearly seven decades" as he claimed in his speech and demonstrate that the Americans are really "exceptional" as he boasted, or will he turn a blind eye to the Israeli criminal chemical attacks and the largest stockpile of WMD, like his many predecessors???

A 'Nuclear-Free Zone' in the Middle East? Why Israel will not Join the Non-Proliferation Treaty
September 27, 2013 The Obama administration is not seeking any negotiations with Iran unless they stop its nuclear program which will not happen. Iran will insist that they are signatories to the NPT and have an "inalienable right" to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes. Israel will not be a signatory to the NPT because "This resolution is deeply flawed and hypocritical. It ignores the realities of the Middle East and the real threats facing the region and the entire world" according to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Another reason Israel will not sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty is because they are victims of the Holocaust® which is why they have violated hundreds of UN Security Council resolutions and used chemical weapons on the Palestinians. The talks between Iran and the US that will be held in Geneva will fail come October because the US wants to dominate Iran. Iran has its principles it will stand by, but so will the US on Israel's behalf. The US and its staunch allies want Syria, Lebanon, the Gaza strip and the West Bank and every nation on earth under their rule. That is the plan. . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

US, Saudis, Qatar Attempt 'Arab Spring' Retread in Sudan
September 28, 2013 The West has once again "coincidentally" arrayed its vast resources behind al-Mahdi's "revolution," which includes Al Qaeda-linked leaders like al-Turabi, once again illustrates that so-called "Islamic" extremism is a geopolitical tool both created and intentionally perpetuated by the West, both as a pretext for direct military invasion and occupation (Mali, Afghanistan) and as an inexhaustible proxy mercenary force for overthrowing targeted nations (Libya, Egypt, Syria). . .
Sudan shares borders with NATO-overthrown Libya, destabilized Egypt, and US military proxy Ethiopia. It is also across the Red Sea from Saudi Arabia itself. Both Libya and Egypt have sizable US-Saudi-Israeli-Qatari-backed terrorist organizations and their affiliated political armsthe Muslim Brotherhood being the most prominent. Sudan is a potential tinderbox made more volatile in recent years due to the Muslim Brotherhood's US-Saudi-Qatari-Israeli enabled rise, along with the Western-backed terrorist organizations, including Al Qaeda, that form it's armed factions.
The West's interest in Sudan is not causal or spontaneous. It was listed as one of several nations the US had intended to violently overthrow and subjugate as a client regime since at least 2001, revealed in a speech given by US Army General Wesley Clark in 2007. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Cell Phones & Wi-Fi? Are Children, Fetuses and Fertility at Risk?
September 21, 2013 "It may take some sort of catastrophe to get people's attention," said Frank Clegg, former president of Microsoft Canada and founder of Canadians 4 Safe Technology, referring to the increasing saturation of Wi-Fi technologies on the public at large, and especially, children.
Electromagnetic radiation from cell phones and other wireless technologies has indisputable biological, health and mental health effects . . . Radiation from cell phones and Wi-Fi . . . cause diminished reaction time, decreased brain motor function, social and emotional problems, and inability to focus on complex and long-term tasks in children.
Cell phone use linked to nine types of cancer and declines in sperm count and fertility. . . DNA mutations are irreversible . . . passed down to future generations . . . researchers from Yale University positioned a cell phone above a cage of pregnant mice. The phone was transmitting an uninterrupted active call for the entire 17 days of gestation. When the exposed offspring were later tested, they showed signs of ADHD, and reduced transmissions in the prefrontal cortex of the brain.
"It's not talking on the phone that matters; it's any time the phone is turned on. Every 900 milliseconds, whether you are using the phone or not, your cell phone has a spike in radiation because it is looking for a signal from the tower. . ."

By Boyd Reneau
There is no substitute for the Holy Ghost in your life. As a young man I had "accepted Christ" on two occasions if not more before coming to the Word; once in an Anglican Church and another time at a Pentecostal 'revival' meeting. But I later realized that I was still living the same old life with religious paraphernalia attached. My inner turmoil and confusion was troubling: believing the scriptures as I supposed but not experiencing the miraculous life-changing power I read about in the Bible. Something was dreadfully wrong. Would I have to accept Jesus again? And if so, in which Church? I decided I would simply lay aside that puzzling proposition; these things might just work themselves out.
As a boy I wanted to join the Scouts, go on expeditions, sit around a campfire and hear and tell stories, but that didn't work out. As a teenager I wanted to go abroad to boarding school, to study the sciences and learn of Earth's secrets. But neither did that work out. However, the most important things that happen to us are not those things we plan, but things God has planned for us from the foundation of the world.
A friend told me I should join one of the secret societies but reading up on it beforehand I found out their greatest secret was that Jesus is not their king and so I had no further interest in them. Nevertheless I wanted to belong to some kind of exclusive club with common goals and some higher purpose to which I could aspire. I decided to go to Church more and read the Bible in earnest. I read a scripture that said "Where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there am I in the midst of them." Oh, that was precious, and I knew I was on to something. To think that the blessed Christ of glory would be present in one's humble abode is a joy beyond compare. I intensified my reading of the scriptures. Though there was a joy in reading the Bible, the answers were not coming forth, I still had not found that peace like a river in my soul and my questions so bothered my study group that I was told I did not believe God and was asked not to return. This naturally left me torn within and even more confused.
I have never been in Africa's Sahara but doubt it would have anything more dire than the desert experience in those religious circles. They have nothing in them to impart life or quench a thirsting soul. I knew Gods Word was true, Something witnessed that way back in childhood, but where was the boldness and great confidence one should have? Where was the power to live an overcoming life in Christ day by day?
Then one day I read in the Gospel "Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break and the wine runs out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved" (Matthew 9:17). The awesome power of that Word struck me in such a profound way it stopped me right in my tracks. I would not partake and be filled with that new wine until the old bottlethe old man was made new.
In total desperation I cried out and said O God, I believe what I've read in the Bible but something stops me from going any further. Though I can't bargain with You, I'd prefer to die at this early age and go to be with Jesus than to live out three score and ten and die in this state and go Christ-less to the grave. Teach me Your fear God, I pleaded, so I could get to know and really understand what it is to accept Jesus in my life and have my sins forgiven that should I die I'd go to be with You. Two nights later a strong spirit of conviction and confession came over me that felt like it was ripping my soul from my body. Every wrong that I had done in my life, every thought it seemed came crystal clear into my mind. I trembled and wept, repented and cried out for mercy. When that was over, clear and distinct as ever, I heard a voice say "Did you not ask Me to teach you My fear?" I wept again still shaking, but this time for joy. A few days later a brother gave me the book "A Man Sent from God." The days of drought and famine were over; my journey to the eternal land of the millennium had begun. Bless the Lord!
I've never forgotten that experience and that parable of "new wine" that started God's Word opening up to me personally. That always takes me straight over to St. John chapter two where a marriage was being celebrated but the wine had run out. The Master gave His command and water, ordinary water was changed into wine; can we say "in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye?" What transforming Presence moved over those molecules of water to change them into wine? A wine that was so good "the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, and said to him, every man at the beginning sets forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but You have kept the good wine until now. That wedding was on the third day in Cana."
Christ and the saints of all Ages will shortly be gathered at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, and according to one of his prophecies concerning Israel Hosea said "Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for He has torn, and He will heal us; He has smitten, and He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us: in the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live in His sight." As that prophecy was given in 780BC we are now well into the third day. Hallelujah! For us the third day will begin the resurrection of the Church Age saints and the manifestation of the Sons of God.
Paul said he was made a minister according to the gift of the grace of God that he should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ (Ephesians 3:7-8). Paul's Word of testimony struck me when I compared his witness with the spiritual squalor and impoverished experience of men and women in religious circles today. One must be truly born again before the Word can become a living reality to one's soul. Today I'd like you to consider some of the rich treasures we have in Gods revealed Word.
Earth's midnight was approaching (Matthew 25:1-13); the world was reeling from the devastating effects of "the Second Woe" of Revelation 9:12 which saw Hiroshima and Nagasaki destroyed by atomic bombs in World War II; during this war over 60 million people or 2.5% of the world population were slaughtered. With all of his ingenuity, supposed culture and civilized outlook man is incapable of creating a better world, and although he will never acknowledge it, the greatest intellectual plans on the table for world peace and security are unbeknownst, the seemingly innocuous subtle plans of Satan striving for global dominion.
The scientific world is anticipating another revolution in science and theoretical physics that will unify all of the laws of mathematics and physics to explain and link all known physical phenomena enabling it to predict the outcome of any experiment conducted according to their hypothesis. Perhaps that computer model would solve mankind's problems. While in the ecclesiastical world of the 60s the heavenly Fire that lit the Azusa Street Revival initiating the Laodicean Church Age was for the most part a smoking ember replaced in many souls by a self-righteous spirit of complacency. Still, more spiritually-minded believers of that day, moved and burdened by the Holy Ghost, were praying in earnest not only for renewal and a spiritual breakthrough but like evangelist F. F. Bosworth, for God to send the "Son of Man Ministry" back to Earth as promised in Matthew 24:23 25:30, Luke 17:22 18:8, John 5:27 and elsewhere.
The answer would surely come but not as a further treatise on gravity and general relativity, or some encyclical from the Vatican in Rome. No, heaven had something far more profound and enduring, something far more stupendous. What happened would be a "quantum leap" beyond anything science or the "cloth" could dare imagine. The Lord Himself would descend from heaven with a Shout, and with His Holy Spirit anoint a humble man in the person of Brother William Marrion Branham, who like John the Baptist would introduce His Presence to the world. He would be inspired with heavenly wisdom to tie up all the loose ends of doctrine left unfinished by the Reformers and "finish the mystery of God" that had been sealed from the foundation of the world (I Thessalonians 4:16; Daniel 12:4, 9; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:4-7).
Nothing has been more profound in the two thousand year history of the New Testament Church through which the Holy Spirit had demonstrated signs and wonders and healings from the Day of Pentecost. Yet these gifts that were lost in the Dark Ages of Roman apostasy had already been restored in the Laodicean Church Age and now the Fullness of the Word would be revealed discerning the very thoughts of the heart (Luke 17:28-30; Hebrews 4:12; 13:8). This visitation was not like anything since the days of our Lord, nor was it as many ministers erroneously preachsomething that was always in the Church. This was the Messianic sign of the appearing of the Son of Man that preceded and accompanied a strategic and epochal fulfillment of major prophecies. Redemption was over, the Blood had left; the Mercy Seat was now a Judgment Seat, the rapture and first resurrection were imminent, and Christ wigged as Judge of all the Earth descended with the unsealed Book of Redemption open in His hand to claim His purchased possession. He placed Judgment on Rome, the beast that rose up out of the sea, and on the beast with two horns like a lamb signifying the separation of church and state in the Protestant USA that came up out of the earth (Revelation 10:1-7; 13:11).
Do you will recall in Revelation 16:13-16? "Three unclean spirits like frogs came out of the mouth of the Dragon [Imperial Rome that "stood before the woman to devour her Child as soon as it was born" (Revelation 12:3-4)], and out of the mouth of the beast [of Papal Rome (Revelation 13:2)], and out of the mouth of the false prophet [or first pope (Revelation 13:2-11)]. They are the spirits of demons, working miracles, which go forth to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And they gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue [for this is the time of "Jacob's trouble"] Armageddon" (Revelation 16:13-16).
This gathering is taking place now but the news media is controlled by the people of the king of these demons (Revelation 9:11) who, if they possessed this revelation would not allow the Sons of God to warn humanity. Now a frog always looks behind himself and these slimy unclean spirits look back to the First Nicaea Council of AD325 where Imperial Rome began to reorganize into a universal religious empire claiming power over heaven, earth and purgatory. Today the United States is speaking and acting like the Dragon of Imperial Rome, for she is the image of the beast. Soon the powers of church and state will unite as they did following the First Nicaea Council, and will once again force the mark of the beast (Revelation 13:3, 11-18).
But Gods visitation to His elect is in grace to reveal the mystery of the Kingdom and the mystery of Israel's blindness during this age; the mystery of the translation of the living saints at the end of this age, the New Testament Church as One Body composed of both Israelites and Gentiles, the Church as the Bride of Christ; the mystery of the living Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever; the mystery of God, even Christ, as the incarnate fullness of the godhead embodied, in Whom all Divine wisdom and godliness is restored to man. (Glory!)
We saw that great Sign in the sky when He came down and we heard the Voice of the Judge as He spoke. And what was the greatest ruling, verdict and decree ever given the entire universe? This that we heard in the sermon, The Rapture:
"You forgive me? I never done it. What are you forgiving me about?" See? But if I'm guilty, then I can be forgiven, but I'm still not just, because I did it. But the word "justified" is "though you never done it at all": justified. And then the Blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us so from sins, till it's put in the book of God's forgetfulness. He's the only One can do it. We can't. We can forgive, but not forget. I could forgive you, but I'll always remember you done these evil things. Then you're not just; you're forgiven."
"But in the sight of God the Bride is justified. She never done it in the first place. Amen."
"Standing there married to the virtuous Son of God, never sinned in the first place. Why? She was foreordained; she was trapped into this. And now when she heard the Truth and come forth, the Blood cleansed her. And She stands there virtuous. See? She's. . . No sin on Her at all" (William Branham, The Rapture, p. 33:162-163).
What Christ accomplished at Calvary will come into full effect as the universal kingdom of Satan comes tumbling down (Daniel 2:44). The mystery of iniquity and MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH have been revealed to His end-time Bride, as well as the mystery of the Serpent's seed (II Thessalonians 2:1-12; Revelation 17:1-6). The mystery of the baptism of the Holy Ghost without sensation (John 14:20; I Peter 3:1-17), the Pillar of Fire returning after 2,000 years and many others found in the prophet's 1962 Sermon "Is This the Sign of the End Sir?"
Believers' expectations were met and far exceeded as the lightning Presence of Christ filled the Earth with glory (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:27; Revelation 18:1). But because God operates in simplicity repentance of heart is required in order to see the beauty of the wisdom revealed.
In Ephesians chapter one Paul clearly showed the maturing of the individual saints and the Church they constituted. Their "predestination unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself"verse 5. Their "redemption through His blood and forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace"verse 7. God's grand purpose "That in the dispensation of the fullness of times He might gather together in One all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in Him"verse 10. "In whom you also trusted, after that you heard the Word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that you believed, you were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise"verse 13. "Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory"verse 14. And that's when Christ came down to loose the Seals, open the Book and reveal its sacred, contents to His prophet. He stepped forth from glory to claim His redeemed possession. From then onwards, the normal sequence changed to an exponential growth in the Body of Christ. Paul's prayer from verse 17, "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of himself" was something never before witnessed in the New Testament Church.
In his sermon Who is this Melchisedec, Brother Branham said "The first place Lot was not a prophet, that's right, or neither was he the messenger of the hour. So he didn't have any revelation of Him. It's exactly right. Lot could call them "lords," a dozen of them, he could still said, "lords."
"But no matter how many Abraham saw, it was still one Lord. There is God; this was the Melchisedec."
"Notice, after the battle was over, Melchisedec served His victorious child Communion; think of that, part of Himself. Now, we want to see here, in type here is in view the Communion. After the battle He gave of Himself, because the Communion is part of Christ. And after the struggle is over, after you've done got yourself whipped out, then's when you partake of Christ, become part of this Being. You get it?"
"Jacob wrestled all night and wouldn't turn Him loose until He blessed him. That's right, battled for Life. And after the battle is over, then God gives you of Himself. That is His true Communion" (p. 19:104-106). Glory to God!
This is not the baptism with the Holy Spirit we read of in verse 13. Brothers and sisters, this is a further far greater revelation and portion of God we receive face-to-face at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. Like Paul, Brother Branham did not fail to declare unto us all the counsel of God. And the God that was revealed was God over all creation.
Scientists would learn without equivocation the true origins of the universe, and were taken behind the scene on the grand stage of creation to a far deeper level of reality to behold in majesty "Him who is before all things, and by whom all things consist." Doctors of Medicine, the best in their field, when they had reached the extent of their knowledge and declared cases they could not handle 'impossible to be healed' saw God's grace heal sicknesses, sarcomas and all manner of deadly disease proving He is our wondrous Healer, Jehovah Rapha. They would learn that diseases were actually demonic spirits and although medication can assist in healing, faith in the power of God's Word casts out the root cause and sets men free.
The Deans of universities would discover that the way up is down, they may have disagreed with the Prophet's teaching on the 'original sin,' but they could not disprove the fact that Eve's PhD in education took she and her husband from incorruption to corruption and out of the Garden paradise with the loss of Adam's 'third pull.' From the 'gods' that they were sharing dominion over creation, they became slaves to sin and death. The Devil-incarnate Serpent lied then just as he lies today. With an unending hatred for Adams race, He ever seeks to steal, kill and destroy. As I write US Secretary of State John Kerry is addressing the House to get the United States, the Image to the beast in the natural to go kill and slaughter in Syria, hastening the world to the hot phase of the ongoing World War III to advance Lucifer's agenda and deliver world hegemony to his master. The end-time Message is CHRIST the mystery of God revealed, our one hope and door of escape from the insanity and coming holocaust.
Were education the panacea to the human predicament in our 'civilized' world, each nation would be a blissful utopia. But as Luke foretold "on the earth [there is] distress of nations, with perplexity" because they see no solution. Each country has more police officers than ever before, yet there is far more violent crime; more teachers are turning out greater numbers of graduates with qualification to provide a better living for themselves and their communities yet millions more are going into poverty each year. The fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil bears more politicians and lawyers than ever before yet the multiplication of legislation reflects their failure and an increase of lawlessness.
In contrast, we who have graduated on our knees beneath the Tree of Life without a bachelors degree show ourselves approved of God, for men "see that we been with Jesus" by our letters ABC, meaning "Always Believe Christ," and by the 'Token' of His Life on display. Although considered "ignorant and unlearned" our profession is "faith"; we are recipients of eternal Life and have each been inducted into Gods hall of fame. So the paradigm has shifted from works of learning under the anointing of the living creature with the face of a Man, to abundant grace poured out under the anointing of the living creature with the face of an Eagle rapturing us in the Spirit into the Lord's Day to see "things that must be after the Church Ages" (Revelation 1:10; 4:1-2). By the revelation of "THAT WHICH IS PERFECT" we have entered the Capstone: "PART-word is done away" and Christ is no longer a Mediator who can wink at ignorance of the fullness of His Word but as the Angel of the Presence He has descended with the open Book in His hand to reveal and guide us into all truth, consequently ignorance is no longer be possible, only error.
The understanding of His elect can no longer be influenced by psychology or theological guesswork, the Absolute of THUS SAITH THE LORD now rules in our hearts. "The secret of the Lord is with them that fear Him; and He will show them His Covenant" (Psalm 25:14). What were once God's secrets have been entrusted to the hearts of men who recognize they were foreknown of God in Christ before the world began and that they are the actual Attributes of His eternal thoughts awaiting His decreed season in which to manifest here on earth that they are the Sons of God.
Most who attended the tent meetings of Branham Campaigns rejoiced in the healings and miracles which eclipsed the sum of contemporary ministries, truly revealing "Jesus Christ the same, yesterday and today and forever" (Hebrews 13:8). But the Message of rapturing faith was reserved for Brother Branham's "spring lambs" born-again in this holy convocation after the opening of the Seven Seals of the Book of Revelation. The focus of Christian Ministry then shifted from discernment of spirit and healing of body, which was the children's bread, to "eating the little Book" and becoming One with our Head (Revelation 10:8-11). It is the revelation of the mysteries of the Seven Thunders hidden under the Seals that places each member of Christ's end-time Bride in the rapture.
If you had a piece of coal and a diamond sitting side by side, the carbon atoms in the coal and the carbon atoms in the diamond would be exactly alike. But the arrangement and form of the atoms in the diamond is such that unlike the soft pliable nature of coal which burns, it has hardness and lustre, which with the skilful hand of a cutter blazes with the fiery spectrum of a rainbow, and its rarity makes it precious. Talk of "joy unspeakable and full of glory," the hour of triumph and exuberance of Christ Bride had come. Rapturing faith revealed and imparted into the hearts of Gods elect will "materialize a new body" like Enoch's, changing our atoms into glorified form.
The Prophet said, "I thought, "Oh my God, one day there'll come a blast from heaven and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Them Old Testament saints back yonder who are waiting a blast forth and come out of there first and go into the resurrection; we'll drop right in line and going to the skies, these old mortal bodies changed and made like unto His own glorious body. What a parade that'll be when it starts heavenward some of these days in that rapturing time that lays ahead, oh, proudly displaying the Blood of Jesus Christ upon their chests, the Message of God in the hour that they lived in. That's the hour that we're looking forward to, brother" (The Rapture, p. 37:178).
There are so many other things the prophet revealed but you must be constantly in the Word to see them. In I Thessalonians 5:23 Paul said "And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." After the revelation of the Seven Seals Brother Branham reversed the order of these words to body, spirit and soul, teaching that the soul is the true you. This teaching alone separates saints in Christ's end-time Bride from millions of professing denominational Christians.
Something so tremendous is what he said concerning "The New Testament": "You are known when Jesus Christ lives in you by His Life and promised Word of this day reflects itself. See?"
"Now, the same Word that was reflected in Moses could not be reflected in Elijah, because that was another day. Same one that was reflected in Noah could not be in Moses, 'cause (See?) Noah built an ark. Moses led a people, just exactly what was promised. The same Light was reflected in one, wasn't in the other, but one told of the other one."
"And all the New Testament speaks of this hour. Jesus Christ speaks of this hour. Who is it then, some man? It's Jesus Christ, the Son of God manifesting, reflecting the Light on the Word that He promised for this day."
"When men see you living like Him, when he sees your character, your conduct with the Word just exactly like He was, the Word being manifested, then men will see Jesus Christ. They won't have to look around anywhere else, say, "What does this creed teach, what does that creed teach?" They'll know what God is when they see you" (Shalom, #22:1, p. 29:221-224). (Hallelujah!).
We read that correctly, "They'll know what God is when they see you!" What a wonder. Saints, you realize this is not church as usual or business as usual; this is crossing the riven veil where the glory never fails; we are living in the Presence of the King. All the New Testament speaks of this hour, and only with that correct understanding and the revelation of the Holy Spirit in this hour can the life of the Word be imparted into your soul. Small wonder we have all had difficulties in denominational circles. Without fail they all have Christ and the New Testament firmly in the past as a two thousand year old history. I was not the least bit surprised to read the comments of the former Anglican archbishop of Cape Town, South Africa, Desmond Tutu who said "I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven. No, I would say sorry, I mean I would much rather go to the other place. I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this." Bishop Tutu displays the dark aspect of Luke 17:28; his understanding does not reflect the glorious rainbow of God's Word. I did mention it was dire, a wilderness and wasteland alright. We are preaching to the totally lost.
Brother Branham said: "Now, we been speaking on Abraham, and I just kinda hitting the highlights, just what we would call the high points. And I just only wish that I had the opportunity and time now, that we could just take that Book of Genesis and break them down. We're just touching the high spots of it. If we could go back and pull in those Scriptures. . . I stayed on the Book of Revelation one time in my church for three years straight. That's constantly in services" (Jehovah Jireh, #59-0417). He is saying that there is more study for us to engage and far more to learn and understand.
"The trouble with our churches we look back and say, "Well, let's see what Mr. John Wesley said, what some of the others said." That's the reason science is so farther [advanced] in their field than religion is in its."
"Here three hundred years ago, a French scientist proved that if you'd go the terrific speed of thirty-five miles an hour, gravitation would take you off the earth. You think science would refer back to that today? They're going nineteen hundred miles an hour and still going on. They're pressing forward, looking forward. But we want to look back and see what Moody said; Sankey said; Finney said; Knox, Calvin; some of those. What they said was all right. That was for their Age, but we're going on."
"My grandfather rode a ox cart. I'm driving a Ford V8. My son will fly a jet plane. That's we're moving on. That's what religion ought to be. The coming of the Lord is at hand. The church ought to be moving on into the powers. Science can only climb so far and then it has to drop off, but we got untapped sources, that's never been touched, of the power, unlimited, of God, that we ought to be moving into. We're living a million miles under our privilege tonight, of privileges of Christians to be enjoying" (Believest Thou This, #60-0402).
Jesus said "It is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven"; we need no longer live below our privilege as Sons and Daughters of God but as His redeemed so He could have the preeminence to express Himself through us. Anyone who has read the Message knows that Brother Branham was against television and told us what he thought of it: "We rent from a woman that has television in her house. I never intend to have one in my house. No, sir. I don't want that thing in my house. I'd blow it out with my shotgun. I don't want nothing to do with that evil thing. No, sir" (Gods Power to Transform, p. 23:169).
His critics tried ever so much to make fun of that statement but I discovered recently that "news.com.au" reported that "Australian researchers have found that for every hour of television viewed by a person over the age of 25, their life expectancy is reduced by 22 minutes" so the laugh is on them. Please pass the message on, tell folks the Word is true.
There are so many other wonderful things we could focus on but I just pick one more gem before closing, and it deals with the tenth fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23
"By their fruit," Jesus said, "you shall know them." Man does not gather grapes off of a thistle even though the thistle be right in the grapevine. That could be possible, but the fruit will tell it."
"What is the fruit? The Word for the season; that's what it is, their teaching. The teaching of what? The teaching of the season, what time it is. Man's doctrine, denominational doctrine, or God's Word for the season."
"Now, the time gets away so quick, that, we could bear on that a long time, but I'm sure that you here present, and I'm sure you across the nation, can see what I'm trying to tell you, for we don't have too much longer to stay on it."
"But you might see that the anointing gets on the unjust, the false teachers, and causes them to do exactly what God told them not to do; but they'll do it anyhow. Why? They cannot help it. How can a thistle be anything else but a thistle? No matter how much good rain's sprinkled on it, it's got to be a thistle" (Anointed Ones at the End Time, p. 13:59-60).
I have had experiences with brothers who, at times talk of dying, or not wanting to be here as they see the pressures mounting and fail to confess the teaching of the season as we find in I Corinthians 15:51-52 and many other such scriptures. "Behold, I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed".
All the Word is one glorious revelation of Jesus Christ and His mighty power working to gather glory unto Himself. May He grant you special favours, open new doors and pour you out a blessing you do not have room enough to receive as you explore more deeply in His holy Word. nl804.htm
