Bible Believers’ Newsletter #625

“We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . .”
ISSN 1442-8660

Once again it is our privilege to greet you in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We appreciate your fellowship.

It is with pleasure that we present another article from contributing author, Henry Makow. Ongoing developments in the federation of world religions under a revived Holy Roman Empire feature in our current news and in one of the links in friend Henry’s article. It is important that you read the links and references to confirm the fidelity of our teachings and to ensure your complete understanding based upon Scriptural and other factual material.

Developments in Rome, Israel, the Middle East, Russia and China are moving the actors of Daniel 11, Ezekiel 38 and 39, and Revelation 7 – 19 into their positions. In this regard, Newsletter #545 noted, “At the end of the Gentile dispensation Russia and her Muslim allies will attack Israel, living in overconfident careless security. Sheba (Yemen) and Dedan (United Arab Emirates), and the merchants of Tarshish (a colony of Tyre in southern Spain), though not taking an active part against Israel, are well pleased to see others do it, and ready to deal in the ill-gotten spoil of the invaders. Gain is before godliness with these mercantile peoples, and as a secondary thought Russia will purpose to lay claim to the mineral riches of the Dead Sea.” Are Britain, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc., the “young lions,” offspring, or colonies of Tarshish prophesied in Ezekiel 38:13? Along with the UN they appear weary of 60 years of chutzpah; Israel is Rothschild’s fiefdom, another colony of the ‘City of London’ whose future they have planned. Will they lift their hand and allow Russia and her Islamic neighbours to discipline this loose cannon? One of the titles of Spanish king, Don Juan Carlos, a frequent traveler to the Middle East, is King of Jerusalem; hereby he is king not only of the Israelis but also of the Palestinians.

Should you happen to be in Nigeria this Easter, be sure you attend the Gathering of the Endtime Saints at Bible Believers’ Church in Owerri. You will be blessed.

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.

Benedict XVI visits Lutheran Church in Rome

Benedict XVI delivers holily in Lutheran churchMarch 14, 2010 — On Sunday, Pope Benedict XVI visited a Lutheran church in Rome with the purpose of promoting unity by emphasizing the ways in which Catholics and other Christians bear common witness to Christ. In the German-language service, in which both the Pope and a Lutheran pastor gave homilies, the Pontiff affirmed, “We hear many laments about the fact that there are no new developments in ecumenism, but we must say, and we can say it with much gratitude, that there have already been elements of unity”. . .

Jakob Fugger and the Reformation

Jakob Fugger played important roles in the unfolding of the protestant reformation. It turns out that in the year 1500 the city of Rome and its Holy Places were in disrepair. . . the Papacy that was highly dependent on Pilgrims expenditures and donations for support. . . in modern terms . . . religious tourism.

Pope Leo X (born Giovanni de’ Medici, the second son of Lorenzo the Magnificent, ruler of the Florentine republic) decided to renovate the old religious sites. This included building the modern St. Peter’s Cathedral, the Sistine Chapel and related buildings as well as the plaza in front of the Cathedral. To do this took skilled artists like Michelangelo and lots of money. . . Jakob Fugger financed the building of what we know of as Vatican City . . . the beginning of a major financial crisis for the Catholic Church.

Leo sold high church office to Princes who could pay the necessary money (between 1495 and 1520, 88 of 110 bishoprics in Germany, Hungary, Poland and Scandinavia were appointed by Rome on the basis of Fugger money transfers). And allowed the sale of indulgences not only for past sins as had been customary in the past but for future sins (so you could guarantee in advance that your planned affair would not lead to a painful afterlife). Dominican Friar Tetzel was the best known of the indulgence sellers. The Friar’s most famous jingle was “As soon as the coin in the coffer rings, a soul from Purgatory upward springs.”

Around 1520 there were many people both inside and outside the church concerned about financial and moral corruption of the church and her clergy. . . Cardinal Cajetan told Luther to recant his many statements at odds with the Papacy’s positions. It was a Jakob Fugger’s house where Luther refused to recant. . . There will be a FUGGER EXHIBITION in Munich from March 10 to May 22, 2010. Full story: globalregional.de

The First Time I heard of Barack

Obama November 11, 2008 — One evening, during a trip to Moscow early in 1992, as the evening wore on, the wife of my host said, “What if I told you that you will have a black president very soon and he will be a Communist? . . . This is not some idle talk. He is already born and he is educated and being groomed to be president right now. You will be impressed to know that he has gone to the best schools of Presidents. He is what you call “Ivy League.” You don’t believe me, but he is real and I even know his name. His name is Barack. His mother is white and American and his father is black from Africa. That’s right, a chocolate baby! And he’s going to be your President.”

“It’s all been thought out. His father is not an American black so he won’t have that social slave stigma. He is intelligent and he is half white and has been raised from the cradle to be an atheist and a Communist. He’s gone to the finest schools. He is being guided every step of the way and he will be irresistible to America.” She rattled off a complete litany. He was from Hawaii. He went to school in California. He lived in Chicago. He was soon to be elected to the legislature. “Have no doubt: he is one of us, a Soviet.” America would have to be converted to Communism and Barack was going to pave the way. Full story: rense.com

Comment: As a student at Columbia University, Obama was recruited over 25 years ago by Zbigniew Brzezinski to be groomed as the president to succeed George W. Bush in 2008. (See Newsletter #620). Neil Sankey, a former British policeman who’s now a licensed private investigator in Los Angeles, initiated a preliminary background investigation of Barack Obama and uncovered 49 addresses and 16 different Social Security numbers.


Final Destination Iran?

March 14, 2010 — Hundreds of powerful US “bunker-buster” bombs are being shipped from California to the British island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean in preparation for a possible attack on Iran. . . the US government signed a contract in January to transport 10 ammunition containers to the island. . .

Experts say that they are being put in place for an assault on Iran’s controversial nuclear facilities. There has long been speculation that the US military is preparing for such an attack, should diplomacy fail to persuade Iran not to make nuclear weapons. . . The Sunday Herald reported in 2007 that stealth bomber hangers on the island were being equipped to take bunker-buster bombs. . . Superior Maritime Services, will be paid $699,500.00 to carry many thousands of military items from Concord, California, to Diego Garcia. Crucially, the cargo includes 195 smart, guided, Blu-110 bombs and 192 massive 2000lb Blu-117 bombs.

“They are gearing up totally for the destruction of Iran,” said Dan Plesch, director of the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy at the University of London, co-author of a recent study on US preparations for an attack on Iran. “US bombers are ready today to destroy 10,000 targets in Iran in a few hours,” he added. . .

Comment: Interestingly, the very people the US is serving in this cowardly and treacherous premeditated slaughter will blast the United States from the face of the globe seven years after this latest US genocide.

Israeli Professor Martin Levi van Creveld has threatened, “We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force. Let me quote General Moshe Dayan: “Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.” We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that this will happen before Israel goes under.” Golda Meir stated, “If ever Israel was in danger of being defeated on the battlefield, it would be prepared to take the region and even the whole world down with it”.

Candid testimony to Israel’s utter dearth of faith and dependence on self-works. With a death wish, the US overlooks the fact Israel has nuclear-armed submarines roaming the oceans able to destroy any US city.


Bursting the Malachi Martin Bubble
by Henry Makow PhD
zionist Jesuit Malachi MartinMarch 17, 2010 – Powerful forces have maintained the fiction that Malachi Martin left the Jesuit Order voluntarily or on principle. In fact, this prominent church critic was forced to leave the priesthood because he was a scoundrel and a philanderer.

By 1962, he had alienated the affections of at least four housewives and then dropped them.

When one spurned woman asked Martin’s brother in Dublin where Malachi was, she was told:

“Dear girl. I don’t know. I must tell you, you are the fourth woman who has come here asking me the same question about Malachi. All of them have essentially the same story to tell. That they were in love with Malachi and thought Malachi was in love with them.”

“Four woman?” she demanded. “The same story?”

He nodded, and said, “And one rather attractive young man.”

This account can be found in Robert Kaiser’s book, “Clerical Error” (2002). The woman was his wife (p. 284-285).

Kaiser was the TIME magazine correspondent in Rome in the early 1960’s. Martin was a source who became a close family friend. Martin didn’t just break up Kaiser’s family. (Kaiser and his wife Mary had two young children). It was much darker. To allay suspicions, Martin mobilized a network of influential contacts to smear Kaiser and have him committed as a paranoid schizophrenic.

Zionist Agent and Liar

Martin’s books exposed satanic practices in the Catholic church, and the Pope’s role in the New World Order. While pretending to be against world government and the decline of traditional faith and practice, Martin went a long way to discredit the church. His many books were published by Illuminati mind-controller Simon and Schuster, which was a sign that something was fishy.

Kaiser’s book, on the other hand, is published by Continuum which bills itself as “unconstrained by the interests of any global media group or academic institution, and based in London and New York.”

In it, Kaiser recalls that Martin started hanging out with two officials of the New York-based American Jewish Committee and flashing $100 bills. The Jews were particularly concerned that the 1962 Second Vatican Council pass “the Jewish Schema” which absolved Jews of blame for Christ’s Crucifixion and by implication accept guilt for 2000 years of anti-Semitism.

This is a typical example of how Illuminati mind-controllers invert good and evil. The Crucifixion of Christ was part of an ancient conspiracy against God and man that is reaching fruition with the New World Order.

“Martin was their lobbyist.” Kaiser wrote. “These Jews were using him and paying him well for his help (p. 190).

Martin was the secretary to Cardinal Augustin Bea, a Marrano who spearheaded the Schema and a general liberalization of church dogma and practice. And according to an article in Wikipedia, Martin passed confidential documents to the American Jewish Committee, which is a front for Illuminati bankers. He also wrote under pseudonyms many inflammatory articles for Illuminati magazines like Harper’s describing the foot dragging of Vatican conservatives.

Martin had a reputation as a liar. Mark Owen cites psychiatrist Dr. Morgan Scott Peck’s book “Glimpses of the Devil” about possession and exorcism. According to Peck, Martin, although a formidable scholar and polyglot (17 languages), could by turns be a “pathological liar” and a “leprechaun.”

In an email, Owen told me that Peck said that in his book “Hostages to the Devil” Martin claimed he performed exorcisms that were actually performed by Peck.

Maturity

Bob Kaiser’s book, “Clerical Error” is also about attaining maturity. Kaiser spent 10 years as a Jesuit himself. He makes the point that immaturity is really a function of having “idols” and taking guidance from “authorities” like the Jesuits or “experts.”

Kaiser was fooled by Martin’s collar and couldn’t see what was happening in his own home. Then instead of taking action, he sought help from the Jesuit Order, who generally prevaricated. His so-called friends didn’t alert him.

Kaiser learned that maturity is not so much gaining wisdom as confidence in one’s own judgment, trusting oneself no matter one’s limitations.

“Thou shalt have no other gods before Me” is really an order from God to all of us: to take charge of ourselves, think our own thoughts, and feel our own feelings. In other words, to “grow up” (p. 262).

For a lot of us, maturity has been realizing that no one knows very much, and there are a lot of unscrupulous, stupid and evil people in the world.

One of these was Malachi Martin. Just a month ago I posted an article about his claims of a “satanic enthronement in the Vatican.” I had always regarded him as a good guy although I wondered about his Jewish publisher.

Now, I would avoid his work, because I regard him as a classic example of the Illuminati phony opposition. Martin pretended to oppose the dismantling of the Catholic Church while secretly advancing it. His personal behavior revealed where his true loyalties lay.

China finally learns the Truth about the Jews

March 5, 2010 — The author of the book, “Currency Wars,” Song Hongbing, claims that behind world-changing events like the battle of Waterloo, Adolf Hitler’s rise to power, President Kennedy’s assassination, and the deep recession in Asia during the 1990s stood an intricate conspiracy aimed at increasing Jews’ wealth and influence.

Song, a Chinese computer engineer and history buff who resides in the United States, writes that almost every defining historical moment has been instigated by Jewish bankers, and mainly the Rothschild family, which Song says dominates the global banking system, including the US Federal Reserve System. . .

Toxic Water

February 23, 2010 — Residents in a Tasmanian plantation community are drinking water which kills human cells. The toxin in the water has been matched to the toxin in the leaves of a common and “genetically enhanced” strain of plantation tree, Eucalyptus Nitens . . . sold to plantation companies around Australia. Water from Tasmania’s George River . . . has been found by six separate laboratories to kill human cells. . . A local GP had joined forces with a marine ecologist to help pay for research when she noticed a number of patients around the small community of St. Helens had “rare auto-immune diseases”. . .

“Three-quarters of the forest plantation estate in Tasmania is planted in these trees . . . there’s an export industry here to Chile and China and other states of Australia. “There are billions of dollars involved . . .” Tasmanian director of public health Dr. Roscoe Taylor . . . said a 2004 investigation had not confirmed “unusual rates of illness or cancers” in the area. Oyster farmers on the George River have complained of oyster deaths since 2004, when their entire harvest died.

Comment: It has taken a number of years to discover this unfortunate side effect of the genetic modification. I wonder what will be the cost of removing the trees and any traces of their toxin before other problems are discovered? Is it any wonder that the public are wary of consuming GM food? This revelation has proved beyond doubt that the ramifications of GM technology are not detected at the outset. . . Full story: alor.org


By Way of Deception Thou shalt do War

March 18, 2010 – Newly discovered footage of a terrorist attack perpetrated by an Israel Defense Forces soldier in the Arab town of Shfaram five years ago indicates that authorities were aware of plans to commit the attack . . .

In August 2005, Eden Natan-Zada opened fire in a passenger bus in Shfaram with his army-issued M-16 assault rifle, killing four. Immediately following the attack, a large crowd gathered around the bus, surrounding the gunman and beating him to death. Last year, prosecutors charged 12 individuals with taking part in the lynching of Natan-Zada, a move that ignited criticism from the Israeli-Arab community. . . lawyer, Maher Talhami, said the cameras followed the trail of the bus in which Natan-Zada rode in entering Shfaram. Immediately after the attack, the footage shows angry mobs gathering at the scene. . . Talhami said the timing of the filming indicates defense officials knew of Natan-Zada’s plan to perpetrate the attack. “We are talking about video shot by a drone,” Talhami said. “Obviously not every private individual or civilian agent operates a drone on his own volition. The method of surveillance of the bus proves that there was early information available to the defense establishment”. Full story: haaretz.com

Correspondent Barry Chamish wrote: “Back in ’97, PM Netanyahu couldn’t get his Hebron withdrawal past his cabinet. The next day, an IDF soldier, Noam Friedman, who had just spent 3 months in a psychiatric ward, took a bus to Hebron and shot up the Arab market in front of numerous television cameras which happened to be there as well. Due to international pressure, the withdrawal was passed by the cabinet that evening.

I also told my audience the outrage would come from Kach, since the Shabak runs the organization. It is no coincidence that a few days before, Kach members publicly staged a Pulsa Dinura, death curse ceremony against Ariel Sharon. That trick was played one month before Rabin’s murder by Kach members led by one Avigdor Eskin. So, surprise, surprise, the Shabak aided by IDF intelligence pulled the old rabbit out of its hat just when they were supposed to. As usual, the patsy was Yemenite [or Sephardic, not an Ashkenazi “Jew”]. Here are the predictable details:

A Jewish soldier who went AWOL from the IDF one month ago killed four people and wounded 12 others when he opened fire inside a bus in an Arab town in the Galilee.

Jew Opens Fire in Bus, Kills Four Arabs

August 4, 2005 – Angry residents lynched the 19-year-old following the shooting. He was identified as Eden Natan Zada from Rishon L’tzion, a city south of Tel Aviv. Israeli media reported he recently moved to the Kfar Tapuach community in northeast Samaria after turning to religion and becoming involved in extreme political activism, but the administrator of the community said he never heard of the man.

The killer’s parents, worried over their son’s radical change, said they had asked the army to take away their son’s weapon but were told by officers there was no need to do so. Israeli media tried to link the murder with anti-expulsion protests and pointed out the murderer had refused to take part in the planned expulsion. Former MK Rabbi Chanan Porat told questioning interviewers there is absolutely no connection to be made between the anti-expulsion protests and the murder.

The bus reached the town of Shfaram, which is made up of Christians and Moslems from Haifa, when Zada, dressed in a Border Police uniform, opened fire and killed the driver, another man and two girls. He continued to shoot at people inside and outside the bus as the bus continued to roll down the residential street. The bus came to a halt and at least one bus passenger managed to disarm the gunman. . . Zada was in an IDF unit other than the Border Police and it is not known how or why he obtained the Border Police uniform. MK Uri Ariel (National Union) said the IDF must investigate why the murderer had his weapon with him after having been AWOL for an extended period of time.

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said, “This was a reprehensible act by a bloodthirsty Jewish terrorist who sought to attack innocent Israeli citizens. . . I send condolences to the families of those who were murdered and my best wishes for a quick recovery to those who were wounded. The entire State of Israel, regardless of race, religion or sex, strongly condemns this act of terrorism.”

The Council of Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria (Yesha Council) announced its shock, denouncing the murder as being committed by someone “crazy.” Yesha spokesmen criticized “the cynical use of the incident by certain political entities to try to make a connection between the serious incident and the democratic, legitimate and nonviolent protest against the expulsion from Gush Katif being waged. “Repeatedly referring to him as ‘a settler’ even though he was not a resident of any settlement is an attempt to slander a whole population who is leading a democratic protest in an exemplary way. It would be better to act with more responsibility instead of criticizing only in order to gain dubious political benefits.” Full story: israelnationalnews.com

Correspondent Barry Chamish wrote: Once again, the sociopath Sharon had four Arabs killed and 16 others shot just to get his little Gaza withdrawal done. The shooter was another in a long line of Shabak patsies which includes Yigal Amir and Baruch Goldstein. As always, the “leaders” of the Right and the religious communities cower in shame over the incident. None dare actually blame the real perpetrators—the government of Israel and its internal security apparatus. . .

In the early 50s, Peres was Director of Israel’s Atomic Energy Commission. In his worst of many crimes, he sacrificed the lives some 10,000 Sephardic, mostly Yemenite and Moroccan children, in ghastly atomic experiments, in exchange for American nuclear bomb plans. The horrid details are in the film: The Ringworm Children . . . Perhaps your readers would like these links: youtube 1 youtube 2 youtube 3 youtube 4 youtube 5. While the CFR pushes Israel into the flames, Peres exploits the situation by making it look like the Vatican is pulling the nation out. Watch for a “peace plan” from Rome soon.


US tells Israel: ‘You are undermining America, endangering Troops’

March 16, 2010 — The “Special Relationship” is DEAD. Learn some of the “WHY” being kept from you.

Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Clinton and Joint Chief’s Chairman Mike Mullen have all recently visited Israel on two issues, reliable information that Israel was planning an attack on Iran, a plan designed to push America into a war our leaders believe is both wrong and likely to risk a global nuclear confrontation with Russia and the building of a massive housing project on the Arab side of Jerusalem in violation of numerous agreements, a project that is likely to cause a spike in world terrorism and send thousands of new fighters to Afghanistan to face American forces there.

This is the worst point in the history of the relationship between the US and Israel since the founding of that nation in 1948 but these are not the only reasons, not these and the arrogant and intractable attitude of Israel’s leaders nor being caught in lie after lie, lies told to their financial backer and closest ally, the United States. Here is some background on CENTOM Commander, General Petraeus’ shocking briefing :

On Jan. 16, two days after a killer earthquake hit Haiti, a team of senior military officers from the USCentral Command (responsible for overseeing American security interests in the Middle East), arrived at the Pentagon to brief Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Michael Mullen on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The team had been dispatched by CENTCOM commander Gen. David Petraeus to underline his growing worries at the lack of progress in resolving the issue. The 33-slide, 45-minute PowerPoint briefing stunned Mullen. The briefers reported that there was a growing perception among Arab leaders that the US was incapable of standing up to Israel, that CENTCOM’s mostly Arab constituency was losing faith in American promises, that Israeli intransigence on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was jeopardizing US standing in the region, and that Mitchell himself was (as a senior Pentagon officer later bluntly described it) “too old, too slow . . . and too late.”

The January Mullen briefing was unprecedented. No previous CENTCOM commander had ever expressed himself on what is essentially a political issue; which is why the briefers were careful to tell Mullen that their conclusions followed from a December 2009 tour of the region where, on Petraeus’s instructions, they spoke to senior Arab leaders. “Everywhere they went, the message was pretty humbling,” a Pentagon officer familiar with the briefing says. “America was not only viewed as weak, but its military posture in the region was eroding.” But Petraeus wasn’t finished: two days after the Mullen briefing, Petraeus sent a paper to [JCS Chairman Mullen—and not directly to] the White House requesting that the West Bank and Gaza (which, with Israel, is a part of the European Command—or EUCOM), be made a part of his area of operations. Petraeus’s reason was straightforward: with US troops deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, the US military had to be perceived by Arab leaders as engaged in the region’s most troublesome conflict.

The Mullen briefing and Petraeus’s request hit the White House like a bombshell. . . pressing Israel once again on the settlements issue, sending Mitchell on a visit to a number of Arab capitals and dispatching Mullen for a carefully arranged meeting with the chief of the Israeli General Staff, Lt. General Gabi Ashkenazi. . . Certainly, it was thought, Israel would get the message.

Israel didn’t. When Vice President Joe Biden was embarrassed by an Israeli announcement that the Netanyahu government was building 1,600 new homes in East Jerusalem, the administration reacted. But no one was more outraged than Biden who, according to the Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth, engaged in a private, and angry, exchange with the Israeli Prime Minister: “This is starting to get dangerous for us,” Biden reportedly told Netanyahu. “What you’re doing here undermines the security of our troops who are fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. That endangers us and it endangers regional peace.” Yedioth Ahronoth went on to report: “The vice president told his Israeli hosts that since many people in the Muslim world perceived a connection between Israel’s actions and US policy, any decision about construction that undermines Palestinian rights in East Jerusalem could have an impact on the personal safety of American troops fighting against Islamic terrorism.” The message couldn’t be plainer: Israel’s intransigence could cost American lives. . .

The deterioration started long before this and can be tracked by changing perceptions in the Obama administration whose leaders are heavily “pro-Israel” but lack the extremist convictions of the Zionist/extremist group that surrounded President Bush. When Obama took office, even Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, one of the most prominent Israeli proponents in the country, had become aware of the extent of Israeli involvement in areas that had taken the “special relationship” into an area of disaster for the United States. This is what was discovered:

  1. The military and intelligence organizations in the United States had been penetrated by Israel, not only through our normal broad partnership but the planting of “moles,” many from the Christian Zionist community who were taking direction from Israel and not the United States. The result wasn’t just limited to falsification of intelligence, both leading to endless phony terror alerts and non-existent enemies but to skewing operations in a manner to guarantee their failure with significant American cost in both lives and money.
  2. The massive spy network uncovered by Sibel Edmonds had been tracked, almost entirely to Israel. Edmonds had been silenced by National Security Letters issued by John Ashcroft, leading Christian Zionist (sic) in the Bush Administration and constant “private” visitor to Israel. After 6 years of spying at the highest levels of the White House, Department of State, Congress and the Pentagon, the network grew even more, accessing nearly all top US intelligence and selling it on the open market.
  3. Most disastrous of the stolen intelligence was the data on the new JSF, the F35 Joint Strike Fighter. All data on this new $300 billion dollar project fell into Israeli hands in 2008, information that may have turned the air superiority fighter meant to rule the skies for the next 30 years into a “target sled.” This is the biggest intelligence attack on the US since the Pollard/Israeli scandal. Pollard, an American Jew reputedly associated with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, stole America’s battle plans for the defense of NATO, our entire spy/surveillance network plans and full ultra-top secret detailed plans that could have negated America’s nuclear deterrent during the most dangerous times of the Cold War. Pollard’s information was sold to the Soviets by Israel, information that could have let Russia win World War III.
  4. The Israeli attack on Gaza was timed to an American change of administration and done without consultation. Broad intelligence sources indicate that the attacks were not in retaliation to any terrorist activity but are spoken of “behind closed doors” by top US officials as ethnic cleansing not unlike the issues that brought NATO into conflict with Serbia. The systematic nature of the attack, destroying water-treatment, schools, hospitals, food storage, power generation and the massive loss of life, especially among children, has soured many in the Obama camp on Israel.
  5. Israel’s use of the Jewish lobby in the US to hold up President Obama’s domestic agenda and their use of Jewish controlled media to embarrass the President has caused more bitterness. With Jewish controlled/owned Fox, CNN (Wolf Blitzer, formerly of the Jerusalem Post), ABC, CBS, NBC networks and other major news sources all working in concert against, particularly President Obama’s health care initiative, Israel is seen as “flexing its muscle” even more. The believed rationale is the removal of all non-Jews from Israel, dead or alive, with a powerless US government paying the bills and fighting the massive terrorist backlash for generations.
  6. The Israeli agenda of working with India to destabilize Pakistan, organize terror attacks there and, less publicly known, in Afghanistan and Iraq, some against American targets, can no longer be ignored by the current administration, Secretary Gates, General’s Mullen and Petraeus. Israeli’s “dynamic duo,” Senators McCain and Lieberman, though still holding important committee assignments on the hill, are being held increasingly in disrepute in the United States. When Israel sends these two on errands, it no longer carries the weight and power of the United States as it had during the Bush administration.
  7. Re-examination of a number of terrorist attacks during the Bush administration, particularly in Europe, show a clear “Mossad footprint,” something adding credence to the hypothesis that the “war on terror” and intelligence failures in Iraq had been heavily influenced by Israeli sources, many of the same individuals tied to the Edmonds spy affair, many close to, not only Israel but President Bush and Vice President Cheney. Recently a secret El Al/Israel flight from JFK in New York has been discovered, a flight authorized by top Bush officials, one previously kept secret and now being tied covering up 9/11 intelligence failures. The El Al Boeing 747 left only hours after the 9/11 attack, at a time all air traffic in the United States was grounded.

With nearly all Arab/Muslim governments aligned behind the US, including a softening of tensions with Iran, Israel feels it must act quickly. However, the US no longer has any strategic requirement for a relationship with Israel. What had been seen as a potential ally, perhaps now wrongly so, in the region is now generally perceived as a “runaway train” that the United States can no longer go to the United Nations time after time to protect from sanctions, 32 times thus far. Israel clearly feels it has the United States “over a barrel” with control of media, a massive AIPAC lobby working against American policy and huge new financial influence over the upcoming Congressional elections handed over to them by the highly controversial 5/4 Supreme Court “free speech” election funding decision clearly meant to aid Israel further in her ability to intimidate Congress.

Unofficially, Israel has moved to the top of America’s “terrorist watch list” and is now drifting toward “evildoer” status, not only by the White House but, more broadly, through top defense officials who now perceive Israel as a threat to the United States. Full story: veteranstoday.com

Comment: This illustrates how the ‘City of London’ rules the USA through the Council on Foreign Relations.

The greatest mistake Israel ever made was the 19th chapter of Exodus, after grace had already provided a saviour, had already provided a lamb, had already provided deliverance, they said, “Let us do something” (William Branham, Water from the Rock, #55-0224). 1,400 years later they assimilated the Edomites, “The people against whom the Lord has indignation for ever” because their forefather Esau rejected the Holy Spirit for a bowl of stew and married into Cain’s lineage, thus his offspring bear the curse of Canaan: not being on the Book of Life, which is the genealogy of Adam, they are irredeemable (Malachi 1:3-4; Genesis 9:25; Revelation 20:15). As a consequence, 160 years later Israel crucified Messiah and called His Blood upon their own heads (Matthew 27:25). 700 years later they assimilated the Khazars—Serpent’s seed, sworn to kill the Israelites (Genesis 27:39-41). According to their own statistics, over 90% of them Serpent’s seed God set “at enmity” with Adam’s race (Genesis 3:15).

These non-Semitic, anti-Semitic so-called or self-styled Jews are the enemy of the children of Abraham, Isaac and Israel whom Moses led from Egyptian bondage. As they deceived Israel and the United States, these “hewers of wood and drawers of water” (Joshua 9) have deceived the church that calls itself Spiritual Israel. Brother Branham warned you! God called Israel out of Egyptian bondage and she followed the Pillar of Fire until overcome by reasoning and was cursed under the Law of sin and death. Today He has called His end-time Bride out from bondage to the world church system to follow the Pillar of Fire, but like Esau you want to patronize Jewry, the mother of Catholicism, under their lewd holy book, the Babylonian Talmud, crucify to yourself the Son of God afresh, and bring His Blood upon your shoulders.

Brother Branham said, “America was founded upon the reverence and the respects of our forefathers. They were religious men, therefore, God will protect this nation forever.” He will have no more respects for us than He did for Israel. Israel was His called and chosen people. And when they sowed, they reaped what they sowed. And that goes for individuals. No matter how holy, or [which] church we claim to belong to, or how good we try to live, God is obligated to His Word, to judge us according to what He has said” (Handwriting on the Wall, p. 5:36-37).


The Whole Creation Groans in Travail – Part VI

After the midst of Daniel’s Seventieth Week Rome will usurp authority over the self-styled Jews at the dedication of their new temple and abrogate her covenant with the international banksters. She will then force her mark of the beast and martyr Israel’s two prophets; after three and a half days Israel will be born in one day and martyred at sometime before Armageddon erupts and destroys life on earth.

Christ-rejecting Gentiles have shut their ears to “sound doctrine.” Denominational ministers and many within the circle of this Message are unaware of the promise of His ‘parousia’ Coming that took place in 1963 but anticipate the glorified Man from Galilee to step down from the sky for which there is no basis in Scripture. Following earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions and the invasion and occupation of Israel and the United States prophesied to mark the close of the Gentile dispensation, the pope incarnate by Satan then cast down to earth, will unite the world’s religions, restore peace and be universally proclaimed inaugural president of one world government. With peace restored, the world church system will unite with the state in a revived Roman empire, ostensibly against Judaeo-Communist Russia, and under the covenant prophesied in Daniel 9:27, Revelation 13:11-13 and 17:11-14 between Rome and the international Jews of the ‘City of London,’ the US dollar will be refinanced with gold backing and her earthquake-devastated infrastructure and economy restored. And trying to do God a service without it being His will, the nominal churches will force Rome’s trinity dogma—the mark of the beast—on pain of death (Revelation 13:15-18), for “In the day of the earthquake [that cleaves the mount of Olives] the light shall neither clear, nor dark: but it will be a unique day known to the Lord, not day, nor night, but at evening time it shall be Light” (Zechariah 14:6-8).

In the early days of the Church, Christ made Himself known “and granted signs and wonders to be done by the hands of the apostles . . . [but at the Hegelian dialectic of the First Nicea Council in AD325] the synagogue of Satan” organized the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church. And from the end of the Roman Empire to the close of the Middle Ages the Dark Ages descended, sinking civilization in Western Europe. Few received schooling and knowledge from the Romans survived only in a few monasteries and elite institutions; arts and crafts were lost and superstition overruled understanding. Thereafter the Lord raised up the Reformation with its great teachers. Of Revelation 2:9 Brother Branham said, “The word, Jews, does not describe the religion of the Jewish people. It refers only to the people [residents] of Judah [Judeans] and has the same precise meaning if I were to say I am Irish born. These people were saying that they were actually Jews [Judahites], real Jews [“of the stock of Israel” (Philippians 3:5)] by birth. They were liars. They were not Jews by birth and they weren’t Jews by religion. If all this is true, what were they? They were a deceived people who were already part of the church. They belonged to the false vine” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 120). And “I believe the key to interpreting exactly what each of these wonderfully descriptive phrases means is found in Revelation 3:9. . . because it deals with the [self-styled or so-called] Jews who have always called themselves the children of God to the exclusion of everyone else. They crucified and killed the Lord Jesus Christ. Their terrible deed brought their blood upon their own heads for centuries. All because they refused Jesus as their Messiah, Which indeed He was” (ibid. p. 291:2).

Satan countered, instituting the Judaeo-Jesuits in 1534, followed by the “Age of Reason,” also called the “Enlightenment” or Illuminati, and the “Age of Rationalism,” which commenced in the 1600s and lasted until the late 1700s. Its Illuminist leaders included French philosophers—the Marquis de Concorcet, René Descartes, Denis Diderot, Jean Jacques Rousseau, and Voltaire, and English philosopher John Locke, who contrasted reason with ignorance, superstition, and the uncritical acceptance of authority, rightly blaming the Roman Catholic church in particular, for keeping men in ignorance in order to maintain its power. These men greatly influenced the leaders of the French and American Revolutions but God sent John Wesley, the angel to the Philadelphian Church Age (1750 – 1906), and the great Wesleyan revival kept the revolution away from Great Britain and saved her to be an instrument in the hand of God for many glorious years.

These philosophers were deists, convinced that the universe could be understood by the human mind, and that after God had finished the universe He left it strictly alone. Consequently they ruled out the possibility of miracles or other special acts by God. Signs, wonders and miracles were soon replaced by lectures and Gospel tracts; but the Church has passed through that era of intellectual half-Light that bound the Holy Spirit by denominationalism, and the evening Light has come to restore us back to the power of Pentecost for the manifestation of the Sons of God under the latter rain “Then the works that I do shall you do also” (John 14:12).

God is Alpha and Omega—the Word at the beginning and the Word at the end, but He is not the PART-Word that was in between, which was why the saints required a Mediator from Pentecost to the close of the Laodicean Church Age. Christ received the revelation of the Word for their day and excused their ignorance of that which was sealed, or lost through Roman Catholic pogrom and persecution, and baptized them into the Body.

Zechariah was referring to spiritual conditions at the end of the Laodicean Church Age when the people were “lukewarm and neither cold nor hot” concerning sanctified living and the strict Word and will of God, and under the delusion they ‘have all of God’ are in fact “wretched, and miserable, Spiritually bankrupt, blind to the faith, naked of the Blood, and know it not” (Revelation 3:16-20). Although Christ’s end-time Bride has received “Light in the evening time” but this condition pervades the whole world and the elect Israelites will not recognize their “evening time Light” until they enter the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week.

The same Light that shone in Jerusalem in the morning of the Gospel has been restored in the evening just before the Gentile dispensation ends and Tribulation darkness descends upon the Earth. Matthew 24:22-28, “The tribulation of the Gentile dispensation will be shortened for the elect by the restoring them to the apostolic faith and finishing the mystery of God to bring them into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and their translation without death” (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7; Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:47-56; I Thessalonians 4:14-18;). “At that time if any one tells you, Christ has arrived at such and such a place, or has appeared here or there, believe them not. For false anointed ones and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to mislead, if it were possible, even the elect. Remember I have forewarned you. So if they say to you, He is in the desert; do not go out: or in the inner room; do not believe it. For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even to the west; so shall also the UNIVERSAL ‘parousia’ Coming of the Son of man be. For wherever the carcase of the fresh food for the hour is, there the saints will be gathered together”.

From the perspective of the Church, Zechariah and Jesus were speaking of the former or ‘teaching rain’ of Brother Branham’s Message and ministry that revealed the Son of Man in the West with the same signs and wonders He displayed in the East (Luke 17:28-30). From the point of view of Israel, it will be the ministry and Message of the Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 with their teaching rain reconfirming the New Covenant (Isaiah 4:3-4; Jeremiah 31:31-34; Ezekiel 36:21-30; Daniel 9:24; Joel 2:23; 3:21). So you see in the end-time, the former rain is restored to we Gentiles, and then to the Israelites.

Zechariah 14:6-9, “And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Light shall not be clear, nor dark: but it shall be a unique day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be Light [of revelation]. In that day, living waters shall flow out from Jerusalem; half of them to the former sea (Gentile), and half of them to the hinder sea (Israel): in both summer and in winter. And the Lord will become King over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and His Name alone will be worshipped.” The evening-time Light of Christ’s parousia shining by the fullness of the Gospel first to Christ’s Gentile Bride, and then to 144,000 elect Israelites.

The evening Light to the Church is followed by “the day of the Lord, which is darkness, and not Light, even very Dark and no brightness in it” (Amos 5:18-20).

Christ-rejecting Gentiles have shut their ears to “sound doctrine.” Denominational ministers and many within the circle of this Message are unaware of the promise of His ‘parousia’ Coming that took place in 1963 but anticipate the glorified Man from Galilee to step down from the sky for which there is no basis in Scripture.

So you see in the end-time, the former rain is restored to we Gentiles, and then to the Israelites.

Zechariah 14:6-9, “And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Light shall not be clear, nor dark: but it shall be a unique day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be Light [of revelation].

The evening-time Light of Christ’s parousia shining by the fullness of the Gospel first to Christ’s Gentile Bride, and then to 144,000 elect Israelites.

The evening Light to the Church is followed by “the day of the Lord, which is darkness, and not Light, even very Dark and no brightness in it” (Amos 5:18-20).

We will comment briefly on Ezekiel 33-37 in order to lay a groundwork for the remainder of the Book where the prophecy of God’s mercy to Israel begins with a renewed call to conversion, and with repeated earnest accusation of Israel (Ezekiel 33; 34; 36), so that His promises are accompanied by the assurance of judgment on the hostile world powers, and their downfall (Ezekiel 35; 38; 39) in contrast and as transition to the glorification of the Lord Jesus in His kingdom. Certainly these chapters were intended to encourage the Captives in Babylon with hope for their return to Judea, however their ultimate thrust and our interest concerns the prophetic events on the immediate horizon following the resurrection and translation of the Church.

As with Jeremiah 26 and Zechariah 6, we see Ezekiel in chapters 2 and 3 given a scroll “written within and without with lamentations, mourning and woe.” The writing was almost certainly Israel’s Seven Trumpet Judgments, not that their mystery was revealed to him any more than it was disclosed to Daniel, and as Christ’s end-time Bride is made to eat the Book and become one with the revelation of the Seven Thunders, which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals (Revelation 10:8-11), Ezekiel as God’s watchman, is commanded to eat the Scroll and “Receive in your heart, and hear with your ears all My Words.” In other words, He is to receive the Light of a clear revelation before delivering his Message. God makes him mute until He opens his mouth to warn the wicked to repent, then again the Lord makes him “dumb, so that he should not be a reprover: for they are a rebellious house” like the Gentiles in Revelation 22:10-19.

Up until chapter 25 Ezekiel prophesied judgment upon Jerusalem, God’s Temple and the Judeans, but from chapter 25 to 32 he prophesies judgment upon Israel’s enemies, Ammon, Moab, Edom, the Philistines, Tyrus, Sidon, and Egypt as a transition to the prophecies of Mercy upon Israel in Daniel’s Seventieth Week. So you see, although seeing and declaring the revelation was “as sweet as honey,” it was a hard Message to deliver.

In chapter 33:1-7 his commission as watchman is renewed, and turning from foreign nations to Israel he is told (like the angels to the Seven Church Ages) “Speak to the children of your people, and say, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: if when he sees the sword come upon the land, he blows the trumpet, and warns the people; then whosoever hears the sound of the trumpet, and takes not warning; if the sword come, and takes him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him (John 15:22). But he that took warning shall deliver his soul. But if the watchman see the sword coming, and does not blow the trumpet and the people are not warned; if the sword comes, and takes anyone, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand”.

The Lord revealed the capture of Jerusalem to Ezekiel and opened his mouth to prophesy the night before a refugee arrived with the news so that the mocking Judeans would recognize him as a vindicated prophet. As in Zechariah 11, Ezekiel 34 prophesies against the foolish shepherds, the rulers and kings of Israel, and promises the Shepherd of Mercy, David’s Greater Son will make a New Covenant of peace with Israel and gather them out of the nations (by the ministry of the two witnesses of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11) that they may receive “showers of blessing” in the Messianic Kingdom.

Ezekiel 35 – 36:8 expands upon the coming judgment of Edom promised in Ezekiel 25:12-14 “by the hand of My people Israel.” This treacherous brood had assisted Nebuchadnezzar in the capture of Jerusalem (Obadiah 1:1-16; 2:11, 16-20) and afterward invaded and held possession of the south of Palestine as far as Hebron until conquered five years later by Nebuchadnezzar. But when the Judeans returned from the Captivity they found Benjamin’s allotment occupied by Edom, so Benjamin resettled in Galilee of the Gentiles. Esau married a Hittite and a Canaanite who along with their Edomite offspring were Serpent’s seed whom God set “at enmity” with Adam’s race (Genesis 3:15). Subsequently he married an Ishmaelite and although their children were of Adam’s race they possibly bore some resentment because their forefather did not share with Isaac in the blessing and inheritance of Abraham.

Esau swore that on the death of his father Isaac he would kill Jacob, recover his birthright and steal his blessing (Genesis 27:39-41). He is working toward Jacob’s extermination to this day, which is one explanation for the genocide determined on the Palestinians and Muslim lands of the ancient Assyrian empire where the descendants of Israel and Judah abide (Ezekiel 35:10-15). Edom is the type of Israel’s last foe (Isaiah 63:1-4). In 130BC, John Hyrcanus, Judah’s high priest executed the divine vengeance when he defeated and forcibly assimilated the Edomites who “were hereafter no other than Jews” (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, XIII, 9:1. An editor’s footnote on this page quotes the ancient historian, Ammonius, “The Idumeans were. . . subdued by the Jews [i.e. Judahites] and compelled to be circumcised, and to unite into one nation, and be subject to the same laws, they were called Jews”). Despite the subterfuge of names like “Jew” and “Israeli,” these impostors are Serpent’s seed as are Khazars, and ‘cherem‘ or dedicated to destruction for the glory of the Lord. Ezekiel 36:8-38 speaks of the glorification of the Lord God in the eyes of the heathen when He gathers Israel into the land of the Covenant and into the New Covenant by sanctification and new birth in Daniel’s Seventieth Week.

Ezekiel 37 foretells the gathering of the whole house of Israel “cut off from our parts” (7-14) during Daniel’s Seventieth Week under the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet as prophesied by our Lord Jesus in Matthew 24:31 and Revelation 7:1-8 and Paul in Romans 11:15 (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 27:13; 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.), and concludes with the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel under the millennial reign of Jesus Christ. The separation of Israel from the land of the Covenant is the most serious punishment that could be inflicted, for an Israelite outside the land is outside the Covenant and is as one dead. Thus the return of “the whole house of Israel” to the land will constitute the resurrection of the nation. This ‘resurrection’ and return of the twelve tribes or people of Israel, not the modern non-Semitic Jewish state, will follow an earthquake as the resurrection of our Lord Jesus and the Old Testament saints was called by an earthquake (Matthew 27:50-53; Ezekiel 37:7; 38:19-23). It will call the resurrection of the sleeping Church Age saints (Revelation 6:12; 11:14-19; 16:18-19; Zechariah 14:4-5).

After the siege of Jerusalem, this earthquake by which the Lord slays Israel’s foes, and specifically the enemies of the Israelites, will bring glory to the Lord and instill hope in the hearts of the twelve tribes living in exile (“for fear of the Jews”) encouraging them to return for their redemption in the land of the Covenant. nl626.htm

The Pope is the First among the Patriarchs

Metropolitan of Pergamon Joannis Zizioulac with Benedict XVI in the basilica of Saint Paul's Outside the Walls Rome, January 25, 2010 — Relations with the Orthodox Churches have never been so promising as they have since Joseph Ratzinger has been pope. . . The document of Ravenna, approved unanimously by both sides, affirms that “primacy and conciliarity are mutually interdependent.” And in paragraph 41, it highlights the points of agreement and disagreement:

“Both sides agree that . . . Rome, as the Church that ‘presides in love’ according to the phrase of St. Ignatius of Antioch, occupied the first place in the taxis (structure of the universal Church), and that the bishop of Rome was therefore the protos (or first) among the patriarchs. They disagree, however, on the interpretation of the historical evidence from this era regarding the prerogatives of the bishop of Rome as protos, a matter that was already understood in different ways in the first millennium”. . . Full story: chiesa.espresso.repubblica.it

Comment: The basis of the discussion is a text that was drafted on the island of Crete at the beginning of autumn in 2008. The Role of the Bishop of Rome in the Communion of the Church in the First Millennium, which is unscriptural and unhistorical iniquity grasping for terrestrial power. “By way of deception thou shalt do war,” like your “elder brother”.

According to Clause 4 of this document, the Hebrew witnesses of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 were Peter and Paul. Infallible Papal authority claims both men were martyred in Rome, contradicting Jesus Christ who prophesied they will be martyred in Jerusalem by the Catholic church after the close of the Gentile dispensation and visibly ascend into heaven after three and a half days, while Peter’s grave may be visited today.


Restoring One Universal [False] Church

Masonic Orthodox PatriarchMarch 4, 2010 — The “Cretan Unia,” signed by the “ecumenical” Patriarchate of Constantinople, whose higher clergy have long used the US and an association with Freemasonry, have brought the Moscow Patriarchate (MP) and its new patriarch in common prayer and increasingly energetic efforts for rapprochement with the Catholics who participated in dedicating the Russian Union Theological Seminary of the Russian Orthodox Church in Paris.

The political power of the Russian Federation encouraged this in order to achieve acceptance by the “global elite.” Such a rapprochement between the hierarchy of the Moscow Patriarchate and the Vatican is a consequence of refusing to truly evaluate Globalization, New World Order, that is advancing the kingdom of the Antichrist. After the Vatican commission for dialogue with Judaism, agreed that Jews remain God’s chosen people after they rejected Christ, and do not need baptism to be saved, and that Catholics are waiting with them for the same Messiah . . . by not adopting a similar union of science, Orthodox churches and the Orthodox doctrine of Antichrist will be considered “extremism” and “will be legally prosecuted.” Already, the prosecution charges are known, its expertise, and even court decisions . . . [Revelation 13:15-18].

The Russian Orthodox Church MP will accept this in a spirit of union, and try to present it to the faithful in a beautiful package, claiming “global recognition of the increasing role of the Orthodox Faith,” and the need for “a common Christian front of resistance against the present ungodly tendencies, and even evil “Muslim extremism.” Papal propagandists will express his defensive-patriotic oratory more clearly. . .

Some of Lenin's useful idiotsMarch 5, 2010 — This montage by Jewish musician and writer Gilad Atzmon illustrates the cowardly treachery of the world’s political leaders, confirming Revelation 16:13-16, “I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon [Satan], and out of the mouth of the beast [the Roman Catholic church], and out of the mouth of the false prophet [the pope]. For they are the spirits of demons, working miracles, which go forth to the leaders 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 he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” And:

Zechariah 14:2, “For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and of half the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city”.

The Judaeo-Catholic church is uniting the world church system for the second crucifixion. Their Black Nobility have our so-called elite “useful idiots” dressed in funny hats; their banksters of ‘the City of London’ will covenant with Rome (Daniel 9:27) to refinance the US dollar with real gold backing (in opposition to the allocation of carbon credits as currency), not the gold-plated tungsten substituted for bullion. (Could this explain why Rothschild sold Mocatta)? Once Rome has established economic and monetary hegemony she will break her covenant and these self-styled Jews will side with Judao-Communist Russia, presently sidelined, as their vehicle of vengeance. For Russia is God’s servant to destroy the false church as Nebuchadnezzar was His servant to punish Judea.

Were you aware of this cabbala? The Israeli-owned MOving SyS tems IncorporAteD operated by Israeli spies involved in the 9/11 scam contains the word MOSSAD. Now do you remember Mossad “warning” about 200 “Al-Qaeda terrorists” said to have been preparing major attacks in the US? At the time of this writing, we are one year into the largest investigation in American history, and not one of these 200 “terrorists” has been discovered. But 200 Israeli spies were discovered, among them Israeli military: electronics experts, wiretapping and phone tapping specialists, and explosives experts with the skill to bring down tall buildings. Logic and common sense leads to the conclusion that the “200 Al Qaeda terrorists” were in reality, 200 Zionist terrorists sent to frame the Arabs for terrorist attacks and drag America into a war. . .

One Prime Example of Controlled-Media

CIA-funded Jundullah terroristMarch 1, 2010 — You know how much the media demonizes Iran, right? Well, with that in mind, why didn’t they make a big stink about the Iranians forcing down a plane so they could haul off some guy? Maybe it was a story they didn’t want Americans to hear? If this had happened with anyone else, the US media would definitely be shouting it out on the airwaves—and you think our media is free? What a joke. They work for the same people behind all this mess going down.

The Iranian guy was named Abdolmalek Rigi and was on board a plane traveling over Iranian airspace from United Arab Emirates to Kyrgyzstan, when security forces made his plane land (I don’t know if it was intercepted by fighters or not). Riga confessed to being the ringleader of the Jundullah “terrorist” group. He also admitted some other interesting things, like America offering him unlimited military aid, money and a secret base in Afghanistan, just across the border so he could conduct operations inside Iran.

Basically, the CIA was caught offering to fund a terrorist. A terrorist working for us, against a sovereign government. You might even call this guy a “homegrown terrorist” being recruited by the US. And the pro-Zionist media in the US has the nerve to accuse Iran of funding anti-Israel groups like Hezbollah and Hamas? Just think how hypocritical this all is. Read on to find out who the guy was supposed to meet at his destination. [A Khazar Jew from Russia, US Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Richard Holbrooke].

Comment: According to former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, senior Israeli military officers, US Ambassador to Israel Daniel Kurtzer, US intelligence and former State Department officials, “beginning in the late 1970s, Tel Aviv gave direct and indirect financial aid and training to Hamas over a period of years” and the FBI sent Hamas money.

“The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaeda. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive the TV watcher to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US . . .” (Former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook). Yid Irony has Goys chasing the “Toilet“.


Japanese have Washington Post running scared over 9/11

March 8, 2010 — The issue as framed by the US ruling elite’s hometown house organ is very simple; a top insider in Japan’s new government has lost his marbles. The Washington Post’s apoplexy over the fact that Councilor Yukihisa Fujita isn’t buying the official version of what happened on September 11, 2001, is well reflected in the two headlines it gave to its March 8, 2010 editorial. First we have the print edition:

Poisonous Thinking in Japan

Has a conspiratorial view of 9/11 taken hold in the ruling party?

Then we have the even more hysterical headline in the electronic version:

A Leading Japanese Politician Espouses a 9/11 Fantasy

The two paragraphs below capture the flavor of The Post’s screed. I have provided some educational assistance for the reader by supplying useful links. Only the last of the six links was in The Post’s original online version.

Fujita’s ideas about the attack on the World Trade Center, which he shared with us in a recent interview, are too bizarre, half-baked and intellectually bogus to merit serious discussion. He questions whether it was really the work of terrorists; suggests that shadowy forces with advance knowledge of the plot played the stock market to profit from it; peddles the fantastic idea that eight of the 19 hijackers are alive and well; and hints that controlled demolition rather than fire or debris may be a more likely explanation for at least the collapse of the building at 7 World Trade Center, which was adjacent to the twin towers.

As with almost any calamity whose scale and scope assume historic proportions, the events of Sept. 11 have spawned a thriving subculture of conspiracy theorists at home and abroad. The only thing novel about Mr. Fujita is that a man so susceptible to the imaginings of the lunatic fringe happens to occupy a notable position in the governing apparatus of a nation that boasts the world’s second-largest economy.

Fujita, who as a graduate of Keio University is about as plugged in to Japan’s ruling “old boy” network as it is possible to be, has abandoned the 9/11 sinking ship was not previously even mentioned in The Post or anywhere else in the mainstream US press, to my knowledge.

Now The Post tells us that they have interviewed him. . . I’m not holding my breath waiting for The Post to print that interview, no matter how much we might clamor for it. . . Full story: dcdave.com

The giveaway as to how frantic The Post is over this matter is that they are editorializing before reporting. That


Bring All the Tithes into the Storehouse

By Pastor Chibuze Uzoho

Today, some good folk believe tithing is not as important as it was in the Old Testament Temple system of worship. Others suggest that the freewill contributions of the saints have taken the place of tithing in the Church. However, basic Biblical principles like this do not change. Tithing existed before the Old Testament ‘Levitical’ order was established and it continues to exist.

The tithe is a tenth. We first learn about “tithing” when Abraham met Melchizedek (Genesis 14:1-20), Priest-King of Salem, which means “peace” or “security.” Earthly Salem was initially ruled by Amorites, but the Jebusites who ruled in the era of Joshua called it “Jebusi,” and when both names were conjoined it became “Jerusalem,” or “city of peace” (Joshua 18:28; Ezekiel 16:3). When Abram first encountered Melchizedek, the “King of Righteousness,” Creator and Redeemer of heaven and earth He was the theophany that would later manifest as the virgin-born Prince of Peace. And as the Father of the Son of God, His city was not earthly Salem established by the Serpent’s seed, but the “heavenly Jerusalem that is free of the yoke of Mosaic Law and is the mother of us all” and will one day “come down from God out of heaven as a Bride adorned for her Husband” (Galatians 4:6; Hebrews 12:22; Genesis 10:15-19: Hebrews 7:2; Revelation 21:1-2).

This is the first mention of the word “Priest” in Scripture. A Priest is an intercessor between God and men; as God’s representatives His ministers received God’s tithe for their sustenance under grace as they did under the Law (Numbers 18:24). Consequently when Abraham met Melchizedek he was not learning how to give tithes, as this was his custom. Abraham and Jacob like we Gentiles today lived under grace which predated the Law of Moses and the Temple worship, (Genesis 14:20; 28:20-22); both understood the principle of paying tithes which is obligatory to every believer. Leviticus 27:30 states, “All the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord’s. It is holy to the Lord”.

As exemplified by the Patriarchs of old, the Christian’s life is one of stewardship. Jacob promised a tenth to the Lord. “And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the Lord be my God: And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God’s house: and of all that You give me I will surely give the tenth to You” (Genesis 28:20-22, 30). Hence tithe paying is a principle of stewardship, not a ritual fulfilled on Calvary.

Malachi wrote the last Book of the Old Testament, announcing the first Coming of the messenger of the New Testament and His forerunner, John. Malachi 3:8-12, is often regarded as Old Testament Scripture whereas it is actually a prophecy of the Lord’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel as “the God of judgment” after the close of the Gentile dispensation, and emphasizes the importance of tithing among God’s people.

“Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, How have we robbed You? In tithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse, for you are robbing Me, the whole nation of you. Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in My house, and thereby put Me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you, and pour out for you an overflowing blessing. I will rebuke the devouring locust for your sakes, and it shall not destroy the fruits of your soil; your vine in the field shall not fail to ripen, says the Lord of hosts. Then all nations shall call you blessed: for you shall be a delightful land, says the Lord of hosts” (Malachi 3:8-12).

tithing the widow's miteIn this Scripture we see the entire nation of Judah had defrauded God in tithes and heave offerings which belonged to Him and would have been utterly consumed as they deserved were it not for His longsuffering patience for the sake of His elect. This lukewarm spirit has now engulfed the entire world as we approach the end of grace. The spirit of Laodicea is hindering the revelation of Jesus Christ and the expression of the Token of His Life in many in the circle of this end-time Message; God’s wrath is restrained only by His longsuffering patience waiting for the last elect to recognize his day and its Message. Once the last soul is baptized into Christ, God’s wrath will fall on the earth. We stand at the threshold of the crisis of the ages.

God reproved the Israelites and also promised to bless them abundantly if they would bring the tithes into His storehouse. In fact He declared he would open the windows of heaven and pour an abundant blessings upon them. And God is poised to open the windows of heaven and pour out a more than sufficient blessing upon you who will take Him at His Word for, “there is great reward in keeping your Word” (Psalm 19:11). God wants to show Christians tremendous revelations that will enlighten both wise and foolish virgin, Spiritual and material blessings are withheld from unbelievers and doubters who rob Him of His tenth (tithe), impoverishing His labourers as in the days of Nehemiah. “I discovered that the portions of the Levites had not been given to them: so that they and the singers, who did the work, had fled each to his field”  (Nehemiah 13:10).

God owns everything “and the cattle upon a thousand hills” (Psalm 50:10, 24:1). He allows us the joy of giving and personally using His possessions for His glory. However, He requires His people to dedicate a good portion, a tithe, for His service. “And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord’s: it is holy to the Lord” (Leviticus 27:30-32). Tithes belong to God and were portions He exclusively reserved to the Priests and Levites; those who minister in the Temple. The tithes of Israel were offered as a heave offering and given to the Levites. The “heave offering” was lifted upward once, properly separated from the larger mass and devoted to the divine service of God.

“As for the descendants of Levi, I have given them every tithe in Israel for an inheritance, in return for their services as custodians of the tabernacle of the congregation. (Numbers 18:21-24).

Levites were to pay a tenth, a tithe of a tithe. “Speak unto the Levites and direct them, When you take the tithes from the children of Israel which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then you shall present a heave offering of it for the Lord, a tithe of the tithe. Your heave offering shall be credited to you as though it were the grain from the threshing floor, and as the full produce of the winepress. Thus from all your tithes which you receive of the people of Israel, you are to contribute a heave offering to the Lord, and give the Lord’s heave offering to Aaron the priest. Out of all your gifts you are to select from every heave offering for the Lord the best thereof, the hallowed portion of it. Tell them also, When you offer the best part of it, it shall be credited to the Levites as the increase of the threshing floor, and as the increase of the winepress. And you may eat it in any place, you and your households: for it is your reward in return for your service in the tabernacle. You will not bring any sin upon yourselves, provided you contribute the best of it. You are not to desecrate the holy gifts of the Israelites lest you die” (Numbers 18:26-32).

The Levites were God’s ministers and they too must pay one tenth (ten percent) of the heave offering that was offered by the children of Israel. The rest was for their own use, because it was the reward for their service in the tabernacle of the congregation. This shows that Ministers of the Gospel are to pay tithes, and the giver and the receiver are of the same fivefold ministry, the blessing comes from God for both ministers, as they give their services to God. Non-paying of tithes is a grievous sin tantamount to despoiling God (Hebrews 10:26-27). In trying to defraud God we only defraud ourselves. As the eagle which robbed the altar would set her nest on fire from the burning coal that adhered to the stolen flesh, Christians who retain God’s tithe in their treasuries will surely find it a losing possession. No one loses by serving God with a completely surrendered heart, nor ever gains by serving Him half heartedly, as seen by numerous examples in Scripture. We may compromise with conscience for half the price, but God will not endorse the compromise; and, like Ananias and Sapphira, we shall lose not only what we thought we had purchased so cheaply, but also the price we paid for it. If we would have God open His treasury, we first must open ours. If we want to preserve our possessions we must be faithful stewards in tithing. One cause of loss and barrenness in the Church is the unwillingness of members to pay their tithes and give freewill offerings with a cheerful heart. When Christians refuse to render to the Lord according to the benefits they have received they fall short of the mark of His high calling.

“Windows of heaven” is an expression that speaks of rain for the crops, especially the early and latter rains to bless the field. It indicates much increase to be poured out in the allusion of a vessel completely emptied of its contents, no blessing being kept back as the result of obedience in tithes and offerings. Jesus said, “Give and it shall be given to you, good measure pressed down, and shaken together, and running over.” God promises security and protection to the obedient servant. He says, “I will rebuke the devouring locust. I will no longer corrupt the seed, but will rebuke every agency that could hurt it.” These magnificent promises speak of the Christian’s sources of income and property. In obedience His people are seen as a delightsome blessing in His presence (Deuteronomy 33:29, Zechariah 8:13; Malachi 3:11).

God has opened the windows of heaven to the Church and abundantly poured out His blessings in these last days. Therefore, He reasonably expects us to bring our tithes into His storehouse for His service, but if we have refused and have not planned accordingly to promote the cause of Christ, the Spirit is grieved, and the blessing is withdrawn. Why? Because, we have failed to be liberal when God had dealt so bountifully with us in blessing (Amos 4:9).

When Christians are not consciously dependent on the Spirit but rely on their own resources, God curses their blessings. In many instances, they sin against their own mercies, because they become lifted up with their success, taking credit to themselves and not giving all the glory to God. “If you will not hear, and if you will not lay it to heart to give glory to My Name, says the Lord of hosts, then I will even send the curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: indeed I have cursed them already, because you do not lay it to heart” (Malachi 2:2).

Jesus admonishes us, “Give, and it shall be given to you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that you mete withal it shall be measured to you again. God loves a cheerful giver.” (Luke 6:38, II Corinthians 9:7b). Don’t you know, “the liberal souls shall be fat and he that waters shall be watered also himself”  (Proverbs 11:25)?

Bring all the tithes into the storehouseMalachi 3:10 speaks of bringing all the tithes into his store house. Therefore for a true relationship with the One who provides all things, only a complete tithe is appropriate, which is a tenth of one’s increase. To understand the Storehouse as implied, the following Scriptures offer some clue. II Chronicles 31:11-15, “Then Hezekiah commanded to prepare chambers in the house of the Lord; and they prepared them, and brought in the offerings and the tithes and the dedicated things faithfully” (I Chronicles 26:20; Nehemiah 10:38; 13:5, Deuteronomy 12:5-6, 11).

In the Temple the storehouse was the area where grains and produce were stored for use by the Priest and Levites—those whose work it was to minister before the Lord. In the New Testament, this store House is the Church where we receive the spiritual food in due season and the Ministers are the fivefold Ministry. As the Levites lived upon the tithes of their congregation, the fivefold Ministry live upon the tithes of their congregations. And as freewill offerings furnished the needs of the Old Testament temple, our freewill offerings meet Church expenses for maintenance, repairs, electricity, stationary, office staff and so forth. Tithes are not for constructing church buildings or feeding the poor. Congregational freewill offerings serve these ends (Exodus 25:2-8).

In Malachi 3:10, God says “prove me,” showing that He wants His people to test Him whether He will keep His promise of blessing them for their loving obedience (II Chronicles 31:10). God’s case against non-payment of tithes and offerings is based on robbery, which is a breach of the eighth commandment (Exodus 20:15). Withholding God’s property is perhaps the most obvious symptom of indiffence to God, though we may feign ignorance. “But you shall remember the Lord your God: for it is He who enables you to prosper that He may establish the covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. . . Honour the Lord with your substance, and with the first fruits of all your increase: So shall your barns be filled with plenty, and your vats overflow with new wine” (Deuteronomy 8:18; Proverbs 3:9-10).

As mentioned earlier, some good folk believe that returning a tenth to God was a commandment only to those of the Old Testament. This attitude is indicative of the fact that they are not yet born-again because of their inability to rightly divide and measure the Word against appropriate shadows and types rather than adding here and taking-away there to justify themselves (Revelation 22:18-19).

In the time of Jesus’ first advent, the Jewish leaders were intent on bringing all the people to perfection . . . according to their man-made paradigms. They figured that God would be obligated to help them conquer the Romans on account of their zeal for self-works. They made extra rules, which told people how to keep these laws, whereby they made the Word and faith of no effect. Back then neglecting tithe was not an issue. Here is Jesus’ comment: “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, for you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the Law: judgment, mercy, and faith you ought to have done, and not to leave tithing undone” (Matthew 23:23, Luke 11:42).

Jesus’ statement clarifies that tithe paying is still a requirement, but while honouring their obligation to tithe the Jewish leaders of His day were seriously remiss in neglecting the compassionate elements of the Law. Therefore, Christians are duty bound to tithe a minimum ten percent of their increase to their pastor who feeds them Spiritual food in due season.

Some zealots argue that Jesus’ statement regarding tithes pertained only to the Priests. This has no Scriptural support since had the people not tithed the priests would have been exempt from their obligation to tithe a tenth of their increase. The congregation paid tithes to the priests. The Jewish leaders tended to demand observances of the people that they themselves ignored, “for you lade men with burdens grievous to be borne and you yourselves touch not the burdens” (Luke 11:46).

At the Cross, the ceremonial laws which pointed forward to the Lamb of Calvary ended (John 1:29; Matthew 5:17; 27:51), but tithing did not point to the Cross and was not fulfilled on the Cross. Therefore tithe-paying remains an obligation today as do freewill contributions and gifts. More so, the spiritual leaders of Church are worthy of support today. “Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour especially those that labour in the word and doctrine. For the Scripture says, You shall not muzzle the ox that treads out the corn. And the labourer is worthy of his reward” (I Timothy 5:17-8).

“Do we have no right to eat and drink? . . . Whoever goes to war at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its fruit? Or who tends a flock and does not drink of the milk of the flock? Do I say these things as a mere man? Does the Law not say the same also? For it is written in the Law of Moses, You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain. Is it oxen God is concerned about? Or does He say it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written, that he who plows should plow in hope, and he who threshes in hope should be partaker of his hope. Inasmuch as we have sown Spiritual seed among you, is it remarkable for us if we reap your material things? Since others enjoy the right to share material benefits from you, do not we even more? Nevertheless we have not used this right, but endure all things lest we hinder the Gospel of Christ. Do you not know that those who minister the holy things eat of the things of the temple, and those who serve at the altar partake of the offerings of the altar? Even so the Lord has commanded that those who preach the Gospel should live from the Gospel” (I Corinthians 9:4, 7-14).

In verse 7 of the above Scripture, Saint Paul asks, “Who serves as a soldier at his own expense?” With the expression “muzzle an ox” Brother Paul is still referring to the Temple Law of tithes. For as the Ox that treads out the grain is worthy to eat of the grain so the Minister of the Gospel ought to live from the tithing of the Church (Deuteronomy 25:4). Paul teaches that in the sanctuary, priests and Levites were supported by the people and alludes to the New Testament fivefold Ministry who labour daily in the Word. He points out that Christians need to remember to be faithful in tithes and contributions (Malachi 3:10; II Corinthians 8:4; I Corinthian 9:4).

The majority of believers are wary of sacrificing too much for God, but He abundantly blesses in ways beyond money all who obey this commandment. Holding back tithes for any reason is not an option. It is a joy to partner with the Lord. Our first obligation is to pay our tithes; bring the tithes and offerings into the storehouse of God where we get spiritual food. Second, we must meet our family responsibilities, settle any lingering debts, and responsibly steward any surplus.

Since Messiah has “magnified the Law and made it glorious” our motivation in serving God is enlarged beyond what ever it was under the Old Testament, such that Christians should go beyond the Old Testament people in consecrating both themselves and their substance to God (Isaiah 42:21). God delights in a cheerful giver and those who worship Him in Spirit and in Truth, becoming written epistles of the Present-Truth.

You are to pay your tithe to your Pastor, however, if you are without a pastor, you should support the minister who feeds your soul with Spiritual food in due season (I Corinthians: 9:1-14; 16:1-2; I Timothy 5:17-18). The tithe is not church property, it belongs to the Pastor to live on and spend as he pleases. If it insufficient for his needs he will have to work. He will in turn pay his own tithe to Ministers who feed him. This is the tithe of tithes as in the Old Testament where the Levite was obligated to pay a tenth to the Priest (Nehemiah 10:38; Numbers 18:28-32).

Church expenses should not be met out of the Pastor’s pocket but from the free- will offerings of the saints. Tithes and freewill contributions should not be conflated as they are two separate obligations of the believer (Exodus 25:2; 8 Deuteronomy 16:16-17). The obligation on these two still exists in the Church. The assembly does not belong to the Pastor. It belongs to the entire congregation. It is your assembly and the Pastor is your servant, not your benefactor. He should be reimbursed by the church for his telephone, traveling, postage and other expenses incurred in the “business” of the assembly.

How do we calculate our tithe? It is calculated on our “increase” (Deuteronomy 14:22). For a businessman, it is the tenth of his net profit or increase after deducting the overhead costs, tax and other expenses. For a wage or salary earner this should be ten percent of the total income calculated after tax has been deducted.

Contrary to denominational doctrine, Ministers of God do not receive a salary or stipend from the Church, but according to Scripture they derive their living from the tithes of God’s people. Bazaars, fetes, and suppers are not God’s ways of supporting the Ministry. God said, “Bring the full tithes into the storehouse.” The man who loves God will always take pleasure in supporting God’s work. You like to help those you dearly love, and when you help the Church, you are helping God. Jesus said, “inasmuch as you have done it unto the least of these My Brethren, you have done it unto Me,” and the minister being your servant is the least (Matthew 23:11; 25:40). So, brethren, do not withhold any part of your tithes thereby making your Pastor wait for his due as though he were a beggar. Do not defraud God. Pay the full sum of your tithes. Your Pastor has obligations and expenses to meet and having dispensed his duties he is therefore worthy to receive his entitlements. If your Minister has faithfully sown Spiritual things for you, is it remarkable that he reaps your material things? You should pay your tithes as soon as you receive your increase. Hello! My Pastor friends, the tithe is your right from God, it is not charity, so don’t be bashful.

Malachi 3:8-12 is a Scripture frequently quoted by those who support tithing and also by those who do not believe in tithing, claiming this is Old Testament Scripture and does not apply to the Church today. However it needs to be said that there are more Scriptures in the Old Testament yet to be fulfilled than there are in the New, and Malachi 3:2-4:6 speak of New Testament times yet future. Tithing is not simply an Old Testament commandment; it applies in the New Testament dispensation.

Jesus taught us that the commandment to tithe will continue throughout eternity. In the new heaven and new earth, “The nations of the saved shall walk in the Light of the Shekinah over New Jerusalem: and the kings of the earth shall bring their glory and honour [or tithe] into it. Its gates shall never be shut by day: and there shall be no night there. And they shall bring the glory and honour [or tithe] of the nations into it. But nothing unclean [unregenerate], nor anyone who commits abomination, or practices falsehood: but the born-again saints whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life shall enter therein” (Revelation 21:24-27). So tithing is most definitely a New Testament requirement. If we neglect to pay our tithes and freewill offerings we are robbing God of His due and as well robbing ourselves of His blessings, and indicate we are not in the Bride.

If God is not opening the windows of heaven to you, rise up now brother and sister and discover the cause of your Spiritual or material dearth before the Gentile dispensation ends. We must endeavor to meet the requirements of God’s unchanging Word in order to come into the unity of faith with the Token on display at all times. Now is checking-up time to discover our short comings and amend our lives and prove whether we are living in the promises of God.

In this end-time God has sent us a Prophet, William Branham who was the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6, to reveal Gods entire plan in such simplicity even the fool should not err. Since Christ’s mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Word ended with the revelation of the Seven Seals: He is no longer winking at men’s ignorance but requires us to “live by His every Word”.

This is what our ‘Elijah’ taught on the matter of tithing: “Hebrews 7:7-9, “Without any contradiction the less is blessed of the better. (Certainly. Watch Who He is). And here men that die receive tithes;. . . (That’s the priesthood of the order of priests and preachers and so forth, men that receive tithe, die. See?). . . but here He receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that He liveth.”

“What would a man take tithings for, if he never was borned, and never will die, and was from beginning to end, and never had no father or mother or descent, and owned the whole heavens and earth and all in it, why would He take tithe? Why would he ask Abraham to pay tithes? You see what a strict thing it is to pay tithes? Tithing’s right. Every Christian’s duty bound to pay tithe. That’s right. Never has been changed” (William Branham, Hebrews, p. 310:122-123).

“Thank you, my little sister, for this tithing. As a minister, I’m supposed to receive tithing” (From that Time, #60-07160).

Question: “Brother Branham, don’t you feel that everyone who claims to be a Christian should pay tithes; pay their tithes into the storehouse of the Lord? Please give Scripture to this question.

All right, if you will. . . That is right, that the Bible said in Malachi the 3rd chapter, “Will a man rob God? And you say, ‘Where have we robbed Thee?’ In tithe and offerings. Bring all your tithe and offerings into My storehouse and prove Me,” saith the Lord, “if I will not open up the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing that there’ll not be room enough to receive.”

That’s a challenge to any individual. And if I only had the time, and would not get to this little Scripture that I wish to get to in about the next ten minutes, I would like to give you a personal testimony of how that I was even hungry, and my mother and them hungry, and my daddy sick, but I took my tithes out first and give it to God, and you ought to see what happened. I have never seen in my life, that any man or a woman, that if you only make one dollar a week, will bring the ten cents of that money and put it into your storehouse, your church where you come, if God don’t bless that, call me a hypocrite. Yes, sir. That’s a challenge to anybody. And every Christian. . . That goes to this other question. Every Christian should pay tithes. That’s right. It should be done” (C.O.D., p. 617:Q436).

Question: Does a Christian not get to heaven because they do not pay tithe?

“I could not say yes or no to that. But I do believe that every Christian is obligated to pay tithings because it is a commandment of the Lord. “And blessed are they that do all His commandments, that they might have a right to enter into the Life, the Tree of Life.” Now, I do believe that tithe-paying is essential to a Christian experience” (C.O.D., p. 604:Q136; Revelation 22:14).

Question: Would it be wrong to use tithes on church building funds?

“Well now, here’s a touchy little thing for the church now. No, correctly, tithes is to go to the minister. That’s right. In the Bible they had a box they’d set at the door in the Old Testament. This box was a fund where the people put in there for the repairing. . . You’ve read it many times in the Old Testament. They kept up the buildings and things like that. . . All the repairs on the buildings was taken care out of that fund. But all the tithings went to their priests, their pastors. Yes, tithings are to go for nothing else.”

“I know people take their tithes and give them to a widow woman. That’s wrong. If you’ve got anything to give the widow woman, give her, but don’t give her God’s money. That’s not yours in the first place. That’s God’s.

“If you sent me downtown to get a loaf of bread, and you give me twenty-five cents to get the loaf of bread, and I met somebody on the street wanted something else, and I’d give him the twenty-five cents (See?), I give them your money. If they asked me for something, let them get it over here in this pocket and give them my money; but this is your money. And a tenth of it is the Lord’s. And Levi the priest could live by the tenth.”

“The tenth is to be a tithing that’s to be brought into the storehouse with a promise of God to bless it and a proof. He said, “If you don’t believe it, come and prove Me and see if I won’t do it.” See? That’s right.” “The tithing goes into the church for the pastor and so forth like that to live on. And then the building funds and things like that is a separate fund altogether. Now, that is Scriptural. One time when we get started, I want to take a night. . . I’ve went here some time ago before I left the tabernacle and taken about two or three weeks and just on subjects like that and went plumb through it and showed what tithings was in the church”  (C.O.D., p. 680:Q161).

In Branham Tabernacle there was “a little box on the back where they put their tithes in”  (Jehovah Jireh, #56-1209E).

Question: Should a person pay tithes to an individual, or should a Christian work?

“Sure he should. He’s the one man that will work, is a Christian. “Pay tithes to an individual?” It depends on who the individual is. See? That’s right. In Hebrews the 7th chapter, when Abraham, returning from the slaughter of the kings met Melchisedec, he paid Him a tithe. That was Melchisedec, the King of Salem, which is King of Peace, and King of Righteousness, which was nobody but God Himself. See?”

“But when you pay tithings. . . Really, where you owe tithings is where you get your food. “Bring ye all your tithings into My storehouse, saith the Lord. (That right?) And prove Me herewith saith God, that if I’ll not open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing that you would not have room enough to receive it.” I challenge any man or woman that’s not a tithe payer to accept that.”

“I could stand here till in the morning, telling you just what happened when I seen that, and what condition I was in. But just as loyal as I ever could, I paid tithes. And when I took my own money from the church here or from my campaigns, I’d take more. . . I’d give a tenth. Then I’d give it out to the ministers, and give the rest of it to ministers. Then when I couldn’t do that, then the thing I did, I kept ten percent and give God ninety. And then, when the law told me I couldn’t do that, I’d have to take. . . And if I did, it was going to be charged to it, then I had to take and bypass it into foreign missions and so forth, and then just take a wage out of that of a hundred dollars a week; and I pay my tithes from that.”

“Yes, sir. I believe in paying tithes. It’s one of God’s blessings that’s proven to be a blessing. You say, “That’s of the Old Testament.” It is of the New Testament too. Yes, sir” (C.O.D., p. 1034: Q307).

When Brother Branham was in court over the income tax matter his attorney asked: “How do you get your money?”

I said, “What people send me.” I’m looking in the face of people right now that sends me tithing continually. I never ask them, they just do it. That’s the Holy Spirit. He’s able to take care of His own” (The Baptism of the Holy Spirit, p. 17:74).

Henceforth the children of Israel are never to come near the sanctuary, lest they bear sin, and die. The Levites shall discharge the service of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they shall bear their iniquity: it shall be a perpetual statute for ever throughout your generations, that among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance. For I have designated the tithes which the children of Israel present as a heave offering to the Lord, for an inheritance to the Levites: therefore I have told them, that they are not to own any property among the children of Israel: they shall have no inheritance”

In Summary, these are Twelve Reasons for Tithing:

1. Tithing is Scriptural—ordered and approved of God in the Old and New Testaments.

2. Tithing teaches the true worshippers of the Lord Jesus Christ to put God and His work first.

3. Tithing teaches us to recognize and acknowledge God’s ownership of our lives.

4. Tithing is an act of worship.

5. Tithing gives us more confidence in our prayers to God.

6. Tithing invokes God’s blessings upon the tithe-giver.

7. Tithing tends to increase the tithe-giver’s ability to give more than just a tenth of his or her income.

8. Tithing allows tithe-givers an opportunity to receive from God His blessings as they give Him their tithes.

9. Tithing creates a commanding position of stewardship in the lives of Christians.

10. Tithing increases the tithe-giver’s influence over others to follow his example to practice tithing.

11. Tithing is giving in a systematic manner rather than an emotional or spasmodic giving.

12.Tithing causes the tithe-giver to give freely and spontaneously rather than waiting for an appeal.

Brethren, If we neglect to pay tithes and offerings we are robbing God of His portion and consequently robbing ourselves of His blessing and testifying we are not in His Bride and not in the rapture. We have to ensure we are among God’s tenth. Those who are not faithful in tithe paying will have no part in the rapture and translation. The rapture has been in process since Christ opened the Seven Seals in 1963 and revealed them through His prophet—the New Testament Elijah of Malachi 4;5-6 and Matthew 17:11. Thus the translation of the faithful living Saints may be later than you think. Those with the Spirit of God will understand and obey the revealed Word but those who know to do righteousness but refuse it are in iniquity and will suffer the awful curse of God. nl624.htm

Defections shake up Climate Coalition

February 17. 2010 — Oil giants BP PLC and ConocoPhillips and heavy-equipment maker Caterpillar Inc. said Tuesday they won’t renew their membership in the three-year-old US Climate Action Partnership, a broad business-environmental coalition that had been instrumental in building support in Washington for capping emissions of greenhouse gases.

The move comes as debate over climate change intensifies and concerns mount about the cost of capping greenhouse-gas emissions. . . Full story: wsj.com


All in the Family

February 5, 2010 — Recent exposes reveal editors, senior journalists, foreign editors and TV correspondents reporting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for New York Times, Atlantic Journal, US News & World Report, NPR, San Diego Union-Tribune, Associated Press, Time Magazine, CNN, Tikkun and other media organizations are not impartial but Israeli citizens with family members or are themselves serving in the Israeli military, so news reaching the West is not impartial.

“It is common to hear Western reporters boasting to one another about their Zionist credentials, their service in the Israeli army or the loyal service of their children.” Apparently, intimate ties to Israel are among the many open secrets in the region that are hidden from the American public. If, as the news media insist, these ties present no problem or even, as the Times Keller insists, enhance the journalists’ work, why do the news agencies consistently refuse to admit them?

The reason is not complicated.

While Israel may be family for these journalists and editors, for the vast majority of Americans, Israel is a foreign country. In survey after survey, Americans say they don’t wish to “take sides” on this conflict. In other words, the American public wants full, unfiltered, unslanted coverage. Quite likely the news media refuse to answer questions about their journalists’ affiliations because they suspect, accurately, that the public would be displeased to learn that the reporters and editors charged with supplying news on a foreign nation and conflict are, in fact, partisans. . .

Targeting the Wrong Kind of Tunnels

February 20, 2010 — At a time when extreme and even unthinkable measures are being taken to completely sever the few remaining passageways of life into Gaza through Rafah’s underground tunnels into Egypt, other tunnels of a different kind and a different purpose are being dug elsewhere everyday in broad daylight for all the world to see in occupied East Jerusalem under the Al-Aqsa mosque compound and its surrounding areas . . .

Whereas Gaza’s network of underground tunnels that reach the Egyptian side of Rafah are constructed out of despair and absolute necessity by a besieged and cornered population, Jerusalem’s underground mining is carried out by—and with the tight guardianship of—the Israeli military; allegedly to unearth historical evidence for the presence of King David in that area when in reality these operations are solely driven by a salivating desire to Judaize the entire city and drastically alter its Palestinian identity. . . no . . . super steel walls and cutting-edge monitoring technologies to try and halt these illegal underground tunnels . . .

Comment: Zechariah 14:5, “You will escape through the valley of My mountains, which will reach to Azal at the eastern gate: You will flee as you fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah”.

HAARP: Artificial Ionosphere creates Bullseye in the Sky

Chilean earthquakeOctober 2, 2009 — HAARP’s high-frequency radio waves can accelerate electrons in the atmosphere, increasing the energy of their collisions and creating a glow. The technique has previously triggered speckles of light while running at a power of almost 1 megawatt1. But since the facility ramped up to 3.6 megawatts—roughly three times more than a typical broadcast radio transmitter—it has created full-scale artificial auroras that are visible to the naked eye. . . The scientists believe that these dense patches of plasma could be gas that was ionized by the HAARP emissions. “This is the really exciting part—we’ve made a little artificial piece of ionosphere,” Pedersen says.

“The novelty is not seeing the aurora—it’s the fact that we can actually create enough high-energy electrons to form plasma,” says Mike Kosch, chair of Experimental Space Science at Lancaster University, UK, and a former co-worker of Pedersen’s who was not involved in the experiment. . .

Comment: The 8.8 February 27, 2010 earthquake in Chile (see above) was the seventh largest earthquake on record. According to reports our Brethren, their church and homes are unharmed. In this interview a witness reports seeing lights in the sky at the time of the earthquake, which is the signature of HAARP evident at the time of the 8.0 May 12, 2008 earthquake in Sichuan, said to have been induced to explode China’s main nuclear arsenal as reported in Newsletter #530, and shown in this commentary.

South American platesThis map of the South American plates shows the San Andreas Fault is a continental transform fault that runs along the boundary of the Pacific and North American plates for about 810 miles through California in the United States, and Baja California in Mexico, continuing down the Mexican coast as the boundary between the Cocos and North American plates. Here the North American plate crosses the isthmus bridging North and South America, passing under the island of Hispaniola which straddles the Caribbean and North American plates. Haiti occupies the north-western third of this island. The continental transform fault also continues south between the Nazca plate and the South American plate which it is subducting, causing volcanism, earthquakes and orogenesis. Hence the Chilean earthquake.

According to research scientist Richard Gross at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, the earthquake that struck Chile may have changed the entire Earth’s rotation, having moved Earth’s figure axis by about 3 inches and shortened the length of days on our planet by 1.26 microseconds.

The US military is now preparing to simulate how it would respond to a big earthquake in Alaska at the end of April.


The Whole Creation Groans in Travail – Part V

Israel’s repentance and conversion foretold in Zechariah 12 – 13 will be realized in Zechariah 14 which describes Daniel’s Seventieth Week in “the time of Jacob’s trouble”—the consummation of their dreadful trials for rejecting the Holy Spirit and murdering Messiah, their glorious deliverance, and the martyrdom of an election (Jeremiah 30:7; Matthew 27:24-26).

When Israel’s first Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion announced the establishment of the modern state of Israel on May 14, 1948, he read Ezekiel 37 which said it will be like dead men’s bones. Joel 3:1-2 spoke of the day of the Lord under the Sixth Seal after our dispensation saying, “In those days, and at that time the Lord will gather the children of Judah and Jerusalem . . . and My heritage Israel, whom the heathens have scattered among the [now Muslim] nations of their [Assyrian] captivity,” and unite them as one nation in the land of the Covenant by the revelation of the Feast of Trumpets. And after the midst of Daniel’s Seventieth Week, their elect will realize Zechariah’s “Light in the evening time” is the Logos, Jesus Messiah’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming, and be filled with His Spirit (Hosea 6:1-3; Zechariah 14:7).

While the latter or harvest rain falls upon all flesh, and the just and the unjust manifest the life of the seed received into their soul (Daniel 12:10; Matthew 5:45; Hebrews 6:7-8; Revelation 22:11), the elect Israelites will receive their former or teaching rain through the prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 ministering in Jerusalem “which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was crucified.” Here the folly of British Israel and Christian Identity doctrine is made manifest, for Israel’s deliverance or new birth will be found only in Zion (Isaiah 4:3; 59:20-21; Joel 2:32; Obadiah 1:17; Romans 11:26). God deals with Israel as a nation, and consequently only in the land of the Covenant, for any Israelite outside the land is outside the Covenant. The judgment of the heathen nations, with the emphasis on Edomite Jewry, will be a means of delivering elect natural Israel, and the whole nation, all 144,000, will be born-again in one day.

Zechariah 14:1-2 marks the end of the Gentile dispensation and man’s day when the Seventh Trumpet, Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial announce the day of the Lord with earthquakes that sink Los Angeles and cleave the mount of Olives. Then “the Lord will gather all the nations to war against Jerusalem (Joel 2:1-27; 3:2; Isaiah 13:6), which will be captured, its houses rifled and their spoil casually divided within the city. The women will be raped (Isaiah 13:16) and half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city”.

Israel is a type of the United States, which will be invaded and conquered under the same circumstances and at the same time. “Because you have listened to such stuff as these television programs on rock-and-roll and sin, and some cold formal preacher not able to interpret the supernatural. The handwriting is on the wall. That’s right. And we are weighed in the balance and found wanting. . . The Bible says it will happen” (William Branham, Handwriting on the Wall, p. 11:84-90).

Isaiah 13 describes the opening of the Sixth Seal at the end of our dispensation with a prophecy against the nations and a denunciation of judgment against MYSTERY Babylon (when the union between the spiritual and physical Serpent’s seed disintegrates – Daniel 2:40-45). It is a compound prophecy. As the Medes and the nations of Persia and Armenia ended Judah’s captivity under the first Gentile world empire by defeating ancient Babylon in man’s day, in the day of the Lord He will assemble the modern “Medes” and all of the nations to execute judgment upon Judah’s present-day captors as prophesied in Ezekiel 38 and 39 where Magog represents Russia, which sprung from intermarriage between Scythians and Medes. God will execute His fierce anger upon the arrogant non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews who are foreigners to Israel, bound neither by ties of piety nor possession and who will “flee like scared gazelles or a panic-stricken herd, every man to his own people, and flee every one into his own land” (Isaiah 13:14-17; Jeremiah 46:16; 50:16). As Brother Branham often sang:

  •  
    •  
      •  
        •  
          •  
            •  
                The fig tree is growing, Jerusalem’s restoring,
                Her national life, long dethroned;
                Today she is calling
                Her latter rain’s falling,
                Return, O dispersed to your own.

Following the earthquake, Mount Moriah, bare of temple and mosque, will be a signal whereby the Lord beckons and calls to these “Medes,” His “sanctified ones with the kingdoms of the nations He has mustered together to enter the gates of [Zion’s] tyrants and execute His judgment” (1-5; Joel 2:1-11; Zephaniah 1:14-18). It will also signal the believing exiles of Judah, Benjamin and Levi, and Israel’s ten tribes, to return to the land of the Covenant for their redemption (Matthew 24:3, 29-34). “The day of the Lord comes as a destruction from the Almighty. . . cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to make earth a desolation and to destroy the sinners out of it.” As with the shock attack at Belshazzar’s feast, men’s hearts will fail as volcanoes and quakes “shake the heavens, turning the Moon into blood when Earth moves from its axis, darkening the Sun and extinguishing the stars; and for fear of [tidal waves, the great tribulation, biological and atomic warfare] prophesied to come upon earth” (7-10; Zechariah 14:12; Luke 21:25-28; Hebrews 12:25-29). Three and a half years later “All kindreds of the earth shall wail,” when in hindsight they recognize this was Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel (Revelation 1:7).

In parallel with Zechariah 14, Isaiah 13 is prophesying the opening terrors of the Sixth Seal with the earthquakes of verse 13; 2:10-21; 29:6; 34:4; Joel 2:10-11; Haggai 2:6; Revelation 6:12; 8:5; 11:19, and 16:18-19. “I will stir up the Medes, who neither care for silver nor desire gold” and will be impelled by higher motives. The Lord will “raise up the spirit of the kings of the Medes as His device against the [violent last Gentile world empire] of [Judaeo-Catholic MYSTERY] Babylon,” striking the earthquake-smitten belligerent terrorist twins, Israel and the united States of America, “to destroy [them all]; for that is the vengeance of the Lord, the vengeance for His temple”—not the temple razed by Nebuchadnezzar and Titus, but His millennium temple of 144,000 elect Israelites (Jeremiah 51:11; Isaiah 61:2; Luke 21:20-22). Under the real holocausts of Lenin and Stalin, those Judaeo-Communist golems of ‘the City of London,’ scores of millions of Christians were mercilessly slaughtered and ‘false flag’ massacres, assassinations and coups d’etat executed worldwide. Today sycophants of ‘the City’ are massacring millions of innocent Muslims to loot natural resources and realize the insane, unscriptural nightmare of a “greater Israel,” eliminating genuine Israelites and encircling Judaeo-Communist Russia with military garrisons in the process. When this earthquake demolishes the Dome of the Rock the natural Medes will have a religious impulse, and their political offspring Russia, a strategic purpose to attack.

The Prophet said Russia covets Israel’s vast mineral wealth whose estimated total value is four times that of the United States. “The Red Sea and all these things they’re putting out the materials that’s there [owned by Rothschild], the Jews, real rich, then that same thing [the abomination of Rome’s heathen worship forcing her mark of the beast] will pollute their camp again (Ezekiel 7:20-22; 39:7; Daniel 11:30-39; 12:7, 13-14; Revelation 13:15-18). Yeah. [Again in the second half of the Seventieth Week . . .] They’ll come right down, the cities of the world. Russia will come down, say, “We just got to have that stuff. That’s uranium and everything down there; we got to go get it.” And as they go down, then will be the battle of Armageddon. That’ll be when God will stand like He did in the valley [of Jehoshaphat] for the children of Israel and fight again” (C.O.D., p. 77:111).

The Lord’s Temple is Spiritual Israel—an election of Christians, and our 144,000 Israelite servants (living mainly in the Muslim lands of the ancient Assyrian empire) who will become the Temple of Christ and His Bride in the millennium. For this reason the Luciferian ‘City of London’ and Rothschild’s fiefdom puppet state of non-Semitic modern Israel regard Christianity and Islam as “the enemy” (Genesis 3:15; 27:39-41).

“I will punish the whole world for its evil and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will put an end to the arrogance of the proud and will lay low the haughtiness of the ruthless. Few will live when I have finished My work. I will make men scarcer than fine gold, and mankind rarer than the gold of Ophir” (11-12; 2:10 – 6:13; Malachi 4:1). Truth and righteousness are so scarce today, particularly among our degenerate, dysfunctional national and world leaders, that when the wicked are destroyed the martyred remnant will be as scarce, pure and precious as fine gold in comparison: just 144,000 souls in a world of billions.

Rome, the Black Nobility and the banksters of ‘the City of London’ all seek control of Jerusalem whence the pope will rule Lucifer’s totalitarian one world government through the covenant of Daniel 9:27 and an impersonation of Bible Prophecy. Do you see why the USA is under submission to Israel? It is because, like Britain, she remains a colony of the Jews’ City of London and will be in alliance with the Roman world church system. Even now “they are gathering the kings of the earth and of the whole world to Armageddon” (Revelation 16:13-16), and following a brief World War II in which Israel and the USA will be invaded by Russia and the Muslim nations, they will unite the religions and the nations under one world government, ostensibly to restore peace and restrain Judaeo-Communism. The heavenly sanctuary being cleansed by the casting out of Satan and the Seventh Vial having been poured out to separate the foolish virgin from the hypocrites (Revelation 12:7-12; 15:5-8; 16:17; 11:19), the Jews’ daily sacrifice will be restored on mount Moriah and the abomination of a new temple “made with hands” will desolate the holy place (Isaiah 14; Daniel 8:23-25; Acts 7:48; II Thessalonians 2; Revelation 13:8).

Zechariah 12:2 states, “I will make Jerusalem a cup of staggering to the surrounding nations when they are in the siege against Judah and against Jerusalem” (Isaiah 29:9). This attack at the start of Daniel’s Seventieth Week will activate the covenant between a revived Judaeo-Roman empire, the Black Nobility and Jewish plutocracy (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:12-14). The Lord will make a way of escape for His elect as He did in the days of Uzziah (Zechariah 14:5), and Lucifer will restore peace under Roman one world government (Revelation 13:4). Zechariah 14:3, “The Lord will go forth and fight against those nations as in His day of battle, in the day of conflict” when He fought for Israel against the Egyptians at the Red Sea (Exodus 14:14; 15:3). And as He then made a way through the divided sea, so now will He cleave in two “the Mount of Olives” to provide a way of escape for those not taken into captivity.

Zechariah 14:4-7, “In that day His feet will stand on the mount of Olives to the east of Jerusalem [asserting dominion and subjection in claiming His possession (Deuteronomy 11:24; Psalm 8:6; Daniel 12:1; I Corinthians 15:27; Revelation 10:1-2)], and the mount of Olives will cleave in the middle, forming a very wide valley running eastward and westward; half of the mountain will move toward the north, and half toward the south. You will escape through the valley of My mountains, which will reach up to Azal” by the eastern or St. Stephen’s gate so as to enable the citizens to flee by this new passage immediately on leaving Jerusalem, and the same divinely sent earthquake that opens out a way of escape to the Hebrews will swallow up the foe as in the crossing of the Red Sea.

Brother Branham explained, this broad valley is not created by the earthquake but by the new fifteen hundred mile high mount Zion beginning to push up from beneath thrusting these new mountains apart. He was speaking metaphorically, for this new pyramid mountain will not rise until after the millennium and White Throne Judgment when heavens and earth are renewed. However, as Christ’s Bride of all Ages is the Lord’s Mountain Kingdom, when the earthquakes sink Los Angeles and cleave the mount of Olives, our part of mount Zion will begin to push up from beneath as our sleeping Brethren raise up out of the earth (I Corinthians 15:42-57). The earthquake of Zechariah 14:4-5, Isaiah 29:6 and Revelation 16:19 says that after three days the Mount Zion rapture will commence. Three and a half years later the 144,000 will recognize the “Rock of offence” God lay in Zion is the Capstone which the builders disallowed, as indicated by its want on Enoch’s the Bible in Stone (Isaiah 8:13-14; I Peter 2:6-8).

Zechariah 4:7, “Who are you, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel [a type of Christ and lineal descendant of David who restored the first temple] you will become a plain (Isaiah 2:2; Daniel 2:35; Zechariah 14:10): and Christ shall bring forth the Capstone [completing the redemption of the last Temple] with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.” When Israel recognize the ‘parousia’ Coming of their rejected King they will see the Capstone fulfilled in His Queen, and themselves as their Royal millennium Temple.

Isaiah 2:1-5, “The Word which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. It shall come to pass in the last days, that the Mountain of the Lord’s House shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and be raised above the hills, to which all nations shall stream. And many peoples shall go and exhort, Come! and let us go up to the Mountain of the Lord, to the House of the God of Jacob, that He may teach us concerning His ways, and we will walk in His paths. For instruction in Truth [which is the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Isaiah 42:1-4, 21)] sought by the nations [or innumerable offspring of Abraham’s Royal Seed (Isaiah 53:10; 65:23) promised in Genesis 22:15-18: Spiritual Israel, the Gentile Church (Daniel 7:10; Revelation 7:9-17). The Gospel of Truth] shall go forth out of Zion and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem (Luke 24:47). And He shall judge between the nations (Matthew 25:31-32) and decide for many peoples; they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. O House [descended from Abraham, Isaac and] Jacob, come, let us walk in the Light of the Lord” (Micah 4).

Isaiah, Daniel and Zechariah describe the same “Mountain Kingdom” which grows by faith in Christ’s Bride of all Ages—“the many peoples” whose testimony passes His Life through the Body to God’s elect; and which, after our Homecoming will enter the heart of an election from “the House of Jacob,” our millennium Temple. In the renewed heavens and renewed earth One God will be manifest in the glorified Jesus Christ and His Bride as one City on one Mountain which alone will be exalted. “The haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the Lord alone will be exalted in that day” (Isaiah 2:12-17) manifest in the flesh of His glorified Family. Millennial “realization” must be forerun by “revelation” manifest in the lives of His saints (Acts 3:19-28).

Zechariah 14:7-11 telescopes the “revelation” to the physical “realization” of the millennium and the renewed heavens and earth (Isaiah 66:8; Zechariah 3:9-10). “It will be one day known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but at evening time it shall be Light. In that day, living waters shall flow out from Jerusalem, half of them toward the Dead Sea, and half of them to the Mediterranean Sea continuously in summer and in winter. And the Lord will be King over all the earth. In that day shall there be One Lord, and His Name alone will be worshipped. And [relative to the fifteen hundred mile high mountain] all the land shall become like a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem. But Jerusalem shall remain elevated, from Benjamin’s gate to the place of the first gate, then to the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel to the king’s winepresses. And it shall be inhabited, for it will no longer be placed under a curse, Jerusalem shall dwell in security”.

“You will flee as you fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord My God shall come, and all the saints with You.” Once again we need to separate “revelation” from physical “realization.” To the elect Israelites this speaks of their “revelation” of the ‘parousia’ Coming of “the Lord their God,” Jesus Christ, attended by His Gentile Wife and the Old Testament saints. This “revelation” of the resurrected Messiah and His resurrected Queen returning with the resurrected Old Testament saints will cause the nation of 144,000 elect Israelites to be born in one day (Isaiah 66:8). However its physical “realization” will not take place until the millennium.

From our prospect as Christ’s end-time Bride this speaks of our much earlier “revelation” of His ‘parousia’ Coming with the theophanies of the Church Age saints physically “realized” in the first resurrection of I Thessalonians 4:17. “If we believe that Jesus died and rose again, we can also believe that when Jesus returns God will bring back with Him those who have fallen asleep . . . For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with the shout [of Brother Branham’s end-time Message], with the voice of the Archangel [Christ in the heart of His Bride placing the Message from Genesis to Revelation], and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord”.

Thus the following Scriptures confirm that the earthquake of Zechariah 14:4-5, Isaiah 29:6 and Revelation 16:19 that cleaves the mount of Olives in Israel will be coincident with the earthquake that sinks Los Angeles beneath the Pacific (Revelation 6:12; 16:18-20 and 18:21-24).

Zechariah, Daniel 7:9-10 and Matthew 25:31-30 all telescope the “revelation” of Christ’s ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel with His glorified physical “realization” in the millennium and the White Throne Judgment to follow after a thousand years, while Revelation 19:1-15 telescopes Israel’s “revelation” of Christ’s ‘parousia’ Coming with Armageddon.

Matthew 25:31-32 “When the Son of man comes in His glory with all the holy angels [the glorified saints of all Ages], He will sit on the throne of His glory [on this earth, as heaven is God’s throne (Isaiah 66:1; Revelation 3:21)]: all nations will be gathered before Him: and He will separate them from one another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats”

Zechariah 14:6-7, “And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Light shall not be clear, nor dark: but it shall be a unique day which shall be known only to the Lord (Matthew 24:36; Acts 1:6-7), not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be Light”.

In Laodicea the Gentile world became lukewarm “lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God: having a form of godliness but denying His inherent power” (II Timothy 3 – 4). And as Israel apostatised when she rejected Christ’s physical Coming, Laodicea apostatised when the evening Light of His second or ‘parousia’ Coming (Revelation 3:20) was obscured by the ambivalent gloom of man-made creed and tradition and Satan seduced worship from Logos to reason in the church. The following Scriptures describe the natural phenomena associated with the opening of the Sixth Seal when Israel’s Seventh Trumpet announces Christ’s ‘parousia’ return to Israel and calls the physical resurrection.

Isaiah 13:9-14; 34:1-8 and 63:1-6 speak of separating Edomite Jews from Israelites returning to the land of their Covenant. And Joel 2:10, 31; 3:15; Matthew 24:29-31; Mark 8:38 and Revelation 6:12-14 depict the convulsions of nature that will induce their exit and confirm that the earthquake of Zechariah 14:4-5 is coincident with that which will sink Los Angeles (Revelation 6:12; 18:21-24). Revelation 16:18-20, “The outpouring of the Seventh Vial will be followed by voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so extensive and severe [it will sink the Jews’ Los Angeles and Hollywood, “whose sorceries deceived all nations,” when a 1,500 x 300-400 segment of earth’s crust falls beneath the ocean]. The great city of Jerusalem will be split into three parts; cities throughout the world will collapse in heaps of rubble, and [Rome, MYSTERY] Babylon the great will come in remembrance before God, to make her drink the cup of His furious wrath. Islands will vanish, and mountains flatten out.” Once again we see the Sixth Seal is telescoped to the renewed earth.

With respect to Daniel 12:1, Brother Branham said: “It is in the midst of a time of great trouble that Jesus comes. And with His Coming there is a resurrection. Many are to come forth out of the dust and rise with those who are alive but waiting for His return. And these will be given crowns. Why? Because they are Sons of God. They are kings with Him. They are reigning with Him. That is what the crown signifies—reigning and ruling with the Great King, Himself. That is the promise to all those who suffer with Him here on earth—all those who endured patiently knowing that God, the Just Judge would reward them. They who gave up all for Him and committed all to Him will sit down in His throne and share in His glorious kingdom” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 315:2).

As indicated by the sign of His ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel (Zechariah 14:4; Matthew 24:29-30), “Michael will stand up” or commence His reign (Daniel 11:2-3) when the day of the Lord begins and He casts Satan and his angels down to earth (Revelation 12:7-13). After the siege of Jerusalem at the start of Daniel’s Seventieth Week, “The Lord will go forth and fight against those nations,” however Israel will not recognize this sign until the beast having ruled forty-two months, “makes war with the saints” and “thy people” are born-again (Jeremiah 30:7; Daniel 11:45; 12:5-8; Revelation 13:5). Thereafter they will be martyred and enter the first resurrection to return with the saints of all Ages for the millennium (Malachi 4:1-3), while the rest of the dead will be sleep until the second or general resurrection (Daniel 12:2).

This Cloud over mount Zion signifying Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming (Daniel 21:1; Zechariah 14:4; Matthew 24:30) will be the countersign to the Cloud of glory over Sunset mountain, Arizona, on February 28, 1963. His precious feet will not touch this earth until He returns with the glorified saints of all Ages to step out on the atomic ashes of the wicked for a thousand years of peace (Malachi 4:1-3; Matthew 3:12; Revelation 19:20; 20:5). Its important significance will be unrecognized until after the midst of Daniel’s Seventieth Week, as the significance of our Cloud was not recognized for some years. For Israel this will fulfill the prophecy of Acts 1:10-12:

“Jesus was taken up into a Cloud of glory that carried Him from their view. And as they strained their eyes for a further glimpse of their Lord, suddenly two men in white apparel stood by them, and said, Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come again in the same manner in which you have seen Him go into heaven. Then they returned to Jerusalem, which is a sabbath day’s walk from the mount of Olives”.

Jesus appeared many times in the visions of Ezekiel 1 – 11 in which the Lord anathematized Israel’s idolatry and Levitical uncleanliness, foretelling the destruction of Jerusalem and its people. Ezekiel 5 – 9 prophesied the siege of Titus and Judea’s dispersion among the Gentiles, which Jesus affirmed on the mount of Olives before His crucifixion (Matthew 24:3). In Ezekiel 9 the prophet saw Jesus Christ, Israel’s Messenger of mercy become her Messenger of judgment after “He came to His own nation, and His own received Him not” (John 1:11). Israel’s Mercy Seat became her Judgment seat, the priesthood was no longer her mediator with God but her executioner, and Christ, clothed in white linen, was seen as High Priest and Mediator for the PART-Word Church sealing the saints before Titus besieged the city. In Ezekiel 10:2 Christ was told to, “Go in between the whirling wheels beneath the cherub and take a handful of blazing coals, and scatter them over the city,” signifying God’s judgment to be exacted on Jerusalem wherein the people ate bark from the trees and even their own children. And when the armies of Titus finally entered the through the treachery of Edomite Jews, the city with its temple were leveled with the ground and its citizens scattered to “the four winds,” of war and strife for two thousand years under Seven Trumpets of judgment.

Even before Nebuchadnezzar razed the Temple, Ezekiel saw “The cherubim lift up their wings and rise into the air with their wheels beside them; and the glory of the God of Israel stood above them. Abandoning the Temple as His abode, the Shekinah went up from the midst of the city, and stood upon the mount of Olives East of the city” (Ezekiel 10:18-19; 11:22-23). The abandonment of the Temple was the abandonment of the city also (Hosea 5:15; Matthew 23:38-39), and a prophecy of Christ who is the glory of God turning from Israel to the Gentiles. The rainbow of grace and mercy seen in Ezekiel 1:28 was absent, for the six men with slaughtering weapons were commanded to “smite without mercy or pity all Judeans not baptized into Christ: slay old men, young men and maidens, children and women alike, but do not approach anyone who is sealed. Begin at My sanctuary. So they began with the old men who were in the Temple. And Christ said, Defile the Temple and fill its courts with the slain. Go out, and slay in the city. . . The guilt of the house of Israel and of Judah is exceedingly great; the land is full of bloodshed and the city full of injustice”.

I see no Biblical evidence regarding any Shekinah glory present in either the Temple of Zerubbabel or Herod since the sacred fire lit by God, Ark of the Covenant and the Urim and Thummim had been destroyed in the first Temple. The absence of the Shekinah in the Temples of Zerubbabel or Herod is established by Ezekiel 43:2-4 which signifies the Presence taking residence in each of the elect Israelites as it has entered each Christian temple.

In these visions the Lord foretold the initiation of 2,000 years of vengeance upon apostate Israel (Luke 21:20), and His return in mercy to an election of 144,000 blood Israelites—not so-called Jews—when retribution is ended. Once they are sealed into the Kingdom God will destroy the sinners. The ungodly character of Israel at their rejection of Messiah’s first Coming is seen today in the apostate churches, politicians, businessmen, institutions and the Gentile world generally since its rejection of His second Coming.

Judah’s servitude, captivity and desolations, and Nebuchadnezzar’s razing of God’s Temple and Jerusalem were a warning and foretaste of “seven times more” chastisement Israel would receive under 2,000 years of Roman domination owing to its wicked recalcitrance foretold in Daniel 9. The departure of the symbol of God’s Presence from the Temple preparatory to the destruction of the city was foretold by Moses, “This people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land among whom they are about to come, and will forsake Me, breaking the Covenant I have made with them. My anger will be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them and hide My face from them, and they will be devastated; and calamities and troubles will befall them. In that day they will cry out and say, Have not these evils come upon us because our God is not among us? But at that time I will withdraw My face from them because of the sins they have committed in turning to other gods” (Deuteronomy 31:16-18; Hosea 9:12).

This is precisely what has happened to the Gentile churches at the end of the Laodicean Church Age when the sevenfold Spirit of the Lord left earth and returned before the throne of God (Revelation 4:5). Christ’s mediation for the ignorance of PART-Word was fulfilled, and the Blood removed from the Mercy Seat; Christ claimed the Book of Redemption, loosed its Seven Seals (Revelation 5:1-7; 6; 8:1) and returned to earth, placing judgment on Rome, the beast from the sea, and on her (once) Protestant image, the US beast from the earth. He revealed the mysteries of the Seven Thunders which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals to the seventh angel (Revelation 10:1-7) whose Message is the “shout” of I Thessalonians 4:16, which is the “midnight cry” of Matthew 25:6 calling the wise and foolish virgin out of MYSTERY Babylon the great to be filled with the Spirit (Revelation 18:4).

After Brother Branham had addressed a Full Gospel Business Men’s breakfast in California on February 11, 1961 a Baptist Brother said, “That sermon could be put into the Book of Revelation. I want to pray for you, Brother Branham.” He threw his arms around the Prophet and began to speaking in tongues. When he had spoken a Frenchman from Louisiana said, that wasn’t an unknown tongue, it was French. And a woman from Lausanne, Switzerland, followed by a young man who was an interpreter with the UN came forward with the translation:

“Because thou hast chosen the narrow path, the harder way, thou hast walked in your own choosing. Thou hast picked the correct and precise decision and it is My way. Because of this momentous decision, a huge portion of Heaven awaits thee. What a glorious decision thou hast made! This in itself is what will give and make come to pass the tremendous victory in the love divine”.

Heaven consists of the Word or Logos, not PART-Word. Revelation 19 depicts Jesus coming to Armageddon to judge and make war. He is crowned with many crowns, His garments are dipped in blood, and His Name is called The Word of God, or Logos. With Him is the vindicated Word of His resurrected saints. The prophecy matches God’s Commission and promise to Brother Branham on August 7, 1957, which was Joshua 1:5-7:

“No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with you: I will not fail you, nor forsake you. Be strong and of a good courage: for you will divide the land for an inheritance to this people, which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, to observe the whole Law, which Moses My servant commanded you: do not depart from it to the right hand or to the left so that you may prosper wherever you go”.

Stature of the Perfect ManBrother Branham’s sermons are in the beloved Book of Revelation sealed under Old Testament symbols. The spoken Word of his Message revealed the mysteries of the Seven Thunders Daniel and John were told to “seal up unto the time of the end” (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4). They are the revelations contained in the unwritten Seventh Seal that unfolds the six written Seals, “finishing the mystery of God” and revealing the fullness of the Word as prophesied in I Corinthians 13:10. They brought Christ back to earth as the Logos or (W_O_R_D) form. His Message is that “huge portion of Heaven . . . [which] . . . in itself is what will give and make come to pass the tremendous victory in the love divine” as without the Capstone Bride the PART-Word saints of the Church Ages cannot be raised and glorified (Hebrews 11:39-40). The “tremendous victory in Divine Love” engraved in the Capstone is faith’s victory of eternal Life over death (Matthew 12:20; I Corinthians 15:16-26; 54-56).

Like Joshua, Brother Branham put God’s Word first, and as Joshua divided the Land for an inheritance to the people under the Old Covenant, he defined the inheritance of the saints under the New Covenant to show us, Christ’s end-time Bride, what parts of the Word were fulfilled in the Church Ages, and that all seven Church Ages are fulfilled, so we will not err by impersonating the Word for a day gone by, but recognize our day and its Message, become written epistles of our part of the Word and enter our place in the Body.

As stated, Christ’s Mediation was fulfilled when the last saint predestinated to the PART-Word division of the Body was born-again in Laodicea, then redemption was over. In Revelation 5 the elders advertised for a Kinsman Redeemer and the bleeding bloody Lamb advanced from the altar of sacrifice where His body had lain as a memorial, took the title deed to redemption and became the Lion of the tribe of Judah. Before Him were the elders with “golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of the saints”.

Revelation 8:3-5 is in parenthesis explaining what takes place during the Silence in Heaven the Space of Half an Hour following the opening of the Seventh Seal. “And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and a vast quantity of incense was given to him to mingle with the prayers of all saints [for we are one Body] upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand”.

This “vast quantity of incense,” the Prophet is mingling with the prayers or revelations of all saints is “the Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him, to show to His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and Jesus sent and signified it by His angel [William Branham] to His servant John” (Revelation 1:1; 3:14; 10:7; 14:8; 22:6, 9-10, etc). It is the “huge portion of Heaven . . . [which] . . . in itself is what will give and make come to pass the tremendous victory in the love divine.” A combination of incense with the prayers (or revelation) indicates Divine acceptance. Added to the faith of all saints it presents a perfect and acceptable offering “in the unity of the faith”.

Then “the angel took the censor, and filled it with fire of the altar (as prophesied of Christ in Ezekiel 10:2, 7 following His crucifixion), and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.” These coals from the altar of incense in the heavenly Sanctuary had sanctified and offered back to God the revelation of His Word made flesh in the Bride of each age. When the last saint predestinated to Christ’s end-time Bride has taken his place in the Body, the evening service of the Pentecostal feast will have ended, and the cinders will be cast down to earth with Satan and his angels, cleansing the heavenly Sanctuary of their dross and marking the close of the Gentile dispensation with judgment smiting the earth (Malachi 4:6; Matthew 3:12). The Alaskan earthquake on Good Friday 1964 was a token of what will take place at the Seventh Trump of Revelation 11:15-19, the Sixth Seal, the Third Woe and the Seventh Vial.

Zechariah 14:4-7 foretold how, under the Sixth Seal an election of Israelites will flee eastward through the valley of God’s mountains, escaping their enemies. And later in Daniel’s Seventieth week, Revelation 7, which is a parenthesis under the Sixth Seal, records the sealing of the 144,000 elect Israelites upon their revelation of Christ’s parousia and the sign of the Cloud returning from the East three and a half years previously.

Ezekiel 43:1-2 and 7 also describes the Presence returning from the East as foretold to the disciples by the two Hebrew witnesses anointed with the Spirit that endued Moses and Elijah (Acts 1:10-11). Once “the Holy Place, and the Altar of Incense, and they who worship therein” are measured (Ezekiel 40:3; Revelation 11:1), the 144,000 who will comprise the millennium temple will all have been hewn from the world and gathered by the feast of the Trumpet mysteries as Solomon’s temple “was built of stones finished in the quarry: so that there was neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was being built” (I Kings 6:7). Thus the millennium temple will complete and finished as an actual house for the Lord, signifying Israel’s two witnesses “shall have finished their testimony” (Revelation 11:7).

Ezekiel is taken back to the East gate that He may see the return of the glory of the God of Israel to take His rest in the millennial Temple by the new birth of the 144,000. “And I beheld the glory of the God of Israel come from the east: and the sound of His Coming was like the sound of many waters: and the earth shone with His glory. And He said to me, Son of man, this is the place of My throne, and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and the house of Israel shall no more defile My holy Name, neither they, nor their kings, by their idolatry, nor by the idolatrous adulation and adoration of them and their religious edicts”.

God from the first claimed to be Israel’s King politically as well as religiously: He had resisted their wish to have a human king, as implying a rejection of Him as the proper Head of the state. Even when He yielded to their wish, it was with a protest against their king ruling except as His vicegerent. When Messiah reigns at Jerusalem, He will then first realize the original idea of the theocracy, with its at once divine and human king reigning in righteousness over a people all righteous (Ezekiel 43:12; Isaiah 52:1; 54:13; Zechariah 14:20-21; Revelation 21:27; 22:15).

When Israel is born-again in one day, “they will sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb [to Jesus Messiah], Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are Your ways, You King of saints. Who shall not reverence You, O Lord, and glorify Your Name? for You alone are holy: for all nations shall come and worship before You; for the justification of Your judgments upon Israel is made manifest” (Revelation 15:3-4). nl623.htm
