Anger rises over US Tax Dollars for Settlements

July 24, 2010 — Anger has arisen in Palestinian areas over reports millions of tax-exempt dollars from the US are being funneled towards Israel’s illegal settlement building in the Palestinian West Bank—in flagrant violation of international law.

This is happening under the nose of the US administration despite its claims of support for a two-state solution and criticism of Israel’s continued settlement building. . . According to a recent report in The New York Times 40 US groups have raised more than 200 million dollars in tax-deductable donations for Jewish settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem during the last ten years. US tax rules prohibit the use of charitable funds for political purposes at home or abroad. . . Religious groups have no obligation to divulge their finances, meaning settlements may be receiving sums that cannot be traced.

There are currently half a million Israeli settlers in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank. . . money has also gone towards the outposts which are illegal even under Israeli law. . . El’ad has been behind the financing and digging up of Palestinian homes in . . . East Jerusalem in order to establish a Jewish theme park. . . Full story: truth-out.org


Obama interfering in Kenyan Politics

July 25, 2010 — Obama ordered US Ambassador to Kenya, Michael Ranneberger, to support the Kenyan constitutional changes proposed by Obama’s cousin and Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga. In fact, Obama sent Vice President Joe Biden to Nairobi on June 8, 2010 to encourage Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki to support the new constitution.

Biden brought promises of American investment in the East African Common Market (the precursor of the African Union [which thus far includes Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi], and which, ultimately, will be modeled after the European Union with a common currency), and the possibility of a contingency of US troops to protect Kenya’s borders from Somalia. . . And, of course, the caveat—a $23 million “grant” to ten groups in Kenya that is being used to bribe members of the Kenyan parliament to vote “yes” on adopting the new constitution which the media in Kenya claims is supported by 62% of the Kenyan people. The Obama grant is illegal under the Logan Act. . .

The new proposed constitution . . . strengthens Sharia law . . . Making Sharia courts equal to the traditional court system is something the majority Christian population fear, and thus, oppose. Forty-five percent of all Kenyans are Christians. . . only about 10% of the Kenyan population is Muslim. . . Since the 2008 massacre of over 1,000 Christians by Islam extremists, the Christian majority has grown to fear the Muslim minority.

The Muslims argued that Sharia courts should be equal to Kenya’s traditional judicial system. A provision in the new constitution, which will be voted on in Parliament on August 4, 2010, will make the Sharia courts equal to the traditional courts of Kenya. If Obama and Odinga are successful in bribing enough lawmakers in the Kenyan parliament. . .

WWF hopes to find $60 Billion growing on Trees

March 20, 2010 — If the world’s largest, richest environmental campaigning group, the WWF—formerly the World Wildlife Fund—announced that it was playing a leading role in a scheme to preserve an area of the Amazon rainforest twice the size of Switzerland, many people might applaud, thinking this was just the kind of cause the WWF was set up to promote. Amazonia has long been near the top of the list of the world’s environmental concerns, not just because it includes easily the largest and most bio-diverse area of rainforest on the planet, but because its billions of trees contain the world’s largest land-based store of CO2—so any serious threat to the forest can be portrayed as a major contributor to global warming.

A hidden agenda of the scheme to preserve this chunk of the forest was to allow the WWF and its partners to share the selling of carbon credits worth $60 billion, to enable firms in the industrial world to carry on emitting CO2 just as before… The idea is that credits representing the CO2 locked into this particular area of jungle—so remote that it is not under any threat—should be sold on the international market, allowing thousands of companies in the developed world to buy their way out of having to restrict their carbon emissions. The net effect would simply be to make the WWF and its partners much richer while making no contribution to lowering overall CO2 emissions.

WWF, which already earns £400 million yearly, much of it contributed by governments and taxpayers, has long been at the center of efforts to talk up the threat to the Amazon rainforest—as shown recently by the furore over a much-publicised passage in the 2007 report of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The IPCC’s claim that 40 per cent of the forest is threatened by global warming, it turned out, was not based on any scientific evidence, but simply on WWF propaganda, which had wholly distorted the findings of an earlier study on the threat posed to the forest, not by climate change but by logging.

Comment: This is a scheme whereby the thugs of ‘the City of London’ plan to hoodwink the world under the guise of protecting the environment from the beneficial effects of life-giving CO2 when in fact they propose to take billions under false pretenses with which to bribe compliant presidents, prime ministers and lawmakers to enact legislation mandating some form of carbon trading scheme whereby the carbon ‘footprint’ of corporations and nations would be assessed and monies transferred via the IMF and WB who would extract a commission and pass the funds to organizations such as the WWF to preserve their ‘carbon sinks.’ In turn they will employ funds to grease the palms and compromise the best traitors money can hire to sell their nations into the level playing field of servitude to the usurers, and Lucifer’s one world order.


Where is the Tattoo?

Ellie Wiesel, no tattooElie Wiesel has told us for over 50 years that he was tattooed at Auschwitz in 1944, and that his tattoo number is A7713. He has repeatedly said that he still has this original tattoo on his arm. Just last March in Dayton, Ohio, Elie met with the press, high school and college students, and 2,300 members of the local community. As reported in the Dayton Daily News, one student asked Wiesel if he still has his concentration camp number and if it serves as a reminder of those terrible experiences. “I don’t need that to remember, I think about my past every day,” he responded. “But I still have it on my arm—A7713. At that time, we were numbers. No names, no identity”. . . Full story: eliewieseltattoo.com


The Fourth Seal– Part I

From the beginning there have been two spirits, God and the created being Lucifer, His original archangel and right-hand man to fellowship, the greatest person in the heavens beside God until he became the Adversary. We first encounter them in the garden of Eden where “he was the seal of perfection, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty . . . faultless until iniquity was found in him” (Ezekiel 28:12, 15):

Genesis 2:9, “Out of the ground the Lord God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the eye, and good for food; the Tree of Eternal Life in the midst of the garden, and also the Tree of Knowing Good and Evil” (Genesis 2:17; 3:3).

“Tree of Life” and the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil” did not grow from the ground as vegetation: these are metaphors describing two spirits that came down from heaven and appeared to Adam and Eve as the theophanies of Christ and Lucifer. We see their influence upon Abel and Cain, Jacob and Esau, Jesus and Judas, Christ and antichrist, and the true Vine and the false vine in the midst of the church as wheat and tares (John 15:1-7; Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43).

Jesus foretold, “False anointed ones [not false Jesuses] and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, IF it were possible, they would deceive the very elect” (Matthew 24:24). False anointed ones like the prophet Balaam whose history (Numbers 22) and the story of the avenging war against Midian (Numbers 31) imply that it was his advice to Balak that led the children of Israel into spiritual and natural fornication, have been in the circle of the Message from the beginning. In the first three Church Ages under the First Seal nicolaitane self-styled Jews graft into the True Vine [but not into the root] claimed preeminence over the Gentiles and introduced a separate class of priests over the laity, a high priest (pope), Passover (Easter), holy water and other elements of the defunct Israelitish temple service.

God spoke “unto the churches” plural through His Message to the angel of each Church Age, breathing eternal Life to the true vine that receives and overcomes by His revealed Word, which promises fellowship with the Tree of Life forever, and condemnation to the false vine that rejects His Message (Deuteronomy 18:18-19; John 3:18; Revelation 2:7).

The Tree in Eden that is the source of Life, was Jesus. “In John, chapters six through eight, Jesus sets Himself forth as the source of eternal Life. He called Himself the Bread from heaven. He spoke of giving Himself and that if a man ate of Him he would never die. He proclaimed that He knew Abraham, and that before Abraham, He WAS. He prophesied that He Himself would give them living waters that if man drank he would never thirst again, but would live eternally. He showed Himself as the GREAT I AM. He is the Bread of Life, the Well of Life, the Eternal One, the TREE OF LIFE. He was back there in Eden in the midst of the garden even as He will be in the midst of the paradise of God.

Some have an idea that the two trees in the garden were just two more trees like the rest of those that God had placed there. But careful students know that this is not so. When John the Baptist cried that the axe was laid to the root of all trees, he was not talking of simply natural trees, but of spiritual principles.
I John 5:11 says, “This is the RECORD, God has given to us eternal Life, and this Life is in His Son.” And Jesus said in John 5:40, “You will not come to Me, that you might have Life.” Thus the record, God’s Word, states plainly and clearly that LIFE, ETERNAL LIFE, is in the Son. It is no other place. I John 5:12, “He who has the Son has LIFE; and he who does not have the Son of God does NOT have Life.” Now since the record cannot change, be taken from or added thereunto, the record stands that THE LIFE IS IN THE SON. . . Since this is so, THE TREE IN THE GARDEN HAS TO BE JESUS.

If the Tree of Life is a person, then the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil is a person ALSO. It cannot be otherwise. Thus the Righteous One and the Wicked One stood side by side there in the midst of the Garden of Eden. Ezekiel 28:13a “You [Satan] have been in Eden, the garden of God.” The other tree is definitely Satan because of what came forth of the fruit of that tree (Matthew 7:16). Now then, we know that both of those trees had a relationship to man or they would never have been placed there. They must have had a part in the sovereign plan and purpose of God in their relationship to mankind and to Himself or we could never impute omniscience to God. This is all true so far, is it not? Now the Word most definitely sets forth that from BEFORE the foundation of the earth the purpose of God was to share His Eternal Life with man.

Ephesians 1:4-11, “According as He has chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love: having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He has made us accepted in the beloved. In Whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace; wherein He has abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He has purposed in Himself: that in the dispensation of the fullness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in Him: in Whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him Who works all things after the counsel of His own will”.

Revelation 13:8, “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him [Satan] whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” But that Life could not, and would not, be shared in any other way than through the way of “God manifest in the flesh.” This was a part of His eternal and predestinated purpose. This plan was to be to the praise of the glory of His grace. It was the plan of Redemption. It was the plan of Salvation. “God being a Saviour, it was necessary that He predestinate a man who would require salvation in order to give Himself reason and purpose of being.” That is one hundred percent correct and multitudes of Scripture bear it out as does the very pointed verse of Romans 11:36, “For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are ALL THINGS: to Whom be GLORY for ever. Amen.” Man could not directly come and partake of that Tree of Life in the midst of the garden. That Eternal Life of the Tree had to become flesh first. But before God could raise and save a sinner, He had to have a sinner to raise and save. Man had to fall. The fall which would be caused by Satan, had to have flesh to make fall. Satan had to come through flesh also. But Satan could not come through human flesh to make the fall as would Christ come in human flesh to restore the fallen. . . And when Satan had brought about that which was necessary to the purpose of God, then man could not get to the Tree of Life in the garden. Certainly not. It wasn’t time. But an animal was taken and his blood shed (animal had caused the fall had it not? let animal life be shed) and then God had communion with man again (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 98:1-2; 102:2).

God’s wisdom is a “tree of Life” whereas sophistry and intellectual reasoning is the mark of the beast, of Cain and his vicarious father, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, “because the carnal mind is enmity against God” (I John 3:12; 2:13-14; Proverbs 3:18; Genesis 3:15; 4:15; Matthew 11:25; Romans 8:7).

Back in Eden the Serpent was an upright creature so close to a human being he could reason and talk, yet without a soul he was pure animal. Satan took advantage of his physical characteristics to beguile and seduce Eve. Then He destroyed that pattern of the serpent, and no other beast can commingle with man. But the affinity is there. Genesis 3:14-15, “The Lord God said to the Serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all [other] domestic and wild animals; you will crawl on your belly and eat dust all the days of your life: and I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel”.

Lucifer was the “illuminator,” or “light-bringer,” a kind of John the Baptist sent to lead man to the Logos and Kingdom of Michael, who is Christ, but overcome by his own beauty and wisdom (which he and his children employ without scruple, deceiving by the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life), and envious of the One who should reign, he devised a means whereby he might usurp the Kingdom of eternal Life by establishing a kingdom of death and perpetual life through natural procreation. This would be accomplished by adding to and taking from God’s Word which is Spirit and eternal Life in a form we can receive by faith so that instead of Life it would bring death.

Thus God placed enmity between the physical seed of the Serpent in Cain and his accursed race who are absent from the Book of Life, which is the genealogy of the first Adam, and Adam’s lineage. The physical Serpent’s seed are therefore irredeemable since they are not part of God’s creation but a hybrid. Besides, Jesus Christ is the last Adam, He is not the last Cain who is without a kinsman Redeemer. There is also spiritual Serpent’s seed, which in addition to those who are related to Cain by genealogy include Adam’s children who have hybrid God’s unchanging Word with Satan’s wisdom such that it is no longer His Life-giving Spirit but carnal reasoning against THUS SAITH THE LORD, and Death.

From the garden of Eden, the seed of the Serpent has persecuted the seed of the woman both natural and Spiritual, as Jesus condemned them to their face in Matthew 23:33-35 and John 8:40-44 (where they accused Him of being Serpent’s seed). He warned of “Great tribulation [upon the Church throughout the Gentile dispensation commencing with the siege of Jerusalem] such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days should are shortened, there should no flesh be saved [for the rapture]: but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened” (Matthew 24:6; 15-28; Revelation 7:14; 20:4). When we reviewed the Second Seal we saw how hundreds of millions of nominal Christians have been killed by design just in the last century.

The days are being shortened by the “midnight cry” of Matthew 25:6 which is the “shout” of Brother Branham’s Message (I Thessalonians 4:14-16) confirmed by the heavenly “Voice” (of Revelation 18:4) calling the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her harlot daughters to maturity “in the unity of the faith” (Ephesians 4:13), for “the manifestation of the Sons of God” (Romans 8:19) and the translation (I Corinthians 15:46-57).

Throughout the Gentile dispensation Christ has been building His Kingdom by incarnating Himself in whomsoever will give Him the preeminence in their life. His will is His revealed Word. He has placed each one of us on the same basis as Adam and Eve in the beginning, that is, free moral agency that our relationship might be through mutual love, not compulsion. God is incarnating Himself in the soul of His Bride by three stages of grace:

  1. Justification by grace through faith, followed by water baptism in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  2. Sanctification of the spirit of our mind.
  3. Baptism with the Holy Spirit, which is the new birth.

Satan is building his kingdom by enslaving earth-bound men to the desires of their flesh and mortal spirit, which must perish. His subjects are free to sin but otherwise bound to servitude by totalitarian force. As we have seen, Satan has insinuated Himself from the spirit of antichrist in the First Seal, to the false prophet or pope under the Second Seal, and when he is cast down to earth at the close of the Fourth Seal he will incarnate the false prophet as he incarnate Judas Iscariot (John 13:27), after which he will be known as the beast.

Genesis 4:13-16, “Cain said to the Lord, My punishment is greater than I can bear. Behold, You have driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from Your face I will be hid; and I will be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one who finds me shall slay me. And the Lord said, Therefore whosoever slays Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him. And Cain went out from the Presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden [which was in Egypt, so he must have begun his eastward wandering in Canaan]”.

When in mortal dread Abel reluctantly informed Cain that Adam was not his father (Genesis 4:8) Cain resolved to continue the deception and callously and murdered his half-brother. This manifest the nature of his vicarious father Satan, and His utter defiance of God when confronted by the Almighty in Genesis 4:5, 9, 13-14, show him to be absolutely unhuman in characteristics, seeming even to surpass any account we have in Scripture concerning a confrontation of Satan by God. He was a farmer, and the Lord cursed the fertility of the soil, making him a fugitive and a vagabond on the earth. His descendants became international citizens or wanderers, city-dwellers who demean agrarian pursuits. Playing the part of a victim rather than the villain he is, Cain became a perpetual winger, like his children who have no land or inheritance in this world nor place in the world to come (Genesis 10:15-19; 12:6-7). For nefarious reasons this flawed trait is projected upon native peoples; and developed nations which once were self-reliant and resilient, being weakened through socialism, constant psychological manipulation through the alien-controlled “power of the air,” and by the commercial medicalization of complaints externalizing solutions that are within, now see themselves as vulnerable.

Once man lived almost a thousand years, then a life span was reduced to a hundred and twenty, and now to three score years and ten. Each generation is becoming weaker physically and morally but technologically more worldly-wise through its acquaintance with the Tree of Knowledge (Daniel 12:4). Brother Branham said, “When Christ died at Calvary, every sin that was ever committed or ever would be committed was forgiven right there on the basis of the shed Blood. But it’ll never do you no good till you accept it. Got to be your personal property, and that’s your personal faith in a finished work that Christ has already done for you.

So salvation isn’t doing a lot of good works. Grace is what brings us to God. God saves us by grace. And no man never sought God at any time. The Bible says he didn’t. You say, “Why, I sought God all night.” No, you never. God sought you. Man’s very nature in the garden of Eden proved it. Instead of Adam running up and down the garden saying, “O Father, where art thou,” it was God hunting Adam saying, “Adam, where art thou?” See? We turn the picture around. Here, this will settle it for you if there’s a question in your mind. Jesus said, “No man can come to Me, except My Father draws him first.” That settles it if He said it. All right.

We’re not on that subject, we’re just backgrounding a little. Get the fear away. Don’t be scared that God’s not going to answer prayer. God always answers prayer. The work’s already finished. He’s obligated; He must do it; He’s got to do it to keep His Word. Notice. Now, it’s a finished work.

And now, if you’re dealing with sin. . . Now, maybe you never sinned, but there might be a sin that your father did, your grandfather did. He said He’d visit the iniquity of the parents upon the third and fourth generation. And each generation gets weaker and wiser as the Bible said. But it’s all started from sin. Before sin ever came into the world there were no sickness in the world. And sickness came through the fall, and the fall was sin, and sin is unbelief.

“He that believeth not is condemned already.” Before you even get started you’re condemned. You’re born in sin, shaped in iniquity, come to the world speaking lies. No matter how much you was dedicated on the altar, how many times you were sprinkled, baptized, poured, whatever it is, you’re still a sinner, that’s all, until you repent and God recognizes and seals that promise with the Holy Spirit. That’s right. Then you’re borned again. Then you’re son and daughter of God. It’s a regeneration, a new creation. Then your attributes, your thoughts are not like they were, your life is not like it was. You become a complete surrendered vessel to God, and He speaks and uses you, and you’re not your own no more. But you’re bought with a price. That’s the price of the precious Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Think of it” (Hear Ye Him, #56-1215).

“And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding Him should kill him.” The mark of Cain is ruthless mental dexterity, the mark of his vicarious father, the Tree of Knowing Good and Evil, for whom the ends justify the means. God is not known by letters and intellectual prowess but by the simplicity of faith in “ignorant and unlearned men.” The high priests and elders of Jesus’ day were born in a certain lineage and trained in the letter of Scripture, but these sincere sanctified, dedicated theologians killed the Lord of glory because they loved God, and believed they were doing Him a service. Today denominational men learned in the original tongues and man-made interpretations of the letter but devoid of faith “crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and expose Him to an open shame” (Hebrews 6:6).

With rat cunning Cain’s most zealous physical offspring impersonate the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob then lest men should recognize and slay them, raise the Divine threat of Genesis 12:3, and the deceived non-elect declared them sacrosanct. By the same perverse wisdom they impersonate Christ’s church as foretold in Daniel 2; 7 – 9; 11 – 12; II Timothy 3 – 4; Jude 4; Revelation 2; 13, and 17 – 19. Their high priest impersonates the Holy Spirit by claiming to be God’s representative on earth in the absence of Jesus Christ, “enthroned in the temple of God as if he is God,” receiving veneration from kings and potentates. At the close of the Fourth Seal, Satan will be cast down to earth to incarnate “that man of sin, the son of perdition” (II Thessalonians 4:3-4; Revelation 12:7-10).

People envision Satan as a monster with hooves and horns, sharp teeth and rough manners. On the contrary, he is the learned theologian who confronted Jesus with Scripture (Matthew 4:1-11). Were you to meet him in the flesh, you would encounter a charming gentleman, a holy man who would converse as a dear friend. When Jesus engaged with the prostitute at Jacob’s well He revealed her sins; instantly she saw He was the Messiah, “for the Word is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). By this sign God identified Himself to Abraham, veiled behind the flesh of a created Man before the destruction of Sodom in Genesis 18, and revealed “Jesus Christ, the same, yesterday, and today and forever” veiled behind the flesh of the Prophet William Branham, a sinner-saved by grace (Hebrews 13:8; Luke 17:28-30).

“Faith comes by hearing and understanding the revealed Word of God” (Romans 10:17). Outwardly the prostitute was a sinner but in her heart was an elect soul. Jesus is redeeming souls; our bodies cannot receive faith and must return to the dust. Outwardly He could not lay a finger on the priests and theologians of His day who were sincere, sanctified men of prayer, but they were sincerely wrong so that inwardly their souls were black with sin, which is unbelief in the revealed Word of God, so when Jesus revealed Himself by the same sign they called Him “Beelzebub,” the chief of demons.

Christ’s Bride of all Ages is Spiritually redeemed, or born-again under the first Four Seals of Revelation 6:1-8. Physically we are redeemed under the Seventh Seal, which commenced with Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming through the mouth of His Prophet William Branham in 1963: the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form (I Corinthians 13:10; I Thessalonians 4:14-16; Revelation 10:1-7). “The folly of those who are ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth (i.e. Christ the Word) but resist the Truth; men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith, is made manifest to all the saints” (II Timothy 3:7-9). From the Greek they know Christ’s second Coming is a ‘parousia’ and not His physical ‘erchomai’ return, but they failed to see that without a prophet there can be no ‘parousia’ of Christ or of Satan yet their leaders have “presumed” to take the place of the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 18:20; Amos 3:7).

The “times of the Gentiles” commenced with Nebuchadnezzar’s conquest and captivity of the apostate Judeans; his forced worship of the image of a holy man, Daniel the prophet, and a Message from the Lord written on the palace wall in unknown tongues marked the destruction of the superpower of the first Gentile world empire of Babylon, the head of gold, in drunken revelry. This Age is going out the same way. Like the Judeans, the so-called Christian church is apostate and her congregations are souls imprisoned now, enslaved by Babylon the Great, the mother of (once) Protestant harlot daughters and abominations of the earth, and know it not (Revelation 17:5; 3:17-20).

“As she has glorified herself and lived wantonly, repay a like measure of torment and grief: since she says in her heart, I sit as a queen, I am no widow, and will never see sorrow. Therefore in one day her plagues will be upon her, pestilence, mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for mighty is the Lord God who judges her” (Revelation 18:7-8; 2:21-23).

The once Christian world has abandoned the Word of God as those nations have abandoned their laws and constitutions (Proverbs 22:28). Through multiculturalism, which is a euphemism for miscegenation and accursed of God (Genesis 1:11; 3:15; 4:14; 9:1-4; 9:25; Deuteronomy 7:1-3; Daniel 2:43), we have mingled our blood with the children of Cain which is a repetition of the original sin and genocide to Adam’s race. Christians should be a separated people, but our nations and worldly churches are revel-rousing like the sinners at Belshazzar’s feast. The abundance of tongues in this day is further proof that the Gentile dispensation is almost over. Very soon God will take His children Home and return to Israel.

We live in the end of the fourth Gentile world empire which will rule to the consummation when it shall be broken in pieces by the Word of God. Shortly after the close of the Gentile dispensation and the Homecoming of Christ’s Bride, the US superpower of iron, crippled by the earthquake of Revelation 6:12; 11:19, and 16:18-19, will be invaded by the Russian superpower of clay. Uniting a federation of religions the pope will restore peace and be acclaimed president of Lucifer’s totalitarian one world government whereon he will confirm a covenant with the Jewish banksters, refinance the US dollar with gold backing and thereby control all people and rule their nations (Daniel 7:23-25; 8:25; 9:27; Revelation 13:1-18; 17:8-17). Thereafter, the United States, which is image of Imperial Rome, and the Protestant church, which is the image of Papal Rome, will force the worship of that ‘holy’ man, the Devil-incarnate pope (Revelation 13:11-18).

Soon the Fourth and Fifth Seals will be fulfilled and the Sixth Seal will manifest. Brother Branham said, “I believe, one of these glorious days, when this united confederation of church goes together, and the new pope is brought out of the United States and put over there according to prophecy, then they’ll form an image like unto the beast. And I tell you, the true Church of God will be drove together. The real, true believers out of Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Nazarene, Pilgrim Holiness, whatever they’ll be, will go together and cemented by the love of God, that’ll make the Body of the Lord Jesus Christ, all the believers. And agnostics and shallow-minded will be cast to one side; they’ll go right on into the confederation of churches” (Acts of the Holy Spirit, p. 12:87).

Last week I received the following commentary by Catholic priest Peter Scott. This is important and should be read in full and in conjunction with the papal encyclical. Peter Scott’s astute eye has detected Benedict’s rhetorical sleight of hand; if he can remove his purple-tinted spectacles and look through the eyes of Melchisedec he will see the end of the Gentile dispensation is imminent. Daniel 9:27 is about to be fulfilled wherein “The prince of Rome will confirm a covenant for one week [of seven years, being the time of Jacob’s trouble, or the tribulation of Daniel’s Seventieth week (Jeremiah 30:7)] with the so-called Jews: and in the midst of the week [after the Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 have “finished their testimony”] he will cause the sacrifice and the oblation [which the self-styled Jews and apostate Israelites will restore in a new temple] to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations [Judaeo-Roman Catholicism] he will utterly defile the sanctuary (Isaiah 14:13; Daniel 8:11, 23-27; 11:31-45; 12:6-13; Revelation 11:7-13; 12:13-17; 13:1-8; 15-18), even until the consummation (Isaiah 10:23; 28:22), and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate”—those without Christ in this world and no place in the world to come (Revelation 17:8; 19:11 – 20:6).

The Humanist Manifesto and Benedict XVI’s Encyclical, Caritas in Veritate

July 23, 2010 — By their Communist Manifesto of 1848, Marx and Engels launched the modern socialist movement that drew the logical conclusion from the principles of the French Revolution and declared that ‘the private ownership of productive property is regarded as invalid and immoral, while ownership of consumers’ property is allowed’ (E. Cahill, S.J., The Framework of a Christian State, p. 158). It would seem preposterous to draw a parallel between this atheistic document, cause of revolution, wars, murders, and sufferings without number, and the third encyclical of Pope Benedict XVI, Caritas in veritate, dated June 29, 2009. Yet an examination of the text demonstrates that it truly is a manifesto of humanism, drawing to their logical conclusion the principles of the French Revolution, rejecting all exclusive and private ownership of the Truth, by Catholics as by others, allowing it simply to be shared and communicated, that is consumed by all in equal fraternity and liberty.

As Catholics, how could we not be outraged by such a comparison? After all, what seems more Catholic than the title ‘Charity in the truth,’ which is clearly modified from the expression used by St. Paul, ‘that henceforth we be no more children tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine by the wickedness of men, by cunning craftiness, by which they lie in wait to deceive, but doing the truth in charity’ (Eph 4:14,15: note, however, the transformation)? What is more reassuring than the constant reminder that charity and the truth cannot be separated, for ‘truth needs to be sought, found and expressed within the ‘economy‘ of charity, but charity in its turn needs to be understood, confirmed, and practiced in the light of truth’ (§2)? What is more elevated than a new view of the social question that goes above and beyond the simple question of ‘justice’ and ‘rights’ mentioned by pre-conciliar Popes, for ‘charity is at the heart of the Church’s social doctrine’ (§2)? What is more consoling than the affirmation that ‘it is not a case of two typologies of social doctrine, one pre-conciliar and one post-conciliar, differing from one another: on the contrary there is a single teaching. . .’ (§12)! What is more necessary than the reminder that man needs God: ‘because integral human development—requires a transcendent vision of the person, it needs God’ (§11).

Yet the similarity with Catholic teaching goes no further than the words used, words whose meaning is radically changed. The first inkling of this is contained in the very title. The encyclical is not addressed uniquely to Catholics, but also to ‘all people of good will.’ The understanding and acceptance of this document is not something that requires the Catholic Faith. This is also clearly apparent from the introduction, which does not pretend to outline the principles of a Catholic social order, but rather the principle for ‘integral human development’ for all men, which is charity. There is, from the very beginning of this encyclical, a new concept of charity, which ‘is the principal driving force behind the authentic development of every person and of all humanity’ (§1)! Clearly the Pope cannot be speaking of the supernatural and infused virtue of charity, for that would be to affirm that every man is in the state of sanctifying grace and that no man is in mortal sin! . .
The novelty of this encyclical and its principal practical focus is without a doubt globalization, defined as ‘the explosion of worldwide interdependence’ (§33). In itself, the Pope describes this phenomenon as ‘neither good nor bad’ (§42). However, he encourages us to view it not just as a predetermined economic process, but rather to see it in a positive sense: ‘We should not be its victims, but rather its protagonists’. . .

The most shocking and long-reaching conclusion of this positive promotion of globalization on a human and cultural as well as economic level is the call for an international authority to impose it legally, to enforce in an obligatory manner the dialogue between economies, cultures, religions, and peoples as promoted by this integral humanism. The Pope in fact calls ‘for a reform of the United Nations Organization, and likewise of economic institutions and international finance, so that the concept of the family of nations can acquire real teeth, . . . to arrive at a political, juridical, and economic order which can increase and give direction to international cooperation for the development of all people in solidarity’ there is urgent need of a true world political authority (which) would need to be vested with the effective power to ensure security for all. . .’ (§ 67). This means the loss of national sovereignty and any possibility of union between Church and State. It means the establishment of the one world order that Freemasonry has long fought to achieve. . .

four horses of the ApocalypseRome has ruled the world since the break-up of Alexander’s empire, and Rome will rule to the consummation. Not having the Holy Spirit the good priest does not understand that the rider of the four horses of the Apocalypse is Satan incarnating himself into his kingdom in four stages. As the antichrist spirit he rode in conquest through the Ephesian, Smyrnean and Pergamean Church Ages on a white horse as if he were Christ. But “we are more than conquerors through Christ who loved us . . . thanks be to God, who gives us the victory”  (Romans 8:37; I Corinthians 15:57). By “the deeds of the nicolaitanes” Satan set up a clerical hierarchy through which he overrules the laity. The “deeds” were made “doctrine,” and in the manner of Balaam, substituted for God’s Word at the First Nicea Council where the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church organized. Having amassed spiritual power, he created the unscriptural office of pope. The false prophet received a crown and went forth on his red horse with a great sword to take peace from the earth and to kill all who refused his mark of the beast, which is the trinity doctrine. With church and state united and wearing a triple crown signifying dominion over heaven, earth and purgatory he killed all opposition, resulting in almost a millennium of Dark Ages in the Thyatira Church Age in which God likened Rome to Jezebel, “teaching ministers to commit idolatry and partake her pagan dogma”.

redemption under the first four SealsIn the Sardis and Philadelphia Church Ages Satan rode his black horse hindering the Protestant Reformation of the Roman Catholic system of false worship and the worldwide missionary outreach under the Third Seal. By demonic activity the self-styled Jews abused Martin Luther’s kind trust and sent the antinominian Jew, John Calvin, to infiltrate the Protestant movement and turn grace to dis-grace. Satan instituted the Jesuits and established many cults including the Rosicrucians, modern Freemasonry, the Illuminati, Theosophical Society, Seventh Day Adventists and their offshoot the Jehovah’s Witnesses (so-called), Christian Science (so-called) and the Mormons.

In Scripture a beast symbolises a power, and in 1906 Satan changed from his black horse to a sickly green-coloured horse encompassing all of the evil attributes of the previous horses, for after the Laodicean Church Age and this antitype of the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of Israel’s Pentecostal Feast, he will be cast down to earth to incarnate the pope, “that man of sin,” thereafter called “the beast,” and ride to perdition with his followers. When the Lord began calling the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her (once) Protestant harlot daughters by the revelation of the Seven Seals, the pale horse rider was “gathering the denominational thorns and briers whose end is to be burned,” uniting the churches into the Charismatic movement and ecumenism of Vatican II with all religions under Rome, for the false vine has her revival first (Matthew 13:30; Hebrews 6:8).

Christ will take His Bride Home before the tribulation of Daniel’s Seventieth Week, and all who remain and refuse to worship or serve the beast will be martyred.

In his encyclical, Caritas in veritate, Pope Benedict XVI shows that the Roman Catholic church of this day is preparing to rule Lucifer’s totalitarian one world government. “[Our] ‘leaders’ are all fine actors, and certainly not true rulers . . . This is true not only in the world of politics but is equally true of banking, industry, academia, and religion” (L. Fletcher Prouty, JFK: The CIA, Vietnam, and the Plot to Assassinate John F. Kennedy).”So you see, my dear Conningsby, the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.” . . . “Governments do not govern, but merely control the machinery of government, being themselves controlled by the hidden hand” (Benjamin Disraeli, Conningsby). nl642.htm

Obama moves away from ‘Freedom of Religion’ toward ‘Freedom of Worship’?

July 19, 2010 — Since the initially strong language on religious freedom used in President Obama’s Cairo speech, presidential references to religious freedom have become rare, often replaced, at most, with references to freedom of worship. A purposeful change in language could mean a much narrower view of the right to religious freedom. Does this change of language indicate a change of policy?

Language matters when it comes to defining freedoms and limits. A shift from freedom of religion to freedom of worship moves the dialog from the world stage into the physical confines of a church, temple, synagogue or mosque. Such limitations can unleash an unbridled initiative that we have only experienced in a mild way through actions determined to remove of roadside crosses, wearing of religious T-shirts and pro-life pins as well as any initiatives of evangelization. It also could exclude our right to raise our children in our faith, the right to religious education, literature or media, the right to raise funds or organize charitable activities and the right to express religious beliefs in the normal discourse of life. . .

Berg seeks Special Prosecutor to investigate Obama

July 16, 2010 — Former Pennsylvania Assistant Attorney General Philip Berg filed for a Petition for Rehearing En Banc under the False Claims Act of 1863 in the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. The filing is an appeal to Case 08-cv-01933RWR, stemming from Berg v Obama, 656 F.Supp. 2d 107 (D.D.C. 2009); order on June 9, 2009 dismissing Berg’s case and a September 21, 2009 Memorandum and Order denying Relator’s Motion for Reconsideration.

This Qui Tam case is based on the False Claims Act of 1863 (31 USC § 3729-3733 [generally referred to as the “Lincoln Law”] which allows people not affiliated with the government to file law suits against people who commit fraud against the government. Berg chose that filing because of the nature of the false claims which are affirmations by Barack Hussein Obama that he’s a citizen of the United States even though he cannot, or will not, produce evidence that he is—since Berg believes Obama knows he’s not. The basis of Berg’s lawsuit is that a fraud was perpetuated on the People of the United States by Obama when he ran for, was elected to, and fraudulently held, the office of US Senator from Illinois. Berg pleads for and demands the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate the allegations of election fraud against Obama. The special prosecutor’s job would be to determine whether or not grounds exist to prosecute the occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for fraudulently representing himself as a citizen of the United States and seeking and holding political offices he could neither constitutionally seek nor hold. . .

The Technological Revolution and the Future of Freedom – Part III

I John 5:7-8, “There are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, [Christ] the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are One. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one [live birth]”. Modern Pentecostals are the Laodiceans—materially rich and in need of nothing, but for all their exuberant joy and confusion of tongues they are Spiritually bankrupt, naked of the Blood, and blind to the apostolic faith, as prophesied by our Lord Jesus. Laodicea means “people’s rights,” or communism, and today at the end of the Gentile dispensation of grace, our world, overshadowed and oppressed by the spirit of Laodicea, is on the cusp of the lawless age of Aquarius. Soon that lawless one, exposed to us through the revelation of the Seven Seals, will be revealed to the world, coming as Satan’s man with great power, pretended signs and lying wonders, deceiving those who are to perish under the strong delusion of revival and reformation of church and state (II Thessalonians 2:8-12).

The Pentecostal Message of the baptism with the Holy Spirit completed the reformation of the Roman Catholic system of false worship begun by justification by grace through faith in the Sardis Church Age and complimented by sanctification in the Philadelphian Church Age. So when the Message to Laodicea baptized the last member of the Body predestinated to be born-again of PART-Word, Christ’s mediation was fulfilled. And when the Laodiceans rejected “the Revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave Him [after His ascension] to show to His servants things which must shortly come to pass and which Jesus sent and signified by His angel [William Branham] to His servant John,” they put Christ outside the church(Revelation 1:1; 3:20).

A different measure of Spirit-quickened Word was allotted to each Church Age. So long as the Bible was sealed, Christ received the Word for the Age and interceded for the ignorant errors of His elect so that the Laodicean saints were justified, sanctified and baptized in the Holy Spirit. The Prophet explained, “You can be sanctified without being justified, and you can be justified without being sanctified. You can be sanctified without receiving the Holy Ghost. It’s exactly. The disciples in John 17:17 was sanctified and given power to cast out devils and still didn’t have the Holy Ghost. See? Sure. Had to go up to Pentecost and wait till the Holy Ghost come. That’s where Judas showed his colours. See how that spirit worked its way through justification and sanctification, but when it come to the end, he showed his colour. (See)? That’s right” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 251:9).

The Reformation ended before the revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963 so when Christ descended with the open Book He swore by Himself that there should be “time no longer” (Revelation 10:1-6): judgment would not be delayed by further intercession. Thus, despite their noble intentions, nothing will be accomplished by those seeking to impeach Marxist usurpers such as president Obama and Australia’s Prime Minister Gillard (against whom charges of treason have been brought), or pleading II Chronicles 7:14, because the Lord is about to smite the Earth with a curse by casting down Satan to incarnate “the [papal] lawless one, that man of sin, the son of perdition” (Malachi 4:6; II Thessalonians 2:3, 8; Revelation 12:7-13).

Because the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals the focus of ministry throughout the Church Ages was the justification of those predestined to be born-again of PART-Word through Christ’s mediation, so when the last Laodicean saint was born-again the first three chapters of Revelation and Christ’s mediatorial work were fulfilled. Redemption was over because His end-time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites are predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word, thus we were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary and do not require mediation. We are born of the unadulterated faith once delivered to the apostolic saints plus the mysteries of the Seven Thunders in Revelation 10, which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals, while Israel will be born-again through the revelation of their Seven Trumpet mysteries. Thus the focus of ministry today is redemption revealed—how Christ has redeemed His Bride in each Age, and who they are.

‘Judas showed his colours’ by not going up to Pentecost to receive the Holy Ghost; and in rejecting this end-time Message the world church system is “crucifying to themselves the Son of God afresh, and exposing Him to open shame” (Hebrews 6:6; Revelation 3:17-20). We are not living in the days of the Reformation of the Roman Catholic system of worship, but in the time of the restoration of “the faith once delivered to the apostolic saints” and the capping of the pyramid of the stature of the perfect Man with the perfect interpretation of the Word with Divine vindication (Jude 1:3; Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:1-11; Romans 8:19; Ephesians 4:13).

Like the apostate Hebrew denominations, the Gentile denominations by their traditions have made the Word of God of no effect to their congregations, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men (Matthew 15:1-9). This is why there are no denominational revivals, and why, as Brother Branham said when delivering the Third Seal, “The Bride hasn’t had a revival yet. See? There’s been no revival there, no manifestation of God to stir the Bride yet. See? We’re looking for it. It will take those seven unknown thunders back there to wake her up again. He will send it. He promised it” (ibid, p. 253:3). And about a decade later the revelation gradually began to open to the believers.

Brother Branham placed great emphasis on the simplicity of God in the second or ‘parousia’ Coming of the Lord “as a thief in the night” to waken the wise and foolish virgin and steal His Bride away to the Wedding Supper in the Air. He explained how this Coming, although universal, would be in such a simple manner that only an election would recognize it through believing and understanding (not believing and memorizing) the simple Message of the humble prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7. And that although he would be thoroughly vindicated by the same signs that identified Jesus as God’s Messiah, he would be rejected by denominational people whose absolute was their traditions and not God’s Holy Bible.

“Now, it didn’t say He’d secretly come, but the rapture will be a secret. So if that was so secret when He come [the first time], how much more will the rapture be unknown. See? Directly they’ll say, “Well, I thought we were supposed to have a rapture and all this judgment upon the earth.” He said, “It’s already taken place, and you didn’t know it” (ibid, p. 238:5).

Jesus chose seventy ministers and sent them forth in pairs “as lambs among wolves” to forerun His campaign. They returned rejoicing that even demons were subject to them in His Name, but when He shared the revelation of His Message they were unable to receive it, and like the Pentecostals, “walked with Him no more” (Luke 10:1-23; John 6:53-67). The ‘second pull’ of Brother Branham’s ministry was the Messianic sign of Hebrews 13:8, “discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart,” (Luke 17:28-30). This is how he described a breakfast meeting where he was invited to address the Greater Ministerial Association of Chicago:

“Look in Chicago, greater Chicago, when them three hundred preachers setting there. . . The Lord told me that night what they was going to do. They had a trap set for me. And I went and told Brother Carlson; I said, “You’ll not have it in that hotel. You’ll have to take it to another place, and it’d be a green room.

And I said, “They got a trap set for me. Why, Brother Carlson? Are you afraid to tell me why, you and Tommy Hicks?” They dropped their head. I said, “Tommy, why don’t you go speak?”

Said, “I couldn’t do it.”

I said, “I thought you said you’d do me a favor.” I said, “Last night the Lord told me, ‘You’re going down there today, and you find out you’re not going to get that building. You’re going to another building. Dr. Mead will be setting on this side, that colored man and his wife that sings will be setting right here and so forth, where they’ll all be setting. There’d be a Buddha priest there.” And I said, “Now, find out. They got it against me because I preach the water baptism in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. They got it against me because I preach the Serpent’s seed, and against the evidence that every man speaks with tongues has got the Holy Ghost and things.” I said, “Come down and watch God.”

Sometime that afternoon, they called up Brother Carlson and he said. The guy that let him have that and paid a down-payment on it said, “We have to cancel, because the manager said he’d already promised it to a band for that morning.”

And they couldn’t have it. So we went out to the Town and Country. And Brother Carlson said, “There’s one thing, you brethren might disagree with Brother Branham, but he’s not scared to say what he believes. He told me these things would happen just exactly the way they are. Now, here he is. Let him speak for hisself.”

I just took the Scripture, “I’m not disobedient to the heavenly vision,” as Paul said. I said, “You’ve got it in for me for water baptism in the Name of Jesus Christ. Better than three hundred of you introduced yourself as Doctor So-and-so and Doctor So-and-so.” I said, “I haven’t even got a grammar school education, but I challenge any man here to bring your Bible. That was the quietest crowd you ever heard. I said, “What’s the matter, if you can’t support it, then keep off of my back.” That’s right. A lot of howling when they’re around the corner, but come face to face with the issue it’s different. That’s right.

Them men went out. Tommy Hicks said, “I want three hundred of those tapes to send to every trinitarian preacher I know of.” Them men shaking my hands said, “We’ll come down to the Tabernacle and be baptized over.” Where they at? Excuses. “I can’t do it; my denomination won’t let me do it.” “I married a wife.” “I bought a yoke of ox, I bought a piece of ground; I got to go look at it.” See? Some of those things like. . . Excuses, is that right? Is that life worthy of the Gospel? If the Gospel’s right, let’s sell out everything we’ve got and live for it. Be a Christian. Yes, sir. Amen. Notice now as we close.

[Seventy ministers asked to be rebaptized in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and not one of them followed through on his commitment to Christ].

But their excuses is their creeds and their denominations. It’s like a tree. I was looking at Brother Banks the other day. I had a pine tree I planted when I first moved up there about, oh, about fifteen years ago or better. And I let the branches grow out on the pine tree, and we couldn’t get the mower back under there. And there wasn’t a sprig of grass anyhow. And I went out there and took a saw, and sawed them limbs off until that pine tree was way up here where you could walk under it with a mower; and the prettiest bunch of grass you ever seen is under it now. What was it? The seed was there. It had to get the light. See, see?

And as long as the denomination, your excuses, try to shadow that seed that you know actually lays there, you’re taking the part of Lot. Throw them things away and let the Gospel Light shine in upon there, the power of Jesus Christ. Yes. Keeping the Light off of it will keep it from living, for if the Light ever gets to it, it will spring forth to Life. That’s the reason the people say, “Don’t go to some of them kind of meetings.” They’re afraid some of the Light will strike one of their members” (Is Your Life Worthy of the Gospel, p. 47:232-239).

Revelation 6:5-6, “When the Lamb had opened the Third Seal, I heard the third living creature say, Come and see. And I looked and saw a black horse; and he who sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a Voice in the midst of the four living creatures say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see you hurt not the oil and the wine”.

God's Throne guardsThe third living creature guarding the way into the Presence by the baptism of the Holy Spirit was a cherub with the face of a man, which in the New Testament was Dr. Luke’s Gospel, and the Voice was the Holy Spirit, Christ, on the Throne. Man is the most intelligent of all creatures, and under the Third Seal God raised up godly men of supreme intelligence: great scholars and teachers full of the Holy Spirit who became the reformers of the Roman Catholic system of false worship following her violent and bloody excesses of the Dark Ages which were not completely put down until the mid-nineteenth century. Neither before nor since has the Lord raised such highly gifted Christian savants. Under this Seal, Lucifer added demonic power to the spiritual and political power he gained over mankind riding his white and red-coloured horses. The Third Seal covers the Sardis (1520-1750) and Philadelphia (1750-1906) Church Ages, the ministry of whose angels, Martin Luther and John Wesley turned Satan’s world upside down. Luther’s main Message smote Satan’s Roman church a mortal blow from which she has never recovered. He is best known for restoring the foundational doctrine of the Bible, “justification by grace through faith” alone, against Rome’s wicked dogma of “earning righteousness by works,” which is to make God man’s debtor. If human works can justify a man before the Lord, Christ died in vain. Hebrews 11:6, “Without faith it is impossible to please God: for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

the Body of ChristThe virtues manifest in the saints born under the Third Seal confirm Zechariah 4:6-7, that the Church of the Living God overcomes not by works of human might nor power but by grace through faith in God’s Spirit. Thus while Satan unleashed the demonic force of his Roman Catholic false church, which Jesus called “the synagogue of Satan,” the token of the Life of Christ in the elect of the Sardis Age (1520-1750) manifest in “patience.” In the Philadelphia Age (1750-1906), his demonic forces wrought a century of revolution throughout Europe and in the United States as weak rulers lost confidence in themselves and yielded to various demands from their rivals. Such compromises by rulers, or rapidly improving social conditions create a revolution of rising expectations, and if changes fail to keep pace with expectations, the people lose faith in their rulers and succumb to the allurements of revolutionary leaders.

The Industrial Revolution in the Philadelphian Church Age changed the basic nature of Western society from rural to cold and impersonal urban life, where most lived and worked under harsh conditions. The close relationships between employers, who felt some responsibility for their workers became impossible in the large factories. Most factory workers were desperately poor and illiterate, and migration from rural areas caused severe overcrowding in extremely unsanitary conditions that led to outbreaks of disease. Moral conditions deteriorated to ungodliness, encouraging theft, drunkenness, prostitution, infidelity, an explosion of illegitimate births, infanticide, and “rebellion, which is the sin of witchcraft” (I Samuel 15:23).

Mammon became god and in time the export of capital by the banksters of the ‘City of London’ to finance importers in other countries, mines and plantations, construction of railways and the export of locomotives and rolling stock, became far more important than the export of British manufactures, until today their demonic power of usury has overcome the governments in every nation; if not by the declining quality of character and leadership, then by bloody rebellion.

Although Sunday schools have existed since the 1500s, the present-day Sunday school movement started in Gloucester, England, by the publisher Robert Raikes when in 1780 he launched his “Ragged school.” He sought to aid the children of the poor in his community both Spiritually and socially by teaching them reading, writing, and inculcating Christian principles. The great missionary age of Philadelphia spread Sunday schools to all parts of the world.

In contrast to the conditions prevailing throughout the Philadelphian Church Age, the virtue of the saints of this Age was “godliness.” John Wesley’s Message added the revelation of Sanctification or Scriptural holiness to Luther’s Message of Justification. What a contrast to Roman Catholicism, which Jesus foresaw as a “woman arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: and upon her forehead was a Name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. [In contrast to Israel’s high priest who bore “HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD” on his forehead]. And the woman was drunken with the blood of the saints, even with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when John the Divine saw her, he was incredulous.”

During his lifetime Wesley could have acquired vast wealth; but he did not. His favorite saying on the subject of money was, “Get all you can, save all you can, and give all you can.” How strange it would be for Wesley to come back and see the denomination that bears the name of Methodist today. They are
rich—vastly rich. But the life and power of John Wesley is missing. Wesley never did desire to build a work upon a denominational or sectarian basis. Though he was an Armenian in his beliefs, he did not want to separate himself from brethren on the grounds of doctrine. He was a good candidate for James: He based his eternal life on faith and works, or the living of the life—for works is faith expressed—rather than simply accepting a creed or a doctrinal statement. John Wesley died at the age of 88 having served God as few men would dare to even think they might, and in his Age missionaries delivered the Gospel throughout the world.

To bring the Words of I Kings 18:21 into the context of the New Testament, “Elijah came to all the people, and said, How long will you limp between two opinions? if the Lord is God, follow him: but if the Baal, then follow the Roman Catholic church and her (once) Protestant harlot daughters.” See Matthew 25:1-13 and Revelation 18:1-4.

Having ridden through rivers of human blood, Satan changed to a black horse which signifies the Dark Ages in which he separated the people and kings from their wealth. Wheat and barley are the staff of natural life, whereas Jesus is the Bread of Spiritual Life through prayer and “the foolishness of preaching the whole counsel of God.” The Roman Catholic church was charging for prayer (mass), and Novenas. (A nine days’ private or public devotion in the Catholic Church to obtain special graces). The novena is permitted and even recommended by ecclesiastical authority, but still has no proper and fully set place in the liturgy of the Church. It has, however, more and more been prized and utilized by the faithful. Four kinds of novenas can be distinguished: novenas of mourning, of preparation, of prayer, and the indulgenced novenas (the extra-sacramental remission of the temporal punishment due, in God’s justice, to sin that has been forgiven, which remission is granted by the Church in the exercise of the power of the keys, through the application of the superabundant merits of Christ and of the saints, and for some just and reasonable motive), though this distinction is not exclusive). Now you know where to obtain release from the mythical purgatory for real money.

This is a Satanic money racket, for Jesus Christ “is the expiation for our sins; and not for ours only but for the sins of the whole world” (I John 2:2). But Roman Catholics, being unbelievers do not accept Him as “The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29; Isaiah 53:5), and pay their church which can neither forgive nor forget sins.

In 1517, a “Dominican monk, named John Diezel, or Tetzel, the son of a goldsmith of Leipsic” declared: “Indulgences avail not only for the living but for the dead.” Pope Boniface VIII had enacted this doctrine two centuries before; but, [Jewish] Pope Leo X [known as Leo the Khazar] was now using it and Tetzel to restore the empty coffers of the Vatican. And, Tetzel went on to make particular application of the dogma of indulgences. “Priest, noble, merchant, wife, youth, maiden, do you not hear your parents and your other friends who are dead, and who cry from the bottom of the abyss: ‘We are suffering horrible torments! A trifling alms would deliver us; you can give it, and you will not?'”

Tetzel then delivered these chilling words. “At the very instant that the money rattles at the bottom of the chest, the soul escapes from purgatory, and flies liberated to heaven. Now you can ransom so many souls, stiff-necked and thoughtless man; with twelve groats you can deliver your father from purgatory, and you are ungrateful enough not to save him! I shall be justified in the Day of Judgment; but you—you will be punished so much the more severely for having neglected so great salvation. I declare to you, though you have but a single coat, you ought to strip it off and sell it, in order to obtain this grace. . . The Lord our God no longer reigns, he has resigned all power to the Pope” (J.A. Wylie, History of Protestantism, Volume 1, Book 5, Chapter 8, p. 400-402).

II Peter 2:3, “Motivated by greed, they will exploit you with false words: from of old their condemnation has not been idle, and their destruction has not been asleep”.

These indulgences were sold by Tetzel in the form of a letter: “May our Lord Jesus Christ have pity on thee, N. N., and absolve thee by the merits of His most holy passion. And I, by virtue of the apostolic power which has been confided to me, do absolve thee from all ecclesiastical censures, judgments, and penalties which thou mayest have merited, and from all excesses, sins, and crimes which thou mayest have committed, however great or enormous they may be, and for whatsoever cause, even though they had been reserved to our most Holy Father the Pope and the Apostolic See. I efface all attainders of unfitness and all marks of infamy thou mayest have drawn on thee on this occasion; I remit the punishment thou shouldest have had to endure in purgatory; I make thee anew a participator in the Sacraments of the Church; I incorporate thee afresh in the communion of the saints; and I reinstate thee in the innocence and purity in which thou wast at the hour of thy baptism; so that, at the hour of thy death, the gate through which is the entrance to the place of torments and punishments shall be closed against thee, and that which leads to the Paradise of joy shall be open. And shouldest thou be spared long, this grace shall remain immutable to the time of thy last end. In the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. . . Brother John Tetzel, Commissioner, has signed it with his own hand” (ibid, p. 403-404).

At that time, Luther was a university professor, preacher, and confessor; since he still ignorantly held allegiance to the Church of Rome. “One day, as he sat in the confessional, some citizens of Wittemberg came before him, and confessed having committed thefts, adulteries, and other heinous sins. ‘You must abandon your evil courses,’ said Luther, ‘otherwise I cannot absolve you.’ To his surprise and grief, they replied that they had no thought of leaving off their sins; that this was not in the least necessary, inasmuch as these sins were already pardoned, and they themselves secured against the punishment of them. The deluded people would thereupon pull out the indulgence papers of Tetzel, and show them in testimony of their innocence. Luther could only tell them that these papers were worthless, that they must repent, and be forgiven of God, otherwise they should perish everlastingly” (ibid, Chapter 9, p. 408).

These dupes of Rome had actually purchased indulgences for uncommitted sins they lusted to commit in the future. Luther differed more widely with the Church of Rome than he was aware of. He wrote, “The Papacy is a general chase led by the Roman bishop to catch and destroy souls” (The Babylonish Captivity of the Church).

Oil typifies the Holy Spirit (Leviticus 8:12; Zechariah 4:12; Matthew 25:3-12), whereas wine symbolizes the stimulation of Spiritual revelation with joy and song and reverence as the fermented fruit of the vine excites the mortal spirit. If the stimulation is generated by true revelation, it must be THUS SAITH THE LORD according to the written Word from Genesis to Revelation. I have been in churches where the congregation spoke and sang in the Spirit, but rejected the revelation of water baptism when it was presented to them. I was told “The Word divides, while the spirit unites,” yet God’s Word is Spirit in a form we can receive by faith (Romans 10:14-17). In another church the congregation were so stimulated they were running round and around the aisles, yet the pastor was a felon and not in the faith. Other churches build doctrine by adding quote upon quote to justify polygamy and replacement rather than redemption of souls. Others actually divided the Seven Thunders, nominating seven ministers to evoke the seven virtues of II Peter 1:1-8. Still others look forward to the return of God’s prophet to preach a campaign of tent meetings, while one actually purchased an aeroplane and hired a pilot (since deceased) to fly the resurrected prophet around the world gathering the saints for a hardly secret rapture. Without exception these people were “stimulated” by “a zeal of God . . . but not according to knowledge” (Romans 10:2).

On the day of Pentecost God fulfilled Joel 2:28 by pouring out His Spirit upon those in the upper room, and subsequently upon thousands who gathered to hear the new-born saints (Acts 2). This was the vindication of Isaiah 28:11-12, “With stammering lips and another tongue will God speak to this people, to whom He said, This is the rest you shall give to the weary, and this is the refreshing. Yet they would not listen.” This is confirmed in Acts 3:19, “Repent therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the Presence of the Lord”.

Isaiah was prophesying the Place of God’s rest,” which is in Christ (Isaiah 66:1). “This is the rest [or true sabbath] and this is the refreshing with stammering lips and another tongue”—not a drunken surfeit of the grape, or glossalalia—but the “former rain” regenerating and refreshing the soul with an outpouring of the “new wine”
of His Spirit. The Bible does not imply that on the day of Pentecost the new-born saints spoke to the assembled multitude in unknown tongues. They spoke in their native Galilean and “every man heard them speak in his own language” (Acts 2:6).

A sister wrote after her pastor “preached on the Holy Spirit and said many good things. I still have a question about what Brother Branham called the “true Baptism of the Holy Spirit” So many people profess it in several different ways. Some think you need to speak in tongues, others say you need to “feel” something, others say you only believe this Message of truth, but I see no real manifesting of what Jesus Christ did no matter what others say”.

Brother Branham said, One of the mysteries that the angel to the Seventh Church Age is supposed to wind up is “The mystery of the baptism of the Holy Ghost
without sensation, but the Person of Christ performing in you the same works that He did” (Is This the Sign of the End-Time Sir, p. 32:1). And whenever he used the expression, “the true Baptism of the Holy Spirit,” He pointed to our coming under preeminence to the revealed Word of God. This was how the Reformers were correcting the Church under the Third Seal.

Jesus said, “This is the work of God, that you believe on Him whom He has sent” (John 6:29). And in Brother Branham’s Message, Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed, to which every one of his sermons point, he explained God’s threefold purpose is:

  1. to express the fullness of Himself bodily in Jesus Christ
  2. to have the preeminence by Jesus Christ in His Body of believers
  3. to restore that which was lost to Eden.

The evidence of the true baptism with the Holy Spirit, which is the new birth, is that by your clear revelation of the Message of the angel to your dispensation your life becomes an epistle of his Message, known and read by all men. The Message of this day will not reflect the PART-Word Message of any of the seven Church Age Messengers—Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley, or William Branham, but the Angel of the Lord, Jesus Christ, the fullness of the Word whom Brother Branham introduced (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7).

The Body of Christ is Spiritually redeemed or born-again under the first Four Seals of the Book of Revelation, and physically redeemed under the Seventh Seal. Concerning the Third Seal, Jesus said, “nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places” (Matthew 24:7). And between 1520 and 1906 there were scores of wars and revolutions as you may see in this list or wars. Major famines over this time killed tens of millions of Chinese and Indians, and about 750,000 potato-eating Irish. Influenza, cholera, typhus, dysentery, tuberculosis, scurvy, small pox and bubonic plague were common in England and Europe under the Third Seal. The 1,390,000 lives lost in major earthquakes over this period are not many more than the death toll in one or two years today in the latter end of the Fourth Seal. nl641.htm

Solar Eclipse complete – Earthquakes will follow

July 12, 2010 — Earth Changes researcher Mitch Battros claims the slow release of oil from under the continental shelf [in the Gulf of Mexico] must accelerate the threatened earthquakes at the Andreas Fault and in the Yellowstone National Park calderon. “I predict increased earthquake and volcanic activity to occur over the next 14 days. The events I am speaking of will be large to mega events causing high fatalities and significant damage. I would suggest the areas of most interest would be Bay of Bengal, Baja California, Mexico, Puerto Rico Region, Japan Region, and Mediterranean Region.”

“History shows at almost all full solar eclipse events, large earth changing events occur within 14 days prior to, and 14 days after the eclipse. Although last night’s 6.2 earthquake which hit Chile could be considered large and significant; it is not the one I am predicting for this current 14-day window. The one expected [following the July 11, 2010] Total Solar Eclipse will be a magnitude 7.0 or larger. . .” Full story: Earth Changes Media (available only to subscribers).


Southern California Faults feeling Pressure

July 10, 2010 — Seismologists are increasingly concerned that the 7.2 Mexicali temblor on April 4 placed more pressure on faults around the Southland, resulting in increased quake activity over the last three months. . . “The probability of a larger earthquake on those faults could be high within the next year or two,” said John Rundle, a professor of physics and geology at UC Davis.

Rundle said the aftermath of the Mexicali quake is turning out to be significantly different from the aftermath of the two other large temblors to hit Southern California in the last two decades. Both the 7.3 Landers quake in 1992 and the 7.1 Hector Mine quake in 1999 in the Mojave Desert resulted in aftershocks that dissipated relatively quickly. By contrast, the Mexicali quake has been followed by aftershocks and “triggered earthquakes” that are showing no signs of ending. . . Full story: latimes.com

Central Banks dumping Gold at a Torrid Pace

July 7, 2010 — Central banks are pawning their gold to the Bank for International Settlements at a record rate, taking advantage of the precious metal’s historically high value to raise cash.

A little-noticed data point at the back of a 216-page report released last week by the BIS shows the international agency has taken 349 metric tons of gold since December—allowing central banks to raise a record $14 billion.

The number surprised the market, which had assumed most central banks had retained their holdings of gold. Instead, the BIS data show that they have been entering these gold swaps—exchanging their gold with the BIS in return for cash, agreeing to repurchase the gold at a later date. Full story: wsj.com

Comment: As the article notes, this has been going on for awhile, and these transactions don’t directly impact the open gold market, as it’s not as though this is gold just flooding the market. . . The bottom line is that central banks still want flexibility, even if that means potentially-debased “paper” currencies.

The BIS is Rothschild-controlled. Rothschilds are banksters to the Vatican. When the US dollar fails and gold skyrockets in value this activity will bankrupt the (Rothschild-controlled) central banks and the nations they pretend to serve.

Brother Branham said, “The church system of the Roman Catholic and the Protestant in coming together will control the whole wealth of the world system and force the whole earth into its religious trap, or will kill them, by refusing them the privilege of buying and selling whereby they would make a living [Revelation 13:15-18]. This will be accomplished simply, for the harlot’s daughters are all but gone back to her. In the meantime, Rome has acquired nearly all the supplies of gold. The Jews have the bonds and all the paper. At the right time, the harlot will destroy the present day money system by calling in all the paper and demanding gold. With no gold, the system falls. The Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance, and the harlot church will take over the whole world”.


The Global Oil Scam: 50 Times Bigger than Madoff

November 11, 2009 — Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS), BP (BP), Total (TOT), Shell (RDS.A), Deutsche Bank (DB) and Societe Generale (SCGLY.PK) founded
the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) in 2000. ICE is an online commodities and futures marketplace. It is outside the US and operates free from the constraints of US laws. The exchange was set up to facilitate “dark pool” trading in the commodities markets. Billions of dollars are being placed on oil futures contracts at the ICE and the beauty of this scam is that they NEVER take delivery, per se. They just ratchet up the price with leveraged speculation using your TARP money. This year alone they ratcheted up the global cost of oil from $40 to $80 per barrel.

A Congressional investigation into energy trading in 2003 discovered that ICE was being used to facilitate “round-trip” trades. “Round-trip” trades occur when one firm sells energy to another and then the second firm simultaneously sells the same amount of energy back to the first company at exactly the same price. No commodity ever changes hands. But when done on an exchange, these transactions send a price signal to the market and they artificially boost revenue for the company. This is nothing more than a massive fraud, pure and simple.

This is how the geniuses on Wall Street earn their big bonuses—they steal it. . . “It appears clear that BP and Goldman Sachs have been working collaboratively—at least at a strategic level—for maybe 15 years now. Their trading strategy has evolved over time as the global market has . . . become ever more financialised. . .” Full story: seekingalpha.com

The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine

Ilan Pappé, Israeli historian and professor of political science at Haifa University wrote: On a cold Wednesday afternoon, 10 March 1948, a group of eleven men, veteran Zionist leaders together with young military Jewish officers, put the final touches on a plan for the ethnic cleansing of Palestine (1). That same evening, military orders were dispatched to units on the ground to prepare for the systematic expulsion of Palestinians from vast areas of the country (2). The orders came with a detailed description of the methods to be used to forcibly evict the people: large-scale intimidation; laying siege to and bombarding villages and population centers; setting fire to homes, properties, and goods; expelling residents; demolishing homes; and, finally, planting mines in the rubble to prevent the expelled inhabitants from returning. Each unit was issued its own list of villages and neighborhoods to target in keeping with the master plan. Code-named Plan D (Dalet in Hebrew), this was the fourth and final version of vaguer plans outlining the fate that was in store for the native population of Palestine (3). The previous three plans had articulated only obscurely how the Zionist leadership intended to deal with the presence of so many Palestinians on the land the Jewish national movement wanted for itself. This fourth and last blueprint spelled it out clearly and unambiguously: the Palestinians had to go. . .

International Conference on Gaza: Breaking the Siege

July 11, 2010 — We are dealing with a carefully planned military operation. The Israeli Navy Commando which attacked the Marvi Marmara on May 31st had prior knowledge of who was on the Turkish ship including where passengers were residing in terms of cabin layout. According to Swedish author Henning Mankell, who was on board the Marvi Marmara, “the Israeli forces attacked sleeping civilians.” Specific individuals were targeted. . . “We were witnesses to premeditated murders. . .” The killing of civilians is intended to trigger a response by Palestinian resistance forces, which in turn justifies Israeli retaliation (on “humanitarian” grounds) as well as a process of military escalation. . . There are indications that the US was consulted at the highest levels regarding the nature of the military operation directed against the flotilla. Moreover, in the wake of the attacks, both the US and the UK unequivocally reaffirmed their support to Israel.

The actions of Israel against the Freedom Flotilla have important ramifications. Israel’s criminal actions in international waters have contributed to weakening the US-NATO-Israel military alliance. . . It should be understood that Israel and Turkey are partners and major actors in the US-NATO planned aerial attacks on Iran, which have been in the pipeline since mid-2005. The rift between Turkey and Israel has a direct bearing on NATO as a military alliance. Turkey is one of the more powerful NATO member states with regard to its conventional forces. The rift with Israel breaks a consensus within the Atlantic Alliance. It also undermines ongoing US-NATO-Israel pre-emptive war plans directed against Iran, which until recently were endorsed by the Turkish military. . .

Israel’s blockade of Gaza is in large part motivated by the broader issue of control of Gaza’s territorial waters, which contain significant reserves of natural gas. What is at stake is the confiscation of Palestinian gas fields and the unilateral de facto declaration of Israeli sovereignty over Gaza’s maritime areas. If the blockade were to be broken, Israel’s de facto control over Gaza’s offshore gas reserves would be in jeopardy. . . The issue of sovereignty over Gaza’s gas fields is crucial. From a legal standpoint, the gas reserves belong to Palestine.

The death of Yasser Arafat, the election of the Hamas government and the ruin of the Palestinian Authority have enabled Israel to establish de facto control over Gaza’s offshore gas reserves.

The invasion plan of the Gaza Strip under “Operation Cast Lead” was set in motion in June 2008, according to Israeli military sources . . . “even as Israel was beginning to negotiate a ceasefire agreement with Hamas”. . . That very same month, the Israeli authorities contacted British Gas, with a view to resuming crucial negotiations pertaining to purchase of Gaza’s natural gas. . . The military occupation of Gaza is intent upon transferring the sovereignty of the gas fields to Israel in violation of international law.

If this were to occur, the Gaza gas fields would be integrated into Israel’s offshore installations, which are contiguous to those of the Gaza Strip.

The Technological Revolution and the Future of Freedom – Part II
Revolution and Repression in America

June 29, 2010 — Technological Revolution has led to a diametrically opposed, antagonistic, and conflicting geopolitical reality: never before has humanity been so awakened to issues of power, exploitation, imperialism and domination; and simultaneously, never before have elites been so transnational and global in orientation, and with the ability to impose such a truly global system of scientific despotism and political oppression. These are the two major geopolitical realities of the world today. Never in all of human history has mankind been so capable of achieving a true global political psycho-social awakening; nor . . . in such danger of being subjected to a truly global scientific totalitarianism, potentially more oppressive than any system known before, and without a doubt more technologically capable of imposing a permanent despotism upon humanity. . .

This new reality in the world, coupled with the fact that the world’s population has never been so vast, presents a challenge to elites seeking to dominate people all over the world who are aware and awakened to the realities of social inequality, war, poverty, exploitation, disrespect, imperialism and domination. This directly implies that these populations will be significantly more challenging to control: economically, politically, socially, psychologically and spiritually. Thus, from the point of view of the global oligarchy, the only method of imposing order and control—on this unique and historical human condition—is through the organized chaos of economic crises, war, and the rapid expansion and institutionalization of a global scientific dictatorship. . .

The events of September 11th, 2001, sparked two major geopolitical events. The first was the implementation of the Bush Doctrine—the ‘War on Terror’—which was organized in response to the terrorist attacks. This imperialist expansion led to the war and occupation of Afghanistan, the war on Iraq and subsequent occupation, the war in Lebanon in 2006, the war on Somalia, continuing military expansionism and imposition in the Palestinian territories, as well as expansive covert operations in the Middle East, Central Asia, Africa and around the world.

The second major geopolitical trend instigated by the 9/11 attacks was the formation of what has come to be known as the ‘9/11 Truth Movement,’ in which millions of people around the world, including thousands of academics, architects, engineers, government officials, intelligence and military officials and other professionals, as well as an exponentially growing abundance of people in the general population internationally have sought to question and challenge the official accounts of the events of 9/11. . .

With the increasing militarization of foreign policy, we also see the increasing militarization of domestic politics, and most notably the emergence of a high-tech surveillance police state: a ‘Homeland Security State.’ National and international elites are in the process of incrementally constructing a ‘new totalitarianism’ in replacing democracy. . . the military is increasingly poised to partake in policing. Further, over the past decade, we have seen the rapid expansion of ‘Continuity of Government’ (COG) plans, which plan for the suspension of the Constitution and imposition of martial law in the event of an emergency. At this point in American society, if there was a rapid and expansive economic collapse or another major terrorist attack on US soil, America would transform into a military government, more fascist in nature than anything; but equipped with an arsenal and ‘technetronic’ police state the likes of which no dictator in history has had access to. . .

One interesting facet that very little is known about in the militarization of domestic society and incremental totalitarianism is how the coercive state apparatus, while being justified under the guise of fighting terrorism or ‘protecting the Homeland,’ is in fact being directed against citizen activists and popular political movements. . . To those in power, ‘peace’ is an ‘extremist’ idea, because ‘war’ and ‘violence’ are the norms . . . One startling and deeply concerning development in the area of ‘Homeland Security’ is the highly secretive and deliberately quiet establishment of ‘detention centers’ within the United States, designed to house millions of people in the event of an ’emergency’ . . .

For the first time in the last 500 years, the East has risen—with China and India—as new global powers, rising within the system not against it; marking the first time that nation-states have not risen against the global power, but with the global power. China and India are being brought within a new global political and economic system that is being constructed: a global totalitarian system of continental colonies to a global state. . .

It is a difficult balancing act for global powers—particularly the United States—to manage the integration of China into the ‘new world order’, while simultaneously both of them compete for control of global resources, located primarily in regions of the world which are experiencing the most rapid and extensive ‘awakening’. . . In many people’s view of the global economic crisis, the problem was ‘greed’. Greed is not the problem, it is but a symptom of the disease that is ‘power’; which, like a cancer, expands and kills its host. Humanity is entering what will likely be the most turbulent period in human history. . . If we keep creating positions of great power, and continually globalize power, it will attract exactly the wrong type of people to those positions of power: the ones that want it and want to abuse the power. These people are more likely to get to these positions of power because they are willing to do anything to get there, which means that once they have it, they will do anything to maintain and expand it. And so power grows, and the cancer spreads. . . True peace will never be possible with a singular global power structure; for once power is globally centralized, what more can the powerful seek to achieve? Thus, the powerful fight each other for control of the centralized authority, paranoia governs their minds, and distrust and hatred directs their actions. . . We cannot any longer view each other through the lenses of power: through the media, government, economic, and social structures. These structures are designed with the intent to mislead and misrepresent people, they are illegitimate and must be considered as such. . . With power, peace is impossible.

From the militarization of domestic society, it would appear as if we are moving into a world quite reminiscent of George Orwell’s 1984, in which the world is divided into a few major regional blocs that war against each other and terrorize their populations through acts of physical terror and total surveillance (‘Big Brother’). This is but a phase and evolution into the final stage—the grand idea—or as Aldous Huxley referred to it, ‘The Ultimate Revolution’: the global scientific dictatorship. Full story: globalresearch.ca

Is New Oz PM Head of Satanist Lodge?

July 13, 2010 — In a dramatic coup June 24 2010, Julia Gillard took over as Prime Minister from Kevin Rudd and became Australia’s first female PM.

Gillard is the first PM to be unmarried and a lesbian. (She is in a relationship with Tim Mathieson—who is a “beard”). She is the first PM to be sworn in without making reference to God. (Gillard is an atheist and has no religious beliefs).

A reader has suggested that Gillard is head of the Satanic Alpha lodge of Sydney (“Australia’s global satanic legacy and future“).

This is based on the posthumous confessions of a leading Australian Satanist “Frater 616”: “Some of the deadliest, most effective and disarming assassins are women. Within the Alpha Lodges they are worshipped as embodiments of the Dark Goddess—who is known by many names and is virgin still! Currently the Outer Head of the Alpha Lodge Australasia is a very highly placed and successful Federal politician—whose Satanic name is Bestia.”

We asked Aloysius Fozdyke, (the man who brought Frater 616’s testimony to the world), to comment. He is a member of the Alpha Lodge and we assume acts with their authorization. His reply on the “Bestia”-Gillard connection: “I’d rather not comment at this stage” . . . Full story: henrymakow.com

Comment: Luke 17:28-30; Ecclesiastes 7:26.


The Second Seal

By Boyd Reneau

“Calling those things which were not as though they were,” Abraham looked for a City whose Builder and Ruler is God. His seed who speak with like conviction, are that City. The birth of Jesus Messiah was proclaimed by the Angel Gabriel when John the forerunner was six months in his mother’s womb. At his circumcision six months before Jesus’ birth, thirty years before His public ministry and 2,000 years before the remission of Israel’s sins and rebirth in one day, Zachariah declared: “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for He has
visited and redeemed
His people, and raised up a powerful Saviour for us in the house of His servant David, as He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient times—that we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all who hate us. To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember His holy Covenant; the oath which He swore to our father Abraham, to grant us, that we being delivered from the hand of our enemies might serve Him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him, all the days of our life.”

“And You, little One, shall be called the Prophet of the Highest: for You will go before the Lord to prepare His ways; to give knowledge of salvation to His people by the remission of their sins, through the tender mercy of our God; by which the Dayspring [or Bright and Morning Star] will visit us from on high, to give Light to them sitting in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace” (Luke 1:68-76).

Zechariah was a man of Abrahamic faith. And so today we see a modern Israel state in the homeland pending the anointing of two Hebrew prophets in the Spirit and power that endued Moses and Elijah (Zechariah 4; Revelation 11) and the return of the Covenant people. Abraham staggered not at the promise through unbelief but was strong in faith, giving glory to God. Jesus told the apostate Jews, “you have not known the One you say is your God for He honours Me. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day: and he saw it, and was glad” (John 8:54-56). It was his belief in the Word of God’s promise that was the cause of Abraham’s joy and the rejuvenation of his life enabling the patriarchal paternity (Genesis 15:4; 17:17; 18:10; Hebrews 11:11-12; John 1:13). Isaac’s birth, like the resurrection of our Lord (Psalm 16:10), was mediated by the inspiration of faith and was therefore a type of the inspiration of faith by which the Virgin conceived and the rapturing faith we will receive by grace. Abraham saw the day of Christ in the hope for an heir (not heirs) for the inheritance (Genesis 17:7; 22:18; Romans 4:19-21; 9:8; Galatians 3:16; Galatians 4:23; Hebrews 11:8-20).

Jesus Messiah was the object of Abraham’s highest desire. Abraham saw His day through faith in the promises of God, in types like the sacrifice of Isaac signifying the death and resurrection of the promised Seed, and in the manifestations of Melchisedec, who is the Logos wherein the Lord appeared veiled in the flesh of a created man just before Abraham and Sarah’s bodies were renewed to receive their promised son (Genesis 14; 18). That same God has appeared in our time, veiled behind the flesh of a sinner saved by grace, as surety to impart the faith of Jesus Christ that our bodies might be renewed to receive Abraham’s greater Son.

The Lord has been so good in revealing His secrets to us. In I Corinthians 2:6-10 the great apostle Paul said, “We speak wisdom among those who are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, who come to nought: but we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world to our glory: which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, No eye has seen, no ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit: for the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God”.

This great outpouring of the Spirit at the end-time is truly the capstone revelation of the Pentecostal Feast whereby we crowned our Lord King of kings when He claimed the Book of Redemption (Revelation 5:8-14). In earlier years believers rejoiced when they saw Jesus in the Scriptures, but could not have imagined the glorious richness unveiled before us in the opening of the Seals. Almighty God, who would not hide from Abraham the utter destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah (since his Seed would become a great and mighty nation), has revealed the mystery and purpose of His will to Abraham’s faith seed in this end-time just before the destruction of the Gentile world.

Throughout the Ages, fellowship in God’s unchanging Word and service to the Lord has been paramount in the sight of believers. Since the loose ends of doctrine have been gathered into the unity of the faith we now have the “true sayings of God” by which we will transcend gravity. Time and the things of this world grow dim in the Light of this Message as it imparts faith displayed in a life that is the Token of our soon-coming body change.

In the First Seal the rider on the white horse had a bow but no arrows. Then he received a triple crown and went forth conquering and to conquer. He had many titles, such as Vicar of Christ, and Holy Father, but he is not named until the Fourth Seal.

The spirit of antichrist was insinuating itself into the circle of the Church then as it has insinuated itself into the circle of this Message today. Under the First Seal he established spiritual power which he consolidated as the Roman Universal church in union with the state. Man-made creed and tradition usurped the pure Word of God, Papal Encyclicals and secret conclaves supplanted the Leadership of the Spirit, and worship in Spirit and in Truth was smothered by liturgy and ritual in an alien tongue. Whereas God had ordained a five-fold ministry, “evil men and impostors went from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.” The righteous were excommunicated, incarcerated, beaten and stoned, but their foundation was “the full counsel of God” with the demonstration of the Holy Ghost working through them. It would be this teaching of truth and righteousness that Satan would attack.

In the Second Seal Satan would usurp political power over all states under the fourth Gentile world empire of Rome. Revelation 6: 3-4, “When the Lamb had opened the Second Seal, I . . . (insert your name here) . . . heard the second living creature say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and its rider was empowered to take peace from the earth, so that men should kill one another: and he was given a great sword”.

This was Satan in another stage of his incarnation from that seemingly innocuous antichrist spirit called nicolaitanism to the false prophet and Supreme Pontiff of the universal or Catholic church, his triple crown signified dominion over heaven, earth and purgatory. This is the IMPERSONATOR at work.

God is unfolding Himself from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts to the glorified flesh of Jesus Christ and the New Testament saints by manifested faith in His unchanging Word, while Satan is incarnating himself into the corruptible flesh of a Pope and his blasphemous world church system by perverting God’s revealed Word which is Spirit and Life to its antithesis, which is Death. Whereas God is called “Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war,” the Enemy is unfaithful and deceitful, bearing spiritual and natural death from the beginning until he and his subjects are cast into the Lake of Fire.

When Moses delivered Israel it was born naturally as “one nation under God,” but Israel broke His Covenant and killed His Messiah. Since 1954 citizens of the United States, which is Israel’s antitype, “pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” And so long as she was “under God”—the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—she was “indivisible,” but today she is under many gods, for “as it was in the days of Noah” America has become the “great big melting pot” of miscegenation between the Sons of God and the daughters of men as the Lord told Daniel, “they shall be mixed in marriage, but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay” (Daniel 2:43; Genesis 6:1-4; Matthew 24:37).

Brother Branham said, “This America is the prostitute of the nations. That’s exactly what she is, and she’s going to be worse than ever now. She’s coming to her end. The Bible speaks of her doom, tells how she’s going to be. America: lowdown, rotten, filthy, no good. That’s exactly right. She’s been a great nation. She’s carried the Gospel Message. What makes her the way she is? Because she’s turned down the Gospel Message and rejected the truth. She’s horrible. She’s got it coming; don’t worry. I seen it in the vision as THUS SAITH THE LORD. It’s coming. She’s going to pay for her sins.

[“The last and seventh vision was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:3)].

Back when America was America, she was a great nation. The greatest the world’s ever known since Israel, was America; but she sure has polluted herself now. She’s rejected the Message” (Revelation Chapter Four, Part III, p. 661:87-88).

“O Lord, the hope of Israel, all that forsake You shall be ashamed, and they that depart from You shall be consigned to the dust, [and not to glory], because they have forsaken the Lord, the Fountain of living waters” (Jeremiah 17:13).

Like Israel, the United States has ended in apostasy, and having rejected her last opportunity for national repentance in 1956/7, Brother Branham said, “It’s a million miles from being a Christian country. I don’t even pray for it. How can I pray for it, and it won’t repent under the mighty powers of God demonstrated before it, and denying, and closing the doors to it, and walking away? I commit it to God. And she’s going further away, and now she’s going to sink. Just watch what happens” (Trying to do God a Service without being the Will of God, p. 23:136).

Every government of the earth is owned and ruled by the Devil who is the god of this evil age. He showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world that were and would be, seeking to gift them without sacrifice in order to prevent Him from playing the part of our Kinsman Redeemer (Matthew 4:8-9). The US, which was founded by the Pilgrim Fathers seeking freedom of worship was once considered the greatest peace-loving nation on earth, is now the blooded image of the Beast of Imperial Rome ruled by Satan’s children (John 8:44).

Jesus symbolized the United States as a beast, which in Scripture signifies a power. It was the America buffalo that came out of the earth and had two horns like a lamb—signifying the separation of civil and religious power with freedom of religion so that at first he acted like a lamb and he spoke like a lamb—”friendship with all [nations] but alliances with none.” However it did not age into an old ram but morphed into the image of the Roman dragon. Today, the “Land of the Free and Home of the Brave” is shackled with insurmountable debt; cowardly killing innocent people in foreign lands and even citizens within in her own borders at the behest of the Enemy of God and Adam’s race. “Exercising all the power of the first beast [Rome] before him, and causing all who dwell on the earth, to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed [when Imperial Rome morphed into Papal Rome]. And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven [with atomic and hydrogen bombs], deceiving the nations by means of these miracles . . .” (Revelation 13:11-18).

Interestingly, in her July 6, 2010 address, Queen Elizabeth II challenged the United Nations to fight global dangers by “waging” peace, then entered ground zero for the first time to honor the victims of the 9/11 attacks. “Waging peace” my brother/sister is identical to the Orwellian “peace offensive” launched by Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev in 1956 roughly one year before the Queen’s first visit to the UN. It should be apparent that the world has gone full circle in the mystery of iniquity and the “cup has been filled with a double portion in retribution” (Revelation 18:6). The spirit of Laodicean apostasy covers this globe from end to end. All are deceived, with the exception of those who receive their revelation from the Angel with the open book in His hand (Revelation 10:10).

Daniel (8:25), who saw the deadly nature of Satan working through all four Gentile world powers said concerning the rider of the fourth horse, “By his scheming he will make treachery win out, and in chutzpah magnify himself in his heart, and by peace destroy the unsuspecting . . .” So today the world is smitten by a “peace offensive” employing all the subterfuge and lying wonders initiated when Lucifer rode his white horse, indicative of righteousness, which continues to deceive theologians after two thousand years. By this means he will achieve one world dictatorship, an objective that clearly could not be gained by a conventional military confrontation.

Like our treacherous “lawmakers,” Satan has employed the tactics of his Fabian Society to gradually transform himself from the spirit of antichrist to the false prophet in the days when the majority in Christian circles were either Israelites or so-called Jews. After the Church goes Home he will be cast down to earth to become the beast, the Devil incarnate, the red dragon himself. He is incarnate in his people then. He has his people in his power. The false prophet has prophesied them right into it, given them over to strong delusions to believe a lie and be damned by it . . . (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 204:3-4; Revelation 12:7-13; 13:1-10; II Thessalonians 2:7-12).

The Bible clearly states that power was given to him to take peace from the earth and that’s just what he’s been doing. He was a LIAR and a MURDERER from the beginning so you can’t expect the truth from him because no truth abides in him or his children. His second horse was blood red and his works pertained to the Christian persecution during the Dark Ages.

Speaking of the Second Seal, Jesus said, “You shall hear of wars and rumors of wars; this does not signal My return, for this must take place, but the end is not yet.” Regarding the Gentile dispensation He prophesied, “Great tribulation [commencing with the siege of Jerusalem] such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days should are shortened, there should no flesh be saved [for the rapture]: but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened” (Matthew 24:6; 15-28; Revelation 7:14; 20:4).

inquisition on the wheelTo this day millions of Christians have been persecuted, tortured, burned at the stake, fed to lions, and killed on a grand scale. From the time of Augustine of Hippo until about 1850, the Roman Catholic church alone martyred 68 millions who denied her doctrine, which is the mark of the beast—or simply read God’s Bible. Foxes Book of Martyrs and S.S. Schmucker’s Discourse on the Commemoration of the Glorious Reformation of the 16th Century detail the horrors believers endured for the NAME of Jesus Christ and the triumph of faith which enabled them to sing hymns, pray for their torturers, and declare “No pain” as hot coals slowly cooked their limbs.

Since Britain was conquered in 1688 and became merely a colony of the ‘City of London,’ her power and the resources of what is today ‘the Empire of the City of London’ (or Commonwealth of Nations), has been directed to achieving one world government. In just the last century ‘the City’ was guilty of the deaths of hundreds of millions of Christians and others. As I write, billions worldwide are being desensitized and dehumanized by Hollywood sorcery through the principality of the “air” per medium of film, television, music and computer games. From cradle to grave men’s minds are manipulated with disinformation in education and the news by “spirits of demons, working miracles, which confer with the rulers of this world to gather them for the battle against the Lord on the great day of God the Almighty” (Revelation 16:14; 18:23). This is evident in the Allied atrocities of World Wars I and II—the real holocaust—and the ongoing slaughter of peaceful and innocent nations with the objective of controlling their resources and rendering them subject to world government, justified by the myth of three holocausts and fraudulent claims of a Muslim attack on 9/11. Can you see that the (once) Christian nations are as apostate as Israel was in the days of our Lord, and that our young men (and women) are being blooded to kill all who refuse to receive the doctrine or obey the edicts of the Judaeo-Roman church and her daughters in the coming tribulation?

Many of us can still openly purchase and freely read the Bible or the history of the Christian Church, and fellowship to establish others in the faith, but as I write other believers around the world are being tortured and martyred. Use your time wisely, and “redeem the time for the days are evil. . . the night comes when no man can work,” so shine your Light for Jesus while you are able.

When the mob descended in the Garden of Gethsemane, Peter was of a mind to fight the infidels but our Lord told him, “put away your sword, for they who live by the sword shall die by the sword.” As NO Christian is above his Master, on no account did Christians condone or participate in the martyrdom of men of other religions let alone professed Christians.

Satan rode his red horse for almost a thousand years, it was the bloodiest era of Church history. Under this Seal, which compassed the Thyatira Church Age (606 – 1520), he exchanged his bow for “a great sword” to kill all who would not receive the false teachings of his church and gain political power. Today his church is in every nation (Matthew 4:8-9), so please warn your denominational friends Death rules in churches that curry favour with government for tax exemptions and other privileges.

Diagram showing the Virtue of each AgeSatan attended church at the First Nicea Council where he merged ecclesiastical powers and political powers in the universal Roman Catholic church. To those who were carnal-minded it seemed perfectly reasonable to unite the empire in common worship. But few could visualize the dark spirit veiled behind the purple cloth, or that as “all things work together for the good of God’s elect. . . the Lord raised up an ensign against the evil one,” and used his wickedness to develop character manifest as faith in the saints of the Ephesian Church Age; Virtue (strength) in the Smyrnean Age, and Knowledge of God’s unchanging Word by which to discern right from wrong in the saints of the Pergamean Church Age.

“God has not given us a spirit of cowardice, but of power and love and self-control. Do not be ashamed, therefore, of testifying of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner: but share my suffering for the Gospel in the power of God”  (II Timothy 1:8). For the virtue displayed by the saints of the Thyatira Age was Temperance, which is self-control.

That should be instructive for all, since the false vine flourished in part because the celebrities and bigwigs who attended ‘church’ were ashamed to declare the whole counsel of God and stoop to spontaneous clapping and shouts of “amen,” or staggering under the influence of the Spirit and associating with fishermen and tax collectors, converted prostitutes and plain common folk. Their hunger was for polite intercourse with ‘respectable’ society rather than the unadulterated Word of the hour. Like Cain, theirs was a social gospel without the Blood of the Lamb. How God confounds the wise and prudent with “foolish” things.

Jesus of Nazareth was born in a stable and was not received by this world. He said, “I am meek and lowly in heart.” Some of the wonderful epistles in the Bible were written from behind bars in gloomy dungeons. But God has filled our hearts with His love and given us the Spirit of Adoption. How but in lowliness of mind, can we esteem the other better than ourselves and fulfill Paul’s joy (Philippians 2: 1-5) that we be in one accord and one mind. Satan’s intellectual polished Church trusts in science and corrupt theology, looking down on what God has sanctified and cleansed, but all members of the body of Christ are baptized by the same Holy Spirit and that is marvelous in our eyes.

Amidst great strife the True Church held to God’s unchanging hand while the false church system trod faith underfoot. That woman Jezebel was seducing and causing people to commit spiritual fornication against God’s Word and those who withstood the anti-Christ church were deemed heretics and destroyed. What Jezebel did not realize was that she and her children were being destroyed with Death.

God's throne guardsBrother Branham said, “Everything that you see that’s wrong, just do the opposite and you’ll be right as unrighteousness is righteousness perverted.” So while Satan’s Roman church was killing Christians during the Dark Ages, God countered his dark force with another mighty cherub. The living creature that announced the Second Seal had the face of an Ox, which is a beast of burden and sacrifice. Its patient productive work would be the predominant feature of grace in the lives of God’s people during the Dark Ages. No militant uprising, no political activism, but Temperance; no matter what the cost, the saints during this time lay down their lives for the Gospel. Grace enabled Christians in this Age to bear the burden of suffering unto death. Though they were persecuted, tortured, burned at stake, and fed to lions, their courage did not waver and they graciously surrendered their lives for the sake of the Word of God.

The believers Hall of Fame records the great exploits of faith of the Old Testament saints. Hebrew 11:35-37, “others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: and others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: they were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword”.

Yet to the chagrin of their slayers they gloried in their martyrdom, “some through the water, some through the flood, some through the fire but all through the Blood.” None recanted the faith or denied that lovely Name of Jesus. Hallelujah! As Jesus freely died for us they freely died for Him.

The Bible faithfully records who is responsible for this and the awful price that will be paid for touching God’s anointed: “The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication”.

Brother Branham said, “That antichrist spirit, fornication (See?) teaching, that committing adultery with God. See? Now, she’s supposed to be a bride (See?), and committing adultery (See?); see just like Eve did—just like the church does there. See?”

“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, (anybody knows Babylon is Rome) THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” (Listen to the sixth verse). “And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.”

“She was such a beautiful thing with crosses and everything on her; how in the world could she be the guilty of drinking the blood of the saints. It puzzled him. Now, He is going to tell him” (ibid, p. 218:1-4).

“All right. This rider and all his kingdom subjects that are slain down through the Age that’s drawed all this blood of the martyrs of the saints will be slain by the sword of Jesus Christ when He comes. “They that take the sword will be slain by the sword.” They took the sword of dogma and antichrist and cut down the real true worshippers all down through the ages by the millions, and when Christ comes with the Sword—for it is His Word that proceeds out of His mouth—He will slay every enemy there is before Him. You believe it” (ibid, p. 221:1; I Corinthians 15:25-28)?

The prophet made this wonderful statement just before ending that sermon:

“As the impostors against the Word of God, and because they wouldn’t agree and this thing, Satan placed, united the political powers which he held and the spiritual powers which he held together and made a church that sweeps into every nation; and he’s put millions times millions (after he had jumped off from his white horse onto his red horse), and he took his sword and went forth; but God said with the same thing that he perverted, or tried to—the false teaching—that same Word will rise in power, coming forth from the lips of Jesus Christ, and it shall slay him and everything before him. Amen. There’s the Second Seal. Do you love Him? Oh, my. That’s THUS SAITH THE LORD” (ibid p. 222:5)!!!

Read this Message of the Prophet friends, catch the revelation, search the Scriptures and hear the deep and passionate prayer at the close of this sermon when in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, the prophet commanded those who had not yet been filled with the Holy Ghost to fall to their knees and not to get up until the Holy Spirit had sanctified them thoroughly and filled them with His love and goodness and their souls were so satisfied in the Presence of God that their whole desire would be to serve Him and walk and work with Him all the rest of their lives.

May that prayer be the desire of your heart. God bless you. nl640.htm

How Goldman gambled on Starvation
July 2, 2010 — By now, you probably think your opinion of Goldman Sachs and its swarm of Wall Street allies has rock-bottomed at raw loathing. You’re wrong. There’s more. It turns out that the most destructive of all their recent acts has barely been discussed at all. Here’s the rest. This is the story of how some of the richest people in the world—Goldman, Deutsche Bank, the traders at Merrill Lynch, and more—have caused the starvation of some of the poorest people in the world.

It starts with an apparent mystery. At the end of 2006, food prices across the world started to rise, suddenly and stratospherically. Within a year, the price of wheat had shot up by 80 per cent, maize by 90 per cent, rice by 320 per cent. In a global jolt of hunger, 200 million people—mostly children—couldn’t afford to get food any more, and sank into malnutrition or starvation. There were riots in more than 30 countries, and at least one government was violently overthrown. Then, in spring 2008, prices just as mysteriously fell back to their previous level. Jean Ziegler, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, calls it “a silent mass murder”, entirely due to “man-made actions”. . .

Comment: Like derivatives, weather modification by scalar technology, ethanol biofuel, and the likely aromatic poisoning of crops resulting from the uncontrolled gusher in the Gulf, are agents of death by famine foretold in Revelation 6:8.

The Empire of “The City”
“The City” is an international financial oligarchy and is perhaps the most arbitrary and absolute form of government in the world. This international financial oligarchy uses the allegoric “Crown” as its symbol of power and has its headquarters in the ancient City of London, an area of 677 acres; which strangely in all the vast expanse of the 443,455 acres of Metropolitan London alone is not under the jurisdiction of the Metropolitan Police, but has its own private force of about 2,000 men, while its night population is under 9,000.

This tiny area of a little over one square mile has in it the giant Bank of England, a privately owned institution; which as is further elaborated hereinafter is not subject to regulation by the British Parliament, and is in effect a sovereign world power. Within the City are located also the Stock Exchange and many institutions of world-wide scope. The City carries on its business of local government with a fanciful display of pompous medieval ceremony and with its officers attired in grotesque ancient costumes. Its voting power is vested in secret guilds with names of long extinct crafts such as the Mercers, Grocers, Fishmongers, Skinners, Vintners, etc. All this trivial pomp and absurdity and horse-play seems to serve very well to blind the eyes of the public to the big things going on behind the scenes; for the late Vincent Cartwright Vickers, once Deputy-Lieutenant of this City, a director of the great British armament firm of Vickers Ltd., and a director of the Bank of England from 1910 to 1919, in his “Economic Tribulation” published 1940, lays the wars of the world on the door-step of the City.

That the British people and the British Parliament have little to say in the foreign affairs of the British Empire, and that the people of the British Empire must fight when International Finance and the City blow the trumpet, appears from the paean of praise of America by Andrew Carnegie, “Triumphant Democracy,” published in 1886 by that American super-industrialist and British newspaper publisher, in the following words: “My American readers may not be aware of the fact that, while in Britain an act of Parliament is necessary before works for a supply of water or a mile of railway can be constructed, six or seven men can plunge the nation into war, or, what is perhaps equally disastrous, commit it to entangling alliances without consulting Parliament at all. This is the most pernicious, palpable effect flowing from the monarchial theory, for these men do this in ‘the king’s Name,’ who is in theory still a real monarch, although in reality only a convenient puppet, to be used by the cabinet at pleasure to suit their own needs” Full story: empire.htm

Comment: Before the fourth of July weekend, there was unreported manoeuvre in the US Senate designed to cover the City’s ‘false flag’ and protect BP and the federal government from liability in the Gulf disaster. You have to see this with your my own eyes brasschecktv. Meanwhile soldiers from the City’s colony of (once) Great Britain, take a leaf from the IDF Manual on cowardice, and in the absence of Palestinian children, beat up Iraqi boys confirming Sir Henry Kissinger’s assessment of military men as “dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.” The National Guard is dumb enough to place New Your City under de facto martial law. Latvian and Polish troops participated in an exercise by the Illinois National Guards.

Why the State Hates Cholesterol
Why is the war on cholesterol of such benefit to government, despite being bankrupt as a scientific theory? The State relies on a submissive population—one in which individuals do not think for themselves, and preferably do not think at all.

It is no surprise then, that a molecule that plays such a central role in the brain would become the primary target of government. The brain makes up only 2% of the body’s weight, yet it consists of a full 25% of the body’s cholesterol! The importance of cholesterol to mental function is enormous. Cholesterol was discovered in 2001 to be the limiting factor in the formation of synapses, which are the connections between neurons, or nerve cells. A more recent study found that extracting some of the cholesterol from the cell membrane of a neuron causes a loss of functioning of signaling proteins that tell the neurons what direction to grow in, so they can make the proper type of connections. And, Dr. Iwo J. Bohr has hypothesized that a contributing factor to Alzheimer’s disease is a deficiency of cholesterol in the membranes of brain cells. . .

“Fluoride in drinking water is a topic to raise the hackles of those doubting its dental benefits and resenting its addition to the public water supply. Meanwhile the water additive plot thickens as doctors in England debate whether drinking water might be used to administer cholesterol-lowering drugs to the public in an effort to reduce incidents of cardiovascular disease, the biggest cause of death in the United Kingdom.”

If your fluoridated and chlorinated municipal water supply wasn’t toxic enough, you may just be a victim of theft in the coming future: the unwilling robbery of cholesterol from your cells, and an extra hit in the wallet to finance the addition of expensive drugs to your water. . .

Comment: Then there is carcinogenic unleaded petrol: lead from leaded petrol is, after combustion, relatively harmless. Blood tests show lead levels to have gradually decreased since the ’30’s despite increasing use of leaded fuel, following decreased use of pewter, lead solder in food cans and replacement of lead water pipes. But dimethylbenzene, mesitylene, toluene, xylene and benzene in unleaded petrol are all declared carcinogens and far more dangerous. Catalytic converters do not work until they read 400 degrees, and cars fitted with anti-pollution gear are clean for about a year or 50,000Km. The British National Society for Clean Air no longer supports unleaded petrol. More deadly that this genocidal activity of ‘the City’ is organized religion.

US Government Panel now pushing “Vaccinations for All!” No Exceptions. . .
June 26, 2010 — An advisory panel to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) . . . The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, voted 11-0 with one abstention to recommend yearly flu vaccination for everyone except for children under the age of six months, whose immune systems have not yet developed enough for vaccination to be safe, and people with egg allergies or other health conditions that are known to make flu vaccines hazardous. If accepted by the CDC, this recommendation will then be publicized to doctors and other health workers. . .

The Technological Revolution and the Future of Freedom – Part I
The Global Political Awakening and the New World Order
June 24, 2010 — There is a new and unique development in human history that is taking place around the world; it is unprecedented in reach and volume, and it is also the greatest threat to all global power structures: the ‘global political awakening.’ The term was coined by Zbigniew Brzezinski, and refers to the fact that:

America needs to face squarely a centrally important new global reality: that the world’s population is experiencing a political awakening unprecedented in scope and intensity, with the result that the politics of populism are transforming the politics of power. The need to respond to that massive phenomenon poses to the uniquely sovereign America an historic dilemma: What should be the central definition of America’s global role?

Brzezinski explains that formulating a foreign policy based off of one single event—the September 11th terror attacks—has both legitimized illegal measures (torture, suspension of habeas corpus, etc) and has launched and pacified citizens to accepting the ‘global war on terror,’ a war without end. The rhetoric and emotions central to this global foreign policy created a wave of patriotism and feelings of redemption and revenge. Thus, Brzezinski explains:

There was no need to be more precise as to who the terrorists actually were, where they came from, or what historical motives, religious passions or political grievances had focused their hatred on America. Terrorism thus replaced Soviet nuclear weapons as the principal threat, and terrorists (potentially omnipresent and generally identified as Muslims) replaced communists as the ubiquitous menace.

Brzezinski explains that this foreign policy, which has inflamed anti-Americanism around the world, specifically in the Muslim world, which was the principle target population of ‘terrorist’ rhetoric, has in fact further inflamed the ‘global political awakening’. Brzezinski writes that:

[T]he central challenge of our time is posed not by global terrorism, but rather by the intensifying turbulence caused by the phenomenon of global political awakening. That awakening is socially massive and politically radicalizing.

This ‘global political awakening’, Brzezinski writes, while unique in its global scope today, originates in the ideas and actions of the French Revolution, which was central in ‘transforming modern politics through the emergence of a socially powerful national consciousness.’ Full story: globalresearch.ca

Comment: “When the populace has seen that all sorts of concessions and indulgences are yielded it in the name of freedom it has imagined itself to be sovereign lord and has stormed its way to power, but, naturally like every other blind man, it has come upon a host of stumbling blocks. IT HAS RUSHED TO FIND A GUIDE, IT HAS NEVER HAD THE SENSE TO RETURN TO THE FORMER STATE and it has laid down its plenipotentiary powers at OUR feet. Remember the French Revolution, to which it was we who gave the name of “Great”: the secrets of its preparations are well known to us for it was wholly the work of our hands (Protocol 3:14. So you see, the United States, Britain, Russia, and all other colonies of ‘the City’ are led by their enemy (Genesis 3:15).

The spirit of Laodicea is defined in Woodrow Wilson’s policy of a right to ‘national self determination,’ and in Machiavellian Edward Bernays, Zbigniew Brzezinski, the RIIA, CFR, Bilderberg, Trilateral Commission and their US puppet through the IMF, NATO, UN, WTO and blooded military which together have manipulated human society in the creation of Lucifer’s Fabian, Christ-rejecting totalitarian one world government of carnal reasoning.

Green Energy ‘Mafia’ shows Hand
June 24, 2010 — The author of a damning study about the failure of Spain’s “green jobs” program received a ‘threatening package’ from solar energy company Thermotechnic. Christopher Horner a Senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute wrote:

‘Green’ Energy Company Threatens Economics Professor . . . with Package of Dismantled Bomb Parts

‘Spain’s Dr. Gabriel Calzada—the author of a damning study concluding that Spain’s “green jobs” energy program has been a catastrophic economic failure—was mailed a dismantled bomb on Tuesday by solar energy company Thermotechnic. . .

Dr. Calzada added: [The terrorism expert] told me that this was a warning. [There are some reports that the underlying issue was a courier error, compounded by the less tangible threats and attacks Calzada has suffered]:

The bomb threat is just the latest intimidation Dr. Calzada has faced since releasing his report and following up with articles in Expansion (a Spanish paper similar to the Financial Times). A minister from Spain’s Socialist government called the rector of King Juan Carlos University—Dr. Calzada’s employer—seeking Calzada’s ouster. Calzada was not fired, but he was stripped of half of his classes at the university. The school then dropped its accreditation of a summer university program with which Calzada’s think tank—Instituto Juan de Mariana—was associated.

Additionally, the head of Spain’s renewable energy association and the head of its communist trade union wrote opinion pieces in top Spanish newspapers accusing Calzada of being ‘unpatriotic’—they did not charge him with being incorrect, but of undermining Spain by daring to write the report.

Their reasoning? If the skepticism that Calzada’s revelations prompted were to prevail in the US, Spanish industry would face collapse should US subsidies and mandates dry up.

As I have previously reported . . . Spain’s ‘green jobs’ program was repeatedly referenced by President Obama as a model for what he would like to implement in the United States. Following the release of Calzada’s report, Spain’s Socialist government has since acknowledged the debacle—both privately and publicly. This month, Spain’s government instituted massive reductions in subsidies to ‘renewable’ energy sources.

Dr. Calzada is a friend of mine, kindly writing a blurb for the jacket of my latest book: ‘Power Grab: How Obama’s Green Policies Will Steal Your Freedom and Bankrupt America’. My book details the Spanish ‘green jobs’ disaster uncovered by Dr. Calzada, plus similar ‘green’ economic calamities occurring in Germany and Denmark—also programs Obama has praised—as well as in Italy and elsewhere.

As I detail in ‘Power Grab,’ they felt Spain would be in a dire position without the US playing the role of sucker. With today’s revelation, now we know just how far the ‘green energy’ lobby will go to keep the money flowing.’

The First Seal – Part II
By Boyd Reneau

The difference between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan is the difference between Light and Darkness. God’s creative Word has Life in itself and brought forth a universe in beauty and perfection. Satan, who is not a creator, perverted God’s Word and transmogrified His beautiful creation into an Eden of sin, disgrace, and mortality. The Kingdom of God is based on Faith or revelation in His Word, which can only be received by those born again. All must enter the one Door called “JESUS,” come to Him for Light and acknowledge Him as LORD. This Kingdom comes not with observation for it is that unseen dimension of faith that grows within your soul and displayed in a life lived by a clear understanding of the Word for your day. This is the evidence of heavenly citizenship.

Paul said, “He that built all things is God . . . with Jesus Christ the Chief Corner stone, we the elect stones are built up into a holy Temple in the Lord” (Hebrews 3:4; Ephesians 2:20-22). The kingdom of Satan on the other hand is typified early in Scripture by Cain who rejected revelation, killed his brother and went out of the presence of God to build a city of his own. Unlike the tents of Seth, Cain’s city was outwardly ostentatious, founded on the evil works of its ultimate ruler who comes to steal, kill and destroy. Masses of this world’s citizens pant after ten minutes in the illusion of Satan’s temporal kingdom built upon lust, violence, misery and sinful passions. But since it is not established on the Word of God it cannot endure and bears the seed of its own destruction with all of his subjects in the Lake of Fire.

When Satan offered Jesus the kingdoms of this world, our Lord was not tempted, knowing He was heir to all things, and in the proper time reign as King of kings over a glorious domain where neither sin, death nor any offense can enter. That Kingdom was seen in visions symbolizing its various stages of development. Daniel saw it as a Stone cut without hand that grew into a mountain that filled the whole earth. This Kingdom cannot be shaken and will not pass away. Since the fall, all of Adam’s race has awaited the momentous occasion when our Kinsman Redeemer would regain the Original Title Deed of all that Adam forfeited and restore His creation to glorious perfection.

Jesus Messiah satisfied God’s requirements when He paid redemption’s price at Calvary. And before ascending to heaven to begin His ministry as mediator in the office of Son of God, spent forty days on the earth. His resurrection from the dead ought to have inflamed faith and a sacred joy in the hearts of those early believers. yet before the Holy Fire and mighty rushing wind swept them into that Pentecostal experience, they struggled with issues that had to be purged from their minds. Reaching the sepulchre with spices to anoint the Lord’s body, the women saw two men in shining garments who asked, “Why seek ye the living among the dead?’ He is not here but is risen: remember how He spoke when He was yet in Galilee, saying, the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified and rise again the third day? And they remembered His Words” (Luke 24:1-8). With gladness and astonishment the women hastened from the tomb to bring these glad tidings to the disciples.

However His disciples were in a somber mood and believed not the joyous tidings of His resurrection but regarded the words of the women as “idle tales” (Luke 24:11), a condition that prevailed. Scripture records Peter saying, “I’ll go back to fishing,” so there was considerable misunderstanding as to what was really going on. Later that evening Cleophas and another brother were heading home to Emmaus, and as they communed and reasoned among themselves Jesus HIMSELF drew near and walked with them, but their eyes were holden and they could not recognize Him. Jesus applied the ‘Word Test,’ asking why they were so disheartened? Luke 24:17-24 tells us how the women witnessed that the Lord’s body was no longer in the tomb “and beside all this, today is the third day since these things were done.” The one thing that should have dispelled all doubt and raised in them an earnest expectation of meeting their risen Lord, troubled and caused them grief.

Then without identifying Himself, Jesus upbraided their unbelief, calling them “fools and slow of heart to believe all the prophets have spoken; affirming that Christ ought to have suffered all the things they acknowledged, and then enter into His glory. And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself” (Luke 24:25-27). That evening when He was revealed in the breaking of bread and their eyes were opened and they knew Him. May God bless the Bread of Life and as it is broken yet again, and our eyes are opened to see the Jesus.

Lest we point the finger at the scepticism of some early followers of this Message, a similar unscriptural belief prevails in certain quarters today. In the greatest and most triumphant time in the life of the elect Church, a homogenous lukewarm Laodicean spirit, clings like the oily tar and toxic sludge from the Gulf of Mexico to many who claim to be Bride. However, neither hopeful optimism nor religious psychology can put one in the rapture. Reciting the Scriptures and quoting the prophet is fine, but if all it takes to attain the body change and translate the Body of Christ to the Wedding Supper and to the millennium was to recite as wonderful a Scripture as John 3:16; God would have had no need to send Paul, the reformers and an end time prophet “to turn them from darkness to Light” in each of the Seven Church Ages.

Jesus’ own resurrection was realized by a definitive understanding of the Scriptures pertaining to Him. And He exercised an unprecedented measure of faith that ensured His soul did not remain in sheol, or His body see corruption. Similarly, no believer in this hour will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the Air because they really hope God will have pity and just take them up, or because they believe the purpose of ‘The Message’ is to announce that God sent a prophet at the end time. Our change and journey to the sixth dimension will take place in the midst of the greatest troubles on earth. Like Jesus, we’ll have to possess perfect understanding of that Word, and know what to do with It. We’ll share the testimony of Enoch that “we please God,” and nothing will be able to hold us back—not gravity, and certainly not death.

There are many indications in the news of the lateness of the hour and the darkness in men’s heart. But when not even “The Second Coming of Christ as a thief in the night” can fire sufficient excitement and enthusiasm to pierce the spirit of Laodicea over some in the circle of this Message who are supposed to believe the Bible, “Ichabod” is written all over them and the glory has departed. Recently I spoke with a denominational minister concerning the “Coming” of the Lord, who said he hoped this would not be too soon as it would spoil his plans of starting a new church, while a man who claims to follow this Message said that in order to avoid the horrors of the coming shaking, he hopes to die before the earthquake sinks Los Angeles. As in the parable of the sower in Matthew 13, our focus will not be on seed that fell by the wayside, neither that which fell on stony ground, nor those that were choked by the deceitfulness of riches and the cares of this life. Our focus will be on seed that fell on the good ground of a true and honest heart, which, having heard the Word of God and truly understood the mysteries Jesus said were given for them to know, brought forth fruit to perfection.

Years ago when I heard Brother Branham say Jesus spoke of the “Seals of Revelations” in the Gospels, it shook me because up to that time I had never imagined that those great hidden mysteries were in the Gospels. Like those first disciples my eyes were “holden” and I had not recognized the blessed Christ of glory, though Jesus Himself was there fully revealed. But thank God according to His Grace and the good pleasure of His will He has revealed Jesus through the simplicity of His Word.

In his sermon on the First Seal, Brother Branham emphasized several points essential to attaining a clear understanding of the revelation hidden under the symbols John saw. I would like to look into some of those things for our edification, with reference to that particular sermon.

One of the first thoughts he expresses has to do with Godhead and the person of God. Brother Branham said, “Now, as we study this chapter we are referring different places even to Old and New Testament alike, because the entire Book is “The Revelation of Jesus Christ.” That’s altogether the revelation of the Lord Jesus: “The Revelation of Jesus Christ.” It’s God revealing Himself in the Book, revealing Himself through Christ in the Book. And Christ is the revelation of God. He come to reveal God, because He and God were the same. “God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself”.

In other wise, you’d never knowed just what God was until He revealed Himself through Christ; then you can see. I used to think years ago that maybe God was angry with me, but Christ loved me. Come to find out, it’s the same Person. See? And Christ is the very heart of God” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 118:7 – 119:3).

Another subject of absolute importance is the rapture. Too many have not cleansed their souls of denominational errors and still see the rapture like the Adventist and other Evangelical and Pentecostal groups. They believe Gabriel will make a grand appearance in the skies one of these days, sound his trumpet to announce to the world the second Coming of Jesus, and the rapture will suddenly take place with Christians popping out of homes and cars or work places, floating up to meet the Lord like helium balloons, or something on that order. The Prophet warned that you’ll end up in the tribulation wondering, “Should not the rapture have happened first?” Let’s hear what he said.

“Now, those first three books is the first Seven Church Ages, and then we find out in the fourth chapter of Revelations John is caught up. See? We see the churches . . . There’s not too much said about the Church Ages. There’s where I think that people are going to be so surprised. They’re applying the Church way over into the tribulation to those things that’s a-happened. And as I said Sunday (yesterday), “The first thing you know those tribulations will break in, and you’ll wonder why was not the first Coming was the rapture. And it’ll be as it has been; it’s passed and you didn’t know it” (ibid. p. 119:4).

The rapture has been confused with the translation of saints in some of his sermons because the letter of the prophet’s word was taken without the Spirit. However, in his December 4, 1965 sermon entitled “The Rapture,” Brother Branham clearly states that his understanding on the rapture was different from what other preachers believed and that the rapture is a REVELATION. It is the supreme revelation of the fullness of the Word that catches our souls up in the Spirit into the Lord’s Day as typed by John in Revelation 4:1, for in Revelation 22 he is still on the Isle of Patmos. That three-fold process Paul mentions in I Thessalonians 4:16 encompasses the midnight cry of Matthew 25:6 and the Voice of the Archangel in intimate communion with the Bride, confirming the Message from Genesis to Revelation, and very soon the Trump of God that will break the half-hour silence in heaven and shake heaven and earth, calling the first resurrection—all three constitute the rapture.

One of the greatest miracles of all time, the rapture has been in process for the last 47 years. It is not a public show like the Prophet’s miraculous ministry in Laodicea, but rest assured believers with lame feet and twisted ankles have been strengthened and are walking and leaping and praising God; troubled hearts are healed, ears that were dull of hearing due to denominational wax now hear the Voice of the Bridegroom; those who were blind now see the revelation, while once malnourished souls now drink from the river of water of Life and feed from the storehouse of Spiritual food towering like Joseph’s granaries in Egypt. Brother Branham’s theme song, “Only Believe,” was not simply for the healing of cancers or toothaches—my brother and sister, it is to take us out of here.

Everything the prophet said was predestinated by the Spirit to sweep away man-made interpretations and do-it-yourself theology presuming to figure out the meaning of God’s Word. As in the Alpha Age when Jesus proclaimed He would build His Church on spiritual revelation from the Father, revelation by the Holy Spirit is the absolute “must have” in this Omega or Capstone Age of the end-time Bride that follows the sealing of the Church. This is made clear where our prophet said:

“And now, the Lamb is standing now tonight as we enter into this sixth chapter; He’s got the Book in His hand and starting to reveal it. And, oh, I would’ve absolutely today . . . And I hope that people are spiritual. I would’ve had a horrible mistake on that if it hadn’t been about twelve o’clock today when the Holy Spirit came in the room and corrected me on something that I was writing down to say. I was taking it from an old context. I had nothing on it. I don’t know what the Second Seal is no more than nothing, but I’d got some old contexts of something that I’d spoke on several years ago and wrote it down, and I’d gathered this context . . . And Dr. Smith, many great outstanding teachers that I’d gathered, and all of them believed that, so I’d wrote it down. And I was fixing to say, “Well, now I’ll study it from that standpoint.” And there about twelve o’clock in the day the Holy Spirit just swept right down into the room, and the whole thing just opened up to me, and there it was . . . of this First Seal being opened” (ibid. p. 122:2-3).

O bless the Lord! Do you see that? Brother Branham was a covenant prophet of a caliber and calling like none the world has seen since Enoch. His prophetic gift and discernment were mightily attested by all in his phenomenal ministry. Yet he said he would have made a horrible mistake EXCEPT the Holy Spirit came to him and CORRECTED him. That should serve as the ultimate warning for all who would presume to know the mind of God. We must wait upon the Lord to reveal Himself as He places His Voice in those He has ordained to rule and feed His flock. Matthew 16:13-24 well bears out this marvelous story.

“When Jesus came to the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say you are John the Baptist: some, Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets. He said to them, But whom do you say that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Jesus answered and said, Blessed are you, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood has not REVEALED this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I say to you, That you are Peter, and UPON THIS ROCK I will build My Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it”.

“The Lord gave him the keys of the Kingdom of heaven, the great authority to bind or loose things on earth and it would be honoured in heaven. He charged His disciples that they should tell no man that He was Jesus the Christ and began to show them how He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. . . Then Peter began to remonstrate with Him, saying, Heaven forbid! This will never happen to you, Lord. But Jesus turned, and told Peter, Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me: for you are thinking merely from a human viewpoint, not seeing God’s perspective. Then Jesus said to His disciples, If any man would come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me”.

We have to deny our own reasoning and intellectual capabilities and receive the kingdom as little children, because our Adversary is always on the attack, trying to displace faith with some kind of humanistic reasoning. The Bible also said, “In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for it seemed good in Your sight”.

How can we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? We can’t neglect this under any circumstances. God is faithful and able to bring to pass all He has promised. And we have the Scriptural promise that He who has begun a good work in you will carry it through to the end. Amen! And remember, we cannot have double speak or double mindedness where the Word of God is concerned.

“And if they heard the Truth and rejected the Truth, then what’s going to be said when the big thing’s spread across the canvas when even your own thoughts will be there, what you thought about it. How you going to escape, and it right there on the canvas of the skies; and God’s great television and there’s your own thoughts rebelling right . . . Your own thoughts will speak against you in that hour.

So if you speak one thing and think another, you better stop that. Get your thoughts on God. Keep them pure, and stay right there with it, and speak the same thing all the time. See? Don’t say, “Well, I’ll say I’ll believe it; but I’ll go find out.” You believe it. Amen” (ibid. p. 134:2b-3).

Who among us could ever afford not to possess rapturing faith and be clothed in the fine linen of the righteousness of saints at the first resurrection? God’s Word is faithful and true. It accomplishes all He has sent it to do. So what will hinder the righteous judgments that have been in store for this wicked and adulterous generation?

“Then all the judgments of these evil doers . . . Now, see, down through the Ages as these Seals has been breaking, until now the last Seal is broken. And now, as they have been watching in on these Seals and just presuming what they were doing, now at the end of the Ages, of the Church Ages, all these evil doers will take place and head up in the tribulation.

All of these evil doers of the Seven Seals has been working mysterious in the church, and we’ll find out in a minute, they even work in the name of a church. They call themselves the church. You just see if that isn’t right. No wonder I have been so against denomination, not knowing why. See, see?

They end up . . . Now, it starts back here in a mild form, just keeps getting worse and worse, on down until. . . And people go right into it, saying, “Oh, yes, this is just fine.” But in the last days these things are made known. And they finally go so bad until they go plumb into the tribulation period’ (ibid. p. 128:4-6).

Such is the awful price of tampering with the Word of God. No one can add to or take away from its holy precepts. And that thought is repeated, clear warning is given.

“Don’t Jesus speak the same thing when He said the sound come in the seventh watch? That’s the last Church Age. See? And said, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go out to meet Him.”

“And then the sleeping virgin come, rubbed her eyes, and said, “Suppose I ought to have some of that oil too; so maybe we’d better have some.”

And the real true Bride standing there said, “We have just got enough for ourself. We just got enough to get in ourself. We can’t give you nothing. If you want some, you go pray up.’

And while she was gone, the Bridegroom come (See?), and in went the Bride. And then them remnant there, the ones that were absolutely virtuous, the church was left outside. And He said, “There will be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. . . ”

All right. Notice, the rest of the dead, church members, lived not again until one thousand years was passed. The church members, the Christians, the church lived not again until the end of the thousand years, and then they come forth to stand before the Bride (That’s right), stand before the King and the Queen. Glory” (ibid. p. 132:2-7).

My brothers and sisters, to miss the Wedding Supper and spend that glorious thousand year honeymoon in the dust awaiting the second resurrection would be a tragedy raised to the 4th power. The sweetness and shear bliss of being in the presence of one saint, filled with the Spirit on this side of Eden could lift your soul to heights of glory that make living daily for Christ a blessing. Can you imagine being caught up into the august Presence of the Lord, His resplendent glory radiating out upon His people, resurrected saints on every hand, in bodies like His own glorious body? This prospect has to be more wonderful, exceeding all we can ask or think. Contemplate that joyous refrain singing the sweet songs of Zion? Jesus pronounced the blessing on “he who has part in the First Resurrection, on such the second death has no power.” What’s more, everything that’s needed to place us in the rapture is right here in the revealed Word.

“And then there’s coming forth seven mysterious thunders that’s not even written at all. That’s right. And I believe that through those Seven Thunders will be revealed in the last days in order to get the Bride together for rapturing faith; because what we got right now, we wouldn’t be able to do it. There’s something we’ve got to step farther; we can’t have enough faith for Divine healing hardly. We’ve got to have enough faith to be changed in a moment and be swept up out of this earth, and we’ll find that after a while, the Lord willing, find where it’s written” (ibid. p. 128:3).

Brother Branham’s early ministry was during the Great Depression, and we are now experiencing a worldwide recession that will shortly eclipse the Great Depression of 1929. This certain prospect and many other Scriptural signs are now a reality exactly as prophesied, so we have to redeem every moment. Heed the terse admonition of a man who preached the full counsel of God, telling us all he possibly could to get the Bride in order.

“What am I trying to say? I’m not trying to scare you, worry you. I want you to be on your toes. Be ready, watching, every minute. Quit your nonsense. Just get down to business with God, ’cause it’s later than you think.

Did I hear an “amen?” Praise God, for it is later than we think.

Even in the affairs of men, a seal, as in a sealed document, speaks of one marked with or certified authentic that makes it safe and secure and cannot be tampered with. It can only be opened by breaking or tearing the seal, by the person it is addressed to. We have many references to “seals” in the Bible and “sealed” Books or documents:

For example in Isaiah 29:11 we read, “The entire vision will be to you like the words of a sealed book, which when they give it to the one who is learned, saying, Please read this, he will say, I cannot, for it is sealed.”

And in Jeremiah 32:14, “Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Take these deeds, this sealed deed of purchase and this open deed, and put them in an earthenware jar, that they may last a long time”.

Again in Daniel 12:4: “But as for you, Daniel, shut up the Words and seal up the Book until the end of time; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased”.

The use of seals began at a time when writing was not common, but when every person of means possessed a coat-of-arms or other distinctive device. Great significance was attached to the use of seals as a means of distinguishing persons. With the spread of education, a person’s signature on an instrument replaced the seal, but in heaven the seal has retained its former dignity, God having placed greatest significance on its opening at the most strategic season, the time of the end.

We have seen in the Bible and in Newsletters #635 and #636, this Book which is the Original Title Deed forfeited by the first Adam, is in the right hand of Him that sat on the Throne. From before the foundation of the world it was most highly guarded, and kept safe in the repository of heaven. Perfectly sealed and under greatest secrecy, there was absolutely no possibility of human interpretation. The opening of the Book then was one of the greatest events in heaven.

“And I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne a Book written within and on the backside, sealed with Seven Seals. And I saw a strong Angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the Book, and to loose the Seals thereof? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the Book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the Book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders said to me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the Book, and to loose the Seven Seals thereof”.

Not only did no one know what was contained in its sacred scrolls, no man was worthy even to take the Book or to look thereon. I think of John the Baptist, that great messenger and forerunner of the first Coming, of whom Jesus testified, “Of men born of women, none was greater than John.” Yet speaking of Jesus John said, “there is One coming, who is mightier than I, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to loose”.

“No man in heaven, in the earth or under the earth, was worthy to even look on the Book.” O Lord! No wonder John wept much when the advertisement was first made. We get a picture here of the true sense of this intense sacred drama of redemption that was unfolding in heaven at that time. “But one of the Elders said, Weep not John, behold the Lion of the tribe of Judah has prevailed to open the Book and loose the Seven Seals thereof.” Hallelujah! The suspense broke and rapturous worship and praise erupted spontaneously. Then, from out of the midst of the throne ONE came forth to take the Book and loose the Seven Seals. He was the Lamb of God, slain from the foundation of the world. Glory! Glory! Glory!

Revelation 6:1-2: “And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the Seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four living creatures said, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.”

The Seals were opened with a mighty blast of thunder. The Voice that spoke on earth and shook this planet from a cross on mount Calvary insomuch that the rocks rent and the graves were opened, has thundered once again, this time from heaven. The rocks will again rent and Earth quake when the shaking of this Voice is complete in this hour, and both heaven and earth as we know them will pass away.

As the legal Owner He holds the Title Deed open in His hand, placing judgment on Roman beast from the sea and the Protestant beast from the Earth, asserting with a loud Voice His absolute Sovereignty.

In response, Seven Thunders utter their voices, echoing God’s assent to His royal decree, distinctly revealing the mystery of how He redeemed Adam’s righteous sons that constitute His Kingdom; who they are, their rank and station in the Kingdom, and how He will restore Earth to Edenic perfection and splendour. This alone, the revelation of the Voices of the Seven Thunders and the symbols under the Seals was the Message of the seventh angel.

Yet John did not hear the Lamb speak or preach the Word as he did in His earthly ministry; instead he heard one of the living creatures, a mighty throne guard saying, “Come and see” and when he looked, he saw the symbols that represent the mystery of that Seal.

Brother Branham said, “Talk about a jubilee, talk about a time when that Lamb walked forth . . . See, the Book’s even sealed in heaven, the mysteries are. Say, “Is my name there?” I don’t know; I hope it is. But if it is, it was put on the Book before the foundation of the world. But the first thing that represented that redemption, come the Lamb that had been slain from the foundation of the world. And He took the Book (Glory!) opened the Book, and tore off the Seals, and sent it down to the earth to His seventh angel to reveal it to His people. There you are. Oh, my, what happened? The screams, the shouts, the hallelujahs, hosannas, the glories, the manifestations . . .” (ibid. p. 111:7).

There you are indeed. All those smart preachers and teachers who figured they had a scholastic edge over the prophet and what they considered his theologically unsound preaching and poor grammar, dismissed him as the messenger of God. Well the ‘Ha’ is on them and those whose names have been blotted from the Book will learn to their utter loss what it is to be cast into outer darkness. The Lamb tore the Seals, opened the Book, and carried it down to earth for His seventh angel to reveal to His people. Let’s say Amen and shout hallelujah again. “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He reveals His secrets to His servants the prophets”.

It is so wonderful how God set His program and the ways He would fulfil His Word. It thins down the flock, you see, as only elected predestined seed can see the wisdom of His purpose and give the glory and worship due to His Name. Did not Paul in Acts 13 say, “Behold you despisers, and wonder and perish; behold I work a work in your day, a work you shall in no wise believe though a MAN declare it to you?”

Here is something very precious especially for younger believers and subscribers to this Newsletter. It’s found in the morning service of “The Spoken Word is the Original Seed” (p. 6:2), we have a marvelous formula if you will, for studying the Message:

“And then, if there be any questions that you don’t understand, I ask you to bring your books, and then you who have tape recorders can get the tapes, and put them in your home, and set down with an open heart—just an open heart. Just lay it out and say, “Lord, I’ve just relaxed now; I’m going to listen”; and then when you catch something, turn the recorder off and go get the Scripture. And the Bible said, Jesus said, “They are they that testify of Me.” See? And let’s look through the Scripture and see if it’s all right.”

And when we do go to the Scripture, the Word is right there for us. Revelation 10:7, “In the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He hath declared to His servants the prophets”.

Jesus told the disciples in that day that many great men and sages desired to see the things they saw but did not. Paul spoke of the mystery in Colossians 1:26-27, “Even the mystery which has been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to His saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory”.

What an honour it is to see these things, and not “through a glass darkly but face to face” by virtue of the prophet’s Message.

Here is where the seventh angel began to expound:

“Here’s the plan of it: The first thing happens, there is an announcement in the heavens first. What happened? A Seal is opened. What is that? A mystery is unfolded. See? And when a mystery unfolds, then a trumpet sounds. It declares a war. Or a plague falls, and a Church Age opened. See? What is the war part? The angel of the Church catches the mystery of God, not fully yet revealed, but when he does, he catches this mystery of God, and then he goes forth to the people (after the mystery has been given to him), goes forth to the people. What does he do out there? He begins to proclaim that Message, and what does it start? A war, a Spiritual war. And then God takes His messenger with the elect of that Age, and lays them away asleep, and then He drops a plague upon them who rejected it: a temporary judgment. And then, after that is over, then he goes on, and they denominate, and bring in denominations, and start off with that man’s work like of Wesley and all the rest of them, and then it gets all in a scrapple again; and then another mystery comes forth. Then what happens? Another messenger arrives on earth for a Church Age. See? Then when he arrives, the Trumpet sounds. He declares war. See? And then what happens? Finally then he’s caught away. And then when he’s laid away, then plague falls destroys them. Spiritual death hits the church and she’s gone, that group. Then He goes on to another one. Oh, it’s a great plan until it comes to that last angel. Now, he has no certain mystery, but he gathers up all that’s been lost in them other Ages, all the truths that wasn’t truly revealed yet (See?), as the revelation come. Then he reveals those things in his day. If you want to read it, there it is: Revelation 10:1-4 you get it? All right” (ibid p. 126:4 -127:3).

“Trumpets speaks of political disturbance: wars. Matthew 24, Jesus spoke of it. He said, “You’ll hear of wars and rumors of war . . .”

The First Seal of Revelation is also found in Matthew 24:4-5 where Jesus warned His disciples, “Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in My Name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.” Such is “the mystery of Iniquity” working within the framework of the Church. That is exactly what the Prophet revealed in the First Seal. That White Horse Rider was not Christ as so many eminent theologians sincerely but erroneously teach. At the first they could not know as the Book was sealed, but afterwards, when Christ had opened the Book and revealed its mystery through His Prophet, they were deceived, not believing him whom God had sent. Brother Branham left no stone unturned in revealing this mystery.

“Notice, the mystery. He’s coming, riding . . . There’s got to be something to change this Church, you know that. There’s got to be something. Notice. No man knowed but Himself. Now, notice, no man knowed but Hisself.

“And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His Name was called The Word of God. (Oh, notice). And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He tread the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He had on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS”.

There comes the Messiah. There He is, not this fellow on this horse back here. Watch the different. Here He stands with the Book in His hand here. The redemptive work is just . . . He hasn’t took His place yet.

So it was not the Christ that went forth, the Holy Spirit. Not disagreeing with them great men, no, sir, I don’t do it. I wouldn’t want to do that, but this is what my revelation of it is. See, if you got something different, well, that’s all right, but it ain’t all right with me. See, I believe it this way; you know what. See?

And notice, Christ is not seen any more (See?) from the time there. But He is on a white horse; so if this guy is riding a white horse, he’s only an impersonator of Christ. See? Get that? Notice, the rider on the white horse don’t have any name. He might use two or three titles, but he hasn’t got any name. But Christ has a Name. What is it? The Word of God. That’s what it is. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” And the Word made flesh. See?

The rider has no name, but Christ is called the Word of God. That’s what He is. He’s called that. Now, He’s got a Name that no man knows, but He’s called the Word of God. This guy isn’t called nothing (See?), but he’s on a white horse.

The rider has no arrows for his bow. Did you notice? He had a bow, but there’s nothing said about having any arrows; so he must be a bluffer. That’s right. Maybe he’s got a lot of thunder and no lightning, but you find out Christ had both lightning and thunder; for out of His mouth goes a sharp two-edged Sword, and He smites the nations. And this guy can’t smite nothing (See?), but he’s playing the part of a hypocrite. He’s going forth riding on a white horse, going out to conquer.

Christ has a sharp Sword, and watch. It comes from His mouth—the living Word. That’s the Word of God revealed to His servants, like He said to Moses: “Go, stand there and hold that stick out yonder, call for flies,” and there was flies. Sure. Whatever He said, He done it, and it come to pass. His living Word. . . God and His Word is the self same Person. God is the Word.

Who is this mysterious rider of the first Church Age then? Who is he? Let’s think of it. Who is this mysterious rider that starts forth in the first Church Age and rides plumb on out into eternity, goes to the end.

A white horse rider went out. See? Who is he? He’s mighty in his conquering power, is a great fellow in his conquering power. You want me to tell you who he is? He’s the antichrist. That’s exactly what he is.

Now, because, you see, if an antichrist. . . Jesus said that the two would be so close together until it would deceive the very elected, the Bride, if it was possible. Antichrist, it’s the antichrist spirit.

Notice, when Nicolaitia (See?), antichrist is finally. . . He’s incarnate in a man; then he’s crowned. When he starts off as a Nicolaitia spirit in the church, he’s a spirit. You can’t crown a spirit. But three hundred years later he become a pope. And then they crowned him. He had no crown to start with, but he got a crown later (See?), when that spirit become incarnate. See? He become a man. Nicolaitane doctrine become a man; then they could crown it. They couldn’t do it because he was just a doctrine. Glory.

Notice, and when this Holy Spirit that we have, becomes incarnate to us, the One that’s in our midst now in the form of the Holy Ghost, becomes incarnate to us in the Person of Jesus Christ, we’ll crown Him King of kings . . . ? . . . That’s right. See” (ibid. p. 161:5)?

Satan began his incarnation from the antichrist spirit to the false prophet back when the church was still primarily Jewish. Very soon at the Seventh Trump and close of the Gentile dispensation he will be cast out of the heavens and incarnate the Pope of Rome to rule the first stage of the New World Order. The squeeze will come down heavily and after a short but powerful ministry we who are alive and remain will be changed in the atoms and be caught up to meet the Lord with all our New Testament brethren.

This is war my brother or sister, and the Devil is taking a beating because revelation by the Holy Spirit renders Him powerless. The only people who would not rejoice in this mighty showdown are those on the Enemy’s losing side. That white horse rider was Satan and He has fooled men for a long time into believing he is the Christ. But under the First Seal, Jesus blew His cover and exposed his plans which are to build a New World Order: “Mystery, Babylon the Great, a cage of every unclean and hateful bird—ruled by a priest-king—an incarnate pope of Rome worshipped by all whose names are not in the Lamb’s Book of Life” (Revelation 13:1-8; 18:2).

Satan attempted his plan many times under Old Testament. After deceiving Eve and polluting the human race, he built his prototype kingdom in Babel, where his ancient priest-king Nimrod ordered secular and religious affairs, but God scattered that unregenerate rabble at the Tower. Then he build Great Babylon which became his earthly seat and the first of four Gentile world empires. But as we read in the Church Ages, Satan’s seat relocated to Pergamos. Finally all the sin and uncleanness, wickedness and iniquity accumulated since the Fall became concentrated in a universal church empire called “Mystery, Babylon the Great.” Like the Kingdom of God it rules from within—not from the heart by faith—but from the head by intellectual reasoning against the revealed Word.

This is consummate revelation, nothing can escape Him who has eyes like a flame of Fire. God has revealed all the subtle moves and nuances Satan employs, so it is not possible for him to deceive the elect. By divine revelation the Holy Spirit frees us from the creeds, dogma and rituals of the Judeo-Roman Catholic church, her once Protestant daughters and the lewdness of Talmudic Judaism.

Since Satan does not change his spots, his motives at the end-time are what they were in Genesis—to disarm believers by disinformation and misinformation. As TRUTH sets God’s people free, propaganda and deceit enslaves his people, and God will visit those surrendered to Satan’s power with a strong delusion, making them believe Satan’s lie and be damned by it (II Thessalonians 2:1-12).

Stay away from the trickery of the wild untamable beast, everything in His kingdom ends in death. When the Devil-incarnate Serpent approached Eve, he did not deny God’s Word, he was 99.9% on the Word, enticing the woman with that 0.01% of added knowledge. “You’ll be wise, you’ll be the first with a PhD in education. Oh, you’ll be like God too; and since God is so loving and cuddly, you will not surely die if you add just one word to what He has said in order to follow this illuminated path and fulfill His command to “multiply and fill the earth.” Satan acted as God’s high priest and proceeded to impart knowledge God had not revealed to His prophet Son Adam. Aside from adding the three letter word “not” to what God had said, he quoted Him faithfully. But as the Prophet taught us, one word off is the kingdom of Satan, and Death.

We find the same admonition in II Thessalonians 2:1-3, “Regarding the ‘parousia’ Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we beg you, brethren, don’t become unsettled in your minds, or anxious by some pretended revelation of the Spirit, by word, or by letter allegedly from us implying that the day of the Lord has already arrived. Let no man deceive you in any way: for that day shall not come, unless there is an apostasy first, and that man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition” (I Timothy 4:1).

The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy, and since all the New Testament speaks of THIS HOUR, that prophecy was especially given for THIS DAY.

Let No Man Deceive You! Under the First Seal the controversy about the Name of God was once and for all time also settled. It was not JVHU or Jehovah or anything the scholars came up with. In this dispensation it is Lord Jesus Christ, that glorious Name from whom the whole Family in heaven and earth is named. And as a Bride takes the name of her husband the Name of Christ’s Bride is Mrs. Lord Jesus Christ.

Let No Man Deceive You! The money is gone the world is bankrupt. The bailouts for US banks and European countries is all part of the strong delusion to entrap sinners. Our Lord long ago admonished us to lay up our treasure in heaven where thieves cannot break in and steal and moth cannot corrupt. Here on earth under the leadership of ‘the City,’ thieves run the Fed and World Central Banks who leach the value out of currencies and impoverish nations. The Prophet foretold a depression that will be far worse that the Great Depression engineered by the international banksters. Its onset has been front page news for two years, and recovery is not imminent. The meltdown has not yet begun in earnest.

The Prophet has gone, there is no other Message to come. We can’t go back to fishing or any of our chosen pastimes. We must hold to God’s unchanging Word. Christ revealed God’s Absolute in the revelation of the Seals, which will take us through the remaining moments of time as we know it and into eternity. The process has begun (Revelation 4:1). The Lord will reveal more and more of Himself in the eternal age to come as His elect feed directly from the Tree of Life.

That Something required to change the people of God has been with us for the last 47 years. It is the Presence of Him who has “healing in His wings,” who imparts “the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Himself to enlighten the eyes of our understanding so we may know what is the hope of His calling, and what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and how overwhelmingly great is His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power” (Malachi 4:2, Ephesians 1:17-19). nl639.htm

FEMA: Plans to Evacuate Tampa Bay Area in Place?

June 27, 2010 — FEMA has plans to evacuate the Tampa Bay area in the event of a controlled burn of surface oil in the Gulf of Mexico, or if wind or other conditions are expected to take toxic fumes through Tampa Bay, according to a report by Maryann Tobin in the Hernando County Political Buzz Examiner. . . Full story: salem-news.com

As you know, the oil leaks in the Gulf have sent underwater plumes of toxic crude with benzene, hydrogen sulfide and methane in it to our coasts. This crude is made aromatic by even more toxic Corexit dispersants so that it evaporates and blows ashore, rains ashore, or can be dropped ashore by hurricanes. Health hazards from crude oil include contamination of drinking water and the possible evacuation of residents of the Gulf Coast. Full story: sciencecorps.org

We have found out from police and military insiders that martial law and evacuations are planned by the government when the toxic and explosive gases from these plumes on the coast reach 14% in the atmosphere. Last I knew, this had already reached 6%-7% in southeast Louisiana and has made many sick. Their worst case projection for the 14% saturation on the Gulf coast was June 15-20, and on the East coast July 1-10. I doubt that this will happen by then but the military is constantly checking the saturation rate along the coast and they don’t tell us what it is. For some time the Lord, Who is in control of the winds, had been sending them from the north and kept the crude and Corexit smell mostly off the Florida coast. A few days ago, I smelled it as I walked around a few blocks, then didn’t smell it anymore. I thought I was imagining things until I felt the crud in my chest the next day. The lack of smell could have been the hydrogen sulfide working. Many have not smelled it here but some are having all the symptoms of it: headaches, nausea, coughing, congestion, weakness/tiredness, etc., Full story: tribulation-now.com; youtube.com</a< Part II.

New Madrid FaultNew Orleans independent geologist Jack M. Reed believes the origin of earthquakes along the New Madrid seismic zone lie beneath the Gulf of Mexico. The New Madrid Fault extends from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes (click on image to enlarge). A retired Texaco geologist-geophysicist who has been studying the region’s geology for over 40 years, Reed says the accepted theory of a quiet geologic evolution of the Gulf of Mexico Basin is fundamentally flawed and needs to be revised. According to him, the Gulf was and is tectonically active—and is the likely origin for not only the New Madrid seismic activity, but also for the Middleton Place-Summerville seismic zone near Charleston, S.C. There is an apparent connection of the New Madrid seismic zone with the Gulf rift features to the south. This northeast trending earthquake zone appears to connect with the northeast trending Monroe Uplift, the La Salle Arch and, possibly, to an active seismic zone located in and around Sabine Lake on the Texas-Louisiana border. . . If the New Madrid seismic zone is indeed part of a triple juncture, he continued, there should be an expression of this limb trending along a line in a northeast direction. . .”

“This entire zone through the United States is suffering some type of tectonic activity that I believe is tied to the deeply buried tectonics in the Gulf of Mexico. . . The earthquakes in the New Madrid seismic zone and other locations along the theorized rift zone that cuts across the United States as well as the Middleton Place-Summerville seismic zone in South Carolina are tied to the tectonic movement in the Gulf of Mexico Basin,” he said.

So, the obvious question for Reed is, what’s the exploration potential of this rift zone that cuts through North America? “Not much,” Reed conceded. “However, if you want waterfront property you should buy land around Indianapolis. In a couple of million years this acreage could be overlooking the Strait of America that separates western (and) eastern America”! Full story: aapg.org

Comment: Brother Branham said, when Los Angeles sinks, “waves will shoot plumb out to the state of Kentucky. And when it does, it’ll shake the world so hard that everything on top of it will shake down” (A Thinking Man’s Filter, p. 25:145). This seems to indicate the San Andreas Fault might trigger activity along the New Madrid Fault. Furthermore he said, “here on the [Florida] coast, which we know will someday go beneath the ocean, and there won’t be a stone left upon another” (Christ is Identified the Same, #64-0415). The map shows a faultline runs from the La Salle Arch beneath the New Madrid Fault in the Gulf, cuts through Florida and continues to Charleston in South Carolina. See Newsletters #nl212, #245,#392, and #394 in which links refer to warnings by British, Russian and US scientists in 2005 that the Great Lakes are heating up and the New Madrid fault is “coiling up like a spring—at a rate comparable to the San Andreas Fault.” Also see, #420.

Interestingly, the Russian scientists observed that the Atlantic sea bed is rising, and Mr. Reed observed “doming” in the New Madrid seismic region and in the Gulf into which BP has drilled. Should the US deploy a bomb to seal the oil flow, could it excite the New Madrid Fault? Authorities were well-aware of seismic forces and geological anomalies in the Gulf and their utility in a ‘false flag’ op.

“US Geological Survey seismologist Lucy Jones remembers attending an emergency training session in August 2001 with the Federal Emergency Management Agency that discussed the three most likely catastrophes to strike the United States.
First on the list was a terrorist attack in New York. Second was a super-strength hurricane hitting New Orleans. Third was a major earthquake on the San Andreas fault.”

“Now that the first two have come to pass, she and other earthquake experts are using the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Katrina as an opportunity to reassess how California would handle a major temblor” (latimes.com).

Two out of three. ‘Well-connected’ and prescient, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) who ‘handled’ the 9/11 report and Hurricane Katrina, is always ahead of the game with over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. All are staffed and surrounded by full-time guards, and all are empty. F.D. Roosevelt assured us that “If something happens in politics, you can bet [that in this wicked and adulterous generation] it was planned that way”.


How I wish I was Wrong

June 25, 2010 — Those who determine every step of the worst enemy of humanity—United States imperialism, a mixture of ignoble material interests, disdain and underestimation for other people inhabiting the planet—have calculated everything with mathematical precision. . .

Fanaticism for sport is growing incessantly, captivating hundreds or millions and possibly billions of people all over the planet. On the other hand, one would have to ask how many of them know that, since June 20, US military vessels, including the Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier, escorted by one or more nuclear submarines and other warships with missiles and cannons that are more powerful that those of the old battleships utilized in the last world war from 1939 to 1945, have been navigating toward Iranian coasts via the Suez Canal.

The yanki naval forces are accompanied by Israeli military boats, with equally sophisticated armaments, to inspect every vessel that leaves to export and import commercial products required for the functioning of the Iranian economy. . . Today, in 2010, after 31 years, both the United States and Israel are underestimating the one million soldiers in the Iranian Armed Forces and their capacity for fighting on land, and the air, sea and land forces of the Revolutionary Guards.

In addition to these, there are the 20 million men and women, aged from 12 to 60, selected and systematically trained by its diverse military institutions, from out of the 70 million people who inhabit the country. . . Full story: Fidel Castro


Crisis and whispers

June 11, 2010 — The ultimate aim is to oblige the Europeans to enter into an Atlantic bloc, i.e. an empire where Anglo-American budgetary deficits would be automatically financed through the expedient of a dollarised euro. The agreement concluded between the European Union and the IMF, giving the Fund partial oversight of Union economic policies, is a first step in this direction. . .

By way of a provisionary conclusion, if the EU, facing crisis, advances at forced march towards central economic control, a stage will be reached whereby quasi-discretionary power will be granted to the European Commission—for the most part composed of non-elected technocrats and recruits—for a stainless Atlanticist allegiance. To put it plainly, this will signify the obliteration of the European nation states.

In reality, nothing can prevent the integration of Europe within a trans-Atlantic Bloc. In the end, the merging of the euro with the dollar will accelerate the union of the old world and the new world. This conclusion is evidently not a matter of pure speculation but a simple projection of the architectonic tendencies visibly at work in the framework of a process of redistribution or of geopolitical recomposition of the global map. Sufficient to say that if the euro zone does not break apart, the fate of the European peoples seems definitely sealed, tied for better or worse to the manifest destiny of the United States. And this irrespective of a ‘reform’ of the global economic system.

The financiers will perhaps get their fingers burnt if the international community agrees to curb their appetites in regulating the markets, but the fact remains that the promoters of constructive chaos will have won this hand as they set out to recreate the conditions for new conflagrations.

The worse case scenario, often evoked in France by such influential men as Bernard Kouchner and Jacque Attali, happens to be the least improbable at a time when governments, backs to the wall, see themselves condemned to fleeing headlong into the unknown. In Kuwait in 1991, in Iraq in 2003 among the thinly disguised objectives of war, the boosting of the economic machinery through plans of reconstruction was high on the list. Not to mention other more flagrant and immediate interests such as fossil fuels, arms sales and all the related industries.

Whatever the accords between Turkey and Iran on uranium enrichment for medical purposes, whatever the related diplomatic annoyance for the State Department, it suffices to re-read the fabulist Jean de la Fontaine to know that the rhetoric of the wolf always prevails over that of the lamb! In a situation of extreme fragility of the global economy, one must await an end to the crisis at the harrowing door of the chaos constructor. . . Full story: voltairenet.org

‘Black Bloc’ as fraudulent as Al Qaeda and G20 SCAM

June 27, 2010 — Toronto is right now in the midst of a massive government/media propaganda fraud. As events unfold, it is becoming increasingly clear that the ‘Black Bloc’ are undercover police operatives engaged in purposeful provocations to eclipse and invalidate legitimate G20 citizen protest by starting a riot. Government agents have been caught doing this before in Canada.

At the ‘Security and Prosperity Partnership’ meeting protests at Montebello Quebec on August 20, 2007, a Quebec union leader caught and outed three masked undercover Quebec Provincial Police operatives dressed as ‘black bloc’ protestors about to start a riot by throwing rocks at the security police. See the following videos documenting this event. . .

Canadian Police provacateurs inciting riot at 2010 TorontoG20In classic covert counterinsurgency strategy these agents manipulate the group to commit violent acts which play directly into hidden government controllers’ hands. These controllers manipulate public opinion from behind the scenes through the commission of false flag acts of violence (these are acts falsely blamed on scapegoats other than those concealed perpetrators who are actually responsible). The psychological operation (psyop) is then accomplished through the propaganda fulminations of the completely controlled and complicit mass media. As in so many similar situations in so many other countries in the past, the goal of this combination of violent acts and lying media propaganda is to invalidate any legitimate citizen protest of the many immoral acts being wreaked upon the peoples of the world by our governments. The techniques of imperial control which have been used so successfully overseas are now being fully deployed against the people at home. Deployed against us. As far as our war-addicted governments are concerned, we are all insurgents now. Full story: globalresearch.ca

Comment: Image: Canadian undercover Police provacateur inciting riot by destroying and setting Police car aflame this week. The notion the (once) Christian West is “democratic” is absurd; like (once) Great Britain we are pawns of that alien Talmudic golem, the ‘City of London’.


When False Flags won’t Fly

April 19, 2010 — Those who have studied history know that nothing invigorates and empowers an authoritarian regime more than a spectacular act of violence, some sudden and senseless loss of life that allows the autocrat to stand on the smoking rubble and identify himself as the hero. It is at moments like this that the public—still in shock from the horror of the tragedy that has just unfolded before them—can be led into the most ruthless despotism: despotism that now bears the mantle of “security.”

Acts of terror and violence never benefit the average man or woman. They only ever benefit those in positions of power. . . The Russians are learning how the FSB was caught planting bombs in Moscow in the 1990s during a terror scare that swept Putin into power and stirred the public into supporting the Second Chechen War. They are learning how their autocratic ex-President came to power campaigning on the graves of those his old FSB cronies had killed.

The Israelis are learning how Mossad has been caught time and again posing as the very Muslim terrorists they claim to be opposing. . . The British are learning how their SAS officers were caught dressing up as Arabs in Iraq, driving around with trucks full of munitions, shooting at police to stir up ethnic tensions and insure that permanent bases could be built in the region. They are learning how Haroon Aswat, the supposed mastermind behind the 7/7 bombings, was working for British Intelligence. . .

The Indians are learning how the Mumbai attack was helped by an US Agent who is cooperating with investigators so that he won’t face questioning by foreign authorities.

The Canadians are learning how their own provincial police dressed up as protestors in 2007 and threatened violence against other police in order to force a crackdown on peaceful protests. . . And the Americans are learning that there were multiple bombs found, dismantled and taken out of the Alfred P. Murrah building on April 19, 1995. They are learning that Timothy McVeigh had written a letter to his sister in which he claimed to be in the Special Forces for the US Army. They are learning the bombing was being directed by FBI informants, just as the 1993 World Trade Center bombing was. They are learning about 9/11 and the Gulf of Tonkin and Operation Northwoods and their own Army Counterinsurgency Manuals that teach officers how to commit false flag attacks to blame on their enemies.

In short, the people are learning the truth. . . They are not terrorists for pointing out that the FBI and the CIA and Mossad and MI6 are behind every major terrorist event. Full story: corbettreport.com see video

General McChrystal misses His Chance

June 27, 2010 — Why didn’t General Stanley McChrystal just tell Ol’bummer that he would come back from Afghanistan to the White House as soon as Obama sent McChrystal his (Obama’s) birth certificate proving that he (Obama) was an American citizen and therefore rightfully occupying the office of President?

This would have caused a constitutional crisis—but the kind of constitutional crisis we desperately need. . . since Ol’bummer cannot produce his birth certificate, and since he is sitting in the White House, he is being protected by very powerful forces—forces which can control and contain the US Supreme Court, many lower courts, the state government of Hawaii, the five Big TV Networks, and on and on.

The military men, Sheriffs, police chiefs, deputies and policemen exhibit unquestioned PHYSICAL courage. . . What is needed from our nation’s military leaders, police chiefs, and Sheriffs—is some MORAL AND INTELLECTUAL COURAGE. They need to speak out against the takeover and take-down of our country NOW. This is where McChrystal missed his chance.

In case they have all missed it, we are under occupation government by the Rothschild/FED/Goldman Sachs banking powers working with the organized Jewish/Israeli Lobby, such as AIPAC, ADL, etc., OL’BUMMER is the current top agent, hit man, and puppet for the Elite behind the FED/Goldman Sachs cabal in their war to take over total control of the USA.

Comment: Council on Foreign Relations founding father Edward Mandel House had set down his political ideas in his book called “Philip Dru: Administrator” in 1912. In this book House laid out a thinly fictionalized plan for conquest of America by establishing “Socialism as dreamed by Karl Marx.” He described a “conspiracy,” the word is his, which succeeds in electing a US President by means of “deception regarding his real opinions and intentions.” Among other things, House wrote that the conspiracy was to insinuate “itself into the primaries, in order that no candidate might be nominated whose views were not in accord with theirs.” Elections were to become mere charades conducted for the bedazzlement of the booboisie. The idea was to use both the Democrat and Republican parties as instruments to promote World Government.

In 1919 House met in Paris with members of a British “secret society” called The Round Table in order to form an organization whose job it would be to propagandize the citizens of America, England and Western Europe on the globes of World Government. The big selling point, of course was “peace.” The part about the Insiders establishing a world dictatorship quite naturally was left out (Gary Allen, None Dare Call it Conspiracy, Ch. 5, Establishing the Establishment).

Council on Foreign Relations members have unlawfully and knowingly combined, conspired, and agreed to substantially contribute to the establishment of one world order under the direction and the control of members of Council on Foreign Relations, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, The Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg group and members of their branch organizations in various nations throughout the world. That is totalitarianism on a global scale.


‘Carbon Tax’–Signpost to the New Dark Age

June 29, 2010 — Big governments love carbon taxes. They promise a bountiful political dividend of tax receipts and green votes. Carbon produces heat, light, food and transport for the modern world. A carbon tax will inevitably reduce the production of these essentials—it is a signpost on the road to a new dark age.

  • The tax harvest will feed the climate change industry, provide eternal corporate welfare for alternate energy speculators, and allow politicians to buy votes with handouts for favoured mendicants.
  • But a carbon tax will have zero beneficial effect on earth’s temperature.
  • Carbon taxes will be welcomed by the solar/wind lobby. But the world now has plenty of real experiments proving the inability of these follies to generate reliable power at reasonable cost—Spain, Portugal, Germany, Denmark and California.

Everyone knows that if you tax something, less of it will be produced. Here are the facts:

The Danish wind industry is a strong export industry, and this makes a direct comparison with Obama’s plan difficult with regard to actual job creation in the wind industry. It seems highly unlikely that large country’s wind industry such as the US—having a population of more than 50 times the population of Denmark—would be able to replicate the Danish share of exports of wind turbine technology. In that way a US expansion is expected to be predominantly domestic, and at the same time the industry is probably going to face foreign competition from companies such as Vestas, Siemens and new low cost producers in countries like India. Based on the Danish experiences with wind power, subsidies to wind need to be significant or corresponding taxes on carbon-based electricity need to be increased substantially. The Danish experience also suggests that a strong US wind expansion would not benefit the overall economy. It would entail substantial costs to the consumer and industry, and only to a lesser degree benefit a small part of the economy, namely wind turbine owners, wind shareholders and those employed in the sector.

Comment: Britain’s biggest wind farm companies are to be paid NOT to produce electricity when the wind is blowing. Energy firms will receive thousands of pounds a day per wind farm to turn off their turbines because . . . the ‘intermittent’ nature of wind makes such farms unreliable providers of electricity. that electricity customers are paying more than £1 billion a year to subsidise wind farms and other forms of renewable energy.

The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change misled the press and public into believing that thousands of scientists backed its claims on manmade global warming, according to Mike Hulme, a prominent climate scientist and IPCC insider. The actual number of scientists who backed that claim was “only a few dozen experts,” he states in a paper for Progress in Physical Geography, co-authored with student Martin Mahony.

“Claims such as ‘2,500 of the world’s leading scientists have reached a consensus that human activities are having a significant influence on the climate’ are disingenuous,” the paper states unambiguously, adding that they rendered “the IPCC vulnerable to outside criticism “by their fruits you shall know them”.


The Sinking of the Titanic

The greatest tragedies in the last two hundred years can be traced to the Jesuits. . . The Jesuits desperately wanted another central bank in America so that they would have a bottomless reservoir from which to draw money for their many wars and other hideous schemes around the world.

RMS TitanicThere were a number of very rich and powerful men who made it abundantly clear that they were not in favor of the Federal Reserve System. J.P. Morgan was ordered by the Jesuits to build the Titanic. This ‘unsinkable’ ship would serve as the death ship for those who opposed the Jesuits’ plan for a Federal Reserve system. . . Three of the richest and most important of these were Benjamin Guggenheim, Isador Strauss, the head of Macy’s Department Stores, and John Jacob Astor. . . These three men were coaxed and encouraged to board the floating palace. They had to be destroyed because the Jesuits knew they would use their wealth and influence to oppose a Federal Reserve Bank as well as the various wars that were being planned. . . Many interesting points about the Titanic are discussed in a videotape made by National Geographic in 1986, “The Secrets of the Titanic”. . .

Comment: The above article was sourced from an Adventist website, a movement begun in 1816 by Baptist lay preacher William Miller who proclaimed Christ would return in 1843. The (Rothschild-financed) Watchtower Society, better known as Jehovah’s Witnesses, formed as a breakaway group in 1879, continues its apocalyptic projections. Its founder Charles Taze Russell, Knights Templar (33o Mason, adulterer, and according to his wife, Satanist and pedophile), identified himself as the Laodicean Messenger.

According to Encyclopedia Judaica Rothschilds bear the title Guardians of the Vatican Treasury. “The appointment of Rothschild gave the black papacy absolute financial privacy and secrecy. Who would ever search a family of orthodox Jews for the key to the wealth of the Roman Catholic Church? I believe this appointment explains why the House of Rothschild is famous for helping nations go to war. It is fascinating that, as Meyer Rothschild’s sons grew into the family business, the firm took on the title Meyer Amschel Rothschild und Sohne, which gives us the notariqon MARS. Isn’t Mars the Roman God of War, whose heavenly manifestation is “the red planet”? There is powerful cabalah here, and there’s hardly an acre of inhabitable earth that hasn’t been affected by it in some way” (Tupper Saussy, Rulers of Evil. p. 160-161; Newsletter #171).

With the exception of Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Cuba, and Libya, all countries are “managed” by a Rothschild-controlled central bank. Do you seriously believe North Korea was responsible for sinking the South Korean corvette, Cheonan? Or do you still to ponder why the US has threatened peaceful Iran, Sudan, Cuba and Libya? The Talmudic Jesuits through whom Rothschild revived the Illuminati, is a Jewish organization that controls the Roman Catholic church organized by Judaics at the Hegelian dialectic of the First Nicea Council. Britain’s Jewish Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli wrote, “Governments do not govern, but merely control the machinery of government, being themselves controlled by the hidden hand”.


The First
Seal

God’s first Bible was the Witness of the Stars, His second is the Bible in Stone which records the same prophecies in the Great Pyramid; thirdly He published this Revelation in the more portable form of paper and ink. Three signifies completion, but in each Bible version the fullness of the revelation, thus the realization of redemption, was sealed to the end-time.

SphinxAdjacent to and much older than the Great Pyramid is the Sphinx, an immense sculpture with the head of a woman and the body of a lion, it is a type of the Seven Seals, which are the key that unlocks the mystery of God’s written Word as the Sphinx is the key that shows us how to read the Gospel in the Stars. Both Bibles commence redemption’s story with Virgo, the virgin woman through whom our Kinsman Redeemer came into this world, and both end with Leo, the Lion who claimed the Book of Redemption, loosed its Seals and introduced Christ to His end-time Bride through the Prophet-Messenger to the Seventh Church Age (Matthew 25:6). On the Sphinx the Virgin faces due East, whence Christ will return to raise and glorify her together with the New Testament saints for the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the Sky. When Leo reunites with Virgo in the Zodiac, we will rise. Hallelujah, we will rise!

“On that bright and cloudless morning when the dead in Christ shall rise,
And the glory of His resurrection share;
When His chosen ones shall gather to their home beyond the skies,
And the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there. . . ”

The name “Sphinx” derived from the Greek ‘sphíngo,’ meaning “to draw tight.” From the foundation of the world it sealed the full import of the stellar Bible as the Seven Seals bound the Revelation of Jesus Christ unto the time of the end. And although Caliph Ali Mamoun broke into the Great Pyramid in AD825, enabling Christians in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to study its mathematical, astronomical and prophetical facts—mysteries sealed before the Great Flood by its builder, Enoch—we were not able to accurately ‘read’ the Stone Bible until it was capped by the revelation of the Seven Thunders, which are the mysteries that bound God’s third Bible. Isaiah 19:19-20 says it “will be for a sign and for a witness to the Lord of Hosts . . . in the day of the Lord,” for it foretells the history of mankind from Earth to Glory.

As God’s three Bibles were all “shut up and sealed to the time of the end,” the “end-time” commenced with the opening of the Seven Seals as we studied in the previous two Newsletters (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 5:7-9; 10:4; 1:3; 22:10). That took place in March, 1963, and “The Revelation of the Seven Seals” is available here.

In the tenth year of king Zedekiah, which was about 588BC, Nebuchadnezzar besieged Jerusalem. The overthrow of the kingdom was prophesied and the epoch of the “desolations” certain to all who were not blinded. In fact it was a time like the overthrow of our apostate (once) Christian civilization today. On account of his prophecy of inevitable ruin, Jeremiah was held a prisoner in the court occupied by the guard, where his friends might visit him. He received a Divine revelation, which announced that the field of his uncle Shallum of Anathoth in Benjamin would be offered to him to purchase as his kinsman redeemer. Sure enough, Shallum’s son Hanameel offered him the land. Recognizing the hand of the Lord Jeremiah carefully observed all the legal formalities and purchased the field to certify the Judeans their future return from Babylon.

God promised more than the restoration of “houses and fields and vineyards,” He spoke of Messiah’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel and a future restoration in Daniel’s Seventieth Week more universal than that from Babylon (Jeremiah 16:15). “I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in My anger, and in My fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again to this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely: and they will be My people, and I will be their God: I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may reverence Me for ever, for the good of them and their children after them: and I will make an everlasting Covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from Me. Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with My whole heart and with My whole soul” (Jeremiah 32:39-41).

Jeremiah was a type of Israel’s rejected Messiah, Jesus Christ, God’s “earthen vessel” in which “this evidence of purchase was placed—both that which was sealed, and that which was open, until the day of redemption”
(Ephesians 4:30), or “until the day that the Book of Redemption has been revealed, and the Redeemer comes to claim His possession” (William Branham, The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 78:4). “That which was open,” types the written Word of God’s three Bibles, while “that which was sealed” is the original containing an abstract of all occupiers of the land from its conquest and allotment in the days of Joshua and the time of the Jubilee. It types the Seven Thunders which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals that have bound the mysteries of God’s three Bibles until 1963.

When Christ loosed the unwritten Seventh Seal (Revelation 8:1) it revealed the spoken Word of the previous Six Seals. Redemption was over, Christ was no longer Mediator, He was King of Kings and Judge. Revelation 10 declared His second or ‘parousia’ Coming in W_O_R_D form with the Book of Redemption open in His hand. Then He set His right foot in judgment upon Papal Rome, the beast from the Sea, and His left foot in judgment upon the United States of America, the image of Imperial Rome, and Seven Thunders revealed their mystery through the prophet of Revelation 10:7, to call His end-time Bride out of Babylon to be filled with the Spirit “in the unity of the faith” for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.

As we have explained in the past, John represents Christ’s end-time Bride throughout the Book of Revelation, because the Book was sealed from the foundation of the world until Christ revealed it to His angel, William Branham (Revelation 1:1; 10:4-7). So wherever John speaks of himself he is speaking as each and every member of Christ’s end-time Bride because the Book was sealed until the time of the end, which is our day, so it is revealed to us alone.

Revelation 6:1-2, “As . . . . your name here . . . . watched, the Lamb opened one of the Seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, Come! And I saw a white horse, and its rider had a bow; and a crown was given to him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer”.

Symbolically, man severed from God and resting on his physical or intellectual strength or material resources, is beastly and brutish. He is only manly when Godly, for man was made in the image of God. So when envying the prosperous wicked, Asaph describes himself “as a beast before God” (Psalm 73:22).
“Despite his pomp, without Spiritual revelation man is like the beasts that perish” (Psalm 49:12). “Those who walk after the flesh in the lust of defiling passion. . . are like brute beasts that are naturally born to be caught and killed” (II Peter 2:10, 12).

The four beasts arising from the multitudes surrounding the Mediterranean or “great” sea represent the four successive Gentile world empires “whereupon the four winds [war and strife] strove,” and whose evil attributes are cumulative such that Rome, the “beast” of Revelation 11, 13 to 17, 19 and 20, is a combination of all their sensual, lawless, God-opposing features. The Roman empire that first persecuted Christians at the instigation of Israel and the self-styled Edomite Jews, will finally persecute and martyr the 144,000 elect Israelites.

The kingdom of Messiah supplanting utterly the former will be eternal and worldwide (Daniel 2:35, 44). The four cherubim of Revelation 4 and 5 are not
“beasts” as the KJV identifies them, but “living creatures” (Gk. ‘Zoon’), God’s Throne guards, who represent Christ’s Bride grafted into the Root of the cultivated olive tree and tamed to the Gospel. The word “beast” (Gk. ‘therion’), signifies a wild beast; metaphorically, a brutal, bestial man, like Paul’s opponents at Ephesus, savage, ferocious and untamed to the obedience of Christ (Romans 8:7; I Corinthians 15:32). The “harlot” Roman Church is seated on the beast. She is controlling the last, or fourth empire. With the world church system under her Rome will be controlling, and her once Protestant image will be obedient to Rome because Rome controls the gold of the world.

four cherubim type Bride around ThroneThe First Seal opened by the living creature with the face of a Lion was effective from Pentecost and during the Ephesian, Smyrnean and Pergamean Church Ages (AD53 – AD606). It represents the elect who were Spiritually redeemed through the revelation of the Messages to those dispensations, which reproduced the nature of the living creature who called “Come,” when the Lamb opened the First Seal. In the Old Testament the Lion adorned the standard God lifted up against the enemy from the East and represented the tribe of Judah aided by Issachar and Zebulon. The Light of the Gospel came out of the East and has shone even to the West (Matthew 24:27). Under the Gentile dispensation the world power is Rome, and as Rome will rule to the consummation one need have no doubt that the Roman Catholic Church will rule Lucifer’s totalitarian one world government. Thereafter the pope and his followers from all denominations and no denomination will be cast into a lake of Fire (Romans 9:27; Revelation 17:1 – 19:20). The horses of the heroes of Roman triumphs were white, and the rider of this white horse is the antichrist spirit. He had a bow but no arrows. Like a firearm, the bow is effective at a distance, but without arrows Satan was all chutzpah, a bluff, seeking spiritual power by usurping the Leadership of the Holy Spirit to establish a clerical hierarchy over the laity in imitation of Israelitish Temple worship. Jesus called this “the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I hate.” He had no crown at the start of his ride, but he moved his earthly headquarters from Pergamos to Rome and in the third or Pergamean Church Age “a [triple] crown was given to him” following the organization of the Roman Catholic church at the First Nicea Council of AD325. There “the deeds of the nicolaitanes” were enshrined as “the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes” and with church and state combined “he went forth conquering, and to conquer” (Revelation 2:6, 9, 13, 15).

Brother Branham said, “Here’s the plan of it: the first thing happens, there is an announcement in the heavens first. [A thunder and the voice of the living creature saying, “Come”]! What happened? A Seal is opened. What is that? A mystery is unfolded. See? And when a mystery unfolds, then a trumpet sounds. It declares a [natural] war [in judgment upon the Israelites for rejecting the Message of the angel, which is the mystery of redemption to that Age]. Or a plague falls, and a Church Age opened. See? What is the war part? The angel of the Church catches the mystery of God, not fully yet revealed, but when he does, he catches this mystery of God, and then he goes forth to the people (after the mystery has been given to him), goes forth to the people. What does he do out there? He begins to proclaim that message, and what does it start? A war, a spiritual war.”

“And then God takes His messenger with the elect of that Age, and lays them away asleep, and then He drops a plague upon them who rejected it: a temporary judgment [or Vial]. And then, after that is over, then he goes on, and they denominate, and bring in denominations, and start off with that man’s work like of Wesley and all the rest of them, and then it gets all in a scrapple again; and then another mystery comes forth. Then what happens? Another messenger arrives on earth for a Church Age. See?”

“Then when he arrives, the [Gospel] Trumpet sounds. He declares war. See? And then what happens? Finally then he’s caught away. And then when he’s laid away, then plague [or a Vial] falls destroys them. Spiritual death hits the church and she’s gone, that group. Then He goes on to another one.”

“Oh, it’s a great plan until it comes to that last angel. Now, he has no certain mystery, but he gathers up all that’s been lost in them other Ages, all the truths that wasn’t truly revealed yet (See?), as the revelation comes. Then he reveals those things in his day. If you want to read it, there it is: Revelation 10:1 to about 4. You’ll get it. All right. See?”

“. . . while all them scruples of denominations arguing their difference about their creed, God promised that He would send us a true prophet of the true Word with a Message to return to the original Word of God and the faith of the fathers to bring down the power of the Holy Ghost amongst the people, with a power that will raise her above these things and take her in [the rapture] at the same time. Yes, sir.

“Same Word be vindicated of Jesus Christ that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. “Lo, I am with you always, even to the consummation. And the works that I do shall you do also. I’ll be right with you. A little while and they won’t see Me no more, ’cause they’ll organize themselves and scatter out, but ye’ll see Me, for I will be with you. I’ll even be in you unto the consummation”. . . Who is that white horse rider? You’re not blind. You see who it is. It’s that antichrist and that deceitful spirit that’s gone now and crept in. . .”

“See, God just keeps repeating it. He showed there’s a man going forth with a white horse and with his bow and no arrow. He’s a bluff. He has no power. You say, “The power of the church . . .” Where’s it at? What do they do? They say, “We’re the original church.” The original church cast out devils, healed the sick, and raised the dead, saw visions and everything else. Where is it now? See? He’s a bluff: bow with no arrow. That’s right.”

“But you see, when Christ come, a Sword went forth from His mouth like a lightning flash. It went forth and consumed His enemies and cast away the Devil. It cut away everything else and He come, His vesture dipped in Blood and on His thigh was written “The Word of God.” Amen. Here He come with His army, coming from heaven.

“That white horse rider has been in the land all the time. He will change from antichrist. He does that and becomes to a false prophet [the pope]. See, he first started an antichrist, the spirit; then he become a false prophet. Then later, when the devil is cast out, he’s incarnate then with the Devil. Three stages: the first he’s a devil to begin with, a spirit of the devil; then he becomes a false prophet, teacher of a false doctrine; next thing he comes as the very devil himself incarnate. See? There he is.”

“And at the same time that this Devil falls out of heaven and becomes incarnate in a man, the Holy Spirit goes up and comes down incarnate Man. Amen. Oh, my. What a time. . . There it is, revealed right there. Here he rides right down through the Age and comes right out here and displays himself right down here just as perfect as he can be. See? That’s him. Now, we’re not deceived on that. Now, you got your eyes opened. Stay away from that kind of stuff. Love the Lord with all your heart, and stay right with Him. Yes, sir. Come out of Babylon” (ibid. p. 126:4 – 127:2; 175:2 – 176:4).

Paul explains in II Thessalonians 2:1-12, “Although religious fanaticism will abound concerning the Coming of our Lord, let no one in any way deceive you: for the day of the Lord will be preceded by worldwide apostasy, then that man of sin will be revealed, the son of perdition; the Adversary who opposes and rises up against every so-called God or object of worship, so that he seats himself in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God [remitting sins].”

The pope of Rome is Judas’ apostolic successor as “the son of perdition,”
whose blasphemous claims include:

Gregory IX (1227 – 1242) stated, “Wherefore, if those things that I do, be said to be done not of man, but of God; what can you make me but God?”

Boniface VIII decreed in 1303, “Temporal authority [of kings] must be subject to spiritual power [of the pope]”.

Pope John XXII (1316 – 1328) stated, “To believe that our Lord God the Pope has not the power to decree as he is decreed, is to be deemed heretical” (The Gloss of Extravagantes of Pope John XXII, Cum. Inter, title 14, chapter 4, “Ad Callem Sexti Decretalium,” Column 140, Paris, 1685. (In an Antwerp edition of the Extravagantes, the words, “Dominum Deum Nostrum Papam” (i.e. “Our Lord God the Pope”) can be found in column 153).

Pius IV (1566 – 1572) stated, “He that reigneth on high made him [the pope] alone prince over all people and all kingdoms, to pluck up, destroy, scatter, consume, plant and build” (Bull published against Queen Elizabeth I).

Pius V said, “The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth” (Barclay, Chapter XXVII, p. 218, ‘Cities Petrus Bertanous’).

Leo XIII asserted, “There is no allegiance to Christ without submission to the Pope” (Michael Malone, Apostolic Digest, Book 4: “The Book of Christians,” Chapter 4). And,

“We hold upon this earth the place of God almighty” (Encyclical Letter, June 20, 1894). And,

“Remember and understand well that where Peter is, there is the Church; that those who refuse to associate in communion with the Chair of Peter belong to Antichrist, not to Christ. He who would separate himself from the Roman Pontiff has no further bond with Christ” (Satis Cognitum, quoted in “Acts of Leo XIII: Supreme Pontiff,” Rome: Vatican Press, 1896).

In 1662 when “Peter’s chair” was being cleaned in order to set it up in some conspicuous place of the Vatican, the twelve labours of Hercules appeared on it (Bower’s History of the Popes, Vol. i. p. 7), it had been borrowed from the Pagans and so it had to be laid aside. The next chair appears to have been purloined from Muslims; for when the French soldiers under General Bonaparte took possession of Rome in 1795, they found on the back of it, in Arabic, this well-known sentence of the Koran, “There is no God but God, and Mahomet is His Prophet” (Lady Morgan’s Italy, Vol. iii. p. 81; Alexander Hislop, The Two Babylons).

Pius X stated, “The Pope is not only the representative of Jesus Christ, but he is Jesus Christ Himself, hidden under the veil of the flesh. Does the Pope speak? It is Jesus Christ who speaks. Does the Pope accord a favor or pronounce an anathema? It is Jesus Christ who pronounces the anathema or accords the favor. So, when the Pope speaks we have no business to examine. We have only to obey” (Catholic National, July 1895).

“The Pope is the spiritual father of all Christians . . . The Pope is the Shepherd and Teacher of all Christians” (A Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, Revised edition, 1985).

Here are but some of the papal titles which confirm his identity as “the” antichrist throughout modern history:

“Most divine of all Heads.” “Holy Father of Fathers.” Pontiff Supreme Over Prelates.” “Overseer of the Christian Religion.” “Pastor of Pastors.” “Christ by Unction.” “Abraham by Patriachate.” “Melchisedec in Order.” “Moses in Authority.” “Samuel in the Judicial Office.” “High Priest, Supreme Bishop.” “Heir to the Apostles; Peter in Power.” “Key-bearer of the Kingdom of Heaven.” “Pontiff Appointed with Plenitude of Power.” “Vicar of Christ.” “Vicar of the Son of God.” “Sovereign Priest.” “Head of all the Holy Churches.” “Chief of the Universal Church.” “Bishop of Bishops.” “Ruler of the House of the Lord.” “Apostolic Lord and Father of Fathers.” “Chief Pastor and Teacher.” “Physician of Souls.” “Rock against which the proud gates of hell prevail not.” “Infallible Pope.” “Head of All the Holy Priests of God”.

In speaking of the identification of antichrist who will become “the beast,” Jesus said, “This calls for [Spiritual] wisdom. Let he who has understanding count the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, his number is 666”  (Revelation 13:18). We “count the number of the beast” by adding the Roman numerals that constitute the papal title, VICARIVS FILII DEI: “vicar—deputy or substitute for Christ” or substitute for the Holy Spirit. Thus: 5 + 1 + 100 + 1 + 5 + 1 + 50 + 1 + 1 + 500 + 1 = 666.

[The seven heads of Rome mentioned in Revelation 17 were seven emperors who deified themselves, “And the beast that was, and is not, (the pope “is,” and when he dies he “is not,” but when his replacement is elected he “is”), even he is the eighth [the Devil-incarnate beast], and is of the seven [in that he makes himself God (II Thessalonians 2:4)], and goes into perdition. And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength to the beast” to establish Lucifer’s totalitarian one world government (Revelation 17:11-13).

Many are claiming that the mark of the beast will be a micro-chip, but Jesus said it will be identified with one man in whom Satan will rule Rome’s one world government to the consummation (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17). Christ’s Adversary demands obeisance, the absolute submission of your mind to his will: his mark is not a micro-chip but absolute dominion of your will through mind control by propaganda, fanatical religion, fear and superstition, with physical violence and death to recalcitrants. Here is a secular illustration of mind control enforced global today.

Revelation 13:4, “And the whole world will [vicariously] worship the dragon [Satan] who gives his authority to the beast [of Rome in the person of a devil-incarnate pope]: and will worship the beast, saying, Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him”? Because after the sinking of Los Angeles, the “hot stage” of World War III, the collapse of the US dollar and world economy, and Russia’s successful invasion of mainland USA, the pope will restore peace under one world government, repatriate Russia’s occupying armies, and in covenant with the self-styled Jewish banksters refinance the US dollar and restore the world economy. Revelation 17:1-6 portrays Papal Rome seated on or controlling the fourth world empire, and Revelation 18:1-20 like Daniel 2:40-45, describes Rome’s wealth, her hubris, and her utter destruction.

Revelation 13:5-8, “And the beast [the “little horn” of Daniel 7:20] was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and permitted to control the Earth for forty-two months [the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week], throughout which he blasphemed God’s Name [changing Lord Jesus Christ to three Titles], and His abode, and the saints in heaven resurrected and translated [to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb]. And he was permitted to make war with 144,000 elect Israelites and their two Hebrew prophets, and to kill them all: and authority was given him over every tribe, and tongue, and nation. And all inhabitants of Earth whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world will worship him”.

The mark of the beast is the mark of Cain; it is not a microchip but carnal wisdom, reasoning against the faith or revealed Word of God, which is vicarious worship of Satan. Brother Branham said, “Anything contrary to the precepts of God, the Word of God, is not God. What is it? What is sin? Righteousness perverted. What is death? Life perverted. What is the kingdom of Satan? Anything that’s setting something to take the place of the Word, anything, any teaching. One word, just one word. You might believe every bit. Eve believed every bit of It to that one Word. That one Word’s all she needed to disbelieve. That one Word is all you need to disbelieve” (Oneness, p. 11:55)].

II Thessalonians 2:2-12, “Do you not recollect how I told you these things when I was with you? So now you know he is restrained from revealing himself until the lawlessness of apostasy takes hold of the world [after the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and the translation of the Bride (Revelation 6:12-17; 12:7-10)], for the mystery of lawlessness is already at work [deceiving the non-elect]: only the presence of the Holy Spirit in the Bride is restraining and will continue to impede it until He is taken out of the way [in the first resurrection]. Then that Wicked one will be unveiled [made known or revealed Gk. ‘apokalupto’], whom the Lord Jesus will consume with the Spirit of His Word (Revelation 11:5; 19:15), and shall destroy [Gk. ‘katargeo’ or render ineffectual his influence on the 144,000 and non-elect martyrs to-be] with the brightness [shining forth Gk. ‘epiphanaea’]: of His [Gk. ‘parousia’] Coming.

(This is not speaking of the physical appearance of the glorified Jesus mistakenly anticipated by the denominations, but His revelation to “those who pierced Him,” the 144,000 elect Israelites, and to “all [non-elect] kindreds [of Adam’s race that have not taken the mark of the beast] and who will wail because of Him,” when they recognize they have missed the rapture and must suffer martyrdom in order to retain their names on the Book of Life, and salvation).

“The [‘parousia’] coming of the lawless man [or Devil-incarnate pope] by the activity of Satan will be with all power and with lying signs and wonders, [uniting the world’s religions to halt World War III (Revelation 13:3, 14), restoring peace and establishing totalitarian one world government]. The deceivableness of unrighteousness in carnal men who aspire to one world government, one world religion, climate change, environmental tax, etc., because they did not receive the love of the Truth that they might be saved [and Christ the Word is the Truth. They love the historical Jesus, but He does not love them because they hate Christ the Word, and prefer a creed]. For this cause God shall send them strong delusion, to make them believe the lie—[the same lie Satan told Eve, that God loves you dearly, He loves the Muslims, Anglicans, JWs, and Catholics so dearly, “You won’t surely die”]; so that all who have not believed the Truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness may be damned”.

Brother Branham explains the heavenly temple portrayed in the Book of Revelation as the scene of a play showing us the way back to Eden’s sinless perfection. We learn from the first three verses that this is a Book of prophecy, so we must not lean to our own literal understandings but heed what God has spoken through His prophet: “John was on the Isle of Patmos because he tried to put the Word of God into a book form and was exiled there by the Roman government, and was on the island in the day of the Lord, and he heard behind him a Voice of many waters [the multitude of the saints] and turned to look, and he saw seven golden candlesticks. And there stood the Son of God in between them.”

(He is describing John on the Isle of Patmos in the flesh, but caught up in the Spirit into the day of the Lord, which is yet future. John represents you as a member of Christ’s Capstone Bride on earth in man’s day in the flesh, but caught up in the Spirit into the day of the Lord, receiving the same revelation of Brother Branham’s ministry through the Spoken Word audio and transcripts as John received when he saw and heard him in the visions. John looks back to man’s day before Israel’s Seventh Trumpet signaled the end of the Gentile dispensation and sees Christ in the midst of the seven golden lampstands, which represent the Bride drawn from all Seven Church Ages. His robe is no longer girt about the waist as Priest and Mediator, but about the breast as Judge).

“Now, the mystery of the Book are revealed when the Seals are broken. And when the Seals completely are broken, the time of redemption is over, because the Lamb left the intercession post to walk out to take His claims. He was a Mediator between that, but when the real revelation happens on the Seals as they begin to break, the Lamb is coming forth from the sanctuary. It’s according to the Word. We read it last night. He come out of the midst [of the seven golden lampstands in the Holy Place to the Throne in the Holy of Holies] and took the Book. So He’s no more Mediator, because even they called Him a Lion, and that’s the King, and He’s not a Mediator then.”

“Although the actors of these Seals begin at the first Church Age. . . Now, remember, so we’ll get the background of it thoroughly if we can, or as thoroughly as possible. The actors. . . I’ll place it like that, because an actor is a man who changes masks. See?”

“And in this act tonight, we’re going to see that it’s Satan changing his mask. And all actors. . . Christ, acting the part as He did when He become from a Spirit to man, He only put on an actor’s garment, human flesh, and came down in the form of a man in order to be a Kinsman Redeemer” (ibid. p. 124:3 – 125:1).

“Notice. Now, the Holy Spirit and the revelation and Christ is. . . The Holy Spirit is Christ in another form. That’s right. Notice, it is a Lamb that opened the Book, and the Lamb is Christ; and Christ is not seen anymore from then, but He is seen in the Book of Revelations the nineteenth chapter, coming on a white horse:

“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse [not on the earth; in heaven. See?]; and He that set on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness does He judge and make war. His eyes were flames of fire, and on His head was many crowns. [Look at the diadem]; and He had a Name written, that no man knowed, but He Himself”.

“. . . nobody knows it. Did you ever know that the Name of Jehovah is not correct? Anyone knows. Dr. Vayle, you know that’s true. The translators could never translate it. It’s spelled J-v-h-u. It isn’t Jehovah. They couldn’t touch it. They don’t know what it is. Called it Jehovah, but it wasn’t His Name. Look. Every time a victory’s won or something goes on, a name is changed.”

“Look at the days of Abraham. He was first Abram, and never could have that baby until his name was changed to Abraham. And Sarai, S-a-r-a-i could not have nothing but a dead womb until her name was changed to S-a-r-a-h.”

“Jacob means “supplanter, deceiver,” and that’s what he did. He put sheepskin on hisself and deceived his prophet father to take the birthright. He put poplar sticks in the water, speckled them, and scared the cattle when they was pregnated with their young, to make speckled cattle and sheep. Nothing but a deceiver, but one night he caught ahold of something real. And he knowed it was real, and he stayed with it and held on until he overcome, and his name was changed and called Israel meaning “a prince with power before God.” Is that right? Every overcomer. . .”

Simon was a fisherman; but when his faith caught and knowed that was Jesus, when He told him He was the Messiah and told him who his name was and what his father’s name was, he was overcome and changed from Simon to Peter.”

Saul, good name, Saul was a king one time in Israel, but Saul didn’t fit an apostle. Might be all right for a king, but not an apostle. So Jesus changed his name from what? From Saul to Paul. Look at the sons of thunder and on down.

“And Jesus, His Name on earth was Redeemer, Jesus. When He was on earth, He was the Redeemer; that’s true. But when He conquered death and hell, and overcome them, and ascended on high, He received a new Name. That’s the reason they holler the way they do and don’t get nothing; it’ll be revealed in the thunders. See?”

“Notice, the mystery. He’s coming, riding. . . There’s got to be something to change this Church, you know that. There’s got to be something. Notice. “No man knowed but Himself.” Now, notice, “no man knowed but Hisself”.

“And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His Name was called The Word of God. [Oh, notice]. And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He tread the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He had on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS”.

“There comes the Messiah. There He is, not this fellow on this horse back here. Watch the different. Here He stands with the Book in His hand here [in Revelation 5:7]. The redemptive work is just [beginning] . . . He hasn’t took His place [on the white horse of Revelation nineteen] yet.”

“So it was not the Christ that went forth, the Holy Spirit. Not disagreeing with them great men, no, sir, I don’t do it. I wouldn’t want to do that, but this is what my revelation of it is. See, if you got something different, well, that’s all right, but it ain’t all right with me. See, I believe it this way; you know what. See?”

“And notice, Christ is not seen any more (See?) from the time there [i.e. Revelation 6:1]. But He is on a white horse; so if this guy is riding a white horse, he’s only an impersonator of Christ. See? Get that? Notice, the rider on the white horse don’t have any name. He might use two or three titles, but he hasn’t got any name. But Christ has a Name. What is it? The Word of God. That’s what it is. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”. And the Word is made flesh. See?

“The rider has no name, but Christ is called the Word of God. That’s what He is. He’s called that. Now, He’s got a Name that no man knows, but He’s called the Word of God. This guy isn’t called nothing (See?), but he’s on a white horse.”

“The rider has no arrows for his bow. Did you notice? He had a bow, but there’s nothing said about having any arrows; so he must be a bluffer. That’s right. Maybe he’s got a lot of thunder and no lightning, but you find out Christ had both lightning and thunder; for out of His mouth goes a sharp two-edged Sword, and He smites the nations. And this guy can’t smite nothing (See?), but he’s playing the part of a hypocrite. He’s going forth riding on a white horse, going out to conquer.”

“Christ has a sharp Sword, and watch. It comes from His mouth—the living Word. That’s the Word of God revealed to His servants, like He said to Moses: “Go, stand there and hold that stick out yonder, call for flies,” and there was flies. Sure. Whatever He said, He done it, and it come to pass. His living Word. . . God and His Word is the self same Person. God is the Word.

“Who is this mysterious rider of the first Church Age then? Who is he? Let’s think of it. Who is this mysterious rider that starts forth in the first Church Age and rides plumb on out into eternity, goes to the end [“to perdition”
(Revelation 17:8, 11)] (ibid. p. 157:1 – 159:7)?
