Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship.

Today’s Newsletter features a special main article by Dmitry Steshin, Nicholas Varsegov and Vladimir Sungorkin of Pravda entitled, “Meet the Pilot who shot down Malaysian Boeing MH17, Ukrainian Air Force Captain Vladislav Voloshin: “The Plane was in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time.” So much for the bald-faced lies of toadies that pretend to represent their electors and nations as parliamentarians, senators, prime ministers and presidents but in fact serve the Jews’ City of London, ever anxious to ignite the ‘hot stage’ of the ongoing World War III to prevent the fraudulent Babylonian fractional reserve system of usury from collapsing outside their control.

This golem is accursed by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. So much for the vulgar threat of Judaeo-Jesuit casuist, Australia’s Prime Minister Tony Abbott, to “shirtfront” President Vladimir Putin who towers above him in moral integrity and intellectual stature: “Be sure your sin will find you out” (Numbers 32:23).

Other news items confirm it is war-mongering patsies of ‘the City’ who are behind the bloody terrorism, narcotics, media manipulation and treachery proposed by the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion; non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews working to establish Lucifer’s Talmudic objective of the totalitarian one world government Jesus Messiah declined.

Please remember our Brother commencing missionary activities in the Dominican Republic.

Captagon® is Jihadists’ Main Weapon

al Qaeda flag

April 2, 2014 — While the Western and Gulf media lead people to believe jihadists get their nourishment primarily from the verses of the Koran, the seizures made in Syria show that in reality, they feed on Captagon.

In two days, the Syrian Army took hold of a car full of Captagon tablets and a tank truck containing a ton.

Captagon (Fenetylline hydrochloride) is an amphetamine that causes euphoria and numbs the pain. Mixed with other drugs like hashish, it constitutes the basic feed ration for the jihadists. Combatants neither feel their own suffering nor the suffering they inflict on others. Therefore, they can commit all sorts of atrocities, laughing.

Contrary to popular belief, the jihadists are not driven by religious concerns, but by the quest of immediate pleasures. They are mainly recruited among hooligans and prisoners.

Manufactured in 2011 by NATO in a laboratory in Bulgaria, Captagon is now manufactured throughout the Middle East, including the Syrian territory . . . Full story: voltairenet.org

Comment: Again we see Islam is innocent, and this is one more false flag, black flag op “Made in the USA,” which, like Britain, Australia, Canada and most other independent (sic) nations, is a colony of the Empire of the Jews’ City of London, a puppet working both sides of World War III, oblivious to the fact it will be defeated and briefly occupied by Russia, then some years later annihilated by NATO along with Vatican City State according to your Bible own (Revelation 17 – 18).


Karzai Family hands over Heroin Trafficking to Islamic State

December 1, 2014 — Since 2010, the Russian authorities have consistently accused NATO of exporting Afghan heroin to Europe. The switch from using drugs planes run by NATO to those controlled by the Islamic Emirate confirms the links between the two organizations. This came just after President Hamid Karzai left office, September 29, 2014. The Islamic Emirate uses a cocktail of drugs to condition its fighters according to protocols that appear to have been prescribed by the CIA. According to the Russian Federal Drug Control Service (FSKN), more than half of the heroin consumed in Europe currently comes from Afghanistan via the Islamic State . . . Full story: voltairenet.org

Comment: This is a means of distancing the CIA which is the major narcotics supplier, and the US Administration from financing its ISIS mercenary operation.


ISIS’ Bloody Footprints lead from NATO Territory

December 17, 2014 — It was reported recently that Germany’s broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) investigated what turned out to be hundreds of trucks a day carrying billions of dollars in supplies, flowing into Syria and directly into the hands of the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS).

[Donmeh Jew-ruled] Turkey, a NATO member since 1952, has played a pivotal role in the destabilization and destruction of neighboring Syria. Since 2011, Turkey has allowed its territory to be used as a transit and staging point for sectarian terrorists flowing from around the world and into Syria in what could be described as a defacto NATO invasion by proxy.

In 2011, after the Libyan conflict drew to an end in favor of NATO, terrorists it had armed and provided air cover for in North Africa were promptly shipped to Turkey where they then slipped into Syria to engage the Syrian government and its military. Since then, an untold number of terrorists have used not only Turkey as a staging ground, but also Lebanon and Jordan.

In 2011, after the Libyan conflict drew to an end in favor of NATO, terrorists it had armed and provided air cover for in North Africa were promptly shipped to Turkey where they then slipped into Syria to engage the Syrian government and its military. Since then, an untold number of terrorists have used not only Turkey as a staging ground, but also Lebanon and Jordan.

In addition to literal terrorists being harbored in NATO territory, security agencies of NATO members including the US and UK, have been active along the Turkish-Syrian border arming, funding and equipping what they call “moderate rebels.” These moderate rebels have recently been revealed as affiliates of or organized directly organized beneath both Al Qaeda and ISIS.

DW’s report does not implicate merely Turkey in aiding and abetting ISIS, but exposes the fact that ISIS’ supply lines lead from within NATO itself—in other words, ISIS is a creation, perpetuation, and agent of NATO.

Contrary to Western propaganda, Al Qaeda was intentionally organized and directed by the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel to engage in a regional confrontation aimed at Iran and its powerful arc of influence. Exposed by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh in his 2007 article, “The Redirection: Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?” it was stated explicitly that (emphasis added):

To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has coöperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The US has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda.

Clearly, ISIS is the verbatim fulfillment of Hersh’s 2007 warning.

And while some may question what took place between 2007 and the current disposition of ISIS today, those documenting the ongoing conflict in Syria starting in 2011 have noted substantial and continued state sponsorship of militants fighting in the Syrian conflict, many of which are now confirmed to be operating under the banner of ISIS.

Headlines over the past 3-4 years including, “CIA Said to Aid in Steering Arms to Syrian Opposition,” “First Syria rebels armed and trained by CIA ‘on way to battlefield’,” “Arms Airlift to Syria Rebels Expands, With Aid From CIA,” and “Official says CIA-funded weapons have begun to reach Syrian rebels; rebels deny receipt,” reveal ongoing Western support, bridging the gap between the conspiracy exposed by Hersh in 2007 and the current torrent of supplies flowing to ISIS via NATO territory.

It is clear that the ISIS threat was NATO all along, the culmination of a conspiracy spanning at least two US Presidential administrations, and resulting in a regional conflict marked by some of the most horrific barbarism documented in modern history.

With NATO feeding the ISIS threat directly, no serious attempt to destroy ISIS in either Syria or Iraq can be attempted without first cutting its supply lines leading from NATO territory. Clearly the United States, NATO, or regional partners like Israel, Qatar, or Saudi Arabia have no intention of doing so. As indicated by DW’s report, Kurds operating on both sides of the Turkish-Syrian border are attempting to seal off the flow of supplies leading from NATO territory.

The Syrian Arab Army, the Iranian forces supporting anti-ISIS fighters in Syrian territory, and the allies of both countries must insist that strict resolutions are passed to secure the border and stem the flow of ISIS’ lifeline. A clearly worded resolution, if voted down by the likes of the US and its NATO accomplices, will expose further the true nature ISIS and the misanthropic agenda of the West it is a manifestation of.

If the West capitulates and the resolution is passed, further steps toward arming and aiding the Syrian and Iranian governments and their various allies in the securing of the Turkish-Syrian border can be made. From there, the proxy war engineered and executed by the West which has engulfed the region for years, may finally be brought to an end.

Meet the Pilot who shot down Malaysian Boeing MH17
Vladislav Voloshin: “The Plane was in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time”

By Dmitry Steshin, Nicholas Varsegov, Vladimir Sungorkin

MH17

December 25, 2014 — A “secret witness” has appeared in the “Malaysian Boeing” case; his evidence drops all the charges against the opolchenye—militias and Russia. And also explains the mysterious behaviour of Western experts.

This man came to the omsomolskaya Pravda Editorial office on his own. We checked his papers—he is not an actor, nor a straw man. We cannot yet reveal the real data provided by the witness—his relatives are still in Ukraine and he is afraid of retaliation and blackmail. Judging by the facts Alexandr told us (let us name him so)—his concerns are quite real. Here is the transcript of our conversation almost without any cuts.

Bomber returned without missiles

• Where were you on July 17, 2014, onwards, the day when the Malaysian Boeing was shot down?

I was on the territory of Ukraine, in the city of Dnepropetrovsk, Aviatorskoe settlement. That is a usual airport. At that time, there were fighter jets and helicopters. Air jets performed regular flights, bombed; the Su-25 hedgehoppers bombed Donetsk, Lugansk. This went on for a long time.

• Did air jets flew every day?

Daily.

• Why did you assume that those aircraft could be related to the loss of Boeing?

For several reasons. Eight aircraft were stationed there, and only two of them had “air-to-air” missiles. They were hanged.

• Why? Were there any air battles in the air?

No, the missiles were hanged onto the aircraft to cover themselves in the air. Just in case. Mainly ammo on sling for operation towards earth. Non-guided missiles, bombs.

• Tell us about July 17.

The air jets flew on a regular base. Starting with the morning and all day long. By the second half of the day, approximately an hour before the shooting down of the Boeing, three hedgehoppers took off into the air. I do not remember the specific time. One of the three air jets was fitted with such missiles. It was a Su-25.

• Did you see it personally?

Yes.

• Where was your observation point?

In the territory. I cannot say specifically.

• Did you have the opportunity to watch specifically what was hung to the air jet pylons? Could you mix up air-to-air and air-to-earth missiles?

No, I could not mix them up. They differ in sizes, empennage, and color. The guidance head. It is so easy to recognize it. Actually, after some time only one jet returned, and two had been shot down. Somewhere in the East of Ukraine, I was told so. Only one jet returned, which had those suspended missiles.

• So, did it return already without missiles?

Without any missiles. And the pilot was very frightened.

• Are you familiar with that pilot, did you see him?

Yes.

• And can you tell us his name?

Voloshin last name.

• Was he alone in the aircraft?

Yes. The aircraft is designed for one person.

• Do you know his first name?

It was like Vladislav. I am not so sure. A captain.

• So captain Voloshin returned. What was next?

He returned with the empty ammunition load??.

• Were there no missiles?

Yes.

“The aircraft, it was not the one”

• Tell us, Alexandr, the aircraft returned from the combat mission, you do not yet know about the loss of Boeing, but still you somehow are surprised by the fact that there are no more “air-to-air” missiles. Why?

Those missiles “air-to-air” are not part of the basic ammunition load. They are hung according to a special order. Usually, they tried not to rise into air such jets with such missiles. Because it is not allowed to transport such a missile along in the air.

Only two missiles of this type may be carried by such a jet. And it was never for them to be applied before. They were amortized beforehand. But just a day before, in a week time before this incident (loss of Boeing. – Editor), the use of these missiles has been urgently extended. And they were again delivered as ammunition. They have not been used for many years.

• Why?

Their effective resource ended. Too old, yet Soviet production. But it was an emergency order and their resource was extended.

• And was it that day when they were hung to the air jet?

They stood all time long with those missiles.

• But still they did not fly?

They tried to let them fly as rare as possible—each flight reduces the resource. But this was the day when the jet to departure.

• And did it return without them?

Yes. Knowing a little bit that pilot . . . (quite possible that the other two jets were shot down in front of him), and he had some scared reaction, inadequate. He might be frightened or as a revenge run the missiles into the Boeing. May be he just took it for some other combatant air jet.

• Are these missiles with self-guided heads?

Yes.

• When he pushed them, did they begin to search for the target?

No. The pilot himself fixes the target. Then he launches the missile, and it flies to the target.

• Could the pilot use these missiles at ground targets?

That is pointless.

• What else did you remember that day? What did the pilot say?

The phrase he said after he was taken out of the jet: “The aircraft, it was not the one”. And in the evening there was a phrase, a question from a pilot for him, to the same Voloshin: “What about the aircraft?” And he answered: “The aircraft got on a wrong time to a wrong place”.

“And the departures continued after the tragedy”

• How long did that pilot serve there? How old is he?

Voloshin is about 30 years old. His regiment is based in Nikolayev. They were sent to Dnepropetrovsk. Just before that, they had a mission to Chuguev, near Kharkov. And for all that time they bombed Donetsk and Lugansk. Moreover, according to the information from one of the servicemen in the regiment in Nikolayev, they still continue to do that.

• Did the pilots have a good combat experience?

Those who were there, they had experience. The Nikolayev regiment was the best regiment of Ukraine for 2013, as I know.

• Was the story with the Boeing somehow discussed among the pilots?

All the attempts to discuss were suppressed immediately. And the pilots mainly communicated among them, they are, you know, so . . . proud.

• After everybody learned of this Boeing, what happened to that pilot, to captain Voloshin?

Departures continued afterwards. Moreover, the pilots were not changed. There were the same faces.

“There were no flights . . . but they were shot down”

• Let’s try to simulate events. How could they develop? Three aircraft flew on a combat mission. They were roughly in that area, where the Boeing was. Two aircraft were shot down. This captain Voloshin got nervous, was scared, and perhaps he took the Boeing for a warplane?

It is possible. It was a big distance; he just could not see specifically what type of aircraft it was.

• Which is the distance these missiles are launched?

They may fix the target from some 3 – 5 kilometers.

• And what is the difference of speeds in a warplane and a Boeing?

There is no difference: a missile has a pretty good speed. It’s a very fast missile.

• Does it catch up anyway? And what is the height?

He may properly do it at his maximum lift—at 7 thousand meters—quite easy fix the target.

• Can reach it upwards?

Yes. The aircraft can simply uplift the snoot, and it is not a problem to fix that and launch the missile. The range of this missile is over 10 kilometers.

• What is the distance from the target where the missile explodes? Can it hit the hull of the craft and explode?

Depending on the modification. Literally, it can hit the hull from the distance of 500 meters.

• We worked at the disaster place and we noticed that the fragments hit the hull very closely. The feeling was that the explosion was literally in some two meters from the Boeing.

There exists such a missile. It is the principle of pellets—the missile explodes and the pellets disperses. Afterwards the main warhead of the missile hits.

• Ukraine declared that on that day they had no combat flight missions. We have controlled different consolidated sources on downed aircraft; Ukraine denies everywhere that its warplanes made flights that day.

I know that. Ukraine also stated that the two aircraft were downed on the July 16th, and not on the 17th. And the date was modified for several times. But in reality the departures were on a daily basis. I have seen that myself.

Departures had place even during the armistice, however less frequently.

Prohibited bombs

• What kind of weapons was on the aircraft from your airport? Were there used phosphorous bombs, incendiary mixtures? Ukrainian artillery used them on ground very actively.

I did not see any phosphorous (bombs). But still fuel-air bombs were used.

• Are they prohibited?

Yes. The bomb was specially assigned for Afghanistan. It has been prohibited and they did not use it until recently. It is prohibited by some convention, I do not remember, I will not say. This bomb is unhuman, it burns everything. It burns absolutely everything.

• Did they hang them on and use during the combat missions?

Yes. Also there have been the prohibited cluster bombs. Aviation cluster bomb—it depends on the size—can hit a very dimensioned target. One bomb can cover an athletic field. And that is completely, all the surface absolutely, the entire area of two hectares.

• Why did they decide to use such weapon?

All of them executed the order. And it was unclear who gave that order.

• What is the sense of such a weapon? Intimidation?

A maximum destruction of manpower.

They can beat you for any careless word

• Why did you leave for Russia? Why did you take the decision to speak about that? Why, finally, no one knew about that earlier? For you are not the only witness!

Everybody is frightened by the SBU (Security service of Ukraine. – Editor.) and the national guard. People can be beaten for any careless word, arrested for any tiny suspicion of being sympathetic towards Russia or to the opolchenye/militia. While I was from the very beginning against this “anti-terrorist operation”. I do not agree with the policy of the Ukrainian state. The civil war is a wrong thing. It is not normal to you’re your own people. And I do not agree initially to participate somehow or be on the side of Ukraine, being partially involved in that!

The reference from Komsomolskaya Pravda

• What weapons were used by the Ukrainian aviation in Donbass sky

R60 missile—guided, close-in slugfest “air-to-air”

Developed in 1967. Has a specific empennage and solid-propellant engine. Infrared self-guide head. R60 is equipped with proximity fuses; the blasting of the missile takes place at a distance of 5 to 2.5 meters from the target. Projectiles—wolfram wire or bars. Practical flight range makes 10 – 12 kilometers. Starting with 1973 used on all the types of fighter jets and on hedgehoppers. For the last 10 years this armament is not in service with the Russian army, the manufacturing of missile is shut; the special pylons for the missile sling are not used and are not manufactured. Delivered for export.

ODAB-500 – Fuel-air aviation bomb.

This type of bomb is the most prevailing in the post-Soviet space. It is designed for the damage of manpower, industrial constructions, easy-vulnerable equipment, light engineering construction; for antipersonnel and antitank minefields clearing. Used from heights of 200 – 1,000 meters. The bomb contains 193 kilograms of piperylen—a flammable liquid, which in blasting transforms into aerosol and is blasted by a second charge. The effective casualty radius makes 30 meters. It is considered a non-conventional ammunition.

Used as well in hedgehoppers Su-25.

RBK—Single cluster bomb

The most prevailing variant in the post-Soviet space. The representation depends on the type; a container equipped with aircraft bombs of small caliber, which disperses in the blast of the charge combat elements over the target. It is considered a non-conventional ammunition. Used in most types of Soviet and Russian aircraft.

Pastor Benham Irani’s Appeal Successful

22 December, 2014 — Brother Benham Irani’s appeal against his conviction for ‘crimes against national security’ was successful; charges were overturned and this additional six-year sentence will not need to be served. He has two years remaining on his current sentence. Full story: youtube.com


Free Fall of the Ruble: Who’s behind It?

December 19, 2014 — The remaining BRICS—Brazil, India and South Africa—plus members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO)—China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kirgizstan, Uzbekistan—and considered for membership since September 2014—also India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran and Mongolia, with Turkey waiting in the wings—will trade in their local currencies, detached from the dollar-based western casino scheme. A host of other nations increasingly weary of the decay of the western financial system into which they are locked are just waiting for a new monetary scheme to emerge. So far their governments may have been afraid of the emperor’s wrath—but gradually they are seeing the light. They are sensing the sham and weakness behind Obama’s boisterous noise. They don’t want to be sucked into the black hole, when the casino goes down the drain.

To punish Russia for Ukraine, Obama is about to sign into law major new sanctions against Russia, following Congress’s unanimous passing of a recent motion to this effect. That is what the MSM would like you to believe. It is amazing that ten months after the Washington instigated Maidan slaughter and coup where a Washington selected Nazi Government was put in place, the MSM still lies high about the origins of this government and the massacres it is committing in the eastern Ukraine Donbass area.

Congress’s unanimity—what Congress and what unanimity?—Out of 425 lawmakers, only 3 were present for the vote. The others may have already taken off for their year-end recess, or simply were ‘ashamed’ or rather afraid to object to the bill. As a matter of fact, of the three who were present to vote, two at first objected. Only after a bit of arm-twisting and what not, they were willing to say yes. This is how the ‘unanimous’ vote came to be, as trumpeted by the MSM—unanimous by three votes! The public at large is duped again into believing what is not.

What new sanctions does this repeatedly propagated bill entail?—It addresses mostly Russian energy companies and the defense industry with regard to sales to Syria, as well more anti-Russia propaganda and ‘democratization’ programs in Ukraine—and Russia; all countries with the objective for regime change . . . at least 80% of the Russian population stands solidly behind Vladimir Putin. He has brought them universal education, health care and fixed infrastructure that was decaying after the fall of the Soviet Union. President Putin is literally revered as a hero by the vast majority of Russians—including the country’s oligarchy.

In fact, nobody in the western economic system these days is dealing in rubles. In short-sighted connivance with Washington, the treasuries of the western vassals are releasing their ruble reserves—which Russia does not buy, thereby flooding the market. Russia not only has large dollar reserves, plus the ruble is backed by gold, a fact consistently omitted in the MSM. For now, Russia prefers to let the ruble plummet . . .

Russia needs rubles. That’s her currency. That is the currency Russia needs for future trading—detached from the western monetary system.

When Russia deems that her currency has reached rock-bottom, she will buy back cheap rubles in the market with massive amounts of dollars. Russia may then flood the western market—with dollars, euros and other western-allied currencies—and gold. Let’s not forget, the ruble is backed by gold . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Comment: Please read the linked article and the full story.

The ‘hidden hand’ yesterday tensioned the thumbscrews in the ‘squeeze’ when the Jewish colony of Ukraine provocatively renounced its non-aligned status, a counterproductive step changing its status as Russia’s buffer against the West and boosting tensions around the crisis in the east.


Why China will not become the Dominant Power in Asia

King of the East

It is not widely discussed but China’s capital-intensive growth model is founded on an ocean of debt. National corporate debt levels have grown from 147 per cent of GDP in 2008 to over 250 per cent by June 2014. As Dibb and Lee put it, “the expansion of debt—which has been used to finance capital inputs—from US$9 – 10 trillion in 2008 to US$20 – 25 trillion in 2014 exceeds the size of the total American banking system”. Thus the debt to asset ratio of Chinese firms was 105 per cent in 2011 and is now (in 2014) even higher. Corporate debt could easily sink the global economy. . .

Comment: This appears to reinforce our statement last week concerning global depression. Brother Branham prophesied “You watch for a depression, brother. You think you’ve seen something; you just wait after while. You haven’t seen nothing” (Jezebel Religion, p. 22:100).


Fascism and War: Elite Tools to crush and kill Dissent

Adolf Hitler

December 17, 2014 — Dr. Jacques Pauwels is not the kind of historian you often hear about in the mainstream media. He’s obviously not the kind of “expert” they refer to for historical facts. Actually, one crucial propaganda method consists in excluding current events from their historical context.

Listening to Pauwels makes one realize the scope of the lies we’ve been fed about the Second World War, fascism and democracy, and how myths related to previous wars need to be upheld in the mainstream discourse to satisfy never ending war propaganda needs. In a speech held December 15 in Montreal, he explained that World Wars I and II were all about crushing mass revolutionary movements.

The myth of the Good War

Every time Westerners’ approval for war is required, the myth of the good war surfaces: the Second World War was a good war, a necessity to quench Hitler’s blood thirst. Pauwels tears this myth apart, uncovering the vicious nature of the western elite.

The reasons for the US involvement in World War II lie in the social-economic conditions of the time, not in an outpouring of compassion destined to save humanity from fascism. The US elite was actually in favor of fascism, a very convenient tool to crush the mass revolutionary movement embodied by the Russian Revolution and the USSR [funded by tax-exempt US foundations].

WWII was in fact a continuity of WWI. “We are always told that WWI started with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, but it’s not true”, Pauwels says. It is indeed a well established myth carried on by various sources, whether history is written by “thousands of eminent experts, scholars, and leaders” like in Encyclopedia Britannica, or by just about anybody, like in Wikipedia:

The outbreak of war

With Serbia already much aggrandized by the two Balkan Wars (1912–13, 1913), Serbian nationalists turned their attention back to the idea of “liberating” the South Slavs of Austria-Hungary. Colonel Dragutin Dimitrijevic, head of Serbia’s military intelligence, was also, under the alias “Apis,” head of the secret society Union or Death, pledged to the pursuit of this pan-Serbian ambition. Believing that the Serbs’ cause would be served by the death of the Austrian archduke Francis Ferdinand, heir presumptive to the Austrian emperor Francis Joseph, and learning that the Archduke was about to visit Bosnia on a tour of military inspection, Apis plotted his assassination. (World War I, Encyclopedia Britannica).

The immediate trigger for war was the 28 June 1914 assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary, by Yugoslav nationalist Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo. This set off a diplomatic crisis when Austria-Hungary delivered an ultimatum to the Kingdom of Serbia, and international alliances formed over the previous decades were invoked. Within weeks, the major powers were at war and the conflict soon spread around the world. (World War I, Wikipedia).

[This was for public consumption. Australia was preparing for World War I in 1919 as the United States was preparing for World War II in 1934]. Both WWI and WWII had two dimensions: the vertical dimension, namely the rivalry between empires, and the horizontal one, class warfare, Pauwels explains.

These wars were actually the best way for the western elite to cope with the ever growing revolutionary and democratic movements fueled by dire economic conditions and which threatened the established order.

In Nietzsche’s view for example, Pauwels says “war was the solution against revolution, since in a war, there are no discussions, as there is in a democracy. In a war, the minority, the elite, decides and the majority, the proletarians, obey.”

For members of the elite like Malthus, “the system could not be the cause of poverty since they were profiting from it. The cause of poverty was the poor: there were too many of them. Therefore the solution to poverty and threatening revolutionary movements was simply to eliminate poor people and what better solution than war to kill poor people?”

After WWI though, “revolution was no longer a simple idea but rather something concrete: the Soviet Union.” That’s when fascism came to the rescue. “Fascism was the instrument used by the elite to further the objectives of 1914, namely put an end to revolutions and communism.”

Communism and socialism were gaining worldwide momentum after WWI. “The German industrial and financial elite wished to crush the revolutionary movement and destroy the Soviet Union. Adolf Hitler was their instrument.”

US SwastikaAccording to popular belief Western leaders were defending democracy, engaged in a war against Germany to save humanity from fascism and the US involvement in the war led to the downfall of Hitler’s war machine. Nothing is further from the truth. “Hitler was supported by other European countries and the US because they wanted him to destroy the USSR, the cradle of the revolution.” The exact opposite occurred: it was the USSR that defeated Nazi Germany, losing over 20 million souls in the battle.

The US even recruited the best Nazi scientists, technicians and engineers to work for them after the war. That piece of history called Operation Paperclip has yet to find its way into the Encyclopedia Britannica.

WWII was the victory of American Imperialism, a term which is rarely used today even if it best describes the reality the world has been living in ever since. But even more surprising is the surviving myth that we are going to war to save the world from evil dictators or terrorists and that the western world fights for freedom and democracy. Thanks to the “stenographers of power” the tactic is still reliable and used several decades later. Full story: globalresearch.ca

Comment: This is important reading however it is deceptive; the truth is set forth in the nineteenth century plans for three world wars followed by global revolution which will become Armageddon.


Israel’s boundless Support to Terrorists laid bare

Magen David

December 10, 2014 — New Media information revealed that up to 1,400 terrorists who were wounded in Syria have been treated at the expense of the Israeli War Ministry in a field hospital in the occupied Syrian Golan . . . Israeli medical treatment to terrorists has also been provided at Israeli hospitals inside the occupied Palestinian territories, including hospitals that treat high ranking Israeli officers.

Recently, there have been almost daily reports of injured terrorists being transported to those hospitals, with the number of those amounting to tens of hundreds, most of them being taken care of in Poriya hospital in Tiberias and Nahariya hospital in Galilee. The latest of such reports came out earlier today by the Israeli “Walla” website . . . Other Israeli reports stated that an estimated USD 14 million has been spent by the Israeli authorities to treat terrorists injured in Syria since the outbreak of the terrorist war waged against in 2011.

Various intelligence and other reports have come to confirm those published by the media, including reports by the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) monitoring the 1974 accord between Syria and the Israeli enemy. Even the UN force itself has not been spared by the terrorist organizations operating in the disengagement zone, which are receiving direct Israeli support. UN personnel came under repeated attacks by terrorists, including from the Security Council-blacklisted Jabhat al-Nusra organization, which involved clashes as well as abduction in several cases.

Israel’s support to the internationally-created terrorist organizations has taken various aspects, not least the Israeli war planes launching attacks against sites inside the Syrian territory, all in flagrant violation of the counterterrorism resolutions issued by the UN and Security Council in particular.

Sydney Siege: Bourjerdi is Jewish?

December 16 — Haron Monis was the typical Islamist. He loved western society, loved sex and violence and he promoted the propaganda of the CIA and its friends. And he was Jewish, reportedly. In 2009, he was outed as a bogus Islamic cleric by Moslem scholars.

Haron Monis, originally called Manteghi Bourjerdi, may still be alive, unless he was a mind-controlled patsy. Manteghi Bourjerdi, may have links to Borujerd (or Bourjerd) in Iran. The people of Borujerd speak mostly the Borujerdi dialect, which is “to high degree affected by the specific accent common among the Jewish population of Borujerd . . .”

The Sydney Siege was a classic CIA/Mossad/Australian Security Intelligence Organisation inside job. Haron Monis was ‘out on bail’ in spite of being linked to murder and various other serious crimes. Haron Monis recently ‘converted to Sunni Islam’ and became a supporter of the CIA’s ISIS. He spouted slogans designed to discredit Moslems.

Dog Torture at Bottom of CIA Scandal

CIA internment, torture & interrogation facility for innocent patsys

December 18, 2014 — The torture report released by the Senate Intelligence Committee has answered a big question we had about those “enhanced interrogation techniques” employed by the CIA on prisoners from the first day we heard about them . . . If one of the captives might have been in some way tangentially involved in the 9/11 atrocities, the last thing we would have wanted to do would be to torture the truth out of him, for the truth would certainly lead in directions that we would rather not go. We might as well have tortured Dick Cheney if it’s the truth we were after . . .

Now, in his analysis of the Senate report, Thierry Meyssan has shown that that was not the purpose of the CIA’s vile torture program. Its purpose was to break down the captives in the manner in which noted [Jewish] psychologist Martin Seligman broke down his captive dogs, by random torture to condition them to do or say anything we wanted of them. . .

Comment: An eye-opener when you read the links. Did you know that attack dogs can be trained to rape? The ten most shocking facts Russia Today found in CIA torture report. A staggering 54 countries were ‘involved’ in the Senate report in helping US terror activates around the world. Here are seven governments whose leaders will be having sleepless nights trying to come up with excuses to explain their actions.

Although none of the countries were specifically named in the heavily edited document, through a process of elimination and by putting data together, it was quiet clear, which nations were at fault in the report. Those countries which housed US sponsored detention centers were given a code color. Poland for instance was ‘Blue’, while Lithuania was ‘Violet’.


Farmers forced off their Land fight back in Queensland

December 19, 2014 — It hasn’t rained in the outback town of Winton since January 2012. Local grazier Charlie Phillott doesn’t recall it being so dry for so long in all the 80 years he has lived in western Queensland. Most of his time has been spent on the family’s 20,000ha Carisbrooke Station, running cattle and a tourism venture out on the Mitchell grass downs and mesa spinifex country of the upper Diamantina southwest of Winton, not far from where Lark Quarry’s famous dinosaurs once stamped . . .

The octogenarian couple left the station in March, pushed off by the ANZ Bank, which claimed its debts could be recouped only by seizing and selling the prized station. Yet the Phillotts had never defaulted or missed an interest repayment on their loan . . . Farmers who are good managers or who—like Phillott—have never missed a loan repayment are being told by the banks to sell their cattle or hand over their properties because land values have fallen with the drought and loan-to-equity ratios mounted. He says government drought loans are too bound up with red tape and overseen by unsympathetic bureaucrats to be of any help. “The government must step in; we need an immediate moratorium on all forced property sales until it rains, so farm families can either leave if they want to with some dignity or try and trade their way out of the drought,” Moloney told The Weekend Australian yesterday . . .

Comment: This planned tragedy has occurred because governments of both sides of our Hegelian controlled-party political sham democracies have ‘stepped in’ to serve the stated aims of Rothschild’s Illuminati, Communism and the ‘City of London’ includes the abolition of private property, and inheritance. This sleight of hand has transferred the productive economy needed to trade out of debt offshore in China and other low wage nations.

Marxist Pope John Paul II stated in his Encyclical of September 15, 1981, on the subject of private property and capitalism: “Christian tradition has never upheld the right of private property as absolute and untouchable. On the contrary, it has always understood the right as common to all to use the goods of the whole creation.” This stands in direct contravention to papal teachings from Pope Leo XIII to Pius XII: “The Socialist endeavor to destroy private property, and maintain that an individual’s possessions should become the common property of all, to be administered by the State or by municipal bodies . . . unjust, because it would rob the legal possessor, bring the State in to a sphere that is not its own, and cause complete confusion to the community.”

That the objectives of Masonry, Illuminism and Marxism are also those of the Roman Catholic hierarchy is now an open secret. These related systems were established by a vastly wealthy elite whose objective is world hegemony.


Zechariah’s Fifth Vision

 

Zechariah’s fourth vision demonstrated God’s favour toward men in the dispensation of sovereign grace by the forgiveness of sins and the first Coming of the BRANCH in order to accomplish His purpose through elective love. Zechariah’s fifth vision prophesies that by sovereign grace and our preeminence to the mind of God in us all obstacles will be overcome and the Kingdom of God realized.

Zechariah 4:1-3, after the previous vision the prophet had lapsed into a condition of normal consciousness when Brother Branham, “the angel who talked with me,” appeared in a fifth vision “and asked: What do you see? And I said: I see a golden lampstand with a reservoir upon its top and seven lamps upon it with seven pipes to the seven lamps. And there are two olive trees engraved on the reservoir, one upon the right and the other upon the left side”.

Imagine yourself in Zechariah’s sandals watching the vision and listening to the description of the angel William Branham and you will recognize that Zechariah represents the 144,000 elect Israelites in the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week under the ministry of two prophets in the Spirit and with the authority of Moses and Elijah as, Brother Branham explained, they ‘reinstruct another temple’ for the millennium, “an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” The elect Israelites will be transformed into the lively stones of this house of true worship by the revelation of their King Jesus Messiah and His Queen, New Jerusalem, the Church, formed from “the golden oil” of two Testaments received by faith.

Antitype of Pentecostal FeastSix hundred years later on the Isle of Patmos John saw the same vision at a more advanced development of the prophecy signifying Jesus Messiah in the midst of His Church drawn out from all seven Church Ages. Caught up in the Spirit into the coming Day of the Lord, John looked back through time to the present holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the antitype of the Pentecostal feast in which we live. Jesus is no longer in the office of Son of God and Mediator as He was throughout the Church Ages, and not yet in the office Son of David but in the office of Son of Man and Judge. John 5:22, 27, “For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment unto the Son . . . And has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of man”.

We must distinguish the dispensations of Son of man, Son of God, Son of man, and Son of David in that order, as per the Bible, and discriminate between the unique functions of each office.

Revelation 1:12-16, “And I . . . (enter your name here because throughout the Book of Revelation John represents you as Christ’s end-time Bride called-out from the Judaeo-Roman and once Protestant denominations) . . . turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And on turning I saw seven golden lampstands; and in the midst of the lampstands One like the Son of man, clothed with a long robe, and with a golden girdle round His breast. His head and His hair were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire; His feet like fine brass as it glows in the furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters. In His right hand He held seven stars: from His mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and His face was like the sun shining in full strength”.

Sigb of Matthew 24:3Many in the circle of this Message believe Christ is still in the office of Son of God and Mediator, but this vision portrays His Bride drawn out of all seven Church Ages in oneness with Him through the unity of the faith, and He is not a Mediator but a Judge. Were He interceding for the Church Age saints on their ignorance of the fullness of the Word the Bible would still be sealed and His otherwise flowing robes would be girt around the waist in priestly service, but here they reach to His feet and He is girt about the breast (Revelation 15:6). He has not been a Mediator since March 1963 when the blood was removed from the Mercy Seat as indicated in Revelation 4, transforming it to a Judgment Seat prior to the opening of the Seven Seals, and He is portrayed with white hair signifying the wisdom and experience of the Judge.

Daniel 7:9-10 records the same vision: “I watched till the thrones were placed [they were empty when he saw the vision because the twenty-four elders of the Old and New Testaments were not then redeemed as they were when John saw the vision (Revelation 4:4)], and the Ancient of days [Jesus Messiah] took His seat; His garment was white as snow and the hair of His head like whitest wool: His throne was a blaze of flames, and its wheels were burning fire. [Daniel saw the Ark of the Covenant—the Throne of Mercy and Judgment in the Holy of Holies prior to the Captivity—enveloped by the Shekinah]. A stream of Fire came forth from His Presence: a thousand thousands [His redeemed Bride] served Him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him (II Timothy 4:8; I Peter 5:2-4; Revelation 2:10; 5:11; 20:4): the court sat and the books were opened” (I Corinthians 6:2).

The two olive trees engraved on the reservoir represent the Absolute of Law under the Old Testament on one side and the Absolute of grace through faith under the New Testament on the other; each is the Word of God that furnishes the reservoir with olive oil burned in the seven lamps to shine the Light of God’s will to an election of Abraham’s natural seed and for the elect of Abraham’s spiritual seed in an otherwise dark world. The natural types the spiritual; the first lamp was lit by sacred fire ignited by God at the dedication of the Tabernacle (Leviticus 9:24). The second lamp was then lit from the flame of the first, and the holy Fire transferred thus until all seven lamps were burning. This typed the inauguration of the Church on the day of Pentecost when the Shekinah settled as tongues of Fire upon each of the saints, and Peter in accordance with Jesus’ promise unlocked the Kingdom of heaven by the keys of faith for three thousand elect Israelites and proselytes to Yahwism who received the baptism with the Holy Spirit or new birth (Matthew 16:19; Acts 2:1-42); then for the elect Samaritans (Acts 8:14-17), and finally for the elect Gentiles (Acts 10:34-48). The Life has passed through the Body from one Age to the next by the Messenger or “angel” or by a prophet under the Law who came at the end of each Age with the Word for the new dispensation.

Breach between the Church Ages and the SealsPeter described “the keys of the Kingdom of heaven”  (Matthew 16:19) as “the present Truth” (II Peter 1:12). Since there are nine separate dispensations within the Gentile dispensation—Alpha or Pentecost, seven Church Ages, and Omega, the Capstone Age of this present holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the antitype of Israel’s Pentecostal feast as illustrated on this diagram—entered only by a clear understanding of the “key” Word of truth revealed for the current dispensation. One must possess the revelations of the previous Ages, but what baptized the saints into Christ in past dispensations will not give the new birth in this day; we must “walk in the Light as He is in that Light” not impersonate the glare of a day gone by (I John 1:7).

The Holy Bible is the story of God unfolding Himself or changing His form from the eternal Spirit alone with His eternal thoughts to their manifestation in the flesh of His glorified family. Christ is “the beginning of the creation of God” and His Bride of all Ages is the continuation of the same creation. Likewise Adam was the beginning of the creation of man and Eve was a continuation of the same creation. Jesus said, “As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world,” and “You are the Light of the world” (Matthew 5:14-16; John 9:5). In Christ we are deity manifest, as symbolized by the Lampstand that was beaten from one piece of pure gold (Exodus 37:17-22). In Revelation 4:5 after the close of the Laodicean Church Age (at Revelation 3:22) we see “seven lamps of Fire burning before the Throne, which are the seven Spirits of God” that anointed the angels to the Church Ages to impart His Life by faith to the elect of those PART-Word dispensations that they might shine His Light in the otherwise dark world, but Laodicea is fulfilled and the seven portions of the Spirit are back before the Throne, which is no longer the Throne of Mercy, but of Judgment.

the Church Ages and angelsAs Jesus explains in Revelation 1:20: “The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven lampstands which you saw are the seven churches.” An angel or messenger was sent to each Church Age. Each man was born-again toward the end of the previous Age where their ministry rebuked and corrected those who had relapsed from that Message and began to teach the Message for the new Age as the Lord unveiled it to him. As the Israelite priest transferred the holy Fire from the altar to the first lamp, then from the first lamp to the second, and from the second lamp to the third, so Paul who was reborn by the Fire that lit the wicks of the Pentecostal saints kindled the saints of the Ephesian Age by the new Message. Then Irenaeus who was born-again in the Ephesian Church Age passed the Fire to the saints of the Smyrnean Church Age, and so-on. Only the angel can cross into the full Light of the new Age, so Brother Branham who is a Laodicean or Pentecostal Age saint was able to introduce Christ, the fullness of the Light or Capstone revelation, while his Pentecostal brethren could apprehend little of his new, post-Seals Message ordained to bring Christ’s end-time Bride to new birth and maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.

In order to be born-again we must recognize our day and it’s Message, otherwise we will be “souls in prison now” impersonating the Word for a day gone by—even if we are in the circle of this Message.

Zechariah 4:4-10, “Then I asked [Brother Branham] the angel that talked with me, what are these, my lord? The angel that talked with me answered; do you not know what these are? And I said, No, my lord. Then he said, This is the Word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: Not by the might [of many], nor by the power [of one man], but by My Spirit, says the Lord of hosts. Who are you before Zerubbabel, O great mountain? Be a plain! He shall bring forth the Capstone accompanied with shouts of, Grace, grace to it, [and to the Temple or the Body of Christ which it represents, that it stand fast forever”] (Daniel 2:40-45)!

“Moreover the Word of the Lord came to me, saying, The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to you. For whoever has despised the day of small things shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven, for they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth”.

The vision embodied a prophecy intended in the first instance to encourage Zerubbabel in the work of reconstructing the Temple assuring him that the metaphorical mountain of difficulties before him will be made a plain by the grace of God, and without the intervention of human strength of any description the Holy Spirit will accomplish the work so that the Capstone shall be brought forth from the place where it was turned from rude matter into due form, and the completed work hailed as wholly of “grace” (Isaiah 46:30; Joel 2:32; Zechariah 14:4-8; Matthew 21:42).

It was as the Lord told Paul, “My grace is sufficient for you: for My strength is made perfect in your weakness. [To which Paul said within himself], Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me . . . for when I am weak then am I strong” (II Corinthians 12:9-10).

The menorah that burned continually in the Holy Place of the Temple could give light only by grace of a plentiful supply of olive oil. Likewise the restoration of the Temple can only be attained by reliance on the blessed agency of the Holy Spirit. In the antitype the Lampstand represents Christ’s Bride of all Ages who are lively stones in the Temple of the Body of the Lord. “In Revelations 1:12-13 we find Jesus standing in the seven Church Ages, the seven golden candlesticks, when John turned and saw “One like the Son of man standing clothed with a . . .” it was the Bride standing in the candlesticks drawed out [from all seven Church Ages]” (Why We are not a Denomination, p. 37:182). Christ and His Bride are one: deity beaten from one piece of Gold, the Logos. Zerubbabel represents Brother Branham, the angel to the seventh Church Age, the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6 and Matthew 17:11 who explained, “The Elijah of this day is the Lord Jesus Christ [veiled behind the flesh of His Prophet] according to Luke 17:30” (Trying to do God a Service without it being God’s Will, p. 33:212).

“Christ being the chief corner stone” (Ephesians 2:20), Brother Branham like Zerubbabel restored “that foundation, which is [the faith of] Jesus Christ [revealed to Paul who wrote the New Testament” (I Corinthians 3:10-12; Galatians 1:8), “not in enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in evidence of the Spirit and power: that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God” (I Corinthians 2:4-5; Luke 17:28-30).

Like governor Zerubbabel whose hands laid the foundation of the restored stone house of the Lord and whose hands also brought forth the capstone, the spirit of Elijah in John the Baptist introduced Christ the foundation of God’s true House (Malachi 3:1; 4:6a; I Corinthians 3:11) and the spirit of Elijah in Brother Branham restored the foundation stone of “that Temple made not with hands” and “also finished it,” introducing Christ the Capstone (Malachi 4:6b; Matthew 17:11; Ephesians 2:20). He called God’s elect out from the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and her harlot daughters into the faith of Jesus Christ. Out from Apostles’ Creeds (so-called), pagan trinity doctrines and false baptisms in three Titles instead of the Name of our LORD JESUS CHRIST; out from theology and human learning into the Foundation “by My Spirit” confirmed from Genesis to Revelation. When the Lord opened the Seven Seals he introduced the Capstone; and as the foundation was rejected by the Israelite builders at His first Coming, the Capstone was rejected by the denominational builders at His second Coming; but we shout, “Grace, grace, amazing grace unto it!”

God hides in humility and reveals Himself in such simplicity “these things are hid from the wise and prudent, and revealed to babes” (Luke 10:21). Or as Paul declared: “Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the Gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but to us who are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Judahites require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumblingblock, and to the Greeks foolishness; but to those who are called, both Judahites and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For you see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and base things of the world, and things which are despised, has God chosen, yes, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: so no flesh should glory in His Presence” (I Corinthians 1:17-29).

Thus Zechariah also reproved the ungrateful incredulity of those who despised the humble beginnings of his monumental undertaking; and encouraged them with the assurance their progress in the work, though small, is an earnest of great and final success, because the eyes of the Lord, the sevenfold Spirit of God, are upon Zerubbabel and gladly see the plumbline in his hand judging the work whether it is good and true and fit for the Temple, indicating the work is going forward to its completion, and they support him with God’s favor. They “run to and fro through the whole Earth” so nothing escapes the eye of Jehovah, thus He can ward off all danger from His people, from whatever quarter it may come, in prosecuting His work (Proverbs 15:3; I Corinthians 16:9).

In Zechariah’s fourth and fifth visions the eyes were engraved in the Capstone, and the Capstone is Christ and His Bride, but when John—that is, you, as a member of Christ’s end-time Bride—saw the vision after the close of the Laodicean Church Age you saw “a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth” (Revelation 5:6). The explanation in the following Scriptures illustrates the oneness of Christ and His Bride through the invisible marriage union, which is the redemption and reunion of Attributes of the Logos with the Logos that He may gather glory to Himself by grace through faith.

II Corinthians 5:14-17, “Because Christ died for all of the elect, all are accounted as having died in Him on Calvary [as we are Attributes of the Logos] . . . Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation: old things have passed away; a new Life has begun”.

Romans 8:29-30, “Those whom God foreknew [as Attributes in the Logos] He also predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Those whom He predestinated He also called; and those whom He called He also justified; and those whom He justified He has also glorified”.

In the antitype Christ has returned in Judgment in the office of Son of man; His plumbline is the THUS SAITH THE LORD of the seventh Angel’s Message. I Corinthians 3:11-15, “No other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any one builds his Temple for the Holy Spirit on this foundation with [carnal materials such as] gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, or stubble, [trinities, catechisms, baptisms in three titles, or Apostles’ creeds (so-called)] the day of judgment will declare it [for Christ’s end-time Bride that day is now (I Timothy 5:24)], because it shall be revealed by [the Holy Spirit and] Fire [which falls on the just and on the unjust (Matthew 3:11; 5:45)]. Fire will test the quality each one’s work [whether it be revelation or guesswork]. Then every [elect] workman who has built on the foundation with the right materials, and whose work abides, will receive his reward. But if the house he has built burns up, he will suffer great loss, though he [as a foolish virgin] will be saved and purged through the fire of the tribulation”.

Make sure you are building your Temple of the Holy Spirit on a clear revelation of the Word for this hour unlocked by the keys of the Message of the seventh angel who talked with Zechariah in his visions, not recitations of Message quotes learned without understanding, and which will place you in the great tribulation.

Christ will gather His children Home for the wedding supper of the Lamb in the sky, and following the consummation of life we will all return to Earth for the millennium when we shall “tread down the wicked; for they will be [atomic] ashes under the soles of our feet” (Malachi 4:3; Matthew 3:12).

Zechariah 4:11-14, “Then Zechariah asked, What are these two olive trees on the right and left side of the Lampstand? And what are the two branches which by two golden spouts empty the golden oil out of themselves into the reservoir? And he said, Do you not know not what these are? And I said, No, my lord. Then he said, These are the two anointed ones who stand by the Lord of the whole Earth”.

Ark of the CovenantThe two branches or “anointed ones” that are engraved on the reservoir (as the “seven eyes” are engraved on the Capstone) signify “the two anointed ones who stand by the Lord of the whole Earth”—as Christ will be called in “the Day of the Lord” when the Seventh Trump sounds the close of the Gentile dispensation (Zechariah 14:9; Daniel 2:44; Revelation 11:15) and His ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel. They will be the “two witnesses” of Revelation 11:3-4. “These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the Lord of the earth.” Two Israelite prophets—not Jews—anointed with the Spirit that endued Elijah the prophet and Moses the lawgiver.

Ultimately the two offices will be united in Jesus Messiah as Son of David. This was foreshadowed to Abraham in His encounter with Melchisedec who is the Father of the Son. Hebrews 7:1-3, “This Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; to whom Abraham gave a tenth part of all, is first, by translation of His Name, King of righteousness, and then He is King of Salem, which is, King of peace. He is without father or mother or genealogy, and has neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made to resemble the Son of God, He remains a priest forever”.

Jesus Messiah is Melchisedec manifest in virgin-born flesh to fulfill the part of Adam’s Kinsman Redeemer. Isaiah 44:6, 24: “Thus says the Lord the King of Israel, and his Redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside Me there is no God . . . Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, and He who formed you from the womb, I am the Lord who makes all things; who stretched forth the heavens alone; who spread abroad the earth by Myself(Revelation 1:11, 17-18). There was no trinity of gods at creation, so there is no trinity of gods in eternity. Our Redeemer is the One Person of God, whose compound redemptive Name is LORD JESUS CHRIST.

When the 144,000 elect Israelites catch the revelation of Messiah’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming they will see Him riding a white horse to judge and make war with the beast and the kings of the earth, and their armies, and “on His robe and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS” (Revelation 19:11, 17). But before Jesus can restore the kingdom to Israel, He must take His impersonator, the Devil-incarnate Judaeo-Roman pope who, as “VICARIVS FILII DEI,” claims he is King of kings and Lord of Lords. Satan’s church organized at the First Nicaea Council in AD325 when Roman Emperor Constantine and “those who say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan” made a universal religion in union with the state—a form of superpower that will rule the world to the consummation. At that time Jesus will cast the beast and the false prophet that wrought miracles in his presence into the lake of Fire burning with brimstone (Revelation 19:20). The (once) Protestant United States is the image to the beast whose two horns—church and state, Judaeo-Roman ecclesiastical and civil powers—will unite to force Rome’s trinity doctrine, which is the mark of the beast, on pain of death as Jesus prophesied in Revelation 13:11-18.

God has allowed Judaeo-Communism to raise up in Russia, financed by tax-exempt US foundations, to destroy Vatican City State (Revelation 18:7-20) and the United States of America. Of the last of seven major continuous visions the Lord showed him in June 1933 Brother Branham said, “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.” For Daniel 9:27 prophesied, “The prince [or pope] of Rome will confirm a covenant with the Jews [and their international banksters to refinance the US dollar with gold backing] for one week [of seven years]: and in the midst of the week he will cause the sacrifice and the oblation [which they will have restored] to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations [making himself god and forcing his trinitarian religion (II Thessalonians 2:3-12; Revelation 13:15-18)] he will make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolator.” Then the nations that “receive power as kings one hour with Rome and with one mind, give their power and strength to the beast. . . shall hate the whore, and will make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her [and obviously her US image] with [nuclear] fire,” (Revelation 17:12-18). nl868.htm

Historic Speech in Damascus sends Shockwaves around the World

Magen David

December 13, 2014 — Last week Gordon Duff, Senior Editor of Veterans Today delivered an Historic Keynote Address at the International Conference on Combating Terrorism and Religious Extremism held in Damascus, Syria. This speech is sending shock-waves around the World . . .

Duff explained that what is going on in Iraq and Syria with ISIS is not Terrorism, it is simply CRIME. That is, it is the works of an international Crime Cabal which has gotten control of the American Congress. Yes, this is a large Organized Crime problem that must be understood at its simple root cause.

Duff identified this Crime Cabal as Israeli and pointed out that this is Worldwide Crime on a scale never experienced before.

Duff explained how the illegal Supreme Court Decision of Citizens United made it possible for an Israeli-American Organized crime magnate now operating out of Macao, Sheldon Adelson to essentially buy control of both Houses of Congress in the last election and being able to bring Congress under control of this International Crime Syndicate which specializes in human trafficking and narcotics.

Duff also identified American Generals McInerney and Vallely as being involved in organizing Daish along with Senator John McCain.

He also pointed out that Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel [who has just resigned] was the one that prevented the American bombing of Syria in response to the False-Flag gas attack at Aleppo, Syria.

This keynote address delivered by Gordon Duff was historic because for the very first time ever a Top Intel and Security Consultant publicly explained how the problem with ISIS/Daish is not terrorism but is Crime. He clarified that ISIS/Daish is a result of Criminal Behavior of an Israeli-based International Crime Syndicate which essentially bought control over the US Congress during the last election.

Here is Gordon Duff’s keynote speech which was historical and is now sending shock-waves around the World.

It should now be clear to everyone that the creation of ISIS/Daish occurred not because of Terrorism, but because of the undue influence exercised on the American Political system by this Israeli based Crime Syndicate in which a faction inside the American Congress, Military and Intel has been manipulated into supporting the creation of ISIS/Daish.

It is easy to imagine why Duff’s frank disclosure in his keynote address that the real problem on the ground in Iraq and Syria is Crime and the handy-work of an international Israeli Crime Cabal immediately changed the tone of the conference, and is now sending shock-waves around the World.

This is the first time ever that these issues have been clarified for the Syrian Security Services and Military as well as to Intel, Military and Diplomatic representatives from all over the World.

In days and weeks to follow it is expected that such an Historic disclosure based on hard Intel will change the scope and tone of the discussion about what is really going on in Iraq and Syria on the ground and how a worldwide criminal enterprise is behind it . . .

GHW Bush outside the book repisitory, Sealy Plaza, Aallas Tx, at the time of JKF's assassination No criminal Cabal or conspiracy this large can exist without utmost secrecy, which no longer exists thanks to Duff’s keynote address and complete disclosure . . . Thanks to Duff the Jig is about up for this International Israeli linked Crime Cabal, some have identified as the International Zionist Crime Cabal (IZCS) which has formed an alliance with the Bush Crime Cabal (BCC) which is now being completely identified all over the Worldwide Internet. It is now realized by many that the BCC was formed when Bush I ran the Assassination of JFK and rose to power, able to deeply embed his operatives in the CIA, the Military, Congress, the Department of Justice and the Judiciary.

Now if anyone doubts that ISIS/Daish was set up under the Money Power of the International Zionist Crime Cabal (IZCS) [note the cabala] operating out of Israel which has now gained Control of the US Congress, consider this. All ISIS/Daish wounded are taken to Israel for medical treatment, all expenses paid and those that can be are returned to Iraq or Syria to attack, torture, murder and asset strip innocent civilians, pretending to be Islamic Terrorists. This is all done in order to create mass confusion and to empower those governments that exist off the spoils of pushing solutions to their synthetic terrorism which is really nothing more than a massive Organized Crime Operation to make money and accrue more power. How do we know that the Criminal cabal has truly gained control over the US Congress? We now have actual specific evidence which has uncovered the Crime Cabal’s control over Congress through the use of large bribes and threats of assassination . . .

And the worst of all this is the ability of the Crime Cabal to use American Generals and a sitting US Senator to start up and run ISIS/ISIL/Daish. This is truly disgusting but there is actually even more to this story. Because the honest faction of the US Military is now targeting some ISIS positions, what we actually have now is a Secret American Civil War being fought in Iraq. And now China has offered military help to the Iraqi government. Unless John McCain is stopped in his rise to become Chairman of the Armed Service Committee, he may be able to exert serious pressure and be able to push America into another War in Iraq (maybe Syria, Iran and the Ukraine too) and his actions could trigger a nuclear WW3 with the Russian Federation and President Putin who has just about had enough . . .

Comment: Resting from the MH370 and MH317 false flag/black flag ops, Australia has experienced what appears to be another staged or false flag/black event right in Sydney’s CBD incriminating protagonists in the long-planned World War III and other “Muslim terrorist” false flags worldwide. The gunman shot one and police shot him and one of his hostages. The media have compared it to the 1985 Port Arthur Massacre in Tasmania allegedly by the CIA in which thirty-five were killed and innocent Martin Bryant imprisoned without trial and his wealth expropriated.


Role of 9/11 in justifying Torture and War: Criminalization of the US State Apparatus. Senate Report on CIA Torture a Whitewash

December 11, 2014 — We all know by now that the 9/11 official narrative is a fabrication. The official 9/11 story is that Osama bin Laden was behind the 9/11 attacks. Lest we forget, bin Laden was hospitalized in a Pakistani military hospital in Rawalpindi on September 9, 2001.

9/11 was used as a pretext, a casus belli to wage an illegal war against Afghanistan. What we are dealing with is the criminalization of the US State apparatus.

Jihadists were not behind the 9/11 attacks. The evidence points to a conspiracy at the highest levels of US government including the involvement of the intelligence apparatus . . .

Nobody is to be held responsible. The report is in essence a political whitewash . . . The fact that torture has been routinely applied since the establishment of the CIA under the Truman presidency, extensively applied in Latin America, Africa and South East Asia, is casually dismissed . . . Every single administration since the end of World War II has endorsed the practices of torture . . . Today’s legal system in America has all the essential features of an inquisitorial order, which supports torture and provides a green light to CIA atrocities . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca


The Russian Roadblock: Bilderberg vs. Putin

December 10, 2014 — Daniel Estulin, the foremost (non-member) expert on Bilderberg, reported in June 2012 that the “top headache” for the Bilderberg participants at that May 2012 meeting was Russian President Vladimir Putin because of his “opposition to war in Syria and Iran,” his “belligerence with respect to US bases encircling Russia,” his “insistence on maintaining state sovereignty intact,” and his plans for another natural gas pipeline to Europe (South Stream) that “could turn into a major victory for Russia” at the expense of competing plans (the Nabucco pipeline) backed by Bilderberg members . . .

BilderbergEstulin noted a Bilderberg “campaign to delegitimize Putin,” financed by “some very angry and powerful Anglo-American elites.” Present at that 2012 conclave were top executives from Royal Dutch Shell (CEO Peter Voser and Chair Jorma Ollila) and BP (CEO Robert Dudley). Also present was then-Massachusetts Senator John Kerry, now US Secretary of State . . .

Interestingly, Daniel Estulin further reported that at the May 2012 Bilderberg meeting, “. . . one European Bilderberger openly admitted [that] ‘Putin is by far the most formidable opponent in the world stage to our plans.’ What makes [the] Bilderberg position that much more difficult is Putin’s moral position in ‘protecting and promoting its [Russia’s] national interest’.”

In other words, Putin had done nothing wrong, and the Bilderberg participants knew it. But he is in the way of “our plans,” whatever those may be. Full story: counterpunch.org

Comment: Russia’s rouble resumed its free fall Tuesday as oil prices—the country’s main source of revenue—continued to slide and an extraordinary move by the Russian Central Bank failed to halt the currency’s steady fall. “The situation is critical,” Central Bank Deputy Chairman Sergei Shvetsov said, as Russia faced its worst financial crisis since a debt default in 1998. “Even in our worst dreams we could not have imagined a year ago that something like this was possible” (usatoday.com). Fifteen Russian billionaires lost a total of $8.65 billion in 48 Hours. Jewish-ruled Saudi Arabia is flooding the market with enough cheaply produced oil to all but bury Russia’s oil industry!

Two-thirds of Russia’s foreign currency earnings come from oil exports, which finance half of its annual budget. Forecasts now project Russia will fall into recession next year . . .


San Andreas

December 13, 2014 — Fiction: After the infamous San Andreas Fault finally gives, triggering a magnitude 9 earthquake in California, a search and rescue helicopter pilot (Dwayne Johnson) and his estranged wife make their way together from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save their only daughter. But their treacherous journey north is only the beginning. And when they think the worst may be over . . . it’s just getting started. Full story: youtube.com

Comment: Fact: Instead of heeding the warning from God’s Prophet, Hollywood’s Mammonite Jews are out to make a buck. The sinking of Los Angeles, Hollywood, and a 1,500×300-400 mile segment of earth’s crust beneath the ocean will be far worse than the movie, moving earth from its axis with tidal waves washing Islands and coastlines around the world. Scores if not hundreds of millions will perish on that day (Revelation 16:18-20; 18:21-24).

The Mammonites have an incorrect date in the trailer if the earthquake takes place next year. I feel next year will begin global depression and 2016 the earthquake ending the Gentile dispensation with the destruction of the Dome on the Rock igniting the “hot stage” of the ongoing World War III which will see Israel and the United States defeated, the collapse of the US dollar, all other currencies and global economic collapse. We shall see.

‘Prescient’ Jewish war criminal Henry Kissinger, speaking at Evian, France, on 21 May 1992 stated: “Today Americans would be outraged if UN troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or PROMULGATED, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government” . . .

His forebears caused the atomic reaction that brought the Great Flood and he appears to confirm they have planned the sinking of Los Angeles by an “outside threat from beyond [the US], whether real or PROMULGATED” by the ‘hidden hand’.


Chinese Academic: China using Jewish Model to take over US & West

November 25, 2014 — Indian business students read Mein Kampf, westerners Machiavelli and Sun Tzu. The Chinese? They study Jewish tribal evolutionary strategy.

“Do the Jews Really Control America?” asked a top Chinese newsweekly newspaper recently.

“That’s what the data shows us. It is undeniable from my perspective.” Professor Xu Xin told the IB Business Times when asked this question at a Jewish study group in late October. “They run your media, univerisities and much of your government.”

The professor and his colleagues are so convinced that the Jews run the west, particularly, the US, that they’ve conducted a study to see “how the Chinese can follow suit and match Jewish success running western institutions.”

“Yes I think it is obvious that Jews control western world. They tell you who to wage war on, who to fight, who to support and how to spend your money. This is what we Chinese want to understand when we study Jewish dominance and hegemony of west.” Professor Xu Xin stated in the recent IB interview . . .

“There are literally so many instances of how you have fallen for Jewish tricks. Hitler was the last person to openly contest Jewish rule and look how he is viewed. He is hated because of what Jews taught you with their films and books. We Chinese are amused at how gullible white men are. We want to find the same way to shape your thoughts. This is why we study them (Jews) . . .”

The Chinese recognise the world’s wealth is still in Americans’ pockets and Americans are in Jews’ pockets.

Although this would rightly be seen as alarming in other contexts, it is seen as academic study here in China. In China, where Jews are widely perceived as clever and accomplished, they are meant as compliments. Scan the shelves in any bookstore in China and you are likely to find best-selling self-help books based on Jewish knowledge. Most focus on how to make cash. Titles range from 101 Money Earning Secrets From Jews’ Notebooks to Learn To Make Money With the Jews . . .” Full story: europeanknightsproject.com


No autism in never-vaccinated Children

“I have not seen autism with the Amish,” said Dr. Frank Noonan, a family practitioner in Lancaster County, Pa., who has treated thousands of Amish for a quarter-century. “You’ll find all the other stuff, but we don’t find the autism. We’re right in the heart of Amish country and seeing none, and that’s just the way it is.”

In Chicago, Homefirst Medical Services treats thousands of never-vaccinated children whose parents received exemptions through Illinois’ relatively permissive immunization policy. Homefirst’s medical director, Dr. Mayer Eisenstein, told us he is not aware of any cases of autism in never-vaccinated children; the national rate is 1 in 175, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “We have a fairly large practice,” Eisenstein told us. “We have about 30,000 or 35,000 children that we’ve taken care of over the years, and I don’t think we have a single case of autism in children delivered by us who never received vaccines. “We do have enough of a sample,” Eisenstein said. “The numbers are too large to not see it. We would absolutely know. We’re all family doctors. If I have a child with autism come in, there’s no communication. It’s frightening. You can’t touch them. It’s not something that anyone would miss.”

Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, a Florida family practitioner with ties to families who homeschool their children for religious reasons, told Age of Autism he has proposed such a study in that group. “I said I know I can tap into this community and find you large numbers of unvaccinated homeschooled,” said Bradstreet, “and we can do simple prevalence and incidence studies in them, and my gut reaction is that you’re going to see no autism in this group” . . .

Publick Notice

In 1660 the Massachusetts Bay Colony passed a statute saying, “The Observance of Christmas having been deemed a sacrilege, the exchanging of gifts and greetings, dressing in fine clothings, feasting and similar satanical practices, are hereby FORBIDDEN, with the offender liable to a fine of five shillings.

Opposition to the observance of Christmas continued just past the second half of the Nineteenth Century. An article in the December 26, 1855 edition of the New York Daily Times stated:

“The churches of the Presbyterians, Baptists and Methodists were not open on December 25 except where some mission schools had a celebration. They do not accept the day as a holy one, but the Episcopalian, Catholic and German churches were all open. Inside they were decked with evergreens.”

The Puritans knew the truth about Christmas and regarded it as a pagan holiday. It would be good if all believers followed their example. Christmas is not “the foundation of the apostles and prophets” upon which Christ built His Church.

The Bible is God’s complete and final revelation to man, and it tells us everything we need to know for our spiritual lives (II Timothy 3:16). We don’t have to go outside the Bible for anything. God’s Word tells us how we’re to worship, how we’re to give money for the support of the Lord’s work, how to evangelize the lost, how to observe the Lord’s Supper and everything else pertaining to the Christian life. But not once in the Bible does God tell us to celebrate Christmas! We’re told to remember the Lord’s death, but nowhere are we told to celebrate His birth.

God’s people are supposed to be Bible people. We are supposed to live by the teaching of the God’s holy Word. So the very fact that Christmas is never mentioned in the Bible is sufficient reason for us not to have anything to do with it. But that’s not all.

Christmas started with the sun worshipers in the time of Nimrod, the man who supervised the building of the tower of Babel. And that’s another reason why I don’t celebrate Christmas. Thousands of years before Jesus was born, heathens in every country observed December 25th as the birthday of a god who was called the sun-god. Semiramis, the widow of Nimrod, was his mother. She claimed to be the queen of heaven. And she had a son who was supposed to have been born on December 25th; his name was Tammuz.

According to all the heathen religions of that time, Tammuz had a miraculous birth; and for centuries his birthday was celebrated with feasts, revelry and drunken orgies. The heathen celebrated Tammuz’ birthday according to the very example he set for them. He was the world’s greatest lover of women, strong drink, dirty jokes and other sensual fun. It is said that he loved everybody and that everybody loved him. And it was on December 25th that all the pagan religions celebrated the birthday of Tammuz, the son-god.

This is all clearly brought out in Alexander Hislop’s great book, The Two Babylon’s.” Any reputable encyclopedia will also verify these facts.

“Christmas was NOT, according to many authorities celebrated in the first centuries of the Christian churches as Christian usage in general was to celebrate the death of remarkable persons rather than their birth. A feast was established in memory of the birth of the Saviour in the FOURTH CENTURY. In the Fifth Century the Western Church (Roman Catholic) ordered it to be celebrated forever on the day of the old Roman feast of the birth of Sol. The holly, mistletoe, the yule log and the wassail bowl are of pre-Christian times. The Christmas tree has been traced back to the Romans. It went from Germany to Great Britain” (Encyclopedia Americana).

“Christmas (i.e., the Mass of Christ) was not among the earliest festivals of the church” (Encyclopedia Britannica).

After Constantine became Emperor of Rome, he forced all the pagans of his empire to be baptized into the Church. Thus pagans far outnumbered true Christians.

Since the church worshiped the Lord Jesus as the Son of God, when the 25th of December rolled around and the pagans wanted to worship Tammuz, their sun-god, Constantine knew that he would have to do something. So he had the church combine the worship of Tammuz with the birthday of Christ, and a special mass was declared to keep everyone happy. Thus pagan worship was brought into the Christian church and called “Christ-mass”.

The exchanging of gifts, the Christmas tree, the singing of carols and Santa Claus are all pagan origin. These all crept into the church during or after the Fourth Century.

After Constantine became the Emperor of Rome he forced all the pagans of his empire to be baptized into the Church. Thus pagans far outnumbered true Christians.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, the famous English preacher of Nineteenth Century, said:

“We have no superstitious regard for times and seasons. Certainly we do not believe in the present ecclesiastical arrangement called Christmas . . . we find no scriptural word whatever for observing any day as the birthday of the Saviour; and consequently, it’s observance is a superstition, because (it’s) not of divine authority . . . probably the fact is that the ‘holy days’ (were) arranged to fit in with the heathen festivals . . . how absurd to think we could do it in the spirit of the world, with a Jack Frost clown, a deceptive worldly Santa Claus, and a mixed program of sacred truth with fun, deception, and faction.”


Zechariah’s Fourth Vision

In the third successive vision of Zechariah’s apocalypse the Lord laid a sure foundation for the glowing assurances and promises contained in his first and second visions by revealing the fact of divine forgiveness. Sin had been the cause of all of Israel’s previous troubles, and its continuance would bring them all back (Matthew 12:43-45). Hence the need and value of the great truth expressed in the dramatic form and rich symbolism of this his fourth vision.

Zechariah’s expansive and unambiguous revelation of the universality of the Messianic dispensation is apparent even on a perfunctory assessment of his visions which saw the Kingdom of Israel enlarged by the union of myriads of Christians from every Adamic family (Isaiah 2:1-4; 65:18-19; Micah 4:1-5), with the boundaries of the Old Covenant enlarged until they are coextensive with the limits of the habitable earth (Zechariah 6:15; 8:20-23; 9:10; 14:9-16). He foresees the sacred inscription on the crown of the high priest, HOLINESS TO THE LORD, that proclaimed his entire consecration to the priestly function, engraved hereafter even on the bells of the horses in token of the fact all creation is to be holy in communion with He who is Most Holy.

Zechariah’s Fourth Vision

Zechariah 3:1-5, “The interpreting angel [William Branham] showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord [as mediator interceding in behalf of Jerusalem], with Satan standing at his right hand to oppose him. But the Lord said to Satan, I reject your accusations, Satan; I the Lord [who now and habitually] choose Jerusalem [through election (I Peter 1:2)] rebuke you: Jerusalem (Zechariah 2:12) is as a burning stick plucked out of the fire.”

“Now Joshua was standing before the Angel of the Lord clad in filthy garments, [representing the abject state of the priesthood and people at the return from Babylon]. And the Angel said to those ministering before him, Remove the filthy garments from him. And turning to Joshua he said, I have removed the iniquity [of that land (verse 9)] that was upon you, and I will clothe you with high priestly festal robes of “beauty and glory” [dignifying imputed righteousness]. And I said, Let them put a clean turban [emblematic of purity and forgiveness] on his head. So they put a clean turban on his head, and dressed him in garments while the Angel of the Lord stood by [presiding over and approving the ceremony].”

In these first five verses Joshua the high priest of the restoration of the Temple stands before the Angel of the Lord opposed by Satan. And there was no denying the truthfulness of Satan’s accusations, but Joshua is forgiven, and instead of damning the office of Israel’s high priest and mediator, the iniquities he bears in behalf of Israel are forgiven and placed on Satan’s account—not because Joshua or Israel is innocent—but in the sovereign grace and purpose of God’s elective love. Had the Lord cast off Judah entirely as He did Israel and recalled His grace promised to the patriarchs, there would be no room for Messiah to appear in accordance with the ancient prophecies, for the confessed sins of Israel sufficed to secure their final rejection from God and thus eliminate the prospect of a blessing for all families of Adam’s race.

Jerusalem is as “a firebrand plucked out of the burning” as Amos prophesied when he foretold how the Lord would “sift the house of Israel among all nations as one shakes a sieve, yet not the least elect grain will fall to the earth, but all the sinners who boast, “God will not harm us—[we are g_d’s chosen people”]—will die by the sword of God’s Word during the great tribulation (Revelation 19:15). In that day the Lord will restore the fallen tabernacle of David—the whole house of Israel—not Jewry—as the millennium temple of David’s greater Son, Jesus Messiah, built of 144,000 elect and precious living stones, 12,000 from each tribe. . .” (Amos 4:11 – 9:15).

Amos prophesied to the Northern kingdom as Zechariah prophesied to the southern kingdom which will be reunited for their common destiny under Christ and His Bride in the millennium. It is interesting to note both prophets are distinguished in their insight into the moral and spiritual meaning of the Mosaic dispensation as “the shadow and type of good things to come and not their very image” (Hebrews 10:1), illustrating Paul’s statement: “the Law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith [not works, as Judaism and Judaeo-Catholicism teach]” (Galatians 3:24).

The former prophet draws from an allusion to the Coming Messiah and the angels to the Seven Church Ages in God’s first Bible, The Gospel in the Stars.” In Amos 5:7-8 he says, “[By your carnal misapplication of the Law and pagan idolatry of the golden calves set up in Bethel and Dan and astrology under the same principle as Rome’s images and icons] you turn justice into an image of bitter wrong, trampling righteousness under foot! Seek Him who made the seven stars [Pleiades] and Orion, and turns darkness into the morning, and darkens the day into night: who calls for the waters of the sea, and pours them out upon the surface of the earth: The Lord is His Name.” Like the Romans, they were worshipping natural types in creation instead of the Creator in His antitypes.

Zechariah draws upon Israel’s high priest and his assistants who minister in the Presence at the Altar of Incense before the Holy of Holies to portray their antitype, Jesus Messiah and the Messengers to the seven Church Ages whose ministries manifest the mystery of God revealed in Israel’s glorified King and His Queen whom Israel must recognize in His ‘parousia’ Coming to them and “anoint the Most Holy Place” (Daniel 9:24) in order for the nation to be born again in one day. And in the last six verses the high priest swears that the priesthood is restored to the repatriated Judahites as a token of the coming Branch whose ministry will remove sin once and for all and restore the Kingdom to Israel.

Zechariah 3:6-10, “The Angel of the Lord solemnly charged Joshua, THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS; If you will walk in My ways, and keep My precepts, then you will also judge [Israel] My house [to ensure its sanctification], and guard My courts [from idolatry and ungodliness], and I will permit you to enter and depart My Presence in the sanctuary among the attendant priests [typed by the Seraphim] in the discharge of your priestly duties.”

The Angel of the Lord addresses both Joshua and his associates who minister in the Holy Place because they are shadows and types of Jesus and His messengers to the coming Church Ages whose ministry would complete the days of grace and mediation and introduce Messiah’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming as King of kings and Judge in the office of Son of man; first to we Gentiles, thence to Israel in “the time of Jacob’s trouble.” If you do not understand why He was once a Mediator, that He has not been a Mediator since the opening of the Seven Seals in 1963, and why we as His end-time Bride and after us our 144,000 Israelite servants neither have nor will require a mediator, you are admonished to study Christ’s Mediation“.

“Listen and take heed, O high priest Joshua, you and your colleagues seated before you: for they are significant men [who type the seven angels to the coming Church Ages (Isaiah 8:18; 20:3; Ezekiel 12:11)], while you, Joshua type My Servant, Messiah, the BRANCH [or offshoot of the almost extinct house of David (Isaiah 11:1; 53:2; Jeremiah 33:15; Ezekiel 34:23-24; Zechariah 6:12)]. In Ezekiel 17:22-24 the Lord having described the house of Judah as the once “high cedar” plucked up by the roots and left to wither and die, declares that He will take from its topmost boughs [the house of David], “a tender twig,” and plant it in Mount Zion where it shall take root, and grow, and spread, until it commands universal admiration so every tree of the field acknowledges its superiority and every fowl of heaven seeks its shelter.

The monarchy which under David and Solomon stood like a majestic and wide-spreading tree now lies in ruins—its huge trunk cut down, mangled, burned. But from the stump there should come a slender shoot, which in the course of time (from lowly, unpretentious and uncompromising origins) should grow up into a mighty monarch of the forest, putting out limbs and foliage under which whole nations should collect themselves.

The term “Branch” does not refer to a limb in the sense of one upon many on the same tree but one shoot that springs up from the root, and which, though small at first, becomes a tree of wonderful qualities. Brother Branham often spoke of grafted branches, citing the example of an orange tree into which lime, lemon, grapefruit, mandarin and other citrus branches are grafted. These he likens to denominations—all are grafted into the Vine but each bears its own fruit—the Anglican bears more Anglicans, the Baptist more Baptists, and Pentecostals multiply Pentecostals, whereas when the Tree puts forth a new branch it bears Christians—“written epistles of the present Truth!” Jesus said, “Let them grow together until the harvest,” at which time they will be known by their fruits, or revelation! “The reapers are the angels,” and the seven angels or sevenfold Spirit of God that anointed the messengers to the seven Church Age—Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley and William Branham, each with a measure of the Spirit which together brought the fullness of the Spirit in these last days. Hence Brother Branham said, “The Elijah of this day is the Lord Jesus Christ. He is to come according to Luke 17:30. The Son of man is to reveal Himself among His people: not a man, God. But it’ll come through a prophet” (Trying to do God a Service without it being His Will, p. 33:212). And He will reap by the Prophet’s Message or “midnight cry” of Matthew 25:6, which is the “shout” of I Thessalonians confirmed by the heavenly Voice of Revelation 18:4 calling the wise and foolish virgin out of the vine and into the Root!

He said, “And when I got off the platform, this great leader raised up, he said, “You didn’t mean that,” he said, “we know that we’re all grafted in.” Well, that is true that we are grafted, stump grafted, that’s right; but not in the Vine, grafted”  (ibid, p. 4:31). Jesus was the “Root and Offspring of David,” and we have to be grafted into that Root, not into the branches of Lutheran, Wesleyan, Pentecostal or any other Church Age, but into Christ the Capstone. “The stone which the builders rejected, has become the Head of the Corner [or five-sided Capstone signifying grace (Zechariah 4:7)] this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes” (Matthew 21:42)!

“He will be the Foundation Stone of the true Temple, [a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens (Ephesians 2:20; Hebrews 9:11; I Peter 2:6)] upon that One Stone shall be seven eyes [“which are the sevenfold Spirit of God sent forth into all the earth” as the anointed Messages of seven Church Age Messengers bringing new birth to the elect of each Age (Revelation 5:6)]: behold, I will engrave its inscription [and reveal its mystery in the days of the voice of the Seventh angel (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4, 7)], and by this revelation [through the ministry of Israel’s ‘Moses’ and ‘Elijah’] I will remove the iniquity of the land [of Israel] in one day. In that day, you will all live in peace and prosperity, each with his own home to which he can invite his neighbours to share millennium blessings under his vine and under his fig tree”.

Like Zechariah’s first three visions, his fourth encompasses over 2,500 years from Judah’s return from captivity to restore Jerusalem and rebuild Solomon’s temple to the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel in the millennium; almost the duration of “the times of the Gentiles”.
Body of Christ of all ages
Brother Branham explained, the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to Earth in W_O_R_D form as Paul taught in I Corinthians 13:10: “When the fullness of the Word is come, PART-Word and mediation for ignorance will be done away.” As it is! The Seventh Seal capped the pyramid after the Laodicean Church Age signifying redemption is over and the pyramid of the elect Church and Body of the Lord is completed. His end-time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites foreknown to receive the fullness of the Word were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary. Unlike the PART-Word saints our new birth does not entail intercession; when the last of His end-time Bride recognizes her place in the Word and takes their position in the Body, we will all go Home.

Brother Branham said: Zechariah 3:8-9, “Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that set with thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth My Servant [Christ] the Branch. For behold the Stone that I will lay before Joshua; upon . . . One Stone shall be seven eyes—seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the engraving thereon, saith the LORD of hosts . . . I will remove the iniquity of the land in one day.” Now, let’s turn over to Zechariah 4:10—4:10. Listen.

“For who has despised the day of small things?. . . [God in simplicity. See?] . . . for they shall rejoice, and . . . see the plummet in the hands of Zerubbabel with those seven; these are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth”.

The seven eyes—eyes mean seeing. Seeing means prophets—seers. This Lamb had seven horns, and on each horn had an eye—seven eyes.

What is it? Christ and His Bride. Seven Church Ages, out of there was seven prophets that went forth, seven seers, eyes. So the last one must be a seer. All right (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 102:2-6). It is the pyramid Enoch built, the Bible in stone, Christ’s Kingdom that Zechariah saw in his fourth vision.

Zechariah saw the same visions the Lord showed to John when he was caught up in the Spirit into the yet future Day of the Lord, but with different symbols because in his day the Temple in Jerusalem was God’s chosen place of worship under the blood of natural lambs, whereas John saw the visions at a later stage of their development when God’s chosen place of worship is under the Blood of the risen Lamb and the Temple is our Lord Jesus in “Jerusalem which is above and is free, which is the mother of us all” (Deuteronomy 16:2; Galatians 4:26). This is the vision Christ’s end-time Bride is seeing now, Revelation 5:6: “Between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders I . . . . (your name here) . . . . saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.” So the interpreting angel of Zechariah 3:1 who led he and John to understand their visions has to be the angel to the seventh Church Age, because the mystery of God was sealed to the time of the end, which was the close of the Laodicean Church Age when Christ opened the Seals, and Brother Branham was the one man to whom Jesus revealed these things (Revelation 1:1; 10:4-7; Daniel 12:4, 9).

Before Christ opened the Seven Seals Brother Branham recounted the Spiritual dreams of a number of Brethren concerning the five-sided Capstone, including the dream of Methodist minister Brother Junior Jackson, and he said, “I dreamed a dream,” and there it was [shown to Brother Branham as a vision]. I just set still. And I listened and watched [as the Lord replayed Brother Jackson’s dream in a vision]. He said, “I dreamed that there was a great big hill, like out in a field where bluegrass, or something was.” And said, “Up on top of this hill, where the water had washed away the soil, there was a top rock up on top of the hill; like the top of the mountain. It was rock, no grass. And where the water had washed down, it had cut some kind of readings on these stones, and you were standing there interpreting this reading on these stones.” And said, “All of it. . .” And here’s the way he put it, said, “The brethren from Georgia, and from all around, we were all standing together, listening to you interpret that mysterious writing on those stones . . . that mountain.”

[That was the revelation of the letters to the Seven Church Ages manifest as “written epistles known and read of all men” in the “lively stones” of the Church Age saints who made up the body of the pyramid].

And said, “Then you picked up something, like from the air, something like a wrecking bar, or a crowbar,” wasn’t it, brother? Something like that, a wrecking bar, real sharp, and said, “How you done it, I don’t know.” And said, “You struck the top of that mountain, ripped it around, and lifted the cap of it off. It was in the shape of a pyramid. And you ripped the top of it off.” Now, that was months and months and months before the pyramid message [“The Stature of A Perfect Man October 14, 1962] was preached. And said, “Beneath that was white stone, granite, and you said, ‘The sun, or the light, has never shined on this before. Look in on this. Watch this’.”

“And that’s right, because in the formation of the world, the world was formed before there was light. We all know that. God moved upon the water, and then in the beginning He spoke for light. And naturally, down under there in the age that formation was, that light had never come upon that stone” (Sirs, is this the Sign of the End-Time? p. 14:8 – 15:1).

The natural types the Spiritual: he is speaking of the Capstone of the pyramid, the mystery of God, the unwritten Seventh Seal (Revelation 8:1) or mysteries of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10 sealed from the foundation of the world to the time Christ claimed the Book of redemption and shone the Light on their mystery through His Prophet (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:1-7).

The Prophet continues, “You notice, the writing that was on the rocks; I was interpreting it for them. They were elated. That’s the mystery of God that’s been not understood for years. Could that be that? And then notice. In some mysterious way, we picked up out of the air a sharp tool that opened up the top, and in there was white granite, but it wasn’t interpreted. There was no letters. I didn’t interpret that, Junior. I just looked at it, and said to the brethren, “Look on this,” and that’s fulfilled tonight. While they were studying that, I slipped towards the west. What for? Maybe to understand the interpretation of what’s written in the top of this. Could it be?” (Sirs, is this the Sign of the End-Time? p. 47:6, December 30, 1962).

It was, and Brother Branham announced that in two or three days he and his family would be relocating west to Tucson where he would wait upon the Lord for the interpretation of the mysterious Seven Thunders which is the unwritten Word of the Seventh Seal that unveils the mystery of the Six Written Seals and brought back the fullness of the Word in the ‘parousia’ Coming of the Headstone.

One morning in January, 1963, shortly after he had relocated to Tucson, Brother Branham looked from the window of his apartment to a distant spot in the Catalina Mountains, and heard the Angel of the Lord say to him, “Go there.” At about 8.30 that morning he entered the canyon, drove up as far as he could, and set out on foot. He found himself in Sabino Canyon “up where the eagles were flying”; there in the midst of some jagged rocks he felt the Presence of the Lord and knelt down. Praying holding his hands out to God up on top of that mountain, a Sword dropped into his hand with a pearl handle and a blade about three feet long glistened in the Sun. Then a Voice that shook the canyon said, “This is the King’s Sword.” Later the Angel of the Lord revealed it was the Word in the hand. This was the “crowbar” or “sharp tool” that opened the revelation of the unwritten Seventh Seal that caps the pyramid.

Breach between the Church Ages and the SealsIf you read the following pages of the Seals Book you will find Brother Branham states repeatedly that Christ is no longer a Mediator, and he quotes Daniel 7:10, “the judgment was set and the books were opened.” Christ’s intercession for ignorance of the fullness of the Word is over, because all those predestinated to be the PART-Word members of His Body have been sealed. Hence Brother Branham titled this teaching, The BREACH between the Church Ages and the [Revelation of the Seven] Seals.” A breach is a breaking of covenant as in the violation of a marriage contract, and when the last saint was baptized into the Laodicean part of the Body, Christ found the nominal church “lukewarm” in its affection (Revelation 3:14-20; II Timothy 3; 4). This diagram illustrates the Body at the end of Laodicea but before the Seven Seals were unveiled; their revelation is the sole path whereby Christ’s end-time Bride may cross the chasm into the “door open in heaven” to form His Capstone Bride. “And it only is to be revealed at the last day when this actual Seal is broken. Broken to who? Not to Christ, but to the Church. Notice, now. Oh, my, that just makes me tremble. I hope that the Church truly understands it. (See what I mean?), you people. I’m going to call you Bride. (See?) That you’ll understand it” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 139:7).

He speaks thus because the Church has been called and sealed as per the diagram, and his Message is Matthew 25:6-7, the third exodus calling the Bride OUT of Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches to meet the Bridegroom. “At midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the Bridegroom; come OUT to meet Him”! Then all those virgins [both wise AND foolish] arose, and trimmed their lamps”.

This is the “shout” of I Thessalonians 4:16 confirmed by the heavenly Voice of Revelation 18:4 by means of which the virgins trim their lamps of the carbon of Judaeo-Roman creed and ritual that they may walk in the Light of the present Truth.” Satan is the prince of the power of the air, which is essential to all natural life and a type of the fourth dimension through which we contact the spirit world and receive spiritual Life or death to our soul. Satan’s children make a carnal impersonation by claiming there is too much carbon in the atmosphere when there is no carbon in the atmosphere but 0.0037% carbon dioxide, the essential building block of all life. The whole of creation would benefit were there a far higher percentage of CO2 in our atmosphere, but these Mammonites are the children and servants of the pale horse rider, whose name is Death (I Timothy 6:10; Revelation 6:8).

Now please compare the situation of us Gentiles and indeed the world at the end of the Laodicean Church Age with apostate Israel in the days of Zechariah. Had grace and election not embraced Israel by restoring Joshua, their mediator, there would have been no room for Messiah to appear in accord with the ancient prophecies, for the confessed sins of Israel had been sufficient to secure their final rejection from God and thus eliminate the prospect of a blessing for all families of Adam’s race. Likewise the Gentile Church was apostate “and knew it not” (Revelation 3:17-20) as the Israel nation has been for 2,000 years (Romans 11:25). Since Christ was no longer a Mediator there is no way His end-time Bride could have been born-again to complete the Body had God not ordained Brother Branham to stand in the breach, and no way for Messiah to return to Israel.

Life Magazine May 17, 1963Speaking of the seven angels, seraphim, theophanies or constellation of the seven stars of the Pleiades that type the messengers to the seven Church Ages, Brother Branham described how on March 8 he was caught up into the constellation signified by the Shekinah or Pillar of Cloud that appeared publicly on February 28, 1963 as “the sign of Christ’s [second or ‘parousia’] Coming” (Psalm 19; Zechariah 3:8-9; Matthew 24:3; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7, 16, 20). These photographs were published in the May 17 issue of Life Magazine. “And did you notice that one Angel, I said in there, was a strange Angel? He looked more to me than any of the rest of them. You remember that? They were in a constellation—three on a side and one on top. And the one right next to me here, counting from the left to the right, would’ve been the seventh Angel. He was brighter, meant more to me than the rest of them. You remember, I said he had his chest out like that, and was flying eastward. You remember like that? And I said, “It picked me up, lifted me up.” Do you remember that?”

“Here it is. The one with the Seventh Seal, the thing that I’ve wondered all my life. Amen. Them other Seals meant a lot to me, of course, but, oh, you don’t know what this has meant. . .” (ibid, p. 560:4 – 561:1). “And the Earth was en-lightened with His glory” (Revelation 18:1). Three days after the earthquake that will end the Gentile dispensation this Angel will be seen “ascending from the east, having the Seal of the living God” in the sign of Christ’s ‘parousia’ Coming “and His feet shall stand upon the Mount of Olives” (Zechariah 14:4; Ezekiel 43:2; Matthew 24:30-31; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7). “And the SUN of righteousness will arise with regeneration and resurrection in His beams [first to Christ’s Bride of all Ages, then]. . . to en-Lighten Israel with His glory through the Message of two Hebrew prophets”  (Zechariah 4; Malachi 4:2; Revelation 7:2-8; 11:1-12; Ezekiel 1:28; 10:4).

You too, little Bride, have been caught up into that constellation of angels or Word, that formed and capped the pyramid, for throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ’s end time Bride—not the Church—the Bride. The Church was finished before the Seals were revealed. Revelation 4:1-2, “After this I . . . . (insert your name) . . . . saw, and behold, a door was open in heaven: and the first Voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will show you things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the Spirit: and beheld a throne set in heaven, and One [not three] sat on the throne.”

Having been “enlightened or [illuminated] with His glory” by the Seventh unwritten Seal which is the revelation of the previous six written Seals, you trimmed your wick, entered into and became one with the five-sided stone of Zechariah 3:9, Christ the Capstone, “the living Stone, disallowed by men, but chosen by God, and precious”.

Aren’t you glad that you can say, “I’m one of them”! nl867.htm

Zechariah’s Third Vision

December 11, 2014

Zechariah’s Third VisionPhone

 Bible Believers’ Newsletter 866

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

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are happy to see you.

This week we progress to Zechariah 2 in which the universality of the Messianic dispensation is suggested; not all individuals, but many nations and far off peoples are to be joined to the Lord (Genesis 9:27; Zechariah 6:15; 8:20-23; 9:10; Acts 2:39). The boundaries of the Old Covenant people are to be enlarged until they become coextensive with the limits of the habitable earth (Psalm 22:27; 98:2-3; Isaiah 11:9; 45:6; 52:10; 66:18-23; Zechariah 14:8-9). Indeed in his third consecutive vision Zechariah sees the sacred inscription upon the tiara of the high priest, HOLINESS TO THE LORD, which proclaimed his entire consecration to the sacerdotal function, engraved hereafter upon the bells of the horses in token of the fact that all of His elect are to become a royal priesthood, a holy nation, and that, to such a degree that even the most ordinary functions of life shall be discharged in a the Spirit of holiness (I Peter 2:9; Revelation 1:6).

Our news items are particularly important this week for the US Congress has passed a bill that paves the way for President Obama to declare war against Russia for the sins of the United States and NATO. Russian media is already warning that the recently passed House Resolution 758 could lead to “all-out” war if the US Senate were to pass similar legislation. While President Barack Obama has yet to offer lethal aid and weapons to Ukraine, Canada has already announced they will provide military assistance outside the constraints of NATO.

This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.

US on ‘Hot War Footing’: House Legislation paves Way for War with Russia?

December 5, 2014 — While, a World War Three Scenario has been on the drawing board of the Pentagon for more than ten years, military action against Russia is now contemplated at an “operational level.” Similarly, both the Senate and the House have introduced enabling legislation which provides legitimacy to the conduct of a war against Russia . . . the United Nations has turned a blind eye to extensive war crimes committed by the Western military alliance.

The adoption of a major piece of legislation by the US House of Representatives on December 4th (H. Res. 758) would provide (pending a vote in the Senate) a de facto green light to the US president and commander in chief to initiate—without congressional approval—a process of military confrontation with Russia.

Global security is at stake. This historic vote—which potentially could affect the lives of hundreds of millions of people Worldwide—has received virtually no media coverage. A total media blackout prevails . . . Moscow has responded to US-NATO threats. Its borders are threatened.

On December 3, the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation announced the inauguration of a new military-political entity which would take over in the case of war.

Russia is launching a new national defense facility, which is meant to monitor threats to national security in peacetime, but would take control of the entire country in case of war (RT, December 3, 2014).

In May 2014, the Russian Aggression Prevention Act (RAPA) was introduced in the US Senate (S 2277), calling for the militarization of Eastern Europe and the Baltic States and the stationing of US and NATO troops on Russia’s doorstep . . . its essential premises are already in the process of being implemented. In mid-July, NATO’s Europe commander General Philip Breedlove in consultation with the Pentagon and Britain’s Ministry of Defence, called for: “stockpiling a base in Poland with enough weapons, ammunition and other supplies to support a rapid deployment of thousands of troops against Russia” (RT, July 24, 2014). . .

Comment: More prophecy being fulfilled as the result of the apostasy of the once-Christian West. The United States rejected her last opportunity for national repentance in 1956/57 (William Branham, He that is in You, p. 10:48). The USA will be defeated and briefly occupied in her war of aggression against Russia, integrity and honest dealing.

Ron Paul: Today the US House passed what I consider to be one of the worst pieces of legislation ever. H. Res. 758 was billed as a resolution “strongly condemning the actions of the Russian Federation, under President Vladimir Putin, which has carried out a policy of aggression against neighboring countries aimed at political and economic domination.” In fact, the bill was 16 pages of war propaganda that should have made even Neocons blush, if they were capable of such a thing . . .

6,000 Ukrainian Jewish Refugees to be granted Israeli Citizenship while West supports Neo-Nazi Parties

December 04, 2014 — The rapid spread of ultra nationalism, overtly Nazi Parties and militia, and their rapid rise to power during the Western-backed “Euro-Maidan” protests in Kiev has resulted in pogroms and threats against Jews and Jewish communities throughout Ukraine with the exception of the areas in the rebelling Donbass region which are firmly under the control of the rebelling regional governments, as well as with the exception of Crimea, which acceded into the Russian Federation after a referendum in Crimea on March 16, 2014 . . . The UNA-UNSO has been linked to NATO’s so-called stay-behind aka “Gladio” network . . .

The US and other western governments have consistently passed their “partners” in Ukraine off as “moderates and rejected allegations about cooperation with Ukrainian parties and organizations with Nazi ideology.

In May 2014, the US Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland, however, admitted during a two-hour hearing before the House of Representatives, that the US Administration cooperates with Ukrainian Nazis. The cooperation with Ukrainian Nazis was, however, not limited to official members of the Obama administration. Among those directly involved in cooperating with e.g. Svoboda “leader” Tyahnbok was US Senator John McCain, who is also known for making “deals” with ISIS “Caliph Ibrahim”, aka al-Badri or al-Baghdadi.

Delta, the nom de guerre of the Jewish commander of a Ukrainian street-fighting unit, is pictured in Kiev (Courtesy of ‘Delta’). Israeli military units were reportedly also involved in the coup d’état in Ukraine that lead to the rise of Nazi ideologists and the threat against Jewish citizens and communities in Ukraine.

In an article from March 14, 2014, the director of the Canada-based Centre for Research on Globalisation, Dr. Michel Chossudovsky, noted that the Jewish News Agency JTA reported about the presence of units associated to the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) in Ukraine. JTA quotes “Delta”, a member of the IDF’s Givati Infantry Brigade as confirming the presence of Israeli forces during the coup d’état.

The Givati Infantry Brigade was, among others, involved in Israel’s 2009 “Operation Cast Lead” against Palestine’s Gaza Strip as well as in massacres in Tel El-Hawa neighborhood of Gaza, reports Chossudovsky.

While the threat against members of Ukraine’s Jewish community is real, the situation poses the question whether the Netanyahu administration participated in creating the threat with the purpose to create potential new Israeli immigrants and citizens. Over the last two years, Israel experienced a marked increase of Israeli citizens who are leaving Israel for Germany, the USA, and other western countries. 6,000 new Ukrainian Jews could help the Netanyahu administration with maintaining Israel’s policy of aggressive settlement expansion in the illegally occupied Palestinian territories.

Comment: Not 4,000 or 8,000 Ukrainian Jewish Refugees, it has got to be 6,000, or six million.


The Rise of German Imperialism and the Phony ‘Russian Threat’

Vladimir Putin

December 07, 2014 — The US-EU seizure of power via vassal political clients backed by corrupt oligarchs and Nazi street fighters in Ukraine detonated the current crisis. Ukraine power grab posed a top security threat to the very existence of Russia as an independent state. After the Kiev take-over, NATO moved its stooge regime in Kiev forward to militarily eliminate the independent regions in the Southeast and seize the Crimea, thus totally eliminating Russia’s strategic position in the Black Sea. Russia the victim of the NATO power grab was labeled the ‘aggressor.’ The entire officialdom and mass media echoed the Big Lie. Two decades of US NATO military advances on Russia’s borders and German-EU economic expansion into Russian markets were obfuscated. Ukraine is the most important strategic military platform from which the US-NATO can launch an attack on the Russian heartland and the single largest market for Germany since the annexation of East Germany.

The US and Germany see the Ukraine conquest as of extreme value in itself but also as the key to launching an all-out offensive to strangle Russia’s economy via sanctions and dumping oil and to militarily threaten Russia. The strategic goal is to reduce the Russian population to poverty and to re-activate the quasi-moribund opposition to overthrow the Putin government and return Russia to permanent vassalage. The US and German imperial elite, looking beyond Russia, believe that if they control Russia, they can encircle ,isolate and attack China from the West as well as the East.

Wild-eyed fanatics they are not. But as rabid proponents of a permanent war to end Russia’s presence in Europe and to undermine China’s emergence as a world power, they are willing to go to the brink of a nuclear war.

The ideological centerpiece of US-German imperial expansion and conquest in Europe and the Caucuses is the ‘Russian Threat’. It is the touchstone defining adversaries and allies. Countries that do not uphold sanctions are targeted. The mass media repeat the lie. The ‘Russian Threat’ has become the war cry for cringing vassals—the phony justification for imposing frightful sacrifices to serve their imperial ‘padrones’ in Berlin and Washington—fearing the rebellion of the ‘sacrificed’ population. No doubt, under siege, Russia will be forced to make sacrifices. The oligarchs will flee westward; the liberals will crawl under their beds. But just as the Soviets turned the tide of war in Stalingrad, the Russian people, past the first two years of a bootstrap operation will survive, thrive and become once again a beacon of hope to all people looking to get from under the tyranny of US-NATO militarism and German-EU economic dictates . . .

ISIS, the US and Israel

By Barry Chamish

alleged beheading of John Foley

December 9, 2014 — It has been almost a year since, relying on sources I trusted, I reported that US Special Forces were running a camp in the northern Jordanian town of Iswafa, to train, fund and equip forces to supposedly bring down the Assad regime in Syria, with covert Israeli military co-ordination and obvious Jordanian co-operation. These troops made their way from Syria to Turkey and in a miracle of military tactical genius, were transformed into ISIS, which in a mere three years captured half of Syria and Iraq.

And even better, with some well-publicized decapitations, brought the US back to the Middle East to fight the beheading beasts. In short, the US, with Israeli help, created their own worst enemies. And Russia now agrees:

Putin Aide says Israel is training ISIS


December 8, 2014 — Mossad transferring ‘spying experience’ to the leadership of ISIS, as Israeli military advisers assist the terrorists, claims the aide.

A senior aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin has accused Israel’s Mossad of training Islamic State (aka ISIS) terrorists operating in Iraq and Syria, Iran’s Press TV reports.

Alexander Prokhanov told the state-controlled news outlet that Mossad is also likely to have transferred some of its ‘spying experience’ to the leadership of ISIS, even as Israeli military advisers assisted the terrorists in other ways.

Prokhanov said ISIS is a byproduct of US policies in the Middle East.

“ISIS is a tool at the hands of the United States. They tell the Europeans that if we (the Americans) do not intervene, ISIS will cause you harm,” he said. In fact, however, he added, Iran and Russia are the main targets of ISIS terror.

“They launched their first terror attack against us just a few days back in Chechnya,” he said, stressing that the ISIS ideology has got nothing to do with the Islam practiced in Iran and some other Muslim countries in the Middle East region.

Prokhanov said the United States and Israel are one and the same when it comes to supporting a terror organization like the ISIS . . . Full story: israelnationalnews.com


Clearly, it’s not good for one’s longterm survival to reveal what Putin indubitably has come to accept as truth. An Israeli intelligence source, Debka, opened the ugly lid a few months ago and suddenly were shut down to ‘update’ their website for a three weeks. The upgrading was extended and now Debka is, at best, a touch and go operation.

This appeared to contradict a fact which Israel has kept very dark:

“The Syrian rebel offensive to wrest Quneitra would have stood no chance without Israel’s aid—not just in medical care for their injured, but also in limited supplies of arms, intelligence and food. Israel acted as a member, along with the US and Jordan, of a support system for rebel groups fighting in southern Syria.”

“Their efforts are coordinated through a war-room which the Pentagon established last year near Amman. The US, Jordanian and Israeli officers manning the facility determine in consultation which rebel factions are provided with reinforcements from the special training camps run for Syrian rebels in Jordan, and which will receive arms”.

To those ‘rational’ minds who insist their Jewish leaders would never assist in the formation of the bloodthirsty foes dedicated to their final demise . . . no matter how much it pains you, recall the connivance between the Nazis and the Labor Zionist founders of Israel:

We now jump to 1933. Less than 1% of the German Jews supported Zionism. Many tried to escape from Nazism by boat to Latin and North American ports but the international diplomatic order was to turn them back. Any German Jew who rejected Palestine as his shelter would be shipped back to his death. [This was and is continuing shameless propaganda to cover atrocities of the Allies fighting the City of London’s wars to establish Lucifer’s one world government promised them by the false interpretations of Talmudic rabbis. Such lies are now deployed against Russia by the Jew-controlled USA].

By 1934, the majority of German Jews got the message and turned to the only Jewish organization allowed by the Nazis, the Labour Zionists. For confirmation of the conspiracy between them and Hitler’s thugs read The Transfer Agreement by Edwin Black, Perfidy by Ben Hecht or The Scared and The Doomed by Jacob Nurenberger. The deal cut worked like this. The German Jews would first be indoctrinated into Bolshevism in Labour Zionism camps and then, with British approval, transferred to Palestine. [Note the hand of the Jew’s ‘City of London’: Judaeo-Communism was the enemy of Hitler, God and man]. Most were there by the time the British issued the White Paper banning further Jewish immigration. The Labour Zionists got the Jews they wanted, and let the millions of religious Jews and other non-Frankists perish in Europe without any struggle for their survival. [end]

Comment: The Old Testament speaks of a jubilee every fiftieth year in which all debts are canceled, Hebrew slaves were freed and any land that was mortgaged is returned (Leviticus 25:10). It seems the letter “v,” which in Hebrew represents the number six, has not been copied so with Talmudic license the rabbis twisted this to mean, “You shall return minus six million” (Facts on File Inc., 460 Park Ave., S., New York, NY 10016, 1990, p. 214 quoted by Ben Weintraub (Robert L. Brock), in The Holocaust Dogma of Judaism: Keystone of the New World Order, Cosmo Publishing, PO Box 15248, Washington, D.C. 20003, USA. (1995), p. 3; based upon The Secrets of Hebrew Words by Rabbi Benjamin Blech, p. 5-6).

The first reference to the extermination of six million Jews appears is an article on ‘Antisemitism’ in the Encyclopaedia Britannica (10th Ed. (1902) Vol. XXV p. 482), “While there are in Russia and Rumania six millions of Jews who are being systematically degraded. . .” Next Chief Rabbi of the United States, Russian immigrant Stephen S. Wise wrote in The New York Times, of June 11, 1900, “There are 6,000,000 living, bleeding, suffering arguments in favor of Zionism.” And The New York Times, of March 25, 1906, quoted Jewish publicist Dr. Paul Nathan “the Russian Government’s studied policy for the “solution” of the Jewish question is systematic and murderous extermination.” Then Max Nordau, co-founder with Theodore Herzl of the World Zionist Organization claimed “In the World Zionist Congress of 1911, 22 years before Hitler came to power, and three years before World War I . . . the same righteous governments, who are so nobly, industrially active to establish the eternal peace, are preparing, by their own confession, complete annihilation for six million people.”  (Quoted by fellow-Zionist Ben Hecht, in his book Perfidy, p. 254).

“I think that from the very start John Paul II for whatever reasons has sought after one thing and one thing only. The formation of what now appears to be in his mind, a universal assemblage of Catholics at the core; grouped with them Protestant denominations, sects and churches; grouped around them believing Jews, believing Muslims, believing Hindus, believing Buddhists . . .” (Uri Dowbenko, Bushwhacked: Inside Stories of True Conspiracy, ISBN 0971004218, p. 213).

Japan investing in Robotic Workforce to regain Status as World’s Top Manufacturer

November 23, 2014 — Once the undisputed world leader in robotic technology, Japan’s supremacy in the field is being challenged by rival robot producing countries. Now the government is pouring money into regaining that place to ensure the robot age starts in Japan.

Pepper is the world’s first emo robot and represents a huge leap in artificial intelligence. It can read facial expressions, voice tones and body language and then respond. At Omotosando, an upmarket shopping district in Tokyo, Pepper works in a mobile phone store doing market research.

Pepper told one woman: “You’re very lovely—do people say that to you often? Now it’s your turn to compliment me! What do you think of my face?”

And then later joked with a male customer: “So you want to become Pepper? Well you’ve got shave off your chest hair and smear white paint over your body and then strip off your clothes.”

Pepper is designed to be cute. He stands about 120 centimetres tall and has big puppy dog eyes. On sale for $2,000 from next year, Pepper is sure to be big seller. As a household robot, Pepper will do the washing, the vacuuming and all the mundane chores with a smile. But Japanese industry and government have serious plans for Pepper and robots like him. They want to build 30 million Peppers to create a workforce that can make Japan the world’s number one manufacturer again. On the outskirts of Tokyo is the factory of the future, Nextage. Robots control the floor making ATMs and vending machines . . . Full story: abc.net.au


Green and Defenceless

December 10, 2014 — Australia will contribute A$200 million over four years into a UN fund to help poor nations cope with global warming [HOAX] (dailymail.co.uk). As Australia’s industrial capacity declines, Australia is becoming green and defenceless. History holds lessons.

Back in December 1941, Japan suddenly attacked the US Naval base at Pearl Harbour. Three days later, two ‘invincible’ British warships, “Repulse” and “Prince of Wales” were sunk by Japanese planes off Malaya. Soon Japanese armies were rampaging through Asia towards Australia. By February 1942, the British fortress of Singapore surrendered and Japanese bombs were falling on Darwin. By September 1942 the Japanese army had slashed their way down the Kokoda Track and could see the lights of Port Moresby. They were looking across Torres Strait to Australia. At that time, most of our trained soldiers were fighting Rommel in North Africa or in Japanese prison camps . . .

The war on carbon energy, the carbon tax, the renewable energy targets, escalating electricity costs and the voices in Parliament calling for Emissions Trading Schemes have all unnerved our big users of carbon fuels and electricity. Smelting and refining have become threatened industries in Australia, and closure of Mount Isa copper smelter and the Townsville copper refinery has been foreshadowed. Already six major metal smelting/refining operations have closed in Australia this century and more are likely. The closures have affected copper, lead, zinc, steel and aluminium—the sinews of modern industry. And the car industry, with all its skills and tools, is closing.

Our foolish green energy policies and the suicidal war on carbon fuels are killing real industry leaving us unskilled and defenceless—like a fat toothless walrus basking on a sunny beach . . . Full story: carbon-sense.com

Comment: There is no carbon and only 0.0037% carbon dioxide, the essential building block of all life, in the atmosphere. Australia is funding another HOAX of our master, the Jews’ City of London in pursuit of global hegemony.


Zechariah’s Third Vision

 

In Zechariah 1:1-6 the Lord expressed His displeasure with the Judeans, who even after a lifetime’s captivity in Babylon where they were unable to offer the prescribed sacrifices and fulfill the obligatory triennial attendance at the Temple, had not turned their hearts back to Him. He called them to repent and cautioned recalcitrants against the dire consequences witnessed in the lives of their disobedient forebears (Isaiah 55:11).

Three to four months later and two months after Haggai’s last prophecy in 519BC, the second regnal year of King Darius the Mede, the Lord God revealed an apocalypse of eight visions to His prophet Zechariah. The precise day of the month here and in Haggai 2:10-11, seems to be have been suggested by the fact that on this very day in the sixth month work had resumed on rebuilding the Temple (Haggai 1:14-15). The Lord had been displeased with the backslidden Judeans who had built and furnished their own comfortable homes while neglecting to build the House of the Lord which was absolutely essential to the nation’s relationship with Jehovah under His Covenant on Sinai. God had vouchsafed His Covenant, “Thus says the Lord of hosts; Once more, in a little while, I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land; and I will shake all nations, and the Desire of all nations [Messiah] will come: and I will fill this house with glory, says the Lord of hosts” (Haggai 2:6-7).

Through lack of revelation the Judeans did not understand that the “one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” as a consequence of which the “little while” and the “shaking of all nations” referred to the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel under King Jesus in the millennium, and “the glory of the latter house” refers to Christ, His glorious Bride, the glorified Israelite and Old Testament saints, a spiritual Temple “made without hands” (Mark 14:15; John 2:19) preceded by God’s wrath in the destruction of Israel’s foes. The prophecies of Haggai and Zechariah’s first vision encouraged the Judeans to go forward with the work and not fear the world power for the Lord God had given His assurance and has “returned to Jerusalem with mercies” (Zechariah 1:16-17). All hindrances shall be removed, the temple completed, and the whole city shall pass under the surveyor’s measuring line, and all Judah shall overflow with prosperity.

In Zechariah’s second vision the Lord God promised He would expel Israel’s foes and describes how He will send four smiths to cast down four Gentile world empires one by one. To a pastoral people the horns of the strongest in the herd naturally suggested a symbol of power and pride of conscious strength: hence Daniel and Jesus symbolized the ruling powers of the world as beasts (Daniel 7:1-8; Revelation 13:2; 17:3, 12). In the Spirit Zechariah saw beyond the four cardinal points and Israel’s immediate neighbours to four Gentile world empires God would raise, commencing with King Nebuchadnezzar, to chastise and mold godly character and obedience by faith into an election of Israelites until the Kingdom of Messiah smites the image of the King’s dream in the feet and takes universal dominion (Daniel 2:44). When a “horn” exceeded the bounds of God’s intent He sent the succeeding “horn” or Gentile world empire as a “smith [or skillful destroyer] to fray [terrify] and cast out that horn of the Gentiles, which lifted up its horn over the land of Judah to scatter it” as prophesied in the Book of Daniel.

In Romans 11:22-26 Paul cautioned Christians in Rome to “note the kindness and severity of God: severity toward the nation of Israel that has fallen from grace; but kindness toward you, provided you continue in His kindness; otherwise you will likewise be cut off. And if Israel does not persist in unbelief it will be grafted in; for God is able to graft them in again. . . I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own conceits; for although individual elect Israelites receive the “blessing of Abraham” and new birth, their nation, like Pharaoh, has been hardened against and blinded to God’s Word until the full number of elect Gentiles is baptized into Christ, then the whole nation will be born-again in one day—[all 144,000]” (Isaiah 66:8; Ezekiel 39:22; Zechariah 3:9).

Paul established his case for Israel’s salvation on the authority of Isaiah 59:20-21, and I Thessalonians 2, II Timothy 3-4, and Revelation 3:17 foretold the hardened blindness of Christendom toward “the Voice of the seventh angel” in this holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the antitype of Israel’s Pentecostal Feast in order that God may return to Israel with mercy and fulfill Daniel’s Seventieth Week. We will read Isaiah 59 in its entirety because the wretched moral and spiritual condition of Israel in the day of Christ is like our worldly-wise “wicked and adulterous generation of sign-seekers” that is blind to the vindicated Scriptural signs of the Presence of Jesus Messiah in these last days (Luke 17:28-30).

Isaiah 59:1-21, “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or his ear too dull to hear; your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear. Your hands are defiled with blood and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered wickedness. No one enters suit justly, nor goes to law honestly; they trust on empty pleas and speak lies, they conceive mischief and bring forth iniquity. They hatch the eggs of asps, and weave the spider’s web; he who eats their eggs dies, and a viper is hatched from one which is crushed. Their webs will not serve as clothing; men will not cover themselves with what they make. Their works are works of iniquity; deeds of violence are in their hands. Their feet run to do evil, and they hasten to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; desolation and destruction are in their highways. They know not the way of peace, and there is no justice in their paths; they have twisted their ways before them, no one who walks in that way knows peace.”

Israel had been conquered by Assyria and her citizens transported to various colonies throughout the Empire. In Isaiah 59 the Lord charges the Judahites with moral corruption as they gravitate to the worship of Babylon’s pagan trinity of gods—the very apostasy that brought God’s wrath upon Israel. Judah, too, would be conquered and her people exiled to Babylon where they would further “twist their ways before them” by devising the Talmud, the antithesis of the Torah that generated such disobedience her people committed deicide (Matthew 15:1-9; Acts 2:23). The condition of the Israelites was at that time wretched, miserable, poor, spiritually blind and naked like the nominal Christian world today which is “crucifying to themselves the Son of God afresh”.

“Therefore justice is far from us, and righteousness does not overtake us; we wait for Light, and behold darkness; and for brightness, but we walk in gloom. We grope like a blind man along a wall, we feel our way like those who have no eyes; we stumble at noon as in the twilight, among those in the prime of life we are like dead men. We all growl like bears, and sadly moan like doves; we look for justice, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far from us. For our transgressions are multiplied before You, and our sins witness against us; for our transgressions are ever with us, and we are conscious of our iniquities: rebelling against and denying the Lord, and turning away from following after our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth has fallen in the public squares, and uprightness cannot enter. Truth is so lacking that he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.”

“The Lord saw it, and it displeased him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man to help and wondered that there was no one to intervene; then His own arm brought Him victory, and His righteousness upheld Him. He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation upon His head; He put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and wrapped Himself in fury as a mantle. According to their deeds, so will He repay, wrath to His adversaries, requital to His enemies; to the coastlands He will render requital. So they shall fear the Name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; for He will come like a rushing stream, which the wind of the Lord drives”.

Romans 11:26-27, “And so all Israel will be saved; as it is written in Isaiah 59:20-21: “And He will come to Zion as Redeemer, to the elect in Jacob who turn from transgression, says the Lord. And this will be My Covenant with them, says the Lord: My Spirit which is upon you, and My Words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth, or out of the mouth of your children, or out of the mouth of your children’s children, says the Lord, from the time of their new birth and for evermore”.

Meanwhile, “As regards the Good News of Jesus Messiah the Israelites are enemies of God for your sakes: but in so far as the election is concerned, they are beloved of God because of His promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, because God’s gifts of grace and His calling [of the elect blood Israelites (not Jews)] are irrevocable. [You must appreciate that if the Abrahamic Covenant is abrogated the New Testament is of no force, for Abraham’s Seed is Jesus Christ, and Gentiles are Abraham’s seed by the baptism of the Holy Ghost]. For whereas you Gentiles have in times past refused belief and obedience toward God’s Word promulgated to you by the creation (Romans 1:21) but have now obtained mercy through their disobedience: even so Israel has now also not believed that through your mercy [which provokes them to jealousy of your faith (verse 11)] they also may obtain mercy. For God shut up ALL men together in unbelief and disobedience to the divine will that HE might have mercy upon all men” (Romans 11:28-32).

diagram of a human unit“There is no difference: for the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ is for all who believe, since all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” (Acts 15:9; Romans 3:22-23; 10:12-13). And all men are shut up in consequence of the Fall. The Gentiles were first bound in the process of unbelief as Paul explains in Romans 1 but when they were ripe for mercy the hearts of the Israelites were hardened. Israel followed them by means of this organic connection (Romans 2), so that when their confinement under the curse of the Law of sin and death (Romans 8:2; 7:13; Galatians 3:13, 22) was abolished, they proved by their unbelief and self-righteous conceit that “all Israel is not Israel” for the mass were children of the bondwoman; few were children of the free and able to enter liberty in Christ. Again, when the last elect Gentile is baptized into Christ Israel shall be ripe for mercy. Only by the terrible power of worldliness bringing reprobates under bondage to their ten carnal senses can sin be consummated in unbelief under God’s judgment in order that sinners might seek Divine mercy while grace is still available (Romans 5:20; 7:13).

Now let us turn to Zechariah 2 where the Lord reveals the third of eight continuous visions. As his second vision foretold the destruction of Israel’s foes, the third unveils the prophecy of the Kingdom with the surety of great enlargement and absolute security under the New Covenant.

The Third Vision

In Zechariah 2:1-5 we see a Man with a measuring line surveying the present dimensions of Jerusalem with a view to its indefinite enlargement to accommodate the redeemed in its ultimate future beyond the promise of Zechariah 1:15-17. This Man is Christ (Ezekiel 1:26; 40:3-4; 43:6-7; 47:3; Zechariah 1:8; 10; Revelation 1:13-15). As He departs to “stretch His line,” Zechariah sees Brother Branham, the interpreting angel, approaching from the direction in which the Surveyor has disappeared. However before he reaches Zechariah he is met by a third angel, the Angel of the Lord (verses 5, 8-9) coming from the opposite direction and who instructs him as in Revelation 1:1, “Run [with the Good News]; say to that young man [Zechariah], Jerusalem shall be inhabited as unwalled villages for the multitude of men and cattle therein: for I will be to her a wall of Fire round about, and for glory within her”.

This third angel is the Angel of the Lord as confirmed by Isaiah 49:1-12, which speaks of Jesus Messiah as the ideal Overcomer and Prince of God, or “Israel,” and who, having been rejected by the Israelites calls us Gentiles, “Listen, to Me you far-off lands. The Lord called Me from the womb; from the body of My mother He named Me (Matthew 1:21). He made My Words like a sharp sword (Hebrews 4:12); in the shadow of His hand He hid Me and made Me a sharp arrow in His quiver. He told Me, You are My servant, Israel, in whom I will be glorified. Then I replied, But I have laboured in vain, I have spent My strength for naught, and in vain: nevertheless surely My judgment is with the Lord, and My recompense rests with God.”

“And now, said the Lord—who formed Me from the womb to serve Him and commissioned Me to restore to Him His people Israel, who strengthened Me to perform the task and glorified Me in doing it—It is too light a thing that You should be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will make You a Light to the Gentiles, that My salvation may extend to the end of the earth.”

“Thus says the Lord, the Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, to He whom man despises, whom the nation of Israel abhors, to a Servant of rulers (Matthew 17:27; 26:52-53), [Gentile] Kings shall see [Him as God’s Light] and stand to attention, princes shall [see and] worship, because of the Lord who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen You [Jesus as His elect” which in turn makes those Gentiles and us His elect (Isaiah 42:1)].

“THUS SAITH THE LORD, I have I heard You in an acceptable time, in a day of salvation I have helped You [as a Man to accomplish man’s salvation by performing the duty of Kinsman Redeemer for Adam and his seed]: I will preserve Your Life [from Satanic assault in order that You may make a voluntarily surrender for your Wife as Adam forfeited his life for Eve (Matthew 26:42)] and make You a covenantal pledge to Israel (Isaiah 42:6; Matthew 23:39) to restore the land of the Covenant and [like Joshua, whose name you share], divide the land among its true heirs (Isaiah 54:3; 61:4)]; saying to the [Israelite] prisoners, Come forth (Isaiah 42:7; Zechariah 9:12); to those in darkness, [Gentiles having no Light as to the one true God]: Show yourselves! They shall feed alongside the roads and on all bare hills; there shall be pasture in the ways, and their pastures [shall be] on all bare heights.”

This “acceptable time” is the Pentecostal Jubilee or release from which apostate Israel disqualified herself at Passover. This was “acceptable time” for us Gentiles; we were ripe to receive God’s mercy as Paul explained in Romans 11:28-32 (Isaiah 61:2; II Corinthians 6:2).

“They shall not hunger or thirst; neither scorching wind nor sun shall smite them: for He who has mercy will lead them and guide them by cool waters. And I will make all My mountains [submit to Me as My creations and lower themselves to] become a way, while [the valleys] shall be exalted. These shall come from afar: look, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of Sinim“.

Rabbi Yosef OvadiaIn their lust for mammon and dominion over Satan’s Eden, Talmudic Jews have concocted an ungodly interpretation of Isaiah 60, presuming it refers to old Jerusalem when it speaks of New Jerusalem over which Jesus Messiah and the Church will reign as King and Queen. Thus Israeli Sephardic leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef said non-Jews exist to serve Jews. “Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world; only to serve the People of Israel,” he said during a public discussion of what kind of work non-Jews are allowed to perform on Shabbat. “Why are Gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat,” he said to some laughter. Yosef, the spiritual leader of the Shas Party and the former chief Sephardi rabbi of Israel, also said that the lives of non-Jews are protected in order to prevent financial loss to Jews.

Israel's wall of shame, 2007Because of the “wall of shame” the Zionists have erected, Isaiah’s prophecy is clearly not speaking of present-day Jerusalem or Judah. So it is the vastly extended 1,500-mile square by 1,500-mile high New Jerusalem that will be “inhabited as unwalled villages” (Zechariah 2:4-5) whose defense will be the encompassing Shekinah signifying the Presence of Jesus Messiah, the glory of God within. Isaiah 60:18-20, “Violence shall no more be heard in your land, devastation or destruction within your borders; but you shall call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise. The Sun will no longer be your light by day neither will the Moon give light for brightness at night, for the Lord your God will be your everlasting Light, and He will be your glory. Your Sun will never set, and your Moon shall never wane; for the Lord will be your everlasting Light and your days of mourning will be ended” (Isaiah 4:5; 26:1; Zechariah 2:10; Revelation 21:23-27).

Neither does Zechariah 2:5 refer to Jerusalem following Judah’s return from exile because Ezekiel saw the Shekinah depart the Temple in 594BC before the destruction of Jerusalem (Ezekiel 10:18-22), and neither the Ark of the Covenant nor the Shekinah ever returned to the Temple. When the Shekinah returns in Ezekiel 43:1-7 His parousia will not be recognized immediately as indicated by the instructions in the following chapters, for Jesus said “You will not see [know, perceive or understand] Me henceforth, until you say, Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord.” By revelation that compound redemptive Name is obviously LORD JESUS CHRIST, for Jesus of the New Testament is Jehovah of the Old (Luke 24:47; Acts 2:38-39; 4:12). After the midst of Daniel’s Seventieth Week, the revelation of His Presence will “anoint the Most Holy,” fulfilling the six-fold purpose of Gabriel’s visit to Daniel by the new birth of 144,000 elect Israelites—the antitype or millennium temple—made not with hands but living stones; witnesses built and inhabited by the spoken Word of God (Daniel 9:24; Revelation 14:1-5). “The Most Holy place” was where the Ark of the Covenant stood in the Temple. The true antitype of the Ark, the glorified Man from Galilee, will not set foot on earth till the millennium when the Kingdom of Israel is restored and He is the object of worship living and reigning over the hearts of the 144,000.

Ezekiel 43:1-7, “Afterward he brought me to the gate facing east: and the Shekinah Cloud of the glorious Presence of the God of Israel came from the Mount of Olives east of Jerusalem (Zechariah 14:4): and the sound of His Coming was like the sound of many waters [the saints in unison with Christ as witnesses of judgment (Numbers 24:7; Jude 14:15; Revelation 1:15; 17:15; 19:6)]: and the earth was lightened with His glory (Ezekiel 1:28; 10:4; Revelation 18:1). And the vision was like the appearance I had seen when He came to destroy the city, like the vision I saw by the River Chebar; and I fell upon my face as the glory of the Lord entered the Temple by the gate facing east. Then the Spirit caught me up, and brought me into the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the Temple.”

“I heard Him speaking to me out of the Temple, while the Man stood beside me. He said, Son of man, the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel forever . . .”

This is the anointing of the Most Holy Place where the Lord “will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel forever”—the “Temple” that is to be re-instructed. This is when the King takes His throne in the heart of the 144,000 for the millennium reign, completing the number of names in the Lamb’s Book of Life permitted entry to New Jerusalem (Jeremiah 3:12-18; Daniel 9:24; Revelation 21:27 – 22:1-5). This follows the pattern of Exodus 40:34-38, I Kings 8:10-11, Matthew 3:13-17, and Acts 2:1-4 when the Lord took His abode in the Tabernacle in the Wilderness, in King Solomon’s Temple, in the Temple of Jesus Messiah, and in His Body, the Church. Here He is taking His abode in 144,000 Israelites born in one day—His Millennium Temple (Isaiah 9:14; 66:8; Zechariah 3:9-10).

The Angel who measured the ruined city of old Jerusalem in Zechariah 2:1-2 is Jesus Christ, however I believe the angel who measures New Jerusalem is William Branham (Revelation 17:1; 21:9, 15-17), “the angel that talked with me” (Zechariah 1:9; 13, 19; 2:3; 4:1, 4-5; 5:5, 10; 6:4). Brother Branham was the “angel” of Revelation 1:1, the man to whom Jesus Christ revealed the Seven Seals and whose ministry “finished the mystery of God” (Revelation 10:7). Certain misguided followers of his Message thought he actually was Jesus Christ and sought to worship him but were reprimanded and brought to correction as prophesied in Revelation 21:15 – 22:11 (Bruised Serpent, p. 719:17-50). John, who represented Christ’s end-time Bride throughout the Book of Revelation saw and heard Brother Branham in his visions from AD95-96 and he too referred to him as “the angel” and “he that talked with me” (Revelation 21:15).

In Revelation 11:1-2 Christ’s end-time Bride is instructed to measure or judge and separate the sanctified blood Israelites by the Absolute of the open Book we take from Christ’s hand, here represented as a reed or measuring rod whereby the 144,000 elect Israelites are separated and re-instructed. I believe Ezekiel represents the 144,000 elect Israelites as in Revelation John represented Christ’s end-time Bride, “the Voice of many waters” who lightens the earth with His reflected glory (Ezekiel 43:1; I Corinthians 11:7) as in Revelation 18:1. Like John in Revelation 1:1 and 10:8-11, Christ and His Bride who are one by their invisible marriage union instruct Ezekiel, “Son of man, describe the house to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them measure the pattern [and compare it with their own lives] (Ezekiel 36:31-32; Zechariah 12:10 – 13:9). And if they are ashamed of all that they have done, show them the construction of the house [or the revelation of the Message of their two witnesses that they may recognize My second or ‘parousia’ Coming], and its arrangement, its exits and its entrances, and its whole form; and make known to them all its ordinances and all its laws; and write it down in their sight, that they observe the whole constitution and its regulations and do them; [that is, repent]” (Ezekiel 43:10-11).

Zechariah 2:6-7, “Attention! Flee from Babylon, the land of the north, says the Lord: for I have spread you abroad and I will gather you from the four winds of the heaven (Septuagint), says the Lord, even to Zion. Deliver yourselves, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon” (Revelation 14:9-11).

Jeremiah 32:6-15 foresaw the reoccupation of Jerusalem, and to the Judeans who returned to the Land of the Covenant this urgent call of the Angel of the Lord to flee would appear to be directed toward the mass that remained in Babylon, but our interest is not in the historical development but to its eschatological significance stated clearly in Zechariah 2:5-13 and its now imminent reality. As we discovered in Zechariah’s first two visions, it was the Angel of the Lord who scattered the Judahites to the four cardinal points, and it is He who will soon gather them—principally from the Muslim lands of the ancient Assyrian empire—to Zion, which is inseparably connected with the Temple, “for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem will be [deliverance] the only place of safety, as the Lord has said, among the remnant whom the Lord shall call” (Joel 2:32).

This urgent call of the Angel of the Lord will be Revelation 7:1-8 gathering them from the Babylonian religion of Talmudic Judaism by the Message of restoration and revelation of the two Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11—as He called His end-time Bride out from “MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT” (Revelation 18:4).

sign of Christ's parousia ComingNow the only way prior to the regeneration of the 144,000, or the millennium, and the new heavens and new earth in which the Lord could be regarded as “a wall of fire roundabout and for glory in the midst of Jerusalem” is by Christ’s ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel. He will return to the Mount of Olives whence He departed as the Shekinah or Pillar of Cloud and Fire prophesied in Zechariah 14:3-5: “His feet shall stand upon the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east.” This accords with Ezekiel’s vision of the Shekinah glory of the Presence of the Lord returning by way of the east (Ezekiel 43:1-7). As this image of the Pillar of Cloud that manifest over Tucson, Arizona USA on February 28, 1963 was “the sign of Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming to us Gentiles” (Daniel 7:9; Matthew 24:3; 26:64; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7, 14; 18:1). The Lord will display a similar manifestation of the Pillar of Cloud above the Mount of Olives at the end of the Gentile dispensation to signify Messiah’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel (Zechariah 14:4; Ezekiel 43:2; Matthew 24:30-31; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7).

Zechariah 2:8-11, “For Thus saith the Lord Almighty, after restoring the glory [of His Presence to Jerusalem], He has commissioned Me to visit His wrath upon the nations which spoiled you: for He who touches you touches the apple of His eye. For with the mere shake of My hand they shall be a spoil to those that serve them: and [by the execution of this judgment] you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me [the Angel of the Lord]” (II Thessalonians 1:7-10; Revelation 19). Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for I am coming, and I will dwell among you, says the Lord. Many nations shall join themselves to the Lord in that day, and shall be My people: and I will dwell in the midst of you, and you shall know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me to you”.

Here is a further example of the true Oneness of the Godhead. Jehovah of the Old Testament is Jehovah-Saviour—Jesus Christ of the New—this is one and the same Person (Isaiah 7:14; 9:6; 43:3; 44:5-6; 45:21) for there is no trinity (Isaiah 44:24), God being at once the Sender and the Sent. Isaiah 48:16, “Draw near to Me and hear this: from the first I have not spoken in secret; at the time it comes to pass I will be there. For the Lord God, has sent Me and His Spirit.” Both offices manifest His glory.

Zechariah 2:12, “And the Lord will inherit Judah as his portion in the holy land [as Son of David] (Deuteronomy 32:9), and will take pleasure in Jerusalem again.” The elect Israelites will forever be His servant nation, and servants to their King and His Queen. Romans 11:7 and 28-29 explain that although the course of God’s grace to the Israel nation is interrupted for a time, the Covenant remained intact so when the 144,000 recognize the sign of Christ’s parousia Coming to them the nation will be born-again in one day, and the world will move toward the great battle of Armageddon.

Within these verses one could define Messiah’s first Coming followed by the Gentile dispensation—the fulfillment of Genesis 9:27: “God will enlarge Japheth and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem,” and Messiah’s recognition by the 144,000 elect Israelites. But ultimately they speak of the restoration of the kingdom to Israel, which is enlarged by the union of myriads of Christians from every Adamic family (Isaiah 2:1-4; 65:18-19; Micah 4:1-5), for the boundaries of the Old Covenant will be enlarged until they are coextensive with the limits of the habitable earth (Zechariah 6:15; 8:20-23; 9:10; 14:9-16).

Zechariah 2:13, “Hush, all [weak and ignorant] flesh, before the [omnipotent and omniscient] Lord: for He has roused Himself from His holy habitation.” All flesh is summoned to wait in reverential silence for the day of the Lord, for He has risen from His heavenly habitation to destroy His foe in the consummation prior to the millennium: let His enemies beware. As Christ’s end-time Bride is already in the rapture, we turn our eyes to I Thessalonians 4:14-16, and exclaim with Brother Branham, “Jesus comes from heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His saints, and the Bible said that the heavens was empty for the space of a half hour” (The Sardisean Church Age, p. 348:96). And He has, and they are!

“Behold, God’s dwelling place is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be with them, and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there will be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things have passed away”. nl866.htm

Zechariah’s First and Second Visions

December 4, 2014

Zechariah’s First and Second VisionsPhone

 Bible Believers’ Newsletter 865

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

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased that we can meet for fellowship in the present Truth” of God’s unchanging Word.

Ecclesiastes 7:26-29, “I found more bitter than death the woman, who is snares and nets at heart, and whose hands are like chains: he who pleases God will escape her; but the sinner will be ensnared by her. Behold, this is what have I found, says the preacher, step by step I searched for the conclusion. What my heart sought continually, I did not find: one man among a thousand I have found; but a woman among all these I have not found. Only this have I found, that God made man straightforward; but they have sought out many means to follow their own downward path.” As the Prophet said, “the woman is made so she can deceive and be deceived.” He also said, “A good woman is a jewel in a man’s crown. She should be honored. One of the best things that God could give a man was a wife. Besides salvation, a wife is the best thing if she is a good wife”.

Our main article this week begins a timely and fresh look at our series on the Book of Zechariah. The Lord willing, this will be followed by studies of other prophets of the Old Testament who foretold events scheduled to be fulfilled in the next thirty-one months. Our objective is to co-ordinate complementary prophecies of Scripture with the Message of the hour and real time. Our study will commence with the first and second of Zechariah’s apocalypse of eight—we have nine—successive uninterrupted visions and then proceed through the remainder of his Book.

This week’s news items are as usual illustrative of what William Branham and John the revelator called “things that are to be,” or “Things which must be hereafter [the seven Church Ages of PART-Word and Christ’s mediation]” (Revelation 1:19; 4:1). Such prophesies are guide stones the Lord has provided to enable us to recognize our day and its Message and establish our position in the present Truth” and then rest without fear or favour.

This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.

Your brother-in-Christ

Grandmaster Putin’s Golden Trap

US Dollar tennis

November 23, 2014 — Putin is not shouting about it all over the world. And of course, he still accepts US dollars as an intermediate means of payment. But he immediately exchanges all these dollars obtained from the sale of oil and gas for physical gold! . . .

Not so long ago, British scientists came to the same conclusion reached by the US Geological Survey a few years ago. Namely: Europe will not be able to survive without energy supplied from Russia. Translated from English to any other language it means: “The world will not be able to survive if oil and gas from Russia is subtracted from the global balance of energy supply.”

Thus, the Western world, built on the hegemony of the petrodollar, is in a catastrophic situation . . . it cannot survive without oil and gas supplies from Russia. And Russia is now ready to sell its oil and gas to the West only in exchange for physical gold! . . . Since Russia has a constant flow of dollars from the sale of oil and gas, it will be able to convert these dollars to buy gold at current gold prices, depressed by all means by the West. This equates gold price, which had been artificially and meticulously lowered by the Fed and ESF many times . . . via artificially inflated purchasing power of the dollar through market manipulation . . .

Right now the West spends much of its efforts and resources to suppress the prices of gold and oil. Thereby, on the one hand to distort the existing economic reality in favor of the US dollar . . . and on the other hand, to destroy the Russian economy, refusing to play the role of obedient vassal of the West.

Today assets such as gold and oil look proportionally weakened and excessively undervalued against the US dollar. It is a consequence of the enormous economic effort on the part of the West. And now Putin sells Russian energy resources in exchange for these US dollars, artificially propped by the efforts of the West. With these dollar proceeds Putin immediately buys gold, artificially devalued against the US dollar by the efforts of the West itself! . . .

China recently announced that it will cease to increase its gold and currency reserves denominated in US dollars . . . Using the mechanism of active withdrawal from the market of one artificially lowered by the West financial asset (gold) in exchange for another artificially inflated by the West financial asset (USD), Putin has thereby started the countdown to the end of the world hegemony of petrodollar . . .

The West can spend as much of its efforts and resources to artificially increase the purchasing power of the dollar, lower oil prices and artificially lower the purchasing power of gold. The problem of the West is that the stocks of physical gold in possession of the West are not unlimited. Therefore, the more the West devalues oil and gold against the US dollar, the faster it loses devaluing Gold from its not infinite reserves . . .

Purchasing power of US$ from introduction of Rothschild's Federal Reserve in 1913 to 2013The main principle of the world petrodollar model is allowing Western countries led by the United States to live at the expense of the labor and resources of other countries . . . based on the role of the US currency, dominant in the global monetary system (GMS) . . .

Led by Russia and China, what the BRICS are doing now is actually changing the role and status of the US dollar in the global monetary system. From the ultimate means of payment and asset accumulation the national currency of the USA is turned into only an intermediate means of payment, by the joint actions of Moscow and Beijing. This interim payment is intended only to exchange for another—and the ultimate financial asset—gold. Thus, the US dollar actually loses its role as the ultimate means of payment and asset accumulation, yielding both of those roles to another recognized, denationalized and depoliticized monetary asset—GOLD!

Traditionally, the West has used two methods to eliminate the threat to the hegemony of petrodollar model in the world and the consequent excessive privileges for the West:

One of these methods—color revolutions. The second method, usually applied by the West, if the first fails—military aggression and bombing. But in Russia’s case both of these methods are either impossible or unacceptable for the West … Full story: gold-eagle.com

Comment: An interesting response to criticism of this article was published in the newspaper The View.”

I believe the sinking of Los Angeles, the demolition of es Sakhra, the dome of the Rock and the Muslim invasion of Israel at the close of the Gentile dispensation will ignite the ‘hot stage’ of the present World War III. The US dollar, monetary systems and global economy will collapse. Utterly defeated, I believe Israel will cease to be a military power and the mass exodus of non-Semitic, anti-Semitic Israeli self-styled Jews will enable Israelites to return to the Land of their Covenant for redemption in the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week. The Prophet said the United States will be defeated, invaded and briefly occupied by Russia.

The Prophet said, “When the tribulation comes, the Spirit (Holy Spirit) goes back to its Maker, and you go with It. No matter how religious you are, it won’t go unless there’s Something in there to take you . . . For our nation is not secure. We’ve thought we were. So did the Babylonian Kingdom think so, but all the time there was a wicked nation working. And there’s been a wicked nation working, until now we know that they’re ahead of us, and we’re at their mercy” (William Branham, The Handwriting on the Wall, #14:7, p. 12:97, 107).

“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 [such as COMEX and Exchange-traded funds (ETF’s)], and demanding gold. With no gold, the system falls. The Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance [Daniel 9:27), and the harlot church will take over the whole world”  (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 314:1).

“The Catholic Church is the only religious institution that can enter into diplomatic relations and that interests itself in international rights, acting through the Holy See, an international sovereign subject of singular characteristics” (Monsignor Pietro Parolin, Undersecretary for Relations with States, 2007). ‘n amazing quote in which the undersecretary unwittingly confirms the Roman Catholic Church as being the whore of Babylon! It is the only religious institution that can have diplomatic relations with the ‘kings of the world’. Amazing! Also, the inhabitants of the earth have certainly been made drunk with the false teachings (wine) of the Catholic Church. Not only are there over a billion Catholics deceived by her teachings but the (once) Protestant churches hold to Catholic false doctrines, the trinity of gods, false baptism in three titles, sprinkling and pouring instead of immersion, organized religion under committees of men, false Apostles’ Creed (so-called), christening, confirmation, godparents, Christmas and Easter, etc.

The papacy is so influential and powerful that nearly every major country consults her before making major policy moves. “Her large diplomatic corps maintains relations with more than 100 nations” (US News and World Report, October 30, 1978, p. 24). And in 2011, she had diplomatic relations with 178 countries; only about 20 remain for her to have full union with the whole world.


New G20 Financial Rules: Cyprus-style Bail-ins to confiscate Bank Deposits and Pension Funds

December 2, 2014 — On the weekend of November 16th, the G20 leaders whisked into Brisbane, posed for their photo ops, approved some proposals, made a show of roundly disapproving of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and whisked out again. It was all so fast they may not have known what they were endorsing when they rubber-stamped the Financial Stability Board’s ‘Adequacy of Loss-Absorbing Capacity of Global Systemically Important Banks in Resolution,’ which completely changes the rules of banking.

Russell Napier, writing in ZeroHedge, called it ‘the day money died.’ In any case, it may have been the day deposits died as money. Unlike coins and paper bills, which cannot be written down or given a ‘haircut,’ says Napier, deposits are now ‘just part of commercial banks’ capital structure.’ That means they can be ‘bailed in’ or confiscated to save megabanks from derivative bets gone wrong.

Rather than reining in the massive and risky derivatives casino, the new rules prioritize the payment of banks’ derivatives obligations to each other, ahead of everyone else. That includes not only depositors, public and private, but the pension funds that are the target market for the latest bail-in play, called ‘bail-inable’ bonds.

‘Bail in’ has been sold as avoiding future government bailouts and eliminating too big to fail (TBTF). But it actually institutionalizes TBTF, since the big banks are kept in business by expropriating the funds of their creditors.

It is a neat solution for bankers and politicians, who don’t want to have to deal with another messy banking crisis and are happy to see it disposed of by statute. But a bail-in could have worse consequences than a bailout for the public. If your taxes go up, you will probably still be able to pay the bills. If your bank account or pension gets wiped out, you could wind up in the street or sharing food with your pets . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Comment: Whereas governments should hold a moritorium on home mortgage interest to ensure national security, stability and prosperity, the savings and compulsory superannuation/pension funds of John and Jane citizen, along with their savings deposits have been sequestrated by statute to meet the gambling losses of Jewry’s international banksters.


Anatomy of a Riot

December 1, 2014 — A giant black young punk who attacked a cop was shot to death, and practically all over the world, distraught individuals demanding justice from cockeyed courts and safety from killer police lamented his passing by committing a variety of criminal acts, with the tacit encouragement of both government and government-controlled media . . . The YouTube video that shows the victim stealing cigarillos and bullying the owner of the store who wanted him to pay for them is all you need to know about Michael Brown, a hoodlum who attacked a cop and paid for it with his life. Certainly, he was no blameless victim unjustifiably murdered by a crazed cop motivated by racist hatred . . .

There are really two issues at work here, colliding at cross purposes. The first is the practice of blacks feeling righteous about their persecution and lashing out without any thought about the consequences of their actions. But the second and more serious issue is about the epidemic of police violence throughout the United States and the world.

This change in the basic attitude of police toward the public seems to come on the heels of the training of US cops in Israel, which has resulted in the ramping up of hair-trigger violence against the public, the epidemic of police shootings of innocent people and pets, and the failure to prosecute law enforcement officials and politicians who have crossed the line and committed rapes and murders, but then are not fairly punished for their crimes . . .

The mixing of two things makes it impossible to distinguish one from the other: wanton police violence vs. berserk black crime. Why the eager orgy of violence, why the trigger happy response by cops? Two different things that must solved separately . . . more than a century of Jewish-controlled media have convinced you to trust your enemies and distrust your friends (which is the essence of the teaching of the Frankfurt School of sociology that has destroyed and is destroying family structures throughout the world). Your enemy, I’m sorry to tell you, is your government, and by trusting it, you have forfeited your well being and your life . . .

Although it has never happened, law enforcement needs to focus on the out of control white collar crime engineered from the very top of the political food chain that deprives people of their livelihood. The recent failure of the corrupt government in Washington to investigate all the stolen money and corrupt practices of bankers has done far more harm and killed far more people than these FBI-fantasy terrorists could ever hope to kill . . . Full story: therebel.org

Comment: From the link to “The Frankfurt School” you will recognize the script followed by your government and mine to groom nations and individuals throughout the world for a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity . . .”

The New York Times reported that during the Obama administration “police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night-vision equipment; and hundreds of silencers, armored cars and aircraft.” The parallels of the US and Nazi Germany policing methods are too similar to ignore. A retired Philadelphia police captain, Ray Lewis who joined Ferguson Protesters told Al Jazeera:

For one, I want to give the residents of Ferguson the knowledge there are some police that do support them. The second thing, I want to try to get a message to mainstream America that the system is corrupt, that police really are oppressing not only the black community, but also the whites. They’re an oppressive organization now controlled by the one percent of corporate America. Corporate America is using police forces as their mercenaries (globalresearch.ca).

Brother Branham prophesied a race war in the United States as a legacy of Communist adulterer and plagiarist minister, Michael (alias Martin Luther) King. “I don’t think the Holy Spirit’s agreeing with him at all on that. It’s got the people all worked up in a bunch of ballyhoo . . . Them precious people will die down there like flies. Starts a revolutionary, both white and colored will fight again and die like flies. And what you got when it’s all over? A bunch of dead people” (The Third Exodus, p. 24:1-2; And Knoweth It Not, p. 37:2).


Resurrecting Israel did 9/11. All the Proof in the World

Isser Harel—Spymaster of the Israeli Intelligence Services. Director of Mossad and Shin Bet from 1952-1963.

In 1979, twenty-one years before September 11, 2001, Isser Harel predicted with uncanny accuracy the events of 9/11 to Michael D. Evans, an American supporter of Zionist extremists of the Jabotinsky sort.

On September 23, 1979, Evans visited Harel at his home in Israel and had dinner with him and Dr. Reuven Hecht, a senior adviser to then Prime Minister Menachem Begin.

In an editorial entitled “America the Target”, published in the Jerusalem Post of September 30, 2001 Evans—a Khazar Jew masquerading as a Christian—asked Harel about Arab terrorism and if it would come to America. Harel told Evans that Arab terrorists would likely strike the “tallest building in New York City” because it was a “phallic symbol.” The fact that 9/11 was planned by the Mossad through the admittance of Isser Harel is well documented and appears in a book written by Michael Evans. (Belief Net, 7th Paragraph). Full story: whale.to

Comment: Brother Branham said, “Our nation is not secure. We’ve thought we were. So did the Babylonian Kingdom think so, but all the time there was a wicked nation working. And there’s been a wicked nation working, until now we know that they’re ahead of us, and we’re at their mercy” (The Handwriting on the Wall, #14:7, p. 14:107).


John F Kennedy praises Adolf Hitler

Adolf Hitler

November 27, 2014 — Were truthful history taught in our schools and institutes of higher learning we would know that Hitler sought peace, not war, and freedom from the banking cartel of the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic international Jews (so-called) of the City of London whose corrupt Babylonian fractional reserve system of usury controls the world as necessitates and profits from all wars; the so-called “Jews’ harvest.”

Hitler was forced into World War III by ‘the City’ as Russia is now being forced into the ‘hot stage’ of World War III by the United States which is a colony of ‘the Empire of the City of London.’ Churchill, Roosevelt, Stalin and Eisenhower were all Jews, traitors to their nations, and to the human race. There was no holocaust of six million Jews in each of World Wars I and II, and the extermination of six million Jews claimed in the Jewish-ruled USSR was in face the slaughter of 66 million nominal Christians.

A Kiss of Peace: Pope Francis receives Symbolic Gesture from Patriarch

November 29, 2014 — In a fraternal gesture Pope Francis asked for the blessing of Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople, who marked a historic moment in ecumenical dialogue by kissing the head of the Bishop of Rome . . .

After celebrating Mass in Istanbul’s Cathedral of the Holy Spirit, the pontiff went on to pray Vespers with Patriarch Bartholomew in honor of the November 30 feast of St. Andrew the Apostle, who is the patron and founder of the Orthodox Church. Special texts were written explicitly for the Pope’s visit.

Once the Pope finished giving his address, he asked the patriarch for a favor: “to bless me and the Church of Rome.” He then bowed to receive the blessing and was embraced by the Patriarch, who traced the sign of the cross on the pontiff’s head and kissed it.

“With this evening we are now in the ecumenical moment of brothers who pray together,” Fr. Lombardi said, noting how the Vatican is looking forward to the common declaration that will be signed by both Pope Francis and Patriarch Bartholomew tomorrow morning . . . Full story: catholicnewsagency.com

Comment: All of the churches organized by man are uniting under the church of Rome against Christ the Word and His Bride, the one true Church restored to the apostolic faith through the Prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 17:11.


MH17: What is the Joint Investigation Team . . . Why is Malaysia Excluded?

December 3, 2014 — In the framework of the 4-country agreement signed on 8 August between Ukraine, the Netherlands, Belgium and Australia, information on the progress and results of the investigation of the disaster will remain classified . . . At the moment, Malaysia is not in the joint investigation team. We are merely, a participant . . .

a major piece of legislation introduced into the US Congress H.Rep. 758 refers to the downing of MH17 allegedly by Russia and pro-Russian separatists as a potential casus belli, which could be used to justify military action against the Russian Federation. Whereas Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, a civilian airliner, was destroyed by a Russian-made missile provided by the Russian Federation to separatist forces in eastern Ukraine, resulting in the loss of 298 innocent lives; (See full text of H.Rep. 758, 113th Congress, November 14, 2014) . . .

Independent analysts as well as OSCE monitor Michael Bociurkiw have rather mentioned no signs of a missile could be found on the wreckage, only machine gun-like holes, evidence which corroborates the Spanish air traffic controller’s testimony who claimed Ukrainian fighter jets had shot MH17 down. Eyewitnesses on the ground have also told the BBC Russian service that they saw Ukrainian fighter jets next to MH17 before it crashed. The report was censored by the BBC. (You can view it and read the transcript in this article: Deleted BBC Report. “Ukrainian Fighter Jet Shot Down MHI7”, Donetsk Eyewitnesses).

It poses a serious problem that Ukraine is part of an investigation into an incident for which it is a suspect, when the main victim, Malaysia, is excluded. The investigation should either include all the suspects as well as the victims or none of them. But most importantly, Ukraine should not lead an investigation into a crime for which it is a suspect . . .

We need to talk about Sandy Hook HOAX, False Flag Black Op

December 1, 2014 — Independent Media Solidarity is a loose knit group of independent journalists that have come together to tackle the issue of Sandy Hook. We are normal people with normal lives, who have families, children, and jobs. Although many of us haven’t physically met each other, we are united. All we seek are answers to the many inconsistencies. But most importantly, we just want the truth made available to all who might seek it. Over the past two years, efforts to explain and expose the Sandy Hook event may seem to have slowed down. We never slowed down.

Eric Holder announced Exit after FBI told Truth about Sandy Hook Hoax

September 26, 2014 — Truth always triumphs over deceit. Moralmatters finds it very “interesting” that Eric Holder announced his Attorney General exit following the very recent FBI 2012 report disclosing that there were no murders in Newtown, Connecticut. Hence, could it be that this big government [FBI] entity has broken ranks with the massive federal government propaganda machine and its kowtowing corrupted mainstream media? This apparent reality (perhaps) illustrates that Attorney General Eric Holder and his wicked cabal comrade, aka Obama, have lost extensive control over their cabal de facto government.

Consequently, the political demise of the criminal White House ID fraud is marching forward to full exposure. This Moralmatters author has no doubt that aka Obama will be completely exposed for the criminal ID fraud he and his enablers have perpetrated [Proverbs 26:23-28].

Zechariah’s First and Second Visions

Pharisaism is Judaism: before the apostle and prophet Paul was born-again he was a fanatical Pharisee trying to do God a service without it being His will. Acts 9:1-5, “Still breathing out threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, Saul went to the high priest requesting of him letters to synagogues at Damascus, that if he found any Christian men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.” [The euphemistic subterfuge Birkat Ha-Minim “blessing” the Heretics: “let there be no hope for the wicked and for Christians”—a pattern for Revelation 13:15-18]”.

“But as he was nearing Damascus, suddenly a brilliant Light from heaven encircled him! He fell to the ground and heard a Voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me? And he said, Who are you, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom you persecute: it is hard for you to kick against the pricks”.

One who persecutes God’s elect is persecuting God Himself and will be judged. As He told Abraham: “I will bless those who bless you, and curse him who curses you: and in you shall all Gentile nations [of Adam’s race] be blessed” (Genesis 12:3).  Paul would see that “God and the soul that is joined together with God is One Spirit”  (I Corinthians 6:17) for Abraham’s Seed was Jesus Messiah so Christians are Abraham’s seed by the new birth which is the baptism with the Holy Ghost (Genesis 22:18; Galatians 3:26-29), thus he who blesses us will be blessed and he who curses us will be cursed.

Brother Branham said, “Now we can see why there were two vines, one true and one false, [a tiny true Church, and an immense false church (Luke 12:32)]. Now we can see why Abraham had two sons, one after the flesh (who persecuted Isaac) and one after the promise. Now we can see how that out of the same parents two boys came forth as twins, one knowing and loving the things of God, and the other knowing much of the same truth, but not of the same Spirit, hence persecuting the child that was elect. God did not reprobate for the sake of reprobation. He reprobated for the sake of the elect. ELECT CANNOT persecute elect. ELECT CANNOT harm elect. It is the reprobates that persecute and destroy the elect. Oh, those reprobates are religious. They are smart. They are of the Cain line, the serpent seed. They build their Babels, they build their cities, they build their empires, and all the while calling on God. They hate the true seed, and they will do all they can, (even in the Name of the Lord) to destroy God’s elect ones. But they are needed. “What is the chaff to the wheat?” No chaff, no wheat. But at the end, what happens to the chaff? It is burned with fire unquenchable. And the wheat? Where is it? It is gathered in His garner; it is where He is.”

“Oh elect of God, beware. Study closely. Be careful. Work out your salvation with fear and trembling. Rely upon God and be strong in His might. Your adversary, the Devil, is even now going about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. Watch unto prayer and be steadfast. This is the end time. Both the true and false vine are coming into maturity, but before the wheat matures, those ripened tares must be bound for the burning. See, they are all joining the World Council of Churches. That is the binding. Soon the garnering of the wheat will come. But right now the two spirits are at work in two vines. Come out from among the tares. Start to overcome that you may be considered praiseworthy for your Lord, and fit to reign and rule with Him” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 359:1-2).

We aspire to be found praiseworthy as workmen with no cause to be ashamed, and having rightly divided the Message of Truth our first conviction on hearing and believing God’s Word is a need to repent of our shortcomings and past unbelief. After the Judahites had returned from exile and rebuilt Jerusalem and its walls, the Lord said through His prophet Haggai, you have resettled in straitened circumstances: restore My Temple and I will bless you with good seasons and bountiful harvests. Two months later His prophet Zechariah called Judah to repentance: “The Lord was fervently angry with your fathers [evinced in the destruction of their city, His Temple, and their captivity]. Thus says the Lord of hosts; return to Me, and [as a consequence] I will return to you. Do be not like your fathers [who were refractory], to whom the former prophets loudly proclaimed: Thus says the Lord of hosts, return from your evil ways and from your evil deeds: but they did not hear, or heed Me, says the Lord.”

“Your fathers perished [as foretold and their fate ought to warn you]. [I grant] you may say, the prophets are also dead; but My Word endures so beware lest you share their fate. My Words and My statutes overtook and punished your fathers so they repented and said, As the Lord of hosts decreed to do to us for our evil ways and deeds, so has He dealt with us” (Zechariah 1:2-6).

The Church Age fathers and our prophet William Branham are long dead, but his Words will overtake us for good or evil, so let us “work the works of God while it is day: because night comes at the close of the Gentle dispensation when no man can work.” Let us not, like Saul before his conversion “kick against the pricks and persecute Christ” by getting out of step with the Message of the hour. Ours is not religion, habit and duty, but the heartfelt depth of faith in action following the Spirit of Truth who guides us into all truth and shows us things to come. Thus there is little purpose in reading these Newsletters unless your heart is right with God as you will grieve the Holy Spirit.

The foundation of Christ’s true Church has always been a clear revelation of the present Truth followed by obedience not sacrifice (which is for disobedience). Jesus’ nine beatitudes of Matthew 5:3-12 invite us to look into our own heart and examine our attitudes that we may be blessed like the Judahites when they paid heed to Haggai, sanctified themselves and set to the work so that in four years the House of God was rebuilt (Ezra 6:15). I find this interesting because about four years after Israel’s twelve tribes return to the Land of the Covenant the Millennium Temple, which is the 144,000 elect Israelites themselves, will be complete, and they will seal their testimony in Judaeo-Roman Catholic martyrdom when they denounce her pagan trinity of gods.

The visions of Haggai and his contemporary, Zechariah, encompass both the re-construction of King Solomon’s Temple by Zerubbabel and the re-instruction of the millennium Temple by “the two anointed ones who stand by the Lord of all the Earth” for the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel. These will be the Israelite (not Jewish) prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 endued with the Spirit and power that rested upon Moses and Elijah as they call to remembrance the Law of Moses for all Israel with its statutes and judgments, and demonstrate by expounding the prophecies of Scripture fulfilled over 2,000 years of the Gentile dispensation that the Law was but “a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, [as the Law] can never with those sacrifices which they continually offered year after year make the comers thereto perfect” (Malachi 4:4; Hebrews 10:1). These prophets will introduce Jesus Messiah manifest in glorified flesh whose throne and dominion is on Earth, while as the eternal Spirit God’s throne is in heaven (Isaiah 66:1; Revelation 3:21).

Much understanding of Zechariah is gained from the parallel passages of his predecessors prior to the Captivity, removing any uncertainty found in his words, for a good deal of what was future to them is to Zechariah, being a prophet of the restoration like Brother Branham (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11) and Israel’s two witnesses (Malachi 4:4; Acts 3:21-23), either past or present. So it is impossible to explain any of the glowing delineations of Zechariah and Haggai concerning a future state of Israel’s deliverance and enlargement as having been fulfilled in the return from Babylon for they pertain to the millennium. However their immediate design was to encourage the people and their religious and civil leaders, Joshua and Zerubbabel, in their work of rebuilding the temple after the interruption caused by the Samaritans.

As the Lord Jesus spoke to Brother Branham one Sunday morning in June, 1933 and said that the coming of the Lord was drawing nigh but that before He came seven major events would transpire and revealed seven major continuous visions; so in the night of February 15, 519BC He revealed eight visions to Zechariah, each closely connected and revealing an orderly progress in the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel (Zechariah 1:7 – 6:15). Both our Lord Jesus Christ and Brother Branham (who I believe is the interpreting angel of Revelation 1:1 and Zechariah 1:9) appear to and speak with Zechariah in his visions as they appeared to and spoke with John on the Island of Patmos. After His earthly work the mystery of God was shown to Jesus who gave it to one man, William Branham, after the close of the Seventh Church Age (Matthew 24:36; Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 1:1; 10:4-7); like John, Daniel, and Ezekiel, Zechariah was caught up in the Spirit into the Day of the Lord, and looking back through time I understand he saw and heard Brother Branham reveal elements of “things that are to be”.

The first vision sets forth the evident need of divine intervention in behalf of the people with the strong assurance that it shall be vouchsafed. The second indicates one result of this intervention will be the expulsion of Israel’s foes. The third promise, great enlargement and absolute security in the millennium under Messiah. The fourth exhibits the remission of sin, the cause of all the previous troubles, through Christ’s vicarious death. The fifth is a counterpart to the fourth by promising the positive communication of God’s Spirit and grace which secures sanctification as well as justification. The sixth is the curse on a scroll, recorded against sin flying over Judah and ultimately the whole earth; this will extirpate the impenitent by the fearful curse of God upon all sinners of whatever class. The seventh, the woman in the ephah signifies wickedness and Babylonian idolatry which will cease from the elect Israelites in the Day of the Lord. The eighth shows the accomplishment of everything promised by the first vision. The executors of God’s judgment go forth from Jerusalem’s sanctified mountains of brass upon the heathen persecutors and do not stay their hands until God’s Spirit is completely satisfied. The eighth vision shows the union of the Priesthood and Kingship in Jesus Messiah, and reveals the conversion of the Gentile Church in the days of the Branch to His Wife, Israel’s Queen.

The First Vision

Zechariah 1:8-17, “I received a vision at night wherein I saw a Man mounted upon a red horse that was standing among the myrtle trees in the glen; and behind Him were bay, tawny, and white horses. I asked, what are these my lord? And the angel that talked with me said, I will show you what these are. And the Man who stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These are those whom the Lord sent to patrol the earth. And the [riders] answered the Angel of the Lord who was standing among the myrtle trees, We have patrolled the earth, and the whole earth remains at rest. Then the Angel of the Lord answered and said, O Lord of hosts, how long will you not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which you have had indignation these seventy years”?

“And the Lord answered with gracious and comfortable words to the angel who talked with me. Then the angel that was speaking with me said, Publicly proclaim, Thus says the Lord of hosts; I am exceedingly jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion, and I am vehemently displeased with the nations that are at ease: for while I was but a little displeased they afflicted them beyond My intentions. Therefore thus says the Lord; I have returned to Jerusalem with compassion: My house shall be rebuilt, says the Lord of hosts, and the measuring line shall be stretched out over Jerusalem. Proclaim moreover, Thus says the Lord of hosts; through prosperity My cities will be spread abroad; and the Lord will once more comfort Zion, and again choose Jerusalem. Again loudly proclaim, Thus says the Lord of hosts: My cities shall again overflow with prosperity, and the Lord will once again comfort Zion and again choose Jerusalem”.

The Man riding the red horse in Zechariah 1:8, 10 and 12 is “the Angel of the Covenant” incarnate in created flesh as when He appeared to Abraham (Genesis 18:1) and to Hagar (Genesis 16:7), wrestled Jacob (Genesis 32:24) and appeared to Gideon (Judges 6:11-24). Genesis 22:11, Exodus 3:2, Malachi 3:1 and many other Scriptures reveal God manifest in One created Man before His incarnation in the virgin-born Jesus Christ (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; I Timothy 3:16). This confirms Matthew 24:36, “No man, not the angels of heaven, but only My Father knows the day and hour of the end of the world [and My second ‘erchomai’ return]”.

The colour of the horse symbolizes the purpose of its Rider, namely wrath and bloodshed to be inflicted on the foes of Israel (as Satan, the rider of the red horse in Revelation 6:4 slaughtered the saints from Pentecost to Pergamos). The myrtle that once grew on the hills about Jerusalem and on the Mount of Olives hereafter grows in what was a wilderness. Not stately like the cedar, the lowly though fragrant myrtle signifies the Old Testament Church of the Judahites in their affliction as a result of the Captivity (Isaiah 41:19; 55:13). The Angel of the Lord standing among them in the depression intercedes with Jehovah for Israel and is a guarantee for her safety, lowly though she now is. Behind the first Rider are horsemen sent to exact judgment against the nations, their ultimate victory over the world indicated by the rearguard of white horses (Revelation 19:11-14).

Zechariah enquires of his guiding angel, “O my lord, what are these? And the angel that talked with me said, I will show you what they are.” But the Angel of the Covenant answers, indicating that everything the interpreting angel says comes from Him as its source and is therefore THUS SAITH THE LORD. “These are they whom the Lord has sent to patrol the earth.” Otherwise these are sent to counterwork and destroy the four Gentile world empires.

The riders’ report that the Gentile world is dwelling in serene repose, untroubled by any foe, is disturbingly contrary to Judah’s expectation of a massive convulsion of nature based on Haggai 2:6-7, “Thus says the Lord of hosts; Once more, in a little while, I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land; and I will shake all nations, and the Desire of all nations [Messiah] will come: and I will fill this house with glory, says the Lord of hosts.” But of course this vision was shut up and sealed to the close of the Laodicean Church Age when its mystery would be revealed to us through the angel to the Seventh Church Age, then to Israel by their “two witnesses” (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4-7).

Neither the Judahites nor the riders in judgment foresaw the Gentile dispensation and Christ’s ‘parousia’ Coming to us before Haggai’s earthquakes; or Christ’s ‘parousia’ to Israel before His physical return with the glorified saints of all Ages to restore the Kingdom to Israel. They could not contemplate Israel remaining under Gentile dominion—as it is and will be—from Nebuchadnezzar’s conquest to the consummation of life (Daniel 9:27), or imagine that the sixfold purpose of Gabriel’s visit to Daniel would remain unfulfilled until almost 2,600 years later when Israel—all 144,000 of them—is born-again in one day then martyred for their Christian faith by the reprobate church (Matthew 27:25; Revelation 6:13; 7:1-8; 14 and 15).

Peace in the world means persecution for the Israelites. I Thessalonians 5:3, “When they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” Brother Branham said, “I’ve sent a persecution here and a persecution there, and I’ve run the Jews [he means Israelites] and drove them as hard as I could. And they’ve drove back in. Many Jews in the United States (which they won’t escape from) has already received the Holy Ghost. But I’ve got all of the hundred and forty-four thousand [Israelites] standing there [in Israel] that’s going to receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost” (COD, p. 97:235). The announcement of peace will herald Daniel’s Seventieth Week, “the time of Jacob’s trouble” and the great tribulation (Jeremiah 30:7; Isaiah 14).

Knowing it will bring consolation and hope to the Judahites, the Angel of the Lord intercedes with the Lord as He would in the days of His flesh (Matthew 26:39, 42; John 8:28) showing that Father, Son and Holy Ghost are three dispensation claims or offices of the One Person of God): “How long will you have no mercy on Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah”? The Lord communicates His answer directly to the guiding angel, whom I believe is Brother Branham, who gives His answer to Zechariah. The seventy years of Judah’s desolations (Jeremiah 25:12; Daniel 9:2) are past. Although the people have been restored, the population was small, the land largely a waste, they remained in a depressed state, and there was no sign of the violent convulsions of nature expected upon the heathen world.

They were anticipating the restoration of the Kingdom; little realizing that in 500 years Israel would murder her Messiah and suffer seven times more for her sin through 2,000 years of the Gentile dispensation. That is “How long”! Then grace will end for the world as when “God’s voice shook the earth [after Israel went from grace to the Law]: now He has promised [in Haggai], Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, “Yet once more,” signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made [creeds, catechisms, and ritual], that those things which cannot be shaken [faith in His unfailing promises] may remain. Since we have a Kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and awe: for our God is a consuming Fire” (Hebrews 12:26-28; Daniel 2:44; Haggai 2:5-9).

In order to be understood by all, the communicating angel is ordered to pronounce the immutable “THUS SAITH THE LORD, I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion. And I burn with vehement anger at the heathen in their state of carnal security, overconfident in their power and prosperity, but mainly because they have exceeded the chastisement I ordered upon Judah in love with a view to correction, to evil-entreating them for their own pleasure.” Consequently the Lord declares He has returned to Jerusalem with mercies. All hindrances will be removed, the Temple will be restored, and the whole city shall pass under the surveyor’s measuring line for building. Furthermore the communicating angel is commanded to publicly proclaim “THUS SAITH THE LORD, the prosperity shall overflow to the other cities throughout Judah in assurance God has by no means renounced His original purpose in choosing Jerusalem for His habitation”.

When the red horses returned from the conquest of Babylon the Judahites had “rest” under the Medo-Persian and Greek empires which were kindly disposed. And did you note a future “measuring” foreshadowed in verses 16 and 17 by the rod of the Message of the two prophets of Zechariah 4, Matthew 24:31 and Revelation 11:1-4? This will separate 144,000 elect Israelites—“those who worship in the Sanctuary of the Temple” and “raise up children to Abraham” as “lively stones” in His millennium Temple.

The objective of this first vision was to demonstrate that God’s love is elective love and to encourage the dispirited Judahites that although there was no present appearance of the blessings promised in Haggai 2, yet these blessings were vouchsafed. Zechariah revealed the riders of God’s righteous judgments on the ungodly nations, and like his predecessors looks down the whole vista of the future and outlines landmarks that do not exhaust the prophecy in one period but wrap up long cycles of historical development in terse, pregnant sentences.

The Second Vision

Zechariah 1:18-21, “[Having sunk down in meditation after seeing my first vision] I raised my eyes and saw four horns, and I asked the angel who was speaking with me, What are these? And he answered, These are the horns that have [past tense] scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.”

“Then the Lord showed me four craftsmen [skilful destroyers or warriors], and I said, What are these coming to do? He answered, These are the horns which have scattered Judah to such extent that no one could lift up his head, but these [skilful destroyers] have come to rout them and to cast down the horns of the Gentiles, who lifted up their horn against the land of Judah to scatter it”.

image of Nebuchadnezzar's dreamA horn signifies a kingdom or national power and these four horns represent four successive Gentile world empires God would raise up to chastise and discipline the Israelites throughout “the times of the Gentiles” from Judah’s defeat by “Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant” in 605BC to the consummation of life early in our twenty-first century (Luke 21:24; Daniel 9:27; Hosea 6:1-3). God represented the four horns to Nebuchadnezzar in the interpretation of his dream in Daniel 2 (explained in chapters 7 to 12 and Revelation 17). The four skilful destroyers or warriors sent to rout and cast out the four horns are the succeeding three horns, while the fourth is a “Stone cut out of the mountain without hands that will smite the image in the days of the ten toes of the feet that mingle themselves with the seed of men [“as it was in the days of Noah” (Matthew 24:37; Genesis 6:1-4)]. In the days of these ten kingdoms the God of heaven will set up a Kingdom that will never be destroyed, but will break in pieces and consume them all, and it shall stand for ever” (Daniel 2:42-45).

Stone Kingdom, Christ and His Bride of all Ages's dreamThis unfolds the first vision in which the Lord is shown with the Medes and Persians, having taken the Babylonian empire and slain King Belshazzar, at rest among the myrtle trees on bloodied war horses. “God’s anointed shepherd, King Cyrus of Persia” extended this rest to the Judeans as prophesied two hundred years beforehand (Isaiah 44:28; 45:1). Behind them in the vision, that is to say in the future, stand three hosts of skilful destroyers or warriors who will rout and cast out the remainder of the enemies of God and Israel: Greeks, Romans, and the Stone cut out of the mountain without hands which answers to the Stature of a Perfect Man, the white horses of the first vision and the Rider and His followers on white horses in the vision of Revelation 19:11-21 (where Brother Branham makes another appearance):

“I . . . . (insert your name here, because throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ’s end-time Bride, the only group to whom the Message of the angel, Brother Branham, is revealed) . . . . saw heaven opened, and beheld a white horse whose Rider is called Faithful and True; in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of Fire, and on His head are many crowns with a Name inscribed which no one [of worldly understanding] knows. He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His Name is called The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, clad in fine linen, white and pure, followed Him upon white horses. Out of His mouth issues a sharp Sword with which to smite the nations: and He will rule them with a rod of iron [at the White Throne Judgment]: and He treads the winepress of the furious wrath God Almighty. On His robe and on His thigh He has a Name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS”.

In Revelation 6:8 Satan had the name “Death” wrote on him; Christ’s got Life wrote on Him. Those with Him are on white horses also, and they are called “the chosen before the foundation of the world.” Amen. And they are faithful to the Word. Amen. Whew, I like that one. Called “chosen before the foundation of the world” and then faithful to the Word by their choosing, all stimulated with new wine and oil just riding right along, coming down to meet Him” (William Branham, The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 322:5; John 6:63).

“Then I saw an angel standing in the Sun; and he proclaimed with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in midheaven, Come gather for the great supper of God; to feast on the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, small and great.”

In Ezekiel 39:17 God says, “And you son of man, THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD, speak to the birds of every feather, and to every beast of the field: Assemble yourselves and come, gather from every quarter to the great sacrificial feast that I am preparing for you upon the mountains of Israel, at which you shall eat flesh, and drink blood.” This Angel standing in the Light of “the Sun of righteousness with healing [resurrection and translation power] in His beams” (Malachi 4:2; Ephesians 1:19-20; Revelation 19:17) is the fullness of the Spirit that veiled behind Brother Branham after Christ opened the Seals. Thus he was “the firstfruit of those who are Christs at His ‘parousia’ Coming . . . and if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy: and if the Root is holy, so are the branches [you and me]” (I Corinthians 15:23; Romans 11:16). His ministry revealed “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), doing the SAME miracles and “discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart . . . as it was in the days of Lot” (Hebrews 4:12; Luke 17:28-30; Genesis 18). This was the LAST sign Jesus promised us Gentiles before the close of our dispensation.

Brother Branham said, “The Bridegroom call will come right through this, when the Son of man will come down and come in human flesh to unite the two together. The Church has to be the Word; He is the Word, and the two unites together, and to do that it’ll take the manifestation of the revealing of the Son of man. Not a clergyman [i.e. Brother Branham] . . . Do you see what I mean? See, it’s Son of man, Jesus Christ, will come down in human flesh among us. [The Angel of Ezekiel 1:28 and 43:2-3 is the “Mighty Angel” of Revelation 10:1-4 and 18:1 veiled behind “a son of man” to reveal “the Son of man”] and will make His Word so real that it’ll unite the Church and Him as one, the Bride, and then she’ll go Home to the wedding supper. Amen. She’s already united (See?); we go to the wedding supper, not to the marriage. “Fill your flesh . . . self, of all the flesh of mighty men, ’cause the marriage of the Lamb has come” [(Revelation 19:7-18)]. But the rapture is going to the wedding supper. When the Word here unites with the person, and they two become one, and then what does it do then? It manifests the Son of man again, not the church theologians, the Son of man. The Word and the Church becomes one. Whatever the Son of man done, He was the Word, the Church does the same thing”  (Proving His Word, p. 44:236).

This vision of the “Angel standing in the Sun” is Ephesians 1:10, the end-time equivalent of the vision of Revelation 12:1 which portrayed the elect Israelites who constituted the inaugural saints of the New Testament Church having crossed over from the Law into grace. The Law that was represented by the Moon which reflects the light of the Sun as “a shadow of good things to come,” is now under her feet and the true Church is crowned with apostolic faith signified by twelve stars over her head. Stars reflect the Light of the Sun in its absence and the Church is clothed in the Light of the ascended S_O_N.

In Matthew 13:39-41 Jesus said, “The harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels [or messengers to the seven Church Ages]. As therefore the tares are gathered [first in ecumenical councils such as the World Council of Churches, the charismatic movement, inter-faith groups, etc,] and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth His angels, [Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley, and William Branham] and they shall gather out of His Kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity”.

Brother Branham explained, “An Angel is coming to bring the separation, the segregation between the right and the wrong. And no one can do that but the Angel of the Lord. He’s the One that’s going to tell which is right and which is wrong. God said He will send His angels at the last times. Not angels down through here, but angels at the last time, and would gather together. We know that this is the coming harvest time now. Now, and angel is actually interpreted a “messenger.” And we see that there is seven angels . . . through the Church Ages . . .”

“Notice who He said that the sowers were, and also what the Seed was. One, the sower was He, the Son of God, who went forth sowing Seed. And an enemy came behind Him, which was the Devil, and sowed the seed of discrepancy, behind the sowing of the right Seed. Now, friends, that has happened through every Age since we’ve had a world. Exactly. All the way from the beginning, it started the very same thing.”

“Now, He said, “The Seed of God, the Word of God . . .” Jesus said in a certain place, that the Word is a Seed [(Luke 8:11)]. And every seed will bring forth of its kind [(Genesis 1:11; Matthew 5:45; Hebrews 6:7-8)]. And now, if the Christian, the children of God, the children of the Kingdom has become the Seed of God, then they must be the Word of God, the Word of God manifested in the Age that they’re living in, for the promised Seed of that Age [i.e. “the present Truth” (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7)]. God gave His Word at the beginning, and each Age has had its Seed, its time, its promises . . .” (The Seed of Discrepancy, p. 5:19-21).

Matthew 24:3bAs Paul prophesied in Ephesians 1:10, “In the dispensation of the fulness of times [seven Church Ages] He might gather together in One all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth.” As required by Psalm 19, the sign of this event was shown to the world on February 28, 1963 before the fulfillment of Scripture. It was the Shekinah in the form of the Pillar of Cloud signifying Christ’s imminent ‘parousia’ Coming. The seven portions of the Spirit that anointed seven earthly angels or Church Age messengers were gathered as the fullness of the Spirit over Sunset Mountain on March 8, 1963 when Christ opened the Seven Seals and caught up His Prophet into a constellation of the seven stars, angels, seraphim or theophanies representing God’s stone Bible—the Great Pyramid Enoch built—which is the Word; when the photographs are turned to the right they portray Jesus Christ wigged as Judge looking down upon the world (Revelation 1:16, 20; John 5:27; Daniel 7:9; Revelation 1:14).

This signified the “Mighty Angel,” Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Lord fulfilling Ezekiel 1:28; 43:2, Revelation 10:1-4, and 18:8. It was the fullness of the Spirit that would veil itself behind the sin-born flesh of William Branham as it had veiled itself behind the created flesh of Melchisedec in Genesis 18, and the virgin-born man in the Gospels to reveal Jesus Christ. Seven portions of the Spirit revealed PART-Word to the Church Age saints, but only the fullness of the Spirit could unveil the fullness of the Word, hence Brother Branham said, “The Elijah of this day will be Jesus Christ” (Trying to do God a Service without it being God’s Will, p. 33:212; God of this Evil Age, p. 38:170; The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 360:5-7; 464:5; 466:5; The Pergamean Church Age, p. 282:320; Demonology, p. 44:21-22; Why I am against Organized Religion, p. 34:194-223).

The Elijah of I Kings 18 slew the prophets of Baal, the enemies of God and Israel in the time of the latter rain following the evening sacrifice in the days of King Ahab and his domineering pagan Queen, Jezebel. He prophesied: “dogs will lick Ahab’s blood. . . and eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel; the members of your family who die in the city will be eaten by dogs, and those who die in the country will be eaten by vultures” (I Kings 21:17-26). This established the type for Revelation 19:17 showing that it is the prophetic ministry of William Branham—Matthew 25:6, I Thessalonians 4:16, Revelation 14:9-11 and 18:1-3—the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6, that will invite the birds and beasts to eat the sacrifice of the enemies of God and Israel in the days of the latter rain after the evening sacrifice of the 144,000 is received. Brother Branham expounds this in The Revelation of the Seven Sealsp. 325:1 – 330:4. Jezebel, that dominating woman, represents the apostate world church system, “MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS [her (once) Protestant daughters (Revelation 2:20-24)] AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH [like Islam]” under whom the apostate United States (and her allies) will soon submit. Daniel and Jesus foretold the Judaeo-Roman Catholic false church will rule the world in league with the blooded military of a (once) Protestant United States of America, killing all recalcitrants and dissenters (Daniel 7:15-27; Revelation 17:1-6; 13:15-18).

Her Ahab and head of this Jezebel religion will be the Devil-incarnate pope, the eighth Roman Emperor to deify himself (Isaiah 14:13-14; II Thessalonians 2:3-12; Revelation 17:10-11). By delivering their kingdoms into his hand as champion against Judaeo-Communism the kings of the earth (the Black Nobility and NATO) will make him a counterfeit “king of kings” and usurper of Christ as implied by his title, VICARIVS FILII DEI (Revelation 16:13-14; 17:12-14). And you want to be a Roman Catholic??? This Scripture speaks of Armageddon and the consummation of life.

“Then I saw the beast [Rome and reprobate humanity] and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered to make war against [Jesus Christ “whose Name is called The Word of God”], the One mounted on the horse, and against His army. And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet [or pope] who wrought miracles in his presence, by means of which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast [trinitarian worship] and those who worshipped his image [the (once) Protestant churches]. These two were cast alive into the lake of Fire burning with brimstone. And the rest [of humanity] were slain with the Sword that issued from the mouth of the One mounted on the horse. And all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh”.

God called Nebuchadnezzar “My servant” (Jeremiah 27:6) and sent him to chastise blasphemous Judah when it followed the Northern Tribes into trinitarian worship. His grandson the secondary king Belshazzar set Eastern propriety at naught, introducing women, even concubines and sensuality at his feast, and whose crowning guilt was to profane the vessels of God’s Temple to be instruments of revelry to himself, his princes, wives and concubines, drinking out of them in honour of his gods, thus persecuting Jesus. To mark the inseparable connection of sin and punishment “the same hour” God wrote his doom on the wall and “skilful destroyers” of the Medes and Persians took the kingdom and slew Belshazzar (Daniel 5; I Thessalonians 5:3-7).

“Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem” were already scattered and Judah was a province of Persia at the time of Zechariah’s vision. Israel is mentioned, not to indicate the Northern Kingdom which God dispersed two centuries earlier, but to identify those of the restoration as people of the Covenant. It was Persia, now known as Iran, that released the Judahites, returned the Temple treasures that had been carried to Babylon, and helped fund the restoration of God’s Temple. This is of no consequence to the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews in their enmity against the genuine Semitic Iranians (Genesis 3:15). Alexander’s Greek empire succeeded the Medo-Persians and was in its turn supplanted by Imperial Rome. Her political and military power waned but “her deadly wound was healed” (Revelation 13:3) when Emperor Constantine united the Roman state with the remnants of the apostate First Church of Rome established by the apostles Junius and Andronicus. Constantine backed the union by force and the spirit that motivated pagan Rome now inspires false Christian Rome. The fourth empire never went out of existence; it just changed in its outer texture. Papal false Christian Rome now controls by religion even more ably than when pagan Imperial Rome controlled by the pure iron of force.

After the close of the Gentile dispensation the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and her (once) Protestant daughters will reunite with the state—the apostate United States (and other colonies of ‘the City of London’)—which is “the image unto the beast” of Imperial Rome. Whereas God raised up Nebuchadnezzar to destroy Judah, He has raised Judaeo-Communism to destroy the false church and the United States. This will precipitate Armageddon and the consummation of Life.

The four horns have scattered the Israelites, who must not be confused with their impersonators, the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Edomite and Khazar Jews of Europe and America. Scripture informs us all twelve tribes dwell primarily in the environs of the Muslim lands of the ancient Assyrian Empire (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:14; 27:13; 49:17; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 37:14; 39:27; Micah 5:3; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31; Revelation 12:14, etc,). One should never conflate Jews with the descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob: the Bible, history, and their most eminent scholars prove that “Jew” is a modern word found in no Bible prior to the latter half of the eighteenth century. Its meaning is contrary to the two words it has replaced, and Jews are seldom Judahites, Judeans, or even a Semitic people.

This is confirmed by Matthew 24:31. After the close of the Gentile dispensation “The Son of man will send His angels [the Hebrew prophets (of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11)] with the great sound of the [Seventh] Trumpet (I Thessalonians 4:16; I Corinthians 15:52), and they will gather together His [144,000] elect from the four winds [the war and strife that have scattered them] from one end of heaven to the other [under the dominion of the four Gentile world powers].” Contrary to the understanding of the majority of believers in the circle of this Message, the Israelites have NOT yet been “gathered together” to the land of the Covenant “for fear of the Jews.” According to Jesus in Matthew and the Scriptures delineated above they will not return until after the CLOSE of the Gentile dispensation.

Brother Branham said, “National force [“skilful destroyers”] put [the nation of] Israel in her homeland [whose citizens call themselves ‘Israelis’ because they know they are NOT Israelites but impersonators]. National force [“skilful destroyers”] will put the church in the World Council of Churches. But the power of God will put the people in the Bride. The world forces this way, and the world forces that way, but God forces upward, the Spirit of God, which is the Word of God—”My Word is Spirit and Life will put the Bride in her place,” ’cause she’ll recognize her position in the Word; then she’s in Christ—will put her in her place. No national force will do it. But the national force did drive Israel to the homeland. The national forces of the [Rockefellers’] Council of Churches will drive every organization into it, but the power of God will raise the Bride into glory, out of it” (Recognizing your Day and Its Message, p. 34:192; 1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3).

“We Jews, we are the Destroyers and will remain the Destroyers. Nothing you can do will meet our demands and needs. We will forever destroy because we want a world of our own” (Maurice Samuels, You Gentiles, p. 155; Benjamin Franklin; Genesis 3:15). These “skilful destroyers,” of apostate (once) Christian nations are presently persecuting political Islam, forcing innocent people into World War III against political Zion with the objective of bringing both under submission to their god Lucifer’s totalitarian one world government. I believe World War III has been ongoing at least since 9/11 but has not yet reached the “hot stage” which will be precipitated by the earthquakes prophesied by Haggai, Zechariah, Jesus Messiah and others, sinking Los Angeles, cleaving the Mount of Olives and demolishing the Dome of the Rock at the close of the Gentile dispensation and the start of Daniel’s Seventieth Week. The military blueprint for this war was determined in 1871. After “the world sitteth still, and [is again] at rest” Rome will break her covenant with the self-styled Jewish banksters, then Judaeo-Communist Russia will annihilate both the United States and Vatican City State, and Armageddon will set in.

This vision carries forward the assurance given in the first vision by explaining the provision God has made for repelling the foes of elect Israelites of the Old Covenant—from the Captivity to the close of Daniel’s Seventieth Week. Hebrews 10:30-31, “God has said, Vengeance belongs to Me, I will recompense, says the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge His people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God”. nl865.htm
