Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it is good to have you with us.

Award-winning journalist and filmmaker John Pilger explains “Why the Rise of Fascism is again the Issue,” however the issue for the past 2,000 years is Romanism. Fascism and Nazism came out of Rome and will be subsumed in Judaeo-Communism, a spirit which Jesus calls “Laodicea.” These three spirits are gathering the world to Armageddon and the consummation (Revelation 16:13-15). So bypass persistent propaganda that has whined about the extermination of six million Jews from at least June 11, 1900 (The New York Times, Chief Rabbi of the United States, Stephen S. Wise), and 1902 Encyclopaedia Britannica (10th Ed. Vol. XXV p. 482).

Award-deserving contributing author and political commentator John Kaminski suggests “You should be concerned about Your Hopeless Future” and shows that even if your representative is a person of integrity, he is outnumbered by “men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.” Speaking to His Bride Jesus said, “Rejoice, you citizens of heaven, rejoice! Be glad! But woe to you inhabiters of the earth and the sea, because the Devil has come down to you with raging anger, well aware that his time is short” (Revelation 12:12).

Both articles and the news items illustrate how the ‘squeeze’ is being applied with irrepressable power on this materially rich yet spiritually bankrupt world by the US image to the beast of Imperial Rome so that in several years it will force the whole earth to serve the Papal Roman beast (Revelation 3:17-20; 13:11-18; Daniel 7:7-8; 19-24). Speaking of the ‘third pull,’ the Prophet said, “it will not be used in a great way, until this World Council of Churches begins to tighten up . . . The Pentecostals and so forth can almost impersonate anything could be done, but when that time comes, when the squeeze comes down, then you’ll see what you have seen temporarily be manifested in the fullness of its power” (Look Away to Jesus, p. 5:39).

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.

Venezuelan Opposition Mayor, ‘Vampire,’ arrested for Role in Blue Coup Plot

February 19, 2015 — Venezuelan opposition Mayor and longtime rightwing politician, Antonio Ledezma, has been arrested by the country’s intelligence services, SEBIN, for his alleged role in plotting to stage a coup against the democratically elected government of Nicolas Maduro.

The planned coup was uncovered last week by security forces, just hours before several US-backed Air Force officials had planned to partake in a bombing spree of strategic targets in the capital. They had hoped this would lead to the assassination of the country’s president and bring about regime change in the South American country . . . It is not the first time that Ledezma has been implicated in a plan to violently overthrow the government . . .

Comment: Revelation 13:11-12, “I beheld another beast coming up out of the United States; and he had two horns [civil and ecclestical power] like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. And he exercises all the power of the Imperial Rome, and causes the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed by its transformation to Papal Rome”.


Internet needs to be ‘regulated’ to suppress Videos and Search Results deemed ‘Anti-Semitic’

February 26, 2015 — [Jewish] French president François Hollande has said his government will soon announce a raft of tough criminal laws to crack down on anti-Semitism, racism, homophobia and Holocaust denial . . . But the measures are likely only to make matters worse, among other things by criminalizing criticism of Israel and further conflating Zionism with Judaism . . . the laws would become more punitive, so that “no anti-Semitic word or act goes without a response” . . . anti-Muslim hate attacks in France in January alone exceeded the entire number recorded in 2014.

He did not announce any specific measures to combat this alarming phenomenon . . . [or] consider that it was “Western” interventions in Syria, Iraq, Libya and elsewhere that gave rise to the menace known as Islamic State . . . It is Israel-government-backed religious fanatics who yearn—and plan—to destroy the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem and replace it with a “Jewish temple” . . . If we can say that the horrific actions of Islamic State are a perversion of the beliefs of the vast majority of the world’s Muslims, can we also not say that Zionism is a perversion of Judaism?

South Africa – Failed Land of Communist ANC Diaspora & White Genocide

February 16, 2015 — Stephen Goodson, former independent non-executive director of the South African Reserve Bank (2003-2012) and UBUNTU Party Parliamentary candidate in the 2014 general election, was interviewed at Kleinmond police station by Colonel Adriaan Schilz . . .

Mr. Goodson, who was assisted by his legal adviser, is being investigated on suspicion of having committed a “crime,” by disclosing secret dealings of the SARB, and what Goodson has called “various criminal activities which have taken place at the Reserve Bank over a long period of time” . . . After an extended interview, Schilz terminated the meeting out of sheer exasperation. This action highlights the secretive activity of SARB and the secrecy clause that protects this establishment from being exposed, and prevents ordinary people who have been harmed by its actions from attaining justice.

Furthermore, it clearly highlights the fact that the SARB operates above the law and masquerades as both a private corporation and a government institution protected by legislature . . . THE SOUTH AFRICAN RESERVE BANK IS FORECLOSED by the UCC process by the OPPT on December 25, 2012 and not allowed to do any more business—and the legal aid advised Col. Schilz that a “massive investigation must be launched against the Reserve Bank for theft, fraudulent activity and massive destruction perpetrated against South Africa by the Reserve Bank” . . . This whole “democracy” spectacle is one MEGA Jewish FRAUD! How many whites have been murdered for this? How many whites are jailed for this conspiracy? . . . The whole “Free Mandela” hysterical thing and “Apartheid” bleating was a mega false flag operation orchestrated by the Jew banksters and a FARCE!

. . . F.W. De Klerk STOLE R 12 billion rands from the public—and our Reserve gold—3,000 tonnes—was stolen by the ANC/NP conspirators out of Zurich—and sent to New York to help the Jew banksters there—the amount of gold was R 2 TRILLION . . . Full story: whitenationnetwork.com


Climate Revolt Spreads

February 27, 2015 — What great cause could unite Prince Charles, President Obama, the Pope, the Arab Oil sheiks, the United Nations, the European Union, the Russians, the Chinese, Pacific Island Nations, most undeveloped countries, the glitterati of Hollywood, left-wing politicians, unrepentant reds, government media, the climate research industry, Big Oil, Big Gas and the Green Blob. It must be something posing a clear and urgent danger to all humanity?

No, the crusade that unites them all is the War on Carbon Fuels, focused mainly on that most vilified target, coal.

The biggest group, and the generals in this war on carbon, has no real interest in the facts or science of global climate change—they see climate alarmism as a great opportunity to achieve their goal of creating an unelected global government. They have even laid out their plans in a document called Agenda 21.

This group naturally includes the United Nations and all of its subsidiaries, the EU, and left wing politicians and media everywhere. At a news conference in Brussels recently, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of UN’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity, but to change the economic development model” i.e. destroy what is left of free enterprise and private property.

As someone said “When placing a bet, the best horse to back is the one called ‘Self-interest’—at least you know he is trying.” For example, Shell, with its massive gas interests, was caught campaigning against coal fired power, the main competitor of gas in electricity generation. Arab Oil interests were caught funding a film attacking their competitors—shale oil fracking in America. And a Russian oil company was exposed funding US anti-carbon green groups.

The Chinese of course are great supporters of green energy as long as it is installed elsewhere—e.g. they supply the machines and solar panels and then welcome the factories forced from the host country by soaring electricity prices . . .

2015 is the make-or-break year for climate alarmism, with a crucial battle planned for Paris in November. So we can expect regular bursts of global warming propaganda. The year started on cue with a breathless announcement from the US National Climate Data Centre: “2014 was Earth’s warmest year on record” (their records start in 1880). The Little Ice Age ended in about 1880. Therefore it is no surprise that global temperatures have generally risen since then. And it reveals nothing about the cause of the warming . . . ice core data goes back 20,000 years. These show there were several periods in the last 10,000 years with global temperatures significantly above that for 2014 . . . Global climate is on a Natural see-saw not a man-made tipping point . . . Full story: carbon-sense.com


Why the Rise of Fascism is again the Issue

By John Pilger Copyright © John Pilger, Global Research, 2015

US NATO War Agenda. In-depth Report: Ukraine Report.

The recent 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz was a reminder of the great crime of fascism, whose Nazi iconography is embedded in our consciousness. Fascism is preserved as history, as flickering footage of goose-stepping Blackshirts, their criminality terrible and clear. Yet in the same liberal societies, whose war-making elites urge us never to forget, the accelerating danger of a modern kind of fascism is suppressed; for it is their fascism.

“To initiate a war of aggression . . . ,” said the Nuremberg Tribunal judges in 1946, “is not only an international crime, it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.”

Had the Nazis not invaded Europe, Auschwitz and the Holocaust would not have happened. [Factually the Nazis did not “invade Europe,” there was no holocaust or extermination by Germany in either World War I or II as claimed, and the Allies were the aggressors in World Wars I and II as they are in World War III today]. Had the United States and its satellites not initiated their war of aggression in Iraq in 2003, almost a million people would be alive today; and Islamic State, or ISIS, would not have us in thrall to its savagery. They are the progeny of modern fascism, weaned by the bombs, bloodbaths and lies that are the surreal theatre known as news.

Like the fascism of the 1930s and 1940s, BIG LIES are delivered with the precision of a metronome: thanks to an omnipresent, repetitive media and its virulent censorship by omission. Take the catastrophe in Libya.

In 2011, NATO launched 9,700 “strike sorties” against Libya, of which more than a third were aimed at civilian targets. Uranium warheads were used; the cities of Misurata and Sirte were carpet-bombed. The Red Cross identified mass graves, and UNICEF reported that “most [of the children killed] were under the age of ten”.

The public sodomising of the Libyan president Muammar Gaddafi with a “rebel” bayonet was greeted by the then US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, with the words: “We came, we saw, he died.” His murder, like the destruction of his country, was justified with a familiar BIG LIE; he was planning “genocide” against his own people. “We knew . . . that if we waited one more day,” said President Obama, “Benghazi, a city the size of Charlotte, could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world”.

This was the fabrication of Islamist militias facing defeat by Libyan government forces. They told Reuters there would be “a real bloodbath, a massacre like we saw in Rwanda.” Reported on March 14, 2011, the LIE provided the first spark for NATO’s inferno, described by David Cameron as a “humanitarian intervention”.

Secretly supplied and trained by Britain’s SAS, many of the “rebels” would become ISIS, whose latest video offering shows the beheading of 21 Coptic Christian workers seized in Sirte, the city destroyed on their behalf by NATO bombers.

For Obama, Cameron and Hollande, Gaddafi’s true crime was Libya’s economic independence and his declared intention to stop selling Africa’s greatest oil reserves in US dollars. The petrodollar is a pillar of American imperial power. Gaddafi audaciously planned to underwrite a common African currency backed by gold, establish an all-Africa bank and promote economic union among poor countries with prized resources. Whether or not this would happen, the very notion was intolerable to the US as it prepared to “enter” Africa and bribe African governments with military “partnerships”.

Following NATO’s attack under cover of a Security Council resolution, Obama, wrote Garikai Chengu, “confiscated $30 billion from Libya’s Central Bank, which Gaddafi had earmarked for the establishment of an African Central Bank and the African gold backed dinar currency”.

The “humanitarian war” against Libya drew on a model close to western liberal hearts, especially in the media. In 1999, Bill Clinton and Tony Blair sent NATO to bomb Serbia, because, they LIED, the Serbs were committing “genocide” against ethnic Albanians in the secessionist province of Kosovo. David Scheffer, US ambassador-at-large for war crimes [sic], claimed that as many as “225,000 ethnic Albanian men aged between 14 and 59” might have been murdered. Both Clinton and Blair evoked the Holocaust and “the spirit of the Second World War”. The West’s heroic allies were the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), whose criminal record was set aside. The British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, told them to call him any time on his mobile phone.

With the NATO bombing over, and much of Serbia’s infrastructure in ruins, along with schools, hospitals, monasteries and the national TV station, international forensic teams descended upon Kosovo to exhume evidence of the “holocaust.” The FBI failed to find a single mass grave and went home. The Spanish forensic team did the same, its leader angrily denouncing “a semantic pirouette by the war propaganda machines.” A year later, a United Nations tribunal on Yugoslavia announced the final count of the dead in Kosovo: 2,788. This included combatants on both sides and Serbs and Roma murdered by the KLA. There was no genocide. The “holocaust” was a LIE. The NATO attack had been fraudulent.

Behind the LIE, there was serious purpose. Yugoslavia was a uniquely independent, multi-ethnic federation that had stood as a political and economic bridge in the Cold War. Most of its utilities and major manufacturing was publicly owned. This was not acceptable to the expanding European Community, especially newly united Germany, which had begun a drive east to capture its “natural market” in the Yugoslav provinces of Croatia and Slovenia. By the time the Europeans met at Maastricht in 1991 to lay their plans for the disastrous eurozone, a secret deal had been struck; Germany would recognise Croatia. Yugoslavia was doomed.

In Washington, the US saw that the struggling Yugoslav economy was denied World Bank loans. NATO, then an almost defunct Cold War relic, was reinvented as imperial enforcer. At a 1999 Kosovo “peace” conference in Rambouillet, in France, the Serbs were subjected to the enforcer’s duplicitous tactics. The Rambouillet accord included a secret Annex B, which the US delegation inserted on the last day. This demanded the military occupation of the whole of Yugoslavia—a country with bitter memories of the Nazi occupation—and the implementation of a “free-market economy” and the privatisation of all government assets. No sovereign state could sign this. Punishment followed swiftly; NATO bombs fell on a defenceless country. It was the precursor to the catastrophes in Afghanistan and Iraq, Syria and Libya, and Ukraine.

Since 1945, more than a third of the membership of the United Nations—69 countries—have suffered some or all of the following at the hands of America’s modern fascism. They have been invaded, their governments overthrown, their popular movements suppressed, their elections subverted, their people bombed and their economies stripped of all protection, their societies subjected to a crippling siege known as “sanctions”. The British historian Mark Curtis estimates the death toll in the millions. In every case, a BIG LIE was deployed.

“Tonight, for the first time since 9/11, our combat mission in Afghanistan is over.” These were opening words of Obama’s 2015 State of the Union address. In fact, some 10,000 troops and 20,000 military contractors (mercenaries) remain in Afghanistan on indefinite assignment. “The longest war in American history is coming to a responsible conclusion,” said Obama. In fact, more civilians were killed in Afghanistan in 2014 than in any year since the UN took records. The majority have been killed—civilians and soldiers—during Obama’s time as president.

The tragedy of Afghanistan rivals the epic crime in Indochina. In his lauded and much quoted book, The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives, Zbigniew Brzezinski, the godfather of US policies from Afghanistan to the present day, writes that if America is to control Eurasia and dominate the world, it cannot sustain a popular democracy, because “the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion . . . Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilisation.” He is right. As WikiLeaks and Edward Snowden have revealed, a surveillance and police state is usurping democracy. In 1976, Brzezinski, then President Carter’s National Security Advisor, demonstrated his point by dealing a death blow to Afghanistan’s first and only democracy. Who knows this vital history?

In the 1960s, a popular revolution swept Afghanistan, the poorest country on earth, eventually overthrowing the vestiges of the aristocratic regime in 1978. The People’s Democratic Party of Afghanistan (PDPA) formed a government and declared a reform programme that included the abolition of feudalism, freedom for all religions, equal rights for women and social justice for the ethnic minorities. More than 13,000 political prisoners were freed and police files publicly burned.

The new government introduced free medical care for the poorest; peonage was abolished, a mass literacy programme was launched. For women, the gains were unheard of. By the late 1980s, half the university students were women, and women made up almost half of Afghanistan’s doctors, a third of civil servants and the majority of teachers.

 

“Every girl,” recalled Saira Noorani, a female surgeon, “could go to high school and university. We could go where we wanted and wear what we liked. We used to go to cafes and the cinema to see the latest Indian film on a Friday and listen to the latest music. It all started to go wrong when the mujahidin started winning. They used to kill teachers and burn schools. We were terrified. It was funny and sad to think these were the people the West supported.”

The PDPA government was backed by the Soviet Union, even though, as former Secretary of State Cyrus Vance later admitted, “there was no evidence of any Soviet complicity [in the revolution].” Alarmed by the growing confidence of liberation movements throughout the world, Brzezinski decided that if Afghanistan was to succeed under the PDPA, its independence and progress would offer the “threat of a promising example”.

On July 3, 1979, the White House secretly authorised $500 million in arms and logistics to support tribal “fundamentalist” groups known as the mujahidin. The aim was the overthrow of Afghanistan’s first secular, reformist government. In August 1979, the US embassy in Kabul reported that “the United States’ larger interests . . . would be served by the demise of [the PDPA government], despite whatever setbacks this might mean for future social and economic reforms in Afghanistan.” The italics are mine.

The mujahidin were the forebears of al-Qaeda and Islamic State. They included Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, who received tens of millions of dollars in cash from the CIA. Hekmatyar’s specialty was trafficking in opium and throwing acid in the faces of women who refused to wear the veil. Invited to London, he was lauded by Prime Minister Thatcher as a “freedom fighter”.

Such fanatics might have remained in their tribal world had Brzezinski not launched an international movement to promote Islamic fundamentalism in Central Asia and so undermine secular political liberation and “destabilise” the Soviet Union, creating, as he wrote in his autobiography, “a few stirred up Muslims.” His grand plan coincided with the ambitions of the Pakistani dictator, General Zia ul-Haq, to dominate the region. In 1986, the CIA and Pakistan’s intelligence agency, the ISI, began to recruit people from around the world to join the Afghan jihad. The Saudi multi-millionaire Osama bin Laden was one of them. Operatives who would eventually join the Taliban and al-Qaeda, were recruited at an Islamic college in Brooklyn, New York, and given paramilitary training at a CIA camp in Virginia. This was called “Operation Cyclone.” Its success was celebrated in 1996 when the last PDPA president of Afghanistan, Mohammed Najibullah—who had gone before the UN General Assembly to plead for help—was hanged from a streetlight by the Taliban.

The “blowback” of Operation Cyclone and its “few stirred up Muslims” was September 11, 2001. Operation Cyclone became the “war on terror,” in which countless men, women and children would lose their lives across the Muslim world, from Afghanistan to Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria. The enforcer’s message was and remains: “You are with us or against us.”

The common thread in fascism, past and present, is mass murder. The American invasion of Vietnam had its “free fire zones”, “body counts” and “collateral damage.” In the province of Quang Ngai, where I reported from, many thousands of civilians (“gooks”) were murdered by the US; yet only one massacre, at My Lai, is remembered. In Laos and Cambodia, the greatest aerial bombardment in history produced an epoch of terror marked today by the spectacle of joined-up bomb craters which, from the air, resemble monstrous necklaces. The bombing gave Cambodia its own ISIS, led by Pol Pot.

Today, the world’s greatest single campaign of terror entails the execution of entire families, guests at weddings, mourners at funerals. These are Obama’s victims. According to the New York Times, Obama makes his selection from a CIA “kill list” presented to him every Tuesday in the White House Situation Room. He then decides, without a shred of legal justification, who will live and who will die. His execution weapon is the Hellfire missile carried by a pilotless aircraft known as a drone; these roast their victims and festoon the area with their remains. Each “hit” is registered on a faraway console screen as a “bugsplat”.

“For goose-steppers,” wrote the historian Norman Pollock, “substitute the seemingly more innocuous militarisation of the total culture. And for the bombastic leader, we have the reformer manqué, blithely at work, planning and executing assassination, smiling all the while.”

Two-faces ObamaUniting fascism old and new is the cult of superiority. “I believe in American exceptionalism with every fibre of my being,” said Obama, evoking declarations of national fetishism from the 1930s. As the historian Alfred W. McCoy has pointed out, it was the Hitler devotee, Carl Schmitt, who said, “The sovereign is he who decides the exception.” This sums up Americanism, the world’s dominant ideology. That it remains unrecognised as a predatory ideology is the achievement of an equally unrecognised brainwashing. Insidious, undeclared, presented wittily as enlightenment on the march, its conceit insinuates western culture.

I grew up on a cinematic diet of American glory, almost all of it a distortion. I had no idea that it was the Red Army that had destroyed most of the Nazi war machine, at a cost of as many as 13 million soldiers. By contrast, US losses, including in the Pacific, were 400,000. Hollywood reversed this. [This is called ‘projection’].

The difference now is that cinema audiences are invited to wring their hands at the “tragedy” of American psychopaths having to kill people in distant places—just as the President himself kills them. The embodiment of Hollywood’s violence, the actor and director Clint Eastwood, was nominated for an Oscar this year for his movie, American Sniper, which is about a licensed murderer and nutcase. The New York Times described it as a “patriotic, pro-family picture which broke all attendance records in its opening days”.

There are no heroic movies about America’s embrace of fascism. During the Second World War, America (and Britain) went to war against Greeks who had fought heroically against Nazism and were resisting the rise of Greek fascism. In 1967, the CIA helped bring to power a fascist military junta in Athens—as it did in Brazil and most of Latin America. Germans and east Europeans who had colluded with Nazi aggression and crimes against humanity were given safe haven in the US; many were pampered and their talents rewarded. Wernher von Braun was the “father” of both the Nazi V-2 terror bomb and the US space programme.

In the 1990s, as former Soviet republics, Eastern Europe and the Balkans became military outposts of NATO, the heirs to a Nazi movement in Ukraine were given their opportunity. Responsible for the deaths of thousands of Jews, Poles and Russians during the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union, Ukrainian fascism was rehabilitated and its “new wave” hailed by the enforcer as “nationalists”.

This reached its apogee in 2014 when the Obama administration splashed out $5 billion on a coup against the elected government. The shock troops were neo-Nazis known as the Right Sector and Svoboda. Their leaders include Oleh Tyahnybok, who has called for a purge of the “Moscow-Jewish mafia” and “other scum,” including gays, feminists and those on the political left.

These fascists are now integrated into the Kiev coup government. The first deputy speaker of the Ukrainian parliament, Andriy Parubiy, a leader of the governing party, is co-founder of Svoboda. On February 14, Parubiy announced he was flying to Washington get “the USA to give us highly precise modern weaponry.” If he succeeds, it will be seen as an act of war by Russia.

No western leader has spoken up about the revival of fascism in the heart of Europe—with the exception of Vladimir Putin, whose people lost 22 million to a Nazi invasion that came through the borderland of Ukraine. At the recent Munich Security Conference, Obama’s Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Victoria Nuland, ranted abuse about European leaders for opposing the US arming of the Kiev regime. She referred to the German Defence Minister as “the minister for defeatism.” It was Nuland who masterminded the coup in Kiev. The wife of Robert D. Kagan, a leading “neo-con” luminary and co-founder of the extreme right wing Project for a New American Century, she was foreign policy advisor to Dick Cheney.

Nuland’s coup did not go to plan. NATO was prevented from seizing Russia’s historic, legitimate, warm-water naval base in Crimea. The mostly Russian population of Crimea—illegally annexed to Ukraine by Nikita Khrushchev in 1954—voted overwhelmingly to return to Russia, as they had done in the 1990s. The referendum was voluntary, popular and internationally observed. There was no invasion.

At the same time, the Kiev regime turned on the ethnic Russian population in the east with the ferocity of ethnic cleaning. Deploying neo-Nazi militias in the manner of the Waffen-SS, they bombed and laid to siege cities and towns. They used mass starvation as a weapon, cutting off electricity, freezing bank accounts, stopping social security and pensions. More than a million refugees fled across the border into Russia. In the western media, they became unpeople escaping “the violence” caused by the “Russian invasion.” The NATO commander, General Breedlove—whose name and actions might have been inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove—announced that 40,000 Russian troops were “massing.” In the age of forensic satellite evidence, he offered none.

These Russian-speaking and bilingual people of Ukraine—a third of the population—have long sought a federation that reflects the country’s ethnic diversity and is both autonomous and independent of Moscow. Most are not “separatists” but citizens who want to live securely in their homeland and oppose the power grab in Kiev. Their revolt and establishment of autonomous “states” are a reaction to Kiev’s attacks on them. Little of this has been explained to western audiences.

On May 2, 2014, in Odessa, 41 ethnic Russians were burned alive in the trade union headquarters with police standing by. The Right Sector leader Dmytro Yarosh hailed the massacre as “another bright day in our national history.” In the American and British media, this was reported as a “murky tragedy” resulting from “clashes” between “nationalists” (neo-Nazis) and “separatists” (people collecting signatures for a referendum on a federal Ukraine).

The New York Times buried the story, having dismissed as Russian propaganda warnings about the fascist and anti-Semitic policies of Washington’s new clients. The Wall Street Journal damned the victims—“Deadly Ukraine Fire Likely Sparked by Rebels, Government Says.” Obama congratulated the junta for its “restraint”.

If Putin can be provoked into coming to their aid, his pre-ordained “pariah” role in the West will justify the LIE that Russia is invading Ukraine. On January 29, Ukraine’s top military commander, General Viktor Muzhenko, almost inadvertently dismissed the very basis for US and EU sanctions on Russia when he told a news conference emphatically: “The Ukrainian army is not fighting with the regular units of the Russian Army.” There were “individual citizens” who were members of “illegal armed groups,” but there was no Russian invasion. This was not news. Vadym Prystaiko, Kiev’s Deputy Foreign Minister, has called for “full scale war” with nuclear-armed Russia.

On February 21, US Senator James Inhofe, a Republican from Oklahoma, introduced a bill that would authorise American arms for the Kiev regime. In his Senate presentation, Inhofe used photographs he claimed were of Russian troops crossing into Ukraine, which have long been exposed as fakes. It was reminiscent of Ronald Reagan’s fake pictures of a Soviet installation in Nicaragua, and Colin Powell’s fake evidence to the UN of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

The intensity of the smear campaign against Russia and the portrayal of its president as a pantomime villain is unlike anything I have known as a reporter. Robert Parry, one of America’s most distinguished investigative journalists, who revealed the Iran-Contra scandal, wrote recently,

“No European government, since Adolf Hitler’s Germany, has seen fit to dispatch Nazi storm troopers to wage war on a domestic population, but the Kiev regime has and has done so knowingly. Yet across the West’s media/political spectrum, there has been a studious effort to cover up this reality even to the point of ignoring facts that have been well established . . . If you wonder how the world could stumble into world war three—much as it did into world war one a century ago—all you need to do is look at the madness over Ukraine that has proved impervious to facts or reason.”

In 1946, the Nuremberg Tribunal prosecutor said of the German media:

“The use made by Nazi conspirators of psychological warfare is well known. Before each major aggression, with some few exceptions based on expediency, they initiated a press campaign calculated to weaken their victims and to prepare the German people psychologically for the attack . . . . In the propaganda system of the Hitler State it was the daily press and the radio that were the most important weapons.”

In the Guardian on February 2, Timothy Garton-Ash called, in effect, for a world war. “Putin must be stopped,” said the headline. “And sometimes only guns can stop guns.” He conceded that the threat of war might “nourish a Russian paranoia of encirclement”; but that was fine. He name-checked the military equipment needed for the job and advised his readers that “America has the best kit”.

In 2003, Garton-Ash, an Oxford professor, repeated the propaganda that led to the slaughter in Iraq. Saddam Hussein, he wrote, “has, as [Colin] Powell documented, stockpiled large quantities of horrifying chemical and biological weapons, and is hiding what remains of them. He is still trying to get nuclear ones.” He lauded Blair as a “Gladstonian, Christian liberal interventionist”. In 2006, he wrote, “Now we face the next big test of the West after Iraq: Iran.”

The outbursts—or as Garton-Ash prefers, his “tortured liberal ambivalence”—are not untypical of those in the transatlantic liberal elite who have struck a Faustian deal. The war criminal Blair is their lost leader. The Guardian, in which Garton-Ash’s piece appeared, published a full-page advertisement for an American Stealth bomber. On a menacing image of the Lockheed Martin monster were the words: “The F-35. GREAT For Britain.” This American “kit” will cost British taxpayers £1.3 billion, its F-model predecessors having slaughtered across the world. In tune with its advertiser, a Guardian editorial has demanded an increase in military spending.

Once again, there is serious purpose. The rulers of the world want Ukraine not only as a missile base; they want its economy. Kiev’s new Finance Minister, Nataliwe Jaresko, is a former senior US State Department official in charge of US overseas “investment.” She was hurriedly given Ukrainian citizenship.

They want Ukraine for its abundant gas; Vice President Joe Biden’s son is on the board of Ukraine’s biggest oil, gas and fracking company. The manufacturers of GM seeds, companies such as the infamous Monsanto, want Ukraine’s rich farming soil.

Above all, they want Ukraine’s mighty neighbour, Russia. They want to Balkanise or dismember Russia and exploit the greatest source of natural gas on earth. As the Arctic ice melts, they want control of the Arctic Ocean and its energy riches, and Russia’s long Arctic land border. Their man in Moscow used to be Boris Yeltsin, a drunk, who handed his country’s economy to the West. His successor, Putin, has re-established Russia as a sovereign nation; that is his crime.

The responsibility of the rest of us is clear. It is to identify and expose the reckless LIES of warmongers [i.e. the ‘Allies’, US and NATO] and never to collude with them. It is to re-awaken the great popular movements that brought a fragile civilisation to modern imperial states. Most important, it is to prevent the conquest of ourselves: our minds, our humanity, our self respect. If we remain silent, victory over us is assured, and a (real) holocaust beckons.


You should be concerned about Your Hopeless Future

By John Kaminski © all rights reserved

Concern yourself with the fact that there are no presidential candidates presently known who are willing to tell you the truth about our present condition, our recent past, or the dire forecast for our immediate future. And as usual, there is no shortage of willing liars queued up for this jackpot job who are eager to continue the cynical policies that have destroyed our country and are now enthusiastically aimed at busting up and enslaving the rest of the world, and generally shortening everyone’s lifespan.

All these presidential pretenders represent an elite class of simpering sycophants conspiring to exploit and if necessary eliminate the vast majority of the population in order to receive a vast reward of riches from the criminals who have stolen the wealth of the world.

What this means is that we can expect that none of our present problems will ever be solved because all the candidates deemed eligible to be our next president are incubated by the same criminals who have created the difficulties that confront us today. All of them are on the record as vowing to continue the same suicidal policies based on historical misrepresentations that have created our present dilemmas, which are more or less listed here in their probable order of importance.

1. The imposition of hopelessness. How long has it been since an average citizen could take a complaint to the government and, without a colossal bribe, receive just and concerned treatment? How long has it been since we could point out a terrible wrong perceived by everyone and have it redressed by our elected leaders? (OK, maybe that right never existed, but if so, we have never actually had a responsive republic).

The population is paralyzed about what to do to neutralize the cabal that has imprisoned the world mind in a jumble of insincere invective and devastating warfare.

The Freedom of Information Act is dead, and you don’t have enough money to buy what you need to know. The police are now generally regarded as our enemies and the number of innocent people wrongly killed is simply an epidemic. The crimes against the people that each president commits are always concealed by spin and the inability of the deliberately undereducated populace to distinguish fact from fiction. Suffice it to say that any president who has served during the 20th century could be charged with uncountable counts of mass murder were there a court with enough clout to indict him, but like those cops who killed your neighbor or your pet, these runaway megalomaniacs are never punished for their blatant criminality.

What candidate do you know of today with the courage to grasp the truth by the horns and get to the bottom of the 9/11 charade? By doing that, a candidate would also have to shine a spotlight on this unending series of irresponsible invasions of other countries, and admit to the American electorate that the current behavior of the USA is much worse than anything ever alleged about the evil Soviet Union or the Third Reich.

Let that sink in: what our country is doing today is much worse than anything ever attributed to Stalin or Hitler, neither of whom ever butchered large numbers of innocent people halfway around the world, in multiple countries simultaneously, as today, the USA is doing on a daily basis. This is not hyperbole; if anything, it is an understatement.

How foolish to think that any letter you could write or any petition you could sign might have any effect on these twisted narcissists whose minds are greased with millions of dollars to get them to forget that real people are being murdered in large numbers so that incomprehensibly rich men can buy larger yachts and pursue forbidden perversions that normal people would never consider doing.

2. The poisoning of our children. The final nail in the extinction of the nuclear family, which will trigger the most profound social changes in human history, is the demand by power-mad government officials to vaccinate children with inadequately tested medicines over the objections of their highly educated parents.

Disagree with the medical mafia and the feds will snatch your kids. The law has the power to kidnap children by claiming that your unvaccinated offspring threaten the health of their peers who have been inoculated, even though present day news stories seem to indicate those who receive the shots are in far greater danger of incurring lifelong diseases or even dying after bad reactions to these improperly tested concoctions that profit-oriented doctors and pharmaceutical manufacturers insist are safe, but aren’t.

In addition, the social indoctrination (and frequent kidnapping) of school children into bizarre sexual practices—often practiced by the rich and powerful who are untouchable legally—is creating a population that will betray their own families to defend the teachings of the state, thereby easing the transition toward an army of malleable human drones unable to distinguish their own healthy needs from what the soulless state commands them to do, or what manipulative social media convince them is fashionable. Pedophilia, anyone?

3. Ignorance of Jewish influence. The first two categories of concern, as well as practically all those that follow, are a result of the multifaceted Jewish takeover of all the disparate realms of society, from entertainment to medicine, from the law to religion. The melting down of the educational system into training for slaves and the knee-jerk ecumenism of the emerging one world religion are all strategies created by Jews to standardize humanity into one subclass of worker bees, controlled by an elite class of Jews that cares only for the profit it can derive from the control of everyone else.

The domination of the US government by Jews has been the downfall of the whole world, as it has been the formula for wrecking each individual country and subsuming them into a slave relationship with world banking scams and the coercive corruption that goes with it.

Jewish dominance in media and education has created a world population that thinks like Jews, looks for other people to exploit, and has completely forgotten the ancient principles of neighborliness and compassion that bring out the best in human interactions. More importantly than that, decent people not pressured by the Jewish philosophy of ripping people off produce healthy and compassionate children who seek justice and truthfulness in every act of their lives. Instead we now have addled sex and drug addicts occupying powerful offices who are totally controlled by the rich psychos who made them famous and dictate their every move.

This trend of ruthless Jewish influence has made honesty obsolete and cynical manipulation of language and deceptions of intent have become the desired traits of a totally untrustworthy populace.

The fact that each one of the major political parties in the United States is totally dominated by Jewish advisers guarantees that Americans will never again know true freedom until these parasitic and conscienceless psychopaths are banished from participating in the American political process.

From music dominated by African rhythms that foment social discord to cosmology with its false concepts that channel exploration into senseless formulas for social miseducation, the Jews have polluted all areas of human endeavor on their insane mission to either control or destroy every living organism on this planet.

The Jewish nation of Israel poses as America’s best ally in the Middle East, but it is really a succubus draining the life out of a formerly vibrant country that has turned everyone who endorses its scurrilous and demonic tenets into untrustworthy scumbags.

4. The creation of terrorists as false excuses for wars. The original story the US government floated about 9/11 was that al-Qaeda terrorists in Afghanistan hijacked four airliners to crash into American landmarks. A decade later the whole world knows Zbigniew Brzezinski invented Al-Qaeda to harass the Russians out of Afghanistan and Osama bin Laden, who also posed as a CIA agent named Tim Osman, died ten years before an American president said he was killed by Seal Team 6 in Pakistan.

Today we have the creation of a group of psychopathic killers called ISIL that is funded by the United States as the latest Islamic terror threat, but somehow it never manages to threaten Israel, only other Muslims and targets of Israeli-American terror.

Once the Soviet Union collapsed in 1989, the US had no enemy on which to squander its military expenditures, so it invented one—the perfect enemy—that it blamed for 9/11 and every other provocation it could think of throughout the world. Although these permutations of a magical terror group keep popping up all over the world, they always seem to serve the purposes of the Western powers, first as a convenient patsy to take the blame for some false flag atrocity, then as convenient allies to overthrow some foreign leader who refuses to suck up to the American mass murderers.

Currently these fabricated terror groups are issuing blatant threats about various venues in the United States, so it is logical to expect further terror attacks conducted by secret agents of the US government on the false flag formula of 9/11, Sandy Hook, and the Boston Marathon Massacre in order to impose new totalitarian restrictions on the brain damaged American public.

5. The blatant theft of the private banking system and the crashing of the currency. Jewish bankers took complete control of the US Treasury in 1913, and ever since the world has been wracked by depressions followed by wars in an endless cycle of carnage and deception that shows no signs of ending.

Reading about how Nelson Rockefeller ran every US president from Herbert Hoover to Gerry Ford and every change in monetary policy was aimed at further fleecing the US population, it’s easy to regard all of American history as an evil progression toward bankruptcy and starvation.

The American economy actually died in 2007 but rather than admit defeat, the Federal Reserve just kept printing money. It has taken eight long years for the rest of the world to realize it, and when they do, Americans will learn the hardest lesson of all, as the Indians did, about trusting a government that speaks with forked tongue.

6. Medical falsehoods that kill rather than cure. We pretty much know that all these new exotic diseases they tell us about are not natural occurrences. From the bird flu to ebola, they are all deliberately demonic concoctions developed in some government lab tailored to facilitate population “control,” especially in Africa.

The same situation pertains with the creation of new medicines, as the revelations about cancer in the polio vaccines attest. Today we have these Frankenstein concoctions such as Gardasil sabotaging the fertility of future generations and substances like statins robbing the public of billions and actually increasing the risk of heart attacks.

Needless operations like coronary bypasses and fake cures like chemotherapy and radiation are stressed while genuinely healthful maneuvers such as vitamins C, E, and hemp oil are discouraged all make us ask the question “are doctors really here to kill us” much like the firemen in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 were employed to start fires and not put them out?

When you rely on mainstream medical opinions, you put your life at risk, which is the same situation with mainstream news and mainstream politics. The general principles used by mainstream anything have become utterly cannibalistic, and the deterioration of the world in general, both environmentally and interpersonally, reflects this disgusting lack of integrity.

Among other reasons to be concerned about your hopeless future, sorry I had to leave out nuclear war started in eastern Ukraine, mass poisoning of the population caused by Monsanto’s glyphosate, massive cancers from leaking US nuclear plants, and several other such potentially fatal items as chemtrails and electromagnetic pollution.

But if you REALLY want to be concerned about your hopeless future, try to comprehend this.

7. Rumors of an imminent apocalypse. I don’t know whether they say all these things to keep us depressed and demoralized, but an awful lot of people believe a giant methane bomb is going to come hurtling out of the Arctic Ocean and trigger fires all over the planet, raising the temperature so fast and so far that all the vegetation on Earth is going to dry up and blow away, resulting in the extinction of all life on Earth.

Only twenty or thirty years down the road, the leading spokesmen say. Near-term human extinction, they call it.

In fact, the hysteria over this contention has become so far advanced that the leading website of the genre, Nature Bats Last, has posted a special announcement for those who are contemplating suicide in anticipation of this social phenomenon called near-term human extinction.

No one can argue that something isn’t wrong. The weather that messed up Gulfstream, initially caused by a deliberate Gulf oil spill caused an unprecedented deluge of snow in Boston while Alaska and the Arctic region were bathed in unseasonably and disturbingly warm temperatures.

But this is a long way from saying conditions for life on this planet will no longer be available in ten to 20 years.

Extinction theory advocate Guy McPherson’s titles—“Going Dark” and “Extinction Dialogues: How to live with death in mind”—pretty much describe what he thinks about the human future, namely short and deadly. Other scientists say this devastating methane process is real but will take a lot longer, maybe a couple of hundred years. In either instance, without a much higher level of consciousness at work in the world, human activity will one day lead to human extinction.

The only occupations now open to you are prison guard, assault team member, or prostitute, and it seems that right now, this is what the American population has accepted as its fate. The one positive aspect of all this apocalyptic negativity might just be that given your inability to change the conditions of your life into something more genuinely humane, you aren’t likely to be employed at any of these jobs for very much longer.

Bummed out? Don’t just sit there and genuflect. Find your nearest elected officials who still defend the official lies of 9/11 and throw them down a flight of stairs, at the very least. Then pretend to live as if there is no tomorrow, because on one tomorrow very soon, there very likely might not be one.

Comment: By grace through faith Christians are full of hope vouchsafed in this our day by the word of the vindicated Prophet William Branham whereby God has passed us “the keys of hell and of death” enabling us to escape the wrath soon to come upon the world (Revelation 1:18; Matthew 24:22). nl878.htm

Zechariah Chapter Twelve

February 25, 2015

Zechariah Chapter TwelveAndroid Phone

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 877

“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; it’s good to see you.

The virgins of Matthew 25:6 all heard Brother Branham’s midnight cry: “Behold the Bridegroom! Come out to meet Him” (I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4)! All forsook Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches, recognized him as God’s vindicated prophet and believed His Message (Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:7). But most of the virgins suffered Eve’s delusion believing God loves end-time Message believers so dearly, He won’t “surely” consign them to martyrdom. He will, as the foolish virgins are slothful and dilatory. “And the foolish said to the wise, give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, No, lest there be not enough for us and you: but go to them that sell [VOG Recordings] and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the Bridegroom came. That was fifty-two years ago and still they are “buying the letter without the Spirit.” Soon “they that are ready will go in with Him to the marriage supper, and the Door will be shut”.

May I emphasize the importance of observing the example of “those noble Bereans who received the word of ministry with all readiness of mind, then searched the Scripture daily, whether those things were so” (Acts 17:11). I sometimes read a back issue of the Newsletter and find unreported spelling mistakes or grammatical errors. No one noticed a correction to a misplaced Scripture in the editorial of Newsletter 876 the Lord revealed the previous Sunday. For three years I had asked Him to provide me further Scriptural support or correction concerning Zechariah 14:3-5. I had placed this earthquake at the dispensation change, but as the editorial revealed it will occur in the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week. Our main article this week, “Zechariah Chapter Twelve,” will be fulfilled after the siege of Jerusalem and earthquake of Zechariah 14.

‘Projection’ is a defense mechanism that involves ascribing one’s own unacceptable qualities or feelings to other people.” It is commonly found in neurotic or psychotic personalities functioning at a primitive level as in narcissistic personality disorder or borderline personality disorder and who when confronted with truth and evidentiary facts imprecate threats, insults and ridicule to bring the minister of truth under submission. This technique of mind manipulation is employed universally by the enemy of innocent Islam, God and man to bring individuals and nations into submission or “dhimmitude.” When you read this article you will recognize “we are all dhimmis now” . . . but not to Muslim law.

West admits Inability to withstand Russian Military Power

February 22, 2015 — The German magazine “Focus” analyzed the statements of a number of EU and US officials most of whom acknowledged that their countries would not be able to withstand Russian military forces.

The first EU official who “shocked his country” with his statement about the strong military advantage of Russian forces was former head of Great Britain’s Royal Air Force Michael Graydon. Graydon announced that British defense forces had been ‘decimated’ and that the country would be unlikely to stand up to Russia in case of a military conflict . . . Swedish General Sverker Göranson acknowledged that his country’s military forces are “in a very poor condition.” He added that they have never been able to stand up against the “Soviet Union or Russia” without military support from other countries.

NATO Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, Philip Breedlove, also raised questions about the ability of the alliance to “appropriately respond” to potential large-scale military threats. He questioned NATO’s flexibility and ability to quickly respond to emerging threats, highlighting his lack of confidence in NATO’s efficiency . . . Chief Former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen also doubted Europe’s capabilities to withstand Russia . . . US General Ben Hodges told the Wall Street Journal earlier this month that Russia possesses high-level military equipment and is further strengthening its capacity, while military capabilities of western countries have fallen considerably behind.

Comment: Three fronts for Russia: Washington will fan the flames of chaos in Central Asia. But the belligerent USA can never win another war and will be defeated and briefly occupied in the ‘hot stage’ of the present World War III it is forcing upon Russia, Iran, Syria, and humanity in service to the Money Power of her master, the City of London. Imagine how weak the United States and her vassals will be after Los Angeles sinks.


IMF to Ukraine: Deadly ‘Economic Medicine’ aimed at Total Destabilization

500 hryvn note

February 17, 2015 — Looking at Ukraine as a part of the present geopolitical struggle, one can see that the IMF’s new loans to Ukraine, announced by Christine Lagarde, [Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund], are anything but a ‘turning point’ signaling the country’s stabilization. They will lead to unspeakable human suffering and contribute to the trail of blood which Ms Lagarde and the IMF are so used to leaving behind after intervening under the pretext of ‘helping’ countries in times of trouble . . .

In pursuing this strategy, the IMF is totally in line with the geopolitical policies pursued by Wall Street and the government in Washington. Both are in deep trouble, with the US torn apart by ever-increasing social inequality threatening to explode in massive social unrest, while its rulers are drowning in debt and losing control over the world financial system. Having dominated global markets for seven decades, the United States’ economic decline and a shift in global power are ringing in the end of the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency and thereby heralding the end of the US’s status as the world’s super power.

In a reckless attempt to stop this unstoppable process, Wall Street and the White House are waging an extremely aggressive campaign against Russia and China who have dared to complete an energy deal outside the petro-dollar and whom the US fear to be preparing a new, possibly gold-backed, currency that might replace the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency. To prevent this from happening and to gain control of the vast natural riches of Russia which promise enormous profits, Wall Street and the White House are pursuing a strategy of regime change in Moscow, undertaking everything possible to replace the Russian government by one that is as subservient to US interests as that of Ukrainian premier Yatseniuk and his investment banker cronies in Kiev. One of the means to this end is the integration of Ukraine into NATO in order to step up the military threat against Russia. However, as the EU—and Germany in particular—do not seem to be willing to join forces in an all-out war against Russia (not out of humanitarian considerations, but because of their dependency on Russian gas and oil and their anticipation of a new monetary world order no longer dominated by the US) and as the majority of Americans, despite a massive media campaign demonizing Vladimir Putin, are unwilling to support a war that would cost more money and more lives than any war in the past and could end up in a nuclear catastrophe, the US government’s and the IMF’s main purpose in Ukraine is to deepen and widen the already existing economic, social and ethnic conflicts . . . to force Vladimir Putin into a long-lasting and costly war that will weaken his position at home and eventually pave the way for the installation of new rulers . . .

Obama’s Fake War – ISIS is protected by the US and its Allies

obama puppet

February 19, 2015 — Since August 2014, the US Air Force with the support of a coalition of 19 countries has relentlessly waged an intensified air campaign against Syria and Iraq allegedly targeting the Islamic State brigades. According to Defense News, over 16,000 airstrikes were carried out from August 2014 to mid January 2015. Sixty percent of the air strikes were conducted by the US Air Force using advanced jet fighter and bombing capabilities (Aaron Mehta, “A-10 Performing 11 Percent of Anti-ISIS Sorties“. Defense News, January 19, 2015).

The airstrikes have been casually described by the media as part of a “soft” counter-terrorism operation, rather than an act of all out war directed against Syria and Iraq . . . Americans are led to believe that the Islamic State constitutes a formidable force confronting the US military and threatening Western Civilization . . . From the very outset, this air campaign has NOT been directed against ISIS. The evidence confirms that the Islamic State is not the target. Quite the opposite. The air raids are intended to destroy the economic infrastructure of Iraq and Syria . . .

The counter-terrorism mandate is a fiction. America is the Number One ‘State Sponsor of Terrorism.’ The Islamic State is not only protected by the US and its allies, it is trained and financed by US-NATO, with the support of Israel and Washington’s Persian Gulf allies.

Comment: In his address to Hezbollah on February 16, 2015 Secretary General Nasrallah said:

The [ISIS] threat was in Syria. Now it is in Syria and Iraq. It also reached Libya. Also in Sinaa they say that Ansar Beit Al Maqdes has pledged allegiance to Daesh or something of this sort. Similar things are taking place in other places too. Today in Tunisia, there is a state of full mobilization. In Yemen, a branch of al-Qaeda had pledged allegiance to the Daesh Caliph and is proceeding and occupying camps in southern provinces in the country.

. . . They are slaughtering and killing . . . They are producing true films. It is absolutely sure that their mind, spirit, and brutality come from Hollywood. This is the culture of Hollywood . . . [from non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jewry]. Is there anything other than killing and slaughtering? Is this from here, from the Orient, from Islam, from Christianity, from prophets . . . God forbids. It is not from any of these.

The origin of what we are seeing now before our eyes on TV screens is clear. In face of this danger which is threatening everyone, we call on the peoples and the governments of the region to join efforts to confront this vast, dangerous, terrorist Takfiri threat [of apostate Muslims who excommunicate other Muslims whom they accuse as apostates by violence under the guise of jihad or holy war as though God is impotent and unable to manage His affairs]. I reiterate that we are all able to defeat this threat as well as to defeat those standing behind it whether the “Israeli” Mossad, the Americans or the English . . . Thus the nation, the peoples of the nation, the governments, the scholars, the political parties, the resisting forces, and the armies are all concerned in confronting this threat which is the most dangerous threat except for the “Israeli” threat . . . Through Daesh alone, America [like once Jew-ruled Russia] is robbing our oil and our wealth . . . America is exhausting us as well as our armies, peoples, states, and nerves. Through Daesh, [Jew-ruled] America is planting grudges and enmities which might not end in decades. It is ruining the entire region for its interest and for the interest of keeping “Israel” powerful, prominent, and protected.

Why is America in a hurry? In best cases, if America finds out that it wants to get rid of Daesh, it can still do that slowly and later on when the American presidential elections approach. So why should it get rid of Daesh now? When the American presidential elections are due, they would make several moves and hit Daesh so that the Democratic Party wins. So the knife of Daesh must remain on our neck—we the Iraqis, the Syrians, the Lebanese whom Daesh is at their borders in Qalamoun, Irsal barren mountains, the Egyptians, the Libyans, the Tunisians, the Yemenis, and all the peoples of the region—until the American presidential elections approach to know whether the Americans want to make any move in this perspective.

Iraqi Army downs Two UK Planes carrying Weapons for ISIL

February 23, 2015 — “. . . both planes that are British and have crashed while they were carrying weapons for the ISIL,” Head of the committee Hakem al-Zameli said, . . . US-led coalition planes that airdrop weapons and supplies for ISIL in terrorist-held areas . . . the US prefers a chaotic situation in Anbar Province which is near the cities of Karbala and Baghdad as it does not want the ISIL crisis to come to an end . . .

“We have discovered weapons made in the US, European countries and Israel from the areas liberated from ISIL’s control in Al-Baqdadi region,” . . . anti-ISIL coalition’s planes have dropped weapons and foodstuff for the ISIL in Salahuddin, Al-Anbar and Diyala provinces . . . the coalition is the main cause of ISIL’s survival in Iraq . . . they have the technological power to determine the presence of ISIL gunmen and destroy them in one month” . . . the coalition’s precise airstrikes are launched only in those areas where the Kurdish Pishmarga forces are present, while military strikes in other regions are not so much precise . . .

“The US and the so-called anti-ISIL coalition claim that they have launched a campaign against this terrorist and criminal group—while supplying them with weapons, food and medicine in Jalawla region (a town in Diyala Governorate, Iraq). This explicitly displays the falsity of the coalition’s and the US’ claims,” Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri . . . insisted that the US had the necessary intelligence about ISIL’s deployment in the region and that their claims to have mistakenly airdropped weapons to them are as unlikely as they are untrue.

Iraqi Forces seize US-made Weapons from ISIL in Anbar Province

February 23, 2015 — A senior Iraqi provincial official lashed out at the western countries and their regional allies for supporting Takfiri terrorists in Iraq, revealing that US and Israeli-made weapons have been discovered from the areas purged of ISIL terrorists . . . US planes have dropped advanced weaponry, including anti-aircraft weapons, for the ISIL, and that it has set up an investigation committee to probe into the matter . . .

“The international coalition is not serious about air strikes on ISIL terrorists and is even seeking to take out the popular (voluntary) forces from the battlefield against the Takfiris so that the problem with ISIL remains unsolved . . . ISIL terrorists are still receiving aids from unidentified fighter jets in Iraq and Syria,” . . . the coalition’s precise airstrikes are launched only in those areas where the Kurdish Pishmarga forces are present, while military strikes in other regions are not so much precise . . .

Iranian Major General: ISIL created to reinforce Zionists

Magen David

February 23. 2015 — Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces for Logistics Major General Mostafa Izadi underlined that the Takfiri terrorist groups have been created as a result of a plot to strengthen Israel’s operational power. “The moves by the ISIL to strengthen the Zionist regime show the nature of the Takfiri current” . . . He reiterated that the main goal of the ISIL and the Takfiri current is to taint the image of genuine Islam to prevent its progress in the heart of the Europeans.

Earlier today, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi said that the US, Britain and Israel have created and supported the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group to wage a war against the Muslim states. “The phenomenon of the ISIL is a terroristic move that has been created against our neighbors in Iraq, Syria and other Muslim countries by Zionism, Britain and the US . . . He noted that the arrogant powers are using the ISIL because of its extremely violent behavior to achieve their goals.

Last month, Lieutenant Commander of the IRGC Quds Force Brigadier General Esmayeel Qaani underlined Tehran’s continued logistical support and military advice to Baghdad and Damascus in their campaign against terrorist groups. “This (Quds force’s assistance) is not a military presence (in Iraq or Syria), but it is military counseling that has persuaded resistance forces in Iraq and Syria to be determined in their fights against extremists and terrorists,” the Iranian commander said.

The Malhama (Armageddon) Draws Closer

September 16, 2014 — Islamic eschatologist Sheikh Imran Hosein lifts the veil on the Serpent’s seed and very lucidly explains the situation in Ukraine, the reasons for the fall of the Russian Empire and the role of Jews in the organization and conduct of the Bolshevik Revolution.

He explains, Jewish agents of the City of London, Gorbachev and the drunken traitor Yeltsin, betrayed Russia according to the Talmudic strategy toward Jewish global hegemony via the Harvard Project and Houston Projects (Google translate). Exposing Jewish rule over the Western (once) Christian world he sees the current rulers of Russia as wise and patriotic people. This URL demonstrates that the governments and people of the once Christian world are not free but pawns of the City of London and its ‘think tanks’.

Trail of the SerpentUS air strikes against ISIS in Syria seem to have been coordinated with the Ukraine ceasefire, as a smoke-screen hiding an effort to get even with Russia over a NATO black-eye received in Ukraine. If the US can get away with such air strikes—and that appears very likely—then the strikes will escalate until NATO takes on the Syrian armed forces in a final effort to achieve a Libyan-style regime-change in Syria. There should be no illusion concerning implications of an ISIS take-over of Syria.

Our commentary echoes the words of Jewish Jesuit Malachi Martin (sometimes writing under the pseudonym Michael Serafian) and served as secretary to Jewish Cardinal Augustin Bea during preparations for Vatican II. Mohammed prophesied that Muslims would enter into an End-Time alliance with Rome].

Secondly, while the Russian government may be able to get away with a policy of avoidance of nuclear war with NATO over Syria, public opinion in Russia will not tolerate such a policy in response to a slaughter of Orthodox Christians in Syria.

The ultimate implication of such a success in Syria is that NATO will then get what the Zionists desperately want, i.e., nuclear war with Russia. It now seems inevitable that such a nuclear war will take place and that it will occur sooner rather than later. When that war takes place within the next 5-10 years time or even sooner, the world will experience the Malhama or Armageddon . . . Our Islamic eschatological view is that Pax Judaica is not possible without such a nuclear war which, it is hoped, will wipe out both Russia and her NATO rivals. Our view is that Dajjal’s ‘day-like-a-week’ [referring to the rise of the Satan-incarnate antichrist or “beast” and the end of Daniel’s Seventieth Week and the perception that time is moving faster. Jesus the Son of Mary would descend from the sky with his hands resting on the wings of two angels (Zechariah 14:4-5; Matthew 17:1-3; 24:31; Acts 1:9-22) and kill Dajjal the False Messiah or Anti-Christ; this] will commence with the Malhama when Israel emerges from the nuclear holocaust to succeed USA as the ruling State in a post-nuclear world.

Britain and Canada involved in Foiled US Venezuelan Coup Plot

February 16, 2015 — TeleSUR provided detailed coverage of Washington’s war on Venezuelan democracy . . . US funded and supported key opposition fascist figures Antonio Ledezma, Maria Corina Machado and Leopoldo Lopez released a joint February 11 communique a day before the foiled coup. Titled “A Call on Venezuelans for a National Accord for the Transition,” it promoted regime change. Called for Venezuela to be handed back to monied interests. Called Bolivarian fairness “anti-democra(tic) . . . inefficient and . . . corrupt.” Run by “an unscrupulous elite (making) the State totalitarian.” Creating “a humanitarian crisis” . . .

Ledezma, Marhado and Lopez want Maduro’s government violently overthrown, democracy crushed. Washington, Britain and Canada hatched the latest plot to return Venezuela to its bad old days. TeleSUR reported new details . . .

Venezuelan authorities identified US embassy personnel involved. So were a Royal Canadian Mounted Police official and UK diplomatic corp member, according to National Assembly President Diosdado Cabello. They sought information on airport capabilities in case needed in an emergency. Computers seized had detailed coup plans, including maps showing targets to be bombed. A video showed military officials announcing Maduro’s government was no longer recognized. It was scheduled to be aired after planned bombings were launched. Either by a Venezuelan or Miami TV station . . . US planned, funded, implemented and directed economic, political, and street warfare continues to topple the hemisphere’s most vibrant democracy . . .

Rare Amateur 9/11 Footage with Audio not shown on TV

WTC

February 13, 2015 — This footage starts shortly after the alleged planes hit the WTC. The filmographer (Richard A. Siegel) captures all three buildings as they collapse across the Hudson. There are no political or whodunit overtones. There are no conspiracies injected into the story. You have a good view with solid audio from a guy standing on a pier surrounded by those whose loved ones are trapped in the buildings. It was not aired on any network news program. It contains lots of bomb detonation sounds and smoke . . . Full story: youtube.com

Comment: It is patent all three buildings were planned demolitions. This is very important new evidence.


Dhimmitude is Brainwashing

brain

Historically, the term Dhimmi describes a “non-Muslim under protection of Muslim law”  (The Oxford Dictionary of Islam). As conquered people under Islamic domination in their own lands, Jizyah tax must be paid by the dhimmis as a sign of submission (according to the Qur’an and hadith). Thereafter they may retain their religious beliefs under certain restrictions and given some legal protection in a subservient status.

Dhimmitude is a state of insecurity requiring submission to psychological humiliation characterized by victims siding with their oppressors; the moral justification of the victim supports his oppressors’ evil behaviour. A dhimmi loses the possibility of revolt because revolt arises from a sense of injustice and he loathes himself in order to praise his oppressors (Dr. M. L. Goel, Professor Emeritus of Political Science, University of West Florida). The fact dhimmitude is a global phenomenon imposed upon everyone unawares, including Muslims, by Islam’s archenemies may be difficult to accept, so I will give some examples to illustrate the presence of dhimmitude in our society.

First I invite you to read the following testimony recorded by attorney Horst Mahler imprisoned for speaking truth in court. Thereafter I shall cite examples by which you will recognize how your mind, too, has been brainwashed, manipulated and brought under submission by this psychological weapon dhimminitude.

Soul Murder of the German People

By Attorney Horst Mahler

 

February 25, 2009 — The peculiarity of my life story is that I went into Politics in quite furious ways, all the way to the Red Army faction that had prescribed itself to the concept of an armed fight against this system, generally speaking. What moved us to take this path was our belief in the Holocaust. We believed what was said, what we were taught in school about the German people, or rather its history under the National Socialist government. What they taught us in school, and what they disseminated in the media is what I had internalized. I was looking for a way to break out of this guilt complex . . . I believed in the Holocaust, and was one day . . . confronted with the question whether I, as a lawyer and defense attorney, would represent a German, named Stefan Reinecke, who was accused of Holocaust denial and charged. And, of course, when as a lawyer I am asked this [by a defendant], naturally, I will say: “Yes, I will defend you.” Then it became necessary to engage myself intensely to discover the facts and alleged evidence for this occurrence that we call Holocaust. And I found out there is no evidence. There is only a statement that it happened. And I found out that the claim was examined sufficiently and that no other historical phenomena were examined more thoroughly than this Holocaust claim. It’s a flat out lie! So when the Bundesgerichtshof (Federal Court of Germany) says there are thousands of witnesses who claim there was a Holocaust, then this is a lie . . .

That which Bishop Richard Williams told me is exactly what I have noticed: ‘I went from believing in the Holocaust into a situation where I had to deal with the evidence. I found out that there is no evidence available.’ There are several court cases that have taken place, also the writing of a Professor of History, Jackschitz in Vienna, who had exactly the same experience. He also said, ‘Well, everyone knows about it, and I made the assumption it would be very easy to bring this to the court who had asked him to provide the information that the Holocaust is a historical event. Then he worked on it for three years with this court order to examine the issue. He researched all the literature and after three years he wrote to the courts stating that the original assertion [that the Holocaust exists] can no longer be held up. He came expressly to the conclusion, according to his knowledge, that it is now no longer lawful to apply the precedents of existing case law as the basis for a conviction in court and to sustain a claim that the Holocaust is obvious.

It is all about applying self-defense. As a German, I and the German people as a whole are in a situation where not only do we have the right to practice self-defense, we are obligated to it. We as people in the center of Europe with the cultural substance that is within us, have the duty to resist their efforts to murder our SOUL, to destroy our spiritual being and with that to wipe us out. THIS IS WHAT THIS IS ABOUT. I am not waiting for others to do this, I do it myself. I speak the truth the way truth reveals itself to me. And this truth is: THERE WAS NO HOLOCAUST, THEREFORE WE CANNOT FIND ANY EVIDENCE. THERE IS ONLY THAT WHICH IS HAMMERED INTO OUR HEADS BY THE JEWISH MEDIA, AND THEIR ASSERTION THAT THERE WAS A HOLOCAUST, AND THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF PROOFS, AND HE WHO ACCEPTS THIS WITHOUT EXAMINING IT HIMSELF, IS COMMITTING A CRIME AGAINST THE GERMAN PEOPLE.

The first ones to mention as criminals are the uppermost judges [often Jews] that make all the decisions for the lower courts and force the basis that the Holocaust is obvious [meaning it does not need to be proven by the courts]. It’s not only bending the law, but it’s the tool for soul murder of the German people. The Red Robes in Karlsruhe are guilty of this x-times. I will say it again and again—and as I am in custody—I have about 12 years of incarceration before me—and what the result of this will be—I am 73 years old—this is as life sentence—and this is exactly their practice: In Germany there is practically a life-sentence for anyone who does not subjugate himself to the lie. [Dhimmitude]. Jews of course make us an offer, that by subjugation to the lie we have an opportunity not to have to face any more difficulties with the law—and the goal of our enemies otherwise (is to give us a life sentence—because after people come out, they accuse them of old statements from years before and put them back in jail—this goes on indefinitely. People need to know that when the court accuses a person of Holocaust denial there is no defense whatsoever. And the court does not have to prove the Holocaust to the defendant, just say: “The Holocaust exists because it is said!” this is communist germany!) . . . [Apparently the 1985-1988 Zündel trial was the last Revisionist trial where matters of fact were openly canvassed as part of the evidentiary process. Certainly none of our evidence was received].

But he who feels and is convinced that his life is not worth living if he subjugates himself to the lie disappears for life behind bars, and because I have often said these things publicly with the knowledge that their bat will come swinging at me, they will find ways to put me away for the rest of my life. It had to be shown [to the public] that they really do this. The Germans are in a situation where they can rot in jail for life if they do not subjugate themselves to the lie. AND HERE I SAY, WHATEVER MAY HAPPEN TO US, I CAN SAY THIS IN THE NAME JESUS CHRIST: “WHOEVER DOES NOT TAKE UP THEIR CROSS AND FOLLOW ME, IS NOT WORTHY OF ME” (Matthew 10:38) . . .

Comment: We have all been brought into dhimmitude under submission to the BIG LIES and myths of the extermination of six million Jews by Germany in World War I, six million Jews exterminated by Germany in World War II, and six million Jews exterminated between the wars by the Jewish-ruled USSR; the ridiculous myth that 19 Arab hijackers and CIA employee Osama bin Laden planned and executed 9/11; that aeroplanes flew into the WTC and Pentagon; the BIG LIE concerning President Saddam Hussein’s WMD; that BIG LIE that so-called Jews are related to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob by flesh or faith, or are even Semitic; the cowardly deception Muslims were involved in 9/11; the BIG LIE that Hitler was a rogue; the lie that “white man” brought slaves to the United States; the blasphemy of trinitarianism; the pagan dogmas of Easter and Christmas; political correctness [hypocrisy]; the false flag, black ops against Malaysia and Russia, bombings and shootings in Westfield and Marriott properties worldwide; the BIG LIE of global warming and climate change; impoverishment by ‘free trade’, genocidal globalization; universal glorification of homosexuality and multiculturalism which are accursed of God; War on the abstract noun “terrorism” that was planned, incited, funded, armed and directed by the City of London and vassal states of her Empire.

Under Vatican and Talmudic dimmitude, political Islam and political Zionism are being forced into controlled conflict for the ‘hot stage’ of World War III. So long as the world submits to the IMF, WB and BIS, supports the petrodollar US fractional reserve banking fraud, bails out commercial bank losses and obtains a licence for every aspect of life, he may hallucinate on the opiate of his false religion as a servile dhimmi in “submission” (Islam) to Judaeo-Romanism, her (once) Protestant daughters and Talmudic Judaism.


Zechariah Chapter Twelve

 

In Zechariah chapter 12 we pass from Israel’s rejection of Messiah in the previous chapter which we studied in Newsletter 876, past two thousand years of the Gentile dispensation, to the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week and Israel’s final deliverance and salvation. Throughout this period Judea is ruled by the “worthless or idol shepherd” of pagan Rome, papal Rome, her abominable daughter Islam, and ultimately Satan himself, cast down to Earth and incarnate in Rome’s pope with whom Jewry will covenant when he restores peace following the brief ‘hot stage’ of the present World War III. Then by universal acclaim he will be declared president of one world government (Daniel 7:8-11; 8:9-27; 9:27; 11:35-38). Modern Israel has been restored in a condition of unbelief as foretold in Isaiah 1, much as it was at the time of Christ’s first advent when the threads of God’s dealings with Israel were finally dropped, not to be taken up “until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled” and our silver thread of grace is severed. Israel’s “Sodom of strangers [Serpent’s seed, Heb. ‘zuwr,’ impersonate the kinsmen of Abraham, Isaac and Israel], devour and plunder all they see,” and Jesus prophesied that from now to the consummation, Jerusalem will be “deemed spiritually as Sodom and Egypt” (Luke 17:28-30; Revelation 11:8). Bypassing the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week, Zechariah 12 prophesies the great siege, Israel’s national conversion (Zechariah 12:10 – 13:9; Romans 11:25-32) and God’s wonderful deliverance of David’s City.

Only when they were in the greatest straits did Joseph make himself known to his brethren, and when Jerusalem is in its dire extremity that memorable scene in the ancient land of the pyramids will be reproduced in all its pathos. Then their long despised and rejected one will say to His own after the flesh, “I am Jesus, your Brother whom you sold to Pilate. Do not grieve or be angry with yourselves because you delivered Me to be crucified for God sent Me before you to preserve a remnant in the earth and to save you by a great deliverance” (Genesis 45:1-15; Zechariah 13:6-9).

Zechariah 12:1-8 introduces us to the prophet’s second burden (or threatening prediction) from the Lord that will distress Israel prior to her complete deliverance. “The burden of the Word of the Lord concerning Israel: Thus says the Lord, who stretches forth the heavens, and lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a bowl of reeling to all the peoples round about, when they are in the siege against Judah and against Jerusalem. In that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all peoples: all who lift it will be severely injured; and all peoples of the earth will come together against it”.

In order to assuage doubt and build faith as to the fulfillment of the prophecy, the Lord reminds Israel that He is not an absentee landlord but the ever-present Sustainer of His creation, daily stretching forth the heavens and laying the foundations of earth, which, were it not upheld by His almighty power, it would wander from its orbit into ruin (Colossians 1:16-17). And as He formed our mortal spirit there are no restraints upon His ability continuously to mold the thoughts and intents of the heart in order to accomplish His purposes through men.

All the nations of earth will gather against Judah in the siege of Jerusalem. And the country of Judah like her capital will be a bowl of reeling God administers to the invaders and the burden will overcome and rupture them politically as one who has overrated his own strength in lifting a stone too heavy for him suffers injury. Israel will “fall” on Messiah, the Rock of offense, and be “broken” with contrition but that Rock will fall on Jerusalem’s foes—“all peoples, all the nations of the earth”—the United Nations—and “grind them to powder” (Matthew 21:24; Daniel 2:44-45).

“In that day, says the Lord, I will smite every horse with bewilderment, and his rider with madness. But upon the house of Judah I will open My eyes, when I smite every horse of the Gentiles with blindness. Then the clans of Judah shall say to themselves, the inhabitants of Jerusalem have found strength in the Lord of hosts, their God. On that day will I make them like a hearth of fire among the faggots, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they will devour to the right and to the left all the peoples round about, while Jerusalem stands unmoved. And the Lord will give victory to the tents of [the poor rural folk of] Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the [mansions of the] inhabitants of Jerusalem may not be exalted over that of Judah”.

Whereas from Calvary and throughout the Six Trumpet Judgments during the Gentile dispensation God appeared to close His eyes to Israel’s welfare and “smite her with insanity, and blindness, and bewilderment” (Deuteronomy 28:28), He now opens wide His eyes upon the house of Judah to see and provide for her needs while He smites her foes with precisely the same three plagues so that they will destroy themselves (II Kings 6:18; Zechariah 14:12-13; Revelation 3:17-20) “in that day . . . when they shall be in the siege against Judah and against Jerusalem”.

The tribal chiefs of the 144,000 find strength in the faith of their brethren who have remained in Jerusalem in the surety that as Israelites “it shall come to pass that all who call upon the Name of the Lord [in the appointed way] shall be delivered: for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord has said, and those who are saved will be those whom the Lord has called” (Zechariah 12:5-6; Joel 2:32; Deuteronomy 16:2, 16; Psalm 14:7; Obadiah 17-21; Romans 8:30). The repulse of the foe from the metropolis shall assure Judah that the Most High who dwells in Jerusalem will save them also, and in consequence of this trust in the Divine election, He will consume their foes on every hand “as a torch of fire in a ripe sheaf . . . and [the 144,000 daughters of] Jerusalem will be unmoved”.

I believe that at the close of the Gentile dispensation Israel will be stripped of her military and made neutral. God chooses the weak to confound the mighty that all human glorying may be set aside; He will stand for the elect Israelites against their sworn enemy the so-called Jews. Thus because of Judah’s meek acknowledgment of dependence on Jerusalem subordinate to His right arm (12:5), the Lord first saves the tents of Judah, weak and insecure, spread over the open country in order that the fortified capital may not lift itself above the defenseless land, that both Jerusalem and Judah may acknowledge the victory is the Lord’s.

Daniel 7:8 signifies antichrist as a horn growing out of the fourth Gentile world empire and dwells on his worldly conquests as a global ruler. John and Paul describe him as “that man of sin, the son of perdition,” a spiritual tyrant called the false prophet “having a form of godliness while denying the authority of God’s Word.”

“In that day [without military might or power] the Lord will defend and exalt the inhabitants of Jerusalem to a degree of strength far exceeding anything in their past history, [terrifying and blinding the warlike forces of the enemy so that day they will fight against one another (Zechariah 14:13-14)]. Then the stumbler who can scarce hold himself up, much less attack a foe, will become a hero like David; and even David’s house shall exceed its highest fame of old, and become [superhuman] like God, like the Angel of the Lord, who once marched at the head of the armies of Israel”.

What is briefly described by one prophet is more fully prophesied by the other. God’s Covenant with natural Israel was breached when the nation crucified her Messiah on the sixty-ninth of Daniel’s Seventy Weeks on the hour, day, month and year foretold in Exodus 12:6, Nehemiah 2:1, and Daniel 9:26. That breach brought the great convulsion of nature described in Matthew 27:45-53. The Sun darkened for three hours from noon: “the earth quaked, the rocks rent; and the graves were opened and many bodies of the sleeping saints arose and left their graves after His resurrection.” This established the pattern for the terminus of the Gentile dispensation described in Joel 2:31-32, “The Sun shall be turned to darkness, and the Moon into blood, before the great and the terrible Day of the Lord. [I Thessalonians 4:16-17, “and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord”]. And it shall come to pass, that whoever calls on the Name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord has said, among the remnant [144,000 Israelites] He has called” (Isaiah 4:2; Obadiah 17; Zephaniah 1:14-18; Revelation 6:12-14). Zion will be the one place of safety for elect Israelites in the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week (Revelation 11:5-6). Joel 3:1-21 tells of the judgments that will be inflicted upon their enemies after the midst of the Week, that is, in the second half of the Week while the Lord vindicates the promises of His Word.

The purpose of this earthquake at the close of the Gentile dispensation will be to demolish the Dome of the Rock and ignite the “hot stage” of World War III in order to initiate judgment upon the Gentiles and as a means to bring the twelve Tribes of Israel back from exile, primarily from the now Muslim nations of the ancient Assyrian Empire to the land of the Covenant for their redemption. God deals with Israel as a nation, and only within the land of the Covenant—presently occupied by “strangers,” the self-styled non-Semitic Jews. In addition to gathering genuine Israelites of the blood of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Lord will also gather all nations, and bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for harming My people and My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations. They have parted My land and divided My people as their slaves, traded a boy for a harlot, and sold a maiden for wine that they might drink”.

The First Committee of the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine (UNSCOP), on which each of the then fifty-five members of the United Nations was represented, held twelve meetings from May 6 to May 13, 1947, using the facilities for simultaneous interpretation available at Lake Success on May 6 to decide the make-up of UNSCOP that would determine the future of Palestine [UN docs. A/C.l/P.V.46-57 (May 6-13, 1947)]. The upshot of those meetings was that “all nations [the United Nations] . . . have parted My land” (Joel 3:1-3) in partitioning Palestine and will part it when UN Resolution 181 of 1947 is enforced following World War III (Daniel 11:39; Zechariah 14:2).

Brother Branham said, “If you want to see what time of year it is, look on the calendar. If you want to see what time of night it is, look at the clock. If you want to see what day you’re living in, look where the Jews [he means Israelites] are. That’s God’s timepiece.”

“And look. The very night, the very day that the angel of the Lord met me, 1946 [he means 1947] on May the seventh, at Green’s Mill, Indiana, that same day the treaty of peace was signed for the Jews and they were a established nation for the first time for twenty-five hundred years. Hallelujah.”

“And tonight, the oldest flag in all the world, the six-point star of David, flies over Jerusalem for the first time in twenty-five hundred years, since the carrying away of Babylon. Jesus said, ‘When you see the fig tree putting forth its buds.’ There she is. There He said, ‘Learn a parable. You say summer’s nigh. When you see this, know that the times is at the door.’ We’re right at the end of time” (COD, p. 47:Q6).

“First, they were carried down into Egypt. Second, they were carried into Babylon, and the [times of the] Gentiles was issued in. And then, the third, they were carried or scattered by the Roman Empire, and 1947 on May the seventh, they were once more recognized among the nations of the world for the first time for twenty-five hundred years, the Jews were.”

“Notice, two thousand, yeah, twenty-five hundred years the Jews has been scattered to every nation under heaven. As God hardened Pharaoh’s heart, bringing them back, He hardened Hitler’s heart, Mussolini’s heart, and so forth, till He’s drove them back to Palestine. Coming back they have made them a nation again, and on May the sixth, 1947, the Jewish flag was raised over Israel for the first time for twenty-five hundred years. The oldest flag in the world was raised for the first time in twenty-five hundred years. And He said in the last days He’d raise up a ensign over Jerusalem, showing that the time is at hand” (Beginning and Ending of the Gentile Dispensation, p. 10:89; Isaiah 11:10-16; 18; 30; 31; Zechariah 9:16; Matthew 24:32-34).

“Now, to see whether this Message that we got is connected with it or not. The very hour that Israel was signed in to be a nation; it was the very same hour, very same day, very same month, everything else: I was at Green’s Mill, Indiana, when that Angel there appeared to me and sent me out on the field with this; after He had met me down on the river [in 1933] and told me what would take place, then commissioned me eleven years later at the same hour that Israel was signed in as a nation. It’s all connected together” (The Ten Virgins, p. 444.99).

Leviticus 26:14-31 decrees a curse on the disobedient while verses 40-45 contain a promise to the penitent: “But if they confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathers in the treason they perpetrated against Me, and walking contrary to Me, so that I walked contrary to them and brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised heart is humbled and they accept the punishment for their iniquity; then I will remember My Covenant with Jacob, My Covenant also with Isaac and My Covenant with Abraham, and I will remember the land (and its desolation). For the land shall enjoy its sabbaths while it lies desolate in their absence, and they must make amends for their iniquity because they spurned My ordinances and their souls abhorred My statutes. Yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them so as to annihilate them completely and break My Covenant with them: for I am the Lord their God. But for their sakes I will remember the Covenant with their forefathers, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I might be their God: I am the Lord”.

Note carefully the Old Covenant was exclusively with the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob whose forefathers participated in the exodus from Egyptian bondage. It specifically excludes any other people, including the Edomite descendants of Esau and the Khazars, even when they assume the more respectable Japhetic appellation of “Ashkenaz” as they had assumed the name Jew.

In 487BC Hosea 6:1-3 prophesied: “Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for He has torn, and He will heal us; He has smitten, and He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us: in the third day He will raise us up, and we will live in His sight. Then we shall know if we follow on to know the Lord: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come to us as the rain, as the latter and former rains that water the earth.” II Peter 3:8: “A thousand years is as one day with the Lord,” and as 2,015 + 487 = 2,515 years shows, we are now living “in the third day”.

“As Israel (chosen people of God) in majority forfeited their rights in the Book of Life by rejecting Jesus, so the majority of the Gentile church will also come into condemnation with the resultant removal of their names from the Book of Life by rejecting the Word and thereby entering into the world ecumenical movement which is the image erected unto the beast”  (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 274:2).

Soon the Mighty Judge will summons the Gentile nations to war so that He can take recompense in Israel’s behalf, fulfill His promise to the penitent and deliver His dread decision in the metaphorical “Valley of Jehoshaphat” (II Chronicles 20). The imagery is furnished by the great deliverance God gave Jehoshaphat, when the forces of Ammon, Moab, and Edom came against Him; his name means “Jehovah has judged”; the king appealed to God who turned their swords against one another as is also prophesied for this coming battle (Ezekiel 38:21-23; Haggai 2:6, 20-23; Zechariah 14:12-15). Here the Lord will “plead” against the Gentiles to charge them with the crimes of scattering His people and treating them with the greatest contempt throughout the history of His servant nation. The word implies the nations will argue their own cause in an attempt to justify themselves, but of course they have no ground on which to stand.

This is looking at the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week, when God calls Israel “My people, and My heritage Israel” whereas for two thousand five hundred years the Northern kingdom was “Lo-ammi, not My people, and I will not be your God. [Hence the folly of British Israel/Christian Identity theology—a Jewish HOAX perpetrated by cabbalist John Dee and Rabbi Menasseh ben Israel—is manifest (II Timothy 3:9)]. But when the children of Judah and the children of Israel are gathered together [from exile to the Land of the Covenant (Jeremiah 3:18) following the invasion at the start of Daniel’s Seventieth Week from which the self-styled Jews will flee], and appoint themselves one Head [Jesus Christ the Son of David in the second half of the Seventieth Week] He will say to them: You are the sons of the living God” (Hosea 1:9-11; Isaiah 11:11-16). This brings us to the earthquake of Zechariah 14:3-8, Revelation 11:13-14, 12:15-16, Ezekiel 38:20 and Haggai 2:6, “the time of Jacob’s trouble” and the fulfillment of Zechariah 12:9-14 following the martyrdom of the two witnesses of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 when Israel will recognize Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ coming (Jeremiah 30:1 – 31:40). Zechariah’s description of the brave gallantry of the Israelites is a metaphor for the confidence of their new-found faith in Jehovah rather than valiant prowess in physical warfare, for the battle will be the Lord’s.

Most people in the circle of this Message believe that following Calvary only half a week of Daniel’s Seventy Weeks remained outstanding, but as shown on the diagram, this cannot be the case. Rather there remain three and a half years wherein the New Covenant ministered to Israel by John the Baptist and Jesus will be confirmed by two Israelite prophets, and a further three and a half years thereafter.

Zechariah 12:9-14 “And on that day, [when the 144,000 are born-again spiritual supermen as prophesied in verses 1-8] I will seek to destroy all nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour out upon the house of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and supplication, so when they look on Me whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps for a firstborn”.

In this passage no thought is given to the coming conflict, or victory, no reeling bowl for the Gentiles, no torch among the sheaves, no march of a hero at the head of conquering hosts. On the contrary, all is subjective, subdued, inwardly and outwardly spiritual. Israel is seen at the end of the world standing alone in her relation to Him whom they rejected, and meditating upon the character of their great crime. One thought occupies all minds, one feeling pervades all hearts. Each tribe, family and individual separates to weep in silence and solitude over the grievous infliction.

Psalm 51:4-10, “Against You and You alone have I sinned, committing deicide in Your sight so that Your sentence against me is just and blameless in judgment (Revelation 15:2-4). But I was born in iniquity and in sin my mother conceived me. Surely You desire truth in my inward being; therefore teach me this wisdom. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. And after You have chastised me, cause me to hear joy and gladness, so that the bones which You have broken may rejoice. Hide Your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a steadfast spirit in me”.

Zechariah 12:11, “In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.” This refers to the lamentation over King Josiah who was mortally wounded “in the valley of Megiddo”  (II Chronicles 35). He is introduced as a type of Messiah because he was slain on account of the sins of the Judahites; his reign was the closing manifestation of mercy on the part of God; unspeakable misery came upon the Judahites immediately afterwards as it has since Calvary under the Trumpet judgments; and the lamentation for his death rested upon the mingled feelings of love, and of sorrow for their own sins as the cause of his death.

This will be Israel’s Day of Atonement when they afflict their souls in mourning for their murder of Messiah (Leviticus 23:27-32). “On that day I will set Myself with determined earnestness to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem”.

Brother Branham deals with these verses in An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages (p. 36-42) where He speaks of the coming God, Jesus Christ:

Revelation 1:7, “Behold, He comes with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also who pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen”.

He is coming. Jesus is coming. God is coming. The Prophet is coming. The Priest and King is coming. The ALL in ALL is coming. Even so, Lord Jesus, come quickly. Amen.

photograph of sign of Christ's 'parousia' Coming February 28, 1963He is coming. He is coming in clouds, clouds of glory as when He was seen upon the Mount of Transfiguration, [that is, in the Shekinah (Matthew 24:3; 30-31) as in our sign of His imminent parousia seen over Arizona on February 28, 1963 and featured on the index page of our Church Website], and His garments were shining as the power of God enfolded Him. And EVERY eye shall see Him. That means this is not the Rapture [or translation]. This is when He comes to take over His rightful place as World Ruler (Zechariah 14:9). This is when those who have pierced Him with their denominational creeds and doctrines shall mourn, and all the people shall wail in terror because of Him who is the Word. [This is not the physical (Gk. ‘erchomai’) return of the glorified Jesus, for His precious feet will not touch this earth until He returns with the glorified saints of all Ages to step out on the atomic ashes of the wicked for the millennium (Isaiah 13:9; 51:6; Daniel 2:44; Malachi 4:1-3). On that day there will be no survivors on earth to “see” His return (Nahum 1:5; Zephaniah 3:8). This will be the revelation of His (Gk. ‘parousia’) Coming to Israel in W_O_R_D form by the Message of the two witnesses of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 after their martyrdom by Rome.

Zechariah 12:10, “And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for His firstborn”.

John 19:33-37, “When the soldiers came to Jesus, and saw that He was dead already, they did not break His legs: but one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and there came out blood and water. And he who saw it bore record, and his record is true: and he knows that he tells the truth, in order that you might believe. For these things were done, that the Scripture should be fulfilled, ‘A bone of Him shall not be broken’ (Exodus 12:46; Psalm 34:20). And again another Scripture said: They shall look on Him whom they pierced“.

Note the change of person in the quotation—from “Me whom” for “Him whom.” In Zechariah it is Messiah who is speaking of Himself, while in John’s Gospel the evangelist is speaking of Messiah. Note also that although the Roman soldier thrust his spear into our Lord’s side, in both the Old and New Testaments God holds Jewry guilty (Matthew 27:25; Revelation 1:7).

There was a preliminary mourning at the crucifixion. Luke 23:46-48, “When Jesus had cried with a loud voice, He said, Father, into Your hands I commend My spirit: and having said this, He gave up the ghost. Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God, saying: Certainly this was a righteous man. And all the multitudes who assembled to see the sight, when they saw what had taken place, returned home striking their breasts.” But the real fulfillment began when the multitudes of Israelites and proselytes at Pentecost were “pricked in their heart” (Acts 2:37).

As I have said, this is not the visual (Gk. ‘optomai’) sighting of the glorified Man but of the sign of Christ’s Presence (or Gk. ‘parousia’) Coming by faith signified by the Shekinah that will appear over the Mount of Olives in the near future (Matthew 24:3, 23-31; Acts 1:6-11).

Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel will be the revelation of His invisible arrival and subsequent Presence with His elect in W_O_R_D form. Throughout the Seven Church Ages the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals, and because the saints had only PART-Word, Christ was a Mediator for their ignorance of the whole. The revelation of the mystery of the Seven Seals in 1963 brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form through the spoken Word of William Branham His prophet, for Christ is the fullness of the Word].

Brother Branham continues, “This is the revelation story of Zechariah 12:9-14. Zechariah prophesied this about 2,500 years ago. It is just about to take place. Listen. “And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced. . .” Now, when is the Gospel returning to Israel? When the day of the Gentiles is finished. The Gospel is ready to go back to the Hebrews. Oh, if I could just tell you something that is about to happen right in this our day. This great thing that is about to happen will carry over to Revelation 11 and pick up those two witnesses, those two prophets, Moses and Elijah, turning the Gospel back to the Hebrews. [That “great thing” is Christ’s parousia in Israel’s former or teaching rain under the ministry of their two prophets, and the latter or harvest rain to the Gentile Bride]. We’re ready for it. Everything is in order. [In the same manner] as the Hebrews brought the Message to the Gentiles, even so the Gentiles will take it right back to the Hebrews, and the Rapture [or resurrection and translation] will come.

[As the born-again Hebrews brought the Message to us through the ministry of the prophet Paul in a time of apostasy and persecution, the Message will return to Israel through a prophetic ministry in a time of apostasy and persecution].

Now, remember what we have read in Revelation and Zechariah. Both come right after the tribulation. [Brother Branham is speaking of the birth of Israel in one day in the second three and a half years of Daniel’s Seventieth week]. The Church of the First-born does not go through the tribulation. We know that. The Bible teaches that.

At that time it says that God is going to pour out His Spirit upon the house of Israel. It is the same Spirit that was poured upon the Gentiles in their day. [By the former or teaching rain: “Faith comes by hearing and understanding the revealed Word for your day,” making your life a written epistle of that part of the Word]. “And they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and they shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his first-born. In that day there will be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadad-rimmon in the valley of Megiddon. And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart . . .” and each one of the houses apart when He comes in clouds of glory at His Second Coming. [This will be the fulfillment of the second purpose of Gabriel’s sixfold instructions to Daniel regarding his Seventieth Week: “To make an end of sin,” or unbelief in the revealed Word of God—Daniel 9:24.

A still more elaborate description of the mourning is given in verses 12-14. Not only the capital but the whole land shall mourn; every family and each individual will mourn intensely by personal revelation, and the wives will mourn apart before the Lord. Four families are enumerated, David and Nathan from the royal line, and Levi and Shimei from the priestly line, one leading family and one subordinate branch to show that the grief pervades all, from the highest to the lowest. And all that remain after the fiery ordeal of Zechariah 13:8-9 in which two-thirds of the nation will fall and the remaining third is tried to separate the elect (Malachi 3:2-6), proving this penitential grief has not been in vain].

Those Jews that pierced Him shall see Him as it says in chapter 13, “Whence did You get those wounds?” and He will say, “In the house of My friends.” [This will be the fulfillment of the third purpose of Gabriel’s sixfold instructions to Daniel regarding his Seventieth Week: “To make reconciliation for iniquity,” or doing what you know is wrong—Daniel 9:24.

Amos 8:2-3, 7-10 says, “The end is come upon My people of Israel; I will pass him by no more. And the songs of the temple shall be howlings. In that day, says the Lord God: there shall be many corpses every place; they shall cast them out in silence. . . . The Lord has sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works. Will the land not quake for this, and every dweller therein mourn? It will heave and sink like the rise and fall of the Nile. And it shall come to pass in that day, says the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in a clear day: [this is not an eclipse but a catastrophe that will subvert the order of nature]: and I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness on every head [as a sign of mourning]; and I will make it like the mourning for an only son, and the end of it like a bitter day”.

Amos 9:9-12, describes how, by its dispersion Israel comes, as it were, into a sieve, in which the good corn and the dust and dirt are tossed up together. Yet this is only in order to make a speedy separation, and the good grain remains. In Amos 2:5 we see the same judgment that destroys Israel is executed against Judah but without dissolving its national existence. “All the sinners of My people shall die by the sword, who say, The evil shall not overtake nor reach us. In that day will I raise up the hut of the Davidic monarchy that is fallen down, and close up its breaches and restore its prostrate ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: that they may possess (Genesis 27:37; Numbers 24:18) the remnant of [Adamic] Edom, and of all the heathen who are called by My Name, says the Lord that does this”.

In that dayGod will so vindicate His honor by judgments so that none else “shall be exalted” (Isaiah 2:11-20; Zechariah 14:9). Suffering shall lead to repentance (Isaiah 19:17-22) when Christ reveals Himself to Israel by His visible parousia—the only means whereby their obstinate unbelief will be overcome (Psalms 102:16; Isaiah 52:1-6; Zechariah 12:10; 14:5).

Zechariah 13:1, In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the House of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.” This verse resumes and completes the process began in Zechariah 12:10 and treats the same parties: “the House of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem,” standing for the whole nation. He who poured out the spirit of supplication will also provide the means of purification from sin. A fountain is shut up so long as it remains underground, sealed from access (Songs 4:12); it is opened when it breaks forth and flows freely. The reference appears to be drawn from the sprinkling of the Levites with water at their consecration for purification from sin (Numbers 8:7), and the sprinkling of persons contaminated by contact with death, with the water prepared from the ashes of the red heifer, which removed uncleanness. In both these cases the impurity denoted the defilement of sin, and like the laying on of hands the outward purification was a symbol of the inward work. So the water which flows from the fountain is a water of sprinkling by which sin and uncleanness are removed. It need not be renewed from time to time, as was the case with the Levitical waters, but issues from a living wellspring. The water represents the blood which cleanses from all sin (I John 1:7), the blood of that Sacrifice which was typified in the sin-offering of the red heifer, the blood that removes guilt and the dominion of sin, a shadow and type of the blood of Christ which released the Spirit].

Not only will it be a mournful time for the Hebrews who rejected Him as Messiah, but it will be a mournful time for those left of the Gentiles who have rejected Him as the Savior of this day.

There’ll be weeping and wailing. The sleeping virgins will be wailing. They represent the church that refused to get oil (symbol of the Holy Spirit) in their lamps (symbol of the body or holder of the oil) until it was too late. It wasn’t that they were not good people. They were virgins and that signifies a high moral order. But they didn’t have oil in their lamps so they were cast out where there was wailing and gnashing of teeth. . .”

“The Bride will be taken off the earth. She will be caught up before the great tribulation to meet her Lord in the air. For three and one-half years while the retributive wrath of God is poured out, she will be in the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Then will He return [in W_O_R_D form by revelation of the Message of two prophets], leaving His Bride in “His Father’s house,” while He makes Himself known to His brethren. [This will be Christ’s parousia Coming in the office of Son of man to regenerate the 144,000 elect Israelites in one day. Since Revelation 12:7-12 is in parenthesis describing the spiritual battle that ensues following Satan’s expulsion from the heavenly realm, and verse 12 refers to the Third Woe and its devastating impact that will ultimately cause the consummation of life on land and sea (Revelation 8:13; 10:6), verses 13-17 should be read from Revelation 12:6. When Satan is cast down to earth he will persecute the whole house of Israel who return “into their place” in the Land of the Covenant at this time where they will be nourished Spiritually for three and a half years through the ministry of two Hebrew prophets. “And if any man wants to harm them, Fire issues from their mouths, and consumes their enemies: should anyone wish to injure them, he must be killed in this way.” At the end of their ministry Rome will break her covenant with the international Jews (Revelation 11:5-7; 17:16-17; Daniel 9:27<seals, 175:1=””>].

At this very time, the antichrist covenant that the Jews have made with Rome will be broken. Rome and her allies then send their troops [“as a flood”] to destroy all the God-fearing, Word-abiding Jews [Israelites (Revelation 12:15)]. But as they come against the city to destroy it, there will appear in the heavens the sign of the Coming of the Son of Man with His mighty armies to destroy them who have been destroying the earth (Zechariah 14:4; Revelation 11:18). With the enemy repulsed . . .

William Branham[How is “the enemy repulsed”? In Israel, he will be repulsed by an earthquake coinciding with the visible physical resurrection of Israel’s two prophets. “And the earthquake helped the woman [Israel’s elect] by swallowing seven thousand soldiers the Devil-incarnate pope had sent to destroy her. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, that keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” Then Rome will begin to force the mark of the beast and 144,000 will flee to the cleft of the Rock (Revelation 11:7-13; 12:15-17). The Jews’ international banksters will side with Judaeo-Communist Russia they created and financed at the cost of US and British taxpayers, and Russia will bomb Vatican City State and mainland USA. This was precisely what the United States and the Vatican planned for Russia in 1960 as “first aggressor for peace” (Avro Manhattan, The Dollar and the Vatican, p. 79-90). The deaths of Stalin and Pope Pius XII postponed their strategy, which has since been reactivated under the Bush I and II, Clinton I and Obama administrations as “preemptive war” veiled behind “the war against terror” in which the terrorists are us! The Russian bombing will fulfill the seventh of seven consecutive visions shown to Brother Branham in 1933.

Daniel 12:1-9 is a variant of the vision that appeared on Mount Transfiguration (Matthew 17:1-8). Here we see Moses on the Old Testament side of Jesus Christ standing upon the River of Life with Elijah on the New Testament side. Christ explains that after three and a half years their revelation of the erstwhile sealed Seven Trumpet mysteries will be complete and themselves martyred. This agrees with what Christ revealed to us in Revelation 12:7-17 and 13:1-9.

Returning to the start of Daniel’s Seventieth Week the earthquake of Revelation 6:12, 8:5 and 16:18 will destroy the Dome of the Rock at the dispensation change, and the Jews will immediately restore Israel’s animal sacrifices and build a new abomination of desolation on the Temple site (Revelation 11:1-3; 13:4-18). Daniel 12:10-13 informs us that Rome will ban the animal sacrifices, and provides us with a timeline for the outcome of the prophetic ministry in the new birth of the elect Israelites who “endure unto the end” . . . after the midst of the Week (Matthew 24:13; Revelation 13:10)].

“With the enemy repulsed, Jesus comes and presents Himself to the 144,000. Having seen His mighty acts of salvation, they have come to know His power. But also seeing His wounds and knowing that they had rejected Him even to that moment, causes them to cry out in the agony of terror and fear, even as did their brethren of old when they stood before Joseph, being sore afraid that they would be killed. But as Joseph said, “Don’t be angry with yourselves. It is all right. God was in it all. He did it to preserve life.” Even so will Jesus speak peace and love to them.

Why did the Jews reject Jesus? God was in it all. It was the only way that He could bring out the Gentile Bride. He died on the cross to preserve the life of the Gentile Church.

Now these 144,000 are not in the Bride. In Revelation 14:4 they are called virgins and they follow the Lamb wherever He goes. The fact that they have not defiled themselves with women shows that they are eunuchs (Matthew 19:12). The eunuchs were the keepers of the bridal chambers. They were attendants. Notice that they do not sit in the throne but are before the throne. No, they are not in the Bride, but will be in the glorious millennial reign.

[Israel is God’s servant nation, not Messiah’s Bride. These 144,000 elect cannot be in Christ’s Bride as the marriage, our new birth, occurs during the Gentile dispensation, and “Israel is blinded until the Gentile dispensation is fulfilled” (Romans 11:25). There are individual Israelites in Christ’s Bride, but Israel will be born as a nation in one day—all 144,000 of them, another flaw in British Israel/Christian Identity theology].

We then see that when these last of Israel have been joined in love to the Lord, and the enemy has been destroyed [in the battle of Armageddon], God will prepare His holy mountain, His new Garden of Eden for the Bride and His and her attendants [the 144,000 elect Israelites] for the thousand year honeymoon upon the earth. As Adam and Eve were in the garden and did not finish out the thousand years, now Jesus our last Adam and His Eve (True Church) will fulfill all the plan of God.

Oh, how the Bible repeats itself. The scene of Joseph and his brethren is about to be repeated, for Jesus is coming [to Israel] soon . . . there is one more thing I want to bring to your attention about this end time. You recall that as Joseph stood before his brethren when Benjamin was not with them he spoke through an interpreter though he knew the Hebrew well. He spoke to his brethren in another tongue. Did you know that the first Gentile Age (the head of gold, Babylonian Age) went out with a Message in tongues written on a wall? This age is going out the same way. The abundance of tongues in this day is a further proof that the “times of the Gentiles” is [about] over and God is turning back to Israel.

He is coming soon. The Alpha and Omega, the Prophet, Priest and King, the All in All, Lord God of Hosts, is coming soon. Even so Lord Jesus, the One and Only True God, come quickly”! nl877.htm

Zechariah Chapters Ten and Eleven

Zechariah Chapters Ten and ElevenAndroid Phone

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 876

“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 appreciate your company in God’s unchanging Word.

Scripture does not play with words. Since the Garden of Eden each Message was sent for God’s elect. Whatever is in the Record is there for the anointed eyes to see. You who have received anointed eyes by God’s grace will see Scriptures unfolding according to prophecy in our news. As the Prophet foretold, the world is falling apart; not of its own volition but by the sedition of wicked men who proclaim Christ when they are antichrists whose sin has severed the invisible bond of God’s Word by which all things are held together (Colossians 1:17).

Our main article, “Zechariah Chapters Ten and Eleven” continues from “Zechariah Chapter Nine,” and stretches over the period between the fall of the Persian World Empire, beyond the Grecian World Empire to the appearance of Jesus Messiah under the Roman World Empire that rules us today. Chapter Eleven describes how when Messiah would have joined Judah and Israel in the bonds of common faith and common laws, He broke “His Covenant which He had made with all the people [of Israel]” in just retribution when as a nation they renounced Him (Matthew 27:22-25). God deals with Israel as a nation in the Land of the Covenant (Isaiah 66:8), us Gentiles as individuals wherever we might be. Once He “hacked” the staves even General Titus could not save the Temple from his own Roman soldiery.

Any who believe that Daniel’s Seventieth Week is fulfilled “are wise in their own conceits for Israel is blinded spiritually until the last Gentile is baptized into Christ, completing the Church” (Luke 21:24; Romans 11:25). The Old Covenant was broken after Messiah’s betrayal (Zechariah 11). Israel will enter the New Covenant by revelation of the Message of their martyred prophets (Zechariah 4; Matthew 24:31; Revelation 11) in the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week when they mourn the atonement their forefathers rejected (Zechariah 12-13) after Zechariah 14:3-8 (Ezekiel 47:1-5; An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 260; Joel 3:18). As “all Israel” betrayed Messiah to death at the hands of Rome, “all Israel” is under “condemnation” and must make recompense “life for life” according to their Law which suspends the curse over the nation because of their sin in Sinai (Matthew 23:39; Romans 8:1-2; Revelation 6:11).

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.

Complaint against John Howard to the International Criminal Court

January 11, 2015 — Australia’s former Prime Minister John Howard has been accused of war crimes before the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

man of SteelA document titled Complaint against John Howard to the International Criminal Court has been sent to The AIMN by a member of the SEARCH Foundation—an on-line copy of the document can be found here. Permission has been given by one of the authors to reproduce the document, but due to its length (75 pages) we have reproduced a summary . . .

The Accused’s criminal policy and practice could be characterised as an “act of aggression”, the “supreme international crime” as early defined by the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg” (hereafter IMT), and thus in violation of the United Nations Charter’s Art. 2 (3) which prescribes the use of peaceful means to settle international disputes between Members, Art.2 (4) which proscribes the use of force against sovereign states, Art. 33 which sets down the duty to exhaust peaceful settlement of disputes and Art. 39 which states that the power to determine threats to peace or acts of aggression rests with the Security Council. [ANNEX 26]

The Accused knew or was in a position to know that no chemical, biological or nuclear weapons of mass destruction had been found in Iraq.

The Accused had no legal justification to participate in the “coalition of the willing” in a war against Iraq under Security Council Resolution 1441, because that Resolution could not “reasonably be interpreted [as the Davids Commission found] as authorising individual member states to use military force against Iraq to comply with the Security Council’s Resolutions”. . .

Pravda: ‘Putin threatens to release Satellite Evidence of 9/11?’

President Putin

February 14, 2015 — The transparent US Government complicity in the coordination and coverup of the 9/11 crimes against its own citizenry has now been proven—UNEQUIVOCALLY—by mountains of scientific, circumstantial and anecdotal evidence. Only because the Mainstream Media has relentlessly covered up this crime against humanity, for well over 13 years and counting, have the successive administrations been free from prosecution (stateofthenation2012.com).

This video alleges ‘Charlie Hebdo’ Police Commissioner Helric Fredou murdered, Mossad-funded-and-controlled false flag to generate casus belle and diversion from Paris deli and other Mossad false flags on Iran, Argentina, Uraguay. Bogus “direct external threats” to USA of alleged Arab and Muslim extremism are exposed as ‘new Pearl Harbour strategy‘.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is preparing the release of Russian satellite photos and other evidence showing that 9/11 was a false-flag operation by treasonous elements of the American national security community. The original story reporting Putin’s threat was published by Pravda . . . historic photos are expected to show:

  • That none of the passenger airliners allegedly used as weapons on 9/11 actually crashed where we were told they did; and:

  • That the World Trade Center demolitions were conducted using extremely high-energy weapons.

They are primarily a deterrent—a last-ditch ace-in-the-hole whose main role is to deter and dissuade the enemy from going too far . . . the “truth bomb” will not kill anyone; and its use against the US would first and foremost harm the 9/11-complicit faction of the American power structure, while helping the non-complicit faction regain control and adjust the course of the ship of state away from the icebergs . . . Polls show that 36% of Americans (over 100 million people) think 9/11 was an inside job, while a whopping 84% or so don’t believe they are getting the full truth about 9/11 from their government. Confidence in government is at record lows, and the sickening feeling of having been lied to is largely responsible for the US military’s inability to win wars—and for the rash of troop and veteran suicides that are far more lethal than any enemy army.

Though Putin doesn’t want to play his ace in the hole, the 9/11 truth card, until he absolutely has to, the moment of truth may have finally arrived. As soon as it becomes absolutely clear that the US is never going to back off from its attempt to turn Ukraine into a hostile NATO base; that the economic war on Russia has reached a point of no return; that the neoconservative “flight forward” into World War III is inevitable . . . at that point, no sooner and no later, Putin will slap his 9/11 truth card down on the table and let the chips fall where they may . . .

The Dark Minds of the 9/11 Conspirators

February 8, 2015 — We now have the secret Able Danger Report and the AEC Sandia Labs Report which lists all the Perps responsible for planning, deploying and covering up the attack on America on 9-11-01 which was nuclear.

The 9-11-01 Perps were so frightened of this Able Danger investigation that Rumsfeld and Blackjack lured them to the special newly reinforced Naval Intel Section of the Pentagon on the morning of 9-11-01 for an emergency meeting. That part of their cover story was in a sense true, the rest was a BIG LIE used to lure them to certain assassination . . . with a cruise missile accompanied by a large conventional jet that did a flyby over the Pentagon right before to confuse witnesses.

In this Pentagon attack, 38 of the 50 Able Danger investigators were killed, and the other 15 were not there . . . some Able Danger Investigators were tracking nuclear pitts stolen out the back door at Pantex in Texas, taken to Israel to be reprocessed, brought back to America and then stored in near NYC at Fort Lee . . .

Here is a partial list of these covert ops deployed as distraction by the Perps who are Top Kingpins in the Organized Crime Cabal (OCC): The 7/7 London Bombing . . . Madrid train Bombing . . . Boston bombing . . . Sandy Hoax . . . Chris Kyle murder and movie to distract . . . ISIL/ISIS/Daish . . . Charlie Hebdo . . . ISIL/ISIS/Daish beheadings . . . some were filmed in Israeli . . . many of the ISIL wounded have been taken to Israel . . . Disneyland Measles False-Flag . . . the apparent ISIS burning alive of a captures Lebanese Pilot . . . *WZ stands for World Zionists based in the City of London who use the Israel International Zionist Crime Syndicate (IZCS) and the Bush Crime Cabal (BCC) as their main action-agents to do their dirty work . . . Full story: veteranstoday.com

Comment: “The Russian Republic . . . Secret Space War weaponry, all of it somewhat superior to everything we have” [as Brother Branham always stated].

The world has been irreversibly demoralised and brainwashed as by ‘holocaust’ propaganda, trinitarianism, 9/11, Port Arthur and other massacres and this mind manipulation cannot be reversed because such people will refuse to believe the truth (youtube.com). Much of this is done by our own race, nationality, and the Judaeo-Roman false church (Revelation 2:9; 3:9).

The alien-controlled media is complicit in 9/11: within seconds of the explosions on the WTC they began accusing Osama bin Laden. There were NO planes and no aircraft debris. There are holes in the plane stories. NO plane struck the WTC South Tower. This is what 9/11 should have looked like; report of planes is a HOAX. All four allegedly hijacked planes on 9/11 made long detours. How did the hijackers know about “radar holes”? How could they conduct key hijacking events simultaneously all within 10 minutes?

Get the Hell out of Our Country! Part V

February 6, 2015 — Every day more and more Americans are learning about how World Zionist Neo-Bolshevik Judaics have infiltrated America and hijacked most of its Institutions of Government and collaborated with Israel to attack America on 9-11-01. It’s time for We the People to do something about it!

Here are some of your alleged Perps involved in the nuclear attack on America on 9-11-01. Don’t forget about the PNAC Members either. Hopefully these men will be brought to justice; they will likely be forever shamed for what they have done. And there are more alleged Perps too, traitors in the JCS, USAF, NORAD, FAA and the Administration including Cheney, Rumsfeld, Blackjack and Bush2 and yes, allegedly some AIPAC Directors. Some in our high military command now want to bring all the 9-11-01 Perps to justice and re-open the 9-11-01 Grand Jury in Houston, Texas which has enough evidence to convict almost every Perp involved at all levels. Once they are charged many will “sing like canaries” to save themselves from execution and will expose everything we don’t already know, which now isn’t much. May the 9-11-01 Perps be forever damned and shamed for what they have done on 9-11-01, and for manipulating America into all the phony Mideast wars afterwards which has caused so much painful death and horrible human suffering in Soldiers and innocent civilians alike . . .

Truth beneath the Lies: the West finances, organizes, trains Fundamentalist Proxy Forces in its Illegal Wars

February 12, 2015 — If the governing media framed itself in terms of truth rather than government-sponsored lies, the root causes of terrorism could be addressed and rectified. Currently, the root causes are being obscured, and Police State legislation is being offered as a false solution, and for ulterior purposes. We already have the tools to combat domestic terrorism. ‘Terrorism, treason, sedition, espionage, proliferating of nuclear and biological weapons, and other offences . . .’

The answer emerges once we realize that the governing media is perpetrating the lies, distortions, and omissions offered to it by government commissioned Public Relations (PR) firms that are paid to obscure the truth and spin palatable lies . . . perfect cover for selling illegal wars and subversive agendas that create and perpetuate terrorism . . . The secular governments of Iraq, Libya, and Syria all—prior to Western invasions—opposed terrorist organizations such as al Qaeda . . . The West is currently allying itself with some of the same terror groups ‘al Qaeda/al Nusra Front, and ISIS, as it finances, organizes, and trains fundamentalist proxy forces in its illegal war against Syria. The West’s cover for invading Syria is, ironically, to wage war on ISIS, even as ISIS forces are comrades-in-arms in the sense that they share a common ‘enemy’, with the US: President Bashar Al Assad’s secular government . . .’ Full story: globalresearch.ca


Former CIA Contractor: ‘ISIS Completely Fabricated Enemy Funded by US’

August 29, 2014 — Former CIA contractor Steven Kelley says that the ISIS terrorist group is a fabricated enemy and funded by the United States. “This is a completely fabricated enemy,” he said in a phone interview with Press TV from Anaheim, California on Thursday.

“The funding is completely from the United States and its allies and for people to think that this enemy is something that needs to be attacked in Syria or Iraq is a farce because obviously this is something that we created, we control it, only now it has become convenient for us to attack this group as a legitimate enemy,” Kelley added. He made the remarks as US President Barack Obama is under pressure to seek congressional approval before expanding Washington’s military air campaign against ISIS targets from Iraq into neighboring Syria. The Pentagon has already launched at least 100 airstrikes on ISIS positions in northern Iraq since Obama authorized the use of force against the terrorist group earlier this month.

The White House insists it does not need explicit congressional authorization for those operations because they are intended to protect American personnel and interests inside the Arab country. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Monday that Obama “will not hesitate to use his authority” to keep Americans safe, but added that the president was “committed to coordinating and consulting with Congress” on a decision to hit ISIS targets in Syria.

“If you want to get to the root of the problem and remove this organization, the first thing they need to do is to remove the funding and take care of entities responsible for the creation of this group,” Kelley said.

“I believe that this ISIS group would probably go away, would be easily defeated by the armies of [Syrian President] Bashar Assad,” he said. Full story: presstv.com (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_lN1fPfBkU).

What is the Mainstream Media NOT Reporting?

February 11, 2015 — In George Orwell’s oft-quoted and insightful book 1984, we clearly see how this work of fiction has become reality, and in turn how reality is turned back into fiction through the manipulative, inaccurate and deceptive reporting of mainstream media. As Orwell accurately wrote:

‘Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to have been correct; nor was any item of news, or any expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to remain on record. All history was a palimpsest, scraped clean and reinscribed exactly as often as was necessary.’

Indeed, this is the ‘reality’ we face when we turn to mainstream news networks, a reality coloured and created through corporate interests which reflect their own agendas instead of the truth.

For example, political leaders and the mainstream media continue to explain to us that the reasons for NATO’s armed interventions here and there are to bring freedom and democracy to the subjugated masses . . .

US Military to train Kiev Troops fighting in E. Ukraine

February 11, 2015 — The US military will train Kiev troops fighting against militias in southeast Ukraine, Ben Hodges, US Army Europe commander, said hours before the start of “Normandy Four” talks dubbed a “last chance” for the peaceful resolution of the conflict.

The training, which is scheduled to kick off in March, will see a battalion of American troops training three battalions of Ukrainians, he said. “We’ll train them in security tasks, medical [tasks], how to operate in an environment where the Russians are jamming [communications] and how to protect [themselves] from Russian and rebel artillery,” Hodges was cited as saying by Reuters.

Hodges’ recent statement echoes a similar announcement he made in Kiev in January. At the time, he did not provide information on the numbers of US troops participating . . . Full story: rt.com


Is Boko Haram a CIA Covert Op to Divide and Conquer Africa?

AFRICOM

February 14, 2015 — In 2007, US State Department advisor Dr. J. Peter Pham commented on AFRICOM’s strategic objectives of ‘protecting access to hydrocarbons and other strategic resources which Africa has in abundance, a task which includes ensuring against the vulnerability of those natural riches and ensuring that no other interested third parties, such as China, India, Japan, or Russia, obtain monopolies or preferential treatment’ (globalresearch.ca).

At the beginning of February, AFRICOM’s head General David Rodriguez called for a large-scale US-led ‘counterinsurgency’ campaign against groups in West Africa during remarks at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, DC:

In similar remarks at a the US Army West Point academy last week, US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) chief General Joseph Votel said that US commando teams must prepare for new deployments against Boko Haram and the Islamic State (globalresearch.ca).

Mark P. Fancher highlighted the hypocrisy and the ‘imperialist arrogance’ of western countries, which ‘notwithstanding the universal condemnation of colonialism’, are ever more willing ‘to publicly declare (without apologies) their plans to expand and coordinate their military presence in Africa’ (globalresearch.ca) . . .

To understand why the media focuses on Boko Haram, we need to know what it is and who is behind it. What is the underlying context, what interests are being served? . . .

[Boko Haram is a CIA Covert operation – Wikileaks

In May 2014, African Renaissance News published an in-depth report on Boko Haram, wondering whether it could be another CIA covert operation to take control of Nigeria:

“[T]he greatest prize for AFRICOM and its goal to plant a PAX AMERICANA in Africa would be when it succeeds in the most strategic African country, NIGERIA. This is where the raging issue of BOKO HARAM and the widely reported prediction by the United States Intelligence Council on the disintegration of Nigeria by 2015 comes into perspective . . . In the 70’s an 80’s Nigeria assisted several African countries ‘in clear opposition and defiance to the interests of the United States and its western allies which resulted in a setback for Western initiatives in Africa at the time . . .

[R]eports provided by Wikileaks which identified the US embassy in Nigeria as a forward operating base for wide and far-reaching acts of subversion against Nigeria which include but [are] not limited to eavesdropping on Nigerian government communication, financial espionage on leading Nigerians, support and funding of subversive groups and insurgents, sponsoring of divisive propaganda among the disparate groups of Nigeria and the use of visa blackmail to induce and coerce high ranking Nigerians into acting in favour of US interests.]”

CIA logoAn investigation into Boko Haram by the Greenwhite Coalition revealed that the ‘Boko Haram campaign is a covert operation organized by the American Central Intelligence Agency, CIA and coordinated by the American Embassy in Nigeria.’ The US has used its embassy for covert operations before . . . The one in Benghazi was proven to be a base for a covert gun-running operation to arm the mercenaries fighting against Bashar Al-Assad in Syria. As for the embassy in Ukraine, a video from November 2013 emerged recently showing a Ukrainian parliamentarian exposing it as the central point of yet another clandestine operation designed to foment civil unrest and overthrow the democratically-elected government.

The Greenwhite Coalition report on Boko Haram reveals a three stage plan of the National Intelligence Council of the United States to ‘Pakistanize’ Nigeria, internationalize the crisis and divide the country under a UN mandate and occupying force. The plan ‘predicts’ Nigeria’s disintegration for 2015 . . .

As covertly supporting terrorist organizations to achieve foreign policy aims appears to be the commanding prerequisite of foreign policy operations under the Obama Administration, Boko Haram exists as a separate arm of the US destabilization apparatus, aimed at shattering Africa’s most populous nation and biggest potential market (globalresearch.ca) . . .

. . . a Nigerian soldier in Borno state confirmed that Boko Haram attacked Gamboru Ngala in their presence but their commander asked them not to repel the attack . . . The soldier said that the Boko Haram insurgency will end when superior officers in the army cease to fuel it . . . At the abductions of Chibok girls . . . we were ordered to arrest vehicles carrying the girls but just as we started the mission, another order was issued that we should pull back . . .

Boko Haram and Islamic State, have been, in one way or another, armed, trained and financed by the US-NATO alliance and their allies in the Middle East . . . Thanks to the covert support of Western countries, arms dealers and bankers profiting from killing and destruction, the war on terror is alive and well . . . justifying military invasion and achieving their conquest of the African continent’s richest lands under the pretext of saving the world from terror.

70th Anniversary of the Dresden’s Real Holocaust

Dresden

February 13, 2015 — Imperishable pain, the suffering of our people from what was done to us after WWI when our Homeland, Danzig, was made a Free State. A Free State with a Harbour city to boot of 408,000 pure German people completely disarmed but surrounded by 35 Million hungry Poles armed to their teeth. Proud of our German heritage they called us Nazis. They call us Nazis still, and that was good enough to destroy the City of Danzig totally and for good measure gave it to Poland even before WWII had come to an end. The Poles then engaged in organized ethnic cleansing better known as Genocide of the whole of the Free State of Danzig population much to the delight of [Jewish] war criminals Roosevelt and Churchill, both responsible for the mass killings of Dresden inhabitants.

Timeline of International Nuclear Weapons Testing

August 22, 2011 — Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto has created a beautiful, undeniably scary time-lapse map of the 2,053 nuclear explosions which have taken place between 1945 and 1998, beginning with the Manhattan Project’s “Trinity” test near Los Alamos and concluding with Pakistan’s nuclear tests in May of 1998. This leaves out North Korea’s two alleged nuclear tests in this past decade (the legitimacy of both of which is not 100% clear) . . .

Comment: When you understand that there have been 1,032 nuclear explosions on the US West Coast alone from 1945 to 1998, you will appreciate how God allows man to destroy himself and prepared Los Angeles, much of California and a 1,500 x 300 – 400 section of Earth’s crust to sink beneath the Pacific, generating tidal waves that will sweep the world (Luke 21:25-26; Revelation 16:18; 18:21-24).


What’s behind Big Pharma’s Freak-out Media Blitz over Measles?

February 11, 2015 — “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!” – Upton Sinclair, anti-fascist, anti-imperialist American author who wrote in the early 20th century.

“No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable . . . for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death.” – President Ronald Reagan, as he signed The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986, absolving drug companies from all medico-legal liability when children die or are disabled from vaccine injuries.

“The AAP leadership knows very well that vaccines cause autism. We need not waste anymore efforts in trying to educate them; we need to indict them.” – Dr. David Ayoub

“When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses . . . the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker, a raving lunatic.” – Dresden James

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell

“Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” – Lord Acton

Everybody is well aware of the fear-based, 24/7 media freak-out over the 150 cases of red measles in the US, an unreported number of which had already been fully or partially vaccinated against measles. Some of them may possibly have been exposed to a recent vaccinee who was still actively shedding the live virus from that inoculation.

No conscientious truth-telling person in a position of authority has been allowed to come forward with all the facts that we need to know before ignorant non-scientist legislators go off half-cocked and pass laws demanding that every child everywhere be forced to get every CDC-recommended shots that keep the ‘well-child’ clinics humming (despite the fact that the ‘crisis’ is only about measles).

The blitz has all the markings of an orchestrated campaign, perhaps a good example of ‘crisis capitalism’ revealed to us in Naomi Klein’s seminal work, ‘The Shock Doctrine’. Whoever the hidden persuaders are, we know who will benefit from the freak-out. They are the Big Pharma megacorporations, their shareholders and others who are trying to shine up the honor of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Practice, and other medical trade organizations, all of which are highly dependent on Big Pharma’s largesse (in the form of advertising revenues and financial support for their medical conventions).

The 150 measles victims that everybody is talking about reside in the most highly vaccinated nation in the world. With 320,000,000 people as of January 1, 2015, there are still 319,000,850 unaffected people, many of whom have never been vaccinated against measles. I’m one of them, having gotten natural wild measles in childhood, which confers lifetime immunity, whereas the inoculations that contain the live measles virus do not confer lifetime immunity. A lot of people will take their chances, especially since the shots have become more and more unaffordable ever since corporations like the pharmaceutical companies have come to rule the nation, have bribed most of the politicians and have bought up most of the media . . .

Comment: The federal government agreed to pay damages to the family of Hannah Poling, “a child who developed autism after multiple vaccinations.” Attkisson explained that the “landmark case” amounted to $1.5 million for the girl the first year and $500,000 each year after. In total, the compensation could amount to $20 million over the child’s lifetime.

The Poling case was just one of thousands of cases filed in the National Vaccine Injury Program. But it was selected as a “test case” to evaluate the arguments underlying most of the other vaccine-autism claims. The case was “ordered sealed, protecting the pharmaceutical vaccine industry and keeping the crucial information hidden from other families who have autistic children and also believe vaccines to be the culprit.” But word leaked out (newswithviews.com).

On September 23, 2014, an Italian court in Milan award compensation to a boy for vaccine-induced autism. (See the Italian document here.) A childhood vaccine against six childhood diseases caused the boy’s permanent autism and brain damage. While the Italian press has devoted considerable attention to this decision and its public health implications, the US press has been silent (ageofautism.com).

The Amazing Biblical Archaeological Find no one Talks About

January 12, 2014 — It is probably one of the greatest finds of all time and, by the bizarre rules of biblical archeology; it’s also one of the least reported. Basically, in 1967, in Deir Alla, Jordan, Dutch archeologists discovered some kind of pagan house of worship or seminary. On its walls, there was a 2,800-year-old inscription in black ink. Key phrases are highlighted in red ink and the whole writing is framed in red. First of all, this is the oldest Aramaic inscription ever found. But if that’s not enough to make it a world-headline, the inscription is 600-800 years older than the Dead-Sea Scrolls. And if that’s not enough to merit international attention, the inscription mentions a prophet or “seer” named “Balaam son of Beor.” This is the exact name mentioned in the Torah/Bible (Numbers 22:2 – 24:25). This is the only instance where a specific individual mentioned in the story of the Exodus can be pointed to in archeology. So who is Balaam, and where is this inscription now?

Balaam is the bad guy of the Torah. He is the Darth Vader of the biblical Exodus. According to the Talmud, Balaam had the potential to be Moses, but he turned to the dark side (Av. Zar. 4a–b; Sanh. 105b; Avot 5:19). In a famous incident, as the Israelites are about to enter the Promised Land, Balak King of Moab asks Balaam to curse the children of Israel. Balaam is unable to do so. The Talmud explains that he looked at the Israelite tents and saw an amazing thing. The tents were rotated so that people could not see into each other’s bedrooms, so to speak. At that point, Balaam realized that the only way to weaken Israel was to corrupt them through sex.

According to the biblical narrative, Balaam was in charge of sex priestesses made up of Moabite and Midianite women. These women successfully seduced the Israelites in an orgy of sex and idolatry (Numbers 31:8, 16). 24,000 Israelite men were punished by God with death. At one point, the Israelite prince, Zimri son of Salu, publically fornicated with a Midianite princess named Cozbi, daughter of Zur, in the name of some kind of fertility rite. Apparently, these rituals were drawing big crowds until Phinehas son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the High Priest (brother of Moses), picked up a spear and killed Zimri and Cozbi with one thrust. This act ended Balaam’s attempt to subvert Israel through pagan sex (Numbers 25; 6-15). According to the Book of Joshua, Joshua took revenge by killing Balaam during the Israelite conquest of Canaan (Joshua, 13:22).

So . . . back to the Deir Alla inscription. The amazing thing is that it is found on the border of ancient Israel, exactly where you would expect to find it given the Biblical narrative. The people writing it are Balaam’s people. Meaning, for them he’s a hero, not a villain. So we’re getting the opposition point of view. They refer to him, just as in the Torah, as “Balaam Son of Beor.” Meaning, there is a letter-perfect synchronicity between the archeology and the Bible. But it gets better. According to the Torah, Balaam does have prophetic powers. According to the inscription, he is a prophet. According to the Torah, he gets his visions at night. According to the inscription, he gets his visions at night. According to the Torah, he worships false gods, but also dialogues with the God of Israel. According to the Deir Alla inscription, Balaam speaks to the “gods” and to “El” i.e., the God of Israel. But more than this, Balaam seems to be devoted to a goddess of fertility. Lest anyone think that the orgy episode in the Torah is exaggerated, the Deir Alla inscription refers to a “girl” or priestess who is “used” for the purpose of making one “saturated with love” (Combination 2, ii 4). It talks about God himself being “satisfied” with love making (Combination 2, ii 6).

So here you have a perfect synchronicity between the story in the Bible and the story that archeologists have discovered in a pagan temple in Jordan. But except for a few scholars, very few people have even heard of this discovery. More than this, the inscription has been removed from Deir Alla and put in drawers—I’m not kidding, drawers—in the Archeological Museum of Amman, capital of Jordan. Meaning, you could be standing right next to the greatest archeological match to the Bible and not know it.

The ultimate irony: in the Archeological Museum of Amman, they have a fragment of the Dead-Sea Scrolls. It is a quote from the Bible—the story of Balaam! So the amazing thing is that about 20 feet from each other are the Deir Alla inscription and the Dead-Sea Scroll, both quoting the exact same story—and both matching the Bible perfectly.

Isn’t it incredible? You don’t have to go into the realm of “Da Vinci Code” style fiction to discover biblical cover-ups. They’re happening as I write—and it’s not fiction, it’s all too real.

Wikipedia has an entry on it, and its translation doesn’t seem to necessarily refer to a fertility goddess, but it is the clear mention of a prophet Balaam son of Be’or as one of the few extra biblical references to Biblical characters by name.

Zechariah Chapters Ten and Eleven

 

Zechariah chapter 10

Zechariah 9:1 declared, “The burden of the Lord’s wrath will settle permanently upon the land of Hadrach and Damascus [until Syria is utterly prostrate, which was fulfilled under Alexander], for the Lord’s providence extends over the whole earth as well as all the tribes of Israel.” Chapters 10 and 11 describe God’s judgment upon Israel for rejecting Messiah Jesus through unbelief. Chapter 10 is an expansion of the prophecy in the foregoing chapter calling upon the Judahites to forsake their teraphim idolatry and petition the Lord in prayer; it promises rain, which He alone can send in response to faith, and fruitful seasons as promised in chapter 9:17.

Zechariah 10:1, “Ask the Lord for rain in the time of the latter rain [in mid-February, which is spring in Israel]; the Lord makes the thunderbolts and storm clouds and gives everyone who asks rain in abundance with vegetation in every field.”

Rain is a temporal symbol of Spiritual blessings. We are awaiting the latter rain, a Spiritual outpouring like the former or teaching rain that came upon Israelites on the day of Pentecost and upon Christ’s end-time Bride through the ministry of Brother Branham that restored the heart of those predestinated to be Christ’s end-time Bride back to the faith of their apostolic fathers by the revelation of Seven Thunder mysteries hidden under the Seven Seals (Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:1-7). Brother Branham said the latter or harvest rain will sweep the world causing every soul to manifest the nature of the seed sown therein. Judaeo-Catholic seed will bear Judaeo-Catholic fruit, and Judaeo-Communist seed, socialists: “he who is filthy will be filthy still, he who is righteous will be righteous still, and he who is holy will be holy still” (Genesis 1:11; Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43). Christ’s end-time Bride will manifest that she is the Word for her Age (Romans 8:19), and two Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 will be anointed to pour out the former or teaching rain on 144,000 elect Israelites (Joel 2:23; Daniel 12:10).

At the close of the Gentile dispensation an earthquake cleaving the Mount of Olives will destroy the Dome of the Rock on Mount Moriah, igniting the ‘hot stage’ of World War III. Then Jerusalem will be invaded, her women raped, homes and businesses looted, and the spoil leisurely divided in the city (Isaiah 13:16; Zechariah 14:1-2; Revelation 12:13-14). Consequently the Khazars will desert Israel en masse, returning to Poland, Russia, Germany, France, Hungary, Italy, USA, and the UK, etc. Jerusalem will be divided between East and West, the Palestinian sovereign state will be established as per UN Resolution 181, and the remnant of God’s people (Isaiah 11:11) [genuine blood Israelites who have remained in exile “for fear of the Jews” will return for their redemption to the land of the Covenant abandoned by their sworn enemy (Genesis 27:39-41)] and shall not be cut off from the city of Old Jerusalem.

Satan will be cast down to Earth to incarnate the pope of the Judaeo-Roman Universal church and great tribulation will envelop a world ruled by Rome and her US image. Russia will invade and occupy the earthquake-devastated US, with Los Angeles and much of the west coast sunk beneath the Pacific as William Branham prophesied—the antitype of Capernaum, which was sunk by earthquake beneath the Sea of Galilee in answer to Jesus’ prophecy (Matthew 11:23; Luke 10:15-16). Under martial law following this global convulsion of nature the wise and foolish virgin will be persecuted for their witness warning friends and strangers against the mark of the beast, and forbidden by the world church system from conducting services or even praying for the sick without affiliation. (This has been happening for years in the military and US prisons where I had to visit on the coat tails of the Gideons. Now house churches are being required to hold a permit). Quickly we will be made a hunted and persecuted little group with no resources but the Word of God and prayer, causing us to resort to the ‘third pull’: God’s response will elevate our faith to receive translation grace and change in the atoms. Thereafter the Devil-incarnate pope will unite the Judaeo-Roman denominations and all religions to restore peace, and be acclaimed president of one world government.

The call to prayer is contrasted with the idol-worship which had brought judgments on the princes and people. “For the idols have spoken vanity and the diviners have seen a lie, and have told false dreams; they comfort in vain: therefore they went their way as a flock, they were troubled, because there was no shepherd. My anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished those he-goats: for the Lord of hosts has visited His flock the house of Judah, and has made them as His goodly horse in the battle. Out of Judah shall come the cornerstone, out of them the tent peg, out of them the battle bow, out of them the Ruler over all the earth”.

Teraphim were household gods worshipped by Abram’s kinfolk in Mesopotamia (Joshua 24:14). Possession of the teraphim was the equivalent to holding title to the family estate. So when Jacob departed with Rachel, she stole her father Laban’s teraphim (Genesis 31:30-35), small images in human form (I Samuel 19:13-17) consulted in divination in place of the Urim Thummim alongside the worship of Jehovah (Hosea 3:4). There was a preponderance of diviners and false prognosticators before the overthrow of Israel, and then Judah (Jeremiah 27:9; Ezekiel 22:28). As a consequence the Lord sent them into exile, and until the advent of Jesus Messiah they were without a ruler in the Davidic line.

Owing to idolatry the Northern kingdom was dissolved and her subjects dispersed throughout the Assyrian Empire where they dwell to this day. When Judah followed Israel into trinitarian idolatry she lost her Davidic king “until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled,” that is, from Nebuchadnezzar’s invasion to Israel’s rebirth (Luke 21:24). So the people of all twelve tribes were without a true shepherd and became subjects of heathen governors whom the Lord calls “shepherds” but who as “he-goats” led the lambs to the slaughter. The Lord punished the he-goats in a military struggle and as in Zechariah 9:13 He called Judah His bow and Ephraim His arrow; here he calls Judah “His goodly horse in the battle” and “His flock.” The blessings promised in answer to prayer included rulers coming out of themselves—the Maccabees, Judah’s governors and deliverers from Antiochus—typifying Messiah’s future deliverance of the nation, the conquest of their foes, and restoration and establishment of both Israel and Judah in their own land in lasting peace and piety.

“Out of Judah came forth the corner, out of Judah the nail, out of them the battle bow, and out of them Messiah, the world Ruler.” The word “corner” signifies a governor (I Samuel 14:38; Isaiah 19:13; 28:16; Ephesians 4:15-16). Judah will no longer be subject to foreigners, but from itself will come every one of its rulers. This refers primarily to the Maccabees, Judah’s governors and deliverers from Antiochus the oppressor, and a type of Messiah. On them will hang all the glory and hope of Israel as on the large ornamental nail built into the wall of oriental tents hung most of its valuable furniture.

Messiah is the Antitype and Corner-stone who stays and binds together the Church of both Judahites and Gentiles. “And they shall be as mighty men, who tread down their enemies in the mire of the streets in the battle: and they shall fight, because the Lord is with them, and the riders on horses shall be confounded. And I will strengthen the house of Judah [the southern Kingdom], and I will save the house of Joseph [the northern Kingdom], and I will bring them again to place them [for redemption in the land of the Covenant]; for I have compassion upon them: and they shall be as though I had not cast them off: for I am the Lord their God, and will hear them.” Judah will not need foreign soldiery as Messiah will be her battle-bow. They are made Jehovah’s war horse, and so tread down on foot the foe with all his cavalry into the mire (Ezekiel 38:4; Daniel 11:40). Cavalry was the chief strength of the Syro-Grecian army (I Maccabees 3:39; 4:1).

In Zechariah 10:6 Judah and Joseph comprehend the whole House of Israel that is to be completely restored in the land of the Covenant: NOT in 1948 (Leviticus 26:40-46; 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,), but in the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week, hastening Israel’s glorious final consummation under Messiah. [Judah received the sceptre while Jacob marked Joseph as firstborn by assigning to him the birthright and double portion (forfeited by Reuben) which he bequeathed his two sons Ephraim and Manasseh in two tribal domains according to the law of the firstborn (Deuteronomy 21:15-17)]. Jehovah will hear them and they will rejoice in the Lord who has given them victory over the foe.

“Then Ephraim shall be like a mighty warrior, and their hearts shall be glad as with wine: their children shall see it, and rejoice; their hearts shall exalt in the Lord. I will whistle for them to gather together, for I have redeemed them: and they shall be many as of old”.

The metaphor is of the shepherd whistling to control his flocks. In Scripture it is always God, as the Great Shepherd who whistles (Judges 5:16; Isaiah 5:26; 7:18, etc.). This is the Good News of Jesus Messiah for Ephraim, and speaks of the restoration of the whole house of Israel in the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week. “Their children” speaks of the elect of the northern Tribes as qualified by Isaiah 54:13, “And all your children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of your children”.

Isaiah’s “all” is defined by John 6:44-45: “No man can come to Me, except the Father who has sent Me draws him: and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the prophets: And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that has heard, and has learned of the Father, comes to Me.” So Isaiah’s “all” is restricted to an election who recognize their day and its Message, as the blessing or new birth in each of the seven Church Ages was to those with a Spiritual ear to hear what the Spirit was saying to the Churches. Again, Jesus said: “My sheep receive My Word and will not follow a stranger” (John 10:1-5).

The Lord will soon gather His dispersed people back to Palestine (Zechariah 10:10; Isaiah 5:26; Ezekiel 36:11); the utter downfall of the Northern Kingdom so long before that of Judah will have removed every political reason for maintaining the ancient disruption, and all the circumstances of this coming time will incline the tribes to coalesce again as one people (Ezekiel 36:11).

Zechariah 10:9-12, “Though I have sown [and increased (Exodus 1:12)] them among the nations in far countries they will remember Me, and return to Israel with their children” (Ezekiel 37:14). The wide dispersion just before Christ’s first Coming prepared the way for the apostles’ preaching in synagogues throughout the world; and everywhere some Old Testament seed had been sown it was ready to germinate when New Testament Light and heat were brought to bear on it by Gospel preachers. Thus the way was opened for entrance among the Gentiles who would comprise the vast mass of Christ’s Bride.

“I will bring them back from the land of Egypt, and gather them from Assyria to the land of Gilead and Lebanon [the former home of the ten tribes on either side of the Jordan], till there is no room for them” because of their increase. This refers to the imminent restoration of the Israelites to the Land of the Covenant in the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week. As of old, God gloriously vindicated His people in the passage through the Red Sea, so now He will He make a way through every obstacle that opposes Israel’s restoration (Isaiah 11:11-16; Revelation 16:12). “And I will strengthen them in the Lord; and they shall walk up and down in His Name [Jesus Messiah, the Son of God]”.

These last four verses describe a far greater blessing than the victories of the Maccabees: spiritual blessings couched in terms borrowed from the old experiences of the people—the drying up of the Red Sea, the humiliation of Assyria and the overthrow of Egypt—set forth the removal of all obstacles impeding a spiritual return to God. But 2,000 years before this event takes place Israel would reject her Davidic King Messiah and be rejected herself while Christ calls His Gentile Bride; our dispensation will soon end followed by the resurrection of the sleeping saints and the manifestation and translation of the living Sons of God. The hour is exceedingly late.

After tracing the distresses of Israel in their apostasy, chapter 9 set forth their deliverance through military conflicts in which “the Lord will appear above them [because He fights from heaven on their behalf]” (Zechariah 9:14). The victories of the Maccabees were followed by a substantial increase in population within the dispersed of Israel and among the Judeans. In chapter 10 Judah was charged to put away idolatry and return to the Lord in repentance and prayer with the promise of millennial blessings. Now we will visit the fulfilled history of Judah under the Roman World Empire primarily from Christ’s first Coming, His rejection and resurrection, the destruction of the second Temple and Israel’s rejection, to the present day with glimpses of His millennial reign as the Son of David.

Zechariah chapter 11

This chapter concludes Zechariah’s first “burden” of God’s judgment upon Israel announced in chapter 9 and presents a marked contrast to the previous two chapters which were full of encouragement and speak much of conflict, but uniformly represent the Covenant people as victorious. After foretelling Judah’s protection from Alexander and with a passing glance at Zion’s future King Messiah, the triumphs of the Maccabees and the recovery of their former national strength and prestige, Zechariah proceeds to lift the veil from the final outcome of Jewish obduracy and it’s terrible results in order that the faithful should take alarm in time, and earnestly draw near to God that they not be overtaken by the divine judgment upon the unfaithful prophesied in the long chapters of Moses (Deuteronomy 28-32).

Zechariah 11:1-3, “Open your doors, O Lebanon, that the fire [of invasion by Imperial Rome] may devour your cedars. Wail, O cypress trees, for the cedar has fallen, the glory of the trees is ruined: Wail, O oaks of Bashan [in Syria], for the thick forest has been felled! Hear the cries of the shepherds; for their glory is despoiled [as the invaders devour pasture on which their flocks are dependent]: hear the roaring of young lions driven by the fiery blast of the invaders from their favourite lair, the thickets on the river banks, [then known as] the pride of the Jordan [because of the luxuriant bushes and reeds that enclose the stream] is laid waste” (Jeremiah 12:5; 49:19).

The Jordan valley forms a deeper gash than any on the earth. The Waters of Merom are level with the Mediterranean; the Sea of Tiberius (Galilee) is 650 feet below that level, and sixty miles further south the Dead Sea is 1,950 feet below the Mediterranean.

Lebanon was Israel’s northern boundary, the route by which Josephus says Rome gradually advanced towards Jerusalem, and owing to the civil war which caused their summons, swept through the land and deprived Judea of its independence. The second Temple and Jerusalem were razed and wasted under the successful siege of General Titus in AD70. God calls on the lesser trees to bewail the fall of the stately cedars as foreshadowing their own doom, for if the steep inaccessible forest on the mountainside is laid prostrate, much more must the cypresses and oaks be consumed. But the crushing ruin extends yet further. In a metaphor, the first three verses symbolize a whirlwind of flame sweeping through the entire land, laying waste to mountain and plain, forests and meadows, and drying up even rivers and streams. Men and beasts—Judah’s civil and religious leaders and those they are supposed to shepherd are overtaken and together cry in despair. Natural Israel had enjoyed peculiar privileges under the Covenant, but neglected the accompanying responsibilities. Amos 3:2, “You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities”.

Zechariah 11:4-14, “Thus says the Lord My God; [personate Me in pantomime as the Good Shepherd, Jesus Messiah, and] feed the flock doomed to slaughter; whose buyers and possessors [the Roman World Empire] slay them, and hold themselves not guilty; while those who sell them, [their Jewish rulers who thought that Jesus was thus sold and their selfish interest secured by His delivery to the Romans for crucifixion; but it was themselves and their country that they thus sold to their Roman possessors] saying, Blessed be the Lord; for I am rich: and not one of their own shepherds has pity on them (John 11:48-50; 19:15-18). For I will no longer have pity on the inhabitants of this land, says the Lord: but will cause every man to fall into the hand of his neighbour and into the hand of his king [Vespasian or Titus]: and they will turn the land into a wilderness, and I will not deliver it from their hand.”

“So I became the Shepherd of the flock destined for slaughter, even the poor of the flock. And I took two staves; the one I called Beauty, and the other I called Bands; and so I fed the flock. In one month I cut off three shepherds. My soul became impatient with them, and their soul detested Me. Then I said I will no longer shepherd you. What is to die, let it die; what is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let the remainder eat the flesh of his fellow” (Revelation 22:11, 18-19).

The cause of this judgment is Israel’s rejection of the Good Shepherd, Jesus Messiah, through their unbelief. Zechariah acted out the part of Messiah who would fulfill the prophecy five hundred years later and feed “the lost sheep of the House of Israel.” Israel types the United States which Messiah fed veiled behind the flesh of William Branham and was again rejected and crucified afresh (II Timothy 4:3-4; Hebrews 6:6; Revelation 3:20). Brother Branham prophesied the terminal fate of that rogue state and terrorist nation with other colonies and occupied nations subservient to the City of London, Israel and Vatican City. Amos 3:3, “Two cannot walk together except they are agreed.” Repeatedly in the course of previous history God visited Israel, executing His wrath by war, pestilence or famine, or sold them into the hand of their enemies for shorter or longer periods. In the end the rod was lifted but sadly they resumed their former condition. Now, however, there would be a final act of judgment summing up all that had gone before, filling His wrath on obdurate impenitence as presaged in the seventh vision of Brother Branham’s apocalypse “wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:3).

One and a half million perished in the Jewish war and a million one hundred thousand at the fall of Jerusalem. During the siege of Titus parents did to their own children according to prophecy (Deuteronomy 28:55; Jeremiah 20:9; Lamentations 4:10). Josephus tells of a certain Mary who, “snatching up her son, who was a child sucking at her breast, she said, “O thou miserable infant! For whom shall I preserve thee in this war, this famine, and this sedition? As to the war with the Romans, if they preserve our lives, we must be slaves. This famine also will destroy us, even before that slavery comes upon us. Yet are these seditious rogues more terrible than both the other. Come on; be thou my food, and be thou a fury to these seditious varlets, and a byword to the world, which is all that is now wanting to complete the calamities of us Jews.” As soon as she had said this, she slew her son, and then roasted him, and ate the one half of him, and kept the other half by her concealed. Upon this the seditious came in presently, and smelling the horrid scent of this food, they threatened her that they would cut her throat immediately if she did not show them what food she had gotten ready. She replied that she had saved a very fine portion of it for them, and withal uncovered what was left of her son. Hereupon they were seized with a horror and amazement of mind, and stood astonished at the sight, when she said to them, “This is mine own son, and what hath been done was mine own doing! Come; eat of this food; for I have eaten of it myself! Do not you pretend to be either more tender than a woman, or more compassionate than a mother; but if you be so scrupulous, and do abominate this my sacrifice, as I have eaten the one half, let the rest be reserved for me also.” After which those men went out trembling, being never so much affrighted at anything as they were at this, and with some difficulty they left the rest of that meat to the mother. Upon which the whole city was full of this horrid action immediately; and while everybody laid this miserable case before their own eyes, they trembled, as if this unheard of action had been done by themselves. So those that were thus distressed by the famine were very desirous to die, and those already dead were esteemed happy because they had not lived long enough either to hear or to see such miseries.”

“This sad instance was quickly told to the Romans, some of whom could not believe it, and others pitied the distress which the Jews were under; but there were many of them who were hereby induced to a more bitter hatred than ordinary against our nation. But for Caesar, he excused himself before God as to this matter, and said that he had proposed peace and liberty to the Jews, as well as an oblivion of all their former insolent practices; but that they, instead of concord, had chosen sedition; instead of peace, war; and before satiety and abundance, a famine. That they had begun with their own hands to burn down that temple which we have preserved hitherto; and that therefore they deserved to eat such food as this was. That, however, this horrid action of eating an own child ought to be covered with the overthrow of their very country itself, and men ought not to leave such a city upon the habitable earth to be seen by the sun, wherein mothers are thus fed, although such food be fitter for the fathers than for the mothers to eat of, since it is they that continue still in a state of war against us, after they have undergone such miseries as these. And at the same time that he said this, he reflected on the desperate condition these men must be in; nor could he expect that such men could be recovered to sobriety of mind, after they had endured those very sufferings, for the avoiding whereof it only was probable they might have repented” (Josephus, Wars of the Jews, VI, 3:4-5).

“And I took My staff, Beauty [that makes the Lord the object of desire], and hacked it apart, to break the covenant which I had made with all the people. It was broken in that day: and the wretched among the sheep, who were watching Me, knew that it was the Word of the Lord. Then I said to them, If it seems right to you, give Me My wage; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for My wages thirty pieces of silver. And the Lord told Me [not without irony]: Cast it to the potter—a magnificent price, so highly esteemed and precious am I in their sight. [Jesus of the New Testament is Jehovah of the Old]. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter [or image-maker] in the house of the Lord. [Thus in verses 15 and 17 He calls Rome and the whole body of native rulers “idol [or wicked] shepherds”]. Then I hacked apart My other staff, even Bands [or cords of unity], that I might break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel”.

The Eastern people in making a league would often tie a cord or band in symbol of it, and untie it when they dissolve the confederacy. Messiah would have joined Judah and Israel in the bonds of common faith and common laws, but they would not; therefore in just retribution He broke “His covenant which He had made with all the people [of Israel]” when “all the people” as a nation renounced Him (Matthew 27:22-25). Alexander, Antiochus Epiphanes, and Pompey were all kept from marring utterly the distinctive “beauty” and “brotherhood” of Judah and Israel, which subsisted more or less so long as the Temple stood. But once He “hacked” the staves Titus himself could not save the Temple from his own Roman soldiery.

Picture Zechariah in your mind as he rehearses this pantomime before the people here and there, as he moves about the towns and villages in Judah. The Good Shepherd loves His sheep and when He came He expected that He would be loved and received by them in return, but instead He is despised and rejected by a people who demand His blood and prefer the murderous life of Barabbas and Caesar’s heathen rule to that of Messiah their King (Isaiah 53:3; Matthew 27:15-21; John 19:15). His acting is in vain because of their obdurate wickedness, and results in mutual recoil. He loathes them, and they abhor Him. Compelled by their ingratitude, He breaks His two staves in token that all is over. Thus Israel is a flock doomed to perish in the divine judgment, their national inheritance and “the kingdom of God taken from them is given to a nation bringing forth its fruits. And whoever shall fall on this [Cap-]stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it falls, it will grind him to powder” (Matthew 21:33-46). As Judge the Stone falls upon unbelievers who, running against and falling over the Word, make Him a spiritual offence and stumbling block (Isaiah 8:14; Matthew 23:39; I Peter 2:6-8). They will be spiritually dismembered in individual reprobation as Israel was dissolved then ground to powder, reduced to their elements and annihilated (Daniel 2:34-35).

As Christ, Zechariah “fed the flock” or set to guide, feed and defend a people so wicked and hardened that they are already ‘cherem‘ or devoted to slaughter in just retribution for their sinful ways. The passage is analogous to the parable of the wicked husbandman just quoted wherein the Jews, when asked by our Lord what should be the fate of those wicked husbandmen, sealed their own fate and pronounced their own sentence, saying, “They will be miserably destroyed, and the vineyard let out to others, [Gentiles], who will render the fruits in their seasons [or Church Ages]”.

“In one month [at the terminus of His ministry] Messiah cut off three shepherds”—the three orders by which Israel was ruled (Matthew 16:21)—the civil authorities, the priests and the prophets (through the scribes), which were subsumed in the true Temple, their Prophet, Priest and King, Jesus Messiah, whom the elect nation will recognize in the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week. Jesus was presented as the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee, while as priest He taught in the Temple and was hailed as Son of David and King (Matthew 21:9-11, 23). Then the furious mob, incensed by these “three shepherds” to unthinking hatred against Messiah, gathered before Pilate’s tribunal shouting: “Away with Him, crucify Him. The Roman governor asked, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests replied [decisively], We have no king but Caesar” of whom Zechariah, personating Jesus, had said, “I will no longer have compassion on the inhabitants of this land: I will deliver every man into the hand of his fellow, and into the hand of his king [Caesar]: and they will transform the land into a desert, and I will not deliver them from their hand”  (John 19:15; Zechariah 11:6). Like their counterparts in Christendom, these perverters of the nation were the cause of its destruction (Jeremiah 2:8, 18) and were “cut off” in the last period of the siege of Jerusalem when all authority within the city was at an end. “One month” approximated the Feast of Weeks at whose conclusion the New Covenant opened to “whomsoever will” of Adam’s race. Today these “three shepherds,” incensed against God’s revealed Word, have outlawed Christianity and plot false flag terrorism upon innocent Islam (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:11-14).

These decisive words “cut off the three shepherds” and filled up Israel’s iniquity: “Had I not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty: but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates Me hates My Father also. Had I not accomplished the works among them which no other man accomplished, they would not be guilty: but now they have seen and hated both Me and My Father. They have done this so the Words of their Law might be fulfilled: They hated me without a cause” (Psalm 69:4; John 15:22-25).

After four hundred years without a prophet John the Baptist and Jesus Christ were murdered, since when no prophet has been sent to Israel. Her Levitical priesthood was replaced by the priesthood of Jesus Christ and spiritual Israelites from every nation, tribe, and tongue of Adam’s race, and God sent Titus to destroy the Temple and the Muslims to desecrate Mount Moriah with Al Aqsa Mosque and Es Sakhra, the Dome of the Rock as prophesied by Jesus and Daniel (Daniel 9:26; 11:31; Matthew 24:2, 15). Israel’s King was to be God Himself but Israel desired a man “born in sin and conceived in iniquity,” who could be touched sensually without faith and chose a handsome Hollywood type who was head and shoulders over his kinsmen: he failed. God’s choice was a ruddy-faced little runt named David, a young man of such faith he feared not to confront and slay the Serpent’s seed Goliath in the Name of the Lord. As the Israelites degenerated spiritually and morally, God chastised them with a view to correction and at the season foretold by the prophets He took human form as Israel’s King through the virgin birth. Repudiated by Israel and “delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, they crucified Him by wicked hands” (Acts 2:23).

Do you see the parallel with the apostate churches of today who despised and rejected the ministry of Brother Branham which revealed Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, and today, and forever, in the office of Son of Man as foretold in Luke 17:28-30 by discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart, restoring sight to the blind, speech and hearing to deaf mutes, casting out demons, making cripples whole, and raising the dead? Do see the reality of “preaching to the total lost”? “For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). This was the Messianic sign that revealed Christ the Word veiled behind the created man in the days of Lot, behind the flesh of the virgin-born Man in the Gospels, and behind the flesh of William Branham, a sinner saved by grace.

The Good Shepherd renounced His flock to receive the consequences of its fatal rejection of the means of their own deliverance. Accordingly He broke the staff He named “Beauty,” annulling the Covenant and setting aside the outward symbols distinguishing the excellency of Israel above the Gentiles (Zechariah 11:7) as God’s own people hereby removing the restraint from violence which He had hitherto laid upon the enmity of foreign nations. In the day it was broken, the “little flock” who gave heed to the Lord recognized the fulfillment of Scripture (John 10:4-5, 14-15; Jeremiah 32:8). After breaking one, and before breaking the other He asked Jewry for His wages, but only if they were willing to acknowledge and appreciate His pastoral care. That He left the matter to their pleasure—if it seems good”—indicates He served them in obedience to the divine will and not for money. The wages due were heartfelt penitence and faith. But they offered the compensation for a slave who had been killed or the price for which one could purchase a female slave, thirty pieces of silver (Exodus 21:32; Hosea 3:21). Matthew 27:9-10 refers to Jeremiah since he was the original author from whom Zechariah derived the groundwork of the prophecy. Such a contemptuously undervalued offer by the flock was more offensive that a direct refusal, and was indignantly rebuked by the Lord.

Do you see the parallel in Brother Branham’s ministry whereby he indicted the Great harlot of Rome and her (once) Protestant daughters, commanding the wise and foolish virgin: “Come out of Babylon that you do not partake of her sins and receive not of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4)? When Christ “the fullness of the Word came” through the spoken Word of Brother Branham’s Elijah ministry revealing the unwritten mysteries of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10, which are the revelations of the six written Seals, the denominations “cut off three shepherds”: Prophet, Priest and King, and because “that which was in part was done away” (I Corinthians 13:10) God annulled His Covenant. His priesthood as Mediator in the Office Son of God was fulfilled at the close of the Laodicean Church Age as confirmed by Revelation 4 and 5; simultaneously they rejected His Offices of Son of Man and King. Hence Brother Branham’s ministry “proclaimed the day of vengeance of our God” (Isaiah 61:2; Malachi 4:6; Revelation 18:4).

The Good Shepherd then broke the second staff named “Bands,” signifying the loss of fraternal unity represented under the disruption of the nation into two hostile entities in the days of Jeroboam of Israel and Rehoboam of Judah, and the severance of the tribes will continue until their reunion and martyrdom in Daniel’s Seventieth Week (Isaiah 11:13; Romans 11:15; Revelation 7:1-8). Now the scene changes; instead of personating the wise and kind Good Shepherd, Zechariah is told to play the part of a worthless shepherd, or ruling power. His gentle staves Beauty and Bands are replaced by knives and battle axes, and the flock, so far from being fed, guided and guarded, is torn and devoured, and then at last its misguided rulers are smitten and palsied.

We come now to the Gentile dispensation—2,000 years during which God’s Covenant with Israel is breached because to preserve their social standing her shepherds sold Him to Satan incarnate in Judas Iscariot, such was their unbelief (Matthew 26:14-16; John 13:2; Modern Events are made Clear by Prophecy, p. 42:282). John 11:47-50, “The chief priests and the Pharisees summoned the Sanhedrin and said: What shall we do, for this Man does many miracles? If we let Him go on this way, everyone will believe on Him: and the Romans will come and take away both our holy place and nation. But one of them, Caiaphas, the high priest that year, said to them, You know nothing at all, you do not understand that it is expedient for you to have one man die for the people, that the whole nation should not perish”.

Zechariah 11:15-17, “The Lord said to me: Take again the implements of a worthless shepherd. For I am raising up in the land a shepherd who does not care for the perishing, nor seek the scattered, or heal the wounded: even the healthy he will not sustain: but the flesh of the fat he will eat, even their hoofs he will tear off [indicating the ferocious greed of the shepherds who will rend the extremities to extract their “pound of flesh”]. Woe to the worthless shepherd who forsakes the flock! The sword shall be upon [the strength of] his arm and [the vigilance of] his right eye: his arm shall be totally withered, and his right eye utterly blinded”.

The “worthless shepherd” was pagan Rome that became papal Rome which will ultimately be shepherded by Satan himself, cast down to earth and incarnate in the pope (as he incarnate Judas Iscariot) with whom Jewry will covenant when he restores peace following the brief ‘hot stage’ of the present World War III (Daniel 7:8-11; 8:9-27; 9:27; 11:35-38), and the world will acclaim him president of one world government. When Jesus said: “I have come in My Father’s Name, and you receive Me not: if another comes in his own name, you will accept Him,” He was speaking of Israel’s false messiah (John 5:43). In Matthew 24:21-23 He said: “[After the destruction of the Temple there] will be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved [for the translation]: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened [by the revelation of the mystery of the Seven Thunders]. Then if any man tells you, Look, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.” Because, as He explains, His second Coming to His Bride and later to Israel, will NOT be the physical ‘erchomai’ return of the glorified Jesus but the ‘parousia’ Coming of Christ in W_O_R_D form.

In Revelation 13:1-8 Jesus identifies the pope of Rome, a man incarnate by Satan whom the whole world will worship as the false messiah. “. . . all the world wondered after the beast. And [vicariously] worshipped the dragon [Satan] for he has given his authority to the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying: Who is like the beast, and who is able to make war against him? . . . And he was allowed to make war on the saints, and to overcome them [in martyrdom]: and power was given him over every tribe and people and tongue and nation. And all who dwell on the earth whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world will worship him.” And in Revelation 17:11 Jesus identifies this beast as “the eighth, and is of the seven [deified Roman rulers], and goes into perdition”.

Isaiah 14:13-14 identifies Israel’s false messiah as Lucifer, who will usurp the dedication of the third Temple in Jerusalem and be worshipped as God, “I will sit in the mount of the congregation [of Israel], in the sides of the North: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High,” a prophecy confirmed by Paul in II Thessalonians 2:1-12. “The Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to meet Him [in the Air] . . . will be preceded by universal apostasy (Matthew 25:6; II Timothy 3-4; Revelation 3:17-20; 18:4) and the revelation of that man of sin, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god that is worshipped, so that he seats himself in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God . . . For the mystery of iniquity is already at work: only the Holy Spirit will continue to restrain it until He is taken out of the way in the translation of His end-time Bride. Then that Wicked One will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will consume with the Spirit of the spoken Word, and destroy with the brightness of His Coming. . .”

In Luke 19:41-44, Jesus wept over Jerusalem, “Saying, If only you knew that eternal peace was within your reach! But now it is hidden from your eyes. For the time is coming when your enemies will throw up ramparts, and build a trench, and encircle you, and besiege you on every side, and lay you and your children even with the ground; and will not leave one stone upon another; because you knew not the time of your Divine visitation”.

In response to the unanimous pleas of the Jews—“Messiah’s Blood be on us and upon our children”—the ruin of Jerusalem and Judea was overwhelming (Matthew 26:25). To this day they are ruled by worthless shepherds, impersonators sworn to kill the Covenant people (Genesis 27:39-41) and any who disagree with them. God often uses instruments which He afterwards destroys, and He will destroy the children of Cain whom He set at enmity with Adam’s race. How many are the “idol shepherds” in the circle of this Message? “Foolish shepherds” with the audacity to invite Christ-rejecting Talmudic rabbis to speak from their pulpits, promoting the construction of Jerusalem’s third Temple and the restoration of animal sacrifices which are patent blasphemy manifesting their folly to all men (II Timothy 3:9; Revelation 3:17-20).

What Rome did to Israel, Jewry will do to the world in Armageddon. Israeli Professor Martin Levi van Creveld declared, “We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force. Let me quote General Moshe Dayan: ‘Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.’ We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that this will happen before Israel goes under.” Golda Meir stated, “If ever Israel was in danger of being defeated on the battlefield, it would be prepared to take the region and even the whole world down with it.” Their international banksters have accomplished this financially with their Babylonian WMD fractional reserve system of usury, which is forbidden by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who has provided a way to rid modern Israel of a great many self-styled Jews so that the 144,000 elect Israelites can safely return for redemption to the land of their Covenant in the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week (Zechariah 14:2; Revelation 12:13-14).

Wicked rulers are the curse of God upon a wicked nation; not only upon Israel, for the United States, Australia and every nation is being chastised by God, because by placing materialism above Christ we have sold principle, soul and nation to the sons of Cain. Satan says politics and religion should never be discussed in polite company. Thus “the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now, waiting in earnest expectation for the manifestation of the Sons of God”  (Romans 8:19, 22). A right understanding of and obedience to heavenly and temporal tenets should be our prime concern as individuals and members of society. Politics and the one true faith, which tends to prevent the reign of evil, must be unashamed partners led by revelation of the Absolute of God’s unchanging Word. nl876.htm

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

There are fascinating developments in the news this week. For those with eyes to see, Scripture is unfolding in real time, but there has been silence from our Jew-controlled media. So be sure you follow the links.

The Lord allotted man three score and ten years. And from May 6, 1947 when the First Committee of the UN determined the make-up of the UN Special Committee on Palestine (UNSCOP) to 2017 will be 70 years. Jesus said, “Learn a parable of the fig tree [Israel]; when his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves [as it did on May 14, 1948], you know that summer [and the harvest of figs or birth of the nation of 144,000 elect Israelites on one Day of Atonement after the midst of Daniel’s Seventieth Week] is nigh: so when you [Israelites] see the first Six Seals of Matthew 24:4-31 have come to pass, know that your redemption is at the doors. I assure you, the generation lives to see the modern Israel state established shall not expire through old age, till all these things are fulfilled” (Matthew 24:32-34; Isaiah 66:8). The Gentile dispensation will end at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, so we are very close.

You will have found Newsletter 873 a little confusing on account of my awkward English. This has been revised with words added to identify the Scriptures in time and place so I encourage you to please download and study it once again. Today we will study Zechariah chapter nine which prophesies the victories of the Greek World Empire under Alexander the Great, of the Seleucids who succeeded to the Syrian quarter after his death, and of the Maccabees and the coming Messiah.

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.

Zionazi Defeat now Inevitable

February 09, 2015 — The defeat of the international Zionazi crime cabal is now inevitable due to events rapidly unfolding around the world, most notably in the Middle East and the Ukraine. The arrest by Germany last week of a US government official carrying billions of dollars in forged US$100 bills destined for the Ukraine has had enormous . . . repercussions” . . .

There is a G20 meeting going on in Turkey which, according to Russian sources, is part of a series of meetings aimed at being the equivalent of the 1945 Yalta . . . These meetings are discussing a total transformation of the current international architecture including the IMF, the World Bank and the UN. Some national boundaries may also be redrawn, notably in the Middle East, the Ukraine and Korea. There is also a determination to permanently end Zionazi mischief.

The discovery that American State Department officials were supplying forged dollars to both sides of the battle in the Eastern Ukraine has already caused Germany and France to split with the Zionazi regime in Washington DC German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande already met Russia’s Vladimir Putin last week without US approval and are planning on another meeting Wednesday . . .

The US official arrested by Germany has spilled the beans on exactly how the Zionazis were orchestrating the civil war in the Ukraine. The Vanguard Corporation, a front for the Federal Reserve Board (according to MI5) has paid mercenaries to kill people on both side of the conflict there so that they would blame it on each other. They also gave money to buy weapons to both sides of the conflict. This is the modus operandi used to destroy Yugoslavia . . . now in operation in Syria and Iraq.

The report of what the Germans discovered in the Ukraine prompted a Japanese government source to tell this writer about a meeting with Agostinho Neto, President of Angola during that country’s civil war. At the time Neto showed him a room filled with $5 billion in cash and told him George Bush Sr. had flown it in on a jumbo jet and told him to use it to buy weapons. This event took place at a time when officially the United States was supporting rebels fighting against Neto’s “communist” regime . . .

The G20 meeting ending today in Turkey . . . Pentagon sources say that already a secret deal has been reached with the Russians, Turks and Iranians that will allow them to take out the regime in Saudi Arabia and force them to pay heavy financial compensation for all the terrorist activities they have sponsored. The Pentagon will not defend the Saudis who they rightfully suspect were one of the main sponsors (together with US based Zionazis) of the 9/11 terror attacks . . .

In any case, the plan to take down the Zionazis in the Middle East has already begun with regime change in Yemen. Now the Island nation of Cyprus, a member of the EU, has allowed Russia to open military bases there. . . European banks will have a $100 trillion derivative hole in their accounts when the Greek government makes good on its promise to end debt slavery . . . Full story: truth11.com.

Is Peace or War at Hand?

February 09, 2015 — Perhaps Putin’s patience is finally paying off. There are reports that Germany and France oppose Washington’s plan to send weapons to Ukraine. French president Hollande now supports autonomy for the break-away republics in Ukraine. His predecessor, Sarkozy, said that Crimea chose Russia and we cannot blame them, and that the interests of Americans and Europeans diverge when it comes to Russia. Germany’s foreign minister says that Washington’s plan to arm Ukraine is risky and reckless. And on top of it all, Cyprus has offered Russia an air base.

We will see how Washington responds to the French statements that European interests with regard to Russia diverge from Washington’s. Washington does not recognize any valid interest except its own. Therefore, it has been fruitless for Russia to negotiate with Washington and Washington’s EU vassals. To come to an agreement with Washington has required Russia’s surrender to Washington’s terms. Russia must hand over Crimea, Russia’s warm water port, and Moscow must stand aside while the Russian people in eastern and southern Ukraine, the “break-away” provinces, are slaughtered. Russia must support the hostile regime in Kiev with loans, grants, and low gas prices.

That is the only deal Russia has been able to get from Washington, because the EU has supported Washington’s line. With French presidents reportedly now saying, “We are part of a common civilization with Russia,” Europe is on the road to independence . . . Full story: paulcraigroberts.org


New Video Evidence of America’s Coup in Ukraine – and What it Means

February 09, 2015 — New video evidence has been added to the already-conclusive video evidence which shows that the US Government was the controlling power behind the extremely violent and illegal 18-27 February 2014 Ukrainian coup that overthrew democratically elected and never legally removed-from-power Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.

. . . Even after fake ‘democratic’ elections, it’s the same illegal regime in Ukraine that the US imposed at its February 2014 coup, because no nationwide vote has occurred in Ukraine throughout that country’s expanse after the American coup; it’s still just a rump-Ukrainian Government, not one representing the residents either in Crimea or in Ukraine’s far east (neither of which regions participated in Ukrainian elections after the coup)—and yet this illegal violent coup-imposed Ukrainian regime (and the US that imposed it, and even the EU that sheepishly backed it) nonetheless demand (against all legalities) that this blatantly illegal US-imposed Ukrainian Government must control those areas, which reject this nazi imposed Government—that the residents in the regions that had voted overwhelmingly for Yanukovych don’t have the right to self-determination, but must instead accept a coup that goes exactly against, and even has gone so far as to overthrow, the Government for which the residents in those regions had overwhelmingly voted.

This was a violent takeover of the Ukrainian Government, by profoundly racist anti-Russian nationalist Ukrainians, who were in the pay of the US Government. And, it sparked such terror into the hearts of Russians and of Ukraine’s minorities (who were especially large a proportion of the Crimean population), so that, first, Crimea broke away and declared its no longer being a part of Ukraine (it would return to Russia, of which it had been a part from 1783-1954, almost its entire modern existence); and, then, starting on May 9th of 2014, a Ukrainian civil war broke out when the US-installed Government of Ukraine actually invaded the regions (other than Crimea) that rejected it; and the United States oversaw and sent even more mercenaries to this extremely bloody ethnic cleansing campaign to get rid of the residents in the specific region (called ‘Donbass’ and shown in dark purple on this map) of Ukraine that had voted 90% for Yanukovych. . .

The CIA edits Wikipedia articles, and so the title of the Wikipedia article on the coup is ‘2014 Ukrainian revolution,’ not ‘2014 Ukrainian coup.’ Also because of the CIA’s editing, the date of Yatsenyuk’s official appointment to head the Government is buried, instead of being featured in that article (as it should be) . . .

Obama is treated as if he is a respectable person, while Putin is treated as if he had been the aggressor in all this. But there was once a time when the differences between the US and USSR were ideological, and the US was an authentic democratic nation, and the USSR was an authentic communist dictatorship; and, in that time, and specifically back in 1962, it was the USSR that was seeking to place nuclear missiles near to us (in Cuba), not like now, when the dictatorial US is instead trying to place nuclear missiles near to democratic Russia (inside Ukraine). Did America’s major news media, back at that earlier time, think that what the USSR was trying to do to us was tolerable, and should be permitted? Of course not! So: why their double standard now? Or is today’s US instead a totally different country, an outright nazi one now, against Russia? Even if Russia were a dictatorship (and it’s probably less so than the US now is), what America is trying to do to it is disgraceful. And what the US Government is trying to do to the residents in Donbass is absolutely outrageous, and should be presented to the International Criminal Court for war-crimes trials . . .

America (and its client Ukraine) is the aggressor; Russia (and its client Donbass) is doing what it needs to do in order to defend themselves from the US and its allies: there are 27 of those other nations in the US-run Russia-hating club; it’s called NATO, and it needs to be disbanded immediately, because its constructive function ended when the Soviet Union did; and, afterwards, it’s just nazi, and is a huge threat against the entire world . . .

Here is Professor Francis Boyle, the most internationally prestigious authority on such matters, summing it all up:

Boyle told RIA Novosti on May 8: “The Ukrainian crisis had been planned as well as the war. There was a war plan, there was a war game. Then it was revised and implemented . . . We are seeing steps now being taken that were planned in advance,” Boyle said, adding, “This is all being used as a pretext to bring NATO military forces, as Rasmussen said, by air, sea, and land right up to the borders of the Russian Federation. They are clearly going ahead with this.”

Boyle extolled Russia for trying to exhaust all diplomatic means possible to resolve the Ukrainian crisis, and accused the United States and NATO of deliberate escalation.

“So that the US won’t be provided with any more pretexts for hostile provocative maneuvers that they are going to take in any event,” Boyle asserted . . . “Russian President Vladimir Putin is in a very difficult and dangerous situation and needs to be very careful. The US has already resumed the Cold War with the neo-Nazi coup d’état in Ukraine that the United States sponsored, controlled, and directed,” he said . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Comment: Talk of “Nazis” is an attempt by the City of London to further milk their investment in “right” Hegelian Professor Karl Ritter whom they employed to devise National Socialism as the antithesis to Rothschild’s International Socialism Karl Marx was employed to update as the Communist Manifesto with the objective of bringing both into controlled conflict in World War II. (Ritter’s work was continued after his death by the so-called philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche).

I believe we are witnessing preparations for Ezekiel 38 and 39. The United States, Israel and NATO will have their brief World War III in which Israel and the United States will be defeated. Pope Francis, then incarnate by Satan, will restore peace, be acclaimed president of one world government and refinance the US dollar with gold backing. Some years hence Rome will break her agreement with the international Jews; ten European countries will turn upon the US, and Russia will annihilate the United States and Vatican City State as foretold by Jesus.


Global Economic Growth ended in 2000

February 4, 2015 — Western governments conceal this fact through debt creation, inflation and clever manipulation of statistical economic indicators. According to Tim Morgan, leading analyst at the London financial brokerage Tullett Prebon, economic growth ended in 2000 and the economy has been shrinking ever since.

Morgan attributes the end of global economic growth to the high cost of fossil fuels. This is because the real economy (which many people confuse with the financial economy) is a direct function of surplus energy. In pre-agricultural times, there was no energy surplus: human beings derived exactly the same amount of energy from their food as they expended acquiring it. With the advent of farming, they managed to produce a small surplus of energy that enabled a small minority to engage in work other than food production . . .

Energy surplus is measured as EROEI (Energy Returned Over Energy Invested), the ratio between the energy produced and the energy consumed in the extraction or production process . . . Morgan is highly critical of politicians who fail to distinguish between the real economy of goods and services and the shadow economy of money and finance. He also feels globalization and rampant consumerism have been extremely damaging to the real economy. The mistake western countries made with globalization was reducing their production without reducing consumption. Instead they increased consumption levels by increasing borrowing and debt. Globalization was extremely beneficial for banks, due to the voracious demand for their product (loans). Meanwhile the diversion of large sums from production to the finance sector—aggravated by consumerism and the rise of consumer debt—hastened the decline of the real economy . . .

Palestine’s Bid to join ICC on Late Night Live

Monday 9, 2015 — At the beginning of this year, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas submitted the appropriate forms to become a signatory to the International Criminal Court. Shortly afterwards UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon confirmed Palestine will officially be a member from April 1st, despite the UN not recognising Palestine as a state. So how do they get around this and what does this mean for the peace process between Palestine and Israel? . . . Audio: abc.net.au

Comment: The end of the Gentile dispensation draws nigh. I should have thought “what constitutes Palestinian territory” was agreed by Israel, the Palestinians and the UN in UN Resolution 181 on November 29, 1947.


Immunity Granted to CDC Whistleblower who admitted covering up Links between Autism and Vaccines

February 5, 2014 — In 2004, Dr. William S. Thompson worked on a report for the CDC’s National Immunization Program. That report, which ran in the “Pediatrics” medical journal, came to the conclusion that there’s no link between vaccines and autism and that no racial group is more likely to be damaged by vaccines. But Thompson said that he and other CDC scientists intentionally fudged the results, manipulating the pool of children they analyzed and limiting the proper number of African-American children from participating . . .

Dr. Hooker has fought against the CDC for more than 12 years, using the Freedom of Information Act to try and gather as much data as he could from the studies that the CDC has published that claim there is no link between vaccines and autism. He has submitted much of the results of his own internal investigation of the CDC data on vaccines and autism to Congress . . . the CDC finally handed over documents so that Dr. Hooker could look at the raw data . . . It took some Congressional pressure . . . to get this information . . .

When comparing cases and controls receiving their first MMR vaccine before and after 36 months of age, there was a statistically significant increase in autism cases specifically among African American males who received the first MMR prior to 36 months of age . . . Childhood Hepatitis vaccines have been blamed by many for the preponderance of autism and other neurological disorders in children, despite no official government-recognized study confirming the longstanding suspicion by parents and advocates. All 50 states require some vaccinations for young children. The CDC childhood vaccine schedule dates back to 1983 and grew consistently through the mid-’90s . . . Full story: freedomoutpost.com


Taiwan Plane Crash a complete HOAX

February 10, 2015 — The TransAsia Airways crash is in fact a complete fabrication and a CGI Hoax! The One World Government believes that the people are too STUPID to question . . . captured on, not one, but TWO vehicle dash cams?—with only ONE OTHER VEHICLE visible? . . . the female “crisis actor” standing in the middle of the photo—in the water next to the downed plane, miraculously appears to have dry hair, even though the plane was upside down in the water.

Nanowire-Coated Fabric keeps you warm so Your House won’t have to

January 13, 2015 — According to the International Energy Agency, indoor heating accounts for almost half of total global energy usage, mainly on heating residential buildings. In a recent study published in Nano Letters, researchers from Stanford University describe a better way to conserve thermal energy. The nanomaterial-coated fabric they created traps heat inside a person’s clothing, thereby removing the necessity to heat empty space and inanimate objects, and lowering the cost of household heating to (theoretically) almost nothing . . .

Instead of using rigid metal, the team decided to create a coating using easily bendable silver nanowires that can go on top of everyday clothing . . . For everyday wear, cloth coated with silver nanowires successfully reflects infrared radiation—something humans naturally emit—back into the body. To warm up even more, a person wearing the cloth can give it a charge while sitting at the computer. The movement of electricity from an electrical device across the cloth creates Joules heating, or heat generated while crossing a current . . . it only costs about $1 for enough silver to cover all clothing for the whole body (minus the head and hands, of course) . . .

Gold-Plated Nano-particles seek and destroy Cancer Cells

February 06, 2015 — “It’s colloidal chemistry. By themselves, gold and iron-oxide alloys are benign and inert, and the infrared light is low-power heating,” said Carl Batt, Cornell’s Liberty Hyde Bailey Professor of Food Science and the senior author on the paper. “But put these inert alloys together, attach an antibody to guide it to the right target, zap it with infrared light and the cancer cells die. The cells only need to be heated up a few degrees to die” . . . By adding the magnetic iron oxide particles to the gold, doctors watching MRI and CT scanners can follow along the trail of this nano-sized crew to its target.

When a near-infrared laser is used, the light penetrates deep into the tissue, heating the nano-particle to about 120 degrees Fahrenheit—an ample temperature to kill many targeted cancer cells. This results in a threefold increase in killing cancer cells and a substantial tumor reduction within 30 days, according to Kirui . . . Full story: kingworldnews.com


Samsung rejects Concern over ‘Orwellian’ Privacy Policy

February 9, 2015 — Users of Samsung’s Smart TV devices have raised concerns over the device’s privacy policy, which seems to suggest that they should not discuss any sensitive topics in their living room while the television is plugged in. The warning relates to the product line’s voice recognition services, which lets users control their television with voice commands input through a microphone on the set’s remote control.

Samsung privacy policy warns: “Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party through your use of voice recognition.” The third-party mentioned is thought to be Massachusetts-based voice recognition company Nuance, which provides the technology to Samsung as a white-label service . . .

Zechariah Chapter Nine

 

Zechariah chapters 9 to 14 foretell the future destiny of the people of the Old Covenant and state how the King of Israel, “despised and rejected,” yields to humiliating and cruel martyrdom by His own people yet overcomes “not by might, nor by power, but by the Spirit of the Lord of hosts,” attracting multitudes to His side in penitence and love, and establishing “His dominion from sea to sea, and from the River Euphrates to the ends of the Earth” (Zechariah 4:6; 9:10). “Caiaphas the high priest said: It is expedient for us that one Man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. He said this not of his own initiative, but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation, and not for that nation only, but to gather into one all the scattered children of God [both Israelites and Gentiles]. And from that day on the Jews laid plans to murder Him” (John 11:49-53).

“All the people said, His blood be upon us and upon our children” (Matthew 27:25); and still they are paying “life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, and foot for foot—seven times more” under their Law (Deuteronomy 19:21; Leviticus 26:14-46). And according to Esau’s oath (Genesis 27:41) armies of the Gentile vassal states of the Jews’ City of London that rules the world for the Vatican, which is itself Jewish (Revelation 2:9; 3:9) are murdering Israelites throughout Muslim lands of the ancient Assyrian Empire—in Iraq, Iran, Arabia, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, and also in the west. “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Hebrews 10:31).

Clarifying the language of our post eighteenth century English Bibles Brother Branham said, “Jew just is a name that was give to them after they left, I believe, Nebuchadnezzar over, begin to call them Jews first because the tribe of Judah was taken then and given a name of Jew. Now . . . Because they came down from Judea and they got the name of Jew. But now, Israel is different. Israel and Jew is altogether different. . . Every Jew isn’t an Israelite. No, he’s just a Jew. . .” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 474:3-4).

At his surrender in 1781 General Cornwallis informed General George Washington, “a holy war will now begin on America, and when it is ended America will be supposedly the citadel of freedom, but her millions will unknowingly be loyal subjects to the Crown.” NOT the British monarchy but the “Crown” of the Jews’ City of London which now rules the United States. “Your churches will be used to teach the Jews’ religion and in less than two hundred years the whole nation will be working for divine world government. That government that they believe to be divine will be the British Empire. All religions will be permeated with Judaism without even being noticed by the masses, and they will all be under the invisible all-seeing eye of the Grand Architect of Freemasonry” (The Legions of Satan, by Jonathan Williams; quoted by Senator Joseph McCarthy in his 1956 speech, “George Washington’s Surrender“). Cornwallis was referring to the Talmudic objective of totalitarian Jewish one world government espoused by the one world religion of Masonry that admits men of all religious persuasions; the one world philosophy of Judaeo-Communism that Jesus called “Laodicea” has since permeated all religions.

Jesus said, “unless those days [of tribulation following the destruction of Jerusalem] are shortened, there should be no flesh saved [for the translation]: but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened [by the revelation of Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming and the translation]. Then [in the days of His ‘parousia’] if any man says to you, Look, Christ is over here, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs [NOT false Jesus’ but false anointed ones], and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that IF it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Matthew 24:22-24).

By the grace of God His elect cannot be deceived on the revealed Word of God of which they are written epistles. But the modern word “Jew” that first entered your Bible in the eighteenth century with a meaning contrary to the two words it has replaced has ensured “all religions [including Islam] have been permeated with Judaism without even being noticed by the masses, and they are all under the invisible all-seeing eye of the Grand Architect of Freemasonry.” The NON-elect have been deceived into believing “Jesus was a Jew,” which is blasphemy, and that “Jews are God’s chosen people” when God “put enmity” between their forebears and Adam’s race (Genesis 3:15) and charged Moses and the Israelites to “utterly destroy” them whenever they were found in the land of the Covenant (Deuteronomy 7:2; 20:16-17; Genesis 4:14). Today Jews are a mostly non-Semitic people with no history in the Middle East. And yes, the vast majority in the circle of this Message is deceived and false anointed ones invite antichrist Talmudic rabbis into their pulpits. Cornwallis was referring to the “strong delusion to believe Satan’s lie” and unite with the Judaeo-Roman church to bring an unscriptural false peace on earth before the millennium, and “be damned for not believing the truth” (II Thessalonians 2:7-12; Revelation 13:14).

Pharisaism is called Judaism today. When the legalist hypocrites of Jesus’ day saw His miracles “they took counsel how they might destroy Him. But Jesus knowing this withdrew Himself. Many followed Him, and He healed them all and charged them not to make Him known, that Isaiah’s prophecy might be fulfilled: Behold My Servant, whom I uphold; My chosen, in whom My soul delights; I have put My Spirit upon Him: He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles. He will not cry, nor lift up His voice, nor cause it to be heard in the street. A bruised reed He will not break and the smoking flax He will not quench: He will bring forth justice in agreement with truth. He will not fail nor be discouraged, till He has established justice in the Earth, and [Gentiles in] distant lands will await His teaching” (Matthew 12:1-21; Isaiah 42:1-4).

As we reflect on the past we see these chapters place prophecy in the context of history. Zechariah chapter nine foretold the Syrian conquests of Alexander the Great (356-323BC) over a century beforehand, while during the Babylonian Captivity Daniel 8:5-8 foretold the rise of the Persian world power, its defeat by the rising Greco-Macedonian Empire and its conquest by Rome. After the battle of Issus in 333BC Alexander captured Damascus, which Darius had chosen as the strong depository of his wealth, and this opened all Coele Syria, “the land of Hadrach,” a prolongation of the Jordan valley between the Lebanon ranges. In 331BC he finally defeated Darius, and in 330 he burned Persepolis, the Persian capital. Thereafter Zechariah covers the Lord’s intervention whereby Jerusalem and Judah found favour in the eyes of this great warrior king who conquered the known world by might of arms and blood, then he turns abruptly to another Warrior King who is to conquer by humility shed and His own Blood for many for the remission of sins, and deliver Jerusalem by peace He will restore the Kingdom to Israel with universal dominion.

Zechariah 9:1-8, “The burden of the Lord’s wrath will settle permanently upon the land of Hadrach and Damascus [until Syria is utterly prostrate, which was fulfilled under Alexander], for the Lord’s providence extends over the whole earth as well as all the tribes of Israel; and on Hamath which borders thereon, and on Tyre with Sidon [lying in the conqueror’s way on his march along the Mediterranean to Egypt], because it is shrewd and wise in its own eyes. [On expressing his wish to sacrifice in Hercules’ temple in New Tyre on the island, she showed her wisdom in sending Alexander a golden crown, and replying that the true and ancient temple of Hercules was at Old Tyre on the mainland]. Tyre had the greatest confidence owing to her insular position, an immense apparently impregnable double sea-wall and abundant provisions, and heaped up silver like dust, and gold as the dirt of the streets. Yet with all her wisdom she cannot avert her doom: the Lord will dispossess her and smite her bulwark in the sea; and she shall be consumed by fire.”

Though without a navy, by incredible labor Alexander constructed a mole of the ruins of Old Tyre from the shore to the island, and, after a seven months’ siege, took the city by storm, slew about eight thousand with the sword, enslaved thirteen thousand, crucified two thousand, and razed the city.

The Prophet now turns to the Philistines on the coast. “Ashkelon shall see it, and be afraid; Gaza also sees, and shall writhe in anguish; and Ekron [the northernmost Philistine city] sees and fears, because her expectation [that Tyre would withstand Alexander, and so check his progress southward through Philistia to Egypt] will be confounded and put to shame; and the king shall perish from Gaza [after a two month’s siege, Gaza was taken by Alexander, ten thousand of its inhabitants slain, and the rest sold as slaves. Betis her vassal “king” was bound to a chariot by thongs thrust through the soles of his feet and dragged round the city], and Ashkelon shall not be inhabited.”

“Ashdod will lose its native population and be inhabited by a mongrel race and I will end all that constitutes the pride of the Philistines [i.e. the five originally Canaanite cities which they conquered. The Philistines were a Hamitic people out of Philistim, great-grandson of Mizraim (Genesis 10:14)]. And I will take the blood of idolatry out of her mouth, and the abominable sacrifices from between her teeth: but the remnant [like Hadrach, Damascus, and Tyre, etc.,] will worship the God of Israel, and the Philistine princes with their respective states shall share equally in the communion of Israel as if they were among the “governors” of states “in Judah,” and the [Serpent’s seed of] Ekron shall be like the Jebusites [the original Serpent’s seed inhabitants of Jerusalem who were incorporated with the Israelites but as bond-servants and tributaries (Genesis 9:27; I Kings 9:20-21). The land of the Philistines was allotted to Judah, but was never permanently occupied]”.

Not only will a judgment fall upon the neighbouring heathen, and a remnant of them be converted, but “I will encamp about My house [Israel (Zechariah 9:8) as a guard against] the expedition of Alexander marching to and fro]. When advancing against Jerusalem, Alexander was arrested by a dream, so that neither in “passing by” to Egypt, nor in “returning,” did he injure the Judeans, but conferred on them great privileges. Josephus (Antiquities of the Jews, XI.8.4-7) accounts for this remarkable fact, by the high priest in his ritual robes, followed by a train of priests and citizens arrayed in white going forth to meet him; Alexander was so impressed by the spectacle that he did reverence to the holy Name on the high priest’s mitre; and when Parmenio expressed surprise at the act, he replied that he had seen in a vision at Dios in Macedonia, the God whom Jaddua the high priest represented, who encouraged him to cross over into Asia and promised him success. Afterwards he entered into the city, offered sacrifice, and heard a recital of the prophecies of Daniel (7:6; 8:3-8, 20-22; 11:1-4) which foretold his victory, in consequence of which he bestowed important privileges on the Judeans”.

Through Alexander the Lord began to bring Judah’s foes to judgment. His career exhibited a secular preparation for the new and final form of the kingdom of God on Earth. The aims and results of Alexander’s conquests were far beyond any contemplated by himself even in the most extensive of his far-reaching views. He tore down what others might build up. The humiliation of the Syrian powers and provinces was preliminary to their conversion to the true faith. Their cruel and debasing worship disappeared, the remnant became incorporated within the Christian Church, and it was in Antioch that the disciples were first called Christians after the Lord’s ascension (Acts 11:26).

The prophet next passes from the immediate future to the final deliverance and millennium to come and makes a sudden transition to the coming of King Messiah (Isaiah 60:18). “And no oppressor shall pass through them any more: for now I have seen with My eyes how Judah was oppressed by her foes.”

The parenthesis of Zechariah 9:9-10 contains a prophecy: “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, your own King, [the promised Messiah]; He comes to you just and having salvation in Himself for you; humble and riding upon an ass and upon a colt the she-asses foal. And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the war horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and He shall speak peace to the Gentiles: and His dominion will be from sea to sea, and from the River Euphrates to the ends of the Earth”.

The “daughter of Zion” is always Christ’s Bride, while the “daughter of Jerusalem” is the 144,000 elect Israelites. The horse is a symbol of war and judgment while the ass is a symbol of peace. As the first fruit of the harvest of souls Jesus Messiah was waved before the Lord and adjudged to be just as vindicated by His resurrection for our justification, for if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy (Leviticus 23:10-14; Romans 4:25; I Corinthians 15:20-23; II Corinthians 5:14-21). The King is “saved” not for His own sake but for His people, and the blessing therefore is not personal, but extends to His Bride and to all of His subjects. Our King triumphs through suffering and His crown springs out of His cross. He is afflicted and bowed by outward circumstances and inwardly bowed in that He is meek, patient and lowly. That this King should ride not upon a horse but upon the untrained foal of an ass indicates how far He was from worldly splendour and would conquer the world through suffering and dying, then rise from lowliness to might and glory, uniting in Himself the extremes of majesty and humiliation as foreshadowed in David.

Not only will this King extend His reign by peaceful methods, but all the instruments of war will be “cut off” from His people, “and He will speak peace to the Gentiles.” Not that He will teach or command peace, but by the ‘third pull’ of revelation He will speak peace to the elect of all nations of Adam’s race “from sea to sea, and from the River Euphrates to the ends of the Earth”—a universal Kingdom (Psalm 72; Micah 5:5).

What other kings accomplish by force, Zion’s King effects without weapons or armies. He told Pilate, “My Kingdom is not of this world: if My Kingdom were of this world, then My servants would fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but at this time My Kingdom is not from here”.

“Surprised, Pilate responded: So you are a king? Jesus answered: You say that I am a king. I was born for this purpose, and for this cause I have come into the world, to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice” (John 18:36-37).

Truth and revealed truth is the only weapon this Conqueror employs, yet with it He has built the mightiest empire the world has ever seen, “a Kingdom, which will never be destroyed: and the Kingdom will not be left to other people, but it will break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever” (Daniel 2:44).

Luke 23:38, “And a superscription also was written over Him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JUDEANS,” bearing witness that despite their unbelief He was their King, and King also of the Gentiles.

Two thousand years have passed since organizational clerics blinded the Israel nation for whom Messiah was the central thought of Scripture from the bloody skins of lambs slain in Eden until with measured determination they murdered God’s Messiah. The history of Israel may be thus seen to constitute successive steps in the development of God’s purpose to bring many sons to glory through a captain of salvation, so “the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of [all] prophecy” from Adam to William Branham and the two Hebrew prophets yet to witness to Israel. In preparation for their ministry in the Spirit and power of Moses and Elijah we find organizational clerics have blinded the Gentiles that Paul’s prophecy might be fulfilled, “Note the kindness and severity of God; severity towards those who have fallen; but towards you kindness, provided you continue in His kindness; otherwise you too will be cut off. . . Lest you be wise in your own conceits, I want you to understand this mystery, that Spiritual blindness has come over the Israel nation, until the full number of elect Gentiles have come into the Kingdom” (Romans 11:22, 25).

In Matthew 21:1-11, “When Jesus drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives, He sent two disciples, saying to them, Go into the village opposite and as you enter you will find an ass tied, and a colt with her: untie them and bring them to Me. If anyone says anything to you, say: The Lord has need of them; and he will send them immediately. This was done so that the Words of the prophet might be fulfilled”:

“Tell the daughter of Zion, Behold, your King is coming to you, humbly riding on an ass, a colt the foal of a she-ass. The disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them; they brought the animals to Him and threw their garments over the colt, and he sat thereon. Many of the great multitude spread their garments on the road while others cut branches from the trees and strewed them on the way. And the crowds surged ahead and pressed along behind, shouting, Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest”! And when He entered Jerusalem, all the city was agitated, saying: Who is this? And the crowds said: This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee”.

“The common people heard Him gladly” whereas the leaders and educated folk whose theologians could recite Moses and the prophets from memory could not recognize the Scripture being fulfilled before their eyes. People who had gathered in Jerusalem from throughout the Roman Empire to attend the feast of Unleavened Bread and Passover could not recognize their day and its Message coming as the real Passover Lamb according to the prophecy of Zechariah 9:9-10. Their false anointed ministers were so confident in manmade theology they would crucify Jesus Messiah five days thence on the hour, day, week, month and year and in the place foretold by Moses (Exodus 12:3-6; Deuteronomy 16:5-6), Nehemiah 2:1-8, and Daniel 9:25-26.

These people had certainly learned the letter of God’s Word, but teaching for doctrine the commandments of men made it of no effect. The New Testament theologians having followed the same course, fail to recognize that since the revelation of the Seven Seals we now have the perfect interpretation of God’s Word so that Christ is no longer a Mediator excusing denominational error, and almost two billion souls who claim to be Christians are crucifying to themselves the Son of God afresh on a cross of man-made creed and tradition and know it not.

History was in the making, prophecy was being fulfilled, and salvation for the world was riding on a donkey. This was the great day for which all of the prophets and saints had yearned. This was the hope of the righteous, many of whom had been martyred for their faith. Three days hence Jesus would shout, “Oy vey to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and anise and cumin, and have omitted the weightier aspects of the Law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these you ought to have done without neglecting the others. You blind guides strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!”

“Oy vey to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the plate, but inside they are full of extortion and greed. You blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and plate so that the outside may be clean as well. Oy vey to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you resemble whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness within. So you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.”

“Oy vey to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, saying, Had we lived in the days of our fathers we would not have participated in shedding the blood of the prophets.”

“Thus you witness against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. Fill up the measure of your fathers. You serpents, you progeny of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell? Therefore I [will] send you prophets and wise men and scribes, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from town to town: that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of innocent Abel to the blood of Zacharias son of Barachiah, whom you slew between the temple and the altar. I assure you, that all these things shall come upon this [Serpent’s seed] generation [of Cain’s lineage].”

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, killing the prophets and stoning those who are sent to you! How often have I wanted to gather your children together as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not! Behold, your house is left forsaken and desolate [and is no longer God’s House]. For I tell you, You will not see Me again, till you say, Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord” (Matthew 23:23-39).

Whereas everyone in Jerusalem should have been joyously shouting: “Hosanna to Messiah who comes in the Name of the Lord,” the mindless mob sought approval from renowned men who were critics. Howbeit God deals with individuals one-on-one, and true believers are His “little flock” disrespected and scorned by society.

As the Israelites and proselytes had gathered to Jerusalem for the feast of Unleavened Bread, Christ’s end-time Bride has gathered for the holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel’s Pentecostal feast that types the end of the Gentile dispensation (Leviticus 23:16-21). Ours is a seven-course Spiritual feast of the fullness of the Word unveiled by the Seven Seals of Revelation that finish the mystery of God:

They’ve come from the East and West,
They’ve come from the lands afar,
to feast with our King, to dine as His guests;
How blessed these pilgrims are!
Beholding His hallowed face
Aglow with love Divine;
Blest partakers of His grace,
as gems in His crown will shine.

sign of Christ's parousia ComingBrother Branham referred to the Pillar of Cloud that manifest over Arizona on February 28, 1963 shown here and on the index page of the Church Website as the sign of Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming (Revelation 1:7, 14; Daniel 7:9; Matthew 26:64; Acts 1:9-11). Then on March 8, 1963 there was a blast of thunder when the Lamb opened one of the Seals (Revelation 6:1), and “The Lord Himself descended from heaven with a Shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trump of God” (I Thessalonians 4:16). Brother Branham said: “He does all three as He descends.” We have this account of the second or ‘parousia’ Coming of Christ the Archangel in Revelation 10:1-7: “I . . . (place your name here as throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ’s end-time Bride) . . . saw another mighty Angel come down from heaven clothed with a cloud: and the rainbow was upon His head [showing Him to be the Angel of the Covenant from Genesis to Revelation] . . .and He had a little Book open in His hand: [it was closed when He claimed it in Revelation 5:7]; and He set His right foot in judgment on [Rome, the beast from] the Sea, and His left foot on [the United States, the beast from] the Earth. And cried with a loud voice as when a lion roars: and after He had cried the seven thunders uttered their voices”.

The full adoption or bodily redemption had been delayed for two thousand years while Christ interceded for the imperfect revelation of the Church Age saints who had only PART-Word so long as the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals. However when the last saint predestinated to the Laodicean Church Age was born-again Christ claimed the Book; Redemption was over and He announced “there should be time [or delay] no longer.” Now redemption was to be revealed, namely who was redeemed in each Age and how they were redeemed. Thus, “In the days of the voice of the seventh angel when He shall begin to sound his Message, the mystery God has already declared to His servants the prophets should be finished”.

On March 8 1963 at the opening of the First Seal Brother Branham was caught up from Sunset Mountain into a constellation of angels and told to return to Jeffersonville where Jesus would reveal the mysteries of the seven thunders of Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals.

In Luke 17:28-30 Jesus said the conditions of the days of Noah and the days of Lot would repeat in the day when the Son of man was revealed. And as it was in the days of Noah we live in a day of great scientific achievements, engineering projects, immorality, violence and miscegenation between the seed of the Serpent and the seed of Adam now glorified as ‘multiculturalism.’ As Enoch was called out from the seventh generation from the first Adam and translated, we have been called out from the seventh generation of the last Adam and as he was changed in the atoms and translated we await our body change and translation. The wicked abominations of the days of Lot have repeated with homosexuality rampant, and three created men visited Abraham’s group who were separated from Sodom. Two, like Billy Graham and Oral Roberts, preached a basic salvation Message to the Churches in Sodom, while one veiled God, who identified His Presence as the Word by “discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). The same sign vindicated Him veiled behind the virgin-born flesh of Jesus Messiah and revealed “Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8) veiled behind the flesh of Brother Branham, a sinner saved by grace in whose ministry the dead were raised, sight restored to the blind, demons cast out and cripples made whole.

God has fulfilled a multitude of Scriptural signs and prophecies in this our day and the denominational people are neither anticipating nor are they interested to learn of these promises written in their own Bibles. Their ministers are too busy with social welfare programs to bother with the present Truth—what Jesus is doing now. Zechariah 9:9-10 has repeated: Christ has returned, performing the same miracles, more abundantly before larger crowds among the Gentile nations than He did in the days of His flesh. He did not return “lowly, riding on an ass’ colt,” but veiled behind a humble uneducated man; and as Jesus indicted the Pharisees and the Israel nation Brother Branham indicted and called the wise and foolish virgin out from the Gentile denominations and warned of earthquakes splitting open the Earth, which we will discuss in Zechariah 14.

The last seven verses, which for us are purely historic, prophecy the warlike period of the Maccabees with the promise of deliverance to be accomplished by conflict—the Lord fighting from heaven for the Covenant people, granting them victory and general prosperity. As the four books of the Maccabees are not canonical you will probably not be too familiar with them unless you read the Apocrypha in the Septuagint or a Judaeo-Roman Catholic Bible. They began with a few personal followers, and they ended with a strong and well-organized nation. The struggle lasted for a quarter of a century (168 – 143BC), and notwithstanding the unequal resources of the combatants. The Lord of Hosts made feeble Jews like the sword of a hero, while the mailed warriors of Syria were trodden down like the small stones of a sling.

Zechariah 9:11-17, “As for you also [Ephraim, Judah and Zion, despite your forlorn condition I have mercy in store] for the sake of your Covenant-blood I have sent forth your prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water [an allusion to Joseph signifying the general distress under the Seleucid dominion]. Return to the [inaccessible] strong hold [of security], you prisoners of hope [in the Covenant]: even today do I declare that I will repay double the prosperity you formerly enjoyed; when I tread the bow of Judah for Me, and fill the bow with [the arrow of] Ephraim, and stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece [i.e. the Seleucid successor to the Greek Empire in Syria], and made you as the sword of a mighty man. And the Lord shall appear above them [because He fights from heaven on their behalf], and His arrow shall go forth as the lightning [flashing instantaneous destruction to the foe]: and the Lord God shall blow the trumpet, and shall go forth like [the violent desert] storms of the South. The Lord of hosts shall protect them [as a shield]; and they shall devour [as a lion who eats the flesh and drinks the blood of his victim], and subdue the enemy [contemptuously likened to sling stones or pebbles from the brook]; and they shall drink, and make a noise as through wine; and they shall be filled like bowls [used by priests to catch the blood of a sacrifice sprinkled on] the corners [and horns] of the altar [indicating this is a holy war]. And the Lord their God shall save them in that day as the flock of His people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, which sparkle as an ensign upon His land. For how great is His goodness, and the beauty which He bestows! Corn shall make the young men cheerful, and new wine the maids [indicative of abundance]”. nl875.htm

Zechariah Chapters Seven and Eight

Zechariah Chapters Seven and EightAndroid Phone

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 874

“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 to see you.

Kindly remember Pastor Gulam Masih in your prayers. His liver is not working, his stomach is swollen and doctors in Pakistan have declined to admit him to hospital, so this is not a “want” but a “need” that only Jehovah Rapha can provide.

Newsletter 870 briefly mentioned tithing. One Brother reasoned without Scriptural support that tithing is fulfilled and is not a New Testament obligation, adding that there is no stipulation as to the amount to tithe. However, the word tithe means “one tenth.” As of old Christians are bound to tithe 10% of their increase to the pastor (Genesis 14:18-20; Luke 10:7; I Corinthians 9:9; I Timothy 1:5). Your increase is your net income from wages, salaries, inheritance or pension after taxes; for businesses after deducting expenses such as rent, materials and wages.

Another Brother was supporting a political party, that is, “the world” (James 4:4) with God’s money when we are not given discretion to spend His tithe which is to provide for the pastor who is obligated to tithe from his increase to ministers who provide his Spiritual sustenance. The Holy Spirit showed these things to those Brethren. We are to pay God’s tithe first and meet debt, family and other responsibilities from the remaining 90%.

In our study today we will advance to “Zechariah Chapters Seven and Eight” from the viewpoint of the present. The Lord was disciplining those who had returned to Judah from Babylon for reasoning against His revealed Word by human wisdom, which is the mark of the beast. The priests and the people were observing fasts and conventions never ordained by God as many ministers and brethren in the circle of this Message celebrate Easter and Christian which are not “the foundation of the apostles and prophets” but pagan Babylonian feasts dressed in Christian trappings. God requires heartfelt obedience of faith, not tradition. These chapters trace the history of the Judeans and their dispersion under the “times of the Gentiles” through disobedience to His strict word.

Finally, Zechariah promises blessings and prosperity upon the whole house of Israel when they return from exile in Daniel’s Seventieth Week, and in the millennium.

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

Tsunami Animation: Cascadia 1700

Cascadia subduction, Canada-USA

January 26, 2015 — Just before midnight on January 27, 1700 a tsunami struck the coasts of Japan without warning since no one in Japan felt the earthquake that must have caused it. Nearly 300 years later scientists and historians in Japan and the United States solved the mystery of what caused this “orphan tsunami” through careful analysis of historical records in Japan as well as oral histories of Native Americans, sediment deposits, and ghost forests of drowned trees in the Pacific Northwest of North America, a region known as Cascadia. They learned that this geologically active region, the Cascadia Subduction Zone, not only hosts erupting volcanoes but also produces megathrust earthquakes capable of generating devastating, ocean-crossing tsunamis. By comparing the tree rings of dead trees with those still living they could tell when the last of these great earthquakes struck the region. The trees all died in the winter of 1699-1700 when the coasts of northern California, Oregon, and Washington suddenly dropped 1-2 m (3-6 ft), flooding them with seawater. That much motion over such a large area requires a very large earthquake to explain it—perhaps as large as 9.2 magnitude, comparable to the Great Alaska Earthquake of 1964 [that Brother Branham spoke three days beforehand]. Its tsunami would cross the Pacific Ocean and reach Japan in about 9 hours, so the earthquake must have occurred around 9 o’clock at night in Cascadia on January 26, 1700 (05:00 January 27 UTC).

This animation shows how that tsunami may have crossed the Pacific Ocean in 1700, followed by maps of calculated maximum wave heights first on the open ocean and then at coastlines as determined by PTWC’s forecast model. It is based on the maximum estimated earthquake magnitude, 9.2. Such an earthquake would have ruptured the earth along the entire length of the 1,000 km (600 mile)-long fault of the Cascadia Subduction Zone and severe shaking could have lasted for 5 minutes or longer.

Comment: Brother Branham prophesied that the tsunami generated by the sinking of Los Angeles will sweep the world and be far more devastating than this USGS video simulation (Luke 21:25-27; Revelation 16:18).

Ukrainian Government: ‘No Russian Troops are fighting against Us.’ Sanctions against Russia based on Falsehoods

January 31, 2015 — Ukraine’s top general is contradicting allegations by the Obama Administration and by his own Ukrainian Government, by saying that no Russian troops are fighting against the Ukrainian Government’s forces in the formerly Ukrainian, now separatist, area, where the Ukrainian civil war is being waged. Here is a screen-print of a Google-Chrome auto-translation of that statement:

The Chief of Staff of Ukraine’s Armed Forces, General Viktor Muzhenko, is saying, in that news-report, which is dated on Thursday January 29th, that the only Russian citizens who are fighting in the contested region, are residents in that region, or of Ukraine, and also some Russian citizens (and this does not deny that perhaps some of other countries’ citizens are fighting there, inasmuch as American mercenaries have already been noted to have been participating on the Ukrainian Government’s side), who ‘are members of illegal armed groups,’ meaning fighters unpaid by any government, but just ‘individual citizens’. General Muzhenko also says, emphatically, that the ‘Ukrainian army is not fighting with the regular units of the Russian army.’

In other words: He is explicitly and clearly denying the very basis for the EU’s sanctions against Russia, and for the US’s sanctions against Russia: all of the sanctions against Russia are based on the falsehood that Ukraine is fighting against ‘the regular units of the Russian army’ i.e., against the Russian-Government-controlled-and-trained fighting forces.

The allegation to the effect that Ukraine is instead fighting against ‘regular units of the Russian army’ is the allegation that Vladimir Putin’s Russia has invaded Ukraine, and the sole basis for economic sanctions now in force against Russia.

Those sanctions should therefore be immediately removed, with apology, and compensation being paid to all individuals who have been suffering them; and it is therefore incumbent upon the Russian Government to pursue, through all legally available channels, restitution, plus damages, against the perpetrators of that dangerous fraud and the news reports have already made clear precisely whom those persons are, who have asserted, as public officials, what can only be considered to be major libel.

Otherwise, Ukraine’s top general should be fired, for asserting what he has just asserted.

If what General Muzhenko says is true, then he is a hero for having risked his entire career by having gone public with this courageous statement. And, if what he says is false, then he has no place heading Ukraine’s military.

Investigative historian Eric Zuesse is the author, most recently, of “They’re not even close: The Democratic vs. Republican Economic Records, 1910-2010, and of CHRIST’S VENTRILOQUISTS: The Event that Created Christianity”.

Comment: According to official stats last year nearly 360,000 Ukrainians fled to Poland, in the last 30 days 17% of those within military age near Romania fled to that state. Also, the hotels near the Ukrainian border, within Romania, are now full with youthful Ukrainians. In the regions of Koniuchy and Kozowski nearly all those of military age have fled to Russia. Further, in the Ivano-Frankovski region 57% of those of military age have disappeared outside of Kievian officialdom. The cannon fodder obviously don’t relish the idea of risking their lives for self-styled home-grown, US and Israeli Jewish oligarchs.

Standing with Israel is Anti-Christian, Anti-Jewish

“Marx and Engels never tried to refute their opponents with argument. They insulted, ridiculed, derided, slandered, and traduced them, and in the use of these methods their followers are not less expert. Their polemic is directed never against the argument of the opponent, but always against his person” – Socialism. Likewise the corrupt Scofield Reference Bible.

Israeli Forces caught up in Al Qaeda’s Complex toil in both Golan and Gaza

August 28, 2014 — 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.

Personal Relationship with Jesus is dangerous says Pope

Peter's keys

December 7, 2014 — In this video you will see and hear pope Francis declare that a personal relationship with Jesus or even the thought of it, outside the control of church (obviously he means the Catholic church) is dangerous, harmful and absurd!. Traditional Catholic teaching stresses that the ordinary man (or woman) cannot understand the Bible without the supervision or mediation of a catholic priest.

In this latest heavy-handed move he takes it a step further by saying that you can’t even hope to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ without the guidance and mediation of “the church” (obviously he means the Catholic church. The words Apostasy and Blasphemy come to mind!

This is without a doubt the starting point for something much more serious, watch, be vigilant and study the book of Revelation, particularly chapter 17 in relation to this. Full story: youtube.com

Comment: The midst of Daniel’s Seventieth Week will see this reflected in Revelation 17. This is an evidence of the coming “squeeze” that will culminate in Revelation 13:15-18. German arms sales in the Middle East, and the rise of the Roman Empire. Full story: thetrumpet.com


The Dark History of the Templars

Although the Crusaders are commonly thought to have been motivated by their deep Christian faith, the Crusades were actually wars inspired by avarice. At a time of utmost poverty and misery prevalent in the West, the attractions of the East—in particular the Muslim societies’ wealth and prosperity—played on the minds of Europeans, especially those in the [false] church. These attractions, bolstered with [perverted] Christian teachings, begot the Crusaders’ mindset, seemingly motivated by religion but actually motivated by worldly designs. This is the reason why [so-called] Christians, who had followed more or less peaceful policies in the previous 1,000 years, suddenly began to display an appetite for war—specifically the “liberation” of the holy city of Jerusalem and Palestine as a whole.

We can retrace the beginnings of the Crusades to November 1095, when Pope Urban II gathered the Council of Clermont. Three hundred members of the clergy convened under his chairmanship. The pacifist doctrines that had dominated Christendom were abandoned, laying the foundations for the conquest. At the close of the Council, Urban II announced this state of affairs in his famous speech to a congregation that comprised all social classes, demanding that Christians stop the infighting and warring among themselves. The Pope called on them—whether rich or poor, aristocrat or peasant—to unite under one banner and to free the holy land from the Muslims. To him, this was “a holy war” . . .

Comment: Protocol 13:23-24: When the King of Israel sets upon his sacred head the crown offered him by Europe he will become patriarch of the world. The indispensable victims offered by him in consequence of their suitability will never reach the number of victims offered in the course of centuries by the mania of magnificence, the emulation between the GOY governments. Our King will be in constant communion with the peoples, making to them from the tribune speeches which fame will in that same hour distribute over all the world.


Zechariah Chapters Seven and Eight

 

I contemplated bypassing Zechariah chapters seven and eight supposing this would be historical and scarcely relevant to Christ’s end-time Bride. But no, human nature does not change and Israel types the Church. Here was a moral warning, a situation akin to Laodicea wherein the prophet discerns motive and objective and brings correction. And here Zechariah declares the future universal salvation is not restricted to Israel but includes the more numerous Gentiles.

The Israelites have returned from Babylonian captivity to the land of Palestine and God’s prophets Haggai and Zechariah are attempting to encourage them—disheartened as they are by the surrounding perils and by the humble aspect of the temple—to the work of rebuilding as instructed by the Lord. In the midst of their work a delegation sent from Bethel visits to consult with the priests.

Zechariah 7:1-3, “In the fourth year of King Darius, the Word of the Lord came to Zechariah in the fourth day of the ninth month, Chisleu, when the people of Bethel had sent Sharezer and Regem-melech and their men, to entreat the favour of the Lord, and to ask the priests of the house of the Lord of hosts, and the prophets, Should we weep in the fifth month, [sanctifying] ourselves by separation [from all defilements], as we have done for so many years?”

This visitation took place two years after Zechariah had received eight major consecutive visions and a direct Word from the Lord, during which time the work of rebuilding the temple had proceeded with the promise of a speedy restoration of the ancient worship in its integrity. Now the people of Bethel who had returned from Babylon with Zerubbabel, having rebuilt their city (Ezra 2:28; Nehemiah 7:31-32) sent delegates to offer sacrifices and beseech the Lord’s favour, and to speak with the priests regarding the propriety of continuing to observe the solemn fasts, especially that commemorating Nebuchadnezzar’s razing of the city and temple on the tenth day of the fifth month.

Zechariah 7:4-7, “Then the Word of the Lord of hosts came to Zechariah, Say to all the people of the land including the priests, “When you fasted and mourned in the fifth and in the seventh month, for these seventy years, was it for Me that you fasted? Was it for Me? And when you eat and when you drink, do you not eat for yourselves and drink for yourselves? When Jerusalem was inhabited and prosperous, with her cities around her, and when the Negev desert in the South and the coastal plain of Shephelah were inhabited, the former prophets (Isaiah 1:16-29; Jeremiah 7:5, 23) warned that this [hypocritical] attitude would surely lead to ruin, as it has”.

Here Zechariah rebukes the delegation and also the priests, “for the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and the people should seek the Law at his mouth: as he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts” (Malachi 2:7) but these priests were unable to enlighten the delegates and required instruction in understanding themselves. They had become formal, and public worship had become the emptiness of mere ritual which leads to hypocrisy. The delegation was sent from the remnant of the Northern Kingdom of Israel in Bethel where the golden calves were once set up; Zechariah discerned they were still hypocrites whose prime objective was to receive priestly approval for their religious observance of man-made ritual as a mask for their disobedience. Had they obeyed the Words and warnings of God’s prophets there would have been no occasion to institute these fasts as Jerusalem and the temple would never have been destroyed (Zechariah 7:9-14). It was not sacrifice and fasting God sought, but obedience, without which their fasting was hypocrisy. The fact God was prospering construction of the new temple rising before their eyes should have caused them to rejoice, yet they were prepared to fast and mourn for the old temple destroyed eighty years beforehand.

The priests themselves needed instruction even though the fast upon which they were questioned was not a Divine appointment but had been decreed by man as was the fast of the seventh month which was observed on the anniversary of the murder of Gedaliah and his companions (Jeremiah 41:1-11). It was therefore a matter of supreme indifference to the Lord whether they observed these man-made fasts, or not, just as it was entirely a personal affair whether a man ate and drank or fasted. None of these issues was observed in service to the Lord, and construction of the new temple was progressing, so was it not hypocrisy to mourn? There was in any case only ever one compulsory fast in the ritual of the Old Testament, and that was the Day of Atonement (Leviticus 16:29), yet today the self-styled Jews observe as many as fourteen annual fasts and “by their traditions transgress and make the Commandment of God of no effect” (Matthew 15:1-9).

Denominational churches today observe annual manmade fasts, feasts and rituals like Easter and Christmas, saints’ days, catechisms, christenings, nicolaitane priesthoods and false baptisms that originated in Nimrod’s Babel with far greater zeal than they apply to “study to show themselves approved of God, as workmen with no need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth” (II Timothy 2:15). Like Zechariah in his day Brother Branham directed the heart of God’s elect to the faith once delivered to their fathers, for the Lord is not satisfied with ritual and cold lectionary preaching, which is what led Judah and more recently the churches of Laodicea into apostasy, and they “know it not.”

Paul had the same experience and declared: “The mystery of iniquity is already at work.” Galatians 4:8-11: “Formerly, when you did not know God, you were in bondage to so-called gods that did not even exist; but now when you know God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you are turning back again to the weak and beggarly rudiments to which you want to be enslaved once more? You observe days and months, festivals and years. I am afraid I have laboured over you in vain.” Paul elaborates further on the subject of manpleasing and bondage in Colossians 2:13 – 4:6: “Let no man judge you in questions of food and drink, or the observance of a festival, new moon, or sabbath-keeping, which are shadows of things to come; but the Body of Christ is the substance that cast the shadow. Let no one defraud you of salvation’s prize, insisting on self-abasement and worship of angels based upon delusional visions which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind . . .”

Those religious spirits that imprisoned the souls of the Judeans in the days of Zechariah and Paul have multitudes of souls imprisoned now.

Zechariah answers the delegates’ question and corrects the people: Zechariah 7:8-14, “And the Word of the Lord came to Zechariah, saying, Thus spoke the Lord of hosts, Render justice [based on the true facts without regard to personal considerations]; let everyone show lovingkindness [to the unfortunate] and mercy to his brother, and do not oppress the widow, the orphan, the stranger [Heb. ‘ger’], or the poor. Let none of you devise evil against his brother in your heart. But they refused to hearken, turned a rebellious shoulder and stopped their ears that they should not hear. They made their hearts like adamant, lest they should hear the Law, and the Words which the Lord of hosts has sent by His Spirit through the former prophets. Therefore great wrath came from the Lord of hosts. And it came to pass, that as He called out and they did not hear, so they call out and I do not hear, says the Lord of hosts; and I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations whom they knew not. Thus the land they left was desolate, so that no one even traveled through it: and the pleasant land was made desolate”.

Zechariah told the people his instructions were not his personal understanding but “the Word of the Lord.” Overstrained devotion to ritual observances misleads men to lay stress upon mint, anise, and cumin—legalism in dress and conduct rather than judgment and mercy—hence he exposed the hollowness of mere outward fastings then reminded them that the cause of their fathers’ ruin was not inattention to ceremonial observances, but disregard to the commonsense duties of justice and humanity. The Lord requires obedience rather than sacrifice and the obstinate disobedience of Jewry today is evident in their determination to build another temple at Jerusalem. But the disobedience of professed Christians in their adamant refusal to hear the Words of the former prophets, and the vindicated “Elijah” of this day whose ministry revealed “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever—in the office of Son of man discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart. . . as it was in the days of Lot,” will cause Him to “smite the Earth with a curse” and they will perish in the great tribulation (Malachi 4:5-6; Luke 17:28-30; Hebrews 13:8; 4:12).

Isaiah 1:4-17 prophesied Judah’s rebellion, the Captivity and desolation, and as Jesus prophesied the moral depravity and religious duplicity of modern Jerusalem (Revelation 11:8), Isaiah also compared Judah to Sodom: “Of what significance is the multitude of your sacrifices to Me? says the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams and with the fat of your fatted calves; I do not delight in the blood of bulls, or lambs, or he-goats. When you come to appear in My Presence, who required you to trample My courts with these offerings? Bring no more vain offerings; incense is an abomination to Me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I am weary of bearing them. Your new moons and your appointed feasts My soul hates: they have become a burden; I am weary of bearing them. When you spread forth your hands [in supplication] I will hide My eyes from you: even though you make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood”.

The Lord was fed up with the religious hypocrisy of the Judeans. And today He is similarly vexed with denominational worshippers. Jesus has cried out to this last age, “You have the Word. You have more Bibles than ever, but you are not doing anything about the Word except dividing and hacking it into pieces, taking what you want and leaving out what you don’t want. You are not interested in LIVING it, but debating it. I would sooner you were cold or hot. If you were cold and rejected it, I could stand that. If you would get white hot to know its truth and live it, I would praise you for that. But when you simply take My Word and don’t honor it, I in return must refuse to honor you. I will spue you out for you nauseate Me” (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 340:3). Therefore the Lord must be grieved with worshippers in the denominations that have arisen in the circle of this Message, whose people know the rhema but not the Logos of the Message and parrot, “The Prophet said”! “The Prophet said”! Not understanding what he MEANT.

Isaiah alludes to God’s promise of redemption from sin by the Blood of the Lamb under the New Testament dispensation (Revelation 7:14): “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your ways from before My eyes; cease from evil; learn to do good; seek justice, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land: but if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword: for the mouth of the Lord has spoken”.

Scarlet was a fast colour which neither dew nor rain nor washing would remove; hence it is used as a metaphor for the fixedness and permanency of sins in the heart of man. No human means will wash them out. No effort of man, no external rites, no tears, no sacrifice, no prayers are of themselves sufficient to wash away that stain.

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the Blood of Jesus.
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Oh, precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow.
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the Blood of Jesus!

Malachi was another straight-talking prophet: “A son honours his father, and a servant his master. If I then am a father, where is My honour? And if I am a master, where is My fear? says the Lord of hosts to you, O priests, who despise My Name. You say, How have we despised Your Name? By offering polluted food upon My altar. And you say, How have we polluted You? By thinking that the table of the Lord may be held in contempt: when you offer blind animals in sacrifice, is that not evil? And when you offer the lame and the sick, is that not evil? Present that to your [heathen Persian] governor; will he be pleased with you, and show you favour? asks the Lord of hosts. And now, entreat the favour of God, that He may be gracious to us. With such a gift in your hand, will He show favour to any of you, says the Lord of hosts” (Malachi 1:6-9).

That dilatory spirit on the Judeans in the days of Malachi led the Jewish church to crucify the Son of Man four hundred years thence; the same spirit today is leading the Gentile churches to crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh.

We have to say the right thing to God, which means we must have His mind in us. We need to distinguish and correctly place the dispensations of Son of man, Son of God, Son of man, and Son of David if we are to recognize our day and it’s Message. How can we call upon Him if we do not know whether He is working in the Office of Prophet, Priest, or King, as typed in the Old Testament? Brother Branham said, “Jesus, His Name on earth was Redeemer, Jesus. When He was on earth, He was the Redeemer; that’s true. But when He conquered death and hell, and overcome them, and ascended on high, He received a new Name. That’s the reason they holler the way they do and don’t get nothing; it’ll be revealed in the thunders. See” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 158:3)?

Zechariah had rebuked the people for their formalistic self-works that brought “great wrath from the Lord of hosts” as the dreadful consequence of disobedience through carnal reasoning against the revealed Word of God, since perpetuated in the Babylonian Talmud by recalcitrant Jews. God did not want them to abandon the activities ordained in His Word but to align their hearts to His revealed will, and as Isaiah said: if when reasoning is concluded they submit to Him, by grace through faith He will transform their desires into the substance of things hoped for. He does not want you to try your best to obey His Word but to trust, obey, and yield soul, spirit and body to Him. There is nothing man can of himself do for the Lord. He wants the preeminence to live through you and accomplish for you. This alone will bring the Token on display whereby His Life is “known and read of all men”.

After urging the Israelites to obedience by the fate of their fathers, Zechariah in chapter eight urges them to obedience by promises of coming prosperity vouchsafed by a decalogue of “Thus saith the Lords.” Naturally, the promises pertain to the ongoing restoration of the nation; spiritually they will come to pass “in the last days” or Messianic age of redemption and completion when the Kingdom is extended to we Gentiles.

Zechariah 8:1-8, Again the Word of the Lord of hosts came to me, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; I am jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and with great fury [against her oppressors] I am jealous for her. Thus saith the Lord; I am returned to Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called the city of Truth; and the mountain of the Lord of hosts (Isaiah 2:2-3) the holy mountain” (Jeremiah 31:23).

The glory of the Lord departed the Temple when Jerusalem yielded to her foes (Ezekiel 11:23). His absence had caused all of Israel’s woes and His return is the one sure pledge of permanent restoration (Psalm 46). The beginning and indispensable condition of all true prosperity is the Presence of the Lord. Now He has decreed His determination to return to Zion, and Jerusalem was certainly the place where Truth was found for God only meets man under the blood of the lamb so that Jerusalem was then God’s only provided place of worship (Deuteronomy 16:2, 16). However the strict fulfillment of this promise must be referred to the Messianic period for the glory of the Lord never returned in the form of the Shekinah, and in the bodily form of Messiah—the Logos and Truth of God manifest (John 17:17)—His glory was despised and rejected.

The Shekinah will not return to Jerusalem until it manifests unrecognized above the Mount of Olives signifying the end of the Gentile dispensation and Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel to take residence in the millennium temple of 144,000 elect Israelites after the midst of Daniel’s Seventieth week (Ezekiel 43:1 – 48:35; Revelation 7:1-8; 14:1-5; 15:2-4; 19:1-9). Throughout the millennium, as in the renewed heavens and renewed Earth, the Shekinah will overshadow God’s dwelling place, which is New Jerusalem, His elect, called Jehovah-Shammah: “The Lord is there” (Ezekiel 48:35).

“Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Old men and old women shall again sit in the streets of Jerusalem, each with a staff in hand for very age. And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in its streets”.

The future restoration of Israel is portrayed in all security and happiness. Long life and a numerous progeny were ordinary theocratic blessings as temporal rewards for obedience (Exodus 20:12; Deuteronomy 7:13-14).

“Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Because this will appear in the eyes of the remnant of this people in those days so difficult as to be incredible, should it be unbelievable in My eyes also that I should be able to fulfill My promises because of natural circumstances? says the Lord of hosts.” A great source of unbelief is the limitations men place upon God’s power. Faith is righteousness, sin is righteousness perverted to unbelief in God’s revealed Word.

“Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold, I will save My people [from all lands as far as the Sun shines] from the land of the sunrise and from the land of the sunset; and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: they shall be My people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness”.

Zechariah proceeds to encourage the Judeans of his day on the basis of these promises. However there is certainly no historical evidence of a general return of the diaspora to Palestine and this promise must be restricted to the time of Daniel’s Seventieth Week (Leviticus 26:40-46; 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,). Only then God will reconfirm His New Covenant (Jeremiah 31; Daniel 9:27) through the ministry of the two Hebrew witnesses promised in Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11.

Zechariah 8:9-13, “Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Let your hands be strong, you who in these days hear these Words from the mouth of the prophets, since the day that the foundation of the house of the Lord of hosts was laid, that the temple might be rebuilt. For before those days there was no wage for man, nor hire for beast; neither was there any peace for anyone going out or coming in because of the enemy: for I had set every man against his neighbour. But now I will not deal with the remnant of this people as in the former days, says the Lord of hosts. For I am sowing the seed of peace; the vine shall yield its fruit, and the ground shall give its increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things. And as you were a byword of cursing among the heathen, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so will I save you, and you shall be a blessing. Fear not, but let your hands be strong”.

To have strong hands is a metaphor meaning “to be of good courage” (Judges 7:11; II Samuel 16:21). In this instance because God is “jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and with great fury [against her oppressors] I am jealous for her” as declared by the prophets Haggai and Zechariah on “the day that the foundation of the house of the Lord of hosts was laid that the temple might be rebuilt.” Construction was disrupted by the Samaritans throughout the reigns of Cyrus and Darius, and in the beginning of the reign of Ahasuerus (Ezra 4), so there was great unemployment and insecurity both within the city and in the country where it was no longer safe to farm. But now that the Lord is bringing peace and Judah will prosper, rather than being an imprecatory formula, it will be a formula of benediction among the heathen. The distinct mention of “Judah” and “Israel” here proves there has as yet been no general return of the diaspora to Palestine as we commented in verse eight.

Zechariah 8:14-17, “For thus saith the Lord of hosts, As I thought to punish you, when your fathers provoked Me to wrath, says the Lord of hosts, and I repented not: so have I thought again in these days to do well to Jerusalem and to the house of Judah: fear not. These are the things that you shall do; Speak the truth to one another; judge with truth and justice, leading to peace in your gates. Do not devise evil in your hearts against one another, and love no false oath, for all these are things I hate, says the Lord”.

God’s Word is true, just as His threatened chastisements did not fail to befall the nation when their fathers failed to repent, so His blessings are assured so long as Judah obeys his instructions. “For all these are things I hate,” and in conformity to God’s nature, we should love what God loves and hate what God hates.

Zechariah 8:18-23, “And the Word of the Lord of hosts came to me, saying: Thus saith the Lord of hosts, The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love truth and peace”.

Here begins the second “Word of the Lord of hosts” to Zechariah (8:1). And here the prophet answers the enquiry of the delegation from Bethel in Zechariah 7:3 concerning the fast in the fifth month commemorating Nebuchadnezzar’s razing of the city and temple by a reply applying to all of their fasts—the fast of the fourth month in commemoration of the overthrow of Jerusalem (Jeremiah 39:2), the fast of the seventh month in commemoration of the murder of Gedaliah and his companions (Jeremiah 41:1-11), and the fast of the tenth month in commemoration of the commencement of the siege (Jeremiah 52:4)—are to be turned into festivals of joy because the general condition of Judah and Jerusalem will be blessed with such happiness and prosperity as to render fasting inappropriate.

On the day of Pentecost, which inaugurated “the acceptable year of the Lord” or Pentecostal jubilee and release from sin (Isaiah 61:2), ritual fasting including the Day of Atonement was done away, for by one sacrifice for sins Jesus Messiah took away the Law of the Old Testament that He may establish the New Testament of good things to come as witnessed by the baptism of the Holy Ghost which puts God’s laws into our hearts and into our minds and remits our sins so that there is no more offering for sin (Hebrews 10:7-20).

When Israel crucified Messiah the nation rejected its Atonement and the Lord ceased dealing with Israel until the Gentile dispensation is fulfilled (Romans 11:25). We will discover as we progress through Zechariah’s prophecies how the elect of Israel will truly weep, sanctifying one another by separation from all defilements, when they catch the revelation of Christ’s ‘parousia’ Coming to them after the midst of Daniel’s Seventieth Week. “And they shall look upon Him whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn” (Zechariah 12:10; Leviticus 16:29-31; Acts 1:7).

The Holy Spirit will quicken the Message that was delivered by Israel’s “Moses” and “Elijah” “to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion—to give them a laurel wreath instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called oaks of righteousness planted by the Lord for His own glory. And [in the millennium] they shall rebuild the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former devastations and renew the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations. . .” (Isaiah 61:3-4).

“And the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away” (Isaiah 35:10). Glory!

Zechariah 8:20-22, “Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Peoples shall yet come, even the inhabitants of many cities; the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to beseech the favour of the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts: I too will go. And many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem and to entreat the Lord”.

Stimulation of revelation! The Lord is emphatic, notwithstanding all past desolations, yet this will come to pass. And peoples, not merely individuals, but entire nations will embrace Christianity, although the general exhortation, “Let us go speedily” leads to the individual affirmation, I too will go.” This is vouchsafed by the preface “Thus saith the Lord.” Just before Christ’s Coming, a sense of the inadequacy of their systems of philosophy and religion grew up among the heathen which disposed them favorably towards Yahwism embraced by proselytes from various parts of Asia Minor who in turn embraced the fulfillment of its prophecies when Christianity was preached to them (Acts 2:5-12, 37-47; 10:34-48; 13:46-48; Romans 11:12-15; Isaiah 60:1-5; 66:23).

“Thus saith the Lord of hosts, In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men of all languages of the nations shall take hold of the skirt [by the fringe and blue ribbon upon it which was a distinguishing badge of an Israelite (Numbers 15:38; Deuteronomy 22:12)], saying, We will go with you [to Jerusalem]: for we have heard that God is with you”.

Prior to Calvary it was necessary for all adult males to assemble in Jerusalem for worship three times in the year: in the feast of Unleavened Bread, in the feast of Weeks, and in the feast of Tabernacles. Hence Zechariah describes the Gentile converts as seeking the Lord in Jerusalem where the blood of the Pascal lamb was shed; no Israelite could conceive of real conversion except one had come under the blood of the lamb (Deuteronomy 16:16). Thus the glorious conversions of Gentile nations throughout all Seven Church Ages of the Gentile dispensation foretold by Israel’s prophets for Israelite ears were presented throughout the Old Testament in harmony with Jewish conceptions.

Zechariah reveals that future universal salvation is not restricted to Israel alone but the nations of the Gentiles as well, and that the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel will lead to the removal of all the fasts that mourn their refusal to heed the Word of God in the past. Revelation 21:4, “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away”. nl874.htm
