Canonising Mother Teresa: The Selling of the Catholic Church
September 7, 2016 — The story of Mother Teresa of Kolkata is a story of how a modern saint is cultivated and made . . . The late Christopher Hitchens famously thought . . . This “lying, thieving Albanian dwarf” wangled her way into the corridors of power, be they hypocritical evangelicals in the United States or Third World dictators. It did not matter where the money came from.
As Douglas Robertson explained in The Independent (Sep 5), Mother Teresa “was a celebrity, with a very well managed brand.” It was a brand that took the most reactionary views of the Church out of the doctrinaire closet and onto the streets, coupled with an unmatched capacity for fund raising through the Missionaries of Charity.
Shaming leaders with sanctimonious authority, she would use poverty as her own whip of justification, her own alibi for existence. It mattered that people were poor because this provided some sense of grace—and naturally, a vital role for religious instruction. They were to suffer “like Christ’s passion.” Truly, a sadist in faith’s true employ.
Bone racking, debilitating suffering was solid gold to Mother Teresa, and could only ever be the logical outcome of a faith that insists on suffering in order to be saved. Naturally, she thrived in an environment where misery and poverty were of such levels and of such depth . . . the machine of publicity best seen in the cult of saints. Mother Teresa can now count herself in that company, her biography well and truly crafted, ego and will acknowledged. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: One cannot be a Christian without being a saint, and one cannot be a saint and a Judaeo-Roman Catholic.
Good News for the People of Europe: The TTIP is dead, Negotiations Failed
September 7, 2016 — The German Minister of Economy and Vice-Chancellor, Mr. Sigmar Gabriel . . . declared that the European Union should not submit to the demands of the United States, referring to the negotiations on the TTIP . . . negotiations failed . . . [Jewess] Mme. Merkel defended the treaty with all her heart . . . Germany and France now request a definite end to the negotiations . . . best news for Europe—and I mean the people of Europe—in recent times.
- European countries . . . taking back sovereignty from Brussels . . .
- Avoid slavery by US corporatism, financial institutions, legislation
- Continue proper policies on socio-economic, environment, food safety, agriculture,
- Freer to pursue its own monetary policy . . .
China knew very well why they were not even interested in participating in the TPP, a similar trade agreement with eleven Pacific nations and the US. [It is hoped Australia’s unpopular Jewish Prime Minister quits this enslavement or retires] . . .
[Europe’s] problems keep piling up . . . a direct or indirect consequence of empire. To mention just a few
- Immigration from US-NATO war-destroyed countries
- The never ending financial cum economic crisis
- The complete absence of solidarity among EU nations
- Lack of EU countries’ sovereignty; missing EU Constitution
- Increasing (‘false flag’) terror attacks throughout Europe—NATO—aggression towards Russia . . . risk WWIII—third time in century devastate Europe.
This time the rest of the world would very likely not be spared. Many countries are conscious of this danger and would like to get out of NATO, but don’t dare say so, because of fear from the boots of Washington. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: Such IMPORTANT news. Daniel 2:43-44 is very much alive. Another nail in the coffin of the international banksters of the City of London.
End of Angela Merkel & Rise of Ursula von der Leyen, Kissinger’s New Lap Dog
September 6, 2016 — Yesterday there were federal elections in the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern . . . Merkel’s party, the CDU, lost in catastrophic fashion with 19% behind the new right wing anti-immigration party, the AfD with 21.8% and the SPD with 30% of the vote . . . [Jewess] Merkel declined her invitation to the Bilderberg meeting . . . more likely . . . Bilderbergers and Merkel came to a mutual agreement, that her time is up . . . So she declined the invitation with the permission of . . . Henry Kissinger . . . our defence minister Ursula von der Leyen has been pampered and promoted by Kissinger now she is very busy increasing the German army and reactivating 500 German Leopard tanks.
But for which war? . . . Iran springs to mind and that would fit in with the attempted military putsch to cleanse the Turkish army and judicial system of any critical elements . . . probably so the Turkish army can be used against the Iran. They have a very long common border . . . invasion of Syria by the Turkish army was just the overture to the far bigger goal, the biggest objective in the Middle East, regime change in Iran with the help of [Jew] Hillary Clinton, Ursula von der Leyen and [Jew] Recep Erdogan.

IS Threats against Australian Iconic Sites after Syria Death
September 6, 2016 — The Islamic State has issued a vicious and detailed call to “lone wolf” followers to stab, shoot, poison and run over Australians at iconic attractions including Bondi Beach and the MCG. The latest exhortation from the terrorist group follows the death in Syria of convicted Australian terrorist Ezzit Raad, who was jailed in connection with the 2005 plot to blow up the MCG and features as the latest jihadist poster boy in a new magazine . . . It’s understood there has not been any chatter detected by counter-terrorism authorities . . . Full story: smh.com.au

I am a Syrian Living in Syria: ‘It was NEVER a Revolution or a Civil War.
The Terrorists are sent by YOUR Government’
September 7, 2016 — Two years ago, ‘Majd’ wrote these words on a Facebook posting:
I am Syrian . . . living in Syria in the middle of everything. We have seen horrors. It was never a revolution nor a civil war. The terrorists are sent by your government. They are al Qaeda, Jabhat, al Nusra, Wahhabi Salafists, Talibans etc., and the like extremists, jihadists sent by the West and the Saudis and Qatar and Turkey. Your Obama and whoever is behind him or above him are supporting al Qaeda and leading a proxy war on my country. We thought you are against al Qaeda and now you support them.
The majority here loves Assad. He has never committed a crime against his own people . . . the chemical attack was staged by the terrorists helped by USA and UK etc., everyone knows that here. American soldiers and people should not be supporting barbarian al Qaeda terrorists who are killing Christians, Muslims in my country and everyone. Every massacre was committed by them. We were all happy in Syria—we have free school and university education available for everyone, free healthcare, no GMO, no fluoride, no chemtrails, no Rothschild IMF-controlled bank, state owned central bank which gives 11% interest, we are self-sufficient and have no foreign debt to any country or bank.
Life before the crisis was so beautiful here. Now it is hard and horrific in some regions.
I do not understand how the good and brave American people can accept to bomb my country who has never harmed them and therefore help the barbarian al Qaeda. These animals slit throats and behead for pleasure . . . they behead babies and rape young kids.
They are satanic. Our military helped, by the millions of civilian militias are winning the battle against al Qaeda, but now the usa want to bomb the s*** out of us so the al Qaeda can get the upper hand.
Please help us American people. They are destroying the cradle of civilization. Stop your government.
Impeach that bankster puppet ape you have as president . . . support Ron Paul or Rand or anyone the like who are true American patriots. But be sure of one thing, if they attack and I think they will . . . it will be hell.
Be sure that it be world war and many many will die. Syria can and will defend itself and will sink many US ships. Iran will go to war, Russia and China eventually if it escalates . . . and all this for what? For the elites who created al Qaeda through the US gvt and use it to conduct proxy wars and destabilize countries who do not go along with their new world order agenda!! American people . . . you gotta regain control of your once admirable country. Now everyone hates you for the death you bring almost everywhere. Ask the Iraqis, the Afghans, the Pakistanis, the Palestinians, the Syrians, the Macedonians and Serbs, the Libyans, the Somalis, the Yemenis . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca youtube.com

September 11, 2001: 15th Anniversary of Crime & Cover-up of Century
September 7, 2016 — WTC Building exploding into fine dust (it is not burning down) by pre-planted explosives in an obvious controlled demolition.
The arrow points to a “squib” of exploding gas which is commonly seen with controlled demolitions. Some of the “splinters” seen (the only solid objects that did not pulverize into dust) are actually chunks of steel beams that were being exploded upward and laterally. The nicely-sectioned steel beams and girders were soon ordered by New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani to be trucked away and shipped to China—an order that constitutes disturbing a crime scene—which is a federal crime . . .
No plane hit the Pentagon . . . those who willingly and knowingly cover-up crimes are themselves guilty of criminal conduct, and they can be prosecuted . . . FBI collaborated in—and covered-up the crime at the Pentagon by . . . instantaneously confiscating private video . . . evidence that implicates their own government . . . politicians . . . FBI . . . CIA . . . DOD . . . What is needed is complete transparency . . . a new generation of manipulated and brain-washed Americans is unaware that its nation’s perpetual war agenda and the diabolical military and economic destabilizations of weaker nations around the world is actually understandable if one understands what really happened on 9/11 . . . the justification for:
- stupidly invading Afghanistan and Iraq.
- the formation of the Gestapo-like Department of Homeland Security
- Surveillance State, both of which have gutted the Constitution
- controversial Patriot Act
- every National Defense Authorization Act since
- perpetual, enemy-producing ever-lasting “War on Terror”
- Without coming clean neither the nation’s credibility nor the planet can be sustained.
Twenty-six questions that deceived Americans need to ask. Seventeen of the best 9/11 Truth Exposes for truth-seekers who might have limited amounts of time for their research . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Are You a Mind-Controlled CIA Stooge?
August 31, 2016 — Do you smirk when you hear someone question the official stories of Orlando, San Bernardino, Paris or Nice? Do you feel superior to 2,500 architects and engineers, to fire fighters, commercial and military pilots, physicists and chemists, and former high government officials who have raised doubts about 9/11? If so, you reflect the profile of a mind-controlled CIA stooge.
The term ‘conspiracy theory’ was invented and put into public discourse by the CIA in 1964 in order to discredit the many skeptics who challenged the Warren Commission’s conclusion that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald, who himself was assassinated while in police custody before he could be questioned. The CIA used its friends in the media to launch a campaign to make suspicion of the Warren Commission report a target of ridicule and hostility. This campaign was ‘one of the most successful propaganda initiatives of all time.’
So writes political science professor Lance deHaven-Smith, who in his peer-reviewed book, Conspiracy Theory in America, published by the University of Texas Press, tells the story of how the CIA succeeded in creating in the public mind reflexive, automatic, stigmatization of those who challenge government explanations. This is an extremely important and readable book, one of those rare books with the power to break you out of The Matrix.
Professor deHaven-Smith is able to write this book because the original CIA Dispatch #1035-960, which sets out the CIA plot, was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. Apparently, the bureaucracy did not regard a document this old as being of any importance. The document is marked ‘Destroy when no longer needed,’ but somehow wasn’t. CIA Dispatch #1035-960 is reproduced in the book.
The success that the CIA has had in stigmatizing skepticism of government explanations has made it difficult to investigate State Crimes Against Democracy (SCAD) such as 9/11. With the public mind programmed to ridicule ‘conspiracy kooks,’ even in the case of suspicious events such as 9/11 the government can destroy evidence, ignore prescribed procedures, delay an investigation, and then form a political committee to put its imprimatur on the official story. Professor deHaven-Smith notes that in such events as Kennedy’s assassination and 9/11 official police and prosecutorial investigations are never employed. The event is handed off to a political commission.
Professor deHaven-Smith’s book supports what I have told my readers: the government controls the story from the beginning by having the official explanation ready the moment a SCAD occurs. This makes any other explanation a ‘conspiracy theory.’ This is the way Professor deHaven-Smith puts it:
‘A SCAD approach to memes assumes further that the CIA and other possibly participating agencies are formulating memes well in advance of operations, and therefore SCAD memes appear and are popularized very quickly before any competing concepts are on the scene.’
The CIA’s success in controlling public perception of what our Founding Fathers would have regarded as suspicious events involving the government enables those in power positions within government to orchestrate events that serve hidden agendas. The events of September 11 created the new paradigm of endless war in behalf of a Washington-dominated world. The CIA’s success in controlling public perceptions has made it impossible to investigate elite political crimes. Consequently, it is now possible for treason to be official US government policy.
Professor deHaven-Smith’s book will tell you the story of the assassination of President Kennedy by elements of the US military, CIA, and Secret Service. Just as the Warren Commission covered up the State Crime Against Democracy, Professor deHaven-Smith shows why we should doubt the official 9/11 story. And anything else that the government tells us.
Read this book. It is short. It is affordable. It is reality preparation. It will inoculate you against being a dumbs*t, insouciant, brainwashed American. I am surprised that the CIA has not purchased the entire print run and burned the books. Perhaps the CIA feels secure from its success in brainwashing the public and does not believe that American democracy and accountable government can be restored. Full story: paulcraigroberts.org
July 11, 2014 — All BAR Members are foreign agents of the Crown which is a corporation domiciled in the City of London which is owned and operated by the Vatican. The founding fathers tried to eliminate BAR members from American government but failed. This video documents many crimes. All BAR Members are foreign agents of the Crown, a corporation domiciled in the City of London, which is owned and operated by the Vatican. The American founding fathers tried to eliminate BAR members and the damage they could cause, but were not successful, and BAR members have infiltrated every level of American government.
BAR Members are a United Nations satanic private monopoly that controls every statute, every regulation, every code, and every rule. Everything BAR members do is a fraud. BAR Members are not competent to do justice. There is absolutely nothing to do with justice that goes on in these so-called courts. Full story: Part I Part II Part III
Obama scraps Planned Talks with Rodrigo Duterte over ‘Son of Whore’ Slur
September 6, 2016 — US President Barack Obama [right] has cancelled a planned meeting with Rodrigo Duterte after the controversial Philippines leader labelled him a “son of a whore” . . . Mr. Duterte had bristled at warnings he would face questioning by Mr. Obama over a war against drugs in the Philippines that has claimed more than 2,400 lives in just over two months. Police say about 900 of those killed died in police operations; the rest were “deaths under investigation”, a term human rights activists say is a euphemism for vigilante and extrajudicial killings. Mr. Duterte made it clear he would not be lectured on human rights by [BAR member] Mr. Obama, saying: “Who is he to confront me?”
It is not the first time Mr. Duterte has cursed at a world leader. He called Pope Francis a “son of a whore” in May, and called US Ambassador Philip Goldberg a “gay son of a whore” . . . Full story: abc.net.au
Comment: President Duterte may be undiplomatic but some of his facts are beyond dispute. However, what is important here is Daniel 2:35-45.
Zika: Forced Vaccination & Quarantine, Mass Aerial Spraying
September 6, 2016 — On August 15, 2016 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) invited ‘public comment’ on an especially disturbing edict that will allow the federal agency alongside the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to quarantine entire geographic areas of the United States, restrict the movement and behavior of inhabitants in these areas, and ultimately require they undergo vaccination–in a voluntary manner of course–or face criminal prosecution . . . ‘This is a domestic mosquito, meaning they live inside the house — in closets, under the bed, in the sink. Spraying outside won’t be very effective’ . . . This is what passes for science at the CDC–the mass aerial spraying of a toxic substance on specific populations with almost no evidence of its effectiveness to eradicate a non-fatal virus–one that has been known to exist for decades and whose patent is actually owned by the Rockefeller Foundation . . .

Cease Tax-Funded Climate Tourism
September 6, 2016 — For at least 21 years now, UN/IPCC has been ring-master to a troupe of thousands. They perform at massive annual conferences held in exotic locations, serviced by top hotels and airlines, and funded largely, directly or indirectly, by reluctant tax payers. An estimated 45,000 attendees, including 114 from the Australian government, achieved nothing useful at Copenhagen and just more green tape in Paris.
Each of these climate-fests is preceded by numerous meetings of bureaucrats drafting and redrafting their wish lists. Now the UN Climateer-in-Chief, Ban Ki Moon, has jetted into the G20 summit in China to claim climate victory over climate sceptics . . .
These hypocrites lecture ‘pay-your-own-way-people’ like us on energy conservation. Let’s see them lead by example and do their chatting and scheming on the internet at their own cost. The 23-nation Clexit Coalition aims to stop all such tax-funded climate tourism. This will be discussed this week in London, at a conference where all costs are being met by the organisers and attendees. Full story: geoethic.com
An Excellent Question from a Saint
Q. Sorry for asking this question. I want to know if biblical the black African are descendents of Ham. And what was the main reason for God to send Brother Branham to South Africa. Does God have any salvation plan for Black people?
This important question demonstrates your zeal for righteousness and peace of mind through the correct understanding of the truth of God’s unchanging Word (II Peter 1:10-11). As an African, regardless of the colour of your skin you should be content. Black and brown Africans are of the pure Adamic line through Noah and Ham as are the descendants of Japheth and Seth regardless of colour: we three are blood brothers of the same mother and father whose Adamic pedigree was perfect in God’s sight (Genesis 6:9-10).
The original sin was miscegenation between Eve and the Serpent. Their son Cain was accursed of God who placed “enmity between his race and the descendants of Adam” (Genesis 3:15). Hybridization is condemned, whether animal or vegetable because His spoken Word produced a finished creation and there is no evolution of species (Genesis 1:11, 25). “God’s Word is Spirit and it is life” (John 6:63) but when it is genetically modified, added to or diminished as with denominational guesswork, it is no longer His Word and Life, but death (Revelation 22:18-19). God can only redeem or purchase His Own Word. Cross-breeding within Adam’s race is not ideal because of cultural and other differences but any offspring are in the righteous line, as were Ishmael, Ephraim, Manassas, and Moses’ black children by his Ethiopian third wife. Miscegenation between the races of Adam and Cain is a repetition of the “original sin” and genocide to Adam’s race because any children are physical Serpent’s seed absent the Book of Life which is Adam’s genealogy, and irredeemable. Jesus Messiah was “the last Adam” He was not the last Cain who has no KINSMAN Redeemer.
Ham’s son Canaan was fathered by incest with Noah’s wife who was not his mother. Noah’s first wife must have expired before the Flood because the wife He took into the Ark was Naamah, a direct descendent of Cain and accursed with all of his descendents (Genesis 6:4; 9:24-26). None of this is related to the colour of one’s skin. Mankind actually has only one skin colour, it shows up as different shades in proportion to the amount of melanin in the skin, a colouring compound that protects our bodies by absorbing ultra-violet (UV) radiation from sunlight which falls on the skin. This agrees with Brother Branham who said “God is colour-blind” concerning a man’s skin (see Newsletters 766, 834, and 864).
In Matthew 24:37 (Daniel 12:4, 10) Jesus foretold that the days of His second or ‘parousia’ Coming would see a repetition of miscegenation between the seed of the Serpent and the seed of Adam. This was the besetting sin of Noah’s day, for this cause the Lord allowed sinful men to destroy the world with the Great Flood. So today we see apostate clergy and carnal politicians applauding “multiculturalism,” a euphemism for miscegenation which is accursed of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel.
Regardless of the colour of one’s skin, should the descendents of Shem, Ham, or Japheth intermarry with the Serpent’s seed their offspring will be Cainite via Canaan and can never breed back to the Adamic lineage of Ham, Japheth, or Shem.
Although Esau and Jacob sprung from the same holy union of Isaac and Rebecca (Romans 9:10-11) Esau despised his birthright while Jacob prized it. Ham was of the same holy parents as his blood brothers Shem and Japheth yet Ham was ruled by his passions. When Brother Branham speaks of the attributes of the various races he compliments the Negroes as practical, technical, always happy and worry-free, in contrast with Japheth who is philosophical and intellectual, in contrast to Shem who was spiritual and religious. They complement one another but we follow the nature of our earthly parents, and as individuals we must each be born-again to receive a new, heavenly nature.
Ham’s moral transgression in his first-born son Canaan marred the inheritance of his offspring in the righteous line as a girl who marries a clerk rather than a prince guarantees she will never be queen and her children commoners. Likewise, one who declines the Message of their hour and chooses to join a denomination ensures they cannot be born-again, and a child born of incest or adultery within Adam’s race although saved cannot be re-born. The sins of the father do not pass to the son (Ezekiel 18:4-5, 20-22) yet repentance cannot change race. So it is that although a Negro minister, William Seymour (right), the son of freed slaves from Louisiana was the holy vessel God chose to initiate the Laodicean Church Age with the Azusa Street, Los Angeles Revival in 1906, William Branham and preceding five angels were Japhetic, following the first angel Saint Paul, who was Semitic.
Asking important questions as you have is something every elect will do; he will also prove the answers to ensure he is receiving the truth of God’s Word rather than comfortable words and a warm fuzzy feeling.
Q. “What was the main reason for God to send brother Braham to South Africa”.
In 1954 the Lord told Brother Branham to visit Africa (a second time) then go on to India, subsequently He showed His Prophet a vision in which he ministered in India first. He arrived in Bombay on September 19, 1954 after two weeks in Portugal, Rome, the Trans-Jordan, Egypt, and Greece where he met Kings, Queens and statesmen. [As the Angel of the Lord promised when He met him in the little cabin at Green’s Mill on May 6, 1946]. His last stop before returning home on September 26 was India where he met Prime Minister Nehru and members of the Indian Parliament. From Newsletter 932 you will recall that “visions never fail,” and Brother Branham visited India first according to his vision. The vision could not fail because it was God’s foreknowledge of history recorded as it were a video taken before the foundation of the world so it had to take place that way. The vision recorded the Prophet’s disobedience to God’s Word by which he was commanded to visit Africa first.
In 1962 he said, “When I went to Bombay, (I count that my greatest meeting because of the effects it had on the people). If in Africa they say thirty thousand came to Christ at one time, then there was a hundred and fifty or two hundred thousand came to Christ at one time out of that half a million there. [Confirming a vision described in, Faith in the Son of God, “India. And that’s going to be a real meeting. That’s going to be where God makes Hisself known to three hundred thousand people” (#52-0715 paragraph 2)]. What could I do? There wasn’t a thing. Perhaps maybe, say there was, just say there was a hundred thousand of them. There was no church, nothing I could do. There was nobody to give to them the Message that I believed, there wasn’t even a Pentecostal denomination would cooperate with me. And all those souls probably drifted right back into Shiites, Jains, Buddhism, what-ever-more they come from. No place to put them. Now that’s a shame, that’s a disgrace. See, because I had no cooperation, because of the stand that I take” (Taking Sides with Jesus, p. 751:38).
Had he followed the command of God’s unchanging Word rather than the vision and made Africa his first stop news reports of God’s outstanding grace in Africa may have mellowed denominational rivalry and national prestige over St. Thomas’ primacy, brought a spirit of unity among the churches and opened doors for meetings. The potential for Brother Branham’s ministry in India was impeded; he did not continue to Africa, and after seven days he arrived back in the United States on September 26th. 1954.
These three paragraphs explain two points the critical website believethesign.com does not understand.
Q. “Does God have any salvation plan for Black people”.
Black, Brown, Green, white, blue and grey, everyone in Adam’s race is born “saved” from mother’s womb because their names were placed in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world and “Jesus was the Lamb that takes away the sins of the world.” So long as one’s name is in the Book of Life, his soul has “salvation”; should they never learn of Jesus they will be granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment. Live births of children in Adam’s race who die before the age of accountability are “saved,” but girls of twelve and boys of thirteen are responsible to repent and make restitution for their misdeeds and unbelief. We are each responsible for the Word of God we have heard, and to the moral lessons of nature, so take care lest like Esau you come to the place of no more repentance (Hebrews 12:17) at which point your name will be removed from the Book and you will be lost, a soul imprisoned now: dead while you live (I Timothy 5:6).
Every Eye shall See Him
Matthew 16:13 – 17:13, “When Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, He began asking His disciples, Who do men say the Son of man is? And they said, Some say John the Baptist: some, Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets. He asked them, But whom do you say that I am? Simon Peter answered, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Jesus answered him, Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, because flesh and blood [man, books and learning] did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven has revealed who I am. And I also tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock of revelation from Above I will build My Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against faith. I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of heaven [which is faith in the revealed Word of the hour—a clear revelation of the present Truth; that faith will place the Kingdom of God in you]: and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven: and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Then He strictly charged His disciples to tell no one that He was the Messiah”.
The revelation of the Supreme Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ as the One Person of God manifest in virgin-born flesh to pay “redemption’s price” must come firsthand from God to every son of God. Faith is spiritual understanding from Above (Romans 10:17-18). One may expound the Message but “the letter without the Spirit is death” (II Corinthians 3:6). Until we “prove all things” it is a second-hand religion. Billions believe Jesus is the Christ, but without faith they presume Him to be one of three beings so that today we have thousands of denominations each preaching another gospel. To eliminate the possibility of denominations forming around the ‘third pull’ Jesus commanded Brother Branham, “Don’t try to explain it”.
Matthew 16:21-26, “From then on Jesus began to show His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised up on the third day. Then Peter took Him aside and began to remonstrate with Him: Heaven forbid, Lord! This must never happen to You. But He turned and said to Peter, Get behind Me, Satan! You are a hindrance to Me; for you are not seeing the divine mind but the viewpoint of men. Then Jesus told His disciples, If anyone wants to walk after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it; but whoever will lose his life for My sake shall find it. For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?”
Like Peter, many good people see the natural human side as the Jews and their Freemasonic “lesser brethren,” whose focus is ‘tikkun olam,’ repairing the world by bringing “order out of chaos”; so they press for the reintroduction of the US Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 to correct the economy and build Satan’s Eden when God is waiting to see the economy and monetary system FAIL so he can fulfil prophecy. As Jacob tried to buy Esau’s favour when returning to the Land of the Covenant, the Jewish international banksters will tie a deal with Rome lest their paper wealth becomes worthless. Then Israel will return to the Land of the Covenant. BREXIT, the City of London, Rothschild investments in Russia and China’s gold-backed currency and physical gold itself show this is about to happen as announced in the News items in Newsletter 936. To such misguided souls in the circle of this Message Jesus says, “Get thee behind Me, Satan! For you do not have the mind of the Lord”.
Matthew 16:27, “For the Son of man will come (Gk.) ‘erchomai’ in the glory of His Father with His angels [His Bride is His glory]; then He will reward each [of the angels or New Testament saints] according to his works [in the ‘bema’ or award judgment] at the Wedding Supper (Romans 14:10-12; II Corinthians 5:9-10).
As Son of Man Christ is now King of kings and Judge for the saints crowned Him by their revelation when as KINSMAN Redeemer He claimed the Book of Redemption, opened its Seals, and we received the fullness of the Word at His second or ‘parousia‘ Coming (Revelation 5:11-14; Revelation 10:1-11). As Jesus prophesied for the time of His unseen arrival and consequent Presence, miscegenation is rife (Matthew 24:39) and the world was in a Sodom condition (Luke 17:28-30).
Matthew 16:28, “I assure you, some standing here will not taste of death, till they see [(Gk.) ‘eido‘—understand, notice by eyes, mind or senses as in Matthew 17:8, “they (Gk.) ‘eido’ saw no man save Jesus only”] the Son of man Coming [(Gk.) ‘erchomai‘ to arrive or return, show self, make public appearance, become known] in His Kingdom [(Gk). ‘basileia‘ royal power, dominion as in Matthew 24:30 (26:64; Luke 3:6) “in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory”].
The “some standing here” were Peter who was an “Eyewitness of His Coming” (II Peter 1:16), James and John. Three is a witness: after six days these men saw a preview of Christ’s ‘erchomai’ Coming when they were caught up into the vision on Mount Transfiguration, preceded by the ‘Moses’ and ‘Elijah’ of Zechariah 4, Matthew 24:31 and Revelation 11:3-12. Luke 9:28-36 includes their two days on the mountain and counts “after eight days.”
Matthew 17:1-3, “Six days later Jesus took Peter, James and John his brother, and brought them up into a high mountain by themselves. And He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became white as the light [as He appeared to John in Revelation 1:16 and 10:1]. And Moses and Elijah appeared [(Gk.) ‘optanomai‘ to look at, allow oneself to be seen, appear] to them [in their theophany] talking with Jesus (Who is this Melchisedec, p. 17:89). Moses represented the sleeping saints who will be resurrected, and Elijah represented Christ’s Capstone Bride who, like Elijah, will be translated without death.
Matthew 17:4-6, “Then [without the mind of God] Peter said to Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if you wish, let us make three tabernacles; one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah. And while he was still talking, behold, a bright Cloud overshadowed them: and a Voice out of the Cloud, said, This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear Him. And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces, and were much afraid”.
“Virtue—or strength—went out of them” (Daniel 10:7-12; Mark 5:30; Revelation 1:17). Later, Peter would report, “Jesus received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a Voice to Him from the excellent glory, This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. And we heard this Voice which came from heaven when we were with Him in the holy Mount” (II Peter 1:17-18).
Jesus Christ is God manifest and the Voice heard by the three is the same Voice that called to us “Come up hither, and I will show you things which must be after [Laodicea]” (Revelation 4:1; Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16).
Matthew 17:7-9, “Jesus came to them and touched them, and said, Arise, do not be afraid. And lifting up their eyes, they saw [(Gk.) ‘eido’ perceived by the senses] no one, except Jesus alone. And as they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, Tell the vision [(Gk.) ‘horama‘ to gaze at a supernatural spectacle, with the eye or with the mind] to no one, [not even Judas the most trusted, the other eight disciples or to the waiting crowd] until the Son of man has risen from the dead”.
In Matthew 12:38-39 certain scribes and Pharisees desired a miracle but were denied by God—the Shekinah departed the Temple in 594BC before the Captivity (Ezekiel 10), now after 640 years the Shekinah was back in the form of the virgin-born Messiah. These religious scholars could not recognize Him and were without faith to wait for “the sign of Jonah” yet the disciples had witnessed three miracles:
- They saw Jesus glorified,
- They saw the Shekinah or Pillar of Cloud, and
- They heard the Voice of God say, “Hear ye Him”.
This Cloud of Light in the vision was the same Cloud they would see on the Mount of Olives when “He was taken up; and a Cloud received Him out of their sight. Because while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up two men stood by them in white apparel; and said, You men of Galilee, why stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen Him go into heaven” (Acts 1:9-11).
Now we have seen the Pillar of Cloud that appeared publicly on February 28, 1968 prior to His second or (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming, and are familiar with the return of that Cloud on about March 8, 1963 when He fulfilled Revelation 10:1-4. But the two men, Moses and Elijah, were referring to His second or ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel: Peter, James and John represented the 144,000 Israelites who will belatedly recognize the sign of Zechariah 14:4 after the antichrist covenant (Daniel 9:27) that the Jews have made with Rome is broken. Rome and her allies will then send their troops to destroy all God-fearing, Word-abiding Israelites. 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 (Matthew 24:3, 30, 37, 39; 16:27; Revelation 19:11-14). This is when God will open the eyes of elect Israelite’s understanding—not sight (Isaiah 59:20-21; Joel 2:32; Zechariah 12; Romans 11:25-26).
Matthew 24:3, 30, 37, 39, “As Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples asked Him privately . . . what will be the sign of Your [(Gk.) ‘parousia’ arrival and subsequent presence] Coming . . . ? And then shall appear [(Gk.) ‘phaino’ be seen] the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man Coming [(Gk.) ‘erchomai’ a public appearance] in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory . . . But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the Coming [(Gk.) ‘parousia’ arrival and subsequent presence] of the Son of man be [to Christ’s Bride, as has been obvious since 1963, and to Israel from the close of the Gentile dispensation and cleaving of the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:4-5)] . . . And knew not until the Flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the [second or ‘parousia’] Coming of the Son of man be”.
God has promised “signs in the heavens” to Christ’s end-time Bride; and after the close of the Gentile dispensation, to Israel. It was years before Christ’s Bride recognized the significance of the public appearing of that sign for us Gentiles, and fifty-three years later many in the circle of this Message conflate this with its second private appearance to Brother Branham alone as distinguished in Newsletter 752. When confronted by the websites of critics like believethesign.com, laymen and ministers who have failed to study and prove all things are fall away from the Message like flies.
God never changes His ways. The second manifestation of the Pillar of Cloud that descended on Mount Sunset at Christ’s second Coming and caught up William Branham was a sign for him alone as the manifestation of the Pillar of Fire in the form of a dove was a sign for John the Baptist alone to identify the Person of Messiah at His first Coming.
John 1:32-36, “John bore witness, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and remain on Him. And although I did not know Him. He who sent me to baptize with water told me Himself, On whom you see the Spirit descend and remain; He is the One who baptizes with the Holy Spirit. And I did see it and I testify that this is the Son of God. Again the next day when John was standing with two of his disciples he looked at Jesus as He was walking along, and he said, Behold the Lamb of God!”
Other examples include John 12:28-29 when the heavenly Voice spoke to Jesus, His companions did not understood the words as it was for Him alone, and in Acts 22:6-18 when Jesus spoke from the Pillar of Fire it was heard by Paul alone. From the Garden of Eden, the Word for the hour is understood by the elect of God alone. Revelation 14:3 informs us that only the elect Israelites will receive the revelation of the Message of their Moses and Elijah, and Revelation 2:17 and 19:12 state that only the elect will receive the revelation of Jesus’ new Name.
We must understand that neither the Christians nor the Israelites will see the glorified Jesus Messiah on earth until we return with Him to tread down the nuclear ashes of the wicked for a thousand years of peace (Malachi 4:1-3). This is supported by Matthew 24:23-28 wherein Jesus instructs us not to seek the Man, but Light on the Word. The following two scriptures describe Christ’s second appearance to Israel and the world and it will not be the physical return of Jesus.
Matthew 16:27, “The Son of man shall come [(Gk.) ‘erchomai’ publicly show Himself] in the glory of His Father with His angels; and then He shall reward every man according to his works”.
II Thessalonians 1:6-10, “It is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; and to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed [(Gk.) ‘apocalupsis’ unveiled and made visible] from heaven [not on earth] with His mighty angels [the glorified saints] in flaming fire, taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. These will pay the penalty of eternal damnation from the Presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power, when He comes [(Gk.) ‘erchomai’] to be glorified in [the persons of] His saints, and to be admired in all who have believed (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day”.
The Shekinah or Cloud of Light is described in Isaiah 4:4-5 “After the Lord has washed away the filth of the Daughters of Zion [His Bride of all ages], and purged the bloodshed of [the daughters of] Jerusalem [144,000 Israelites] by the Spirit of judgment and the Spirit of burning [consuming sin (Matthew 3:11-12)] He will create over the whole area of [the new 1,500 mile high] Mount Zion a Pillar of Cloud by day, and the brightness of the flaming fire of the Shekinah by night, for all the glory shall be a defence.” The splendour of New Jerusalem, after the millennium.
The Shekinah of all the saints—Christ’s glory is His Wife. I Corinthians 11:7, “the woman is the glory of the man . . . and the Church is the glory of Christ” (II Corinthians 8:23).
John 17:5, “Father, glorify Me with Yourself with the glory which I had with You before the world was.” This is the new creation of glorified God-men with dominion over earth according to God’s blessing and commandment in Genesis 1:27-28, “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them, and God said to them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it: and have rule over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth”.
John 1:1, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” Thus the Bible is the story of the One person of God changing His form or unfolding Himself from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts to their manifestation in the glorified flesh of His Family, Jesus Christ and His wife: God’s Attributes manifest.
Revelation 14:1, “And I . . . [enter your name here because throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ’s end-time Bride] . . . looked [(Gk.) ‘eido’ perceived by the mind] and saw the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him a hundred forty and four thousand who had His Name and His Father’s Name written in their foreheads.” Jesus explained in John 5:43, “I am come in My Father’s Name”; His compound redemptive Name is LORD JESUS CHRIST (Matthew 28:19; Luke 24:47; Acts 2:38-39; 4:12; Ephesians 5:20; Colossians 3:17; I Timothy 3:16). “Father” and “Son” are two offices of one Holy Spirit which is WHAT God is (John 4:24).
The parenthesis of Revelation 14:6-12 shows Christ’s end-time Bride how, through the ministry of Israel’s ‘Elijah,’ 144,000 elect Israelites will ultimately be born-again through values restored by Martin Luther, John Wesley and William Branham. They will be justified by grace through faith in the true oneness of the godhead, baptized for the remission of past unbelief in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; sanctified by Blood of the Word slain for them on Calvary, baptized into Christ by revelation of the Word for their Age, and seal their testimony in their own blood.
This will fulfil Romans 11:26-27, “All Israel will be saved: as it is written, The Deliverer shall come out of Zion, and turn away ungodliness from Jacob: for this is My covenant with them, when I have remitted their unbelief.” After two thousand years the 144,000 will be “seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:6). As Paul wrote in Hebrews 12:22-24, “You have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly of the firstborn, who are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, and to Jesus the mediator of the New Covenant, and the blood of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel”.
In the vision on Mount Transfiguration Peter, James and John represented the 144,000 in the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week after the ascent of their ‘Moses’ and “Elijah’ but before their martyrdom (Revelation 14:13-20; 7:4-8) recognizing that the fulness of the Word is Jesus Christ (Isaiah 66:8).
In Revelation 14:2-3 we see Harpo made it but there is no mention of Chico, Groucho, Gummo or Zeppo. “I heard a Voice out of heaven as the sound of harpists.” I could not understand the words because it was the revelation of the nation of Israel gloriously born-again “and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, who were redeemed from the earth.” Physically they are on earth but spiritually they are before the throne singing Victory in Jesus! “Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord” (Matthew 23:39). This is the revelation story of Zechariah 12:1-14 when the sign of the ‘parousia’ Coming of the Son of man with His mighty armies appears in the heavens to destroy them that have been destroying the earth and Israel sees by faith, not by sight (Revelation 11:18-19; 19:11-14). This will also be the testimony of the 144,000 as they are martyred: “singing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are Your works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are Your ways, You King of saints. Who shall not fear, O Lord, and glorify Your Name? For You alone are holy: for all nations shall come and worship before You; for Your judgments are made manifest” (Revelation 15:3-4).
Revelation 14:4-5, “These are they which were not defiled with women [denominational churches]; for they are virgins [to the Word]. It is these who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from mankind as first fruits for God and the Lamb. No falsehood can be charged against them; they are faultless”.
Revelation 1:7, 11, (Daniel 7:13), “Behold He is coming [(Gk.) ‘erchomai’ making Himself known by a public appearance] with clouds [not the Man]; and every eye will see [(Gk.) ‘optanomai’ appear, allow oneself to be seen] Him, and those who pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so, Amen”.
Every eye” will not see the Man Jesus, they will see the sign and understand the hour of the day, “and all kindreds of the earth will wail on account of Him.” This is when God opens the eyes of faith in Israel (Zechariah 12:9 – 13:9).
Paul sums up Isaiah 59:20-21, and Joel 2:32 in Romans 11:25-27, “I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery, lest you be self-opiniated and wise in your own conceits, for partial blindness has come over Israel until the full number of elect Gentiles is born-again, then all elect Israelites will be saved. As it is written, The Deliverer will come from Zion, and turn away ungodliness from Jacob. For this is My covenant with them, when I shall take away their sins”.
By grace “every eye shall see” by faith or understand as described in Zechariah 12:10-14, “And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplication: and they shall look [(Heb.) ‘nabat’ show regard] to Me whom they have pierced, and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him, like the bitter weeping over a first-born . . .”
This vision leading to Armageddon will follow the birth of the Israel nation in one day. Revelation 19:11-14, “And I saw [(Gk.) ‘eido’ perceived by the mind] heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He who sat upon it was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of Fire, and on His head are many crowns; and He has a Name written, that no man knows but himself. And He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood: and His Name is called The Word of God. And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean were following Him upon white horses”.
On the last Passover certain Gentile proselytes told Phillip, “Sir, we would see Jesus.” This Gentile interest in Messiah confirmed “the hour had come in which He would be glorified.” That very night Jesus would be arrested and tried, crucified and buried before the next evening. In vain He sought to expound to denominational men possessed of “the letter without the Spirit” the imminence of prophecy.
In despair He hid: “though He had done so many miracles before them, they believed not on Him: that the saying of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” Israel could not believe contrary to the THUS SAITH THE LORD of Isaiah 53:1 anymore than Brother Branham could obey God’s command to visit Africa before India when the vision showed him in India. The Word, visions and types cannot fail.
Israel saw but did not recognize the Lord’s glory—the Shekinah veiled in flesh performing His mighty works. So Jesus quoted from Isaiah 6 where the prophet saw God’s glory, Jesus Messiah, as King of kings exalted on His lofty throne upon the fifteen-hundred mile high Mount Zion in New Jerusalem, with His glorified Bride of all Ages filling the temple. Isaiah saw his vision in the year that King Uzziah died a leper, having usurped the priesthood like the apostate churches today (II Timothy 3-4; Revelation 3:17-20). Leprosy types sin, which is unbelief in the revealed Word of the hour (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7). As “God blinded the eyes of the Israelites, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and be healed” He has blinded eyes and hardened the hearts of the Gentiles. “For God has concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all” (Romans 11:32).
In His mercy, the same Head that was revealed in the East was revealed in the West (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:27-28). The Shekinah Glory of the Son of Man was veiled behind William Branham in our Sodom generation “as it was veiled behind the created Man in the days of Lot” vindicated by the same signs (Luke 17:28-30; Hebrews 4:12; 13:8). God ended the leprous Laodicea Church Age in apostasy as He ended the Hebrew dispensation.
What will terminate the Gentile dispensation? As in the days of King Uzziah there will be an earthquake of unprecedented magnitude, sinking Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300-400 segment of earth’s crust (Revelation 6:12; 16:18; 18:21-24). In Israel the Mount of Olives will cleave in two demolishing the Dome of the Rock, igniting the hot stage of World War III (Isaiah 29:6; Zechariah 14:1-5; Revelation 16:19), and every eye will see the Glory of the Lord in the press, TV and radio, but few will understand the significance as the sign of His second or ‘parousia’ Coming to us Gentiles has been ignored and after three days the first resurrection will commence. But even the elect Israelites will not recognize the sign of the second or ‘parousia’ of the Son of man until late in the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week.
The purpose of this sermon is to demonstrate that Spiritual realities are not as the world church system believes. I pray by the grace of Almighty God you have SEEN and understood Jesus with eyes of faith. nl938.htm
