Bible Believers’ Newsletter 699
“We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . .”
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God’s unchanging Word and extend an especially warm welcome to our new subscribers.
In this issue we post Louis Beam’s well-researched paper on the sin of “multiculturalism” outlining the objective of the Illuminati, ‘City of London,’ anti-Christ, or whatever label you chose to apply to Satan’s minions ‘at the top’—the ‘hidden hand’ behind your country and mine. No one who serves the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob would slap Him in the face by supporting this unnatural and aberration that is accursed from Genesis to Revelation. Along with homosexuality Jesus Messiah nominated multiculturalism as the terminal sin of this, the last generation.
Also in this issue we advance our exposition of Zechariah’s nine consecutive visions which reveal the New Testament in the Old. As a matter of fact, not only are the Seven Seals of Revelation found in the Gospels, they may be taught from the first two chapters of Genesis. Isaiah 42:9, “Behold, the former things have come to pass, and now I declare new things do: before they spring forth I tell you of them.” All we need by the grace of God is faith, which is His mind in us.
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.
As America’s Economy Collapses a ‘New Normal’ Police State Takes Shape
August 15, 2011 — As corporate overlords position themselves to seize what little remains of a tattered social net (adieu Medicare and Medicaid! Social Security? Au revoir!), the Obama administration is moving at break-neck speed to expand police state programs first stood-up by the Bush government.
After all, with world share prices gyrating wildly, employment and wages in a death spiral, and retirement funds and publicly-owned assets swallowed whole by speculators and rentier scum, the state better dust-off contingency plans lest the Greek, Spanish or British “contagion” spread beyond the fabled shores of “old Europe” and infect God-fearin’ folk here in the heimat. Fear not, they have, and the lyrically-titled Civil Disturbances: Emergency Employment of Army and Other Resources, otherwise known as Army Regulation 500-50, spells out the “responsibilities, policy, and guidance for the Department of the Army in planning and operations involving the use of Army resources in the control of actual or anticipated civil disturbances.” (emphasis added)
With British politicians demanding a clampdown on social media in the wake of London riots, and with the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) agency having done so last week in San Francisco, switching off underground cell phone service to help squelch a protest against police violence, authoritarian control tactics, aping those deployed in Egypt and Tunisia (that worked out well!) are becoming the norm in so-called “Western democracies”. . .

America: ‘A Parasite on the World’
August 11, 2011 — If Russian prime minister Putin’s recent description of America as “a parasite on the world” were reported by the US media, little doubt most Americans would be infuriated. We are the virtuous people. Without us good guys to police the world there would be mayhem and wars everywhere, not merely the ones we started in the Middle East, Asia, and North Africa. Without the American white hats people everywhere would be starving and dying from natural disasters. It is us chosen ones who provide the rescue operations and good deeds. How dare the former KGB monster to slander our country!
Is it merely a coincidence that on August 11 the Swiss announced that they were discarding their monetary constitution that has prevented inflation in Switzerland and that has made their currency a safe haven for people everywhere who desired to protect their wealth, both small and large, from the predatory inflation practices of their own governments? Or is the Swiss announcement a result of America’s financial irresponsibility, the behavior of a parasite?
The Swiss said they are forced to violate their monetary constitution, because the irresponsible practices of the United States and European Union monetary authorities are driving so many dollars and euros into Swiss francs that the franc has appreciated to astronomical heights and is threatening Switzerland with the collapse of their export markets and GDP.
The EU says it has no choice but to bail out its private banks as that is the policy of Washington, DC, and that it must print euros in order to bail out the banks. This policy is in violation of the charter of the European Central Bank, but what do rules and laws mean in today’s world? Nothing whatsoever.
Obviously, Washington is threatening the world not merely with war but also inflation. . . If anything, Putin understated the burden that America is on the world. How much longer will the world put up with “the virtuous nation?”

NATO’s Puppet Regime in Libya Falls Apart
August 15, 2011 — The sacking of the entire Benghazi-based Libyan opposition cabinet this week has exposed the anti-democratic, faction-riven character of the regime that the US and its European allies are seeking to impose on Libya. The self-proclaimed Transitional National Council (TNC)—facing a military stalemate in efforts to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi due to its lack of popular support—is being consumed by violent internal conflicts. . .
A fortnight after Younis’s death, TNC president Jalil, himself a former Gaddafi justice minister, has offered no account of what happened. Moreover, he has been forced to dismiss his entire ‘cabinet’ to keep control of his fractious coalition of Islamists, ex-Gaddafi officials, CIA assets and assorted adventurers.
What emerges is a devastating indictment of the Obama administration and its European allies along with all the pseudo left organisations and liberals such as American professor Juan Cole, who have acted as cheerleaders for the NATO bombing campaign in Libya. A TNC regime imposed on Libya by NATO would be at least as corrupt and repressive as the regime headed by Gaddafi. [The Gaddafi regime appears to be anything but ‘corrupt and repressive’ – Ed].
Even as the TNC’s anti-democratic and mercenary character has become more apparent, the US and European powers have extended diplomatic recognition. Amid the factional infighting that followed Younis’s murder, the US, Britain and other countries have handed over Libyan embassies to Gaddafi’s opponents. At the same time these powers are keeping a tight rein on Libya’s overseas financial assets—to fund and maintain control over their fractious puppets in Benghazi.
The NATO powers’ decision to back a group like the TNC shows that their intervention in Libya never aimed to protect civilians or establish democracy, but to advance their strategic and economic ambitions. These include the domination of Libya’s substantial oil reserves and the establishment of a beachhead in North Africa, from which to control and suppress the emerging revolutionary movements in the region, above all in neighbouring Egypt. . .

Make No Mistake: NATO committed War Crimes in Libya. NATO Missiles Target Libyan Hospital, Kill 50 Children, homes.
Comment: Clearly it is the NATO ‘regime’ ‘headed by the US, Britain and other countries’ that is ‘corrupt and repressive’. The CIA funded and armed their ‘al Qaeda’ rebels to invade Syria from Iraq and institute insurrection, nor Obama has demanded President Assad hand over power. Can there be any doubt the United States is the image to the Roman beast of Revelation 13:11-18?
Media Disinformation and the Causes of the Somali Famine
August 4, 2011 — BBC news coverage of the famine in Somalia has been saturating the airwaves and it’s always like this whenever ‘natural disasters’ strike. Fundamentally it’s little more than a fund-raising promo paid for with our taxes as endlessly repeated shots of emaciated babies and dying people serves no informative purpose except to tug covetously at our purse strings. And of course it has the added benefit of distracting us from our own condition—until the next crisis comes our way.
. . . famine in the late 20th century is not a consequence of a shortage of food. On the contrary, famines are spurred on as a result of a global oversupply of grain staples. Since the 1980s, grain markets have been deregulated under the supervision of the World Bank and US grain surpluses are used systematically as in the case of Somalia to destroy the peasantry and destabilize national food agriculture. . .
“Far beneath the surface of the tragic drama of Somalia, four major US oil companies are quietly sitting on a prospective fortune in exclusive concessions to explore and exploit tens of millions of acres of the Somali countryside. According to documents obtained by The Times, nearly two-thirds of Somalia was allocated to the American oil giants Conoco, Amoco, Chevron and Phillips in the final years before Somalia’s pro-US President Mohamed Siad Barre was overthrown and the nation plunged into chaos in January, 1991.
Somalia was a pastoral economy based on “exchange” between nomadic herdsmen and small agriculturalists. Nomadic pastoralists accounted for 50 percent of the population. In the 1970s, resettlement programs led to the development of a sizeable sector of commercial pastoralism. Livestock contributed to 80 percent of export earnings until 1983. Despite recurrent droughts, Somalia remained virtually self-sufficient in food until the 1970s.
The IMF-World Bank intervention in the early 1980s contributed to exacerbating the crisis of Somali agriculture. The economic reforms undermined the fragile exchange relationship between the “nomadic economy” and the “sedentary economy”—i.e. between pastoralists and small farmers characterized by money transactions as well as traditional barter. A very tight austerity program was imposed on the government largely to release the funds required to service Somalia’s debt with the Paris Club. In fact, a large share of the external debt was held by the Washington-based financial institutions.
So, far from being a ‘natural disaster’ events in Somalia can be traced directly to Western intervention, an intervention carried out in at least one hundred indebted economies the world over in the name of ‘structural adjustment’.

Comment: Australia’s alien-controlled taxpayer-funded public propaganda system has been pumping for donations to the UN relief for these people instead of exposing the cause as they are promoting the Bankster’s HOAX and scam of CO2 “Climate Change.” The object of both schemes: the Bankster-devised reality and the Bankster-devised HOAX, is genocide and world depopulation.
The Revitalized Eugenics Movement and the FDA’s Role
August 12, 2011 — On July 29, 2011 the Department of Global Health and Population at the Harvard School of Public Health sounded the population alarm bell in the international science journal, Science, advocating for international contraception efforts to be funded by wealthy countries. On August 1, 2011 the Obama administration announced its plan to force health insurers, beginning in 2013, to pay for “free” birth control for all US women, including free birth control pills, morning after pills, sterilization, and any other “FDA-approved contraception methods and contraceptive counseling.” Americans should understand that Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Margaret Hamburg is well-versed in eugenics theory, as both of her elite psychiatrist parents have headed the American Eugenics Society. We are rapidly moving toward the time when government bureaucrats issue regulations to determine which fetuses, at five weeks of age, are genetically fit enough to be born.
The goal of eugenics is to utilize science to improve the genetic composition of a population. The elite eugenics ruling class is terrified of rapid population growth in “undesirable genetic stock.” Their efforts are focused on controlling rapid population growth in developing countries, such as African nations, and in minority groups in the United States and other developed countries. . .

Comment: Jesus prophesied the sins of Noah’s day will repeat in the days of His second or ‘parousia’ Coming (Matthew 24:37; Genesis 6:1-4). The besetting sin in the days of Noah was Satan’s eugenics program of miscegenation between the descendants of Adam and the Serpent’s seed offspring of Cain, which is the besetting sin today, but rather than label it a program of eugenics by miscegenation, it is now called by the euphemism multiculturalism. Whatever it is called, sin is sin.
Satan had just about taken Michael’s kingdom through his program of eugenics as “Noah was perfect in his generations” all the way back to Adam, and forward to Japheth. So much for British Israel/Christian Identity theology! But Satan had another card up his sleeve, for Noah took the beautiful Serpent’s seed Naamah with him to wife.
Part Human/Part Animal Hybrid Monsters are being created by Scientists
Crazed scientists all over the globe are “playing god” with the very building blocks of life. Today, thanks to extraordinary advances in the field of genetic modification, scientists are now able to do things that were once unthinkable. . .
- In China, scientists have inserted human genes into the DNA of dairy cow embryos. At this point, approximately 200 hybrid cows have been successfully produced. These cows can produce milk that is virtually identical to human breast milk. The scientists hope to have huge herds of these cows producing an alternative to human breast milk soon, and they hope to have this “milk” sold in global supermarkets within 3 years.
- Scientists at Rockefeller University have injected human genes into mice. These “humanized mice” are being used to study the spread of the hepatitis C virus.
- In Missouri, entities that are part pig and part human are being grown with the goal of providing organs for human transplants.
Countries all over the world are doing this kind of research. . . Full story: endoftheamericandream.com
As a Tool to Divide and Conquer
The Layman’s Primer
by Louis Beam
No nation is born multicultured. Multiculturalism is an unnatural as well as unhealthy condition that can only afflict states in national decline. A multicultural state carries in it’s geneses the seeds of eventual national destruction.
All multicultural nations will be found to be in a state of political, moral, economic and social decay. Greed and corruption will characterize the government coupled with oppressive measures directed against citizens. Lies and deceit will be stock and trade of media, politicians, and educational institutions. Such are the bellwethers of a multiculturalist advent.
In modern times multiculturalism is instituted from the top down as an elitist ruling class tool used to play one or more racial or ethnic groups against another. The ensuing cultural melee serves the political designs, economic goals and power needs of elitist rulers and their sponsors. This technique was developed by Marxist ideologues who used multiculturalism in Russia to divide and conquer resistance to the institution of a communist state. The end result of their successful takeover was the murder of thirty million humans in the Soviet Union alone. Many more elsewhere.
The same internationalist cabals who sponsored Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin as the multicultural leaders of the Soviet state from their banking houses in New York, similarly sponsor the multicultural leaders of the United States, Canada, and Europe today. An interlocking network of foundations such as Ford and Carnegie, international banking empires such as Rockefeller and Rothschild, and government agencies firmly in their control work in tandem with controlled propaganda outlets such as the New York Times, CBS, and Hollywood, to promote, foster, and institute multiculturalism today. While the examples used in this essay deal primarily with the United States the same process with the same methods is being employed elsewhere. This of itself is prima facie evidence of a cabal which promotes multiculturalism as a tool to achieve its objectives.
Multiculturalism is being used as a hammer to forge the compliant people who will compose the obedient states of the New World Order. As a weapon of post modern political warfare multiculturalism has few equals, which, thus explains its use currently against all of Western Europe, the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Deliberate fragmentation of these nations and the resultant loss of national identity and purpose into politically disharmonious units, serves as a stepping stone to world government. And who will compose that world government? A ruling class consisting of an “economic hierarchy” that replaces the philosophy of the nineteenth century “natural hierarchy.” A force that views countries and the people that live in them first as economic targets to be exploited, and second as military targets to be defeated if they resist.
One must not let himself be confused by the window dressing of willing dupes from the left who are most often, but not always, seen as the spokesmen for the glories of multiculturalism. Liberal supporters of multiculturalism amount to nothing more than opportunist parasites riding on the back of a social fungus attacking the body politic. While some incoherent liberals have been spokesmen for multiculturalism, they should not be viewed as representing other main stream liberals any more so than do so-called conservatives like Bob Dole and Newt Gingrich speak for constitutionalists and populists. The real stimulus, unseen elitist who promote multiculturalism as a tool of warfare, are themselves anything but liberal, progressive, or democratic. Rather they are global social tyrants who seek more power, more wealth, and more control over people—and they could care less what the politics are of those they seek to rule.
Elitists schemers envision a dictatorial world government composed of forcibly federated states, which, properly speaking, are police states without borders. The United Nations will serve as the store house front and public face of those who from behind the scenes manipulate world events. Economically envisioned is a global workers plantation overseen by transnational corporations who have no more concern for the human rights of those who produce their products or services than Stalin did for his miserable workers. Vassal states are to produce goods and insure compliance of their subjects by defining all opposition to the borderless police state as terrorism. Thus will be the good times. In bad times, when elitist multinational corporations are unable to maintain control, the armed might of NATO will be used to enforce obedience by non-compliant states.(1)
Methods used and their Effect
Just as television commercials are run by those who will profit from their airing, multiculturalism is fostered upon a country by its sponsors who intend to benefit from its acceptance.
Those who sponsor multiculturalism are properly called multiculturalists and generally will be found to be those people with the least amount of personal culture appertaining to them. As a dying tree drops its leaves and is attacked by fungus and worms of decay, so to is a nation set upon by multiculturalists. The dominate culture is attacked from all sides. This is not so much a product of maliciousness as necessity. By vilifying, leveling, and weakening the dominant culture, an environment is created for social, political, and economic turmoil which produces change that will benefit the sponsors of a multiculturalist state. If the government and news media relentlessly pursue issues of race, gender, and diversity in preference to the real issues that need to be addressed, there will be an increasing division of society along the same lines. Which is exactly what the sponsors of multiculturalism want.
Social instability, caused by a steady erosion of standards and values, coupled with a scramble over dwindling economic opportunities by conflicting ethnic groups, produces precisely the alienation and conflict needed to implement a multicultural state. Further, the lack of common standards and values leads to personal disorganization, resulting in unsociable behavior. This is the life support system of a multicultural state. In a word: anomie.
As a political tool multiculturalism has several applications. It is used to prevent a national consensus among the electorate. The confluence of divergent life views, cultures, beliefs, religions, ethnic habits, etc. insures a swirling river of discontent upon which the multiculturalist rides. It is a perfect method of ensuring that there can never in the future be accord, unity, and a common agreed upon destiny among those ruled. Multiculturalism represents a basic form of divide and conquer, to the benefit of corrupt government and its sponsors.
Multiculturalism is likewise a financial tool used to socially and economically level a targeted population. When implemented, it becomes in fact a battle over scarce resources and shrinking economic opportunities, with government weighing in on the side of cheap labour. A continual flow of impoverished workers is insured through immigration (both legal and illegal), who by working for less compensation continually drive wages down. For the vast majority of citizens the standard of living will not increase, but rather constantly decrease.
As a general rule: The amount of multiculturalism in any society is directly proportional to the corruption at the top of a political system and inversely proportional to national unity.
This means: multiculturalism will have succeeded in so much as the country has failed.
Multiculturalism can further be used as “transitional tool” to take a targeted population from one form of government to another. When a political condition of greed, massive corruption, and diversity of objective is coupled to a social condition of drugs, violence, and discontent, therein exists the perfect environment for governmental change to a system that more closely serves long term interests of ruling elitists. Seeing that both the problem and solution are provided by the same people makes the CIA’s importation of some one hundred billion dollars worth of cocaine and other drugs into the United States understandable. While at the same time explaining FBI, ATF, and other, more secretive federal government agencies involvement in domestic terrorism or its cover-up. Suddenly, that which erroneously was previously thought to be unrelated events show their common thread and purpose.
Within the deleterious milieu of multiculturalism exists the propaganda opportunity for re-education of the people into a more malleable entity. A targeted population will be shaped mentally by new forms of public education in the schools, media indoctrination, and by elitist pronouncements. Thus placed in a crucible of economic necessity and social pressure, once free citizens become despondent masses, adjusting to and accepting fundamentally changing national circumstances as a matter of expedient survival. For the reticent, conformity by force will ensue in the form of legal penalties disguised as ant-drug, anti-terrorism, or anti-hate laws. All of this leading toward what George Orwell so aptly predicted in his book 1984:
“Almost certainly we are moving into an age of totalitarian dictatorships. An age in which freedom of thought will be at first a deadly sin and later on a meaningless abstraction.”
A society is being spawned where those with the most unsociable behavior, deviant lifestyle, or personal failures are given the most by government. This is no accident! It is not government blundering, nor is it misguided liberalism; it is exactly what it is by design, purpose, and objective. A program advocated by both Republican and Democratic administrations for the elitist backers of both are the same. It is the program of a government which has fallen firmly into the hands of evil forces. Failure to recognize this salient point will result in endlessly chasing after tangents, or needlessly blaming those who have no power to change the current direction of events. Anger directed toward liberals,(2) Blacks, or people of colour is wasted. Reorganization of the government from the bottom up would be productive.
Multiculturalism, like drugs, is an insidious weapon. Both destroy the heart and fabric of a people. All ties to family, community, and one’s people as a whole are destroyed by these two opiates of the human mind. Both are sponsored from the top down by one world elitists bent upon creating a world order who’s power is such that its subjects posses no potential for resistance.
By its very nature every emerging police state seeks to harness both the power of the state and the people to its will. When calls are made for support of cryptic slogans such as war on crime, drugs, terrorism, hate, poverty, etc. what is really meant is “grant power to the state and applaud the rape of your freedom.” In sum: multiculturalism is another program designed to create the subjects of a Police State Without Borders. When coupled with the “war on drugs” and “war on terrorism,” Orwell’s world of endless war is realized. It would be their world, their orders, and nothing new, for a lust for despotism is as old as mankind himself.
The antithesis of multiculturalism is moral, religious, and cultural solidarity among the people of a nation. Belief in one’s self and the ultimate good of his people. A cohesiveness that produces a national vision, with set boundaries of acceptability and unacceptability in the affairs of a nation, while allowing for the natural differences in men. Multiculturalism as a tool of warfare becomes impotent and rejected in such an environment.
A necessary first step toward recovery is to look at politics, social policy, and government emanating from Washington D.C. with new eyes, unclouded by a lifetime of false information and deception propagated by elitist sponsors. Pretending any longer that the bought and paid for political prostitutes in Washington D.C. represent you or anyone you know is tantamount to cutting your own wrist with a razor blade. Self-destructive behavior may qualify one for government “protected class status” under diversity laws—but it will not save you, your family, or your nation.
America, Canada, and most of Europe are ruled by politicians about whom the best that can be said is that they are men of ill repute, each out to loot the state. One thing is clear, the American ruling elite of today are far closer in ideological viewpoint to world government ruled by a privileged few than it is to the world of the American Revolution or the Constitutional Convention of 1789. Yet still, the spirit of 1776 lives on in this land. For once again rebellion to tyrants in obedience to God is afoot. Listen closely and in the distance you can hear the ring of liberty’s bell calling gallant sons and noble daughters to her aid. They know no left, nor right, only treason. And they will not fear to answer. Let tyrants tremble. And though the heavens fall, let there be justice.
Footnotes: 1. Those who imagine the United Nations in and of itself as a military threat are naive or deliberately mislead. Global elitist would never trust the UN with an army other than one on loan. Because of the UN’s diversity there is too great a potential for some member states taking as serious elitist propaganda of “democratic” rule and “equality” then using any military that might exist without elitist sanction. NATO on the other hand is controlled by the United States government, which is the chief force behind the establishment of the New World Order. It is, and will remain in the foreseeable future, the army of choice for ensuring compliance. A quick change of hat from green to blue will make NATO troops “UN Forces” when such need is sanctioned by elitists.
2. Indeed liberal thinkers such as Daniel Brandt have written far more eloquently about the deleterious effects of multiculturalism than the present writer. Brandt’s essay Multiculturalism and the Ruling Elite is a must read for those interested in the subject.
Comment: Jesus prophesied two of the major curses for this our day are multiculturalism (Matthew 24:39; Genesis 6:1-4, and homosexuality (Luke 17:28-39; Genesis 18).
Brother Branham prophesied, “Remember I’m on tape; you’ll see it after—maybe after I’m gone. That’s exactly what’s going to happen. Them precious people will die down there like flies. Starts a revolutionary, both white and colored will fight again and die like flies. And what you got when it’s all over? A bunch of dead people” (The Third Exodus, p. 24:1-2).
The British people and the world are shocked by the riots that have ravaged the country. Had they stopped the massive immigration pouring into their nation when they were warned of these certain consequences they would have avoided the racial riots and strife that has and does curse the United States! The politicians sold them out and now they are reaping the whirlwind, but with shifting demographics the riots of Britain can only get worse. The same horrific conditions are on the way to every European homeland as well as Canada, the United States. Australia and New Zealand. Watch this powerful film on multiculturalism.

Zechariah’s Sixth Vision
Zechariah’s fourth and fifth visions were consolatory in nature. They reveal how the Kingdom will be restored to Israel by grace through faith and the living Temple of the Lord’s Body and New Jerusalem completed. In his sixth vision the prophet is directed to show the Israelites that “without holiness no man shall see the Lord.” A holy God cannot abide wickedness and there is no tolerance for impenitent sinners; those who reject God’s mercy will be extirpated (Ezekiel 18:19-23). This brings us to the close of grace, to the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet, Seventh Vial and the day of the Lord, wherein Satan and his demons will be bound and Earth cleansed by fire for the thousand years of peace.
Zechariah 5:1-4, “Again I lifted up my eyes [to a new vision] and saw a Scroll flying through the air. And the interpreting angel asked me, What do you see? And I answered, I see a flying roll; its length is thirty feet, and its breadth is fifteen feet. Then he said, This is the curse that goes out over the face of the whole earth: for according to this side of the Scroll every one who steals shall purged out; and every one who swears falsely shall be cut off according to the writing on the other side of the Scroll.”
“I will send the curse into the home of every thief, and into the home of everyone who swears falsely by My Name: and My curse shall remain in his house, and consume it, both its timber and its stones”.
The interpreting angel communicating with Zechariah, who like John on the Isle of Patmos is caught up in the Spirit into the day of the Lord in nine continuous visions, was our Brother William Branham (1909-1965), the angel to the seventh or Laodicean Church Age (1906-1963) whose commission was to restore the apostolic faith and “finish the mystery of God” (Revelation 3:14; 10:7). Brother Branham’s appearance to Zechariah in 519BC might seem inexplicable to a new subscriber, but a careful study of the previous expositions in this series commencing at Newsletter 695 will reveal the explanation to be both Scriptural and straightforward, as you one looks past the conception of Zechariah’s generation under the Law and beyond the Gentile dispensation to the day of the Lord when unrepentant sin has exhausted grace and “the whole earth” is under the curse of the Law with no toleration for impenitent sinners, while the penitent, even the elect, must seal their testimony in martyrdom (Galatians 3:10; Revelation 14:12-13).
The angel directs Zechariah’s attention to the flying Scroll which was unrolled so that its curses and its dimensions could be seen. Its purpose is to “Bring to remembrance the Law of My servant Moses, which I commanded at Horeb for all Israel with its statutes and [retributive] judgments” to be swiftly visited upon the transgressors in “the time of Jacob’s trouble” during Daniel’s Seventieth Week (Malachi 4:4; Jeremiah 30:7; Daniel 9:27).
The Scroll being open to all brings the Law “to remembrance” so none can claim ignorance as an excuse for disregarding its statutes and curses for disobedience. This portends the ministry of the Hebrew prophet anointed with the Spirit that endued Moses, clothed in sackcloth mourning the murder of Jesus Messiah and pointing on the day of Atonement when on recognizing His second or ‘parousia’ Coming “all Israel will be born-again” (Romans 11:26; Zechariah 13). The dimensions of the Scroll are taken from the Porch before the Holy Place of the Temple where the Law was usually read to those in the court of Israel (I Kings 6:3), this signifies that the curse upon sinners will be meted out strictly according to the measure of the Holy Place.
To quote Peter in his address to the Judeans in Acts 3:14-23:
“You denied the Holy and Righteous One and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and killed the Prince [and Author] of Life, whom God has raised from the dead, of which John and I are witnesses. And His Name through faith in His Name has made this man strong, whom you see and know: yes, the faith which is through Jesus has given the man perfect soundness in the presence of you all.”
“Now I know, brethren, that you acted in ignorance, as did your rulers. But what God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that Christ should suffer, He has fulfilled. Repent therefore, and turn about, so that your sins may be blotted out and that times of refreshing [the new birth in the Gentile dispensation of grace] may come from the Presence of the Lord. And He shall send Jesus the Christ, who has been appointed for you, whom heaven must receive until the times of universal restoration [i.e. the millennium] of which God spoke by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said to the fathers, ‘The Lord God will raise up from among your brethren a prophet like me. You shall listen to Him in whatever He will tell you. And it shall come be that every soul that will not listen that Prophet will be utterly destroyed [Heb. ‘cherem‘] from among the people’.”
This brings us back to Zechariah 5:3-4 as does Revelation 11:1-4:
“Then I . . .(place your name here: John represents you as Christ’s end-time Bride throughout the Scroll of Revelation). . . was given me a measuring reed like a rod [which is the “flying Scroll” and inflexible Absolute of THUS SAITH THE LORD]: and the angel [William Branham] said: Rise, and measure the Temple of God [i.e. Gk. ‘Naos’ or Sanctuary] and the Altar [of Incense], and those who [are sanctified and] worship there. But omit the Outer Court of the Temple, because it is given over to the Gentiles: and they will trample the holy city for forty two months [the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week]. And I will empower My two witnesses to prophesy a thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the Earth [in Zechariah 4]”.
“Judgment must begin at the house of God” (I Peter 4:17) as indicated by the dimensions of the flying Scroll representing the measure of the Porch from which the Levites proclaimed the Law, as confirmed by Revelation 11. So Christ will “purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver” (Malachi 3:3). Judgment came on the world church system when it made a final repudiation of the Word by rejecting the revelation of the Seven Seals, since which the Lord has been calling the wise and foolish virgin out from every church organization into “the unity of the faith . . . for the manifestation of the Sons of God . . . and the translation” (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:1-4; Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:52).
The curse that goes out “over the face of the whole earth” is written on both sides of the Scroll (Zechariah 5:3) as the two tables of the Law were “written on both their sides” (Exodus 32:15), likewise the Scroll of Redemption was “written within and on the back side and sealed with Seven Seals (Revelation 5:1). . . But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound [his end-time Message], the mystery of God which He has [already] declared to His servants the prophets should be finished [and the Capstone placed on the Pyramid showing that Redemption is Over].”
Revelation 10:8-11, “Then the voice which I had heard from heaven spoke to me . . . (place your name here) . . . again, and said, Go and take the open Scroll that is in the hand of [Christ] the Angel who stands [in judgment] upon [Rome, the Beast from the] sea and upon [the once Protestant USA, the beast from] the Earth. So I went to the Angel, and told Him to give me the little Scroll. And He said, Take and eat it, [become one with the Word]; and it will be bitter to your belly, but sweet as honey in your mouth. [The stimulation of revelation will rejoice your soul, but you will have to bring your rebellious body and mortal spirit subject to the faith]. And I took the little Scroll from the angel’s hand, and ate it, and in my mouth it was as sweet as honey, but when I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. And He told me, You must prophesy again about many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings”.
This we have done since we recognized Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming to we Gentiles in the office of Son of man, understanding He is no longer Mediator but Judge (John 5:27) and also King of kings since all of the saints crowned Him by their revelation (Revelation 5:8-14). We realize Brother Branham’s Message proclaimed “the day of vengeance of our God” (Isaiah 61:2), and according to Malachi 4:6, those whose hearts are not restored to the faith of our apostolic fathers will be purged when He “smites the Earth with a curse” because we have heard the same Voice from heaven confirm the Prophet’s Message saying, “Come out of Rome and her harlot (once Protestant) daughter churches, [you who are] My people, that you do not partake of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues”.
Revelation 22:10-12, “And the seventh angel, Brother Branham, said to me, Do not seal the revelations of the prophecy of this Scroll: for the time [of the manifestation of the Sons of God and your full redemption] is at hand. Let he who is evil be evil still: and let the filthy be filthy still: and he who is righteous be righteous still: and he who is holy, be holy still. Behold [now that the Seals have been revealed] I am coming quickly [without further delay for intercession (Revelation 10:6)], bringing My recompense to repay every one according to his doings”.
This is “the curse that goes forth over the face of the whole earth” as foretold by the prophet Zechariah more than 2,500 years ago. Every one in the circle of this Message is “prophesying the revelation again, and again, and again about many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings”. This is what Brother Branham meant when he said, “I’ll ride this trail once more”; he was not speaking of a “return ministry” (Hebrews 9:27). Having been presented with the Keys to liberty and eternal Life most behave like a foolish widow who lives in pleasure and is dead while she lives (I Timothy 5:6) thus our ministry is mainly to souls who are imprisoned now. Can you see Revelation in Zechariah and Zechariah in Revelation? And have you recognized the seventh angel in the visions of Zechariah and John? When Los Angeles sinks beneath the Pacific, the curses on the Scroll will take effect upon the non-elect during the great tribulation. The Sixth Seal will mark the end of the Gentile dispensation and grace with the Seventh Trumpet calling Israel’s elect to their true Atonement and the Seventh Vial distinguishing and purging the foolish virgin from the false church by the Ordeal of Jealousy.
Revelation 6:12-17, “When the Lamb opened the Sixth Seal I saw a tremendous earthquake [and Los Angeles sank beneath the ocean]. The Sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the Moon became as blood. The Stars of heaven fell to the Earth as when a fig tree, shaken by a violent wind, drops its unripe fruit; the sky vanished like a Scroll when it is rolled together, and every mountain and island were dislodged (Revelation 16:18-21). Then the kings of the earth and the aristocrats, the wealthy, the generals, the powerful, and every one bond or free, hid themselves in the caves and amongst the rocks of the mountains; and called to the mountains and to the rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; for the great day of His wrath is come; and who can stand before it”?
Galatians 3:10-14, “Those who depend upon the works of the Law live under a curse, for it is written: “Cursed is every one who does not abide by all that is written in the Scroll of the Law so as to do it.” That no man is justified by the Law in God’s Presence is evident, for “The just shall live by faith.” But the Law does not rest on faith, for “He who does these things shall live by them [i.e. works].” Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us, for it is written “Cursed is every one who hangs on a tree,” in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith”.
God has two means of dealing with sin. One is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on Calvary as Kinsman Redeemer for Adam’s race: this will expire at the Seventh Trump and Sixth Seal. (The 144,000 elect Israelites, like Christ’s end-time Bride, were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary because each were foreknown as receiving the fullness of the Word). The second option, Divine judgment under the works of the Law to which Israel is subject, will come into effect “over the face of the whole Earth.” The Law is as an inflexible rod of iron and when Israel became subject to the Law they came under condemnation and spiritual death, because no man can meet the requirements of God’s Absolute and be justified by his works, hence the Law is a curse that condemns without remission.
When the Scroll flies across the skies it will bring Divine judgment “over the face of the whole Earth,” bringing all of the non-elect under the Law. “According to one side of the Scroll every one who steals will be purged out. The eighth Commandment on the second table of Law says, “You shall not steal” and concerns your duty to your neighbour (Exodus 20:15). In the days of Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel He will ask, “Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me. But you say, How have we robbed You? In tithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse, even this whole nation, for you have robbed Me” (Malachi 3:8-9; Nehemiah 13:10). And He will sift that nation, sealing 12,000 from each Tribe with the baptism of the Holy Spirit before Armageddon destroys all life on earth (Revelation 7:1-8). And He will purge the saved non-elect Gentiles who will also be martyred in the Great Tribulation.
“And every one who swears falsely shall be cut off according to the writing on the other side of the Scroll.” This is the third Commandment on one side of the first table, “You shall not take the Name of the Lord your God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His Name in vain.” This pertains to your duty to God (Exodus 20:7).
The “theft” immediately meant is similar sacrilege to that complained of in Nehemiah 13:10 where the people robbed God by neglecting to give Him His due and “bring all the tithes into the storehouse” (Malachi 3:10), while they built their own houses, forswearing their obligations to Him in supporting the Levites; therefore, the “houses” they build shall be “consumed” with God’s “curse.” Literal theft and perjury probably accompanied their virtual theft and perjury as to God’s natural Temple (Malachi 3:5). Stealing and perjury go together, for the covetous and fraudulent perjure themselves by God’s name without scruple, puffed up by narcissism and the pride of prosperity (Proverbs 30:9).
The thief and the false swearer are taken as examples, one from each table of the Law. They stand for all sinners and God will visit all sin, whether committed against Himself directly or against His creatures. The two tables of the Law stand on the same basis, and no man dare pick and choose to which he will render obedience. The anathemas apply inflexibly to both, and once the curse enters it takes up its abode and consumes all. In vain do those who incur the curse shut themselves up from justice for it will inevitably enter even when they think themselves most secure, and take permanent lodgings. Nor will it remain idle, but will destroy until not only the contents but the most durable parts of the house are consumed as the house of a leper (type of the sinner) was to be utterly removed (Leviticus 14:34-35; I Kings 18:38). The destruction of a tent or house was an ancient form of punishment signifying the exclusion of the offender and his family from the community (Deuteronomy 11:6; II Kings 10:27; Daniel 2:5; 3:29).
Mark 12:29-31, “Jesus said, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, You shall love your neighbour as yourself. There are no other commandments greater than these”.
Fraudulent and perjured transgressors of the Law will be purged from Judea, and at the end of the world as we stand there is no tolerance of impenitence for anyone anywhere. “This is the curse that goes forth over the face of the whole Earth”. nl699.htm
