Fidel Castro Ruz. His Legacy will Live Forever

November 26, 2016 — Fidel Castro was the embodiment of struggles against global capitalism, committed to a World of Peace, a World of truth, where people join hands, a World of understanding, a World of tolerance and respect . . . "a man of tremendous integrity, with an acute mind and sense of humour, committed in the minute detail of his speech to social progress and the advancement of humankind, conscious of the dangers of the US-led war and the Worldwide crisis, with exceptional skills of analysis and understanding of his fellow human beings, with a true spirit of internationalism and a tremendous knowledge of history, economics and geopolitics."

Fidel's passing occurs at a time of crisis and upheaval of the World capitalist system. The World is at a critical crossroads. At this juncture of our history, most progressive movements towards socialism have been destroyed and defeated through US led wars, military interventions, destabilization campaigns, coups d’état. The socialist project in Cuba prevails despite the US economic blockade, CIA intelligence ops and dirty politics . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Comment: Before Fidel Castro's revolution, Cuba had been controlled by the Jewish Mafia from the US, running gambling, prostitution and other criminal businesses. Commentaries on Castro and Cuba show the USA in brutal and bloody darkness not only in Cuba but throughout the world; increasingly so as it nears the union of church and state in transition to the image of the Judaeo-Roman beast of Revelation 13.

All empires need enemies of the state in order to redirect the anger of their own citizens outwards towards an evil other. Cuba effectively serves that purpose for the western hemisphere—a supposedly evil example standing up to the good empire . . . (globalresearch.ca).

Comandante Castro, a lawyer by education, with a true sense of justice for humanity, led a Revolution in his native Cuba to free his people from a brutal dictator, murderer and of course, what else, a puppet of the US, Fulgencio Batista. Fidel has essentially freed Cuba from 500 years of colonialism . . . defied Washington's multiple attempts to oust him, and more than 600 US secret service attempts to kill him . . . withstood a brutal, illegal, international blockade, initiated and also brutally enforced by Washington with sanctions against any country in the world that wouldn't follow the embargo dictate of the US, against his country for almost 60 years . . . followers will continue in his spirit fighting against capitalists cum neofascists' ruthless exploitation (globalresearch.ca).

Liberation of Aleppo . . . Relief of Escaping Imprisonment

President Al Assad
November 29, 2016 — The prolonged dehumanization of the majority of the Syrian people, exploitation of their children as cynical props to further the NATO & Gulf state geo-political objectives in the region, overt and covert endorsement of NATO State-proxy terrorism, the tacit endorsement of economic terrorism via the illegal US/EU sanctions against Syria, all amount to crimes against Humanity and the Syrian people. The #FakeNews "regime change" cohorts are seeing their pyramid of lies being dismantled stone by stone, by the very people they have been claiming to "protect" for almost six years.

The Syrian Arab Army's remarkable east Aleppo advancement continues: Four more districts freed today, including the pivotal region of Sakhour. In the last 48 hours alone, 12 east Aleppo districts have been liberated. From one area to the next, the "moderate" terrorists are melting down. Most important news today though is the SAA's recapture of the Suleiman al-Halabi Water Pumping Station. The Aleppo water crisis is over! Since 2012, Turkish-backed "jihadists" have withheld water from Aleppo's residents as a means of blackmailing them into supporting the "revolution" . . .

Comment: In . . . the worst defeat for US-backed forces since the outset of the war for regime-change in Syria nearly six years ago, government troops, backed by forces from the Lebanese Hezbollah movement and Iraqi Shia militias, have retaken over 40 percent of eastern Aleppo, the last urban stronghold of the so-called "rebels" . . . Syrian army units have conquered 20 square kilometers out of the total of 45 square kilometers making up eastern Aleppo.

The government advance has been extremely rapid, suggesting a rout of the US-backed militias. The ground offensive follows two weeks of intense Syrian air strikes, launched after a month-long cessation of bombing by both Syrian and Russian warplanes . . . The government advance has led to tens of thousands of civilians fleeing the areas controlled by the Islamist militias for safety (wsws.org).

The Major Purveyor of 'Fake News' is the CIA-Corporate Complex

CIA logo
November 28, 2016 — The US corporate media, its strings pulled by the modern version of the Central Intelligence Agency's old Operation MOCKINGBIRD media influencing operation, is laughably accusing Russia of generating "fake news" to influence the outcome of the American presidential election. In a November 24, 2016, article in the CIA-connected Washington Post, reporter Craig Timberg reported: "Russia's increasingly sophisticated propaganda machinery—including thousands of botnets, teams of paid human 'trolls,' and networks of websites and social-media accounts—echoed and amplified right-wing sites across the Internet as they portrayed Clinton as a criminal hiding potentially fatal health problems and preparing to hand control of the nation to a shadowy cabal of global financiers." The Post's article is worthy of the CIA-generated propaganda spun by the paper at the height of the Cold War-era MOCKINGBIRD.

Contrary to what the Post reported about right-wing accounts of Hillary Clinton's ties to "a shadowy cabal of global financiers, the vanquished Democratic presidential nominee and her husband, via the slush fund known as the Clinton Foundation, was closely linked to a variety of "shadowy global financiers," including those who serve as executives of Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan Chase. The Clinton cabal was more at home in the gatherings of the secretive syndicates of the Bilderberg Group, Bohemian Club, and the Council on Foreign Relations than they were at labour union and student meetings . . .

Waiting for the Barbarians

November 27, 2016 — When we look back on this sad, pathetic period in American history we will ask the questions all who have slid into despotism ask. Why were we asleep? How did we allow this to happen? Why didn't we see it coming? Why didn't we resist?

Why did we allow the corporate state to strip away the rights of poor people of colour and force them to live in terror in mini-police states? Why did we build the world's largest system of mass incarceration? Did we not see that the rest of us would be next? Why did we agree that those defined by the state as terrorists could not only be deprived of their rights but be assassinated? Did we think the state would restrict itself to persecuting and murdering Muslims? Why did we remain silent as the state arrogated to itself the right to detain and prosecute people not for what they had done, or even for what they were planning to do, but for holding religious or political beliefs that the state deemed seditious? Why did we stand by and permit the state to torture? Did we not see that once rights became privileges the state would one day revoke them?

The failure of our capitalist democracy was collective. It was bred by ignorance, indifference, racism, bigotry and the seduction of mass propaganda. It was bred by elites, especially in the press, courts and academia, who chose careerism over moral and intellectual courage. Our rights as citizens were taken from us one by one. There was hardly a word of protest . . . Why didn't they challenge Barack Obama's signing into law Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act? Section 1021 overturns the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act, which prohibited the military from acting as a domestic police force. The section also permits the military to carry out extraordinary rendition of US citizens, strip them of due process and hold them indefinitely in military detention centers.

Why didn't the legal profession fight against the Obama administration's misinterpretation of the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force Act as giving the executive branch the right to order the assassination of US citizens? How did lawyers and judges allow the misuse of the Espionage Act to target and imprison whistleblowers? How did they permit the Supreme Court to define unlimited corporate contributions to electoral campaigns as a right to petition the government or a form of free speech? Why did they allow those branded as terrorists by the state, and allow poor people of colour, to be locked for years in solitary confinement or special detention centers without fair trials? Why were they silent as the state built 'black sites' around the globe, including in Chicago, to torture? . . .

Everyone will be constantly watched. The prisons will swell. Militarized police will no longer be confined to operating in marginal communities. Lethal, indiscriminate force by the state will be common. The courts will condemn with little or no evidence. The press will utterly unplug itself from reality and speak to us as if we lived in a functioning democracy . . .

Comment: Read Daniel and Revelation. The Black Nobility is European and British, not American. Well did the Prophet say the United States rejected her last opportunity for national repentance on the jubilee of Laodicea.

Believe the Token

A token is a sign or evidence symbolizing or guaranteeing some quality or condition, and in each age there was a token. When Adam took Eve back to himself he surrendered his dominion and ours to Satan, bringing death upon all creation, but God placed His children under the token of the blood of an innocent life surrendered in their stead (Genesis 3:21-22).

When it came time for the exodus the Israelites slew a lamb without spot or blemish for each household, a type of Christ, and painted the evidence or token of the life on lintel of the door, and the Angel of death passed over all houses displaying the token but took the lives of the first-born of man, bird and beast belonging to those houses that did not have the token on display (Exodus 12). And God remained true to that Token when He manifest in virgin-born flesh to meet sin's price on Calvary as KINSMAN Redeemer for Adam's fallen race (I Timothy 3:16).

Miscegenation is accursed of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Genesis 1:11, 25-26; Deuteronomy 7:1-3; 23:2-3) yet applauded by apostate clergy and carnal politicians under the hypocritical 'politically correct' euphemism 'multiculturalism.' However miscegenation with Cain's race is genocide to Adam's race since the offspring are not in the Book of Life which is Adam's genealogy. They cannot breed back into Adam's race and are without redemption because Jesus Messiah was "the last Adam," He was not the last Cain.

In the days of Noah physical and spiritual miscegenation was universal as it is now (Matthew 24:37). "The Lord repented having made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart" because He cannot display His attributes as Saviour and Father to a hybrid race not sprung from His Word (Genesis 6:6; John 6:63). The physical and spiritual Serpent's seed are (Heb.) 'cherem,' "dedicated to destruction for the glory of the Lord." But Noah was perfect in his Adamic pedigree and faith and God instructed him to build an ark and preach salvation to all who would join his crew, yet in one hundred and twenty years Noah did not win one convert. And this is the condition of the world today. After the Flood God renewed the Adamic Covenant with Noah and gave him the token of a rainbow, a sign He will never again destroy all life by flood, and God has been true to His promise for four thousand years (Genesis 9:1-17).

When God renamed Abram (Heb.) 'exalted father,' to Abraham 'Father of nations' or 'Gentiles' (Genesis 17:1-14), He gave him the token of circumcision in the flesh signifying he and his seed were separated from the seed of the Serpent and the heathen Adamic nations unto the Lord God. And we as Christians are circumcised in heart and ears from the world unto the revealed Word (Colossians 2:11).

The saints of every New Testament dispensation received a token as the evidence of a virtue of Christ. II Peter 1:1-12, "Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them who have obtained like precious faith with us in the righteousness of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ [the one Person of God]: Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, according as His divine power has given to us all things pertaining to [eternal] Life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us to His own glory and virtue, by which He has granted to us His exceedingly great and precious promises, that by these promises you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world because of passion."

Church Age Body of Christ"For this very reason also, applying all diligence add to your faith virtue; and to virtue add knowledge; and to knowledge add temperance; and to temperance add patience; and to patience add godliness; to godliness add brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness add charity. For if these virtues are in you and increasing, they will render your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ neither inactive nor unproductive, while he who lacks these qualities is blind and short-sighted, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. Therefore brethren, be all the more zealous to make your calling and election sure: for if you do this you will never fall; for in this way an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ will be liberally ministered to you."

"I will therefore always remind you of these things, though you know them, and are established in the present Truth".


For two thousand years Christ has been building His Body, the Church, "adding precept upon precept; line upon line; here a little revelation (or faith which is a clear understanding of His Word), and there a little more." His Body is His Bride of all Ages baptized into Him by"the present Truth" for her Age (I John 1:7), for the Master Builder did not pour out the fullness of the Word on the Day of Pentecost. His "first works" (Revelation 2:5) laid the foundation of faith, a clear revelation of the true Onenness of the godhead, not a second or third person but the One Person of God manifest in the virgin-born Jesus of Nazareth, to fulfil the part of our KINSMAN Redeemer and meet sin's price on Calvary. With this understanding we are obligated to repent and be baptized in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38-39).

Jesus is the Author and Beginner of the creation of God (Revelation 3:14), the first begotten in the NEW CREATION of God-men. His True Church, His Bride of all Ages is the continuation of the same creation begotten by the Spoken Word for her day quickening her soul to new Life in Christ, bringing her mortal spirit and corruptible flesh subject so that her life becomes a written epistle of that part of the Word. As the diagram shows, Christ's Body is made up of Pentecost, a holy convocation from about AD30 – 53 wherein the saints understood and held the true faith pure and undefiled, though in a small portion; Seven Church Ages of Part-Word, and the holy convocation of this present age wherein "we who are alive and remain" possess "that which is perfect," Christ, the fullness of the Word through the mysteries of the Seven Thunders which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals (I Thessalonians 4:17; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:1-7).

Following Ephesians 4:11-15 as our diagram explains, Christ's Body is patterned after "the perfect Man, unto the measure of the full stature of Christ." Unlike our first birth through passion our NEW MAN is not built from the outside of muscles, bone and mortal spirit, but from the inside of the inside, our soul, puts on the virtues or character of Jesus Christ proven by overcoming the fiery darts or Satan and trials of this earthly life by the Word of God and prayer, separated from the world unto Him.

Now as Peter taught there are seven virtues or essential qualities that make up the character of Christ and His Bride, each displaying the Token or evidence of the measure of His Life in that dispensation. As you know, "When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord lifts up a standard against him" (Isaiah 59:19). So if you study the Seven Church Ages in Revelation 2 and 3, you will note how the Adversary attacked the saints in each of those Ages and see from our diagram how the Life of Christ in the saints of each dispensation, dressed in "the whole armour of God" held the Sword of the Spirit to his throat in the firm hand of faith. We may be confronted by physical beings, but we war against the demons that rule their lives and actions (Ephesians 6:10-18).

Please bear in mind, the diagram does not represent the individual saint, but the Body of Christ of all Ages. The token of the Ephesian Church Age (AD53 – 170) was faith, the rock of revelation from Above, which is the mind of Christ in you (Matthew 16:16-18; I Corinthians 2:16). In the Smyrnean Church Age (170 – 312) God added virtue to faith, which is strength and power to rest in the surety of God's spoken Word and hold the Sword to the throat of the Enemy. In Mark 5:25-34 a certain woman who has suffered from an issue of blood twelve years and spent all she had on doctors, learning that Jesus had come, she pushed through the crowd and touched his garment believing God would heal her, and was immediately made whole. "Immediately knowing in Himself that virtue—strength, miracle-working power—had gone out of Him, Jesus turned about in the press, and said, Who touched My clothes?"

Prophesying of the Messianic age of redemption and completion Paul described the lack of character of apostate Christians, "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power [or virtue] thereof: from such turn away" (II Timothy 3:5).

Seven Church AgesThe election in comparison with world population was diminishing as the Body grew, and the love of the world and the things of the world eclipsed the S_O_N Light from the Church typed by the Moon so that at the end of the Pergamean Church Age (312 – 606) spiritual darkness wrought such ignorance the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church organized in AD325 at the First Nicaea Council, produced almost a thousand years of Dark Ages in the near total eclipse of the Thyatira Church Age.

Pergamos means "thoroughly married" and the Judaeo-Roman Universal church in time the Empire of Imperial Rome morphed into the Holy (sic) Roman Empire. The enemy came in like a flood, melding Pagan Rome's Babylonian religion with Christianity, introducing the pagan trinity of gods, baptism in three Titles instead of the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, worship of the dead, a clerical hierarchy, impersonation of Jerusalem's temple worship with papal high priest, holy water, the sacrifice of the Mass and the Bible-denying Apostle's Creed (so-called).

The Spirit of God raised up and added the standard of knowledge in opposition to ignorance. Scriptural knowledge to judge good from evil, truth from error, and right from wrong. Isaiah 8:20, "To the Law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this Word, it is because there is no Light in them." Romans 3:4, "Let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That you might be justified in your sayings, and might overcome when you are judged." God added the sure knowledge of His unchanging Word as the token of His Life in the saints of the Pergamean Church Age. "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation" (II Peter 1:20; Galatians 1:8-9).

Do not doubt by mixing reasoning with your knowledge. Just Know, and trust, and obey and take God at His Word. How He will answer our prayers I do not know, but "the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much"  (James 5:16). Having prayed, thank the Lord for His answer, for any guidance you might need, and wait.

In the Thyatira Church Age (606 – 1520) Satan mounted His red horse and rode forth "to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and he was given a great sword" (Revelation 6:4). He was forcing the mark of the beast, killing all who refused to worship Rome's trinity of gods, or do obeisance to the pope as will repeat over the next several years (Revelation 13:15-18). Thus the faith, which was in the heart of the saints, was lost through Judaeo-Roman Catholic martyrdom, bringing the Dark Ages upon Christendom as illustrated in the diagram. The token added into the Body in Thyatira was Temperance or self-control, bringing your mortal spirit and body subject to Christ, the Husband of your soul.

I Peter 2:11-25, "Dearly Beloved, I implore you as aliens and exiles to abstain from passions of the flesh that war against your soul. Maintain good conduct among the Gentiles, so that, although they may defame you as evildoers, they may see your good works, and glorify God in the day of visitation."

"Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution: whether it is to the Queen as supreme, or to governors as sent by her to bring criminals to justice and to encourage the well-behaved. For it is God's will that by doing right you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish men. Live as free men, yet without using your liberty to cover up wickedness, but live as servants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the Queen."

"Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect; not only to the kind and gentle but also to the overbearing. For one is approved if, mindful of God, he endures pain while suffering unjustly. For what credit is it, if when you do wrong and are beaten for it you shall take it patiently? But if when you do right and suffer for it you take it patiently, you have God's approval."

"For this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in His steps. He did no sin; no guile was found on His lips. When He was reviled, He reviled not again; when He suffered, He threatened not; but trusted in Him Who judges righteously. He Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we being dead to sins, should live to righteousness. By His stripes you have been healed. For you were straying like sheep; but have now returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls".


In the Sardis Church Age (1520 – 1750) God added the virtue of patience as the token of this division of the Body. James 1:3-4, "Know this that the trying of your faith produces patience or steadfastness. But let patience have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."

Abraham was patient with God, waiting for Isaac for twenty-five years after the promise. Noah was patient for a hundred and twenty years as he laboured building his ship on top of a mountain in a time when there were no oceans and rain had never fallen on the earth. He patiently preached his prophecy to passers-by, promising salvation from the wrath to come if only they would lend a hand and join the ship's Company. Noah was steadfast and patiently testified despite the scoffers and ungodly.

God added patience to Moses' character in face of his hot-tempered wife, and when confronted by Pharaoh's magicians who were able to impersonate his 'first pull' and several plagues. Moses endured as Pharaoh's heart hardened through unbelief. Daniel's colleagues Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego exhibited patience or steadfastness for God's deliverance in Nebuchadnezzar's fiery furnace, as did Daniel in the Lion's den.

The hundred and twenty souls in the upper room patiently waited ten days for the Promise. Jesus did not tell Luke how long, but said "tarry in the city of Jerusalem, until you are endued with power from on high" (Luke 24:49).

The token of the virtuous Life of Christ added to the Body in the Philadelphian Church Age (1750 – 1906) was godliness, to be like Jesus, who is God. Like the promises and condemnations in the Messages to the angel in each of the seven Church Ages, these virtues are cumulative in the Body as it was edified or built up so that the Philadelphian Church Age should exercise faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance and patience, making the saints like God. Oh, you say, that's too much! But Jesus said, "You are Gods" (John 10:34; Psalm 82:6). "You are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect [mature, lacking nothing necessary to completeness; consummate in integrity and virtue]" (Matthew 5:58; Genesis 17:1).

Paul explained that the five-fold ministry will be with the Body "Till we all come into the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ" (Ephesians 4:13). Perfection encompasses godliness.

Then in the Laodicean Church Age (1906 - 1963) God added brotherly kindness which requires the Christian to place himself in the situation of a brother. "Peter asked Jesus, how often shall I forgive my brother who sins against me? Until seven times? And Jesus told him, I say not until seven times: but, until seventy times seven" (Matthew 18:21-22). Have faith that someday the Lord will open his heart to the revelation. Exercise steadfast patience to endure with temperance and knowledge to understand what is in his heart, meekness and longsuffering virtue in brotherly kindness.

Finished Body of ChristThe Church Age saints with PART Word were baptized into the Body by Christ's intercession for their ignorance of the fullness while the Book was sealed and completed in March 1963. Then Christ claimed the title deed to redemption, broke its Seven Seals, descended with the open Book and revealed the Seven Sealed mystery through His Prophet William Branham. Our first diagram showed a breach between the Body of Church Age saints and the Capstone; one can only cross that chasm through the fullness of the Holy Spirit by a clear revelation of the Message of the seventh angel which "finished the mystery of God" and introduced the second or (Gk.) parousia Coming of Christ, the fullness of the Word (Revelation 10:7).

The Body of Christ is completed by the Capstone made up of "we who are alive and remain," our Token in the Life of Christ which is Charity or agapao Love. In I Corinthians 13 Paul explained that although one may exercise all of the gifts of the Spirit, unless he is born-again and possesses God's own love, he is nothing. Redemption is over; the Church was perfected and finished in March, 1963, as was Christ's mediation; now the sleeping saints are waiting for the last member of Christ's end-time Bride to recognize their day and its Message and take their place in the headstone of the Body.

As a chain is only as strong as its weakest link so the whole stature of your being must possess and be controlled by these virtues; only then will the Token of the Life of Christ be on display. "When Jesus came into the world, He said, Sacrifices and offerings You have not desired, but a body you have prepared for Me . . . I have come to do Your will, O God" (Hebrews 10:5, 7). God wanted a people under preeminence who would fulfil His will and gather glory to Himself. Hebrews 2:10-12, "So it was right and proper that God, who made everything for His own glory, in bringing many sons to glory, should perfect the Leader of their salvation by means of sufferings. For One who makes holy and those who are made holy all have one Father, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brothers. Saying, "I will proclaim your name to My brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will praise you. And again, I will put My trust in Him. And again, Here am I and the children God has given Me".

Jesus was the first such body, the beginner and author of the NEW CREATION of God-men born of His Spirit. His Bride is the continuation of "the creation of God," the same NEW CREATION or Body wherein God will live and breathe for eternity. So we see that the Bible is the story of the One Person of God unfolding Himself or changing His form from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts to the flesh of His glorified Family.

Now hold the Token over the promise with your immoveable faith. "I assure you, He who believes on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and more than these will he do; because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My Name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My Name, I will do it" (John 14:12-14; 15:7).

Is it healing you need; concerns for a family member or loved one? Ask and you shall receive.

Luke said, "If all the things that Jesus did were written at length, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books which were written" (John 21:25). And Brother Branham said, "Just what I've seen in my own ministry, seen Him done, you couldn't pile the volumes on this platform here, if I wrote it in details, what I seen Him do, just in my own ministry—seen Him do it. See? He had more success in my ministry, than He did in His own. Now, remember, He had more success now, not me; He had. Glory. Hallelujah.

He had more success in Jeffersonville, than He did in Nazareth. He did. In that wicked city and this wicked city . . . Amen. Glory. 'Cause He could perform no miracles there, but He did here. He finally broke through here. He got it done here. He might've had to get people from somewhere else, but He got it done anyhow. So He had more success right here, than He did in Capernaum, or Nazareth in that . . . He done more miracles right here in this Tabernacle, than He did in the entire ministry on earth. That's right. He did it. Now, what about the rest of the world? Oh, my. Now, that's what He done.

Now, remember: He done. Now, I didn't say that I done (See?), 'cause I didn't do it. I just stood . . . And I just loved Him and just submitted myself to Him, and said what He said; and the Holy Spirit went to the other people, they believed what He said, and then He did the work. That's all.

If He can get all of us believing it . . . What would He do right now, if He can get us all believing it right now, right? There wouldn't be a feeble person around the country. That's right. If He could get everybody to believe it, it'd all be over. See?

Hold your Token over your unmovable faith in His promised Word, and Satan will go. God always honours His Token. He honoured in Egypt. He honoured it in Jericho when Rahab hung the red cord from her window. He expects us to display His Token over our faith, to Satan and all his unbelieving cults and denominations, that we believe His promise is true, and He will do what He promised to do.

The Token is the Holy Spirit. "For by one Spirit we are all baptized into one Body, and made partakers of His glory." Believe the Token! nl951.htm

Human Rights Violations: North Korea vs. the US

November 24, 2016 — UN Third Committee Resolution L.23 IN, legitimizes stranglehold economic sanctions used as a means to "obliterate" North Korea. But in New York . . . recently published masterpiece, entitled "Blood in the Water," by United States historian Heather Ann Thompson documents the horrific tortures inflicted during the murderous repression of unarmed prisoners. Among those slaughtered in the massacre ordered by Governor Rockefeller, was "Kenny Malloy, His skull had been riddled with so many bullets that his eye sockets were shredded by the shards of his own bones."

Invading with chemical poison CS gas, orthochlorobenzyldene, the heavily armed state troopers began murdering the unarmed prisoners. The tortures to which the "surviving prisoners were subjected were described by victim Frank Smith.

Page 487: "He was chained to a table, 'They say you like to play football, we're going to put this football into you nigger, and then we're going to kill you.' The torturers shoved a football under his chin, and told him if he let it drop, they would shoot him. As recounted by Smith, the troopers kicked him 'repeatedly in the testicles, and were spitting on me, dropping lit cigarettes on me . . . I would flex my body to make the cigarette fall off me, so it wouldn't burn too long.' his legs hung over the edge of the table for six hours until they started to go numb. 'My head was hurting, my back was hurting, and the most excruciating pain I had was in my testicles. It was a very excruciating pain in my genital area.' He was then forced to run through a gauntlet with fifty armed officers on both sides, with broken glass on the floor. Still completely naked, he endured the blows of axe handles and the baton with pig handles as he was forced to run this gauntlet. The pain had been horrendous, 'unbearable pain; my testicles, my fingers gouged, and arms and back,' accompanied by endless barrage of vile racial attacks, slurs."

This was standard torture of the prisoners, including rape:

"An officer pulled out a Phillips screwdriver and told the naked inmate to get on his feet or he'd stab the screwdriver in his rectum . . . then he just started stabbing him."

When the prisoners' attorney, the great civil rights lawyer William Kunstler, witnessed the carnage of mangled dead bodies strewn everywhere on the ground, Kunstler, who had grasped that this was a legitimate political rebellion, wept uncontrollably at the sight of fascism's work . . . of course, Governor Rockefeller, the man responsible for the massacre, was never held accountable, but history condemns him for perpetrating this infamous state terror.

The New Yorker, May 2, 2016 describes current torture and murder of mentally disabled prisoners in Florida prisons. This is documented in an article by Eyal Press. As prisoner Darren Rainey, diagnosed as schizophrenic, had defecated in his cell, after being tormented by his guards, he was, as punishment, put in a "shower," "locked in a stall whose water supply was delivered through a hose controlled by the guards. The water was over one hundred and eighty degrees, hot enough to brew a cup of tea . . . It was later revealed that Rainey had burns on more than ninety percent of his body, and that his skin fell off at the touch."

Rainey was boiled to death in the shower, but it was learned that many other prisoners had been subjected to the same torture of being boiled alive. None of the perpetrators of this torture were held accountable. Prisoners were routinely beaten. Other prisoners were starved, some starved to death. Any witnesses who might have spoken against this abuse were threatened and silenced . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Obama tries to cover Tracks by ordering a Mop Up of Jabhat al-Nusra Leaders

Two-faced Obama
November 15, 2016 — Washington created al-Qaeda back in 1988 to fight Soviet influence in Afghanistan. Similarly, a quarter of a century later, the Obama administration created and armed the so-called Syrian opposition, that was later transformed into a dangerous and pretty disgusting weapon—ISIS . . . It's true that Pentagon has wasted thousands of tons of ordinance, while pretending that it's trying to destroy ISIS and its affiliates in Iraq and Syria, but there has been no real struggle as it was officially admitted by the US State Department spokesman Mark Toner . . . according to the revelations made by a Jabhat al-Nusra militant in his interview for the German journal Focus, Washington has been directly supplying the group with TOW systems to increase its fighting capacity.

But when Trump surprised everyone by winning the recent presidential election, the Obama administration has started covering up its criminal activities in the remaining 70 days before the new president is inaugurated. Thus, the group that was engaged in a number of fishy schemes of the Neocons over the years has found itself in the "to be cleaned up" list.

Pentagon knows the location of every hiding that shelters terrorist leaders, as has been repeatedly stated by US officials, however those hidings remained undamaged for years . . . now the Washington Post would report that President Obama ordered the Pentagon to find and kill the leaders of Jabhat al-Nusra . . . most Western media sources remain silent about the fact that Obama's newfound determination is provoked by the fact that Trump is taking office pretty soon. Should there be an inquiry into the activities of the Obama administration after it's gone those terrorist leaders would be able to testify against Obama and his affiliates . . . they are being murdered in a hurry now.

'Fake News' on Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Ukraine, Yemen

November 24, 2016 — A smear campaign is currently underway accusing the alternative and independent online media of producing "Fake News" . . . analysis confirms that the corporate media rather than the alternative media are routinely involved in distorting the facts and turning realities upside down. They are the unspoken architects of "Fake News".
  • They deny Israeli war crimes against Palestinians,
  • They fail to mention that the US, Britain, France, Turkey and Saudi Arabia are providing covert support to both Al Qaeda and the Islamic State (ISIS-Daesh),
  • They disregard the fact that two Neo-Nazi parties are part of the Ukrainian government coalition,
  • They accuse the Syrian government of killing their own people.
In the words of Mark Taliano:
"The War on Syria is not a "civil" war; the "uprising" was not "democratic"; Assad does not "starve his own people"; Assad does not "bomb his own people", and, of course, there are no "moderate" terrorists."
The US and its allies are directly or indirectly involved in several illegal wars: Afghanistan, Ukraine, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen. These acts of military aggression are casually upheld by the mainstream media as "humanitarian wars" under the doctrine of "Responsibility to Protect (R2P).

In turn, the ongoing US-led bombing raids against Syria and Iraq resulting in countless civilian deaths are portrayed by the MSM as a "counter-terrorism campaign" against the Islamic State, which just happens to be financed by America's closest allies, including [Dönmeh Jew-ruled] Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

Comment: The mainstream corporate media is desperate. They want to suppress independent and alternative online media, which it categorizes as "fake news". Readers on social media are warned not to go onto certain sites. The intent of this initiative is to smear honest reporting and Truth in Media. Our analysis confirms that the mainstream media are routinely involved in distorting the facts and turning realities upside down. They are the unspoken architects of "Fake News". One area of routine distortion is the use of fake videos and images by the mainstream media (globalresearch.ca).

A pushback is coming to the Internet's success in giving the world access to diverse opinions and dissenting information. Politicians, mainstream media and technology giants are taking aim at what they call "fake news" (consortiumnews.com).

Cynthia: Flesh-Eating Synthetic Bacteria that has gone Wild

September 14, 2016 — the first synthetic bacteria—Cynthia, created "to combat oil pollution in the Gulf of Mexico" which, according to the various reports that are often ignored by the corporate media, has mutated and has started attacking animals and humans. Now this highly lethal microorganism is on its way to Europe . . . an oil slick produced by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill covered over sixty thousand square miles . . . Washington decided to take drastic measures . . . at that time when an artificially created microorganism nicknamed Cynthia was unleashed . . . was created and funded directly by BP. It was believed that Cynthia feeds on oil, but it turns out now that it is equally willing to consume all forms of organic life as well . . . Full story: journal-neo.org

Is Obama staging a Colour Revolution in the US

November 12, 2016 — Over the last eight years, the Obama administration has acquired a long list of tricks that were used against undesired governments in various parts of the world, while the most effective among them is the so-called "colour revolutions," where essentially a coup d’état is achieved by media manipulation and large mobs. US intelligence services are now prepared to unleash such a revolution on the home front, since they are fairly concerned about their future under Trump, as the Washington Post would report.

The fact that Obama still believes in Trump's inability to replace him in the White House has already been announced by the White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest. At the same time, he would point out, while commenting on the anti-Trump protests in the US, that the right for freedom of expression must be exercised without violence, clearly alluding to the current administration's arsenal of "peaceful" tools that would allow it to get rid of Trump.

That is why we already are witnessing a wave of 'protests' being unleashed under the control of the Obama administration. The corporate media and social networks are openly arrayed against the incoming 45th US President. These very tactics have been used by US intelligence agencies in Brazil, Nicaragua, Hong Kong, Thailand . . . across the Middle East and Eastern Europe to unleash a 'colour revolution.' In some countries, such actions have brought foreign government under the direct control of the White House, as in Ukraine, Brazil and several other countries . . . Full story: journal-neo.org

False Promise of EU Dream: Moldova and Bulgaria elect Pro-Russian Presidents

November 13, 2016 — As the European Union continues to spiral towards an all-out disaster due to significant economic problems, the migrant crisis, cultural decay, and an overall loss of purpose, countries like Moldova and Bulgaria, which were once blinded by the false promises of the European dream, are beginning to shift course back towards the only nation in Europe today that is experiencing a remarkable renaissance—yes, Russia.

In the second round of presidential elections . . . the pro-Russian candidates Igor Dodon of Moldova and Rumen Radev of Bulgaria have come out victorious over their pro-European rivals . . . Full story: theduran.com

Malachi 4:5 - 6

"Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful Day of the Lord: and he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse [following which] the righteous shall tread down the wicked; for they will be nuclear ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, says the Lord of hosts".

The Lord anoints five different prophets with the measure of the Spirit with which He anointed Elijah under the reign of Ahab king of Israel and his pagan Serpent's seed wife Jezebel. Elijah means 'Yahweh is God'; his mission was to bring His apostate people of the Northern Kingdom of Israel back to the one true God (I Kings 18:39) away from the worship of Baal and Astarte (Semiramis or Venus) introduced by Ahab and his idolatrous wife Jezebel, daughter of Ethbaal (Baal with him), the priest of Astarte who murdered Pheles and usurped the throne of Tyre for thirty-two years. Ahab and his party represented Baal and Yahweh as essentially the same God in order to reconcile the people to idolatry as if it were "a light thing to walk in the sins of Jeroboam" and worship the God of Abraham under the symbol of a calf (Exodus 20:3-4; I Kings 16:31). Emperor Constantine and the non-Semitic self-styled Jews of Revelation 2 followed the same process at the First Nicaea Council where they married the apostate first church of Rome with the Roman state and its Babylonian trinity as they created Pharisaism in Babylon, and later Islam. Protestantism has since apostatised and they too claim to worship the God of Abraham, yet also without revelation (John 4:24). Elijah's work was to confound these sophisms and vindicate the one true God to the exclusion of all idols.

God instructed Elijah to anoint Elisha to succeed him so when he was caught up to heaven in a chariot of fire and horses of fire (II Kings 2), he received a double portion of the Spirit; and whereas God performed sixteen miracles at the hands of Elijah, He performed thirty two miracles through Elisha's ministry. The third prophet anointed by that spirit was John the Baptist who introduced Jesus' first Coming. He preached and baptized for repentance but no miracle is attributed to him (Isaiah 40:3; Malachi 3:1; Matthew 3:1-11; 17:12; Mark 1:2-5; Luke 1:17-18; 3:2-17; John 1:15-37). After John's martyrdom and the death and resurrection of Jesus Messiah, his ministry turned the heart of our apostolic fathers to the primitive Church born of the faith of Jesus (Malachi 4:5, 6a; Matthew 11:7-18; 17:11). The fourth Elijah was William Branham (1909-1965) whose Message was vindicated by untold thousands of miracles (Isaiah 61:2b; Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:10-11) to reveal "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday and today, and forever" (Hebrews 13:8; 4:12. The fifth 'Elijah' will be the prophet who ministers to Israelites returned to the Land of the Covenant after its abandonment by the self-styled Jews; he will be associated with another prophet anointed by the Spirit that endued Moses "These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth" (Zechariah 4:12-14; Daniel 12:5-7; Matthew 17:3-4; 24:31; 11:2-12; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 11:3-12; 22:2).

Shadows and types

Elijah told King Ahab, "there shall not be dew nor rain all these years according to my word . . . three and a half years later he told Ahab, I will send rain upon the earth" (I Kings 17:1; 18:1; Luke 4:25; James 5:17). The Moses and Elijah of Revelation 11 will preach Israel's former or "teaching" rain for three and a half years of Daniel's Seventieth Week during which "if any one desires to harm them, Fire [of their 'third pull'] or spoken Word will devour their enemies and if any one desires to harm them, he must be killed [II Kings 1:9-15; I Kings 18:36-39]. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy [Israel's latter or "harvest" rain cannot fall until after their martyrdom, resurrection, glorification and assumption up to heaven in the pillar of Cloud witnessed worldwide on television (Revelation 11:7-13]: and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will." God will separate the borderline believers from the 144,000 elect Israelites.

When the Lord told Elijah to anoint Elisha to succeed him in the prophetic office he symbolically threw his cloak upon Elisha, then recovering it went his way. Elisha acted at once on God's first call, burnt his wooden plough and an ox, bid farewell to family and friends, and went after Elijah to serve him. After meeting his commitments Elijah crossed Jordan to the place where the Lord had told him he would be caught up to heaven by a whirlwind and asked Elisha if he had any special request before he is taken away (II Kings 2). Elisha asked for a double portion of the prophetic spirit that was upon him—the double blessing of the first-born [Deuteronomy 21:17]—Elijah's spiritual son heir to the prophetic office and gifts of his master (II Kings 2:9).

Elisha saw Elijah taken up, and taking the cloak that fell from Elijah he smote the waters saying, "Where is the Lord God of Elijah?" The waters parted from one side to the other and Elisha went over: a type of the Church following Jesus, seeing His power, seeing His miracles.

One day the mother of James and John asked Jesus, "Grant that my two sons may sit in Your Kingdom, one on your right hand, and one on the left".

Jesus asked, "Can you drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?" They said "We are able." And He said, "You will indeed drink of My cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with."


James the Great was decapitated in AD44 by Edomite Herod Agrippa seeking to ingratiate himself with Jewry. His accuser was brought to repent of his conduct by the apostle's extraordinary and undaunted courage, and fell at his feet to request pardon, professing himself a Christian, and resolving that James should not receive the crown of martyrdom alone. Hence they were both beheaded at the same time. And although John died a natural death at a very advanced age, spiritually his was the longest and deepest martyrdom of any of the apostles, and for the sake of Christ he underwent many and severe outward sufferings.

But to sit at My right hand, and on My left, is not Mine to give, and shall be given to them for whom it was prepared by My Father [before the foundation of the world]." As signified by the cherubim over the Mercy Seat on the Ark of the Covenant which Bezalel made "of pure gold [signifying deity]: two and a half cubits long, and one and a half cubits wide. And he made two cherubim of gold, of hammered work beaten out of one piece, on the two ends of the mercy seat; one cherub on one end, and one cherub on the other end: he made the cherubim of one piece with the mercy seat. And the cherubim spread their wings upward, covering the mercy seat, their faces toward each other and the mercy seat" (Exodus 37:6-9; Matthew 20:20-28).

"These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth" (Zechariah 4:12-14). The Cherubim represent Moses and Elijah and ultimately the redeemed saints of the Old Testament, in particular those under the Old Covenant, and the redeemed New Testament saints: the Church represented by the golden Menorah and the 144,000 elect Israelites represented by the Table of Shewbread which were in the sanctuary (Revelation 5:8-10). We were all present when the Lamb claimed and opened the Book of Life. Like Martin Luther, their sole standing is on the blood-sprinkled mercy seat toward which they gaze as the redeemed shall forever, and are "the habitation of God through the Spirit" at one with God in Christ (Ephesians 2:22). On that ground we are the habitation of God, from which His glory is to shine upon the world (Matthew 5:15; John 17:5; I Corinthians 2:7-8; 6:19-20; Revelation 21:22-23). Between the Cherubim was the glory of God, Jesus Christ (Psalm 99:1; Matthew 17:2-3; Luke 9:29-35; Acts 1:10-11; Hebrews 9:5).

After Calvary He resurrected and instructed His disciples, "that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His Name [which Name is LORD JESUS CHRIST according to Matthew 28:19] among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And you are witnesses of these things. And I will send the promise of My Father upon you: but wait in the city of Jerusalem, until you are endued with power from on high".

And when the Day of Pentecost was fully come they were all baptized with the same Holy Ghost baptism or cloak that was upon Jesus as the same Holy Spirit that endued Elijah came upon Elisha in a double portion. The Church can do "greater (more) works" than He could, because we are many (John 14:12), and you'll be His witnesses in Roma, Gunnedah, Black Hill and Easley, Eagle Bridge, Makurdi, Pupplagutta, and all over the world. Every Brother and Sister born of the Spirit of God is a witness of the resurrection of Jesus Christ "and I will be with you always, even to the end of the world".

Elijah' was "a hairy man, and girt with a girdle of leather about his loins" (II Kings 1:8). His hairy lambskin coat was assumed by Elisha; the "hairy" cloak afterwards became a prophet's conventional garb (Zechariah 13:4). John the Baptist "was clothed with camel's hair and with a girdle of leather about his loins" (Mark 1:6).

Like a Bedouin, Elijah and John the Baptist after him delighted in the desert, the heights of Carmel and the caves of Mount Horeb as William Branham, the Elijah of our day was a man of natural wilderness, deserts and mountains. But like Elisha, Brother Branham also ministered in centres of civilization in many countries. Whereas Elijah was a stern enforcer of the Law which had been forgotten and trodden under foot, Elisha's calling was to herald the divine tenderness, with tempting invitations to restore the hearts that had been broken by his predecessor with the hammer of the Law.

In delivering the Fourth Seal Brother Branham quoted Revelation 19:13-17 and said the Lord is smiting the antitype of Jezebel, the false church and her Ahab, the false prophet which will be eaten by wild beasts and fowls of the air as the dogs licked Ahab's blood and devoured Jezebel.

"Jezebel is the type of the modern church today because Catholics and Protestants are joined together now . . . Now, we notice, killed by a command of God was Jezebel—was killed because God had Jehu [Russia] to go down there and have her throwed out of the window and kill Jezebel, and the dogs eat her flesh. (Is that right?) literal Jezebel. Ahab, her king head: dogs licked his blood as the first Elijah predicted . . . And Jezebel and Ahab were the head of them churches—church and state, all together. And Elijah [William Branham] revealed Ahab's sins to him and commanded the whole church to turn back to the true Word . . ."

"Now if you want to see their bodies, let's turn over here to Revelations 19 after the Word slays them. Now, the Word's going to kill them. You know that. All right now, you just watch and see what happens when Christ coming in Revelations 19, beginning with the 17th verse . . ."

"And His vesture was dipped with blood, and He's called King of king and Lord of lords." (In the 13th verse, He's called the Word of God. See? Now, here He is King of kings and Lord of lords) . . ."

"And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: . . . (Out of His mouth, like from God's mouth to Moses' mouth. See?) . . . and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and . . . tread the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God. And He hath on His vesture (a Name) . . . on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KING, and LORD of LORDS."

"And I saw an angel . . .
(Now, watch, now He comes forth smiting. Who's He smiting? Jezebel and her Ahab, false prophet). And I saw an Angel standing in the sun; and He cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls of the air in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together to the supper of the great God."

"He feeds them to the beasts and birds. Now, watch over here in the other chapter here of the Book of Revelations [2:18-23]. And . . . (Just a minute.) "Kill with the sword and death and beasts of the earth." See? The Jezebel church, her actually body, is to be eaten by fowls and beasts of the earth. Just exactly like Ahab and Jezebel was in the natural, so are they to be in the spiritual form a church. Do you see what I mean? All right."

"Elijah (Oh.), Elijah was the prophet in the days of Ahab and Jezebel, natural. And He's promised to do the same thing according to THUS SAITH THE LORD, in the Word to the Jezebel, spiritual: His Spirit form of ministry."


"Watch. Elijah, though in his day properly and profoundly vindicated, could not turn them back to the Word. Is that right? Though Elijah tried with everything; he did everything; he showed them signs and wonders; and they laughed in his face. Same thing they'll do with this spiritual. See? He could not turn them back to the Word."

"Now, listen, Church, close now you that is going to be confused on this. Out of the millions in the world in the days of Elijah, when Jezebel and Ahab was reigning in type of the antitype today—out of the whole world, there was only seven hundred thousand saved of Elijah's preaching . . . Elijah never knew even one of them was that way. He thought he was the only one saved until God opened one of the Seals and showed him the mystery of the Book, that He had seven hundred thousand that never bowed down to them creeds that they had. When God opened His Book to Elijah, He said, "Now, wait a minute, son; I got seven hundred thousand that's tucked around out there: got their names on the Book since the foundation of the world. They're Mine." Whew. God opened the Seals. That's the reason I think John was doing all that shouting the other night. He must've seen his name on there" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 326:5 - 330:4).

After his anointing Elisha approached Bethel which was situated on a high hill and was the principal seat of calf and Baal worship, and was accosted by a group of irresponsible young men who scorned him because he was a prophet of Yahweh rather than Baal. "Go up [into our city], you bald head, [a mark of leprosy and disgrace an impure and expelled person, for priests were meant to be whole (Leviticus 21:5; Number6 6:5)] what do you want from us?" Note that to this day Jewish men and Muslims cover their head contrary to Scripture (Genesis 1:26; 5:1; 9:6; I Corinthians 11:7), and Muslim women cover their head with a kerchief or vail when in the Old and New Testaments uncut hair signifies she is covered by the headship of her father or husband (Numbers 5:18; I Corinthians 11:1-16).

The scorn of the delinquents attacked not so much the person of Elisha as the office supernaturally bestowed on him at his first appearance in that capacity, and in Bethel could not be allowed to pass in silence. He cursed them in the Name of the Lord and two she bears tore forty-two of the louts.

Brother Branham said, "If they'd have been taught reverence and respect, they'd have walked out there before that prophet of God and have asked for prayer for themselves. But they had been taught to snicker and laugh and to make fun about like the children of today. No, too many of them today would make fun at a street meeting; they'd make fun at the preaching of the Gospel.

So Elisha cursed them in the Name of the Lord. Not because of the children, but because of the irreverent parents that'd brought the children up that way to disrespect God. Two she bears come out and killed forty-two of them. Now, that's irreverence. God demands respect. When they disrespected His prophet, they disrespected Him; no matter if they didn't believe, they ought to kept their mouth shut, stay away from it. But no, they had to put in their nickel's worth. They had to say something that they ought not have said. And what happened to them? (Respects, p. 18:133-134). We may be certain this is a type that will be repeated in the near future (It becometh Us to fulfil All Righteousness, p. 6:39; Revelation 13:5).

Jesus' baptismJohn the Baptist's public ministry in the wilderness by the River Jordan, some seventy miles north-east of Jerusalem, was to call Israelites to the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins and to apprehend true holiness. He railed against their presumption that descent from Abraham, Isaac and Israel ensured eternal security. For it is a maxim among the Jews that "All Israel have a portion in the world to come, for it is written: Thy people are all righteous" (Mishnah Sanhedrin 10:1, Talmud Sanhedrin 90a). One midrashic passage reads, Said R. Levi, "In the age to come Abraham will sit at the gate of Gehenna [hell], and he will not permit a circumcised Israelite to go down there" (Jacob Neusner, ed. Genesis Rabbah ("Vayera" 45:8), Vol. II (Atlanta: Scholars Press, 1985) 182). "[The wicked Jews] are at that time under sentence to suffer in Gehenna, but our father Abraham comes, brings them up, and receives them" (Talmud b. Eruvin 19a). The final blessing that is made at a 'Covenant of Circumcision' ceremony (performed on the eighth day of a male infant's life) includes the words: 'as a reward of this (circumcision), the living God, our Portion, our Rock, has ordained that the beloved of our flesh be saved from the abyss, for the sake of the Covenant which He has set in our flesh. Those who are descendants of Abraham according to the flesh will most certainly share in the eternal kingdom, even though they be faithless sinners and disobedient to God'.

Pointing to the pebbles baptized by the Jordan John cautioned, "Presume not to say confidently within yourselves, We have Abraham as our father, for I tell you that as God raised Adam from the dust of the earth, and children to Abraham from Sarah's dead womb, He is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham." And John denounced the Pharisees, Sadducees and other apostate Jewish sects, warning of the wrath that was to come upon Jerusalem [under General Titus] and Israel's disinheritance as they "transgress the Commandments by their Talmudic tradition" (Matthew 15:3), unbelief and infidelity—"for without holiness, no man shall see the Lord" (Hebrews 12:14).

It was the time of the Passover requiring all adult male Israelites to appear in Jerusalem. Deuteronomy 16:1-6 and the prophecy of Daniel 9:25 informed John and all Israel that the Messiah he was ordained to forerun must be in Jerusalem that Passover. Jesus was his cousin but having lived in the wilderness from the age of nine John "could not recognize Him but He who sent him to baptize in water, said 'He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit'."

Judea was apostate and knew it not: being religious they were expecting Messiah, but the Talmudic traditions of their denominations had made the Word of God of no effect to them and they were looking for His third Coming as a General to expel Rome and restore the Kingdom to Israel rather than their KINSMAN Redeemer. So when Jerusalem "sent priests and Levites to ask John who he was, he confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, "I am not the Christ." And they asked him, Then are you Elijah [of Malachi 4:5 preceding the great and dreadful Day of the Lord]? And he said, "I am not." Are you the Prophet [Messiah of Deuteronomy 18:15]? And he answered, "No." So who are you, that we may have an answer for those who sent us? What do you say about yourself? He answered, "I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaiah" (Isaiah 40:3; Mark 1:3l Luke 3:3).

A prophet is a sign of judgment and no genuine prophet needs to speak for himself. God will vindicate him by His Word and works and the elect will not be deceived. Now the priests and Levites sent by the Pharisees could not see John's vindication in the Scriptures he quoted to identify himself because they were looking for the Elijah who would come before the consummation (Malachi 4:5; Matthew 17:10) after which the Kingdom would be restored to Israel (Acts 1:6) and Messiah would reign from Jerusalem throughout the millennium.

"They had been sent by the Pharisees [who are now called Jews). And they asked Him, Why are you baptizing, if you are neither the Messiah [coming to take the Throne as Son of David (Matthew 9:27; 15:22, 20:30-31) nor Elijah (of Malachi 4:5, 6b, William Branham), neither that Prophet (of Deuteronomy 18:15 and 18, Jesus Messiah)?

"John answered them saying, I baptize with water: but among you stands One, whom you do not know. It is He who comes after me, the thong of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie".

The blindness prophesied of the Jewish religious leaders is mirrored today by the world church system (Isaiah 29:10; Romans 11:8, 25; Revelation 3:17) that claims we are in "the time of the end" which commenced after the revelation of the Seven Seals (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4). But since they believe John was the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Matthew 17:11, which he was not, they are not seeking a prophet. Yet "the Lord God can do nothing without first revealing His secret to His servants the prophets" (Amos 3:7) and displaying a sign in the heavens (Genesis 1:14; Psalm 19:1-4; 50:6; Matthew 24:3, 22-28; Romans 10:18; Revelation 10:1-4). Until the prophet of Malachi 4:5, 6b and Revelation 10:7 reveals the mystery of the Seven Seals there can be no "end time," no rapture and no first resurrection. And because of their error they are looking for the visible second physical return of the glorified Man in the heavens contrary to Matthew 24:22-28. His precious feet will not touch this earth until after the consummation (Malachi 4:1-3). It is the unseen second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming of Christ "as a thief in the night" (I Thessalonians 5:2; II Peter 3:10; Revelation 3:3; 16:15; 3:17-19) in W_O_R_D form they must recognize (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:28; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7).

Matthew 17:1-13"As Jesus, Peter, James, and John came down from Mount Transfiguration where in a vision they had been shown a preview of Jesus' return glorified preceded Israel's two witnesses of Revelation 11 who also signified the prior resurrection of the sleeping Church Age saints typed by Moses who died on Mount Nebo, and the translation of "we who are alive and remain" represented by Elijah who was translated. His disciples asked Him, Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come before the Day of the Lord (Malachi 4:5)? Jesus replied, [the fourth] Elijah [William Branham] truly shall first come, and restore the faith once delivered to the apostolic fathers" [Malachi 4:6b; Jude 3]. The manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial will signal the end of the Gentile dispensation, then the Church will be resurrected and translated before Israel's second 'Moses' and fifth 'Elijah' come or receive their anointing (COD, p. 1091:Q336). "But I tell you that Elijah has already come (Malachi 3:1), and they did not recognize him, but have done to him as they pleased. In a similar way the Son of man will also suffer at their hands. Then the disciples understood that He was speaking of the decapitation of Israel's third Elijah, John the Baptist".

After Abel's death the Lord excoriated Cain: "The voice of your brother cries unto Me from the ground." And four months before Brother Branham's death the late Orman Walker, a minister from Oregon related a dream in which the Prophet said, "I'll ride this trail once more." It corresponded with the spiritual dreams of several other saints repeated in the sermon, "And Knoweth it Not." This meant he will preach his Message once more. Three months later he said, "Why, me an old man, suffered all my life, why did He heal me now? I believe I'll ride this trail again; I got to bring a Message. And I say to my Father tonight (as Junior seen in a dream the other night of the wings of this Dove moving in these windows here), Lord, Your servant's reporting for service. Amen, I'm ready" (On the Wings of a Snow White Dove, p. 35:225).

In Revelation 10:5-7 we read, "The Angel [Christ] which I saw stand [in judgment] on [Rome, the beast from] the sea and upon [the beast from] the earth [the United States image of Rome wherein the apostate (once) Protestant churches are united with the State under Rome] lifted up His hand to heaven, and swore [an oath] by Him Who lives forever and ever, Who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be 'chronos' time no longer [or delay as all Seven Church Ages and Christ's Mediation are fulfilled and redemption is over]: but in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel [William Branham], when he shall begin to sound [His Message—the mysteries of the seven unwritten thunders of Revelation 10—the revelations contained in the Seven Seals]—the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets".

John the Baptist foreran Messiah's first physical or (Gk.) 'erchomai' Coming, and "laid the axe to the root of all trees" or spiritual principles of Pharisees, Sadducees, Herodians, Essenes, Zealots and all other Jewish sects. Three and a half years after his death John's Message "turned the heart of the apostolic fathers—Peter, James, John, Luke, Paul, etc., to the elect children of God" (Malachi 4:6a). When God commissioned His fourth Elijah William Branham, the Shekinah like a star descended as he was baptizing in the Ohio River and a Voice said, "As John the Baptist foreran My first Coming, your Message will forerun My second [or (Gk.) 'parousia'] Coming" (Revelation 1:20). Fifty-two years after his death "the Message of the seventh angel" is "riding this trail once more," preaching the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 which is the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6 calling the children of God out from the Judaeo-Roman church and her Lutheran, Methodist, Pentecostal, etc., harlot daughters into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Revelation 18:4; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:52).

In Malachi 4:5 God promised: "I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful Day of the Lord." This will be the consummation of life and its aftermath foretold in Malachi 4:1-3 which are yet to be fulfilled.

Malachi 4:6a promised: "Elijah shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children." In John's day the fathers were Reuben, Ephraim, Judah, Napthali, etc., but they died more than a thousand years before John was born so his ministry could not turn their heart. But from the Day of Pentecost three and a half years after John's death, his Message resulted in the heart of the apostolic fathers turning to God's elect children out of every nation, tribe and tongue in Adam's race. And we should remember that since Calvary, God's servant nation Israel has been disinherited "until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in" (Romans 11:25), then, and in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week the Israel nation will be born-again in one day, all 144,000 of them (Isaiah 66:8).

Malachi 4:6b continues: "and [after two thousand years another] Elijah will turn the heart of the children to [the faith of] their [apostolic] fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse." This Elijah was most definitely not John but the Gentile prophet William Branham (1909 – 1965) whose Message restored "the faith once delivered to the apostolic saints"  (Mark 9:11-12) and brought Christ the fullness of the Word back to earth in W_O_R_D form (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7), warning of the imminent curse that will smite the earth and instructing us how to escape God's wrath.

After the Church is taken away Israel's two witnesses—two Israelites of the blood of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, not Jews—will receive their anointings for ministry. One man with the Spirit that endued Moses the Law giver who ministered only to the Israelites, the other man with the Spirit that was upon Elijah who was a prophet to all nations.

There has been confusion as to whether these two prophets might be the original Moses and the original Elijah. They will be a second 'Moses' and a fifth 'Elijah' because "It is appointed to men once to die, but after this the judgment"  (Hebrews 9:27). Moses has already died once; these two men must die as martyrs and then resurrect (Revelation 11:7-12). Brother Branham confirms this when he says, "They're not here; [Moses and Elijah] won't be here until the [glorified] Church is taken away" (COD, p. 1091:Q336). The original Moses and Elijah will be among the "friends of the Bridegroom" at our Wedding Supper in the Air. They are already glorified and impervious to death or harm so they cannot possibly be the two witnesses of Revelation 11 who must yet die.

And in his Message "The Rapture" (p. 34:166-180) Brother Branham quoted Matthew 18:16, "In the mouth of two or three witnesses let every Word be established" and showed us that there were three 'raptures' in the Old Testament—Enoch, Elijah, and Jesus—and there will be three 'raptures' in the New Testament—the first included the original prophet Moses (Matthew 27:50-53; Ephesians 4:8). The second 'rapture' in the New Testament will be "we who are alive and remain" after the resurrection of the sleeping saints, and the third 'rapture' in the New Testament will be the second 'Moses' and the fifth 'Elijah'.

Time to Trump the Climate Hysteria

November 18, 2016 — The Clexit (Climate Exit Coalition) has pledged to assist any government or politician seeking to exit the Paris Agreement and to curb the wasteful and destructive UN/IPCC . . . Clexit could call on over 190 well-qualified climate realists from 26 countries to provide scientific, business, legal and political support and advice.

Firstly, de-fang the Paris Climate Treaty by refusing to sign it, by ignoring any deals signed by others without a supporting referendum, or by giving notice of formal withdrawal.

Secondly, de-fund the global warming industry—no tax payer funding for the UN/IPCC, no government money for climate tourism or conferences, no government grants for climate propaganda posing as “research”, no tax exemptions for green “charities” and no government subsidies for green energy.

Thirdly, de-staff all government climate bureaucracies.

And fourthly, re-educate—ensure that the climate curriculum in schools and universities is based on good science and real evidence, and not political agendas.

These four actions—de-fang, de-fund, de-staff and re-educate will cool the climate hysteria, with huge and immediate benefits for tax payers, jobs, industries and energy cost and security. It will also end the doomsday horror stories terrifying our young people. And if there is additional carbon dioxide in the air, our Earth will be greener and produce more food . . .

Putin withdraws Russia from International Criminal Court

November 17, 2016 — Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree Wednesday to withdraw Russia from the International Criminal Court, which rules on such grave charges as genocide and crimes against humanity . . .

Putin's decree, published on the Kremlin's website, comes a day after the UN General Assembly's human rights [Laodicea] committee approved a resolution condemning Russia's "temporary occupation of Crimea" and blamed Russia for rights abuses such as discrimination against some Crimean residents, such as Tatars. Russia annexed Crimea in March 2014 from Ukraine following a hastily called referendum, a move that led to crippling Western sanctions. A separatist insurgency erupted in eastern Ukraine the following month, backed by Russia . . . Full story: apnews.com

Syria: US-NATO supported Terrorists involved in Countless Atrocities

November 13, 2016 — Whereas the US, for example, carpet bombed Falluja in Iraq, the SAA, doesn't have that "luxury" since it avoids killing Syrian civilians at all costs. The terrorists control occupied territories with unspeakable barbarism. A witness to the massacre at Adra described the scene in these words:

The rebels began to attack the government centers, and attacked the police station—where all the policemen were killed after only a brief clash because of the large numbers of the attackers. The attackers then headed to the checkpoint located on the edge of the city before moving to the clinic, where they slaughtered one from the medical staff and put his head in the popular market. They then dragged his body in front of townspeople who gathered to see what was happening. Bakery workers who resisted their machinery being taken away were roasted in their own oven. Jabhat al-Nusra and Islamic Front fighters went from house to house with a list of names and none of those taken away has been seen since.

President Al AssadWhen the Syrian army would try to enter Adra the Jihadists would throw women and children from the 20,000 people it captured off the top floors in front of the army."

Nasr also discussed the lies propagated by imperialists, and believed by multitudes. He says that for the first three weeks of the so-called "revolution," police and security personnel were ordered to not carry guns. It was during this time that 15 of Nasr's friends were killed by so-called "peaceful protestors".

This report is corroborated by peace activist Janice Kortright who writes:

The media lies about Syria . . . have been absolute . . . I think media heads should face trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity for the one-sided false narrative they've been spreading since the Syrian War began. Even earlier . . . throughout the entire "Arab Spring" orchestrated by the west using "jihadists" (paid mercenaries, criminals and brain-washed radicals) to create a "New Middle East" dedicated to western dominance and control over natural resources.

This soldier, whom we interviewed in Damascus, is a personal hero and friend. A friend to whom I've entrusted my life and would again any time anywhere. He was one of the soldiers in Daraa in March 2011 (where and when the violence in Syria began). This is his account and matches several others' first hand accounts of events there.

The life of a Syrian soldier is so hard. A terrorist paid by the US or Saudi or Qatar makes about $300 or $400 a month. A Syrian soldier receives 1/10th of that. They fight an enemy that is often inhuman. I know of one soldier who was cut to pieces while his terrorist captors had his father on the phone listening to the torturous death of his son.

FALSE: The Syrian war began when President Assad brutally put down peaceful protests.

TRUE: The Syrian War was planned in earnest by the US since 2005. The Syrian soldiers and police were not even allowed to carry weapons until the "peaceful protesters" had slaughtered several hundreds of police and soldiers.

Kortright interviewed a Syrian soldier who described the soldiers' (unarmed) and fatal encounters with the initial, externally-orchestrated uprisings, in these words:

Soldier: I don't know, we didn't see them face to face. My best friend was shot, so I felt anger and sadness. I felt anger because we were ambushed in this way and all we had was batons, we couldn't defend ourselves. We had to run, they were shooting us like birds. And the demonstrators blocked all the entrances leading to us, so no ambulances was able to reach us whatsoever, at that point. I carried my best friend and what matters for us now is to protect him and protect ourselves until we get to safety. While we were running, we were seeing our friends the civil police, how they were being killed in front of us, or shot at.

Similarly, investigative reporter Rick Sterling debunks the propaganda that "Assad kills his own people" in his description of the initial, violent protests:

"In reality, there was a violent faction from the start. In the first protests in Deraa, seven police were killed. Two weeks later there was a massacre of 60 security forces in Deraa."

These same "peaceful protestors" were the spearhead of the Western-orchestrated "regime change" operations, wherein the Muslim Brotherhood and foreign operatives played central roles. The "Arab Spring" was a foreign intelligence operation from the beginning.

Recent estimates suggest that terrorists from about 100 countries are currently infesting Syria. This, coupled with the legal interventions of the "Axis of resistance," and the illegal war crimes of NATO and its allies, means that the dirty war on Syria is increasingly a world war . . .

Sanhedrin asks Putin and Trump to build Third Temple in Jerusalem

Last Trump
November 10, 2016 — The Nascent Sanhedrin is calling on Russian President Vladmir Putin and US president-elect Donald Trump to join forces and fulfill their Biblically-mandated (?) roles by rebuilding the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem . . . the election of Trump, who has promised to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, coupled with Putin's expressed desire for the Temple to be rebuilt, prompted the Jewish court to send a letter offering the two the opportunity to act as modern-day Cyrus figures: non-Jewish kings who recognize the importance of Israel and the Temple.

Cyrus the Great, King of Persia in the sixth century BC, announced in the first year of his reign that he was prompted by God to make a decree that the Temple in Jerusalem should be rebuilt. [This flattery and his daughter, Ivanka's conversion to Pharisaism is matched by Mr. Trump's chutspah: "Let me tell you," he declared during a speech in Milwaukee last March, "Ivanka Trump is the new Esther]".

Cyrus sent the Jews under his rule back to Israel with a considerable sum of money [$$$$$$] with which to rebuild the Temple. The Sanhedrin plans to call on the two world leaders to take up this ancient Biblical decree and support [$$$$$$] the Jewish people in their holy mission . . .

The Sanhedrin's letter notes that Trump's upset victory was due to his support of Jerusalem, and reminds Trump of his campaign promise to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, effectively recognizing the city as the capital of Israel. The Jerusalem Embassy Act, passed in Congress in 1995, initiated the moving of the embassy, but has been vetoed since every American president since. The Sanhedrin calls on Trump to withhold the veto after he takes office . . .

Last month, the United Nations Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (UNESCO) passed two resolutions denying any connection between the city of Jerusalem and the Jewish people, ceding to Islam a religious monopoly on many of Judaism's holiest sites. Full story: breakingisraelnews.com

Comment: The Temple will be rebuilt and United States and Russia may well team up under Rome to rebuild the Temple after Israel is utterly defeated, disarmed, abandoned by most of her non-Semitic self-styled Jews, reoccupied by genuine Israelites in Jacob's lineage, after the US mainland is invaded and a Satan-incarnate Pope is ruling one world government from Jerusalem, a corpus separatum between the State of Palestine and the State of Israel as per UN Resolution 181 of November 29, 1947. The partnership between the USA (refinanced by Vatican gold) and Russia (re-colonised and Judaeo-communised) will fail in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week when the Pope forces Rome's mark of the beast and Europe switches alleigence to Russia. This will see the nuclear anihilation of Vatican City State and the United States of America followed by Armageddon and the consummation.

These and other Scriptural realities have been overlooked by nowtheendbegins.com. The end-time began on about March 8, 1963 when Christ fulfilled Revelatuion 4, 5, and 10:1-4.

Century after Balfour Declaration: UK should face Uncomfortable Home Truths

Zionism
November 6, 2016 — This month marks the ninety-ninth anniversary of the Balfour Declaration and the beginning in earnest of preparations for next year's centenary . . .

“His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”

. . . in contrast to Israel's insistence today that Zionism merely equates to "Jewish self-determination," the creation of a "Jewish state" in Palestine directly contradicted the principle of self-determination . . . At the time of Balfour's letter, Jews constituted approximately 10 percent of Palestine's population (at the time of the first Zionist Congress in 1897, that figure was 4 percent). Even by 1947, Palestinian Arabs were the easy majority—two-thirds of the population . . . “if the crude arithmetical conception of democracy were to be applied now or at some early stage in the future to Palestinian conditions, the majority that would rule would be the Arab majority . . . the Zionist dream ran counter to the principles of democracy” . . . Full story: middleeasteye.net

Comment: Britain's Prime Minister Lord Salisbury (Robert Arthur Talbot Gascoyne-Cecil) retired in 1902 and was succeeded by his nephew, Arthur James Balfour. Such an ardent Zionist, when he lost the Prime Ministership, rather than retiring gracefully, Balfour continued in politics as Minister for Foreign Affairs. A demotion, yes, but Arthur James was continuing his work for a 'greater cause,' and when he finally did retire, he and his nieces and nephews continued their work for 'Zionism.' So from 1902 when his Foreign Secretary Joseph Chamberlain's offer of Uganda was rejected by Theodor Herzl, Balfour was at the required post to ensure Rothschild's moves to obtain Palestine were covered (Arthur James Balfour was a Zionist).

Yale Professor lets Students skip Test in Wake of Trump Victory

November 10, 2016 — "I am getting many heartfelt notes from students who are in shock over the election returns," the professor wrote in an email to his students, according to Yale Daily News Managing Editor Jon Victor tweeted.

"The ones I find most upsetting are those who fear, rightly or wrongly, for their own families. These students are requesting that the exam be postponed. On the other hand, I am sure that many students have sacrificed to prepare for the test . . . Therefore, I am making the exam optional."

[These students are intellectually unqualified to study, having ignored Killary's record of global bloodshed and destruction, treason and criminality- Ed].

The professor told the class he would "calculate each student's grade both with and without the exam.

The decision irked many social media users, who were quick to blast the students on Wednesday. "And we wonder why they feel entitled and want everything paid for. What a joke," wrote one Twitter user. "Oh, how our hearts should bleed for these poor, shattered little snowflake-children" . . . Full story: fellowshipoftheminds.com

Comment: I have been reading up on the soon-coming invasion of the United States, and with Judaized commo educators and wimpish students the US is defeated already. These students are emotive puppets of the Jew George Soros, incapable of thought and analysis and absent self-discipline. Simultaneous 'spontaneous' protests were organized in 25 cities.

Malachi 3:13 – 4:4

tithing
Let us review and explain Malachi 3:10 – 12. In plain language God is the Logos, and like you and me He is only as good as His Word. His instruction to believers is "make a punctual and full payment into the storehouse of all tithes that there may be provision for the daily sacrifices, and the maintenance of My ministers—then priests and Levites—now the fivefold ministry under the New Testament. Make this an experiment to test My faithfulness to My Word of promise and see if I don't open the windows of heaven for you. There is now a dearth and a scarcity of produce; trade is slow, but prove Me now and see whether your plenty is not in proportion to the free-will whereby you bring in your tithes and heave offerings; and whether I will not immediately send you showers of blessing, whereby trade improves and the earth brings forth in great abundance".

If you are unsure of God, put His Word to the test. If you honour your Word and it seems He has neglected to honour His Word, might it be that you are serving the traditions of men that make the Word of God of no effect (Matthew 15:1-9)?

To "open the windows of heaven" is a metaphor expressing God's showering down plenty, while "shutting up heaven" denotes scarcity (Deuteronomy 11:17). The Lord will pour out a blessing until you say, "It is sufficient"; and your acquaintances will see by your situation that you are blessed and a happy people; your home, business or country will be recognized as blessed because of your obedience, and this will bring Him honour.

Malachi 3:13 – 18, "Your hard words [of doubt in opposition to the conversation of the godly have been injurious, void of all reverence and duty, and blasphemous], constraining Me to prove Myself to you that I am 'the God of judgment' [you doubters sought in Malachi 2:17. As in verse 3:8] you say in your hearts, "What have we spoken against You?"

[What you have secretly said in your hearts I will declare openly]: You have said, "It is vain to serve God:" and "What profit is it that we have kept His ordinance, and walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts? We now deem the arrogant blessed; evil-doers not only prosper; but when they put God to the test they escape [judgment owing to His longsuffering love]."


The wicked prosper but their carnal minds see no benefit in obedience and fail to recognize material rewards are temporal and they will ultimately suffer loss. When we tithe we are not giving of our increase but returning His due of the increase He has provided us. Psalm 50:10, "Every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills." If we do not have sufficient trust and faith to give God what is His property we cannot have faith for Him to provide the ninety percent for our needs. This is presumptuous sin (Psalm 19:13; II Peter 2:10).

Word Bride"You are cursed with a curse for you have robbed [defrauded, cheated] God in tithes and offerings," and the election is off! Christ is marrying a W_O_R_D Bride and Malachi 3:8-9 is His Word.

"[But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound (Romans 5:20) and] those who feared the Lord conversed with one another [in love]: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a Book of Remembrance [called the Lamb's Book of Life] was written before Him for those who feared the Lord, and thought upon His Name. [Herein is their reward—the promise of God's Word—unseen and therefore unrecognized by those without faith (II Corinthians 5:7)]. They shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, My peculiar treasure on the Day of the Lord (Exodus 19:5; Ephesians 1:14; II Thessalonians 2:14; Titus 2:14; I Peter 2:9; Malachi 4:3); and I will spare them [when I pour out My wrath], as a man spares his own son who serves him in filial obedience. Then once more you will return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him".

Psalm 103:11-13, "For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who reverence Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us; like as a father has compassion for his children, so the Lord tenderly sympathizes with those who revere Him".

A prophet is a sign of oncoming judgment as witnessed by Noah, Moses, Jonah, Elijah, Daniel, John the Baptist, Jesus Christ, Paul and Brother Branham. Speaking to natural Israel under the Old Covenant which foreshadowed spiritual Israel under the New Covenant, Amos (3:1-8) cited five natural types to confirm that "the God of Judgment" cannot pour out His wrath on the great and dreadful Day of the Lord without first revealing His secret counsel to His servants the prophets to warn claimants to His Covenant and show them the way of righteousness whereby they may repent of their iniquity, seek pardon, peace and grace and escape the wrath that is to come by faith in Him who died and rose again.

Malachi 4:1-6 warns of the Day of the Lord and of the spirit of Elijah that will anoint two prophets, one before the close of the dispensation of Law and one before the close of the dispensation of grace. John the Baptist was the Elijah of Malachi 3:1 who introduced Christ's first Coming. Three years after his death and more that 2,000 years before "the great and dreadful Day of the Lord" his ministry "turned the heart of the apostolic fathers to those who would be born-again as God's children," not His servant nation, Israel (John 8:35). William Branham (1909 – 1965) was the Elijah of Malachi 4:6b whose ministry restored the heart of God's children back to "the faith once delivered to our apostolic fathers (Jude 1:3) before He smites the earth with a curse [in the consummation turning it to nuclear cinders]".

Malachi 4:1-3, "For, behold, the Day of the Lord is coming, burning like a furnace [as foretold in Malachi 3:2], when all the arrogant happy murmurers, heathens and all evildoers will be stubble: and the day that comes will burn them up, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root or branch [to recover]" (Isaiah 5:24; Zephaniah 1:14-18; Obadiah 1:18; Matthew 3:12). False Christian tares, thorns and briers will be cast into the fire with all sin and corruption (Matthew 13:40-42). As it was in the days of Sodom this is the manner whereby earth will purify itself for the millennium; earth's crust shall fracture and fresh lava will overflow and dissolve the old world.

No true believer is any stronger and spiritually healthy and alive than his knowledge of and adherence to the pure Word of God, as seen by multitudes of examples in the Old Testament. And as it was in the days of Malachi, many, even of those who have served God, were borderline believers: they recognized the prophet and his ministry, learned quotations from his Message, but never took them to God's Holy Bible to ensure they personally were rooted and grounded in the Absolute. Today the last Pentecostal saints are passing while we remain. Doubts without faith have darkened trust and the whispers of their own hearts were reinforced by the mutterings of websites like believethesign or seekyethetruth, "turning away their ears from the Truth unto fables." Now as "scoffers walking after their own lusts, they ask, Where is the promise of His Coming [though they once knew He has come and is present]? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation" (II Timothy 3:4; II Peter 3:3-4).

Brother Branham said, "And we know that the time is near at hand. We see the world in a quivering, shaking condition, knowing that the atoms will soon be burning, and the heavens will be on fire—as the apostle Peter said—and "will burn with fervent heat" (Psalm 50:3; Isaiah 66:15-16; Daniel 7:9-10). The atoms of the earth will catch fire soon. There'll be a relay, and there'll be not even dust left of the people".

"And then what, Lord? Maybe five hundred years from now an old tombstone, blow over yonder in the howling winds, the burning blistering sun, when it lays near the sun for its purification before the millennium, maybe the name of some of the people here will be written on that. Where will their wandering soul be?" (Conferences with God, #61-0410).

Malachi 4:2, But for you [in My Book of Remembrance who believe its promises, rejoice in expectation of its blessings, tremble at its threatenings, walk humbly with God] and revere My Name, the Sun of righteousness [Christ whose Light clothed the primitive Church (Revelation 12:1; Psalm 84:11; Isaiah 60:1-3, 19-20; Luke 1:78-79; Revelation 19:17) shall arise [not destroying like the fire, but] with healing in its beams [restoring natural life to this purified planet]; and you will go forth leaping with joy like calves let out from the stall to pasture"—a simile describing the glorified righteous returning to the earth with Christ.

Malachi 4:3, "And you will tread down the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I shall do this, says the Lord of hosts." In this life the arrogant evildoers often prosper and are happy; they tempt God and are even delivered (Malachi 3:15). But at this point in the Day of the Lord "He who exalted himself shall be abased, and he who humbled himself shall be exalted." The elect will go forth [to Hinnom, a type of Gehenna], and look upon the carcases of the men who have transgressed against the Lord, for their worm will not die, neither shall their fire be quenched, and they shall be an abhorring to all flesh (Isaiah 66:24; 26:5-6; 63:2-3).

In Malachi 4:4 God admonished the Israelites: "remember the Law of Moses My servant, which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments" because you will have no more prophets for four hundred years. Then "My messenger John the Baptist will prepare the way before Me—your Messiah and KINSMAN Redeemer manifest in virgin-born flesh" (Malachi 3:1; Isaiah 40:3; I Timothy 3:16). Until that time you are to follow the institution and obey the statutes and judgments delivered to Moses.

Speaking through Moses the Lord God said, "I will raise up a Prophet from among the Israelites, like you, and I will put My Words in His mouth; and He will speak to them all that I shall command Him (John 8:26). And whoever refuses to hearken to My Words which He speaks in My Name shall be utterly destroyed from among the people" (Deuteronomy 18:18-19; Acts 3:22-23).

Israel's crest"The written Law was an external shadow of good things to come"—the blessing of Abraham under the New Covenant is the internal reality of God's will which is His Word engraved in your heart by faith "and man will no longer teach his neighbour, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know Me, from the least to the greatest" (Jeremiah 31:33-34; Hebrews 8:11). The Body or real substance that cast the shadow of the blessings typified by the Law is Christ the Word in you, the hope of glory (Colossians 2:17; Hebrews 8:5-13; 10:1-5). So until John introduced the Body which cast the shadow the Israelites must hold fast to the shadow revealed by Moses and the audible Voice of the Lord from Mount Horeb (Exodus 9:19). In other words, "The secret things [which cast the shadow] belong to the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed [or foreshadowed in the statutes and judgments of the Law] belong to us and to our children forever so that we may do all the Words of this Law" (Deuteronomy 29:29).

Like you and me, Israel was to "walk by faith not by sight" in all of the Light then revealed and watch as God unfolds more Light (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7), thus avoiding presumptuous sin (Psalm 19:13; Deuteronomy 18:20; II Peter 2:10).

Galatians 3:11-27, "It is evident that no man is justified by the Law before God; for, "The just shall live by faith." And the Law does not rest on faith but makes "works" the conditional ground of justification, and the man who does these things shall live by them"—for without "doing the works" the Law is of no use to men (Romans 2:13, 17, 23; 10:5).

"Christ has redeemed Israelites and proselytes from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us: for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree" that through Jesus Christ the blessing of Abraham might come upon us Gentiles; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith".

"In terms of human relationships, Brethren, no one annuls or adds to a man's will once it has been ratified (Revelation 22:18-19). Now the promises were made to Abraham and his seed. The will or testament did not say, "And to His seeds," referring to many; but as of One, "And to Your Seed," which is Christ. And this is the point: the Law, which came four hundred and thirty years later, cannot invalidate a Covenant previously ratified by God, so as to annul the promise. For if the inheritance is by the Law, then it is no longer by promise: but God has given it to Abraham by a promise".

Jesus Messiah"Why then was the Law given? It was a temporary enactment intervening between the promise but only until its fulfilment in Christ. It was added because of transgressions, to make Israelites more fully conscious of their sins by recognizing them as transgressions of the Law, so as to make them long for the promised Seed and Saviour to whom the promise was made
(Romans 4:15; Galatians 3:23-24); it was given to the hand of Moses, a mediator (Deuteronomy 5:5; Acts 7:38), and promulgated by angels" (Acts 7:53; Hebrews 2:2). Of course before the Law there was no transgression and sin was not imputed to men (Romans 5:13). Therefore "the Law of sin and death was a curse" because no man can keep the Law which would condemn and imprison men for sin but could not justify and release them from sin (Romans 5:20-21; 7:13).

"Angels are all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who shall be heirs of salvation" (Hebrews 1:14). Speaking of the new birth of the elect Brother Branham said, "Then after you recognize the very Word of God was Eagle Food, then you left the other thing. You've then been formed into the living image of the living God. You heard from your theophany. "If this earthly body is dissolved, we have one waiting" (Who is this Melchisedec? p. 17:88; II Corinthians 5:1). The angels or messengers of Deuteronomy 33:2-3, Psalm 68:17 and Acts 7:38 were the theophanies of saints, prophets, and our Lord Jesus Himself. The angels of Acts 7:53 and Hebrews 2:2-3 are prophets who in person or by their writings in Scripture promulgated the Law which God gave to Moses personally, as He personally gave the promise to Abram, and as the virgin-born Jesus He communicated the Gospel personally to His disciples who were the messengers or angels of Acts 1:12-26 who witnessed Jesus Messiah from His anointing after baptism to His resurrection.

Hebrews 2:2-9 "If the Old Testament promulgated by angels [messengers, prophets] was steadfast [being THUS SAITH THE LORD (Galatians 1:8-9)], and every transgression and disobedience [to the Word] received a just recompense of reward. How shall we escape, if we neglect the great salvation of the Gospel which at the first began to be spoken by our Lord Jesus Himself [who is more than a [prophet (Hebrews 1:1-14)], and was confirmed [personally] by the angels [New Testament saints, apostles and prophets] who heard him; God also bearing [them] witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to His own will (Mark 16:15-20; Luke 1:2; I John 1:1-5)?

"For God did not subject the "last days" or Messianic age of redemption and completion which succeeded the Mosaic age to Old Testament angels. But one [angel, the prophet David], testified in Psalm 8:4-6, saying, "What is man, that You are mindful of him? Or Jesus Christ the Son of man whom you honour so highly? You made Him a little lower than the angels; You crowned Him with glory and honour, and set Him over the works of Your hands: You have put all things in subjection under His feet. For in subjecting all things under Him, You left nothing that is not subject to Him. At present we see not all things are subjected to Him. But we see Him who was made a little lower than the angels—Jesus, because of the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour, that by the grace of God He should taste death for every man"  [that we might inherit all things] . . .

As Spirit or theophany God could not die or even bleed so He had to be made lower than the Angels in order to fulfil the part of our KINSMAN Redeemer, taste death and overcome the grave. "He must reign, till He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be destroyed is death" (I Corinthians 15:25-26).

Acts 2:32-36, "This Jesus has God raised up, and [although you Jews will not admit to it] we all are witnesses of this. Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and receiving of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, He has poured forth what you both see and hear. For [the angel] David is not ascended into the heavens [under the blood of bulls and goats]: but he said himself, The Lord [Yahweh] said to my Lord [Messiah], Sit on My right hand, until I make your enemies your judgment seat. [Now, after the Blood of Christ was shed and the heavenly sanctuary cleansed of the accumulated sins of all the Old Testament saints, they could resurrect in glorified bodies, and ascend typing Revelation 15:8]. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God has made that same Jesus, whom you have crucified, both Lord and Christ." So is Jesus a third person of the trinity, or is He the entire trinity? He is the fulness of the Godhead bodily (Hebrews, Chapter Two, p. 53:116-154, 176, 200).

After His resurrection Jesus said, "All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth, go into all the world and preach the Gospel to everyone of Adam's race" (Matthew 28:19-20). God and man have united in a NEW CREATION: the Logos made flesh was crucified and is raised for our justification. "God will be with us even in us forevermore." The throne and resting place of the Spirit, once in heaven, is now in the heart of His Son Christ Jesus and in His seed (Isaiah 53:10). This is the mystery of God's will purposed in Himself (Ephesians 1:5-9).

Hebrews 2:16, "God did not lay hold on the nature of angels to help them" as they do not need redemption, and dominion belongs to men (Genesis 1:28). So in order to undertake the work of human redemption it was necessary for Him to become "the promised Seed [singular] of Abraham" in whom "all nations of Adam's race will be blessed"  (Genesis 22:18) when they see God in Jesus Christ fulfil the part of Adam's KINSMAN Redeemer. For every believer baptized into Christ is Abraham's Seed and an heir according to the promise (Hebrews 2:9, 12; Psalm 22:22-31).

In Galatians 3:19 we learned that the Law was delivered to Israel in the hand of a mediator, the prophet Moses, and promulgated or enforced by prophets and judges: wise men and women. The Law was a contract involving two parties: God and Israel. As a contract the Law was conditional and if the conditions are not observed the whole contract is broken. Since Israel dishonoured their contract they forfeited the blessings annexed thereto and the curse of the penalty prevailed.

Galatians 3:20, "Now mediation involves at least two parties. A mediator is not a mediator of one party, but God stands alone as the sovereign Giver of the promise to Abraham face to face." God's promise to Abraham is pure unconditional grace. He gave the promise, and He will honour His promise despite the mistakes and failings of His elect. "For His gifts of grace and His calling are unconditional and irrevocable"  (Romans 11:29).

Romans 11:28-32, "By rejecting the Gospel and their indignation at its being preached to the Gentiles, the Israelites [having breached their contract through opposition to the divine will] are regarded as enemies of God, excluded from the kingdom and family of God for your benefit and blessing".

Romans 11:11, 15, "Did they stumble that they should fall? God forbid: but through their false step salvation is come to us Gentiles to provoke Israel to jealousy [as Moses prophesied in (Deuteronomy 32:21; Romans 10:19)—for emulation is a legitimate stimulus to what is good] . . . For if the temporary rejection of the Israel nation means the reconciliation of the [Gentile] world, what will the acceptance and rebirth of the nation of 144,000 elect Israelites be, but life from the dead?"

Continuing Romans 11:28, "But as touching the election of Abraham and his seed, they are beloved [even in their state of exclusion from the Kingdom and family of God] because of His promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob"; [hence God's provision of grace to righteous non-elect Israelite martyes under the Fifth Seal (Matthew 24:9-13; Revelation 6:9-11)]. "For His gifts of grace and His calling are unconditional and irrevocable".

"Just as you, while strangers to Christ, were once disobedient and rebellious towards God but now have obtained mercy through their disobedience and breach of contract; so these Israelites have now been disobedient that through the mercy shown to you they also may obtain mercy [as in Galatians 3:22]. [True grace seeks not to confine God's favour. Those who find mercy themselves should endeavour that through their mercy others also may obtain mercy]. For God's purpose was to shut up ALL men by their obstinate opposition to the divine will, causing them to miss the mark (II Corinthians 3:15-16) so that after the experience first of a humbled, condemned state without hope, all the elect of Adam's race may experience His mercy [undeserved favour] in Christ by grace through faith despite their proven guilt".

Galatians 3:21-24, "[Because it is inferior to the promise] is the Law contrary to the promises of God? Certainly not; for if a law had been given which could impart life, righteousness [justification and eternal bliss] would be by the Law." But Moses' Law was utterly incapable of giving salvation; because it was independent of the promise of grace and offered neither pardon of sin on repentance or invisible marriage union with the Spirit whereby we overcome the worldly nature of our ten senses. "Consequently the Scripture [where the Law is written] has shut up all unto a violation of the divine Law in thought or deed (Romans 11:32; Galatians 3:22), that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. But before faith came, Israelites were kept under the Law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed."

"Wherefore the Law was their schoolmaster until Christ came, that they might be justified by faith. But since faith has come, they are no longer under a schoolmaster, for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Israelite nor Gentile, there is neither slave nor freeman, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise".


Two thousand years ago Israel rejected the prophet of Malachi 3:1 and his Message for the traditions of the Babylonian Talmud. Thus spiritually blinded by their own choosing they brutally slaughtered Messiah and "to this day when the Old Testament is read, the same vail remains unlifted, because only through faith in Christ is it taken away. Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a vail lies over their hearts; but whenever one turns to the Lord, the vail is removed".

How late is the hour? Whereas God concluded the Law in Israel's apostasy, on about March 8, 1968 He fulfilled Revelation 4, 5 and 10:1-4, terminating the Laodicean Church Age in unbelief, Christ's Mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Word and redemption. This breach of faith can only be crossed by obedience to a clear revelation of "the Voice of the seventh angel" which will continue shouting his Message until the fullness of the Gentiles comes in. But the world church system rejected this Prophet of Malachi 4:6b for the traditions of men and are "crucifying unto themselves the Son of God afresh" (Hebrews 6:6).

The vail of spiritual blindness has been over the denominational Churches since Christ's unseen second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming in 1963 (Revelation 16:13-16). Soon the last Trump will sound and Los Angeles will sink beneath the sea marking the close of the Gentile dispensation and signalling the first resurrection. nl949.htm
