Gathering to Armageddon - Part VI

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.

Rothschild's Federal Reserve is being employed to manipulate the United States into the depression and monetary collapse foretold by Jesus Christ, "I will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth" .

Brother Branham explained, "This verse is not a declaration that the true church will go into and through the tribulation. If it meant that it would have said that. But it said, "I will keep thee from the hour of temptation." This temptation is exactly like the temptation in Eden. It will be a very inviting proposition held up in direct opposition to God's commanded Word, and yet from the standpoint of human reasoning it will be so very right, so enlightening and life-giving as to fool the world.

Only the very elect will not be fooled. The temptation will come as follows. The ecumenical move that has started on what seems such a beautiful and blessed principle (fulfilling Christ's prayer that we all might be one) becomes so strong politically that she bears pressure upon the government to cause all to join with her either directly or through adherence to principles enacted into law so that no people will be recognized as actual churches unless under direct or indirect domination of this council. Little groups will lose charters, privileges, etc., until they lose all property and spiritual rights with the people.

For example, right now unless the local ministerial association approves in many, if not most cities, one cannot rent a building for religious services. To become chaplains in the armed services, hospitals, etc., it is now almost mandatory to be recognized as acceptable to the trinitarian ecumenical groups. As this pressure increases, and it will, it will be harder to resist, for to resist is to lose privilege. And so many will be tempted to go along, for they will feel it is better to serve God publicly in the framework of this organization than not to serve God at all publicly. But they err. To believe the devil's lie is to serve Satan, even though you may want to call him Jehovah. But the elect will not be deceived.

Furthermore, the elect will not only be kept, but as this move becomes the "IMAGE ERECTED TO THE BEAST," the saints will be gone in the rapture. And this little delightful, winsome movement that started out in fellowship at Ephesus will become the monster of Satan that defiles and deceives the whole world. For the church system of the Roman Catholic and the Protestant in coming together will control the whole wealth of the world system and force the whole earth into its religious trap, or will kill them, by refusing them the privilege of buying and selling whereby they would make a living. This will be accomplished simply, for the harlot's daughters are all but gone back to her. In the meantime, Rome has acquired nearly all the supplies of gold. The Jews have the bonds and all the paper. At the right time, the harlot will destroy the present day money system by calling in all the paper, and demanding gold. With no gold, the system falls. The Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance, and the harlot church will take over the whole world" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 313:1 – 314:1).

"Now remember, it was Imperial Pagan Rome that fell by the sword. But she was healed of her death stroke when she joined to the nominal Christian church of Rome and incorporated paganism and Christianity, and thereby became the Holy Roman Empire which was to endure until Jesus came and destroyed her. But Rome is not going it alone. Her daughters are right with her and she will take over absolute authority by the World Council of Churches.

This may seem far fetched to some but actually it is very plain for all to see because right now the churches are controlling politics and at the opportune time will manifest exactly how great is that control. This ecumenical move will end up with Rome at the head even though the people did not envision it that way. This is so because in Revelation 17:3-6 it states that the whore, Mystery Babylon is seated on the beast. She is controlling the last, or fourth empire. This Roman Church is doing that. With the world church system under her Rome will be controlling, and this image (church system) will be obedient to Rome because Rome controls the gold of the world.

Thus all the people have to belong to the world church system or be at the mercy of the elements for they cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast in the hand or head. This mark in the head means that they will have to take the doctrine of the world church system which is trinitarianism, etc., and the mark in the hand which means to do the will of the world church. With this great power the church systems will persecute the true bride. This image will try to keep the bride from preaching and teaching, etc. Her ministers will be forbidden to give comfort and truth to the people who need it. But before the antichrist (in person) takes over this complete world system of churches the true church will be taken away from this world to be with the Lord. God will catch away His bride for the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb" (ibid. p. 376:1).

"See how that Judas spirit came back as a rider on a white horse. It was white. So close to the real, just as Judas was so close to Jesus. A crown was given to him (white horse rider). How? That spirit was now in the leader of the Nicolaitane system and he was a triple crowned pope who sat as God in his temple, calling himself the vicar of Christ. If vicar of Christ means 'instead of Christ' or 'in place of' or 'on behalf of God' then the pope was calling himself the Holy Ghost, or deposing the Holy Ghost, acting for Him. That was the Judas spirit in him doing that. See how he conquered—going forth conquering and to conquer. Christ did not do that. The only ones that came to Him were already predestinated by the Father. And so on and on went that spirit and one day it will become truly incarnate in a man who will head up the World Council of Churches, just as we have been saying. And by his gold (remember Judas held the bag) he will control the whole world, and that antichrist system will own everything and try to control everybody. But Jesus will come back and destroy them all with the brightness of His coming. And their end will be the lake of fire" (ibid. p. 378:1).

Fourth Reich of the Rich
September 22, 2008 – Under the appropriately named Section 8 of his unprecedented bailout swindle, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson included a clause which decrees that none of his actions can be overturned or modified by any court or administrative agency. That would eliminate any legal challenges or appeals, and effectively place Paulson and his bailout operation above the law, creating a virtual bankers' dictatorship.

The relevant section of his legislative proposal reads: "Sec. 8. Review. Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency". . . [And "Sec. 6, "The Secretary's authority to purchase mortgage-related assets under this Act shall be limited to $700,000,000,000 outstanding at any one time" hooks taxpayers for future bailouts].

The Intended Fraud is Multiple Fraud

Alan Greenspan has allegedly been under house arrest since June 2007. . . former Governor of the Bank of England, Eddie George has also been arrested.

The US and international financial markets are no more enamoured of this latest attempt by the US Treasury to pull a rabbit out of a hat full of holes than about any of the earlier 'rescue' operations, which all have one feature in common: their primary functions are to serve the interests of a very small clique of criminalist 'insiders' who have been engaged in ransacking the financial markets for private gain, and to finance the operations of the 'State within the State', namely the Intelligence Power, which, due to its power of penetration, controls all dimensions of Government, starting with the White House itself. . .

The . . . $85 billion bridging loan (offset by funding from the Reserve Bank of Australia) extended by the US authorities to AIG, gives the Government an 80% share in AIG, 'a move that will prevent external players from peering into AIG's myriad intelligence operations on behalf of the CIA'.

This entity was chaired, until his enforced resignation, by Maurice 'Hank' Greenberg, a close friend of Dr. Henry Kissinger. AIG's operations in Asia are reported by the same source as having pre-dated the CIA and its predecessor, the wartime Office of Strategic Services (OSS). AIG's brand new building in Hong Kong had been intended as a key outpost for CIA operatives assigned to China. But Chinese intelligence succeeded in thoroughly wiring the building with surveillance systems, so that AIG's China operations on behalf of the CIA were blown. With the US Government now in full control of AIG, the George Bush Center for Intelligence (Langley) and the Bush Family will, as this source noted on 18th September, 'breathe a lot easier.' Well, not actually. . . Full story:

Iran's Leader says 'American Empire' near Collapse
September 24, 2008 – Iran's president addressed the UN General Assembly Tuesday declaring that "the American empire" is nearing collapse and should end its military involvement in other countries. . . He accused the US of starting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to win votes in elections and blamed a "few bullying powers" for trying to undermine Iraq's nuclear program. . . Ahmadinejad accused "a small but deceitful number of people called Zionists . . . (of) dominating an important portion of the financial and monetary centers as well as the political decision-making centers of some European countries and the US."

In discussing Afghanistan, he suggested that the presence of US and NATO forces has contributed to a sharp rise in terrorism and a huge increase in the production of narcotics. . . Full story: Full text makes edifying reading.

America reduced to Third World Status
September 22, 2008 – Ever since the Federal Reserve Act was passed, Congress has voted over 195 times to give the Federal Reserve more power. In essence, Congress has voted away all their authority and power to protect us. If they don't vote for the emergency package, i.e. Resolution Trust and Blueprint, the market will crash. If they do vote for it, the American people are reduced to serfs and slaves in the New World Order which will be run by the real financial center of the world, the City of London. Either way they will be blamed. Basically they should be tried and hanged for treason along with every president and Congress before them down to 1913. . . Full story:

Comment: This interesting link includes 'the City of London' and the corporation known as 'UNITED STATES OF AMERICA' that rules the united States. While the plebs are distracted by 9/11, the theft of Afghanistan for Rockefeller & Co. to pipe oil and gas from the Caucasus and increase backing for the US dollar, US aggression against Russia via Georgia, the "climate control" hoax, the corporate takeover of Congress and the socialization of Bankster greed including US$1 billion corporate debt on unsecured derivatives so that the Federal reserve can foreclose of ALL US real estate, behind the scenes the Black Nobility, Rothschild and Rome are prosecuting the real plan for World Hegemony.


The Short - but Eventful - Life of Ike
September 15, 2008 – In its brief lifespan of only 13 days, Hurricane Ike wreaked a great deal of havoc. Affecting several countries including Cuba, Haiti, and the United States, Ike is blamed for approximately 114 deaths (74 in Haiti alone), and damages that are still being tallied, with estimates topping $10 billion. Many shoreline communities of Galveston, Texas were wiped from the map by the winds, storm surge and the walls of debris pushed along by Ike—though Galveston was spared the level of disaster it suffered in 1900.

Gun Lobbyist ordered to pay Lesbians
September 24, 2008 – Queensland gun lobbyist Ron Owen has been ordered to pay three lesbians a total of $12,500 after a landmark decision handed down by the Queensland Anti-Discrimination Tribunal. Mr Owen, from the southeast Queensland town of Gympie, also was ordered to publish a statement in local newspaper The Gympie Times within 45 days, stating the tribunal had found he contravened the Anti-Discrimination Act, News Ltd says.

The tribunal found he had displayed a bumper sticker on a vehicle, published a report to the Cooloola Shire Council where he was a former councilor, made a comment in a television interview and published a letter on a website—all of which incited hatred, serious contempt for or severe ridicule of homosexuals. . .

Israel Home to all Forms of 'Crime'
September 20, 2008 – "The Zionist (Israeli) regime and the philosophy of Zionism are the summation of all evil and selfishness in the world," Ahmadinejad said Saturday. In reference to Israeli crimes in the Gaza Strip, the president said the continuation of the existence of the Israeli regime only produces further aggression toward Palestinians. . .

Several UN Security Council resolutions condemning Israeli actions against Palestinians have been defied by Israel. The US, Israel's number one ally, has also exercised its veto powers to prevent the adoption of 42 anti-Israeli resolutions sought by the Council since 1972. . . The US use of veto powers has led to a continuation of rocket launches by Tel Aviv into the strip, causing the death of a large number of civilians. . .

President Ahmadinejad said in his Saturday speech that thanks to the assistance of the White House, the world can witness all forms of 'crimes and criminals' in Israel. Full story:


The First Council of Nicaea and the "Missing Records"
The first ecclesiastical gathering in history was summoned and is today known as the Council of Nicaea. It was a bizarre event that provided many details of early clerical thinking and presents a clear picture of the intellectual climate prevailing at the time. It was at this gathering that Christianity was born, and the ramifications of decisions made at the time are difficult to calculate. About four years prior to chairing the Council, Constantine had been initiated into the religious order of Sol Invictus, one of the two thriving cults that regarded the Sun as the one and only Supreme God (the other was Mithraism). Because of his Sun worship, he instructed Eusebius to convene the first of three sittings on the summer solstice, 21 June 325 (Catholic Encyclopedia, New Edition, vol. i, p. 792), and it was "held in a hall in Osius's palace" (Ecclesiastical History, Bishop Louis Dupin, Paris, 1686, vol. i, p. 598). In an account of the proceedings of the conclave of presbyters gathered at Nicaea, Sabinius, Bishop of Hereclea, who was in attendance, said, "Excepting Constantine himself and Eusebius Pamphilius, they were a set of illiterate, simple creatures who understood nothing" (Secrets of the Christian Fathers, Bishop J. W. Sergerus, 1685, 1897 reprint).

This is another luminous confession of the ignorance and uncritical credulity of early churchmen. Dr Richard Watson (1737-1816), a disillusioned Christian historian and one-time Bishop of Llandaff in Wales (1782), referred to them as "a set of gibbering idiots" (An Apology for Christianity, 1776, 1796 reprint; also, Theological Tracts, Dr Richard Watson, "On Councils" entry, vol. 2, London, 1786, revised reprint 1791). From his extensive research into Church councils, Dr Watson concluded that "the clergy at the Council of Nicaea were all under the power of the devil, and the convention was composed of the lowest rabble and patronised the vilest abominations" (An Apology for Christianity, op. cit.). It was that infantile body of men who were responsible for the commencement of a new religion and the theological creation of Jesus Christ.

The Church admits that vital elements of the proceedings at Nicaea are "strangely absent from the canons" (Catholic Encyclopedia, Farley ed., vol. iii, p. 160). We shall see shortly what happened to them. However, according to records that endured, Eusebius "occupied the first seat on the right of the emperor and delivered the inaugural address on the emperor's behalf" (Catholic Encyclopedia, Farley ed., vol. v, pp. 619-620). There were no British presbyters at the council but many Greek delegates. "Seventy Eastern bishops" represented Asiatic factions, and small numbers came from other areas (Ecclesiastical History, ibid.). Caecilian of Carthage travelled from Africa, Paphnutius of Thebes from Egypt, Nicasius of Die (Dijon) from Gaul, and Donnus of Stridon made the journey from Pannonia.

It was at that puerile assembly, and with so many cults represented, that a total of 318 "bishops, priests, deacons, subdeacons, acolytes and exorcists" gathered to debate and decide upon a unified belief system that encompassed only one god (An Apology for Christianity, op. cit.). By this time, a huge assortment of "wild texts" (Catholic Encyclopedia, New Edition, "Gospel and Gospels") circulated amongst presbyters and they supported a great variety of Eastern and Western gods and goddesses: Jove, Jupiter, Salenus, Baal, Thor, Gade, Apollo, Juno, Aries, Taurus, Minerva, Rhets, Mithra, Theo, Fragapatti, Atys, Durga, Indra, Neptune, Vulcan, Kriste, Agni, Croesus, Pelides, Huit, Hermes, Thulis, Thammus, Eguptus, Iao, Aph, Saturn, Gitchens, Minos, Maximo, Hecla and Phernes (God's Book of Eskra, anon., ch. xlviii, paragraph 36).

Up until the First Council of Nicaea, the Roman aristocracy primarily worshipped two Greek gods—Apollo and Zeus—but the great bulk of common people idolised either Julius Caesar or Mithras (the Romanised version of the Persian deity Mithra). Caesar was deified by the Roman Senate after his death (15 March 44 BC) and subsequently venerated as "the Divine Julius". The word "Saviour" was affixed to his name, its literal meaning being "one who sows the seed", i.e., he was a phallic god. Julius Caesar was hailed as "God made manifest and universal Saviour of human life", and his successor Augustus was called the "ancestral God and Saviour of the whole human race" (Man and his Gods, Homer Smith, Little, Brown & Co., Boston, 1952). Emperor Nero (54-68), whose original name was Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus (37-68), was immortalised on his coins as the "Saviour of mankind" (ibid.). The Divine Julius as Roman Saviour and "Father of the Empire" was considered "God" among the Roman rabble for more than 300 years. He was the deity in some Western presbyters' texts, but was not recognised in Eastern or Oriental writings.

Constantine's intention at Nicaea was to create an entirely new god for his empire who would unite all religious factions under one deity. Presbyters were asked to debate and decide who their new god would be. Delegates argued among themselves, expressing personal motives for inclusion of particular writings that promoted the finer traits of their own special deity. Throughout the meeting, howling factions were immersed in heated debates, and the names of 53 gods were tabled for discussion. "As yet, no God had been selected by the council, and so they balloted in order to determine that matter. . . For one year and five months the balloting lasted. . ." (God's Book of Eskra, Prof. S. L. MacGuire's translation, Salisbury, 1922, chapter xlviii, paragraphs 36, 41).

At the end of that time, Constantine returned to the gathering to discover that the presbyters had not agreed on a new deity but had balloted down to a shortlist of five prospects: Caesar, Krishna, Mithra, Horus and Zeus (Historia Ecclesiastica, Eusebius, c. 325). Constantine was the ruling spirit at Nicaea and he ultimately decided upon a new god for them. To involve British factions, he ruled that the name of the great Druid god, Hesus, be joined with the Eastern Saviour-god, Krishna (Krishna is Sanskrit for Christ), and thus Hesus Krishna would be the official name of the new Roman god. A vote was taken and it was with a majority show of hands (161 votes to 157) that both divinities became one God. Following longstanding heathen custom, Constantine used the official gathering and the Roman apotheosis decree to legally deify two deities as one, and did so by democratic consent. A new god was proclaimed and "officially" ratified by Constantine (Acta Concilii Nicaeni, 1618). That purely political act of deification effectively and legally placed Hesus and Krishna among the Roman gods as one individual composite. That abstraction lent Earthly existence to amalgamated doctrines for the Empire's new religion; and because there was no letter "J" in alphabets until around the ninth century, the name subsequently evolved into "Jesus Christ".

Comment: The First Nicea Council was most definitely a "puerile assembly, and with so many cults represented." The few Christian Churchmen who traveled to Nicea departed before this Hegelian dialectic sat and the pagans organized the Roman Catholic church, the antithesis of Christianity.


We're Paying the Price Today for Decades of Relentless Dam Building
September 18, 2008 – If the current growing population of 6.7 billion is considered a benefit to mankind, then dams are beneficial. If the vulnerability of dense populations downstream of dams is a benefit to mankind, then dams are beneficial. If agricultural production on arid lands that require large volumes of water that salinate the soil and demand large inputs of fossil-fuel based fertilizers and pesticides that runoff and pollute groundwater is considered a benefit to mankind, then dams are beneficial. If the displacement of 80 million people from their homelands to accommodate dams is a benefit to mankind, then dams are beneficial. If the destruction of life-supporting ecosystems and fishery resources is a benefit to mankind, then dams are beneficial. If the inequitable sharing of benefits and costs is a benefit to mankind, then dams are beneficial. If debt burden, cost overruns, deferred maintenance costs and the impoverishment of people is a benefit to mankind, then dams are the most beneficial engineering endeavor of human history second only to nuclear weapons. If that's the guess then God help us, because common sense hasn't. Full story:


Gathering to Armageddon - Part VI

We'll take our text from Numbers 35 and Ezekiel 37.

Numbers 35:33-34, "You shall not pollute the land in which you live: for blood defiles the land: and no expiation can be made to the land for the blood that is in it, except by the blood of him that shed it. (An eye for an eye and a life for a life). You are not to defile the land in which you live, because I too am living in it: for I the Lord dwell among the people of Israel".

Ezekiel 37:21-28, "Say to the twelve tribes, Thus says the Lord God; Behold, I am taking the people of Israel from among the heathen whither they are gone and will gather them every quarter and bring them into their own land: and I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and One King shall be King to them all. They shall no longer be two nations and no longer divided into two kingdoms. Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, their detestable practices, and all their other transgressions: for I will save them from all their apostasies and will cleanse them: and they shall be My people, and I will be their God."

"My servant David shall be King over them; and they shall have One Shepherd. They shall follow My ordinances, and be careful to obey My statutes. They shall dwell in the land which I gave Jacob My servant, the land in which their fathers lived; they and their children and their children's children shall dwell there for ever: and David My servant shall be their Prince for ever. I will make a covenant of peace; it shall be for them an everlasting covenant. I will bless them and multiply them, and I will set My sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them: I will be their God, and they shall be My people. When My sanctuary remains in the midst of them the nations will know that I, the Lord, sanctify Israel".

That takes the people of Israel from their restoration to the land in unbelief to their conversion and the Millennium. However, the 144,000 must first go through the Tribulation. This-evening we'll study Ezekiel 38 and 39 which leap ahead to the time of Daniel's Seventieth Week—after the ending of the Gentile dispensation.

Israel, restored to the Land, is threatened by an invasion from the north. Some of the historical nations take part in the attack, but the invaders are remote barbarians, from outside the ancient civilized world.

This attack comes between Ezekiel's prophecy of the restoration of Israel, described in chapters 33-37, and his picture of ultimate harmony between the Temple of the Lord which is His Elect, and the land, with which the Book closes when the Lord returns in chapters 40-48 to dwell in the hearts of His servant nation and thus restore the Kingdom to Israel.

In chapters 38 and 39 we shall see how God will "bring forth Gog"; and without human help defeat his vast armies and crumble every possible refuge with divinely induced panic as fell upon the army of the Midianites when Gideon's soldiers smashed their pitchers and shouted the cry to battle (Ezekiel38:19-23; Judges 6-7). This is the time of the Sixth Seal when men shall plead with the mountains, "Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sits upon the Throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb." The details are omitted from the description of the victory for it permits no spectators (Genesis 19:24-26; Isaiah 17:12-14). And the plunder from Gog's defeat is not treated as riches for Israelite soldiers, but as belonging to the real Victor, their Lord Jesus Christ. It is therefore cherim and destined for fire (Ezekiel 39:9-10; Isaiah 9:4-5; Psalm 46:9-11), and as a feast for God's non-human creation (Ezekiel 39:18-20; Isaiah 34:1-8). Israel's only participation is burying the dead and destroying the weapons. We pray the Lord's blessing for a clear understanding and grace to see the sequence in which these events unfold as the seven years and the seven months may not be literal but emblematical of the Supernatural nature of the deliverance and the Israelites' zeal for holiness (Daniel 2:44-45; Zechariah 4:6-7).

Ezekiel 38:1-7,"The Word of the Lord came to me: Son of man, look northward, toward the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech (or Moscow), and Tubal (Tobolsk or Siberia). Magog represents the Scythians from whom after intermarriage with the Medes, came the Russians. According to the Table of Nations in Genesis 10, these are descendants of the sons of Japheth. "Gog" is their "chief" or principal man, the Czar or President of a union of several lesser princes.

"Prophesy against him. Say, Thus saith the Lord God; I am against you, Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. I will put hooks into your jaws, and draw you from your own land, and I will mobilize your troops and armored cavalry, and make you a mighty host, all fully armed: Persia (Iran), Ethiopia, and Libya (these last two, according to Genesis 10, descended from Ham): shall join you with all of their weapons: Gomer, and all its troops; the armies of Togarmah from the distant north with all its troops, as well as many others. (Gomer and Togarmah are the peoples of the eastern boundary of the old Roman empire in the area around Mount Ararat where the borders of Turkey, Iran, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Russia meet with Syria and Iraq). Be prepared, stay mobilized, you and all your companies that are assembled around you, you are their commander".

Ezekiel 38:8-12, "Many years hence you will be called up for service: at the end of years you will swoop down into Israel, that will be lying in peace after the nation has been restored to statehood from war and occupied by people now living in security, all of them brought together from the nations in the mountains of Israel, which had been a perpetual waste."

(Ezekiel says Israel is "restored" from the sword at this time, and her citizens "gathered" out of the nations. Yet Jesus stated emphatically, "Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times [not dispensations] of the Gentiles are fulfilled" (Luke 21:24). Why? Because Israel will be ruled by a non-Semitic people with no part in God's Covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob unto the consummation (Daniel 9:27).

Jesus described this time following the end of the Gentile dispensation as a period of extreme and universal terror (Luke 21:25-26). The United States is reeling from the earthquake that has sunk Los Angeles. Her Western allies are preoccupied supplying emergency relief to their former dominions. The Middle East has erupted as "es Sakhra," the Dome of the Rock, was destroyed by an earthquake that split the mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:4). Taking this window of opportunity, Russia has invaded the United States whose exhausted military deployed overseas in fruitless wars of aggression, struggles for its own survival. And Enraged by senseless US belligerence in service to the International Banksters whose plot to destroy the US dollar has dissolved trillions of dollars of national reserves in now worthless US Treasuries, Russia and her allies march unhindered through US-occupied Iraq and Afghanistan, through Pakistan, Iran and Turkey, gaining thousands of fanatical followers along the way, and invade Israel, insensible to the fact this prophetic catastrophe masks the restoration of God's favor to Israel, as a consequence of which their fight is against God. They will perish for lack of knowledge. The knowledge to discern that the Banksters and not Israelites, and barely any Jew is an Israelite (Hosea 4:6; II Thessalonians 2:10-12; II Timothy 3:7-8).

"You Russians shall go up and roll down upon them like a storm, and cover the land like a cloud. Thus saith the Lord God; at that time an evil thought will come to your mind. You will say, I will march against the land of unwalled villages, and fall upon these people living in such confidence, without walls, or bars or gates. And I will seize booty and carry it away as plunder, assailing the waste places now inhabited and the people who were gathered from the Goiim or nations, who have gotten cattle and goods, and who dwell at the center of the Earth."

Sheba, and Dedan, (descendants of Ham who established Yemen in Southern Arabia), and the merchants of Tarshish, shall ask, Have you come to capture spoil? have you gathered your company to carry away silver and gold, to drive away their cattle and seize their goods, and impoverish them?"

God is sovereign. He examines the motives and objectives of every heart. In addition to contemplating aggression against those who are defenseless and complacent, dwelling securely without walls, bars, or gates, Russia covets Israel's Dead Sea mineral wealth and strategic position "at the center of the earth".

Since the State of Israel has been restored, the deserts have been made to produce abundantly, the Dead Sea holds important chemical salts, the estimated total value of which is four times the wealth of the United States. Brother Branham said, "Russia will come down, say, We just got to have that stuff. That's uranium and everything down there, we got to go get it. And as they go down, then will be the battle of Armageddon. That will be when God will stand like He did in the valley for the children of Israel and fight again. But that will take place until the Gentile dispensation will be finished. And when that time is finished, she's cut off" (C.O.D., 77:111; 294:530; Daniel, 122:157).

But Armageddon will be several years after this invasion.

Armageddon is the valley of Berachah (Blessing), where Jehoshaphat defeated the Gentiles. Joel 3:2 prophesied, "I will gather the armies of all nations into the valley of Jehoshaphat (which means 'Jehovah has judged'), and punish them there for harming My people, for scattering My inheritance among the nations, and dividing up My land." That will be Armageddon.

Moab, Ammon and the Edomites, whom God would not let Israel invade on their journey to the Promised Land, came to invade Israel in the days of Jehoshaphat. God anointed a Levite, who prophesied that "the battle is the Lord's" so when Israel goes to do battle, they should once again find their enemies have fought themselves to death (II Chronicles 20).

What a perfect type of God's prophecy for the end-time. Zechariah 14:13, "It shall come to pass in that day, that Russia will be seized with great panic from the Lord; and they will fight against each other in hand-to-hand combat." The same thing. Back there it was Moab, Ammon and the Edomites that attacked the Land of the Covenant, here it will be Russia and Islam who will attack.

Ezekiel 38:14-16, "Therefore, son of man, prophesy. Say to Russia, Thus saith the Lord God: On that day when My people Israel are dwelling in security, you will bestir yourself and come from all over the remote north with your vast host of cavalry and cover the land like a cloud. It shall be in the latter days that I bring you against My land, in order that the nations may know Me, when I shall be sanctified in your defeat, O Russia, before their eyes."

Thus says the Lord God; "Are you he of whom I have spoken in old time by My servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days for many years that I would bring you against them" (Deuteronomy 32:43; Isaiah 5:26-29; 34:1-6; 63:1-6; 66:15-16; Joel 3:9-14)?

God calls Israel "My people," and the land "My Land," signifying that the Gentile dispensation is over, and He is dealing only with Israel. So an offense against Israel is an affront to God.

Though Gog stirs himself, comes from his place, and goes up like a cloud against Israel, three verbs implying his own self-propulsion—the real controlling power behind his attack is solely God: "It is I Who will bring you." And by bringing Russia to the Land for judgment, He will prove to the nations His Own holiness.

Ezekiel 38:18-20, "And it shall come to pass when Russia comes against the land of Israel, declares the Lord God, that My fury shall explode. For in My jealousy and blazing wrath I declare in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel; and the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the beasts of the field, all the creeping things that creep upon the earth, and ALL men upon the face of the earth, will shake at My Presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, cliffs shall tumble, and every wall shall fall to the ground".

Haggai 2:21-23, "Speak to Zerubbabel, (the representative of the Davidic monarchy and covenant, and in direct line of ancestry of Jesus Christ), governor of Judah, saying, I'll shake the heavens and the earth; And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother. (Russia and her allies will slaughter one another).

In that day, says the Lord of hosts, will I take you O Zerubbabel, My servant, the son of Shealtiel, says the Lord, and will make you (through Messiah, your descendant) My signet (that is the Seal of Redemption): for I have chosen you (with whom to renew My covenant to David's line), says the Lord of hosts'.

The earthquake follows and marks the Presence of God (Isaiah 2:19-21; Jeremiah 4:23-26; Joel 2:2, 21; Zechariah 14:3-4; Revelation 11:19). It sinks Los Angeles, and cleaves the mount of Olives, destroying the Mosque of Omar on Temple mount. Russia for mercenary reasons, and the Moslems through religious fanaticism, grasp their opportunity and invade Israel, but God stands for His land and His people.

I Kings 19:11-12, "And God said to Elijah, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: and after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice."

This is precisely what occurred at Sunset Mountain in 1964 where a strong wind rent rocks from the mountain side, and inside each rock was a representation of the Capstone mystery Brother Branham had delivered in the revelation of the Seven Seals. The Lord told Him, "Judgment is striking the West Coast," and three days later on March 27, 1964 a magnitude 9.2 earthquake struck Alaska. It was the second-largest earthquake recorded in modern times and the largest in the written history of North America. It released 100 times as much energy as the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and was followed by tsunamis. More than 100,000 square miles of Alaska broke, twisted, tilted, dropped and rose. Water sloshed in lakes and harbours as distant as Louisiana, water levels jumped in wells as far away as South Africa, and seismic waves traveled through the planet for weeks and Earth rang like a bell.

For all of this, Christ was not in the strong wind, nor was He in the earthquake. He was the still small Voice unfolding His secrets in the heart of His Bride to bring Her to maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. And God will not be in the earthquake or the four winds that strike the mountains of Israel, but in the still small Voice of His two witnesses.

Ezekiel 38:21-23, "I will call for a sword against Russia throughout all My mountains, says the Lord God: every man's sword shall be against his brother (Haggai 2:21-23; Zechariah 14:4, 10). With disease and with bloodshed I will enter into judgment with him, and I will rain upon him, upon his hordes and the many people that are with him, torrential rain, accompanied by hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus I will manifest My greatness and My holiness and make Myself known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord".

Like my sermons, much of the Scripture is recorded in shorthand as it were: a few words can say a great deal. Unlike my sermons, the Scripture is inerrant. I don't wish to seem uncertain or like I'm preaching guesswork, I rely upon the Message of Brother Branham to place and unfold these Scriptures. Although his Message finished the mystery of God, I've got to find the quotes that identify what they are saying. Ezekiel 38 and 39 appear to cover Daniel's Seventieth Week, from the end of the Gentile dispensation and the earthquake to the consummation.

I find it interesting that unlike Daniel these chapters don't deal with Rome and the beast. They deal with Russia and the Islamic people. Rome does not become involved until after this battle when they form an alliance with the USA and the International Jews, and the Pope restores peace. Verses 21-23 would appear to be a summary of the judgment of God upon Russia and its Muslim allies in the early part of the Seventieth Week. The climax: rain of fire and hail of brimstone, is reminiscent of the judgment on Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:24-28). The chapter concludes with a triple assertion of God's purpose: "I will magnify Myself, and sanctify Myself; and I will be known in the sight of the many nations who witness Gog's fate, so they will recognize that I Am God." In thus exercising His wrath against the world powers, God proves His true identity and implies that His people shall be saved as in the Exodus; and as Joshua took seven years to conquer the land, so now Israel will be seven years destroying discarded weaponry after God defeats their invaders.

Ezekiel 39:1-16, "Son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord God; I am against you, O Russia, the Leader of Meshech (Moscow) and Tubal (Tobolsk): and I will turn you around and drive you from the remotest parts of the north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel. (In our KJV we also read, "and leave but the sixth part of thee" which is a misinterpretation that should read: "drive" or "forcibly march"). And I will smite your bow out of your left hand, and cause your arrows to fall out of your right hand.

"You and all your vast armies will die upon the mountains of Israel and I will give you as food to the birds of prey, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. You shall not reach the city, but fall upon the open fields: for I have spoken it, says the Lord God. And I will rain down fire on Russia, and on all your allies who live safely on the coasts: and they shall know that I am the Lord. Thus will I make My holy Name known among My people Israel; and I will not let them profane It any more: and the nations shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel."

"That day of judgment will come, and everything will happen just as I have declared. And they that inhabit the cities shall go forth, and gather the weapons, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: They shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for these weapons will furnish all the fuel they require: and they shall use the possessions of those who despoiled them, and rob those who plundered them, says the Lord God."

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give to Russia a vast graveyard in Israel in the valley of the travelers, east of the Dead Sea: and it will block the path of the travelers: there Gog and all his multitude will be buried: and they shall call it "The valley of Hamongog" (or Gog's Army).

It will take seven months for the house of Israel to bury them, in order to cleanse the Land.

"Everyone in Israel will help bury them; for it will be a glorious victory for Israel on the day I glorify Myself, says the Lord God. And at the end of seven months they shall employ men to systematically search throughout the land for any skeletons and to bury them, to cleanse it: And the travelers who see a man's bone shall set up a sign by it, so they can be located and transported for burial in the valley of Hamongog. The name of the city there shall be Hamonah (Multitude or Army). Thus shall they cleanse the land".

Ezekiel 39:1-16 restates the previous chapter with variations in detail. The first five verses announce Gog's defeat. In verses 6-8 we are told that Gog's defeat is extended to his homeland and that of his allies. The Fire of God's wrath will rain upon Magog and his allies "living securely" in distant lands. An ironic note, since Israel's own defenseless "living in security" had prompted Gog to launch his attack.

Gog's defeat and the destruction of his homeland, will be followed by the burning of his weapons. A number of other Biblical passages use the motif of weapons to emphasize God's superiority over the nations, or the foolishness of trusting in, or fearing weapons.

Of Israel's restoration to the Land, Christ's parousia to Israel, and the Millennium, Isaiah 9:4-7 says, "God has broken the yoke of Israel's burden, and the staff on their shoulder, the rod of their oppressor, as when He destroyed the vast host of the Midianites on the plain of Esdraelon (which is Armageddon) by Gideon's little band. For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall all be for burning as fuel for the fire."

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His Name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. There shall be no end to the increase of His government and of peace, upon the throne of David, and upon His kingdom, to establish and to uphold it, with judgment and with justice from henceforth forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this" (as Revelation 19 confirms).

The people themselves destroy the weapons; in fact, this task and the burial are their only real participation in the whole contest. As the account makes clear from beginning to end, Gog's invasion and his defeat are totally under God's control. So much weaponry will be abandoned it will provide sufficient fuel to supply Israel's domestic needs seven full years. If this is a literal period to be fulfilled, it must be placed at the start of the seventieth week as we have been teaching tonight.

The promise they will despoil those who would despoil them, and take booty from those who would rob them, turns the tables on Gog. Further irony is seen in that God gives Gog a burial place in the land, rather than the land itself. The burying of the remains of the dead keeps the land pure from ritual pollution, and since it proceeds for seven months, emphasizes the enormity of Gog's defeat and God's glory.

Ezekiel 39:17-21, "Son of man, thus saith the Lord; Call all the birds and animals and say to them, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves from far and near to My sacrifice which I am going to sacrifice for you upon the mountains of Israel, that you may eat flesh, and drink blood. You shall eat the flesh of warriors, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, as though they were rams, lambs, goats, and bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.

You shall eat fat until you are glutted, and drink blood until you are drunk, from My sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. Thus you shall be filled at My table with horses and charioteers, with mighty men, and with all the men of war, says the Lord God. And I will set My glory among the nations, and all the nations shall see My judgment that I have executed, and My hand that I have laid upon them."

The animal guests at the feast eat the fat and the blood normally reserved in a sacrifice for Jehovah, for these sacrifices are "unclean." The victory over Gog will be an occasion for the nations to see Jehovah's glory and to realize His justice. However, like pharaoh, their day of grace has expired and their hearts have been seared by the hot iron of unbelief.

The Son of man, Jesus Christ, has come down in His 'parousia' and made His Word so real it has united the Bride as one with Him and she has been taken Home. We go to the wedding supper, not to the marriage. Because "the marriage of the Lamb has come to pass. . . And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, Come! Gather yourselves together for the supper of the great God, that you may eat the flesh of kings, and captains, and valiant men, of horses and riders, and the of all humanity both small and great, bond and free" (Revelation 19:7-9, 17-18; Ezekiel 39:17-20; William Branham, Proving His Word, p. 44:236).

Ezekiel 39:22-23, "From that day onwards the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God. And the nations shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they dealt so treacherously against Me, I hid My face from them, and gave them into the hand of their adversaries; and they all fell by the sword."

This is no indication of repentance. Revelation 22:11, "He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still." The time for repentance among the Gentiles has passed. Those who are the saved must lay down their lives for their principles, or take the mark of the beast and have their names removed from the Book of Life.

Brother Branham said, "For three and one-half years while the retributive wrath of God is poured out, His Bride will be in the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Then will He return, leaving His Bride in "His Father's house," while He makes Himself known to His brethren. At this very time, the antichrist covenant that the Jews have made with Rome will be broken. Rome and her allies then send their troops to destroy all the God-fearing, Word-abiding Jews. But as they come against the city to destroy it, there will appear in the heavens the sign of the Coming of the Son of Man with His mighty armies to destroy them who have been destroying the earth. With the enemy repulsed, Jesus then comes and presents Himself to the 144,000. Having seen His mighty acts of salvation, they have come to know His power. But also seeing His wounds and knowing that they had rejected Him even to that moment causes them to cry out in the agony of terror and fear, even as did their brethren of old when they stood before Joseph, being sore afraid that they would be killed. But as Joseph said, "Don't be angry with yourselves. It is all right. God was in it all. He did it to preserve life." Even so will Jesus speak peace and love to them" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 40:2).

Through Gog's overwhelming defeat, the 144,000 elect of Israel will recognize their God from that time onward. The cleansing of the Land symbolizes a return to the Orthodox Law and ordinances of Moses. Malachi 4:4 says, "Remember ye the Law of Moses My servant, which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments." Before the prophet with the Elijah anointing can introduce the elect to the New Covenant of Ezekiel 36, their Moses must take them back to their foundation in the Old Covenant whence they have fallen.

Ezekiel 36:21-29, "But I had pity for My holy Name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, whither they went. Therefore say unto the house of Israel, "Thus saith the Lord; I do this not for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for My holy Name's sake, which you have profaned among the heathen, whither you went. And I will sanctify My great Name, which you have profaned in the midst of the heathen; and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, says the Lord God, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes."

"For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and give you a heart of flesh."

"And I will put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you shall keep My judgments, and do them. And you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and you shall be My people, and I will be your God. I will also save you from all your uncleannesses. . ."

From the time of God's great sacrifice of Gog's army, the nations will learn it was because of iniquity and rebellion that Israel went into exile, and not God's weakness or His inability to defend them. But the nations will only harden their hearts.

Ezekiel 39:24-29, "I dealt with them according to their uncleanness and their transgressions, and hid My face from them. Therefore thus saith the Lord God; now I will end the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy on the whole house of Israel, and I will be jealous for My holy Name. Their time of treachery and shame shall all be in the past, when they live safely in their land, with no one to make them afraid."

"Once they are settled and undisturbed in their land, when I have brought them back from the peoples, and gathered them from their enemies' lands, and through them have vindicated My holiness in the sight of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord their God because I caused them to go into exile among the nations, and then gathered them into their own land. I will not leave a single one [of the 144,000 elect] among the nations. Neither hide My face from them any longer: for I have poured out My Spirit upon the house of Israel, says the Lord God".

Restoration will lead to serious reflection among elect Israelites on the reasons that led to their historic departure from the land. Ezekiel uses the account of God's defeat of Gog's invasion in chapters 38 and 39 to underscore once more the finality and irreversibility of the divine promise for the future of Israel . . . and the world gathers to Armageddon. bb960724.htm

Gathering to Armageddon - Part V

Bible Believers' Newsletter #545
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
ISSN 1442-8660

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.

The treachery of 'the City of London' exercised against Russia by her International Banksters, their 'Oligarchs' and kindred in the US Administration determined on re-conquest, is placing "hooks in the jaws of Gog" which will shortly invade Israel and mainland United States. We are witnessing a fulfilment of Scripture in real time. Russian destroyers will soon take up positions around Cuba in the Caribbean and others will conduct military exercises with Venezuela.

Following the August 7 confrontation between Georgia and Russia and the September 10 deployment of Russian strategic bombers in Venezuela, there is little doubt Russia is reasserting itself for a period of heightened geopolitical tension with the United States which has an active propaganda campaign of disinformation as their alien-controlled media presents a false picture to Western world.

While we are marching to Zion, and that beautiful city of God, the world is gathering to Armageddon.

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

Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott


Calling US Bonds Home!!!
September 11, 2008 – In the past two months, a remarkable sequence of events has taken place regarding US$-based bonds. They have been called home, a demand to be brought back to US shores. While Wall Street and the key financial USGovt ministries celebrate the rise in the USDollar that results immediately, few seem to realize that something much more important is happening. Imagine a company recalling to the corporate laboratory all defective devices in order to prevent them from exploding in customer's faces. The lab sends the collection of destructive items to a remote abandoned field so they can explode safely. That is the analogy, except that the US financial arena cannot explode the USTreasury Bonds and USAgency mortgage bonds safely. As they crater, implode, or default, the system is killed.

In all likelihood the Bank for International Settlements in Basel Switzerland ordered the United States to call in USTreasurys and USAgencys, the bond instruments, the financial weapons of mass destruction. The BIS ordered the financial leadership to call their damaged risky debt securities home, so that they can explode on US soil, so that their greatest concentration rests on US soil, so that the maximum loss occurs to US institutions, so that the risk can be kept to a practical minimum for foreign nations. The benefits given to Americans are two-fold, one a bizarre paradox, the other an open door to steal... Full story:


US is "more Communist than China"
September 8, 2008 – The nationalization of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac shows that the US is "more communist than China right now, but its brand of socialism is meant only for the rich . . . it's just bailing out financial institutions," investor Jim Rogers, CEO of Rogers Holdings, told CNBC Europe on Monday.

"This is madness, this is insanity, they have more than doubled the American national debt in one weekend for a bunch of crooks and incompetents. I'm not quite sure why I or anybody else should be paying for this. . ." Full story:

Comment: The fascist takeover of the USA by the globalists has enabled them to privatize its profits and socialize their failures on the broad shoulders and broken backs of taxpayers without Swiss bank accounts, discretionary trusts and tax-free foundations. Of necessity the International Banksters must break the material independence of the United States to bring her under submission to one world government.


Consensus? What Consensus?
September 10, 2008 – We have all heard the litany in the news that 2,500 scientists working in conjunction with the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) agree with a 90 percent certainty that man is causing potentially catastrophic global warming. They even received the Nobel Peace Prize, along with Al Gore, for their exemplary work in the field. This, we are told, is a solid consensus having very few dissenters. The problem is that this so-called consensus is a myth—it never existed. Ever! . .

Putting this into perspective, for every 1 scientist who even slightly favored the IPCC conclusions, 792 signed the petition saying there was no convincing evidence that there is man-made catastrophic global warming. For every Ph.D. that endorsed the IPCC report, 1800 signed the petition. If anything, there is a scientific consensus that man is not responsible for global warming. What did the media do with this potentially explosive story? They ignored it, as usual. A few, like Fox News, were gracious enough to have a byline on their website. Only the conservative media highlighted this phenomenal story. Full story:

Comment: This proves the governments of the Western world are marching under the same 'hidden hand' as US President Woodrow Wilson who said, "Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so persuasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it" (Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom p. 13-14).


Relax, Truth has Surfaced
September 10, 2008 – Kevin Rudd's global warming guru has finally—and reluctantly—exposed the con. Ignore everything the Government has told you. The truth, conceded Professor Ross Garnaut last week, is that it really is cheaper for Australians to do nothing about global warming. And, no, it's not immoral to figure there's no point spending big money to "stop" this warming when it won't make a blind bit of difference.

No wonder the Rudd Government refuses to comment on Garnaut's latest report, released on Friday. Much of the argument for its grand plan to make us slash emissions from 2010 has just been destroyed. I guess it's just hoping no journalists, most of whom are warming believers, will care to notice what Garnaut has just admitted through gritted teeth. As far as I can tell, only the Daily Telegraph's Piers Akerman has drawn the unmistakable conclusions:

"NO SINGLE issue better illustrates the Rudd Government's gross incompetence than its blindly ideological approach to the question of climate change. Fortunately, and perhaps accidentally, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's own hand-picked climate change guru, Professor Ross Garnaut, has now driven a truck through its principal argument. . ." Full story:

Comment: One sinister "BIG LIE" of the NWO thugs exposed by Trilateralist Garnaut who has been stumped by the truthful logic of maths and his own folly to the chagrin of the glib-tongued globalist Prime Minister Rudd. In the US, Barak Obama's proposals for global taxes to pay for globalization and world government come with the recommendations of Trilateralist Zbigniew Brzezinski. Obama has proposed a global poverty tax in a US Senate Climate Change Control Bill that calls for an international body to monitor and regulate CO2 and "carbon footprints" from discovery, to production, to consumption at a cost of $50 trillion globally, or $8 trillion for US taxpayers, to be paid for by a global tax. This is one collectivist "surprise" Mr. Rudd has not shared on the floor of open parliament.


Ivashov, Chiesa, Meyssan, Russian Experts debate 9/11 on Russian TV
Washington, September 9, 2008 – Thierry Meyssan reports from Moscow that he and other leading international 9/11 truth experts have completed taping a television debate which will be telecast on the first national program of Russian state television this coming Friday, September 12. . . one of the most compelling speakers was a Russian cosmonaut who observed the 9/11 events from his post on the International Space Station in earth orbit. This cosmonaut recounts in the telecast that, as he watched the immense plume of smoke spread from New York out over the Atlantic, he took a large number of photos and films which were sent automatically to both Houston and Moscow. "We have been studying these images very, very, carefully," commented the cosmonaut pointedly, "and we have seen some highly interesting things." Full story:


9/11 Questions
Washington, September 13, 2008 – Two days ago was the seventh anniversary of that 9/11 event which changed people’s thinking all over the world. I am always surprised when people cannot see the religious dimension of what happened on that day.

Firstly, can anybody deny that since 9/11 the police-state, for instance in the USA (but not only), has made giant advances, and always in the name of 9/11? And can anybody claim that the advancing police-states make the peoples more free? Are they not rather paving the way for global enslavement? But Our Lord says that "the truth will make us free" (John 8:32). Does that suggest to anybody what 9/11 was? [. . . one more "BIG LIE" - Ed].

In which case, secondly, leaving aside the nigh-on 3,000 people murdered for the purposes of whoever the insiders were, has not the moral atmosphere of the entire world been polluted wherever this event was passed off as being what the media and politicians worldwide made it out to be? And is that pollution not still continuing? And is such a massive breaking of the Eighth Commandment ("Thou shalt not bear false witness") not a moral problem, a grave offense against God, and therefore a religious problem?

And is not the worldwide success of such a lie not a punishment from God upon the peoples of the world who do not want to have to live up to the demands of His Truth? In the time of the Antichrist, says Scripture (II Thessalonians 2:10-11), "to them that perish God shall send the operation of error, to believe lying: that all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity." Does "operation of error" not perfectly fit 9/11? Is then 9/11 not a major step towards the Antichrist? And is the Antichrist not a religious problem?

I hear someone objecting: "Alright, alright, the evidence persuades me that 9/11 was an inside job. But what can I do about it?" Answer, stop making your government(s) and your media into your religion, or half your religion, with a de-clawed Catholicism being the other half! Wake up! 9/11 IS a religious problem! Full story: Bishop Richard Williamson

Comment: 9/11 is itself cabala being the US emergency number for police, fire or paramedics.


Who invented the Jews?
Quite early on in his text, [Professor Shlomo] Sand [of Tel Aviv University] raises the crucial and probably the most relevant questions. Who are the Jews? Where did they come from? How is it that in different historical periods they appear in some very different and remote places?

Though most contemporary Jews are utterly convinced that their ancestors are the Biblical Israelites who happened to be exiled brutally by the Romans, truth must be said. Contemporary Jews have nothing to do with ancient Israelites, who have never been sent to exile because such an expulsion has never taken place. The Roman Exile is just another Jewish myth.

"I started looking in research studies about the exile from the land" says Sand in an Haaretz interview [11], "but to my astonishment I discovered that it has no literature. The reason is that no one exiled the people of the country. The Romans did not exile peoples and they could not have done so even if they had wanted to. They did not have trains and trucks to deport entire populations. That kind of logistics did not exist until the 20th century. From this, in effect, the whole book was born: in the realization that Judaic society was not dispersed and was not exiled."

Indeed, in the light of Sand's simple insight, the idea of Jewish exile is amusing. The thought of Roman Imperial navy was working 24/7 schlepping Moishe'le and Yanka'le to Cordova and Toledo may help Jews to feel important as well as schleppable, but common sense would suggest that the Roman armada had far more important things to do.

However, far more interesting is the logical outcome: If the people of Israel were not expelled, then the real descendants of the inhabitants of the Kingdom of Judah must be the Palestinians.

"No population remains pure over a period of thousands of years" says Sand. [12] "But the chances that the Palestinians are descendants of the ancient Judaic people are much greater than the chances that you or I are its descendents. The first Zionists, up until the Arab Revolt [1936-9], knew that there had been no exiling, and that the Palestinians were descended from the inhabitants of the land. They knew that farmers don't leave until they are expelled. Even Yitzhak Ben-Zvi, the second president of the State of Israel, wrote in 1929 that, 'the vast majority of the peasant farmers do not have their origins in the Arab conquerors, but rather, before then, in the Jewish farmers who were numerous and a majority in the building of the land.'"

In his book [When And How The Jewish People Was Invented? Resling 2008] Sand takes it further and suggests that until the First Arab Uprising (1929) the so-called leftist Zionist leaders tended to believe that the Palestinian peasants who are actually 'Jews by origin' would assimilate within the emerging Hebraic culture and would eventually join the Zionist movement. Ber Borochov believed that "a falach (Palestinian Peasant), dresses as a Jew, and behaves as a working class Jew, won't be at all different from the Jew." This very idea reappeared in Ben Gurion's and Ben-Zvi's text in 1918. Both Zionist leaders realised that Palestinian culture was soaked with Biblical traces, linguistically, as well as geographically (names of villages, towns, rivers and mountains). Both Ben Gurion and Ben-Zvi regarded, at least at that early stage, the indigenous Palestinians holding close to the land as ethnic relatives and potential brothers. They as well regarded Islam as a friendly 'democratic religion'. Clearly, after 1936 both Ben-Zvi and Ben Gurion toned down their 'multicultural' enthusiasm. As far as Ben Gurion is concerned, ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians seemed to be far more appealing.

One may wonder, if the Palestinians are the real Jews, who are those who insist upon calling themselves Jews?

Sand's answer is rather simple, yet it makes a lot of sense. "The people did not spread, but the Jewish religion spread. Judaism was a converting religion. Contrary to popular opinion, in early Judaism there was a great thirst to convert others." [13]

Clearly, monotheist religions, being less tolerant than polytheist ones have within them an expanding impetus. Judaic expansionism in its early days was not just similar to Christianity but it was Judaic expansionism that planted the 'spreading out' seeds in early Christian thought and practice.

"The Hasmoneans," says Sand, [14] "were the first to begin to produce large numbers of Jews through mass conversion, under the influence of Hellenism. It was this tradition of conversions that prepared the ground for the subsequent, widespread dissemination of Christianity. After the victory of Christianity in the 4th century, the momentum of conversion was stopped in the Christian world, and there was a steep drop in the number of Jews. Presumably many of the Jews who appeared around the Mediterranean became Christians. But then Judaism started to permeate other regions—pagan regions, for example, such as Yemen and North Africa. Had Judaism not continued to advance at that stage and had it not continued to convert people in the pagan world, we would have remained a completely marginal religion, if we survived at all."

The Jews of Spain, whom we believed to be blood related to the Early Israelites seem to be converted Berbers. "I asked myself," says Sand, "how such large Jewish communities appeared in Spain. And then I saw that Tariq ibn Ziyad, the supreme commander of the Muslims who conquered Spain, was a Berber, and most of his soldiers were Berbers. Dahia al-Kahina's Jewish Berber Kingdom had been defeated only 15 years earlier. And the truth is there are a number of Christian sources that say many of the conquerors of Spain were Jewish converts. The deep-rooted source of the large Jewish community in Spain was those Berber soldiers who converted to Judaism."

As one would expect, Sand approves the largely accepted assumption that the Judaicised Khazars constituted the main origins of the Jewish communities in Eastern Europe, which he calls the Yiddish Nation. When asked how come they happen to speak Yiddish, which is largely regarded as a German medieval dialect, he answers, "the Jews were a class of people dependent on the German bourgeoisie in the east, and thus they adopted German words."

In his book Sand produced a detailed account of the Khazarian saga in Jewish history. He explains what lead the Khazarian kingdom towards conversion. Bearing in mind that Jewish nationalism is, for the most part, lead by a Khazarian elite, we may have to expand our intimate knowledge of this very unique yet influential political group. The translation of Sand's work into foreign languages is an immediate must. (It is forthcoming in French, as reported in Are the Jews an invented people?, by Eric Rouleau).

Professor Sand leaves us with the inevitable conclusion. Contemporary Jews do not have a common origin and their Semitic origin is a myth. Jews have no origin in Palestine whatsoever and therefore, their act of so-called 'return' to their 'promised land' must be realised as an invasion executed by a tribal-ideological clan. . .

Russian Archaeologists find long-lost Jewish Capital
September 3, 2008 – Russian archaeologists say they have found the long-lost capital of the Khazar kingdom in southern Russia, a breakthrough for research on the ancient Jewish state. . . The city was the capital of the Khazars, a semi-nomadic Turkic peoples who adopted Judaism as a state religion, from between the 8th and the 10th centuries, when it was captured and sacked by the rulers of ancient Russia.

At its height, the Khazar state and its tributaries controlled much of what is now southern Russia, western Kazakhstan, eastern Ukraine, Azerbaijan and large parts of Russia's North Caucasus region. . . Full story:


Gathering to Armageddon – Part V

In Ezekiel 36:1-15 we discover the distinction between the nation of Israel and the Gentile nations is God's covenant with Israel. Although the Israelites have continually abused and broken that covenant and God has chastened the nation for its wickedness, He will separate His elect "Not by might, nor by power, but by His Spirit" ministered by two Hebrew prophets in Daniel's Seventieth Week so that the nation is born-again in one day (Joel 2:18-32; Isaiah 66:8; Zechariah 3:9). Then the consummation will overtake the desolate and the desolater, natural and spiritual Esau/Edom, so that heathen hopes of taking possession of Israel's natural and Spiritual inheritance must fail (Isaiah 28:22; Daniel 9:27; Joel 2:17).

In the natural type, Esau/Edom is sworn to kill Jacob/Israel. It holds dominion over the nation, impersonates the people of the Old Covenant with the objective of stealing back the birthright Esau sold to his brother for a bowl of lentils, and has turned faith in Israel to the service of mammon. These impersonators, who are accursed of God, will rule Jerusalem to the consummation (Genesis 27:39-41; Isaiah 34; Malachi 1:1-4; Romans 9:13; Daniel 9:27; Luke 21:24; Revelation 11:2).

When Jacob was returning to the land of his inheritance he feared for his life and tried to broker an agreement of peace with Esau/Edom (Genesis 32-33) who held dominion. Now at the end of the Gentile dispensation Jacob must return to the land of his Covenant to receive redemption's blessings yet "for fear of the Jews" he dare not forsake the safety of the Islamic nations of the ancient Assyrian Empire where he has resided ever since the deportations thousands of years ago (Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11; 27:13; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 39:27; Micah 5:3; Matthew 24:31).

As Jacob impersonated Esau in order to steal his father's blessing, Esau is impersonating Jacob to steal material blessings in his brother's new name. And as the natural types the Spiritual the first church of Rome also had no respect for the birthright but sold out for pagan creed and tradition and friendship with the world by impersonating Spiritual Israel, and lays claim to Abraham's blessing, our birthright. The one difference between Israel and the rest of the nations was God, and the one difference between Rome and Christianity is the birthright and blessing of Abraham. Put God to one side and Israel was like any other nation. Put the present Truth aside and the church is no different to the denomi-nations, as when Samson cut off his hair he was like any other man. Put the leadership of the Holy Ghost aside and the church is nothing but the world with God's Name attached to it. The world and the church are all of the same lump as Jacob and Esau were of the same parents, it is the Spirit of God that makes the difference.

Even in the Babylonian Talmud, the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church is considered Esau/Edom. According to Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 17, Rome and the International Banksters will make an agreement at the beginning of Daniel's Seventieth Week, which Rome will break in the midst of the week and force her religion upon all (Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Revelation 13). As natural Esau/Edom is impersonating and killing true natural Israelites and Semitic people generally to continue his deception, Rome is impersonating Christianity and has killed millions to force her mark of the beast and will kill many more millions in order to maintain her deception (Daniel 7:19-24; Revelation 13:14-18).

Ezekiel 36:1-15 contrasts "the mountains of Israel . . . the everlasting hills" of Jacob's prophecy, with the "mount of Seir" (Genesis 49:26; Ezekiel 35:2). In the natural as in its the spiritual antitype, "the enemy [Edom] has said against Israel, Ah, even the everlasting heights are ours in possession. . . Because it has a perpetual hatred and has shed the blood of the children of Israel," and laid claim to the lands of Israel and Judah since the Captivity (Ezekiel 35:5-6, 10; 36:2; Genesis 3:15). Esau/Edom is singled out as representative of the enemy of the people of the Old and New Covenants because the trail of the Serpent entered Edom when Esau married Hittite and Canaanite wives of Cain's race, and passed into Judah when John Hyrcanus forcibly assimilated Edom in 109BC. Hence Joseph and Mary fled Judea to Egypt with baby Jesus and did not return but lived in Galilee of the Gentiles. The enmity of the Serpent's seed has pursued the seed of the first and last Adam from Cain to the present day (Genesis 3:15; Ezekiel 35:5).

As Ezekiel 36:16-38 explains, God's holiness could not permit Judah's sin to pass unpunished; His reproach was to remove her from the land of the Covenant as a woman in her legal uncleanness was separated from the congregation. Even in captivity the Israelites profaned the Name of the Lord before the heathen, by usury, oppression, adultery, etc., so in order to vindicate and manifest His Name as holy, in opposition to the heathen reproaches brought upon it by Judah's sins and her punishment, He will be sanctified in the eyes of the heathen by His righteousness in restoring the Southern Kingdom from Babylon after the seventy years captivity then restoring "the whole house of Israel. . . from all countries" in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week.

Once physically restored to the land of the Covenant the Lord will cleanse the Judeans of their idols of covetousness, and the hypocrisy of formal outer religion. Thus His Name will be sanctified before the heathen. Although the partial reformation at the return from Babylon was an earnest of the full renewal thereafter under Messiah, the nation was not restored at Messiah's first Coming. The two kingdoms must first be gathered and reunited as one nation in the land so that not a single elect Israelite remains outside the land of the Covenant (Ezekiel 37; 39:28). Two hundred years before Ezekiel, Hosea prophesied this will take place in the third Millennium after the dissolution and dispersion of the Northern Kingdom. Not until then will the stony hearts of 144,000 elect Israelites be renewed by receiving the Spirit of the risen Christ (Hosea 6:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Isaiah 66:8; Ezekiel 39:29; Zechariah 12:10 – 13:9).

One undivided nation called Israel has been established since 1948, but this is a product of political Zionism. Ezekiel 37:7-9 indicates the emigration of the descendants of the twelve tribes will be precipitated by the earthquake that cleaves the mount of Olives at the close of the Gentile dispensation, destroying the Dome of the Rock, igniting the "hot" stage of World War III and stirring an exodus of genuine Semitic blood Israelites from their Muslim host nations to the land of the Covenant because in the providence of God, His enemy and the enemy of Jacob/Israel planned this war between the political Zionists and political Islam (Ezekiel 38:19-23). This agrees with Zechariah 14:4-5, Revelation 7:1-2, Ezekiel 37:9 and Matthew 24:31. A lesser number of Israelites will also emigrate from the (once) Christian nations. So "All things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are the called according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28).

Ezekiel traces the history of Israel from the Shekinah's departure from king Solomon's temple "made with hands" when the Lord turned His face from Judah at the beginning of the "times of the Gentiles" in chapter 10. He prophesies Judah's partial return to the land preparatory to Messiah's first Coming and the establishment of the New Covenant in Ezekiel 36, however the Ark of the Covenant and the Shekinah did not return when the temple was restored by Zerubbabel or when it was beautified by the Edomite king Herod, but took their abode in a "more perfect tabernacle not made with hands" (Matthew 3:16-17; Hebrews 9:11). When Israel crucified this Ark and Temple at the end of Daniel's Sixty-ninth Week, the Lord again turned His face from the nation, and the Shekinah resident in the Temple of Christ's Bride has shone His glory throughout the world (Acts 2:1-4; Matthew 28:18-20), while Israel has been "punished seven times more for her sins" and received "seven times more plagues" under Seven Trumpet judgments (Leviticus 26:18, 21; Revelation 8:7 – 9:21, 11:15 – 19).

Representing you as Christ's end-time Bride, John saw a vision set at the Seventh Trump when God will restart the clock for Daniel's Seventieth Week. In Revelation 11:19 we see the Ark of God's Testament in the Holy of Holies of the heavenly temple, signifying God's renewed favor towards and presence with Israel. His face will never again turn from the nation, and the way into His Presence is open to every Israelite through the riven veil of Messiah's crucified flesh. This signifies that the work of atonement is accomplished and discloses the true testimony of the New Covenant.

These Old Testament symbols portray the revelation of the 144,000 elect Israelites who will not see an Ark of shittim wood overlain with Gold and shadowed by two angels of gold, but its antitype, the glorified risen Messiah revealed by the three and a half year ministry of two Hebrew prophets endued by the Spirit that empowered Moses and Elijah of old (Zechariah 4; Hebrews 11). Jeremiah 3:15-16, "I will give you shepherds after to My own heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding. And when you are multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the Lord, they shall no more say, The ark of the Covenant of the Lord: it shall not come to mind: because they will not remember it or miss it, for it shall not be reconstructed." So much for Israeli government/Seventh Day Adventist propaganda.

Ezekiel 37 prophesies the political restoration of the present Israel state and the imminent return of the Israelites following the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet. Then God will set the land apart as holy unto Himself and inviolable (Exodus 19:5-6), so when Jerusalem is invaded in chapters 38 and 39 He will defeat the enemy on the mountains of Israel by a Supernatural assault of nature. And during the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week, His two prophets will be empowered to invoke natural convulsions to destroy their enemies, sanctifying His Name among the heathen and the Israelites (Revelation 11:6). Ezekiel 37:28 promises eternal blessings when the nation is born-again, transporting us beyond "the times of the Gentiles" to the Millennium where the Kingdom is restored to Israel (Acts 1:6) and the 144,000 is His Temple.

Ezekiel 38:1-7, "The word of the Lord came to me: Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him. Say, Thus saith the Lord God; I am against you, Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. I will turn you around, and put hooks in your jaws and lead you out with your whole army, horses and horsemen, all clad in full armour, a great host with bucklers and shields, all of them wielding swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his hordes; the house of Togarmah and all their troops from the north and many people with you. Prepare, and hold yourself in readiness, you, and all your host mustered around you, you are their commander".

The Lord God calls upon Ezekiel to prophesy against Gog, leader of Magog (Russians, Belorussians and Ukranians) and chief prince of her allies, Gomer (Turkey), Togramah (Armenia), Meshech (Assyria) who fathered the Poles, Finns, Czechs, Yugoslavs and related groups, and Tubal (Georgia), father of the Bulgarians, Hungarians, Albanians, Romanians, and other related groups. These nominally Christian nations have suffered oppression and the massacre of scores of millions by the hand of the non-Semitic anti-Semitic self-styled Jews. Led by their Khazar oppressors who are at enmity with the children of Jacob and Adam's race in general, they will be joined by Muslim Persia (Iran), Ethiopia and Libya.

Ezekiel 38:8-13, "Many years hence you will be called up for service: at the end of years you will swoop down into Israel, that will be lying in peace after the nation has been restored to statehood from war and is occupied by people now living in security, all of them brought together from the nations in the mountains of Israel, which had been a perpetual waste. You and all your hordes will roll down upon them like a storm and cover the land like a cloud. Thus saith the Lord God; at that time an evil thought will come to your mind. You will say, I will march against the land of unwalled villages, and fall upon these people living in such confidence, without walls, or bars or gates. And I will seize booty and carry it away as plunder, assailing the waste places now inhabited and the people who were gathered from the nations, who have gotten cattle and goods, and who dwell at the center of the Earth. Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish and all its villages will ask, Have you come to seize spoil? Have you assembled your forces to take slaves, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and to seize goods"?

At the end of the Gentile dispensation Russia and her Muslim allies will attack Israel, living in overconfident careless security. Sheba (Yemen) and Dedan (United Arab Emirates), and the merchants of Tarshish (a colony of Tyre in southern Spain), though not taking an active part against Israel, are well pleased to see others do it, and ready to deal in the ill-gotten spoil of the invaders. Gain is before godliness with these mercantile peoples, and as a secondary thought Russia will purpose to lay claim to the mineral riches of the Dead Sea.

Ezekiel 38:14-23, "Therefore, son of man, prophesy. Say to Gog, Thus saith the Lord God: On that day when My people Israel are dwelling in security, you will bestir yourself and come from all over the far north with your vast host of cavalry and cover the land like a cloud. It shall be in the latter days that I bring you against My land, so that the nations will know that I am God, when through you, Gog, I vindicate My holiness before their eyes."

"Thus saith the Lord God; Are you he of whom I have spoken in old time by My servants the prophets of Israel, who in those days prophesied for years that I would bring you against them? And on the day when Gog comes against the land of Israel, says the Lord God, My fury will be roused. For in My jealousy and in My blazing indignation I have spoken: surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; the fish of the sea, and the birds of the air, the beasts of the field, and all creatures that creep upon the ground, and all the men that live on the face of the earth, shall quake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, and the cliffs shall fall, and every wall shall tumble to the ground. I will call for a sword against him throughout all My mountains, says the Lord God: every man's sword shall be against his brother (Haggai 2:21-23; Zechariah 14:4, 10). With pestilence and with bloodshed I will enter into judgment with him, and I will rain upon him, upon his hordes and the many people that are with him, torrential rain, accompanied by hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus I will manifest My greatness and My holiness and make Myself known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord".

It is the predictions of earlier prophets (such as Isaiah 34) in allusion to the victory of God's Kingdom over the natural and spiritual Serpent's seed that accord with the matter at hand. Once again God prophesies against Russia, saying He will glorify His Name before the heathen through His victory without hand. As Judge He will "plead" with the nations on the principles of His own immutable justice to maintain His righteous cause (Isaiah 66:13-16; Joel 3:1-2) and the invading horde will be destroyed "in the mountains of Israel" by this Supernatural upset of nature. So the "hot stage" of the brief World War III will not be a nuclear holocaust but earthquakes and volcanoes "in divers places".

There are six holocene volcanoes in Syria, that is, six volcanoes that have been active since human civilization. The Golan Heights and Hauran Plain which extend north east almost to Damascus are scattered with dormant volcanoes and cinder domes and contain a crater lake. Es Safa in southern Syria, north-east of the Jabal ad-Duruz volcanic plateau, consists of a basaltic lava field covering an area of 220 square kilometers that contains at least 38 cinder cones; a boiling lava lake was observed in this area in the mid-nineteenth century. This volcanic field lies within the northern part of the massive alkaline Harrat Ash Shamah volcanic field that extends from southern Syria, through eastern Jordan to Saudi Arabia. The region is extremely scarce in water and is visited only occasionally by roaming Bedouins and archaeologists.

This local information enables us to understand what Brother Branham meant when he said, "That's where the New Jerusalem will break up right there. . . the Mount of Olives shall cleave part to the right and left when she pushes up from the beneath. Now, if they said pushing apart like this—It's pushing up, in that day when He stands, His holy feet upon the mountain. . ." (Future Home of the Heavenly Bridegroom and the Earthly Bride, p. 49:406; Zechariah 14:4-11).

Ezekiel 39:1-8, "Son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord God; I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn you around and drive you on to leave the extreme north so as to bring you to the mountains of Israel, then I will smite the bow out of your left hand and make your arrows drop out of your right hand. You and all your vast armies will die upon the mountains of Israel: I will give you to the birds of prey of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. You shall fall in the open field: for I have said it, says the Lord God. And I will send fire on Magog, and among those who dwell in self-confident security in the coastlands: and they shall know that I am the Lord. So will I make known My holy Name in the midst of My people Israel; and I will not let them profane My holy Name any more: and the heathen nations shall also know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel. Behold, it is coming! It shall be done, says the Lord God; this is the day of which I have spoken".

Ezekiel 39 supplements the previous chapter, adding further definition to the same picture. As God hardened Pharaoh's heart He will harden Gog's heart and drive Judaeo-Communist Russia to lead a number of Muslim countries to invade "the mountains of Israel" where they will be defeated without hand to vindicate His holy Name. The left hand holds the bow, the right hand bends it and fits on the arrow, yet it does not even come to an attack because the Lord "calls for a sword against him throughout all My mountains" (Ezekiel 38:21). This ignominious defeat will be a "hook in Gog's jaw" driving him to "nuke" Vatican City State, the United States and her apostate once Protestant church after Rome breaks her covenant in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, igniting Armageddon. As God raised up king Nebuchadnezzar to destroy apostate Judah He has raised Judaeo-Communism to destroy the false church. The fight is the Lord's, whose "sword" includes earthquakes and volcanic eruptions in Russia and the Kuril islands, which are littered with holocene volcanoes, some of which erupted only last year, with Klyuchevskaya spewing ash more that four miles into the sky. Tectonic retaliation will come upon the lands and maritime regions of Gog's sympathizers (Revelation 16:19-21) who have provided ships and troops so that the whole world will know Israel has been judged for her sins and must not be further punished.

The cleaving of the mount of Olives will be coincidental with the sinking of Los Angeles, which Brother Branham said, "will be worse than the last day of Pompeii"—men's hearts fail them for fear of nuclear war with distress between the nations and perplexity on account of the sea and the waves roaring with "great tidal waves everywhere" (Zechariah 14:4; Revelation 18:21-24; Luke 21:25).

Ezekiel 39:9-16, "Then those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go forth and make fires of their weapons, the shields and bucklers, bows and arrows, the handpikes, and spears. For seven years they shall burn them so they will not gather wood from the fields or cut down any out of the forests; for they will make fuel of the weapons: thus they shall despoil those who despoiled them, and plunder those who plundered them, says the Lord God."

"On that day, I will give Gog a place for burial in Israel, the Valley of the Travelers on the east of the [Dead] sea. It will block the road for all who travel that way; for there Gog and all his multitude will be buried: it will be called The valley of Hamongog. For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them, so that the land may be thoroughly cleansed. All the people of the land will be burying them; it will bring them renown on the day that I show My glory, says the Lord God. They will set apart men of continual employment, to traverse the whole land searching for those who remain upon the face of the earth, to bury them and so cleanse the land: they will begin their search at the end of seven months. As they pass through the land and one notices human bones, he shall set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the Valley of Hamongog. A city named Hamonah (or "Multitude") is there. Thus they shall cleanse the land."

After Russia's devastating defeat, the Israelites will spend seven years cleansing the land of weapons intended for their destruction and spend seven months burying the bodies where they fell. So vast is the mass that only a deep valley will suffice for their corpses. The seven years and the seven months imply completeness of cleansing and the Israelites' zeal for purity. How different from the ancient Israelites, who left not merely the arms, but the heathen themselves, to remain among them (Joshua 9; Judges 1:27-28; 2:1-3; Psalm 106:34-38), and forcibly assimilated Edomites, Khazars and their kin. Although it was their God who delivered them from death and sent destruction upon their enemies, the house of Israel will become famous because they bury the invader rather than the reverse. Whereas Israel formerly defiled the land with their abominations, having wrestled with God and prevailed, they now diligently cleanse the Land. The discarded weaponry is doubtless cherem and dedicated to destruction for the glory of the Lord.

Ezekiel 39:17-20, "As for you, son of man, thus saith the Lord God; Speak to the birds of every feather, and to all the beasts of the field, Assemble and come; gather from every quarter to the great sacrificial feast which I am preparing for you upon the mountains of Israel, and you shall eat flesh, and drink blood. You shall eat the flesh of warriors, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth—of rams, of lambs, of goats, and of bulls, all of them fatlings of Bashan. You shall eat fat till you are glutted, and drink blood till you are drunk, at the sacrificial feast which I am preparing for you. You shall be sated at My table with horses and riders, warriors and soldiers of every sort, says the Lord God."

All the warriors are likened to sacrificial animals. When the world is sacrificed for Israel, the nations will recognize God's power, and Israel His Lordship. Before all of the dead can be buried the birds and beasts will feast on their remains at the battlefield of the Lord's table. In his sermon, Proving His Word, the Prophet placed this event in the sequence of end time prophecy: "Now, remember, that was not Jesus talking to Abraham there, that could discern the thoughts in Sarah's mind behind him. That was not Jesus; He had not yet been born. But it was a Man in human flesh, that Abraham called "Elohim, the great Almighty," . . . And Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Sodom," now watch close, "in the days of Sodom, so will it be at the [parousia] Coming of the Son of man, when the Son of man is being revealed." Not no more as a church (See?), not no more; [now] the Bride is [being] called. See? "In that day the Son of man will be revealed." What? To join the Church to the Head, unite, the marriage of the Bride."

So long as the Book was closed Christ was a Mediator for the ignorance of the fulness of the Word, but when the last saint predestinated to His PART-Word Bride was sealed, the Church Ages ended and Christ's Mediation was fulfilled. As His end-time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites are predestinated to receive the fulness of the Word we do not require mediation and were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary. Redemption is over; when Jesus fulfilled Revelation 4, 5 and 10:1-6, the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Him back to earth in Word Form through the mouth of His Prophet (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7).

Christ is the Word, His end-time Bride must also be the Word, not mediated PART-Word. The revelation of the Seals calls His end-time Bride into "the unity of the faith" making us one with the Word as will be vindicated by the 'third pull' in "the manifestation of the Sons of God" to instill grace for translation faith (Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19). The Hebrew saints will acknowledge this when they recognize Christ's 'parousia:' "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready. And it was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousnesses of saints" (Revelation 19:7-8).

Throughout the Book of Revelation John represents you, Christ's end-time Bride; we know this because the Seals were not revealed until the Church Age saints were called. Revelation 4:1-2, "After the Church Ages were fulfilled I looked, and saw a door standing open in heaven: and the Voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet (Revelation 1:10), said, Come up hither, and I will show you things which must take place after the Ages of intercession for PART-Word. Instantly I was in the Spirit and saw a throne in heaven, and One (not two or three) seated on the throne" (Matthew 28:18; I Corinthians 15:25; Hebrews 2:8; Revelation 3:21).

The "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16, which is the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6 confirmed by the heavenly "Voice" of Revelation 18:4, is the revelation that sealed you into the Capstone of the Body, separated from the nominal church and instantly raptured into the Spirit in day of the Lord. Looking back through time, the Lord confirms your position in Christ and in the sequence of end time prophecy. The Body of the Church is made up; you are part of the Head and must be one with the Word. Aside from this revelation of history you will not encounter the Church again until the resurrected saints appear to you following the manifestation of the Sons of God to supercharge your faith for the body change. And Israel will not identify the true Church until their revelation of Christ's 'parousia' Coming to them after the three Woes, Seven Seals, Seven Vials, Seven Trumpets, the casting out of Satan, the tribulation, the breaking of Rome's covenant with the Jews and God's judgment of Rome. In Revelation 19 we see a preview of Israel's revelation of their King and Queen, returning to slay the sinners whereby Satan is bound until the general resurrection, and to purge earth for the Millennium.

Brother Branham continued, "The Bridegroom call will come right through this, when the Son of man will come down and come in human flesh to unite the two together. The Church has to be the Word; He is the Word, and the two unites together, and to do that it'll take the manifestation of the revealing of the Son of man. Not a clergyman. . . Do you see what I mean? See, it's Son of man, Jesus Christ, will come down in human flesh among us, and will make His Word so real that it'll unite the Church and Him as one, the Bride, and then she'll go Home to the wedding supper. Amen. She's already united (See?); we go to the wedding supper, not to the marriage. "Fill your self of all the flesh of mighty men, 'cause the marriage of the Lamb has come" [Ezekiel 39:17-20 - Ed]. But the rapture is going to the wedding supper. When the Word here unites with the person, and they two become one, and then what does it do then? It manifests the Son of man again, not the church theologians, the Son of man. The Word and the Church becomes one. Whatever the Son of man done, He was the Word, the Church does the same thing" (Proving His Word, p. 44:236; Revelation 22:17).

Ezekiel 39:21-29, "Thus will I manifest My glory among the nations, all nations shall see the judgments that I execute, and My hand which I have laid on them. From that day onwards the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God. And the nations shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they dealt so treacherously against Me, I hid My face from them, and gave them into the hand of their adversaries; and they all fell by the sword. I dealt with them according to their uncleanness and their transgressions, and hid My face from them."

"Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Now I will end the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy on the whole house of Israel, and I will be jealous for My holy Name. They shall forget their shame, and all the treachery they have practiced against Me, when they are settled and undisturbed in their land, when I have brought them back from the peoples, and gathered them from their enemies' lands, and through them have vindicated My holiness in the sight of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord their God because I caused them to go into exile among the nations, and then gathered them into their own land. I will not leave a single one of the (144,000 elect) among the nations. Neither hide My face from them any longer: for I have poured out My Spirit upon the house of Israel, says the Lord God".

The nations shall see the Lord's judgments before their very eyes (Ezekiel 38:23), and know that their power over Israel was Israel's guilt as defined in Ezekiel 14:13. In consequence of Israel's unfaithfulness Jehovah hid His face (Deuteronomy 31:17) and abandoned them to chastisement in the interest of righteousness. The phrase is to be understood in terms of the Aaronic blessing (Numbers 6:24-26) in which it is asked that God might look upon His people (Ezekiel 4:3). Seeing the reproach of their unfaithfulness and recognizing His holiness, Israel acknowledges itself deserving of punishment. Those who belong to Israel will know that He is their God, and having manifested Himself in such a final judgment the relation is one that cannot be disturbed, and He will render Israel triumphant over every form and agency of evil.

The outcome of the "hot stage" of World War III that initiates Daniel's Seventieth Week and vindicates God's presence with Israel announces dire consequences to any unbelieving nation or individual entertaining malicious intent. Since World War III was planned in the mid-nineteenth century as a controlled conflict between political Zionism and political Islam, this Supernatural intervention, demonstrably greater than the miraculous opening of the Red Sea which wrought salvation to the children of Israel and overthrew Pharaoh and his army, will hearten the descendants of the Northern and Southern Kingdoms to hastily return from the Muslim lands of their captivity where they will be persona non grata like their forebears in Egypt following the death of the firstborn.

In the Homeland the Lord will deal in "mercy upon the whole house of Israel," which He cannot do until they have returned from the nations of the Gentiles to that tiny geography outside whose borders His Covenant with the natural descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is of no effect. Here an election of 12,000 from each tribe will receive the Message of God's prophets and be gloriously reborn as a nation in one day (Isaiah 10:17; 66:8). It is this ministry, described in Ezekiel 40 – 48 that restores the theocracy after which the disciples of our Lord enquired prior to His ascension (Acts 1:6). This will be the ministry of restitution foretold in Isaiah 11:10-11, Joel 2:18-32, Amos 9:11, Acts 3:19-26, etc, that re-instructs them in holiness as the sanctuary wherein Christ and His Bride shall dwell through the Millennium (Malachi 4:4).

The Shekinah takes its abode in this "Millennium temple" of the 144,000 when Israel becomes one with the water of Life in Ezekiel 47, then in Ezekiel 48 we see the nation restored to tribal order. Ezekiel's apocalyptic sketch is considerably less detailed that the Revelation of Jesus Christ to His end-time Bride. Gog is anti-Israel but he not the anti-Christ; the anti-Christ will be the false prophet, the incarnate beast of Rome who will appear to save Israel from Gog, restore world peace and prosperity, and honour the vision of Israel's Illuminus first prime minister, David ben Gurion, by establishing Jerusalem as the capital of Lucifer's totalitarian global government, and "build a shrine of the prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the supreme court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents" (Look Magazine, January 16, 1962). Like Cyrus and Artaxerxes before him this "king of the Jews, the real Pope of the Universe, the Patriarch of the International Church" (Protocol 17:4) will probably restore certain temple treasures— perhaps even the golden menorah—and contribute materials and funding for the temple.

Ezekiel does not portray these details, nor does he mention the agreement Rome will strike with the International Jews, its abrogation and the martyrdom of the elect Israelites. He is silent on Russia's invasion and later atomic devastation of both the United States and the Vatican. Ezekiel 39:17-20 appears to be identical to Revelation 19:11-21, and other Scriptures, however it would seem to take place at the beginning of the tribulation, for here the victims are buried, in Revelation 19 there is no burying, neither there can there be because of radiation, disease and the consummation of life.

As we wait upon the Lord for further clarification and correction, the "BIG LIE" of the Dragon, the Beast and the false prophet is gathering the world to Armageddon. nl545.htm
