Bible Believers' Newsletter #545
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
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.

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: goldseek.com
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: cnbc.com
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: newswithviews.com
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: news.com.au
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: rense.com
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!

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 , "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.  "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." 
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,  "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: abc.net.au
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
