Norway Terror Attack: another Ultra Right Wing Zionist False Flag

Oslo bombing July 22/11

July 24, 2011 — A special police unit conducted drills or exercises near the opera house in downtown Oslo which involved the detonation of bombs in 2010—exactly what caused the bloodshed a few hundred meters away on Friday. [A bypasser videoed the damage. The image below shows the crater caused by the car bomb which appears to have blasted into the basement]. . . US intelligence agencies had been conducting a large-scale program of recruiting retired Norwegian policemen with the alleged purpose of conducting surveillance inside the country . . . SIMAS Surveillance Detection Units [Gladio revived?], provided a perfect vehicle for the penetration and subversion of the Norwegian police by NATO. . . Thanks to document dumps by CIA . . . subsidiary Wikileaks . . . an obvious path for using the Norwegian terror attacks as a rationale for overthrowing the current government has already been provided. Real or doctored State Department cables obligingly made available by Wikileaks, portray the Norwegian government which NATO hates as a collection of bunglers and misfits, unable to take effective measures to safeguard the national security.

Are the CIA, MI6 and MOSSAD running this 'City of London' false flag black op? Adrian Salbuchi identifies the Zionist root behind the Oslo attack and the Jerusalem Post quotes Breivik as saying: "Jews that support multiculturalism today are as much of a threat to Israel and Zionism as they are to us . . . So let us fight together with Israel, with our Zionist brothers, against all anti-Zionists, against all cultural Marxists/multiculturalists."

Oslo bombing July 22/11Anders Behring Breivik (born 13 February, 1979) is suspected of being the perpetrator of the 2011 Norway attacks. On 22 July, 2011 he allegedly approached a Labour Party youth camp posing as a police officer, then proceeded to open fire on the 13 to 25 year old youth present. He has also been linked with the bomb blast that took place approximately two hours earlier and is now in police custody. It is claimed he wrote to anti-Muslim and Zionist blogs Gates of Vienna, Jihad Watch, and run by Zionist Jew Hans Rustad under the pseudonym Fjordman, however Fjordman was in conversation on-line before, during, and after the slaughter when Breivik was imprisoned. Full story:

According to Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB), Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg first learned of this plot against his country last Wednesday after reading a "top secret" report prepared for him by the Norwegian Intelligence Service (NIS) on the late March computer attack against Norway's top military leaders that showed them involved in a conspiracy with Britain's MI5 Security Service and the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to launch a "two-phase" attack upon Norway modeled after false-flag operations in both Australia and America in the mid-nineties.

The false-flag operations being modeled in Norway were based on the 19 April 1995 bombing attack on the Oklahoma Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building said to have been caused by a lone right-wing Christian fundamentalist who used a fertilizer bomb that killed 168, and the 28 April 1996 Port Arthur massacre in Australia ( [However Breivik, like Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols is not a Christian].

Man of SteelThis is a false flag attack against Norway which is prepared to support a UN resolution President Mahmoud Abbas is expected to bring before the UN in September for recognition of a Palestinian state within the borders prevailing before the 1967 war, with East Jerusalem as its capital. This was NOT a "lone gunman" massacre any more than the JFK, Fort Hood and Port Arthur shootings and the Oklahoma Bombing, which were all blamed on innocent 'patsies.' The "image to the beast" was warning Norway: "Stay in line, or else!" As it warned Australia's Stalin and "man of steel," war criminal John Howard, by having him in Washington to witness the WTC false flag black op on 9/11.

A Norwegian pension fund has divested shares from Israeli corporations, and two Israeli firms have been excluded from a €450 billion oil fund. Norway is not a member of the EU and she is withdrawing from the treacherous and cowardly invasion of Libya where her state oil company Statoil has large investments. The perfidious governments of the US, France and UK have recognized traitors of the rebel council as the "sole governmental authority" of Libya as they "transformed a squalid pack of nominally Islamic (but ideologically Marxist) pimps, dope peddlers, and black market organ smugglers into the 'legitimate' government of Kosovo—a province and organic part of Serbia for centuries." Norway was warned: "Remember Japan and Kosovo? Stay in line, or you'll be next!"

Plain-speaking Jewish journalist Barry Chamish writes: "Norway is Israel's number one enemy in the West, the premier organizer of Palestinian statehood today, and the promoter of the ghastly Oslo Accords of the '90s. The disdain of Jews towards Norway was nowhere clearer to be seen as in the reports of its recent terror attacks. . . someone was fixing up his image at the last second. He had a Twitter account set up with no tweets and one literary message, and one idiotic [and altered] Facebook page . . . give us some credit for rationality—no thirty-two year old man still plays video games . . . while hunting and enjoying Machiavelli. This personality page was too violent and political to be real. . . Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Store [who] heads an international aid committee for Palestine . . . told the youths that the Palestinians deserve a country of their own and that the occupation must end . . . The next generation of Israel's political enemies were gunned down, execution-style at camp. . ."

German journalist Ulrich Sahm reported on the pro-Israel website that many of the youths who survived the massacre said they thought the killer, dressed as a police officer, was simulating Israeli crimes against Palestinians in the occupied territories. They believed "the cruelty of the Israeli occupation" was being demonstrated to them (

Still confused? With the clear-minded prescience of 9/11 and the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico, Hollywood's backers predicted Norway's false flag black op in "Captain America," a movie purveying fear to distract from the 'hidden hand' behind the scenes and to finger Zionist-manufactured Neo-Nazis and opponents of the multiculturalism (miscegenation) contagion accursed by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, replicating the original sin. Jesus Messiah prophesied "the people against whom the Lord has indignation forever" would impose this iniquity to inflame "religious and race hatreds [they] have fostered into a huge growth in the course of the past twenty centuries" with the purpose of dividing and conquering the nations for global Hegemony as Lucifer's children (Protocol 5:5; Genesis 1:11; 6:1-4; Malachi 1:4; Matthew 24:37; Revelation 18:21-24).

Mind-manipulated Breivik was used for this Satanic attack to direct "the perplexed" of all so-called "religions of the Book" into the Satanic amalgam of the Judaeo-Catholic church as per Albert Pike's Military Blueprint for Lucifer's totalitarian one world government, behind which are the enemy of God and man, I Timothy 6:10, Mr. Rothschild, Judaeo-Communism, then Armageddon as God's Holy Bible and Satan's Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion clearly define for both camps.

Albert Pike Mason cigar labelWorld War Three is to be fomented by using the differences the agentur of the Illuminati stir up between Political Zionists and the leaders of the Moslem world. The war is to be directed in such a manner that Islam (the Arab World including Mohammedanism) and Political Zionism (including the State of Israel) will destroy themselves while at the same time the remaining nations, once more divided against each other on this issue, will be forced to fight themselves into a state of complete exhaustion physically, mentally, spiritually and economically (as per Protocol 14). Can any unbiased and reasoning person deny that the intrigue now going on in the Near, Middle, and Far East is designed to accomplish this devilish purpose? After World War Three is ended, those who aspire to undisputed world domination will provoke the greatest social cataclysm the world has ever known:

"We shall unleash the Nihilists and Atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will be from that moment without compass (direction), anxious for an ideal, but with
out knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view, a manifestation which will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time" (William Guy Carr, Pawns in the Game, p. xv-xvi).

This strategy is corroborated by Dr. Dennis L. Cuddy PhD. in "">The Power Elite's
use of Wars and Crises
It is clear from this report why Brother Branham called America "the prostitute of the nations." She is the whore pimped by the enemy of God and man who has seduced Spain, Russia, Germany, France, Britain, China, the nations of Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, to destruction with flatteries and lying promises of freedom, truth, democracy, and peace she herself has never known, and delivered bondage, subterfuge, dictatorship, and war. As a 'colony of the 'City of London,' she is under the "strong delusion that they too should believe the lie and be damned by not believing the Truth but have pleasure in unrighteousness" (II Thessalonians 2:11-12).

This New World Order, financed through tax-exempt foundations by banksters and ignorant US taxpayers, commenced in Russia in 1917. In an interview on Australia's taxpayer-funded propaganda network, war criminal Tony Blair was peddling a cerebral one world hybrid religion for his Judaeo-Catholic tax-exempt Faith Foundation "in partnership with a network of [faith-exempt] leading global research universities including Yale, National University of Singapore, Durham University, McGill University, Tecnologico de Monterrey, and Peking University".

Here is the short cut to the nub of the matter.
Breivik is another expendable pawn, a "useful idiot" serving the objectives of the City of London "and knows it not" (Revelation 3:17). A further illustration of this subterfuge is the City's support for CIA and MI6-directed rebellions against legitimate governments throughout the Middle East to "grow democracy out of the barrel of a gun." Their objective is to enable the nationals to democratically elect their own destruction in the form of fanatical Islamic governments who can be provoked into the "hot stage" of World War III against the political Zionists. And remember, the City plans for the pope of Rome to rule the world from Jerusalem (Daniel 9:27; 11:45).

Who would Jesus bomb (Revelation 17:16; 18:8-20)?

Iran tells Christian Pastor: Recant or Face Execution

July 15, 2011 — Baptist Press reported July 8: Christians in Iran were challenging news reports that Nadarkhani's death penalty had been annulled. The Christian Solidarity Worldwide human rights organization reported July 14 that the court's written verdict had been released, confirming that Nadarkhani faces execution unless he renounces his faith.

The original verdict on charges of apostasy was based on "fatwas" by Iran's most powerful religious leaders—Ayatollahs Khomeini, Khamenei and Makarem Shirazi—meaning the Supreme Court may have been reluctant to overturn the verdict for fear of inviting controversy, CSW advocacy director Andrew Johnston said in a press statement.
Following reports of the verdict, the US State Department issued a statement expressing "dismay" over the situation, according to Fox News. Human rights advocates, however, say apostasy isn't even identified as a crime under Iranian law. . . Nadarkhani was arrested in October 2009 while attempting to register his church. His arrest is believed to have been due to questioning the Muslim monopoly on the religious instruction of children in Iran. . .

Former French FM: Israel Controls French Intelligence

July 20, 2011 — Former French Foreign Minister Roland Dumas referred in a book he published entitled "Coups et blessures" (Assaults and Injuries), that "The Israelis are doing whatever they want in France, and are controlling the French Intelligence with what serves them". . .

Dumas strictly affirmed, "The Iranian atomic bomb is in my view similar to the weapons of mass destruction possessed by former Iraqi President Sadam Hussein, i.e. I don't believe in all of that. . . "The confusion in the French policies goes back to known interferences, where Israel's close presence makes all analysis suspicious". . . Dumas defended the Iranian point of view regarding the need to possess nuclear energy reactors, where its oil reserve might not last for more than sixty years. . . Full story:

Col. Gaddafi sends Message to Russia, China

July 20, 2011 — The Libyan symbolic leader informed members of the Security Council in his message that the alliance decided to carry out mass murder against the Libyan people by targeting their only drinking water source, where billions were invested and without it life stops in Libya. He wondered what is the relation between this factory and the protection of civilians that NATO claims it is carrying out?

The African leader said that the alliance is claiming to be protecting civilians in Libya by bombs, starvation and the hindering of life in general. He said that therefore civilians in Libya are in dire need for protection against the (NATO terrorist) alliance and he urged members of the (so-called UN security) council to bear international and moral responsibility as members of the Council, and to stop the NATO aggression against Libya which exceeded all descriptions.

The world is watching China and Russia, which both failed to prevent the abuse of the so-called international laws by the white racist former colonial powers of Britain, France, other European neo-colonialists and the imperialist USA. . .

Redefining STUPID

Brother Branham said: "The world is going insane".

Brother Paul wrote: German TV news featured a story on Ethiopia. The opening scenes showed lush green fields full of crops and explained that farmers export their food crops to Europe because "the Ethiopian people are too poor to pay the prices they receive for produce sold to Europe." The next story said millions in Ethiopia and Somalia are supposedly hungry in refugee camps, and Europe is donating €millions so these countries can buy food and is airlifting food. So first we BUY food from them, AND THEN give them millions so they can buy food from us. The NUTSOS are running the ASYLUM!

The Australian Federal Government will fund: two thirds of the A$13million purchase price of a 2,000 sq. mile cattle station which they propose will become one of the world's largest "carbon farms," drawing pollution from the atmosphere by selling offsets to companies that pollute. [That's NEW physics]! The conservation effort will begin with the removal of 17,000 cattle by year's end, significantly reducing emissions of methane gas. [THAT'S the trick]! The project managers will then orchestrate a campaign to weed out introduced plants that have choked the propagation of native, carbon-storing species. [Gotta have magic "native carbon-storing" plants]! New efforts will be made to cull the population of feral camels, [methane gas?] and the company will manage fires on the property. [GOOD-O]!

UN Food and Agriculture Organization economist Mario Zappacosta said: "About 10,000-12,000 tons of cereals are needed for every 100,000 people." The very poor, such as those in Southern Sudan, are being priced out of the cereal market. He expects meat and milk to rise at least as much as grains because meat and milk is made from cereal grains and soybeans. According to FAO statistics, cereal grains, like corn, were up 39% in one year, and oils and fats were up 58%.

If rats were consuming 13 billion bushels of grain a year and they could be stopped with a stroke of the pen, it would happen. If a new blight, weed, or insect was robbing the poor of that much corn, we would have action in Congress. But the lobbies that support the ethanol industry are so powerful; few voices have been heard in opposition.

Why the silence? Why does the US government exclude food and fuel from its Consumer Price Index? Why doesn't the United Nations point out that a major source of the problem is burning corn? Why doesn't even one Member of Congress point out what the subsidy to ethanol is really costing? Why don't Bill and Melissa Gates, Warren Buffet, or George Soros start a project to stop food burning?

Answer: Because they are eugenicists and the objective is massive world DEPOPULATION! Full story:

Brother Luke wrote: It all boils down to "free" energy. A while ago I purchased some Kakadu plums and went to pick them up from the truck depot as they came from Northern Territory. One of the truck drivers there told me his truckload of pumpkins came from South Australia, and they were heading to Queensland. The week before, he transported a truckload of pumpkins from Queensland to South Australia. The system is set-up to burn oil. So pseudo-free trade is using the energy of individuals, towns, states and nations against one another to enslave men to a wicked system designed by international banksters (who own the oil companies) to return the world back to serfdom.

Free energy is available from the vacuum of space, but as Norman Dodd, Director of Research for Congressman Reece's Select Committee Investigation into the subversive activities of the tax-exempt foundations discovered between 1952 and 1954, human activities are franchised worldwide as outlined in the editorial of Newsletter 308.

Mr. Rothschild explains: his application of the laws of energy on the 25th anniversary of the Third World War, called the "Quiet War," conducted using subjective biological warfare—you and I and everyone else—fought with "silent weapons" of Modern 'Commercial Law' based on Ancient Babylonian Codes. This looter, his privately-owned central banks and kindred banksters employed your kinetic energy to steal 97% of the value of the US dollar and most other fiat currencies which they have converted into hard assets and sayso. The world is incurably insane.

Zechariah's Third Vision

In Romans 11:22-26 Paul cautioned Christians in Rome to "note the kindness and severity of God: severity toward the nation of Israel that has fallen from grace; but kindness toward you provided you continue in His kindness; otherwise you too will be cut off. And if Israel does not persist in unbelief it will be grafted in; for God is able to graft them in again. . . I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own conceits; for although individual elect Israelites receive the "blessing of Abraham" and new birth, their nation, like Pharaoh, has been hardened against and blinded to God's Word until the full number of elect Gentiles is baptized into Christ, then the whole nation will be born-again in one day—[all 144,000]" (Isaiah 66:8; Ezekiel 39:22; Zechariah 3:9).

Paul established his case for Israel's salvation on the authority of Isaiah 59:20-21, but I Thessalonians 2, II Timothy 3-4, and Revelation 3:17 foretell the hardened blindness of Christendom at the end of our dispensation, that God might return to Israel with mercy and fulfill Daniel's Seventieth Week. We shall read Isaiah 59 in its entirety because Israel's wretched moral and spiritual condition at that time is so like our worldly-wise "wicked and adulterous generation of sign-seekers" that is blind to the vindicated Scriptural signs of the Presence of Jesus Messiah in these last days (Luke 17:28-30).

Isaiah 59:1-21, "Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or his ear too dull to hear; your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear. Your hands are defiled with blood and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue mutters wickedness. No one enters suit justly, nor goes to law honestly; they trust on empty pleas and speak lies, they conceive mischief and bring forth iniquity. They hatch the eggs of asps, and weave the spider's web; he who eats their eggs dies, and a viper is hatched from one which is crushed. Their webs will not serve as clothing; men will not cover themselves with their handiwork. Their works are works of iniquity, and deeds of violence are in their hands. Their feet run to do evil, and they hasten to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity, desolation and destruction are in their highways. They know not the way of peace, and there is no justice in their paths; they have twisted their ways before them, no one who walks in that way knows peace."

Israel had been conquered by Assyria and her citizens transported to various colonies throughout the empire. In Isaiah 59 the Lord charges the Judahites with moral corruption as they gravitate to the worship of Babylon's pagan trinity of gods—the very apostasy that brought God's wrath upon Israel. Judah, too, will be conquered and her people exiled to Babylon, where they would further "twist their ways before them," devising the Talmud, which is the antithesis to the Torah, and generated such disobedience her people committed Deicide (Matthew 15:1-9). The condition of the Israelites at that time was wretched, miserable, poor, spiritually blind and naked like the nominal Christian world today which is "crucifying to themselves the Son of God afresh".

"Therefore justice is far from us, and righteousness does not overtake us; we wait for Light, and behold darkness; and for brightness, but we walk in gloom. We grope like a blind man along a wall, we feel our way like those who have no eyes; we stumble at noon as in the twilight, among those in the prime of life we are like dead men. We all growl like bears, and sadly moan like doves; we look for justice, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far from us. For our transgressions are multiplied before in Your Presence; our sins witness against us; for our transgressions are ever with us, and we are conscious of our iniquities: rebelling against and denying the Lord, and turning away from following after our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart lying words. Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth has fallen in the public squares, and uprightness cannot enter. Truth is so lacking that he who departs from evil makes himself a prey."

"The Lord saw it, and it displeased him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man to help and wondered that there was no one to intervene; then His own arm brought Him victory, and His righteousness upheld Him. He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation upon His head; He put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and wrapped Himself in fury as a mantle. According to their deeds, so will He repay, wrath to His adversaries, requital to His enemies; to the coastlands He will render requital. So they shall fear the Name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; for He will come like a rushing stream, which the wind of the Lord drives".

Romans 11:26-27, "And so all Israel will be saved; as it is written in Isaiah 59:20-21: "And He will come to Zion as Redeemer, to the elect in Jacob who turn from transgression, says the Lord. And this will be My Covenant with them, says the Lord: My Spirit which is upon you, and My Words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth, or out of the mouth of your children, or out of the mouth of your children's children, says the Lord, from the time of their new birth and for evermore".

Meanwhile, Romans 11:28-32: "As regards the Good News of Jesus Messiah the Israelites are enemies of God for your sakes: but in so far as the election is concerned, they are beloved of God because of His promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, because God's gifts of grace and His calling [of the elect blood Israelites (NOT Jews)] are irrevocable. [You must appreciate that if the Abrahamic Covenant is abrogated the New Testament is of no force, for Abraham's Seed is Jesus Christ, and we Gentiles are Abraham's seed by the baptism of the Holy Ghost]. For whereas you Gentiles have in times past refused belief and obedience toward God's Word promulgated to you by the creation (Romans 1:21) but have now obtained mercy through their disobedience: even so Israel has now also not believed that through your mercy [which provokes them to jealousy of your faith (verse 11) they also may obtain mercy. For God has shut up ALL men together in unbelief and disobedience to the divine will that HE might have mercy upon all men".

"There is no difference: for the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ is for all who believe, since all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" (Acts 15:9; Romans 3:22-23; 10:12-13). All men are shut up in consequence of the Fall. The Gentiles are first shut up in the process of unbelief as Paul explains in Romans 1, and when they were ripe for mercy the hearts of the Israelites were hardened. Israel followed by means of this organic connection (Romans 2), and when their confinement under the curse of the Law of sin and death (Romans 8:2; 7:13; Galatians 3:13, 22) was abolished, they proved by their unbelief and self-righteous conceit that "all Israel is not Israel" for the mass were children of the bondwoman; few were children of the free and able to enter liberty in Christ. Again, when the last elect Gentile is baptized into Christ Israel shall be ripe for mercy. Only by the terrible power of worldliness bringing reprobates under bondage to their ten carnal senses could it come to pass that sin will be consummated in unbelief under God's judgment in order that sinners might seek Divine mercy while grace is still available (Romans 5:20; 7:13).

Now let us turn to Zechariah 2 where the Lord reveals the third of nine continuous visions. As his second vision foretold the destruction of Israel's foes, the third unveils the prophecy of the Kingdom with the surety of great enlargement and absolute security under the New Covenant.

The Third Vision

In Zechariah 2:1-5 we see a man with a measuring line surveying the present dimensions of Jerusalem with a view to its indefinite enlargement to accommodate the redeemed. As he goes away to do his surveying, Zechariah sees Brother Branham, the communicating angel, approaching from the direction in which the surveyor has disappeared. However before he reaches Zechariah he is met by a third angel, the Angel of the Lord (verses 5, 8-9) coming from the opposite direction and who instructs him as in Revelation 1:1: "Run [with the Good News]; say to that young man [Zechariah], Jerusalem shall be inhabited as unwalled villages for the multitude of men and cattle therein: for I will be to her a wall of Fire round about, and I will be the glory within her".

This third angel is the Angel of the Lord as confirmed by Isaiah 49:1-12, which speaks of Jesus Messiah as the ideal Overcomer and Prince of God, or "Israel," and who, having been rejected by the Israelites calls we Gentiles, "Listen, to Me you far-off lands; The Lord called Me before My birth, from the body of my mother He made mention of My Name. He made My Words like a sharp sword (Hebrews 4:12); in the shadow of His hand He hid Me, and made Me a sharp arrow in His quiver. He said to Me, You are My servant, Israel, in whom I will be glorified. Then I replied, But I have laboured in vain, I have spent My strength for naught, and in vain: nevertheless surely My judgment is with the Lord, and My recompense rests with God."

"And now, said the Lord—who formed Me from the womb to serve Him and commissioned Me to restore to Him His people Israel, who strengthened Me to perform the task and glorified Me in doing it—It is too light a thing that You should be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will make You a Light to the Gentiles, that My salvation may extend to the end of the earth."

"Thus says the Lord, the Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, to He Whom man despises, Whom the nation of Israel abhors, to a Servant of rulers
(Matthew 17:27; 26:52-53), [Gentile] Kings shall see [Him as God's Light] and stand to attention, princes shall [see and] worship, because of the Lord who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen You [as His elect" which in turn makes them His elect (Isaiah 42:1)].

THUS SAITH THE LORD, I have I heard You in an acceptable time, in a day of salvation I have helped You [as man, to accomplish man's salvation by performing the duty of Kinsman Redeemer for Adam and his seed]: I will preserve Your Life [from Satanic assault in order that You may make a voluntarily surrender for Your Wife as Adam forfeited his life for Eve (Matthew 26:42)] and make You a covenantal pledge to Israel (Isaiah 42:6; Matthew 23:39) to restore the land of the Covenant and [like Joshua, whose name you share], divide the land among its true heirs (Isaiah 54:3; 61:4)]; saying to the [Israelite] prisoners, Come forth (Isaiah 42:7; Zechariah 9:12); to those in darkness, [Gentiles having no Light as to the one true God], Show yourselves! They shall feed alongside the roads and on all bare hills; there shall be pasture in the ways, and their pastures [shall be] in all high places."

This "acceptable time" is the Pentecostal Jubilee or release from which apostate Israel disqualified herself at Passover—the "acceptable time" for the Gentiles who were ripe to receive God's mercy as Paul explained in Romans 11:28-32 (Isaiah 61:2; II Corinthians 6:2).

"They shall not hunger or thirst; neither scorching wind nor sun shall smite them: for He who has mercy will lead them and guide them by cool waters. And I will make all My mountains [submit to me as My creations and lower themselves to] become a way, while [the valleys] shall be exalted. These shall come from afar: look, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of Sinim." (Probably an Israelite colony in Kai-Fung-Fu established some time before the fall of Jerusalem in AD70).

In their lust for mammon and dominion over Satan's Eden, Talmudic Jews have concocted an ungodly interpretation of Isaiah 46 and 60, presuming they refer to Jerusalem when they speak of New Jerusalem over which Jesus Messiah and the Church will reign as King and Queen. Thus Israeli Sephardic leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef said non-Jews exist to serve Jews. "Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world; only to serve the People of Israel," he said during a public discussion of what kind of work non-Jews are allowed to perform on Shabbat. "Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat," he said to some laughter. Yosef, the spiritual leader of the Shas Party and the former chief Sephardi rabbi of Israel, also said that the lives of non-Jews are protected in order to prevent financial loss to Jews.

Israel's wall of shame, 2007Because of the "wall of shame" the Zionists have erected, Isaiah's prophecy clearly is not speaking of present-day Jerusalem or Judah. So it is the vastly extended 1,500-mile square by 1,500-mile high New Jerusalem that will be "inhabited as unwalled villages," whose defense will be the encompassing Shekinah signifying the Presence of Jesus Messiah, the glory of God within. Isaiah 60:18-20, "Violence shall no more be heard in your land, devastation or destruction within your borders; but you shall call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise. The Sun shall be no longer be your light by day nor will the Moon give light for brightness at night, for the Lord your God will be your everlasting Light, and He will be your glory. Your Sun shall never set, and your Moon shall never wane; for the Lord will be your everlasting Light, and your days of mourning shall be ended" (Isaiah 4:5; 26:1; Zechariah 2:10; Revelation 21:23-27).

Neither does Zechariah 2:5 refer to Jerusalem following Judah's return from exile because Ezekiel saw the Shekinah depart the Temple in 594BC before the destruction of Jerusalem (Ezekiel 10:18-22), and neither the Ark of the Covenant nor the Shekinah ever returned to the Temple. The Shekinah will not return until Ezekiel 43:1-7 when the Lord anoints the Most Holy with His Presence after the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, fulfilling the six-fold purpose of Gabriel's visit to Daniel by the new birth of the 144,000 elect Israelites who will be the antitype, the Millennium Temple—made not with hands, but living stones, built and inhabited by the Word of God (Daniel 9:24; Revelation 14:1-5). While the glorified Jesus Christ, the antitype of the Ark of the Covenant, will not set foot on earth until the Millennium after the elect Israelites, having recognized His 'parousia' Coming, declare, "Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord" (Matthew 23:39). Quite obviously that compound redemptive Name is LORD JESUS CHRIST (Luke 24:47; Acts 2:38-39; 4:12).

Ezekiel 43:1-7, "Afterward he brought me to the gate facing east: and the Shekinah Cloud of the glorious Presence of the God of Israel came from the Mount of Olives east of Jerusalem (Zechariah 14:4): and the sound of His Coming was like the sound of many waters [the saints in unison with Christ as witnesses of judgment (Numbers 24:7; Jude 14:15; Revelation 1:15; 17:15; 19:6)]: and the earth was lightened with His glory (Ezekiel 1:28; 10:4; Revelation 18:1). And the vision was like the appearance I had seen when He came to destroy the city, like the vision I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face as the glory of the Lord entered the Temple by the gate facing east. Then the Spirit caught me up, and brought me into the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the Temple."

"I heard Him speaking to me out of the Temple, while the man stood beside me. He said, Son of man, the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever. . ."

This is the anointing of the Most Holy Place where the Lord "will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever"—the "Temple" that is to be re-instructed. This is when the King takes His throne in the heart of the 144,000 for the Millennium reign, completing the number of names in the Lamb's Book of Life permitted entry to the New Jerusalem (Jeremiah 3:12-18; Daniel 9:24; Revelation 21:27 – 22:1-5).

The angel who measured the ruined city of old Jerusalem in Zechariah 2:1-2 is not identified, however I believe the angel who measures New Jerusalem is Brother Branham whom certain followers of his Message sought to worship but were reprimanded and brought to correction as prophesied in Revelation 21:15 – 22:11 (Bruised Serpent, p. 719:17-50).

Zechariah 2:6-7, "Attention! Flee from Babylon, the land of the north, says the Lord: for I have spread you abroad and I will gather you from the four winds of the heaven (Septuagint), says the Lord, even to Zion. Deliver yourselves, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon" (Revelation 14:9-11).

To the Judeans who returned to the Land of the Covenant this urgent call of the Angel of the Lord to flee would appear to be directed toward the mass who remained in Babylon, but that understanding veils the now imminent reality. As we discovered in Zechariah's first two visions, it was the Angel of the Lord who scattered the Judahites by the four winds which symbolize war and strife, and it is He who will soon gather them—principally from the Muslim lands of the ancient Assyrian empire—to Zion, which is inseparably connected with the Temple, "for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem will be [deliverance] the only place of safety, as the Lord has said, among the remnant whom the Lord shall call" (Joel 2:32).

This urgent call of the Angel of the Lord will be Revelation 7:1-8 gathering them from the Babylonian religion of Talmudic Judaism by the Message of restoration and revelation of the two Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11—as He called His end-time Bride out from "MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT" (Revelation 18:4).

sign of Christ's parousia ComingNow the only way prior to the regeneration of the 144,000, or the Millennium, or the new heavens and new earth in which the Lord could be regarded as "a wall of fire round about and be the glory in the midst of Jerusalem" is by Christ's 'parousia' Coming to Israel. He will return to the Mount of Olives whence He departed as the Shekinah or Pillar of Cloud and Fire prophesied in Zechariah 14:3-5: "His feet shall stand upon the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east." This accords with Ezekiel's vision of the Shekinah glory of the Presence of the Lord returning by way of the east (Ezekiel 43:1-7). And as this image of the Pillar of Cloud that manifest over Tucson, Arizona USA on February 28, 1963 was "the sign of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to us Gentiles" (Daniel 7:9; Matthew 24:3; 26:64; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7, 14; 18:1). The Lord will display a suitable manifestation of the Pillar of Cloud above the Mount of Olives at the close of the Gentile dispensation to signify Messiah's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel (Zechariah 14:4; Ezekiel 43:2; Matthew 24:30-31; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7).

Zechariah 2:8-11, "For Thus saith the Lord Almighty, after restoring the glory [of His Presence to Jerusalem], He has commissioned Me to visit His wrath upon the nations which spoiled you: for He who touches you touches the apple of His eye. For with the mere shake of My hand they shall be a spoil to those that serve them: and [by the execution of this judgment] you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me [the Angel of the Lord]" (II Thessalonians 1:7-10; Revelation 19). Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for I am coming, and I will dwell among you, says the Lord. Many nations shall join themselves to the Lord in that day, and shall be My people: and I will dwell in the midst of you, and you shall know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me to you".

Here is a further example of the true Oneness of the Godhead. Jehovah of the Old Testament is Jehovah-Saviour—Jesus Christ of the New—this is one and the same Person (Isaiah 7:14; 9:6; 43:3; 44:5-6; 45:21) for there is no trinity (Isaiah 44:24), God being at once the Sender and the Sent. Isaiah 48:16, "Draw near to Me and hear this: from the first I have not spoken in secret; at the time it comes to pass I will be there. For the Lord God, has sent Me and His Spirit." Both offices manifest His glory.

Zechariah 2:12, "And the Lord will inherit Judah as his portion in the holy land [as Son of David] (Deuteronomy 32:9), and will take pleasure in Jerusalem again." The elect Israelites will forever be His servant nation, and servants to their King and His Queen. Romans 11:7 and 28-29 explain that although the course of God's grace to the Israel nation is interrupted for a time, the Covenant remained intact so when the 144,000 recognize the sign of Christ's parousia Coming to them the nation will be born-again in one day, and the world will move toward the great battle of Armageddon.

Within these verses one could define Messiah's first Coming followed by the Gentile dispensation—the fulfillment of Genesis 9:27: "God will enlarge Japheth and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem," and Messiah's recognition by the 144,000 elect Israelites. But ultimately they speak of the restoration of the kingdom to Israel, which is enlarged by the union of myriads of Christians from every Adamic family (Isaiah 2:1-4; 65:18-19; Micah 4:1-5), for the boundaries of the Old Covenant will be enlarged until they are coextensive with the limits of the habitable earth (Zechariah 6:15; 8:20-23; 9:10; 14:9-16).

Zechariah 2:13, "Hush, all [weak and ignorant] flesh, before the [omnipotent and omniscient] Lord: for He has roused Himself from His holy habitation." All flesh is summoned to wait in reverential silence for the day of the Lord, for He has risen from His heavenly habitation to destroy His foe in the consummation prior to the Millennium: let His enemies beware. As Christ's end-time Bride is already in the rapture, we turn our eyes to I Thessalonians 4:14-16, and exclaim with Brother Branham, "Jesus comes from heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His saints, and the Bible said that the heavens was empty for the space of a half hour" (The Sardisean Church Age, p. 348:96). And He has, and they are!

"Behold, God's dwelling place is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be with them, and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there will be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things have passed away". nl696.htm

'Muhammad': Regeh Omaar's Fundamental Flaw

July 12, 2011 — This is a refutation from the Rev. Dr. Alan Clifford of BBC2's predictably biased July 11 documentary on Mohammed, Part 1 of 3.

"Among the several flaws in Rageh Omaar's presentation is the fundamental claim that illiterate Muhammad could not have accessed Jewish, Christian and other supposed sources for the text of the Qur'an. However, what he couldn't read he heard well with his ears. His several acquaintances provided a range of material eventually reflected in the Qur'anic text. This includes ancient Arabic, Zoroastrian and Hindu beliefs as well as Jewish and sub-Christian ideas. This is irrefutable, as the scholarly demonstration of the Rev. W. St Clair-Tisdall, MA proved long ago in his book, "Sources of Islam".

In short, since the Qur'an's teaching is traceable to pre-6th century systems of thought, the claim that it came 'direct from heaven' simply falls to the ground. Hence, what is good in the Qur'an is not original, and what is original is not good. The early 'revelation' that there should be 'no compulsion in religion' was eventually abrogated in favour of the violent and bloody revelations which directed Islam's later conquests.

Of this we may be totally sure: Islam is not a religion of peace and its origins are certainly not divine: Dr. Alan C. Clifford.

Comment: The US has spent 700,000,000 taxpayer dollars refurbishing foreign mosques! Brother Branham said, "We had a great nation; but she is now rottening and crumbling and shaking and giving away, and trying to tax people to get money to send over yonder to buy friendship with our enemies. They're throwing it back in our face. One world war, two world wars, and still moving on to a third one" (This Day, this Scripture is Fulfilled, p. 16:131-132).

Two Examples of Fascism run by Banks

July 18, 2011 — The United States and other countries of the world are becoming more fascist as New World Order globalists rush to complete their fascist world government by late 2012. According to Italy's former fascist dictator and MI5 asset, Benito Mussolini, "fascism should rightly be called corporatism, as it is the merger of corporate and government power." The following examples demonstrate fascism/corporatism within the banking structure of the United States. . .

JP Morgan and Bank of America profit from government assistance programs. The Federal Reserve is a private bank that loans money to the government, thereby enslaving its citizens with the national debt. These two examples of fascism in the United States banking structure form the basis for ushering in the New World Order. . . Full story:

Agenda 21.

July 2, 2011 — President Barack Obama has taken the next step to bring America under United Nations 'Agenda 21' tyranny. Obama signed Executive Order 13575 which will seize greater power over food and energy in rural areas across our once great, and once free nation. The President created the 'White House Rural Council' to 'make sure we're working across government to strengthen rural communities and promote economic growth'. . .

Source of Terror Threat is UK Govt: Police Principal Intelligence Analyst

July 9, 2011 — In 2010, one week before the 5th anniversary of 7/7, Tony Farrell (who had never previously doubted government versions of events) stumbled across '9/11 Truth' material on the web. Like so many millions before him, he was shocked to the core by this experience. He quickly realised that there was a great mass of evidence relating to 9/11 kept hidden by the mainstream media. As a Christian, Tony consulted his church minister, who suggested that he consider whether the same might be true for the London 7/7 bombings?

Something he had not suspected 'in his wildest dreams' then started to unfold. After reading much of the available but publicly-unreported witness statements and other evidence relating to 7/7, Tony found that he could only conclude that the official 7/7 narrative was 'a monstrous lie.' Instead of the official 'suicide bombers' narrative, which he and all of his colleagues had believed without question, he realised that the weight of evidence strongly points far more towards 7/7 being an event stage-managed by British intelligence . . .

NASA Solar Cycle Prediction

July 20, 2011 — The current prediction for Sunspot Cycle 24 gives a smoothed sunspot number maximum of about 69 in June of 2013. We are currently over two and a half years into Cycle 24. Three consecutive months with average daily sunspot numbers above 40 has raised the predicted maximum above the 64.2 for the Cycle 14 maximum in 1907. The predicted size would make this the smallest sunspot cycle in over 100 years.

Predicting the behavior of a sunspot cycle is fairly reliable once the cycle is well underway (about 3 years after the minimum in sunspot number occurs [see Hathaway, Wilson, and Reichmann Solar Physics; 151, 177 (1994)]). Prior to that time the predictions are less reliable but nonetheless equally as important. Planning for satellite orbits and space missions often require knowledge of solar activity levels years in advance. . . Full story:

Comment: Of four BIG LIES about "Carbon Pollution," Lie No. 4 is the biggest lie of all–"A tax on carbon dioxide is needed to reduce pollution and cool the planet." Decades of extreme cold weather always follow these hibernations of the Sun as the research shows going back 1,200 years or more. This next one has begun right on schedule, just as I predicted. We should therefore expect the same climate change to a long cold period just like it has done before. The last three record cold and long winters around the globe along with the lack of growth in the planet's average temperature for the past twelve years, and a new long term downward trend in global temperatures are solid enough signals to prove that global warming ended as and when I predicted and that the Earth is rapidly proceeding into a long cold era.

Andrew Bolt interviews Professor Richard Lindzen on the Climate change HOAX and scam! Carbon Sunday, 10th July 2011 was the start of the real Carbon War in Australia. Written in bureaucratic jargon, the 1967 "Report from Iron Mountain on the Possibility and Desirability of Peace" termed ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION "promising" as an "apparent" species threat: "But from present indications it will be a generation to a generation-and-a-half before environmental pollution, however severe, will be sufficiently menacing, on a global scale, to offer a possible BASIS for a solution. . . It may be, for instance, that gross pollution of the environment can eventually replace the possibility of mass destruction by nuclear weapons as the principal 'apparent' threat to the survival of the species."

SIS on Trail of Suspected Israeli Spies

July 20, 2011 — The police national computer has been under scrutiny in the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquake in February because of fears Israeli agents loaded software into the system that would allow backdoor access to highly sensitive intelligence files. [As the SIS officer explained, it would take only moments for a USB drive to be inserted in a police computer terminal and load it with a program allowing remote backdoor access. . . The SIS officer said the agency was also aware of a comment posted on the website of the Russian newspaper Pravda that the Christchurch earthquake had disrupted an Israeli spy base in the city]. . .

Three Israelis were among 181 people who died when the earthquake destroyed most of Christchurch's central business district on February 22. One was found to be carrying at least five passports. An unaccredited Israeli search and rescue squad was later confronted by armed New Zealand officers and removed from the sealed-off "red zone". . . The response of the Israeli government to the three deaths appears extraordinary. In the hours after the 6.3 quake struck [Jewish] Prime Minister John Key fielded the first of four calls that day from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Israel's Ambassador in the South Pacific, Shemi Tzur . . . booked flights to Christchurch, where he visited the morgue. Israel's civil defense chief left Israel for Christchurch. A complete Israeli urban search and rescue squad was assembled and flown to Christchurch, arriving about the same time as . . . Three people who had smashed their way out of a van crushed by a concrete pillar in the central city, leaving a fourth person dead in the vehicle, arrived back in Israel. . .

Pray for Libya

July 19, 2011 — [Dastardly] Western powers and certainly Western media are working overtime to suppress the fact that Libyans themselves do not share this view of their leader. . . are Libyans showing their support? To NATO? Certainly not: this is Libya on the ground. . . the question of being "pro-Gadhafi" or "anti-Gadhafi" is irrelevant when it comes to supporting Libya and Libyans, and to understanding what these NATO missions are accomplishing is the personification of cruelty, injustice and ultimate greed: "Libya is a Rich Man's War!"

"Humanitarian war" is an oxymoron of the utmost proportions. Western military and imperial powers need to stop playing their high-stakes PR game of "monkey-in-the-middle," pitting themselves as self-appointed "saviours" to the Libyan people against their heavily propagandized version of Gaddafi as the universal "evil-doer". . . Full story:

Comment: For the International Criminal Court, whose "arrest warrant" for Libyan leader Moammar Qaddafi was soundly rejected by the 53-member African Union, their last shred of self-proclaimed credibility has been rendered moot! Colonel Gadaffi is a noble servant loved by his people. The alien-controlled US government on the other hand is ignoble, and the apostate (once) Protestant United States is the image to the Judaeo-Catholic beast that will kill all who refuse to serve or receive Rome's trinitarian doctrine which is the "mark of the beast" (Revelation 13:15-18). As Plato said, "One of the penalties of not participating in politics is that you will be governed by your inferiors".

Brother Branham said, "This America is the prostitute of the nations. That's exactly what she is, and she's going to be worse than ever now. She's coming to her end! The Bible speaks of her doom, tells how she's going to be. America: lowdown, rotten, filthy, no good. That's exactly right, She's been a great nation. She's carried the Gospel message. What makes her the way she is? Because she's turned down the Gospel Message, and rejected the Truth. She's horrible. She's got it coming, don't worry. I seen it in the vision as THUS SAITH THE LORD! It's coming. She's going to pay for her sins"  (Revelation, Chapter Four, January 8, 1961, p. 661:87-88; Revelation 3:17).

"It's a million miles from being a Christian country. I don't even pray for it. How can I pray for it, and it won't repent under the mighty powers of God demonstrated before it, and denying, and closing the doors to it, and walking away? . . . now she's going to sink. Just watch what happens" (Trying to do God a Service without being the Will of God, p. 23: 136).

Which Vaccines might be produced using Aborted Fetal Cell Lines?

July 10, 2011 — "An additional increased spike in incidence of autism occurred in 1995 when the chicken pox vaccine was grown in human fetal tissue". . . it wasn't disclosed on any consent form. Most people are unaware that human cell cultures derived from aborted human fetuses have been used extensively in vaccine production for decades. . . the ethics of nondisclosure are reprehensible. . . two primary cell cultures that have been growing in labs for more than 35 years and have been used to prepare hundreds of millions of doses of vaccines:

1. WI-38: Originating in the US in 1961, this line came from the lung cells of an intentionally aborted female human fetus of 3 months gestation.

2. MRC-5: Originating in the UK in 1966, this line was derived from the lung cells of an intentionally aborted 14-week-old male human fetus. . . PepsiCo, Kraft Foods, and Nestle are reported to have partnered with a biotech firm called Senomyx, which uses human embryonic kidney cells taken from an electively aborted fetus (HEK 293) in their product testing to find flavors that will positively affect human taste receptors.

When this news leaked, Campbell soup responded to an outraged public by severing all ties with Senomyx. However, PepsiCo has maintained their relationship with the company, saying the collaboration is necessary for creating low-calorie, tasty products for their consumers. . . Cosmetics are similarly produced from aborted fetal tissue cell lines. . .

Zechariah's First and Second Visions

Pharisaism is Judaism: before the apostle and prophet Paul was born-again he was a fanatical Pharisee trying to do God a service without it being His will. Acts 9:1-5, "Still breathing out threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, Saul went to the high priest requesting of him letters to synagogues at Damascus, that if he found any Christian men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. [The euphemistic subterfuge Birkat Ha-Minim "blessing" the Heretics: "let there be no hope for the wicked and for Christians"—a pattern for Revelation 13:15-18]".

"But as he was nearing Damascus, suddenly a brilliant Light from heaven encircled him! He fell to the ground and heard a Voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me? And he said, Who are you, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom you persecute: it is hard for you to kick against the pricks".

One who persecutes God's elect is persecuting God Himself and will be judged; as He told Abraham, "I will bless those who bless you, and curse him who curses you: and in you shall all Gentile nations [of Adam's race] be blessed" (Genesis 12:3).  Paul would see that "God and the soul that is joined together with God is One Spirit"  (I Corinthians 6:17) for Abraham's Seed was Jesus Messiah so Christians are Abraham's seed by the new birth which is the baptism with the Holy Ghost (Genesis 22:18; Galatians 3:26-29), thus he who blesses us will be blessed and he who curses us will be cursed.

Brother Branham said, "Now we can see why there were two vines, one true and one false, [a tiny true Church, and an immense false church (Luke 12:32)]. Now we can see why Abraham had two sons, one after the flesh (who persecuted Isaac) and one after the promise. Now we can see how that out of the same parents two boys came forth as twins, one knowing and loving the things of God, and the other knowing much of the same truth, but not of the same Spirit, and hence persecuted the child that was elect. God did not reprobate for the sake of reprobation. He reprobated for the sake of the elect. ELECT CANNOT persecute elect. ELECT CANNOT harm elect. It is the reprobates that persecute and destroy the elect. Oh, those reprobates are religious. They are smart. They are of the Cain line, the serpent seed. They build their Babels, they build their cities, they build their empires, and all the while calling on God. They hate the true seed, and they will do all they can, (even in the Name of the Lord) to destroy God's elect ones. But they are needed. "What is the chaff to the wheat?" No chaff, no wheat. But at the end, what happens to the chaff? It is burned with fire unquenchable. And the wheat? Where is it? It is gathered in His garner. It is where He is."

"Oh elect of God, beware. Study closely. Be careful. Work out your salvation with fear and trembling. Rely upon God and be strong in His might. Your adversary, the Devil, is even now going about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. Watch unto prayer and be steadfast. This is the end time. Both the true and false vine are coming into maturity, but before the wheat matures, those ripened tares must be bound for the burning. See, they are all joining the World Council of Churches. That is the binding. Soon the garnering of the wheat will come. But right now the two spirits are at work in two vines. Come out from among the tares. Start to overcome that you may be considered praiseworthy for your Lord, and fit to reign and rule with Him" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 359:1-2).

We aspire to be found praiseworthy as workmen with no cause to be ashamed, and having rightly divided the Message of Truth our first conviction on hearing and believing God's Word is a need to repent of our shortcomings and past unbelief. After the Judahites had returned from exile and rebuilt Jerusalem and its walls, the Lord said through His prophet Haggai, you have resettled in straitened circumstances: restore My Temple and I will bless you with good seasons and bountiful harvests. Two months later His prophet Zechariah called Judah to repentance: "The Lord was fervently angry with your fathers [evinced in the destruction of their city, His Temple, and their captivity]. Thus says the Lord of hosts; return to Me, and [as a consequence] I will return to you. Do be not like your fathers [who were refractory], to whom the former prophets loudly proclaimed: Thus says the Lord of hosts, return from your evil ways and from your evil deeds: but they did not hear, or heed Me, says the Lord."

"Your fathers perished [as foretold and their fate ought to warn you]. [I grant] you may say, the prophets are also dead; but My Word endures so beware lest you share their fate. My Words and My statutes overtook and punished your fathers so they repented and said, As the Lord of hosts decreed to do to us for our evil ways and deeds, so has He dealt with us"
(Zechariah 1:2-6).

The Church Age fathers and our prophet William Branham are long dead, but his Words will overtake us for good or evil, so let us "work the works of God while it is day: because night comes at the close of the Gentle dispensation when no man can work." Let us not, like Saul before his conversion "kick against the pricks and persecute Christ" by getting out of step with the Message of the hour. Ours is not religion, habit and duty, but the heartfelt depth of faith in action following the Spirit of Truth who guides us into all truth and shows us things to come. Thus there is little purpose in reading these Newsletters unless your heart is right with God as you will grieve the Holy Spirit.

The foundation of Christ's true Church has always been a clear revelation of the present Truth followed by obedience not sacrifice, which is for disobedience. Jesus' nine beatitudes of Matthew 5:3-12 invite us to look into our own heart and examine our attitudes that we may be blessed like the Judahites when they paid heed to Haggai, sanctified themselves and set to the work so that in four years the House of God was rebuilt (Ezra 6:15). I find this interesting because about four years after Israel's twelve tribes return to the land of the Covenant the Millennium Temple which is the 144,000 elect Israelites themselves will be complete, and they will seal their testimony in Judaeo-Roman Catholic martyrdom when they denounce her pagan trinity of gods.

The visions of Haggai and Zechariah his contemporary encompass both the re-construction of King Solomon's Temple by Zerubbabel and the re-instruction of the Millennium Temple by "the two anointed ones who stand by the Lord of all the Earth" for the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel. These will be the Hebrew (NOT Jewish) prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 endued with the Spirit and power that rested upon Moses and Elijah as they call to remembrance the Law of Moses for all Israel with its statutes and judgments, and demonstrate by expounding the prophecies of Scripture fulfilled over 2,000 years of the Gentile dispensation that the Law was but "a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, [as the Law] can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereto perfect" (Malachi 4:4; Hebrews 10:1). These prophets will introduce Jesus Messiah manifest in glorified flesh whose throne and dominion is on Earth, while as the eternal Spirit God's throne is in heaven (Isaiah 66:1; Revelation 3:21).

Much understanding of Zechariah is gained from the parallel passages of his predecessors prior to the Captivity, removing any uncertainty found in his words, for a good deal of what was future to them is to Zechariah, being a prophet of the restoration like Brother Branham (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11) and Israel's two witnesses (Malachi 4:4; Acts 3:21-23), either past or present. So it is not possible to explain any of the glowing delineations of Zechariah and Haggai concerning a future state of Israel's deliverance and enlargement as fulfilled in the return from Babylon, for they pertain to the Millennium. However their immediate design was to encourage the people and their religious and civil leaders, Joshua and Zerubbabel, in their work of rebuilding the temple after the interruption caused by the Samaritans.

As the Lord Jesus spoke to Brother Branham one Sunday morning in June, 1933 and said that the coming of the Lord was drawing nigh but that before He came seven major events would transpire and revealed seven major continuous visions; in the night of February 15, 519BC He revealed nine visions to Zechariah, each closely connected and revealing an orderly progress in the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel (Zechariah 1:7 – 6:15). Both our Lord Jesus Christ and Brother Branham (who I believe is the interpreting angel of Revelation 1:1 and Zechariah 1:9) appear to and speak with Zechariah in his visions as they appeared to and spoke with John on the Island of Patmos. After His earthly work the mystery of God was shown to Jesus who gave it to one man, William Branham, after the close of the Seventh Church Age (Matthew 24:36; Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 1:1; 10:4-7); like John, Daniel, and Ezekiel, Zechariah was caught up in the Spirit into the day of the Lord, and looking back through time I understand he saw and heard Brother Branham reveal elements of "things that are to be".

The first vision
sets forth the evident need of divine intervention in behalf of the people with the strong assurance that it shall be vouchsafed. The second indicates one result of this intervention will be to drive away Israel's foes. The third promise, great enlargement and absolute security in the millennium under Messiah. The fourth exhibits the remission of sin, the cause of all the previous troubles, through Christ's vicarious death. The fifth is a counterpart to the fourth by promising the positive communication of God's Spirit and grace which secure sanctification as well as justification. The sixth is the curse on a scroll, recorded against sin and flying over Judah and ultimately the whole earth; this will extirpate the impenitent by the fearful curse of God upon all sinners of whatever class. The seventh, the woman in the ephah signifies wickedness and Babylonian idolatry which will cease from the elect Israelites in the day of the Lord. The eighth shows the accomplishment of everything promised by the first vision. The executors of God's judgment go forth from Jerusalem's sanctified mountains of brass upon the heathen persecutors and do not stay their hands until God's Spirit is completely satisfied. The ninth vision shows the union of the Priesthood and Kingship in Jesus Messiah, and reveals the conversion of Gentile Church in the days of the Branch to His Wife, Israel's Queen.

The First Vision

Zechariah 1:8-17, "I received a vision at night wherein I saw a Man mounted upon a red horse that was standing among the myrtle trees in the glen; and behind Him were bay, tawny, and white horses. I asked, what are these my lord? And the angel that talked with me said, I will show you what these are. And the Man who stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These are those whom the Lord sent to patrol the earth. And the [riders] answered the Angel of the Lord who was standing among the myrtle trees, We have patrolled the earth, and the whole earth remains at rest. Then the Angel of the Lord answered and said, O Lord of hosts, how long will you not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which you have had indignation these seventy years"?

"And the Lord answered with gracious and comfortable words to the angel who talked with me. Then the angel that was speaking with me said, Publicly proclaim, Thus says the Lord of hosts; I am exceedingly jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion, and I am vehemently displeased with the nations that are at ease: for while I was but a little displeased they afflicted them beyond My intentions. Therefore thus says the Lord; I have returned to Jerusalem with compassion: My house shall be rebuilt, says the Lord of hosts, and the measuring line shall be stretched out over Jerusalem. Proclaim moreover, Thus says the Lord of hosts; through prosperity My cities will be spread abroad; and the Lord will once more comfort Zion, and again choose Jerusalem. Again loudly proclaim, Thus says the Lord of hosts: My cities shall again overflow with prosperity, and the Lord will once again comfort Zion and again choose Jerusalem".

The Man riding the red horse in Zechariah 1:8, 10 and 12 is "the Angel of the Covenant" incarnate in created flesh as when He appeared to Abraham (Genesis 18:1) and to Hagar (Genesis 16:7), wrestled Jacob (Genesis 32:24) and appeared to Gideon (Judges 6:11-24). Genesis 22:11, Exodus 3:2, Malachi 3:1 and many other Scriptures reveal God manifest in One created Man before His incarnation in the virgin-born Jesus Christ (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; I Timothy 3:16). This confirms Matthew 24:36, "No man, not the angels of heaven, only My Father knows the day and hour of the end of the world [and My second 'erchomai' return]".

The colour of the horse symbolizes the purpose of its Rider, namely wrath and bloodshed to be inflicted on the foes of Israel (as Satan, the rider of the red horse in Revelation 6:4 slaughtered the saints from Pentecost to Pergamos). The myrtle that once grew on the hills about Jerusalem and on the Mount of Olives hereafter grows in what was a wilderness. Not stately like the cedar, the lowly though fragrant myrtle signifies the Judahites in their affliction as a result of the Captivity (Isaiah 41:19; 55:13). The Angel of the Lord standing among them in the depression intercedes with Jehovah for Israel and is a guarantee for her safety, lowly though she now is. Behind the first Rider are horsemen sent to exact judgment against the nations, their ultimate victory over the world indicated by the rearguard of white horses (Revelation 19:11-14).

The riders' report that the Gentile world is dwelling in serene repose untroubled by any foe is disturbingly contrary to Judah's expectation of a massive convulsion of nature based on Haggai 2:6-7, "Thus says the Lord of hosts; Once more, in a little while, I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land; and I will shake all nations, and the [Messiah] Desire of all nations will come: and I will fill this house with glory, says the Lord of hosts." But of course the vision was shut up and sealed to the close of the Laodicean Church Age when its mystery would be revealed through the angel to the Seventh Church Age (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4-7).

Neither the Judahites nor the riders in judgment foresaw the Gentile dispensation and Christ's 'parousia' Coming to us before Haggai's earthquakes; or Christ's 'parousia' to Israel before His physical return with the glorified saints of all Ages to restore the Kingdom to Israel. They could not contemplate Israel remaining under Gentile dominion—as it is today—from Nebuchadnezzar's conquest to the consummation of life (Daniel 9:27), or imagine that the sixfold purpose of Gabriel's visit to Daniel would remain unfulfilled until almost 2,600 years later when Israel—all 144,000 of them—is born-again in one day then martyred for their Christian faith by the reprobate church (Matthew 27:25; Revelation 6:13; 7:1-8; 14 and 15).

Peace in the world means persecution for the Israelites. I Thessalonians 5:3, "When they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." Brother Branham said, "I've sent a persecution here and a persecution there, and I've run the Jews [he means Israelites] and drove them as hard as I could. And they've drove back in. Many Jews in the United States (which they won't escape from) has already received the Holy Ghost. But I've got all of the hundred and forty-four thousand [Israelites] standing there [in Israel] that's going to receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost" (COD, p. 97:235). The announcement of peace will herald Daniel's Seventieth Week, "the time of Jacob's trouble" and the great tribulation (Jeremiah 30:7; Isaiah 14).

The Angel of the Lord intercedes; asking a question knowing it will bring consolation and hope to the Judahites when the guiding angel, whom I believe is Brother Branham, communicates the answer to Zechariah. "How long will you have no mercy on Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah"? The seventy years of the desolations of Judah (Jeremiah 25:12; Daniel 9:2) are past, and although the people have been restored, the population was small, the land largely a waste, they were still in a depressed state, and there was no sign of the violent convulsions of nature expected upon the heathen world.

They were anticipating the restoration of the Kingdom, little realizing that in 500 years Israel would murder her Messiah and suffer seven times more for her sin through 2,000 years of the Gentile dispensation. That is "How long"! Then grace will end for the world as when "God's voice shook the earth [after Israel went from grace to the Law]: now He has promised [in Haggai], Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, "Yet once more," signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made [creeds, catechisms, and ritual], that those things which cannot be shaken [faith in His unfailing promises] may remain. Since we have a Kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and awe: for our God is a consuming Fire" (Hebrews 12:26-28; Daniel 2:44; Haggai 2:5-9).

So as to be heard clearly by all the communicating angel is ordered to pronounce the immutable "THUS SAITH THE LORD, I am jealous for Jerusalem, and for Zion. And I burn with vehement anger at the heathen in their state of carnal security, overconfident in their power and prosperity, but mainly because they have exceeded the chastisement I ordered upon Judah in love with a view to correction, to evil-entreating them for their own pleasure." Consequently the Lord declares He has returned to Jerusalem with mercies. All hindrances will be removed, the Temple will be restored, and the whole city shall pass under the surveyor's measuring line for building. Furthermore the communicating angel is commanded to publicly proclaim "THUS SAITH THE LORD, the prosperity shall overflow to the other cities throughout Judah in assurance God has by no means renounced His original purpose in choosing Jerusalem for His habitation".

When the red horses returned from the conquest of Babylon the Judahites had "rest" under the Medo-Persians and under the succeeding Greek empire which was also kindly disposed. And did you notice a future "measuring" foreshadowed in Verses 16 and 17? The rod of the Message of the two prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11:1-4 will separate 144,000 elect Israelites from "those who worship in the Sanctuary of the Temple" to "raise up children to Abraham" and "lively stones" for His Millennium Temple.

The objective of this first vision was to demonstrate that God's love is elective love and to encourage the dispirited Judahites that although there was no present appearance of the blessings promised in Haggai 2, yet these blessings were vouchsafed. Zechariah revealed the riders of God's righteous judgments on the ungodly nations, and like his predecessors, he looks down the whole vista of the future and outlines landmarks that do not exhaust the prophecy in one period but wrap up long cycles of historical development in terse, pregnant sentences.

The Second Vision

Zechariah 1:18-21, "[Having sunk down in meditation after seeing my first vision] I raised my eyes and saw four horns, and I asked the angel who was speaking with me, What are these? And he answered, These are the horns that have [past tense] scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem."

"Then the Lord showed me four craftsmen [skilful destroyers or warriors], and I said, What are these coming to do? He answered, These are the horns which have scattered Judah to such extent that no one could lift up his head, but these [skilful destroyers] have come to rout them and to cast down the horns of the Gentiles, who lifted up their horn against the land of Judah to scatter it".

image of Nebuchadnezzar's dreamA horn signifies a kingdom or national power and these four horns represent four successive Gentile world empires God would raise up to chastise and discipline the Israelites through "the times of the Gentiles" from Judah's defeat by Nebuchadnezzar in 605BC to the consummation of life early in our twenty-first century (Luke 21:24; Daniel 9:27; Hosea 6:1-3). God represented the four horns to Nebuchadnezzar in the interpretation of his dream in Daniel 2 (explained in chapters 7 to 12 and Revelation 17). The four skilful destroyers or warriors sent to rout and cast out the four horns are the succeeding three horns, while the fourth is a "Stone cut out of the mountain without hands that will smite the image in the days of the ten toes of the feet that mingle themselves with the seed of men ["as it was in the days of Noah" (Matthew 24:37; Genesis 6:1-4)]. In the days of these ten kingdoms the God of heaven will set up a Kingdom that will never be destroyed, but will break in pieces and consume them all, and it shall stand for ever" (Daniel 2:42-45).

This unfolds the first vision in which the Lord is shown with the Medes and Persians, having taken the Babylonian empire and slain King Belshazzar, at rest among the myrtle trees on bloodied war horses. "God's anointed shepherd, King Cyrus of Persia" extended this rest to the Judeans as prophesied two hundred years beforehand (Isaiah 44:28; 45:1). Behind them in the vision, that is to say in the future, stand three hosts of skilful destroyers or warriors who will rout and cast out the remainder of the enemies of God and Israel: Greeks, Romans, and the Stone cut out of the mountain without hands which answers to the white horses of the first vision and the Rider and His followers on white horses in the vision of Revelation 19:11-21 (where Brother Branham makes another appearance):

"I . . . . (insert your name here, because throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ's end-time Bride, the only group to whom the Message of the angel, Brother Branham, is revealed) . . . . saw heaven opened, and beheld a white horse whose Rider is called Faithful and True; in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of Fire, and on His head are many crowns with a Name inscribed which no one [of worldly understanding] knows. He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His Name is called The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, clad in fine linen, white and pure, followed Him upon white horses. Out of His mouth issues a sharp Sword with which to smite the nations: and He will rule them with a rod of iron [at the White Throne Judgment]: and He treads the winepress of the furious wrath God Almighty. On His robe and on His thigh He has a Name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS."

In Revelation 6:8 Satan had the name "Death" wrote on him; Christ's got Life wrote on Him. Those with Him are on white horses also, and they are called "the chosen before the foundation of the world." Amen. And they are faithful to the Word. Amen. Whew, I like that one. Called "chosen before the foundation of the world" and then faithful to the Word by their choosing, all stimulated with new wine and oil just riding right along, coming down to meet Him" (William Branham, The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 322:5; John 6:63).

"Then I saw an angel standing in the Sun; and he proclaimed with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in midheaven, Come gather for the great supper of God; to feast on the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, small and great."

[This angel standing in the Light of "the Sun of righteousness with healing [resurrection and translation power] in his beams" (Malachi 4:2) is Brother Branham whose ministry revealed "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever" (Hebrews 13:8), doing the SAME miracles and "discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart . . . as it was in the days of Lot" (Hebrews 4:12; Luke 17:28-30; Genesis 18)—which was the LAST sign Jesus promised we Gentiles before the close of our dispensation. Thus he was "the firstfruit of those who are Christs at His 'parousia' Coming . . . and if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy: and if the Root is holy, so are the branches [that's you and me]" (I Corinthians 15:23; Romans 11:16).

This vision of the "angel standing in the Sun" is the end-time equivalent of the vision of Revelation 12:1 which portrayed the elect Israelites who constituted the inaugural saints of the New Testament Church having crossed over from the Law into grace. The Law represented by the Moon which reflects the light of the Sun as "a shadow of good things to come," is now under her feet and the true Church is crowned with apostolic faith signified by twelve stars over her head. Stars reflect the Light of the Sun in its absence and the Church is clothed in the Light of the ascended S_O_N.

The Elijah of I Kings 18 slew the prophets of Baal and the enemies of God and Israel in time of the latter rain following the evening sacrifice in the days of King Ahab and his domineering pagan Queen, Jezebel. He prophesied: "dogs will lick Ahab's blood. . . and eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel; the members of your family who die in the city will be eaten by dogs, and those who die in the country will be eaten by vultures" (I Kings 21:17-26). This established the type for Revelation 19:17 which foretells it will be the prophetic ministry of William Branham—Matthew 25:6, I Thessalonians 4:16, Revelation 14:9-11 and 18:1-3—the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6, that invites the birds and beasts to eat the sacrifice of the enemies of God and Israel in the days of the latter rain after their evening sacrifice is received. The "Ahab" of today is the apostate United States (and her allies) who will shortly unite with that dominating woman Jezebel, "MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS [her (once) Protestant daughter churches (Revelation 2:20-24)] AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH [like Islam]." As Daniel and Jesus foretold, the Judaeo-Roman Catholic false church will rule the world in league with the blooded military of the (once) Protestant United States of America, killing all recalcitrants and dissenters (Daniel 7:15-27; Revelation 17:1-6; 13:15-18).

And you want to be a Roman Catholic??? This Scripture speaks of Armageddon and the consummation of life].

"Then I saw the beast [Rome and reprobate humanity] and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered to make war against [Jesus Christ "whose Name is called The Word of God"], the One mounted on the horse, and against His army. And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet [or pope] who wrought miracles in his presence, by means of which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast [trinitarian worship] and those who worshipped his image [the (once) Protestant churches]. These two were cast alive into the lake of Fire burning with brimstone. And the rest [of humanity] were slain with the Sword that issued from the mouth of the One mounted on the horse. And all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh".

God called Nebuchadnezzar "My servant" (Jeremiah 27:6) and sent him to chastise blasphemous Judah when it followed the Northern Tribes into trinitarian worship. His grandson the secondary king Belshazzar set Eastern propriety at naught, introducing women, even concubines and sensuality at his feast, and whose crowning guilt was to profane the vessels of God's Temple to be instruments of revelry to himself, his princes, wives and concubines, drinking out of them in honour of his gods, thus persecuting Jesus. To mark the inseparable connection of sin and punishment "the same hour" God wrote his doom on the wall and "skilful destroyers" of the Medes and Persians took the kingdom and slew Belshazzar (Daniel 5; I Thessalonians 5:3-7).

"Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem" were already scattered and Judah was a province of Persia at the time of Zechariah's vision. Israel is mentioned not to indicate the Northern Kingdom, which God dispersed two centuries earlier, but to identify those of the restoration as people of the Covenant. It was Persia, now known as Iran, that released the Judahites, returned the Temple treasures that had been carried to Babylon, and helped fund the restoration of God's Temple. This is of no consequence to the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews in their enmity against the genuine Semitic Iranians (Genesis 3:15). Alexander's Greek empire succeeded the Medo-Persians and was in its turn supplanted by Imperial Rome. Her political and military power waned but "her deadly wound was healed" (Revelation 13:3) when Emperor Constantine united the Roman state with the remnants of the apostate First Church of Rome established by the apostles Junius and Andronicus. Constantine backed the union by force and the spirit that motivated pagan Rome now inspires false Christian Rome. The fourth empire never went out of existence; it just changed in its outer texture. Papal false Christian Rome now controls by religion even more ably than when pagan Imperial Rome controlled by the pure iron of force.

After the close of the Gentile dispensation the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and her (once) Protestant daughters will reunite with the state—the apostate United States (and other colonies of 'the City of London')—which is "the image unto the beast" of Imperial Rome. Whereas God raised up Nebuchadnezzar to destroy Judah, He has raised Judaeo-Communism to destroy the false church and the United States. This will precipitate Armageddon and the consummation of Life.

The four horns have scattered the Israelites, who must not be confused with their impersonators, the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Edomite and Khazar Jews of Europe and America. Scripture informs us all twelve tribes dwell primarily in the environs of the Muslim lands of the ancient Assyrian empire (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:14; 27:13; 49:17; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 37:14; 39:27; Micah 5:3; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31; Revelation 12:14, etc,). One should never conflate Jews with the descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob: the Bible, history, and their most eminent scholars prove that "Jew" is a modern word found in no Bible prior to the latter half of the eighteenth century. Its meaning is contrary to the two words it has replaced, and Jews are seldom Judahites, Judeans, or even a Semitic people.

This is confirmed by Matthew 24:31. After the close of the Gentile dispensation "The Son of man will send His angels [the Hebrew prophets (of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11)] with the great sound of the [Seventh] Trumpet (I Thessalonians 4:16; I Corinthians 15:52), and they will gather together His [144,000] elect from the four winds [the war and strife that have scattered them] from one end of heaven to the other [under the dominion of the four Gentile world powers]." Contrary to the understanding of the majority of believers in the circle of this Message, the Israelites have NOT yet been "gathered together" to the land of the Covenant "for fear of the Jews." According to Jesus in Matthew and the Scriptures delineated above they will not return until after the CLOSE of the Gentile dispensation.

Brother Branham said, "National force ["skilful destroyers"] put [the nation of] Israel in her homeland [whose citizens call themselves 'Israelis' because they know they are NOT Israelites but impersonators]. National force ["skilful destroyers"], will put the church in the World Council of Churches. But the power of God will put the people in the Bride. The world forces this way, and the world forces that way, but God forces upward, the Spirit of God, which is the Word of God—"My Word is Spirit and Life will put the Bride in her place, 'cause she'll recognize her position in the Word; then she's in Christ"—will put her in her place. No national force will do it. But the national force did drive Israel to the homeland. The national forces of the [Rockefellers'] Council of Churches will drive every organization into it, but the power of God will raise the Bride into glory, out of it" (Recognizing your day and its Message, p. 34:192; 1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3).

"We Jews, we are the Destroyers and will remain the Destroyers. Nothing you can do will meet our demands and needs. We will forever destroy because we want a world of our own" (Maurice Samuels, You Gentiles, p. 155; Benjamin Franklin; Genesis 3:15). These "skilful destroyers," of apostate (once) Christian nations are presently persecuting political Islam, forcing innocent people into World War III against political Zion with the objective of bringing both under submission to their god Lucifer's totalitarian one world government. I believe World War III has been ongoing at least since 9/11 but has not yet reached the "hot stage" which will be precipitated by the earthquakes prophesied by Haggai, Zechariah, Jesus Messiah and others, sinking Los Angeles, cleaving the Mount of Olives and demolishing the Dome of the Rock at the close of the Gentile dispensation and the start of Daniel's Seventieth Week. The military blueprint for this war was determined in 1871. After "the world sitteth still, and [is again] at rest" Rome will break her covenant with the self-styled Jewish banksters, then Judaeo-Communist Russia will annihilate both the United States and Vatican City State, and Armageddon will set in.

This vision carries forward the assurance given in the first vision by explaining the provision God has made for repelling the foes of elect Israelites of the Old Covenant—from the Captivity to the close of Daniel's Seventieth Week. Hebrews 10:30-31, "God has said, Vengeance belongs to Me, I will recompense, says the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge His people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God". nl695.htm
