May our Lord Jesus bless and strengthen you in His Word as together we study Zechariah 14 through the eyes of Isaiah, and unfold its hidden secrets that demonstrate the inerrancy of prophecy from Genesis to Revelation as He reveals "the things that shall be hereafter" the Seven Church Agesindeed all ages, and age itself. Understandings that lift us up to higher ground for rapturing revelation in the Capstone of the Pyramid formed by Christ's end-time Bride, which is Love. Jesus is making us perfect in God's own corrective love by faith in the fullness of His Word infusing us with us the Spirit of power and of a sound mind. Perfect faith is submission to a clear understanding of His revealed Word that annuls doubt, disallows torment caused by fear of things unknown, and will enable us to manifest that we are the Sons of God, passing through the barrier of our present three dimensions to eternity in the sixth dimension for the marriage supper of the Lamb.

End of the Christians in the Middle East
November 29, 2011 The victims of these supposedly "democratic" movements in Egypt, Libya, Syria, and previously Iraq are mainly Christians who absolutely do not share with enthusiasm the excitement of the Western establishment, America and the media. Prior to the overthrow of Saddam Hussein's regime by force more than 1.5 million Christians lived in Iraq and Deputy Prime Minister Tarek Aziz was a Christian. 25,000 Christians remain in "democratic" Iraqthe rest have fled or been killed.
Egypt is slowly approaching the same scenariothe army still holds, but after the introduction of "democracy" under the Muslim Brotherhood [MI6] there will be no trace of the Coptic Christians. Already they are attacked with impunity, despite the fact they account for 10 percent of the population.
The Christians in Syria are behind the wall of Bashar al-Assad . . . The question iswho is interested in the eradication of secular nationalist dictatorships? Who wants to lead the Islamists to victory under the guise of "democratization"? It may seem surprising, but it is the United States who gave the first signal by removing Nasserism from the Middle East, and attacking Iraq, the leading state ruled by secular nationalists. . . and earlier supported the Bosnian and Albanian Muslims in Europe against the Christian Serbs. There is no ambiguity in this game, America knew what it was doing and bred their own beasts the Taliban [CIA]. . .
But back to Nasserism. What is the Nasserism? This direction is named after its creator, Nasser (1918-1970), leader of Egypt. Encyclopedic record says, "Nasserism was a revolutionary nationalist and pan-Arab ideology combined in a vaguely defined socialism, often distinguishing it from the East and socialist thought, calling it "Arab socialism." Nasserism was a secular ideology that led to conflict with the emerging movements of Islamic radicalism, spoke in favor of modernization, industrialization and the abolition of traditional social divisions".
The destruction on Nasserism opened the way to Islamism. Al Qaeda [CIA] is one of the driving forces behind these revolutionary changes. Wherever brought to power by election, as in Palestine, Islamists can be controlled from countries where there are nurseries of Islamism, such as [Jewish] Saudi Arabia. The West will not have any impact on the course of events, nod or move a finger to defend attacked Christians. Hypocritically bombarded Libya "in defense of the civilian population," but we know that it was only to kill Gaddafi, one of the last Nasserists. When he was killed, NATO immediately acknowledged "the mission met its objectives". . . the victory of "democracy" in the Middle East means the annihilation of Christians living there. But if the West is demoralized and does not send their planes to defend Christians from extermination, and former Latin America did not lift a finger, Russia will soon recognize the impending fate of the Orthodox Church in the Holy Land.

Comment: The City of London is a sovereign nation that rules the UK, US, Australia and other colonies of her Empire. In partnership with Vatican City State she is bringing political Zion (a Rothschild creation) into controlled conflict against political Islam (a Vatican creation) in the Hegelian dialectic of World War III. Having achieved their unknown objective of establishing the sovereign state of modern Israel for the capitol of one world government these factions now represent a liability and must neutered or destroyed.
Simultaneously, blood Israelites, the mutual enemy of the Judaeo-Roman church and self-styled Jews (Genesis 27:39-41) are being annihilated, as are other mutual enemies, Christian sects who owe allegiance to rival popes: the Patriarch of the Assyrian Church, the Patriarch of Constantinople (Turkey), the Pope of Alexandria (Egypt) and Patriarch of All of Africa, the Patriarch of Antioch (Syria), the Patriarch of Greece, the Patriarch of Jerusalem (Israel, Palestine, Jordan and All Arabia), the Patriarch of All Bulgaria, the Patriarch of All Georgia, the Serbian Patriarch, the Patriarch of Kiev and Ukraine, the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, the Patriarch of All Romania, the Supreme Patriarch of the Armenian Apostolic Church and the head of the Armenian Apostolic Church.
NATO Members, Israel and the colonies of 'the City' are responsible for genocide, rape, pillage, looting"whatever it takes" to bring the world under submission to what will be Lucifer's totalitarian one world government. Anyone with an ounce of the Holy Spirit can see the United States is forcing the realization of Ezekiel 38 and 39, and her own annihilation.
Please read the third comment on this Article and the .pdf file, (both are in English). We have mentioned this situation in previous Newsletters, and brethren familiar with the prophecy concerning Rome's refinancing of the US dollar with gold backing will understand the behind the scenes activity described in this file, and how 'the City' has deployed her colonial troops to execute the Jews' Yinon Plan.
World War III: The Launching of a Preemptive Nuclear War against Iran
December 4, 2011 The launching of an outright war using nuclear warheads against Iran has been on the active drawing board of the Pentagon since 2005. If such a war were to be launched, the entire Middle East Central Asia region would flare up. Humanity would be precipitated into a World War III Scenario.
World War III is not front-page news; mainstream media has excluded in-depth analysis and debate on the implications of these war plans. The onslaught of World War III, were it to be carried out, would be casually described as a "no-fly zone," an operation under NATO's "Responsibility to Protect" (R2P) with minimal "collateral damage" or a "limited" punitive bombing against specific military targets, all of which purport to support "Global Security" as well as "democracy" and human rights in the targeted country.
Public opinion is largely unaware of the grave implications of these war plans, which contemplate the use of nuclear weapons, ironically in retaliation to Iran's nonexistent nuclear weapons program. Moreover, 21st Century military technology is at an advanced stage of development combining an array of sophisticated weapons systems. We are at the crossroads of the most serious crisis in World history. . . According to a 2003 Senate decision, the new generation of tactical nuclear weapons or "low yield" "mini-nukes", with an explosive capacity of up to 6 times a Hiroshima bomb, are now considered "safe for civilians" because the explosion is underground. . .

US Hypersonic Weapon can hit any Target on Earth in 30 Minutes
November 19, 2011 The Advanced Hypersonic Weapon (AHW), which travels five times the speed of sound, was successfully tested yesterday. It was launched by rocket from Hawaii at 11.30am, glided south westwards through the upper atmosphere over the Pacific at 'hypersonic speed' before hitting its target on the Kwajalein atoll in the Marshall Islandssome 2,500 miles away. It comes hot on the heels of the US Air Force announcement that it has taken delivery of eight, 15-ton bunker buster bombs, called the Massive Ordnance Penetrator, that can blow apart 200ft of concrete. And if it is rolled out by the US military, it will mean America will no longer have to rely on stationing missiles in foreign countries. . . Full story: eutimes.net

December 6, 2011 The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 S.1867 passed on December 1, in effect, revokes an 1878 law known as the Posse Comitatus Act, which banned the US Army from domestic law enforcement after the military had been usedand often abusedin that role during Reconstruction.

Zechariah Chapter Fourteen Part II
"The appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord" to Israel's high priest above and between the cherubim in the holy of holies on the day of Atonement left before God's servant Nebuchadnezzar razed His Temple, ending the monarchy and inaugurating "the times of the Gentiles" (Ezekiel 1:28; 10:22). It has since taken residence in the Temple of Jesus Messiah and His mystic Body, the Church (Matthew 3:16-17; Acts 2:3; Zechariah 6:12). Israel will see it no more until they "anoint the most holy place," their glorified King and His Queen, crowning Him King of Kings and Lord of Lords by the joy of their revelation at the recognition of His Presence or parousia Coming to destroy the foe and restore the Kingdom to Israel in the millennium (Revelation 19:1-16; Acts 1:6), shouting, "Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord" (Matthew 23:39). By worshipping the pagan trinity the nation had shunned the Glory and Presence of the Lord who would never again enter a holy of holies "made with hands" (Ezekiel 8; 10). In a material sense this Divine judgment will last to the consummation (Daniel 9:27), Spiritually it will end when the nation of 144,000 elect Israelites is born in one day: "At that time Michael will commence His reign . . . and every Israelite written in the Lamb's Book of Life will be delivered" (Daniel 12:1; Zechariah 14:3, 9; Luke 21:24).
When Jesus Messiah was baptized by John in the Jordan the Shekinah took residence in His temple in which we are pillars. He was not received by the priestly authorities of the second Temple whom he rebuked: "It is written: My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves." To the Scribes and Pharisees he declared, hereafter "this den of thieves" is "the Jews' house": "Your house is left to you forsaken and desolate. For I assure you, You will not see Me henceforth, till you say, Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord. And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple" (Matthew 21:13; 23:38 24:1).
Following His crucifixion the Lord ceased dealing with Israel as a nation, and turned to call "whomsoever [of Adam's race] will [receive Him] a people for His Name," a Bride, and sent His servant Titus to raze the second temple and destroy the city of Jerusalem. For two thousand years, the Israel nation has been homeless; her name and land stolen by wandering self-styled Jews of Cain's race. "But once the last elect Gentile has entered the place of God's rest, the Lord will stretch out His hand a second time to recover the remnant of His people, from Assyria, from Lower and Upper Egypt, and from Iran, and from Iraq, and from Syria, and from the Islands of the Mediterranean [NOT from Russia, Hungary, Germany, London, Paris or New York. Thus the present inhabitants of modern Israel are NOT "the remnant of His people," born of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, but imperSINators who style themselves Israelis]" (Isaiah 11:10-11). When Messiah returns to Israel He will find non-Semitic Jews and apostate Israelites, having forsaken Moses and the Prophets for the hubris of the Babylonian Talmud, resolved to build another Jews' house "made with hands".
Isaiah called Judea a second Sodom and Gomorrah after the nature of two Serpent's seed cities destroyed by God. Judah was desolated by God then overrun by the Serpent's seed, and Jerusalem will be ruled by a non-Semitic people unto the consummation and be as Sodom and Egypt spiritually speaking (Daniel 9:27, Luke 21:24 and Revelation 11:1-2, 8).
Jesus prophesied the whole world would be in a Sodom condition in the days of His 'parousia' Coming, yet there will be a remnant (Luke 17:28-30). Brother Branham said the denominational churches are in Sodom and that His Message is to call out the wise and foolish virgin as the Message of Israel's prophets will call out the remnant 144,000 (Romans 9:27-33).
As it was in the time of the earthquake in reign of Uzziah king of Judah, when the Lord comes to Israel He will find "a sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, descendants of evildoers, children who deal corruptly: having forsaken the Lord they have despised the Holy One of Israel, and are utterly estranged. . . Your country is devastated; your cities have been burned with fire: in your very presence Serpent's seed [(Heb.) Zuwr] devour your cultivated land, it is a devastation overthrown by Serpent's seed. The daughter of Zion [Christ's Bride] is left behind like a watchman's shanty in a vineyard when the harvest time is over, like a shack in a cucumber patch, or a city preserved from the desolation that surrounds it. Had the Lord of hosts not stepped in to save a very small remnant, natural and Spiritual Israel would have been wiped out like Sodom and Gomorrah. Hear the Word of the Lord, you rulers of Sodom [Jerusalem]; listen to the teaching of our God you nation of Gomorrah [Israel]" (Isaiah 1:4, 7-10; Amos 1:1; Zechariah 14:5).
The same prophet rebukes Israel at the commencement of Daniel's Seventieth Week after the translation of Christ's Bride, for their external religion of works and emotive ritual without faith. Isaiah 66:1-4: "Thus says the Lord: The heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool: what manner of house would you build for Me, and where would be the place of My rest? For My hand has made everything, and all these things are Mine, says the Lord. But I will look favourably upon the man who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at My Word." The heavens could not contain Him yet God's fullness dwelt bodily in Jesus Messiah. And He will dwell in your heart by the baptism with the Holy Ghost, which is the new birth, and every act of external, ceremonial worship will be an offence. The Israelites found it difficult to escape the concept of a local god like the heathen divinities that could be circumscribed by space. Stephen (Acts 7:48-49) and Paul (Acts 17:24-34) appealed to our Scripture in their protests against this vain imagination.
Since the sacrifice of our kinsman Redeemer is all-sufficient (Hebrews 10:12-13): "He who slaughters an ox is like one who offers a human sacrifice; he who sacrifices a lamb, is as if he cut off a dog's neck; he who offers an unbloody offering [for instance, grain], is as if he offered swine's blood; he who burns incense, as if he blessed an idol." The ritual of synagogue and church are comparable to forbidden offerings; any effort by Israel to revive animal sacrifices and oblations which had been appointed by the Law is here declared on a par with the cruel and abominable practices of the heathen, who offered human sacrifices the Hebrews were taught to hold in abomination.
"As they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations, [in retribution] I also will choose their delusions (II Thessalonians 2:11), and what they dread I will bring upon them; because when I called, no one answered; and when I spoke, they did not listen: but they did what was evil in My eyes, and chose what was displeasing to Me."
In verses 5 we see the division between the elect Israelites and the reprobate Jews who scoff at them. "Hear the Word of the Lord, you who tremble at His Word; Your [unbelieving] brethren who hated you, and cast you out for My Name's sake, said [mockingly], "Let the Lord show Himself glorious [by manifesting Himself in your behalf]: that we may see your joy" As in Isaiah 5:19; Isaiah 28:15; 57:4; Matthew 27:42-43. But it is the scoffers and apostate nations that will be put to shame as we see in verse 6: "What is this uproar from the city! A voice from the [third] temple! It is the voice of the Lord taking vengeance upon His enemies [the scoffers within the city]." And the baptism with the Holy Spirit to His elect (Ezekiel 43:1-12; Zechariah 12:2-4 14:2-3, 19-21; Revelation 11:13).
Verse 7, "Before Zion/Israel travailed, [under the tribulation of the Seven Trumpet judgments, begun with the siege of Jerusalem by Titus in Matthew 24:21] she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a Man child, [Jesus Messiah, "the Light of the Gentiles"].
Revelation 12:1-5, "And there appeared a great symbol in heaven; a woman clothed with the Sun, and the Moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars: [This woman is Zion/Spiritual Israel with the Law under her feet, and having crossed into the S_O_N-Light she is crowned with the doctrine of the twelve original apostles]. And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another symbol in heaven; and behold a great red dragon [Satan], having seven heads [or deified emperors] and ten horns [the divisions into which Rome subsequently divided], and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail [Talmudic deception (Isaiah 9:15)] drew the third part of the stars of heaven [natural Israel, Shem's deceived seed], and cast them to the Earth [at the crucifixion, causing their names to be blotted from the Book of Life (Psalm 69:28)]: and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to bear, that he might devour her child as soon as it was born. [Roman Procurator, Judah's Edomite king Herod sought to assassinate the rival to his royal house (Matthew 2)]. And she brought forth a Man child [Jesus Messiah], who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up to God, and to His throne [at Jesus' ascension]" (Acts 1:9).
That was the first Coming of the "Man child" before the tribulation which is the era from the opening of the First Seal in Revelation 6:1 to Revelation 19:21, the consummation when the enemies of God and man are slain thus binding Satan until the general resurrection.
Verse 8 speaks of His second Coming: "Who ever heard of such a thing? Who ever saw its like? Shall a land be brought forth in one day? Shall a nation be born in one moment? For as soon as Zion/Spiritual Israel travailed [in the great tribulation], she gave new birth to her children [144,000 elect Israelitesat the revelation of Christ's parousia]".
Zechariah 3:8-10, "Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, you and your fellows who sit before you: these are a symbol [Isaiah 8:18]: for, behold, I will bring forth My Servant the BRANCH [speaking of Christ's second or parousia Coming to Israel]. For behold the Stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one Stone will be seven eyes: [so when Israel catches the revelation of Messiah, they will recognize His Gentile Wife (Zechariah 6:12)]: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, [or loose the Seven Seals and reveal their mystery], says the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day [Daniel 9:24c]. In that day, says the Lord of hosts, you shall call every man his neighbour under the vine and under the fig tree," for you will enter the millennium.
Brother Branham places this Scripture just after the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, for he says, "Then will He return, leaving His Bride in "His Father's house," while he makes Himself known to His brethren. At this very time, the antichrist covenant the Jews have made with Rome will be broken. Rome and her allies then send their troops to destroy all the God-fearing, Word-abiding Jews. But as they come against the city to destroy it, there will appear in the heavens the sign of the Coming of the Son of Man with His mighty armies [Matthew 24:3b, 30; Revelation 1:18; 19:1-16; Isaiah 11:1-4; Jeremiah 33:14-17] to destroy them who have been destroying the earth [Revelation 11:18-19]. With the enemy repulsed [Revelation 11:13; 12:16-17], Jesus then comes and presents Himself to the 144,000. Having seen His mighty acts of salvation, they have come to know His power. But also seeing His wounds and knowing that they had rejected Him even to that moment, causes them to cry out in the agony of terror and fear, even as did their brethren of old when they stood before Joseph, being sore afraid that they would be killed. But as Joseph said, "Don't be angry with yourselves. It is all right. God was in it all. He did it to preserve life" [Zechariah 13]. Even so will Jesus speak peace and love to them" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 40:2).
The Bible was sealed from the foundation of the world until after the Church Ages (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4; 4:1 6:1) when Christ claimed the Book of Redemption, opened the Seals and revealed their mystery to His angel William Branham, who signified it to His servant John (Revelation 1:1). During two years imprisonment on the Island of Patmos John was caught up in the Spirit and in a series of visions saw and heard Brother Branham expound the Seven Seals in 1963 as Christ revealed them to him. John wrote the Book of Revelation wherein he recorded those things in Old Testament symbols. As Brother Branham was the angel to the Seventh Church Age (Revelation 10:7), and all Seven Church Ages were over, this revelation is given exclusively to Christ's end-time Bride. As a consequence no matter how thoroughly you testify these things, only Christ's end-time Bride will receive the faith. And since you are Christ's end-time Bride, wherever John refers to himself you should place your name.
Revelation 19:1-16, "After these things [Israel's tribulation under her Seven Trumpet judgments, Satan's casting down to Earth, the Three Woes of World Wars I, II, and III, the Seven Vials poured out upon the non-elect church, and the calling-out of the 144,000 elect Israelites who will fulfill the sixfold purpose of Gabriel's visit to Daniel under this revelation (Daniel 9:24c)] I . . . (your name here) . . . heard the voice of a great throng in heaven, crying, Hallelujah!
This Hebrew exclamation, "Praise Yah," uttered by God's servants, the Old Testament saints (Revelation 18:24), is found first in Psalms on the destruction of the ungodly. Isaiah 40:1-5: "Comfort, comfort My people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and tell her that her warfare is ended, her iniquity is pardoned: that she has received from the Lord's hand double for her sins. [The twofold captivity by Assyria and Rome that come to their close after the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, and only then will "her iniquity be pardoned" (Daniel 9:24), "her warfare be ended," and her foe destroyed (Daniel 9:27)]. A voice cries: Prepare the way of the Lord in the wilderness, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted, every mountain and hill be made low: the crooked turns straightened, and the rough made a plain. And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together (Zechariah 14:3-5; Matthew 24:30): for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it." [Under inspiration Matthew varied the connection to bring out another sense (Matthew 3:1), but Isaiah was referring to the coming restoration of Israel and the millennium. The clause, "in the wilderness" alludes to Israel's passage from Egypt to Canaan led by the Angel of the Lord (Psalms 68:7), and the Angel of the Lord shall lead the restoration of Israel].
"And . . . (your name here) . . . saw New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a Bride adorned for her husband, and I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God" (Revelation 21:2-3). The glory of God is His Family, principally Jesus Christ and His Bride, for through the invisible marriage union the two are One. This will be the completion of Brother Branham's 'tent vision' (Genesis 9:27). This vision is a preview of our return for the millennium when the "The glory of the Lord shall be revealed," the 144,000 will "anoint the most holy place" (Daniel 9:24), and all [glorified] flesh shall see it together" (Isaiah 40:5).
"The salvation, and the glory, and the power of our God: for true and just are His judgments: for He judged the great [Judaeo-Roman Catholic] harlot, that corrupted the earth with her fornication, and He avenged the blood of His servants at her hand. And a second time they said, Hallelujah. And her smoke ascends into the ages of the ages. And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God who sits on the throne, saying, Amen; Hallelujah." The last of the seven major continuous visions God showed Brother Branham in 1933 has come to pass: God's servant, Judaeo-Communist Russia, has avenged "the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the Earth" by blasting Vatican City State and her United States image from the face of the Earth (Revelation 17:16; 18:8-20; 19:3; ibid. p. 322:3).
"And a voice [that of the seventh angel, William Branham] came forth from the throne saying, Give praise to our God, all His servants, and those that fear Him, the small and the great. And I heard as the voice of a great throng and as a voice of many waters [Christ's wife of all Seven Church Ages returning with Her Husband], and as a voice of strong thunders [all seven], saying, Hallelujah: for the Lord God Almighty has assumed the Kingdom. [The way for His advent to reign and restore the Kingdom to Israel for a thousand years of peace is cleared by the overthrow of Rome and carnal Christendom]. Let us be glad and exult, we will give the glory to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb has come to pass, and His wife made herself ready. And to her was given that she should array herself in fine linen, bright and pure: for the fine linen is the righteousnesses of the saints."
"And he said to . . . (your name) . . . Write, Blessed are they who are called unto the supper of the marriage of the Lamb. And he said: These are the true Words of God. And I fell before his feet to worship him. And he said to me, Take heed, do it not: I am your fellow servant and of your brethren who have the witness of Jesus: worship God: for the witness of Jesus is the Spirit of the prophecy [in each of the saints]."
"And I saw the heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He who sat upon him is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wars. His eyes were a flame of fire, and on His head many crowns [as King of kings His crown comprises the diadems of all the kingdoms of Earth], and He has a Name written, that no man knew, but Himself, and He is clothed in a vesture dipped in [the] blood [of His enemies (Isaiah 63:1-6)]: and His Name is called The Word of God [who made the world (Isaiah 54:5; John 1:1-14; Colossians 1:16-19)]. And the armies in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and pure. And out of His mouth goes forth a sharp sword (Isaiah 11:4; II Thessalonians 2:8), that with it He should smite the nations: [whereas He would have shepherded them with a pastoral rod and the golden scepter of His love] now He and no other shall shepherd them [in a punitive sense and dash them in pieces, as refractory rebels] with an iron rod, and He treads the winepress of the wine of the anger of the wrath [and omnipotent resources] of Almighty God. And He has on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS".
This will be the birth of Israel in one day as soon as she "travails," following the martyrdom, resurrection and ascension of their two prophets. See Newsletter 697.
Isaiah 54 compares Zion/Israel after her conversion to a wife put away for unfaithfulness but now forgiven and taken home again (Isaiah 62:1-5). The converted Gentiles are represented as a new progeny of the long-forsaken but now restored wife. Natural Israel could not bear during the Gentile dispensation since the New Testament did away with the old theocracy and her former connection with her divine Husband. Trodden down in bondage under the Law she was barren and could not bear Spiritual children. Unbeknownst to the deceived woman, "Your Maker is your Husband; the Lord of hosts is His Name; and He shall be called your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; the God of the whole earth [JESUS, Jehovah-Saviour, for He will save His people from their sins" (Isaiah 54:5; Matthew 1:21)].
Isaiah 54:1 is Galatians 4:27: After the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week natural Zion/Israel will be told: "Sing, O barren one, who did not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, you who have not been in travail with child: for more are the children of the [once] desolate [Gentiles, who before the New Testament were without the promise, and destitute of God as their Husband], than the children of [natural Israel] the married wife [numerous as were the children under the legal covenant, those of the Gospel and grace are vastly more numerous], says the Lord" (Isaiah 49; nl412; nl413).
Paraphrasing Isaiah 66:9 the Lord asks a rhetorical question expressing the same thought in two different ways meaning: "Shall I who have begun, not finish My work of restoring Zion/Israel"? Since the restoration of Israel was His long-laid plan He will certainly neither delay nor abort the national rebirth and the glorious restoration of the Kingdom to Israel.
Verses 10-13: Her friends who had before mourned over her are now justly called upon to rejoice with and participate in her happiness: "delight in Jerusalem; as an infant, drink deep from the breasts of her consolations the abundance of her glory." The joy to which the prophet summons her friends is well-founded since the Lord Himself says "I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream."
Verse 12: "The glory [or riches] of the Gentiles," as Paul explains in Romans 11:11-12, 32, is new birth in Jesus Messiah, and "Christ in you is the hope of glory"tabernacling God in New Jerusalem. Through Israel's apostasy God rejected the covenant nationbut not individual Israelitesuntil Daniel's Seventieth Week, and brought the riches of eternal Life to us Gentiles to provoke elect Israelites to jealousy and new birth. Gentile apostasy will soon cause the glory and riches of new birth in Jesus Messiah to pass to the covenant nation, all 144,000 (Isaiah 61:6-7).
"As a man whom his mother comforts, so will I comfort you [with a mother's love, strong enough to raise up a strong man bowed down by misfortune. Israel is portrayed as a man returned from a foreign country, escaped from bondage, full of sad recollections, which are wholly obliterated in the maternal arms of divine love] in Jerusalem" the one place God will meet with the people of the Old Covenant (Deuteronomy 16:2, 5-6).
Joel 2:32: "And it shall come to pass, that whosoever [i.e. Israel's elect] calls on the Name of the Lord will be delivered: [like the Christians who in response to our Lord's warning retired to Pella just before Jerusalem's destruction (Matthew 24:16). The Saviour first appeared "in Zion and Jerusalem"; and there again will He appear as the Deliverer (Zechariah 14:1-5). Paul applied this sentence to Jesus in Romans 10:13 because Jesus of the New Testament is Jehovah of the Old: Jesus means 'Jehovah-Saviour,' so if the elect Israelites, and at this time God is dealing only with 144,000 elect Israelites, call on God in His divine attributes as Messiah, Saviour and Kinsman Redeemer, they will be delivered (Isaiah 44:6; 45:21-22; 48:17; Matthew 1:21)] for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be escape, as the Lord has said, and those who are saved will be the remnant whom the Lord has called".
Verse 14: "When you see this [demonstration of the power of God on His friends and on His foes in the time of Israel's latter rain], your heart will rejoice; your bones will feel themselves excited to fresh, vigorous manifestation of life, and flourish like green grass. And all the world will recognize the hand of God's favour is with His [144,000] servants, and His indignation is against His enemies" (Zechariah 12; 13; 14). The salvation of God's people is coincident and simultaneous with the destruction of His enemies.
Verses 15-18 describe God's judgment upon the wicked. "For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury, and His rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by His sword will the Lord plead with all flesh and the slain of the Lord shall be many (Ezekiel 38:21-23: Joel 3:2; Zechariah 14:3-5). Those who consecrate and purify themselves to go into the gardens behind one tree in the midst, who eat swine's flesh, vermin, and mice, shall come to an end together, says the Lord."
Having regard to the hour in which this prophecy is set I believe verse 17 describes Jewish and Israelite devotees in Israel "following one tree in the midst"Satan, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evilcast down to Earth and incarnate in Rome's pope (Genesis 2:9; Isaiah 65:3-4; II Thessalonians 2:9-12; Revelation 17:11). These are impersonating the Old Testament animal sacrifices, or imitating Judaeo-Roman rites and dogma the beast will force when he breaks his covenant with the Jewish banksters (Daniel 9:27; 7:23-25; Revelation 13:4-8; 15-18). "I know the works and thoughts of these [apostates]: I will gather all nations and tongues against Jerusalem, and they shall come and see My glory.
Verse 19: "I will set a sign/symbol [in Israel, as a rallying point to attract the dispersed (Isaiah 11:12; 62:10-12)]. (Heb.) 'nec' means standard, ensign, signal, or something that is lifted up as a rallying point (Strong's #5251). The REVELATION of the sign or symbol will be the glory of God. Matthew 24:30, "then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory." The physical (Gk.) 'erchomai' manifestation men see will be "the sign of thy (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming" enquired of by the disciples in Matthew 24:3. It is this SIGN, Shekinah, or Pillar of Cloud over the Mount of Olives that will be seen, NOT the glorified Jesus. Brother Branham called this "the REVELATION story" after the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week when elect Israelites see or come to UNDERSTAND that Jesus whom their forefathers murdered is their Messiah, repent and receive Him as Lord (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 36 41; Zechariah 12:9-14). Worldwide the righteous non-elect souls will recognize Scripture has been fulfilled, realizing their stand for Him will mean martyrdom. Only those who return to Earth with the glorified Jesus and "tread down the [atomic] ashes of the wicked" after the consummation of Life will see His physical return with their own eyes (Malachi 4:1-33; II Thessalonians 1:6-10). The non-elect will be dead, all evidence of human existence erased by fire, and until his subjects are raised in the general resurrection, Satan and his demons will be bound a thousand years because they cannot harm or influence the glorified saints (Revelation 19:20 20:3, 5-15).
Isaiah 11:10-16 describes the Messianic age of redemption and fall between verses 1-5, the branch out of David, and 6-9, the millennium, New Heavens and New Earth. Reading verses 10-12 following verses 1-5, "Throughout the Messianic age of redemption the root of Jesse [Jesus the BRANCH] shall stand for an ensign for the Gentiles; [the knowledge of His righteousness will be observable to all, and mightily draw the attention of all to Himself (Romans 15:12)]; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and the place of His rest shall be glory. [The place of His rest is His Body, the Church, where He reveals the fullness of His might and glory (Psalm 45:13-14; Isaiah 66:1-2; Ephesians 1:23; Revelation 21:2-3). And it shall come to pass in that day [when the Body is complete and gathered Home to the Wedding Supper], that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant 144,000 elect Israelites, from Assyria, and from the three parts of Egypt, and from Cush [Southern India to the interior of Africa], and from Elam [Iran], and from Shinar [Turkey], and from Hamath [Syria], and from the western islands and coastlands of the Mediterranean sea. And He shall set up an ensign to the nations, as a sign that will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth."
Here is further Scriptural proof that the citizens of modern Israel are mainly non-Semitic self-styled Jews and Semitic Arabs, and not the people of God's Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Israel (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; Joel 3:1; Micah 5:3; Zephaniah 3:8-10; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31; Revelation 12:14). It is beyond dispute that "Satan, the adversary [of the children of Israel], prowls around like a roaring lion [in the form of the 'City of London and her colonies], seeking whom he may devour [in these countries]" (I Peter 5:8; Genesis 27:39-41).
Zechariah 14:1-2: "All nations will gather together against Jerusalem . . ." Then the Supernatural Cloud of glory will appear and the Mount of Olives will cleave in two. This will precede Zechariah 12:3, and the divided mountain will be the lasting sign to Matthew 24:30 (Isaiah 29:6; Zechariah 14:4; Revelation 16:19), and the Israelites who escape through the valley will announce the sign of Christ's 'parousia' Coming to their brethren dwelling among the Gentiles, predominantly in the now Muslim lands of the ancient Assyrian empire and in nations the Edomite Jews seek to destroy (Genesis 3:15; 27:39-41; I Peter 5:8) . . . to gather them to the Land of the Covenant for their redemption. Thus Zechariah 14:4-5 (Joel 2:32) will be the antitype of Matthew 24:16-21.
In Isaiah 49:4-6, 22 Jesus Messiah says, "I have laboured [over Israel] in vain, I have spent My strength for naught, and in vain (Isaiah 53:1-3; John 1:11; Romans 10:20): yet surely My judgment is with the Lord, and My reward with My God. But now, says the Lord, who formed Me from the womb to be His servant, to bring Jacob back to Him: Though Israel is not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the Lord, and My God shall be My strength. And He said: 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 reach to the end of the Earth . . . Thus says the Lord God to Zion/Israel: Behold, I will swear an oath to the Gentiles, and set up My standard to those peoples: and they shall bring your sons in their arms, and your daughters [Christ's Gentile Bride, Spiritual Israel, the countless children converted to the Lord while Zion was forsaken by her Husband] shall be carried on their shoulders".
Isaiah 66:19-21, "I will send those [Israelites] who escape to the nations, to Tarshish [Spain], Pul [an island in the Nile between Egypt and Ethiopia], and Lud [Libya], celebrated archers, to Tubal [south of the Caucasus, between the Black Sea and Araxes, probably Cappadocia, now part of Turkey], and Javan [Greece and Asia Minor], to the isles afar off, that have not heard My fame, neither seen My glory; and they shall declare My glory, [Jesus Christ "from whom the whole Family of God in heaven and earth is named," to the Israelites] among the Gentiles. [The glory of God is employed as the Lord's standard, His ensign or rallying point in Israel (Isaiah 11:10-12; 49:22; 62:10, and Ezekiel 43:1-2)]. And they shall bring all your brethren for a [precious unbloody] offering to the Lord out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to My holy mountain Jerusalem, says the Lord, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel to the house of the Lord. And some of them will I take for [typical] priests and for Levites], says the Lord."
Revelation 21:3, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God." These chosen ones from among the returnees will be among the 144,000 who will live consecrated godly lives in the Presence of God within the City. Like the priests and Levites of old they will be sustained by tithes brought by the "saved" without the City from new Moon to new Moon and from sabbath to sabbath (Revelation 21:26).
Verse 22 confirms the offerors and the chosen offerings are both of the pure seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. "For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before Me, says the Lord, so shall your new Life be eternal"
Verse 23, "And it shall come to pass, that from one new Moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, all flesh [living without the City] shall come to worship before Me, says the Lord." New Jerusalem is where God and His Family is worshipped together; the City is God's elect, we are God manifest. There will be no time, and no new moons or sabbaths in the City which is lit not by the sun or the moon but the Shekinah. This is foreshadowed by Matthew 11:29 which speaks of new birth in Jesus as our sabbath, a temporal blessing until we enter New Jerusalem, the Place of God's eternal rest where there will be no hunger or thirst, no heat or cold, and no feast of Tabernacles. Following the millennium which is the seventh day and sabbath after six days labouring against sin, we will enter the eighth day, which is eternity, and as "pillars in the temple of God, we shall out go no more" (Leviticus 23:36, 39; Revelation 3:12; 7:9-17; Zechariah 14:16-21). Consequently by being granted into eternal Life at the white throne judgment, the "saved" will be granted into the eighth day of the feast of Tabernacles which is eternity.
Colossians 2:16-17, "Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of any holyday, or new moon, or of the sabbath days: which are a shadow of things to come; but the Body is of Christ".
Verse 24: "And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcasses of the men that have rebelled against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorrence to all mankind".
Brother Branham said, "If you're a sinner and your soul slips out, it'll go yonder into judgment and will be condemned. And then you'll be cast away, and you'll be in torment until the day that you are brought back to this earth again. And you will receive an immortal body, an immortal body that cannot die, and will be cast away into outer darkness where there'll be weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth. You'll be cast into hell, where the worm never dies or fire is never quenched, and you'll be tormented through all ages there is to come. Jesus said that. That's a black picture, but it's what the Bible said" (COD, p. 113:45). However as Gehenna had a time it began, it is not eternal and will have a time that it ends, and as sinners do not have eternal life, their part in the lake of Fire will be limited. nl713.htm
