How the Fall of Greece affects YOU No Matter Where You Are
Syria: Seeking a Convenient Casus Belli
February 23, 2012 You are an embattled nation with the entire world watching. Your allies Russia and China just made a major decision at the UN Security Council in your favor with much of their reputation and future at stake. Western propagandists have been relentlessly making up news stories regarding your nation no matter what you do, for nearly a year . . .
Your choices: continue a campaign to restore order in Homs which is admittedly overrun by cross-border militants and foreign terrorists operating with NATO support and arms, fighting under the banner of the "Free Syrian Army." Or, spend your time instead purposefully killing women and children in front of British and French journalists before plotting over easily-intercepted radios their spectacular deaths in front of a watching world?
Quite clearly there is something wrong with this narrative being given to us by the West, who have established themselves by a comfortable margin as serial liars. Iraq lost a million sons and daughters to these lies. Libya likewise was portrayed as a nation "massacring civilians" when it is now clear these "civilians" were US State Department-listed terrorists of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group who are now conducting nationwide murder sprees.
Reading any report out of the corporate-media, we find Syria's campaign against admittedly armed rebels paradoxically referred to as a "massacre," and an almost palpable fervor to justify circumventing the latest UNSC resolution veto. As news comes out of the death of two foreign journalists in Homs, Remi Ochlik and Marie Colvin who sneaked into Syria and were operating there illegally to begin with, Western leaders are unanimously calling this the "breaking point". . .
One wonders where Sarkozy's moral fortitude was when in January, while covering a pro-Assad rally in Homs, French journalist Gilles Jacquier was killed in a rebel attack. Unbelievably, not only does this contradict the news we've been told all along of Assad persecuting a brutal campaign against peaceful protesters, but while the attack was condemned by France, it was the Syrian government who was blamed for not protecting their journalists from armed thugs. Where were the calls for the rebels to lay down their arms? Where was the cessation of political support for the "Free Syrian Army?" Where was the decision by NATO to discontinue their support for rebels who had now murdered a Western journalist?
Clearly, reason is not driving Western foreign policy, rather a search for a convenient "casus belli" to serve where their "responsibility to protect" doctrine has failed. We will not know what really happened in Syria this week regarding the two journalists allegedly killed there, so long as "activists say" is attached to each claim made about the events.
What we do know is that the West has long ago predetermined that regime change will occur in Syria, and that they will do anything necessary, at any cost to achieve it. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Clinton admits US on same Side as Al Qaeda to Destabilise Assad Government
February 27, 2012 Clinton said: "We have a very dangerous set of actors in the region, al-Qaida [sic], Hamas, and those who are on our terrorist list, to be sure, supportingclaiming to support the opposition [in Syria]."
Yet at the same time, in the above BBC interview the US Secretary of State repeats the threadbare Western claim that the situation in Syria is one of a defenceless population coming under "relentless attack" from Syrian government forces.
There is ample evidence that teams of snipers who have been killing civilians over the past year in Syria belong to the terrorist formations to which Clinton is referring to. . . "Since the middle of March 2011, Islamist armed groupscovertly supported by Western and Israeli intelligencehave conducted terrorist attacks directed against government buildings, including acts of arson. Amply documented, trained gunmen and snipers, including mercenaries, have targeted the police, armed forces, as well as innocent civilians. There is ample evidence, as outlined in the Arab League Observer Mission report, that these armed groups of mercenaries are responsible for killing civilians. While the Syrian government and military bear a heavy burden of responsibility, it is important to underscore the fact that these terrorist actsincluding the indiscriminate killing of men, women and childrenare part of a US-NATO-Israeli initiative, which consists is supporting, training and financing 'an armed entity' operating inside Syria."
The admission at the weekend by Hillary Clinton corroborates the finding that armed groups are attacking civilians and these groups are terroristic, according to US own definitions, and that the situation in Syria is not one of unilateral state violence against its population but rather is one of a shadowy armed insurrection. . . Clinton also acknowledges in the BBC interview that there is "a very strong opposition to foreign intervention from inside Syria, from outside Syria"which tacitly concedes the fact that the Syrian population is aware that the so-called oppositionists within their country are Al Qaeda-affiliated mercenaries. . .

Planned Regime Change in Syria
February 29, 2012 Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and now Syria had peace and calm until Washington intervened belligerently. Strategies and tactics vary. Objectives are consistent. They involve replacing independent regimes with pro-Western ones by any means, including war. Three unwinnable ones rage. Nonetheless, Obama plans more. Syria's target one. For the past year, US-instigated violence ravaged parts of the country. Thousands have been killed, many others injured.
Syria's gripped by fear. Heavily armed killer gangs rage out of control, and direct foreign intervention looms. . . Assad's wrongly blamed. The blame game targets victims, not villains. As a result, ongoing conflict continues. February 26 was potentially historic. Syrians overwhelmingly approved constitutional reform. Only the fullness of time will tell if promised change, in fact, happens. Western intervention may prevent it. . . Full story: sjlendman.blogspot.com.au
AIPAC presses Congress for War; Zionist Christians have the Votes
February 29, 2012 A look at American Israeli Public Affairs Committee's (AIPAC) website reveals that Israel is selling war at the Washington DC Convention Center on the first week in March. Every front page story is about war against Iran, except one that is against Palestinian statehood. AIPAC is in Washington to get Americans to pay for its war of choice upon its distant neighbor that just happens to produce a great deal of oil.
Our American president will address this foreign lobby. Newt Gingrich and many members of Congress will also be there. Is AIPAC a danger to world peace? Sure it is. A second danger to world peace is the Christian Zionist churches that are selling their congregations on the need to finance Israel's wars.
Zionist Christianity has some 70 million Americans under its influence; it is AIPAC's trump card. . . A recent Poll by The Hill found that 49% of Americans who are likely to vote, think war on Iran is justifiable to keep it from getting nukes; all AIPAC has to do is convince a majority that Iran is trying to get fuel for nuclear weapons, and war against Iran will have the support of a simple majority.

Republican Congressional Candidate says 'Holocaust Never Happened'
February 29, 2012 Arthur Jones, 64, a Lyons, IL, insurance salesman who organizes family-friendly, neo-Nazi events around Adolf Hitler's birthday, hopes to be the Republican candidate chosen to run against Democratic Congressman Dan Lipinski in Illinois' 3rd Congressional District.
"As far as I'm concerned, the Holocaust is nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews," Jones said. "It's the blackest lie in history. Millions of dollars are being made by Jews telling this tale of woe and misfortune in books, movies, plays and TV. "The more survivors, the more lies that are told". . .
Jones hopes three's a charm after blowing his retirement savings on two prior congressional runs. . . Part of the reason he's jumping in again is what he describes as Lipinski's strange affiliation with the American Israel Pro Israel Affairs Committee. "(The committee) was bragging on their website how (Lipinski) is 'spearheading' the effort in the House of Representatives with a Jewish congressman from Virginia named Frank Wolf," Jones said. "The two are spearheading an effort in the House to get tough with Iran, including closing off any oil exports to China that could lead to World War III."
Jones compares today's conditions in the United States to Germany following the end of World War I. "Our country is falling apart economically, politically, culturally, militarily," he said. "We are going down." A veteran of the Vietnam War with all of its modern horrors, he sees the same betrayal in the "so-called War on Terrorism." "These war-mongering fools in congress like Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney—we can't let Iran have one nuclear weapon but we let Israel have all the nuclear weapons they want," Jones said. "This is ridiculous" . . . Full story: oaklawn.patch.com
Comment: Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called on a number of occasions for an historical examination of 'the Holocaust' in an effort to uncover realities of the much publicized World War II event. His remarks, however, have sparked outrage among pro-Israeli Western powers, labeling him as a "holocaust denier".
Israel's Assassins and Tehran's Killers
March 3, 2012 The Israeli program, which has been in place for almost a decade, involves not only targeted killings of key Iranian assets, but also disrupting and sabotaging the Iran nuclear technology by infecting Iran's enrichment computers with a US-Israel virus that heavily damaged them and by sabotaging Iran's purchasing network abroad. . .
Former senior CIA officials said that Israeli terrorists were members of the Mujahideen-e-Khalq (MEK), who are paid by Israel to do targeted killings of Iranian nationals. "The MEK is being used as the assassination arm of Israel's Mossad intelligence service," said Vince Cannistraro, former CIA chief of counterterrrorism. He said that the MEK is in charge of executing "the motor attacks on Iranian targets chosen by Israel. They go to Israel for training, and Israel pays them". . . Mossad has a long history of killing opponents. . . A former senior Department of Defense (DoD) official said, "Israel killed Arab scientists without compunction". . . A former senior US military official summed it up, "Israel is out of step with American policy." Full story: truth-out.org
Noah's Ark is (still) in Turkey
The Ark of Noah has been found. . . In 1959, Turkish army captain Llhan Durupinar discovered an unusual shape while examining aerial photographs of his country. The smooth shape, larger than a football field, stood out from the rough and rocky terrain at an altitude of 6,300 feet near the Turkish border with Iran. Most of the global media turned away from the find and it became a non-story.
In 1977 Ron Wyatt visited the site. Obtaining official permission, Ron and others conducted more thorough research over a period of several years. They used metal detection surveys, subsurface radar scans, and chemical
analysisreal scienceand their findings were startling. The evidence was undeniable. This was the Ark of Noah. . .

Americans get Attention
January 6, 2012 In a statement responding to news of his elevation to cardinal, Archbishop Dolan said he was "honored, humbled and grateful," but stressed the honor was "about an affirmation of love from the Pope to a celebrated archdiocese and community and a summons to its unworthy archbishop to serve Jesus, his Church universal, his vicar on earth, and his people better."
"It's as if Pope Benedict is putting the red hat on top of the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty or on home plate at Yankee Stadium; or on the spires of St. Patrick's Cathedral or any of our other parish churches," he told a press conference in New York January 6. "This is the successor of St. Peter saying to the clergy, sisters, brothers, lay faithful of this archdiocese, and to all of our friends and neighbors of New York: Thank you! Keep up the good work! You are a leader, an inspiration, to the Church and to the world". . . Full story: ncregister.com
Comment: Brother Branham said, "I believe, one of these glorious days, when this united confederation of church goes together, and the new pope is brought out of the United States and put over there according to prophecy, then they'll form an image like unto the beast. And I tell you, the true Church of God will be drove together. The real, true believers out of Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Nazarene, Pilgrim Holiness, whatever they'll be, will go together and cemented by the love of God, that'll make the Body of the Lord Jesus Christ, all the believers. And agnostics and shallow-minded will be cast to one side; they'll go right on into the confederation of churches" (Acts of the Holy Spirit, p. 12:87).
And it is catching. Speaking of Iran, Republican presidential candidate Judaeo-Roman Catholic Rick Santorum wants the United States to be more like the rogue Arab nation. What an equivocator! The "rogue state" IS the United States. The peaceful, "mind its own business" state is Iran! In an interview with ABC on Sunday, Santorum said, "I don't believe in an America where the separation between church and state is absolute." In other words Santorum believes America should institute a theocracy in just like Iran. This is what Jesus prophesied WILL come to pass, soon (Revelation 13:11-18).
Rick Santorum wants to wipe clean 230 years of American tradition going all the way back to the founding fathers who looked around the world at theocracies and wanted America to be differentwho wanted a separation between church and state. Talk about the ultimate version of "Big Government"Santorum believes in a government that will tell us what we can believe inwho we should pray toand what our moral values should be (truth-out.org). Precisely as prophesied.

The Beast and the False Prophet
Revelation 12:1-2: "A great portent appeared in heaven; a woman clothed with the Sun, with the Moon under her feet, and a crown of twelve stars upon her head: and she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon [Satan], having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads [Rome]. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven [Israelites], and cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, to devour her child as soon as it was born".
The woman was the elect Old Testament Church of Israel which brought Jesus Messiah into the world clothed with the S_O_N-Light of Christ the Logos at her head, crowned with the doctrine of the Apostles and with the Moon under her feet showing she had crossed from Law to grace, for the Moon is a shadow of the Sun as "the Law was a shadow of Messiah the Word" (Hebrews 10:1). The great red dragon was Satan, then working through Imperial Rome as indicated by the crowns upon the heads of the seven emperors who blasphemously deified themselves and were worshipped as God.
It was not the dragon's tail that caused the Israelites to fall but the tale of false doctrine by which he deceived their non-elect through the heresy of Pharisaism which is Judaism that makes the Word of God of no effect by the antithetical Talmudic traditions of men whereby they murdered Messiah (Matthew 15:1-9). Their names were blotted from the Book of Life and their souls cast from heaven to the abyss while they lived (Romans 7:2; I Corinthians 11:29-30). Isaiah 9:15: "The ancient and honourable [Jesus Messiah], is the head; and the false prophet that teaches lies, is the tail." Satan employs the same tactic against professing Christians, and like the seven deified emperors, Rome's pope "as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God" (II Thessalonians 2:4; John 5:43).
Rome persecuted the woman in the person of Jerusalem's Edomite King Herod who sought to kill his rival "born King of the Judeans," murdering "all the children that were in Bethlehem and environs, from two years old and under" as prophesied in Jeremiah 31:15 (Matthew 2). After two thousand years in which Rome has martyred scores of millions of Christians we come to the end of the Gentile dispensation where she will martyr millions more (Revelation 6:11; 11:7; 13:15-15, etc):
Revelation 12:7-13: "There was war in heaven: Michael and His angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, but they were defeated. So the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."
"And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them day and night before our God has been thrown down. The Church Age saints have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the Word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death."
"Rejoice O heavens, and you who dwell therein. Woe to the earth and the sea, for the Devil has come down to you with raging anger, because he knows that his time is short. And when the dragon found himself cast down to earth he persecuted the woman [Israel's 144,000 elect] who brought forth the man Child".
This prophecy will be fulfilled under the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet at the close of the Gentile dispensation when Satan is cast out of heaven, and all his angels with him. What is heaven? Heaven consists of the Logos or Word. It is the mind of God. Who are Satan's angels? Who but the physical Serpent's seed whose names are not written in the Book of Life and those of Adam's race whose names have been blotted from the Book of Life?
In his dreams Daniel saw four powers rising up amongst the people of the known world portrayed as brutal, venomous and untamable wild beasts characterizing four world empires that will hold dominion over Jerusalem and Israel throughout "the times of the Gentiles" which commenced with Nebuchadnezzar's conquest of Judah. The fourth and final beast is Rome, an amalgam of all the evil attributes of the previous three beasts, she rose from the sea of nations into an empire that will rule over "many waters . . . peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues" to the consummation.
Revelation 13:1-3: "And the dragon [Satan] stood upon the sand of the sea [after being cast down to earth at the close of the Gentile dispensation], and I . . . (insert your name) . . . saw a beast rise up out of the sea [or mass of people (Revelation 17:1, 15)], having seven heads and ten horns, and ten crowns upon his horns [Papal Rome], and upon his heads names of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like a leopard [Greece], and his feet as the feet of a bear [Medo-Persia], and his mouth as the mouth of a lion [Babylon]: and the dragon [Satan] gave him his power, and his throne [Vatican City State], and great authority. And one of his heads was wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed [in Papal Rome]: and all the world wondered after the beast".
Daniel 7:19-26: "I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all of the others, exceedingly dreadful, with iron teeth and bronze claws which devoured and tore in pieces, trampling the remains of its victims to death with its feet; and concerning the ten horns that were on its head, and of the other horn which came up and before whom three of them felleven that [little papal] horn that had eyes and a mouth that demanded absolute obedience [as it claimed dominion over heaven, earth and a non-existent purgatory], whose appearance was more authoritarian than his fellows (Revelation 13:4-8). As I looked, this horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them until the Ancient of days came, and dominion was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came for the saints to possess the Kingdom".
I believe the "one" who revealed the interpretation of these dreams to Daniel was William Branham because the revelation was sealed to "the time of the end . . . but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel the mystery of God should be finished" (Daniel 12:4; 9; Revelation 10:7). God revealed it to Jesus Christ alone after He ascended from the Mount of Olives (Matthew 24:36). Nineteen hundred and thirty-three years later, after the close of the Seventh Church Age in 1963, He opened the Book of Life and revealed the mystery of its Seven Seals to His angel William Branham in "the time of the end" (Revelation 1:1; 5:1-7). In the vision Brother Branham explained to Daniel:
"The fourth beast will be the fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms [as it will be the brutal Holy Judaeo-Roman Church Empire], that will devour the whole earth [in Lucifer's NWO], and trample it down, and break it to pieces. For out of its ten horns ten kingdoms shall arise [the Alamani (Germany), Franks (France), Saxons (English), Visgoths (Spain), Burgundians (Switzerland), Lombards (Italy), Seuvi (Portuguese), and three (Germanic tribes, the Vandals, Ostrogoths and Heruli. These are the royal houses into which the Imperial Roman Empire divided after the fall of the last emperor Romulus Augustulus in AD476. These ten horns or powers are the Black Nobility and correspond to the ten toes symbolized in the image of Nebuchadnezzar's dream that will "give their power and strength to the beast" throughout the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Revelation 17:12-17)], and another shall rise after them [the pope]; he shall be diverse from the former kings, and shall put down three of them [the Vandals, Ostrogoths and Heruli for refusing Rome's trinity of gods and adhering to Arianism]. And the [pope] shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear down the saints of the Most High, and think to change the sacred seasons and the Law [in "the time of Jacob's trouble" so the Seventh Day Adventists are speculating ahead of time]: and they will be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time [that is, until the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week]. Then the judgment shall sit, and his dominion shall be taken away, to be consumed and destroyed for all time".
As an aside to our subject, Daniel exposes the Jewish hoax of the British Israel/Christian Identity theory which claims the peoples of Britain and European are the "lost" ten Tribes of Israel (which were never "lost" as the Bible tells us where they are and whence they will return to the land of the Covenant). The Imperial and Papal Judaeo-Roman Empires are the fourth beast that has always been the enemy of Israel like the Edomite self-styled Jews (Genesis 27:39-41). Its ten horns cannot be the ten Tribes of Israel and also the ten toes of Nebuchadnezzar's dream which the Lord will utterly destroy. Furthermore, any Israelite living outside the land is without the Covenant. God deals with Israel as a nation in the land of the Covenant and He cannot deal with Israel until the last saint predestinated to Christ's Church is born again, meanwhile Israel is spiritually blind (Romans 11:25). Three and a half years after the first resurrection of Christ's Church the nation of Israel will be born-again in one day, all 144,000 of them, then martyred by the fourth beast (Isaiah 66:8; Revelation 7:3-8; 15:2-4).
"The non-elect whose names were not written in the Lamb's Book of Life from the foundation of the world will wonder after the beast when they see the twenty-first century revival of the Holy Roman Empire, and pay homage to the dragon [Satan] who empowered the beast: and serve the beast and his (once) Protestant image and receive her doctrine, which is to take the mark of the beast, or die! Pondering: Who can compare with the beast? Who is able to make war with him" (Revelation 13:3-8, 16-18). What is a fallen angel but one who has not maintained his estate in the Word of God and holiness but abandoned his life of faith and prayer for the social acceptability of denominationalism? Many ministers are trying to do God a service that is not His will. They are souls imprisoned now, enchained by darkness until the Day of Judgment, and know it not (II Peter 2:4; Jude 6; Revelation 3:17-20). These are the "stars of heaven that fall to earth" at the opening of the Sixth Seal (Newsletter #449; Revelation 6:12-13; Isaiah 34:4; Matthew 24:29).
After His crucifixion, Jesus descended to the fifth dimension and continued ministering. His testimony vindicated the Old Testament saints but condemned the unbelievers who having crossed the line from mercy to judgment had their names removed from the Book of Life and were lost. Now His end-time Bride is preaching, perchance some hearing might be "plucked as a brand from the fire," sadly, most are souls in prison (I Peter 3:13-20; Revelation 10:8-11). Titus 3:9-11: "Avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the Law; for they are unprofitable and vain. A man who is a heretic after the first and second admonition reject; knowing that he who is such is subverted, and sins, being condemned of himself" (Hosea 4:6; Luke 10:16; Hebrews 6:8). God is known by revelation from Above, not debate from below.
Revelation 17:7-10 explains Rome's transformation from a purely temporal power to a universal religious and militant political power portrayed as a womanthe Judaeo-Roman church called "the great whore with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication"in contrast to Christ's Bride who is a chaste virgin to the Word. The harlot church is portrayed seated on or controlling the beast full of the blasphemous names of her harlot daughtersLutheran, Presbyterian, Methodist, Baptist, Pentecostal, etc., (in a World Council of Churches) and abominations of the earth such as Islam, Free Masonry, Jesuitism, Opus Dei; Knights Templars, Knights of Malta, and Knights of Columbus. In her hand she holds the magical means of her dominion and glory, the golden cup of the Lord's Supper and Christian fellowship, but it is full of the abominations of her idolatry, and the woman is "drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus!"
The angel with the Seventh Vial in Revelation 17 is William Branham, the angel to the Seventh Church Age; we know this because the mystery of the Book was sealed from the foundation of the world and revealed only to the seventh angel at the time of the end (Revelation 1:1; 10:4, 7). Throughout this Book John represents Christ's end-time Bride to whom Brother Branham was sent to preach into the 'rapture.' His interpretation of the vision of verses 3-6 explains the causes and justification of God's judgment upon MYSTERY BABYLON (II Thessalonians 2:7-8) in chapters 18 and 19. In the vision this woman is the false church which is Papal Rome; the beast is the Roman Empire under its final Satan-incarnate Papal head. In his explanation, the angel covers the entire history of both the woman and the fourth beast. "The woman which you saw is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth"; the beast represents the Roman Empire in all of its forms and under all of its heads.
The beast is first subject to the woman who healed it of its deadly wound (Revelation 13:3), and it was only in the medieval saintly seeming of subservience to the woman and concordats, for instance, that he could make his appearance again. Thus in Revelation 17:3 the woman distinctively dressed in the colours of a Roman ecclesiastical dignitary is portrayed as seated upon or controlling the beast. And whereas her superstitions and creeds had bound the demonic spirits of Imperial Rome which had apparently vanished, the absolutism of the woman's nicolaitane hierarchy has promoted the growth of absolutism to despotism and loosed 200,000,000 demons whose march to world hegemony had been halted at the River Euphrates. They were loosed from her religious authority by the dictators of the world, Mussolini, Hitler and Stalin and set upon the Jews to prepare the way of the kings of the east. Brother Branham said, "Notice Satan's trinity: same person coming, just incarnate from one to the other. That's the way them bugs did, them worms, one to the other [Joel 1:4], (exactly), Nicolaitane, spiritual antichrist; Pope, false prophet; beast, the Devil himself incarnate. . . Now, you keep that on your mind now. When you follow this, you're going to see these riders [through the Gentile dispensation in Revelation 6:1-8] come right straight up to that [beast of the revived Roman Empire who rides to perdition with his followers]" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 202:1). Through Vatican II and World Council of Churches ecumenism "men have turned their ears away from the truth unto fables"; all churches have apostatized and Christ is calling His end-time Bride in this "half hour of silence in heaven" (II Timothy 4:4; Revelation 3:17-20; 8:1; Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4). Rome's objective is to unite east and west into one totalitarian world order under her Vicar of Christ regardless of their beliefs and evangelize her trinitarian gods, her "mark of the beast," at the point of a sword as in the Dark Ages when Gregory II boasted: "All the kings of the West reverence the Pope as a god on Earth".
Before his untimely death in 1999, Jewish former Jesuit Malachi Martin who was with Vatican intelligence assessing things in Israel and an adviser to three popes told Uri Dowbenko, "I think that from the very start John Paul II for whatever reasons has sought after one thing and one thing only. The formation of what now appears to be in his mind, a universal assemblage of Catholics at the core; grouped with them the Protestant denominations, sects and churches; grouped around them believing Jews, believing Muslims, believing Hindus, believing Buddhists. And that would be a universal religious assembly that could have a powerful dynamic kick in civilization and in solving the problems of men and women today. That is the only thing you can really say this man has sought heart and soul and body with all his traveling. . ." (Uri Dowbenko, Bushwhacked: Inside Stories of True Conspiracy, ISBN 0971004218, p. 213).
The present global apostasy will enable a reversal of the relationship between the beast and the woman when Satan is cast down to earth at the end of the Gentile dispensation (Revelation 12:7-13), for he will incarnate the false prophet or pope who is thereafter called the beast, and rule the woman using her to establish one world government by ruling the united States of America. Revelation 17:8 set in the immediate future under the Seventh Trumpet and Sixth Seal describes, the Papal Roman Empire as a beast with ten horns and seven heads controlled by the woman. "The beast that you saw was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the pit of the abyss (Revelation 9:11), and go into perdition: and all who dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is." As Brother Branham explained, the beast is Rome's last pope—one dies and another is appointed to continue the Judaeo-Roman system of false worship. "Here is something for wise heads to consider: the seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits, and they represent seven kings [who have deified themselves]: five [Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius] are fallen, and one [Nero—the last relative of the Caesars under whose reign Vespasian commenced the siege of Jerusalem (Matthew 24:15-21)] was [ruling at the start of the Ephesian Church Age], and the other [Galba] is not yet come; and when he comes, he must reign a short space [seven months and six days]. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth [king, the last Pope who will be Satan incarnate], and is of the seven, and goes to perdition".
As the angel explains, the fourth beast or Roman Empire that was mortally wounded in Revelation 13:3 and "was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the abyss, and go into perdition." Although the woman and the beast are at enmity, church and state unite in a Papal Roman Empire, a marriage of mutual convenience in which the beast or Roman empire eventually takes headship over the woman.
His wonderful reappearance in the gradual evolution of the European Union has induced the Judaeo-Roman woman to trust herself to him, but her reliance on the irresistible power of evil in partnership with the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Khazar Jews of the ten-horned Black Nobility to glorify herself in the apparent invincibility of the beast of empire (Revelation 13:4; 18:7) enflames their hatred of her. The kings in openly antichristian coalition share complete imperial power together with her hypocritically disguised antichristianity in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. But when she abrogates her covenant with the International banksters in the midst of the week the full expression of their hatred of the woman and Christianity is seen where they turn the tables on the woman that rode or controlled them. The purpose of God is visible in the "one mind and unanimity of these kings as when Caiaphas and Pilate were made to subserve His Providence (John 11:51; 19:11). Revelation 17:16: "the ten horns that you saw AND the beast [in shifting their allegiance to Judaeo-Communist Russia] will hate the whore, and make her desolate and naked, and eat her flesh, and burn her with nuclear fire. For God has put it into their hearts to work His purpose, and to act harmoniously in handing their royal authority to the beast until the Words of God should be fulfilled" (Revelation 17:16; 18:17-20).
Do you see the distinction between the woman which is Rome and the false church, the beast which is the power of the Roman Empire, and Satan who is a spirit, the king of the 200,000,000 demons of Imperial Rome and many more demons of Papal Rome, and Satan the god of this evil age who rules and leads the Judaeo-Roman church and state to perdition (II Thessalonians 2:3; Revelation 6:8; 9:11, 17:8, 11)?
After the nuclear annihilation of Vatican City State and the united States of America, we see "the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him that sat on the horse, and against His army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his [once Protestant] image. These were both cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the rest were slain by the sword that issued from the mouth of the One mounted on the horse; and all the fowls were filled with their flesh" (Revelation 19:19-21).
Earthquakes at the close of the Gentile dispensation will sink Los Angeles (Revelation 18:21-24), divide the Mount of Olives and destroy the Mosque of Omar (Zechariah 14:4-5; Matthew 24:15), igniting the "hot" stage of a brief World War III in which Russia will attack and invade the United States. Satan, then incarnate in the Pope, will establish consensus among the world's religions which all have representatives in the Vatican and restore peace under Judaeo-Roman world government. This is when the inhabitants of earth will "worship the dragon [Satan] who gave power to the beast: and they will worship the beast, saying: Who can compare with the beast? Who is able to make war with him"?
Marshal law will be enforced worldwide following this upset of nature involving earthquakes of unprecedented magnitude, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis. Christ's Church and the foolish virgin will become hated as the love of God will constrain us to testify, explaining by the Scripture the significance of these events and emphasizing the absolute necessity of refusing the doctrine of and service to Rome and her apostate (once) Protestant daughters. The carnal mind will consider this sedition as their religious institutions administer disaster relief worldwide. As Brother Branham explained, "Rome is not going it alone. Her daughters are right with her and she will take over absolute authority by the World Council of Churches. This may seem farfetched to some but actually it is very plain for all to see because right now the churches are controlling politics and at the opportune time will manifest exactly how great is that control. This ecumenical move will end up with Rome at the head even though the people did not envision it that way. This is so because in Revelation 17:3-6 it states that the whore, Mystery Babylon is seated on the beast. She is controlling the last or fourth empire. This Roman Church is doing that. With the world church system under her Rome will be controlling, and this image (church system) will be obedient to Rome because Rome controls the gold of the world. Thus all the people have to belong to the world church system or be at the mercy of the elements for they cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast in the hand or head. This mark in the head means that they will have to take the doctrine of the world church system which is trinitarianism, etc., and the mark in the hand which means to do the will of the world church. With this great power the church systems will persecute the true Bride. This image will try to keep the Bride from preaching and teaching, etc. Her ministers will be forbidden to give comfort and truth to the people who need it. But before the Antichrist (in person) takes over this complete world system of churches the true church will be taken away from this world to be with the Lord. God will catch away His Bride for the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 376:1).
It is in this time of unprecedented trouble that Satan is cast down to earth and incarnates the pope of Rome, and through her association with Rothschild Rome will control the gold of the world:
The Treaty of Paris of 1763 designated King George III "Arch-Treasurer and Prince Elector of the Holy Roman Empire." And "according to the Encyclopedia Judaica the Rothschilds bear the title "Guardians of the Vatican Treasury." The Vatican Treasury, of course, holds the imperial wealth of Rome. Imperial wealth grows in proportion to its victories in waras the Jesuit empowerment Regimini militantis ecclesiae implies, the Church-at-War is more necessary than the Church-at-Peace. According to H. Russell Robinson's illustrated Armour of Imperial Rome, Caesarean soldiers protect themselves in battle with shields painted red. Since the soldiery is the State's most valuable resource (the Council of Trent admitted this in preferring the Jesuits to all other religious orders), it is easy to understand why the red shield was identified with the very life of the Church. Hence, the appropriateness of the name Rothschild, German for "red shield." The appointment of Rothschild gave the black papacy absolute financial privacy and secrecy. [Less than two generations after the Jews were expelled from Spain they instituted the Society of Jesus, or Jesuits, a Jewish organization whose first Father General was the Jew Ignatius Loyola. The second and third Fathers General were also Jews. Within its first hundred years the Jesuits were in clandestine control of virtually all political activity in Europe, partly by using the confessional to extract information, and it remains the world's most efficient intelligence organ and hold that holy goal justifies foul means]. Who would ever search a family of orthodox Jews for the key to the wealth of the Roman Catholic Church? I believe this appointment explains why the House of Rothschild is famous for helping nations go to war. It is fascinating that, as Meyer Rothschild's sons grew into the family business, the firm took on the title Meyer Amschel Rothschild und Sohne, which gives us the notariqon, MARS. Isn't Mars the Roman God of War, whose heavenly manifestation is "the red planet"? There is powerful cabalah here, and there's hardly an acre of inhabitable earth that hasn't been affected by it in some way (Tupper Saussy, Rulers of Evil. p. 160-161).
In the final words of his book The Vatican Empire, Nino Lo Bello states, "While the Vatican has remained secretive about its fiscal policy, it has never believed that the investment of Church money was either illegal, objectionable in principle, or contrary to good conscience. In seeking to resolve the conflict between that which is to be rendered to God and that which is to be rendered to Caesar, the Vatican has developed its own special modus vivendi between the sacred and the secular. The view of the pope as a kind of chairman of the board may shock some readers. But let us remember that the Vatican is a remarkable, centuries-old institution, and that, when it comes to money, it is one that is fully in tune with the spirit of the times."
"This writer foresees the day, perhaps a thousand years from now, when the Vatican will cease functioning as a religious institution and take up, on a full-time basis, the duties of a large-scale business corporation. The transition will not be as difficult to effectuate as one might suspect. For just as Catholicism will decline and eventually withdraw from the ranks of the major religions, so, too, will Church money find its way into nearly every area of the free world's economy. Then, at last, the tycoon on the Tiber will shed the mantle of piety; then, at last, the Vatican will expose the full extent of its financial interests" (Nino Lo Bello, The Vatican Empire, p. 185-186).
This will be fatally apparent to all dissenters during Daniel's Seventieth Week when the beast of the Roman Empire ascends from the abyss, and takes headship over the woman, burning her with atomic fire after the midst of the week (Revelation 13:8,16-18; 18:24). Rome is a beast in sheep's clothing, her false religion merely a "front" whereby she has disarmed the world whilst she steals the absolute power of one world government.
The Vatican owns hundreds of banking companies in its own right but likes to maintain its funds in numbered Swiss bank accounts, one reason . . . is because the Swiss franc can provide protection against inflation and devaluation . . . the Swiss franc is guaranteed up to 130 percent by gold. So, because Switzerland's money is "hard money," the Vatican holds francs and exchanges them for the legal tender of another country when needed" (Ibid, pp.114-119).
Early in the 19th century the Pope approached the Rothschilds to borrow money. The Rothschilds were very friendly with the Pope, causing one journalist to sarcastically say "Rothschild has kissed the hand of the Pope. . . Order has at last been re-established" (Derek Wilson, Rothschild: The Wealth and Power of a Dynasty, p. 101).
Researcher Eustace Mullins writes that the Rothschilds took over all the financial operations of the worldwide Catholic Church in 1823 (The Curse of Canaan, p.125). Today the large banking and financial business of the Catholic Church is an extensive system interlocked with the Rothschilds and the rest of the International Banking system. The great wealth of the Russian Czars was entrusted to the Rothschilds, $35 million with the Rothschild's of England, and $80 million in the Rothschild's Paris bank. The Rothschilds financed the Russian Revolution which confiscated vast portions of the Orthodox Church's wealth. They have been able to prevent (due to their power) the legitimate heirs of the Czars' fortune to withdraw a penny of the millions deposited in a variety of their banks. The Mountbattens, who are related to the Rothschilds, led the court battles to prevent the claimants from withdrawing any of the fortune. In other words, the money they invested in the Russian Revolution, was not only paid back directly by the Bolshevists in millions of dollars of gold, but by grabbing the huge deposits of the Czars' wealth, the Rothschilds gained what is now worth over $50 Billions (Eustace Mullins, The World Order, p. 5).
"A number of rich Catholics undertook to organize a competitor bank to rival the Rothschild power . . . sometime about 1830. The Rothschilds crushed it. The Jewish Encyclopedia (Vol. 2, p. 497) admits that: "Following the failure of the Catholic bank, Unione Generale, leaving the Rothschilds still more absolutely the undisputed leaders of French finance, but leaving also a legacy of hatred which had much influence on the growth of the anti-Semitic movement in France."
It says further: "It is a somewhat curious sequel to the attempt to set up a Catholic competitor to the Rothschilds that at the present time (1905) the latter are the guardians of the papal treasure."
If this latter statement is true the Rothschilds control in addition to their own fortune the immense liquid resource of the Catholic Church, which is second only to the Rothschilds in wealth and power. It is probably not literally true since the private banking firm did not do commercial banking. It is likely that the papal treasure is deposited with the Bank of England or some other bank "front," but even so it contributes to the Rothschild power" (George Armstrong, Rothschild Money Trust, p. 42). (Prior to 1946 the Bank of England was a Rothschild bank. Newsletters #171 and #269).
The earthquake that sinks Los Angeles will cause the collapse of the US dollar, which is the currency of world trade. This will bankrupt nations, multinational and small corporations, and ruin the International banksters whose wealth is debit money in the form of electronic records and worthless paper such as mortgages on property that will instantly depreciate to a fraction of its pre-earthquake valuation. In addition, bonds, shares and financial instruments such as superannuation, insurance and assurance policies will be worthless unless the US dollar is refinanced.
Brother Branham said, "You watch for a depression, brother. You think you've seen something; you just wait after while. You haven't seen nothing" (Jezebel Religion, p. 22:100). Rome with her control of the world's gold will reach a seven-year covenant with the International Jewish banksters to refinance the US dollar. As prophesied in Daniel 9:27, "The prince from Rome (Daniel 9:26) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations [forcing the mark of the beast] he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolator".
Revelation 13:5-6: "the beast was given a mouth to speak proud words and blasphemies, and granted authority to control the earth for forty-two months. Throughout this time he blasphemed against God, and against His Name, and His abode, and those who dwell in heaven." That is, during the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week while Israel's two prophets are ministering the Feast of the Trumpets to an election of blood Israelites.
It is important at this point that we distinguish the secular beast, which is a revivified Holy Roman Empire comprising the ten kings or Black Nobility families that once ruled the ten nation states into which, upon its demise Rome fragmented, from its ecclesiastical partner, the Great Whore or Roman Catholic church that rides upon or controls this beast (Revelation 17:3). In this age of educated apostasy neither the nobility nor commoners can long be intimidated by Roman superstitions without a quid pro quo, and will not allow the hubris of religious dignitaries to overcome sound reason, so when Rome breaks her covenant, the secular beast and these ten kings will hate the Roman Catholic church and burn Vatican City State off the face of the earth by atomic fire (Revelation 17:16; 18:18). All religion and Communism are to be destroyed, and replaced by the pure Luciferian doctrine.
The Bible is the story of God and Lucifer incarnating themselves into two kingdoms, one imparting eternal Life through faith and free will by His Holy Spirit, the other bringing death through indoctrination and coercion by his lying spirit. Satan, who is called the dragon or great serpent (Revelation 20:2), established his earthly headquarters in Babylon, whence it moved to Pergamum, then to Rome. But when he is cast down from heaven and incarnates the pope or false prophet he will be called the beast and headquartered in Jerusalem (Revelation 13:3-6, 17-18; 14:9-11; 17:10-11; Daniel 11:45).
Considering Islam's third most holy place, the Dome of the Rock situated on the Temple site is coveted by Rome and required by the City of London for its end-game, their unprovoked hatred for Islam, shared by the (once) Protestant churches and prosecuted by the military forces of 'the City,' seems quite rational. But if Roman Catholics and so-called Protestants read Genesis 16:11-12 they would see that Ishmael is caught up in so much internal discord, thanks to 'the City,' he is no threat, and that war on 'terror' is not "about oil stupid," but Satan's ambition to usurp David's greater Son and relocate his headquarters from Rome to Mount Moriah where God met with the congregation of ancient Israel in the temple, north of Mount Zion, "the City of the great King" (Isaiah 14:12-14; Psalms 48:2).
At this time the two horns of the lamb-like beast from the earth, the secular and spiritual powers of the United States and World Council of Churches, will unite church and state into an image of the beast of the revived Holy Roman Empire, a sort of false prophet (Revelation 13:11-15; 16:13; 19:20; 20:10). This image to the beast will "perform unimaginable miracles, making [nuclear] fire descend from heaven onto earth in the sight of men [Hiroshima and Nagasaki], by this demonstration of ruthless power authorized by Rome, he deceives all who live on earth, telling them that they should make a [pseudo-Protestant] image to the Roman beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he was allowed to give life to the image of the beast that the image of the beast should demand and ensure that all who do not obey the image of the beast are killed." The United States under its last lawful president George II and the alien usurper Obama has lied like Papal Rome and exercised all the power of Imperial Rome in cruel torture, rape and rapine, and is engaging nuclear war upon third world nations in practice for the great tribulation when it will force the mark of the first beast which will control the bankrupt United States by the power of gold with which it refinances the US dollar, makes merchandise of the wealth of nations, slaves, and the souls of men (Revelation 13:13-15; 18:11-17).
Revelation 13:14 and 19:20 identify the image of the beast as a type of false prophet to Empire: the persuasive power of her blooded military enables the United States to prophesybullyher allies and foes to fulfill the will of the 'hidden hand' that pulls her strings. Reflect for a moment on her many crimes in World Wars I and II, Vietnam, Korea, Indonesia, Egypt, Lebanon, Grenada, Panama, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq, Pakistan, Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen and Libya, with Syria, Iran, North Korea, China and Russia listed for "humanitarian war" followed by Hegelian party political sham democracy. Who can make war with the (once) Protestant image of the beast? Yet the United States is either our homeland (gulp), our domineering "ally" (like it or die), or the belligerent Big Brother of "those who are not for us are against us" (to quote George II). Do you see the ruthless partnership conjured by the MoneyPower of the City of London and the world church system? Satan has entrapped them both, desperate to continue their tottering delusions of banking and religious sleight-of-hand. Jesus Messiah foretold when Satan has used them to the max he will betray both, and they will precede him to the abyss and follow him into the lake of Fire (Revelation 6:8; 19:20).
In antithesis to John 16:13-15, this apostate (once) Protestant antitypical false prophet speaks of himself but commands all men to worship the first beast. Brother Branham said that the false prophet started with the first pope. But when the last pope is incarnate, he is called the beast. Then the United States in union with the World Council of (once Protestant) Churches as the image unto the first beast will mimic the last false prophet by gathering, indeed forcing, "the kings of the earth and of the whole world to the battle of Armageddon" (Revelation 16:14; 17:14; 19:20). East against West, Judaeo-Communism against Judaeo-Catholicism, unclean spirits against unclean spirits, destined for the lake of Fire.
The terrorists R us: the United States military and their allies will force the mark of the beast in behalf of Rome and her apostate (once) Protestant daughters. After the day of grace is fulfilled and the true Church has been at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb for three years they will force a worldwide revival of 'converts'! Historically Rome evangelizes with the sword; in South and Central America infants and babies were baptized then slain (Revelation 13:10). As I speak her US image is honing her evangelistic skills establishing 'democracy' out of the barrel of a gun. Quoting George II, could this be why "they hate our freedom"? Jesus said: "The US beast that came up out of the earth as a peace-loving lamb with two horns signifying the separation of Church and state, NOW speaks like the dragon [Satan]." The late Ayatollah Khomeini certainly understood this Bible prophecy.
Various researchers point out that all forty-four Presidents of the USA are distantly related Black Nobility. The odds of all forty-four Presidents being related cannot be coincidence. The true family name of England's Monarch is not Windsor but Guelph, and like other Black Nobility they are Khazars. Thirty-three can be traced back to the bloodline of Charlemagne, crowned Holy Roman Emperor by Pope Leo III in 800, the inaugural head of an empire that would last over a millennium and is rising again!
When the Holy Spirit is taken from earth in the "rapture" or resurrection and translation of the Church, "that man of sin, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped so that he as God sits in the temple of God showing himself that he is God" will be revealed to the apostate world (II Thessalonians 2:3-7). As the one responsible for bringing a new world order out of the chaos of World War III the first world president "sits" as by right of one upon whom a kingdom has been confirmed, occupying the place of power and majesty in opposition to Him who "sits on the right hand of the Majesty on high" (Hebrews 1:3), and who shall come to "sit" there where the usurper has sat (Matthew 26:64). "In the temple of God," clearly shows us that the grand Antichrist arises from within the world church system. "By flatteries" he will cause men from around the earth (Daniel 11:32-45; Revelation 11:10), Jews and apostates of the "the tribes" of Israel in the "city where our Lord was crucified,"(Revelation 11:8-9) to own him as their long-looked-for Messiah until the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week when he breaks his covenant with the International Jews and usurps divine honors.
Revelation is a Book of symbols: Satan impersonates these symbols and the Work they represent. To illustrate: four living creatures (Gk. 'zoon') by four Gospels guard but call Christ's Bride into God's Presence by the mystery of the Seal for their Age. Under the Old Testament they represented the four tribal groups of Israel who camped around the Tabernacle in the wilderness "to keep the way of the Tree of Life." Each demands the evidence of faith in the present Truth before granting the believer permission to advance. In our dispensation we enter by the northern gate which is guarded by the Gospel of John, the living creature with the face of an Eagle, providing our faith is in concord with the testimony of the Gospels guarding the other three gates.
Satan's counterpart to the four living creatures is the brutal, venomous and untamable wild beasts (Gk. 'therion') of Daniel 7:1-8 which signify the four Gentile world empires that rule over Israel from the overthrow of Judah to the restoration of the kingdom to Israel at the birth of the nation in one day by faith in Christ's 'parousia' Coming and the consummation. These four beasts have worked "to weaken the nations" and by violence establish the totalitarian one world government Satan offered to Jesus in Matthew 4:8-9. A beast represents a power and although the mask of the beast changes with his different acts the spirit that rode the white, red and black horses is the power riding the pale horse to perdition today. When the Sixth Seal opens and Satan, cast down from heaven to the sea shore the beast will ascend from the abyss in the fullness of his power exercised in PART by the beasts of Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Imperial Rome. That power will manifest in the beast of Papal Rome which is "diverse from all kingdoms, and will devour the whole earth [in one world government], [and tread it down, and break it in pieces." Papal Rome is the "little horn" with "eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things" (Daniel 7:8, 23; Revelation 12:7 13:3; 17:8).
Christ is typed as a beast, a lamb so gentle the dove of like nature is not afraid to light on Him. In Revelation 9:1-2, Satan is typed as the beast from the bottomless pit who will evict the demons from the pope and incarnate "that man of sin, the son of perdition." Rome's incarnate pope is introduced without explanation as "the beast from the bottomless pit" (Revelation 11:7) because he had already been described in Daniel 7:3, 11, 20-25 as the leader of the fourth Gentile world empire (Revelation 13:1-4; 17:8).
Christ and Satan will meet at the battle of Armageddon. Called "the Word of God"eternal "Life"and riding His pure white horse, Christ is followed by the vindicated Word of His resurrected saints also on white horses of the power of the unadulterated Word (I Corinthians 15:48; Revelation 19:14; 22:18-19). Riding his pale sickly green-coloured horse, Satan is called "Death, and Hell followed with him" to perdition (Revelation 6:8; 17:8; 19:19-20; 20:10).
The armies following Satan to perdition or total loss in the lake of Fire are the multitudes without the Seal of God who partake in the confederation of apostasy receive the mark of the beast. The "saved" who refuse, will be martyred. Those who reject our witness to the fullness of the Word are souls imprisoned now. By rejecting the Seal of God they have crossed from mercy to judgment; their names are blotted from the Book of Life, they bear the mark of the beast "and know it not" (Revelation 3:17-20).
When Jesus incarnates Himself into His people, His Life lives in them (John 17:21). John 14:19-20, 12, "Yet a little while, and the world will no longer see Me; but you will see me: because I live in you, you will live My Life. In the day in which you receive My Life you shall know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. . . In solemn truth I assure you, He who believes in me will also do the works that I do, and greater works than these will he do; because I go to the Father." Likewise, when Satan is incarnate in his church, he has them bound by his power and they do the same works he did. Satan was a murderer and liar in the beginning. And as the false prophet prophesies his followers into the mark of the beast they give themselves over to strong delusions to believe his lie and be damned by it. Now they too are liars, having a form of godliness but denying the revealed Word of God. Watch the third pull when our dispensation has ended and we are squeezed out of society. Brother Branham said, "It'll be absolutely to the total lost, but it will be for the Bride and the church" (Look Away to Jesus, p. 7:49).
Revelation 19:20-21, "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles in his presence, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant was slain with the sword of Him that sat upon the horse, which Sword proceeded out of His mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh".
The question is who do the beast and the false prophet represent at this point in time? The beast is not Satan himself, for he is not cast into the Lake of Fire until Revelation 20:10, "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever." This beast cannot be the Great Harlot, for she was judged in chapter 17 and blasted from the face of the earth in chapter 18 (Revelation 19:1-3) under the curse of the Seventh Vial of chapter 16:19. I do not see him as the pope since the secular heads of the revived Roman Empire have bombed Vatican City, and although he was ruling from Jerusalem it seems unlikely that they would have allowed the man to escape alive. Besides, the pope cannot now be the false prophet: that phase of Satan's incarnation was fulfilled at the close of the Gentile dispensation.
Surely this false prophet is the second beast that rose up from the earth to become the united States of America in apostate union with the federation of (once) Protestant churches to form an image unto Rome and prophesy the world into obeisance to her trinitarian religion and itself on pain of death as historically the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church imposed its religion and will by force of arms.
I consider it unlikely the beast or this false prophet of Revelation 19:20-21 are men. According to Daniel 7:11, "I watched because of the boasting of the little horn [pope]: I watched until the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame." This beast is the fourth Gentile world empire, whose ten kings have by this time razed the Vatican. According to Daniel 2:40-45 and 9:27, secular Rome rules the world until the consummation when she is slain by the Word of God who allows Communism to rise up and destroy her as He allowed Nebuchadnezzar to destroy apostate Judea.
Satan's objective is to incarnate a people for a kingdom that would usurp the Kingdom or Body of Christ, which is His Church. So the body of the fourth beast is those who have taken His mark of trinitarian worship, while the false prophet is those who have taken the mark in their right hand by serving or worshiping the image of the Beast. Can it be the image of the beast that will persecute the elect Israelites and foolish virgin as Rome persecuted the Church Age saints?
Revelation 14:9-13: "The angel Brother Branham followed the angels Luther and Wesley, saying with a loud voice: If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, he shall drink of the wine of His indignation; and will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever: and they who worship the beast and his image or receive the mark of his name have no rest day nor night (Revelation 19:20). Let this encourage the saints to patiently endure trial and persecution; these are they who that keep the Commandments of God and the faith of Jesus".
Malachi 3:164:3: "They who feared the Lord spoke often of Him to each other: and the Lord listened and heard, and a Book of Remembrance was drawn up in which was recorded the names of those who feared Him and loved to think on His Name. They shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up My jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spares an obedient and dutiful son. Then you will once more distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who serves Him not."
"For, behold, the day of judgment is coming, that shall burn as a furnace; then all the proud [Brother Branham said, "like the Americans and so forth"] and all that do wickedly will be stubble, and the day that comes shall burn them up, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But for you who reverence My Name the Sun of righteousness will arise with healing in His beams [the body change]; and you shall go forth leaping like calves from the stall. And you will tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day when I act, says the Lord of hosts." (Also see Matthew 3:12; 13:42, 50; Acts 1:6; 3:19-26).
Organized religion was never of God. The spirit of fornication is the spirit of organization and all organizational systems will burn with the whore as the woman Eve should have been burnt with the Serpent (Leviticus 21:9). Only Jezebel, Rome, and her false prophet husband Ahab the beast power of Empire, are judged at the end of the great tribulation. All others will stand trial at the White Throne Judgment after the Millennium and the general resurrection.
Revelation 2:21-23: "I gave the Jezebel [the Judaeo-Roman Catholic Church], space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children [the Protestant denominations] with death; and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the reins and hearts: and I will give to every one of you according to your works".
