NATO rehearses for War in the Arctic

USS Connecticut surfaces through Arctic iceApril 23, 2012 — To the world’s military leaders, the debate over climate change is long over. They are preparing for a new kind of Cold War in the Arctic, anticipating that rising temperatures there will open up a treasure trove of resources and long-dreamed-of sea-lanes... Cold Response 2012 was conducted from March 12-21 primarily in Norway but also in Sweden with the participation of 16,300 troops from fifteen nations as part of full spectrum—air, sea, infantry and special forces—maneuvers against the backdrop of the past three years’ new scramble for the Arctic. . . Four of the five Arctic claimants—the United States, Canada, Norway and Denmark—are members of NATO. The other, Russia, is not.

"The importance of why we need forces capable of operating in the Arctic is very basic power projection—to make a show to other players in the international community that we are an Arctic nation, and we are going to protect our interests in the Arctic Circle" . . . "Russia has all grounds for concern given that ships equipped with the…Aegis Combat System can be deployed in the Arctic" . . . The Western campaign for global dominance has reached the top of the world.

Mossad/CIA murdered US Troops in Iraq

January 21, 2011 — Back in 2006 a story made its rounds through the internet and the worlds media that Israeli snipers were killing US Troops in Iraq and pinning the blame on "insurgents" in order to enrage American troops so that the slaughter continued. After a thorough investigation into this older story there is more than enough evidence to point to the fact that Mossad (with the CIA) is operating inside Iraq and has been for years. . .

The CIA/Mossad are masters at false flag operations, e.g., The Oklahoma City bombing, the attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, the bombing of the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires, the July 7, the 9/11 attacks in New York & Washington DC, the assassination of the Prime Minister in Beirut, the bombing of the Hassan al-Askari Mosque in Samarra, Iraq, etc.

Mossad & CIA Agents freely move among US and UK troops in Iraq, and have access to top-level US intelligence. . . Because of this access, the "insurgents" (i.e., CIA/Mossad agents) know exactly where US vehicles will be and who will be inside them. This allows them to target for maximum false flag effect. . .

Whenever the CIA/Mossad carry out these false-flag operations they produce a videotape or a recording from an "unnamed source" that is "close to al-Qaeda." Sometimes they say "the claim was posted on an Internet website, but its authenticity could not be verified." These videos have been widely proven to be false and the CIA has even admitted that they faked Bin-Laden and Saddam Hussein videos. Full story:

SYRIA: UN working with NATO to provide Pretext for Intervention
UN 'Aid' Program to be used in establishing NATO 'Humanitarian Corridors'

April 21, 2012 — Recently reported in Reuters', "UN seeks Syria nod for major aid operation," the UN is seeking to bring in "aid workers" and open offices all across Syria in order to carry out what they call a "major humanitarian operation."

Syria has criticized certain nations of what is clearly the "politicizing of humanitarian aid." Fortune 500-funded US policy think-tank, the Brookings Institution has openly stated that US foreign policy would best be served by taking advantage of "gaining humanitarian access" allowing the West to "add further coercive action to its efforts" to topple the Syrian government. Specifically, Brookings foresees gaining such access may lead to establishing "safe-havens and humanitarian corridors" protected by NATO military forces, in yet another example of the "mission creep" that led to regime change in Libya. Such "creep" would give proxy militant forces unassailable positions to continue their campaign of violence against the Syrian people.

Brookings Institution's Middle East Memo #21 "Assessing Options for Regime Change (.pdf)," makes no secret that the humanitarian "responsibility to protect" is but a pretext for long-planned regime change.

Despite the UN's "peace plan" being fully rejected by both the Syrian rebels and their Western and Arab League backers who have openly pledged cash, weapons, and support for them to continue fighting, in full violation of the proposed ceasefire, the Western media has instead accused the Syrian government of failing to meet its obligations. As the West continues to fuel the violence, and if "humanitarian access" is approved, military intervention will be proposed to combat what will be claimed to be Syrian government "belligerence" . . .

Big Brother is watching: Surveillance Box to track Drivers

self-driven car of Bro. Branham's visionMarch 31, 2009 — The government is backing a project to install a "communication box" in new cars to track the whereabouts of drivers anywhere in Europe . . . Under the proposals, vehicles will emit a constant "heartbeat" revealing their location, speed and direction of travel. The EU officials behind the plan believe it will significantly reduce road accidents, congestion and carbon emissions. A consortium of manufacturers has indicated that the router device could be installed in all new cars as early as 2013. . . The messages will be picked up by other cars in the vicinity, allowing vehicles to warn each other if they are forced to break hard or swerve to avoid a hazard. The data is also picked up by detectors at the roadside and mobile phone towers. That enables the road to communicate with cars, allowing for "intelligent" traffic lights to turn green when cars are approaching or gantries on the motorway to announce changes to speed limits. . . Full story:

USA, April 19, 2012 —Legislation—already passed by the Senate and likely to be passed by the House—will impose a legal requirement that all new cars made beginning with the 2015 models be fitted with so-called Event Data Recorders... These EDRs are not new. GM and other automakers have been installing them in new cars for years—in GM’s case, since the late 1990s. What’s new is the proposed federal mandate, which would make it illegal to not have one—or (in all likelihood) to remove or disable one in a car required to have the device. . .

And naturally, they—the government, insurance companies—will be able to track your every move, noting (and recording) where you've been and when. This will create a surveillance net beyond anything that ever existed previously.

Viola. "Your" car is suddenly under the control of others. Just as "your" other (cough, hack) property—"your" home, for example—is under the control of others. It does not matter that you paid for it. Or even that you have the legal fiction of ownership. You do not control "your" property—hence it is really the property of others. You are merely allowed to use said property—under certain conditions, by the leave of the true owners—the government and its cronies in the corporatocracy . . . Full story:

The fourth of seven continuous visions the Lord showed Brother Branham showed a plastic bubble-topped car that was running down beautiful highways under remote control so that people appeared seated in this car without a steering wheel and they were playing some sort of a game to amuse themselves (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 321.5).

International Forecaster April 2012 (#6) – Gold, Silver, Economy + More

April 22, 2012 — For a company whose corporate motto is "Don't Be Evil," Google Inc. certainly has found itself at the receiving end of its share of lawsuits, claims and controversies. Still, even by Google's standards this past week has been a difficult one. . . For those unfamiliar with the Street View brouhaha . . . sniffing wi-fi networks and, supposedly by accident, private information, including emails, passwords, and any other data flowing through unencrypted networks whenever the cars were rolling by. . . Also in 2006 an ex-CIA agent went public claiming that CIA seed money had helped to get Google off the ground and that the two had maintained a "small but significant relationship" . . . Alarm bells were raised in 2010, however, when it was announced that Google was collaborating with the NSA on cybersecurity operations. . . Full story:

If I wanted America to Fail

April 23, 2012 — Barack Obama appeared on the American political scene in 1994 like a phony magician's trick. His victory in 2008 was an illusion designed to make voters believe he actually won the votes that supposedly elected him in 2008. It was an electoral smoke screen to conceal the fact that the "new voters" who cast their ballots for him were an illusion, too. He promised change. The voters forgot to ask him what type of change he had in mind. Obama is a Manchurian Candidate who was funded by Watermelons (green on the outside, communist red on the inside] to destroy this nation. Obama's "political manager," George Soros, amassed his wealth by destroying the monetary system of the countries he targets. His target? The United States. Obama sees the destruction of the United States as a win-win scenario since not only does Soros get what he paid for—the collapse of the US dollar and the destruction of the free enterprise system, but enough chaos in America that Obama can declare martial law and become an Abraham Lincoln-type dictator. . .

Comment: The video clearly demonstrates how YOUR 'democratic' government has legislated YOUR inescapable return to serfdom by placing you under the curse of law with respect to energy. In Australia the federal parliament passed the Human Rights (Parliamentary Scrutiny) Act 2011 under which all laws now passed by the parliament must be compatible with seven United Nations treaties to which Australia is a party. MPs who propose a bill must complete a statement of compatibility for human rights (Epoch Times, January 11, 2012). As none of these treaties were ever assented to by the Australian people the act is another nail in the coffin of the nation's sovereignty.

Derivatives: the Unregulated Global Casino for Banks

burning $100A derivative buys you the option (but not obligation) to buy oil in 6 months for today's price/any agreed price, hoping that oil will cost more in future. (I'll bet you it'll cost more in 6 months). Derivative can also be used as insurance, betting that a loan will or won't default before a given date. So its a big betting system, like a Casino, but instead of betting on cards and roulette, you bet on future values and performance of practically anything that holds value. The system is not regulated what-so-ever, and you can buy a derivative on an existing derivative.

Most large banks try to prevent smaller investors from gaining access to the derivative market on the basis of there being too much risk. The derivative market has blown a galactic bubble, just like the real estate bubble or stock market bubble (that's going on right now). Since there is literally no economist in the world that knows exactly how the derivative money flows or how the system works, while derivatives are traded in microseconds by computers, we really don't know what will trigger the crash, or when it will happen, but considering the global financial crisis this system is in for tough times, that will be catastrophic for the world financial system since the 9 largest banks shown below hold a total of $228.72 trillion in Derivatives—Approximately 3 times the entire world economy. No government in the world has money for this bailout. Lets take a look at what banks have the biggest Derivative Exposures and what scandals they've been lately involved in. . .

Ezekiel 33 – 34

Like Daniel and the Revelation, Ezekiel is a book of prophecy whose mysteries are veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols. Our study begins at chapter 33 which commences the second and principal part of this Book and concerns faith in Jesus Messiah, the means through which God's mercies toward an election of the blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and the glory of the nation of Israel is to be restored.

Ezekiel was called to prophesy in the fifth year from the date of his being carried away with king Jehoiachin (Jeconiah) by Nebuchadnezzar in 599BC (II Kings 24:11-15). The upper echelon and godliest of the people were among the first carried away (Jeremiah 24:1-10; Ezekiel 11:16). The ungodly were willing to do anything to remain in their native land; whereas the faithful believed God's prophets and obeyed the first summons to surrender as the only path of safety. The Chaldeans believed that with them out of the way the nation would fall to pieces of itself, and they were despised by their brethren in Judah as having no share in the temple sacrifices. Thus Ezekiel's sphere of labor was happier and less impeded by his countrymen than that of Jeremiah in the homeland. The first scene of his prophecies was by the river Chebar, which flows into the Euphrates near Circesium in south-eastern Syria (Ezekiel 1:1). His residence whither the elders came to inquire as to God's messages through him was at Tel-Abib (now Thallaba, Ezekiel 3:15). They were eager to return to Jerusalem, but he taught them that they must first return to their God.

In the twelfth year of the captivity, when fugitives from Jerusalem (Ezekiel 33:21) arrived in Chaldea, he foretells better times, the re-establishment of Israel and the triumph of God's kingdom on earth over its enemies, Seir (the Edomites), the heathen, and Gog (Ezekiel 33:1 – 39:29). After an interval of thirteen years Ezekiel received the closing vision of the order and beauty of the kingdom restored to Israel in the millennium (Ezekiel 40:1 – 48:35; Acts 1:6). As we shall see, chapters 33 to 48 pertain almost exclusively to Daniel's Seventieth Week.

The prophet's Divine mission outlined in 595BC in the vision of chapters 1-3 was remarkably similar to the vision of John. We commented on some of the parallels to Revelation and Isaiah 6 in Newsletter 732. As a silver sword representing God's Word materialized in Brother Branham's hand as He was praying in Sabino Canyon early in 1963 prior to receiving the revelation of the Seven Seals, Ezekiel received his new commission when a hand materialized and opened a scroll written within and on the backside, full of warnings and woe. Like Christ's end-time Bride (Revelation 10:8-11), Ezekiel was told to eat or become one with the Word and "Say what the tapes say. Say what the visions say" to the captives. As a watchman to the house of Israel Ezekiel was commanded to convey God's warnings as they were revealed to him. The Lord told him that after relating his experience his fellow Israelites would place him under house arrest. "And I will make your tongue cleave to the roof of your mouth so you will be dumb: you shall not be a reprover to them, for they are a rebellious house. But when I speak with you, I will open your mouth, and you shall declare, THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD; He who hears, let him hear; and he who forbears, let him forbear: for they are a rebellious house".

How like the postscript to the Messages of the angels to each Church Age. "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches," followed by the blessing promised to the saints of each Age. The preceding Message already contained correction for failing God's Word and encouragement in the new Message. Each Message was directed to both the true vine or elect Church and the false vine or reprobate churches so like God's Messages of warning and repentance delivered by Ezekiel, further reproof was unnecessary.

The following chapters contain prophecies of judgment upon Judah, Israel and Jerusalem: we rejoin Ezekiel in chapter 24 which sets the scene for today's study. In 590BC on the tenth day of the tenth month of the ninth year [of king Jehoiachin's captivity] the Word of the Lord came to Ezekiel commanding him to pantomime boiling water in a copper pitted with rust and wickedness and fill it with the choicest mutton, the meat with the bones. The caldron and its contents represent Jerusalem, City of Murderers, and he was to boil it till the meat separates from the bones; then empty the copper, burn the bones, and set the empty pot on the coals so that its copper may burn and its poisonous scum may melt and its rust be consumed. As Ezekiel increases the fire beneath the cauldron, so God will pile fuel beneath Jerusalem.

"In vain I have wearied myself; its thick rust, Jerusalem's filthy lewdness, does not go out of it by fire. I would have cleansed you and because you would not be cleansed of your filthiness, you shall not be purified until I have spent My indignation upon you. I the Lord have spoken, and I will do it, I will not relent nor show mercy. Moreover, I am about to take away your wife. Suddenly she will die. You must show no sorrow or shed tears. Let there be no wailing at her grave, do not bare your head or feet, or accept food brought by consoling friends. Ezekiel proclaimed these things in the morning and at evening his wife died. The next morning he did as the Lord had charged."

Solomon's TempleWhen asked the meaning of the pantomime and his strange behaviour, Ezekiel replied: "The Lord told me to say to the house of Israel, I will profane My Sanctuary, the pride of your strength, the delight of your eyes, and the desire of your soul; your sons and your daughters in Judea will be slaughtered by the sword. And you shall do as I have done: you may not mourn in public or weep; but you shall pine away in your iniquities, and mourn privately for the evil you have done. Thus Ezekiel is a sign to you. You will do as he has. And when that time comes you will know that I am the Lord."

"On the day I finish taking from them in Jerusalem the joy of their hearts and their glory, the delight of their eyes, and the desire of their soul, their wives and sons and their daughters, on that day a refugee from Jerusalem will commence his journey to Babylon to report the news. And on the day of his arrival your mouth shall be opened to him; you will speak, and no longer be dumb. Thus you shall be a sign for the people and they shall know that I am the Lord".

Our unchanging God vindicated Ezekiel's calling and raised faith in the exiles by the same technique He employed to raise Abraham and Sarah's faith to bear their promised son Isaac when He "discerned the thoughts and intents of their hearts" in the days of Lot. And when those abominable conditions of Sodom repeated in our day He vindicated Brother Branham's ministry by "discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart, revealing Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever" to raise faith in Christ's end-time Bride (Luke 17:28-30; Genesis 18; Hebrews 4:12; 13:8). Up to this point Ezekiel had been prophesying Jerusalem's guilt and punishment; the evil got to its worst in the overthrow of Jerusalem with the razing of God's Temple as a consequence of the sin of Zedekiah and the Jerusalemites.

Chapters 25 to 32 represent a transition from the prophecy of judgment, and the consolatory element preponderates with the prophecy of compassion and the judgment of her adversaries. In 587BC Ezekiel's Divine mission to perform the part of a watchman (Ezekiel 33:2-9) and warn the captives is renewed and in chapters 33 to 37 he is admonished of his duty to reveal to Israel his sin and hypocrisy, reprove the ministry, prophesy the destruction of Edom, and exhort Israel regarding his future hope in the unity of faith and brotherhood.

Reading from Ezekiel 33:1, "Once again a Message came to me from the Lord: Son of man, tell your people [whom he had been forbidden to address from chapter 24:26-27 when he was struck dumb until Jerusalem had been overthrown and a refugee arrived with tidings of judgment, so that from chapter 25 to 31 Ezekiel addressed Ammon, Moab, Edom, Philistia, Tyre, Sidon, and Egypt with pronouncements of judgment]: When I bring an army against a country, the people of that land choose one of their own to be a watchman. When the watchman sees the enemy coming, he sounds the alarm to warn the people. Then if those who hear the Trumpet refuse to take action, their blood will be upon their own heads [as it has been upon the Israelites since Calvary (Matthew 27:25; Psalm 69)]. Had they heeded the warning, they could have saved their lives. But if the watchman sees the enemy coming and doesn't sound the alarm to warn the people, he is responsible for their deaths. They will die in their sins, but I will charge the watchman for their deaths."

Isaiah 55:11, "The Word that goes forth from My mouth will not return to Me void but shall do what I purpose and accomplish what I commissioned." So we see God's charge to the watchmen applies to the seven Trumpet judgments that befall Israel from Pentecost to the consummation of life, and to the seven Vials that befall the foolish virgin and false church in the same eras. Hence Paul declares, "Woe to me if I preach not the Gospel" (I Corinthians 9:16).

"So, son of man, I have appointed you a watchman for the people of Israel. Therefore, listen to what I say and warn them for Me. When I announce that some wicked people are sure to die and you fail to tell them to change their ways, then they will die in their sins, and I will hold you responsible for their deaths. But if you warn them to repent and they don't repent, they will die in their sins, but you will not be responsible."

The watchman's Message to the Israelites in verses ten to twenty is the Message of justification by grace through faith. He foretells better times, of Israel's restoration, of the triumph of God's Kingdom over the natural Serpent's seed of Edom, Sidon, the spiritual Serpent's seed of the Judaeo-Roman world empire, and at last, the millennium: "O people of Israel, You are saying, Our sins are heavy upon us; we pine away with guilt! How can we live? As surely as I live, says the Lord, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked should turn from his way and live: turn, turn from your wickedness, for why will you die, O Israel? For the good works of a righteous man will not save him if he turns to sin, nor will the wicked behavior of wicked people destroy them if they repent and turn from their sins. And when I tell the wicked that he will die, but he turns from his sins and does what is just and right, as for instance, he gives back the borrower's security and returns what he has stolen, and walks the paths of righteousness, not doing evil—he will surely live and not die. None of his past sins will be brought against him, for he has turned to the good, and he will surely live."

[This puts the lie to the Jewish cult of Two Souls/replacement of souls based upon Talmudic fables and Ezekiel 18:4 while ignoring Ezekiel 18:5-9].

"Your people are saying, The Lord isn't fair, but it is they who are not fair. For again I say, when good man turns to evil, he will die. But if the wicked turns from his wickedness and does what is just and right, he will live. Yet you are saying the Lord isn't fair. But I judge each of you in accordance with your deeds."

"In the twelfth year of our captivity, on the fifth day in the tenth month, [a year and a half after the capture of the city
(Jeremiah 39:2; 52:5-6), in the eleventh year and fourth month (of Zedekiah's reign], a fugitive from Jerusalem came to me and said, The city has fallen! The previous evening the Lord had taken hold of me and restored my voice so I was able to speak when this man arrived the next morning."

"Then this Message came to me: Son of man, the scattered remnants of Judah living among the ruined cities keep saying, Abraham was only one man, yet he gained possession of the entire land. We are many, the land has surely been given us to possess. But the Lord God says: You eat meat with the blood, you worship idols, and murder. Murderers! Idolaters! Adulterers! Should the land belong to you"?

"As I live, those living in the ruins shall die by the sword. And I will send wild animals to eat those living in the open fields. Those hiding in the forts and caves will die of disease. I will completely destroy the land and demolish her pride. Her arrogant power will come to an end. The mountains of Israel will be so desolate no one will even travel through them. When I have completely destroyed the land because of their detestable sins, then they will know that I am the Lord."

"Son of man, your people are whispering behind your back saying: Come on, let us hear the prophet tell us what the Lord is saying! So they come pretending to be sincere and sit before you as [those who should be] My people. They listen to your words, but have no intention of doing what I tell them to; they talk sweetly about loving the Lord, but in their hearts they are loving their money
(Matthew 15:8-9). You are very entertaining to them, like someone who sings love songs with a beautiful voice or plays well on an instrument. They hear what you say, but don't act on it! But when all these terrible things happen to them—as they will—then they will know a prophet has been among them".

How like our apostate so-called Christians, who having ignored the prophet's Message will "hide themselves in the dens, [the underground cities that have been built], and in the rocks of the mountains; saying to the mountains and rocks, fall on us, and hide us from the face of He who sits on the throne, and from the anger of the Lamb: for the great day of His anger is come; and who will be able to stand [under the Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial]"? And what of the Israelites and their impersonators who have rejected the warning of the Sixth Trumpet from World War II to the present and "repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: neither repented of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, or their thefts" (Revelation 9:20-21). Hence Jesus Messiah regards present day Jerusalem "spiritually as Sodom and Egypt . . . and the great city will be divided into three" (Revelation 9:20-21; 16:19; 11:8, 19; Zechariah 13:8-9; 14:4-5). Keep your eye on the types, remembering the dreadful judgments prophesied for the beast of Rome and the United States of America, her (once) Protestant image, and their followers (Revelation 19:20, 20:10).

The fact is now accomplished—Jerusalem is taken and Ezekiel's Divine mission vindicated, having announced the very day of the beginning of the investment of the city by Nebuchadnezzar "this same day" (Ezekiel 24:27), and confirmed by the arrival of the refugee and the opening of Ezekiel's mouth as prophesied when he was among the captives at the river Chebar three hundred miles away from Jerusalem. Despite the woeful news, the vindication of the prophet should engender faith and confidence among the Israelites. He cannot speak comfort after the example of Abraham (Genesis 12:7) and the comfort sought by the exiles in Canaan who regarded themselves as the continuation of Abraham's being to whom the inheritance was given, overlooked the fact that as Jesus said, "If you were Abraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham [who served not sin but the living God]" (verse 24; John 8:39); but he can reveal Israel's sin and hypocrisy, reprove the ministry, prophesy their Messianic expectations and exhort Israel regarding their future hope. Yet the former prophets such as Moses, David and Isaiah had declared Israel's impenitence would keep them from salvation, and that when Messiah came they would reject and murder Him. Jesus Himself said, "Had I not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty; but now they have no excuse for their sin" (John 15:22).

Our Christian duty is to speak the truth in love, spelling out the requirement of God's unchanging Word, "whoever looks into the perfect law of liberty, and continues therein, not being a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work will be blessed in his deed" (James 1:25; I Corinthians 9:16).

In chapter 33 Ezekiel laid down the necessity of repentance as preliminary to happier times for the people, in chapter 34 he reproves and promises the removal of the false shepherds or rulers as preparatory to the raising up of the Good Shepherd. This ministry of repentance was fulfilled by Jesus Messiah's forerunner John the Baptist. The prophecy of this chapter is very general, and not closely connected with specific occasions and circumstances of the past two thousand five hundred years, however believers in the Brother Branham's Message will appreciate its relevance to us today and to an election of Israelites soon to be restored to the land of their Covenant.

The "shepherds" were the entire body of officials responsible for the leadership of the people. Like the political, religious, business, banking, military and 'intellectual' leaders in this end-time they ought their own selfish ends and not the good of the people. The Shepherd King David, a type of Christ, was taken from the sheepcote to lead and guide and protect his people as Jesus called fishermen for apostles in token of their spiritual office of catching men. As today's leaders have no Absolute, because there was "no shepherd" in Judea worthy of the name Jesus said, "My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill [the scene of idolatries sanctioned by the rulers]: yes, My flock were scattered upon the face of all the earth, and none sought after them" so the flock became prey to the nations thereabout, Babylon, Egypt, Syria, Ammon, Moab, and Assyria.

Jeremiah 23:1-8 and a hundred years later Zechariah 11 prophesied the three offices of "shepherds" by which Israel was ruled—the civil authorities, the priests, and the prophets (or scribes who were teachers of the Law) who five hundred years thence would buy Messiah from Judas Iscariot for thirty pieces of silver, the price of a gored bond-servant, for His "visage was marred more than any man, and His form more than the sons of men" (Exodus 21:32; Matthew 26:15; Isaiah 52:14; 53:5). After the crucifixion and resurrection all were subsumed in Jesus Messiah as confirmed in Zechariah 13:7: "Awake, O sword, against My Shepherd, and against the Man that is My fellow, says the Lord of hosts: smite the Shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered." The destruction of the temple by Titus transformed this prophecy into historical fact.

In chapter 34:10-20 the Lord prophesies the abrogation of the relationship of the foolish shepherds to His flock by the all-expressive personal declaration, "I am against the shepherds . . . I will deliver My flock from the mouth of the shepherds, that they may be food for them no longer. I, even I, will manifest Myself." So in John 1 and Matthew 10:6 we read, "He was in the world . . . [and] He came to His own . . . to [seek an election among] the lost sheep of the house of Israel . . . and His own received Him not." And when the Shepherd was smitten the sheep were scattered.

Verse 12 speaks of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel after the close of the Gentile dispensation. "As a shepherd seeks out his flock in the day that He is in the midst of His sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out My sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day." That cloudy and dark day is the "Day of the Lord" (Ezekiel 30:3; Isaiah 60:1-2; Jeremiah 13:16; Joel 2:2; Zephaniah 1:15; Zechariah 14:6-7; Matthew 24:29; Revelation 6:12). "And I will bring them out from the people and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country".

The ministry of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to us Gentiles before the close of our dispensation was introduced by Brother Branham with the midnight cry, "Behold, the Bridegroom! Come out of Babylon to meet Him and be filled with the Spirit" (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 10:1-7; 18:4). He is in the midst of His sheep that are scattered among the denominations "gathering them together in one . . . in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation" (Ephesians 1:10; 4:13; Romans 8:19). The Reformation of the Judaeo-Roman system of false worship has passed, the apostolic faith has been restored and "the mystery of God is finished," there is no hope for the world (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7). There is no point praying for revival as the Lord is about to smite the earth with a curse: Christ has been crucified afresh by the rejection of His revelation in the Seven Seals. The only revival is in the heart of His Bride and the day of vengeance is imminent. Our "shepherds" are the warmongering politicians whose concern is for votes, money and prestige, apostate preachers careful for popularity with the world which is their meal ticket, and of offending Satan and their colleagues who rule this wicked and adulterous generation, the duplicitous diplomats, the corrupt captains of industry, and those effete pusillanimous prigs who pose as 'intellectual' opinion-makers.

Verse 13 confirms what we have been teaching all along, which is that although a counterfeit state of modern Israel has been established, "for fear of the Jews" it is not yet the homeland of the Covenant people descended from Abraham, Isaac and Israel who will NOT return until the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week when Christ is "in the midst of His sheep." God's prophets do not make mistakes (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:14; 27:13; 49:17; 65:9-10; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:3, 8; 31:8; Ezekiel 28:24-31; 36:24; 37:14, 21-22; 39:27-28; Micah 5:3; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31). Contrary to popular misconception, subterfuge and deception, the people of the Old Covenant have NOT returned to Palestine since 1948.

diagram of Daniel's Seventy Weeks

Speaking of His 'parousia' Coming to Israel, this will be signified by the mystic Cloud above the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:4-5) after the end of the Gentile dispensation when Christ will gather genuine Israelite tribesmen from the Muslim lands of the ancient Assyrian Empire, the Lord says: "I will feed them in a good pasture, and their fold shall be upon [Zion], the mountain height of Israel (Isaiah 46:13; Ezekiel 17:23; 20:40; Joel 2:32): there they shall lie down in a good fold, and feed in rich pasture upon the mountains of Israel. I Myself will feed My flock, and I will cause them to lie down, says the Lord God. I will seek the lost and bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the wounded, I will strengthen the sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong (Deuteronomy 32:15; Jeremiah 5:28), I will feed them with judgment. As for you, O My flock, THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD, I judge between sheep and sheep, between the rams and the he-goats".

The offending "shepherds" of verse 10 are gone; here the Lord is going to judge between one class of citizens of equal rank according to their individual character. The "the rams and great he-goats," answer to "the fat and strong," as opposed to the "sick." These are the rich and ungodly who imitate the bad shepherds in oppressing their poorer brethren, as if it enhanced their own joys to trample on others' rights (Ezekiel 34:18; Zechariah 10:3; Matthew 25:32-33).

"Not as though the Word of God has taken no effect. For not all of the descendants of Israel belong to Israel"  (Romans 9:6). After the removal of the offices of the Shepherds and the separation of the sheep from the goats chapter 34:23-24 brings Israel to the Millennium. "And I appoint or raise up One [incomparable] Shepherd over them (Song of Solomon 5:10-16; John 10:16). The allusion is to God's declaration to David, "I will raise up your seed after you" (II Samuel 7:12; Psalm 2:6; Acts 2:30; 13:23), "and He will feed them, even My servant [under My pre-eminence—not one following a course of his own choosing (Isaiah 49:3, 6; John 5:19; 8:26, 29)]; David will feed them, and will be their Shepherd. And I the Lord will be their God, and My servant David a prince among them; I the Lord have spoken it" (Ezekiel 37:22; Zechariah 14:9).

Millennial blessings follow Israel as God promised Moses on condition the nation walk in His statutes and obey His commandments "I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land" (Leviticus 26:3-6; Jeremiah 23:6; Hosea 6:3; Joel 2:23; Zechariah 8:13).

Verse 29-31, "And I will raise up for them a plant of renown [the righteous Branch], so that the people will never again hunger, or suffer the reproach of heathen conquest (Isaiah 11; Jeremiah 23:5-8; Hosea 2:18). Thus they will know that I the Lord their God am with them, and that they, the house of Israel, are My people, says the Lord God. As for you, My sheep, the sheep of My pasture, you are men, and I am your God, says the Lord God".

As God had promised many things which mere "men" could not expect to realize, He shows it is not from mans' might that their realization is to be looked for, but from GOD, who would perform them for His Covenant-people, "His flock." As He promised in Zechariah 4:7, "Not by man's might, nor by human power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of hosts." When we realize our weakness and God's power and faithfulness to His Covenant, we are in the fittest state for receiving His blessings.

Jesus told Paul, "My grace is sufficient for you: for My strength is made perfect in weakness. [To which Paul said within himself], Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. . . for when I am weak then am I strong" (II Corinthians 12:9-10). Thus, "The meek shall inherit the earth" (Matthew 5:5). nl733.htm

Cleansing the Sanctuary for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb

Bible Believers' Newsletter 732

"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."

ISSN 1442-8660

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. May He bless you with this offering:

Our main article focuses upon atonement—our oneness with Christ the Word in the unity of the faith which is the mind of God in you. It stresses the extreme lateness of the hour and brings to consciousness the fact Jesus' ministry "proclaimed the acceptable day of the Lord" which was the Pentecostal Jubilee Israel refused a second time following Mount Sinai, bringing that nation (and subsequently counterfeit Israel) under the dreadful curse of the Law of sin and death for three thousand five hundred years plus two thousand years of Trumpet Judgments. Brother Branham's ministry "proclaimed the Day of vengeance of our God" which will be our Pentecostal Jubilee and the end of grace, the first resurrection, the great tribulation, the redemption and martyrdom of 144,000 elect Israelites, and the consummation of life.

Many in the circle of this Message are casually "playing church," not taking God's Word seriously but conflating faith with reason for friendship with the world and the approval of family and friends. We must not avoid our responsibility as men by confusing phileo love with agape love which is corrective, always. When we neglect to expose sin and bring correction our carnal-minded phileo love brings death. The objective of this life is to put on the character of Christ by conforming our life to God's will expressed in His revealed Word. "To be spiritually minded is life and peace because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the Law of God, neither can it be. So those who are in the flesh cannot please God."

We must take the strait and narrow way of God's revealed Word and eternal Life not the easy way of flesh and transient pleasure, and hold the sword of God's Word to the throat of the enemy in the strong hand of faith. The mere association of kindhearted people with the true believer might well bring death in return for their kindness.

The legacy we leave our non-elect loved ones will not be material security or family photos of their happiness in sin, but the witness of character and a stand for God's Word when it brings them tears. Shortly they will all die a terrible death with the choice of martyrdom for refusing the trinitarian mark of the beast and declining to serve Rome's will; hereby they may preserve their name in the Book and be granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment. Those who choose the easy path will have their time in the lake of Fire. Your legacy will influence their destiny. Choose you this day the manner of love you wish to bequeath those dearest you.

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

Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott

NATO Warplanes traffic Drugs from Afghanistan

NATO plane loading Narcotics in Afghamistan

April 15, 2012 — Afghan Expert: "cultural" exchange for toilet paper . . . The new role of NATO—the transit of drugs from the Taliban—this, during the expert meeting on "Regional Security in the Afghan context of uncertainty," which is held in Alma-Ata, said the head of the public association "Center of the Afghan" Ariana "Ahmadulla Vastok. According to him," announced plans to strengthen the "non-military role" in Afghanistan, but in reality, NATO warplanes trafficked drugs from Afghanistan for distribution in Europe, including those of the provinces where poppy monopolized by the Taliban. "
Full story:

Comment: Under NATO, the drugs barons apparently have a free hand to engage in what they know best—how to produce as much heroin as possible to flood the streets of our cities, enriching the handful who control this evil trade. . . Total export earnings from opiates for Afghanistan are worth 2.4 billion USD, or 15% of GDP. Full story: US/NATO Troops Patrolling Opium Poppy Fields in Afghanistan. Jewish monopoly on opium still fuels Chinese resentment.

The United States' Barbarous Policy on Iran

April 15, 2012 — Given that bankers, corporate lawyers and top corporate executives hold key positions in the US state and given that they fund and contribute to elite policy formulation organizations, it can be concluded that the point of US primacy is to secure the financial and corporate class's profit-making interests. These include: creation of conditions for low-wage labor; the elimination of infant-industry protections; bans on subsidized pricing of necessities; upward redistribution of income; privatization of heath care and education; weakening environmental and health and safety regulations; and so on; in other words, all that is necessary to make profits fatter, and at the same time, all that makes the lives of ordinary people—in Iran and the West–meaner, poorer, shorter, and more uncertain. . .

The barbarism—concealed beneath lies about the need to protect Israel from an existential threat posed by an Iran that is "suspected" to be secretly building nuclear weapons –is revealed: Iran is being impoverished and threatened with physical destruction, not because it's an offensive threat to anyone's physical safety, but because its insistence on sovereignty is a threat to unrestricted Western corporate and financial domination of the Middle East.

Towards a Permanent US Military Presence in Southeast Europe

April 12, 2012 — US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has announced that Washington will "help" Kosovo to join NATO as well as the European Union. . . Membership into the EU for Kosovo would be welcoming another failed state, something which may not bother US Secretary Clinton, but which the EU at this juncture definitely can do without. Best estimates place unemployment in the country at as much as 60%. . . Kosovo is a tiny parcel of land in one of the most strategic locations in all Europe from a geopolitical standpoint of the US military objective of controlling oil flows and political developments from the oil-rich Middle East to Russia and Western Europe. . . It also protects the multi-billion dollar heroin trade, which, significantly, has grown to record dimensions in Afghanistan according to UN narcotics officials, since the US occupation. . .

The question then becomes, why are Washington, NATO, the EU and inclusive and importantly, the German Government, so eager to legitimize the breakaway Kosovo? A Kosovo run internally by organized criminal networks is easy for NATO to control. It insures a weak state which is far easier to bring under NATO domination. Combined with NATO control over Afghanistan where the Kosovo heroin controlled by Prime Minister Thaci originates, the Pentagon is building a web of encirclement around Russia that is anything but peaceful. . .

Barack Obama's Attorney admits the Birth Certificate is Fake

anti Obama posterApril 16, 2012 — It's official. The man sitting in the highest public office in America is an outlaw and has no legitimate claim to the White House. Any member of the House of Representatives or the United States Senate who says that Barack Obama is a legitimate office-holder should be held to account for being part of the greatest criminal conspiracy in our history . . . Barack Obama's own attorney says his birth certificate is a forgery. If Mr. Obama is not a natural-born citizen as the overwhelming majority of Americans believe, then he cannot legitimately appear on the numerous states' ballots in the presidential race. On April 12, 2012, Alexandra Hill – the attorney for Mr. Obama in New Jersey—told the presiding judge in open court that Barack Obama's birth certificate is a forgery. . .

In spite of the bombshell admission, no mainstream news outlet has covered what happened at the trial yet. Judge Jeff Masin blocked the case and basically told the plaintiffs that it's now up to the New Jersey Secretary of State to decide the issue of Mr. Obama's eligibility. Talk about judicial courage.

Mario Apuzzo, the attorney for the plaintiffs, had this to say about the incident: "Upon my request that she so stipulate, Obama's lawyer agreed during the trial that there was absolutely no evidence before the court as to who Obama is or where he was born, including excluding from evidence the internet image of Obama's alleged Certificate of Live Birth he released on April 27, 2011. The ALJ confirmed that to be the case . . ." Full story:

Col. Douglas Macgregor: Two Failed Wars and why I support Ron Paul

April 15, 2012 — What appeals to me about Ron Paul can be summed up by one of his performances during the debates. . . When they got to Ron Paul they asked him about lobbyists and he said, "You know, I don't know any lobbyists. I won't meet with them."

The fact that Ron Paul knew no lobbyists and wouldn't meet with them is a measure of the man's integrity. And frankly, a demonstration to the extent that he is not corrupt. He is there not only to represent his district but as Edmund Burke suggested, to also think clearly about what is in the interest of the American people and try and act in accordance with that larger national interest as well as the interest of his constituents. . .

Globalization and the so-called new world order . . . are really Trojan Horses for the socialist elite that dominates both western Europe and North America, to essentially re-engineer society to suit themselves. And as you can imagine, like all ruling elite they are corrupt. This also goes to the issue of the central bank and the origins of not only the Federal Reserve System but the central banking system in Europe. These things have turned out to be destructive because not only do they seek to socialize losses by shifting the burden by compensating the losses to the taxpayers in both Europe and North America, but it also allows them to manipulate countries and states into conflicts with each other that otherwise would probably not occur. That, again, is another reason I have been very supportive of Ron Paul because I think central banking has turned out to be a disaster. . . Full story:

A Year after the Invasion of Libya: Poverty, Division and Death

April 4, 2012 — France was the country responsible for launching the first bomb on Libya and paving the way for a military invasion led by the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) which had the precise goal of overthrowing the government of Muammar Gaddafi. . . the United States would lead the NATO intervention, calling for the "collaboration" of its allies France, Britain and Italy, among others, the difference from the previous invasions they led in Afghanistan and Iraq, where they sent in their military strength unilaterally. . .

According to the Venezuelan ambassador in Libya, Afif Tajeldine, the death toll could exceed 70,000, given that NATO has made more than 20,000 air raids and surpassed 8,000 armed attacks. . . The diplomat recalled the high level of human development that the country of Libya had, the second in quality of life in Africa and among the top ten worldwide. . . Full story:

Let us see what is behind the Syrian Terrorists

April 4, 2012 — The Syrian Opposition is not the people of Syria. Despite what the Opposition is saying, the Syrian Government is largely popular and despite what the Opposition is saying, this so-called Syrian National Council is a mirror of the Transitional National Council in Libya – rapists, racists, torturers, arsonists, thieves and murderers.

And what is the Syrian National Council? A large part of it is a Turkish-based group called Suriye Ulusal Geçis Konseyi. . .

Does an "unarmed civilian" destroy a military jet in full view of SKY News, which claimed it was a "victory"? Do unarmed civilians use RPGs, do unarmed civilians use machine guns, do unarmed civilians attack and murder 3,000 Government Security Personnel? No, these are not unarmed civilians – they are terrorists and they have been armed and financed by the west, yet again. One faction is the al-Nusra Front to Protect the Levant, a group which has links to Al-Qaeda (***AL QAEDA IS THE BABY OF CIA/MI6 AND MOSSAD COMPANY) and this is the group which claimed responsibility, gloating in a 45-minute video, for the terrorist attacks in Aleppo and Damascus, using car bombs. The terrorists gloated about raping a woman and murdering her son. It also claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack in Damascus in January. The General Secretary of this terrorist group is called Al-Faith Abu Mohammed al-Golani. Al-Qaeda flags were visible in the background during this sickening act. . .

Two Years after the BP Oil Spill: Is the Gulf Ecosystem Collapsing?

April 18, 2012 — And all of that lovely Corexit dispersant sprayed on water, land and air? It inhibits the ability of microbes to break down oil, and allows oil and other chemicals to speed past the normal barriers of human skin. Background here. NYT — Impact of Gulf Spill's Underwater Dispersants Is Examined: Speaking on the chemical ingredients of the dispersants used, "The report finds that "Of the 57 ingredients: 5 chemicals are associated with cancer; 33 are associated with skin irritation from rashes to burns; 33 are linked to eye irritation; 11 are or are suspected of being potential respiratory toxins or irritants; 10 are suspected kidney toxins; 8 are suspected or known to be toxic to aquatic organisms; and 5 are suspected to have a moderate acute toxicity to fish."

Cleansing the Sanctuary for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb

Genesis 3:22-24, "The Lord God said: Obviously in knowing good and evil the man [not the woman, who was deceived (I Timothy 2:14)] has become like one of us; and now he might put forth his hand and also take of the Tree of Life and live forever. So the Lord God expelled him from the garden of Eden, to till the ground whence he was taken. He drove out the man and placed cherubim east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword [or Shekinah] turning in every direction [as a revolving flame] to guard the way to the Tree of Life".

O how every heart yearns to be restored to the Paradise of God, but the only way back to Eden is through the cherubim and the Pillar of Fire at the Altar, the Shekinah, which is the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord, the Logos and Presence of God who is the Tree of Life, Jesus Messiah. But the eternal Life of the Tree had to become flesh first. "Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and eternal Life: no man comes to the Father but by the Sacrifice on the Altar. If you had known Me, you should have known My Father also: henceforth you know Him, and have seen Him" (John 14:6-7). So God moved the place of worship from this earthly paradise to the outside world, yet so long as there was no blood on that altar evincing an innocent and acceptable life sacrificed to atone for the original sin contracted in our first birth through the woman plus our personal sins after the age of accountability, it was a judgment seat.

God placed Adam and Eve under the blood of two lambs, the evidence of innocent life surrendered in substitution for the lives of the guilty (Genesis 3:21; Leviticus 17:11; Deuteronomy 12:23). This provided a temporary covering though not an atonement for sin which demands an identical substitute for the original sinless innocence of Adam's life. Man's Redeemer must be a sinless near KINSMAN. Animals are not kin to man and have no soul that can come back upon the repentant sinner in a second, Spiritual birth, imparting the Redeemer's eternal Life to His soul through faith in the "present Truth—what Jesus is doing now" (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:1-7). Our second birth is through the Man Christ Jesus, the Creator God who manifest in virgin-born flesh to fulfill the part of KINSMAN Redeemer for the first Adam and his fallen race. His soul is the Spirit of God that quickens us to eternal Life through faith.

John 6:54-56, "[Jesus said] He who eats My flesh [Word] and drinks My blood [Spirit] has eternal Life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him." Jesus is God's Word, the Tree of Life made flesh. He was not commending cannibalism and the consumption of blood which is forbidden, but admonishing believers to "atone" and become at-one with Him in Word and Spirit which nourish and refresh our born-again soul with eternal Life as He commanded Ezekiel: "Eat this scroll, [become one with the Word], and go speak to the House of Israel" (Ezekiel 3:1-3). Likewise He told us: "eat the open Book" to become one with the revelation of the Seven Seals and "prophesy again to many peoples . . ." (Revelation 10:8-11). This is the basis of the Seven Vials of Revelation 15 and 16 typed by the ordeal of jealousy imposed upon a wife suspected of infidelity (Numbers 5:11-31).

The Old Testament saints were imprisoned in death and the grave until the KINSMAN Redeemer met sin's price for Adam and his fallen race. Following Jesus' death, resurrection and cleansing the heavenly tabernacle of their sins accumulated over four thousand years, the Judgment Seat became a Mercy Seat, "and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who slept arose, and came out of the graves after His resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared to many" (Matthew 27:52-53).

Now, since the last saint predestinated to the PART-Word Body was redeemed in 1963, Christ's Mediation is completed. Revelation 4, 5 and 10:1-7 have been fulfilled and as Scripture clearly portrays, the Mercy Seat is now a Judgment Seat. Christ is no longer a Mediator as Son of God; since He has claimed the Book of Life, the Title Deed to creation and those of Adam's race whose names remain within, and resuming the prophetic office of Son of man He is now King of Kings and Judge (Revelation 5:8-10; John 5:27; 17:14).

"But if Christ is no longer a Mediator, grace has ended and no one can be saved"!

Whilst it is true that redemption is over, since the revelation of the Seven Seals we do have today by God's help, the perfect interpretation of the Word with Divine vindication (Revelation 10:7) thus potentially more grace through faith than at any time. And because "the mystery of God is finished" God's elect have no need of a go-between to mediate for the ignorance of what was formerly sealed from the foundation of the world. Matthew 7:7-8: "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for everyone who asks [in faith] receives; and he who seeks [in God's unchanging Word] finds; and to he who knocks the Door shall be opened [and that Door is Christ]".

Everyone in Adam's race is born "saved" from his mother's womb as his name was written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world when in God's foreknowledge Christ was crucified to redeem Adam and his kin. So long as their name remains in the Book they are "saved" and following the general resurrection they will be granted into eternal Life by the saints at the White Throne Judgment (Revelation 13:8; 17:8; John 1:29; I John 2:2). Jesus could not fully redeem the Church Age saints on Calvary because the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals and with only PART-Word they could not come into the unity of the faith without mediation. However Christ's end-time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary because we are predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word by the revelation of the Seven Seals and the Seven Trumpets through the ministries of Brother Branham and the two prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 respectively.

"But if there is no blood on the Mercy Seat we are all doomed"!

Not at all! While there is now no Blood on the Mercy Seat in the heavenly Sanctuary and that Mercy Seat has become a Judgment seat as portrayed in Revelation 4, the elect Church is the Blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Ghost, for the Life is in the Blood (Galatians 3:26-29). And so long as His Blood is on earth—God's footstool or Judgment Seat—this earth is a Mercy Seat. But grace will end when the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial manifest and the resurrection commences, and once we change in the atoms to meet the Lord in the Air the Blood will leave; earth will become God's Judgment Seat with Satan incarnate in the pope of the Judaeo-Roman church (II Thessalonians 2:6-8).

The cherubim guard God's throne so one must pass them in order to enter the place of His Presence. They were four, the number of "deliverance" and "terrestrial creation." The animal features of the cherubic life forms represent the nature of the lion, the ox, the man and the eagle, but man whose soul is made in the image of God is the center of life and the highest form of animal life. As regards his destiny man is complete in Christ the glorified God-man and as he expands his fullness in the world so does the God-man in the Gospels. As the tribes of Israel in groups of three guarded the Ark of the Old Covenant, the cherubim represent the four Gospels through which we approach the Holy Spirit of the New Covenant under the first four Seals of redemption, and becoming at-one with their Message they thus represent the Church.

The Light rose in Jerusalem in the east, introduced by the living creature with the face of a Lion through Matthew's Gospel which was addressed primarily to the Israelite majority in Pentecost and the first three Church Ages under the First Seal of redemption from AD33 to 606 expressing the nature of the apostle: the royal freedom of the fighting, conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah that contends and overcomes all.

The Light was introduced to the west by the living creature with the face of a bullock through Mark's Gospel which was addressed to Roman or Gentile believers in the Thyatira Church Age. It contained few references to Old Testament prophecy and numerous explanations of Hebrew words and customs (Mark 3:17; 5:41; 7:1-4, 11, 34). Under the Second Seal of redemption from 606 to 1520 many Gentiles were entering the faith. The bullock expresses the nature of a pastor, a labouring, suffering and bleeding animal of burden and sacrifice.

The Light was introduced to the south by the living creature with the face of a man through Luke's Gospel which was written especially for the Gentiles who represented the majority of the saints in the Sardis and Philadelphia Church Ages. Brother Luke is at pains to explain Israelite customs and sometimes substitutes Greek names for Hebrew. Under the Third Seal of Redemption from 1520 to 1906 man represents the office of teacher in his intellect, wisdom, ideality and precision.

The Light was introduced to the north by the living creature with the face of an eagle through John's Gospel which was written to inspire faith in Jesus Messiah as the Son of God. Under the Fourth Seal of Redemption from 1906 to the end of the Gentile dispensation the eagle represents the evangelist in Laodicea; but in this holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel's Pentecostal Feast, God's prophet and Christ's end-time Bride soaring above the earth in the S_O_N-Light of the Spirit free from toil and engaged in vision.

The four Gospels guard the Holy Spirit against what is profane, and saints born a second time under the first four Seals of redemption receive the nature of the living creature that introduces the Seal for their Age. The Church responded to the anointing of the Spirit working among them as Brother Branham explains under the revelation of the Fifth Seal.

When Ezekiel saw the appearance of the likeness of the glory of God and the cherubim he saw what Moses, Isaiah, Daniel and John saw in their visions. In Revelation 21:10-11 John saw Him sitting in His Glory, which is "New Jerusalem coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a Bride adorned for her husband." The glory of God is Jesus Christ and the glory of Jesus Christ is His Wife: through the invisible marriage union or new birth the two are one. Five hundred and ninety-five years before the birth of Jesus, Ezekiel 1:1-5 and 26-28 depicts the Son of man in the midst of the four living creatures seemingly enthroned atop the fifteen hundred mile high Mount Zion overshadowed with the Shekinah. The living creatures represent the glorified Church and the seven rainbow colours of the sevenfold Spirit of God that divided itself throughout the seven Church Ages gathered back into the unity of their original amber or emerald green, signifying Life. Red represented perfect love in redemption through the Blood, and each of those seven colours represented the purity of God's motive and objective in the ministry of His sevenfold Spirit through the angels to each of the seven Church Ages, each colour and Spirit and Gospel Light blending in with its neighbour.

Body of Christ before the sealsGod is Light, and the rainbow colours of Spiritual Light reflect the attribute of His Life imbued as the Token or evidence of the Life of Christ in the saints to counter the insidiously satanic strategy of the children of Darkness against their dispensation, as for instance, the green of Life in Thyatira's Dark Age. Red (Ephesus), orange (Smyrna), yellow (Pergamos), green (Thyatira), blue (Sardis), indigo (Philadelphia), and violet (Laodicea). The rainbow we see above is only half of the Covenant whereas the horizontal rainbow overshadowing New Jerusalem, the Church, will be the full circle. Half is the Old Covenant, the other half is the New. We require the Old Testament to explain the New and the New Testament to understand the Old. And as the seven colours of Noah's rainbow, which was the sign of God's Covenant with the earth and every living creature after the Flood, blend seamlessly together, so do the Old and New Covenants. The visible arc of seven coloured rainbow testified that through the seven colours of seven Church Ages, God will save and restore earth and the whole creation to pristine perfection in the renewed heavens and earth.

Ezekiel 1:28, "Like the rainbow in the clouds after a shower, such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and heard the voice of One speaking." The glory of the Lord is covering the Church because He is in the Church (John 14:7)!

In Revelation 4:1-7 John, representing YOU as Christ's end-time Bride caught up in the Spirit into heaven after the close of the Laodicean Church Age, describes the same vision: "Immediately I was in the Spirit and saw a throne in heaven, and One seated on the throne. And He was to look upon like a jasper stone and a sardius: and a rainbow that looked like an emerald surrounded the throne. And round the throne were twenty-four thrones seating twenty-four elders clothed in white and with golden crowns on their heads. And from the throne issued flashes of lightning, and voices and peals of thunder: and before the throne burnt seven lamps of fire, which are the seven Spirits of God. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like crystal. Around the throne on each side were four living creatures full of eyes in front and behind [indicating the saints' intelligence of Jesus Messiah, "the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come"  (Revelation 4:8; John 14:26; 16:13)]. And the first living creature was like a lion, and the second like a calf, and the third had a face as a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle".

Joseph in his coatBrother Branham said, "Watch! Isaiah saw the same thing just exactly" (Revelation Chapter Four, Part III, p. 694:281). Isaiah 6:1-4, "In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple." Brother Branham frequently referred to this Scripture as the vision as of the glory of the Lord, which is Jesus Christ and His Bride of all Ages. As Joseph His type was adorned with a coat of many colours, Christ is adorned by His rainbow Bride.

"Above the seraphims were in attendance on Him: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried to another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the fullness of the whole earth is His glory (Psalms 24:1 72:19). And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of Him who called, and the Sanctuary was filled with smoke".

Those visions match that of our opening text, Genesis 3:24. Newsletter 549 explained how in Isaiah 6 Israel's apostasy foreshadows the glory of Christ and His Bride drawn out from the apostate church. John 12:37-41 quotes Isaiah 53:1 and 6:9-10 as a summary account of the obdurate unbelief of the mass of Judeans and their rulers in contrast with the account of Jesus' testimony to Himself in the same chapter:

"Though He had done so many signs before them, yet they did not believe on Him: that the saying of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled: Lord, who has believed our report? and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?" They were without faith, and the Kingdom of God is built upon the rock of revelation from Above (Matthew 16:13-16).

"Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah again said: He has blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, and perceive with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. Isaiah said this because he saw His glory and spoke of Him".

In Acts 28:24-28 after expounding and testifying the Kingdom of God to the Israelites from morning till evening at his lodgings in Appii Forum, Paul quoted Isaiah 6:9-10 as they departed in unbelief: "Well spoke the Holy Ghost to your fathers through Isaiah the prophet: Go to this people and say, Hearing you shall indeed hear, and will not understand; and seeing with the eyes you will see, and not perceive: for the heart of this people has become fat, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; so that they should not see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should not be converted, and I should not heal them. Therefore let it be clearly understood, that this salvation of God is sent to the Gentiles, and they will listen".

horsemen of RevelationIsaiah's vision of the glorified Messiah enthroned as Son of David, his rejection, the earthquake "in the year that king Uzziah died," Israel's profanity centuries before the lewd Talmud was even conceived—eight centuries before its satanic hatred would cause Messiah's denunciation and murder, and two millennia before Israel's soon-coming revival by the prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 whom they will murder along with the remnant of 144,000 elect Israelites, embrace Judaeo-Communism and exercise the "Samson Option" from Judaeo-Communist Russia; foreshadows Gentile apostasy in a world Judaized by Talmudic lewdness, usury, economic and financial insanity, Judaeo-Romanism and such all-pervading Judaeo-Communism, Jesus Messiah named the final Church Age Laodicea, which means Communism or "People's rights." The Jewish-controlled media boast we live in the "Jewish Age" as Professor Kevin MacDonald observes in reviewing The Jewish Century by Yuri Slezkine:

"A persistent theme among critics of Jews—particularly those on the pre-World War II right—has been that the Bolshevik revolution was a Jewish revolution and that the Soviet Union was dominated by Jews. This theme appears in a wide range of writings, from Henry Ford's International Jew, to published statements by a long list of British, French, and American political figures in the 1920s (Winston Churchill, Woodrow Wilson, and David Lloyd George), and, in its most extreme form, by Adolf Hitler, who [presciently] wrote:

    Now begins the last great revolution. By wresting political power for himself, the Jew casts off the few remaining shreds of disguise he still wears. The democratic plebeian Jew turns into the blood Jew and the tyrant of peoples. In a few years he will try to exterminate the national pillars of intelligence and, by robbing the peoples of their natural spiritual leadership, will make them ripe for the slavish lot of a permanent subjugation. The most terrible example of this is Russia." (In Nolte 1965, 406. See Kellogg (2005) for an account of the interactions and influence of White Russian émigrés on the National Socialist Movement in Germany).

This long tradition stands in sharp contradiction to the official view, promulgated by Jewish organizations and almost all contemporary historians, that Jews played no special role in Bolshevism and indeed were specifically victimized by it. Yuri Slezkine's book provides a much needed resolution to these opposing perspectives. It is an intellectual tour de force, alternately muddled and brilliant, courageous and apologetic (Kevin Macdonald, Stalin's Willing Executioners: Jews as a Hostile Elite in the USSR").

Isaiah 6 foreshadows and brings to mind the close of the Gentile dispensation in apostasy with the second crucifixion of the Son of God (Luke 18:8; II Thessalonians 2:1-3; II Timothy 3 – 4; Hebrews 6:4-6; Revelation 3:14-20). Zechariah 14:3-9: "Then shall the Lord go forth and fight against those nations as when He fights in a day of battle. In that day His feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives which lies before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives will be split apart from east to west by a very wide valley; half of the Mount will move northward, and half southward. And you will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of My mountains will reach to Azal [apparently a hamlet by the city gate]; you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord My God will come, and all the saints with Him" (Isaiah 29:6; I Thessalonians 4:14; Revelation 12:16; 16:19).

"On that day, the light will not be clear, nor dark, yet there will be continuous day which shall be known to the Lord [and His end-time Bride], not day, nor night: but at evening time it shall be Light [by the Message of Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; 24:27; Revelation 10:7]. In that day living waters will flow out from Jerusalem; half of them to the former [Dead] sea [signifying the "former rain" of the Spirit upon the Israelites], and half of them to the hinder [or Mediterranean] sea [signifying the "latter rain" of the Spirit upon the Gentiles]: in summer and in winter shall it be. [Unlike the natural waters of the Jordan the Holy Spirit will flow continually upon the just and the unjust during the great tribulation of Daniel's Seventieth Week, so that "Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand"]. And the Lord will be King over all the earth: in that day shall there be One Lord, and His Name alone will be worshipped" as foreseen in the visions of Genesis 3:24, Isaiah 6:1-4, Ezekiel 1:1:1-5, 26-28, Revelation 4:1-8 and 21:10-11.

Do you recognize the Scriptures that are coming to pass in your day?

In Isaiah's vision "the Sanctuary was filled with smoke," which signifies God's anger as evidenced by Isaiah's confession and mortal fear and the Lord's condemnation of the Israelites from the time of Isaiah and the dispersion of the Northern Kingdom to the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week under the purging of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet in the "time of Jacob's trouble" as prophesied by Zechariah 12 – 14 and Malachi 3 – 4.

Revelation 15:1, "And I saw another sign in the heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having seven plagues, the last, for in them is finished the anger of God."

Revelation 15:2-4 is a parenthesis revealing the 144,000 elect Israelites who overcome under the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet (Revelation 6:12 – 7:8; 11:1 – 14:20). Turning back to Revelation 4:5-6: "Out of the throne issued flashes of lightning, and voices and peals of thunder: and before the throne burnt seven lamps of fire which are the seven Spirits of God. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like crystal: and next to and round about the throne, four living creatures full of eyes before and behind." Here we find that all seven Church Ages are over, the seven portions of the Spirit that quickened the Word of the hour to the angels and saints have left earth and returned to the Throne of God. Christ's mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Word is fulfilled and in the absence of Blood the Mercy Seat it is now the Judgment Seat. The laver in the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness was made from the copper looking glasses of the Israelite women; hence it was called "the sea of glass." The water in the laver is crystal clear as the full number of the Church Age saints has been washed in the Blood of the Lamb and is complete (Romans 11:25).

As we have seen in the visions of Genesis 3:24, Isaiah 6:1-4, Ezekiel 1:1-5, 26-28, and Revelation 21:10-11, in Revelation 15 the first resurrection and translation are past: Christ and His Bride of all Ages are at the Wedding Supper in God's throne, which is heaven. On earth "I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and 144,000 elect Israelites who had gotten the victory over the beast [of Papal Rome], and over his [once Protestant] image [the confederation of churches], and over the number of his name [VICARIVS + FILII + DEI = 666], standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are your works, O Lord, God Almighty; [unlike Baptists today, these have been cleansed with the washing of water by revelation of the Word through the ministry of their Moses and Elijah, and recognize the true Oneness of the godhead]: just and true are your ways, You King of the nations. Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your Name? for You only are holy: for all nations shall come and worship before You; for [the righteousness of] Your [Trumpet] judgments is made manifest".

This is not that bunch of winging, whining, eternally persecuted non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews who boast "We are the destroyers," and declare that no matter how much wealth and privilege they are able to extort from the Gentiles they will never be satisfied. These are not hypocritical imposters "living on leeks, and onions, and garlic" in the West where the Covenant is of no effect, but Israelites descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob living the name "Israel," which means overcomer—one who prevails with God—One God, not one of three, or six of one and half a dozen of the other.

"After [the parenthesis of Revelation 2-4] . . . (insert your name here) . . . saw the open Sanctuary of the tabernacle of witness in heaven: [this connects us to the vision of Revelation 11:19 under the Seventh Trumpet, where the Sanctuary of heaven is open, there being no veil before the Holy of Holies (Matthew 27:51) and the Ark of God's Testament is seen, the symbol of God's favour towards Israel]. And the seven angels came out from the temple, that had the seven plagues, clothed in linen pure and glistening, and girt around the breasts with golden girdles [as judges (1:13; Isaiah 11:3-5)]. And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden vials full of the anger of God, who lives eternally. [The domination of God's anger in inflictions of death is conditioned by the free decisions of men. The manifestation of Absolute Life is a decree of death or cherem to obstinate sinners]. And the Sanctuary was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His power; and no one was able to enter into the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels in the ordeal of jealousy should be finished".

Body of Christ before the sealsAs Isaiah 6:4, Joel 2:28 and Acts 2:19 foretold for this our day immediately preceding "the great and dreadful day of the Lord" the heavenly Sanctuary is smoking with God's anger. There has been no Blood on the Mercy Seat since mediation was fulfilled, and Christ took the Title Deed of Redemption to resume His prophetic office of Son of man as Judge and King of Kings. This transpired in Revelation 4 and 5 which was the breach of relationship between the Church Ages and the Seals indicated on the diagram by the Holy Spirit between the Church Age saints and the Capstone made up of Christ's end-time Bride. Brother Branham said, "the Lamb advancing from glory for intercessions (All right.) to make claims now for His redemption. . . He'd been on His mediatorial work back here. But remember, these Seals are ready to be opened, and the Lamb come from the Sanctuary of God, advanced forward. . . Wait till we . . . take that one-half hour that is silent; the sanctuary's smoking; [it has been smoking for forty-nine years]; there's no more intercession; the Sacrifice has left; it's a judgment seat. There's no Blood on it no more, for the Blood covered Lamb has walked away. Don't you wait till that time . . . And the Lamb comes forth now from being a Mediator between God and man; He becomes a Lion. And when He becomes a Lion, He takes the Book; that's His rights. . . (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 97:4-5, 99:5).

There's no more Blood on the seat in the sanctuary at all. There's no more Blood on the altar. The sacrifice has been removed; and there's nothing but smoke and lightning and judgment in there. . ." (ibid 408:2).

Brother Branham said: "This was a very hard thing to speak to you people . . . the world will carry right on. People will still come to the altar; they'll still cry out, but it won't do no good. See? It'll be gone. See? It'll be over. There won't be no mercy. Remember that. "And the sanctuary becomes smoky." "He that's filthy is filthy still, he that's righteous is righteous still, and he that's holy is holy still." There's no more mercy; when the Lamb takes the Book, that's it; that's all of it; and it looks a whole lot like it could be now" (Souls that are in Prison Now, p. 53:390-391).

"Just exactly like it was in the days of Noah: one day the door of mercy will be closed. Then the Scripture says, the Sanctuary becomes smoky. That means that the Intercessor has gone from it. And as long as the Lamb is still back there as I've said this morning, or somewhere I was preaching, there's still mercy" (The Flashing Red Light of His Coming, p. 32:160).

Redemption is over. Redemption ended in March 1963 when the Lamb became the Lion and claimed the Book in Revelation 5:7. As explained above, we who are His end-time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary and are only now recognizing our position.

Revelation 15:8, "And the Sanctuary was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His power; and no one was able to enter into the temple, until all seven plagues of the seven angels should be finished".

The Seven Vials or antitype of the ordeal of jealousy in Numbers 5:11-31 tried non-elect professing Christians after each Church Age to separate the foolish virgin who are justified and sanctified but not born-again, from the unbelievers and make-believers. These mysteries will be revealed to the 144,000 elect Israelites by God's two witnesses during the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. This will reveal how Esau/Edom and their false churches in league with the Roman State persecuted the Israelite majority but also Gentiles in the first fifteen hundred years of the Church as they persecuted Jacob/Israel from the womb, and do so to this day through their global domination of banking, communications, education, entertainment, finance and politics (Genesis 3:15; 25:6; 27:39-41; Numbers 20:14-21; Isaiah 34; 63; Ezekiel 25:12-14; Malachi 1:1-4). This revelation will distinguish Satan's mighty false church and its teachings from Christ's "little flock," her Bible faith and doctrine. It will expose the falsehood of Church and secular histories as the revelation of Israel's Trumpet Judgments will distinguish God's Word and promises revealed through Moses and the Prophets from the satanic antitheses of "Jewish fables," and show the Lord's grace in honouring the Patriarchs and sifting an election from the reprobate mass.

In Revelation 5:8 "When Christ took the Book, the four living creatures and twenty-four elders fell down before Him, each having harps, and golden vials containing the revelation of the saints [for their day]." In Revelation 8:3, "Another angel stood at the altar, and he was given much incense [revelation of the Seven Seals (Revelation 1:1), to offer with [and perfect] the revelation of all [New Testament] saints upon the golden altar before the throne." At the end of the Gentile dispensation he will cast the coals into the earth in judgment (Revelation 8:5; 6:12; 11:19; 12:7-12; 16:18-19, etc). In Revelation 15:7-8 seven golden Vials full of God's righteous anger are poured out in succession upon non-elect professing Christians after each Church Age. The climax of God's anger was restrained by the Blood on the Mercy Seat, now it is held back by the presence of Christ's end-time Bride; when our number is complete and we are mature in the unity of the faith to manifest that they are His Sons, the Seventh Vial of Revelation 16:17 be will poured out completing the anger of God, and the first resurrection will commence.

As the Old Testament saints had to rest until the God-man Jesus Messiah fulfilled the part of their KINSMAN Redeemer and became "the Pentecostal firstfruits of them that slept," the Church Age saints—all having obtained a good report through faith—have not received the promise of resurrection and glorification, God having provided some better thing for us who are the Christ's at His second or 'parousia' Coming—the manifestation of the Sons of God and translation without death—that they should not be glorified without us, for we are all one Body. Thus "no one was able to enter into the Sanctuary until all seven plagues of the seven angels should be finished".

As Jesus ascended and cleansed the heavenly temple with His Own Blood before He led the Old Testament saints captive of Life, the temples of our bodies must be cleansed by glorification because "flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God; neither does corruption inherit incorruption" (I Corinthians 15:46-58). As Satan and his host is cast down to earth (Revelation 12:7-12) "The seventh angel [will] pour his vial into the air to cleanse the Fourth Dimension where we gain faith for translation grace to manifest that we are the Sons of God and change in the atoms to meet the Lord and our Brethren in the Sixth Dimension]. Then a great voice from the throne in the heavenly Sanctuary will say, It is done. And there will be voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great." This will mark the end of the Gentile dispensation at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial when Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth sinks beneath the Pacific (Revelation 18:21-24; Luke 21:25), and after two days the first resurrection and the manifestation of the Sons of God will commence.

"And the great city [Jerusalem] will be divided into three parts (Zechariah 13:8-9; 14:4-5; Revelation 11:19), and the cities of the nations will fall: and great Babylon [Rome] will come in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His anger (Revelation 18:6-20). And every island will flee, and the mountains will not be found. And [in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week] a great hail out of heaven will fall upon men, every stone about a hundred pounds weight: and men will blaspheme God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague will be exceedingly great."

The Judaeo-Roman harlot will be stoned according to the Law (Leviticus 20:10; Deuteronomy 22:22):

Adultery is a terrible sin. The Judaeo-Roman church who claims she is the wife of Christ the Word committed adultery at the First Nicaea Council, and to this day conceives spiritual bastard children. A woman who marries while she has a living husband is an adulteress (Romans 7:3; I Corinthians 7:10-11, 39). Children born of natural or spiritual adultery or incest are non-elect bastards who cannot be born-again (Deuteronomy 23:2). God's unchanging Word is settled in heaven. Eve should have been burned along with the Serpent for their awful deed (Leviticus 21:9). And when Rome's satanic religion has gone the full course of the Ages she will be burned with her seducer, for the whore and her (once) Protestant children and the antichrist and Satan will all find their places in the lake of fire (Revelation 2:20-23; 19:20; 20:10).

God's Word is precise and strict. Moses said, "You shall not commit adultery."

Jesus said, "Whoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart" (Matthew 5:27-28).

Speaking about women who wear shorts, slacks and immodest dress, Brother Branham said, "You know, if you dress like that and some sinner on the street looks at you in the wrong way, you're going to answer at the Day of judgment for committing adultery with that sinner. You might be as virtuous to your husband as you can be; you might be as virtuous to your boyfriend, as loyal as you know how to be; but in the sight of God you're a street harlot (The World is Falling Apart, #18:10, p. 19:133)! nl732.htm
