Russian Analyst urges Nuclear Attack on Yellowstone & San Andreas Fault
March 31, 2015 A Russian geopolitical analyst says the best way to attack the United States is to detonate nuclear weapons to trigger a supervolcano at Yellowstone National Park or along the San Andreas Fault line on California's coast. The president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems based in Moscow, Konstantin Sivkov said in an article for a Russian trade newspaper on Wednesday, VPK News, that Russia needed to increase its military weapons and strategies against the "West" which was "moving to the borders of Russia" . . .
NATO, a political and military alliance which counts the US, UK, Canada and many countries in western Europe as memberswas amassing strength against Russia and the only way to combat that problem was to attack America's vulnerabilities to ensure a "complete destruction of the enemy".
"Geologists believe that the Yellowstone super volcano could explode at any moment. There are signs of growing activity there . . . the munition megaton class to initiate an eruption . . . a country just disappears."
He said, "Another vulnerable area of the United States from the geophysical point of view, is the San Andreas fault1300 kilometers between the Pacific and North American plates . . . a detonation of a nuclear weapon there can trigger catastrophic events like a coast-scale tsunami which can completely destroy the infrastructure of the United States" . . . Mr. Sivkov [said] the only way for the "American elite" to be held accountable was for its military forces to be destroyed. "American politicians have committed a variety of crimes. Will anyone be held accountable for those crimes? What about the international law, the UN and other organisations? Are they doing anything?" he asked . . . Full story: smh.com.au
Comment: Concerning the annihilation of the United States of America, which without metaphor is the outlaw nation of Revelation 13:11-18 that came up out of the sparsely populated earth and had two horns like a lamb, the separation of church and state powers, and it spoke like the dragon, Imperial Rome. Soon church and state will unite as they did in Rome and the Judaeo-Roman church will rule the image of the beast "and devour the whole earth, and tread it down, and break it in pieces" (Daniel 7:23; Daniel 13:15-18; 17:3-6). In 1933 Brother Branham reported "The last and seventh vision was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:3).
Also in 1933 Brother Branham prophesied concerning the San Andreas Fault and "the greatest earthquake since men were upon the earth." This will mark the close of the Gentile dispensation, causing an eruption of the Pacific Ring of Fire with tidal waves sweeping the oceans (Revelation 16:18; Luke 21:25-26). In 1965 he said, "Just as sure as I was standing there under that Inspiration, put judgment on that West Coast, and then followed it right up here with the sinking of Los Angeles, she is gone! That's right. It will happen. When? I don't know" (Ashamed, p. 9:58).
Pastor Harry Van Der Stel in Rotterdam told me that he saw a Russian Commander interviewed on television who explained how he had navigated his submarine many miles inland beneath Los Angeles.
Blood Moon Tetrads and Triples and Solar Eclipses
April 2, 2015 NASA says there will be 12,064 lunar eclipses between -1999BC and +AD3000. Of these 12,064 lunar eclipses, 3,479 will be total lunar eclipses. That's an average of less than one total lunar eclipse per year. It is an average of 2.5 lunar eclipses per year of "total plus partial" lunar eclipses.
During that time there will be 142 Lunar Tetrads (four total lunar eclipses in a row, with no intervening partial lunar eclipse). 62 will occur between AD1 and AD2100. Of the 62, 8 will occur on Biblical Feast Days, so they are called "Biblical Tetrads." The 8th "Biblical Tetrad" occurs in 2014-2015 and there will not be another "Biblical Tetrad" for almost 600 years. We are in the time of this tetrad now.
The chances of any lunar eclipse occurring on any particular day, whether total or partial, is less than 3/365. The chances of one occurring on particular days 4 times in a row would be 3/365 x 3/365 x 3/365 x 3/365 = or about one in 100 x 100 x 100 x 100 = one in 100 million days, or once in 273,000 years. Nevertheless they have occurred on the first day of Passover and Tabernacles 7 times since 1 AD, and are getting ready to occur again in 2014 and 2015. Statistically, they should probably NEVER HAPPEN . . . Full story: jesusonmymind.com rapturewatch.net
The 'Squeeze': Covert FEMA Camp Roundup Drills in Florida
March 31, 2015 This video shows Blackhawk helicopters flying low and landing as Americans are marched single file through the city streets then loaded into white vans and taken to a mock internment camp. The location was not disclosed to the public prior to the Urban Warfare training exercise. 200 personnel from all four branches of the military took part in this coordinated drill . . .
The Sentinel reported that "The goal is to prepare participants in realistic, unfamiliar training conditions before they deploy for combat overseas," but concerned citizens aren't buying it and believe there is a dual purpose for the action and that is to train soldiers for real life domestic martial law. Likewise it is important to note the Jade Helm Exercises have recently labeled Texas and Utah as "hostile" territories in documents related to that exercise . . . Full story: youtube.com
ISIS: 'Sunni' Muslim Militia 'Made in America' nothing to do with Sunni Islam
March 19, 2015 Who employed ISIS to wreck havoc in the Middle East?
Why is it that the US government and its NATO allies cannot seriously fight ISIS in Iraq, Syria and the rest of the Levant? ISIS is US-made monster! The ISIS Caliphate is never an Islamic Caliphate. It is a "US-made Caliphate" that does not have any binding authority whatsoever over worldwide Muslims.
It is known truth that the CIA constantly backs-up and supports all known so-called jihadist groups from the Taliban of Afghanistan and Pakistan, to even Jemaa Islamiyya and Al-Qaeda in the Middle East, and the Boko Haram of Nigeria. That is why US will never seriously fight these monsters it created. US is the invisible director of all international terrorism groups so that these monsters can commit crimes mercilessly and with impunity against humanity. These monsters are made alive and sustained by American dollars and ably, yet subtly directed by the master of the puppetry: US' invisible hegemonic hand!
NATO is in unholy partnership with the CIA operators who are currently training, arming, funding and equipping thousands of ISIS combatants from Europe to overthrow secular and socialist Syria as part of the CIA ploy called "Arab Spring"—which is nothing but a covert ideological operation to conquer the Middle East and Central Asia, its oil reserves, its pipeline corridors as part of an imperial agenda. (On The Trans-Afghan pipeline see Michel Chossudovsky, "America's War on Terrorism," chapter 5, pp. 65-91).
Therefore, who is supporting this ISIS militia, who is equipping them, who is funding them so heftily?
For what purpose are they doing these despicable acts? If they are truly Islamic fighters bent on fighting for the rights of Islam and the Muslims, then why do they bomb Sunni Muslim mosques, Sufi Muslim shrines and Shi'ite Muslim prayer halls of their co-religionists? . . .

Full Disclosure: 'US in Grave Danger.' Paul Hellyer
March 22, 2015 Today, Paul Hellyer, Canada's former Minister of National Defense warns of an Orwellian New World Order run by banker elites and their masters of war with designs on our personal freedoms. "They don't want any change," says Hellyer.
He ends with a plea to urge the Harper government and legislators everywhere not to let current free trade agreements go forward. "That is high treason," he says. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: Paul Hellyer is lacking in history and Scripture and his good intentions will turn to the account of the Vatican.
WTC 7: Nano-Thermite Evidence Admitted
March 14, 2015 In an article titled "Madness in the Royal Library" published in the Danish newspaper Weekendavisen on December 7, 2012, journalist Søren Villemoes accused esteemed chemist Dr. Niels Harrit of being a "crackpot" for daring to conclude that the destruction of three World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001, was a controlled demolition.
Harrit, a 40-year professor of chemistry at the University of Copenhagen and co-author of a scientific paper on the nano-thermite found in dust samples taken from Ground Zero, filed a libel lawsuit against both the newspaper's editor, Anne Knudsen, and the offending journalist. After he lost his case in City Court on August 16, 2013, he appealed to the Danish High Court . . . Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth informed Harrit's supporters of the impending appeal and helped raise funds . . . to pay his legal expenses . . .
On April 9, 2015, we will see whether the system of justice in Denmark protects the free speech of the common man or continues the deception that has plunged the world into an endless "War on Terror." Hopefully, we will one day look back on this date as the occasion when the Danish High Court acknowledged that skepticism about the official story of 9/11 is a legitimate way of thinking and ordered that it be protected within the Danish laws of free speech . . .

Jewish Action against Antisemites: 'Kick these Guys in the Ass'
March 25, 2015 Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein on Tuesday night urged Jews to stand together and act against antisemites, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "We better stand up and kick these guys in the ass," he said upon accepting the 'Humanitarian' Award . . ."
Weinstein admitted he was moved when he read The Atlantic Monthly's April cover story headlined 'Should the Jews leave Europe?' and a piece by New York Times columnist David Brooks about how to combat antisemitism . . . The co-head of The Weinstein Company said he believes it is time for Jews to band together with those Muslims "who are honorable and peaceful." He noted that while Jews must be understanding of their "Arab brothers and our Islamic brothers, we also have to understand that these crazy bastards . . ." Full story: algemeiner.com

Revelation Chapter 19:1 20:5
Brother Branham wrote: "I DENY UPON THE INFALLIBLE EVIDENCE OF THE WORD THAT THERE IS MORE THAN ONE MAJOR PROPHET-MESSENGER WHO WILL REVEAL THE MYSTERIES AS CONTAINED IN THE WORD, AND WHO HAS THE MINISTRY TO TURN THE HEARTS OF THE CHILDREN TO THE FATHERS. "Thus saith the Lord" by His unfailing Word stands, and shall stand and be vindicated. There is one prophet-messenger to this age." Today we will study Revelation 19:1 to 20:5 verse by verse from the perspective of Christ's Bride based on the expositions of Brother Branham, followed by a scriptural study. Thereafter we will examine Revelation 19 from the perspective of the 144,000 elect Israelites. Our study is set in the latter half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. Almost seven years have passed since Israel was defeated and made an unarmed neutral country, and since the United States mainland was invaded, defeated and briefly occupied by Russia. The first resurrection, manifestation of the Sons of God and translation followed; then Satan was cast down to earth incarnate in the pope. His Judaeo-Roman Catholic church restored peace through a confederation of world religions whereupon he was universally acclaimed president of the one world government Jesus had refused (Matthew 4:8-9). Next he confirmed a seven-year covenant with non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jewish banksters of the City of London. I bring these Old and New Testaments prophecies to mind in order to show the compassion President Putin and a nominally Christian Russian Federation will extend the then crippled Jew-controlled decadent and apostate USA, UK, EU and their 'allies' so-called, because today's study is set after Rome and her image, the federation of (once) Protestant churches and the USA abrogate their covenant with the self-styled Jewish banksters. In Revelation 20:1-5 we see the binding of Satan for the duration of the millennium. Revelation 20:1, "And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, and cast him into the abyss, and shut it, and sealed it over him, so that he should deceive the nations no longer, until the thousand years were completed: and after that he must be released for a short time." We will now compare Revelation 19:1 20:5 with other scriptures, first from the perspective of Christ's Bride. The first great judgment on "Mystery, Babylon the Great, mother of harlots and abominations of the earth" which is the antithesis of Christianity in a hypocritical disguise (Revelation 17:1-5; 18:1-20, 21; Matthew 24:24; II Thessalonians 2:3-7), came after the false church abrogated her covenant with the Jewish banksters in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Daniel 9:27). The Black Nobility then "hated the whore" and in alliance with Judaeo-Communist Russia, "made her desolate and naked, and ate her flesh and burnt her with [nuclear] fire" (Revelation 17:11-18; 18:9, 17-19). This is now followed in Revelation 19:11-21 by a second special judgment upon the beast and the false prophet. In Revelation 20:1-5 we see the binding of Satan for the duration of the millennium. "And I saw an angel [Christ (Revelation 1:8; 10:1)] come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit [now transferred from Satan's hands as his kingdom is defeated and he is under constraint throughout the millennium because his followers are in the grave and he is powerless to harm or influence glorified saints (Revelation 9:1)] and a great chain in his hand." [It is this "chain of circumstances" that binds Satan until the thousand years are fulfilled by the general resurrection. Meanwhile, throughout the millennium, "earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea" (Habakkuk 2:14]. We will now consider Revelation 19 from the perspective of the 144,000 elect Israelites. Revelation 19:1-16, "After these things [Israel's tribulation under her Seventh Trumpet, Satan's casting down to earth, the Three Woes in World Wars I, II, and III, her revelation of the Seven Vials poured on the non-elect throughout the Gentile dispensation to separate the adulterous false church of Rome from the foolish virgin and to reveal Christ's virgin Bride, and the calling-out of 144,000 elect Israelites who fulfill the sixfold purpose of Gabriel's visit to Daniel (Daniel 9:24) and martyrdom. I . . . (your name here) . . . heard the voice of a great throng in heaven, crying, Hallelujah!"
"On the basis of human behavior alone, anyone knows that where there are many people there is even divided opinion on lesser points of a major doctrine which they all hold together. Who then will have the power of infallibility which is to be restored in this last age, for this last age is going to go back to manifesting the Pure Word Bride? That means we will have the Word once again as it was perfectly given, and perfectly understood in the days of Paul. I will tell you who will have it. It will be a prophet as thoroughly vindicated, or even more thoroughly vindicated than was any prophet in all the ages from Enoch to this day, because this man will of necessity have the capstone prophetic ministry, and God will show him forth. He won't need to speak for himself, God will speak for him by the voice of the sign [a prophet is a sign of judgment and if he is a true prophet God will vindicate his voice as his 'third pull'; Exodus 4:8-9]. Amen" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 329).
"The original wheat seed of Pentecost was to come back in the last age. It had been buried at Nicaea. It sent up a shoot at Sardis. It grew a tassel at Philadelphia, and it was to mature at Laodicea. But it could not be back to the original until the Word was restored. The prophet had not yet come upon the scene. But now according to the time wherein we stand in the Laodicean Age, the 'Prophet-messenger' of Revelation 10:7 must already be in the land. Once more "Thus saith the Lord" must be here, ready to be manifested with infallible vindication. Thus is the True Seed already maturing, and THEN THE HARVEST."
"Harvest time. Yes, harvest time. The two vines that grew together and intertwined their branches are now to be separated. The fruits of those vines which were at such variance will be gathered into separate garners. The two spirits will go to their separate destinations. Now it is time to heed the final call that comes only to the Wheat Bride, "Come out of her My people that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye (wheat) receive not her (tares) plagues (the great tribulation of the Sixth Seal and Matthew 24)" (ibid, p. 364-364:1).
Like Esau, Rome and the 'exceptional' country will have come to a place of no repentance: European nations into which the Imperial Roman Empire divided will forsake the great harlot and the USA for Russia, as will the Jewish banksters and Black Nobility. Bible readers note universal ferment against the corrupt IMF, WB and BIS of the Jews' Babylonian fractional reserve system of usury and fiat money versus a BICCS alternative China-sponsored Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), and the coup in Jewry's real homeland of Khazaria (Ukraine and Georgia) as a move whereby Vatican City State and the 'exceptional' country will be blown from the face of the earth by a re-communized Russia; then Armageddon. The identity of Gog and Magog, the City of London's 'protectors' and their captive Russian bear is prominent in this annual parade.
It is essential that we distinguish the invasion of the United States at the time of Zechariah 14:1-2 and the earthquake that will sink Los Angeles in Revelation 18:21-23 from the nuclear annihilation of Vatican City and the United States some years later at the time of Revelation 18:17-19. (The Prophet spoke of the invasion of the USA in The Handwriting on the Wall, #14:7, p. 10:77-90; #29:5, p. 19:152-155, and elsewhere).
Revelation 19:1-16 portrays Christ's Bride of all Ages after the Wedding Supper rejoicing over the destruction of the great harlot, Papal Rome, and of course the annihilation of her image, the United States of America in chapter 18. Christ's end-time Bride is pictured as a W_O_R_D Bride in chapter 19 and the revelation of the Son of man thoroughly vindicated in William Branham's ministry such that some misguided followers actually mistook him for Jesus Christ. Here the heavenly Bridegroom Warrior-Prince accompanied by His earthly Bride prepares to do battle with the Beast:
In The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit to Daniel, p. 77:133-136 Brother Branham taught, "After the seventy weeks, the Bride appears in Revelations the 19th chapter, the 1st and the 16th verse. She arrives with her Bridegroom, the mighty King . . . Here's where the Bride will come, after this. See? After the millennium sets in, then Christ comes back with the Bride. Right . . ."
[The Prophet explained: "The Coming of Christ ushers in the millennium . . . when Jesus appears it'll be the returning back . . . the Wedding Supper's over, then He returns back after the
Jewish Israelite remnant" (The Sardisean Church Age, p. 343:67-68; Revelation Chapter Four, Part I, p. 574:132-187; An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 41; 322:4). "The millennium sets in" or is "ushered in" by the rebirth of 144,000 elect Israelites in one day when they recognize Christ's second or parousia Coming by faith (Zechariah 12:9-14; Revelation 1:7; 11:13; 15-19); this is not the physical return of the glorified Man.
He said, "Where is that one that's going to sow that seed for that end-time church? Where is that ripening seed, that promised Elijah [of Malachi 4:5-6 and Matthew 17:11]? And immediately after his days shall the great tribulation set in and burn the earth. And then at the return of the Church and the Bride, the Bride and Christ shall walk out upon their ashes in the millennium, when the earth is purified by fire [Malachi 4:1-3]. And there they shall reign. And the heathens that's never heard the Gospel shall be raised in that time [in the general resurrection (The Ten Virgins, p. 464:201-203; COD, p. 970:222-224)], and the sons of God will be manifested. If he's to reign, he's got to have something to reign over; he's got a domain [which will be the "saved" non-elect who will be granted in to eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment. "And they ruled and reigned with Christ," and Christ ruled with a rod of iron the nations . . . Then the manifested sons of God with the authority just like He had when He was here (See?), there will come the millennium in that reign (See?), upon the ashes" (COD. 723:178)].
"And after these things . . . (After this tribulation, after the Woes, after the Seals, after the Plagues, after the casting out of Satan, after the setting up of the millennium. Watch.) "And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:"
"For true and righteous are Thy judgments: for He had judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of His servants at her hand."
"And again . . . they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up forever and ever . . . (That's the old prostitute church.) . . . her smoke rose up . . . And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that set upon the throne, saying, Amen; Hallelujah."
"And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye His servants, and ye that fear Him, both small and great. And I heard as it was the voice of a great multitude . . . (Listen. Here you are, Church. After she went up in the third chapter, [All seven Church Ages, Christ's mediation and Redemption ended at Revelation 3:22 when the last saint predestinated to the Laodicean Church Age was baptized into Christ. The end-time Bride and 144,000 elect Israelites were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary because we were foreknown as receiving the fullness of the Word in the revelation of the Seven Seals or the Seven Trumpets by our respective prophets], here she comes. See?) . . . And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a mighty thundering, saying, Hallelujah: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. (Hallelujah. Watch. The marriage [Supper] of the Lamb comes now. Here she comes.)"
"Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come [to pass], and His wife has made herself ready [for the Wedding Supper]. (Here she comes, both Bride and Bridegroom.) And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is . . . righteousness of saints. And he said unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the wedding supper of the Lamb. And he said unto me. These are . . . true sayings of God. And I fell down at the feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou doeth it not: I am of thy fellowservant . . . thy brethren and have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
[As you will recall, John represents Christ's end-time Bride throughout the Book of Revelation so the one who fell down before the seventh angel Brother Branham was one of his confused followers who imagined that he actually was Christ. The fulfillment of this event is recounted in two sermons "Revelation Chapter Five," Parts I (MP3 audio) and II (pdf transcript)].
"And I saw heaven opened, and . . . a white horse; and he that set thereon . . . was called Faithful and True, and . . . righteousness does he judge and make war."
"And his eyes was as flames of fire, and . . . his head was many crowns; . . . (He was crowned what? King of kings.) . . . and He had a Name written, that no man knowed, but . . . himself. And He was clothed with white vesture dipped in blood: and His Name is called The Word of God . . . ("In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God; and the Word was made flesh and dwelled among us." Who was it? Jesus.) . . . and His Name is called The Word of God".
"And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. (Glory. Here He comes.)"
"And out of His mouth will go a sharp sword, that . . . it . . . should smite the nations: and . . . shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God the All-ruler. And He had on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KING, AND LORD OF LORDS".
"What was it? [By revelation of His parousia (Zechariah 12:9-14; Revelation 1:7; 11:13; 15-19; ibid, p. 36:2 41:6)] His people [Israel] had just crowned Him King of king and Lord of Lord, coming back to His holy Temple, anointed with the Presence of God to live and to reign through the millennium with His Church. Amen. [Christ's end time Bride also crowned Him by revelation of His parousia Coming at the end of the age (Anointed Ones at the End Time, p. 44:205; Revelation 5:8-14). The Church Age saints could not "come into the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God" for the Book was sealed and with imperfect revelation their acceptance and baptism into Christ required intercession]. The appearing with the mighty King to take Her place at His side, the new royal anointed Temple . . . [Christ and His Bride are "the Most Holy Place" anointed by Israel's joy at the revelation of God manifest in the glorified flesh of His Family. He will be worshipped in this form throughout eternity (Daniel 9:24; John 14:1-3; I Corinthians 6:19; Revelation 21:22)]. Now, the sixfold purpose of Revelations 6:1 to Revelations 19:21 is fulfilled. Listen."
"Now in closing, the Seven Seals, Seven Trumpets, Seven Vials, Three Woes, woman in the sun, casting out of the Devilor the red dragon, comes between these times during the great tribulation period. Don't forget it. All these things take place during this time, but here is the sixfold purpose of His coming. Do you believe it? What a glorious time lays in store for those who love the Lord. I tell you, friends, we can't afford to miss that. Don't miss that for whatever you do".
Brother Branham said, "Everything will be killed before the millennium. Then the righteous shall come out in the millennium and live a thousand years."
"And after the thousand years, then the great white throne judgment comes, and then the dead, both right and wrong is raised. And the books are opened, and the Book of Life was open; and the saints, the Wife and the Husband, set and judge the world. And there it comes to pass the saying: "And He'll judge all nations with a rod of iron." All nations shall stand before Him there, and He'll judge them with the rod of iron. He'll separate the sheep from the goats and say to the goats, "Depart," and the sheeps, "Come, ye blessed of My Father."
"Now then, there will be a camp meeting of the saints upon the breadth of the earth. And Satan is loosed out of his prison and goes to make war again with the saints, just exactly what he done in glory to begin with. And then God rains fire and brimstone out of the heavens and the whole earth is . . . just burnt up and destroyed. And there's no more sea, no more water, no more nothing left on the earth. Volcanic will spray and burst and blow and the whole thing . . ." (COD, p. 1045:233-235; Matthew 25:31-33; Revelation 20:7-15).
Revelation 19:17-21 show God's judgment executed on the beast and the false prophet whereby they are cast alive into the Lake of Fire with no opportunity to appeal at the white throne judgment after which the Lord slays the remnant by "the Sword of the Spirit which is the spoken Word" and Armageddon.
"And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a great voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in mid-heaven, Come and gather yourselves together to the supper of the great God; that you may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great."
Brother Branham refers us to Revelation 2:18-20 where the fate of Roman Catholics and (once) Protestants are typed by Jezebel who was eaten by dogs according to Elijah's prophecy (I Kings 21:17-24; II Kings 9:30-37). "After the death of this last Church Age . . . their dead bodies are destroyed by wild beasts. You know that. That's true. Like theirs had the type of [pagan] Jezebel [and Israelite Ahab] . . . Jezebel in the type of the modern church of today because Catholic and Protestants are joined together now . . . Now we notice, killed by a command of God, was Jezebel . . . The first Elijah was a rejected man by the churches. And Jezebel and Ahab were head of them churcheschurch and state, all together. And Elijah revealed Ahab's sins to him and commanded the whole church turn back to the true Word [as did Brother Branham, the fourth 'Elijah']. . ."
"Now if you want to see their bodies, let's turn over here to Revelation 19 after the Word slays them. Now, the Word is going to kill them. You know that. All right now, you just watch and see what happens when Christ coming in Revelation 19, beginning with the seventeenth verse . . . Just exactly like Ahab and Jezebel was in the natural so are they to be in the spiritual form of church . . . type of the antitype todayout of the whole world there was only seven thousand saved of Elijah's preaching . . ." (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 326:1-328:3).
"We are busted in this nation, just about. We're borrowing on tax that'll be paid in forty years from now . . . sending to foreign aid . . . You don't buy fellowship" (Lean not to Thy Own Understanding, p. 1:78). "Trying to tax people to get money to send over yonder to buy friendship with our enemies; they're throwing it back in our face: one world war, two world wars, and still moving on to a third one" (This Day this Scripture is Fulfilled, p. 16:132).
"Our nation is not secure. We've thought we were. So did the Babylonian Kingdom think so, but all the time there was a wicked nation working. And there's been a wicked nation working, until now we know that they're ahead of us, and we're at their mercy" (The Handwriting on the Wall, #14:7, p. 14:107).
"Russia . . . according to our own science is five years ahead of us. And when we're caught up in five years, they'll be ten years farther the other way. God is letting an ungodly nation, letting an ungodly people, that took those Jewish scientists up there . . . And they're far ahead of us. We're putting our time to wine, women, and big time, and they're working day and night, how to blow us up. There's not one thing that could keep them from doing it right now. Look the condition we're in, the whole nation" (The Handwriting on the Wall, 29:5, p. 15:121).
The Prophet further explained, "The Tree of Knowledge produced death. Cain killed his brother, Abel. The wicked killed the righteous. It set a pattern. It will keep that pattern until the restoration of all things as spoken by the prophets [Acts 3:19-23]."
"The Tree of Knowledge produced clever men; men of renown. But their ways are the ways of death. God's people are simple but spiritual minded, leaning toward God and nature, calmly tilling the soil, caring for truth rather than wealth. The seed of the serpent has brought tremendous commerce, wonderful inventions, but with it all comes death. Their gunpowder and atomic bombs kill in war; and in peace time their mechanical inventions, such as the car, kill even more in a time of peace than do the inventions of war destroy in times of trouble. Death and destruction are the fruits of her labors."
"But they are religious. They believe in God. They are like their father, the Devil, and their ancestor, Cain. Both of them believed in God. They go to church. They mingle with the righteous as do tares mingle with the wheat. In so doing they corrupt and produce a Nicolaitane religion. They spread their poison in every effort to destroy the seed of God even as Cain killed Abel. There is no fear of God before their eyes" (ibid. p. 107:1-3).
"Red Sea and all these things they're putting out the materials that's there, the Jews real rich, then that same thing will pollute their camp again. Yeah. They'll come right down, the cities of the world. Russia will come down, say, "We just got to have that stuff. That's uranium and everything down there; we got to go get it." And as they go down, then will be the battle of Armageddon. That'll be when God will stand like He did in the valley for the children of Israel and fight again" (COD, p. 77:111).
Revelation 19:19, "And I saw 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."
After the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled international Jews and the NATO nations "hate the whore, [and abandon the EU and the United States they will re-communize Russia] and make Vatican City State desolate and naked, and eat her flesh, and burn her [along with her US image] with nuclear fire" (Daniel 2:40-43; Revelation 17:16-18). Concerning the Sixth Vial of Revelation 16:12-16 Brother Branham explained "There is three isms: Communism, Fascism, and Nazism. They'll all wind up out of Russia, in Communism, and it will destroy Catholicism" (The Voice of the Sign, #23:5, p. 14:116; Revelation 18:16-20). Jesus prophesied, "the Kings of the East" would be gathered by three unclean spirits that come out of the mouth of Imperial Rome, Papal Rome and the beast, to unite with the kings of the whole earth together in a place called Armageddon to war against Jerusalem, capital of one world government where the beast and the false prophet are, then against Christ and the saints coming down out of heaven.
Verse 20, "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought signs in his presence, with which he misled them that received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image: the two were cast alive into the Lake of Fire that burns with brimstone" (Daniel 7:9-14; The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 247:4-6; 291:5; Serpent's Seed, p. 4:23).
Verse 21, "And the remnant were slain with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat upon the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh".
The Prophet said, "Cain's children were wisdom, scientific . . . The same thing they're doing right now. Their atomic bombs and things . . . will destroy the whole race of people."
"They got fallout right now that's you just burn your eyes out, give you cancer, everything. They turned enough of it loose in the ocean; they can't even find it no more. When it gets loose it'll destroy the whole world, they say. People will burn up in their own flesh. No wonder the Bible said, "And the fowls of the air will eat upon the captain's flesh," and so forthrot from fallout and everything else" (Wisdom Versus Faith, p. 60:1-2).
Brother Branham explained, "When Israel's transgression has come to an end, Satan, who is their accuser and our accuser, Satan will be sealed up in the bottomless pit . . . bringing in everlasting righteousness, something that cannot end . . . Habakkuk the 2nd chapter and the 14th verse, I believe it is, I want to read. When this takes place . . . Watch. "For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge and the glory of the Lord, as the waters covers the sea" (The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit to Daniel, p. 64:97, 101).
"Satan is bound for a little season, a thousand years, 'cause his subjects is all in hell, and the church that's on earth is redeemed and right in the Presence of Christ, so he has nothing he can work on. So it's not a chain, as I said, a log chain; it's a chain of circumstance; he has nothing he can do. He's helpless and hopeless, just waiting for the resurrection of the subjects; then they're separated as the sheep from the goats" (COD, p. 1,094:150; Matthew 25:31-32).
"And I saw thrones, and they [Christ and His Bride (Daniel 7:9; Matthew 19:28; I Corinthians 6:2; Revelation 3:21)] sat down upon them, and judgment was given to them: and I saw the souls of them those who had been beheaded on account of the witness of Jesus, and on account of the Word of God, and who had not worshipped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark upon their forehead, and upon their hand (Revelation 13:12, 15, 16); and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years (Revelation 3:21). The rest of the dead lived not until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrection".
The revelation of the Seven Vials exposed the harlot church to the elect Israelites for what she was; her consummation allowed the virgin Wife of Christ to at last appear without spot or blemish as Israel's Queen. Until this point her simple, retired existence as in a wilderness, had been concealed by the worldly splendour and terrible power of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and her (once) Protestant daughtersmaterially rich and in need of nothing (Revelation 3:17; 18:5-16).
Brother Branham said, "After these things [after the Message of the seventh angel (Revelation 18:4)], "Come out of her!"
"After these things" is the shout of the Bride saints, with the Bridegroom, going to the Marriage [Supper] of the Lamb" (Why am I against Organized Religion, p. 39:219-220). "I heard as a great voice of a great throng in the heaven [the Bride of all Ages (Revelation 11:15; 7:9-12; Jeremiah 51:49), crying, Hallelujah! The salvation, and the glory, and power of our God" (Psalm 104:35).
"For true and just are His judgments: for He judged the great harlot, that corrupted the earth with her idolatry, and He has avenged the blood of His servants at her hand ["That's the ending of the Catholic church" (Why are we not a Denomination, p. 24:110; Deuteronomy 32:43; II Thessalonians 1:4-12)].
"And a second time they said, Hallelujah. And her smoke ascends into the ages of the ages (Revelation 14:11; 18:9, 18). And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God who sits on the throne, saying, Amen; Hallelujah!"
"And a voice came forth from the throne, saying, Give praise to our God, all His servants, and those that fear Him, the small and the great. And I heard as the voice of a great throng [the Bride of all Ages], and as a voice of many waters, and as a voice of strong thunderings, saying, Hallelujah: for the Lord our God the All-ruler has assumed the Kingdom."
"Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb has come to pass, and His Wife has made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. And he [William Branham, whose voice came from the throne (Revelation 1:1, 11)] told me, Write, Blessed are they which are called to the Supper of the Marriage of the Lamb. And he said to me, These Words are THUS SAITH THE LORD".
[In contrast to the gaudy "fine linen, and purple, and scarlet decked with gold and precious stones and pearls" of the harlot church, Christ's Bride must be clad by faith in the simplicity of the Message He has given us through the Prophet of Revelation 10:7. More than this, we must be sanctified thereby with the Token of the Life of Christ on display (Revelation Chapter Four Part I, p. 561:61-91)].
"And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said to me, Do not do that: I am a fellow servant of yours, and of your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." As explained above, this was fulfilled by some misguided followers of the Message, and Brother Branham brought correction.
The first ten verses of the prophecy of this chapter describe what Christ's end-time Bride has heard the Prophet explain. Verses 11 to 21 describe a vision of events which as participants we shall see. Verses 11 to 16 narrate Christ's Second Advent or appearing. "After the Seventy Weeks the Bride appears in Revelation 19:1-16. She arrives with her Bridegroom, the Mighty King . . . after the millennium "sets in" [that is, once the nation of Israel is regenerated in one day]" (The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit to Daniel, p. 77:133; Isaiah 66:8; Zechariah 12:9-14; Revelation 1:7; 11:13; 15-19).
In Revelation 1 Christ was portrayed as Son of man and Judge in the holy convocation of the fiftieth day in the antitype of Israel's Pentecostal Feast after the seven Church Ages. Here in Revelation 19:11-16, since His servant nation has entered the faith of Jesus we see He is about to execute His judgment prophetically decked with many crowns over the nations. "Death means separation. And they had separated from Godnever could be back no more . . . see what the Serpent's seed done? . . . one against the otherthe Serpent's seed against the woman's seed" (COD, p. 834:197-198). "Divide and conquer" which in multiculturalism is a euphemism for miscegenation and genocide to Adam's race. As in our Hegelian sham democratic party political systems it is the conquest of "we the people"; in trades unions and professional associations it is a mechanism for control by the hidden hand; as deployed in our unjust adversarial courts it is foolish dishonesty; as in religionall such is "of the Devil" who is the adversary of God and Adam's race!
Revelation 19:11-16, "And I saw the heaven opened, and behold a white horse [the symbol of a victorious Roman general leading his army in triumphal procession from the Forum to the temple of Jupiter on Capitoline Hill; ironically this General is Israel's victorious King Jesus Messiah, not on the earth, coming down from heaven with resurrected saints, vindicated Word, after Rome's defeat and destruction]; and He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war."
"His eyes as a flame of fire [penetrate and search out every person. No one can escape His vision and judgment], and on His head were many diadems [of absolute global sovereignty, not the victor's crown (Gk.) 'stefanos']; and He had a Name written, that no man knew, but he himself. [It is a revelation]. And He was [permanently] clothed [in royal splendour] with a robe dipped in the blood [of His enemies which He alone is about to shed (Isaiah 63:1-6; 34; Revelation 14:20): and His Name is called The Word of God." [Now, remember, His Name wasn't the Word of God, His Name was called that (The Patmos Vision, p. 109:196). For He and the Word is the same. Now notice, it is not His names, but His Name!" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 221:4-5).
"And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean (Daniel 2:44; II Thessalonians 1:7, 10). And out of His mouth goes a sharp sword [the fire of His Word executing judgment for unbelief in His Word (Hebrews 4:12; Isaiah 11:4; John 12:48, after the martyrdom of the 144,000), that with it He should smite the nations in the wrathful indignation of God brought to decision by Christ at the uprising of the nations in wrath at His appearing (Revelation 11:18): and He shall shepherdize the heathens with a rod of iron [rather than a wooden staff (Psalm 2:8-9)]: and He treads the winepress of the All-ruler (Revelation 14:19-20; Isaiah 63:1). And He has on His robe and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS".
As the Creator God manifest in glorified virgin-born flesh it is a small thing that He is "King of kings and Lord of lords," so His title is worn not on His crowns or on His brow, but as a passing decoration on His robe dyed with the blood of His enemies by which He achieved dominion over the kingdoms of the earth. And upon His thigh where kings wore their sword whose hilt bore their name for they ruled by right of the sword like the US image to the beast of Rome and "the ten violent democratic leaders who will receive authority as kings one hour with the beast" (Revelation 17:12). So Christ's thigh bears the "Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God" by which He rules, bearing His title "King of kings and Lord of lords."
In Revelation 19:17-21 we see judgment executed on the beast and the false prophet who are cast alive into the Lake of Fire before Armageddon and the white throne judgment. All life will be killed in Armageddon by the Word of the Lord, and following the millennium they will be raised in the general resurrection and judged at the white throne judgment in the bodies in which they had lived.
Revelation 19:17-18, "And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in mid-heaven, Come, be gathered unto the great supper of God (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 14:9-11; 18:4); that you may eat flesh of kings, and flesh of captains, and flesh of strong men, and flesh of horses and their riders, and flesh of all, free and bond, both small and great" (Isaiah 34; Ezekiel 39:17-20; Zephaniah 1:7-8; Romans 2:11).
[Just one angel with the Word, like Moses, as Brother Branham explained, "He got one man. He can't get two or three different minds. He takes one man. Moses had the Word, and Moses alone . . . In the Old Testament God was hid when He was on His mercy seatby a veil. In the Old Testament God was in His temple. But the people come in and worship like this; but remember, there was a veil (Amen.) that hid God. They knowed God was there. They couldn't see Him. That Pillar of Fire never appeared anymore there. Did you notice? There's not one time in the Scripture, from the time that Pillar of Fire went in behind that veil, that it ever showed again till it come from Jesus Christ. God was veiled."
"When He stood on earth, He said, "I come from God and I go to God" . . . And one time, [prior to Calvary when there was no redemption] if a man walked through that veil, it was sudden death. Now, it's death not to go through it . . . And today the veil of tradition hides the Word again, saying, "It's not so." But it is so. God's testifying of it, blasting Hisself right out as bright as the sun before everyone, and they fail to see it. God, be merciful to us."
"In type, Moses coming from the Presence of God with the Word of God for that age . . . Moses is coming from the Presence of God . . . coming forth, his face shined so. See? The Word was in him, ready to be manifested, give out to the people . . . Moses had to put a veil over his own face. Why? He was that Word. Amen. Until that Word was made known, Moses had to veil himself. Amen. Do you see it? Wherever the Word is, it's veiled . . ."
"It's been veiled through these ages according to what God said, and it would be opened in the last days; those Seven Seals would be broke, and the full thing would come into view of the people, what's took place all along. The hour of the seventh angel's Message, all the mysteries of God should be made known in that Elijah, in this last hour: how that Christ is put out of His church as Son of God; how He's revealed as Son of man again; how that the Church is to be put in order, and everything for the last day, and no creed, no denominations, just absolutely the Word living in the individual. "I'll take one and leave one. I'll take this one and leave that one." See? It's just . . . There's no strings, no denominations, no bindings or nothing; it's the heart with God and Him alone. See? . . ."
"One day down on the river, before the ministry started, first revival, He appeared in the skies, identified Himself and give the commission. All these years I've hid it in my heart veiling Christ, same Pillar of Fire interpreting the Word, as promised. We're in the last days, just the coming of the Lord. And if you find yourself outside that veil, which is death to stay out, will you by faith this morning, say, "By God's help. And with Your help, Lord, I want to break through that veil. I want to get in where you're at to see the full Word of God"? (The Unveiling of God, p. 17:105-106, 117, 128-130, 184, 362; Revelation 8:13; 14:9).
Revelation 19:19, "And I saw 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" (Revelation 16:14, 16; 17:14). Lucifer's one world government: Judaeo-Communism and Judaeo-antichristianity in union together with all religions and no religion at all, against Christ and His Bride of all agesnatural and spiritual Serpent seed versus the Seed of God (Isaiah 53:10; Galatians 3:29; note the ubiquitous all-seeing eye of Horus over Pope John Paul II's Assisi Meetings). According to the plans of Luciferians aspiring to undisputed world domination, after World War III they will provoke the greatest social cataclysm the world has ever known. The outcome, however, will not be according to their plan (Daniel 7:15-23).
Revelation 19:20-21, "And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet that wrought signs in his presence, with which he misled those who received the mark of the beast, and them that licked the hand of his [once Protestant and US] image: these two were cast alive into the Lake of Fire burning with brimstone (Daniel 7:11). "And the rest of earth's population was slain with the Sword of King Jesus seated upon the horse, the Sword of His spoken Word: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh".
Unlike the judgment upon the Great Whore which was of this world and historical, the judgment upon the beast and the false prophet is Supernatural and based upon the appearance of Christ and the glorified Church of all ages that introduces the transition-form between time and eternity, the millennium.
Paul warned, "See you do not refuse Him who has ascended to heaven and is speaking to you now. For if the Israelites did not escape when they refused to listen and heed God when He descended and warned and instructed them here on earth, much less shall we escape if we reject and turn our backs on Him who cautions and admonishes us from heaven. Then at Mount Sinai His voice shook the earth: but now he has promised, Yet once more I will shake not only the earth, but also the starry heaven. And this expression, Yet once more, indicates the final removal and transformation of all that can be shaken, that is, of that which has been created, in order that what cannot be shaken may remain and continue (Psalm 102:25-28). Let us therefore, receiving a kingdom that is firm and stable and cannot be shaken, offer to God pleasing service and acceptable worship, with modesty and pious care and Godly reverence and awe: for our God is a consuming Fire" (Hebrews 12:25-28).
The rejection of Jesus Christ by the churches that bore His Name at close of the Gentile dispensation introduced a parallel disruption in nature as at the crucifixion (Matthew 27:45-54). "There was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, the [full] moon [of Nisan 14] became like blood; and the stars of heaven fell to the earth, even as a fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale; the sky vanished like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved from its place" (Revelation 6:12-14).
The followers of the beast and the false prophet are not immediately cast into the Lake of Fire, which is Fire of the Spirit as well as combustion, only their flesh is killed by the Word of Christ. All of the birds and forces of earthly metamorphosis become satiated with their flesh, consuming the exanimate materials in order to convert them into a new form.
"And He laid hold on the dragon, the serpent of old, that is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, and cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal over him, that he mislead the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season [to gather his people for judgment, hereby their conduct distinguishes the "sheep-like" from the "goats"].
"And I saw thrones, and [Christ and His Bride] seated themselves, and judgment was given to them: and I saw the souls of them that had been beheaded on account of the witness of Jesus, and on account of the Word of God, and who had not served the beast, neither his image and received his mark upon the foreheads, or in their hand; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. [These are members of Christ's Bride who have been martyred over two thousand years of the tribulation (Matthew 24:22-29; Revelation 7:9-17). The rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection".
This Hebrew exclamation, "Praise Yah," uttered by God's martyred (Revelation 14:12-13; 15:1-5; 18:24) servant nation in connection with the parenthesis of chapters 17 and 18 is heaven's response to the call of Revelation 18:20, "Rejoice over Rome's fall, O heaven, O saints and apostles and prophets; for God has avenged you on her." Whereas in Revelation 18:9 and 18 her smoke rose up in a historical sense, in Revelation 14:11 and 19:3 "her smoke will [metaphorically] rise up forever and ever," signifying her fate is final. This Hebrew expression, found nowhere else in the New Testament, is a probable allusion to Psalm 149:5-9 at God's victory over the Great Harlot (Revelation 6:10).
Verse 1 echoes the six Psalms 103 108 called the "Great Hallelujah," sung especially at the Feast of Tabernacles, the type for heaven's rejoicing in contrast with the mourning of Babylon's lovers (Revelation 18:7-19). Receiving "the blessing of Abraham" (Genesis 28:4; Galatians 3:14) through the faith Jesus (LXX Deuteronomy 32:43) Israel sings in chorus with all of the Old and New Testament saints signified by the cherubim and the twenty-four elders (as in Revelation 5:8-14). "The salvation, and the glory, and the power of our God: for true and just are His judgments (Revelation 15:1-5): for He judged the great [Judaeo-Roman Catholic] harlot, that corrupted the earth with her fornication, and He avenged the blood of His servants at her hand. And a second time they said, Hallelujah. And her smoke ascends into the ages of the ages. And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God who sits on the throne, saying, Amen; Hallelujah." The last of seven major continuous visions God showed Brother Branham in 1933 has come to pass: God's servant, Judaeo-Communist Russia, has avenged "the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the Earth" by blasting Vatican City State and her United States image from the face of the Earth (Revelation 17:16; 18:8-20, 24; 19:3; ibid. p. 322:3).
From the aspect of the 144,000 there follows a retrospect to show that the Marriage of the Lamb was the regeneration of the individuals in Christ's Bride over two millennia, followed by the first resurrection, the translation and Wedding Supper in the Air. Now Christ the mighty General is to appear with His Wife in the military array mistakenly anticipated by Judeans in the days of His flesh. In this second parousia He will execute His judgment, seize and cast the beast the false prophet into the Lake of Fire alive, then He will slay the rest of humanity with the Sword of His mouth.
Acts 3:18-23, "God has fulfilled what He foretold by the lips of all the prophets, that His Christ was to suffer. Repent and turn about, that your sins may be blotted out, and that seasons of refreshing [typed by Israel's Feasts] may come from the Presence of the Lord; so that He may send the Christ, who was appointed for you, Jesus, who must remain in heaven until the universal restoration of which God spoke by the mouth of all His holy prophets. Moses said, 'The Lord God will raise up from among your brethren a prophet like me. Listen to everything He will tell you; and every soul that will not listen to that prophet will be destroyed [(Heb.) cherem] from among the people".
Having restored His people Israel, the Lord can turn His hand to purging earth's surface for Christ, His Bride and the redeemed of all ages to step out on the ashes of the proud and wicked for a thousand years of peace. nl884.htm
Today we will study Revelation 19:1 to 20:5 verse by verse from the perspective of Christ's Bride based on the expositions of Brother Branham, followed by a scriptural study. Thereafter we will examine Revelation 19 from the perspective of the 144,000 elect Israelites.
Our study is set in the latter half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. Almost seven years have passed since Israel was defeated and made an unarmed neutral country, and since the United States mainland was invaded, defeated and briefly occupied by Russia. The first resurrection, manifestation of the Sons of God and translation followed; then Satan was cast down to earth incarnate in the pope. His Judaeo-Roman Catholic church restored peace through a confederation of world religions whereupon he was universally acclaimed president of the one world government Jesus had refused (Matthew 4:8-9). Next he confirmed a seven-year covenant with non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jewish banksters of the City of London. I bring these Old and New Testaments prophecies to mind in order to show the compassion President Putin and a nominally Christian Russian Federation will extend the then crippled Jew-controlled decadent and apostate USA, UK, EU and their 'allies' so-called, because today's study is set after Rome and her image, the federation of (once) Protestant churches and the USA abrogate their covenant with the self-styled Jewish banksters.
In Revelation 20:1-5 we see the binding of Satan for the duration of the millennium.
Revelation 20:1, "And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, and cast him into the abyss, and shut it, and sealed it over him, so that he should deceive the nations no longer, until the thousand years were completed: and after that he must be released for a short time."
We will now compare Revelation 19:1 20:5 with other scriptures, first from the perspective of Christ's Bride.
The first great judgment on "Mystery, Babylon the Great, mother of harlots and abominations of the earth" which is the antithesis of Christianity in a hypocritical disguise (Revelation 17:1-5; 18:1-20, 21; Matthew 24:24; II Thessalonians 2:3-7), came after the false church abrogated her covenant with the Jewish banksters in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Daniel 9:27). The Black Nobility then "hated the whore" and in alliance with Judaeo-Communist Russia, "made her desolate and naked, and ate her flesh and burnt her with [nuclear] fire" (Revelation 17:11-18; 18:9, 17-19). This is now followed in Revelation 19:11-21 by a second special judgment upon the beast and the false prophet.
In Revelation 20:1-5 we see the binding of Satan for the duration of the millennium.
"And I saw an angel [Christ (Revelation 1:8; 10:1)] come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit [now transferred from Satan's hands as his kingdom is defeated and he is under constraint throughout the millennium because his followers are in the grave and he is powerless to harm or influence glorified saints (Revelation 9:1)] and a great chain in his hand." [It is this "chain of circumstances" that binds Satan until the thousand years are fulfilled by the general resurrection. Meanwhile, throughout the millennium, "earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea" (Habakkuk 2:14].
We will now consider Revelation 19 from the perspective of the 144,000 elect Israelites.
Revelation 19:1-16, "After these things [Israel's tribulation under her Seventh Trumpet, Satan's casting down to earth, the Three Woes in World Wars I, II, and III, her revelation of the Seven Vials poured on the non-elect throughout the Gentile dispensation to separate the adulterous false church of Rome from the foolish virgin and to reveal Christ's virgin Bride, and the calling-out of 144,000 elect Israelites who fulfill the sixfold purpose of Gabriel's visit to Daniel (Daniel 9:24) and martyrdom. I . . . (your name here) . . . heard the voice of a great throng in heaven, crying, Hallelujah!"
