Bible Believers' Newsletter 845
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are happy to have your company.
This week's news portrays the scenario for the end of the dispensation in biblical perspective: the situations in Palestine and the Ukraine, US belligerence, a limp US dollar, the world economy, negative national balance sheets, moral descent of man, rise of Papal power and presence, the approaching depression prophesied to be worse than the Great Depression, earthquakes of a magnitude unprecedented since the creation of man, martial law and universal warfare.
We had better cease senseless folly and invest time acquainting ourselves with Jesus and the "present truthwhat He is doing now" if we hope to exercise the 'third pull' then, because grace will be withdrawn from all but God's elect in the hour of the manifestation of the Sons of God.
In our main article, "The Spoken Word is mightier than the Sword," we examine two equal and opposite forces, namely, God incarnating Himself in His Kingdom by faith in His spoken Word while Satan has been incarnates himself through the beast system of universal false religion and lying propaganda until finally, after the close of the Gentile dispensation he will be incarnate in that man of sin, the son of perdition and world ruler.
Please forward several copies of this Newsletter to Christian friends and seekers of Truth while grace is still available.
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.
Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17
July 18, 2014 28 Australians are among 298 people aboard the Malaysia Airlines passenger jet that was shot down over Ukraine with the loss of all souls. Flight MH17 was en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when apparently blown out of the sky by a missile over rebel-held territory near Ukraine's border with Russia.

Comment: The Russian President was on the phone to Obama discussing other issues when it happened. Obama, who is behind the coup and civil war now has Russia compromised in what is certainly another black op engineered by those who planned three World Wars, three holohoaxes just in the 20th century, Pearl Harbour, the Gulf of Tonkin lie, 9/11, WMD, 7/7, Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, etc., etc., etc. Malaysia and Russia apparently have an especially warm relationship. This ongoing betrayal will eventually see the utter defeat of Israel and the invasion and brief occupation of the United States in the hot stage of World War III.
Who profits from Ukraine's War
July 12, 2014 The civil war now raging inside Ukraine is a turning-point in world history, regarding many different respects:
For one thing, this civil war was produced as the direct result of the 2014 coup in Ukraine that was carried out by the Obama Administration in much the same general way that the Eisenhower Administration had carried out the 1953 coup in Iran that installed the Shah there, but the impact of Obama's Ukrainian coup will be even bigger long-term than that earlier one produced (and we all live with that earlier one even today after the Shah's overthrow in 1979), because this one will either extend "the American Century" or else end it. ("The American Century" is the period of the US dollar's serving as the global reserve currency. Americans living today tend to take that for granted, but so too did the Brits when the pound was king, until their Empire collapsed). (And see this, for a shocker on the global-reserve-currency matter: the battle over this matter could actually split the Western Alliance itself).
Secondly, the Ukrainian coup and the ethnic-cleansing campaign now going on by the coup-government that we have installed there to impose our coup on the country's resistant local populations in the southeast, are even more clearly fascistic than was Eisenhower's coup and subsequent US reign in Iran, and are even more brutal than our previous coups, such as those that brought down Arbenz in Guatemala, and Allende in Chile. None of those previous coups entailed quite so blatant and widespread an ethnic-cleansing campaign following it, as Obama's coup in Ukraine does. There was no blatantly Hitlerite movement in any of those countries, but there is in Ukraine, and it now dominates the government. Ukraine is different.
And, thirdly (and we won't go beyond three), Obama's coup's being right next door to the other major nuclear power, Russiawhich is its real targetactually does pose the danger of a nuclear war between these two countries as a very possible outcome, which would destroy all of civilization. None of our earlier coups presented any threat of a nuclear war . . . Our side calls the residents of the [democratically-elected] Yanukovych-supporting areas "terrorists." Those are the people our Ukrainian regime bombs . . . This is not collateral damage in a war, but instead it's the targets of the Obama-initiated ethnic-cleansing campaign, to get rid of the people who voted for Yanukovych, to get them to die, or else to flee to Russia. Obama just doesn't want them to be voting when the next real election is held throughout Ukrainehe wants them to be gone by then (so that he can install a NATO nuclear-missile site there, a mere ten minutes away from being able to annihilate Moscow). And this is how that's done. It's a messy job. You just keep dropping bombs on them, and they'll get the message that they're not wanted by their new, Obama-installed, Ukrainian government. . .
The civil war in Ukraine is the military crux-point by which America's aristocracy aims to obliterate any possibility of opposition to its global supremacy. Dominance is what it's all aboutlocking in, for a long time to come, the American aristocracy's dominance, no matter how many peons may need to be killed in the enterprise to do so.

July 11, 2014 Either EU, US and Ukraine immediately accept Russia's conditions and begin to implement Russian FM initiatives, or, Russia will:
- Cancel all industrial orders in Ukraine. Ukraine's losses would be $15 billion per annum.
- Close its borders to Ukrainian products and those transiting thru Ukraine.
- Shut off gas to Ukraine.
- Require that Ukraine cover its $16.6 billion debt.
- No longer guarantee gas deliveries to EU for the coming Fall/Winter, until the debt is paid. Full story: novorus.info
Hundreds of anti-Israeli Demonstrators protest outside Embassy over Gaza
July 14, 2014 At least 17 people climbed on top of a London bus during the protest, with one [from Jews against Zionism] holding a banner which read: 'Judaism rejects the Zionist state and condemns its criminal siege and occupation' . . . Elsewhere today, some 3,000 protesters gathered in front of the Norwegian parliament in Oslo to call for an end to the violence, and 100 people demonstrated near the French Foreign Ministry in Paris. Others also gathered in Tunisia to voice their concern. Full story: dailymail.co.uk
Comment: Israel is attacking Gaza from the sea and air in addition to a military invasion.
Was Netanyahu Government behind Killings of the Three Israeli Teenagers?
July 13, 2014 'Operation Protective Edge' (OPE) directed against Gaza is reminiscent of the infamous 2001 Dagan Plan entitled 'Operation Justified Vengeance' in which the deaths of innocent Israeli civilians had been envisaged and foreseen by IDF military planners . . . Israeli civilian deaths are blamed on Hamas without evidence to justify military action against Gaza . . . Israeli press reports intimate that the three teenagers could have been executed by the Al Qaeda affiliated jihadist entity the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) . . . supported "covertly" as well "overtly" by the State of Israel . . . While ISIL is an Al Qaeda affiliated entity funded by [Jewish-ruled] Saudi Arabia and Qatar, retribution by Israel . . . was directed against Gaza rather than Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States.
. . . The Israeli military (IDF) is supporting the jihadist entity out of the occupied Golan Heights. Moreover, amply documented, there are Western and Israeli Special Forces within ISIL rebel ranks.
In March, an Austrian military officer of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) in the occupied Golan Heights "confirmed that Israel has provided large-scale logistical and military support to the [ISIL and Al Nusrah] terrorists and rebels in different parts of Syria." The UNDOF official confirmed the existence of "a joint operation room" between Israel and the Al Qaeda rebels pertaining to "the delivery of [Israeli] assistance to the terrorists" . . . Ironically, the same jihadist group which is reported to have kidnapped and killed the three teenagers is supported by Israel's IDF out of the occupied Golan Heights . . .

Comment: Is Israel's dastardly black op in Gaza slaughtering innocent civilians using US-made jet fighters, bombs and ammunition (under media distraction of the latest Ukraine black op) a strategy to steal Palestine's oil?
Brother Branham said, "The word of the little lamb (USA) that rose up in Revelations 13, a lamb. Probably a little horncivil and ecclesiastical power [united as "the image unto the beast" of Papal Rome with "eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things" (Daniel 7:8, 11; II Thessalonians 2:4)]. But after is lamb, freedom of religion and so forth. But after while, he spoke like a beast, like the dragon, and exercised all the power the dragon did before him, a bitter religious persecution [Revelation 13:15-18]. We're nearing that time. You remember, Church, that you're living in the best day that you've ever will live in, right now, until Jesus comes. It shall gradually . . . not gradually, but rapidly get worse and worse [With short term holidays at Camp FEMA].
When Russia goes down there to get that oil, look out. That's all she needs. That's what the prophet said it would do. And we're ready for it then. So Church, get ready to meet Christ. He's sending great revivals and meetings, and stirring the full Gospel people. Signs and wonders appearing everywhere, Great wonders to draw His people together. And one day He shall come, the deliverer (Angel of the Lord, #51-0502).
We've just moved to Heaven
July 9, 2014 This is what is written on the destroyed roof: "Excuse us, the owners of this house can't host any guest anymore, we just moved to heaven." This house was destroyed yesterday in an airstrike by the terrorist non-Semitic, anti-Semitic Zionist occupation, and the whole family, all seven members, was killed on July 9, 2014. This video shows the destruction and carnage being inflicted by the Israeli airstrikes on Gaza. Meanwhile on US ABC TV News Diane Sawyer misrepresents footage of Palestinian bombing victims as Israelis in yet another attempted genocide of Semitic people by G_d's 'chosen people' NOT. youtube.com
Press TV: What is your reaction on how things have unfolded now after three weeks where we have the three settlers found dead and you have now a reaction comingstill not provenbut many deducting that extreme settlers were responsible for this? An Israeli police spokesman has said that the main direction right now that Israeli police is looking at is whether the incident was criminal or nationalistic.
Gilad Atzmon: Yes, I can imagine that this is what the Israelis would do when a Palestinian is murdered by Israelis, either military forces or just settlers. They always try to find an outer motive that diverts attention from the murderous and genocidal and plunderous nature of the Jewish state. . . Full story: youtube.com facebook.com
Jewish Hate of Arabs proves: Israel must undergo Cultural Revolution
July 9, 2014 Without a revolution based on humanist values, the Jewish tribe will not be worthy of its own state. There are no words to describe the horror allegedly done by six Jews to Mohammed Abu Khdeir of Shoafat. Although a gag order bars publication of details of the terrible murder and the identities of its alleged perpetrators, the account of Abu Khdeir's family—according to which the boy was burned alive—would horrify any mortal. Anyone who is not satisfied with this description can view the horror movie in which members of Israel's Border Police are seen brutally beating Tariq Abu Khdeir, the murder victim's 15-year-old cousin. [youtube.com shows cowardly non-Semitic, anti-Semitic Israeli police brutally beating 15-year-old US citizen and Semitic Palestinian, Tariq Abu Khdeir].
The Israel Police was quick to label the murderers "Jewish extremists," meaning they aren't part of the herd; they are outliers, "wild weeds." This is the police's way of trying to justify a sin, to "make the vermin kosher." But the vermin is huge, and many-legged. It has embraced the soldiers and other young Israelis who overran the social media networks with calls for revenge and with hatred for Arabs. The vermin was welcomed by Knesset members, rabbis and public figures who demanded revenge. Nor did it skip over the prime minister, who declared "Vengeance for the blood of a small child, Satan has not yet created."

The vermin was welcomed by Knesset members, rabbis and public figures who demanded revenge. Nor did it skip over the prime minister, who declared "Vengeance for the blood of a small child, Satan has not yet created."
Abu Khdeir's murderers are not "Jewish extremists." They are the descendants and builders of a culture of hate and vengeance that is nurtured and fertilized by the guides of "the Jewish state": Those for whom every Arab is a bitter enemy, simply because they are Arab; those who were silent at the Beitar Jerusalem games when the team's fans shouted "death to Arabs" at Arab players; those who call for cleansing the state of its Arab minority, or at least to drive them out of the homes and cities of the Jews.
No less responsible for the murder are those who did not halt, with an iron hand, violence by Israeli soldiers against Palestinian civilians, and who failed to investigate complaints "due to lack of public interest." The term "Jewish extremists" actually seems more appropriate for the small Jewish minority that is still horrified by these acts of violence and murder. But they too recognize, unfortunately, that they belong to a vengeful, vindictive Jewish tribe whose license to perpetrate horrors is based on the horrors that were done to it.
Prosecuting the murderers is no longer sufficient. There must be a cultural revolution in Israel. Its political leaders and military officers must recognize this injustice and right it. They must begin raising the next generation, at least, on humanist values, and foster a tolerant public discourse. Without these, the Jewish tribe will not be worthy of its own state. . .

The Devil's Alliance
July 10, 2014 Fanatical jihadists, Kurds in Northern Iraq, Tayyip Erdogan, the US and Israel, have retracted a truly diabolical alliance that seeks to dominate throughout the Middle East oilfields, with a terrible and bloody carnage of innocent victims mostly Christians. It's shocking revelations of Turkish inspection, Aydinlik, but the newspaper, Bügün, which expose all this unholy alliance of jihadis with the Kurds in Northern Iraq, with Erdogan, the US and Israel, that makes "blind eye" the unspeakable crimes of the fanatical Islamists.
And in principle, the famous leader of the jihadis, the Ebu Bekir Bagdat, as revealed in a report in the Turkish newspaper Bügün, July 8, were for four years in the US (2005-2009) and had received "special education" by "friends" of Americans.
Officially reported to have been detained at Camp Bukka, but according to another article of the Turkish inspection, Aydinlik, on 10 July, the same government representative of the US Government, Mr. Jen Psaki, admitted that the Ebu Bekir Bagdat was an agent of the CIA and had received "territories special education" in the US in the period of his stay there to perform a few years later the "pious" work of starting the civil war in Syria and now the 'pious' massacres in Iraq.
The "pious" work of the Head of jihadis was to cut the oilfields of northern Iraq from both legal and therefore filoirainiki Shiite government in Baghdad. Then with the excellent cooperation of the Kurds in northern Iraq, which in recent years have become associates of Turkey in the region, the oil is pumped illegally in Turkish Mediterranean ports and is then forwarded to the US and Israel. That is all bloody "players" in excellent cooperation!
But there seems great hypocrisy in this whole geopolitical "theater of the devil" that cost the lives of thousands of innocent victims, the role of the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan Taipei. After countless reports in the Turkish press that they revealed that Erdogan is the main sponsor and the main supporter of the jihadis in their countless crimes with the blessing of the US, is now revealing new report in the Turkish inspection, Aydinlik, that the deadly Israeli raids in the Gaza Strip, which Erdogan had viewed as the "great protector", one who supplies fuel Israeli bombers are just the . . . Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan Taipei. As revealed by the Turkish inspection, shipping transportation Mersin Turkey and Israel Haifa, operates continuously from 16 June supplying Israel with the necessary fuel and oil to conduct air strikes against the Palestinians.
The whole puzzle complement the supply of oil from themselves jihadists in USA and Israel via Turkey from oilfields in Syria and Iraq have fallen into their hands. This shows the real cause of all these horrific crimes and massacres by Islamic fanatics. As for the Kurds of northern Iraq, have become the best representatives of Israel in the region, which puts them in the same "bag".
This explains the constant conflicts with the Iranian army. Tehran has shown perceive the hypocritical game Kurds and therefore enhances constantly Baghdad understands why and how the next main target is Iran itself. This explains the strong reaction of Russia in the jihadis crimes against Christians in the Middle East and the US on this issue appear to . . . 'words to love each other. "Moscow is well aware of the hypocritical and dangerous game of all such unholy alliance and how deep in Russia itself looks like a big future goal.
Only we in Giounanistan sleep the "sleep of the just" so we ended up like Europeans, our other exterminators see us and do not say a word about the massacres of Christians in the area! Full story: agioritikovima.gr
7/7 Bombings, Big Questions never asked, let alone answered
July 11, 2014 Nine years ago this week, London saw four devastating bomb attacks which killed 56 people on three London Underground trains and a bus . . . Previous attacks in public places and on public transport across Europe such as the 1980 Bologna railway station bomb, which killed 85 people and the 1985 Brabant Supermarket massacres which killed 16, have been conclusively traced to NATO intelligence by parliamentary enquiries in Italy, Belgium and Switzerland.
If the spooks had planted the 7/7 London bombs, it would not be the first time the network of NATO & Swiss secret services known as the 'Club of Berne', have done so. Under the guise of national security, they live a publicly funded life far from democratic oversight, and have been proven to run secret armies, immune from prosecution, in structures that run parallel to the regular armed forces.
"You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game," stated NATO Operation Gladio soldier, Italian fascist Vincezo Vinciguerra. The objective, he explained from jail in a 1992 BBC Timewatch documentary, was "to force the people to turn to the state to ask for greater security." Back in the 1980s the fake enemy was the Soviet Union, today it's Islamic Extremists. Full story: rt.com
Will Detroit be the First Major Chinese City in the United States?
May 6, 2014 Is Detroit destined to become a Chinese city? Chinese homebuyers and Chinese businesses are starting to flood into the Motor City, and the governor of Michigan is greatly encouraging this. In fact, he has formally asked the Obama administration for 50,000 special federal immigration visas to encourage even more immigration from China and elsewhere. So will Detroit be the first major city in the United States to be dominated by China? It could happen. Once upon a time, Detroit was the greatest manufacturing city in the history of the world and it had the highest per capita income in the entire country. But now it is a rotting, decaying, bankrupt hellhole that is in desperate need of a savior, and Michigan Governor Rick Snyder appears to be fully convinced that China can be that savior. . .

The Spoken Word is mightier than the Sword
"When the chief priests and Pharisees heard Jesus' parables, they perceived that He spoke of them. But when they sought to lay hands on Him they feared the multitude because they took Him for a prophet. And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables, likening the kingdom of heaven to a certain king who made a wedding feast for his son, and sent forth his servants to call those who had been invited to the feast; and they were unwilling to come. Finally He said, the wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. Go therefore to the highways, and as many as you find there, invite to the marriage feast. So those servants went out into the streets, and gathered together all they found [of Adam's race], both bad and good: and the wedding hall was filled with guests. And when the king came to see the guests, he saw there a man not wearing a wedding garment" (Matthew 21:45 22:14).
Brother Branham said, "He wanted to hold to the old coat [worldly customs, church creeds and human reasoning]. And if you ever was in the Orient . . . the bridegroom has to furnish the robes . . . there's a man stands at the door, and you come up with your invitation; he examines your invitation and puts you on a garment . . . Some of them are rich; and some are poor; and some of them are different; but they all look alike when they get these robes on. They all look alike [(I Corinthians 12:13; Galatians 3:28; Ephesians 2:12-13)]. And you have to all be alike. You ain't going be say, "I'm the Methodist over here," "I'm the Presbyterian over here." Oh, no. You ain't going in the first place. See? You've got to come by the Door. Jesus said, "I am the Door to the sheepfold".
"I'm Pentecostal." "I'm this, I'm that." That don't mean one thing. You come by that Door. And if you come by that Door, you get the robe.
And this man, well He said, "How did you get in here, Friend?" See? It showed he come up some other way; and he come in a window, come in the back way, but not through the Door, not through the Door, the way that Jesus came, through self-sacrifice, giving your all to God, and walking to Calvary, and be crucified with Him, and rise again to wear His garment of sacrifice and death to the things of the world.
"If you love the world or the things of the world, the love of God's not even in you" (John 2:15). See? If you still have the love of the world, want to act like the world and do like the world . . . You're in the church, but a cocklebur in the patch with the wheat: shout with the rest of them; rejoice with the rest of them; all the spiritual blessings is right upon you. You say, "Well, I prophesy." So did Caiaphas; so did Balaam. That has nothing . . ."
"I got the baptism of the Holy Spirit." That still has nothing to do with it. That's just only a temporal gift for you [gifts of the Spirit anointing your mortal spirit without quickening the soul]. The real gift is your [elect] soul down in there (See?) that was borned of God, and that controls the whole thing to the Word of God and the will of God; and there [in your regenerated soul] you grow up [Ephesians 4:13-16]. See? Then you are a son and daughter of God. You are a child of God. And these things that you come up . . . Like the mother now, you're in the bowels of the earth trying to come forth . . . [Now, just as this baby is being born, then the spiritual body is there to receive it. And now, when this body is dropped [in death] here in this earth, like the baby's dropped, also there is a immortal [theophany] body waiting to receive the spirit back into itself again. Oh, what a great thing. We are now in Christ Jesus (Amen), babes in Christ, children of God, waiting for the full deliverance at the Coming of our Lord Jesus to receive us up unto Hisself, when the body, this mortal will take on immortality . . . You're a child in the earth, in the bowels of the earth still waiting to be born into the Kingdom of God, where He's gone to prepare another body for you that's a perfect body]. You're a son of God coming forth and you see the Word says, "I should do this; I should be borned again." "Well, I belong to a church." That don't mean one thing. See?
"I'm Methodist, my mother . . ." That's good for your mother.
"Well, my, I'm Pentecostal; I belong . . ." If you don't line with that Word, there's something wrong. See? Then you see, your real father ain't God (See?), because that real start in your soul [predestinated to election through the foreknowledge of God (II Peter 1:2)], before there even was a spirit, it was your soul. That soul didn't come from God, then it wasn't a germ of God [or attribute eternal in His mind] to begin. You're deceived. You're in a patch of weeds and bearing the world's record of the weeds, coming forth acting like the world, loving the world, is because the love of God's not in you [Matthew 13:36-43].
And now, there'll be false anointed ones in the last days, not false Jesus; they wouldn't stand for that, but false anointed. They are anointed. Yes, sir. But they are antichrist. They are anointed with the Spirit to do the signs and wonders that Christ did, but won't line up with His Word [Matthew 24:24]. See? "Many will come to Me that day and say, Lord, have not I prophesied and cast out devils in Your Name?" He'll say, "Depart from Me, you that work iniquity, I never even knew you."
"I was Pentecostal, Lord. Glory to God. I shouted; I spoke with tongues; I laid hands on the sick and healed them, cast out devils. "Depart from Me you that work iniquity, I never knew you." See what I mean?
Oh, little children, do you feel the need of that vitamin tonight, that something . . . There's a [W_O_R_D] body waiting yonder; there's a body waiting to be received. People, don't be deceived. Don't be deceived. The Devil is a deceiver. Even the wedding garment, you must wear it. It must be.
Now, we're at the evening time. The earthly body is now ready to be dissolved, and we're preparing to enter in into the heavenly [glorified body]. And we now feel the strange call of God to go to this great Eden. And before we could be born here, our little bodies cried for something that had to be provided or we'd be an afflicted child here if we wasn't. God has no afflictions up there. They're every one perfectly lined up, the Bride, just exactly like the Groom was: the Word manifested in its season. God grant tonight, children, each and every one of you. There is a heaven to go to; there's a hell to stay away from" (William Branham, Things that are to be, p. 34:108a-116, 52, 143).
Because "our election is according to God's foreknowledge, through sanctification by the Spirit unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ" (I Peter 1:2) we must be "all the more diligent to make certain of His calling and our election" by practicing the admonitions of II Peter 1:2-10. On this basis Jesus said, "You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in My Name, He may give it you" (John 15:16).
"Who has seen the spirit of the sons of man whether it goes upward, and the spirit of the beast, whether it goes downward to the earth?" (Ecclesiastes 3:21). We know that when a Christian dies his soul enters the Presence of God in the sixth dimension as it were under the Altar of Incense. The beast does not possess a soul and its mortal spirit "goes downward" even as its desires tend downward to mere temporal wants; thus we may "kill and eat" (Deuteronomy 12:15).
It is only "every animal of the field" that Jehovah brought to Adam to nameanimals in any way useful to man (Genesis 2:19-20)mainly the herbivores and fowls that had been ordained to his service have first place in the selection. Adam named the beasts following his intuitive knowledge of them; for speech is the thought outwardly realized and his dominion commenced with their naming. After the "Fall" Noah is said to take into the ark "of every living thing of all flesh"; but in Genesis 9:9-10, "beasts of the earth" are distinguished from "all that go out of the ark," and in Psalm 8:7 man's dominion is over "the beasts of the field." Next to fear of a deluge was their fear of the beasts of the earth; but God assures men "the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth" (Genesis 9:2). But in the millennium "The wolf and the lamb shall [once again] feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain, says the Lord" (Isaiah 65:24; 11:6-9).
Symbolically, man severed from God and resting on his own physical and intellectual strength, or material resources, is beastly and brutish. He is only manly when he is Godly, for man was made in the image of God. So Asaph describes himself, when envying the prosperous wicked, "I was as a beast before You" (Psalm 73:22). "Man in his pomp will not endure; he is like the beasts that perish" (Psalm 49:12).
The Jewish multitude opposing Jesus Messiah are so many "bulls" and "calves" to be stilled by His "rebuke" (Psalm 68:30). Those "that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, as natural brute beasts, are made only to be taken and destroyed" (II Peter 2:12), so the persecutors of Christians such as Paul's opponents at Ephesus (I Corinthians 15:32). The "beasts" symbolizing the four successive Gentile world empires of Daniel 7 12 and Revelation chapters 13 17, 19 and 20 are metaphorically (Gk.) 'therion'untameable wild animals, savage, venomous, and ferocious. These beasts rose up from around the Mediterranean Sea whereon the four winds of heaven strove [in warfare] (Daniel 7:2-3; Revelation 13:1-2). NATO's neo-Roman Empire, rising from the Mediterranean to the Caspian Sea in the coup of the Ukraine for the siege of Russia, combines within itself all of the sensual, lawless, God-opposing features of the previous three world empires supported by "another beast that came up out of the earth." This rogue United States of America rejected her last opportunity for national repentance in 1956/7, is judged and doomed (Revelation 13:1-2; Revelation 10:2).
Revelation 13:10, "He that leads into captivity will go into captivity: he that kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the [144,000 elect Israelite] saints." The United States is killing, leading the world to Judaeo-Roman captivity, and is herself captive of Rome as will be seen when the dollar is refinanced with Roman gold. After Rome breaks her covenant with the Jewish banksters in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week the USA will be marked for destruction by Judaeo-communist Russia, while retribution will befall Rome at the hands of "the kings of the earth [or Black Nobility] who have committed fornication with her" (Revelation 17:6; 18:8, 17-18, 20). Rome's abrogation of her covenant with the banksters of the City of London and the enforced worship of her trinity of gods as opposed to the Orthodox trinity of gods will set the Orthodox church of Russia and Jewry against Rome and the USA and recompense the betrayal of perfidious Albion and the United States (Daniel 9:27; 11:40-45).
The United States bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 with Vatican approval (Revelation 13:11-14), and from the close of the Gentile dispensation Rome will sanction and sponsor a worldwide ecumenical council wherein all organized churches must ally with Catholicism to spread Rome's influence and ultimately force her trinitarian religion on pain of death (Revelation 13:15-18). In contrast with the BEAST system, the Kingdom of Jesus Messiah will be that of "the Son of MAN," utterly supplanting the former, and alone everlasting and worldwide (Daniel 2:44). "The stone which was cut out of the mountain without hands" by the spoken Word of God is Christ and His Gentile Bride; "it will break in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold [of this world's kingdoms]; the great God made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation [documented by 2,616 years of history] is sure".
The diagram below illustrates that the capping of the pyramid of the Body of Christ completes Christ's Wife, Israel's Queen, thus ending the Gentile dispensation. Then God will return to Israel by deploying the two prophets of Zechariah 4 to reinstruct his servant nation in obedience unto faith via the revelation of their Seven Trumpet mysteries whereby their heart will crown Jesus Messiah (Revelation 15:1-4), and that Word Kingdom will smite the kingdoms of this world in its Papal Roman feet of iron mixed with clay (Daniel 2:35).
Nebuchadnezzar's dream and Daniel's prophecy were confirmed one hundred years later by Zechariah 3:8-10 and 14:6-7, "Pay heed, O Joshua the high priest, you, and your fellows seated before you: for they are omens of good things to come [showing that Joshua types "My servant the BRANCH" (Luke 2:41-52)]. See the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone I will engrave seven eyes [signifying the Spirit of the Lord that anointed the angels to the seven Church Ages in a sevenfold manner to quicken the saints of each Age (Revelation 5:6)], says the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of Israel in one day (Isaiah 10:3, 17; 61:2c; 65:8; Daniel 9:24; Zechariah 12:9 13:9). In that day, says the Lord of hosts, everyone will invite his neighbour to sit under his vine and under his fig tree [as new birth will herald the millennium] . . . Not by human might or power, but by grace and My Spirit, says the Lord of hosts mountain-like obstacles shall be removed as when the foundation was laid; thus the Capstone or Headstone will complete the Body of the Lord." The restoration of the Lord's Temple in Jerusalem after the Captivity types the building of His true Temple, which is the Body of the Lord, and the "reinstruction" of the millennium temple which will be Israel's baptism into Christ and the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel in the millennium.
Right now the churches are controlling politics and at the opportune time will manifest exactly how great is that control. This ecumenical move will end up with Rome at the head even though the people did not envision it that way. This is so because Revelation 17:3-6 states that "the whore" Mystery Babylon is seated on the beast. She is controlling the last or fourth empire. This Roman Church is doing that. With the world church system under her, Rome will be controlling, and her (once) Protestant image will be obedient to Rome because Rome controls the gold of the world.
We are living between the Sixth and the Seventh Vials of Revelation 16:13-16: "I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of demons, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon".
Jesus stated emphatically that in the end-time, which commenced when He broke the Seven Seals to awaken and call the sleeping virgins out from the world church system to meet the Bridegroom (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4; 5; Matthew 25:6), that "Rome is the habitation of demons, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird" (Revelation 18:2). These Frogs are unclean creatures that dwell in slime and look backward with impudent eyes to the First Nicaea Council where the Judaeo-Roman church organized in union with the Roman state. These three unclean spirits manifest in Fascism, Nazism and Communism.
The Dragon is the beast of Imperial Rome for the seven crowns are on the heads of the seven deified Roman Emperors: Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, and Galba. Imperial Rome "stood before the woman to devour her Child as soon as it was born" (Revelation 12:3-4). Even before His crucifixion Jesus warned His disciples to flee Jerusalem immediately they spy the dragon pennants of Rome's legions over the Mount of Olives (Matthew 24:15).
The beast of Imperial Rome began its transformation to the beast of Papal Rome in AD325 at the First Nicaea Council where the Judaeo-Roman Universal church organized (Revelation 13:1-3). In this stage of Satan's incarnation the crowns are upon the ten "horns" or kingdoms into which the Imperial Empire divided or ten economic/political regions into which it will be divided under one totalitarian world government, and the "blasphemous names" of Papal Rome's harlot daughter churches are upon the heads of the beast.
The false prophet (singular) is the first Pope who is later "the Beast" (Revelation 13:2-10; 17:1-11). Revelation 17:8-11, "The beast [of Imperial Rome (Revelation 12:3)] that you saw was, and is not [because one of its heads was as it were wounded to death (Revelation 13:3, 12, 14) when the Roman Empire under Emperor Constantine declined as a military power but revived when he united the church with the state and backed the union by force; it later divided but is to ascend out of the bottomless pit [as a Christianized Roman One World Government], and go into perdition [with the Devil-incarnate last pope (Revelation 6:8; II Thessalonians 2:3-12; Revelation 13:3; 17:8, 11)]: and all who dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, [when one pope dies] and is not, [but another pope succeeds him] and [he] yet is. And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits. And there are seven kings: five are fallen [Emperors Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, and Claudius], and one is [Nero] and the other [Galba], is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space [six months]. And the Beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth [the Devil-incarnate last pope], and is of the seven [because he has been deified (Revelation 13:3-8)], and goes into perdition" (Isaiah 14:15; Revelation 6:8).
The Bible is the story of God incarnating Himself into His Kingdom and Satan incarnating himself into his kingdom. Revelation 16:13 describes Satan's ride to perdition on the four horses of the Apocalypse under the first Four Seals of the spiritual redemption of Christ's Bride of all Ages. Riding his white horse under the First Seal from Pentecost to the First Nicaea Council ten years into the Pergamean Church Age he took spiritual power over Imperial Rome through the Judaeo-Roman Universal State church. A triple crown was given to him "with authority to take peace from the earth so that men would kill one another [through almost 1,000 years of the Thyatira Church Age "or Dark Ages"; mounting his red horse] he was given a great sword" (Revelation 6:4) and took political power. Then for the Sardis and Philadelphian Church Ages he changed to his black horse and assumed demon power. In the Laodicean Church Age (1906-1963) he mounted his sickly green-coloured horse which he will ride to perdition with his followers. He is now riding through the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the antitype of Israel's Pentecostal feast. Since Calvary Satan has worked behind Israel's enemy, Rome, the last Gentile world empire, to assume totalitarian power. When he is cast down to earth at the termination of the Gentile dispensation he will incarnate the pope as Rome's eighth deified head, then "all the non-elect upon earth will worship him as the Beast" thus separating themselves from God and following Satan as Death in person and name to Hell (Revelation 6:8; 13:8; 17:7-11; 22:19).
"In the age after the Church goes Home he becomes a beast. He becomes the Devil incarnate, the Red Dragon himself. Oh, my. Can't you see what I mean? He's incarnate in his people then. He's got his people bound by his power. The false prophet has prophesied them right into it, give them over to strong delusions to believe a lie and be damned by it, denying the Word with a form of godliness . . . And when Satan become incarnate into his church, if there be a Devil, then they are the ones that does the murdering and killing and so forth, because Satan is a killer in the first place, a liar and a thief" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 204:4; 205:4; II Thessalonians 2:11-12).
Revelation 17:8, "The beast that you saw was, and is not; and will ascend out of the bottomless pit (Revelation 20:3, 7), and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is."
Brother Branham said, Revelation 13 "shows the power of the Roman Catholic Church and what she will do through organization. Remember this is the false vine. Let it name the Name of the Lord, it does so only in a lie. Its headship is not of the Lord but of Satan. It finally ends up completely identified with the beast. The whore riding on the scarlet beast distinctly shows her power is the god of force (Satan) and not our God, the Lord Jesus Christ."
"Revelation 13:17 emphatically shows that she will gain absolute control of the commerce of the earth, for no man can buy or sell apart from her. This is borne out in Revelation 18:9-17 which shows her involvement with kings, princes, merchants, all of whom have to do with Rome and commerce."
"In Revelation 13:14, we learn that the Beast spreads his influence through the image which was built for him. The image that is made is a world-wide ecumenical council, wherein all the organized churches will get together with the Roman Catholics (they are doing it even now). It is quite possible this union will come in order to stop the power of communism. But since communism like Nebuchadnezzar has been raised up to burn the flesh of the harlot, Rome will be overcome and destroyed. Take note that everywhere the Romish church went, communism followed. It has to be that way. And let me warn you now, don't get thinking communism is your only enemy. No sir. It is the Catholic Church also, and even more so" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 236:1-3; Revelation 17:16; 18:17-18).
"Now don't be confused and start thinking that the Church of Rome has repented of her slaughter of the saints because she is attempting to unite with the Protestants by making her creeds to line up with Protestant Creeds. Not once has she ever apologized and said she was wrong for her mass murders. And she won't either. And no matter how mellow and sweet she appears at this particular time, she will yet rise up to kill, for murder lies in her evil and unrepentant heart" (ibid. p. 232.1).
"Yes, this age [in which we live] boasts of its tremendous stores of worldly goods, but the people are less happy than ever. This age boasts of its spiritual attainments, but the people are less sure of themselves than ever. This age boasts of better moral values and it is more corrupt than any age since the Flood. It talks about its knowledge and science, but it is fighting a losing battle in all fields, for the human mind and soul and spirit cannot comprehend or keep abreast with all the changes that have come upon the earth. In one generation we have gone all the way from the horse and buggy age to the space age, and we are proud and boastful about it; but inside is a dark void cavern that is crying out in torment, and WITHOUT A KNOWN REASON men's hearts are failing for fear and the world is so darkened that this age could well be called the age of neurotics. It boasts, but it cannot back it up. It cries peace, and there is no peace. It cries that it has a great amplitude of all things, but it keeps burning with desire like an unsatisfied fire! "There is no peace," saith my God to the wicked" (ibid. p. 346; Jeremiah 6:14; 8:11; Matthew 24:37; Revelation 3:17-20).
When the Catholic church abrogates her covenant with the Black Nobility and the Jewish banksters of the City of London Revelation 17:16 states: "the ten horns which you saw and the Beast, these shall hate the whore [or harlot church of Rome], and shall make her desolate [terminating their alliance by allying Communist Russia (Revelation 17:3)] and naked [of her gaud (Revelation 17:4)], and shall eat her flesh and burn her with [nuclear fire (Revelation 18:8-20)]" as Brother Branham, the angel with the Seventh Vial in Revelation 17:1 has shown us. As Jerusalem used the world power to crucify her Saviour, and then was destroyed by that very power, Rome; so the church, having apostatized to the world, shall have judgment executed on her first by the Black Nobility and Jewish banksters of the City of London allied with Judaeo-communist Russia; and second by the Word of God. "The Beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast [trinitarian worship], and those [so-called Protestants] who worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into the Lake of Fire burning with brimstone" (Revelation 19:20).
This is condemnation to "the lake of Fire," having fallen under the judgment of Gehenna while still on earth (Revelation 14:9-11; 18:1-24). "There is no record of TWO judgments set where the wicked are cast into the Lake of Fire. Only the beast and false prophet are judged at the end of the great tribulation" (ibid. p. 278:3). "She is so foul and wicked and lewd that she is summarily cast into the Lake of Fire as the only fit place for her" (ibid. 215:2). "The Lake of Fire" is not natural fire alone but the Holy Fire of God's Spirit which in His predetermined season will annihilate evil and also time by a slow living death where "their worm dies not and their fire is not quenched." Thus the beast and the false prophet will not lose their physical being when "cast alive [bodily] into the Lake of Fire" in Revelation 19:20 as will "the remnant" of verse 21 and all who perish in the nuclear consummation before the millennium and general resurrection. After the White Throne Judgment "the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars will have their part in the Lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." Brother Branham explains, "The true interpretation of the word is not "part" but it is time" (ibid. p. 135:3; Revelation 21:8).
Revelation 19:20 and 20:10, like the metaphor of Revelation 6:5-11 wherein the Fifth Seal Israelites under the blood of the sacrifice altar are said to be "given white robes," shows Christ's end-time Bride that these will be acquitted and granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment; whereas the beast and the false prophet will be judged after the tribulation and condemned to be "cast alive into the Lake of Fire." They will not lose their physical beings, neither will they partake the general resurrection or stand before the Great White Throne but like Achan and his people they will be separated from other deceased non-elect until after the White Throne Judgment when ALL the lost and Satan enter Gehenna.
Revelation 20:7-12 describes the general resurrection (John 5:29) where all souls will be reunited with their bodies so that the lost may experience the torment of Gehenna in the bodies in which they sinned (Revelation 20:14-15; Mark 9:48; COD p. 701:Q170) and that the bodies of the "saved" non-elect may be glorified.
Speaking of Armageddon in Revelation 19:11-14 Brother Branham said: "Notice, Life followed the rider on the white horse who was the Word, Life, vindicated by His resurrected saints that He had with Him. Now, how's the battle going to go? Jesus said, "He that believeth in Me though he were dead, yet shall he live." He said, "If you believe in Me though you were dead yet shall you live, and whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die." Again He said, "He that believes in Me. . ." He will give him Eternal Life, rise him up at the last day. That's His promised Scripture.
Here comes Satan with all four corners of the earth with his Protestants and with his Catholics, and all together, marching right up to the battle of Armageddon. All right. And here comes Jesus coming down from heaven with resurrected saints, vindicated Word.
As I said, "If God speaks and sends you, He backs up what you say." See, see? Notice, if you're an ambassador from heaven, all heaven's behind you. And heaven is consisted of the Word.
Notice now, He's come with resurrected saints, vindicating that His Word is true. So Satan knows then the bottomless pits is ready for him. See? Oh, my. While death rode the pale horse, mixed creed and denominations followed him . . . Oh, my, the eternal separation from God, that's where he rode them to, eternal separation. Christ rode His Church right into glory in the resurrection.
Notice [Revelation 6:8 . . . "And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.] And power was given unto them [over the fourth or worldly part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth, four.]" Who is them? See? All right. Antichrist called Death; hell followed. Watch his four point scheme:
Antichrist, white horse, kills by spirit, being antichrist, spiritual kill.
Number two: Red horse: kills by sword, political power when church and state united [at Nicaea].
Black horse: souls when he give out his doctrine, and she did there with her fornications, and he weighed out the food by . . . Sold their . . . What they'd give for food for balance and the pennies and so forth. [Indulgences, novenas, penance, masses for the dead, etc].
Fourth, a pale horse: eternal separation from God (again four . . . See?). Oh, my. Praise be to God.
. . . Now, here in closing, to those who don't believe that the last messenger to the Church Age is Elijah, the prophet, a man anointed in that line . . . Watch. After death of this last Church Age . . . Now, you notice what happens. See? After death, their dead bodies are destroyed by wild beasts. You know that. Now, that's true [Revelation 19:17-18]. Like theirs had the type of Jezebel [I Kings 21:17-24; 22:38; II Kings 9:1-37].
Now, turn to Revelations 2:18 and 20. I believe we had this just a few minutes ago, didn't we? Yeah, I believe we just got that. I had it wrote down here for some. . . Yes, the time of moral decay. That's what it was. See it how it was . . . how Jezebel had come in . . . Now, Jezebel is the churches [world church system], this modern church, not Bride now. Jezebel in the Old Testament is a type of the church today, according to the Word of God of Revelations 2:18-20. "Thou sufferest that woman, Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess . . ." See? Is that right? Now, it's typed perfectly to Jezebel.
Now, the first . . . We could just give you Scripture after Scripture (See?), that the last age is a prophetic Message to the church, calling them back to the original Word. Now, notice. Is that right? Malachi 4 said so, and others, Revelations 10:7 and on down. See? Jesus Himself predicted it down, down, down; "as it was in the days of Lot" and so forth like that and on down. It just keeps coming on down.
Jezebel is the type of the modern church today, 'cause Catholic and Protestants are joined together now. Right. There is no getting around it. They're both denominations, so it's just mother and sister. That's all. They fuss and argue with one another, but it's the same thing, both harlots. Now, I'm not saying that myself. I'm quoting from THUS SAITH THE LORD. All right.
Now, we notice, killed by a command of God Jezebel was killed because God had Jehu to go down there and have her throwed out of the window and kill Jezebel, and the dogs eat her flesh. (Is that right?) literal Jezebel. Ahab, her king head: dogs licked his blood as the first Elijah predicted.
See where we're going, don't you? Why? The first Elijah was a rejected man by the churches. And Jezebel and Ahab was the head of them churches: church and state, it's all together. And Elijah revealed Ahab's sins to him and commanded the whole church to turn back to the true Word.
If that isn't exactly what the second Elijah is supposed to do when he comes to this church in this day: restore back the original faith. I don't see how you're going to squeeze away from it. That's right. Turn back to the true Word. That's right.
Now, if you want to see their bodies, let's turn over here to Revelations 19 after the Word slays them. Now, the Word's going to kill them [i.e. the remnant or false church of Daniel 7:11 and Revelation 19:21]. You know that. All right now, you just watch and see what happens when Christ coming in Revelations 19, beginning with the 17th verse . . .
Now, that's right after . . . Look above here. "And His vesture was dipped with blood, and He's called King of king and Lord of lords." (In the 13th verse, He's called the Word of God. See? Now, here He is King of kings and Lord of lords.)
"And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: . . . (Out of His mouth, like from God's mouth to Moses' mouth. See?) . . . and He shall rule them with a rod of iron [at the White Throne Judgment]: and . . . tread the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God. And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KING, and LORD of LORDS. And I saw an angel . . . (Now, watch, now He comes forth smiting. Who's He smiting? Jezebel and her Ahab, false prophet.)
"And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls of the air in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together to the supper of the great God;"
He feeds them to the beasts and birds. Now, watch over here in the other chapter here of the Book of Revelations. And . . . (Just a minute.) "Kill with the sword and death and beasts of the earth." See? The Jezebel church, her actually body, is to be eaten by fowls and beasts of the earth. Just exactly like Ahab and Jezebel was in the natural, so are they to be in the spiritual form a church. Do you see what I mean? All right.
[Notice, it is the remnant or false church that is killed (Daniel 11:7; Revelation 19:21), not the beast and the false prophet: "these both are cast alive into the lake of Fire" (Revelation 19:20)].
Elijah (Oh.), Elijah was the prophet in the days of Ahab and Jezebel, natural. And He's promised to do the same thing according to THUS SAITH THE LORD, in the Word to the Jezebel, spiritual: His Spirit form of ministry.
Watch. Elijah, though in his day properly and profoundly vindicated, could not turn them back to the Word. Is that right? Though Elijah tried with everything; he did everything; he showed them signs and wonders; and they laughed in his face. Same thing they'll do with this spiritual. See? He could not turn them back to the Word. [A type of Brother Branham's ministry].
Out of the millions . . . Now, listen, Church, close now you that is going to be confused on this. Out of the millions in the world in the days of Elijah, when Jezebel and Ahab was reigning in type of the antetype todayout of the whole world, there was only seven
hundredthousand saved of Elijah's preaching [I Kings 19:19; Romans 11:4]. Is that right? It's exactly.
Look, Elijah never knew even one of them was that way. He thought he was the only one saved until God opened one of the Seals and showed him the mystery of the Book, that He had seven
hundredthousand that never bowed down to them creeds that they had. When God opened His Book to Elijah, He said, "Now, wait a minute, son; I got seven hundredthousand that's tucked around out there: got their names on the Book since the foundation of the world. They're Mine." Whew.
God opened the Seals. That's the reason I think John [who represents you, Christ's end-time Bride, throughout the Book of Revelation] was doing all that shouting the other night. He must've seen his name on there. You see, see? . . ." (An Exposition of the Seven Seals, p. 324:7 328:5).
Brother Branham identifies the remnant of Revelation 19:21 with Papal Rome, "her," the church or world church system as per Revelation 2:19-23 and 17:5 (ibid. p. 227-236:3) who's names have been removed from the Book of Life because those whose names remain in the Book are martyred before this time. "And the daughter churches follow right along, both of them are cast into hell" (Seals, 291:5; 312:2 317:3; Daniel 7:11; Revelation 2:21-23; 19:21). Brother Branham said Nicolaitanism that started in the Ephesian Church Age, "will get worse and worse, until the Holy Spirit is completely rejected and God must destroy the people" (ibid. p. 93; 238:5; Revelation 2:21-23; 19:21). Rome established a clerical hierarchy ruled by a president or pope, and her daughters, having replaced faith with reasoning are returning to the mother church and papal preeminence. Tracing the four stages of Satan's incarnation into his kingdom the Prophet said, "And so on and on went that spirit and one day it will become truly incarnate in a man who will head up the World Council of Churches just as we have been saying. And by his gold (remember Judas held the bag) he will control the whole world, and that antichrist system will own everything and try to control everybody. But Jesus will come back and destroy them all with the brightness of His coming. And their end will be the Lake of Fire" (ibid. p. 379).
When Satan is cast down to earth after the close of the Gentile dispensation and "becomes incarnate into a man, that man changes from one thing to another, from an antichrist spirit to a false prophet, and then the beast comes into him . . . "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up . . . (Now, here's [chapter] twelve, where he was kicked out. Now, watch.) . . . saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy".
"And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet . . . (Oh, if we just had time now, we'd take the rest of the night right on them symbols there and show, bring it right straight to him again. Any . . . Most all of you know that from other lessons.) . . . were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth . . . the mouth of a lion: and the dragon give him his power, . . . seat, and . . . authority." (Incarnate Satan. See?) . . . "And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast." (You just watch. Don't you never watch Communism. It's nothing but a tool playing in the hands of God to help you someday to get . . . revenge the blood [Revelation 6:10], as we'll get tomorrow night).
"And they worshipped the Dragon . . . (Who was the Dragon? Satan. That right? The Red Dragon . . . All right.) . . . which gave power unto the beast: . . . (where he gets his power. See?) . . . "and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?"
"And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given to him to continue forty and two months." [The first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week].
"And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, . . . (There you are) . . . to blaspheme His Name, . . . (give him a title) . . . and His tabernacle . . . (which is the Holy Spirit's dwelling place, to make it a place in Rome, a Vatican city; you can just go on down) . . . and them that dwell in heaven. (blasphemed them by saying they were intercessors). . ."
". . . We find out that he gets killed with the sword, toothe sword of God's Word . . . "He's a false prophet now. He will become Beast after a while when he breaks his covenant there with the Jews . . . he will be given a heart of a beast at that time, and Satan will incarnate himself when the Church goes up, Satan is cast out. See? It's done then, all of his accusing is done" (Seals 302:4 305:2).
I Peter 4:17, "judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that disobey the Gospel of God?" Judaeo-Communism was raised to destroy the Judaeo-Roman false church: after Rome breaks her covenant with the Jewish banksters and forces "the mark of the beast" she will be deposed as global hegemon, and Russiaforced back under Judaeo-Communismwill execute God's vengeance in Armageddon (Daniel 7:9-13; Revelation 19:11-21). Rome and her (once) Protestant United States image will be burned as revealed to God's Prophet in the last of seven continuous visions in 1933 (Daniel 2:43-42; Revelation 17:16; 18:17-19).
History is not happenstance but the outworking of long term stratagem of the 'hidden hand' behind every nation. In 1950 former Soviet delegate Dmitri Manuilsky pronounced the democratization of the USSR in the UN as "the most spectacular peace movement on record," the object of which was to be to "put the bourgeoisie to sleep," so that the final takeover of the world by the communists would succeed through the element of surprise".
Unbeknownst to citizens of the "free" world the 'surprise' was that our democratically elected politicians of all persuasions would socialize or communize our non-communist nations in the same manner by which Satan has incarnate himself into the apostate churches whilst nominal Christians "slumbered and slept" (Matthew 25:5).
This "peace offensive" was launched in 1956 by Premier Khrushchev at the Twentieth Party Congress that inaugurated the strategy of "peaceful existence" as the means of achieving world-wide Communist dictatorshipan objective which clearly could not have been gained by a conventional military confrontation. This is Fabian Socialism or gradualism deployed by the UN and our treacherous political representatives. Premier Mikhail Gorbachev's policies of glasnost ("openness") and perestroika ("restructuring") as well as summit conferences with US President Ronald Reagan and his reorientation of Soviet strategic aims contributed to the end of the Cold War, removed the constitutional role of the Communist Party in governing the state, led to democracy, and inadvertently to the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
As I speak we are witnessing the enemy of God and man who controls bothUS/NATO and Communismmaneuvering Russia into a situation whereby the Khazars will once again force Judaeo-Communism upon that hapless people who have been betrayed by the apostate United States, Britain, Australia, and other colonies of the Jews' City of London.
Rome and her harlot daughters will receive the irrevocable "mark of the beast" and "worship his image" bringing them to the place of no more repentance for the second death (Revelation 2:19-23; 17:5; 13:15-18; 18:17-18; ibid. p. 227).
A decisive act of judgment takes the place of the battle contemplated by the Beast and "the kings of the earth" when the two misleaders of the infatuated Antichristian host, the Beast and the false prophet, are seized and cast alive into the Lake of Fire. This is established in Daniel 7:9-14, "I beheld till the thrones [or four Gentile world kingdoms] were cast down [for the Kingdom to be restored to Israel in the millennium], and [Messiah Jesus] the Ancient of days sits [wigged as judge]; the hair of His head is like pure wool, His garment is white as snow [and He is girt about the paps (Revelation 1:12-18; 19:12-15)], His throne is like the fiery flame [of the Shekinah], and its wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him: thousand thousands [His many-membered Wife] minister to Him, and ten thousand times ten thousand are before him [to be judged]: judgment is set, and the books are opened".
The general resurrection and White Throne Judgment will follow the millennium with the great separation of the just from the wicked. Revelation 20:7-10 (Daniel 7:9-12; Matthew 25:31-46), "When the thousand years have expired, Satan will be loosed out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and marched against the camp meeting of the saints gathered together with our loved ones about the beloved City: and Fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the Devil that deceived them was cast into the Lake of Fire and brimstone, where the Beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever".
Revelation 20:11-15, "And I saw a Great White Throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the ["rest of" the] dead, great and small, [who did not share in the first resurrection] stand before God; and the books [of works] were opened: and another Book was opened, which is the Book of Life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works" (Revelation 20:5; 12).
We are justified by faith, but judged according to (not by) our works which are faith expressed. For the general judgment is primarily designed for the final vindication of God's righteousness before the whole world, which in this variegated dispensation of good and evil, though really ruling the world, has been for the time less manifest. Faith is appreciable by God and the elect alone (Revelation 2:17). But works are appreciable by all. These, then, are made the evidential basis upon which to decide the eternal state of the non-elect, in particular those who have never heard the Gospel let along "the present Truth," thus showing that God's administration of judgment is altogether righteous especially as the righteous and unrighteous non-elect will be judged by Jesus Christ and the saints of the Old and New Testaments, who also are men.
Matthew 25:31-46 describes what takes place at the White Throne Judgment when "All" the ones who missed the first resurrection will stand before the Judge and His Bride" (ibid. 312:2). There will be a separation of the condemned whose names were never in the Book of Life and those whose names have been removed from the Book of Life and a sort of Bema or award judgment for the non-elect granted into eternal Life. John 3:18, "He who believes on Him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already [judged now], because he has not believed in the Name of the only begotten Son of God" (Jude 4).
Matthew 13:30, 39-42, "Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into My barn . . . The enemy that sowed them is the Devil; the harvest is the end of the Gentile dispensation; and the reapers are the angels. ["Once the tares are bound the rapture can take place and does so at some time between the binding and the revelation of antichrist" (ibid. p. 285:1)]. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this Gentile dispensation. The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of Fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth".
Christ's reign as mediator and judge was to prepare the Kingdom for acceptance: "The last enemy that shall be destroyed will be death . . . and when all things are subdued then shall the Son also Himself be subject . . . so that the Spirit may be everything to everyone" (I Corinthians 15:26, 28). The first heaven and first earth will be renewed, and there will be no more sea (COD. p. 1011: 77, 234-235; 1112:Q360; ibid. p. 274:2 286:3; Future Home, p. 16:110).
We commenced by quoting Brother Branham: "The real gift is your [elect] soul down in there (See?) that was borned of God, and that controls the whole thing to the Word of God and the will of God; and there [in your regenerated soul] you grow up [Ephesians 4:13-16]. See? Then you are a son and daughter of God. You are a child of God . . . You're a child in the earth, in the bowels of the earth still waiting to be born into the Kingdom of God, where He's gone to prepare another body for you that's a perfect body]".
Christ's end-time Bride will not see death as her new birth and glorification answer to her oneness with God's spoken Word (Malachi 4:5-6; Ephesians 4:13; Revelation 10:7-11). When we take the Lord's Supper we signify our unity in the faith as epistles of the spoken Word of the unwritten Seventh Seal which is the mystery of the voices of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10 that revealed the written Six Seals.
God's Word is His Spirit in a form we can receive by faith: mightier than the sword, it can impart eternal Life or DEATH because words project spirits (Revelation 9:17-19 and 12:4). Following his intuitive knowledge through observation Adam named the beasts; for speech is the thought outwardly realized and his dominion commenced with their naming as you established relationship with your animals by your words. Jesus Himself said, "My sheep receive My Word; a stranger they will not follow" . . . "And when the chief priests and Pharisees heard Jesus' parables, they perceived that He spoke of them." Thus we see the power of the mind of God and even man when expressed through the spoken Word. "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear" (Hebrews 11:3). nl845.htm
