Bible Believers' Newsletter 877
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it's good to see you.
The virgins of Matthew 25:6 all heard Brother Branham's midnight cry: "Behold the Bridegroom! Come out to meet Him" (I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4)! All forsook Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches, recognized him as God's vindicated prophet and believed His Message (Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:7). But most of the virgins suffered Eve's delusion believing God loves end-time Message believers so dearly, He won't "surely" consign them to martyrdom. He will, as the foolish virgins are slothful and dilatory. "And the foolish said to the wise, give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, No, lest there be not enough for us and you: but go to them that sell [VOG Recordings] and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the Bridegroom came. That was fifty-two years ago and still they are "buying the letter without the Spirit." Soon "they that are ready will go in with Him to the marriage supper, and the Door will be shut".
May I emphasize the importance of observing the example of "those noble Bereans who received the word of ministry with all readiness of mind, then searched the Scripture daily, whether those things were so" (Acts 17:11). I sometimes read a back issue of the Newsletter and find unreported spelling mistakes or grammatical errors. No one noticed a correction to a misplaced Scripture in the editorial of Newsletter 876 the Lord revealed the previous Sunday. For three years I had asked Him to provide me further Scriptural support or correction concerning Zechariah 14:3-5. I had placed this earthquake at the dispensation change, but as the editorial revealed it will occur in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. Our main article this week, "Zechariah Chapter Twelve," will be fulfilled after the siege of Jerusalem and earthquake of Zechariah 14.
'Projection' is a defense mechanism that involves ascribing one's own unacceptable qualities or feelings to other people." It is commonly found in neurotic or psychotic personalities functioning at a primitive level as in narcissistic personality disorder or borderline personality disorder and who when confronted with truth and evidentiary facts imprecate threats, insults and ridicule to bring the minister of truth under submission. This technique of mind manipulation is employed universally by the enemy of innocent Islam, God and man to bring individuals and nations into submission or "dhimmitude." When you read this article you will recognize "we are all dhimmis now" . . . but not to Muslim law.

West admits Inability to withstand Russian Military Power
February 22, 2015 The German magazine "Focus" analyzed the statements of a number of EU and US officials most of whom acknowledged that their countries would not be able to withstand Russian military forces.
The first EU official who "shocked his country" with his statement about the strong military advantage of Russian forces was former head of Great Britain's Royal Air Force Michael Graydon. Graydon announced that British defense forces had been 'decimated' and that the country would be unlikely to stand up to Russia in case of a military conflict . . . Swedish General Sverker Göranson acknowledged that his country's military forces are "in a very poor condition." He added that they have never been able to stand up against the "Soviet Union or Russia" without military support from other countries.
NATO Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, Philip Breedlove, also raised questions about the ability of the alliance to "appropriately respond" to potential large-scale military threats. He questioned NATO's flexibility and ability to quickly respond to emerging threats, highlighting his lack of confidence in NATO's efficiency . . . Chief Former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen also doubted Europe's capabilities to withstand Russia . . . US General Ben Hodges told the Wall Street Journal earlier this month that Russia possesses high-level military equipment and is further strengthening its capacity, while military capabilities of western countries have fallen considerably behind.

Comment: Three fronts for Russia: Washington will fan the flames of chaos in Central Asia. But the belligerent USA can never win another war and will be defeated and briefly occupied in the 'hot stage' of the present World War III it is forcing upon Russia, Iran, Syria, and humanity in service to the Money Power of her master, the City of London. Imagine how weak the United States and her vassals will be after Los Angeles sinks.
IMF to Ukraine: Deadly 'Economic Medicine' aimed at Total Destabilization
February 17, 2015 Looking at Ukraine as a part of the present geopolitical struggle, one can see that the IMF's new loans to Ukraine, announced by Christine Lagarde, [Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund], are anything but a 'turning point' signaling the country's stabilization. They will lead to unspeakable human suffering and contribute to the trail of blood which Ms Lagarde and the IMF are so used to leaving behind after intervening under the pretext of 'helping' countries in times of trouble . . .
In pursuing this strategy, the IMF is totally in line with the geopolitical policies pursued by Wall Street and the government in Washington. Both are in deep trouble, with the US torn apart by ever-increasing social inequality threatening to explode in massive social unrest, while its rulers are drowning in debt and losing control over the world financial system. Having dominated global markets for seven decades, the United States' economic decline and a shift in global power are ringing in the end of the US dollar as the world's reserve currency and thereby heralding the end of the US's status as the world's super power.
In a reckless attempt to stop this unstoppable process, Wall Street and the White House are waging an extremely aggressive campaign against Russia and China who have dared to complete an energy deal outside the petro-dollar and whom the US fear to be preparing a new, possibly gold-backed, currency that might replace the US dollar as the world's reserve currency. To prevent this from happening and to gain control of the vast natural riches of Russia which promise enormous profits, Wall Street and the White House are pursuing a strategy of regime change in Moscow, undertaking everything possible to replace the Russian government by one that is as subservient to US interests as that of Ukrainian premier Yatseniuk and his investment banker cronies in Kiev. One of the means to this end is the integration of Ukraine into NATO in order to step up the military threat against Russia. However, as the EUand Germany in particulardo not seem to be willing to join forces in an all-out war against Russia (not out of humanitarian considerations, but because of their dependency on Russian gas and oil and their anticipation of a new monetary world order no longer dominated by the US) and as the majority of Americans, despite a massive media campaign demonizing Vladimir Putin, are unwilling to support a war that would cost more money and more lives than any war in the past and could end up in a nuclear catastrophe, the US government's and the IMF's main purpose in Ukraine is to deepen and widen the already existing economic, social and ethnic conflicts . . . to force Vladimir Putin into a long-lasting and costly war that will weaken his position at home and eventually pave the way for the installation of new rulers . . .

Obama's Fake War ISIS is protected by the US and its Allies
February 19, 2015 Since August 2014, the US Air Force with the support of a coalition of 19 countries has relentlessly waged an intensified air campaign against Syria and Iraq allegedly targeting the Islamic State brigades. According to Defense News, over 16,000 airstrikes were carried out from August 2014 to mid January 2015. Sixty percent of the air strikes were conducted by the US Air Force using advanced jet fighter and bombing capabilities (Aaron Mehta, "A-10 Performing 11 Percent of Anti-ISIS Sorties". Defense News, January 19, 2015).
The airstrikes have been casually described by the media as part of a "soft" counter-terrorism operation, rather than an act of all out war directed against Syria and Iraq . . . Americans are led to believe that the Islamic State constitutes a formidable force confronting the US military and threatening Western Civilization . . . From the very outset, this air campaign has NOT been directed against ISIS. The evidence confirms that the Islamic State is not the target. Quite the opposite. The air raids are intended to destroy the economic infrastructure of Iraq and Syria . . .
The counter-terrorism mandate is a fiction. America is the Number One 'State Sponsor of Terrorism.' The Islamic State is not only protected by the US and its allies, it is trained and financed by US-NATO, with the support of Israel and Washington's Persian Gulf allies. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: In his address to Hezbollah on February 16, 2015 Secretary General Nasrallah said:
The [ISIS] threat was in Syria. Now it is in Syria and Iraq. It also reached Libya. Also in Sinaa they say that Ansar Beit Al Maqdes has pledged allegiance to Daesh or something of this sort. Similar things are taking place in other places too. Today in Tunisia, there is a state of full mobilization. In Yemen, a branch of al-Qaeda had pledged allegiance to the Daesh Caliph and is proceeding and occupying camps in southern provinces in the country.
. . . They are slaughtering and killing . . . They are producing true films. It is absolutely sure that their mind, spirit, and brutality come from Hollywood. This is the culture of Hollywood . . . [from non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jewry]. Is there anything other than killing and slaughtering? Is this from here, from the Orient, from Islam, from Christianity, from prophets . . . God forbids. It is not from any of these.
The origin of what we are seeing now before our eyes on TV screens is clear. In face of this danger which is threatening everyone, we call on the peoples and the governments of the region to join efforts to confront this vast, dangerous, terrorist Takfiri threat [of apostate Muslims who excommunicate other Muslims whom they accuse as apostates by violence under the guise of jihad or holy war as though God is impotent and unable to manage His affairs]. I reiterate that we are all able to defeat this threat as well as to defeat those standing behind it whether the "Israeli" Mossad, the Americans or the English . . . Thus the nation, the peoples of the nation, the governments, the scholars, the political parties, the resisting forces, and the armies are all concerned in confronting this threat which is the most dangerous threat except for the "Israeli" threat . . . Through Daesh alone, America [like once Jew-ruled Russia] is robbing our oil and our wealth . . . America is exhausting us as well as our armies, peoples, states, and nerves. Through Daesh, [Jew-ruled] America is planting grudges and enmities which might not end in decades. It is ruining the entire region for its interest and for the interest of keeping "Israel" powerful, prominent, and protected.
Why is America in a hurry? In best cases, if America finds out that it wants to get rid of Daesh, it can still do that slowly and later on when the American presidential elections approach. So why should it get rid of Daesh now? When the American presidential elections are due, they would make several moves and hit Daesh so that the Democratic Party wins. So the knife of Daesh must remain on our neckwe the Iraqis, the Syrians, the Lebanese whom Daesh is at their borders in Qalamoun, Irsal barren mountains, the Egyptians, the Libyans, the Tunisians, the Yemenis, and all the peoples of the regionuntil the American presidential elections approach to know whether the Americans want to make any move in this perspective.

Iraqi Army downs Two UK Planes carrying Weapons for ISIL
February 23, 2015 ". . . both planes that are British and have crashed while they were carrying weapons for the ISIL," Head of the committee Hakem al-Zameli said, . . . US-led coalition planes that airdrop weapons and supplies for ISIL in terrorist-held areas . . . the US prefers a chaotic situation in Anbar Province which is near the cities of Karbala and Baghdad as it does not want the ISIL crisis to come to an end . . .
"We have discovered weapons made in the US, European countries and Israel from the areas liberated from ISIL's control in Al-Baqdadi region," . . . anti-ISIL coalition's planes have dropped weapons and foodstuff for the ISIL in Salahuddin, Al-Anbar and Diyala provinces . . . the coalition is the main cause of ISIL's survival in Iraq . . . they have the technological power to determine the presence of ISIL gunmen and destroy them in one month" . . . the coalition's precise airstrikes are launched only in those areas where the Kurdish Pishmarga forces are present, while military strikes in other regions are not so much precise . . .
"The US and the so-called anti-ISIL coalition claim that they have launched a campaign against this terrorist and criminal groupwhile supplying them with weapons, food and medicine in Jalawla region (a town in Diyala Governorate, Iraq). This explicitly displays the falsity of the coalition's and the US' claims," Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri . . . insisted that the US had the necessary intelligence about ISIL's deployment in the region and that their claims to have mistakenly airdropped weapons to them are as unlikely as they are untrue.

Iraqi Forces seize US-made Weapons from ISIL in Anbar Province
February 23, 2015 A senior Iraqi provincial official lashed out at the western countries and their regional allies for supporting Takfiri terrorists in Iraq, revealing that US and Israeli-made weapons have been discovered from the areas purged of ISIL terrorists . . . US planes have dropped advanced weaponry, including anti-aircraft weapons, for the ISIL, and that it has set up an investigation committee to probe into the matter . . .
"The international coalition is not serious about air strikes on ISIL terrorists and is even seeking to take out the popular (voluntary) forces from the battlefield against the Takfiris so that the problem with ISIL remains unsolved . . . ISIL terrorists are still receiving aids from unidentified fighter jets in Iraq and Syria," . . . the coalition's precise airstrikes are launched only in those areas where the Kurdish Pishmarga forces are present, while military strikes in other regions are not so much precise . . .

Iranian Major General: ISIL created to reinforce Zionists
February 23. 2015 Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces for Logistics Major General Mostafa Izadi underlined that the Takfiri terrorist groups have been created as a result of a plot to strengthen Israel's operational power. "The moves by the ISIL to strengthen the Zionist regime show the nature of the Takfiri current" . . . He reiterated that the main goal of the ISIL and the Takfiri current is to taint the image of genuine Islam to prevent its progress in the heart of the Europeans.
Earlier today, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi said that the US, Britain and Israel have created and supported the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group to wage a war against the Muslim states. "The phenomenon of the ISIL is a terroristic move that has been created against our neighbors in Iraq, Syria and other Muslim countries by Zionism, Britain and the US . . . He noted that the arrogant powers are using the ISIL because of its extremely violent behavior to achieve their goals.
Last month, Lieutenant Commander of the IRGC Quds Force Brigadier General Esmayeel Qaani underlined Tehran's continued logistical support and military advice to Baghdad and Damascus in their campaign against terrorist groups. "This (Quds force's assistance) is not a military presence (in Iraq or Syria), but it is military counseling that has persuaded resistance forces in Iraq and Syria to be determined in their fights against extremists and terrorists," the Iranian commander said.

The Malhama (Armageddon) Draws Closer
September 16, 2014 Islamic eschatologist Sheikh Imran Hosein lifts the veil on the Serpent's seed and very lucidly explains the situation in Ukraine, the reasons for the fall of the Russian Empire and the role of Jews in the organization and conduct of the Bolshevik Revolution.
He explains, Jewish agents of the City of London, Gorbachev and the drunken traitor Yeltsin, betrayed Russia according to the Talmudic strategy toward Jewish global hegemony via the Harvard Project and Houston Projects (Google translate). Exposing Jewish rule over the Western (once) Christian world he sees the current rulers of Russia as wise and patriotic people. This URL demonstrates that the governments and people of the once Christian world are not free but pawns of the City of London and its 'think tanks'.

US air strikes against ISIS in Syria seem to have been coordinated with the Ukraine ceasefire, as a smoke-screen hiding an effort to get even with Russia over a NATO black-eye received in Ukraine. If the US can get away with such air strikesand that appears very likelythen the strikes will escalate until NATO takes on the Syrian armed forces in a final effort to achieve a Libyan-style regime-change in Syria. There should be no illusion concerning implications of an ISIS take-over of Syria. The Orthodox Christians will be slaughtered in a genocide intended to put paid to any possible End-time alliance between the Muslim world and the Roman World Empire [Fatima must have been planned under Benedict XV; negotiations have been public since Pope John Paul II. Our commentary echoes the words of Jewish Jesuit Malachi Martin (sometimes writing under the pseudonym Michael Serafian) and served as secretary to Jewish Cardinal Augustin Bea during preparations for Vatican II. Mohammed prophesied that Muslims would enter into an End-Time alliance with Rome].
Secondly, while the Russian government may be able to get away with a policy of avoidance of nuclear war with NATO over Syria, public opinion in Russia will not tolerate such a policy in response to a slaughter of Orthodox Christians in Syria.
The ultimate implication of such a success in Syria is that NATO will then get what the Zionists desperately want, i.e., nuclear war with Russia. It now seems inevitable that such a nuclear war will take place and that it will occur sooner rather than later. When that war takes place within the next 5-10 years time or even sooner, the world will experience the Malhama or Armageddon . . . Our Islamic eschatological view is that Pax Judaica is not possible without such a nuclear war which, it is hoped, will wipe out both Russia and her NATO rivals. Our view is that Dajjal's 'day-like-a-week' [referring to the rise of the Satan-incarnate antichrist or "beast" and the end of Daniel's Seventieth Week and the perception that time is moving faster. Jesus the Son of Mary would descend from the sky with his hands resting on the wings of two angels (Zechariah 14:4-5; Matthew 17:1-3; 24:31; Acts 1:9-22) and kill Dajjal the False Messiah or Anti-Christ; this] will commence with the Malhama when Israel emerges from the nuclear holocaust to succeed USA as the ruling State in a post-nuclear world.

Britain and Canada involved in Foiled US Venezuelan Coup Plot
February 16, 2015 TeleSUR provided detailed coverage of Washington's war on Venezuelan democracy . . . US funded and supported key opposition fascist figures Antonio Ledezma, Maria Corina Machado and Leopoldo Lopez released a joint February 11 communique a day before the foiled coup. Titled "A Call on Venezuelans for a National Accord for the Transition," it promoted regime change. Called for Venezuela to be handed back to monied interests. Called Bolivarian fairness "anti-democra(tic) . . . inefficient and . . . corrupt." Run by "an unscrupulous elite (making) the State totalitarian." Creating "a humanitarian crisis" . . .
Ledezma, Marhado and Lopez want Maduro's government violently overthrown, democracy crushed. Washington, Britain and Canada hatched the latest plot to return Venezuela to its bad old days. TeleSUR reported new details . . .
Venezuelan authorities identified US embassy personnel involved. So were a Royal Canadian Mounted Police official and UK diplomatic corp member, according to National Assembly President Diosdado Cabello. They sought information on airport capabilities in case needed in an emergency. Computers seized had detailed coup plans, including maps showing targets to be bombed. A video showed military officials announcing Maduro's government was no longer recognized. It was scheduled to be aired after planned bombings were launched.

Rare Amateur 9/11 Footage with Audio not shown on TV
February 13, 2015 This footage starts shortly after the alleged planes hit the WTC. The filmographer (Richard A. Siegel) captures all three buildings as they collapse across the Hudson. There are no political or whodunit overtones. There are no conspiracies injected into the story. You have a good view with solid audio from a guy standing on a pier surrounded by those whose loved ones are trapped in the buildings. It was not aired on any network news program. It contains lots of bomb detonation sounds and smoke . . . Full story: youtube.com
Comment: It is patent all three buildings were planned demolitions. This is very important new evidence.
Dhimmitude is Brainwashing
Historically, the term Dhimmi describes a "non-Muslim under protection of Muslim law" (The Oxford Dictionary of Islam). As conquered people under Islamic domination in their own lands, Jizyah tax must be paid by the dhimmis as a sign of submission (according to the Qur'an and hadith). Thereafter they may retain their religious beliefs under certain restrictions and given some legal protection in a subservient status.
Dhimmitude is a state of insecurity requiring submission to psychological humiliation characterized by victims siding with their oppressors; the moral justification of the victim supports his oppressors' evil behaviour. A dhimmi loses the possibility of revolt because revolt arises from a sense of injustice and he loathes himself in order to praise his oppressors (Dr. M. L. Goel, Professor Emeritus of Political Science, University of West Florida). The fact dhimmitude is a global phenomenon imposed upon everyone unawares, including Muslims, by Islam's archenemies may be difficult to accept, so I will give some examples to illustrate the presence of dhimmitude in our society.
First I invite you to read the following testimony recorded by attorney Horst Mahler imprisoned for speaking truth in court. Thereafter I shall cite examples by which you will recognize how your mind, too, has been brainwashed, manipulated and brought under submission by this psychological weapon dhimminitude.
Soul Murder of the German People
By Attorney Horst Mahler
February 25, 2009 The peculiarity of my life story is that I went into Politics in quite furious ways, all the way to the Red Army faction that had prescribed itself to the concept of an armed fight against this system, generally speaking. What moved us to take this path was our belief in the Holocaust. We believed what was said, what we were taught in school about the German people, or rather its history under the National Socialist government. What they taught us in school, and what they disseminated in the media is what I had internalized. I was looking for a way to break out of this guilt complex . . . I believed in the Holocaust, and was one day . . . confronted with the question whether I, as a lawyer and defense attorney, would represent a German, named Stefan Reinecke, who was accused of Holocaust denial and charged. And, of course, when as a lawyer I am asked this [by a defendant], naturally, I will say: "Yes, I will defend you." Then it became necessary to engage myself intensely to discover the facts and alleged evidence for this occurrence that we call Holocaust. And I found out there is no evidence. There is only a statement that it happened. And I found out that the claim was examined sufficiently and that no other historical phenomena were examined more thoroughly than this Holocaust claim. It's a flat out lie! So when the Bundesgerichtshof (Federal Court of Germany) says there are thousands of witnesses who claim there was a Holocaust, then this is a lie . . .
That which Bishop Richard Williams told me is exactly what I have noticed: 'I went from believing in the Holocaust into a situation where I had to deal with the evidence. I found out that there is no evidence available.' There are several court cases that have taken place, also the writing of a Professor of History, Jackschitz in Vienna, who had exactly the same experience. He also said, 'Well, everyone knows about it, and I made the assumption it would be very easy to bring this to the court who had asked him to provide the information that the Holocaust is a historical event. Then he worked on it for three years with this court order to examine the issue. He researched all the literature and after three years he wrote to the courts stating that the original assertion [that the Holocaust exists] can no longer be held up. He came expressly to the conclusion, according to his knowledge, that it is now no longer lawful to apply the precedents of existing case law as the basis for a conviction in court and to sustain a claim that the Holocaust is obvious.
It is all about applying self-defense. As a German, I and the German people as a whole are in a situation where not only do we have the right to practice self-defense, we are obligated to it. We as people in the center of Europe with the cultural substance that is within us, have the duty to resist their efforts to murder our SOUL, to destroy our spiritual being and with that to wipe us out. THIS IS WHAT THIS IS ABOUT. I am not waiting for others to do this, I do it myself. I speak the truth the way truth reveals itself to me. And this truth is: THERE WAS NO HOLOCAUST, THEREFORE WE CANNOT FIND ANY EVIDENCE. THERE IS ONLY THAT WHICH IS HAMMERED INTO OUR HEADS BY THE JEWISH MEDIA, AND THEIR ASSERTION THAT THERE WAS A HOLOCAUST, AND THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF PROOFS, AND HE WHO ACCEPTS THIS WITHOUT EXAMINING IT HIMSELF, IS COMMITTING A CRIME AGAINST THE GERMAN PEOPLE.
The first ones to mention as criminals are the uppermost judges [often Jews] that make all the decisions for the lower courts and force the basis that the Holocaust is obvious [meaning it does not need to be proven by the courts]. It's not only bending the law, but it's the tool for soul murder of the German people. The Red Robes in Karlsruhe are guilty of this x-times. I will say it again and againand as I am in custodyI have about 12 years of incarceration before meand what the result of this will beI am 73 years oldthis is as life sentenceand this is exactly their practice: In Germany there is practically a life-sentence for anyone who does not subjugate himself to the lie. [Dhimmitude]. Jews of course make us an offer, that by subjugation to the lie we have an opportunity not to have to face any more difficulties with the lawand the goal of our enemies otherwise (is to give us a life sentencebecause after people come out, they accuse them of old statements from years before and put them back in jailthis goes on indefinitely. People need to know that when the court accuses a person of Holocaust denial there is no defense whatsoever. And the court does not have to prove the Holocaust to the defendant, just say: "The Holocaust exists because it is said!" this is communist germany!) . . . [Apparently the 1985-1988 Zündel trial was the last Revisionist trial where matters of fact were openly canvassed as part of the evidentiary process. Certainly none of our evidence was received].
But he who feels and is convinced that his life is not worth living if he subjugates himself to the lie disappears for life behind bars, and because I have often said these things publicly with the knowledge that their bat will come swinging at me, they will find ways to put me away for the rest of my life. It had to be shown [to the public] that they really do this. The Germans are in a situation where they can rot in jail for life if they do not subjugate themselves to the lie. AND HERE I SAY, WHATEVER MAY HAPPEN TO US, I CAN SAY THIS IN THE NAME JESUS CHRIST: "WHOEVER DOES NOT TAKE UP THEIR CROSS AND FOLLOW ME, IS NOT WORTHY OF ME" (Matthew 10:38) . . .

Comment: We have all been brought into dhimmitude under submission to the BIG LIES and myths of the extermination of six million Jews by Germany in World War I, six million Jews exterminated by Germany in World War II, and six million Jews exterminated between the wars by the Jewish-ruled USSR; the ridiculous myth that 19 Arab hijackers and CIA employee Osama bin Laden planned and executed 9/11; that aeroplanes flew into the WTC and Pentagon; the BIG LIE concerning President Saddam Hussein's WMD; that BIG LIE that so-called Jews are related to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob by flesh or faith, or are even Semitic; the cowardly deception Muslims were involved in 9/11; the BIG LIE that Hitler was a rogue; the lie that "white man" brought slaves to the United States; the blasphemy of trinitarianism; the pagan dogmas of Easter and Christmas; political correctness [hypocrisy]; the false flag, black ops against Malaysia and Russia, bombings and shootings in Westfield and Marriott properties worldwide; the BIG LIE of global warming and climate change; impoverishment by 'free trade', genocidal globalization; universal glorification of homosexuality and multiculturalism which are accursed of God; War on the abstract noun "terrorism" that was planned, incited, funded, armed and directed by the City of London and vassal states of her Empire.
Under Vatican and Talmudic dimmitude, political Islam and political Zionism are being forced into controlled conflict for the 'hot stage' of World War III. So long as the world submits to the IMF, WB and BIS, supports the petrodollar US fractional reserve banking fraud, bails out commercial bank losses and obtains a licence for every aspect of life, he may hallucinate on the opiate of his false religion as a servile dhimmi in "submission" (Islam) to Judaeo-Romanism, her (once) Protestant daughters and Talmudic Judaism.
Zechariah Chapter Twelve
In Zechariah chapter 12 we pass from Israel's rejection of Messiah in the previous chapter which we studied in Newsletter 876, past two thousand years of the Gentile dispensation, to the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week and Israel's final deliverance and salvation. Throughout this period Judea is ruled by the "worthless or idol shepherd" of pagan Rome, papal Rome, her abominable daughter Islam, and ultimately Satan himself, cast down to Earth and incarnate in Rome's pope with whom Jewry will covenant when he restores peace following the brief 'hot stage' of the present World War III. Then by universal acclaim he will be declared president of one world government (Daniel 7:8-11; 8:9-27; 9:27; 11:35-38). Modern Israel has been restored in a condition of unbelief as foretold in Isaiah 1, much as it was at the time of Christ's first advent when the threads of God's dealings with Israel were finally dropped, not to be taken up "until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled" and our silver thread of grace is severed. Israel's "Sodom of strangers [Serpent's seed, Heb. 'zuwr,' impersonate the kinsmen of Abraham, Isaac and Israel], devour and plunder all they see," and Jesus prophesied that from now to the consummation, Jerusalem will be "deemed spiritually as Sodom and Egypt" (Luke 17:28-30; Revelation 11:8). Bypassing the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week, Zechariah 12 prophesies the great siege, Israel's national conversion (Zechariah 12:10 13:9; Romans 11:25-32) and God's wonderful deliverance of David's City.
Only when they were in the greatest straits did Joseph make himself known to his brethren, and when Jerusalem is in its dire extremity that memorable scene in the ancient land of the pyramids will be reproduced in all its pathos. Then their long despised and rejected one will say to His own after the flesh, "I am Jesus, your Brother whom you sold to Pilate. Do not grieve or be angry with yourselves because you delivered Me to be crucified for God sent Me before you to preserve a remnant in the earth and to save you by a great deliverance" (Genesis 45:1-15; Zechariah 13:6-9).
Zechariah 12:1-8 introduces us to the prophet's second burden (or threatening prediction) from the Lord that will distress Israel prior to her complete deliverance. "The burden of the Word of the Lord concerning Israel: Thus says the Lord, who stretches forth the heavens, and lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a bowl of reeling to all the peoples round about, when they are in the siege against Judah and against Jerusalem. In that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all peoples: all who lift it will be severely injured; and all peoples of the earth will come together against it".
In order to assuage doubt and build faith as to the fulfillment of the prophecy, the Lord reminds Israel that He is not an absentee landlord but the ever-present Sustainer of His creation, daily stretching forth the heavens and laying the foundations of earth, which, were it not upheld by His almighty power, it would wander from its orbit into ruin (Colossians 1:16-17). And as He formed our mortal spirit there are no restraints upon His ability continuously to mold the thoughts and intents of the heart in order to accomplish His purposes through men.
All the nations of earth will gather against Judah in the siege of Jerusalem. And the country of Judah like her capital will be a bowl of reeling God administers to the invaders and the burden will overcome and rupture them politically as one who has overrated his own strength in lifting a stone too heavy for him suffers injury. Israel will "fall" on Messiah, the Rock of offense, and be "broken" with contrition but that Rock will fall on Jerusalem's foes"all peoples, all the nations of the earth"the United Nationsand "grind them to powder" (Matthew 21:24; Daniel 2:44-45).
"In that day, says the Lord, I will smite every horse with bewilderment, and his rider with madness. But upon the house of Judah I will open My eyes, when I smite every horse of the Gentiles with blindness. Then the clans of Judah shall say to themselves, the inhabitants of Jerusalem have found strength in the Lord of hosts, their God. On that day will I make them like a hearth of fire among the faggots, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they will devour to the right and to the left all the peoples round about, while Jerusalem stands unmoved. And the Lord will give victory to the tents of [the poor rural folk of] Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the [mansions of the] inhabitants of Jerusalem may not be exalted over that of Judah".
Whereas from Calvary and throughout the Six Trumpet Judgments during the Gentile dispensation God appeared to close His eyes to Israel's welfare and "smite her with insanity, and blindness, and bewilderment" (Deuteronomy 28:28), He now opens wide His eyes upon the house of Judah to see and provide for her needs while He smites her foes with precisely the same three plagues so that they will destroy themselves (II Kings 6:18; Zechariah 14:12-13; Revelation 3:17-20) "in that day . . . when they shall be in the siege against Judah and against Jerusalem".
The tribal chiefs of the 144,000 find strength in the faith of their brethren who have remained in Jerusalem in the surety that as Israelites "it shall come to pass that all who call upon the Name of the Lord [in the appointed way] shall be delivered: for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord has said, and those who are saved will be those whom the Lord has called" (Zechariah 12:5-6; Joel 2:32; Deuteronomy 16:2, 16; Psalm 14:7; Obadiah 17-21; Romans 8:30). The repulse of the foe from the metropolis shall assure Judah that the Most High who dwells in Jerusalem will save them also, and in consequence of this trust in the Divine election, He will consume their foes on every hand "as a torch of fire in a ripe sheaf . . . and [the 144,000 daughters of] Jerusalem will be unmoved".
I believe that at the close of the Gentile dispensation Israel will be stripped of her military and made neutral. God chooses the weak to confound the mighty that all human glorying may be set aside; He will stand for the elect Israelites against their sworn enemy the so-called Jews. Thus because of Judah's meek acknowledgment of dependence on Jerusalem subordinate to His right arm (12:5), the Lord first saves the tents of Judah, weak and insecure, spread over the open country in order that the fortified capital may not lift itself above the defenseless land, that both Jerusalem and Judah may acknowledge the victory is the Lord's.
Daniel 7:8 signifies antichrist as a horn growing out of the fourth Gentile world empire and dwells on his worldly conquests as a global ruler. John and Paul describe him as "that man of sin, the son of perdition," a spiritual tyrant called the false prophet "having a form of godliness while denying the authority of God's Word."
"In that day [without military might or power] the Lord will defend and exalt the inhabitants of Jerusalem to a degree of strength far exceeding anything in their past history, [terrifying and blinding the warlike forces of the enemy so that day they will fight against one another (Zechariah 14:13-14)]. Then the stumbler who can scarce hold himself up, much less attack a foe, will become a hero like David; and even David's house shall exceed its highest fame of old, and become [superhuman] like God, like the Angel of the Lord, who once marched at the head of the armies of Israel".
What is briefly described by one prophet is more fully prophesied by the other. God's Covenant with natural Israel was breached when the nation crucified her Messiah on the sixty-ninth of Daniel's Seventy Weeks on the hour, day, month and year foretold in Exodus 12:6, Nehemiah 2:1, and Daniel 9:26. That breach brought the great convulsion of nature described in Matthew 27:45-53. The Sun darkened for three hours from noon: "the earth quaked, the rocks rent; and the graves were opened and many bodies of the sleeping saints arose and left their graves after His resurrection." This established the pattern for the terminus of the Gentile dispensation described in Joel 2:31-32, "The Sun shall be turned to darkness, and the Moon into blood, before the great and the terrible Day of the Lord. [I Thessalonians 4:16-17, "and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord"]. And it shall come to pass, that whoever calls on the Name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord has said, among the remnant [144,000 Israelites] He has called" (Isaiah 4:2; Obadiah 17; Zephaniah 1:14-18; Revelation 6:12-14). Zion will be the one place of safety for elect Israelites in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Revelation 11:5-6). Joel 3:1-21 tells of the judgments that will be inflicted upon their enemies after the midst of the Week, that is, in the second half of the Week while the Lord vindicates the promises of His Word.
The purpose of this earthquake at the close of the Gentile dispensation will be to demolish the Dome of the Rock and ignite the "hot stage" of World War III in order to initiate judgment upon the Gentiles and as a means to bring the twelve Tribes of Israel back from exile, primarily from the now Muslim nations of the ancient Assyrian Empire to the land of the Covenant for their redemption. God deals with Israel as a nation, and only within the land of the Covenantpresently occupied by "strangers," the self-styled non-Semitic Jews. In addition to gathering genuine Israelites of the blood of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Lord will "also gather all nations, and bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for harming My people and My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations. They have parted My land and divided My people as their slaves, traded a boy for a harlot, and sold a maiden for wine that they might drink".
The First Committee of the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine (UNSCOP), on which each of the then fifty-five members of the United Nations was represented, held twelve meetings from May 6 to May 13, 1947, using the facilities for simultaneous interpretation available at Lake Success on May 6 to decide the make-up of UNSCOP that would determine the future of Palestine [UN docs. A/C.l/P.V.46-57 (May 6-13, 1947)]. The upshot of those meetings was that "all nations [the United Nations] . . . have parted My land" (Joel 3:1-3) in partitioning Palestine and will part it when UN Resolution 181 of 1947 is enforced following World War III (Daniel 11:39; Zechariah 14:2).
Brother Branham said, "If you want to see what time of year it is, look on the calendar. If you want to see what time of night it is, look at the clock. If you want to see what day you're living in, look where the Jews [he means Israelites] are. That's God's timepiece."
"And look. The very night, the very day that the angel of the Lord met me, 1946 [he means 1947] on May the seventh, at Green's Mill, Indiana, that same day the treaty of peace was signed for the Jews and they were a established nation for the first time for twenty-five hundred years. Hallelujah."
"And tonight, the oldest flag in all the world, the six-point star of David, flies over Jerusalem for the first time in twenty-five hundred years, since the carrying away of Babylon. Jesus said, 'When you see the fig tree putting forth its buds.' There she is. There He said, 'Learn a parable. You say summer's nigh. When you see this, know that the times is at the door.' We're right at the end of time" (COD, p. 47:Q6).
"First, they were carried down into Egypt. Second, they were carried into Babylon, and the [times of the] Gentiles was issued in. And then, the third, they were carried or scattered by the Roman Empire, and 1947 on May the seventh, they were once more recognized among the nations of the world for the first time for twenty-five hundred years, the Jews were."
"Notice, two thousand, yeah, twenty-five hundred years the Jews has been scattered to every nation under heaven. As God hardened Pharaoh's heart, bringing them back, He hardened Hitler's heart, Mussolini's heart, and so forth, till He's drove them back to Palestine. Coming back they have made them a nation again, and on May the sixth, 1947, the Jewish flag was raised over Israel for the first time for twenty-five hundred years. The oldest flag in the world was raised for the first time in twenty-five hundred years. And He said in the last days He'd raise up a ensign over Jerusalem, showing that the time is at hand" (Beginning and Ending of the Gentile Dispensation, p. 10:89; Isaiah 11:10-16; 18; 30; 31; Zechariah 9:16; Matthew 24:32-34).
"Now, to see whether this Message that we got is connected with it or not. The very hour that Israel was signed in to be a nation; it was the very same hour, very same day, very same month, everything else: I was at Green's Mill, Indiana, when that Angel there appeared to me and sent me out on the field with this; after He had met me down on the river [in 1933] and told me what would take place, then commissioned me eleven years later at the same hour that Israel was signed in as a nation. It's all connected together" (The Ten Virgins, p. 444.99).
Leviticus 26:14-31 decrees a curse on the disobedient while verses 40-45 contain a promise to the penitent: "But if they confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathers in the treason they perpetrated against Me, and walking contrary to Me, so that I walked contrary to them and brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised heart is humbled and they accept the punishment for their iniquity; then I will remember My Covenant with Jacob, My Covenant also with Isaac and My Covenant with Abraham, and I will remember the land (and its desolation). For the land shall enjoy its sabbaths while it lies desolate in their absence, and they must make amends for their iniquity because they spurned My ordinances and their souls abhorred My statutes. Yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them so as to annihilate them completely and break My Covenant with them: for I am the Lord their God. But for their sakes I will remember the Covenant with their forefathers, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I might be their God: I am the Lord".
Note carefully the Old Covenant was exclusively with the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob whose forefathers participated in the exodus from Egyptian bondage. It specifically excludes any other people, including the Edomite descendants of Esau and the Khazars, even when they assume the more respectable Japhetic appellation of "Ashkenaz" as they had assumed the name Jew.
In 487BC Hosea 6:1-3 prophesied: "Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for He has torn, and He will heal us; He has smitten, and He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us: in the third day He will raise us up, and we will live in His sight. Then we shall know if we follow on to know the Lord: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come to us as the rain, as the latter and former rains that water the earth." II Peter 3:8: "A thousand years is as one day with the Lord," and as 2,015 + 487 = 2,515 years shows, we are now living "in the third day".
"As Israel (chosen people of God) in majority forfeited their rights in the Book of Life by rejecting Jesus, so the majority of the Gentile church will also come into condemnation with the resultant removal of their names from the Book of Life by rejecting the Word and thereby entering into the world ecumenical movement which is the image erected unto the beast" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 274:2).
Soon the Mighty Judge will summons the Gentile nations to war so that He can take recompense in Israel's behalf, fulfill His promise to the penitent and deliver His dread decision in the metaphorical "Valley of Jehoshaphat" (II Chronicles 20). The imagery is furnished by the great deliverance God gave Jehoshaphat, when the forces of Ammon, Moab, and Edom came against Him; his name means "Jehovah has judged"; the king appealed to God who turned their swords against one another as is also prophesied for this coming battle (Ezekiel 38:21-23; Haggai 2:6, 20-23; Zechariah 14:12-15). Here the Lord will "plead" against the Gentiles to charge them with the crimes of scattering His people and treating them with the greatest contempt throughout the history of His servant nation. The word implies the nations will argue their own cause in an attempt to justify themselves, but of course they have no ground on which to stand.
This is looking at the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week, when God calls Israel "My people, and My heritage Israel" whereas for two thousand five hundred years the Northern kingdom was "Lo-ammi, not My people, and I will not be your God. [Hence the folly of British Israel/Christian Identity theologya Jewish HOAX perpetrated by cabbalist John Dee and Rabbi Menasseh ben Israelis manifest (II Timothy 3:9)]. But when the children of Judah and the children of Israel are gathered together [from exile to the Land of the Covenant (Jeremiah 3:18) following the invasion at the start of Daniel's Seventieth Week from which the self-styled Jews will flee], and appoint themselves one Head [Jesus Christ the Son of David in the second half of the Seventieth Week] He will say to them: You are the sons of the living God" (Hosea 1:9-11; Isaiah 11:11-16). This brings us to the earthquake of Zechariah 14:3-8, Revelation 11:13-14, 12:15-16, Ezekiel 38:20 and Haggai 2:6, "the time of Jacob's trouble" and the fulfillment of Zechariah 12:9-14 following the martyrdom of the two witnesses of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 when Israel will recognize Christ's second or 'parousia' coming (Jeremiah 30:1 31:40). Zechariah's description of the brave gallantry of the Israelites is a metaphor for the confidence of their new-found faith in Jehovah rather than valiant prowess in physical warfare, for the battle will be the Lord's.
Most people in the circle of this Message believe that following Calvary only half a week of Daniel's Seventy Weeks remained outstanding, but as shown on the diagram, this cannot be the case. Rather there remain three and a half years wherein the New Covenant ministered to Israel by John the Baptist and Jesus will be confirmed by two Israelite prophets, and a further three and a half years thereafter.
Zechariah 12:9-14 "And on that day, [when the 144,000 are born-again spiritual supermen as prophesied in verses 1-8] I will seek to destroy all nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour out upon the house of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and supplication, so when they look on Me whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps for a firstborn".
In this passage no thought is given to the coming conflict, or victory, no reeling bowl for the Gentiles, no torch among the sheaves, no march of a hero at the head of conquering hosts. On the contrary, all is subjective, subdued, inwardly and outwardly spiritual. Israel is seen at the end of the world standing alone in her relation to Him whom they rejected, and meditating upon the character of their great crime. One thought occupies all minds, one feeling pervades all hearts. Each tribe, family and individual separates to weep in silence and solitude over the grievous infliction.
Psalm 51:4-10, "Against You and You alone have I sinned, committing deicide in Your sight so that Your sentence against me is just and blameless in judgment (Revelation 15:2-4). But I was born in iniquity and in sin my mother conceived me. Surely You desire truth in my inward being; therefore teach me this wisdom. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. And after You have chastised me, cause me to hear joy and gladness, so that the bones which You have broken may rejoice. Hide Your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a steadfast spirit in me".
Zechariah 12:11, "In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon." This refers to the lamentation over King Josiah who was mortally wounded "in the valley of Megiddo" (II Chronicles 35). He is introduced as a type of Messiah because he was slain on account of the sins of the Judahites; his reign was the closing manifestation of mercy on the part of God; unspeakable misery came upon the Judahites immediately afterwards as it has since Calvary under the Trumpet judgments; and the lamentation for his death rested upon the mingled feelings of love, and of sorrow for their own sins as the cause of his death.
This will be Israel's Day of Atonement when they afflict their souls in mourning for their murder of Messiah (Leviticus 23:27-32). "On that day I will set Myself with determined earnestness to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem".
Brother Branham deals with these verses in An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages (p. 36-42) where He speaks of the coming God, Jesus Christ:
Revelation 1:7, "Behold, He comes with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also who pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen".
He is coming. Jesus is coming. God is coming. The Prophet is coming. The Priest and King is coming. The ALL in ALL is coming. Even so, Lord Jesus, come quickly. Amen.
He is coming. He is coming in clouds, clouds of glory as when He was seen upon the Mount of Transfiguration, [that is, in the Shekinah (Matthew 24:3; 30-31) as in our sign of His imminent parousia seen over Arizona on February 28, 1963 and featured on the index page of our Church Website], and His garments were shining as the power of God enfolded Him. And EVERY eye shall see Him. That means this is not the Rapture [or translation]. This is when He comes to take over His rightful place as World Ruler (Zechariah 14:9). This is when those who have pierced Him with their denominational creeds and doctrines shall mourn, and all the people shall wail in terror because of Him who is the Word. [This is not the physical (Gk. 'erchomai') return of the glorified Jesus, for His precious feet will not touch this earth until He returns with the glorified saints of all Ages to step out on the atomic ashes of the wicked for the millennium (Isaiah 13:9; 51:6; Daniel 2:44; Malachi 4:1-3). On that day there will be no survivors on earth to "see" His return (Nahum 1:5; Zephaniah 3:8). This will be the revelation of His (Gk. 'parousia') Coming to Israel in W_O_R_D form by the Message of the two witnesses of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 after their martyrdom by Rome.
Zechariah 12:10, "And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for His firstborn".
John 19:33-37, "When the soldiers came to Jesus, and saw that He was dead already, they did not break His legs: but one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and there came out blood and water. And he who saw it bore record, and his record is true: and he knows that he tells the truth, in order that you might believe. For these things were done, that the Scripture should be fulfilled, 'A bone of Him shall not be broken' (Exodus 12:46; Psalm 34:20). And again another Scripture said: They shall look on Him whom they pierced".
Note the change of person in the quotationfrom "Me whom" for "Him whom." In Zechariah it is Messiah who is speaking of Himself, while in John's Gospel the evangelist is speaking of Messiah. Note also that although the Roman soldier thrust his spear into our Lord's side, in both the Old and New Testaments God holds Jewry guilty (Matthew 27:25; Revelation 1:7).
There was a preliminary mourning at the crucifixion. Luke 23:46-48, "When Jesus had cried with a loud voice, He said, Father, into Your hands I commend My spirit: and having said this, He gave up the ghost. Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God, saying: Certainly this was a righteous man. And all the multitudes who assembled to see the sight, when they saw what had taken place, returned home striking their breasts." But the real fulfillment began when the multitudes of Israelites and proselytes at Pentecost were "pricked in their heart" (Acts 2:37).
As I have said, this is not the visual (Gk. 'optomai') sighting of the glorified Man but of the sign of Christ's Presence (or Gk. 'parousia') Coming by faith signified by the Shekinah that will appear over the Mount of Olives in the near future (Matthew 24:3, 23-31; Acts 1:6-11).
Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel will be the revelation of His invisible arrival and subsequent Presence with His elect in W_O_R_D form. Throughout the Seven Church Ages the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals, and because the saints had only PART-Word, Christ was a Mediator for their ignorance of the whole. The revelation of the mystery of the Seven Seals in 1963 brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form through the spoken Word of William Branham His prophet, for Christ is the fullness of the Word].
Brother Branham continues, "This is the revelation story of Zechariah 12:9-14. Zechariah prophesied this about 2,500 years ago. It is just about to take place. Listen. "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced. . ." Now, when is the Gospel returning to Israel? When the day of the Gentiles is finished. The Gospel is ready to go back to the Hebrews. Oh, if I could just tell you something that is about to happen right in this our day. This great thing that is about to happen will carry over to Revelation 11 and pick up those two witnesses, those two prophets, Moses and Elijah, turning the Gospel back to the Hebrews. [That "great thing" is Christ's parousia in Israel's former or teaching rain under the ministry of their two prophets, and the latter or harvest rain to the Gentile Bride]. We're ready for it. Everything is in order. [In the same manner] as the Hebrews brought the Message to the Gentiles, even so the Gentiles will take it right back to the Hebrews, and the Rapture [or resurrection and translation] will come.
[As the born-again Hebrews brought the Message to us through the ministry of the prophet Paul in a time of apostasy and persecution, the Message will return to Israel through a prophetic ministry in a time of apostasy and persecution].
Now, remember what we have read in Revelation and Zechariah. Both come right after the tribulation. [Brother Branham is speaking of the birth of Israel in one day in the second three and a half years of Daniel's Seventieth week]. The Church of the First-born does not go through the tribulation. We know that. The Bible teaches that.
At that time it says that God is going to pour out His Spirit upon the house of Israel. It is the same Spirit that was poured upon the Gentiles in their day. [By the former or teaching rain: "Faith comes by hearing and understanding the revealed Word for your day," making your life a written epistle of that part of the Word]. "And they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and they shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his first-born. In that day there will be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadad-rimmon in the valley of Megiddon. And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart . . ." and each one of the houses apart when He comes in clouds of glory at His Second Coming. [This will be the fulfillment of the second purpose of Gabriel's sixfold instructions to Daniel regarding his Seventieth Week: "To make an end of sin," or unbelief in the revealed Word of GodDaniel 9:24.
A still more elaborate description of the mourning is given in verses 12-14. Not only the capital but the whole land shall mourn; every family and each individual will mourn intensely by personal revelation, and the wives will mourn apart before the Lord. Four families are enumerated, David and Nathan from the royal line, and Levi and Shimei from the priestly line, one leading family and one subordinate branch to show that the grief pervades all, from the highest to the lowest. And all that remain after the fiery ordeal of Zechariah 13:8-9 in which two-thirds of the nation will fall and the remaining third is tried to separate the elect (Malachi 3:2-6), proving this penitential grief has not been in vain].
Those Jews that pierced Him shall see Him as it says in chapter 13, "Whence did You get those wounds?" and He will say, "In the house of My friends." [This will be the fulfillment of the third purpose of Gabriel's sixfold instructions to Daniel regarding his Seventieth Week: "To make reconciliation for iniquity," or doing what you know is wrongDaniel 9:24.
Amos 8:2-3, 7-10 says, "The end is come upon My people of Israel; I will pass him by no more. And the songs of the temple shall be howlings. In that day, says the Lord God: there shall be many corpses every place; they shall cast them out in silence. . . . The Lord has sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works. Will the land not quake for this, and every dweller therein mourn? It will heave and sink like the rise and fall of the Nile. And it shall come to pass in that day, says the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in a clear day: [this is not an eclipse but a catastrophe that will subvert the order of nature]: and I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness on every head [as a sign of mourning]; and I will make it like the mourning for an only son, and the end of it like a bitter day".
Amos 9:9-12, describes how, by its dispersion Israel comes, as it were, into a sieve, in which the good corn and the dust and dirt are tossed up together. Yet this is only in order to make a speedy separation, and the good grain remains. In Amos 2:5 we see the same judgment that destroys Israel is executed against Judah but without dissolving its national existence. "All the sinners of My people shall die by the sword, who say, The evil shall not overtake nor reach us. In that day will I raise up the hut of the Davidic monarchy that is fallen down, and close up its breaches and restore its prostrate ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: that they may possess (Genesis 27:37; Numbers 24:18) the remnant of [Adamic] Edom, and of all the heathen who are called by My Name, says the Lord that does this".
"In that day" God will so vindicate His honor by judgments so that none else "shall be exalted" (Isaiah 2:11-20; Zechariah 14:9). Suffering shall lead to repentance (Isaiah 19:17-22) when Christ reveals Himself to Israel by His visible parousiathe only means whereby their obstinate unbelief will be overcome (Psalms 102:16; Isaiah 52:1-6; Zechariah 12:10; 14:5).
Zechariah 13:1, "In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the House of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness." This verse resumes and completes the process began in Zechariah 12:10 and treats the same parties: "the House of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem," standing for the whole nation. He who poured out the spirit of supplication will also provide the means of purification from sin. A fountain is shut up so long as it remains underground, sealed from access (Songs 4:12); it is opened when it breaks forth and flows freely. The reference appears to be drawn from the sprinkling of the Levites with water at their consecration for purification from sin (Numbers 8:7), and the sprinkling of persons contaminated by contact with death, with the water prepared from the ashes of the red heifer, which removed uncleanness. In both these cases the impurity denoted the defilement of sin, and like the laying on of hands the outward purification was a symbol of the inward work. So the water which flows from the fountain is a water of sprinkling by which sin and uncleanness are removed. It need not be renewed from time to time, as was the case with the Levitical waters, but issues from a living wellspring. The water represents the blood which cleanses from all sin (I John 1:7), the blood of that Sacrifice which was typified in the sin-offering of the red heifer, the blood that removes guilt and the dominion of sin, a shadow and type of the blood of Christ which released the Spirit].
Not only will it be a mournful time for the Hebrews who rejected Him as Messiah, but it will be a mournful time for those left of the Gentiles who have rejected Him as the Savior of this day.
There'll be weeping and wailing. The sleeping virgins will be wailing. They represent the church that refused to get oil (symbol of the Holy Spirit) in their lamps (symbol of the body or holder of the oil) until it was too late. It wasn't that they were not good people. They were virgins and that signifies a high moral order. But they didn't have oil in their lamps so they were cast out where there was wailing and gnashing of teeth. . ."
"The Bride will be taken off the earth. She will be caught up before the great tribulation to meet her Lord in the air. For three and one-half years while the retributive wrath of God is poured out, she will be in the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Then will He return [in W_O_R_D form by revelation of the Message of two prophets], leaving His Bride in "His Father's house," while He makes Himself known to His brethren. [This will be Christ's parousia Coming in the office of Son of man to regenerate the 144,000 elect Israelites in one day. Since Revelation 12:7-12 is in parenthesis describing the spiritual battle that ensues following Satan's expulsion from the heavenly realm, and verse 12 refers to the Third Woe and its devastating impact that will ultimately cause the consummation of life on land and sea (Revelation 8:13; 10:6), verses 13-17 should be read from Revelation 12:6. When Satan is cast down to earth he will persecute the whole house of Israel who return "into their place" in the Land of the Covenant at this time where they will be nourished Spiritually for three and a half years through the ministry of two Hebrew prophets. "And if any man wants to harm them, Fire issues from their mouths, and consumes their enemies: should anyone wish to injure them, he must be killed in this way." At the end of their ministry Rome will break her covenant with the international Jews (Revelation 11:5-7; 17:16-17; Daniel 9:27
At this very time, the antichrist covenant that the Jews have made with Rome will be broken. Rome and her allies then send their troops ["as a flood"] to destroy all the God-fearing, Word-abiding
Jews[Israelites (Revelation 12:15)]. But as they come against the city to destroy it, there will appear in the heavens the sign of the Coming of the Son of Man with His mighty armies to destroy them who have been destroying the earth (Zechariah 14:4; Revelation 11:18). With the enemy repulsed . . .
[How is "the enemy repulsed"? In Israel, he will be repulsed by an earthquake coinciding with the visible physical resurrection of Israel's two prophets. "And the earthquake helped the woman [Israel's elect] by swallowing seven thousand soldiers the Devil-incarnate pope had sent to destroy her. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, that keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." Then Rome will begin to force the mark of the beast and 144,000 will flee to the cleft of the Rock (Revelation 11:7-13; 12:15-17). The Jews' international banksters will side with Judaeo-Communist Russia they created and financed at the cost of US and British taxpayers, and Russia will bomb Vatican City State and mainland USA. This was precisely what the United States and the Vatican planned for Russia in 1960 as "first aggressor for peace" (Avro Manhattan, The Dollar and the Vatican, p. 79-90). The deaths of Stalin and Pope Pius XII postponed their strategy, which has since been reactivated under the Bush I and II, Clinton I and Obama administrations as "preemptive war" veiled behind "the war against terror" in which the terrorists are us! The Russian bombing will fulfill the seventh of seven consecutive visions shown to Brother Branham in 1933.
Daniel 12:1-9 is a variant of the vision that appeared on Mount Transfiguration (Matthew 17:1-8). Here we see Moses on the Old Testament side of Jesus Christ standing upon the River of Life with Elijah on the New Testament side. Christ explains that after three and a half years their revelation of the erstwhile sealed Seven Trumpet mysteries will be complete and themselves martyred. This agrees with what Christ revealed to us in Revelation 12:7-17 and 13:1-9.
Returning to the start of Daniel's Seventieth Week the earthquake of Revelation 6:12, 8:5 and 16:18 will destroy the Dome of the Rock at the dispensation change, and the Jews will immediately restore Israel's animal sacrifices and build a new abomination of desolation on the Temple site (Revelation 11:1-3; 13:4-18). Daniel 12:10-13 informs us that Rome will ban the animal sacrifices, and provides us with a timeline for the outcome of the prophetic ministry in the new birth of the elect Israelites who "endure unto the end" . . . after the midst of the Week (Matthew 24:13; Revelation 13:10)].
"With the enemy repulsed, Jesus comes and presents Himself to the 144,000. Having seen His mighty acts of salvation, they have come to know His power. But also seeing His wounds and knowing that they had rejected Him even to that moment, causes them to cry out in the agony of terror and fear, even as did their brethren of old when they stood before Joseph, being sore afraid that they would be killed. But as Joseph said, "Don't be angry with yourselves. It is all right. God was in it all. He did it to preserve life." Even so will Jesus speak peace and love to them.
Why did the Jews reject Jesus? God was in it all. It was the only way that He could bring out the Gentile Bride. He died on the cross to preserve the life of the Gentile Church.
Now these 144,000 are not in the Bride. In Revelation 14:4 they are called virgins and they follow the Lamb wherever He goes. The fact that they have not defiled themselves with women shows that they are eunuchs (Matthew 19:12). The eunuchs were the keepers of the bridal chambers. They were attendants. Notice that they do not sit in the throne but are before the throne. No, they are not in the Bride, but will be in the glorious millennial reign.
[Israel is God's servant nation, not Messiah's Bride. These 144,000 elect cannot be in Christ's Bride as the marriage, our new birth, occurs during the Gentile dispensation, and "Israel is blinded until the Gentile dispensation is fulfilled" (Romans 11:25). There are individual Israelites in Christ's Bride, but Israel will be born as a nation in one dayall 144,000 of them, another flaw in British Israel/Christian Identity theology].
We then see that when these last of Israel have been joined in love to the Lord, and the enemy has been destroyed [in the battle of Armageddon], God will prepare His holy mountain, His new Garden of Eden for the Bride and His and her attendants [the 144,000 elect Israelites] for the thousand year honeymoon upon the earth. As Adam and Eve were in the garden and did not finish out the thousand years, now Jesus our last Adam and His Eve (True Church) will fulfill all the plan of God.
Oh, how the Bible repeats itself. The scene of Joseph and his brethren is about to be repeated, for Jesus is coming [to Israel] soon . . . there is one more thing I want to bring to your attention about this end time. You recall that as Joseph stood before his brethren when Benjamin was not with them he spoke through an interpreter though he knew the Hebrew well. He spoke to his brethren in another tongue. Did you know that the first Gentile Age (the head of gold, Babylonian Age) went out with a Message in tongues written on a wall? This age is going out the same way. The abundance of tongues in this day is a further proof that the "times of the Gentiles" is [about] over and God is turning back to Israel.
He is coming soon. The Alpha and Omega, the Prophet, Priest and King, the All in All, Lord God of Hosts, is coming soon. Even so Lord Jesus, the One and Only True God, come quickly"!
