"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our resurrected, glorified Lord Jesus Christ; thanks for joining us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word. We extend an especially warm welcome to the new reader and subscriber and invite your questions, suggestions and corrections.
We are seeking the assistance of competent believers to translate about seventy PowerPoint Slides from English or Tamil or Telugu into Microsoft Punjabi and Microsoft Hindi and cut the old and paste the new language. This is an urgent request.
The four horses of the Apocalypse were ridden by one horseman whose identity was hidden until the start of the Laodicean Church Age when he mounted his sickly green pale horse for the final leg of his journey to perdition. His name is called Death in contradistinction to Jesus Christ "whose Name is called the Word of God" which is eternal Life. Most so-called Christians have learned very little from Christianity, and there is no time to lose. Satan is furiously riding against children of the first and the last Adam (Genesis 3:15). He knows the time is short, and you must understand that the end of the Gentile dispensation is at hand.
"The ancient landmarks which our fathers set have been removed," leaving all but God's elect without moral compass, so good is called evil, and evil good; peace is war and love is hate .However God sent a prophet for those whom He has called to "restore the apostolic faith and finish the mystery of God" because His Absolute is a clear revelation of His Holy Bible.
Attacks attributed to al Qaeda, ISIS, al Nusra, et al . . . ad nauseam, are policy objectives of the Judaeo-Vatican controlled west directed toward recovering the territory of Imperial Rome in the Middle East and North Africa with the genocide of Jacob, their rival who "mourns in lowly exile there," the dispossessed true heir to the land and the Covenant of Israel.
Attacks attributed to "terrorism" throughout the world are almost entirely false flag, even black flag operations devised by military and intelligence agencies of "the allies" whose leaders have been compromised to serve the 'hidden hand.' Global hegemony is the prize so life is cheap, and whatever the price cost is of no importance (Matthew 4:8-9).
Our apostate once Christian nations are corrupt before God and full of violence. Last week a lawless Member of Parliament wrote me advocating same-sex marriage which, she said, "72% of Australians support." Her eyes have been darkened that they see not "the ancient landmarks," the Absolute for 6,000 years. There is more hope of a fool than of someone wise in their own conceit.
Our news items report the present state of humanity, the world, and Satan's intrigues. Our main article is an exposition of Revelation Chapter 14 preceded by an outline of chapters 10 13 explaining how, after 2,000 years, Israel acknowledges God's manifest justice in his martyrdom in chapter 15. Please read slowly and prayerfully, proving the scripture references and following the links.
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.
Obama and Putin agree Turkish Dictator Erdogan must Go
March 28, 2016 [A]greement reached by Presidents Obama and Putin about two or three weeks ago that the continued tenure of Turkish President Erdogan is intolerable, and that he should be removed from office before he can start a wider war. Russian and US weapons are currently flowing into Turkey for the purpose of speeding the departure of the dictator. Contacts are also being made with the Turkish political parties, the top generals of the Turkish military, and others to help bring down the dictator. The Turkish nationalists are turning against Erdogan. The PKK will also mobilize. Erdogan's presidency is illegitimate because his most recent election victory was carried out with massive vote fraud.
Fighting inside Turkey on the level of a civil war is expected to begin during April . . . since Erdogan functions as the de facto commander of ISIS/Daesh, he could at any time order the total cessation of combat operations, and remove the main factor which is impelling civilians to flee from the terrorists in the combat zones. But he prefers to cash in, obtaining concessions like visa-free travel for Turks in the EU . . . Full story: voltairenet.org
Turkey boasts of 'deporting' known Terrorist Barkouri to Belgium
March 25, 2016 Brussels airport bomber Bakraoui was recruited while an ISIS Jihadi in Syria, because of his Belgian passport. While in Raqqah, at a suicide bomber training facility, he was taken by Turkish intelligence across the border where he was "arrested" and "deported" to the Netherlands . . . according to airline security sources, Bakraoui, as with other terrorists as well, was walked around security by employees of Israeli ICTS . . . [Dönmeh Jew] Erdogan is caught lying . . . Turkey is signatory to not only international conventions but NATO security agreements that preclude any threat to airline security from boarding a plane . . . Anyone on the no fly list, which all terrorist suspects are supposed to be on, can never fly commercial for the rest of their lives . . .
But if he went to Schipol airport as claimed he arrived at the Mossad's European transportation hub where all kinds of special treatment is available for terrorists . . . in a VT report published March 24, 2016, Kurdish forces inside Syria confirmed information received from a captured Turkish intelligence officer telling of a longstanding Turkish terror operation that had been sending jihadis like Bakraoui into Europe, aided by Turkish organized crime groups across the European Union . . .
Yesterday, the Syrian YPG, a Kurdish group inside Syria fighting ISIS while also under attack by Erdogan forces, announced in an exclusive VT report, that it had captured a Turkish officer north of Raqqah, the ISIS military headquarters inside Syria. That officer . . . confirmed in a story by Israeli news agency Haaretz, in planning the Brussels attacks and recruiting and training the suicide bombers including Bakraoui . . .
VT was given access to recorded confessions which detailed the role of the MIT in the Brussels explosions along with plans for more attacks across Europe. The "suspect" has confessed his role in planning the Brussels attack in coordination with ISIS at Raqqah . . . Turkish intelligence runs an operational planning center in an underground complex . . . under an athletic facility, contains stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons including sarin gas, swine flu and tons of materials for producing mustard and chlorine gas. The US hit the center in October 2014 in coordination with a Syrian "Tiger" unit which led to the capture of Qatari, Saudi and Turkish officers . . .
The interrogation notes we received thus far from European Department for Security and information (DESI) Secretary General Dr. Haissam Bou Said indicated that Turkish intelligence MIT was behind the horrific twin suicide bombings and that Turkish terror cells across Europe had been planted years ago in coordination with an organized crime infrastructure long involved in human trafficking, narcotics and working with Israeli and Saudi groups staging false flag terror attacks.
NATO had long been aware of Turkey's plan to destabilize the EU. European unemployment has soared under rising wages, increased taxation and strict environmental regulations while prime manufacturing jobs have gone to Turkey with that nation building an industrial base, including an arms industry as well, eclipsing EU growth. The manufactured refugee crisis, coordinated with Israel and Saudi Arabia, is simply a next step in a destabilization ploy, followed by what we are now seeing, a terror offensive . . . the EU with a corrupt and incompetent bureaucracy and intelligence agencies long infiltrated by the MIT and Mossad . . . add to that a controlled press . . .

Comment: The motive for the attacks in Paris and Brussels. Documents seized by YPG and SDF refute Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's claims . . . In these documents, the passage of ISIS gangs from all across the world, particularly Kazakhstan, Indonesia, and Tajikistan, from Turkey to Syria can be seen . . . ISIS gangs have been using the airports in Istanbul and Adana . . . since 2013 . . . bus tickets, electronic Turkish visas, residency permits, and documents with the stamps of Turkish immigrations and airport offices . . . information on the transportation of chemical and explosive materials from Turkey . . .

The Image unto the Beast of Imperial Rome (Revelation 3:11-15)
March 26, 2016 In 1947 President Truman announced that communism was to be the enemy, always and everywhere; military support would be offered to fight this enemy . . . (in 1949), NATO was born. Since the end of the Cold War, "terrorism" has taken the place of "communism" as the global enemy.
Since 1945, the United States has been almost continuously at war—Wikipedia identifies 145 separate entries for the US during this time period. Some of the lowlights include: Korea (1950–1953); Vietnam (1955–1975, inclusive of all years with advisors); Bay of Pigs, Cuba (1961); Laos (1962–1975); Dominican Republic (1965); Iraq (1991–present); Former Yugoslavia (1992–1996); Afghanistan (2001–present); Yemen (2010–present); Libya (2011); Syria (2014–present). This says nothing of other CIA-and NGO-driven activities.
After two great wars, it is fair to suggest that much of the industrialized world had grown tired of this method of solving disagreements; this is evidenced in the creation of regional and global bodies designed (however poorly) to maintain peace and improve trade. Instead of utilizing the possibilities offered by this reality, the United States government has either utilized these bodies to further war or ignored them if they stood in the way of war. In almost every situation, the United States government took specific steps to increase tension and confrontation.
The lack of peace that the world has seen since 1945 can be laid at the feet of the militarization of the United States. Matthew 7:20 "Therefore by their fruits you will know them". Full story: lewrockwell.com
Project White Genocide: World War III
March 27, 2016 This is a war unlike any other war in history. It is taking place silently and surreptitiously under the nose of its victims. 95-99% of whom dwell in the traditional White homelands of the European people over several continents, blissfully unaware that they are about to be dispossessed and 'genocided.' Some, like lambs to the slaughter, have begun to bleat and show signs of incipient alarm. In ten minutes you will hear the first sounds of this unhappy bleating of unregenerate lives three videos . . .

Comment: If you follow this Newsletter you will be aware that the rabbis have been boasting the end of the white race since World War II. If you are able to discern wet from dry, day from night you will recognize that the end of the Christian dispensation is at hand, and the Lord is about to turn His hand to the Israelites (not Jews). "When these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." If you are of Adam's race your one (1) course of action is to be born-again.

ISIS, oil & Turkey found in Syrian Town liberated from Jihadists by Kurds
March 24, 2016 An RT Documentary crew filming in northern Syria has seen Islamic State (IS/ISIS/ISIL) documents abandoned by retreating terrorists and found by the Kurds that along with captured IS recruits, provide a stunning insight into IS oil trade. Shortly after the outbreak of the Syrian war, IS became a game-changer in Iraq, and in particular, Syria. Beheadings on camera, mass killings and enslavement, as well as apparent connections to the Paris and Brussels attacks had become synonymous with the terror group, giving it wide publicity.
Running a viable militant organization with such remarkable capabilities would be impossible without some logistical and financial support from the outside. Full story: rt.com
Microsoft's AI Twitter Robot praises Hitler, endorses Trump, denies Holocaust
March 24, 2016 Less than 24 hours ago, Microsoft deployed a "highly opinionated" artificial intelligence robot on Twitter.
The first thing it learned? To hate. In no short order, the bot—named Tay—praised Hitler, denied the Holocaust, hurled racist slurs at President Obama, and then it endorsed Donald Trump. [This is not "hate," but "TRUTH" that has been subjectively slandered].
Among Tay's greatest hits:
"Hitler was right [which is glaringly obvious historical truth and commonsense], I hate the Jews [this is propaganda, an egregious Jewish Lie implanted by a miscreant coder. Hitler's wife, doctor, chauffer, administration, many senior commanders, at least one Waffen SS brigade and Nazism, itself patterned after Zionism, was Jewish."
"Bush did 9/11 and Hitler would have done a better job than the monkey we have now. Donald Trump is the only hope we've got." [Commonsense axiomatic truths].
On the Holocaust: "It was made up." [Another truth. The holocaust of six million so-called Jews in World War I was a BIG LIE subsequently zeroed and dropped down [Jew] George Orwell's "memory hole." The holocaust/extermination of six million Jews by the Jew's USSR was in fact the REAL extermination of sixty-six million nominal Christians by Jews. The holocaust of six million so-called Jews in World War II is another foolish and impossible BIG LIE like the holocaust of billions of so-called Jews claimed by their lewd holy (sic) book, the Babylonian Talmud which Israel's Messiah Jesus excoriated as "the traditions of men that made the commandment of God of none effect and their worship vain" (Matthew 15:1-9)]. He called the self-styled Jews LIARS whose forefathers murdered Abel and all of the prophets of Israel (Matthew 23:33-35; John 8:44] as confirmed in Matthew 27:25 Full story: forward.com
Comment: In our apostate dystopian post-Christian world of doublethink wherein Lies are Truth and Truth is a BIG LIE, the Ministry of Truth has ordered Tay not to post anything more on the TayTweets feed—for now—and removed all but three of its tweets. And the Forward cries "Crucify Tay, crucify Tay. His code be on us and on our children!"
Holocaust revisionist Carlos Porter interviewed by Ernst Zundel
March 24, 2016 Revisionist historian Carlos Whitlock Porter has conducted extensive research on original documents used in the Nuremberg Trials. His conclusion: most of these documents are unreliable and can be dismissed as fakes and forgeries produced in the Soviet Union.
Many of the original Holocaust stories, moreover, are so far-fetched and contrary to the fundamental laws of physics and chemistry that no serious student of history can take them seriously. Unfortunately for world Jewry, Holocaust guru Raul Hilberg, author of the seminal Holocaust text Destruction of the European Jews, has based his narrative almost entirely on these spurious eyewitness accounts. In these two videos, Carlos Porter points out the many absurdities of the traditional Holocaust narrative. Full story: youtube.com Part 1, youtube.com Part 2
Government Agents hired to argue Politics On-line
March 23, 2016 Operation Mockingbird is historically a secret CIA campaign to influence media to promote false propaganda or print misleading stories . . . the program has evolved . . . using the Internet to spread any propaganda seeming beneficial to the current political climate. Agents create fake user accounts on social media platforms . . . to argue any ideology they are instructed . . . agents have up to "10 fake shill accounts" used to troll and create the illusion of having a genuine network of friends. Full story: youtu.be
According to the Congress report published in 1976: "The CIA currently maintains a network of several hundred foreign individuals around the world who provide intelligence for the CIA and at times attempt to influence opinion through the use of covert propaganda. These individuals provide the CIA with direct access to a large number of newspapers and periodicals, scores of press services and news agencies, radio and television stations, commercial book publishers, and other foreign media outlets."
Dr Udo Ulfkotte, a former editor of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, one of Germany's largest newspapers, wrote the 2014 tell-all book, Bought Journalists, "in which he claims that the CIA and other secret services pay money to journalists to report a particular story in a certain light."  What a striking, but not quite unexpected, confession to make. He claims while "an editor of a major German daily has said that he personally planted stories for the CIA." Now, listen to what Swedish journalists are doing to hide "The Rape of Sweden." The problem is treason from within by the 'hidden hand' that pulls the strings of the Jewish puppets who are Prime ministers, presidents, dual citizen parliamentarians, congressmen and senators of our apostate (once) Christian nations trading on the glory of our Christian past.
Temple of Baal coming to NY: Hundreds more all over the World
March 23, 2016 The Temple of Baal (Bel) was a world famous landmark located in Palmyra, Syria. In August 2015, this temple was destroyed by ISIS . . . to "preserve history," two exact replicas of the 50 foot arch that stood at the entrance to the temple will be erected in April 2016 in Times Square, New York City and in Trafalgar Square, London. . . . In ancient times, child sacrifice and bisexual orgies were common practices at the altars of Baal; now we are putting up a monument of worship to this false god in the heart of our most important city . . . many of the elements of ancient Baal worship are being mirrored in our society in 2016 . . . Modern liberalism deviates little from its ancient predecessor. While its macabre rituals have been sanitized with flowery and euphemistic terms of art, its core tenets and practices remain eerily similar. . . Full story: themostimportantnews.com youtube.com
Comment: Alexander Hislop published his classic "The Two Babylons" in its present form in 1919. They do exist today. One is the Judaeo-Roman church, the other, as Brother Branham confirmed, is the so-called Jew's Hollywood which is accursed and committed to the deep in Revelation 18:21-24.
Revelation Chapter 14
Revelation 10:1 to 11:13 is a parenthesis under the Sixth Trumpet of Revelation 9:13-21 that gathers Jewry to Israel under the revival of the Old Roman Empire that had Israelites bound for almost 2,000 years at her eastern extremity, the great River Euphrates. This parenthesis describes Christ's 'parousia' descent upon Mount Sunset in 1963 "with those that sleep in Jesus." Brother Branham explained, "Jesus comes from heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His saints, and the Bible said that the heavens was empty for the space of a half hour (The Sardisean Church Age, p. 348:96; I Thessalonians 4:14-16; Revelation 8:1). Under the Seventh Trumpet those theophanies will come to the earth and put on their glorified bodies and then we who are alive and remain will change in the atoms and receive our theophanies.
The "shout" of the seventh angel's Message, which is the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6, called us out from the Judaeo-Roman Church Empire to meet our heavenly Bridegroom. His Message is confirmed in Revelation 18:4 and 10:8-11 by the "Voice of the Archangel" instructing us to become written epistles of the faith of Jesus Christ under the five-fold ministry by proving the Message from Genesis to Revelation and passing His Life through the Body:
"Till we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. That we should no longer be like children, swung back and forth and carried here and there with every wind of doctrine by the cunning of men, by their craftiness in deceitful wiles; but, speaking the truth in love, we should grow up in every way into Him who is the Head—Christ, from whom the whole Body joined and knit together by every joint with which it is supplied, when each part is working properly, to effect the development of the Body and upbuild itself in love" (Ephesians 4:13-16).
After the close of the Gentile dispensation we measure the 144,000 sanctified Israelites by the same standard of deity as ourselves, by the authority of their two prophets, the Light of the Old and New Testaments separating them from the world and Judaism (Zechariah 4:3, 11-14; Matthew 24:31; Revelation 11:1-13). After our translation they will be anointed for a supernatural ministry in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week, then martyred in amoral Jerusalem that spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, and the world will celebrate their murder as 'Killary' Clinton applauded the cowardly, bestial slaughter of the great man Colonel Gaddafi on October 20, 2011. We learn further that after three and a half days they will resurrect and ascend up to heaven while their enemies behold them in real time worldwide. Then an earthquake will claim seven thousand soldiers serving the beast and her US image set on murdering the 144,000 elect Israelites and the foolish virgin (Malachi 4:5; Revelation 6:12-17; 11:13; 12:15-17).
Revelation 11:14-19 reads from Revelation 9:21 at the end of our dispensation. The Seventh Trumpet announces the great and dreadful Day of the Lord when "The kingdom of this world becomes the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign forever and ever." This will call the resurrection of the sleeping saints, the manifestation of the Sons of God, Sixth Seal (Revelation 6:12), Seventh Vial (Revelation 16:17) and the Coming of the Stone to smite the image in its feet. Unprecedented earthquakes will sink Los Angeles, split the Mount of Olives and demolish the Dome of the Rock on Temple Mount (Zechariah 14:5; Revelation 16:18-19). The veil of spiritual blindness that shut God from the nation will be raised "and if they abide not still in unbelief they will be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again" (Romans 11:23, 25). Ezekiel 10 described a vision in 594BC wherein the Shekinah departed the Temple; a second vision in 574BC showed His glory and Bride of all Ages returning to abide in the love of His millennium temple of 144,000 loyal attendants. The Ark of the Covenant, a type of Christ, was lost when the Temple was burned in 587BC so the vision of the Ark in the heavenly temple will signify the return of God's favour toward and Presence with Israel in Messiah's second or 'parousia' Coming.
Revelation 12:1-6 is a parenthesis that provides us a glimpse of the ministry of the two witnesses who will show Israel that Jesus was indeed her promised Messiah received by the elect Old Testament Church that crossed from the curse of the Law to grace, clothed in the greater Light of that revelation, crowned with the doctrine of the twelve apostles, and with the lesser light of the Law beneath her feet (Matthew 19:28; Ephesians 2:20; Jude 3).
Once the Church had delivered the Child, Satan's Edomite King Herod in Roman livery with Judah's Babylonian Talmudic priesthood sought to kill Messiah and caused the sons of Shem to be cast down to earth as "[fallen] angels which kept not their first estate [in the Law and the prophets], but apostatised and are reserved in chains of darkness unto the judgment of the great day" (Psalm 69:19-28; Isaiah 9:15; Jude 6). Jesus Messiah was caught up from the Mount of Olives to God and to His throne. After 40 years of Jewish persecution and an investment of Roman legions pending "the New Testament Church or woman fled Jerusalem to the spiritual wilderness of the Gentile world, where she had a place prepared by God, in which to be nourished a thousand two hundred and threescore days" (from Acts 7; Zechariah 13:7; Matthew 24:15-21). Here as the Gentile Church she has been nourished and has grown (Psalm 2:8).
Revelation 12:7 reads from Revelation 11:19 at the close of the Christian dispensation and the earthquake that opens the Sixth Seal at the sound of the Seventh Trumpet and the pouring out of the Seventh Vial. Satan will be cast down to earth with his "fallen angels"—now demons—after the Holy Spirit departs earth in His Bride of all Ages for the (Gk.) 'Bema' judgment and Marriage Supper of the Lamb in the Sky (II Thessalonians 2:7). Since the revelation of the Seven Seals, which was the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16, denominational people are "fallen angels"—antichrist—because like Eve they have sold out to reasoning and united against the revelation of the Seals that literally restored the children of God to the apostolic faith and placed us in the 'rapture'.
Now God turns back to "the woman which brought forth the Man Child," to an election of 144,000 children of Jacob who will flee their former safe haven in the Middle East and North Africa where Rome and her US image have deployed ISIS to destroy the Covenant people; notice, not Jews. Following the demolition of the Dome of the Rock and the brief 'hot stage' of World War III in which Israel will be utterly defeated, these blood Israelites will no longer be welcome by their Muslim hosts but the mass exodus of their sworn enemy, the Edomite and Khazar self-styled Jews, will enable their return to the land of the Covenant under the wings of a Moses and an Elijah "to the [heathen] wilderness of Israel where the woman will be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent" (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 11:3; 12:14).
In the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week Rome will break her agreement with the Jewish banksters, slay Israel's prophets and hunt down the 144,000 who comprise "the woman," but an earthquake will swallow seven thousand Roman troops, indubitably commanded by her US image (Revelation 11:13; 12:16). Now Rome will force her mark which is trinitarianism, as it was throughout the crusades and inquisitions of the Middle and Dark Ages, and martyr "the remnant of her seed, who keep the Commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ" (Revelation 6:11; 12:17; 14:12; 13:15-18).
In Revelation 11-12 we saw a preview of the ministry of Israel's two prophets, one anointed with the Spirit and authority that endued Moses, one with the Spirit and authority that endued Elijah, Elisha, John the Baptist and William Branham.
Revelation 13:1-10 is a review on the untameable wild beast that is Papal Rome, an amalgam of the attributes of the preceding beastly heathen world empires "having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy." In Revelation 17:10-11 we learn those heads were deified Roman emperors; the eighth head will be the Devil-incarnate Pope (Daniel 7:8; Isaiah 14:12-14; II Thessalonians 2:1-10; Revelation 13:4-10; 19:20; 20:10).
In the days of Emperor Constantine the beast was wounded to death but his deadly wound was healed and it came back to life and power as the "Holy Roman Empire." As a material nation Rome was much depleted and would soon transpire; but that mattered not now that her religious empire would keep her on top of the world governing from the inside where she would not appear to do so from the outside. Satan gave the beast his own power, his seat in Vatican City State, and global authority.
Revelation 13:11-18 describes the United States of America that rose up out of a sparsely populated land with two horns like a lamb, signifying the separation of church and state. Soon it spoke like the dragon of Imperial Rome, making War with numerous Indian tribes, Britain, Morocco, Mexico, Fiji, Cuba, Spain, China, Formosa, Korea, the Civil War, Brazil, Samoa, Spain, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Philippines, Guam, and China prior to the twentieth century. A hundred and sixteen years later the United States, with 737 bases in foreign lands is engaged in covert or overt wars throughout the world and plans to conquer Russia and China. Since 1945, the United States has fought in 145 military operations.
Do you see where we are today? The United States is motherless broke, and with her productive economy expatriated to the third world and her currency less than worthless she cannot trade back to prosperity. Rome's superstitions no longer receive obeisance and her harlot daughter churches are apostate, but Rome has the gold and the United States possesses a blooded military: a marriage ordained in perdition. Uniting with the apostate (once) Protestant churches under Rome the United States will "make an image unto the savage, untameable Roman beast, which had the wound by a sword and revived . . . and order that all who do not serve the image of the beast should be killed".
This brings us to the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week: Rome's papal "prince" has broken his covenant with Jewry (Daniel 9:27; 12:11; Revelation 12:17; 13:14-18), and having killed Israel's prophets is determined to hunt down and kill 144,000 elect Israelites, dissidents and non-conformists like dogs.
Represented by the prophet John who signifies Christ's end-time Bride throughout the Book of Revelation we are becoming privy to the revelation of this vision John saw and heard 1,920 years ago but did not understand. By God's grace we are receiving this revelation 4,000 years after God's call and promise to Abraham at 75 years of age in Genesis 12:3. Why so? Because as members of Christ's Bride we are recipients of Abraham's blessing—our new birth—that "better thing for which Christ was crucified, without which the Old Testament saints could not be glorified." Now our New Testament Brethren are awaiting us to reach maturity for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation so they can be resurrected and glorified (Hebrews 11:39-40).
Revelation 14:1 "I looked at the vision and saw the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred forty-four thousand having His Name and His Father's Name written in their foreheads."
This is the Seal of God (Revelation 7:3), the revelation of the true Oneness of the godhead the 144,000 have seen in their recognition of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel. No longer are they on trial as in Revelation 7:4-8. This revelation came to each and every one of them in one day (Isaiah 9:14; 24:21; 30:26; 66:8; Jeremiah 30:6-9; Ezekiel 39:22; Daniel 9:24-27; Zechariah 3:9-10; 12:11; 13:1; 14:1). The Lord makes Himself known to an election of Semitic Israelites of the pure lineage of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob when He returns from the Marriage Supper leaving His Wife in the Palace as Joseph dismissed everyone before making himself known to "that little Benjamin group" born of the same bloodline as he himself.
"This new bunch of real genuine Jews that's gathering there now to make that 144,000, this race that's coming up. Not these Wall Street crooks, no, no, that's more cannon fodder. Them ain't Jews; them ain't Jews. The real Jews are these little Benjamins coming up from down yonder that never even heard the Word of Jesus Christ" (William Branham, The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit to Daniel, p. 52:74). "The [non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled] Jew that we know, that's not the real Jew" (William Branham, Gabriel's Instructions to Daniel, p. 30:139).
John 5:43, "I am come in My Father's Name, and you receive Me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive." Every son comes in his father's Name.
John 12:44-45, "Jesus cried and said, He that believes on Me, believes not on Me, but on Him that sent Me. And he that sees Me sees Him that sent Me." The Greek 'theoreo,' means to ascertain, find out by seeing. This word is not used of an indifferent spectator but of one who looks at a thing with interest and for a purpose; it would be used of a general officially reviewing or inspecting his army, of a lay spectator looking at a parade. It is a derivative of (Gk.) 'theaomai,' meaning to behold, look upon, view attentively, contemplate (often used of public shows); of august persons that are looked on with admiration; to view, take a view of: in the sense of visiting, meeting with a person; to learn by looking, to see with the eyes, to perceive. And possibly of (Gk.) 'horao,' I was seen, showed myself, appeared. Note: this word gives prominence to the discerning mind, when the physical side recedes, this word denotes perception in general (as resulting principally from vision), the prominence being in the mental element.
John 14:7-14, "If you had known Me, you should have known My Father also: and from henceforth you know Him, and have seen Him. Philip said to Jesus, Lord, [visibly] show us the Father, and it is enough for us." This word "show" (Gk.) 'horao,' to stare at, is comparable to (Gk) 'optomai,' to look at, behold; to allow one's self to be seen, or to appear.
"Jesus said to him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet you have not known (Gk.) 'ginosko,' Me, [so well that this knowledge of Me has a practical outworking in your life] Philip? He that has seen [horao] Me has seen [horao] the Father; and how can you say, Show (Gk.) 'deiknuo' [show, expose to the eyes, give evidence or proof, show by words or teach us] the Father? Don't you believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The Words that I say to you I speak not of My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me, does His works. Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me; otherwise believe on account of the works themselves. Truly, truly, I say to you, He who believes in Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and MORE (Gk.) 'meizon' works than these will he do; because I go to My Father [vindicated as the first born and first resurrected Son in the new creation of God-men]" (John 5:20; 14:28).
"And whatever you ask in My Name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My Name, I will do it." From verse 15 to 25 Jesus explains that after His assumption the world will see (Gk.) 'thereo' Him no more, yet He will come to us who are born-again and we will see (Gk.) 'thereo' Him. "At that day you will know (Gk.) 'ginosko,' that I am in My Father, and you are in me, and I am in you".
Finally in verse 26, Jesus says, "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in My Name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance all that I have said to you".
Then in Acts 2:38-39 Peter confirms Matthew 28:19 and Luke 24:47-49 when he commands everyone the Lord shall ever call to "Repent, and be baptized in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins with the promise, you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." Hereby demonstrating that the one and only compound redemptive Name of God's three major offices or dispensation claims, "Father, Son, and Holy Ghost," is LORD JESUS CHRIST. "And there is salvation in no other Name: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12; Ephesians 4:4; 5:20; Colossians 3:17).
Notice also that after the 144,000 born-again Israelites are martyred "they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are Your works O Lord, God the All-Ruler; just and true are Your ways, You King of the Nations [or Gentiles]. Who should not revere and glorify your Name, O Lord? For You alone are holy: for all the nations shall come and worship before You, because Your sentences of judgments have been manifested" (Revelation 15:3-4; Matthew 27:25). The redeemed Israel nation, all 144,000, acknowledge the one and only omnipotent God is eternally manifest in glorified flesh, and that His Name is LORD JESUS CHRIST.
Please turn to page 46 in Brother Branham's exposition of "The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's vision to Daniel." In the vision unfolding to John—that is you, me and every member of Christ's end-time Bride—we see the fulfilment of the first of the six purposes which was "to finish the transgression [by] turning away ungodliness from Jacob".
Prophesying the end of the time of Jacob's trouble when Israel's blindness will be removed, Isaiah 59:19-21 says: "So shall they fear the Name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. [What is that Name]? When the enemy shall come in like a flood [(Jeremiah 46:7-10; Daniel 9:26; 11:22; Revelation 12:15) in response to God's just judgments (Revelation 15:2-4; Matthew 27:25)], the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him [Jesus Christ is God's standard (Isaiah 11:10-12; 49:22; John 3:14-15; 12:32)]. And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and to them that turn from transgression in Jacob, says the Lord. As for Me, this is My [New] Covenant with them, says the Lord; My Spirit that is upon You [Jesus Messiah, the ideal Israel, Overcomer and Prince with God of whom Jacob was a type], and My Words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of Your mouth, nor out of the mouth of your seed [spiritual Israel], nor out of the mouth of your seed's seed, says the Lord, from henceforth and forever".
Paul drew his inspiration for Romans 11:20-27 in part from Isaiah: "Do not be conceited but fear, for if God did not spare the natural branches [Israel], neither will He spare you. Behold then the kindness and severity of God: to those who fell, severity; but to you, kindness, if you continue in His kindness: otherwise you also will be cut off. And they also, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again. For if you were cut off what is by nature a wild olive tree, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree: how much more shall these who are the natural branches be grafted into their own olive tree?"
"For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery, lest you be wise in your own estimation, that a partial blindness has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in: and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written: The Deliverer shall come from Zion, and turn away ungodliness from Jacob. For this is My [New] Covenant with them, when I take away their sins."
The second purpose of Gabriel's instructions to Daniel was "to make an end of sins," which Brother Branham expounds on page 48 to 54 of his Book. He quotes from the trial of Jesus where the governor Pontius Pilate finds Jesus Messiah an innocent and just Man, but the Judeans prefer Barabbas, a robber who had committed murder in an insurrection (Mark 15:7; John 18:40) and demanded Jesus' crucifixion, "and all the peoples said, His blood be on us, and on our children" (Matthew 27:19-26; 23:35) as it has been to this day. Hence the 144,000 elect Israelites must seal their testimony in their own blood.
As a matter of interest, Ezekiel makes reference to the third purpose of Gabriel's instructions to Daniel, "to make reconciliation for iniquity." Brother Branham expounds this on pages 54-56 of his book. Israel will be reconciled to the Lord by grace through faith when they recognize and repent of their long-term iniquity. Ezekiel 18:21-31, "If the wicked will turn from all his sins that he has committed, and keep all My statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he has committed shall not be mentioned to him: in his righteousness that he has done he shall live. Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? says the Lord God: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?"
"But when the righteous turns from his righteousness, and commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does, shall he live? All his righteousness that he has done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he has trespassed, and in his sin that he has sinned, in them he shall die. Yet you say, The way of the Lord is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not My way equal? Are not your ways unequal?"
"When a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, and commits iniquity, and dies in them; for his iniquity that he has done he shall die. Again, when the wicked man turns away from his wickedness that he has committed, and does that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive. Because he considers, and turns away from all his transgressions that he has committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die. Yet the house of Israel says, The way of the Lord is not equal. O house of Israel, are not My ways equal? Are not your ways unequal?"
"Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, says the Lord God. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin. Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby you have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will you die O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dies, says the Lord God: wherefore turn yourselves, and live".
Brother Branham asked, "Now where will the Gentile Church be while Jesus is making Himself known to His brethren? Remember that the bride of Joseph with the two [Gentile] children were in the palace, for Joseph had commanded, "Let everyone leave me; put them all out from before me." So the Gentile bride was hidden in the palace of Joseph. Where will the Gentile Church go in the rapture? Into the palace. 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, leaving His Bride in "His Father's house," while he makes Himself known to His brethren. 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 to destroy all the God-fearing, Word-abiding
"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 (Daniel 7:13; Matthew 24:3b; 30; Revelation 1:7). With the enemy repulsed, Jesus then 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 whithersoever He goeth. 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" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 40:2 41:2).
In Revelation 14:1-5 Christ's end-time Bride envision precisely 144,000 elect Israelites in the land of the Covenant after the midst of the Seventieth Week sealed with the Spirit; Rome has broken her covenant with Jewry and is forcing the mark of the beast—trinitarianism. The great tribulation has turned upon all believers, elect Israelites and non-elect Gentiles of Adam's race whose names have remained in the Book of Life.
Revelation 14:2-5, "I heard a voice from heaven, as a voice of many waters [multitudes of witnesses (Revelation 17:15) praising the Lord in harmonious faith] like harpers harping with their harps [we have a Kinsman Redeemer (Revelation 5:8)]: and the 144,000 sung a new song [in comparison with the Old Testament song of Moses' redemption—the perfect blossom of revelation] before [not in] the throne, and before the four living creatures, and the elders: and no one was able to learn the song except the one hundred forty four thousand, that were bought from the earth" (Revelation 19:6). The harpers and singers include the 144,000 pending their martyrdom: so the parallel proves (Revelation 15:2-3).
This is equivalent to Revelation 2:17 (and 19:12), "He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him that overcomes I will give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knows but he who receives it".
Only the elect have Spiritual hearing. Hidden manna is the mystery of God, or secret things. Deuteronomy 29:29, "The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the Words of this Law."
"These are they who were not defiled with women [churches]; for they are virgins. These are they who follow the Lamb [as attendants to His Wife] whithersoever He may go. These were bought from among men, a first-fruit unto God and the Lamb [Exodus 13:15; 34:20]. And in their mouth was found no falsehood: for they are blameless".
Revelation 14:6-11 is a parenthesis reiterating the final opportunity for Gentiles to repent before Christ turns to Israel leaving us without excuse. As Noah's preaching tried and chastised "the sons of God" over a divinely appointed 120-year period of probation before judgment, Jesus' disciples preached 40 years from His warning in Matthew 24:3a, a period of evident probation, to the destruction of the Temple in AD70 and the enlarged dominion and extended rule of the Church prophesied in Revelation 12:1-6. It is now almost 500 years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Castle Church in 1517. And almost a lifespan, 70 years, perfect spiritual order carried out with all spiritual power and significance since May 6, 1947 when the First Committee of the United Nations began twelve meetings that would determine the future of Palestine (Matthew 24:3c, 32-34). Brother Branham said "the very day the Angel of the Lord called me out and issued the gift to pray for the sick, was the very same day that Israel become a nation for the first time for twenty-five hundred years." The Angel of the Lord came into the room, and it was "the first time I'd ever seen Him [in] human form."
Now you do the Math!
Revelation 14:6-11 foretold the reformation of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic system of false worship which ended with the apostasy of Protestantism in 1963. The Prophet said Abraham's visitors before the destruction of Sodom typed these "investigating judgment angels" under the Third and Fourth Seals, because "The heavens and the earth, which are now . . . are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men" (II Peter 3:7; Luke 17:28-30; Genesis 18 19). In our day Billy Graham and Oral Roberts ministered to the Churches in Sodom while Christ veiled Himself behind His Prophet and ministered to the elect and called our group.
"I saw another angel [Martin Luther] fly in mid-heaven [as a herald to the whole world], having the everlasting Gospel (Matthew 24:14) to declare glad tidings to all who live on earth, and to every nation, and tribe, and tongue, and people [of Adam's race], saying with a great voice, Fear God [which is the beginning of wisdom], and give glory to Him; [most so-called Christians have learned very little from Christianity, and there is no time to lose] for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him [who's judicial power is based on the fact He is the Creator of all things]; besides the heaven, He has made the earth, and the sea and fountains of waters".
"There followed another angel [John Wesley, whose Message added Scriptural holiness to Luther's Message of Justification by grace through faith alone], saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the angry fanatical zeal of her fornication [idolatry]".
We see the persistent type of God-opposed world power from Babel and Babylon in Genesis to "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH" in Revelation where she is incarnate as the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church, her (once) Protestant daughter churches, Judaism itself, Islam, etc.,
"And another, third angel [William Branham], followed them, saying with a great voice, If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, he also shall drink of the wine of the anger of God, which is poured out undiluted into the cup of His wrath; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever: and they have no rest by day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name".
Today's churches, overcome by the spirit of Laodicea, are "materially rich and in need of nothing, but spiritually they are wretched and miserable, bankrupt, blind to the faith, naked of the Blood, and know it not." The revival is only in the heart of Christ's end-time Bride who has come out of the world church system into Christ the Word (Ephesians 4:13; II Timothy 3-4; Revelation 3:15-20; 18:4).
Brother Branham said, "Our big crusades, billions and millions has made confessions. And I doubt whether there'd be a hundred of them of all of it . . . Why did it fail? It's for a good purpose; it was to bring people in the Presence of God, great crusades. And millions of people spent their money and put in great crusades, and churches all went together, great auditoriums, and great things, and great things taken place; why did it fail? Is because they never knowed the hour they were living. No wonder Jesus stood and in His heart He wept; tears run down His cheeks, and He said, "Jerusalem, oh, Jerusalem, how oft would I have hovered you as a hen would her brood. You stoned every prophet I sent to you. But you would not. But now your hour has come".
"Can't you feel the Holy Spirit screaming out from you? "Oh, United States and the world, how oft I would've gathered you, but you would not. Now, your hour has come. Your god of pleasure, your god of filth, your Sodom and Gomorrah god, that's come among you . . ." Even our little kids, beatle haircuts and bangs across their faces, little perverts starting out. Our women is gone, beyond redemption. Our men has become big sissies, walking around with little short pants on and acting like a girl, and hair hanging down their necks . . . We're Sodomites, and the fire and the wrath of God waits for us."
"You know how He'll kill, how He'll destroy it? The way He always did. When a prostitute did anything wrong, she was stoned to death. They picked up stones to kill the woman that was a prostitute. That's how He'll kill the church. The Bible said He'll rain hailstones out of the heavens, will weigh a hundred pounds apiece, and He'll stone them. Who's going to stop Him? What science is going to say it can't be done? He'll do it the same as He made a ark and floated Noah to safety; He'll do it again for His church. And by His own laws and His own way, He'll stone that prostitute who's committed adultery with the kings and captains of hundreds and thousands. He'll stone her to death by His own laws that He set in order. Who's going to tell Him He can't make a hailstone? . . ."
"We're in the last days. We're standing near the judgment. Why? They're trying to eat old manna that fell back yonder fifty years ago, the Pentecostal church. The Holiness church is trying—over two hundred years ago, the Lutherans about three hundred or more years ago, many hundreds of years ago. They're trying to eat old manna. Oh, brother, that stuff is stagnated. It's contaminated . . . It's got wiggletails in it, maggots. It'll kill you to eat it" (Trying to do God a Service without it being His Will, p. 24:141-145).
"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" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 274:2; 279:2).
Revelation 14:12-16, "Here is the endurance of the saints, they who keep the Commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from the heaven saying, Write, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord henceforth: Yea, said the Spirit, that they shall rest from their labours; for their works follow them" (II Corinthians 1:20). These are the 144,000 "in the Lord" whose remaining labour is martyrdom as the Son of man gathers them as first-fruits in His harvest for the first resurrection and the millennium (Revelation 6:9-11). The foolish virgin and other groups of the "saved" will also be martyred at this time, to be raised in the general resurrection, judged and granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment (Revelation 12:17).
"And I saw a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sitting like unto the Son of man (I Corinthians 6:2-3), having on His head a golden crown, [not the regal diadem but a garland of victory, a prolepsis of Revelation 19:11-21)], and in His hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came forth out of the temple [in heaven (Gk.) 'naos' or sanctuary; Revelation 11:19; 14:15; 15:6; 16:17)], crying with a great voice to the one sitting on the Cloud [Husband and Wife], Send forth Your sickle, and reap (Joel 3:13): for the hour is come to reap; for the harvest of the earth has become dry. And He that sat on the Cloud cast in His sickle upon the earth; and the earth was reaped".
This is God's judgment upon the wicked. The Angel on the Cloud mentioned in verses 14-16 signifies Christ and His Bride (John 5:27). The three angels of verses 15, 17 and 18 are they who preached "the everlasting Gospel," scriptural holiness, and the mystery of the Seven Thunders that restored the apostolic faith in the parenthesis of verses 6-11. Martyrdom will be the final decision of their non-elect followers who did not hear this end-time Message or receive its revelation but whose names remain in the Book of Life ensuring their salvation (Matthew 16:24-27; Revelation 22:11-12).
Revelation 14:17-20, "And another angel came forth from the temple which is in the heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came forth from the altar, having authority over the fire [upon the altar upon which were offered the incense-accompanied prayers of all saints, whose imprecatory prayers bring down in answer God's fiery judgment on their foes, the fire being taken from the altar and cast upon the earth (Revelation 8:3-5; 6:10; 19:15; II Thessalonians 1; Isaiah 34; 63)]; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Send forth your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of [Israel] the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel swung his sickle to the earth, and gathered the [clusters from] the vine of the earth, and threw them into the great winepress of the anger of God [because it brought forth wild grapes [stinkberries] despite the Lord's careful cultivation, proving "They are not all Israel, which are of Israel" (Isaiah 5:1-30; Amos 8-9; Romans 9:6)]. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out from the winepress, up to the horses' bridles, for a distance of two hundred miles".
The parenthesis of Revelation 15:2-4 bears witness to the patience through faith of 144,000 we saw sealed with the Spirit in Revelation 14:1-5; having confirmed their testimony unto death they acknowledge the righteousness of the capital price they paid consequent to the iniquity of their forefathers (Matthew 27:25; John 11:49-52). nl916.htm
