This evening we will be speaking of the end-time, of Israel and of Judaism, as it has affected the course of Western (i.e. Christian) history through the centuries. Our study will throw light on a struggle of which the multitude know nothing. There is a true Church, and there is a FALSE Christian church, but it is not generally known that there are true Jews and FALSE Jews. As genuine Christians are despised and rejected by the false, true Orthodox Israelites are not accepted by those which predominate in power and number who say they are Jews and are not.
Let us read Isaiah 11:10-16.
Isaiah 11:10-16: 'And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse.' When Christ first came to Israel He was described as a "'branch' growing out of Jesse's roots' (Isaiah 11:1). That Branch was cut off level to the ground as Daniel 9:27 foretold. But that root is putting forth another Branch in the end-time—'I shall restore saith the Lord...' Joel 2:25. This promise was fulfilled in the ministry of William Branham: 'That which is perfect is come' and is transforming itself or blossoming into the Bride Tree with the Fullness of the Branch, for the manifestation of the sons of God and the translation. Brother Branham said we're 'stump grafted, not in the vine grafted' (Doing God A Service, 4:31). The Holy Spirit will be waved again in the Bride.
'... which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and the place of His rest shall be glorious'.
Since He formed man, God has been seeking a place of rest. Numbers 10:33 tells us the Word of the Lord went before the children of Israel, 'to search out a resting place for them.' And in Psalm 132 :13-14, 'the Lord hath chosen Zion; and He hath desired it for His habitation. This is My rest forever: here will I dwell, for I have desired it'.
'Heaven is My throne and earth is My footstool: what house will ye build Me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of My rest'? (Isaiah 66:1; Acts 7:49).
The place of His rest is in Christ. The Bride is IN Christ, and He is in the heart of His Bride ... John 14:20. This is where He is welcome and where He abides. The Bride are the 'daughters of Zion' who will live and reign with Christ in Mount Zion.
'His dwelling shall be glory and His rest glorious.' Jesus said in John 17:22-23, 'the glory which Thou gavest Me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them and Thou in Me, that they might be made perfect in one ...' Or as He said in Matthew 28:20, 'I am with you alway, even unto the end of the Age'.
All God was He poured into Christ; all Christ was He poured into the Bride. As Christ is the image and glory of God, so the Bride is the image and glory of Christ. That's the place of God's rest.
'THAT day' speaks of THIS day in which Christ is to be revealed in His end-time Bride after the end of the Gentile Dispensation:-
Isaiah 11:11-12: 'And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And He shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth'.
This is the gathering of Israel for the sounding of the Seven Trumpet Messages of the 'Moses' and 'Elijah' who will visit Israel in Daniel's seventieth week. The Tribes were divided following the death of Solomon, Israel was taken captive by Sargon of Assyria in 721BC, and eventually all Tribes were dispersed to the four cardinal points. Since the First World War however, Jews have been moving to the Land with small numbers from the House of Israel and the House of Judah, but after the Seventh Trumpet the true tribespeople will return "together out of the land of the north" (Jeremiah 3:18) for the Message which God will send when there is a complete union of the Tribes (amid the mixed multitude), although no one knows to which Tribe he belongs.
Assyria and Egypt were the two great powers in the time of Isaiah. First numbers from Judah were carried into Egypt in the reign of Rehoboam (II Chronicles 12:8); Israel was forcibly resettled in Assyria; and others doubtless accompanied Jehoaz when he was taken by Pharaoh Necho (II Chronicles 36:4), multitudes also fled there following Nebuchadnezzar's invasion (II Kings 25:26; Jeremiah 41: 16-17; 44:1) and the 'times of the Gentiles' issued in. Finally, they were scattered by the Roman Empire.
Notice whence Isaiah says Israel is gathered: Assyria - Iraq, from Lower Egypt, Pathros - Upper Egypt, Ethiopia, Persia - Iran, Babylonia, Hamath - Upper Syria, and countries bordering the Mediterranean.
It is noteworthy that Isaiah does not mention the Japhetic nations in Poland, Russia, or Germany, etc. No doubt God is gathering a remnant of the Tribes from Europe. But according to the Bible, NOT significant numbers!!! The huge influx of Jews from Eastern Europe to Palestine are NOT acknowledged in Isaiah.
The majority of Israel remained in the Middle East where they live to this day, converts to Islam thirteen hundred years ago. Most of the so-called 'Jews' in the USA and Europe are a different racial group altogether.
Describing an article in Look Magazine, Brother Branham said, 'And I seen them bringing those Jews in ... coming down from Egypt, coming down from all over the world... Iran, Iraq...He said, "There's twelve tribes of Gad, twelve tribes of Aser, twelve tribes of Reuben ..." And where were they all standing? On Mount Sinai. Jews—back in the homeland. There they were. They were the ones that wasn't this Wall Street crooked bunch. No, sir! It was the REAL Jews'.
In Matthew 24:32-34, God said, when the Fig Tree puts forth buds you know it is harvest time, time to gather the Wheat Bride in the resurrection and smite the earth with a curse. Israel's restoration to the Land is the ensign or signal by which we Gentiles know redemption is nigh, and a prophet is in the West with the evening time Message of restoration for rest in the 'root of Jesse.' Brother Branham said "... The very hour, by the Pan American chart, that Israel was declared a nation for the first time for two thousand years since they'd been scattered, not a people, it was that very same hour, exactly to the hour, that the Angel of the Lord met me up yonder and sent me ... with the Gospel—the very same thing—May 7, 1946" (Daniel 35:150).
Oh, God can make all things work together for good to those who love Him. He is omnipotent, His thinking is infinite. He makes all things work together to praise Him, even the wrath of man. Someone who evilly entreats you can be used as a blessing as we see in the type where Judah sold his brother Joseph to the Ishmaelites. To this day Judah's nature has not changed, but God exalted Joseph as He exalted Christ to His right hand, and He will yet raise up 144,000 true Israelites whom the false Jew will sell-out and kill.
Isaiah 11:13-16: 'The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim. But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west.' Oh Israel will swoop down as an eagle from the height of the mountains that slope westward toward the coastal plain, upon the body of the Philistine people '... they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them (i.e. Jordan)'. Whenever henceforth any of these neighboring peoples attack Israel, Israel will respond in common. And so has it been since 1948, note the annexation of East Jerusalem.
'And the Lord shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea' where Moses crossed the Red Sea at the eastern tongue or Gulf of Aquaba, as we discussed recently and as Galatians 4:25 has it, not at the Gulf of Suez as portrayed on the map in our Bibles. '...and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod.' As the mighty Euphrates was divided into a multitude of canals, Isaiah infers that the Babylonian power should be divided in order that the Jewish captives might return to the Land, 'And there shall be an highway for the remnant of His people which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt'.
The last verses liken this redemption to the crossing wherein God parted the waters and made a highway through the Sea. Now He will remove all obstacles which might prevent the remnant from returning to the land by 'smiting' the barrier in Israel's northern border as once He parted the Red Sea. This is reinforced by the use of 'cherem,' in verse 15, to utterly destroy for the glory of God. God having willed the reunion, nothing shall prevent it.
As Israel of the first redemption sang songs of praise on the other side of the Red Sea (Exodus 15), so likewise true Israel of the second redemption, when restored to the Land. As the fathers drank water from the rock at Horeb (Exodus 17), and that Rock was Christ, with joy shall Israel draw water out of the wells of salvation.
Isaiah 12:1-6: 'And in that day thou shalt say, O Lord, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me. Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; He also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.
And in that day shall ye say, Praise the Lord, call upon His Name, declare His doings among the people, make mention that His Name is exalted. Sing unto the Lord; for He hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee'.
It has been that said much of the Reformation of the Roman Catholic system of worship was 'the wrath of man praising God.' And the restoration of Israel to the Land has been no less. Palestine was stolen from the Arabs through underhand political maneuvering, incredibly dishonest manipulation and corruption of men in high places. And are you aware the vast majority of those involved are not descended from the Tribe of Judah or Benjamin? Or from the other Ten Tribes. They are not Semitic, and no more descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob than was Goliath. Nor do they hold the Old Testament faith.
Yet God is working all things according to His Purpose, for those elect 144,000 who love and will come to know Him—12,000 from each of the Twelve tribes of Israel.
What did Brother Branham say? He said, '...that wasn't this Wall Street crooked bunch. No, sir! It was the REAL JEWS'.
Well, if there are 'Jews' and 'REAL JEWS', who are these different groups?
Firstly, we know that at the dispensation change 'REAL JEWS' will be those who have returned to the land of Israel. We have already learned from our studies in the Word that God only ever deals with Israel in the Promised Land. Outside the Land he is outside the Covenant of Promise. He can't even observe the sabbath. God deals with Israel as ONE NATION; all Israel will be born in one day, all 144,000 of them. Furthermore Israel rejected their Messiah because of the false theology of their denominations who rejected God's prophet John, the Elijah of Malachi 3. According to Daniel 2 and 9 and Romans 11:25, that nation is blind to the faith until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in. God does not deal with Israel and the Church at the same time.
If Israel is blinded until the close of the Gentile Dispensation when God opens their eyes through the Message of two prophets, who are the 'REAL JEWS' today? And how can they be distinguished from 'them which say they are Jews but are not, but are the synagogue of Satan' ?
To start with, we know they have been blind to Messiah, the Gospel Message and the manifestation of Christ in His mystical Body these past 2000 years. Indeed they only know the FALSE church of history books and tradition, NOT the little Flock' that has been persecuted to death by the FALSE church. And as they have been unable to develop Spiritually for 2,000 years, the 'REAL JEWS' must be back where their fathers left off; Orthodox Yahwists, trying to observe the Old Covenant of the Torah but without its sacrifices.
If they are truly observing Moses and the prophets, they will not be following the Babylonian Talmud whose codification commenced nearly 200 years after the death of Christ and was completed on December 2, AD499. Moses taught us that God ONLY speaks through His vindicated prophets (Exodus 20:18-19; Deuteronomy 18:16-18; II Peter 120-21). No prophet wrote the Talmud, which contradicts Moses and the prophets, common decency and the morals of human society.
One more point needs to be made concerning the 'REAL JEWS' who are returning to Palestine, and who will comprise the elect of Israel. God will only be dealing with the 12,000 from each of the Twelve Tribes. They will not be proselytes, but the blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Statistics quoted by Arthur Koestler in his book, 'The Thirteenth Tribe,' estimate the number of Sephardim in the 1960's at 500,000 world-wide (many of them Cannanites); on the other hand, the Ashkenazim or Japhetic self-styled Jew, were about 11 million. (And so says the 1993 Encyclopaedia Britannica).
Paul warned the Hebrews, 'NOW! To day, is the day of salvation' (Hebrews 4). Even to this hour, God's grace is extended to all of Adam's race whether descended from Shem, Ham, or Japheth. But once the dispensation changes he will be dealing exclusively with the children of Shem descended from Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
The Covenant and Promise of God is to 'Abraham and his seed' when as yet Abraham had no seed. And we learn from Galatians 3 the seed SINGULAR was Jesus Christ the Messiah; we become Abraham's seed and joint heirs with Christ by coming into Him through the baptism of the Holy Ghost or new birth.
Once the last elected Seed has been quickened, God turns in grace to Abraham's natural seed. NOT the Arabs, but those descendants of Jacob who became Israel, from whose blood line 144,000 'REAL JEWS' who have returned to Israel will receive the Spiritual Seed of Abraham which is new birth by the baptism of the Holy Ghost through the Message of those two prophets.
According to the 1973 Jewish Encyclopedia and A. N. Poliak, Professor of Medieval Jewish History at Tel Aviv University, the majority of Eastern European Jews are Khazar and (either Serpent's seed or) Japhetic in origin, not Semitic. Immigration statistics indicate approximately 90% of the world's so-called or self-styled 'Jews' living in 42 countries of the world today are emigrants or the children of parents who emigrated from eastern Europe. (According to The Jewish Encyclopaedia (1905) Vol. XI p 533, 'Probably 95% of the persons included in these estimates of Jewish populations are Ashkenazim'). For those among them who are in Adam's race, their day of salvation is now, under the Gentile dispensation.
The Land of Israel has been resettled by apostate Jews, most of those who are in Adam's race are NOT descended from Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob but from Japheth, through Gomer, Ashkenaz, Togarmah. Israel was settled for material gain by the communists and international bankers, who by devious means, control the United States and most if not all other governments. Very soon they will control the world through the NWO headed up by the Pope through the UN.
They 'used' Jews from Europe and the USA to emigrate, legally or illegally, so they could grab this land from its owners. The blood descendants of Israel living in Palestine from Bible days have been killed and persecuted by these apostate Zionists, along with their Arab neighbours with whom they dwelt in harmony for centuries. Sephardim and other non-Ashkenazim settlers are persecuted today on a par with the Palestinians.
These Zionists descended from the Khazars of Europe call themselves 'God's chosen people', but they are not 'REAL Jews;' not the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to whom the natural Covenant of Promise pertained:
'And I will establish My covenant between Me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God' (Genesis 17:7-8).
Largely of Turkish extraction, these people were never 'strangers' in Egypt or in Palestine but built an empire in the Caucasus. They converted to Judaism, which is Talmudism that developed from Pharisaism which withstood and crucified Jesus Christ. They adopted Judaism (which is the antithesis of the faith of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob) under the reign of King Bulan in AD740. This was not a Spiritual choice, but like Constantine's so-called conversion to Christianity four hundred years earlier, a political move to maintain his kingdom's independence from the Islamic Caliphate in the East, and the Holy Roman Empire in the West.
Let us read what the Jewish Encyclopedia Vol. IV, pages 1-5 says concerning the 'Chazars' (or Khazars):
'CHAZARS: A people of Turkish origin whose life and history are interwoven with THE VERY BEGINNINGS OF THE HISTORY OF THE JEWS OF RUSSIA—driven on by the nomadic tribes of the steppes and by THEIR OWN DESIRE FOR PLUNDER AND REVENGE ... In the second half of the sixth century the Chazars moved westward... The kingdom of the Chazars was firmly established in MOST OF SOUTH RUSSIA LONG BEFORE THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE RUSSIAN MONARCHY BY THE VARANGIAN (855). At this time the kingdom of the Chazars stood at the height of its power AND WAS CONSTANTLY AT WAR... At the end of the eighth century the chagan (king) of the Chazars and his grandees, TOGETHER WITH A LARGE NUMBER OF HIS HEATHEN PEOPLE, EMBRACED THE JEWISH RELIGION. The Jewish population in the entire domain of the Chazars, in the period between the seventh and tenth centuries, MUST HAVE BEEN CONSIDERABLE ... about THE NINTH CENTURY, IT APPEARS AS IF ALL THE CHAZARS WERE JEWS AND THAT THEY HAD BEEN CONVERTED TO JUDAISM ONLY A SHORT TIME BEFORE... It was one of the successors of Bulan named Obadiah, who regenerated the kingdom and STRENGTHENED THE JEWISH RELIGION. He invited Jewish scholars to settle in his dominions, and founded SYNAGOGUES AND SCHOOLS. The people were instructed in the Bible, Mishnah, and the TALMUD and in the "divine service of the hazzanim." In their writings the CHAZARS USED THE HEBREW LETTERS ... THE CHAZAR LANGUAGES PREDOMINATED ... Obadiah was succeeded by his son Isaac; Isaac by his son Moses (or Manasseh II); the latter by his son Nisi; and Nisi by his son Aaron II. King Joseph himself was a son of Aaron, AND ASCENDED THE THRONE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAW OF THE CHAZARS RELATING TO SUCCESSION... The king had twenty-five wives, all of royal blood, and sixty concubines, all famous beauties. Each one slept in a separate tent and was watched by a eunuch ... THIS SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN THE BEGINNING OF THE DOWNFALL OF THE CHAZAR KINGDOM. The Russian Varangians established themselves at Kiev ... until the final conquest of the Chazars by the Russians. After a hard fight the Russians conquered the Chazars... Four years later the Russians conquered all the Chazarian territory east of the Azov ... many members of the Chazarian royal family emigrated to Spain... Some went to Hungary, BUT THE GREAT MASS OF THE PEOPLE REMAINED IN THEIR NATIVE COUNTRY'.
The greatest historian on the origin and the history of the so-called or self-styled 'Jews' in eastern Europe was Professor H. Graetz, himself a so-called or self-styled 'Jew'. Professor Graetz points out in his famous 'History of the Jews' that when so-called Jews in other countries heard a rumor about so-called 'Jews' in the Khazar kingdom they believed these converted Khazars to be the 'lost ten tribes.' These rumors were no doubt responsible for the legend which grew up that Palestine was the 'homeland' of the converted Khazars. Page 141 states:
'The Chazars professed a coarse religion, which was combined with sensuality and lewdness ... After Obadia came a long series of Jewish Chagans (kings), for ACCORDING TO A FUNDAMENTAL LAW OF THE STATE ONLY JEWISH RULERS WERE PERMITTED TO ASCEND THE THRONE. For some time THE JEWS OF OTHER COUNTRIES HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE CONVERSION OF THIS POWERFUL KINGDOM TO JUDAISM, and when at last a vague rumor to this effect reached them, THEY WERE OF THE OPINION THAT CHAZARIA WAS PEOPLED BY THE REMNANT OF THE FORMER TEN TRIBES'.
These Khazars are mentioned in Ezekiel 27:13-14 and 38:6. It was their descendants who engineered two World Wars, the Korean and Vietnam wars, and profited from the Napoleonic and many European Wars.
Communism is another manifestation of these Khazar Jews. Communism was invented by the Jews, and the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 was their plot to destroy the Royal family of Russia and release themselves from restrictions of trade placed on them by the State and the church. Such also was their intent against Germany in the second World War. Brother Branham called Russia 'an ungodly nation who knows not God' (II Peter 3:7). The Communists closed down all Christian churches across Russia, turning them into factories or warehouses. The Party leaders who took over Russia were not Russian, but US citizens—Khazar Jews, from New York! This is why Brother Branham called Russia 'an ungodly nation who knows not God'.
Brother Branham warned in 1933: 'We will be in war with Germany. Watch Russia! Now, that's... Communism, Nazism, and Fascism. Watch Russia! But that is not the main one to watch ...
Listen THUS SAITH THE LORD. Repent. I predict three curtains. In the Name of the Lord, there's one called the Iron Curtain, which will be Russia. Watch Red China. That'll be the Bamboo Curtain. They're horrible, but watch that Purple Curtain that's rising in the United States and over the world, the Roman Empire, the cruelest of all of them.
Remember in the Name of the Lord. Get away from it. Come away from anything that's attached to it. Flee to the Rock. The coming of the Lord is at hand—watch that curtain, that's the deceiver ... the woman was arrayed in purple... scarlet colors,... decked with gold... precious stones and pearls,... (Remember me speaking back here what the first altar was of the Nicolaitane? See? Woman being the "church")... having a golden cup in her hand.
Then the three isms (Nazism, Fascism, and Communism) would all wind up in Communism. And how many in here remembers me just keep having you stand, and say it over like that, "Watch Russia! Watch Russia, the king of the North! Watch Russia, king of the North! Watch Russia, king of the North!"? See, what he would do, for all those isms will heap up into Russia.'
Whilst Brother Branham was neither a Republican nor a Democrat, he spoke hardly against the Democrats, saying they had sold out their rights long ago. A little reading of history will reveal that the Democrats comprise a multitude of factions, each demanding favor for their vote. But chief among them is the Jewish lobby who have financed Russian Communism, Israel, the international bankers, and Zionist interests at the cost of peace, millions of lives, and at the expense of (nominally Christian or Gentile) taxpayers.
Brother Branham read these Scriptures when he preached 'The Feast of the Trumpets':-
Leviticus 23:24: 'Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation'.
A memorial of the Trumpets God sounded over the past 2,000 years.
Isaiah 18:1-2:'Ho to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia (Upper Egypt): That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled!
This describes the state of the Ethiopian nation and the physique of its people, the masses of whom were 'meted' or drawn out, taken away from their occupations and homes during the extensive wars of Tirhakah.
This must be read in conjunction with the previous chapter, which speaks of Assyria's conquest of Syria and the Northern Kingdom of Israel. Judah was to have been their next victim with the conquest of Egypt and Ethiopia his ultimate object. The historical background of these verses is the abortive alliance in 714-711BC between Philistia, Judah, Moab, Edom, and Egypt against Assyria.
The king of Ethiopia, being informed of his approach, set out with an army to attack Sennacherib (II Kings 19:9; Isaiah 37:9). When ambassadors came from Ethiopia with this plan for revolt against Assyria, the new king, Hezekiah, was on the throne of Judah
Ethiopia's highway was the Nile. Her messengers traveled by exceedingly light and thus also exceedingly swift (usually one man) boats of papyrus reed. When the journey was obstructed by a cataract or shallows, they carried the craft on their shoulders till they could again embark. The prophet calls upon these messengers to go with all celerity BACK to Ethiopia so the whole nation could become acquainted with the miraculous way in which their formidable enemy would be overthrown.
'Go', go BACK home with the Message of verses 3-6. Isaiah 18:3-6.
Though this Message of verses 3-6 was specially to be sent to the Ethiopians, it was to be published universally. The 'blossom' represents Sennacharib's armies, the enemy of Israel miraculously cut off and destroyed before they could engage in battle. As in the harvest of nations (Ezekiel 38 - 39 and Revelation 14 and 19), the Assyrians were left unburied, a feast for the birds and beasts. The present brought to the Lord is the Ethiopian army who will marvel at God's vindication when they arrived at Mount Zion.
Yet a prophecy, this event was of immense importance politically, and calculated to draw the attention of the surrounding nations to the character and claims of Jehovah, so it was appropriate that messengers be sent back to inform Tirhakah, king of Ethiopia. More significantly, it established an important TYPE.
In the end time at the Seventh Trump and Los Angeles sinks, an earthquake will also split the Mount of Olives and destroy the Mosque of Omar on Mount Moriah. Jerusalem will again be surrounded by the Assyrians and their Muslim allies, but God will destroy them without hand as He destroyed the armies of Sennacherib.
Isaiah had strongly opposed Ahaz throwing himself at the feet of Assyria, and is now just as strongly opposed to revolts. When the prophet speaks to the ambassadors, he speaks to ALL inhabitants of the world, and calls for ALL the nations to hear this Message of universal importance. When an ensign is lifted up by the Lord of all nations, all nations must listen.
Isaiah 18:3: 'All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifteth up an ensign on the mountains; and when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye'.
When the ensign was waved from the mountain top it signaled the FULFILLMENT of this prophecy, and Jehovah received glory from the thankful Ethiopians when they saw that His Word was fulfilled. God will be vindicated before ALL nations when this Divine act of judgment comes to pass in the near future and He again delivers Jerusalem without hand.
Brother Branham quoted only three verses. This was but a type of the soon-coming Trumpet blast. When God raises an ensign on the mountains, Gentile days will be over, the resurrection come, and Israel's victory without hand His glory before all nations.
God will crush the enemies of His people in His own appointed time and in His own way, without human aid or reason. We scheme to save ourselves while God plans to save the world. At the very time when Judah was considering a desperate alliance to save itself, God was laying plans to use Judah, seven centuries later, to give the Savior to the whole world. For the past 2,000 years, the Gentile nations have been striving against circumstances in their own strength, not recognizing the enemy is in their midst. Their warfare against the nations has been against their own flesh and blood, and their own God. They have not recognized their day and its Message and they have not recognized 'the ensign on the mountains'.
'He that waits upon the Lord shall renew his strength'.
Isaiah 27:12-13: 'And it shall come to pass in THAT day, that the LORD shall beat off from the channel (or canals) of the Euphrates river Israel's northern border) unto the stream of Egypt, (Israel's southern border) ... as olive trees are harvested by beating with a rod (Deuteronomy 24:20; Isaiah 17:6) God will separate the true Israelite from the apostate and the false Jew WITHIN THE LAND—and ye shall be GLEANED one by one, O ye children of Israel. And it shall come to pass in THAT day, that the GREAT TRUMPET (Matthew 24:31; I Corinthians 15:52; I Thessalonians 4:16) shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of ASSYRIA, and the outcasts in the land of EGYPT, and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem.' Zion, the place of His rest.
This is the Seventh Trumpet and Dispensation change, when Los Angeles falls beneath the ocean, heralding the first resurrection and manifestation of the sons of God and announcing the return of Joseph to Israel. 'And all of the nations will recognize Israel in her homeland', God with her. Come, let us pray.
