Bible Believers' Newsletter 1035
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it's always good to have your company.
God bless you Brethren, our feature article "God's Rest" admonishes us as members of Christ's end-time Bride to "make our calling and election sure" by positive discernment of our understanding of and obedience to "the present Truth"—what Jesus is doing now. And having done all rest in the surety of the promises of God's unchanging Word for this day. We live in the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the antitype of Israel's Pentecostal feast and need not involve ourselves in servile work, presuming to interpret the meaning of God's Word like the Church Age saints. By God's grace we do have the perfect interpretation of the Word with Divine vindication so we can rest, confident in the reality of the faith of Jesus Christ as it unfolds in real time.
So long as we recognize our place in the Word for this day and see that Word is living in us we can rest, "let go and let God" bring us to maturity.
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.
Malaysian Airlines MH17 as a Prism of Disaster. Ukraine and the New Cold War
July 25, 2018 — Israeli-owned company, ICTS, headquartered at Schiphol, has developed the Advanced Passenger Screening with which the details of every flight are reported to the US authorities . . . established under Dutch law in 1982 by former members of Shin Bet . . . and El Al security agents . . . Its subsidiary, Huntleigh USA, shared security duties at Boston’s Logan Airport . . . on 11 September 2001. ICTS also permitted the Nigerian student, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallah, to slip past Schiphol’s normally stringent security with explosives sown in his underwear on Christmas Day 2009 . . . why did the Dutch Safety Board not delve into these matters and instead chose to lie about the battery cargo? Why did Malaysia Airlines remove the cargo manifest in which the batteries are listed, from its website? There are many more such questions that can be raised . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: Is the US in open conspiracy for war against Russia? Russia will invade and briefly occupy mainland USA with peaceful intent.
Military, Deep State and the American Innocence
July 22, 2018 — Like fish in the water, Americans have lost the ability to notice the pervasive and omnipresent propaganda . . . President Harry Truman who created the CIA . . . said in his biography, "Those fellows in the CIA don't just report on wars, they go out and make their own (wars), and there's nobody to keep track of what they're up to. They spend billions of dollars on stirring up trouble. The CIA has become a government all of its own" . . .
Since World War II, the CIA has meddled in more than 80 foreign elections around the world (doesn't include coups and regime changes!) . . . Right now, the US arms/funds about three in four of all dictators around the world! How's that for spreading freedom and democracy? . . .
From 1950 to 1975, the CIA—using a fleet of planes and helicopters known as Air America—was involved in massive heroin trafficking from the Golden Triangle area in Myanmar, Thailand and Laos. After the Vietnam War, the Deep State in the 1980s used heroin in Afghanistan to fight the USSR and cocaine in Central America to fight leftist leaders . . .
Through innuendos and bold lies, the Establishment convinced 70% of Americans that Saddam was responsible for 9/11 and even the Anthrax attack that followed. Go back in history, there are many such lies, including the Gulf of Tonkin claim that helped the US launch the Vietnam War, False flag Attacks, Torture, Human Experiments, Perpetual Wars, Mass Surveillance . . .

Comment: President Trump was right not to endorse the nebulous findings of the criminal and corrupt US 'Intelligence' [sic] agencies.
Under Massive Pressure, Trump backpedals on Russia 'meddling'
July 18, 2018 — Trump's questioning of the unproven narrative of the intelligence agencies was met with absolute hysteria and the implication that anyone failing to hold their unsubstantiated allegations as incontestable is nothing but a Russian agent.
In the post-World War II period, even within the tradition of American cold war liberalism, the activities of the FBI and CIA were always treated with extreme scepticism: as enormous and real threats to the survival of American democracy. For nearly half a century, it was noted, J. Edgar Hoover ran a police state-within-a-state through the FBI. The FBI and CIA, functioning as a law unto themselves, spied on and blackmailed American political figures, carried out coups around the world and were widely believed to have been involved in the assassination of an American president.
The Watergate scandal, the Church Commission of the 1970s and the Iran-Contra scandal of the 1980s, not to mention the intelligence agencies' role in fabricating the "evidence" of WMD ahead of the invasion of Iraq, their criminal mass domestic surveillance and their role in drone murder, made clear that these are criminal organizations, willing to use any means to expand their own power at the expense of democracy.
But now, these organizations have been elevated by the media into America's quintessential guardians, and their word declared to be the gospel truth. Any discussion of their role in torture, domestic spying and drone assassinations has been shelved.
Trump was denounced as a traitor, in language that seemed to invite a military coup . . . This entire sordid episode expresses the degree to which there is overwhelming institutional commitment within the US ruling elite for conflict with Russia, if necessary to the point of nuclear war. This war drive, which aims at the transformation of Russia into what would be for all intents and purposes a colony of American imperialism, has become an unchallengeable pillar of American foreign policy. Trump can commit any violation of human rights, can traduce constitutional norms at will, but he may not question this axial precept of American politics. Full story: wsws.org
Comment: If ever . . . denuclearizing the globe were to see light of day, Israel would have to be among the first countries to be denuclearized—which would be a real step towards world security and peace in the Middle East (globalresearch.ca).
Where to begin to analyse the madness of mainstream media in reaction to the Trump-Putin meeting in Helsinki? Focusing on the individual, psychology has neglected the problem of mass insanity, which has now overwhelmed the US establishment, its mass media and most of its copycat European subsidiaries. The individuals may be sane, but as a herd they are ready to leap off the cliff. Mainstream media is known for its herd behaviour, and in this case the editors, commentators, journalists have talked themselves into a story that initially they themselves could hardly take seriously (Mass Dementia in the Western Establishment).
Watching Weather Waves, but Missing Climate Tides
July 23, 2018 — Earth's climate is never still—it is always changing, with long-term trends, medium-term reversals and minor oscillations. Humanity is best served by those who use good science to study geology, astronomy and climate history searching for clues to climate drivers and the underlying natural cycles and trends hidden in short-term weather fluctuations . . . The past gives clues to the future . . . Earth has two natural global thermometers which can reveal short and long term trends—the advance and retreat of glaciers, and the rise and fall of sea level.
If glaciers are growing and ice sheets are advancing and getting thicker . . . average global temperature is falling. Glaciologists have drilled and analysed many of today's glaciers . . . outside of Antarctica and Greenland, no glacial ice older than 4,000 years has been found . . . Earth is gradually cooling towards the next Glacial Cycle . . . The next chapter in Earth's History will be a long, hungry, ice-bound era. Only humans who are good at hunting and gathering or have easy access to nuclear power or carbon energy will survive . . . Full story: carbon-sense.com
Mobile Phones – Insurance Underwriters refuse Industry Cover, Legal Cases Underway
July 21, 2018 — On 28 March this year, the scientific peer review of a landmark United States government study concluded that there is "clear evidence" that radiation from mobile phones causes cancer" . . . in February 2015, Lloyds of London, one of the largest insurers in the world, finally made its position absolutely clear with regards to exposure to non-ionizing radiation. In acknowledgement to clarification, this response was received on February 18 2015, from CFC Underwriting LTD, London, UK agent for Lloyd's—published in an article by RFSafe.
"The Electromagnetic Fields Exclusion (Exclusion 32) is a General Insurance Exclusion and is applied across the market as standard. The purpose of the exclusion is to exclude cover for illnesses caused by continuous long-term non-ionising radiation exposure i.e. through mobile phone usage" . . .
In September 2017 over 180 scientists from 35 countries addressed an appeal to the EU calling for a moratorium on the roll-out of 5G technology until potential hazards for human health and the environment were thoroughly investigated by scientists independent from the mobile industry. They pointed out that 5G "will substantially increase exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) on top of the 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, etc. for telecommunications already in place" . . . The first 5G ready smart phones are due to be rolled out later this year irrespective of the known dangers and the general public's mandatory exposure to it. Full story: truepublica.org.uk
Fox accepts Disney Takeover Bid
July 21, 2018 — These massive moves toward consolidating control over every aspect of communications, entertainment and news—including the Internet, social media, film, TV and radio—and fusing control of content and distribution, have come in the wake of the termination of net neutrality. That sweeping attack on democratic rights enables Internet providers such as AT&T to legally discriminate against certain communications and websites.
These gigantic monopolies are closely integrated with the government, including the military and intelligence agencies. Their increasing stranglehold on communications heralds a vast intensification of the corporate-state censoring of the Internet that is already well underway . . . Together with a further monopolization of communications, the wave of mergers is increasing the control of the banks over the industry . . . This level of leveraging increases the dependence of the corporations on Wall Street and accelerates the process of financialization of the US and world economy, bringing with it a growth of parasitism and financial swindling . . .

II Corinthians 12:9-10, "Jesus told Paul, "My grace is sufficient for you: for My strength [(Gk.) 'dunamis'] is made perfect in weakness." Paul reflected, Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest on me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong".
'Dunamis' is the Supernatural power residing in God's revealed Word working through His end-time Bride under pre-eminence as we 'let go and let God.' Christ must be working in us as the honour and glory are His due. We gladly glory in infirmities that make us Christ-sufficient rather than self-sufficient, knowing that His power dwelling in and resting upon us will add what is yet wanting when we apply the 'third pull' and rest in expectation.
Paul found comfort and actual delight in the consciousness of his weakness because the indwelling virtue of Christ rested on him. The word "rest" meant Christ fixed a tent, staked possession and dwelt in Paul as His power descends upon and works within every saint to aid the process of transforming his flesh into Word. Even Christ was "made perfect through sufferings" (Hebrews 2:10). "He gives power [strength] to the faint; and to them who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint" (Isaiah 40:29-31). Paul said, "Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses [than that they should be removed], so that the power of Christ may rest upon [and spread a tent over] me".
The image stems from the Shekinah, the symbol of the Divine presence once veiled in the Holy of Holies, now veiled by the flesh of the New Testament saints (I Corinthians 6:19). Christ's power overspread Paul as a tent and remained with him during his temporary stay on earth and rests on all who call upon Christ. "He came to His own, and His own received Him not, but as many as received Him, to them He granted power [(Gk.) 'exousia' or authority] to become the Sons of God, even to them that believe on His Name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of the spoken Word (John 15:14-16; II Peter 1:12). And the Word was made flesh and pitched His tent among us, and we beheld His glory as of an only begotten Son from the Father, full of grace and truth" (John 1:11-14). For Jesus promised, "I will be with you even in you to the end of the world" (John 14:15-20).
This was God's consolation to His humble prophet. Oh my! How can we possibly calculate the immeasurable value of God's grace, so rich and free? Of far greater value than the direct answer to Paul's prayer that he might be relieved of "the thorn in the flesh." God has often some better thing in store for us than the immediate answer to our prayer. Who can doubt that this was true of Paul?
Revelation 21:22, 27 and 1:6, "I saw no temple in New Jerusalem: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it . . . [only] those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life may enter . . . a Kingdom and priests unto God." Revelation 7:15 says Christ's glorified Bride of all Ages "is before the throne of God, serving Him day and night in His temple (Gk.) naos: and Jesus Christ who is seated on the throne will dwell among us." We are the Holy City New Jerusalem "which comes down from God out of heaven, prepared as a Bride adorned for her Husband," and the Temple beneath the Shekinah's horizontal rainbow (Revelation 21:3).
Know your position in the Word, know your authority: bring yourself subject to God's Word and recognize the reality that from eternity "YOU are a Child of the King." Don't announce this to the world; remain humble, speak the Truth in love and keep the Token on display: that "men will know [in their heart] you have been with Jesus" (Acts 4:13). We rest not on psychology's cunning but allow the 'dunamis' of faith to speak for Christ. Jesus did not psych Himself to perform miracles but announced what would take place as He spoke—IF the people would believe. He told you and me, "I have chosen you, and appointed you to go and bear fruit and that your fruit should be permanent, so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name, He may give it you. This I command you, Love one another. Don't worry about the opinions of the world. [I pray NOT for the world]. The world hates you because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you OUT of the world" (John 15:16-19; 17:9).
James 4:2, "You have not because you ask not." In Matthew 7:11-12 Jesus said, "If evil men know how to give good gifts to their children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to them that ask Him? So whatever you would have men do for you, do the same for them." Giving is also receiving because the loving thoughtfulness of the giver is repaid by the pleasure and gracious acknowledgement of the receiver. So the Lord loves to answer prayer and grant the desires of His children who have His mind and ask according to His will, not to "consume it on their lusts".
You are a Child of King Jesus, conduct yourself as such: "And whatever you ask in His Name, He will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; whatever you ask in His Name He will do." Luke 6:37-38, "Judge not, and you will not be judged: condemn not, and you will not be condemned: forgive, and you will be forgiven: give, and it will be given to you in good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over it will be poured into your lap. For the measure you give will be the measure you get back".
As a Child of the King you should recognize that Brother Branham's Tent vision speaks of our body change and the fulfilment of Genesis 9:25-27. "God said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be to his brothers. And he added, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. God shall enlarge [persuade and convert] Japheth, and he, [the six Japhetic angels to the Church and their converts from all three branches of Adam's race] shall dwell under the same Holy Ghost covering in the tents of Shem [established by the Shemitic first angel Paul]; and Canaan shall be his servant . . . hewers of wood and drawers of water" (Joshua 9:15-27).
We have a paradox: God's power is in absolute contrast to man's weakness. God always answers our prayers in His time for our good. Were we not left some weaknesses in ourselves His strength would not be so manifest. We are put in this position that the dunamis of God may rest in and tabernacle over us. In this present holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel's Pentecostal feast we are admonished to do no servile work but to rest in the Work Jesus Christ finished through the ministry of His Brother and ours, the Prophet William Branham (Revelation 10:7). Accustom yourself to resting in and relying upon Him. "Don't worry, be happy"—you are in Christ! Hebrews 4:10, "Whoever enters God's Rest also ceases from his own works as God did from His."
The work is done, finito, you have crossed the chasm between Laodicea and the Capstone typed by the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ after His death on Calvary and before He cleansed the heavenly sanctuary of the accumulated sins of the Old Testament saints and their resurrection (I Peter 3:18-20); rest in the abiding validity of the Divine promises of Isaiah 43:2. Read it and preach to the souls imprisoned in the breach between the Church Ages and the Seals (Revelation 10:8-11)!
Read Acts 13:33-39: Jesus did not want to go to Calvary but knowing who He was He rested in the prophesies of Psalm 2:7, 16:10 and Isaiah 55:3, "And by Him every one who believes is freed from everything by which they could not be justified under the Law of Moses." If you know who you are and your place in the Body, "rest in the Lord and wait patiently" (Psalm 37:7a).
Let us read what Brother Branham taught concerning the rest of Christ's end-time Bride. Although the revelation was not preached until March 17 – 24, 1963, and its understanding did not begin to unfold until the mid 70s, the holy convocation began with the close of Laodicea and the opening of the Seventh Seal above Sunset Mountain on about March 8, 1963 (Revelation 10:1-6). Brother Branham said:
"See? Ephraim at Beth-el, and Dan . . . set up idols, and these went out to worship . . . And here we are plumb down into the Millennium Age almost, and God still remembered that sin. They're not even counted in there. Amen. Glory. Just as sure as He remembers every good promise, He remembers every one evil too . . . That's the reason I believe, friends; I've always tried to stay with that Word no matter how strange it seems.
See, now, they wouldn't think about that there then . . . They thought, "Well, they got by with it." All right, but here they are over here in this Millennium Age setting in, when their names and tribes is blotted out from it, because they served idolatry that God cursed. Didn't He say He hated the Nicolaitanes and that Jezebel? Stay away from it. Didn't He say He'd kill Jezebel's daughters with the killing of death which is eternal separation from His Presence? Don't trust in it at all. Get away from it. So God remembers.
[Brother Branham is typing the apostasy and idolatry of Israel with the apostasy and idolatry of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church which entered "the depths of Satan" in the Thyatira Church Age (606 – 1520) and subsequently her (once) Protestant harlot daughter churches (Revelation 2:20-23; 13; 17:1 – 18:4; 19:17-21; 20:13-15)].
Notice. But did you notice there, it was to be blotted out? Why? Under heaven there was no immediate sacrifice that could give him the Holy Spirit to let him see these things, but he did it anyhow in his own selfish mind. But Ezekiel, in his vision in the Millennium, he sees [Israel] again in perfect order: Ezekiel 48:1-7, 23-29. Ezekiel seen every tribe just exactly in order.
All right. And also in Revelations 14-1-5, John seen them again in tribal order. That's right. Every tribe to his place. What happened? You remember, he said, "Under the heavens," that his name would be blotted out of the tribal affair. As long as he was under the heavens, there would be no more, and this hundred and forty-four thousand is down here in the tribal part yet. That's right. But you see, they'd been blinded; they had only the sacrifice of bulls and goats. See?
Now, notice, He blotted Israel out "under the heavens." But the Gentile in the days of the Holy Spirit, against That your name was taken completely off the Book of Life, and can never have forgiveness in this world or the world to come. Is that right? Now, there's where we stand (Matthew 12:32; Hebrews 6:4-8; Revelation 22:18-19). Israel under goats, sheep, they did have a place, as long as they was on earth here, their tribes was missing. They could never be included.
When He called them over there [in Revelation 7:5-8], the hundred and forty-four thousand, they were missing. That's right. They're not even numbered in there. And Joseph and Levi is put in the place of Dan and Ephraim. Now, you can look at there, right there it is before you. See? And here's God's promise way back there hundreds and hundreds of years before that.
Now, what happened? They were purged during the time of the awful tribulation period. Now, if God's going to purge that [foolish] virgin that was a good woman, but she just failed to get oil in her lamp, and He's going to purge her through persecution in there, He puts them tribes right in there for the same thing, and purges them during the time of the tribulation period, because it is a purging; it's judgment . . . [Matthew 25:7-13].
And look here. Here comes up the hundred and forty-four thousand after the purging of Israel [Revelation 15:2-4], and here comes up also . . . The sleeping virgin comes up purged and has white robes on. See? How perfect, how beautiful that is [Revelation 7:9, 14-17].
Just like Jacob in the time of trouble . . . he had done wrong, but he went through the purging time because he had wronged his brother, Esau. See? He deceived to get his birthright. But he went through a purging before he could have his name changed from Jacob to Israel, which was a type of the order of God's type today.
Now, we'll turn now to Revelations 8:1 . . . We must remember that this Seventh Seal is the end of [(Gk.) 'chronos'] time of all things [taking us to Eternity in New Jerusalem and the renewed heavens and renewed earth following the White Throne Judgment]. That's right. The things written in the Seven Seal Book (sealed up of the plan of redemption from before the foundation of the world), it every bit ends. It is the end; it is the end of the struggling world. It's the end of struggling nature. It's the end of everything. In there is the end of the Trumpets. It's the end of the Vials. It's the end of the earth. It's even the end of time. Time runs out; the Bible said so (Revelation 10:6).
Revelations 10:1-7. Time runs out. The angel said, "Time will be no more," in the days of this great thing to happen. Everything runs out in this time, at the end of this Seventh Seal.
Notice, it's the end of the Church Age. It's the end of the Seven Seals. It's the end of the Trumpets. It's the end of the Vials, and even ends the ushering in of the Millennium; that's on the Seventh Seal . . . Everything just ended up on that Seventh Seal . . .
Notice, the breaking of this Seal was so great that heaven was hushed by it in silence for the space of a half hour. Now, is it great? What is it? It was hushed: heaven. There wasn't a thing moved for a half hour [Revelation 8:1].
Now, a half hour might not be long if you're having a good time, but in the suspense of between death and life, it seemed like a millennium. It was so great, Jesus never mentioned it: none of the rest of them. John couldn't even write of it. No, he was forbidden to write here [Revelation 10:4].
And the four and twenty elders that stood before God there harping with their harps, they quit playing their harps. The Angels hushed their singing in heaven. Think, the holy Cherubims and Seraphims, that Isaiah saw it in the temple with three sets of wings, two over his face and two over his feet, and flying. And he's day and night they're before God, saying, "Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty." And even when they come into the temple, the posts of the temple moved with their presence. And these holy Seraphims hushed up. Angels quit singing. (Whew.) Flying in the Presence of God, singing, "Holy, holy, holy . . ." they shut up.
No angels singing, no praises, no altar service, no nothing. There was silence, hush, deadly silence in heaven for a half hour. All the host of heaven was silent for this half hour, when this Seventh Seal mystery in the Book of Redemption was broke open. Think of it; but it's broke. The Lamb breaks it. You know what? They were awed by it, I believe. They didn't know. There it was; they just stopped. Why? What is it?
Now, none of us know; but I'm going to tell you in my revelation of it. And now, I am not prone to be a fanatic. If I am, I'm ignorant of it. See? I'm not given away to such as 'lirious or carry-ons and imaginary things. I've said some things might been kind of strange to some people, but when God comes around behind it and vindicates it and says it's the Truth, then that's God's Word. It may seem strange that way. See?
And now, as certain as I stand in the platform tonight, I had the revelation that revealed . . . It's in a threefold manner. That, I will speak to you by God's help of a fold of it. [The "Shout"]. . . . What happens is that those seven thunders that he heard thunder and was forbidden to write, that's what the mystery is laying behind those seven consecutive thunders rolling out.
Now, why? Let us prove it. Why? It is the secret that no one knows about. John was forbidden to write about it, even, even write a symbol about it. Why? This is why there was no activity in heaven; it might give away the secret. Do you see it now? If it's so great it must be included, because it's got to happen, but when the seven thunders . . . [Christ's second or (Gk.) parousia Coming].
Now, notice, when the seven angels come forth to sound their [Gospel] Trumpets [to the Church Age saints], there was one thunder [Revelation 6:1]. When Israel was gathered, there was a Trumpet [Matthew 24:31; I Corinthians 15:52; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 11:15]. When time shall be no more, the last Trumpet . . . One thunder, but here is seven straight thunders right in a row: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, that perfect number. Seven thunders in a row, uttered not . . . making just one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, straight [signifying Spiritual perfection]. Then heavens couldn't write that. Heavens can't know about it, nothing else, because there's nothing to go on. It's a relaxing time. [All seven Church Ages were over, Christ's Mediation was fulfilled, redemption was over, "the time of the end" had begun (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 5:5 – 6:1; 10:4-7; 21:10), the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the Pentecostal feast had begun, and the 'rapture' had commenced at the close of Laodicea (Revelation 4:1-2)]. It was so great till it's kept secret from the Angels. Now, why?
If Satan should get a hold of it, he might do great damage. There's one thing he don't know. Now, he can interpret anything he wants to, and impersonate any kind of a gift (I hope you're learning), but he can't know this. It's not even written in the Word. It's a total secret. The Angels, everything shut up. If they made one move it might give something away, so they just shut up, quit harping; everything stopped.
Seven, God's perfect number, Seven [Brother Branham knocks six times on pulpit — Ed.] just right down the row. Seven thunders uttered straight together like they're spelling out something. Notice, at that time, John started to write, and He said, "Don't write it." Jesus never spoke of it. John couldn't write it. Angels know nothing about it.
What is it? It's the thing that Jesus said even the Angels of heaven didn't know nothing about it. See, see? He didn't know it Himself [Matthew 24:3:3, 29-36], said only God would know it, but He told us when we begin to see these signs coming up . . . [Luke 21:25-36]. (Now, you getting somewhere? All right.) Notice, we can see these signs coming up. See? If Satan could get a hold of it . . . (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 499:214-255, or p. 554:4-558:3).
If we have a revelation it is THUS SAITH THE LORD and will come to pass in its designated and decreed season and time. If it does not transpire it was not a revelation. There are many disappointments in life, but "all things work together for good to those who are the called according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28). "No true believer is any stronger and spiritually healthy and alive than his knowledge of and adherence to the pure Word of God" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 113:1). In hindsight we often recognize God has blessed us by NOT answering prayer as hoped.
"We must study to show ourselves approved unto God . . . rightly dividing the Word of the present Truth" which is the Message of the hour, taking that back to the Bible from Genesis to Revelation to ensure we have the same revelation as God showed His Prophet. Anything less is not "the whole armour of God, and will not enable us to stand against the wiles of the Devil" (Ephesians 6:11).
In this life nothing is what it once seemed. So much of what we were taught to believe from childhood was the hiss of the Serpent who quoted Scripture to Eve, adding one word to Genesis 3:4, "You will not surely die" when in Genesis 2:17 God told Adam "You shall surely die." When he tempted Jesus in Matthew 4:4 at the conclusion of His fast of forty days and forty nights, Jesus responded, "It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God." Just one Word (Revelation 22:18-19). Here Jesus reveals it was not fruit that Eve ate, but the words of Satan's lie.
The faith of the apostles and prophets, the foundation upon which God is building His Church, spells out distinct codes of conduct, responsibilities, dress, tithing, etc., for men and women, boys and girls, elders, officers, laymen and strangers both within and without the camp. Yet few who call upon the Name of the Lord "present themselves a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is their reasonable service. Rather, they are conformed to this world: not transformed by the renewing of their mind, that they may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Through the grace given to me, said Paul to every man among you, do not think of yourself more highly than you ought to think; but think soberly, according as God has dealt to every man the measure of faith" (Romans 12:1-3).
What we learned as national and world history is largely, as Henry Ford said, "Bunk": BIG LIES that must be maintained in order to cover the servitude and treachery of corrupt politicians serving the secret diktat of powerful 'citizens of the world' with loyalty to no nation. Their puppets who lead us are lauded, like the Jewish traitors Churchill, Roosevelt, Stalin and Eisenhower, who spent national treasure and the blood of tens of millions waring for global hegemony, while good men are defamed. No wonder they couldn't find Osama bin Laden, CIA employee 'Tim Osman' at Tora Bora, Afghanistan; he was schmoozing with Condoleezza Rice at CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia. No matter how many corrupt nations join the 'Coalition of the Willing,' they can never win the War on the abstract noun "Terrorism," because the terrorists are us. Likewise the hole in the ozone layer which became global cooling, which became global warming, which became climate change cannot be overcome because it is the Milankovitch cycle of the Great Creator, which would unbalance the solar system, were it manipulated by men. This illustrates the corruption of "climate science," the Jewish criminal organization called the UN, and YOUR government that funds this BIG LIE with YOUR income tax.
Are you aware that the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews have claimed three (3) so-called Holocausts, each of six million so-called Jews in just the twentieth century? They claim to have exterminated the second six million themselves in Jew-ruled USSR, so that in all the world there was no third six million left for Adolf Hitler to kill, had he shared their psychopathic nature. In addition to these BIG LIES, their lewd holy (sic) book boasts previous holocausts of billions of so-called Jews. "Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad".
Germany was invaded after the Armistice by "the kings of the East" (Revelation 16:12), non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews who plundered and transformed the nation into an amoral pest house of licentiousness. They control our (once) Christian nations and former colonies in person and by the 'hidden hand' that runs the Babylonian fractional reserve system of usury, central banking, fiat money, the Cloward Piven Ponzi scheme of bankrupting nations, global media, entertainment and education that destroy good manners and language—the key to mind control, making fools of men and "leading captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth" (II Timothy 3:6-7).
God hates Nicolaitanism: denominationalism is not of God (Revelation 2:6). Pulpit delinquency let down the bars and the goats came in condoning serial monogamy by 'no fault divorce,' prostitution, homosexuality (Genesis 18/Luke 17:28-30), miscegenation called multiculturalism (6:1-13/Matthew 24:37) and welfarism for inassimilable alien recalcitrants. Jewry's rescission of Australia's Restrictive Immigration Act and matters contrary to the Old and New Testaments implicates the apostasy of those whom the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel set at enmity with Adam's race (Genesis 3:15).
The human race has been 'dumbed down' over the past three centuries by the corruption of knowledge and propaganda. Although the apostolic faith has been restored and "the mystery of God is finished" (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7), people who claim to be Christians worship the Babylonian trinity of gods introduced at the Hegelian dialectic of the First Nicaea Council where the Judaeo-Roman church organized. They will watch a YouTube video but never exercise their eyes and mind in personal research by reading. They do not realize that there was no such word as "Jew" in any Bible in any language prior to the late eighteenth century, or that this modern word contradicts the meanings of the two words it has replaced.
Dmitry Orlov, a Russian-American engineer and writer on subjects related to "potential economic, ecological and political decline and collapse in the United States" had this to say on what he has called "permanent crisis." His thesis is that the USSR was much better prepared to survive collapse than the USA is, or ever will be.
After exploring all of the many symmetries between the USSR and the USA, I showed how the USSR was inadvertently much better prepared for collapse because of the structure of daily life. Housing was government-provided, and mass unemployment did not result in homelessness. Transportation was public and cheap. Employment was also in the public sector, untethered from the profit motive and not prone to instant bankruptcy. Families were close-knit by virtue of necessity and family members were on hand to help each other during hard times. Money was of token value and being broke was rarely life-threatening. Food came from government stockpiles and kitchen gardens rather than the supermarket. Medicine and education were public and free. Energy did not come from imports.
My conclusion was that the Soviet Union was much better prepared for economic collapse than the United States is. I then explored various approaches that might be used to close this "collapse gap." None of the alternatives was very good. Twelve years later, in 2018, I see that I was right: the USA is much closer to collapse than it was then . . . and nothing has been done to reduce the vulnerabilities outlined above. However, a lot has been done to reduce their impact, or at least to make that impact less noticeable.
In my 2013 book "The Five Stages of Collapse," I teased collapse into five stages: financial, commercial, political, social and cultural, understanding that collapse would generally proceed in a canonical cascade, starting with the most fragile (financial) and ending with the most durable (culture). Society and culture did not collapse in the USSR. Instead, people dug in their heels and after a very difficult period most parts of the USSR (the Ukraine is the one stark exception) managed to resurrect a political system, an economy and a financial sector. But what if society and culture collapsed first?
That is what I see happening in the USA and, to various extents, in different parts of the European Union: an attempt to undermine and destroy cohesive society and common culture ahead of the coming financial, commercial and political collapse. [By the genocidal plans of Count Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi run for and by the racial and spiritual supremacy of 'blood aristocracy and Jewry,' the many announcements of prominent rabbis cited in past editions of this Newsletter, UN Replacement Migration, the Mad UN Plan to Replace Europeans—evils prophesied by Jesus Christ in Matthew 24:37/Genesis 6:1-4, showing that history is planned]. It may seem like an odd thing to strive for, but consider this: if society and culture are destroyed ahead of time, when collapse comes there is no intact community of humans left to observe it and understand what is happening. With everyone's reasoning abilities sufficiently hampered, it will be trivial to diffuse blame when the rest of the collapse sequence occurs, to get the people to blame themselves or to scapegoat each other, or to simply ignore it because most of the people have bigger problems than collapse, be it their dysfunctional families, their various addictions, their religious zealotry or their extremist politics.
The approaches taken to destroying society and culture may seem disparate and lack a unity of purpose . . . until you understand that their purpose is to destroy society and culture.
• In education, the emphasis of training to take standardized tests squeezing out any real learning, supposedly motivated by the desire to be inclusive of disadvantaged, intellectually challenged minorities, creates cohort after cohort of young people no longer capable of independent, rational thought.
• In politics, real concerns are replaced with fake ones, centered on bogeymen like "Russian aggression" or "Russian meddling," reinforced endlessly through repetition without any actual evidence ever being shown, until taking reasoned, motivated political positions becomes impossible.
• In social policy, the substitution of gender for sex, supposedly to fight discrimination but in fact denying biological imperatives, denatures human nature to the point where people become minimally useful to each other.
• In immigration policy, the inclusion of a large population of migrants from incompatible cultures creates a sort of ethnic strife that cannot speak its name: pointing out that migrants are responsible for a large proportion of crime is considered politically incorrect and in Sweden has even been made illegal.
• In international relations, we have witnessed a concerted effort to destroy national sovereignty and to render national boundaries meaningless, rendering once proud nations into groups of migrants who speak broken English.
• In economics, every effort is being made to dismantle and suppress the power of organized labour, to open up the labour market to economic migrants, and to suppress local businesses in favour of transnational corporations.
To survive collapse, it is essential to surround yourself with people who are like you, with whom you can find common purpose, whose character you can immediately assess and whom you can trust. Without it, you are thrust into a dangerous environment—a war of all against all. But this war of all against all creates excellent cover for those in positions of leadership and authority who could have done something to mitigate the worst effects of the coming collapse, but have done nothing. Well, not quite; they have done something. They have gone out of their way to destroy society and culture.
It is important to note that participation in the cultural collapse juggernaut is by no means universal. Even in Europe some members, such as Hungary and Poland, are starting to push back against it, to say nothing of very large players such as China, Russia and Iran, who have managed to buck many of these trends. These differences will probably be useful in predicting which countries will survive collapse, and which won't (patreon.com).
Rest: God sent us a prophet with warning and a Supernatural way to escape the wrath to come; Enoch, who was translated before the Great Flood is our type (I Corinthians 15:35-58; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 4:1-2). Nothing can separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. "The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up" (II Peter 3:9-10).
"The Lord has come as a thief in the night" (Revelation 16:15), and the threefold PROCESS called the 'rapture' or "catching up" which will end with our body change and translation as Paul expounded has been on-going for the past fifty-five years. Rest, my Brother and Sister, rest! nl1035.htm
