"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are happy to see you.
The great Scott, Alexander Fraser Tytler (Lord Woodhouselee, 1747 – 1813) wrote "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage."
Australia reached that stage with Ponzi schemes like compulsory superannuation that boosted the bourse, prospered usurers and cannibalized public assets in public-private partnerships. With the National Health doctors discarded the Hippocratic Oath "Do no harm," and became businessmen. They don't treat patients with effective and cheap Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine whose patents have expired. They serve a John D. Rockefeller I "medical association," Big Pharma and international criminals and prescribe costly untested, unapproved faux vaccines—statistically more dangerous and deadly than the nonexistent Covid 'virus.' These willfully perjured individuals engage in the "inoculation of diseases" for depopulation and the "Great Reset." Another Ponzi scheme transforms the unemployed into good surfers or golfers on the FIFO accounting principle. Freebees are not restricted to Australian citizens or even residents.
This Machiavellian scheme has so ensnared the nations few realize they are being manipulated into adopting an "us" against "them" mindset. George Orwell (Eric Blair) said, "One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes a revolution in order to establish a dictatorship. Revolutions are brewing worldwide; in Australia the violence of many hundreds of police and military indicates some are criminals and thugs, obeying lawless senior officers and politicians unfit for office, without discretion. America and Australia have long had their elected dictators.
These elected dictators are members of the international criminal conspiracy, UN, WEF, et al spending millions of taxpayer dollars on armament, vehicles and training for rebellion against Her Majesty's subjects; against federal and state governments to conquer Australia and the various states in behalf of the world government with which "the god of this world" (II Corinthians 4:4) sought to bribe our Lord Jesus Christ. These dictators have taken Satan's bait; one of them says he is a Christian, but he is deceived as he attends a Pentecostal Church, impersonating the Laodicean Church Age that ended in 1963 when the Pentecostals (so-called) put Christ the Word without their camp (Revelation 3:20). Jesus' instruction to this evil man is "Give unto Caesar [Queen Elizabeth II] the things that are Caesar's".
The man is a traitor to his Queen, his oath to the Queen and Australians, his electors, wife and family. The unexpected reward these traitors receive will be a noose or a bullet to the head by their comrades like Germany's Administration because they knew too much about allied atrocities. And this man knows far too much. This revolution ties in with the foolhardy AUSUK Tripartite agreement disclosed last week. Are the pieces coming together?
Most Australians do not understand is that since the Law of the Sea Convention of 1982, which came into effect in 1994 Australia and its states are Corporations listed on the New York Securities and Exchange Commission. We are all serfs without a country. The US has not yet ratified the law. (See Newsletter 1031 and many others in which we have covered this matter).
I Corinthians 6:19-20, "Don't you know that you are not your own? For you have been bought for a price"—by corrupt leaders. The physical country and Goyim of Australia, the USA and other countries trading in bankruptcy as corporations registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, are mortgaged to the IMF. Ssssh! Hidden knowledge discloses corruption at the top. Following Fabian gradualist principles (sic), nations are being drawn into Lucifer's one world government. The developed world is being socialized to bankruptcy via the Cloward Piven strategy. In this context it is noteworthy that the Welfare state and immigration of inassimilable refugees favour international banksters, not nations or their bottom line. Billions are wasted on the globalization and Climate change psyops. The Rothschild dynasty bought a majority stake in Weather Central, bringing together control of weather, food and population. The sun is the major control of climate, not simply by irradiation, and not by irradiation modified by greenhouse gases. Variations in energy gained from the sun are caused by Milankovitch cycles which result from changes in the distance to the sun, but more important are sun spots and solar cycles. There is a very good correlation of sunspots and climate . . . Ken Schatten, the solar physicist with the best track record in predicting solar cycles, suggests we could be heading for a Maunder Minimum. There is also a De Vries cycle of 210 years, and the last one was 201 years ago, so the next one is due. If the two cycles are superimposed it will be even colder (carbon-sense.com).
The chairman of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), an 'independent Australian government body' that acts as Australia's corporate regulator was once simultaneously chairman of Rothschild banks. He devised a Cloward and Piven strategy for government-funded education, bypassing the fact educational success is based on the child's determination and ability plus dedicated parental guidance and discipline.
This unprincipled hardness of heart prophesied in II Timothy 3:1 – 4:3 and Revelation 3:15-20 is universal, indicating the end of the Gentile dispensation and Satan's casting down to earth are nigh. The City of London's killers, Australia, the USA and UK (ASUK) want to fight China and Russia. Like a rudderless ship the West watched on as the 20th anniversary of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization focused on two key deliverables: shaping up Afghanistan and kicking off a full-spectrum Eurasian integration.
The two defining moments of the historic 20th anniversary Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Dushanbe, Tajikistan had to come from the keynote speeches of—who else—the leaders of the Russia-China strategic partnership.
Xi Jinping: "Today we will launch procedures to admit Iran as a full member of the SCO."
Vladimir Putin: "I would like to highlight the Memorandum of Understanding that was signed today between the SCO Secretariat and the Eurasian Economic Commission. It is clearly designed to further Russia's idea of establishing a Greater Eurasia Partnership covering the SCO, the EAEU (Eurasian Economic Union), ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and China's Belt and Road initiative (BRI)."
In short, over the weekend, Iran was enshrined in its rightful, prime Eurasian role, and all Eurasian integration paths converged toward a new global geopolitical—and geo-economic—paradigm, with a sonic boom bound to echo for the rest of the century.
That was the killer one-two punch immediately following the Atlantic Alliance's ignominious imperial retreat from Afghanistan. Right as the Taliban took control of Kabul on 15 August, the redoubtable Nikolai Patrushev, secretary of Russia's Security Council, told his Iranian colleague Admiral Ali Shamkhani that "the Islamic Republic will become a full member of the SCO" (thecradle.co).
Australia is foolish to fight the unjust and unnecessary wars of the City. China's Belt and Road initiative is a positive win-win project. The sinking of Los Angeles is on the horizon, followed by Russia's invasion of the US; a union of church and state in covenant with world Jewry will see a devil-incarnate Pope the world. After almost four years NATO will sicken of Rome and ally with Russia. Russia will extirpate Vatican City State, then the USA, followed by the consummation of Life.
The hour is late. "Make your calling and election sure" (II Peter 1:10).

Do you still call Australia Home?
September 3, 2021 — Australia is now officially a dictatorship, we used to criticise the CCP for their dictatorship, yet only a few years later we have followed in their footsteps. Australian police patrol the streets harassing anyone they like, cowardly bullies, beating up the public, even women and girls; they have sworn to serve and to protect, fining people for arbitrary reasons that change every day. The military also beating up people while police watch and do not arrest the soldiers. All online activity can now be monitored by the police and we have seen a comedian's employee arrested for criticizing the government, too much television . . . Rubber bullets, pepper spray.
Rejoice! in the Lord always
And again I say;
Again I say;
Rejoice! in the Lord always

Full story: Australia is now officially a dictatorship. Browse the following three items and you will understand how Australia and Australians, much like America and Americans, far fewer in number and an easy target to employ for rehearsal. If they went in 'cold turkey' like this stateside, the police would be mown down like ten pins. For this reason the "squeeze" is coming down hard upon us because we are an easier target.
Comment: Australia is a try-out for the big target, America. But they are coming to a town just like yours; in fact they are coming to your town. But the earthquake, invasion and garrison of mainland USA (a nation in irreversible decline) will interrupt the plan and throw thankful Americans into the arms of Rome as Daniel and Jesus Christ prophesied. Church and state will reunite before Americans find that they have jumped out of the pan and into the Fire.

Australian Lawyers challenge Government Covid Lockdown in Court
September 10, 2021— More than 150,000 viewers logged into NSW Supreme Court to watch a Directions Hearing by AFL Solicitors on Wednesday challenging the entire Covid regime of lockups, forced vaccinations and out of control police and politicians.
Meryl Dory of the Australian Vaccination Network interviews Matthew Hopkins of AFL Solicitors who maintains the NSW police have way overstepped the mark. He confirms the NSW Government is acting unlawfully in step with all state governments and the federal government.
The case will be heard on September 30 and promises to be a blockbuster event watched by the world whose view of Australia has been tarnished forever by the unlawful actions of LNP/ALP duopoly railing against an esoteric VIRUS HAS NEVER BEEN PROVEN TO EXIST. Small business and tourism across Australia have been decimated by the unlawful lockdowns. Full story: rumble.com

New Bill to allow Foreign Forces & Troops to be used on Australian Soil
September 24, 2021 — A SPECIAL MESSAGE to all Police and Military. Things are happening at lightning speed, as you know Australia has already ushered in the New World Order and are using and abusing the Police and Military to help 'vaccinate' (poison) the population as their intention is GENOCIDE! However, as they now want to also vaccinate the Police Force and Military, that means that they have more nefarious plans in store [blue helmets] . . . I ask all police to TAKE A STAND NOW! YOUR GOVERNMENT IS COMMITTING TREASON. Full story: australiannationalreview.com
Comment: The "squeeze" is no longer subtle, employing corrupt laws instituted by and for the enemy of God and man, now it is open and in the street, and the thugs are the police men and women, and the military. The Afghan refugees must be lining up at the UN office for a mercy flight to Kabul where they can feel safe.
US Law authorizes Secretive, National 'Exercises' against Public Health Threats
September 14, 2021 — A 2019 federal law raises concerns that the US government may be engaging in large-scale COVID-19 'drills' without alerting the public. Previous articles mentioned that leading up to the reported COVID-19 pandemic, the US government made multiple actions on laws governing pandemics, including US laws governing pandemic preparedness "drills and exercises."
This article will focus on the [prescient] Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness and Advancing Innovation Act of 2019, passed by Congress and signed into law on June 24, 2019, only a few months before COVID-19. That law describes requirements for the National Health Security Strategy 2019-2022.
Within the 2019 US Pandemic Act and other laws and documents, one may find language that can be interpreted as potential tip-offs that the US government may have intended to coordinate with international governments and other entities to "convene" a falsified pandemic or somewhat covert pandemic "drill" or "operational exercise." The information may be seen as additional support for the claim that the COVID-19 pandemic may be partially or completely falsified. The Pandemic Act enhances legal authority to prepare for pandemics . . . Full story: lifesitenews.com
Comment: The arrow on the packet points to 2016.07.15 indicating this 4ml vial of Astrazeneca Covid-19 vaccine was manufactured and packed on July 15, 2016—three and a half years before Covid-19 existed. As the MOSSAD/Deep State/US Administration's covert exercise with holographic depictions of two jet air liners appearing to crash into the Northern and Southern towers of the WTC ran parallel to the official Norad exercise it is apparent that the Covid plandemic of the FDA, CDC, WHO, the tax exempt foundations and Big Pharma's deadly faux vaccines with national governments in lockstep and economies in lockdown was cover for the UN/WEF/City of London bankers' "Great Reset" deindustrialization and global depopulation.
Does this explain why governments joined at the hip are mandating unhealthy quarantine, masking, antisocial distancing, economic shutdown for a 'flu called Covid-19 under the psychological terror of a 'virus,' when there is NO Covid virus. The untested, unproven vaccines (sic) for the "inoculation of diseases" specified in The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion is what one should fear. And Big Pharma arranged indemnification with governments ahead of the "pandemic live exercise".
Jesus prophesied, "As it was in the days of Noah, the earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence".
Physicians, including Dr. Robert Malone, to fight Medical Tyranny
September 22, 2021 — When Americans see the data on COVID deaths of over 600,000, who or what should they blame? The truth is this: Better than blaming the virus they should blame hospitals and the vast majority of physicians. Because the medical establishment has never had the courage to stand up to the medical tyranny engineered by Fauci and implemented by the CDC and FDA. People still are dying from COVID because their physicians refuse to genuinely follow the science and prescribe cheap, safe and proven generics like Ivermectin. Full story: noqreport.com
FDA allows Whistleblower Testimony: Covid-19 Vaccines killing & harming
September 19, 2021 — The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) held a Vaccine Advisory Committee meeting yesterday (September 17, 2021) to discuss authorizing a third Pfizer COVID-19 "booster shot." There were signs heading into the meeting this week that there could be some fireworks at this hearing, as two top vaccine research scientists at the FDA, Dr. Marion Gruber and Dr. Phillip Kause, the Director and Deputy Director of the Office of Vaccines Research, recently resigned. This followed a report published in The Lancet from 18 officials at the FDA opposing the Biden Administration's plan to start distributing Pfizer "booster shots" later this month (September, 2021) before the FDA had even approved them.
. . . The 18 member committee voted 16 to 2 AGAINST approving the booster shots . . . there are no trials large enough yet to prove that the COVID-19 vaccines reduce hospitalization without causing serious harm . . . the "vaccine hesitant" coming into his emergency room were more educated on the risks of the COVID-19 vaccine than those vaccinated . . .

Comment: "Everything collapses without the existence of a Virus" – Dr. Andrew Kaufman, September 7, 2021. By the grace of God this Church has told you so for two and a half years.
- More people are dying from shots than from Covid
- 71 X more are suffering heart attack
- 1,000% increase of heart attacks
- Vaccine hesitant smarter than doctors
Pathologist Dr. Ryan Cole gives an excellent talk to other doctors at the White Coat Summit. He doesn't mince words on how INSANE it is to have 11 THOUSAND deaths from the (so-called) vaccine, which is really a gene-therapy experimental jab. So, FINALLY after 'only' 11 THOUSAND deaths (according to CDC VAERS database), is the VERY FIRST Autopsy now performed . . . Dr. Cole proclaims . . ." So . . . this is SCIENCE" Everyone must see this video (brighteon.com).
Rabbi Weissman: 31 Reasons Why I won't take the Vaccine
- February 2, 2021 — It's not a vaccine. A vaccine by definition provides immunity to a disease. This does not provide immunity to anything. In a best-case scenario, it merely reduces the chance of getting a severe case of a virus if one catches it. Hence, it is a medical treatment, not a vaccine. I do not want to take a medical treatment for an illness I do not have.
The drug companies, politicians, medical establishment, and media have joined forces to universally refer to this as a vaccine when it is not one, with the intention of manipulating people into feeling safer about undergoing a medical treatment. Because they are being deceitful, I do not trust them, and want nothing to do with their medical treatment.
- Comment: COVID has surged in nations with high vaccination rates like Seychelles, Iceland, Israel, Bermuda, and Singapore. Compliance with lockdowns is falling fast all around the world.
The presumed benefits of this medical treatment are minimal and would not last long in any case. The establishment acknowledges this, and is already talking about additional shots and ever-increasing numbers of new "vaccines" that would be required on a regular basis. I refuse to turn myself into a chronic patient who receives injections of new pharmaceutical products on a regular basis simply to reduce my chances of getting a severe case of a virus that these injections do not even prevent.

CO2 Monitoring Credit Card cuts You off at Your Carbon Max
September 23, 2021 — Welcome to the impending green dystopia of Agenda 2030 . . . the manmade climate change agenda is still being rapidly pushed forward while the NWO controllers see how much mileage they can squeeze out of the COVID Cult craziness. It is a strong possibility they will pivot at some point from the fake COVID emergency to the fake climate emergency and try to convince the population to go along with equally strict rules in some sort of climate lockdown scenario . . . the objective of both operations is the same . . . The long term Agenda 2030 technocratic plan is to introduce a social credit system in all Western nations, then the whole world, based on carbon credits and modeled after the authoritarian sesame credit system in China, which already locks dissenters out of full economic participation . . . recently proposed by Victorian Premier Dan Andrews[and hid deal with China (II Timothy 3:4)] when he advocated a vaccinated economy . . .
The aim of Doconomy is to entrench the demonization of carbon even further. It's to trick you into associating every purchase–literally every single one of your economic transactions–with an alleged carbon cost according to the faulty manmade climate change science. By imposing an artificial limit on how many transactions you can make, such a synthetic system would be greatly divorced from the biological reality of the carbon cycle, the necessity of carbon in all forms of life here and the life-giving nature of carbon dioxide.

The Winner in Afghanistan: China
September 12, 2021 — A debacle marks the decline of Washington's world leadership as China's geopolitical squeeze play on Afghanistan shows all too vividly, there is still much wisdom in the words that Sir Halford Mackinder wrote over a century ago: "Who rules the World Island commands the World." After watching a Washington that's invested so much in its military be humiliated in Afghanistan, we might add: "Who does not command the World Island cannot command the World".
What is it about this country and enemies? It can't even pretend to do without them. Of course, it just lost one enemy, the Taliban, in a humiliating fashion, even as President Biden bragged that no country had ever airlifted itself out of a losing war quite so brilliantly. ("No nation has ever done anything like it in all of history. Only the United States had the capacity and the will and ability to do it, and we did it today.") In the process, he also announced that the forever wars of the last 20 years were finally ending. But don't panic—not, at least, if you happen to be a failed commander from those wars or a CEO in one of the many companies that make up the industrial part of the military-industrial complex. There's so much more to come. As Biden said, "The world is changing. We're engaged in a serious competition with China. We're dealing with the challenges on multiple fronts with Russia."
Keep in mind that, in these last two decades, the US has spent an estimated $8 trillion just on our forever wars (and the care of the veterans of those conflicts). Worse yet, possibly $21 trillion went into those conflicts and the militarization of American society that went with them. That scale of investment can't continue without an enemy. Of course, from its earliest moments in office, the Biden foreign-policy team has been focused on "pivoting" from war-on-terror targets to provoking China. That's included threatening naval gestures in the Strait of Taiwan and the South China Sea, a calling-together of allies to confront Beijing in an ever-more-militarized fashion, and greater support for Taiwan. It all adds up to an enemy-filled future in which Congress must continue to invest ever more staggering sums in the military-industrial complex rather than in this country's true infrastructure or genuine needs.
In fact, the House Armed Services Committee promptly endorsed a plan to add an extra $24 billion (above and beyond the staggering $715 billion the Biden administration had requested for the 2022 Pentagon budget). The equivalent Senate committee had already given thumbs up to a similar sum, indicating that the next Pentagon budget will be in the range of $740 billion dollars. California Representative Ro Khanna was among the few who gave the measure thumbs down. ("We just ended the longest war in American history, now is the time to decrease defense spending, not increase it . . . We are already spending three times as much on our military as China did.")
China has proven so much cannier about its investments on a planet that itself needs some genuine human investment before it becomes a gigantic Kabul. The collapse of the American project in Afghanistan . . . couldn't be more significant in ways few in this country can even begin to grasp . . .

Comment: The decline of the United States marks the end of Japheth's expansion (Genesis 9:27). The people say, "America. God bless America. It's a nation, it's a Christian country".
Brother Branham said, "It's a million miles from being a Christian country. I don't even pray for it. How can I pray for it, and it won't repent under the mighty powers of God demonstrated before it; and denying, and closing the doors to It, and walking away? I commit it to God. And she is going further away. And now she is going to sink. Just watch what happens" (65-0718M, Trying to do God a Service without being the Will of God, par. 136).
America's decline is terminal. The US rejected her last opportunity of national repentance at the jubilee of the Pentecostal Revival, 1956/7. The Laodicea Church Age ended in 1963 when the Pentecostals (so-called) fulfilled Revelation 3:20, and joined the ranks of denominations that have been impersonating the Philadelphian Church Age that ended in 1906, and the Sardis Church Age that ended in 1750. We must walk in the Light Christ is shining NOW (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7).
The Gentile dispensation will close one Good Friday (Nisan 14), marked by the sinking of Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth's crust. Shortly after the Day of Pentecost, the US mainland will be successfully invaded and briefly occupied. Seven years later the United States will be blown from the face of the earth. As Mr. Netanyahu said, "Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States, it can dry up and blow away." It is later that you think or would dare imagine.
Zechariah's First and Second Visions
Pharisaism is Judaism: before the apostle and prophet Paul was born-again he was a fanatical Pharisee trying to do God a service without it being His will. Acts 9:1-5, "Still breathing out threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, Saul went to the high priest requesting of him letters to synagogues at Damascus, that if he found any Christian men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem." [The euphemistic subterfuge Birkat Ha-Minim "blessing" the Heretics: "let there be no hope for the wicked and for Christians"—a pattern for the 144,000 Israelite Christians and the Foolish virgins Revelation 13:15-18]".
"But as he was nearing Damascus, suddenly a brilliant Light from heaven encircled him! He fell to the ground and heard a Voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me? And he said, Who are you, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom you persecute: it is hard for you to kick against the pricks".
One who persecutes God's elect is persecuting God Himself and will be judged. As He told Abraham: "I will bless those who bless you, and curse him who curses you: and in you shall all Gentile nations [of Adam's race] be blessed" (Genesis 12:3). Paul would see that "God and the soul that is joined together with God is One Spirit" (I Corinthians 6:17) for Abraham's Seed was Jesus Messiah so Christians are Abraham's seed by their new birth which is the baptism with the Holy Ghost (Genesis 22:18; Galatians 3:26-29), thus he who blesses us will be blessed and he who curses us will be cursed.
Brother Branham said, "Now we can see why there were two vines, one true and one false, [a tiny true Church, and an immense false church (Luke 12:32)]. Now we can see why Abraham had two sons, Ishmael born after the flesh who persecuted Isaac born after the promise. Now we can see how that out of the same parents two boys came forth as twins, one knowing and loving the things of God, and the other knowing much of the same truth, but not of the same Spirit, hence persecuting the child that was elect. God did not reprobate for the sake of reprobation. He reprobated for the sake of the elect. ELECT CANNOT persecute elect. ELECT CANNOT harm elect. It is the reprobates that persecute and destroy the elect. Oh, those reprobates are religious. They are smart. They are of the Cain line, the serpent seed. They build their Babels, they build their cities, they build their empires, and all the while calling on God. They hate the true seed, and they will do all they can, (even in the Name of the Lord) to destroy God's elect ones. But they are needed. "What is the chaff to the wheat?" No chaff, no wheat. But at the end, what happens to the chaff? It is burned with fire unquenchable. And the wheat? Where is it? It is gathered in His garner; it is where He is."
"Oh elect of God, beware. Study closely. Be careful. Work out your salvation with fear and trembling. Rely upon God and be strong in His might. Your adversary, the Devil, is even now going about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. Watch unto prayer and be steadfast. This is the end time. Both the true and false vine are coming into maturity, but before the wheat matures, those ripened tares must be bound for the burning. See, they are all joining the World Council of Churches. That is the binding. Soon the garnering of the wheat will come. But right now the two spirits are at work in two vines. Come out from among the tares. Start to overcome that you may be considered praiseworthy for your Lord, and fit to reign and rule with Him" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 359:1-2).
We aspire to be found praiseworthy as workmen with no cause to be ashamed, and having rightly divided the Message of Truth our first conviction on hearing and believing God's Word is a need to repent of our shortcomings and past unbelief. After the Judahites had returned from exile and rebuilt Jerusalem and its walls, the Lord said through His prophet Haggai, you have resettled in straitened circumstances: restore My Temple and I will bless you with good seasons and bountiful harvests. Two months later His prophet Zechariah called Judah to repentance: "The Lord was fervently angry with your fathers [indicated by the destruction of their city, His Temple, and their captivity]. Thus says the Lord of hosts; return to Me, and [in consequence] I will return to you. Do be not like your fathers [who were refractory], to whom the former prophets loudly proclaimed: Thus says the Lord of hosts, return from your evil ways and from your evil deeds: but they did not hear, or heed Me, says the Lord."
"Your fathers perished [as foretold and their fate ought to warn you]. [I grant] you may say, the prophets are also dead; but My Word endures so beware lest you share their fate. My Words and My statutes overtook and punished your fathers so they repented and said, As the Lord of hosts decreed to do to us for our evil ways and deeds, so has He dealt with us" (Zechariah 1:2-6).
The Church Age fathers and our prophet William Branham are long dead, but his Words will overtake us for good or evil, so let us "work the works of God while it is day: because night comes at the close of the Gentle dispensation when no man can work." Let us not, like Saul before his conversion "kick against the pricks and persecute Christ" by getting out of step with the Message of the hour. Ours is not religion, habit and duty, but the heartfelt depth of faith in action following the Spirit of Truth who guides us into all truth and shows us things to come. Thus there is little purpose in reading these Newsletters unless your heart is right with God as you will grieve the Holy Spirit.
The foundation of Christ's true Church has always been a clear revelation of "the present Truth" practised by obedience not sacrifice (which is for disobedience). Jesus' nine beatitudes of Matthew 5:3-12 invite us to look into our own heart and examine our attitudes that we may be blessed like the Judahites when they paid heed to Haggai, sanctified themselves and set to the work so that in four years the House of God was rebuilt (Ezra 6:15). I find this interesting because about four years after Israel's twelve tribes return to the Land of the Covenant the millennium Temple, which is the 144,000 elect Israelites themselves, will be complete, and they will seal their testimony in Judaeo-Roman Catholic martyrdom when they denounce her pagan trinity of gods.
The visions of Haggai and his contemporary, Zechariah, encompass both the re-construction of King Solomon's Temple by Zerubbabel and the re-instruction of the millennium Temple by "the two anointed ones who stand by the Lord of all the Earth" for the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel. These will be the Israelite (not Jewish) prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 endued with the Spirit and power that endued Moses and Elijah as they call to remembrance the Law of Moses for all Israel with its statutes and judgments, and demonstrate by expounding the prophecies of Scripture fulfilled over 2,000 years of the Gentile dispensation how the Law was but "a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, [as the Law] can never with those sacrifices which they continually offered year after year make the comers thereunto perfect" (Malachi 4:4; Hebrews 10:1). These prophets will introduce Jesus Messiah manifest in glorified flesh whose throne and dominion is on Earth, while as the eternal Spirit God's throne is in heaven (Isaiah 66:1; Revelation 3:21).
Much understanding of Zechariah is gained from the parallel passages of his predecessors prior to the Captivity, removing any uncertainty found in his words, for a good deal of what was future to them is to Zechariah, a prophet of the restoration like Brother Branham (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11) and Israel's two witnesses (Malachi 4:4; Acts 3:21-23), either past or present. So it is impossible to explain any of the glowing delineations of Zechariah and Haggai concerning a future state of Israel's deliverance and enlargement as having been fulfilled in the return from Babylon for they pertain to the millennium. However their immediate design was to encourage the people and their religious and civil leaders, Joshua and Zerubbabel, in their work of rebuilding the temple after the interruption caused by the Samaritans.
As the Lord Jesus spoke to Brother Branham one Sunday morning in June, 1933 and said that the Coming of the Lord was drawing nigh but that before He came seven major events would transpire and revealed seven major continuous visions; so in the night of February 15, 519BC He revealed eight visions to Zechariah, each closely connected and revealing an orderly progress in the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel (Zechariah 1:7–6:15). Both our Lord Jesus Christ and Brother Branham (who I believe is the interpreting angel of Revelation 1:1 and Zechariah 1:9) appear to and speak with Zechariah in his visions as they appeared to and spoke with John on the Island of Patmos. After His earthly work the mystery of God was shown to Jesus who gave it to one man, William Branham, after the close of the Seventh Church Age (Matthew 24:36; Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 1:1; 10:4-7); like John, Daniel, and Ezekiel, Zechariah was caught up in the Spirit into the Day of the Lord, and looking back through time, as I understand, he saw and heard Brother Branham reveal "the things that are to be".
His first vision sets forth the evident need of divine intervention in behalf of the people with the strong assurance it is vouchsafed. The second indicates one result of this intervention will be the expulsion of Israel's foes. The third promises great enlargement and absolute security in the Millennium under Messiah. The fourth exhibits the remission of sin, the cause of all the previous troubles, through Christ's vicarious death. The fifth is a counterpart to the fourth by promising the positive communication of God's Spirit and grace which secures sanctification as well as justification. The sixth is the curse on a scroll, recorded against sin flying over Judah and ultimately the whole earth; it will extirpate the impenitent by the fearful curse of God upon all sinners of whatever class. The seventh, the woman in the ephah signifies wickedness and Babylonian idolatry which will cease from the elect Israelites in the Day of the Lord. The eighth shows the accomplishment of everything promised by the first vision. The executors of God's judgment go forth from Jerusalem's sanctified mountains of brass upon the heathen persecutors and do not stay their hands until God's Spirit is completely satisfied. The eighth vision shows the union of the Priesthood and Kingship in Jesus Messiah, and reveals the conversion of the Gentile Church in the days of the Branch to His Wife, Israel's Queen.
The First Vision
Zechariah 1:8-17, "I received a vision at night wherein I saw a Man mounted upon a red horse that was standing among the myrtle trees in the glen; and behind Him were bay, tawny, and white horses. I asked, what are these my lord? And the angel that talked with me said, I will show you what these are. And the Man who stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These are those whom the Lord sent to patrol the earth. And the [riders] answered the Angel of the Lord who was standing among the myrtle trees, We have patrolled the earth, and the whole earth remains at rest. Then the Angel of the Lord answered and said, O Lord of hosts, how long will you not have mercy on Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, against which you have had indignation these seventy years"?
"And the Lord answered with gracious and comfortable words to the angel who talked with me. Then the angel that was speaking with me said, Publicly proclaim, Thus says the Lord of hosts; I am exceedingly jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion, and I am vehemently displeased with the nations that are at ease: for while I was but a little displeased they afflicted them beyond My intentions. Therefore thus says the Lord; I have returned to Jerusalem with compassion: My house shall be rebuilt, says the Lord of hosts, and the measuring line shall be stretched out over Jerusalem. Proclaim moreover, Thus says the Lord of hosts; through prosperity My cities will be spread abroad; and the Lord will once more comfort Zion, and again choose Jerusalem. Again loudly proclaim, Thus says the Lord of hosts: My cities shall again overflow with prosperity, and the Lord will once again comfort Zion and again choose Jerusalem".
The Man riding the red horse in Zechariah 1:8, 10 and 12 is "the Angel of the Covenant" incarnate in created flesh as when He appeared to Abraham (Genesis 18:1) and to Hagar (Genesis 16:7), wrestled Jacob (Genesis 32:24) and appeared to Gideon (Judges 6:11-24). Genesis 22:11, Exodus 3:2, Malachi 3:1 and many other Scriptures reveal God manifest in One created Man before His incarnation in the virgin-born Jesus Christ (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; I Timothy 3:16). This confirms Matthew 24:36, "No man, not the angels of heaven, but only My Father knows the day and hour of the end of the world [and My second 'erchomai' return]".
The colour of the horse symbolizes the purpose of its Rider, namely wrath and bloodshed to be inflicted on the foes of Israel (as Satan, the rider of the red horse in Revelation 6:4 slaughtered the saints from Pentecost to Pergamos). The myrtle that once grew on the hills about Jerusalem and on the Mount of Olives hereafter grows in what was a wilderness. Not stately like the cedar, the lowly though fragrant myrtle signifies the Old Testament Church of the Judahites in their affliction as a result of the Captivity (Isaiah 41:19; 55:13). The Angel of the Lord standing among them in the depression intercedes with Jehovah for Israel and is a guarantee for her safety, lowly though she now is. Behind the first Rider are horsemen sent to exact judgment against the nations, their ultimate victory over the world is indicated by the rearguard of white horses (Revelation 19:11-14).
Zechariah enquires of his guiding angel, "O my lord, what are these? And the angel that talked with me said, I will show you what they are." But the Angel of the Covenant answers, indicating that everything the interpreting angel says comes from Him as its source and is therefore THUS SAITH THE LORD. "These are they whom the Lord has sent to patrol the earth." Otherwise these are sent to counterwork and destroy the four Gentile world empires.
The riders' report that the Gentile world is dwelling in serene repose untroubled by any foe, is disturbingly contrary to Judah's expectation of a massive convulsion of nature based on Haggai 2:6-7, "Thus says the Lord of hosts; Once more, in a little while, I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land; and I will shake all nations, and the Desire of all nations [Messiah] will come: and I will fill this house with glory, says the Lord of hosts." But of course this vision was shut up and sealed to the close of the Laodicean Church Age when its mystery would be revealed to us through the angel to the Seventh Church Age, then to Israel by their "two witnesses" (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4-7).
Neither the Judahites nor the riders in judgment foresaw the Gentile dispensation and Christ's 'parousia' Coming to us before Haggai's earthquakes; or Christ's 'parousia' to Israel before His physical return with the glorified saints of all Ages to restore the Kingdom to Israel. They could not contemplate Israel remaining under Gentile dominion—as it is and will be—from Nebuchadnezzar's conquest to the consummation of life (Daniel 9:27), or imagine that the sixfold purpose of Gabriel's visit to Daniel would remain unfulfilled until almost 2,600 years later when Israel—all 144,000 of them—is born-again as a nation in one day then martyred for their Christian faith by the reprobate church (Matthew 27:25; Revelation 6:13; 7:1-8; 14 and 15).
Peace in the world means persecution for the Israelites. I Thessalonians 5:3, "When they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." Brother Branham said, "I've sent a persecution here and a persecution there, and I've run the Jews [he means Israelites] and drove them as hard as I could. And they've drove back in. Many Jews in the United States (which they won't escape from) has already received the Holy Ghost. But I've got all of the hundred and forty-four thousand [Israelites] standing there [in Israel] that's going to receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost" (54-0103M, COD par. 235). The announcement of peace will herald Daniel's Seventieth Week, "the time of Jacob's trouble" and the great tribulation (Jeremiah 30:7; Isaiah 14).
Knowing it will bring consolation and hope to the Judahites, the Angel of the Lord intercedes with the Lord as He would in the days of His flesh (Matthew 26:39, 42; John 8:28) showing that Father, Son and Holy Ghost are three dispensation claims or offices of the One Person of God): "How long will you have no mercy on Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah"? The Lord communicates His answer directly to the guiding angel, whom I believe is Brother Branham, who gives His answer to Zechariah. The seventy years of Judah's desolations (Jeremiah 25:12; Daniel 9:2) are past. Although the people have been restored, the population was small, the land largely a waste, they remained in a depressed state, and there was no sign of the violent convulsions of nature expected upon the heathen world.
They were anticipating the restoration of the Kingdom; little realizing that in 500 years Israel would murder his Messiah and suffer seven times more for her sin through 2,000 years of the Gentile dispensation. That is "How long"! Then grace will end for the world as when "God's voice shook the earth [after Israel went from grace under the Law]: now He has promised [in Haggai], Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, "Yet once more," signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made [creeds, catechisms, and ritual], that those things which cannot be shaken [faith in His unfailing promises] may remain. Since we have a Kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and awe: for our God is a consuming Fire" (Hebrews 12:26-28; Daniel 2:44; Haggai 2:5-9).
In order to be understood by all, the communicating angel is ordered to pronounce the immutable "THUS SAITH THE LORD, I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion. And I burn with vehement anger at the heathen in their state of carnal security, overconfident in their power and prosperity, but mainly because they have exceeded the chastisement I ordered upon Judah in love with a view to correction, to evil-entreating them for their own pleasure. Consequently I have returned to Jerusalem with mercies. All hindrances will be removed, the Temple will be restored, and the whole city shall pass under the surveyor's measuring line for building. Furthermore the communicating angel is commanded to publicly proclaim THUS SAITH THE LORD, prosperity shall overflow to the other cities throughout Judah in assurance God has by no means renounced His original purpose in choosing Jerusalem for His habitation".
When the red horses returned from the conquest of Babylon the Judahites had "rest" under the more kindly disposed Medo-Persian and Greek empires. And did you note a future "measuring" foreshadowed in verses 16 and 17 by the rod of the Message of the two prophets of Zechariah 4, Matthew 24:31 and Revelation 11:1-4? This will separate 144,000 elect Israelites—"those who worship in the Sanctuary of the Temple" and "raise up children to Abraham" as "lively stones" in His millennium Temple.
The objective of this first vision was to demonstrate that God's love is elective love and to encourage the dispirited Judahites that although there was no present appearance of the blessings promised in Haggai 2, yet these blessings were vouchsafed. Zechariah revealed the riders of God's righteous judgments on the ungodly nations, and like his predecessors looks down the whole vista of the future and outlines landmarks that do not exhaust the prophecy in one period but wrap up in terse pregnant sentences long cycles of historical development.
The Second Vision
Zechariah 1:18-21, "[Having sunk down in meditation after seeing my first vision] I raised my eyes and saw four horns, and I asked the angel who was speaking with me, What are these? And he answered, These are the horns that will scatter Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem [the entire Covenant people]."
"Then the Lord showed me four craftsmen [skilful destroyers or warriors to overcome the horn], and I said, What are these coming to do? He answered, These are the horns which have scattered Judah to such extent that no one could lift up his head, but these [skilful destroyers] have come to rout them and to cast down the horns of the Gentiles, who lifted up their horn against the land of Judah to scatter it".
A horn signifies a kingdom or national power and these four horns represent four successive Gentile world empires God would raise up to chastise and discipline the Israelites throughout "the times of the Gentiles" from Judah's defeat by "Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant" in 605BC to the consummation of life early in our twenty-first century (Luke 21:24; Daniel 9:27; Hosea 6:1-3). God represented the four horns to Nebuchadnezzar in the interpretation of his dream in Daniel 2 (explained in chapters 7 to 12 and Revelation 17). The four skilful destroyers or warriors sent to rout and cast out the four horns are the succeeding three horns, while the fourth is a "Stone cut out of the mountain without hands that will smite the image in the days of the ten toes of the feet that mingle themselves with the seed of men ["as it was in the days of Noah" (Matthew 24:37; Genesis 6:1-4)]. In the days of these ten kingdoms the God of heaven will set up a Kingdom that will never be destroyed, but will break in pieces and consume them all, and it shall stand for ever" (Daniel 2:42-45).
This unfolds the first vision in which the Lord is shown with the Medes and Persians, having taken the Babylonian empire and slain King Belshazzar, at rest among the myrtle trees on bloodied war horses. "God's anointed shepherd, King Cyrus of Persia" extended this rest to the Judeans as prophesied two hundred years beforehand (Isaiah 44:28; 45:1). Behind them in the vision, that is to say in the future, stand three hosts of skilful destroyers or warriors who will rout and cast out the remainder of the enemies of God and Israel: Greeks, Romans, and the Stone cut out of the mountain without hands which answers to the Stature of a Perfect Man, the white horses of the first vision and the Rider and His followers on white horses in the vision of Revelation 19:11-21 (where Brother Branham makes another appearance):
"I . . . . (insert your name here, because throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ's end-time Bride, the only group to whom the Message of the angel, Brother Branham, is revealed) . . . . saw heaven opened, and beheld a white horse whose Rider is called Faithful and True; in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of Fire, and on His head are many crowns with a Name inscribed which no one [of worldly understanding] knows. He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His Name is called The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, clad in fine linen, white and pure, followed Him upon white horses. Out of His mouth issues a sharp Sword with which to smite the nations: and He will rule them with a rod of iron [at the White Throne Judgment]: and He treads the winepress of God Almighty's furious wrath. On His robe and on His thigh He has a Name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS".
In Revelation 6:8 Satan had the name "Death" wrote on him; Christ's got Life wrote on Him. Those with Him are on white horses also, and they are called "the chosen before the foundation of the world." Amen. And they are faithful to the Word. Amen. Whew, I like that one. Called "chosen before the foundation of the world" and then faithful to the Word by their choosing, all stimulated with new wine and oil just riding right along, coming down to meet Him" (63-0321, The Revelation of the Seven Seals, par. 314; John 6:63).
"Then I saw an angel standing in the Sun; and he proclaimed with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in midheaven, Come gather for the great supper of God; to feast on the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, small and great."
In Ezekiel 39:17 God says, "And you son of man, THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD, speak to the birds of every feather, and to every beast of the field: Assemble yourselves and come, gather from every quarter to the great sacrificial feast that I am preparing for you upon the mountains of Israel, at which you shall eat flesh, and drink blood." This Angel standing in the Light of "the Sun of righteousness with healing [resurrection and translation power] in His beams" (Malachi 4:2; Ephesians 1:19-20; Revelation 19:17) is the fullness of the Spirit that veiled behind Brother Branham after Christ opened the Seals. Thus he was "the firstfruit of those who are Christ's at His 'parousia' Coming . . . and if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy: and if the Root is holy, so are the branches [you and me]" (I Corinthians 15:23; Romans 11:16). His ministry revealed "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever" (Hebrews 13:8), doing the SAME miracles and "discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart . . . as it was in the days of Lot" (Hebrews 4:12; Luke 17:28-30; Genesis 18). This was the LAST sign Jesus promised us Gentiles before the close of our dispensation.
Brother Branham said, "The Bridegroom call will come right through this, when the Son of man will come down and come in human flesh to unite the two together. The Church has to be the Word; He is the Word, and the two unites together, and to do that it'll take the manifestation of the revealing of the Son of man. Not a clergyman [i.e. Brother Branham] . . . Do you see what I mean? See, it's Son of man, Jesus Christ, will come down in human flesh among us. [The Angel of Ezekiel 1:28 and 43:2-3 is the "Mighty Angel" of Revelation 10:1-4 and 18:1 veiled behind "a son of man" to reveal "the Son of man"] and will make His Word so real that it'll unite the Church and Him as one, the Bride, and then she'll go Home to the wedding supper. Amen. She's already united (See?); we go to the wedding supper, not to the marriage. "Fill your flesh . . . self, of all the flesh of mighty men, 'cause the marriage of the Lamb has come" [(Revelation 19:7-18)]. But the rapture is going to the wedding supper. When the Word here unites with the person, and they two become one, and then what does it do then? It manifests the Son of man again, not the church theologians, the Son of man. The Word and the Church becomes one. Whatever the Son of man done, He was the Word, the Church does the same thing" (64-0816, Proving His Word, par. 236).
This vision of the "Angel standing in the Sun" is Ephesians 1:10, the end-time equivalent of Revelation 12:1 which portrayed the elect Israelites of the New Testament Church having crossed from the Law unto grace. "The Law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things" (Hebrews 10:1) is represented by the Moon whose dim reflection of Sunlight is now under the feet of the Church crowned with apostolic faith signified by the twelve stars over her head. Stars reflect the Light of the Sun in its absence and the Church is clothed in the Light of the ascended S_O_N.
In Matthew 13:39-41 Jesus said, "The harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels [or messengers to the seven Church Ages]. As therefore the tares are gathered [first in ecumenical councils such as the World Council of Churches, the charismatic movement, inter-faith groups, etc,] and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth His angels, [Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley, and William Branham] and they shall gather out of His Kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity".
Brother Branham explained, "An Angel is coming to bring the separation, the segregation between the right and the wrong. And no one can do that but the Angel of the Lord. He's the One that's going to tell which is right and which is wrong. God said He will send His angels at the last times. Not angels down through here, but angels at the last time, and would gather together. We know that this is the coming harvest time now. Now, and angel is actually interpreted a "messenger." And we see that there is seven angels . . . through the Church Ages . . ."
"Notice who He said that the sowers were, and also what the Seed was. One, the sower was He, the Son of God, who went forth sowing Seed. And an enemy came behind Him, which was the Devil, and sowed the seed of discrepancy, behind the sowing of the right Seed. Now, friends, that has happened through every Age since we've had a world. Exactly. All the way from the beginning, it started the very same thing."
"Now, He said, "The Seed of God, the Word of God . . ." Jesus said in a certain place, that the Word is a Seed (Luke 8:11). And every seed will bring forth of its kind (Genesis 1:11; Matthew 5:45; Hebrews 6:7-8)] And now, if the Christian, the children of God, the children of the Kingdom has become the Seed of God, then they must be the Word of God, the Word of God manifested in the Age that they're living in, for the promised Seed of that Age [i.e. "the present Truth" (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7)]. God gave His Word at the beginning, and each Age has had its Seed, its time, its promises . . ." (65-0118, The Seed of Discrepancy, par. 19-21).
As Paul prophesied in Ephesians 1:10, "In the dispensation of the fulness of times [seven Church Ages] He might gather together in One all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth." As required by Psalm 19, the sign of this event was shown to the world on February 28, 1963 before the fulfillment of Scripture. It was the Shekinah in the form of the Pillar of Cloud signifying Christ's imminent 'parousia' Coming. The seven portions of the Spirit that anointed seven earthly angels or Church Age messengers were gathered as the fullness of the Spirit over Sunset Mountain on March 8, 1963 when Christ opened the Seven Seals and caught up His Prophet into a constellation of the seven stars, angels, seraphim or theophanies representing God's stone Bible—the Great Pyramid Enoch built—which is the Word; when the photographs are turned to the right they portray Jesus Christ wigged as Judge looking down upon the world (Revelation 1:16, 20; John 5:27; Daniel 7:9; Revelation 1:14).
This signified the "Mighty Angel," Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Lord fulfilling Ezekiel 1:28; 43:2, Revelation 10:1-4, and 18:8. It was the fullness of the Spirit that would veil itself behind the sin-born flesh of William Branham as once it was veiled behind the created flesh of Melchisedec in Genesis 18, and behind the virgin-born man in the Gospels to reveal Jesus Christ. Seven portions of the Spirit revealed PART-Word to the Church Age saints, but only the fullness of the Spirit could unveil the fullness of the Word, hence Brother Branham said, "The Elijah of this day will be Jesus Christ" (65-1127B, Trying to do God a Service without it being God's Will, par. 212; 65-0801M, God of this Evil Age, par. 170; 63-0322, The Fifth Seals, par. 212-215; 63-0324M, Seals Q & A, par. 53, 66; 60-1207. The Pergamean Church Age, par. 320; 53-0606, Demonology, par. 21-22; 62-1111, Why I am against Organized Religion, par. 194-223).
The Elijah of I Kings 18 slew the prophets of Baal, the enemies of God and Israel in the time of the latter rain following the evening sacrifice in the days of King Ahab and his domineering pagan Queen, Jezebel. He prophesied: "dogs will lick Ahab's blood. . . and eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel; the members of your family who die in the city will be eaten by dogs, and those who die in the country will be eaten by vultures" (I Kings 21:17-26). This established the type for Revelation 19:17 showing that it is the prophetic ministry of William Branham—Matthew 25:6, I Thessalonians 4:16, Revelation 14:9-11 and 18:1-3—the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6, that will invite the birds and beasts to eat the sacrifice of the enemies of God and Israel in the days of the latter rain after the evening sacrifice of the 144,000 is received. Brother Branham expounds this in (63-0321) The Fourth Seal" par. 334 – 381. "Jezebel, that dominating woman, represents the apostate world church system, "MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS [her (once) Protestant daughters (Revelation 2:20-24)] AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH [like Islam]" under whom the apostate United States (and her allies) will soon submit. Daniel and Jesus foretold the Judaeo-Roman Catholic false church will rule the world in league with the blooded military of a (once) Protestant United States of America, killing all recalcitrants and dissenters (Daniel 7:15-27; Revelation 17:1-6; 13:15-18).
Her Ahab and head of this Jezebel religion will be the Devil-incarnate pope, the eighth Roman Emperor to deify himself (Isaiah 14:13-14; II Thessalonians 2:3-12; Revelation 17:10-11). Delivering their kingdoms into his hand as champion against Judaeo-Communism the kings of the earth (the Black Nobility/NATO) will make this usurper of Christ (implied by his title, VICARIVS FILII DEI), a "king of kings" and (Revelation 16:13-14; 17:12-14). And you want to be a Roman Catholic??? This Scripture speaks of Armageddon and the consummation of life.
"Then I saw the Papal beast [and reprobate humanity] and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered to make war against the One mounted on the horse, and against His army [Jesus Christ "whose Name is called The Word of God"]. And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet [previous pope] who wrought miracles in his presence, by means of which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast [trinitarian worship] and those who worshipped his image [the (once) Protestant churches]. These two were cast alive into the lake of Fire burning with brimstone. And the rest [of humanity] were slain with the Sword that issued from the mouth of the One mounted on the horse. And all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh".
God called Nebuchadnezzar "My servant" (Jeremiah 27:6) and sent him to chastise blasphemous Judah when it followed the Northern Tribes into trinitarian worship. His grandson the secondary king Belshazzar set Eastern propriety at naught, introducing women, even concubines and sensuality at his feast, and whose crowning guilt was to profane the vessels of God's Temple to be instruments of revelry to himself, his princes, wives and concubines, drinking out of them in honour of his gods, thus persecuting Jesus. To mark the inseparable connection of sin and punishment "the same hour" God wrote his doom on the wall and "skilful destroyers" of the Medes and Persians took the kingdom and slew Belshazzar (Daniel 5; I Thessalonians 5:3-7).
"Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem" were already scattered and Judah was a province of Persia at the time of Zechariah's vision. Israel is mentioned, not to indicate the Northern Kingdom which God dispersed two centuries earlier, but to identify those of the restoration as people of the Covenant. It was Persia, now known as Iran, that released the Judahites, returned the Temple treasures that had been carried to Babylon, and helped fund the restoration of God's Temple. This is of no consequence to the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews in their enmity against the genuine Semitic Iranians (Genesis 3:15). Alexander's Greek empire succeeded the Medo-Persians and was in its turn supplanted by Imperial Rome. Her political and military power waned but "her deadly wound was healed" (Revelation 13:3) when Emperor Constantine united the Roman state with the remnants of the apostate First Church of Rome established by the apostles Junius and Andronicus. Constantine backed the union by force and the spirit that motivated pagan Rome now inspires false Christian Rome. The fourth empire never went out of existence; it just changed in its outer texture. Papal false Christian Rome now controls by religion even more ably than when pagan Imperial Rome controlled by the pure iron of force.
After the close of the Gentile dispensation the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and her (once) Protestant daughters will reunite with the state—the apostate United States (and other colonies of 'the City of London')—which is "the image unto the beast" of Imperial Rome. Whereas God raised up Nebuchadnezzar to destroy Judah, He has raised Judaeo-Communism to destroy the false church and the United States. This will precipitate Armageddon and the consummation of Life.
The four horns have scattered the Israelites, who must not be confused with their impersonators, the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Edomite and Khazar Jews of Europe and America. Scripture informs us all twelve tribes dwell primarily in the environs of the Muslim lands of the ancient Assyrian Empire (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:14; 27:13; 49:17; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 37:14; 39:27; Micah 5:3; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31; Revelation 12:14, etc,). One should never conflate Jews with the descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob: the Bible, history, and their most eminent scholars prove that "Jew" is a modern word found in no Bible prior to the latter half of the eighteenth century. Its meaning is contrary to the two words it has replaced, and Jews are seldom Judahites, Judeans, or even a Semitic people.
This is confirmed by Matthew 24:31. After the close of the Gentile dispensation "The Son of man will send His angels [the Hebrew prophets (of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11)] with the great sound of the [Seventh] Trumpet (I Thessalonians 4:16; I Corinthians 15:52), and they will gather together His [144,000] elect from the four winds [the war and strife that have scattered them] from one end of heaven to the other [under the dominion of the four Gentile world powers]." Contrary to the understanding of the majority of believers in the circle of this Message, the Israelites have NOT yet been "gathered together" to the land of the Covenant "for fear of the Jews." According to Jesus in Matthew and the Scriptures delineated above they will not return until after the CLOSE of the Gentile dispensation.
Brother Branham said, "National force ["skilful destroyers"] put [the nation of] Israel in her homeland [whose citizens call themselves 'Israelis' because they know they are NOT Israelites but impersonators]. National force ["skilful destroyers"] will put the church in the World Council of Churches. But the power of God will put the people in the Bride. The world forces this way, and the world forces that way, but God forces upward, the Spirit of God, which is the Word of God—"My Word is Spirit and Life will put the Bride in her place," 'cause she'll recognize her position in the Word; then she's in Christ—no national force will do it. But the national force did drive Israel to the homeland. The national forces of the [Rockefellers'] Council of Churches will drive every organization into it, but the power of God will raise the Bride into glory, out of it" (64-0726M, Recognizing your Day and its Message, par. 192; 1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3).
"We Jews, we are the Destroyers and will remain the Destroyers. Nothing you can do will meet our demands and needs. We will forever destroy because we want a world of our own" (Maurice Samuels, You Gentiles, p. 155; Benjamin Franklin; Genesis 3:15). These "skilful destroyers," of apostate (once) Christian nations are presently persecuting political Islam, forcing innocent people into World War III against political Zion with the objective of bringing both under submission to their god Lucifer's totalitarian one world government. I believe World War III has been ongoing at least since 9/11 but has not yet reached the "hot stage" which will be precipitated by the earthquakes prophesied by Haggai, Zechariah, Jesus Messiah and others, sinking Los Angeles, cleaving the Mount of Olives and demolishing the Dome of the Rock at the close of the Gentile dispensation and the start of Daniel's Seventieth Week. The military blueprint for this war was determined in 1871. After "the world sitteth still, and [is again] at rest" Rome will break her covenant with the self-styled Jewish banksters, then Judaeo-Communist Russia will annihilate both the United States and Vatican City State, and Armageddon will set in.
This vision carries forward the assurance given in the first vision by explaining the provision God has made for repelling the foes of elect Israelites of the Old Covenant—from the Captivity to the close of Daniel's Seventieth Week. Hebrews 10:30-31, "God has said, Vengeance belongs to Me, I will recompense, says the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge His people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God". nl171.htm
