Bible Believers' Newsletter 1194
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
Today's main article is "God's Promise of Restoration," please read it carefully and follow the Full story in each of our news items as we endeavour to deliver the Truth to your doorstep. Truth differs widely from the lying propaganda presented by the Jew's MSM monopoly in their quest to build a world of their own.
The conflict in Ukraine is a manifestation of Jewry's desperation to maintain control of the money power or US dollar. American wealth is paid for by the rest of the world. Qiao Liang, a former People's Liberation Army Air Force major general writes the Pentagon's "endless wars" are designed to ensure "that not only do dollars flow smoothly out of the country but also that capital moving around the world returns to the United States." We have asked general Mini to introduce Qiao's conception of the US Empire and its decline.
During a video conference in early December, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin stressed the need "of accelerating efforts to form an independent financial infrastructure for servicing trading operations between Russia and China." Do you think this is the beginning of the end of the dollar system? He replied, I don't rule it out.
Considering Qiao Liang wrote his book in 2015, he must be credited with great foresight and political influence. The two leaders are concretely interested in ending the hegemony of the dollar. As Qiao says, the dollar's waning may mark the beginning of the end of US economic and geopolitical hegemony . . . The Chinese general is stunned by how the US exercises its global hegemony: convincing the world that the threatening and warmongering countries are Russia and China, and not them.
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. We encourage you to share our Newsletter with friends, family and colleagues, and look forward to any comments or questions you have. 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.
Ukraine's 'Neo-Nazi Summer Camp': Military Training for Young Children
March 1, 2022 — This article written over 6 years ago—documents the existence of a Neo-Nazi agenda in Ukraine which both our governments and the media categorically deny. Ironically, it was Ukraine's MSM, namely the Kiev Post which published a carefully documented study on the Neo-Nazi Summer training camp for young children. The Azov battalion supported by its Western partners is not only involved in paramilitary operations in Eastern Ukraine. According to reports including the Kyiv Post (Ukraine MSM), it is running a Summer Camp military training project for young children as part of its broader training and indoctrination program . . . children as young as six years are participating in the Azov Summer Camp located in the Vodytsya district outside Kyiv . . .

Collapsing Covid Narrative being replaced with Putin & Ukraine by Jewry's MSM
March 1, 2022 — Iceland is the first country in the world to completely drop ALL Covid measures. There will be no lockdowns or social restrictions. There will be no mandatory Covid testing and if you happen to catch Covid you do not have to isolate. There will be no vaccine passports and no vaccine mandates. Anyone regardless of their vaccination status can travel to the country with no test required. The unvaccinated will not face any form of discrimination or exclusion from society.
Iceland is returning to life as it was before Covid. This by itself would be astounding enough given that Iceland is in the midst of a massive Covid surge and posting record cases even as we speak. If you did not know, the vaccination rate in Iceland is some 80% of the total population which means that around 90% of the adult population is fully vaccinated. Obviously—the vaccines have done absolutely nothing to stop or even slow down the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Quite on the contrary, they seem to have led to its increase.
Not only has the government of Iceland decided to drop all Covid restrictions and vaccine requirements, but the Ministry of Health issued remarkable new guidelines on how to deal with the virus. The country's health authorities have advised the Icelanders that "as many people as possible need to be infected with the virus as the vaccines are not enough . . ."
Iceland's government now tells its people that it is good to contract Covid. In other words, Iceland's government has decided to handle Covid through herd immunity derived from natural infection. This marks the complete negation of the official Covid narrative which was accepted as the conventional wisdom by nearly every government for the last two years . . . They are saying this after two years of heavy-handed lockdowns, restriction and closures that have caused untold economic—social and psychological damage. They have changed their mind after having conducted a global vaccination crusade that saw more than 60 percent of the Earth's population injected with inadequately tested vaccines that have proved to be less than effective and that have needlessly killed what could be millions of people worldwide.
This is undoubtedly one of the greatest debacles in the annals of man (bitchute.com). There were scientists who advocated herd immunity through natural infection at the outset. Those voices, however, were ridiculed, censored, discredited, fired and cancelled. Instead, one after another, governments across the world seized the false narrative and proceeded to impose a cascade of disastrous measures that inflicted unprecedented damage on the human race.
In the weeks ahead they will try to excuse themselves by claiming that the virus has changed and that it is less dangerous now that it was at the outset. This is true to some degree. The fact, however, remains that the virus never posed a great danger to most people. Its survival rate for non-confined individuals was some 99.7 percent. It posed virtually no threat to healthy children. It posed only relatively low risk to active healthy people of productive age. Certainly, the threat was not sufficient to justify wide scale school and business closures and other onerous measures. Nor did it justify indiscriminate mass vaccination of children and healthy people with the dangerous and deficient vaccines. These policies were a gargantuan mistake that cost untold trillions of dollars and countless lives.
Now that the false narrative is collapsing, those responsible for this debacle should be asked to explain themselves. These people, however, are very cunning and they are already in the process of skillfully diverting the public's attention to another place with a new narrative. Today they are all talking about Vladimir Putin as the greatest threat to mankind. They hope to inflame people's passions so they will not notice that Covid has somehow gone away even though a short while ago we were allegedly all in danger of dying from it. Now Vladimir Putin is the greatest evil we have ever faced. And as the added bonus, they will be able to blame him for the inflation, depression and other catastrophes brought by two years of destructive Covid policies.
The Covid-19 crisis was a government-imposed disaster from beginning to the end. The virus—which was created by the Chinese state in cooperation with Dr. Fauci and his friends, either escaped or was released from the biolab in Wuhan.
The Ukrainian crisis is likewise a government induced disaster. The feckless Joe Biden, Antony Blinken and their globalist cronies provoked Putin by pushing the idea of NATO at the doorstep of Russia. This was as unacceptable to the Russians in the same way that Mexico entering the Warsaw Pact would be unacceptable to the United States. Putin asked for assurances that there will be no more NATO's countries on the Russian border. This was not an unreasonable request, but they told him to go home and pack sand. We should not be surprised at Putin's anger. If he overreacts, the ensuing catastrophe will have been sparked by the provocateurs that were needlessly poking the Russian bear in the eye. Both Covid and Russia are false narratives. In a way they are one of a piece. The passions and emotions evoked by the latter are being used to hide and obscure the collapse of the former.

Comment: There is NO Covid virus! Covid was developed in the USA. President Putin and Russia are righteous friends of Ukraine; the Jew-dominated USA—UK—their NATO and Australian puppets and self-styled Jewish Oligarchs of Russia and Ukraine are sending white Europeans to kill each other as per centuries of monarchies—and World Wars I and II.
James Corbett Episode 413 – Give Send Gone
February 25, 2022 — The Canadian government's recent actions reveal the true agenda like nothing we've seen before. The future envisioned by the tyrants is one in which they can turn off your ability to buy and sell with the flick of a switch. So how will we react? Will we build a parallel economy from the ashes of freedom's funeral pyre—or will we roll over and let the tyrants win? Today James explores the future of money and the real meaning of Give . . . Send . . . Gone. This is what the WEF alumni like Scott Morrison, Jacinda Ardern, Jason Trudeau and other Young Global Leaders in the upstart non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jew Sir Klaus Schwab's Fifth Column plan for YOU . . . already happening in the USA in 2013. Imagine life under digital currency. YOUR government has declared war on YOU. watch first 10mins. Full story: corbettreport.com
Comment: It looks like PM Scott Morrison was sacked as Managing Director of Tourism Australia in 2006 because of fraud and theft. Aka 'Captain Covid,' Morrison has overseen Australia's trillion $+ Covid HOAX and FRAUD that has bankrupted many individuals and businesses—and led to the death and incapacity of healthy individuals as specified by Protocol 10:19 of the Learned Elders of Zion, "But you yourselves perfectly well know that to produce the possibility of the expression of such wishes by all the nations it is indispensable to trouble in all countries the people's relations with their governments so as to utterly exhaust humanity with dissension, hatred, struggle, envy and even by the use of torture, by starvation, by THE INOCULATION OF DISEASES, by want, so that the "goyim" see no other issue than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty in money and in all else." 'Captain Covid' has also ensured the "all else." As PM of the unlawful "Government of Australia," a corporation devised by second generation Commo PM Whitlam, and ruled by an imaginary "Queen of Australia." The Commonwealth of Australia has disappeared, and the corporation Australia in bankruptcy to the IMF is listed on the New York Securities and Exchange Commission.
Then we consider the record of other compliant Global Young Leaders such as Tony Blair, Justin Trudeau, and the Jews Emmanuel Macron, Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy—all primarily serving WEF, UN, IMF and City of London/Wall Street objectives, and damn their electors and democracy.
David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative at the United Nations wrote: "Lucifer comes to give us the final Luciferic initiation . . . that many people now and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age . . . No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian initiation."
The military blueprint for World Wars I, II and III was planned in 1871. After the brief "hot stage" of World War III, and I quote, "those who aspire to undisputed world domination will provoke the greatest social cataclysm the world has ever known. We quote Albert Pike's own written words taken from the letter catalogued in the British Museum Library, London, England.
"We shall unleash the Nihilists and Atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will be from that moment without compass, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view, a manifestation which will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time" (William Guy Carr, Pawns in the Game, p. xv-xvi). This strategy is corroborated by Dr. Dennis L. Cuddy PhD. in The Power Elite's use of Wars and Crises. (biblebelievers.org.au).
Many applaud the United Nations for its public policy and efforts of humanitarian society. However, the UN is a front for Luciferian agendas. Proven by its underlining Luciferian themes and esoteric teaching dedicated to its members WITHIN the halls of the UN even an occult meditation room is hosted at the UN. People do not realize the influence Theosophists have on the United Nations. Theosophy, founded in the late 1800s by a Satanist Luciferian occultist named Helena Blavatsky, influenced modern Theosophy. A group spawned from it under Alice Bailey called "Lucis Trust." Lucis Trust, originally founded under the name "Lucifer Publishing" before changing its name, publishes esoteric occult works and promotes its 24 esoteric writings under its main education centers, the Arcane Schools and Findhorn Foundation. Many prominent UN directors were Luciferians such as Robert Muller and Maurice Strong, who initiated Agenda 21.
America Ignored Warning NATO Expansion would be Greatest Blunder since Cold War: Ex-US Diplomat
February 19, 2022 — Michael Springmann, a former American diplomat and political analyst, believes what the US is really afraid of is "a multipolar world it cannot control" and this is why it has been desperately trying to deter Russia and prevent its deeper cooperation with China. In this regard, Washington's interference in Ukraine's crisis means that the US needs a pretext for starting another military conflict in order to spread its influence further.
Because of arrogance and contempt for anybody else in the world or any other country in the world, the American government is deathly afraid of a resurgent Russian Federation. President Putin has strengthened Russia. He's cleaning up the mess left behind by the collapse of the old Soviet Union, which was encouraged by capitalists in the West following the University of Chicago economic theories, which created real problems for Russia. And the Americans fear that Russia is becoming a strong state, able to challenge its idea of a unipolar world. What the United States is involved in is deathly and desperately attempting to prevent the Union of Russia and China, and so far as common interests, and they see that if they don't do something quickly, there will be a multi-polar world which they can't control. Additionally, I think that they don't read history; they don't listen to their own diplomats. The former American ambassador to the Soviet Union, Jack Matlock, told the United States Senate 25 years ago when it was planning to expand NATO's eastward, that this would be the greatest blundering of the American foreign policy since the end of the Cold War.
I think that in summary, the United States fears a resurgent Russia. The United States is using its religious aspects to push this [Western Catholicism versus Eastern Catholicism), and the United States wants a pretext for war, or at least if not a war, the limited military conflict, and is doing its best to encourage the Ukrainians by sending them weapons to drive the Donbass inhabitants out of there into Russia. I've seen articles saying that the Russians should be prepared for 700,000 refugees from Donetsk and Lugansk.
Kiev Seeks to Clear Donbass of Russian-Speaking People, DPR Says, Citing Intercepted Military Plan
Americans don't care about that. They don't care about Yemen and the Saudi war there. They don't care about the Afghans, nearly 20 years of American war and occupation in there. The United States divides the world up into people it likes and people it doesn't like. And while they talk a lot about human rights, when it comes down to it, there aren't any in the American foreign policy. It was the United States that was driving and coordinating refugees from Southwest Asia and North Africa as a result of its wars in Europe to destabilize Europe and split Germany away from Russia. So I think that human rights are basically all talk when it comes to the United States. They haven't done anything about landmines. They haven't done anything about health care in their own country. They do nothing about people in poorer parts of the world except talk . . .

Comment: A Russian reader writes: "This is 1939." I fully understand the analogy. The newly born Polish state, sponsored by Britain, was provoking Germany by massacring about 5,000 German civilians (Volksdeutsche) in Poland. Germany had to intervene to end these atrocities. It was a British trap, but the Germans had no choice. Then came the period of the "strange war." No one supported Poland, but the provocations against Germany continued. It all ended in WWII. Now it is enough to replace two of the mentioned countries with two others to see what is happening now. In the new situation everything happens according to the same scheme. The analogy would be perfect if Russia tries to negotiate with USA/Britain in the next few years (remember Rudolf Hess's flight to Scotland in 1941), and then invades China shortly afterwards. However, this will never happen for many reasons. VP is not AH, and Russia today is different from Germany in many ways. Nevertheless, very dark times are coming for Europe and the whole world.
And from the USA: "Today, all that the Pentagon, along with its loyal supporters in the executive branch, including President Biden and the bureaucrats in the State Department, and along with its loyal acolytes in the mainstream press, has to do is sit back and watch Russia squirm. If it invades Ukraine, it will be portrayed as the supreme aggressor nation, which will then be used to justify the continued existence of the US national-security establishment and NATO, along with ever-increasing budgets, power, and influence for the US 'defense' establishment. It Russia declines to invade, NATO absorbs Ukraine and the Pentagon installs its military bases, troops, missiles, and tanks on Russia's border, thereby ensuring a state of constant tension and crisis, which, once again, ensures ever-increasing taxpayer-funded largess for the national-security establishment, its Cold War dinosaur NATO, and the entire US 'defense' industry that feeds at the public trough" Full story: lewrockwell.com.
Eyewitness Reports indicate Ukrainian Army fired First Shots in War with Russia
February 24, 2022 — Western Media did not report that the population in Eastern Ukraine had been begging Vladimir Putin to send Russian troops to save them from American-backed invaders and Neo-Nazi militias. Russian forces launched "special military operations" in Ukraine on Thursday morning, including cruise and ballistic missile attacks targeting infrastructure near major cities such as Kyiv, Kharkiv, Mariupol and Dnipro, according to media reports. Russian president Vladimir Putin said that he did not intend to occupy Ukraine but wanted to "demilitarize and de-nazify Ukraine."
Russia reported on Monday that it had captured a Ukrainian soldier and killed five others after they crossed into Russian territory in Rostov, just over the border with Ukraine. Several hundred American mercenaries were also reported to have arrived in Ukraine in the last week. Lancaster's report is corroborated by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) maps, which show that shellings that violate ceasefire arrangements have indeed been carried out mostly by the Ukrainian government.
A person with the skill and ambition to fight their way out of the government-imposed ignorance to which the West is subjected could, with a herculean effort of will, dig up all the information necessary to gain an objective overview of the numerous ways the US Establishment has deceived its citizens time and time again since the 1800s for the purpose of wresting illicit gain from foreign countries and even from citizens of the US, and for the purpose of excusing inexcusable wars and sanctions on people who are absolutely not the enemies of the American people. But if you don't feel up to a Herculean effort of will, here is a rather complete catalog of deceptions in the MSM that led to war or other disasters.

The US has lost Global Power, and is now just Faking It
February 25, 2022 — (first published in April, 2018). It's a hard job being a global hegemon and the world's sole superpower. You have to keep the entire planet in line. Every country needs to be taught its place, and kept there, by force if need be. Now and again a country or two has to be conquered or destroyed, just to teach others a lesson. Plus you have to relentlessly meddle in other countries' politics, rigging elections so that only US-friendly candidates can win, run regime change operations and organize colored revolutions. Stop doing this, and some countries will start ignoring you. And then the rest will quickly realize that you are losing control and go their separate ways while ignoring you . . .
On March 1, 2018 president Putin unveiled Russia's new weapons systems against which the United States is defenseless and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Previously, the plan was to surround Russia with military bases and missile batteries, then launch a preemptive first strike, destroying its ability to retaliate and forcing it to capitulate. This plan has now conclusively failed, and a US/NATO attack on Russia is once again assured to be an act of suicide. Worse than that, even limited military confrontations are now mostly unthinkable, because Russia can now inflict unacceptable damage on US/NATO forces from a safe distance and without putting any of its own assets at risk. If Russia won't attack and the US/NATO can't attack, then how likely is a war?
The new weapons systems have made it possible to start ignoring the US. It is still important to maintain a credible military posture, but politically the US is no longer in control, and neither are the  global bases [in at least 80 countries worldwide] on which it has relied. Instead, what we are seeing is the reemergence of nation states, and even of empires.
The political future of Syria is being decided by Russia, Turkey and Iran, with no useful input from the United States at all. Significantly, whereas Russia and Iran are in categories of their own as far as the US is concerned, Turkey has been a US ally and the second-largest armed force in NATO. The fact that Turkey is no longer eager to please the Americans is quite telling.
Except during the strange and tumultuous twentieth century during which the US briefly flashed across the world stage, these three countries went by different names, which all ended in "empire": the Russian Empire, the Ottoman Empire and the Persian Empire. Of these three, the Russian and the Ottoman empires were heirs to the Holy Roman Empire, whose eastern half, with its capital Constantinople, went on for centuries after Rome had turned into a depopulated ruin and a dark age had descended on Europe.
After Constantinople fell to the Turks and Islam took over the region, the center of Orthodox Christianity migrated north to Moscow. Now add China, or the Chinese Empire if you like, which is now aligned with Russia, and complete the picture: all of the greatest and most ancient Eurasian empires have come back and are talking and cooperating, while the has-been upstart on the other side of the planet isn't even invited . . .

Comment: Mainland USA will be invaded perhaps months from now, and it will surrender as the Prophet said, "The only sensible thing there is to do is surrender. The Pentagon would surrender; the nation would surrender" (58-0618, Handwriting on the Wall, par. E-53). Then about five years later NATO will abandon the USA and ally with Russia as prophesied in Daniel and Revelation. Likewise the self-styled Jews will soon abandon Israel, and then Jacob's children will return to the Land of their Covenant for redemption.
God's Prophet William Branham said, "God told Balaam, and he was a prophet first; He told him, "Don't go down." But the influence of these other men caused him to do it contrary to what God said, and it becomes a curse instead of revival. Oh, sure, he got down there and taught the people, say, "Now wait! You know what? We are Moabites . . . Lot's daughter is our queen. She is our origination. We're all of one blood . . . All of us denominations are the same . . . Why, your peoples is like my people. We can intermarry, one among another, so we can have a real ecumenical council (Daniel 2:43). See? All of us can get together and come back to the original thing again".
God cursed the thing. That sin never was forgiven Israel. It stayed with them the rest of their days. It never was forgiven. They perished in the wilderness with it. That's right. Because they didn't take God's provided way by His a vindicated way of doing it.
Notice, this thing that they did caused Israel to die the death, in the wilderness. And Jesus said, "They're every one perished and gone" (John 8:49). Watch who it was stood with Moses back there in the program, Joshua and Caleb.
Notice again, here is David, what he done. And when he did, what did it do? It caused death to strike a sincere person . . . This thing that David done, without consulting Nathan and getting the Word of the Lord for it, it caused death to strike sincere people. Yes, sir. He put his hand forth, which had been living in the presence of the ark; it come out of his house. And the ox stumbled, and the ark was falling.
They had already done one thing wrong, two things wrong. First, they never consulted Nathan. The next thing they did, they went down there by not consulting the Word of God. Which, Samuel was the Word in that day . . . And he never consulted the Word of the Lord. Then, when they did, they went contrary to the Word of God. And here this good man, that had been caretaker, he was a bishop, thought, "Well, here, I don't want God to be let down," so he put his hand on the ark . . . he wasn't a Levite, and he died. Three things!
Now think real hard, and watch what the denominations has done today. See, they've turned It down, called It "false doctrine." See? Look where they're at. They'll get their ecumenical council, all right. Called It "mental telepathy," when God Himself vindicating It to be the Truth, and proving It's the Truth (Revelation 3:15-20). "Oh, they're just a little bunch of nitwits up there . . . don't know what they're talking about".
That's right, we don't. But we just say His Words, and He knows what He's talking about, see. I can't explain It, nobody else can, but He proves It.
Now notice. A many a sincere believer today, that comes to Christ, wants to come with all of his heart, is killed spiritually the same way. Many sincere man go to the Catholic church and wants to become a Christian, go to the Methodist, the Baptist, church of Christ, and even the Pentecostals, see, and wants to become a Christian, put his hand on it, join up with them (I Chronicles 13:9-10). And when David saw this thing happen, it woke him up. Don't wake up too late out there, brother. He seen that death had hit.
Show me the results. What has this so-called revival, getting people back in the churches, done to the nation, to the body of believers? It's nothing but made new organizations and denominations, all the way along, more members and so forth. Is the nation better? They said they was going to . . . "America. God bless America. It's a nation, it's a Christian country".
Its 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. 128-137).
God's Promise of Restoration
Joel 1:1-4, "The Word of the Lord came unto Joel . . . Hear this, you old men (with long memories), and give ear, you inhabitants of the land. Has this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers? Tell your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation. That which the palmerworm has left has the locust eaten; and that which the locust has left has the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm has left has the caterpillar eaten".
Brother Branham said, "I want to bring it over a little farther, that's a dark picture to start a text on; let's begin thinking before we can see . . . many of you people here are agriculture men who raise crops, and lettuce, and many fine things here in this valley of the sun, wheat, barley, and other agriculture. Here in the valley, is one of the most fertile valleys, I guess in the nation. And so, you'd be acquainted, knowing that what kind of a seed you put in the ground, that's what kind of a crop you're going to have".
Joel 2:25, I want to base my thoughts now on the end time; here's where he gave the promise. "I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten, and the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, My great army which I sent among you. And you shall eat in plenty, and shall be satisfied, and shall praise the Name of the LORD . . . God, has dealt wondrously with you: and My people shall never be ashamed" (54-0307A, The end Time. par. E-31 – 45; Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11).
Now, may the Lord add His blessings to the Word? Now, God bless you. And now I want you to give me your attention just for the next few minutes, God willing. I want to base my thoughts now on the end time. Brother Branham describes how in the start of the twentieth century man was not that far advanced as he was in the days of Adam and Eve, but in the past hundred years technology advanced faster than it had in the previous six thousand years.
Brother Branham was preaching in Pentecost, but God said, "I will restore, saith the Lord! I will restore the apostolic doctrine for Christ's end time Bride".
"I've been studying the early Church. And I watched the way that those anointed men prepared the House of the Lord, and the order of the Lord's worship in the House, and it struck me real, real good. And I preached here sometime ago, and upon the subject of Joel 2, "I will restore all the years that the palmerworm eaten, and the caterpillar, and cankerworm, and so forth." And I begin to study on that, about what these men did, and the way that they taken care of the Church that God had left them overseer.
Now we're going to start off with the early Church, and just bring it for about five minutes now, down to what they did, and then I can show you the vision that I have for the future. Now, at the beginning, the Church was inaugurated at Pentecost. And there the Holy Spirit fell upon them, where Jesus had chosen twelve. And one of them had fallen, and they had chose Matthias to take his place. And the Holy Spirit waited until all this was in order, before it come. They had to choose one to take the bishopric of Judas that fell by transgression, to fulfill the Scripture.
And I believe that all these things has a time of lingering, waiting, but it's waiting for a time for the Scripture to be fulfilled, till everything gets right, everything in order, waiting. Many times we get impatient, like a child. We get great anticipations, and many times jump way ahead, and that just hinders the work, until the work gets caught up. See? We must just move reverently, have a purpose in heart that God, if He would desire to use us in such-and-such, but wait till He makes the opening, 'cause He has to go ahead of us.
Remember David going to battle that night? He was wary about that fight, and he lay under those mulberry trees until he heard the Lord in the rumbling of the leaves going before him. Then he went with courage, because he knowed that God had gone before him. And if we'd only do that, brethren, knowing the battle must come, but we must wait till we see the hand of God going before us, to make a way.
Now, I notice that how the churches, the evangelism started scattering out everywhere. And then we'll take, for instance, the Paul becoming a great missionary to our people. We find out that he went about, wherever the Lord led him, and he established a church. And it was a new Faith. The churches of those days, like in Asia Minor, all throughout Europe, they didn't believe that Message. And when he had to preach the Message and many was converted to It, then there was no one . . . If he left the people in that condition, they would wander right back to their pagan gods, and into Judaism, and whatever more, because the people had no one to teach them. The converts, they had no place to go, so Paul established churches in different parts of the country" (62-0601E, Taking Sides with Jesus, par. 22-26).
Which, we realize, in Revelations, it's just one, two, three chapters to the Church. The Church goes up, in the 4th chapter. It does not return anymore till the 19th chapter, that's after the Tribulation Period when God calls out the Jews.
And like Enoch, he went up before one drop of rain ever hit the earth. He was gone, and then the tribulation set in. See? Noah was in the ark before any tribulation set in. Lot was out of Sodom before any tribulation set in. See? And the Church will be gone before any Tribulation Period.
During the Tribulation the sleeping virgin will be hunted down by the dragon, and spurts water from his mouth, which means, "multitudes of people," armies that will search down and take this woman, remnant of her seed, and will kill her. Now, that will be in the Tribulation Period. But the Church will go Home. Now, if that would take place tomorrow, it wouldn't hinder us from just keeping on today. Let's make today count" (ibid, par. 55-57).
"But what about the true seed, it will happen as we have said. The people of God are being made ready by the Word of Truth from the messenger to this age. In her will be the fullness of Pentecost for the Spirit will bring the people right back to where they were at the beginning. That is "Thus saith the Lord" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 379:1).
Now Brother Branham "brings it over a little further to the end time" in Joel 2:1, "Blow ye the trumpet." This is a call to the priests who must sound a signal of alarm in Zion itself, the stronghold of the kingdom, the Holy City, the place which God chose to put His Name there, typing His earthly Bride, New Jerusalem. The trumpet was to arouse the inhabitants of the land and to apprise them that an event of terrible magnitude was at hand. This will be Israel's Seventh Trumpet signaling the close of the Gentile dispensation at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal calling our "Mount Zion showdown." "The sun turned into darkness, and the moon to blood" as Joel prophesied in verse 31 "before the great and terrible Day of the Lord," which is yet future. Joel is the oldest of the Minor Prophets and his prophecy most probably falls between 860 – 850BC. Four hundred years later Malachi 4:5, 6b prophesied that God would send a prophet anointed with the Spirit that endued Elijah, Elisha and John the Baptist "to restore the heart of the God's elect children back to the faith of their apostolic fathers." Thirty years after Christ's death and resurrection Matthew 17:11 made the same prophecy and in 1909 William Branham was born and fulfilled his calling in 1965.
In 787BC Amos 3:6-8 prophesied, "Shall a trumpet be blown in the City [of Jerusalem], and the people not be afraid? Shall there be judgment in a city, and the LORD has sent done it? Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. The lion has roared, who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken, who can but prophesy?" The Lord could not open the Seven Seals and reveal their unwritten mystery nor sound the Seventh Trumpet, manifest the Sixth Seal, raise the sleeping Church Age saints, and translate Christ's end-time Bride without first revealing His secret to His servants the prophets.
"Sound an alarm in My holy mountain", Joel repeats the warning in varied expressions, in order the more to impress people's hearts and stir them to repentance. Even "the holy mountain" of God was to echo with alarms; the holiness, once bestowed upon it, was to be no security against the judgments of God; indeed "judgment must begin at the House of God," I Peter 4:17. The alarm blown in Zion would spread terror to all the inhabitants of the land who were in fear, to repent. The Church of Christ is foretold in prophecy under the names "Zion" and the "holy mountain", New Jerusalem, the "stone cut out without hands . . . that became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth," Daniel 2:34-35. Of which, it is said, "Come and let us go up to the Mountain of the Lord, to the House of the God of Jacob," Isaiah 2:3. And Paul says, "you have come to Mount Zion and to the City of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels," Hebrews 12:22. The Seventh Trumpet will sound in Zion, signaling the end of the Gentile dispensation, the Day of the Lord, the manifestation of the Sons of God, and the first resurrection. Then two prophets will be anointed to preach the Seven Trumpet mysteries to Israel.
Words are a rule for all times. The judgments predicted by Joel represent all judgments to the end of time; the conduct prescribed on their approach, is a pattern from the Old Testament to the Church at all times: one who burns with zeal for God, and truly loves his brethren, must say with Jeremiah 14:17, "Let my eyes run down with tears night and day, and let them not cease, for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very grievous blow." Both the lying prophets and the people who believe them shall perish.
Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: "We should be troubled when we hear the Words of God, rebuking, threatening, avenging, as Jeremiah said, "my heart within me is broken, all my bones shake, because of the Lord and because of the Words of His holiness," (Jeremiah 23:9). Good is the trouble by reason of which people, weighing their sins, are shaken with fear and trembling, and repent for the Day of the Lord is at hand.
"Be patient; grudge not one against another, brethren, lest you be condemned: behold the judge stands before the door. Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the Name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience," James 5:8-10. By divine appointment the Day of the Lord avenges the wrongs done to the Lord through the disobedience of His people.
Joel 2:3-11, "The Day of the LORD comes, for it is nigh at hand; a day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: there comes a great people and a strong; their likes have not been seen before, nor will they ever be known again throughout the generations of the world. A fire devours before them; and behind them a flame burns: the land is as the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; and nothing shall escape them. Their appearance is that of horses; and they run like war horses. As with the rumbling of chariots, they leap on the tops of mountains, like the crackling flames of fire devouring the stubble, as a mighty people set in battle array. Before them the peoples are in anguish: all faces grow pale."
"They shall charge like warriors; like commandos they shall scale the wall; they shall march each one in his way, never breaking ranks: they don't jostle one another, each one goes in his own path: and when they burst through the defenses, they are not be halted. They leap upon the city; they run upon the walls; they climb up into the houses; they enter through the windows like a thief. The earth quakes before them; the heavens tremble: the sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars withdraw their shining: and the LORD thunders before His army: for His host is exceedingly great: He that executes His Word is powerful. For the Day of the LORD is great and very terrible; who can endure it"?
Joel is speaking of our fifty day Pentecostal Jubilee after the sounding of the Seventh Trump, the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and the Seventh Vial at the end of the Gentile dispensation (Matthew 24:9, 29; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 6:12-17; 11:15-19; 12:7-12; 16:17-19).
"The day of darkness and of gloom" will befall all outside Christ's end-time Bride naturally and spiritually. Its intensity is signified in Exodus 10:22 and Deuteronomy 4:11. It will be darker than that upon Egypt and that of Mount Sinai. It is to be understood in a literal sense for the swarms of locusts obscured the sun as changes in the orientation of earth's rotation on its own axis will cause "the sun and the moon to be dark, and the stars have withdrawn their light" (verse 10 and Exodus 10:14 ).
I contacted the US Geological Survey this week concerning the earthquake of unprecedented magnitude prophesied for California with resultant tsunamis. The geologist told me that "faulting in California is of the strike slip variety. The plate most left to right of each other and there is very little subduction occurring. Therefore, there would NOT be a tsunami generated from that kind of earthquake." I explained that the prophecy described a subduction 1,500 x 300 – 400 miles, but he could not imagine a small plate sinking and suggested that a tsunami from South America would be more likely to affect Australia's east coast than one from North America. "But he informed me that large tsunami waves can move at speeds of 800 km/hour and waves could be 35 meters high".
Let us not underestimate the prophecies of the Old and New Testaments and Brother Branham's prophecies concerning the same scriptures.
Upon Mount Sinai, without descending into the midst of Israel, God spoke the Sinaiatic revelation belonging to the past "from heaven" (Exodus 20:22; Deuteronomy 9:13). When He Who spoke to Israel descended to earth "the whole mountain quaked violently;" but He Who through God now speaks the continued revelations to us is He Who ascended to heaven. "Much less shall we escape, if we turn away from Him that speaks from heaven: whose Voice then shook the earth (Judges 5:4-5; Psalm 68:8; 114:7): but now He has promised, saying, YET ONCE MORE (for the closing Messianic epoch) I shake not the earth only, but also heaven" (Isaiah 13:6-13; Micah 7:15-17; Habakkuk; Haggai 2; Matthew 24:29; Luke 21:25-26; Revelation 12:16-18). "And this word, YET ONCE MORE, signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken (like your revelation of the fullness of the Word) may remain".
From the creation God intended and prepared for the last and soon commencing transformation of the changeable into the unchangeable, of what may be shaken into what cannot be moved (Romans 8:21; I Corinthians 15:34-58). "There remains therefore a rest (new birth and Millennium) for the people of God" (Hebrews 4:4-10; Ephesians 1:10 Colossians 1:16-20); and after the general resurrection and judgment, the renewed heavens and earth (Isaiah 65:17; 66:22). That is, Mount Zion as opposed to Mount Sinai; the heavenly Jerusalem as opposed to the literal seat of the Old Testament, and the spiritual New Testament as against "the things that are made".
Hebrews 12:28-29, "Therefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, whereby we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe: for our God of the New Testament, as well as the God of the Old Testament, is not merely a God of grace, but also of avenging justice"
Speaking of Christ's end-time Bride one year before he preached the revelation of the Seven Seals Brother Branham said, "She is now waiting for "the latter rain." That's when she produces her fruits. Then the kind of seed you have planted in your field will be the kind of crop you will reap (Revelation 22:10-11). If the denominations wants more members, that's what they're going to get; that's what they have gotten. The Pentecostals wants more Pentecostals; that's what they're going to get. Right. But the Word is going to produce sons and daughters of God. Uh-huh. Uh-huh. Right. That's coming, too. Watch. Look what that great latter rain's supposed to do, how they w1ll run over the wall, leap over, and how they'd be an army coming. Just wait a minute. The kind of crop you'll get is the kind of seed you put in your field" (62-0318, The Spoken Word is the Original Seed, par. 295).
"Lord Jesus, we are a people who are trying our best, with all that's in us, to walk in the Light of the gospel of Your great Gospel that You died to make right. We are so thankful to see, in this evil dark days that we're living now in this hour, that we see the signs appearing. O God, as it is the handwriting on the wall, we thank Thee, Lord, that we can see it and know that deliverance is close at hand. We preach, we cross the country, we see You work great signs, show Yourself daily, every year. There's not a year passes but what His Supernatural sign is striking the earth. And we see it, knowing that the great army of God marches on."
"Oh, not many in number, but what a powerful group that's got Eternal Life! Said, "They shall run through a troop and leap over a wall." Yes, the "troop" of death will have no holders to it; She'll run right through it. Leap over the "wall" between natural and Supernatural, and go into the arms of God, into that great Eternity. Lord God, we thank You for this. We know the time is approaching at hand" (63-0724, God doesn't call Man to Judgment without First Warning Him, par.188-189).
"Now remember this. Christ in the True Church is a continuation of the Book of Acts. But the Book of Revelation shows how that antichrist spirit would come into the Church and defile it, making it lukewarm, formal and powerless. It exposes Satan, revealing his works (attempted destruction of God's people and the discrediting of God's Word) right down to the time he is cast into the lake of fire. He fights that. He cannot stand it. He knows that if the people get the TRUE REVELATION of the TRUE CHURCH and what she is, what she stands for and that SHE CAN DO THE GREATER WORKS, she will be an invincible army. If they get a true revelation of the two spirits within the framework of the Christian church, and by God's Spirit discern and withstand the antichrist spirit, Satan will be powerless before her. He will be as definitely thwarted today as when Christ withstood his every effort to gain power over Him in the desert. Yes, Satan hates revelation. But we love it. With true revelation in our lives, the gates of hell cannot prevail against us, but we will prevail over them." (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 15:3).
Joel 2:12-14 might be identified with Revelation 17:1 – 18:4, calling the wise and foolish virgins OUT from Rome and her apostate (once) Protestant harlot daughter churches to maturity "in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation" for this is followed by the sound of Israel's Seventh Trump (Ephesians 3:14; Romans 8:19). We see the brief persecution that will come upon Christ's end-time Bride the spiritual arousal of the Israelites.
Joel 2:5-17, "Blow the trumpet in Zion, (not as an alarm signaling the approach of judgment, but calling a religious gathering), sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the Bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the Bride out of her pavilion. Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, "Where is their God?" (See Matthew 23:39).
"The harsh blast of the consecrated ram's horn called an assembly for an extraordinary fast. Not a soul was to be absent. Like the fiery cross, it convened old and young, men and women, mothers with infants at their breasts, the bridegroom and the bride on their bridal day. All were there stretched in front of the altar, a hearth without its sacred fire, a table spread without its sacred feast. The priestly caste, instead of gathering as usual upon its steps and its platform, were driven, as it were, to the further space; they turned their backs to the dead altar, and lay prostrate, gazing towards the Invisible Presence within the sanctuary. Instead of the hymns and music which, since the time of David, had entered into their prayers, there was nothing heard but the passionate sobs and the loud dissonant howls such as only an Eastern hierarchy could utter. Instead of the mass of white mantles which they usually presented, they were wrapped in black goat's-hair sackcloth, twisted round them, not with the brilliant sashes of the priestly attire, but with a rough girdle of the same texture, which they never unbound night or day. What they wore of their common dress was rent asunder or cast off. With bare breasts they waved their black drapery towards the temple, Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?" and shrieked aloud, "Spare thy people, O Lord!"
Here Zechariah was standing, when the Spirit of God came upon him, and he rebuked the people, and they stoned him.
The second part of this chapter is wholly occupied with God's promise to Judah, implying that the day of fasting and prayer had been duly observed, and His promise is God's answer to His people's penitential prayer. Renewed fertility is promised with an abundant harvest against desolation in Joel 1:10-11.
Brother Branham explained that "the Palmerworm, locust, cankerworm and caterpillar that plagued Israel under the Old Testament were four stages of the same bug, and type the organized worldly church systems of Judaeo-Catholicism, Lutheranism, Methodism, and Pentecostalism under the New Testament. The Bride Tree doesn't bear its fruit first in the bottom branches that were all pruned off in organizations. It's in the top part where "I will restore, saith the Lord. I'll send forth the evening Light, and It will bring back the Word, making it manifest (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:27-28). I will restore all that I've promised." The same Holy Spirit will bring and bear the same signs. I'll have an Easter, a resurrection for the Bride, the same as I had for the Bridegroom".
Four death messengers killed that Tree. That right? What was it? Palmerworm, locust, cankerworm, caterpillar. Is that right? ["Amen."] Four messengers of Roman devils, dogmas, killed that Tree. One took Its fruit; one took Its leaves; one took Its bark; one took the Life. Is that right? ["Amen."] Four messengers of dogmas killed the Tree, all but the roots . . . And four messengers of Life restore the Tree. Do you get it? Amen. For God said, "I will restore It." He's going to restore It. How? By four Life messengers . . . What was the first? Martin Luther, justification. What was the second? John Wesley, by sanctification. What was the third? Pentecost, with the restoration of the gifts, the Holy Ghost, baptism of the Holy Ghost. What was the fourth? The Word. What? The Word. There were four great prophets.
One of them, Martin Luther, he began to shine a Light. There was a little Light, just a very small strength, of justification. Along came Wesley, stronger, sanctification . . . stronger than him, Pentecostal, the baptism of the Holy Ghost, in another great prophet. See? But in the last days, of Malachi 4, Elijah is to come with the very Word. "The Word of the Lord came to the prophet" (II Peter 1:20-21). In the evening Lights, is to come forth, to restore and bring back. What? "Turn the hearts of the children back to the Faith of God." Fourth Light!
Four killers took It. Four messengers destroyed It. Four messengers of death took It away, in dogmas. Four messengers of righteousness restore Her back again.
"Prophesy, son of man. Can these bones live?" Wish we had time. I got it wrote down here, but I have to miss that. "Prophesy. Can these bones live?" What's the four stages of that coming forth of that Church? What's the four stages of Ezekiel's dry bones coming forth? But the Life only come, not when the sinew skin was on them, but when the wind blowed upon them. That's when come back that fourth Message of Life.
"I will restore, saith the Lord." Hallelujah! Glory! Praise be to God. The fourth Light is to come, that will bring forth the same signs. Watch. Justification brought back the pulp. Sanctification brought back the bark, doctrine of holiness. What brought back the leaf? What is it? Pentecostals, leaves, clap their hand, joy, rejoicing, Pentecostal.
What? The fourth was the Word, Itself. The Word made flesh, fruits of the proof of the resurrection sign that Christ has finally, after justification been planted, sanctification been planted, baptism of the Holy Ghost. Organizations died out. And Christ has again centered Himself like that cap of the pyramid. First line, justification; sanctification; baptism of the Holy Ghost; then coming of the Cap (Zechariah 4:7; Mark 12:10).
What is it? That Holy Ghost bunch being honed out so that it can fit with the same kind of ministry He had when He went away, that, when He comes back, it'll catch the whole thing in the Rapture, where the justified, sanctified, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost. That pyramid will stand again. The House of God will live again. The Tree of Life is growing again" (62-0422, Restoration of the Bride Tree, par. 500-501 - 505-514; An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 379:1 – 380:1).
For those anticipating the translation, Joel 2:23 says "be glad and rejoice in the LORD your God has given you the former rain moderately (by the revelation of the Seven Seals), and He will cause to come down for Israel the rain, the former rain (by the revelation of the Seven Trumpets), and the latter rain (for Christ's end-time Bride to manifest that we are the Sons and Daughters of God, and receive grace for translation faith) in the first month."
Israel's first month is Nisan. Nisan 1, 2022 will be April 2, 2022 while Nisan 14—Good Friday—will be April 15, 2022.
On the Day of Pentecost God poured His Spirit upon all flesh regardless of gender, age or station and the elect of Adam's race began to be baptized into Christ. From the third day after the Gentile dispensation ends, a fresh outpouring will fall upon all flesh but only Christ's end-time Bride will manifest that they are the Sons of God, and the souls of certain Israelites resident in the Land of their Covenant will be stirred. Others will manifest their true nature "for the rain falls on the just and on the unjust" (Matthew 5:45; Revelation 22:11).
"At this very moment we are in the complete fulfillment of Matthew 24:24 "insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." And who is it that shall attempt to deceive the very elect? Why, the "false anointed ones" with the spirit of antichrist in this last day. These false ones have already come in "Jesus' Name" claiming that they have been anointed of God for the last day. They are the false Messiahs (anointed ones). They claim that they are prophets. But are they one with the Word? Never. They have added to it or taken from it. No one denies that the Spirit of God manifesting in gifts is upon them. But like Balaam they all have their programs, make their appeal for money, exercise gifts, but deny the Word or bypass it for fear that a controversy might diminish their chances for greater gain. Yet they preach salvation and deliverance through the power of God, just like Judas, with a ministry imparted by Christ. But because they are wrong seed, they have a wrong spirit motivating them.
Religious? Oh my! They outshine the elect in effort and zeal, but it is Laodicean, not of Christ, for it looks for big crowds, big programs and startling signs amongst them. They preach the second coming of Christ, but deny the advent of the prophet-messenger, though in power and signs and true revelation he eclipses them all. Ah yes, this false spirit that in the last day is so close to the real, can be distinguished only by its deviation from the Word, and whenever it is caught in being anti-Word, it falls back on the one argument we have already shown to be false: "We get results, don't we? We have to be of God" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 380:1).
Joel 2:28-32 introduce the closing chapter which describes the fulfillment of the promise "I will restore," which up to this point has reference to the present and the near future, now takes a higher and wider range. It brings into view the Day of the Lord. Like Goshen in Egypt, Zion will be the only place of safety for Israel in Daniel's Seventieth Week, "the time of Jacob's trouble . . . And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the Name of the LORD before the great and the terrible day of the Lord shall be delivered: for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD has said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call". nl194.htm
