Bible Believers' Newsletter 1222
"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.
It's time to remember 9/11; this year we learn the real reason why the United States invaded Afghanistan, and once again Jewish former President Obama is lying in hopes of persuading us to believe that Osama bin Laden was assassinated under his orders ten years after his natural death and burial. The US Navy Seals sent to kill bin Laden were assassinated in their helicopter because dead men tell no lies. The other news items are informative and expose more lies. Our main article is "Israel's Third Trumpet."
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
How many Years has the US been at War?
December 22, 2021 — The US has only been at peace for 17 years total since its birth . . . since the United States was founded in 1776, she has been at war during 229 out of her 246 calendar years of existence as of 2022. In other words, there were only 17 calendar years in which the US did not wage any wars . . . No US president truly qualifies as a peacetime president. Instead, all US presidents can technically be considered "war presidents." The US has never gone a decade without war. The only time the US went five years without war (1935-40) was during the isolationist period of the Great Depression . . . Full story: washingtonsblog.com
Comment: In my lifetime, the United States has overthrown or attempted to overthrow more than 50 governments, mostly democracies. It has interfered in democratic elections in 30 countries. It has dropped bombs on the people of 30 countries, most of them poor and defenceless. It has attempted to murder the leaders of 50 countries. It has fought to suppress liberation movements in 20 countries (johnpilger.com).
Who is Osama Bin Laden?
September 11, 2001 — Al Qaeda was a creation of the CIA. Osama bin Laden had been recruited by the CIA . . . during the Soviet-Afghan war "ironically under the auspices of the CIA, to fight Soviet invaders" . . . Motivated by nationalism and religious fervor, the Islamic warriors were unaware that they were fighting the Soviet Army on behalf of Uncle Sam. [As Hitler was fighting Russia in behalf of Britain and France, and today, NATO and Australia are fighting for the criminal Ukraine so that the Jew's City of London, their Judaeo Roman Catholic false church and Wall Street might conquer and steal Russia's resources – Ed).
Since the Cold War era, Washington has consciously supported Osama bin Laden, while at same time placing him on the FBI's "most wanted list" as the World's foremost terrorist. While the Mujahideen are busy fighting America's war in the Balkans and the former Soviet Union, the FBI—operating as a US based Police Force—is waging a domestic war against terrorism, operating in some respects independently of the CIA which has—since the Soviet-Afghan war—supported international terrorism through its covert operations.
In a cruel irony, while the Islamic jihad—featured by the Bush Adminstration as "a threat to America—is blamed for the terrorist assaults on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, these same Islamic organisations constitute a key instrument of US military-intelligence operations in the Balkans and the former Soviet Union. Truth must prevail, Osama bin Laden was on dialysis in Islamabad's Military Hospital on 9/11; he died in December 2001. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: Lest we forget, one day before the 9/11 attacks [as well as on the morning of 9/11, the dad of the sitting President of the United States of America, George Herbert Walker Bush was meeting none other than Shafiq bin Laden, the brother of the alleged terror mastermind Osama bin Laden. It was a routine business meeting on September 10-11, no conflict of interest, no relationship to the 9/11 attacks which allegedly were carried out on the orders of Shafiq's brother Osama, no FBI investigation into the links between the Bush and bin Laden families . . . (globalresearch.ca. The real reason behind the US invasion of Afghanistan).
Remembering our Friends on 9/11
September 9, 2022 — The first world leader to call President George W. Bush after 9/11 was Vladimir Putin. In fact, he had called him two days before, on September 9, to warn Bush that, based on unfolding events he had observed in the environment, he had "a foreboding that something was about to happen, something long in preparation."
Watching the twin towers being struck, Putin immediately phoned President Bush to offer his condolences and understanding. When his call couldn't reach Bush because he was on Airforce One, Putin immediately spoke to Condoleezza Rice, asking her to pass his message to Bush. The next morning, Putin reached Bush and assured him that "in this struggle, we will stand together".
Putin . . . offered total support for whatever Bush decided to do . . . during its own war in Afghanistan, it had gained detailed knowledge of the country. Russian intelligence provided a veritable map for the US, helping them navigate Kabul and the many mountains and caves. Even before 9/11, by June 2000, Russian intelligence was sharing information on the terrorist threat from Afghanistan.
Putin was still hoping, at this time, to improve relations with the US and the West . . . Putin saw the tragedy of 9/11 as a moment to show the US that a world order was possible in which Russia was a partner . . . But in return for helping the US to win the war in the same country the US had lured the Soviet Union into to lose its war decades earlier, Russia got nothing, and NATO remained committed to expanding east . . . and right up to Russia's border . . . On 9/11, Jiang Zemin, the president of China, was watching the terrorist attacks on TV. It took him less than two hours to call Bush to offer his sympathy and his support . . . China offered intelligence sharing and minesweepers. They even allowed the FBI to set up an office in Beijing . . . Iran immediately sided with the US against the Taliban and al-Qaeda. The reformist president, Seyyed Mohammad Khatami, wanted to improve relations with the US and, like Russia and China, saw the tragedy as an unfortunate opportunity to prove their partnership and friendship . . . Iranian diplomats were secretly meeting with US officials as early as October 2001 to plan the removal of the Taliban and the creation of a new government in Afghanistan . . . In return, like Russia, Iran got less than nothing: all the US gave them was a membership in the Axis of Evil . . . Full story: antiwar.com
Comment: Poland's Deputy Defence Minister Marcin Ociepa said that Warsaw sees "the danger of war with Russia" in next three to ten years and needs to use this time to rearm, "no matter the cost" . . . Poland wants to show that it is on the front lines in the fight against a supposedly "aggressive Russia" and position itself as a major player in Europe and NATO. Poland in this light is stressing that the EU and NATO need to strengthen its eastern borders.
The Poles freed up their stockpile of obsolete weapons by sending them to Ukraine and now expects new weapons and preferential treatment from Western countries, primarily the United States. The Poles want air defence systems, missile defence systems, potentially new ground forces, and heavy equipment, such as tanks and self-propelled artillery . . . (globalresearch.ca).
How 36 Reporters brought us the Twin Towers' Explosive Demolition on 9/11 – No Planes
July 8, 2020 — The widely held belief that the Twin Towers collapsed as a result of the airplane impacts and the resulting fires is, unbeknownst to most people, a revisionist theory. Among individuals who witnessed the event firsthand, the more prevalent hypothesis was that the Twin Towers had been brought down by massive explosions . . . First; we wanted to know just how prevalent the explosion hypothesis was among reporters. Second, anticipating that this would be the more prevalent hypothesis, we wanted to determine exactly how it was supplanted by the hypothesis of fire-induced collapse. In this article, we present our findings related to the first question.
September 8, 2022 — In this article we examine how the hypothesis of fire-induced collapse so quickly supplanted the originally dominant explosion hypothesis . . .
Comment: First came 9/11, which government used to transform itself into a police state. Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit, which the police state used to test out its lockdown powers. In light of the government's tendency to exploit crises (legitimate or manufactured) and capitalize on the nation's heightened emotions, confusion and fear as a means of extending the reach of the police state, one has to wonder what so-called crisis it will declare next. It's a simple enough formula: first, you create fear, and then you capitalize on it by seizing power.
Frankly, it doesn't even matter what the nature of the next national emergency might be (terrorism, civil unrest, economic collapse, a health scare, or the environment) as long as it allows the government to lockdown the nation and justify all manner of tyranny in the so-called name of national security. Cue the Emergency State. Terrorist attacks, mass shootings, "unforeseen economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency, pervasive public health emergencies, and catastrophic natural and human disasters": the government has been anticipating and preparing for such crises for years now. This is the slippery slope to outright tyranny . . . 9/11, the fraudulent COVID Plandemic, deadly Covid vaccines (so-called) designed to euthanaze global population and bankrupt nations in line with UN and WEF policy are related. Heads of State and others involved in these psychological operations are perpetrated on the public must be called to account.
Defense Sec. Wm Perry's Lies vs. Truth: Washington seeking 'Regime Change'? 'Putin is the Enemy, not Russia'
September 8, 2022 — William J. Perry, US Secretary of Defense during Bill Clinton's first term (ending January 20, 1997), issued an article on September 5th, "How the US Lost Russia," whose concluding paragraph opened with "There is no organic reason why Russia should be our enemy. Putin is the enemy, not Russia." In other words, he was advocating for regime-change in Russia, as America did with regards to Saddam Hussein in Iraq, Bashar al-Assad in Syria, Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, Salvador Allende in Chile, Jacobo Arbenz in Guatemala, Mohammad Mossadegh in Iran, Manuel Zelaya in Honduras, Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela, Viktor Yanukovych in Ukraine, and leaders in many other countries—virtually all of whom had good relations with Russia or the prior Soviet Government, even if not outright favorable toward Russia. (Perhaps their refusals to join the US regime's organizations against Russia constituted the main reason why the US regime sought to overthrow and replace each one of these rulers).
However, Bill Perry himself, while he was in power, as the SecDef, was working to lay foundations for America's ultimate conquest of Russia that were already building upon the foundation that Clinton's immediate predecessor, GHW Bush, had started laying when, on 24 February 1990, Bush secretly informed German Chancellor Helmut Kohl that after the Soviet Union would break up and its communism end, and its military alliance the Warsaw Pact that had been established in response to Truman's having created America's military Alliance NATO would likewise end, America and its NATO allies would continue forward with the objective now being ultimately to conquer Russia itself.
Shortly thereafter, Bush communicated essentially this same message, likewise privately, to the heads of the other key nations that were in NATO.
As regards those leaders' objections that they all, like GHW Bush's own Administration, had already promised to Gorbachev that if the Soviet Union would break up, then NATO would not be expanded "one inch to the east" (i.e., toward Russia's border), Bush told the leader, in response, that he had given this instruction to them all only in order to fool Gorbachev, but that, in fact, as regards actually delivering on that promise, they wouldn't do that: "To hell with that! We prevailed, they didn't."
In other words, he was instructing each of them that America continues actually with much the same objective that Hitler had had toward Russia in WW II: to conquer that nation, which had (and, even after the USSR's breakup, still has) by far the largest landmass (and thus the most natural resources) of any nation on Earth. This was his instruction to them, and they all followed through on it: all of them, now under Bill Clinton, and subsequently under other US Presidents, would and did vote in favor of admitting into NATO all of the former Warsaw Pact countries that they could (via bribe or otherwise) get to apply for membership into America's anti-Russian military alliance. They all did it.
However, the perfidy of Perry's lies didn't stop there. His entire article ignores that when Perry was in power (and afterward) the Harvard Economics Department, and USAID, and the entirety of the US Government, and World Bank, carried-out a program, as welcomed economic advisors to Yeltsin's Russian Government, to mire the new Russia so deeply in corruption and looting from its Government, so as to set the stage for the US ultimately to swallow it all up, with US billionaires in partnerships with their newly created Russian ones, so as to bleed the Russian people economically to death and so grab direct control of their government.
Furthermore, the IMF, which is, essentially a US Government front, was also part of this government-heisting operation. Though Yeltsin objected to Clinton's anti-Russia actions, such as Clinton's bringing into NATO the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland in 1999, it was already too late; and, then, in 2004, Bush Junior brought in Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia; and, in 2009, Obama brought in Albania and Croatia—all being violations of the verbal condition by the US, under which Gorbachev had ended the Soviet Union (i.e., that the US would NOT expand NATO towards Russia).
The US National Security Archives has an article, "The Clinton-Yeltsin Relationship in Their Own Words," and it opens: "President Bill Clinton saw Russian leader Boris Yeltsin as indispensable for promoting American interests following the collapse of the Soviet Union, often prompting him to take controversial steps to ensure Yeltsin's political survival, according to top-level memoranda of conversation[s] just released from the Clinton presidential library."
Of course, Putin was the immediate successor to Yeltsin, and as unwelcomed as Yeltsin was welcomed. Instead of trying to overthrow Yeltsin, the US Government helped to keep Yeltsin in power there.
As regards whether Putin has been better for the Russian people than Yeltsin was: Putin became Russia's leader in 2000, and here is the answer: Russia's economy sunk under Yeltsin and soared under Putin; and, starting in 2005—when regulations against alcohol kicked in—male life-expectancies also soared in Russia. Putin's job approval-ratings amongst Russians have almost always been far higher than that of America's Presidents since 2000 have been at the comparable time. This fact greatly disturbs America's 'news'-media, so that, for example, on 6 March 2016, the Washington Post headlined "How to understand Putin's jaw-droppingl high approval ratings" . . .
The US regime demands nothing less than to take over Russia. Putin fights against that; and that fact could be the best possible single explanation why his job-approval ratings are, and have been, vastly higher than those of his American counterparts have been. It's a possibility that America's propaganda-agencies (alias 'news'-media) never even so much as consider. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: The Jews' City of London, their Judaeo Roman church, Britain and France have sought to conquer Russia in the Napoleonic, First and Second World Wars; German friendship with Russia would prevent the West from attaining global hegemony. Hence Joe Biden instigated war in the Ukraine. When it comes to statesmanship and honour President Putin is the most patient and reasonable adult in the room. He needs support from Christians in the West lest he is replaced by a lesser man.
Pakistan Floods – a Warning or Pre-Emptive Geoengineering?
September 9, 2022 — If anybody thinks the recent extreme Pakistani monsoon floods and the US-instigated ousting of Pakistan's Prime Minister, Imran Khan, are sheer coincidence . . . There are no coincidences within the timeframe of UN Agenda 2030, or the Great Reset, all is connected.
During a recent conference in Switzerland on geoengineering, a professor of a top European Technical University began his presentation, by saying—here is no need explaining that the current wave of extreme heat waves throughout the Northern Hemisphere, for a record period without interruption, is geoengineered. So let us concentrate on how it's done. If heat and drought can be geoengineered, so can extreme rainfall and floods be artificially manipulated.
On 25 July 2018 Pakistan, a country with an estimated population of close to 230 million, elected the members of the 15th National Assembly and the four Provincial Assemblies, as well as their new Prime Minister. The 2018 elections were not without violence. But the results were a clear win for Imran Ahmed Khan, an Islamic socialist of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party . . . The PTI terms itself an anti-status quo movement advocating an egalitarian Islamic democracy. The party aims to dismantle religious discrimination in Pakistan. It claims to be the only non-dynastic party of mainstream Pakistani politics.
The 2018 elections made clear that the people had enough of the US-managed "status quo." Like the vast majority of the world's nations, Pakistanis were also seeking sovereign autonomy among the globe's nation states. Imran Khan was a popular Prime Minister, of the type Pakistan never had since independence, in 1947 . . . The PML(N) is allied with the US, and, therefore, Washington scored the perfect coup d'état; a pre-emptive coup, so to speak. As a consequence of this coup d'état, Pakistanis took massively to the streets. Popular unrest was growing—when the monsoon hit—an extraordinary monsoon. According to CNN reports, rainfall nationwide is 2.87 times higher than the national 30-year average, with some provinces receiving more than five times as much rainfall as their 30-year average . . . some 5 million people were directly affected, more than 1,200 people were reported killed by the flashfloods and up to a million left homeless . . .
The Washington-inspired ousting of the highly popular PM Imran Khan created massive and lasting people's uprising. If left unchecked, they may bring the former PM Khan back. What better way than deviating peoples' attention away from politics, then by creating a deadly disaster? And this in disguise of an extreme monsoon, never before experienced in Pakistan's history? Death and destruction, imposing devastating economic disaster, has never been a hindrance for the diabolical agenda of those behind Agenda 2030 and the Great Reset. And the WEF is just an executing agency for the corporate and elite financial cabal . . . Amply documented: "Environmental Modification Techniques (ENMOD) constitute instruments of "weather warfare." They are an integral part of the US military arsenal" . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Israel's Third Trumpet
Revelation 8:10-11, "The Third Trumpet angel sounded, and a great star fell from the heaven, kindled like a torch, and it fell on the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of the waters; and the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many of the men died from the waters, because they were made bitter."
The natural rivers and fountains of waters essential to mortal life type "living water" the essence of eternal Life (Jeremiah 2:13; John 4:4-26). This Trumpet judgment upon Israelites and their non-Semitic impersonators under the New Testament is typed in Exodus 15:22-23 and Numbers 33:8 where Israel and the "mixed multitude" left Egypt from Sinai and crossed the Red Sea to the Land of Midian. [Note, the map in your Bible showing the exodus is in error, this map is scriptural]. "Moses brought Israel from the Red Sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water. And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter".
These who escaped Egyptian bondage type the mostly Jewish Church that escaped the wilderness of Judaeo-Roman bondage in the Dark Ages of Thyatira and passed unawares into the Sardis Church Age of the Third Seal at the dispensation change. Under the Reformer Martin Luther "the Lord said, Because you have . . . not obeyed My Voice, neither walked therein; but have walked after the imagination of your own heart, and followed Balaamism, substituting reasoning for My Word as the Roman 'fathers' taught you, . . . I will feed this people (Israel), with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink. I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known: and then I will send a sword after them, until I have consumed them" (Jeremiah 9:12-16; 23:9-12). "Wormwood" is a perennial herb, very bitter, and is used in the manufacture of "Absinthe," a beverage more intoxicating and destructive than ordinary liquors.
The enfranchising spiritual reform of Luther's "Justification by grace through faith" was transformed from a quietly shining heavenly star into a burning torch that fell in judgment from heaven upon Shem, the "third part of the rivers [currents or spiritual tendencies] and upon the fountains of waters" or minds whence they flow. Israel rejected the Gospel trumpets of Luther and Wesley, and met natural war under the Third Trumpet. Israelites in Christian circles that rejected or corrupted these essential revelations were embittered or spiritual death under the Third Vial (Revelation 16:4-7).
Wise and foolish Israelite virgins to the Word received Luther's Message as "living water" and recognized Judaeo-Roman guesswork, infallible popes, non-existent purgatories, wax candles and penances as bitter "wormwood and water of gall." Regular Catholic Jews who paid their kind old priest "to do their religion for them" remained in spiritual bondage as if they had never crossed the Red Sea, or passed from Thyatira and Roman liturgy to Sardis and "the present Truth"—what Jesus is doing now." Luther's strict Bible doctrine required prayerful thought with reflection for revelation.
Luther's Message struck the heart of the Judaeo-Roman church to destroyed its stagnant spring and fountain, and severed its corporate ritual—creed, dogma and traditions—as when "the rivers and fountains," so necessary to life, are infected and become rather deadly than fit for use. The metaphorical waters or teachings of the universal church are made spiritual wormwood—water whose bitterness brings spiritual death to men.
Brother Branham said, "I can see another Angel come up and His name's Wormwood. He destroyed the antediluvian world with waters. He has control of the waters. He's going to do something in the last days with them: turn them all bitter" (What Think Ye of Christ, 53-1213M, E-38). The "last days" is the Messianic age of redemption and completion; it runs from Pentecost to the consummation (Genesis 49:1; Isaiah 2:2; Acts 2:17; II Timothy 3:1; Hebrews 1:2). Laodicea and the world church system ended in apostasy in March 1963, we live in the end of the "last days." He said, "Woodworm in heaven, you know, has control of the waters" (53-0831, God Talked to Moses). God will "do something in the last days" when Rome breaks her covenant with the Jewish banksters "in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week, causing the sacrifice and the oblation [they have restored] to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate" (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 13:15-18). God embittered Jews and non-elect Israelites serving the Judaeo-Roman church, exposing their idolatry by the Scriptural Truths Martin Luther revealed: He has already judged them by the Third Trumpet under the Third Seal.
In about 780BC Hosea 6:1-3 prophesied of Israel in "the last days" . . . "Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for He has torn, and He will heal us; He has smitten, and He will bind us up. After two days [each of a thousand years (II Peter 3:8)] He will revive us: in the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live in His sight. Then shall we know if we follow on to know the Lord: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth".
We are well into the third day: 780 + 2,022 = 2,802 + the residue of the Gentile dispensation, + 7 years for Daniel's Seventieth Week.
Brother Branham explained, "God takes His messenger with the elect of that Age, and lays them away asleep, then He drops a plague upon them who rejected [his Message]: a temporary judgment [or Vial pending the White Throne Judgment]."
"And then, after that is over, then it goes on, and they denominate, and bring in denominations, and start off with that man's work like of Wesley and all the rest of them, and then it gets all in a scrabble again."
"And then another mystery comes forth. Then what happens? Another messenger arrives on earth for a Church Age. See? Then when he arrives, the [Gospel] trumpet sounds. He declares war. See? And then what happens? Finally then he's caught away. And then when he's laid away, then plague falls, destroys them. Spiritual death hits the church and she's gone that group."
"Then He goes on to another one. Oh, it's a great plan until it comes to that last angel. Now, he has no certain mystery, but he gathers up all that's been lost in them other Ages, all the truths that wasn't truly revealed yet (See?), as the revelation come. Then he reveals those things in his day. If you want to read it, there it is" (63-0318, The First Seal, par. 65-68; Malachi 4:5, 6b; Revelation 10:7).
Since Calvary there has not been one elect self-styled Jew or genuine blood Israelite that has not received Jesus Messiah as their Saviour and been born-again as a written epistle of "the present Truth"—or Light for their day (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7). If you read Revelation 2 and Church History, or simply open your eyes, you will see that the Roman Catholic church was organized by non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews and pagan Emperor Constantine. Romanism is an impersonation of the Jews' Temple worship with its high priest, Nicolaitane priesthood, holy water, Jewish festivals, lectionary preaching and Pharisee, Sadducee, Herodian and Essene-like denominations. And as Pharisaism (Judaism) replaced Moses' Law and the Prophets with the Babylonian Talmud or traditions of the Learned Elders of Zion (Matthew 15:1-9), Roman creed, dogma and tradition have usurped the doctrine of the apostles and prophets of the New Testament.
Israel's Seven Trumpet mysteries will be revealed to Israel by two Hebrew Prophets in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. We don't have the interpretation but we know they will coincide with history "because the Trumpet sounds at the same time as the Seals. It's just the same thing, the church age opens, it's just the same thing" (63-0318, The Revelation of the Seven Seals, par. 130). And with the Messages of the angels to the Seven Church Ages we can place the Trumpets chronologically. The Message of each angel bid those of Adam's race—Israelite or Gentile—"Bow the knee, Jesus is coming." The non-elect did not hear or heed "what the Spirit said to the Churches" and forsook Christ's Marriage proposal, and after Thyatira the believers were mainly Gentiles. The Trumpets bring judgment upon non-elect Israelites and their impersonators while the Vials pour a plague of judgment on non-elect churchgoers.
Now let us consider the timeline of the Church remembering that Brother Branham said the early Christians "were Jewish [He meant Israelites] on up till about the time of AD606 when it come into Thyatira [and the Dark Ages] it was nearly all Jewish converts. But after the Jewish, it dropped over in here to both Jew and Gentile (but mostly Jewish). [It is worth noting that the Israelites are warned against "idolatry as a root that bears gall and wormwood" (Deuteronomy 29:18) and Catholicism is "the highest form of spiritualism there is."] But when it really come through to the Gentile age, come this side [of the Dark Ages] (See?), come Martin Luther [the angel to the Sardis Church Age with the Message of justification by grace through faith at the altar of sacrifice], John Wesley [the angel to the Philadelphian Church Age whose Message of sanctification advanced the revelation to holiness at the altar of incense in the Holy Place], and so forth. See" (Revelation Chapter 4 Part II, p. 630:263-264)?
God is a separator: a separation took place under the judgment of Israel's Third Trumpet. It was time to separate so-called Jews and non-elect Israelites from the reforming Church, His elect, since He deals with Israel as a nation and only in the Land of the Covenant. An Israelite outside the Land is without the Covenant. Christ will not turn back to Israel until after the resurrection and translation of His Bride of all Ages. Then there will be no elect Gentiles and so-called Jews, only 144,000 elect Israelites who gather to the Land of their Covenant where they will be born-again as a nation in one day, and then martyred. As our personal attendants they will meet us, their Queen, in the millennium.
In the Sardis Church Age under the Third Seal God sent and anointed His apostle Martin Luther to begin the reformation of the Judaeo-Roman system of false worship so that us Gentiles would see that from the Garden of Eden the sure foundation of salvation is by grace through the faith of Jesus Christ alone, not works of the Law or "vain repetitions" and works of the flesh as Rome claims (Romans 9:32; Galatians 2:16). "Grace" is unmerited favour and "Faith" is a clear understanding of God's revealed Word. In April 1521, Luther appeared before Holy Roman Emperor Charles V at the Diet of Worms to defend what he had taught and written. He was not permitted to defend his revelation. Charles would only accept an ironclad recantation. Luther's defiant "Here I stand; I can do no other. God help me!" shook Rome to the quicksand of her foundation. God's elect fled to faith, leaving Rome's so-called Jews, make-believers, unbelievers and non-elect Israelites.
The Third Trumpet manifest throughout the Sardis and Philadelphia Church Ages, that is, from 1520 to 1906, when Satan riding his black horse was garnering DEMON POWER. Satan "had three jurisdictions: the earth, heaven and purgatory. He is himself a trinity. That's what he's made up of, and he rides in a trinity. His power's in a trinity. His crown's in a trinity. His horse is in a trinity. That what he is? A trinity, a power of trinity, a crown of trinity, a horse riding of trinity (that's of offices) a four again (See?), a four again. All right, three stages of his ministry makes him one person, Satan incarnate, three stages of the Antichrist, false prophet, and beast, them three typing. See, now there's three types, now that makes him. God makes Himself known too, in water, blood, spirit. Makes a Christian a son of God by the Word of God. See? And these three powers makes him a devil. See? Oh, this here is water, blood, and spirit which is of God. And that's politics, religion, and demon power mixed together makes him the Devil. Christ's first coming, a mortal. He comes three times. Christ is in three. Watch how he comes, he's a four."
"Watch Christ. First coming, He come a mortal to bleed and die. Is that right? That's His first coming. The second coming is the rapture [or (Gk.) parousia Coming in W_O_R_D form through the lips of His Prophet revealing the Seven Seals until] we meet Him in the skies, immortal. His third coming, He's the incarnate God (Amen. Yeah.), God Emmanuel to reign on earth [for a thousand years of peace]. That's right. Only three . . . The fourth stage of this rider is called death. [Look what he's riding on. This pale looking, grizzled coloured horse, mixed with black, red, and white, coming into the battle, gathering his subjects from every nation under heaven]. Death means eternal separation from God. That's what death means: to be eternal separated from God . . . And now [in Laodicea], he's called by the [living creature with the face of an] eagle, Death. That's what He calls him."
"See, death is eternal separation. Remember, saints don't die. They sleep, not die. "He that heareth My words and believeth on Him that sent Me has Eternal Life." That's right. "Shall not come into the judgment but's passed from death unto Life. I am the resurrection, and Life," said Jesus; "he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die" (The Fourth Seal, par. 206-213, 310).
Revelation 6:5-6, "And when he had opened the Third Seal, I heard the third living creature [with the face of a man] say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a Voice [Christ] in the midst of the four living creatures [cherubim] say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see that you hurt not the oil and the wine." This Seal compassed the Sardis and Philadelphian Church Ages whose angels were Martin Luther and John Wesley. The Scriptural Light of their ministries pierced through the Judaeo-Roman darkness that could be felt in the Reformation of that false religious system.
Wheat and barley is the staff of natural life, ground into flour to bake bread for the well-to-do and for more humble persons. They type the Word of God which is the staff of eternal Life. Jesus said, "I am the bread of Life: he who comes to Me shall never hunger; and he who believes on Me shall never thirst" (John 6:35). [Olive] oil types the Holy Spirit and whilst natural wine stimulates the mortal spirit, its Spiritual antitype is further revelation of God's Word which stimulates the soul.
Likewise Isaiah 55:1-7 is not speaking of corporeal nourishment; he is calling the people to hear his Message and receive Spiritual food in due season, freely given by grace through faith without money and without price. By twice repeating his summons to hear he emphasizes the importance of receiving its Spiritual import. Meanwhile Rome was and is selling "Indulgences" for forgiveness of past and even future sins, charging for prayers, candles, novenas and penances.
"Ho! Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters, and you who have no money; come, buy and eat. Come; buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend money for what is not bread? And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, eat what is good, and delight yourself in abundance. Incline your ear, and come to Me. Listen, that you may live; and I will make an everlasting Covenant with you, according to the faithful mercies shown to David [eternal Life, resurrection and glorification" (Acts 13:34)].
Hearing will be the condition whereby one may partake of His grace. By His testimony to the Truth He will become also Leader and Commander of nations (Ezekiel 34:24; Daniel 9:25; Micah 5:2).
"Behold, I have made the last David [Jesus Messiah] a witness to the nations, a leader and commander for the nations. Behold, You Jesus Messiah will call a nation You do not know [us Gentiles], and nations that know You not will run to You because of the Lord Your God, even the Holy One of Israel; for He has glorified You" (John 16:5).
The last David—Jesus Messiah (Jeremiah 30:9; Hosea 3:5)—who is to be the Mediator of this grace will first of all be a witness, so that he who has a discerning ear may hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches," that is, to the wise virgins with "the Oil of the Spirit and the wine of stimulation of revelation," and to the foolish virgins who believe the "letter" but whose lamps have insufficient Oil of the Spirit to quicken the Word for their day.
Jesus is the ideal Israel (Isaiah 42 and 49) so the disciples and original apostles who received the command to preach the Gospel to all nations (Matthew 28:19-20) were Israelites through whom Israel called nations that it did not previously know, and nations that before knew nothing of Israel hastened to it (Isaiah 2:2-3). The nations run not to Israel but to the Holy One of Israel, God made flesh in Messiah.
"Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near: let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return to the Lord, and He will have compassion on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon".
Martin Luther was the angel to the Sardis Church Age (1520-1752). Sardis means: "the escaped ones;" the saints escaped Rome's clutch—Jesus said, "you have a name that you live, and are dead." Luther brought Rome's false baptism in the Titles "Father, Son and Holy Ghost" out of the Dark Age, and Methodists and Baptists, failing to see that the NAME of those three Titles or dispensation claims is Lord Jesus Christ persist in ignorance (Matthew 28:19; Luke 24:47; Acts 2:38-38, 4:12). Jesus taught that even after the Judaeo-Roman church organized in the Pergamos Church Age, the saints "hold fast My Name, and have not denied My faith" (Revelation 2:13). "One Lord, one faith, and one water baptism" (Ephesians 4:5).
Jewish authorities are well aware of the two phases of Luther's ministry: that wherein he wrote his "Jesus Christ was born a Jew" being filled with sympathy for their long unbelief which he laid on the unsympathetic attitude of the Roman Catholic church. Later while Jews assisted in translating the Old Testament he discovered them working deceitfully. Luther's study of the TALMUD became the dividing line. His second and last phase was one of warning against the self-styled Jews' Christianity and Christians. After Luther became conversant with the TALMUD and the ritual cursings of Judaism, he declared that a person who condones such blasphemies partakes of them.
In his book, "The Jews and Their Lies" he wrote: "Such a desperate, thoroughly evil, poisonous and devilish lot are these Jews, who for these fourteen hundred years have been and still are our plague, our pestilence, and our misfortune."
"I had made up my mind to write no more either about the Jews or against them. But since I learned that these miserable and accursed people do not cease to lure to themselves even us, that is, the Christians, I have published this little book, so that I might be found among those who opposed such poisonous activities of the Jews, who warned the Christians to be on their guard against them. I would not have believed that a Christian could be duped by the Jews into taking their exile and wretchedness upon himself. However, the Devil is the god of the world, and wherever God's Word is absent he has an easy task, not only with the weak but also with the strong. May God help us. Amen."
"He did not call them Abraham's children, but a "brood of vipers" (Matthew 3:7). Oh, that was too insulting for the noble blood and race of Israel, and they declared, "He has a demon" (Matthew 11:18). Our Lord calls them a "brood of vipers;" furthermore in John 8:39 and 44 He states: "If you were Abraham's children you would do what Abraham did . . . You are of your father the Devil." It was intolerable to them to hear that they were not Abraham's but the Devil's children, nor can they bear to hear this today."
"They are the real liars and bloodhounds, who have not only perverted and falsified the entire Scriptures from beginning to end, and without ceasing with their interpretations. And all of the anxious sighing, longing and hoping of their hearts is directed to the time when some day they would like to deal with us heathen as they dealt with the heathen in Persia at the time of Esther . . ."
Such scriptural truths brought to Light by Martin Luther in the early years of the Reformation of the Judaeo-Roman system of false worship would entice unconverted Jews and Israelites to cling to Rome where they were comfortable in their delusion.
John Wesley (1703 -1791) was the angel to the Philadelphian Church Age (1750-1906). Appropriately Philadelphia means "love of the brethren" for this was the great missionary Age; as in Sardis Biblical scholarship was unsurpassed. Satan was still astride his black horse garnering DEMON POWER. Through Wesley's ministry God restored the revelation of Sanctification by the Blood of Christ, setting the mind in order for holiness. As in the natural realm the life power runs through the blood which is our healing, cleansing stream, so the Spirit of Christ cleanses us of all evil by the washing of water by the revelation of the Word.
Events bearing on the papacy and papal powers followed the French revolution (5 May 1789 – 9 November 1799). The next material event after that revolution was the invasion of Italy, where Napoleon began his career of victories, and where he first acquired his fame. There can be no mistake in associating the scenes of confusion, crime, blood, atheism and pollution in the French revolution with those represented in the Third Vial poured upon the rivers and fountains, turning them into blood, and the Third Trumpet of Judgment "upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters . . . and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter." When Jewry came to drink the sweetness of the Gospel they faced Judaeo-Roman bitterness and Protestant persecutions. Whereas the source of refreshment of natural life was made sweet when the Tree of Life was added to bitter waters, here the source of spiritual life and refreshment was made bitter.
The wars in Europe that followed the French Revolution were all Papal states and territories. One has only to look upon a map of Northern Italy to see that there is no other portion of the world which would more naturally be suggested when speaking of a country abounding in "rivers and fountains of water."
Italy in general had been the land where the blood of martyrs had been shed—the land of Roman persecution, alike under paganism and the papacy—but true in a more definite sense, from the fact this was the very region where the persecutions against the Waldenses from the 11th to the 17th century—the valleys of Piedmont where the Albigenses had been martyred from the 12th to the 13th century. In the times of papal persecution these valleys had been made to flow with the blood of the saints; and it seemed, at least, to be a righteous retribution that these desolations of war, these conflagrations, and these scenes of carnage, should occur in that very land, and that the very fountains and streams which had before been turned into blood, by the slaughter of the friends of our Saviour, should now be reddened with the blood of men slain in battle.
God's temporary judgment of the non-elect church members of the Sardis and Philadelphian Church Ages under Third Vial will distinguish the foolish virgins from the un-believers to show Israel's elect to whom God will reveal the Seven Vials that neither group is His Bride, their Queen. Revelation 16:4-7, "And the Third poured out his Vial into the rivers and the fountains of the waters; and they became blood. And I heard the angel presiding over the waters saying, You are righteous, Who is, and Who was Holy, and shalt be, because You did adjudge these things. [In view of the judgments that reddened these streams and fountains with human blood the angel ascribes righteousness to God. The numbers slain were so vast the bloody stream indicated great slaughter, and such severity of divine judgment; yet the angel sees only the act of a righteous God bringing just retribution on the guilty]. Because they poured out the blood of saints and prophets, and You have given them blood to drink; they deserve it. And I heard the altar saying, Yes, O Lord the God, the Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments".
This coincides also with the account of the sounding of the Third Trumpet in Revelation 8:10-11 for Isaiah 49:26, Matthew 23:35, Revelation 2:9; 3:9; 17:6 and 18:6, 24 show the Pharisees identified with Cain and his vicarious father who, according to our Lord Jesus Christ established the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and "in her is found the blood of prophets, and of all that were slain upon the earth".
When John Wesley taught sanctification a great revival sweep the land and pulled England out from its corruption caused by Calvinism that mistaught election and predestination as fate, overriding free moral agency as if God were an arbitrary judge, and "What God is going to do, He is going to do. If He is going to save someone, they were born to be saved or they are born to be lost." This turned grace into disgrace, and the Calvinist church in England became so corrupt, they did not even believe in revivals. Wesley taught sanctification with a legalist or Armenian bent to correct Calvinism's laissez faire excess. Hence the Wesleyans were called Methodists. The self-discipline his ministry inculcated saved England from being overcome by the atheistic spirit of anarchy and revolution sweeping over Europe. His Message of Sanctification cleansed Great Britain, the United States and the English-speaking world to serve God in the greatest missionary age the world has seen.
Closing now, in Deuteronomy 29:10-29 Moses addressed the whole company present before the Lord at the tabernacle, Israelites and Gentiles, Judges, elders, men, women, children and slaves to enter into His Covenant which may bring a curse if the oath to is unfulfilled. Like God's promise the "whosoever will" of Adam's race today, there is no limit to the blessings of obedience.
"That He may establish you today for a people unto Himself." Like your marriage vows, "I will" and "I do," this aspect of God's Covenant makes God responsible for the fulfillment of the whole. "That He may be to you a God, as He has said to you, and as He has sworn to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob" (Galatians 3:26-29). Like a husband God undertakes for the people's part of the Covenant as well as His own. "By the unmerited favour of grace by faith," you (little wife) will not fail to fulfill your responsibility.
The national Covenant was made with Abraham and his seed, whereby as God engaged himself to continue the blessing of Abraham upon his posterity, so he also engaged them to the same duties which were required of Abraham. And the blessing or curse applies to our posterity, "visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation".
The summons to renewal of the Covenant made at Sinai is enforced by a fresh exposition of the evil and danger of apostasy from the Lord exemplified by idolatry with the golden calf. And God has once delivered you and me from the idolatry of Babylonian creed and dogma veiled in Christian terms. Mischief begins in the evil heart of unbelief, which inclines men to be drawn aside by their own lusts and fancies. Such are roots that bear gall and wormwood; weeds which, if not extracted, overspread the whole field. Notice the sinner is secure in sin. Though he hears the words of the curse, in his stubbornness of heart he adds drunkenness to thirst thinking himself safe from the wrath of God. There is scarcely a threatening in the Bible more dreadful than this.
"The Lord will not spare him, but in His jealousy shall burn like a torch kindled against that man, and all the curses that are written in this Book shall lie upon him, and the Lord shall blot out his name from under heaven. And the Lord shall separate him to the evil of punishment, and make him a visible and distinguished mark of his displeasure and vengeance. And the Lord shall separate him to evil out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the Covenant."
"So that the generation that your children shall raise up after you, and the stranger that shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses which the Lord has laid upon it; and that the whole land is brimstone, and salt, and burning, so that it is not sown, nor bearing, nor any grass growing, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the Lord overthrew in His anger, and in His wrath: even all nations shall say, Why has the Lord done thus to this land? . . . Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant of the Lord God of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them forth out of the land of Egypt [and out of the clutches of Rome]: for they went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods . . . and the anger of the Lord brought all the curses written in this Book upon it, and rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is now in 2020. "The secret things belong unto the Lord God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this Law".
Read what Isaiah prophesied concerning Israel and the whole earth, what John prophesied concerning Rome, and what William Branham prophesied concerning the United States of America (Isaiah 1-6; 24). This exercise was not and is not intended to interpret the revelation of the Third Trumpet, but to show its chronological place in past history, and in relation to the Church Ages, Seals, and Vials.
