Bible Believers' Newsletter 1225
"We focus on the present Truth — what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings to all Space Cadets in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
Jesus swore that when He expounds the unwritten Seventh Seal (Revelation 8:1) which was the mystery of the voices of the Seven Thunders John was forbidden to write, it will unfold the six written Seals to the seventh angel, William Branham in 1963. This revelation of the Logos brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form through the lips of His Prophet (I Corinthians 13:10-13; Matthew 24:36). The close of the Laodicean Church Age ended the period of Christ's mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Word while the Bible was sealed. (Gk.) 'Chronos' "time was no more" as Redemption was over (Revelation 10:1-7) and a new epoch began wherein Christ's end-time Bride who was fully redeemed in Him on Calvary, will understand her position and take her place in the Body by recognizing His second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming by revelation of the Seven Seals. The nation of 144,000 elect Israelites, also fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary, will be born "in at once" when they recognize His 'parousia' late in the latter half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Isaiah 66:8; Zechariah 3:9-10).
Please welcome our guest contributing author, independent writer Edward Curtin, a former professor of sociology and theology whose work has appeared widely over many decades. His website is edwardcurtin.com. Our well-supported main article is Brother Curtin's "Only Adult Children Still Believe US Propaganda" which illustrates how the manifestation of reality is catching up with Bible prophecy.
Brethren familiar with the prophecy of Brother Branham and the Bible understand it is very late in the day. Believers and subscribers resident in the United States should at a minimum ensure they reside far away from the West Coast, and Florida in the Gulf of Mexico well before until well after this coming Easter. Those who plan to relocate from USA to a home overseas should avoid small islands and hasten to arrange ticketing and preparations for accommodation now, while it is possible to do so.

President Putin Signing Treaties on Accession of Donetsk & Lugansk, Zaporozhye & Kherson Regions
September 30, 2022 — The ceremony took place in the Grand Kremlin Palace's St. George Hall. I highly recommend you read it.

More Evidence points to US-NATO Sabotage of Nordstream
September 30, 2022 — Increasingly, there is little doubt who is behind the Nordstream pipeline leaks, now numbering four. The corporate media is lamely attempting to blame Russia for blowing up its own multi-billion dollar pipeline with its expensive cargo, but as usual, the corporate propaganda media provides no evidence to back this up.
From that oh-so-reliable news source, the Express:
The massive leak in the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines, which many suspected to be an act of sabotage, could be Russia's way of sending a horrifying threat to Europe, experts have warned. They say he has the prowess and firepower needed to damage other pipelines. Over the past few days, four leaks have been discovered along the 1,234km-long Nord Stream 2 pipeline between Russia and Germany. The pipelines, which bypassed Ukraine and Poland by transitting gas via the Baltic Sea, started leaking on Monday, which experts from Denmark and Sweden confirm occurred after strong explosions.
. . . As part of the NATO exercise Baltops, the US Navy's 6th Fleet trained in the use of underwater drones in June. Where? Just on the coast of Bornholm, right in the area of the NordStream2 leaks. Afterwards USA and GB Navy trained the UA Navy in August 22 in handling these drones . . . Dozens of Ukrainian personnel are being trained by the Royal Navy to use hi-tech crewless vehicles . . .

Comment: "With Americans now engulfed in passion for Ukraine, it wasn't surprising that President Biden proposed sending $33 billion worth of weaponry and other aid to Ukraine's beleaguered military. Nor was it surprising that Congress raised the number to $40 billion, or that both the Senate and House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly in favor. Hidden within that lopsided vote, though, was a shocker: Every single "no" vote—11 in the Senate and 57 in the House—came from a Republican.
Germany & EU have been handed a Declaration of War
September 29, 2022 — The sabotage of the Nord Stream (NS) and Nord Stream 2 (NS2) pipelines in the Baltic Sea has ominously propelled 'Disaster Capitalism' to a whole new, toxic level. This episode of Hybrid Industrial/Commercial War, in the form of a terror attack against energy infrastructure in international waters signals the absolute collapse of international law, drowned by a "our way or the highway", "rules-based", order.
The attack on both pipelines consisted of multiple explosive charges detonated in separate branches close to the Danish island of Bornholm, but in international waters . . . The Danish Minister of Defense met urgently with NATO's Secretary General this Wednesday. After all the explosions happened very close to Denmark's exclusive economic zone (EEZ). That may be qualified as crude kabuki at best; exactly on the same day, the European Commission (EC), NATO's de facto political office, advanced its trademark obsession: more sanctions against Russia, including the certified-to-fail cap on oil prices [in obeisance to Uncle Sam whose petro dollars are on the rocks – Ed].
Meanwhile, EU energy giants are bound to lose big time with the sabotage. The roll call includes the German Wintershall Dea AG and PEG/ E.ON; the Dutch N.V. Nederlandse Gasunie; and the French ENGIE. Then there are those which financed NS2: Wintershall Dea again as well as Uniper; Austrian OMV; ENGIE again; and British-Dutch Shell. Wintershall Dea and ENGIE are both co-owners and creditors. Their fuming shareholders will want serious answers from a serious investigation.
It gets worse: there are no holds barred anymore on the Pipeline Terror front. Russia will be on red alert not only for Turk Stream but also Power of Siberia. Same for the Chinese and their maze of pipelines arriving in Xinjiang.
Whatever the methodology and the actors who were in the loop, this is payback—in advance—for the inevitable collective West defeat in Ukraine. And a crude warning to the Global South that they will do it again. Yet action always breeds reaction: from now on, "funny things" could also happen to US/UK pipelines in international waters.
The EU oligarchy is reaching an advanced process of disintegration at lightning speed. Their window of opportunity to at least attempt a role as a strategically autonomous geopolitical actor is now closed.
These EUROcrats now face a serious predicament. Once it's clear who are the perpetrators of the sabotage in the Baltic, and once they understand all the life-changing socio-economic consequences for pan-EU citizens, the kabuki will have to stop. Including the already running, uber-ridiculous subplot that Russia blew up its own pipeline when Gazprom could simply have turned off the valves for good.
And once again, it gets worse: Gazprom is threatening to sue the Ukrainian energy company Naftofgaz for unpaid bills. That would lead to the end of Russian gas transiting Ukraine towards the EU.
As if all of that was not serious enough, Germany is contractually obligated to purchase at least 40 billion cubic meters of Russian gas a year until 2030.
Just say no? They can't: Gazprom is legally entitled to get paid even without shipping gas. That's the spirit of a long-term contract. And it's already happening: because of sanctions, Berlin does not get all the gas it needs but still needs to pay.
Now it's painfully clear the imperial velvet gloves are off when it comes to the vassals. EU independence: verboten. Cooperation with China: verboten. Independent trade connectivity with Asia: verboten. The only place for the EU is to be economically subjugated to the US: a tawdry remix of 1945-1955. With a perverse neoliberal twist: we will own your industrial capacity, and you will have nothing.
The sabotage of NS and NS2 is inbuilt in the imperial wet dream of breaking up the Eurasian land mass into a thousand pieces to prevent a trans-Eurasia consolidation between Germany (representing the EU), Russia and China: $50 trillion in GDP, based on purchasing power parity (PPP) compared to the US's $20 trillion.
We must go back to Mackinder: control of the Eurasian land mass constitutes control of the world. American elites and their Trojan Horses across Europe will do whatever it takes not to give up their control.
"American elites" in this context encompass the deranged, Straussian neo-con-infested "intel community" and the Big Energy, Big Pharma and Big Finance that pays them and who profits not only from the Deep State's Forever War approach but also wants to make a killing out of the Davos-concocted Great Reset.
The Raging Twenties started with a murder—of Gen Soleimani. Blowing up pipelines is part of the sequel. There will be a highway to hell all the way to 2030. Yet to borrow from Shakespeare, hell is definitely empty, and all the (Atlanticist) devils are here. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: Leon Trotsky warned that in a period of crisis "the hegemony of the United States will operate more completely, more openly, and more ruthlessly than in the period of boom." After World War I "It will slice up the markets; it will regulate the activity of the European financiers and industrialists. If we wish to give a clear and precise answer to the question of what American imperialism wants, we must say: It wants to put capitalist Europe on rations".
In preparation for it's "Special Military Operation," Russia has been introducing new weapons systems that are specifically designed to prevent "Nuclear Primacy." Among the main ones is the Sarmat ICBM, which is the world's most terrifying weapon, virtually impossible to detect and track, carrying dozens of precision-targeted huge nuclear bombs, unstoppable by any existing technology, and having a range of 18,000 kilometers or over 11,000 miles, which would cover the entire US empire. Just a few Sarmats could destroy the entire US empire, all of the US and its vassal-nations (self-described as being 'democracies' and 'independent nations'—neither of which is true).
Five months into the Special Military Operation—a summary.
Ukrainian Army War Crimes—similar to Israelis & US-backed Terrorists in Syria
September 23, 2022 — Local residents describe the perpetrators of these crimes—who have received lavish US funding—as "shameless," "scumbags" and "terrorists."
Heroic rescue workers in Donbas should be accorded rights under international law to help people without being targeted. In the more than eight years of bombing the civilians of the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics, Ukraine has committed untold numbers of war crimes. These include bombing residential areas, markets, hospitals, schools, parks—including with prohibited heavy weapons and banned cluster munitions—and, since late July, raining banned "Petal" mines down on populated civilian areas, including the very center of Donetsk, including as recently as September 7.
A lesser-known war crime is Ukraine's routine targeting of ambulances, fire trucks, medics and rescuers, and their headquarters and stations. Many of the times Ukraine bombs such heroic rescuers, it is when they are on the way, or already on site, to help civilians often themselves just bombed by Ukraine.
On August 21, Ukrainian shelling of the DPR's Gorlovka wounded twelve, including five firefighters. The day prior, Ukrainian shelling targeted an ambulance station in the LPR's Lysychansk, wounding several and damaging some of the ambulances. Eve Bartlett reports, in June 23, the Kievskiy District of Donetsk came under repeated shelling over the course of the two hours I was visiting the Emergency Services headquarters there. On the grounds, I saw the remnants of a "Hurricane" missile from a previous Ukrainian attack . . . Full story: covertactionmagazine.com
Only Adult Children Still Believe US Propaganda
by Edward Curtin © 2022 all rights reserved
It should now be quite clear to any reasonable person that the Biden administration is hell-bent on destroying Russia and will risk nuclear war in doing so. It has already started World War III with its use of Ukraine to light the final match. The problem is that reasonable people are in very short supply, and, as Ray McGovern recently wrote in "Brainwashed for War with Russia," the Biden administration and their media lackeys.
. . . will have no trouble rallying Americans for the widest war in 77 years, starting in Ukraine, and maybe spreading to China . . . Most Americans are just as taken in by the media today as they were 20 years ago, when they were told there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. They simply took it on faith. Nor did the guilty media express remorse—or a modicum of embarrassment.
Many good writers—all of whom are banned from mainstream media—have made clear why corporate media propaganda about the US/NATO war against Russia via Ukraine is false and egregiously dangerous. The government of the USA is led by morons in the demonic grip of the "The US Should Rule the World" ideology. It is nothing new.
I don't wish to debate the facts, for that is a fool's game created to suggest there is something to debate. For the evidence is clear, except to the public in the grip of propaganda-induced ignorance or those elites who never learned from the ancient Greek goddess Nemesis that dark Furies will destroy those who in their hubris push the limits. The Biden administration has already done that, while President Biden mutters inanities as if he were a mafia boss wandering the streets in his pajamas and slippers. The recent sabotaging of Nord Stream 2 is another example of the treacherous road we are traveling, as Diana Johnstone makes clear in her recent article, "Omerta in the Gangster War."
For years, the US-run NATO has moved military forces and bases into countries encircling Russia. This includes weapons that can very quickly be converted to nuclear use. This, as I've pointed out before, is tantamount to Russia doing the same in Mexico and Canada, and let's add Cuba as well. We know what the US response would be, but when President Putin and his government objected and said this is a betrayal of previous agreements, he was dismissed as if he were a child making things up.
In 2014, when the US engineered a coup in Ukraine, bringing into power neo-Nazi elements, and Russia protested this coup on its western border, Washington mocked such concerns. Every time Russia has complained about such provocative moves, the US has dismissed them as inconsequential. [America is guilty if Americans don’t Prosecute Obama].
For years the US has supported the Ukrainian killing of the Russian speaking peoples of eastern Ukraine, and finally, when Ukraine had amassed forces to invade the Donbas region, the Russian government had had enough and sent troops into the region to defend this area. Thus the hypocritical West played at outrage that what they had created was finally backfiring. Russia was cast as the guilty party for invading Ukraine. And now a full-fledged US war against Russia is out in the open and it will become more dangerous as it continues. Nuclear annihilation becomes a very real possibility as the Biden administration continues to push the envelope.
There will be no end to the war in Ukraine because the US is intent on doing everything in its power to try to bring Russia to its knees. It is madness on its face, but then insane people are in charge. In this process, everyone is expendable, friends, foes, and anyone who stands in its way, including the US's supposed European allies whose leaders seem intent on destroying their own countries.
Perhaps ironically—but I think not, as a knowledge of history confirms—the volte-face of the American liberal class with its promotion of the new Cold War, censorship, the CIA, and FBI and the so-called progressive Democratic politicians in the US congress, including Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, embracing and voting for war with Russia via Ukraine, should be no great surprise. These people, and their Republican counterparts, with rare exceptions here and there, live on desolation row and flip when so ordered. But "nobody has to think too much about Desolation Row," in Dylan's words, because it's the social disease we inhabit, and like fish in water, many know nothing else.
On a similar note, Ray McGovern has also recently reminded those who pay attention to him that The New York Times, as is its tradition, is promoting the US war against Russia just as it did with the Vietnam War in the 1960s. Little changes is his theme, no apologies are ever offered, and the readers of the most famous American newspaper and CIA conduit are asked to swallow daily doses of propaganda that are so egregiously obvious that only children would be fooled. Sadly, the United States has become a country of children, Babes in Toyland who never realize that at the end of the plot the gun is reversed and is aimed at them. And it's not funny.
A century ago in the years before World War I, American progressive intellectuals, as Stuart Ewen writes in PR: A Social History of Spin:
. . . had espoused the Enlightenment dictum that people—at least middle-class people—were essentially rational, capable of evaluating information and then making intelligent decisions. In the context of the CPI [the US, Committee on Public Information, a large propaganda apparatus set up in April 1917 by President Woodrow Wilson to sell the American entry into the war against Germany as necessary to 'Make the World Safe for Democracy,' whose members included Edward Bernays, the propagandist and so-called father of public relations] 'public opinion' became something to be mobilized and managed; the 'public mind' was now seen as an entity to be manufactured, not reasoned with.
Faith in reason was abandoned in favor of psychological manipulation of emotion and the use of unreason—the "night mind"—which became the template for future propaganda and the application of psychological techniques, a forerunner of the CIA's MKUltra and Operation Mockingbird. As the crackdown on dissent increased with passage of the 1917 Espionage Act (under which Julian Assange is falsely charged today) and then the Sedition Act in 1918, many so-called progressives embraced the authoritarian imposition of state controls on dissent, just as they do today. An important exception was Randolph Bourne, who in 1917 castigated these turncoats in his blistering essay, "War and the Intellectuals." "Socialists, college professors, publicists, new-republicans, [and] practitioners of literature," he wrote, "had assumed the iniquitous task of 'riveting the war mind on a hundred million of the world's people.'" Today such people debate whether they should be called liberal or progressive. I say, call them warmongers of the lowest order.
I remember when I was an impressionable child and television had only a few channels. This was in the years between the Korean War and the one against Vietnam. There was a movie that was repeated on television regularly: Yankee Doodle Dandy, starring the amazing performer Jimmy Cagney as George M. Cohan, the Irish-American composer/lyricist/playwright, who, in the years before WWI was known as the man who owned Broadway and whose statue stands in Times Square in New York City.
Child that I was, I saw the film many times and was mesmerized. My emotions rose with every viewing. My heart strings vibrated to the tunes of "Over There" and "You're a Grand Old Flag." I marched proudly to WWI with Cagney/Cohan. This was a movie that appeared in 1942 to promote the WWII war effort by using the lies about WWI to do it. But oh what fun! And the stirring songs—fodder for a child. And this was before the CIA completely owned Hollywood.
Yet I grew up. I am no longer a child. I have studied and seen through the propaganda of The New York Times, CNN, the Washington Post, Fox News, The Guardian, Hollywood, etc.
Many of those I know have not. They believe in the unbelievable. They still live in what Jim Garrison called the "Doll's House" and accept what Harold Pinter termed "a vast tapestry of lies." Pinter said in his 2005 Nobel address what has not changed an iota since about the US's murderous foreign policy:
It never happened. Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn't happening. It didn't matter. It was of no interest. The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them. You have to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It's a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis.
When I was a child, I was hypnotized by "Yankee Doodle Dandy."I've grown a bit. McGovern and Pinter are right; little has changed—Vietnam, WWI, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Yugoslavia, Somalia, Iran, Nicaragua, El Salvador, China, etc. And of course, Russia, always Russia, at whose heart the weapons are always aimed, fiendish Russia that must be destroyed to make the world safe for the predators that pose as lovers of democracy and international law.
When President Kennedy, deeply chastened by the Cuban Missile Crisis of October 1962, spoke about real peace and democracy at American University on June 10, 1963, he was the last American leader to recognize that international relations had to undergo a radical change, especially in the nuclear age. Demonizing other countries had to give way to dialogue and mutual respect. He said:
What kind of peace do I mean? What kind of peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children—not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women—not merely peace in our time but peace for all time.Five months later the CIA made sure his voice was stilled. Such sentiments have been verboten ever since.
Only children still believe the America propaganda and its war machine. nl1225.htm
