Bible Believers' Newsletter 1231
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ and welcome to our little fellowship around God's unchanging Word; we always enjoy your company.
Some years after the First Woe the poet T.S. Eliot opened his famous poem "The Wasteland" with these words: "April is the cruelest month . . ." For the world and the unbeliever April 2023 will initiate seven years of cruel months, but for Christ's end-time Bride it will initiate the third stage in the threefold PROCESS Paul described in I Thessalonians 4:16. Now we are in the Third Woe engineered by the wannabe exceptional nation in behalf of the unusual suspects who don't like to be named, for the name 'em is to shame 'em. "Israel's Two Witnesses" is the title of our main article, and these two men are certainly qualified, and they have doubtless maintained a low profile in modern Israel for some time. One is Moses of old while the other is Elijah who was assumed into the Pillar of Fire without death.
If you are quick you may be able to watch a video interview of Dr. David Martin before it is taken down. We have mentioned Dr. Martin in previous issues of this Newsletter. He explains the motives and objectives of certain global manipulations of the hidden hand. We have a full house of selected items of current News as is to be expected with so much Scripture coming to pass.
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 Blackrock Investment Fund triggered Global Energy Crisis
November 16, 2022 — The energy crisis is a long-planned strategy of western corporate and political circles to dismantle industrial economies in the name of a dystopian Green Agenda. That has its roots . . . well before February 2022, when Russia launched its military action in Ukraine . . . January 2020 . . . Larry Fink set in motion a colossal disinvestment in the trillion-dollar global oil and gas sector . . . that same year Blackrock's Fink was named to the Board of Trustees of Klaus Schwab's dystopian World Economic Forum, the corporate and political nexus of the Zero Carbon UN Agenda 2030. In June 2019, the World Economic Forum and the United Nations signed a strategic partnership framework to accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. WEF has a Strategic Intelligence platform which includes Agenda 2030's 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
After his fateful meeting with Blackrock's Fink, candidate Biden announced, "We are going to get rid of fossil fuels . . ." In December 2020, even before Biden was inaugurated in January 2021, he named Blackrock Global Head of Sustainable Investing . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Techno-Authoritarianism here to stay: China & Deep State joined Forces
November 16, 2022 — No matter who runs for office, no matter who controls the White House, Senate or the House of Representatives now or in the future, 'we the people' have already lost . . . because the future of this nation is being forged beyond the reach of our laws, elections and borders by techno-authoritarian powers with no regard for individuality, privacy or freedom.
The fate of America is being made in China, our role model for all things dystopian. An economic and political powerhouse that owns more of America's debt than any other country and is buying up American businesses across the spectrum, China is a vicious totalitarian regime that routinely employs censorship, surveillance, and brutal police state tactics to intimidate its populace, maintain its power, and expand the largesse of its corporate elite. Where China goes, the United States eventually follows. This way lays outright tyranny. Full story: ronpaulinstitute.org
US Military Empire: a Visual Database. World beyond War
November 15, 2022 — The data base lists 865 US military bases worldwide categorized by country. Some physical installations are on land occupied as spoils of war. Most are maintained through collaborations with governments, many brutal and oppressive, many human beings displaced to make room for these military installations.

Russia, India, China, Iran: the Quad that Really Matters
November 15, 2022 — SE Asia at the center of international relations for a whole week vis-à-vis three consecutive summits: Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit in Phnom Penh, the Group of Twenty (G20) summit in Bali, and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Bangkok.
Eighteen nations accounting for roughly half of the global economy represented at the first in-person ASEAN summit since the Covid-19 . . . It was up to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to express what was really significant at the end of the summit . . . Simultaneous to Putin's phone call, Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan—conducting his own diplomatic overdrive, just back from a summit of Turkic nations in Samarkand—stressed that the US and collective West are attacking Russia "almost without limits".
Erdogan made it clear Russia is a "powerful" state and commended its "great resistance" . . . exactly 24 hours later Turkish intelligence cut to the chase, pointing out the terrorist bombing in the perpetually busy Istiklal pedestrian street in Istanbul was designed in Kobane, northern Syria, which essentially responds to the US. That constitutes a de-facto act of war and may unleash serious consequences, including a profound revision of Turkey's presence inside NATO . . . Full story: presstv.ir
Comment: The Bible is correct, NATO nations will eventually abandon the USA.
Amid Russian Retreat in Kherson Region, Ukrainian Offensive Operations Continue
November 14, 2022 — After the recent retreat of the Russian military in the Kherson region, the Armed Forces of Ukraine continued occupying the new settlements and secure positions on the western bank along the Dnieper River and near the city of Kherson . . . media continue to ignore the Ukrainian Nazism and atrocities against the civilians . . . glorifying Ukrainian servicemen and activists who hunt for the alleged Russian collaborators . . . innocent civilians are tortured without any trial.
Busy fighting the civilians, the Ukrainian military reportedly attempted new offensive operations in the region . . . not aimed at any military gains . . . yet another media campaign . . . a Ukrainian sabotage group reportedly attempted to carry out a landing operation near the village of Pokrovka located on the Kinburn spit . . . . was destroyed. 4 Ukrainian small vessels and about 20 servicemen . . . destroyed . . .

Russia's De-militarization of Ukraine continues. US sending Decades-Old Arms to Kiev
November 12, 2022 — Update on Russian military operations in and around Ukraine for November 11, 2022:
- Russia completes withdrawal from Kherson city to east bank of the Dnieper River;
- Ukraine has lost its last major opportunity to corner and destroy/capture large numbers of Russian forces/equipment;
- Russia continues stated process of de-militarizing Ukraine;
- US aid to Ukraine becomes increasingly unrealistic;
- Hawk missiles designed in the 1960s and unused for 2 decades are being "refurbished" for a lack of better options;
- "Avenger" systems to be sent in small numbers (4) which are essentially Stinger missiles attached to a Hummer—after training for Ukrainian operators is completed;
- Dwindling amounts of basic ammunition continue to be sent to Ukraine, prolonging the conflict, but not in quantities to even allow Ukraine to hold what it has;
- As Russian forces withdrew from Kherson city, they advanced elsewhere in southern and northern Donbas. Full story: youtu.be
Comment: "If anyone from the outside interferes in Ukraine, they should know this: If they create threats for us . . . we will retaliate immediately. We have all the tools we need to respond, and all the decisions on this (matter), have already been made." – Russian President Vladimir Putin [the only adult in the room].
There's no doubt that the retreat from Kherson was a black-eye for the Russian Army. There's also no doubt that the general who ordered the evacuation made the right decision. True, the optics are terrible, but optics don't win wars. Strategy, valor and firepower win wars. Russian General Sergey Surovikin appears to grasp that fact which is why he made the unpopular decision to retreat (youtu.be).
The good news, however, is that the Kherson public relations disaster will have no meaningful impact on the outcome of the war. Russia is still on-track to achieve all of its strategic objectives despite the pitfalls it has encountered along the way. Here's a brief recap of the Russian withdrawal from an interview with Colonel Douglas Macgregor on youtu.be: ". . . I would regard (the withdrawal) as an operational decision with short-term benefit in support of the long-term strategy of building this enormous striking power . . . The Russians no longer place any confidence in negotiations . . . No nation can be expected to live at peace when a gun is pointed at its head. That is why Putin opposed NATO membership for Ukraine, and that is why the current war is being fought.
November 14, 2022 — ISIS was one of well over one hundred terrorist militias which were organized, trained, equipped, and funded by the USA and its coalition of countries (including Canada, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Israel) willing to violate international law in attempting to overthrow the democratically-elected and sovereign government of [noble] Bashar al-Assad in Syria. The US proxy war on Syria was unleashed in March 2011 at about the same time as a similar regime change operation was initiated by the USA in Libya to unseat [the honourable] Colonel Muammar Gadaffi in Libya. A Canadian general was in command of the NATO operation that led to the destruction of that most prosperous state in Africa. A wave of disturbances swept West Asia (aka the "Middle East") and North Africa under the guise of the "Arab Spring." In this period, the US government was trying to re-organize North Africa and West Asia. It was seeking new puppets to assist in its strategic foreign policy goal of securing West Asian and North African petroleum resources, not necessarily to use them itself, but rather to control the flow of these critical resources to Europe, India, and China.
It was for this reason that the USA and UK invaded Iraq in 2003 and Libya in 2011, unleashing turmoil in West Asia and in North and Western Africa that persists to today. It was partly for this reason that the US initiated the attempted regime change operation in Syria in 2011, which is not over yet, eleven years later. All told, US wars in Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, and Iraq contributed to an unprecedentedly-large wave of millions of refugees that swept over Europe and North America in the past decade.

Not Green at All
November 14, 2022 — Four hundred private jets attended the COP27 climate jamboree? Saint Greta thinks it's a scam. Green energy costs are large, obvious and measureable; climate benefits are illusory. "Green" policies are destroying the natural environment and changing local weather. This is part of a futile UN scheme claiming to improve the climate of the world. All green energy degrades its environment. Wind turbines steal energy from the atmosphere and must affect local weather. Turbines are always placed on the highest ground and along ridges to catch more wind. Natural hills already affect local weather by causing more rain along the ridge, and a rain shadow further downwind. Wind turbines enhance this rain shadow effect by robbing the wind of its ability to take moisture and rain into the drier interior. Promoting inland desertification is not green.
Solar "farms" prefer large areas of flattish ground and steal solar energy from all plant life in their solar shadow. This deprives wild and domestic herbivores of sustenance. Neither kangaroos, cattle, emus, parrots nor sheep thrive in solar energy deserts. Green energy is dilute—thus large areas of land are needed to collect wind/solar energy. Even more land is cleared for the ugly spider-webs of power lines and roads needed to collect green energy in intermittent dribs and drabs and conduct it to cities, where it is needed. But for most of the time, every day, these expensive assets produce nothing useful.
Greens also worship biomass energy like wood, the fuel cavemen used for warmth, cooking meat and repelling wild animals. Primitive people like the British still burn wood for power generation but too much of the energy is consumed in collecting, drying, chipping and transporting this low energy fuel from distant forests to power station boilers. Germans are now showing confidence that their massive wind-solar apparatus will cope with the coming winter without Russian gas . . . by gathering firewood. And anti-fracking, anti-coal Britain is forced to plan for week-long winter blackouts and/or shortages of gas.
Greens also threaten world hunger by promoting ethanol made from plant foods to replace superior motor fuels such as petrol and diesel. The hill-billies of Tennessee were specialists in distilling corn whiskey which had many uses for recreation and medicine. Others found ethanol could be produced from most plant material especially grains, beets and sugar cane. Greens pollute good whiskey with a touch of gasoline to make it unfit for human consumption and then subsidize/mandate its use in motor vehicles. While some people starve, food is used for motor fuel. US Government biofuel mandates have also made the refining of diesel and other fuels more expensive.
Reliable electricity generators produce electricity when it is needed. But green energy needs batteries to keep the lights on when wind/solar fails (as it does every day). And to charge those batteries while also serving consumers requires a very large increase in generator capacity. This increases the need for more spider-webs of landscape destroying power lines and roads between wind towers, solar farms, "Big Batteries," pumped hydro and electricity consumers. Not green at all. Compare for a moment this ugly green energy mess with tidy concentrated reliable energy from long-life coal, gas, hydro or nuclear power stations.
Finally, the biggest Green Scam of all—Carbon Capture and Burial. This silly scheme relies on the assumption that the buried gas will stay where it was put. In general this green hoax wastes energy, deprives the bio-sphere of plant food, increases electricity cost and reduces the life of coal and gas reserves (Viv Forbes, Saltbush Club).
Another Stolen Election
November 9, 2022 — Reporters compare the exit polls from the 2018 elections with those of the 2022 elections. Comparisons show that Democrats lost support in Tuesday's elections among women, moderates, youth, people of color, urban voters, college graduates, and independents . . . CNN exit polls show substantial erosion of Democrat voting base since the 2018 election. How can such substantial erosion be consistent with the lack of any significant Republican gain?

Comment: Everything is rigged in present-day America: the economy, stock market, unemployment rate, inflation figures, the spot price of gold/silver, not to mention the news . . . Today, anyone who disagrees with the official narrative on any issue is de-platformed or canceled. The move to censorship has been incredibly swift. We watched as our best doctors who attempted to live by their Hippocratic Oath lost their jobs and/or medical licenses; some were actually imprisoned for the crime of doing their job. Since when did doctors become a threat to public health for giving a medical opinion? It appears we have lost our country (email@example.com).
The Personhood Amendment went down to defeat in Mississippi. It would have effectively ended abortion in the state of Mississippi by amending the state constitution and declaring a child is a "person" from the moment of implantation. This would have granted to the pre-born the same rights that born-people enjoy as guaranteed by the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution. It is a tragic day for the unborn. It is a defining day for the lukewarm churches (newswithviews.com).
Is the Fed merely incompetent or is there a Dark Agenda?
November 9, 2022 — I have never known the Federal Reserve make a good decision. Indeed, disastrous decisions are the Fed's hallmark. There are many such disasters. Among them the Great Depression, the decade long consequence of the Federal Reserve Board's failure to prevent the shrinkage of the US money supply. See this.
The Fed has abandoned effective financial regulation and helped to kill the 1933 Glass-Steagall Act that had kept commercial and investment banking separate. It is ironic that it was the formerly progressive Democrat Party in the clutches of the Clintons that repealed the progressive Glass-Stegall Act in 1999, thus setting up the line of financial troubles that caused the Fed to pump out money for 12 years in an effort to stabilize the financial system . . . Washington's EU puppets long ago ceased to think and just follow orders. German car companies want to survive, and if survival requires exiting Germany, they will exit.
The deindustrialization of Germany and Europe would greatly reduce the pressure of NATO on Russia . . . The Kremlin, of course, might again ruin things for itself by coming to Europe's energy rescue . . . If the Kremlin keeps its nose out of it, Washington will succeed in cutting Europe off from energy and relocating European industry to the US. The great defect of Western peoples is that they always take their governments' policies at face value. It doesn't occur to them that government is covering up a dark agenda with a moralistic campaign against Russia that requires sacrifices by the West. Conservatives have tendency to attack real explanations as unpatriotic, and woke liberals attack the truth as misinformation. As there is no media serving as watchdog, there is no obstacle to dark agendas.
Washington's "Russian sanctions" are quickly destroying Europe. See: Quarter of Europeans on the Brink of Ruin, New Survey Finds. Full story: paulcraigroberts.org
Comment: This is why I was incredulous that LaRouche ranked FDR the best US president. Some years ago the Australian government declined to introduce an Act patterned Glass-Steagall. Australia and the US are both following the City of London's dark agenda.
German Chancellor betraying US Emperor? New Germany-China 'Connection'
November 9, 2022 — German industrialists did not and still don't agree with the German—and by association, European industry-destruction called deindustrialization policy. They had in the past already heavily lobbied with Madame Merkel, making semi-secret deals with Russia. German industrialists know that the divide-and-conquer policy is being imposed by Washington—to eventually reach a unipolar world, which is only possible with a fractured Europe, not with a "United Europe." The US GDP is estimated to reach about US$20 trillion in 2022 compared to a fast-catching-up European GDP of US$17 trillion (2022 est.).
German business leaders didn't go along with official German economic policy. Destroying their country economically is going too far. Knowing that Europe in the long-run needs Russia and with an even longer vision, also China, German industrialists made semi-clandestine pacts with Moscow.
German Chancellor Scholz's one-day visit to Beijing, meeting with President Xi Jinping, consisted of a large delegation—several dozen representatives of German key businesses and industries. To the delight of Washington, Scholz told the world: "The world needs China." It's now European economic leaders who call the shots; Olaf Scholz has little choice. The WEF, Washington and Brussels appear to be sidelined. In agreement with France and other EU countries, Olaf Scholz entered into a Trade Deal with China for the equivalent of about US$17 billion . . . Full story: youtu.be
Ireland to Crimea British-sponsored Terrorism
November 9, 2022 — British Military Intelligence is planning to train Ukrainian insurgents in order to carry out a terrorist campaign in Crimea, comes at a time of increasing tensions between Moscow and London. The Kremlin has already accused Downing Street of being involved in the Nord Stream explosions on September 26th, the Kerch Bridge explosion on October 8, and last Saturday's drone attack on the key Crimean port of Sevastopol, with UAVs being a key component of a recent military aid package gifted to Kiev by London.
Indeed, Britain's role in the current Ukraine crisis goes as far back as November 2013, when the Euromaidan colour revolution was launched in response to then-President Viktor Yanukovych's decision to suspend an EU trade deal in order to pursue closer ties with neighbouring Russia. Britain's history of arming and training terrorist groups . . . goes back even further. Full story: globalresearch.ca

Comment: The Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists or OUN is the most successful post-war fascist group . . . Jews were beaten to death with iron bars. Poles were chopped up with axes or cut in half with saws. The OUN took a sadistic delight in humiliating their victims and torturing them to death. Russians were sometimes skinned alive. The 2014 CIA coup in Ukraine made the OUN ideology the official ideology of the Ukrainian state (globalresearch.ca).
Israel's Two Witnesses
Under the Sixth Trumpet (Revelation 9:13-21) the Lord God sent World War II upon Israelites and their vastly more numerous impostors from 1939 to 1945. The unspoken objective of this war, as with the First Woe of World War I and previous wars in which the City of London financed (at interest) Britain, France, Germany and the United States to expend the lives of their subjects and citizens in the conquest of Russia—the world's largest nation with the greatest wealth of natural resources for "the City" to divide and plunder, and rule the world as their own. This is the objective of World War III. "The City" is an international financial oligarchy with perhaps the most arbitrary and absolute form of government. This international financial oligarchy uses the allegoric "Crown" as its symbol of power and has its headquarters in the ancient Jewish sovereign City State of London, an area of 677 acres.
In Isaiah 1:1-31 the Lord God, says, "The ox knows his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel does not know, My people do not consider. Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. Why should you be stricken anymore? You will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrefying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment. Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers (Heb.) 'zwur' (Serpent's seed) devour it in your presence, and it is desolate; as overthrown by strangers (Heb.) 'zwur.' And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city. Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah. Hear the Word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the Law of our God, you people of Gomorrah".
Jesus Messiah expressed the same assessment in Matthew 23:15, 33-39, and today under the Sixth Trumpet (Revelation 9:20-21; 11:8) where He spoke of the abominations that characterized Sodom and identified Jerusalem as the homosexual capital of the Middle East.
Revelation 9:18-21 spells out the result of God's Judgment upon Israel and their non-Semitic majority: "By the fire and smoke and brimstone, which issued out of the mouths of the demons of the four Gentile World Empires the third part of men [Shem] was killed. For their power is in their mouth [propaganda], and in their tails [propaganda tales]: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts".
Revelation 11:14-15 reads on from this point, "The Second Woe [World War II] is past; [might this indicate a treaty of peace between the "Allies" and Germany to entice Germany to pursue President Biden's war against Russia], behold, the Third Woe comes quickly. [Brethren, World War III commenced in 2014, how late is the hour]? And the Seventh Trumpet Angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, the kingdom of this world has become the Kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign forever and ever".
We are going to read Revelation 10:1 – 11:13 which is a parenthesis between the Sixth and the Seventh Trumpet; this is where we live today.
"And . . . insert YOUR name . . . saw another mighty Angel (Ezekiel 1:27-28; 43:2; Revelation 5:2; 18:1; 20:1) come down from heaven, clothed with a Cloud. (This does not refer to the Cloud that appeared above Phoenix on February 28 1963, for the Book was still sealed in Laodicea. This speaks of the Cloud that manifest above Mount Sunset on March 8 1963 into which Brother Branham was caught up (Hebrews 12:1; Revelation 5:6-14): and the rainbow (Genesis 9:13; Revelation 4:3) was upon His head, and His face was as it were the sun (Matthew 17:2; Revelation 1:16), and His feet as pillars of fire" (Revelation 1:15): and He had in His left hand a little book (Revelation 5:1) open: and He set His right foot (in judgment) upon (Papal Rome, the beast that came up out of) the sea, and His left foot (in judgment) upon (the United States of America, the apostate (once Protestant) image of Imperial Rome, the beast that came up out of) the earth" as a new nation having no previous history (Revelation 13:11-18). Now it is a rogue nation and a cold-hearted killer in servitude to the City of London and the Judaeo-Roman Universal false church.
Throughout Revelation John represents Christ's end-time Bride; He does not represent the Church Age saints already redeemed by His mediation in the office Son of God for their ignorance of the fullness of the Word as the Bible was sealed. Next, as "Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Root of David," He claimed the Book of Redemption, loosed its Seven Seals and revealed their mystery to the seventh angel. During John's incarceration on Patmos Island he saw and heard visions wherein Brother Branham was expounding the Seals to Christ's end-time Bride between 1963 and 1965 (Revelation 1:1; 3:14; 10:7). So when John speaks in the first person, please replace his "I" or "me" with YOUR name because John is representing YOU as a member of His end-time Bride.
Revelation 13:11-18, ". . . YOUR Name . . . beheld another beast (Gk.) 'therion'—a wild beast; metaphorically, a brutal, bestial man coming up out of the earth; with two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon" (Rome, Revelation 13:1, 14; 16:13). From its inception Jesus distinguishes the true character of the United States of America as that of a savage, ferocious beast, not an innocent lamb with two horns signifying the independence of the church from the state. "And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence" (Imperial and Papal Rome which united church and state; Revelation 13:4-8, 14; 17:12-18; 19:19), "and makes the earth and those who dwell therein to do obeisance to the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed" (when Emperor Constantine transformed Imperial Rome into a church kingdom at the first Nicaea Council in AD325).
"And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men" (fire bombing Tokyo and other Japanese cities, and nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki as US President Biden threatens Russia). And deceives them that dwell on the earth because of the miracles which he was empowered to work in the presence and approval of the beast; telling them who dwell on the earth to make an image to the wild beast, which had the wound by a sword, and lived. And the Pope had power to give life to the US image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he makes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their forehead: that no man might buy or sell, save them that have the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." Hereby we learn that the United States will turn upon Israelites and their impersonators for Brother Branham also prophesied, "Many Jews in the United States (which they won't escape from) has already received the Holy Ghost" (54-0103M, Questions & Answers 1, par. 235; Revelation 14:9-12).
Revelation 10:3 – 11:2, "Christ cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars: and when He had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a Voice from heaven saying unto . . . Insert YOUR name . . . Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. And the Angel (Jesus Christ) which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up His right hand to heaven (Revelation 5:1), and swore by Him that lives forever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be (Gk.) 'chronos' time no longer" (because redemption was over at the close of the Church Ages. Christ's end-time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites were fully redeemed in Christ, just waiting to recognize the Voice of Christ the Archangel calling their name by revelation of the Seven Seals, or in Israel's case, the Seven Trumpets. Christ's 'parousia' is the Coming of the Word; in Him is the Millennium and the new heavens and new earth (62-0318, The Spoken Word is the Original Seed, par. 119; 60-1209, The Sardisean Church Age, par. 67; 60-1231, Revelation Chapter Four, Part I, par. 125, 151-155).
Brother Branham said, "The first exodus, what did He do? He brought them out of a natural land, to a natural land. The second exodus, He brought them out from a spiritual condition, into a spiritual baptism of the Holy Ghost. Now He is bringing them from the spiritual baptism of the Holy Ghost, right back into the Eternal Land of the Millennium and the great Hereafter. Same Pillar of Fire, by the same anointed system, the same God doing the same things! And the same Word, declared the first one, declared the second one. The same Word, declared the second one, has declared the third one, and here we see It among us" (63-0630M, The Third Exodus, par. 299-301).
"Time is no more," we are already in the second stage of our translation pending the Seventh Trump (I Thessalonians 4:16b). The Voice of Christ the Archangel whispering His amours to our hearts. There is no longer any delay, we are just waiting for the last Bride Age saint to recognize their position in Christ and be caught up like John in Revelation 4:1-2 who represents Christ's end-time Bride throughout the Book of Revelation.
Revelation 10:7, "But in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel William Branham when he began to deliver his Message, the mystery of God was finished, as God declared to His servants the prophets." The revelation of the Seven Seals finished the mystery that Christ the Word is the mystery of God revealed in the virgin-born last Adam, One Person who has redeemed the first Adam and His elect offspring.
"And the voice which . . . insert YOUR name . . . heard from heaven spoke unto me again, and said, Go and take the little Book which is open in the left hand of Christ your Redeemer, the Angel standing upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went to the Angel, and said to Him, Give me the little Book. And He said to me, Take it, and eat it up; and it will make your belly bitter, but it will be in your mouth sweet as honey" (Jeremiah 15:16; Ezekiel 2:6 – 3:10). Our lives must be written epistles at one with the Word. "And I took the little Book out of the Angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter." (The revelation is sweet to the lips and cannot be withstood, but to live with the Token on display one must bring the ten senses of sin-born flesh and mortal spirit under submission). "And Christ said to . . . insert YOUR name . . . You must prophesy again concerning many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings. And Christ, the Mighty Angel (of Revelation 10:1) gave . . . insert YOUR name . . . a reed like a measuring rod—His unchanging THUS SAITH THE LORD of the unwritten Seventh Seal, saying, Rise and measure the temple of God, (His Bride), and the (golden) altar (of incense) which alone was in the sanctuary, distinguished from them that worship thereat. But cast out the court which is without the temple, and measure it not; for it is given to the Gentiles: and they will tread underfoot the holy city for forty-two months" (the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week).
Those who worship at the golden altar are the royal priesthood, such as are "made kings and priests unto God," for none went into the inner court, or served at the altar, but priests. We make use of Christ, the altar of His Person, blood, righteousness, and sacrifice in our approach to God. As praying souls we wait at the altar of incense, and draw nigh to the throne for grace with a true heart, worshiping God in Spirit and in truth: this measuring refers to the time of the close of Sixth Trumpet, the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and the blast of the Seventh Trumpet. Christ gives the rod to His end-time Bride represented by John. Our servant Israel must come under preeminence to the rod.
Revelation 21:9 and 15, "One of the seven angels who had the Seven Vials full of the seven last plagues came and spoke with . . . YOUR name here . . . saying, Come here and I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb . . . "And he who spoke with . . . YOUR name here . . . had a golden reed to measure the City and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof" (as in Revelation 11:1). I believe the golden measuring reed or rod against which Christ's Bride, New Jerusalem, is measured is the THUS SAITH THE LORD of Brother Branham's Message, Christ the mystery of God revealed in the unwritten Seventh Seal, and the angel with the Seventh Vial is William Branham (Revelation 1:1; 16:17; 17:1; 21:9) because the Message to each Church Age held the blessing of Abraham for God's elect and the Vial of judgment or loss for all who fall short of "the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." This is the Ordeal of Jealousy, "investigation judgment" or Vial the non-elect must drink after each Church Age.
The Old Testament is the basis of the vision wherein Ezekiel was brought to a high mountain and saw the Archangel, with a line of flax (for measuring long distances) and a measuring line (for shorter distances). The vision of Zechariah 2:1-2 was probably in John's mind where the Man with a line to measure Jerusalem is followed in Zechariah 4:11-14 by the vision of the two olive branches, distinctly identified with the two witnesses in Revelation 11:3-4, one channeling oil from the Old Testament and one channeling oil from the New Testament, two Olive Trees or "two lamp stands" into the silver reservoir. Since the curtain rent from the top to the bottom the (Gk.) 'naos' Temple of God or Holy of Holies and sanctuary are one and the worshippers to be measured or sealed are the 144,000 elect Israelites of Revelation 7 viewed under the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet in "the time of Jacob's trouble".
From the viewpoint of Christ's end-time Bride Revelation 10:1 – 11:13 is in parenthesis under the Fourth and Seventh Seals and the Sixth Trumpet in the Gentile dispensation. The Voice of the Archangel is showing Christ's end-time Bride a preview of what will take place in the first half of Israel's Seventieth Week when Rome's Devil-incarnate Pope is ruling the world. He is teaching us how the character and faith of Israel's elect will meet the measure of our Seventh Seal THUS SAITH THE LORD by the THUS SAITH THE LORD of their Seventh Trumpet; to this end He will send Moses the prophet to witness where Israel departed the Law to Babylonian paganism via the Talmud that "made the Word of God of no effect" (Matthew 15:6). Malachi 4:4, "Remember the Law of Moses My servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments".
Brother Branham said, "Here's the two witnesses; that's absolutely a return of Moses and Elijah . . . Moses, he died, but where did he go? He had to rise again. And Elijah was translated even without death. He will have to die, 'cause every mortal has to, so he will have to return back again. And there's the two witnesses (54-0103M, COD, par. 72). Elijah will lead Israel from the Law through the ministry of Elishah and the prophets to John the Baptist, and William Branham who were all anointed by the Spirit that was upon Elijah, and introduce Christ's second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming to Israel.
Revelation 11:3-13, "Christ, the Mighty Angel (of Revelation 10:1) will empower His two witnesses (Deuteronomy 19:15; Matthew 18:16; Zechariah 4:12-14; Matthew 24:31), and they shall prophesy or witness under inspiration one thousand two hundred and threescore days, living in a mourning and afflicted state clothed in sackcloth (coarse black cloth commonly made of hair, used for sacks, for straining, and as mourning garments; II Kings 6:30; Jonah 3:4). These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth."
"And if any man should injure or defame them, fire proceeds out of their mouth, and devours their enemies" by their "third pull" as destructive as burning coals or flames, "and if any man will harm their person or property, he must in this manner be killed" (Numbers 16:35; II Kings 1:10, 12). "These have power to shut heaven that it rain not in the days of their prophecy (I Kings 17:1): and power over waters to turn them to blood; and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will" (Exodus 7:19-25). It appears that under the first three and a half years of the reign of the Devil-incarnate pope, there will be famines in diverse places as typed by Genesis 45:6, Amos 8:11; Revelation 6:8; 18:8, and as Brother Branham foretold, not of bread or a thirst for water only, but of hearing "the present Truth" of God's unchanging Word.
"And when the two witnesses have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the abyss (and enters the Pope) will make war against them, and overcome them and kill them." For the voice of convicting conscience, and the voice of anticipated judgment tormented them. "It cannot be that a prophet should perish out of Jerusalem" . . . "If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of His household" (Luke 13:33; Matthew 10:25)? "And their dead bodies will be unburied in the jurisdiction of the Great City (Revelation 16:19; 21:10) as Sodom, Egypt and Jerusalem are called and where also their Messiah was crucified." Sodom is distinguished for its wickedness, and especially for that vice to which its abominations have given name. Egypt is known in the Scriptures as the land of oppression, however Jerusalem has stolen the Land of the Semitic Arab inhabitants of Palestine and held them in bondage worse than ever Egypt treated the Israelites. To leave a body unburied is to treat it with contempt, and among the ancients nothing was regarded as more dishonorable than such treatment. "And those from the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations worldwide will see their dead bodies putrefying in the sun for three and a half days, and not permit their dead bodies to be laid in a tomb".
So the bodies of John Huss, and Jerom of Prague, were burnt, and their ashes cast into the Rhine; the body of Peter Ramus was cast about the streets, thrown into ponds and ditches, then dragged out, and beaten with rods. Some have had their bones dug up again, after they had been buried many years, and then burnt, and their ashes scattered abroad, as John Wickliff and Martin Bucer in England: the enemies of the witnesses having obtained power over them, will not only insult them, but treat them in a very cruel and inhuman manner, and expose them to scorn and contempt.
The Great City remains ever the same; with the same hatred as that with which they formerly brought the Lord of glory there to the cross. Statistics in Jewish encyclopaedias admit that over 90% of Jews (so-called) are non-Semitic; few can be monotheists since Messiah is God, and their holy (sic) Talmud regards the Jewish people as their own Messiah: that's a lot of g_ds. According to the Kabbala they worship the "Ein Sof" or unknowable g_d like the Athenians on Mars Hill; this admits the absence of faith (Acts 17:22-23). The Babylonian Talmud and The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion boast that Jewry will one day rule the world from Jerusalem as per Illuminati plans for Lucifer's totalitarian one world order espoused by modern Israel's first Prime Minister, terrorist non-Semitic self-styled Jew David Ben Gurion, an insider who knew the plan. In Look Magazine, January 16, 1962, he wrote "With the exception of the USSR as a federal Eurasian State, all other continents will become united in a world alliance, at whose disposal will be an international police force. All armies will be abolished and there will be no more wars. In Jerusalem, the United Nations (a truly United Nations) will build a shrine of the prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the supreme court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah" (56:7 sic). But Brother Branham said, "I believe one of these days when the united confederation of church goes together and the new pope is brought out of the United States and put over there [Jerusalem] according to prophecy, then they'll form an image like unto the beast" (54-1219E, Acts of the Holy Spirit, par. 87). For "the times of the Gentiles" extend to the consummation (Daniel 9:27).
Soon the Great City will slay the two witnesses just because they are His witnesses. The people of the Great City did not appreciate the call to repentance preached by the two witnesses of Jesus Messiah. "And those who dwell on earth will gloat and exalt over them and rejoice exceedingly, taking their ease and sending gifts (in congratulation) to one another; because these two prophets had been such a vexation trouble and torment to all the dwellers on earth. But after three and a half days, the Spirit of eternal Life from God will enter into them, and they will rise to their feet; great dread and terror will fall upon those who watched them." The Almighty allowed dishonor to be shown their dead bodies, only in order afterwards to glorify them the more, and gather glory to Himself. "Then the two witnesses heard a loud Voice from heaven calling to them, Come up here! And telecast live worldwide before the very eyes of their enemies, they will ascend into heaven in a cloud, beheld by their enemies. And in that hour there will be a great earthquake; a tenth of the city will fall; seven thousand will perish in the earthquake, and those who remain will be filled with dread and terror, awestruck as they glorify the God of heaven".
Brother Branham said, "So we will set up those Vials and those Trumpets I want to place them in. I told you I would. They come under another thing [the ministry of Moses and Elijah]. So does the Vials come over, the sounding of trumpets; but we want to take the entire course right straight through, and bring it, tie it in together . . . And somehow or another, Lord, it may be You are driving us to that tent, to make that vision fulfill [yes, we will be in the Tent when those revelations are ministered to show Israel her shame, and to expose and contrast the false Judaeo-Roman Universal church and her harlot daughter Churches from the Bride of Christ] . . . You know, in the last days there is supposed to be them plagues repeat again. And remember, an adulterer, in the Bible time, his penalty was death by stoning. And the unbelieving church will be stoned to death, with hailstones, was once God's way of punishment. He'll stone this unbelieving world, this adulterous generation. He'll stone it from heaven, with hailstones weighing a talent apiece, which is a hundred pounds. The adulterous church will die; adulterous world will die under the punishment of God, under stoning, like He did in the beginning. Get right with God, church! That's what we all must do, turn back to God" (65-0711, Ashamed, par. 103, 113, 182)!
Sixty years ago, "After the Church Ages were over, and everything made ready the setting of the Fourth chapter here. He had done left the earth. Remember, the Voice that spoke to him, behind him, in the seven golden candlesticks, the work was finished. And now that same Voice was speaking up in Heaven. What was it? He had redeemed His people. His earthly work was finished, and He was in Glory, calling to John, "Come up hither!" Amen! That makes me feel like shouting on the eve of New Year. Oh, my! There you are. See, ready, "Come up here!"
"War! This is the setting of the great battle; the people that rejected God's Message, rejected the Holy Spirit, the Messengers of the seven churches. One that had rejected this Message of His grace had nothing left, but judgment was ready; oh, while He is making ready to pour out the plagues upon the earth now. "Come up hither and I'll show you what's fixing to take place. Christ-rejecting, godless sinners, I'm going to pour out My wrath upon them".
"Watch the setting. Oh, as we go down through the nights you'll get more of it and more of it all the time. We can't get everything in here; we have to keep referring from place to place. How it's going to be a terrible thing for those when the last Trumpet sounds, and when the last battle is fought, when the last sermon is preached, when the last song is sung, and we stand at the Judgment Seat of Christ. You're going to be asked, "Why didn't you receive It? What did you do with the Life that I give you?" You'll be asked to give a reason. What then?" (60-1231, Revelation Chapter Four Part I, par. 109-111). nl1231.htm
