Turkey-Syria Earthquake . . . an Act of Terror?
February 6, 2023 — at 4 a.m. a 7.8 magnitude earthquake rocked southeast Turkey and Syria, followed by a strong 6.7 magnitude aftershock about 10 minutes later Over 34,000 deaths not including Syria. Fifteen reasons why this may be the work of Uncle Schmuel Full story: globalresearch.ca, youtu.be. Romanian Senator Diana Lovanovici speak in Parliament on the use of HAARP technology in Turkey
Comment: On February 3, Turkish interior minister, Suleyman Soylu, blasted US Ambassador to Turkey, Jeffry L. Flake, saying, "Take your dirty hands off Turkey."
The outrage was prompted after Washington and eight European countries issued travel warnings over possible terror attacks in Turkey. The US and its western allies have attempted to connect a recent Koran burning in Sweden with travel danger inside Turkey. Muslim countries worldwide have denounced the burning as hate speech, not free speech, but this has no apparent connection to travel safety issues inside Turkey.
The US travel warning is tantamount to a declaration of economic war on Turkey who is in an economic downturn of its tourism sector, which was 11 % of the GDP in 2019, representing $78.2 billion, and rose to $17.95 billion in the third quarter of 2022, of which 85.7 percent came from foreign visitors. In 2018, tourism directly accounted for 7.7% of total employment in Turkey.
Is this initiative to undermine Turkey's tourism industry in any way related to the fact that Turkey, a "NATO heavyweight" is also a firm ally of the Russian Federation, who is "sleeping with the enemy"? Sounds contradictory.
Turkey has opted in favor of Russia's "State of the Art" S-400. That acquisition of Russian military technology is part of a concurrent military cooperation agreement as well an alliance between Turkey and Russia established in the immediate aftermath of the failed July 2016 US sponsored coup d’état directed against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Is the destabilization of the tourist industry a preamble to US interference in Turkey's May elections? globalresearch.ca.
Whether the devastation in Turkey and Syria was the work of Joe Biden and the USA as the Nord Stream pipelines from Russia to Europe were devastated is yet to be established. However, one thing is certain, the United States and its fiat dollar are failing and that desperate nation's sole asset is her blooded military. Also certain—this earthquake foreruns another attraction on the mountain which will cleave the Mount of Olives at the close of the Gentile dispensation (Zechariah 14:4-5, 8; 4:7; Isaiah 29:1-6; 64:1-9; Ezekiel 43:1-12; Micah 1:3-4; Habakkuk 3:6; Romans 11:26; Revelation 11:13-19; 16:17, 19). This will deliver the utter defeat of the Israeli state, never again to be a military power as prophesied in Ezekiel 38 and 39. This will commence the severing of NATO.
How America took out the Nord Stream Pipeline
February 8, 2023 — The New York Times called it a "mystery," but the United States executed a covert sea operation that was kept secret—until now

Comment: A further illustration how as the image to Imperial Rome has the apostate pernicious 'exceptional nation' signed its own death warrant as our Lord Jesus Christ foresaw her 'nuke' Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Revelation 13:11-18), and "in the last and seventh vision of Brother Branham's 1933 apocalypse was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America" [nuked by Russia] (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:3).
In 1960 US nuclear war plans were formalized in the Single Integrated Operational Plan (SIOP)—a massive simultaneous nuclear strike on the USSR's nuclear forces, military targets, cities, against China and Eastern Europe. It was planned that the US strategic forces would use almost 3,500 atomic warheads to bomb their targets. According to US generals' estimates, the attack could have resulted in the death of about 285 to 425 million people. Certain of the USSR's European allies were meant to be completely "wiped out" (canadiandimension.com).
Prof. Michel Chossshudovsky: "No evidence of foreign sabotage" of an act which has created social havoc and hardship in the European Union, with rising energy prices? People are freezing, unable to pay their heating bills. This crisis which emanates from Washington has been conducive to a process of impoverishment all over Europe from a never-ending surge in energy prices.
German Prosecutor General Peter Frank confirmed "there is no evidence to blame Russia for the destruction of the Nord Stream gas pipelines": the evidence is there: it is being ignored by Germany's Prosecutor Peter Frank as well as by Chancellor Olaf Scholz. It had been ordered by the president of the United States. Joe Biden. They know it! They are liars . . . You do not need a Prosecutor to lead an "expert investigation" into who's behind this Act of War against more than 400 million Europeans.
President Joe Biden: "If Russia invades that means tanks and troops crossing the border of Ukraine again, then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2 . . . We will, I promise you, we will be able to do that." "There will be no longer a Nord Stream 2" (globalresearch.ca).
Russia's Foreign Minister Mr. Sergei Lavrov discusses the admitted criminality of the USA in destroying Nord Stream 1 and 2 bitchute.com).
"Setting the Record Straight; Stuff you should know about Ukraine" establishes the fact President Putin and Russia are peace-makers in strict accord with UN regulations. With its productive economy now in China and the wobbly USD declining America faces an existential crisis. The United States was planning to engage in acts of war against Russia regardless of developments in Ukraine. The Russian invasion was merely a cover for Washington to execute a plan that it had mapped out years earlier. These very important articles need to be studied as they explain the background behind Isaiah 6, Ezekiel 38-39, the earthquakes and weather warfare over recent years and the eventual destruction of North America. Americans are living in the wrong place at the wrong time. "America made her final decision in 1946 . . . and there's nothing left but judgment and chaos" (58-0309, The Handwriting on the Wall, par. E-39).
Putin laughs as Sanctions fail to crush Russian economy; waves Sarcastic Goodbye to Western Firms
February 10, 2023 — Russian President Vladimir Putin waved a sarcastic farewell to foreign businesses which have left Russia over the conflict in Ukraine. He said that their departure would only benefit Russian companies. He said those companies will suffer major losses as a result of exiting a large and lucrative market. Scores of Western companies have left Russia amid unprecedented sanctions imposed by the West. Yet Putin has managed to keep the Russian economy afloat and withstand western efforts to 'punish' Kremlin war efforts. Watch this video to find out how . . . Full story: youtube.com

The 239 Year Timeline of America's Involvement in Military Conflict
December 18, 2015 — The American public and the world have long since been warned of the dangers of allowing the military industrial complex to become such an integral part of our economic survival. The United States is the self-proclaimed angel of democracy in the world, but just as George Orwell warned, war is the health of the state, and in the language of newspeak, democracy is the term we use to hide the reality of the nature of our warfare state.
In truth, the United States of America has been engaged in some kind of war during 218 out of the nation's total 239 years of existence. Put another way, in the entire span of US history, this country has only experienced 21 years without conflict. For a sense of perspective on this sobering statistic, consider these 4 facts about the history of US involvement in military conflict:
- Pick any year since 1776 and there is about a 91% chance that America was involved in some war during that calendar year.
- 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.
As the world moves closer and closer to an official beginning to world War III, and as many people are seeking opportunities to de-escalate the situation in the Middle East, it is important to realize that the US state and the American people are simply not equipped or conditioned to pursue and realize peace. War is indeed the health of our state. Full story: activistpost.com
Comment: The US obtains new NATO Members by subversion, followed by coup, followed by ethnic cleansing. This pattern has been used since the Soviet Union ended in 1991 when the 'anti-communist' excuse for America's post-WW-II global imperialism has no longer been available to use (such as had earlier been the case in Korea, and in Vietnam, and in Guatemala, and in Iran, and in Chile and so many other lands), prior to 1991. However, the pattern for this subversion and ultimate conquest was created back in 1965 in Indonesia . . . (globalresearch.ca).
Propping up the Wobbly Dollar
February 4, 2023 — The Federal government gave up all pretensions that money is backed by the gold held at the Federal Reserve, or backed by anything concrete. In 1972 the dollar became a fiat currency, money that is not tied to anything but reputation. Since that fatal day, the powers behind the curtains have maintained the value of the dollar in various ways.
The legitimacy of the dollar was tied to the legitimacy of the United States and its strength as a cultural, educational, scientific, technological, and sadly military, power. This approach worked until the 1990s, but the decay of the angel was inevitable. As the value of the United States decreased because of corruption and decadence, and because of the inevitable rise of the other nations devastated in the Second World War, increasingly devious means were employed to assure dollar's value. Covert efforts were launched to undermine the authority of other nations, whether Russia and China, or Germany and Japan. Perhaps it seemed like a good idea on Wall Street, but the result was the creation of a brutal winner-takes-all global economy—and the same covert means would be used finally against Americans themselves to keep them addicted to the dollar economy as it collapsed. The United States slipped into a malignant culture. The decadence of wealth and power meant that innovation was stifled by conceited men like Steve Jobs or Bill Gates who pretended to be the inventers of things they stole and were enshrined in a handful of paralyzed institutions. The quality of literature and art, of film and music, declined. US universities ceased to strive for truth and for science. Instead they crawled into bed with private equity and billionaire philanthropists, using advertising, rather than education, to prop up their global status. The strategy of using culture to hold up the value of the dollar ceased to be effective . . . Wars for oil, and other natural resources, became the primary concern in foreign policy, not peace. As a result, militarism sunk its roots deep in the economy, deep into the very spirit of the nation. There was no space left to seek for cooperation and accommodation. Any threat to the dollar had to be beaten down brutally . . . Full story: emanuelprez.substack.com
Distract, Divide and Conquer: the Painful Truth about the State of our Union
February 9, 2023 — Step away from the blinders that partisan politics use to distract, divide and conquer, and you will find that we are drowning in a cesspool of problems that individually and collectively threaten our lives, liberties, prosperity and happiness. These are not problems the politicians want to talk about, let alone address, yet we cannot afford to ignore them much longer. Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: Last month at the billionaire confab in Davos, "a European Union official predicted to a US congressman that the US would 'soon' enact laws on 'illegal hate speech' similar to those in the EU," according to American Military News.
Vera Jourová, the vice president of values and transparency for the European Commission, tapped Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton on the arm and laughed as she made the prediction. It came as she discussed whether AI is capable of moderating online hate speech . . . it is nothing less than a sick joke that a woman cozy with a criminal oligarch is permitted to oversee the "core values" of the EU. She is . . . actively seeking to control online content . . . she is in reality an agent of George Soros' Open Society. kurtnimmo.substack.com
Pfizer's Business Model is Actual Fascism. 'The Merger of Corporate Power and State Power'
February 3, 2023 — Progenitor of the ideology, Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, infamously defined fascism—alternatively, corporatism—as the "merger of corporate and state power" . . . Pfizer and Moderna pillage the treasury to offset the cost of research and development for their mRNA shots. Then, once they're developed, they manage to get the government to cover the price for the shots administered to the public.
The shot is then marketed as "free" to the public. But, of course, the public is paying for the shots via the treasury. The problem is that no one sees dollars drained from their personal bank accounts. The cost to the individual, which is filtered through large institutions, seems far-off. To Joe Six-Pack and Sally PTA, they're just vague digits in some government spreadsheet.
Meanwhile, Pfizer and Moderna reap record profits because their project costs are subsidized on the back end and they get a premium at the point of sale. Pfizer doubled its profits from 2020 to 2021 by selling its COVID shots to the government that paid to develop them in the first place. Project Veritas recently exposed an undercover meeting with a Pfizer executive in which he admitted that "Pfizer is a revolving door for all government officials." . . . Full story: thedailybell.com

Seldom if ever mentioned in the media is that the FDA cannot legally grant an Emergency Use Authorization for an experimental drug or vaccine if an "adequate, approved, and available alternative" already exists. Second, it is now well established in the medical literature that blood clots are caused in some mRNA-injected people for Covid-19. Third, regarding the question of the vaccinated causing harm, since the mRNA injections do not stop transmission of Covid-19, the vaccinated frequently infect the unvaccinated (globalresearch.ca).
Brother Branham often mentioned Isaiah 6 because King Uzziah who began his reign when he was only sixteen and reigned for fifty-two years, was a good king who "did what was right in the sight of the Lord according to all that his father Amaziah had done" (II Kings 15:3). And as long as he sought the Lord, God made him prosper. This strong king had led Israel in military victories over the Philistines and neighbouring nations; he was an energetic builder, planner, and general whose fame had spread to the entrance of Egypt, for he strengthened himself exceedingly. But Uzziah's life ended tragically when his heart was lifted up to his destruction, for he transgressed against the Lord his God by entering the Temple of the Lord and usurping the office of priest and intercessor to burn incense on the golden altar. In response, God struck Uzziah with leprosy which types sin, or unbelief in His revealed Word and the King lived in a separate house isolated from the Temple until his death.
We see in Uzziah a type of the Laodicean Church Age which completed the reformation of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic system of false worship with the ministry of a vindicated prophet revealing "Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today and forever" in a parade of the Supernatural for thirty three years. In spite of these incontestable witnesses, Laodicea denounced the ministry of the Prophet of Malachi 4:5 and 6b and put Christ out of the Church when it rejected The Revelation of Jesus Christ, ending in apostasy like Israel, "and knowing it not" (II Timothy 4:3-4; Revelation 3:17-20):
On January 26, 1963, before the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International Convention in Phoenix the Lord spoke through His Prophet expressing His complete displeasure with them and their system "like so many others they were now just another organization" (Revelation 2:6, 15; 3:17-20). After stating the Lord's anger, Brother Branham was whirled around by the Holy Spirit in two circles, and as he left the platform he cried with a loud voice, "Come out of her My people"!
Within moments the international directors were summoned to a hastily arranged executive session. There nineteen blind men passed a motion stating that "No longer would William Branham be invited as a speaker to FGBMFI functions." The motion passed seventeen to two. Following the passing of the motion, Carl Williams and Clay Sonmore (both executive vice-presidents of the FGBMFI) tendered their resignations if this motion was left to stand and remain on record. In deference to them as persons whose resignations might make waves, the motion was rescinded and removed from the record.
Even though most of these men re-voted to remove the motion from the record, they remained convinced that the ministry of this Prophet should be curtailed and effectively side-lined. From that day they despised the Word of the Lord. They murmured against the Prophet that God sent to the church of Laodicea. On February 28 the Lord Jesus Christ appeared in the heavens, "He was high and lifted up," wigged as a judge looking down upon Phoenix, and the Pentecostal church along with the Seven Church Ages ended on March 8. Like Micaiah in the days of the 400 prophets of Jezebel (I Kings 22), William Branham was vindicated (Investments).
Hebrews 10:30-31, "We know Him who said, Vengeance belongs to Me, I will repay, and also, The Lord will judge His people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God".
After preaching "Doors in a Door" in Tucson on February 23, 1963 Brother Branham received a three-page telegram from Mr. Ted Kipperman, a Jew in partnership with a Catholic named Ayers who was married to a Jewess. These photographers had been engaged by the Baptist critic Rev. Dr. Best to take his photograph in the auditorium of the Rice Hotel in Houston on January 24, 1950 threatening to skin Brother Bosworth. Six photographs of Dr. Best waving his fist at Brother Bosworth were blank. God did not allow the photographers to dishonour His aged servant. The seventh photograph portrayed Brother Branham overshadowed by the Shekinah. The telegraph was a deep apology by the Jewish photographer and an appeal to Brother Branham to intercede for his sister's son who was to be executed. Brother Branham postponed his hunting trip and drove to Houston where he entreated the governor in behalf of the boy and his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment.
Then on March 4, Brother Branham preached "The Absolute" at a prayer meeting convened by the prison chaplain, his long time friend Raymond Hoekstra, and immediately after the service he and Brother Norman drove 1,100 miles back to Tucson for the remainder of the Javelina pig hunting season which ran from March 1–10. The hunting party pitched camp on March 6 and Brother Branham shot his Javelina the following day, March 7. He was picking a sand burr from his trouser leg on March 8 when a "blast" went off according to a vision of the Lord foreseen on December 22, 1962 (Reproach for the Word, December 23, 1962, 3:2 – 8:9; Sirs, is this the Time? December 30, 1963, p. 88:3 - 91:5).
"The Road to Sunset," an article published in the June 1992 issue of ONLY BELIEVE magazine discusses the Cloud photographed on February 28, 1963 and details the hunting trip in March, the "blast," his alignment in the Cloud of angels, and his new commission. (See Newsletter 1057).
"In the year that king Uzziah died Isaiah saw our Lord Jesus Christ sitting on His throne, high and lifted up" (Isaiah 6:1-13). Isaiah's vision in the year of king Uzziah's death is the same as Paul's prophecy to Christ's end-time Bride at the breach between the Church Ages and the Seals following the death of Laodicea in March, 1963. Ephesians 1:12-23, "In the dispensation of the fullness of times [Church Ages] when God gathers together in one Body all things in Christ, both the sleeping Church Age saints which are in heaven, and we who are alive and remain on earth; even in Him . . . when by the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of our understanding being enlightened, we may know what is the hope of His calling, and the riches of the glory of His inheritance in US, and the exceeding greatness of His resurrection power to us who believe ['the third pull'], according to the working of His mighty power, which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: and has put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the Head over all things to the Church, which is His Body, the fullness of Him Who fills all in all".
When Uzziah died the throne was empty, and without a Mediator the world church system was dead when Laodicea ended in apostasy for there was no Blood on the Mercy Seat. Isaiah saw the temple in our day; two thousand years after the veil that separated the holy of holies had been split from the top to the bottom. He saw Christ seated between the Cherubim and Seraphim, and the Divine glory filled the whole temple. John 12:37-41, "Though Jesus had performed so many attesting miracles before them, they were not believing in Him so that the Word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which He spoke, "Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?" Therefore they could not believe, because that Isaiah said again, "He has blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them." These things said Isaiah because he saw the glory, and he spoke of Him".
Now the "evening Light has come; it is a fact that God and Christ are One!" In Revelation 4 Christ's end-time Bride, represented by John, was caught up in the Spirit, "and saw the Lord sitting upon a Throne high and lifted up" as Judge. As in Isaiah 6:3 one Seraph cried to another, "Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of Hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory," in Revelation 4:7-11 the Cherubim, typing the Bride of all Ages, sang this refrain at the close of the Church Ages of PART Word and the second or parousia Coming of the Son of man. "And the foundations of the [denominational] thresholds trembled at the Voice of Him who called out, while the temple was filling with smoke."
Brother Branham's commission was "to restore the hearts of the children of God back to the foundation of the apostles and prophets" (Malachi 4:6b; Ephesians 2:20; Jude 3). Foundations built on the shifting sands of creed and traditions are shaken at every dispensation change. When the Christian dispensation ends "God will shake not the earth only, but also heaven" (Hebrews 12:26-27).
This manifestation of the "smoke from the glory of God" precedes the outpouring of the seven Vials of God's wrath upon the false church in the ordeal of jealousy at the conclusion of each Church Age. As Revelation 15:8 explains, "The temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God [throughout the Christian dispensation], and from His power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, until the seven plagues of the seven angels are fulfilled [in the Seventh Vial]" Note the parallelism of the clouds of incense-smoke as the symbol of adoring prayer or revelation (Revelation 5:8; 8:4).
As Israel and the Law ended in apostasy with the first crucifixion of the Word, the Gentiles have crucified the Word a second time, "the churches are apostate and know it not." When the last of Christ's end-time Bride recognizes her day and its Message, Christ will turn back to Israel. Now compare Isaiah's reaction to the dispensation change with Brother Branham's experience.
Isaiah 6:5-9, "Then said Isaiah, Woe is me! For I am cut off; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. Then one of the Seraphim flew to me, having a hot stone in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from off the Golden Altar of Incense: and he laid it upon my mouth, and said, This has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin is purged. Also I heard the Voice of the Lord, saying, whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. And He said, "Go, and tell this people, Keep on listening, but do not perceive; keep on looking, but not understand."
"Render the hearts of this people insensitive, their ears dull, and their eyes dim, lest they should see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and repent and be healed."
Compare this with Brother Branham's vision of December 21, 1962: "Now, I have had many things to happen in my life, but I never had anything like that. I went into a trance. I don't know the interpretation. I've never had anything like it in my life . . . I realized that it was a vision, and I was in the vision. But I was talking to my son, Joseph. Which, he was not in the room at the time. But somehow, just as it struck me, I was talking to Joseph.
And I looked up. And kind of, in the shape of a pyramid standing before me was little, small birds, something like a half-inch long. They were up at the top, on the limbs, there was now, say, three or four. Then, next limb had maybe eight or ten, and down at the bottom had fifteen or twenty.
And they were little warriors, because their feathers was beaten, and looked like they were trying to talk to me, saying something. And I was in the West, seemingly around Tucson, Arizona. And the birds were looking East. And I was listening close. Was trying to say, looked like they were trying to tell me something. And they had little feathers, was all been beat up, and things. They were pretty well battle-scarred. Then, all of a sudden, one bird begin to take the other one's place, jumping like that. And the little birds swiftly left, flying eastward.
And when they did, from that came a larger bird, more like doves, with a pointed wings. And they come in a swarm, and swiftly, more swift than what the little birds was, flew eastward. And I still in my . . . the two consciences together, I knowed I was standing here, and I knowed I was somewhere else. See? And I thought, "Now, this is a vision, and I must learn what this means."
And no more than the second group of birds come by, I looked to the West. And looked like in the form of a pyramid, like two on each side, with one in the top, came five of the mightiest Angels [Seraphim, or the theophanies of the seven Church Age messengers] I ever seen in my life. Such a terrific speed, I never seen. Their heads back, and their pointed wings, just sailing quickly! And the power of Almighty God struck me, in such a way, till it lifted me plumb from the ground, all the way from the ground, up. I could hear Joseph still speaking.
And sound like the sound barrier breaking, that a great roar went off, way in the distance, to the South. And when I was lifted up there was such a terrific speed of the Angels! And I can just see them right now, see, as they were coming, in that shape like that, just sweeping right into me. I'm not dreaming, now. No. I was right there, wide awake as I am now. See?
But here it come. And they were so terrifically fast, till I thought, when It lifted up . . . I heard that explosion, like, or like a blast that went out, like a sound barrier [Revelation 10:3-4]. And when it did, I thought, "Well, this must mean that I'm fixing to be killed, see, in a blast of some sort." And . . . While I thought on those things, I thought, "No, it wouldn't be that. Because, if it was a blast, it would have got Joseph, too. Cause, there he is, still talking, thinking I'm there. I can hear him. It wasn't that."
Now, this is all still in the vision . . . See? And then, all at once, as I realized I had been . . . They were around me. I couldn't see them, but I had been brought into this constellation of a pyramid of them, inside this constellation of Angels, of five. And I thought, "Now, death Angel would be one. Five would be grace." I was thinking that. I thought, "Oh! It's coming with my Message. That's my second climax. They're coming to bring me the Message from the Lord." And I screamed out with all my might, as loud as I could, "O Jesus, what would You have me do (Isaiah 6:1-10)?" And when I did, It just went away from me" (Reproach for the Word, p. 4:2 – 5:4). His new commission would be confirmed in January 1963 by the sword of the Word in His hand as explained below.
Do you see the likeness of Brother Branham's vision to Isaiah's experience in chapter 6 of his Book? Brother Branham's Message introduced Christ's second Coming. The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form and the churches rejected Him just as the Temple and synagogues had rejected the Word in flesh which is to blaspheme the Holy Spirit and have one's name removed from the Book of Life, ensuring one will never hear the Word of the Lord again (Psalm 69:16-29; Matthew 23:33-36; 27:23-25; John 11:47-52; Acts 2:23; 13:46; 18:6; Hebrews 6:4-8).
In consequence the denominations are in the breach between the Church Ages and the Seals where Christ is no longer interceding for PART-Word and theological guesswork now that He is King of kings and Judge we now have the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication, and those in the breach who have heard the Message and seen the Prophet's vindication are souls imprisoned now. Brother Branham warned the people "When that which is complete, [the fullness of the Word], has come by the revelation of the Seven Seals, then that which is in PART and Christ's intercession for ignorance of the fullness would be done away" (Matthew 25:1-13; I Corinthians 13:10; I Thessalonians 4:16; II Timothy 4:3; Titus 3:9-11; Revelation 3:20; 18:4). For Brother Branham's commission was "to proclaim the day of vengeance of our God" (Isaiah 61:2b; Malachi 4:5).
Isaiah recoils from the dreary prospect, and feels that this dreadful hardening cannot be God's ultimate purpose for the nation. So he humbly and wistfully asks how long it is to last. The answer is twofold, heavy with a weight of apparently utter ruin in its first part, but disclosing a faint, far-off gleam of hope on its second. Complete destruction and the casting of Israel out from the land is to come.
Then he asked, "Lord, how long?" And He answered, "Until cities are devastated and without inhabitant, Houses are without people, and the land is utterly desolate, and the Lord has removed men far away, and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land. Yet there will be a tenth portion in it, and it will again be subject to burning, like a terebinth or an oak whose stump remains when it is felled. The holy seed is its stump."
The earthquake that sinks Los Angeles will be accompanied by an earthquake on the same parallel in Jerusalem. Zechariah 14:5-9 said, "And you will flee by the valley [formed by the cleaving] of My mountains; for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel: yes, you will flee just as you fled before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord My God shall come, and all the saints with Him. And it shall come to pass in that day, that there will be no Light: but it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it will come to pass, that at evening time it will be Light. And in that day Living Waters of the Gospel will go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the Dead Sea, and half of them toward the Mediterranean Sea: [ever-flowing] in summer and in winter shall it be. And the Lord shall be King over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord and His Name the only one".
This accompanied by Zechariah 14:1-2 explains what we have taught concerning the soon-coming earthquake that will destroy Es Sakhra, the Dome of the Rock, igniting the 'hot stage' of World War III resulting in the utter defeat of the modern state of faux Israel and its abandonment by the self-styled Jews, enabling the children of Jacob to return to the Land of the Covenant without "fear of the Jews."
March 8, 2019 marked the fifty-Sixth year since Christ descended with the unsealed Book of redemption open in His hand (Revelation 5:8, 10:1-4). "Do not therefore throw away your confidence, which has great recompense of reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise. For yet a very little while, He Who is Coming will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man shrink back, My soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction; but of them who have faith to the saving of the soul" (Hebrews 10:35-39; Habakkuk 2:1-4).
After the Lord takes His Gentile Bride Home for the Wedding Supper in the Air, "the Lord will set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people, which shall be left—blood Israelites, not so-called Jews—from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea" (Isaiah 11:11).
His priestly Office Son of God (John 5:25-26) Mediating for ignorance of the fullness of the Word is fulfilled (I Corinthians 13:10); and having claimed the Book Christ opened its Seven Seals and revealed their mystery through His Prophet William Branham (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Revelation 5:8-14; 10:1-7). Since Christ is now in the prophetic Office Son of man, He is King of kings and Judge (John 5:27).
"Seated on the throne, the train of the skirts of Christ's royal and judicial robe, for He is represented as Judge (Revelation 1:13), spread and overflow His divine glory as a badge of dignity, fill the temple or palace of God as King." The glory of the Lord is His Wife, the Church; metaphorically His train of heavenly beings, the theophanies of His elect Bride who follow Him, filling the temple: Christ and His Wife is the Temple (Ephesians 5:22-33; Revelation 21:22-23). "The Seraphim who stood above and by Him on the right hand and on the left each had six wings; with two he covered His face in reverence, and with two he covered His feet in humility, and with two wings He was in action to fly." God was showing Isaiah how His prepared servants must be reverent, humble, and in action.
Cherubim, Seraphim and angels are symbolical creatures in three different ranks or offices like Father, Son and Holy Ghost, Son of man, Son of God, and Son of David. They are shadows and types of redeemed human beings who will worship God in Spirit and in Truth and lead His elect Church of Brothers and Sisters of the new creation into oneness with Christ. The Cherubim symbolized God's throne guards which became four ranks of three Israelite Tribes who guarded the four cardinal points of approach to the Presence of God in the Holy of Holies of the Tabernacle in the wilderness. Under the New Testament the Cherubim morph into the saints baptized into Christ under the four Seals of our Spiritual redemption as this diagram explains. The saints of Pentecost, Ephesus, Smyrna and Pergamos were redeemed under the First Seal from the living creature with the face of a Lion, and the Office of Apostle; the Gospel of Matthew guarded the way into the Presence. The saints of the Thyatira Church Age were born-again under the Second Seal from the living creature with the face of an Ox and the Office of Pastor: the Gospel of Mark guarded the way into the Presence. The saints of the Sardis and Philadelphia Church Ages were regenerated under the Third Seal from the living creature with the face of a man, and the Office of Teacher: the Gospel of Luke guarded the way to the Tree of Life. The saints of the Laodicea Church Age and Christ's end-time Bride are born-again under the Fourth Seal by the Offices of Evangelist and Prophet (II Timothy 4:1-5) from the living creature with the face of an Eagle: the Gospel of John guarded the way to the Acts of the Holy Spirit in us.
This illustrates the fact that the Bible is the story of God changing His form or unfolding Himself from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts to the flesh of His glorified family.
The number four is made up of three and one (3+1=4), and it denotes, therefore, and marks that which follows the revelation of God, namely His creative works. He is known by the things that are seen. Hence the written revelation commences with the words, "In-the-beginning God CREATED." Creation is therefore the next thing—the fourth thing, and the number four always has reference to all that is created. It is emphatically the number of Creation; of man in his relation to the world as created. It is the number of things that have a beginning, of things that are made, of material things, and matter itself. It is the number of material completeness. Hence it is the world number.
The four Cherubim are ministers as flames of fire (Hebrews 1:7)—first mentioned in Genesis 3:22-24 where "God forcibly expelled Adam from his happy home in the Garden of Eden; he still dwelt in the land of Eden east of the Garden, between the Cherubim and the Shekinah as a flaming sword turning in all directions [yet maintaining its place] guarding the way to Christ, the Tree of Life, creation's blessed hope of immortality." This foreshadowed the fiery four sided brazen altar and its four horns at the approach to God from the outer court east of the Tabernacle, and the Cherubim in the tabernacle and temple. God said, "I will commune with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two Cherubim" who type Israel's two witnesses (Exodus 25:22; Zechariah 4:12-14; Revelation 11:3-12). Cain was the first to "go out from the Presence of the Lord [in land of Eden] to dwell in the land of Nod (or "wandering") on the east of the land of Eden" (Genesis 4:14, 16; I John 2:19). Hence "the wandering [non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled] Jew" who have no inheritance in this world and no hope in the world to come.
The Cherubim are next seen in connection with atonement, the one ground on which creation could hope for the end of its groaning, above the mercy-seat and upon the veil, binding up the hope of creation with Him who is called "the Hope of Israel" (Exodus 26:31; Jeremiah 14:8; 17:13; Acts 28:20). There is no hope for a groaning creation apart from atonement, apart from Christ (Romans 8:19-39). Now since the atonement the same four Cherubim called "living creatures" bid "Come" to the members of Christ's Bride under each of the four Seals of our redemption (Revelation 4, 5 and 6).
Early one morning in January, 1963, shortly after he had relocated to Tucson, as instructed by vision, Brother Branham looked from the window of his apartment to a distant spot in the Catalina Mountains, and heard the Angel of the Lord say, "Go there." At about 8:30 a.m. he entered Sabino Canyon, drove up as far as he could, and set out on foot. He found himself "up where the eagles were flying"; there in the midst of some jagged rocks he felt the Presence of the Lord and knelt down praying, holding his hands out to God on top of that mountain when a Sword struck his hand. It had a pearl handle (wisdom) with a guard of gold (deity); the blade was about three feet long, it shone like silver (redemption) and was feather-edge sharp (Hebrews 4:12). He thought, "Isn't that the prettiest thing?" Just fits my hand. Then a Voice that shook the canyon said, "This is the King's Sword." Then he came out of the vision. Later, the Angel of the Lord revealed it was the Word in the hand. It's for your ministry: the Seven Seals will be opened and "the mystery of God will be finished." This Sword was his authority to stand in the breach between the Church Ages of PART-Word and the Seals of the fullness of the Word, which is Christ, the Capstone.
Laodicea would be fulfilled within ten weeks together with Christ's mediation for ignorance of the fullness; redemption would be over and the revelation of the Seven Seals delivered for the predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word. The revelation of the Seven Seals will quicken Christ's end-time Bride as the Seven Trumpet mysteries will redeem 144,000 elect Israelites: both fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary. The symbolical Cherubim that guarded the way to the atonement and Pentecost when Jesus and the Old Testament saints rose (Matthew 27:50-53) will declare their antitype is Christ's Body the Church as the Church Age saints resurrect and "we who are alive and remain" manifest that we are the Sons of God and change in the atoms.
Four is the number of deliverance; once the Fourth Seal is fulfilled the living creatures who will have realized their duty as throne guards like the principal tribes that camped about the Tabernacle. They were Christ's Bride of all Ages. The Gospel age ends when the Sixth Seal opens, and the tribulation of Daniel's Seventieth Week begins (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 374:189-190). Whichever way the Cherubim went they travelled forward, thus the armour of God covers only our forefront. In every dispensation the elect stood and faced the Enemy unto death without retreat (Revelation 2:10; 7:13-17; 20:4). During Israel's wanderings the Cherubim had wheels that travelled forward whichever direction they took (Ezekiel 1:1-28; 10:1-22). The four Cherubim are written in the heavens, God's first Bible, dividing the Zodiac into four equal parts, uniting in one twelve signs which set forth the blessed hope of a groaning creation that waits for the Promised Seed of the woman to crush the Serpent's head and bring in universal blessing (Revelation 20:10). They mark the purpose of God from the moment the curse was pronounced, and are the pledge that it will one day be removed.
As the Cherubim ultimately prove to have represented Christ's "Holy, Holy, Holy" wife growing into the stature of the perfect man, the Seraphim, shown in God's first Bible as the Pleiades, typed the Seven Church Age Messengers, and the angels are our theophanies having the glorified appearance of God's elect foreknown before creation (#63-08032, Influence, p. 11:67-68, 73; #64-0215 Influences, p. 12:81-86; #64-0315 Influence, p. 15:119, 137, 142). They each prefigure elect men and women of the last Adam's race. Despite Judaeo-Roman Catholic dogmas, God does not need mythical beings like the pagan religions, for his ultimate objective is to be "All in all" (I Corinthians 15:28; Ephesians 1:23). God's finished creation will be Himself manifest, and throughout eternity the "saved" will worship God in the flesh of His glorified Family.
Like the Cherubim [elect Church] the appearance of the Seraphim was "like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of torches going back and forth among the living creatures [Church] (Ezekiel 1:5-13; Revelation 4:5-6). The fire was bright, and out of the fire went lightning [revelation] (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:27). "As the lightning [illumination of revelation] came out from Jerusalem in the east, and shone around the world even to the United States in the west; so shall the (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming or unseen Presence of the Son of man be" (Revelation 10:1-4; 16:14). Hebrews 1:6-8, "And when God brings the first begotten into the world a second time [by His parousia in the Office Son of man—first to us Gentiles in 1963, and then to Israel after the close of the Christian dispensation] He said, "Let all the angels of God worship Him [and YOU were worshiping with the twenty-four elders and the saints of the Old and New Testaments] (LXX Deuteronomy 32:43; Isaiah 1:24-25; Romans 15:10; Hebrews 1:4, 5; Revelation 5:8-14). Speaking of the angels, God says, the angels are but ministers employed to reveal and perform His will to those who will be the heirs of salvation—honourable officers of the great King, fulfilling His pleasure, executing all of His commands, going and coming at His beck (Hebrews 1:14; Psalm 103:20-22); swift as the winds, and as rapid, as terrible, and as resistless as a flame of fire; but in respect to the Son He says, Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. And a sceptre of rectitude is the sceptre of your Kingdom" (Psalm 104:4; Hebrews 1:7; Revelation 4:5)?
The Bible is the story of God changing His form or unfolding Himself from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts into the flesh of His glorified Family which is the NEW creation of God-men and women, of whom He is Lord Jesus Christ, the Beginner and the beginning. As Attributes of the Logos—His eternal thoughts—we are the continuation of the same creation (Colossians 2:9; Revelation 3:14). So it is not 'God in three persons,' but One God in "ten thousand times ten thousand and thousands of thousands" of persons. God assigns a more humble office to us angels who are mere ministers with a name that implies a more humble rank and office than the Son. We obey His will and serve God in a ministerial capacity like the elements of wind and lightning; while the Son is Lord of all.
The imaginary and symbolical Seraphim were incense burners that brought the worshiper into the Presence of the Lord, typing the seven Church Age messengers, each endued with a portion of the sevenfold Spirit of God to communicate the sacrifice to the saints: the revelation of "the present Truth" they have received from the Lord. This incense of revelation covered ignorance while the Bible was sealed. Thus cleansed by the "washing of water by the Word," or revelation, their prayers were received. The Fire of seven lamps represented the seven portions of the Holy Spirit that quickened the seven Messages, baptizing the saints into their part of the Body represented by the seven branched Golden Lamp stand seen in the vision of Revelation 1:12-20. In the Old Testament a priestly mediator offered their petitions back to God by Fire on the Golden Altar of Incense before the Throne.
Represented as flashing with splendour, full of swift energy like a flame of fire, as glowing with fervid love blazing with enthusiasm, the seven angels or Seraphim stand closest to God and led the penitent to the altar as long as there was a sacrifice; that is until the close of Laodicea. There is no ice in His presence, and the nearer we get to Him in truth, the more we too shall glow and burn. Cold religion is a contradiction in terms held by professors who are not doers.
Brother Branham said that before the Cherubim, Seraphim and angels, "There was no angels, no nothing . . . just the self-existent One, nothing but Him alone" (Adoption, Part II, p. 46:132). Contrary to denominational guesswork there could be no "fallen angels" until Lucifer; then the offspring of his vicarious son Cain, and all irredeemable and grievous sinners of Adam's race smitten from the Book of Life. In Genesis 1:26-28, before creation manifest God (Heb.) 'bara' created man in His Own image out of nothing but thought; God's thoughts are eternal and they are real and must come to pass in their designated and decreed season and time. God did not create a man in His Own image but the entire Adamic race, male and female in His Own image—every one of billions or trillions of men and women that will ever be was in His foreknowledge and image; His elect are Spirits of His eternal thoughts.
In John 6:63 Jesus said, "It is the Spirit that quickens; the flesh profits nothing: the Words that I speak to you, they are Spirit, and they are (Gk.) 'zoë,' [God's Own Life]." God's Word is the Holy Spirit in a form we can receive by faith, and faith in what II Peter 1:12 calls "the present Truth" imparts His eternal Life by new birth. So we were spirit men and women in His mind, for "there was not a man to till the ground" (Genesis 2:5-7) until Adam was (Heb) 'yatsar,' formed, on the seventh day which may have been millions of years after God declared he would (Heb.) 'Asah' make him in His Own image from the dust of the earth. Then God was made in the image of man to redeem man. In His great mind the omniscient God foresaw that sin (or unbelief in the revealed Word) would arise: He spoke the Word, and the Lamb of God, Adam's KINSMAN Redeemer, Jesus Christ was slain before the foundation of the world and YOU were included in salvation then (Revelation 13:8). Every soul in Adam's race in born "saved" from their mother's womb, and so long as their name remains in the Book of Life they will be granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment. It is Christ that God looks at, not you. And so long as you are dead to the world and the things of the world and your life is hid in Christ (Colossians 3:3), you are without condemnation for Jesus Christ in without fault (Romans 8:1).
Demons are persons; "fallen angels" are those whose names have been removed from the Book of Life which is the genealogy of the first Adam, the physical Serpent's seed were never in the Book of Life and born lost (II Peter 2:4; Jude 1:6; Revelation 12:7-9). As God is not an arbitrary judge we all commence life as innocent children, and determine our own destiny by the exercise of our free moral agency; most of Adam's race and all of Cain's race will come to the place of no more repentance like Esau (Hebrews 12:16-18). So the world cannot become "a better place" this side of the millennium because upon death those whose names are absent the Book of Life will become another demon, and demons do not die.
We read of the "horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha" (II Kings 6:17), of Moses and "a flame of fire out of the middle of a bush" (Exodus 3:2); "a pillar of a cloud, to lead Israel the way; and by night in a pillar of fire" (Exodus 13:21); of the angels who attended Jesus' incarnation (Luke 2:7-20); "angels ministered unto Him" (Mark 1:13); assisted Jesus at his resurrection (John 20:1-18), and of the epiphanaia at Armageddon (Revelation 19:11-16). These Supernatural manifestations of created beings are not cause to imagine heaven is filled with these created beings: the Lord God can create and materialize terrible characters as the occasion demands.
As Brother Branham said, "He made Cherubims with wings, and He made Angels without wings" (Israel and the Church, Part II, p. 37:15). "And there is a difference in heaven in angelic beings, there is Angels, there is Cherubims, and there is Seraphims. And we are all different" (The Harvest Time, p. 7:47). Then referring to the photograph in Life" Magazine of the sign of the end-time the Prophet said, "If you'll get the magazine and look, you can see the shapes of their wings is still there as they're going up, the seven Angels" (Testimony, p. 6:34). These were the Seraphim that represented and eventually became the angels to the seven Church Ages, Paul, Irenaeus, St. Martin, St. Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley, and William Branham. Your 'guardian angel' is your theophany God foreknew before the foundation of the world. Brother Branham said, "We accept God by faith, by the written Word. There is something in there; it's that Eternal Life. You were predestinated to it . . ."
Eagles don't mix with other things [denominational guesswork]. He's not a hybrid; no. He's a eagle. Then, after you recognized the very Word of God was Eagle Food, then you left the other thing. You have then been formed into the living image of the living God. You heard from your theophany. "If this earthly body be dissolved, we have one waiting" (Who is this Melchisedec? p. 17: 86-88). We must ever remember that the root-meaning of "holiness" is separation, and that the popular meaning of moral purity is secondary and derivative. As Paul explained in Romans 8:28-30, you are an eternal attribute of God foreknown before the foundation of the world and expressed in the Logos. You could not know that until you were born-again by recognizing your day and it's Message. Jesus said, "At that day you shall know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you" (John 14:20). nl1075.htm
