Bible Believers' Newsletter 1250
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
The title of our main article is "The Day of the Lord" which is closer than people think or dare imagine. We are emphasizing the terrifying hand of nature upon the heavens, earth and every living creature at the blast of the Seventh Trumpet, manifestation of the Sixth Seal and pouring out of the Seventh Vial man's day yields to "the great and dreadful Day of the Lord . . . for the great day of His wrath has come; and who shall be able to stand?" The unprecedented concussion of nature will cast all to the ground, as terrified and trembling "the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, seek absolute concealment from the face of God and the wrath of the Lamb," from judgment, in their despairing repentance. And their present life is transformed into an invasion from the terrible beyond; now they picture even that beyond as more endurable in reality than that which they now live.
By the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ "His Wife has made herself ready" (Revelation 19:7).
Our items of current news shed light upon Satan's Eden under construction and the brave new world he is preparing for those whose names are not in the Lamb's Book of Life, and those whose names have been removed or were never in the Book of Life. Please read the Full story, and prove all things.

The Gathering Storm America's self-inflicted Trouble in Ukraine aggravates our Dangerous Trouble at home
March 28, 2023 — The crisis of American national power has begun. America's economy is tipping over, and Western financial markets are quietly panicking. Imperiled by rising interest rates, mortgage-backed securities and US Treasuries are losing their value. The market's proverbial "vibes"—feelings, emotions, beliefs, and psychological penchants—suggest a dark turn is underway inside the American economy. American national power is measured as much by American military capability as by economic potential and performance. The growing realization that American and European military-industrial capacity cannot keep up with Ukrainian demands for ammunition and equipment is an ominous signal to send during a proxy war that Washington insists its Ukrainian surrogate is winning.
Russian economy-of-force operations in southern Ukraine appear to have successfully ground down attacking Ukrainian forces with the minimal expenditure of Russian lives and resources. While Russia's implementation of attrition warfare worked brilliantly, Russia mobilized its reserves of men and equipment to field a force that is several magnitudes larger and significantly more lethal than it was a year ago . . . Far too many Americans believe they have had no real national leadership since January 21, 2021. It is high time the Biden administration found an off-ramp designed to extricate Washington DC from its proxy Ukrainian war against Russia. It will not be easy. Liberal internationalism . . . makes prudent diplomacy arduous, but now is the time. In Eastern Europe, the spring rains present both Russian and Ukrainian ground forces with a sea of mud that severely impedes movement. But the Russian High Command is preparing to ensure that when the ground dries and Russian ground forces attack, the operations will achieve an unambiguous decision, making it clear that Washington and its supporters have no chance to rescue the dying regime in Kiev. From then on, negotiations will be extremely difficult, if not impossible. Full story: Col. Douglas Macgregor theamericanconservative.com
Disbelief as 'Green King Charles' gives Royal Assent to New Gene Breeding Technology
March 27, 2023 — In one of the more shocking hypocrisies of this year so far, Charles III, King of England—considered to be a strong supporter of organic farming and environmental causes—has given his Royal Assent to a biotechnology 'innovation' which will provide an open book for UK firms to alter the genome of animals and plants, so as to create novel engineered species and biotech 'foods' . . . In taking this step Charles has committed an open act of betrayal of all bona fide farmers, and particularly of organic farmers . . . The dark irony of the King of England launching unlabelled biotech foods, animals and plants on citizens of his own country, is difficult to trump.
Charles is already in conflict with the constitution of his country by standing shoulder to shoulder with Klaus Schwab in promoting the World Economic Forum's 'Great Reset.' One of the main objectives of which is to render nation states obsolete and to centralize all power within the control of a small despotic elite, whose stated intention is to make all private property illegal and to re-engineer human beings into Transhuman cyborgs . . .

9/11 & the COVID-19 Hoax in the Transition to Governance by 'Emergency Measures'
March 31, 2023 — In the US Congress Senator Rand Paul proposed an amendment to drop the Emergency Measures provision that became law a week after the events of Sept. 11, 2001. 86 of the 100 Senators in the US Congress voted down Paul's initiative to discontinue Public Law 107-40 22 years after it was invoked. The post-9/11 law "authorized the use of United States Armed Forces against those responsible for the recent attacks launched against the United States."
The blank check given by Congress in 2001 to the US Armed Forces and its Commander-in-Chief helped push along the agenda that in 2019 put the Department of Defence in charge of a biowar against humanity that is still underway. The main weapon so far in this war is a military device still speciously presented to the public as pharmaceutical vaccines promoted as remedies for COVID-19.
Public Law 107-40 was pushed on the public in September of 2001 without any systematic investigation whatsoever of the crime scene and the range of possible culprits that might have had a hand in the debacle. The leap to take action in 2001 before proper investigations could take place was re-enacted in the COVID-19 Hoax. Within less than a month following 9/11, the US Armed Forces touched down in Afghanistan, where it went to war primarily to implement regime change. Then in 2020-21 a supposed remedy was rushed into production and then jabbed into the arms of several billion humans. These experimental jabs were pushed into blood veins before proper tests had taken place and without the application of quality controls.
This approach of taking action first and leaving investigations to later is apparently becoming an essential aspect of the new normal. Even in the increasingly dysfunctional criminal justice system, where the core legal principle has required the presumption of innocence until guilt is proven, the old rules seem no longer to apply. Usually the old rule is invoked only to provide further protections to the powerful in order to make them even more invulnerable to the recriminations of whistle blowers, investigative journalists and such . . .

Retired FBI Agent Exposes Planned Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP)/ UFO Invasion
March 24, 2023 — John DeSouza, a 25 year veteran of the FBI, exposed a planned UFO invasion that the Pentagon is currently promoting. DeSouza explained that unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) vehicles are man-made, and they differ from UFOs that can shape-shift, are inter-dimensional, are not "physical" and cannot be shot down. He said that historical experience with real UFOs has been mostly benevolent. DeSouza said that the cabal of money lenders from "banking bloodlines" that controls all the nations has dominion over the UAPs and is building a campaign of fear. He said that the next step is for the UAPs to start shooting down commercial airliners and military jets. The long-term goal is to put together the 'Fake Alien Invasion' that is really a psyop using phony aliens. But the destruction will be real. Full story: needtoknow.news
Comment: "Today, America would be outraged if UN troops entered Los Angeles to restore order [re. 1991 LA Riot]. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government." – Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France, 1991.
The Politics of Terror
1988 – today — "The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values" (Zbigniew Brezezinski). Dominating society will be a Plutocracy controlling everything from politics and media, education, commerce and industry, even private property. Such plans call for more governmental programs, more governmental controls, and more and more government-imposed order.
Carol J. Quigley, former Professor of International Affairs at Georgetown University and Bill Clinton's mentor, grasped the Orwellian implications of this over 30 years ago. As Quigley observes in "Tragedy and Hope": "[The individual's] freedom and choice will be controlled within very narrow alternatives by the fact that he will be numbered from birth and followed, as a number, through his educational training, his required military or other public service, his tax contributions, his health and medical requirements, and his final retirement and death benefits."
Utilizing their minions in the media and the alphabet soup of federal agencies—the FBI, ATF, DEA, CIA, NSA, IRS, INS, FDA, BLM, FINCEN, and FEMA—the elite seek total control over our family, our health, our finances, our education, our thoughts, and ultimately, our very lives. What is sought is nothing less than a global plantation run by the transnational corporate elite—a modern day form of world-wide fascism. To accomplish their nefarious ends, covert intelligence operations, highly sophisticated propaganda efforts, and a reorganization of the law-enforcement community is being combined with subtle and invasive legislative changes, all largely unnoticed by public eyes Full story: The Politics of Terror

World's Largest CBDC Trial: the Elite's Cashle$$ Vision for You
March 23, 2030 — The eNaira is Africa's first central bank digital currency (CBDC). Central bankers, academics, politicians, and an assortment of elites from over 100 countries hoping to launch their own CBDCs have closely followed the eNaira, using Nigeria—Africa's largest country by population and economy—as a trial balloon to test their nefarious plans to eliminate cash in North America, Europe, and beyond.
CBDCs enable all sorts of horrible, totalitarian things. They allow governments to track and control every penny you earn, save, and spend. They are a powerful tool for politicians to confiscate and redistribute wealth as they see fit. CBDCs also enable devious social engineering by allowing governments to punish and reward people in new ways. They are an instrument of enslavement; a quantum leap backward in human freedom, mandated as the "solution" when the next real or contrived crisis hits . . .
In Nigeria, government implemented discounts and other incentives to increase the adoption of eNaira. In North America and Europe, expect governments to require CBDCs to welfare recipients, a universal basic income, so-called "inflation relief checks" . . . To Eliminate Cash . . . the Nigerian government announced a plan to remove the legal tender status of various high denomination bills, rendering them worthless . . . over 55% of the adult population in Nigeria does not have a bank account and is dependent on physical cash . . . expect simultaneous measures to force people out of cash . . . the EU has already phased out the 500 euro note. Since 1969 the USD$100 bill is the largest in circulation yet it buys less than $12 in 1969 dollars.
In Nigeria cash withdrawal limits and debit card restrictions were imposed. Capital controls made it challenging to send money overseas. Bank deposits may be forcibly transferred into eNaira—at an unfavorable rate. Expect restrictions and possible confiscations to be imposed on bank accounts when a CBDC is released; they make it easy for government to debase the currency by inflation. Expect a violent scramble to exchange old notes before government deems them worthless. CBCDs, Inflation, financial chaos, global depression, martial law and war are certain when Los Angeles sinks.

Comment: Brother Branham said, "Now, Castro, the only sensible thing that he ever done, was when he counterfeited the currency and paid off the notes, the bonds and burnt them and changed the currency. That's the only thing he could do. And there's only one thing left for this United States to do . . ." and he explained how Rome and the self-styled Jews will confirm the covenant of Daniel 9:27 and refinance the USD$ with gold backing. (63-0324M, Questions and Answers on the Seals, par 289-300).
The Pound Sterling was the primary reserve currency until the first half of the 20th century when Britain (a colony of the Jews' City of London since 1688) almost bankrupted herself fighting World Wars I and II (in Jewry's service like Alexander the Great and Napoleon to conquer, plunder and rule the world from Russia and Central Eurasia). Backed by the world's largest gold reserves the US dollar was officially crowned the world's reserve currency in July, 1944 by the Bretton Woods Agreement. Unbeknownst the United States like Australia and the nations of most Subscribers and readers are also colonies of the City.
Your school atlas and history books did not teach that when Attila the Hun, Genghis Khan and their hordes from Lower Mongolia conquered China, India, Turkey and eastern Europe, they established Khazaria (now the Ukraine) and converted overnight in AD740 to non-Semitic self-styled Tamudic Jews. They conquered and forced Judaeo-communism on Russia in 1917. The Jews Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton overcame the Ukraine in a coup in 2014, where the US is fighting a proxy war against Russia. These so-called Jews boast, "By way of deception thou shalt do war," and as we have shown they deceive other peoples and nations to fight their wars expending their blood and treasure.
The US rose on the dollar's strength and status; today she is broke and living on past reputation. Her final decision was in 1946; she rejected her last opportunity for national repentance in 1956/7 and will face invasion and defeat soon after "the Day of Pentecost has fully come" again. In 1971 she left the gold standard and prints US Treasury Bonds backed by past reputation thereby exporting her inflation and purchasing imports on credit. Of USD$7.2 trillion Treasuries held by foreign countries Japan and Mainland China hold the greatest portions, with China holding USD$870 billion. Other foreign holders include oil exporting countries and Caribbean offshore banking centers (January 30, 2023).
Now you understand why the US maintains 800 overseas military bases and by far the largest military. They may be required for America's defense when the bonds are repaid with Federal Reserve USD'$, then like Castro's Cuba, the currency is changed to US CBCD'$. In Revelation 17 Jesus prophesied that in the latter half of Daniel's Seventieth Week NATO's Black Nobility, exasperated with the USA and the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church, ally with Russia. Vatican City State will be 'nuked' (Daniel 2:40-45; Revelation 17:1 – 18:20, 24), and perfidious USA will be wiped from the face of the earth before Armageddon.
Comment: Two kinds of absolute controls are being prepared to implement The Great Reset, alias UN Agenda 2030. A potential straitjacket and total control by programmable Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), and an all-oppressive health tyranny by WHO, overriding national Constitutional rights and national sovereignty as far as health measures are concerned. The former will be "managed," coordinated and supervised for faultless implementation, by the so-called Central Bank of Central Banks, the BIS; the latter by the 1948 Rockefeller-created, falsely called UN-agency WHO. The emerging tyrant's budget is to 80% pharma, Gates and otherwise privately funded. Both are criminal organizations.
CBDC is a master control element, a weapon of mass destruction . . . in planning for decades, it fits right into the Bigger Picture of the Great Reset/Agenda 2030. Money can be programmed as to how it may be spent, blocked, made to expire, used for certain goods or services—or withheld, wiped out, depending on how well you behave, according to the standards of the all-commandeering death cult elite (globalresearch.ca). Comment: Will China cash its US Bonds and bring down the USA and the Fed trying to bail out the banks? Or will the US attempt to break China, change the currency and go to war?
The Day of the Lord
Isaiah 18:3, "All inhabitants of the world and dwellers on the earth, immediately an ensign is raised on the mountains, you will all see it; and when the [Seventh] Trumpet sounds, you will all hear it".
Figuratively that ensign will be the Pillar of Cloud in the form of Jesus Christ, "the root [and offspring] of Jesse [the father of David, the bright and morning star] standing upon the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives will cleave along the fault line toward the east and toward the west forming a great valley depicted on this topographical map; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south" at the close of the Gentile dispensation and His unrecognized (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming to Israel (Isaiah 11:10-12; 27:12-13; 64:1-2; Ezekiel 11:23; 43:2; 47:1-10; Micah 1:3-4; Habakkuk 3:6; Zechariah 4:7; 14:4-8; Matthew 24:31; I Corinthians 15:51-52; Revelation 11:15).
The second crucifixion will close the Gentile dispensation with an earthquake calling the first resurrection as in Matthew 27:50-53, impacting "All inhabitants of the world and dwellers on the earth." Carefully read and prayerfully contemplate Luke 21:25-28: "There will be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth anxiety of nations in perplexity concerning a roaring of sea and waves." Brother Branham said, "Sea roaring, big tidal waves washing away parts of cities and breaking upon the shores" (53-0509, The Pillar of Fire, par. E-9). "The sea a roaring, great tidal waves breaking the banks of the seas that's never been known in history, killing thousands" (56-1209E, Jehovah Jireh, par. E-71). A feature of earthquakes is liquefaction drawing water to the surface.
It was known even from the Old Testament that fearful signs in the realm of nature would herald the Day of the Lord. Jeremiah 4:23, "In my vision I looked on earth, and behold, it was formless and void [as in the time of creation (Genesis 1:2; Isaiah 24:19-23)] and to the heavens, and they had no light. I looked on the mountains, and they were quaking, and all the hills moved to and fro" (Jeremiah 10:10). Isaiah 5:25-30 also foresaw the invasion of Jerusalem, and Ezekiel 37 – 38 describe the earthquake and how the invasion will see a mass exodus of so-called Jews enabling the return of the Covenant people, and the divine destruction of Gog's army in the mountains of Israel.
Jeremiah 4:25-31, "I looked, and beheld, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens had fled. Fruitful Carmel was a wilderness; all the cities were broken down at the Presence of the LORD, and by His fierce anger. For THUS SAITH THE LORD, The whole land shall be a desolation; yet will I not execute a full destruction. For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black because I have spoken it; I have purposed it and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it. At the sound of the horsemen and bowmen every city flees. They go into the thickets, and climb among the rocks: every city is forsaken, and no man dwells therein. And you, desolate Jerusalem, what will you do? Although you dress in scarlet, although you deck yourself with ornaments of gold, although you enlarge your eyes with paint, in vain you beautify yourself; your paramours despise you, they will seek your life. For I heard a sound like a woman in labour, her anguish as of one bearing birth her first child, the cry of the daughter of Zion gasping for breath, stretching out her hands, saying, Woe is me, for my soul faints before murderers".
Likewise Joel 2:10-11, 30-32, "The earthquakes, the heavens tremble: the sun and the moon grow dark, and the stars lose their brightness: And the LORD utters His voice before His army: surely His camp is very great: for strong is He who executes His word: the Day of the LORD is great and very dreadful; who can abide it? . . . I will show wonders in the sky and on the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible Day comes but whoever calls on the Name of the LORD will be delivered: for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the LORD has said, even among the remnant whom He calls".
"The Big Story is that the Moon is warmer than we thought" says Mark Robinson, a planetary scientist at Arizona State University. "The moon, thought to be cold and dead, is still alive and kicking, barely. Scientists have found evidence for dozens of burps of volcanic activity, all within the past 100 million years—a mere blip on the geologic timescale and they think that future eruptions are likely—although probably not within a human lifetime. For a world thought to have gone cold long ago, the discovery points to a place that still releases internal heat in fits and starts (science.org). The Prophet said, "Anyone knows that the world, positionally, everything is sitting in order for His Coming. "Earthquakes in divers places; the moon is spurting out red blood, or red volcanic all over, covering it," as Jesus said watch for that sign in the last days . . ." (64-0618, The Presence of God Unrecognized, par. 113).
Isaiah 24:17-21. Our earth is a volcanic body. The mighty volcanic forces that were active at its formation are still in commotion in the interior of the earth as proved by the many active volcanoes scattered over the whole earth; we call their perpetual volcanic convulsions earthquakes. These have hitherto been confined to particular localities. However a concentration and simultaneous eruption of those volcanic forces, by a universal earthquake is prophesied among the signs which shall precede Christ's (Gk.) 'parousia' to Israel (Matthew 24:7; Luke 21:11; Revelation 16:18-19). And in II Peter 3:5-18 the future destruction of the earth by fire is set as the antitype of the destruction of the old world by water. Isaiah 24 announces a catastrophe whereby 1) there will be no escape; 2) destructive forces will assail from above and below; 3) the earth will be rent asunder; 4) it will reel and totter; 5) it will suffer so heavy a fall that it will not rise again (Isaiah 24:20b). Isn't this a prophecy of the destruction of the earth by volcanic forces, and how suddenly they can break loose? Ministers have every reason to compare the extreme exposure of our earth to fire, and of its unexpectedly sudden collapse with the above-cited warnings of the Word of God, to attach thereto the admonition which is added in II Peter 3:11.
The earth is a part of our planetary system; however it is not what appears to the eye, a central body around which worlds of a different nature revolve, but together with many similar bodies, revolves round a common centre. Earth according to that view of the account of creation in Genesis 1, has arisen with all the bodies of our Solar system out of one primary matter originally united and common to all. Our Solar System is a well-ordered complete organism, it must rest on the basis of not merely formal, but also material unity; the separate bodies must move, not only according to a principle of order which governs all, but they must also as to their substance be essentially like as they arose simultaneously. And earth, like all other bodies has its peculiar orbit, Brother Branham used this word 73 times in his recorded sermons, generally referring to such bodies, so the flat earth theory is defunct, and where we read that the heavens and earth will pass away, this indicates their renewal or restoration, not their extinction.
When our Lord Jesus Christ claimed the Book of Redemption and loosed its Seven Seals in 1963 His Mediation was fulfilled and redemption was over (Revelation 4:1 - 5:14; 10:1-7). Denominations are apostate (II Timothy 3:1 – 4:4; Revelation 3:15-20); their ministry cannot baptize anyone into Christ because like Israel they are impersonating the Word for a day gone by, worshiping the God of Moses in vain, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. When the Seventh Trumpet sounds, Christ's Body, the Church, will be complete and there will never be another Gentile born-again.
Moses and Elijah will return to Israel and their ministry will gather Israelites from one end of heaven to the other to the Homeland (Isaiah 11:10-12; Matthew 24:31). The Lord cannot deal with Israelites outside the Promised Land where the Covenant is of no effect, likewise non-Semitic white skinned blue-eyed so-called Jews in the Land have no part in God's Covenant with Israel.
Hosea 6:1-3, "Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for He has torn, and He will heal us; He has smitten, and He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us: in the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live in His sight [with eternal Life by the baptism of the Holy Spirit]. Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: His going forth is sure the sunrise; and He will come for us as the rain [reviving and refreshing], as the latter and former rain unto the earth." Such blessings He will give His people if they serve Him with their whole heart (64-0726M, Recognizing your Day and its Message, par. 21-22, 54-56, 61-85).
Hosea spoke in 780BC and "One day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day" (II Peter 3:8). 780BC + AD2023 show that Israel is well into the third day of the prophecy. Israel has been blinded and scattered for more than 2,500 years but in 1946 the United States, which is the image to the beast of Imperial Rome and forever at war with lesser nations, gave Israel's Promised Land, its goods and name, to the impersonating Serpent's seed assimilated by Israel's High Priest John Hyrcanus I in 125BC. Today non-Semitic Edomites, Khazars and Ashkenazim outnumber Semitic Israelites 9:1. Brother Branham said, "I Remember the Jewish people was declared a nation [at Lake Success by the UNSCOP Committee on May 6 (UN docs. A/C.I/P.V.46-57 (May 6-13)] on May 6, on 1946, and the Angel of the Lord appeared to me on May 7, 1946 at Green's Mill, Indiana . . . come into the room where I was at, a Man walking. He didn't have wings; He was just a big man, had a white garment down to His feet. And He said that I was born to pray for sick people. And I told Him I was uneducated, illiterate, and I wasn't able to go. He said I'd be praying for kings and monarchs around the world and a Message that would bring the second Coming of Christ was near . . . THUS SAITH THE LORD, I said, America made her final decision in 1946. Watch, since then she's gone, and there's nothing left but judgment and chaos (58-0309, The Handwriting on the Wall).
Isaiah 27:1 "In the Day of the Lord Jehovah will punish [Israel's historic enemies and the lands of their exile] with His sword; His well-tempered, great and strong sword; Leviathan the rigid serpent—a crocodile whose stiff backbone prevents him from readily turning in pursuit of his prey (signifying the rapid rush of the Tigris—Assyria, Medea and Persia), hence the easiest way to escape from him is by making frequent and short turnings (a precaution I took in Queensland's Cape York Peninsula). Leviathan the flexible and winding serpent, which coils himself up in a circular form (indicative of the tortuous windings of the Euphrates—Babylon), and slay the monster that is in the sea (the Whale—Egypt)".
Isaiah 27:12-13, "And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall beat off from the channel of the river [Euphrates] unto the stream of Egypt [Wadi el Arish], and you shall be gathered one by one, you children of Israel. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Great Trumpet shall be blown, and they who were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt will come to worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem" (Isaiah 11:15).
Isaiah depicts Israel's final destiny as a harvest of glory and highest honour. The sheaves will be gathered from the Middle East and North Africa, the countries of the Euphrates and the Nile where Israel lives in exile to this day. The Lord will thresh the great sheaves of the Gentiles with a staff (Judges 6:11; Ruth 2:17; Isaiah 28:27) to purge and separate the scattered ears of Israel from the Gentile ears and gather them back to the Land of their Covenant as prophesied above.
Do you see the type of the world power under Joseph, saviour of the world in the seven plenteous years and the seven lean years? Seven Gentile Church Ages of plenty, and seven lean years of "Jacob's trouble," the Great Tribulation commencing with the unprecedented earthquake that will "shake not the earth only, but also the heaven," taking Los Angeles to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean and cleaving the Mount of Olives (Hebrews 12:26; Revelation 16:18-19; 18:21-23).
The Great Seventh Trumpet will announce the unseen 'parousia' Coming of Israel's Saviour Jesus Messiah witnessed by a Pillar of Cloud upon the Mount of Olives. Earthquakes will demolish es Sakhra, the Dome of the Rock, instantly igniting invasion and defeat by Muslim neighbours as the Israeli military cannot defend the state without a genuine (nuclear) holocaust. Ezekiel 38 and 39 explain how Russia, Siberia, Iran, Ethiopia, Libya and Turkey ensure Israel is finished as a military power. Russia will secure Israel's oil and gas resources which it presently manages, and wisely confiscate his navy, air force, US and Israeli nuclear ordnance. Upon Israel's defeat UN Resolution 181 of November 29, 1947 will be enforced and Palestine will receive statehood as prophesied in Zechariah 14:1-2, "Behold, the Day of the LORD comes, and the victorious Muslims will leisurely divide their spoil in the street. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women raped; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity as the State of Palestine, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city." Zechariah 13:7-9, "And I will turn My hand upon the 144,000 little ones".
In the early 1930's Brother Branham prophesied that one Good Friday a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth's crust will sink off the US West Coast, taking part of California, the whole of Los Angeles, Hollywood (Jewry's Babylon), and San Diego to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean as Jesus prophesied in Revelation 18:21-23. "And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in you; and no craftsman, of whatever craft he is, will be found in you anymore; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in you; and the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in you; and the voice of the Bridegroom and of the Bride shall be heard no more at all in you: for your merchants were the great men of the earth; for by your sorceries were all nations deceived".
In 1964 Brother Branham was at Sunset Mountain where the Lord had caught him up into the Pillar of Cloud formed by the theophanies of the previous six Church Age messengers on March 8, 1963 (Revelation 10:1-7). "Standing in the same place, Mr. Woods here and I, going up the hill, in a kind of mourning, about his wife being sick. The Holy Spirit said, "Pick up a rock laying there. Throw it up in the air. When it comes down, say, 'THUS SAITH THE LORD, there will be judgment strike the earth.' Tell him that he'll see the hand of God, the next few hours."
I told Mr. Woods; is present tonight. And, I guess, eight or ten of the man, or fifteen, that was there at that time when it took place; the next morning, where the Lord came down in a whirlwind and ripped the mountain out around us, and cut the tops of the trees loose, and made three blasts, and said, "Judgment is headed towards the West Coast".
Two days after that, Alaska almost sunk beneath the earth. And since then, up-and-down the Coast, the belches of God's judgment against that spiritual screen. There is an iron curtain, there is a bamboo curtain, and there is a sin curtain" (65-0219, This Day this Scripture is Fulfilled, par. 166-168). "A magnitude 9.2 earthquake struck Alaska on Good Friday, March 27, 1964—the second-largest earthquake recorded in modern times (after the 9.5 earthquake in Chile in 1960). And He said that would be the beginning of the sign of time, and what would take place. And just word by word, what It said, it's never failed one time. You've never seen it fail. And it can't fail, because it's God's Words. "And Heaven and earth will pass away, but it can't fail." That's right" (65-1125, The Invisible Union of the Bride of Christ, par. 302).
The Alaskan earthquake was God's assurance that following faults from the Aleutian Islands and along the other principal faults, an earthquake of unprecedented magnitude will sink an immense segment of earth's crust: without doubt we believe Los Angeles will sink this Good Friday. Jesus said, "And the seventh angel poured out his Vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices and thunders and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city [Jerusalem] was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon [Vatican City State] came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great" (Revelation 16:17-21).
Jesus sent seven angels in advance to deliver "the present Truth" to those of Adam's race who would receive and allow the Message to their Church Age to live through them. Each Message introduced a measure of the fullness of Jesus Christ the Word, "in whom dwelt the fullness of the godhead bodily," with the promise of eternal Life to an election and the possibility of salvation to others. The seven angels, Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley, and William Branham delivered God's Message to each dispensation of PART-Word.
These ministries were patterned after the criers who foreran Joseph—a type of Jesus Christ—whom Pharaoh set over all the land of Egypt. And Pharaoh took his ring from off his hand, and put it upon Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck; and made him ride in the second chariot which he had; and like the messengers to the Church Age, criers called before him, "Bow the knee, Joseph is coming: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt. Pharaoh told Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without you no man shall lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt. And Pharaoh called him Zaphnathpaaneah which means "the man to whom hidden things are revealed"—typing Jesus Christ (Exodus 41:39-46).
Jesus claimed the Book of Redemption, loosed and revealed its Seven Seals through His forerunner. And like Zaphnathpaaneah (Joseph), "William Branham, the seventh angel finished the mystery of God," and introduced the unseen second or 'parousia' Coming of Christ the fullness of the Word to His end time Bride. So today, by God's help we have the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication so that which was in PART is done away (I Corinthians 13:10-13; 10:7; 22:6-10, 14-15, 17-21; Revelation 10:7).
Brothers and Sisters, Christ's end-time Bride must "make herself ready" for the Wedding Supper, identifying ourselves in the unity of the faith of Christ the Word at one with the Absolute of God's written Word through the revelation of the Words He spoke through His Prophet Brother Branham. His spoken Word will come to pass on Good Friday; we must each be in expectation by revelation, for in the Day of the Lord we will need to exercise the "third pull" by faith, not hope.
Jesus said, "These signs shall follow them that believe" (Mark 16:17). Don't forget it. You can't forget it and be a Christian. You must be identified with it. You must be identified with John 14:12,"He that believes on Me, the works that I do shall he do also." Don't forget it. If you do, you have spiritual amnesia. You've forgotten who you are. You've forgotten what your testimony means. He said, "If you abide in Me, and My Word in you, you can ask what you will and it'll be done for you?" Are you identified there, to believe that which is the Truth (John 15:7)?
We must be in the faith now since earth will quake the instant the Seventh Trumpet sounds and the Sixth Seal begins to manifest as Brother Branham's Seventh Vial pours upon apostate churches worldwide as they unite to perform good works following the natural convulsion of earthquakes, tsunamis and violent weather in the Day of the Lord. The Gentile dispensation having passed the world will be in the Great Tribulation and know it not.
Jesus said, "After the Church Ages when the Son of man is revealed whoever seeks to save his life shall lose it; and whoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. And they answered asking, Where, Lord? And He replied, Where ever the Body [of Christ] is, the eagles will gather to feed on the present Truth" (Luke 17:32-37; II Peter 1:12; Revelation 18:4).
"Remember Lot's wife?" Either side of the pulpit men look back like frogs: ministers trying to do unbelievers a service trespass denominational ground, feeding bellies instead of serving a two course admonition of "the present Truth" then farewell subverted heretics. "You always have the poor with you" (Matthew 26:11). Christ's Church is commissioned to serve His elect (Ephesians 4:8-16). Once the Seventh Trumpet sounds the open Door will shut, and in the Day of the Lord those people will become atomic fodder (Isaiah 13:6, 9). I believe the Seventh Trumpet is the Great Trumpet announcing Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel, and two days after Los Angeles sinks and the Mount of Olives cleaves, the resurrection of the dead in Christ will commence. nl1250.htm
