JFK warned us about Globalists' 'Monolithic & Ruthless Conspiracy' & Censorship Regime
May 5, 2023 — US President John F. Kennedy gave a speech on the dangers the globalists pose to us all before the American Newspaper Publishers Association on April 27, 1961:
It requires a change in outlook, a change in tactics, and a change in missions—by the government, by the people, by every businessman or labor leader, and by every newspaper. We are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence—on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, and political operations.
Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, and no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War, in short, with a wartime discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match . . . Today, the governments of the US, EU and Israel are experiencing a global revolution against their "rules-based order" and are struggling to remain the unipolar hegemonic power thus by creating a censorship regime to keep important information hidden from the public in order to continue their regime change wars, interfere in foreign elections, coordinate political assassinations, to imposing crippling economic sanctions against their adversaries. The "monolithic and ruthless conspiracy" that JFK spoke about has come true in various forms since his groundbreaking speech, but one thing I would like to mention is that there is hope, there is a world-wide awakening taking place and the Globalists are very concerned . . . The endless lies promoted by Western powers and Israel are now facing a backlash by the global community and that's why they are racing to censure anyone who dares to tell the truth about their hidden agendas.

Was the Tucker 'Take Down' a Deep-State Hit?
May 5, 2023 — Carlson was fired because he used his prime-time platform to expose the crimes and illicit goings-on of the most powerful men, corporations and agencies in the world. That . . . he revealed the truth about big pharma's toxic injections, Fauci's deranged lockdowns, Brandon's police-state surveillance, the expansive deep-state censorship program, CRT, BLM, ESG, George Floyd, drag-queen children's hour, the oddball cult of trangenderism, Ukraine's crummy dictator-president Zelensky and all the other pernicious inanities that are being used like a wrecking-ball on the nation's moral and historical foundation. Tucker exposed them all.
This was a carefully-calculated, narrowly-supported targeted assassination of the man—who more than any other—had become a problem for the reprobate Mafia that runs the country and is determined to silence or annihilate anyone who speaks out against them . . . Carlson was a victim of a system that no longer tolerates free speech, even-handed criticism or any divergence from the official narrative . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Crying out against Drive for World War, Emanuel Pastreich
May 1, 2023 — When NATO Secretary–General Jens Stoltenberg traveled to Kiev, Ukraine, and declared to the world that "Ukraine's rightful place is in NATO" and then he announced the next day that "all NATO allies have agreed that Ukraine will become a member of NATO" he was essentially stating that the institutional groundwork for a world war has been all laid down for us and that a dictatorial institution, shrouded in secrecy, called NATO, will seize control of the entire operation and enforce "full interoperability" within the militaries of the countries that have had the misfortune to become members of NATO.
"Full interoperability" means, for those unfamiliar with such technical military terms that decisions within the military will be made in secret by a cabal of select military officers reporting directly to the billionaires.
Under the rule of Stoltenberg, an unelected general, the way forward to world war can no longer be impeded by mere citizens who arrogantly pretend they have ideas that they are entitled to express, that they have a right to hold opinions other than those fed to them by the New York Times or Fox News.
This push to destroy the chain of command in the militaries and in the governments of NATO members, the nations of Europe, Turkey, and the United States, has been extended to Asia as well. The bureaucrats and politicians of Japan, of the Republic of Korea, and of Australia and New Zealand have been told, in unambiguous terms, that they also must turn over the chain of command for their countries to NATO, using the newly invented AP4 (Asia-Pacific Partners) system, and that their nations will be lassoed into a drive for war with China–against the will, and the interests, of their citizens, against the interests of every child on earth.
This silent coup d'état has been advanced through the promotion of intelligence sharing, interoperability, and military exercises.
Each of these words has a special meaning that you are entitled to understand.
"Intelligence sharing" means that the information required for a nation to make decisions on critical security issues is being farmed out to multinational corporations like Google, Facebook, Amazon and others, and that the nation state no longer controls its military, no longer can decide its response in a crisis.
"Interoperability" means that only certain weapon systems can be used, those built by Lockheed Martin or General Dynamics, and that those weapons cannot be serviced, or modified, by third parties.
"Military exercises" (which are increasing in frequency) means that the militaries of each country in NATO (and allies in Asia) must work within an opaque and oppressive chain of command wherein officers practice being told how to wage war by forces that are invisible to them.
That means that neither the politicians, nor even the high-ranking generals, will have any say in this planned rush towards death . . . The reason why no politician can stand up against the rush for war being promoted by multinational investment banks, private equity, and a host of parasitic entities is NOT simply that the politicians are corrupt and cowardly, selfish and narcissistic—although they are all of those things too. No, the truth is that the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and other parts of the federal government that have been largely privatized and rendered up as cat's paws for the rich and powerful to use have issued classified directives that prohibit the discussion of critical issues like the drive for world war, the 9.11 incident, COVID19 and other operations—with serious consequences for anyone who violates those directives.
Such classified directives are accompanied by secret laws (whose existence is not secret). The Congress passes secret laws that prohibit certain actions by public figures.
Secret law is as binding as federal law—but disclosing its use is illegal and punishable by heavy fines.
The use of these unconstitutional secret directives and laws renders impossible the discussion of the most serious issues facing our country, even as our politicians boast of our democracy. All politicians recognize, and accept, this criminal and deadly deal with the devil, an arrangement resulting from years of corporate and bureaucratic power playing footsie.
It is not the first time in history that the control of government and of the military has been taken over by a hidden elite that are ready to kill millions in order to protect their wealth and power.
In the intolerable days of early summer, 1914, citizens across Europe watched in horror as the institutions of government embraced a suicidal march towards war without any space for discussion or for diplomacy. The leaders of France, Germany, England, Russia and Austro-Hungary appeared to be possessed by evil spirits forcing them to take steps that would leave millions of people dead, killing an entire generation of young men—young boys—for sport.
Later, however, it was revealed that these nations had signed numerous secret treaties between them that forced the hands of politicians and bureaucrats—and made it impossible for government to reflect the will of the people. The narrow interests of a handful of the rich, the Rothchilds, the Morgans, the Warburgs, and the Rockerfellers, were promoted at the expense of the rest of the world through such secret governance.
Such an unholy politics of secret governance is precisely what we face today. If any of us survive, no doubt those classified directives, and secret treaties between nations that are used to enforce the COVID19 operation, or to force the drive for war with Russia and China, will be released decades in the future . . . What kind of a president do I want to be? . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Pending US Congressional Resolution on War against Russia
May 4, 2023 — The Ukraine Victory Resolution, which was introduced in the House of Representatives and US Senate on April 25th, now appears likely to become passed in both houses of the Congress and signed into law by President Joe Biden.
The Resolution says that, "It is the policy of the United States to see Ukraine victorious against the invasion and restored to its internationally recognized 1991 borders," which means that unless Russia will return to Ukraine all of the land that it now is controlling within what had been the 1991 borders of Ukraine (Crimea, Donbass, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia), America will declare war against Russia, supposedly to force Russia to yield those populations and lands back to Ukraine's government as they had been prior to Obama's 2014 coup's having overthrown the democratically elected and neutralist President of Ukraine and replaced him with a rabidly anti-Russian and illegal US-imposed government, which even Ukraine's Presidents after that time have acknowledged to be illegitimate but which both of them led to invade the breakaway former Donbass region and threatening to invade the breakaway former Crimea region. All of the proposed Resolution's congressional sponsors are shown here.
On May 2nd, Rome's Catholic Church, which competes worldwide for members against Moscow's Eastern Orthodox Church, headlined in its "Our Sunday Visitor" news service from Washington DC, "Helsinki Commission examines Russia's attack on religious liberty in Ukraine," and reported on a hearing at the Capitol . . . The resolution that they wrote and are leading through the Congress will, if it passes and becomes signed by the President, then be followed by the necessary US Declaration of War against Russia in order to fulfill upon the commitment which that Resolution is promising, which commitment is victory against Russia in Ukraine. Russia's determination to defend itself against the US's having grabbed Ukraine in order to place its missiles there only 317 miles away from The Kremlin would then be serving as the US Government's pretext for starting WW III . . .

What do Russia and China use their Military Domination for?
May 2, 2023 — Russia and China have far superior armaments to those of the West. The former has won the war in Syria and is preparing to win in Ukraine. Despite its best efforts, Nato, which has already failed in the Middle East by proxy jihadists, is unable to reverse the reality on the battlefield.
The way of thinking of the former colonial powers leads them to imagine that Russia and China will use their military superiority to impose their way of life on the rest of the world. But that is not their intention at all and that is not what they are doing.
Moscow and Beijing are constantly calling for the application of international law, nothing more. The Russians want peace at home, while the Chinese hope to trade everywhere. The events in Ukraine have made us forget Russia's repeated demands since 2007: it demands its own security guarantees, in particular the absence of arsenals belonging to third countries stored on its neighbour's territory. Russia does not have the means to defend its borders, the largest in the world. Therefore, it cannot ensure its security if enemy armies are massing on several fronts on its borders, except by practicing the "scorched earth strategy" of Marshal Fedor Rostopchin. This is the meaning of all the negotiations for the reunification of Germany. The USSR was opposed to this, unless the New Germany undertook not to store Nato weapons in the East. This was the meaning of all the negotiations with the former Warsaw Pact states. And this was also the meaning of the negotiations with all the states of the former USSR. Moscow has never been opposed to a state choosing its allies and eventually joining NATO. It has always objected if joining NATO implied the installation of NATO weapons stocks on its territory.
Moscow was not satisfied until 1999, when 30 OSCE member states signed the Istanbul Declaration, known as the "Charter for Security in Europe," which sets out two major principles :
• the right of each State to choose the allies of its choice and
• the duty of each State not to threaten the security of others in ensuring its own.
It was the violation of these principles, and that alone, that led to the Ukrainian conflict. This was the meaning of President Vladimir Putin's speech at the Munich Security Conference in 2007, where he denounced the failure to comply with OSCE commitments and the establishment of a "monopoly" governance of the world.
The West, which considered Russia to be a bankrupt country, agreed that it was right, but laughed at its impotence. They were wrong: Russia has risen up and overtaken them. Today, she uses her strength to make us respect the principles we have sworn to uphold, not to impose her way of thinking on us. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the West has neglected the commitments it made during the Cold War in order to build a "New World Order," as Margaret Thatcher and George Bush Sr. put it; a New World Order "based on rules" that the West itself defined. We have thus accumulated violations of our engagements and, consequently, of international law . . .
On March 21, 2023, in Moscow, the Russian and Chinese presidents, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, agreed on a common strategy to ensure the triumph of international law. In their minds, it is neither more nor less than dismantling everything that Madeleine Albright and Condoleezza Rice have achieved . . . Ultimately, what we in the "West" have to fear from Russia and China is that they will force us to be ourselves and honour our word. Full story: voltairenet.org
Türkiye facing the American Empire
April 26, 2023 — With two weeks to go before the Turkish presidential election, the debate is changing. From being for or against Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Islamism, it is becoming for or against the alliance with the United States. The outgoing president is regaining points in the polls that predicted him to lose. He has gone from being an Islamist to a nationalist. Whether this will be enough to allow him to win is not yet known, but if he does win, it is to be expected that he will withdraw Türkiye from NATO.
The United States is thus paying the price for the assassination attempts on the Turkish president, especially the one that led to the failed coup of July 15, 2016, after Ankara decided to build a gas pipeline with Moscow and even bought weapons from it. In addition, Washington is blamed, rightly or wrongly, no one knows, for causing the recent earthquake that cost the lives of tens of thousands of Turks. Public opinion thus shares a strong anti-American sentiment in a country that has given much to the United States since the Korean War (the Turkish army won and fought a decisive battle there, saving the United States from disaster) and has suffered much from them with the Kurdish drama (the CIA has taken control of the PKK and encouraged its terrorist actions, thus holding a "gun to Ankara's head") . . . All Turks noticed that the Westerners withdrew their ambassadors from the country in the two days before the disaster, as if they knew about it before it happened, and that they delayed sending relief supplies . . .

The Redemption of Israel
We approach Revelation 14 toward the very end of the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week just before Armageddon. 144,000 elect Israelites, victoriously overcome, will soon be martyred. Rome long before broke her Covenant with Jewry (Daniel 9:27) and empowering the United States image to the beast of Imperial Rome universally enforced the mark of the beast in the right hand or in the forehead on pain of death as Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon demanded worship of the image of his god, Daniel the prophet (Daniel 3:1-7; Revelation 13:15-18). The mark in the right hand signifies one bound to serve Rome, while the mark in the forehead signifies conversion to Judaeo-Roman Catholicism.
Revelation 14:1-20, "I . . . [enter your name as throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ's end-time Bride . . . looked, and beheld the Lamb of God standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty four thousand having His Name and His Father's Name [LORD JESUS CHRIST] written on their foreheads [signifying "the faith of Jesus and the Commandments of God" Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 28:19; Luke 24:47; John 5:43)]. Psalm 2:1-6 pictures the Son of Man upon Mount Zion, the City of David, preparing to confront the kings of the earth at Armageddon as do Revelation 11:18, 14:13-14 and 20:6. Mount Zion means Sunny Mount and puts us in mind of Mount Sunset or Sunset Mountain in the Coronado Forest of Arizona; forty miles north of Tucson where the Lord descended in the Pillar of Cloud with the Book of Life open in His left hand and caught up His Prophet William Branham.
"And I heard a Voice from the heaven, as a Voice of many waters [peoples and multitudes, and nations and tongues bearing witness (Ezekiel 43:1; Revelation 1:15; 17:15; 19:6)], and as a voice of loud thunder: and the voice which I heard was as of harpers, harping with their harps: And they sing a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures or cherubim, and the elders: and no one was able learn the song except the hundred and forty four thousand, that were bought from the earth [by the Message of Moses and Elijah revealed exclusively to 144,000 elect Israelites]. "These are they who were not [doctrinally] defiled with women [churches]; for they are virgins [to the Word of Jesus Christ, not denominational harlots, and typed by eunuchs who attended the harem of kings like David with 500 wives, and Solomon with a thousand wives (Matthew 19:12). Therefore they cannot procreate and remain a fixed number of 144,000]. These [will attend Christ's many membered wife, thus] they follow the Lamb wherever He may go. These were bought from among men, a first fruit unto God and the Lamb. And in their mouth was not found falsehood: for they are blameless".
Verses 6-12 are in parenthesis to explain the history of the reformation of the Roman Catholic system of false worship and the restoration of the apostolic faith under the last three Church Ages. "And I saw another angel flying in mid-heaven, having the everlasting gospel, to declare glad tidings unto them that sit on the earth, and to every nation, and tribe, and tongue, and people, Saying with a great voice, Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment has come: worship Him who made the heaven, and the earth, and the sea, and fountains of waters." Martin Luther (1483 – 1546) was the angel to the Sardis Church Age (1520 – 1750), his principal Message was: Christians are justified by grace through faith alone not works like Jewry's Talmud or Roman Catholicism which impersonates the Jew's Temple worship. Luther traveled to Rome where he saw the futility of the church's imposed works that were supposed to bring salvation, and the Word of God struck home to his heart.
"And another, second angel followed, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great city, she who gave all the nations to drink of the wine of the rage of her fornication." Rome's idolatrous worship is spiritual fornication. Wesley brought correction to the backslidden Protestant churches as Jesus set Himself forth as "He That is holy, true, (the only reality), He that has the key of David, He that opens, and no man can shut; and shuts, and no man can open." He preached sanctification by the cleansing Blood of Christ—for "without holiness no man shall see God." And that is exactly true. Once he was born-again through the ministry of the Moravian Peter Boehler John Wesley he soon found that he no longer had access to his familiar London pulpits, and with George Whitefield he began to preach in the fields where thousands were listening to the Word.
"And another, third angel followed them, saying with a great voice, If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark in his forehead, or on his hand, he shall drink the wine of the wrath of God, which has been poured out undiluted into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascends unto the ages of ages: and they have not rest by day and by night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name. Here is the endurance of the saints: here are they who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus" [144,000 born-again Israelites]. William Branham (1909 – 1965) was the angel to the Laodicean Church Age (1906 – 1963); he restored the hearts of God's children to the faith of their apostolic fathers (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11), and after Laodicea had apostatized he introduced Christ's unseen second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming (II Timothy 3:1 - 4:4; Revelation 3:14; 10:1-7). The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form in 1963 through the lips of His Prophet. Christ's Presence has been with and in His end-time Bride for the past sixty years, and considering world conditions today as foretold in the Bible it will not be long before He returns to Israel.
Revelation 14:13-20, "I heard a voice from the heaven saying, Write, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord henceforth" (Revelation 11:18; 14:1; 20:6; Psalm 2:1-6). Having smitten the earth with all plagues, Moses and Elijah lie martyred unburied before the public for three and a half days while the world rejoices, having finished their testimony in the midst of the Seventieth Week (Revelation 11:7). Then a spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon those who beheld them. And they heard a great Voice from the heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to the heaven in the Pillar of Cloud or Shekinah that led the children of Israel through the wilderness; and their enemies beheld them" (Revelation 11:5-12). "Yes, said the Spirit, that they shall rest from their labours for their works follow with them".
Revelation 11:15-19 speak of the Seventh Trump and the Sixth Seal while Revelation 16:17-21 refer to the Seventh Vial, the earthquakes that will sink Los Angeles and cleave the Mount of Olives (Isaiah 29:6; Daniel 7:13-14; Zechariah 14:4-9; Revelation 6:12; 8:5; 16:18-19). In Revelation 19–21 the Church, which was caught up to Christ in heaven in Revelation 4:1-2 reappears in the narrative following the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the sky to manifest over the Spoken Word battle of Armageddon.
Revelation 11:11-13: in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week "those who had despised Moses and Elijah and exchanged presents as their bodies lay in the street for three and a half days heard a great voice from heaven saying to Moses and Elijah, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. And in that same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth part of the city fell, and seven thousand men were killed in the earthquake: and the remnant [144,000] were terrified, and gave glory to the God of heaven".
In Matthew 23:34-39 Jesus prophesied to the non-Semitic Serpent's seed self-styled Jews and unbelieving Israelites "I am sending you prophets, and wise men, and scribes; some of them you will kill and crucify; and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city, that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, whom you slew between the temple and the brazen altar of sacrifice. Verily I say unto you, all these things shall come upon this race. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets, and stones those who are sent to you, how often would I have gathered your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you would not! Behold, your house is left to you desolate. [The Temple is no longer God's House, by "the Jews' house." For I say to you, You shall not see Me henceforth, till you say, blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord".
Revelation 11:19 records the manifestation of the Seventh Trumpet and the Sixth Seal, "And the temple of God (Gk.) 'naos' which was in heaven was opened, and there was seen in His temple the Ark of His Covenant [indicating God's favour): and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunders, and an earthquake, and a great hail" (Revelation 6:12-17; 8:5; 11:15-19; 16:17-21).
The spiritual eyes of the elect remnant will be opened in the second half of the Seventieth Week by revelation of the shadows and types, the Ark of the Covenant signifying Jesus Messiah enthroned as "KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS" (Zechariah 14:7-9; Revelation 19:17), they will declare "Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord"
This will be fulfilled by the 144,000 in the second half of the Seventieth Week. Revelation 14:14-20, "And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sitting like [Christ] the Son of man, having upon His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle (Deuteronomy 7:13-14; Daniel 7:13; Zechariah 12:9-14; Matthew 16:27-28; 24:30-31; Luke 23-28; John 19:37; Revelation 1:7). And another angel came forth out of the temple, crying with a great voice to the One sitting upon the cloud, Send forth your sickle, and reap: for the hour is come to reap; for the harvest of the earth has become dry (Joel 3:13; Mark 4:29). And the One sitting upon the cloud cast His sickle upon the earth; and the earth was reaped."
"And another angel came forth out of the temple which is in the heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came forth out of the altar having authority over the fire; and cried with a great voice to the one having the sharp sickle, saying, Send forth your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe (Joel 3:13). And the angel cast in his sickle unto the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast them into the great winepress of the anger of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came forth out of the winepress, even unto the bridles of the horses, to the distance of a thousand and six hundred furlongs".
In order to be just the Lord God must keep His laws, and there cannot be law without penalty. "Transgression of the Law is sin (unbelief)" (I John 3:4); and "the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23). Despite Pontius Pilate's protestations, "the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude, and all the people said, His blood be on us, and on our children" and to this day the Blood of Jesus Messiah has been upon Israel (Matthew 27:20-25).
The evidence of the chief priests and the Pharisees in council was: "this man does many miracles. If we let Him alone, all men will believe on Him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation. And Caiaphas, being the high priest that year, said it is expedient for us, that one Man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. And this he spoke not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; and not for that nation only, but that also He should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad" (John 11:47-52).
God deals with Israel as a nation in the Promised Land whereas He deals with us Gentiles as individuals wherever they be so long as they are in "the present Truth" . . . what Jesus is doing NOW (II Peter 1:12). In the parenthesis of Revelation 15:2-4 the nation of Israel, all elect 144,000 blood Israelites descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will fulfill their blood oath in the land of Israel (Revelation 6:11). So-called Jews who claim a matriarchal lineage, Edomite, Ashkenazim, Khazar and other impostors, will be excluded, like those who believe Rome's Babylonian trinity and false baptism in Titles are Christians; all will face the Great White Throne Judgment.
"And I saw, as it were, a sea of glass (the brazen laver Moses cast from the copper looking glasses of Israelite ladies) where the sacrifice was washed before it was offered) mingled with fire (of the Holy Ghost): and those who had gotten the victory over the (Judaeo-Roman Catholic) beast, over his (once Protestant USA) image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass (Revelation 12:11; 13:1-4, 16-18), having the harps of God (Revelation 14:2). And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God (Exodus 15), and the song of the Lamb, saying, great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are Your ways, O King of saints. Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your Name? For only You are holy: for all nations shall come and worship before You; for Your judgments are made manifest".
"In other words: We see what it means to not to receive It, Your judgment is being made manifest. So here we stand, we're washed now; we're being washed by the water after we've come through the Tribulation Period. We've took our stand for You and we believed You, and now we stand on the sea of glass, and we honor and glorify Thee as a reflection of Thy Holy Ghost. And Thy candles are true and Thy judgments is righteous" (61-0108, Revelation, Chapter Four, Part III, par. 203-206).
The following is a précis of Brother Branham's exposition of Christ's second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming to Israel from "An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages," (p. 36:2 - 42:1). Jesus' second (Gk.) 'erchomai' or physical Coming will not take place after the consummation when, together with the glorified saints of all Ages, He will step out on the atomic ashes of the wicked for a thousand years of peace (Job 40:11-12; Ezekiel 28:18; Malachi 4:1-3). The world church system has wandered far from "the present Truth".
The Coming God
Revelation 1:7, "Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen".
"He is coming. Jesus is coming. God is coming. The Prophet is coming. The Priest and King is coming. The ALL in ALL is coming. Even so, Lord Jesus, come quickly. Amen".
He is coming. He is coming in clouds, clouds of glory as when He was seen upon the Mount of Transfiguration, and His garments were shining as the power of God enfolded Him. And EVERY eye shall see Him. That means this is not the Rapture. This is when He comes to take over His rightful place as World Ruler. This is when those who have pierced Him with their creeds and denominational doctrines shall mourn, and all the people shall wail in terror because of Him Who is the Word.
This is the revelation story of Zechariah 12:9-14. Zechariah prophesied this about 2,500 years ago. It is just about to take place. Listen. "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me Whom they have pierced . . ."
Now the Gospel returning to the
JewsIsraelites when the day of the Gentiles is finished. The Gospel is ready to go back to the JewsIsraelites. [Christ's unseen (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming to us Gentiles will carry over to Revelation 11 and pick up those two witnesses, those two prophets, Moses and Elijah, turning the Gospel back to the Jewschildren of Jacob. As the JewsIsraelites brought the Message to us Gentiles in their apostasy, even so the Gentiles will take it right back to the Jewsblood descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, in Gentile apostasy], and the Rapture will come.
Now, remember what we have read in Revelation 1:7, 11:1-13 and Zechariah 12:9-14. Both come right after the tribulation. The Church of the First-born does not go through the tribulation. We know that. The Bible teaches that.
At that time it says that God is going to pour out His Spirit upon the house of Israel. It is the same Spirit that was poured upon the Gentiles in their day. "And they shall look upon He Whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourneth for his only son, and they shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his first-born. In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadad-rimmon in the valley of Megiddon. And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart . . ." and each one of the houses apart when He comes in clouds of glory at His Second Coming. Those Jews that pierced Him shall see Him as it says in Zechariah 13:6, "Whence did You get those wounds?" and He will say, "In the house of My friends." Not only will it be a mournful time for the
JewsIsraelites who rejected Him as Messiah, but it will be a mournful time for those left of the Gentiles who have rejected Him as the Saviour of this day.
The sleeping virgins will be wailing. They were virgins to the written Word but they didn't have oil in their lamps so they were cast out where there was wailing and gnashing of teeth.
In Genesis 45, Joseph meets his brethren in Egypt and reveals himself to them. Genesis 45:1-7, "Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him. And Joseph said to his brethren, I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt. Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, for God did send me before you to preserve life. For these two years has the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest. And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance." [A type of the seven years of Tribulation in Daniel's Seventieth Week and Zechariah 12].
Now remember how those sons of Jacob treated Joseph [as the non-Semitic Edomite Jews and Israelites misguided by the Talmud treated Jesus Messiah]. Now let us examine the life of Joseph while he was in Egypt, for it is here we see him as the perfect type of Christ. While in the house of the general he was falsely accused, punished and imprisoned without a cause, just like they did to Jesus. There in prison he interpreted the dream of the butler and baker who were also prisoners with him. The butler was restored to life, but the other condemned to death. Christ was imprisoned on the Cross, forsaken by God and man. On either side of Him was a thief—one died, spiritually, but the other was granted life. And notice, when Jesus was taken off the Cross, He was exalted into heaven and now sits at the right hand of the great Spirit of Jehovah. Everything Joseph did in Egypt prospered, even the jail prospered. When Jesus returns, the desert will blossom as a rose. He is the "Son of Prosperity." As no age ever prospered as the one under Joseph, so there is a time of such blessing coming on this earth as the world has never known.
Notice, that everywhere Joseph went they sounded a trumpet to announce his arrival. The people would scream, "Bow the knee to Joseph!" No matter what a man was doing, when that trumpet sounded he bowed the knee. He could have been selling something in the street, just reaching out for his money, but he had to stop and bend the knee when that trumpet blew. If he were even a performer or an actor, he would have to stop his act and bow the knee to Joseph when his presence was announced with that trumpet call. And one of these days everything in time will stand still when God's Seventh Trumpet shall sound, and the dead in Christ shall rise and everything will bow the knee then, for it is written, "Wherefore God also has highly exalted Him, and given Him a Name which is above every name; That at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father" (Philippians 2:9-11).
Notice in Egypt Joseph was given a Gentile bride and through her he received a family of two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh. Joseph asked his father to bless the two boys placing them before Jacob so that Manasseh, the first-born would be on Jacob's right and Ephraim to the left. As Jacob was about to bless them he crossed his hands so that the right hand fell upon the younger . . . God crossed my hands for the blessing which belonged to the first-born (the Israelite) was given over to the younger (the Gentile) through the Cross (crossed hands) of the Lord Jesus Christ. Galatians 3:13-14, "Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangs on a tree; That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith." The blessing of Abraham came through the Cross to the Gentiles. The Jews rejected the Cross; therefore, Jesus got the Gentile Bride.
Not all of Joseph's brethren came. Joseph could not make himself known to them until they brought little Benjamin, his full blood brother, who was missing. And when our Joseph, even Jesus, will come to the people who have kept the Commandments of God and who have returned to Palestine, His soul will be set on fire. Benjamin typifies the 144,000 Israelites from all over the earth who go back to Palestine for their redemption. They will say, "This is our God for Whom we have waited." Then they will see Him Whom they have pierced. And they will cry out in dismay, "Where did these awful wounds?" And they will wail and cry, every family apart in the agony of sorrow.
Joseph's Gentile wife and children were hidden in the palace when he revealed himself to his brethren. Christ's Gentile Bride will be caught up from the earth before the great tribulation to meet her Lord in the air. For three and one-half years while the retributive wrath of God is poured out, she will be in the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Then will He return, leaving His Bride in "His Father's house," while He makes Himself known to His brethren. At this very time, the antichrist covenant that the Jews have made with Rome will be broken (Daniel 9:27). Rome and her allies then send their troops to destroy all the God-fearing, Word-abiding
JewsIsraelites. But as they come against the city to destroy it, there will appear in the heavens the sign of the Coming of the Son of Man with His mighty armies to destroy them who have been destroying the earth (Revelation 11:19; 19:1-16). With the enemy repulsed, Jesus then comes and presents Himself to the 144,000. Having seen His mighty acts of salvation, they have come to know His power. But also seeing His wounds and knowing that they had rejected Him even to that moment, causes them to cry out in the agony of terror and fear, even as did their brethren of old when they stood before Joseph, being sore afraid that they would be killed. But as Joseph said, "Don't be angry with yourselves. It is all right. God was in it all. He did it to preserve life." Even so will Jesus speak peace and love to them.
Why did the Jews reject Jesus? God was in it all. It was the only way that He could bring out the Gentile Bride. He died on the cross to preserve the life of the Gentile Church.
When these last of Israel have been joined in love to the Lord, and the enemy has been destroyed, God will prepare His holy mountain, His new Garden of Eden for the Bride and His and her attendants for the thousand year honeymoon upon the earth. As Adam and Eve were in the Garden and did not finish out the thousand years, now Jesus our last Adam and His Eve (True Church) will fulfill all the plan of God. nl1255.htm
