Bible Believers' Newsletter 1257
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; May our Lord Jesus Christ bless you through this week's Newsletter.
Today we respond to a question by one of our precious subscribers on Revelation 12. Please take time to read it carefully as our reply travels back and forth through thousands of years and different books of the Bible. Our News section expounds the long term plans of the hidden hand; they are coming to fruition right now as redemption, the Seven Church Ages and Christ's mediation ended in 1963. The world church system is apostate and knows it not; their people have not the faintest idea that the Gentile dispensation will soon be over and have not recognized the boldness of Satan's people.
Australia was anticipating a visit from President Biden for the QUAD meeting, a diplomatic network between India, Japan, the United States and Australia, basically to worry China. The meeting was canceled because President Biden has to raise the debt ceiling to just below the seventh dimension before June 1 in order to meet its financial obligations. Failure to raise the debt ceiling from its current limit could see the US suspend its social insurance payments and the salaries of its federal and military employees. Default also threatens to wreak havoc on the global economy, affecting prices and mortgage rates in other countries. Imagine the situation when Los Angeles falls.
The news is all bad for those who are in the world with nowhere to go. Fortunately we do have a place prepared, and we know the way (John 14:1-3).
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
Western Weapons to Ukraine: Black Market for Terrorists 'on Command'?
May 18, 2023 — BBC and CNN were reporting on this calamity already in 2022 . . . up to 70% of the weaponry supplied by the West would disappear on the black market . . . Seymour Hersh said, shortly after the conflict started between Kiev and Moscow in February 2022, "Poland, Romania, other countries on the border were being flooded with US and allies-supplied weapons which were shipped to Ukraine to support the war against Russia" . . . the West was concerned that these shoulder launchers could shoot down Western civilian planes . . . Is this perhaps a plan to arm existing or new Western-founded terrorist groups, à la al-Qaeda, ISIS, the Islamic State and others—ALL created and funded by the West, mostly by the CIA, NATO and other US/UK/EU secret service organizations—so as to be ready to use these terror organization when needed by the West? . . .
Armed with Ukraine weaponry, commanded by CIA, NATO, or even the unelected European Commission, in accordance with "rules-based orders." This could be a new tentacle of the failing octopus; reaching around the globe for full spectrum dominance, trying to keep the illusion of US Western hegemony alive . . . continuing killing and maiming people by the millions, and destroying economies—as per the Great Reset and Agenda 2030 playbook. Remember the Club of Rome's doctrine of "Limits to Growth" . . . the Cult that wants to reduce the current world population by 90%, and produces highly sophisticated man-made ENMOD-type "climate changes," severe droughts, floods, cold and hot spells, earthquakes, to bring about famine, destruction of infrastructure, of economies, shifting resources from the bottom to the top and killing masses of people.

Comment: The shipment of Storm Shadow cruise missiles to Ukraine, the longest-range weapons yet received by Kiev, confirms the UK's role as provocateur-in-chief in the NATO war against Russia. The Ukrainian army is now not only capable of striking Crimea—Russia's central concern in the war—but deep into the Russian mainland. It takes delivery of these weapons on the eve of a long-anticipated counteroffensive against Russian lines . . . all that has prevented a direct war breaking out between Britain and Russia is the Kremlin's restraint, fearing the triggering of NATO's collective defence clause . . . Under Operation Orbital, begun in 2015, Britain had already trained 22,000 Ukrainian troops in the seven years before the Russian invasion. It has since trained a further 14,000. In the lead up to the war, thousands of British soldiers were deployed in Eastern Europe on permanent missions or for large-scale NATO combat exercises (wsws.org).
America's Blueprint for Global Domination: from 'Containment' to 'Pre-emptive War'
May 17, 2023 — The analysis of George F. Kennan (1948) set the groundwork . . . a direct bearing on US foreign policy and military doctrine under the Biden Administration, specifically with regard to Germany and the European Union which are currently the object of a US sponsored Act of "Economic Warfare" . . . the threats directed against Germany and the EU, emanating from the Biden White House, were formulated under the "Truman Doctrine" at the very outset of the post-war era. According to George Kennan:
"To achieve such a federation [EU] would be much easier if Germany were partitioned, or drastically decentralized, and if the component parts could be brought separately into the European Union." The military occupation of western Germany may have to go on for a long time. We may even have to be prepared to see it become a quasi-permanent feature of the European scene. In the long run there can be only three possibilities for the future of western and central Europe. One is German domination. Another is Russian domination. The third is a federated Europe, into which the parts of Germany are absorbed but in which the influence of the other countries is sufficient to hold Germany in her place. The day is not far off when we are going to have to deal in straight power concepts. . . "Straight power concepts" are now designated by the US State Department and the media as "the rules-based order" . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: At the end of World War II, the military/security complex decided that the flow of profits and power from war and threats of war were too great to be relinquished to an era of peace. This complex manipulated a weak and inexperienced President Truman into a gratuitous Cold War with the Soviet Union. The lie was created, and accepted by the gullible American people, that International Communism intended world conquest. This lie was transparent, because Stalin had purged and murdered Leon Trotsky and all communists who believed in world revolution. "Socialism in one country," declared Stalin as he rebelled against the Jewish banksters. (Now see this, this, and this).
Disastrous Proxy Wars by Great Powers create Military, Monetary, Financial and Economic Chaos Worldwide
May 17, 2023 — According to official propaganda, Russia embarked upon an 'unprovoked' war against Ukraine, on February 24, 2022. However, things are a bit more complicated, because the United States and NATO have been heavily involved in that unnecessary war since at least 2014, and credibly since 1991, as far as the US government is concerned.
First of all, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, in 1991, it is widely established through declassified documents that US Secretary of State James Baker, and the representatives of important European nations, made a solemn commitment to Russia, on February 9, 1990, that NATO would not be expanded "one inch" into Eastern Europe—conditional to Russia's acceptance of the reunification of the two Germanys.
Secondly, as professor John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago has often said (and I agree), there would not have been a Ukraine War if Joe Biden had not been in the White House. It was, indeed, President Biden's insistence on having NATO expand to the very doorsteps of Russia, with missiles pointed toward Moscow, that was the main reason why Russia felt directly threatened and why it invaded Ukraine.
Even Pope Francis arrived at the same conclusion, that the main trigger of the Ukraine War was "NATO barking at Putin's door."
Thirdly, let us remember that it was the Obama administration (2009-2017), with then Vice-President Joe Biden involved, that bankrolled, to a large extent, the overthrow of the elected pro-Russia Ukrainian government of Viktor Yanukovych, in February 2014.
This was clearly established by then US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland (a well-known neocon), who confirmed publicly, on December 13, 2013, that the US government had invested $5 billion in Ukraine, under the pretext of 'promoting democracy,' One may ask if it an accepted practice by democracies to overthrow elected governments?
Fourthly, published documents indicate that the policy of encircling Russia militarily, an act of war implicitly not allowed under the UN Charter, is a neoconservative idea originating from the Rand Corporation—a think-tank heavily financed by the military-industrial complex (MIC) and deeply involved in framing US foreign policy. Indeed, the policy of an aggressive military stand against Russia is well outlined in a 2019 report, entitled "Overextending and Unbalancing Russia." Therefore, when Defense Secretary Gen. Lloyd Austin said publicly, on April 25, 2022, that the Biden administration's objective in Eastern Europe was to "see Russia weakened" it was a clear indication that the Rand Corporation's strategy of militarily encircling Russia had become the official foreign policy of the Biden administration, even at the risk of turning such a localized conflict into a global one.
That may be a reason why people in the know do not swallow the propaganda line that the US and NATO are in Ukraine to "save democracy". In fact, there is no democracy in Ukraine, since the Ukrainian government of Volodymyr Zelensky has abolished eleven political parties . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: Without the gratuitous British "guarantee" to Poland, the Polish military dictatorship would likely have agreed to return territories stripped from Germany by the Versailles Treaty and the invasion would have been avoided.
The greatest hypocrisy was the charge of aggression against Germany when the fact of the matter is that World War 2 began when the British and French declared war on Germany. Germany conquered France and drove the British from the European Continent after the British and French started the war with a declaration of war against Germany. Full story: cariboosentinel.ca

Why China can't pull World out of a New Great Depression
May 16, 2023 — Over the past two decades since China was admitted into the WTO, its national industrial base has made unprecedented strides to emerge as the world's leading economic producer in many major areas . . . measured in real physical economic production, China has left the USA and everyone else in the dust. Therefore, the future course of industrial production in China is vital to the future of the world economy. Globalization of the world economy made it so.
Steel production is still the single best indicator of a growing real economy. In 2021, China produced more that twelve times the tonnage steel as the USA, over one billion tons. The USA, once world leader, managed a piddly 86 million tons. In tons of coal, China produces some 50% of world total coal. She controls 70% of world rare earth mining and over 90% of its processing . . . China today is far the world's largest motor vehicle producer, almost three times the size of the US at 27 million units annually . . . the list goes on.
This is merely to suggest how essential the economy of China has been to world economic growth over the past two decades . . . if China goes into deep economic contraction, the effect this time will be global . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Did Russia Vaporize Depleted Uranium Shells?
May 18, 2023 — Russia's aerial attack on the Ukrainian city of Khmelnytskyi . . . speculation believes that the increase in Gamma radiation may be a consequence of Russian bombs blasting British supplied depleted uranium rounds into dust . . . Ukraine lost an enormous quantity of munitions of various types that cannot be easily or quickly replaced . . . Whatever small advances Ukraine has managed on the flanks of Bakhmut, they do not compensate for the massive loss incurred at Khmelnytskyi . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: The Atlantic alliance is trying to promote the creation of new frontlines across Eurasia. Tensions are worsening between Moldova and Transnistria, between Georgia and the secessionist regions, and between Armenia and Azerbaijan . . . It seems that for Washington, keeping Moscow in combat and attrition is a priority . . . aid to Kiev is unlikely to cease despite possibly reducing. And even if it ceases, there will be no 'carte blanche' for the puppet state to accept negotiating or surrendering (globalresearch.ca).
Pentagon's Increased Use of Elite Military Units
May 18, 2023 — Under President Barack Obama (2009–17) covert operations and raids by American military Special Forces intensified. Organizations like the US Special Operations Forces (SOF), Navy SEALs and CIA were infiltrating different states, violating their national sovereignty in kill/capture offensives aimed ostensibly at Islamic insurgents . . . included some American citizens abroad deemed as enemies, and which was based on legal or extralegal assumptions according to classified information from president Obama . . . often focused on countries outside of Washington's influence, in efforts to align them with the Western liberal order . . . John Nagl, a US lieutenant-colonel . . . said that, in a 3 month period in 2010, US forces from the Special Operations Command (SOCOM) carried out 3,000 military operations in Afghanistan . . . entering villages in the middle of the night, in order to kill or take prisoner Islamic militants.

Unspoken Divisions within NATO, Washington wants to get rid of Erdogan
May 15, 2023 — The economic, social and geopolitical impacts of the February 2023 two earthquakes in Southern Anatolia are far-reaching. They have resulted in economic, social and political chaos in the period leading up to the May 14 presidential and parliamentary elections.
With regard to the May elections, Washington's unspoken objective is to: "Replace Erdogan" with an obedient US proxy . . . Washington's ultimate objective is to dismantle the Russia-Turkey alliance, while reintegrating Turkey back into the Atlantic Alliance as an "obedient NATO country," no more "sleeping with the enemy" . . . as well as taking full control of US-NATO naval access to the Black Sea.

Why they want to Cancel the Anniversary of Victory over Nazism
May 15, 2023 — President Putin's speech at the May 9 Military Parade in Moscow, on the 78th Anniversary of the Victory, was presented in the West as a low-key speech without revealing its real content . . . in Ukraine, Latvia, and other Eastern European countries: 27 million people died, over half of them civilians corresponding to 15% of the population (compared to the 0.3% loss of the US in all of WWII) . . . The EU has done more: it has decreed that the 9th of May is "Europe Day" . . . the Ukrainian Supreme Court ruled that the symbols of the SS Galicia division, which was guilty of horrendous crimes, are not Nazi and can therefore also be used today in demonstrations.

Comment: Every uncompromised world politician and citizen of the world . . . have kept themselves informed and abreast of the complicated historical geo-politics that exists in Ukraine . . . Especially if they've kept themselves informed and abreast over the past nine years since the American Government's [Jewish] Neo-Con-led Coup of 2014, as well as, the failed attempts ever since . . . to stop the slaughter of ethnic and Russian-speaking Russians in the Donbas by Nazi-led Ukrainians and other fascists in the Western World . . . the only possible outcome can be to the ultimate conclusion of the war in Ukraine . . . no other exit strategy. . . other than the total defeat of Russia . . . [unelected] President Biden and his worldwide Neo-Con allies and fascist Corporate Wall Street backers already know this and have no intention whatsoever of ever relenting . . . to peacefully end the war . . . the murdering mayhem will only continue until Biden, the Neo-Cons in his Administration and war mongering NATO allies . . . pull the plug on their deceitful, duplicitous proxy war . . . one doesn't have to be a skilled parliamentarian or diplomatic envoy to read between the constant lines of corporate mainstream press doublespeak to know the ultimate intentions of President Biden and his 'axis NATO allies' aren't just to "hurt or weaken Russia," as they've duplicitously-stated so many times over the past year. At all costs, if need be, to human life and all of life on Mother Earth herself, the objective is to destroy Russia and the Russian Empire. For the warmongers in America and the West, this goal is nothing less than an absolute imperative, if they are to maintain their hegemony in the world and ready themselves for the ultimate Gunfight . . . between themselves and China (globalresearch.ca).

Russia Concludes Investigations on Donbass Genocide
May 11, 2023 — After in-depth investigations, the number of civilian casualties in the Donbass genocide has finally been revealed. A Russian committee was for a long time in charge of ascertaining the precise number of dead and wounded civilians in the conflict, as well as the data of each of the identified victims. The outcome of this process exposes that thousands of civilians were murdered by the Kiev regime, thus confirming all previous reports by local sources . . .
The regime could not even argue in its favor that the civilian deaths are side effects of combat operations, as most of these deaths seem to have occurred during periods when Kiev attacked the Donbass alone, without real combat situations. This Ukrainian practice only intensified after the start of the Russian special military operation. It has been constant practice for the forces of the neo-Nazi regime to attack civilian and demilitarized areas of Donbass with missiles. Schools, hospitals, public markets and other civilian facilities without any military relevance are among the main targets of Ukrainian artillery, even in a situation of open conflict and with numerous Russian military to be targeted. Apparently, for Kiev killing civilians is a kind of "priority".
There are two reasons for this, one "strategic" and another ideological. The "strategic" factor works in partnership with the mainstream media. Kiev bombs civilian areas in false flag operations, blaming Russians for the attacks and thus seeking justifications in public opinion to receive more weapons from NATO and continue its war machine. On the other hand, the ideological factor is even stronger and more important: Kiev attacks civilian areas because the regime implemented in 2014 is deeply Russophobic, based on anti-Russian racism and the Western-sponsored project of "de-Russification" of Ukraine . . .

Biden unilaterally extends 'National Emergency' targeting Syria
May 9 2023 — On 8 May, US President Joe Biden signed a new one-year extension for the "national emergency" concerning Syria, just one day after the Arab League approved Damascus' reentry to the bloc despite Washington's objections. Initially signed in 2004 by former president George W. Bush, Executive Order 13338 classified Syria, a nation nearly 10,000km away from Washington, as an "unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States" . . . crushing US sanctions . . . continue to be enforced despite an ongoing push by the Arab world to normalize ties with the war-torn country . . . Since 2011, Syria has been the setting of a brutal war sponsored by several members of NATO and regional nations like Qatar and Saudi Arabia. This includes the ongoing occupation of large swathes of its territory by the US and Turkiye and the plundering of its natural resources and humanitarian aid by anti-government militias. While the CIA was tasked with arming and training extremist groups in Syria since late 2012, US troops officially entered the fray once Damascus asked for Russia's help to push back against ISIS in 2015 . . .

Yes, Monsanto did buy the BLACKWATER/Xe/Acadami Mercenary Group!
July 2, 2013 — No wonder that a company engaged in the "science of death" as Monsanto, which has been dedicated from the outset to produce toxic poisons spilling from Agent Orange to PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), pesticides, hormones and genetically modified seeds, is associated with another company of thugs. Almost simultaneously with the publication of this article in The Nation, La Via Campesina reported the purchase of 500,000 shares of Monsanto, for more than $23 million by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which with this action completed the outing of the mask of "philanthropy." Another association that is not surprising. It is a marriage between the two most brutal monopolies in the history of industrialism: Bill Gates controls more than 90 percent of the market share of proprietary computing and Monsanto about 90 percent of the global transgenic seed market and most global commercial seed. There does not exist in any other industrial sector monopolies so vast, whose very existence is a negation of the vaunted principle of "market competition" of capitalism. Both Gates and Monsanto are very aggressive in defending their ill-gotten monopolies.
Although Bill Gates might try to say that the Foundation is not linked to his business, all it proves is the opposite: most of their donations end up favoring the commercial investments of the tycoon, not really "donating" anything, but instead of paying taxes to the state coffers, he invests his profits where it is favorable to him economically, including propaganda from their supposed good intentions. On the contrary, their "donations" finance projects as destructive as geoengineering or replacement of natural community medicines for high-tech patented medicines in the poorest areas of the world. What a coincidence, former Secretary of Health Julio Frenk and Ernesto Zedillo are advisers of the Foundation.
Like Monsanto, Gates is also engaged in trying to destroy rural farming worldwide, mainly through the "Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa" (AGRA). It works as a Trojan horse to deprive poor African farmers of their traditional seeds, replacing them with the seeds of their companies first, finally by genetically modified (GM). To this end, the Foundation hired Robert Horsch in 2006, the director of Monsanto. Now Gates, airing major profits, went straight to the source.
Blackwater, Monsanto and Gates are three sides of the same figure: the war machine on the planet and most people who inhabit it, are peasants, indigenous communities, people who want to share information and knowledge or any other who does not want to be in the aegis of profit and the destructiveness of capitalism . . .

Japan to open NATO Liaison Office: Provocation against China & Russia
May 1, 2023 — Japanese Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi announced that his country is considering opening a NATO liaison office, demonstrating that Tokyo is deepening its ties with the US and becoming more hostile to China and Russia. Tokyo's rapprochement with NATO would strengthen the anti-China/Russia alliance and advance the US plans to create a NATO-styled organization in the Far East . . . Hayashi is using this as a weak justification for why Japan is militarizing, which directly relates to Tokyo's claims against sovereign seas and territories belonging to China and Russia . . . a path for Japan to become a member of an expanded AUKUS (Australia-United Kingdom-United States). This, in turn, will require Tokyo to strengthen its contacts with NATO. Full story: infobrics.org
Comment: An official with the Foreign Ministry's Japan Research Center, Kim Seol-hwa, said Washington is gradually pushing NATO into Asia through partnerships with regional powers. "All facts clearly show that NATO's attempt to advance into the Asia-Pacific region through military collusion with Japan has entered a dangerous implementation phase," the North Korean Foreign Ministry official continued, also pointing to other "confrontational alliances" such as the 'Quad' bloc—which Beijing has decried as an "Asian NATO"—and AUKUS pact between Australia, the UK and the US . . .

Question on Revelation 12
My question relates to Revelation 12:4 and 12:1-13. Brother Branham at one time made an error when he said seven hundred instead of "seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal" (I Kings 19:18, Romans 11:4). He said we must prove all things by two or three witnesses of Scripture.
Response: Brother Branham was a mortal human being like you and me, and he made mistakes. Unlike us he was a prophet and the greatest prophet since Enoch who prophesied the sole avenue of salvation from extinction by the Great Flood. Likewise Brother Branham "proclaimed the day of vengeance of our God" warning of the Great Tribulation, Armageddon and the consummation (Isaiah 61:2b). He "finished the mystery of God" to reveal God's one provided way to escape His wrath—promised, tried and proven by Enoch who "walked with God: and he was not; for God translated him without death" (Genesis 5:24; Amos 3:3; John 17:11; I Corinthians 15:35-58; I Thessalonians 4:14-18). Jesus said, "Truly I say, among them that are born of women there has not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is less in the kingdom of heaven is greater than John (because we rest in the finished work of Christ); John introduced Jesus' first physical or (Gk.) 'erchomai' Coming. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, as violent men seek to take it under control by force (in the waterless pastures of Judaeo-Roman Catholic organized religion through Balaamism and Nicolaitanism). For all the prophets and the Law prophesied until John. And if you will receive it, John was the Elijah (of Isaiah 40:1; Malachi 3:1a; 4:5-6a; Matthew 11:7-14; 17:12a) who was to come".
Brother Branham was the Elijah of Amos 3:7; Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11, I Corinthians 13:10-15, Revelation 3:14 and 10:7. He restored the faith of our apostolic fathers, "finished the mystery of God" and introduced Christ's unseen second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming. Being a vindicated prophet, whatever he spoke in the Name of the Lord was THUS SAITH THE LORD and must come to pass because he was expressing God's eternal thoughts which are real and cannot change (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8).
"Mohammad was not a prophet and by definition his hadith cannot all be true because multiple hadith about the same circumstances contradict each other. It is not necessary for one to decide which of those hadith are right and which are wrong. Since they contradict, they cannot all be true, although it is logically possible that they could all be wrong" (mohammedamin.com).
Question: Brother Branham said, the Devil dragged two-thirds of the stars of Heaven but the Scriptures said one third of the stars of Heaven where cast with the Dragon's tail with reference to Revelation 12:4. And there are some such minor errors as when he said nine out of twelve spies instead of two out of twelve. Now the issue l have is the brothers here say the prophet never made mistakes if he said two-thirds and then we follow that. Please help.
Response: This is a transcript of the quotation to which our Brother refers: "And now in Josephus, his writings, he said . . . Now, here was his interpretation of these "sons of God" that take daughters of men. He said that the fallen spirits that were on the earth . . .
Now, you know the—in the Revelations the 11 chapter—or—or the 7th . . . No, beg your . . . 12th chapter of Revelations, the woman standing in the sun . . . "The red dragon put his tail around two thirds of the stars and pulled them to the earth." We realize that Satan in the beginning set up a kingdom in the northlands to be more beautiful than what the—than what the Michael was, and there was a day he declared war in heaven. And he pulled two thirds of the angelic beings with him. Is that right?
That's the reason we're only a minority. I mean the—the—the side—the small side of the people this morning, in the Christian realm, the Holy Ghost born people, because they are in the little part. That's right" (Questions and Answers (54-0103M, par. 115).
This was the man William Branham speaking; this and three similar quotations are obviously not prophecy because they do not match God's written Word. Were we to read the Bible as we read a newspaper, it would make no sense because the Bible is divided into parentheses of past, present and future interspersed and separated sometimes by decades or thousands of years.
To illustrate my point, Revelation 9:13-21 describes the Sixth Trumpet which began sounding on Armistice Day and will continue until the Seventh Trump sounds. Revelation 10:1 – 11:13 is a parenthesis between the Sixth and Seventh Trumpets, that is from 1918 to 2024. Revelation 10 describes a vision John described between AD95 and 96 wherein he saw, heard and spoke with Brother Branham. This has literally been coming to pass from AD1963 to the Present day. Chapter 11:1-13 is set after the close of the Gentile dispensation to beyond the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. Revelation 11:15-19 marks the Seventh Trumpet and Sixth Seal which will end the Gentile dispensation. Read it yourself, you will see it is God in simplicity.
Please read Genesis 48 and 49 before proceeding as this is the fulfillment of Jacob/Israel's prophecy when he blessed Joseph's sons in Egypt and God crossed his hands so that the birthright was given to the younger son as Israel's birthright passed through Calvary's Cross to us Gentiles.
We cannot divine the election and calling of God. The precedence of the birthright is given to Ephraim, the younger son, and he became the head of the northern ten tribes. We saw this in Shem who was preferred to his elder Japheth, Jacob who was preferred to his elder Esau, Isaac was preferred to Ishmael, Joseph was preferred to Jacob/Israel's firstborn Reuben, and his double portion and birthright were bestowed upon Joseph to accommodate the double portion of Ephraim and Manasseh (I Chronicles 5:1). Finally, David was preferred to all of his brethren.
Ephraim and Manasseh were born of a Gentile mother, Asenath (which means "belonging to the goddess Neith"), she was the daughter of Potipherah the priest of On (Heliopolis), the religious centre of Ra the Sun god. The woman is the mother Church so when Israel rejected and murdered Messiah the same Holy Spirit that crossed Jacob/Israel's hands passed the birthright from the Israel nation to elect Gentile believers of Adam's race. Thus the Son of God married a Gentile Wife, and His servant nation will be blind until the Church meets the Lord in Clouds of glory for the Wedding Supper in the Air: the remnant 144,000 of the woman's seed who keep the Commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ will be born-again, and then hunted down like dogs, surrendering their lives for their testimony as "all the people" of Israel swore in Matthew 27:25.
Revelation 12:1-5, "And there appeared a great portent in heaven; a woman clothed with the Sun, and the Moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars".
The Moon represents the Law which is a shadow of the S_O_N-light and grace. On the Day of Pentecost AD30 "about three thousand souls were added to the hundred and twenty who were born-again in the upper room" Acts 1:13; 2:41), exercising free moral agency to inaugurate the Body or Church of Jesus Christ. The Law is now under the feet of the Woman, the New Testament Church crowned by the doctrine of the twelve apostles and prophets (Matthew 19:28).
In 4BC "the woman Mary being with child cried travailing to bear Jesus Messiah, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns. [This was Imperial Rome for the seven crowns were upon the heads of seven deified Emperors "And they are seven leaders: five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come; when he comes he must remain a short space." Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula and Claudius had fallen; Nero was ruling at the start of the Ephesian Church Age when John was writing—"and one was yet to come"—Galba (who reigned seven months and six days). Revelation 17:8-11 introduces Papal Rome and the eighth head which is the pope—"the beast that was, and is not . . . and goes into perdition" one pope dies "and is not" then another pope is crowned "and he is"]. The red dragon is Rome, "and his tail [the tale that he told—by deception you shall do war (John 8:44)] drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth: and [under Herod the Great] the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, to devour her child as soon as it was born".
In Revelation 17 Jesus informed us that the seven heads are the seven mountains on which the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church sits, and the ten horns are the nations of Western and Eastern Rome into which Imperial Rome divided: the Almani (Germany), Franks (France), Saxons (England), Visgoths (Spain), Burgundians (Switzerland), Lombards (Italy), Seur (Portugal), Heruli (Scandinavians in the Balkans), Vandals (a Germanic people who first inhabited southern Poland. In the fifth century they established kingdoms on the Iberian Peninsula, Mediterranean islands and North Africa), and Ostrogoths (German tribes north of the Black Sea). These are the "ten toes" of the image of Nebuchadnezzar's god, the prophet Daniel 2:40-44. "The Fourth Gentile World Empire shall be strong as iron [Rome]: forasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things: and as iron that breaks all these, it shall break in pieces and bruise. And in that you saw the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, it will be a divided kingdom; but it will have in it the toughness of iron, forasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly brittle. And whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave to one another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever".
On this side of the Great Flood we have Cain's race born of incest twixt Ham and Noah's Cainite wife Naamah—absent the Book of Life and irredeemable. And we have Noah's three Adamite sons by his first wife—Japheth, Shem and Ham. "The third part of the stars of heaven" deceived by Satan's "tale" are Semitic Israelites—Shem (Matthew 15:9; Revelation 9:15, 18; 12:17). Jesus said, "In vain do they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." Pharisaism is Judaism and follows the Babylonian Talmud not the Old Testament which the rabbis consider of little purpose. Satan still "does war by means of deception" thus Israelites living outside the Land of the Covenant are without the Covenant. Most Israelites and Adamic so-called Jews will perish according to their oath (Matthew 27:25; John 11:47-54). However statistics in Jewish encyclopedias assure us that very few Jews are Semitic.
"And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod: and her child was caught up unto God and to His throne" (Acts 1:9-10). "And the woman fled into the wilderness of America, where she had a place prepared of God [God prepared America for freedom of religion], that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days (of years from the creed issued as the Catholic faith in 360 + 1260 = 1620 Plymouth Rock). Brother Branham said, "I've sent a persecution here and a persecution there, and I've run the Jews and drove them as hard as I could. And they've drove back in. Many Jews in the United States (which they won't escape from) . . ." (54-1401M, Questions & Answers, par. 234-235; 54-0516, Questions & Answers, par. E-67).
Revelation 12:1-6 is a parenthesis instructing 144,000 elect Israelites that "the blessing of Abraham" was not restricted to the Gentile Abraham and his physical descendents. For "flesh and blood cannot [justify a man so that he might] inherit the Kingdom of God . . . for the just shall live by faith alone" as Paul expounded in Galatians 3:7-12, 16-17. "Know and rest assured that all of Adam's race who live by faith are children of Abraham. Foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, Genesis 12:1-3 and 22:18 preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, ALL nations [of Adam's race] shall be blessed in you. So then those who are of the faith of Adam's KINSMAN Redeemer, Jesus Messiah, are blessed with faithful Abraham. And all who are seeking justification by the works of the Law are under the curse: for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and practice them" (Deuteronomy 27:26). Now it is evident that no man is justified and brought into right standing with God by the Law, for the righteous shall live by faith. And the Law is not of faith; on the contrary, He who practices them shall live by them . . . Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and his seed. God did not say, and to seeds, plural; but to one, and to your Seed, that is Christ. And the Law, which began four hundred and thirty years after the promise, cannot invalidate a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to make the promise of none effect".
Under the Law Jesus Messiah commanded the twelve, "Go not to the Gentiles nor enter a Samaritan city [to preach], but go rather to the lost sheep of the House of Israel" (Matthew 10:5-6). This emphatic limitation seems at first sight at variance with Jesus' words to the Roman centurion in Matthew 8:11-12, "Many shall come from the east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. But the children of the kingdom [Israelites] will be cast into outer darkness: there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." However they were obliged to tread the roads of Samaria in their journeys to and from Galilee, and Jesus had already taken His disciples into the city of Sychar in Samaria, and told them "Lift up your eyes, and look at the fields, that they are white for harvest" (John 4:35). The limitation was confined to the mission on which they were now sent and recognized the priority of Israel in God's dealing with mankind, "to the Judean first, and also to the Gentile" (Romans 2:10). The disciples were as yet unfitted to begin a work that required wider thoughts and hopes than they had yet attained. It was necessary that they should first minister to the lost sheep of the House of Israel before the nation rejected Messiah. Thereafter, under grace, they should seek an election from sheep "not of this fold . . . they shall hear My voice; and there will be one fold, and one Shepherd" (John 10:16; Matthew 28:19).
This parenthesis is an historical review from the birth of Jesus Christ to the birth of His Body the Church, so that the 144,000 elect Israelites will understand and appreciate that each stem from Israelite stock. In His own ascension Christ was, "caught up unto God, and to His throne" and He will rule the nations with an iron rod unto the renewed Heavens and renewed earth to be shared by the Church in its increase of faithful Israelites and Gentiles in Adam's race (Revelation 2:27). It notes the persecution of Imperial Rome and points to the rabbinical deceit that led Israel to apostatize. From its inauguration on the Day of Pentecost to the Thyatira Church Age which commenced in about AD606 the majority of Christians were Israelites, thereafter the Church suffered such persecution from Papal Rome that her Semitic establishment daughters fled to the wilderness and Christ's Body became mainly non-Semitic Gentiles.
Revelation 12:1-6 describes the transition of the "woman" under Law to the "woman" Mary; persecution by Imperial Rome as the red dragon masking Satan, Christ's crucifixion and ascension, the "woman" Grace, the transition of Imperial Rome to Papal Rome (Revelation 13:1-4), and the flight of the "women" Israel and Protestant "woman" Grace to freedom of worship in America.
Emperor Constantine organized the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church at the Hegelian dialectic of the First Nicaea Council of 325. In 376, unmanageable numbers of Goths and other non-Roman people, fleeing the Huns, entered the Empire. In 395, after winning two destructive civil wars, Theodosius I died, leaving a collapsing army, and the Empire, still plagued by Goths, divided between the warring ministers of his two incapable sons. Further barbarian groups crossed the Rhine and other frontiers and, like the Goths were not exterminated, expelled or subjugated. The armed forces of the Western Empire became few and ineffective, and despite brief recoveries under able leaders, central rule was never effectively consolidated.
By 476 the Western Roman Emperor wielded negligible military, political, or financial power, and had no effective control over the scattered Western domains that could still be described as Roman. Barbarian kingdoms established their own power in much of the area of the Western Empire. In 476, the Germanic king Odoacer deposed the last emperor of the Western Roman Empire in Italy, and Romulus Augustulus and the Senate sent the imperial insignia to the Eastern Roman Emperor Zeno.
The "war in heaven" in Revelation 12:7 refers to the close of the Gentile dispensation at the sound of the Seventh Trumpet, manifestation of the Sixth Seal and the Seventh Vial.
Now to answer our Brother's question on Revelation 12:4, Satan the Dragon deceived Shem "the third part of man" by rabbinical teaching according to the blasphemous manmade guesswork of the Babylonian Talmud which is contrary to the Law and the Prophets. For neglecting to prove or disprove the Talmud by two or three witnesses of Moses and the prophets (Deuteronomy 17:6) "the third part of man" borne this sin on his shoulders since Calvary.
Turning to the era from last half of the twentieth century to the first quarter of the twenty-first century, while stumbling over chapters and verses in his determination to expound Revelation 12:7 the Prophet read, "there was a day when Jesus declared war in heaven." Could this have been March 8, 1963 when "the mystery of God was finished," redemption was over, seven Church Ages and Christ's mediation were fulfilled, and (Gk.) 'chronos' time ended (Revelation 10:4-7)? This was when [the dragon] pulled the last two thirds of the angelic beings—Japheth and Ham with him in universal apostasy according to Revelation 3:15-20 and II Timothy 3:1 – 4:4! Is this right?"
Brother Branham said, "That's the reason we're only a minority. I mean the—the—the side—the small side of the people this morning, in the Christian realm, the Holy Ghost born people, because they are in the little part. That's right" (Questions and Answers (54-0103M, par. 115).
Remember that John represents Christ's end-time Bride throughout the Book of Revelation, so where you read "I" or "John" write your name, for that is you.
Let us turn back to the close of the Laodicean Church Age in March, 1963. Revelation 4:1, "After the close of the Laodicean Church Age I looked, and, behold, a door standing open in heaven—Christ waiting for His end-time Bride: and the first Voice which I heard was like the sound of a trumpet talking with . . . your name . . . which said, Come up here [in the Spirit to the Day of the Lord (Revelation 1:10)], I will show you what must take place after the Church Ages of P_A_R_T Word and Christ's intercession for ignorance. Immediately I was in the Spirit: and behold, a throne was standing in heaven, and One sat on the throne."
"And He who was seated looked like a jasper and a sardine stone; and there was a rainbow around the throne, like an emerald in appearance. And around about the throne were twenty-four thrones: and upon the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; with crowns of gold on their heads. And out of the throne proceed lightning and thunders and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like crystal: [indicating redemption was over: like the 144,000 elect Israelites we were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary] and in the midst and around the throne were four cherubim (Ezekiel 1:5-21; 10:12; Revelation 7:1, 11) full of eyes before and behind. . ."
The twenty-four elders clothed with white raiment wore crowns of gold on their heads; they were not sinless angelic beings who never had to overcome for in Revelation 5:9-14 they sing songs of redemption, they were redeemed men (Matthew 19:28, Revelation 2:10, 3:21, 20:4, II Timothy 4:8, and I Peter 5:2, 4).
Let's read Daniel 7:9, "I beheld until the thrones [cushions] were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head was like pure wool: and His throne was ablaze with flames, (the emerald fire of the Shekinah) and the wheels of the throne were flashing like the fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before the divine Judge. Many thousands ministered to Him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him to be judged: the judges were seated, and the books of the sinners and the Book of Life were opened" (Revelation 20:12).
When Daniel saw the vision in 555BC the thrones were empty, but when
John. . . you . . . saw the vision of the Day of the Lord two thousand five hundred years later, following our translation the Throne was occupied by Jesus, and the thrones for the redeemed New and Old Testament saints were occupied. See? Daniel saw the vision five hundred years before the birth of Christ.
Jesus promised, "I will grant He who overcomes to sit with Me on My throne (the Millennium), as I also overcame, and am seated with My Father in His throne (in heaven)" (Revelation 3:21). "I took the Holy Spirit within My body and overcame all the things of the world (through the temptation) for "the fullness of the godhead bodily dwells in Me as all power in Heavens and earth is given unto My hands," He said ALL the power! Then God is powerless if He's another person. And Jesus comes from Heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His Saints, and the Bible says that "the Heavens was empty for the space of a half hour." Revelation 8:1, the unwritten Seventh Seal. Where is this big fellow, God, then? Uh-huh. See? He's in Christ" (60-1299, the Sardisean Church Age, par. 96).
Our precious Brother enquired about Revelation 12:1-13, verse 13 is at the start of Daniel's Seventieth Week and the cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary for our reception. "The great dragon is cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him" (Isaiah 34:4) his accusing days are over. The Mount of Olives will cleave and Israel will soon be utterly defeated; there will shortly be a mass exodus of non-Semitic Israeli self-styled Jews making it possible for Jacob's children to repatriate the Promised Land without fear of Jewry.
Revelation 12:10-14, "And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying. Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, who accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and the Word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives even to the death" (Matthew 27:25; Revelation 6:11). "Therefore rejoice O heavens, and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and to the sea! For the Devil is come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast to the earth, he persecuted the "woman" which brought forth the man child [signifying elect Israelites]. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle [Moses and Elijah, (Zechariah 4:11-14; Matthew 24:31; Revelation 11:3-12)] that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place [Israel], where she is nourished [by the revelation of the Seven Trumpet mysteries] for a time, and times, and half a time [throughout the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week], from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. [The forces of Papal Rome and her US image (Hosea 5:10; Revelation 13:1-10, 14-18; 17:15)]. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth (Zechariah 14:3-5; Revelation 14:1). And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ".
Brother Branham said, "This shows the power of the Roman Catholic Church and what she will do through organization. Remember this is the false vine. Let it name the Name of the Lord, it does so only in a lie. Its headship is not of the Lord but of Satan. It finally ends up completely identified with the beast. The whore riding on the scarlet beast distinctly shows her power is the god of force (Satan) and not our God, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 13:17 shows that she will gain absolute control of the commerce of the earth, for no man can buy or sell apart from her. This is borne out in Revelation 18:8-17 which shows her involvement with kings, princes, merchants, [oligarchs], all of whom have to do with Rome and commerce. From Revelation 13:14, we learn that the beast spreads his influence through Vatican II, the image built from October 11 1962 to December 8 1965, a worldwide ecumenical council wherein all the organized churches and all religions will work together with the Judaeo-Roman Catholic Church.
One Good Friday very soon an earthquake of unprecedented magnitude since man was on earth will sink an immense section of earth's crust taking Los Angeles beneath the Pacific Ocean. This will mark the close of the Gentile dispensation. The US dollar and fiat currencies will crash and the world economy will collapse. Martial law will be imposed in all nations; on the third day the resurrection of the sleeping Church Age saints will commence, and after fifty days Christ's end-time Bride will be translated. Thereafter Russia will invade and garrison mainland USA with the object of restoring sanity, peace and prosperity. As right of conquest Russia will demand supreme authority through Rockefeller's United Nations Organization to maintain troops in the USA like the US in Germany and in Japan.
Study history and you will discover that everything is franchised worldwide. Rockefellesr have the global franchise on communication and education. These were the findings of an investigation into subversive activities of the tax-exempt foundations. By the 1960's, many agencies sought to establish a position for genocide-planning that might reasonably be expected to become a principal US government policy, whether any given President or the Congress at any given time, knew it, or liked it. Among these agencies were the World Wildlife Fund of Princes Philip, Charles, Bernard and the Habsburg family, the Population Crisis Committee of the Draper Fund, the Aspen Institute, etc., Eureka! It is mRNA bioweapons.
Ever since the continents started interacting politically, some five hundred years ago, Eurasia has been the center of world power. A power that dominates 'Eurasia' would control two of the world's three most advanced and economically productive regions . . . rendering the Western Hemisphere and Oceania geopolitically peripheral to the world's central continent. About 75% of the world's people live in 'Eurasia,' and most of the world's physical wealth is there in its enterprise and beneath its soil. Furthermore, 'Eurasia' accounts for about three-fourths of the world's known energy resources.
The non-Semitic Jewry of the City of London has been warring over Eurasia since their invasion from lower Mongolia centuries before they became 'Jews.' "By deception you shall do war"—spending the blood and treasure of Goyim ignorantly fighting Jewry's proxy war against Russia in the Ukraine. Do you see scripture coming to pass in real time? The US and the City want to conquer, plunder and rule Eurasia including China which wants to trade and Russia which desires to live in peace. Rome wants to rule the world from Jerusalem and religious blood Israelites desire to repatriate the Land of their Covenant for their redemption.
This is where the then Devil-incarnate Pope will step in; his enemy is Communism that always follows the devastation of Catholicism. He will confirm a covenant with Jewry as Daniel 9:27 foretold and refinance the US dollar with gold backing. Jewish oligarchs need Rome's Gold to refinance the US dollar, without which their great paper wealth of agreements, mortgages, contracts, US treasuries, fiat money etc., will dissolve and their fraudulent fractional reserve usury banking system will fail. Jewry and the Judaeo-Catholic church Rome each want to rule the world from Jerusalem and Rome will authorize them to build their third temple.
Jewry's worldwide media monopoly will spread the lie that Russia plans to establish a communist world government, which having suffered, overcame and escaped Judaeo-communism is egregious. Joseph Goebbels wrote of the Jews who ruled the corrupt Weimar Republic, "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State." This was neither Goebbels' nor Nazi policy.
Brother Branham prophesied that the Jews' UN in New York will acclaim Rome's then Devil-incarnate Pope inaugural president of world government: Russia will withdraw and Rome will rule the world (II Thessalonians 2:3; Revelation 6:8; 17:8, 11). He said, "I believe, one of these glorious days, when this united confederation of church goes together, and the new pope is brought out of the [United Nations in New York], United States and put over there [Jerusalem] according to prophecy, then they'll form an image like unto the beast (54-1219E, Acts of the Holy Spirit, par. 87). nl1257.htm
