Bible Believers' Newsletter 786
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it is a tremendous encouragement to see you again.
This week we commence a new series"Revelation Chapter 19." The first four verses alone have taken two week's study, and by the grace of God I believe the understanding we present today is more acute than what we have seen previously.
Do not waste your time trying to 'fix' a world which is falling apart, redeem what precious time you have left. There are two vines within the framework of the church that have drifted further apart with increasing bitterness toward the true vine on the part of the false. The false vine does not hold a monopoly over Death whose creeping paralysis and impotence is active even in the true vine because it has drifted from the unadulterated Truth of this end time Message; and no true believer is any stronger and spiritually healthy and alive than his knowledge of and adherence to the pure Word of God, as seen by multitudes of examples in the Old Testament. Organization has brought the death of membership for the leadership of the Holy Spirit is deposed and the Word replaced by the "letter without the Spirit".
When Israel entered into unlawful alliances with the world, and formed fellowships by marriagemulticulturalismthe day finally came when the world took over and Babylon carried away the people of God into captivity. They went into captivity having a priesthood, a temple and the Word, but when they returned they had rabbis, a theological order of Pharisees, a synagogue, and the Talmud. And when Jesus came they were so corrupt that He called them of their father, the Devil. In this age we see the same thing happening, and as "all Israel was not Israel," but a little group was true Spiritual Israel, so there remains a little group of true saints in the circle of this Message. So "study to make your calling and election sure".
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.

Woolwich London Killing: Terrorism or False Flag?
May 24, 2013 Reports called what happened "the first domestic Al Qaeda-inspired attack since the July 7, 2005 (so-called 7/7) underground bombings" . . . The real attack was a false flag. It was done to heighten fear. At issue was enlisting public sentiment to keep Britain allied with Washington's imperial wars. . . "Scotland Yard had intelligence warnings of the attacks a short time before they occurred." No action was taken. . . Fifty-two people died. Over 700 were injured . . .
False flags are longstanding pre-war tactics. They're US/Israeli specialties. Britain's an active co-conspirator. Muslim extremism was blamed for Wednesday's London killing. We've seen this all before. . . A terrorist alert was imposed. Heightened security steps were taken. These measures don't commonly follow street killings. It doesn't matter how gruesome. Most incidents get scant coverage. Many go unnoticed. . . Many awakened "to this amazing Shakespearean play that has unfolded in Woolwich, London where all the actors were so bad they would not even qualify for an interview as an extra in some third rate movie!!" . . .

As It was in the Days of Noah
March 14, 2013 Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be at the Coming of the Son of man" (Matthew 24:37). And as we read Genesis 6:1-13 and look around us, we find His prophecy has come to pass. In the days of Noah God destroyed life on earth because multiculturalism wrought miscegenation between the descendants of Cain and the children of Adam, which is genocide to Adam's race because the offspring of such unions are Cainites, and not in the Book of Life.
Someone sent this youtube with the comment: "Don't be fooled by the first minute of this video, watch it to the end! Hard to believe this is actually taking place in Great Britain. Is America going to be next in line?"
This is God's unchanging Word coming to pass. This is an end time SIGN promised by the Prophet Jesus. The writer says:
> "The root cause is the political stupidity. The politicians are selling one European nation after another for the short term benefit of the financial system. The financial system (new age slavery) forces women in reproductive age to labour for business profitability. This results in historical low birthrates."
> "Instead of correcting their foolery, the politicians, media moguls, academic idiots and money handlers allow our lands to be invaded by Afro-Asiatic aliens. The aliens steal our lands, while politicians do not care to admit the catastrophic damage their policy has caused to their respective nations. The alien immigration only cements the population loses and stimulates more alien immigration. There will be no end to this political idiocy without organized resistance".
The cause of this problem is apostasy, we were conquered in 1688; ever since we have been ruled from behind the scenes by the children of Cain who have us under the power of their fraudulent Babylonian fractional reserve banking racket, under bondage to their criminal United Nations Organization, and Talmudic law of the BAR. Their boast is that they did away with Australia's selective immigration legislation, which was the envy of the whole world. They have enticed us to expatriate our productive industrial base so that financially we are beholden to international banksters for our very livelihood and may not now impose tariff barriers to revive industry and restore self-sufficiency.
This was engineered by the 'hidden hand' who lead us Goyim by the nose like the 'cattle' they believe we are. The aliens they impose on us are mostly good people but pawns brought into once Christian lands by policy and the rape of their own lands by 'the City of London' that also manipulates a fanatical minority of 'useful idiots' deployed to hasten the 'hot stage' of the present World War III planned in 1871 between political Islam and political Zionism. After they have destroyed one another the 'hidden hand' will "unleash the Nihilists and Atheists, and provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil".
This is the result of nominal Christians reasoning against the Absolute of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who sent the Prophet William Branham in these last days with warning and the one way to escape. Apostate churches will preach these Scriptural FACTS, but friendship with the world is enmity with God's Word (Romans 8:6-8).

'The True Story of the Bilderberg Group' and what they may be planning now
May 15, 2013 For over 14 years, Daniel Estulin has investigated and researched the Bilderberg Group's far-reaching influence on business and finance, global politics, war and peace, and control of the world's resources and money.
His book, "The True Story of the Bilderberg Group," was published in 2005 and is now updated in a new 2009 edition. He states that in 1954, "the most powerful men in the world met for the first time" in Oosterbeek, Netherlands, "debated the future of the world," and decided to meet annually in secret. . . Early in its history, Bilderbergers decided "to create an 'Aristocracy of purpose' between Europe and the United States (to reach consensus to rule the world on matters of) policy, economics, and (overall) strategy." NATO was essential for their plansto ensure "perpetual war (and) nuclear blackmail" to be used as necessary. Then proceed to loot the planet, achieve fabulous wealth and power, and crush all challengers to keep it.
The Group's grand design is for "a One World Government (World Company) with a single, global marketplace, policed by one world army, and financially regulated by one 'World (Central) Bank' using one global currency" . . . In the past, Estulin's sources proved accurate. . . Watch for further updates from him as new information leaks out on what the world's power elites have planned going forward.

Comment: Note that this activity is not restricted to west coast USA but along the New Madrid Fault in the east. This is how I see Brother Branham's prophecy of floods inundating Kentuckydoubtless because "No prophet is accepted in his own country"and the sinking of Florida are being fulfilled.
Revelation 19 Part I
In prophetic allusion to Revelation 17:16-18 where "the kings of the earth" or Black Nobility abhor and desert the Judaeo-Roman church to nuclear annihilation by Judaeo-Communist Russia Psalm 2:1-3 asks: "Why do the nations conspire and the peoples devise an empty scheme? The kings of the earth will take a stand, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, "Let us break their chains, and free ourselves from this slavery to God".
Brother Branham explained, "Now Revelation, the first three chapters deals with the Church; then the Church disappears; we see it no more until the end time. From Revelation 1 to 3 is the church; Revelation 4 to 19 is Israel a nation; and 19 to 22 is both together, and the plagues and the warnings and so forth at the end: set in three parts. And we're taking the first three chapters pertaining to the Church, and the Church Age that we're living in" (Revelation Chapter One, p. 13:24).
"Now Revelation, the first three chapters deals with the church." The Church Ages date from Titus' invasion of Jerusalem in AD70 following Pentecost AD33 as seen in this diagram of the Body of Christ before He revealed the mysteries of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals. The double line Alpha is the foundation of Christ's Body the Church which is patterned after God's second Bible, the Great Pyramid (I Corinthians 3:11-13; Ephesians 2:20). Alpha represents the brief dispensation of Pentecost antitypical of the last six days of Israel's Feast of Unleavened Bread, signifying the clear faith held by the apostolic saints. The Scriptures beneath this diagram explain how Christ has built His Body through seven sabbaths, rests, baptisms with the Holy Spirit, or Church Ages of PART-Word typed by Israel's Feast of Pentecost. In the office of Son of God Christ mediated for His elect on account of their ignorance of the fullness of the Word. The Church Ages ended in apostasy at the end Laodicea as indicated by the breach between the completed PART-Word Body and the Capstone which represents Christ's end-time Bride. Brother Branham stood in the Breach and revealed "that which is perfect [or complete]" the fullness of the Word as Christ revealed the Seven Thunders to him (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7). His Message is the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6, which is the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 confirmed by the heavenly Voice of Revelation 18:4 calling the virgins out of Rome and her apostate (once) Protestant daughter churches "into the unity of the faith" forming the Capstone that completes the Body (Ephesians 4:13). The "shout" initiates the threefold PROCESS of the 'rapture' Paul described in I Thessalonians 4:14-18 and Ephesians 1:10-23, that brings us to maturity in the fullness of the Word for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:46-57).
"Then the Church disappears; we see it no more until the end time. From Revelations 1 to 3 is the church." This diagram illustrates Christ's major offices. He visited Israel in the prophetic office Son of man; rejected and crucified He ceased dealing with Israel as a nation except under the Seven Trumpet judgments of Daniel 9:26, Matthew 24:4-13, Revelation 8:2, 6-13; 9:1-21; 11:15-19 and the great tribulation of the Sixth Seal. From the Day of Pentecost when the Church was born (Acts 2:1-4), the Lord extended grace with new birth to whosoever will in Adam's race and Christ ministered in the priestly office Son of God and Mediator until the close of Laodicea. This diagram names the angels to each Age, the duration of their lives and the now historic Church Ages. After Laodicea ended as a move of God the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ the fullness of the Word, not Jesus the Man, back to earth in W_O_R_D form through the mouth of His prophet William Branham. Once again He is present in the prophetic office Son of Man, however He is not "Proclaiming the acceptable year of the Lord" to Israel, but through the Voice of the seventh angel He is proclaiming "the day of vengeance of our God" (Isaiah 61:2). As Son of Man He was crowned "King of Kings" by the New Testament saints in theophanyyour angel too was therewhen He fulfilled the part of our Kinsman Redeemer by claiming the Book of Life which is the Title Deed to all He has redeemed (Revelation 5:6-14). As Son of Man He is no longer the Lamb, but "the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David"; He is also "Judge" (John 5:27). As indicated above, Christ's unseen second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel will also be in the Prophetic office Son of Man by the fullness of the Word revealed to 144,000 elect Israelites (NOT Jews or Israelis) by the prophets of Zechariah 4, Matthew 24:31 and Revelation 11.
As this diagram explains, we live in the holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel's Pentecostal Feast, following the seven sabbaths. During the Church Ages when the Bible was sealed and the saints possessed only PART Word they 'worked' to understand the meaning of Scripture; as we now have the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication: THUS SAITH THE LORD by God's Prophet; servile work is forbidden and we rest on the revelation of His Message in this holy convocation. This diagram shows "the pyramid is capped by the seven thunders" and compares the Old Testament type of Leviticus 23:9-21 with its New Testament antitype, the Gentile dispensation. As you can see, the elect Church of PART-Word saints was completed when the last saint ordained to the PART Word Body was born-again in March, 1963 (Revelation 1-3). They "disappear" from the Bible and are seen no more in till they metaphorically "follow Christ on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean." As the diagram shows there is also a Bride predestinated to be born of the fullness of the Word in this holy convocation of the Seventh Seal (Revelation 8:1) who does not require mediation.
Throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ's end-time Bride. We know this is so because Brother Branham was the angel of Revelation 1:1, the sole person to whom Christ revealed the mystery of the Seven Seals. Thus it was he who John saw and heard in the visions on Patmos Island between AD95 and 96 and recorded in symbols of the Temple of Old Jerusalem, itself a type of Christ and His Church who comprise the Temple of New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:22). We know John represents Christ's end-time Bride because He was commanded to "Seal up those things which the Seven Thunders uttered, and write them not. . . But in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets" (Revelation 10:4, 7; Daniel 12:4, 9). The Church Age saints were complete and sealed to the first resurrection when Christ descended upon Mount Sunset with the open Book on March 8, 1963 and caught up Brother Branham into a constellation or alignment with the previous six angels (Revelation 10:1-3). This indicated the fullness of the Word presaged by the Pillar of Cloud seen by the public on February 28, 1963 (Genesis 1:14; Psalm 19:1; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7) for a man and his Message are one. From March 17 to 24 ten days after the close of the Laodicean Church Age, Brother Branham delivered The Revelation of the Seven Seals for us, Christ's end-time Bride. When we are born again by the "shout," we too are caught up in the Spirit or raptured into heavenly places to see "things which must be after [the Church Ages]" (Revelation 4:1 to Revelation 19) as signified by the prophet John.
Christ's end-time Bride is already raptured at the close of Laodicea because we are a finite number, and unlike the Church Age saints were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary. "The Church goes up in the fourth chapter and does not return until the nineteenth chapter; that's after the tribulation period when God calls out the Israelites. That's right. And like Enoch; he went up before one drop of rain ever hit the earth. He was gone and then the tribulation set in. See? Noah was in the ark before any tribulation set in. Lot was out of Sodom before any tribulation set in. See? And the Church will be gone before any tribulation period" (Taking Sides with Jesus, p. 755:55-56).
"Revelation 4 to 19 is Israel a nation." These chapters detail the (mainly historical) Seven Trumpet Judgments, Fifth and Sixth Seals, the tribulation, the ministry of Israel's two prophets, and the birth and martyrdom of 144,000 elect Israelites as a nation in one day. At the present time the modern Israel State is restored in the Land of the Covenant (Matthew 24:32-34; Mark 13:28-29; Luke 21:29-33), however the Israelites have not yet returned as Scripture states they will not return until the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Hosea 6:1-3; Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:14; 27:12-13; 49:17; 65:9-10; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:3, 8; 31:8; Ezekiel 28:24-31; 36:24; 37:14, 21-22; 39:27-28; Micah 5:3; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31).
"And [Revelation chapters] 19 to 22 is both [Israel and the Church] together, and the plagues and the warnings and so forth at the end." We shall commence our study of Revelation 19 by reading the first four verses:
"And after these things I heard as the voice of a great throng in the heaven shouting, Alleluia! The salvation, and the glory, and the power of our God: for true and just are His judgments: for He judged the great harlot, that corrupted the earth with her fornication, and He avenged the blood of His servants at her hand. And a second time they said, Alleluia. And her smoke will ascend forever and ever. And the twenty-four elders and four living beings fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen! Alleluia!"
"And after these things" refers to the visions of the parenthesis of chapters 17 and 18 and especially to the fall of Babylon. Brother Branham said, "After this tribulation, after the Woes, after the Seals, after the Plagues, after the casting out of Satan, after the setting up of the Millennium." And after reading Revelation 19:1-16 He said, "What was it? His people [Israel] had just crowned Him King of king and Lord of lord, [proleptically] coming back to His holy Temple anointed with the Presence of God to live and to reign through the millennium with His Church. Amen. The [Church] appearing with the mighty King to take Her place at His side, the new royal anointed Temple. . ."
"Now the sixfold purpose of Revelation 6:1 to Revelation 19:21 is fulfilled" by Israel's revelation of Christ's second or parousia Coming, their "reinstruction" as His millennium temple, their martyrdom and glorification, God's vengeance upon His enemies, Armageddon, His slaying false church congregations and casting the beast and the false prophet alive into the lake of Fire (The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Instructions to Daniel, p. 79:134-135). Returning with Christ and His Bride (ibid. 71:118, 126) their joy will anoint the Most Holy PlaceNew Jerusalem descending from God out of heaven.
The first occurrences of words in scripture generally help us in fixing their meaning or point us to some lesson in connection with it. The word "Hallelujah" first occurs in Psalm 104:35:
"Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth,
And let the wicked be no more.
Bless thou the Lord, O my soul,
If you read the Psalm you find the word's first occurrence in the New Testament in Revelation 19:1-3 is appropriate where "Alleluia" is the Greek spelling of the Hebrew "Hallelujah." In both Testaments the first occurrence of the word "Hallelujah" stands in connection with judgment. It is for this that praise is given to God. This does not accord with the teachings of the false charity and the traitorous toleration of the present day wherein apostate churchmen compromise the integrity of God's Holy Bible for social favour, treacherous politicians welcome inassimilable refugees, applaud multiculturalism, legitimize homosexuality, invade and squander national wealth on foreign nations, and atheistic educators promote situational ethics, holocaust® religion, Moon landing, evolution of species and climate change. Having the testimony of Jesus and imbued with the spirit of prophecy the saints are to praise God for the destruction of their mutual enemies.
The "Hallelujahs" in Revelation 19:1-4 are connected with the destruction of two Babylons in the near future. One is Los Angeles in Revelation 18:21-24, with Hollywood of the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews, whose sorceries of perverse entertainments and propaganda of lies and disinformation have seduced and corrupted the nations. 'The City of the Queen of the Angels' has deceived the great and elite whom she has made her merchants, 'stars' abettors and brokers in fornication. Whom do people idolize? Is it Jesus Messiah, or is it actors and actresses, musicians, singers and stars of stage and screen, or heroes of sport and business? These "great people will have their part in the lake of Fire, which is the second death" (Revelation 21:8).
Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300 400 mile section of earth's crust will sink beneath the Pacific at the close of the Gentile dispensation (Revelation 6:12; 16:18), followed by the antitype of "two wave loaves baked with leaven" in the resurrection of the sleeping Church Age saints and manifestation of the Sons of God in Christ's end-time Bride prior to their translation (Leviticus 23:16-21; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:49-58; I Thessalonians 4:16-17).
Brother Branham spoke Judgment on Los Angeles. One year after the revelation of the Seven Seals the Lord said, "Throw up a rock, and say to [your companion] Mr. Woods, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, you'll see the Glory of God".
The very next day, standing there, a whirlwind came down and blasted the mountains out. Rocks cut the top of the trees off, about three or four feet above my head; made three big blasts, and the brethren come running over. There was about fifteen man standing there, preachers and everything else. "What was it?" He said, "What was it?"
I said, "Judgment is striking the west coast." About two days after that, the earthquake almost sunk Alaska (What is the Attraction on the Mountain, p. 22:143-145).
Christ's resurrection on the third day after the earthquake described in Matthew 27:50-53 was the antitype of Leviticus 23:5-14, and the type for the first resurrection of the New Testament saints commencing three days after the earthquake that will sink Los Angeles of which the Alaskan earthquake spoken by Brother Branham was a token.
The other Babylon is the Judaeo-Roman Catholic Vatican City State in Revelation 17:1 18:20, 24, whose nuclear destruction will be arranged by the Khazar-hybridized "kings of the earth" or Black Nobility of English and European Royalty who will side with Judaeo-Communist Russia after the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week when the Vatican abrogates its agreement of Daniel 9:27 with the international Jews.
It is important to note that a period of time intervenes between the judgment of the above scriptures meted out upon the harlot church and the judgment on the beast and the false prophet who will be cast alive into the lake of Fire (Revelation 19:20) and on "the remnant of Judaeo-Roman Catholic and Protestant worshippers whom the Lord Jesus will slay with the sword of His Word: and leave unburied as a sacrifice to all the fowls" (Revelation 19:21). To illustrate this, Jesus foretold the destruction of Jerusalem, the sign of His second or 'parousia' Coming and "the end of the world" in Matthew 24:2-3two verses, but 1,937 years have intervened since Titus destroyed Jerusalem and still the end of the world order, ages or dispensations, has not eventuated. And as indicated by lamentations in Revelation 18:15-17 of the merchants and ship owners that profited from Vatican profligacy, neither will Armageddon occur overnight.
Revelation 19:1-4 is a blessed recollection by the resurrected Church and their 144,000 elect Israelite servants immediately before their return to earth for the millennium. They praise the Lord in remembrance of the end of the Gentile dispensation marked by the sinking of Los Angeles and the destruction of Vatican City State four years later; the first resurrection and translation of Christ's Bride of all Ages to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the sky, their martyrdom and glorification, and the battle of Armageddon. As the first law in God's moral government is that "judgment must begin at the house of God" and be executed on the harlot or faithless Church by the world power, the Black Nobility, International banksters of the City of London and Judaeo-Communism with which she had committed spiritual adultery, so it is a second law that the world power, after having served as God's instrument of punishment, is itself punished. Thus she is judged by the "scarlet coloured [first] beast on which she sat [or controlled (Revelation 17:3)], full of blasphemous names" [such as Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Baptist, Congregational, Methodist, Seventh Day Adventist, Jehovah's Witness, Assemblies of God, United Pentecostal, Charismatic, and others that fill the body of the beast. They call themselves God's church but represent themselves to the world in worldly activities like bingo, dances, drinking, homes for orphans and the aged, schools, universities, hospitals, etc. Even these good works are no business of God's Church which does not run charities, and one must be born into His Church by a clear revelation of the present Truthwhat Jesus is doing now. These are lodges that anyone can join. They don't believe in healing, in miracles, in the five-fold ministry or even baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Their women cut their hair, paint their faces, wear shorts and go mixed bathing, while their men drink, smoke and gamble. Rome is the mother of harlots who will return to her through the World Council of Churches]. "And the beast, has seven heads[that deified themselves: Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero and Galba] and ten horns [represented by the Black Nobility of the ten European kingdoms into which Imperial Rome divided, once again reunited as the revived Holy Roman Empire of the European Union and NATO]" and will be destroyed by the Lord Himself appearing to their sight.
In Revelation 13:1-10 the Lord Jesus portrays this scarlet coloured beast of Imperial Rome as a composite of all the evil attributes of the previous three Gentile world empires being transformed into Papal Rome following the bifurcation of empire into five Eastern and five Western nations represented by the iron legs of the image of Nebuchadnezzar's dream (Daniel 2). In this new incarnation Rome's mortal wound was healed. We live in the days of the feet of iron mixed with miry clay as Jewish author Uri Dowbenko wrote, "I think that from the very start John Paul II for whatever reasons has sought after one thing and one thing only. The formation of what now appears to be in his mind, a universal assemblage of Catholics at the core; grouped with them Protestant denominations, sects and churches; grouped around them believing Jews, believing Muslims, believing Hindus, believing Buddhists. And that would be a universal religious assembly that could have a powerful dynamic kick in civilization and in solving the problems of men and women today. That is the only thing you can really say this man has sought heart and soul and body with all his traveling. . ." (Uri Dowbenko, Bushwhacked: Inside Stories of True Conspiracy, ISBN 0971004218, p. 213). The "powerful dynamic kick" is an unintended but not inappropriate pun as the Judaeo-Roman church is uniting the physical and spiritual Serpent's seed in the feet of iron mixed with miry clay through the Jewish Rockefellers' World Council of Churches "to make war with the saints and to overcome them: and authority will be given to Rome's Devil-incarnate pope over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations . . . as it was in the days of Noah" (Revelation 13:7; Genesis 6:1-4; Matthew 24:37).
When the Israelites and self-styled Jews refused the Word of God to rule over them and accepted in His stead a murderer, Barabbas, they exalted Satan to headship over the nation and its religion. Satan deceived Semitic Israel, "the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth" (Revelation 12:3). In this our day he has deceived the remaining two thirds of the stars, the descendants of Ham and Japheththe nations, us Gentiles (Isaiah 14:12-14). Soon "the great dragon [will be] cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: cast out into the earth, and his angels will be cast out with him" (Revelation 12:7-12). And during the tribulation of Daniel's Seventieth Week "All that dwell upon the earth who are not elect will worship [Satan incarnate in] the pope" (Revelation 13:8) as Paul foretold, "opposing and exalting himself above all that is called God or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the Temple of God proclaiming himself to be God" (II Thessalonians 2:3-4). In Revelation 3:17-20 Jesus said the Assemblies of God would put Him out of the Church "and know it not" when they rejected the Revelation of Jesus Christ in 1963, and held to the Judaeo-Roman Trinity of Gods which is the mark of the beast.
Brother Branham revealed that the second beast of Revelation 13:11 is the United States of America, the image unto the beast of Imperial Rome. Revelation 13:11-18, "I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon." This was the United States rising in a relatively uninhabited continent as the Dragon, Rome, rose up out of the sea which symbolizes multitudes of people. This American buffalo had two horns like a lamb, indicating religious independence from the civil power in the absence of a state church. When her daughters return to Rome's bosom through the World Council of Churches the great harlot will rule and "America will speak like the Dragon and exercise the full authority of the first beast in its presence, forcing all that dwell on earth to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed [when Imperial Rome became Papal Rome]. Brother Branham said, "People who follow the Pillar of Fire will certainly have a rough time but they're ready for the translation at that time" (Hebrews, p. 137:104).
"And the United States does great wonders, making nuclear fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men [as at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and more recently with HAARP and drone warfare]; and deceives them that dwell on the earth by means of those miracles which he had power to do in the presence of the [first] beast; [Rome will activate a federation of the world's religions to restore peace and end World War III (that will ignite following the sinking of Los Angeles and the demolition of Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock by earthquakes thereafter Russia will invade and temporarily occupy the US mainland). Rome's federation of religions will be one of the "miracles." Since the days of Vatican II all religions have had representative offices in the Vatican. Once peace is restored and the pope is acclaimed inaugural president of one totalitarian world government, Russia's troops will withdraw from the United States, the US will] "say to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live." Do you see how the United States will be the image of the first beast? As Imperial Rome was wounded to death in the decline of her material power she united with religion and came back to life and power as the Holy Roman Empire, a universal religious empire whereby she has ruled the world from the inside where she would not appear to do so from the outside: the United States in the decline of its material power when united with universal religion under Rome will be able to "exercise the full authority of the first beast in its presence." Rome's agreement with the international Jews and her refinancing the US dollar with gold backing will make America the creditor and ruler of the world. Do see it?
"Then the United States will have power to give life to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that all that do not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he will cause all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand [signifying obedient service to the new universal religious empire], or in their foreheads [signifying acceptance of the trinitarian religion of the Roman beast and its (once) Protestant image]: and that no man might buy or sell, save he that has the mark, or the name of the beast [or Devil-incarnate pope], or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six".
The eighth king of Rome to deify himself will be the Devil-incarnate papal beast of Revelation 17:11 who will restore peace by the "miracle" of federating the world's religions, and be acclaimed president of one totalitarian world government and ultimately worshipped (Revelation 13:8). It appears inevitable that this man will be Pope Francis I, but the number of the name of this man is established from the name of his office, which is "Substitute for the Holy Spirit" or more commonly "Vicar of Christ," which in Roman Numerals is:
V + I + C + A + R + I + V + S F + I + L + I + I D + E + I 5 + 1 + 100 + 0 + 0 + 1 + 5 + 0 0 + 1 + 50 + 1 + 1 500 + 0 + 1 = 6 6 6
The earthquake that sinks Los Angeles will be accompanied by an earthquake cleaving the Mount of Olives and destroying the Dome of the Rock, moonquakes and an eclipse of the sun as earth moves on her axis, the eruption of the Pacific ring of fire and tidal waves sweeping the earth. The US dollar will fail, and with it the world economy. Brother Branham said global depression will be worse than the Great Depression and Daniel 8:23-25 prophesied concerning this time:
"At the end of Rome's rule, when the wicked go to extremes, a hard-faced king [pope] skilled in intrigues shall arise. His power will be mighty but not by force of arms: he will cause fearful destruction and succeed in whatever he undertakes, destroying multitudes [who refuse to receive the mark of the beast] and martyr the 144,000 elect Israelites (Daniel 7:21-27; Revelation 13:3-10). By his scheming deceit treachery will prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace [brokered with Jewry] he shall destroy many: he shall even rise up against Jesus Christ, the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand (Daniel 2:34-35, 44-45; Revelation 19:19-21).
The city of Laodicea in Asia Minor was so wealthy that although overthrown by earthquake in the reign of Nero (AD62), it quickly recovered and from its own resources soon assumed its pristine glory. Three roads met and converged at Laodicea as the Church Age of that name (fulfilled in 1963 as a move of the Spirit) formed the point where the satanic horses of the first three Seals met and joined religious power with political power and demonic power that will shortly culminate with Satan incarnate as the pale horse rider named Death. "And power was given to Death and Hell over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth" (Revelation 6:8).
Like ancient Laodicea the Gentile dispensation will be overthrown by earthquake and quickly recover from its own resources by peace and the deceitful cunning of Rome's last pope. This renewed season of prosperity for the earth-bound who cling to their mark of the beast will culminate in antichristian triumph in the three and a half days during which Israel's two witnesses "lie dead and unburied in the street of the great city, [Jerusalem], which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified" (Revelation 11:8). Then the antichristian world at the highest development of its material and spiritual power will be ripe for destruction at the Lord's mere appearance, without any actual physical encounter, as seen in the effect of Jesus' appearance in His humiliation (John 18:6): He will overcome them without hand by the Sword that goes forth out of His mouth.
In review, the nature of the four successive Gentile world powers of Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome prophesied by Daniel were typed by the diverse characteristics of four savage hybrid beasts. Imperial Rome declined and transformed into the religious empire of Papal Rome embracing all of the evil characteristics of the previous incarnations of Evil, and called in Revelation 13 "the first beast".
As I speak the United States of America is manifesting uninhibited violence and lawlessness as the image of Imperial Rome. Soon she will unite with the (once) Protestant churches and become the image of Papal Rome, "the second beast".
The other beast will be the eighth Emperor of Rome who deifies himself and is worshipped. He will be the last pope who will be incarnate by Satan and usurp the dedication of Israel's new temple, and force the mark of the beast upon Jewry (Isaiah 14:12-15; Daniel 9:27; II Thessalonians 2:3-4; Revelation 13:3-8; 17:11).
There also two Babylons the Lord will destroy; the Judaeo-Catholic Vatican City State, and Los Angeles.
Each of the major events and judgments in the Book of Revelation is celebrated in songs of praise:
Christ changing His office from Son of God and Mediator to Son of man, King of kings and Judge when He claims the Book of Redemption and opens its Seven Seals in Revelation 5:9.
The end of the Gentile dispensation and of the half-hour silence in heaven at the sounding of the Seventh Trumpet of judgment calling the first resurrection and announcing Israel's Feast of Trumpets in Revelation 11:15.
The 144,000 born-again elect Israelites being martyred for the faith of Jesus Christ acknowledging the justice of His judgments according to the Law (Exodus 21:23; Matthew 27:25) in Revelation 15:3.
Heaven rejoices in God's righteousness as the Third Vial is poured upon the spiritual adulterers that joined the new Judaeo-Roman church organized in the Pergamean Church Age under the First Seal in Revelation 16:5.
The heavenly multitude of Christ's Bride of all Ages and the 144,000 elect Israelites from the first resurrection praise the Lord with loud "Hallelujahs" rejoicing in God's victory over and final destruction of the two Babylons, Vatican City State, and Los Angeles as commanded in Revelation 18:20, in Revelation 19:1-6.
With the destruction of the beast of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and its image the (once) Protestant United States, religion is finished and the kingdom of this world order (cosmos) has become the kingdoms of our Lord and His Christ. nl786
