Fake WMD 'Intelligence' and Orwellian Double-speak: Washington is Insane
June 17, 2013 In the 21st century the two hundred year-old propaganda that the American people control their government has been completely shattered. . . Polls demonstrate that 65% of the US population opposes US intervention in Syria. Despite this clear indication of the people's will, the Obama regime is ramping up a propaganda case for more arming of Washington's mercenaries sent to overthrow the secular Syrian government and for a "no-fly zone" over Syria, which, if Libya is the example, means US or NATO aircraft attacking the Syrian army on the ground, thus serving as the air force of Washington's imported mercenaries, euphemistically called "the Syrian rebels."
Washington declared some time ago that the "red line" that would bring Syria under Washington's military attack was the Assad government's use of chemical weapons of mass destruction against Washington's mercenaries. . . Now Washington has fabricated the false intelligence, and President Obama has announced with a straight face, that Syria's Assad has used sarin gas on several occasions and that between 100 and 150 "of his own people," a euphemism for the US supplied foreign mercenaries, have been killed by the weapon of mass destruction.
Think about that for a minute. As unfortunate as is any death from war, is 100-150 deaths "mass destruction?" According to low-ball estimates, the US-sponsored foreign mercenary invasion of Syria has cost 93,000 lives, of which 150 deaths amounts to 0.0016%. If we round up, Washington's 150 deaths comes to two-thousands of one percent. In other words, 99.998% of the deaths did not cross the "red line." But the 0.002 (rounded up) percent did. . . Why would Assad use the proscribed weapons of mass destruction in order to kill a measly 100-150 mercenaries when his army is mopping up the US mercenaries without the use of gas and when Assad knows that the use of gas brings in the US military against him?
"The data about Assad's use of chemical weapons is fabricated by the same facility that made up the lies about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction. . . Russia and China, either one of which can destroy the United States, have learned that the US government is a liar and cannot be trusted. . . If Syria falls, Russia and China know that Iran is next. Iran is Russia's underbelly, and for China Iran is 20% of its energy imports. Both Russian and Chinese governments know that after Iran falls, they are next. There is no other explanation for Washington surrounding Russia with missile bases and surrounding China with naval and air bases.
Both Russia and China are now preparing for the war that they see as inevitable. Washington's crazed, demented drive for world hegemony is bringing unsuspecting Americans up against two countries with hydrogen bombs whose combined population is five times the US population. . .

27 Snowden Quotes about NSA's Spying that should frighten You
June 11, 2013 Thanks to Edward Snowden, we now know that the US government has been spying on us to a degree that most people would have never even dared to imagine. Up until now, the general public has known very little about the US government spy grid that knows almost everything about us. But making this information public is going to cost Edward Snowden everything. Essentially, his previous life is now totally over.
The following are 27 quotes from Edward Snowden about US government spying that should send a chill up your spine:
#1 "The majority of people in developed countries spend at least some time interacting with the Internet, and Governments are abusing that necessity in secret to extend their powers beyond what is necessary and appropriate."
#2 ". . .I believe that at this point in history, the greatest danger to our freedom and way of life comes from the reasonable fear of omniscient State powers kept in check by nothing more than policy documents."
#3 "The government has granted itself power it is not entitled to. There is no public oversight. The result is people like myself have the latitude to go further than they are allowed to."
#4 ". . . I can't in good conscience allow the US government to destroy privacy, internet freedom and basic liberties for people around the world with this massive surveillance machine they're secretly building."
#5 "The NSA has built an infrastructure that allows it to intercept almost everything."
#6 "With this capability, the vast majority of human communications are automatically ingested without targeting. If I wanted to see your e-mails or your wife's phone, all I have to do is use intercepts. I can get your e-mails, passwords, phone records, credit cards."
#7 "Any analyst at any time can target anyone. Any selector, anywhere . . . I, sitting at my desk, certainly had the authorities to wiretap anyone, from you or your accountant, to a federal judge, to even the President . . ."
Russia has signaled its openness to giving sanctuary to Edward Snowden with President Vladimir Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, telling the daily Kommersant if the 29-year-old were to apply, Russia would consider granting him asylum. . .

Comment: If your phone company is AT&T, BT Group, Sprint, T-Mobile, Vodafone, Bell Canada, Telus, Rogers Communications, Telekom Austria, Cellcom, Comcast, DirecTV, Elisa Oyj, TeliaSonera or O2-Ireland, then Israel has access to much of your communications and bills, including credit cards numbers.
The social network leading company is still Facebook. There is enough evidence to conclude that this company has deep connections with the Israeli intelligence, in essence being nothing but an upgraded version of Mossad's Ksharim program, described in the past by Victor Ostrovsky.
The upgrade was achieved by stealing code from Harvard students Cameron Winklevoss, Tyler Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra; Mr. Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, made them believe that he would help them build a social network called HarvardConnection.com (later called ConnectU). Mark Zuckerberg acknowledged the theft by paying indemnifications. Applications like Facebook are critical for intelligence services because they map the connections (that's the meaning of "ksharim") of an individual, facilitating its surveillance, entrapment, and attack. alor.org wired.com smh.com.au
Here is a brave man like Bradley Manning and Julian Assange. As Brother Branham said, "the world is falling apart." The once Protestant United States is certainly the image unto the beast with immense power in the presence of the Judaeo-Catholic beast, and the unbridled wickedness that we see presently will be magnified many fold when church and state unite.
Snowden's disclosure certainly exposed how Obama lied to the Chinese Premier last week when he complained about Chinese hacking of US government and industry when in fact the hackers are the US and Israel. He has also lied about Syria deploying poison gas against the US, NATO, Saudi, Qatari, etc., armed and funded invaders who are using poison gas.
The Israeli Criminals behind the NSA Spy Scandal
June 13, 2013 At the center of the NSA scandal is a gang of Israeli high-tech criminals which is connected to the false-flag terror attacks of 9/11. These connections underline the involvement of the same Israeli criminals to both 9/11 and the NSA's secret program to collect and store our personal information and conversations, which came about mainly as a consequence of 9/11. Two Israeli companies, Narus and Verint, are involved in the National Security Agency (NSA) spy scandal in which copies of our phone calls and email data are sent to secret rooms at NSA buildings across the country. These Israeli companies are closely connected to Unit 8200, the electronic espionage unit of the Israeli military. (Narus was acquired by Boeing in 2010).
. . . closely connected to Odigo, the Israeli messaging system that was used to warn Israelis to stay away from the World Trade Center on 9/11. . . the NSA has used Israeli encryption software from RSA Security, Inc. since 2006, which means that Israelis hold the encryption keys to the entire NSA computer network. The Israelis obviously have easy access to everything at the NSA. . . access to personal phone calls and emails allows Israeli intelligence to blackmail and control people, like General David Petraeus, who was forced to resign from his position as director of the CIA after an extra-marital affair was revealed by unknown agents who had access to his personal email. . .
James Bamford wrote an article entitled "Shady Companies With Ties to Israel Wiretap the US for the NSA" for Wired.com in April 2012 in which he discussed the Israeli companies and the criminals who ran them. . . [Veteran Israeli intelligence officer, founder and former chairman of Verint wanted by the FBI, Jacob "Kobi"] Alexander is obviously connected with Israel's military intelligence apparatus and George Soros through the mutually owned investment fund ComSor, what is not widely reported is his company's close links with Odigo, the Israeli-run instant messaging company that receivedand conveyedurgent warning messages about the imminent terror attacks on the World Trade Center, several hours before the first plane hit. . . Shortly after 9/11, five executives from Comverse were reported to have profited by more than $267 million from "insider trading". . .

Comment: Susan Rice is the 18th CFR NSA director, John Kerry is the 22nd CFR Secretary of State, there have been 18 CFR CIA directors. The CFR run NSA is listening to our phone calls and monitoring our use of the internet. The CFR run NSA can target and kill American citizens without due process or a trial. Do you think the NSA is doing this in the best interest of the American people or are they doing it to further CFR goals and profit?
Imminent: Israel's Capitulation to the Vatican
June 13, 2013 A long-awaited agreement between the Vatican and Israel appears to be near finality. The two main points revolve around the Church's requests to build two centers in Israel: a church in a section of the Caesaria National Park where a site dedicated to Paul once stood, and the use of a plot on Mount Zion in Jerusalem.
The structure on Mt. Zion, the highest point of Jerusalem, is known as the Cenacle, where the Last Supper is believed to have taken place, and according to the deal which will be signed in the coming months; it will become open to Catholic worship once again. The Vatican asks Israel to allow the Church to build a passageway through the Diaspora Yeshiva, which takes care of the area known as David's Tomb, and to enable thousands of Christian worshipers to access the Last Supper Room more easily. The area has strategic value, since it is a few hundred yards from the Temple Mount, so the Catholic Church will turn it into the international center for Catholics all around the world.
As the New Sanhedrin stated in 2009, those in the Vatican who initiated the concept of the "Holy Basin," which is pivotal in this agreement, intended to remove exclusive Jewish sovereignty from the Temple Mount and the Old City andin effectaimed at "the total removal of Jewish sovereignty". . .

Malaria Vaccine Success? Not if You Look at Adverse Effects!
June 15, 2013 Before accepting claims of a vaccine's efficacy, it's wise to look at the study and who financed it. A new study for a malaria vaccine is a case in point. It was financed by the manufacturer and the lead researcher is a co-patent holder! It should come as no surpise that there are gaping flaws in the study, as discussed here.
A new study claims a never-before seen efficacy rate of 72% for a new malaria vaccine. The researchers have drawn the attention of the Bill Gates [eugenicist] Foundation, which may give them $100 million in funding to try to bring it to market. But have they really achieved such a result? At first glance, it seems likely that this study is valid. They did something rather unusual in today's vaccine-hyped world: They used a real placebo, a saline solution, in their control group. That, though, is not the only thing that must be assured. Before discussing problems with this study, let's first look at how it was done along with its results. . . Full story: gaia-health.com

Glyphosate (Roundup) Carcinogenic in the PARTS PER TRILLION Range
June 13, 2013 An alarming new study accepted for publication in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology last month, indicates that glyphosate, the world's most widely used herbicide due to its widespread use in genetically engineered agriculture, is capable of driving estrogen receptor mediated breast cancer cell proliferation within the infinitesimal parts per trillion concentration range.
This finding is relevant to virtually anyone who consumes genetically modified food today. GM crops, which are designed to survive glyphosate poisoning by being genetically engineered with "glyphosate-resistance" (i.e. RoundUp Ready), are universally contaminated with glyphosate and its toxic metabolite AMPA. Furthermore, glyphosate pollution and exposure is now omnipresent, with one 2011 study finding glyphosate in 60-100% of all US air and rain samples tested, and another 2012 study finding that glyphosate widely contaminates groundwater, which is the water located beneath the ground surface, that supplies aquifers, wells and springs. . .

The Case for No GMO Patents
June 14, 2013 On June 13, 2013, the SCOTUS light bulbs suddenly went on, and on a unanimous vote (9-0), the court rejected a patent application for two cancer genes isolated by Myriad Genetics, Inc. In the court's opinion written by Justice Clarence Thomas, Title 35 was repeatedly invoked as ". . . we hold that a naturally occurring DNA segment is a product of nature and not patent eligible merely because it has been isolated. . ." This is, finally, the right decision.
GMOs are just the reverse of this case, i.e., DNA is combined instead of being isolated, thus logically also not patentable just because two or more DNA segments have been mixed together.
The doors are now open to reverse all previous 30 years of wrongdoings and false GMO patents and end the absurdity that everything in life, the food that we eat, plants, microbes, viruses, fish and animals can ultimately be patented and owned by someone else. GMO patent insanity has already led to crimes against humanity, and crimes against the planet.
The horrifying Frankensteinian effects of GMO foods on animals and plants are now being discovered by Serallini, Carman and other studies. The case is not over; it just started. So let's get busy. Maybe this is a good time to be an attorney. Life, nature, all living things, the human body, whole or in parts are not patentable, ever. Never were, never will be. May this be a lesson to all who foolishly thought they could steal from the patrimony of life. Full story: truth-out.org
The Drone Ranger: Obama's Dirty Wars
June 13, 2013 Every Tuesday, President Obama personally checks off the names of people he wants killed. George Bush, a bit more squeamish than Obama, never did that; but Mr. Obama felt those decisions were the president's responsibility: he "want[s] to keep his own finger on the trigger," according to one report. A tidy, scheduled man, the President only picks his victims once a week; now called "Terror Tuesday" . . . drones are just one toy in our Presidents' murderous toy-chest. And the kill list is far larger than even a smart dude like Obama can tick off on a Tuesday. [Reporter Jeremy] Scahill calculates that the targeted kills in Afghanistan and Pakistan now total more than 17,000!
Drones can't kill them all. In 2009, a US cruise missile hit al Majala, a remote village of Bedouins in Yemen, killing a dozen herdsmen and three babies. Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh took responsibility, proudly, for killing supposed "terrorists." However, a courageous Yemeni reporter, Abdulelah Haider Shaye, visited the site, photographed the remains of the US missileand was promptly jailed. The US is particularly shy about taking credit for the cruise missile kills, as it boosted al-Qaeda's recruitment drive in Yemen. . .
"WikiLeaks was absolutely indispensible," [film maker-Cameraman Richard] Rowley told mea treasure trove of State Department confessions confirming what they found on the ground. It was through WikiLeaks that they discovered that President Saleh joked with US operatives about lying to his Congress about the US missile attack on al Majala. . .
Obama's secret war has now spread to 75 nations. It's all under the command of General William H. McRaven . . . lauded as the man who planned the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound. But there's not one single US network or paper that would report on Scahill's discovery that McRaven was also the guy who planned the night raid on the Afghan wedding party that killed the bride, the groom and the groom's mother . . .
McRaven's semi-private army, the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), is warring in our name in 75 nationsnations he won't name and Obama will arrest you for naming. Not even Orwell could have dreamed up that one. . . A rabbi from Nazareth once said, "The truth shall set you free." And that's exactly what Obama is afraid of . . .

The World is going Insane
As in the EU and USA the best politicians money can buy are pushing the Rothschilds/City of London "Cloward and Piven" strategy designed to sabotage and destroy the welfare state by overloading the bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thereby pushing society into crisis and economic collapse which will ignite political and financial crises within and between nations as planned in 1871 "to provoke the greatest social cataclysm the world has ever known"after World War III (which is designed to destroy the power of political Zionism and political Islam) by those who aspire to undisputed world domination, then destroy the power of Judaeo-Roman Catholicism and Judaeo-Communism.
In Australia the incumbent Federal government is pushing an egregious Education program on borrowed billions designed by a former chairman of Rothschild Australia and their Investec Bank who was simultaneously chairman of corporate policeman the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC)!
Banksters loan out money created in milliseconds out of nothing more substantial than the debt incurred by establishing the loan; in this case by the Commonwealth of Australia or perhaps the 'Australian Government' a foreign company incorporated in the USA and unknown to citizens.

Rainbow POTUS is End-time Sign of 'the Days of Lot'
Recalling the series of spiritual dreams in 1937 in which he saw the earthquake sink Los Angeles Joe Brandt said, "It certainly was not 1937. I saw a newspaper on the corner with a picture of the President. It surely wasn't Mr. Roosevelt. He was bigger, heavier, big ears. If it wasn't 1937, I wondered what year it was. . ."
In Indonesia, Barry Soetoro was the only Black boy in his class. He was outcast and bullied by his Indonesian classmates as "the boy with big ears." Also in Hawaii young Barry Obama was bullied by his Asian classmates. "With big ears and the name I have I wasn't immune". Full story: tomatobubble.com tomatobubble.com
In Newsletters 625 and 662 we reported: One evening, during a trip to Moscow early in 1992, as the evening wore on, the wife of my host said, "What if I told you that you will have a black president very soon and he will be a Communist? . . . This is not some idle talk. He is already born and he is educated and being groomed to be president right now. You will be impressed to know that he has gone to the best schools of Presidents. He is what you call "Ivy League." You don't believe me, but he is real and I even know his name. His name is Barack. His mother is white and American and his father is black from Africa. That's right, a chocolate baby! And he's going to be your President."
"It's all been thought out. His father is not an American black so he won't have that social slave stigma. He is intelligent and he is half white and has been raised from the cradle to be an atheist and a Communist. He's gone to the finest schools. He is being guided every step of the way and he will be irresistible to America." She rattled off a complete litany. He was from Hawaii. He went to school in California. He lived in Chicago. He was soon to be elected to the legislature. "Have no doubt: he is one of us, a Soviet." America would have to be converted to Communism and Barack was going to pave the way. Full story: rense.com
As a student at Columbia University, Obama was recruited over 25 years ago by Zbigniew Brzezinski to be groomed as the president to succeed George W. Bush in 2008. Neil Sankey, a former British policeman who's now a licensed private investigator in Los Angeles, initiated a preliminary background investigation of Barack Obama and uncovered 49 addresses and 16 different Social Security numbers.
Comment: According to the unfolding scenario it seems likely Joe Brandt's spiritual dreams were prophetic of the Obama 'rainbow' presidency bringing the world to the fiery climax of Sodom and Gomorrah prophesied in II Peter 3:1-7 and Luke 17:28-30. In addition is the unprecedented sign of Revelation 19:20 and 20:10, concurrent popes who will be "cast alive into the lake of Fire burning with brimstone" before the consummation of life (Daniel 9:27; Matthew 3:12) after which the saints shall "tread down the [atomic] ashes of the wicked" when they return for the millennium (Malachi 4:1-3).
Revelation 19 Part IV
Brother Branham is the angel of Revelation 1:1; 3:14 and 10:7, one of the seven angels "which had the seven Vials full of the seven last plagues" (Revelation 15:1, 8; 16:17; 17:1 and 21:9), the angel whom members of Christ's Bride sought to worship as represented by John in Revelation 19:9-10 and 22:6-11 and recounted in "Bruised Serpent." Indeed he was the seventh angel of Revelation 10 the sole person to whom Jesus revealed the Seven Seals which are the mysteries of the Seven Thunders that "finish the mystery of God" and literally turn the hearts of the children to the faith once delivered to their apostolic fathers. Caught up in a series of visions between AD95 and 96 into the yet future Day of the Lord John saw and heard William Branham delivering the revelation of the Seven Seals between March 17 24, 1963, so the beloved disciple represents you, my precious Brother or Sister, greatly beloved of the last Adam, Jesus Christ, who died on Calvary to redeem His wife as the first Adam surrendered his life to redeem his wife.
Gabriel "the Angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense" introduced Christ's first Coming to Israel (Luke 1:19-25, 26-38), and He will introduce His second Coming to Israel through the two prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 (Daniel 8:16-27; 9:21-27). In 1933 the Pillar of Fire manifested over Brother Branham in the form of a star as he was baptizing the seventeenth penitent in the Ohio River and a Voice from heaven said, "As John the Baptist foreran My first Coming, your Message will introduce My second Coming." And Brother Branham said, "The Elijah of this day is the Lord Jesus Christ. He is to come according to Luke 17:30. The Son of man is to reveal Himself among His people: not a man, God. But it'll come through a prophet. And He never had two major prophets at the same time, never in the world" (Trying to do God a Service without it being His Will, p. 33:212). Only the fullness of the Spirit can reveal the fullness of the Word, and the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form.
The Man Gabriel was a manifestation of God Himself just as Jehovah of the Old Testament manifest in the Man Jesus of the New, and the Elijah of this day was the fullness of the Spirit Jesus Christ veiled behind the prophet William Branham.
Luke 17:30, "as it was in the days of Lot, so will it be when the Son of man is revealed." The world is in a Sodom state, two messengers, Billy Graham and Oral Roberts have preached to the churches in Sodom which now welcome homosexuals into their congregations, perform same sex marriages and ordain women ministers. As God veiled Himself behind the created Man in Genesis 18 and discerned the thoughts and intents of Abraham and Sarah's hearts proving He is the Word (Hebrews 4:12), He identified Himself by the same sign veiled in the virgin-born Jesus, and in this our day behind William Branham (1909-1965), a sinner saved by grace, He has discerned the thoughts and intents of the heart, raised the dead, cast out demons, restored sight to the blind, speech and hearing to deaf mutes, and made cripples whole, revealing "Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, and today, and forever" (Hebrews 13:8).
In Genesis 16:7-14 we have the account of Sarai's maid Hagar encountering "the Angel of the Lord" who is actually the Lord Himself manifested as an Angel or Messenger. In Genesis 22:11-19 "the Angel of the Lord" swore an oath by Himselfthe only instance of Him so doing in intercourse with the patriarchsand His oath is the promise that Abraham's blessing will cross to the younger Church comprising an election from all of the families in Adam's race, as indicated when the Lord crossed Israel's hands in blessing Ephraim and Manasseh, placing us as Sons and daughters, Spiritual Israel, joint heirs with Messiah in the inheritance natural Israel rejected (Genesis 48:13-20). This is the blessing of obedience to faith.
By faith in God's spoken Word Abraham left his country, family and friends and set off for a strange land. This is God's expectation of new-born Christians. Jesus said, "If any one comes to Me, and hates not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me, cannot be My disciple" (Luke 14:26-27). Everyone who fully embraced the Message for their hour has either separated himself from the associations of his worldly past or been forsaken by them because the commonality is no longer extant. We must enter the Lord's perfect will before we can experience the oneness of a Spiritual marriage union. Abram set off in God's permissive will with his pagan father and non-elect nephew who had no part in God's commission; because he added to the words of the prophecy God added the plagues to his life (Revelation 22:18). Choose your partner in life and your associates from God's elect. He could not bless Abram with the promised son, Isaac, until he separated from his father, who died, and from Lot and his family who type the foolish virgin that will enter the tribulation. When he entered His perfect will God renewed Abraham and Sarah's bodies so that they could meet their promised son, and we must enter His perfect will before we can change in the atoms to meet the Promised Son in the air.
Too many in the circle of this Message want to have one foot in the Word and one foot in the world, pleasing worldly associates who try their mortal spirit and grieve the Spirit of the Lord. We must not live as menpleasers; but "as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God in singleness of heart, fearing God" (Ephesians 6:6; Colossians 3:22).
James, our Lord's brother in the flesh and in the Spirit called such double-minded carnality spiritual adultery, covetousness or idolatry, claiming Christ the Word is our Husband yet flirting with Satan the nature of the world. James 4:4, 7-10: "You adulterers and adulteresses, don't you know that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. [Why do you seek popularity, approval and acceptance of unbelievers]? Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up".
In Exodus 3:2-4 "the Angel of the Lord" who called to Moses out of the midst of the Shekinah in the bush" was the Lord God Himself. Likewise the corporeal manifestation of this Gabriel in Judges 6:11-24 and Zechariah 3 appeared to Joseph in a dream (Matthew 1:18-25; 2:13, 19), to Zacharias physically (Luke 1:11-25), then manifest as prophesied in Isaiah 7:14 in the God-Man "Emmanuel," who is also called the Angel of the Presence (Exodus 33:14; Isaiah 63:9) and in Malachi 3:1, the Angel of the Covenant.
Daniel's prophecies encompass the whole of the "times of the Gentiles," from Nebuchadnezzar's subjugation of Judah to the consummation of life throughout which Jerusalem and Israel will be ruled by unrelated non-Semitic people at enmity to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Genesis 27:39-41; Ezekiel 38-39; Daniel 9:26-27; Revelation 11:1 15:3). Thus under the Old Covenant the Angel of the Lord is named Gabriel, meaning 'Man of God,' who displays empathy toward Israel in times of distress and comfort with the calm assurance of glad tidings according to His Word. Thus it is Gabriel who converses with Daniel, a type of the 144,000 elect Israelites:
Daniel 9:23, "At the beginning of your supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to show you; for you are greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision." And the Lord enunciated the mysterious Seventy Weeks of prophetic years of His dealings in grace before Israel's kingdom, nation and Jerusalem are redeemed.
Daniel 10:11, "O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the Words that I speak to you, and stand upright: for to you am I now sent. And when He had spoken this Word to me, I stood trembling." And the Lord foretold the defeat of Persia and Egypt by Alexander the Great.
Daniel 10:19, "And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto you, be strong, yes, be strong. And when He had spoken to me, I was strengthened, and said, Let My Lord speak; for You have strengthened me." And the Lord outlined the invasion and tyranny of Imperial and Papal Rome typed by Antiochus IV Epiphanes of Syria.
However under the New Covenant, that is, when the Angel of the Lord spoke with Daniel after the Day of Pentecost He is named Michael which means 'Who is like God' (Daniel 10:13, 21; 12:1; Jude 1:9; Revelation 12:7). "At that time [in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week after the Israel nation is born in one day having "made reconciliation for iniquity" in their own blood (Isaiah 66:8; Daniel 12:1; Revelation 19:6-21; Daniel 9:24; Matthew 27:25)] Michael, the Great Prince will stand up and commence His reign over Israel." And He will smite His enemies and the enemies of Israel.
You are encouraged to review Newsletter 682 in which we spoke of "Gabriel, Michael, and Christ" who are one and the same God in different offices or dispensation claims just like Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, or Son of man, Son of God, and Son of David.
Many prophecies of the Book of Daniel were "sealed up to the time of the end" (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4) which commenced on March 8, 1963 when Christ loosed the Seals and descended with the little Book open (Revelation 5:5-8; 10:1-4). In Revelation 1:1 and 10:7 we find Jesus Messiah revealed these mysteries to William Branham alone; he was "one of them that stood by [of whom Daniel] asked the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things" (Daniel 7:9-10, 13-16; Revelation 1:5). Since Jesus Christ did not loose the Seal and reveal these mysteries to His prophet until 1963, this "one standing" in the vision could only have been William Branham who instructed John in his Patmos visions and Ezekiel, Daniel and Zechariah in many of their visions which are common to the Book of Revelation.
Brother Branham described the appearance of the Angel of the Lordó"the One who told me all these things" as "a large man of about six foot tall, but of an olive looking complexion, weighing some two hundred pounds, with dark hair to His shoulder" whom he called the Lord, and the Angel of the Lord. Speaking of the Angel of the Lord he said "He always stands by my right"; the right side of the pulpit where he offered prayer for the sick as Gabriel "the Angel of the Lord was standing on the right side of the altar of incense" when the priest Zechariah was offering prayer for Israel (Luke 1:8-11). When Brother Branham was on campaign He would often commence his service after this fashion:
Dear Christian friends, before we start the prayer-line, I want everyone to understand clearly that I do not claim to be a divine healer. The only thing I can do for you is pray for you. No man can heal. God alone is the healer.
I am just a man, your brother, with a ministry vindicated by a supernatural Being, the Angel of the Lord that has come from God to minister these blessings to you. Does the electrical wire going to that light say, "Look what a great wire I am?" No, the wire has nothing to do with making the light. It's the current in the wire that makes the light. I am like that electrical wire. I have no light of my own until it is turned on from somewhere else. Do you see that I give praise to Jesus Christ? It's not of myself; it's from Him.
Some people think angels aren't in the New Testament and that only the Holy Ghost led the early church. It is true that the Holy Ghost led the church, but angels are always ministering spirits in every age. Remember in Acts chapter 8, the angel of the Lord appeared to Philip and told him to go to the Gaza desert and witness to that eunuch from Ethiopia. And when Peter was in prison, the angel of the Lord shined like a light over him, touched him, broke loose his shackles, and led him out (Acts 12). And don't forget St. Paul. After fourteen days and nights on the ocean that storm, all hope gone of being saved, Paul said, "Sirs, be good cheer; for the angel of God, whose servant I am, stood by me last night and told me there would be no loss of life; wherefore believe God, that it will be just as it was shown to me" (Acts 27). John the Revelator wrote in the last chapter of the Bible, "I, Jesus, have sent mine Angel to testify unto you these things in the churches" (Revelation 22:16). See, the Book of Revelation was shown John by the angel of the Lord. And John fell down to worship that angel and the angel [who was in fact the prophet Brother Branham] stopped him saying, "See thou do it not, for I am thy fellow servant and of thy brethren the prophets" (Revelation 19:10). The prophetic Spirit that has been on the prophets down through the ages was there prophesying through John, showing him the future by an angel. That same Spirit is here in this building tonight. "He's the same yesterday, today, and forever." Don't try to figure it out; just accept it" (Life of William Branham, by Owen Jorgensen, II, p. 7).
Now let us turn to the business of Revelation 19:11-16:
"And I . . . (insert your name here) . . . saw the heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wars. His eyes a flame of fire, and on His head many diadems, having a Name written, that no one knew but Himself, clothed in a vesture dipped in blood: and His Name has come to be called The Word of God. And the armies in the heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and pure. And out of His mouth goes forth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall shepherdise them with an iron rod and He treads the winepress of the wine of the anger of God the All-ruler. And He has on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS".
In this vision of the prospective future, Christ is called "Faithful and True" and therefore entirely righteous in the judgment He has executed upon the Israel nation and non-elect church in the Trumpet and Vial judgments; upon the two Babylons of Los Angeles and the harlot church, and in the battle of Armageddon He is about to wage before the millennium sets in. As in Revelation 1:13-16 He is no longer Mediator in the office of Son of God for the golden girdle is about His breast as Son of Man and Judge (Josephus, Antiquities III, 7, 2; John 5:27). His eyes are a flame of fire that penetrate and search out every person. No one can escape his vision and judgment, He knows the thoughts and intents of the heart; the day of mercy is over. Men can hide behind every conceivable mask, but only those who stand in His righteousness will escape the eyes of the Judge who will recompense those who rejected Him (Revelation 1:14; 2:18; 19:12).
As King of kings and the Judge of Revelation 1:13-16 His crowns are not (Gk.) stefanos, the victor's crown promised to believers for bearing fruit in Christian life by overcoming the world, the flesh, and Satan (I Corinthians 9:25; II Timothy 4:8; Revelation 2:10; 3:11; 4:10), but (Gk.) diadema, the crown of absolute sovereignty worn by kings; and they are "many" indicating Christ's universal sovereignty as King of kings in contrast to the ten diadems of the beast (Revelation 13:1).
[It is interesting to note that Jews boast of three crowns: the Law, the priesthood, and the kingly crown (A.R. Fausset, The Critical and Expository Bible Encyclopaedia, p. 145). Josephus speaks of a triple crown worn by the high-priest; this may have been introduced by the Asmoneans when they united the temporal monarchy with the priesthood. Perhaps this is the origin of the papal triple crown of the Judaeo-Roman church organized by "the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan" (Revelation 2:9). According to the 1987 Catholic Encyclopedia it is fashioned after the Persian [Babylonian?] royal headpiece" (ISBN 0-8407-5544-9, p. 579). Its three diadems signify dominion as "Father of princes and kings, guide of the world, vicar of our Savior Jesus Christ." According to the Vatican website this interpretation of the triple crown is the official liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church (Pontificale Romanum Clementis VIII, Editio Princeps, 1595-1596). It is supposed to have been first worn only with a single coronet, by Pope Sylvester in the time of the emperor Constantine. Innocent III, about the year 1200, writes, that the church gave to himself a crown for the temporal dominion and a mitre for the priesthood. It is generally thought that Boniface VIII, about the year 1300, was the first who added a second coronet to show the spiritual supremacy and the temporal power united: and about twenty years afterwards John XXII, or according to others Urban V, more than sixty years later, placed the third coronet upon it, thus making a tiara to exhibit the pontifical, the imperial, and the royal authority combined. To the wearer and to the beholder instructive lessons are taught, the one and the other are admonished that the head upon which it is borne is supposed to be endowed with proper science, as it certainly possesses power of government, and spiritual jurisdiction; and the variety of its knowledge should emulate the beauty of that decoration which is externally shown (Explanation of the Construction, Furniture and Ornaments of a Church, of the Vestments of the Clergy, and of the Nature and Ceremonies of the Mass. By The Rt. Rev. John England, (1834), p. 116-117). King of heaven and of earth and of the lower regions (biblelight.net)].
His feet of brass will execute divine judgment on the false church and on the world (Malachi 4:1-3; Matthew 3:11-12; Revelation 1:15; 10:4; 19:11-21). When He had opened the Seventh Seal Brother Branham said, "Jesus comes from heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His saints, and the Bible said that the heavens was empty for the space of a half hour" (Sardis Church Age, p. 348:96; I Thessalonians 4:14-16; Jude 14-15; Revelation 8:1). In Revelation 10 the Angel of the Covenant united with His wife drawn out from the seven Church Ages of PART-Word descended in man's day with the unsealed Book of Redemption in His hand and placed judgment on Papal Rome, the beast from the sea; and on the beast from the earththe United States in union with the (once) Protestant churches (Revelation 10:1-6). Revelation 19 portrays Him Coming in the Lord's Day after the tribulation when the Devil-incarnate pope has made Jerusalem desolate (Ezekiel 43:2; Matthew 24:30; Revelation 11:18-19; Daniel 9:27). As Daniel saw this vision five hundred years before John, the man who expounded these things to him had to be William Branham (Daniel 7:9-13; John 5:22-27).
When the overconfidence of the world power and the distress of the elect Israelites have reached their highest point, the Lord Jesus shall appear visibly from heaven with His mighty armies to destroy them who have been destroying the earth, to put an end to the course of the world, and establish His kingdom of glory. "With the enemy repulsed, Jesus then comes and presents Himself to the 144,000 . . . this is the revelation story of Zechariah 12:9-14 [and Revelation 1:7] . . . Both come right after the tribulation" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 36:4 41:6). This will be when the elect Israelites recognize Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming three and a half years previously. He comes to judge the world power with vengeance; cataclysmic natural phenomena will accompany His advent. The ass's colt on which He rode meek and lowly to Jerusalem (Matthew 21:1-7) foreshadowed the horse He will ride to war with the beast. He rode the ass in peace as an earnest of His universal earthly reign from Jerusalem as the King of peace after all hostile powers have been overthrown.
"On His vesture and on His thigh He had a Name written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS that no man knew but he himself . . . and His Name is called The Word of God." (Revelation 19:12, 13, 16). The Logos or "Word of God" who made the world (Colossians 1:15-20) and now dwells in glorified flesh will make it anew. This is a beautiful designation of the personality of Christ in accordance with His Divine-human essential Name, Jehovah-Saviour. This mystery is sealed only from those with a worldly understanding outside the invisible marriage union of divine love. The same may be said of the existence of the true Church, invisible and unknown being overshadowed by the Great Whore and her harlot daughters. The revelation of the Seven Vials will solve this conundrum for the 144,000 elect Israelites. In this, as in all other respects, the disciple is made like his Lord who's own "new name" is to be theirs, and to be "in their foreheads" (Revelation 22:4) as it is a revelation whence we may infer that His "new name" as "priest of the most high God" is written on His forehead and no man knows what it is but he who has the revelation.
Hebrews 7:1-2, "For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace."
This is the promise of Revelation 19:12, 13, 16 and 3:12, "I will make the conquering victor a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will nevermore leave it: and I will inscribe on him the Name of My God and the Name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem that is coming down from My God out of heaven, and My own new Name." Brother Branham said "He received a new Name. That's the reason they [Pentecostals and the priests of Baal] holler the way they do and don't get nothingit will be revealed in the Thunders" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 158:3-159:6). As Brother Branham explains, God and His Word is the selfsame Person. And Jesus is the Word of God which is Melchisedec manifest in flesh.
"And the Name is in the Word because He is the Word. Amen. What is He then? The Word interpreted is the manifestation of the Name of God. . . "Flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father which is in heaven has revealed this to you [Who I am]. And upon this rock I'll build My place of worship, and the gates of hell can't shake it down." Amen (Matthew 16:17-18; William Branham, God's only Provided Place of Worship, p. 33:214). John saw it as "written," but like Christ's second or parousia Coming, that Name in all its glorious significance will be realized too late after "the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gather together to make war against Him that sat on the horse, and against His army" and He and saints with Him in joint triumph reign at the final consummation.
A great uniting time has come upon the world as Lucifer's totalitarian one world government nears. Different elite groups are negotiating for coalition and a stake in the carve-up of power and spoils from enslaving the entire world. Each group is a different manifestation of Satan on earth and their dominating influence is the seed of the Serpent in the power of their Judaeo-Roman Catholic church organized at the First Nicaea Council by "the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan." Revelation 18:24, "And in her was found the blood of prophets, and saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth." The false religion of the (so-called) Jews has a prior claim to this condemnation of Jesus Messiah. Matthew 23:35, "That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom you slew between the temple and the altar." So the Judaeo-Roman church has a spiritual pedigree going back to the days of Cain who slew his half-brother, Abel.
According to the plan prepared by Albert Pike, then leader of the World Revolutionary Movement funded by the Illuminati's British, French, German and American International Banksters, AFTER the 'hot stage' of the now ongoing World War III is ended, those who aspire to undisputed world domination will provoke the greatest social cataclysm the world has known. We quote Albert Pike's own written words taken from the letter catalogued in the British Museum Library, London, England:
"We shall unleash the Nihilists and Atheists, and we shall 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. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will be from that moment without compass, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view, a manifestation which will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time" (William Guy Carr, Pawns in the Game, p. xv-xvi).
Those whose eyes have been opened to the Scripture will be aware that not only is this ground plan policy of the best politicians, NGOs, global corporations, the UN, WTO, BIS, IMF and NATO money can buy, but this 'change' is scheduled for implementation after the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week. The Prophet's expositions have unveiled God's foreknowledge of the devious machinations of those working behind the scenes always under a different name and in a different occupation, and confirm the statement of Illuminus President F.D. Roosevelt, "If it happens in history you can bet it was planned that way".
Pike's military blueprint reveals the developed world is hostage to refugees of inassimilable race, language, culture, religion, colour and education (or lack thereof); doubtless mostly good peoplein their own estatein hostage as pawns to those at enmity with Adam's race and the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, to those who aspire to undisputed world domination offered in Matthew 4:8-9 and promised in the Babylonian Talmud and the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. We no longer live in self-governing independent nations but colonies of the United Nations Organization, bound under often secret treaties that return us to serfdom.
Mr. Rowan Gaither, President of the Ford Foundation, confided personally to Mr. Norman Dodd, Director of Research for the Reece Committee of the US Congress in 1953, "Mr. Dodd, all of us here at the policy making level of the Foundation have at one time or another served in the 0SS [the Office of Strategic Services, the forerunner of the CIA] or the European Economic Administration [the forerunner of the European Union], operating under directives from the White House [i.e. the enemy at the top within the gates, the puppet POTUS of the City of London's CFR]. We operate under those same directives. . . . The substance of the directives under which we operate is that we shall use our grant-making power to ['change' or] so alter life in the United States that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union".
This illuminates President Kennedy's plan to close the CIA, which is actually a part of British Intelligence set up for Queen Elizabeth I by the Jew Sir Francis Walsingham and consequently an organ of the sovereign City State of London that has ruled Britain as a colony since its invasion and defeat in 1688. Scripturally, this explains why we have fought most wars on the wrong side, and why, after Rome abrogates her agreement with the Jewish international banksters of the City the Black Nobility will align with Judaeo-Communist Russia and blast Vatican City State from the face of the earth as Jesus foretold in Revelation 17:1 18:20.
East and west will unite precisely as planned above and "the kings of the earth and of the whole world will gather together to the battle of the great Day of God Almighty" (Revelation 16:14, 16; 19:19). Unless you are baptized into Christ's left side before the close of the Gentile dispensation you will perish as another martyr of the Judaeo-Roman church and her daughter churches in hopes of retaining your Name in the Book of Life, and salvation (Revelation 13:15-18). In the latter part of the Second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week all sides will unite against Christ.
Revelation 19:20-21, "And the [Devil-incarnate] beast [or last pope, seemingly Francis I] was taken, and with him the false prophet [or former now coexistent pope, seemingly Benedict XVI] that wrought miracles in his presence [uniting a federation of world religions ostensibly against Judaeo-Communism], with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast [trinitarianism], and them that worshipped his image [Catholics, Protestants and forced proselytes]. These both were cast alive into the lake of Fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant was slain with the Sword of Jesus Christ who sat upon the horse, which [is the Spoken Word] that goes forth from His mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh".
The omnipotent power of the revealed Word is here metaphorically expressed. Riding His pure white horse Jesus will be "clothed in a vesture dipped in blood . . . and out of His mouth goes forth the sharp sword [of His Word], that with it He should smite the Gentiles: and He will rule them with an iron rod and tread the winepress of the wine of the anger of God the All-ruler".
The word "Rule" (Gk.) poimainw, which means "to shepherdise." And like a shepherd who cares for his sheep it will involve love, provision for all needs as well as discipline with swift and effective justice. Rather than wood, his staff will be a "rod of iron" symbolizing the strength, absolute authority and unbreakable nature of His authority and rule by THUS SAITH THE LORD for the Sword of the Spirit is the Spoken Word no longer wooing and winning but indicting for judgment. John 12:48, "He that rejects Me, and receives not My Words, has one that judges him: the Word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day . . . and His countenance was as the sun shines in His strength" (Matthew 17:2; Revelation 1:16; 10:1; 19:17).
The wine of God's wrathful indignation is the historic concrete of the wrath of God on the one hand, and the wrath of the heathen nations on the other"the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged" (Revelation 11:18; Daniel 12:2). This brings to Isaiah 34 and 63.
In Isaiah 34 we learn that God's wrath is kindled against all nations and upon all they possess. They are dedicated to utter destruction (Heb.) 'cherem' to the glory of God. The heavens will be rolled up as a scroll and Satan and his host of demons cast down to earth as described in the Sixth Seal (Revelation 6:12-17; 12:7-13). Once His sword has become drunk with blood in heaven it will descend to earth, thirsting for more blood. First it will descend upon Edom, which John Hyrcanus assimilated with the Judeans, who became the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews of the days of our Lord and today. His sword will be "soaked with blood and made fat with fatness. For it is the day of the Lord's vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion."
Isaiah 59:20-21 describes Zion's glory after Israel's affliction for unbelief when by revelation of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming 144,000 elect Israelites "finish the transgression" (Daniel 9:24) and are gloriously re-born as "a nation in one day." Chapter 60 portrays New Jerusalem permanently overshadowed by the Shekinah while in chapter 61 Messiah announces His twofold commission to bring Gospel mercy at His first Coming (Luke 4:18), and judgments on unbelievers and comfort to Zion at His second Coming followed by the millennium. Brother Branham "proclaimed the day of vengeance of our God" but in Malachi 1:4 "Edom said, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places; [and they have, but] THUS SAITH THE LORD, They shall build, but I will throw down; and they will call them, the wicked country, [and the world does], the people against whom the Lord [God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel] has indignation forever." Being of Cain's lineage the Edomites are accursed with all of his descendants, and therefore 'cherem' (Isaiah 34:5; Genesis 4:11; 9:25).
In chapter 62 Isaiah offers intercessory prayer for the restoration of Zion with God's promise of full redemption, and in chapter 63:1-6 he reveals how the Lord will avenge Israel by destroying His and their enemies, commencing with Edom. He pictures a person of commanding appearance approaching from Edom in magnificent but blood-stained raiment:
"Who is this coming from Edom, with [crimson-]dyed garments from Bozrah? the One adorned in His apparel, marching in the greatness of His strength? I who speaks righteousness, mighty to save (Revelation 19:11). Why is your apparel so red and your clothing stained like one who treads the winepress? I have trodden the winepress alone, not one of the Edomites was with Me: I trod them in My anger and trampled them in My wrath; their lifeblood sprinkled My clothing, and stained all My raiment. For the day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redeemed has come. I looked, but there was no one to help; and I was appalled that I received no support: so My own arm brought Me salvation; and My own indignation upheld Me. I trod them down in My anger, made them drunk in My fury, and poured out their lifeblood on the ground".
Messiah comes from executing judgment on Edom of whom Josephus said, "that they were hereafter no other than Jews" (Antiquities of the Jews, XIII, 9:1); He next proceeds to a second judgment embracing all nations in His long-purposed "day of vengeance" concurrent with Israel's year of Jubilee (Isaiah 61:2; Zechariah 14:7). Finally He repeats that although He brought salvation alone, and sees Himself isolated, He trusts in the strength of His own right arm and of His fury, and that He will tread down the nations, and shed their lifeblood. nl789.htm
