Bible Believers' Newsletter 892
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are very happy to see you.
The blood moon that appeared last night was not visible in the antipodes so Australian Christians must see it on-line or go next door to watch it on the neighbour's TV.
Our focus on the current news centers upon the ongoing World War III exhibiting the gross iniquity of the apostate once Christian nations, destroying and looting true to Sabbatean principles and Jesuit casuistry, calling good evil and evil good. Pope Francis and national leaders have assented to the protocols of the UN 2030 Agenda laid out in "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion" so that the world can anticipate "austerity," divestment, deflation, depression, deindustrialization, depopulation, famine, disease and war followed by peace and totalitarian religious one world government that will be forced (Revelation 13:15-18). I'm beginning to feel "the squeeze".
Since we are in the build-up toward the 'hot stage' of World War III, in today's main article we present an exposition of the Three Woes which follow the Messages of Martin Luther, John Wesley, and William Branham, the last angels to the true and nominal churches. These Woes are earth's birth pains for regeneration; they manifest in World Wars I, II and Armageddon to deliver the renewed heavens and renewed earth after the general resurrection, White Throne Judgment, and destruction of death and hell in the Lake of Fire.
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.
Washington's Longstanding Plans to Implement 'Regime Change' in Syria
September 25, 2015 Washington doesn't negotiate. It demands. John Kerry saying he's willing to engage with Russia and Assad on Syria is smoke screen deception . . . Days after 9/11[/2001], retired General Wesley Clark visited then Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld at the Pentagon "No one will tell us where or when to bomb", he was told. Military commanders said Iraq would be attacked.
On a second visit, Clark was told plans were to "destroy the governments in seven countries," he explained. Besides ongoing war on Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran would be targeted.
As a brigadier general in 1991, Clark met with then Under Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz after Operation Desert Storm. He was told America planned multiple premeditated warsintending to destabilize and redraw the Middle East, changing its configuration under US-controlled puppet regimes . . .

NEO Washington has now Lost the Middle East
September 22, 2015 The logic of Washington's position of demanding Assad go is absurd. As Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov repeatedly stresses, Russia, which has been an ally of Syria for decades, will continue to supply military assistance to the legitimate Assad government in their battle to defeat Islamic terrorists . . .
What scares Washington warhawks is the possibility that Russia's strategy could succeed in ending the ISIS reign of terror . . . This is what is perhaps most upsetting the war planners in Washington. They realize they are on the verge of losing or most likely already have lost any remaining shred of power or influence over the countries of the entire Middle East including over Iran, the centerpiece of Obama Middle East policy at present . . .
"The Russian air force and navy are the strongest foreign military force in the eastern Mediterranean. The US deploys nothing comparable. Israel's military strength is substantial but no one is looking for a military clash with the Russians . . ."
If DEBKA file's report is accurate, the latest Russian Middle East peace strategy of diplomacy through strength has just dealt a devastating defeat to Washington's strategy of wars everywhere.
If Russia is able now to forge a genuine, honest coalition of nations to isolate and destroy the Washington-created Frankenstein monster called ISIS or IS; and to allow Syrians to settle their problems with the duly-elected President, Bashar al-Assad in free elections without the US-financed NGOs of George Soros or the National Endowment for Democracy (sic); then the world will take a giant step away from war . . .

Why Syria is Russia's Stalingrad
"Putin will use his first visit to the UN in a decade to defend his support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad forcefully, but Western and Arab governments will respond equally toughly," said Richard Gowan, who teaches at Columbia University. "Nasty debates over Syria could poison the atmosphere."
Russian president Vladimir Putin says "the [Syrian] refugees are fleeing the [US mercenary proxy army of] Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, or ISIS), not Assad." [President Al Assad was democratically elected with 90% of the vote and today his approval rating is 75% today]!
There is a world wanna-be hegemonUSA, aspiring to world domination. It has global leadership, but no domination. For domination it needs to control the world's resources. It can never control the human resources of China, but China without mineral resources is not a competitor. And the world's mineral resources are controlled by the USA (think about the prize number one) and Russia (think about the prize number two). Controlling the prize number two, the US gets the coveted world domination. Obvious and clear conclusion. Therefore, the main goal of the United Statesis the dismemberment of Russia, the separation of Siberia and the establishment over it of its control in the form of an informal protectorate, as now in Ukraine. It is important to understand that we are talking about dismemberment, and not about the destruction of Russia. Russia should stay in truncated borders to the Urals, as a natural buffer of Europe from the Muslim and Chinese civilizations. European democracy needs to feel comfortable on the European peninsula. Europe needs a truncated Russia with a strong army capable to successfully repel the attacks of the Islamists and take on all the hardships of a frontier state . . .
. . . If you look at the ethno-confessional map, it becomes clear that the main attack against Russia will target the underbelly, from the South through Central Asia, through the former Central Asian republics by ISIS opening a new front against them . . . the second front against Russia . . . is Ukraine. The events in Ukraine, Syria and Iraq were almost simultaneous, and provoked by one and the same powerUnited States of America. According to now completely obvious plan, Russia was supposed to get bogged down in the war with Ukraine, fall under global sanctions and resource depletion on the eve of a decisive blow of ISIS through Central Asia. It didn't happen. And today we can only stand to applaud the Russian leadership, masterfully responding to the global provocation of the USA in Ukraine. Sanctions against Russia have not, so far at least, took on a global nature, and Russia did not get bogged down in the war in Ukraine, got Crimea back without bloodshed, and created a buffer DPR and LPR with armies comparable to Ukrainian. Tactical successes are exemplary. Obviously, there will be no flushing of DPR and LPR. In the unrecognized form they will "hold down the front" against the Banderites as much as needed, untying Russia's hands in the Middle East, where the major strategic objective is the destruction of ISIS . . . Syria is today's Stalingrad. It cannot be surrendered and it will not be. The stakes do not allow it . . . All the words of Americans about the coalition and the fight against ISIS are a lie and hypocrisy. They will not seriously fight ISIS. And they don't want Russia in any form in the anti-ISIS coalition. The decision about the transfer to Syria of Russian arms and military advisers only confuses their plans. How the US will try to push Russia out of Syria, we will learn from the discussions at the UN General Assembly. The pressure will be insane, but we will not budge.
In time the Americans will still have to answer how ISIS got a hold of billions of dollars, the oil fields and weapons. The primary objective of ISIS is to overthrow Assad and destroy Syria. The Americans plan to simulate a war with ISIS for years, as already stated at the official level in order not to interfere with its actions in Central Asia, giving the whole of Syria into the hands of ISIS. The time will show how the events will develop in Syria. Having slept through a global geopolitical provocation of Americans in the Middle East and Ukraine, the Russian leadership largely nullified America's success with effective tactical successes. But the overall situation remains extremely difficult. It is necessary to understand without illusions. Our country [Syria] is going through its 1942 . . . Full story: syrianfreepress.wordpress.com
Comment: For lovers of truth the Syrian Free Press Website exposes the criminal activities of the Jewish-controlled US, Israel and Allies, their rape and rapine in Syria and the Middle East in support of the City of London's fractional reserve usury, the oil-backed US dollar, and control of natural resources for global hegemony.
Russian marines clashed with ISIS near Latakia, Syria, on Sunday, allegedly killing several militants and capturing others . . . the Russian newspaper Segodnya reported ISIS militants "possessed a detailed plan of the air base and clear satellite imagery with the marked key military installations," but Russia has only been operating the airbase for the past week or so. That begs the question: who provided ISIS with that kind of intelligence? [You have one guess, it starts with U and it is not Tasmania (infowars.com)].
Update on Russia
After the Berlin Wall came down, the Soviets were flat on their backs. Dead broke. They needed money. They needed technology. So with Vladimir Putin at the helm, they played the game, and succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. Forget China. For the past fifteen years, Russia has been the world's true economic miracle. So was Germany, 1933-41 . . . Russia has to learn from her neighbors' experience and even treat him with nice chunk of Baltic & Schlesien and be free to keep the rest . . . Its economy grew nearly ten times in value. That's real economic growth, too: Russia has the lowest debt level of any major country in the world. The Russians have the largest, most mineral-rich nation on earth. They have the world's largest proven reserves of oil and natural gas, vast supplies of diamonds, uranium, gold, and strategic minerals. They export food, energy, technology, minerals and arms. No wonder Putin is the most popular leader on the planet, with an 80% to 90% (depending on the month) approval rating. The Russians have modernized their oil sector: it is second to none. They made the largest business deal in history: the oil/gas pipeline to China. That means in less than two years they won't give a damn about selling oil and gas to Europe. Or for that matter sanctions: they will be the major supplier to the biggest, fastest growing markets on earth (Asia). . . Full story: Wall Street Insider

Iraqi Official: Riyadh plotted Mina Tragedy to abduct Iranian, Iraqi Officials
September 30, 2015 Hassan Salem, the head of Iraq's Sadeqoun party, said that the Hajj stampede was a plot by the Saudi regime to abduct Iranian and Iraqi officials. Salem said that the convoy of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud caused the death of thousands pilgrims, and said, "Many of these pilgrims are the Iraqi and Iranian officials who have been abducted."
After the 24 September 2015 stampede in Mecca, 1,090 bodies were taken to mortuaries . . . A stampede during one of the last rituals of the Hajj season killed more than 4,173 people and left 2,000 wounded. "Nahrin Net network news has learned from employees working in the European Union that there are whispers in diplomatic circles in Brussels that the (Mecca stampede). . . was the result of a "deliberate process" and was pre-prepared by Israeli and Saudi intelligence services targeting the officials of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps and Iranian officials in the State, including diplomats . . ."

Race, Politics and Hypocrisy in 21st Century America
September 14, 2015 As the American bankrolled and Israeli directed ISIL creates havoc all around Israel (not touching a grain of sand IN Israel); the populations of these Middle Eastern countries are fleeing to Europe in fear of their lives. This is all according to plan set forth by Israel so they can depopulate the surrounding border countries as much as possible.
Look in the near future for another false flag incident coordinated to allow Israel to expand its border "for security reasons" just like the Golan Heights scam. Less population existing in these border countries the less resistance they will encounter.
Jewish publications, worldwide, are attempting to pressure Jews to emigrate to Israel, allegedly to flee anti-Semitism in their present countries of abode. But in all actuality it's a front to increasing the population in Israel so they will have live bodies to plunk down in newly created settlements soon to be formed in newly acquired territory.
For those of you who fall for the incessant Jewish bleating that the Protocols of Zion are a myth you had better wake up and open your peepers. These people are infecting the entire planet with their filth.
We should be bombarding our Congress and Senate shills to throw off the Jewish yoke and get started with a Jew free America starting with cleaning out the government at all levels.
Gun control is just one snow flake on the tip of the iceberg with these people. It should be MANDITORY reading, for every American child in school, to read about the Bolshevik Jewish overthrow of the Russian government and how the people suffered under Jewish dictatorship. People have no earthly idea what is in store for them it all proceeds as planned . . . Full story: thepoliticalcesspool.org
United Nations Farce: Saudi Arabia to Head UN Human Rights Council
September 24, 2015 The UN has appointed Saudi Arabia's envoy to the United Nations Human Rights Council to head (or should that be "behead") an influential human rights panel. The appointment was seemingly made in June, but only came to light on 17th September, due to documents obtained by UN Watch . . .
UN Watch points out that the UN has chosen: "a country that has beheaded more people this year than ISIS to be head of a key Human Rights panel . . ." In May, just prior to the appointment, the Saudi government advertised for eight extra executioners to: ". . . carry out an increasing number of death sentences, which are usually beheadings, carried out in public." Seemingly: "no special qualifications are needed." The main function would be executing, but job description: "also involves performing amputations . . ." The advert was posted on the website of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Ministry of the Civil Service . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Yemen as Laboratory: Why is the West so silent about this Savage War?
September 25, 2015 The Coalition is meant to be the first exercise of a GCC 'rapid deployment force' advised discreetly by Israeli and American officers. Such coordination in the attack of an Arab country is novel . . . Yemen as a laboratory for new wars? It seems bizarre since, compared to Gaza, Yemen is far larger, intelligence mapping of the population far poorer, and there is still something of a ground army standing. But if one remembers how Yemen has served as a laboratory for US drones, including targeted assassination of a US citizen . . .
In the Arabian Peninsula, there is a promising oil field in the Empty Quarter [Rub'al-Khali] that will obligate the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council and Yemen to cooperate to protect it and its gains. This unity will be modeled—or rather, must be modeled—on the US constitution that united America and granted it its democracy. As for the promising Ogaden [oil] field in Ethiopia, it will unite the Horn of Africa under Ethiopia's leadership. And a bridge shall be built between the African continent and the Arabian Peninsula: The Al-Noor Bridge that shall connect the city of Al-Noor in Djibouti and the city of Al-Noor in Yemen . . .

Comment: Israeli/Saudi Arabia Tactical Nuclear Strike on Yemen. Neutron bombs were used youtube.com, youtube.com, and Israel was busted nuking Yemen.
The objective of the Jew-nited States is the establishment of unscriptural 'Greater Israel' from the Nile to the Euphrates, taking in Syria with the exception of the Kurdish area in the north east. As mentioned in previous Newsletters, Israel has long been working with the Kurds to undermine President Assad. Lebanon, Jordan, half of Iraq, and the most fertile land of Egypt and the division of the Middle East will all be absorbed according to the Yinon/Bernard Lewis plan. This would see the Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Yemen, their oil and gas resources and the Suez Canal all under dominion to the US image of the beast (Revelation 13:11-18).
The neo-Roman Empire of Papal Rome and her US image are working toward one world government prophesied in Revelation 17:11-18 wherein Pope Francis will be the eighth deified Roman Emperor when he is incarnate of Satan (Isaiah 14:12-17; Daniel 7:25; 8:25; 11:36; II Thessalonians 2:3-12; Revelation 13:1-10). As you can see from this map the Middle East and North Africa is being conquered to form the seventh of ten global regions prophesied in Daniel 7:23-28 and Revelation 17. (See Newsletters 541, 683, 687, 849 and 856). Proposed by the Club of Rome in a report published on September 17, 1973, entitled the "Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System" which would unite the entire world under a common leadership. These ten regions have potential to constitute a global Holy Roman Empire.
Palestinians learning Hebrew for Strategic Advantage
Gaza City, September 22, 2015 Palestinians learning Hebrew for strategic advantage The number of Palestinians learning Hebrew in Gaza is on the rise, and for a variety of reasons.
"There is a growing need to learn the Hebrew language that stems from the importance of knowing how Israelis think about us and what they say about us on their radio stations, television channels and in the newspapers," said Ahmad al-Salihi, who is learning Hebrew at the Nafha Center for Prisoners Studies and Israeli Affairs, a local education facility. "During the last Israeli war, Israeli TV channels covered everything that was going on in Gaza for the Israeli public to see. Sometimes, I would see the Israeli reporter being very serious, then I would see him laugh and sometimes he would seem annoyed. I wanted to know the truth behind these mix of feelings toward us," he told Al-Monitor.
Gazans do not consider Hebrew to be a strange language. Before the second intifada erupted in 2000, more than 40,000 workers from Gaza spoke Hebrew fluently from working for several years in different fields in Israel. Some Palestinian prisoners released from Israeli prisons can also speak fluent Hebrew, and some of them have established centers for studies and translation . . . Full story: al-monitor.com
Comment: What is not realized is that this is the grace of God toward Israelites of the blood of Abraham, Isaac and Israel. The people of the Old Covenant do not live in modern Israel but in the Muslim nations in which Israelis are commiting genocide according to Genesis 27:39-41. Genuine blood Israelites will not return to the Land of the Covenant until the modern Israel state is utterly defeated according to Zechariah 14:2 and there has been a mass exodus of self styled Jews. (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:14; 27:12-13; 49:17; Jeremiah 3:12-18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 37:1-28; 39:27-28; Micah 5:3; 2:12-13; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31, and so on). "The envy of Ephraim will depart, and Judah will not vex Ephraim". There are possibly more blood Israelites among Palestinians than in Israel.

Revelation 21:1, "I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea".
Revelation 14:6-12, "I saw another angel fly in midheaven, having the everlasting Gospel to preach to those who live on the earth and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people [so he ministered during the Gentile dispensation]. And he said with a loud voice, Fear God, and give Him glory, for the hour of His judgment has come: and worship Him who made the heaven and earth and the sea and the springs of waters." The great Martin Luther sounded the trumpet of the everlasting Gospel to preach to the entire world: "salvation is by grace through faith alone"].
"A second angel followed, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, she who made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her [spiritual] fornication [which is idolatry]." John Wesley preached Scriptural holiness: "Follow peace with all, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord"].
"A third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, anyone who worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured undiluted into the cup of His indignation; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels [glorified saints (Mark 8:38)], and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; those who worship the beast and his image and whoever receives the mark of his name have no rest day or night. Here is the perseverance of the saints who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus" [that is, the 144,000 elect Israelites]." God's prophet William Branham "proclaimed the day of vengeance of our God" (Isaiah 61:2) by the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6 calling the wise and foolish virgin OUT from the great Whore and her harlot daughter churches to be sealed with the Spirit and escape the great tribulation where the elect Israelites will be martyred.
The rapture is a revelation so the Church is gone after the third angel's Message and the close of Laodicea, caught up in the Spirit into the rapture with both feet firmly planted on earth (Revelation 4:1-2). The end-time began when Christ took the Book, loosed its Seals and revealed their mystery through His Prophet (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 4; 5; 10:1-7). Verses 12-13 speak of the 144,000 Israelite saints who will "die in the Lord from thereon . . . that they may rest from their labours" (Revelation 14:13). Armageddon will follow.
Brother Branham's Message is to the world. Matthew 24:14 says, "This Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness to all nations; and then shall the end come." His Message has been preached in all the world, and the end has come. When the last saint predestinated to the Laodicean Church Age was born-again in March, 1963, Christ's mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Word was fulfilled and redemption was over. Christ's end time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites do not require mediation because we will each receive the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication through the revelation of the Seven Seals or the Seven Trumpets. However, the old order of the world cannot end and the Day of the Lord cannot begin until the last member of Christ's end-time Bride recognizes their day and becomes a written epistle of its Message.
Matthew 24:15, "Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (let the reader understand)." In 168-167BC the reader would have understood this to be Antiochus Epiphanes offering swine on the altar (Daniel 11:31). In the days of the primitive Church the elect would have understood this to refer to the Legions of General Titus surveying Jerusalem from Mount Scopus (Matthew 24:16-21). In the seventh century it would have meant the construction of Es Sakhra on Temple Mount. For Christ's end-time Bride it will mean its demolition by earthquake, igniting the 'hot stage' of World War III. For the foolish virgin in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week it will refer to the covenant between Rome and the Jewish banksters of the City of London to refinance the US dollar with gold backing (Daniel 9:27). In the second half of the Seventieth Week it will refer to Isaiah 14:12-13, Daniel 8:10-11; 12:11 and II Thessalonians 2:3-12 when the Devil-incarnate Pope usurps the dedication of the third temple and last abomination, terminating animal sacrifices and beginning to force the mark of the beast as prophesied in Revelation 13:15-18.
We receive the mark of the beast when we refuse the Tree of Life which is Christ the revealed Word of God, and choose wisdom by "partaking of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil" (Genesis 2:17), an appellation for "the great dragon . . . that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan" (Revelation 12:9). The mark of the beast is the mark of Cain and his children (Genesis 4:3-24; Matthew 23: 1-38; Luke 16:8; John 8:44; I John 3:10).
"The mark in the right hand" signifies obeisance to the beast whereas "the mark in the forehead" indicates receiving the trinitarian dogma of "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH" (Revelation 17:5). So it should be clear that most of the world and almost everyone you know has received the Mark of the beast already, willingly or in ignorance.
The three angels' Messages are followed by three woes which are earth's birth pains for renewal. The members of Christ's Bride are born-again through justification by grace through faith, sanctification and the baptism with the Holy Spirit when their old husband, the worldly nature of Satan, the god of this evil age, is dead to them. You are separated from that union by spiritual death: your natural desire to cut your hair, the natural desire to go mixed bathing, wear shorts and jeans, paint your face, smoke, drink, "work out" God's Word by your intellect and worldly self-seeking are dead, and the new Man is living in union in you. In the same way the old world order has to die before the heavens and earth can be reborn.
When a woman travails in birth her pains become closer together and more intense as she nears the time for delivery. So is it with 'mother earth.' In the First World War she endured severe birth pains, smitten by machine guns, Howitzers, mustard and chlorine gas and aerial bombardment from biplanes and triplanes, the co-pilot dropping bombs from his hand. The slaughter of Adam's race by their own kinsmen was so severe the Lord intervened with the Armistice (Revelation 9:15). After the six written Seals Jesus "saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree" (Revelation 7:1).
These four messengers of judgment are the four horses [or demonic powers] Satan rode as he withstood Christ's Bride under the first Four Seals, impersonating the true Church to establish Roman Universal religious government that will worship him incarnate in Rome's last pope as once he was worshipped vicariously as Caesar (Revelation 17:7-11). Under the First Seal he assumed spiritual authority by establishing the papacy, changing one word to deceive the second Eve as he had added one word to deceive the first Eve (Genesis 3:4); claiming "There is one mediator between God and MAN [singular], Christ's vicar the pope." Howbeit "There is one mediator between God and MEN [plural], the Man Christ Jesus" (I Timothy 2:5). By this nicolaitane strategy he usurped Christ's Headship and placed a clerical hierarchy between God and men (Revelation 2:6, 15). Under the Second Seal Satan gained political hegemony over rulers; while under the Third Seal he exercised demonic power—Mariolatry, communing with dead saints, transubstantiation, selling indulgences for future sins [in accord with the Kol Nidre prayer of the Synagogue of Satan], pronouncing anathemas, papal infallibility, and denominationalism. Under the Fourth Seal Satan having accumulated all of these earthly powers and authorities is ready to incarnate himself in "that man of sin, the son of perdition" for universal rule under the Sixth Seal (The Seal of God, p. 32:239).
Imperial Rome was an amalgam of the evil attributes of the previous three beasts or Gentile world empires of Daniel 7; under the first three Seals of the Gentile dispensation Satan accrued spiritual (ecclesiastical), political and demonic power, plus Papal livery. Under the Fourth Seal early in Laodicea the more mobile industrialized populations, striving for intellectual, political and economic self-determination and social equality, and dissatisfied with the status quo, challenged the tight rein of the Judaeo-Roman church. Thus "the four winds" which signify war and strife were loosed in World War I which was the First Woe. This terminated the Fifth Trumpet and identified the king of the bottomless pit as "the Destroyer . . . king of demons and angel of the bottomless pit" who will incarnate the last pope, evermore called the beast (Revelation 9:11-12; 17:8-11). Laodicea ended in 1963 and after fifty-two years we are nearing the end of the holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel's Pentecostal feast. All power is centered in Rome: this collectivist nature is peculiar to Judaism, Romanism, Islam and Communism which share a common heritage.
Because "Jews" impersonate the Israelites they partake of their persecutions under the four angels or horses of the papal Roman beastvery largely at the hand of their own 'hidden' leadersbut without the glorious blessing promised the elect of Abraham's natural seed. When the Gentile day of grace is over, and the 144,000 elect Israelites have received their former and latter rain they will be martyred by the incarnate Satan who will thereafter destroy his own church (Revelation 17:16-18; 18:8-20). Then the trail of the Serpent should be clear even to slow learners. Note that at no time are the four winds prevented from harming God's servant nation for the Trumpet judgments are His rod to chastise, correct and turn Israel back to the Land of the Covenant, the one place He can recognize him as a nation. Only in Jerusalem can Israel recognize his Messiah and mourn the atonement they have rejected up to that time.
World War I was the beginning or sorrows or birth pains whereby earth will renew herself (Matthew 24:8). Brother Branham said had the Lord not stopped the war it would have culminated in Armageddon at that time. Daniel 7:19-26, 9:26-27, and Revelation 19 inform us that the war and earth's birth pains will continue "until the consummation".
Revelation 7:2-3, "And I saw another Angel ascending from the East, having the Seal of the living God: and He cried with a loud Voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea. Saying, Do not harm [the beast from the] earth, [or the beast from] the sea, or the trees [i.e. nations] till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads" (Revelation 14:1-5). The same Angel marked the faithful Hebrews who sighed and cried for the abominations done in Judah, and sought to correct those things before Nebuchadnezzar took over the kingdom (Ezekiel 9:3-4).
God cannot seal His elect servants or deal with Israel outside the Promised Land where the Covenant is without effect. The sealing Angel ascending from the sun-rising indicates the imminent restoration of the "fig tree" and the end of the ages (Malachi 4:1-3; Matthew 23:39; 24:3, 32-34). On December 9, 1917, General Allenby marched into Jerusalem and took it under the prophecy of Revelation 7:2 without firing a shot. Apparently the word passed down Ottoman lines, and "Allenby's coming," became "Allah's coming" when it reached Jerusalem and the Turks surrendered. One year later at 1100hrs November 11, World War I ended as mysteriously as Jerusalem had surrendered the previous year. Christ will restrain the four judgment angels to whom it is given to hurt the earth and the sea until "the third part of man" is sealed by the Spirit (Revelation 7:4-8).
In World War II earth suffered greater birth pangs in the Second Woe with battle tanks, flame throwers, carpet bombing, incendiary, 'blockbuster' and atomic bombs. God next hardened the hearts of Mussolini (Fascism), Hitler (Nazism) and Stalin (Communism) in the Second Woe in order to force the Israelites back to Palestine. In 1948 the name and the land of Israel were stolen by non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews who have since built the infrastructure for the Israelites to occupy following their mass exodus in the wake of the defeat, rape and rapine of Jerusalem at the close of the Gentile dispensation (Daniel 11:39; Zechariah 13:8 14:2; Revelation 16:19). Only after the 'hot stage' of World War III will the twelve tribes return to the land for their redemption.
Although nuclear explosions have continued since World War II there will be a resurrection before man inflicts the final birth pang in the Third Woe subsequent to Satan's casting down and incarnation at the cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary (Daniel 7:11-12; Revelation 12:12; 19:11 20:3). Brother Branham said, "She cannot stand another labor pain. With these missiles and things today, one more war will throw her out into space, for she will now be delivered and there'll be a new earth" (This Day This Scripture is Fulfilled, #3:8R, p. 4:28; Birth Pains, p. 15:3-4; Isaiah 24:19; Revelation 21:1).
World War III is in process right now using differences stirred up between Political Zionists, colonies of the Jews' City of London such as Britain, USA, Israel and Australia, and the leaders of the Moslem world. It is being directed in such a manner that Islam (the Arab World) and Political Zionism (including Israel) will destroy one another, while at the same time the remaining nations, once more divided against each other, will be forced to fight themselves into a state of complete exhaustion physically, mentally, spiritually and economically in the third major revolution—Armageddon; as per Protocol 5:11 and the prophecies of Revelation, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and Zechariah.
The Third Woe is going to be dreadful. Brother Branham spoke of germ warfare, "I'm told in the Bible that there'll be a time come for those who are not in this wonderful S_O_N-Light, that the fowls of the air will eat the flesh of them, that diseases is on its road, that the doctors will never be able to stop. It's the plagues of God" (God's Provided Way of Healing, #54-0719A; God's Provided Way of Fellowship, #60-0709; Zechariah 14:12).
Jesus prophesied a repetition of the conditions of the days of Noah (Matthew 24:37; Genesis 6:11-13). Once again hubris has overcome the sons of Cain as exhibited by Jewish president Barack Obama, John Kerry and apostate Gentiles hastening the consummation of life in the "Third Woe" in the aftermath of World War III "called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon". The Third Woe will also be inflicted from space by missile, satellite and scalar warfare, and "with the sword of Him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of His mouth".
Since the revelation of the Seven Seals, the Lord has spat the disinterested nominal church from His mouth; it is lukewarm to the point of apostasy it makes him sick, whereas in Revelation 1:13 we see one like the glorified Son of man in the midst of His glorified Bride of all Ages. He is no longer a mediator for his robe falls down to the foot, a mark of high rank. He is girt about the breast with a golden girdle "for glory and beauty," the combined insignia of royalty and priesthood (Isaiah 4:2). His being in the midst of the lampstands—seen only in the holy place—shows He is King and Judge.
Representing Christ's end-time Bride on earth, John sees a vision of the White Throne Judgment in the Day of the Lord as confirmed by Daniel 7:9-14 and Revelation 20:5-15. If you are baptized into Christ you were judged in Christ on Calvary; you have eternal Life "and will not come into condemnation but have [already] passed from death unto Life" (John 5:24). As Daniel saw the same vision he must have heard and seen William Branham, the "angel" of Revelation 1:1 to whom the Lord Jesus communicated this mystery.
Revelation 20:5-15, "And I saw a great White Throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books [of sinners] were opened: and another Book was opened, which is the Book of Life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works." This is the judgment of the nations to which Jesus referred in Matthew 25:31-34.
"And the sea gave up the dead that were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead that were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. [The non-elect whose names remained in the Book of Life are granted into eternal Life by the saints seated in the Throne with Christ, our Husband; our names are in the Lamb's Book of Life]. And death and hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death. Those names were not found written in the Book of Life will be cast into the Lake of Fire".
At the Great White Throne there will be three kinds of believers. The saints or true believers will be in the Judgment seat with Christ (I Corinthians 6:2. The make-believers are the "saved" whose names have remained in the Book of Life. God is not unjust: the heathen who knows not Christ because we have not taken the Message to Him but has lived a righteous life, will be spared. The un-believers whose names are absent the Book of Life will be speechless when their life is played out before them. On that day there will be no excuse and they will be cast into the Lake of Fire.
The sevenfold personage of His glorified being described in Revelation 1:13-20 and Daniel 7:9 declare "His head and His hair was white as snow [bespeaking wisdom]. His eyes were like a flame of fire," the eyes of the Judge who will recompense those who rejected Him. Those same eyes saw visions, looked deep within the hearts of men and read their very thoughts. Blazing out of mortal eyes was God, who cried to those who knew Him not for what He was. The day of mercy is over.
"His feet were like fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace." Brass represents divine judgment that cannot be tempered: the Church is build upon faith in the divine judgment He suffered in order that the mystery of God's will and eternal purpose might be accomplished in the Kingdom. "His voice as the sound of many waters" is the Voice of judgment; the voices of ministers who cried out through the Spirit in every Age are rising in judgment against the sinner who did not take warning.
"And He had in His right hand seven stars . . . which are the angels of the Seven Church Ages." God has neither left nor right hand; this expression signified they drew their inspiration from Him under preeminence to Him and what they say He will prosper; it is the voices of the Seven Thunders. "And out of his mouth goes a sharp two-edged sword . . . discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart . . . And the Word was made flesh and dwelled among us." Now the Word is made flesh in His church through the ministry of the seven angels in His hand. God is depending upon His church. He is relying on Christ's end-time Bride to bring evening Light to a dying, traditional world (Revelation 10:8-11). With the sword of the Word manifest in His saints "He will smite the nations [at the White Throne Judgment] and rule them with a rod of iron".
"His countenance was as the sun shines in its strength." This is how He is coming again. This is how Peter, James and John saw Him on Mount Transfiguration (Matthew 17:1-13). The New Jerusalem will need no light. The sun will not rise and shine there, for He is her Sun and Light, and the saints will walk in His Light (Revelation 21:23).
We live amidst Laodicean gloom which is neither day nor night, hot or cold, a time of wars and troubles and confusion in nature's order—in gender, in isms and denominations whose people know there is a God, but unable to catch the revelation they are souls imprisoned now. They believe in the second Coming but cannot recognize "the evening Light" of Zechariah 14:7 and Matthew 24:28 for which Brother Branham went West as instructed by these Scriptures and the vision of God wherein he was caught up from Sunset Mountain into the Shekinah or Presence of Christ the fullness of the Word signified by a constellation of the theophanies of the angels to the seven Church Ages, an alignment confirming "when that which is perfect is come then that which is in part shall be done away" (I Corinthians 13:10). "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea". nl892.htm
