Bible Believers' Newsletter 970
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we welcome our new subscribers are appreciate the company of you who have fellowshipped with us so long.
It is sad to watch the irredeemably corrupt governments of the apostate (once) Christian nations of the Empire of the 'City' following the pale horse rider to perdition. "The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ, moves on: nor all thy piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a Line, nor all thy tears wash out a Word of it." The future has been written three and more thousand years in your own Bible; your only safe refuge is in the arms of our Lord Jesus Christ.
If anyone thinks Pizzagate is an exaggeration of internet conspiracy theories and that there is no proof of such allegations, remember we've been unable to get beyond the ruse of Lee Harvey Oswald or 19 hijackers flying commercial jetliners into WTC and the Pentagon; so much for the MSM. Former Director of the CIA, William Colby wrote the introduction for John De Camp's "The Franklin Coverup" and died under mysterious circumstances. In a conversation with De Camp Colby said, "What you have to understand, John, is that sometimes there are forces and events too big, too powerful, with so much at stake for other people or institutions, that you cannot do anything about them, no matter how evil or wrong they are and no matter how dedicated or sincere you are or how much evidence you have . . ." Woodrow Wilson said much the same.
To date, WikiLeaks has published over 10 million emails with no fake news. And so far no one has officially contested the validity of the leaked emails. The emails have become public and the MSM is blatantly ignoring the epic scandals as much as possible. And we live in the "good times!" A decade ago, Christians were abhorred at the prospect of homosexuality or same sex marriages, and couldn't imagine paedophilia which is sanctioned in both the Talmud and the Koran.
We live in the end of the Christian dispensation; Christ has been calling the wise and foolish virgins out from all Churches since His second or 'parousia' Coming in 1963. Soon He will gather His Children Home and then turn to call an election of Israelites returning to the Land of their Covenant after its defeat prophesied by Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and Zechariah.
In Part III of our study on "Revelation 7" we discuss Jesus Messiah's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel. Read carefully and meditate on the Scripture references. This week's news concerns the criminality of rogue states such as the USA and its lap dogs fulfilling the unchanging Word of God they disdain.
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.
Syria: Suspected Chemical Attack in Idlib Province kills Dozens, US points Finger at Assad 'barbarism'
April 6, 2017 — US President Donald Trump called the assault "reprehensible" and one that "cannot be ignored by the civilised world" . . . US presidents have rarely attacked their predecessors so aggressively for events like chemical weapons . . . Mr Trump left it to . . . Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, to assign culpability to Russia and Iran, Mr. Assad's most powerful allies . . . Full story: abc.net.au
Comment: This according to Australia's taxpayer-funded fifth column FAKE NEWS. The previous US Administration was criminal. If one reads history and the known facts it would seem likely the chemical attack was executed by agencies of the City of London, UK, France, Germany, or the USA, sponsors behind the long-planned invasions in North Africa and the Middle East.
Is this another US false flag black op. Georg Soros' "White Helmet" murderers are front and center . . . It is known that about 250 people from Majdal and Khattab were kidnapped by Al-Qaeda terrorists last week. Local sources have claimed that many of those dead from the chemical weapons were those from Majdal and Khattab.
[Prior to this event] Orient TV had already prepared a "media campaign" to cover the Russian and Syrian airstrikes in Hama countryside against terrorist forces, with the allegations that the airforces have been using chemical weapons.
Most telling however is the most recent report that shows the government does not deny striking Khan Sheikhun. Al-Masdar's Yusha Yuseef was informed by the Syrian Army that the air force targeted a missile factory in Khan Sheikoun, using Russian-manufactured Su-22 fighter jet to carry out the attack. Most importantly, the Su-22's bombs are unique and cannot be filled with any chemical substances, which is different than bombs dropped from attack helicopters. Yuseef was then told that the Syrian Air Force did not know there were any chemical substances inside the missile factory in Khan Sheikhoun.
It remains to be known whether there actually were chemicals in the missile factory targeted by the airstrikes, or whether the terrorist forces used gas on the kidnapped civilians from the pro-government towns and brought them in the lorry trucks to the site of the airstrikes . . .

US Seizes Dubious Chemical Weapons Attack to push for Expanded Syrian War
April 5, 2017 — The Trump administration has seized on allegations . . . the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad carried out a gas attack on the town of Khan Sheikhoun in the rebel-controlled province of Idlib to push for a further escalation of military conflict in the Middle East . . . Pro-government sources argued that the blast had been caused by an explosion at a weapons factory run by the Islamist al-Nusra Front, which has a strong presence in the region and has previously conducted chemical weapons attacks . . . Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov stated that the Syrian Air Force struck a munitions factory east of the town, where rebels were producing shells filled with toxic gas to be sent to Iraq. He added that Islamist militants had used similar chemical weapons last year during the fighting in the city of Aleppo.
. . . Late last week, high-ranking Trump administration officials, including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, stated publicly that Washington's main priority in Syria was not the removal of Assad but the waging of the conflict against Islamic State. This prompted a sharp rebuke from leading Republicans and Democrats. Senator John McCain denounced any shift away from "regime-change" . . . In the wake of Tuesday's alleged attack, the tone was quite different. The Trump administration and the corporate-controlled media wasted no time in declaring the guilt of the Assad regime to be beyond doubt . . . Western powers, led by the United States, have repeatedly seized on unverified allegations of chemical weapons' use in Syria to ratchet up pressure on the Assad regime. The attack on Gouta, which claimed the lives of up to 1,000, was the most infamous . . . Seymour Hersh [revealed] that the US deliberately ignored intelligence that al-Nusra was capable of manufacturing poison gas, including sarin, in bulk.
Trump and Tillerson have made no secret of their intentions to vastly escalate Washington's wars in the Middle East. Last week's remarks by Tillerson and Haley were in no sense a retreat from the US plan to assert hegemony over the energy-rich region, but a recognition that the US-backed rebel forces are in disarray after being driven out of Aleppo in December by Assad's military and Russian airpower . . . The prospect of a direct US-led assault on the Syrian regime cannot be underestimated. The alleged gas attack has provided the pretext.
Working people in the United States and internationally must reject with contempt the feigned outrage of Trump, Hollande . . . US imperialism has no qualms about indiscriminately massacring innocent civilians . . . Over the past quarter century, the unending series of wars waged by Washington have cost millions of people their lives and forced millions more to flee their homes. Full story: wsws.org
Comment: In the light of recent developments and accusations directed against the Syrian government, it is important once more to set the record straight: the US-supported rebels possess chemical weapons . . . the Pentagon not only provided chemical weapons to Al Nusra [in 2012], an affiliated Al Qaeda terrorist organization, but also provided training to the rebels in the use of these weapons . . . a United Nations independent commission of inquiry confirmed as early as May 2013 that the rebels rather than the government have chemical weapons in their possession and were using sarin nerve gas against the civilian population . . .

Susan Rice wiretapped Donald Trump's Team
April 6, 2017 — According to information gathered by Bloomberg and Fox News, it appears that the Obama Administration had in fact intentionally spied on Obama's political rival Donald Trump and his team. Not only Susan Rice but the following as well, appear to have organized this plot: her deputy Ben Rhodes (the author of the Bush Commission Report on September 11), the then Director of the CIA John Brennan and the then National Director of Intelligence, James Clapper.

Western Media Reaction to St. Petersburg Terror Attack. Not Front Page News
April 4, 2017 — Anything related to Russia is treated differently from similar events in the West. Reaction to Monday's St. Petersburg blast was far less compassionate than for similar incidents in Western cities . . . A day after . . . it was yesterday's news in America . . . BBC deplorably suggested a possible false flag scenario, implying Putin's responsibility for what happened—insinuating a diversionary tactic from domestic news . . .
He's overwhelmingly popular. Over 80% of Russians want no one else leading them. Orchestrated protests and other tactics used to try weakening his public support never work . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca
Revelation 7 Part III
Isaiah 34:8, "It is the day of the Lord's vengeance, and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion".
For two thousand years "the souls of righteous Israelites, martyred for the Word of God and for the testimony which they held have cried out with a loud voice from under the sacrifice altar where the blood of sacrificial animals was poured. "How long O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those that dwell on the earth?" And each was assured of salvation at the White Throne Judgment, but told they should rest for a season until the whole nation of 144,000 elect Israelites is born-again in one day, and then martyred" (Isaiah 66:8; Matthew 27:25; Revelation 6:9-11). Thus the terrible vengeance in recompense for the controversy of Zion is restrained.
The restoration of the Kingdom of Israel will be by instruction as revealed in the vision on Mount Transfiguration witnessed by Peter, James and John who saw Jesus transfigured in glorified form speaking with Moses and Elijah (Matthew 17:1-8). This shows the order of the resurrection: Moses represented the "dead in Christ, who shall rise first"; Elijah represented "we who are alive and remain" to be translated without death as he was. The prophet anointed by the Spirit that endued Moses will show the Israelites how their nation fell (Malachi 4:4; Matthew 15:1-9; John 11:47-53) and together with a prophet anointed by the Spirit that endued Elijah they will articulate the two thousand years of God's silence since Calvary before His visible appearing (Isaiah 63:1-6; II Thessalonians 2:8; I Timothy 6:14-15; Revelation 14:19-20; 19:11-16).
The truth is, then, that the Jews have always formed a rebellious element in every State and not more in those where they were persecuted than in those where they were allowed to dwell at peace. In fact, a careful study of their character throughout history shows that the Jew is well able to endure persecution with serenity provided he is permitted to carry on his natural avocations without hindrance, whilst on the other hand he finds it impossible to exist under a benevolent regime that limits his activities" (Mrs. Nesta Webster, "World Revolution," p. 163).
Matthew 24:(21-)29-31, "Immediately after the persecution of [the Christian dispensation] the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: and then [in the latter part of second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Daniel 7:11-14; Matthew 16:27; Revelation 1:7) the sign of the Son of man in heaven will appear: and all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they shall see the Son of man Coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory (Zechariah 12:9-14). [Prior to this] He will send His angels [in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Zechariah 4; Revelation 11:1-13)] with a great sound of [the Seventh] Trumpet (I Thessalonians 4:16; I Corinthians 15:52), and they shall gather together His elect Israelites from the four winds [of the 'hot stage' of World War III], from one end of heaven to the other [to the Land of the Covenant]".
It is patently obvious from this Scripture that as of the second week of April, 2017 the Israelites have NOT returned to the Land of the Covenant as most brethren in the circle of this Message mistakenly believe. (Also see Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:14; 27:13; 49:17; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 37:14; 39:27; Joel 3:1; Micah 5:3; Zechariah 10:9-12). In the midst of the Week Rome will abrogate her covenant with the international Jewish banksters, martyr the two witnesses (Revelation 6:11; 11:7-13) and the "time of Jacob's trouble [persecution]" will begin. After the resurrection and assumption of the prophets the Israelites will see Jesus only and belatedly recognize His second or parousia Coming to Israel (Matthew 23:39).
These things will come to pass during the tribulation poured out under the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trump and Seventh Vial. In his vision of Revelation 11:19 John saw "the temple of God in heaven was opened, and the ark of His Covenant was seen in His temple [signifying Israel is restored to God's favour]: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunders, and an earthquake (Revelation 6:12; 16:18; 18:21-23), and a great hail" (Revelation 11:19; 16:21).
Romans 11:13-16, "I speak to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify my office: if somehow I might provoke my fellow countrymen to jealousy and save some of them. For if their rejection means the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be, but Life from the dead? For if the first handful of dough offered as the first fruits [Abraham and the patriarchs] is consecrated holy, so is the whole lump [of the nation of his blood] holy: and if the root [Abraham] is holy, so are the branches" (Numbers 15:19-21).
In Matthew 16:27 – 17:13 Peter, James and John were three Israelite witnesses who "saw [a preview of] the Son of man coming in His kingdom in the glory of His Father with His angels," that's you and me (II Thessalonians 1:6-10). These men represented the 144,000 elect Israelites who will see "the sign of Christ's [second or 'parousia'] Coming [to Israel, which will] close the present order of the world's history." Subsequently Peter, James, John and Andrew (Mark 13:3) asked more particularly when these three events will transpire that they might be prepared. They did not ask the signs of His coming to judge the world at the end of time. The 144,000 will recognise the answers to these three questions through the ministry of their 'Moses' and 'Elijah' but after their martyrdom in the second half of the Seventieth Week.
Revelation 14:1-5. As John represents Christ's end-time Bride insert your name here] . . . . . . . . "saw, and beheld the Lamb [resurrected and glorified as Lord of lords and King of kings"] standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Name and His Father's Name [Lord Jesus Christ] written in their foreheads".
Like every man Jesus "comes in His Father's Name" (John 5:43). Scriptures such as Matthew 1:18, 20-23; Matthew 28:18-19, Luke 24:47 and Acts 2:38-39; John 1:18, 4:22b, 12:45, 14:9-13, 18-20, 23, 26, and I Timothy 3:16 reveal God is One (1) Person and "we must worship Him in spirit and in truth" (John 4:23-24) by His compound redemptive Name (singular), which is Lord Jesus Christ. Here we see the 144,000 who were not called in Revelation 7:1-8, no longer "blotted out from under heaven" (Deuteronomy 29:20) sealed in Tribal order by the Name above all names through their revelation of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel (Acts 4:12; Ephesians 1:21-23; Colossians 3:17).
When Christians are born-again we are "seated together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus" which is our place in the Body by "the present truth" for our day (Ephesians 2:5-6). When the 144,000 elect Israelites see the One they pierced standing in the air they will be born-again and recognized bona fide citizens of Mount Zion above. New Jerusalem is the true dwelling place of the living God and heavenly beings, the antitype of earthly Zion and the Temple made with hands where God once dwelt (Zechariah 12:10; Hebrews 12:22; Revelation 1:7).
The primitive Church is portrayed in Revelation 12 "clothed in the S_U_N of Righteousness"; the Moon, signifying the Law, is under her feet and her head is crowned with the doctrine of the twelve apostles. Here in Revelation 14 we find Israel's two prophets have been taken Home and 144,000 stand before Jesus. Like Joseph his type who was loved by his father but hated of his brothers and became second only to Pharaoh in the kingdom, Jesus was loved by His father, hated by His brethren and raised high above all things in heaven and on earth. When Joseph's brothers came to Egypt to purchase grain they did not recognize him dressed and speaking as an Egyptian. And Israel, the antitype of Genesis 45:1-8, is blinded by Talmudic lewdness: the antithesis of Moses and the prophets cannot recognize their Brother Jesus, even after 2,000 years. When Joseph revealed himself to his brethren he said, "God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance." And when Jesus reveals His 'parousia' Coming to His brethren they will ask, "What are these wounds in Your hands? And He will answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of My friends" (Zechariah 13:6). To which they will respond, "Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord" (Matthew 23:39).
This is the revelation story of Zechariah 12:9-14 "when every eye shall see Him" in clouds of glory (Revelation 1:7). "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me Whom they have pierced . . ."
Revelation 14:2-5, "And I heard a voice out of the heaven, as a voice of many waters [a great multitude], and as a voice of great thunder: and the voice which I heard was as of harpers harping with their harps: and they sing a new song before [not "in"] the throne [like their Queen, Christ's Wife], and before the four living creatures, and the elders: and no one could learn the song but the hundred and forty-four thousand who were purchased from the earth [for it is the revelation of the mysteries of the Seven Trumpets and Seven Vials]. These are they who were not defiled with women [churches]; for they are virgins [to the New Testament, and as attendants to Christ's Wife they are eunuchs (Matthew 19:12) and cannot reproduce as but 144,000 Israelites are predestinated]. These are they who follow the Lamb whithersoever He may go [in order to serve His Wife, their Queen]. These were bought from among men, a first-fruit unto God and the Lamb. And no falsehood was found in their mouth: for they are blameless".
Once the 144,000 Israelites are born-again the sixfold purpose of Revelation 6:1 to Revelation 19:21 will be fulfilled: nothing should further delay "the day of the Lord's vengeance, and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion" (Isaiah 63:4).
Twelve is a perfect number, signifying the perfection of government, or of governmental perfection. It is found as a multiple in all that has to do with rule. The sun which "rules" the day and the moon and stars which "govern" the night, do so by their passage through the twelve signs of the Zodiac which completes the great circle of the heavens of 360 (12 x 30) degrees or divisions, and thus govern the year.
Twelve is the product of 3 (the perfectly divine and heavenly number) and 4 (the earthly, the number of what is material and organic). This shows that God's eternal purpose is to embrace heaven and earth by changing His form and unfolding Himself in the flesh of His glorified Family, the new creation of God-men (II Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 1; 2:10; 4:24).
While seven is composed of 3 added to 4, twelve is 3 multiplied by 4, and hence denotes that which can scarcely be explained in words, but which the spiritual perception can at once appreciate, viz., organization, the products denoting production and multiplication and increase of all that is contained in the two numbers separately. The 4 is generally prominently seen in the twelve.
There were twelve Patriarchs from Seth to Noah and his family, and twelve from Shem to Jacob. The twelve sons of Israel though actually thirteen in number, there are never more than twelve names in any one list. There is about eighteen enumerations altogether, but in each list one or other is omitted. Generally it is Levi, but not always. In Revelation 7 both Dan and Ephraim are omitted (see p. 211), but the enumeration is still twelve, Levi and Joseph being introduced for this special sealing of the remnant which shall go through the great tribulation. Then there were twelve Judges or Saviours (see p. 214) . . .
The number of the sealed in Revelation 7:4 will be 144,000, and all that has to do with the Twelve Tribes is necessarily pervaded by this number, such as the stones in the High Priest's breastplate, the stones taken out of the Jordan, the number of the spies, etc. (E.W. Bullinger, Number in Scripture, Its Supernatural Design and Spiritual Significance).
In Revelation 7:4-8 Dan and Ephraim are missing—"blotted out from under heaven" (i.e. on earth) because of the idolatry of calf worship (Deuteronomy 29:16-21). Joseph and Levi were substituted in their place. Daniel 12:1 refers to the sealing of the 144,000 under the Sixth Seal in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. The Temple Registry of births, deaths and marriages was lost with the Temple, but God has the Book of Life and His Covenant was with an election of the pure blood of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—not Jewry—and He knows to which tribe every true Israelite belongs. After the tribulation those tribes will be restored, once again in divine order according to the vision of the millennium in Ezekiel 48:1-8, 22-29.
In Matthew 24:34 Jesus said, "This generation [race or descent from a particular people, that sees the restoration of the modern Israel State] shall not pass until all these things are fulfilled." Brother Branham said, "What will be in tribal order?—not the regular Jew; no, but the ones that's the elected—the 144,000 will be set in tribal order" (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 551:2). Again he said, "The sealing of the hundred and forty-four thousand of Israel; them
Jews[he means Israelites], not the Wall Street bunch that's always cheated and stole and everything else; I mean real Jews[Israelites], clearly true Jews[Israelites] that keep the commandments of God down there" (The Ten Virgins, p. 444:97).
It is interesting to note the Church is "built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone." Like the 144,000 elect Israelites, not one of these men was a Jew; our Lord God manifest in created flesh as the virgin-born Jesus Messiah to do the part of a kinsman Redeemer for Adam's race was an Israelite—not a Jew, and the members of Spiritual Israel, the Church will have "the Name of God, and the Name of the City of God, which is New Jerusalem, and His new Name written upon Him" (Revelation 3:12) for we are the City and House of God (I Corinthians 3:16-17; 6:19-20). Revelation 21:1-4:
"I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and the sea is no more. And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of the heaven from God, prepared as a Bride adorned for her Husband. And I heard a loud voice out of the throne saying, Behold, the dwelling of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His peoples, and God Himself will be with them; He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, nor shall sorrow, nor crying, nor pain be any more, because the former things are departed". nl970.htm
