"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Draw close to the Lord this holiday season while grace abounds and make restitution with God and man. Christians do not believe in Christmas but let us reciprocate in spirit with good will and warm affection for family, friends and loved ones. Let bygones be bygones, redeem the time and savor the peace for the times they are a-changing and we will never pass this way again. Sinners have sown the wind and will soon reap the whirlwind in the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial.
The world is screaming toward the consummation and the abyss. God's simple, firm and final solutions for the social, moral, economic, religious and political problems overwhelming people, places and all humanity are enunciated in the grace of His unchanging Word. But His way is refused while human reasoning and unjust, unnecessary laws yield political advantage and power to a godless few atop the dung heap spending the people's money without accountability on schemes proven to fail through 6,000 years. "The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain" (I Corinthians 3:20).
Conditions legitimizing the 'squeeze' were passed at the United Nations' Earth Summit in 1992, many of them encapsulated in Local Agenda 21, a Communitarian artifice of Communism whereby Big Brother potty-trains the thoughts, attitudes and energies of local communities into an industrial mold of his design. You should not think; Big Brother loves you: he knows best and he will tell you what to do.
He has potty-trained politicians, providing money and influence, feeding or preying upon their weaknesses. They need one another, but Big Brother is indispensable and his will will be done. Hence governments and their organs of propagandaradio, television and printare directed to manipulate the public mind with historical lies and foolish thoughts, submitting men to the deception of false flag psyops, lying statistics and sending him to fight wars planned to advance Big Brother's ultimate objective. Language is perverted, word meanings are reversed; what was wrongfoul language, poor grammar and bad manners, homosexuality, adultery, abortion, and the destruction of national culture, confusion of race, gender and religionhas become proper. Righteousness is belittled and proscribed. Even US Supreme Court judges appear intent upon invalidating the clear and crucial constitutional language as to presidential eligibility causing the Constitution to be "broke a little more".
Because man has not seen fit to retain the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel in his heart and live strictly according to the Absolute of His unchanging Word, He has given them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts. Professing themselves to be wise, they have become fools, believing myths surrounding holocausts, 9/11, climate change, terrorism in Mumbai, internet censorship, peak oil, al Qaeda, free trade and globalization as gospel, because Big Brother says so. Were they to "receive the word with all readiness of mind, and search the Scriptures daily whether those things were so" (Acts 17:11) they would find Big Brother is a liar. God is not a trinity, the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church never was Christian, Jews are not the children of Israel, Judaism is not the faith of Moses and the prophets, and since "that which is perfect has come, Christ is no longer a Mediator for PART-Word mingled with such egregious lies" (I Corinthians 13:10).

Background on Zionist Plans to Break-up Pakistan
December 12, 2008 The Mumbai attacks were actually an anti-Pakistan false-flag psyops operation from the Nariman House Mossad hub.
"It is essential that we strike and crush Pakistanis, enemies of Jews and Zionism, by all disguised and secret plans" (David Ben Gurion, first prime minister of the Zionist entity).
"The World Zionist Movement should not be neglectful of the danger of Pakistan to it. And Pakistan should now be its first target, for this ideological state is a threat to our existence. And Pakistan, the whole of it hates the Jews and loves the Arabs. The love of the Arabs is more dangerous to us than the Arab themselves. For that matter it is most essential for the world Zionism that it should now take steps against Pakistan. . . Whereas the inhabitants of the Indian peninsula are Hindus . . . whose hearts have been full of hatred throughout history against the Muslims. Therefore India is the most important base for us to work there from against Pakistan. It is essential that we exploit this base and strike and crush Pakistanis, enemies of Jews and Zionism, by all disguised and secret plans" (Muhammad Hamid, 1978, The Unholy Alliance, Indo-Israel Collaboration Against the Muslim World, p. 168).
"The Pakistan army carries great love for the Prophet Muhammad and this is what strengthens the bonds between Pakistan and the Arabs. And this is really the grave danger to the world Zionism and a stumbling block to the expansion of Israel. Therefore it is essential for the Jews that they should destroy the love for the Prophet Muhammad by all means" (Muhammad Hamid, 1978, ibid, p. 168). . . Full story: dailymuslims.com
Comment: If you read between the lines in this article by Arundhati Roy you will discern the meticulous long term planning and malice a-foresight of 'the City of London' when they partitioned India in 1947 for such a time in which we live when they are about to embark on their end-game for establishing Lucifer's totalitarian one world government tomdispatch.com. Those who live in the West will be conscious of the hatred for Islam and Muslims impressed on nominal Christian churches.
Facing Jihad: A Lawmaker's Summit
"Facing Jihad" is a summit of European lawmakers who are united in their shared belief that Islam today poses a serious threat to Western civilization. Originally scheduled for December 14-15 in Jerusalem, has been postponed until after the Israeli national elections in February.
The summit was conceived as a platform for bringing together parliamentarians from across Europe and Israel who are united against the threat of Islamic expansion. Full story: facingjihad.com
Comment: According to the Baptist Press, Nederlands parliamentarian, Geert Wilders, "will be joined by other European parliamentarians who are members of a new European political coalition that intends to address "the shared belief that Islamic expansion today poses a serious threat to Western civilization. . ."
While this is true, the question is "who invited them"?
Who is behind this UN directive of "multiculturalism" backed by Jewish President Sarkozy of France, fulfilling Messiah's prophecy of Matthew 24:37: "the conditions of Noah's day will repeat in the time of His 'parousia' Coming." Jesus invites us to review Genesis 6 where we learn what the UN euphemistically promotes as "multiculturalism" is in fact miscegenation between the descendants of Cain and the children of Adam, a repetition of the original sin. And "as it was in the days of Noah," the outcome is the genocide of Adam's race as the offspring of such misalliances will be in Cain's accursed race, not in the Book of Life, and irredeemable.
This calls Christians and all thinking persons of Adam's race to consider who is behind this repetition of the original sin which so grieved the Lord that He smote earth with a curse in the form of the Great Flood that annihilated all humanity that did not board the Ark. Whoever these sinners are, they do not worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel.
According to Geert Wilders, "This conference will be the start of an Alliance of European patriots. This Alliance will serve as the backbone for all organizations and political parties that oppose jihad and Islamization. For this Alliance I seek your support".
It seems strange that the Baptist Press should be concerned about Islam. Do they also deny the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel? Abraham was a vindicated prophet of God, who prophesied that the sons of Ishmael would never agree among one another (and no wonder since 'the City of London' conquered and set one against the other). The prophets Daniel and Jesus prophesied the greatest enemy of both Christians and blood Israelites (not Jews) is Rome which will rule to the consummation of life on earth; they foretold Rome will rule Lucifer's totalitarian one world government and make an alliance with the Jews (not Israelites) to refinance the US dollar which will fail when Los Angeles sinks at the close of the Gentile dispensation. Daniel and Jesus also foretold that Rome, apostate (once) Protestant churches and Jews would martyr the 144,000 elect Israelites; that Rome will abrogate her agreement, and in retaliation the Jews will ally with Russia and blast both Vatican City State and the USA from the face of the earth, initiating Armageddon.
It seems strange that any professing Christian or so-called Christian Church should consider entering an alliance against Islam with any Jewish organization when the Talmud, their lewd holy book, denounces Israel's Messiah in such blasphemous terms, and has Him in Hades boiling in excrement, decrees the best of the Gentiles should be killed (Kiddushin 66c; Soferim 15, Rule 10), and that Gentiles are animals on two legs God created in human form to serve the Jews (Yebamoth 98a)! Clearly the Baptist Press does not believe Amos 3:3 or II Corinthians 6:14.
"Judeo-Christian" is an oxymoron. Judaism is Pharisaism which Jesus said "makes the Word of God of no effect," it is the antithesis of Moses and the prophets and absolutely hostile toward Christianity, while the Bible, Jewish encyclopedias and historians confirm Jews are generally unrelated to Abraham, Isaac and Israel, and the sworn enemy of Israelites.
On the other hand, Muslims revere and respect Jesus Christ and look for His second physical return. Individual Muslims are innocent pawns used as ammunition by a third party without their knowledge in a Hegelian trap to divide and conquer the world. Geert Wilders' "Alliance of European patriots" is looking at the symptom and ignoring the cause of the problem.
Holocaust Remembrance: What's behind the Campaign?
Paula Hyman, a professor of modern Jewish history at Yale University, has observed: "With regard to Israel, the Holocaust may be used to forestall political criticism and suppress debate; it reinforces the sense of Jews as an eternally beleaguered people who can rely for their defense only upon themselves. The invocation of the suffering endured by the Jews under the Nazis often takes the place of rational argument, and is expected to convince doubters of the legitimacy of current Israeli government policy."
This view is echoed by another Jewish scholar, Tony Judt, who is director of the Remarque Institute at New York University:
"The Shoah [Hebrew term for Holocaust] is frequently exploited in America and Israel to deflect and forbid any criticism of Israel. Indeed, the Holocaust of Europe's Jews is nowadays exploited thrice over: It gives American Jews in particular a unique, retrospective 'victim identity'; it allows Israel to trump any other nation's sufferings (and justify its own excesses) with the claim that the Jewish catastrophe was unique and incomparable; and (in contradiction to the first two) it is adduced as an all-purpose metaphor for evilanywhere, everywhere and alwaysand taught to schoolchildren all over America and Europe without any reference to context or cause. This modern instrumentalization of the Holocaust for political advantage is ethically disreputable and politically imprudent. . ."
Non-Jewish victims of genocide, oppression and war do not merit the same consideration as do Jewish victims of the Holocaust. There are no comparable museums, memorials or solemn ceremonies to commemorate, for example, the vastly greater number of victims of Soviet and Chinese [Judaeo-]Communism.
As historians acknowledge, the non-Jewish victims of Soviet Russian dictator Joseph Stalin greatly outnumber the Jews who perished as a result of Hitler's policies. Robert Conquest, a prominent scholar of twentieth century Russian history, estimates the number of those who lost their lives as a consequence of Stalin's policies as "no fewer than 20 million." Authoritative estimates of the number of Chinese who perished as victims of killings, repression, starvation and forced labor under the Communist regime of Mao Zedong range from about 30 million to more than 60 million. . . .

We are deeply saddened and distressed that we, along with many others, have been the victims of what may be one of the largest investment frauds in history. We are writing to inform you that the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity had $15.2 million under management with Bernard Madoff Investment Securities. This represented substantially all of the Foundation's assets.
The values we stand for are more needed than ever. We want to assure you that the Foundation remains committed to carrying on the lifelong work of our founder, Elie Wiesel. We shall not be deterred from our mission to combat indifference, intolerance, and injustice around the world.
At this difficult time, the Foundation wishes to express its profound gratitude for all your support.
The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity Full story: eliewieselfoundation.org
Comment: This champion of humanity believes: "Every Jew, somewhere in his being, should set apart a zone of hatehealthy, virile hatefor what the German personifies and for what persists in the German. To do otherwise would be a betrayal of the dead." And concerning Babi Yar, Elie Wiesel stated: "Eyewitnesses say that for months after the killings the ground continued to spurt geysers of blood." Perhaps Madoff was a mensch after all. ihr.org codoh.com
Sources say that the wealth from Madoff's scam has been fully transferred to Israel and that "most if not all of the clients [including the Elie Wiesel Foundation] have been made aware" that their money is available to them in Israel and that it was felt that this was a necessary measure in protecting certain high level clients in the face of a collapse of the USA.
A European bank executive has said early this morning that the Banks involved in Madoff's fund were exposed through loads and leveraging and that these loans will be repaid in full from Israel. All of the charities involved have Israeli offices, so they also are of an understanding that their money is now available there . . . rense.com
YouTube Partners with MOSSAD ADL
December 12, 2008 It seems that the days of using YouTube as #1 media to distribute documentaries, videos and presentations about the truth of Israel and Zionism and their horrific war-crimes history and terrorism profile, has come to an END. Yesterday, it was announced that YouTube officially connected to the infamous ADL as partner to "Fight Against Hate". . . YouTube now has on-board one of the US's domestic branches of Israel's intelligence service, the Mossad. The ADL, the Mossad's most "professional" organization whose "speciality is spreading hate," are recruited as professionals in the just struggle of "fighting against hate "?! . .
Knowing all the above facts and knowing what ADL stands for makes one 'feel sick to one's stomach'. It means that hundreds of millions of Americans and others around the world are now going to be officially brainwashed by the Mossad and under censorship for everything they say, upload, document and view on YouTube . . .

The Rockefeller Plan
December 15, 2008 Economic integration will ultimately be a global synthesis of Western Capitalism and Eastern Communism into a World Socialist Government, and President-elect Barack Obama is the Power Elite's choice to lead Americans into a Socialist future with his campaign emphasis on "spreading the wealth around." It will be as Edward Bellamy related in his 1888 novel "Looking Backward, 2000-1887," wherein he projected that around 2000AD Americans would come to allow their economy to be managed by a (Socialist) "Great Trust" rather than maintain a free enterprise Capitalist system.
What usually compels people and nations to accept what they otherwise would not is some sort of crisis like the current international economic one. Relevant to this, Gideon Rachman in "And Now For A World Government" (Financial Times, December 8, 2008) writes: "For the first time in my life, I think the formation of some sort of world government is plausible, (and) would involve much more than cooperation between nations. It would be an entity with state-like characteristics, backed by a body of laws." He then quotes Australian historian Geoffrey Blainey as writing that "for the first time in human history, world government of some sort is now possible," and Rachman assesses that "the financial crisis and climate change are pushing national governments toward global solutions, even in countries such as China and the US that are traditionally fierce guardians of national sovereignty". . .

Digital TV: Mind Control by the Sound of Silence
December 15, 2008 Why is the government so anxious to help American citizens experience a clearer and more highly defined television picture? Does that make sense to you? Since when is the government so concerned about the visual quality of our televised entertainment that Congress would pass an undebated statutory proclamation which mandated that the HD conversion take place on Feb. 17, 2009 and then subsidize about 90% of the associated cost? I'm only guessing, but if there are 200 million "regular" televisions in America to be converted into HD, then that $40 in government subsidy per TV × 200,000,000 = $8 billion. Why is the government so anxious to spend 8 billion dollars on her citizens to improve the clarity of a TV picture? Or is the recently touted "additional bandwidth" cover story that supposedly is to be gained with the HD technology the only and genuine reason for spending so much taxpayer dollars on HD conversion?

CALEA, a controversial law enacted by Congress requires the Digital TV telecommunications industry to design its systems in compliance with FBI technical requirements to facilitate electronic surveillance. This violates the 4th Amendment. This new technology will have the propensity to be misused by government entities for eavesdropping and wiretapping. It can also be misused by fascists hell bent on socially engineering people into being used to the police state and to highly regulate information regarding, terrorism, plague, or natural disaster.

Comment: This article explains why the real story behind the mass Iraqi surrenders was censored so completely from the American people. It also corroborates the late Joe Vialls' exposition on the genocide in Rwanda where the technology was first tested on human guinea pigs. Is this why existing analog radio and TV is being shut down and compulsorily replaced by HD technology? And does this explain the aim of global Chemtrail experimentation?
Brother Branham said, "We rent from a woman that has the television in her house. I never intend to have one in my house. No, sir. I don't want that thing in my house. I'd blow it out with my shotgun. I don't want nothing to do with that evil thing. No, sir".
The coming Showdown: Zionism/Corporatism vs. Socialism/Communism; Where's Western Civilization?
By Chris Moore
The Christianity of Western civilization has for decades been on the defensive against the Left, and against modern organized Jewry, which have joined together to undermine its moral authority and wage a war of attrition.
Why should an explicitly Christian West have to be on the defensive, in its own expansive territory that it civilized and transformed into what we now know as "the free world" via a Christian manifestation called Western civilization, against modern organized Jewry and the Left? What have they ever done that's comparably liberating or contributory to the plight of humanity? All they've brought us is the terror of the French Revolution, Communism, Socialism, Zionism and Neo-conservatism. Any "liberty" they have attained on behalf of Western humanity has proven infinitely inferior to that asserted by the Christian American Founders, has proven transitory, ephemeral, and quickly regressive into statist authoritarianism and tyranny. Yet, as modern organized Jewry and Leftists would portray it, they are the Western guardians of justice and equality against "intolerant" Christianity.
Why does their false narrative hold purchase? Because they both, together and in partnership, leveraged the Holocaust to the maximum, and successfully portrayed it as a Christian enterprise (when in fact Nazism, like Bolshevism, was an explicitly post-Christian formulation with an atheistic, post-Christian moral compass), and used it as a battering ram against Western Christian values. Why haven't Christians leveraged the Communist holocaust, perpetrated against them in Soviet bloc countries by the Leftists and Jewish Bolsheviks, against modern organized Jewry and the Left in even a remotely comparable way? Probably out of good taste, Christian nobility and overconfidence. This was a tactical mistake.
The entirety of left-liberalism's and modern organized Jewry's "moral authority" is a farce, yet they have used it to systematically chip away at the Christian foundation of the West, until it has now been reduced to near rubble. They've done this in order to replace it with, respectively, Communism/Socialism or Zionism/Corporatism, the latter coalition of which has only emerged since modern organized Jewry's ascension in America, but which probably was an inevitable alliance given the notorious and enduring money greed of both.
I note with pleasure, however, that the Communist-Zionist alliance is finally coming to an end, now that both are confident that Western civilization is safely on the wane, and Zionism has grown more comfortable showing its true face and challenging its estranged former partner. They remain alike and like-minded, in many ways (intellectually disingenuous, morally ruthless, materialistic and atheistic) but in terms of professed ideology, their differences can no longer be papered over, and each realizes that it's nearing time for a showdown with the other.
I fear many anti-Zionists today are well on their way to making the morally fatal error of siding with the Socialists/Communists instead of with the values of Western civilization, which is somewhat understandable given Western Christendom's absence of fight lately, and the co-opting of a large segment of (apostate) "Christians" by Zionism. But that's really no excuse. Socialism/Communism is in no way more enlightened or moral than Zionism; the only difference is that its disingenuous "progressive" rhetoric is more believable than Zionism's due to the latter's advocacy of institutional racism in Israel, and the former's inherent appeal to a larger audience of reprobates.
Regardless, whether Zionism/Corporatism or Socialism/Communism prevails, either will take us to the exact same place: hell on earth, as we have seen both historically and contemporarily. And where does Western (Christian) civilization lead? Well, we know that, too: to freedom and prosperity.
It's time for the values of Western civilization as expressed to through Christendom to get back in the gamebefore it's too late and the wicked inherit, or rather take by swindle, the entire free world.
Comment: According to Daniel and Revelation as revealed by God's prophet William Branham, false "Christendom's absence of fight" will be reversed. Following the close of the Gentile dispensation, marked by the sinking of Los Angeles and crash of the US dollar, the cleaving of the mount of Olives and a successful Russian invasion of mainland USA, the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church will activate their alliance of world religions restoring peace and establishing Lucifer's totalitarian one world government, backed by US military force. Rome in union with political Zionism against Judaeo-Communism will refinance the dollar with gold backing, but after three and a half years she will abrogate the relationship; the Zionists will unite with their Judaeo-Communist fellow-travelers, and wipe Vatican City State and the United States from the face of the earth. This will lead to Armageddon, terminating the "Jewish Century" with the consummation of life on earth.
The Consummation of Life on Earth
Daniel 9:27, "[The ruler of Rome] will covenant with many [Israelites] for one week [of seven years]. In the midst of the week the pope will cause the sacrifice and oblation [that have been restored in a new temple] to cease, and her own idolatrous abominations will desolate Jerusalem unto the consummation of life [on Earth] when the decreed end will be poured out upon the Desolater".
Revelation 20:1-7, "Then I saw an angel descending from heaven, with the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He seized the dragon, that old serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, and cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut it up, and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years are completed. After that he must be loosed a little while."
"Then I saw thrones occupied by those to whom judgment was committed. I also saw the souls of those [Christians] who [during the Gentile dispensation] had been beheaded for their testimony to Jesus, and for the Word of God, and who had not worshipped the beast or its image, nor received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years."
"The rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he who shares in the first resurrection: on whom the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years."
"When the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison".
These Scriptures touch upon interrelated revelations like the fulfillment of Daniel's Seventieth Week, the consummation of life on Earth, the binding and loosing of Satan, the first and second resurrections, the millennium and the identity of its inhabitants, the White Throne Judgment, the chronology of Christ's 'parousia' Coming and Jesus' 'erchomai' return. However when it comes to apprehending Apocalyptic prophecy theologians are divided into three main groups:
The Preterists hold that almost the sum of the prophecies contained in the Book of Revelation were fulfilled with the destruction of Jerusalem in AD70 and the fall of heathen Rome in 313 when Constantine granted freedom of worship by the edict of Nantes.
The Historical Interpreters or Continuists hold that the Apocalyptic prophecies predict the progressive history of the Church from the time of John the divine to the end of the world, each Seal being succeeded by its corresponding Trumpet and the Trumpet by its corresponding Vial.
The Futurists consider almost the whole as yet future, and to be fulfilled immediately before Christ's second Coming or physical return.
The Preterist theory was not held by any of the early Fathers, and is only held now by Rationalists, who limit John's vision to things within his own horizonpagan Rome's persecutions of Christians, and consequently its anticipated destruction. This would place Preterists at odds with prophecy concerning the redemption of the elect Israelites in Daniel's Seventieth Week. These men measure their intellectual strength against the 'apokalupsis' or unveiling of Jesus Christ and the mind of God, coming short on revelation from Above in the sovereign timing of our Lord God.
Deuteronomy 29:29, "The secret things belong to the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children for ever . . ."
Christ referred to the Seven Seals and Seven Trumpets in His discourse on the Mount of Olives (Matthew 24:4-31). Jesus Christ is the mystery of God revealed "at the time of the end" and not before (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:4). The Seals plainly reveal Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to His Bride after the close of the Laodicean Church Age (Revelation 4; 5; 8:1; 10:1-7; I Corinthians 13:10), as do the Vials (Revelation 16:13-16); the Trumpets reveal His 'parousia' Coming to Israel in the great and dreadful day of the Lord (Revelation 11:15-19). All three run parallel as do the Church Ages which are the antitype of Israel's Pentecostal Feast under the first Fourth Seals (Revelation 1-3; 6:1-8; Leviticus 23:9-22). Their common objective is the revelation of the fullness of Christ to His end-time Bride, to the 144,000 elect Israelites three and a half years after the close of the Gentile dispensation, and finally to distinguish the foolish virgin from the false church as Jesus explained in Revelation 1:7: "Behold, He comes with clouds;
and every eye [of Christ's end-time Bride] shall see Him [by Spiritual discernment of Scripture through "the Voice of the seventh angel" Revelation 10:7],
- and also they who pierced Him: [the nation of 144,000 elect Israelites]
and all kindreds of the earth [the foolish virgin and other non-elect of Adam's race whose names remain in the Book of Life and who will surrender their lives as martyrs for His Name] shall wail because of Him".
The Futurist school is open to the great objection that it would leave Christ's Church unprovided with prophetical guidance or support under her fiery trials for 1,900 years when God has said, "Surely He will do nothing, without first revealing His secret to His servants the prophets" (Amos 3:7), and Jesus promised He would send us "prophets, and wise men, and scribes" (Matthew 23:34). Israel had a succession of prophets who guided them with the Light of revelation: what their prophets were to them, the Apocalyptic Scriptures are to us. God sent us seven "angels" whose ministries have fulfilled the prophecies of Revelation 2 and 3, and He has vindicated the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6, Matthew 17:11 and Revelation 10:7, whose ministry restored the apostolic faith, finished the mystery of God and introduced the second or 'parousia' Coming of Christ, the fullness of the Word, to incarnate His end-time Bride and bring her into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.
Preterists and Futurists overlook Revelation 1:1-3, which states that this Book is the revelation, apokalupsis or unveiling of Jesus Christ, that it is a "prophecy," and that the Word of God comes only to a prophet, not to theologians (Deuteronomy 18:15-22 and II Peter 1:21). Daniel 12:4, 9, I Corinthians 13:10, Ephesians 1 and Revelation 10:4 inform us that the Book of Revelation is sealed to the end of the Seven Church Ages of PART-Word and mediation, at which time Christ would open the Seven Seals and reveal their mystery through the "angel" to the Seventh Church Age, William Branham, who was the prophet ordained "finish the mystery of God." These two groups are quite obviously in error.
The Historicist view of the Book of Revelation is vindicated when studied through THUS SAITH THE LORD of God's prophet (singular), not through the intellectual guesswork of theologians. We must identify this covenant prophet promised to our day and confirm his ministry of "the restitution of all things" in our own Bible, without which we will "be destroyed from among the elect," or cast as foolish virgin into the tribulation (Malachi 4:6; Matthew 25:10-13; Revelation 22:18-19).
Human systematizing of Scripture contradicts revelation from Above, creating confusion because theologians possess an imperfect understanding of Christ's second Coming and the righteousness of saints who are at one with Him and the Father in whom there is no sin (Romans 8:33b; Revelation 19:8; John 17:20-23). So we shall bypass the myriad boxes defined by theologians such as Arianism, Appollinarianism, Docetism, Gnosticism, Monarchianism, Patripassianism, Sabellianism, Jesus Only, and Trinitarianism, in which they isolate error or inconvenient truth; and terms of derision such as Baptist, Methodist, Pentecostal, Fundamental, Branhamite, Islamist, politically incorrect or anti-Semitic, by means of which the establishment of the day seeks to ridicule and ostracize those with whom it disagrees, but we should consider three more hypotheses that divide theologians when it comes to apprehending Apocalyptic prophecy:
Pre-Millennialism maintains that Christ will personally appear on earth for the purpose of establishing his kingdom at the beginning of the Millennium (Revelation 20:1-6). It describes Christ's coming to the Earth and subsequent reign at the end of an apocalyptic period of tribulation, "the time of Jacob's trouble." It views this future age as a time of fulfillment for the prophetic hope of God's people as given in the Old Testament and does not include the elect in the White Throne Judgment that is to follow the general resurrection (Matthew 25:31-46; Revelation 20:7-15).
Post-Millennial or Concrete eschatology theorists maintain the millennium will precede Jesus' physical return. Most see the thousand years more as a figurative term for a long period of time, although some postmillennialists hold to a literal millennium of 1,000 years. Postmillennialism also teaches that the forces of Satan will gradually be defeated by the expansion of the Kingdom of God throughout history up until the second 'erchomai' Coming of Christ. Many Post-Millennialists also adopt some form of Preterism, which holds that many of the end times prophecies in the Bible have already been fulfilled.
Amillennialism denies a future, thousand-year, physical reign of Jesus Christ on the earth. This view holds that the number of years in Revelation 20:4 is symbolic and not literal; that the millennium has already begun and is identical with the Church Ages (or more rarely, that it ended with the destruction of Jerusalem in AD70 as in Preterism); that while Christ's reign during the millennium is Spiritual in nature, and at the end of the Church Ages, Christ will return in final judgment and establish permanent physical reign.
The Post-Millennial view lacks the understanding of Christ's secret, sudden unseen 'parousia' Coming and departure with His Bride "as a thief in the night" They do not realize that His 'parousia' Coming is to incarnate His end-time Bride for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation and is not the physical return of the glorified Man. Post-Millennialists have overlooked, or improperly defined the antitypes of Israel's Pentecostal feast and ignored the holy convocation of the fiftieth day in which we now live following the close of the last Church Age with the revelation of the Seven Seals in 1963. For the revelation of the Seals brought Christ back to Earth in W_O_R_D form. I Corinthians 13:10, "When that which is perfect has comeChrist the fullness of the WordPART-Word and Christ's mediation for ignorance of the fullness will be done away."
Brother Branham explained how God redeems earth by the same PROCESS by which He is redeeming His people. The same Spirit that regenerates the soul of His elect now (Romans 8:11), and his body after the dispensation change (I Corinthians 15:51-53) will regenerate his home after the Millennium (Psalm 104:30; Revelation 21:1). Earth once baptized with water shall be baptized with natural and Spiritual fire, regenerating earth and nature (II Peter 3:7-13). As each sabbatical year was Israel's year of remission, of earth's six thousands since the creation and Fall of man, its seventh is her sabbath in the antitype of Israel's feast of Tabernacles (Leviticus 23:33-39). Following six thousand years in which man has laboured against sin the Millennium will be the restoration of rest in a day of 1,000 years Adam and Eve failed to complete through the ingress of sin and death. It will be the uninterrupted honeymoon of the Last Adam with His Eve, the elect Church, attended by the Old Testament saints and the 144,000 elect Israelites. Christ will most definitely be present throughout the Millennium for He will return with the saints of all ages and tread down on the ashes of the wicked (Malachi 4:1-3). After the Millennium the eighth day will take us into Eternity in a renewed heaven and earth.
The forces of Satan cannot be defeated by the numerical expansion of the Kingdom Jesus called a "little flock," a finite election in Adam's race called out from the mass of humanity which stems primarily from Cain's race that was never written in the Book of Life; as such they have no kinsman Redeemer and are irredeemable. Moreover Daniel 2:43-45 tells us the "enmity" God has placed between the seed of Adam and the seed of the Serpent will prevent them from cleaving together and that the Stone Kingdom of God cut out of the mountain by His spoken Word, will consume the kingdoms of this world as confirmed by Revelation 11:15 and 19:11-21. Moreover, the Gentile denominations end in apostasy after the pattern of the Hebrew denominations, and life on earth will be destroyed in the consummation prior to the Millennium (Daniel 9:27; Matthew 3:12; 13:36-43; Romans 11:32; II Thessalonians 2:1-12).
Post-Millennial people among others believe on the basis of Scriptures such as Isaiah 11:1-9; 65:23 and Zechariah 14:16-19 that sinners will live in the Millennium. However, it should be pointed out that the binding and sealing of Satan "brings in everlasting righteousness" (Daniel 9:24) for the duration. And "They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea" (Isaiah 11:9; Habakkuk 2:14). So there will be neither sin nor sinners on earth during the Millennium. Satan, prince of demons (Matthew 9:34; 12:24), author of evil, calumniator, false accuser, slanderer, and persecutor of good men, has estranged mankind from God, enticed them to sin and afflicted them with diseases by means of demons who take possession of their bodies at his bidding, is bound, cast into the bottomless pit (so-called because it has no foundation in God's eternal Word), and shut up for a thousand years. Satan and his demons only have the power men allow, and as they can neither influence nor harm the glorified saints they are bound by reason of the fact his subjects are all in the grave. "The dead will not live again until the thousand years are complete," then the general resurrection will loose Satan and his demons, but there can be no sinners in the Millennium.
The bottomless pit is the abyss of the fifth dimension where the souls of sinners and the unconverted are imprisoned pending the general resurrection and White Throne Judgment prior to being granted into salvation or cast into hell, (Gk.) Tartarus or (Heb.) Gehenna which will then be ready to receive its guests. There are seven dimensions; the natural senses of our body and spirit make contact with only three: length, breadth, and time, while we, our soul can contact the fourth dimension which is the channel of revelation, spiritual dreams, inspirations and anointings. Here we commune with the spirit world: God, or Satan and his angels.
The fifth dimension is where the sinner and the unbeliever go when their time on earth is finished, and is connected with the abyss. The sixth dimension is where the Christian goes when he dies, and God is in the seventh dimension.
Amillennialism has been widely held in the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Churches as well as in the Roman Catholic Church, which generally follows Augustine on this point. Amillennialism claims the Kingdom of God will not be physically established on earth throughout the "millennium," but rather:
- that Jesus is presently reigning from heaven, seated at the right hand of God the Father,
- that Jesus also is and will remain with the church until the end of the world, as he promised at the Ascension,
- that at Pentecost, the millennium began, as is shown by Peter using the prophecies of Joel, about the coming of the kingdom, to explain what was happening,
- and that, therefore the church and its spread of the good news is Christ's kingdom.
This false dogma raised up many fanatics at the end of the first "millennium" AD and on numerous presumed anniversaries thereafter. But since Rome is well into her second millennium, there must be some error in St. Peter's chair. Amillennialism also teaches that the binding of Satan described in Revelation 20 has already occurred, and he is bound from "deceiving the nations" by preventing the spread of the Gospel. This is the only binding he will suffer in history: the forces of Satan will not be gradually pushed back by the Kingdom of God as history progresses but will remain just as active as always up until the second Coming of Christ, and therefore good and evil will remain mixed in strength throughout history and even in the church, according to the Amillennial understanding of the Parable of the Wheat and Tares.
The Judaeo-Roman Catholic church organized in AD325 at the Hegelian dialectic of the First Nicaea Council with the specific intent of preventing the spread and correct teaching of the Gospel. If the binding of Revelation 20 has already occurred, Satan is cast out of heaven, has incarnate in the pope, and is now in a lake of Fire, while present day Judaeo-Catholics, Protestants, and all the non-elect have been slain, as Jesus foretold in Revelation 19:20-21. Matthew 13:36-43 speaks of Christ's 'parousia' Coming in the office of Son of man in this present holy convocation of the fiftieth day that commenced with the revelation of the Seven Seals at the conclusion of the Laodicean Church Age in March 1963 that brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form. Rome knows nothing of Christ's unseen Coming to call His end-time Bride into the unity of the faith in the secret, sudden threefold PROCESS of the rapture described in I Thessalonians 4:16. The fullness of the sevenfold Spirit of God that anointed the Church Age Messengers is imparted by the "shout" of Brother Branham's Message to separate the wheat from the tares by "that which is perfect" (Revelation 18:4). As "the harvest is the end of the world" or dispensations, unbeknownst to the world church system, the PROCESS called the rapture began 45 years ago. Throughout this time the Holy Spirit has been gathering the wheat into His barn, and binding the unbelieving tares of Catholicism, Protestantism, Zionism, Communism and every other 'ism' in Ecumenical, Charismatic, World Council of Churches and United Nations groups such as Local Agenda 21, "2020" scams for sustainability, Climate Change, forest protection, one world currency bundles, ready for burning at the consummation of life prior to the Millennium.
The United Nations is Lucifer's totalitarian one world government in disguise. It was set up by the Council of Foreign Relations of 'the City of London' that preselects all United States presidents. The UN celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2008 with this Luciferian 666 logo declaring "A Time for Renewal," or NWO. It, too, is uniting the world for the second crucifixion of the Son of God and Satan's incarnation as president of the NWO. Brother Branham said, "I believe one of these glorious days when the united confederation of churches goes together and the new pope is brought out of the United States and put over there [in Jerusalem] according to prophecy, that they'll form an image to the beast, and I tell you, the true Church will be drove together. . . And agnostics and shallow-minded will be cast to one side; they'll go right on into the confederation of churches" (Acts of the Holy Spirit, 12:87).
"The second Coming of Christ" to which Rome and other Amillennialists refer is not the 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man described in Matthew 13, but the second physical or 'erchomai' Coming of the glorified Jesus in the office of Son of David, returning with His glorified Bride and the glorified saints of all Ages for the Millennium they do not believe inafter the consummation of life on earth. We are told by Amillennialists who know, that the notion of a thousand years of peace is found only in Revelation. Here are some of the references in your Bible respecting this sabbath following the consummation of life and prior to the general resurrection and White Throne Judgment: Genesis 49:10; Isaiah 2:2-4; 4:3; 9:7; 11:1-9; 24:21-22; 35; 61:4-11; 65:21-25; Jeremiah 3:16-17; Ezekiel 37:21-28; 40-48; Hosea 2:18; Micah 4:8; Zechariah 14:16-21; Acts 1:6-8; Colossians 3:4; Hebrews 4:9; I John 3:2, and of course the Old Testament Scriptures relating to the feast of Tabernacles.
The Amillennialists, like the Post-Millennialists, have no understanding of the Spiritual antitype of Israel's natural feasts, and have not recognized the nine dispensations within the Gentile dispensation, this present holy convocation and Christ's 'parousia' Coming. Rome cannot countenance Spiritual revelation from Above (Matthew 16:13-19) because would demolish her world religious system which is from the bottomless pit, built upon sand without foundation in the Word of God.
The restoration of the kingdom to Israel will Jesus Christ's Millennial in the office of Son of David with the Bride of all Ages as His Queen (Daniel 2:44; 7:9-14; Acts 1:6). In Matthew 19:28, "Jesus assured His disciples, that in the regeneration [or Millennium] when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of His glory, you will sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel." His promise to the overcomers of the Laodicean Church Age was: "I will grant you to sit with Me in My throne [on earth in the Millennium], even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne [in heaven]." Those who suffer for Him and do not serve the world system "shall also reign with Him" (II Timothy 2:12; Matthew 20:22-23; Mark 8:34-38) following the first resurrection of which Paul said, "If by any means I might attain to the 'out-resurrection' from among the dead" (Philippians 3:10-11). Paul's prayer was not that he would be resurrected, for all of the non-elect dead will be raised in the general or second resurrection, but that he would have part in the first resurrection and enter the glorious Millennium.
Jesus said: "Those who are accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the [out] resurrection from the dead . . . cannot die any more: for they are as eternal as their theophany; and are the children of God, being the children of the [first] resurrection" (Luke 20:35-36), and will participate in the Millennium.
Bengel said, "When Christianity became a worldly power under Constantine [at the organization of the Judaeo-Roman Universal church in AD325], the future hope was weakened by joy over present success." It was at the First Nicaea Council that the Church showed herself a harlot by committing adultery with the Babylonian teachings of Rome and the Talmud against her espoused Husband the Word.
The earthquake at the opening of the Sixth Seal (Revelation 6:12) chronologically connects this Seal with Israel's Seventh Trumpet (Revelation 11:15) and the Seventh Vial of God's wrath (Revelation 16:17-18). When this has been poured out into the air "a loud Voice from the sanctuary of the heavenly temple" will break "the silence in heaven the space of about half an hour, exclaiming: It is done!" Then the first resurrection can at last begin (Revelation 15:1, 8).
Subsequently, after seven prophetic years of 360 days the Lord "will thoroughly purge His threshing-floor, and gather His wheat into the garner; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire" in the consummation of life on earth.
