How Israel wages Game Theory Warfare
August 20, 2009 In 2005, the Nobel Prize in Economic Science was awarded to Israeli mathematician and game theory specialist Robert J. Aumann, co-founder of the Center for Rationality at Hebrew University. . . "The entire school of thought that we have developed here in Israel" has turned "Israel into the leading authority in this field." Israeli strategists rely on game theory models to ensure the intended response to staged provocations and manipulated crises. With the use of game theory algorithms, those responses become predictable, even foreseeable within an acceptable range of probabilities. The waging of war "by way of deception" is now a mathematical discipline.
Such "probabilistic" war planning enables Tel Aviv to deploy serial provocations and well-timed crises as a force multiplier to project Israeli influence worldwide. For a skilled agent provocateur, the target can be a person, a company, an economy, a legislature, a nation or an entire culturesuch as Islam. With a well-modeled provocation, the anticipated reaction can even become a powerful weapon in the Israeli arsenal . . .
Israeli behavior is often immoral and unjust but that does not mean it is irrational. For Colonial Zionists committed to the pursuit of an expansionist agenda, even murderous provocations are rational because the response can be mathematically modeled, ensuring the results are reasonably foreseeable. That alone is sufficient for a people who, as God's chosen, consider it their right to operate above the rule of law. Full story: intifada-palestine.com
WHO admits to releasing Pandemic Virus via 'Mock-Up' Vaccines
On June 11 the World Health Organization (WHO) raised its swine flu pandemic alert from a 5 to a 6. Phase 6 is the highest level alert, and reflects the speed with which a virus is spreading . . . not its severity. This classification also allows for a vaccine to qualify for a "fast-track" procedure for licensing and approval, and this process is now ongoing for the swine flu vaccine. What you may not know, however, is that WHO, together with health officials, regulatory authorities and vaccine manufacturers, have been working since 2007long before this new "threat" of swine flu emergedto "explore a broad range of issues surrounding the regulatory approval of pandemic vaccines."
According to the WHO website: "Ways were sought to shorten the time between the emergence of a pandemic virus and the availability of safe and effective vaccines." One such method used in Europe is to conduct advance studies using a "mock-up" vaccine that contains an active ingredient for an influenza virus that has not circulated recently in human populations. When testing these mock-up vaccines, it is very possible to release the novel influenza virus into the population, as its purpose is to "mimic the novelty of a pandemic virus" and "greatly expedite regulatory approval."
Government officials have other tricks up their sleeves to ensure these new, barely tested vaccines easily make it to market . . . Would You Want a Fast-Tracked Vaccine Injected Into Your Body? . . .

Afghan War's Blowback for India's Children?
August 27, 2009 Children born with abnormally enlarged or small heads, disproportionately short arms and legs, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and other complications, increasing instances of infertility among women, a spurt in cases of lung cancer and intestinal ulcer. Punjab, a state in India bordering Pakistan, has reason to be concerned about this scary picture emerging from surveys recently carried out in some of its areas. Not only Punjab, however. According to a section of the researchers particularly concerned with the cases of birth deformities, Punjab may be paying with the health of its people for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. . .

Comment: Revelation 6:8, "I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth." Principally, (once) Protestant USA, the image unto the beast of Papal Rome (Daniel 7:7; Revelation 13:11-18).
AF-PAK War and the Battle for Oil
August 19, 2009 WHEN ANNOUNCING HIS NEW AFGHANISTAN AND PAKISTAN POLICY on March 27, 2009, Obama vowed "to disrupt and dismantle" the Taliban in Pakistan and Afghanistan and to "prevent their return to either country in the future." But who are the Taliban? Any Afghan or Pakistani who resists the US-led occupation. . .
Harvard professor of International Affairs, Graham Allison, argues: "We must insure that developments in Afghanistan would not undermine Pakistanís assistance in eliminating al Qaeda and that Pakistanís arsenal of nuclear weapons would not fall into the hands of terrorists such as Osama bin Laden." (Sorry, Graham al Qaeda does NOT exist and Osama bin Laden has been dead for over four years). . .
IN A SECRET MEETING SEQUESTERED from the Jewish-controlled press, Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad and Pakistani President Ali Zardari signed a pipeline deal on May 24, 2009 during a summit in Tehran in which Afghan President Hamid Karzai participated. The two countries plan to connect their economies via exported Iranian gas flowing to Pakistan daily. Construction of the pipeline is due to start in September 2009. . . Full story: pakalert
Is there an Oil Shortage?
July 12, 2008 Perceptions of insufficient oil supply are also heightened by the recently resuscitated theory of the so-called Peak Oil, which maintains that world production of conventional oil will soon reachif it has not already reacheda maximum, or peak, and decline thereafter, with grave socio-economic consequences. However . . . OPEC President Chakib Khelil recently emphasized that there was no shortage of oil: "As far as fundamentals are concerned . . . right now we have more supply than demand". . .
The popular perception of the recently skyrocketing oil price is that there is an oil shortage in global energy markets. The perceived shortage is generally blamed on the Organization of Petroleum Exporting countries (OPEC) for "insufficient" production, or on countries like China and India for their increased demand for energy, or on both. . .
According to a number of energy experts, between 30-and 40-percent of the recent increases in the price of oil can be attributed to dollar depreciation. One of the simplest ways to calculate this is to compare the price per barrel of oil in dollars and euros over the last five years. "The widening gap between the two [dollar price vs. euro price] indicates that 35 percent of the increase in the price of oil could be attributed to currency [dollar] devaluation."
Stronger than the impact of dollar depreciation on the price of oil has been the impact of manipulative speculation: war and political instability have served as breeding grounds for hoarding and speculation in energy futures markets. . . "As much as 60% of todayís crude oil price is pure speculation driven by large trader banks and hedge funds. It has nothing to do with the convenient myths of Peak Oil. It has to do with control of oil and its price. . . . Since the advent of oil futures trading and the two major London and New York oil futures contracts, control of oil prices has left OPEC and gone to Wall Street. It is a classic case of the tail that wags the dog". . . Speculations now account for about 70% of all benchmark crude trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange, up from 37% in 2000."
Wall Street financial giants that created the Third World debt crisis in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the tech bubble in the 1990s, and the housing bubble in the 2000s are now hard at work creating the oil bubble. By purchasing large numbers of futures contracts, and thereby pushing up futures prices to even higher levels than current prices, speculators have provided a financial incentive for giant futures traders to buy even more oil and place it in storage. Unrestrained by an appalling lack of regulation. Full story: globalresearch.ca
In Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be Deliverance
Isaiah 59:20, "The Lord will come to Zion as her Redeemer, to those in Jacob who turn from transgression [in Daniel's Seventieth Week], says the Lord" (Isaiah 4:2-6; 62:1; Daniel 9:24; Joel 2:28-32; Romans 11:26).
After the elect Israelites are baptized into Christ, "I (. . . insert your name here . . .) looked, and saw the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him a hundred forty four thousand, having His Name and His Father's Name (John 5:43) written in their foreheads." The new-born Israelites (Revelation 12:17; 7:4-8; Zechariah 12:13 13:9) will harbour no Trinitarian delusions, understanding Jesus Messiah is Emmanuel, "God with us," manifest in virgin-born flesh as foretold by Isaiah 7:14 (Matthew 1:23; I Timothy 3:16; John 14:5-20), and that the Name (singular) of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost is LORD JESUS CHRIST, for Matthew 28:19=Luke 24:47= Acts 2:36-39=Deuteronomy 6:4.
God does not presently regard Israel as a nation and He cannot deal with it as a nation until after the close of the Gentile dispensation when the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob return from Muslim lands of the ancient Assyrian empire where they live "for fear of the Jews" of modern Israel. The peoples of Israel and Judah will return to the Homeland in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11; 27:13; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 39:27; Micah 5:3; Zechariah 10:8, Matthew 24:29-31). In the long-planned eruption of racial and religious hatred following the earthquake of Zechariah 14:4-5 that will demolish the Dome of the Rock and ignite the brief "hot stage" of World War III between political Islam and the political Zionists, Israelites will be forced to return to the land of their forefathers. Their emigration will be preceded by the mass exodus of non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews with dual citizenship repatriating to Russia and the homelands of their Khazar and Edomite kinfolk, whose history and geography have been excised from the record by impersonators who, having stolen Israel's identity and land, seek to steal back Esau's forsaken birthright. Israel will not be a nation in God's sight until the Israelites return to the land for their redemption (William Branham, Gabriel's Instructions to Daniel, p. 23:93, 115, 126, 133). After three and a half years the whole nation will be baptized into Christ in one night as the Edomites (i.e. Hittites and Canaanites) and subsequently the Khazar nation became Talmudic Jews overnight (Isaiah 66:8; Zechariah 3:9-10; 12:11; 13:1; Genesis 27:40; Deuteronomy 28:43-44; Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, xiii.9,1; xiii.25; Matthew 23:33-35), but by grace through faith.
Brother Branham said, "You know who Benjamin represents? This new bunch of real genuine Jews [he means Israelites, NOT Jews] that's gathering there now to make that 144,000, this race that's coming up. Not these Wall Street crooks, no, no, that's more cannon fodder. Them ain't Jews; them ain't Jews. The real Jews are these little Benjamins coming up from down yonder that never even heard the Word of Jesus Christ. They were the ones that wasn't this Wall Street crooked bunch (The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit to Daniel, p. 60:74; 121:150).
"And I heard a voice from heaven like the sound of many waters (the multitude of 144,000 Spirit-filled witnesses); and like the voice of a loud thunder (the Voice of God); and I heard the voice as of harpists playing on their harps." We will meet them again in Revelation 15:2-3 after their martyrdom. The harp was the national instrument of the Hebrews.
Ezekiel 43:2 describes the same vision signifying the return of "the glory of the God of Israel from the East"Israel's rising of the S_O_Nthe Shekinah glory of God's Presence that fills and restores "the tabernacle of David that has fallen, closing the breaches and setting it up" (Amos 9:11) as the Millennium Temple of 144,000 "lively stones" in the day they recognize Christ's 'parousia' Coming and anoint New JerusalemChrist and His Wifewith the joy of their salvation as we discovered in Newsletter 595 (Isaiah 60:1-2; 4:4). In Revelation 19:6 they cry "Hallelu-Jah," or "praise ye Jehovah" for He has taken vengeance on their enemy, the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church (Revelation 11:16 18:20). They have crowned Him King of kings and Lord of lords by their revelation, and the Word is returning from the Wedding feast to destroy the beast and the false prophet and their ancient enemy Esau/Edom in the consummation of life. Then Satan will be bound a thousand years until his subjects are raised for judgment in the general resurrection (Psalms 149:4-9; Revelation 19:11 20:6).
What joy will flood their hearts by the revelation that from the foundation of the world "they were raised up with Christ Jesus and seated with Him in heavenly places" (Ephesians 2:6). The voice of the elect Israelites is the "thunder" or Voice of God for their day testifying to the peace they have found in God's justice symbolized by the 144,000 "harpists" with the mind of God singing and harping in unison (I Corinthians 1:10; Titus 1:4).
"They sing a new song before the throne, and in the presence of the four living creatures, and of the elders: and no one was able to learn that song except the hundred and forty four thousand, who were redeemed from the earth. These are they who have not defiled themselves with women (churches); for they are Spiritual virgins to the Word. It is these who follow the Lamb (not church dogmas) whithersoever He goes. These were redeemed from mankind, the firstfruit unto God and the Lamb. No lie was ever found on their lips, for they are blameless" on the ground of the righteousness of Him alone in whom they trusted (Psalms 15:1-2; James 1:18).
This "new song" is the revelation of the redeemed 144,000, not the revelation of Christ's Wife, and although it is sung before the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures, it will be Israel's New Testament revelation by the feast of the Seven Trumpets which no other can learn because it will be sealed by their martyrdom as further developed in Revelation 15:3-4 when "they have gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name" by grace though faith and their mortal lives (Newsletter 595; Matthew 27:25; Revelation 6:11).
The 144,000 will "follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes"even unto martyrdom (Matthew 27:25; 24:13; Revelation 12:11) as they are His Wife's attendants typed by the eunuchs of an Eastern harem. Whereas Christ's virgin Bride was able to pass Life through the Body, "multiply and fill the earth" among whomsoever will receive the Message of the hour, the 144,000 were eunuchs unable to multiply as only 12,000 of each tribe are ordained to election in Daniel's Seventieth Week.
Verses 6 to 11 are in parenthesis and represent the spirit of the three "angels" whose Messages reformed the Judaeo-Roman Catholic system of false worship. Here they warn the foolish virgin of the impending judgment:
"And I saw another angel flying in mid-heaven, (the highest point in the heavens, which the sun occupies at noon, and where what is done can be seen and heard by all mankind), having the good news of the everlasting gospel to preach to those on earthto every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people. And he shouted in a loud voice, Revere God, and give Him glory; for the hour of His judgment has come: and worship Him who made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of water" (not Judaeo-Roman Catholic dogma). This angel with the "loud voice" was Martin Luther preaching justification by grace through faith, for we are absolutely dependent upon the Creator of all things, and this dependency is the basis of His judicial power.
"Another, a second angel followed, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, who gave all the nations to drink of the wine of the rage of her fornication." This is John Wesley who preached godliness and does not "shout with a loud voice." Rome's wine is her false religion, which is fornication with creed and dogma or idolatry against her espoused Husband, the Word. This intoxication with perverse passion inflames "all the nations" and is the angry seal of the fanaticism of Rome's lust of domineering intolerance (Revelation 17:1-4; 18:7).
"And another, a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any one worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark in his forehead, or on his hand, he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever: and they have no rest by day nor by night who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receives the mark of his name" (Genesis 19:28; Isaiah 34:10-17; Revelation 19:3).
The third angel was William Branham, whose "loud voice" to the seventh Church Age is the "shout" of I Thessalonians 4:16 which is the "midnight cry" of Matthew 25:6 warning all to "come out of Babylon and be filled with the Spirit that you do not partake of her sins and receive of her plagues" (Revelation 10:7; 13:10, 15-18; 18:4). Every individual who receives the mark of the beast, which is Rome's blasphemous Trinity doctrine, will drink of God's boiling indignation undiluted with grace and be mercilessly tormented in the presence of the saints (Psalm 11:6; 75:8; Revelation 14:10). "And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever" like the smoke or mystery Babylon (Revelation 19:3). Their torture will be the merciless suffering of slow burning, not pure combustion.
These men were the "angels" to the last three Church Ages. They ministered the reformation of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic system of false worship, exposing the "abominations and filthiness of her fornication" (Revelation 3:1-22; 17:4) and ultimately revealing the mysteries of the Seven Thunders that restored us to the apostolic faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God under the sound of Israel's Seventh Trumpet (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Romans 8:19; Revelation 10:7). Their Messages constitute the restored New Testament revelation with its finished mystery that places us above the judgment and physical death while condemning all who reject our testimony "concerning many peoples and nations and tongues and kings" (Revelation 10:8-11). The one recourse for the non-elect in preserving their place in the Book of Life and their salvation will be to suffer martyrdom by refusing to serve or receive the Trinity dogma of the beast, for God's grace will be exhausted when He turns to Israel from we Gentiles (Hebrews 12:16-17).
Brother Branham declared this final warning: "I am a fellowservant of Jesus with you and your brothers the prophets, and of those who keep the Logos of this Book: worship God. And he said to me, Seal not the Logos of the prophecy of this Book [which is the revelation of my Message]: for the time [of the first resurrection and manifestation of the Sons of God] is at hand [now that the Seals have been revealed and the mystery of God is finished]. And when that time comes, let the evildoer continue in his evil, and the filthy be filthy still: and the righteous continue in his righteousness: and the holy be holy still" (Revelation 22:9-12; Daniel 12:10). "Watch the third pull then. It'll be absolutely to the total lost, but it will be for the Bride and the Church" (Look Away to Jesus, p. 7:49). Like Israel, the world will have made the Word of God of no effect to them and you will be preaching to souls that are in prison (Matthew 15:6-9).
He went on to say, "Blessed is [Christ's Bride] who wash their robes (Revelation 7:14), that they may have the right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and the immoral, and murderers and idolaters, and everyone who loves to lie and does so" (Revelation 22:14-15, and 17-19 not quoted).
Acts 3:22-24, "Moses said, The Lord God will raise up a prophet from your brethren like me. Listen carefully to everything He will tell you." That Prophet was our Lord Jesus Christ who commanded us to listen to His Prophet William Branham, the Elijah of Matthew 17:11 (Malachi 4:5-6), the "angel" to the Seventh Church Age whose ministry revealed "Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today and forever" by the Messianic sign as He identified Himself to His elect before fire razed Sodom (Luke 17:28-30; Hebrews 4:12; Genesis 18). And in Revelation 11 (Zechariah 4; Malachi 4:4) He has commanded Israel to listen to the two prophets He will send in Daniel's Seventieth Week. "And it shall come to pass, that every soul, that does not hear that Prophet [Jesus Messiah, and pay heed to the prophets He will send and vindicate] (Matthew 23:34) will be utterly destroyed [cherem] from among the people. (Because "God will smite the earth with a curse," destroying all life Isaiah 11:4; Malachi 4:6; II Thessalonians 1:6-12; II Peter 3:4-11; Revelation 19:20-21). And all the prophets from Samuel (II Samuel 7:11-17) and those who came afterwards, also proclaimed these days".
To refuse the Message of God's vindicated prophets is to repudiate God's Covenant as the Gentile denominations did in their apostasy when they rejected Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming in Brother Branham's ministry by the revelation of the Seals (Revelation 3:17-20; 4 5; Hebrews 6:4-8; I Corinthians 13:10), and as the apostate Israelite denominations did when they rejected the Message of John the Baptist and Jesus Messiah's first Coming (Genesis 17:14; Numbers 9:13; Psalm 69:28). Hebrews 10:31, "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God".
"Here is the patient endurance of the [tribulation] saints: who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus [in the face of certain martyrdom]" (Revelation 6:11; 12:11; 13:10).
"I further heard a Voice from heaven saying, Write, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord henceforth: Yes, says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works follow with them." These are not dying "for" the Lord, but in positive fellowship IN the Lord. Philippians 3:9-10, "Being found in Him, not having their own righteousness, which is of the Law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: that they may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death." These are the 144,000 tribulation saints who "wait [or tarry] and attain to the 1,335 days and are blessed" (Daniel 12:12; Revelation 7:3). Their blessedness comes from the removal of the curse that came upon the nation when "all the people said, Messiah's Blood be on us and on our children" and repudiated God's Covenant thereby.
"It is not as though the Word of God had failed. For by no means do all who descend from Israel belong to Israel, neither are all children of Abraham because they are his offspring: but through Isaac shall your descendants be named. This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted as his descendants" (Romans 9:6-8; Galatians 3:29). This is confirmed by Isaiah 66:8 which applies to the 144,000 elect who, having "washed their robes" (Revelation 22:14), constitute "the nation born [of the promise] in one day." Their martyrdom will annul the curse (Romans 7:2-3; Galatians 3:13) and complete the ingathering of firstfruits unto the Lord, the choicest of the crop who are distinguished from the general harvest of the "saved" non-elect. Then they will rest from labouring against the curse of their apostate forefathers, against sin and against persecution for righteousness.
This why the Voice from heaven commanded Christ's end-time Bride: "Write!" Place it on the record forever: the curse Israel brought upon themselves is null and void. The debt is paid, and the nation, all 144,000 of them, being Bloodwashed and spotless before God, is discharged from any claims of the Adversary!
The vision of verses 1 to 5 continues after the parenthesis of verses 6 to 11 and the commentary of verses 12 and 13, revealing the parousia of Christ "executing judgment because He is the Son of man" (John 5:27). The foolish virgin and "all [non-elect] kindreds of the earth will wail because of Him," realizing they have missed the "rapture" and must surrender their lives in martyrdom or take the mark of the beast and serve Rome and its image (Matthew 26:64; Revelation 1:7). As in Revelation 19:12 the 144,000 have crowned Jesus Messiah King by their revelation and are resolved to martyrdom (Luke 22:42). This vision is not the physical return of Jesus as Son of David, which will not take place until the Millennium, but a general overview of the judgment scene marginally earlier than that of Daniel 7:13 also covering the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week to the consummation.
"And I (. . . insert your name here . . .) looked and saw a white cloud, and One seated on the cloud like the Son of man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to the One sitting upon the cloud, Send forth Your sickle, and reap: for the hour is come to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And the One sitting upon the cloud cast in His sickle upon the earth; and the earth was reaped".
Talk about a 'third pull!' The Logos (or spoken Word) of the three "angels" who warned of "the hour of His judgment" now executes it. Because "The Word [or sharp sword] that goes forth from My mouth shall not return to me void, but shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall prosper in what I have commissioned" (Isaiah 55:11; 49:2; Revelation 19:15).
Matthew 13:30, 39-41, "Let both the wheat and the tares grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, First gather together the tares and bind them in (political, religious, social and racial bundles for burning): but gather the wheat into My barn." You will notice the tares outshine the wheat in worldly glory and have their revivals first. "The enemy who sowed the tares is the Devil; the harvest is the end of the world (that will see Israel released from captivity under Judaeo-Roman Mystery Babylon within a lifespan from statehood, as the Israelites captive in ancient Babylon were released within their lifetimes Matthew 24:3, 32-34); and the reapers are the angels, (or seven Church Age messengers, the Logos of whose ministry is restored and made perfect in the Messages of Martin Luther, John Wesley and William Branham. Just as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so will it be at the end of this world. The Son of man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity" (Matthew 3:12).
Psalm 104:4, "God makes His messengers spirits and His ministers a flaming fire." As the messenger is one with his Message, the Logos or spoken Word of his Message will reap what it has sown by the Spirit.
As in verses 6-7 and 9-11, I believe the "angels" with the "loud voice" are the Spirit of the Messages of Martin Luther and William Branham, whereas the voice or Message of John Wesley was less intense. I am confident in this point because "God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to Paul's gospel" (Romans 2:16) by which these "angels" reformed the Judaeo-Roman Catholic system of false worship and restored the heart of His elect children back to the faith of their apostolic fathers (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7).
In verses 15-18 these "angels . . . come out of the Temple which is in heaven." This could not take place before Daniel's Seventieth Week, because "the [heavenly] Temple was filled with smoke from the glory and power of God [throughout the Gentile dispensation], and no one could enter until the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished" (Revelation 15:8). Those seven plagues were the curses of the Seven Vials of God's wrath poured out upon the nominal church in the ordeal or jealousy after the last elect predestinated to each Church Age was born-again. Its objective is to separate the foolish virgin who were justified by faith and sanctified but not born of the Word for their Age from the faithless harlots to the Word they claimed as their Husband. After "the seventh angel poured out his Vial into the air [or fourth dimension], there came a loud voice out of the Temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done" . . . all Seven Vials have been poured out (Revelation 16:17). Only then can the resurrection and translation of Christ's Bride begin, and the two Hebrew prophets be anointed for their ministry in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. The pouring out of the Seventh Vial will be coincidental with the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and the sounding of Israel's Seventh Trumpet.
The initial reaping of verses 14-16 will be the fulfillment of Matthew 3:12 on the dried and over-ripe gleanings of the foolish virgin whose persecution will commence with the 'squeeze,' and after they realize the first resurrection has passed, these "recalcitrants" will be interned and eventually martyred. The US dollar and world economy will sink with Los Angeles, and the United States will be invaded during the brief "hot stage" of World War III, but peace will be restored by intervention of a federation of world religions led by Satan incarnate in the pope of Rome. He will be made president of a totalitarian one world government and consolidate his authority through the US Protestant image of the Beast, forcing post-"Christian" churches under submission to Rome, especially in the United States, ostensibly to defeat Communism and win the world to his trinity of gods.
Do you see the writing on the wall? Illuminus F. D. Roosevelt stated, "If something happens in politics you can bet it was planned that way." The eight hundred new and refurbished internment camps across the USA were planned for a secret, specific purpose without precedent in the nation's history. The laboratory production of man-made diseases designed for transmission by vaccination was planned in the nineteenth century and has been deployed to spread polio, tuberculosis, rubella, measles, AIDS, SARS, ADHD, SIDS, Spanish, Avian and N1H1 Swine 'flu, to sterilize women and violate the immune system of babies. The present worldwide flood of refugees employed to destroy cultural unity is reminiscent of the French revolutions when criminals and the insane were released to disrupt the social order. When the planned chaos has served its purpose, which is to introduce martial law, they will be interned. Martial law will enable government to force citizens to receive an RFID chip when they are compulsorily vaccinated; those who are interned will be forced to receive an RFID chip and compulsory vaccination. This assumes the 'hidden hand' is not behind the earthquake that will sink Los Angeles.
The motto of Mossad, Israel's spy and assassination agency, is "By Way of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War"a principle the Israelis have always lived up to. The artifice of creating chaos then seizing power under the pretense of restoring order is the methodology behind the Latin motto of 33rd Degree Masons: Ordo ab Chao, meaning "Order out of Chaos." It signifies the Hegelian dialect: problemreactionsolution whereby the conspirator clandestinely organizes two opposing parties, thesis and antithesis, bringing them together in controlled conflict to produce the synthesis, his pre-planned solution. As a 'hidden hand' working behind the scenes, the schemer "does war by way of deception," employing the resources of both combatants to achieve an objective inimical to their interests.
Revelation 14:14-16 describes God's discriminating judgment wherein the reaping signifies salvation to certain non-elect. The initial persecution of recalcitrants aside, we should remember that the beast will be universally loved and worshipped by the non-elect throughout the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Revelation 13:5-8). The martyrdom of the foolish virgin, those who have been good and kind to the Bride, and those who refuse to do obeisance to the image of the beast and receive the mark of the beast in their right hand signifying obedient service, or in their forehead signifying they have adopted its Trinitarian doctrine, will fall mainly in the second half of the Seventieth Week (Revelation 13:15-18).
Isaiah 28:23-29 teaches that the farmer does not always plough, lacerating the ground and breaking the clods, but casts the different seeds into their field. At harvest the fruit produced from the seed can be separated from the straw only by the application of a certain force, yet it is not too severely handled, nor is equal force applied to all varieties of fruit. This counsel should teach the non-elect, and Israel's elect who must also endure martyrdom, that the temporal judgments they must endure are only correctives in the hand of the Lord by which they will be purged and made glorious. So the wheat is first separated from the tares, reaped and threshed, followed later by the vintage. The grapes will be gathered in clusters and crushed in God's great winepress without Jerusalem in the Valley of Jehoshaphat, the scene of Armageddon, which is centred in Palestine (Isaiah 34:1-8; 63:1-6; Ezekiel 34 35; Joel 3:9-21; Zechariah 14:1-3; Revelation 19:13, 15).
Revelation 14:17-20 is the vintage of the vine brought out of Egypt and planted in the Promised Land, but which "broke down her hedges," as the once Christian West has opened her borders and churches let down the bars in these last days "so that all they who pass by the way may pluck her" (Psalm 80; Matthew 24:37; Genesis 6:1-4). Through miscegenation with the Edomites who were predominantly Hittites and Canaanites, and the Khazars who are predominantly Hittites, the vine failed, and instead of reproducing grapes it "brought forth wild grapes," or mamzers (Isaiah 5:2-4) Jeremiah 2:21 describes as "the degenerate plant of a strange (Heb. 'nokriy,' that is, a Serpent's seed) vine" (Deuteronomy 32:32-33; Hosea 10:1; Matthew 21:33-46). Therefore natural Israel was replaced by Christ, who is the "true Vine [and Author of Eternal joy and peace in contrast with Babylon of the Talmud and Rome] in whom we are branches" (Isaiah 49; John 15:1-2, 7).
"And another angel came forth out of the temple which is in the heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came forth out of the altar of incense (Revelation 8:3-5), having authority over the fire [over which incense had been offered which added the virtues of Christ for the blessing of the redeemed nation, and poured the coals back upon the earth for judgment in vengeance as in Ezekiel 10:1-7]; and cried with a loud voice to the one with the sharp sickle, Send forth your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel cast his sickle unto the earth, and gathered the vintage of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of God's wrath. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood flowed from the winepress, and for two hundred miles it flowed as high as a horse's bridle".
In the vintage not only will the 144,000 elect Israelites be crushed, but their impersonators, "the degenerate plant of a strange vine," Esau/Edom, who were forcibly assimilated with Judah in about 109BC by her king-priest, John Hyrcanus and again when the kingdom of Khazaria was united with the Talmudic Jews overnight in AD740. In its degeneracy the juice of the vine becomes the blood of sinners (Isaiah 63:3). As much as it has drunk will be pressed out of it again, and "it will flow for two hundred miles as high as a horse's bridles of the avenging armies of heaven" (Revelation 19:13-15).
Joel 3:18-21, "And in that day the mountains shall drip new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk. Water will fill the dry stream beds of Judah, and a fountain will burst forth from the house of the Lord to water the valley of Shittim. Egypt shall become a desolation, and Edom a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the sons of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land. But Judah shall be inhabited forever and Jerusalem to all generations. I will avenge their blood; I will not leave it unrequited: for the Lord dwells in Zion". nl597.htm
