Bible Believers' Newsletter 600
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
What need be said of leaders of the apostate once Christian West that God did not speak by His prophet Isaiah (59:6-8)? "Their works are works of iniquity, and violence is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they know not; and there is no justice in their ways: they have twisted their ways before them: whoever walks in that way shall not know peace".
As we listen to alien-controlled propaganda dressed up as "news" and hear glib-tongued mock-Christian Western politicians palaver in the UN it is refreshing to hear straight-talking courageous Muslim men like Libya's Colonel Gaddafi and Iran's Mr. Ahmadinejad declare axiomatic truths Rothschild's selected minions dare not breathe. The Western world is materially rich but morally and spiritually bereft. It pursues lies, propagates injustice, and wars on the side of anti-Christ to make widows and orphans of defenseless, innocent people.
Brother Branham warned, "Science says its three minutes till midnight. I think it's later than that now. . . Communism has wormed the country, and preachers are gone after communism instead of Christ. . . I ain't afraid of communism. The Coming of the Lord's going to catch you unprepared . . ." (God identified by His Characteristics, p. 21:151).
In this issue we study Revelation 12 and find a few surprises. In less than a decade this whole chapter will be history.
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.

The Chip is at the Tip of the Needle
Yesterday, 27 August 2009, I was giving an introductory talk about German New Medicine (GNM) near Vienna, Austria . . . as part of the discussion the swine flu was mentioned and a lady got up and declared. . . A friend of hers works for a pharmaceutical company in Vienna and told her that the swine flu injection needles indeed contain nano particles in their very tip, which cannot be detected with the naked eye but are clearly visible with as little as a 12X magnifying microscope like children's toy microscopes. The staff of the pharmaceutical company was advised that these nano particles work in the human body like a motherboard in the computer and lots of data can be stored on it. . .
You can best understand what the intent is by what is NOT talked about. One may talk about the vaccination, but nobody mentions the chip implanting by name. That is really strange because the chipping is the obvious issue in the face of these massive governmental measures. And that the Hitachi chip works and can be combined with the death chip we already talked about during the last interview. . .
It is also very strange that the US gov. has created this Marshall Law, under which critics can be easily removed by the thousands and millions. And once you have chipped the people they cannot run away from you anymore. . . It is obvious that this chip battle has been under preparation for many years. The idiotic swine flu, . . . with that they lied and constructed a worldwide pandemic into existence. But it goes to show what a well organised world press is able to achieve: They can turn a mole hill into a mountain.
It started with the AIDS lie, then followed the BSE lie. After the 9/11 lie followed the Anthrax lie. Then it was the Bird Flu lie, now it is the Swine Flu lie. Next year we'll have the Mice Flu lie. It all points to "the final solution". When everybody has a chip then that will constitute the complete slavery, then everybody can be manipulated and assassinated arbitrarily.
First they jump on the babies and the pregnant women. They are first to be treated with chips and Tamiflu. Many of the pregnant women in their last trimester are going to lose their babies, because Tamiflu is totally toxic. But also the women themselves can die, as their bodies are vagotonic during the last trimester. It is a known fact that during vagotonia, one flu shot or one morphine injection can be deadly. . .

Comment: World population is being reduced not because of a lack of resources (more fear-mongering nonsense). It is because the "cult of death" driven by the Rothschild/Zionist organized crime family cannot control 6.5 billion people but can control 500 million, and thus realize their dream of world domination. Revelation 6:8.
AH1N1 (2009) Swine Flu Vaccine
September 19, 2009 The nation's campaign to vaccinate 21 million Australians against the AH1N1 2009 strain of influenza is due to begin on Saturday, September 30th. Since the Southern Hemisphere has already passed through the 2009 flu season, one has to wonder why the government is rushing this campaign?
The vaccine, which does not even have a name yet . . . is laden with toxic mercury, is targeting those who are the most vulnerable to permanent brain damage from exposure to this banned poison . . . When AH1N1 vaccine had the Thiomersal (mercury) preservative removed and was tested on a small group of elderly people in the UK, the number of reactions, though still considerable, was cut by 50% and more for some conditions.

The History of the "Money Changers"
Economists continually try and sell the public the idea that recessions or depressions are a natural part of what they call the "business cycle". This timeline below will prove that is simply not the case. Recessions and depressions only occur because the Central Bankers manipulate the money supply, to ensure more and more is in their hands and less and less is in the hands of the people. Central Bankers developed out of money changers and it is with these people we pick the story up in 48BC. . . Full story: iamthewitness.com
Catholic Church funding A.C.O.R.N.
September 23, 2009 While Obama has strong ties to ACORN, they were originally established through the US Catholic Church, which has also funded ACORN and similar organizations to the tune of millions of dollars. This is another taboo topic for most of the media. Even conservative news organizations are afraid of raising the issue, apparently fearing being tagged with the "anti-Catholic" label.
But the truth has been seeping out in mysterious ways. In a Politico.com story about Barack Obama's friendly meeting with the Pope, reporter Josh Gerstein featured information that made it clear that the President's Catholic connection goes back to his days as a community organizer and that Obama's associates understand and appreciate this fact.
Deputy National Security Adviser Denis McDonough was quoted as saying that Obama's work as an organizer on the South Side of Chicago "was funded partly" by the "Catholic Church campaign for human development. . ." He was referring to the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD); an annual collection authorized by the US Catholic Bishops which is advertised as a charity to "break the vicious cycle of poverty" but in reality has funded left-wing political organizations such as ACORN to the tune of millions of dollars. . .

Comment: Brother Branham said, "Then Joseph was sold for almost thirty pieces of silver by his brothers. The Jewish church betrayed Joseph.
Today what is it in this church? A betrayal. They getting documents; they're going to try to have a . . . confederation of churches. The churches of Christ of America has already confederating with all their churches, and they're going to have a band here someday that'll shut out to fight Communism, which will hook up with Catholicism, with the Protestant church and the Catholic church together. And the interdenominations who stand out for the truth, and get away from that dogma that they've got, will be persecuted. The mark of the beast, the Seal of God, the showdown will soon come. And, brother, if That's not in there, you'll be deceived as sure as the world, 'cause it'll look so nice. You'll say, "Now, if Communism made for the world, why, let us make another agreement, and bring all the Christian, and Christianize the world back." And look so good, the people will jump into it. See? They'll confederate the churches, and bring, try to make Christianity one unit. And the Bible says in Revelations, that he give his power and everything, that he made an image unto the beast and exercised all the power the beast did before him. . . We're at the end of the age" (Israel in Egypt, p. 26 166-167).
Covenant Relationship Part III
Hebrews 11:1, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by faith the men of old received Divine approval. By faith we understand that the universe was created at the spoken Word of God, so that things that are seen were made out of what cannot be seen".
Faith is a clear revelation of God's spoken Word expressing His eternal and immutable thoughts which will come to pass in their designated and decreed season and time for "the works of God are faith expressed" (James 2:17-26). When faith is expressed it becomes a material substance manifesting His eternal purpose in time in contradistinction to doubt or unbelief which is an anti-Word, anti-matter delusion.
Today we will be studying Revelation 12. This whole chapter is a revelation addressed to the 144,000 for Christ's Bride was caught up in Revelation 4 into the PROCESS called the "rapture" and does not reappear until she returns in Revelation 19. Revelation 12:1-6 is a resume of the greatest battle ever fought up to the close of the Gentile dispensation and Christ's imminent 'parousia' Coming to Israel. Heaven consists of God's eternal thoughts not yet expressed but being omniscient He is also aware of everything contrary to the Logos: matter and anti-matter, Christ and antichrist, events with existence in eternity or only in time yet necessary to the realization of His eternal purpose (Romans 8:28). So the war that began in God's foreknowledge must necessarily be played out here on earth, passing through free moral agency and time in order to manifest the substance of faith and reveal His glory and justice in reward or retribution.
"A great sign was seen in the heaven; a woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: she was with child, travailing, and tormented to bring forth. And there was seen another sign in the heaven; and, behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. And his tail swept down the third part of the stars of the heaven, and cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman who was about to bring forth, that he might devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who is to shepherd all nations with an iron rod: and her child was caught up to God, and to His throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared by God, where they would feed her a thousand two hundred and threescore days".
The Bible is the story of God unfolding Himself or changing His form from the unseen Spirit alone with His thoughts to the manifestation of those thoughts in the form of His glorified Family: Jesus Christ and His Wife, His friends the Old Covenant saints, and her personal attendants, the 144,000 elect Israelites. We know God is the original Word and the original seed or Logos, and that He is masculine in designation for when manifest in flesh He was Jesus Messiah. The feminine of God is the soul of His saints, elect by His foreknowledge of her free choice and by grace through faith coming under preeminence to the Word of the hour when she hears It call her name (I Peter 1:2).
It has taken the Lord six thousand years to gather the Bride for Christ, a people for His Name. When the last member is sealed He will call 144,000 elect Israelites, who will be purged through martyrdom in the upcoming tribulation as will the foolish virgin and other non-elect groups of the "saved" remnant. Having crossed into the S_O_N-Light of grace, the elect lady has the Moon as if it were the Law beneath her feet. As the Moon reflects the light of the Sun but cannot disperse darkness and change it into day, neither can the Law, which had a shadow of good things to come but not the true form of these realities, make perfect those who continually approach with the same sacrifices year after year. Lady Grace is clothed in the S_O_N-Light of righteousness through Divine revelation and crowned with twelve Stars signifying the doctrine of the apostles prophets (Psalm 19:1-6; Malachi 4:2; Revelation 19:17).
As it was the Old Covenant Church which bore Christ it is that invisible Church which was in travail at His advent. The torment of her travail is suggestive of the hatred of Judaizing fanaticism, which having misinterpreted the Scriptures, was anticipating a messianic warrior who would confront the Roman empire and restore the kingdom to Israel, and as their son, rise to supreme power and shepherd the nations with an iron rod (Isaiah 9:6). But the pagan empire is the enemy of God, of Israel and of the Church in both Old and New Covenant dispensations, for the fiery red Dragon of Revelation 12:3 is the fourth Gentile world power, succeeding Babylon, Medo-Persia and Greece. This is Imperial Rome as the diadems are upon its seven heads who will claim divinity: Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, and Galba, a caricature of the seven Spirits of God, while the ten yet uncrowned horns are the worldly kingdoms or powers into which the empire would divide, ten being the number of the world.
Revelation 13:1-3 portrays the Dragon after one of his heads is mortally wounded, and dominion, signified by ten diadems, transferred to the ten nations into which the empire divided: the Almani (Germany), Franks (France), Saxons (England), Visgoths (Spain), Burgundians (Switzerland), Lombards (Italy), Seuvi (Portugal), Heruli (nomadic Germans), Vandals and Ostrogoths (Germanic tribes that originated in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway). Imperial Rome is dead, but under Emperor Constantine its "deadly wound is healed" at the First Nicaea Council of AD325, and it resurrects as Papal Rome.
Revelation 13:15 portrays the rise of the image of the beasts of Imperial and Papal Rome in a union of the apostate (once) Protestant churches with the secular power of the depraved United States of America under Roman authority. This will be the final incarnation of the fourth beast. The Lord told Daniel, "The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and will devour the whole earth, and tread it down, and break it in pieces." In describing Rome's one world government Daniel told Nebuchadnezzar, "whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they will mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they will not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom will not be left to other people, but will break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever". God was prophesying this day of multiculturalism, the great sin for which God destroyed the world by flood, and will destroy it again by fire (Genesis 6:1-4; Matthew 24:37; II Peter 3:6-7).
Revelation 17 depicts the Dragon in its final incarnation. Satan having been cast down to earth has incarnate the pope under whom church and state are reunited in a revived Holy Roman Empire with the power and strength of ten kingdoms vested in the eighth head who will force the mark of the beast and demand worship as God. Hereafter he is known as the Beast and together with the Black Nobility he will "make war with the Lamb," the man child of the woman. However, after Rome breaks her agreement with the Jewish international banksters, the Khazar Black Nobility will side with Judaeo-Communist Russia and "hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with [nuclear] fire".
The Dragon's power was concentrated in Judea at the advent of Christ and "stood before the woman to devour her child as soon as it was born" when Roman tetrarch Herod the Great attempted to assassinate the infant Jesus. Herod was an Edomite who sought to recover the blessing Esau had forfeited, in vain setting up an earthly kingdom to rival Messiah's Spiritual Kingdom with a temple more splendid than Solomon's. But warned by the Lord, Joseph and Mary fled with the Child to Egypt, and Herod murdered all Hebrew boys of two years and under (Jeremiah 31:15; Matthew 2:18).
Unlike the heaven in which the sign of Christ's 'parousia' Coming has manifest to we Gentiles and the similar sign to be seen by "those who pierced Him" (Daniel 7:9; Matthew 24:3, 30; 26:64; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7, 14), this "heaven" of Revelation 12 refers to the fourth dimension and a revelation of the mind of God and not the sky or sidereal heavens, for the battle is between revelation and obedience on the one hand, or slothfulness, deception and spiritual blindness on the other (Isaiah 9:15). This is affirmed by the fact "his tail swept down the third part of the stars of the heaven, (Israel's high priests and most of the Sanhedrin), and cast them down to worldly-mindedness," poisoning and perverting even the Messianic hopes of the Judean Israelites ("the third part" of man) by "teaching for doctrine the commandments of men, (Pharisaism and the Babylonian Talmud) that make the Word of God of no effect to them." When they rejected and caused the nation to take the Blood of Christ on themselves and their children, as it will be to the consummation, and by consent of Roman procurator Pontius Pilate, crucified Messiah, they were blotted from the Book of Life (Matthew 15:1-9; 27:25; Psalm 69:26-28; Daniel 9:24).
In another aspect the travail of the New Covenant woman commenced with the day of Pentecost, and from that day to this the Dragon stands striving to destroy her offspring, whom "neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, will be able to separate from the love of God who is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 8:38-39). Now that her labour is near its end she is brought into the field of John's apocalyptic vision, and like her Lord and Saviour her children will be caught up to the great Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the sky (I Thessalonians 4:14-18).
From the day of Pentecost we Gentiles are given to Christ as His field (Psalm 2:8-12; Matthew 13:38; Acts 2:38-39; Revelation 2:26-27; 19:15), and it is among Gentiles that the woman fled for refuge from Jewish persecution as we find from Acts 8 onwards. To the Hebrews the lands of the Gentiles were a spiritual wilderness forsaken by God. Hence when Israel was exiled to Babylon it is said to be in "the wilderness" (Ezekiel 20:35-36), but the wilderness of the invisible or true Church and Body of Christ, is a place of Spiritual discipline in sanctification and renunciation of the world with all of its charms for a situation of blessing wherein our priorities are the nourishing of our souls and service to Christ.
Brother Branham said, "When her man Child was caught up to sit on God's throne . . . the woman fled into the wilderness where she was taken care of for a thousand two hundred and three score days, to exactly the date of Plymouth Rock, exactly, where the church came over here for freedom of religion, and she established here" just as Israel wandered in the wilderness and established in Canaan Land (Mark of the Beast, #26:3, 22:157). Deducting 1,260 regular 365.25-day years from 1620, we come to AD360 which is the date of the Council at Constantinople where the Nicene Creed was issued as Roman Catholic dogma.
"And so is this great nation of ours. We come here, and on Plymouth Rock this nation was founded on freedom of religion because our forefathers had fled Roman persecution of the modern Jezebel system, and had come up, and stood many great persecutions and martyrdom under that false system of Jezebel. And according to the Bible, of Revelation 13:11, God had promised them an oasis and a place, for the woman was carried into the wilderness where she was fed for a time, time, and a dividing of time. God made the promise to the church (to the woman) to come into this country America" (Jezebel Religion, 7:53). The founders of Philadelphia called themselves "the woman in the wilderness" because they had fled religious persecution.
Revelation 12:7-14 commences at the sounding of the Seventh Trumpet that will soon end the Gentile dispensation four centuries after the Pilgrim Fathers landed at what is now Plymouth, Massachusetts. Ridiculed as "Puritans," because they wished to purify the Church of England from within, later as "Separatists," because they separated from the fallen church and formed congregations of their own, they fled England to the New World where they determined to worship in Spirit and in Truth. Alas, the woman's offspring has left Pilgrim piety for that mighty nicolaitane ecclesiastico-political institution, the apostate visible church that persecuted the Fathers and is forming an image to the beast that will martyr the "saved".
When the Seventh Trumpet sounds, the Seventh Vial of Brother Branham's Message poured out into the fourth dimension or "air" will cleanse the heavenly sanctuary of the minuscule invisible Church with the Token on display, casting the Dragon and his demons upon its antithesis, the earth-bound fallen woman, liberating Christ's Bride from their deceptive arts and qualifying us to "meet the Lord in the air" cleansed of anything contrary to the pure faith, which is the mind of God, so we can operate the 'third pull' (Revelation 16:17; 15:8; Romans 8:19; I Thessalonians 4:17). As this will be the time of Christ's 'parousia' Coming to Israel the Seventh Vial will also distinguish the foolish virgin from the denominational harlots.
Revelation 12:7-9, "And there was war in the heaven, Michael and His angels warring with the dragon; and the dragon warred and his angels, and they prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in the heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down out, the ancient serpent, called Devil, and the Satan [or Adversary], who deceives the inhabited world: he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him.
This war began in God's foreknowledge and is played out here on earth in the three dimensions with which our five physical senses communicate light, matter, and time. However, it is a spiritual war inspired through the higher, fourth dimension of the "air" or heaven, to men whose understanding is a "strong delusion" reliant upon the five senses of their mortal spiritconscience, memory, imagination, reasoning and affection, and men blessed with the sixth sense called "faith" and walking in the Light of the present Truthwhat Jesus is doing now! Men's actions are guided by their beliefs, so we are not engaged in a general co-ordinated war as much as individual battles between fleshly angels or messengers who follow the understanding of Michael, who is Christ, and fleshly angels or messengers who are influenced by the Dragon who is Satan. These battles are taking place day and night throughout the world but as "the weapons of our warfare are not carnal" (II Corinthians 10:3-6).
The Adversary and his angels "prevailed not" because Christ took the form of a servant and humbled Himself in obedience to death. On account of this God exalted Him and gave Him a Name above every name, so that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow in heaven, on earth and under the earth (Philippians 2:6-11). Thus, with the Token on display the Dragon and his angels are cast out of the communion of saints and excluded from that part of the fourth dimension living in you by a clear revelation of the Absolute of God's Word through this end-time Message. And so long as the Token is on display in your life it sanctifies those in your presence; this is how your Token can sanctify and preserve the salvation of your loved ones.
Let us further clarify precisely what this "heaven" is, and how Satan and his angels are expelled after the completion of the birth of Christ's Bride at the end of grace. "I . . . (insert your name here) . . . heard a loud voice saying in the heaven, Now is come the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ: for the Accuser of our brethren is thrown down, who accused them before our God by day and by night" (Revelation 12:10).
This song of triumph over the liberation of Christ's end-time Bride expresses the great contrast between herself and the visible world church systema contrast as great as that between heaven and earth, wheat and tares, and brings to mind Luke 10:17-19: "the seventy returned with the joy and said, Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your Name. And Jesus said, I beheld Satan fall from heaven like lightning, for you see, I have given you the authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you".
Brother Branham commented, "The power of that Church moving forward had just upset the whole kingdom of Satan. You see? And He saw him as he dropped from his places. Because God had again give power to His Church to go to. . . "He beheld him falling like lightning from heaven." He was cast plumb out of the holy places and everything (You see?), by that power of that Church, of them having power. Jesus said, "I give you power over unclean spirits." See? And they really upset the kingdom of Satan. What could we do with it today? Oh, praise the Lord" (Thy House, #61-0808).
Satan was not cast down from the seventh dimension where God is, but from that part of the fourth dimension on which you are nourishing your soul in communion with Jesus Christ, with the saints in your circle of fellowship, through Spoken Word books and tapes, your Bible and the writings of saints who preceded us. The revelation of this end-time Message clears the "air" of Fifth Trumpet "smoke," denominational creed, tradition and erroneous guesswork (Ephesians 6:12; Revelation 9:1-2). Zechariah 14:6-8 prophesied, "In the day in which the mount of Olives cleaves in two, the Light will be [like a thick fog] not altogether light nor altogether darkness: but it will be an altogether unique day known to the Lord, not altogether daylight, yet not the darkness of night. But it will come to pass, that at evening time towards the close of this twilight time of calamity it shall be Light. And it shall be in that day, that living waters go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter will it be".
Do you understand? We live in this hypocritical age, but "if you resist the Devil, he will flee from you" (James 4:7). Brother Branham's Message brought us Light in the evening time, and as the greatest battle ever fought is an individual war we must not compromise the Message but take it back to the Absolute of God's written Word from Genesis to Revelation and obey what It says do.
At the revelation of the Seven Seals "Jesus came from heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His saints, and the Bible said that the heavens were empty for the space of a half hour" (William Branham, Sardis Church Age, p. 348:96; I Thessalonians 4:4-16; Jude 14-15; Revelation 8:1). The fullness of the Word is Present now in the fourth dimension with the objective of incarnating His end-time Bride to bring her into the unity of the faith under preeminence in obedience to the Word so that the 'third pull' can operate in us to manifest that we are the Sons of God at the completion of the birth of Christ's Bride. The Token in us by the perfect understanding of His Word casts the Dragon and his angels out of our former PART-Word understanding and renders us immune to their deceit (Matthew 24:24; I Corinthians 13:10).
When the Bride is in "speaking conditions," filled with a perfect understanding of the Word and has the Token on display, Satan's accusing will be finished: he will be cast down at the sounding of the Seventh Trump because through our immunity his power will be restricted to the non-elect, and until the 144,000 Israelites are sealed they will be safe from harm (Revelation 7:3; 11:15). The Seventh Trumpet will be attended by earthquakes sinking Los Angeles and cleaving the Mount of Olives, and the first resurrection will commence.
Revelation 12:11-12, "[Our Church Age brethren] have conquered him by virtue of the Blood of the Lamb, and [the Fifth Seal Israelites overcame] by the Word of their testimony; and they loved not their life unto death. Rejoice, O heavens! You citizens of heaven, rejoice! Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and the sea! Because the Devil is come down to you with raging anger, knowing that he has little time".
This refers to time of the first resurrection, the manifestation of the Sons of God and the appearing of the glorified saints to elevate us to translation faith to be changed in the twinkling of an eye. After the translation Satan will have only the seven years of Daniel's Seventieth Week before he is bound a thousand years during which the government of Israel shall be upon Christ's shoulder, which is His Body, represented by Israel's high priest who bore the names of the twelve tribes engraved in onyx stones in gold settings on his shoulders: then we will shepherd the non-elect with an iron rod (Exodus 28:6-14; 39:6-7; Psalm 2:8-12; Isaiah 9:6; Revelation 2:26-27; 19:15).
Like the corresponding prophecy of Daniel 12:1 these verses are written for Israel because our Brother and Lord Jesus Christ, the Archangel or Chief Messenger is here addressed by the Hebrew name, Michael ("Who is like God"). This is the beginning of Daniel's Seventieth Week and the resumption of Covenant relationship with Israel when Michael stands up for the elect Israelites. The Dragon is Satan and "his angels" are they whose names were never on the Book of Life from the foundation of the world or have been removed therefrom (Revelation 17:8) and have no place in heaven, that is, in the Word of Life.
Revelation 12:13-17, "And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the Earth, he persecuted the woman who brought forth the man child".
When Satan is cast down he will incarnate the pope of Rome who changes from the false prophet to the beast. The Bride will become a hunted and persecuted little group, and after a brief and powerful display of the Spirit in the manifestation of the Sons of God she will go Home for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in the sky. In this scene the elect Church has been translated and aided by its (once) Protestant image and the self-styled Jews, Satan is once again persecuting the Israelite Church who brought forth Jesus, the Messiah.
"And to the woman were given the two wings of the great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished there a time, and times, and half a time, [and thus preserved] from the face of the serpent".
This verse alludes to the first exodus when Jehovah bore Israel out of Egypt on "Eagles' wings" and shows that the Old Covenant Church and those before them, as well as the New Covenant Church, are included in "the woman" (Exodus 19:4; Deuteronomy 32:9-12; Isaiah 40:30,31). The Great Eagle is Jehovah, whose wings, "two olive trees" of the Old and New Covenants, are expounded by "two olive branches"prophets anointed with the Spirit that endued Moses and Elijahto raise 144,000 elect Israelites from their fallen state in their "place" by identifying prophetic shadows and types from the Old Covenant in completed history reveal the present Truth and their New Covenant destiny (Zechariah 4). Eagles' wings allow the woman to soar above the fowl yard of earthbound Judaic chickens scratching in the manure of Talmudic traditions as "a dog returns to his own vomit; and the washed pig to wallowing in the mire" (II Peter 2:22) for a morsel to feed their emaciated souls. From lofty heavens Jehovah's eaglets can see the Kingdom restored to Israel, and in the distance, New Jerusalem, that City of Gold overshadowed by the Shekinah in the renewed heavens and renewed earth.
In the spiritual "wilderness" of modern Israel, "that is called Sodom and Egypt," 144,000 elect Israelites will renounce the sham religion of the Pharisees and its lewd holy book, and meet God on the backside of the desert "where also our Lord was crucified" (Revelation 11:8).
"And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman water as a flood, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth concerning the woman, and departed to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus".
Revelation 12:15-17 will take place in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week following the dedication of a new temple David ben Gurion said will be "a shrine of the prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; [Lucifer's one world government]; this will be the seat of the supreme court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah [56:7]" (Look Magazine, January 16, 1962). The pope will usurp the inauguration and exalt himself as if he were God, then he will martyr the two prophets. Thereafter Rome will abrogate the covenant she has made with the non-Semitic anti-Semitic self-styled Jewish banksters of the City of London (Daniel 9:27) and begin to force the mark of the beast. Rome and her allies will send troops to destroy all the God-fearing, Word-abiding Israelites. But as they come against the city to destroy it, there will appear in the heavens the sign of the 'parousia' Coming of the Son of Man with His mighty armies to destroy them who have been destroying the earth.
We are now in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. With the enemy repulsed, Jesus then comes and presents Himself to the 144,000 by revelation. As explained in Zechariah 12:9 13:9, this not the second physical return or 'erchomai' Coming of the glorified Son of David, but the 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man. Having seen His mighty acts of salvation, they have come to know His power. But also seeing His wounds and knowing that they had rejected Him even to that moment, causes them to cry out in the agony of terror and fear, even as did their brethren of old when they stood before Joseph, being sore afraid that they would be killed. But as Joseph said, "Don't be angry with yourselves. It is alright. God was in it all. He did it to preserve life." Even so will Jesus speak peace and love to them (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 41).
Thereafter Rome will martyr the foolish virgin, 144,000 elect Israelites and whomsoever remains in the Book of Life and refuses to take the mark of the beast, and Armageddon will set in. nl600.htm
Homework: Please review The Woman Clothed with the Sun, a parallel teaching from 2002 which shows forty-second US president George II destroyed US democracy, symbolized in Brother Branham's vision as the caribou with forty-two inch horns, as Rome that "don't know how to die" is symbolized as a silver tip grizzly bear. Also review Joe Brandt's dreams which seem to indicate forty-third US President Barak Hussein Obama, Sotero, Dunham, or whoever he is with his big ears that will see Los Angeles sink beneath the Pacific as the Gentile dispensation ends, and the United States unites with the church under Rome.
