Was the Earthquake in Haiti Induced?
Between January 12 20, Haiti experienced forty-eight earthquakes greater than 4.5 on the Richter Scaleeach at the statistically improbable uniformly shallow depth of 10kmdid the 'Black' contractors fail to procure parallel detonations because "certain charges that had been intended to go off didn't ignite"? As shown by this USGS log the 2006 Boxing Day earthquake and tsunami bore an identical signature.
'Miraculously'unlike the situation prevailing following every previous earthquake on record, the roads were not disrupted, and neither were the airport runways; the adjoining Dominican Republic on the same island [less that 25km from Port-au-Prince] experienced no damage or earthquakes at all, and no tsunami ensued; had this been a natural earthquake event measuring 7.0 on the Richter Scale, and not a deliberate operation, it would have produced a colossal tsunami affecting everyone in the region. . .
[See Earthquakes: Natural or Man-made? And TIME: exclusive photographs of Haiti's earthquake destructionyou need to know where it came from].
This has happened as a consequence of the international community's clampdown, the $47 trillion lien placed on the US Treasury, the reported foreclosure on the lien by the Lien Holders during the evening of 11th January, and the irrevocable special measures taken in the United Kingdom at 9:00am on Tuesday 12th January 2010. It appears this earthquake centred on Port-au-Prince was induced to enable the theft and diversion of Settlement transfers in association with the corrupt recipient central bank in Haiti to which William Jefferson Rockefeller-Clinton was appointed United Nations Special Envoy on May 20, 2009). . .
Using the Central Bank of Haiti, leveraged monies can be duplicated many times electronically, so that the global end-resultif the Lien Holders do not immediately exercise their full powers in the most decisive manner with no further prevaricationwill be the appearance of further quadrillions of derivatives in a very short space of time, which in turn will most certainly lead to the collapse of the dollar, the international financial system, and the disintegration of the United States and of now clearly vulnerable countries such as the United Kingdom (as is intended). . .
The Lien holders MUST act NOW, and in a decisive manner, so that these arrogant 'in-your-face' US criminalists cannot achieve their objectivesnamely, to proliferate Fraudulent Finance so that the entire world financial and real economies collapse, 'enabling them' to mobilize their stashed illicit, untaxed accruals from their offshore accounts, so as to buy up real assets at fire sale prices. . .
Was the criminal, mass murdering CIA subcontractor the renamed 'Blackwater', by any chance? Does it operate submarines? It does . . .
And was Germany, which is really controlled by the continuing heirs of the Nazi Abwehr (military counterintelligence, Deutsche Verteidigungs Dienst (DVD)), involved? It operates several fleets of special submarines used for drug-running and other nefarious purposes, including delivering (with French assistance) nuclear materials to Iran.
Another obvious candidate for the rôle of state co-conspirator with the criminal US structures within the US Intelligence Power that perpetrated this abomination is the Zionazi faction within Israeli Intelligence, which is arguably more ruthless than its American and German associates. . .

For the purposes of resolving this crisis HABEAS CORPUS IS SUSPENDED [for the purposes strictly of procuring compliance with the Writ of Enforcement and the huge Lien against the US Treasury and thus the (legitimate) Settlements]. The last time this happened was under President Lincoln.
The US Government has surrendered its authority to an international organization [INTERPOL] charged with investigating corruption inside the US Government's own structures. The United States has not been sovereign since the Lien Holders had to proceed with executing their Lien on or about 6th December 2009, but will of course resume its sovereign status on satisfaction of the Lien. [This would explain the email we received from the webmaster of the US Senate Website posted in the editorial of Newsletter 616]. . . Full story: worldreports.org
Comment: Napolitano announced Friday that the administration would give tens of thousands of undocumented Haitians in the United States the chance to remain here under an immigration program called Temporary Protected Status, or TPS. The administration also said deportation orders against Haitian immigrants would be temporarily halted.
Those who qualify will be able to remain in the United States legally for 18 months and, more importantly, obtain work permits that would allow them to earn money to send to needy family members in Haiti. . . Full story: miamiherald.com.
The American Red Cross says there is a plan to bring as many as 45,000 evacuees from Haiti to Florida . . . through Jacksonville to be divided and distributed to Florida urban areas, including Tampa, Miami and Orlando. At this point, it is not clear yet what other Florida cities might host earthquake victims. The only certainty is that it will likely happen quickly and require a team effort. . . Full story: wsbtv.com
45,000 inassimilable permanent residents is almost certainly one objective for this earthquake. Perhaps FEMA camps built for the mass internment of US citizens are not good enough for Haitians? America, eat your heart out:
"You tired, you poor huddled masses of homeless US citizens,
Whose houses have been foreclosed by dual-citizen banksters.
You wretched unemployed refuse, whose jobs have been expatriated
To Third World countries who receive your taxes as foreign aid.
Send these, the US homeless, tempest-tost into the streets.
I extinguish my lamp beside the closed door.
A parody of "The New Colossus" by Jewess Emma Lazarus, inscribed on a tablet in the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty (sic). Officially known as Liberty Enlightening the World, she holds the Illuminati "Torch of Enlightenment," or "Reason" signifying the Sun. Affixed several decades after its construction, the sonnet helped change it to a symbol of immigration, or as we would say, multiculturalism, which is accursed of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Professor Kevin MacDonald has discovered that implausible arguments about diversity being a quintessentially American strength have been made by Jews for a long time. He reports that in 1948 the American Jewish Committee was urging Congress to believe that "Americanism is the spirit behind the welcome that America has traditionally extended to people of all races, all religions, all nationalities." Of course, there had never been such a tradition. In 1952, the American Jewish Congress argued in hearings on immigration that "our national experience has confirmed beyond a doubt that our very strength lies in the diversity of our peoples." This, too, was at a time when US immigration law was still explicitly designed to maintain a white majority.
It has often been said that when the old immigration policy was scrapped in 1965, scarcely anyone knew, and no one predicted, that the new law would change the racial makeup of the country. Professor MacDonald disputes this, arguing that this had been the objective of Jewish groups from the beginning.
Professor MacDonald finds that Jews have been the foremost advocates of immigration in England, France, and Canada, and that Jewish groups were the most vocal opponents of independence for Quebec. Australian Jews led the effort to dismantle the "white Australia" policy, one reason for which was cited in an editorial in the Australian Jewish Democrat: "The strengthening of multi-cultural or diverse Australia is also our most effective insurance policy against anti-Semitism. The day Australia has a Chinese Australian Governor General I would feel more confident of my freedom to live as a Jewish Australian." Like Earl Raab writing about the United States, this Australian Jew is prepared to sacrifice the traditional culture, people, and identity of Australia to specifically Jewish interests. It would not be surprising if such an openly expressed objective did not have the opposite effect from that intended, and increase anti-Jewish sentiment.
Speaking before a special meeting of the Emergency Council of European Rabbis in Budapest on January 12, 1952, Rabbi Emanuel Rabinovich said concerning progress towards their NWO, ". . . We will openly reveal our identity with the races of Asia and Africa. I can state with assurance that the last generation of white children is now being born. Our Control Commissions will, in the interests of peace and wiping out inter-racial tensions, forbid the whites to mate with whites. The white women must cohabit with members of the dark races, the white men with black women. Thus the white race will disappear, for mixing the dark with the white means the end of the white man, and our most dangerous enemy will become only a memory . . ."
The full text of this speech was originally made available to Common Sense (N.J., USA) by Eustace Mullins and brought to the attention of Captain William Guy Carr by the Canadian Intelligence Service; he published it verbatim in Pawns in the Game (pp. 104-106). This is one of many similar quotes by prominent Jews like Theodore Herzl, Rabbi Reichorn, Dr. Oscar Levy, Bernard Lazare, Rabbi Stephen Wise and Maurice Samuel who were all inspired by the Talmud. Jesus Messiah, who abhorred the Talmud, prophesied this evil (Matthew 24:37) as did Moses before Him (Genesis 6:1-4).
US citizens might like to learn something of the corruption that seems to be the life-blood of their nation. This explains why we advised Brethren concerned for the plight of Haitians against donating to public appeals by Clinton and Bush. Wise donors may safely contribute here. Now read this. A stench of genocidal criminality and deception pervades the Haiti earthquake and "rescue" at San Isidro Air Base, a missed opportunity to help Haiti.
Good bye America! Hello Amerika.
US Quake Test goes 'Horribly Wrong'
January 14, 2010 A grim report prepared by the Russian Northern Fleet for Prime Minister Putin is stating today that the catastrophic earthquake that has devastated the Island of Haiti was the 'clear result' of a United States Navy test of one of its 'earthquake weapons' planned to be used by the Americans upon the Persian Nation of Iran but had gone 'horribly wrong. The Northern Fleet has been monitoring US Naval movements and activities in the Caribbean since 2008...
Though virtually unknown to the American people, the use, and perfection, of earthquake weapon technology has a decade's long history that began with the former Soviet Union's exploding of a 10 megaton nuclear bomb in September, 1978 and then 'redirecting' its shockwave towards Iran where it resulted in a catastrophic 7.4 magnitude earthquake, an event which hastened the downfall of the US backed regime headed by the Shah.
This attack upon Iran by the Soviets was countered by the Americans in April, 1979 when they unleashed one of their newly developed 'atomic powered' earthquake weapons against the former communist Nation of Yugoslavia which resulted in a 7.2 magnitude earthquake.
Since the late 1970's, the United States has 'greatly advanced' the state of its earthquake weapons and, according to these reports, now employs devices employing a Tesla Electromagnetic Pulse, Plasma and Sonic technology, along with 'shockwave bombs' they have previously been accused by Russia of employing in their war against the Afghan peoples when one of these 'devices' was exploded in Afghanistan in March, 2002 triggering a devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake. . .
FSB reports on Aum Shinrikyo further state that their knowledge of the planned use of these 'doomsday' devices was gained from the US computer hackers belonging to the Branch Davidian religious order who had penetrated some of the American defense establishments' most secret files and resulted in their, likewise, being completely destroyed in what is now known as the Waco Siege ordered by then Deputy US District Attorney [under Janet Reno], and currently Obama's US Attorney General, Eric Holder. . . A most critical difference when viewed in the light of the US Navy's testing of 2 of these earthquake weapons this past week and where in their Pacific test it resulted in a 6.5 magnitude earthquake hitting the area around the Northern California city of Eureka causing no deaths. . .

Comment: This story and the links answer many questions. We are witnessing an "outing" of "the image to the beast," which Jesus said will "kill all not do obeisance to its will" (Revelation 13:15). Were I resident in the United States, I would abandon ship for any other port well ahead of April, and consider the odds of the desperate parallel government doing to Los Angeles what they have done to so many other locations around the globe a distinct possibility. Brother Branham said the antediluvian people caused the Flood by their atomic science: "The first time in Noah's time, they throwed it away from the sun, caused the water. This time they'll throw it into the sun, same thing, atomic power, throw it into the sun, out of its orbit" (Redemption, #55-1119). Jesus warned us, "as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the Son of man" (Luke 17:26).
Norway Time Hole 'Leak' plunges Northern Hemisphere into Chaos
January 8, 2010 Russian scientists are reporting to Prime Minister Putin the high-energy beam fired into the upper heavens from the United States High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) radar facility in Ramfjordmoen, Norway this past month has resulted in a "catastrophic puncturing" of our planet's thermosphere thus allowing into the troposphere an "unimpeded thermal inversion" of the exosphere, which is the outermost layer of Earth's atmosphere.
As to how catastrophic this massive thermal inversion has been for our planet, Anthony Nunan, assistant general manager for risk management at Mitsubishi Corporation in Tokyo reports that the entire Northern Hemisphere is in winter chaos, with the greatest danger from this unprecedented Global event being the destruction of billions of dollars worth of crops in a World already nearing the end of its ability to feed itself. . .

Comment: This is put forward as an explanation of the Northern Hemisphere freeze in the "Global Warming" HOAX. Not CO2, just HAARP. This experiment in real time demonstrates HAARP triggering an earthquake in the laboratory.
The US must not 'occupy' Haiti, declares French Minister
January 19, 2010 The UN must step in to ensure the US is not occupying Haiti in the wake of a devastating earthquake that may have killed 200,000 people. Cooperation Minister Alain Joyandet spoke as the country descended into anarchy. Aid is only just trickling through the 'bottleneck' at the country's airport, while angry Haitians desperate for help are striking out at international agenciesand each other.
10,00016,000 US troops are on the way to try to restore orderbut their role is being questioned. "This is about helping Haiti, not about occupying Haiti". . . Full story: dailymail.co.uk.
Comment: US corporations, private mercenaries, Washington and the International Monetary Fund are using the crisis in Haiti to make a profit, promote unpopular neoliberal policies, and extend military and economic control over the Haitians.
Note the starched, well-dressed looters. One wonders why Lt. General Ken Keen, US commander in Haiti, was stationed on the Island ahead of the earthquake, and if the US, having intervened in Haiti in the past, plans to establish a base on this "unsinkable aircraft carrier" from which it can dominate other countries in the region such as Nicaragua and Venezuela to enforce her "Monroe doctrine"!
US Security Company offers to perform "High Threat Terminations" and to confront "Worker Unrest" in Haiti
January 18, 2010 We saw this type of Iraq-style disaster profiteering in New Orleans and you can expect to see a lot more of this in Haiti over the coming days, weeks and months. Private security companies are seeing big dollar signs in Haiti thanks in no small part to the media hype about "looters." After Katrina, the number of private security companies registered (and unregistered) multiplied overnight. Banks, wealthy individuals, the US government all hired private security. I even encountered Israeli mercenaries operating an armed check-point outside of an elite gated community in New Orleans. They worked for a company called Instinctive Shooting International. (That is not a joke).
Now, it is kicking into full gear in Haiti. As we know, the member companies of the Orwellian-named mercenary trade association, the International Peace Operations Association, are offering their services in Haiti. But look for more stories like this one:
On January 15, a Florida based company called All Pro Legal Investigations registered the URL Haiti-Security.com. It is basically a copy of the company's existing US website but is now targeted for business in Haiti. . . Among the services offered are: "High Threat terminations," dealing with "worker unrest," armed guards and "Armed Cargo Escorts." Oh, and apparently they are currently hiring.

Psyche Warfare a Dumb Dumb Portrayal of Evil
This 2 hour and 22 minute video shows that the supposed holocaust of six million Jews in World War II is a giant myth, a myth which is parlayed today into the justification of war, and it exposes Jewish General Eisenhower's role in its creation. (The supposed holocaust of six million Jews claimed in World War II and the supposed holocaust (by Jewish-ruled USSR) of a further six million Jews claimed between the wars have since been revised from twelve (12) million to zero. Christians need to cleanse their souls of these and other myths such as the Gulf of Tonkin incident, Iraqi soldiers taking Kuwaiti babies out of incubators and throwing them on the ground, Australia's Port Arthur Massacre, Iraq's WMD, 9/11, 7/7, Bali and other bombings, Iran's nuclear ambitions, Northwest Airlines Flight 253, alleged Muslim terrorism, anthropogenic climate change, the Trinity, Easter, Christmas, SARS, bird 'flu, swine 'flu, the planned economic meltdown and scores of black ops and psyops. . .

Yellowstone hit by Swarm of Earthquakes
January 18, 2010 Yellowstone National Park has been rattled by more than 250 earthquakes in the past two days following a period of 11 months of quiet seismic activity in the park. The quakes have been gaining strength, with a 3.1 tremor recorded at 11:03am today. A 2.9 quake was recorded at 12:38pm. . . Prof. Robert B. Smith, a geophysicist at the University of Utah and one of the leading experts on earthquake and volcanic activity at Yellowstone, said that the activity is a "notable swarm" . . . located about 10 miles northwest of Old Faithful, Wyo., and nine miles southeast of West Yellowstone, Montana". . .
Smith said such swarms are "relatively common." Today's tremors seem to be normal tectonic activity, and is "not an indication" that some sort of volcanic activity will occur. Since 1995 there have been 80 swarms, including the one that started Sunday. . . The Yellowstone Plateau is one of the largest super-volcanoes in the world and has gone through three volcanic cycles spanning two million years, which included some of the world's largest known eruptions.

Comment: But this month there have been volcanic eruptions in Costa Rica, Congo, Guatemala, La Reunion, Ecuador, and most interestingly in Colombia. In his 1937 series of spiritual dreams in which he saw the sinking of Los Angeles, Joe Brandt said, "When I looked at the Grand Canyon, that great big gap was closing in, and Boulder Dam was being pushed, from underneath. And then, Nevada, and on up to Reno. Way down south, way down. Baja, California. Mexico too. It looked like some volcano down there was erupting, along with everything else. I saw the map of South America, especially Colombia. Another volcano—eruption—shaking violently. I seemed to be seeing a movie of three months before—before the Hollywood earthquake. Venezuela seemed to be having some kind of volcanic activity. Away off in the distance, I could see Japan, on a fault, too".

Colloidal Silver Banned in Europe
January 17, 2010 Silver, in all forms in food supplements, has become illegal to market in Europe from the 1st January 2010. . . Silver is one of the forms of minerals that have been unsuccessful so far in gaining a positive approval to be allowed for ongoing legal sale and this means that all silver products should have been removed from the shelves at the beginning of this year. This is Europe-wide and not just in the UK.
. . . there are moves all round the world, not just in Europe, to make it difficult to sell silver as a food supplement because it directly competes with the antibiotic market. Although, the official line is that there is insufficient data regarding safety and this is a consumer protection issue! Full story: blogspot.com
Obama Staffer wants 'Cognitive Infiltration' of 9/11 Conspiracy groups
January 13th, 2010 Cass Sunstein, a Harvard law professor, co-wrote an academic article entitled "Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures," in which he argued that the government should stealthily infiltrate groups that pose alternative theories on historical events via "chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine" those groups.
As head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Sunstein is in charge of "overseeing policies relating to privacy, information quality, and statistical programs," according to the White House Web site. . . Sunstein argued that "government might undertake (legal) tactics for breaking up the tight cognitive clusters of extremist theories." He suggested that "government agents (and their allies) might enter chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine percolating conspiracy theories by raising doubts about their factual premises, causal logic or implications for political action". . .

Comment: Big Brother will tell you what you will think. "And he had power to give life to [the USSA], the image of the beast [of Imperial Rome], that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause all who do not do obeisance to be killed. And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand [servility], or in their foreheads [the Trinitarian doctrine]: and that no man might buy or sell, but he who had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name" (Revelation 13:15-18).
Double Standards: How our Lawlessness strengthens our Enemies
January 8, 2010 We have failed to even investigate torturers, yet we have prosecuted and imprisoned millions for lesser offenses. And we allow mass murderers the benefit of constitutional rights that we deny detainees at Guantanamo Bay and elsewhere. Until policymakers examine and fix these double standards, they will continue to undermine our foreign policy, as well as our domestic criminal justice system.
We now know that the Bush administration's torture policies proved horrendously counterproductive, in more ways than one: they eroded our allies' trust, undermined the ability of our non-state supporters to credibly defend our goodwill, generated bad intelligence in the form of forcedand predictably falseconfessions, and undermined the morale of the professional interrogators who resisted their illegal (and idiotic) orders.
Worse yet, torture drove recruits into the arms of our enemies. According to veteran interrogators from multiple armed services, as well as the FBI, the number one reason militants flocked to Iraq was US torture of detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Abu Ghraib, Bagram Air Force Base, CIA black sites and the various foreign countries to which we continue to outsource torture through the extraordinary rendition program.
It was galling enough when, last year, all three branches of the federal government colluded to sweep evidence of torture under the rug. Confronted by thousands of abusive acts depicted in photossome as severe as outright rapeWashington united to protect its own. Acting at the behest of the CIA's discredited leadership, the administration lobbied Congress to amend a federal statute to grant the Defense Department an extraordinary authority to hide specific evidence of its own criminal trail, and the Supreme Court signed off on the deal.
Now, the double standard has come full circle . . . twice. . . Full story: truthout.org
EPA declares Mothers' Breath Toxic
January 8, 2010 The Carbon Sense Coalition today accused the Australian and US governments of ignoring real pollution problems while conducting a vendetta against an innocent bystander, carbon dioxide. It is a sick joke that the Australian EPA calls carbon dioxidethe gas of lifea pollutant, while the US EPA has declared the same harmless gas a health hazard.
Earth's atmosphere contains 386 ppm of CO2, whereas human exhalation contains 40,000 ppm, over 100 times as much. These asinine laws have thus effectively decreed that a mother's warm breath on her baby's face is a toxin. And still these imbeciles are not laughed out of court.
Meanwhile, Asia gasps in a brown cloud of real pollution like the smogs that smothered London and Pittsburgh in the 50's. The Asian smog is not caused by carbon dioxide. It comes from dirty combustionuncontrolled peat and forest fires in Indonesia, open air cremations and cow dung cooking in India, smoky mosquito repelling fires in SE Asia, rubbish dump fires, dust and ash from dirty old boilers and plants, and poor people everywhere scrounging dung, sticks, cardboard, coal, rags, waste oil and anything that burns for cooking and heating.
The London smog was cleared away with 'coal by wire'clean silent electric heating and lighting from distant steam generators.
Anyone concerned about Asian air pollution would be encouraging the construction of clean reliable modern power stations to replace a myriad of dirty open fires and old boilers. Instead, fools try to ration and tax a life-supporting, non-polluting, invisible, will-o-the-wisp like carbon dioxidefiddling while Asia burns. Maybe the people promoting the war on carbon dioxide should set a good example and cease exhaling. Full story: carbon-sense.com
The Whole Creation Groans in Travail Part III
We pass from Israel's rejection of Messiah in Zechariah 11 which we reviewed last week, past two thousand years of the Gentile dispensation to the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week and Israel's final deliverance and salvation in chapter 12. Modern Israel has been restored in a condition of unbelief as foretold in Isaiah 1, wherein non-Semitic "strangers are devouring and plundering everything they see." This was very much the state existing at the time of Christ's first advent, when the threads of God's dealings with that nation were finally dropped, not to be taken up again "until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled" and our silver thread of redemption is forever severed. Bypassing the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week, the prophecy opens with a fresh account of the great siege but goes on to reveal God's wonderful deliverance for David's City, however a complete restoration cannot take place until the national conversion (Zechariah 12:1013:9; Romans 11:25-32).
Only when his brethren were in the greatest straits did Joseph make himself known to them, and when Jerusalem is in its dire extremity, that memorable scene in the ancient land of the pyramids will be reproduced in all its pathos, when the long-rejected Brother shall say to His own after the flesh, "I am Jesus, your Brother whom you sold to Pilate; be not now grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that you delivered Me to be crucified: for God sent Me before you to preserve a remnant in the earth, and to save you by a great deliverance" (Genesis 45:1-15; Zechariah 13:6-9).
Zechariah 12:1-8 announces a threatening prediction that will distress Israel prior to her deliverance. In order to assuage doubt and build faith as to the fulfillment of the prophecy, Jehovah reminds Israel that He is not an absentee landlord but the ever-present Sustainer of His creation, daily stretching forth the heavens and laying the foundations of earth, which, were it not upheld by His almighty power, it would wander from its orbit into ruin. And as He formed our mortal spirit there are no restraints upon His ability continuously to mold the thoughts and intents of the heart in order to accomplish His purposes through men.
All the nations of earth will gather against Judah in the siege of Jerusalem. But the country of Judah like her capital will be a cup of trembling God administers to the invaders and the burden will overcome and rupture them politically as one who has overrated his own strength in lifting a stone too heavy for him suffers injury. Israel "fell" on Messiah, the rock of offense, and was "broken," but that rock will fall on Jerusalem's enemies and "grind them to powder" (Matthew 21:24; Daniel 2:44-45).
Whereas after Calvary and throughout the Six Trumpet Judgments during the Gentile dispensation God appeared to close His eyes to Israel's welfare and "smite her with insanity, and blindness, and bewilderment" (Deuteronomy 28:28). He now opens wide His eyes upon the house of Judah to see and provide for her needs while He smites their foes with precisely the same three plagues so that they destroy themselves (II Kings 6:18; Zechariah 14:12-13; Revelation 3:17-20).
Psalm 87:2, "The Lord loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob." The repulse of the foe from the metropolis shall assure Judah that the Most High who dwells in Jerusalem will also save them, and in consequence of this trust in the Divine election, consume their foes on every hand "as a torch of fire in a ripe sheaf".
The Israeli military and its atomic power will not be employed, for God chooses the weak to confound the mighty that all human glorying may be set aside, and His stand will be for the elect Israelites, not their enemy, the so-called Jews. Thus because of Judah's meek acknowledgment of dependence on Jerusalem, subordinate to His right arm, the Lord first saves the tents of Judah, weak and insecure, spread over the open country in order that the fortified capital may not lift itself above the defenseless land, that both Jerusalem and Judah may acknowledge the victory is the Lord's.
Daniel 7:8 represents antichrist as a horn growing out of the fourth Gentile world empire and dwells on his worldly conquests as a world ruler. John and Paul describe him as "that man of sin, the son of perdition," a spiritual tyrant called the false prophet "having a form of godliness while denying the authority of God's Word." What is briefly described by one prophet is more fully prophesied by the other. Joel 3:1-21 paints another picture of the end-time scenario described in Zechariah 12:1-14:21:
"On that day [neither Israeli military might nor power but] the Lord will defend and exalt the inhabitants of Jerusalem to a degree of strength far exceeding anything in their past history. Then the stumbler who can scarce hold himself up, much less attack a foe, will become a hero like David; and even David's house shall exceed its highest fame of old, and become like God, like the Angel of the Lord, who once marched at the head of the armies of Israel".
In Zechariah 12:9-14 Israel is seen at the end of the world standing alone in their relation to Him whom they rejected, and meditating upon the character of their great crime. Zechariah's description of the brave gallantry of the Israelites is a metaphor for the confidence of their new-found faith in Jehovah rather than valiant prowess in physical warfare, for the battle will be the Lord's. One thought occupies all minds, one feeling pervades all hearts. Each tribe, family and individual separates to weep in silence and solitude over the grievous infliction.
Zechariah 12:11, "In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon." The reference is to the lamentation over King Josiah who was mortally wounded "in the valley of Megiddo." He is introduced here as a type of Messiah because he was slain on account of the sins of the people; his reign was the closing manifestation of mercy on the part of the Lord; unspeakable misery followed immediately afterwards; the lamentation for his death rested upon the mingled feelings of love, and of sorrow for their own sins as the cause of his death.
This will be Israel's Day of Atonement when they afflict their souls in mourning for their murder of Messiah (Leviticus 23:27-32; Psalm 51). "On that day I will set Myself with determined earnestness to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem".
Brother Branham deals with these verses in An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages (pp. 36-42) where He speaks of the coming God, Jesus Christ:
Revelation 1:7, "Behold, He comes with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also who pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen".
He is coming. Jesus is coming. God is coming. The Prophet is coming. The Priest and King is coming. The ALL in ALL is coming. Even so, Lord Jesus, come quickly. Amen.
He is coming. He is coming in clouds, clouds of glory as when He was seen upon the Mount of Transfiguration, [that is, in the Shekinah (Matthew 24:3; 30-31) as in the sign of His imminent parousia seen over Arizona on February 28, 1963 and featured on the index page of our Church Website], and His garments were shining as the power of God enfolded Him. And EVERY eye shall see Him. That means this is not the Rapture [or translation]. This is when He comes to take over His rightful place as World Ruler (Zechariah 14:9). This is when those who have pierced Him with their denominational creeds and doctrines shall mourn, and all the people shall wail in terror because of Him Who is the Word.
[This is not the physical (Gk. 'erchomai') return of the glorified Jesus, for His precious feet will not touch this earth until He returns with the glorified saints of all Ages to step out on the atomic ashes of the wicked for the Millennium (Isaiah 13:9; 51:6; Daniel 2:44; Malachi 4:1-3). On that day there will be no one on earth to "see" His return (Nahum 1:5; Zephaniah 3:8). This is His (Gk. 'parousia') Coming to Israel in W_O_R_D form by the revelation of the Message of the two witnesses of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 after they have been martyred by Rome, Jewry and the US military.
Zechariah 12:10, "And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for His firstborn".
John 19:33-37, "When the soldiers came to Jesus, and saw that He was dead already, they did not break His legs: but one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and there came out blood and water. And he who saw it bore record, and his record is true: and he knows that he tells the truth, in order that you might believe. For these things were done, that the Scripture should be fulfilled, 'A bone of Him shall not be broken' (Exodus 12:46; Psalm 34:20). And again another Scripture said, They shall look on Him whom they pierced".
Note the change of person in the quotationfrom "Me whom" for "Him whom." In Zechariah it is Messiah who is speaking of Himself, while in John's Gospel the evangelist is speaking of Messiah.
There is a preliminary mourning at the crucifixion. Luke 23:46-48, "When Jesus had cried with a loud voice, He said, Father, into Your hands I commend My spirit: and having said this, He gave up the ghost. Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man. And all the multitudes who assembled to see the sight, when they saw what had taken place, returned home striking their breasts." But the real fulfillment began when the multitudes of Israelites and proselytes at Pentecost were "pricked in their heart" (Acts 2:37).
As I have said, this is not the visual (Gk. 'optomai') sighting of the glorified Man but of the sign of Christ's Presence (or Gk. 'parousia') Coming by faith signified by the Shekinah that will appear over the mount of Olives in the near future (Matthew 24:3, 23-31; Acts 1:6-11).
Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel will be the revelation of His invisible arrival and subsequent Presence with His elect in W_O_R_D form. Throughout the Seven Church Ages the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals, and because the saints had only PART-Word, Christ was a Mediator for their ignorance of the whole. The revelation of the mystery of the Seven Seals in 1963 brought Christ back to earth in WORD form through the spoken Word of His prophet, William Branham, for Christ is the fullness of the Word].
Brother Branham continues, "This is the revelation story of Zechariah 12:9-14. Zechariah prophesied this about 2,500 years ago. It is just about to take place. Listen. "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced. . ." Now, when is the Gospel returning to Israel? When the day of the Gentiles is finished. The Gospel is ready to go back to the Hebrews. Oh, if I could just tell you something that is about to happen right in this our day. This great thing that is about to happen will carry over to Revelation 11 and pick up those two witnesses, those two prophets, Moses and Elijah, turning the Gospel back to the Hebrews. [That "great thing" is Christ's parousia in the former or teaching rain under the ministry of two prophets to Israel, and the latter or harvest rain to the Gentile Bride]. We're ready for it. Everything is in order. [In the same manner] As the Hebrews brought the message to the Gentiles, even so the Gentiles will take it right back to the Hebrews, and the Rapture [or resurrection and translation] will come.
[As the born-again Hebrews brought the Message to us through the ministry of the prophet Paul in a time of apostasy and persecution. The Message will return to Israel through a prophetic ministry in a time of apostasy and persecution (Romans 11:29-32)].
Now, remember what we have read in Revelation and Zechariah. Both come right after the tribulation. [Brother Branham is speaking of the birth of Israel in one day after the first three and a half years of Daniel's Seventieth week]. The Church of the First-born does not go through the tribulation. We know that. The Bible teaches that.
At that time it says that God is going to pour out His Spirit upon the house of Israel. It is the same Spirit that was poured upon the Gentiles in their day. [By the former or teaching rain: "Faith comes by hearing and understanding the revealed Word for your day," making your life a written epistle of that part of the Word]. "And they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and they shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his first-born. In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadad-rimmon in the valley of Megiddon. And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart . . ." and each one of the houses apart when He comes in clouds of glory at His Second Coming. [This will be the fulfillment of the second purpose of Gabriel's sixfold instructions to Daniel regarding his Seventieth Week: "To make an end of sin," or unbelief in the revealed Word of GodDaniel 9:24].
Those Jews that pierced Him shall see Him as it says in chapter 13, "Whence did You get those wounds?" and He will say, "In the house of My friends." [This will be the fulfillment of the third purpose of Gabriel's sixfold instructions to Daniel regarding his Seventieth Week: "To make reconciliation for iniquity," or doing what you know is wrongDaniel 9:24].
Not only will it be a mournful time for the Hebrews who rejected Him as Messiah, but it will be a mournful time for those left of the Gentiles who have rejected Him as the Savior of this day.
There'll be weeping and wailing. The sleeping virgins will be wailing. They represent the church that refused to get oil (symbol of the Holy Spirit) in their lamps (symbol of the body or holder of the oil) until it was too late. It wasn't that they were not good people. They were virgins and that signifies a high moral order. But they didn't have oil in their lamps so they were cast out where there was wailing and gnashing of teeth. . ."
"The Bride will be taken off the earth. She will be caught up before the great tribulation to meet her Lord in the air. For three and one-half years while the retributive wrath of God is poured out, she will be in the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Then will He return [in W_O_R_D form by revelation of the Message of two prophets], leaving His Bride in "His Father's house," while He makes Himself known to His brethren. [This will be Christ's parousia Coming in the office of Son of man to regenerate the 144,000 elect Israelites in one day. Since Revelation 12:7-12 is in parenthesis describing the spiritual battle that ensues following Satan's expulsion from the heavenly realm, and verse 12 refers to the Third Woe and its devastating impact that will ultimately cause the consummation of life on land and sea (Revelation 8:13; 10:6), verses 13-17 should be read from Revelation 12:6. When Satan is cast down to earth he will persecute the whole house of Israel who return "into their place" in the Land of the Covenant at this time where they will be nourished Spiritually for three and a half years through the ministry of their two Hebrew prophets. "And if any man wants to harm them, Fire issues from their mouths, and consumes their enemies: should anyone wish to injure them, he must be killed in this way." At the end of their ministry Rome will break her covenant with the international Jews (Revelation 11:5-7; 17:16-17; Daniel 9:27
At this very time, the antichrist covenant that the Jews have made with Rome will be broken. Rome and her allies then send their troops ["as a flood"] to destroy all the God-fearing, Word-abiding Jews [Israelites (Revelation 12:15)]. But as they come against the city to destroy it, there will appear in the heavens the sign of the Coming of the Son of Man with His mighty armies to destroy them who have been destroying the earth (Revelation 11:18). With the enemy repulsed . . .
[How is "the enemy repulsed"? In Israel, he will be repulsed by an earthquake coinciding with the visible physical resurrection of Israel's two prophets. "And the earthquake helped the woman [Israel's elect] by swallowing seven thousand soldiers the Devil-incarnate pope had sent to destroy her. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." Then Rome will begin to force the mark of the beast and 144,000 will flee to the cleft of the Rock (Revelation 11:7-13; 12:15-17). Subsequently Russia will bomb Vatican City State and mainland USA (fulfilling the seventh of seven consecutive visions shown to Brother Branham in 1933), for at that time the banksters will side with Judaeo-Communist Russia which they created and financed at the cost of US and British taxpayers.
Daniel 12:1-9 is a variant of the vision that appeared on mount transfiguration (Matthew 17:1-8). Here we see Moses on the Old Testament side of Christ standing on the River of Life and Elijah on the New Testament side. Christ explains that after three and a half years their revelation of the Seven Trumpet mysteries, which were erstwhile sealed, will be complete and themselves martyred. This agrees with what Christ revealed to us in Revelation 12:7-17 and 13:1-9.
Daniel 12:10-13 tells us Rome will ban the animal sacrifices which the Jews restore immediately after the earthquake of Zechariah 14:4-5 destroys the Dome of the Rock at the dispensation change, and establish for herself a new desolating abomination to be worshipped (Revelation 11:1-3; 13:4-18). It also provides a timeline for the outcome of the prophetic ministry in the new birth of the elect Israelites who "endure unto the end" (Matthew 24:13; Revelation 13:10).
After the midst of the Week] "With the enemy repulsed, Jesus then comes and presents Himself to the 144,000. 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 all right. God was in it all. He did it to preserve life." Even so will Jesus speak peace and love to them.
Why did the Jews reject Jesus? God was in it all. It was the only way that He could bring out the Gentile Bride. He died on the cross to preserve the life of the Gentile Church.
Now these 144,000 are not in the Bride. In Revelation 14:4 they are called virgins and they follow the Lamb wherever He goes. The fact that they have not defiled themselves with women shows that they are eunuchs (Matthew 19:12). The eunuchs were the keepers of the bridal chambers. They were attendants. Notice that they do not sit in the throne but are before the throne. No, they are not in the Bride, but will be in the glorious millennial reign.
[Israel is God's servant nation, not the Bride of Messiah. These 144,000 elect cannot be in Christ's Bride because the marriage, our new birth, takes place during the Gentile dispensation, and "Israel is blinded until the Gentile dispensation is fulfilled" (Romans 11:25). There are individual Israelites in Christ's Bride, but the nation will be born in one dayall 144,000 of them].
We then see that when these last of Israel have been joined in love to the Lord, and the enemy has been destroyed [in the battle of Armageddon], God will prepare His holy mountain, His new Garden of Eden for the Bride and His and her attendants [the 144,000 elect Israelites] for the thousand year honeymoon upon the earth. As Adam and Eve were in the garden and did not finish out the thousand years, now Jesus our last Adam and His Eve (True Church) will fulfill all the plan of God.
Oh, how the Bible repeats itself. The scene of Joseph and his brethren is about to be repeated, for Jesus is coming [to Israel] soon.
. . . there is one more thing I want to bring to your attention about this end time. You recall that as Joseph stood before his brethren when Benjamin was not with them he spoke through an interpreter though he knew the Hebrew well. He spoke to his brethren in another tongue. Did you know that the first Gentile Age (the head of gold, Babylonian Age) went out with a message in tongues written on a wall? This age is going out the same way. The abundance of tongues in this day is a further proof that the Times of the Gentiles is over and God is turning back to Israel.
He is coming soon. The Alpha and Omega, the Prophet, Priest and King, the All in All, Lord God of Hosts, is coming soon. Even so Lord Jesus, the One and Only True God, come quickly! nl617.htm
