Bible Believers' Newsletter 620
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are so pleased you could join us in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
In this issue we teach on Zechariah 13 as we continue laying groundwork to discuss the earthquakes that will cleave the Mount of Olives and sink Los Angeles and a huge section of Earth's crust at the close of the Gentile dispensation, three days before the commencement of the first resurrection and the manifestation of the Sons of God.
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.

What the Muslim World can teach us about Nonviolence
February 5, 2010 It might be a bad dream, but it feels real enough. The mantle of warfare slips seamlessly from one president to another, from one party to another, from one decade to another, from one generation to another. The impetus of national aggression transcends race, creed, socioeconomic status, age and geography. Our collective sin is the bald lie that we all live and perpetuate from moment to moment, year upon year, from our past to the days ahead: the misbegotten belief that we are a peaceful people.
Yes, we are good and peaceful, and they (whatever "they" we're focused on today) are ruthless and evil. Institutionally, these values are operationalized every day. Drone attacks, propped-up murderers and dictators, weapons manufacturing and distribution, clandestine death squads, full-on warfare, neglect of starvation and disease, collateral damage, structural adjustments, black holes of torture, targeting civiliansthis is the essence of our foreign policy, and to borrow the frank words of Madeleine Albright when asked about the deaths of a half million Iraqis due to imposed sanctions, "we think the price was worth it." Since we operate in the name of democracy and freedom, all is forgiven. . .

Comment: As a student at Columbia University, Obama was recruited over 25 years ago by Zbigniew Brzezinski to be groomed as the president to succeed George W. Bush in 2008. In 1970, Brzezinski had recruited Jimmy Carter, the then unknown governor of Georgia, to be President in 1976, and foster the plans of the one-worlders; Obama is now his latest recruit for the completion of this plan for a world government.
Obama will not reduce the military, he will send more soldiers to Afghanistan, Pakistan, and even other nations. According to Tarpley, Brzezinski's objective is to have China and Russia eliminate each other in a war: "He looks at the neocons and he says: 'You bunglers. We gave you the clash of civilizations as an idea. What you should have done is to play these different countries one against the other. The essence of imperialism is that you don't attack Iraq, you play Iran against Iraq. You don't attack Venezuela, you play Colombia against Venezuela. You don't attack Somalia, you play Ethiopia against Somalia. And ultimately you don't attack Russia. You play China against Russia, or some variation of that'.
Now the heart of the Brzezinski strategy is this. Brzezinski looks at China. And he says: 'China can be manipulated through their raw material and oil dependency on Africa, and in particular Sudan. We know that now Sudan is supplying 7 to 8% of China's oil needs. What you have to do first of all is kick the Chinese out of Africa. . . And then you bomb and destroy Pakistan, because Pakistan is a traditional ally of China, an important economic partner of China'.
Now, the endgame is the following. Once you have stripped China of all of its allies, cut off their supply of oil and raw materials, destroyed any economic partners that they have, you've got China isolated. At that point the US will essentially say to China: 'If you want oil, you go get it in Eastern Siberia.' In other words: force the Chinese under a weakened government to try to look for oil and raw materials on Russian territory.
The oil wells of Eastern Siberia are of course therethey are very significant. There are very few Russians, lots and lots of oil, lots and lots of minerals. And that is Brzezinski's strategy" (Webster Tarpley, Obama, The Postmodern Coup, The Making of a Manchurian Candidate.
The aggression of apostate Christian nations against innocent Islam is intended to eliminate both Adamic peoples with whom Israel is at enmity. "Rejecting their Jewish past, Jews boast how they invented an America in the image of their own fiction, one that has come to be accepted throughout the world as the true image of the United States. Yet this prosperous, materialistic national image believed by Americans and the world is a virtual reality apprehended through the sorcery of Hollywood's silver screen . . . The Hollywood dream factory claims it created America on the silver screen. It brainwashes and hypnotizes the world with lies in behalf of the Moneypower that would rule the world in fulfillment of the Talmudic delusion of a Jewish master race" (Neal Gabler, An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews Invented Hollywood)".
"The dominant theme of Hollywood movies is America's divine right to invade other societies, steal their history and occupy our memory" (John Pilger).
Bush, Cheney and the Great Escape
February 5, 2010 With each passing day, it becomes more and more astonishing to encompass the fact that George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and their henchmen from the prior administration have managed thus far to escape any accounting whatsoever for the massive battery of criminal activity committed during their time in office. More than a year has passed since these men had their hands on the levers of power, and evidence of their myriad crimes and frauds is laying all over the countryside, yet nothing has come of it.
A senior Welsh MP said last night he knew "for certain" Tony Blair and George Bush struck a deal to invade Iraq at their notorious Crawford Ranch meeting in 2002a year before war was declared.
The truth of the matter is plain enough. Yoo and Bybee are not going to turn themselves in. Neither are any of the other actors in this gruesome play. If any measure of justice is going to be achieved, it will fall upon Congress, President Obama and his Department of Justice to get it done . . .
Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove, Perle, Feith, Wolfowitz, Rice, and a dozen other members of the Bush administration, including Yoo and Bybee, are directly responsible for this carnage. They lied through their teeth and broke any number of laws to see it done. They are guilty of much more than the war crimes they committed in both Iraq and the United States. They are guilty of bankrupting this nation with two wars begun on false pretenses and perpetuated to enrich the few, while further cementing the stranglehold "defense spending" has on our growth as a civilized nation . . .

Haiti: still starving 23 Days Later
February 5, 2010 You can walk down many of the streets of Port-au-Prince and see absolutely no evidence that the world community has helped Haiti.
Twenty-three days after the earthquake jolted Haiti and killed over 200,000 people as many as a million people have still not received any international food assistance. . . Flavia Cherry, of the Caribbean Association for Feminist Research and Action, this week witnessed a pregnant, double amputee give birth on the ground in one of the tent camps without any medical assistance at all. "This poor mother had nothing, no milk, no clothing for the baby, nothing!"
The World Food Program reported prices are still rising and people outside the earthquake zone are having difficulty meeting their basic food needs. Full story: truthout.org
Uganda rejects Obama's Pro-homosexual "Change"
February 8, 2010 Ugandan Christian minister Martin Ssempa has issued a strong rebuttal to President Obama's criticism of his country for considering passage of a law to discourage and punish certain homosexual practices. "Sodomy is neither the change we want nor can believe in" . . . Ssempa, a major player in the country's successful anti-AIDS program, says that Obama has an "obsession with the spread of sodomy in Africa," in contrast to the efforts of the George W. Bush Administration to help Uganda resist the dangerous sexual practices which facilitate the spread of the deadly disease. The Ugandan anti-AIDS program has emphasized abstinence and monogamy . . .

The issue is consideration of a piece of legislation to discourage homosexual practices in Uganda.
"Many Ugandans are shocked at the reaction to this bill and the extent to which homosexual activists can intimidate everyone to silence," leading pro-family activist in Uganda, Charles Tuhaise said. "This is a bill written to control a problem that has largely gotten out of hand in western society and is now spreading tentacles worldwide. Perhaps Uganda has helped to highlight the danger that the homosexual movement poses to the world". . .

Britain's Suicide Note
January 22, 2010 We had the greatest empire the world has ever known and, having turned it into a Commonwealth, with The Queen as its Head, we subsequently turned our backs on its 54 countries, with a population of about a billion people, by abandoning Commonwealth preferential trade, in favour of the so-called advantages of local trade in Europe.
We have also given up our own sovereignty, or the right to be an independent nation with its people choosing their government and removing that government, when necessary. Instead, about 72% of our laws come directly from Brussels and are incorporated into our legal system without us being able to do anything about it. Our politicians call this "sharing sovereignty" which is nonsense . . . We have given up our democratic right to govern ourselves in favour of being governed by permanent, un-elected and un-removable bureaucrats, deciding our future from headquarters in Brussels.
We have given up our financial independence and even sold two-thirds of our gold reserves at $280 per ounce, and switched into euros, to show solidarity, and loyalty, to our new masters, the European Union. We now pay about £50m per day to those bureaucrats for the "privilege" of being governed by them. . . Full story: alor.org
Comment: World is becoming an insane killing field to annihilate Adam's deceived children with war, famine, disease and miscegenation with the children of Cain (Revelation 6:8; Matthew 24:37).
According to The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, "The president will, at our discretion, interpret the sense of such of the existing laws as admit of various interpretation; he will further annul them when we indicate to him the necessity to do so, besides this, he will have the right to propose temporary laws, and even new departures in the government constitutional working, the pretext both for the one and the other being the requirements for the supreme welfare of the State.
By such measure we shall obtain the power of destroying little by little, step by step, all that at the outset when we enter on our rights, we are compelled to introduce into the constitutions of States to prepare for the transition to an imperceptible abolition of every kind of constitution, and then the time is come to turn every form of government into OUR DESPOTISM.
The recognition of our despot may also come before the destruction of the constitution; the moment for this recognition will come when the peoples, utterly wearied by the irregularities and incompetencea matter which we shall arrange forof their rulers, will clamor: "Away with them and give us one king over all the earth who will unite us and annihilate the causes of disordersfrontiers, nationalities, religions, State debtswho will give us peace and quiet which we cannot find under our rulers and representatives."
But you yourselves perfectly well know that to produce the possibility of the expression of such wishes by all the nations it is indispensable to trouble in all countries the people's relations with their governments so as to utterly exhaust humanity with dissension, hatred, struggle, envy and even by the use of torture, by starvation, by the inoculation of diseases, by want, so that the "Goyim" see no other issue than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty in money and in all else.
But if we give the nations of the world a breathing space the moment we long for is hardly likely ever to arrive" (Protocol 10:16-20). Does this sound familiar?
"The errors of the Goyim governments will be depicted by us in the most vivid hues. We shall implant such an abhorrence of them that the peoples will prefer tranquility in a state of serfdom to those rights of vaunted freedom which have tortured humanity and exhausted the very sources of human existence, sources which have been exploited by a mob of rascally adventurers who know not what they do . . . useless changes of forms of government to which we instigated the "Goyim" when we were undermining their state structures, will have so wearied the peoples by that time that they will prefer to suffer anything under us rather than run the risk of enduring again all the agitations and miseries they have gone through" (Protocol 14:1). Have you recognized this activity?
David Rockefeller infamously stated at a 1991 Bilderberg Group meeting: "The supra-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries." No one needs conspiracy theories when the perpetrators are this blatant.
The Whole Creation Groans in Travail Part IV
People of the belligerent modern Israel State are mainly non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews or Semitic Palestinians plus a few blood Israelites who are treated as third class citizens. The Jews are realists convinced of the inevitability of war (of their own making), armed to the teeth by ignorant nominally Christian colonials of 'the City of London' and occupied Germany. They live under the delusion of victory, but two thirds of them will be exterminated or flee Israel as they fled Europe, allowing genuine Israelites who return to the land of the Covenant for their redemption to inherit the material civilization constructed by the Jews' as Israelites under Joshua took possession of the material civilization built by their Canaanite and Hittite forebears.
After three and a half years when Rome breaks her agreement with the banksters, the Jews and their Black Nobility will forsake a revived 'Holy' Roman empire for Judaeo-Communist Russia, and utterly destroy Vatican City State and the United States, triggering Armageddon and the consummation of life (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 18:1-20). Brother Branham said, "Women, given the right to vote, elected President-elect Kennedythe woman's vote. The wrong man, which will finally be to full control of the Catholic church in the United States; then the bomb comes that explodes her. . . No wonder the vision of the Lord says here that I saw it finally come to a spot where she was just one big smoldering heap. She was blown up. . ." (Hybrid Religion, p. 6:6; 21:7). Long ago Israel threatened every European capital with nuclear annihilation under their "Sampson option," forgetting that Sampson was not a Jew but an Israelite anointed of the Lord.
Talmudic Jews under the delusion they are Israelites regard non-Jews as insects to be crushed, or human cattle to be culled with impunity, whose possessions belong to the master race. Contrary to Moses, they claim the boundaries of 'greater' Israel run from the river Nile to the river Euphrates, embracing most of Egypt's arable land, all of Jordan, Lebanon and Kuwait, parts of Turkey and much of Saudi Arabia, Syria and Iraq. God commanded Moses and the Israelites, whom Jews impersonate, "You shall not covet . . . anything that belongs to your neighbour" (Exodus 20:17). "Covetousness is idolatry" (Colossians 3:5; Zechariah 13:2), the besetting sin of this people (Exodus 32:1-4). "Willing to justify himself, [the rich young Jew] asked Jesus, Who is my neighbour" (Luke 10:29)? These
racist supremacist impersonators consider only fellow Jews as their neighbours; whereas Jesus Messiah stated, any other man with whom we live or whom we chance to meet, irrespective of race or religion, is our neighbour. Jews regard the Jewish people as their own Messiah, and that according to the Talmud and The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, they will one day rule the world from Jerusalem, as per Illuminati plans for Lucifer's totalitarian one world order espoused by modern Israel's first Prime Minister, David ben Gurion (Isaiah 14:12-17; Daniel 11:45; Look Magazine, January 16, 1962). But Brother Branham said, "I believe one of these days when the united confederation of church goes together and the new pope is brought out of the United States and put over there [Jerusalem] according to prophecy, then they'll form an image like unto the beast" (Acts of the Holy Spirit, p. 12:87). For the times of the Gentiles" extend to the consummation of life (Daniel 9:27).
The tragic deficiency of Israelis is hubris: the presumption they are the lineal blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the assumption that they are a Semitic people, the pretense that Judaism is the faith of Moses and the Old Testament prophets, and that Israel is not now and will not remain under Gentile dominion. They are themselves natural Israel's sworn enemy (Genesis 27:39-41), whose elect they will martyr as converts to their Roman Catholic church.
The genuine 144,000 elect Israelites will be born-again and purged during the Great Tribulation and surrender their lives in Christian martyrdom as Daniel 12:7, Matthew 27:25, Revelation 6:11, 12:17 and 14:1-5 foretell. Israeli self-styled Jews overlook the fact modern Israel will be overrun at the end of the Gentile dispensation and two thirds of her population cut off, that is to say, extinguished, while the elect Israelites will be "brought through the refining Fire of God's Holy Spirit and their newfound faith in Jesus Messiah tried unto death" (Zechariah 13:9; Matthew 23:39; Revelation 6:11; 16:19).
All 144,000 elect natural Israelites must come to revelation and repent. This following the death and resurrection of the two Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week (Revelation 11:3-7) as foretold in Zechariah 12:10 13:1, "And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication: and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced (Matthew 27:25), and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one who is in bitterness for his firstborn. In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon. And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the [royal] family of the House of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of [David's son] Nathan apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of [Levi's grandson] Shimei apart, and their wives apart; all the remaining families, every family apart, and their wives apart".
"In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the House of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem [signifying the whole nation] for sin and for uncleanness"as the Levites were once sprinkled with water mixed with the ashes of a red heifer as a purification from sin (Numbers 8:7; 19:17), and the people were sprinkled to remove uncleanness when they were contaminated by contact with death as Israel is defiled by their deicide of Messiah. This Old Testament ritual was a natural type of Ephesians 5:26, "sanctification and cleansing with the washing of water by the Word" or revelation which cleanses the soul from sin. Zechariah refers to the third of the sixfold purpose of Gabriel's visit in Daniel 9:24, "to make reconciliation for iniquity" which must be fulfilled in Daniel's Seventieth Week in order to return the nation to Divine fellowship and bring in the glorious Millennial reign when the Kingdom will be restored to Israel (Acts 1:6; Isaiah 9:7).
Our type is Genesis 44 45 where Joseph spoke in a strange tongue and addressed his brethren through an interpreter, dismissing his servants and sending his wife and children into the palace before he revealed himself as the one they had sold to slavers, causing their father to believe he was dead. When confronted by their evil his brothers made reconciliation for iniquity. Before the first Gentile world kingdom fell, the hand of God spelled out its doom in unknown tongues on the wall of Belshazzar's palace which He interpreted through His prophet Daniel. Before the last Gentile world kingdom falls He has revealed Rome's doom by interpreting the unwritten voices of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10, unveiling the Seventh Seal and "finishing the mystery of God" through His prophet William Branham. And Christ's Bride will be translated and His two servants dismissed (Revelation 11:7-12) before His brethren can recognize the One they pierced standing in the air by revelation of His 'parousia' Coming (Zechariah 14:4; Matthew 24:3, 30-31) and "make reconciliation for iniquity".
After Brother Branham read Zechariah 13:1, he said, "There shall be a house open"a clear reference to Ezekiel 43:1-12 where this ancient sage saw the Shekinah return to a "House not made with hands," the House of Israel, the Millennium Temple of 144,000 glorified Israelites indwelt by the Spirit of the Lord.
Speaking of His 'parousia' Coming to Israel Jesus said, "Then will the sign of the Son of man be shown in the sky: and all the tribes of the earth mourn when they are pricked in their conscience [three and a half years later] by their belated revelation that the Son of man has come in the cloud of the Shekinah with power and great glory" (Matthew 24:30; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7).
The "fountain" was dug or pierced in Jesus' side on Calvary's cruel Cross, but to Israel it was "a fountain sealed" (Song of Songs 4:12; Psalm 36:9) by unbelief preached by their Talmudic rabbis (Matthew 15:9). Now it is to be thrown open to pour forth its Life-giving waters upon penitent Israelites in response to their faith, and Israel will be born-again as a nation in one day, "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem" (Isaiah 66:8; Zechariah 12:3-9; 13:2). This is an exposition of the final deliverance and salvation of Israel that will take place in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week as foretold in Zechariah 12.
The following six verses announce the complete extirpation of idolatry and immorality, the chief and most dangerous sins throughout the history of the Old Covenant people, such that they will shudder at the mention of the names of those idols. "[False] prophets" are those who speak in the Name of the Lord without the authority of THUS SAITH THE LORD as apparent from their association with idols and "the spirit of uncleanness." The Talmud's satanic verses and Judaism (or Pharisaism) are idolatry and false prophecy since the Logos alone is God (Matthew 15:1-9), and the punishment of false prophets proscribed in Deuteronomy 18:20 is emphatic, thus their zealous parents will be the first to slay them (Matthew 10:34-41; Luke 12:51-53). So these pretenders will be ashamed of their unauthorized prophecies and strip off the outward hair cloth mantle worn as "wolves in sheep's clothing" to act out a parable of repentance and righteous grief for the sins they were supposedly commissioned to reprove.
One such deceiver, seized by some zealous vindicator of the Law and charged with his crime seeks to deny it claiming, "I have been a shepherd from my youth," an occupation inconsistent with that of a prophet. The interrogator still suspects him and questions, "If you have never pretended to be a prophet, whence come those wounds between your hands?" His hands, upheld to ward off blows, were "thrust through" (Zechariah 13:3). And while the usual punishment was to stone; "thrusting through" was also a fit retribution on one who tried to "thrust Israel away" from the Lord (Deuteronomy 13:10) and perfects the type of Messiah who was condemned as a false prophet, and pierced with "wounds between His hands." Thus the transition to the direct prophecy of Jesus in Zechariah 13:7 is natural, which it would not be were He not alluded to in the type.
"Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends" an implied admission that he had pretended to prophesy, and that his friends had wounded him in godly zeal (Zechariah 13:3). The Holy Spirit in Zechariah alludes indirectly to Messiah, the Antitype, wounded by those whom He came to befriend and who as His kinsmen ought to have been His "loving friends" (Mark 3:21; John 1:11; 7:5; Romans 9:5), but who wounded Him by the agency of Rome, their priests and elders (Zechariah 12:10; Luke 22:2; John 5:18; 7:1).
Zechariah passes from recounting the evasions of a pretender after the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week to a dramatic representation of the divine affliction of the good Shepherd now confronting the elect 144,000 in their revelation of His parousia wherein they recognize it was the will of God Himself that Messiah be "thrust through" in substitution for the sheep in order to be their Kinsman Redeemer [John 19:11; Acts 2:22-23). The immediate result fulfilled His type as Joseph explained to his brethren, "be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that you sold me hither: for God sent me before you to preserve life".
Zechariah 13:7-9, "Awake, O sword, against My Shepherd, and against the Man that is My Fellow, [Equal, right hand Man or Associate], says the Lord of hosts: [I will] smite the Shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered: and I will cause My hand to return in grace for good upon the little ones. And it will come to pass that two thirds of Israel will be cut off and die; but the third will be left in the land, says the Lord. But I will bring the remaining third into the fire of the great tribulation, and make them pure as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tried. They will call on My Name [when Rome and her allies send their troops to destroy all the God-fearing, Word-abiding Jews after she breaks her covenant with the Jewish banksters], and I will answer: This is My people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God".
The reference is to Jehovah's "Shepherd" and Equal, the perfect Man in whom is no fault, against the "foolish shepherds" of Zechariah 11:15 and 17. It resumes the prophecy of His betrayal in Zechariah 11:4, 10, 13 and 14, Israel's subsequent punishment, and why He who came to be a blessing was cut off while bestowing the blessing. The smiting of Messiah caused His disciples to forsake Him (Matthew 26:31) and scattered His elect Judean sheep (Zechariah 11:4; Romans 11:7), not the Judas goats but the "wretched of the flock" (Zechariah 11:7, 11) escaping Jewish persecution, to spread the Gospel within their hearts by the universal language of Greek along Roman roads to the far corners of empire.
After the end of the Gentile dispensation Jehovah's "Shepherd" will return in Daniel's Seventieth Week to gather 144,000 "little ones." And as Benjamin was born of Joseph's blood father and mother while he was "saving" the Gentile world "from a famine of bread, and a thirst for water," marrying his Gentile Bride and "training their offspring in the way they should go, so they will not depart from it" (Proverbs 22:6), when Christ returns to Israel His "little ones" will not be self-styled Jews but blood Israelites descended from the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, born while He was absent "saving" the Gentiles "from a famine of hearing the Word of the Lord" (Amos 8:11). He has married His Gentile Bride, and when the last of His offspring is reborn, God's promise that Abraham should be "the father of the Gentiles," will be fulfilled (Genesis 17:5; Galatians 3:29). Then two thirds of Israel's present population will be cut off and die and the third will be refined and justified by testings as severe as those to which precious metals are subjected (Malachi 3:2-6). Because the Lord claims them as His people, they will claim Him as their God when they receive the revelation of Christ's parousia (Zechariah 8:8; Jeremiah 24:7; Hosea 2:23). nl620.htm
