Bible Believers' Newsletter 723
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the wonderful Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
With Ezekiel 38 and 38 so close to hand our past two Newsletters introduced the antitype of Israel's "Feast of Trumpets" which will fulfill the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week wherein the Hebrew prophets of Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11 will call 144,000 elect Israelites to their true Atonement in Jesus Messiah by the revelation of the mysteries of the Seven Trumpet judgments and the Seven Vials. We have studied the Scriptures from which Brother Branham drew a context for his teaching, and today we will study the first part of his exposition. If you do not have the book I suggest you download and follow this transcript of his Message, "The Feast of the Trumpets".
As we are living at the very terminus of the end-time when Scripture is coming to pass in the daily news misrepresented by those who control global media, do not satisfy yourself with the précis in our news items but read the full story in all of the links to be sure you understand the present Truth of Scriptures coming to pass now. This is the love of God to you. "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love" (I John 4:18). Faith is the certain sound of a clear understanding of the Gospel Trumpet that dissolves doubt, brings God's Word to remembrance and shows you things that are to come (John 16:13). Doubt and uncertainty of things unknown generates fear which enslaves its victims to the lying propaganda of the City of London, to harness free energy from the lives of colonial serfs in Britain, USA, Canada, Australia, etc., and in the occupied territories of Israel, Germany, Japan, Iraq, etc., into a belligerent force to accomplish the ruthless agenda framed in The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and foretold in God's Holy Bible.
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.
Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott
Against Hollywoodism, Revisionism
February 3, 2012 The term Hollywoodism refers to the transformation, often mendacious, of reality by the spirit and practices of a whole sphere of American cinema. At first, I shall discuss the evil in general done by Hollywoodism. Secondly, I shall describe the wrongs of Hollywoodism in the shaping of the imposture of "the Holocaust," that is in building the myth of genocide, gas chambers and six million Jews killed by the Germans during the Second World War. Finally, in a third and last part I shall speak of Revisionism as the antidote par excellence to Hollywoodism and its incessant, aggressive publicity for the religion of "the Holocaust". . .
Hollywood, along with British cinema and Soviet propaganda, had a terrible and direct responsibility both in the lies attending what was called the discovery of the German concentration camps (1945) and in the ignoble "lynching party" (the phrase is that of Harlan Fiske Stone, Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court at the time) that was the Nuremberg trial (1945-1946), where the winners of the war, in coalition, made themselves judges and jury to try the defeated. It is altogether true that in 1945 even a privileged concentration camp like that of Bergen-Belsen offered a nightmarish vision. But the horrors discovered there were not created by the Germans. They were due to the war and, in particular, an air war conducted mercilessly, to the end, by the Allies against . . . civilians. It took a fine cynicism to show those horrors and point an accusing finger at the defeated when the ones mainly responsible were the US Air Force and the Royal Air Force. In April 1945, no longer able to manage, the commandant of Bergen-Belsen, SS captain Josef Kramer, sent some men to meet the advancing troops of British Marshal Montgomery and warn them that they were approaching a terrible den of infection, and that they should not immediately release the prisoners lest they contaminate the civilian population and the British soldiers. The British agreed to work with the Wehrmacht. Once on the site, they kept the detainees there and tried to treat them but mortality remained appalling high for a long time. The British wanted to know how many inmates were buried in the mass graves. They extracted the corpses and counted them; then, using a bulldozer, a British officer pushed the bodies towards six large ditches where the soldiers forced female SS guards to cast them in with their bare hands. But this reality was very soon transformed by the film propaganda services, which had people believe that the bodies were those of people killed in an alleged extermination programme. A photograph taken from a plane and showing the bulldozer from afar made it possible to convey the impression that the vehicle was driven by a German soldier performing his daily work as an employee of a death factory. In one case, a photo taken from up close showed the bottom of the machine pushing corpses but "beheaded" the driver so that, with him not appearing as a Briton, it was reckoned he was a German. The Americans went on to make more and more falsifications of this kind. The American general Eisenhower, supreme Allied commander, was the impresario of this intensified Hollywoodism. . .
"The alleged Hitlerite gas chambers and the alleged genocide of the Jews form one and the same historical lie, which has permitted a gigantic political and financial swindle whose main beneficiaries are the State of Israel and international Zionism and whose main victims are the German peoplebut not their leadersand the Palestinian people in their entirety". . .

Iran condemns Zionists' Claim on Georgia, India Explosion
February 14, 2012 Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast condemned Zionist regime's claim on Iran's involvement in attacks against the regime's embassies in India and Georgia. He said the claim was made in line with launching psychological war, adding, "We condemn any terrorist attack."
"Iran is the biggest victim of terrorism and that countries supporting terrorist actions and Zionist regime openly should be blamed," he told al-Alam News Channel. "These countries should clarify why they back terrorist groups' measures and crimes in Iran and other regional countries and have excluded the groups from their blacklists," Mehmanparast continued.
"Zionist regime whose establishment is based on terrorism, crime and occupation is the key defendant and, we believe that the root of terrorism should be annihilated through an international movement."
"Zionist regime accused Iran of being behind twin bomb attacks that targeted its embassy staff in India and Georgia on Monday which led to injury of four people. Also Israeli embassy car was targeted in the explosion and a Zionist embassy official was wounded. Zionist regime said that the planted bomb in its mission building in Georgia was discovered and defused". Full story: isna.ir

SYRIA: CIA-MI6 Intel Ops and Sabotage
February 7, 2012 For anyone in two minds about what is really going on in Syria, and whether President Assad, hailed a decade ago as "A Modern Day Attaturk," has become the latest megalomaniacal despot, to whose people a US-led posse of nations, must deliver "freedom," with weapons of mass, home, people, nation and livelihood destruction, here is a salutary tale from modern history.
Have the more recent sabre rattlings against Syria been based on US-UK government papers, only discovered in 2003and since air brushed (or erroneously omitted) from even BBC timelines, on that country?
In late 2003, the year of the Iraq invasion, Matthew Jones, a Reader in International History, at London's Royal Holloway College, discovered "frighteningly frank" documents: 1957 plans between then UK Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan, and then President, Dwight Eisenhower, endorsing: "a CIA-MI6 plan to stage fake border incidents as an excuse for an invasion (of Syria) by Syria's pro-western neighbours."
At the heart of the plan was the assassination of the perceived power behind then President Shukri al-Quwatli. Those targeted were: Abd al-Hamid Sarraj, Head of Military Intelligence; Afif al-Bizri, Chief of Syrian General Staff: and Khalid Bakdash, who headed the Syrian Communist Party.
The document was drawn up in Washington in the September of 1957:
"In order to facilitate the action of liberative (sic) forces, reduce the capabilities of the regime to organize and direct its military actions . . . to bring about the desired results in the shortest possible time, a special effort should be made to eliminate certain key individuals.
"Their removal should be accomplished early in the course of the uprising and intervention, and in the light of circumstances existing at the time."
In the light of President Assad's current allegations of foreign forces and interventions, cross border incursions (as Colonel Qadafi's before him, so sneered at by Western governments and mediaand, of course, ultimately proved so resoundingly correct.) there are some fascinating, salutary phrases:
"Once a political decision has been reached to proceed with internal disturbances in Syria, CIA is prepared, and SIS (MI6) will attempt to mount minor sabotage and coup de main (sic) incidents within Syria, working through contacts with individuals.
"Incidents should not be concentrated in Damascus . . . care should be taken to avoid causing key leaders of the Syrian regime to take additional personal protection measures."
Further: a "necessary degree of fear . . . frontier incidents and (staged) border clashes," would "provide a pretext for intervention," by Iraq and Jordanthen still under British mandate.
Syria was to be: "made to appear as sponsor of plots, sabotage and violence directed against neighbouring governments . . . the CIA and SIS [Her Majesty's Secret International Service, MI6] should use . . . capabilities in both psychological and action fields to augment tension."
Incursions in to Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon, would involve: "sabotage, national conspiracies, and various strong arms activities," were, advised the document, to be blamed on Damascus.
In late December 2011 an opposition "Syria National Council" was announced, to "liberate the country," representatives met with Hilary Clinton. There now seems to be a USendorsed "Syrian Revolutionary Council."
The Eisenhower-Macmillan plan was for funding of the: "Free Syria Committee" and "arming of political factions with paramilitary or other actionist capabilities," within Syria.
CIA-MI6, planned fomenting internal uprisings and replacing the Ba'ath-Communist-leaning government, with a Western, user-friendly one. Expecting this to be met by public hostility, they planned to: "probably need to rely first on repressive measures and arbitrary exercise of power."
The document was signed off in both London and Washington. It was, wrote Macmillan in his diary: "a most formidable report." A Report which was: "withheld even from British Chiefs of Staff . . ." Full story: globalresearch.ca
Comment: As Jesus spoke of the "rogue nation" in Revelation 13"the Terrorists R US"! Had the Allies supported Hitler rather than the banksters of the 'City of London' they would have eliminated Judaeo-Communism. Now Obama has openly allied with the CIA's al-Qaeda against Syria, which makes a mockery of fingering al Qaeda for the CIA/MOSSAD 9/11 false flag op. The major source of funding for the Taliban is likely the Department of Defense itself, estimated around $400 million per year, which is funneled to Afghan "security" companies as "protection payments," for allowing the massive and constant ground traffic of convoys of supplies for US bases to crisscross the country, unhindered by attacks. So says a report, "Warlord Inc.," by a House subcommittee chaired by Rep. John Tierney. . . Taliban insurgents draw some $125m/yr from drugs, which is more money than ten years ago, . . . The "burn rate" for the occupation, the military's term for the rate of spending, is over $8 billion a month or $10 million every hour, making it the most expensive war in US history . . . borrowed from the banksters in behalf of BIG OIL which is owned by the banksters! It is all about oil, which keeps the USD and usury afloat.
On February 5, 2012Reuters reported, "Tunisia "to withdraw recognition" of Syria government," and specifically that newly appointed Tunisian president Moncef Marzouki made the announcement on his Facebook page. Reuters also notes "Tunisia's decision to sever ties with Damascus carries moral weight because the north African country's revolution last year started off the "Arab Spring" upheavals which later spread throughout the Middle East, including to Syria." What Reuters [i.e. Rothschilds] of course fails to mention is that the "Arab Spring" was engineered years in advance, planned, funded, and directed by the US State Department, with Moncef Marzouki a direct recipient on record of such support which ultimately paved his way from obscurity to now president of the North African nation. US State Department spokesman Mark Toner stated, "We're not working to undermine that [Syrian] government. What we are trying to do in Syria, through our civil society support, is to build the kind of democratic institutions, frankly, that we're trying to do in countries around the globe. What's different, I think, in this situation is that the Syrian government perceives this kind of assistance as a threat to its control over the Syrian people."
Toner's remarks came after the Washington Post released cables indicating the US has been funding Syrian opposition groups since at least 2005 and continued until today.
In an April 2011 AFP report, Michael Posner, the assistant US Secretary of State for Human Rights and Labor, stated that the "US government has budgeted $50 million in the last two years to develop new technologies to help activists protect themselves from arrest and prosecution by authoritarian governments."
More on Syria, the duplicity of the UN Security Council and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. Consider US/UK/NATO double standards when dealing with the Arab revolts in Bahrain, which hosts a US Naval base and Libya, which was a sovereign nation with a central bank independent of Rothschild and a beneficent leader.
Anyone with an ounce of the Holy Spirit will see, as Brother Branham said: "The iniquity of the Amorite denomination, that's called themselves the church so long, till their iniquity is about fulfilled. There's coming an exodus where God will show who's who, where the church itself, the Bride of Jesus Christ will be exodused out into the land that's promised: in My Father's House are many mansions in this place. . ."
"[The United States] appears in Revelations 13, number thirteen. And remember, it raised up like a lamb: freedom of religion; but then it received power from the beast, an image like it. And he spoke with all the authority and done the same rotten things the beast [of Imperial Rome] did before him. Then tell me it's not prophesied of this nation."
"The Amorite condition is just about ripe, 'cause they're already working in it. And even our new pope, his main purpose is to unite the brethren together. And to the natural eye, it's the thing to do. But in the eyes of God, it's contrary to the Holy Spirit. We can't mix up with that. And every church will be caught into that federation. Get out of that thing as quick as you can. And you'll take the mark of the beast [of papal Rome, which is trinitarianism], not knowing what you're doing. Get out of it. . ."
"The first exodus, what did He do? He brought them out of a natural land to a natural land. The second exodus, He brought them out from a spiritual condition into a Spiritual baptism of the Holy Ghost. Now He's bringing them from a Spiritual baptism of the Holy Ghost, right back into the eternal land of the millennium and the great hereafter. Same Pillar of Fire by the same anointed system, the same God doing the same things; and the same Word declared the first one, declared the second one. The same Word declared the second one has declared the third one, and here we see it among us. Come out. Oh, come out of this chaos. Come to the living God. Come to the Word. "And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us." And now, He's in our flesh, dwelling among us. Come out and serve the living God, while we bow our heads" (The Third Exodus, p. 19:2; 18:5-7; 45:6).
Dereliction of Duty II: Senior Military Leaders' Loss of Integrity wounds Afghan War Effort
January 27, 2012 An analysis by Lt. Col. Daniel Davis, which the US Army has not approved for public release but has leaked to Rolling Stone magazine, provides the most authoritative refutation thus far of the official military narrative of success in the Afghanistan War since the troop surge began in early 2010.
In the 84-page unclassified report, Davis, who returned last fall after his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, attacks the credibility of claims by senior military leaders that the US-NATO war strategy has succeeded in weakening the Taliban insurgent forces and in building Afghan security forces capable of taking primary responsibility for security in the future...

Comment: Inept and deceptive claims by senior military leaders that the US-NATO war strategy has succeeded in either Iraq or Afghanistan. Parents, your sons and incredibly, your daughters, are fighting the world for Rome and the 'City of London' on credit borrowed from banksters of the 'City of London'repayable at usury by their great, great grandchildren as tax slaves in order to subjugate Third World countries and steal their resources, prior to attacking Russia and China. The objective? Lucifer's totalitarian one world government.
US Satellite Detection of Portable Nuclear Weapons
November 7, 2001 "If an internal nuclear attack ever occurs in this country without a major failure of our satellite assets...perhaps we should rethink just who the enemy really is . . ." As you have probably heard from the major news networks, there is some concern about the so-called portable nuclear devices developed by the old USSR. Their former head of the KGB has confirmed the existence of 150 portable devices: 100 of which are presently unaccounted for.
First of all, portable refers to a low yield device with casing that would require an 18 wheeler to transport! "Suitcase device" is a misnomer. Second, none of these devices are missing; We know exactly where these devices are located at any given point in time. . . Our satellites are fool-proof in detecting and pin-pointing the locations of enriched uranium throughout the world.
The nuclear verification process employed in monitoring Iraq and other nations via NATO and the United Nations uses these satellite joint detection systems (the NSA controls and tracks the data). Many articles concerning these satellites have already been written in specialty magazines (Defense Science and Electronics-for one). Any attempt to bring a nuclear device into our country would be instantly detected . . . Full story: rense.com

The Feast of Trumpets Part III
Every adult Israelite male was required to attend the three compulsory annual feastsPassover, Pentecost, and the feast of Tabernaclesat the temple in Jerusalem, for a sacrifice could not be offered for anyone unless he attended in person to present and lay hands upon it (Exodus 23:14-17; Leviticus 1:3; 3:2, 8).
The Hebrew sacred year began with the feast of Passover, signaling a new beginning both in the course of the year and in the life of the people as separated from among the nations (Numbers 23:9). The Pascal lamb was to be slain and eaten on Nisan 14 in the evening (Leviticus 23:5-8) which became the night of Nisan 15 since Hebrews reckoned their days from evening to evening, or sunset to sunset, rather than from midnight to midnight as we do. Thus began the feast of Unleavened Bread, seven days commemorating the solemn circumstances under which Israel began its national life.
Leviticus 23:10-11 "[Israel] shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of the [barley] harvest to the priest: and he shall wave the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted for you: on the morning after the sabbath [or holy convocation of Nisan 15] the priest shall wave it, [that is, on Nisan 16]." This Passover wave sheaf was reaped publicly the evening before it was offered. Already on Nisan 14 the spot whence the first sheaf was to be reaped had been marked out and the standing barley that was to be cut tied in bundles. On the evening of Nisan 15 although it was a Sabbath, [the holy convocation of Nisan 15], just as the sun went down, three men, each with a sickle and basket harvested an ephah of barley. This was threshed out, parched, ground, and one omer of the flour, mixed with oil and frankincense, was waved before the Lord in the Temple on the third Paschal day [Nisan 16]. That same morning in the silence of the garden-tomb the first Omer of the new Paschal flour was waved in Jesus Messiah and resurrected from the dead.
The day of Pentecost or Feast of Weeks was intended to commemorate the giving of the Law on Mount Sinai. On this day all adult males were to appear before the Lord at Jerusalem. The dedication of the harvest, commencing with the presentation of the first omer on Nisan 16 was completed on the fiftieth day in the thank-offering of the two wave-loaves at Pentecost; the memorial of Israel's deliverance terminated in the giving of the Law of sin and death for unbelief. Upon finding Israel in idolatry, Moses smashed the tables of the Law and had to ascend the mountain and personally fashion and engrave two new tables of stone which he delivered on Tishri 10, hence Israel's Jubilee is announced on the Day of Atonement. The wave offering of Jesus in the garden tomb was completed fifty days later "when the day of Pentecost was fully come" with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit by grace through faith and eternal Life on elect believers, thus ours will be a Pentecostal Jubilee.
Pentecost marked the completion of the harvest, most of which had already been reaped all over the country. Whereas the Israelite priest waved the firstfruits of the sheaf before the Lord for acceptance of the whole harvest of barley and wheat, Christ was waved as "the firstfruits of [the Old Testament 'barley' saints] who slept . . . [and] afterward the [New Testament 'wheat' Bride] who are Christ's at His ['parousia'] Coming" for the first resurrection (I Corinthians 15:23).
As the omer for Nisan 16 was of barley, the first ripe corn in the land, so the two wave-loaves were prepared from wheat, the most noble grain. Similarly, three seahs were cut down, brought to the Temple, threshed like other meat-offerings, ground, passed through twelve sieves and two omers of flour used for the two loaves and baked with leaven the evening preceding the festival.
The feast of Tabernacles followed fifteen days after the Feast of the Trumpets on Tishri 1, the seventh month of the ecclesiastical year but the first month of the civil year, corresponding to our September. It was New Year's Day which was celebrated among the Hebrews and other contemporary nations with great festivity and joy and ushered in by a flourish of trumpets. This "blowing of trumpets" had been the signal for Israel's host on their march through the wilderness as it afterwards summoned them to warfare, and proclaimed or marked days of public rejoicing and feasts as well as the "beginning of their months" (Numbers 10:1-10). It is expressly stated to have been "for a memorial" that Israel might "be remembered before Jehovah" their God whom Israel proclaim as their King. And so every season of "blowing the trumpets" whether at New Moons, at the feast of Trumpets or New Year's Day, at other festivals in the Sabbatical Year and the Year of Jubilee or in time of war was a public acknowledgment of Jehovah as King. Accordingly we find the same symbols adopted in the figurative language of the New Testament. As of old the sound of the trumpet summoned the congregation before the Lord at the door of the Tabernacle, so "His elect" shall be summoned by the sound of the Great Trumpet in the day of Christ's 'parousia' Coming to Israel at the end of the Gentile dispensation (Matthew 24:31) when not only the living but also "the dead in Christ" shall be changed (I Thessalonians 4:16).
The feast of Trumpets called Israel to the Day of Atonement on Tishri 10 on which the Israelite was to afflict his soul, and on which the sins of the nation were removed, and its Covenant relation to God restored (as it was at Mount Sinai). Thus sanctified the nation could keep a holy feast of harvest joy unto the Lord at the feast of Tabernacles, as in the truest sense it will be "in that day" when the meaning of the feast of Tabernacles shall be really fulfilled (Zechariah 14:20). In the year of Jubilee trumpets sounded throughout the land on the Day of Atonement announcing the year of release.
The feast of Tabernacles, celebrated from Tishri 15-21 represented the six days of a thousand years in which man has laboured against sin and the seventh day or millennium of rest, the 'honeymoon' of Christ and His Bride; this was followed by an eighth day signifying eternity and the renewed heavens and renewed Earth. It was the most joyous of all festive seasons in Israel at a time of year when all hearts would naturally be full of thankfulness, gladness, and expectancy. The crops of the field had been long stored; and now all fruits were also gathered and the vintage past; the land only awaited the softening and refreshment of the "latter rain" to prepare it for a new crop. It is fitting that when the commencement of the harvest had been consecrated by offering the first ripe sheaf of barley and the full ingathering of the corn by the two wave-loaves, there should now be a harvest feast of thankfulness and of gladness unto the Lord. If the beginning of the harvest had pointed back to the birth of Israel in their Exodus from Egypt, and forward to the true Passover Lamb in the future; if the corn-harvest was connected with the giving of the Law on Mount Sinai in the past, and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost; the harvest-thanksgiving of the feast of Tabernacles reminded Israel, on the one hand of their dwelling in booths in the wilderness, while on the other hand it pointed to the final harvest when Israel's mission should be completed and all nations gathered unto the Lord (Zechariah 14:16-21). Thus the first of the three great annual feasts spoke, in the presentation of the first sheaf of the founding of the Church; the second of its harvesting when the Church in its present state should be presented as two leavened wave-loaves; while the third pointed forward to the full harvest in the end when "On this mountain the Lord of Hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food . . . And He will destroy on this mountain the covering which is upon all peoples and the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces; He will remove from all the earth the reproach of His people Israel" (Isaiah 25:6-8; I Corinthians 15:26; Revelation 20:14; 21:4).
Our concern in this study is Israel's feast of the TrumpetsTrumpets whose certain sound through two millennia past has been uncertain to a people who "to this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart" (II Corinthians 3:15). The Message of the angel to each Church was the Gospel Trumpet announcing the Coming of Jesus, even as runners preceded Joseph's carriage crying, "Bow the knee." But because Israel had been blinded by their priests and rabbis "teaching for doctrine the [Talmudic] commandments of men" (Isaiah 29:9-13; Matthew 15:9) they did not receive the Good News of God's grace and suffered chastisement by the Trumpets of His judgment.
Throughout the Church Ages the Revelation of Jesus Christ was sealed by Seven Seals which were the voices of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10. In the visions on Patmos island John saw and heard the seventh angel William Branham unveil their mysterious utterances but Jesus commanded: "Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not . . . but in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound [or reveal his Message], the mystery of God should be finished".
Because Israel as a nation rejected and brutally murdered Jesus Messiah it has remained under the curse of the Law of sin and death, subject to condemnation under the Seven Trumpet judgments from Calvary to the regeneration and martyrdom of her 144,000 elect in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. Instead of grace, they must pay "life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burning for burning, wound for wound and stripe for stripe" (Exodus 21:23-25). The First Trumpet came into full manifestation when Roman General Titus destroyed Jerusalem and razed the Temple (Matthew 24:2, 15-21; Revelation 8:7). Afterwards Israelites were excluded from Jerusalem and dispersed. The greatest reproach that can be brought upon an Israelite is exile because his Covenant with God is of no effect outside the Promised Land where he cannot even observe his sabbath day.
The Six Trumpets prophesied in Revelation 8:7 9:21 have smitten the Israelites throughout the antitype of their Pentecostal Feast while God was delivering grace to the Church, as "Spiritual blindness through a hardening against God has come upon the Israel nation [not arbitrarily upon individual Israelites], until the full number of elect Gentiles come into Christ [by the baptism with the Holy Spirit, which is the new birth]" (Romans 11:25; Isaiah 18; 27:12-13; Ezekiel 11:13-21; 36:24-26). Brother Branham said, "Every trumpet sounded [or will be revealed in the Message of Israel's prophets] under the [manifestation of the] Sixth Seal, [after the close of the Gentile dispensation at the Seventh Trumpet (Revelation 11:15-19)] under the persecution of the Jews [who impersonate the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and thus suffer the Trumpet judgments with them]" (The Feast of the Trumpets p. 19:150).
The Prophet proceeded to explain how the Seven Trumpet judgments calling Israel out from bondage to the Law of sin and death under the New Testament are the antitype of the plagues God sent to call Israel out from Egyptian bondage. His Messenger revealed Himself to Israel in his own strength when he slew an Egyptian who was smiting a Hebrew; Moses thought Israel might start a rebellion and follow him to Canaan, but they reported him to authorities and he fled for his life. This Egyptian prince was made to live in the desert with a hot tempered wife for forty years until he learned God works through faith; then as an octogenarian Moses was sent with a crooked stick and 'three pulls' to instill faith in Israel. Unbelief in his Message condemned Pharaoh, while belief delivered Israel and defeated the military superpower of that day.
After Moses called out Israel he led them to the land of promise, and after the last saint predestinated to Christ's end-time Bride receives the Message of the seventh angel the Holy Spirit will lead us to the promised eternal land of the millennium.
As it happened, the Adult Israelites were make-believers. When God delivered the Ten Commandments from Mount Sinai in Saudi Arabia they said, "Let me not hear the Voice of the Lord my God again, neither let me see this great Fire any more, lest I die. And the Lord said to Moses: They have spoken well. I will raise them up a Prophet like you from among their brethren; and I will put My words in His mouth; and He shall speak to them all that I command Him." That Prophet was Jesus Messiah whom the Judeans rejected in the second Exodus as they had rejected Moses in the first.
Jesus prophesied the Mount of Olives will cleave in two beneath His theophany in the Pillar of Cloud "at the Seventh or Great Trumpet, and He will send His angels [Hebrew prophets with the Spirit and power of Moses and Elijah (Zechariah 4; Revelation 11)], and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, [war and strife in "the time of Jacob's trouble"] from one end of heaven to the other" (Zechariah 14:4-5; Matthew 24:31). Their ministry will be the antitype of the feast of Trumpets which announced and called all Israel to the Day of Atonement. It will gather 144,000 elect Israelites to the land of the Covenant for their redemption, call them out from the commandments of men and prepare them for the mourning of the true feast of Atonement by revealing the mystery of the Seven Trumpet judgments that have smitten Israelites throughout the Gentile dispensation.
"And when the two prophets have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. . . And after three and a half days the Spirit of Life from God will enter them, and they will stand up! And great fear will fall upon everyone. Then a loud Voice will shout from heaven: Come up here. And they will ascend to heaven in a Cloud; as their enemies watch. The same hour there will be a great earthquake that levels a tenth of the city, leaving seven thousand dead: then the terrified remnant will give glory to the God of heaven" (Revelation 11:7-13). At this time the 144,000 will recognize that by wicked hands their forefathers have taken and crucified and slain their Messiah (Acts 2:23), and by grace through faith they will atone for their sins and be gloriously born-again (Zechariah 12-14).
Israel's revelation of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to them under their Seventh Trumpet will baptize 144,000 into Christ as the revelation of His second or 'parousia' Coming to us under our Seventh Seal baptized Christ's end-time Bride into Christ. I will quote what Brother Branham said in The Sixfold Purpose of Gabriel's Visit to Daniel (p. 77:133-135; Daniel 9:24), speaking of the sixth purpose which is "to anoint the most holy place," the Holy of Holies where God dwelt between the cherubim and His glory overshadowed the throne of mercy and judgment. Then the Ark was "made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father), full of grace and truth" (John 1:14). Soon the "Tabernacle of God will be with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His peoples, and God Himself will be with them, and be their God" (Revelation 21:3). The former things will have passed away, and the most holy place will be our Lord Jesus Christ and His Bride signified as the New Jerusalem that descends from God out of heaven crowned by the Shekinah glory and anointed with the joy of the 144,000 elect Israelites.
Revelation 19:1-16: "And after [the tribulation, after the Woes, after the Seals, after the Plagues, after the casting out of Satan, after the setting up of the Millennium. Watch] I heard a voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: for true and righteous are His judgments: for He has judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of His servants at her hand. And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke will rise up forever and ever. [That's the old prostitute church]. And the four and twenty elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God who sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Hallelujah."
"And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all you His servants, and you that fear Him, both small and great. And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, [Listen. Here you are, Church. After she went up in the third chapter, here she comes. See]? And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a mighty thundering, saying, Hallelujah: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth."
"(Hallelujah. Watch. The marriage of the Lamb comes now. [He means the Wedding Supper, for the Marriage was our new birth]. Here she comes)! Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb has come [to pass], and His Wife has made herself ready. (Here she comes, both Bride and Bridegroom). And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousnesses of saints."
Now Brother Branham, the angel of Revelation 1:1, 3:14 and 10:7 who signifies the mysteries of the Patmos visions to John speaks:
"And he said unto me, Write, Blessed are they who are called to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. And He said unto me. These are the true sayings of God. And I fell down at his feet to worship Him. And he said unto me: See you do it not: I am your fellowservant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. And I saw heaven opened, and beheld a white horse; . . . (Oh, my) . . . and He that set thereon was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness does He judge and make war."
"And His eyes was as flames of fire, and on His head was many crowns; . . . (He was crowned what? King of kings) . . . and He had a name written, that no man knowed, but Himself. And He was clothed with white vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of God. . . ["In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God; and the Word was made flesh and dwelled among us." Who was it? Jesus]. . . . and His Name is called The Word of God."
"And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. (Glory. Here He comes). And out of His mouth will go a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treads the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God. And He had on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS".
"What was it? His people had just [caught the revelation of His 'parousia' Coming and] crowned Him King of kings and Lord of lords [by their faith], coming back to His holy Temple, anointed with the Presence of God to live and to reign through the millennium with His Church. Amen. The appearing with the mighty King to take her place at His side, the new royal anointed Temple [New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:22)]."
"Now, the sixfold purpose of Revelations 6:1 to Revelations 19:21 [and Daniel 9:24, 27] is fulfilled. Listen."
"Now in closing, the Seven Seals, Seven Trumpets, Seven Vials, Three Woes, woman in the sun, casting out of the Devilor the red dragon, comes between these times [i.e. between Revelation 4 and Revelation 19 after the PART-Word Church is finished along with Christ's Mediation in Revelation 3:22] during the great tribulation period. Don't forget it. All these things take place during this time, but here is the sixfold purpose of [Gabriel's] coming. Do you believe it? What a glorious time lays in store for those who love the Lord. I tell you, friends, we can't afford to miss that. Don't miss that for whatever you do. Be sure".
This is not the physical return of the glorified Jesus or anything that can be seen with the eye. It describes the common faith, revelation or understanding of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming to Israel that will quicken the nation, all 144,000, to new birth in one day (Isaiah 66:8). By this revelation Israel will crown Jesus Messiah "KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS" and anoint Him and His Queen, the Gentile Church, with the joy of their salvation.
The Prophet said, "Notice now, exactly, the continuity of the Scripture, exactly the same. Under the Seventh Trumpet, is to Israel the same as the Seventh Seal was to the Church" (The Feast of the Trumpets, p. 20:155). The Seventh Seal is the revelation of the previous Six Seals after the Laodicean Church Age (1906-1963) ended in apostasy. Whereas Jesus told the Philadelphian Church Age (1750-1906): "I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it," at the close of Laodicea He says: "I stand at the door, and knock"; through lukewarm indifference the apostate denominations who love the historical Jesus, put Christ the Word out like Israel at the first crucifixion because "the commandments of men make the Word of God of none effect to them." Jesus continues in line with Matthew 25:6, I Thessalonians 4:16 and Revelation 18:4: "if any individual hears My Voice, and opens the door [to his heart], I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me" (Revelation 3:8, 20). This is the invitation to Christ's end-time Bride: represented by John in Revelation 4:1, she comes OUT from Rome and her (once) Protestant harlot daughters and is caught up in the Spirit into the rapture by the Message of the seventh angel and sees "the door of grace still open in heaven".
The church has joined Israel in apostasy and will conspire to establish Lucifer's totalitarian one world government when he is cast down to Earth incarnate in the pope at the close of the Gentile dispensation. The Prophet said: "A confederation of church will consolidate them together and bring the Jews into this confederation, and bring them back to their own temple worship again in the THUS SAITH THE LORD out of the Bible, and they will have their own church" (The Sixfold purpose of Gabriel's Visit to Daniel, p. 81:140). As the Seventh Seal revealed these mysteries to Christ's end-time Bride, the Seventh Trumpet will reveal them to the elect Israelites as it unfolds the mysteries of the previous Six Trumpets that have been calling Israel back to the Atonement through the dread penalties of Moses' Lawnot to the blood of bulls and goats but to Jesus Messiah, the real Lamb of God.
The Seventh unwritten Seal revealed the mysteries of the previous six written Seals. Brother Branham said, "Under the altar of the breaking of this [Fifth] Seal [were the souls] that had been slain in the time between the death of Christ and the going up of the Church [rather the end of the Gentile dispensation] (the Eichmann group and all that, them true Jews [he means Israelites - Ed] with their names on the Book [of Life, not the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic imposters whose names have been removed from the Book of Life, or the Serpent's seed of Cain's lineage who were never in the Book of Life which is the genealogy of Adam] (Matthew 23:33-36; The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 388:1; 408:5).
The Fifth Seal records the names of the faithful Israelites martyred under the first Six Trumpets "for the Word of God and the testimony which they held" (Revelation 6:9). Brother Branham had booked the school auditorium for eight days of meetings to preach the Seven Trumpets but the Lord would not let him do it. "And sincerely I knelt down before God to pray. And He revealed to me that them Seven Trumpets sounded [or are to be revealed by Israel's prophets during the tribulation] under the [manifestation of the] Sixth Seal, and I've done preached it, supernaturally. See? It's the hand of God, the whole thing. It pertains to Israel; and we picked it up under the Sixth Seal, you all who have that, how the persecution of the Jews [he means Israelites]" (Recognizing Your Day and Its Message, p. 8:36).
Brother Branham does not expound the Seven Trumpets but since there are only four successive Gentile world empiresBabylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome, Rome will rule to the consummation when "the stone cut out of the mountain without hands will break in pieces and consume all kingdoms" (Daniel 2). He shows us that all Seven Trumpets manifest under Rome's dominion; thus history and Scripture identify Imperial and Papal Rome as the enemy of God and Israel. Daniel 7:19-28 and Revelation 13:1-2 declare that the ungodly elements of the previous three Gentile world empires culminate in Rome, and as Joel's locust, cankerworm, caterpillar and palmerworm declare four stages in the growth of the same insect, these empires betray the development of Satan's kingdom working to usurp and destroy the Kingdom of Christ. Imperial Rome received a mortal wound but was transformed and revived as Papal Romea religious empire that claims dominion over heaven, earth and purgatory, a money-making racket like the holocaust®. This transformation was a political move on the part of Emperor Constantine and a strategy designed to destroy Christian faith on the part the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews who, like Rome, are the enemy of the children of Israel (Revelation 2:9; 3:9; Genesis 27:39-41). The Judaeo-Roman Catholic church was organized at the Hegelian dialectic of the First Nicaea Council in AD325 where it adopted the Babylonian trinity of gods worshipped by pagan Rome, renamed their statues and introduced baptism in three Titles (Revelation 13:1-3) acknowledging worship of the same demonic trinity of spirits behind all four world empires.
The demonic power behind Imperial Rome that persecuted Judah/Israel was bound for centuries by the superstitions and creeds of Judaeo-Papal Rome which separated the wandering so-called Jews from nominal Christian society then directed its hatred against God's real "Chosen people"Christiansunder the most cruel martyrdom. Brother Branham explained how these demonic spirits of Imperial Rome, once bound at the river Euphrates, the eastern boundary and defense of the Holy (sic) Roman Empire that fell under Islamic attrition, were loosed from Judaeo-Roman religious authority by the dictators of the world, Mussolini, Hitler and Stalin and turned upon the Jews. He restrains himself from naming American dictator and fascist Jewish president F. D. Roosevelt (The Feast of the Trumpets, p. 23:174).
Because God is omniscient and can never change his ways, and because the souls of the lost do not die but become evil spirits that inspire, oppress and possess the deceived, history appears to repeat itself and the natural types the Spiritual. So we see the United States, which is the image of Imperial Rome, has also received a mortal wound, as have her (once) Protestant Judaeo-Roman daughters, which are the image to Papal Rome. Soon they will confederate in the World Council of Churches and bring a religious persecution upon true believers and upon genuine blood Israelites. But after a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit this little hunted and persecuted group of wise virgins will go to be with Jesus. The long-planned wars against the abstract noun "terrorism," preemptive humanitarian wars now taking place, and wars to grow "democracy out of the barrel of a gun" portray the revival of the Holy Roman Empire reclaiming dominion over her colonies conquered by Islam in the Middle East and Africa. Protestant Russia is also in her sights so when Western Rome breaks her covenant with the self-styled Jewish banksters in the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week Jewry will desert Rome and resume headship over her Eastern leg, Judaeo-Communist Russia, then annihilate Vatican City State home of the Mother of (once) Protestant harlots and of Islam, and North America with nuclear bombs.
The universal apostasy of the Laodicean Church Age has enabled the Judaeo-Roman church to entice the (once) Protestant churches and indeed all religions into dialogue by "flatteries" (Daniel 11: 21, 32, 34) through Vatican II and ongoing ecumenical meetings.
Presently the United States and other colonies of the Jews' City of London are uniting with the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church and her (once) Protestant daughters in the second crucifixion of the Son of God. A former Jesuit, the Jewish author of Windswept House Malachi Martin offered a lurid behind-the-scenes look at a cabal of Vatican insiders who want to use the Judaeo-Roman Catholic Church as the foundation of a politico-religious New World Order, a ready-made infrastructure for One World Religiona universal umbrella for everybody from Episcopalians to voodoo practitioners, and promoting issues like population control, environmentalism and secular humanism, which the plotters hope will eventually lead to complete secularization of religion (Zechariah 5:11). Incidentally, "The true ancestors of the sacrilegious wretches, who blaspheme the Name of Jesus by giving it to their Company [the Jesuit's "Society of Jesus"], were the false Scribes and Pharisees, whom the Savior cursed"! (Eugene Sue, "The Wandering Jew", Vol. 2, p. 684).
Before his untimely death in 1999, Dr. Martin, who was with Vatican intelligence assessing things in Israel and an adviser to three popes told Uri Dowbenko, "I think that from the very start John Paul II for whatever reasons has sought after one thing and one thing only. The formation of what now appears to be in his mind, a universal assemblage of Catholics at the core; grouped with them the Protestant denominations, sects and churches; grouped around them believing Jews, believing Muslims, believing Hindus, believing Buddhists. And that would be a universal religious assembly that could have a powerful dynamic kick in civilization and in solving the problems of men and women today. That is the only thing you can really say this man has sought heart and soul and body with all his traveling. . ." (Uri Dowbenko, Bushwhacked: Inside Stories of True Conspiracy, ISBN 0971004218, p. 213).
When the Holy Spirit departs in the resurrection and translation of the wise virgin, "that Wicked one [the Devil-incarnate pope] will be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the Spirit of His mouth, and destroy with the brightness of His Coming: even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness" (II Thessalonians 2:8-12).
As the river Euphrates divided East from West, and bound the eastern advance of the Roman empire, the Holy Spirit was bound for two thousand years by denominational rivers but was loosed in the evening-time by Brother Branham's Message (Zechariah 14:7; Revelation 10:7). These mysteries were loosed under the revelation of the Seventh Seal to call Christ's Bride OUT from the world church system. When the Sixth Seal opens and the Seventh Trumpet sounds, the Gentile dispensation will be over, Satan will be cast down to earth, Los Angeles will sink beneath the Pacific, and the Mount of Olives will cleave in two, demolishing the Dome of the Rock and igniting the "hot" stage of World War III. Persecution will strike the self-styled Jews occupying Jerusalem and Palestine causing them to "turn to their own people and flee to their own land" and causing the children of Israel to return to Palestine for the feast of the Trumpets and their redemption (Isaiah 13:6-16; Zechariah 14:2). nl723.htm
