1Genesis 12:1Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: 2And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. 4So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. 5And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came. 6And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.  7And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.

2Nehemiah 13: 2 Because they met not the children of Israel with bread and with water, but hired Balaam against them, that he should curse them: howbeit our God turned the curse into a blessing.

3Mark of the beast 61-0217 P:48 However, now notice. Israel--God had to harden Pharaoh's heart to drive them out the first time. And He done the same thing this time. He hardened Hitler's heart against the Jews; that's what started the war. Remember, God said, "Ever who curses Israel, I'll curse them. Who blesses Israel, I'll bless him." And it was scattered all over the world. And then He hardened Hitler's heart, hardened Mussolini's heart, hardened Stalin's heart. All the different hearts of the nation, He hardened them and finally opened up the way, and Israel is returning and already in her homeland. If you want to see what day of the month it is, look on the calendar. If you want to see what day in the season it is of the coming of the Lord, watch where Israel's setting. That's God's timepiece. There she is, setting in her homeland. The oldest flag in the world, the six point star of David, the oldest flag in the world flies again for the first time for twenty-five hundred years (Yes, sir.), yes, the ensign that was to be lifted up. Israel, Palestine blossoming as a rose, you read in the magazines, and watch how they come back, way down in Iran and so forth. "Look" magazine packed articles, how they went out after them Jews. They wouldn't get on that airplane. That old Rabbi went out there, said, "Our prophet told us, Isaiah, hundreds of years ago, thousands of years ago, that when we come back to the homeland, we'd come back on the wings of an eagle." There it sets. Amen. They got right on and away they went.

4Second coming of the Lord 57-0417 P:26 Now, Jesus speaking, "When you see the fig tree put forth its bud." Now, the Jews has been scattered to all the world, great numbers, millions in Germany, and in Italy, and in the United States, and all over the world. And God, as He did in the early days, hardened Pharaoh's heart, He hardened Mussolini's heart on the Jews, and the Jews was ousted from Italy. He hardened Hitler's heart, and they were ousted from Germany. He hardened Stalin's heart, and they were ousted from Russia. And have you been noticing the paper, that we, the United States, are taking sides with the Arabs? Oh, brother, the handwriting's on the wall. God said, "Whoever blesses Israel will be blessed, who curses Israel shall be cursed."

5Let us bow our heads in a word of prayer. Dear Gracious and Loving Father, it is our intentions to know thee better in this last days and to prepare ourselves for the time of adoption of sons, but Father it seems to me that there is an impediment upon your people because they have lost their vision, and it is my prayer father that your children set their eyes aright upon Thee and the late hour that we might come into an earnestness and a true diligence in our quest to be conformed to the Image of your First born Son, and so I ask you father to bless this mini series that we might see just how late the hour is before you wind up the gentile dispensation. Help us Father to be resolute and determined that nothing will come between us and you, and we ask that you bless this mini series to help us see how imminent the Coming of Your Son is, in Jesus Christ’s Name we pray, Amen.

6Recognizing your day 64-0726M P:35 Oh, you men in other lands where you'll hear this tape, can't you wake up, my brother? Or does it blind you? Would you throw it out and call it false prophecy when it's vindicated right before you by the world, by the time, by the peoples, and by the Holy Spirit Who wrote It. It's vindicated both naturally, spiritually, materially. Everything that He said is fulfilled and proven. Israel in her land; drove them in there, herded them in there like sheep. The wolves got after her and run them back to safety to their own land. Remember, Israel was only promised to be blessed as long as she was in her land. God never blesses Israel outside of the land. Abraham went outside of the land, was condemned. Everyone that leaves the land is condemned. God only can bless Israel when she stays in her homeland. And she's there now as a nation. And the church is called. She's just only waiting for the rapture of the Bride taken out. The Seals are open. It's revealed to us. We see what they left off. You that want to debate and fuss about the serpent's seed, and water baptism, and so forth, you're blinded and don't know it. The god of this world has blinded you to it, and you don't know it. (No wonder I had such a time this morning fighting through them pressures.) So their prophets can be revealed in this last day. Can't do it till the feast of the trumpets.

7Now, we have seen from several of Brother Branham sermons, that “they that bless Israel will be blessed and they that curse Israel will be curse”.

8Wednesday night we looked at paragraph 184 of The Spoken Word is the Original Seed, and we spoke on how America is a type of Israel and then we listened to about 40 paragraphs from Brother Branham himself from his sermon Jezebel religion bring out many of those similarities for us to consider and understand, because after God said, My people perish for lack of understanding.

9Isaiah 29:7And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel (Ariel is a symbolic name for Jerusalem), even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision. 8It shall even be as when an hungry man dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh; but he awaketh, and, behold, he is faint, and his soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion. 9Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.  10For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.  11And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: 12And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned. 13Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: 14Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.  15Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us? 16Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding? 17Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest? 18And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness. 19The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.  20For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off: 21That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought. 22Therefore thus saith the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale. 23But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel. 24They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

10Now this morning, Lord willing, I would like to begin a mini series on Israel and America to show how that our destiny or destruction rather will be tied to what we do with Israel as a nation. Now let me read first from The Spoken Word is the original Seed because we are tying this mini series to inspiration we received from this Sermon of Brother Branham’s in which we have been studying since

11Let’s turn to Paragraph 184where we read,All Scripture that has not been fulfilled, must be before that time. The Gentile dispensation is to be finished with the church age when this anointed messenger arrives. Of course, he will plant the Seed of the entire Bible, come from the serpent to the messenger in the former rain. Then he will be rejected by the denominational people as his forefather John and Elijah, as was spoken by our Lord--people as Elijah was the first time to Ahab's time. It will happen here in this country, as this country is a type of Israel.

12185 Read or hear "Jezebel Religion." As this country, our fore-fathers worshipped the way they wanted to, come to this country and pushed out the natives and took over; so did Israel take over when they come up out of Egypt. We had godly men like Washington, Lincoln. They had great godly men as David and so forth. Then they got a Ahab on the throne with a Jezebel behind him to direct him: so have we. So it's at this time in this country, that that person will appear. For it's in the Scripture, and it's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Now, Wednesday night we took a look at about 40 paragraphs from Jezebel Religion where brother Branham said the following…

13Jezebel religion  Middletown, Ohio 61-0319  27 It's a striking thing to see the parallel between Israel of the Old Testament and America now. Both of them were great nations. Both of them had been founded, and their people had come there because of religious persecutions. Israel had been persecuted by Pharaoh and had been in bondage for hundreds of years, where they were deprived of worshipping the true and living God, and had been deprived of that privilege; and they become slaves. But God had made them a promise in His Bible, or in His Word, and by His prophets, that He'd give them a land. And they'd come into this land and drove back the occupants of that land, and had possessed their inheritance, for God had a purpose of doing that.

14The Results of Dealing With Yasser Arafat

15September 1, 1993: President Clinton announces he will meet Arafat and Rabin on September 13 in Washington, DC to begin the Oslo Peace Accords. After nearly a week of meandering in the Atlantic Ocean, Hurricane Emily hits North Carolina on this day.

16March 2, 1997: Arafat meets with President Clinton in Washington, DC. The same day awesome tornado storms unleash tremendous damage in Arkansas and flooding in Kentucky and Ohio. Arkansas and Kentucky declared disaster areas.

17January 21, 1998: President Clinton is waiting to meet with Arafat at the White House. At this exact time the President's sex scandal breaks.

18September 27, 1998: Arafat is meeting with the President in Washington. Hurricane Georges hits Alabama and stalls. The Hurricane stalls until Arafat leaves and then it dissipates. Parts of Alabama declared a disaster area.

19October 17, 1998: Arafat comes to the Wye Plantation meeting. Incredible rains fall on Texas which causes record flooding. FEMA declares parts of Texas a disaster area.

20November 23, 1998: Arafat comes to America. He meets with President Clinton who is raising funds for the Palestinian state. On this day the stock market fell 216 points.

21December 12, 1998: On this day the US House of Representatives votes to impeach President Clinton. At the very time of the impeachment, the President is meeting with Arafat in Gaza over the peace process.

22March 23, 1999: Arafat meets with Clinton in Washington, DC. Market falls 219 points that day. The next day Clinton orders attack on

23HEADLINES: Aug. 15-Aug. 23, 2005 Gaza and West Bank Disengagement: In an effort to relieve the security threats against Israelis living in Gaza and to try to put the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks back on track, Israel unilaterally pulls all of its citizens out of the Gaza Strip and the northern West Bank. On Sept. 12, 2005, the last Israel Defense Forces soldier departs the Gaza Strip.

24Now, pay close attention to the dates of this agreement to deal with the enemies of Israel and to divide Israel as a nation taking from her the land which God gave to her through God’s Covenant to Abraham. Now, remember, this is God’s covenant, so any covenant that would be established concerning to the Seed of Abraham and the land God gave to them, would be in outright violation to God and His Covenant He established with his people Israel. And since he is the eternal and immortal King, His Covenant is enduring as long as He lives, and since he can not die, there is no power on earth that relegate His covenant null and Void.

25So here is the lesson we must understand, God said it and that settles it. No court in the land is higher than the Word of the Supreme Judge of Heaven and earth. And to try to establish law that would undo one of God’s Covenants, is not hearkening to the Voice of the Lord Thy God, and we see the curses as a result of this in Deuteronomy 28 beginning with verse 15.  

26Therefore, According to Wikipedia the very day that the Israel unilaterally pulled all of its citizens out of the Gaza Strip and the northern West Bank to begin the division of  Israel Hurricane Katrina began as we will see below. It was the costliest natural disaster, as well as one of the five deadliest hurricanes, in the history of the United States.[2] Among recorded Atlantic hurricanes, it was the sixth strongest overall. At least 1,836people died in the actual hurricane and in the subsequent floods, making it the deadliest U.S. hurricane since the 1928 Okeechobee hurricane; total property damage was estimated at $81billion (2005 USD), [2] nearly triple the damage wrought by Hurricane Andrew in 1992.[3]

27Hurricane Katrina formed over the Bahamas on August 23, 2005 and crossed southern Florida as a moderate Category1 hurricane, causing some deaths and flooding there before strengthening rapidly in the Gulf of Mexico. The storm weakened before making its second landfall as a Category3 storm on the morning of Monday, August 29 in southeast Louisiana. It caused severe destruction along the Gulf coast from central Florida to Texas, much of it due to the storm surge. The most significant amount of deaths occurred in New Orleans, Louisiana, which flooded as the levee system catastrophically failed, in many cases hours after the storm had moved inland.[4] Eventually 80% of the city and large tracts of neighboring parishes became flooded, and the floodwaters lingered for weeks.[4] However, the worst property damage occurred in coastal areas, such as all Mississippi beachfront towns, which were flooded over 90% in hours, as boats and casino barges rammed buildings, pushing cars and houses inland, with waters reaching 6–12miles (10–19km) from the beach.

28           pursue independence, "whether in the Security Council or in the General Assembly or combined."

29If a U.S. veto looks certain in the Security Council, there's the option of going before the General Assembly, where there is no veto but resolutions are nonbinding...

30From An Israeli Online Newspaper called the DEBKAfile in an Exclusive Report  dated November 14, 2010

31“Washington sources disclose that the three-month settlement construction freeze-for-incentives deal Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu discussed with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Friday, Nov. 12, also included a commitment to hold Israel-Palestinian negotiations on the two states' final borders during that period. Assuming the talks collapse, the Obama administration will take the initiative of delineating those borders and present its own map to both sides before the three months are up.

32Our sources disclose that the boundaries the US map will adhere a lot more closely to Palestinian territorial aspirations than to Israel case. While no one is talking about imposing it on Israel, a rejection by the Netanyahu government would place it on a collision course with the Obama White House.

33Word about Obama's planned map was not relayed to the Israeli cabinet Sunday, Nov. 14 when Netanyahu reported to the cabinet on his talks with US leaders last week, our Jerusalem sources report.

34According to our Washington sources, Obama believes that leaving Israel with no more than 4-4.5 percent of the pre-1967 West Bank area should satisfy its essential security requirements. In terms of population, this would entail the evacuation of dozens of settlements plus two important towns, Efrat in Gush Etzion in the south which has a population of 8,000, and Ariel in Samaria which has 20,000 inhabitants.

35For Washington, it is the Palestinians who are laying down the law. After his ultimatum on construction was accepted as an obstacle to talks, the Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas now warns Washington that if every last Jewish resident is not cleared from Ariel, there will be no peace accord.

36Even when the former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert held talks with Mahmoud Abbas in 2007 and 2008, Washington backed his demand for at least 5.9 percent of the land – although the figure quoted by Olmert is 6.5 percent. It was understood that in the past 33 years, these locations had developed exponentially each time the Palestinians refused to discuss peace and resorted to violence. As for the US incentives offered Israel for accepting a second moratorium on settlement construction, Netanyahu neglected to mention the corresponding benefits to be offered the Palestinians.

37The Obama administration is willing to let Israel have 20 F-35 stealth warplanes worth $3 billion in addition to the 20 already allocated and promises to veto anti-Israeli motions at the UN and other international bodies. No one knows what promises are contained in the letter under preparation at the White House for the Palestinian Authority chairman. US sources told Debkafile that Israel should not be surprised if commitments it contains are inimical to Israel.

38Now, the Scriptures warn us that they that would divide Israel, I the Lord will divide them.

39"For behold, in those days and at that time when I shall reverse the captivity and restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and will bring them down into the Valley of Jehoshaphat, and there will I deal with and execute judgment upon them for their treatment of My people and of My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and because they have divided My land." [Joel 3:1-2; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

40So we see that God will deal out judgment among the nations. They will split the land of Israel that was promised as inheritance by God, and they will say, Peace, Peace. But Jesus said,  1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

41Now, let’s look at the context of what Paul is saying here. It is taken from 1 Thessalonians where he had just spoken about the Coming of the Lord in three phases, a Shout which we know is a Message, a Voice which we know is the resurrection, and the trutmp which will be the catching away.

4213But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.18Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

43Notice that The Apostle Paul has just finished explaining how the Lord will come, first an appearing, which is the Message, then the Resurrection, then the catching away.

44Then he says in Chapter 5:1But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.  5Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

45In the book of Ezekiel 13:10-14 we are told, “‘Because they lead my people astray, saying, “Peace,” when there is no peace, and because, when a flimsy wall is built, they cover it with whitewash, That flimsy wall that is supposed to broker peace is the new state of Palestine, which the PLO and the other extremist terrorist groups are flinging their missiles over daily, what use is a fence, wall or an white washed agreement that is supposedly to bring peace. 11 therefore tell those who cover it with whitewash that it is going to fall.  What’s going to fall? The agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs because we already read in Joel 3 where God said, “I shall reverse the captivity and restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem”.

46So God Himself promised to begin destruction by hurricanes to those who would pursue the division of Israel and the false hope of Peace that would come by a whitewashed agreement. Notice again verse 11 tells us, 11 therefore tell those who cover it with whitewash that it is going to fall. Rain will come in torrents, and I will send hailstones hurtling down, and violent winds will burst forth. 12 When the wall collapses, will people not ask you, “Where is the whitewash you covered it with?”

4713 “‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: In my wrath I will unleash a violent wind, and in my anger hailstones and torrents of rain will fall with destructive fury. 14 I will tear down the wall you have covered with whitewash and will level it to the ground so that its foundation will be laid bare. When it falls, you will be destroyed in it; and you will know that I am the LORD. 15 So I will pour out my wrath against the wall and against those who covered it with whitewash. I will say to you, “The wall is gone and so are those who whitewashed it, 16 those prophets of Israel who prophesied to Jerusalem and saw visions of peace for her when there was no peace, declares the Sovereign LORD.”’

48Obadiah 1:15 "For the day of the LORD upon all the nations is near. As you have done to Israel, it shall be done to you. Your reprisal shall return upon your own head"

49Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference - "Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves. So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that's why this is so important." [Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference sponsored by former Senator Sam Nunn. Quoted from DoD News Briefing, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, Q&A at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy, University of Georgia, Athens, Apr. 28, 1997].

50In an article called, The Pressure Is On Israel For An Israeli-Palestinian Peace Agreement by Mamta Badkar | Apr. 19, 2011, 5:28 PM | 1,294 | 28

51Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is beginning to feel international pressure to sign a peace agreement with Palestine before September.

52The US has been pressing Israel to reach an agreement. Ynetnews reports: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hinted last week that the international community may apply pressure on both sides in order to promote a settlement to the longstanding conflict, which she said was as pressing as ever given recent developments in the Arab world.

53"The status quo between Palestinians and Israelis is no more sustainable than the political systems that have crumbled in recent months," Clinton said during a speech at the US-Islamic World Forum in Washington.

54The Quartet on the Middle East, a consortium comprised of the UN, US, Russia and the EU established in 2002 to deal with conflict in the Middle East, has said it will recognize an independent Palestinian state if Netanyahu doesn't come up with a peace plan, according to The Los Angeles Times. The consortium said the state would be based on 1967 borders and East Jerusalem would serve as its capital”.

55So not only would they divide Israel but they will officially divide Jerusalem the city fo David as well.

56 “Meanwhile, Riyad Mansour, a Palestinian diplomat at the UN has said that a failure to reach a peace agreement in September would result in Palestine requesting independent UN membership. The US might veto such a decision. Even if that happened, the Palestinians would still have options.

57Haaretz reports:

58...Mansour said, Palestine has been recognized as an independent state by 112 countries. Possible recognition by six others is being examined, he said, and "hopefully by September 2011 we will have 130, maybe 140 countries recognizing the state of Palestine."

59That is important because UN membership not only requires a recommendation from the Security Council but approval by two-thirds of the General Assembly, or 128 countries.

60"This is the end game," Mansour said — the more countries the Palestinians have on their side, the more they can pursue independence, "whether in the Security Council or in the General Assembly or combined."

61If a U.S. veto looks certain in the Security Council, there's the option of going before the General Assembly, where there is no veto but resolutions are nonbinding...

62Now, since 1947 since Israel became a nation again, the United States has backed her and protected her, but during the sixties under the kennedy administration and Johnson administration, we begun to turn our backs on her as a nation in favor of the oil rich Arab kingdoms. It was never so blatant, but we read you the quote from Brother Branham to begin our Message this morning that he saw that we were then beginning to turn our back on her. Now, it is not longer a hidden thing, but it is very plain with a pharaoh in the white house who knows not Joseph, we have turned our backs and are actually the country who is spear heading the division of Israel. This not only flies in the face of God’s warning by His prophets, but this nation has piled sin upon sin, and is ready for the destruction and final burning.

63What will that destruction be?

64All we have to read in Deuteronomy 28 to get our answer. The curses and judgments for not hearkening to the Voice of the Lord our God can be categorically broken down inyo four categories.

651) Economic which includes wealth, financial, loss of prosperity etc.

662) The curses also deal with politics and loss of political power and clout

673) The curses also deal on a societal level, the loss of influence among other nation, loss of respect,

684) The curses also promise a loss of health and wholeness.

69Now, brother Branham said in his sermon called Testimony 63-1128M P:11 “And now, I'm saying this; it's going to be a personal testimony to the glory of God, that it might be that you'd understand in the coming nights of what I--I want to say, if the Lord willing. You'll understand. Like I was trying to say last night, the world coming to a place it's falling apart, politically, socially, economically. You say, "Economics? More money." Yes, but where's it coming from? We're borrowed on taxes that'll be paid forty years from today. She's broke. She's bankrupt, the nation: not this nation, but all of them. And there's no way ever getting it back. And it's a trap set exactly to swing this nation into something. And all of you are wise on that. Well, who's got the wealth of the world? Who holds it? [Someone says, "Rome."--Ed.] Sure, it does. Rome holds it. And whenever we do, when we get broke, instead of these big merchants tobacco, whiskey, and so forth, like have to get the money; what we'll have to do, either change the currency or borrow the money. And when they do, it's the birthright sold right back, exactly, just as perfect, and just what the Scripture says about it.”

70Now, the promises of God to us are great but so are the curses. We were promised to be blessed as we see in Deuteronomy 28:12 NIV12 The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. and  Deuteronomy 15: 6 For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee.

71We were promised that if we would just stop and listen and pay attention to the Voice of the Lord our God we would be the head and not the tail, but look at what has happened to this country. In less than a generation we have sold our birthright as a nation, and less than 40 20 years ago we were the wealthiest nation with the number one economy and we lent to many and borrowed from none. Now, we are the greatest borrower of all nations, and we spend into a black hole thinking that spending money is the answer to our problems when Christ alone is the answer to all this nations problems. 

72And when you borrow you become servant to the one who lends. He determines the terms, he determines the repayment. And if you can not repay, then you will either be sent to the debtors prison or your properties will be confiscated in repayment.

73Proverbs 22: 7 The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.

742 Peter  2: 19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

75New International Version (NIV) 19They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity, for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him.

76Now, look at just a few of the curses that are in store for the nation that turns away from hearing the Voice of God.

77King James Version (KJV)  Deuteronomy 28:43 43The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. 44He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.

78MESSAGE Translation Deuteronomy 28:43-44 The foreigner who lives among you will climb the ladder, higher and higher, while you go deeper and deeper into the hole. He'll lend to you; you won't lend to him. He'll be the head; you'll be the tail.

79And look where our currency is going. Brother Branham prophesied that one day the dollar would not be worth the money to print it.

80At thy word Lord 48-0305 P:8 Look. In a few years from now, I will say within the space of five years, maybe a little longer, maybe a little less, your money won't be worth the paper it's wrote on. It won't be worth nothing. Over in Russia today, they have their houses papered with thousand dollar bills. It ain't worth nothing. Confederacy... That's right. And we're coming to the same thing. A missionary here in Miami the other day was talking to me. He walked down the streets of London, England, where we're going to there at the London Hall. He said, "I had six hundred pounds in my pocket," which was dollars. And said, "My little girl wanted a little cookie. And those six hundred dollars would not buy that little cookie. I had to have a stamp first. It's rationed." Mark of the beast... No man can buy or sell except he that had the mark. And it's coming right here. You listen to it. You'll probably be seeing it 'fore I get back here again. It's right at the door, and we're near the end.

81Now, I have many other predictions to give you but we will have to wait until another time, because there are many calamities that will befall this nation and not only this nation but the entire world. Back in 1998 I covered very thoroughly the curses on the economics. I placed on our website a study we did here at the church called the end-time depression judgment where we covered in about 70 pages the economic greatest depression that this world will ever see where over night the wealth of the nations will become nothing, and the Jews who run wall-street will be forced to make a pact with Rome for her gold to back up the currencies.

82That was 13 years ago and we have seen every thing I predicted based on what brother Branham and the scriptures told us would happen have now since began there unraveling.

83I preached another series that same year on the plagues that are to come upon this world. We have seen the governments manufacturing plague upon plague and slowly they let them into the peoples of the world, and still the people have not wakened up.

84Now we see the earth itself is under assault by man’s genius or so he thinks.

85From his sermon, Jesus Christ the same yesterday 52-0810E P:42 I said, "In my heart." That's right. And I said, "The trouble of it is, doctor, in the garden of Eden, there's two trees; one was knowledge and one was faith. One was Life. One was death of knowledge, other one was life by faith. And as long as they eat by faith of this tree, all right, they lived. But when he got on this tree, he died. The first bite he took, he separated himself from God. And man continually has been biting off of that tree. And every time he takes a bite by knowledge, he destroys himself. God destroy nothing. Man destroys himself through knowledge.

86Now, the flowing quote is from the Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference sponsored by former Senator Sam Nunn. Quoted from DoD News Briefing, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, Q&A at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy, University of Georgia, Athens, Apr. 28, 1997].

87“Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference - "Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves. So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that's why this is so important."

88Nations are breaking, Israel's awakening, The signs that the Bible foretold. The Gentiles days numbered, with horrors encumbered," Return, O dispersed, to you own." The day of redemption is near, Men's hearts are failing for fear; Be filled with God's Spirit, your lamps trimmed and clear, Look up! your redemption is near.

89Let’s bow our heads in prayer,
