Modern Events Made Clear by Prophecy

Most of the topics in the Message serve as a prophecy in their own right. What bro. Branham spoke 50 yrs ago is often more credible than what the current Biblical theologians believe. For example the Book series Left Behind with a soon to be movie starring Nicolas Cage tries to interpret the book of Revelation and discern who the Anti-Christ is and the anti-christ system.   While there are spiritual truths contained in it, it’s still amazingly off when it comes to actual application of prophecy to our day and it really doesn’t identify much. See also “Late Great Planet Earth”.,_Great_Planet_Earth

  1. So what is a more applicable interpretation that brings in actual world political powers to life as fullfillment of Biblical prophecy?  Following is a big picture overview of modern events made clear by prophecy. Any of these topics could have volumes describe them and are easily supportable through historical record.

The Great Image of Nebuchadnezzars dream Symbolizing the Reign of Ancient Babylon

  1. At the end time there are several great powers to be in existence.
    1. Image of Daniel– (Daniel 2:31-44) The Roman political empire
      1. The Feet of the great Image symbolizes the 10 kingdoms of Gentiles that rule the World (Revelations 13:1-10) The 2 separate feet symbolize the division of the Empire into East and West.
      2. East-Headed by Russia
        • Eastern Orthodox Church
      3. West-Headed by America
      4. Beast in Revelation 13: America- America serves a dual purpose as being the leader of the western world, and also as the beast that is in (Revelations 13:11-18)  exercising the power the Roman beast had.
      5. Image of the Beast-the World Council of Churches which is formed by America, almost exactly in the manner that the beast of the Roman Catholic Church formed. All it’s really waiting for is the “pope” that will be out of America to head it up. And for America to give power for it to do what it wants.

When we investigate the early formation of the Roman Catholic system we start with Rome and it’s doctrine of “Divide and Conquer”.

  1. The formation of Rome: took place in a very tumultuous time: Hannibal of Carthage had attempted to afflict Rome and weaken it and was successful for many years until under the military leadership of Scipio Africanus was able to overcome him.  Hannibal then left Carthage and fled into Syria.  This time period is when the Roman Doctrine of “Divide and Conquer” began.
  2. We find out that Carthage is modern day Libya and Tunisia where the dictator Qaddafi was recently deposed from his position by the EU and then following the pattern of ancient Rome conflict has continued over into Syria where Nato and Russia are facing off, and ISIL, IS, ISIS, has begun to rise up.
    • Now we know that the wounded head was the pagan Roman Empire, that great political world power. This head rose again as the “Roman Catholic spiritual empire”. Now watch this carefully. What did political pagan Rome do that was the basis of her success? She, “divided and conquered.” That was the seed of Rome–divide and conquer. Her iron teeth tore and devoured. Whom she tore and devoured could not rise again as when she destroyed Carthage and sowed her to salt. The same iron seed remained in her when she arose as the false church, and her policy has remained the same–divide and conquer. That is Nicolaitanism and God hates it. ~Reverend Branham. “Pergamean Church Age” C.A.B.
  3. Image of the beast-The World council of Churches-
    1. America creates the “Image of the Beast”.
      • (America) Saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, Rev 13:14 Doing miracles in sight of all the world by bringing fire down from heaven.  No other nation in recorded history has been as effective with bombing, shock and awe, drone strikes… while giving power for the Image of the Beast to speak.
    2. We find out that the World council of Churches has been growing in influence over the years but we still do not have an influential “Pope”
      • “I believe, one of these glorious days, when this united confederation of church goes together, and the new pope is brought out of the United States and put over there according to prophecy, then they’ll form an image like unto the beast. And I tell you, the true Church of God will be drove together. The real, true believers out of Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Nazarene, Pilgrim Holiness, whatever they’ll be, will go together and cemented by the love of God, that’ll make the Body of the Lord Jesus Christ, all the believers. And agnostics and shallow-minded will be cast to one side; they’ll go right on into the confederation of churches.”  Rev. Branham “Acts of the Holy Spirit” 1954
    3. Non-religious Constantine formed the Roman Church and a similar person will no doubt form the WCC.  While the World Council of Churches is still somewhat of a behind the scenes organization.  Real power is exercised by the WCC through lobbying political entities. Issues such as climate change and universal health care are some of the main focuses of the World Council of Churches which have been very powerful initiatives around the world.  But, so far the power has been used for what appear as well intended policies.
      • It was during the time of Constantine’s reign. And Constantine was not a religious man; he was a heathen to begin with. But he–he was a politician that wanted to unite… Half of Rome was Christian; half of it was pagan, so he adopted some of paganism and some of Christianity to a classical group; and they made up their own religion.
        “And so the terrible persecution of official Rome fell upon the true believers until Constantine arose and granted freedom of religious worship. There seems to be two reasons why this freedom was granted. In the first place various good emperors had not allowed persecution, but as they passed on, they were followed by those who killed Christians. It was so senseless that it finally came to public heed that the Christians ought to be left alone. The second and best noted reason is that Constantine had a very difficult battle ahead of him in taking over the control of the empire. One night in a dream he saw a white cross appear before him. He felt that this was an omen unto him that if the Christians prayed for a victory for him, he would win the battle. He promised freedom for them in the event that he was victorious. He was victorious and the freedom of worship was granted in the edict of Nantes 312 A.D.” ~Rev. Branham “The Pergamean Church Age.” C.A.B.
      • Note that: ISIS is being used as inspiration to form a UN style united religions to prevent extremists around the world.
      • The United States is seeking the support particularly in the Muslim World but will it be enough to overcome?

We find that Russia is also maintaining and developing it’s political influence. Scripture speaks of Gog and Magog.  Russia takes up 14 time zones of the Northern Hemisphere.

  1. Watch Russia-Watch the king of the north.
    1. Russia only received her place in the world, in science, no more than about forty years ago. You know, when the First World War come on, they never… They ignored Russia. Brother Roy… It was just a bunch of ignoramuses, big old Siberians, the beard all over their face, and didn’t know right and left hand. That’s right, Russia, but she recognized her place. She had to do it to fulfill the Scripture. You know my prophecies of what I said would happen, how all of them would gather in communism. Now she leads the world in science. We’re a way back behind her. All the rest of the world is behind her. She leads her place. She just recognized she had some brains, too.We’re talking about Russia for another minute. The Russians are calling for a man who can conquer space. They’re training them as fast as they can, their scientists. What if they get one, what if they get their messiah, what we going to do? And mercy on us if they get it! Remember, Germany just got such a messiah not long time, not very long ago, a Hitler. And we know what it done to them. ~Rev. Branham.
  1. Russia has taken control of oil in two European states already:  Georgia and Ukraine
    1. “When Russia goes down there to get that oil, look out. That’s all she needs. That’s what the prophet said it would do. And we’re ready for it then.”

So we see that the Interpretation of Revelations and Daniel by the Teachings of God through William Branham are more relevant than the best theological attempts at interpreting revelations by christian scholars.
