Persecution of God’s children
Edited by J E Bradburn
This action prefigures (to show or represent beforehand by a figure or type; foreshadow). the divisions of the work of the last days and the three shepherds who are to be removed in one month the work then involves Ephraim, http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Lineage4.htm THIS IN WHICH CASE IS THE U.K. http://godsplan.org.uk/fulltentribes.htm
24 And Gideon sent messengers throughout all mount Ephraim, saying, “Come down against the Midianites, and take before them the waters unto Beth-barah and Jordan.” Then all the men of Ephraim gathered themselves together, and took the waters unto Beth-barah and Jordan.
25 And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes and looked, and, behold, a company of Ishmeelites came from Gilead with their camels bearing spicery and balm and myrrh, going to carry it down to Egypt.
People with this name have a deep inner desire to use their abilities in leadership, and to have personal independence. They would rather focus on large, important issues, and delegate the details. And they took two princes of the Midianites, Oreb and Zeeb; and they slew Oreb upon the rock Oreb, and Zeeb they slew at the winepress of Zeeb, and pursued Midian, and brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon on the other side Jordan.
Genesis 17:20 (KJV) And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.
The pursuit of the 15,000 children of the east by Gideon’s 300 extended over Jordan. 120,000 had been slain in one night. The battle had started at the beginning of the middle watch, i.e. just after 10 p.m. In other words this was just before midnight when the bridegroom came. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm but we do not know when He will come down. This was God; who for His own reasons was putting His plan into action.
16 “Make ye mention to the nations; behold, publish against Jerusalem, that watchers come from a far country, and give out their voice against the cities of Judah.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/bibleprophecytheend.htm
22 “For My people is foolish, they have not known Me; they are sottish (stupid) children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/knowledgeandwisdom.htm
From this sequence, taken as prophecy, we are dealing with the publication of affliction involving a number of nations in the last days, under direction of the tribe of Joseph as Danite Ephraim using groups prepared beforehand, initially from Manasseh, using Asher and Napthali and the various tribes of Israel. That time is now at hand. We are being prepared. The tools we are given will form the nucleus for our capacity to endure the rest of the persecution of the remainder of the 100 years, which commenced from 1916 taking up fully from 1927--2027.
8 And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion (of Judah) among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/jehovah%27sword.htm
A preoccupation with numbers saw 70,000 of one of the Sabbatarian churches over the last ten years fall and spiritually die, as was the case with David when he numbered Israel. David numbered Israel because God wished to make an example of Israel for their iniquity 2 Sam. 24:1-25 David had Israel numbered in spite of His advice. On realising his error, he was given three choices:
02 For the king said to Joab the captain of the host, which was with him, “Go now through all the tribes of Israel, from Dan even to Beersheba, and number ye the people, that I may know the number of the people.”
03 And Joab said unto the king, “Now the Lord thy God add unto the people, how many soever they be, an hundredfold, and that the eyes of my lord the king may see it: but why doth my lord the king delight in this thing?”
04 Notwithstanding the king's word prevailed against Joab, and against the captains of the host. And Joab and the captains of the host went out from the presence of the king, to number the people of Israel.
09 And Joab gave up the sum of the number of the people unto the king: and there were in Israel eight hundred thousand valiant men that drew the sword; and the men of Judah were five hundred thousand men.
10 And David's heart smote him after that he had numbered the people. And David said unto the Lord, I have sinned greatly in that I have done: and now, I beseech thee, O Lord, take away the iniquity of thy servant; for I have done very foolishly.
16 And when the angel stretched out his hand upon Jerusalem to destroy it, the Lord repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed the people, “It is enough: stay now thine hand.” And the angel of the Lord was by the threshing place of Araunah the Jebusite.
17 And David spake unto the Lord when he saw the angel that smote the people, and said, “Lo, I have sinned, and I have done wickedly: but these sheep, what have they done? let thine hand, I pray thee, be against me, and against my father's house.”
21 And Araunah said, “Wherefore [why] is my lord the king come to his servant?” And David said, “To buy the threshing floor of thee, to build an altar unto the Lord, that the plague may be stayed from the people.”
22 And Araunah said unto David, “Let my lord the king take and offer up what seemeth good unto him: behold, here be oxen for burnt sacrifice, and threshing instruments and other instruments of the oxen for wood.”
24 And the king said unto Araunah, “Nay; but I will surely buy it of thee at a price: neither will I offer burnt offerings unto the Lord my God of that which doth cost me nothing.” So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
The pestilence was stopped short of the threshing floor of Araunah who, as a king, gave the floor to David as king. But David refused the gift and paid 50 shekels of silver for it. The altar was built there and the plague was stayed.
He paid Ornan six hundred shekels of gold for the site. So we can assume that the surrounds were purchased for 600 shekels and the area was enlarged for the construction. Thus, the central core of the Temple of worship was established from an inflicted pestilence. God used this sequence to bring about His will through His servants. Many of the iniquitous died in that process. This is the same cleaning out process at the end.
He has to purify the elect and remove all error induced by those who are respecters of persons and are unable to recognise and implement truth. (Purify definition, to make pure; free from anything that debases, pollutes, adulterates, or contaminates). Revelation 21:27 (KJV) “And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.”
From the restoration of the last days the church will be strengthened and go on to prepare for the coming of the two witnesses http://www.godsplan.org.uk/thetwowitnesses.htm and the restoration by Elijah of the nexus of the law of God. (Nexus = a means of connection; tie; link).
The Story of the Holocaust is as old as the modern human race. It commenced at the Garden of Eden with the intervention of Satan or Iblis (n Islam, the Devil is known as ʾIblīs or Shayṭān (plural: شياطين Shayāṭīn). who demurred (to make objection, especially on the grounds of scruples) at the creation of modern man within God's Laws and attempted to destroy mankind, and, along with it, the Plan of God.
From the Garden of Eden a new and false religion was created. This false religion was to enslave the world and was to be used as the instrument of the destruction of mankind and particularly the people of God. A constant attack has been made on the Patriarchs and Prophets over the course of human history. Ultimately God destroyed the first elements of the creation with the flood of Noah http://godsplan.org.uk/noah.htm because it had been so corrupted by the fallen Host under the demons. (The Nephilim) http://www.godsplan.org.uk/thenephilim.htm
The Religion of Satan was to encompass the entire world as Mysticism. Chapter 1 of that work gives an overview of how it spread from Babylon after the flood. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/oneworldsystemwithout_God2.htm
2 And the nations of today that comprise the people of Israel who are the holders of the birth right promises and core responsibilities of the Covenant of God, and also the sons of Keturah who will be identified in the linked text as well. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Bereshith.htm
Satan did all he could to destroy that group of people and particularly the people of the central covenant namely the twelve tribes of Israel. This people were to be attacked and they were almost annihilated many times over the course of history. They were attacked under Moses and in the desert but God established a special relationship with that people in the Wilderness. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/markofcain.htm
The major part of Israel who were the Northern Ten Tribes went into captivity first to the Assyrians and were placed north of the river Araxes in what was to become northern Mesopotamia and the southern Steppes near the Crimea and the Black sea. http://godsplan.org.uk/fulltentribes.htm They remained there for centuries and later moved into Europe, through the Caucasus Mountains, at the collapse of the Parthian Empire taking with them the original Monotheism of Israel.
Was allowed to remain for a while because of its repentance but later it too went into captivity to the Babylonians. Judah was restored under Ezra and Nehemiah so that the Messiah could be born and established in Judah from Bethlehem Ephrata; and called from Egypt as the Son of God. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/nativityofjesus.htm
Finally, when the Church had been established through Messiah and the Spiritual Temple was commenced, Judah also was dispersed and the Physical Temple and the physical system at Jerusalem were destroyed in 70 CE.
The timeline of the persecutions is divided into a series of sections. These sections show the sequence of the persecution of the church and also the persecution of the tribes of Israel and later the inheritance of their birth right as part of the promises given to Abraham. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Bereshith.htm
The early Church was persecuted initially by the Jews as their own people and from Jerusalem. However the Jews themselves were to suffer persecution from the world as well because other nations were to join Judah and become converted to Judaism even in its later and corrupt form.
The Early Doctrines of the Church were all Unitarian. (Unitarianism is a Christian theological movement, named for its understanding of God as one person) The original doctrines of the church are well known. Justin Martyr writing from Rome in the middle of the second century in his letter to the emperor on behalf of the Church at Rome showed quite clearly that the original church was Unitarian. They believed that Christ was the Great Angel of the OT that gave the Law to Moses at Sinai (Justin Martyr First Apology, Ch. LXIII). The church believed that all the elect were to become Elohim or theoi; or in other words they were to become God's as gods of Elohim (The Hebrew Name for God) and that the one true God (God is One, Eloah, Elohim); Eloah was to live in all men as Elohim. https://levendwater.org/companion/append4.html It was for this reason that Satan was dedicated to wiping out the church and ultimately mankind entirely.
At the end of the second century the false calendar was introduced by the Roman Church and split Christianity. These disputes were called the Quartodeciman Disputes and were based on the false and heathen theology of Christmas and Easter which was introduced through the worship of the Mystery cults:
The system was also based on The Golden Calf which Israel had abandoned in the Wilderness during the Exodus. But was resurrected later by Jeroboam I; first king of the northern kingdom of Israel. He was an Ephraimite and led a revolt against Solomon, inspired probably by the restlessness of North Palestine which was under southern rule. Jeroboam fled to Egypt when the rebellion failed, but returned on the accession of Solomon's son, Rehoboam.
Jeroboam 1 became notorious for fostering idolatry in his kingdom of Israel. His capital was first in Shechem and later at Tirzah, and caused Northern Israel to be taken into captivity by the Assyrian. Jeroboam I erected two golden calves for the people to worship, one at Bethel and the other in Tirzah. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Lineage8.htm At first the persecutions were external to the church and Satan tried to destroy it using the pagan Roman system.
The Family of Jesus Christ was subjected to an intense persecution and systematic extermination by the newly formed and recognised Roman Catholic Church after the Edict of Toleration by Constantine in 314 and the conference of the desposyni (The Direct Descendants of Christ) in Rome of 318. The Virgin Mariam who the Catholics renamed (Mary) and the Family of Jesus Christ http://www.godsplan.org.uk/pureHeavenlytruth.htm
Once the false system was established from Rome Satan then set about using the power of the system in Europe to eliminate the church of God which was spiritual Israel. This system could be identified by its adherence to Gods laws and God's Calendar. It had spread around the world fairly quickly and so it had to be attacked and eliminated. These attacks and persecutions came to be known as the Inquisitions and their details are in the section covering the Inquisitions over the period. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inquisition
From the Reformation under Luther in Europe, the head of the state, going over to Lutheranism, became also the head of the church in that state. This was the case also for the Anglican Church in England. Luther and the resulting Lutheran church endorsed this, and they became strongly monarchistic. This was also the case for the Protestant Movement and the Dutch Reformed Church in the Netherlands.
There was therefore in Germany strong support for the head of the state and the Kaiser. During WWI the Kaiser abdicated and the Weimar Republic succeeded the monarchy. The churches were very much afraid of losing people and power to republicans, and especially the Bolshevists.
This was felt especially in Rome from Pius IX http://www.godsplan.org.uk/pureHeavenlytruth.htm (see the section Last Inquisition in the Papal States). Therefore the Churches were looking for political parties that were against democracy and strongly opposite of left and the Nazis fulfilled that purpose.
The Nazis were very clever in playing with the sentiments of the church leaders, and the Nazi program was endorsed by the churches, despite their propaganda, before the Nazis were in power. It is remarkable, that the two churches Roman Catholic and Lutheran were so much in cooperation in this all.
This first reign after the seat was held seventeen years by Pius XI, i.e. the reign of Pius XII, was also prophesied by Nostradamus but ignored. In the same century some thirty-six quatrains earlier at C.5:Q.56 he wrote:
Pacelli was sixty-three when he was elected in 1939 and did last longer than Pius XI, and indeed, a very long time. He was also very controversial. From 1923, after the ascension of Pius XI in 1922, the churches had introduced some strange ideas in Germany such as euthanasia. Hitler merely restated the premise in 1939 as an order. (A premise is a statement that an argument claims; will induce or justify a conclusion)
Thus they actually reinforced the Nazi system as an extension of the one church and state. From 1932, the elements of the Roman Catholic and Lutheran Churches worked hand-in-hand with the Nazis to establish concentration camps and commence to eliminate all non-Trinitarians and specifically Sabbatarians, including Jews, from Europe. The Lutheran Church took over a concentration camp near Hamburg, as early as 1933.
The Catholics in Europe under Pius XII, assisted in the establishment of what was recently proven to be more than 10,000 camps, and it now seems certain that the total is of some 15,000 or more concentration and extermination camps.
The Jews were only half of the Holocaust, and in fact it now appears certain that they were not even near half of the number of people murdered by the Nazi system in Europe. Hitler was not an aberration of 1930s Germany. He was a product of his time and conditioning under the Lutherans.
With the help of the Vatican under Pius XII at the end of the war, the papacy helped Nazi war criminals to evade trial and used their influence to place them in South America and Australia. Some were used in Australia in security roles. Using this type of mentality perhaps did much damage to Australian residents. During WWII, the Roman Catholic Church under Pius XII aided and abetted, or at least condoned, the extermination of a large number of law-abiding citizens, many of whom had committed the sole crime in their eyes of being Jews or Sabbatarian (Unitarian) Christians, or of some other non-Catholic denomination. Nostradamus was himself of Jewish extraction. This fact has significance as we will see. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/cyprus.htm
The consequence of the error was to end in, at the very least, a failure to prevent murder, as we will see. In the end when the truth is finally told, and the deceitful historians in European universities admit the truth, the Roman Catholic Church will be seen for what it is and stand condemned in the eyes of the world. This is the controversial aspect of the activities of the Roman Curia under Pius XII, and both before and after his election.
However, ask our friends in California under Connor could hardly be writing a criticism of a living pope for the world to see and questions concerning his activities, could they? They were all at pains to hide it from the world. Malachy names this pope the Angelic Shepherd with incredible irony. No other single pope or person presided over the mass extermination, by his own people, of so many Sabbath-keeping Jews and Christians in the entire history of the Jewish tribe and the Christian religion. This entire matter will be examined in the forthcoming work The Holocaust:
The Fifth Seal of Persecution (see also http://www.ccg.org/_domain/holocaustrevealed.org/ The consequence of the error was to end in, at the very least, a failure to prevent murder, as we will see. In the end when the truth is finally told, and the deceitful historians in European universities admit the truth, the Roman Catholic Church will be seen for what it is and stand condemned in the eyes of the world. This is the controversial aspect of the activities of the Roman Curia under Pius XII, and both before and after his election.
In these terms we see great significance. The moon represented the Church in its original state, and also the calendar of the Church was lunisolar, (based on the conjunctions of the moon for its annual Sabbaths, New Moons and Feasts)
This was changed by the Roman system into a solar-based system, stemming from the sun-cults in seeking to destroy the true system of the original Church. They penetrated Christianity and transferred the day of worship to Sunday and then brought in the pagan or sun-cult festivals of Easter of the Baal-Istar system and of Christmas, the festival of the dies natalis Solis Invicti: the day of the birth of the Invincible Sun
As the Roman Catholic John Bosco predicted in the mid-1800s, he was elected very quickly on the death of the previous Pope John Paul II. If Bosco’s predictions are to be taken seriously, the mention of two columns and the dedication of one to the Virgin may well have a connection to Freemasonry, if we assume the columns are those of Boaz and Joachim of the Temple of King Solomon and referred to so much in Freemasonry. The tying of the ship of state to those columns as Bosco predicts by description is very serious indeed.
"Suddenly the Pope falls gravely wounded. Immediately, those who are with him run to help him and they lift him up. A second time the Pope is struck, he falls again and dies. A shout of victory and joy rings out amongst the enemies; from their ships an unspeakable mockery arises. But hardly is the Pontiff dead than another takes his place. The pilots, having met together, have elected the Pope so promptly that the news of the death of the Pope coincides with the news of the election of the successor. The adversaries begin to lose courage."
"The new Pope, putting the enemy to rout and overcoming every obstacle, guides the ship right up to the two columns and comes to rest between them; he makes it fast with a light chain that hangs from the bow to an anchor of the column on which stands the Host; and with another light chain which hangs from the stern, he fastens it at the opposite end to another anchor hanging from the column on which stands the Immaculate Virgin.
Comment: To apply to Benedict XVI the prophecy must allude to John Paul II being once seriously wounded and then dying from his later Parkinson’s Disease etc., which is exactly what happened.
Malachy allegedly says that there will be another pope after De Gloria Olivae. That pope is called simply Peter the Roman. Malachy says simply that after that event the Terrible Judge will judge the people.
Revelation 13:2 (KJV) And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
Pope Francis (Latin: Franciscus; Italian: Francesco; Spanish: Francisco; born Jorge Mario Bergoglio; 17 December 1936) (Jesuit) is the 266th and current Pope of the Catholic Church, a title he holds ex officio as Bishop of Rome, and sovereign of Vatican City. (Ex-officio = who is part of it by virtue of holding another office). Confessed to his brothers in the Vatican that Adam and Eve is a myth.
Revelation 17: 14 (KJV) These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: For He is LORD of lords, and KING of kings: and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
Revelation 16:12 - Sixth Vial. 6 (10+ 6 =16) - (10 Denotes ordinal perfection. 6. Denotes the human number). 12. Denotes Government perfection, which has to do with government in the heavens and the earth.
(Goliath, Nebuchadnezzar, and Antichrist) are all emphatically marked by this number. Old Testament events serving as "ensamples" for the latter day events, how does this historical blueprint fit for our future?
Instead of flesh pagan kings coming upon Jerusalem to siege and physically destroy, the latter day king of Babylon will be Satan and his angels as thorns and briers treading upon Jerusalem to do a spiritual destruction. According to:
Revelation 12:6 (KJV) And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. (1260 days or 42 months or 3 years & 6 months)
(Note the numbers) forward, Satan and his angels will be booted out of Heaven down to this earth for the future tribulation; and that latter day working by the king of Babylon will be one of great deception. That is the type of devastation upon Jerusalem for the latter days.
For those who wish to be with God, and love Him like the father He is, have nothing to fear. It is only those evil ones who do; and as Satan himself expressed: “It is better to rule on earth, than to serve in heaven.” So here you have the final dealings of human life on this fallen earth and why. All the answers are here on this website http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Index.htm
