Concerning the twofold reign during the Millenium of Yahshua Messiah and the BRANCH, it has remained a mystery throughout the Church Age, but has recently been revealed. As my Christian brother and teacher was receiving the revelation in about 1993, so was another friend quite independently of him. Neither of these understood it until they started to compare notes. And as we saw in my last post, Satan has known about it and deceived men into believing they are the BRANCH.
Another man, other than David Koresh, in the last 25 years has also been deceived. The fine print in his book of life records that he believes the throne of David is his. Leviathan, the demon principality of pride, deceived him so that he has been trained in the use of supernatural powers of Hell. Like many other deceived souls, he believes his power is from Heaven. This man of sin who is a false prophet but not, in my opinion, THE false prophet of REVELATION 19:20, has deceived and destroyed many Elect of YHWH, hamstringing preparations for Yahshua’s return. With an almost unlimited power of the abyss pitted against any who visibly seek Election, is it any wonder Father has kept His true people and plans so secret? For the moment any sincere but unwary child of YHWH raises their head too high on the battlefield, it will be shot at.
That is the culling of Gideon’s army. If you are not equipped by the Almighty to confront the powers of Hell, get off the battlefield. Go back to boot camp. And move it, soldier, for time is at a premium. Scripture tells us that this iniquitous pseudo-messiah will be allowed to work in the world as an angel of light until the BRANCH takes up his calling. This is according to II THESSALONIANS 2:1-10, which, along with the man of sin, I will discuss in-depth next post.
Because the false messiah is a Jew living in Israel, Father has placed the home of the man called the BRANCH about as far from that country as possible. Just as Yahshua grew to age thirty in obscurity, so is our future king and many of his associates. The whereabouts of this place is in the Bible: But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Yudah, yet out of thee shall come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. Therefore will He give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel (MIC. 5:2-3).
It may surprise my readers to learn that thought these verses ALLUDE to Yahshua, they are prophetic Scriptures, of which there are many in the Bible, that do not specifically REFER to Him as believed.
Our Saviour King was clearly born in BETHLEHEM proper, called the city of David. All these Scriptures attest to this fact: MATTHEW 2:1 Yahshua was born in Bethlehem of Yudah; 2:5 (…the Messiah should be born) …in Bethlehem of Yudea…; 2:6 And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Yuda, art not the least among the princes of Yuda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel; LUKE 2:4 And Joseph also went…into Yudea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; LUKE 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, Which is Messiah YHWH.
There are some items of note above: the quote by the chief priests and scribes to Herod in MATTHEW 2:5 is slightly different to that of MICAYAH (MICAH) 5:2. They leave out the name Ephratah, and Bethlehem is quoted as not least and as a prince, whereas in MICAYAH it is little among thousands. The priests and scribes probably were not sure where the Messiah King was to be born. They just assumed it was Bethlehem because it was known He was to be a son of David, and quoted MICAYAH respectively.
In RUTH 4:11 we find that Bethlehem and Ephratah are two different places: …and do thou worthily in Ephratah, and be famous in Bethlehem: although Ephratah in other verses is considered to be Bethlehem (GEN. 35:18, 48:7).
In fact, Bethlehem City and Bethlehem Ephratah ARE DIFFERENT PLACES. Ephratah is a food growing district south of the City of Bethlehem. Bethlehem means house of bread and Ephratah means abundance, so metaphorically speaking it is the breadbasket of the south. We may deduce from all this that the ruler or governor called the BRANCH will come from this southern land of abundant wheat fields and other crops.
This prophecy in MICAYAH is tied into the last days, about which I write, by verse 3. It starts the very same way in II THESSALONIANS 2:7 already mentioned but enlarged next post: Therefore will He give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: (MIC. 5:3) and For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way (II THESS.). In most Bible versions one of these has been mistranslated so badly it appears to mean something entirely different so that the Church has interpreted it completely wrongly. A terrible thing which may cause some to lose their very souls one day.
Anyway, Paul talks of our gathering together unto Yahshua Messiah in II THESSALONIANS 2:1 which is the gathering of the Elect. So it must refer to the earthly King David the BRANCH, not Yahshua who was born in Bethlehem 2,000 years pre-gathering.
We are told at this point that Father will not establish His ruler until the Church travails and brings forth the man who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron (REV. 12:5). At the same time the remnant of the twelve tribes of Israel shall return to the Promised Land of their forefathers.
Can we then establish from where in the world this ruler will come forth? Mention is made on a number of occasions in ISAYAH that the lost Israelites will come from the isles (Ephraim–Great Britain, and Manasseh–USA, you have had your turn, now move over, it’s someone elses!). One such island, the largest on Earth, also happens to be the littlest or least continent. Since before its discovery, this island continent has been known by the epithet The Great South Land of the Holy Spirit. One Pedro Fernandez de Quiros, a Portuguese navigator, bestowed La Australia del Espiritu Santo with its name in 1606. Until Captain James Cook claimed the island continent in the name of the king in 1770, YHWH held back the Muslims in Indonesia (merely a hop away), Chinese in South-East Asia, Hindus-Buddhists-Taoists, and even other European nations from colonizing it.
How does Australia fulfil the allegory of Bethlehem Ephratah? The red dusty plains produce so far in excess of one tonne of wheat per year for every mouth that they could adequately feed even the world! She is the breadbasket of the south. So long inconspicuous as a leading Christian nation, it is especially poignant that she started off as a dumping ground for convicts – despised and rejected of men, a place of sorrows and acquainted with grief…wounded for our transgressions…bruised for our iniquities, the convicts given stripes to ‘heal’ them of their sins.
Not only does the ruler come from her; but the very reason why Australia accepts outcasts and refugees from every nation on Earth is to have members of every tribe and tongue here when the time comes to cleanse the altar, priesthood, people, gates, city. May it happen before that great and terrible day.
As I am Australian, this is my country I am talking about. But personally, if there’s to be a king to replace the Queen or Prince Charles, I don’t care what country he comes from. Or this may be a lot of codswaffle. It has however been prophesied by others there’s to be a change of backsides on the throne. Anyway, I’m a reluctant prophet. I’m not trying to attract attention. Unlike David Korresh I do not have a bevy of husbands around me seeing to my every need. (He had ‘wives’.) In fact, I haven’t got one. Mine left me, as you would know if you read my early posts–to be the woman forsaken and grieved in spirit of ISAYAH 54:6. But if this revelation is fulfilled as I have described, we will, hopefully, recall this blog post. Meanwhile, as I keep warning, we should prepare for that day.
