As we sincerely pray for every sincere soul caught up in the on-going WRATH of Almighty God being poured out on America and the world, we must face the reality that "This is that which was spoken by the Prophet.....The Day of vengeance of our God has Come" Isaiah 61:2b.


AMERICA....
A Nation Already Judged



The United States of America - once a great nation with great leaders, paralleling Israel in it's History - Founded on religious principles - One nation under God. But, like Israel, America fell from Grace into modern idolatry and God has turned her over to a spiritual Babylonian captivity from which there will be no deliverance. America, as a nation, has crossed the line between mercy and judgment.

But, O, America, America, how oft would God have taken thee; thou which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen [doth gather] her brood under [her] wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate - spiritually desolate.   (See: Luke 13:34-35)

Such was the case with Israel when our Lord Jesus Christ appeared in His First Coming. As Israel's Messiah He was found weeping over Jerusalem, crying, "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem..." His lamentation over Jerusalem in Luke 19:42-44 can also be applied to America:

"Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things [which belong] unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.
For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation."

America, in the Twentieth Century, has, like no other nation (other than Israel), witnessed the Presence, Power and moving of the Spirit of the living God - the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Elijah and the prophets. Never before had a Gentile nation had so many Gospel Preachers, Bible Teachers and Evangelists, calling for repentance toward God. "All day long God strectched forth His hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people" [Romans 10:21] - but they would not yield in obedience to His Word".

Never before had a Gentile nation witnessed what America has witnessed in the form of "Supernatural Signs and Wonders". Sure, there's been fanaticism, but that fanaticism does not, by any means, excuse America for rejecting the true and genuine move of God that has taken place in her cities, towns and villages. The Lord has left no stone unturned to reveal Himself to America, lay before her His Word and call for repentance. As this Century was coming to a close God raised up a prophet - William M. Branham, and sent him from coast to coast, calling for America to turn back to God.

But what did America do? Turn back to God? NO! A million times, no! Satisified with a form of godliness the Nation continued to wade on deeper in her sins - rotten to the core - spiritually and politically. Like Sodom and Gomorrah her sin has reached unto Heaven. Therefore, the Lord, through His servant, the Prophet did rebuke and warn the Nation and the world of impending judgement. Like Babylon, America is "weighed in the balances and found wanting". [Daniel 5:27].

The Spirit of Jehovah, speaking through His servant and prophet, William M. Branham, spoke the following concerning the "United States of America". Each quote is preceded by the Message title and date spoken.

Visions And Prophecy, April 8, 1956

I say this and make this prediction. I'm not saying this in the Name of the Lord, now, I'm saying this as your brother. I predict this, and listen close. I predict that America this year, the United States this year, will either receive Christ or she will start falling, from this year.

This is America's time to repent... I predicted that I think about January the 15th or 16th of this year, just feeling led to say it, and I have stuck with it, and I look at the wheels turning up. I notice the great famous evangelist, Billy Graham. He came back from overseas, and he staged his meetings in New York and these great places to hit the very nerve center and so forth. I see that Brother Roberts was excommunicated out of the foreign country.

Mr. Arganbright wants me after June to go into Germany and back down into South Africa and through there, but something's holding me to America. All the others seems to be the same way, and I believe that America is going to get her last call this year [1956]. That's right. Look here at the tapes down here, they might be played twenty years from today.

You have to watch what you're talking about; watch what you're saying, but I believe that. Now, the Lord hasn't told me that, but I believe that, that America is either going to receive Christ or is going to turn Him down flatly this year, and I predict that they will turn Him down. I do.

Look what they're doing down in Florida to Jack Coe. Look what they're doing all the way. How could they - that's even unconstitutional to oust a man out of the state. We've got freedom of speech - certainly we have. But first thing you'll know, they'll try to stop all of this. They'll try to quit praying for the sick and put a ban on it. Just remember that when persecution rises, the church comes to its very height then, it's always the best. Yes, sir, and God's working it all together.

GOD KEEPS HIS WORD - 04/07 1957

Notice, when the testing time comes for the nations, when the testing time come for Israel, she failed. And when she did, God turned her over to Babylon. And as a nation, she failed. And when the testing time come for Rome, she failed. When the testing time come for Greece, ...France, ...Russia, it failed. Listen. And I say this, with the reverent heart to God, "The testing time has comes for America, and she's failed."

The Gospel has been preached from the east to west, from north to south; they've combed every little place and crack and corner. Great revivals has went forth, Billy Graham's, and Jack Schuller's, and Oral Roberts. Oh, just hundreds of them have combed every little crack and corner.

The devil throwed out a television yonder, and God worked it around to throw man on the television, and every drunkard in the barroom, or wherever he is will stand without an excuse. Yes, sir. The testing time has come. What did I tell you from this pulpit? Last year [1956] America made her fatal mistake. I said, "Fatal mistake," sure did. And look what she's doing now. You see it in the government affairs. They're trying to go right over and hook up with the Arabs. Don't you know, God's Word said, "Ever who curses Israel, will be cursed?" Certainly.

I stand with Israel, "leave our ground or we'll take it!" Certainly. Here, they've really went with the wrong thing. Sure they are. Brother, look at every nation that turned against the Jew; they've sunk. Look at Germany, when she turned against the Jew, and they burnt the bodies in the incinerators, and look what it is today. Look at Italy, that turned against the Jews, when Mussolini ousted them from Italy. Looked at her today. If we wasn't feeding them, they'd be starved to death.

And here, the Gospel has come and give a mercy call throughout the Nation, for years, and we've turned it down. And now working, the Devil taking his seat, is turning the hearts of these political men against Israel, and they've hooked up, over yonder, with the Arabs. Brother, we're as good as gone. Man, we'll sink as sure as the world.

Handwriting On The Wall - 03/09 1958

Someone said to me sometime ago, said, "Preacher, our foundation of America was founded upon the reverence and the respects of our forefathers. They were religious men, therefore, God will protect this nation forever." He will have no more respects for us than He did for Israel. Israel was His called and chosen people. And when they sowed, they reaped what they sowed. And that goes for individuals. No matter how holy, or church we claim to belong to, or how good we try to live, God is obligated to His Word, to judge us according to what He has said.

Faith - 03/15 1958

Go back through your history, you historians, and look through the Scriptures, and seek them out, and find out if Jesus performing those miracles, by knowing their thoughts, [discerning the thoughts and intents of their hearts] telling them where they was, and so forth; when He said Himself that He was God, He could not lie. ...And when He declared that sign before the true Jew, the real true Jew said that was the sign of the Son of God, the King of Israel. When He did it to the Samaritans, they declared it was the sign of the Messiah. But remember, He said, "Don't you go to any Gentile." And not one time did He ever do it before a Gentile. Why? This is the end of the Gentile age. That was the end of the Jews.

This is the end of the Gentiles. No where through history since, but now is the hour. And America you're receiving your call. Mark it in your Book, and find out. There's nothing left for America but judgment. They've sinned away the day of grace. Exactly right. You believe me to be His servant, mark that down.

The Queen Of The South - 06/20 1958

And the best defense that we have is America closing up the barroom, clothing their women, getting back to the church, and back to the Bible; it'll break up all this hoodlum and juvenile delinquency..., and bring God back to the nation in an old fashion revival, if we'd just do it. But you're trying to figure something else. Man is always trying to work out his own way. God's going to have His way, regardless of what man does.

A Greater Than Solomon Is Here - 06/25 1958

Do you believe that we are living in one of the most wicked, and adulternous generations? Certainly, we are. As I've said many times, that this nation can never escape the damnation, and wrath of God. I'm an American. Many of the Branhams are buried yonder on the fields, blowed up in the wars. And if it was to come tonight to make a choice, America's my country. I love it. But I don't love the sins that it's doing. God loves America, but He hates her sin. And sin is a reproach to any nation, and don't think because our forefathers, at Plymouth Rock, founded this upon the principles that it did, that we escape judgment. Israel was God's own beloved wife, and she paid for her sin. David was a man after God's own heart; he paid for his sin, and we'll pay for our sin.

If God doesn't judge America for her unrighteousness, as the infinite, holy God, He'd be duty-bound to resurrect Sodom and Gomorrah and apologize for sinking them and burning them up. Certainly, we're bound for judgment. There's no way out of it. So just get ready to escape the damnation of the wrath of God, by fleeing to Jesus Christ.

What Hearest Thou Elijah? - 04/12 1959

You know what, I say this with reverence, not to you people, not at all; my voice is going out in radio land, but America is burnt over. It has been combed, and gleaned, and glided, and fished, and pulled, and so forth till it's just about ready for judgment now. That's right. The next thing is judgment; and we're going to get it; just remember that.

Why? - 08/13 1959

There was a God in Israel. There was a prophet in Israel. But it was because of the king's stubbornness. It was because of his wickedness and his willful sin, that he didn't come and consult God about it. And he lost his life.

So is it today. We don't need so many UNs. If we are a Christian nation, let's call God on the scene. Sure there is Balm in Gilead - There is a God in America. There's a God here. It's because of the stubbornness of the people that they don't want to consult Him. They'd rather take the advice of some intellectual student, than to come to the blessed Holy Spirit that God sent to the earth. It's the reason that we are in such a condition today. It's not because there isn't a God, it's not because the Holy Spirit isn't still real, it's because the stubbornness of the people. It's because they want to sin. It's because they desire to do those things. That's what's in their heart.

Throne Of Mercy And Judgement - 01/08 1961

Canada, you precious people from Canada, if America keeps going on, Canada will be as lowdown as America after while. Get around the borders of Canada anywhere, and you got that American atmosphere. This America is the prostitute of the nations. That's exactly what she is, and she's going to be worse than ever now. She's coming to her end. The Bible speaks of her doom, tells how she's going to be: America: lowdown, rotten, filthy, no good. That's exactly right. She's been a great nation. She's carried the Gospel message. What makes her the way she is? Because she's turned down the Gospel message and rejected the truth. She's horrible. She's got it coming; don't worry. I seen it in the vision as THUS SAITH THE LORD. It's coming. She's going to pay for her sins.

Back when America was America, she was a great nation. The greatest the world's ever known since Israel, was America; but she sure has polluted herself now. She's rejected the message.

Jezebel Religion - 03/19 1961

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 Word, and by His prophets, that He'd give them a land. And they 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.

And so is this great nation of ours. We come here, and on Plymouth Rock this nation was founded on freedom of religion because our forefathers had fled Roman persecution of the modern Jezebel system, and had come up, and stood many great persecutions and martyrdom under that false system of Jezebel.

What did they do for Israel? He made Israel the most mightiest nation in the world, and she stayed that way until she got out of the will of God. What did He do with America? He made her the mightiest nation in the world until she's getting out of the will of God: parallel, one to the other exactly.

What's God done in America? Sent revival after revival, revival after revival. Ministers has preached the Word, tried to call people back to God. And what did they do? The same thing Israel done: spurned it, made fun of them, called them holy-rollers, throwed them in jail.

Questions And Answers, May 27, 1962

We know that we're facing something. I know it, you know it. I don't know which way to turn. You remember about four years ago, in Chicago one day, the Spirit of the Lord came upon me and I said, "This is it! And the revival is over, and America has turned down her opportunity." It's on tape. "And there won't be no more. Her last opportunity, she's turned down." ...And so just watch what's happened since then, see, the revival has stopped.

I said that over at Blue Lake the other night, and a little fellow got back up the next morning, said, "Brother Branham might say the Pentecostals has had it, but not me! Glory to God! Hallelujah," and on and on. See, but the little fellow just didn't know which end of the horn he was blowing from. See, he doesn't understand. See, he doesn't know. It's all right, enthused, that's perfectly all right. But look around! What are they doing? What's the matter with the people? What's happened to the revival? What's happened to Billy Graham, Oral Roberts, the rest of them? Where is the revival going on? It's finished!

The smoke is done settled up. The seeds are sowed. The meeting is over. The fires are burnt down. (In the old temple of Rome, in vesta, when the fires went out at the altars, the merchants went home.) Now, we see the revival is not on. It isn't the enthusiasm.

Then I think about the river in 1936, I think what He said. What happened there? Many of you know. I was just a boy, and of baptizing my first baptism when that Angel of the Lord came down and stood over where I was at. Some people said, "You didn't see it." Then science proved that it was so, see. Now, what did He say there? "As it was, as John the Baptist was sent forth to forerun the first coming of Christ, your Message will forerun the second Coming."

I've watched that across the earth, around the world it went. Just almost over night, revivals broke out everywhere. Revival fires was burning everywhere, there's been the greatest revival we've ever knowed of. But was there anything before that? Not a thing!

(Editor's Note:)
The ministry of William M. Branham, fullfilling many Scriptures, crowned what God promised to do in these last days - bringing a Message of 'warning before judgement'.

IS YOUR LIFE WORTHY OF THE GOSPEL - 63-0630

And, tonight, that's the reason this nation stays. She is doomed. There is no hope for it, at all. She's crossed the line between judgment and mercy. And she's elected in what she has here, to control the nation. And she is rotten to the core. Her politics is rotten. The morals of this nation is lower than anything I can think of. And her religious system is rottener than the morals. She becomes, in doing this, she has now joined herself, all these churches, and of the nation, into the federation of churches, and has taken the mark of the beast. What a thing! Why? Christ give them the opportunity, "Come to My feast," the feast of Pentecost, which means "fifty."

The Falling Apart Of The Word - 12/16 1962 and 04/12 1963

(1962) Russia wants a scientific genius for their anointed messiah this Christmas. That's what they want to be given. India wants a messiah who can feed them and clothe them without working. America, what do you want? What's your opinion, America? You been crying for a messiah. You been crying for a messiah, what do you want? You got what you wanted. You wanted a politician, and you got it. Now, what are you going to do with it? He's going to skin you; that's exactly what it's going to do, going to send you to your grave. You wanted it; you got your desire. Now, what are you going to do with it?

It's on your hands now: modern Ahab and Jezebel. The very thing that you run here for freedom, you pulled yourself right back into it again, but that's what you wanted. You wanted some flattop Ricky, modern Elvis of the day; you've got it. You want a smart, educated politician with a genius brain; you got it.

America's so set on education, not the Bible, on education. The churches are so built upon educational theology, some kind of a manmade system, creeds. And the Pentecostals drifted right into that same thing, just like driftwood upon the waters going over the dam. Right. You want creed; you don't want truth.

The Way Of A True Prophet - 01/19 1963

We've done something like Israel did. They made a alliance with their enemies. First, they had to get away from the Word before they could do that. And it just goes to show how far America has gotten away from the Word.

Trying To Do God A Service Without His Will - 01/19 1963

They said they was going to America, "God bless America, it's a Nation, it's a Christian country." It's a million miles from being a Christian country. I don't even pray for it. How can I pray for it, and it won't repent under the mighty powers of God demonstrated before it, and denying, and closing the doors to it, and walking away? I commit it to God. And she's going further away, and now she's going to sink. Just watch what happens.

The Laodicean Church Age - Published 1965

Then in the sixth vision there arose up in America a most beautiful, but cruel woman. She held the people in her complete power. I believed that this was the rise of the Roman Catholic Church, though I knew it could possibly be a vision of some woman rising in great power in America due to a popular vote by women.

The last and seventh vision was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America.

The New York Tragedy

Denial will never alter the fact that after September 11, 2001 the WORLD will NEVER be the same. Occurrences of this nature are "turning points" in world history. How many more must die before man realizes that the only real "hiding place" is in Jesus Christ. Unfortunately, the vast majority of mankind will NEVER accept this. They will keep on trying and keep on failing to bring peace in their way instead of God's way.

With the advent of the 19th century the world began to shrink in size. With the astounding increase in the speed of travel, war-time technology and 'real-time' communications the 20th century saw the earth transformed into a single global community. What happens on the other side of the globe now impacts us as if it happened in our own back yard or next door. And more than ever we realize that what happens half way around the earth can also happen in our own back yard. The New York, Washington and Pennsylvania tragedies are proof that all of us can be targets of those who dis-like our faith, our way of life or our government.

In 1953 - 48 years before it happened, God's prophet, William M. Branham warned of something that would happen in New York. Africa Trip Report - 11/09 1953

Now, there's something about New York City. Now, you watch. Remember, there's something about New York City. Don't forget that, you hear? All right. I had just left New York, New York.

Twice he mentions "there's something about New York City". After saying it the first time Bro. Branham pauses for a long time before repeating it and warning the people "watch" and not "forget it". What happened in New York, Washington, Pennsylvania and has been happening around the world is the fulfillment of another prophecy Brother Branham made in 1965. He prophesied of a time when "insanity would rule".

And Knoweth It Not - 08/15 1965
So it throws the whole world into insanity. The whole thing's insane. And it's so gradually crept in till the people don't know it.

Let me prophesy something to you just before it comes to pass. The whole world is groping in insanity, and will get worse, and worse, and worse until it'll be a bunch of maniacs, and it's almost that way now.

The Oddball - 06/14 1964e
I was thinking the other day, who today is not a nut? You're somebody's nut. I believe the world is completely going insane. Did you know, it's a time that people can't judge between right and wrong, or truth or error? Do you know the politicians can't judge right and wrong? You see them keeping quiet on this voting the Bible back into the schools? They don't know which way their politics are going to blow.

God's Provided Place Of Worship - 04/25 1965
Look at this teenage insane. Why, we had a... I told you the other day, they was taking an analysis there of the schools in Arizona where I live, and eighty percent of the children in school is mentally retarded. What will their children be? We can't have another generation. We're at the end. Jesus said these things would come. Look at all the televisions and things getting these fictitious things in order. It'll come a time, I predict, that people will be completely totally insane; the world will be.

Elijah - 03/01 1955
A great cobalt bomb, the cobalt around the atomic bomb can be shot up out of a--a missile out into the air yonder by our enemies, in a force out there; in a few hours, the entire earth will be totally annihilated. Just let the winds start blowing, there can't be a living thing live around it, and just completely annihilate the earth, could be done just in a few minute's time. The very enemy, the very godless, heartless, brutal, insane enemy of ours, has that thing in their hands tonight. And why do you trust in the flesh of horses? Why do you trust in the atomic power? Why do you trust in the things of this world, in your houses, in your places, in your positions. Take God at His Word, and ride on It through the atoms yonder into the spheres yonder into the heavens. Whatever God has promised, God will do. Do you believe it tonight?

The Separation Of Church And State

It has been said and remains true yet today: "The People who refuse to be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants". Any attempt made to separate church and state in any nation which stands for and represents "Christianty" on the world stage, will eventually become the "habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. " [Revelation 18:2]. The fight by those under Satanic influence, to separate church and state is producing exactly this kind of "America", a virtual "Satan's Eden". The mainstream formal churches "fall for everything and stand for nothing".

Conclusion


It's a sad epitaph indeed, for so great a Nation. But after thousands of years, the Proverb is still true: "Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin [is] a reproach to any people" (Proverbs 14:34). Like Israel, America's sins have separated her from God. For Israel there is a restoration, but for America there will be no restoration. The intellectuals, politicians and many compromising churches are making America a better place in which to sin. It's a stench in the nostrils of God. The Nation has turned down the Word of the Lord for the last time - They will not have The WORD (Jesus Christ) to rule over them. PREPARE TO MEET THY GOD!

To those who wish to escape the wrath of God, to be poured out upon America, REPENT and be Baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost - the Life of God in you, guiding you into all Truth. Walk humbly with the Lord and stay true to the WORD - feed on it daily.
