                          The Tightening Noose

There are those who would have us believe that Communism is dead, which can never be as long as there are jews alive on earth. At any rate lets review history a little and see what is really going on.

On May 27, 1971, Mr. William Beecher, on Television’s Washington Week In Review, stated: “Another chapter of a mysterious case of 60 large missile silos in the Soviet Union unfolded this week, leaving the public, if anything, more mystified than ever.”

While this may be a correct appraisal of the attitude of the general public to such a disclosure, its meaning is crystal clear, nevertheless, to those who are knowledgeable as to Soviet intentions. Mr. Beecher went on to state that, by mid April more than forty silo holes ha been discovered and, by mid May, the total topped sixty.

Concern was privately expressed by a number of senior government officials, who recognized that this stepped-up military building program could be for the purpose of deploying new multiple warhead missiles which Russia has been testing rot he last eighteen months. They felt that this could be a potential threat to America’s Minuteman missiles, especially in a first strike. Where the Russian delegates at the SALT Talks in Vienna were asked about this construction they replied: “Don’t worry, We are only modernizing as you Americans have been doing with your Minutemen.”

If Washington officials fall for this explanation, they will only demonstrate the fact that they are completely out of step with reality an hopelessly enmeshed in a web of intrigue over which they no longer have any control. Spokesmen for the Soviet Communists (read that Jews) have long declared that the continued existence of their form of government, in Russia, depends upon revolutions in other countries, including the United States.

They have proclaimed their intention to use every possible means to bring about such overthrows of governments and they have avowed, as a doctrine, that no agreement they make or sign with a non-revolutionary government can have any binding force. These sentiments, which have often been forcefully expressed, are in exact parallel with that of the Soviet spokesman Menjinsky, who stated years ago: “AS LONG AS THERE ARE IDIOTS WHO TAKE OUR SIGNATURE SERIOUSLY, AND PUT THEIR FAITH IN IT, WE MUST PROMISE ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THAT IS ASKED, SO LONG AS WE GET SOMETHING TANGIBLE IN EXCHANGE.”

In view of this Soviet policy, which commits them to unmitigated double-dealing, of what value are the time spent and the expense involved in containing the SALT talks? These Talks have now been recessed for a short time and, in the meanwhile, the Soviets are steam rolling along with their construction of missile silos and the missiles to be placed in them. Even if, as a result of continued SALT Talks, an agreement is reached, it will be binding only one the United States. It will not obligate the men in the Kremlin, who feel free to ignore or renege on any commitments they make when it suits them to do so.

Knowing that the Soviets are definitely pressing forward to achieve a first strike capability, it would serve their purposes well if the advice given by their SALT Talks delegation is accepted, that we are not to worry. If they attain their planned objective, and a first strike assault were carried out, there would be less left to worry!

There is need to be reminded that Paul declared World Communism would come into being as “the contrivance of Satan.” (The Sure Word of Prophecy, Destiny Publishers, Merrimac, Mass. 01860) This insidious sociopolitical program is also identified with “the working of Satan” and Paul warned that it would exercise “all power and sings and lying wonders” to deceive and delude its intended victims. (2 Thessalonians 2:9, Armageddon: Rendevous With Destiny, Quarterly Review, First Quarter 1969, pp. 120-147, Destiny Publishers, Merrimac, Mass. 01860)

When the Jews questioned our Lord’s prerogative to carry on His ministry on earth, He told them to their face that they were of their father the devil: “He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own? For he is a liar and the father of it.” (John 8:44)

Yahshua’s accusation that the Jews who rejected Him, and were plotting His death, were of their father the devil, can apply with equal exactness to those who have embraced the ideology of Communism. Years of fruitless endeavors to reach totally satisfactory agreements have proven the word of the Soviet leaders worthless. As it is with their father, the Devil, they are liars, holding treaties and signed contracts in contempt as mere scraps of paper.

If you have ever had any business dealings with the Jews you probably noticed that they very seldom kept their word, even a written contract, in the business you conducted with them. Well the reason that their word is not worth a plug nickel, so-to-speak, is because of the Kol Nidre Oath they take every year when they celebrate the Day of Atonement.

Kol Nidre: It is the prologue of the Day of Atonement services in the synagogues. It is recited three times by the standing congregation in concert with chanting rabbis at the alter. After the recital of the "Kol Nidre" (All Vows) prayer the Day of Atonement religious ceremonies follow immediately. The Day of Atonement religious observances are the highest holy days of the "Jews" and are celebrated as such throughout the world. The official translation into English of the "Kol Nidre" (All Vows) prayer is as follows: "ALL VOWS, OBLIGATIONS, OATHS, ANATHEMAS, whether called 'konam,' 'konas,' or by any other name, WHICH WE MAY VOW, OR SWEAR, OR PLEDGE, OR WHEREBY WE MAY BE BOUND, FROM THIS DAY OF ATONEMENT UNTO THE NEXT, (whose happy coming we await), we do repent. MAY THEY BE DEEMED ABSOLVED, FORGIVEN, ANNULLED, AND VOID AND MADE OF NO EFFECT; THEY SHALL NOT BIND US NOR HAVE POWER OVER US. THE VOWS SHALL NOT BE RECKONED VOWS; THE OBLIGATIONS SHALL NOT BE OBLIGATORY; NOR THE OATHS BE OATHS.

The implications, inferences and innuendoes of the "Kol Nidre" (All Vows) prayer are referred to in the Talmud in the Book of Nedarim, 23a‑23b as follows: "AND HE WHO DESIRES THAT NONE OF HIS VOWS MADE DURING THE YEARS SHALL BE VALID, let him stand at the beginning of the year and DECLARE, EVERY VOW WHICH I MAKE IN THE FUTURE SHALL BE NULL (1). (HIS VOWS ARE THEN INVALID) PROVIDING THAT HE REMEMBERS THIS AT THE TIME OF THE VOW." (Emphasis in original) A footnote (1) relates: "(1)...THE LAW OF REVOCATION IN ADVANCE WAS NOT MADE PUBLIC." (Emphasis in original text)

The greatest study of the "Kol Nidre" (All Vows) prayer was made by Theodor Reik, a pupil of the [I]nfamous Jewish Dr. Sigmund Freud. The analysis of the historic, religious and psychological background of the "Kol Nidre" (All Vows) prayer by Professor Reik presents the Talmud in its true perspective. This study is contained in "The Ritual, Psycho‑Analytical Studies." In the chapter on the Talmud, page 163, he states: "THE TEXT WAS TO THE EFFECT THAT ALL OATHS WHICH BELIEVERS TAKE BETWEEN ONE DAY OF ATONEMENT AND THE NEXT DAY OF ATONEMENT WERE DECLARED INVALID.”

The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia confirms that the "Kol Nidre" (All Vows) prayer has no spiritual value as might be believed because it is recited in synagogues on the Day of Atonement as the prologue of the religious ceremonies which follow it. The secular significance of the "Kol Nidre" (All Vows) prayer is forcefully indicated by the analysis in Vol. VI, page 441: "THE KOL NIDRE HAS NOTHING WHATEVER TO DO WITH THE ACTUAL IDEA OF THE DAY OF attained to extraordinary solemnity and popularity by reason of the fact that it was THE FIRST PRAYER RECITED ON THIS HOLIEST OF DAYS."

It is indeed a great pity that our governmental officials at Washington entertain the idea that it is possible to negotiate helpful trade relationships with Communist countries and come to them which will result in peaceful coexistence with the men in the Kremlin. No commitments they make will ever be permanently honored, for, as declared by the Lord, “Thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee.” (Deuteronomy 33:29) The Kremlin leaders are not more capable of acting righteously than the Father of Lies would be of displaying traits of honesty. These evil men are past masters at doing the bidding of their Satanic mentor, first to confuse and then to conquer or destroy.

A wise old saying is :”He must have a long spoon who must sup with the Devil.” No spoon is long enough, however, to keep the dinner from being subverted who sups with perfidious Communists!

In the mean time, the Communists (read that jew) continue to press forward toward their goal f total victory in every sector into which they infiltrate, opening up new fronts at will to implicate us in circumstances which are detrimental to our national integrity and eventually entangle us in a holocaust of world-wide conflict.

This threat against our nation will crystalize into consummate action when the Kremlin leaders decide they have attained a nuclear first strike capability. Its approach will involve major moves which the Soviets will make in the middle East. (See Book of Ezekiel, chapters 38 & 39)

Let us review the sequence of developments which have interacted upon history and have brought us to this crucial juncture in world affairs. As we recapitulate the connecting links in the overall chain of events, we continue to marvel at the precision of the chronological pattern of unfoldment.

World War I began on August 4-5, 1914, at the terminal of Seven Times (2520 years) after Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon became King of Countries at the termination of the seventh century B.C., it was 1260 (one-half of Seven Times), in days after the assassination of Archduke Francis Pardenand of Austria, on June 28, 1914 (which made World War I inevitable), and Jerusalem was taken from the Turks by General Allenby, on December 9, 1917 A.D., which was the 1335th year of the Hegira.

With the onset of world war in 1914, peace was taken from the earth and a process of desolation set in. The number of desolation, and the desolator, is 1290 (Daniel 12:11). Seven is a factor stamped on”the times and seasons of the Scriptures in such a manner that it marks the spiritual perfection of the Divine prophecies.” (Fire To Fruition, by William O. Lay, Jr., page 5)

Thus, we find that 7 x 1290 solar days (1308.8), after August 4-5, 1914 brought us to the date of September 3, 1939, 25 years later, marking the beginning of World War II. Twenty five years later; just fifty years, to the day, form the beginning of World War I; the Tonkin Bay incident took place off the Vietnamese coast, on August 4-5, 1964. That fateful occurrence ensnared the United States in the preliminary skirmishes of World War III.

Note, however, that 7 x 1290 day, on the solar scale, from the beginning of World War II, fell on October 3, 1964. That date, two months after August 4-5, 1964, set the pattern for the intensification of desolation. As shown in the above mentioned editorial, it was the date that President Johnson declared his intention to establish a no-win policy in the war in Vietnam. The subsequent results have been devastating in their effect upon both the armed forces and the people of the United States.

The long period of Seven Times (2520) of Gentile rule began to end in 1914, with the eruption of World War I. A Jubilee of fifty years extended from the outbreak of world-wide conflict to the opening phase of World War III. In the midst of this great Jubilee Week of Years (7 x 7 + 1), World War II erupted on September 3, 1939.

The application of the Seven Times (2520) measure, in days, from the beginning of World War III; on August 4-5, 1964, yields some very interesting terminal dates in the year 1971 on the three scales of time: lunar, mean and solar. In “A Shining Light,” the Preface in the booklet, Through Fire To Fruition, this informative delineation appears:

“On lunar time, dating from a given event of the past, we arrive at a terminal dating on which a related event will occur, but it will be seen by the watcher as in the moonlight; not clear, not distinct, nevertheless, outlined as by the light of the moon, giving just a general idea of its shape and form.

“Applying the mean time measure from the same given event in the past, the terminal date will give a more clear conception of what may be expected when the day fully comes; for this is the breaking of the dawn when that which was seen under the moonlight is disclosed in more detail, although not clear-cut, not fully define; seen as by the light of the sun not yet fully risen.

“Finally, solar time from the given date expires when the predicated developments already indicate, as in the moonlight, and seen somewhat more clear, as at daybreak, are not clearly reveled, as the light of the sun at high noon. Thus all three scales of prophetic time periods, by which terminal datings are obtained, guide the watchers in their comprehension of the times and season.”

The respective terminals of the 2520 day-periods, on lunar, mean and solar time, from the beginning of World War III on August 4-5, 1964, are as follows:

The lunar terminal: May 24-25, 191

The mean terminal: June 29-30, 1971

The solar terminal: August 4-5, 1971

The newspaper headlines of May 24, 1971 read: TOP LEVEL SOVIET MISSION ARRIVES IN EGYPT TODAY FOR TALKS. Then the statement: “Soviet President Nikolai V. Podgorny will arrive here today at the head of a top-level government party and military delegation for talks with President Anwar Sadat and other Egyptians.”

Two days later, on May 27, 1971, the results of the conversations were announced and the newspaper headlines on May 28th reported: EGYPT AND RUSSIANS SIGN A 15-YEAR TREATY.

What the news reports disclosed about the wording and length of this treaty permits only one conclusion to be drawn, which is that the Russian delegation arrived in Cairo with t treat already prepared for the signature of the Egyptian President to be affixed to the document. In other words, Egypt’s Anwar Sadat had no choice but to sign on the dotted line if continued Soviet aid was to be forthcoming.

Evidently the Russians were confident that this would prove to be the case, knowing that the Egyptians must have their military support. President Podgorny’s elation at the time of the signing of the treaty bears out this deduction, especially so in view of the Egyptian President’s subdued attitude which was commented upon in connection with television pictures.

What does this development on the lunar terminal of 2520 days after the commencement of World War III portend? Certainly it is a rather bright moonlight view which augurs ominously concerning what is to develop on the mean and solar terminals. It undoubtedly signals the official completion of the takeover of Egypt by the northern power (Soviet Russia) as foretold by the Prophet Daniel: “He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt.” (Daniel 11:42-43)

The mean terminal, on June 29-30, 1971, should provide a more clear indication of Soviet intentions in their Middle East maneuvers. We are continually mindful of the fact that, according to Daniel 11:44, “tidings out of the east and out of the north” are to trouble Soviet Russia and cause the Kremlin to strike out in great fury. That development may be very near now.

August 4-5, 1971, the solar terminal date of 2520 days from the inception of World War III, is just seven years, to the day, from the Tonkin Bay incident. But prior to that solar terminal (August 4-5, 1971), there is a lunar terminal of 2520 days from October 3, 1964, when President Johnson instituted a no-win policy in the war in Vietnam. That date is July 22, 1971, which also ends 5 x 1290 solar days from the inception of the Period of Demolition that began on August 20, 1953, when the Soviets announced the explosion of their first hydrogen bomb. One year after July 21-22, 1971, the date at the top of the King’s Chamber in the Great Pyramid, which is July 23, 1972, will be reached. Will the remaining year of this Period of Demolition; that is, from July 22, 1971 to July 23, 1972; rove to be “the year of recompense for the controversy of Zion” when, according to Isaiah 34:8, “the Lord’s vengeance” will take on vehement proportions?

Or added significance is the fact that two important time cycles, from the initiation of world conflict on August 4-5, 1914, focus on July 17, 1971, which is just five days prior to the beginning of the final year of the Period of Demolition. They are 20 x 1040 and 13 x 1600. The first denotes expectation (20) multiplied by the fruition (1040). The second is rebellion, apostasy, disintegration (13), multiplied by 1600, the length of the Battle Line. (Revelation 14:20) This number (1600) denotes fullness of chastisement because of the sum of its multipliers (40 x 40 = 1600).

Therefore, the question persists: Do we have, in the length of the Battle Line, multiplied by the number of apostasy; a time measure which also involves both expectancy and fruition, chronological confirmation that the “year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion” (Isaiah 34:8) is indeed at hand?

All in all, the events of the summer of this outstanding year of 1971 will merit very close scrutiny and those who are watching will do well to keep alert, for August is the time of year when, according to 2 Samuel 11:1: “Kings go forth to battle.” We have ever reason to believe it was with this closing epoch in history in mind that the instructions were given to the Prophet Habakkuk: “Write the vision, and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that every one who passes may be able to read (it easily and quickly) as he hastens by. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, and it hastens to the end (fulfillment); for it because it will surely come, it will not be behind hand on its appointed day.” (Habakkuk 2:2-3, Amplified Bible)

Ferrar Fenton renders the last sentence: “If it lingers, yet wait, for it comes; it advances; it will not delay.” With remarkably precise prophetic foresight, Baruch described the “change of times” at the end of the age as a period marked by “vehemence, turbulence and the heat of indignation.” (Baruch 48:31-39) He prophesied that at such a time “the Judge will come and will not tarry.” Supporting testimony is given in the Epistle to the Hebrews (Chapter 10:37, Amplified Bible): “For still a little while; a very little while, and the Coming One will come and He will not delay.”

A thought-provoking reference to what is called the Everlasting Gospel is found in the Book of Revelation in the Scriptures. It is stated there that, as a set time, it is to be preached “unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people.” (Revelation 14:6) We are given to understand that this is the Gospel of glad tidings that is to be proclaimed with a loud voice when the hour of God’s judgment has come.
