Come Heal This Land

Vernon Howell Teaching Bible

Thank you for stopping by our website. After waiting for many years the LORD has directed to reorganize and rename His Church. We are now called The BRANCH, The LORD (YHVH) Our Righteousness as directed in our By-Laws. On April 19, 1993, The Branch Davidian Seventh-day Adventist Church underwent a judgment of God and lost its leadership and headquarters.

Vernon Howell, aka David Koresh, claimed to  be the lamb of Revelation Chapter 5 verse 6. A close study of this verse and chapter reveals a completely different understanding as to who this individual is (See "The Brazen Serpent" on this website). Koresh received judgment from the LORD because he tried to usurp the position of not only Christ the Word, but that of the Holy Ghost, the Author and Interpreter of the Word. David Koresh boldly claimed that he "had the mind of God, that he sat in the seat  of God, and that he was God (in human flesh)." See Ezekiel 28. Because of this bold claim Koresh and his followers suffered the judgment outlined in  Ezekiel chapter 9 where it states that old and young are utterly slain because they did not sigh and cry for the abominations that were being done within the church by the leader(s). For Koresh to declare that he was the lamb of Revelation 5:6 was truly an abomination and the Executive Council of the church and his followers did not sigh and cry against this abominable declaration!

In this website we will attempt to explain what happened here at Mt Carmel to the Branch Davidian Seventh Day Adventist Church and why it has suffered such a devastating and tragic fate. Much of  the events that transpired were prophesied in Scripture and reiterated by the past leaders of the Church. See "The Omega of Apostasy" and  "The Brazen Serpent".

"Judgment begins at the house of God," as stated in I Peter 4:17. Our Church underwent a judgment and a purification from its apostate leadership. Now, under divine direction, it has been reorganized under the new leadership appointed by God to rebuild what was destroyed and to restore the truth as it is in Christ the BRANCH and His Holy Spirit, The BRANCH HE and SHE The LORDS (YHVH) Our Righteousness (Jeremiah 23:5, 6; 33:15, 16).

Benjamin Roden, the founder and spiritual leader of the Branch Davidian Seventh Day Adventist Movement prophesied that:

"Christ the Word, in the Branch message would be crucified afresh by his own professed followers, the leadership, and be raised to glorious exaltation and victory, to the shame of His enemies." 


The Lord said, "And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:14, 15.

We welcome you to study our unique Scriptural beliefs and to learn of the true reasons why the Branch Davidian tragedy happened. Hopefully all will not have been for naught. May you learn that this event was divinely orchestrated and ordained to serve a greater purpose than we could all have imagined. And that out of this cursed tragedy would come healing and restoration to the whole earth through repentance and forgiveness and acknowledging that The BRANCH is KING of kings and LORD of lords!

All Pastors, Ministers, Prayer Warriors and Intercessors are invited to Mt. Carmel to attend our weekly Sabbath meetings starting at 11 AM Sunday morning until about 2 pm. We also have prayer meeting every morning at 9 am for an hour. We keep the yearly Feasts of the LORD Passover, Pentecost, Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles in there appointed times (will be annouced in season by email and posted online). Humbly join us in worship, study, prayer and supplication to bring about repentance and healing to this land and the community of Waco.


We have all suffered a great wound in our heart and soul because of the events that transpired here on April 19, 1993. Many have asked why did this happen to us? Why did those innocent children have to die? Why did their parents allow their children to die such a horrible death? Better still, why did the government handle the situation the way they did?

The Scriptures tell us, "Know the Truth and the Truth shall set you free." Come one come all and participate in the freedom of knowing the Truth about David Koresh and The Branch Davidians. Knowing the Truth will help to set the land free, the people free, and the Waco area free from the curse that this extra ordinary event has put upon us all.


Please come and help us rededicate our Church to raise our LORD and Savior to His rightful position once again here at Mt. Carmel. Help us plead that the LORD will forgive us for "Crucifying Him Afresh Before the Whole World" when our leaders rejected Christ the WORD in The BRANCH Message and accepted David Koresh instead. May He forgive us and remove the curse that Koresh and his teachings have brought upon The Branch Davidian Seventh Day Adventist Church and the Waco Area!
