explorethetwentiethcentury David Koresh was the American leader of the Branch Davidians, believing himself to be its final prophet. He created the group based at Mount Carmel Center near Waco, Texas, which took the name Branch Davidians. There he competed for dominance with another leader named George Roden, eventually coming out on top when Roden was jailed for murdering another rival. Roden then accused Koresh himself of seducing a 13-year-old girl in his compound, claiming that he had the parents' consent to make it a 'spiritual marriage'. However, it was a weapons violation that finally caught the eye of the FBI. They raided his compound in 1993, where a fire broke out that killed him and 79 other compound members. It is still widely debated who started the fire, with theories from the FBI, compound members, or even Koresh himself. #davidkoresh #koresh #branchdavidians #cult #wacosiege #fbi #prophet #religiouscult #history 3d

explorethetwentiethcentury The Branch Davidians are a religious cult that began in 1955, starting as a reform movement from the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. The movement believed themselves to be living in a time when Bible prophecies of a final divine judgment were coming to pass as a prelude to Christ's Second Coming. They formed a large compound near Waco, Texas, and forced all followers to live and stay there to learn the teachings. In 1993, the US military and Texas state law enforcement invaded the compound, after suspecting that the group was committing weapons violations. An intense gun battle erupted and the first invasion was called off, after the deaths of four government agents. They then returned for the famous Waco Siege, which became a 51 day standoff, with the FBI eventually launching an assault with tear gas. A fire engulfed one of the major compounds during the siege, and 76 people died, including their leader, David Koresh. It has been found that this and another Government siege was found to be the main motivation for the Oklahoma City Bombing. #thebranchdavidians #davidians #davidkoresh #cult #wacosiege #oklahomacitybombing #history 3d

Normal Trying to align with the stars
king_tmoney A gravitational force comes along it has a habit of drawing lesser gravitational units to itself. It then creates star clusters of personalities. This is indicative of great leaders throughout history who build around them a movement. In some cases the star clusters goes to the next step and the various stars begin to rotate around the central star. In this case these personalities have not just joined the path but have joined the central system.

_green_river_gary #davidkoresh #Cultleader #truecrime #truecrimecommunity #killer David Koresh was born Vernon Wayne Howell to an unwed teenage mother named Bonnie Clark, on August 17, 1959, in Houston, Texas. Initially raised by his grandparents in the Dallas suburb of Garland, the young Koresh attended the Church of Seventh Day Adventists.In his senior year, Koresh dropped out of Garland High School to take a carpentry job. While in his early 20s, he spent a short time in Los Angeles trying to make it as a rock star. When he returned to Houston, the Seventh Day Adventists kicked him out of the church.
In 1981, Koresh moved to Waco, Texas, and joined the Branch Davidians on their Mount Carmel compound. Koresh then had an affair with the sect's much older prophetess, Lois Roden. In 1984, he married a teenaged Branch Davidian named Rachel Jones, with whom he would have a son and two daughters. When Roden passed away, Koresh's and Roden's son, George, argued about who would take over the Branch Davidians. Koresh left the sect with his followers and lived in eastern Texas for a while. In 1987, he and a handful of his devotees returned to Mount Carmel heavily armed, and shot Roden. Roden survived. Koresh and his crew were tried for attempted murder, but were acquitted.In 1990, he legally changed his name from Howell to Koresh (after the Persian king) and became the Branch Davidians' leader. Koresh's teachings included the practice of "spiritual weddings" which enabled him to bed God-chosen female followers of all ages. Koresh had a dozen children with members other than his legal wife
As leader of the Branch Davidians, Koresh claimed he had cracked the code of the Seven Seals in the Book of Revelation, which predicted events leading to the apocalypse. He told his followers that the lord willed the Davidians to build an "Army of God." As a result, they started stockpiling weapons.On February 28, 1993, the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms raided the compound. A four-hour gunfight left six of Koresh's followers and four BATF agents dead. Believing he and the Davidians had opened the fifth seal of revelation, Koresh claimed it was time to kill God's faithful.
