Bible Believers’ Newsletter #630
“We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . .”
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
A Brother subscriber and contributor to this Newsletter wrote: “This is a holy convocation my brother wherein the God of glory is admired and glorified by the saints purchased with His blood. And whereas a gemstone mounted on a ring of gold is beautified, Christ alone, the chief corner stone of Sion, Elect and Precious, is exalted and glorified and worshipped. The ONE who forgave all our iniquities, who healed all of our diseases, cast out demons, made cripples and lame to walk, blind to see, deaf and dumb to hear and speak and preached the gospel of peace to the poor.
Day and night there are gun shots, wailing of sirens and all manner of evil; I believe we are experiencing Revelation 22:14-15, 16-17: “Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they might have right to the Tree of Life and may enter in through the gates into the City. For without are dogs (the kind that have infested the Roman Catholic clergy since the fourth century), and sorcerers, and whoremongers and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves and makes a lie.”
Then in verse 16: “The Lord said I Jesus have sent My angel (Hallelujah!), to testify these things to you in the churches. I am the root and offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. And the Spirit and the Bride say Come . . . (GLORY!) He which testifies these things says, Surely I come quickly. Amen”.
O my, the God of Amen said AMEN to His Word—“And I said, Even so, Come LORD JESUS”.
Isaiah 64:1 speaks of the mountains flowing down in volcanic eruptions at His Presence. See how His Presence caused one mountain to erupt in Iceland, not an explosion of 35 or 40 of the world’s greatest, no, just one eruption and He blew a little puff of that smoke and ash over Europe and shut down air traffic over that continent. And He said, “Surely I come quickly, Amen”.
He will show this world, this wicked adulterous, homosexual generation that He was never a second or third person in the Godhead, neither a twin nor a triplet; but that He is GOD. The ONE person of God who said, “I am a great King, says the Lord of hosts, and My Name—LORD JESUS CHRIST—is dreadful among the heathen”.
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.

‘We’ve found Noah’s Ark!’
April 27, 2010 — British scientists say ‘show us your evidence.’ Even so, the explorers who say they found seven large wooden compartments beneath snow and volcanic debris near the peak of Mount Ararat can be forgiven their excitement. ‘It’s not 100 per cent that it is Noah’s Ark, but we think it is 99.9 per cent that this is it,’ said Yeung Wing-cheung, a filmmaker working with the 15-strong team of fundamentalist Christians exploring the Turkish mountain. This picture released by the evangelical group claims to show one of the explorers examining part of a structure they claim might prove the existence of Noah’s Ark on Mount Ararat.
There are no external images of the site and the Hong Kong-based group refuse to say precisely where they made their discovery until the Turkish government designate it an archaeological site. They said wood taken from the site, which is more than 13,000ft above sea level, dates to 2,800BC. If it is the ark, the discovery would be the greatest in the history of archaeology and bear out one of the most famous stories in the Bible. The team of Turks and Chinese researchers from Noah’s Ark Ministries International in Hong Kong say they made the discovery on Ararat—the biblical resting place of the ark—in October. At a press conference yesterday to announce the discovery, another team member, Panda Lee, said: ‘I saw a structure built with plank-like timber. Each plank was about eight inches wide. I could see tenons, proof of ancient construction predating the use of metal nails. We walked about 100 metres to another site. I could see broken wood fragments embedded in a glacier, and some 20 metres long.’ The structure had several compartments, some with wooden beams, the team said. The wooden walls of one compartment were smooth and curved while the video shown by the explorers revealed doors, staircases and nails. . .

ETS goes down with Goldman Sucks
April 28, 2010 — Five months ago Australia’s glib-tongued Prime Minister proclaimed the so-called “climate change” HOAX and SCAM of the international bankster’s “the greatest moral challenge of our time”! It is in fact the greatest amoral challenge of our time, sucking $800 million p. a. on climate change research and more on carbon geo-sequestration. And every state has its own bloated climate change and energy bureaucracies.
Remember, Goldman Sucks is the financial power behind carbon trading worldwide:
- Goldman owns 10 per cent of Al Gore’s Chicago carbon exchange;
- Al Gore’s partners in his Generation Investment Management hedge fund in London are all former Goldman Sachs executives—David Blood, Mark Ferguson and Peter Harris;
- Malcolm Turnbull, the man who almost delivered the ETS, by cutting a deal with Rudd without his party’s support, is Goldman Sachs’ main man in Australia.
In “The Great American Bubble Machine” published in the July 2009 edition of Rolling Stone magazine, author Matt Taibbi characterized Goldman Sachs as “a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.”
“The formula is relatively simple: Goldman positions itself in the middle of a speculative bubble, selling investments they know are crap.—They’ve been pulling this same stunt over and over since the 1920s—and now they’re preparing to do it again, creating what may be the biggest and most audacious bubble yet.—the new game in town, the next bubble, is in carbon credits—a groundbreaking new commodities bubble, disguised as an ‘environmental plan,’ called cap-and-trade. The new carbon-credit market is a virtual repeat of the commodities-market casino that’s been kind to Goldman, except it has one delicious new wrinkle: If the plan goes forward as expected, the rise in prices will be government-mandated. Goldman won’t even have to rig the game. It will be rigged in advance.”
The ETS was always a scam, an attempt to create a new global derivatives bubble on a trade in thin air, to replace the derivatives bubbles on real estate and stocks that are imploding. . . “If Rudd and Wong dropped the ETS because they were afraid of being drawn into another Goldman Sachs fraud, that’s good. While they are at it, they should drop all the other financial system frauds which their policies are aiding and abetting—such as the privatisation of public assets and the private construction of infrastructure, which funnels money into banks like Rothschild and Macquarie, or the government manipulation of the property market, through tax breaks, grants and direct investment, which is driving up property prices to support the faked balance sheets of Australia’s major banks.” Full story: cecaust.com.au
Financial Reform: the Final Con Game
April 26, 2010 — There are those who have been talking about a single global regulator for years and as a result of the 2008 Credit Crisis, there have been calls to protect you and me from future banking crises through new financial reform. However, we had better consider its real impact. It is not about protecting you and me it is about changing the national regulatory laws of America to conform to a world governmental system and globalizing the last barrier separating individual nation-states. It is about a major power grab of America’s financial assets.
Hank Paulson, our second treasury secretary from Wall Street, had issued his “Blueprint for a Modernized Financial Regulatory System” in March, 2008. It called for a total revamping of all of America’s assets that were not under control of the Federal Reserve: the entire mortgage industry, banks that were not regulated by the Fed, credit unions, state chartered thrifts, and the insurance industry. The Fed was at the center of all the newly proposed commissions. In other words, a total take over of financial assets not under their control was at stake.
Is anyone putting two plus two together? The Federal Reserve is a private corporation so they do not issue an annual report and no one knows who their shareholders are. This company controls the entire monetary system of the United States which means they create the ups and the downs in the stock market and business cycle. They control credit. If they want to destroy the small businessman, they just stop issuing credit—like they are doing now. The Paulson Blueprint was blatant about them seizing control over all the other major financial assets they don’t control. . .
Through the enlarged structure of the Bank for International Settlements and the newly restructured and empowered global regulatory agency, the Financial Stability Board, all of the world’s assets are being shifted to a place where they are fair game for central bankers. All you have to do is study the arrangements on the national and global level. This is the con game of all the centuries—it is a colossal robbery of our nation and people.

Can the US beat Israel at their Game?
April 26, 2010 — In December 1948, Albert Einstein and 27 other concerned Jews urged us “not to support this latest manifestation of fascism”. . .
Well-planned provocations have long been Tel Aviv’s core competence. For a skilled agent provocateur, an anticipated reaction can become a powerful weapon in the arsenal of the provocateur. In response to a mass murder on American soil, even a moderately competent game theorist could foresee that the US would dispatch its military to avenge that attack.
With phony intelligence “fixed” around a preset goal, a game-theory algorithm could predict that our military could be redirected to invade Iraq, a nation that played no role in the attack. Therein lies the game theory-enabled treachery imbedded at the core of this duplicitous relationship.
Happily, our national security apparatus now comprehends the “how” of this non-transparent treason. Concern at its common source is rampant in senior military ranks. Israel and pro-Israelis have been confirmed as those who fixed the intelligence that took us to war on false pretenses. Those “in the know” now grasp that Truman’s recognition of this enclave was part of a multi-decade fraud that remains ongoing as Israel seeks to induce us into Iran and even Pakistan.
No one likes to be played for the fool. Yet that’s how Israel treated all those it befriended. That includes not only other nations but also those in the broader faith communities deceived to believe they share an identity of interest with this “latest manifestation of fascism.” Intelligence agencies are fast coming to recognize the shared mindset of those who prey on the goodwill and trust of others. Their distrust of the US is now morphing into sympathy and pity. . .
Given every opportunity to conduct its affairs consistent with international law and standards of human decency, this extremist enclave chose another course. As both an enabler and a target of these religious extremists, the US has a special obligation to take the lead in withdrawing recognition and securing the nuclear arsenal now under Israeli control.
Further delay only heightens the probability of another agent provocateur operation on a scale of 9/11—doubtless featuring yet another evidentiary trail that points to “Islamo” fascists. With more than 80% of the US Congress declaring an “unbreakable bond” with Israel, Americans face a perilous future in which we need help from other nations to pressure our leaders to act promptly.
We were warned more than six decades ago. Now is the time to heed that warning. Full story: rebelnews.org
Comment: This video shows how Israelites descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob lived and worked in harmony with their Semitic Arab kinsmen for thousands of years until Rothschild began colonizing Palestine by non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews after Britain was deceived, and betrayed her Arab allies.
Is Israel Wiretapping America?
April 20, 2010 — It’s bad enough that the government can listen to you whenever they want. There is an even more troubling side to this Orwellian reality. Israeli companies are wiretapping America. Authorized by our government, they are doing the actual work of listening to and recording the phone, email, and internet communications of at least 100 nations, including America. . . America’s largest telecom companies, AT&T and Verizon, have outsourced the job of eavesdropping through their networks, which carry billions of American communications daily, in cooperation with the National Security Agency’s (NSA) surveillance program. The spy job for these major companies was outsourced “to two mysterious companies with very troubling foreign connections.”
AT&T uses a company called Narus to keep records of everything said on their systems. Narus was founded by an Israeli entrepreneur in Israel with ties to Unit 800 (the NSA of Israel). Verizon’s spy system also relies on an Israeli company named Verint. The founder of Verint is an FBI fugitive who remains so. Congress granted retroactive immunity to these companies (AT&T and Verizon) for allowing their systems to be used to spy on American citizens. Stated plainly, American consumers are subject to warrantless surveillance by Israeli-founded companies without Congressional oversight or public knowledge! . . . an “Israeli spin-off” of Verint is able to do “advanced voice-mining” that finds one person’s voice in a mountain of intercepted calls. . . much of their bugging equipment is now secretly hardwired into the American telecommunications system.’ . .
The time must come, and soon, that Americans realize that the “bonds of loyalty” between America and Israel should long ago have stretched to breaking. Such bonds. . . could actually become the chains of our destruction.

Plan for Freedom
April 22, 2010 — In a recent article, radio talk-show host, columnist for the Washington Times and president of the Edmund Burke Institute, Jeffrey Kuhner, asks the question, “Will America break up?” Kuhner is not the only intelligent and reasonable person asking this question and predicting its reality. Igor Panarin, a professor at the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian foreign affairs ministry, predicts that given the way the federal government handles its finances and given the unrecoverable deficit of the US, the US is undoubtedly bound for “extinction in its present form,” not even mentioning the political, cultural, religious, moral and foreign-entanglement turmoil of the US. . .
Human nature and experience prove that as a body of people or states regard their God-given freedom and rights as stolen or trampled and as ‘peaceful’ political process effects no restoration of those freedoms and rights for generations, ‘breakup’ is not only inevitable, it is necessary. America’s founders believed the same: “[I]n the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands.”
Do not be deceived into thinking that this necessity will not occur, is impractical or is foolish. The course of events in the United States has proven one thing: the federal government is out of control and has been for generations. . . We the People of the States should not simple-mindedly and passively wait for a ‘collapse’ of the US, as if our existence consists of nothing more than being cattle, wondering if we are going to the slaughter today or tomorrow. . .

Comment: Rome will not permit a break-up as it needs the blooded US military. Once the sovereign debt crisis in Europe and elsewhere has brought the world to its knees, Rome will refinance the US dollar with gold backing; her then Devil-incarnate pope will control the world. But when Rome and the USA have served their utility, they will be ‘nuked’ from the surface of the earth by the ‘hidden hand’ behind Judaeo-Communist Russia.
Behind Arizona Immigration Law: GOP Game to Swipe November Election
April 26, 2010 — Don’t be fooled. The way the media plays the story, it was a wave of racist, anti-immigrant hysteria that moved Arizona Republicans to pass a sick little law, signed last week, requiring every person in the state to carry papers proving they are US citizens. I don’t buy it. Anti-Hispanic hysteria has always been as much a part of Arizona as the saguaro cactus and excessive air-conditioning.
What’s new here is not the politicians’ fear of a xenophobic “Teabag” uprising. What moved GOP Governor Jan Brewer to sign the Soviet-style show-me-your-papers law is the exploding number of legal Hispanics, US citizens all, who are daring to vote—and daring to vote Democratic by more than two-to-one. Unless this demographic locomotive is halted, Arizona Republicans know their party will soon be electoral toast. Or, if you like, tortillas. Full story: truthout.org
Genetically Modified Soy linked to Sterility, Infant Mortality
April 26, 2010 — “This study was just routine,” said Russian biologist Alexey V. Surov, in what could end up as the understatement of this century. Surov and his colleagues set out to discover if Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) soy, grown on 91% of US soybean fields, leads to problems in growth or reproduction. What he discovered may uproot a multi-billion dollar industry.
After feeding hamsters for two years over three generations, those on the GM diet, and especially the group on the maximum GM soy diet, showed devastating results. By the third generation, most GM soy-fed hamsters lost the ability to have babies. They also suffered slower growth, and a high mortality rate among the pups.
And if this isn’t shocking enough, some in the third generation even had hair growing inside their mouths—a phenomenon rarely seen, but apparently more prevalent among hamsters eating GM soy. . . Full story: newswithviews.com
Comment: Eugenics, dysgenics, and depopulation. The US Supreme Court will hear arguments Tuesday in its first-ever case involving genetically modified crops.

I Will Restore Saith the Lord
— “In vain do they worship Me” —
Jesus Christ infuriated many of His Jewish listeners by informing them that Talmudic Judaism, the religion they so devoutly followed, was unacceptable to God. The reason for this startling denunciation was simply, “they taught for doctrines the commandments of men” (Mark 7:7). Over the years, they had introduced many traditions, interpretations and even laws which were not given by God and not a part of Holy Scripture. The average Israelite, reared under this mixture of Divine Law and human commandment, trusted the ministry and accepted it without question when it is in fact the antithesis of God’s unchanging Word. The main promulgators of this tepid stew were the zealous denominations known as the Scribes and Pharisees. The Scribes were the Pharisee teachers of the Law of Moses, carefully distorted to comprise the Talmud: “There is greater stringency in respect to the teachings of the Scribes than in respect to the Torah—so that a Biblical law may be transgressed” (Sanhedrin 88b). Though unnoticed by the general public who were content with a second-hand religion, their heresy was foremost in the eyes of Jesus Who indicted them for altering God’s immutable Word and thereby closing heaven, not only to themselves, but to all those who listened to and trusted in them (Matthew 23:13).
The Gentile church world William Branham stepped into, had drifted into the same unholy mixture. They had the Word of God from which preachers drew their sermon texts. But overall the people had adopted an extremely lax attitude with respect to the authority and precision of Scripture. They ignored the admonition of “those noble Bereans” (Acts 17:11), taking it upon themselves to define major and minor doctrines, choosing which parts of God’s Word are relevant and which no longer applied, placing complete trust in the interpretations of their particular denomination which became the ultimate arbiter on Scriptural issues. Consequently, permeating every church and interwoven with every church creed, was a collection of sayings, traditions and misinterpretations built upon the original apostatizing in the fourth century AD. No denomination was innocent in this regard and no denomination is capable of repenting because it is governed by organization and program, not led of the Spirit. Thus individual, repentance would ultimately mean leaving the systems of man behind, in the same way as the followers of Jesus had to bid farewell to their beloved Judaism.
Revelation 17 and 18 teach us that by the time of the Lord’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming, the true enemy of the Gospel is a powerful world church called the Great Harlot, Mystery Babylon, and the Mother of Harlots. She and her adulterous daughters are seen to have formed into a vast system, able to control politics, religion and commerce. This is the destiny of every man-made denomination which, like the first or mother church, vaunt their word above the Word of God. Such will be the momentary splendor of Rome and her (once) Protestant denominational daughters from which God will separate a true Word Bride so She can unite with her Word Groom.
I have selected three of the doctrines William Branham taught which serve to illustrate why it was essential for God to anoint this restoration ministry.
— “Unto what were you baptized?” (Acts 19:3) —
It is evident that sprinkling and infant baptism have no Scriptural foundation, but there is another even more prevalent error that has gone largely unchecked for centuries. The great majority of Christian churches, baptize using the Titles, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, believing they are obeying the commandment of Jesus in Matthew 28:19. They overlook the majestic truth expressed by the prophet Isaiah when he foretold that a Son would be born Who would have ONE (1) glorious Name that would embody all of the Titles and manifestations of God. “For unto us a Son is born, unto us a child is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His Name shall be CALLED (not is), Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” The disciples to whom this commission was given had the revelation that the NAME (singular) of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost was none other than LORD JESUS CHRIST. Consequently, every recorded baptism was done in that Name (Acts 2:38; 8:16; 10:48; 19:5).
Even secular history has no record of water baptism in three Titles until the time of the First Nicea Council. And according to page 59 of the New Catholic Encyclopaedia it was not until about 1100 that the false baptism in three Titles was adopted by the majority of the churches (at the point of a sword). (For more on water baptism see One God or Trinity).
In one of the many places William Branham expressed this truth, he said as follows:
“I admit that it takes a real revelation from the Holy Ghost to see the truth about the Godhead these days when we are in the midst of the perverting of so much Scripture. But the prevailing, overcoming church is built on revelation so we can expect God to reveal His truth to us. However, you actually don’t need a revelation on water baptism. It is right there staring you in the face. Would it be possible for one minute for the apostles to be led astray from a direct command of the Lord to baptize in the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost and then find them in willful disobedience? They knew what the Name was, and there is not one place in Scripture where they baptized any other way than in the Name of Lord Jesus Christ. Common sense would tell you that the Book of Acts is the church in action, and if they baptized that way, then that is the way to baptize. Now if you think that is strong, what do you think of this? Anyone who was not baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus had to be baptized over again.
Acts 19:1-6, “And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples He said unto them, “Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed?” And they said unto him, “We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. And He said unto them, “Unto what then were ye baptized?” And they said, “Unto John’s baptism.” Then said Paul, “John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on Him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. When they heard this, they were baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them and they spake with tongues and prophesied.” There it is. These good people at Ephesus had heard about the coming Messiah. John had preached Him. They were baptized unto repentance of sins, looking forward to believing on Jesus. But now it was time to look back to Jesus and be baptized unto remission of sins. It was time to receive the Holy Ghost. And when they were baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Paul laid his hands on them and the Holy Ghost came upon them.
Oh, those dear folks at Ephesus were fine people; and if any one had a right to feel secure, they did. Notice how far they had come. They had come all the way up to accepting the coming Messiah. They were ready for Him. But don’t you see that in spite of that they had missed Him? He had come and gone. They needed to be baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. They needed to be filled with the Holy Ghost.
If you have been baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, God will fill you with His Spirit. That is the Word. Acts 19:6 which we read was the fulfilling of Acts 2:38, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost.” See, Paul, by the Holy Ghost, said exactly what Peter said by the Holy Ghost. And what was said cannot be changed. It has to be the same from Pentecost until the very last elected one has been baptized. Galatians 1:8, “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 26-27).
— “. . . The LORD our God is One Lord” (Mark 12:29) —
Directly associated with the understanding on water baptism is the truth about the Godhead. The churches “traditionally” believe in three separate or distinct persons in one God. This was the result of a misinterpretation of Scripture which mentions the deity of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost incorporated in a Trinitarian definition at the Hegelian dialectic of the fourth century meeting of the First Nicea Council.
Like the false so-called “baptismal formula,” this “new” concept (with the help of armed might), swept Christendom, and over the centuries has become so embedded in Christian thought that to question its validity is tantamount to heresy.
The church lost the revelation that the one God, Jehovah, expressed Himself in the Old Testament as the Father, manifested Himself in the Gospels in the Son, Jesus, and revealed Himself in the Book of Acts as the Holy Spirit. In reality, it is three dispensations of the same God—God above us—God with us—God in us, NOT three persons, but one glorious Person finally and wonderfully unveiled (Hebrews 1:3).
The heathen intellectual minds of the theologians could not reconcile the appearance of the Son on earth to the Father remaining in heaven. Forgetting that God can be in heaven whilst at the same time manifesting Himself on earth (John 14:10), they decided there had to be at least two in the Godhead and the entrance of the Holy Spirit in Acts 2 made it three. They made the Son the second person of this Godhead, failing to realize that the Scriptures do not teach that Jesus is in the Godhead, rather that the Godhead is in Jesus. “For in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily” (Colossians 2:9). They could only see that the Father was a God and the Son was a God and missed the true concept that the Father was God and the Son was the flesh or Man in Whom that God dwelt to redeem Adam’s fallen race and the beginning of God creating or unfolding Himself in the form of His Family—the New Testament saints in whom He will dwell and be worshipped through eternity (Luke 1:35; I Timothy 3:16; Revelation 3:14).
The ensuing three-personned deity is every bit as much a form of idolatry as were the various pagan gods the children of Israel would consistently begin to worship.
Through the ages, Bible Truth became increasingly obscured by ignorance and superstition forced upon what was once the Empire of Imperial Rome by a new mistress, the Roman Catholic church. Such was her power, kings submitted to her outrageous demands, and laity were forbidden to read the Bible on pain of excommunication or death. By her own records, and history she martyred over 68 million Christians during almost a thousand years of “Dark Ages” which ensued, many by unspeakable torture.
Because the faith was thus lost, God “winked” at the ignorance of the saints during the Church Ages, provided they walked in the Light of the present Truth as it was restored. The ministry of the last angel was to fully restore the true understanding or faith (including the Godhead and water baptism) to the elect. (For more on the Godhead, see The Uniqueness of The Son of God).
I have selected some comments made by Brother Branham in his series on the Seven Church Ages:
“Now all these expressions, ‘Him Which Is,’ and ‘Him Which Was,’ and ‘Is to Come,’ and ‘Faithful Witness,’ and ‘Firstborn from among the Dead,’ and ‘Prince of the Kings of the Earth,’ and ‘The Alpha and Omega,’ and ‘The Almighty,’ are titles and descriptions of one and the same person, Who is the Lord Jesus Christ, Who washed us from our sins in His own blood.
The Spirit of God in John expressed thusly in order to set forth the supreme deity of Jesus Christ and to reveal the Godhead as ONE God. Today there is a gross error. It is that there are three gods instead of one. Thus, revelation as given to John by Jesus, Himself corrects that error. It is not that there are three Gods, but one God with three major offices or dispensation claims with the Titles, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. This mighty revelation is what the early church had, and it must he restored in this last day along with the correct formula of water baptism.
Now modern theologians won’t agree with me for here is what was written in a great Christian magazine. “That teaching (on the Trinity) is at the very heart and core of the Old Testament. The New Testament is just as much opposed as the Old Testament is to the thought that there are more gods than one. Yet the New Testament with equal clearness teaches that the Father is God, and the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God, and that these three are NOT three aspects of the same Person, but three persons standing in a truly personal relationship to one another.” There we have the great doctrine of the Three Persons but one God.”
They also state, “God, according to the Bible, is just one person, but He is three persons in one God. That is the great mystery of the Trinity”.
It sure is. How can three persons be in one God? Not only is there no Bible for it, but it shows even a lack of intelligent reasoning. Three distinct persons, though identical substances, make three gods, or language has lost its meaning entirely.
Just listen to these words again, “I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, saith the Lord, Which Is, and Which Was, and Which Is to Come, the Almighty.” This is deity. This is not simply a prophet, a man. This is God. And it is not a revelation of three Gods, but one God, the Almighty. There can only be one All-mighty.
They didn’t believe in three Gods in the beginning of the church. You can’t find that sort of belief amongst the apostles. It was after the apostolic age that this theory came in and really became an issue and cardinal doctrine at the Nicene Council. The doctrine of the Godhead caused a two-way split at Nicea. And from that split there came two extremes. One actually went into polytheism, believing in three Gods, and the others went into Unitarianism. Of course, that was a little while in coming about, but it did, and we have it right today. But the revelation through John by the spirit to the churches was, “I am the Lord Jesus Christ, and I am ALL of It. There isn’t any other God.” And He put His seal on the Revelation.
Consider this: Who was the Father of Jesus? Matthew 1:18 says, “She was found with child of the Holy Ghost.” But Jesus Himself, claimed that God was His Father. God the Father and God the Holy Ghost, as we often express these terms, make the Father and the Spirit ONE. Indeed they are, or else Jesus had two Fathers. But notice that Jesus said that He and His Father were one—not two. That makes ONE God.
Since this is historically and Scripturally true, people wonder where the three came from. It became a foundational doctrine at the Nicene Council in AD325. This trinity (an absolutely unscriptural word) was based upon the many gods of Rome. The Romans had many gods to whom they prayed. They also prayed to ancestors as mediators. It was just a step to give new names to old gods, so we have saints to make it more Biblical. Thus, instead of Jupiter, Venus, Mars, etc., we have Paul, Peter, Fatima, Christopher etc., etc. They could not make their pagan religion work out with just one god, so they split Him up into three, and they made intercessors of the saints as they had made intercessors of their ancestors.
Ever since then, people have failed to realize that there is one God according to Scripture, but they try to make it the fantastic theory that God is like a bunch of grapes: three persons with the same Divinity shared equally by all. But it plainly says here in Revelation that Jesus is “That Which Is, That Which Was, and That Which Is to Come,” He is the “Alpha and Omega,” which means He is the “A to Z” or THE ALL OF IT. He is everything—the Almighty. He is the Rose of Sharon, the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star, the Righteous Branch, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. He is God, Almighty God. ONE GOD.
I Timothy 3:16 says, “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached to the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up to Glory.” This is what the Bible says. It doesn’t say a thing about a first or second or third person here. It says God was manifest in flesh. One God. That One God was manifested in flesh. That ought to settle it. God came in a human form. That didn’t make Him ANOTHER GOD. HE WAS GOD, THE SAME GOD. It was a revelation then, and it is a revelation now. One God (ibid. p. 17-19).
— “I will put enmity between thy seed and her Seed” (Genesis 3:15) —
The third and perhaps the most scrutinized of all William Branham’s teachings is the truth he restored on the original sin recorded in Genesis 1 – 4.
Genesis 4:1 and 2 begins, “and Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord. And she again bare his brother Abel. . .” Herein, we see Eve’s great deception at the birth of her first son. Still believing the Serpent’s lie, she actually thought Cain was the beginning of the creation of God, the Savior of mankind. However God acknowledged no direct relationship with Cain and he is from birth an outcast.
His name was to become synonymous with treachery and murder. The next mention of Cain is on this Wise: “But unto Cain and to his offering He had not respect” (Genesis 4:5). Not only was Cain’s offering refused, but Cain was himself forbidden an approach that his brother Abel enjoyed. Why was Cain rejected? Also in relation to this—what was the fruit Adam and Eve partook? What role did the serpent play in the fall? What was the serpent seed of Genesis 3:15?
The answer to this mysterious riddle has remained hidden for centuries. Under this prophet’s ministry, God has provided the solution:
“Now in the Garden of Eden there were two trees standing in the midst of it. One was the Tree of Life, the other was the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Man was to live by the Tree of Life; but he was not to touch the other tree or he would die. But man did partake of the other tree, and when he did, death entered into him by his sin, and he became separated from God.
Some have an idea that the two trees in the garden were just two more trees like unto the rest of those that God had placed there. But careful students know that this is not so. When John the Baptist cried that the ax was laid to the root of all trees, he was not talking of simply natural trees, but of spiritual principles. Now in I John 5:11 it says, “And this is the RECORD, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His son.” Jesus said in John 5:40, “And ye will not come to Me, that ye might have life.” Thus the record, God’s Word, states plainly and clearly that LIFE, ETERNAL LIFE, is in the Son. It is no other place. I John 5:12, “He that hath the Son hath LIFE: and he that hath not the Son of God hath NOT Life.” Now since the record cannot change, be taken from or added thereunto, then the record stands that THE LIFE IS IN THE SON . . . Since this is so. THE TREE IN THE GARDEN HAS TO BE JESUS.
Alright. If the Tree of Life is a person, then the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil is a person ALSO. It can’t be otherwise. Thus the Righteous One and the Wicked One stood side by side there in the midst of the Garden of Eden. Ezekiel 28:13a “Thou (Satan) hast been in Eden, the garden of God”.
Here is where we receive the true revelation of the “serpent’s seed.” Here is what really happened in the Garden of Eden. The Word says that Eve was beguiled by the serpent. She was actually seduced by the serpent. It says in Genesis 3:1, “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made.” This beast was so close to a human being (and yet was pure animal) that he could reason and talk. He was an upright creature and was somewhere in between a chimpanzee and a man, but closer to a man. He was so close to being a human that his seed could, and did mingle with that of the woman and cause her to conceive. When this happened, God cursed the serpent. He changed every bone in the serpent’s body so that he had to crawl like a snake. Science can try all it wants to, and it won’t find the missing link. God saw to that. Man is smart and he can see an association of man with animal and he tries to prove it out of evolution. There isn’t any evolution. But man and animal did mingle. That’s one of the mysteries of God that has remained hidden, but here it is revealed. It happened right back there in the midst of Eden when Eve turned away from Life to accept Death.
Notice what God said to them in the garden. Genesis 3:15, “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed, and it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” If we give credit to the Word that the woman did have a seed then the serpent must have surely had a seed also. If the seed of the woman was a man-child apart from the man, then the seed of the serpent will have to be in the same pattern, and that is, another male must he born apart from human male instrumentality. There is no student who does not know the seed of the woman was the Christ Who came by the instrumentality of God, apart from human intercourse. It is also just as well known that the predicted bruising of the serpent’s head was in actuality a prophecy concerning what Christ would accomplish against Satan at the cross. There at the cross, Christ would bruise the head of Satan while Satan would bruise the heel of the Lord.
This portion of Scripture is the revelation of how the literal seed of the serpent was sown in the earth, even as we have the account of Luke 1:26-35, wherein is set forth the exact account of how the seed of the woman came unto physical manifestation apart from the instrumentality of the human male. “And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, ‘Hail thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women.’ And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, ‘Fear not, Mary; for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb and bring forth a Son, and shalt call His Name Jesus. He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God shall give unto Him the Throne of His father David: And He shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever: and of His kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, ‘How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?’ And the angel answered and said unto her, ‘The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee; therefore also That Holy Thing Which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God’.”
As the seed of the woman was literally God reproducing Himself in human flesh, so the seed of the serpent is the literal way that Satan found he was able to open the door to himself into the human race. It was impossible for Satan (for he is only a CREATED spirit-being) to reproduce himself in the manner which God reproduced Himself, so the Genesis account tells how he produced his seed and introduced or injected himself into the human race. Also recall that Satan is called the “serpent.” It is his seed or injection into the human race we are speaking of.
Before Adam ever had carnal knowledge of Eve, the serpent had that knowledge ahead of him. And that one born of it was Cain. Cain was of (born of, begotten of) “that Wicked One” (I John 3:12). The Holy Spirit in John could not in one place call Adam the “Wicked One” (for that is what he would be if he fathered Cain) and in another place call Adam the “Son of God” which he was by creation (Luke 3:38). Cain turned out in character like his father, a bringer of death, a murderer. His utter defiance of God when faced by the Almighty in Genesis 4:5, 13-14, show him to be absolutely unhuman-like in characteristics, seeming even to surpass any account we have in Scripture concerning a confrontation of Satan with God. “But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. And the Lord said unto Cain, ‘Where is Abel thy brother?’ And he said, ‘I know not; Am I my brother’s keeper?’ And Cain said unto the Lord, ‘My punishment is greater than I can bear. Behold, Thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth: and from Thy face shall I be hid: and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me’.”
Notice the exact way the record of God sets forth the account of the births of Cain, Abel and Seth. Genesis 4:1, “And Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, ‘I have gotten a man from the Lord.’ And she again bare his brother Abel.” Genesis 4:25, “And Adam knew his wife again and she bare a son, and called his name Seth…” There are THREE sons born from TWO acts of carnal knowledge by Adam. Since the Bible is the exact and perfect Word of God, this is no mistake but a record for our illumination. Since THREE sons were born from TWO acts by Adam, you know POSITIVELY that ONE of those WAS NOT the son of Adam. God has recorded this in this exact manner to show us something. The truth of the matter is that Eve had in her womb TWO sons (twins from SEPARATE impregnations). She was carrying twins, with Cain’s conception sometime previous to that of Abel’s. TWINS again. Perfect type as always. To those who think that this is not possible, let it be known that the medical records are replete with cases where women have carried twins who were of separate ova and separate insemination with the fertilization of the eggs being days apart, and NOT ONLY SO, but some of the records show that the twins were fathered by separate males. Recently worldwide coverage was given to a Norwegian mother who was suing her husband for support for herself and her twins, one of which was white and the other black. She admitted that she had a Negro lover. The two conceptions were about three weeks apart. In Beaumont, Texas, in 1963, the records again set forth a multiple birth wherein pregnancies were many days apart, in fact so much so the woman almost died along with one child in childbirth (ibid. p. 97-100).
— “If any man hear My voice . . . Behold I stand at the door and knock” (Revelation 3:20) —
Two matters had to be dealt with by the Holy Spirit in order to prepare a Church for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. First, it was imperative to restore the elect to the apostolic faith and correct the doctrinal mishmash created by hundreds of denominations. And there were many revelations of Scripture pertaining to the end-time Bride that had never been clearly taught. The parable of the wheat and tares of Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43; the anti-Christ of II Thessalonians 2:4: the mystery concerning the rapture; the mysteries of the Book of Revelation, and others. This is precisely why a prophetic forerunner, with a vindicated “Thus saith the Lord,” was essential. You will notice ONLY the forerunner of Christ’s first Coming, John the Baptist, was able to identify the Scriptures such as Isaiah 40:1-3 that were being fulfilled and only he was able to identify the Lamb. So was it in the ministry of this end-time Elijah concerning the multitudes of Scriptures coming to pass in his day!
The second matter concerned the conduct of the people. You will notice that besides rebuking the traditions of the clergy, John also trumpeted a call to repentance and holy living. Today, we find churches have relaxed their standard of holiness to such an extent that the conduct of their people conforms almost completely with that of the world.
In today’s evangelical World, the focus has shifted from holiness to finances. The various projects of many internationally famous preachers are costing billions to build and to maintain. One can hardly attend a meeting or turn on a religious broadcast without being accosted repeatedly for huge sums of money to pay for religious resorts, hospitals, broadcasts, colleges, and universities. Adherents are compelled to support real estate empires and worldwide organizational systems.
In addition to this, mixed swimming, scantily clad women, social drinking, smoking, necking and petting among the young people, etc., has become acceptable in the churches.
Jesus identified these days with the days of Lot and Noah. In them, the prevalent sin was sexual promiscuity and finally, total perversion. The word ‘unisex’ has been widely used to describe the attitudes, styles and appearances of today’s men and women. Over the last 20 years, the trend has evolved until now they are literally exchanging roles. Women are cutting their hair, wearing men’s garments, demanding equal rights and have forsaken motherhood and home-keeping to pursue their own careers, while men have become morally weak and perverse, growing their hair like women, wearing blouse-like shirts, tight suggestive pants, high heels, and even necklaces and earrings.
The churches, instead of resisting this perverse decline, have succumbed and adopted most of its standards of conduct, dress, music, and entertainment. Consequently God has given them the portion of the unbeliever. Ichabod has been scratched across their ornate portals and God has abandoned them to the harlot system and the irrevocable mark of the Beast (Revelation 13:15-18).
God, however, cannot forsake His predestinated and in spite of this dismal, end-time scenario, He promises “a glorious church not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing” (Ephesians 5:27). Once again, God has prepared an ark for a lovely but tiny end-time Bride. Her final call is twofold. One, “Come out of her (Rome and her daughters) My people” (Revelation 18:4); two, come into Christ (Ephesians 1:10), the Living Word of God. She alone will recognize Christ’s forerunner and begin to busily prepare for the great translation; the rest will be swept away by modern so-called revivals into the council of churches and perdition. This truly is the last call—there will not be another. The Jews are in their homeland, the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6 has come and gone, his Message is in the hands and hearts of God’s people, and the stage is now set for the rapture!
Multitudes of tapes and books of William Branham’s sermons have been distributed all over the world. In country after country, God has raised up churches, and thousands, through the still-speaking voice of His prophet (Revelation 10:7), have been delivered from sin, the world and denominationalism to walk according to the Scriptures. If you have been baptized by some organization under the Titles Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, you need to be rebaptized (Acts 19:1-5) in the Name of Jesus Christ. Every Christian must realize that he cannot follow God without following His Word! The evidence of our love for God is measured directly by our love for His commandments (John 14:15) and we can only know Him as we see Him unveiled in His Word. The Laodicean Church Age (Revelation 3:14-22) presents a pitiful picture of Jesus Christ knocking on the outside of the church, not the heart as so many suppose. Notice (Revelation 3:20) the call sounds to the individual, “any man,” and not to the Word-rejecting systems. May whoever reads this, heed the Voice of the Bridegroom and join Him on the outside of everything that has to do with man and enter into His perfect Word!
Jesus promised in Matthew 24:45 that His faithful minority at the end of the world who love to do the will of God would be given “meat (spiritual food) in due season.” He promised that while He was withdrawing from an apostate world where there would be “a famine for hearing the Word,” but that they would have provision and be nourished. Just as Elijah provided meal and oil for the widow of Zarephath, so the Elijah of this final age has been commissioned to leave a “Message” which would carry the Bride through to the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.
— Appendix 1 — Angels —
The Greek word for “angels” is “messengers.” It is used in Scripture to mean mortal men and, less frequently, supernatural beings. In both Luke 7:24 and James 2:25, the word is translated “messengers” and obviously means men.
The following excerpt is from The New Scofield Bible footnote to Hebrews 1:4:
“Angel, summary: Angel, i.e. ‘messenger,’ is used of God, of men, and of an order of created, spiritual beings whose chief attributes are strength and wisdom (II Samuel 14:20; Psalms 103:20; 104:4). In the Old Testament, the expression “the angel of the Lord” (sometimes “of God”) usually implies the presence of Deity in angelic form (Genesis 16:1-13; 21:17-19; 22:11-16; 31:11-13; Exodus 3:2-4; Judges 2:1; 6:12-16; 13:3-22). See Judges 2:1, note cp. Malachi 3:1, note the word “angel” is used of men in Luke 7:24; James 2:25; Revelation 1:20; 2:1, 8, 13, 18; 3:1, 7, 14.
— Appendix 2 — Witnesses —
Oral Roberts: “A humble devout man of God” (Healing Waters, July 1948).
Gordon Lindsay: “Never had we known of any preacher calling deaf mutes and blind people to be prayed for, and then to see those people delivered on the spot—a ministry that was beyond any we had before witnessed” (The House That The Lord Built).
Jack Moore: “The most gifted of all the evangelists (All Things Are Possible, by David Edwin Harrell, Jr).
F. F. BOSWORTH: “When the gift is operating, Bro. Branham is the most sensitive person to the presence and working of the Holy Spirit and to spiritual realities of any person I have ever known (A PROPHET VISITS SOUTH AFRICA, by Julius Stadsklev).
Tommy Osborn: “God has chosen diverse and mysterious ways to reveal Himself to His servants, especially those called for dispensational purposes as was Brother Branham’s call” (William Branham’s Memorial Service).
“In short, the man we know as William Branham, was sent to demonstrate God again in the flesh” (William Branham’s Memorial Service).
“So, He (God) sent forth a particular human vessel surrounded by supernatural signs to attract attention, to make this wayward generation stop and look and ponder and search and think. Thus the halo of Light that appeared at his birth, the star, the angel, the discernment, the gifts, all of these for that purpose. What for? To show us God again. To repeat what He showed us in Jesus Christ when He came in the form of flesh. To remind us one final time. Like Jesus, Brother Branham redemonstrated the very things which made men believe that the true Messiah had come” (William Branham’s Memorial Service).
George Ekeroth: “God called this humble man . . . and anointed his ministry to a degree that within a few short years his name was known in the most remote jungle out-station. Wherever you would go in this world you would find that the name of this messenger had preceded you” (Wind Over the 20th Century, by Morris Cerullo).
David Edwin Harrell, Jr: “Most of the participants of the Healing Revival (that erupted in 1947) looked upon Branham as its initiator . . . William Branham became a prophet to a generation . . . Night after night before thousands of awed believers, he discerned the diseases of the sick and pronounced them healed” (All Things Are Possible).
“The power of a Branham service . . . remains a legend unparalleled in the history of the charismatic movement” (All Things Are Possible).
James Morris: “It was Branham, more than any other evangelist, who started the post-World War II fundamental faith healing revival following his encounter with an angel on May 7, 1946” (The Preachers).
“Word radiated in every direction that all manner of diseases and afflictions were healed instantly by the little Indiana preacher. Even cases of raising the dead were published” (The Preachers).
Thomas R. Nickel: “In Bible days, there were men of God who were prophets and seers. But in all the sacred records, none of these had a greater ministry than that of William Branham, a Prophet and Seer of God, whose photograph appears on the front cover of this issue of “Full Gospel Businessman’s Voice. Branham has been used by God, in the Name of Jesus, to raise the dead” (Full Gospel Men’s Voice, February 1961).
Joseph Mattson Boze: “Sometimes I was scared because of the deep sense of holiness that penetrated the meetings, but I never failed to see the gift of God in operation through His servant and to feel the warmth of love that flowed through his ministry” (The Herald of Faith, February 1966).
— The Message —
The “Message” sent by God through His prophet can change your life and make the Word of God come alive to you. Paul spoke of the Bereans in this manner: “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the Word with all readiness of mind, and searched the Scriptures daily whether those things Were so” (Acts 17:11).
Take this Message, consider it, check it out with the Scriptures and let the Lord reveal Himself to you.

Polish MP: ‘Russia engineered Air Crash that killed President Kaczynski’
April 13, 2010 — Captain Arkadiusz Protasiuk was flying the Polish presidential plane that crashed near Smolensk airport. The Russian government prevented the Polish president’s plane from landing four times to divert him from a ceremony to mark the 70th anniversary of the Katyn massacre. . . Artur Gorski said the Russians “came up with some dubious reasons” why the aircraft couldn’t land, because they feared President Leck Kaczynski’s presence would overshadow a similar event hosted by the Russian prime minister a few days before. . .

April 20, 2010 — “The author who filmed the video of shots fired at the Polish plane crash seen by everyone by now has been stabbed near Kijow on April 15 and transported in critical condition to the hospital in Kijow. On April 16, three unidentified individuals unplugged him from his life support system and stabbed him 3 more times. Andrij was pronounced dead that afternoon.

Who uses Phony Social Security Numbers?
What do you do if the guy living in the White House uses Social Security number 042-68-XXXX that was actually issued in the State of Connecticut between 1977 and 1979 to an individual who was born in 1890? Interestingly, the SSN does not appear in the Social Security death index and now has two dates of birth tied to it: Aug. 4, 1961 and the year 1890. As a US Senator, this man used an entirely different Social Security number—282-90-XXXX.
Using several Social Security Numbers that have never been issued to anyone. . . among the 39 Social Security cards. . . discovered linked to the Obama family SSNs for Obama, his wife and his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, none of them were issued in Hawaii, which in itself, according to [attorney Orly] Taitz, is evidence of Obama’s foreign birth.
Clearly, if the 28 Social Security numbers Obama uses, or has used during his lifetime, were appropriated by him for his personal use, a case can be made that he has committed multiple Class C felonies in order to conceal the fact that he does not possess a United States birth certificate. If that’s true, and the only Hawaiian birth certificate he possesses is a “Certification of Live Birth” from Hawaii (which was issued as a personal favor to him by Hawaiian Gov. Linda Lingle) rather than a Certificate of Live Birth that is accompanied by “eye witness signatures” which are affidavits of his birth in Honolulu, Hawaii on Aug. 4, 1961 rather than in Mombassa, Kenya on the same day. Then, even without the elusive long form Hawaiian birth certificate that appears not to exist, Obama could be forced to resign or be impeached and removed from office.

Obama is a “Christian,” a “Muslim” and even a “Jew.” He is an Indonesian, Kenyan and an American. He is Black and White. He is a perfect leader for a new world bereft of race, nation and religion. In fact, he represents an alien Satanic force, the Illuminati, intent on gradually enslaving mankind. Read henrymakow.com, and follow the links.
Hitler’s Freedom from International Debt Slavery
It is always difficult to have an intelligent discussion on the topic of World War II Germany, and Hitler whose hundred and eleventh birthday was last Tuesday, because from school days we have been brainwashed by fraudulent history and lying propaganda of the ‘City of London’ and Judaeo-Roman false religion raising Auschwitz over Calvary as they march lockstep to Lucifer’s global hegemony. Jesus told those Jews which believed on Him, “If you continue in My Word, then you are My disciples indeed; and you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32).
Jewish traitor, US President Woodrow Wilson (Wolfsohn) said, “. . . some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it” (Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom, Doubleday, Page & Co. 1913, p. 13-14).
In 1916, after Paul Warburg’s Federal Reserve System had been in operation three years, President Woodrow Wilson summed up the economic situation in the United States of America as follows: “A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credits. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men . . . We have come to be one of the worst ruled; one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world . . . no longer a government by conviction and the free vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men.”
When the countries of the Western World were plunged into the economic depression of the 1930’s. . . Jewish President F.D. Roosevelt said: “Sixty families in America control the wealth of the nation . . . One-third of the nation’s population is ill-housed, ill-fed, and ill-clad . . . I intend to drive the money changers from the Temple.”
Illuminus Roosevelt was a lackey of the moneychangers. Hitler was not. The money changers debauched and prostituted not only the German treasury but the people. Hitler bypassed the moneychangers and their gold standard, and within two years he had solved Germany’s unemployment. Within five years he transformed Germany from the poorest to the wealthiest nation in Europe and the highest living standard in the world. Judea declared war! Gird your loins with the strong belt of truth from this short account by mainly Jewish historians. If you who support the hypocritical ‘politically correct’ BIG LIE you are condoning the infiltration of Shoah theology into the world church system and declaring the real liar, murderer, and son of the Devil was Jesus Christ (John 8:44).

The Queen — v— John Wilson
Trial by Jury scheduled for 24 May, 2010
After 14 years of fighting in Australian Courts for the TRUTH that the word, ‘VARIABLE’, means ‘UNCERTAIN’, I (John Wilson) have finally secured a JURY TRIAL, here in this Parramatta District Court.
The INJUSTICES resulting from being DENIED my inalienable RIGHT to TRIAL BY JURY in all my appearances in Australian Courts have become manifest to include IMPRISONMENT, DISPOSSESSION of my PROPERTIES, DEFAMATION, ASSAULT by POLICE and SHERIFFS, the DESTRUCTION of my TOOLS of TRADE, the THEFT of my BELONGINS, the THEFT of my PATIENTS’ RECORDS, the CANCELLATION of my DRIVER’S LICENCE until 2027, DISTRESS and HARDSHIP to my WIFE and FAMILY. . .
I truly believe that this JURY TRIAL is the most important court case ever in the history of Australia. It is more important that the JURY TRIALS of the EUREKA STOCKADE REBELS in 1854 which is regarded as the ‘LANDMARK OF DEMOCRACY’ when 6 separate JURIES all found those men, who had drawn up their ‘CHARTER OF LIBERTIES’ to stand against the oppression and exploitation in the mining fields, had NOT DONE WRONG, ie: the 13 men were found ‘NOT GUILTY’ when the British Governor, Hotham, charged them with HIGH TREASON and wanted them all hung. . .
From this TRIAL we can begin to put a stop to the STEALING committed by the BANKS through their fraudulent practices of unlawful loan contracts (eg: variable interest rates rendering a contract void for uncertainty) and creating money ‘out of thin air’ (eg: by Fractional Reserve Banking). . .
From this TRIAL we can begin to restore ALL of OUR RIGHTS, including PROPERTY RIGHTS, FREEDOM OF SPEECH, FREE ELECTIONS, etc. From this TRIAL we can begin to return the COURTS of AUSTRALIA to the RULE OF THE PEOPLE so that PEOPLE decide what the LAW IS; so that PEOPLE govern the RULES OF EVIDENCE; so that PEOPLE nullify/defeat bad laws; so that PEOPLE govern THEMSELVES and their COUNTRY. . .

Prefabricated Fascists: the FBI’s Assembly-Line Provocateurs
You really have to wonder what’s going on when a bunch of White guys from Detroit decide to hold a protest on the lawn of the LA City Hall carrying Nazi banners. The LA Times article mentions “a bare-chested middle-aged man with Nazi insignias tattooed on his chest and back.” The counter-protesters beat the hell out of him. . . “the FBI has no problem staging white supremacist rallies and protest marches that help ‘local’ police departments rack up overtime.” If these guys are FBI agents, I assume they are getting combat pay—addition to travel costs from Detroit. It strikes me as incredible that 50 working class White guys have enough excess money to fly out to LA for the weekend to complain about immigration. But if the FBI is funding it, it makes a lot of sense and is exactly what the country needs: At last, a federal jobs program for working class White males Full story: theoccidentalobserver.net lewrockwell.com
Comment: Jewish President F.D. Roosevelt made the point that, “If something happens in politics you can bet it was planned that way.” Read Protocol 11:3. In 1871 it was decided that “World War Three is to be fomented by using the differences the agentur of the Illuminati stir up between Political Zionists and the leaders of the Moslem world. The war is to be directed in such a manner that Islam (the Arab World including Mohammedanism) and Political Zionism (including the State of Israel) will destroy themselves while at the same time the remaining nations, once more divided against each other on this issue, will be forced to fight themselves into a state of complete exhaustion physically, mentally, spiritually and economically. Can any unbiased and reasoning person deny that the intrigue now going on in the Near, Middle, and Far East is designed to accomplish this devilish purpose?”
Do you see Albert Pike’s plan unfolding Jesus’ prophecy (Matthew 24:37; Genesis 6:1-7, 11-13)? Can you see that in their unprovoked aggression against Iran, which has no nuclear weapons and has not staged a war of aggression in over a millennia, the leaders of your Hegelian sham democracy are serving the ‘City of London’? Just this week Israel’s belligerent President stated menacingly, “A threat to the peace of the Jewish people always carries the danger of turning into a threat to the civilized world as a whole.” Do you realize Iran is one of five nations not yet under a Rothschild-controlled central bank? And that the “evil eye” on the Great Seal of the United States is focused on North Korea, Sudan, Cuba, and Libya (Revelation 13:13-18)?
After World War Three is ended, those who aspire to undisputed world domination will provoke the greatest social cataclysm the world has ever known. Quoting Pike’s letter to Mazzini catalogued in the British Museum Library:
“We shall unleash the Nihilists and Atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will be from that moment without compass (direction), anxious for an ideal, but with out knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view, a manifestation which will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time” (William Guy Carr, Pawns in the Game, p. xv-xvi).
Is this happening (at taxpayer expense), even in “the land of the free”? Find me the man, and I’ll find the crime said Josef Stalin’s Jewish secret police chief Lavrenti Beria, responsible for the infamous Katyn massacre of captive Polish soldiers and intellectuals blamed on Nazi Germany. Patrick Buchanan’s Unnecessary War and Kevin MacDonald’s Culture of Critique identify Churchill and his paymasters the instigators of the worst fratricide committed in mankind’s entire history.
A Prophet to the Gentiles
God has to judge the world someday and the Catholics say He will judge it by the Catholic church, but which one, there are so many of them? They have two opposing trinities, and in addition to the pope in Rome there is one in Egypt, one in Greece, one in Armenia, one in Syria, another in Russia, and perhaps more. But if God is going to judge the world by the Protestant church, He has hundreds if not thousands from which to choose—each preaching a different gospel. If the Methodist is right, the Baptist is lost. If the Protestants are right then the Catholics are lost. God said He will judge the world by Jesus Christ who is the Word and physical manifestation of His eternal thoughts (John 1:1; Colossians 2:9).
All denominations have departed from God’s Word, adding to it here and diminishing from it there in order to establish their own creed. Not one of them can receive the full Gospel and they will not receive the present Truth —what Jesus is doing now, and having organized under human headship are unable follow the Leading of the Spirit (John 3:8). God deals with individuals—one at a time, not organizations. He has never spoken through two prophets in the same time and place.
As the Word of God comes only to a prophet, we must receive His vindicated prophets for God will judge the world by the iron rod of their unchanging Word. God’s first prophet was His first son, Adam, who named all of the animals by inspiration before the fall. Sin entered the world when the first woman disregarded God’s Word and her prophet husband’s headship to listen to the Serpent incarnate by Satan, to whom Adam surrendered his dominion when he took Eve back to himself, and brought death on the whole creation (Romans 5:17-18).
II Peter 1:20-21, “No prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation because no prophecy ever came by the will of man: but men moved by the Holy Ghost spoke from God.” His voice is one man under pre-eminence. He had a Noah once; He had a Moses, a Jeremiah, an Elijah, an Elisha, and a John the Baptist at the end of the dispensation of the Law. Only John the Baptist, the forerunner of Christ’s first Coming, was inspired to identify Scriptures such as Isaiah 40:1-3 that were being fulfilled. Only John was ordained to identify the Lamb. So in this day at the end of dispensation of grace, with multitudes of Scriptures coming to pass, God needed one man under pre-eminence through whom He could speak the Word to introduce His second or ‘parousia’ Coming, indict the world church system and condemn the world.
In the days of John the Baptist the priesthood and Temple service were corrupt and the faith of Moses and the prophets lacerated into denominations of Pharisees, Sadducees, Herodians, Essenes and Zealots whose conflicting doctrines “made the Word of God on no effect to them” (Matthew 15:9). And today at “the ‘parousia’ Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ to gather the Bride of all ages to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the sky,” we witness “the prior apostasy” foretold by Paul whereby the church in Laodicea is materially “rich and in need of nothing, but spiritually wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked of the Blood”.
“Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18). For this reason God promised to send a vindicated prophet with THUS SAITH THE LORD to restore the apostolic faith (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11), “finish the mystery of God” (Revelation 10:7), and call the wise and foolish virgin out from Rome and her (once) Protestant harlot daughters to maturity “in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God” and the great translation (Matthew 25:6; Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:46-57). Over the centuries “the faith once delivered to the saints,” such as the true oneness of the Godhead, Scriptural water baptism, the mystery of the baptism of the Holy Ghost without sensation but the Person of Christ performing in you the same works He did, and the original sin, had been lost through Jewish and Judaeo-Catholic martyrdom, while other mysteries essential to the end-time Bride, like the revelation of the Seven Church Ages, Seven Seals, Seven Thunders, Seven Vials and the rapture, that had never been revealed.
His disciples asked Jesus, “What will be the sign of Your ‘parousia’ Coming and what will be the sign of the end of the world order.” Matthew recorded Jesus’ response from the perspective of the 144,000 elect Israelites in a lengthy dissertation on events that must take place from the end of God’s dealings with Israel as a nation, to Daniel’s Seventieth Week, the consummation of Life, the Millennium, White Throne Judgment, and the disposition of sin prior to the renewed heavens and earth (Matthew 24 – 25).
There is little dispute among Bible students, that the fig tree represented Israel and that Jesus was indicating the restoration of the modern state would be the key sign to awaken the elect to the imminence of His second or ‘parousia’ Coming and the end of the world order (Matthew 24:32-34). This along with independence granted to the former colonies has seen its fulfillment only since the end of the Second World War (Luke 21:29-33).
The signs of the end of the Ages and the Coming of Christ for His Bride also include a repetition of the natural, spiritual and moral characteristics of the days of Noah and Lot; city building, an exponential increase in knowledge, violence, promiscuity, homosexuality, lawlessness, the rise of anti-Christ in religious union, and a global economy preparatory for Lucifer’s one world government, international travel, wars and earthquakes. Soon cometh the earthquake.
— The Sign of the Prophet —
Our purpose is to alert the reader to one more vitally significant sign which, likewise, has found its fulfillment in our day. This is God’s promised warning before any major, Scriptural happening, and is at once His most vivid yet most overlooked and misunderstood sign.
Amos 3:7, “Truly the Lord God will not do anything without first revealing His secret to His servants the prophets.” God’s pattern of dealing with His people has always included sending prophets. Amos states emphatically, “God does nothing without a prophetic forerunner” as disclosed by the most rudimentary study of Scriptural history.
Tragically, history also reveals that seldom was a prophet greeted with anything but skepticism and abuse. No matter how great their Divine vindication, they suffered at the hands of those to whom they were sent. Jesus told the Pharisees in Matthew 23:31-36, “Your forefathers were guilty of the blood of all the prophets from Abel to Zechariah,” identifying them with the lineage of Cain (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, XIII, 9:1).
In maintaining the consistency of His Word, God promised the world a prophetic messenger to announce His Second Coming. Only one ministry over the past century could qualify as that vindicated Prophet of God. William Branham was recognized by his contemporaries as a major prophet, then rejected by this wicked and adulterous Laodicean generation, whose churches put Christ without the camp, “crucifying to themselves the Son of God afresh” (Hebrews 6:6).
— What say the Scriptures —
Before discussing the life and ministry of William Branham, we will list some of the Scriptures which establish that a prophet was to forerun the Second Coming of Christ. It is commonly considered that since the first advent of Jesus Christ, God no longer uses prophets to minister to His people. A carnal interpretation of Scriptures such as Luke 16:16, “The Law and the prophets were until John,” and Hebrews 1:1, “God, who at various times and in different ways spoke in time past to the fathers in the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us in His Son. . .” is taken as proof of this. Let it be clearly understood, these Scriptures do not point to a cessation of prophets (I Corinthians 12:28; Ephesians 4:11). They state only that the partial Word each Old Testament prophet uttered was fully expressed in Christ, the Logos (Word), when He appeared in flesh. The New Testament abounds with prophets after Christ, even aside from the prophetic ministries obviously manifest in the Apostles such as Peter, Paul and John.
Let the reader consider Ephesians 3:1-5:
“For this cause I, Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ, for you Gentiles—If you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me toward you: how that by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I have briefly written already, by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ), which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men [or prophets – Ezekiel 2:1], as it is now revealed to His holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit”.
Here Paul shows that New Testament prophets not only exist but are ordained to carry mysteries the Old Testament prophets (sons of men) under the Law could only see as a shadow. “In these last days God has spoken to us by His Son,” defines the first advent. The Son is still speaking through His ordained messengers.
The Scriptures are equally clear that a prophetic ministry would be focal at the end of the world to restore the Gentiles to the apostolic faith or true Message of the Son, (the Logos or Word), and after the translation of Christ’s Bride of all Ages, to carry the Message of Messiah to Israel during the great tribulation (Revelation 11). The following Scriptures point to this Gentile forerunner:
Amos 3:7, “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, without first revealing His secret to His servants the prophets”.
Remember—before any significant, Scriptural event, God always speaks to a prophet to deliver warning and a way of escape for believing souls. He spoke with Noah before the flood, Abraham before the burning of Sodom and Gomorrah; Moses to deliver Israel; John the Baptist before Christ’s first advent, and Paul to write and deliver the New Testament revelation to we Gentiles.
Malachi 4:5-6, “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: And he will turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse”.
The Spirit of Elijah is here prophesied to precede the Day of the Lord. Any Bible student understands the great and dreadful Day of the Lord is Christ’s Second or ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel in power and judgment after the end of the Gentile dispensation (Isaiah 2:12, 19; I Thessalonians 5:2-3; II Peter 3:10).
Notice this twofold prophecy, Elijah will come:
1. To turn the heart of the fathers to the children,
2. To turn the heart of the children to their fathers.
The following Scriptures show us where this prophecy was partially fulfilled.
Luke 1:17, “He shall go before Him in the Spirit and power of Elijah; to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord”.
This speaks of course, of John the Baptist, but notice: the Holy Spirit divided the prophecy of Malachi and showed John fulfilling the first part only; John did not precede the great and dreadful Day of the Lord, but the earthly ministry of Jesus as the Good Shepherd.
Matthew 17:10-12, “His disciples asked Jesus, Why do the scribes say that Elijah must first come? Jesus answered, Elijah truly will come first, and restore all things, but I tell you, that Elijah has come already and they knew him not. . .”
Notice how Christ maintains the continuity of the previous Scriptures, also dividing the prophecy concerning the Elijah ministry. Jesus indicates that part of the Elijah ministry is already fulfilled and part remains to be fulfilled. In this further aspect of the Elijah ministry, He declares he will “restore all things”.
II Thessalonians 2:3, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, until first there comes a falling away and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition”.
Paul was stating the Lord’s Day would not come until there was a “falling away.” The Greek word is ‘apostasia’ and means a forsaking of the faith. If the reader continues through II Thessalonians 2, noting particularly verses 12 to 15, it becomes evident that Paul was warning of a falling away from the Word of God as brought by the Apostles. This is precisely what occurred from about the fourth century after the Roman Catholic church was organized at the first Nicea Council. By about 1200 it had replaced the authority of Scripture with the authority of the church and married Christianity with paganism. Since that time there has been a partial reformation of the Roman Catholic system of false worship, and more recently a relapse by the once Protestant churches into the apostasy of which Paul was speaking.
Acts 3:20-21, “And He will send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began”.
Peter identifies the fact that before Christ can return physically for the Millennium, there must be a rectification of all the disorders of the fall. This demands the prior restoration of the fullness of the Word and completion of the mystery of God in the revelation of Christ’s ‘parousia’ Coming to His end-time Bride, and afterwards, to 144,000 elect Israelites. Notice the similarity to Matthew 17:11. Both indicate a “restoration of all things.” Peter identifies these things as: “All things which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.” It is a restoration of all the Word of God (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7). What else is spoken through His prophets (II Peter 1:20-21)?
Now, let us now apply this Scriptural picture to our concluding text to establish:
1. Elijah is to restore “all things” (Matthew 17:11).
2. All things are to be materially restored before the second physical return of Christ (Acts 3:21).
3. All things refer to God’s unchanging Word as it was inspired and delivered through His prophets, which is the revelation that must be restored before the first resurrection (Acts 3:21).
Revelation 10:7, “In the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God already declared through His servants the prophets should be finished”.
This seventh angel is identified as the messenger who would unveil the mystery of God that has already been declared to the prophets. It is the mystery of Christ, which according to I Timothy 3:16 is God manifest in flesh. That incarnation was the whole Message of the early church prophets and apostles. This seventh angel then will reaffirm this same Word or Logos to the Gentile church, which is the continuation God creating Himself in the flesh of His glorified Family as Eve was a continuation of Adam (John 12:24; Revelation 3:14).
The first three chapters of the Book of Revelation describe the condition and characteristics of seven Gentile churches once located in Asia Minor. It is erroneous to presume that this discourse only had an application to John’s day. The first verse of the Revelation describes its contents as “things which must shortly come to pass” (in the future), thus the entire Book is prophetic, beginning with the immediate future and continuing through the Gentile dispensation to the calling of the 144,000 Israelites, the millennium, the White Throne Judgment and even the new Jerusalem.
These seven churches then were also prophetic and their characteristics applied to seven Ages which would make up the whole dispensation allotted by God to we Gentiles. From Ephesus to Laodicea, each Age had an angel who would bring it a Message from God. The word “angel,” means messenger and here it refers not to heavenly messengers but to earthly through which “the Spirit speaks to the churches.” (See Appendix I—Angels). Over the past two thousand years, God raised up a succession of great, spiritual leaders such as Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Luther, Wesley and Branham to preserve the faith, from Age to Age.
The Message of each of these angels brought rebuke and correction to the church that had fallen from the faith delivered by the messenger to the previous Age and delivered the Message to the new Age. The Message of each angel brought new birth to those whose lives became written epistles of the Message to their Age. Jesus called the full revelation of each of those Messages, “Seven Thunders,” for in the Bible a thunder signifies the Voice of God (Psalm 29:3; John 12:28-29; Revelation 4:5; 10:10:1-4).
After the Dark Ages, God anointed men, most notably Luther and Wesley, to begin the reformation of the Roman Catholic system of worship, and blessed their ministries with mighty revivals as the Light of His Word was reopening to them. The followers of these messengers, however, refused to keep walking in the Light as God continued to unveil it, stopped at a partial restoration, organized, denominated, then died and assumed the identical formalistic characteristics of the very church from which they were once delivered. Hence Revelation 10:7 indicates that the ministry of the seventh angel, or messenger to the Laodicean Church Age, would be to reveal the complete mystery of how God has veiled Himself in the flesh of His glorified Family as He redeemed the saints in each Age. When this final messenger arrives, he will declare all the Word—“all things,” from which the early church apostatized and reveal the mysteries surrounding the threefold rapture and the second appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Life and Ministry of William Branham
— A Man Sent From God —
That the ministry of William Branham qualifies as that of a major prophet, thus fulfilling Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7, should be abundantly clear to any who take time to even briefly investigate its magnitude and impact. Gordon Lindsay gave an apt commendation in the introduction to his book — “A Man Sent From God” — in which he describes his experiences and observations as he traveled with God’s Prophet:
“The story of the life of William Branham is so out of this world and beyond the ordinary that were there not available a host of infallible proofs which document and attest it’s authenticity, one might well be excused for considering it far-fetched and incredible. But the facts are so generally known, and of such a nature that they can be so easily verified by any sincere investigator, that they must stand as God’s witness to His willingness and purpose to reveal Himself again to men as He once did in the days of the prophets and the apostles. The story of this prophet’s life—for he is a prophet, though we infrequently use the term—indeed witnesses to the fact that Bible days are here again”.
Many others such as T. L. Osborne, Jack Moore, and Joseph Mattson Boze, were equally awed by the divine vindication in William Branham’s life. (For a list of remarks made by these and other servants of God, see Appendix II, Witnesses).
— Acts of The Prophet —
This excerpt from Pastor Pearry Green’s book—“The Acts of the Prophet”—will give you a glimpse of the nature of William Branham’s life and ministry. Brother Green was a friend and associate of Brother Branham, particularly in the latter years of his life. This rich little book was made up of a series of messages preached by Pastor Green in his own tabernacle then compiled and put into print.
— Early Life and Conversion —
On April 6, l909, a fifteen-year-old Kentucky mother gave birth to a baby boy. They named him William Marrion Branham, and on the day that he was born there was a strange aura, a presence, in the rustic little log cabin. A Light came whirling in through the window and hung over the crib. No wonder the people who saw it said, “What manner of child shall this be?” When the baby was but six months old, God’s protection over him was demonstrated for the first time. He and his mother, stranded in the cabin while his father was away on a job, were miraculously saved from certain death. A great snow storm had isolated the cabin. Food and firewood ran out, so the young mother simply wrapped herself and her baby in all the bedclothes they had and went to bed, waiting for the end. A neighbor a little way off, by some strange phenomenon that he couldn’t explain, had for several days felt attracted to visit the little cabin to see how his neighbors were doing. One day the urge came upon him so strong that he was not able to resist it: he crossed the hills to the cabin and found the mother and child nearly perished. Quickly he gathered firewood and built a fire, made a trip back to his home for nourishment, and nursed them back to health. Thus only by a strange Presence that the man could not explain, was he drawn to come at this hour and save the life of this particular six-month-old boy.
At the age of three, Brother Branham received his first vision. From the vision, he knew to tell his mother that though they now lived in Kentucky, some day they would live near a city called New Albany. It was not long after, that the family moved from Kentucky across the Ohio river to Indiana and a little later moved further south to Jeffersonville, Indiana, which is just a few miles from New Albany, Indiana. The vision was fulfilled.
At the age of seven, Brother Branham had another strange experience that he was unable to understand. It happened one day that, while assisting his father, he found himself passing underneath a poplar tree about the size of a barrel and a voice spoke from it saying, “Never smoke, drink, nor defile your body, for when you are older there is a work for you to do.” He couldn’t understand the mysterious event; it frightened him, and he ran to his mother. She first thought he had been snake bitten, then thought that he may just have been in nervous shock, so she put him to bed and called the doctor.
At the age of nine, one day while he was playing with friends he saw a vision of a bridge. This bridge was to extend across the Ohio River from Louisville to Jeffersonville. He told his friends that he could see the bridge and to his horror, he saw a portion of it collapse, carrying sixteen men to their deaths. His friends told this around the community and twenty two years later that bridge was built at the cost of the lives of sixteen men. The bridge stands today, between Jeffersonville and Louisville.
Once as a young man, a girl made fun of him because he wouldn’t smoke, and he actually tried to smoke to stop her derision. His testimony is that as he reached for the cigarette he heard the whirlwind again, and the more he tried, the stronger it became, until its rushing sound frightened him. Because of this Brother Branham never did smoke.
Another time a man offered him a drink in the presence of young William Branham’s father, and insisted that he take it. He was about to take the drink, because his own father called him a sissy, when the whirlwind came again. He could hear it rushing, and as he continued to put the bottle toward his lips, the wind became stronger until It frightened him and he ran off. He did not disobey God—he could not—for God had a plan for his life which He was bringing to pass.
As a teenager, he once went to a carnival, and there a fortune teller, an astrologer, walked up to him and said, “Young man, did you know that there is a sign following you?” How similar to the time when the evil spirit said to Jesus, “We know who you are, thou art the Christ, the Son of God.” The priests and the religious leaders, the most religious people in the world at the time of Christ, didn’t recognize Him, the evil spirits did. When the apostle Paul went to Thyatira to preach, he was not welcomed, but put in stocks, and a young sorceress said, “This is Paul, who preaches Christ unto us, the Message of salvation.” There was an evil spirit in her that recognized who Paul was when the others sought to persecute him. So it was in this generation. The evil spirits could recognize there was something different about Brother Branham before the religious people of the world would admit it.
Brother Branham almost died for the second time at the age of fourteen. Accidentally shot, lying in his own blood with part of his leg shot away where the blast of a shotgun had struck him, he had a vision, or experience, where he himself faded away and he saw people in hell. He saw things that were to take place among the women of the world in the 1960’s, the grotesque use of makeup and the like. These women were in hell and it shocked him to realize that there was such a place, yet he resisted the call of God upon his life, though God continued through the years to deal with him, for there was a work for him to do when he was older.
He came west to Phoenix Arizona, in 1927, at the age of nineteen. It was while there, working on a ranch, that he received word of the death of his brother Edward, who was closest to him in age. When he heard of Edward’s death, he stood and looked out across the desert, and asked himself whether Edward had been ready to meet God. Then, as he made the journey back to Jeffersonville to the funeral, the question came to him, “Are you ready?” He recalled how his father and mother wept and the great impact this made on his life as he began to wonder about himself. He was ever aware of this Voice, this Presence that he had experienced since he was a baby, wishing to speak to him. It separated him from the other boys his age, preventing their friendship because he spoke of strange things and wouldn’t smoke, drink, dance, or run around as they did. He couldn’t pattern his life after theirs, yet he didn’t know how to surrender himself to God. But through the death of Edward, the Spirit of God continued to be with him and brought him to where he actually tried to pray. He didn’t know how, but loving the wilderness, he wrote on a piece of paper, “God, help me!” He left the note stuck on a tree because he knew that God was there in nature. Finally the day arrived when he went to a place, knelt down, and though he still did not know how to pray, cried out in simplicity. That was enough to open the windows of heaven and he said it seemed like a thousand pound load lifted off his shoulders. With no other way to express his extreme joy and relief, he stood to his feet and began to leap and run about. He ran into the house and his puzzled mother asked him what was wrong. “I don’t know,” he replied, “I just feel so light!” He ran out of the house and down the road, using the only way he knew to express his elation.
Later while working for the public service company, he was exposed to some gas and was poisoned, and became very ill. An operation was performed during which he almost left this life again. The situation was grave until a supernatural event took place as a Light came and hung before him. The doctors didn’t expect him to live and when he did survive, one of the doctors came to his room after the operation and said, “Truly, God has visited this boy!” Brother Branham said that at the time he didn’t know what was happening, but that if he had known then what he learned later, he would have leaped from the bed rejoicing, healed in the Name of the Lord. After he left the hospital, he sought a deeper experience with God, because he realized that God had done a great thing for him.
On another occasion, as he knelt in a woodshed to pray, a Light came in and formed a cross. It was then that something swept over him and he experienced an exquisite feeling he had never known before. He once told me personally that it felt like rain was pelting down on his body.
Later he heard of a group of people who believed in the laying on of hands for healing, and at their church meeting, somebody laid hands upon him and he was instantly healed of a stomach problem that remained from the gas exposure.
— His Ministry Begins —
It was after this miraculous healing that he first began preaching and from his very first meeting, people were baptized. It was at a baptismal service on June 11, 1933, that another supernatural event occurred.
On this day, as Brother Branham was baptizing in the Ohio river at the foot of Spring Street in Jeffersonville, a strange Light, like a star, suddenly came whirling down and hung over his head. There were about four thousand people sitting on the bank watching, many of whom were witnesses of this inexplicable phenomenon. Some ran for fear, others fell in worship. Many pondered the meaning of this remarkable occurrence. Just as with Saul, a Voice spoke from the Light and said these words, “As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first Coming of the Lord, so are you sent to forerun His second Coming. . .”
— Seven Prophetic Visions —
The year 1933 was a time of major revelation for Brother Branham and those who followed his Message.
It was also in June of that year when Brother Branham was conducting services in the old Masonic Hall on Meggs Avenue in Jeffersonville, that seven major events were revealed to him which were to come to pass before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. On this June morning, just before he was to preach, this series of visions appeared to him.
The first was that the dictator of Italy, Mussolini, would invade Ethiopia, and according to the Voice speaking to him, Ethiopia would fall at Mussolini’s steps. However the voice continued and prophesied that there would be a dreadful end come to this dictator. He was to die a horrible death and his own people would literally spit on him. It is now history how this all happened.
The next vision indicated that America would be drawn into a World War against Germany which would be headed up by an Austrian. The prediction was that this terrible war would overthrow this leader and he would come to a mysterious end. In this vision Brother Branham was shown the great Siegfried Line, several years before it was built.
The third vision showed that there were three “isms” in the world: Fascism, Nazism, and Communism, and that the first two would come to nothing, but Communism would flourish. The Voice admonished him to keep his eyes on Russia concerning future events, and said, “Watch Russia, she will become a great world power.”
The fourth vision predicted tremendous advances in science right after the war. In this vision, he saw automobiles shaped like eggs traveling the American highways. I ask you to look at the advertisements of the Volkswagen today, even comparing it with the shape of an egg and saying, “Some shapes cannot be improved upon!” In 1933, this car had not even been designed. Also he saw a car with a bubble roof, traveling completely automatically down the highway with the driver turned and playing some kind of a game with those in the back seat. The car had no steering wheel. They have such automobiles today, controlled by electronics, which were displayed in the 1962 World’s Fair.
The fifth vision involved the womanhood of the world. In this vision he was shown the rapid moral decay of the women, starting back when they received their so-called, “liberty” to enter into world affairs by means of the vote. He saw that this right to vote would result in the election, by the women of America, of a “boy” president. (Just remember that Jack Kennedy won his election by the vote of the women). Finally, the vision showed the women stripped practically naked, covered merely with a tiny apron about the size and shape of a fig leaf.
In the sixth vision, there arose in the United States a beautiful woman, clothed in splendor and royal robes, with great power given to her. She was beautiful to look upon, but there was a “hardness about her that defied description.” Beautiful as she was, she was cruel, wicked, cunning, and deceitful and dominated the land with her authority holding complete power over the people. The vision indicated that either such a woman would literally arise or that this was merely a type of an organization Scripturally characterized as a woman. Though the Voice did not reveal who she was, Brother Branham felt in his heart that this woman represented the rising Roman Catholic church, and he inserted in parentheses at the end of the vision, which he had written out, the words, “perhaps the Roman Catholic church”.
Then the Voice bade Brother Branham to look once more. As he turned, he beheld a great explosion which rent the entire land and left America a smoldering, chaotic ruin. As far as the eye could see, there was nothing but craters and smoking piles of debris, with no humanity in sight—the seventh vision then faded away.
— Commissioned by An Angel —
After Brother Branham’s strange early life, the years passed by, and he served God to the best of his ability as a pastor and laborer in the Kingdom of God.
The beginning of what was to be a tremendous change in his life and ministry occurred on May 7, 1946. It all started as he was leaving on a hunting trip with a friend. Directly as he walked beneath a maple tree in the front yard of his home, on 8th Street in Jeffersonville, Indiana, he relates that a mighty, rushing wind came into the tree. It hit the top of the maple tree and it seemed to him that the tree would be torn apart. The tremendous impact caused him to stagger and his wife and others ran to him, thinking that he had become ill. He turned to her and said these words, “For over twenty years I’ve not been able to understand this ministry, this strange feeling on myself. I can’t go on like this. I’ve got to have the answer! Is this of God! What is it all about?” He told her that he was going away, that he would leave her and the children to seek God with his Bible and prayer and that he would not come back until he found the answer.
Having made up his mind and stating his intentions, Brother Branham went alone to seek God in a secret place, determined to know the answer and to find peace in his heart about this. God, sometime or another in Brother Branham’s younger life, had led him to a cave which he has spoken of often in his later tapes and said that no man could find it. The cave is furnished by nature as though for his very own use. Inside there is a round rock shaped like a table, another, shaped like a chair, and also a place for a man to lie down and sleep. He put none of this there—it simply was there. It was to that secret cave he went that eventful night. Brother Branham lay prostrate on his face in the cave before God. After he had prayed his heart out in sincerity, seeking God, he sat up and waited for an answer. How many times have we heard him say, “They that wait upon the Lord. . .” So often when we pray, we do all the talking, and as soon we are through talking, we get up and leave. He said that the secret is after you have prayed to have patience to wait until God chooses to speak back. That is, if you believe that God has heard you, then wait for the answer.
It was about the 11th hour that he saw a soft light appearing before him. He looked up and rose to move toward this Light and there hung that great star. It didn’t have five points like a star, but looked more like a ball of fire. Then, he heard footsteps, and a man of great stature approached him. The man weighed perhaps two hundred pounds, had a dark complexion, no beard, and shoulder-length hair. As the man caught his eye, Brother Branham became very fearful, but the stranger looked at him in a kindly manner and began to speak. Just as an angel stood by Paul and gave him instructions, so this angel stood by Brother Branham and gave him instructions, I have placed these instructions here in seven separate categories:
“Fear not!” said the angel, putting Brother Branham at ease, and continued, saying, “I am a messenger, sent unto you from the Presence of Almighty God.” That was the first phase, calming any fears and identifying himself.
In the second phase, he spoke to Brother Branham about his life, saying, “I want you to know that your strange life has been for a purpose in preparing you to do a job that God has ordained for you to do from your birth.”
Third phase: the angel telling him that there were some conditions that he must meet and keep. He said, “If you will he sincere, and you can get the people to believe you. . .” And then he went on to the fourth phase—the results:
He said, “. . . nothing will stand before your prayers, not even cancer!”
The fifth phase of the angel’s message was a warning to the people that they were to confess their sins before they came before this man of God, and that he was to tell the people that their thoughts speak louder before the throne of God than do their words. This was a warning to all mankind.
Then, the angel went into the sixth phase and told Brother Branham things concerning his life and ministry. He was told that he would preach before multitudes all over the world and that he would stand in packed auditoriums, with people turned away for lack of room. His church in Jeffersonville would become a centralized place where people would come from all over the world, seeking his prayers for their deliverance.
Not only that, but the angel went on to say that “You shall pray for kings and rulers and potentates.”
You ask, “Did this happen?” Let us see if it did.
Brother Branham returned to his little tabernacle the next week, and the old timers will tell you of a sincere young man speaking without a doubt in his mind telling them what that angel had said, and saying, “There will be thousands come here, they’ll crowd you out. You won’t find a seat unless you’re sincere with God and come early.” People of the city, educated people, looked at him and said, “Well Billy Branham, they’ll never do that.” But did they? In Brother Branham’s files is a letter from the late King George VI of England, thanking him for coming to him, at the King’s request for prayer, when the King was healed of a leg ailment. Also in a meeting one day, a very well-known congressman, a member of the United States Congress for years, confined to a wheel chair, was sitting back in the aisle of the auditorium while Brother Branham was preaching his Message of faith and healing. Like Paul in the Book of Acts, he stopped his sermon, looked down at this man and said, “Sir, I perceive you have faith to be healed. Rise and walk out of the wheelchair.” And Congressman Upshaw, who had been confined to the wheelchair for over 60 years, stood to his feet and walked down the aisle, praising God. He returned to Washington D.C., stood on the steps of the Capitol Building, and declared William Marrion Branham to be a prophet of God of the twentieth century. Faithfully, as long as he lived, the Congressman sent Brother Branham a Stetson hat for Christmas every year. In contrast, there were other people in the world who shrugged him off as an unknown. They just were not listening, or could not hear.
The healing of Congressman Upshaw was carried by Reader’s Digest. Is it not interesting that two wonderful articles of healings like this in the life and ministry of Brother Branham were carried by the largest circulation magazine in the world, Reader’s Digest, quoted second only to the Bible? People say “I read it in Reader’s Digest,” in the same manner that others might speak of the Bible. It was nothing less than God ordaining it so that the world could know that He had sent a prophet. If they would only have listened.
The seventh phase of the angel’s Message concerned the different phases of Brother Branham’s ministry. Some people refer to these as the first sign and the second sign. But Brother Branham spoke of them as the “three pulls.” (Like the pulls a fisherman makes in attracting the fish, setting the hook, and taking the fish). The angel told him that, under the anointing, he would be able to take people by the hand and the spirit of disease in that person would cause such a commotion and a reaction when it made contact with his spirit that he would he able to feel this vibration physically in his hand. By telling people what the disease was, it would inspire the faith of the audience, and they too, would believe.
— Three Pulls —
When I first saw Brother Branham, this was the phase of his ministry, the “pull,” being manifested. When people came before him, unless he could visibly see their ailment, like blindness, being crippled, or paralysis, he would take them by the hand, and if they had sin in their life, he told them first of their sin.
The second sign, or “pull,” was to be his knowing the secrets of the heart. He would be able to just talk to people and he would know their name and other facts about them. (Remember, the Word of God is sharper than a two edged sword and a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart). People began to see this manifested in the late 1950’s and the early 1960’s in Brother Branham’s ministry.
But there was to be a third pull and of this third pull or the final phase of his ministry—he said, “This will be the thing that will take the Bride in the Rapture.”
— The Third Pull —
In one of Brother Branham’s sermons entitled, “The Anointed Ones at the End Time,” he was endeavoring to explain the significance of this latter part of his ministry. The following excerpt was uttered as he came to the end of his Message:
“Notice the very day when this messenger begins to declare his Message. See? The First Pull, healing: Second Pull, prophesying: Third Pull, the opening of the Word, the mysteries revealed. There’s no higher order to reveal the Word than prophets. But the only way the prophet can be vindicated is by the Word. And remember, the Third Pull was the opening of them Seven Seals to reveal the hidden Truth that’s been sealed in the Word.”
Brother Branham’s third pull was the teaching segment of his ministry. The first two pulls drew attention to his prophetic ministry by the constant exercise of the supernatural, but this generation needed more than a demonstration of miracles. God’s purpose was to send this Elijah with a Message of restoration.
— God Vindicates His Own —
The world, however, remembers him chiefly for his operation in the realm of the Supernatural and certainly in our day, there has been no parallel. The Gospel of John comes to a close with this remarkable statement:
“And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written” (John 21:25).
It is not preposterous to say that such also is the case of the ministry of Jesus Christ in His prophet today. To attempt to outline the miracles and Supernatural manifestations and their implications would be as impossible as Abraham counting the stars. Till the last year of his ministry (1965), God’s humble prophet was still being used to discern hearts, heal every manner of illness and perform diverse miracles. By the providence of God’s grace, and a wonderful invention called the tape recorder, thousands of the miracles were recorded as they happened. The world has been left with an authentic record of God in action, not two thousand years ago, but today! Thousands still living, who were in Brother Branham’s meetings, witnessed his gift of discernment and saw the healings which took place.
— A Prophet Visits South Africa —
Probably, his greatest single crusade was held in South Africa. His entire ministry in that country was so phenomenal that Julius Stadsklev, who traveled with him, wrote a book dealing only with that trip. In his book—A Prophet Visits South Africa—he relates vividly the results of the Durban meetings. Following are just a few remarks taken from his book:
“Sunday, Nov. 25, 1951:
Before the afternoon service started, reports were coming in of those who had received their healing in the morning service. It would be impossible to relate the many cases of definite healings which took place in Durban that day. As Brother Branham saw visions of healings he pointed out the people and told them that they were healed. There were those who stepped out of their wheelchairs and walked, some for the first time in many years. There was the deaf and dumb who smiled and made vocal sounds as they were able to hear for the first time in their lives. There were the little children who could not understand it all but who were now able to walk as they had never been able to before.
Truly this was a great day of spiritual awakening in the city of Durban. According to the police force fifty-five to sixty thousand people had come to hear the Gospel in addition to fifteen thousand who had been turned away from the gates for lack of room in the largest, finest race course in South Africa. God had spoken to the hearts of thousands and had caused them to come out to hear the Gospel and receive healing for both soul and body”.
A local Pastor named John F. Wooderson was one of three whose comments were recorded in Mr. Stadsklev’s book. The following is a further excerpt:
“But is it not the ministry of the miraculous given to men by God in these days which is a most vital factor and potent force in the spiritual awakening of the countries of the world. Is not this God’s answer to an age of apathy, unbelief and skepticism? Under the God honoured ministry of Brother William Branham the most amazing scenes were witnessed. One could not help but be reminded of New Testament days. From everywhere the sick came with all manner of afflictions . . . some on crutches, wheelchairs, and stretchers. The extraordinary gift possessed by God’s servant, which was manifested in the diagnosis of the ills of men and women, together with his deep humility and overwhelming compassion for suffering humanity was convincing proof that he was indeed “A man sent from God.” Never will we forget those prayers which came from the innermost depths of his soul, as he called upon God to “have mercy upon these poor people and heal them.” And whilst he prayed, the answer came! All over those vast gatherings men and women were delivered from the power of Satan in their bodies. Crooked limbs were straightened—the blind saw, the deaf heard. Cancers, growths, heart ailments were healed in the Name of Jesus. Brother Branham faithfully pointed his large audiences to the only source of healing, and never failed to discredit the idea that he had any ability to heal”.
Let me conclude this portion with some comments made by F.F. Bosworth as he described his impression of the prophet’s ministry:
“Brother Branham is a channel for more than the mere gift of healing; he is also a seer as were the Old Testament Prophets. He sees events before they take place. I asked him, “What do you mean? How do you see them?” He replied, “Just as I see you: only that I know it is a vision.” Just as clearly as one sees material things around them, Brother Branham, while in prayer during the day, sees in vision some of the principal miracles before they take place that night. He sees some carried in on ambulance cots, or sitting in wheel chairs, and can describe how they look and how they are dressed, etc. While being shown these miracles in advance, he usually becomes, for the time, unconscious of things going on around him. Not once during the more than three years since receiving the gift have these revelations failed to produce perfect miracles exactly as he had already seen them in visions. At these times he can say with absolute certainty, “Thus saith the Lord,” and he is never wrong. He told me last week that he simply acts out what he has already seen himself doing in the vision. The success of the phase of his ministry is exactly 100 percent.
When the gift is operating, Brother Branham is the most sensitive person to the Presence and working of the Holy Spirit and to spiritual realities of any person I have ever known. Under the anointing, which operates his Spiritual gifts, and when he is conscious of the Angel’s presence, he seems to break through the veil of the flesh into the world of Spirit, to be struck through and through with a sense of the unseen”.

Chaos Continues as Ash Drifts across Europe
April 17, 2010 — Europe’s airports could remain closed for another day or two as ash from a volcanic eruption in Iceland continues to drift across the continent. But experts say the fallout from the Iceland volcano, which has caused the most extensive shutdown of airspace since the September 11 [false flag – Ed] terrorist attacks in 2001, will be felt for a long time. While the majority of flights may be back in the air by the beginning of next week, it will be many more days before the airlines get their schedules back on track. . . Full story: abc.net.au
China Cremates Victims of Earthquake
April 17, 2010 — Buddhist monks cremated hundreds of earthquake victims Saturday on a huge funeral pyre near the epicenter of the disaster in a remote part of northwestern China. . . official death toll from this week’s earthquake has risen to 1,144, as the search for survivors continues. China’s Health Ministry said Friday more than 1,000 of the critically injured have been taken out of the devastated region to hospitals with better medical facilities. More than 11,000 were injured in Wednesday’s 6.9 magnitude quake in the Yushu region of Qinghai province. Some 300 are still missing. . . large cracks have appeared on many of the buildings that remain standing. A crack that appeared in a reservoir in the area is causing concern, with workers racing to prevent a potential flood. . . Full story: voanews.com
7.2 Earthquake on Mexicali Baja Laguna Salada Fault
The accompanying video graphically displays dust rising from mountains at Baja on the Mexicali border shaken by the “Easter Earthquake” that struck on Resurrection Sunday, 2010. This brings to mind the “Easter Earthquake” that almost sunk Alaska on Good Friday, 1964, three days after it was spoken by the Prophet William Branham at Sunset Mountain, and just over a year after the close of the Laodicean Church Age. There in 1963 he was caught up into a constellation of the theophanies of the Messengers to previous six Church Ages. God said, “Return to Jeffersonville where I will reveal the mystery of the Seven Seals. This is explained and illustrated in our free PowerPoint presentation, “The Second Coming of Christ,” available for the asking—just advise your postal address).
God never sends judgment without first providing warning and a way of escape (Amos 3:7; Matthew 24). Might the 2010 Earthquake be God’s last sign warning the world of the earthquake prophesied to sink Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300-400 mile segment of earth’s crust earth, marking the end of the Gentile dispensation and calling the first resurrection . . . one Easter very soon?

Evolution Exposed as Atheist Scam for Lucifer’s Global Hegemony
At the 2010 Global Atheist Convention on Melbourne, Australia, Richard Dawkins was applauded by a group of supporters as the world’s most famous living atheist. In his book “The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution,” Dawkins writes, “I challenge anyone to submit ‘out-of-sequence’ fossil finds that disprove evolution.” And in the January issue of “Investigate,” NZ follower Warwick Don said, “evolution would be falsified if even one out-of-sequence fossil were ever found in the fossil record. For example, a fossil ‘human’ in the Carboniferous. . . No such anachronistic fossils have ever been found.”
Richard and Don theorise that life forms evolved from simple to complex, ending in man. But what if human remains were to turn up in the “oldest” strata? Would that mean that man was here at the beginning of life on earth?
A fossil human skull has been found in Carboniferous strata near Mahanoy City, Pennsylvania. Specimens of this skull were taken by Chinese scientist Lin Liangtai to the geology department of National Taiwan University, then on March 28, 2008 it was scanned by the Computed Tomography system of Alberta Research Council in Canada.
This and more than 20 other fossils from the same Carboniferous strata have been thin-sectioned and more than 1,000 microscopic pictures taken. Examinations have been made not only through a stereo-microscope, but also through a digital microscope, a transmitted-light microscope and a scanning electron microscope. Images of the object show numerous remains of:
(1) bone cells (osteocytes);
(2) branching blood vessel remains, Haversian canals and osteons;
(3) transverse section remains of blood vessels;
(4) red blood cells;
(5) degraded remains of neurons, neuroglial cells and nerve fibers;
(6) muscle fibres;
(7) various fossilized tissues.
It contains fossilized nerve cells, dendrites and somas of brain cells, that exist only in the central nervous system and which are not found in any organ except brains. The remains point to a calvarium fossil that once contained brain tissue. The blood vessels in the brain have carbonized into shiny bituminous coal/anthracite.
No rocks or plants contain the remains of neurons, neuroglial cells, bone cells, red blood cells, Haversian canals, osteons and blood vessels all at the same time. Pictures of the other Carboniferous fossils likewise show Haversian canals and osteons, which are distinguishing features of fossil bone micro-structures. They include organs such as human liver, fingers, penises, testes, kidneys, limb, etc.
All crania have distinctive shapes among different animal orders. Human skull caps have a unique shape from mammalian skull caps. The skull’s inner cavity has a capacity of 1,025cc – 1,665cc. The main distinction of human skulls lies in their large cranial capacity. No animal has a skull that remotely matches human skulls in cranial capacity, cranial shape and cranial size.
The analysis shows that this subject fossil matches human skull caps in cranial size, cranial capacity, and cranial shape. Thus, it can be identified as a human calvarium fossil by forensic experts on human skulls. One such expert is Wilton Krogman, who has physically examined the fossil and confirmed it to be a human calvarium fossil.
Portions of the fossil, including some of the fossil’s blood vessels have turned into coal. The skull was discovered near Mahanoy City between the coal veins. The Pennsylvania state government’s geological unit has confirmed in writing to Lin Liangtai that fossils found near Mahanoy City are all 305 (+/- 7) million years old. For over 27 years, the owner of the fossils, Ed Conrad, has attested that all his fossils were found between anthracite coal veins near Shenandoah and Mahanoy City, Pennsylvania. Any animal fossil must have lived there in the Carboniferous age.
Among Conrad’s other fossils are:
(a) a coalified axe handle as well-made as those sold on e-bay.
(b) a coalified piece of limb cut flatly across soft flesh and hard bone, as if with a sharp knife, and
(c) a fossilized human finger complete with skin tissue, finger nail, ligaments, and the middle phalanx.
Twenty medical experts have pronounced this as a genuine human finger. This is not good news for the evolution theory. Not only have numerous other human remains been discovered in Carboniferous strata—such as a complete skeleton in Carboniferous (Macoupin County, Illinois—The Geologist), but also in EVERY other so-called geological age—for example a human skeleton in Silurian rock (Franklin County, Missouri—Scientific American); and tools, inscriptions and physical human remains in Cretaceous, Triassic, Devonian, Ordovacian and Cambrian. Hundreds of reports have appeared in Scientific American.
This is not about the age of the earth—a increasingly debatable topic—but about the evolutionary succession-of-life blunder. Even one man found in the Carboniferous exposes evolution as a scam! Because they have not sought truth about man’s origin and ancestry, many honest but misinformed scientists are caught up in the system—while their mentors suppress this information because careers, reputations and funding are at stake.

Comment: Evolution is a lie like the mythology that oil is formed from the remains of prehistoric creatures, because both theories require death. There was no death prior to the fall: Life comes from God (John 6:63; 14:6), whereas death emanates from Satan (Genesis 2:16-17; 3:1-14; Romans 6:23).
The Secret History of the Atomic Bomb
April 4, 2010 — The Prophet said, “The Tree of Knowledge produced death. Cain killed his brother, Abel. The wicked killed the righteous. It set a pattern. It will keep that pattern until the restoration of all things as spoken by the prophets.
The Tree of Knowledge produced clever men; men of renown. But their ways are the ways of death. God’s people are simple but spiritual minded, leaning toward God and nature, calmly tilling the soil, caring for truth rather than wealth. The seed of the serpent has brought tremendous commerce, wonderful inventions, but with it all comes death. Their gunpowder and atomic bombs kill in war; and in peace time their mechanical inventions, such as the car, kill even more in a time of peace than do the inventions of war destroy in times of trouble. Death and destruction are the fruits of her labors.
But they are religious. They believe in God. They are like their father, the devil, and their ancestor, Cain. Both of them believed in God. They go to church. They mingle with the righteous as do tares mingle with the wheat. In so doing they corrupt and produce a Nicolaitane religion. They spread their poison in every effort to destroy the seed of God even as Cain killed Abel. There is no fear of God before their eyes.
But God loses none of His own. He keeps them even in death, and has promised that in the last day He will raise them up” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages p.107:2-4; Matthew 23:33-35).
“There was a nation called the Medes and Persians. They’d got some scientific work too. Which is now the Medo-Persians are the Indians, the Hindus, in India as our brother just spoke. They finally wound up in India as the Hindu. And they had scientifically found a way that they could by-pass the river Euphrates. They couldn’t get through the walls, but they by-passed the river and was coming under the gates. Science is working somewhere, a great ungodly, heathen nation at that time.
And God put a sign on the wall to let them know that their days were finished. And God’s put a sign on our wall and our great rock-and-roll party. And there’s a sputnik flying through the skies. Oh, we thought we had it all, didn’t we? We thought we knowed it all. But Russia according to our own science is five years ahead of us. And when we’re caught up in five years, they’ll be ten years farther the other way. God’s letting an ungodly nation, letting an ungodly people, that took those Jewish scientists up there. . . And they’re far ahead of us. We’re putting our time to wine, women, and big time, and they’re working day and night, how to blow us up. There’s not one thing that could keep them from doing it right now. Look the condition we’re in, the whole nation.
You remember that army officer. . . Brother Roberson and I were talking yesterday. . . They interviewed him. One of the great scientists said, “I don’t want you to scare the people, but I want you to tell us the truth. Is there danger?”
“At any minute it could happen. . . And the Scripture predicts that Russia will do it. . . Oh, we’ve had a rock-and-roll party. We forgot God. We’ve went too much for television, too much for the world. And they’ve been preparing all the time, just like the Medo-Persians. And now the supernatural has come, and the handwriting is on the wall, not on the wall, but in the sky. . . (The Handwriting on the Wall, #29:5, p. 14:120-124).
A very popular movie in Japan was “Pride, The Fateful Moment,” which shows Prime Minister General Hideki Tojo in a favorable light. With six others, he was hanged in 1968 as a war criminal. During his trial, his lawyers stated to the International Tribunal for the Far East, the Asian version of Nuremberg Trials, that Tojo’s war crimes could not begin to approach the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The prosecutors immediately objected, and censored their statements. That was the last time there was any official recognition of the atomic bomb massacres in Japan. Japanese officials have been effectively prevented from taking any stand on this matter because the American military occupation, which officially ended in 1952 with the Treaty with Japan, was quietly continued. Today, 49,000 American troops are still stationed in Japan, and there is no public discussion of the crimes of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. . .
Despite the lack of public interest, the record is clear, and easily available to anyone who is interested. My interest in this subject, dormant for many years was suddenly rekindled during my annual lecture tour in Japan. My hosts had taken me to the city of Nagasaki for the first time. Without telling me their plans, they entered the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum. I thought it would be an interesting experience, but, to my surprise, when I walked into the exhibition rooms, I was suddenly overcome by sadness. Realizing that I was about to burst into tears, I moved away from my companions, and stood biting my lip. Even so, it seemed impossible to control myself. I was surrounded by the most gruesome objects, the fingers of a human hand fused with glass, a photograph of the shadow of a man on a brick wall; the man had been vaporized in the explosion. . . It took many weeks of research to uncover what turned out to be the most far-reaching conspiracy of all time, the program of a few dedicated revolutionaries to seize control of the entire world, by inventing the most powerful weapon ever unveiled.
The story begins in Germany. In the 1930s, Germany and Japan had a number of scientists working on the development of nuclear fission. In both of these countries, their leaders sternly forbade them to continue their research. Adolf Hitler said he would never allow anyone in Germany to work to work on such an inhumane weapon.
The Emperor of Japan let his scientists know that he would never approve such a weapon. At that time the United States had no one working on nuclear fission. The disgruntled German scientists contacted friends in the United States, and were told that there was a possibility of government support for their work here. As Don Beyer tells these immigrants to the United States pushed their program. . .
Control of atomic energy had now given the New World Order clique enormous power, and Eisenhower, in his farewell speech to the American people on leaving the Presidency In Review (Doubleday, 1969), on January 17, 1961, warned, “In the councils of government we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the miliary-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.”
By failing to name the power behind the military-industrial complex, the international bankers, Eisenhower left the American people in the dark as to whom he was actually warning them against. To this day they do not understand what he was trying to say, that the international bankers, the Zionists and the Freemasons had formed an unholy alliance whose money and power could not be overcome by righteous citizens of the United States. . .

The Jewish Peril and the Catholic Church
Jewish authorities are well aware of the two phases of Martin Luther’s ministry: the first wherein he wrote “Jesus Christ was Born a Jew,” (an unintentional and unscriptural blasphemy) filled with sympathy for their long unbelief which he laid on the unsympathetic attitude of the Roman Catholic church. His study of the Talmud became the dividing line. His second phase was one of warning against the self-styled Jews as destroyers of Christianity and of Christians. After Luther became conversant with the Babylonian Talmud and the ritual cursings of Judaism, he declared that any one who condones such blasphemies is partaker of their sin (Revelation 18:4).
This partial transcript of an address delivered at the 1936 B’nai B’rith Convention in Paris explains Luther’s changed attitude toward the so-called “Jews”:
“As long as there remains among the Gentiles any moral conception of the social order, and until all faith, patriotism, and dignity are uprooted, our reign over the world shall not come. We have already fulfilled part of our work, but we cannot yet claim that the whole of our work is done. We have still a long way to go before we can overthrow our main opponent: the Catholic Church. . .
We must always bear in mind that the Catholic Church is the only institution which has stood, and which will, as long as it remains in existence, stand in our way. The Catholic Church, with her methodical work and her edifying and moral teachings, will always keep her children in such a state of mind as to make them too self-respecting to yield to our domination, and to bow before our future king of Israel. . .
That is why we have been striving to discover the best way of shaking the Catholic Church to her very foundations. We have spread the spirit of revolt and false liberalism among the nations of the Gentiles so as to persuade them away from their faith and even to make them ashamed of professing the precepts of their Religion and obeying the Commandments of their Church. We have brought many of them to boast of being atheists, and more than that, to glory in being descendants of the ape! We have given them new theories, impossible of realization, such as Communism, Anarchism, and Socialism, which are now serving our purposes. The stupid Gentiles have accepted them with the greatest enthusiasm, without realizing that those theories are ours, and that they constitute our most powerful instrument against themselves.
We have blackened the Catholic Church with the most ignominious calumnies, we have stained her history and disgraced even her noblest activities. We have imputed to her the wrongs of her enemies, and thus brought these latter to stand more closely by our side. . . So much so, that we are now witnessing to our greatest satisfaction, rebellions against the Church in several countries. . . We have turned her clergy into objects of hatred and ridicule, we have subjected them to the contempt of the crowd. . . We have caused the practice of the Catholic religion to be considered out of date and a mere waste of time. . .
And the Gentiles, in their stupidity, have proved easier dupes than we expected them to be. One would expect more intelligence and more practical common sense, but they are no better than a herd of sheep. Let them graze in our fields till they become fat enough to be worthy of being immolated to our future King of the World . . . We have founded many secret associations, which all work for our purpose, under our orders and our direction. We have made it an honor, a great honor, for the Gentiles to join us in our organizations, which are, thanks to our gold, flourishing now more than ever. Yet it remains our secret that those Gentiles who betray their own and most precious interests, by joining us in our plot, should never know that those associations are of our creation, and that they serve our purpose. One of the many triumphs of our Freemasonry is that those Gentiles who become members of our Lodges, should never suspect that we are using them to build their own jails, upon whose terraces we shall erect the throne of our Universal King of Israel; and should never know that we are commanding them to forge the chains of their own servility to our future King of the World . . .
So far, we have considered our strategy in our attacks upon the Catholic Church from the outside. But this is not all. Let us now explain how we have gone further in our work, to hasten the ruin of the Catholic Church. . . and how we have brought even some of her Clergy to become pioneers of our cause.
Apart altogether from the influence of our philosophy, we have taken other steps to secure a breach in the Catholic Church. Let me explain how this has been done. We have induced some of our children to join the Christian Body, with the explicit intimation that they should work in a still more efficient way for the disintegration of the Christian Church, by creating scandals within her. We have thus followed the advice of our Prince of the Jews, who so wisely said:
“Beloved Brethren in Moses:
We have received your letter in which you tell us of your anxieties and misfortunes which you are enduring. We are pierced by a great pain to hear it as yourselves.
The advice of the Grand Satraps and Rabbis is the following:
1. As for what you say that the King of Spain obliges you to become Christians: do it, since you cannot do otherwise.
2. As for what you say about the command to despoil you of your property: make your sons merchants that they may despoil, little by little, the Christians of theirs.
3. As for what you say about making attempts on your lives: make your sons doctors and apothecaries, that they may take away Christians lives.
4. As for what you say of their destroying your synagogues: make your sons canons and clerics in order that they may destroy their churches.
5. As for the many other vexations you complain of arrange for your sons to become advocates and lawyers and see that they always mix in affairs of State, that by putting Christians under your yoke you may dominate the world and be avenged on them.
6. Do not swerve from this order we give you, because you will find by experience that humiliated as you are, you will reach the actuality of power.
[Signed] The Prince of the Jews of Constantinople.”
Unfortunately, not all among the ‘convert’ Jews have proved faithful to their mission. Many of them have even betrayed us! But, on the other hand, others have kept their promise and honored their word. Thus the counsel of our Elders has proved successful.
We are the Fathers of all Revolutions, even of those which sometimes happen to turn against us. We are the supreme Masters of Peace and War. We can boast of being the Creators of the Reformation! Calvin was one of our Children; he was of Jewish descent, and was entrusted by Jewish authority and encouraged with Jewish finance to draft his scheme in the Reformation. [Calvin’s real name was “Cohen.” Known in France as “Jean Cauvin” (Noyons, “A Cabalistic Jew,” in England he became John Calvin. William Thomas Walsh, “Phillip II,” p. 248 “The origin of Calvin” (whose real name was Chauvin). Lucin Wolf, “Transactions, Jewish Historical Society of England,” Vol. XI, p. 8; Goris, “Les Colonies Marchandes Meridionales Anvers”; Lea, “History of the Inquisition of Spain,” Vol. III, p. 413. Juir Lina, “Architects of Deception,” The Jewish religious Reformer Johann Calvin (born Cauin, 1509 – 1564) of Switzerland allowed interest, and the freemason Henry VIII of England reduced the laws against usury. The money-changers were once again able to assert themselves. David Icke, “The Biggest Secret,” Calvin was educated at College du Montagu, the same college in which Ignatius Loyola was educated].
Martin Luther yielded to the influence of his Jewish friends [Manie Maritz, “My Iewe en strew,” p. 20], and again, by Jewish authority, and with Jewish finance, his plot against the Catholic Church met with success. But unfortunately he discovered the deception, and became a threat to us, so we disposed of him as we have so many others who dare to oppose us. . .
Thanks to our propaganda, to our theories of Liberalism (Protocol 9:9) and to our misrepresentations of freedom, the minds of many among the Gentiles were ready to welcome the Reformation. They separated from the Church to fall into our snare. And thus the Catholic Church has been sensibly weakened, and her authority over the Kings of the Gentiles has been reduced to almost naught.
We are grateful to Protestants for their loyalty to our wishes, although most of them are, in the sincerity of their faith, unaware of their loyalty to us. We are grateful to them for the wonderful help they are giving us in our fight against the stronghold of Christian Civilization, and in our preparations for the advent of our supremacy over the whole world and over the Kingdoms of the Gentiles.
So far we have succeeded in overthrowing most of the Thrones of Europe. The rest will follow in the near future. Russia has already worshiped our rule, France, with her Masonic Government, is under our thumb. England, in her dependence upon our finance is under our heel; and in her Protestantism is our hope for the destruction of the Catholic Church. Spain and Mexico are but toys in our hands. And many other countries, including the United States, have already fallen before our scheming.
But the Catholic Church is still alive . . .
We must destroy her without the least delay and without the slightest mercy. Most of the Press in the world is under our Control (Protocol 7:5); let us therefore encourage in a still more violent way the hatred of the world against the Christian Church. Let us intensify our activities in poisoning the morality of the Gentiles. Let us spread the spirit of revolution (Protocol 11:3) in the minds of the people. They must be made to despise Patriotism and the love of their family, to consider their faith as a humbug, their obedience to their Christ as a degrading servility, so that they become deaf to the appeal of the Church and blind to her warnings against us. Let us, above all, make it impossible for Christians to be reunited, or for non-Christians to join the Church; otherwise the greatest obstruction to our domination will be strengthened and all our work undone. Our plot will be unveiled, the Gentiles will turn against us, in the spirit of revenge, and our domination over them will never be realized.
Let us remember that as long as there still remain active enemies of the Christian Church, we may hope to become Master of the World . . . And let us remember always that the future Jewish King will never reign in the world before Christianity is overthrown, as well as all the other reigning monarchs of the Gentiles upon earth.
When the time comes and the power of the Pope shall at last be broken, the fingers of an invisible hand will call the attention of the masses of the people to the court of the Sovereign Pontiff to let them know that we have completely undermined the power of the Papacy. . . The King of the Jews will then be the real pope and the Father of the Jewish World-Church” (Protocol 17:4). Published in “The London Catholic Gazette,” February, 1936, the monthly organ of the Catholic Missionary Society of England. The Catholic Gazette was forced out of business and closed by the Jews and their ‘friends’ shortly after the publication of this article. Further substantiation its authenticity is “Le Reveil du Peuple” published in Paris at the time.
It is interesting to observe how the ‘hidden hand’ has employed the Hegelian dialectic against Zionism, which is dispensable now that it has achieved the objective for which it was created, and Judaeo-Catholicism which was created to destroy the faith, but is still necessary to unite humanity under Lucifer’s one world government. And contrary to Zionist boasting, the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church will rule to the end when it will be destroyed by Judaeo-Communism in the consummation of life.
The following citations evince the moral depravity of the Roman church rife from the third century to the time of Luther’s initial visit to the Vatican, rages to this day:
“Thou shalt do no murder, thou shalt not commit adultery, thou shalt not corrupt boys, thou shalt not commit fornication, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not deal in magic, thou shalt do no sorcery, thou shalt not murder a child by abortion nor kill them when born, thou shalt not covet thy neighbors goods” (Didache 2:2). Such sins were obviously a problem within the Judaeo-Roman Catholic clergy of the third century as they are today.
The Council of Elvira in the first quarter of the fourth century is the earliest Church council after the Council of Jerusalem for which records exist. This Council proposed irrevocable exclusion for those who sexually abuse boys (Canon 71). That is, they were not to receive the Sacrament of Communion even at the point of death (Catholic University of America).
St. Peter Damian’s “Book of Gomorrah” (AD1051) attacked the sexual immorality of the clergy of his time and the lax superiors who failed to curb it. He condemned priests who defiled men or boys coming for confession, and priests who gave the sacrament of penance to their own victims. He urged Pope Leo IX to act to redress the damage caused by offending clerics—the response was a model of inaction, a prelude to the experience of our own era as the hierarchy continues to blithely tip-toe over the dead bodies of hundreds of homosexual priests who have died of AIDS or priests committed suicide rather than face sex abuse charges, while reports of criminal assaults by pederast/homosexual priests and religious continue to mount one more bizarre than the other.
The Significance of a Name
In the Bible, names express the nature of one person or thing as it stands in relation to another, the correspondence or contrast or feeling that prevails between persons or things. As man has departed more and more from the primitive truth, the connection between names and things has become more arbitrary. In Genesis on the contrary the names are nearly all significant. Adam’s naming the animals implies at once his power of speech, distinguishing him above them, and his knowledge of their characteristics as enabling him to suit the name to the nature. God, in calling His people into new and close relationship with Himself, gives them a new name. So the name was given the child at circumcision, because he is symbolically separated from original sin and the world and dedicated to God under the old covenant (Luke 1:59; 2:21). The Judaeo-Roman Catholic church’s imitation is a mock baptism and christening or naming ceremony, claiming him for and obligating his parents to the church. Christians dedicate their children to the Lord in prayer, promising to raise them in the admonition of God who gives them a new nature and a new name when they are born the second time—the new Name and the nature are that of His only begotten Son.
Christ gives to His Bride a new revelation of Himself and His “new Name” which the elect alone are capable of receiving (Revelation 2:17; 3:12). It was revealed to us in the Seven Thunders. Christians are baptized into the Name or the revealed nature of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, “having received like precious faith [with our apostolic fathers when we were born-again] . . . whereby we are granted great and precious promises by means of which we might escape the corruption that is in the world through lust and become partakers of the Divine nature” (II Peter 1:4).
Isaiah 63-65 prophesy how Israel’s Messiah will destroy their enemy, the Edomite Jews and “holier than thou” apostate Israelites who have not called upon His Name, of whom He says: “Your name shall be a curse word among My chosen people, for the Lord will slay you, and call His servants by another Name” (Isaiah 65:15). It foretells how He will be received by the Gentile Bride who although not formerly called by His Name become Mrs. Lord Jesus Christ and are called Christians, then promises He will preserve a remnant of 144,000 blood Israelites—“good grapes found among the clusters of bad grapes,” or “turn My hand to the little ones” (Isaiah 65:8-10; Zechariah 13:7): “the Benjamin group that’s coming up now,” born while Jesus Messiah, the antitypical Joseph is rejected by and separated from Israel, to live among the Gentiles where He marries His Gentile Bride who bears believing Gentile children (Isaiah 53:10; 65:23).
The Lord will indeed call His servants by another Name; instead of a “curse,” as the name of the Jew has been since Nebuchadnezzar coined the term for the nation God sent into captivity on account of their apostasy and confined them under Gentile dominion unto the consummation of life, the elect Israelite remnant will receive a new Name. Isaiah 62:2-4, “No more will you be called Azab, ‘God-Forsaken,’ nor your land termed Shemamah, ‘Desolate’: but you shall be called Hephzibah, ‘God’s Delight’ and your land Beulah, ‘Married’ instead of widowed or forsaken: for the Lord delights in you, and will claim your land as His own”.
The Name Jehovah expresses His revealed character towards us. Exodus 34:5-7, “Jehovah [the self-existent one] descended in the form of a pillar of Cloud, and stood there with Moses, and proclaimed the Name of Jehovah. And the Lord passed by in front of Moses and proclaimed, Jehovah, the Lord God, is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but not at all acquitting the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and on their grandchildren to the third and fourth generation.” Likewise the Names Messiah, Jesus, Immanuel, the Word, indicate His manifested relations toward us in redemption (Revelation 19:13). Isaiah 9:6-7, “His Name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon His Kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this” (Psalm 22:22; John 17:6). On February 28, 1963 He descended on Sunset Mountain in a the form of pillar of Cloud formed by the theophanies of the angels to the Seven Church Ages, Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley and William Branham, catching Brother Branham, the seventh angel (Revelation 10:7) into that constellation of star messengers (1:16, 20) and telling him, “Return to Jeffersonville for the revelation of the Seven Seals” (Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7)!
The Prophet said, “Did you ever notice, our young boys has become Ricky and Elvis? You got a child named that, change it right quick, call him number one or two, or something. . . You say, “What difference does the name mean?” Why, sure, it means something. Your name characterizes your life. “Now, Brother Branham, you’re on numerology.” No, I’m not. I’m on THUS SAITH THE LORD. Why was it when Jacob, he lived to his name as deceiver, supplanter, Jacob. And when God changed him, He changed his name. God changed Saul to Paul, Simon to Peter. Certainly, it has something. And Ricky and Elvis, and such names as that, is the modern American name which throws a child automatically right into that. See what I mean”? “The word “Elvis” means “a cat,” and the word “Ricky” means “a rat.” When you say “little Ricky” you mean “little rat.” What you call him, that’s what he is. Your kid’s named that, change it quickly for the sake of the Gospel” (The Voice of God in This Last Days, p. 10:50; God of this Evil Age, p. 34:155).
About eight years ago a woman, her son and mother moved into a nearby farm. The boy’s name was Cain: only twelve years old, he was “at enmity” with the world, breaking windows, vandalizing cars, damaging schools and breaking into farm houses. But God answers prayer—they sold up and returned to the land of Nod.
It seldom comes to mind nowadays that everyone’s name has a meaning describing his trade or occupation, family, nature, or future, as reflected in the changing of names from Miss. to Mrs., prince to king, Lucifer—the rightful title of Christ our Advocate, meaning “Light bringer” or “morning star” (Revelation 2:28; 22:16; II Peter 1:19; Daniel 12:3; Numbers 24:17; Matthew 2:2) to Satan, meaning “Adversary” (I Peter 5:8) when usurped by the Devil, and Jehovah to Jesus—Jehovah-Saviour. Brother Branham said, “The translators could never translate it. Its spelled J-v-h-u. It isn’t Jehovah. They couldn’t touch it. They don’t know what it is. Called it Jehovah, but it wasn’t His Name. Look. Every time a victory’s won or something goes on, a name is changed.”
“Look at the days of Abraham. He was first Abram, and never could have that baby until his name was changed to Abraham. And Sarra, S-a-r-a-i could not have nothing but a dead womb until her name was changed to S-a-r-a-h.”
“Jacob” means “supplanter, deceiver,” and that’s what he did. He put sheepskin on hisself and deceived his prophet father to take the birthright. He put poplar sticks in the water, speckled them, and scared the cattle when they was pregnated with their young, to make speckled cattle and sheep. Nothing but a deceiver, but one night he caught ahold of something real. And he knowed it was real, and he stayed with it and held on until he overcome, and his name was changed and called “Israel” meaning “a prince with power before God.” Is that right? Every overcomer. . .”
“Simon was a fisherman; but when his faith caught and knowed that was Jesus, when He told him He was the Messiah and told him who his name was and what his father’s name was, he was overcome and changed from Simon to Peter.”
“Saul, good name, Saul was a king one time in Israel, but Saul didn’t fit an apostle. Might be all right for a king, but not an apostle. So Jesus changed his name from what? From Saul to Paul. Look at the sons of thunder and on down.”
“And Jesus, His Name on earth was Redeemer, Jesus. When He was on earth, He was the Redeemer; that’s true. But when He conquered death and hell, and overcome them, and ascended on high, He received a new Name. That’s the reason they holler the way they do and don’t get nothing; it’ll be revealed in the thunders. See?”
[Do you know that Name? Unless you know that Name you do not have a revelation of the Seven Thunders and Christ’s parousia Coming to we Gentiles].
“Notice, the mystery. He’s coming, riding. . . There’s got to be something to change this Church, you know that. There’s got to be something. Notice. No man knowed but Himself. Now, notice, no man knowed but Hisself.”
“And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his Name was called The Word of God. (Oh, notice). And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He tread the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He had on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 157:3 – 158:8; Revelation 5:9-14; 19:11-16).
Jehovah and Jesus “are the self same Being. God is a Spirit; Jesus is the body that He was veiled in. See? I said, “Like in my home, to my wife I am her husband. And I have a young daughter, Rebekah; I am her father. And I have a grandson, and his name is Paul; I am his grandfather. I am husband, father, and grandfather. And my wife has no claims on me as father or grandfather, she has claims on me alone as husband. And my daughter has no claims on me as husband or grandfather; she is my child. (See)? But yet all these three persons is the same person. (See)? That’s God: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost is just the dispensation claim. God is same, the same God. God changed Himself, changes His form” (The Unveiling of God, p. 9:51).
Jesus was always God, He is the Logos; the Tree of Life in the garden of Eden; Melchisedek; the Word inspired to Isaiah and delivered to Mary by Gabriel; transformed to a foetus in her womb; born as a baby; taken to Egypt as an infant then trained in Nazareth as a carpenter. God was condescending, changing His form through the process of time from Jesus the Logos to reveal Himself in a body of flesh to take my place at Calvary as a sinner and die in my stead to give me the right to the Tree of Life, that I might eat and live forever.
God is Light! “Jesus came from God, and He went back to God” (John 13:3), so that when “the Angel of the Lord came upon Peter, a Light shone in the prison: and He smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell from his hands” (Acts 12:7). He was “a great Light” when He met Paul on the Damascus road, and said, “I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you persecute” (Acts 22:6-8). The same Light that led Israel through the wilderness and appeared to their high priest between the cherubim over the Mercy Seat on the day of Atonement has had His photograph taken many times in this our day. In these last days He has come as “Light in the evening time” (Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:27-28): in the Office of Son of man again He is King of Kings and Judge (John 5:23); in the Millennium He will be Son of David. This Jesus is Jehovah-Saviour, transforming Himself through the process of redemption from the Holy Spirit alone with His thoughts, to their manifestation in the glorified flesh of His family with the glorified Old Testament saints and 144,000 elect Israelites in a redeemed heavens and earth. In this form He will be worshipped by the “saved” throughout eternity.
Like each of His elect Brethren, Jehovah as Jesus, had to overcome the world and the things of the world and “learn obedience by the things which He suffered, pleading in prayer with tears and great agony of soul if it were possible for redemption to be accomplished by some means other than surrendering the life of a kinsman Redeemer. He overcame by voluntarily submitting to the will of God, and proving Himself perfect in this experience, vindicated His calling as a High Priest in the Office of Melchisedek and became the Author or cause of eternal Life for all who obey Him” (Hebrews 5:1-10; 2:10-18; Matthew 26:37-42). The momentary saving from physical death for which He prayed is contrasted with the eternal saving which He bestows upon His people; and the obedience which led Him to submit, is paralleled with the obedience by which enables us to reap the fruits of eternal salvation.
Paul said all prophecy is spoken by God in His prophets, and in these last days He has spoken to us in His Son, who is Himself manifest in flesh: thus it was the Spirit of Christ that spoke through the prophets which is why their actions typed Jesus Christ who is God (John 14:10-11). Hebrews 1:1-4: “As the reflection of the glory of God He bears the very stamp of His nature, being the true expression of His Being (John 1:18), and sustains the universe by His almighty Word. When He had cleansed the heavenly sanctuary of the accumulated sins of the Old Testament elect (John 20:17; Ephesians 4:8-18), He sat down in highest honour equal with the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to the angels or prophets as the Name He has inherited (“Son of God” – Hebrews 1:5-8; Psalm 89:18-36) is more excellent than theirs” (Matthew 28:19; I Corinthians 15:23-28).
“When Jehovah-Saviour raised victorious over death, all the prophets were commanded: Worship My only begotten Son. He is God, the King of Righteousness whose Kingdom is eternal. He laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of His hands. Heavens and earth will change, but Jesus Messiah remains the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 1:5-14; 11:1-3; Genesis 1:1; Isaiah 44:24; John 1:1-3; Colossians 1:13-23; Malachi 3:6; Matthew 24:35; Hebrews 13:8).
In Hebrews 2:1-6 Paul explains how the angels or messengers of God are sent to minister to the elect who are to inherit salvation (Ephesians 4:11-16) as distinct from the non-elect who will be granted into salvation at the White Throne Judgment. “For this reason we MUST give the more earnest heed to the things which were heard when God spoke in His Son, perchance we drift away from the tiepost of New Testament revelation communicated to believers.” (The basis of Paul’s reasoning is that the Law of Moses was established by Divine authority, hence not only obligatory, but its validity was vindicated in earlier history by corresponding retribution against every objective transgression and refusal to hear; and it was ordered not by the Son of God but only by messengers – Hebrews 1:1). “For if the Mosaic Law administered by prophets in the hand of a mediator (Acts 7:53; Galatians 3:19; Psalm 68:17) proved sure and steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward; how shall we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation; which was announced by the Lord Jesus Himself, and confirmed for us by those who heard Him; then it was corroborated by God with signs and wonders, and a great variety of miraculous powers and gifts of the Holy Ghost, distributed according to his own will?”
John 8:56-59 “For the renewed heavens and earth of which we are speaking will not be under the control of angels. For one angel, the prophet David, testified in Psalm 8:5, What is man, that You are so concerned about him? or the Son of man, that You honour Him so highly”?
If you are elect, your personal angel or theophany is the image of your glorified form which God foresaw and foreknew before the foundation of the world when “He predestinated you to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover those He predestinated, He has called, justified, and glorified” (Romans 8:29-30; Psalm 34:7). We are even now glorified because it is established in the mind of God that we shall be glorified, so like Jesus we pray, “Father glorify Me with the glory I had with You before the world was” (John 17:5).
Brother Branham said, “Then after you recognize the very Word of God [for your hour] was Eagle Food, then you left the other thing [the Word for a day gone by]. You’ve then been formed into the living image of the living God. You heard from your theophany. “If this earthly body be dissolved, we have one waiting.” . . . If you’re an attribute of God expressed here on earth, you’ve got a body waiting after you leave this world” (Who is this Melchisedec? p. 17:88-89).
You are reborn when you hear from your theophany or guardian angel in the Presence of God, your Attribute in the Logos or mind of God from eternity (Psalm 34:7). When you make contact by faith through the fourth dimension, you hear your name called from the Lamb’s Book of Life, not Sue or Charley, but the Word for your hour, and recognize your election (John 10:1-5).
Jesus put it in this way, “In a little while, the world will no longer see Me; but you will see Me: because I live eternally, you will be reborn of eternal Life. At that day you will know that I AM in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. He who receives My commandments, and keeps them loves Me: and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him, and will MANIFEST myself to him” (John 14:19-21).
“Jesus was designated by God a High Priest in the similitude of Melchizedek, concerning which we have much to say, which is difficult to explain because you have grown hard of hearing; for whereas by this time you ought to be capable of teaching others, you stand in need of someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s Word all over again. You are like babies who can drink only milk, and not solid food! Of course, anyone who feeds on milk is inexperienced in the Word of righteousness for he is a child. But solid food is for mature persons, for those whose faculties have been trained by practice to distinguish good from evil” (Hebrews 5:10-14).
Here Paul was not referring to Melchisedek, or to Christ, but to the declaration that, like Melchisedek, the Office of Christ is Priest-King (Zechariah 6:12-13). The Divine oath accompanying this Office shows its unparalleled excellency. King David died and the Aaronic priests could not continue by reason of death. Their priesthood was “made after the Law of a carnal commandment,” but His after the power of an endless Life (Hebrews 7:1-3, 15-28) as prophesied by David a thousand years beforehand (Psalm 110:4). Messiah was not of Levi but of Judah, and His priestly office was not conferred by inheritance, but by an oath. The Aaronic priesthood was local, temporary and national, Melchisedek had a universal ministry over Israelite and Gentile as God’s promise to the Gentile Abram embraced both Jew and Gentile. As Mediator between the invisible God and man, Melchisedek first blessed Abram in behalf “of the Most High God, possessor of heaven and earth,” who would make Abram and his descendants joint heirs of the world through the righteousness of faith (Romans 8:17; Galatians 3:16-18, 27-29); next “He blessed the Most High God” in Abram’s behalf for having delivered his enemies into his hand. God made over His gift of the world to Abram’s Seed, and Abram gave all the glory of his victory to the Lord as an earnest of his final universal possession as the incarnate Son of Abraham. As the Son of God Jesus inherits all things in heaven and earth; as the Son of David He is Heir to the throne; as Son of Abraham He is Heir to the royal grant; as Son of man He is Heir to the earth. That is our Kinsman Redeemer.
From Hebrews 7:1-3 we learn that this Melchisedec, was Priest-King of Salem, which means “Peace,” and is Jerusalem which is Above (Galatians 4:26; Hebrews 11:10; 12:22-23), not the Amorite City the Jebusites conquered and renamed Jebus. (See Newsletter #624). Melchisedek met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, blessed him in the Name of El Elyown, possessor of heaven and earth, and served him bread and wine (Genesis 14:18-19). Jesus Christ, the coming Priest-King of new Jerusalem, that will come down from God out of heaven after the slaughter of the kingdoms, is presently the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6; Daniel 2:40-45; Revelation 19:11-20:6; 21:2). Abram tithed to Melchizedek, whose name, melek=king, tsedeq=righteousness or justice, means King of Righteousness (Hebrews 7:2), a tenth of the spoils recovered from the defeated kings. And Jesus who was raised for our justification, is the King of Righteousness (Jeremiah 23:5), and in the new heavens and new earth the kings of the earth, Christ’s Bride, will bring tithes from the nations of the “saved” into the new Jerusalem (Revelation 21:24-26).
Hebrews 7:4-10, “Consider how great this Man was to whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils. The descendants of Levi, who receive the priestly office, are commanded by the Law to take tithes from the people, that is, from their brethren, though they are their relatives: but this Man who is without their genealogy received tithes from Abraham, and blessed him who had the promises. Yet the lesser is blessed by the better. Here tithes are received by mortal men; but in that case by One of whom it is witnessed that he lives. One might even say that Levi himself, who received tithes, paid tithes through Abraham, for he was still in the loins of his forefather, when Melchisedec met him.” This is a direct type of II Corinthians 5:14, for “we are convinced that as One died for all then all the elect of God were accounted dead in Christ on Calvary’s Cross”.
The point is, if one who is eternal and who possesses heaven and earth should receive tithes of Abraham, every Christian is duty bound to pay tithes.
Melchisedek was “without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; made like the Son of God in that He abides priest continually . . . after the power of an endless life, whereas by reason of ill health and death Israel’s high priests maintained office only temporarily.” Melchisedek was not the Son of God but the God of the Son; were He a Son He would have had a father and a mother, beginning and end of life like Jesus. Neither was there a Melchisedek priesthood, which would also have had to have had a beginning and an end. Abram met the invisible Father of the Son of God in a theophany He had created in order to reveal Himself as He would later manifest Himself to the children of Israel in a Pillar of Cloud and Fire, to Abraham, Moses and Jacob in the form of a Man, and to John the Baptist in the Form of a Dove.
God created the woman in Adam (Genesis 5:2), but when He separated them she brought forth life unto death through Satan’s reasoning against the Word and lust, so our Kinsman Redeemer could not come as Melchisedek. He had to be born of woman in order to fulfil the prophecy of Genesis 3:15, “The seed of the woman shall bruise the Serpent’s head, and his seed shall bruise Your heel.” So He dwelt in the Body of His Son, Christ Jesus, and offered His Own blood as a sacrifice for His elect that we might have eternal Life (Romans 6:4-13; II Corinthians 5:14, 19). Melchisedek and Jesus are the selfsame Being, but God is a Spirit whereas Jesus was God’s body, born and fashioned after sin in order pay the wages of sin for whomsoever will receive Him. God would not let that holy Body which He created see corruption and He raised it up to sit at His right hand.
When Abram met Melchisedek after the battle of the kings, Jehovah was manifest in a theophany, but when Abraham met and worshipped Him before the destruction of Sodom He was in the flesh of a created Man who proved He was the Word by discerning the thoughts and intents of Abraham and Sarah’s hearts (Genesis 18; Hebrews 4:12; John 8:56-58). “And Jehovah said, Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of earth shall be blessed through him”?
This was a type of today. Jesus said, “As it was in the days of Lot, so shall it be in the day when Jesus is revealed in the Office of the Son of Man [not Son of God]” (Luke 17:28-30). The world is in a Sodom condition, and once again the Gentile world has been visited by three Messengers. Billy Graham and Oral Roberts ministered a basic salvation Message to the church in Sodom; God veiled Himself behind William Branham, a sinner-saved-by-grace, and revealed “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever” to Abraham’s elect and called out group by discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart. He restored the apostolic faith and finished the mystery of God (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Ephesians 1:9; Revelation 10:7) to Abraham’s seed, “the meek who shall inherit the earth” from God, the “possessor of heaven and earth” when the Prince of Peace receives His Kingdom for we are His joint heirs (Matthew 5:5).
God does not reveal these things to educated ministers and denominational believers whose understanding is based upon intellect, traditions and good works. Either unwilling or unable to empty their minds of errors of unbelief, they are content with an FAQ religion rather than “press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” who said, “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Philippians 3:14; Matthew 4:4). The word sin means to aim for but miss the mark. We are now at the top of the pyramid where there is no Mediator for an FAQ hit-or-miss religion “made after the law of a carnal commandment.” Men of faith live by the Law of love for God’s Word revealed in the solid food of this end-time Message, that is taking us on to perfection by the power of eternal Life, not the doctrine of baptisms, laying on of hands and the milk of excuses that can manifest neither the Token nor the ‘third pull’.
The world sees Jesus as you present Him. Are you written epistles of the Anglican or Methodist church, Freemasonry or the Boy Scout Association, or is the Token of the Life of Christ on display in you through a clear revelation of the present truth? They might be clean-living, moral and just, but they are sinners. Sin is unbelief. You are one or the other, there is no in-between. God cannot reveal Himself to the world church system. He said, “the world will see Me no more but you will see Me. . . If you love the world and the things of the world the love of God is not in you.” God wants separaters, “Be not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion has light with darkness” (II Corinthians 6:14; Revelation 18:4)?
Jesus told the denominational unbelievers, “Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day: and he saw it, and was glad. Then said the Jews, You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham? Jesus replied, Most assuredly I tell you, Before Abraham was, I AM” (John 8:56-58). Of course, He revealed Himself to Abraham as Melchisedek before He was begotten.
Daniel said, “many shall travel, and knowledge shall be increased. The wise will know their God and do exploits, but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand”.
After our victory, Jesus Christ, possessor of heaven and earth, a Priest-King in the similitude of Melchisedek prior to His incarnation, will bless Abraham’s seed with bread and wine at the Wedding Supper in His Father’s Kingdom (Psalm 110:4; Hebrews 5:6; Matthew 26:26-29; Galatians 3:29). When His earthly ministry was fulfilled, Jesus told Judas to do his work of betrayal quickly, “took bread, blessed, broke, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is My body. And He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink all of it; for this is My Blood of the New Testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. I tell you, I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom” (Matthew 26:26-29).
At the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the sky Melchisedek will serve communion to Abraham’s seed. In the meantime, “Fight the good fight of faith and hold tightly to eternal Life which God has given you . . . until the (Gk. ‘epiphaneia’) glorious manifestation of the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ which in His (Gk. ‘kairos’ or opportunity) times (after the Gentile dispensations of grace) He will make known [in the flesh], the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; who alone possesses immortality, dwelling in unapproachable Light which no man has ever seen or can see. To Him belong honour and eternal dominion. Amen” (I Timothy 6:12-16). It is He, the Jesus Christ, the mystery of God revealed, the Lord of Glory. nl628.htm
