Bible Believers’ Newsletter #637

“We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . .”
ISSN 1442-8660

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are pleased you could join us in fellowship.

This week Australia’s glib-tongued internationalist Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, elected with unparalleled popularity two and a half years ago, was replaced unopposed by his Deputy Julia Gillard. He delayed imposing the Illuminati’s climate change HOAX/carbon trading SCAM. Developments in the Gulf of Mexico indicate America’s loud-mouthed president’s participation in an Illuminati false flag operation to force the climate change HOAX/Cap and Trade SCAM, and a military or paramilitary police state. And “truth was no defense” for General McChrystal who was sacked.

If you have not yet requested a copy of our free PowerPoint presentation, “The Second Coming of Christ,” please advise your postal address and we will mail a CD.

If you are new to the Message and unfamiliar with the revelation of the original sin, one of our gifted Brethren has made a ten-minute video on the Serpent’s seed which will open your understanding to this mystery.

This week we conclude our exposition of “The Breach between the Church Ages and the Seals,” which is the exposition of Revelation chapter five. I pray you find it enlightening and the diagrams helpful. In addition to Scripture, we have quoted the words of the Covenant Prophet, William Branham.

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.

Your brother-in-Christ, Anthony Grigor-Scott

 


Satanism in Russian Orthodox Church Moscow Patriarchate

right hand of St. George the VictoriousJune 23, 2010 — During the procession the Orthodox people kissed the “right hand of Satan,” bowed to it as a great relic—the right hand of St. George the Victorious, patron saint of the Russian army. This demonic blasphemy and Satanism had the direct blessing of the ruling bishop of the diocese and the priesthood. Feeling spiritual filth, the Orthodox people of Tver Patriarch Cyril sent a letter outlining their confusion: “If our suspicions are correct, you lured us to worship the idol, Baphomet, and the procession turned into an act of desecration of our land and the Orthodox Faith. . . Zionists are beginning to convince us that rock music can also be Orthodox and to lead people into Christ’s Church, which we definitely deny. This subculture, practicing and preaching the values of Satan, and under its control, cannot at the same time preach Christ and salvation to the souls of men.

Let’s look closely at the gestures of the world of transnational Judeo-Masonic political elite, which prepares the crowning of the Antichrist. All of these representatives of the World Government and their servants are Luciferian. And they openly show it. These include the high priest of Masonic world heresy, the Pope, whom the Patriarch Cyril (Gundyaeva) and his entourage call “His Holiness” and Primate of their sister church.

We have already written about the strange friendship of the clergy of the Russian Orthodox Church Moscow Patriarchate with Russian Freemasons, Knights Templars, who are the real Satanists and privy to the world’s Masonic currents. And although Patriarch Cyril via Vsevolod Chaplin tried to renounce such cooperation, his response only confirmed our worst expectations and assumptions.

Archbishop Victor, did not want to aggravate relations with the Jewish Governor of the Tver region, a Jew-chairman of the Legislative Assembly of the region and a legion of Jewish deputies. The priests of the diocese did not want to aggravate relations with the ruling bishop. Orthodox believers have not found the courage to openly express their anger regarding the blasphemy of Archbishop Victor and priests.

And the result—he gave them all our Lord Jesus Christ! Everyone bowed to the Devil and kissed his detestable hand! . . . bitter fruit of the so-called symphony of Church and State. . . How can the Church work together to support the godless, anti-Christian occupation Kremlin regime that removes Russia and Russian people, both spiritually and physically? . . the absolute majority of Russian government officials are Jews that pay attention to the interests of Orthodox believers in Russia and even sometimes take an active part in organizing social and religious activities, which they tend to deliberately fill with their anti-Christian sense and spirit.

Anti-Semitism has absolutely nothing to do with this. Orthodox people do hate any nation, including the Jews, that is a stupid accusation. We Orthodox Christians pray and kneel before the icons of the apostles . . . and our Lord Himself was from the tribe of David. All Orthodox agree that in Christ there is neither Hellene nor Jew. . . in our renovated temples the Judeo-Masonic six-pointed star appears in abundance. . .” Full story: 3rm.info

Comment: Russia remains occupied since its overthrow by non-Semitic self-styled Jews from the East Side of New York City in 1917. Britain remains occupied since its overthrow by non-Semitic self-styled Jews from the East via Amsterdam in 1688, since then America (note the bloodlines and proclivities of US presidents), Canada, Israel and all other colonies of that sovereign nation state, the ‘City of London,’ have been occupied and never independent as you imagined. Ezekiel 38 and 39 were inspired by God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel—as are Hebrews 6:4-8, and Revelation 18:1-4.


BP, Illusion and False Spill

June 20, 2010 — The ‘disaster’ in the Gulf of Mexico is beyond a false flag; it’s an illusion. . . What BP, Haliburton, and other co-conspirators intentionally drilled into was an Asphalt Volcano. . . an illusion is only as good as it’s weakest link. All scientific evidence on paper coming from the government and corporations is being fudged. In the case of this staged, and controlled event that weak link is the oil, or more specifically the tangible tar that can be collected. As I mentioned much of the oil that has been seen, or noticed is tar rather than heavy crude oil. Out at sea closest to the Deep Horizon site, “shrimpers” have been hired to boom the oil/tar together, and set it ablaze. There are several huge fires right now out in the Gulf. The reason for this is to hide the evidence. . . the microbes, and other organisms that naturally occur from this will multiply. They will not only eat the tar, but the other control released oil that they are pumping into the Gulf. . . dispersant’s are not needed. They are purposely being sprayed by Evergreen Air/CIA to cull the population along the Gulf Coast. . . Full story: shtf411.com youtube.com

Comment: Read the “Full story” as well as the links. Apparent knee jerk reaction motivated by the controlled media could enable BP, Obama, Al Gore, John Kerry, Halliburton, Goldman Sachs and other organs of ‘the City’ to accomplish their Hegelian objectives. Remember, “If something happens in politics, you can bet it was planned that way”.


Obama’s “Regime Change” of Socialist Control

June 17, 2010 — The government political agenda to blame BP is part of a broader goal to “Regime change.” With all the solutions available from the Private Sector and from around the world since day one, Obama has stalled on allowing any of these going forward for the following reasons:

  • To increase the power of government over the private sector. . .
  • Force Obama’s Cap & Trade bill and energy tax through Congress. . .
  • To effect “regime change” toward statism. . .
  • To start the nationalization of oil and other major industries. . .

The Obama Administration and Democrat Congress have no compunction in maligning and degrading BP as this greatly exaggerated oil clean up crisis is their November 9, 2007 regulatory change by stealth to launch “Regime change”.

Operation Gulf Grease

June 20, 2010 — In the days prior to the Gulf drilling operation and ensuing environmental catastrophe, I remember thinking how odd and out of character it was that Barack Obama had announced his approval for more offshore drilling. On April 1, The Washington Post quoted Interior Secretary Ken Salazar as saying the administration had broached “a new direction” in energy policy.

Had Obama lost his mind? Had he had some sort of religious experience? This was a president who campaigned against traditional energy sources in favor of so-called “sustainable” alternatives such as wind, solar, etc. This was a president who banned offshore drilling as one of his first acts in executive office. This was a president who admitted in a meeting with the San Francisco Chronicle in January of 2008 that it was his plan to use a Cap and Trade system to cause energy prices to “necessarily skyrocket” in order to force people to transition to “green” technologies. “Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket,” Obama stated as documented in a YouTube video. . .

Comment: FDR said, “If something happens in politics, you can bet it was planned that way! Connect the dots to the City of London’s latest false flag op.


14 Reasons why the US Government will never have a Balanced Budget Again

The United States government will never have another balanced budget again. Spending on entitlement programs and interest on the national debt are now accelerating at exponential rates. Some time around 2020 they will eat up every single dollar of federal revenue that is brought in before a penny is spent on anything else. . .

#1) Right now, interest on the US national debt and spending on entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare are somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 to 15 percent of GDP. By 2080, they are projected to eat up approximately 50 percent of GDP. . .

#4) According to the Congressional Budget Office, in 2010 the Social Security system will pay out more in benefits than it receives in payroll taxes. That was not supposed to happen until at least 2016.

#5) Back in 1950 each retiree’s Social Security benefit was paid for by 16 workers. Today, each retiree’s Social Security benefit is paid for by approximately 3.3 workers. By 2025 it is projected that there will be approximately two workers for each retiree. . . Full story: endoftheamericandream.com

Busting the Bilderberg Blackout

The following is the transcript of a letter sent to The Washington Post, The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times regarding their participation and their unethical refusal to cover Bilderberg. . . “for years, you would attend secret Bilderberg meetings, gain foreknowledge of Earth-shaking events to come, and keep your crooked promise to report nothing. This is journalistic prostitution, plain and simple.

I, too, have attended Bilderberg for many years . . . Covering Bilderberg has made it possible to write advance stories on wars, the dumping of Margaret Thatcher as prime minister of Britain, fluctuations in the value of the dollar and oil prices, among others. . . The Washington Post, was reporting, repeatedly, that the US invasion of Iraq would come “in the late summer or early fall” of that year. But you both heard Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld [at Bilderberg] say the invasion would not come until the next year—2003. . . In March 1985, The Washington Post carried a brief paragraph in the social section about a meeting David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger had in Moscow with Mikhail Gorbachev, head of the then-Soviet Union. It described the meeting as productive, and that was all. But a check of the Soviet-controlled media revealed enormous developments.

Bilderberg accidentally ended the Cold War . . . The result was good but unintended by Bilderberg. Wars are a source of big bucks to international financiers. . .” Full story: americanfreepress.net


US Stands, and Lies, with Israel

June 19, 2010 — “We stand by Israel,” State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley declared, as he voiced the State Department’s support for Israel’s internal investigation of the attack on the flotilla bound for Gaza. Israel “has the institutions and certainly the capability to conduct a credible, impartial and transparent investigation”. . . Over at the White House they stand by Israel, too. . .

Ha’aretz concluded, the panel is bound to fail both at finding the truth and at appeasing the international community. It will be obvious to anyone watching closely that the investigation is intended to substitute appearance for truth, that the results of the investigation have already been determined in advance. When truth disappears, all that’s left is lies. So, if the US stands with Israel on this matter, as the State Department says, it stands with an Israeli government that seems ready to lie. . . Israeli journalist Amos Harel: “Netanyahu and Barak fought like lions over the status and powers of the committee that has been appointed to examine the naval raid. The narrow mandate accorded the committee, with US agreement, ensures that no harm will befall the two leaders.”

It also insures that little or no harm will befall the BIG LIE with which all Israeli governments have justified their violence against Palestinians and the ensuing cover-ups. And it encourages the Israelis to count on the BIG LIE to justify future violence against the many flotillas yet to come.

The same BIG LIE is part of the reason the US government so often stands, and lies, with Israel—even when that policy obviously runs counter to US interests and alienates the US from the international community, as in the current case of the flotilla investigation. How BIG a part the LIE plays is anyone’s guess. There’s no way to prove it. But it would be dangerous to underestimate it. Full story: truth-out.org

US and UN acting out Sanctions Charade against Iran

June 17, 2010 — The mountain labored for a year and a half, and finally gave birth to a mouse. On June 9, the United Nations Security Council agreed on a fourth round of sanctions against Iran, for its alleged attempt to build nuclear weapons, that will cause Iran no grave inconvenience. But that’s only fair, since the crime of which Iran is accused has not been proven either. In November 2007, all 16 US intelligence agencies contributed to a National Intelligence Estimate saying that Iran had stopped work on nuclear weapons in 2003. . . the United States moved its campaign to isolate and punish Iran for its alleged nuclear weapons ambitions from the IAEA, which will not convict on mere suspicion, to the UN Security Council, a more overtly political body. For the fourth time, the Security Council has bowed to Washington’s demands and imposed more sanctions on Iran—but they certainly will not bring Iran to its knees. . . And last week, for the first time, two of the 15 Security Council members, Brazil and Turkey, voted against the sanctions. (A third, Lebanon, abstained). The US-Israeli obsession with Iran’s alleged nuclear weapons will probably drag on for years, but it is ultimately just a distraction from more serious matters. The weapons aren’t real, and neither are the sanctions.

The Breach between the Church Ages and the Seals – Part II

Amos 3:1-8, “Hear this Word that the Lord has spoken against you, O children of Israel—against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying, You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. How can two walk together unless we are in agreement? Does a lion roar in the forest unless it is about to spring on its prey? Even a young lion growls only when its prey is in sight and cannot escape. Does a trap snap shut without catching a bird? Your punishment is well-deserved. If a trumpet sounds in a city, will the people not be alarmed? Does misfortune occur in a city, unless it results from Jehovah’s punitive righteousness?”

(Amos has threatened the whole nation of Israel with a visitation from their own God, and proves the correctness of his prophecy by these examples, in which he traces with the certainty of strict logic every effect to a cause, and so every misfortune in a city to Jehovah as its author. Supposing Israel’s answer to these questions is “No,” he assures the nation, a prophet and his prophecy signify impending and certain judgment from the Lord. He seeks not to justify himself or his calling, both of which he is assured, but to convince his hearers of the certainty and imminence of punitive judgment. The Lion is the Lord, and Israel is His prey).

“Truly the Lord God will not do anything unless He has first revealed His secret to His servants the prophets. The lion has roared, who will not fear? the Lord God has spoken, I dare not refuse to proclaim His whole counsel”.

God always sends grace with warning and a way of escape before judgment. As He warned natural Israel under the Old Covenant, He has warned Spiritual Israel, the church, under the New Covenant. Brother Branham’s ministry was the last sign promised before the Lord “smites the Earth with a curse” (Malachi 4:5-6; Luke 17:28-30; Romans 11:32; Revelation 22:17-19).

The natural types the Spiritual, and in “Communion,” preached on February 4, 1962, Brother Branham said, “We see that the astronomers are predicting, sometime in this early part or the first part of the month, beginning on the second or the fifth, or somewhere along this month, the Indian astronomers predict the world to blow to pieces. And the American newspapers make fun of it. I do not believe the world’s going to blow to pieces, but I do say it’s wrong to make fun of it. Because something’s fixing to happen one of these days, something similar to that, when the five planets, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus, and so forth comes into their. . . They never have did it. Oh, they claim maybe twenty-five thousand years ago, but who was back there to know it?

I predict that this has a Spiritual application. I believe it’s the coming in of the issue of God, that the great revelation of the Word will be opened during this time. Remember, they claim it was three stars came into the orbit when Jesus was born. And this is five, and five is grace, the number of grace. Three is the number of perfection. Five is the number of grace: J-e-s-u-s, g-r-a-c-e, f-a-i-t-h, so forth, number of grace. [If] God ever sends His power to the church, it’ll be His grace; it won’t be the obedience of the people. And Isaiah said in the 40th chapter, how to cry to Jerusalem, that her warfare was over, yet she was guilty of idolatry, but it was God’s grace that was sending it. [If] God sends anything to us, it’ll be His grace and not our merits.

So it may mean something. I predict that there will be a change. I don’t know what it’ll be, but I believe it’s fixing to happen. We’re right on the eve of it now. And if any man hungers, let him come to Christ. If any man is thirsty, let him come to Christ; He quenches the thirst. He is the Satisfier of all of our thirst and hunger” (Communion, p. 14:74-75).

On February 4-5, 1962, there was an extremely rare grand conjunction of five classical planets, the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter.

In “The End Time Sign Seed,” ministered on March, 19, 1962, the Prophet said, “Now, what’s happened? We see a roar in the paper, across the television out across the nations, where five stars just fell in line with the world. What’s five? A number of grace. Every time those stars come in, something happens on earth. What taken place? Five stars fell in. What was it, a introducing of what?

Since then just look what’s taken place. Germany almost washed off the map. Some of the magi said that the world would burst like a watermelon. Every distressful things prophesied by them for the last days. Look what’s taken place. England, the other day, had a storm that blowed away seventy thousand houses one day. Disasters everywhere. . . California, Los Angeles liked to washed into the ocean. What is it? Beginning of sorrows. Earthquakes has picked up everywhere. Why is it? Five stars come in line: Grace, God’s grace.

What’s happened? An infant church (Hallelujah!), a Bride, infancy, that the power of God has begin to fall on her. She’s taking form: a Bride for this Bridegroom. That three stars meant His perfection of the heavenly Father, of the trinity becoming One on earth among us, God’s offices becoming one office. What happened now? It’s the Church of the living God coming together under the Word of God, and the astronomic heaven is announcing her approach. Amen. Might not believe that, but it’s the Word just the same. Yes, sir.

What’s happening? I might say this: friends, the Church is coming forth. God’s going to have a Church without spot or wrinkle. And she’s predestinated. God said so, He would have it. That makes it right. Who’s a member? I don’t know. I’m trusting to be myself; I’m trusting you are a member. But He’s going to have a Body without spot or wrinkle.

And I believe that these latter day signs and things that’s happening, every one of them is peeling together to show that Christ is ready to come for this Bride. It’s God in His Word made manifest in a man, a perfect man; so is God and His Word coming again, and making Himself manifested in a Bride. Not will do like Eve did, hybreed it to something else, but the unadulterated Word of God will be borned into that Church, and she’ll stand like Jesus Christ did, with His Spirit anointing in His Word. Amen. I believe it’s the announcement now.

The prophet said, “There’ll come a day that won’t be called day or night, but in the evening time it shall be Light.” All you Bible readers know that. What happens? Civilization travels from the east to the west. China is the oldest civilization we have. Civilization begin in the east. It’s went with the sun, traveling west. Where’s it at now? The west coast. If it goes any farther it’s back east again. See what I mean?

The same sun that rises in the east is the same sun that sets in the west, the same s-u-n. And the same S-o-n, Son of God that come to the earth to take a bride on the eastern people. . . And that bride polluted herself like Eve did, like Jehovah’s bride did. That same Son that shines there, that shined there with His same power upon Pentecost, to ripen the seed that He had planted, that same Son is shining now in the western hemisphere. To what? To ripen the seed that’s been planted to bring forth a Bride. The evening Light of the Gospel will bring forth a Bride (Amen!) for the Lord Jesus. There’s some of the evening seed signs, hundreds of them” (The End Time Sign Seed, #62-0319, E-78 – E-80).

This natural conjunction of five stars in 1962 was a sign to prepare us for a Spiritual conjunction of seven stars in 1963: “The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand. . . the seven stars are the angels of the Seven Church Ages” (Revelation 1:20). Speaking of His first Bible, the Gospel in the Stars, “God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for [natural] signs [of divine revelations], and for appointed seasons of meeting, and for days, and years” (Genesis 1:14). “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day and night they keep telling about God, without sound or word, silent in the skies, yet their Message reaches out into all the world” (Psalm 19:1-4; Romans 10:18).

Early one morning in January, 1963, shortly after Brother Branham had relocated to Tucson, he looked from the window of his apartment to a distant spot in the Catalina mountains, and heard the Angel of the Lord say, “Go there.” At about 8.30am he entered the canyon, drove up as far as he could, and set out on foot. He found himself in Sabino Canyon “up where the eagles were flying”; there in the midst of some jagged rocks he felt the Presence of the Lord and knelt down. Praying, holding his hands out to God on top of that mountain, a Sword dropped into his hand with a pearl handle and a blade about three feet long glistened in the Sun. Then a Voice that shook the canyon said, “This is the King’s Sword.” Later the Angel of the Lord revealed It was the Word in the hand. Mercy and new birth were in the hands of His Prophet, and this Sword was his authority to stand in the breach between the Church Ages of PART-Word and the Seals of the fullness of the Word, which is Christ.

Life Magazine May 17, 1963On February 28, the sign of Christ’s impending second or ‘parousia’ Coming manifest over Sunset mountain in Arizona as this Pillar of Cloud in token of God’s acceptance of the Church Age saints (Matthew 24:3; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 1:7). These photographs appeared in Life Magazine, May 17, 1963. Christ’s Mediation was fulfilled, and although His end-time Bride was fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary, possessing only PART-Word and without a Mediator, this unregenerate remnant of the now apostate church could not cross the breach between the sealed Body of the Church Age saints and the Capstone of the fullness of the Word, for “how can two walk together unless they are in agreement in the faith”? Jesus said, “John the Baptist was more than a prophet; he was the messenger of the Covenant who stood right between two dispensations” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 257:5; Luke 7:19-28). And on June 11, 1933, He spoke from heaven while Brother Branham was baptizing five hundred in the Ohio river: “As John the Baptist introduced My first Coming, your Message will introduce My second Coming” (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7). Brother Branham stood in the breach after the Church Ages and delivered the revelation of the Seven Seals which unites us with our Husband, Christ the Word, baptizing us into the Capstone the builders “refused . . . the Chief Corner-Stone in whom all the building fitly framed together grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are builded for a holy habitation through the Spirit” (Psalm 118:22; Ephesians 2:21-22).

Romans 9:33, “As it is written, Behold, I lay in Zion a Stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believes on Him shall not be ashamed.” Today the revelation associated with this Cloud, which is the promised sign of Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming, is a Stumblingstone to the Gentiles, for the Message brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form and the denominations anticipate the return of the glorified Jesus which will not take place until after the consummation (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:1-7; Malachi 4:1-3). About ten days after this sign appeared, on March 8 or 9, before the hunting season ended on March 10, Christ opened the First Seal and the Prophet was caught up into a constellation of the theophanies of seven angels and four living creatures, which are the Gospel of Christ written in the redeemed Bride of all Ages (Ephesians 1:10; II Corinthians 3:2-3; Revelation 4:1).

This was the fulfillment of a vision received on December 22, 1962, and recalled on December 30 in, “Is This the Sign of the End, Sir?” in which he saw a constellation of seven angels in the form of a pyramid (see Newsletter #632). This is the Spiritual constellation typed by the natural conjunction of planets on February 4-5, 1962. The Lord told him to return to his Church in Jeffersonville where He would reveal the mystery of the Seven Seals.

Revelation chapter five describes the breach where our Kinsman Redeemer takes possession of the Book of Redemption, which is the Book of Life that contains the Names of the redeemed whose genealogies trace back to Adam thence to the Logos, which is the eternal mind of God. Revelation 5:1-7, “And I saw in the right hand of the One seated on the Throne a Book written within, and sealed with Seven Seals on the backside. I further saw a strong Angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the Book, and to break its Seals? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the Book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the Book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders said to me, Weep not: you see, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered and proven Himself worthy to open the Book, and to break its Seven Seals. And I saw a Lamb as if it had been sacrificed standing before the elders midway between the Throne and the four living creatures, having seven horns [or Church Ages] and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth [in the Messages of the seven angels [Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley, and William Branham]. And He came and took the Book out of the right hand of Him that sat upon the throne”.

[Zechariah 3:8-10 and 4:10 described the same vision seen five hundred and twenty years before the birth of Jesus. “Pay attention, O high priest Joshua [which means Jesus], you, and the [twenty-four] subordinate priests sitting before you, representative of good things to come. Don’t you see, Joshua represents My Servant [Messiah] the BRANCH. For behold I (Jehovah) have laid the foundation stone [in the presence of Joshua by “the hand of Zerubbabel” (Zechariah 4:10; Ezra 3:8-13), so that your labor in building shall not be vain. But the Stone holds a mystery beyond rebuilding Solomon’s Temple]. Upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving [in the fleshy tables of men’s hearts], says the Lord of hosts, [this is the Stone of Daniel 2:45, the Chief Cornerstone the builders refused; the seven eyes belong to the angels of the seven Church Ages anointed by the seven Spirits of God (I Peter 2:6; Revelation 5:6)]; and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day [when Israel catches the revelation of Christ’s ‘parousia’ Coming and is born-again, thus completing the millennial temple (Isaiah 68:8; Daniel 9:24; Ezekiel 43:1-7; Revelation 11:19)]. After that, says the Lord of hosts, you will live in tranquil prosperity in the millennium where the Kingdom will be restored to Israel” (Micah 4:1-4).

Zechariah 4:10: “Those who have despised the day of small things [God in simplicity] will rejoice when they see the plumb line [of judgment, like the Sword in the hand of Brother Branham] in the hands of Zerubbabel [indicating that the work is going forward to its completion] with those seven; these are the eyes of the Lord, which range through the whole earth.” The sevenfold Spirit of God in the Messages of the angels to the Seven Church Ages sought out His elect.

The seven Spirits of God refer to the continuous ministry of the same Spirit in the lives of seven men with whom God identifies Himself closely (Revelation 1:20). They are His eyes, His lamps reflecting the Light of the S_O_N of God in His absence. In Revelation 4:5 we see they have left the earth and returned before the Throne of God, which is no longer a Throne of Mercy but the Throne of Judgment. Christ’s Mediation is fulfilled, and in Revelation 5:6-7 we see the “Stone” of Zechariah 3:9 with the sevenfold Spirit of God played the role of the bloody Lamb, and this act He plays the Lion of the tribe of Judah, and takes the Book from the right hand of the One seated on the Throne.

Brother Branham said, “The Seven-sealed Book is revealed at the time of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10: “And I saw another mighty Angel come down from heaven, clothed with a Cloud: and a rainbow was upon His head”.

“If you notice that’s Christ, ’cause He in the Old Testament was called the Angel of the Covenant, and He’s directly coming to the Jews [he means Israelites] now, for the Church is finished. See? All right.” [He will come directly to Israel as He has come to Christ’s end-time Bride, in the ‘parousia’ of fullness of His Word, not PART-Word as He came to the Church Age saints].

“. . . and His face. . . as it were the sun, and His feet as pillars of fire: You remember that Angel in Revelations 1? Same thing. Angel is a messenger, and He’s a Messenger to Israel. See? The Church has been raptured. See? Now, or fixing to be raptured. He comes for His Church. . . ”

“Now, watch. “And He had in His hand a little Book open: and He set His right foot [in judgment] upon the [beast of the] sea [Papal Rome], and His left foot [in judgment] upon the [beast of the] earth [the United States of America]. And He cried with a loud Voice, as when a lion roareth: . . . (We know He is the Lion of the tribe of Juda. Over here He’s a Lamb, but here He’s a Lion. See?). . . and when He had cried, Seven Thunders uttered their voices. (Now, John was commissioned to write what he saw, so the apostle and prophet picked up his pen to write it).”

The Book that was closed in Revelation five is open in Revelation ten. Christ could not claim the Book of Redemption until His mediation for the Church Age saints was fulfilled. Its mystery was made known after the Lamb opened the Seals and revealed them to His Prophet.

“And when the Seven Thunders had uttered their Voices, I was about to write: and I heard a Voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the Seven Thunders uttered, and write them not. (Now, that’s what we don’t know. That’s yet to be revealed; it’s not in Holy Script, what them thunders say). [However, the mysteries of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10 are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals so we do know them (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 327:1)].

“And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up His hands to heaven, (Now, listen). And sware by Him that liveth for ever and ever, who created the heavens, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things. . . therein are, and. . . there should be time no longer: (Watch, here’s a verse I want to get to).” [You will notice Revelation 10:6 and 5:13 are the same scene where the redeemed are worshipping Jesus Christ as Creator and Redeemer because there will be no further tarrying for intercession. Brother Branham said, Revelation 5:7 “is exactly the breaking of those Seals taking place. We get in that half-hour silence, just after this” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 109:6-7)].

“But in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He has [already] declared to His servants the prophets” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 72:5 – 73:6).

After the dispensations of PART-Word have been fulfilled, “heaven will be silent for a short space of time” because the Word spoken by the mouth of all of God’s holy prophets since the world began has been delivered, and the revelation of the Seal brings Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:1-7; 16:15).

The Prophet said, “And when the Seals are broke and the mystery is revealed, down comes the Angel, the Messenger, Christ, setting His foot upon the land and upon the sea with a rainbow over His head. Now remember, this seventh angel is on earth at the time of this Coming. . . Now, we see that this seven-sealed Book now, is the mystery of redemption. It’s a Book of Redemption from God. Now, all the mysteries at this time should be finished at the sounding of this messenger. Now, here’s the angel on earth, and another Angel, mighty Messenger come down. See, this angel was a earthly angel, messenger. But here comes One down from heaven: a rainbow, covenant. See? Only Christ, it could be; just exactly like it was in Revelations first chapter, standing in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks with a rainbow to look upon as jasper and sardius stone” (ibid. p. 74:2, 4; Revelation 1:13-16; 10:1-2).

“Ephesians 4:30: “Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed until the day of your redemption.” Hold that Word “redemption,” until the day that the Book of Redemption has been revealed, and the Redeemer comes to claim His possession nothing can do it. See? Don’t grieve It. Say [and] do things that pleases God, for the Book is sealed now and you are sealed. The Holy Spirit Itself is the Seal. . . Seal signifies a finished work. And when the Seventh Seal is broken, the mystery of God that’s sealed in these mysterious seals is finished; until the day that Seal is broken, then it’s revealed what’s on the inside of it. . .”

Another thing a seal signifies is ownership. See? The Seal has a mark on it, shows ownership. When you are bought by the Blood of Jesus Christ and sealed by the Holy Ghost, you no longer belong to the world or anything pertaining to the world. You are owned by God. And another thing is: a Seal is a security. Seal means you are secured. Now, you that don’t believe in eternal security, I don’t know, but now. . . But a Seal signifies security to its destination. Woe unto that guy that would try to break that Seal. And the Holy Spirit Seal cannot be broken. You all have heard me say that people said, “The devil made me do this.” No, no, the devil didn’t do it. You just wasn’t sealed in, so then (You see?), ’cause when you’re sealed in, he’s sealed out. See? (ibid. p. 78:3 – 79:1).

Diagram showing Christ's BrideSo redemption was over some ten days before Christ took the Book on March 8-9, 1963 (Ephesians 4:30; Revelation 5:7), leaving all who were unsealed in the breach above the Laodicean division of the Body, the gap marked Holy Spirit that separates the sealed Body of the Church Age saints from the Capstone. The spirit of Laodicea rules all outside of Christ, including church folk, who are materially “rich and increased with goods, and have need of nothing yet wretched and pitiable, spiritually bankrupt, blind to the faith, naked of the Blood and know it not” (Revelation 3:17). The only way out of Laodicea and into Christ in this present day is via a clear revelation of Brother Branham’s Message. Believe me, all other roads lead to Rome (Revelation 13:1-8, 15-18). You can only cross the breach and enter into Christ, the Capstone, through this end-time Message.

As Lion of the tribe of Judah, Christ is Son of man, King of Kings and Judge. Here He opens the Seals, and reveals them in Chapter six to call His end-time Bride, and indicts rejecters of this Message for judgment.

Brother Branham said, “But you see, that sleeping virgin ain’t receiving nothing anyhow. That’s right. And remember, while they went to try to buy oil. . . You remember the Scriptures doesn’t say they got it. But while they were out trying to buy it, there come a sound. What happened? All those virgins that slept rose, and trimmed their lamps, and went in to the supper (is that right?), and the rest was left for the tribulation period (Right?), weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth. That’s the church, not the Bride, the church. The Bride went in. There’s a whole difference between the church and the Bride. Yes, sir. Went in to the wedding supper. . . Oh, notice, boys.

The Seals was broke. Why? In the last Church Age to reveal these truths. Why? The Lamb broke the Seals and revealed them to His church in order to collect His subjects for His Kingdom, His Bride. See? Oh, my. He wants to bring His subjects to Him now.

What is it? Out of the dust of the earth, out of the bottom of the sea, out of the pits, out of everywhere and every place; out of the regions of the dark, out of paradise, wherever they may be, He will call and they’ll answer. Amen. Amen. He will call, and they’ll answer.

He come to get His subjects. He revealed His secrets, and they saw it; and “time is no more” at that time. Time has run out; it’s finished. All right” . . . And He calls for His Queen to come stand by His side. “Know ye not the saints shall judge the earth?”

Daniel said the judgment was set, and the books [of sinners] were opened, and ten thousands times ten thousands of thousands ministered to Him: King and Queen. And then another Book was opened, which is the Book of Life. That’s for the church. And the Queen and the King stood there” (ibid. p. 106:3 – 107:3).

Diagram showing the finished BrideThe pyramid is capped by the Seven Thunders (Is This the Sign of the End, Sir? p. 47:2-3). A remarkable passage in the Book of Job compares Earth to a building, and the Lord questions, “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me if you have this insight. Who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched out the builder’s line upon it? Upon what were its foundations sunk? Or who laid its cornerstone, as the morning stars sang together, and all the Sons of God shouted for joy?” (Job 38:4-7).

These questions are answered by the Scriptures beneath our diagram. The Lord was alluding to the Body of Christ, “A holy Temple in the Lord, in whom you also are builded for a holy habitation through the Spirit” (Ephesians 2:20-22). It is represented by God’s second Bible, the Great Pyramid built by Enoch before the Flood, and which was familiar to Job. The Lord distinguished its “foundations” from its “Cornerstone,” and it was not until the building was completed by the laying of the “Chief Cornerstone” or Capstone by mysteries of the Seven Thunders, which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals, that the “Sons of God shouted for joy” (The Rejected King, p. 9:66; Adoption, Part IV, p. 129:177).

Brother Branham said, “When all the mysteries of the Church Age was finished, when all the mysteries of the plans of redemption, them Seven Seals was opened—right immediately after this now look, it’s time for everything in heaven and everything on earth to worship God” (Revelation, Chapter Five, Part II, p. 784:211; The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 558:1):

Revelation 5:8-14, “And when He had taken the Book, the four living creatures and twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the Book, and to open the Seals: for you were slain, and have redeemed us to God by your blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; and have made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. And I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and everything in them, exclaiming, To the One seated on the Throne, and to the Lamb be blessing and honour and glory and dominion for ever and ever. And the four living creatures, [that symbolize the Bride of All Ages] said, Amen, and the twenty-four elders fell down and worshipped Him”.

In the heavenly dimension, the theophanies of the saints “built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets” crowned Him King of kings. And in this space-time dimension we who are alive and have remained to the ‘parousia’ Coming of the Lord crown Him when we see the Capstone engraved with the seven eyes in the constellation of seven angels that we look away to Jesus by the revelation of the Seven Seals. nl637.htm

Bilderberg 2010

June 9, 2010 — What happens in Bilderberg stays in Bilderberg. Except for policy. That gets everywhere.

Just this weekend the former Nato secretary general, Willy Claes (Bilderberg 1994) [who was obliged to resign because a corruption scandal], said on Belgian radio that at Bilderberg each participant is given a report and they are “considered to use this report in setting their policies in the environments they affect.” His remark reveals the Bilderberg dynamic: the flowing of policy out from Bilderberg and into the world, from power towards political implementation. From the steering committee to the guest members.

Power Elite tree of the knowledge of good and evil[Bilderberg Agenda 2010: Financial Reform, Security, Cyber Technology, Energy, Pakistan, Afghanistan, World Food Problem, Global Cooling, Social Networking, Medical Science, EU-US relations. Approximately 130 participants guardian.co.uk]. But never mind what the agenda of Bilderberg might be (and when one says “Bilderberg”, one is really talking about its steering committee of 33 people [surely not all 33o Masons]). Never mind where you stand on the project for a united Europe, or the usefulness of a global currency. Never mind what they’re talking about. Never mind when the attack on Iran is scheduled. Simply understand that a very important, seriously managed conference has just taken place.

CONFIRMED: Destruction of 9-11 Options Trading Documents

June 15, 2010 — Explosive new information has broken with regard to destruction of pre-9/11 options trading records. Just prior to 9/11, someone (or group of people) bought large amounts of put options on various airline stocks. Put options gain in value when a stock goes down. The airline stocks went down after 9/11. . . At least one Wall Street firm reported their suspicions about this activity to the SEC shortly after the attack. . .

David Callahan—executive editor of SmartCEO—submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to the SEC regarding the pre-9/11 put options. Here’s how the SEC replied:

“This letter is in response to your request seeking access to and copies of the documentary evidence referred to in footnote 130 of Chapter 5 of the September 11 (9/11) Commission Report. . . We have been advised that the potentially responsive records have been destroyed”. Full story: zerohedge.com economicpolicyjournal.com


Secrets of the Federal Reserve: The London Connection

This is the only book which has been burned in Germany since World War II.

Eustace Mullins wrote: “My original book had traced and named the shadowy figures in the United States who planned the Federal Reserve Act. I now discovered that the men whom I exposed in 1952 as the shadowy figures behind the operation of the Federal Reserve System were themselves shadows, the American fronts for the unknown figures who became known as the “London Connection.” I found that notwithstanding our successes in the Wars of Independence of 1812 against England, we remained an economic and financial colony of Great Britain. For the first time, we located the original stockholders of the Federal Reserve Banks and traced their parent companies to the London Connection. . .

I have sounded the toxin that the Federal Reserve System is not Federal; it has no reserves; and it is not a system at all, but rather, a criminal syndicate. From November, 1910, when the conspirators met on Jekyll Island, Georgia, to the present time, the machinations of the Federal Reserve bankers have been shrouded in secrecy. Today, that secrecy has cost the American people a three trillion dollar debt, with annual interest payments to these bankers amounting to some three hundred billion dollars per year, sums which stagger the imagination, and which in themselves are ultimately unpayable. Officials of the Federal Reserve System routinely issue remonstrances to the public, much as the Hindu fakir pipes an insistent tune to the dazed cobra which sways its head before him, not to resolve the situation, but to prevent it from striking him. . .

American history in the twentieth century has recorded the amazing achievements of the Federal Reserve bankers. First, the outbreak of World War I, which was made possible by the funds available from the new central bank of the United States. Second, the Agricultural Depression of 1920. Third, the Black Friday Crash on Wall Street of October, 1929 and the ensuing Great Depression. Fourth, World War II. Fifth, the conversion of the assets of the United States and its citizens from real property to paper assets from 1945 to the present, transforming a victorious America and foremost world power in 1945 to the world’s largest debtor nation in 1990. Today, this nation lies in economic ruins, devastated and destitute, in much the same dire straits in which Germany and Japan found themselves in 1945. Will Americans act to rebuild our nation, as Germany and Japan have done when they faced the identical conditions which we now face–or will we continue to be enslaved by the Babylonian debt money system which was set up by the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 to complete our total destruction? . .

US nears Racial Milestone

June 11, 2010 — Whites are on the verge of becoming a minority among newborn children in the US, marking a demographic shift that is already reshaping the nation’s politics and economy. . . The Census reported Thursday that nonwhite minorities accounted for 48.6% of the children born in the US between July 2008 and July 2009, gaining ground from 46.8% two years earlier. The trajectory suggests that minority births will soon eclipse births of whites of European ancestry.

“The question is just when,” said Kenneth Johnson, senior demographer at the Carsey Institute at the University of New Hampshire. He guesses the demographic milestone will be crossed in the next few years, and could happen as early as 2011. . . Full story: wsj.com

Comment: Speaking before a special meeting of the Emergency Council of European Rabbis in Budapest on January 12, 1952, Rabbi Emanuel Rabinovich told delegates, “. . . I can state with assurance that the last generation of white children is now being born. . .” (Jews reveal their plans for the world). A high percentage of Adam’s race of all colours are born of incest or adultery, and therefore not in the election (Deuteronomy 23:2).


Theologian: Methodist Seminary is ‘abdicating’ Christianity

June 11, 2010 — Claremont School of Theology, located in Southern California, “is basically abdicating the faith,” said Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky. . .

Claremont’s president, the Rev. Jerry Campbell, announced Wednesday that the seminary will be partnering with Jewish and Islamic schools to offer clerical training to students of various faiths. Students will be trained in their own religious traditions as well as gain understanding of other faiths through shared classes with the Academy for Jewish Religion and the Islamic Center of Southern California. Eventually, the seminary plans to expand its training to include Hinduism and Buddhism, among others. . . Full story: christianpost.com

Comment: Faith is “the mind of God in you.” God is not “double-minded” and as there is one faith, “How can two walk together, unless they agree in His Word” (Amos 3:3)?


The Breach between the Church Ages and the Seals – Part I

Revelation chapter five is actually the Breach between the Church Ages and the Seals. The Church goes up after Revelation chapter three and does not return until the nineteenth chapter. Therefore, the Church misses the tribulation (William Branham, The Revelation of the Seven Seals p. 70:5).

Brother Branham said, “John [the Baptist’s] coming was predicted in the Scripture. . . Remember, the last Book of the Old Testament spoke that Elijah would come to the children of Israel before the showing of the Messiah.”

“Are you ready? The last Book in the Bible, Revelation, shows us that there will be a return of him in the last days to the Gentile church. Signs. How they miss it. He’s prophesied to come again just before the great and the second coming of the Lord. In Malachi the fourth chapter and Revelation also the third chapter tells us that he will be here in the last days, that same one that’ll stand in the breach for the people with a little flock that God will give him. He’ll come in the last days. God said so. He’ll be a sign to this Gentile nation that her time is no more.”

“Remember, when he appears on the scene, the time is at hand. Let’s pray for God to send him. Time is at hand. As soon as his ministry was finished, Messiah showed Himself” (Revelation 22:10; A True Sign that’s Overlooked, p. 6:179-181).

The close of the Seven Church Ages in Revelation 3:21 marked the conclusion of Christ’s Mediation and Redemption, and because His end-time Bride was fully redeemed on Calvary in Revelation 4:1, John represented the whole Body caught up to heaven. In another type He represents Christ’s end-time Bride to whom the Door in heaven is revealed still open (in contrast to the door closed against Him on Earth), and we are caught up in the Spirit in response to the heavenly Voice: “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after the Church Ages.” We see a Throne standing in heaven and One seated thereon who receives praise, honour and thanksgiving from the twenty-four elders (Israel’s Patriarchs and our twelve apostles), who declare, “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and dominion: for You have created all things, and by your will they were created and called into being.” In Revelation 5:1 “We also see in the right hand of the One seated on the Throne a Book written within and sealed with Seven Seals on the backside”

“According to Jesus, Himself, who wrote the Revelation, He is set down WITH the Father. The Spirit in Paul (which Spirit is the Spirit of Christ, for that is the Spirit of Prophecy whereby the Word comes) says He is set down at the RIGHT HAND of God. But when John looked he saw only “ONE” upon the throne. And it was not until Revelation 5:6-8 (which follows Revelation 4:2-3 in sequence of time) that we see the “Lamb” taking the Book from “HIM” that sat on the throne, as indicated in Revelation 4:2-3 and 9-10. What is it? It is the mystery of “ONE GOD.” He (Jesus), came out from God, became manifested in flesh, died and rose again, and returned to the “Bosom of the Father.” As John said, “The only begotten Son Which is IN the bosom of the Father, He hath declared Him” (John 1:18). It was now time for God (Messiah) to come back to claim His Bride and then present Himself (make Himself known) to Israel. Thus we see God again stepping forth to assume a physical relationship to man as the “Son of David, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and Bridegroom of the Gentile Bride.” It is NOT “Two” Gods, but simply ONE GOD manifesting His mighty triune offices and titles” (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 22).

Brother Branham said, “Remember, he hadn’t seen Him up to this time. Why? He was seated on a throne in there, God’s throne. He was on the inside of the sanctuary. He hadn’t seen Him till this time, so John was expecting to see a Lion come forth, but he saw a Lamb” (Revelation, Chapter 5, Part I, p. 740:144).

These verses confused the natural-minded men who introduced the Trinity doctrine into Christendom because they could only explain Spiritual things intellectually within the parameters of their pagan Babylonian Roman and Judaic background, and the ghosts of spurious oneness, twoness and threeness beliefs haunt the nominal churches of Christendom. Sincere men who are not Spiritual take the allegory of God’s Word literally, and much of the Book of Revelation is allegorical, its meanings hidden in Old Testament symbols—juxtaposed shadows and types whose teachings, although complimentary, must not be conflated but viewed as distinct acts and scenes of one play. It is expressing redemption’s story in human terms so that we may understand how God, who is not a man (Numbers 23:19), can meet the requirements of His Own Law and pay sin’s price in death as our Kinsman Redeemer when as a Spirit He cannot die, is not our Kinsman, and has no blood to display on the Mercy Seat as the evidence of an atonement.

God being a Saviour, it was necessary that He predestinate a man who would require salvation in order to give Himself reason and purpose of being. He would be unjust were He to make man fall, so He placed him on free moral agency knowing he would fall, knowing he would be lost, yet “He was not willing that anyone should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (II Peter 3:9), but man had to fall in order that God might display His attributes to all men as Redeemer and Saviour, a God of justice and mercy. Sickness and poverty came into the world that He might reveal His attributes as Healer and Provider, so the great Redeemer became our Saviour, and all God’s goodness dwelleth in Him.

As we study Revelation four and five, which are a parenthesis between chapters three and six, we must not conflate allegories or mix metaphors. For example Christ is seated on the Throne according to Matthew 28:18, I Corinthians 15:20-25 and Hebrews 1:3; in Revelation 1:11-20 He is standing in the midst of the seven lampstands, while in Revelation 5:6 He advances from the altar of sacrifice in the outer court where has lain for two thousand years, yet for the same period He has stood in the Sanctuary as High Priest. We must not attempt to choreograph this medley of roles literally. The One person of God is playing different roles to portray His plan of redemption in terms men can assimilate as foreshadowed under the Law.

According to John 1:18, “No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the intimate Presence of the Father, has revealed Him in visible manifestation whereby He can be seen and made known”.

John 12:44-45, “Jesus cried and said, He who believes in Me, believes not in Me, but in Him that sent Me. And he who sees Me sees Him who sent Me”.

John 14:6-11, “Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and eternal Life: no man comes to the Father, but through Me [the propitiation or Mercy Seat]. Had you known who I am, you would have known My Father also: henceforth you know Him and have seen Him.”

“Philip said, Lord, show us the Father, and we shall be satisfied.”

“Jesus replied, Have I been with you so long, and yet you do not know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, Show us the Father? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The Words that I say to you I speak not on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does His works. Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me: or else believe Me on account of the works themselves”.

Quoting Revelation 3:14, Brother Branham said, “The beginning of the creation of God.” That is Who the Lord Jesus says He is. But those words don’t mean exactly as they sound to us. Just taking them the way they sound has made some people (in fact multitudes of people) get the idea that Jesus was the first creation of God, making Him lower than Godhead. Then this first creation created all the rest of the universe and whatsoever it contains. But that is not right. You know that doesn’t line up with the rest of the Bible. The words are, “He is the BEGINNER or AUTHOR of the creation of God.” Now we know for a surety that Jesus is God, very God. He is the Creator. John 1:3, “All things were made by Him, and without Him was not any thing made that was made.” He is the One of Whom it is said, Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Also it says in Exodus 20:11, “For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day.” See, there is no doubt that He is the Creator. He was the Creator of a FINISHED PHYSICAL CREATION.”

“Surely we can see what these words mean now. To have any other interpretation would mean that God created God. How could God be created when He, Himself, is the Creator?”

“But now He is standing in the midst of the Church. As He stands there revealing Who He is in this last Age, He calls Himself the “Author of the creation of God.” This is ANOTHER CREATION. This has to do with the Church. This is a special designation of Himself. He is the CREATOR of that church. The heavenly Bridegroom created His own Bride. As the Spirit of God, He came down and created in the virgin Mary the cells from which His body was born. I want to repeat that. He created the very cells in the womb of Mary for that body. It was not enough for the Holy Spirit to simply give life to a human ovum supplied by Mary: That would have been sinful mankind producing a body. That would not have produced the “Last Adam.” Of Him it was said “Lo a body hast Thou (Father) prepared for Me.” God (not Mary) provided that body. Mary was the human incubator and she carried that Holy Child and brought Him to birth. It was a God-man. He was the Son of God. He was of the NEW creation. Man and God met and joined; He was the first of this new race. He is the head of this new race. Colossians 1:18, “And He is the Head of the Body, the Church: Who is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; that in all things He might have the pre-eminence.” II Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away, behold all things are become new.” There you can see that though man was of the OLD ORDER or creation, now in UNION WITH CHRIST, he has become the NEW CREATION of God. Ephesians 2:10, “For we are His workmanship CREATED IN UNION WITH CHRIST JESUS unto good works.” Ephesians 4:24, “And that ye put on the NEW MAN which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” This New Creation is not the old creation made over, or it could not be called a new creation. This is exactly what it says it is, “NEW CREATION”. It is another creation, distinct from the old one. No longer is He dealing by ways of the flesh. That was how He dealt with Israel. He chose Abraham, and of Abraham’s issue through the godly Isaac line. But now out of every kindred, tribe and nation He has purposed a new creation. He is the first of that creation. He was God created in the form of man. Now by His Spirit He is creating many Sons unto Himself. God the creator, creating Himself a part of His creation.”

“This is the true revelation of God. This was His purpose. This purpose took form through election. That is why He could look right down to the last age when all would be over and see Himself still in the midst of the church, as author of this New Creation of God. His Sovereign power brought it to pass. By His own decree He elected the members of this New Creation. He predestinated them to the adoption of children according to the good pleasure of His will. By His omniscience and omnipotence He brought it to pass. How else could He know that He would be standing in the midst of the church receiving glory from His brethren if He did not make sure? All things He knew, and all things He worked out according to what He knew in order that His purpose and good pleasure be brought to pass” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 36:2-4).

“Christ Jesus is the [visible] image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature [in the new creation]”  (Colossians 1:15). “The Word of Life was from the beginning; we have heard Him, we have seen Him with our eyes, and our hands have handled and touched Him. The Life was manifested, and we have seen, and are witnessing and announcing to you the eternal Life which was with the Father and was manifest to us” (I John 1:1-2).

“The Book in the right hand of the One seated on the Throne, written within and sealed on the back with Seven Seals” is the Title Deed to the dominion Adam had forfeited to Satan. It belonged to God, “the possessor of heaven and earth,” so Satan’s tenure expired the day our Kinsman Redeemer, the Lamb of God, claimed redemption’s rights and became the Lion of the tribe of Judah. Whereas we may see two or three characters, in reality this is a play in which, as we have shown, One God is playing multiple characters to explain the heavenly transaction in a manner familiar to earthlings.

“The Book is a scroll written within and sealed on the backside with Seven Seals.” John is distinguishing the written Word inside the Book—veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols—from the spoken Word of the Voices of the Seven Thunders he was forbidden to write. It was not a cerise ribbon and wax but these unwritten mysteries outside the scroll that bound our understanding of the written Word within but which have been opened by the “Shout” of Brother Branham’s Message to expound the written Words and call the virgin out from Rome and her apostate (once) Protestant daughter churches to meet the Bridegroom in the unity of the faith (Revelation 10:4, 7; Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Ephesians 4:13).

Revelation 5:2-5, “I further saw a strong Angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the Book, and to break its Seals? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the Book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the Book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders said to me, Weep not: you see, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered and proven Himself worthy to open the Book, and to break its Seven Seals”.

No man was worthy, but a Lamb-like character had conquered, not by might nor by power, but by submission to the Spirit of God (Zechariah 4:6-7; Matthew 26:42). John expected to see a Lamb, but he saw a Lion. Brother Branham said, “His Mediatorial work was done. He was quit being the Mediator at the end of the Church Age to become the Lion of the tribe of Juda; His mediator work was done. And He was to become a Lion, which was the Judge. . . when He took the Book out of the hand . . . intercession in the Church Age was finished, now He becomes the Redeemer” (Revelation Chapter Five, Part II, p. 770:118, 135). He is no longer in the office of Son of God and Mediator, but Son of man and Judge.

Under God’s Law of redemption a near kinsman who was worthy, willing, and able could pay redemption’s price (Leviticus 25), which was in this case “life for life” . . . For God said, In the day that you partake of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you will surely die” (Genesis 2:17).

The Book of Ruth records how Naomi, her husband and their two sons left Israel to sojourn in the land of Moab in a time of famine. Her husband died and her sons married Moabite women. After ten years they also died and Naomi determined to return to Judah. Her daughter-in-law Ruth accompanied her, and began gleaning after the reapers in the field of Boaz, a wealthy kinsman of Naomi’s deceased husband and a type of Christ. Boaz admired the character of the Moabitess, but the only way he could take the beautiful Gentile to wife was to redeem what his brother, Elimelech, had lost. He asked their other brother who was closer if he would redeem it, but he could not and he plucked off his sandal to validate the transaction of redemption and exchange. Boaz then addressed the ten elders and all the people in the gate, “You are witnesses this day that I have bought from Naomi all that belonged to Elimelech, Malon and Chilion, and besides, I acquire as my wife Ruth the Moabitess, the widow of Mahlon, to perpetuate the name of the dead in his inheritance, that it shall not be lost from among his brothers and from the gate of his home town”.

Naomi types Israel whom Christ had to redeem before He could marry His “Ruth,” the Gentile Church. This is a stumbling block for British Israel and so-called Christian Identity believers who imagine Christ is marrying Semitic Israel of the flesh when He is marrying predominantly non-Semitic Israel of the Spirit. As with the Church, there were four stages in Ruth’s experience. First was her decision whether to follow her mother-in-law and worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, a type of justification by grace through faith. Then [without “the preparation of the Gospel of peace”] she had to serve barefoot gleaning [the revealed Word of doctrine] behind the reapers, a type of sanctification. tribulum or threshing board in IsraelIn Hebrew, holiness means to be separated to the Lord: the vessels of ministry in God’s Temple were washed and set apart for holy service, typing Christ’s Bride (Ephesians 5:26). In ancient Israel, sanctification was signified by loosing a grain from its outer husk and chaff. A ‘tribulum’ or threshing board with blades of flint or iron fixed to its underside was drawn over the stalks of wheat to separate the grain from the chaff. This was followed by winnowing on a high place where both grain and chaff are tossed into the wind. The chaff is blown away and the grain is gathered into the garner.

Then Ruth rested while Boaz went away to do the work of a kinsman Redeemer, typing the new birth or baptism with the Holy Ghost “which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory” (Ephesians 1:14). Our Kinsman Redeemer said, “I am going away to prepare a place for you” (John 14:2-3). With the earnest of our inheritance we are resting, knowing we have passed from death unto Life. After waiting for Boaz to return from the gate, Ruth was rewarded, and Jesus said, “When everything is ready, then I will come again and take you to Myself; that you may always be with Me where I am.” He has come back “as a thief in the night.” The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Him back to earth in W_O_R_D form (I Corinthians 13:10) to reward His end-time Bride with rapturing revelation.

the Throne guards of ChristRevelation 5:6-10, “And I saw a Lamb as if it had been sacrificed standing before the elders midway between the Throne and the four living creatures, having seven horns [or Church Ages] and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth [in the Messages of the seven angels]. And He came and took the Book out of the right hand of Him that sat upon the throne. And when He had taken the Book, the four living creatures [that is the Bride of All Ages] and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the Book, and to open its Seals, for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your Blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation, and made us kings and priests to our God: and we shall reign on the Earth”.

You are represented by the Living Creature with the face of a flying Eagle. When you recognize the Word for your Age, you have heard your name called from the Lamb’s Book of Life (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 473:3-4), and have the assurance you were redeemed in Christ when He was crucified in God’s foreknowledge from the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8). In other words, “You heard from your theophany” (Who is This Melchisedec? p. 17:88). Past, present and future co-exist in different dimensions, thus the rapture is settled: “Those God foreknow He predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He did predestinate, He also called: and whom He called, He also justified: and whom He justified, them He also glorified. . . [with this assurance you have rest, knowing that] neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate you from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus your Lord . . . But make your calling and election sure by studying to show yourself approved of God, a workman who need not be ashamed, by rightly dividing the Word of Truth” (Romans 8:29-30, 38-39; II Timothy 2:15).

Revelation 5:11-14, “And I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels surrounding the throne and the living creatures and the elders [indicated by the circle]: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honour and glory and blessing. And I heard every creature in heaven and on the Earth and under the Earth and on the sea, and everything in them, saying, To Him that sits on the Throne, and to the Lamb be blessing and honour and glory and power for ever and ever. And the four living creatures said, Amen. And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshipped”.

Christ has taken the Title Deed to His and our inheritance, it is time for all creation to worship Him. In chapter six the living creatures (or Bride under each of the four Seals of redemption) will exclaim in great anticipation, “Come,” as He breaks the Seal under which they were born-again to reveal how they were redeemed in each Church Age.

In Revelation chapter four we saw that Redemption is over; there being no more Blood on the Mercy Seat it has become a Judgment Seat. In the Old Testament when the blood was removed there was a cleansing of the Sanctuary. But this Earth is God’s footstool or Judgment Seat, and since we are the Blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Ghost, our presence makes Earth a Mercy Seat, withholding God’s judgment (William Branham, Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed, p. 57:434; Revelation 12:8; 15:8). We are the generation that will not see death.

When it comes time for the cleansing of this sanctuary, Earth will go into convulsions with great spasms of earthquakes as it was at Christ’s resurrection. After three days He resurrected and ascended to clean the heavenly sanctuary of the sins of the Old Testament saints with His precious Blood, then He descended and led them captive of eternal Life. From Calvary to His ascension the faith of the believers was on trial, a type of the soon-coming manifestation of the Sons of God, but on the fiftieth day or jubilee their past sins were remitted and they were restored to grace from “the curse of the Law” and baptized with the Holy Spirit and Fire. Satan could not hold God’s people any longer: the Kinsman Redeemer had paid the price and marked His Own.

The Capstone Bride is living in the antitype of the fiftieth day of the holy convocation of the Pentecostal feast. Unlike the saints of the Sardis, Philadelphian and Laodicean Church Ages, we are not working to figure out the meaning of a closed Book, but resting, rewarded with the perfect interpretation of the Word. For forty-seven years the Son of God has been crucified afresh without their walled cities by denominational believers as blind as the so-called Jews and Israelites who crucified the Son of man (Revelation 3:17-20). The cleansing of the heavenly Sanctuary will commence when Satan is cast down to Earth, followed after three days by the beginning of the resurrection and glorification of the Church Age saints and the manifestation of the ‘third pull’ in “we who are alive and remain.” Then “when the day of Pentecost has fully come” again, God’s Throne guards, foreshadowed as four living creatures, will meet the Lord in the metaphorical King’s Chamber of the Pyramid, the “little room” of Brother Branham’s Tent Vision where He will meet them in the ‘third pull’ for manifestation as He met Brother Branham in his ‘third pull’ for revelation, and translate them to the Wedding Supper in the sky. Thus there will be no living creature to announce the Fifth Seal, for the Church misses the tribulation. Satan’s unseen ‘parousia’ coming will incarnate the pope, and “that Wicked one will be revealed, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and lying wonders” (II Thessalonians 2:6-12). nl636.htm
