Syrian Christians in 2-Week Blockade by Rebel Fighters, Residents Desperate
August 25, 2012 — An estimated 12,000 people have spent two weeks blockaded in the Christian town of Rableh, Syria, near Homs in the south. Experiencing a shortage of food and medical supplies, residents could not leave as rebel snipers were shooting at them. The town, close to the border with Lebanon, was liberated by Syrian government forces on Friday, according to Beirut-based Al-Mayadeen satellite channel. These reports are yet to be verified. Sixty militants were reportedly eliminated. For about two weeks Syrian rebels maintained blockade of the mostly-Christian town, refusing entry to food and medical supplies, according to the Aid to the Church in Need Catholic charity, which tried to deliver supplies to the city. . .
Snipers were waiting for those who thought about leaving the town in search for food. Those who dared to leave in search for food were shot at. Three men who made attempts to leave the disaster zone were shot dead, informed the charity’s representative Father Waldemar Cislo from Beirut. There were motorcyclists who made an attempt to carry bread into the village, but they were also shot at, though managing to escape the firing line unhurt. Electric power supply has also been disrupted in the area as the conflict . . . The government of President Bashar al-Assad said the country’s capital has been freed from the militants and the mop-up operation in the financial hub of Aleppo is getting close to the end. . . Full story: rt.com
Comment: The fighters are NOT rebels but foreign invaders serving the ‘City of London.’ Breaking news reports of another Syrian massacre, in the village of Daraya, blamed on the Assad regime, is further fuel for the British-Obama intention to use civilian atrocities as justification to attack Syria and impose “regime change”, under Tony Blair’s R2P—Responsibility to Protect—doctrine. . . The Mother Superior at the Syrian monastery of St. John the Mutilated in Qaram, says there are very few Syrians among the Syrian “rebels”, and she charges that Western news media coverage of ongoing violence in Syria has been “partial and untrue”. The news coverage is a “fake”, which “hides atrocities committed in the name of liberty and democracy,” Mother Agnes Mariam told the Irish Times, August 13.
She said that in Aleppo, foreigners came in, and went into civilian areas, and then they claimed that the Syrian army is bombing civilian areas. “We don’t want to be invaded, as in Aleppo, by mercenaries, some of whom think they are fighting Israel. They bring terror, destruction, fear, and nobody protects the civilians,” she said. She described one situation where rebels cut a man’s finger off, and then beheaded him. She said that abuse of young girls, beheadings, and abductions by the rebels, are common. . . Full story: cecaust.com.au.
Plot to Provoke War with Iran thwarted by Navy analyst
August 26, 2012 — Shorter WaPo: In spring of 2007, someone in the Bush administration (unindicted co-conspirator Richard Bruce Cheney? Neocons?) Sends uber hawk Vice Admiral Kevin J. Cosgriff to Oil Gulf with instructions to provoke a war with Iran. He allegedly toys with challenging Iran’s claim to half of the Shatt al-Arab. He certainly decided abruptly to bring two aircraft carriers to the Gulf, in hopes of provoking Iran into doing something stupid, and without telling the State Department or the White House.
He also pushes analysis alleging that Bahrain Shiites intend anti-American terrorism on behalf of Iran.
Adviser to the Navy Gwenyth Todd (former National Security Council staffer) rightly challenges this stupid conspiracy theory (Bahrain Shiites are mostly Arab Akhbaris who reject ayatollahs, and would not slavishly obey Persian, Usuli Iran!). I.e. Cosgriff was allegedly nearly making a coup in order to get up a war. Failing something so drastic, he may have (or his Neocon superiors may have) hoped to forestall direct talks with Iran that month.
Todd blows the whistle on Cosgriff, letting State know about his intended insubordination. Word gets back to Neocons or whoever was behind the provocation and Cosgriff that Todd was the leak. She is abruptly deprived of her base pass and security clearance, a trumped up case is made against her with the FBI that she received money from a former boyfriend who did illegal consulting with Sudan (she says she returned the small sum he sent her). Todd’s career is ruined, her inquiries and grievances are ignored, she marries an Austrlian naval officer and goes into exile in Perth. FBI harasses her even there. Todd’s account is corroborated by Navy sources speaking off the record, according to the Washington Post… Full story: juancole.com
In Spite of the Repression, Revisionism will Win
July 28, 2012 — On the strictly scientific and historical level the revisionists’ victory is already total but the news must still be brought to the knowledge of the general public, which is no small matter.
In any case, there is necessarily a considerable time lag between the moment when a staggering scientific find occurs and the moment when public opinion finally decides to accept that find. In former times it could take centuries but nowadays, especially thanks to the Internet, two or three generations may suffice (from 66 to 99 years after 1945!). Some day researchers from all backgrounds will work together to publish on the Internet an interminable Encyclopaedia of Lies of the Holocaust, a huge Collection of Holocaust Howlers, a vast inventory of fakes and falsification by the “true falsifiers of history.” With sources or references to hand, readers will discover the names and works of those who have dishonoured themselves either by lies, slanders and false testimony or by calls for repression against revisionists. Future generations will see, in the actual evidence, how a certain type of universal religion largely founded on hatred, fraud and lucre is born, lives and dies. No plot or conspiracy has been needed to turn out these holocaustic abjections; the self-assurance of a victor with unlimited power, his insolence, cynicism and taste for vengeance, on the one hand, and the exploitation of Stupidity, Lies and Credulity, on the other hand, have been enough. (The mage shows Professor Faurisson PhD in hospital following a kosher assassination attempt).
On victories won thus far by revisionism and most often hidden from the general public see, robertfaurisson.blogspot.com, my writings of December 11, 2006 (robertfaurisson.blogspot.it) and September 11, 2011 (robertfaurisson.blogspot.it). Here I shall call the reader’s attention to the part of the latter article (“The Victories of Revisionism—continued”) under the heading The coup de grâce given, on December 27, 2009, to the myth of the Nazi “gas chambers.” It deals with Robert Jan van Pelt, whom I sometimes call “the last of the Mohicans of the exterminationist cause.” Van Pelt is a Jewish researcher who, giving up the fight, has come to acknowledge that there exists at Auschwitz, capital of “the Holocaust”, no EVIDENCE of an extermination of the Jews but only “testimonies” (sic). He recommends that the entire site of Auschwitz and Birkenau be surrendered to nature. In other words, if I understand correctly, the tens of millions of tourists or pilgrims who have visited the place have been and continue to be fooled with an abundance of false evidence. For me, the exploiters of the Auschwitz myth are not just making fools of the living but are also mocking the dead, whose real sufferings are thus relegated to make way for phantasmagorical tales born of sick brains and turned to profit by swindlers.
I confirm it here: today—since December 27, 2009, in fact—there is no one to be found putting forth any scientific evidence to support this cause built both on the too real pain of victims and on too many “facts [not] established” and, consequently, “bound for the rubbish bins of history.” The admission is Jean-Claude Pressac’s. Still reeling from the defeat that he had had to endure during my trial of May 9, 1995, where barrister Eric Delcroix and I had demanded his appearance, the man signed that admission a month later, on June 15, 1995, at the end of a text of nearly forty pages. This capitulation by a former employee of the Klarsfeld couple was first kept under lock and key for five years. Then the piece was finally revealed by Valerie Igounet in small print towards the very end of her book, Histoire du négationnisme en France, Seuil, Paris, 2000, p. 613-652.
Sic transit gloria turpis mendacii! [How quickly doth the glory of the foul lie pass away!].
The Auschwitz swindle has had its day. As for the repression exerted by the swindlers, it is a sign that they have run out of arguments. They were asked for “one proof, one single proof” to back up their terrible accusation: according to them, for over four years Germany had perpetrated against the Jewish people a crime without precedent in the history of mankind and, for all that time, the whole world, except for a handful of “Righteous” ones, had remained indifferent to the unspeakable horror. At first, the swindlers provided an abundance of “evidence”, all of which proved to be fallacious, so much so that later, from 1979, they had to conclude that there was, after all, no need to prove the obvious! * It only remained for them to strike blows at the noncompliant and strike they did. They have struck in producing works where guessing vies with speculation, in the cinema as well as in novels, both with brainwashing and with physical violence, along with the unjust power of the law. All a waste of effort. Revisionism will win.

Obama’s Geopolitical China ‘Pivot’: The Pentagon Targets China
August 24, 2012 — Since the collapse of the Soviet Union and the nominal end of the Cold War some twenty years back, rather than reducing the size of its mammoth defense spending, the US Congress and all US Presidents have enormously expanded spending for new weapons systems, increased permanent military bases around the world and expansion of NATO not only to former Warsaw Pact countries on Russia’s immediate periphery; it also has expanded NATO and US military presence deep into Asia on the perimeters of China through its conduct of the Afghan war and related campaigns . . . While China’s access to vast resources of offshore conventional oil and gas were being restricted, Washington was actively trying to lure China into massive pursuit of exploitation of shale gas inside China. The reasons had nothing to do with US goodwill towards China. It was in fact another major weapon in the destruction of China, now through a form of environmental warfare.

Woman becomes First Openly Gay General
August 12, 2012 — An Army officer being promoted to brigadier general openly acknowledged her homosexuality on Friday by having her wife pin her star to her uniform, thus becoming the first openly gay officer of flag rank in the United States military.
The officer, Brig. Gen. Tammy S. Smith, 49, a 26-year veteran of the Army, was promoted in a ceremony at the women’s memorial at Arlington National Cemetery. The star was affixed by Tracey Hepner, who was a co-founder last year of the Military Partners and Families Coalition, which “provides support, resources, education and advocacy for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender military partners and their families,” according to its Web site. The couple married in March 2012 in the District of Columbia . . . Full story: nytimes.com
Comment: “As it was in the days of Lot . . . so shall it be when the Son of man is revealed” (Luke 17:28-30).
In 1954 the Lord showed Brother Branham a vision in which his local council would resume portion of his land to widen the road. God said, “When you see the surveyor peg out a new boundary moving your gate that will be the sign that you are to move westward”.
These symbols signified the approaching end of the Laodicean Church Age when the gate or place of God’s judgment and entrance into the Kingdom would narrow and the broad way that leads to destruction would draw the Pentecostals and all denominations back to Judaeo-Catholicism and the judgment (Matthew 7:13-14; Deuteronomy 16:1-12; Revelation 3:20). Eight years later when the vision came to pass the Prophet told his wife, “It’s time now, honey, we must turn west”.
Two days after that on December 22, 1962, as he was standing in his bedroom one morning he entered into the Spirit of the Lord and saw some tiny little birds sitting in a bush in the form of a pyramid. They flew eastward and a flight of doves arrived from the west, flying east in pyramid formation. God wanted Brother Branham to be conscious of the fact that he would be in the desert near Tucson picking a burr off his clothes, looking back to his church in the east when this vision came to pass. No sooner had the doves flown out of his sight than he turned back west; there was a blast of thunder and he saw seven Angels come to him in the form of a pyramid—signifying the seven measures of Spirit that had anointed the Church Age messengers would endue him to unfold the mystery of the Seven Seals. God said, “Turn westward and go to Tucson. You will be forty miles northeast picking a bullheader off your clothes when this vision is fulfilled.”
Brother Branham related this vision to his congregation on December 30, 1962, in the sermon Sirs, is this the Time?
A constellation is made when fixed stars appear to form a separate and specific grouping, usually named with reference to the outline enclosing them such as the Big Dipper or the Bear. In Revelation 1:16 and 20 the seven angels are signified as stars. In his vision these seven stars formed a pyramid-shaped constellation representing the capstone that was never placed on God’s second Bible, the Great Pyramid at Giza. It was never placed because it represented Jesus Christ, the fullness of the Word, the Stone the Hebrew builders rejected; the Stone that “will smite the image upon his feet of iron and clay, and break them to pieces . . . in the days of these kingdoms” (Daniel 2:34, 44; Romans 9:33; I Peter 2:6-10).
“His feet of iron and clay are the image of the beast” represented by president Eisenhower (“iron worker”), and Premier Khrushchev (“clay”) who sought an accommodation in the United Nations where an exasperated Mr. Khrushchev removed his shoe and beat the desk, and so Rome, the fourth world empire continues in its “divided” state between the five toes of the kingdom of the west under the USA and the five toes of the kingdom of the east under Russia. “And they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men”—Serpent’s seed—“as it was in the days of Noah.” Physical and spiritual Serpent’s seed have ruled both Russia and the United States for the past century.
Brother Branham was to “restore the apostolic faith [and] finish the mystery of God” (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Acts 3:21; Revelation 10:7) and “when that which is perfect [the fullness of the Word] has come, that which was in part [PART-Word and a Mediator] shall be done away” (I Corinthians 13:10). The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form through the mouth of His Prophet as the Spoken Word, which is the revelation of the UNWRITTEN Seventh Seal of Revelation 8:1, the mystery of the voices of the Seven Thunders that Daniel and John were commanded: “write not and seal up to the time of the end.” This is the Capstone revelation that is incarnating Christ’s end-time Bride to complete the Building of God’s dwelling.
The pyramid-shaped constellation formed by the angels signified the Capstone and its completion when the loose ends of revelation left unfinished through the demise of the Church Age messengers are gathered by the seventh angel and tied together by the revelation of the Seven Seals.
At the start of January 1963, Brother Branham and his family relocated from Jeffersonville to Tucson in accordance with the visions. One morning he was woken by the Lord and told to climb up into Sabino Canyon. There, kneeling alone with hands upraised, he asked God to show him the meaning of the pyramid of seven angels. Suddenly there was a sword in his hand, and a Voice said, “This is the King’s Sword. Fear not. This is the third pull and the vindication of your ministry”.
God told Moses, “If they will not obey the Voice of these two signs neither heed your prophetic THUS SAITH THE LORD, national judgment will follow.” Moses spoke with Pharaoh offering God’s grace if he would let His people go and prophesied a specific plague should he refuse. With each refusal God hardened Pharaoh’s heart when Moses stretched forth the rod of God (Exodus 4:20) in judgment and his prophecy was vindicated throughout the kingdom.
“The rod of God” in the hands of Moses was equivalent to “the King’s Sword” which is the Word of God that materialized in Brother Branham’s hand as he prayed in Sabino Canyon before the opening of the Seals and represented his placement or adoption as “the firstfruit of those who are Christ’s at His ‘parousia’ Coming” (I Corinthians 15:23). It confirmed his authority to speak the fullness of God’s Word in the “third pull” with the assurance what he said Christ would honour. The Name is in the Word because He is the Word so the Word interpreted is the manifestation of the Name of God, and the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ in the hands of His end-time Bride is God’s judgment rod today (Ephesians 1:21). The “third pull” is now in your hands (II Corinthians 5:18). When Moses held the rod of God over the waters, the rivers and streams turned to blood, representing the blood of that nation. Egypt was finished. When he put forth his rod a second time they became infested with frogs, when he smote the dust with his rod, it became lice. He held his rod over the Red Sea and it parted, granting Israel a route of escape but when he stretched forth his rod from the farther shore the waters came together, destroying the Egyptians and eclipsing the superpower of that day.
The Pillar of Fire that spoke to Moses has spoken again and appeared before thousands in these last days. It was not Moses who did anything; it was the Angel Who went before him. That Angel went before Brother Branham who also received two signs and the prophetic spoken Word. He called them “three pulls.” His first sign was a manifestation in the back of his hand enabling him to diagnose the illness of one whose hand he was holding. His second “pull” fulfilled Luke 17:28-30, revealing Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever, by discerning the thoughts and intents of people’s hearts: this was the last sign Jesus promised us Gentiles before the end of our dispensation.
The third “pull” was the prophetic spoken Word. Under inspiration Brother Branham spoke squirrels into existence on two occasions, shot and ate them; he spoke a dead fish back to life; spoke a tumour from his wife’s side; and the salvation of two young boys. God performed these signs as examples for us who will speak the Word after the “seventh Trump”.
Brother Branham’s “third pull” called national judgment upon America as confirmed by the 1964 Good Friday earthquake that almost sunk Alaska, and spiritual death will fall on all who refuse his call to “come out of Babylon” (Revelation 14:9-11; 18:4). Since the revelation of the Seven Seals brought that which is perfect—Christ, the fullness of the Word—PART-Word and mediation for ignorance of the fullness is done away; judgment can no longer be delayed (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:6). The day the full Word came into effect the man-made religious systems of Rome and her (once) Protestant harlot daughters became guilty of the second crucifixion of the Son of God.
In “The Indictment” Brother Branham said, “. . . the time for national repentance, it’s gone. I believe that this nation cannot repent. I believe that it’s crossed the line between mercy and judgment . . . We are guilty of the same sins that God destroyed the world by in the antediluvian world—[multiculturalism or miscegenation between Adam’s race and the race of Cain]. We’re guilty of the same sins that He destroyed the world in Sodom and Gomorrah—[Homosexuality]. . . And we got all the same spiritual evidence laying here before us, all the same spiritual evidence, worldwide known, that brought down the mercies of God upon those generations, that also to reject brought judgment. So if this generation has rejected the same mercy that was spurned in them days, God would be unjust to let them get by without judgment” (William Branham, The Indictment, p. 11:72-74).
As God used Moses to call Israel out of Egypt in the first Exodus, and Paul to call the Church out of Israel in the second exodus, He has used Brother Branham to call the Bride out of the church in the third exodus. Because of Israel’s unbelief God could not give them rest in the Promised Land for the promise was of faith, not self-works, so He caused them to wander forty years in the wilderness until the generation of unbelievers perished. Because Moses smote the rock a second time, even he could not enter the Land. And nobody in today’s church organizations will enter into the millennium. Those born-again in Laodicea will enter by way of the grave.
Joshua and Caleb were the only adult survivors of the first Exodus to enter the Promised Land. Joshua means Jesus or “Jehovah Savior” and types the Son of Man Who is leading the Bride into the Millennium today following the death of the Prophet and the close of the Church Ages. Joshua was with Moses throughout the journey as the Angel of the Covenant was with the PART-Word Church throughout its pilgrimage in the office Son of God. Caleb, who stood by Joshua and was faithful to his commands, types the end-time Bride under pre-eminence today.
Brother Branham was not our Messenger, he was the earthly angel to the Laodicean Age who introduced our Messenger, the Lord Himself who came down from heaven clothed with a cloud and a rainbow over his head (Daniel 7:9, Acts 1:11; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 1:7; 10:1). This Cloud was “the sign of the end-time” when Jesus Christ would open and reveal the Seven Seals which would bring about His ‘parousia’ Coming (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:1, 6). Thousands around the world heard the “midnight cry” or “Shout” of Brother Branham’s Message and came out of their denomination; many are called but few have oil in their vessels with their lamps. Like Moses, Brother Branham called the people out but was unable to bring all of them in, so the foolish virgins are in the circle of this Message. Believing the letter without the Spirit they have wandered a spiritual wilderness for almost fifty years since the “shout” of the Message in 1963 and will perish in the wilderness like those who came out with Moses.
One night Brother Roy Roberson, a member of the Board of Branham Tabernacle had a dream. All of the Board was seated like the disciples at the Lord’s Communion Table, and he said, “You were setting there, Brother Branham, and I saw that big Pillar of Light come in and get you and take you away from the Lord’s table, and you went westward.” Cause he was setting [in Jeffersonville] on the east side watching me go west [to Tucson], and this Light come in and take me out.”
“Said it was one morning like it was a vision. Got up in the bed about three or four o’clock in the morning, something like that, and saw this happen. And said he screamed, look like for days, “Brother Bill, come back.” And Roy and I have been real brothers. We live together, and hunt together, and we’re just brothers. And he screamed for me till he was hoarse in his throat, “Come back. Bring him back. Bring him back.” Crying, he said, Here come that Pillar of Fire coming back, or a Cloud come back, and He set me at the head of the table, and I’d been changed. It was a mystery to Brother Roy, me being changed to look different.”
“That was just before I come back for the Seven Seals. When I come back for the Seven Seals . . . It happened again early in the morning, and there he looked in the room, and he saw this big Light, or a Cloud upon a mountain. He asked me not long ago, “Was there something about a cloud being on a mountain?” And I said . . . “Yes, when Peter, James, and John was took up, and the cloud overshadowed the Lord Jesus. And God spoke, said, “This is My beloved Son.” I preached on that here, not long ago, a little message, “Hear Ye Him.”
“And he said that he went up the mountain. And when he did, I was standing there. And a Voice came from the Cloud and said something on this order: “This is My servant. I’ve called him to be a prophet to the age, to lead the people just as Moses did. And he’s been given the authority. He can speak into existence.” Something like that like Moses did, like speaking in the flies. And we know about the squirrels and so forth, and things that’s already took place. Little Hattie Wright back there, I suppose would know what taken place at her house. And He told him that I had done what Moses had done . . .”
And the Lord said to Brother Branham, “But that was the prophets of the Old Testament. You’ve been called to be there in a much higher office than that.” He said, “You have more gifts besides that; you was called to pray for the sick and to preach the Gospel in the apostolic forms, you know of greater things, many great gifts” . . . (Standing in the Gap, p. 23:93-97, 121; John 14:12).
This was one of several dreams received by the brethren that foretold Brother Branham’s adoption or placement in his new commission with the ‘Elijah’ anointing after the end of the Laodicean Church Age to introduce Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming for His end-time Bride in this holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the antitype of Israel’s Pentecostal feast. This is equivalent to the vision shown to Peter, James and John in Matthew 17:1-8 because it shows that the Elijah of this day is the Lord Jesus Christ, the fullness of the Spirit that anointed all seven messengers. The vision on Mount Transfiguration showed that the Law and the prophets signified by Moses and Elijah were fulfilled in Jesus who is the Word (Matthew 11:13). Brother Roy’s dream likewise showed that under Brother Branham’s new commission we are to look away from the Church Age messengers and “that which was PART-Word, to that which is complete”—Jesus Christ, whose second Coming would be introduced by Brother Branham’s ‘third pull’—the opening of the Word (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7).
Brother Branham said “the world is going insane,” and today I heard an announcement on the radio concerning “backward running.” Apparently the Chinese have been practicing backward walking and backward running for thousands of years and are said to be the pioneers of this extraordinary way of life! In all my years in Hong Kong I never once encountered this phenomenon, but it was there that I discovered the churches have been “running backwards” since Ephesus (Revelation 2:4-5). And the Prophet said, “The natural man, by the knowledge, looks backward for his achievement (That’s science. See?) to what God has done in a former creation. They go out and pick up clods, and get pieces of rocks, and fossils, and elements, and ties them together. See? On that achievement they are taking what God has done and perverting it from its original estate; and making his living quarters and so forth, and his economy a little better by what has been created. That’s in the natural achievement by man.”
“But God in the spiritual achievement is going forward, not going backward. He’s going forward, looking into the Word and believing the promises for things that never has come yet, for the spiritual revelations to manifest the spiritual things that God has promised. He sees them come to pass. Just as the scientist in his laboratory are working on different things to help man taking creation; the spiritual man is looking forward to something that God promised that has never yet been created. The natural man looks backward. The spiritual man looks forward.”
That’s the way they’ve got that in the church. The natural church member looks back to what Finney, Sankey, Knox, Calvin. That was all right. But that was their day. We’re looking forward for something else, a promise that’s greater and higher, and what God has promised. Science goes back to pick it up. We go forward in the Word of the Lord to find what God has achieved” (Countdown, #22:9, p. 5:36-38).
Denominational religion is the petrified fossil of a bygone age whereas the Church of the living God is “walking in the Light as He is in the Light,” not impersonating the glare of a day gone by. Denominational morgues of churches are tombstones memorializing Moves of the Spirit fulfilled by the fathers and forsaken by their descendants blindly wandering from the strait and narrow path of righteousness to the broad way that leads to destruction. Successive generations have been born to die in the denominational prison of their fathers, never encountering the present Truth and promise of eternal Life the Spirit has continued to unfold from the promises of God’s unchanging Word.
In the days of the horse and buggy Martin Luther, the angel to the Sardis Church Age rediscovered the great Light of justification by grace through faith that pulled God’s children out from the Judaeo-Roman Catholic program of self-works and ignited Holy Ghost Fire. Yet multitudes of Lutherans were raised in the Church in absolute ignorance of justification, never knowing Christ. John Wesley, who was the angel to the Philadelphian Church Age, added sanctification to Luther’s Message and at the end of his Age natural men developed the motor car that multiplied horsepower. So as science transformed natural elements into energy to harness more horsepower sanctification drew Christians closer to the likeness of Christ by separating them from man’s world to the holiness of God’s Word.
Leaving the Wesleyans to glory in their past the Spirit lit on one William Seymour, the son of freed slaves. He had come to Los Angeles to preach in a Negro church but was kicked out because of his doctrine. Undaunted, he started to hold home prayer meetings and when crowds reached into the hundreds he held meetings in the streets. The Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles initiated the Laodicean Church Age with the restoration of the gifts of the Spirit long forgotten by the denominations. And as science took to the air, rising to a higher level of human accomplishment with the aeroplane, the Church left the dry bones of form, ritual and lectionary pertaining to earthbound religion and received the baptism with the Holy Spirit.
At the close of Laodicea God anointed His Prophet William Branham to restore the apostolic faith, finish the mystery of God, introduce Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming and call a people out from horse and buggy, motor car and man-made heavier-than-air-machine religions to maturity in the fullness of the Word for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation. Meanwhile science had developed rockets that can take man above the clouds of creed and denomination into the astronaut age. God then sent us a prophet who introduced the second or ‘parousia’ Coming of Christ with the promise those who are wise will travel as a thought. We will change in the atoms in the twinkle of an eye and raise from our present three dimensional world to the sixth dimension for the Wedding of the Lamb in the Sky. Speed! Matter is Spirit slowed down.
The natural man even counts backwards starting from ten to zero, then “lift off.” Ten signifies the perfection of Divine order. Israel had ten tribes who were all carnal. When Jacob took Joseph’s two Gentile sons and blessed them. God crossed his hands, symbolically transferring the blessing and birthright from the elder representing the Israel and the Law, through the Cross, to the younger representing the elect of Adam’s race.
God counts from Pentecost advancing forward from the first to the Seventh Church Age to this holy convocation of the fiftieth day and our Pentecostal Jubilee. As soon as Brother Branham received His Elijah anointing for his new commission we reached zero hour, the rapture is on and we prepare for “lift off.” Revelation 4:1, “After the Laodicean Church Age had ended I looked, and beheld a door [signifying grace (Revelation 3:8)] was still open in heaven: and the first voice which I heard (in Revelation 1:10) speaking to me like a trumpet, said, Come up here, and I will show what must take place after [the Church Ages]. Instantly I was caught up in the Spirit.” Revelation of and obedience to the “Shout” catches us into the rapture and baptizes us into our position in the Body, which is the Capstone. The rapture is the threefold PROCESS described by Paul in I Thessalonians 4:16 that commenced with the revelation of the Seven Seals.
Just this week astronaut Neil Armstrong (1930-2012) died aged eighty-two. He was Command Pilot of Gemini VIII (March 16-17, 1966), and Apollo 11 (July 16-24, 1969). In one of his most mysterious quotes he is reported to have said: “There are many amazing things to find on the moon, if you can but sift through the truths”! The Commander ceased signing autographs in 1994, and declined further interviews regarding his alleged lunar experiences. Many arguments have been put forward as to why Armstrong’s craft and crew could not possibly have landed on the Moon. It seems this was a HOAX.
Brother Branham said, “. . . if you go to the Moon you couldn’t set down because see, you’d jump right back up unless you had some magnet to hold you there. You couldn’t stay overnight; you’d freeze to death. In the daytime you’d burn up. What you going to do when you get there” (Basis of Fellowship 61-0214)?
“Oh, now they’re all wanting to make a whole lot of these astronaut cans so they can get into it. And the atomic age comes, they’re going to bust up the world; they just pull this and all go over on the moon, taking a trip to the Moon, and have it all over with, and so they’ll just make them another economy on the moon. They ain’t going to get there. I don’t believe, with all my heart, they’ll ever get there. See” (Countdown 20:101 62-0909M)?
“What do you call it the man’s day for?” you would say. It’s the day that the works by the knowledge of man is glorified. Look what all the brag of the Communists. Somebody try and get somebody to the Moon. God’s trying to get somebody to heaven. See? But look how they’re spending millions, and billions, and trillions of dollars in a wasted effort. When they get there they ain’t going to find nothing. What’s the matter with them? I don’t care about the Moon. I want to pass the Moon so fast I won’t even see it, just keep going higher. I want to pass the milky, white way, go on, just keep going. Yes” (God of this Evil Age 18:85 65-0801M).
There is only one entrance to the Kingdom of heaven, and the door of mercy is closing; Christ stands without the world church system calling to His own that follow Him by obedience to the Word. After a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit in the manifestation of the Sons of God we space cadets will graduate “in the twinkling of an eye” and our little hunted and persecuted group will go from time to eternity in the sixth dimension beyond the Moon and the stars to meet Jesus in that cloud of witnesses (Hebrews 12:1) while those who do not come into Christ will enter judgment. nl751.htm
