Bible Believers’ Newsletter 924

“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 around God’s unchanging Word.

Today we present Part IV of our teaching “Jubilee” wherein Brother Branham provides us with some specifics as to timing. So down on your knees for revelation, and if you have any corrections or suggestions on the subject we will be pleased to consider what you have to share. We covet your assistance and prayers.

Remember, your country whichever it is, is entering planned bankruptcy; economic screws are being tightened worldwide as the “powers that be”—who know not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel—press the Goyim into their totalitarian one world government. You will either learn to discipline your life or extremity will be imposed with military precision. We have entered the hour in which the foolish virgins are discovering their lamps have insufficient oil to penetrate the gloom; the wise scarcely suffice and “those that sell” peddle “the letter only”.

Ministers and brethren who followed the Prophet’s Ministry for decades are falling away “like rats” as he spoke of preachers who go to Los Angeles. “It’s a graveyard for them. Good men go there and die like rats.” Like the Buddhists, Boy Scouts, Baptists and Muslims, brethren have rejoiced in brotherly kindness with the anointing on their body and mortal spirit but never walked alone in the Spirit with Jesus Christ.

Since the opening of the Seals the call has not been to gather unbelievers out of Darkness into Christ but to call misguided believers out from denominational Darkness “into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.” It is that late. If you are a pastor you had better tend to your own flock—few are born-again.

Please send a copy of our newsletter to Christian friends within or without the circle of this Message. Some of the virgins may be foolish because you or I have not shared the revelation of the present truth” . . . what Jesus is doing now.

If you have spreadsheet skills and are able and willing to construct a spreadsheet ranging over BC and AD years in which a change of year will change the whole range so as to reflect jubilees please contact me and we will define the parameters.

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

Americans: A Conquered People: The New Serfs

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts Former US Asst. Sec. of Treasury for Economic Policy

City of London

May 23, 2016 — In my opinion, the American people will remain serfs until they wake up to Revolution. Today Americans exist as a conquered people. They have lost the Bill of Rights, the amendments to the Constitution that protect their liberty. Only those with power were safe. In America today anyone not politically protected can be declared “associated with terrorism” and taken out by a Hellfire missile from a drone on the basis of a list of human targets drawn up by the president’s advisers. Due process, guaranteed by the US Constitution, no longer exists in the United States of America . . .

The United States government has unaccountable power. Its power is not accountable to US statutory law, to international law, to the Congress, to the judiciary, to the American people, or to moral conscience. In the 21st century the war criminal US government has murdered, maimed, and dislocated millions of people based on lies and propaganda. Washington has destroyed seven countries in whole or part in order to enrich the American elite and comply with the neoconservative drive for US world hegemony.

Americans live in a propaganda-fabricated world in which a brutal police state is cloaked in nice words like “freedom and democracy.” “Freedom and democracy” is what Washington’s war machine brings with sanctions, bombs, no-fly zones, troops, and drones to countries that dare to cling to their independence from Washington’s hegemony.

Only two countries armed with strong military capability and nuclear weapons—Russia and China—stand between Washington and Washington’s goal of hegemony over the entire world. If Russia or China falter, the evil ensconced in Washington will rule the world. America will be the Anti-Christ. The predictions of the Christian Evangelicals preaching “end times” will take on new meaning.

Russia is vulnerable to becoming a vassal state of Washington . . . Both Russia and China are infected with Western worship that creates a vulnerability that Washington can exploit. Delusions can result in inadequate response to threat.

Magen DavidAll of Europe, both western, eastern and southern, the British Pacific, Australia and New Zealand, Japan and other parts of Asia are vassal states of Washington’s Empire. None of these allegedly “sovereign” countries have an independent voice or an independent foreign or economic policy. All of Latin America is subject to Washington’s control . . . The repeal of Glass-Steagall deregulated Wall Street . . . Americans are a conquered people . . . Unable to stop the lawlessness of their own “democratic” government, Americans plea for help from abroad . . . change in America cannot be produced by elections or be achieved internally through peaceful means.

Comment: In AD96 Jesus declared the United States will be the image unto the Roman beast (Revelation 13:11-18).


Will the November US Presidential Election bring the End of the World?

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts Former US Asst. Sec. of Treasury for Economic Policy

May 24, 2016 — “We have been watching for nearly a month a steady buildup of American and NATO forces along Russia’s borders—on land, on sea and in the air. There has been nothing like this on Russia’s borders, such an amassing of hostile military force, since the German invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941.”

So concludes America’s leading Russian expert, Professor Stephen Cohen (Princeton and New York University). Professor Cohen asks if Washington is sleepwalking and needs to wake up or whether Washington has gone crazy and intends war.

Pepe Escobar advises Washington to “beware what you wish for: Russia is ready for war.”

Escobar reports that recently the Rand Corporation, “essentially a CIA outpost,” concluded that “Russia could overrun NATO in a mere 60 hours, if not less.” On the level of nukes and missile systems, Russia is four generations ahead of the US military/security complex, which is mainly interested in inflating profits with cost overruns. US weapons systems are simply outclassed.

[In 1958 Brother Branham said, “Russia . . . according to our own science is five years ahead of us. And when we’re caught up in five years, they’ll be ten years farther the other way” (Handwriting on the Wall, #58-0309M)] . . . Russian high command is concerned with the Russian government’s low-key response to Washington’s aggression . . . Stephen Cohen and Alastair Crooke, a former British secret agent . . . have noticed that the Russian military . . . are putting pressure on President Putin to eliminate those in the government who are willing to compromise Russia’s independence in order to gain acceptance by Washington . . . Washington is miscalulating by seeking unipolar hegemony and, thus, is forcing Putin into the camp of the nationalists who value Russia’s sovereignty more than Western acceptance . . .

If Trump becomes US president, there is some possibility, perhaps, that the neoconservatives will cease to dominate US foreign and military policies. Should this turn out to be the case, the Russian nationalists might ease their pressure on Putin to remove the Atlanticist Integrationists from the government . . . no matter what you think of Trump, if you vote for Hillary you are definitely voting for the end of the world.

The Real Energy Deniers

May, 2016 — Today’s massive global human population owes its existence, prosperity and comfort to our economical and reliable energy supplies, particularly the hydrocarbon fuels—oil, coal, and gas. The world supports more people with fewer famines; and those with access to abundant reliable energy supplies have stabilised their populations and contribute most to caring for nature, culture and the poor. And the carbon dioxide recycled by the usage of hydrocarbon fuels is greening the world and adding to food supplies as native and farmed plants flourish in the warm, moist, carbon-rich atmosphere.

This long history of energy progress is now under threat from strong forces using any environmental alarm to deny human access to efficient energy . . . their energy-destroying policies will reduce global prosperity and population . . . Some see that as a desirable goal . . . Full story: carbon-sense.com


Philippines’ Rodrigo Duterte: Catholic Church ‘most hypocritical institution’

May 23, 2016 — “I will lecture until June 29 the sins of the Catholic Church and whether or not you are still relevant,” Philippines’ president-elect Mr. Duterte told reporters in Davao City, where he is the incumbent mayor . . . he once chided Pope Francis for holding up traffic when the pontiff visited capital city Manila. About 80 per cent of the Philippines population are Catholic. It has the largest Catholic concentration of any Asian country . . . Full story: abc.net.au

Comment: Brother Branham said, “there’s three isms, Communism, Fascism, and Nazism. They’ll all wind up out of Russia in Communism, and destroy Catholicism” (Voice of the Sign, #23:5, p. 14:116; Revelation 16:12-15; 17:11-18; 18:4-20).


Jubilee Part IV

“Religious people put Paul in chains. The very finest of churches that day was what put him in chains. If it just wasn’t the Constitution of the United States, they’d do the same thing today. That’s right. Just wait till she’s broke a little more”  [Revelation 13:15-20].

“And a serpent grabbed him through the hand. Now, watch. Paul didn’t fear. He said, Jesus Christ said, ‘If they take up serpents, it shall not harm them.’ So he walked over here, shaked him off on the fire; turns around and walks over to get some sticks and put back on the fire; turned hisself around and warmed his back, and turned around this way and warmed his hands. The natives said, ‘Why don’t he die? Why don’t that man die? He ought to drop dead?’ But Paul was so full of the Holy Ghost (See what I mean?), so full of the Holy Ghost until the poison wouldn’t poison him.”

“Oh, brother, give me a church full of the Holy Ghost. God will do in one year what all theology has failed to do in two thousand years. You wait till the anointing of the church really strikes home to that faithful the little [Capstone] remnant. After the doors of the Gentiles is closed, oh, God will anoint a church then. “He who’s filthy, let him be filthy still. He who’s righteous let him be righteous still, and he who’s holy let him be holy still.” And God will anoint the church with the power of God, and things will be taken place. Not only that then, but He’s doing it now” (COD, p. 145:201-203).

Brother Branham was speaking of the manifestation of the Sons of God in the year of Jubilee after the end of the Christian dispensation and grace. In “The Seventy Weeks of Daniel” he said, “The Gentile church is in the end of the Laodicean Age. If . . . the Jews are in their homeland, already there, and the Gentile apostasy has already taken place, and we have a President like we have, we have a nation that’s broke up like we have, we have atomic bombs hanging in the hangers, we have a church that’s lukewarm, we have a church of people that’s pulled theirselves together, we have a ministry that patterns the ministry of Jesus Christ for to catch the Stone when He comes, what’s left to happen? It might be at any minute. There isn’t nothing else left. We’re at the end time. Oh, glory! I don’t know whether I’m going to be able to get into that jubilee or not, but I just want to get part of it to you anyhow.”

“We’re waiting for that Stone . . . Now, a striking statement if you want to put it down. Listen close, please. This is my last comment, next to it. I got a little bitty thing here just after this, a little note I want to speak about. Now, rest just a moment and listen close. Give you something that’s striking to go right in on this. See? There’s not even a width of a knife blade between the end of this age and the coming of Christ. Everything . . . There’s nothing else left. Is Israel in her homeland? We know that. Are we in the Laodicean Age? Has the Message of this Pentecostal age went forth to try to shake the people back to the original Pentecostal blessing? Has every messenger come through the age just exactly the same thing? Is the nations against nations? Pestilence? Is there a famine in the land today, the true church driving hundreds of miles seeking to hear the Word of God? Not for bread alone, but for hearing of the Word of God, there come famine. Is that right? Why, we’re living right in the middle of it right here now. See where we’re at? We’re waiting for that Stone.”

“A striking statement: from the time God made the promise to Abraham—don’t miss this—from the time God made the promise to Abraham, Genesis 12:3, to the time of Christ being rejected in AD33, by the Jews, according to Galatians 3:16 and 17, and according to Usher’s (U-s-h-e-r-s) Ussher’s Chronology of the Hebrews, the power of God was with the Jews exactly 1954 years. God dealt with the Jews [Israelites] 1954 years according to the chronology of the Jews [Israelites] and according to Galatians 3:16 and 17 [1921BC + AD33 = 1954 years]. I got many more Scriptures, but just give that. Then after they rejected Christ, He turned to the Gentiles to take a people for His Name. You want a Scripture on that, the place? Acts 15:14″ [also Isaiah 11:10-11; 54:1-5; 56:7; Amos 9:11-12; Malachi 1:11].

“Now, counting the time, we find that we have exactly (listen) seventeen years left, and we will have the same span of cronoV (chronos) time given to us as God dealing with us in the power of the Holy Spirit since AD33 until 1977, the same span of time of 1954 years. God deals with us the same as He did with the Jews. See? How about that?”

“Now, mark down in your book a little Scripture here I want to give you. Leviticus 25, begin with the 8th verse. God calls a jubilee every forty-ninth year; the fiftieth year was the jubilee. We know that. We understand that. From the first jubilee of Leviticus 25:8, in 1977 will be the seventieth jubilee, making exactly 3,430 years. Jubilee means the going up, the release” (The Seventieth Week of Daniel, p. 107:159, 195-197).

30 Jubilees x 49 = 1470 years from Leviticus 25:8 to Calvary
40 Jubilees x 49 = 1960 years from Pentecost, leaving 17 years to 1977
70 Jubilees x 49 = 3430 years

Seventeen stands out very prominently as a significant number. It is not a multiple of any other number, and therefore it has no factors. Hence it is called one of the prime (or indivisible) numbers. What is more, it is the seventh in the list of the prime numbers. The series runs 1, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, etc. [0 and 1 are not generally recognized as prime numbers].

In like manner seventeen being the seventh of the series, it partakes of and intensifies the significance of the number seven. Indeed, it is the combination or sum of two perfect numbers—seven and ten—seven being the number of spiritual perfection, and ten of ordinal perfection. Contrasted together the significance of these two numbers is clear; and when united in the number seventeen we have a union of their respective meanings, viz., spiritual perfection, plus ordinal perfection, or the perfection of spiritual order.

We see a beautiful illustration in Romans 8:35-39 which concludes the first great division of that all-important Epistle, and sums up the blessings of those who are dead and risen in Christ. First we have a series of seven, then a series of ten. The seven are marked off by being put in the form of a question, while the ten are given as the answer to it.

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall

 

  • Tribulation,
  • Or distress,
  • Or persecution,
  • Or famine,
  • Or nakedness,
  • Or peril,
  • Or sword?

 

as it is written, For Thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that,

  1. Neither death (1),
  2. Nor life (2),
  3. Nor angels (3),
  4. Nor principalities (4),
  5. Nor things present (5),
  6. Nor things to come (6),
  7. Nor powers (7),
  8. Nor height (8),
  9. Nor depth (9),
  10. Nor any other creature (10),

shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Thus is set forth the spiritual and eternal perfection of the believer’s standing in Christ.

By forming the conclusive answer to the question, and giving us the positive assurance (though in a negative form), it seems as though the number ten is of more weight than seven when thus used together. It is so in II Chronicles 2, where, in verse 7, Solomon sends to Hiram for a cunning workman, and seven particulars are specified; and in verse 14 a man is sent and his qualifications are enumerated in ten particulars. A more important illustration will be found in Hebrews 12:18-24, and many other examples.

As the result of our investigations in numbers, 153 = 9 x 17, we see in this number all judgment (9) exhausted for the people of God (17) in the person of their Surety.

The number seventeen (not the word merely) has a significance of its own, and therefore an importance which must be taken into account wherever it appears in the Word of God by itself or as a factor. It forms a great factor in the number 153. (See Number in Scripture).

As I understand Brother Branham, the first cycle counted from Israel’s entry into Canaan when Moses was alive and the tribes of Reuben, Gad and half of the tribe of Manasseh took possession of their inheritance east of the River Jordan (Numbers 32:33) so that this was the first Sabbatical year. The year Moses died and Joshua entered the land was long ago determined by Bishops Ussher, Lloyd, Nicholas Toinard and William Wiston as 1451BC. We generally use Ussher’s chronology except for the dates for the birth, baptism and crucifixion of Jesus Christ. After seven years of conflict with the Canaanites, the land had rest from war at the close of 1445BC [Nisan 1451 – 1444 = 7], then Joshua in Gilgal gave Judah and Joseph their allotments. Early 1444, the tabernacle was moved to Shiloh and the land west of the Jordan was divided among the remaining seven tribes and the men from the two-and-a-half tribes east of the Jordan returned home. Until this, Israel had lived off the crops of the Canaanites, volunteer crops and supplies from the eastern two-and-a-half tribes  (Joshua 24:13). Israel’s tillage thus began in 1444.

Thirty jubilees after their entry into the Promised Land Israel murdered Messiah; now forty jubilees since redemption in Christ ended has brought us to the seventieth jubilee and the consummation of the Gentiles. Brother Branham said, “I sincerely believe and maintain as a private student of the Word, along with divine inspiration that 1977 ought to terminate the world systems and usher in the millennium” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:4).

Revelation 3:10, “Because you have kept the Word of My patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.” This verse is not a declaration that the true Church will go into and through the tribulation. If it meant that it would have said that. But it said, “I will keep thee from the hour of temptation.” This temptation is exactly like the temptation in Eden. It will be a very inviting proposition held up in direct opposition to God’s commanded Word, and yet from the standpoint of human reasoning it will be so very right, so enlightening and life-giving as to fool the world” [II Thessalonians 2:11]. Only the very elect will not be fooled [Revelation 13:8]. The temptation will come as follows. The ecumenical move that has started on what seems such a beautiful and blessed principle (fulfilling Christ’s prayer that we all might be one) becomes so strong politically that she bears pressure upon the government to cause all to join with her either directly or through adherence to principles enacted into law so that no people will be recognized as actual churches unless under direct or indirect domination of this council. Little groups will lose charters, privileges, etc., until they lose all property and spiritual rights with the people.”

“For example, right now unless the local ministerial association approves in many, if not most cities, one cannot rent a building for religious services. To become chaplains in the armed services, hospitals, etc., it is now almost mandatory to be recognized as acceptable to the trinitarian ecumenical groups. As this pressure increases, and it will, it will be harder to resist, for to resist is to lose privilege. And so many will be tempted to go along, for they will feel it is better to serve God publicly in the framework of this organization than not to serve God at all publicly. But they err. To believe the Devil’s lie is to serve Satan, even though you may want to call him Jehovah. But the elect will not be deceived.”

“Furthermore, the elect will not only be kept, but as this move becomes the “IMAGE ERECTED TO THE BEAST,” the saints will be gone in the rapture. And this little delightful, winsome movement that started out in fellowship at Ephesus will become the monster of Satan that defiles and deceives the whole world. For the church system of the Roman Catholic and the Protestant in coming together will control the whole wealth of the world system and force the whole earth into its religious trap, or will kill them, by refusing them the privilege of buying and selling whereby they would make a living. This will be accomplished simply, for the harlot’s daughters are all but gone back to her. In the meantime, Rome has acquired nearly all the supplies of gold. The Jews have the bonds and all the paper. At the right time, the harlot will destroy the present day money system by calling in all the paper, and demanding gold. With no gold, the system falls. The Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance, and the harlot church will take over the whole world” (Ibid, p. 313:2 – 314:1).

In calculating jubilees one must remember Israel was an agrarian economy, thus God’s appointed times of meeting with His people necessarily followed the harvest of the land, typing the harvest of souls. This harvest of the field is dependent upon the annual cycle of the S_U_N as the harvest of souls follows the dispensational cycle of the S_O_N. Since the Great Flood the years are no longer composed of twelve 30-day months so Israel’s calendar was necessarily adjusted every second or third year by extending the twelfth month; nowadays by the addition of a thirteenth month, otherwise God’s compulsory annual feasts would not fall on the appointed seasons.

We follow the S_O_N’S prophetic years of 360 days and duration rather than succession of years and chronological dates: to kairoV (kairos) seasons or dispensations—definitely limited portions of time in which to grasp ‘opportunities’ by making the right decisions, rather than with cronoV (chronos) time, the course of time in general. But to establish datum posts we will commence our study with a day-by-day timeline from the birth of the Israel nation.

Brother Branham was speaking of 1977 as the sum of a duration of jubilee years, not the product of a succession of years and chronological dates which is why he said “I predict, I do not prophesy.” He provided the ‘clue’ but he was not permitted to directly explain the ‘third pull,’ which can only be known by revelation. We will consider chronos time in connection with Israel’s early years and God’s ideal for the nation. The sacred mathematics behind all of these times and seasons that God gave Israel through His prophet Moses have been in existence from the foundation of the world and did not spring up at Mount Sinai, for “the Word of God is forever settled in heaven” and since He is omniscient He can never change His ways (Psalm 119:89; Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8).

Day 1, Nisan 1, 1491BC, New Year’s Day in Israel’s sacred calendar, Exodus 12:2, “This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

Day 10-14, Exodus 12:2-6: On the tenth day each man shall select a yearling male lamb for his paternal family, confine it four days to prove it is without blemish, then at twilight on the fourteenth of the month the whole congregation of Israel shall kill their lambs. A type of Jesus Christ who on His triumphal entry into Jerusalem was proclaimed “the Son of David” and implored “save us now.” His authority was questioned from Tuesday to Friday but proven by many parables. He was betrayed by Judas Iscariot, arrested and arraigned before the high priest, denied by Peter, questioned by the Sanhedrin, condemned to death by the whole congregation of Israel, found innocent by Pontius Pilate, yet crucified on the fourteenth of the month.

Day 15-21, Exodus 12:29-51, the first Passover meal initiated the seven days of Unleavened Bread “It came to pass the self-same day that the Lord brought the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies.” In Exodus 13:1-10, Moses prophesied that on Nisan 15 (the following year, God intended that) Israel observe their second Passover meal and the first day of their feast of Unleavened Bread on the border of the Promised Land. Deuteronomy 1:2 states “It is eleven day’s journey from Horeb by way of Mount Seir [Edom] to Kadesh-barnea [the boundary of Judah].” There the adult Israelites disbelieved God’s Word and were blotted from the Book of Life; not until forty years had passed would the new generation observe the feast of Passover in Canaan (Joshua 5:9 – 6:11).

Had Israel journeyed to the border of the Promised Land from Sinai in eleven days they would have crossed the Jordan to Jericho on Pentecost one-year after their arrival at Mount Sinai as God had intended.

Day 16, Leviticus 23:9-14, the feast of Firstfruits and the first day of the feast of Weeks or Pentecost.

Day 21, Exodus 13:17-21 and Numbers 33:1-8. It appears that the Israelites having passed through the Red Sea spent the holy convocation of the seventh day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread in Arabia (Exodus 2:15; 3:1, 12; Deuteronomy 1:2; Isaiah 11:15-16; Galatians 4:25).

Day 45, Exodus 16:1-36, when Israel reached the wilderness of Sin on the fifteenth day of the second month (Iyyar) they murmured and God sent manna and quail.

True location of Mt SinaiDay 61, 1491BC, Exodus 19:1, “In the third month after the children of Israel had gone forth from the land of Egypt, the same day they came into the wilderness of Sinai.” Mount Sinai is located in the Land of Midian, which is in Saudi Arabia and not as indicated on the map in your Bible, in the Sinai Peninsula which is in Egypt today as it was then (Exodus 2:15; 3:1; 12; Deuteronomy 1:2; 2:5; Isaiah 11:15-16; Ezekiel 35:2; Galatians 4:24-25). Now Moses ascended the mountain where God instructed him to command the people to sanctify themselves three days. Scripture indicates that God’s intent was to initiate a Pentecostal Jubilee of liberty to the children of Israel but because of their sin they received the Day of Atonement.

Day 64, Exodus 19:10 – 24:8, God recited the Ten Commandments then Moses wrote the statutes and judgments and read “the Book of the Covenant in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the Lord has said will we do, and be obedient. And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the Covenant, which the Lord has made with you concerning all these Words”.

Day 65-104, Exodus 24:9 – 32:29. The holy convocation of the fiftieth day of Pentecost is always the sixty-fifth day of the sacred year. From Day 64 to Day 71 “the glory of God” covered the Mount and on the seventh day Moses ascended into the Cloud and remained 33 more days in the Mount to receive the stone tables of Law and testimony and then descended to discover that Israel had broken its Covenant and was worshipping a golden calf.

Day 106, Exodus 32:30 – 34:2, 28. Moses ascended the Mount for a further forty days to hew two more tables of stone upon which God would engrave the Ten Commandments.

Day 146-147, Exodus 34:27-35, Moses descended and his face shone with the glory of God. The following day he began requisitioning materials from which to fabricate the Tabernacle and appointing master craftsmen chosen by the Lord.

Had Israel honoured God’s Covenant at Pentecost there would in theory have been no Day of Atonement, but the Lamb had to be killed and sin’s price met before He could impart His Life to the new creation of God-men. As Paul explained in Hebrews 11:39-40, “The Old Testament saints, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise [of eternal inheritance sealed by Christ’s sacrifice until His resurrection, having remitted their accumulated sins by cleansing the sanctuary with His own Blood]: God having provided some better thing for us [than they had in this world—remission of sins, regeneration and perfection in this life through new birth by faith of Jesus our KINSMAN who redeemed us all on Calvary] that apart from us they should not be made perfect [regenerated, glorified and complete]”  (Hebrews 12:1-2, 23; 9:15, 23; Romans 8:29-30). “When the Day of Pentecost was full come . . . having taken, and by wicked hands crucified and slain” Messiah, Israel rejected the Day of Pentecost a second time.

Day 361, Nisan 1, 1490BC. “And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up” and dedicated (Exodus 40:1-2, 17, 34; Numbers 1:1; 9:15-23). The Lord signified His abode by the Pillar of Fire as He would at the dedication of Solomon’s Temple (I Kings 8:11), at the baptism of His new Temple, our Lord Jesus (Matthew 3:16-17), at the inauguration of His Body the Church (Acts 2:3), and as He will over New Jerusalem in the renewed heavens and renewed earth (Revelation 21:23-24).

Day 410, Iyyar (second month) 20, 1490BC. The Pillar of Cloud was raised from the Tabernacle and Israel commenced a forty-day journey (Numbers 10:11).

Day 413-420, Numbers 10:33-36; after three day’s journey the Israelites complain about manna and the Lord sends quail thirty days (Numbers 11). Miriam and Aaron speak against Moses’ black second wife. The Lord smites Miriam with leprosy and the camp does not move for seven more days (Numbers 12); in total a 40-day delay to God’s intended program.

Day 425, God intended Israel to cross over into the Promised Land on Pentecost morning, departing Mount Sinai on Iyyar 20 and arriving on the Sivan 1, the anniversary of their arrival at Sinai the previous year. We know this because “eleven days” (Deuteronomy 1:2) is a precise number. This leads us to speculate three day’s sanctification before crossing the Jordan (as in Exodus 19:14-16, and ultimately Joshua 3:1-5; 4:19), exactly one year after the Sinai Covenant.

Day 450, Sivan (third month) 30, 1490BC Joshua sent twelve elders to spy out the land for forty days (Numbers 13:1-24).

Day 491, Spies return with an evil report (Numbers 13:25-33). The Lord God decrees, “Your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcasses are wasted in the wilderness. After the number of the days in which you searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall you bear your iniquities, even forty years, and you shall know My breach of promise.” Israel then presumed to enter the Promised Land and was defeated by the Amalekites and Canaanites (Numbers 14:1, 25, 33-34, 40-45).

Day 541, Tishri 1, 1490BC. Feast of Trumpets, later Civil New Year’s Day, Ross Hashanah (Leviticus 23:23-25; Numbers 29:1-6).

Day 550, Tishri 10, 1490BC. The Day of Atonement (Leviticus 16; 23:26-32; Numbers 29:7-11). On this day jubilee was proclaimed every 49 years (Leviticus 25:8-55; 27:17-24). Jubilee cycles were intended to commence from this date, but because of unbelief they were delayed forty more years until 1451BC (Numbers 14:33-34).

Day 555-562, Tishri 15, 1490. The Feast of Tabernacles commemorates the journey from Egypt to Canaan wherein Israel dwelt in tents and recalls with thanks the produce on the trees when they had entered Canaan. The Eighth day of the feast was a special Sabbath, signifying eternity in the renewed heavens and renewed earth (Exodus 23:16b; 34:22b; Leviticus 23:33-36, 39-43; Numbers 29:12-38; Deuteronomy 16:13-15. These calculations are based upon Scripture and the 360-day prophetic calendar.

The unbelieving adults that came out of Egypt in the exodus on Nisan 15, 1491BC perished over forty years in the wilderness because they had rejected the Holy Spirit at Kadesh-barnea. The new generation of Israelites crossed over Jordan to the Promised Land on Nisan 10, 1451BC (Joshua 3:12-17; 4:19). God said, “Speak to the children of Israel, and tell them, When you come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the Lord(Leviticus 25:2). “The children of Israel encamped in Gilgal, and kept the Passover on Nisan 14 at evening in the plains of Jericho. And they ate of the old corn of the land on the morrow after the Passover, unleavened cakes, and parched corn in the selfsame day. And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land and parched corn in the selfsame day . . . they ate the fruit of the land of Canaan [not manna] that year” (Joshua 5:9-12).

Interjecting you will recall Paul’s warning, “Never forget that although our fathers were all under the Cloud, and all passed through the sea, and as followers of Moses were baptized in the cloud and in the sea, and all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink, for they drank of the spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. Nevertheless God was displeased with most of them; for they were overthrown in the wilderness. These things occurred as examples for us that we may not lust after evil as they lusted” (I Corinthians 10:1-6).

Taken in conjunction with figures Brother Branham revealed we see these borderline believers as a shadow and type of those who “came OUT of her” but did not “come into the unity of the faith” (Revelation 18:4; Ephesians 4:13). “Once enlightened having tasted of the heavenly gift and made sharers of the Holy Ghost, they felt how good the Word of God is and the mighty powers of the world to come,” and having followed the Message in this ‘third exodus’ right up to the border of the eternal land of the millennium whither we are destined, they disbelieved God’s Promise (Hebrews 6:4-6).

30 Jubilees x 49 = 1470 years from Leviticus 25:8 to Calvary
40 Jubilees x 49 = 1960 years from Pentecost, leaving 17 years to 1977
70 Jubilees x 49 = 3430 years
1977 + 40 years =

Forty is universally recognized as an important number, both on account of the frequency of its occurrence, and the uniformity of its association with a period of probation, trial, and the chastisement of sons, and of a Covenant people). It is the product of 5 and 8, and points to the action of grace (5), leading to and ending in revival and renewal (8). This is certainly the case where forty relates to a period of evident probation. But where it relates to enlarged dominion, or to renewed or extended rule, then it does so in virtue of its factors 4 and 10, and in harmony with their signification. (See Number in Scripture).

God declared a sabbath for the land for the remaining six months of “that year” from Nisan 10, 1451 to the beginning of the Civil New Year on Tishri 10, 1451 wherein the land was to lay fallow—its spontaneous produce common property of the poor, the stranger, cattle and wild game. Israel was at liberty to consume the abandoned storehouses and to pick the ripening wheat crop but not to sow until the commencement of the New Civil Year. Thereafter they could plant and harvest Tishri-to-Tishri, commencing Tishri 1451BC. Every seventh year was a sabbatical year running Nisan-to-Nisan (March or April). The year of Jubilee was announced at the close of the Day of Atonement in the forty-ninth year of the week of years. This fiftieth year ran from Tishri 10 (September or October) that year to Tishri 10 in the first year of the succeeding sabbatical cycle of forty-nine years. These weeks of years commenced when the children of Israel entered Canaan in 1451BC (Leviticus 25:1-22). The forty-ninth year of the first Cycle was Nisan 1, 1404BC to Nisan 1, 1403BC, and the first Jubilee (or fiftieth) Year was Tishri 10, 1404BC to Tishri 10, 1403BC.

locating the 50th or jubilee yearThis diagram (copyright©E.C. Gedge) illustrates how the fiftieth or jubilee year is not cronoV (chronos) time but kairoV (kairos) time that overlies the calendar years from Tishri 10 in forty-ninth year (four months and twenty days) to Tishri 9 (seven months and ten days of the first year of the next cycle forty-nine year. The red band at the foot of the forty-ninth year indicates that it is a sabbatical year from Nisan 1 to Nisan 1. All years in the forty-nine year cycles run from Nisan 1 to Nisan 1. Our Pentecostal Jubilee will be the waving of Christ’s end-time Bride as two wheaten loaves baked with leaven in the manifestation of the Sons of God while the Church Age saints are being resurrected in their glorified bodies prior to our translation.

Brother Branham’s end-time Message is our “former” or “teaching rain,” the “midnight cry” of Matthew 25:6, the “shout” of I Thessalonians 4:16 that called us OUT from Rome and her apostate (once) Protestant daughter churches to meet the Bridegroom (Revelation 10:1-4; 18:4) and be filled with the Spirit. The elect wise and non-elect foolish virgins each heard the call, recognized truth and came out. Like philanderers the foolish virgins are not wholly separated unto Christ. James 4:4, “You [spiritual] adulterers and adulteresses, don’t you know that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”

“The old man” is not dead, he is dominant: they are adulteresses. “The Voice of the Archangel” Jesus Christ can’t whisper His amours to a paramour. Worldly pursuits and sinner companions preponderate over the soul, allowing no intimacy with Jesus.

The “former rain” of the “shout and Voice of the Archangel,” is Christ’s love-making, communicating intimate secrets that will draw two hearts into one mind. When the Seventh or Great Trumpet sounds the “latter” or “harvest rain” will strike the world; it will fall upon the just and the unjust, sinner and saint, bringing the seed sown into men’s hearts to manifest what has been planted, cultivated, and watered. All decisions will have been made: “He who is unjust will be unjust still: he who is filthy will be filthy still: the righteous will be righteous: and he who is holy will remain holy” (Revelation 22:11). Christ’s end-time Bride will manifest that they are the Sons of God, and the foolish virgins will be martyred.

Brother Branham said, “Now, there will come another year of Jubilee and that, we’ve had it just about this time. If you noticed, Pentecost has been falling in America for about fifty years, somewhere on that time. Just about fifty years ago Pentecost begin to fall. Now, what’s happening, the church is receiving the Seven Sealed Book of “The Revelation of Jesus Christ” of the Seven Seals and not one tenth of them can receive it.”

[Not so many as a tithe of Message followers are able to receive the revelation of the Prophet’s Message].

“But when you begin to see the year of Jubilee, where we don’t have to fuss and strain and pull like this, but we’re already secured in Christ . . . What a beautiful story . . . I want to get these Seventy Weeks of Daniel and tie it right in here, and show it where it takes it to the Pentecostal Jubilee, and brings it right back with those Seven Seals to opened here just before we go, and show that it’s at the end” (Revelation, Chapter Five, #II, p. 779:181-182, 216; The Feast of the Trumpets, p. 29:226-246).

Students of the Message understand that Christ’s end-time Bride was accounted caught up with the sleeping saints of all Ages at the close of Laodicea (Revelation 4:1). Being predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word by the revelation of the mysteries of the Seven Thunders we were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary and do not require mediation for ignorance of “that which is perfect [or complete]” (I Corinthians 13:10). We were each present in our angel or celestial body—the theophany of our glorified likeness as witnesses to the heavenly transaction when Christ claimed the Title Deed to redemption and opened the Seals (Revelation 5:5-12).

The Jubilee for Christ’s Bride is a Pentecostal Jubilee: by grace through faith we received our Day of Atonement in Christ as Attributes of the Logos or Word and are accounted crucified in Him on Calvary (II Corinthians 5:13-21; Colossians 3:3-4). “Jesus Messiah was delivered for our offences, and raised again for our justification” (Romans 4:25). He paid the supreme penalty: as Attributes of the Word we were in Him then; we paid for our sins in Christ on Calvary and when He was justified and raised we were justified and raised in Him. “And as it is appointed once to die” there is no double jeopardy (Hebrews 9:27). He who is born-again is free from sin. Oh, you will make mistakes, but you will not sin because sin is unbelief in the revealed Word of God, and you are the Word for your age manifest (I John 1:7).

I John 3:6, 9, “Whosoever abides in Him does not sin: whosoever sins has not seen Him, neither known Him . . . Whoever is born of God does not commit sin; for His seed remains in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God” (I Peter 2:21-25).

Romans 8:1-3, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the Law of sin and death. For what the Law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh.” Hence you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done (John 15:7). nl924.htm

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 923

“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; it is so good to see you again.

The news items this week show once again how incurably corrupt the once Christian nations have become. The pale horse rider has an immense following yet multitudes are impatiently gathering for the one way Revelation 6:8 ride to perdition.

Our main article completes a three-part exposition on “Shadows and Types,” today focusing upon Israel’s historical feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and feast of Tabernacles on which learned men of God have penned volumes. Our objective was to compare the natural types with the spiritual antitypes demonstrating the simplicity of God’s Word and providing a means whereby you can make faith sure by the Absolute of God’s unchanging Word to confirm the present Truth”.

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.

On Europe and ‘the Faith’

Papal Logo

May 1, 2016 — In September 2015 Ronald S. Lauder, the head of the World Jewish Council, said that “never in the past 2,000 years have relations between the Catholic Church and the Jewish people been so good . . . Pope Francis . . . His clear and unequivocal support for the Jewish people is critical to us.” A prostrating Pontiff, overseeing millions of compliant Catholics worldwide, is indeed critical to Jewish interests.

Francis may be seen as the perfect culmination of the Second Vatican Council, which was orchestrated by Jewish converts to Catholicism and annihilated the remaining power of the Catholic Church as a force for European culture. The poisonous seeds have given rise to a truly rotten tree, or in the interpretation of Francis himself: “The Council, with the declaration Nostra Aetate, paved the way. It said yes to the rediscovery of the Jewish roots of Christianity, and no to any form of anti-Semitism and condemnation of any insult, discrimination and persecution derived from that.”

Not only a traitor to the European race, Francis is either intellectually insipid or a disingenuous cretin. In January this man, who claims to be God’s emissary on earth, argued that “Europe has the means to absorb refugees without sacrificing its security or culture.” The Holy Father was presumably here referring to the thefts, rapes, bombs and deaths that have illustrated the remarkable success the Continent has met with thus far in preserving its culture and security in the face of mass foreign incursion . . .” Full story: theoccidentalobserver.net

Comment: Multiculturalism is the original sin and accursed from Genesis to Revelation (Genesis 1:11; 25; Matthew 24:37; Genesis 6:1-4). Christianity has NO “Jewish” roots, the Bible is NOT a Jewish Book, the modern word ‘Jew‘ did not enter any Bible in any language until the latter part of the 19th century, and a miniscule percentage of their number are related to Jacob or even Semitic.

America and NATO’s Outrageous Behavior, Greatest Threat that Exists

May 20, 2016 — On May 18th, two top people at NATO, one being its current Secretary General—the very top person—laid out in preliminary form the case for war against Russia, which presumably will be presented in more detail at the NATO Summit to be held in Poland on 8-9 July this year.

As if that weren’t bad enough, there’s the matter reported by Bryan Cloughly at Strategic Culture, headlining on May 19th, “Surging Towards yet Another War,” where he pointed out that:

“The United States has no territorial rights of any sort, in the South China Sea which is 7,000 miles (11,000 kilometres) from its west coast. There is nothing in international law that justifies its unilateral military ‘challenge’ to China’s presence” there, in that area which is contested between five countries: China, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Brunei. The American government, which has no authority to speak for the entire world regarding international law—of which the US itself has been perhaps the most frequent violator during the past 16 years—isn’t “policeman of the world,” certainly not judge and jury and executioner (well, maybe executioner) of the world, but instead it’s merely an aspiring global thug: “The Pentagon declared on 10 May that China’s ‘excessive maritime claims are inconsistent with international law as reflected in the Law of the Sea Convention in that they purport to restrict the navigation rights that the United States and all states are entitled to exercise’.” Cloughly points out the US “refuses to ratify the Law of the Sea Convention—while ordering every other country to abide by it.”

America’s—and NATO’s—biggest danger to the world, however, is its (their) aggressions against Russia . . .

USA: How to make them give a Damn?

May 12, 2016 — In a report published in the American journal, National Security News, on May 9th, the day of the celebration of the victory of Soviet and allied forces over the fascist forces in 1945, it was stated that, “in terms of the eastern threat—which is a reference to Russia-EUCOM (the American Forces European Command) will be moving from a training to a war fighting stance.”

The article continues, “this does not mean that the US is planning a war with Russia, merely that it will shift its force structure in a manner aimed at deterring Moscow and defending NATO and European partners should Russian President Vladimir Putin attempt what he has done in Ukraine” . . . What are the wars in Ukraine, in Syria, the destruction of Yugoslavia and Libya, but a part of the [US] war against Russia? . . . “The United States quite simply doesn’t give a damn about the United Nations, international law or critical dissent, which it regards as impotent and irrelevant.” “How to make them give a damn,” [Harold Pinter] once asked me, “before they kill us all?” . . .

America’s Outrageous Ultimatum: Syria as the Libya of the Levant

President Al Assad

May 7, 2016 — How the United States presumes to possess the authority to determine the fate of a sovereign nation thousands of miles from its own shores in the Middle East is never explained by [Jewish] US Secretary of State John Kerry when he recently announced a new ultimatum levelled at Damascus. Nor is it explained why Syria should capitulate to US demands to begin a political transition that has demonstrably left other nations across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) divided, destroyed, and safe-havens for state-sponsored terrorism years after “successful” US-backed regime change has been achieved–Libya most notably . . . “Kerry warns Assad to start transition by August 1 or else,” the United States fully expects Damascus to concede to a “political transition” engineered by Washington, leaving the nation in the hands of verified terrorists linked directly to the political and militant forces currently laying waste to Libya and those nations that put them into power . . . America essentially demands Syria’s surrender to Al Qaeda . . .

From Golden Dollar to Petro Dollar to Narco Dollar

May 9, 2016 — The role as world reserve currency is something no financial hegemon in history has willingly surrendered. It took two world wars for the City of London and Bank of England to reluctantly concede hegemony of the Pound Sterling to the Dollar. As Henry Kissinger is said to have remarked decades ago, “If you control the money, you can control the entire world.” Whether or not Kissinger ever said that publicly, he and his patron, David Rockefeller, certainly believed it. Now, with US government debt shooting past $19 trillion and the true state of the American economy and its infrastructure at its worst since the Great Depression, with most Americans living on the brink of financial disaster, the brilliant financial engineers of Wall Street and Washington have once again come up with a scheme to prolong the role of Dollar as King in the world economy . . . the way is clear to make the USA the new Switzerland or Panama. Drug cartels of the world are already clearly informed and a good share of the estimated $1.6 trillion of criminal funds annually are searching new safe havens in Reno and other US hot money havens. From a golden dollar to a petro dollar to now a narco dollar. It’s pretty pathetic for the country that was once the world’s leading industrial technology leader. Full story: journal-neo.org

Comment: In place of humiliating Russia, the “economic war” Washington and Brussels promoted was counterproductive . . . Moscow and Beijing have decided to put an end to the domination of the dollar in fixing the prices of the black gold. The petroyuan . . . promises to facilitate the transition to a multi-polar monetary system . . . that takes various currencies into account and reflects the correlation of forces in the current world order.


None dare call it Conspiracy

Jewish traitor and fascist dictator President F. D. Roosevelt said, “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.” He was in a good position to know: he was very much behind World War II.

“When you think about it, there are only two theories of history. Either things happen by accident neither planned nor caused by anybody, or they happen because they are planned and somebody causes them to happen. In reality it is the “accidental theory of history” preached in the unhallowed Halls of Ivy which should be ridiculed . . . Why is it that virtually all “reputable” scholars and mass media columnists and commentators reject the cause and effect or conspiratorial theory of history” (Gary Allen, None Dare Call it Conspiracy, p. 8-9)?

A plan for world conquest was addressed to Giuseppe Mazzini in a letter by Albert Pike dated August 15, 1871 stating that three world wars would prepare the world for the New World Order. World Wars I and II followed the military blueprints; the ongoing World War III is unfolding the plan disclosed 145 years ago. Bible believers know that seven years after peace is restored “the greatest social cataclysm the world has ever known” will produce Armageddon and the consummation of life. Full story: Episode 6.

Our Sick Society eagerly creates Sick Children

May 21, 2016 — It’s an all out assault on future generations. There is no sense in raising decent children only to participate in a dishonorable society.

Zionist logoZPG, they called it. Zero Population Growth. The argument made sense, so the movement caught on. Too many people in the world, they said. It made sense to limit the number of children we had, or not to have any at all. Trouble is, it was a Jew scam, aimed at depleting the labor pools of the high-tech countries in order to replace the absent population caused by abortion and birth control with low-tech immigrants who could be more easily trained as suitable slaves in the Jewish master plan to control the whole world.

You see the punchline today—Jews saying we need to import Muslims to compensate for our flagging birth rate.

While the program might have been a good idea in China or India, whose streets remain chronically clogged with starving beggars, that’s not where it was implemented. ZPG never reached Africa or the Islamic world, whose burgeoning birth rates have now turned out to be a death sentence for the highly developed Western nations, where problematic labor shortages are about to be solved by a pre-planned influx of unskilled Third World immigrants who relish the irony of being supported by a government funded by the very people who are being exterminated.

A totalitarian government desires stupid citizens it can manipulate into carrying out its evil ends. Today, in addition to flooding developed countries with naive and exploitable immigrants, a master plan of reducing the health and intelligence of its own children is well underway.

A similar scam occurred around the turn of the century—from the 19th to the 20th, that is—when our friendly media manipulators, in the frightening form of Jewish suffrage groups . . . Full story: therebel.is

Monsanto and the Poisoning of Europe

May 18, 2016 — This week, a Standing Committee of plant scientists from 28 member states in Europe is likely to endorse the European Food Safety Authority’s (EFSA) findings so that the European Commission (under pressure from Monsanto, Glyphosate Task Force and others) can re-authorise glyphosate for another nine years. This is despite the WHO classifying glyphosate as being “probably carcinogenic” to humans . . .

Last year, Arthur Nelson noted that as many as 31 pesticides with a value running into billions of pounds could have been banned in the EU because of potential health risks, if a blocked EU paper on hormone-mimicking chemicals had been acted upon. A study by Sebastian Stehle and Ralph Schultz found 44.7% of 1,566 cases of measured insecticide concentrations (MICs) in EU surface waters exceeded their respective regulatory acceptable concentrations. The meta-analysis challenges the efficacy of the regulatory environmental risk assessment conducted for pesticide authorisation in the EU.

Our food and agriculture system is in big trouble . . . because the global agritech/agribusiness sector is poisoning it, us and the environment with its pesticides, herbicides, GMOs and various other chemical inputs . . . made possible because of the agro-chemical industry’s lavish funds, massive lobbying, slick PR, compliant politicians and scientists and its undermining and capture of regulatory and policy decision-making bodies that supposedly serve the public interest.

The situation in the US is possibly even worse and with TTIP on the horizon, Europeans could be in line for exposure to even more chemicals . . . 34,000 pesticides are currently registered . . . in the US. Drinking water is often contaminated by pesticides, and more babies are being born with preventable birth defects due to pesticide exposure. Chemicals show up in breast milk of mothers. Illnesses are on the rise too, including asthma, autism and learning disabilities, birth defects and reproductive dysfunction, diabetes, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases and several types of cancer. The link with pesticide exposure is becoming increasingly evident . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca


China plans to become GMO Giant

May 8, 2016 — President Xi Jinping and his Prime Minister, Li Keqiang . . . have decided to make China a world leader in . . . GMO and the related highly toxic (to humans) pesticides and herbicides . . . for the world, a major blow. In November, China National Chemical Corporation (ChemChina) made a failed bid to buy the Swiss-based Syngenta, the world’s largest crop chemical pesticide and herbicide producer with 19 percent of the world market . . . sanctioning the ChemChina bid to become a “global player” in . . . population reduction . . .

The claim that GMO seeds and their paired chemical weed-killers such as Monsanto Roundup or Chinese-produced glyphosate copies of that will ever improve crop yield on “marginal soils” is worse than an error . . . either total ignorance of documented USA and other GMO planting experience, which documents a drop in yield and an inevitable rise in required chemicals required for weed and pest control . . . Or . . . something immoral . . .

This September, Russia’s government announced it had approved a total ban on planting of any GMO crops in Russia. President Putin followed the decision with a speech in which he said the GMO ban will allow Russia to become a foremost world exporter of healthy, natural food crops. And this year, two-thirds of the 28-member EU states, including Germany and France, opted for a ban of GMO planting under new Brussels “opt-out” rules . . . Full story: journal-neo.org


Shadows and Types – Part III

The first of Israel’s three great annual feasts spoke, in the presentation of the first sheaf, of the founding of the Church; the second, in the presentation of two leavened wave-loaves signifying the finished Church, Christ’s Bride of all Ages. The third will speak, in the presentation the fruit of the fig tree: 144,000 elect Israelites born as a nation in one day to serve as the attendants of Christ’s Bride.

Leviticus 23:23-32, “And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no servile work therein: but you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.

“And on the tenth day of the seventh month there shall be a Day of Atonement: it shall be a holy convocation unto you; and you shall afflict your souls [fast], and offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord. And you shall do no work in that same day: for it is a Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the Lord your God. Whatever soul that shall not be afflicted in that same day, shall be cut off from among His people. And whatever soul that does any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people. You shall do no manner of work: this shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. It will be a sabbath of rest to you, and you will afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, you shall celebrate your sabbath”.

Israel crestIndolent satisfaction with a second-hand religion induced blind apostasy upon God’s servant nation Israel by Talmudic indoctrination “that makes the Word of God of none effect” (Isaiah 8:20; Matthew 15:1-9). Israel is the enemy of God and the Gospel for our sakes, so that “the blessing of Abraham might come on us Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith” (Galatians 3:14). God ceased dealing with unbelieving Israel; now He is ending His dealings with unbelieving Gentiles (Romans 11; II Timothy 4:3-4). All denominations are apostate; Christ fulfilled His Mediation as Son of God, claimed the Book and resumed the prophetic office Son of man as King of kings and Judge (John 5:27; Revelation 5).

In Revelation 3:15-20 Jesus rebuked today’s laid-back careless, care-less church, “You are neither cold nor hot . . . because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. You say, ‘I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,’ when you are morally wretched and miserable, spiritually bankrupt, blind to the faith, naked of the Blood, and know it not.” Verse 20 shows Christ put out of the churches that bear His Name.

WORD BrideIn 1964 the Lord showed Brother Branham a vision of the true vine and the false vine. “I didn’t see the person. It was just a Voice” . . . He said, “The Bride will come in view for preview.”

“And I looked coming to me, and I seen the most prettiest bunch of clean-dressed women I ever seen in my life. But each one of them, looked like, was dressed different. They all had long hair, and they were . . . longer sleeves and skirts and so forth, young women . . . They looked kind of, I’d say about, maybe, twenty.”

“But when this Bride . . . She was looking right at . . . (The one was talking to me, and I standing together.) Her eyes . . . She was the cleanest, sweetest looking people I ever seen in my life. Look like it could been a dozen or more, just . . . I don’t know how many was abreast, but there was just a group of them. And She passed by, sweetly with a air, and her eyes up, watching as She passed by. Oh, She was beautiful. I looked at her.”

“And as She passed by, he said, “That’s the Bride. Now, we will review the churches.” And they come. I noticed them coming up. And when they come up, each one, look like, got worse. I never seen such a filthy bunch in my life. And when he said, “Next . . .” I heard a noise. And it said, “Next,” said, “here comes the American group.”

“Now, I am an American, but this just made me sick. I am not eloquent enough to, in a mixed audience, to say what was taking place; you’ll have to read between the lines. But when the women were coming, the leader of them was a witch. She had a great long nose and a great big mouth. And all of them was dressed with some kind of lower clothes down here, but the top just had a strap that just a little, about half inch strap that moved up and went around them like this. And each woman had something on the order . . . Many of you, years ago used to . . . Remember, when we used to cut that paper, you know, newspaper, and make an old fly-brush?”

“How many remembers it? You know. Why, I think you used it in carnivals, you know. Hanging down like that, fringed paper, lace paper. They had something holding below them, like this, holding below them. All of this part was exposed. And each one had hair cut up real short and frizzy-looking things all over it like that, real short cut hair, and full of makeup: absolutely nothing but looked like street prostitutes. And they were walking with this paper. And the vulgarity . . . Now, the paper was what was hold in front of them; but when they passed the review stand, in the back of them . . . And to see the way they were going on in their foremost and their back part, and how they were acting . . . I thought, “Is that the church?”

“And there she went. And they were singing this here twist-and-roll songs, you know, ever what you call, going down, singing like, going behind . . . I said, “Is that the church?” And I was standing there. And in my heart I was crying. And this witch . . . To my notion it’s nothing else in the world, but she’s that World Council of Churches leading them right straight down the road where she was going. They went off to the left and disappeared in chaos, still beating this music and making real funny sounds, and shaking their bodies one side and then the other side, and then like that, carrying on like that, walking.”

“And I just started to bow my head, and he said, “Wait, the Bride must come again.” And I looked, and here they come again. And they passed by, sweet-looking little ladies. They was all looking right at me as they passed by. And I noticed each one was dressed different. And one in the back had kinda long hair hanging down and had it rolled around like this, might been German or something like that. And I watched them. And then, as they started leaving, two or three of them in the back . . . get out of step. And I was going to holler at them, and they was trying to get back in step again. And I seen them just—the vision just fade out and change from me.”

“Now, here is the interpretation thereof: . . . Now, remember. I had just got through writing . . . I hadn’t finished; I hadn’t wrote these notes yet. But in preaching this morning, I caught what it was right in my sermon . . . And not knowing it till just a few minutes ago . . . See? Did you notice the Bride come in view twice? The first Seed and the second Seed, both of them exactly the same one. And the reason they were dressed in different parts, she’ll come from all nations; it’ll make up the Bride. Each one had long hair and no makeup, and real pretty girls. And they were watching me. That represented the Bride coming out of all nations. Each one represented a nation, as they marched perfectly in line with the Word. See?

“And then, I have to watch Her. She’ll get out of step with that Word if I don’t watch when she’s passing by, if she gets by. Maybe it’ll be my time when I’m over (See?), when I’m finished, or whatever it is.”

“Watch. They was getting back, trying their best. They was getting back; they was getting in line, ’cause they was looking out somewhere else, watching about that church that just went into chaos. But two . . . The front ones never. The back ones—just two or three of them, was kinda stepped out a little bit to the right-hand side, and looked like was trying to get back in line as they went by. They was just passing me, oh, far as here to the wall, passing me. I was standing there. And then I just seen them all just move out and leave.”

“But you notice, the church only came into view once, each nation, the church. But the Bride come in twice. See? See what it was? Now, not knowing it, but look at it with my Message this morning, not knowing that. See?”

“The Seed fell in the ground at Nicaea. That was the original seed. And She’s come through the process of these denominations which only comes in existence once. But the Bride returns back again in the last days: “I will restore.” See? The Masterpiece is brought up. That’s the reason She was in view—reviewed the second time. She was reviewed the first time; then she was reviewed the second time. And She’s perfectly the second time like She was the first time. Oh, God, have mercy. Hurry, hurry, hurry. Life, get in the Grain right quick.”

“All others never appeared no more. They went out never to come back again. But the Bride came back, ’cause She was Alpha and Omega. God, the Great Sculptor, has made Him a Masterpiece, for it is a piece of His first Masterpiece. Like He made in the Garden of Eden and took a piece from and made another piece and that was marred and fell; now He’s been all this time building it up again. And He brought forth this Masterpiece, and was smitten in order—that Part that was smitten was in order to bring back again that Masterpiece again.”

“So the Masterpiece and the Son of God—the Masterpiece and the Bride . . . And it’s a piece of Him, which must be the fulfilling of the Word. The Word has been fulfilled, and we’re ready for the Coming of the Lord” (The Masterpiece, p. 33:187-199).

Hosea 4, 5 and 6 prophesy in type how the northern Kingdom of Israel, then Judah, would apostatise from Yahweh Torah to the worship of the Babylonian trinity which non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews introduced into Christendom at the First Nicaea Council in AD325 where the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church organized as Jesus prophesied in Revelation 2. For their whoredom the Lord God dispersed the Kingdom of Israel, sent Nebuchadnezzar to transport the Judeans to a lifetime of captivity, destroyed His Temple, and placed Jerusalem under Gentile dominion till the consummation of life.

The trinity is “the mark of the beast.” In the next few years the United States and her (once) Protestant daughters will unite church and state under Rome and force trinitarianism on pain of death (Revelation 13:15-18).

The following history shows how natural Israel and Judah type the natural or false vine church. Hosea 5:8 – 6:-11, “Blow the horn in Gibeah, and the trumpet in Ramah: Sound an alarm at Bethaven, behind you, Benjamin. Ephraim will become a desert in the day of rebuke and what I declare concerning the tribes of Israel is sure”.

In the Spirit God’s judgment is seen as already inflicted. The arrival of the enemy is announced in the form of an injunction to blow an alarm from the lofty heights of Gibeah and Ramah in Benjamin whose allotment on Judah’s the northern border signifies the whole of the southern Kingdom. Thus Judah is already menaced and Ephraim/Israel, which adjoins Benjamin on the north, is already occupied. Ephraim is hopelessly impenitent; Israel is to be destroyed and her people exiled within the ancient Assyrian and Babylonian Empires till the Lord gathers them to the Land of the Covenant in the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week.

“The princes of Judah are like those who move the boundary: I will pour out My wrath upon them like water. Ephraim is oppressed, crushed in judgment, because he determined to follow human statutes [in contrast to the ordinances of God, alluding to Jeroboam’s commandment to worship the calves at Dan and Bethel (II Kings 10:28-33; Acts 5:29)]”.

By joining with Israel in idolatry Judah broke down the barriers between Jehovah and the idols and is subject to the curse of Deuteronomy 27:17. Ahaz and his courtiers introduced an idolatrous altar from Damascus (II Kings 16:10-18); also he burnt his children in the valley of Hinnom after the abominations of the heathen (II Chronicles 28:3). God’s anger will seize upon them like a full stream of water.

“Therefore I am like a moth [slowly devouring] Ephraim, [the ten tribes, as a garment], and as rottenness [which slowly consumes the body] to the house of Judah. When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah his wound, then Ephraim went to Assyria. [First, Menahem (II Kings 15:19) applied to Pul (Tiglath-pileser III); and again, Hoshea went to Shalmaneser (II Kings 17:3)], and [Judah] applied to his contender, Tiglath-pileser for aid against Syria and Israel (II Kings 16:7,8; II Chronicles 28:16-21); but Assyria could not heal you, nor cure you of your wound.”

“For I will be like a lion to Ephraim, and like a young lion to the house of Judah: I, even I, will tear to pieces and return to my lair; I will carry away, and there will be none to deliver him. I will go away and return to My place [and withdraw My favour] till they acknowledge their offence, and seek My face: in their affliction [the great tribulation] they will seek Me earnestly [after the midst of Daniel’s Seventieth Week and the martyrdom and resurrection of their ‘Moses and Elijah’]”.

God states emphatically that they can as little defend themselves from His judgments as they can from an attack by lions. And as the lion, without fear of being attacked, withdraws into his lair so the Lord withdraws into heaven; none can or dare call Him to account until they make expiation. 2,700 years of suffering will drive an election of 144,000 to God.

Hosea 6:1-3 prophesies the happy termination of Israel’s punishment for unbelief under the Seven Trumpet Judgments through 2,000 years of the Gentile dispensation to the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet in Daniel’s Seventieth Week.

“Come, and let us return to the Lord: for He has torn, and He will heal us; He has smitten, and He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us: in the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live in His sight. Then shall we know if we follow on to know the Lord: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He will come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth”.

We know from Psalm 90:4 and II Peter 3:8 that “one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” Hosea was prophesying in about 780BC, and we are speaking and listening in AD2016. As 780 + 2,016 = 2,796 is well “after two days” we live in “the third day wherein the Lord will raise up 144,000 elect Israelites to live in His sight,” favour and Presence with eternal Life (Revelation 14:1-5).

Like a lion the Lord tore and scattered apostate Israel but now the Gentiles are apostate. His Prophet has called the wise and foolish virgins OUT from Rome and her daughter churches that cannot see that God’s Name is Lord Jesus Christ, and He is now poised to revive Israel. But He cannot deal simultaneously with His servants holding to the Old Covenant and His Wife under the New Covenant. So as Joseph dismissed his servants and sent his wife and children into the Palace before he revealed himself to his brethren, His Bride of all Ages must be resurrected and translated to the Palace for the Wedding Supper in the Air before His two prophets can introduce Christ’s second or (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel.

Hosea 4:6 prophesied, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you, that you shall be no priest to Me. As you have forgotten the Law of your God, I will also forget your children.” Thus the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel became an unknown and strange God to the pagan Israelite idolaters twisted by Talmudic and Jewish fables. But if they press on He will bring Spiritual Light by the rain of the Holy Spirit quickening understanding through the ministration of the two Hebrew prophets (Zechariah 4; Matthew 17:1-8; 24:31; Acts 1:10-11; Revelation 11). Then “the eyes of their understanding being enlightened they will know what is the hope of His calling, and the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints [and] receive the Gift of the Spirit” (Acts 2:38-39; Ephesians 1:18).

Contrary to popular belief the Israelites have not yet returned to the Promised Land (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:14; 27:12-13; 49:17; Jeremiah 3:12-18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 37:1-28; 39:27-28; Micah 5:3; 2:12-13; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31). “For fear of the Jews” they dare not return until Israel’s defeat in the ‘hot stage’ of World War III triggers the exodus of Edomite and Khazar self-styled Jews (Zechariah 14:2). God cannot deal with Israel until the Church goes Home, and in order to “return to the Lord” the Israelites must return to Israel for their Covenant is of no effect outside the land of the Covenant.

Their resolve to return to Zion with penitent weeping will strengthen under the exigencies of unprecedented convulsions of nature during the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet, exhausting their welcome after millennia of exile among the now Muslim peoples of the ancient Assyrian and Babylonian Empires. The Lord’s chastisement will lead them to faith in the promise of the Covenant God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to “heal, revive and raise them up in His sight in the third day” (Deuteronomy 32:39).

Revelation 15:4 foretold the 144,000 elect Israelites will acknowledge the justice of God’s judgments and not ascribe their plight to man or seek man to heal their wickedness and the wickedness of their forefathers but mourn their atonement. Zechariah 12: “Then we shall know, if we follow on to know the Lord: His going forth is as fixed and certain as each day dawn separates darkness from Light; and He will come to us as [refreshing and reviving] as the latter and former rains invigorate the earth”.

This reflects the goodness, permanence and reliability of God’s providence in accordance with His promise to Noah “I will not curse the ground again anymore for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite anymore every living thing [with water], as I have done. While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease” (Genesis 8:21-22). In contrast, Judah’s “goodness is as [ephemeral] as a morning cloud [that rapidly dissolves], and as the early dew it goes away” (Hosea 6:4).

Trumpet of the LordAt the blast of the priests’ trumpets Israel assembled, as it were under the banner and before the throne of their God. The voice of the trumpets imaged the Voice and Word of the Lord (Exodus 19:13-19; Isaiah 58:1; Revelation 1:10; 4:1), reminding them of their Covenant (Malachi 4:4), acknowledging God as King and reminding Him of His promises (Leviticus 23:23-25; Numbers 10:9; Isaiah 43:26). The feast of Trumpets on Tishri (October) 1 which commenced the sabbatical and civil year, and the year of Jubilee, also prepared for the Day of Atonement on Tishri 10. Joel 2:15-17, “Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the Bridegroom go forth of His chamber, and the Bride out of her closet. Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare Your people, O Lord, and give not your heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: why should they among the peoples say, Where is their God?” This was the month for ingathering the last ripe fruits, as well as sowing. When the Great or Seventh Trumpet sounds, “Loud voices in heaven will pronounce, The kingdom of this world has become the Kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever” (Revelation 11:15).

The Great Trumpet will mark the end of the Gentile dispensation and our Jubilee. It will call the first resurrection of the sleeping saints commencing on the third day, and the manifestation of the Token of the Life of Christ in living Sons of God waved as leavened loaves will consecrate the whole harvest of Christ’s Bride prior to our body change and translation. All those in denominational walled cities will enter the tribulation as they cannot come out in the Jubilee (Leviticus 25:29-30).

es Sakhra, the Dome of the RockThe Sixth Seal will manifest from the sinking of Los Angeles at the Great or Seventh Trump marking the end of the Gentile dispensation. At this time the Pillar of Cloud will be raised as an “ensign” or signal over the Mount of Olives which will cleave in the midst toward the east and the west, demolishing es Sakhra, the Dome of the Rock, and the al Aqsa Mosque, thus igniting the ‘hot stage’ of the present World War III (Isaiah 29:6; Zechariah 14:4-5; Revelation 16:19). And as Israel failed to recognize the fulfilment of Zechariah 9:9 speaking of Messiah’s first Coming, they will also not recognize Zechariah 14:4-5 speaking of His second or (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming.

Isaiah 18:3-4, All you inhabiters of the world and dwellers upon the earth, as soon as an ensign, signal or rallying point is raised on the mountains [as when the Pillar of Cloud stands upon the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:4)], you will see it; and when the [Great or Seventh] Trumpet is blown, you will hear it. For THUS SAITH THE LORD, I will take My rest, and I will consider in My dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a dew cloud in the heat of harvest”.

In the shadow and type God called the Assyrians together on “the mountains” before Jerusalem to their destruction. King Hezekiah sought aid from Ethiopia’s King Tirhakah, but the Lord God smote the Assyrians as they slept (Isaiah 37). In the antitype of Zechariah 14 the Lord calls on the entire world to witness the same divinely sent earthquake that swallows the foe open a way of escape to the Israelites (Ezekiel 38:20-21; Zechariah 14:4).

Isaiah 27:12-13: “In that day, the Lord will start His threshing from the channel of the River Euphrates to the Wady el-‘Arish [or from the northern to the southern border of Israel], and you will be gathered one by one, O children of Israel. And it shall come to pass in that day that the Great Trumpet will be blown, and those who were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and who were scattered in the land of Egypt (Ezekiel 34:4, 16) will return to freely worship the Lord in the Holy Mount at Jerusalem [after the earthquake that divides the Mount of Olives, demolishes the Dome of the Rock generating a Muslim invasion and the exodus of Israel’s enemy the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews (Genesis 27:39-41)]”.

God’s Bible instructs us that the “children of Israel” will be gathered into the Land of the Covenant in the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week after the Seventh or Great Trumpet.

Zechariah 14:1-9, “When the Day of the Lord comes [at the Seventh or Great Trumpet that ends mans’ day] Israel’s spoil will be divided in its midst. All nations will gather against Jerusalem to battle; and the City will be taken, the houses rifled and the women raped; half of the City shall go forth into captivity [as the State of Palestine], and the rest of the Israelites will not be cut off from the City [which will become a corpus separatum when peace is restored and UN Resolution 181 of November 29, 1947 honoured]” (Isaiah 13:1-16; Joel 2:1-17; Malachi 4:1). “[After the midst of Daniel’s Seventieth Week] the Lord will go forth, and fight against those nations, as He fights in a day of war.”

“His feet shall stand upon the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives shall cleave in the middle eastward and westward by a very great valley; half of the mountain shall move northward and half southward. And you shall flee from the valley of My mountains; for the valley of My mountains shall reach unto Azal: you shall flee as you fled before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah King of Judah: and the Lord My God shall come, and all the saints with Him” (I Corinthians 15:52; I Thessalonians 4:14-16).

The place of His departure at His ascension will be the place of His return: and “this same Jesus who was taken up from you into heaven shall return in like manner” (Acts 1:11). He will “come from the east, having the Seal of the living God”  (Ezekiel 43:2; Matthew 24:27, 30; Revelation 7:2). “And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Light shall not be clear, nor dark: but it shall be a unique day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be Light” (Matthew 24:27-31).

We live in the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the antitype of Israel’s Pentecost, a unique day and dispensation unrecognized by the world church system. In this dismal day of denominational confusion, of acquiring knowledge devoid of understanding, the Lord sent us a Prophet with Spiritual Light in the evening of the Gentile dispensation. After the Great Trumpet He will enlighten Israel through the ministry of the two angels of Zechariah 4 and Matthew 24:31.

“And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former [Dead] sea, and half of them toward the hinder [Mediterranean] sea: in summer [by the ‘parousia’ Coming of the Son of man to us Gentiles by the revelation of the Seven Seals in the present holy convocation for the Pentecostal Jubilee of Christ’s Bride]; and in winter [by the ‘parousia’ Coming of the Son of man to Israel by the revelation of the Seven Trumpet mysteries in the antitype of their feast of Trumpets for the Atonement Day Jubilee of 144,000 elect Israelites]. And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be only one Lord and His Name the only one” (Revelation 11:15; Isaiah 66:8).

Endued with the spirit and authority of a Moses and an Elijah, two prophets will expound the feast of Trumpets in the Land of the Covenant to reveal the mystery of Seven Trumpet Judgments that chastised unbelieving Israel through the Gentile dispensation. These mysteries will be revealed under the Sixth Seal, and their purpose, as Brother Branham explained, will be “To rush the Jews [he means Israelites], from all parts of the world, back into their homeland. It must be there [to fulfil their Day of Atonement]” (Recognizing your day and its Message, p. 8:37; Hebrews 11:11-13). He also said, “Many Jews in the United States (which they won’t escape from) . . .” (COD, p. 97:235). And quoting Malachi 4:1, “For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud . . . (like the Americans and so forth) . . . yea . . . all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: . . . (It’s going to burn.) . . . and the day that cometh that shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts . . . it shall leave them neither root or branch” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 150:6). The plagues that preceded the deliverance of natural Israel from Egypt type the Seven Trumpet Judgments God sent to call Israel out of spiritual Egypt back into her homeland to fulfil their Day of Atonement. This was a shadow and type of the birth of the nation in one day (Isaiah 66:8), for on the Day of Atonement the sin of Israel had been removed, and its covenant relation to God restored.

Revelation 11:1-4 explains how the three and a half (prophetic) year ministry of Israel’s prophets will be directed solely to a sanctified election of blood Israelites descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. “Rise, and measure the Temple of God, and the altar [that belongs to the Holy of Holies (Exodus 30:6; I Kings 6:22), and them that worship therein.” Their ‘Moses’ will bring to mind the Law with its statutes and judgments for all Israel which is the pattern consecrated by the created Blood of God; the shadow and type after which Paul wrote the New Testament (Hebrews 9:1-23; Revelation 1:5; Malachi 4:4). The rending of the veil by Christ has brought the human antitypes to the altar, lampstand, and showbread of the Holy Place into the Most Holy Place, heaven. With this foundational understanding restored, the Israelites will recognize and renounce the blasphemous hypocrisy of Talmudism whereby Jews “made the commandments of God of none effect”  (Matthew 15:1-9). Henceforth their ‘Elijah’ will be able to explain, perhaps by the example of Joseph who was a type of Jesus Messiah and by the history and revelation of the past 2,000 years, how the nation was chastised by the God of Israel according to the Law of Moses. Their rejection of the Gospel Trumpets which delivered the Voice and Word of God in seven successive Church Ages emulates the blasphemy of those who believed the spies at Kadesh-barnea and disbelieved God’s promise. As their names were removed from the Book of Life, so are the names of those who received the Talmud in place of the vindicated Word of Moses, the prophets, and Christ’s seven angel forerunners, thus “crucifying to themselves the Son of God afresh” (Hebrews 6:6; Revelation 2-3).

Like Jesus Messiah, Joseph was loved of his father but despised by his brothers because he was a prophet with whom God spoke in spiritual dreams and visions. Thrown into a pit and supposedly killed by wild beasts, he was raised and sold for twenty pieces of silver. His brothers slew a young goat and dipped his coat of many colours in its blood. Jesus was sold for thirty pieces of silver and murdered by His brothers, then buried; but in three days He rose from the tomb, and “when the Day of Pentecost was full come” the rainbow crowning His head came back upon an election of believing men and women of diverse nations, tongues and colours of Adam’s race.

Joseph was sold as a slave to Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh; the Lord was with him and prospered everything he did. Potiphar’s wife falsely accused Joseph and he was imprisoned, but God prospered him in the prison. Pharaoh’s butler and baker were also imprisoned; each dreamed a dream, and according to Joseph’s interpretation the baker was hanged and the butler was restored. Jesus was impaled on the Cross between two felons, the impenitent on the left was lost, and the elect penitent on the right was saved.

Do you see the shadows and types and the simplicity of the Gospel? Israel will recognize the substance by the shadow.

After two years Pharaoh dreamed complimentary dreams and his butler referred him to Joseph who interpreted the seven good years and the seven lean years and advised Pharaoh as to what he must do to preserve his people. And Pharaoh set Joseph over the land saying, “only in the throne will I be greater than you . . . and made him to ride in the second chariot which he had [I think it was a Chrysler]; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.” Likewise Jesus Messiah declared, “All things are delivered unto Me of My Father: and no man knows the Son, but the Father; neither knows any man the Father, save the Son, and He to whom the Son will reveal Him” (Isaiah 45:23; Matthew 11:27; Philippians 2:10).

Throughout the Church Ages God sent seven angels named Paul, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, Martin Luther, John Wesley, and William Branham, crying “Bow the knee, our Joseph, Jesus Christ, is Coming.” In each dispensation the elect received the Gospel Trumpet for their day, “bowed the knee” and were born-again. At war with the God of Abraham, Israel rejected the Trumpet of Gospel grace and received the Trumpet of judgment.

We have had seven good years or Church Ages. Soon the Lamb will take His Bride to be ever at His side—so FEW we will not be missed in the unprecedented convulsion of nature that introduces seven years of “the time of Jacob’s trouble” and Edomite and Khazar Jews who are not Jacob’s seed will not “be saved out of it” (Jeremiah 30:7). If they are in Adam’s race their time of redemption is now, before God returns to Israel.

Amos 8:11 prophesied, “The days come when I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the Words of the Lord.” This famine is now; few can find a Church serving “Spiritual food in due season” anywhere on the face of this earth.

Matthew 24:21-22 spoke of persecution that would come upon the Church from the natural and spiritual Serpent seed with increasing intensity such that unless God shortened the days by the Message of His prophet William Branham there would be no flesh saved for the translation. According to Ezekiel, Gog will re-communise Russia; to this end he has invaded the Ukraine from the USA. Toward the end of the seven years’ tribulation Gog will exercise his “Samson Option” to annihilate Vatican City State and the United States, leading to Armageddon and the consummation. And as Joseph dismissed his servants and sent his Gentile wife and children into the palace before he revealed Himself to his brethren, our Joseph will steal His Gentile Bride into the Palace before the “seven lean years” at the end of which He will reveal Himself to His brethren.

The ordinance of the Day of Atonement was delivered after the death of Aaron’s two sons, when they drew near before the Lord with strange fire in their censers and died (Leviticus 10). This ordinance of the Day of Atonement is the culmination of the Mosaic sacrificial worship. Israel rejected its Atonement—Jesus Messiah—and will soon restore animal sacrifices.

From Numbers 29:7-11 it appears that the offerings on the Day of Atonement were of a threefold kind—“the continual burnt-offering” of the daily morning and evening sacrifices, with their meat-and drink-offerings; the festive sacrifices of the day, consisting of “a ram for a burnt-offering” for the high-priest and the priesthood, and for the people one young bullock, one ram, and seven lambs of the first year (with their meat-offerings) for a burnt-sacrifice, and one kid of the goats for a sin-offering; and, thirdly, and chiefly, the peculiar expiatory sacrifices of the day, which were a young bullock as a sin-offering for the high-priest, his house, and the sons of Aaron, and another sin-offering for the people, consisting of two goats, one “for the Lord” was “made sin” and sacrificed and its blood sprinkled as directed, while one “for Azazel,” meaning separation, was the escaped goat sent away to a land of forgetfulness bearing “all the atoned for iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins” which had been confessed over and laid upon him by the high-priest. These fifteen sacrificial animals, including both goats, represented Jesus Christ “who has by one offering perfected forever those that are sanctified . . . and where there is remission, there is no longer any offering for sin” (Hebrews 10:14, 18).

Therefore, when the 144,000 elect Israelites fulfil their Day of Atonement—receiving the revelation of Jesus Christ and new birth—they will not kill a sacrifice but mourn for their unbelief and the unbelief of their forefathers.

Zechariah 12:10 – 13:1, “I will pour upon the House of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon [when godly King Josiah was slain].”

“And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the [royal] House of David alone, and their wives alone; the family of the house of Nathan [David’s son] alone, and their wives alone; the family of the house of Levi [the priesthood] apart, and their wives apart; the family of [Levi’s grandson] Shimei apart, and their wives apart; all the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart. In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the House of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness”.

Brother Branham said, “In this place it’s called Israel to mourn for their sins. How perfect it is today. It’s not the rekilling of it (which Moses symbolized in striking the rock the second time; it didn’t work), not a killing of a beast, but a mourning of rejecting the Atonement. Oh, my.”

“This will be the trumpet, the feast be a rejected, then their Messiah made known. Notice. They’ll know their Messiah when they see Him. He’s coming in power this time, the One they looked for. He’s coming in power for the Gentile Bride, and the Jews are going to recognize Him . . . and when they do see the Atonement appear, the Bible said they’d separate one home from another and weep for days, like a family that’s lost their only son. “Where did You get those wounds?”

He said, “In the house of My friend.”

“Remember, the Bride’s already in heaven. Joseph’s wife was in the palace, and Joseph dismissed everything from around him, and he made himself known to his brothers. You see? His Wife, and children, and them was in the palace when He returns back to make Himself known to the Jews. There’s the Atonement, there’s your sound trumpet. There’s where they say, “Where was them wounds come from? . . .”

“Remember what Joseph’s brother said? Why, they said, “Now, we’ll be killed sure enough. We did that; we did the evil”—like that.”

He said, “No, God did this to save life.” You remember the story in Genesis? See, see? So did He do it this way to save the life of the Gentile, the Bride. Said, “I got them in the house of My friend, but don’t be angry, see, don’t be afraid of yourself” . . . (The Feast of the Trumpets, p. 33:252-259).

Israel will “see” and “recognize” Jesus by faith through the ministry of their prophets, following their death, resurrection, glorification and ascension witnessed worldwide (Revelation 11:7-13). This will be the revelation of Christ’s unseen second or ‘parousia’ Coming after the tribulation. After the nation is born-again in one day, the false church will hunt them down like dogs, “And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem”  (Zechariah 12:9).

Brother Branham explained that in the midst of the Daniel’s Seventieth Week, “the antichrist covenant that the Jews have made with Rome will be broken. Rome and her allies then send their troops to destroy all the God-fearing, Word-abiding Jews.”

“But as they come against the city to destroy it, there will appear in the heavens the sign of the Coming of the Son of Man with His mighty armies to destroy them who have been destroying the earth. With the enemy repulsed, Jesus then comes and presents Himself to the 144,000. [Not the physical return of the glorified Man; His precious feet will not touch this earth until He returns with the glorified saints of all ages, including the 144,000 Israelites “to tread down the wicked who will be nuclear ashes under the soles of their feet” (Malachi 4:1-3)]. Having seen His mighty acts of salvation, they have come to know His power. But also seeing His wounds and knowing that they had rejected Him even to that moment, causes them to cry out in the agony of terror and fear, even as did their brethren of old when they stood before Joseph, being sore afraid that they would be killed. But as Joseph said, “Don’t be angry with yourselves. It is all right. God was in it all. He did it to preserve life.” Even so will Jesus speak peace and love to them [as the Voice of the Archangel is speaking to your heart at this moment] (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 41).

Revelation 1:7, “Behold, He comes with clouds [of glory, the Shekinah or Pillar of Cloud]; and every eye shall see Him, and they also who pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen.” As when He was seen upon the Mount of Transfiguration, He will be preceded by the two witnesses. And EVERY eye shall see Him. That means this is not the Rapture. This is when He comes to take over His rightful place as World Ruler. This is when those who have pierced Him with their creeds and denominational doctrines shall mourn, and all the people shall wail in terror because of Him who is the Word.

The seventh or sabbatical month closed the festive cycle, the Feast of Tabernacles on Tishri 15 being the last in the year. But before that grand festival of harvesting and thanksgiving Israel must, as a nation, be reconciled unto God, for only a people at peace with God might rejoice before Him in the blessing with which He had crowned the year. The import of the Day of Atonement, as preceding the Feast of Tabernacles, becomes more striking, when we remember that feast of harvest prefigured the final ingathering of all nations. In connection with this point it may also be well to remember that the Jubilee Year was always proclaimed on the Day of Atonement.

The feast of Tabernacles, or ingathering, commenced on Tishri 15 and extended for seven days followed by an eighth day which was a holy convocation. For the Israelites it commemorated the wilderness journey when they lived in tents. For Adam’s race the first six days are a shadow and type of the six thousand years in which man has laboured against sin; the seventh day points to the millennium wherein the Kingdom is restored to Israel, ruled by David’s greater Son, Jesus Christ. The millennium will be followed by the general resurrection and White Throne Judgment. The eighth day was not intended to conclude the feast but only to bring the annual cycle of feasts and time to a close, for it is a shadow of eternity in the renewed heavens and renewed earth hence joy was the prominent feature (Leviticus 23:33-44).

In John 7:2 and 37-39, Jesus alludes to the custom of drawing water from Siloam in a gold goblet “in the last day, that great day of the feast,” the eighth day of the feast and pouring it mingled with wine on the sacrifice on the altar with great rejoicing. It was to the Words of Isaiah 12:3, which were repeated in commemoration of the water drawn from the rock in the desert that Jesus said, “If any one thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. I am the living Rock of living water. For Scripture declares that rivers of living water shall flow from the innermost being of he who believes in Me.” He spoke concerning the baptism with the Holy Spirit which was to come.

Coming at daybreak the next day as they were extinguishing the artificial lights, two colossal golden candlesticks in the centre of the temple court, recalling the pillar of fire in the wilderness, Jesus said, “I am the Light of the world” (John 8:1-2, 13). As natural sunlight was eclipsing the artificial lights, Jesus implied, “I, the Sun of righteousness, am superseding your typical light.” The Shekinah has shadowed believers in their wanderings through 6,000 years; it will be with us through the millennium and overshadow New Jerusalem throughout eternity.

“Behold, the day is coming, burning as a furnace; and all the arrogant and evildoers will be chaff: and the day is coming that will set them ablaze, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But to you who fear My Name the Sun of righteousness will arise with healing in its wings and you shall go forth [in the millennium], and grow up as calves of the stall” (Malachi 5:1-2; Matthew 3:12).

Time is in swift transition to eternity where shadow and type will be replaced by the eternal reality of the substance of things hoped for. nl923.htm

Shadows and Types – Part IIAndroid Phone

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 922

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

It’s a lovely day today, the sun is shining in a clear blue sky and we are happy that you have joined us fellowship around God’s unchanging Word.

Today we continue our exposition of “Shadows and Types” from the wave offering of the omer of flour made from the first fruits of Israel’s barley harvest on resurrection Sunday typing Jesus Messiah, the antediluvian and Old Testament saints, to the wave offering of two wheaten loaves baked with leaven representing Christ’s Bride of all Ages on the Day of Pentecost.

This week’s news items portray the utter corruption of pseudo-Christianity and the world’s once Christian Nations in thrall to the enemy of God and man since the organization of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church in AD325, Jewry’s conquest of England in 1688, acceptance of their Babylonian fractional reserve banking system, fiat money and controlled two-party Hegelian sham democracy, Judaeo-Masonic and Judaeo-Communist top-down revolutions, psyops and black-ops, Admiralty law, and ignorance of, disdain for and unbelief in the Scripture of Truth.

We are living in the “good times,” seven years of famine are knocking at the door, just waiting for the last elect to find his or her place in Christ. If you are unsure of your position run to Christ now, not church organization, but to Jesus Christ the Word. When the last predestinated member has entered the Body of Christ grace will have ended and He turn to an election of 144,000 Israelites in the Land of Israel . . . not one of them a Jew.

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.

The Globalization of NATO: Proudly delivering Death since 1949

Mason Washington

May 10, 2016 — Yugoslavia was a turning point for the Atlantic Alliance and its mandate. The organization moved from the guise of a defensive posture into an offensive pose under the pretexts of humanitarianism. Starting from Yugoslavia, NATO began its journey towards becoming a global military force. From its wars in the Balkans, it began to broaden its international area of operations outside of the Euro-Atlantic zone into the Caucasus, Central Asia, East Africa, the Middle East, North Africa, and the Indian Ocean. It has virtually turned the Mediterranean Sea into a NATO lake with the NATO Mediterranean Dialogue and the Istanbul Cooperation Initiative, while it seeks to do the same to the Black Sea and gain a strategic foothold in the Caspian Sea region. The Gulf Security Initiative between NATO and the Gulf Cooperation Council seeks to also dominate the Persian Gulf and to hem in Iran. Israel has become a de facto member of the military organization. At the same time, NATO vessels sail the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden. These warships are deployed off the coasts of Somalia, Djibouti, and Yemen as part of NATO’s objectives to create a naval cordon of the seas controlling important strategic waterways and maritime transit routes.

Counter-Propaganda, Russian Style

May 5, 2016 — “Declassified American government documents show that the US intelligence community ran a campaign in the Fifties and Sixties to build momentum for a united Europe . . . The documents confirm suspicions voiced at the time that America was working aggressively behind the scenes to push Britain into a European state. One memorandum, dated July 26, 1950, gives instructions for a campaign to promote a fully fledged European parliament . . .” The documents show that the European Union was a creature of the CIA.

. . . Washington believes that it is easier to control one government . . . why President Obama recently went to London to tell his lapdog, the British Prime Minister, that there could be no British exit . . . Washington is confronting Russia with a US/NATO naval build-up in the Black Sea [the standing force should be formed by July], a naval, troop and tank build-up in the Baltics and Poland, missile bases on Russia’s borders, and plans to incorporate the former Russian provinces of Georgia and Ukraine in US defense pacts against Russia . . .

The entire Western World consists of a dystopia far worse than the one described by George Orwell in his famous book, 1984 . . . Russia and China permit Washington to operate in their media, in their universities, in their financial systems, and in “do-good” NGOs that infiltrate every aspect of their societies demonstrates that both governments have no interest in their survival as independent states . . . Russia and China will soon be confronted with an unwelcome decision: accept American hegemony or go to war. Note The Saker’s take on Russian media openness to Western anti-Russian propaganda.

Putin plays ‘Energy Chess’ with Netanyahu

May 4, 2016 — On April 21 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu flew to Moscow for closed door talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin . . . the potential role of Russia’s state-owned Gazprom, the world’s largest natural gas producer and marketer, as a possible stakeholder in Israel’s Leviathan natural gas field. Russian involvement in the stalled Israeli gas development would reduce financial risk for Israeli offshore gas operations and increase the gas fields’ security, as Russian allies like Hezbollah in Lebanon or Iran would not dare target Russian joint ventures.

. . . it could . . . give Washington a major defeat in her increasingly inept moves to control the world’s center of oil and gas . . . since the Obama Administration went ahead, over vehement Netanyahu protests, to sign the nuclear deal with Iran in 2015, relations between Washington and Tel Aviv have chilled . . .

Comment: Brother Branham said, “What a perfect type Joseph was, and Christ the antetype. Then we notice that years passed by, and they fared sumptuously. But finally there rose up a Pharaoh who did not know Joseph. God was fixing His Church now to bring it out [in the ‘third exodus’].”

“And I believe that we fared sumptuously. In the early days there was a great persecution against religion. And as we know in Revelations and so forth, where the woman fled into the wilderness [the return of 144,000 elect Israelites after the ‘hot stage’ or World War III for redemption in Israel’s spiritual desert under the ministry of their two prophets] was nourished there for a time, time, and the dividing of time. And we’re down to that end time now.”

“The Word of the little lamb that rose up in Revelations 13, a lamb . . . a little horn—civil and ecclesiastical power . . . freedom of religion and so forth. But after while, he spake like a beast, like the dragon [Rome], and exercised all the power the dragon did before him, a bitter religious persecution. We’re nearing that time.”

“You remember, Church, that you’re living in the best day that you ever will live in, right now, until Jesus comes. It shall . . . rapidly get worse and worse.”

“When Russia goes down there to get that oil, look out. That’s all she needs. That’s what the prophet said it would do. And we’re ready for it then. So Church, get ready to meet Christ . . .” (Angel of the Lord, #51-0502).

Will the United States rid itself of Israel? Or has the time come when, as PM Netanyahu boasted, “Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States, it can dry up and blow away?”

France is tired of the suffering caused by needless, baseless sanctions imposed on Russia, so French parliamentarians have just approved a resolution not to renew sanctions on Russia. Meanwhile, a number of EU states, including Greece, will support the removal of the anti-Russian sanctions at a June EU summit. And as for Germany, some experts suggest the Germans simply ignored the sanctions all along. Here’s a latest look at the idiocy of economic suicide the so-called “west” heaped on Europe (journal-neo.org).

The ability of the ‘hidden hand’ to hold dominion via its trinity, Vatican City State, the City of London and Washington DC, must soon expire. Since it cannot redeploy Judaeo-Communism or Judaeo-Islam to wrest global hegemony, these axis will “give life to the US image of the beast and kill any recalcitrants” (Revelation 13:15). The ‘peace’ following sinking of Los Angeles and the ‘hot stage’ of World War III wherein Israel and the US are defeated and the US is invaded, will furnish the crisis that will see one totalitarian Judaeo-Roman world government established by universal approbation.


Saudi King financed Netanyahu’s 2015 Election Bid

May 9, 2016 — A member of Israel’s Knesset . . . Isaac Herzog, who is the chairman of the Israeli Labour party said, “In March 2015, King Salman has deposited eighty million dollars to support Netanyahu’s campaign via a Syrian-Spanish person named Mohamed Eyad Kayali.”

Panama Papers, which detail the offshore wealth of politicians and public figures across the globe, exposed more than 11.5 million financial and legal records earlier in April. “The money was deposited to a company’s account in British Virgin Islands owned by Teddy Sagi, an Israeli billionaire and businessman, who has allocated the money to fund the campaign [of] Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,” the lawmaker said . . .

US to offer Israel Largest Military Aid in US History

Zionism

April 28, 2016 — Why does the US give Israel billions of dollars in military aid each year? Why do less than 6 million European Jews, invaders and oppressors of a foreign land and its people deserve to be so lavishly armed and equipped? The answer can only be that there is vast corruption at work here, those who control the US purse strings are working not for the benefit of the US people, but for the benefit of Israel.

Israel is a criminal state with no right to exist, it is built on lies, deceit and murder and as long as it exists, there will be no peace in the Middle East. As long as the US supports this evil regime then it must share in the guilt for the many terrible crimes of Israel . . . Netanyahu making intensive diplomatic efforts to boost the overall value of the package to $50 billion, it was reported. Full story: veteranstoday.com

Fred Leuchter Interview with Jim Rizoli

September 29, 2015 — Until early 1988, Fred A. Leuchter, Jr.—like most Americans—basically accepted the Holocaust extermination story. In itself that is not at all remarkable, except that this man also just happened to be the foremost American expert on gassing and gas chamber technology.

He was commissioned to conduct a thorough forensic investigation of the alleged wartime gassing facilities in Poland. Leuchter and his team carefully investigated the so-called gas chambers at, first, the Auschwitz main camp, second, the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, which is supposed to have been the most terrible Nazi extermination center, and, third, the Majdanek camp near Lublin, where the Allies claimed at Nuremberg that a million and a half people were killed. As an expert witness testifying under oath in April 1988, and in his published report of his on-site investigation, Fred Leuchter explained in detail that the supposed gas chambers at Auschwitz, Birkenau and Majdanek could not possibly have been used to gas people as alleged . . .

‘Praise Allah’ Bus Slogans get Green Light Months after Lord’s Prayer Ad Banned

May 10, 2016 — The slogan reads ‘Subhan Allah’—which translates as ‘Glory be to God’—and will feature on hundreds of buses across the country as part of a campaign by the Islamic Relief . . . to raise money for victims of the Syrian Civil War during the holy month of Ramadan in June, when Muslims traditionally fast and give to charity.

But the campaign has caused anger among some Christian groups after an advert featuring the Lord’s Prayer was banned from UK cinemas in the run up to Christmas. The advert, which featured the [Jewish] Archbishop of Canterbury along with a variety of parishioners reciting the Lord’s prayer, was banned from Odeon, Cineworld and Vue [doubtless Jewish] cinemas . . .

Christian group ‘rebuilding’ Full-scale, working Noah’s Ark

July 14, 2015 — The Kentucky-based “Christianity-defending” group, Answers in Genesis, is now two-thirds of the way to reaching its fundraising target of $29.5 million, thanks to donations from thousands across the world who want to see its ‘Ark Encounter’ project take sail . . .

When completed, the ark will be about the height of a 10-storey building, a size that Answers in Genesis claims will make the Ark Encounter the largest timber-frame structure in the world . . . The group expects to employ up to 900 full and part-time staff once the construction is completed in 2016. Full story: domain.com.au


Under the Influence of Glyphosate

April 28, 2016 — Next time you think about relaxing with a glass of wine, you may want to pay close attention to where that wine came from. Moms Across America teamed up with Microbe Inotech Labs in St. Louis, Mo., to test ten California wines for glyphosate. All ten, from California’s prime growing regions—Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino Counties—tested positive . . . “allowable daily intakes” set by US agencies under the influence of Monsanto lobbyists are not only the highest “allowable” limits of any country in the world, they’re also bogus . . .

Bill & Hillary Clinton – The New Clinton Chronicles

Comment: This is an update on a file displayed on Bible Believers’ Church BBS and gated to the internet. Many POTUS have been traitors: Woodrow Wilson betrayed the nation to Rothschild’s Federal Reserve, F. D. Roosevelt declared the US bankrupt, stole citizens’ gold for the Federal Reserve, set up Pearl Harbour to force Japan into war so the US could attack Germany, filled the administration with Judaeo-Communists and developed the atomic bombs Truman dropped on Japan. Presidents Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Johnson, Bush I, II, Clinton, and Obama were all Jews.


Beware of False Prophets, which come to You in Sheep’s Clothing

Matthew 24:22-28 speaks of our present situation under the Fourth and Seventh Seals: the “days are being shortened” by the threefold PROCESS of I Thessalonians 4:14-17 that commenced when Christ descended on Sunset Mountain in 1963 and opened the Seven Seals. He warned us not to look for Jesus the Man for this is His unseen second or (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming, not His glorified second (Gk.) ‘erchomai’ return. “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” Carefully Read and re-read those seven verses.

On Saturday I received URLs to videos promoting supposed prophecies regarding Donald Trump’s presidency presented by hook-nosed charlatans in sheep’s clothing. Interpretations of these prognostications oppose Scripture and the revelation of God’s prophet. Blinded by fraudulent pastors and oblivious to Amos 3:7 and Revelation 18:4, the people were mesmerised.

The YouTube channel contained many such videos as America is rich in “goats” and false prophets. I include these URLs to illustrate “blindness in part has happened to the United States and apostate (once) Christian nations” (Jeremiah 5:21-24; Romans 11:25; Revelation 3:17).

Comment: Here are some shadows and types and a foretaste of how “America the beautiful” might regard the wise and foolish virgin after Los Angeles sinks. The moral is, “make your calling and election sure”.

God’s Bible said William Branham (1906-1965), the angel to the seventh or Laodicean Church (1906-1963) and the Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6 “will restore the hearts of the children back to the faith of their Pentecostal Fathers,” and He has. He explained that the United States rejected her last opportunity for national repentance when she rejected the Jubilee of the 1906 Azusa Street Revival in 1956-7.

“Now, as we see the evil hours approaching, all the wrath of God built up into the skies. And it’s most any time that there could be something happen to this nation that’s forsaken Thee, that there would be one great explosion that would take the nation completely off of the map of the world—with threats behind it of an ungodly country that’s anxious to do so. And knowing that instead of drawing nigh unto God, they seem to move further away. Knowing that the Book of the Revelation and all down through the Scriptures has predicted this day, then let us take warning, Lord, and not be slothful and be laying sleepy as it was. May we rise and shake ourselves. May we have understanding today like we have never had before . . .”

William Branhamn“Stay with God for your true sign. You’ll see it. It’ll be all around you. But millions will walk right by it and don’t see it. When Jesus come, they didn’t know Him. They didn’t recognize Elijah. You know what they said when Elijah went up? They didn’t believe that nonsense . . . The children right there in that own city where he lived at, preached at, done signs and wonders right there in that country, when they—come a alarm out, “We can’t find Elijah, the Lord took him up in a whirlwind,” they laughed at such a thing.”

“Here come Elijah, Elisha, with the same signs on him, a type of Christ and His Church. Here come Elijah, same—Elisha, the same signs Elijah had, coming right down doing that. Even their little children followed him out, said, “Old Baldhead, why didn’t you go up like Elijah?” See what happened to them irreverent children? Today they laugh and make fun. Don’t worry, brother, judgment is hanging in the skies right now, written on the face of every American. Judgment is hanging in the skies. All the wrath of Almighty God” (True Sign Overlooked, p. 6:27, 251-252).

A prophet is a sign of oncoming judgment (Amos 3:7). America’s sole utility is hired gun and Vatican enforcer for her alien controllers. The CFR is her enemy; she can’t win another war and will be defeated in the ‘hot stage’ of World War III. “The Bible says it’ll happen” (Handwriting on the Wall, #14:7, p. 11:84-91).

“Today when we thought we we’re so secured, we had the best scientists in the world . . . and come to find out, we’re way behind in the missile race . . . Not only a handwriting on the wall, but there’s the ballistics of the missiles is writing in the sky, that we’re way behind, years behind. What’s the matter? The handwriting’s on the wall.

“And in that day it was wrote in unknown tongues, handwriting on the wall. There wasn’t but one man in the whole kingdom could interpret it. But he had the gift of interpretation. And he interpreted and said, “Thou are weighed in the balance, and been found wanting.” God sent a nation of people in here among you, that you call holy-rollers. You went down there and disgraced them, and put them to death, and smothered them out; and took your gods and idols and things, and has worshipped by it, and lived deliciously. And now you’ve went and took the very vessels out of the temple of their God, and come over here and cracking jokes on them, making fun of the holy-roller, the baldheaded preacher,'” and all like that. And God has got enough of it. “And the hour of your doom is at hand.” The very nation that would take them was waiting at the gate right then. Just a little after that, they were slaughtered, their women was cut down. Their guards, their army, and everything, was taken-over. “Weighed in the balance and found wanting.”

“And we have been radio and television-mad, and jokes, and dirt, and filth, and crookedness, and orneriness, and everything, until God’s tired of it. When the Gospel, the true Gospel of the Holy Ghost church is back and forth across the nation, showing the certainty of Jesus Christ and His coming, until the time is in here when God writes across our skies, “Weighed in the balance and found wanting.” Amen. We’re in a terrible condition. Listen at the certain sound, not the [Jews’] uncertain UN. Yes, sir” (The Uncertain Sound, #16:3R, p. 28:194-195).


Shadows and Types – Part II

God bless you Brethren as you “receive the Word with all readiness of mind, and search the scriptures daily whether those things were so” (Acts 17:11).

Christ’s end-time Bride now has the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication and must “freely eat” of the Tree of Life, as He said: “Take It, and eat It up” nourish your soul with the mind of Christ. Familiarity with the words of the Prophet is the blessed foolish virgins’ second-hand religion; beyond that the wise enjoin personal relationship through two-way communication with our Lord, Brother and Husband, Jesus Christ.

In our previous meeting we saw that as the Lord God is infinite and omniscient He can never change His mind on His Word or His ways, as Paul explained in Hebrews 11 and 12 citing the Old Testament saints and history as his witnesses over four millennia of man’s existence. Brother Branham based his faith and ministry firmly on the truth, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever,” whereby he discerned the truth or fallacy of perceived revelations against scriptural shadows and types within the Absolute of God’s Holy Bible.

In our last time together we employed Israel’s feast of Passover and Unleavened Bread as our shadow and type whereby we discovered FIXED dates, FIXED days and FIXED times as a templet that must ever replicate under like circumstances. Today we will begin by citing further illustrations.

The Hebrew sacred year began with the first Passover that signalled a new beginning, both in the course of the year and in the life of the people as separated from the nations (Numbers 23:9). Their antitype the Church must be separated from the denomi-nations as God’s Word calls for a total separation—from unbelief, the love of the world and the things of the world. Passover commemorated the solemn circumstances under which Israel commenced national life—its exemption under the blood of the lamb from the plague of death on Egypt’s first-born and its Exodus in prepared haste such as to deny them time to leaven their bread (Leviticus 23:1-8).

Whereas Israel came forth from Egyptian bondage under the blood of a natural lamb which they killed, ate and became one with its flesh, we came from bondage to the world and the things of the world under the shed Blood of the risen Lamb of God, the Tree of Life slain on Calvary in the stead of Adam and his fallen race. Those who are truly under the Blood and born-again become one with His Spirit, partakers of “eternal life, and shall not come into condemnation; but have passed from death unto Life” (John 5:24).

Natural Israel is a shadow and type of Spiritual Israel, the Church; these milestones of God’s provenance in Israel’s history outline God’s program for the divine redemption of Adam’s race. Like Israel’s natural lamb our Kinsman Redeemer was slain at Passover to redeem Christ’s Bride—an election of every tribe, colour and tongue of Adam’s race whom He called and chose by their revelation of the present Truth” in each of the seven Church Ages which are the antitype of the seven weeks of Israel’s Pentecostal Feast. Israel entered into the land of their Covenant and place of natural rest at harvest time; the work of ploughing, scarifying and sowing accomplished by the natural Serpent’s seed they would displace (Genesis 10:15-19). We entered the Place of our Covenant and spiritual rest in the Pentecostal dispensations of the second or wheat harvest as redemption’s finished work “perfected forever by one offering” when we recognized our day and its Message He rid our soul of spiritual Serpent’s seed (Hebrews 9:16-17; II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7).

On Nisan 13 and 14 the Israelites diligently inspected their houses for any leaven that might defile the seven-day feast of Unleavened Bread. We who have begun a new day in the course of our lives as separated from the denomi-nations must “purge out the old leaven of denominational traditions and ritual that we may be a new lump as we are unleavened. For Christ our Passover has been sacrificed for us” (I Corinthians 5:7-8). “And if the first fruit is holy, the lump is also holy” (Romans 11:16). Do you see the shadows, types and antitypes?

Nisan 15 was the first day of the feast of Unleavened Bread on the evening of Christ’s death which commenced the new day—a holy convocation but also the weekly sabbath and therefore a high holy day (Leviticus 23:6-8). Already on Nisan 14 the spot whence the first sheaf was to be reaped had been marked out by tying the barley that was to be cut down into standing bundles. Although it was a sabbath, Israel reaped the first ripe sheaf of barley on the evening of Nisan 15 and carried it to the temple where it was beaten with rods to separate the bare grain which was parched in a perforated pan, then ground into flour and sieved, signifying Malachi 3:6 and Hebrews 13:8.

Leviticus 23:14, “You shall eat neither bread nor parched corn nor green ears until the same day that you have brought an offering to your God: it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.” To taste of the green corn is to taste of deliverance to the Promise—deliverance and rest to Israel in Canaan, and for the Church, the baptism with the Holy Spirit which is the new birth whereby we are sealed to the day of our Redemption and cannot be deceived on the revealed Word for our day (Matthew 24:24; Ephesians 4:30). Hebrews 6:4-6, “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly Gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, and have tasted the good Word of God, and the powers of the world to come . . . to fall away”.

On Nisan 16 the first omer of the barley harvest—as with the first born considered the choicest—was waved by the priest before the Lord for His acceptance by which act He consecrated the whole of the harvest (Leviticus 23:9-14; Romans 4:25; 11:16), and Israel was only permitted to use it when they received it as a gift from Him (Acts 2:37-40; Romans 5:15; Ephesians 2:8-10). The presentation of the firstfruits types Jesus Messiah who was anticipated after the captivity. Next the multitudes in Jerusalem and His disciples looked for Him as a warrior who would “restore the Kingdom to Israel” at the end of the sixty-two weeks (Daniel 9:26; Matthew 2:1-15; 21:8-9; Acts 1:6). But He came as Prince of Peace and was “Cut off, after threescore and two weeks” and murdered by His own people for which cause “the people of the prince that shall come; [Rome’s General Titus] will destroy the city and the sanctuary; its end shall be utter defeat with warfare [under Seven Trumpet judgments] and ruin is decreed to the consummation” (Isaiah 61:2b; Ezekiel 9; Daniel 9:25-27; Zechariah 14:2; Matthew 21:37-41; 22:7; 23:37-38; Luke 21:20-24 23:28-31). This shadow and type will have its antitype in Armageddon.
Body of Christ
Israel in its separation from the nations was God’s first-born natural son (Exodus 4:22; Romans 1:16)—a dispensational truth for us as spiritual Israel, the Bride of Christ, separated from the denomi-nations, and a token of Israel, the beginning of the world’s great harvest—Jesus Christ, the Old Testament saints, Christ’s Bride, and our 144,000 attendants. Nisan 16 was resurrection Sunday and the first day of the feast of Pentecost—a shadow and type of the Gentile or Christian dispensation. The firstfruits of the Old Testament appeared to many in Old Jerusalem over forty days, and from the fiftieth day the Gift of the Holy Spirit would inaugurate Christ’s Church by regenerating or spiritually quickening elect souls once dead in sin and trespasses. The first resurrection will fulfil the shadow and type of John 12:24 and Matthew 27:50-53 as the Church Age saints appear to many in New Jerusalem that is Christ’s Bride, as they rise Church Age by Church Age while His end-time Bride manifests that we are the Sons of God. Then one of the resurrected saints will appear to you, elevating your faith for rapturing grace to change in the atoms.

I Corinthians 15:20, “But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of the [Old Testament saints] that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at His (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming”.

Nisan 21 was a holy convocation ending the seven days of the feast of Unleavened Bread. The last six days of this feast were the first six days of the feast of Pentecost that types the Christian dispensation growing unto the stature of a perfect Man. They type the “foundation” of the Body of Christ when the Church held and understood “the faith once delivered unto the saints” without the “leaven” of man-made creed and traditions added to or taken from the pure Word of God (Jude 3).

Iyar (May) 1 was a new Moon, and Iyar 15 was a full Moon and the Second Passover attended by men who by reason of infirmity, Levitical uncleanliness or distance were prevented from attending the first Passover.

Sivan 1 (June) was a new Moon, and Sivan 6 was the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of the feast of Pentecost, Weeks, or First-fruits, and the anniversary of the blood Covenant at Mount Sinai it was intended to commemorate (Exodus 19-32). Whereas the former festival marked the absolute beginning of the grain harvest with barley; this marked the completion of harvest with the reaping of wheat, the noblest of grains signifying Christ’s wheat Bride. The seven weeks of Israel’s feast of Pentecost foreshadowed the seven Church Ages of the Christian dispensation. All seven Church Ages are fulfilled and redemption is over: we live in the holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day after presentation of the first sheaf of barley. Since God’s Prophet restored the apostolic faith and “finished the mystery of God” we do no servile work trying to interpret God’s Word but rest in the THUS SAITH THE LORD of his Message. As the omer for Nisan 16 was of barley, being the first ripe corn in the land, so the two wave-loaves were prepared from wheat grown in the best district of the country.

“A new meat offering baked with leaven”—two loaves, with the two lambs that formed part of the wave-offering, were the only public peace-and thank-offerings of Israel: accompanied by burnt-and sin-offerings, unlike ordinary peace-offerings, they were considered “most holy.” Hence they were leavened, because Israel’s public thank-offerings—even the most holy—are leavened by imperfectness and sin, and need a sin-offering. Because of the leaven they could not be offered on the altar. One of the wave-loaves and lambs went to the high-priest, the other to the officiating priesthood. After the ceremony of the wave-loaves, the people brought their own freewill-offerings, each as the Lord had prospered him—the afternoon and evening being spent in the festive meal, to which the stranger, the poor, and the Levite were bidden as the Lord’s welcome guests. The loaves were made the evening preceding the festival; long and flat, and turned up, either at the edges or at the corners. Each loaf was four handbreadths wide, seven long, and four fingers high (Mishnah).

In the antitype of the feast Christ came back upon His elect “when the Day of Pentecost was full come,” forming the Church to be “a kind of firstfruits of God’s creatures” (Acts 2; James 1:18). And probably just as the worshippers in the Temple were offering the wave loaves and the wave lambs, the multitude heard that “sound from heaven, as of a mighty rushing wind,” which drew them to the house where the new-born saints were gathered, there to hear “every man in his own language . . . the wonderful works of God.” And on that day from the harvest of firstfruits, not less than three thousand souls added to the Church were presented as a wave-offering to the Lord and the mighty rushing sound of the Presence and Power of the Holy Ghost has gone forth into all the world.

Thus the first of the three great annual feasts spoke, in the presentation of the first sheaf, of the founding of the Church; the second, in the presentation of two leavened wave-loaves signifying the finished Church of all Ages: one representing those who slept, the other “we who are alive and remain” waved in “the manifestation of the Sons of God” to consecrate the whole of the harvest (Romans 8:19).

Seven Church AgesJesus was that “corn of wheat that fell into the ground and died.” Now He is alive evermore and reproducing the fullness of Himself in the many-membered Body of His Bride (John 12:24-26). The above diagram reveals His Body was broad at its Pentecostal foundation; thereafter as Christianity became generally accepted the sheep “let down the bars, and the goats came in” bringing the darkness of “Jewish fables, philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Thereafter the churches organized under human headship and the Light of the Gospel was all but extinguished in the Dark Ages (see right) and the “corn of wheat fell into the ground and died”.

Next the great Martin Luther stood up against the false church and restored the very foundation of “justification by grace through faith” without works, sprouting that corn which put forth a stalk and two blades. It was not the wheat but it was an evidence of wheat life, and Light began to return to the Church. John Wesley added the further revelation that “without holiness no man shall see God,” and the stalk put forth a tassel—still not the wheat, but the Life was reviving. This was the great pollinating or missionary age. The seventh Church Age restored the revelation “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever”; it believed justification, sanctification, and the gifts of the Spirit. The Life having passed through the blade, stalk and tassel put forth husks looking so like the wheat that “if it were possible it would deceive the very elect.” But it was still shadow.

Moses was a type of church organization, the Law. He glorified himself instead of glorifying God before Israel crossed into the Promised Land. The Lutherans, Anglicans, Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists and Pentecostals turned from revelation of Jesus Christ to human wisdom, and God turned from them as he turned from Moses. Organized religion is not of God.

The seed shall not be heir with the shuck! The three stages of the wheat plant carried the Life, but they were not the wheat. When the wheat multiplied in the husk the plant was dead and the husk opened rejecting the wheat which sits in the sun ripening the greenness out of the grain. That husk types the Laodiceans who rejoiced under the Supernatural signs of the Prophet’s ministry but rejected the revelation of his Message, Christ the fullness of the Word. This is harvest time and like the wheat plant, the churches are DEAD. “Going forth unto Him without the camp, bearing His reproach” His Word Bride is maturing, resting under the Light of the S_O_N.

In Romans 11:32 Paul prophesied another shadow and type: “God has concluded both Hebrew and Gentile dispensations in unbelief, that He might have mercy upon all.” Israel became apostate because they were content with the second-hand religion delivered by priests and rabbis reciting year by year the theology they had learned from men long dead, and from the Talmud which Jesus said, “makes the Word of God of none effect.” Those Israelites and Edomite Jews let their rabbis ‘do’ their religion for them, neglecting their personal obligation to “receive the word preached with all readiness of heart, then search the Scriptures whether those things were so”.

Today, and for the same reason, the churches are all apostate and “know it not” (II Timothy 4:3-4; Revelation 3:17-20). God sent us a prophet who has restored the apostolic faith, finished the mystery of God, introduced Christ’s second or (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming, and revealed “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever” with the same Supernatural vindication (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; 24:37; Luke 17:28-30; Hebrews 4:12; 13:8; Revelation 1:1; 3:14; 10:7, etc). Israel rejected God’s prophet John the Baptist and like Cain who sought the Pentecostal blessing with an unbloody offering (Hebrews 9:22), Israel sought the fulfilment of scriptures pertaining to Messiah’s third Coming or second physical return as Son of David, rejected His first Coming and murdered the very Messiah. In today’s confusion of man-made theology the churches rejected God’s prophet William Branham. Like Israel they seek the second physical return of the Man Jesus, not understanding this cannot take place until after the consummation (Malachi 4:1-3; Matthew 3:12; 24:23-28). Having thus rejected His second or ‘parousia’ Coming they “crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh . . . and knoweth it not”.

Brother Branham said, “Now, that type there that I’m going to type Elijah with the Church of today . . . Just before judgment he received this Message [as our Elijah received his Message just before the judgment]. Elijah, he represented, being cared for in the natural, his natural food, because it wasn’t going to rain now, according to the Word of God, for three years and six months, or until Elijah called for it. “Whatever time you say, Elijah, that’s what it’ll be.” Therefore he walked up to the king and said, “There’ll not even be dew fall till I call for it.” That’s quite a load, isn’t it? That’s quite a Message.” [It was Elijah’s ‘third pull’].

“And now we’re going to type that with the spiritual drought of today. Now, we all know, we’re very aware that there is a great spiritual drought in the land today, spiritually speaking. And, you know, that was predicted by the prophets, just before the second coming of Christ would be, said: “There will come a famine in the land, and it won’t be for bread alone, but for the hearing of the Word of God” [Amos 8:11]. And that day is now, “hearing the true Word of God.” Now, this types the natural drought with the spiritual.”

“Sin and unbelief, by false teachers and modernists in the church had brought the place to this oncoming judgment. Then they had turned from God’s Word and His prophet to a modern theological terms of the Word.”

“If you notice here it’s just at that time that God always raises up something? ‘Cause He always . . . He does nothing until first He reveals it to the people, and He always reveals it by His servant” (Amos 3:7; Spiritual Food in Due Season, p. 6:33-36).

Jesus commissioned His Church when the Bible was sealed saying: “All power is given to Me in heaven and in earth.” [So if God is a trinity he rendered the Father and Holy Ghost impotent. But Jesus is Immanuel as prophesied by Isaiah 7:17, 9:6 and Matthew 1:23 and Paul was correct, “without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” (I Timothy 3:6)]. Jesus continued, “Because I am the Almighty, Go and teach heathens from all nations of Adam’s race, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” (Matthew 28:18-19).

Scripture and history confirm the Church baptized in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ until just before the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church organized at the First Nicaea Council in AD325 (Luke 24:47; Acts 2:38-39; Ephesians 4:5). By faith they knew that neither Father, Son nor Holy Ghost is a name, and if Father and Holy Ghost are two persons then Jesus had two fathers and is illegitimate (Matthew 1:18, 20). Holy Spirit is what God is; Father is an office or Title He received when His first son Adam was formed, and Son is an office or Title by which He manifests as the virgin-born Jesus, the sole Person of God manifest in flesh as the last Adam to fulfil the part of KINSMAN Redeemer for the first Adam and His bloodline.

In Matthew 24:14 Jesus prophesied, “This Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” He commanded Daniel and John: “Seal up the vision and prophecy until the time of the endso that no man was able to unlock its mystery (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 5:1-8; 10:1-4). “But in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel [to the Laodicean Church Age (1906-1963)], when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished as He has declared to His servants the prophets”.

The seventh angel was the prophet William Branham (1909-1965) who went to his reward having delivered his Message, but the Voice speaks louder than ever, and with greater clarity and urgency. For the end-time began fifty-three years ago when the last saint predestinated to the Laodicean Church Age was born-again ending Christ’s mediation for ignorance and all seven Church Ages were fulfilled, so when Christ opened the Seven Seals in 1963 and revealed their mystery through His Prophet the end had come.

The “great commission” of Matthew 28:19 and Matthew 24:14 is fulfilled. The seed shall not be heir with the shuck! The end-time evangelism is Revelation 18:4 and 10:8-11, Ephesians 4:13 and Romans 8:19, calling to misguided people who sincerely believe they are Christians: “Come OUT of Babylon [and her once Protestant daughter churches] and be filled with the Spirit that you do not partake of her sins and receive not of her plagues . . . take the little Book out of the Angel’s hand, and eat it up . . . and prophesy again concerning many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings . . . And come into the unity of the faith . . . for the manifestation of the Sons of God.” The Gentile churches are apostate “and know it not” just as the Israelites were apostate and still they “know it not” (Romans 11:32; Revelation 3:17-20). nl922.htm

Shadows and Types – Part IAndroid Phone

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 921

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

Greetings Bible Believers, in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased you could join us in fellowship around God’s unchanging Word.

The Lord God is infinite and omniscient so He can never change His mind on His Word or his ways as we read in Malachi 3:6 and Hebrews 13:8. Paul expounded this axiom in Hebrews 11 and 12, citing Old Testament saints and history as his witnesses to this theorem proven true over the previous 4,000 years of man’s existence. Brother Branham based his faith and ministry firmly on the truth, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” Like Paul, he measured and assessed the truth or fallacy of perceived revelation against scriptural shadows and types.

We are admonished to make our calling and election certain, and having put on the whole armour of God, to stand “for if the trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle” (I Corinthians 13:8). To this end our main article, “Shadows and Types – Part I,” considers the Word and Law of Moses which our Lord Jesus “magnified and made honourable” by fulfilling and transforming the promises of its shadows and types by grace through faith into the glorified substance of His Kingdom of God-men “made in His image and after His likeness” (Ephesians 4:13). If we can recognize the development of this 2,000 year process in correlation with Bible prophecy, and see it unfolding in our life now, we have the evidence of things hoped for—the “certain sound” on which to stand.

Our news items further confirm the apostasy of Christendom (so-called), which like Esau has passed the tipping point of repentance. There is now no place to run or to hide but into the arms of our Lord Jesus Christ.

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

A teachable Moment. The phrase ‘America First’ deemed offensive to Jews

Donald Trump

May 6, 2016 — Brainwashed Americans too stupid to realize what this really means:

Jewish protests about Donald Trump’s use of the phrase “America First” being anti-Semitic should tell you all you need to know about how Jews feel about America. They feel they own it—and they largely do!—but they also feel the goyim should obey them when they pontificate that Israel comes first, and that Americans should put Israel’s interests before America’s.

And why wouldn’t they? Israel Firsters—both Jews and those bought off by Jews—own the US government and virtually the entire US infrastructure in its entirety, and have for decades. Top that off with the sad fact just about all the information everyone receives through electronic and print media comes from Jewish owned shills, creating the perfect recipe for totalitarianism that is being swallowed hook, line and sinker by the younger generations of Americans who have had no exposure to the real history of the world, which reveals hundreds of years of warmaking Jewish perfidy exactly like what is happening in the world today.

The Jewish Anti-Defamation League, the CNN network and a fatuous Jewish columnist named Eli Lake have insisted the phrase “America First” evokes highly charged memories of a different era some 76 years ago when the world was perched on the precipice of World War II, and the famed American aviator Charles Lindbergh was the most visible figure trying desperately to keep the US out of an unprecedented bloodbath.

The bloodthirsty Jews were frothing at the mouth in their frenzy to annihilate Adolf Hitler, who had removed the Jews from power in Germany and imprisoned many of them in work camps—which were not the death camps of Jewish media propaganda. The 6 million hoax has long ago been debunked as a cover story to conceal how Germany became prosperous when it put serious sanctions on the treasonous behavior of the exploitative Jews.

US President Franklin Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Soviet Union dictator Josef Stalin—all of them descended from Jews and surrounded by Jewish advisers—had aimed for years to overthrow Hitler and liquidate the entire German population.

When Hitler removed the Jews from power in Germany in 1933, Jews all over the world declared war on him, and through their behind-the-scenes political control of the US, Britain, and the USSR, eventually obliterated the prosperous and innocent nation Hitler had resuscitated from the ashes of World War I. Of course, because the world’s major media have been controlled by Jews throughout the 20th century, the world has been told a very different story about these events.

Now the ADL and their paid off lapdogs in America’s kosher-stink press have actually claimed it is wrong for Trump to use the phrase “America First” because it brings back memories of when one of the great Americans, Charles Lindbergh, fought courageously to keep the US out of a falsely motivated World War II.

Had Lindbergh succeeded, it would have saved tens of millions of lives. But the combination of the Jewish press and their willingness to publish the lies of the politicians who were paid handsomely by the Jews who controlled the world’s money supply was simply too strong for average citizens who simply wanted to live in peace to overcome.

After all—and to this very day—peace is never on the Jewish agenda.

Today CNN, a thoroughly Jewish propaganda organization that fires people when they mention that fact, actually acknowledges the truth of the facts of World War II, but brands them as lies. It is the way Jews typically flip reality on its head, as they do when they support the notion that shouting out “America First!” is anti-Semitic.

In a tainted screed written by Williams College professor Susan Dunn, CNN proceeds to paint with a broad brush of inferred anti-Semitism a whole phalanx of American politicians, from Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart and former president Gerald Ford, to former Kennedy insider Sargent Shriver and former Yale President Kingman Brewster, for joining Lindbergh’s “isolationist” crusade . . .

Comment: After the captivity some expected “the kingdom would be restored,” however the returnees found much of their land occupied by Edomites who are sworn to kill the sons of Jacob (Genesis 27:39-41). Subsequently John Hyrcanus I hired mercenaries who defeated and assimilated the more numerous Edomites who “were hereafter no other than [non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled] Jews” (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, xiii. 9, 1; xv. 7, 9). Judea did receive a kingdom but it was Edomite, and when Herod the Great learned of his rival, “born King of the Jews Judeans” he ordered that all male children two years and younger in Bethlehem and environs should be slain (Matthew 2).

ZionismLike treacherous President Woodrow Wilson “no man spoke openly of Jesus for fear of the Jews.” But expectations revived and in “three score and two weeks” multitudes in Jerusalem hailed Jesus on precisely that day, crying, “Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest” (Daniel 9:25; Matthew 21:9). And “His disciples asked, Lord, will you at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel” (Acts 1:6)?

After threescore and two weeks Jesus Messiah was cut off” and murdered by His own people because of unbelief. For which cause Isaiah 29:9-12, Ezekiel 9, Daniel 9:25-27, Zechariah 14:2, Matthew 21:37-41; 22:7; 23:37-38, Luke 21:20-24 and 23:28-31 prophesied “the people of the prince that shall come, Rome’s General Titus, will destroy the city and the sanctuary; its end shall be overwhelming defeat with warfare and ruin decreed [under Seven Trumpet judgments] and to the consummation”.

The Land of the Covenant is again occupied by non-Semitic, anti-Semitic so-called Jews whose PM Netanyahu and rabbis know from Israel’s vindicated prophets that the ‘hot stage’ of the present World War III Israel will see utterly defeated, finished as a military force, and the USA defeated and invaded. Then a mass exodus of so-called Jews from Marxist, racist Israel will allow the blood sons of Jacob to return for redemption to the land of their Covenant without “fear of the Jews.” Meantime their sovereign nation state ‘the City of London’ fights with the lives and treasures of apostate (once) Christian colonies like Britain (conquered 1688), Australia, Canada, USA and other vassal and occupied states to grab a monopoly on the rich natural resources of African and middle-Asian nations, and sow the world into debt.

Their objectives include the re-colonisation of their homeland Khazaria (Ukraine and Georgia) and the reconquest of Russia through the Middle East and Iran. This achieved they will first annihilate Vatican City State, and “America Second.” As PM Netanyahu openly boasted, “Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States, it can dry up and blow away.”


China: Preserving Sovereignty or sliding into Western Sponsored ‘Color Revolutions’

May 3, 2016 — On April 28, New York Times was blasting “Clampdown in China Restricts 7,000 Foreign Organizations” . . . a concerted effort by foreign agents, including international and national organizations and NGOs that receive foreign training and funding to influence public opinion and eventually to cause civil unrest. Imagine, foreign agents teaching and influencing students at Chinese universities with western interests of, for example, privatizing China’s public and social services; or directly interfering in sovereign state affairs, by for instance attempting to rig the Shanghai stock exchange … to do with foreign ‘agents’, in this case Wall Street banks . . . Most of these 7,000 NGOs, if not all, are foreign agents with one purpose—destabilizing ‘unaligned’, sovereign and autonomous China. Russia is facing the same phenomenon, especially now, shortly before parliamentary elections . . .

The destabilization effort continued almost seamlessly to the former Soviet Republics which became the CIS countries (Commonwealth of Independent States) . . . The German-US promise to never expand NATO eastwards was a farce . . . because the conversion revolved mainly around East Germany, Genscher added explicitly: “As far as the non-expansion of NATO is concerned, this also applies in general.” Shevardnadze replied that he believed “everything the minister said.”

So much for trusting the West. NATO was expanded in 1999 to Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic, followed in 2004 by the Central and East-European countries Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. In 2009 Albania and Croatia joined. Under debate is now NATO membership of Sweden, Finland and Serbia. At its creation in 1949 NATO had 12 members. At present it has 28 members; all in an expansion towards the east, encroaching Russia . . .

US Aircraft Carrier denied Entry to Hong Kong

April 30, 2016, — The Chinese Foreign Ministry told the US on Thursday night the visit by the USS John C. Stennis would not be allowed . . . Last week, the US Pacific Command revealed they had sent six powerful A-10 Thunderbolt aircrafts near the Scarborough Shoal, which China occupies but Manila also claims. The Chinese Defence Ministry had expressed concern over the flight . . .

During the Thanksgiving holidays in 2007, Beijing rejected the USS Kitty Hawk’s visit to Hong Kong after Washington announced an advanced missile deal with Taiwan and US President George W. Bush met the Dalai Lama. However, the Kitty Hawk was allowed to dock in the city five months later in April 2008, as Sino-US military relations returned to normal . . . Meanwhile, the USS Blue Ridge, the Japan-based flagship of the US Seventh Fleet, is in Hong Kong, where it is a regular visitor . . . Full story: scmp.com

Comment: On April 15, American defence secretary Ashton Carter announced that the US is on the verge of deploying “new undersea drones in multiple sizes and diverse payloads that can, importantly, operate in shallow water where manned submersibles cannot”. He chose his visit to the US aircraft carrier Stennis, sailing in the South China Sea, to make the announcement, thus sending a clear message to China (scmp.com).


Aleppo Doctor attacks Western Media for Bias, Censorship and Lies

30 April, 2016 — When the US and NATO war of aggression was launched against Syria, Dr Nabil Antaki could have abandoned Aleppo to ensure his own safety. Instead he decided to remain and to serve the besieged people of his City, working with various local charities. Above all, he wanted to bear witness to the destruction caused by Western support for the foreign armed groups who have been systematically destroying Syria and terrorising its people for the last 5 years . . .

US supporting Al Qaeda: Heavy Propaganda rages in the Battle for Aleppo. Terrorists portrayed as ‘Freedom Fighters’

May 01, 2016 — In an attempt to claim the moral high ground, Washington uses proxy NGOs alongside proxy militia, to maintain the fiction that the Syrian Army does nothing but attack Syrian civilians.

Prominent among these NGOs is ‘The White Helmets‘ aka ‘Syrian Civil Defence’, which has become a principal source of claims that Syrian and Russian planes are targeting hospitals.

In fact ‘The White Helmets’, which claims to be independent, is a Wall Street creation, led by former British soldier James le Mesurier, co-funded by the US Government and embedded with the terrorist organisation Jabhat al Nusra, banned by the UN Security Council.

Every attack on al Nusra is thus portrayed as an attack on ‘civilians’ and clinics, or on emergency health workers. Much the same applies to Medicin Sans Frontiers (MSF), which funds al Nusra clinics (mostly without foreign volunteers) in several terrorist held areas.

Hillary approved sending Sarin Gas to Syrian Rebels

April 28, 2016 — A report from British intelligence saying that the sarin that was used didn’t come from Assad’s stockpiles . . . a secret agreement in 2012 was reached between the Obama Administration and the leaders of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, to set up a sarin gas attack and blame it on Assad so that the US could invade and overthrow Assad.

“By the terms of the agreement, funding came from Turkey, as well as Saudi Arabia and Qatar; the CIA, with the support of MI6, was responsible for getting arms from Gaddafi’s arsenals into Syria” . . . “Evidence leads directly to the White House, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, CIA Director John Brennan, Saudi Intelligence Chief Prince Bandar, and Saudi Arabia´s Interior Ministry” . . .

Party that Assad leads, the Ba’ath Party, was the subject of a shelved CIA coup-plot in 1957 to overthrow and replace it; but, actually, the CIA’s first coup had been not just planned but was carried out in 1949 in Syria, overthrowing there a democratically elected leader, in order to enable a pipeline for the Sauds’ oil to become built through Syria into the largest oil market, Europe; and construction of the pipeline started the following year . . .

This way, US oil and gas companies will refine, and pipeline into Europe, the Sauds’ oil and the Thanis’ gas, and not only will Russia’s major oil-and-gas market be squeezed by that, but Obama’s economic sanctions against Russia, plus the yet-further isolation of Russia (as well as of China and the rest of the BRICS countries) by excluding them from Obama’s three mega-trade-deals (TTIP, TPP & TISA), will place the US aristocracy firmly in control of the world, to dominate the 21st Century, as it has dominated ever since the end of WW II . . .

Remember the Golan Heights?

April 30, 2016 — During the 1973 Arab-Israeli War, Syrian forces had surprised Israel and were fast approaching the edge of the steep Golan Heights, captured by Israel during the 1967 war. It seemed as if Syrian armour and infantry would retake Golan, then pour down into Israeli Galilee.

Soviet recon satellites observed Israel moving its nuclear-armed, 500km-range Jericho missiles out of protective caves and onto their launch pads. At the same time, Israel was seen loading nuclear bombs on their US-supplied F-4 fighter-bombers at Tel Nof airbase.

Believing Israel was about to use nuclear weapons against Syria and Egypt, Moscow put huge pressure on both to rein in their advancing forces. Damascus, already in range of Israeli artillery on Golan, ordered its armoured forces on Golan to halt, allowing Israel to mount powerful counter-attacks and retake the strategic heights.

In 1981, Israel formally annexed the 580 sq. mile portion of Golan that it occupied . . . Benjamin Netanyahu, told Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin, that his nation would never return Golan to Syria. Israeli artillery on Golan can hit Syria’s capital Damascus; Israeli electronic sensors blanket Damascus and cover all Syrian military movement below . . .

Shadows and Types – Part I

Shadows and types manifest over four thousand years fitted perfectly together in union as the substance of things hoped for—the spoken Word made flesh—the Desire of all nations. That Truth spoken in love over a further two thousand years bore the many membered Body of His spoken Word Bride, and having grown up in every way toward Him who is our Head, whether in heaven or on earth we are being gathered together to be glorified with and in Him forever (Ephesians 1:10).
Christ's Wife
In an epistle addressed to “those who through the righteousness of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ have obtained like precious faith” II Peter 1:2-11 says, “Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the [precise and correct] knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. For His divine power has bestowed on us every requisite for life and godliness through knowing Him who called us to His own glory and virtue: whereby He has granted to us His precious promised blessings by which means you might become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world through lust. For this very reason do your best to supplement your faith with virtue, add to virtue knowledge, and to knowledge self-control; to self-control add steadfast endurance; and to steadfast endurance, godliness; and to godliness add brotherly affection, and to brotherly affection, love. For if you possess those qualities increasingly, they will render your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ neither inactive nor unfruitful, while he who lacks these things is blind, and short-sighted, oblivious of the cleansing from his former sins.”

“Therefore brethren, be more zealous to confirm your calling and election: for if you do these things you shall never fall: for so an entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ will be provided for you”.

Read Hebrews 11 whose shadows and types establish “Faith is the steadfast confidence in the existence of things hoped for and the tested evidence of things understood by revelation but as yet unseen by the natural eye.” As God instructed Moses: “See that you make everything according to the pattern that was shown you on the mountain”  (Hebrews 8:5) we must measure our revelation against Biblical shadows and types. And “since we are encircled with the great a cloud of witnesses of Hebrews 11 let us purge and simplify our lives of the frivolous pastimes of our unregenerate past, and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run steadily the course that is set before us” (Hebrews 12:1).

Cain and Abel foreshadowed Judas and Jesus; as Cain killed Abel at the altar, Judas killed Jesus at the altar. Jesus was God incarnate, Judas was Satan incarnate. When Jesus hung on the Cross, Judas hanged himself on a tree. On the Day of Pentecost the Spirit of Christ returned and the spirit of antichrist returned. Jesus was the Rock in the wilderness. He was the Lamb that died instead of Isaac. He was the brass serpent that hung on the pole and the Angel people could not see on the pool of Bethesda. The recognition of Biblical types confirms revelation and assures our expectation of the promise.

Today we will study certain key natural shadows and types from Exodus and Leviticus and their spiritual antitypes through the Christian dispensation. As Messiah Jesus is the sole Person of God manifest in flesh through the virgin birth to fulfil “the righteousness of His Law” we should acquaint ourselves with His evaluation of the Words of Moses.

On the day of His resurrection two of Jesus’ disciples were walking on the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus which is about eight miles when He joined them unrecognized. In His testimony Jesus called the Pentateuch “the Law of Moses” (Luke 24:44); as to its authority: “I assure you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no way pass from the Law, till all be fulfilled” (Matthew 5:18). Again, Jesus declared “Moses wrote of Me,” imputing foreknowledge and therefore divine inspiration to Moses (Genesis 3:15; Deuteronomy 18:15); and that faith in Himself was so connected with faith in Moses that had the Israelites believed Moses they would have believed Him (John 5:46-47).

Not only did Jesus endorse the Pentateuch, Isaiah prophesied “The Lord is well pleased for His own righteousness’ sake; [not His people’s who were unrighteous (Isaiah 42:21, 24; 45:24-25; 59:16)]. God is well pleased with His Son Jesus [“in whom My soul delights” (Isaiah 42:1)], “who fulfils all righteousness” (Matthew 3:15) for His people, and with them for His sake (Isaiah 42:6; Psalm 71:16, 19; Matthew 5:17; Romans 10:3-4; Philippians 3:9). He will magnify the Law, and make it honourable.” Jesus accomplished this by fulfilling shadow and type in Hebrews 10:1-10:

“For the Law, since it has only a shadow of the good things to come and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. Otherwise would they not have ceased to be offered? Because the worshippers once cleansed would have no consciousness of sins [as their soul distinguishing between what is morally good and bad, prompting to do the former and shun the latter, would commend the one while condemning the other (Romans 2:15). But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins year by year. For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sin [for animals have no soul that can come back upon the believer; their sacrifice is a ritual for the purpose of instruction by shadow and type (Galatians 3:22-25) preparing the believer to anticipate, recognize and receive their Kinsman Redeemer and Messiah in His season]”.

Therefore when God manifest in flesh, born of a woman, He quoted the Words He had spoken through lips of His prophets David and Isaiah (Psalm 40:6-8; Isaiah 53:19), “Ritual sacrifice and burnt offering You did not desire, but as a near Kinsman You have prepared Me a body fit to offer as a pleasing and acceptable expiatory sacrifice of obedience by My free will: in whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have had no pleasure. Then I said, Behold, I have come (in the volume of the Book it is written of Me), to do Your will, O God”.

“After this He said, You have neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifice and offering and whole burnt and sin sacrifices (which are offered according to the Law). Then He said, Behold, I have come to fulfil Your will [by grace through faith thereby magnifying the Law, making it great and glorious]. He takes away the first, legal system which was never God’s will but given because of Israel’s unbelief (Romans 8:2; Galatians 3:13), that He may establish the second, which is His will, that Jesus Messiah should redeem us by His self-sacrifice. Thus by the Absolute of God’s sovereign will we are sanctified through the offering of the Body of Jesus Christ once for all” (I Peter 1:22; Ephesians 1:5-7).

When Jesus had fulfilled His supreme commission, which was to reveal God to men through His Life and teachings, and especially through His death on the Cross, “He said, It is finished: and He bowed his head, and gave up the ghost”  (John 19:30). It is certain Jesus had perfect knowledge of the Father (I Timothy 3:16; John 1:18; 8:28; 5:17-47) and knew His Father’s Word. We must have confidence in Moses’ THUS SAITH THE LORD rather than denominationalism and literary critics as his ministry was a shadow and type of the ministry of Jesus Christ. Therefore Leviticus 1:1 is true: “And the Lord called to Moses, and spoke to him out of the tabernacle of the congregation.” That word “and” is a conjunction joining two thoughts; Jesus said it connects Leviticus closely with the preceding Book of Exodus.

ecumenical Assisi MeetingSince the Flood, the Kingdom of God, rejected by corporate humanity in the founding of the Babylonian world power and its system of religion practised to this day by almost the whole of humanity, whether they regard themselves Christian, Judaic, Muslim, Hindu or idolaters, continues. The names of deities differ but the religious systems are the same as every Pope has conceded since Vatican II which set the stage for the Luciferian one world religion and government Jesus rejected in Matthew 4:8-9 that will transpire following the ‘hot stage’ of the ongoing World War III (Revelation 13:8; 15-18), and since Pope Francis I is a Jesuit it would appear that the schism between the black and the white papacy has been resolved.

Moses taught the besetting sin of Noah’s day was miscegenation, “and also after that when the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were fair; and took any woman that they chose” (Genesis 6:1-4). He showed how Noah’s wife Naamah seduced his son Ham and bore Canaan who like his mother was not in Adam’s race (Genesis 9:20-27). The Serpent’s seed is with us today; Jesus prophesied that this great sin, now called ‘multiculturalism,’ would repeat (Matthew 24:37). Still, a few loyal souls remain separated from the world church system and its second-hand religions (Revelation 18:4).

In the line of Abraham and his seed, a few souls, at last, according to the promise of Genesis 15, had with the first exodus, formally established a theocratic Kingdom under the Law and its ordinances delivered amid thunders and lightnings on Sinai, and solemnly entered into a blood Covenant with God, swearing “All these things we will do and be obedient”  (Exodus 19:20; 24:7-4), which Covenant they promptly broke.

Leviticus was given to direct Israel how they might live as a holy nation in fellowship with God. The keynote of the Book is “Holiness”; its object was to furnish a code of Law for the theocracy to set up in Israel that would secure their physical, moral and spiritual well being. But the establishment of the theocracy was itself only a means to an end; namely, to make Israel a blessing to all nations in mediating to the Gentiles the redemption of God. So the Levitical laws were all intended and adapted to train and prepare the nation for this special historic mission to which God had chosen them (Mark 11:17; Galatians 3:22-25).

But natural Israel failed and Spiritual Israel, the Gentile Church of our Lord Jesus Christ, mediated the redemption of God to the nations (Matthew 24:14; 28:18-20).

To this end, it was absolutely necessary; first of all, that Israel should be kept separate from the heathen nations. To effect and maintain this separation, the Levitical Laws were admirably adapted. Obedience, even in a very imperfect way has made the nation isolated and separate from all the peoples in the midst of whom they dwell. For if Israel was to teach the nations the way of holiness, in which alone they can be blessed, the chosen nation must itself first be taught holiness by the Holy One. A lesson here for every one of us! God’s holiness was further revealed by the severity of the penalties attached to these Levitical Laws. Men often call these harsh, forgetting that we are certain to underestimate the criminality of sin; forgetting that God must, in any case, have rights over human life which no earthly ruler can have. But no one will deny that this very severity of the Law was fitted to impress the Israelite, as nothing else could, with God’s absolute intolerance of sin and impurity, and make him feel that he could not trifle with God, and hope to sin with impunity.

Months begin with the new moon. In Exodus 12:1-50 the Lord told Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt “the month Abib or Nisan shall be the beginning of months and the first month of the year” to the nation that would be inaugurated on the fourteenth of that month.

Here we have a FIXED day, a FIXED date, and a FIXED time. The Prophet said, “If you want to see what time of year it is, look on the calendar. If you want to see what time of night it is, look at the clock. If you want to see what day you’re living in, look where the Jews Israelites are. That’s God’s timepiece“; He set no certain time for us Gentiles.

In Newsletter 919 we observed that Scripture has provided a series of FIXED days, FIXED dates and FIXED times which we can plot on a calendar to place the events that occupied the last week of our Lord’s life on earth, establish the precise day of His crucifixion, and “things which must be” according to prophecy. There remains considerable confusion among the most eminent scholars concerning dates, days and years, “but in the days of the Voice of the seventh angel the mystery of God should be finished as He has declared to His servants the prophets.” The Voice is still speaking in the heart of Christ’s end-time Bride confirming FIXED dates, days and times thus resolving the debate.

Preparations for the Passover began long before Nisan 14. A month previously bridges and roads had been repaired for the use of the pilgrims. This was also the time for administering the ordeal of jealousy to women suspected of adultery, for burning the red heifer (Numbers 19:1-10), and for boring the ears of those who wished to remain in servitude—and other preliminary arrangements such as whitewashing sepulchres (Matthew 23:27). Then, two weeks before the other two great festivals, the flocks and herds were to be tithed, the Temple treasury-chests publicly opened and emptied (John 11:55; I Corinthians 11:27-28).

On Nisan 10 Jesus entered into Jerusalem as King of the Judeans, not ‘Jews’, as Heir of David’s royal line, with all of the symbolic, typic and prophetic import. Not the warrior Son of David anticipated by Israel after the flesh riding a white horse in proud triumph over Rome but on an ass’s foal in the “meek” rule of peace (Matthew 21:1-11). On Nisan 10 each family was to select a male lamb of the first year without blemish, typing Christ. It was to be separated from the rest of the flock four days and kept in a prominent place within view as Christ was under examination four days and His spotless innocence declared before the world prior to His cruel execution.

Brother Branham, whose commission was to “restore the faith once delivered to the apostolic saints” (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Jude 3) among whom were the writers of the New Testament said: “Jesus Messiah, rode into the city of Jerusalem, triumph, on the back of a white mule on Palm Sunday, April the second, AD30″ [Nisan 10; Daniel 9:25] (The Seventy Weeks of Daniel, p. 91:80-88). This was a FIXED day and date which the Prophet confirms by the prophetic years of Daniel 9:26 and proves mathematically by the astronomical record of God’s first Bible, The Witness of the Stars:

“All of God’s system is put up by laws . . . Let’s take the world . . . every twenty-four hours it makes a complete revolution, so perfect, that we have never been able, with all of our science, to make a watch to keep perfect time. Every once in a while, the best watches they ever make, in the run of a year, will gain or lose many minutes. But the world never fails but what she’s right there on the second. It’s so perfect till the scientists today, the astronomers can tell you in twenty years from now, or fifty years from now, just exactly the sun and the moon will pass one another. When it turns its twenty-four hour circle, and it turns its time around the orbit for a season, it does not miss a tick. Hallelujah. It’s perfectly, because it’s running according to the law of God.”

“They know just exactly when that tide will go out just to the minute, because they know what time the moon drops. And God’s got everything set in order by a law. And when that moon goes down, away goes the tide with it. When that moon comes up, here comes the tide with it. And they know exactly, by timing, when that moon will go down. They can put it on a almanac calendar for years ahead, and tell you to the minute when that tide will start dropping. Sure, because that’s the way the Moon is going out, because it is set in the order of God’s law” (Ever Present Water from the Rock, #14:6, par 118-120).

In delivering The Revelation of the Seven Seals Brother Branham quoted Matthew 24:1-3 and said: “Now, let’s stop there. These three verses, it took place actually on Tuesday afternoon, April the fourth, AD30. And the first two verses took place on the afternoon of April the fourth, at AD30, and the third verse taken place on Tuesday evening of the same day [Nisan 12]. . . Then He went up on the mountain and set down. See? That there He starts it’s in the afternoon. And then when they did, they asked Him up there, said, “We want to know about some things” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 412:1-419:7; 4:86:3).

On Nisan 13 the Israelites carefully cleared their houses of leaven, solemnly burning all they had gathered to ensure it would not corrupt the seven-day feast of Unleavened Bread, the only bread their forebears had been able to eat on the first seven days of the flight from Egypt. Leaven types iniquity—the remnant nature of the “old man” that ruled our past lives (Ephesians 4:22-24) thus we ought continually to search our soul so as to cast out every unclean thought.

Nisan 14 was the day of preparation for the sabbath meals of the holy convocation of Nisan 15, the first day of the feast of Unleavened Bread. In this way it was synonymous with Friday which was the day of preparation for the weekly sabbath meals since it was forbidden to kindle a fire on the sabbath (Exodus 16:5, 22-23; Leviticus 23:5-8). According to the reckoning of the Temple that year, the first day of the feast fell upon the weekly sabbath so it was a high holy day. The lamb was to be killed on the eve of Nisan 14 which was the interval between the sun’s commencing to decline and its actual disappearance. This gave a sufficient period for the numerous lambs that had to be killed, and agrees with the traditional account that on the eve of the Passover the daily evening sacrifice was offered an hour, or, if it fell on a Friday, two hours, before the usual time because the following day would be the sabbath, a double sabbath.

John 19:14, 31, 41-42, “Now it was the preparation of the Passover; it was about the sixth hour [past 9.00am, the time of the morning sacrifice, and approaching noon]: and Pilate said to the Judeans, Behold your King! . . . [Jesus died at about 3.00pm which was the time of the evening sacrifice] . . . The Judeans therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the Cross on the sabbath day, for that sabbath day was an high day [and no bodies were allowed to remain hanging on the tree], besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away . . . Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had ever been laid. There they laid Jesus because of the Jews’ preparation day; for the tomb was nigh at hand”.

But the Temple reckoning erred that year. Jesus accused the scribes and Pharisees “you transgress the commandment of God by your tradition [the Talmud or ‘Oral Torah’ so-called], making the commandment of God of none effect so that you worship in vain, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men(Matthew 15:1-9). He restored the faith of Moses that had been perverted with Pharisaism which became Talmudism, which became Medieval Rabbinism, which became Modern Rabbinism that is now called Judaism. His antitype Brother Branham restored the apostolic faith (Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11), “finished the mystery of God” (Revelation 10:7) and “revealed the Son of man, Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today, and forever” by the same signs and wonders (Luke 17:28-30; Hebrews 4:12; 13:8).

During the captivity the Judeans transformed the ancient Babylonian religion and mercantile system into the Talmud; they adopted Babylonian names for their months, changed year’s beginning from Nisan to Tishri, and instead of commencing months according to God’s synchrony by calculation from new Moon to new Moon, they adopted the Babylonian method of starting each new month by visually sighting the first crescent of a new Moon as rabbis and Muslims do to this day.

There is an astronomical new Moon or month commencing after the conjunction of Sun, Earth and Moon that may be easily and accurately calculated, and a crescent new Moon or month that must be observed with the eye, and those observations and the testimonies of witnesses thoroughly examined to determine the beginnings of the spring season, Nisan 1, then confirmed by calculation, accepted and finally announced by the Sanhedrin. However, a new Moon cannot be seen, and stays concealed from one to two days in the Middle East so that the sighting of the new crescent in Jerusalem typically occurs between sixteen to forty hours after the conjunction. If the crescent moon appeared during the night, it could be seen about 18 hours after conjunction. However, if it developed during daylight hours, the observer had to wait till nightfall to see it, possibly extending the witness to two days.

In the days of our Lord the nation and Temple employed the Babylonian system of establishing the new Moon by sighting the first crescent, while some calculated new Moons according to God’s first Bible, so with two calendars there were two Passovers separated by one or two days. In Christendom to this day we find the Orthodox churches celebrate their Christmas on or about January 7 which is December 25 in the Julian calendar while Rome’s Gregorian calendar has its December 25 and Christmas thirteen days ahead of the Julian calendar. Orthodox churches observe Easter after the Jewish Passover as required by the First Nicaea Council and in order to maintain what they see as the Biblical sequence of Christ’s Passion, while Romish churches ignore this requirement.

Christians meanwhile know that Jesus Christ fulfilled the Passover two thousand years ago. Neither Easter nor Christmas is “the faith of our Chief Cornerstone and His apostles and prophets” (Ephesians 2:20). These are pagan festivals adopted by the Judaeo-Roman Catholic false church, and we observe neither. Brother Branham said: “Every day in the year ought to be an Easter . . . a thrill day of the resurrection” (Greatest News Flash in History, #61-0424).

For two thousand years the Jew’s confusion has had theologians at wits end trying to reconcile the Judaeo-Roman ‘Good Friday’ crucifixion with the Gospels and with calendars to establish the correct date of Jesus’ death. The mystery is, how Jesus could observe Passover with His disciples in the upper room (Mark 14:14-17) and also be entombed in the same year at the time of the national Passover which took place on Nisan 15 (John 19:14-31)? Since the observance of two calendars was a common part of Jewish life, the Gospel writers make no specific mention that two conflicting calendars existed. Since Jesus was arrested on the night after He ate the Passover with His disciples and the Jews observed the holy convocation of Nisan 15 on a seventh day sabbath in the year of His death (John 19:14-31), they must have sighted the first crescent two days after the new Moon.

Solar and lunar tables posted at the United States Naval Observatory (USNO) website offer astronomical data covering the possible years of the three years of Jesus’ ministry. As the original URL for usno.navy.mil, is no longer active, please visit judaismvschristianity.com. This data is said to be accurate to within one to two hours. These FIXED days, FIXED dates and FIXED times are given in Universal Time (UT). Take particular note of the days of the week:

AD29 Vernal Equinox: Tuesday, March 22, 4:00pm
First New Moon on or after Equinox: Saturday, April 2, 5:00pm

AD30 Vernal Equinox: Wednesday, March 22, 10:00pm
First New Moon on or after Equinox: Wednesday, March 22, 6:00pm

AD31 Vernal Equinox: Friday, March 23, 3:00am
First New Moon on or after Equinox: Tuesday, April 10, 12:00 noon

According to the dates and times from the USNO, the new Moon occurred on the same night as the Equinox in AD30. (Jerusalem local time for the new Moon was 8:00pm, and for the Equinox, midnight). Since a new Moon and the Equinox occurred on the same day, a new month and New Year began on Wednesday night, March 22, UT). Converting UT to Bible Time: Wednesday night, March 22 becomes Thursday, Nisan 1 because the Hebrews reckon their days from sunset to sunset (arbitrarily 6.00 pm) instead of from midnight and they are also +2 hours ahead of UT, effectively gaining half a calendar day. Calculating astronomically new Moon to new Moon, New Year’s Day AD30 (Nisan 1) began on Thursday and Passover (Nisan 15) also occurred on Thursday. Astronomers, the USNO and the Prophet use Julian years. The Roman Province of Judea and the Temple established the new Moon or month by sighting the new crescent. A new Moon cannot be seen, and stays concealed from one to two days in the Middle East so that the sighting of the new crescent in Jerusalem typically occurs between sixteen to forty hours after the conjunction. We have set forth Jesus’ activities as they might have happened in the week before Calvary.

As Israel’s first Passover signalled deliverance from Egyptian bondage the nation’s last Passover heralded deliverance from the Law of sin and death.

The Bible clearly states that Jesus ate the Passover with His disciples on the night of Nisan 15 (Mark 14:12-18; Luke 22) before He was arrested, interrogated, sentenced and crucified. The Bible also indicates He died on the cross just before the national Passover which took place on Nisan 15 [by the Babylonian or First Crescent calendar] (John 18:28). This apparent conflict is resolved when we recognize the Judeans used two calendars; thus there were two Passovers in Crucifixion week.

As Friday night settled upon them, Jesus and three disciples went into the Garden of Gethsemane (Mark 14:32). There He was arrested: His trial began that night and He was crucified at 9:00am and died around 3:00pm. The Jews celebrated their national Passover on the sabbath night while Jesus lay in the tomb.

The Bible does not indicate anything unusual about Jesus eating Passover or beginning the Feast of Unleavened Bread at a time that was not in harmony with the national Passover (compare Matthew 26:17 with Mark 14:12), so there was nothing strange in killing the Passover lamb on late Thursday afternoon and eating the lamb on Friday night before Friday morning even though the national Passover lamb was killed one day later that Friday afternoon.

The Gospels are silent on this question as the dating of Passover was a common conflict among religious sects in Israel so that a discussion regarding the presence of two calendars was common knowledge in Judea. However, we find that John 12 dates Jesus’ last week by the Babylonian calendar and Mark 14 uses the astronomical new Moon calendar.

This explains why there is an apparent conflict between the Gospels of Mark and John. Once we understand which calendars they are using, their writings are in perfect harmony and clearly indicate that two Passovers were celebrated during the year Jesus was crucified. The Creator certainly knew the true time for Passover and His actions affirm what is Truth, for Jesus is the Truth (John 14:6).

History says the Jewish nation synchronized Nisan 1, at the time of Christ, with the sighting of the first crescent of a new moon. Depending on the visibility afforded by weather, the position of the Sun and the season, the first sighting of the crescent of a new Moon in Jerusalem occurs between sixteen and forty hours after a new Moon.

It is impossible for us to precisely determine when the new Moon crescent was sighted in AD30; we deduce the probable date from these facts. The sighting of the new Moon crescent is most probable two days after a new Moon; Jesus was arrested on the night after He ate the Passover with His disciples and the Jews observed Nisan 15 on a seventh day sabbath the year of His death (John 19:14-31). Thus the sighting of the first crescent was two days after a new Moon, and Nisan 1 had to occur on the sabbath of March 25 according to the Babylonian calendar.

Jesus was crucified on Friday afternoon, April 7, AD30 which is precisely the year required by Daniel 9:25-26. Therefore, the national Passover lamb would have been killed near sundown on Friday, Nisan 14 and eaten on the sabbath, Nisan 15, Friday night by western reckoning. The important point to remember is that the Lamb of God died on the Cross at about 3:00pm Friday afternoon and was buried before sundown because a double sabbath or high holy day was about to begin since Nisan 15 is a holy convocation (John 19:31).

We know the astronomical positions of the Sun and Moon for AD30. We also know that Jesus rested in the tomb over the sabbath and rose on the first day of the week (John 20:1; Acts 10:40). In addition we know that AD30 occurred precisely five days after 69 weeks of prophetic years from “from the going forth of the command to build and to restore Jerusalem” in 445BC (Daniel 9:25-26; Nehemiah 2; Daniel’s Seventieth Week, p. 91:80). This information leads to the solid conclusion that Jesus was crucified on Friday, April 7 (Nisan 14), AD30.

Jesus’ actions and the astronomical positions of the Sun, Earth and Moon are two witnesses that confirm this truth. AD30 is the only year that will satisfy the Scripture.

In Egypt the blood was to be sprinkled with a sprig of hyssop on the lintel and the two door-posts so that when the “angel of death” passed over the land all in the house were secure “under the blood of the lamb.” Hyssop is a common weed; it signifies common faith by which we flick a switch in expectation of light, knock in expectation of the door being opened, apply the Blood of Christ to our lives, and “ask what we will in His Name knowing He will do it” (John 14:12-14). [By the way, Hyssop is oregano: it contains ‘carvacrol‘ which has antimicrobial, antifungal, anti-bacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties whose effects on cancer cells elevate it to the level of a super-spice like turmeric].

The whole animal, without breaking a bone, was to be roasted on the cross of a spit. One bar passed through the body lengthwise and the cross bar passed through its shoulders. It was eaten by each household with unleavened bread and bitter herbs, to symbolise the bitterness of their bondage, the haste of their deliverance, and also to point forward to the manner in which Israel’s elect will have eternal fellowship in the Paschal Lamb.

Like the Lord’s Supper, all the circumcised must partake of this meal, wives and daughters came under the circumcision of their husband of father. In type and antitype it is Life to be under the blood and partake, and death to be out from under the Blood or to partake without faith, not discerning the Body of the Lord (I Corinthians 11:27-33). The Israelites were dressed as for a journey, garments girt, staff in hand and shoes on their feet as we must be dressed in the revelation of the end-time Message (Revelation 19:7-8). Only those free from condemnation, “circumcised in heart and ears,” rapture ready for the close of the Gentile dispensation and the flying of the Angel of death when Los Angeles sinks beneath the Pacific may observe the Lord’s Supper (Exodus 11:4; Revelation 14:6-11; 18:21-24).

Whatever was not consumed was burnt on the spot (Exodus 12:10; Revelation 2:22-24; 17:16; 18:8-9, 18; 19:20; 20:10, 14-15). As Israel gathered manna on six days and ate on seven, Brother Branham gathered the loose ends of PART-Word for which Christ interceded and “finished the mystery of God.” We now have the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication and must walk in the Light of the present Truth (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7; Deuteronomy 16:5-6).

All along the Court of the Temple up to the altar of burnt-offering priests stood in two rows, the one holding golden, the other silver bowls. In these the blood of the Paschal lamb, which each Israelite slew as representative of his company at the Paschal Supper, was caught by a priest, who handed it to his colleague, receiving back an empty bowl, and so the bowls with the blood were passed up to the priest at the altar, who jerked it in one jet at the base of the altar. By grace the souls of non-elect Israelites “martyred [through the Christian dispensation] for the Word of God and for the testimony of Moses and the Prophets” are preserved under the blood of the brazen altar pending the general resurrection and White Throne Judgment where they will be granted in to eternal Life (Revelation 6:9-11).

Leviticus 17:11-12, “The life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood [as evidence of the vicarious sacrifice of a life] that makes an atonement for the soul. Therefore I said to the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourns among you eat blood.”

Thus on that first Passover night the Israelites painted the chemistry of the blood above the entrance to their homes as a token in evidence that their ransom has been met, and the lives of all under the blood, along with their animals, would be preserved when the Angel of Death passed through Egypt. Sceptical women who continued to paint their faces, cut their hair, dress immodestly or in slacks and adorn themselves in jewellery, and men who let their hair grow uncut, continued to wear shorts and go mixed bathing or otherwise choose not to display the required token, whether Israelites or Egyptians, would rise the next morning to discover the firstborn of their household, even of their fowls and animals, quite dead.

A human beingObedience is better than sacrifice. Israel’s animal sacrifices “offered year by year continually could never make the comers thereunto perfect” or reconcile them to God because animals are simply a body and mortal spirit. They are not kin to man and with no soul cannot come back; their end is death so we may “kill and eat” (Deuteronomy 12:15-16). Being human, our sinless “near kinsmanJesus Christ, the antitypical Lamb of God, possessed a soul that comes back upon his elect as the Holy Spirit. Of course if God is three people, the second or third person could not come back upon us because neither of them is our kinsman, and as He is the Holy Spirit the Father could not die (Matthew 1:18, 20). But the sole Person of God manifest in flesh as Jesus Christ did die to perform the duty of KINSMAN Redeemer, and His soul is the Holy Spirit and Life (I Timothy 3:16).

Isaiah 63:3, “I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with Me: for I will tread them in My anger, and trample them in My fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon My garments, and I will stain all My raiment.” It is all of grace for God Himself was the sacrifice.

Like the ancient Israelites, Christians must display the evidence or Token of our redemption: not the painted chemistry of blood but the very Life of Christ that has come back upon and taken residence in us as Husband, bringing our soul under such preeminence to His Word that our lives are “written epistles” of the Word for this day (II Peter 1:12).

A significant allusion to the meaning of Passover-blood, as securing immunity from destruction, occurs in Ezekiel 9:4-6 which prophesied the destruction of the Temple by the Legions of General Titus in AD70. “The Man clothed with linen” was the Holy Spirit who “set a mark upon the foreheads” of elect Israelites sealed by the faith of Jesus Christ, so that they who were to “slay utterly old and young” might not “come near any.” The same symbolic command occurs in Revelation 7:2-3 wherein we learn that from World War I the Lord has restrained Armageddon until Israel, all 144,000, are born in one day. Under the Fifth Trumpet of Revelation 9:1-12 those without the Seal of God were “tormented five months” in World War I.

All adult men were to appear in God’s Presence on the first two days of the Passover feast with a burnt offering. The first Chagigah (which means “festive offering”) was given as a peace offering on Nisan 14, and divided between God, the priest, and the offerer who would share it with family and friends as part of the Paschal Supper that night. The second Chagigah was offered on Nisan 15, the first day of the feast of unleavened bread. Joyousness was to be one’s heartfelt demeanour throughout the eight days of the feast. Every Israelite who was physically able and not in a state of Levitical uncleanness or further distant than fifteen miles, was bound to appear in Jerusalem. Otherwise he should observe the second Passover one month later (Numbers 9:9-11). Since John 18:28 refers to verse 24 which shows that Jesus’ fate had been decided on the final session of the Sanhedrin in the morning, and that Annas was sending Him bound to Caiaphas, everything further, even to leading Him into the heathen Praetorium, was decided. So the feigned fear that they might be unable to eat the Passover if they contracted defilement by entering the house of a Gentile—Pilate’s judgment-hall—was a ruse, for the Passover lamb was not eaten before 6.00pm, which was the beginning of the next day, so that defilement in the morning would have ceased before the regular Passover. Annas, Caiaphas and the Sanhedrin hypocritically took cover under this excuse because if Pilate tried Jesus’ cause in the palace, the Sanhedrists would lack the aid of the fanatical faction they had assembled, and upon which they could count upon outside, in front of the palace.

Every sacrifice had prefigured Christ’s Work but only the Passover could so suitably commemorate His death, the great deliverance connected with it, and the great union and fellowship flowing from it. It was a sacrifice quite out of the order of all Levitical sacrifices for it had been instituted and observed before Levitical sacrifices existed, before the Law was given, before the Covenant was ratified by blood (Exodus 24) and was prefigured in the Garden of Eden and in the ram sacrificed in Isaac’s stead (Genesis 3:21; 22:14). Just as His priesthood was a real Old Testament priesthood after the prophetic and royal order of Melchisedec, so His sacrifice was a real Old Testament sacrifice, after the earlier prophetic Passover sacrifice by which Israel had become a royal nation.

After supper Jesus and His disciples repaired to the Garden of Gethsemane across the brook Kedron before the Mount of Olives, perhaps three quarters of a mile from the walls of Jerusalem. In time Judas and with him a great number of reliable fanatics with swords and staves came from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. And though the light of a full moon shone on the scene, they carried torches and lamps in case He or His followers should hide in the recesses of the garden or escape observation. But He whom they had come to take prisoner by violent means first overcame, and then willingly surrendered to them, stipulating only for the freedom of His followers. The mere fact that they did not possess the power of capital punishment would scarcely have restrained them from killing Jesus, as they afterwards stoned Stephen, and would have murdered Paul but for the intervention of the Roman garrison. It may have been that at this time their paramount object was to secure a public condemnation and execution, and to awaken the susceptibilities of the civil power against the movement Christ had initiated.

Here we have a foretaste of the fanatical opposition that will rise up against the “virgins” in the dark days after the end of the Gentile dispensation and the sinking of Los Angeles. Those of the world church system and the ‘hidden hand” will come against Christ’s end-time Bride, and eventually kill all who refuse their mark of the beast (I John 3:10-13; Revelation 13:15-18).

That afternoon of the first Passover day, “when the sixth hour [noon] was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour [3.00pm] when Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? Which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken Me? . . . And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. And the veil of the Temple was rent in twain, from the top to the bottom.” This, just about the time when the evening sacrifice had been offered, so that the incensing priest standing in the Holy Place must have witnessed the awful sight.

Earth’s axial displacement accompanied by earthquake and a darkening of the Sun at the close of the Hebrew dispensation is a shadow and type of the earthquake, tidal waves and ‘darkness that can be felt’ at the unprecedented convulsion of nature prophesied at the second crucifixion of the Word, the close of the Christian dispensation and the unfolding of the Sixth Seal (Isaiah 13:6-14; 34; Matthew 24:29-31; Luke 21:25-26; Revelation 6:12-17; 16:18-19).

A little later on in the evening of that same day (Matthew 27:57-61), a small band of mourners carried the body of the dead Saviour from the Cross to the rock-hewn tomb wherein no man had yet been laid. While another band emerged, amidst loud demonstrations, in a field across Kedron which had been marked out for the purpose. It was perhaps to this circumstance that Joseph of Arimathea owed the non-interference with his request for the body of Jesus, and Nicodemus and the women, that they could go undisturbed about the last sad offices of loving mourners. God said, “You shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest to the priest; and he shall wave the barley sheaf before the Lord to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the Sabbath [Nisan 16] the priest shall wave it” (Leviticus 23:10-11), accompanied by a burnt-offering of a “he lamb, without blemish, of the first year.” This sheaf was reaped in public the evening before it was offered [that is, on the sabbath of Nisan 15 following the close of the evening of Nisan 14]. It was to witness this ceremony that the crowd had gathered around ‘the elders,’ who took care that all was done according to tradition.

We will continue our study on shadows and types in another lesson in which we will introduce additional FIXED days, FIXED dates and FIXED times that will further assist us to make our calling and election sure by confirming God’s written Word with historical facts and the THUS SAITH THE LORD by our Brother William Branham, the Prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7. nl920.htm
