Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we appreciate each of you, our readers and subscribers. We thank you for feeding your soul from the Church Website this past year and look forward to your fellowship in 2017.

To see the old year out and the New Year in, contributing author Jonathan Gray reports how a chemical evolution theorist found that the parity code in DNA proves DNA was designed and created to maintain accurate copies and avoid changes in the information it carries and thus “reproduce its own kind forever” (Genesis 1:11, 24, 25).

We have some important items of current news, please read the links. Our feature article, “High Cloud Ring of Mystery,” shows how, through oversight many have missed the wood for the trees. We must recognize—and soon—that believing the Message without recognizing and becoming written epistles of its revelation is the mark of a foolish virgin.

May our Lord Jesus Christ be your special portion this year (Revelation 10:8-11; 19:7-9).

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.

Crashed Russian Jet Fragments pulled from Black Sea

December 26, 2016 — A Tupolev Tu-154 plane of the Russian Defense Ministry with 92 people on board crashed into the Black Sea near the city of Sochi on December 25, 2016. The plane was carrying members of the Alexandrov Ensemble, Russian servicemen and journalists, and Yelizaveta Glinka (known as Doctor Liza), Spravedlivaya Pomoshch [Just Aid] International Public Organisation director, to Russia’s Hmeymim air base in Syria. Fragments of the plane were found about 1.5km from Sochi coastline. On Monday, a nationwide day of mourning for the plane victims, red and white carnations piled up outside the Moscow office of the Alexandrov Ensemble. One singer who did not get on the plane for personal reasons said he was devastated at the loss of so many talented colleagues.

Soloist Vadim Ananyev said he had received condolences from all over Russia and from abroad. “We were loved all over the world, never mind the political situation,” he said. Full story: images and commentary

Russian Ambassador’s Murder justified, even praised across the West

December 23, 2016 — In the week leading up to the brazen, cold-blooded murder of Russian Ambassador Andrei Karlov in Ankara, Turkey, the United States repeatedly and publicly threatened ‘retaliation’ against Russia for allegedly ‘hacking‘ the 2016 US presidential elections. During the same week, Syrian forces backed by Russian airpower and Iranian ground support finally ended the occupation of the northern city of Aleppo by armed militants who invaded in 2012. The inevitable liberation of Aleppo was accompanied by apoplectic hysteria across Western political, policy and pundit circles calling for everything from additional sanctions on Russia to threats against the lives of Russians . . .

War criminal ObamaThe New York Daily News in an article titled, “Assassination of Russian Ambassador Andrei Karlov was not terrorism, but retribution for Vladimir Putin’s war crimes,” connects the dots plotted out by papers like the Washington Post. It bluntly states:

The image of an assassin standing over the dying body of Russian ambassador Andrei Karlov is a shocking one—but not a surprising one.

As Vladimir Putin’s man in Turkey, Karlov was the public face of that murderous dictator’s war crimes around the globe and of oppression at home. Andrei Karlov is the human embodiment of policies that deployed bunker busters to kill babies, sent fighter planes on scorched earth bombing runs that destroyed a whole city, aided Syrian madman Bashar al-Assad in his campaign that has killed hundreds of thousands, and even ordered attacks on UN aid workers. Full story: journal-neo.org

Comment: The “murderous dictator” is homosexual Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Obama; the USA-NATO, CIA, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, Australia, et al, their air forces and leaders that recruit, train, arm, fund, direct, protect and supply these proxy armies are responsible for the killings, bombings in Syria and around the world (journal-neo.org . . . read it all).

Last week saw a story on Herschel Grynszpan and his assassination of the German Ambassador to France in 1938. Last Wednesday saw the assassination of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov. The story of Grynszpan cannot be a ‘coincidence’ . . . Kabala?

Neither the Money Power nor Rome is willing to release global hegemony. The dastardly murder of Russian Ambassador Andrei Karlov, the deaths of the Alexandrov Ensemble, the shootdown of MH17 and a Russian airliner, the Ukraine coup, and false flag black ops around the world, were clearly orchestrated from the same office. The DNC and Clinton websites were not ‘hacked‘ by anyone: this was an internal ‘leak.’ Obama’s insinuation of Russian interference in the presidential election betrays his confidence in the dumbing-down and brainwashing of US citizens. This thorough analysis of computer data accompanying a joint statement released on October 7 by the Department of Homeland Security and the Director of National Intelligence ridicules Jewish president Obama’s nullifies allegations accusing Russia of interfering with US elections and is actually an attack upon President-elect Donald Trump.


NATO Weaponry and Personnel in East Aleppo

December 28, 2016 — Huge stockpiles of weaponry and ammunition, many with NATO markings, were discovered in East Aleppo when the Al-Nusra militants, a local branch of Al Qaida, were pushed out of the city by Syrian forces . . . NATO personnel were . . . allowed to leave with the militants on the buses provided according to the agreement, to spare NATO the embarrassment . . . before they left they executed more than hundred Syrian soldiers and hundreds of civilians. We found their bodies. This is all documented . . . The news in Europe is a real problem because they report exactly the opposite of the real facts in Syria. We were able to liberate around 100.000 civilians who were held hostage by terrorists in Aleppo. A lot of them were taken hostage for more than four years . . . Full story: freewestmedia.com

Obama puppetComment: Syrian authorities have provided the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) with evidence of mustard gas use by militants in Aleppo province (freewestmedia.com). When Obama entered the White House on 20 January 2009, there already was a plea in the pipeline from the Syrian government for urgently needed food-aid to address the all-time-record drought there that had decimated Syrian agriculture. Obama’s Administration never even answered it. Well before the Arab Spring demonstrations in 2011, Obama was hoping for turmoil in Syria and the overthrow of Assad—lots of starving Syrians would be just the thing. The drought was in all probability induced by HAARP to clear the road to Russia.

Revelation 6:8, “Behold a pale horse: his rider is named Death, and Hell follows with him. And power was given to them over the worldly part of the earth, to kill with sword and with hunger and with death and with brutal, bestial man, savage, ferocious men of the earth.” This is the fruit of apostate ‘Christendom’ . . . thanks to the Liar-in-Chief.


‘Countering Disinformation & Propaganda Act’ now Law

dissent

December 23, 2016 — Today, I have signed into law S. 2943, the “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017.” This Act authorizes fiscal year 2017 appropriations principally for the Department of Defense and for Department of Energy . . . continues many critical authorizations necessary to ensure that we are able to sustain our momentum in countering the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant [cease recruiting, arming, training, directing, funding and feeding them – Ed] . . . more flexibility in countering cyber-attacks and our adversaries’ use of unmanned aerial vehicles” [Obama’s specialty] . . . the “Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act” passed in the Senate [on December 8 was], quietly inserted inside the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report. And . . . now Law.

The first priority is developing a whole-of-government strategy for countering the foreign propaganda and disinformation being waged against us and our allies by our enemies . . . Second . . . train local journalists and provide grants and contracts to NGOs, civil society organizations, think tanks, private sector companies, media organizations, and other experts outside the US government with experience in identifying and analyzing the latest trends in foreign government disinformation techniques . . .

US abstains as UN demands End to Israeli Settlements

December 24, 2016 — The United States Friday allowed a UN Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlement construction to be adopted, defying extraordinary pressure from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government in alliance with President-elect Donald Trump.

The Security Council approved the resolution with 14 votes, with the US abstaining. There was applause in the chamber following the vote, which represented perhaps the final bitter chapter in the years of antagonism between President Barack Obama’s administration and Netanyahu’s government. In an intense flurry of diplomacy that unfolded in the two days before the vote, a senior Israeli official had accused the United States of abandoning the Jewish state with its refusal to block the resolution with a veto . . . Full story: cnn.com

Comment: The realization of UN Resolution 181 is near to hand. With the US abstaining, the Security Council unanimously passed the resolution, which also calls for the limiting of the Jewish state to the borders it had before the 1967 war. This is in strict accord with Old and New Testament prophecy. I suspect that in a matter of months the Israeli state will be utterly defeated, and the mass exodus of non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews will enable the descendants of Jacob to return to the Land of their Covenant for redemption. I expect Jewish Obama will still be president in April when mainland USA is devastated, subsequently defeated and briefly occupied.


Zionist False Flags in France Exposed

December 26, 2016 — What Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson won’t tell you about 9/11, 7/7, Paris, Nice, Berlin, et al attacks is that these extraordinarily coincidental false flag psyops were planned by the “state of All-Judaan” and executed by Jewish-ruled US-NATO in the Judaeo-Roman Talmudic war for global hegemony. Cooperating in the short term, Rome will recover her Empire in North Africa and the Middle East while Israel’s neighbours will be destroyed for a Greater Israel. Mid-term Rome will rule from Jerusalem over Judaeo-Communist Eurasia in the east and the Judaeo-Catholic West (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:11-15). The rupture of Revelation 13:14-18 and 17:11 – 18:20 will see Russia re-communised, the US mainland and Vatican City State annihilated, followed by the consummation.

Why do ISIS/Al Qaeda spare countries (Jewish-ruled USA, Israel, Britain, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia) supposedly fighting them on the ground and only target those supplying them with intelligence, money and weapons to do their work in the Middle East (Belgium, Holland, Germany, France, and Italy)?

Comment: By carefully and critically examining the available evidence and official narrative, this Berlin truck attack hoax can be quickly exposed.


Rare Russian Books on Jewish Ritual Murder Court Cases

September 18, 2016 — The English translation of “A Memorandum on Ritual Murders” by V.I. Dal is now available. It includes a new bibliography and two chapters taken from G.G. Zamyslovsky’s book “The Murder of Andrei Yushchinsky”.

Unknown to most, the reality of Jewish ritual murders has been repeatedly proven in modern court proceedings according to modern rules of evidence. This happened in Russia many times during the 19th and 20th centuries, far removed from any medieval obscurantism. One of the most famous trials occurred in the Russian town of Velizh in the early 19th century after the mutilated and exsanguinated corpse of a little Christian boy had been found in a forest. Although the Jewish culprits would eventually be acquitted, the ritual nature of the murder was firmly established. This trial is described in detail in this book, along with many other cases of ritual murders perpetrated by inhuman sadists from the fanatical Jewish sect of the Hasidim. This book constitutes a valuable historical record of the Jewish ritual murder question from the 19th-century Russian perspective.

“A Memorandum on Ritual Murders” was written in 1844 by V.I. Dal, a famous and highly respected Russian linguist, and close friend of Alexander Pushkin. Dal’s mammoth explanatory dictionary of the Russian language is still in print. In addition to describing the Velizh trial and over 130 other cases of Jewish sadistic atrocities, Dal quotes passages from the Talmud which justify murders of Christians, and provides accounts of baptized Jews about rites and practices of their former brethren . . .

Dal told the truth here because no one could censor him. In Czarist Russia, one could speak freely on this subject, which is no longer the case in the present-day “democratic” Russian Federation. Full story: jrbooksonline.com


Scientist forced into a U-Turn

By Jonathan Gray © 2016 all rights reserved

“We’ve made an awful mistake!” Dismay was in Dean’s voice. “A student has knocked our theory to bits!” Dr. Dean Kenyon, Professor of Biology (Emeritus) at San Francisco State University, was one of the leading chemical evolution theorists in the world. He co-authored “Biochemical Predestination,” which claimed:

1. that the evolution of life was inevitable . . .
2. that proteins to produce living cells were formed directly by forces of attraction between their parts . . .
3. that proteins are just formed together (self-assemble) in chains, directly from amino acids, without any DNA assembly instructions.

His theory was accepted with enthusiasm by the evolutionary scientific community. But just five years after publishing, Kenyon suddenly had serious doubts. It began when one of his students asked, “How could the first proteins have been assembled without the help of genetic instructions?” (i.e. Proteins were the necessary information to build the first cell).

Then DNA came into the picture. This would prove fatal to Kenyon’s molecular evolution theory. Kenyon confesses, “The more I conducted my own studies, including a period of time at NASA-Ames Research Center, the more it became apparent there were multiple difficulties with the chemical evolution account. And further experimental work showed that amino acids do not have the ability to order themselves into any biologically meaningful sequences. The more I thought about the alternative that was being presented in the criticism, and the enormous problem that all of us who had worked on this field had neglected to address, the problem of the origin of genetic information itself, then I really had to re-assess my whole position regarding origins” (Unlocking the Mysteries of Life).

What he now had to address was this: What was the source of the biological information in DNA?

“If one could get at the origin of the messages, the encoded messages within the living machinery, then you would really be onto something far more intellectually satisfying than this chemical evolution theory” (Ibid.)

The astonishing fact is that inside every microscopic-sized cell, machines work together to accomplish specific jobs and are shepherded by other specially shaped machines to precise locations where they are needed.

Learning this, Kenyon exclaimed, “This is absolutely mind-boggling, to perceive at this scale of size, such a finely tuned apparatus, a device, that bears the marks of intelligent design and manufacture!”

Observable Evidence of a Master Designer

This is observable evidence of thoughtful, programmed designing by some Superior Mind. Evidence of intelligently organized patterns. Music in genes: Something else. Did you know this? It was recently discovered that DNA is linked to music! If you like music, but think that you can’t carry a tune, you may be wrong. Respected geneticist, Susumo Ono, believes he’s discovered music in genes—particularly human genes, fish genes and rabbit genes. Susumo is a researcher in DNA. He asked himself: If we were to assign a musical note to each chemical on the DNA strand and string those notes together and play them, what would DNA sound like?

So he did this—and the result was amazing. He discovered musical patterns of notes that again reveal intelligence.

Susumo Ono was so astonished that he took his findings to musicians. And musicians, in turn, were astonished to hear echoes of Bach, of Schubert, of Mozart in DNA music. Using the same formula for converting DNA into music, Dr Ono worked backwards and translated Chopin’s funeral march into chemical symbols. It came out cancer!

Skeptics naturally point out that these strands of DNA produce only a string of single notes; it is the musicians who fill in the rhythm and the harmony. But the bottom line is this: Whichever way you look at it, the PATTERNS of single notes testify to intelligence as the source of DNA. Certainly it is not from a blind, accidental force in nature.

Identical to Written Language

But there’s more, much more. Scientists at Bell Laboratories conducted studies on the mathematical language in the DNA molecule. And what did they find? Its mathematical pattern is identical to that of conversational language.

Concerning DNA, Charles Thaxton states: “A structural identity has been discovered between the genetic message on DNA and the written messages of a human language.” (Charles Thaxton, “A New Design Argument,” Cosmic Pursuit 1, no. 2, Spring 1998).

Hupert Yockey explains: “There is an identity of structure between DNA (and protein) and written linguistic messages. Since we know by experience that intelligence produces written messages, and no other cause is known, the implication, according to the adductive method, is that intelligent cause produced DNA and protein. The significance of this result lies in the security of it, for it is much stronger than if the structures were merely similar. We are not dealing with anything like a superficial resemblance between DNA and a written text. We are not saying DNA is like a message. Rather, DNA is a message. True design thus returns to biology” (Hubert P. Yockey, “Journal of Theoretical Biology“).

Since there is no doubt in anyone’s mind it takes intelligence to write a language, it is evident that it took intelligence to write the DNA code.

Intelligently Designed ‘sentences’ impressed from the Outside

Professor Dean Kenyon was asked if DNA comes in intelligently designed ‘sentences’.

INTERVIEWER: “And is it true that when scientists peer into the microscopic world of DNA, they find not mere random arrangements, but well-written ‘instruction books’?”

KENYON: “Yes. Masterpieces of immense intricacy and subtlety.”

INTERVIEWER: “And you argue that these biological ‘sentences’ in DNA could not have arisen merely by material means, as evolutionists suggest?”

KENYON: “No. Just as the chemistry and physics of ink and paper do not determine the order of symbols in a printed text, but that order must be impressed on the ink from the ‘outside,’ so also the order of the bases, or sub-units, in DNA [adenine, thymine, guanine, and cytosine, or A, T, G, and C as commonly represented] is not determined by the known chemical tendencies of these individual sub-units, but instead appears to have been impressed from the ‘outside’ on the sub-units to create just those sequences that make biological sense.

The fantastic complexity and orderliness of the DNA code—condensed into an incredibly tiny size—suggests the work of a brilliant intellect rather than chance processes. It suggests that much thought has gone into their design—just as human beings use intelligence to design and construct computers, Jumbo jets, space craft and other intricate equipment. If radio signals were to be received from outer space, they would be understood as evidence of an intelligent source. Why then should we not regard the message sequence on the DNA molecule as prima facie evidence of an intelligent source?

Designed not to Evolve But that is not all! Gene code letters have built in error protection! Genes store information in long strings of DNA, in the form of chemical letters, called A, T, C and G. So that genes can be accurately copied, each gene consists of two parallel strands of DNA held together by links between the code letters of one strand and those of the other strand.

The two strands are not identical. That is, A’s do not link to A’s, and so on. Instead, they are complimentary. A’s always link to T’s; C’s always link to G’s.

Dr. Donall Mac Donaill of Trinity College, Dublin, studied that pattern of linkages between letters. And he found that they form a parity code similar to computer codes, to minimise mistakes during the electronic transfer of information. (Heatseekers Review, September 18, 2002).

Now is the moment of truth. No one would be so naïve as to believe modern electronic parity codes could have evolved by chance. They were carefully planned by software designers. The parity code found in DNA is further evidence the genetic code was deliberately created. It also reminds us that DNA is designed to maintain accurate copies and avoid changes in the information it carries. This means it was designed to NOT evolve. But rather to reproduce its own kind forever (Genesis 1:11, 24, 25). Come to think of it, wouldn’t that make evolution scientifically impossible?


High Cloud Ring of Mystery

Recent issues of this Newsletter have emphasized the importance of maturing from believing Brother Branham’s Message to understanding and receiving its revelation by the Spirit in the continuity of Scripture from Genesis to Revelation.

Some might ask, “Does this matter?”

Yes, insofar as it can distinguish a wise virgin from many foolish virgins! All are earnest contenders: some for the apostolic faith, others for what they sincerely believe is that faith based upon “what the tapes say,” or what God’s Holy Bible says. In his “Essay on Criticism” Alexander Pope wrote, “to err is human; to forgive, divine,” and each of us is at times sincerely wrong so we need to check, double check, and “trim our lamps” because we live under the Seventh Vial of the antitype of Israel’s Ordeal of Jealousy in Numbers 5. You who are God’s House will be established in strength by faith in His Word before Los Angeles sinks. Others will submit in the ‘squeeze’ or suffer martyrdom. A dress rehearsal is now taking place to program the unrighteous self-righteous.

Speaking of the Smyrnean Church Age the Prophet said, “Death was not only the seed of the false vine but even in the true vine there was a creeping paralysis and impotence because they had already drifted from the unadulterated truth of the first few years after Pentecost and no true believer is any stronger and spiritually healthy and alive than his knowledge of and adherence to the pure Word of God, as seen by multitudes of examples in the Old Testament. Organization was growing apace, confirming and augmenting the death of the membership, for Holy Ghost leadership was deposed and the Word was replaced by creeds, dogmas and man-made ritual” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 113:1).

Carnal men and women fully versed in the “letter” of the Message, some former believers—even ministers without the “Spirit,” have built an armoury against you who have not prepared your soul but squandered God’s grace. Remember Revelation 3:17-20? Some are trying to do God a service without it being His will; the weapons of their warfare are carefully designed to shake your memory, affection, imagination, reasoning and conscience, and plant doubt in God’s prophet and his Message, stripping what little faith you possess. They will succeed unless you yield so that God can establish you in the strength of His Word by faith which is a clear understanding.

God commanded His prophet not to explain the ‘third pull’ or the mysteries of the Seven Thunders in Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals—still “hid from the wise and prudent [in the Spoken Word of the Seventh Seal] and revealed unto babes”—the Prophet’s verbal expression was eminently suited to camouflage. In illustrating these points we will show that the Cloud made two appearances, one of which fulfilled his vision, showed the end of the Laodicea Church Age and the second or ‘parousia’ Coming of Christ in the prophetic office Son of man, King of kings and Judge.

> The Cloud: Many people focus on the scientific explanation, or lack thereof, surrounding the cloud. These issues pale in comparison to the real issue: Are William Branham’s accounts of the cloud’s formation credible? And if they are not, then where does that leave a person with respect to William Branham’s overall credibility?

Because he was deeply concerned about the confused claims published by believethesign.com who neither understand nor believe the heavenly sign, the pastor wrote:

> Also of importance is the issue of the difference in dates pertaining to the Cloud’s appearance and WMB’s hunting trip. believethesign.com

Science Magazine, 19 April, 1963Brother Branham must have been home in Tucson on February 28, 1963 preparing for his hunting trip, unaware of this public appearance of “the sign of Christ’s imminent ‘parousia’ Coming,” Daniel 7:9, Revelation 1:14 and 10:7. Dr. James E. McDonald of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, University of Arizona wrote: “Approximately 175 letters have now been received from persons who observed the stratospheric cloud. Correspondence with those who indicated that they had taken photos has led to a present total of 85 photographs from 35 different localities in Arizona and New Mexico (Stratospheric Cloud over Northern Arizona; and Status of Investigation of the Northern Arizona Stratospheric Cloud of February 28, 1963). Daniel 7:10-14; Zechariah 14:4-5, Matthew 24:3, 30-31 and Luke 21:24-33 foretell a similar public sign over the Mount of Olives after the end of the Gentile dispensation. It will announce Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel heralding the “Kingdom of God” on earth for which His disciples sought before their re-birth (Acts 1:6). We go to “the Kingdom of heaven” for the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the Sky (Revelation 19:9).

An article in Life Magazine (May 17, 1963)—“High Cloud Ring of Mystery” over Arizona—caught Brother Norman’s attention while visiting and he borrowed the magazine. When Brother Branham came by the following Sunday to take the Normans to dinner, he recognized the Cloud as that into which he was caught up from Sunset Mountain where he was hunting with Brothers Gene Norman and Fred Sothman on about March 8, 1963. He borrowed the magazine and reported his discovery to the Church on Saturday, June 1, 1963 in his sermon “Come, follow Me,” p. 2:13-16. Also see “Standing in the Gap, p. 21:82; June 23, and “Is Your Life worthy of the Gospel? p. 1:6-7, June 30.

This Cloud appeared twice, and Brother Branham could not have known of its appearance on February 28 or these photographs before May 26. Let us discern the logos from Brother Branham’s rhema:

Come, follow Me, p. 2:13-16; June 1, 1963: “When I come [to Tucson], one thing, was by a vision, that [the Lord showed me in Jeffersonville on December 22, 1962 in which] I was standing above [about forty miles northeast of] Tucson up here when a blast went off. Brother Fred was there [but Brother Branham was alone picking sand burrs from his trouser legs] when it went off. [Brother Branham is speaking of the fulfilment of Revelation 10:1-4 on March 8, 1963 when he was hunting with Brothers Sothman and Norman at Sunset Mountain in the Coronado Forest]. And they [anonymous members of the public] took that picture [of the Cloud on February 28], you know, in the sky. And I didn’t think much about it, never noticed it [until I saw “Life” magazine]. So it begin to impress me somehow the other day. And Brother Norman, Norma’s father here, told me, said, “Did you notice this?”

“And just as I looked [at the magazine], right there was them angels just as plain as they could be, setting right there in that picture. You see? I looked to see when it was, and it was time, same ’bout day or two before or, day or two after I was up there [in Sunset Mountain]. I looked where it was at: northeast of Flagstaff [200 miles nor’-nor’-west from Tucson as the crow flies], or Prescott [165 miles nor-west from Tucson as the crow flies], which is below Flagstaff. Well, that’s just where we was at (See?), just exactly.” [Yes, “you was at” Tucson preparing for your hunt [in March] whereas the Cloud was 200 miles nor’-nor’-west of you as the crow flies in February]!

“Twenty-six miles high; why, vapour can’t go for over four miles high, or five, moisture, any kind of fog or anything. You see? Planes fly at nineteen thousand. That’s to get up above all the clouds. You see? And nineteen thousand is about four miles high. This is twenty-six miles high and thirty miles across it, and in the shape of the pyramid, if you’ve looked at the picture [of the Cloud that appeared over Prescott and Flagstaff on February 28, 1963].”

“And on the right-hand side, as I told you I noticed, outstanding, that Angel, there He is, chest out, wings back, coming right in, just exactly the way it was. I never noticed it when they first . . . There’s been so many things. [In the Seventh Seal the Prophet explains the last angel was his own theophany]”.

Standing in the Gap, p. 21:82; June 23, 1963: “And now, I didn’t know at the time, that they were taking pictures of that, scientists was [on February 28], as the Angels lowered themselves from heaven to bring the Message. And you remember, I said the one on the right side of the constellation had His—kinda chest back, and His wings . . . You remember me saying that, all of you? And how that I watched him? He was very distinctive from the others. And I didn’t know [until about May 26] they were taking a picture of it, ’cause immediately [after the Cloud of Revelation 10:1-4 manifested on March 8] I hurried east [to the Church in Jeffersonville, Indiana, but probably not before March 10 or 12]. But going back home to Tucson, there it was all through the papers that had been seen almost nationwide or plumb into Mexico, all the western States. And I think the “Courier” over here . . . It was on the Associated Press. How many saw a mysterious cloud in the sky? Let’s see the hands. And now, the “Life” Magazine picked it up. And I have the article here this morning in the “Life” Magazine there, of the show . . . Now, here it is, the same time I was there. See the pyramid or the Cloud? I was standing just below this. And there . . . See the distinctive Angel on the right hand side? See the pointed wing of it? Just exactly what was said. And here’s interview of Mexico and different places from where they took the picture. Now, this scientist here is trying to get all the information about the picture that he can, about the people who has the picture. He’s studying it”.

The Lord Jesus opened the First Seal nine days after this public sign appeared over Flagstaff on February 28. He daily unveiled the revelation of the Seals to His Prophet “in the little room” at Brother and Sister Wood’s Jeffersonville home where he was praying and studying. He delivered the rhema of their logos from March 17 to 24, 1963 in absolute ignorance of the appearance of the Cloud on February 28, photographs or media interest, until May 26. Were news of the Cloud noised abroad at that time, “Life” Magazine would have published it before May 17, or not at all.

In spite of the Judaeo-Catholic church and the truly exceptional imagination of some Brothers, angels are the theophanies of human beings, without wings. Brother Branham was referring to the swept back appearance of the Lord’s beard in the Cloud as it ‘flew’ eastward. In Malachi 4:2 we read, “Unto you who fear My Name will the Sun of righteousness [Jesus Christ] arise with healing [restoration and glorification] in His wings [His beams are likened to the outstretched wings of a bird]; and the righteous will go forth [rejoicing] as calves released from the darkness of the stall to frisking and leaping for joy in spring pastures” (Isaiah 30:26; Jeremiah 30:17; Revelation 1:16). The evening-time Light is restoring and building faith in us for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Joel 2:25; Zechariah 17:7; Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; 24:27-28; Ephesians 1:17-23; Revelation 10:7; 18:1).

The glory of the Lord represented in this Cloud is made up of the theophanies of the seven angels and their converts, including you and every member of Christ’s end-time Bride who was also present in theophany when the Lamb claimed the Book (Revelation 5:8-14). Redemption is over, and since we were predestinated to be reborn of the fullness of the Word, we were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary. This is “that great Cloud of witnesses . . . the general assembly and Church of the Firstborn who are written in heaven” (I Thessalonians 4:13-14; Hebrews 12:1, 22; Jude 14).

Is Your Life worthy of the Gospel? p. 1:6-7, June 30: “I’d say 8:00 o’clock or 9:00 [on March 8, 1963], wouldn’t you think something like that, Brother Fred; maybe 9:00 o’clock, something? I run over on this side quickly to keep the javelinas from seeing me. They’re wild boar, you know, and they’re pretty scary.”

“So I went over the hill this way and started to run up the hill, and I just run along in a little what we call a dog trot; and all of a sudden the whole country just rung out. I never heard such a terrific blast. Just shook and the rocks rolled. And I felt like I must’ve jumped five feet off the ground, looked like. It just scared me. And I thought, “Oh, my . . .” I thought I’d gotten shot, that somebody . . . I had on a black hat. I thought they might’ve thought it was a javelina running up the mountain, somebody had shot me. It went so loud right on me like that. Then all at once something said, “Look up.” There it was. Then He told me, “It’s the opening of those Seven Seals; turn home.” So here I come”.

I expect you now recognize that the pillar of Cloud appeared to the public over Prescott 165 miles nor’-west and Flagstaff 200 miles nor’-nor’-west of Tucson in the evening from around 1840hrs MST on February 28, 1963 to fulfil the requirement of Psalm 19:1. And that the same Cloud appeared a second time to the Prophet and only to him forty miles north east of Tucson between about 0900hrs and 1000hrs MST mid-morning on March 8, 1963 to fulfil his vision of December 22, 1962.

It is the Rising of the Sun, p. 1:8-9; April 18, 1965: “Realizing that our time is limited here, especially for those friends who are listening in by this telephone, I would like to call your attention this morning to a picture that some time ago was taken by the camera of a vision that I had [received on December 22, 1962 and recounted on December 30] here at the Tabernacle [in the sermon, Is This the Sign of the End, Sir?”] of leaving Indiana to [relocate to] Arizona, where I was to meet in the form of a pyramid, seven Angels. Not knowing what would happen, later when I got there, thinking it was the end of my life, that no one could stand the blast . . . (And I’m sure all of you are acquainted with the story). And then in Sabino Canyon one morning like this [at about 8.30am in early January 1963, soon after relocating to Tucson], while in prayer, there had been a sword placed in my hand and said, “This is the Word and the Sword of the Word.”

Later [on March 8, 1963] the Angels appeared as was prophesied [in the vision of December 22, 1962]. And at the same time, [actually without his knowledge on February 28] a great cluster of Light left to where I was standing and moved thirty miles high in the air and around the circle, like the wings of the Angels, and drawed into the skies a shape of a pyramid in the same constellation of Angels that appeared.

It is essential to discern the logos from Brother Branham’s rhema as he frequently conflates the two visitations of the Cloud. Whilst the appearance of the Cloud on February 28 was a public testimony, his assumption from Mount Sunset into the glorious Cloud of God’s Presence on March 8 was seen and experienced by himself alone as on the Day of Atonement Israel’s high priest entered the Presence alone and only he saw the Shekinah in the Holy of Holies.

CloudThe main photograph in Life Magazine was taken over Flagstaff; the small pictures were taken from Prescott, Phoenix, and Winslow, a circumference of roughly 200 miles centered at Prescott. As the Cloud was twenty-six miles high and thirty miles across it would have been overhead wherever one was in that circle. Several months later Brother Branham reminded us that God always signifies major events in the heavens before they take place (Genesis 1:14; Psalm 19:1-5). He also said. “Did you notice before the Seven Seals were revealed, the great mysterious Light showed forth in the heavens up here above Tucson where we were.”

The Shekinah manifest as the Pillar of Cloud on two occasions and at two different locations. The first occasion was on February 28 when it appeared for a public witness seen by thousands and noted by scientists and the media unbeknownst to the Prophet until May 26. The second occasion was over Sunset Mountain when Christ opened the Seven Seals “(Is Your Life worthy of the Gospel,” p. 3:13) when Brother Branham was physically caught up into the “great a Cloud of witnesses,” showing the Church Ages and Christ’s mediation for ignorance were fulfilled. The “constellation” or alignment of the angels’ Messages of PART-Word and PART-Spirit signify “that which is perfect [or complete]” and we must “look away [from the messengers] to Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith” (I Corinthians 13:10; I Thessalonians 4:14; Hebrews 12:1-2; Revelation 4:1-8; 6:1; 18:4). His assumption confirmed his “new commission” and he was told to return to Jeffersonville where the Lord would reveal the mystery of the voices of the Seven Thunders, which is the revelation of the unwritten Seventh Seal expounding the mystery of the six written Seals. Underestimating the Prophet’s hunting prowess I reckoned this had occurred on March 9, 1963, however I later learned that his eldest daughter, our late Sister Rebekah Smith, had said that the correct date was March 8. No one but the Prophet himself saw this manifestation of the Shekinah, which he later ‘recognized’ from photographs of its visible public manifestation taken eight days previously.

Revelation 6:1, “And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the Seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come”.

believethesign.com does not believe, but questions: “Is William Branham Credible? . . . The Scientific Explanation is: On February 28, 1963, a thrust assisted Thor rocket was launched from pad 75-3-5 at Vandenberg Air Force base in California carrying a Keyhole 4 military surveillance satellite. The rocket started to veer off course and was intentionally destroyed at an altitude of 146,000 feet at 1:52pm . . .”

Be this as it may it is irrelevant because the “blast” or single “thunder” of Revelation 6:1 and the Cloud into which Brother Branham was caught up according to the vision and dreams disclosed to the Church in December 1962 manifest not on February 28, 1963 but on March 8, unseen by anyone but God’s Prophet.

On January 26, 1963, before the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International Convention in Phoenix the Lord spoke through his prophet expressing His complete displeasure with them and their system, “like so many others, they were now just another organization” (Revelation 3:17-20). After stating the Lord’s anger, he was whirled around by the Holy Spirit in two circles, and as he left the platform he cried with a loud voice, “Come out of her My people”!

Within moments the international directors were summoned to a hastily arranged executive session. There nineteen men passed a motion stating that “No longer would William Branham be invited as a speaker to FGBMFI functions.” The motion passed seventeen to two. Following the passing of the motion, Carl Williams and Clay Sonmore (both executive vice-presidents of the FGBMFI) tendered their resignations if this motion was left to stand and remain on record. In deference to them as persons whose resignations might make waves, the motion was rescinded and removed from the record.

Even though most of these men re-voted to remove the motion from the record, they remained convinced that the ministry of this Prophet should be curtailed and effectively side-lined. From that day they despised the Word of the Lord. They murmured against the Prophet that God sent to the church of Laodicea. On February 28 the Lord Jesus Christ appeared in the heavens wigged as a judge looking down upon Phoenix, and the Pentecostal church along with the Seven Church Ages ended on March 8. William Branham was vindicated (Investments), like Micaiah in the days of the 400 prophets of Jezebel (I Kings 22).

Hebrews 10:30-31, “We know Him who said, Vengeance belongs to Me, I will repay, and also, The Lord will judge His people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God”.

Pillar of Fire above Brother BranhamAfter preaching Doors in a Doorin Tucson on February 23 Brother Branham received a three-page telegram from Mr. Ted Kipperman, a Jew in partnership with a Catholic named Ayers who was married to a Jewess. These photographers were engaged by the Baptist critic Rev. Dr. Best to take his photograph threatening to skin Brother Bosworth in the auditorium of the Rice Hotel in Houston on January 24, 1950. Six photographs of Dr. Best waving his fist at Brother Bosworth were blank. God would not allow the photographers to dishonour his aged servant. The seventh photograph portrayed Brother Branham overshadowed by the Shekinah. The telegraph was a deep apology by the Jewish photographer and an appeal to Brother Branham to intercede for his sister’s son who was to be executed. Brother Branham postponed his hunting trip and flew to Houston where he entreated the governor in behalf of the boy and his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment.

Then on March 4, Brother Branham preached The Absoluteat a prayer meeting convened by the prison chaplain, his long time friend Raymond Hoekstra and immediately after the service he and Brother Norman drove 1,100 miles back to Tucson for the remainder of the Javelina pig hunting season which ran from March 1-10. The hunting party pitched camp on March 6 and Brother Branham shot his javelina the following day, March 7, and was picking a goathead from his trouser leg as shown in the vision when the “blast” went off on March 8.

“The Road to Sunset,” an article published in the June 1992 issue of ONLY BELIEVE magazine discusses the Cloud photographed on February 28, 1963 and details the hunting trip in March; the “blast,” his union in the cloud of angels, and his new commission. nl955.htm

Word: the Logos and the Rhema

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 954

“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 anticipate 2017 will prove a supernaturally seminal year for all those gathered on the bosom of the River.

I hear so many people say, “Brother, are you in the Message?” And they all have different ideas of what the ‘Message’ is. It’s not whether you’re in the Message, or the Message is in you—that isn’t the point. The question is, “Are you in Christ?”

If you’re in Christ you have the baptism of the Holy Ghost; you’ve heard His Logos, His understanding of the Message and your hope of glory. Do you see the difference? Many believe and can quote the Message page and paragraph, but only the elect will hear His voice, receive the Holy Ghost and not be confused.

Further to the feature articles in our two previous Newsletters—“What the Tapes Say,” and The Ten Virgins”—we reinforce their thrust with today’s main article, “Word: The Logos and the Rhema” by Brother Alfred Raa Olson (1927 – 2002), a minister, author and disciple of God’s Prophet, William Branham. Please take your time to read this carefully so you will be sure to distinguish the “letter only” of God’s unchanging Word from the mind of the “Spirit”.

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

Questioning Christian (sic) participation in Aggressive Warfare

Jesus Messiah

December 21, 2016 — 102 years ago this Christmas Eve something happened in the early months of the “War to End All Wars” that put a tiny little blip of hope in the historical timeline of the organized mass slaughter that is war. The event was regarded by the professional military officer class to be so profound and so important (and so disturbing) that strategies were immediately put in place that would ensure such an event could never happen again . . .
British, Scottish, French, Belgian, Australian, New Zealand, Canadian, German, Austrian, Hungarian, Serbian and Russian clergymen from church pulpits in those Christian nations were doing their part in fomenting a decidedly un-Christ-like patriotic fervour that would result in a [genuine] holocaust that destroyed four empires [as planned], killed upwards of 20 million soldiers and civilians, physically wounded hundreds of millions more and caused the psychological and spiritual decimation of an entire generation of young men whose spiritual care was supposed to be the responsibility of those clergymen.

“. . . and the ones who call the shots won’t be among the dead and lame; and on each end of the rifle we’re the same”  — John McCutcheon.

Christianity, it should be remembered, began as a highly ethical pacifist religion based on the teachings and actions of the nonviolent Jesus of Nazareth (and his pacifist apostles and followers). Christianity survived and thrived despite persecutions until it became the largest religion in the Roman Empire by the time Constantine the Great became emperor and usurped the religion into becoming OK with homicidal violence. Since then, the nations that profess Christianity as their state religion have never allowed the mainline churches to truly exercise the radical peacemaking of the original form of Christianity as Jesus had taught.

So, contrary to the ethical teachings of Jesus, most modern Christian churches have not been active resisters to its particular nation’s imperial aspirations, its nation’s aggressive wars, its nation’s war-makers or its nation’s war profiteers. Instead, the church has, by and large, become a bloody instrument of the satanic in support of whatever sociopathic warmongers and sociopathic corporations are in power . . .

Comment: What the author and the world call “the Church” Jesus calls “the synagogue of Satan” (Revelation 2:9; 3:9). The Judaeo-Roman synagogue will soon accede to the proposition Israel’s Messiah refused, and the synagogue nailed Him to the Cross (Matthew 4:8-10).


Liberation of Aleppo: Regional Turning Point. Setback for US-Led Aggression

President Al Assad

December 21, 2016 — In late 2016, at the cost of many young lives, Syrian forces took back the eastern part of the city of Aleppo, occupied by NATO and Saudi backed terrorists for more than four years . . . the most serious setback for the 15-year long Washington-led aggression on the entire region. An effective recolonisation of the region has stretched from Afghanistan to Libya, under a range of false pretexts. Invasions and proxy wars have been backed by economic sanctions and wild propaganda. But this great war of aggression—called the creation of ‘New Middle East’ by former US President George W. Bush—has hit a rock in Syria. The massive proxy armies bought and equipped by Washington and its regional allies the Saudis, Turkey, Qatar and Israel, have been beaten back by a powerful regional alliance which supports the Syrian nation.

The endgame in Aleppo involves a handful of foreign agents—US, Saudi, Israeli and others . . . The US in particular is keen to secure their release, because their presence is further evidence of the foreign command of what was claimed to be a ‘civil war’ . . . Resettlement and reconstruction is already underway, and army reserves have been called up to defend the city . . . As Syrian forces smashed the al Qaeda lines, the trapped civilians streamed out. They published video of long lines of people leaving east Aleppo and finding relief, food and shelter with the Syrian Arab Army. Tired and relieved, they told their stories to anyone who cared to listen. Russia and Iran gave many tonnes of food, clothing, blanket, and shelter aid. By contrast, western countries generally gave nothing and the terror groups rejected all aid from the Syrian alliance… Full story: globalresearch.ca

Comment: Since the late nineteenth century we have seen the slow unfolding of a reciprocal clandestine covenant typed in Genesis 32-33, noted by Isaiah, revealed to Daniel in Judah’s sixty-eighth year of captivity, elaborated by Jesus Messiah in Revelation 13, 17-19 and expounded by William Branham (the Prophet of Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 1:1, 3:14; 10:7, etc,). We are seeing the restoration of the Roman Empire of the Middle East and North Africa in exchange for the Land of the Covenant, West Asia (greater Israel), and Russia as surety for refinancing the world systems enabling one world government.

“With the world church system under her Rome will be controlling, and this image (church system) will be obedient to Rome because Rome controls the gold of the world. Thus all the people have to belong to the world church system or be at the mercy of the elements for they cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast in the hand or head. This mark in the head means that they will have to take the doctrine of the world church system which is trinitarianism, etc., and the mark in the hand which means to do the will of the world church. With this great power the church systems will persecute the true Bride. This image will try to keep the Bride from preaching and teaching, etc. Her ministers will be forbidden to give comfort and truth to the people who need it. But before the antichrist (in person) takes over this complete world system of churches the true church will be taken away from this world to be with the Lord for the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 377).


Syria’s Victory at Aleppo: Turning Point in Struggle against Neo-Colonialism

December 21, 2016 — Today the Russian Ambassador in Turkey was slaughtered by a terrorist at an art gallery in Ankara . . . the assassin was “unlikely to have acted alone” . . . The atmosphere of rabid Russophobia prevailing, even at the United Nations, created a climate so conducive to violence that it would not be an exaggeration to assert that the pervasive Russophobia actually enabled the murder. The assassin shouted: “Don’t forget Aleppo! Don’t forget Syria!”

On December 5, 2016, as a result of the Russian-Chinese veto, the UN Security Council failed to give authorization to inflict on Syria the pulverizing slaughter that the Security Council had authorized against Iraq (Resolution 678) and Libya (Resolution 1973). The former colonial powers, Britain, France, and currently the US, then sought a UN General Assembly Resolution to vilify the Syrian government’s resistance to becoming a servile colony of the former colonial dictators of the Middle East oil spigot . . . it carries no legal power of enforcement, although it serves propaganda purposes of the vengeful and hypocritical former dictators of the Middle East.

Although during the December 9, 2016 General Assembly’s adoption of L.39 the US representative stated that “every hospital in Eastern Aleppo had been attacked,” no mention was made of the “moderate rebels'” lethal attack on a Russian hospital in Aleppo, which murdered Russian medical personnel and injured numerous Russian staff. The “moderate rebel” murderers had, obviously been provided with the coordinates of the hospital, which facilitated the direct strike. Are Russian lives of no value? No mention was made of the coalition’s (America, British, Australian) repeated airstrikes on September 19, 2016, which murdered at least 60 Syrian soldiers and disrupted the ceasefire brokered by the US and Russia . . .

Comment: Ten Massive Fake News Stories Western Media has been feeding you on Aleppo.


‘Newspeak’ and Duplicity of Mainstream Journalism

December 22, 2016 — Mainstream media journalism, has descended into truly toxic levels of printed and broadcast disinformation. One can now virtually count on the fact that what is being said on any topic of political significance, will be a carefully scripted trotting-out of government and corporate propaganda . . . what George Orwell called ‘Newspeak’ . . . witnessing one event and describing it as quite another event . . .

It must be obvious to most of us by now that Russia, via Putin, is being held responsible for pretty much everything which is no longer working well for [Judaeo-]Western engineered neoliberal/neocon globalism. In fact, the stream of accusations against Putin’s Russia have descended into . . . farce . . . not backed by any factual evidence . . .

BBC reports that returning pro Assad Syrian army troops are raping and murdering the civilian population . . . thousands are trying to flee the massacre going on night and day at the hands of Assad’s army, supported by Russia and Iran . . . based on fictitious information concocted and spread about by paid-off insiders, hired to tell lies at ten a minute . . . to protect the geopolitical interests of the West. As if to officially rubber stamp this fact, the US Senate recently introduced a bill attempting to ban any story line which might contradict such ‘official’ version of events . . . Especially those surrounding the defeat of ISIS and the liberation of Aleppo which had been occupied—and virtually starved out—by ISIS terrorists for the past four years.

Attempts to silence truth are a direct attack on free speech . . . endemic in Westminster and Washington . . . The propaganda machine works best when nobody looks the reality in the eye. They are simply puppets, singing the hymns that NATO, the EU and USA wants the world to hear . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Comment: The NATO campaign against freedom of expression. NATO first attempted to silence . . . the truth about the attacks of 11 September 2001 . . . those who contested the official version of the ‘Arab Springs’ and the war against Syria . . . the coup d’état in Ukraine. Now NATO is behind the accusations by a pseudo-NGO that the people who campaigned for Donald Trump are Russian agents.

Egyptian Minister for Home Affairs confirmed five men had been arrested taking photos to be posted on Facebook . . . two children, covered in blood, were playing the role of the children of Aleppo who had, so it was claimed, been injured by Russian bombings . . . Full story: voltairenet.org

Sensible communication—according to President Trump

General Flynn is getting ready to rock the world of US intelligence and override all post 9/11 reforms. This would put an end to the obsession with secret prisons and targeted assassinations and mark a return to the true nature of intelligence: making sense of and anticipating developments around the world. General Flynn’s Proposals to Reform Intelligence


Word: The Logos and the Rhema

Based on the book by Alfred Raa
Olson

“I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear, but now mine eye seeth thee” (Job 42:5).

In I Corinthians 1:21 the Bible teaches “it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.” With the vocabulary of our speech we go forth proclaiming the Good News—“Jesus Christ is Lord and Saviour.” Those who have ears to hear what the Spirit has to say, and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, shall be saved.

William BranhamThe ministry of William Branham has gone forth in these closing hours of time just before Jesus returns for the glorious millennium: this ministry was promised by our Lord, to “finish the mystery of God” and “restore all things” for the Rapture of His Church. Jesus testified the vast majority of people always rejected God’s prophets, or misinterpreted their Message. Those associated with the Message Brother Branham brought are no exception. They reiterate his words by quoting the “letter” of the Spoken Word books, as those in previous times quoted the letter of prophets before him, without understanding what the Spirit was saying through them. When matters of doctrine arise, instead of searching the Scriptures, as the Bible instructs (II Timothy 3:16), people typically respond “I’m going to stay with what the prophet said!” Few perceive the God he preached. Had they heard what he said, their hearts would have been restored to the faith of the Pentecostal fathers (Malachi 4:5-6), which is the Gospel of Jesus Christ laid out by the apostle Paul (I Corinthians 3:10-11), himself a prophet. And they would diligently search the Word to “prove all things . . .” (I Thessalonians 5:21).

Many believers of this last day Message, like those who claimed to follow Moses, Jeremiah, Daniel, Paul, Luther, or Wesley, are preoccupied with the words and speech of William Branham, in their zeal to be ‘in the Message.’ That they have lost sight of the foundation of our faith in the Scriptures, “which are able to make thee WISE unto salvation” (II Timothy 3:15). The baptism of the Holy Ghost, Christ dwelling in you in the Form of the Holy Spirit, is the Seal of God’s promise He will return for you.

The evidence that you have received the Holy Spirit is “WISDOM” in the Word God promised for YOUR day, and seeing it manifesting in your life. For if the Spirit of Jesus Christ dwells within you, it will quicken your mortal body to every Word in God’s Bible by the Message for your day, as it did in the
saints of previous Ages. For if Christ does dwell within you, you cannot deny what He wrote in His Gospel, the Scriptures. But these preachers have not had their hearts back to the truth in the Gospel of Christ. Instead, they repeat only words and speeches, not perceiving the Message of Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever.

William Branham said, “Like the Dutchman, take me for what I mean, not for what I say; one word contrary to the Bible is the kingdom of Satan.” If your heart has been turned back to the truth of the Word, you will not just repeat his sayings, but compare them from Genesis to Revelation to discern consistent ‘MEANING,’ lest you “darken counsel by words without knowledge” (Job 38:2).

* * *

Brother Branham taught God wrote three Bibles we know as “the Word.”

The Gospel was first declared in the stars, a witness to the ancient world of our Lord’s first Coming, the purpose for His suffering and to His Coming again. According to ancient astrologers, the Zodiac began with Virgo, the Virgin, and ended with Leo, the Lion. Our Lord Jesus Christ came born of a virgin and will return as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. This is but one of many examples which prove “the heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament sheweth His handywork”  (Psalm 19:1).

ZodiacWhen people meet me in Chicago, I often take them to visit the planetarium. Visitors to the planetarium sit in a circular auditorium in soft, cushioned chairs, which lay back so you can look up at the ceiling. The lights are turned off, and a machine in the center of the room projects images onto the ceiling, each representing a star or planet. A narrator explains what the sky looks like tonight. He can also show us how the heavens looked two thousand years ago, about the time that Christ was born. He can show you where each star will be tomorrow night, or ten years from now, or even a hundred years from now. Those who study the stars even know what the heavens will look a thousand years from now. God’s unchanging Word the Holy Bible says the righteous shall shine as the stars. They declare God’s predestination, nothing is hidden from Him. He knows the path our lives will take, for He’s omniscient, knowing the very thoughts going through our minds, even the hairs on our head are numbered. God knows all of our tomorrows. By foreknowledge He knew I would be saying these things and chose me in Christ Jesus, writing my name in the Book of Life before time began (Revelation 17:8).

All nature is ruled by the heavenly bodies and testifies to the accuracy of God’s Word. Throughout the Scriptures, situations in nature were used to illustrate God’s ways. Jesus spoke of His impending death, saying, “Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit” (John 12:24).

Jeremiah compared the man who trusts in the Lord to a tree: “Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit” (Jeremiah 17:7-8).

Even the seasons give testimony: spring brings forth life; summer is youth; fall older age; and winter is death. But after winter, comes spring—the resurrection. Birth, life, death, resurrection—all nature is governed by the heavens.

Sphinx and Great PyramidThe second Bible was built of stone by Enoch as a witness before the Flood. The Great Pyramid sits geographically in the center of the earth so the sun never casts a shadow around it and types Christ and His Bride. Notice how it is broad at the base and constantly narrows as it nears completion, like the elect Church which becomes increasingly in the minority as it nears the Capstone. The great pyramid and its unplaced capstone with the all-seeing eye of God is ‘The Great Seal’ of the United States and has never been used for sealing, and rarely for any other purpose, aside from its reproduction on the US one dollar bill. The pyramid is represented by thirteen rows of masonry, (thirteen is the number of woman), and above this, is the capstone surrounded by the Shekinah. The capstone has always been a mystery, like the “Seven Thunders” of Revelation 10, nothing has ever been revealed, and without it, the pyramid could not be finished. It speaks of another Stone, rejected, elect and precious—the Seven Sealed revelation of Jesus Christ—without which the Church cannot be made complete.

For the instruction of those who are wise, the Great Pyramid is a prophecy that the same Light which shone in the East, would be restored in the West, to Seal and complete that which He has begun: He is Alpha and Omega. Latin mottos above the Great Seal announce: “He has Favoured Our Undertakings” and under it, “A New Order of the Ages.”

God wrote His third Bible on paper for the educational age and neither one contradicts the other. The Scriptures are often referred to as “the Word.” We use various terms in referring to the Word. For example, we speak of the ‘written Word;’ the ‘revealed Word,’ the ‘living Word;’ and the ‘restoration of the Word.’ To some, this last reference to God’s Word seems inappropriate, because restoration means, to “return to an original state of being,” as one might reconstruct an historic building that was in decay. We know the Word of God is “the same yesterday, today, and forever;” that it can never change or pass away, but must manifest what was spoken in its designated season and time. Therefore it may be said, there can be no restoration of the Word, rather a restoration of understanding or faith in the Word. Instead of speaking about a restoration of the Word, we shall consider restoring the elect Church, back to the Word. The difference is one of semantics. Jesus referring to Malachi 4, said: “Elijah truly shall first come and restore all things” (Matthew 11:17). Peter said Jesus could not return the second time, “until the restoration of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began,” so it is the Word which is to be restored (Acts 3:21). Not that the Word has failed, or that another gospel will be proclaimed. Jesus said: “Heaven and earth shall pass away [or change], but My words shall not pass away [i.e. change].” Man failed and changed, not God the Word. God miraculously preserved His Word intact through years of persecution. It is not the “letter,” but the SENSE of the Word, or “faith,” which was lost and required restoration.

The New Testament, as you know, was originally written in Greek. Now I don’t know much Greek but I know a man who teaches Greek at a seminary near Chicago. Perhaps he thinks I’m a fanatic with my questions about the Greek New Testament, but he’s always willing to see me and explain. I appreciate that. The Greek language is far more precise than English, with more words giving finer distinctions in meaning. Take for example, the word “love.” Two Greek words: ‘Agape’ and ‘Phileo’ are both translated “love,” however they have entirely different meanings. The Greek ‘parousia’ is a present participle meaning ‘arrival and subsequent presence’ is translated “come,” as in the Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; ‘erchomai,’ also means to come, go, or enter but is used only in the present and imperfect tenses. Debate and confusion often arise where two different Greek words are translated by one English word.

Looking up “word” in our concordance, two Greek words: ‘Logos’ and ‘Rhema,’ are translated “word.” Rhema means word or words as utterance or speech. Let me illustrate from Scripture: “every idle Rhema [word or utterance] that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment” (Matthew 12:36). Brought before Pilate to answer accusations: “Jesus answered him to never a Rhema [word or utterance]; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly”  (Matthew 27:14). In II Corinthians 12:4, Paul describes “How he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable Rhema, [words or utterance], which is not lawful for a man to utter.” John 8:20: “These Rhema [words or utterance], spake Jesus in the treasury as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on Him for His hour was not yet come.”

Logos is an expression of thought: a concept, an idea, the reasoning behind the Rhema. Galatians 5:14 says: “For all the Law is fulfilled in one Logos [concept, thought], even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” In John 5:24 Jesus says, “Verily, verily I say unto you, He that heareth My Logos, [concept or thought], and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto Life.” And in John 8:43, “Why do ye not understand My speech? Even because ye cannot hear My Logos [concept or thought].”

This next example, found in the tenth chapter of Acts, is probably one of my favourites. There was a certain devout man in Caesarea called Cornelius, who feared God, but did not know the way of salvation. He gave alms to the poor and did good things but he was not born again, and he was a Gentile. An angel appeared to him one day and told him to send his servants to Joppa to find one Simon Peter and bring him back. So Cornelius sent his servants to Joppa. In the meantime Peter had seen a vision; a sheet came down from heaven “wherein were all manner of four footed beasts of the earth . . . And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat. But Peter said, Not so Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean: And the voice spoke unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call thou not common” (Acts 10:12-15). Gentiles, you see, were considered to be unclean. As soon as the vision was over, there came a knock on the door, and it was the servants of Cornelius. They took Peter back to where Cornelius had gathered his whole household: his mother, father, sisters, brothers, slaves and servants, etc., to hear what Peter had to say.

Peter began to preach Christ unto them. And “While Peter yet spake these Rhema, [words or utterance], the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the Logos [concept or thought].” I thought they ALL got the Holy Ghost. But it doesn’t say that. They all heard his speech, his Rhema, the spoken words, but only those who caught the Logos, the concept or idea behind what he had said, received the Holy Ghost. Do you see the difference?

We can hear a man preach, listen to his tapes, and read books. We can all hear speech or read words, as Cornelius’ household listened to Peter. But we’ve got to catch the Logos, or thought behind what is spoken or written. Many believers today are saying, “we’ll say just what the prophet said, or quote the Scriptures.” Beware! You can quote a prophet, the Bible, or any other book word-for-word, and still not say what the speaker or author has said. Let me quote a Scripture: When Jesus was brought before Pilate, the high priests wanted to find some reason for putting Him to death and needed an accusation to bring against Him, but could find no witnesses. At last, there came two false witnesses. One said, “This fellow said, ‘I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days'” (Matthew 26:61). The man had heard Jesus’ speech, but did not catch the thought behind what Jesus had said. He wasn’t talking about the Temple in Jerusalem: Jesus was talking about His own body—“Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up” (John 2:19). This witness had heard Jesus Rhema but had not heard the Logos. Do you see the difference?

Nicodemus came to Jesus by night, wanting to know the ways of the Lord. He was a Pharisee, yet he knew that Jesus was a man sent from God. Jesus told him, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3). Nicodemus did not understand: “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?” Jesus answered, “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit” (John 3:4-6). Nicodemus heard the Rhema, the words Jesus spoke. But he didn’t catch the thought or Logos behind what He had said. [Oh, I hope you’re getting the Logos behind what I’m trying to share with you]. The Bible says, “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith” (Revelation 2:7). “. . . for the letter [Rhema or Gramma] killeth, but the Spirit giveth Life” (II Corinthians 3:6). The Spirit has to reveal to you the thought or concept behind what is being said.

I went to college for a few years. Before I had graduated, however, I met my wife and we were married: I had to quit school and find a job to support us. I remember an incident in advanced math while I was still in college. One day the instructor wrote some equations on the blackboard—they were, I think, algebraic equations. Well, he explained the first one, and when he had finished, he turned around. There we were scratching our heads with blank expressions. He looked at us and said, “You didn’t get it. Did you? You haven’t been doing your homework, have you? I’ll explain it again.” So he went through the equation again and explained each portion of it. When he had finished, he turned around to find us still scratching our heads with blank looks on our faces. “You still didn’t get it did you?” And he explained it one more time part-by-part. Suddenly, I caught the idea behind what he was saying: the thought or concept behind the equation. Now that’s what we Christians need to do—make sure we have the thought behind what is being preached or written, as regards the things of the Lord.

Sometimes, I go to France to preach. Now I don’t know French, and one day I was trying to talk with a Frenchman, and he spoke very little English. I was trying to explain something and the more I tried to make him understand what I was saying, the more confused he became. I was trying hand signals, anything I could think of to make him understand. After quite some time, when I was about to give up, his face suddenly changed; it was almost as if a light had come on: he caught my Logos—the thought behind what I had been saying.

Suppose each of us was a missionary preaching to sinners in different parts of the globe. In preaching to the unconverted church-goer, the best place to start bringing the plan of salvation is Acts 2:38. We have to show them who the Lord Jesus Christ is, and their need to repent of their sins and be baptized in the NAME of the Lord Jesus Christ, that they might receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost. Now, one of us might go to Germany and be speaking in German. He may be using an illustration of some type to emphasise their need to repent, accept Jesus Christ as Saviour and be baptized in His NAME. Another on a Pacific island would employ different words and illustrations, and a language understood by those people. Another might serve in a third country and use different words, illustrations, and Scriptures. No matter how we went about it, each is presenting the concept in Acts 2:21-38. Like chicken: you can boil it, you can fry it, you can stew it, or you can grill it, no matter how you cook it, it’s still chicken! The situation is much the same with us Christians as we learn the things of God. Whether we hear a preacher, listen to tapes or read Brother Branham’s sermons, we must get the thought behind what is spoken or written. And we can’t “say what the prophet said,” unless we have the Logos behind what he was saying. Amen!

Theologians today are unsure what language Jesus actually spoke. For the moment let’s presume He spoke Galilean, the language of the common people. After His death and resurrection, the apostles wrote what He said, as well as things that happened, and they wrote it in Greek. Twelve or fourteen hundred years later, it was translated into English. Not long ago, I was in Bangladesh preaching in English with an interpreter. Just imagine—from Galilean to Greek, from Greek to English, then into Bengali. It’s a wonder anyone knows what original the story was. You can tell someone a story and let them pass it on. By the time it returns, it’s often a different story altogether. But “God watches over His Word:” He watches over the Logos. Those in Bangladesh, who were predestinated, caught the same thought and as came forth when Jesus preached it two thousand years ago. Do you see that?

Years ago people used to debate the issue of water baptism. “Should we be baptized in the Name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost?” some asked. “No, we should be baptized in the NAME of the Lord Jesus Christ!” others said. They argued back and forth until they got the thought behind it—the Logos. “Lord Jesus Christ” IS the NAME of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Without the Logos there was confusion.

Revelation 22:18-19 says we cannot add or take away one Word from Scripture—the “word” here is Logos. You cannot add a single thought, because the Bible is the complete revelation of Jesus Christ. You can add a Rhema or utterance: there are many words written in italics to indicate they are not in the original, and have been added to make grammatical sense. Words are sometimes added because there’s no English equivalent. The Bible is God’s thoughts, or Logos, expressed in writing (Rhema); and although the various translations use different words we cannot add one Logos. Unless the Holy Ghost reveals it personally, we can never get the Logos in the first place.

The Bible says, “All should be taught of God.” Now you’re either taught of God, or you’re not taught at all. You can go to college or Bible school to learn many different things, but you cannot go to school to learn God. You either learn from Him or you don’t know Him at all. I’d like to quote here from I Corinthians 2:9-16: “As is written, eye hath no seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.”

In other words, we don’t know what another person is thinking. He can say one thing and think another. Only the spirit within the person knows what he is thinking. Likewise, no man can know what God thinks, but the Spirit of God. When the Spirit of God indwells you as the Holy Ghost, you have the mind of Christ, and you understand His thoughts.

I John 2:20, 27: “But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.” The unction is the Holy Ghost. “But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him.” Though a man preaches the Gospel, the Holy Ghost must take what was said and reveal the thought behind it. Do you see that? The revealed Word is the Logos, the concept made known unto you. Praise the Lord! That puts all preachers on the same level. God is neither helped nor hindered by our vocabulary, or eloquent speech. Paul said, “I came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.” Regardless of our words, God takes what is said, and reveals the thought behind them by His Spirit. Otherwise we could never hear it. We have got to get the Logos of God. We can receive nothing unless it is given from Above.

Our Lord Jesus prayed in John 17:21, “that they all may be one; as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be one in Us; that the world may believe that Thou hast sent me.” On the day of Pentecost that prayer was answered! God sent the Holy Ghost, Which is Himself, “and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost” (Acts 2:4), making the oneness between God and man! Jesus Christ comes into the believer, by the baptism of the Holy Ghost, doing the same works as when He was yet with them.

Jesus said, “My sheep hear my Voice.” Because those listening all heard His Rhema did not mean they were “His sheep.” One day, Jesus said to His disciples, “Who do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist; some, Elias; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.” They all had different ideas who Jesus was. Then He said to them, “But who do YOU say that I am? Simon Peter answered, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. Jesus replied, Blessed art thou Simon bar-Jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 16:13-17). No matter how well a man can preach, or express himself, Christ is building His Church on the rock of God revealing the Logos personally to you. Amen! We all hear different concepts and different ideas, but those who hear the Logos from God, hear the same thing. Amen! Paul asked, “Is Christ divided?” The Corinthians knew more than many in this day: He is NOT divided. By one Spirit are we all baptized into one Body. And if we are baptized into the Body and His Spirit dwells in us, we will hear His voice and be hearers and doers of His Word (James 1:22). Everyone with the Holy Ghost will hear [or understand] the same thing.

After Paul was converted on the Damascus Road, he didn’t go to Jerusalem to confer with men, but spent three years in the desert where God could reveal His Word or Logos without human influence. When Paul met with the apostles in Jerusalem, they all had the same revelation. Those with ears to hear believe alike by the same Logos; there is one God, and everyone who has the Holy Ghost receives the same Logos or concept.

I am hearing among Christians today, a variety of “requirements” to be in the rapture. People say, “Brother Olson, we’re trying to make the rapture. And I say, “Brother, the rapture cannot take place without me, because I’m sealed unto it.”

God’s one requirement to be in the rapture is that we are sealed with Holy Ghost. If we are sealed by the Holy Ghost, we are sealed unto the day of redemption. Only the elect can be born again. When we’re sealed we’re a finished work and He has to take you. Once we’ve been sealed, we obey His Word: not so we might be accepted—we are already accepted and we want to please Him. Law says if you do certain things, you will be accepted; Grace says because we are accepted, we desire to do the things which please Him.

Now you may disagree, but it seems many of these ‘requirements’ for making the rapture were without revelation—Rhema without Logos. The “rapture” is a revelation—the threefold PROCESS Paul described in I Thessalonians 4:16 bringing you into oneness or agreement with God by putting on the mind of Christ. It commenced in 1963 with the revelation of the Seven Seals—the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication—bringing Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form. “Since that which is Perfect [or complete, Christ the fullness of the Word] has come that which was in PART-Word [denominational creed and guesswork and Christ’s mediation for ignorance] has been done away” (I Corinthians 13:10). The rapture is the separation described in Luke 17:22-36, II Thessalonians 2:1 and Revelation 18:4 calling us out of the world “into the unity of the faith” (Ephesians 4:13), for “the manifestation of the Sons of God” (Romans 8:19) and the translation (I Corinthians 15:50-55).

Faith is the separator—a clear understanding of the Word—knowing the Logos rather than learning the Rhema. The rapture is the second Coming of the Lord, we would all agree on that. The Greek word for “Coming” is ‘parousia,’ which refers to ‘the arrival and subsequent Presence’ of the Word as the Son of Man, NOT to His millennial Coming as Son of David. The second Coming is “as a thief in the night,” so it is a mystery. It is also ‘universal,’ and clearly cannot be His second physical return when He returns as Son of David WITH the saints of all Ages for a thousand years of peace.

According to the Rhema, the ‘parousia’ or second Coming is the Logos of the FULNESS of the Word—Christ, incarnating His Bride by the baptism with the Holy Ghost, or new birth. Separating His people from the churches through faith in the FULNESS of the Word. Luke 17:34-37, “there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left: Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other one left. And the Disciples said unto Him, WHERE TO LORD? And Jesus said unto them. Wheresoever the Body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.” He did NOT say, “To the Wedding Supper,” did He? This is the rapture, NOT the translation, spiritually catching up the LIVING Bride in the revelation of the FULNESS of the Word, which brings Her into Oneness with the Word under preeminence for the manifestation of the sons of God.

The baptism of the Holy Ghost or new birth is Oneness with the Word: it is a revelation. The rapture is a revelation. If we are going to receive glorified bodies at the end of the Gentile dispensation, we’ve got to have ‘rapturing faith.’ Rapturing faith does not mean technically understanding how God manifests the saints in glorified flesh. Rapturing faith is simply a clear understanding in the Logos, not Rhema, of the end-time Message of Revelation 10:1-7 and Malachi 4:5-6. What is this? It is the faith of the apostolic fathers restored in this last day, plus the mystery of the Seven Church Ages and the Seals. This placed the Church in history and identified the true and false churches—the Church of God, and the churches of Satan. It shows what part of the Word is fulfilled already and therefore what part God is fulfilling in His elect today. ‘Rapturing faith,’ is oneness with the FULNESS of the Word. The revelation of the Seven Seals “finished the mystery of God” making our oneness with God possible without a mediator for ignorance.

People say, “You’ve got to have the resurrection power in you.” Or “You’ve got to have perfect love. You’ve got to have the love of God, Agape love, in you.” If the Logos of the Word God is fulfilling today, YOUR part of the Living Body Word of God is in you, His resurrection power is in you now. Paul spoke of it in Ephesians 1:3-17-20. ‘Agape,’ the love of God, is the new birth. The “love of God” is Jesus Christ, “the hope of glory” who enters into you by the spiritual marriage union of the Bride and Christ. What the Holy Spirit has joined together: “neither death, nor life, nor angels, or principalities, or powers, nor things present, or things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate you from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”.

Faith is a revelation. If you have a clear revelation of the present Truth and can see it coming to pass in your life that is the evidence of the new birth. The love of God is in you, and you are already in the rapture. You don’t have to prove it to anyone: you can’t, because they’d have to receive the Logos from God before they could understand. If the same Spirit which raised up Jesus Christ from the dead is dwelling in you, it will quicken your mortal body to every Word, and the Life of Christ will be on display.

If you’re truly born again, there is not one thing you need do to be in the rapture, or Jesus Christ died in vain. Don’t be provoked by carnal folk who challenge you to prove you have ‘Agape’ by fleshly comparison with the charitable works of the world church system. If after the first and second admonition they cannot receive the faith, just walk away from them, “if our gospel is hid, it is hid to them that are lost” (II Corinthians 4:3).

Adolph Hitler once said, “If you repeat something often enough, people will believe it.” He was right. The best way to paralyse faith is to let men persuade you you’ve got to get this, do that, or you’ll never make it. The old Devil will always tell you what you lack, but he’ll never tell you how to get it. “Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” Men who imply you don’t have it without proving their point in God’s Word are sowing doubt.

Preaching in the negative destroys faith. Brother Branham talked about the time when the angel appeared to him and said, “If you can get the people to believe, nothing will stand in the way of your prayers.” If ever you were in his meetings, you know he would testify to what the Lord has done. He would generate faith. The people saw and heard God do great and wonderful works. POSITIVE! They would think, “He’s no respecter of persons, what he has for done others, surely He will do for me.” He would then challenge their faith by saying, “I challenge you. If the Lord will reveal what your problem is, will you believe He will grant you the desire of your heart?” What can preachers do but challenge people to have faith in God? Christ is NOT divided. There might be differences of opinion; there might be groups which argue; there might be brethren who say, “We believe one way, and he believes another.” But Christ is NOT divided. The elected will eventually believe the same thing, for His sheep hear His Logos.

I recall hearing a man preach years ago. He said something very good. He said, “Do you know what wisdom is? Wisdom’s taking the mysterious and deep things of God and making them so simple a fool can understand them. Do you know what foolishness is?” He asked. “It’s taking the simplicity of the Gospel and making it so complicated nobody knows what’s being said.”

I remember after Brother Branham had finished preaching the “Seals” and the “Church Ages,” and all those different revelations. They were so plain and simple; we wondered how we’d missed them all these years. THAT WAS WISDOM!

On the other hand, let me tell you about a friend of mine who is a Doctor of Divinity. I hadn’t seen him in years when he came to Chicago to preach, and I had the opportunity to hear him. Well, I want to tell you this man had one of the largest vocabularies I’d ever heard, with theological terms for every expression and situation. He is a gifted and eloquent speaker. After service all the people said, “Oh that was such a wonderful service. Wasn’t it beautiful? Have you ever heard such wonderful speech?” But most had no idea what he’d been talking ABOUT, and were embarrassed to say, “I didn’t get his point,” because someone else might think they were not very spiritual. He took the simplicity of God’s Word and presented it with such complex terminology, he caused confusion. THAT WAS FOOLISHNESS!

We see so many different interpretations of the Word. Even among those who listen to Brother Branham’s tapes and read his sermons, there are different opinions as to what was actually said. Many are saying we have to agree, we’ve got to have unity. THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN, the Body of Christ unites when each individual member hears His voice through the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Those sealed with the Holy Ghost heard the Logos: they are “one” in the unity of the faith. In every Age the saints of God were baptized into the Body by coming to the unity of the faith or Logos for their Age.

Paul told the early churches “heresy” must come (I Corinthians 11:19). In Greek, heresy means ‘sects.’ Different groups and ideas MUST come so those who are approved of God might be made manifest. If you think it’s bad now, wait: It will get worse. It has to be that way. However, the elect cannot be fooled: they have unity in the Word (Logos), and will not be confused by different ideas that come along! The non-elect are and will continue to be confused by those God has raised to bring confusion.

Think for a moment: if the Devil wanted to deceive you, what do you think he would do? If he told you to go and rob or swear, or commit adultery, you’d know right away that was Satan. But when the Devil comes, he’s usually 99%—almost 100% right! What he says is mostly truth. In Matthew 16:6-12, Jesus said, “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.” Leaven is likened to corrupt doctrine; a little sin eventually affects the whole lump. It takes just a small amount; it would almost deceive the very elected, IF that were possible.

I hear so many people say, “Brother, are you in the Message?” And they all have different ideas what the ‘Message’ is. It’s not whether you’re in the Message, or the Message is in you—that isn’t the point. The question is, “Are you in Christ?” If you’re in Christ you have the baptism of the Holy Ghost; you’ve heard His Logos, which is the understanding of the Message. Do you see the difference? Many believe the Message and can quote it by page and paragraph. Only the elect can receive the Holy Ghost; they hear His voice and will not be confused.

Pillar of Cloud February 28, 1963 preceding Revelation 10:1-4 on March 8, 1963We hear it said so often, “the evidence of the Holy Ghost is to receive the Word for THIS day.” Not everyone who believes Brother Branham’s preaching receives the Logos. One says, “I believe Brother Branham was a prophet. I believe the ‘Church Age’ Messages. I believe the ‘Seals.’ I believe the Cloud appeared; I believe all this.” Then another brother says, “I believe Brother Branham was a prophet, I believe the ‘Seven Church Ages’ Message, I believe . . . etc., but I don’t agree with the first brother. I see it this way.” Somewhere another brother says, “Hold on, Brothers—I love you and all that, but you’re both wrong. I believe Brother Branham was a prophet (remember the Devil believes too! He knows the Message better than you and I). I believe this, that and the other . . . But you’re both wrong. This is the way it is . . . .”

Then people stop and say, “Wait a minute, who IS right? They’re either all wrong, or one is right and the others are wrong. How do I know who’s right and who’s wrong?” And how do you know if what I am saying is right? You can’t know unless the Lord shows you.

There are so many different ideas; so many have the Rhema without the Logos—the letter without the Spirit. Many were in Brother Branham’s meetings, but only the elect heard it right. Brother Branham did not have a formal education. But although his grammar may have been limited, the elect heard God’s Logos. God was not restricted by his choice of words. Education is an accumulation of knowledge without faith.

In America today there are men with only a few years of schooling, who head large corporations. It thrills me in this day of specialization and high tech, to see God chose an unlearned man to reveal His mystery of His Word This proves God does not require our intellectual accomplishments. Either we get it from Him, or we don’t get it at all.

How do we know, then, who is right? How do we even know if Brother Branham preached the truth? “Well,” you say, “there were signs and wonders.” How do you KNOW there were signs and wonders? Were you there when that Cloud appeared? Did you see all those things happen? How do you know? You say, “The signs and wonders prove what he preached was truth.” Many have signs and wonders—and not all preached the truth! Back in the sixties, it was Oral Roberts. Then, there was Kathryn Kuhlman. People would come into her services, just to see what she had to say, and they’d be healed. I knew a “Jesus Only” man who visited her service out of curiosity. He had a heart condition and the Lord healed him in her service, though he himself was not prayed for. Others had signs and wonders also. Signs and wonders are not proof Brother Branham preached the truth.

According to the Scriptures, Aaron had a breastplate, called the Urim and Thummim. The breastplate hung in the temple, its twelve stones are said to be the birthstones of the Patriarchs. If a man had a vision, a dream or a revelation, he would tell it before the Urim and Thummim. If it was of the Holy Ghost, a light or rainbow would flash, vindicating it as truth. However, if the light did not appear, it was wrong.

The Bible is our Urim and Thummim; every revelation is already within its pages. The Greek for “revelation” means to ‘unveil’ or ‘uncover.’ Brother Branham’s Message is the ‘revealed Word’ which finished the mystery of God, veiled under symbols in the Apocalypse, or the Revelation of Jesus Christ, uncovering Jesus Christ, the Logos of God. The prophet simply preached the Logos veiled in the Rhema. Brother Branham proved each Seal by Matthew 24. They may have been hidden, but they were already there. As we listened to him preach those Seals, the same thing happened to us, as happened on the Emmaus road—the Lord drew nigh and opened our understanding. Beginning with Moses and the prophets, He drew back the veil and uncovered the Logos, just as “the Message” does. Amen! These things were always there.

And so you say, “What happened, Brother Olson? How come there are so many divisions—so many different concepts and ideas?” I’ll tell you why. It is because some believers are making the Rhema of Brother Branham’s Message their Urim and Thummim. Not comparing it with Scripture to find the Logos, they’ve veiled Jesus Christ once again, in the Rhema of the Message.

Only God’s Word is infallible. ‘Infallible’ means something that can never fail. Jesus said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away [or change] but My Logos shall not pass away [change]” (Matthew 24:35). Amen. We can only know the truth by applying the Word test, the Bible test.

We talk about “the Word.” Do you know “the Word” is a Title? “Father” is a Title. A Title is a word that describes or identifies a person or thing. Son, Holy Ghost, I Am, Alpha and Omega, are all Titles. The Title itself is not God, but an Office which identifies certain attributes which reveal His nature. God was expressing Himself in Christ who is the whole concept, the Logos or idea of God, made flesh.

In the Scriptures, the Logos is likened to a seed: “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth forever” (I Peter 1:23). “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit” (John 3:6). Therefore, until you have been born again of the Spirit, the seed of God is not in you: God is not your Father. Adam’s seed and the serpent seed are both corruptible: the seed of God, which is the Word or Logos, is incorruptible. We are born again when we receive incorruptible seed, or Logos, through the spoken Word or Rhema, whereby God imparts His Life through faith in Jesus Christ, the Logos, and we put on a new nature.

James 1:21: “receive with meekness the engrafted [the Greek ’emphutos,’ means ‘implanted’] Logos which is able to save your souls.” In other words through preaching the incorruptible seed, which is Christ, the seed of God is implanted in us through faith, and we are born again.

The Bible is God’s thoughts (Logos) put in written form (Rhema). Everyone who’s been born again is filled with the Holy Ghost, which is the Spirit of Christ expressing Himself through the believer by manifesting the Logos for his day. We act like Him and do as He would do, because the Holy Spirit expresses the nature of Christ through our faith.

The Bible says that in the last days there will be a famine—not for food or water, but for the hearing of the Word. In this day and age, the Gospel is being preached more than it was at any other point in history: Christian stations preach the Gospel over radio and television. It is recorded on cassette, and printed as literature. The famine, you see, is not for the preaching of the Rhema, but for hearing the Logos. You see the difference? Only the elected can hear His Logos, and because the non-elect are offended it cannot often be shared.

When you listen to Brother Branham or some preacher, you hear his Rhema. Jesus said, “Why do you not understand My speech [Rhema]? Even because you cannot hear My word [Logos]” (John 8:43). They all heard His Rhema, but we must have the Holy Ghost to understand the Logos. The Holy Ghost reveals to us the thought behind the words. Mark 16:19-20: “after the Lord had spoken unto them, He was received up into heaven and sat on the right hand of God [meaning absolute authority]. And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the Logos . . . [not Rhema] . . . with signs following.”

The Lord confirms the Logos! He stands behind His Word.

We talk about vindication. We call Brother Branham a vindicated prophet. God confirmed the Gift He gave the man through the signs and wonders that followed him. In Ephesians 4:7-8: “But unto every one us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore He saith when He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.”

Now, the MAN is not the Gift. The OFFICE of the man is the Gift of Christ. When God vindicates His prophets, He is confirming to others the Office of prophet, or the Gift of Christ that is in the man. God did not vindicate the words of the man, William Branham. He vindicated His Own Words (Logos) expressed through the prophet.

How do we distinguish between Brother Branham’s words, and the Word of the Lord? When a prophet pronounces something in the Name of the Lord, or says something is THUS SAITH THE LORD, he is saying the thought was not His own, but God expressing Himself through his lips. Our test, or Urim and Thummim is the Bible. Anything a genuine prophet speaks in the Name of the Lord, must line up with the Bible, then it is THUS SAITH THE LORD. If what a man says does not line up with the BIBLE, it is just the words of the man. A genuine prophet will NEVER fail the Word test.

In his sermon, “He Cares, Do You Care?” on July 21, 1963, Brother Branham cautioned “be careful what you’re listening to. See? There’s so much of it that it’s just the human side . . .” God uses human frailty to bring forth a divine Message, we must discern what the Spirit is saying (Logos) through the words (Rhema) of the man (“… the human side”).

“The Word,” or Jesus Christ in the Form of the Holy Ghost, comes to every believer, or he couldn’t be a believer! That’s what makes you one with the Word—a Word believer or Word Bride. But we receive it SECONDARILY, for “The Word is FIRST revealed to the prophet.”

Amos 3:7 says, “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets.” Before God can bring judgment or destruction, He reveals His counsel or plan to His prophets in advance as a warning to the people, providing an escape to those who hear and obey.

Brother Branham was a prophet, and he had open visions. Open vision is the sovereignty of God over which Brother Branham had no control. He waited on the angel to come and rest upon someone before God would give him a vision. Brother Branham said to me one time, “Brother Olson, I have to go by faith. I can go into a congregation and we’ll have a healing meeting, I don’t know if the angel will come or not. I have no control over it. HE has control over me. By faith I believe if I go in His Name, He’ll be there.” When he went in His Name the angel came, because God honoured His faith. God stands behind the Gift, not the man. When Brother Branham had a vision it was the sovereignty of God. He could say, “Your name is so-and-so, you live here, etc.,” and it never failed, because it was the grace of God. Visions come under a certain anointing; preaching requires another anointing. They are two different operations or manifestations of the Holy Spirit. How many times after preaching, did we hear Brother Branham say, “I’m going from one anointing into another, and the people don’t understand what that’s like.” Then he would wait for that change of anointing.

The Bible says Balaam was a prophet. Balak wanted him to curse Israel, but as a prophet of God, he could not do it! He got up to prophesy evil but he prophesied good, because the Gift or Office of prophecy was the sovereignty of God. He couldn’t help himself! So in order to gain Balak’s reward, He taught them error when he preached. Like modern preachers who know there is no such thing as a Trinity or baptism in three Titles, but for the sake of denominational reward, will twist the Rhema and cause the congregations to believe the lie. Don’t claim Brother Olson said Brother Branham taught error—I’m using the example of Balaam to show you the difference between administrations. As a prophet, Balaam could not prophesy to curse Israel; but as a preacher he could teach contrary to the Word and bring the people into idolatry by departing from Exodus 34:14-16, “. . . thou shalt worship no other God etc.” This illustrates that the gift of a prophet is a separate manifestation of the Spirit distinct from the operation of a Gift to teach. They are not the same thing. Balaam was a prophet; his prophetic Gift was the sovereignty of God over which he had no control.

When Brother Branham received a revelation, or Logos, it was up to him to faithfully preach what God had revealed. The same is true of your pastor; when the Lord reveals something, or uncovers the Logos, he’s responsible to preach it. The Holy Ghost takes his words, and reveals the thought behind them. We must be careful not to look to the man but to the Gift of God in the man.

Brother, the Bride of Christ will not be deceived. She hears His Logos and knows how to apply the Urim and Thummim, or Word, proving everything that is preached from Genesis to Revelation, which is the complete revelation of Jesus Christ. If it’s in the Word it was always there: we must not add one idea, thought, or concept to what lies within its pages.

The apostles were anointed of God. Paul was ordained of God to write the New Testament, and lay the foundation or basis upon which our faith rests. “Other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” It’s already there and always has been. Through the Dark Ages the faithful were martyred and the faith was lost, but the foundation was always there. In the last days, God sent a messenger to restore us back to the original foundation. Malachi 4:5-6 says the spirit of Elijah would turn the heart of the children back to the faith of their Pentecostal fathers.

It says he’ll “turn their HEARTS.” In Greek as in Hebrew the word “heart” signifies the seat of intellect—the mind, purpose, intention, knowledge, understanding and insight of a person. We read, “out of the abundance of the heart” (Matthew 12:34); “to love the Lord thy God with all thy heart . . .” (Mark 12:30); “Why reason ye in your hearts?” (Mark 2:8); “Jesus perceived the thought of their hearts” (as the Holy Ghost did though Brother Branham, Luke 9:47). In Luke 21:14 it says, “Bear it, therefore, in your heart for a purpose . . .” Luke 24:38 says, “Why do thoughts arise in your heart?” You see? The heart is the intellect, your mind. That’s the real you. Malachi 4 is to RESTORE our understanding or knowledge, to agreement with the faith of the Pentecostal fathers. After Brother Branham had finished preaching, I looked up my Bible and knew what Paul had been talking about, I knew what Peter had been saying, and what John meant, because I was turned back in my understanding and intellect to the faith of the apostolic fathers.

Now brother, if you’ve never been turned back in your heart, no matter how well you know the Message and profess to believe, you’ve missed it. We must have the same faith they had in the beginning. Paul said, “If our Gospel be hid, it is hid from those who are lost”—”other foundation can no man lay.” It was already there when Brother Branham came. God’s messenger was not sent to deliver a new gospel, but to RESTORE our faith to the original foundation laid in the early church.

It says in the last days there will come a great falling away, people will not endure sound doctrine, and shall turn away from the truth and be turned to fables. “The last days” is the Messianic Age of redemption and completion; it runs from Pentecost to the consummation. We live in the end of the last days, Laodicea and the world church system having ended in apostasy in 1963.

There was no apostasy during the Dark Ages. Churches did not meekly accept dogma; the saints were faithful unto death at the hands of Rome. In order for you to apostatize you must have something to fall away from. Lutherans could not apostatize in their Age, they weren’t restored back. Methodists couldn’t fall away in their Age, they were not restored. But at the end of the Pentecostal Age, God sent a prophet and “finished the mystery of God,” to restore His people back to the faith of the fathers. They did run well, but the Pentecostal denominations and those of other Ages, all rejected the messenger and His Message, fulfilling Revelation 3:20; the Gentile churches end in apostasy.

The “falling away” or apostasy could not take place until first the faith was restored back to its original foundation. God permits it, all who will fall away, will fall away. It’s also happening today in “Message” circles. Only those with the Seal of God will remain steadfast. With the Holy Ghost you will believe the Word, and it will hold you. Nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. The Message is, “Come out of Babylon and be filled with the Spirit!” Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever.

There is only ONE Message. I John 1:5: “This then is the MESSAGE which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is LIGHT, and in Him is no darkness at all.” The Message is Spiritual LIGHT, faith, or revelation of the Word on which Christ said He would build His Church. Zechariah 14 describes how the denominational Ages culminate in apostasy: “And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Light shall not be clear, nor dark: but it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at the evening time it shall be Light”.

Proverbs 4:18: “But the path of the just is the shining Light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.” After the centuries of Dark Ages, the people saw Light. When Luther preached “the just shall live by faith,” the Light began to shine. Wesley followed with sanctification and that Light grew brighter. Pentecost, with the baptism of the Holy Ghost shone more of the same Light, a Light to lighten the Gentiles. The Holy Spirit working through Brother Branham caused that Light to shine brighter still. Today as in every Age, the Message is Jesus, the Light of the world. As in every Age, its greatest enemies are those who claim to be the household of faith but who are impersonating the glare of an Age gone by, NOT walking in the Light Jesus is manifesting.

Judas Iscariot was chosen by the Lord Jesus Himself. One of the twelve apostles Jesus sent forth saying, “The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand: heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead . . . etc.” Judas was said to be ‘in the Message,’ for his day, but he betrayed the Word and never made it to Pentecost!

In the Eternity to come, in that Holy City, the New Jerusalem, “there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign forever and ever”.

Dear Christian, “He that is of God heareth God’s Words” (John 8:47). “And ALL Thy children shall be taught of God” (Isaiah 54:13): being ONE WITH THE WORD proves whether you are of God and Spirit-filled. No other criterion. “It’s Christ [the Word] in you the hope of glory”.

Why don’t you stand up now and say out loud, “I CHOOSE JESUS CHRIST!”

Jesus Christ the same—yesterday and today, and forever is the Message and the spiritual food for today. If you believe on Him and obey His Word, He will lead you into that way everlasting and open your understanding. “If so be that ye have heard Him, and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus” (Ephesians 4:21). nl954.htm

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 953

“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’s good to see your happy face. We are a blessed people living in the closing weeks and months of the Gentile dispensation with the Message that will take us Home before the Lord smites the earth with a curse.

The focus of our ministry is what Peter called “the present Truth” what Jesus is doing now. I was very concerned with the warning in last week’s Newsletter and felt led to reinforce that warning in this week’s main article, “The Ten Virgins.” Our main articles and news items review both what Jesus is doing now, and what His adversary is doing now so that none of us is left wondering.

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

US-Russia Relations: Why Donald Trump is right to look East

December 16, 2016 — Looking ahead, if Trump were to be successful in brokering a deal with Putin and embarking on a new era of détente, he would surely be doing the whole world a great favour. The economic fortunes of America, Europe and Russia would all benefit enormously from closer economic cooperation.

The Russian economy has been ringed off limits and commercial links severed at the behest of short-sighted politicians. By adopting their anti-Russian stance, America and Europe have been inflicting wounds on themselves and weakening their own economies. Their people are losing out by refraining from trading and doing business with Russia which actually represents a vast market for US and European goods and offers immense potential for investment.

Trump is likely to be proved right by seeking to break with the West’s current dominant foreign policy which strikes an obsessively antagonistic posture towards Russia. He should promptly reverse economic sanctions that damage America’s prosperity as well as Russia’s . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

The ‘Elite’ Coup of 2016

Obama

December 15, 2016 — Should 37 Republican electors, put there by voters in their states to vote for Trump, be convinced to move from electing Trump to abstain or vote for someone else, Trump would miss the needed 270 votes. The whole election of the president would then be kicked up to the House of Representatives. Should the electors vote for Trump there is still a possibility that members of the House and the Senate could officially question that vote and cause delays or Congressional probes and legal challenges.

Here are the detailed general proceedings and specifics for the Electoral College as explained by the National Archives and Records Administration. . . As an alternative to legal shenanigans Trump’s inauguration could be delayed by Obama’s order to the intelligence community to create a formal review of Russian intervention in the election by January 20. That is not by chance the official inauguration date! Full story: moonofalabama.org

Stop the CIA Coup: The Deep State versus Donald Trump

December 12, 2016 — The CIA is up to its old tricks: overthrowing a democratically elected government. Only this time it’s our government.

CIA logoAs they are now legally allowed to do ever since the law against covert CIA propaganda in the United States was repealed, the Agency has leaked to the Washington Post reports—via anonymous third parties—of its alleged assessment of a Russian campaign to hand Donald Trump the White House . . . Trump represents a threat to this grand design, and therefore has to be stopped by whatever means necessary. His desire to “get along with Russia,” his opposition to regime change in Syria, his critique of the Libyan misadventure, his foreign policy stance in general—all this meant that he would come to power and “drain the swamp” of the CIA and the State Department.

The irony here is that the accusation levelled at Trump—that his historic victory represents a successful attempt by a foreign power to take control of the White House—is a classic case of projection. What we are witnessing is a joint CIA-Saudi operation to overthrow the duly elected President of the United States.

In a recent speech given on his “victory tour,” Trump said: “We will pursue a new foreign policy that finally learns from the mistakes of the past. We will stop looking to topple regimes and overthrow governments. Our goal is stability not chaos.”

For the whole of its existence, the CIA has been in the business of toppling regimes that didn’t bow to Washington’s dictates, from Guatemala to Iran to Chile and on and on. The production of chaos is their whole reason for existing. Trump would effectively put them out of business. No wonder they want to destroy him . . . Full story: antiwar.com


US Intel Vets dispute [Egregious] Russia Hacking Claims

December 12, 2016 — Since leaking requires physically removing data—on a thumb drive, for example—the only way such data can be copied and removed with no electronic trace of what has left the server is via a physical storage device . . . the NSA would know where and how any “hacked” emails from the DNC, HRC or any other servers were routed through the network . . . Given NSA’s extensive trace capability, we conclude that DNC and HRC servers alleged to have been hacked were, in fact, not hacked.

The evidence that should be there is absent; otherwise, it would surely be brought forward, since this could be done without any danger to sources and methods. Thus, we conclude that the emails were leaked by an insider . . . government department or agency with access to NSA databases, or perhaps someone within the DNC . . . CIA is almost totally dependent on NSA for ground truth in the communications arena . . . it beggars belief that NSA would be unable to identify anyone—Russian or not—attempting to interfere in a US election by hacking.

Comment: Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan, close associate of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, told the Daily Mail he flew to Washington for a clandestine handoff with one of the email sources in September. He said he received a package in a wooded area near American University. “Neither of [the leaks] came from the Russians. The source, a “disgusted” Democratic whistleblower, had legal access to the information . . . inside leaks not hacks.” Former NSA official William Binney concurs.


Syrian Govt. retakes Eastern Aleppo

December 14, 2016 — The fall of eastern Aleppo to Syrian government forces, backed by Russian airpower and Shia militias aligned with Iran, marks a turning point in the more than five-year-old war for regime change that was orchestrated by Washington and its regional allies. The enclave within the northern Syrian city represented the last significant population centre under “rebel” control. It also represents a debacle for the US and the other Western powers, along with Saudi Arabia and the other reactionary Sunni oil monarchies, which poured in billions of dollars of arms and funding for the Islamist militias, while funnelling in tens of thousands of jihadist fighters from across the Middle East, Europe and beyond to ravage Syria.

This strategic setback for the US imperialist intervention in Syria has exacerbated the bitter internecine conflicts within the US ruling establishment over US foreign policy and particularly Washington’s war drive against Russia in the run-up to Donald Trump’s inauguration as US president next month. Trump had insisted during his presidential campaign that the US should ally itself more closely with Moscow in combating “terrorism” in Syria, a policy strongly opposed by top echelons within the Pentagon and CIA . . . This rape of Syria is not about to end. “Even if it is the end of the siege in Aleppo, it is not the end of the war in Syria. It will go on,” State Department spokesman John Kirby told reporters in Washington . . . the Obama administration, barely one month before it leaves office, has ordered another 200 US Special Operations troops into Syria, joining 300 on the ground there, ostensibly to prepare Kurdish and allied militias to retake Raqqa, the so-called capital of the Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria.

And last week, Obama ordered a waiver of the US Arms Export Control Act with relation to “foreign forces, irregular forces, groups, or individuals engaged in supporting or facilitating ongoing US military operations to counter terrorism in Syria.” The presidential directive sets the stage for a major escalation of the US arms flow into Syria.

While the initial beneficiaries are the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces, the Kurdish-dominated militias that serve as the main proxy force in the US-backed offensive against Raqqa, the same ruling can be used to turn on the CIA spigot once again of US arms to Al Qaeda-linked forces fighting the Syrian government.Full story: wsws.org


Washington Post admits ‘Rebels’ invaded Syria

December 14, 2016 — For months as terrorists backed by the United States, Turkey, and their Persian Gulf allies lost significant ground to the Syrian Arab Army in Syria’s northern city of Aleppo, the battle was characterized by the Western media and Western politicians as a brutal assault on the city’s residents—the extinguishing of a 6 year-long uprising . . .

The Washington Post’s first-sentence admission that Aleppo was never the scene of an uprising, but rather the host of an invasion lays bare all the lies that have been told since to justify the city’s occupation by groups of terrorists including US State Department-designated foreign terrorist organization Jabhat Al Nusra—quite literally Al Qaeda in Syria and progenitor of the self-proclaimed “Islamic State” itself.

With the city of Aleppo now fully liberated, it is important for the alternative media to catch these lies and the Western media’s retrospective admissions to telling them, in order to maintain momentum in favour of the Syrian people as they attempt to restore security and order across their nation.

With many terrorist groups retreating to the dysfunctional and diminutive city of Idlib in the north, or surging forth toward Palmyra in the east, pivotal battles still remain to be won by the Syrian Arab Army and their allies. Many of the same lies and intentional mischaracterizations used to sell the occupation of Aleppo and fend off the city’s liberation will undoubtedly be used again. It is essential to make sure when these tools of deception are used again, they are sufficiently blunted by informing the public of the truth—a truth the West’s own admissions reveals.

Congress votes to give Jihadists Anti-aircraft Missiles

December 14, 2016 — On Thursday, the Senate passed a bill that puts every American who travels by plane at risk. It is among the stupidest pieces of legislation ever written and it explains—to a great extent—why the US Congress has a public approval rating of 13 percent and is among the most loathed institutions in America.

The 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) passed the House last Friday in a 375-34 vote. On Thursday, it cleared the senate with a 92 to 7 margin. The bill will now be sent to Obama where it is expected to be signed into law. According to an article on SOFREP titled “Congress authorizes anti-aircraft missiles for Syrian opposition”:

“Congress for the first time authorized the Department of Defense to provide vetted-Syrian rebels with anti-aircraft missiles . . . Under the bill, the Secretaries of Defense and State must submit a report to Congress explaining why they determined Syrian groups need man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS). You read that right, Congress just passed a bill that will provide shoulder-launched ground-to-air missiles to lunatic jihadists . . . that these Islamic militants are fully vetted is complete nonsense . . . the distinction between the “good” terrorists and the “bad” terrorists is pure bunkum. The various militias are merely the many heads of the same homicidal anti-government hydra that has killed over 400,000 Syrians and decimated a large part of the country . . . now that Obama’s proxy-army is getting pulverized in Aleppo, Congress has taken off the gloves and gone into full-revenge mode . . . our Nobel Peace Prize-winning president just gave Congress’s idiot plan his ringing endorsement . . .

‘Fake News’ on Aleppo Liberation, Western Media Lies and Fabrications

December 15, 2016 — For the first time since mid-2012, nearly all eastern Aleppo residents are free from captivity—held against their will as human shields by US-supported terrorists. Ain’t the way Western media see it, blasting out fake news headlines and reports—supporting Obama’s genocidal war, mocking the suffering of Syrians and all people devastated by US barbarism . . .

Once their withdrawal is completed, remaining eastern Aleppo residents are safe to stay in their homes. The entire city will be free at last from the scourge of US-backed terrorists—at least for now. Full story: globalresearch.ca


Report from Aleppo: a Historic Moment

President Al Assad

December 12, 2016 — I have a bird’s eye view from my hotel room. Every few seconds there are huge explosions rending the air and lighting up the sky a few kilometres away, interspersed with rapid bursts of gunfire. I can see tracer bullets, and the trail of missiles as they hit their target . . . I watch and listen with sadness and ambiguity. Sadness because as a priest I abhor violence, hate conflict, am thinking of any civilians trapped in that hell-hole and wondering how many are dying . . . bloody-minded single-mindedness of an international agenda . . . not a Government attacking its own people. I have laid out before me a whole city in the majority of which, and as in all other Government-held areas of the country, citizens from whatever faith or ethnic community, are getting on with their lives and living together.

I am standing a few kilometres away from the battle zone but am safe. The bombing is taking place . . . only in those small pockets of the city where the ‘rebels’ have held out. Most of the civilians that have been able to flee those areas are being looked after in Centres run by the Syrian Government and Syrian Red Crescent and with aid which the Russians are providing. They all tell of the ‘rebels’ shooting at those trying to leave. (Few know anything about the ‘White Helmets’ and those that do, have little good to say about them because they are working with the terrorists.) . . . as long as Western-backed al Qaeda-linked terrorists are able to operate, there can and will be no peace in the city or the country. Believe me; most Syrians are cheering their army on. The refusal of western governments and media to listen to the Syrian people, and to follow only their own agendas, has ensured that this brutal conflict and suffering on all sides has gone on for far too long . . .

House passes Bill allowing Govt to microchip Citizens with ‘Mental Disabilities’

December 4, 2016 — Kevin and Avonte’s Law of 2016 H.R.4919 — 114th Congress (2015-2016), Missing Americans Alert Program Act of 2016. This Bill amends the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 to revise and rename the Missing Alzheimer’s Disease Patient Alert Program as the Missing Americans Alert Program and to reauthorize it . . .

It directs the Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance to award grants to state and local law enforcement or public safety agencies and non-profit organizations to prevent wandering and locate missing individuals with dementia or developmental disabilities. DOJ must establish and certain grant recipients must comply with standards and best practices related to the use of tracking technology to locate missing individuals with dementia or developmental disabilities.

The bill amends the Missing Children’s Assistance Act to specify that, with respect to training and technical assistance provided by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, cases involving missing and exploited children include cases involving children with developmental disabilities such as autism.

The Greatest Mystery of Earth Revealed! Ezekiel’s Wheels Unveiled

Comment: This is interesting and shows us the wonderful understanding Noah brought with him in the Ark was revealed to his sons and their successors. Ham, his wife, and of course Noah’s Serpent’s seed wife, were unbelievers; Ham, Cush and Nimrod reintroduced antediluvian paganism of gods and goddesses which form the basis of classical mythology perverted from the truth. This explains the simplicity of Ezekiel 1 and Isaiah 6 which reveals the unity of God in His creation and the gateway back to Him through the Blood of Christ (William Branham, Revelation, Chapter Four, Part III).

It is pathetic to see the folly of men attempting to “be as God” with the wires and pipes of the CERN experiment when by faith they might have exercised the Spoken Word. God sent the prophet William Branham to reveal the Seven Thunders and “finish the mystery of God” that without esoteric speculation we may ‘wirelessly’ exercise the ‘third pull,’ change in the atoms and cross into another dimension.


The Absolute

Here are a few quotes from Gods prophet on The Absolute sent by Pastor Brian Kocourek subsequent to Newsletter 952:

“And let’s just search back. If that isn’t Scriptural, Then leave it alone. If I ever say anything in your presence, as a doctrine or a teaching, that’s not in the Bible, forget it, because it’s not right. And if any angel (I don’t care how real he looks, and how inspired he is), if he speaks contrary to the Word of God, leave him alone. He’s not of God. Galatians 1:8 said, “An angel from heaven preach any other doctrine than this is, what already taught, let him be accursed.” We don’t take nothing but just what God . . .” (Explaining the Ministry, #62-0129, par. 9).

“And the Bible said that Jambres and Jannes would raise up in the last days and almost deceive the very elect. Be careful, brother, and Keep it right on the Word of God. Don’t leave there. A whole lot of things today that’s going on that’s not coming from that Word. And you leave it alone. Stay with the Bible. ‘Cause the Bible said it would deceive the very elect if possible” (Jehovah Jireh, #56-0429, par. 59).

“If it wasn’t Written in the Word for this age, I’d walk away from it. Anything that’s not in that Word, I don’t believe it. Now, I wouldn’t accept it. I don’t say I wouldn’t believe it, but I don’t accept it. I don’t understand it. But when it’s in this Word, and a promise for this age, I understand it. Do you? May the Lord help us now. And you reach up now by faith, believe that . . . We’re in His Presence, rather” Jehovah Jireh, Part I, p. 25:191).

“And I’m a fundamentalist. Everything must come from the Scripture. I wouldn’t say I wouldn’t believe it, but I wouldn’t understand it just right if it wasn’t from the Scripture. And if any time, during the time of the phenomenal part of the healing services, if any person, whatever you belong to, what church, if you ever see anything that’s questioned, that we do here, and that’s not in the Scripture, well, then you come to me, because I certainly want to stay right in this Book, ’cause this is the Foundation. And all Scripture and all operations of the Holy Spirit must come from the Bible, then I believe it. Now, He could do something that wasn’t in the Bible. It’d still be God. But I’ll understand it better if it comes right from the Bible. I kinda of like it that way, ’cause I know that it’s right then” (Hidden life in Christ, #55-1110, 9).

“The only thing you can put your trust in is THUS SAITH THE LORD from the Bible. Now, Church, that is exactly where I have tried to keep you, my children. And if something happens to me and God takes me out of this earth, don’t you never fail. Remember this with all your heart: stay with that Word. Don’t you leave that Word. Anything contrary to It, leave it alone, no matter what it is. Then you know its right. See?” (COD. p. 995:8).

Comment: Faith, if it is faith, will be anchored in a clear understanding of the written Word of God’s Bible, and revelation of the Spoken Word will be anchored on a clear understanding of the written Word.


The Ten Virgins

Hear the words of St. Paul in I Corinthians 9:27 – 10:11, “I discipline my body and make it serve me, lest after preaching to others, I myself should be disqualified. Never forget, brethren, that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; and all 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 from the supernatural Rock which followed them, and that Rock was Christ. Nevertheless God was not pleased with most of them: for they were destroyed in the wilderness.”

“Now these things occurred as examples for us, not to not lust after evil as they also lusted, neither be idolaters as some of them were; as it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to dance.” We must not indulge in immorality as some of them committed, and twenty-three thousand fell in one day . . . Now all these things happened to them as a lesson for us, and were written as a warning for us, upon whom the end of the dispensations has come”.

Jude 1-7, “Jude, the servant [and foster-brother] of Jesus Christ, and brother of James [His other foster-brother], to them that are sanctified by God the Father, preserved in Jesus Christ, [for His possession as the reward for His sufferings, His glory and crown, enabling Him to say: “Yours they were and You gave them to Me; and they have kept Your Word”  (John 17:6, 12; I Peter 1:5)], and called (invited or bidden to be saints]: may mercy and peace and love be multiplied unto you. Beloved, while I was making every effort to write to you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write and exhort you to earnestly contend for the [acquisition and preservation of the common] faith which was once delivered to the saints (Titus 1:4). Because there are certain men crept in unawares [like thieves and robbers (John 10:1, 7)], who were ordained to this condemnation long ago (Jude 14-16), ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ”.

“I will therefore remind you, although you are fully aware of the facts, how the Lord, having saved a whole nation of people from the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. And the angels [Adam’s seed] which kept not their first estate [as sons of God], but left their own lineage by miscegenation with Cain’s race [which is genocide], He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness to the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the surrounding cities, in like manner, abandoned themselves in sexual immorality and indulged in homosexuality, are set before us as a warning by suffering the vengeance of eternal fire”.

Jude wrote on doctrine to the church of his day and subsequent generations to lay hold on the unchanging revelation of God’s Word and exhorted the wise and foolish virgins to beware of brethren and false teachers. Salvation is not new birth. Judas Iscariot was the most trusted disciple; he preached salvation and deliverance through the power of God with a ministry imparted by Christ, but motivated by a wrong spirit and lost. And Balaam caused Israel to commit natural and physical fornication with the Moabite girls. Physical fornication is the spirit that lies in organized religion and all fornicators will have their place in the lake of fire (Revelation 2:20-24; 19:20-21).

Addressing the church of the end-time Jude pointed to the sinful characteristics of the days of Noah and Lot which Jesus prophesied would repeat in this our day. Since the unchanging God is just and holy, all who sin after the manner of these men, typified by the physical and spiritual Serpent’s seed who lived in the days of Noah and the abominable people of the days of Lot, cannot plead ignorance in consequence of their sin and will receive vengeance. You, too, if you are deceived by them, are without excuse. Some men heard the gracious calling offered by the revelation of Jesus Christ and what He accomplished as our KINSMAN Redeemer with repentance and water baptism in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of past unbelief and the promise of regeneration to those who press into Christ. But taking hold of the call they turn grace into disgrace and moral wantonness, and use liberty in Christ as “a cloak for maliciousness”  (I Peter 2:16).

In II Peter 2:4-6, the reference is not to doctrines but to historical facts: “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, [Adam’s race (Genesis 6:1-4)] but cast them down to tartarus, and committed them to chains of darkness to be reserved until judgment; and spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; and if by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes He condemned them to extinction, and made them an example to those who were to be ungodly . . .”

These scriptures typically describe the depths to which today’s antitypical world has fallen pending the close of the Gentile dispensation, Daniel’s Seventieth Week and Armageddon as Jesus prophesied in Matthew 24:3, 32-51 and Luke 17:22-37.

I Peter 3:18-22, “For Christ also died [as a sacrifice] for sins once for all, the just on behalf of the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in His Theophany in which he went and preached to the souls in prison; who were disobedient when God’s patience waited in the days of Noah during the building of the ark, wherein eight souls were saved by water.”

“Its counterpart, baptism, saves you now, not by washing physical filth from the flesh, but by an intense desire for a clear conscience in God’s Presence through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities and powers subject to Him”.

This scripture speaks of our ministry to those who are without in this hour. When Israel rejected and murdered their Messiah, the Law of Moses and God’s dealing with the nation was terminated for two thousand years, but Jesus continued ministering. Entering His theophany He preached to the souls of sinners captive by death and justified the Old Testament saints in Paradise but condemned the sinners in tartarus on the other side of the chasm who had come to the place of no more repentance.

BreachAs the Hebrew dispensation of Law ended and Israel has still not recognized this reality, so the seven Gentile Church Ages have ended; the world church system is materially “rich and increased with goods and has need of nothing; but spiritually it is wretched and miserable, bankrupt of faith, and naked of the Blood and blind to its state.” Christ’s mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Word is fulfilled. Indeed, redemption is over, Christ is waiting for the last Member of His end-time Bride to recognize her day and it’s Message. Thus our ministry without the Body is predominantly to souls who are imprisoned now in the breach between the Church Ages and the Seals.

The BreachThis diagram explains how the Body of Christ was built of lively stones formed of the saints baptized into Christ as written epistles of the Message spoken by the angel sent to each Church in their day (Revelation 1 – 3). It shows Pentecost, each of seven Church Ages, the prominent virtue displayed by the token for their Age, and names the seven earthly angels. The Laodicea Church Age ended in 1963 when Christ fulfilled Revelation 4, 5, and 10:1-4, claiming the Title Deed to all He has redeemed, breaking the Seven Seals then revealing their mystery through His Prophet, William Branham. As you will be aware, the Capstone was never placed on the Great Pyramid of Giza which was God’s second Bible. It represents Jesus Christ, the Headstone who was rejected by Israel (Matthew 21:42; Ephesians 2:20-22; I Peter 2:4-9). The Body was made up in 1963; today the unregenerate world is in the Breach between the Church Ages and the Seals; one can only cross the Breach into Christ the Capstone made up of His end-time Bride by a clear revelation of the “Shout” of I Thessalonians 4:16 which is the Message of the seventh angel, the “midnight Cry” of Matthew 25:6 calling “Behold the Bridegroom”.

The Prophet explained, “Now, remember, that was not Jesus talking to Abraham there that could discern the thoughts in Sarah’s mind behind him. That was not Jesus; He had not yet been born. But it was a Man in human flesh, that Abraham called, “Elohim, the great Almighty.” And Jesus said, “As it was in the days of Sodom,” now watch close, “in the days of Sodom, so will it be at the Coming of the Son of man, when the Son of man is being revealed.” Not no more as a church (See?), not no more; the Bride’s called. See? “In that day the Son of man will be revealed.” What? To join the Church to the Head, unite the marriage of the Bride.

The Bridegroom call [Matthew 26:6] will come right through this, when the Son of man will come down and come in human flesh to unite the two together. The Church has to be the Word; He is the Word, and the two unites together, and to do that it’ll take the manifestation of the revealing of the Son of man. Not a clergyman. I don’t know . . . Do you see what I mean?

See, it’s Son of man, Jesus Christ, will come down in human flesh among us, and will make His Word so real that it’ll unite the Church and Him as one, the Bride, and then she’ll go Home to the Wedding Supper. Amen. She’s already united (See?); we go to the wedding supper, not to the marriage. “Fill your flesh . . . self, of all the flesh of mighty men, ’cause the marriage of the Lamb has come.” But the rapture is going to the wedding supper. When the Word here unites with the person, and they two become one, and then what does it do then? It manifests the Son of man again, not the church theologians, the Son of man. The Word and the Church becomes one. Whatever the Son of man done, He was the Word; the Church does the same thing” (Proving His Word, p. 44:236).

Brother Branham said: “The first thing come when He starts descending from the heaven, there’s a shout. What is it? It’s a Message to get the people together. A Message comes forth first. Now, “Lamp trimming time. Rise and trim your lamps.” What watch was that? The seventh, not the sixth, the seventh. “Behold the Bridegroom cometh. Rise and trim your lamps.” And they did. Some of them found they didn’t even have any oil in their lamp. See? But its lamp trimming time. It’s Malachi 4 time when you come . . . It’s Luke 17. It’s Isaiah . . . All those prophecies that it can perfectly set in order for this day in the Scriptures, we see it living right there . . .

See these things happen, my dear brother, sister, when God in heaven knows I could die on this platform right now, you just ought to walk around awhile . . . It’s tremendous. When you see God come from the heaven, stand before groups of men, and stand there, declare Himself just as He ever did . . . And that’s the Truth, and this Bible open. See? That’s right. We’re here.

And the denominational system is dead. It’s gone. It’ll never rise again. It’ll be burned. That’s what you do with the husk on the field. Flee from it. Get into Christ. Don’t say, “I belong to the Methodist”; “I belong to the Baptists”; “I belong to the Pentecostal.” You get into Christ. And if you’re in Christ, there’s not a Word written in here but what you believe it. I don’t care what anybody else says. And then God makes that thing manifested, ’cause you . . . When He pours the Spirit upon the Word, what happens? Just like putting water on any other seed. It’ll live, and it’ll bring forth of its kind” (The Rapture, p. 29:141-143).

In I Corinthians 1:22 Paul said, “The Judeans require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom,” so in Matthew’s Gospel, which was directed primarily to Israelites, the disciples asked Jesus three questions in Matthew 24:3:

 

  • “When will the temple be destroyed?” In verses 15 – 21 Jesus described the warning signs of the time.
  • “What will be the sign of Your ‘parousia’ [or arrival and subsequent Presence] with Israel?” In Matthew 24:30-31 Jesus described the sign of the Pillar of Cloud manifest over the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:4-5).

  • “What will be the sign of the consummation of the age in contradistinction from the future aeon of the world to come” (Matthew 13:39; Hebrews 9:26)? This sign was the restoration of the state of Israel in the Land of the Covenant. In verses 32-35 Jesus assured the Israelites that despite “the time of Jacob’s trouble” their race will continue until the antitype of the sixth day of Israel’s Feast of Tabernacles is fulfilled in the harvest or birth of the nation in one day.

 

When Jesus spoke neither man nor angel knew “the day and hour” because the Book was sealed from the foundation of the world (Matthew 24:36; Revelation 5:3). The Prophet explained, “Jesus did NOT say no man could know the year, month or week in which His Coming was to be completed(An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:4). His Coming will be completed with the regeneration and martyrdom of the 144,000 elect Israelites and His theophany with the saints at the battle of Armageddon when the beast and the false prophet are cast alive into the lake of Fire with their congregations and followers (Revelation 2:20-23; 19:11-21). The year will be calculated from the translation of Christ’s end-time Bride, while the month and week are found in Leviticus 23:33-44.

In Matthew 24:37-44 the Lord foretold the moral, political and intellectual state of the world in the days of His ‘parousia’ Coming or Presence with His Bride of all Ages following His descent on March 8, 1963 at the close of the Laodicean Church Age (I Thessalonians 4:16; Jude 14; Revelation 8:1; 10:1-4). The world church system is oblivious to the repetition of the conditions and besetting sins of “the days of Noah” (Genesis 6:1-13) and “the days of Lot” (Genesis 18-19; Luke 17:28-30). Christ’s unseen parousia Coming “as a thief” (I Thessalonians 5:4; Revelation 3:3; 16:15) is unknown to their clergy and congregations for “since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation” (II Peter 3:4; Matthew 24:38-44).

Jesus has come, “One of two men working in the field received the revelation of His end-time Message and was caught up in the spirit while his companion remained in unbelief. Two women were grinding at the mill; one was caught up into the revelation while her fellow worker was left in unbelief.” Since 1963 God has been catching up His elect in the simplicity of faith before the unseeing eyes and unhearing ears of unlearned men anticipating a spectacular public show.

The ‘rapture’ is a revelation. As stewards over Christ’s household ministers are ordained to feed them meat in due season—“the present Truth,” what Jesus is doing now(II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7), not denominational traditions or the Word for a day gone by. Verses 45-49 outline the responsibilities of a “faithful and wise” minister who will be rewarded in the Kingdom whereas verses 50-51 declare Christ’s ‘parousia’ will cut off and separate the “evil servant,” appointing him to tribulation with the hypocrites, who, like Esau, “find no place of repentance” (Hebrews 12:17).

Matthew 25:1, Thenin the dispensation of the antitype of the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of Israel’s Pentecostal feast following the typical forty-nine days of the antitypical seven Church Ages (Leviticus 23:15-21) the ‘third pull’ or revelation of the unwritten Seven Thunders will be the sharp two-edged sword of faith that divides wheat from tares and wise from foolish virgins as Jesus expounded the parable of the sower to His disciples.

We live in the silence the space of about half an hour under the Seventh Seal in which Christ has come as Son of Man, King of Kings and Judge to appoint wicked ministers and priests, along with their congregations to tribulation in His final call before the end of the Gentile dispensation “Come out of Babylon and be filled with the Spirit” (Revelation 8:1; 18:4).

Pillar of Cloud, Revelation 10:1-4“He who sows the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world; the good seed are the children of the Kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one. The enemy who sowed them is the Devil; the harvest is the end of the world or consummation of the age; and the reapers are the angels.” Each angel delivered a portion of the sevenfold Spirit of God in W_O_R_D form by the revelation for his Age. However, as signified by the catching up of God’s prophet from Sunset Mountain into the Pillar of Cloud formed by the theophanies of the previous six angels thus completing the constellation of seven stars, the fullness of the Spirit was required to reveal the fullness of the Word. YOU and the saints redeemed by their Messages were gathered with them in theophany (Revelation 5:8-14), because redemption was over before Christ claimed the Book and opened the Seven Seals.

Brother Branham explained, An Angel is coming to bring the separation, the segregation between the right and the wrong. And no one can do that but the Angel of the Lord. He’s the One that’s going to tell which is right and which is wrong. God said He will send His angels at the last times. Not angels down through here, but angels at the last time, and would gather together. We know that this is the coming harvest time now. Now, and angel is actually interpreted a “messenger.” And we see that there is seven angels of the seven Churches, and now . . . No, through the Church Ages.”

“Notice who He said that the sowers were, and also what the seed was. One, the sower was He, the Son of God, Who went forth sowing Seed. And an enemy came behind Him, which was the Devil, and sowed the seed of discrepancy, behind the sowing of the right Seed. Now, friends that has happened through every age since we’ve had a world. Exactly. All the way from the beginning, it started the very same thing.”

“Now, He said, “The Seed of God, the Word of God . . .” Jesus said in a certain place, that the Word is a Seed. And every seed will bring forth of its kind. And now, if the Christian, the children of God, the children of the Kingdom has become the Seed of God, then they must be the Word of God, the Word of God manifested in the Age that they’re living in, for the promised Seed of that Age. God gave His Word at the beginning, and each age has had its Seed, its time, its promises” (The Seed of Discrepancy, p. 5:19-21).

Matthew 13:40-43 takes us to the terminus of Matthew 24:51 and 25:10-13. “As the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so will it be in the end of this world. The Son of man . . . will gather out of His Kingdom all causes of sin and evildoers, and cast them into the fiery furnace: there men will weep and gnash their teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in their Father’s kingdom. He who has ears to hear, let him hear”.

The BreachMatthew 25:1-5 portrays what we call the Bride Age wherein “the kingdom of heaven is likened to ten virgins, who took their own lamps, and went forth to meet the Bridegroom.” Ten signifies the perfection of divine order and is the number of persons required to form a synagogue, and to be present at any office, ceremony, or formal benediction. As on the Day of Atonement ten is the number of closed history; and all seven Church Ages and Christ’s mediation for PART-Word are closed, as illustrated by the Breach between the Church Ages and the Seals. All ten virgins were justified and sanctified. Representing the whole of the Church, they went forth to meet the Bridegroom in the Light of their personal revelation at His second or parousia Coming to reward His faithful ministers and take vengeance on the faithless ministers of Matthew 24:48-51 who did not recognize and teach the mystery of the ‘third pull’ which is the revelation of the “Seven Thunders”.

“Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. For the foolish took their own lamps but took no oil with them indicating they were thoughtless, slothful or dilatory, looking only at appearances: but the wise took oil in vessels along with their lamps. And while the Bridegroom tarried, they all nodded off and fell asleep through the Church Ages”.

“And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the Bridegroom: come out to meet Him (Revelation 18:1-4). Then all those virgins arose [at the “Shout” of the Message, recognized William Branham is the prophet, came out from Rome and her apostate once Protestant daughters (I Thessalonians 4:16; Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:7)], and trimmed their own lamps [of the carbon of denominational guesswork]. Then the foolish said to the wise, Give us of your oil [revelation of the end-time Message by the Holy Spirit]; for our lamps are going out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so lest there will not be enough for us and you: but go to the dealers in the Message, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the Bridegroom came; and those who were ready went in with Him to the Wedding Supper: and the door was shut [as it was in the days of Noah]!” Christians are not waiting for His Coming, but for our going.

The lighted lamp was an outward profession: the foolish virgin had memorised “what the tapes say,” sung “I Love Him” and “Only Believe,” but possessed the “letter” of the Message only without the Spirit. “After the close of the Gentile dispensation the virgins without the Spirit returned, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But He answered and said, Truly I know you not as Wife. Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man will depart with His Bride”.

Christ’s end-time Bride is commissioned to become one with the revelation of the Prophet’s Message then “Prophesy again concerning many nations and tongues and kingdoms” (Revelation 10:8-11), because there are many “sleeping virgins” who have not awakened because they have not been exposed to the “shout” through our testimony. Providing they have not heard the Message they will come before the White Throne Judgment and be granted into eternal Life by the Bride; but if they have heard the Truth they will be condemned.

I was very much moved by the previous Message, What the Tapes Say. This brought to mind Israel, his cousin Moab, King Balak and his hireling prophet Balaam, who shared the same form of worship, but Moab was bastard-born and not called of God. Today we see the Uniting Church, Pentecostals, Baptists and independents all trying to get Oil. Our denominational cousins are good people, but Scripture says they will not receive the Holy Spirit because they are not in the star Light and trying to trim their lamps by impersonating the Word for a day gone by.

I John 2:19, “They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us” (II Timothy 3:9).

Their objective is the outward display of works wherewith they will receive the approval of men because they speak with unknown tongues or fast, whereas their desire prayer should be the unseen finished work of faith that illumines the lamp within their heart. Without the Seal of God one has the mark of the beast. The two spirits are so close together the non-elect cannot distinguish the difference. The foolish virgin sit under the anointed ministry long enough to receive part of the revelation intellectually but not long enough to hear and receive all of it by faith. Whereas Eve was deceived, her husband Adam typed Christ and knew precisely the course he was taking.

When Christ returned in the office Son of Man on about March 8, 1963 His ministry was mainly to the lost. The people sure want Oil today, but they will not let go of the world. They want to be man-pleasers, maintaining worldly pursuits, friends and pastimes, but living with one foot in the world and one foot in the world is not the mark of a Christian.

God’s Word requires a total separation from unbelief, taking the road of the Lord’s despised few as Abraham separated from Lot, Israel separated from Egypt, and the saints separated from the world church system in every dispensation. nl953.htm

“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’s good to have you with us for divine fellowship.

Christianity has circled the globe from Jerusalem and Damascus where the saints were first called “Christians.” Today it is back in Syria as “apostates who say they are Christians, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” These soldiers are anti-Christians led by the rider on the pale riding from Washington to perdition.

The seven heads and ten horns of the beast which carried the Judaeo-Roman Universal church for two thousand years will resolve themselves into separate histories as a church and ten states when the EU breaks up. Right now they are reuniting with their head, like her (once) Protestant daughters, to revive the Holy Roman Empire. “All whose names are not written on the Book of Life from the foundation of the world will wonder at this miracle when Satan is cast down to earth and they see the Roman Empire which was, and is not, and yet is” (Revelation 13:3; 17:8).

Rome must strike while the EU exists otherwise she will lose all chance of ruling the world. She will reinforce her position by refinancing the USD and uniting the Protestant churches with the US State to form an image unto the beast (Revelation 13:11-18). After midst of the Week the ten horns will hate the whore and side with the Judaeo-Communist Talmudic power of the Jewish banksters, destroying Vatican City State and the USA.

Washington’s Imperial Project in Syria Faces Defeat. Obama’s Criminal Legacy

Two-faced Obama

December 6, 2016 — Obama will be remembered for waging endless wars of aggression throughout his tenure, at home and abroad—a war criminal remaining unaccountable for his high crimes, a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, one of many examples mocking its legitimacy. He’ll leave office in January after bombing seven countries, multiple conflicts on his watch still raging, including nearly six years of terror-war on Syria, a nation threatening no one. According to Syria’s War Information Center, around 65% of eastern Aleppo was liberated from terrorist control, additional neighborhoods freed daily. US-backed terrorists are increasingly isolated, heading toward capitulation or elimination, their choice . . .

On December 4, Reuters reported internecine fighting among terrorists in eastern Aleppo “in the face of an unprecedented onslaught by Russian-backed government forces . . . helping to put (Assad) on the verge of (his) biggest victory yet”—liberating Aleppo entirely, retaking it after four years under US-backed terrorists’ control . . . headquartered in Washington, heading NATO’s killing machine, waging global war on humanity.

The Coming War on China. Nuclear War is No Longer a Shadow

Kings of the East

December 3, 2016 — I have spent two years making a documentary film, The Coming War on China, in which the evidence and witnesses warn that nuclear war is no longer a shadow, but a contingency. The greatest build-up of American-led military forces since the Second World War is well under way. They are in the northern hemisphere, on the western borders of Russia, and in Asia and the Pacific, confronting China.

The great danger this beckons is not news, or it is buried and distorted: a drumbeat of mainstream fake news that echoes the psychopathic fear embedded in public consciousness during much of the 20th century. Like the renewal of post-Soviet Russia, the rise of China as an economic power is declared an “existential threat” to the divine right of the United States to rule and dominate human affairs.

To counter this, in 2011 President Obama announced a “pivot to Asia”, which meant that almost two-thirds of US naval forces would be transferred to Asia and the Pacific by 2020. Today, more than 400 American military bases encircle China with missiles, bombers, warships and, above all, nuclear weapons. From Australia north through the Pacific to Japan, Korea and across Eurasia to Afghanistan and India, the bases form, says one US strategist, “the perfect noose” . . .

In 2015, the Pentagon released its Law of War Manual . . . “and thus nuclear weapons are lawful weapons for the United States.” In China, a strategist told me, “We are not your enemy, but if you [in the West] decide we are, we must prepare without delay” . . . “for the first time China is discussing putting its nuclear missiles on high alert” . . . the US staged its biggest single military exercise since the Cold War . . . an armada of ships and long-range bombers rehearsed an “Air-Sea Battle Concept for China” . . . blocking sea lanes in the Straits of Malacca and cutting off China’s access to oil, gas and other raw materials from the Middle East and Africa . . . provocation, and the fear of a US Navy blockade, that has seen China feverishly building strategic airstrips on disputed reefs and islets in the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea . . .

In October, Richard Marles, the defence spokesman of the main Australian opposition party, the Labor Party, demanded that “operational decisions” in provocative acts against China be left to military commanders in the South China Sea. In other words, a decision that could mean war with a nuclear power should not be taken by an elected leader or a parliament but by an admiral or a general. This is the Pentagon line, a historic departure for any state calling itself a democracy . . . Full story: newint.org

Comment: RT Documentaries will broadcast The Coming War on China worldwide on December 9, 10 & 11. The Australian release will be early 2017 on SBS Television.


Dismal Jobs Report

December 7, 2016 — Democracies are afflicted with false news, because false news is the way the ruling oligarchy controls the explanations given to the public. The public must be kept in the dark about their exploitation by the oligarchy, or they might revolt against the handful that rules them.

The oligarchy learned this during the Great Depression when the public, aware that they were being ruined by the rich, were approaching a state of rebellion. In his history, The Crisis of the Old Order, historian Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., reports the many warnings from seasoned politicians that something must be done to relieve the hardships or revolution was on the horizon.

FDR, a rich aristocrat [from the opium trade], saved the oligarchs with rhetoric and a few public spending programs that appeared helpful until he could get America into World War II. The war scooped up the unemployed youth and put them into the military, and put the rest of the unemployed to work producing guns, ammunition, tanks, airplanes, and naval vessels. War rescued the oligarchs.

Today the situation is worse than Roosevelt faced. In FDR’s time, the factories were shuttered, but they were still there. Today America’s factories are gone, moved to China and other areas of Asia. The supply chains are closed down. The skilled workforce is dying off. Essentially, Wall Street and the global capitalists have de-industrialized America. They have destroyed the ladders of upward mobility that made the United States an “opportunity society.” It remains to be seen if Trump, even if so inclined, can do anything about the economy that globalism destroyed . . .

Why Big Mining loves Big Green

December 8, 2016 — War on coal, oil and gas . . . why is Big Mining not fighting back? . . . Wind and solar power are indeed “free”, but to extract electricity from them is not free . . . Before one watt of green electricity is generated . . . green power has boosted demand for most products of Big Mining.

Green power also needs back-up power ready to swing into action immediately the wind drops or clouds obscure the sun. This is great news for reliable energy suppliers capable of rapid backup . . . So Big Gas loves Big Green . . . Uranium producers love the greens. They know that if coal and gas are banned from power generation, and all hydro-power sites are “world-heritage protected”, all that is left to stabilise the electricity grids of modern society is nuclear power.

So Big Mining can extract benefits from green energy while earning PC credits . . . On the debit side are the usual victims—taxpayers and consumers of coal, oil, gas, electricity and metals; and employees and shareholders of industries being forced to close or emigrate . . .

Michigan lets Autonomous Cars on Roads without Human Driver

December 11, 2016 — Companies can now test self-driving cars on Michigan public roads without a driver or steering wheel under new laws that could push the state to the forefront of autonomous vehicle development.

The package of bills signed into law Friday comes with few specific state regulations and leaves many decisions up to automakers and companies like Google and Uber. It also allows automakers and tech companies to run autonomous taxi services and permits test parades of self-driving tractor-trailers as long as humans are in each truck. And they allow the sale of self-driving vehicles to the public once they are tested and certified . . . Full story: hosted.ap.org

Boys' Life magazineComment: “One Sunday morning in June, 1933 the Lord Jesus spoke to Brother Branham and said that the Coming of the Lord was drawing nigh, but before He came, seven major events would transpire . . . the fourth vision showed the great advances in science that would come after the second world war. It was headed up in the vision of a plastic bubble-topped car that was running down beautiful highways under remote control so that people appeared seated in this car without a steering wheel and they were playing some sort of a game to amuse themselves . . . The plastic bubble car has been built and is awaiting only a better network of roads” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 321:5, 322:5).

Advances in science mean existing roads are suitable. We have driverless Komatsu and Caterpillar trucks the size of two storey buildings carting ore and coal on unmade roads. So five of the seven visions are fulfilled; the sixth and seventh visions will be fulfilled in Daniel’s Seventieth Week, after the going home of the Church.


Status of Investigation of N. Arizona Stratospheric Cloud of February 28, 1963

May 31, 1963 — A. Height. The survey work and the interviews in and around Flagstaff have revealed that the southern tip of the cloud lay about ten miles north of Flagstaff at about 1840 MST. (Mountain Standard Time) This implies that the range of the cloud from Tucson was greater than the initially assumed 190 miles. Using the revised range plus the angles of elevation previously computed from the four photos taken in Tucson gives an altitude of 43 km, which equals about 140,000 ft. or almost 27 miles.

Science Magazine, 19 April, 1963[Now, this is important because the vision was very precise, showing Brother Branham that was forty miles north of Tucson in the vision and He saw the cloud moving from the west toward the east. As the crow flies He was forty miles NNE of Tucson on March 8 picking sand burrs from his trouser legs when there was a blast (Revelation 6:1) and he was caught up into the Cloud on Sunset Mountain in the Coronado Forest. The Cloud moved eastward toward Jeffersonville where the Lord told him he must return to receive the revelation of the Seven Seals. Only Brother Branham saw this Cloud; it was not a public show but for the people of faith (Revelation 10:1-4).

When the Cloud appeared on February 28 moved Prescott and Flagstaff, NW and NNW 200 miles from Tucson as the crow flies then east towards New Mexico. This public sighting in satisfaction of Psalm 19:1 was unknown to the Prophet until about May 26, 1963 – AGS].

This revised altitude takes the cloud still further above the height-interval of even Arctic nacreous clouds, and puts it disconcertingly near the base of an “exclusion region” of the mesosphere in which the temperatures are so high (due to ozone absorption of solar ultraviolet radiation) that the saturation vapour pressure of water (or ice) exceeds the total ambient air pressure. In that exclusion region (typically from about 42 km to about 65 km), no water drops or ice particles can exist. Water can be present there only in vapour form. The indicated altitude of the Flagstaff cloud is slightly above the mean base of this exclusion layer, adding further interest to the entire phenomenon.

B. Motion. Although precise photo-grammetry has not been worked out to yield final motion estimates, preliminary analysis of the McSpadden photos from Lordsburg indicate an eastward cloud drift speed of 95 mph for the upper limit, and 77 mph for the lower limit, the uncertainty being due to the unfortunate fact that, on the very first shot of this series, the time was uncertain to two minutes. An estimate of angular velocity of the cloud over Flagstaff has been made by Robert A. Schley (using subsequently-checked times of two long-distance phone calls to obtain very close time-checks on his observations, made between the calls). His angular velocity, along with the present height estimate, gives an apparent speed of 110 mph.

Life Magazine, May 17, 1963There have been only a few reports of early sightings of the cloud (or one like it); but these have not fitted into any consistent pattern. The motion remains a rather uncertain feature, all in all. As will be seen below, this is unfortunate, for the cloud’s motion enters critically into a test of one hypothesis as to its origin. It is hoped that the ultimate photogrammetric analysis will shed further light on this point.

C. Some distant sightings. Queries have been sent out to about twenty-five small town papers in Arizona and surrounding states, and an A. P. wire story has gone much farther, asking for observational details. No sightings seem to have been made in California or Nevada, but some distant observations were reported from localities to the east. Evidently many saw it in central New Mexico, reports coming from Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Alamogordo, Truth and Consequences, and Las Cruces. It was reliably reported by a 10 woman in Center, Colorado. But the most distant sighting reliably checked was made in Juarez, Mexico, by J. H. Buels, of El Paso, Texas. Mr. Buel’s location was approximately 380 miles from the cloud! . . .

The Heroin Epidemic and the News

December 1, 2016 — When you discover something that seems to you to be important but then you notice that the people who tell us what is supposed to be news are ignoring it, you know that it must be really important. I can cite a number of examples just from my own web site. Most recently we had the almost total press blackout of the justice system wrist slap of the man most responsible for the flood of illegal aliens into the country. It figures that they would black out the news of the piddling punishment that the man, Stan Eury, received, because they had blacked out his prosecution, and most of what they had reported on his operations previously had, amazingly enough, been favourable.

Before that we had their total failure to report in 2004 that the long suppressed report on the suspicious 1949 death of Secretary of Defense James Forrestal had at long last been made public. The press silence was extremely telling. They couldn’t report it because it was full of information that contradicted what they had unanimously told us for 55 years, that is, that Forrestal, the leading opponent in the US government of recognition of the new state of Israel, had killed himself.

Before that, in 1997, the press had completely blacked out the news that Kenneth Starr’s report on the death of deputy White House counsel Vincent W. Foster, Jr., contained, by judges’ order, 20 pages that thoroughly undermined the conclusion that Foster had committed suicide. In Part 3 of my “America’s Dreyfus Affair, the Case of the Death of Vincent Foster,” I called it “The Great Suppression of ’97.”

These stories are plainly of enormous importance, and the fact that they are completely ignored by the American news media magnifies their importance. So too is the story of the heroin-death epidemic that is currently ravaging the country. In this case the news hasn’t been ignored completely, but it has been spun in such a way that one would hardly realize its magnitude. In the first place, only the lesser news organs dare suggest that the sharply rising death rate in the country from drug overdoses might be coming from widely available cheap heroin. Heroin’s Death Toll Reaches Another Gruesome Landmark,” a headline that appeared above an October 16, 2016, article in the leftist Mother Jones magazine is one that you will never see in The Washington Post, The New York Times, or one of their many clones around the country. The article’s subtitle was even more disturbing: “Most states now lose more citizens to overdoses than to car accidents” . . . Full story: dcdave.com


First Written Mention of Jesus? 2,000-Year-Old Lead Tablets found

November 30, 2016 — The lead pages, bound like a ring binder, were first discovered in 2008 The tablets . . . proved to be around 2,000 years old . . . held together like a ring binder, were found in Jordan in around 2008 by an Jordanian Bedouin and make reference to Christ and his disciples . . .

The artefacts were found in a remote part of Jordan to which Christian refugees are known to have fled after the fall of Jerusalem in 70AD . . . testing suggests that the artefacts are indeed 2,000 years old . . . The codex was leant to the Elkingtons by the Department of Antiquities in Amman for testing. Full story: dailymail.co.uk


What the Tapes Say

Amos 5:18-20, “Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! What good will the Day of the Lord be to you? It is darkness and not light—as if a man fled from a lion, and a bear met him, or went into the house and leaned with his hand against the wall only to have a serpent bite him. The Day of the Lord is darkness and not light, and gloom with no gleam in it?”

Amos was prophesying against those who fancied that carnal Israel and the true people of God were identical. But the Day of the Lord for which they long can only bring them harm (Isaiah 13:6-16; Joel 2:2; Zechariah 13:8-9; 14:2; Revelation 11:2; 16:19). The modern Israel state “has sown the wind, and will reap the whirlwind: the standing stalk has husk but no grain; and were it to yield, aliens would swallow it up” (Hosea 8:7). Modern Israel will be utterly defeated followed by the mass exodus of non-Semitic anti-Semitic Israeli self-styled Jews enabling the descendants of Jacob to return to the land of their Covenant for redemption. The United States and denominational churches are trading on past reputations but bearing their antitheses; after America is defeated it will unite with the apostate once Protestant Churches to form an image to the Judaeo-Roman beast as Jesus prophesied in Revelation 13:11-18.

Many Message believers have misplaced confidence in ‘what the tapes say’ without “proving all things” in the Absolute of God’s Holy Bible. They are deceived with false hopes and would be foolish to expect deliverance in power and glory on the Day of the Lord because all Message believers are not equal. Even in the circle of this Message there are three kinds of believer, and all but the wise virgins will be cast into outer darkness, not Light; calamity and not joy. Should they escape one danger they would surely fall into another as affirmed in verse 19. Once more the threatening character of the Day of the Lord is affirmed and repeated in verse 20. In the tribulation “justice will descend like waters and righteousness like an ever flowing stream”.

II Corinthians 3:6, “God has made us able ministers of the Message; not of the letter of ‘what the tapes say,’ but of the Spirit declaring what they mean: for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives eternal Life.” Thus it is unwise to take the “letter” of any vindicated prophet of God, even Jesus Christ, without proving what the Spirit means against two or three witnesses of the Scripture. Herein the folly of two billion nominal Christians is manifest by their unscriptural baptism in three Titles.

I Corinthians 14:26-28, “Let all things be done unto edifying. If any man speaks in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, each in his turn; and let one interpret. But if there is no interpreter, let each of them keep silence in the church and speak to himself and to God.” When I travel I see transcripts of Brother Branham’s Message printed in the local tongue, but this is not the apostolic way. It might as well be an unknown tongue such as English because there is no interpreter: they have the “letter” in their own tongue but without the Spirit.” This is a waste of time, effort and money. God’s way is for the five fold ministry to apply the Message to the Bible to unlock its mysteries and preach or publish the revelation from the Bible in the local tongue.

We don’t read the Bible or the Message like a newspaper. We prospect for nuggets of faith on a subject, a sentence from one Message, a paragraph from another, cross-referencing from 1,200 Messages to the Bible from Genesis to Revelation from which we deliver our Message. This was always the means of passing Life through the Body.

“It is the Spirit that quickens [the Word]; the flesh [books, learning and reasoning] profit nothing: the Words that I speak to you, they are Spirit, and they are eternal Life” (John 6:63; Matthew 16:17). “In the mouth of two or three witnesses let every word be established” (Matthew 18:16).

There must be an Absolute: in responding to questions on the Seven Seals the Prophet said, “I’m going to have to answer for this. That’s right. We’re too close for anything, any foolishness, or any presuming, or halfway believe. I’ve got to see it first. And then when I see it, it’s got to be in the Word too. And so far, by the grace of God, they perfectly . . . I’ve took it from all the way through; you know that; it’s just blended right together.”

“It’s got to be, THUS SAITH THE LORD, ’cause it’s not only as to say it from me knowing it myself, but the Word of the Lord is THUS SAITH THE LORD. And here is the Word taking what He has give to me and blending it together and showing you, so you know yourself it’s THUS SAITH THE LORD. See?” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 446:5 – 447:1).

Our Absolute is the written Word of God from Genesis to Revelation (Isaiah 8:20; Acts 17:11; Romans 3:4; Ephesians 4:5; I Thessalonians 5:21; Revelation 22:18-19). You, me and every Christian must know that we know that we know. Ministers in particular must be able to speak to people with the Holy Bible open and prove our revelation from within those pages without reference to Brother Branham: just the simplicity of God’s Word.

How can a minister go out into the world, the church world, to open eyes if he has to carry a stack of Spoken Word Books to do so? Any denominational believer might interrupt him and say, The understanding you have—say Serpent’s seed—is not in the Bible. This sincere man is resting on a lifetime of Bible study; he may be a minister. Whoever he is he deserves that answer from you and your Bible (I Peter 3:15), not a Book of Mormon, quotations from Mrs. White and the Jehovah Witnesses’ Bible, or Brother Branham’s Message. We stand or fall on the unchanging Word of God’s Holy Bible.

The Prophet said, “Many times people hear from tapes, and they say, “Well, I disagree with that. He just don’t know his teaching, doesn’t know the Scripture.” Well, that may be all true. See, I wouldn’t say that isn’t true, but to me, I study it, not taking any words . . . I read what other men has to say and appreciate them. And everything that anyone says, I appreciate it. But then I take it to God, and I stay with it until I can explain it from Genesis to Revelation, and then see it all hook up in the Bible, and then I know it’s somewhere near right. And ‘course, where you’re right, that’s just one place that I got off of the line at. And maybe where you’re wrong or right, that’s where I got off the line, and vice versa”  (The Seventieth Week of Daniel, p. 77:5a).

“But I only work by revelation; the revelation has to be the Word. If it isn’t according to the Word, then it’s a wrong revelation” (Balm in Gilead #61-0218).

“Now, we want to read a text tonight, or read a Scripture reading out of the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. And I believe that this is the Revelation of Jesus Christ as written in the Book. And any other revelation that would be contrary to this revelation would be wrong. I believe that would bear quoting again. Any revelation that will not fit in with this revelation and bring this revelation to Light is the wrong revelation; it must be Scriptural” (Sirs, Is This The Time, p. 6:2).

“And that’s what’s the matter in the Christian faith today; we’ve got too many traffic jams, everybody making their own absolute, when we’ve got one Absolute and that’s the Word of the living God that settles it forever, no matter what anyone else says. It’s almost gotten to a place like it was in the days of Judges. Everybody has their own absolute, but it all fails, like the Pharaohs and so forth. But God’s absolute is His Word. He gives it, and “heavens and earth will pass away, but It shall never pass away [or change].” I like that” (A Absolute #64-0304; Matthew 24:36; Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8).

“Now, why can’t people believe the simple simplicity of a humble bunch of people (see) and the Voice of the signs of God? Why can’t they believe it? Just like it always been. The true Word of God being made manifest. They’re too smart and too educated to believe the simple form of the written Word. They want to put their own interpretation to it. “It don’t mean this. It don’t mean that.” See? It does mean that”.

“Listen. May I say this right quick now? Even the visions that God gives here at the place, it’s so misunderstood. That’s the reason you hear me on the tapes say, “Say what the tapes say. Say what the visions say” (God in Simplicity, p. 59:6-7).

Notice, Brother Branham distinguished MEANING from SAYING. It does not matter what Jesus, Brother Branham, Paul or any of God’s prophets have SAID. There is no Life in the letter without the Spirit, and everybody who hears or reads what these prophets have SAID ultimately ends up with a MEANING. In a certain country I found hundreds of Message churches believing many more MEANINGS (or understandings) of what the Prophet SAID. So when he said “Say what the tapes say. Say what the visions say,” this was not what he meant. Look in your Bible where Jesus or Paul or Isaiah or Jeremiah quote a previous prophet, they either quote what he SAID then say what he MEANT or they modify what he SAID to show what he MEANS in context of “the present Truth.” I seldom quote Scripture verbatim but endeavour to draw out the MEANING. What use is the written or spoken Word if we lack “the common faith” by the Holy Spirit which is the mind of Christ? Matthew 28:19, Luke 24:47 and Acts 2:38-39 each differ in what they SAY but agree in a common MEANING.

In the world church system there are scores of thousands of denominations, with more understandings of THUS SAITH THE LORD, and like Caiaphas, the Scribes, Pharisees, Sadducees and theologians who crucified the Lord of glory these are all in error.

This confusion persists in the mainstream of the Message because ministers have great confidence in discerning what is THUS SAITH THE LORD without reference to the Absolute of God’s unchanging Word from Genesis to Revelation yet we have three witnesses that agree in one: the Zodiac or “Witness of the Stars,” “The Bible in Stone” or Great Pyramid, and the Bible printed in your own language. Thousands of Message believers—all “Saying what the tapes say,” proved the late Brother Joseph Coleman’s unscriptural seven thunders hypothesis. Other believers resolved that William Branham is Jesus Christ; his daughter Sarah was baptized in her father’s name. Others “saying what the tapes say,” teach that the prophet must resurrect and resume his ministry. One group purchased a marquee and a semi-trailer to transport it while another group purchased an old airliner and had a pilot on standby to fly around the world and pick up those who would be in the ‘rapture’—as if the Creator needed human help. Others take the quotes to demonstrate THUS SAITH THE LORD Daniel’s Seventieth Week is three and a half years when it is seven. Other experienced ministers believe Two Souls, or replacement rather than redemption of souls. Two ministers skipped Daniel’s Seventieth Week, Armageddon, the millennium, general resurrection and white throne judgment and see us in the Eighth Day, which is eternity. Others think we are all physical Serpent’s seed, while others believe there is now no physical Serpent’s seed . . . based on the quotes of God’s vindicated prophet, of course. Most believe Jews are Israelites—blood brothers—God’s Chosen people, and that they have already returned to the Promised Land when the Bible tells us they will not return until the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week. Many Message believers imagine Israel’s two witnesses will be preach Brother Branham’s Message in the Seventieth Week and that they will be the original Moses and Elijah who although they are glorified must somehow be martyred. Some believe the Seventh Seal is not yet revealed; others, that the Absolute is William Branham’s Message while some ministers do not preach but listen to “what the tapes say.” God is not the Author of this confusion based on “what the tapes say” according to human reasoning without “proving all things” by the Absolute of God’s written Word, the Holy Bible.

When the Church Ages, redemption and Christ’s Mediation were fulfilled in 1963, many in the circle of this Message would not endure sound doctrine and gathered around teachers who tickled their ears by “saying what the tapes say” but turned from the Absolute of God’s written Word and what the prophet meant unto fables. When men preach a montage of Message quotes they invariably end up preaching “another gospel which is not another” (II Corinthians 11:4; Galatians 1:6-9). The end-time Message is the Key that unlocks the hidden mysteries of the written Word, it is not the Key that unlocks and expounds the Spoken Word, causing it to supersede and replace the written Word.

We must take the spoken Word to the written Word to ensure we have the mind of the Spirit when He spoke through His Prophet and then teach and preach that revelation from God’s Holy Bible. We are living in the time Brother Branham called “the investigation judgment” or “temporary judgment” for the Seventh Vial; our last opportunity to ensure we are faithful to our Husband and Lord.

Jesus told Peter, “Flesh and blood [books, learning] have not revealed this to you but My Father who is in heaven . . . and on this rock [of revelation] I will build My Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against faith. And what you speak by faith God will do.” This is your ‘third pull’ based on THUS SAITH THE LORD, not the guesswork of human reasoning.

“Familiarity breeds contempt” yet many in the circle of this Message take faith for granted, but because we now have the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication Christ is no longer a mediator “winking” at ignorance. “We must study to make our calling and election sure,” proving all things. The wise and foolish virgin both believe the Message but the foolish lack its revelation, probably because they are slothful or dilatory.

As Brother Branham spoke in colloquial English he generally said “Jew” when meant Israelite. What percentage of Message believers realize that this modern word did not appear in any Bible in any language prior to the latter half of the eighteenth century? Or that its meaning is contrary to the two different words it has replaced? And that the majority of so-called Jews are non-Semitic impostors with no history in the Middle East? The lie is so close to the Truth “that if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Matthew 24:24; Genesis 3:1-15; II Corinthians 11:3; II Thessalonians 2:10-12; Revelation 2:9; 3:9). Without understanding what the record of history and the Scriptures “say” you will not understand what Brother Branham meant.

In the Seventh Seal he said, “All the Father hath (past tense) given Me, they’ll come. They’ll come to Me” [John 6:37]. Oh, my, I love that. Yes, sir. Notice, the believers does believe it. The unbelievers can’t believe it. So now, if anybody wants to argue about the Serpent’s seed and things [such as the true oneness of the godhead and Scriptural water baptism] and you try to show them, they won’t listen to it, just walk away. Leave them alone. See, God don’t argue, neither does His children. See, see?”

“Notice, God’s one hundred and forty-four thousand elected Jews Israelites don’t bow to the beast, his denominationalism, statues, or anything. Though their nation is in a covenant with it at the time, Israel is in a covenant [Isaiah 28:18; Daniel 8:13; 9:27; Revelation 11:2-7], but here’s a hundred and forty-four thousand that’s not going to do it. That’s the elected”.

“Same thing it is right here in the Gentile church now. It’s an elected group. You can’t pull them in that kind of stuff. They won’t believe it. No, sir. The Light once struck them, that settles it right then. They see it happen, and then see it vindicated and proved, and like that, and they look down here in the Bible and see that Word” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 548:1-3).

Notice “the tape said Jews,” however there will be no “Jew” in the 144,000 as defined by this modern word but there will be 12,000 “Judahites” and 12,000 descendants of pure blood of Jacob from each of the other tribes: some will be “Judeans” and all will be Israelites living in the Land of the Covenant. The 1611 translation of the Bible Authorised by King James did not contain the word “Jew” which was inserted in the 1769 revision. Remember, “The things that the preacher is liable to teach yer, ain’t necessarily so,” which is why Paul and Brother Branham admonished us to follow the example of those noble Bereans who “received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so” (Acts 17:11).

When asked the question, “Who is Israel? – Who is a Jew?” the Israeli Government’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) answered thus: “The term Israelite is purely Biblical. An Israeli is a citizen of Israel, regardless of religion. A Jew is a person anywhere in the world born to a Jewish mother, or converted to Judaism, who is thus identified as a member of the Jewish people and religion.”

Notice here that the Jews themselves clearly imply that the term “Israelite” and “Jew” are separate and distinct and where Jews have no relation whatsoever with the Biblical Noahic bloodline. Also note the use of subterfuge admonished by the Talmud, Baba Kama 113a, note 34. “‘Where a suit arises between an Israelite and a heathen, if you can justify the former according to the laws of Israel, justify him and say: ‘This is our law’; so also if you can justify him by the laws of the heathens justify him and say [to the other party:] ‘This is your law’; but if this cannot be done, we use subterfuges to circumvent him 34.” The learned elders are of course aware they are neither Hebrews, nor Israelites, or even Semites, and as they devised the subterfuge of the modern word “Jew,” they have devised the new word “Israeli” knowing this will go over the heads of us Goyim who never study our Bibles, history, or our prophets.

In fact, under the heading “A Brief History of the Terms for Jew,” in the 1980 Jewish Almanac, on page 3 we find the following incredible admission:

“Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an Ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew.” Today, to trace anyone’s descent to ancient Palestine would be a genealogical impossibility. The Jewish racial myth flows from the fact that the words ‘Hebrew,’ ‘Israelite,’ ‘Jew,’ ‘Judaism,’ and the ‘Jewish people’ have been used synonymously to suggest a historic continuity, but this is a gross misuse. The descriptive name Judaism was never heard by the Hebrews or Israelites; it appears only within modern Christianity. The English abbreviation, ‘Jew,’ is recent and does not correspond to anything denoted by the Aramaic, Greek or Roman terms for ‘Judahite’ or ‘Judean,’ which were in use during the lifetime of Jesus. In fact, according to Reporting Guidelines for the Australian Press Council, General Press Release No. 49 (issued June 1982) with reference to the word “Race” as applied to Jews. “The Press Council wishes to alert editors to a common mistake. There is no “Jewish race”. Judaism is not a race but a religion. There are Caucasian Jews, Mongolian Jews, Oriental Jews, Semitic Jews and so on—terms defining both racial origin and religion. The Council asks all editors and sub-editors to watch for this error . . .”

During Christ’s lifetime, no persons were described as “Jews” anywhere. This very important FACT is supported by sound theology, suppressed historical truth and science. When Jesus was in Judea, it was not the “homeland” of the ancestors of those who today style themselves as “Jews.” Their ancestors never set-foot anywhere near Judea. They existed at that time in Asia, their true “homeland”, and were known as Chazars, or Turkish Mongols. Banned author Douglas Reed, in his superbly researched classic, “Controversy of Zion,” writes: “No authority, Judaist or other, would support the claim to blood decent from Judah for the so-called Jews of today.” In fact, the Palestinians would have more claim to the racial description, ‘Semite,’ than any within modern Jewry who are of Eastern-European stock and trace their lineage back to the ancient Asiatic kingdom of the Chazar”.

In his book “What Price Israel,” Alfred M. Lilienthal wrote: “Here’s a paradox, a paradox, a most ingenious paradox: and anthropological fact, many Christians may have much more Hebrew-Israelite blood in their veins than most of their Jewish neighbours.” We must each possess Bible faith; eternal Life will not be found in “Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth” (Titus 1:14).

Pillar of Cloud, February 28, 1963Do you realize this Pillar of Cloud (pictured right) appeared to the public over Flagstaff on February 28, 1963 to fulfil Psalm 19:1 (click image to enlarge)? It manifest a second time over Mount Sunset on about March 8, 1963, seen only by the seventh angel, Brother Branham, who was caught up to complete a constellation of the redeemed (Revelation 5:8-14) with the theophanies of the previous six Angels forming the Cloud in fulfilment of Revelation 10:1-4 as explained in Newsletter 752. Unless you see this revelation you will not understand there were two events, dates and places. Brother Branham’s visions and the spiritual dreams of particular individuals pertained to the manifestation on March 8 when Christ opened the Seven Seals for us believers, not to the public display on February 28 although it was the same Pillar of Cloud.

Faith is a clear understanding of God’s unchanging Word;, it is the mind of Christ in us. Without the Rock of revelation from Above we are without “the keys to the kingdom of heaven” or new birth, so you will appreciate that the “letter” only of what Moses, Jesus Christ, Paul and William Branham’s tapes “say” is not enlightening prophecy but “as noisy brass or a tinkling cymbal” that can condemn us to hell fire unless we understand and live what the Holy Spirit means. Without faith our hope is built on sand (Matthew 16:13-19; I Corinthians 3:10-15).

Permit me to illustrate how “saying what the tapes say” can shake not only your conscience but without the “Spirit” to reveal what they mean, might one day shake your confidence in the Message, the Prophet, and God Himself.

The third holocaust or extermination (of six million Jews claimed in just the 20th century) was not announced until the Eichmann Trial in 1961. The Yiddish-speaking crypto Jew Adolf Eichmann was abducted from Argentina by Israeli agents in May, 1960, sentenced to death by an Israeli court in December, 1961, and hanged in 1962.

So much emphasis is placed on select Jewish participation in Martin Bormann companies that when Adolf Eichmann was seized and taken to Tel Aviv to stand trial, it produced a shock wave in the Jewish and German communities of Buenos Aires. Jewish leaders informed the Israeli authorities in no uncertain terms that this must never happen again because a repetition would permanently rupture relations with the Germans of Latin America, as well as with the Bormann organization, and cut off the flow of Jewish money to Israel. It never happened again, and the pursuit of Bormann quieted down at the request of these Jewish leaders. He is residing in an Argentinean safe haven, protected by the most efficient German infrastructure in history as well as by all those whose prosperity depends on his well-being.

CO poisoned corpseWhen WWII ended, it was announced that Jews had been gassed in all concentration camps. (Old newsreels attesting to this appear in the “David Cole at Auschwitz” video.) However, American doctors made forensic examinations and found that all had died of either disease, (mainly typhus), cold, starvation, etc. Not a single corpse had been gassed. [In most cases cyanide poisoning causes Livor mortis, a deceptively healthy pink to red skin colour; severe permeation can produce systemic toxicity]. The story was then changed so that all of the mass exterminations by gassing took place at five concentration camps in Soviet occupied Poland. However, the Communists refused to allow any neutral experts into the camps to examine the claim. Poor defeated Germany was permitted no opportunity to defend itself against such a monstrous charge as exterminating six million Jews!

To my knowledge Brother Branham’s first mention of the holocaust (so-called) was in his Message Uncertain Sound in Bloomington, Illinois (61-0415e), and “this is what the tape says”:

“And this man that’s on trial, this German now—smart, intelligent, intellectual giant . . . And take this Eichmann, that’s froze them people to death, then throwed hot water on them, and killed the millions and . . . When I was in Germany, there in those places where they took them out there and give them that bubble in their veins (Hitler), and sent them out there . . . And smart, educated, scientists, way beyond . . . Why, we was . . . Half the war was over before we ever had a gun that could compare with their 88. What about you soldiers that faced it? You know that’s right. Why we . . . They were so far ahead of us in science, and smart, and everything like that—and would turn and do a thing like that, it’s insanity.”

It is high time that believers in the circle of this Message understood there were no ‘execution gas chambers’ at Auschwitz or in any German internment camp anywhere. The guilty are projecting their psychosis upon the innocent. There was no holocaust of six million Jews as claimed in World War I; Jewish ruled USSR did not exterminate six million Jews between the wars as claimed, and the so-called holocaust of six million Jews in World War II is a BIG LIE. The International Red Cross audit to January 16, 1984 found 282,077 registered deaths of all internees in ALL German Concentration Camps from ALL causes (3 copies of documents were registered for deaths from natural causes, 23 copies of documents were required for deaths from other causes).

According to Aleksdandr Solzhenitsyn the extermination of six million Jews by Judaeo-Communist Russia between the wars was the real genocide of 66 million Christians by Jewish-ruled USSR which continued from 1918 to at least 1957. As an article from Veterans Today, and the documentary video Hellstormattest, the atrocities of World War II were NOT committed by Germany but the Jewish-controlled Allies, Britain and France, but primarily the USSR and the USA. For example, three Jewish traitors—Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin made a secret agreement at Yalta to repatriate numerous Red Army soldiers and their families to the USSR and martyrdom. They had defected in hopes of joining General Andrey Vlasov’s army in a coup against the murderous Jewish tyrant Stalin. Using trickery and force, British, American, and French MPs rounded up men, women, and children to help Stalin continue his genocide of the Russian people.

We must “prove all things” as commanded by Jesus, Paul and William Branham (I Thessalonians 5:21), including what they taught so that we don’t parrot their words but understand what the Spirit means. Here is the history of the mythical holocausts of six million Jews dating from the nineteenth century! This BIG LIE is perpetuated as cover for Allied atrocities, the extortion racket Professor Norman Finkelstein calls “The Holocaust Industry,” and to justify the theft of the Land of the Covenant by non-Semitic impersonators of the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Israel and Semitic Palestinians.

God’s actions of purpose for His glory and the good of His elect are an enigma to the natural man. He commanded Abraham to sacrifice his only son, a type of God sending His Son bearing His cross to Calvary. He sent Jonah to Nineveh with a Message of repentance: Jonah ran away, yet he disembarked from the mouth of their pagan god, establishing the sign of Christ’s resurrection, and the Ninevites repented. Jesus’ most trusted disciple Judas Iscariot sold Him to Jewry and death, demonstrating one can be justified and sanctified and operate all spiritual gifts and be reprobate and Lost.

William BranhamIn our day He sent Brother Branham with a Message, and at the time of the Eichmann trial and His Prophet repeated the newspaper talk concerning the so-called holocaust of World War II (Revelation Chapter Four, Part II, p. 609:140-141; Feast of the Trumpets, p. 23:175; The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 369:3). This BIG LIE aptly describes Eisenhower’s Death Camps for Germans, and the propaganda of Hollywood Jews; but the Prophet said, “Like the Dutchman, you take me for what I really mean and not what I say(One in a Million, p. 4:22). Think first, and prove all things, only then will the Truth make you free.

Seek to have the mind of Christ by understanding what the Prophet was revealing, sifting the Seed of God’s Word from the husk and chaff (Luke 8:11). “The Prophet said the Message will go forth, but it’ll just go right on over. Just like He said, “Some fell by the wayside, and some this way, but some went over” [Matthew 13:18-23). And a lot of it’s just filler, to fill in the time. Millions of people that’s professing Christianity will miss it a million miles” (Testimony on the Sea, #62-0720).

If it would not have been for US support in food and war material, the Soviets would have collapsed long before 1945 (Guenter).

“In retrospect, if it were not obvious at the time, the bloodthirsty tyrant Stalin and his Kommissar-run regime was the enemy, and Germany, civilized and compatible, was our logical ally. Treacherously, in response to Zionist paymasters and anti-German vengeful hate-mongers, we took Stalin’s side and made war on our German kin. Had we joined Germany in a NATO-style alliance, the Soviet Union would have been defeated and pacified in probably a few months, the ethnic communities liberated under European hegemony and tens of millions of lives saved (to say nothing of the subsequent incalculable benefits of an easily-enforceable world peace). The yielding to Jewish pressure by venal British and French politicians to destroy Germany was by far the most tragic and monstrous miscalculation of all time. The inevitable defeat is to be mourned, not celebrated” (Ian Macdonald).

hidden handBut the Talmud, Judaeo-Communism and the Judaeo-Roman church demand global hegemony. Defeated in 1688, England has since been ruled by an alien nation state, the City of London. Imperial Rome transformed into papal Rome that rules from Vatican City State, a foreign power, while the united States are ruled by the foreign sovereign state, Washington DC. “So you see, my dear Conningsby, the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.” . . . “Governments do not govern, but merely control the machinery of government, being themselves controlled by the hidden hand” (Britain’s first Jewish Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, Conningsby, p. 294-252).

On Sunday Nisan 16, AD30, two of Jesus’ apostles who had not believed the report of His resurrection set off to walk to the village of Emmaus, some seven miles from Jerusalem. And as they spoke and reasoned all that had happened, Jesus Himself drew near, and walked with them. “But their eyes were holden that they should not know Him.” And He said, “What are these matters you are discussing as you walk, and are so very sad?” They told him they had expected Jesus would have redeemed Israel and how the women had found the tomb empty but not seen Him. Their words seemed like idle tales so they disbelieved them, and their hopes were dashed.

Then Jesus said, “O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Was it not necessary for Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?” And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded all the things concerning Himself from the Scriptures. And they approached the village and He acted as though He would go further. But they constrained Him, saying, Stay with us: for it is almost evening, and the day is far spent. So He went in with them, and it came to pass as He reclined at table, He took bread, and blessed it, and breaking it, He began giving it to them. “And their eyes were opened, and they recognized Him; and He vanished from their sight” And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us, while He talked with us by the way, and while He opened the Scriptures to us”  (Luke 24:10-32)?

Jesus’ disciples have played the fool in this our day by “saying what the tapes say” without proving all things by the mouth of two or three witnesses. Did not the Lord command Moses to forbid the Israelites from marrying those who call themselves Jews today (Deuteronomy 7:1-3)? Did not their high priest, King John Hyrcanus I forcibly assimilate them in 129BC. And did not Jesus call them liars (John 8:44)? This being established by Scripture, history and the Message of the Prophet, what is the name of the spirit that has inspired you to believe the BIG LIE of the third holocaust or extermination of six million Jews in the past century? It is more than seventy since World War III and no country has the technology to exterminate the population of, say Sydney and Melbourne in three years secretly without trace.

Jesus told them their holy book makes the commandments of God of none effect (Matthew 15:1-9). Are you not aware their lewd holy book claims the Romans wrapped 64 million Jewish children in scrolls and burned them alive (Gittin 58a)? And that Vespasian killed 4 billion Jews in Bethar (Gittin 57b), and Hadrian slaughtered 1.2 million Jews in Alexandria. By comparison the fraudulent claims against Germany are insignificant chutzpah.

Brethren, the end of the Gentile dispensation is upon us. We have foolish virgin a-plenty: the tribulation is at the door to purge them but where are the wise virgins? Can’t you see that Brother Branham’s understanding was “holden” by the Lord to repeat the BIG LIE of Jewry and the traitors that rule our apostate (once) Christian nations. Unbeknownst to himself the Lord caused Brother Branham to parrot these egregious lies for your sakes. Had he not been yielded to the Spirit common sense, his gift of discernment and personal integrity would have caused him to speak truth, expose the lie and face murder before “the mystery of God was finished”.

Christ’s promise to the saints of the Philadelphian Church Age was, “He that overcomes I will make a pillar in the Temple of My God, and he shall go out no more . . .” The left-hand pillar on the porch of Solomon’s temple was named Boaz, which means “strength,” while that on the right-hand was named Jachin, which means “God will establish”; conjointly “In strength will I establish this mine House that it stand fast forever.” The promises to the overcomer of each Church Age are cumulative so this is also a promise to His end-time Bride who are God’s House.

We live under the Seventh Vial of the antitype of Israel’s Ordeal of Jealousy in Numbers 5. You who are God’s House will be established in strength by faith in His Word before Los Angeles sinks. The rest will submit in the “squeeze”; those still believing the BIG LIE will fall as has no foundation in the Absolute of God’s written Word. Carnal men and women fully versed in the “letter” of the Message, many of them former believers without the “Spirit,” have built an armoury against you who have not prepared your soul but squandered God’s grace. Remember Revelation 3:17-20? Some of these people are trying to do God a service without it being His will; the weapons of their warfare are carefully designed to shake your memory, affection, imagination, reasoning and conscience and plant doubt in God’s prophet and his Message, and strip what little faith you possess. They will succeed unless you yield so that God can establish you in the strength of His Word by faith.

I am WARNING you that confronted with their work those who are not pillars in the Lord’s Temple will be deceived: in the great tribulation they will either endure martyrdom, or take the Mark of the beast and be smitten from the Book of Life. May God bless you as you redeem the time. nl952.htm

Fidel Castro Ruz. His Legacy will Live Forever

November 26, 2016 — Fidel Castro was the embodiment of struggles against global capitalism, committed to a World of Peace, a World of truth, where people join hands, a World of understanding, a World of tolerance and respect . . . “a man of tremendous integrity, with an acute mind and sense of humour, committed in the minute detail of his speech to social progress and the advancement of humankind, conscious of the dangers of the US-led war and the Worldwide crisis, with exceptional skills of analysis and understanding of his fellow human beings, with a true spirit of internationalism and a tremendous knowledge of history, economics and geopolitics.”

Fidel’s passing occurs at a time of crisis and upheaval of the World capitalist system. The World is at a critical crossroads. At this juncture of our history, most progressive movements towards socialism have been destroyed and defeated through US led wars, military interventions, destabilization campaigns, coups d’état. The socialist project in Cuba prevails despite the US economic blockade, CIA intelligence ops and dirty politics . . . Full story: globalresearch.ca

Comment: Before Fidel Castro’s revolution, Cuba had been controlled by the Jewish Mafia from the US, running gambling, prostitution and other criminal businesses. Commentaries on Castro and Cuba show the USA in brutal and bloody darkness not only in Cuba but throughout the world; increasingly so as it nears the union of church and state in transition to the image of the Judaeo-Roman beast of Revelation 13.

All empires need enemies of the state in order to redirect the anger of their own citizens outwards towards an evil other. Cuba effectively serves that purpose for the western hemisphere—a supposedly evil example standing up to the good empire . . . (globalresearch.ca).

Comandante Castro, a lawyer by education, with a true sense of justice for humanity, led a Revolution in his native Cuba to free his people from a brutal dictator, murderer and of course, what else, a puppet of the US, Fulgencio Batista. Fidel has essentially freed Cuba from 500 years of colonialism . . . defied Washington’s multiple attempts to oust him, and more than 600 US secret service attempts to kill him . . . withstood a brutal, illegal, international blockade, initiated and also brutally enforced by Washington with sanctions against any country in the world that wouldn’t follow the embargo dictate of the US, against his country for almost 60 years . . . followers will continue in his spirit fighting against capitalists cum neofascists’ ruthless exploitation (globalresearch.ca).


Liberation of Aleppo . . . Relief of Escaping Imprisonment

President Al Assad

November 29, 2016 — The prolonged dehumanization of the majority of the Syrian people, exploitation of their children as cynical props to further the NATO & Gulf state geo-political objectives in the region, overt and covert endorsement of NATO State-proxy terrorism, the tacit endorsement of economic terrorism via the illegal US/EU sanctions against Syria, all amount to crimes against Humanity and the Syrian people. The #FakeNews “regime change” cohorts are seeing their pyramid of lies being dismantled stone by stone, by the very people they have been claiming to “protect” for almost six years.

The Syrian Arab Army’s remarkable east Aleppo advancement continues: Four more districts freed today, including the pivotal region of Sakhour. In the last 48 hours alone, 12 east Aleppo districts have been liberated. From one area to the next, the “moderate” terrorists are melting down. Most important news today though is the SAA’s recapture of the Suleiman al-Halabi Water Pumping Station. The Aleppo water crisis is over! Since 2012, Turkish-backed “jihadists” have withheld water from Aleppo’s residents as a means of blackmailing them into supporting the “revolution” . . .

Comment: In . . . the worst defeat for US-backed forces since the outset of the war for regime-change in Syria nearly six years ago, government troops, backed by forces from the Lebanese Hezbollah movement and Iraqi Shia militias, have retaken over 40 percent of eastern Aleppo, the last urban stronghold of the so-called “rebels” . . . Syrian army units have conquered 20 square kilometers out of the total of 45 square kilometers making up eastern Aleppo.

The government advance has been extremely rapid, suggesting a rout of the US-backed militias. The ground offensive follows two weeks of intense Syrian air strikes, launched after a month-long cessation of bombing by both Syrian and Russian warplanes . . . The government advance has led to tens of thousands of civilians fleeing the areas controlled by the Islamist militias for safety (wsws.org).


The Major Purveyor of ‘Fake News’ is the CIA-Corporate Complex

CIA logo

November 28, 2016 — The US corporate media, its strings pulled by the modern version of the Central Intelligence Agency’s old Operation MOCKINGBIRD media influencing operation, is laughably accusing Russia of generating “fake news” to influence the outcome of the American presidential election. In a November 24, 2016, article in the CIA-connected Washington Post, reporter Craig Timberg reported: “Russia’s increasingly sophisticated propaganda machinery—including thousands of botnets, teams of paid human ‘trolls,’ and networks of websites and social-media accounts—echoed and amplified right-wing sites across the Internet as they portrayed Clinton as a criminal hiding potentially fatal health problems and preparing to hand control of the nation to a shadowy cabal of global financiers.” The Post’s article is worthy of the CIA-generated propaganda spun by the paper at the height of the Cold War-era MOCKINGBIRD.

Contrary to what the Post reported about right-wing accounts of Hillary Clinton’s ties to “a shadowy cabal of global financiers, the vanquished Democratic presidential nominee and her husband, via the slush fund known as the Clinton Foundation, was closely linked to a variety of “shadowy global financiers,” including those who serve as executives of Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan Chase. The Clinton cabal was more at home in the gatherings of the secretive syndicates of the Bilderberg Group, Bohemian Club, and the Council on Foreign Relations than they were at labour union and student meetings . . .

Waiting for the Barbarians

November 27, 2016 — When we look back on this sad, pathetic period in American history we will ask the questions all who have slid into despotism ask. Why were we asleep? How did we allow this to happen? Why didn’t we see it coming? Why didn’t we resist?

Why did we allow the corporate state to strip away the rights of poor people of colour and force them to live in terror in mini-police states? Why did we build the world’s largest system of mass incarceration? Did we not see that the rest of us would be next? Why did we agree that those defined by the state as terrorists could not only be deprived of their rights but be assassinated? Did we think the state would restrict itself to persecuting and murdering Muslims? Why did we remain silent as the state arrogated to itself the right to detain and prosecute people not for what they had done, or even for what they were planning to do, but for holding religious or political beliefs that the state deemed seditious? Why did we stand by and permit the state to torture? Did we not see that once rights became privileges the state would one day revoke them?

The failure of our capitalist democracy was collective. It was bred by ignorance, indifference, racism, bigotry and the seduction of mass propaganda. It was bred by elites, especially in the press, courts and academia, who chose careerism over moral and intellectual courage. Our rights as citizens were taken from us one by one. There was hardly a word of protest . . . Why didn’t they challenge Barack Obama’s signing into law Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act? Section 1021 overturns the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act, which prohibited the military from acting as a domestic police force. The section also permits the military to carry out extraordinary rendition of US citizens, strip them of due process and hold them indefinitely in military detention centers.

Why didn’t the legal profession fight against the Obama administration’s misinterpretation of the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force Act as giving the executive branch the right to order the assassination of US citizens? How did lawyers and judges allow the misuse of the Espionage Act to target and imprison whistleblowers? How did they permit the Supreme Court to define unlimited corporate contributions to electoral campaigns as a right to petition the government or a form of free speech? Why did they allow those branded as terrorists by the state, and allow poor people of colour, to be locked for years in solitary confinement or special detention centers without fair trials? Why were they silent as the state built ‘black sites’ around the globe, including in Chicago, to torture? . . .

Everyone will be constantly watched. The prisons will swell. Militarized police will no longer be confined to operating in marginal communities. Lethal, indiscriminate force by the state will be common. The courts will condemn with little or no evidence. The press will utterly unplug itself from reality and speak to us as if we lived in a functioning democracy . . .

Believe the Token

A token is a sign or evidence symbolizing or guaranteeing some quality or condition, and in each age there was a token. When Adam took Eve back to himself he surrendered his dominion and ours to Satan, bringing death upon all creation, but God placed His children under the token of the blood of an innocent life surrendered in their stead (Genesis 3:21-22).

When it came time for the exodus the Israelites slew a lamb without spot or blemish for each household, a type of Christ, and painted the evidence or token of the life on lintel of the door, and the Angel of death passed over all houses displaying the token but took the lives of the first-born of man, bird and beast belonging to those houses that did not have the token on display (Exodus 12). And God remained true to that Token when He manifest in virgin-born flesh to meet sin’s price on Calvary as KINSMAN Redeemer for Adam’s fallen race (I Timothy 3:16).

Miscegenation is accursed of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Genesis 1:11, 25-26; Deuteronomy 7:1-3; 23:2-3) yet applauded by apostate clergy and carnal politicians under the hypocritical ‘politically correct’ euphemism ‘multiculturalism.’ However miscegenation with Cain’s race is genocide to Adam’s race since the offspring are not in the Book of Life which is Adam’s genealogy. They cannot breed back into Adam’s race and are without redemption because Jesus Messiah was “the last Adam,” He was not the last Cain.

In the days of Noah physical and spiritual miscegenation was universal as it is now (Matthew 24:37). “The Lord repented having made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart” because He cannot display His attributes as Saviour and Father to a hybrid race not sprung from His Word (Genesis 6:6; John 6:63). The physical and spiritual Serpent’s seed are (Heb.) ‘cherem,’ “dedicated to destruction for the glory of the Lord.” But Noah was perfect in his Adamic pedigree and faith and God instructed him to build an ark and preach salvation to all who would join his crew, yet in one hundred and twenty years Noah did not win one convert. And this is the condition of the world today. After the Flood God renewed the Adamic Covenant with Noah and gave him the token of a rainbow, a sign He will never again destroy all life by flood, and God has been true to His promise for four thousand years (Genesis 9:1-17).

When God renamed Abram (Heb.) ‘exalted father,’ to Abraham ‘Father of nations’ or ‘Gentiles’ (Genesis 17:1-14), He gave him the token of circumcision in the flesh signifying he and his seed were separated from the seed of the Serpent and the heathen Adamic nations unto the Lord God. And we as Christians are circumcised in heart and ears from the world unto the revealed Word (Colossians 2:11).

The saints of every New Testament dispensation received a token as the evidence of a virtue of Christ. II Peter 1:1-12, “Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them who have obtained like precious faith with us in the righteousness of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ [the one Person of God]: Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, according as His divine power has given to us all things pertaining to [eternal] Life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us to His own glory and virtue, by which He has granted to us His exceedingly great and precious promises, that by these promises you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world because of passion.”

Church Age Body of Christ“For this very reason also, applying all diligence add to your faith virtue; and to virtue add knowledge; and to knowledge add temperance; and to temperance add patience; and to patience add godliness; to godliness add brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness add charity. For if these virtues are in you and increasing, they will render your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ neither inactive nor unproductive, while he who lacks these qualities is blind and short-sighted, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. Therefore brethren, be all the more zealous to make your calling and election sure: for if you do this you will never fall; for in this way an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ will be liberally ministered to you.”

“I will therefore always remind you of these things, though you know them, and are established in the present Truth”.

For two thousand years Christ has been building His Body, the Church, “adding precept upon precept; line upon line; here a little revelation (or faith which is a clear understanding of His Word), and there a little more.” His Body is His Bride of all Ages baptized into Him by“the present Truth” for her Age (I John 1:7), for the Master Builder did not pour out the fullness of the Word on the Day of Pentecost. His “first works” (Revelation 2:5) laid the foundation of faith, a clear revelation of the true Onenness of the godhead, not a second or third person but the One Person of God manifest in the virgin-born Jesus of Nazareth, to fulfil the part of our KINSMAN Redeemer and meet sin’s price on Calvary. With this understanding we are obligated to repent and be baptized in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38-39).

Jesus is the Author and Beginner of the creation of God (Revelation 3:14), the first begotten in the NEW CREATION of God-men. His True Church, His Bride of all Ages is the continuation of the same creation begotten by the Spoken Word for her day quickening her soul to new Life in Christ, bringing her mortal spirit and corruptible flesh subject so that her life becomes a written epistle of that part of the Word. As the diagram shows, Christ’s Body is made up of Pentecost, a holy convocation from about AD30 – 53 wherein the saints understood and held the true faith pure and undefiled, though in a small portion; Seven Church Ages of Part-Word, and the holy convocation of this present age wherein “we who are alive and remain” possess “that which is perfect,” Christ, the fullness of the Word through the mysteries of the Seven Thunders which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals (I Thessalonians 4:17; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:1-7).

Following Ephesians 4:11-15 as our diagram explains, Christ’s Body is patterned after “the perfect Man, unto the measure of the full stature of Christ.” Unlike our first birth through passion our NEW MAN is not built from the outside of muscles, bone and mortal spirit, but from the inside of the inside, our soul, puts on the virtues or character of Jesus Christ proven by overcoming the fiery darts or Satan and trials of this earthly life by the Word of God and prayer, separated from the world unto Him.

Now as Peter taught there are seven virtues or essential qualities that make up the character of Christ and His Bride, each displaying the Token or evidence of the measure of His Life in that dispensation. As you know, “When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord lifts up a standard against him” (Isaiah 59:19). So if you study the Seven Church Ages in Revelation 2 and 3, you will note how the Adversary attacked the saints in each of those Ages and see from our diagram how the Life of Christ in the saints of each dispensation, dressed in “the whole armour of God” held the Sword of the Spirit to his throat in the firm hand of faith. We may be confronted by physical beings, but we war against the demons that rule their lives and actions (Ephesians 6:10-18).

Please bear in mind, the diagram does not represent the individual saint, but the Body of Christ of all Ages. The token of the Ephesian Church Age (AD53 – 170) was faith, the rock of revelation from Above, which is the mind of Christ in you (Matthew 16:16-18; I Corinthians 2:16). In the Smyrnean Church Age (170 – 312) God added virtue to faith, which is strength and power to rest in the surety of God’s spoken Word and hold the Sword to the throat of the Enemy. In Mark 5:25-34 a certain woman who has suffered from an issue of blood twelve years and spent all she had on doctors, learning that Jesus had come, she pushed through the crowd and touched his garment believing God would heal her, and was immediately made whole. “Immediately knowing in Himself that virtue—strength, miracle-working power—had gone out of Him, Jesus turned about in the press, and said, Who touched My clothes?”

Prophesying of the Messianic age of redemption and completion Paul described the lack of character of apostate Christians, “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power [or virtue] thereof: from such turn away” (II Timothy 3:5).

Seven Church AgesThe election in comparison with world population was diminishing as the Body grew, and the love of the world and the things of the world eclipsed the S_O_N Light from the Church typed by the Moon so that at the end of the Pergamean Church Age (312 – 606) spiritual darkness wrought such ignorance the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church organized in AD325 at the First Nicaea Council, produced almost a thousand years of Dark Ages in the near total eclipse of the Thyatira Church Age.

Pergamos means “thoroughly married” and the Judaeo-Roman Universal church in time the Empire of Imperial Rome morphed into the Holy (sic) Roman Empire. The enemy came in like a flood, melding Pagan Rome’s Babylonian religion with Christianity, introducing the pagan trinity of gods, baptism in three Titles instead of the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, worship of the dead, a clerical hierarchy, impersonation of Jerusalem’s temple worship with papal high priest, holy water, the sacrifice of the Mass and the Bible-denying Apostle’s Creed (so-called).

The Spirit of God raised up and added the standard of knowledge in opposition to ignorance. Scriptural knowledge to judge good from evil, truth from error, and right from wrong. Isaiah 8:20, “To the Law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this Word, it is because there is no Light in them.” Romans 3:4, “Let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That you might be justified in your sayings, and might overcome when you are judged.” God added the sure knowledge of His unchanging Word as the token of His Life in the saints of the Pergamean Church Age. “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation” (II Peter 1:20; Galatians 1:8-9).

Do not doubt by mixing reasoning with your knowledge. Just Know, and trust, and obey and take God at His Word. How He will answer our prayers I do not know, but “the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much”  (James 5:16). Having prayed, thank the Lord for His answer, for any guidance you might need, and wait.

In the Thyatira Church Age (606 – 1520) Satan mounted His red horse and rode forth “to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and he was given a great sword” (Revelation 6:4). He was forcing the mark of the beast, killing all who refused to worship Rome’s trinity of gods, or do obeisance to the pope as will repeat over the next several years (Revelation 13:15-18). Thus the faith, which was in the heart of the saints, was lost through Judaeo-Roman Catholic martyrdom, bringing the Dark Ages upon Christendom as illustrated in the diagram. The token added into the Body in Thyatira was Temperance or self-control, bringing your mortal spirit and body subject to Christ, the Husband of your soul.

I Peter 2:11-25, “Dearly Beloved, I implore you as aliens and exiles to abstain from passions of the flesh that war against your soul. Maintain good conduct among the Gentiles, so that, although they may defame you as evildoers, they may see your good works, and glorify God in the day of visitation.”

“Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution: whether it is to the Queen as supreme, or to governors as sent by her to bring criminals to justice and to encourage the well-behaved. For it is God’s will that by doing right you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish men. Live as free men, yet without using your liberty to cover up wickedness, but live as servants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the Queen.”

“Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect; not only to the kind and gentle but also to the overbearing. For one is approved if, mindful of God, he endures pain while suffering unjustly. For what credit is it, if when you do wrong and are beaten for it you shall take it patiently? But if when you do right and suffer for it you take it patiently, you have God’s approval.”

“For this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in His steps. He did no sin; no guile was found on His lips. When He was reviled, He reviled not again; when He suffered, He threatened not; but trusted in Him Who judges righteously. He Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we being dead to sins, should live to righteousness. By His stripes you have been healed. For you were straying like sheep; but have now returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls”.

In the Sardis Church Age (1520 – 1750) God added the virtue of patience as the token of this division of the Body. James 1:3-4, “Know this that the trying of your faith produces patience or steadfastness. But let patience have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”

Abraham was patient with God, waiting for Isaac for twenty-five years after the promise. Noah was patient for a hundred and twenty years as he laboured building his ship on top of a mountain in a time when there were no oceans and rain had never fallen on the earth. He patiently preached his prophecy to passers-by, promising salvation from the wrath to come if only they would lend a hand and join the ship’s Company. Noah was steadfast and patiently testified despite the scoffers and ungodly.

God added patience to Moses’ character in face of his hot-tempered wife, and when confronted by Pharaoh’s magicians who were able to impersonate his ‘first pull’ and several plagues. Moses endured as Pharaoh’s heart hardened through unbelief. Daniel’s colleagues Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego exhibited patience or steadfastness for God’s deliverance in Nebuchadnezzar’s fiery furnace, as did Daniel in the Lion’s den.

The hundred and twenty souls in the upper room patiently waited ten days for the Promise. Jesus did not tell Luke how long, but said “tarry in the city of Jerusalem, until you are endued with power from on high” (Luke 24:49).

The token of the virtuous Life of Christ added to the Body in the Philadelphian Church Age (1750 – 1906) was godliness, to be like Jesus, who is God. Like the promises and condemnations in the Messages to the angel in each of the seven Church Ages, these virtues are cumulative in the Body as it was edified or built up so that the Philadelphian Church Age should exercise faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance and patience, making the saints like God. Oh, you say, that’s too much! But Jesus said, “You are Gods” (John 10:34; Psalm 82:6). “You are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect [mature, lacking nothing necessary to completeness; consummate in integrity and virtue]” (Matthew 5:58; Genesis 17:1).

Paul explained that the five-fold ministry will be with the Body “Till we all come into the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13). Perfection encompasses godliness.

Then in the Laodicean Church Age (1906 – 1963) God added brotherly kindness which requires the Christian to place himself in the situation of a brother. “Peter asked Jesus, how often shall I forgive my brother who sins against me? Until seven times? And Jesus told him, I say not until seven times: but, until seventy times seven” (Matthew 18:21-22). Have faith that someday the Lord will open his heart to the revelation. Exercise steadfast patience to endure with temperance and knowledge to understand what is in his heart, meekness and longsuffering virtue in brotherly kindness.

Finished Body of ChristThe Church Age saints with PART Word were baptized into the Body by Christ’s intercession for their ignorance of the fullness while the Book was sealed and completed in March 1963. Then Christ claimed the title deed to redemption, broke its Seven Seals, descended with the open Book and revealed the Seven Sealed mystery through His Prophet William Branham. Our first diagram showed a breach between the Body of Church Age saints and the Capstone; one can only cross that chasm through the fullness of the Holy Spirit by a clear revelation of the Message of the seventh angel which “finished the mystery of God” and introduced the second or (Gk.) parousia Coming of Christ, the fullness of the Word (Revelation 10:7).

The Body of Christ is completed by the Capstone made up of “we who are alive and remain,” our Token in the Life of Christ which is Charity or agapao Love. In I Corinthians 13 Paul explained that although one may exercise all of the gifts of the Spirit, unless he is born-again and possesses God’s own love, he is nothing. Redemption is over; the Church was perfected and finished in March, 1963, as was Christ’s mediation; now the sleeping saints are waiting for the last member of Christ’s end-time Bride to recognize their day and its Message and take their place in the headstone of the Body.

As a chain is only as strong as its weakest link so the whole stature of your being must possess and be controlled by these virtues; only then will the Token of the Life of Christ be on display. “When Jesus came into the world, He said, Sacrifices and offerings You have not desired, but a body you have prepared for Me . . . I have come to do Your will, O God” (Hebrews 10:5, 7). God wanted a people under preeminence who would fulfil His will and gather glory to Himself. Hebrews 2:10-12, “So it was right and proper that God, who made everything for His own glory, in bringing many sons to glory, should perfect the Leader of their salvation by means of sufferings. For One who makes holy and those who are made holy all have one Father, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brothers. Saying, “I will proclaim your name to My brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will praise you. And again, I will put My trust in Him. And again, Here am I and the children God has given Me”.

Jesus was the first such body, the beginner and author of the NEW CREATION of God-men born of His Spirit. His Bride is the continuation of “the creation of God,” the same NEW CREATION or Body wherein God will live and breathe for eternity. So we see that the Bible is the story of the One Person of God unfolding Himself or changing His form from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts to the flesh of His glorified Family.

Now hold the Token over the promise with your immoveable faith. “I assure you, He who believes on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and more than these will he do; because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My Name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My Name, I will do it” (John 14:12-14; 15:7).

Is it healing you need; concerns for a family member or loved one? Ask and you shall receive.

Luke said, “If all the things that Jesus did were written at length, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books which were written” (John 21:25). And Brother Branham said, “Just what I’ve seen in my own ministry, seen Him done, you couldn’t pile the volumes on this platform here, if I wrote it in details, what I seen Him do, just in my own ministry—seen Him do it. See? He had more success in my ministry, than He did in His own. Now, remember, He had more success now, not me; He had. Glory. Hallelujah.

He had more success in Jeffersonville, than He did in Nazareth. He did. In that wicked city and this wicked city . . . Amen. Glory. ‘Cause He could perform no miracles there, but He did here. He finally broke through here. He got it done here. He might’ve had to get people from somewhere else, but He got it done anyhow. So He had more success right here, than He did in Capernaum, or Nazareth in that . . . He done more miracles right here in this Tabernacle, than He did in the entire ministry on earth. That’s right. He did it. Now, what about the rest of the world? Oh, my. Now, that’s what He done.

Now, remember: He done. Now, I didn’t say that I done (See?), ’cause I didn’t do it. I just stood . . . And I just loved Him and just submitted myself to Him, and said what He said; and the Holy Spirit went to the other people, they believed what He said, and then He did the work. That’s all.

If He can get all of us believing it . . . What would He do right now, if He can get us all believing it right now, right? There wouldn’t be a feeble person around the country. That’s right. If He could get everybody to believe it, it’d all be over. See?

Hold your Token over your unmovable faith in His promised Word, and Satan will go. God always honours His Token. He honoured in Egypt. He honoured it in Jericho when Rahab hung the red cord from her window. He expects us to display His Token over our faith, to Satan and all his unbelieving cults and denominations, that we believe His promise is true, and He will do what He promised to do.

The Token is the Holy Spirit. “For by one Spirit we are all baptized into one Body, and made partakers of His glory.” Believe the Token! nl951.htm
