Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we appreciate your fellowship around God’s unchanging Word.

Android PhoneThe US bill creating new sanctions against Russia, Syria, and Iran received such overwhelming support in Congress President Trump dare not exercise his veto because the Republican Congress is in the pocket of the Neocons and the military industrial complex with the numbers to override a veto. As Jesus prophesied, “The earth is corrupt and filled with violence [again] and I will destroy them with the earth . . . the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: but the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same Word are kept in store, reserved unto [nuclear] fire against the Day of Judgment and perdition of ungodly men”  (Genesis 6:11-13; II Peter 3:6-7; Matthew 24:37).

Redeem the time: when Los Angeles sinks the Day of man will have ended and the Day of the Lord will have begun. “He that is unjust, will remain unjust: and he who is filthy will be filthy still: and he who is righteous will continue righteous: and he that is holy will be holy still” (Revelation 2:11). Scores of millions will perish around the world on that day; instantly you will be in the tribulation. The monetary system will have collapsed along with the global economy; the brief ‘hot stage’ of World War III will ignite along with worldwide depression. This will be a time of universal Judgment.

Our main article is entitled “Satan is playing a Shell Game.” Put God first in your life, the time is short; you will have no opportunity to repent at leisure. The door of mercy will close, don’t allow Satan to play you for a fool. Study to show yourself approved of God and diligently prove all things by two or three witnesses in your own Bible; don’t receive a second hand religion, but know that you know that you know, and hold fast that which is good.

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.

House passes New Russia Sanctions, Pumps Adrenaline into Cold War 2.0

July 25, 2017 — Late this afternoon the US House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed HR 3364, the “Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act” . . . the only nays coming from Republicans Justin Amash (R-MI), John Duncan (R-TN), and Thomas Massie (R-KY).

The bill adds additional sanctions on Russia as punishment for the as-yet-unproven claims that Moscow somehow interfered in US elections to help secure a victory for Donald Trump. It also seeks to punish Russia for its supposed involvement in Ukraine—ignoring that unrest in Ukraine stems from the US-initiated coup against the democratically elected government of Viktor Yanukovich in 2014.

The legislation ties the president’s hands in an unprecedented way, as should Trump decide within his Constitutional authority as Executive to pursue a foreign policy requiring the cancelling of sanctions he is not free to do so. He must write to Congress asking permission to end the sanctions and give convincing reason why Congress should agree. Congress then has 30 days to consider the President’s request during which time he is forbidden from taking any action on the matter . . . It President Trump does not veto this bill, it will signify that he has essentially given up on his presidency. At least when it comes to foreign policy. Will the bill for such a surrender come due should he decide to seek a second term? Full story: ronpaulinstitute.org

Comment: In a memo to President Trump, a group of former US intelligence officers, including NSA specialists, cite new forensic studies to challenge the claim of the key January 6 “assessment” that Russia “hacked” Democratic emails last year . . . (Intel Vets Challenge ‘Russia Hack’ Evidence). France Questions Legality of New US Bans on Iran, Russia, North Korea.


Trump is being moved aside so that Conflict with Russia can Proceed

July 26, 2017 — What is the Congress up to with their stupid bill that imposes more sanctions and removes the power of President Trump to rescind the sanctions that President Obama imposed? . . . If Trump vetos this encroachment on presidential power, Congress and the presstitute media will present the veto as absolute proof that Trump is a Russian agent and is protecting Russia with his veto . . . Republicans are supporting the bill, thus undermining their president . . . Full story: paulcraigroberts.org

State Dept. Lawyers removing References to ISIS ‘Genocide’ against Christians, Religious Minorities

July 25, 2017 — The State Department’s top lawyers are systematically removing the word “genocide” to describe the Islamic State’s mass slaughter of Christians, Yazidis, and other ethnic minorities in Iraq and Syria from speeches before they are delivered and other official documents, according to human rights activists and attorneys familiar with the policies . . . These efforts guarantee that Obama-era policies that worked to exclude Iraq’s Christian and other minority religious populations from key US aid programs remain in place, the activists said.

Richard Visek, who was appointed by President Obama as head the State Department’s Office of Legal Adviser in October 2016, is behind the decision to remove the word “genocide” from official documents, according to Nina Shea, an international human rights lawyer who directs the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom. “I don’t think for a minute it’s a bureaucratic decision—it’s ideological,” said Shea, who also spent 12 years as a commissioner on the US Commission on International Religious Freedom, or CIRF, from 1999 to 2012.

Iraqi Sources: Real Death Toll in US-led Siege of Mosul at 40,000

July 21, 2017 — More than 40,000 men, women and children were killed in the grinding nine-month-long siege of Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city, according to a report published Thursday by the veteran Middle East correspondent for the British daily Independent Patrick Cockburn.

Cockburn’s source is the former finance and foreign minister of the Iraqi government, Hoshyar Zebari . . . The sheer scale of the killing makes the siege of Mosul one of the greatest war crimes of the post-World War II era. While before the city fell to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in June of 2014 it had a population of approximately 2 million, by the time the siege began, there were still at least 1.2 million civilians trapped in Mosul. This population was subjected to horrific violence . . . The report described the artillery and rocket launchers employed by the Iraqi forces, working closely with US special forces “advisors,” as “indiscriminate weapons” that “must never be used in the vicinity of civilians” . . . “Major cities such as Detroit and the outer boroughs of New York have large abandoned areas that could be safely redeveloped as urban training sites” . . . the major is really urging Pentagon commanders to “imagine” is using the military to suppress revolutionary upheavals in the US itself.

Comment: ‘We killed everyone—IS, men, women, children.’ Daniel 7:23, “The fourth beast will be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, [a church kingdom] and shall devour the whole earth, and [her (once) Protestant US image] will tread it down, and break it in pieces . . . As it was in the days of Noah,” the world is falling apart.


‘Media Coverage on Syria Biggest Media Lie of our Time’: Flemish Priest in Syria

January 24, 2017 — The Flemish Father Daniël Maes (78) lives in Syria in the sixth-century-old Mar Yakub monastery in the city of Qara, 90 kilometers north of the capital Damascus. Father Daniel has been a witness to the “civil war” and according to him, Western reports on the conflict in Syria are very misleading. In short: “the Americans and their allies want to completely ruin the country.”

“The idea that a popular uprising took place against President Assad is completely false. I’ve been in Qara since 2010 and I have seen with my own eyes how agitators from outside Syria organized protests against the government and recruited young people. That was filmed and aired by Al Jazeera to give the impression that a rebellion was taking place. Murders were committed by foreign terrorists, against the Sunni and Christian communities, in an effort to sow religious and ethnic discord among the Syrian people. While in my experience, the Syrian people were actually very united . . .

Before the war, this was a harmonious country: a secular state in which different religious communities lived side by side peacefully. There was hardly any poverty, education was free, and health care was good. It was only not possible to freely express your political views. But most people did not care about that” . . . it is miraculous that we are still alive. We owe that to the army of Assad’s government and to Vladimir Putin, because he decided to intervene when the rebels threatened to take power . . .

When thousands of terrorists settled in Qara, we became afraid for our lives. They came from the Gulf States, Saudi Arabia, Europe, Turkey, Libya, there were many Chechens. They formed a foreign occupation force, all allied to al-Qaeda and other terrorists. Armed to the teeth by the West and their allies with the intention to act against us, they literally said: “This country belongs to us now.” Often, they were drugged, they fought each other, in the evening they fired randomly . . . The Americans’ attempt to impose a unipolar world is the biggest problem. Trump understands that radical Islam is a bigger threat than Russia. Full story: www.sott.net

Norway takes Lead in Race to Build Autonomous Cargo Ships

July 22, 2017 — Dubbed by shipping executives the “Tesla of the Seas,” the Yara Birkeland now under development is scheduled in late 2018 to start sailing fertilizer 37 miles down a fiord from a production facility to the port of Larvik. Using the Global Positioning System, radar, cameras and sensors, the electric ship is designed to navigate itself around other boat traffic and to dock on its own.

The vessel will cost $25 million, about three times as much as a conventional container ship of its size, but its backers say without need for fuel or crew it promises to cut annual operating costs by up to 90%. The 100-container ship is scheduled to be in the water toward the end of next year, though initially it will be tested with a human at the controls . . . The ship is expected to replace 40,000 truck drives a year through urban areas in southern Norway . . . Full story: wsj.com  youtu.be

Comment: British manufacturer Rolls-Royce Holding PLC is investing in similar technology and plans to launch robotic ships by 2020. The first vessels will likely be tugboats and ferries, with cargo ships that can sail through international waters to follow.


 

Satan is playing a Shell Game

Proverbs 29:18, “Where there is no vision, the people perish”.

We must believe in a Day of Judgement. If evil is not finally punished then this world is meaningless. The wicked may seem to prosper for a time, but a just God will deal with sin. Only Christians have the spiritual resources to cope with such tragedy as the massacre in St. James Church, Cape Town, July 25, 1993 said Rev. Frank Retief as he outlined a Biblical response (PowerPoint presentation).

Sin is not murder, robbery, adultery or deception which are the fruits of sin. Sin is unbelief in the revealed Word of God. People do those horrible things because they are sinners: unbelievers in God’s Word. God’s Word is His will; once it is revealed we are accountable and obligated to repent and be baptized in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of past unbelief and its rotten fruit. Remission is not forgiveness but full pardon, as if you never transgressed.

As you read God’s words of love, grace and warning, you must decide and act “while it is today”: inaction today may cause them to become a message of condemnation and judgment tomorrow. While there is mercy in these words, won’t you receive it and qualify for the first resurrection? The second resurrection is a resurrection unto the judgment according to your works (Revelation 20:11-15). John 5:24, “He that hears My Word, and believes on Him that sent Me, has eternal Life [right now], and shall not come into the judgment; but is passed [permanently] from death unto eternal Life”.

Dome of the RockThe prophet Amos, whose name means ‘burden,’ lived in Tekoa which means ‘trumpet,’ a village six miles south east of Bethlehem, testified, “I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet’s son; I was a shepherd and a gatherer of sycamore fruit: and the Lord took me from following the flock, and said to me, Go, prophesy against My people [the ten tribes of the northern kingdom] Israel” (Amos 7:14-17). Amos prophesied in Israel two years before the earthquake in Judah in the days of Uzziah, which Zechariah 14:5 cites as a type of the earthquake that will soon split the Mount of Olives and demolish Es Sakhra, the Dome which enshrines the rock from which Mohammad is said to have ascended to heaven. This will ignite the invasion, utter defeat and abandonment of the modern Israel state by the great mass of non-Semitic, anti-Semitic Israeli self-styled Jews, enabling Jacob’s true descendents to return to the Land of their Covenant for redemption (Isaiah 29:6; 64:1-2; Amos 5:8; 6:11; 8:8-10; 9:1-5; Micah 1:2-3; Habakkuk 3:1-6; Zechariah 4:7; Revelation 16:19).

Amos 3:6, “Shall a trumpet sound an alarm in the city and the people not be afraid? Shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord has not done it? [The evil of sin is from ourselves; the evil of trouble is from God”].

Luke 21:25-28 states that when Israel’s Seventh Trumpet sounds “there will be signs in the sun, moon and stars, with distress on earth among the nations, with perplexity—utterly bewildered at the roaring of sea and waves [when Los Angeles sinks]; men’s hearts failing from dread in apprehension of [atomic war] which are coming on the world: for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws nigh”.

The Seventh Trumpet is coming! It’s coming, it’s coming . . . sooner than you dare imagine.

Matthew 24:3cChrist’s end-time Bride has recognised her Sign in the heavens—without excuse the world has seen and examined this Supernatural phenomenon that appeared as a public witness on February 28, 1963. The first photographic report appeared in this May 17, 1963 issue of Life Magazine. Brother Branham had no knowledge of this appearing until Sunday, May 26 when he saw this article and recognized the Cloud as that into which he was caught up from Sunset Mountain on about March 8, 1963. He borrowed the magazine and reported his discovery to the Church in his sermon “Come, follow Me,” p. 2:13-16 on Saturday, June 1, 1963. Also see “Standing in the Gap,” p. 21:82; June 23, “Is Your Life worthy of the Gospel?” p. 1:6-7, June 30, and Newsletters 752 and 955. Sadly, the world church system is not looking for the mandatory sign in the sky and certainly not for the sign of a prophet—despite Amos 3:7-8:

“Surely the Lord God will do nothing, without [first showing a sign in the sky and] sending His secret to His servants the prophets [warning of a way to escape judgment]. The lion has roared, who will not fear? the Lord God has spoken, who can but prophesy?”

Applying Amos to the present day we saw that when the elders called for a KINSMAN Redeemer in Revelation 5 the Lamb rose from the Altar of Sacrifice, certifying Christ’s mediation for ignorance of the fullness of the Word was completed and Redemption is over, for there can be no intercession without blood (I Corinthians 13:10). As the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David prevailed to claim His Title Deed to redemption, open the Book and loose its Seven Seals He was no longer Son of God and intercessor but Son of man and Judge of the living and the dead as portrayed in the visions of Daniel 7:9-10 and Revelation 1:9-16 and witnessed by this Supernatural Cloud that manifest above the atmosphere where there is no moisture to form a natural cloud. You and every member of Christ’s Bride of all Ages was present in theophany with the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders when we crowned Him King of kings by perfect faith (Revelation 5:5-14).

Dressed in regal splendour and crowned as a king Satan appeared before St. Martin and said, “Martin, do you know me? I am your Lord and Saviour. I’m the One that saved you. Worship me!” Martin said, “Begone Satan! You have a crown on your head. God’s Word says His saints will crown Him at the end of the age.” The end of the age was in 1963 when Christ opened the Book (Daniel 12:4, 9; Ephesians 1:10; Revelation 5:13-14; 10:1-7).

“And when he had opened the Seventh Seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour” (Revelation 8:1) because Jesus Messiah and the saints descended (I Thessalonians 4:14; Jude 11:14). The unwritten Seventh Seal is the revelation of the previous six written Seals as explained in Revelation 10:1-7 which describes Christ’s unseen second or (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming. here the “I” is John who represents Christ’s end-time Bride.

“And I saw another mighty Angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon His head, and His face was as it were the sun, and His feet as pillars of fire: and He had in His hand a little Book open: and He set His right foot [in judgment] upon [Papal Rome, the beast from the] sea [multitudes], and His left foot on [her once Protestant US image that arose from] the [sparsely populated] earth. And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars: and when He had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices [from the earth for heaven has emptied].”

“And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, [in his AD95-96 vision] John was about to write: and I heard a Voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. And the Angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up His hand to heaven, and swore by Him that lives forever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be (Gk.) ‘chronos’ time [or delay for intercession] no longer: but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound [His end-time Message in 1963], the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets”.

Amos 3:8, The Lion has roared, who will not fear? the Lord God has sounded the doom of unbelief, who can but prophesy [and proclaim the revelation]?”

“Not being a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work” (James 1:25) Christ’s end-time Bride, represented by John, “took the little Book out of the Angel’s hand, and ate it up [becoming one with its Message]; and [as a hearer] it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter [because I must be a doer also]. And He said unto me, You must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings”  (Revelation 10:8-11).

The coming of a prophet is a warning sign that judgment is at hand. Noah was a sign to the antediluvian world, Moses was a sign of judgment upon Egypt, John the Baptist was a sign to the Israelites, and William Branham was a sign to the churches.

God’s Word is His will; once it has been revealed to us we are accountable for what we “do” with it (Matthew 25:14-30). This is contract law, a common example of which is sign on the highway stating the speed limit is, say 110. Once a vehicle has passed that sign the driver is deemed to have read and committed himself to the contract; should the radar find his vehicle exceeding the limit he has broken his contract and will be summonsed.

The Message of God’s Prophet, whether from your lips and life, transcripts or audio of his ministry, likewise presents all who hear with the choice of mercy or judgment. Having made one’s decision one will receive the reward Christ has freely purchased or meet sin’s price. Truth or consequences? We must unite with one side of the other, too often without thought. Brother Branham was “a prophet as thoroughly vindicated, or even more thoroughly vindicated than any prophet in all the ages from Enoch to this day, because this man will of necessity have the capstone prophetic ministry and God will show him forth. He won’t need to speak for himself, God will speak for him by the voice of the sign” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 329).

When John introduced the Word made flesh the Israelites gave preference to the Babylonian Talmud and united with Imperial Rome to murder their King. “Pontius Pilate said to the Jews, Behold your King! But they cried out, Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him. Pilate said to them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar” (John 19:14-15). Prophetic words for there had to be a union of supposed believers against the Word before the unbelieving national power could unite against Judea as the unconscious servants of God’s Judgment prophesied in Ezekiel 9 and Matthew 24:3a.

When Brother Branham introduced the second Coming of the Word, Christendom (so-called) gave preference to its Babylonian trinity of gods and united with Papal Rome to “crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame” (Hebrews 6:6). Like apostate Judeans, 2.3 billion Christians (so-called) are “lukewarm . . . materially rich and increased with goods . . . and know not that spiritually they are wretched and miserable, and poor, and blind and naked” (Revelation 3:15-17). Having forsaken the Absolute of God’s unchanging Word they are defenceless, trying to do God a service without it being His will, uniting with “Mystery, Babylon the Great,” oblivious to the fact God raised up Judaeo-Communism to destroy that Christ-rejecting church and her harlot daughters as He raised up Nebuchadnezzar to chastise Judah.

In Matthew 15:6, 9, Jesus told the scribes and the Pharisees, “You have made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.” And today the Christian denominations are worshiping in vain, “teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Like Caiaphas our denominational leaders know the “letter” of the Bible but they don’t know the Spirit who wrote the Book.

We live under the Sixth Vial of Revelation 16:12-16, “And the sixth angel poured out his Vial upon the great river Euphrates [the border between East and West and the eastern limit of the Roman Empire]; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. And I . . . . your name here as John represents Christ’s end-time Bride . . . . saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, Imperial Rome, and out of the mouth of the beast, the Roman Catholic Church, and out of the mouth of the false prophet (or first pope). [Frogs are unclean animals the look behind themselves]. They are spirits of demons [that look back to the First Nicaea Council where the Babylonian trinity was introduced into Christendom at the organization of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church] doing [political] miracles that go forth to the kings of the whole inhabited world, to gather them together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty”.

Brother Branham revealed that these three oppressive spirits manifest as three isms, Fascism, Nazism, and Communism, and that “they would all wind up in Communism [as Jesus said in verses 14 and 16] . . . watch Russia, the king of the north.” The Judaeo-Roman churches, indeed all religions, are being gathered together, and political groups—all of them antichrist—are uniting against them in Judaeo-Communism.

“Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps himself clothed in bed, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.” He has “come as a thief,” yet after fifty-four years the world church system knows nothing of His second or ‘parousia’ Coming, nor is it looking for a sign in the sky or a prophet. “And they gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon”.

Christ’s Bride, the “wise virgins,” have been called out from Rome and her harlot daughters by the “shout” of I Thessalonians 4:16 which is the “midnight cry” of Matthew 25:6 to unite with Christ the Word in “the unity of the faith” for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Romans 8:19; Ephesians 4:13; I Corinthians 15:52).

II Corinthians 10:3-6, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh: (for the weapons of our warfare are not physical, but possess divine power to destroy strongholds); casting down reasonings, and every proud barrier against the knowledge of God, and leading every thought into subjection to Christ, ready to punish all disobedience, when your obedience is fully expressed”.

Ephesians 6:52, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places”.

This warfare, which is spiritual had its beginning in the Garden of Eden when Lucifer incarnate the Serpent who seduced and impregnated Eve who bore Lucifer his vicarious son, Cain. Eve also bore his half-brother Abel. To this day we have two distinct races on earth. God “put enmity between the natural seed of the Serpent, and Adam’s race,” and the enmity is extant. The first Adam’s pure lineage is a continuation of God’s spoken Word and has a KINSMAN Redeemer in the last Adam who is the Word made flesh. As a hybrid not in God’s creation, Cain and his offspring are not in Adam’s race and have no KINSMAN Redeemer. Thus miscegenation with Cain’s race is genocide to Adam’s race for the offspring cannot be in the Book of Life which is the genealogy of Adam.

Spiritual Serpent’s seed is the seed of discrepancy or hybrid religion which has added to or taken from the revealed Word of God. Pharisaism (Judaism), Catholicism, Islam, and since Christ is no longer a Mediator for ignorance of the fullness of the Word, the apostate (once) Protestant denominations, all follow the Babylonian trinitarian religion unawares because lazy adherents neglect to “prove all things and hold fast that which is good” and without faith receive the second-hand religion of their kind old rabbi, imam, priest or minister.

Thoroughly corrupted spiritually and wasted naturally by miscegenation (Genesis 6:1-4), God determined to destroy the antediluvian civilization. Only five souls were saved. Ham and his wife were in the righteous line physically, but spiritually they were unbelievers and lost. Noah’s wife Naamah was not the mother of his three sons but a direct descendent of Cain and the mother of Ham’s illegitimate son, Canaan.

Jesus said, “As were the days of Noah, so will the (Gk.) ‘parousia’ of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:37). Thus today the vast majority of earth’s population is natural and spiritual Serpent’s seed, and miscegenation, which is accursed of God, is universally applauded by church and state.

Babel, which means ‘confusion,’ was founded by Ham’s son Cush and brought to power by his son Nimrod. The antediluvian religion revived in Babel; monotheism was transformed to the polytheistic trinitarian doctrine and Satan’s mysteries rose up against the truth of God. Babylon succeeded Babel, and when it fell, the priesthood relocated making Pergamos Satan’s seat. After several generations its priest king Attalus III died without heir and willed his kingdom to Julius Caesar who became Pontifex Maximus. In 375 Emperor Gratian refused to wear the robe and assume the title Pontifex Maximus, determining first and foremost to be an Orthodox Christian Emperor, then in AD440 Leo I took the headship the Emperor rejected. In Revelation 17 God no longer refers to Pergamos or Babylon as Satan’s seat nor does He say that is where Satan dwells. The throne room is in MYSTERY Babylon, a city on seven hills (Revelation 17:5, 9). Its head is antichrist for he has usurped the position of Christ Who alone is mediator and Who alone can forgive sins (II Thessalonians 2:4). Yes, Pontiff Maximus is with us today.

The ancient priests were in charge of teaching the sciences. Egypt received her science and mathematics from the Chaldeans and Greece received them from Egypt. This is the key to understanding how the Babylonish religion gained its strength in these two countries. And whenever one nation was able to conquer another nation, in due time the religion of the subduer became the religion of the subdued. Thus the mysteries of Babylon spread from nation to nation until trinitarianism appeared in Rome, in China, India; even in North and South America we find the same worship.

During Judah’s captivity corrupt men began transforming the Old Testament into “traditions that transgress and make the commandment of God of none effect” (Deuteronomy 4:2; Matthew 15:1-9), hybridizing it with commentary based upon the “Slave-Trading Codes” of Ancient Babylon. In his Foreword to the Soncino English translation of the Babylonian Talmud The Very Rev. The Chief Rabbi J.H. Hertz states: “The beginnings of Talmudic literature date back to the time of the Babylonian Exile in the sixth pre-Christian century . . . When a thousand years later, the Babylonian Talmud assumed final codified form in the year 500 of the Christian era, the Western Roman Empire had ceased to be . . .”

This inversion of God’s unchanging Word is exemplified in an ‘eruv,’ an area within which observant Jews can carry or push objects on the Sabbath, (which lasts from sunset on Friday to sunset on Saturday), without violating Jewish law that prohibits carrying anything without the home. There are over 200 eruvim in the world.

An eruv must be ‘completely enclosed’—not by building a special wall—but enclosed by existing natural boundaries like railway or telephone lines, hedges or walls. By means of mental reservation, equivocation, prevarication or purposed evasion many private and public properties (not enclosing 600,000 or more people) are integrated into one larger private domain, thus avoiding restrictions on carrying objects from the private to the public domain on sabbath and holidays which Jewish law prohibits (Genesis 3:1). According to rabbis Ritva and Ramban the maximum size of an Eruv is ‘as far as the eyes can see,’ which, based on Bechorot 54b, is 16 miles in either direction which would be 32×32 miles, roughly 1,024 sq. miles. For reference the area of Manhattan is only 23 sq. miles or 655,360 acres. So it appears the Talmud has usurped Messiah who will “magnify the Law, and make it honourable” (Isaiah 42:4, 21; 43:25; 51:4; Matthew 5:17-30).

Romans 7:25, “with the mind they serve the Law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.” God is not mocked by their shell and pea trick. This deception is exemplified in Kol Nidre: the Prayer of the Synagogue of Satan based on the declaration of the Talmud: “He who wishes that his vows and oaths shall have no value, stand up at the beginning of the year and say: ‘All vows which I shall make during the year shall be of no value’.”

As Jewry transformed the Law and the Prophets to their opposite in the Babylonian Talmud, they organized their Judaeo-Roman Universal church into the church of antichrist (Revelation 2:9; 3:9). And early last century Wall Street Lawyer Samuel Untermeyer (who bribed President Woodrow Wilson, helped draft the Federal Reserve Banking law in 1910, perjured himself before a Senate investigation, declared war on Germany and an economic boycott of German goods in 1933, declaring they would starve them to death), along with other wealthy and influential Zionists, directed and financed Cyrus I. Scofield to inject Zionist ideas into American Protestantism. Since it was first published in 1909, the Scofield Reference Bible has made uncompromising Zionists out of tens of millions of Americans. Although it contains the text of the King James Version, his annotated commentary has induced generations of American evangelicals to believe God demands their uncritical support for the modern Israel State.

The trinitarian religion of Ham, Cush and Nimrod is worshipped universally by all religions, including Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It spread:

 

  • From Babylon to Pergamum, to Rome.
  • From Babylon to Judah and Pharisaism, to Talmudism, to Medieval Rabbinism, to Modern Rabbinism, to Judaism.
  • From Babylon to Pharisaism to the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church at Nicaea.
  • From Babylon to Pharisaism to the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church to Islam.
  • From Babylon to Pharisaism to Khazaria.
  • From Babylon to Pharisaism to Spain, to Holland to the conquest of England and the establishment of the City State of London and its Empire.
  • From Babylon to Pharisaism to the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church to National Capitalism, Socialism, Communism, Humanism, etc.,
  • From Babylon to Pharisaism to the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church to Vatican II to the federation of world religions.
  • From the pre-planned phony war on terrorism to the Anglo-Zionist Judaeo Roman Catholic One World Order and the refinancing of the US dollar.
  • From the breach of the City of London-Vatican City State-Washington DC City State agreement to the re-communising of Russia.
  • From the terminus of MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT and all of these pagan actors will be the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:10-15).

 

Islam out of Rome

The legerdemain throughout spells “unite,” “unite,” “unite” to build the mighty earth-bound kingdom of the god of this world. This is a zero sum shell game: if you study the Babylonian Talmud you will discover one mind behind the dogma, political intrigue and martyrdom of papal Rome and her Judaeo-Jesuits in common cause with the many holocausts claimed and perpetrated by Jewry through the centuries; and in the Koran you will find the Talmud and Judaeo-Roman church. This is a shell game in which all players are competing to establish the global kingdom Lucifer offered Jesus Messiah if he would do obeisance (Matthew 4:8-9).

God sent and vindicated the Prophet William Branham to call us Gentiles OUT from the world church system into the unity of the faith by revelation of the unwritten Seven Thunders into invisible union with Christ, the fullness of the Word. You should be experientially conscious of His Presence leading, guiding, correcting and speaking with you by “the still small Voice of the Archangel” in your heart. The ‘third pull’ will prove your invisible union.

“Not one person will sit in the millennial throne of the Lord Jesus Christ unless he has been living that Word. Your prayers, your fastings, your repentances—no matter what you present to God—none of that will gain you the privilege of sitting in that throne. It will be granted only to the W_O_R_D Bride. As the throne of the king is shared with the queen because she is united to him, so only they who are of that Word even as He is of that Word will share that throne” . . . [“And the saints shall judge the world” (I Corinthians 6:2)].

“Remember we have shown clearly all through the Ages that even as Adam and Eve fell because they left the Word, so the Ephesian Age fell by turning slightly from the Word, until with every Age continuing to turn away, we have a final repudiation of the Word by the World Church system. This Laodicean Age ends ended in a blackout of the Word, thereby causing a departure of the Lord from the midst. He stands outside calling to His own who follow Him by obedience to the Word. After a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit this little hunted and persecuted group will go to be with Jesus” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 360:6 – 361:1).

I Thessalonians 4:17, “With the Trump of God the dead in Christ will rise first. They who cannot be made perfect until our full number is made up and ready for full adoption. The Church and the Word will unite in one Body as we manifest that we are the Sons of God then we who are alive and remain will see one of our loved ones who has gone on unite with us again, and we’ll be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, and caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord and never out of His Presence”. nl984.htm

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it’s always a pleasure to share your fellowship in God’s unchanging Word.

Android PhoneBrother Branham said, “[the ‘third pull’ will not be used in a great way until this Council [of churches] begins to tighten up . . . But when . . . the squeeze comes down, then you’ll see, what you’ve seen temporarily, be manifested in the fullness of its power . . . There is coming a time upon, in this nation, to where this nation is going to exercise all the power that the beast had before it, which was pagan Rome when it become papal Rome, see, and that this nation will do that” (Look Away to Jesus, p. 5:39, 45).

Nations have been transformed into corporations controlled by the Money Power through debt, an ancient scheme for peaceful conquest of the whole universe employing every endeavour to subdue countries by an economical conquest. Now, six months into the new administration, it is becoming clearer and clearer that America is in decline, and according to our news item from the CFR’s Foreign Policy magazine, President Trump is not going to fix it.

Henry Kissinger is credited as saying, “Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world.” But the City of London’s fractional reserve fiat money system is on a precipice. Vatican City State is no longer exercises absolute authority over mind and soul, and Washington City State’s US Corporation is motherless broke. Ah, but she possesses the world’s most powerful blooded military.

Should the troika delay the ‘hot stage’ of World War III unduly their tyranny over mind and matter will escape their clutch. This trinity of evil will unite to maintain their powers and the world system by force. Daniel and Jesus said so. It’s in the Book. Cuba, North Korea, Iran, Syria and Russia are possibly the only countries without a Rothschild controlled Central Bank. The apostate (once) Christian West will attach the East.

Our feature article, “Pentecost & Two Wave Loaves” expounds the one way for men and women of God to escape the wrath that will overtake the world in a time of unprecedented natural convulsion in the sun, moon and stars, with earthquakes, volcanos and tidal waves, international warfare, economic collapse: “men’s hearts failing them for fear of nuclear annihilation”.

The Squeeze: how Governments can kill Cash

July 17, 2017 — The global elites are using negative interest rates to do the same thing as inflation—make your money disappear. One way to avoid negative interest rates is to go to physical cash. In order to prevent that option, the elites have launched a war on cash. The war on cash has two main thrusts . . .

 

  • Make it difficult to obtain cash in the first place.

 

In the US, banks will report anyone taking more than $3,000 in cash as engaging in a “suspicious activity” using Treasury Form SAR (Suspicious Activity Report). And then . . .

  1. Eliminate large-denomination banknotes.

The US got rid of its $500 note in 1969, and the $100 note has lost 85% of its purchasing power since then. With a little more inflation, the $100 bill will be reduced to chump change . . . The war on cash is old news, but there are important new developments . . .

dsturmerLast May, the European Central Bank announced that they were discontinuing the production of new 500 euro notes (worth about US$575 at current exchange rates). Existing 500 euro notes will still be legal tender, but new ones will not be produced. This means that over time, the notes will be in short supply and individuals in need of large denominations may actually bid up the price above face value paying, say, 502 euros in smaller bills for a 500 euro note. The 2 euro premium in this example is like a negative interest rate on cash.

Why are central banks like the ECB imposing negative interest rates? What is the point of this policy?

The whole idea of the war on cash is to force savers into digital bank accounts so their money can be taken from them in the form of negative interest rates. An easy solution to this is to go to physical cash. Yet if physical cash becomes scarce (or nearly worthless due to inflation), savers may pay a slight premium for large-denomination notes.

Your premium disappears because the note pays no interest. The elites have actually figured out a way to have negative interest rates follow you from digital accounts to paper money.

Negative interest rates are a thinly disguised tax on savers.

The traditional way of stealing money from savers is with inflation. You may get a positive interest rate of 2% on your money, but if inflation is 3%, then your real return is negative 1%.

If we take your €100,000 bank deposit for example and apply a 2% positive interest rate, you would earn €2,000 in interest, leaving an account balance of €102,000 after one year. But after adjusting for 3% inflation, the purchasing power of the €102,000 balance is only €98,940. This leaves the saver worse off than in the negative interest rate example above (assuming no inflation in that case). In the first case, the banks extracted €500 through negative interest rates. In the second case, they extracted €1,060 in lost purchasing power. Any way you look at it, you lose. That’s the reality.

The second answer is the academic theory behind negative interest rates. In theory, savers will be dissatisfied with NIRP and react by spending their money. Likewise, entrepreneurs will find negative interest rates attractive because they can borrow money and pay back less to the bank.

This combination of lending and spending by consumers and entrepreneurs alike will lead to consumption and investment that will stimulate the economy, especially after the famous Keynesian “multipliers” are piled on top. This theory is junk science.

The reality is the opposite of what the elite academics project. The reason savers are saving in the first place is to achieve some future goal. It could be for retirement, children’s education or medical expenses. When negative rates are imposed, savers don’t save less; they save more in order to make up the difference and still meet their goals.

The other unintended consequence of NIRP is the signal it sends . . . Savers rightly conclude that if central banks are using NIRP, they must be worried about deflation. In deflation, prices drop. Consumers defer spending in order to get lower prices in the future. Instead of inducing savers to save less and spend more, NIRP causes savers to save more and spend less. It’s a perfect example of the law of unintended consequences. When abstract academic theories are applied in the real world by central bankers with no real-world experience, you get the opposite result of what’s intended. These unintended consequences have already appeared in Japan and Europe.

Serious doubt has been cast on the ability of central bankers to extend NIRP beyond current levels. Banning cash would make those plans much easier to implement. One solution to negative interest rates is to buy physical gold. But governments always use money laundering, drug dealing and terrorism as an excuse to keep tabs on honest citizens and deprive them of the ability to use money alternatives such as physical cash and gold.

When you start to see news articles about criminals using gold instead of cash, that’s a stalking horse for government regulation of gold. An article on the topic or criminals using gold appeared, in Bloomberg. This is one more reason to get your physical gold now, while you still can.

As if inflation, confiscation, and negative rates weren’t enough, the global elites are coordinating a new plan for global taxation. As usual, there’s a technical name for global taxation so non-elites won’t understand the plan. It’s called base erosion and profit shifting, or “BEPS.”

The BEPS project is being handled by the OECD and the G-20, with the IMF contributing technical support. If you’re interested in BEPS, there’s an entire website devoted to the global taxation plans and timetables. To paraphrase that famous line attributed to Trotsky, “you may not be interested in BEPS, but BEPS is interested in you.”

The global elite plan doesn’t stop there. There’s also the climate change agenda led by the United Nations. This agenda goes by the name United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The science [sic] of climate change is a sticky topic . . . a convenient platform for world money and world taxation. That’s because climate change does not respect national borders. If you have a global problem, then you can justify global solutions.

A global tax plan to pay for global climate change infrastructure with world money is the end game. Don’t think that climate change is unrelated to the international monetary system. Christine Lagarde almost never gives a speech on finance without mentioning climate change. The same is true for other monetary elites. They know that climate change is their path to global financial control. That’s the global elite plan. World money, world inflation and world taxation, with the IMF as the central bank of the world, and the G-20 Leaders as the Board of Directors. None of this is secret. It’s all hiding in plain sight. This will be playing out in the next few years. Full story: dailyreckoning.com

Comment: Jesus saves! If you are not in the ‘rapture’ right now you had better redeem the time and “study to show yourself approved of God, rightly dividing the Word of truth . . . to make your calling and election sure” (II Timothy 2:15; II Peter 1:10).

July 15, 2017 — Coverage of the Syrian war will be remembered as one of the most shameful episodes in the history of the American press . . . The United States has the power to decree the death of nations. It can do so with popular support because many Americans—and many journalists—are content with the official story.

Now, during the first summer of relative calm Aleppo residents have seen in over four years of grinding conflict, the city commonly referred as “the jewel of Syria” is once again rising from the ashes . . . Some few honest correspondents, unable to deny the local population’s spirit of hopefulness and zeal with which they undertake rebuilding projects, acknowledge that stability and normalcy have returned only after the last jihadists were expelled by the Syrian government and its allies . . .

China’s seen Globally as Gaining Ground on US

July 13, 2017 — ‘[A]ccording to a new report from the Pew Research Center which released results of a 38-nation survey Thursday afternoon. While the majority of those polled still correctly believe the United States is the world’s biggest economy, 12 nations—including Canada, Russia, and most of western Europe—believe China has the largest economy in the world.

‘Pew detected a dramatic shift; only six nations said Beijing possessed the world’s strongest economy when the question was asked between 2014 and 2016. Since then, the number of countries that view the United States as playing second fiddle to China has doubled. And more striking is the change that’s taken place in just the past year: Canada, Britain, Germany, Spain, and Italy all went from seeing America as the biggest player to viewing China as the top dog.’

Economic growth rates in the US are only half of what they were in the glory years and less than half of China’s growth rate . . . with no sign of picking up . . . Australia now believes China is the biggest player . . . Full story: foreignpolicy.com

Pentecost & Two Wave Loaves

Israel was an agrarian nation and lived by the cycles of Sun and Moon so that seedtime and harvest and appointed times of meeting with the Lord were decided by sunrise and new moons. Israel had seven annual appointed times of meeting:

 

  • Passover on Nisan 14.

  • Unleavened Bread shall be eaten for seven days from Nisan 15.
  • The Sheaf of the First fruits of Barley, the first ripe grain, was reaped after sunset which began Nisan 16. The offering of the wave-sheaf sanctified the whole harvest and typified the resurrection of Christ who rose from the dead on the very day the first-fruits were offered (Leviticus 23:9-14; Romans 11:16; I Corinthians 15:20).
    Israel's Seven Feasts

  • First fruits of the Wheat Harvest were offered “when the fiftieth Day of Pentecost was fully come” and consisted of two loaves baked with leaven. It solemnized the termination of the harvest season as the wave sheaf of barley had signaled its commencement (Exodus 34:22; Leviticus 23:15-21). The two loaves represent Christ’s Bride of all Ages as “we who are alive and remain” manifest that we are the Sons of God in the Pentecostal Jubilee of our resurrecting brethren.

  • The Feast of Trumpets on Tishri 1 marks the first day of the civil year (Leviticus 23:23-25). Israel’s two prophets will bring the Law of Moses with its statutes and ordinances to Israel’s remembrance (Malachi 4:4), and expound the mystery of the Seven Trumpet judgments over two thousand years of unbelief to awaken faith that will call the nation to fulfil the sixfold purpose of Gabriel’s instruction to Daniel and reconfirm the New Covenant on their Day of Atonement.

  • The Day of Atonement on Tishri 10 is when the nation will be born-again in one day (Leviticus 23:26-32; Isaiah 66:8).
  • The Feast of Tabernacles is the feast of gathering the bountiful blessings of the provenance of God that led to the joyous rebirth of the nation, 144,000 elect Israelites called to their Day of Atonement by the Feast of Trumpets are the Lord’s harvest. It commenced on Tishri 15 and extended for seven days followed by a sabbath on the eighth day. The first six days represent six thousand years in which man has laboured against sin; the seventh day represents the millennium, while the eighth day will be eternity in the new heavens and new earth (Leviticus 23:33-44).

 

Of the seven annual appointed times of meeting (Heb. Mow’ed) only the Passover’s Feast (Heb. chag) of Unleavened Bread (Exodus 12:14; Leviticus 23:4-8), the Feast (Heb. chag) of Weeks or Pentecost that is the First fruit of the Wheat Harvest, and the (Heb. chag) Feast of Ingathering or Tabernacles at year’s end, are actually feasts. Each event marks a milestone in the journey of Israel from Egyptian bondage and servitude to security and rest in the land of God’s promise to Abraham.

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

Whereas Israel came forth from Egyptian bondage under the blood of a natural lamb which they killed and ate, we came from bondage to the world and the things of the world under the shed Blood of the Word made flesh, the risen Lamb of God slain on Calvary in the stead of Adam and his fallen race. All who are truly under the Blood and born again “have eternal Life, and will not come into condemnation; but have passed from death unto Life” (John 5:24). As Israel ate and thereby became one with their Pascal lamb Christians feast upon and become one with the revealed Word for our day as signified by the Lord’s Supper.

Natural Israel is a shadow and type of Spiritual Israel, the Church, and these milestones of God’s provenance in Israel’s history foreshadow God’s program for the divine redemption of Adam’s race. Like Israel’s natural lamb our Kinsman Redeemer was slain at Passover to redeem the Old Testament saints, but principally Christ’s Bride—“God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect [resurrected and glorified]” (Hebrews 11:40). We are Sons, not servants—an election from all kindreds, colours and tongues of Adam’s race chosen by Jesus according to our revelation of and obedience to the present Truth” for our day. And called out from seven Church Ages by seven baptisms of the Holy Spirit, the antitype of the seven sabbaths of Israel’s Pentecostal Feast.

“When the Day of [the first] Pentecost had fully come” the Lord God spoke the Ten Commandments from Mount Sinai in an audible voice and Moses recited the statutes and ordinances he had received when he was with the Lord in the thick cloud on the Mount (Exodus 19:16 – 24:8). “Moses wrote all the Words of the Lord and early the next morning he built an altar and twelve pillars, and the young men offered burnt offerings and sacred peace offerings of oxen unto the Lord. Moses then took half of the blood and put it in basons, and half of the blood he sprinkled the altar. And he took the Book of the Covenant and read it before the people of Israel: and they said, All that the Lord has said we will do. And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the Covenant, which the Lord has made with you concerning all these Words” (Exodus 24:4-8).

Moses ascended the Mount forty days and forty nights for Divine communications and to receive two stone tables of the Law written with the finger of God. In the meantime the Israelites had broken the Covenant and fabricated a golden calf which Aaron expressly called “thy Elohim which brought you up out of Egypt;” and he called the feast “a feast to Jehovah” (Exodus 32:4-8, 17-19). Having just seen that “upon Egypt’s gods Jehovah executed judgments” (Numbers 33:4) what Israel yearned for was not the Egyptian idols but some visible symbol of the unseen Jehovah furnished by the cherubic emblem of the calf or ox. “Thus they changed their glory [and Head, God Himself], into the similitude of an ox that eats grass” (Psalm 106:20).

The Israelites transferred the rites of the Egyptian calf-god Mnevis’ feast at Heliopolis, boisterous revelry, dancing and offerings with which they were familiar, to Jehovah’s calf image. Acts 7:40-43, “Saying to Aaron, Make us gods to go before us: for as for this Moses, who brought us out of the land of Egypt, we know not what is become of him. And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice to the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.” Idolatry! Worse was to follow: “Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the Book of the prophets, O you house of Israel, have you offered Me slain beasts and sacrifices for the space of forty years in the wilderness? Yes, you took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which you made to worship: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon” (Amos 5:25-27).

The earliest of historians, Herodotus, informs us about the Hebrew cult of human sacrifice. He wrote: “The Hebrews sacrificed humans to their God Moloch” (Herodotus, Vol. II, p. 45).

God was prophesying the future transportation of the northern kingdom of Israel by Assyria because of the calves Jeroboam set up at Dan and Bethel to discourage his subjects from travelling to the Temple at Jerusalem for worship lest they be alienated from him. Like Aaron he said of the calves: “behold your gods, O Israel which brought you up out of Egypt” (I Kings 12:26-29). Calf worship breaks the second Commandment by worshipping the Lord God with an image or symbol, which is Rome’s sin to this very day. And when Moses saw the calf, and the people dancing without moral restraint he cast the tables out of his hands and broke them beneath the mount”.

What is here recorded at the inauguration of the Israel nation under the Old Covenant foreshadows its spiritual state and breach of Covenant and Law at Calvary. Then, “when the Day of Pentecost was fully come, suddenly there came a sound from heaven like a rushing mighty wind . . . and a hundred and twenty were all filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance”  (Acts 2:1-4). The inauguration of Christ’s Church, and Israel’s apostasy at the close of the dispensation of the Law foreshadows the apostasy of the churches in Laodicea, “For God has shut up all in unbelief, that He might have mercy upon all” (Romans 11:32). The Gentile churches end in apostasy and enter the tribulation after the first resurrection of the sleeping New Testament saints and the translation of “we who are alive and remain . . . when the Day of Pentecost has fully come [again]”; then the Lord will turn to an election of Israelites “in the time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7).

What Moses had communicated up until verse 8 was to be immediately observed at Mount Sinai and during the wilderness journey, while the wave sheaf and Feast of Pentecost could not be observed until the entrance to Canaan. Leviticus 23:9-22 contains instructions for the wave sheaf, which formed part of the feast of unleavened bread, and for the wave loaves at the feast of Pentecost.

On Nisan 14 the best first ripe sheaves of standing barley were selected and tied as Jesus was bound to the Cross, and on the evening of Nisan 15, three men, each with a sickle and basket, set to work. Foreshadowing Matthew 27:25 where all Israel swore “Messiah’s Blood be upon us and on our children,” the men first asked of the bystanders three times each of these questions: “Has the sun gone down?” “With this sickle?” “Into this basket?” “On this Sabbath?” (or first Passover-day), and, lastly, “Shall I reap?” Having each time been answered in the affirmative, they cut down barley to the amount of one ephah, about six gallons. This was threshed, parched, ground, and one omer, (a tenth of an ephah) of the flour, mixed with oil and frankincense, was waved before the Lord in the Temple at about 9.00am in the morning service on Nisan 16 (Leviticus 2:12-16). Thereafter the grain harvest commenced, as did the resurrection of the Old Testament saints, Jesus Christ having cleansed the heavenly sanctuary of their accumulated sins (Leviticus 23:9-14).

The Israelites were not to eat of their new corn until God’s part was first offered to Him; and we must always begin with God. Begin every day with Him, begin every meal with Him, begin every affair and business with Him. “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things will be added to you.” Not in the Temple, nor by the priest, but in the silence of the garden-tomb, lay the First Omer of the New Paschal Flour to be waved before the Lord. The waving of the omer of the first fruits for acceptance by the Lord blessed and consecrated the remainder of the harvest. The first fruit of the barley harvest represented Jesus Christ made sin for us, condemned and crucified, but waved before the Lord on the third day and acquitted, “He was raised again for our justification” (Romans 4:25).

As the Omer of flour from the first ripe sheaf of the harvest was to be offered on “the morrow after the weekly sabbath,” that is, on Sunday Nisan 16, the feast of Pentecost is always on a Sunday (Leviticus 23:15-16). The two wave-loaves at Pentecost were a thank-offering and memorial of Israel’s deliverance, appropriately terminated in the giving of the Law—just as, in the highest application, the Passover sacrifice of the Lord Jesus may be said to have been completed in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost.

In the third month (Nisan, Zif), Sivan, according to Jewish usage, the first day of that month—“the same day”—is added to mark the time more explicitly, that is, forty-five days after Egypt—one day spent on the mount (Exodus 19:3), one returning the people’s answer (Exodus 19:7, 8), three days of preparation, making the whole time fifty days from the first Passover to the promulgation of the Law. Hence the feast of Pentecost, that is, the fiftieth day, was the inauguration of the Old Testament Church, and the divine wisdom is apparent in the selection of the same reason for the institution of the New Testament Church (John 1:17; Acts 2:1).

I Corinthians 15:20, “Christ has been raised from the dead to become the first fruits of the Old Testament saints that slept [past tense].” Hebrews 11:39-40, “All of these, having obtained a good report through faith, [being under the blood of bulls and goats] received not the promise [of eternal inheritance by the Blood of Jesus Christ” (Hebrews 9:14-15)]. God having provided some better thing for us, [His Bride], that they without us should not be resurrected and glorified”.

As Attributes of the Logos we were accounted in Christ on Calvary: when He died we died in Him; and when He was raised, we raised in Him and can never come into condemnation (Romans 8:1-4; II Corinthians 5:13-21). Jesus had to redeem His Bride before He could redeem our servant nation, Israel. Thus in Matthew 27:50-53 we read, “When Jesus again cried out with a loud voice, He yielded up His [mortal] spirit, and the veil of the temple was rent in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split; and the tombs were opened; and many bodies of the [Old Testament] saints who had fallen asleep were raised, and accompanied Him out of Paradise in glorified flesh after His resurrection and entered the holy city, and appeared to many” (Acts 26:23; I Corinthians 15:23; Colossians 1:18; Revelation 1:5).

In discussing the resurrection a Brother noted, “No man knows the day or the hour.” This is true and considering calendar changes, Jews may be keeping sabbath on a Friday or Sunday and know it not. But God is omniscient and cannot change His ways (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8), thus Matthew 27:50-53 set the type for the resurrection and body change of Christ’s Bride. “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).

This is certain because Israel’s seven annual appointed times of meeting are fixed by sunrise and new moons, and “while the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease” (Genesis 8:22). As the natural types the Spiritual the harvest of the first ripe grain, barley, typed the death and resurrection or harvest of the antitypical Lamb of God from Nisan 14 to 16. As the first fruit Jesus was the earnest that the whole of the harvest will follow: the remainder of the barley crop of Old Testament saints that slept entered into His resurrection and witnessed to many in Old Jerusalem over forty days. “Inasmuch as death came by man [when he took sinful Eve back to himself and forfeited his dominion to Satan], the resurrection of the dead also came by Man [who “bruised Satan’s head” and is establishing a Kingdom which shall never be destroyed (Daniel 2:44)]. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ shall all be made to live. But each in his own [dispensation or Church Age]: Christ the first fruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at His [second or (Gk.) parousia Coming” (I Corinthians 15:20-23; Romans 8:29; Colossians 1:18).

Sign of Christ's parousia ComingWe live in the days of Christ’s ‘parousia’ which commenced when He opened the Seven Seals above Mount Sunset on about March 8, 1963 (Revelation 10:1-4). Brother Branham called this “the uniting time and sign” of Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming and said, “These signs given by the Lord, is given only to believers. The unbeliever never sees it . . . Titus, this great Roman general had to unite his armies together and come around, after these Jews had rejected the God-given sign of the time to them (Luke 21:20). That’s the time that Titus united his armies together, and come to take the city. First there had to be a uniting of God’s people (so-called) against the Word of God, before that the nation could unite itself against God’s people . . . Notice, they’re right now uniting. You say, “Brother Branham, is that true?” They’re coming to the Battle of Armageddon; exactly what they will do (Revelation 16:12-16). See? And they’re uniting for that right now. That’s why we got the UN and everything we have. The Western World’s uniting against the Eastern World, communism and so forth, it’s all uniting together. The churches are uniting together. Everything seems to be uniting. Uniting, uniting themselves together, we see that . . . God is uniting His Bride. She is coming together, from the East and the West, and the North and South. There is a uniting time, and that’s on right now. What is She uniting for? The Rapture. Amen! God’s getting Her ready. Yes sir, uniting! What is She uniting with? With the Word! “For all heavens and earth will pass away, but My Word shall never pass away.” She’s uniting Herself with THUS SAITH THE LORD regardless of what any denomination or anybody else says. She’s uniting Herself. She’s getting ready. Why? She is the Bride. That’s right. And She’s united Herself with Her Bridegroom, see, and the Bridegroom is the Word. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us” (The Uniting Time and Sign, p. 9:37, 45, 89, 91).

I Thessalonians 4:14-18, “If we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also that sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him. For this we say unto you by the Word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the ‘parousia’ of the Lord shall not precede them who are asleep. For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the Voice of the Archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words”.

Our ‘rapture’ is the threefold PROCESS that commenced in 1963 with the “shout” of I Thessalonians 4:16 (Matthew 25:6). This was William Branham’s Message that will turn the hearts of God’s children back to the faith of their apostolic fathers (Malachi 4; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7), and reveal the mysteries of the Seven Thunders in Revelation 10, which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals. These divinely revealed ‘mystery truths’ will literally turn the hearts of the children to their Pentecostal fathers. This PROCESS will be completed when Israel’s Seventh Trump sounds one Nisan 14 (I Corinthians 15:52; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 11:15). The world will experience an earthquake unprecedented since men were upon earth (exposing the unscriptural folly of pre-Adamites and the evolution of species). Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth’s crust will sink beneath the Pacific. Islands and mountains will vanish as this convulsion of nature shakes not earth only but the heavens also, raining hailstones of a hundredweight—by an atmospheric discharge arising from the tension of physical extremes of heat and cold and their conflict —“as it was in the days of Noah.” The sun will become black as sackcloth of hair, and extraterrestrial tectonic activity will turn the moon blood red (Haggai 2:6-7; Hebrews 12:26-27; Revelation 6:12-17; 11:19; 16:18-21; 18:21-24).

“When Jesus ascended on High, He led a host [of Old Testament saints] who had been captives of death, captive of eternal Life, and [when the Day of Pentecost had fully come] He gave gifts of a five-fold ministry unto men” (Ephesians 4:8).

Brother Branham said, “Three things happens. A shout, a voice, a trumpet, has to happen before Jesus appears. Now, a shout . . . Jesus does all three of them when He’s descending. A shout, what is the shout? It’s the Message going forth, first, the living Bread of Life bringing forth the Bride” (The Rapture, p. 27:130).

When Jesus descended from on High he said, “Jesus comes from Heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His [New Testament] saints, and the Bible says that “the Heavens was empty for the space of a half hour” (The Sardisean Church Age, p. 348:96; I Thessalonians 4:14). This took place in 1963, yet as it was in the days of His flesh 2.3 billion nominal Christians know nothing about it—54 years after the fact! According to Revelation 5:5-14 and 8:1, “after Jesus had opened the Seven Seals there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour” because heaven was empty. The mystery of God is revealed on earth, “In the days of the voice of the seventh angel, William Branham, when he begins to deliver His end-time Message, the mystery of God should be finished, precisely as God declared to His servants the prophets” (Revelation 10:7). The greatest of all revelations is the Supreme Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ who is the mystery of the One Person of God revealed; the Author and Beginner of the New Creation as explained in Newsletter 979.

When Jesus descended from on High to Sunset Mountain in 1963 John witnessed His parousia in visions during his incarceration on Patmos Island between AD95-96. The seventh angel Brother Branham was caught up to complete a constellation of the theophanies of the previous six angels to show Jesus Christ as Son of man and Judge in the Pillar of Cloud foretold in Daniel 7:9-14, John 5:17, I Corinthians 13:10, Revelation 1:13-16 and 10:1-4. “I saw another mighty Angel descend from heaven, robed in a cloud, with a rainbow over His head, and His face was like the sun, and His legs like pillars of fire: and He held a little Book open in his hand. He set His right foot [in judgment] on the [Judaeo-Roman beast that rose up from] the sea [multitudes of people], and His left foot on the [Judaeo-Protestant beast that rose up from the sparsely populated united States or] earth, and cried with a loud voice like the roar of a lion. And as He shouted, Seven Thunders uttered their voices. And when the Seven Thunders had spoken, I was about to write; but I heard a Voice from heaven saying, Seal up what the seven thunders have spoken, and do not write it”.

Jesus prophesied, “The conditions of Noah’s days will repeat in the ‘parousia’ of the Son of man” (Matthew 24:37). Before God destroyed the world that then was He revealed Himself in Enoch, a man whose testimony was that he pleased God by his perfect walk of faith. Enoch, who was called out from the seventh generation of the first Adam also prophesied, “the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all the ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him” (Jude 14-15; Hebrews 11:5-6).

Like Enoch Brother Branham pleased God, and like the created Man in Genesis 18 he veiled the fullness of the Spirit and “revealed Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever” by the Messianic sign of Hebrews 4:12, “discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart,” and performed “more abundant works” (Luke 17:28-30; John 14:12). His Message forewarned and foreran the destruction of the world that now is.

Malachi 4:5-6, “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and dreadful day of the Lord comes [in the tribulation of Daniel’s Seventieth Week after the close of the Christian dispensation of grace]. He shall turn the heart of the [apostolic] fathers to the children.” [This Elijah was John the Baptist who introduced Jesus’ first or (Gk.) ‘erchomai’ Coming in Malachi 3:1 (Matthew 11:7-14; 17:12). The fruit of John’s ministry was the conversion of the Pentecostal fathers three years after his death when the Church was inaugurated on the Day of Pentecost. God’s servant nation having rejected the Lord (John 8:35), their ministry was directed to God’s children—elect sons and daughters of Adam’s race regardless of nationality]. 2,000 years have passed since John the Baptist, and “the great and dreadful day of the Lord” has not yet come. It is surely “at the doors”.

Malachi’s prophecy next turns to another Elijah 2,000 years later. This Elijah was William Branham, 1909-1965 (Malachi 6b; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 1:1; 3:14; 10:7). His ministry introduced Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming in the holy convocation of the antitype of the fiftieth day of Israel’s Pentecostal Feast after the 49 days, seven weeks or seven Church Ages. This man William Branham was “a prophet as thoroughly vindicated, or even more thoroughly vindicated than was any prophet in all the ages from Enoch to this day, because this man will of necessity have the capstone prophetic ministry, and God will show him forth. He won’t need to speak for himself, God will speak for him by the voice of the sign. Amen” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 329). His commission was to call an election out from Laodicea, the seventh generation from the last Adam, and “turn the heart of the children back to the faith once delivered to their apostolic fathers.” These “children” were under the spirit of Laodicea in denominational churches which, like Israel at the time of Christ’s first Coming, have rejected the Word and are “crucifying to themselves the Son of God afresh” (II Timothy 4:4; Hebrews 6:6; Revelation 3:17-20). Oh, they love the trinity, “are materially rich and increased with goods but know not that spiritually they are wretched and miserable, bankrupt of faith, blind to God’s Word and naked of the Blood” (Revelation 3:17). Now speaking as God, Malachi threatens “lest I come and smite the earth with a curse”.

This takes us to Malachi 4:1-3 and the consummation of Life at Armageddon. “For behold, the day comes, burning like a furnace, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble; and the day that comes shall burn them up, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But for you who fear My Name the Sun of righteousness will arise with healing in its beams; and you will go forth [into the millennium] leaping like calves from the stall. And you shall tread down the wicked; for they will be [nuclear] ashes under the soles of your feet, on the day when I act, says the Lord of hosts”.

This end-time Message is to separate the elect from the world and the things of the World unto their Husband the Word, and only Him; “For the perfecting of the saints for the work of the ministry [of reconciliation], for the building up of the Body of Christ: till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Ephesians 4:12-13; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:52).

Leviticus 23:15-22, “Count for yourselves from the day after the sabbath, from the day when you brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven complete sabbaths: You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh sabbath; then you shall offer a new grain offering to the Lord. You shall bring from your homes two loaves of bread for a wave offering, made of two tenths of an ephah: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baked with leaven; as first fruits to the Lord. [This does not imply that every householder was to present two loaves prepared expressly for holy purposes; they were to be made for the daily food of a household]. Along with the bread you shall present seven lambs without blemish of the first year, and one young bullock, and two rams: they shall be for a burnt offering to the Lord, with their grain offering, and their drink offerings, an offering made by fire, of sweet aroma to the Lord. You shall offer one male goat for a sin offering and two lambs of the first year for a sacrifice of peace offerings. The priest shall then wave them with the bread of the first fruits for a wave offering before the Lord, with the two lambs: they shall be holy to the Lord for the priest. On this same day you shall proclaim that it is a holy convocation to you. You shall do no servile work therein: it is to be a statute forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.”

“When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap to the very corners of your field, nor gather the gleanings after your harvest: you shall leave it for the poor, and for the stranger: I am the Lord your God.” This is a repetition of Leviticus 19:9-10; those who are truly sensible of the mercy they received from God, will show mercy to the poor without grudging.

James 1:18, “Of His own will God gave us new birth by the Word of truth, so that we might be a kind of first fruits in His Family.” But after the harvest you are to leave some grain for those poor in revelation and those unfamiliar with the faith to glean liberally during the tribulation from the revelations you have shared and retain their names on the Book of Life with salvation through the witness of your life. Such are the foolish virgins, Fifth Seal Israelites, those who have been good and kind to the Bride, those martyred for refusing the mark or service to the beast, and those of Adam’s race who died before the age of accountability.

The saints under the Old Testament were represented by the harvest of barley—its inferiority to wheat marked by the offering of barley in the ordeal of jealousy (Numbers 5:15; Hosea 3:2). New Testament saints, Christ’s Bride, Israel’s Queen, are represented by the harvest of wheat, the most noble of grains. We are ready to be offered as the finished product—grain prepared for food—two loaves of bread baked with leaven and made with flour of the first fruits sifted fine, declaring “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” This new wave offering represents the Alpha Bride born of the apostolic faith and the Omega Bride born of the same faith restored by the prophet of Malachi 4:5, 6b (Matthew 17:11), “that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost” (Romans 15:16). The Alpha and Omega Bride are identical as God showed Brother Branham in a vision, dressed in the costume of every nation of Adam’s race, each in turn marching in step with the Word (“The Masterpiece“).

The two identical loaves are comprised of Israelites and Gentiles born of the original Seed (Luke 8:11; Genesis 17:5; 22:18). “For Christ is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of partition between us . . . to make in Himself one new man, so making peace; and through the Cross reconcile both in one Body to God . . . carefully joined together in Christ and growing into a temple that is holy in the Lord, in whom you are also built up together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit” (Ephesians 2:14-22) I Corinthians 12:12-13).

Finished Body of ChristThe day after the earthquake sinks Los Angeles we will witness to our loved ones and all we meet as Jesus witnessed to the departed souls following His crucifixion. The following day we will be waved before the Lord as Christ was waved on Nisan 16, two days after the earthquake that marked the breach in God’s relation with Israel (Daniel 9:26; I Peter 3:19-20; Jude 5-6). Our acceptance will signify His consecration of the whole harvest of the Alpha and Omega Ages and the PART-Word saints of the seven Church Ages in-between. Since we are “baked with the leaven” of sinful flesh we cannot be offered as a burnt offering, an assurance Christ’s Bride will not go through the tribulation. But the well-known corrupting influence of leaven ceases as soon as the lump is baked. As the former rain began to fall on that first Day of Pentecost, the latter rain will fall on this first Day of Pentecost, initiating the resurrection of the sleeping saints and the manifestation of the living Sons of God. Then on the fiftieth day we shall be “changed and caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: so shall we forever be with the Lord”.

The two wave loaves were seven palms in length and four in breadth, signifying “the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” in His Bride of all Ages redeemed by the seven-fold Spirit of God under the first Four Seals. They were made the evening prior to, or in the event of a sabbath preceding, two evenings before the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. This shows (in type) that His end-time Bride with the perfect interpretation of the Word (I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7) was fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary, for redemption was over at the close of the Laodicean Church Age in 1963. Whereas the saints of Pentecost and the Church Ages required Christ’s mediation for their ignorance of the fullness of the Word, when He opened and revealed the Seven Seals, all seven sabbaths or Church Ages were fulfilled and there was no further delay for mediation (Revelation 10:6), yet we were not born-again. This proves that our dispensation is the holy convocation typed by the fiftieth day of the feast when all servile work is prohibited. With “the true sayings of God”  (Revelation 19:9; 22:10) we do not need mediation for ignorance, and as we are all members of one Body, the Church Age saints cannot be raised and glorified without us. Brother Branham said, “These people who died in here are depending and waiting on us.” Let us not keep them waiting.

One loaf was given to the high priest typing Christ the Principal Man, the other to the ordinary priests or seven shepherds who officiated during His absence. It was eaten that same night in the temple, and no fragment was suffered to remain till the morning, signifying that when we go Home we will not leave so much as a hoof left behind (Exodus 10:26). Praise the Lord! Then the Angel of the Lord will reveal Himself to Israel in the office of Son of man (Revelation 7:1-2). nl983.htm

Genetically Modified Bread given Green Light by Vatican

Papal Keys

July 10, 2017 — Cardinal Robert Sarah, has stated that Catholic priests can use genetically modified bread during the Eucharist—but not ‘gluten-free’ bread . . . “It is altogether forbidden to use wine of doubtful authenticity or provenance . . . Catholics believe turns bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ” . . . the OK to the use of GM unleavened bread . . . encapsulates everything which is antithetical to basic, informed wisdom—never mind spiritual guidance. To deliberately distort the composition of the genetic code of life, is to go against the principle of reverence for the species. Doubly so since this is only undertaken to increase the profits of the corporations that patent the engineered plants. The cardinal then states that such bread should only be made by people “distinguished by their integrity.”

A great swathe of the world’s activities are run from the Vatican, in its link-up with Washington DC and The City of London. None of which are government or citizen controlled. They are tax-free ‘corporations,’ boasting their own private police forces and independent status from the rest of society.

Here is where the hierarchical pseudo-elite devise their ‘new world order’ ambitions. Their plans to take control over all aspects of planetary life. They work closely with the international banking cabal and with heads of state. They comprise the top end of the 0.2% pyramid elite whose ethos is to dominate within the construct of a totalitarian world, in which all those ‘below’ act as their minions . . . Throughout the world 70 to 80% of individuals are against the use of GMO in the food chain. They perceive, in spite of mega bucks worth of corporate attempts to sell the GM message, that this laboratory inspired experiment is a dangerous and crass distortion of nature . . .

Thomas ChiniquyComment: “Je dois porter le ‘Bon Dieu’ demain a un malade,” dit le pretre a sa servante; “mais il n’y en a plus dans le tabernacle.” In plain English: “I must carry the ‘good God’ to-morrow to a sick man,” says the priest to his servant girl. “But there are no more particles in the tabernacle. Make some small cakes that I may consecrate them to-morrow.” And the obedient domestic takes some wheat flour, for no other kind of flour is fit to make the god of the Pope. A mixture of any other kind would make the miracle of “transubstantiation” a great failure. The servant girl accordingly takes the dough, and bakes it between two heated irons, on which are graven the following figures, C.H.S. When the whole is well baked, she takes her scissors and cuts those wafers, which are about four or five inches large, into smaller ones of the size of an inch, and respectfully hands them over to the priest. The Egyptians worshipped God under the form of crocodiles and calves. The Greeks made their gods of marble or of gold. The Persian made the sun his god. The Hottentots make their gods with whalebone, and go far through the storms to adore them. The Church of Rome makes her god out of a piece of bread! Is this not Idolatry? From the year 1833, the day that God in His mercy opened my eyes, my servant had used more than a bushel of wheat flour, to make the little cakes which I had to convert into the Christ of the Mass. Some of these I ate; others I carried about with me for the sick, and others I placed in the tabernacle for the adoration of the people (Fifty Years in the Church of Rome by Charles Chiniquy, a priest who became a Christian).


US may soon face an Apocalyptic Seismic Event

gigantic geological rift

April 11, 2016 — An ever increasing number of earthquakes in the United States may soon bring the country to ruin, as geologists, journalists and politicians say. The University of Washington has already presented seismological charts showing a gigantic geological rift that stretches across the central states of the US from north to south, and marks the region of a possible split of the North America continent in two. As it has been reported by geologists, for the first time this anomaly was discovered in 1960’s, when scientists found a strange underground rupture along the Lake Superior that would run south . . . Following studies showed that this anomaly was stretching across the whole continent . . . the relationship between fracking and the mounting number of earthquakes has been brought to light by the US Geological Survey, that would note that the number of earthquakes in the US has increased drastically over the last six years. In fact, it expects an abrupt increase in the number of seismic events in some regions of the country where fracking is used including Oklahoma, California, Texas, Kansas, Colorado, Ohio, Alabama and New Mexico.

[Comment: Prophesying the sinking of Los Angeles Brother Branham said, “Nations are breaking. The world is falling apart. Fifteen-hundred-mile chunk of it, three or four-hundred-miles wide, will sink, hundred . . . or maybe forty miles down into that great fault out yonder, one of these days, and waves will shoot plumb out to the state of Kentucky. And when it does, it’ll shake the world so hard that everything on top of it will shake down” (A Thinking Man’s Filter, p. 25:145).

“God set the moon to watch the sea. And when the moon begins to turn its back, when the earth turns away, here comes the tide in. But when he wakes up, the next morning, looks back this a way, the tide runs back to its place again. It’s a watchman.”

“Oh,” you say, “that’s just on the seashore.”

No. That’s right up here in Arizona, plumb back over in the state of Kentucky, wherever you dig a hole down in the ground far enough to find salt water. You’ll find out, when that tide goes out, that salt water goes down in the pipe. And when the tide comes in, it also raises, hundreds of miles from the seashore” (A Paradox, #19:1, par. 98-99)].

I believe links in this article claim that not only does California float on the Ocean but that it is possible that the ocean extends underground to Nevada. Also view youtube.com.

[The natural types the spiritual]: But the split in the United States is not being predicted by the USGS alone, since the recent seismic political events aggravated the growing discord within the US society in the wake of the US presidential campaign.

Western journalists are sounding the alarm—America’s youth is now fascinated with the concepts of socialism and communism. According to the poll conducted by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (VOC), half of all Americans under 35 years would love to be represented by a socialist president . . . To date, the petitions on the separation from the US have been filed by a total of 40 states. Texas that is viewed as the last bastion of conservatism has already gathered more than 100 thousand signatures under its petition for obtaining the status of an independent state. Behind it are Louisiana, Florida, North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee.

Therefore, aside from the major geological rift that may soon hit the US, there’s a deep social and political rift to be observed, which may, in case of loss of all confidence in the existing political system result in a major outbreak of violence. Full story: journal-neo.org

Comment: Brother Branham prophesied these natural and spiritual phenomena years ago. The last Church Age was Laodicea (1909-1963) which means “people’s rights” or communism: this is the spirit ruling the world today. The one way of avoiding its curse is to be born-again and a written epistle of the Message of God’s Prophet through a clear revelation of the seven thunders of Revelation 10 which is the mystery of the unwritten Seventh Seal.

Laodicea was one of the most politically important and financially prospering cities in Asia Minor. Frequent earthquakes finally caused its complete abandonment. Laodicea was so wealthy that although overthrown by an earthquake in the reign of Nero in AD62, it quickly recovered, and from its own resources soon assumed its pristine glory. This historic type from the East will repeat in the West:

Laodicea is a woman’s name, and America is a woman’s nation. It formed the point where three roads converged and met, just like America: religion, politics, and demonic power. Like ancient Laodicea, the united States will be struck by “a great earthquake of a magnitude unprecedented since man was upon earth” (Revelation 16:18). This will mark the close of the Gentile dispensation. After a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit this little hunted and persecuted group of Christ’s end-time Bride will go to be with Jesus. The US mainland will be invaded and briefly garrisoned. Satan will be cast down to earth and incarnate the pope. He will activate the federation of world religions set up by Vatican II to unite as a bulwark against Judaeo-Communism. Having restored peace (Revelation 13:4) he will be acclaimed president of the Anglo-Zionist one world government he once offered Jesus (Matthew 4:8-9). In covenant with the Jewish banksters Rome will refinance the US dollar with gold backing (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:11-18).

In the united States the (once) Protestant churches will unite with the state and after the midst of Daniel’s Seventieth Week the US military will force the mark of the beast, Rome’s Babylonian trinity of gods, on pain of death (Revelation 13:15-18).

Judaeo-Communism always follows Judaeo-Catholicism so Jewry will re-communise Russia when Vatican City State breaks her covenant (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:17). This calculated ‘blowback’ from the Neocon-led US invasion and coup of the Ukraine and NATO’s trade and economic sanctions against Russia deployed by the enemy of God and man ensures control of both sides to every dispute, and as in martial arts, redirects the superior power of an opponent against itself (Genesis 3:15).

In Revelation 17 and 18 there are two Babylons: one is the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church; the other is the Jews’ Babylon “by whose sorceries all nations are deceived.” This is the unelected ‘Fourth Estate‘ (so-called): Hollywood Los Angeles and the media, whose surreal psychological warfare manipulates the minds of billions with disinformation, misinformation, ‘fake news’ and propaganda in film, media, entertainment and education more effectually than does the religion, authority, laws, guns and the will of electors in the three democratically recognized estates. Brother Branham said: “Our nation is not secure. We’ve thought we were. So did the Babylonian Kingdom think so, but all the time there was a wicked nation working. And there’s been a wicked nation working, until now we know that they’re ahead of us, and we’re at their mercy” (The Handwriting on the Wall, #14:7, p. 14:107).


Mine Side of the Story

Adolf Hitler

Few people realize just how popular Adolf Hitler actually was, prior to World War II, not just within Germany, but also throughout greater Europe. By 1935, after just two years in power, it had become clear to the world that the atrocity stories about Germany were baseless. The Jewish boycott effort had failed; Hitler had renounced any claims to the disputed Alsace-Lorraine region (France); and the rapid economic, cultural and social recovery of Germany was self-evident. Monarchs, Prime Ministers, politicians, clergymen, artists and poets from across Europe were publicly singing the praises of ‘The Fuhrer.’ Even some Americans came to admire Hitler from afar. Germany was a depressed, demoralized and ransacked country when Hitler assumed control in 1933. However, in just four years’ time, a 33% unemployment rate was brought down to essentially full employment. Once not worth the paper it was printed on, the German Mark became the most stable currency in the world. Germany under Hitler also experienced a cultural and moral rebirth that even its former enemies—the ones who had plunged her into despair following the cruel and unusual post-World War I Treaty of Versailles—now marvelled at Germany’s resurgence . . .

A Question on Daniel’s Seventieth Week

Deuteronomy 29:26-29, “They went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods whom they knew not, and whom He had not given them: and the anger of the Lord was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this Book: and the Lord rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day. The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the Words of this Law”.

Leviticus 26:18, “And if after all these things you will still not obey Me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins”.

In response to Newsletter 981 a subscriber wrote: “It appears from the text below, that you, et .al, see Daniels’ 70 Week nation as a time period rather than a recognition of the Jewish nation established when the captives returned from Babylon . . . Thus it would also appear that you hold to the futurist’s ‘gap’ theory?”

Thanking him for writing I replied:

Daniel's 70 WeeksDaniel’s Seventy Weeks constitute a definite ‘time period’ of 490 of prophetic years: the sum total of God’s favour toward Israel as a nation, commencing 536BC to the restoration of the Kingdom in the millennium (Daniel 9:24). This period is divided into three definite ‘time periods.’ The whole is overlaid by another definite ‘time period’ from Nebuchadnezzar’s investiture of Jerusalem to the consummation of life, described as four undefined ‘time periods’ of Gentile dominion over Judah and Jerusalem. Furthermore, from the Day of Pentecost to the Day of the Lord we have a second definite ‘time period’ encompassing seven undefined ‘time periods,’ followed by yet another definite and defined ‘time period’ “about the space of half an hour”.

It is important to note that God sent Shalmaneser V and Sargon II to defeat and dissolve the northern kingdom of Israel because it had adopted trinitarian worship. Then when the southern kingdom of Judah adopted trinitarianism God had His servant King Nebuchadnezzar raze His temple, and take the Judeans to a lifetime’s captivity in Babylon. These seventy years were based upon the sabbatical years the Israelites neglected to observe (Leviticus 25:2-6; 26:18, 21,24, 28, 34-35, 43; II Chronicles 36:20-21; Jeremiah 25:11; 29:10; Daniel 9:2-15). The above diagram illustrates the fulfilment of Daniel’s Seventy Weeks with dates aligned to scripture showing ‘time periods’ in weeks of years, thus 7 x 7 or 49 years, 7 x 62 or 434 years, at which point Messiah was “cut off” when “all the people declared His blood be on us and on our children” (Daniel 9:26; Matthew 23:33-36; 27:25). 49 + 434 = 483 years, leaving one ‘time period’ of 7 years outstanding from the ‘time period’ of 490 years, which, when it is fulfilled will be the sum total of His dealings with Israel prior to the restoration of the Kingdom and usher in the millennium (Isaiah 9:7; 65:17-25; Daniel 9:24f).

When the Israelites as a nation murdered God manifest in virgin-born flesh to play the part of Adam’s KINSMAN Redeemer they separated or “cut off” the nation from God. Israel’s high priest Caiaphas, who plotted the deicide (John 11:49-52), was the sole mediator between God and the nation; his apostasy severed the relationship. As the sole Person of God creating Himself a part of creation (Revelation 3:14) Jesus Christ was the last Adam, the KINSMAN Redeemer for the first Adam and his fallen race, and the first in the new creation of God-men—each born of the Spoken Word like the first Adam. As Paul explains in Ephesians 1, God’s purpose of being is to unfold and declare Himself in the flesh of His glorified Family; not a second of third person but “ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands.” As Jesus Christ He is the Beginner and Author of this new creation.

In I Timothy 2:5-6 Paul explained, “There is one God, [not two or three], and one mediator between God and men [plural], the man Christ Jesus; Who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” The Judaeo-Roman Catholic church impersonates Israel’s pre-Christian Temple worship and the Roman pontiff impersonates Israel’s high priest. Popes in succession pervert God’s unchanging Word claiming “There is one mediator between God and man [singular],” that man is VICARIVS FILII DEI (Vicar or substitute for the Son of God), presuming to be the Holy Spirit.

Daniel’s sixty-ninth week ended with Israel’s cruel murder of Messiah, and the Christian dispensation followed as Isaiah 65:1-16 prophesied. Therein the name “Jew” has long been an execration (Jeremiah 29:22). “You will leave your name [Jew] as a curse among My chosen ones [Israelite and Gentile Christians]: for the Lord God will slay you [Israelites], and call His servants by another name [Christian]” (Acts 11:26). The Christian dispensation will extend from Pentecost until the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trump and Seventh Vial marked by the sinking of Los Angeles. After a month or so, mainland USA will be invaded.

Three days after the close of the Christian dispensation the first resurrection will commence along with the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (typed in Leviticus 23 and Matthew 27:50-53). The final seven-year ‘time period’ will be divided in two. Following Israel’s utter defeat (Isaiah 13:6:16; 6:9-16; Zechariah 14:2; Revelation 16:19, etc.,) and the mass exodus of non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews, two Israelite prophets will minister for three and a half years to call out an election of 144,000 from among blood Israelites, who, no longer welcome in the Muslim lands of their exile will have returned to the Land of their Covenant for redemption.

Israeli imposters will return to their former hosts, England, Europe and the USA: Russia will be re-communised. The coup d’état in the Ukraine by Zionist-ruled United States, ongoing US and Israeli interference within Russia, failed bloody adventures in Georgia, Chechnya and Azerbaijan, NATO’s embrace of former soviets encircling and threatening Russia, US belligerence against North Korea, China, Iran, (Pakistan, Venezuela, Bolivia, Brazil), and the bloodshed across North Africa to Iraq and Afghanistan) demonstrate the elders of Zion are apprised of Bible prophecy. Netanyahu and Israeli leaders have acknowledged the statistics in Jewish encyclopaedias show that historically Jews are non-Semitic; their ancestry is Edomite, Hittite, Canaanite and Khazar. There is not now nor has there ever been a Jewish race. They have accepted the verdict of Israeli historian and geneticist, professor Eran Elhaik of Johns Hopkins University in a study published in the journal Genome Biology and Evolution on December 5, 2012, that claimed European Jews (Ashkenazim) are not Semitic (Hebrew) people but are descendants of Khazarian Turkic tribes. This revelation by a fellow Jew struck the very core of the Zionists’ myth that ancestors of European Jews were expelled from historic Palestine by the Goyim armies.

Forcing Rome's trinity on Christian martyrsThe Judaeo-Roman Universal Church, having confirmed her covenant with the international banksters and their black nobility (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:11-18) will refinance the US dollar with gold backing and rule over the Anglo-Zionist one world government. America’s apostate (once) Protestant church will unite with the state to form an image unto the beast, and her blooded military will force the “mark of the beast” the Babylonian trinity introduced in AD325 at the First Nicaea Council, just as Imperial Rome and later the black nobility of the Holy Roman Empire forced her trinity through the Dark and Middle Ages, killing 68 million Christian martyrs. This will be the great tribulation, also called “Jacob’s trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7).

In the midst of this last week of years Israel’s prophets will be killed and lie four days in the street of Jerusalem, then resurrect and ascend to heaven. Jewry and their black nobility, the Khazar-intermarried royal and aristocratic houses of England and Europe will break their agreement with Vatican City State and the United States of America transferring their loyalty to a re-communised Russia. Then they will annihilate Rome and the USA with nuclear fire as prophesied by Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Jesus and William Branham (Revelation 16:19b-21; 17:16; 18:8-20). The Prophet said, “the last and seventh vision [of my 1933 apocalypse] was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 322:3). In Revelation 13:14, we learn that the Judaeo-Roman beast spreads his influence through the Judaeo-Roman Protestant image which was built for him through Vatican II. The image that is made is a world-wide ecumenical council, wherein all the organized churches will get together with the Roman Catholics (they are confederating now). This union will come in order to stop the power of communism after the sinking of Los Angeles and the devastation of the US west coast and many coastlands, collapsing the US dollar, global currencies and the world economy. But since communism like Nebuchadnezzar has been raised up to burn the flesh of the harlot, Rome will be overcome and destroyed in the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week. Take note that everywhere the Romish church went, communism followed. It has to be that way. Communism is not your only enemy. It is the Catholic Church also, and even more so. Protestantism and Catholicism produced communism by selling the Word for the world as the Jewish church sold Joseph.

With respect to scepticism concerning “the futurist’s ‘gap’ theory,” the 490 years of Daniel 9:24-27 derive from 490 years of Israel’s violation of the sabbatical years prescribed by God over 850 years of their occupation of the Promised Land under the national covenant of Sinai, leaving a ‘gap’ of 360 years. Also, from the birth of Abraham to the Exodus and the birth of the Israel Nation we find 15 ‘gap’ years. And from Exodus to the foundation of the Temple (Acts 13:18-21; I Kings 6:1, 37) we find a further 93 ‘gap’ years which are explained in “Israel, God’s Timepiece.” Were we to examine the genealogy of Messiah in Matthew 1 and Luke 3 we would see many ‘gap’ years for which there is an understanding.

The greatest reproach to an Israelite is to be exiled from the land of the Covenant. Such excommunication is the most severe punishment God inflicts upon the people of Israel (Deuteronomy 4:25-40; 28:36, 63-68; 29:28). With “His rough breath” of judgment He blew Israel and Judah into exile for chastisement and purification (Isaiah 27:8-9). He does not exterminate Israel as He exterminates His enemies (Matthew 18:21-35).

Daniel’s Seventy weeks of years apply to God’s dealings with Israel, the sons of Jacob, not ‘Jews,’ as a nation. The first 483 years of His dealings began with the going forth of the command of His servant King Cyrus to restore and rebuild Jerusalem, and ended with their crucifixion of Messiah. In His mercy the Lord delayed the manifestation of the first Trumpet judgment by forty years before sending His servant, Roman General Titus to cause the now blasphemous sacrifice of animals to cease, destroy the city, raze “the Jews’ house” that was once His temple, and banish Judeans from the city.

The Christian Church was inaugurated on the Day of Pentecost, and outside the Trumpet judgments God has not dealt with the Israelites as a nation since Calvary. Under the New Covenant Jesus Messiah “has magnified the Law and made it honourable” as prophesied in Isaiah 42:21 and fulfilled in Matthew 5:17-30 (Genesis 9:27 = Isaiah 54:1-5 = Zechariah 9:10; Deuteronomy 32:21; Psalm 2:8; Isaiah 11:10; 42:1 – 43:28; 49; Malachi 4:11). Not until after the close of the Christian dispensation and the resurrection and translation of the Church (Christ’s mainly Gentile Bride) will He turn back to His servant nation of 144,000 elect Israelites who will all be born-again in one day as described in the above references from Isaiah (Amos 9:11-12; Acts 15:14-19; Zechariah 4; Matthew 24:29-31; Luke 21:24-32; Romans 11:19-32; Revelation 11:1-13). He can’t work conflicting covenants—Law and grace—in one dispensation, and Israelites live mainly in the Muslim lands of North Africa and the Middle East, still trying to obey the Law, ignorant of the New Covenant. God can only speak with them as a NATION through the ministry of the two covenant prophets of Scripture (Deuteronomy 18:15-18; I Peter 1:20-21) who will show them whence they have fallen, introduce them to the New Testament and “the present Truth.” He must also display a sign in the heavens (Ezekiel 42:3; Zechariah 14:4-5).

The Old and the New Testaments clearly state that God cannot renew His dealings with Israel and fulfil Daniel’s Seventieth Week “until the full number of elect Gentiles has come in to Christ” (Romans 11:25). Jesus commanded the twelve, “Go not into the way of the Gentiles, or enter any city of the Samaritans: but go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matthew 10:5-6). Jesus lived under the dispensation of the Law given only to the Israel NATION and of no effect outside the Land of the Covenant. After Calvary He issued His ‘great commission’: “Because all power has been given to Me in heaven and [not just in the Land of the Covenant but throughout the] earth. Go and make disciples among all GENTILES [of Adam’s race] . . .” (Matthew 28:18-19). Aside from a little gleaning for elect Israelites between the first Pentecostal harvest and the siege of Jerusalem, the disciples were NOT sent to Israel which will be born-again as a NATION in one day—all 144,000 of them (Isaiah 66:8).

Today God is dealing with INDIVIDUALS of Adam’s race wherever they are and regardless of their nation, culture or colour of skin. Abram’s new name means “Father of the GENTILES” (Genesis 17:5). the blessing of Abraham” to Israel was a land of their own where they could find physical rest for their mortal spirit and corruptible flesh (Genesis 28:4). Under the New Covenant The blessing of Abraham to us Gentiles is through His [promised Seed] Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith . . . rest unto our soul(Galatians 3:14; Matthew 11:29). So when Brother Branham was at Cairo ready to fly to Palestine, the Holy Spirit spoke and said, “Not now. This is not the hour yet: more gleaning to do” (The Mark of the Beast and the Seal of God, #61-0217).

Daniel’s seventieth and crowning week will commence and must conclude with the restoration of all twelve tribes in the Land of the Covenant (Revelation 7:3-8) crowning Jesus Messiah as their King and His Church as their sovereign Queen (Daniel 9:24f; Revelation 14:1-4; 19:1-8), even as they are martyred (Revelation 15:2-4).

We live in the very end of the end-time. All seven Church Ages are fulfilled; the last saint predestinated to the PART-Word Body was baptized into Christ before He opened the Seven Seals in 1963. Since we now have the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7) Christ is no longer a Mediator interceding for ignorance of the fullness of the Word. Redemption is over and He is King of Kings and Judge. Because Christ’s end-time Bride is predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word through the Revelation of the Seven Seals, and the 144,000 elect Israelites are predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word through two prophets anointed with the same Spirit that anointed Moses and Elijah of old, we were all fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary and can no more be lost than God can be lost.

When God returns to deal with Israel as a nation their elect must be living in the Land. His objective under the Fifth and Sixth Trumpets was to recover and prepare the land for their return and redemption. These Trumpets manifest under the Fourth Seal. Matthew 24:7-8: “Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

These “sorrows” are earth’s birth pains for renewal. Romans 8:22, “For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now.” Earth was subjected to birth pains of increasing severity in the First and Second Woes with aerial bombing by hand and poison gas in World War I, and heavy tanks, carpet and incendiary bombing in World War II.

World War I saw Rothschilds and other Zionist self-styled Jews, Arthur James Balfour, Winston Churchill and their US comrades Chaim Weizmann, Louis Brandeis, Felix Frankfurter, Samuel Untermeyer, Henry Morgenthau et al inveigle England into the Balfour Declaration. This letter, whose meaning has been deceitfully misrepresented, ensured there can never be peace on earth until the millennium “but we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).

German Jews betrayed their host in World War I and after the Armistice was signed Germany disarmed, but the Allies did not disarm and transformed the Armistice into Germany’s defeat. The Kaiser abdicated and Germany was invaded by non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews under the Weimar Republic and looted, raped and transformed the nation into a bordello. When the National Socialists were voted into office they cleaned up the nation, restrained Jewry’s corrupt practices, restored the economy, and encouraged Jews, who had equal rights with other citizens, to relocate to Palestine.

The hoax of Germany’s extermination of six million so-called Jews in World War I was revised to zero and kept from the pages of history. Jewry made the same claim between the wars against the Jewish-ruled USSR but this was an extermination by Jews of twice that number of nominal Christians. The hoax of Germany’s extermination of six million so-called Jews was repeated at the close of World War II.

Without rehearsing history, the Lord used what Josephus termed “The Wars of the Jews” and the subtlety of Zionist self-styled Jews to force an exodus to Palestine that would advance His objective. Germany enabled them to transfer money in the form of industrial and agricultural equipment to establish a permanent and viable productive economy in Palestine. God enabled them to build the essential infrastructure to accommodate the Israelites on their return to the Land of the Covenant after the modern Israel state is defeated and the Jews vacate as He enabled the Jebusites to build ancient Jerusalem for Israelites under Joshua to colonise. God never changes His ways, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).

There is another definite ‘time period’ embracing four undefined ‘time periods.’ This refers to Jesus’ teaching in Luke 21:24, “[Christ-rejecting Judeans] will fall by the edge of the sword and led away captive into all nations [following the destruction of Jerusalem in AD70]: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.” Continuing, Jesus speaks of the unprecedented concussion of nature at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial at the close of the Gentile dispensation, and the redemption of Israel. So this scripture refers to the times of Gentile political dominion over Jerusalem from Nebuchadnezzar to Armageddon and the consummation of Life.

Brother Branham covers this period in Daniel 2:31–45. “Herein is revealed an exact account of future, unfilled history that was prophesied to come upon the earth from the time of Daniel until Jesus would come and reign as the Son of David. It is known as “The Times of the Gentiles.” It had within it four historical divisions which were known by the dominating empire in each division: Babylonian, Medo-Persian, Grecian, Roman.

The greatest and most absolute monarchy was the Babylonian which was typified as the head of gold.

The next in glory was the Medo-Persian which as history bore out was truly less glorious and was typified as the breast and arms of silver.

Then there followed the Grecian age whose king was the most brilliant of all military leaders the world has ever known so it was fittingly typified as the belly and thighs of brass but was less glorious than the other two preceding it.

Finally came the last kingdom which was the Roman Empire typified as the legs and feet. But wherein the former kingdoms were typified as pure minerals (pure gold, silver and brass) this last empire was pure iron only in the legs, for when it came to the feet it was a mixture of iron and clay, and mineral and soil just don’t mix and produce constancy and strength. Not only is this so, but most amazingly, this last empire (Roman) would endure in its peculiar ‘mixed state’ right up until Jesus returns.

This Roman Empire of iron (iron signifying power and great destructive force against opposition) was to be made of two main divisions. And it certainly was for the empire literally split into two—East and West. Both were very powerful, crushing all before them.

But as the glory and power of all empires fail, so this empire began to fall also. Thus Rome fell. Pagan Imperial Rome was no longer iron. She crumbled. She was wounded to death. Rome could not now rule. It was all over. So thought the world. But how wrong the world was, for that head (Rome) though wounded was not wounded unto death. (Wuest, translation of Revelation 13:3, “And one of his heads appeared to have been mortally wounded, the throat having been slashed. And his death stroke was healed. And the whole earth followed after the Wild Beast in amazement.”)

People look at Rome. They look at the nation of Italy. And as they look they do not realize that Rome with her strict confines where the pope has an actual area as his domain is literally a nation within a nation, and she has ambassadors and receives ambassadors. PAPAL FALSE CHRISTIAN ROME (she is even called the eternal city—how blasphemous) NOW CONTROLS BY RELIGION EVEN MORE ABLY THAN WHEN PAGAN IMPERIAL ROME CONTROLLED BY THE PURE IRON OF FORCE. Rome took on a new lease of life when Constantine joined church and state and backed the union by force. The spirit that motivated pagan Rome is the same spirit that now motivates false Christian Rome. You can see that is so because you now know that the fourth empire never went out of existence; it just changed in its outer texture.

Once the Nicene Council had swung the power of political Rome to the church, it seemed that there were no limits to which this First Christian Church would go. The name, Christian, which originally brought persecution, now became the name of the persecutors. It was in this age that Augustine of Hippo (354-430) set forth the precept that the church ought and MUST use force if necessary to bring her children back into the fold, and that it was in harmony with the Word of God to kill the heretics and apostates . . .” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 194-195:2).

Church Age Body of ChristPaul described a second definite ‘time period’ encompassing seven then undefined ‘time periods’ which are now past history and defined by THUS SAITH THE LORD. We refer to the Gentile dispensation; contained within which were Seven Church Ages of PART-Word when the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals and as mediator Christ received the Word for the Age and interceded for ignorance of the fullness (I Corinthians 13:10b). In Romans 11 Paul described God’s olive tree from which Israel’s spiritually cultivated branches were broken off because of unbelief, and uncultivated but elect Gentile branches grafted in. As he explained, the Gentiles would apostatise at the end of their dispensation of grace and be broken from the tree, allowing 144,000 elect Israelites to be grafted in during the tribulation after grace has expired.

The first diagram portrays the seven Church Ages. The Capstone represents the fullness of the Word which was rejected and crucified. Christ opened the Seals and revealed them through His Prophet after the last Church Age ended in 1963. The Prophet stood in the breach between the Church Ages and the Capstone and revealed the mystery of the unwritten Seven Thunders of Revelation 10. Christ’s end-time Bride forming the Capstone which is down for all who have been born-again by the end-time Message. The second diagram places each Church Age in history and signifies the intruding darkness.

Romans 11:25-26, “I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery, lest you be wise in your own estimation; that spiritual blindness has happened to Israel [as a NATION], until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. Thus the whole nation of elect Israelites will be born-again as it is written: The Deliverer [Jesus Christ] will come from Zion, and remove ungodliness from Jacob [not Jewry—whose time is in the Gentile dispensation, if they are in Adam’s race]”.

Seven Church AgesBrother Branham said, “The Seven Ages as set forth in Revelation Chapters 2 and 3 take in the whole span of the fullness of the Gentiles, or the whole time in which God is dealing with the Gentiles unto salvation. In every single age, bar none, it says the very same thing in opening and closing the Message to each age. “Unto the messenger of (Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, Laodicea) write; These things saith He, etc., . . . . He that hath an ear, let him (singular) hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.” Notice here that Jesus (by the Spirit) in EVERY age addresses Himself to ONLY ONE person relative to the Word for that age. Only ONE messenger for each age receives what the Spirit has to say to that age, and that ONE MESSENGER is the messenger to the true church. He speaks for God by revelation to the “churches,” both true and false. The Message is then broadcast to all. But though it is broadcast for all who come within range of the Message, that Message is received individually by only a certain qualified group in a certain way. Each individual of that group is one who has the ability to hear what the Spirit is saying by way of the messenger. Those who hear are not getting their own private revelation, nor is a group getting their collective revelation, BUT EACH PERSON IS HEARING AND RECEIVING WHAT THE MESSENGER HAS ALREADY RECEIVED FROM GOD” (Ibid, p. 155:2).

“Thus the whole of the Church Ages is God dealing with the Gentiles, and calling out a Gentile Bride to Himself. That makes the ‘Church Ages’ and ‘The Fullness of the Gentiles’ one and the same thing” (Ibid, p. 71:1).

Lastly, and immediately before Daniel’s Seventieth Week can commence we have yet another definite and defined ‘time period’ “about the space of half an hour,” represented as the Capstone of the pyramid. This is the antitype of the holy convocation of the fiftieth day of Israel’s Pentecostal feast that follows the seven sabbaths, rests or baptisms of the Holy Spirit that placed the Church Age saints into their division in the Body (Leviticus 23:15-21; Revelation 2-3).

The Capstone is yet another ‘gap’ of which the world church system is ignorant and could care less, but it is down. You will notice that John received the revelation from Brother Branham after the close of the Church Ages. Brother Branham was the Prophet of Revelation 10:7 and throughout the Book of Revelation John represents Christ’s end-time Bride precisely as in Ezekiel 4 that Prophet represented Judah, and then Israel.

Finished Body of ChristThroughout the seven Church Ages of “that which was in PART,” the saints laboured trying to understand the mystery of the Seven Seals, but Jesus did not claim the Book and open the Seals until after the Church Age saints were finished (Revelation 3:22; 4-5). Since “that which is perfect or complete, [Christ the fullness of the Word] has come, that which was in PART is done away.” Brother Branham’s Message is the “midnight cry” of Matthew 25:6 which is the “shout” of I Thessalonians 4:16 confirmed by the heavenly Voice calling the wise and foolish virgin OUT from Rome and her apostate (once) Protestant daughter churches INTO the unity of the faith, to be filled with the Spirit for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Revelation 18:4; Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19; I Corinthians 15:52).

Christ’s end-time Bride is not labouring to ‘work out’ by fallible human reasoning what God’s Word means, we are resting in this holy convocation since the Lord sent and vindicated a prophet whose ministry finished the mystery of God and introduced Christ’s second or (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming fifty-four years ago. By the grace of God we have THUS SAITH THE LORD the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication.

This Prophet was William Branham, the “angel” of Revelation 1:1, 3:14 and 10:7, the sole person to whom Jesus revealed the Book of Revelation. John on the Isle of Patmos from AD95-96 saw and heard Brother Branham unfolding these mysteries as Jesus revealed them to Him between 1963 and 1965 “and bore record of Word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw in the visions” (Revelation 1:2).

The Angel Gabriel told Daniel, “Seventy weeks are determined upon your people [Jacob’s children] and upon your holy city [Jerusalem]:

 

  • to finish the transgression
  • to make an end of sins
  • to make reconciliation for iniquity
  • to bring in everlasting righteousness
  • to seal up the vision and prophecy
  • to anoint the most Holy

 

About 2,520 years have expired since Gabriel visited Daniel in 538BC and Israel has not fulfilled one of these six commands. Thus the ‘time period’ of Daniel’s Seventieth Week is yet future. Daniel’s Seventieth Week cannot take place until God anoints two covenant prophets in Israel.

In His grace God Almighty has revealed the mandatory sign in the sky, and sent the covenant Prophet of Malachi 4:5, 6b, Matthew 17:11 and Revelation 10:7 to restore the apostolic faith and finish the mystery of God. This man William Branham was “a prophet as thoroughly vindicated, or even more thoroughly vindicated than was any prophet in all the ages from Enoch to this day, because this man will of necessity have the capstone prophetic ministry, and God will show him forth. He won’t need to speak for himself, God will speak for him by the voice of the sign. Amen” (ibid, p. 329). nl982.htm

G20: is the West Governed by Psychopaths?

July 8, 2017 — The oppressive police in Hamburg, ordered by [Jewess] Merkel, to suppress dissent, is but a forewarning for what is to come when Europe is being fully militarized . . . a ‘ghost town’ being built . . . Starting in 2018, the artificial town will be ready for training NATO and EU military forces for urban warfare, to suppress possible upheavals and protests in the wake of neofascist economic measures—à la Greece—being forced upon Europe . . . Police and military will not shy away from killing their own brothers. We are witnessing how this is done, and has been done . . . to an entire nation—beautiful Greece, the land that has given us the philosophers, mathematicians and scientists we still laud and admire—and the true concept of democracy which the west has used and abused for its trickery and deceit.

White Blindness when mixed with Black Rage, will it trigger the Apocalypse?

July 2, 2017 — Whites have failed to live up to the moral code they pretend to obey. If the white race is such a bunch of godlike figures, why is the rest of the world coming after us with an overwhelming sense of glee in their eyes for what whites have done wrong to them over the many centuries? I mean this will be ‘Lord of the Flies’ for adults! Or perhaps another French Revolution, when neighbour killed neighbour.

Why is all this happening, you ask?

The simple answer? Because the Jews want it to happen! Jews have urged the darker races to steal what they want from whites, because that’s what Jews do. Jews want all other countries to look like Iraq does today because they’re so much easier to control in a devastated condition.

White supremacists surely have never confronted the conundrum that they are responsible for their own fate, that the way they have treated the world is responsible for their own destruction. They took the bribe and committed the crime. Now they must pay for their destructive decisions, and disappear from existence. Or so the other races say.

The way whites have treated the world has come back to bite them. The Jews helped whites conquer the world, and now whites are being cast aside in favour of the new beta male, the Coudenhove-Kalergi version of humanity in which everyone looks like Barack Obama and no one can think for themselves.

The Muslim rape fest of Europe is accomplishing this Jewish goal as we speak. It forecasts the kind of putrid conditions the future will bring . . . Now Common Core, the trick, they say is subverting the thought processes of preschoolers before they even reach the curricula of first grade, so that their critical thinking skills will remain damaged throughout their academic careers . . .

Comment: Multiculturalism is an insidious euphemism for multiracialism by miscegenation which was the ‘original sin’ and is accursed of God (Genesis 1:11, 25; 3:1 – 4:15; John 6:63). Because miscegenation brings natural and spiritual genocide to Adam’s race God allowed evil men to destroy the world by the great Flood, and Jesus prophesied a repetition of the conditions and besetting sin of the days of Noah in the second or (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming of the Son of man (Genesis 6:1-4; Matthew 24:37).

Imagine—not a single member of Congress will stand up for the most important teaching of Jesus, the idea that killing large numbers of innocent people for some nebulous and unprovable political assertion is wrong—not only wrong but evil and contemptible. Not only nebulous and unprovable, but deliberately deceitful, because it is not Iraq that has weapons of mass destruction, but Israel—and Americans have no objection to that, even though Israel has unjustly murdered a thousandfold more innocent victims than Iraq has over the past decade. We don’t want freedom for the Iraqis; we just want their oil, and the whole world knows this (bluegreenearth.com).

‘Jews’ tried to Kill Truman in 1947

Zionist flag

May 17, 2012 — The date is December 3, 1972, and it’s right there in a headline of the Tri-City Herald, the newspaper that serves Pasco-Kennewick-Richland in the state of Washington: “Jews sent President Truman letter bombs, book tells.” The newspaper picked up the article, we see, from the Associated Press (AP).

Not only does the article carry the authority of the AP, but the book in question bears the authority of none other than President Harry Truman’s own daughter, Margaret. It is her biography of her father, entitled simply Harry S. Truman, and at the time the article was written, the book had just been published. The passage in question—a long paragraph that begins on page 489 and ends on page 490 (pp. 533-534 of the paperback edition)—is in a section on threats and attempts on President Truman’s life. Note that she misidentifies Anthony Eden as Foreign Secretary, which he had not been since 1938. Later, of course, he would become Prime Minister. Ernest Bevin was Foreign Secretary in 1947, and he was the primary target to the assassination attempts:

In the summer of 1947, the so-called Stern Gang of Palestine terrorists tried to assassinate Dad by mail. A number of cream-colored envelopes about eight by six inches, arrived in the White House, addressed to the President and various members of the staff. Inside them was a smaller envelope marked “Private and Confidential.” Inside that second envelope was powdered gelignite, a pencil battery and a detonator rigged to explode the gelignite when the envelope was opened.

The Demolition of a Nation, One Step at a Time

June 15, 2017 — On July 1, 2017, Canada will observe 150 years of Confederation. But as this bulletin points out, is there a nation still to celebrate?

“. . . the people of Canada do not wish, as a result of mass immigration, to make a fundamental alteration in the character of our population” Prime Minister Mackenzie King, May 1st, 1947.

“It is rare for a nation . . . to turn in a completely new direction. It is unusual for a democracy take such a turn. People are therefore entitled to inquire whether the distinctive character of their nation—and some of its greatest achievements—will remain if people from very different cultures are encouraged to come and, as far as possible, to maintain their own cultures” Geoffrey Blainey (‘All for Australia’ p. 154).

Demolitions, if viewed in slow motion, are revealed to be a sequential process . . . Viewed in hindsight, it may appear that the collapse of Canada’s identity was almost instantaneous. But in fact . . . Full story: immigrationwatchcanada.org

Islamic Terrorism: Our Ally for 38 Years

May 28, 2017 — Dear Diary, I can’t show this letter to the innocent people of America and the world, so it’s just between you and me. Imagine the shock and the outrage if I say that we have to embrace Islamic terrorism! The average person doesn’t understand what’s at stake and how sometimes the elites need to rely on “controlled chaos” for the greater good.

Islamic terrorists are wonderful instruments for proxy wars—they cost very little but fight fearlessly. They are a global resource that can be brought into any local conflict. They are also expendable—we use them when convenient and kill them when inconvenient.

If this shocks the conscience of people, it just means they haven’t been paying keen attention. Consider the following examples:

 

  • Thomas Friedman of The New York Times wrote we shouldn’t attack ISIS in Syria; 1 and we should even consider arming ISIS to overthrow Assad 2
  • John Kerry admitted, “US tried to use ISIS to force Assad into negotiations.” 3
  • Israeli military chief explained, “Israel prefers ISIS to Assad” 4
  • Israeli defense minister recounted, “ISIS never intentionally attacks us; and when it happened once, ISIS apologized immediately.” 5 Hello!
  • Hillary Clinton wrote, “Saudi Arabia and Qatar fund and arm ISIS.” 6
  • Joe Biden, Gen. Martin Dempsey, Gen. Wesley Clark all have stated that US allies in the Middle East arm and fund Al Qaeda and ISIS. 7, 8, 9
  • Several State Department cables have clearly laid out how Saudi Arabia is the #1 source of funding for terrorism around the world—not just in the Middle East. 10

 

Ever wonder why we never go to war against or impose sanctions on these sponsors of terrorism? Heck we don’t even condemn them!

What goes through a reader’s mind when they see an article titled “Accepting Al Qaeda” 11 that is published by the Council on Foreign Relations—the think tank behind US foreign policy? Or when Hillary Clinton’s chief foreign policy advisor wrote to her, “Al Qaeda is on our side”? 12

I can give many more such examples, but let’s hop on the time machine for a moment.

Afghanistan, 1979 – 1989. We used the Mujahideen to defeat the Soviet Union. Was that not a good thing? Remember how the media and Hollywood glorified those Afghan fighters in the 1980’s? The Afghan rebels even got to visit the White House.

There are two critical factors that are often forgotten in the Mujahideen story: foreign fighters from all over the world and fundamentalist Islam.

In the 1980’s, more than 35,000 so-called Arab Afghans came from all over the world to fight the Russians; 13 and we wouldn’t have been able to motivate them to do so without appealing to the concept of Islam, Caliphate or jihad. “Fight for Allah” is far more effective than “Fight for Country X.” Fighters motivated by religion are also extremely useful in the battlefield since they are not afraid of death. This mindset is essential for the use of suicide bombers without whom many battles and wars would not have been won.

We also learned from Saudi Arabia that indoctrination is essential to create good soldiers. So the CIA came up with clever textbooks for Afghan kids that introduced them to concepts of jihad, weapons and hatred for Russians. 14 . . . Full story: worldaffairs.blog

Comment: Dr. Roberts stated: “Putin will have to assess whether Trump is a real president or just another front man for the powerful interest groups that run Washington’s empire. If Putin concludes that Trump is merely a front man, then Putin has no alternative but to prepare for war.” Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy in the Reagan Administration.

This war was planned in 1871. Circumstances indicate World War III, initiated by 9/11, will certainly reach the ‘hot stage’ in the first half of 2018. Grace and the Christian dispensation will end approximately seven weeks before mainland USA is invaded.


 

Marriage in the Teaching of Jesus

Israelite Marriage

Proverbs 18:22, “Whoever finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favour from the Lord.”

Proverbs 31:10-12, 30, “If you can find a wife with strength of character, she is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband safely trusts in her, and she shall richly satisfy his needs. She will not hinder but help him all the days of her life . . . Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised”.

The father of the groom normally chose a bride for his son (Ephesians 1:4) from the tribe or within the larger family circle (in accord with Leviticus 18). In order to maintain the purity of the family line a wife was usually taken at the onset of puberty, the age of accountability. Often the bride and groom did not even meet until their wedding day as is the case of Christians who cannot meet their Lord outside of revelation which is our new birth or spiritual marriage. Otherwise, when a young man saw the girl he wanted to marry he would consult with his father, and when the father approved the choice his son would go to the maiden’s home and speak with her father.

Once consent was reached the young man would do three very important things:-

 

  • He would make a covenant with the bride—or contract of marriage.
  • He would drink a cup of wine with her which sealed the contract.
  • He would pay a price to her father which should not be considered as a wedding gift as she was their
    flesh and blood and her family was entitled to compensation for the loss of their daughter’s labour.

 

As among Christians the betrothal is the legal marriage and no religious rite was performed (Matthew 1:20). Within the family circle the husband was lord while the wife was expected to help him and bear his children (Genesis 2:18; 3:16; Ephesians 5:22-23; Titus 2:5; I Peter 3:6). The husband’s will was binding on the whole family. If the wife wished to express her wishes in contradistinction to her husband, she had to do so with dexterity (Genesis 27).

Preparatory to betrothal it was common for a bride and groom to take an immersion signifying cleansing, as John washed the Lamb of God in the river Jordan before He was offered (Matthew 3:13-17). And in accepting His proposal we plight our troth and take His Name, Lord Jesus Christ, in scriptural water baptism for the remission of past sins with the promise of the Holy Ghost which is our spiritual marriage as per Acts 2:38-39, fulfilling Matthew 28:19.

After the groom had made the covenant, drank the cup, and paid the price, he would address his bride informing her that they would live separately for one year’s sanctification. He would return to his father’s house where he would build a bridal chamber where they would have their first coming together in marriage. Before departing he would say: “I go to prepare a place for you.” The contract, cup and money were her security that he would return no matter how long it took him to build the bridal chamber.

You will recall in Newsletter 966 we rehearsed Brother Branham’s parable of the twenty-first century Armour girl (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 401:1 – 405:6). This humble Christian girl, a type of the Bride of Christ, did the dishes and chores on the ranch while her [denominational] cousins tried to charm this Man, but He was looking for a Bride with character and He proposed to her. She accepted, and He said, “Now you just make yourself ready [Revelation 19:7], and a year from today I’ll be back, and I’ll fetch you and take you away from here. She kept track of the time of the year and got her garments ready [the Token of the Life of Christ on display]. The day finally arrived. A certain hour He was to be there [Matthew 24:36]; so she dressed in her garment. And she hadn’t even heard from Him, but she knew He would be there. It was a mysterious thing to her denominational cousins [Revelation 10:7]. None of the girls had heard anything about His [parousia] Coming. But this girl just based it all upon His Word that He would be back for her . . .

Brother Branham said, “Oh, brother, give me a church full of the Holy Ghost. God will do in one year what all theology’s failed to do in two thousand years. You wait till the anointing of the Church really strikes home to that faithful the little remnant. After the doors of the Gentiles is closed, oh, God will anoint a Church then. “He who’s filthy, let him be filthy still. He who’s righteous let him be righteous still, and he who’s holy let him be holy still.” And God will anoint the church with the power of God, and things will be taken place. Not only that then, but He’s doing it now (COD, p. 145:203; Romans 8:19; Revelation 22:11-12; Isaiah 34:8; 61:2b).

The groom would have to build additional rooms to the family home and have them approved by his father. Until that time he could not go back and claim his bride who knew she was loved and was prepared to wait, secure in the contract sealed by the seal of their “last cup” as our Lord drank His last cup with our Brethren, “and told them, This is My blood of the New Testament, which is shed in behalf of many. Truly, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God” (Mark 14:24-25). He world pay the Price of His Bride with His Own Blood (I Peter 1:18-19). And she would have the surety of his bridal pledge, a ring or some such treasure as we have received the Gift of the Holy Spirit “which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession” (Ephesians 1:13-14).

During this time we are sanctifying ourselves, set apart, consecrated to Him like the little Armour girl. Veiled by the Holy Spirit lest some unwelcome stranger should attempt to initiate unwanted contract. “Our body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in us, which we have of God, and we are not your own. For we are bought with a price: to glorify God in our body, and in our spirit, which are God’s” (I Corinthians 6:19-20). Like the Armour girl we stay close to home, especially of a night as the time draws nigh, for Scripture promised the Lord would come as a thief, and He has (Matthew 25:15; Revelation 16:15).

Traditionally, the time of the groom’s arrival was to be a surprise. The Bride knew it would be about one year after their betrothal, but only His Father knew the day and the hour. As the time approached she and her virgin bridesmaids would be waiting every night with oil in their lamps. It was customary for the best man to lead the way to the bride’s house—and shout—“Behold, the bridegroom, come ye out to meet Him.” This would be followed by the sounding of the shofar, typing “the trump of God” and our resurrection and translation to the Father’s Home for the Wedding Supper in the Air (I Thessalonians 4:16c-18).

Her father and brothers would look the other way as the young man “stole” his waiting bride into the night followed by the entire wedding processional, passing noisily through the streets. Strangers and onlookers would not know the identity of the bride beneath the veil as today’s world church system cannot recognise Christ’s end-time Bride veiled by the Token of the Life of Christ, so few in number we will not be missed in the unprecedented cataclysm of nature when Christ takes His children Home.

The bride and groom entered the bride chamber while the wedding party waited without until the bridegroom told a trusty friend through the door that the marriage was consummated. John the Baptist was the “friend of the Bridegroom” who introduced Messiah’s first Coming and rejoiced when he heard Him preach to those who would be the first members of His Bride (John 3:29). Then the guests could enter and the celebration would begin. All guests, regardless of station, were given special wedding garments, a type of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 22:11-14). Afterward they would place the bride’s bloodstained garment out the window of the room for all to see that she had been a virgin. They would spend the entire seven days (representing Daniel’s Seventieth Week) celebrating the grand occasion, after which bride and groom would depart to take up residence in the husband’s house he will have prepared a place for them to live—his own kingdom—in our case this will be the millennium.

At the modern Jewish wedding:-

 

  • “Chuppa,” the canopy, symbolises the bridal chamber
  • the cup is drunk at the wedding
  • the honeymoon is at the home of the bridegroom’s father

 

 

The Old and New Covenants and the Wedding Contract

Read Hebrews Chapter 8, with special reference to verses 8 and 9: “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a New Covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah not according to the Covenant that I made with the fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt”.

Paul was quoting Jeremiah 31:31-32 to that God has replaced the old system of laws with a New Covenant sealed in His Own Blood (Revelation 1:5). When Abram received the Covenant from God confirming His promise to make his seed a nation in the land of Canaan, he divided the heifer, the she goat and the ram and stood between the halves to seal his oath (Genesis 15). And Moses had to sacrifice too. It is the blood that makes the Covenant have effect (Hebrews 9:16-18).

The Messiah came like a sacrificial animal and gave His Blood to seal the New Covenant. John the Baptist called Him; “the lamb of God which taketh away the sins of the world” (John 1:29). Isaiah said the Messiah would come as a lamb to the slaughter.

The relationship of God and Israel has always been a marriage. The Book of Hosea spells that out clearly. And Jeremiah’s language in announcing the New Covenant is very interesting, he says; “My Covenant they break, although I was a HUSBAND unto them” (Jeremiah 31:32b). God was a disappointed Bridegroom when Israel failed to keep the old Laws. But Paul, another Israelite, explained the marriage by saying, “This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the Church” (Ephesians 5:32).

The proper relationship between the believers and the Messiah would constitute a happy marriage for God. The Church is called the Bride of Christ. When Israel slaughtered Jesus Messiah He turned to “whomsoever will of Adam’s race” to call out a people for His Name,” a Bride. Jesus is our High Priest; a priest in Israel could not remarry an adulterous woman, for she is dead to him, as if she had been stoned. Christ is only marrying a virgin to His Word, He cannot marry a denominational harlot. Ana as a type of Christ a Christian minister may only marry a virgin. So although Israelites may be baptised into His Body, the Church before the close of the Gentile dispensation, the Israel nation cannot now be His Wife. The 144,000 elect Israelites who will be baptised into Christ as a nation in one day in the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week will be our attendants. Jesus Messiah lived under the Old Covenant when the Lord was dealing with an election of blood Israelites according to the Law because “He was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matthew 14:24).

The Tree of Life is Christ whence came the first Adam and his bloodline; the last Adam, Jesus Christ, is the Redeemer for those near KINSMEN kinsmen who lay down their earthly desires and by grace through faith become written epistles of His heavenly will. Following the Great Flood God began to refine an election through Noah to Shem, to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and his sons, to Judah and David, to Jesus Messiah. When Israel as a nation rejected and murdered their Messiah, it was pruned from the Tree until the fullness of the Gentiles comes in (Matthew 27:25; Romans 11:17-19). Individual Israelites were not baptized into Christ, for the Church comprised mostly Israelite converts until 606 (Galatians 3:23-29).

 

The New Covenant is a Wedding Contract

(1) The Messiah drank the cup at the Last Supper, and said; “This is My blood of the New Testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins” (Matthew 26:28). God promised that under the New Covenant “I will forgive their iniquity and I will remember their sins no more” Jeremiah 31:34. This promise to the Israel nation is in abeyance until Daniel’s Seventieth Week; The Lord cannot deal with the nation outside the Land of the Covenant, and the Israelites dare not and will not return from their exile in the now Muslim lands of the ancient Roman Empire (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:14; 27:13; 49:17; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 37:14; 39:27; Micah 5:3; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31) until the Land of their Covenant is vacated by the mass of their sworn enemy, the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews (Genesis 27:39-41).

Meanwhile, individual Israelites and being “baptised in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ for the remission [not just forgiveness] of sins with the promise of Gift of the Holy Ghost” IF they press into Christ and are born-again (Acts 2:38-39). “Neither is there salvation in any other NAME under heaven given among man whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). God cannot remit the sins of Israel nation as Jeremiah prophesied until He has finished with us Gentiles, taken His Bride of all Ages Home, cast Satan down to earth, and anointed two Hebrew prophets to minister to an election of blood Israelites in Israel.

Israel is blinded “until until the last elect Gentile is born-again” (Romans 11:25); when they observe their Passover the do not comprehend the fact “Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us” (I Corinthians 5:7). As our Bridegroom He ate of the unleavened bread and drank that cup of Redemption of which only those who are genuinely born-again may partake signifying they are at one with His Word and Spirit.

(2) Crucifixion was the Bride price Jesus paid. In the Garden of Gethsemane He prayed, “Father, if Thou be willing, remove this cup from Me: nevertheless not My will, but Thine, be done” (Luke 22:42). And His sweat fell like great drops of blood contemplating the Cross. His crucifixion was the highest price any bridegroom paid. He was obedient to His Father’s will. So you see, Jesus did not die for the world; He died for His elect Bride. Multitudes will be “saved . . . but strait is the gate and narrow the way, and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:13-14). His Bride is a “little flock”.

John 17:6-11, “I have made Your Name know to the men whom You gave Me out of the world: they were eternally Yours and You gave them Me and they have kept Your Word. Now they have recognized that everything I have is a gift from You. For I have given them the Words You gave Me; and they have accepted them and know in truth that I came from You, and they have believed that You did send Me. I pray for them: I do not pray for the world, but for those whom You have given Me; for they are Yours. And who are Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine; and I am glorified in them. And now I am leaving the world, but these are in the world, and I am coming to You. Holy Father, preserve in Your Name those whom You have given Me, so that they may be one, even as we are one”.

(3) In response to His prayer the Father sent an angel to strengthen His Son (Luke 22:43). Jesus paid the price for us. At death His soul descended to Hades as was the case of all departed souls under the Old Testament. Like Noah after God had shut the ark, Jesus continued preaching. He vindicating the prophets and Old Testament saints in paradise pending their redemption, and condemned the sinners in torment across the chasm. Then He rose, entered and glorified His flesh and ascended to the seventh dimension far above the visible heavens. He cleansed the heavenly sanctuary of the accumulated sins of the Old Testament saints which “the blood of bulls and of goats could not remit” (Hebrews 10:4) because they had no soul that could come back upon the sinner; once their mortal spirit was extinguished that was their end, hence we “may kill and eat”.

Having remitted the sins of the Old Testament saints with His own blood He descended and led them from captivity to death (through Eve’s sin and Adam forfeiture of his dominion to Satan) captives of Life in glorified flesh. They “appeared unto many” in old Jerusalem for about forty days then followed His ascencion (Matthew 27:50-53; Acts 1:3). Paul drew His prophecy of Ephesians 4:6-13 from Psalm 68 in the Old Testament thus establishing a type for us in the manifestation of the Sons of God during the resurrection of the Church Age saints prior to our body change and translation.

Before Calvary our heavenly Bridegroom had promised, “I will go to prepare a place for you” (John 14:2b). And like the traditional Israelite bridegroom, He returned to His Father’s house. After ten days, “when the Day of Pentecost was fully come” He inaugurated the Church, “sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory” (Ephesians 1:13-14).

John 14:1-3 was spoken after the Lord’s Supper when Peter was humbled and silent, and his companions sadly shaken by the prophecy they had heard concerning the treason of their treasurer, the most trusted disciple, and Peter’s forthcoming denial, plus the departure of their beloved Lord and Master. With all the thrilling solemnities of the night preceding the crucifixion these brave words held immeasurable power of comfort and consolation in distress bordering on despair. “Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in Me. [If others such as Judas Iscariot and Peter of whom Jesus had just prophesied (John 13:2, 10-27, 37-38) are overwhelmed and doubt you believe and rest in faith, for God will finish the work He has begun in you]. In My Father’s house [Kingdom or domain—the Logos whence I came]—are many mansions [or permanent abodes. Jesus and His disciples were itinerant preachers of no fixed address. When you become a new creation in Me, My Father’s house will be your Father’s house, rest and permanent abode. It is not in heaven that one finds God, but in God that one finds heaven. God is our mansion or rest, and His abode is in us (I Corinthians 6:19-20)]: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare or make ready a [permanant] place [singular] for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am [in the bosom of the Father], you may be also. And you know where I am going, and the way to get there yourself”.

Finished Body of ChristWhen you are born-again, “God, who is rich in mercy, out of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, made us alive together with Christ, (by grace are you saved); and raised us up with Him, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:4-6). Heavenly placesis your position in God’s Word: “the present Truth” for your day (II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7). This diagram shows the places of the Church Age saints in the Body. “The waywas through a clear revelation of the Message of the angel to their dispensation (Revelation 1 – 3; I Peter 1:1-8; Ephesians 4:11-16). The diagram identifies the angels with their Age and nominates the most prominent virtue displayed by the saints of each Church Age.

Seven Church AgesThis second diagram places each Church Age in history; it shows the duration of each Age and reveals that every denomination is apostate and impersonating the Word for a day gone by. Ephesians 1 explains how through His foreknowledge of our own decisions God chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, having predestinated us to recognition and placement as children by Jesus Christ to Himself “that in the dispensation of the fullness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and we who are alive and remain; even in Him.” This is now! Matthew 13:30, 39-43 have been in process since the revelation of the Seven Seals “enlightened the eyes of our understanding so that we may know what is the hope of our calling, and the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and the exceeding greatness of His [resurrection] power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power, which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in heavenly places“.

Jesus went away to prepare a place for the Church Age saints “chosen in Him before the foundation of the world.” Their “place” was also prepared as John saw in Revelation 21:16. It was each elect predestinated to the Church Age divisions of the Body made up of PART-Word (I Corinthians 13:10b) who had to be prepared for their position in the Word for their Age by recognizing their day and its place in the Scripture. In the office Son of God Christ interceded for their ignorance of the fullness of the Word whilst the Bible was sealed (John 5:25). Jesus was not speaking of individual houses, or mansions as some think, for we are all one Body, sons and daughters of God’s Family in Christ. There is room enough for the Bride of all Ages in our Father’s house signified in the first diagram, that City where there cometh no night.

Christ’s mediation was fulfilled in 1963 when the last saint predestinated to the Laodicean Church Age was baptized into Christ. He then claimed the Book, opened the Seven Seals and revealed their mystery through the Message of the seventh angel, William Branham (Revelation 1:1; 3:14; 10:7). Once again in the prophetic office Son of man He is Judge (John 5:27). Christ has prepared the place for His Capstone Bride; rather He is preparing us to make up the Capstone of the Body through the ministry His Prophet which restored the apostolic faith and “finished the mystery of God” (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Revelation 10:7).

All seven Church Ages are fulfilled and Redemption is over. We now have the perfect interpretation of the Word with divine vindication (I Corinthians 13:10). Christ’s end-time Bride (like the 144,000 elect Israelites) is predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word so we do not require mediation for ignorance of “that which is perfect”; therefore we were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary.

Christ is no longer at His Father’s house preparing our place, He has returned. The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form. The “midnight cry” of Matthew 25:6, “Behold the Bridegroom; come out to Meet Him,” was the “shout” of I Thessalonians 4:16 which was the Message of God’s Prophet, William Branham “Come out of Babylon and her (once) Protestant harlot daughters and be filled with the Spirit” (Revelation 18:4). This is “lamp trimming” time. His second Coming is not the Man from Galilee; Jesus said, “Do NOT look for the Man! Look for Light on the Word”  (Matthew 24:22-28). His unseen second Coming is a (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming; His second physical (Gk.) ‘erchomai’ return will be His third Coming as Son of David after the consummation of life when with the glorified saints of all ages He steps out on the nuclear ashes of the wicked for a thousand years of peace (Isaiah 13:9-10; Malachi 4:1-3; Matthew 3:12; Revelation 16:15; 19:20).

Jesus said, “He who overcomes will sit with Me in My Throne [on earth], as I have overcome and sit down in My Father’s Throne [in heaven]” (Revelation 3:21). Other words, “I took the Holy Spirit within by which I overcame all the temptations of the world, and took over!” (“And in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily” Colossians 3:9). “All power in Heaven and earth is given unto Me” (Matthew 28:18). He said. All the power! Then God is powerless if He’s another person. After His resurrection Jesus said, that “All the power in both Heaven and earth was given into My hand.” Brother Branham explained, “And Jesus comes from Heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His Saints, and the Bible says “the Heavens was empty for the space of a half hour” (Revelation 8:1; Jude 14-15). Where is this big fellow God then? Uh-huh. See? He’s in Christ. Sure” (The Sardisean Church Age, p. 348:96)!

(4) The Lord has returned to prepare His Bride (John 14:3; I Thessalonians 4:13-18). The Marriage Supper of the heavenly Bridegroom and His earthly Bride will be celebrated in a heavenly bridal chamber where we will be accompanied by the “friends of the Bridegroom,” the Old Testament saints whose duty will be to provide and care for whatever is needed for our nuptial celebration. Here we will spend a week of years as a bridal party in Israel celebrated seven days. We don’t go to the marriage, which has been the invisible union of the Bride and Christ throughout the Christian dispensation; we go to the Wedding Supper.

(5) We are waiting for the last saint predestinated to the end-time Bride to recognize her calling and take her position in the Capstone of the Body. When Israel’s Seventh Trumpet sounds, the wheat harvest and the Gentile dispensation will be over; Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300-400 mile segment of earth’s crust will sink beneath the Pacific, sending tidal waves around the world. In three days the resurrection of the sleeping saints will commence and “we who are alive and remain” will manifest that we are the Sons of God. After a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit our little hunted and persecuted group will go to be with Jesus.

SHAVUOT, or Pentecost, commemorated the giving of the Law upon Sinai (Exodus 12:2; 19:16) on Sivan 6, the fiftieth day after the holy convocation of Nisan 15, that is on Nisan 16 when the first sheaf of barley was harvested in the evening and waved before the Lord on the morning. The omer offering of flour made from the sheaf of barley waved on Nisan 16, signified Jesus Christ, “the firstfruits of the Old Testament saints that slept” (I Corinthians 15:20), and the prelude to the greater harvest offering at Pentecost when the Holy Spirit commenced the Spiritual redemption of His Wheat Bride, before which no other firstfruits could be offered.

The interval between Pentecost and Tabernacles was the time for offering firstfruits. Quoting Isaiah 49:8 Paul said: “Now is the accepted time; now is the day of salvation” (II Corinthians 6:2). This was also the inauguration of the Church when “the Spirit of the living God wrote the new, magnified Law of Christ in fleshy tables of the heart”  (Jeremiah 31:33; II Corinthians 3:3; Acts 2:1). The chief of the firstfruits are the two wave loaves of Pentecost signifying the ecclesia made up of Israelites and Gentiles (Leviticus 23:17; Ephesians 2:10-22). This was the last Israelite feast Paul observed. The fifty days of Pentecost marked the beginning of the barley harvest and the end of the wheat harvest.

The Day of Pentecost reminded the Israelites of their release from Egyptian bondage after the first exodus. It also marks the second Exodus when the Church was liberated from the Law of sin and death, and will mark the completion of the third exodus when “we shall all be changed . . . and death is swallowed up in victory” (I Corinthians 15:51, 54). The Prophet said, “Now, counting the time [1960], we find that we have exactly (Listen.) seventeen years left, and we will have the same span of time given to us as God dealing with us in the power of the Holy Spirit since AD33 until 1977, the same span of time of 1954 years. God deals with us the same as He did with the Jews. See? How about that?

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

Oh, we’re watching for the coming
Of that glad Millennium day,
When our blessed Lord shall come
And catch His waiting Bride away.
Oh, the world is groaning, crying
For that day of sweet release,
When our Saviour shall come back to earth again.

 

Did you get that? God has dealt with us exactly the same amount of time that He dealt with the Jews from the time He give Abraham the promise until the rejecting of the Messiah in AD33, was 1954 years. And now, we have seventeen years left. We had about 1930 something years. We got seventeen years left until ’77 will be the seventieth jubilee since the beginning of jubilees. And what will it be? Oh, brother. Watch close now. Don’t miss it. It’ll be the Jubilee of the going up of the Gentile Bride and the return of Christ to the Jews Israelites, when they go out of bondage. Amen. Don’t you see? From all the world they’ve gather there for that day. Oh, my. See where we’re at? We don’t know what time it might happen. We’re at the end time” (The Seventieth Week of Daniel, p. 115, 196-198).

Sign of the end time“Christ the mighty Angel descended upon Mount Sunset, Arizona on about March 8, 1963, clothed with a cloud and crowned with a rainbow (His Covenant sign in the days of Noah) . . . and He set His right foot in judgment upon [the Judaeo-Roman beast from] the sea, and His left foot on [her US Judaeo-Protestant image] that raised up from the earth . . . and swore by Himself (Colossians 2:16-18) that intercession will not further delay His Coming, for in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, William Branham, when he shall begin to sound his end-time Message, the mystery of God should be finished, as he has declared to His servants the prophets” (Revelation 10:1-7; 1:1).

Paul described the threefold PROCESS commonly called the ‘rapture.’ “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the Voice of the Archangel and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (I Thessalonians 4:16-17).

The “shout” was Brother Branham’s Message introducing Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 10:7). The “Voice of the Archangel” is Christ in the heart of His Bride placing the Message from Genesis to Revelation to bring her to maturity in the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Ephesians 4:13; Romans 9:18; I Corinthians 15:51). The “seventh Trumpet” (Revelation 11:15; 6:12) will end the Christian dispensation and commence “the time of Jacob’s trouble” (Romans 11:25-27; Jeremiah 30:7) with the invasion and utter defeat of the faux Israel state allowing the children of Jacob to return safely to the Land of their Covenant for redemption (Leviticus 25:10; Zechariah 10; 11; 14:1-2).

All summer following Pentecost the Israelites harvest the fruit of the trees and vines so that the crops are in and the harvest is finished when the trumpet (not the seventh trump) sounds the first day of the Civil New Year on Tishri 1. ROSH HASHANAH, the Feast of Trumpets begins the ten days of penitence culminating in Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Ours is a Pentecostal Jubilee whereas Israel’s Jubilee will be a mourning for their forebears’ rejection of Christ’s atonement (Leviticus 23:26-32; Zechariah 12:10 – 13:9). Prophesying Israel’s unbelief in the Saviour: Jeremiah 8:21 reads “The summer is ended, and we are not saved”.

(6) When the Bride has been committed to the groom she takes off her veil and places it over His shoulder (Isaiah 9:6), signifying that not only is she under his dominion—that she has transferred her rights to him—that he is the head—but also that he bears the responsibility and the care and that HE AND HE ALONE—NO ONE ELSE—NO OTHER MAN—NO OTHER POWER—HAS ANY RIGHT AND RESPONSIBILITY. He chose her. She did not choose Him. He called her. She did not come on her own. He died for her. He washed her in His own blood. He paid the price for her. She belongs to Him and to Him alone. She is wholly committed to Him and He accepts the obligation. He is her head, for Christ is the head of His church. As Sarah called Abraham, Lord, even so the Bride is happy that He is her Lord. He speaks and she obeys for that is her delight.

Church Age Body of ChristWe don’t go to the marriage, we go to the Wedding Supper. We are now married to Christ through our invisible union or new birth and the union is consummated for we are already pregnated by the Word of God to bear sons who will finish the Body of Jesus Christ. To this end the Son of man descended upon Mount Sunset and caught up Brother Branham into a pillar of Cloud formed by the seven portions of the Spirit that had anointed the angels to the Church. He was told to return to Jeffersonville where he would receive the mystery of the Seven Seals which will unite the PART-Word Body with the Capstone and enable the end-time Bride to manifest that they are the Sons of God.

(7) At the Great Marriage Supper of the Lamb we will have all received our crown of eternal Life. Brother Branham said, “Even as the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, so we are to follow that example. See Him as He bows Himself over the apostles and washes their tired and dirty feet. He said, “You don’t know now what I am doing, but you will know hereafter. What you see me doing, you ought also to do.” He became a servant in order that God could elevate Him to the highest heights. And one day in the judgment of the saints we are going to hear Him say, “Well done, good and faithful SERVANT, enter thou into the joy of the Lord.” It is hard to be always a servant. But those who spend and are spent for others will one day be seated with Him in His throne. It will be worth it all, then.

“Let us labour for the Master from the dawn till setting sun,
Let us talk of all His wondrous love and care,
And when all of life is over and our work on earth is done,
And the roll is called up yonder I’ll be there”
(An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 223:3).

Brother Branham was speaking of the Judgement Seat of Christ before which all the Brothers and Sisters will stand; those who were resurrected and we who are translated when “the kingdoms of the world have become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign forever and ever” (Romans 14:10; I Corinthians 15:52; I Thessalonians 4:16-17; II Timothy 4:1, 8; Revelation 11:15).

This is not a judgment to condemnation, for we were each judged in Christ on Calvary where we paid the supreme penalty, were acquitted and raised with our Lord when “He was raised again for our justification” (Romans 4:25; II Corinthians 5:13-21). Here each will be presented and recognized. For we must all appear [(Gk.) ‘phaneroo’ in our true character] before the judgment seat of Christ” [(Gk.) ‘bema’; I Corinthians 4:5; Colossians 3:4]. Although we are always manifest to God, there we shall be manifest to the assembled saints of all Ages and to ourselves to receive His reward of grace in proportion to “the things done in the body” (II Corinthians 5:5-10; II John 1:8).

II Timothy 4:8, “There a crown of righteousness is laid up for me, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award me at that day, and not to me only, but [to Brother Chibueze and] also to all them who have loved His appearing”.

So the ‘bema’ judgment is for the saints a judgment of reward in recognition of our service to Christ. The individual saints are personally introduced to the Man Jesus Christ and announced with approbation to the saints of all Ages at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. The dignity of our station and reward will be determined by our motives and our objectives (not mere external acts) and the excellence or mediocrity of our character displaying the Token on earth.

We are at all times, even now, manifest to God; then we shall be so to the Church of the first born and to ourselves: for the judgment shall be not only in order to assign the everlasting portion to each, but to vindicate God’s righteousness, so that it shall be manifest to all His creatures, and even to the conscience of the sinner himself.

At the end of Daniel’s Seventieth Week when the Wedding Feast has concluded, King Jesus and His Queen will appear to those without, and by 144,000 elect Israelites will “anoint the most holy” with the joy of the Lord (Daniel 9:24).

Revelation 17:1 – 18:24 is in parenthesis describing God’s judgment on the Judaeo-Roman Universal church and her harlot (once) Protestant daughter churches during the tribulation. The three Woes, three unclean spirits like frogs, Seven Seals, Seven Trumpet Judgments, Seven Vials, the casting down and incarnation of Satan and the ushering-in of the millennium are revealed after the PART-Word saints were finished in 1963 and redemption was over. Thus Revelation 6:1 – 19:21 are associated with Daniel’s Seventy Weeks for Christ’s end-time Bride was fully redeemed in Him on Calvary.

We will now meet the 144,000 elect Israelites who will be re-born and martyred in that time (Revelation 14:14:1 – 15:4). This revelation was given to John who represent’s Christ’s end-time Bride throughout the Book.

Revelation 19:1-16, “After these things [the destruction of Vatican City State (Revelation 17:1 – 18:24)] I heard a great voice of much people [Israelites fully redeemed (Revelation 14:1; 15:2) and] in heaven, saying, Halleluiah; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: for true and righteous are His judgments: for He has judged the great whore, which corrupted the earth with her fornication [idolatry], and has avenged the blood of His servants at her hand” [Revelation 6:10-11; 15:4; 17:1 – 18:24]. And again they said, Halleluiah. And her [atomic] smoke rises up forever and ever. And the twenty-four elders and the living creatures fell down and worshipped God who sits on the throne, saying, Amen; Halleluiah.”

“And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Give praise to our God, all you His bond-servants, you who fear Him, the small and the great. And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude [Christ’s Bride of all Ages], and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigns. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb has come [to pass], and His WIFE has made Herself ready [dressed in the THUS SAITH THE LORD of Brother Branham’s Message with her Husband, King and Queen]]. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of saints [as announced to everyone at the bema judgment].”

“And he [Brother Branham, the angel of Revelation 1:1; 3:14; 10:7, etc., who guided John, representing Christ’s end-time Bride throughout the visions on Patmos] said to me, Write, Blessed are they who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me [John, representing us], These are the true sayings of God [i.e. THUS SAITH THE LORD].”

“And I [John, representing Christ’s end-time Bride] fell at [Brother Branham’s] feet to worship him. And he said to me, Don’t do that: I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

“And I saw heaven opened, and beheld a white horse whose Rider was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems [He was crowned King of kings] and He has a Name written which no one knows but Himself. And He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood: and His Name is called The Word of God. [“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God; and the Word was made flesh and dwelled among us.” This is Jesus]. And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him upon white horses. And from His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may smite the nations: and He will rule them with a rod of iron: and He treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of God the Almighty. And on His robe on His thigh He has a Name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS”.

The Great Marriage Supper having concluded, as with the earthly type the Bride and Groom appear to those without, who say, “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him; for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His WIFE has made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arranged in fine linen, clean and white; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.”

Notice the Scripture says “WIFE”, she is no longer a “BRIDE.” The Wedding Feast has concluded, Israel recognize King Jesus and His Queen who will destroy His enemies and leave the Father’s throne to return to His own throne for a thousand years of peace. What a time to look forward to! “Even so, come, Lord Jesus”. marriage.htm
