Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased to see your happy, smiling face.

Android Phone“Where is the promise of His Coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” We have been greatly impressed with the extreme lateness of the hour and astounded at the apparent disinterest among professing Christians, with not so much as a tweet from within the circle of this end-time Message. Our main article, “The Ordeal of Jealousy,” describes the alternative to the translation for those of little faith, and for the faithless. The Old Testament type is found in Numbers 5:11-31, its New Testament antitype is found in Revelation 15:1, 5 – 18:20 which prophesy the Seven Vials of God’s wrath upon make-believing and un-believing non-elect ‘christians’.

In Revelation 17:1-3, William Branham, “one of the seven angels which had the Seven Vials, spoke with . . . . [insert your name] . . . . saying, Come here; I will show you the judgment on the Great Whore that sits upon many waters [ruling Rome’s one world government]: with whom the kings of the earth have committed [spiritual] fornication [which is idolatry]. So Brother Branham carried me away in the Spirit into the desert: and I saw a woman [church] seated upon [and controlling] a scarlet coloured beast [the Judaeo-Roman church Empire], full of blasphemous names [such as Prebyterian, Lutheran, Anglican, Baptist, Methodist, Pentecostal, et al], having seven heads [mountains, and seven deified Emperors: five are fallen (Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, and Claudius), and one is (Nero), and the other is not yet come (Galba); and when he comes, he must continue a short space: Galba ruled seven months and six days, and ten horns [or sovereign nations into which the Empire of Imperial Rome divided, namely the ten toes of the image of King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream (Daniel 2:31-45). The Ostrogoths (Italy), Visigoths (Spain), Franks (France), Vandals (North Africa), Suevi (Portugal), Alemanni (Germany), Anglo-Saxon (England), Heruli (Germany), Lombards (Italy), and Burgundians (Switzerland and Austria)”]. The Vandals were massacred in 533, the Heruli were massacred in 493, and the Ostrogoths were massacred in 538 for rejecting Rome’s Trinity of gods, thus these three nations are extinct.

As it was in the days of Noah the world is falling apart again. The thrust of this week’s news is the morphing of the apostate (once) Protestant churches and the Empire of the City of London into the crafty cold-blooded image of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic beast.

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.

Turkey invades Syria to attack US-backed Kurdish Forces

January 22, 2018 — On Sunday, at 11 AM local time, Turkish tanks and infantry invaded Afrin, a majority-Kurdish multi-ethnic region in north-western Syria . . . With Moscow’s tacit support, Turkey is attacking the YPG, the backbone of the main US proxy force in Syria, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) militia. The danger of this triggering a clash between US forces and Russian and Turkish forces in Syria, and all-out war between the United States and Russia, is very real . . .

It signifies a historic breakdown of the NATO alliance, of which the United States and Turkey are both members. Given that the Turkish invasion apparently has support in Berlin, it reflects deep and mounting conflicts between the major NATO powers . . . As Turkey moves to destroy the main US proxy force in Syria, NATO is on the verge of collapse and Washington is increasingly isolated. It faces a powerful coalition of opponents in the Middle East that enjoys support even among Washington’s nominal European allies. It is responding by announcing a military strategy that centers on preparations for total war against nuclear-armed powers such as Russia and China . . . Full story: wsws.org

Comment: Leaders in Syria, Iraq, Iran and particularly Turkey can see that Washington is not an honest broker, but a crafty cold-blooded opportunist willing to throw even its allies under the bus to achieve its own narrow geopolitical objectives. As a result, Erdogan has moved closer to Russia which has sent up red flags in Washington as one would expect. After all–in the broader scheme of things–Turkey is more important to the US than Ukraine. It is the essential land bridge and energy hub that is destined to bind Europe and Asia together into the world’s biggest free trade zone. If Turkey breaks out of Washington’s orbit and moves into Moscow’s camp, Washington’s plan to ‘pivot to Asia’ will collapse in a heap.

So while McMaster might think that forward deterrence will prevent Russia from achieving its objectives, it’s clear that the policy is already working in Putin’s favour. Every miscue that Washington makes only adds to Putin’s credibility and reputation as a reliable partner. Simply put: The Russian president is gradually replacing Washington as the guarantor of regional security. This is a tectonic development and one that US powerbrokers will definitely regret in the future. A ‘changing of the guard’ is underway in the energy-rich Middle East; Washington is the odd-man-out (counterpunch.org).

The new post-Syria conflict reality: whether in Lebanon, Syria or Iraq, little can occur without Iranian involvement, one way or another. Turkey too, cannot pursue a realistic Kurdish strategy without Iranian assistance. And Russia and China both need Iranian assistance to ensure that the One Belt, One Road project is not derailed by jihadi extremists.

This is the reality: whilst American and European leaders talk incessantly of their plans for ‘containing’ Iran, the reality is that Iran and its regional allies (Syria, Lebanon, Iraq—and to a unpredictable extent, Turkey) are, in fact, ‘containing’ (i.e. militarily deterring) America and Israel. And the centre of economic gravity in the region, inexorably, is draining away from the Gulf, towards China and Russia’s Eurasian project. The Gulf’s economic strength has passed its peak.

Deploying a ‘small’ US occupation force in north-eastern Syria stands not so much as a threat to Iran, but more as a hostage to Damascus and Tehran. Such is the shift in the balance of power between the northern tier of states in the region, and those of the southern tier. It is a symbolism—an American military force in Syria ostensibly to ‘contain Iran’—that the US may subsequently rue, should Turkey act—or, ultimately abandon, leaving their erstwhile Kurdish allies to twist in the Syrian dry wind (strategic-culture.org).


The Trinity of Globalist Control

Satan's Trinity

The ideology of the British Empire has been outlined in the past by various British statesmen, specifically by England’s first Jewish Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli (Lord Beaconsfield). The modern version which has been broadened to include the United States as a principal in the British Empire was outlined by Cecil Rhodes in about 1895 as follows: “Establish a secret society in order to have the whole continent of South America, the Holy Land, the Valley of the Euphrates, the islands of Cyprus and Candia, the islands of the Pacific not heretofore possessed by Great Britain, the Malay Archipelago, the seaboard of China and Japan and, finally, the United States. In the end Great Britain is to establish a power so overwhelming that wars must cease and the millennium be realized”.

Global Capitalism and Livelihoods denied: Whipping India’s Farmers into Submission

January 23, 2018 — There is a push to drive people from the countryside into cities . . . The World Bank wants India to relocate 400 million people to urban centres . . . societies do not ‘evolve’ in a unilinear way. Policy makers merely look to prosperous countries and see the bulk of their populations living in cities with a small percentage working in (a heavily subsidised and an unsustainable system of) agriculture . . .

The route to capitalism and urbanisation was not ‘natural’ in Europe and involved the unforeseen outcomes of conflicts and struggles between peasants, landowners, the emerging class of industrialists and the state . . . the iron fist behind the invisible hand . . . whipped the English peasantry in a workforce willing to accept factory wage labour . . . peasants didn’t want to give up their rural communal lifestyle, leave their land and go work for below-subsistence wages in dangerous factories being set up by a new, rich class of industrial capitalists.

A series of laws and measures were designed to push peasants out of the old and into the new by destroying their traditional means of self-support . . . prominent figures advocated for their impoverishment, so they would leave their land and work for low pay in factories . . . depriving a largely self-reliant population of its productive means. Although self-reliance persisted among the working class (self-education, recycling products, a culture of thrift, etc), this too was eventually eradicated via advertising and an education system that ensured conformity and dependence on the goods manufactured by capitalism.

“We build cyber cities and techno parks and IITs at the cost of the welfare of the downtrodden and the environment. We don’t think how our farmers on whose toil we feed manage to sustain themselves; we fail to see how the millions of the poor survive. We look . . . at the inevitable necessities for the corporate world to spread its tentacles everywhere and thrive, depriving the ordinary people of even the basic necessities of life and believe it is development” . . . 300,000 and 400,000 farmers have taken their lives since 1997 and millions more are experiencing economic distress. Over 6,000 are leaving the sector each day. And yet the corporate-controlled type of agriculture being imposed and/or envisaged only leads to degraded soil, less diverse and nutrient-deficient diets, polluted water and water shortages and poor health . . . small farms are more productive than giant industrial (export-oriented) farms and produce most of the world’s food on much less land . . .

The Ordeal of Jealousy

His Wife

A betrothal is a marriage and everyone who professes Christianity claims to be Christ’s Bride and at one with His Word. Marriage is a binding contract. God is only as good as His Word, and he expects us to honour our Word.

When a man proposes marriage to a woman and she says ‘yes’ they are married at that point. As Christians they will not consummate the marriage until they have asked Christ’s blessing celebrated by the witness of family and friends, and having met the requirements of state. But the moment she accepts his proposal the two are married. Should she change her mind and marry another, she shall be called an adulteress since no woman may have more than one living husband (Romans 7:1-3).

A woman serves God as she obeys her husband. If we claim to be the wife of Christ He expects us to obey His every Word (Genesis 3:16; Ephesians 5:4; I Peter 3:6). As the husband is head of his wife and takes her responsibility upon his shoulder so Christ the Word is head of the Church, and we obey Him in everything.

The spirit of jealousy enters when a covenant has been agreed and corruption and secret unfaithfulness is suspected. ‘Suspicion’ is the death blow to all loving intimacy. In the Old Testament, when a man was suspicious of his wife but unable to produce witnesses as required by the Law (Numbers 35:30; Deuteronomy 19:15), or other evidence of her guilt, there was a trial of jealousy.

Numbers 5:11-14: “The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the children of Israel, and tell them, If any man’s wife go aside and commits a trespass against him and a man lies with her carnally and it is hid from the eyes of her husband, and kept close, and she is defiled, and there are no witnesses against her, neither is she taken with the manner; [if she was taken in the act, the penalty for adultery was death (Leviticus 20:10)]. And the spirit of jealousy comes upon him, and he is jealous of his wife, and she is defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy comes upon him, and he is jealous of his wife, and she is not defiled”.

If a man is jealous of his wife, he warns her before two or three witnesses, “speak not with so and so.” This types Christ and the church through the Gentile Dispensation. In each age there was an elect Spiritual Bride-Church, non-elect foolish virgin, and the false church. The Lord had to distinguish the foolish virgin from the false church. “And there are three witnesses in heaven—the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost: these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, the water, and the blood, and these three agree in one [new birth]” (I John 5:7-8).

You see all three groups in church circles claim to be born-again or married to Christ, but all three steps of grace are required to produce a child of God. Justification by grace through faith and water baptism by immersion in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, sanctification by the blood, then the baptism of the Holy Ghost transforms your life into a “written epistle” of God’s Word for your day; only “the present Truth” of God’s Word can quicken your soul to birth which is your invisible union in spiritual wedlock.

The wheelThese great truths were lost through Roman Catholic persecution over almost 1,000 years of Dark Ages, but gradually restored in the Reformation of the Roman Catholic system of worship through the three witnesses of Revelation 14:6-10. “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” This angel was Martin Luther preaching the Message of justification by grace through faith.

“And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” This was John Wesley’s Message of sanctification. “And the third angel followed them, saying with a great voice, If any man worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb.” This was William Branham warning the saints to come out of Babylon, flee the mark of the beast and be filled with the Spirit.

If she spoke with another—a little flirt with the world, denomination, some TV here, a tasteless joke there, she may still consort with her husband, Christ the priest, and partake the heave offering—His holy portion, the revelation of the Word of the hour. She is not disfellowshipped.

But if she secretly went aside with the other man, remaining time enough to suffer defilement, she may neither consort with her husband nor partake of the heave-offering. She may have received strange seed for denominational life—not Christ the Original Seed.

The husband may make her drink the Vial on the evidence of one witness, or on his own evidence. If she admits uncleanliness, she is put away. If she declares she is clean, she is taken to the eastern gate where the priest lays hold on her garments and loosens her hair prior to shaving, for any to behold she is shamed (I Corinthians 11:14).
And today, since the revelation of the Seven Seals, the denominational religious covering of creed and tradition has been rent; those beneath it are naked before the One with whom they must deal and will be made to partake of Rome’s plagues unless they come out of that iniquity (Malachi 4:5-6; Acts 3:21-23; Revelation 18:4, 6).

Let’s read Revelation 3:17-19 which describes the spiritual condition of the church of the world today. “Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing”; [no repentance—no admission of uncleanliness]; and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel you to buy of Me gold tried in the Fire, that you may be rich; and white raiment, that you may be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness does not appear; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent”.

This is checking-up time! Laodicea was weighed in the balance and found wanting. Beware the king of the North. We live in the days of the final investigation judgment of those who are not in the rapture yet claim they are Christ’s.

This judgment or trial upon the foolish virgin is to separate them from the ‘flirters’ or denominational harlots. Whereas the foolish virgin go into the great tribulation and will be martyred by the false church they will be granted into eternal Life at the White Throne Judgment, but the false church will be cast into the Lake of Fire (Revelation 2:20-23; 14:9-13; 19:20).

Since Elohim descended in the Form of the Logos or Fullness of the Word in I Thessalonians 4:14-16 and Revelation 10:1-7, (Gk.) ‘chronos’ “time is no more”; there can be no more delay to mediate for ignorance of the fullness of the Word (I Corinthians 13:10). This has to be the final trial. Those who refuse the Fullness of the Word as their Atonement, or fail to come under pre-eminence to the Fullness, not being Bride, will drink the Vial. Those who fail the ordeal will have their names removed from the Book of Life.

We have seen seven Church Ages, each with its Message which was the Gospel of their salvation whereby Christ sought to make love to she who called herself His wife. But in every Age the non-elect failed to consummate their marriage vow in union with the Word for their day, and as Ahasuerus put Queen Vashti away, Christ put them away and opened another dispensation. Moses charged God’s people with the blessings of His Love at Mount Ebal and Mount Gerazim—but His rejected love became their curse; even so, God’s grace in the Messages of the seven angels when rejected by the Church became a curse in the Vials (Deuteronomy 27; Revelation 1-3; 15-16).

“The pure river of water of Life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb” in Revelation 22:1 and 17 is freely given without money and without price to “whosoever will” but it becomes the curse of Revelation 22:14-15 and 18-19 . . . for “the letter without the Spirit kills”.

Perhaps the foolish virgins with insufficient Oil of the Spirit to quicken their souls to new birth never encountered the Word for their day as their pastor was born-again in Laodicea and lacked the necessary revelation of the Word for their hour. Or perhaps they were dilatory, neglected to prove all things, and content for their pastor to ‘do their religion for them’ they received a second hand religion by the Word for the hour without the Spirit. According to Matthew 25, this portion of the church will be cast into the tribulation with the unfaithful, unbelieving false church, and having neglected to rightly divide the pure waters of Life they must drink the curse of the Vial.

Let’s see what happened to the natural woman under the Law:

Numbers 5:15-17, “Then shall the man bring his wife to the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it is an offering of jealousy, an offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance.” Placed in her hands as a tithe of one day’s portion, it signified her life or character; no oil or frankincense—Holy Spirit and prayer was added to it.

“Then the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the Lord: and he shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle, and put it into the water”.

Dust from the ashes of the blood and offerings was gathered from the floor where only the holy walk of the priests had trod, mixed with water from the laver in which the priests washed their hands and feet before ministering before the Lord making the water holy—a waters of separation and of judgment (Ephesians 5:26).

In the New Testament, when a Seal opens, a mystery unfolds. The angel to the Church catches the mystery of God and delivers the revelation. His Gospel Trumpet starts a spiritual war in the Church and sounds a Trumpet of natural war upon Israel who reject it. Then God takes His Messenger with the elect of that Age, lays them away asleep and pours a plague (or Vial)—a temporary judgment upon those who rejected the Message, and a Church Age opens.

Shall we look at some scriptures? Revelation 16:19, “And the great city [Jerusalem] was divided into three parts [as UN Resolution 181 of November 29, 1947 is enforced]. And the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon [Vatican City State] came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup [or Vial] of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.” This is the Seventh Vial (Revelation 16:17 – 18:20).

Revelation 18:4-9, “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, [Babylon, and her denominational daughter churches] My people, that you do not partake of her sins, and receive not of her plagues [the Vials]. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. [See what kind of character she brought in her hand]. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double to her double according to her works: in the cup which she has filled, fill to her double (Revelation 17:1). How much she has glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she says in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues [Vials] come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judges her. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning”.

At every change of Dispensation when men opposed themselves as did the Jews, God made them drink the Vial, and their blood was upon their own heads (Matthew 27:25; Acts 18:6; Hebrews 10:28-29; Revelation 6:10-11). If they were guilty, their names are removed from the Book of Life and they are eternally separated from God—dead to Him as the adulterous woman who was stoned was dead to her husband.

So the Vials contain God’s Word in condemnation of the unfaithfulness of churches and individuals that have disdained the blessings of obedience to the Message of their angel.

Numbers 5:21-24, 28 “Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of cursing, and say, The Lord make you a curse and an oath among your people when He makes your thigh [or generative parts] to rot, and your belly [womb] to swell; and this water that causes the curse shall go into your bowels, to make your belly to swell, and your thigh to rot: and the woman shall say, Amen, amen. And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he shall blot them out with the bitter water [into the bowl or vial].”

The water and the Word become one, and when the woman drinks the water, she and the water and the Word become one, as we read in Revelation 10:8-11 where the Bride becomes one with the Revelation. “And the Voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again, and said, Go and take the little Book which is open in the hand of the Angel Who stands upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went to the Angel, and said, Give me the little Book. And He said, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make your belly bitter, but it shall be in your mouth sweet as honey. And I took the little Book out of the Angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. And He told me, You must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.” Causing the church world—souls in prison now—to drink the curse to separate the righteous non-elect from the FALSE church, the make-believer from the unbeliever. Brother Branham called the latter “the total lost”.

Now perhaps you will understand what Brother Branham meant when he quoted Paul, “For yet a little while, and He that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man turn back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him” (Hebrews 10:38-39). The mere association of kind-hearted people with the true believer might well bring death in return for their kindness” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 116). For should they reject the Message their name might be removed from the Book of Life.

Returning to Numbers, “He shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that causes the curse: and the water that causes the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter. [To bring guilt to Light]. And if the woman is not defiled but clean then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed”.

The trial or Ordeal of Jealousy is a test for innocence or guilt. This is how God distinguished the ‘saved foolish virgin’ from the lost false church at the end of each Age and ‘temporarily’ judged the false church.

In Revelation 15 we see the martyrdom of the 144,000 elect Israelites and the revelation Israel sees in Christ’s ‘parousia.’ In chapter 16 we see how the ‘temporary judgment’ of the Vials will enable them to distinguish the foolish virgin from the wicked false church which persecuted the saints and Israel throughout the Gentile Dispensation, and will be persecuting the foolish virgin and true Israel at that very time (Revelation 13:15-18).

Let’s expound Revelation 15, remembering that throughout the Book John represents Christ’s end-time Bride who will not see death. Here we see another symbolic vision like Revelation 12:1-3, signifying how God’s wrath is satisfied and His objectives accomplished.

“And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them the wrath of God is finished”.

Dressed as judges, each of the seven Church Age messengers bears a bowl or Vial full of the wrath of God to pour upon those who have not fully received or have rejected the revelation or grace in the Message to their day yet claimed kinship in the Body. These non-elect are the Foolish virgin and false church which Jesus called “the synagogue of Satan” (Revelation 2:9; 3:9; 22:18-19).

“And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand beside the sea of glass, having the harps of God”.

The “sea of glass” is the brazen laver made in the Wilderness from the looking glasses of the Israelite women. Here the priests washed their hands and feet before ministering before the Presence. In Revelation 4:6 the water was “crystal clear,” as the Church Age saints were “washed” or redeemed in the intercessory days of Christ. Laodicea and Christ’s Mediation was over; the Bride Age saints were fully redeemed on Calvary, justified by the faith He knew they would have (Romans 8:28-30). In Revelation 15 there is no more blood on the altar, the Bride has been translated, and the laver is full of the holy Fire of God’s judgment without mercy by the unbending Rod of Revelation 11:1. Here the 144,000 of Revelation 7:1-8 are washing their robes.

“And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are Your works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are Your ways, You King of saints.” The 144,000 now have the revelation Jesus Christ is their King and like Solomon, His Bride their Queen is from all nations of Gentiles as Caiaphas unintentionally prophesied (John 11:49-52).

After God delivered Israel through the Red Sea Moses led them in song, glorifying Him. Now the 144,000 being delivered from spiritual bondage worship in song led by the Holy Spirit glorifying Jesus. And as the sea swallowed and destroyed the armies of Pharaoh, God will repel the armies of Rome and her allies who will come to destroy all God-fearing, Word-abiding Israelites. With the enemy repulsed, Jesus comes and presents Himself by revelation to the 144,000. This will be His second or ‘parousia’ Coming to Israel in the prophetic office Son of Man. But until the millennium His Kingdom will be spiritual.

“Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your Name? For You only are holy: for all nations shall come and worship before You; for Your judgments are made manifest”.

144,000 have been born-again as a nation in one day by understanding and acknowledging His justice in the Trumpet judgments that chastened unbelieving Israel for two thousand years. Now they see the innocent Blood of Christ on the hands of their guilty forefathers; Israel’s transgression is finished, their sins have come to an end, and they are making reconciliation for iniquity in martyrdom (Daniel 9:24; Matthew 23:33-36; 27:25).

Following the assurance in the parenthesis of Revelation 15:2-4, the remaining verses introduce an entirely fresh subject reading from the vision of the first verse where the seven Church Age messengers are seen in judgment, signified by the golden girdles about their breasts. The revelation of the Vials enables Israel to distinguish the believing Bride from the make-believing foolish virgin, and the foolish virgin from the evil un-believing false church.

“And after [the consolation of verses 2-4] I looked, and the temple [or central sanctuary with its Holy Place and Holy of Holies] of the tabernacle of witness in the heaven was opened: and the seven angels that had the seven plagues came out from the temple clothed in linen pure and glistening white and having their breasts girt with golden girdles”.

Revelation 11:19, “The temple of God in heaven was opened, and the ark of His Covenant was seen in His temple: and there were lightings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail” at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet, and Seventh Vial (Revelation 6:12-17; 11:15-19; 16:17-21).

These symbols are revealed to Israel after the Seventh Trump sounds the close of the dispensation of grace and the Seventh Vial is poured out in Revelation 16:17 but Israel will not catch the vision until more than three and a half years later. The sanctuary was where only priests could lawfully go, and the Holy of Holies where only the high priest could enter, once a year on the Day of Atonement or Cleansing of the sanctuary. Here, however, the way is open to all True Israel. Revelation 15:5-6 is Pentecost or the commencement of the Gentile Dispensation. 2,000 years later, the vail of Jewish tradition is rent, and the Ark of God’s Testimony or Covenant with Israel is revealed to the 144,000. The Ark typed Messiah and was the sign of God’s favour toward and Presence with Israel. Here, of course, it is not a wooden box they see, but their Kinsman Redeemer with nail scars in His hands and wounds on His brow as He presents Himself to Israel by revelation before again stepping forth to assume a physical relationship to man in the millennium as Son of David, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and Bridegroom of the Gentile Bride(Zechariah 12-13).

The Temple of God in heaven must not be understood as literal but for what it represents. The Seven Vials were poured out by the Message of each angel in his Age, and like the blessings and cursings of God’s Message by Moses, they do not return to God void but accomplish that which He purposed. Any exposition of Revelation 16 is primarily a history of what has been, except for the plague of the Seventh Vial upon the unfaithful denominational harlots. Revelation 18:4, “And I heard another Voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues” [Vials].

Brother Branham was the angel with the Seventh Vial (Revelation 17:1; 21:9; 22:7-9) that completes the Ordeal or Trial of Jealousy when it’s poured out as the Seventh Trump shatters the silence of Revelation 8:1 declaring “war in heaven and the casting down of Satan” (Revelation 12:7-10).

Revelation 16:17-18, “And the seventh angel poured out his Vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, IT IS DONE. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great”.

“And one of the four living creatures gave unto the seven angels seven golden Vials full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled”.

The presence of the four living creatures reveals this takes place under the first four Seals. Revelation 15:8 marked the day of Pentecost, Revelation 16:17 will be poured out at the Seventh Trump. The first Six Vials were poured upon earth after the conclusion of each Church Age (Revelation 16:1): the coals from the golden altar will be cast into the earth at the close of the Gentile dispensation to cleanse the sanctuary where Christ and His Bride will dwell for a thousand years of peace (Revelation 8:5; 11:19; 16:18). This scene begins 2,000 years before Jesus comes forth from the Holy of Holies to meet His Bride in the spiritual dimension called the air, cleansed by the wrath of the Message of the seventh angel’s Vial which will be poured out into the air.

The smoke in the heavenly temple is not incense but the divine Fire of consuming judgment because in every Age the sacrifice was rejected, and Christ could only intercede for our offering of the Word of the hour. The revelation comes to us and to the 144,000 after the Sacrifice has left and intercession is over. The presence of Christ’s end-time Bride makes earth God’s mercy seat for the Life is in the Blood and we are the Blood of Christ by the baptism with the Holy Spirit; when we depart earth will become God’s judgment seat for seven years of tribulation (Revelation 4; II Thessalonians 2:6-8). Smoke displays the glory of God, His justice in punishing the wicked, and is the answer to the cry of the souls under the altar (Revelation 6:9-11).

Since the Church is one Body, no man can enter the Temple until California sinks under the Seventh Trumpet, Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial. Then the two loaves are waved and glorified for the Church Age saints cannot be made perfect without us.

Glory! Home we go to be with Jesus. Proving the Bride does not go through the Tribulation. The Seventh Vial of jealousy, like the previous six Vials, is to separate the foolish virgin from the faithless false church.

When Moses dedicated the Tabernacle of badger skins (Exodus 40:33-38), and when Solomon dedicated the Temple of stone (I Kings 8:1-11), the priests were not able to minister until the cloud was taken up. And the Israelites journeyed not until the cloud was taken up. During the Church Ages, when the first six Trumpets were manifesting, Israel could not enter the Presence. But once “the great Cloud of witnesses” is lifted (II Thessalonians 2:7; Revelation 7:2) in the physical catching away of the Bride, the Feast of Trumpets will be preached to Israel who will commence their journey to the West. nl1009.htm

The Investigation Judgment

January 19, 2018

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 1008

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

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are so pleased you could join us in fellowship around God’s unchanging Word.

Android PhoneIf we project timelines from the news, Scripture, the Message of the hour and our feature article “The Investigation Judgment,” they form what navigators call a “cocked hat” over the chronological co-ordinate where the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trump and Seventh Vial manifest. This point will witness the termination of the Christian dispensation of grace with the sinking of Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth’s crust. We understand from Revelation 3:17-20 and II Timothy 3:1 – 4:4 that the Pentecostals put Christ out of their assemblies when they rejected the revelation of the Seven Seals which brought Him back to earth in W_O_R_D form. Certainly they are rich materially and in need of nothing, but spiritually they are bankrupt of faith, naked of the Blood, and know it not (Romans 11:32).

Jesus said, “In My Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you [by interceding for the ignorance of the Church Age saints while the Bible was sealed]. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” He came again “as a thief” between the Sixth and Seventh Vials; His Presence has been with us for fifty-five years. He has received and baptized the wise virgins into His Body.” Soon cometh the earthquake.

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.

Tillerson unveils ‘New’ US Syria Plan: ‘Assad must Go!’

January 17, 2018 — Confirming that the US military presence inside Syria had little to do with fighting ISIS, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson unveiled in detail today the real US strategy for Syria: overthrow of the Assad government . . . Tillerson vowed that the United States military would continue to occupy Syrian territory until three conditions are met:

First: [US proxy mercenary] ISIS must be destroyed.
Second: Assad must go.
Third: Refugees must be returned to Syria.

President Trump is set to out-neocon the neocons with this foolish and destructive policy. The showman is shown to be nothing but a fraud.

Full story: ronpaulinstitute.org

William BranhamComment: The Syrian government stated that the new American-organized [border] force “represents a blatant assault” on Syrian sovereignty and has referred to the US as an illegal occupying force. It also referred to members of the SDF and new American “border force” as “traitors” . . . the United States, GCC, Israel, and NATO have determined that the feasibility of destroying the Syrian government in the same manner as in Libya is becoming less and less plausible by the day. Plan B, however, is the partitioning and the “Federalization” of Syria into several independent countries or one country with several “autonomous” zones headed by a weakened central government incapable of maintaining power and steering the ship of state.

The move to create a “border force” is no more than an attempt to solidify the borders of “Kurdistan” in Syria and a possible “Sunnistan” in the east. These plans are not reasonable solutions to a crisis, they are imperialism pure and simple and they have existed for decades. Not only Syria’s allies but the American people must oppose this plan as well (activistpost.com). This is the Bernard Lewis (Yinon) Plan for the Balkanization of the Middle East unveiled to the Bilderberg Conference in 1979).

The latest move will not only intensify the civil war in Syria but bring the US into direct conflict with Russia and Iran, which back the Assad regime, and Turkey, which regards the YPG as a direct military threat.


USA: A Different Strategy for a Different Ambition

January 9, 2018 — I have just read through the new United States National Security Strategy released by President Trump in December 2017. There have been many comments on it, most of them focusing on the hostility in the document towards Russia and China but also some question of what the Strategy is. Well, after reading page after page of delusions, bombast, bragging, bullying, lies, fantasies and deep-seated megalomania, you discover that there is no strategy. They don’t have one. The only use that document has is as irrefutable evidence that the government of the United States is what they like to call a Joint Criminal Enterprise intent on seizing control of the world for its sole interests. Fortunately, they have, apparently, no idea how they are going to achieve that goal except through war, war, and more war, and if that doesn’t work some more war until they collapse from exhaustion, like a mad, rabid dog.

But it’s clear who they are afraid of and so show their weakness. China and Russia make them nervous. And, if I were an adviser to the government of Pakistan, I’d say “watch your back, more trouble is coming.” Other nations that still have a backbone, the usual list, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Syria, Iran, the defiant ones, are like an itch they can’t scratch, and the written scowls in this document are meant to make them shake in their boots but only make you laugh. And, oh, for the rest of the world, it’s, “Do what you’re told, make us money, don’t get in the way, and keep your mouth shut, but love us, love us, love us, make sure you love us” . . .

But with their rising economic power based to a large extent not only on its own resources but the exploitation of the resources of the western hemisphere, the war with Spain, seizure of The Philippines and Hawaii, and the bankrupting of Britain, France and Germany and the Ottomans in the First World War, the United States saw its way towards global power and has never abandoned its ambitions even though its achievement meant the misery of its people and all those peoples who had to suffer its actions.

To make America great means to reduce every other nation to its vassal. The very idea is a repudiation of the international law. The Charter of the United Nations, in its preamble states . . . Full story: journal-neo.org

Comment: US President Donald Trump has publicly vowed to relaunch all-out economic warfare against Iran by no later than mid-May unless the European powers join Washington in unilaterally rewriting the civil nuclear agreement between Tehran and the world’s great powers (wsws.org).


Trump Administration set for More Hawkish Position on Nuclear Weapons

January 10, 2018 — Jon Wolfsthal, special assistant to Barack Obama on arms control and non-proliferation, has seen a draft of the Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) and is concerned that the development of new weapons will mean armed forces commanders might see them as ‘more usable.’ One new weapon is a submarine-launched Trident missile with a smaller warhead than usual . . . earlier drafts of the document had been even more extreme, with plans for the development of hyper-glide missiles that could travel at speeds of up to 25,000kph, being dropped.

“What I’ve been told by the people who wrote the thing was what they were trying to do was to send a clear deterrent message to Russians, the North Koreans and the Chinese. And there is pretty good, moderate but strong language that makes clear that any attempt by Russia or North Korea to use nuclear weapons would result in a massive consequence for them and I think that’s actually moderate, centrist and probably very much needed.”

‘Fractures, Fears & Failures:’ World’s ruling Elites stare into the Abyss

January 18, 2018 — Next week . . . 2,500 bankers, hedge fund managers, corporate CEOS, government officials and celebrities descend once again on . . . Davos for the World Economic Forum (WEF) . . . The Bloomberg Billionaires Index published last month established that the fortunes of the world’s wealthiest 500 billionaires . . . rose 23 percent over the past year, making them $1 trillion richer than at the end of 2016 . . . obscene amounts of wealth keep rolling in, with the Dow closing at 26,000 Wednesday, recording its fastest ever 1,000-point rise.

Yet the principal report issued as the basis for the four days of meetings and closed-door discussions presents a picture of a global ruling elite living in mortal fear that growing economic and social crises, and, above all, the threat of world war and social revolution, may rob them of not only their fortunes, but their heads as well.

Titled “Fractures, Fears and Failures,” the WEF’s 2018 Global Risks Report includes subheads such as “Grim Reaping,” “The Death of Trade,” “Democracy Buckles,” “Precision Extinction,” “Into the Abyss,” “Fears of Ecological Armageddon” and “War without Rules” . . . The report was drafted in conjunction with a survey conducted among nearly 1,000 banking and business executives, government officials and academics, which found that 93 percent of them feared a worsening of confrontations between the major powers in 2018. Fully 79 percent foresaw a heightened threat of a major “state-on-state” military conflict . . . The fears of global war are well-founded . . . This year’s gathering at Davos . . . will be overshadowed by the attendance of Trump . . . The world capitalist economy . . . is beset by “unsustainable asset prices . . . elevated indebtedness . . . and continuing strains in the global financial system . . .” Full story: wsws.org


Is Bitcoin a Reaction to US Dollar Hegemony?

Bitcoin logo

January 18, 2018 — national economies seem to have begun the process of protecting themselves . . . dumping dollars for other goods of value also with ordinary individuals as a result of global technological growth and increasing access to the Internet . . . The US dollar is the world’s most dominant reserve currency. The planning and financial rules . . . are decided in the United States for the benefit of Washington . . . reflected in the creation of the petrodollar, the abolition of the gold standard . . . financial crisis of 2008 . . . with the precise aim of prolonging American domination of the global economy, artificially propping up an unsustainable financial system.

The practical consequences of this unsustainability have led over time to thoughts of a practical alternative, both to escape from the domination of the dollar and to re-anchor the economy to real value . . . especially urgent for countries with a large amount of dollar-denominated debt, or where they face the prospect of being excluded from the SWIFT international payment system.

. . . Iran and Venezuela, but also Russia and North Korea, have resorted to alternative methods to operate in the global economic space. Washington’s political decision in 2012 to remove Iranian banks from SWIFT immediately set off alarm bells for several countries . . . An alternative payment system was thus born in 2015, christened the Cross-Border Interbank Payments System (CIPS) . . . a backup system should the Americans seek to exclude from SWIFT recalcitrant countries . . . Venezuela . . . has announced the creation of a crypto state currency based on the value of oil and supported by barrels of oil worth over five billion dollars . . . Even North Korea is said to operate in bitcoin . . .

Technology has facilitated this strategy of decentralization against the center that is London and Washington, the financial heart and primary cause of manifold global problems. Firstly, the possibility of the unlimited printing of dollars has distorted global economies, inflating stock markets and causing national debts to grow out of control. [ISIS and Al-Nusra smuggle USD billions into Syria under IRC logos]. Even the gold markets are manipulated by virtue of the abundance of easy money and such ponzi-scheme tools as derivatives and other forms of financial leverage . . . the dollar is depreciating in relation to some more tangible assets. But gold continues to be corralled by parallel financial mechanisms and other financial instruments created for the sole purpose of manipulating the financial markets on which the common man depends in search of modest gains. As with others, the gold market suffers from the combine power of the US dollar, centralized financial institutions and market manipulation. Entities such as the FED (and their owners), criminally colluding and working with private banks, hedge funds, rating agencies and audit companies, have made immense wealth by driving the world into a debt scam that has stripped normal citizens of their future . . . An anonymous, decentralized and technologically reliable system could be exactly what Washington’s geopolitical adversaries have been looking for to end the US-Dollar hegemony.

Facebook & Google Outline Unprecedented Mass Censorship at US Senate Hearing

January 18, 2018 — Behind the backs of the US and world populations, social media companies have built up a massive censorship apparatus staffed by an army of “content reviewers” capable of seamlessly monitoring, tracking, and blocking millions of pieces of content . . . the technology giants have created an all-pervasive system of censorship in which machines, trained to collaborate with the CIA, FBI, and other US intelligence agencies, are able to flag and block content even before it is posted. . .

The Pope’s WW3 Warning: the World is at ‘The Very Limit’ of Nuclear War

January 18, 2018 — The Pope made the comment as he flew off for a visit to Chile and Peru, and the statement comes just after Hawaii issued a false missile alert that provoked panic in the US state and highlighted the risk of possible unintended nuclear war with North Korea.

Germany’s ‘Nazi Grandma’ given Jail Term for Holocaust Denial

November 29, 2017 — 89-year-old Ursula Haverbeck, and her late husband were members of the Nazi party during the Second World War. The pair founded a now-banned education centre and she has written for a right-wing magazine where she has argued that the Holocaust never happened.

Haverbeck was initially sentenced to eight months in jail in 2016 after she claimed Auschwitz was not a concentration camp, in a letter to the mayor of the German town of Detmold. But after giving the judge and prosecutors leaflets entitled “Only the truth will set you free” during the appeal session she was given ten additional months of imprisonment. Her overall sentence was reduced to 14 months.

She has been convicted on five other occasions for similar charges of incitement of racial hatred, but she has remained free as her lawyers appealed.

Her lawyers plan on taking the case to a top regional court for a final appeal against the jail term. Full story: bbc.com


 

The Investigation Judgment

As Revelation 14 began with a prolepsis viewing 144,000 elect Israelites standing triumphant with the Lamb having overcome the beast and his image by grace through faith, Revelation 15 begins with another heavenly sign showing seven angels with seven plagues that execute God’s wrath upon non-elect Gentiles after the close of their Church Age. Revelation 15:1, “And I saw another (Gk.) ‘semeion’ sign (supernatural portent) in the heaven, great and marvellous, [translated “miracle” or “wonder” in Revelation 12:1, 3; 13:13, 14; 16:14, and 19:20], seven angels having a commission to fulfil the seven last plagues; for in them God’s fierce indignation is finished”.

Before God does anything of great moment under the New Testament He makes an announcement in the heavens by a sign in the sky (Psalm 19:1-6), then a Seal opens and a mystery begins to unfold to His anointed messenger. As the angel to the Church Age preaches its Message the Gospel Trumpet declares a spiritual war, then a Judgment Trumpet strikes Israel with natural war for refusing to repent and receive the Gospel. A Church Age opens and the angel’s Message pours a plague upon the non-elect, “a temporary judgment” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 126:4-5).

The churches that rose up out of the Pentecostal Revival began to denominate around 1909 just before three angels flew in mid-heaven crying, “Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabitants of the earth,” by reason of Three Woes that will strike the earth in World Wars I, II, and III as pains for regeneration prior to the millennium (Matthew 24:8; Romans 8:19-23; Revelation 8:13; 9:12, 11:14, 15). In Newsletter 1004 CIA Director Mike Pompeo implied that the US would attack North Korea this coming March. And with “full spectrum dominance” the united States has plans to invade Russia, China and Iran, so we are very close to the end of the dispensation of grace, to the ‘hot stage’ of World War III, and Armageddon seven years thereafter.

The Prophet called the era from about 1909 to the end of our dispensation “the Investigation Judgment” (Ibid, p. 400:6; A Paradox, #64-0418B, par. 208). He qualified this by citing the worldwide visitations of Billy Graham representing Baptist and fundamental churches, Oral Roberts representing the Pentecostals, and William Branham revealing “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever . . . by discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart as it was in the days of Lot.” At that time God and two created men visited Abraham and investigated the cities on the plain before “raining fire and brimstone from heaven and destroying them all” (Christ is Revealed in His Own Word, p. 16:69, 155; Genesis 18; Luke 17:28-30; Hebrews 4:12). Billy Graham is now 99, Oral Roberts passed away in 2009, and William Branham in 1965. I think we can safely say that “the investigation judgment” is about over, let’s get ready for the Fire-falling time. Separate yourself from all sin. Separate yourself from anything that pertains to the world. “Don’t love the world or the things of the world”.

Jesus said, “great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights [Brother Branham added, flying saucers, all kinds of things in the air], and great signs shall there be from heaven” (Luke 21:11). And Joel prophesied, “And I will show wonders in heaven above, [Brother Branham added, flying saucers and everything], and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke” (Acts 2:19).

The Prophet said, “You see these little pockets going through the air, they call “saucers,” so forth . . . “Hear all these people come up missing?” You say, “Don’t hear from them; they’re standing there, and they’re not there.”

“That’s the way the Rapture is going to be. One of them will drop right down, and this terrestrial body will take on a celestial body. And they’ll be . . . hide, hair, or bones left; it’ll be transformed in a moment of time, dropping right out of space and taking that Home (I Corinthians 15:35-54). We see all this going on now, and the Pentagon wondering about these lights, and mystic lights, and everything they’re seeing in the sky. You seen they had one here in the paper at Jeffersonville this week, and so forth, “a mystic light.” So, oh, they don’t know what that is. But listen, little children, It’s going to pick you up, one of these days. See? See? Don’t worry.”

“Remember, Jesus said, “As it was in the days of Sodom.”

“What happened just before Sodom? God came down with some angels, and they had an investigation judgment . . . It’s doing the same thing today. [Billy Graham and Oral Roberts preaching to the churches in Sodom] . . .”

“Why, after a while, the Church, when It can stay in that place, and every seed has been brought to its spot, they’ll be gone. They won’t know what happened to them. One will be going one way. See? One will be going over to the pastor’s house, and one will be going here, or down there, and, the first thing you know, they’re not there. For Enoch which was the type, “God took him, and he was found not.” Come down to investigate! The continuity, how the Enoch translation, a type . . . (Christ is Revealed in His own Word, 15:68-69).

Clour of February 28, 1963Brother Branham called them “investigating judgment angels.” They appear as “mystic Clouds” of witnesses (Hebrews 12:1) like the Pillar of Cloud that manifest publicly over Flagstaff (Isaiah 11:10) Arizona on February 28, 1963 then caught up Brother Branham from Mount Sunset on March 8, 1963 to complete the constellation of themselves (Daniel 7:13; Revelation 1:14; Matthew 26:64). Following the trumpet judgment on Israel at the close of each Seal the non-elect church members had to submit to the ordeal of jealousy wherein they would imbibe the curse of their vows to Christ the Word their espoused Husband to discover any evidence of infidelity (Revelation 22:18-19). The vial, (Gk.) ‘phiale,’ a bowl or goblet having more breadth than depth, of God’s wrath was drunk to distinguish and separate the righteous foolish virgins to the Word from the great whore’s denominational harlot daughters. Unlike Israel’s trumpets, these plagues are not sent forth as chastisement with a view to repentance and correction, but as judgment upon those who have obstinately refused to return, and as strokes upon those who, professing themselves to be Christians, are wilful, hardened, and deliberately hostile to Christ and His true Church. Under the plague of the Seventh Vial, the beast and his image will be stoned with “great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of one hundred pounds” (Exodus 9:18-25; Leviticus 20:10-13; Deuteronomy 22:21-25; Revelation 11:19).

Revelation 15:2-4 is a parenthesis: “And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and those who were victorious over the beast and over his apostate (once) Protestant US image, and over the number of his name, standing beside the sea of glass, holding the harps of God.” [So the annual three billion plus USD gifted by US Goyim to the modern faux Israel state of non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Israeli Jews is funding those in league with the Judaeo-Roman church whom “God set at enmity with Adam’s race” (Genesis 3:15; 27:39-41; Daniel 9:27; Malachi 1:1-5; Romans 9:13).

TabernacleThe brazen altar and the laver stood in the forecourt of the tabernacle. The laver was cast from the polished copper looking glasses offered by devout Israelite women who renounced the instrument of personal vanity for the sake of the higher beauty of holiness. The laver was a reservoir for water drawn into its base where the priests washed their hands and feet in nearing the altar and entering the sanctuary, on pain of death. The animal victims were washed in the same water before being offered on the brazen altar. Every worshipper entering the Presence must be sanctified by the washing of water by revelation of the Word (Matthew 3:15; Romans 12:1; Ephesians 5:21-27), for the Word of God is a mirror wherein we see ourselves and God’s image reflected and is the means of sanctifying or cleansing (II Corinthians 3:18; James 1:23-25; Exodus 30:18-19; 38:8). In Revelation 4:6, “the water in the laver before the throne was as clear as transparent crystal” showing that the Church Age saints are all redeemed, Christ’s mediation for PART-Word is fulfilled, and Redemption is Over. Predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word, Christ’s end-time Bride was fully redeemed in Him on Calvary: His entire Body is now “raised up to sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:6).

Solomon’s molten sea before the mercy seat of the earthly temple was made of captured copper. The twelve oxen supporting the laver represent the twelve tribes of the priestly nation which cleansed itself here in the person of its priests to appear holy before the Lord. The “holy water” used in the ordeal of jealousy (Numbers 5:17), and in consecrating the Levites by purifying and sprinkling, was probably from this laver (Numbers 8:7), typing the true and efficacious sprinkling of Christ’s blood on the conscience (Hebrews 9:9, 14, 27; 10:22; Titus 3:5; Ephesians 5:26). The purification of the priests typed the baptism of water and of the Spirit by those who are made kings and priests unto God (John 3:5; Revelation 1:5-6; 5:10). Not to be so washed entails loss.

From the diagram we see the Holy Spirit shone His Light from the Throne through the sevenfold Spirit lighting the seven stars under pre-eminence in His right hand, the angels to the seven lampstands or Church Ages. Their PART-Word shone the Light for their age into the laver. When John saw the laver in Revelation 4:6 the angels were back before the Throne, which is now a judgment seat. The water was clear as crystal signifying the Church Age saints were all washed and baptized into His Body. “Unless a man is born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God” (John 3:5).

“Faith comes by hearing, and understanding by the Word of God.” We follow the Light reflected in the laver to justification by grace through faith and plight our troth by baptism in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We advance from the Court to the Holy Place by sanctification; washed and sanctified, we are baptized into Christ’s Body by the Word for our day and enter the Holy of Holies, separated from the world and walking in that Light (I John 1:7; II Peter 1:12).

In Revelation 15:2-4 the laver is mingled with Fire of the Holy Spirit purging the 144,000 tribulation saints taking victory over the beast and his image by martyrdom. “And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are Your works, O Lord, God the Almighty; just and true are Your ways, You King of the nations. Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify Your Name? For You alone are holy: for all the nations shall come and worship before You; for the righteousness of your judgments is manifest”.

Here 144,000 elect Israelites confess our Lord Jesus Christ is indeed “Lord God the ALMIGHTY.” As Abraham’s new name meant “Father of the nations,” his promised Seed and heir Jesus Christ is “Lord God the Almighty, the King of nations, the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ” (Jude 4). There is no trinity.

Israel’s two prophets will show the 144,000 how the nation fell from Moses and the Prophets to Babylonian paganism, then devised the Babylonian Talmud that “makes the commandment of God of none effect” (Matthew 15:6), then murdered Messiah. They will then expound two thousand years of history under the Seven Trumpet judgments throughout the Christian dispensation, but the revelation will not quicken their souls until after the death, resurrection and ascension of their prophets. Revelation 14:6-11 showed us that Israel will be justified, sanctified and filled with the Holy Ghost, “So He might sanctify and cleanse the nation [in one day] with the washing of water by the Word” (Ephesians 5:26; I Corinthians 10:1-6), then sealed by blood in Revelation 15:2-4.

Moses and the Israelites’ song of triumph (Exodus 15:1) has its antitype in the saints’ “song of Moses and of the Lamb” (Revelation 15:3). “For Messiah Jesus, not the papal beast ruling one world government, is the King of nations” (Jeremiah 10:7). As Moses was leader of the Israelites under the Old Testament, Jesus is “the Captain” of those who conquer through Him (Romans 8:37-39; Revelation 12:11) in the antitype of the passage through the Red Sea under the Pillar of Cloud which was Israel’s baptism (Exodus 15:1-21). Isaiah 12:1-6 foretells the song of the redeemed after the antitypical second exodus and deliverance at the Egyptian Sea.

“Who shall not fear you, O Lord, and glorify your name? for you alone are holy: for all nations (Psalm 22:27-31; Isaiah 66:23; Jeremiah 16:19) shall come and worship before you; for [the righteousness of] your judgments is made manifest”.

Under the revelation of the Sixth Seal Brother Branham explained, “the Sixth Seal . . . was for a threefold purpose . . . The first thing was that the sleeping virgins had to go through the tribulation period for purification. She had to be purged of her sins of unbelief and rejecting the Message . . .”

“Now, she’s not the Bride, but it’s the church, the pure people that didn’t have the opportunity, maybe, to receive the Message, or in some way that they were blinded by these false prophets, and they didn’t get a chance . . . and God knows their heart, and here they’re purged during this time.”

“You notice that another purging time; that’s for Israel when she gathers. That’s the second fold. God purges Israel in the tribulation period. Out of the millions that’ll gather there, there’ll be a selected one hundred and forty-four thousand, and they will be purged also. God’s purging Israel.”

Notice, there is a whole earth to be purged . . . the moon, stars, and all nature will be purged . . . The earth is renewing herself, being purged, getting ready for the millennium . . . everything that’s got any filth in it is to be purged during the Sixth Seal” (Ibid, p. 575, 1-4; Matthew 27:25).

Because Revelation 15:2-4 was a parenthesis, verses 5-7 should be read after verse 1, they pertain to the Seven Vials that have been poured out on nominal Christians after the close of each Church Age. “After these things [in the parenthesis describing the martyrdom of the foolish virgins and others whose names remain in the Book of Life, and 144,000 elect Israelites in the second half of the Week] I . . . [your name here] . . . looked again and saw the (Gk.) ‘naos,’ tabernacle of witness or Holy of Holies in the heaven [containing the Ark of the testimony and the tables of God’s Law. God’s faithfulness in avenging His people with judgments on their foes is about to be set forth on the strength of this perpetual witness of His presence among His people. And there came out from the temple the seven angels having the seven plagues, clothed in linen pure and glistening [to signify the righteousness of these judgments], and girt about the breast with golden girdles [as judges]. [As we have already stated, these plagues are poured out on those who have refused to return, or have rejected the sanctuary, the tabernacle of witness, which the Lord pitched among men, and who have refused, like obstinate builders, the Capstone which has become the head of the corner]. And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden vials full of the anger of God, who lives forever and ever.”

Verse 8, “And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, until the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished”.

As in the wilderness (Exodus 40:34-35), and as at the dedication of Solomon’s temple (I Kings 8:10-11), the tokens of God’s presence filled the temple, so it is now, but with a difference: it is smoke, not cloud, which is the symbol of God’s presence. “As Mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended on it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole Mount quaked greatly,” (Exodus 19:18). This vision most nearly corresponds with that of Isaiah 6; there the prophet beheld the vision of God; His train filled the temple, and the house was filled with smoke; a Message of judgment was given to the prophet; it declared that the sin of the people had reached a climax: they had trifled with convictions, and henceforth the words of God’s servants would harden rather than awaken them. “Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes . . .” till the desolating judgments had fallen. A type of Revelation 15:7-8 and the condemnations in the letters to each of the angels to the Church. The days of warning are over: the plagues which now fall will fall on those who have trifled with convictions: the sanctuary which was opened as a refuge is now closed (Revelation 9:13-14): none can enter till the plagues have descended. The time has come when the judgments of God fail to stir the conscience which has been deadened by sin; the day when the gracious influences towards repentance was felt has passed. The word that has been spoken is about to descend in judgment).

Did I hear someone say “Los Angeles”? Brother Branham proclaimed, “The Day of vengeance of our God” (Isaiah 61:2b), “And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done” (Revelation 16:17). The New Testament saints may enter the temple, let the first resurrection and translation of “we who are alive and remain” commence. nl1008.htm

‘A Strange Coincidence’: US Spy Plane circled near Russian Base during Massive Drone Attack

January 9, 2018 — The Russian military in Syria thwarted a massive drone attack at the Khmeimim air base and Russian Naval point in the city of Tartus on January 6, intercepting 13 heavily armed UAVs launched by terrorists . . . noting . . . a US spy plane spotted in the area . . . during the time of the attack. Russian Ministry of Defense . . . demonstratively pointed out that the technology used in the attack was telling. Advanced training in engineering in “one of the developed countries” would be necessary to program the principal controllers and bomb-release systems of an aircraft-type combat drone, the Russian statement stressed and added that “not everyone is also able to get exact [attack] coordinates from the space surveillance data.” Full story: zerohedge.com


John 16:13-15 Manifest: soon comes the Earthquake ending the Gentile Dispensation

“When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth: for He will not speak on His own account but will say whatever He hears, and He will make known to you what is to take place. He will glorify Me: for He will take what is Mine and declare it to you. Everything the Father has is Mine: therefore I said, that He will take from what is mine and declare it to you”.

Monday January 8, 2018 at 18:42 I received this email from our Brother (and contributor to our Newsletter), Boyd Reneau:

> I had a strange dream about a week ago . . . I was walking by the sea side and did not realize when I had entered the sea and it had covered me, but the water was clear, clear as crystal, I could see way out to the horizon to the bottom of the sea in living colour. Other people were there and even houses or little buildings. Blissful hardly describes the heavenly feeling I experienced. I was breathing just as I normally would on land and there was no upthrust as when you are in a normal body of water. Habakkuk’s words, “The Earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” is the only thing that comes to mind. Perhaps it could signal a glorious time ahead for Christ bride, what do you think?.

I replied: Your strange dream seems to be an assurance from the Lord that whatever should transpire in Belize, you are vouchsafed.

Tuesday January 9, 2018 4:48 PM I have received this email from our Brother:

> A 7.8 earthquake just struck east of Belize City. A tsunami warning is in effect and if any waves are coming our way it will be in about an hour’s time (10:30 PM local time)

> I’m calling the brethren and we are trusting the Lord to see us safely through. Keep us in prayer.

Comment: About two hours after the quake, the center said the threat had passed, withdrawing all tsunami advisories connected with the quake. The tremors were felt in Belize’s capital, Belize City, but there were no immediate reports of damage.

“O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever.” His grace was upon us as His people and it was extended to the countries around. I heard on the news a major hotel was cracked as a result of the quake and I am sure other buildings sustained damages that will be determined in daylight hours. An initial check shows our house intact and I have not heard anything negative from the brethren.

We had to leave home for a higher sturdier place in case possible incoming waves were higher than expected. We have never been in such a situation before and we live less than a mile from the seaside, we had to get higher to safety as many others in the city. Emergency shelters were opened sometime around 9:45pm.

The Scripture I believe I was led to read just before we prayed as a family was Psalm 89:8-9, “Who is like you, Lord God Almighty? You, Lord, are mighty, and your faithfulness surrounds you. You rule over the surging sea; when its waves mount up, you still them”.

That was a blessing all by itself. Thank you for praying and sending the request to several of the brethren—we bless the Lord our God for all His goodness. He stilled those waves so even the 3ft to 5ft waves predicted did not lift themselves up to our shores. He is granting our requests to build much greater faith for that hour that will very soon be upon us which is the manifestation of the sons of God. Glory to His Name.


US Winks, Israel Bites? The Escalation Scenario. The War on Iran is ‘On Hold’?

January 4, 2018 — The war on Iran project . . . on the drawing board . . . since the mid-nineties . . . “In early 2003 . . . the Army had already begun . . . an analysis for a full-scale war with Iran . . . US and British planners conducted a Caspian Sea war game . . And Bush directed the US Strategic Command to draw up a global strike war plan for an attack against [non-existent] Iranian weapons of mass destruction [Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program nor is there any evidence that they were trying to develop one. Like Saddam’s fictitious Weapons of Mass Destruction, “Iran’s nukes” are largely a myth created to justify nonstop US-Israeli aggression . . .

Iran has no nukes, no nuclear weapons program, and no sinister nuclear project aimed at blowing up Israel or the United States. It’s all 100 percent bunkum conjured up by the same propagandists in the establishment media who concocted the mobile weapons labs, the yellowcake uranium, the aluminium tubes, curveball and the myriad other cockamamie fabrications that preceded the invasion of Iraq.

It’s also worth noting that “Forty-five US military bases encircle Iran, with over 125,000 troops in close proximity” and that both Republican and Democratic presidents have repeatedly expressed their support for regime change in Tehran. Moreover, the vast majority of Senators and Congressmen have frequently expressed their contempt for Iran while supporting covert activities to destabilize the government or punish the people. Ideally, Trump and his lieutenants would like to replace the Islamic clerics who currently rule Iran, with a puppet like the Shah who privatized oil production, ruled the country with an iron fist, and faithfully followed Washington’s diktats to the letter.

CIA logoThe Shah’s reign of terror lasted a full 40 years during which time his CIA-trained secret police, the SAVAK, rounded up and tortured millions of innocent Iranians who were then systematically subjected to “whipping and beating, electric shocks, extraction of teeth and nails, boiling water pumped into the rectum, heavy weights hung on the testicles, tying the prisoner to a metal table heated to a white heat, inserting a broken bottle into the anus, and rape.” This is how the United States brought freedom and democracy to the people of Iran under the Shah. Check it out] . . .

US foreign policy is to encourage America’s allies “to do the dirty work on our behalf” . . . [but] Israel and the Zionist Lobby . . . Netanyahu and the Presidents of the 52 Major Jewish American Organizations are leading President Trump, like a puppy on a leash, into a major war with Iran . . . Trump has swallowed this fantasy wholesale and is pushing our nation toward war . . . (James Petras, Global Research, October 27, 2017) . . . US military controls Israel’s Air Defense . . . Israel would not be able to act unilaterally against Iran . . . war on Iran, were it to occur would be a joint US-Israeli endeavour . . .

US hegemony is threatened in the broader Middle East Central Asian region. The structure of alliances and “cross-cutting coalitions” in 2018 does not favour a US-led military operation against Iran . . . While a conventional war on Iran is currently on hold, the US has indelibly opted for nonconventional warfare including destabilization, economic sanctions, infiltration, cooptation and regime change . . . its longtime strategic option of inducing its closest allies including Saudi Arabia and Israel to “wage war on its behalf” . . . a first strike tactical nuclear weapons attack is still “on the table.” So are intelligence . . . recruitment of hired “jihadist” terrorists, the funding of insurgencies . . . a panoply of nonconventional weapons systems including electromagnetic, chemical and biological weapons). War is a criminal undertaking which is supported by the US media . . .

Comment: Should Israel and the US attack Iran shortly before earthquakes sink Los Angeles and divide the Mount of Olives, I doubt Russia and China will need to aid Iran’s. Rather Israel will be utterly defeated as Zechariah and Jesus Christ prophesied, and Russia will invade and briefly occupy mainland USA as Ezekiel, Jesus, and Brother Branham prophesied. Retired army major general and incoming Liberal senator Jim Molan has raised concerns over the US capability to help Australia in the event of a military crisis. The united States is the image unto the beast” of Revelation 13:13-18. Syrian pro-government activists viewed the visit of the [US proxy] Free Syrian Army as another attempt by Washington to destabilize the situation in Syria and reignite the war that slowed down after the de-facto defeat of ISIS.


The ‘Rapture’

Three is a witness. We find three raptures in the Old Testament: Enoch (Genesis 5:24), Elijah (II Kings 2:11), and Jesus Christ who had to die and then rapture for He is the Keystone between the Old and the New Testaments (Matthew 27:45-53). The first rapture in the New Testament was Lazarus (John 11:43-44), the second will be the catching away of the Bride (I Thessalonians 4:12-18), and the third will be the two witnesses of Revelation 11:11-12.

Enoch, one man called out from the seventh generation from the first Adam and translated types Christ’s end-time Bride called out from Laodicea, the seventh generation from the last Adam, and translated (Jude 14). Clearly Cain was not Adam’s son else Enoch would be Adam’s eighth generation.

The rapture is the threefold PROCESS as Paul expounded in I Thessalonians 4:16-17, “Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a Shout, and 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 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.” In actual fact, represented by John the revelator, every member of Christ’s end-time Bride was accounted caught up in Revelation 4.

The Lord descended from heaven upon Mount Sunset in the Coronado State Forest, forty miles north east of Tucson on March 8, 1963 with the Book of Redemption open in His left hand, “and cried with a loud Voice, as when a lion roars” (Revelation 10:1-6). The “shout” was Brother Branham’s Message: “Behold the Bridegroom, come ye out [from your man-made denominational church] to meet Him [without the camp]”  (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4). “Jesus came from Heaven with ten thousands times ten thousands of His Saints, and the Bible says that “the Heavens was empty for the space of a half hour” (I Thessalonians 4:14; Jude 14; Revelation 8:1). Where is this big fellow, God, then? See? He’s in Christ!” There is NO trinity in your Bible (The Sardisean Church Age, p. 348, 96).

The ‘rapture’ is a revelation that separates Christ’s end-time Bride from the things of the world by unfolding the mystery of the seven unknown thunders which are the mysteries contained in the Seven Seals. It is these divinely revealed mystery truths that literally turn the hearts of the children to the faith of their Pentecostal fathers as they receive the “shout” of the Message of the Prophet of Malachi 4:5, 6b and Revelation 10:7. This is the “midnight cry” of Matthew 25:6 rousing the virgins from denominational slumber to “make themselves ready for the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the sky, dressed in the righteous works of the saints” (Revelation 19:7-9). This Message is Christ Himself—the fullness of “the Word spoken by the mouth of ALL God’s holy prophets since the world began” (Acts 3:23; I Corinthians 13:10; Revelation 10:7).

The second stage of this process is the “Voice of [Christ] the Archangel” speaking within their heart to confirm the Message from Genesis to Revelation and bring them to maturity in “the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation” (Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:19).

The third stage is the Seventh Trump that will mark the close of the Christian dispensation of grace and call the resurrection of the Church Age saints— dispensation by dispensation while “we who are alive and remain” manifest by the ‘third pull’ that we are the Sons of God, not as a public display, but for our necessities and to built faith for translation grace.

Jesus said “no man knows the day nor the hour,” He did NOT say no man could know the year, month or week in which His coming was to be completed. Leviticus 23:4-21 informs us of the month and week, as does Matthew 27:50-53, our type. On Nisan 14 (which will be March 30 in 2018), “Jesus, when He had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom; the earth quaked and the rocks rent; and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, and came out of the graves after His resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared to many”.

Rome and her apostate (once) Protestant daughter churches will soon “crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame,” ending the dispensation of grace (Hebrews 6:6). This blasphemy will be marked by “a great earthquake such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great” (Revelation 16:18) at the manifestation of the Seventh Trump, Sixth Seal and Seventh Vial, expounded at length in Newsletters 1004-1006 in which we have pointed to what we understand will be the year. Three days later, that is, on Nisan 16 (which in 2018 will be April 1, the first day of the antitype of Israel’s Pentecostal Feast), the resurrection of the Church Age saints will commence.

Christ’s end-time Bride will quickly become a hunted and persecuted little group warning friends and loved ones to renounce and refuse “the mark of the beast” which is trinitarianism. However at this time, “there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” (Luke 21:25-26). The churches being organised and experienced in crisis and emergency relief but oblivious to spiritual realities, and the nations under martial law, we will be reported to civil authorities. In our type, “many of the saints which slept will arise . . . and appear to many” (Matthew 27:53).

After the Church Age saints have put on glorified flesh, one will appear to you; your recognition of that individual will “raise faith in you to change in the atoms and be caught up together with them in the Clouds, to meet the Lord in the air . . . when the Day of Pentecost has fully come” again.


 

Revelation Chapter 14 – Israel’s Regeneration and Martyrdom

Revelation 13:13-14: “The united States worked great wonders, raining [nuclear] fire down from heaven [upon Hiroshima and Nagasaki] in the sight of men. By such wonders it is allowed to work in the presence of the [Papal Roman] beast, transcending the common course of nature, it deceives those who dwell on the earth, bidding them to make a [Protestant] image to the beast which had the wound by a sword, and yet lived”.

This development will unite the nations behind a Vatican-led federation to rescue the capitalist system from takeover by the Eastern Bloc following the failure of the USD upon the sinking of Los Angeles, much of California, offshore devastation, the brief ‘hot stage’ of World War III, Israel’s utter defeat, the invasion of mainland USA and collapse of the global economy. as prophesied by Moses, Daniel and Jesus, Rome in covenant with the Jewish international banksters will very soon refinance the USD with gold backing and rule one totalitarian world government unto the consummation.

“When the Bride is translated to glory the tribulation period sets in upon the sleeping virgin for three and a half years while Israel is getting its prophecy; then [in the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week] tribulation sets in upon Israel: the battle of Armageddon destroys all things. Then the Bride returns with the Groom for the millennium reign of a thousand years; after that comes the White Throne Judgment followed by the new heavens and new earth and the New City comes down from God out of heaven. Eternity and time blend together” (COD, p. 1,160:Q392).

Papal keysRevelation 14 follows Revelation 13:15-18: “And [the united States] had power to give life to this World Council of Churches, so that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause those who would not make obeisance to the image of the beast to be killed. And it causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to be marked in their right hand [indicating servitude], or in their foreheads [signifying receipt of trinitarian dogma]: so that no man might buy or sell unless he has the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name [VICARIVS FILII DEI, which means substitute for Christ, or in place of the Holy Spirit]. Here is wisdom. Let he who has understanding count the number of the beast [5 + 1 + 100 + 1 + 5 + 1 + 50 + 1 + 1 + 500 + 1 = 666] for it is the number of a man [the Pope]; and his number is six hundred threescore and six”.

NATO logo“At this very time, the antichrist covenant that the Jews have made with Rome will be broken (Isaiah 28:18; Daniel 9:27; 7:25; 12:7; Revelation 17:11-17). Rome and her allies then send their troops [NATO and the Black Nobility’s ‘coalition of the willing’] to destroy all the God-fearing, Word-abiding Jews Israelites. But as they come against the city to destroy it, there will appear in the heavens the sign of the Coming of the Son of man with His mighty armies to destroy them who have been destroying the earth [(Zechariah 12:1-8; Revelation 11:18)]. With the enemy repulsed, Jesus then comes and presents Himself to the 144,000 (Zechariah 12:9 – 13:9). Having seen His mighty acts of salvation, they have come to know His power. But also seeing His wounds and knowing that they had rejected Him even to that moment, causes them to cry out in the agony of terror and fear, even as did their brethren of old when they stood before Joseph, being sore afraid that they would be killed. But as Joseph said, “Don’t be angry with yourselves. It is all right. God was in it all. He did it to preserve life” (Genesis 45:5). Even so will Jesus speak peace and love to them” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 41).

Throughout the Book of Revelation John represent’s Christ’s end-time Bride receiving the revelation of the unsealed Book from William Branham, “the seventh angel” and prophet of Revelation 10:7, the sole person to whom Jesus revealed the mystery of the Sealed Book (Revelation 1:1). So wherever you read “I,” replace it with your name as a member of Christ’s end-time Bride who will not see death.

Revelation 14:1, (your name here . . . . . “turned away from the beast and his image (in Revelation 13:14-18); my attention was drawn to a new vision. And, lo, the Lamb standing on the Mount Zion, and with Him a hundred and forty-four thousand chosen [blood Israelites (Revelation 7:4)—not a self-styled Jew among them] having His Father’s Name [singular] written in their foreheads” signifying adoption (Revelation 7:3-4). As in Matthew 28:19, Luke 24:47, Acts 2:38-39, His Name is “LORD JESUS CHRIST.” God is One Person, there is no trinity.

Revelation 14 is set after the midst of Daniel’s Seventieth Week and the sealing of the 144,000 elect Israelites. Jeremiah 31:33-34, “This shall be the [New] Covenant that I will make with the house of Israel . . . says the Lord, I will put My law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be My people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they will all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, said the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more”.

Isaiah 66:1-10 implies that God will disregard Israel’s third (Hebrews 10:11-25). Israel’s non-Semitic first Prime Minister David ben Gurion proposed would be a “UN shrine of the prophets [presumably including Mohammed, Joseph Smith, Herbert W. Armstrong, Benjamin Creme, Menachem Mendel Schneerson] to serve the federated union of all continents” the same abomination as that planned by Vatican II (Look Magazine, January 16, 1962; Amos 3:3). For “The heaven is His throne, and the earth is His footstool [on which I set My feet overruling all of its affairs according to My will, and the place of His rest],” and in the millennium the 144,000 will themselves be His Temple as is His Bride today. Likewise in the renewed heavens and renewed earth an external temple will no longer exist (Revelation 21:22-23).

I Corinthians 3:16, “Don’t you know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”

In John 4:21-24 Jesus said, “An hour is coming when neither in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, shall you worship the Father . . . But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth [revelation]: for such people the Father seeks to worship Him. God is a Spirit: and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.” Since Calvary and the Day of Pentecost external ritual and ceremony, from persons void of faith and virtue, destitute of true piety, was no more worthy in His sight than the material temple.

Israel CrestIsaiah 66:5-10, “Listen to the Message of the Lord, you who stand in awe of His Word: your brethren who hate you and spurn you for My sake, said, Let the Lord be glorified that we may see your joy, but they shall be confounded. Listen, a thunderous Voice from the city, a Voice from the temple, a Voice of the Lord rendering recompense to His enemies. Before Zion travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child [the regenerated Israel of God—all 144,000 of them]. Who ever heard of such a thing? Who ever saw its like? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? Shall a nation be born in one day? for as soon as Zion travailed, she also brought forth her sons. Shall I bring to the point of birth and not give delivery? says the Lord: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? says your God. Be joyful with Jerusalem and rejoice for her, all you who love her. Be exceedingly glad with her, all you who mourn over her” (Revelation 11:18-19).

Also in Revelation 14:1-5 we see the 144,000 sealed pending martyrdom. Verses 2-5, “And I heard a Voice from the heaven, as a Voice of many waters [multitudes], and as a Voice of great thunder,” the voice or revelation of these born-again Israelites is now “the mind of Christ” (I Corinthians 2:16; Colossians 1:27). As in Revelation 4:5 God spoke to His church through seven measures of His Spirit anointing seven men whose “voices (plural), speaking with thunder and lightning” anointed the saints predestinated to their Age, the voices of the new-born Israelites speak as one Voice which I heard as the sound of harpers harping with their harps. And they sing as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures, and the elders,” [the Old Testament saints and Christ’s glorified Bride of ALL Ages in heaven (Revelation 7:9-10)]. When the true anointed of God speak, it is the Voice of God, and to reject its Message is to remove the lampstand. The song is new only in comparison with Moses’ song of redemption for it is, in truth, as old as God’s eternal purpose. They sing in anticipation of martyrdom certain of sure victory over Satan’s trinity, the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet (Revelation 13; 15:2-3; 16:13).

“And no one on earth was able to learn the song but the hundred and forty-four thousand that were bought from the earth [as only their names were written in the Lamb’s Book of Life]. These are they who were not defiled with women [—Rome and her (once Protestant) harlot daughter churches]; for they are virgins [to the Word]. These are they who follow the Lamb whithersoever He may go. These were bought from among men, being a first fruit unto God and the Lamb. And no falsehood was found in their mouth: for they are blameless”.

Israel is our servant nation, the 144,000 are the Bride’s attendants, typed by the eunuchs who served the king’s harem (Matthew 19:12). Unlike Christ’s Bride they cannot pass the Life through the Body so their number is precisely 144,000. The eunuchs were the keepers of the bridal chambers. Notice that they do not sit in the throne but are before the throne. They are not in the bride but they will be in the glorious millennial reign.

Verses 6-11 form a parenthesis wherein we encounter the three angels to the Reformation of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic system of false worship. “And I saw another angel flying in the mid-heaven, having the everlasting Gospel, to declare glad tidings unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and tribe, and tongue, and people, saying with a great voice, Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him who made the heaven, and the earth, and the sea, and fountains of waters.” This was Martin Luther announcing the final judgment by the eternal Gospel: the just shall live by faith alone.

“And another, second angel followed saying, Babylon the Great is fallen, is fallen, that great city, who gave all nations to drink of the wine of the rage of her fornication [idolatry].” This was the angel John Wesley who restored scriptural holiness in the Church, which requires separation from the things of the world unto Christ the Word without distraction (I Corinthians 7:34-35).

“And another, third angel followed them, saying with a great voice, If anyone worships the wild beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead, or in his hand, he also shall drink of the wine of the anger of God, which is poured out undiluted [by grace and hope] into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever: and those who worship the wild beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name have no rest day or night. Here is the endurance of the [Israelite] saints who keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”

The third angel was William Branham (1909-1965) whose ministry “restored the faith once delivered to the saints” (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11; Jude 3), “finished the mystery of God” (Amos 3:7; Romans 16:25; Revelation 10:7), and introduced Christ’s second or (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming “as a thief” (Matthew 24:3b, 27, 30, 37, 39; Revelation 3:3; 10:1-4; 16:15). He revealed the mysteries of the Seven Thunders in Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals. It is these divinely revealed ‘mystery-truths’ that literally turn the hearts of the children to the apostolic faith. His Message warned the wise and foolish virgins to come out of Babylon, and be filled with the Spirit to escape the mark of the beast.

Justification by grace through faith, sanctification, and the baptism with the Holy Ghost will transform the 144,000 into “written epistles” of the Word for their day atone with the faith of Jesus Christ.

Throughout seven Church Ages the Bible was sealed with Seven Seals: in consequence “our knowledge was fragmentary and our ministry imperfect(I Corinthians 13:9). As mediator, Christ the Son of God received the Word for the Age and “winked at this ignorance” of the fullness so that an election could be born-again. The Reformation of the Judaeo-Roman Catholic system of false worship ended in 1963 when Christ fulfilled Revelation 4, 5, and 10:1-7, “loosed the Seven Seals” and revealed their mystery through His prophet, William Branham. The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form in the prophetic office Son of man as King of kings and Judge (John 5:27). “Since that which is compete, the fullness of the Word has come, that which was fragmentary—PART-Word and Christ’s mediation—was done away” (I Corinthians 13:10), and Redemption is over. Christ’s end-time Bride and the 144,000 elect Israelites, being predestinated to receive the fullness of the Word by revelation of the Seven Seals or revelation of the Seven Trumpet mysteries have no need of mediation and were fully redeemed in Christ on Calvary.

When the last Trumpet sounds the harvest will be complete, the Day of the Lord will commence the vintage to try, sift and purge 144,000 elect Israelites in “the time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7; Daniel 12:10; Zechariah 13:7b-9; Malachi 3:2-6; Revelation 6:11; 12:12-17), thereafter judgment will smite His enemies and theirs (Revelation 13:8; 19:19-21).

Verses 12-13 follow verse 5, as verses 6-11 are in parenthesis and describe how the elect 144,000 must persevere to endure martyrdom and not yield to the mark of the beast. “Here is the perseverance of the Israelite saints, who keep the Commandments of God [not the Talmudic traditions of men that make the Word of God of none effect (Matthew 15:1-9)], and the faith of Jesus”.

Revelation 13:7-13, “And the [Satan-incarnate] Papal beast was allowed to make war with the Israelite saints and to conquer them: and authority was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all who dwell on earth, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world, will worship him. If any man has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity: he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints”.

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth [the American buffalo signifying the united States]; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke like the dragon. He exercises the full authority of the first beast in his presence, whose deadly wound was healed. He works great miracles, makes atomic fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, and forces the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast”.

Revelation 14:13, “I heard a voice from the heaven say, Write, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord henceforth: Yea, said the Spirit, they are indeed blessed in dying as martyrs “for the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus Christ” they shall enter their rest” (Matthew 27:25; Revelation 6:11).

Verses 14-20 describe the martyrdom of the 144,000 elect Israelites. Brother Branham helps us to place these events chronologically.

“And I saw, and beheld a white cloud, and sitting upon the cloud was one like [Messiah Jesus] the Son of man, having upon His head a golden crown of victory [the hour of conquest is at hand] (Psalm 21:3; Daniel 7:13-14; Matthew 26:64; Revelation 19:11-21). As the Lamb on Mount Zion in verse 1 Christ was standing; here as the Warrior King He appears seated on the white cloud to execute judgment on the world, and in His hand a sharp sickle to harvest the vintage”.

Joel 3:12-14, “Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: go in and tread, for the wine press is full, the vats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near, in the valley of decision”.

Revelation 1:7, “Behold, He comes with clouds; and EVERY eye shall see Him, and they also who pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen.”

“He is coming. Jesus is coming. God is coming. The Prophet is coming. The Priest and King is coming. The ALL in ALL is coming. Even so, Lord Jesus, come quickly. Amen. He is coming. He is coming in clouds, Clouds of glory as when He was seen upon the Mount of Transfiguration, and His garments were shining as the power of God enfolded Him.”

Matthew 17:1-8, “After six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, and brought them up into a high mountain by themselves, and He was transfigured before them: and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them talking with Him”.

Three is a witness: Peter, James and John represent the 144,000 elect Israelites while “Moses and Elijah” type two Hebrew prophets with the same enduement (Zechariah 4:12-14; Matthew 24:31; Revelation 11:3-12) who will separate them from among their brethren who return to the Land of the Covenant in the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week after the mass exodus of Jews to their homelands of Khazaria, Lower Mongolia, etc., following Israel’s utter defeat in the brief ‘hot stage’ of the ongoing World War III.

“Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles; one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah. [Three denominations]? While he was speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a Voice out of the cloud, said, This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased; hear Him. And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces, and were much afraid. And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, be not afraid. And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus alone”.

Israel’s two prophets will be martyred by the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church after she abrogates the covenant with the Jewish banksters in the midst of Daniel’s Seventieth Week (Daniel 9:27; 12:7; Revelation 11:3-12).

“And EVERY eye shall see Him. That means this is not the Rapture.” [The rapture is the threefold PROCESS explained by Paul in I Thessalonians 4:16. It commenced after the Lord opened the Seven Seals, descended with the Book open in His hand on March 8, 1963, and revealed its mystery through His Prophet between March 17 and 24, 1963 (Revelation 10:1-7). The “Shout” was the Prophet’s Message (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 18:4). The “Voice of the Archangel” is Christ whispering His amours in the heart of His Bride and 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 8:19; I Corinthians 15:52). This is where Christ’s Bride is today, fifty-five years after the commencement of “the silence in heaven about the space of half an hour” (Revelation 8:1). The “Trump” will sound the close of the Gentile dispensation, herald the first resurrection and call Israel to their feast of Trumpets]. This is when Christ comes to take over His rightful place as World Ruler. This is when those who have pierced Him with their creeds and denominational doctrines shall mourn, and all the people shall wail in terror because of Him Who is the Word. Christ’s Bride will have been resurrected and translated to the Wedding Supper for almost seven years when EVERY Eye sees Him. At this time the rapture will be past history.

“This is the revelation story of Zechariah 12:9-14. Zechariah prophesied this about 2,500 years ago. It is just about to take place. Listen. “And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me Whom they have pierced . . .”

This will be Israel’s belated recognition of Christ’s second or (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming toward the end of the second half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week shortly before Armageddon. “What we have read in Revelation and in Zechariah come right after the tribulation. The Church of the first-born does not go through the tribulation.”

“At that time it says that God is going to pour out His Spirit upon the house of Israel. It is the same Spirit that was poured upon the Gentiles in their day. “And they shall look upon Me Whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and they shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his first-born. In that day there shall be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadad-rimmon in the valley of Megiddon. And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart . . .” and each one of the houses apart when He comes in clouds of glory at His Second Coming. Those Jews that pierced Him shall see Him as it says in another Scripture, “Whence did You get those wounds?” and He will say, “In the house of My friends.” Not only will it be a mournful time for the Jews who rejected Him as Messiah, but it will be a mournful time for those left of the Gentiles who have rejected Him as the Saviour of this day.”

“There’ll be weeping and wailing. The sleeping virgins will be wailing. They represent the church that refused to get oil (symbol of the Holy Spirit) in their lamps (symbol of the body or holder of the oil) until it was too late. It wasn’t that they were not good people. They were virgins and that signifies a high moral order. But they didn’t have oil in their lamps so they were cast out where there was wailing and gnashing of teeth . . .”

“The Bride will be taken off the earth. She will be caught up before the great tribulation to meet her Lord in the air. For three and one-half years while the retributive wrath of God is poured out, she will be in the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Then will He return, leaving His Bride in “His Father’s house,” while He makes Himself known to His brethren” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 36–42).

Verse 15-16, “And another angel forth came out of the temple (Revelation 10:1-2; 11:1, 18-19), crying with a great voice to Him who sat upon the cloud, Send forth Your sickle, and reap: for the hour is come to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And He who sat on the Cloud cast His sickle over the earth; and the earth was reaped”.

There is a difference between the vintage and the harvest. There is an autumn gladness about the harvest: there are tokens of judgment in the vintage. It is not the sharp sickle alone which is required: the winepress, the winepress of God’s wrath, is called into use. “An angel from the (Gk.) ‘naos’ or sanctuary calls to the Son of man [it is time] to reap the harvest. Then another angel came from the sanctuary (Revelation 11:18-19) which is in the heaven, he also having a sharp sickle”.

“And another angel, who has authority over fire; came out [NOT from the sanctuary but from the altar], where the blood of the sacrifice was poured, beneath which covering “the souls of non-elect Israelites martyred under the Fifth Seal for the Word of God and the testimony which they held cried with loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true do you not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth” (Revelation 6:9-10). “The vintage, the hour of vengeance, has come!” Significantly the angel to whom this cry is addressed comes forth from the Temple, for “judgment must begin at the house of God” (I Peter 4:17), and it is fit “to recompense tribulation to the troublers of Israel” whose blood is now to cover the earth (Exodus 23:22; II Thessalonians 1:6; Revelation 14:20).

“And he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, Send forth your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, for her grapes are ripe [for punishment] (Joel 3:13; Matthew 13:39-41). And the angel swung his sickle into the earth, and gathered the clusters of the vine of the earth [of wicked and earthly men, whose vine is the vine of Sodom, for her grapes are fully ripe; their wickedness very great, their iniquity full, the measure of their sins filled up; they are fitted for destruction and ripe for ruin] (Deuteronomy 32:32-43; Ezekiel 15:2-5; Joel 3:13).

Verses 19-20, “And the angel cast in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God because its grapes are not what God looked for considering its careful culture, but “wild grapes” (Isaiah 5:1-30). And the winepress was trodden [in the vineyard] without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs”.

“How striking it must’ve been. Think of it. The Messiah. Why did they fail to see Him? Because their very leaders that ought to have knowed Him, that ought to have been versed in the Scriptures, that ought to have been understanding of the Scriptures, they belittled this Man and said, “He’s an illegitimate child to begin with.” We wouldn’t believe that. Years later we don’t believe that; we would die for the purpose to say that He was a virgin born Son. And it’ll come to pass someday that the very things that we see Jehovah doing today, men in the ages to come, if there is, will die for the thing that we’re talking about today. You’ll have to do it when the mark of the beast comes on, and they’re not allowed to preach the Gospel this way” (This Day this Scripture is Fulfilled, p. 8:65). nl1007.htm

Of Billionaires, Fiscal Paradises, the World’s Debt, & the Victims

January 2, 2018 — Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index covers only the 500 richest people . . . they have increased their wealth by 1 trillion dollars in just one year. Their fortunes went up by 23% to top a comfortable 5 trillion dollars (the US budget is now at 3.7 trillion). That obviously means an equivalent reduction for the rest of the population, which has lost those trillion dollars . . . the amount of money circulation remains the same; no new money has been printed to accommodate the 500 richest billionaires! . . . China has now surpassed the US, with 594 billionaires . . .

The Institute for International Finance estimates that at the end of 2017 the global debt—private and public—would have reached a staggering 226 trillion dollars, more than three times global annual economic output . . . Globalisation is obviously rewarding capitals, not human beings. Well, this is having an impact on politics, and not the best one. There is everywhere an increasing number of losers, especially in rich countries, also because of technological development, and shift in consumption . . .

Israel & Palestine: the Maps tell the True Story

Palestine

The truth is that far from being the poor victim it likes to portray itself as, Israel is in fact the most aggressive and belligerent nation in the region, having invaded pretty much everyone it shares a border with. The following maps show just who is wiping who off of the map!

How does a defensive action result in the total conquest of someone else’s lands? The answer is that it does not. Israel is the aggressor. The maps of Israel then and now prove it . . . Another claim that Israel likes to make is that Palestine never really existed to start with. “How can we return the occupied territories? There is nobody to return them to” Golda Maier PM, March 8, 1969. “There was no such thing as Palestinians, they never existed” June 15, 1969.

“The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina”  (Exodus 15:14).

“Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent’s root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent. Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times” (Isaiah 14:29, 31).

“Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompense? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompense upon your own head” (Joel 3:4).

And again, the maps tell a different story . . . The History of Palestine—Jews Israelites and Arabs do NOT have a thousand year history of animosity! . . . [note Google’s YouTube has deleted some videos] . . . Full story: whatreallyhappened.com

Comment: One year after the ides of Nisan, likely in 2018, a mass exodus of non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Israeli Jews from Palestine will allow genuine sons of Jacob to return to the Land of the Covenant for their redemption without “fear of the Jews” (Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:6-16; 27:13; 49:17; Zechariah 14:2; Matthew 24:29-31, etc).


Syria 2011 all over again? Watch as Kurdish, Islamist Groups call for a Violent Uprising in Iran

December 30, 2017 — In Syria in 2011, peaceful protesters calling for economic and political reforms had their peaceful protests hijacked by armed Muslim Brotherhood [CIA, MI6, Saudi Arabia] fanatics who fired upon security forces, allowing for the protests to descend into a civil war. The same is now occurring in Iran . . . violence has been agitated by imperialist shills who are spreading fake news that the protests are about regime-change in Iran . . . details of a colour revolution descending can also be read here . . . this truly bares resemblance to what occurred in Syria in 2011.

Comment: While Russia strives to move Syria on from a stage of war and bloody anarchy to one of peace, stability and reconstruction—by inviting all parties to next month’s Sochi conference to agree a roadmap including a new constitution and presidential and parliamentary elections—the US and Israel are drawing up plans to detonate the region and plunge it into new wars on the pretext of confronting the Iranian threat . . . White House later confirmed the existence of the agreement . . . the coming year may prove to be a frightening one for the US and its Israeli ally . . . try their luck . . . outcomes will definitely not be to their liking. For the region is changing—and fast (raialyoum.com).

Lethally shooting around 20 or Iranians through New Year’s day, including at least one policeman, suggests foreign interference . . . around 27 percent of the new hash tags against Iran are generated by the Saudi government . . . Israel’s dirty hands are involved . . . so-called People’s Mujahedin of Iran . . . CIA-supported group calls for toppling the Islamic Republic violently.

Will mainland USA be invaded and briefly garrisoned in the first quarter 2018? (William Branham, The Handwriting on the Wall, #58-0101, p. 11:84-91; #58-0309, p. 19:152-155).


The Quad: US searches Edge of Asia for Allies to contain Beijing

December 28, 2017 — The so-called Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (Quad)—a coalition of sorts counting the United States, India, Australia, and Japan as members. Promoted by familiar corporate-financier funded policy think tanks, the Quad is being portrayed as a step past Washington’s ill-fated “pivot to Asia” to address its waning power in the region . . . including US efforts to undermine, overthrow, and replace with obedient client regimes the governments of several ASEAN states including Myanmar, Thailand, and Malaysia . . .

Another component was a series of artificial conflicts the US manufactured and then served as mediator in resolving surrounding the ongoing South China Sea territorial dispute. ASEAN collectively refused to become involved, and even supposed claimants in the dispute—Vietnam and the Philippines—have drifted away from the hardline approach proposed by the US to confront Beijing . . . The final component of America’s pivot to Asia was the proliferation of terrorism sponsored by Washington’s closest allies in the Middle East. This included a 2015 bombing in Bangkok . . . and the sudden appearance and spread of the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS) in the Philippines . . . Without the Quad, the US will have to search even further for partners in its quest for Asian primacy. With the UK signalling interest in sending warships around the planet to assist the US in provoking the Chinese off their own shores, perhaps Asia-Pacific will be relabelled once again . . . to Anglo-Pacific, and the Quad replaced by an Anglo-American Duo . . .

Will a War with North Korea be Our Political Leaders’ Greatest Regret?

December 27, 2017 — We are now on the verge of another unnecessary war—this time with North Korea . . . nuclear security expert Scott Sagan predicts one million people could die on the first day—a figure that exceeds the death toll of the entire Rwandan genocide. Even more worryingly, Russia and China are making military preparations, suggesting that a Korean war could quickly escalate into a world war.

Despite this horrific scenario, President Trump continues to ratchet tensions by issuing bombastic threats and overseeing provocative military exercises. He is increasingly keen to launch a “preventative” strike, and there are multiple indications that he plans to do so within the next three months unless North Korea agrees to denuclearize. At the same time, he is forbidding diplomacy, blocking any possibility of a peaceful solution to the crisis . . . war could be inevitable if Trump remains in power. Government leaders therefore have an ethical obligation to remove him from office before he fulfils his dream of using nuclear weapons. Impeachment, however, is no longer a viable solution—the impeachment process takes several months, whereas Trump is reportedly looking to drop the first bomb by March . . .

The Power of the Spoken Word

In 1954 the Lord showed Brother Branham a vision in which his local council would resume some of his land to widen the road. God said, “When you see the surveyor peg out a new boundary moving your gate, that will be the sign that you are to move westward”.

As you may have discerned, these symbols signified the approaching end of the Laodicean Church Age, when the broad road that leads to destruction would take in the Pentecostals, and the gate or place of God’s judgment and entrance into the Kingdom would move once again (Matthew 7:13-14; Deuteronomy 16:1-12; Revelation 3:20).

When that vision came to pass eight years later, the Prophet told his wife, “It’s time now, honey, we must turn west”.

On December 22, 1962, two days after that vision, while he was standing in his bedroom one morning, he went into the Spirit of the Lord, and saw some tiny little birds sitting in a bush in the form of a pyramid. They flew eastward and a flight of doves arrived from the west, flying east in pyramid formation. God wanted Brother Branham to be conscious of the fact that he would be in the desert near Tucson picking a burr off his clothes, looking back to his church in the east when this vision came to pass. No sooner had the doves flown out of his sight than he turned back west: there was a blast of thunder and he saw seven Angels come to him in the form of a pyramid—signifying that all seven portions of the Spirit that had anointed the seven Church Age messengers would anoint him to unfold the mystery of the Seven Seals. God said, “Turn westward and go to Tucson. You will be forty miles northeast picking a bull header off your clothes when this vision is fulfilled.”

Brother Branham related this vision to his congregation on December 30, 1962, in his recorded sermon, Sirs, is This the Time?

Body of ChristA constellation is made when fixed stars appear to form a separate and specific grouping, usually named with reference to the outline enclosing them. For instance, the Big Dipper, or the Bear. In Revelation 1:16 and 20 the seven angels are signified as stars. In his vision, these seven stars formed a pyramid-shaped constellation representing the capstone that was never placed on God’s second Bible, the Great Pyramid at Giza. It was never placed for it represented Jesus Christ the fullness of the Word, the Stone that the Hebrew builders and Laodicean churches rejected (Romans 9:33; 11:32; I Peter 2:6-10).

Brother Branham’s ministry was to “Restore the apostolic faith” (Malachi 4:5, 6b; Matthew 17:11), and to “Finish the mystery of God” (Revelation 10:7), or as Paul said, “When that which is perfect [the fullness of the Word] is come, that which was in part [PART-Word and a Mediator] will be done away” (I Corinthians 13:10). The revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ, placing the Capstone that finishes the Building back to earth in W-O-R-D form. Since then the fullness of the Word has been incarnating Christ’s end-time Bride when she sees it, to finish the Building in reality.

So we see that the pyramid-shaped constellation formed by the angels was an equilateral figure in which every angle and side was identical. It spoke of perfection when the loose ends of revelation, left unfinished through the death of the Church Age messengers, were gathered up by the Prophet and tied together by the revelation of the Seven Seals.

At the start of January 1963, Brother Branham and his family relocated from Jeffersonville to Tucson, Arizona. One morning he was awakened by the Lord and told to climb up into Sabino Canyon. Kneeling alone with hands upraised, he asked God to show him the meaning of the pyramid of seven angels. Suddenly a sword was in his hand and a Voice said, “This is the King’s Sword. Fear not. This is the Third Pull, and the vindication of your ministry”.

Then on February 28 the Supernatural Cloud prophesied in Daniel 7:9, Matthew 24:3b, 30 and Revelation 1:14 manifest in Arizona’s usually cloudless skies. This Cloud was a public witness and “the sign of the end-time” announcing that Jesus Christ would open and reveal the Seven Seals which would bring about His second or unseen (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming (Psalm 19:1-6; Daniel 12:4, 9).

When Brother Branham left Jeffersonville, tradesmen commenced the work of refurbishing his Tabernacle. This work was scheduled to take six weeks after which he had planned a series of meetings to teach on the Seven Seals of Revelation.

Pillar of Fire above Brother BranhamBrother Branham loved hunting and arranged with friends to take in the javelina pig season, which ran from March 1 to 10, before his Jeffersonville meetings. However after preaching Doors in a Doorin Tucson on February 23 their plans were unexpectedly postponed when he received a three-page telegram from Mr. Ted Kipperman, a Jew in partnership with a Catholic named Ayers who was married to a Jewess. These two unbelieving photographers had been engaged by a Baptist critic, the Rev. Dr. Best, to take his photograph threatening to skin Brother Bosworth in the auditorium of the Rice Hotel in Houston on January 24, 1950. Six photographs of Dr. Best waving his fist at Brother Bosworth turned out to be blank. God would not allow the photographers to dishonour his aged servant. The seventh photograph portrayed Brother Branham overshadowed by the Shekinah or Pillar of Fire that appeared above his head as he spoke. Ezekiel called it “the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord.” The telegraph was a deep apology by the Jewish photographer and an appeal to Brother Branham to intercede for his sister’s son who was to be executed. So Brother Branham drove to Houston where he entreated the governor in behalf of the boy and his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment.

On March 4 at a prayer meeting convened by the prison chaplain, long time friend Raymond Hoekstra, he preached The Absolute.” Immediately after service he and Brother Norman drove 1,100 miles back to Tucson for the remainder of the Javelina hunting season. The hunting party pitched camp on March 6 and Brother Branham shot his javelina the following day, March 7. Then on March 8 as he sat on Sunset Mountain picking a goat head from his trouser leg when a “blast” went off as seen in the vision.

Now both of these photographers had published insulting remarks about Brother Branham’s ministry, calling him a ‘hypnotizer.’ Whilst the upshot of the debate was that God honoured Brother Bosworth’s witness and Dr. Best’s folly was manifest before thousands. Many from his own denomination testified to having received God’s healing during the meetings that week. At the conclusion of the debate when Brother Branham took to the platform to close the meeting in a good spirit, the Shekinah appeared above his head and displayed in the image.

God used the unbelieving Dr. Best and the two photographers as witnesses to photograph the Pillar of Fire, develop the film and have it scientifically examined, certified authentic and registered for copyright. He turned their unbelief to His glory. Mr. Kipperman asked and obtained Brother Branham’s permission to reproduce and sell copies of this by now famous photograph for a fair price. When he was found to be overcharging by some two hundred percent, Brother Branham stopped him from selling at his meetings.

“It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. “Now here was Mr. Kipperman pleading with God’s Prophet, William Branham, to intercede in his behalf for the lives of his family. “Strike not My anointed, and do My prophets no harm.” By the grace of God and the Spirit of Christ in His prophet, their death sentences were commuted to imprisonment. When Brother Branham preached “The Absolute” in Brother Hoekstra’s Tabernacle that night he said, “I knew that those children were facing death, I thought if something would happen to those children I would never forgive myself for not coming here to give my opinion, and doing all that I could to help this mother and father of these children, and to do all that I could for the saving of their lives. And Houston is a memorable place to me. . . Mr. Ayers, Mr. Kipperman, the night that the camera proved that I wasn’t telling anything that was wrong: it was truth. And when the mechanical eye of the camera caught the . . . reality, the Christ that we preach and so love was with us, that He promised to be with us. And the camera took His picture” (John 13:3).

William BranhamUpon Sunset Mountain forty miles northeast of Tucson, and having already shot his pig, Brother Branham directed his companions to a place where they should find some pigs he had spotted. Climbing a vantage point he sat down to rest, and plucking a bull header off his trouser leg he realized he was in the vision but seeing a herd of hogs on the mountainside opposite he threw down the bull header, shouting, “I’ll get them, I’ll hang a piece of paper on this ocotillo to let you know which way to go, and we’ll get Brother Fred.”

He set off for the other mountain running as hard as he could when a sudden blast shook the whole country. He thought he’s been shot, but there before him stood a constellation of seven Angels. When he met the brethren, they asked, “What was that?”

He replied, “That was the vision [I reported in Jeffersonville on December 30, 1962 in the sermon, Sirs, is This the Time?]. I’m returning home, for THUS SAITH THE LORD, God is going to unfold those seven mysteries that have been sealed in the Bible for all of these years”.

The seven portions of the Spirit returned to the throne of God as signified in Revelation chapter four, and the mercy seat became a judgment seat. The elders were calling for a Kinsman Redeemer to claim the Title Deed to redemption and open the Seven Seals. God was about to anoint His Prophet to stand in the breach (see diagram) between the finished PART-Word divisions of the Body and the Capstone, to faithfully declare the revelation of the Seven Seals as Christ inspired it to him so that His end-time Bride could cross the chasm to their place in the Capstone of the fullness of the Word without a Mediator. For “it shall come to pass, that every soul, who will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people” (Acts 3:23).

Leaving Tucson on March 13, 1963, he returned to Jeffersonville where he delivered the revelation of the Seven Seals from March 17 to 23—ten days after the visitation of the angels on Sunset Mountain on March 8, and seventeen days after the heavenly sign (that appeared to the public on February 28)—God revealed them to Christ Who revealed them to Brother Branham under the seven successive anointings of the Spirit as signified by the vision and visitation of the seven angels. And when John was caught up in the Spirit in the Lord’s day he looked back and saw Brother Branham expounding these visions and wrote the Book of Revelation (Revelation 1:1, 11).

As John foretold in Revelation 3:14-22, the churches of Laodicea rejected the revelation of the Seals—which are Christ, the fullness of the Word—and put Him to an open shame outside their doors.

pyramid-shaped rock cur out by the WhirlwindOne year later, Brother Branham returned to Sunset mountain in the Coronado Forest for another javelina hunt, and on March 25, 1964 while walking in a westerly direction (toward the future) with his friend Banks Wood, God told His Prophet, “Throw up a rock, and say to Mr. Wood, ‘THUS SAITH THE LORD, you’ll see the Glory of God'” (Jeremiah 51:63-64; Revelation 18:21).

As Moses held his staff in faith over the Red Sea Brother Branham’s action in throwing up the rock as the Lord had commanded caused a vortex as it fell, symbolizing the whirlwind that would manifest. The following day whilst the party were in camp, it came down and blasted pyramid-shaped rocks from the mountainsides which cut the tops off trees about three or four feet above his head. It made three big blasts, and fifteen brethren ran over asking, “What was that?”

Brother Branham said, “Judgment is striking the west coast.” God shook the whole world, warning what He will do on a greater scale, when two days later, on March 28, 1964 an earthquake nearly sunk Alaska (William Branham, What is the Attraction on the Mountain? p. 22:143-148; Luke 19:40).

Lest any should underestimate the power of the 1964 Alaska earthquake, it was reported in the Virginian Pilot (November 12, 1967) that it actually moved mountains. It temporarily raised the level of the Mississippi River, and sent a seismic wave as far as the Antarctic! “The Commerce Department’s Coast and Geodetic Survey—more than three years after the Good Friday disaster—is still gathering data on the effects of the strongest earthquake ever recorded on the North American continent,” states this Associated Press story.

Some of its findings are incorporated in a technical report issued by the Environmental Science Services Administration. It said some Alaskan mountains subsided because of the quake, that the sea floor in one area rose as much as fifty feet and a seismic wave was recorded in the Antarctic twenty-two and a half hours after the quake.

“This giant wave”, the report said, “had travelled 8,445 miles at 430 miles an hour. The earthquake caused one hundred thirty-one deaths and more than $750 million in damage not only in Alaska but along the US Pacific coast as well”.

Here are some findings from the report: “The mountains on Kodiak Island and the Kenai Peninsula and the Chugach Mountains near Prince William Sound subsided seven feet or more. Earlier surveys revealed that some Kenai Peninsula Mountains shifted laterally about five feet”.

“The ocean floor rose in an area 480 miles by 127 miles with the highest upheaval fifty feet—the biggest ever recorded—between Kodiak and Montague Islands. Shock waves oscillated the water as far away as Key West, 3,968 miles distant. Surges of water began along the Gulf Coast of Louisiana and Texas between thirty and forty minutes after the quake” (Edgar Cayce on Prophecy, by Mary Ellen Carter, p. 68; ISBH 0-446-34223-8).

This earthquake warned of the massive earthquake Brother Branham prophesied will sink Los Angeles: “Fifteen hundred mile chunk of it three or four hundred miles wide will sink 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” (William Branham, A Thinking Man’s Filter, p. 25:145).

Brother Branham said, “this big earthquake happened in Alaska [on Good Friday March 27, 1964, as a token of the earthquake that will sink Los Angeles] and that would be the beginning of the sign of time” (The Invisible Union of the Bride of Christ; Matthew 24:3b). The fracture began in the Aleutian Islands; scientists interviewed on television traced a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth’s crust that will sink beneath the Pacific.

Presumably the New Madrid Fault Line parallel to the Mississippi River will become active, dumping waters from the Great Lakes through the State of Kentucky and forming a large inland sea all along the present Mississippi River—sinking much of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, portions of Georgia and Texas.

Furthermore the Prophet said, “I think that England would be sunk someday beneath the ocean. . .” (William Branham, Recognizing Your Day and Its Message, p. 26:147). And, “here on the (Florida) coast, which we know will someday go beneath the ocean, and there won’t be a stone left upon another. . .” [as when the Lord destroyed the Temple in AD70] (William Branham, Christ is Identified the Same, #64-0415).

“Nature is groaning. Everything seems to be out of cater. The sun doesn’t shine like it used to. Science tells us that the world is bulged out so many feet in the middle and that’s making the ocean more shallow in the center and deeper towards the north pole and the south pole. . . [I received an interesting YouTube from a Brother promoting the flat earth theory. If this is so I am unsure how “the ocean [can be made] more shallow in the center and deeper towards the north pole and the south pole”]? The stars are not in their orbits as they should be, and everything seems to be out of cater. It’s all waiting, groaning for that day of perfection, when our Lord Jesus shall come and perfect everything that’s imperfected” (William Branham, A Prophet like unto Moses, #59-1120; Watchman What of the Night, #60-0722).

Now although Brother Branham was a vindicated covenant prophet with THUS SAITH THE LORD, his is not a lone voice when it comes to these matters. In 1937, seventeen year old Joe Brandt recorded this series of visions he saw when he was hospitalized following a fall from his horse.

“For some time it has been known scientifically that a good portion of the coast of California is just a shell that projects out over the water like a shelf. It is known that one can go out from the shoreline a short distance on the California coast and then it just drops off, there seeming to be no bottom. The largest part of California is washed out underneath. There are only upright supports holding the coastline of California. Scientists inform us that the coastline of California is moving northwest at the rate of two inches a year. This places a great strain on the San Andreas Fault which extends from lower California to Palm Springs, near San Bernardino, then over to Palmdale and extending up to the San Francisco Bay area and to Point Arena. All this land west of the fault is moving every year. The stanchions or supports cannot move, as they are part of the ocean bed, making it necessary for them to incline or tip”.

“One day these supports will tip enough that they cannot bear the weight of the land. This will be at the time of a great earthquake. The west side of the San Andeas fault will break off and slide into the sea.” (Mark Hazlewood, Blindsided, Planet X Passes in 2003, Earthchanges, p. 83).

This is pretty much agrees with Brother Branham’s THUS SAITH THE LORD. When I was ministering in Holland back in about 1987, Pastor Harry van der Stel told me he had seen a television interview with the captain of a Russian submarine who said he had taken his vessel many miles inland beneath the city of Los Angeles, and that the whole of the coastline was hollow and supported only on pillars of rock that rise from the ocean floor.

In Newsletter 221, speaking of the great spasms of nature at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, we wrote: “This convulsion of nature, will be induced perhaps by a planetary alignment, a conjunction with the tenth or twelfth planet which passes between Earth and the Sun over about 90-days, inducing Earth’s crust to slip over its molten core as it passes, so that the stars appear to fall to earth or prostrate themselves, and instantly flash freezing all life in the new location of the poles. The most accurate calculation for Planet X and its latest co-ordinates point to its next passage in Springtime, or May, 2003. As this planet glows red, when it eclipses the Sun it will cause the Moon to appear blood red”. We went on to quote the Sixth Seal of Revelation 6:13-17.

It has since been brought to my attention that Planet X, which has been diligently sought by many notable astronomers over the centuries, remains very much a hypothesis. Here is a sample of some negative comment: starchild.gsfc.nasa.gov, http://www.badastronomy.com, zetatalk.com.

However, the details of Newsletter 221 remain generally unchanged, there will be a planetary realignment, seemingly without the elusive Planet X. Even so, the Sixth Seal will open with natural catastrophes that include earthquakes greater than any since man has walked this earth (Revelation 16:18-21) and tidal waves (Luke 21:24). At the close of the Sixth Seal, earth’s crust will break up like Humpty Dumpty after his fall, and fresh lava will resurface the planet. Let’s read what the Prophet has said:

“Anyone knows that the world, positionally, everything’s setting in order for His coming: “Earthquakes in divers places; the moon is spurting out red blood, or red volcanic all over it, covering it.” As Jesus said, watch for that sign in the last days: “sea a roaring, men’s hearts failing for fear, and perplexed of time, distress between the nations” (William Branham, The Presence of God Unrecognized, p. 16:113).

“The hour is come when God will destroy them that destroy the earth. . . The world is. . . trying to bring forth a new world for the millennium where all this sin is purged out . . . The Sixth Seal lets her go! Brother, the earthquakes burst open, and the stars shake; volcanics will come forth, and the earth will renew itself. New lava will break forth from the center of the earth, and she’ll crumble all around and around and around when she spins out in yonder” (William Branham, The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 439:1-440:2).

“The wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. All your scientists, and you people who are depending on some great scholarship or something another telling you how to split an atom, it can’t give you Life. There’s nothing can give you Life but the spoken Word of God. It’s the only way that Life can come is through His spoken Word”.

“That’s all right, to know how to split a atom; I wish they’d never found it out. It had to happen to burst these big holes in the earth to let that lava come forth and rejuvenate this world again to make a new earth, where righteous will walk out upon the dust of the wicked, where sin will be forgotten. Everything has a way of renewing itself. And man who was given to live on this earth, by his own wisdom, taking the Tree of Knowledge instead of the Tree of Life, he’ll destroy the earth God gave him to live on. But those who are still on the Tree of Life will come to a new heavens and a new earth where there is no sickness or death. Light, Light, Lord, send us Light.” (William Branham, There is a Man here that can Turn On the Light, p. 17:95-95).

“Moscow, could direct their missiles, guided by the stars and radar, could land that bomb exactly on Fourth Street in Louisville if they wanted to. That’s right. And we can stand out there in the sea somewhere, on our ships, and direct one right straight on the capital of Moscow if we want to. What would happen, my brother, if that great missile turning would take place, and this country would receive a shake? At the same hour we’d turn loose the same things and shake it to the other side. And we’re living on a little, bitty, tiny, thin crust, anyhow, when the earthquakes have eat around and eat around until it’s like hollowing out an egg. If she’d make one big burst and this eight-thousand-miles-thick of lava would spurt into the air, it would do exactly what God said would take place” (William Branham, The Second Coming of the Lord, p. 9:48).

“I saw the United States as one smouldering, burnt-over place. It will be near the end. . . President Franklin D. Roosevelt took America to England’s tea party. That’s right. Germany never picked on us.” [Neither did the Palestinian Arabs and Hebrews whose land we stole and gave away to those non-Semitic, anti-Semitic Mongolian so-called “Jews”; Indonesia, Korea, Vietnam, Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, Rhodesia, Belgian Congo, South Africa, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, the Sudan, Bosnia, Serbia, and scores of other nations the United States and other “Jewish” surrogates have “picked on” since World War II].

“Women, given the right to vote, elected President-elect Kennedy—by the woman’s vote, the wrong man, which will finally be to full control of the Catholic church in the United States; then the bomb comes that explodes her.” Brother Branham blames it all upon “hybreeding” (William Branham, Hybrid Religion, p. 6:4-6; 21:7; Genesis 3:1-15).

“I believe, one of these glorious days, when this united confederation of church goes together, and the new pope is brought out of the United States and put over there according to prophecy, then they’ll form an image like unto the beast. And I tell you, the true Church of God will be driven together. The real, true believers out of Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Nazarene, Pilgrim Holiness, whatever they’ll be, will go together cemented by the love of God, that’ll make the Body of the Lord Jesus Christ, all the believers. And agnostics and shallow-minded will be cast to one side; they’ll go right on into the confederation of churches” (William Branham, The Acts of the Holy Spirit, p. 12:87). “Not only will the world systems crumble, but the very earth will be shaken and then renovated for the millennial reign of Christ” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 320:3).

From these quotations we understand that the process of earth’s self-refurbishment for the millennium will commence with earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis at the end of the Gentile dispensation and that the redness of the moon will be caused by volcanic dust in the atmosphere. But God always lets man destroy himself, as he did at the time of the Flood. The catalyst to the annihilation of all life and the obliteration of man’s works will once again be nuclear warfare, throwing earth off its axis as it did in the days of Noah. Earth will spin out, but this time it will return to its correct axis in relation to the sun.

Whatever causes the natural sun to “go down at noon” cannot be an eclipse (Amos 8:9). Nor can there be an eclipse when the natural moon is full, as it will be at the time of the earthquake that marks the close of the Gentile dispensation and as it was at the first crucifixion. Isaiah 24 prophesies this period of judgment which will culminate in the destruction of all evil and the physical restoration of all things in a new heavens and new earth.

Space Cadets and the New Year

January 5, 2018

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 1005

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

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it is good see you on the Eve of 2018, at least the twenty-first year of this Newsletter and our twenty-sixth year in cyber space. One subscriber has been with us since Bible Believers’ Church BBS which preceded the WWW.

Android PhoneI trust you have carefully studied Newsletter 1004 which unfolds mysteries that tie Old Testament scriptures together with the New to confirm where we stand in time. Today’s feature “Space Cadets and the New Year” is directed to God’s astronauts in Jesus Christ, pressurised by the Holy Spirit, under pre-eminence to the Word, ready to change in the atoms and travel like a thought. Our flight will take “thousand thousands” into the sixth dimension. No hoax like America’s faked Moon landing: ‘spaceship’ Jesus Christ is the one place of safety. The sinking of Los Angeles will signal seven years of Great Tribulation for earthlings; then nuclear warfare will throw earth out of its orbit toward the sun: her flames will leap thousands of miles into space (Malachi 4:1-3; II Peter 3:7-12).

Our friend and contributing author Israel Shamir’s article “Christmas Gifts—Good News from Around the World” informs us, among other matters of US’ Blackwater mercenaries engaged by Saudi Crown Prince MBS beating Saudi billionaires imprisoned in Riyadh’s Carlton Ritz, hanged by the feet and given electric shocks to break them down . . . one has died.

Also important is a précis of Joe Brandt’s 1937 spiritual dreams wherein he saw Los Angeles sink along with Florida, Japan, many islands and mountains as prophesied, with tidal waves sweeping the world (Jeremiah 24:24; Ezekiel 38:20; Nahum 1:5; Luke 21:25; Revelation 6:14; 16:20). This agrees with Brother Branham’s prophecies from 1935-1965. Volcanoes will erupt on the Pacific Ring and on the Moon (Joel 2:31; Acts 2:20; Revelation 6:12).

If you know these things you are obligated to prove and recognize the most important revelation is the supreme deity of our Lord Jesus Christ. The One Person of God manifest in virgin-born flesh as your KINSMAN Redeemer to pay sin’s price. This New Year, repent and be baptized for the remission of your sins [past unbelief]. Take His Name, LORD JESUS CHRIST, as Husband of your soul and enter the invisible marriage union of the Bride and Christ.

Do not put off to tomorrow what you should do while it is “today.” Run to the water: I will baptize you in His Name and He will bless you with eternal Life this New Year and do immeasurably far beyond your prayers or thoughts according to His power working within you.

This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.

Your brother-in-Christ
Anthony Grigor-Scott


Donald Trump’s National Security Strategy

December 26, 2017 — Breaking with the habits of his predecessors, Donald Trump’s National Security Strategy abandons the management of world affairs and lays out the path to the economic and social recovery of the United States. This project, which is perfectly coherent, represents a brutal change that his cabinet will now have to impose on the whole of his administration.

It . . . attempts above all to reposition the United States as the Republic it was in 1791 (which is to say at the moment of compromise with the Bill of Rights) and no longer as the Empire that it became on 11 September 2001. The role of the White House, its diplomacy and its armed forces is no longer to rule the world, but to protect ‘the interests of the people of the United States’ . . . denouncing the policies of ‘regime change’ and ‘world democratic revolution’ adopted by Ronald Reagan and managed under successive administrations by Trotskyite senior civil servants. He reaffirms the classic realpolitik as declared by Henry Kissinger . . . founded on the idea of ‘sovereign nations’ . . . certain intergovernmental agencies of the ‘Five Eyes’ group, (Australia, Canada, the United States, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom), such as the National Endowment for Democracy, are still directed by Trotskyists . . . Full story: voltairenet.org

Comment: Leon Trotsky and his followers sought worldwide revolution—one totalitarian world government—as opposed to sovereign socialist nations. This accords with the Babylonian Talmud (Pharisaism) and the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church which rule the united States and many nations, and next June or July will likely establish the global government Jesus refused (Matthew 4:8-10; Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:11-13). The US is “the image unto the beast” of Revelation 13: Donald Trump’s rebellion will almost certainly see his presidency terminated before Nisan 14, 2018.


China plans to break Petrodollar Stranglehold

December 21, 2017 — China is making a move to break the United States petrodollar stranglehold . . . oil-futures trading in the yuan . . . fully convertible into gold on the Shanghai and Hong Kong foreign exchange markets . . . when it does get off the ground in 2018 . . . this triple oil-yuan-gold route will bypass the mighty green back.

Next year, six major BRI projects . . . will include the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway, the China-Laos railway and the Addis Ababa-Djibouti railway. The other key projects will be the Hungary-Serbia railway, the Melaka Gateway project in Malaysia and the upgrading of Gwadar port in Pakistan . . . a series of corridors connecting Eastern China with oil-gas rich regions in Central Asia and the Middle East . . . HSBC has estimated that the expansive Belt and Road program will generate no less than an additional, game-changing US$2.5 trillion worth of new trade a year . . . Full story: atimes.com

Comment: As the US dollar continues to lose its status as the world’s premiere reserve currency, the reality of a world war seems inevitable, especially when major countries such as China, Russia and Iran are making strategic moves to bypass the US dollar in favour of other currencies such as China’s ‘Petro-Yuan’ . . . With the power of the US dollar on life support, the US empire of debt continues to use the threat of war and in some cases, wage actual wars around the world . . . With the US. steadily collapsing at a slow pace, Washington would do anything to survive. The US dollar supports the Military-Industrial Complex and its destructive and very expensive adventures around the world . . . globalresearch.ca

The 1944 Bretton Woods international monetary system as it has developed to the present is become . . . the greatest hindrance to world peace and prosperity. Now China, increasingly backed by Russia—the two great Eurasian nations—are taking decisive steps to create a very viable alternative to the tyranny of the US dollar over the world trade and finance. Wall Street and Washington are not amused . . . journal-neo.org


Is It Time for a Ukraine Coup Redux? You Bet It Is

December 24, 2017 — If war is the aim, then it seems the liberal world order wants total annihilation. No matter whose assessment of military strength you consult, NATO and the United States can never prevent Russia from overrunning the Ukraine, the Baltics, or even west central Europe with Putin’s current military capacity. This Global Firepower comparison tells the tale in every category that matters for such a regional conflict. Protracted war being out of the question, Russia’s air defence superiority far outweighs NATO’s attack aircraft numerical superiority (5,000 versus about 2,200 for Russia). Furthermore, the forces NATO could bring to bear against Russia’s superior tank (4 x), self-propelled artillery (2.5 x), towed artillery (3 x), rocket launchers (3 x) and parity in armoured vehicles would literally swamp any feasible NATO response not supported by total air superiority. And with Russia’s mobile air defence capabilities, not to mention new electronic warfare units, the skies over Ukraine would be cleanly swept. Add to this strategic disaster the will to win, and the fact the US has fought nobody in seventy years . . . Full story: journal-neo.org

Comment: In 1958 Brother Branham prophesied “[Russia’s] science is five years ahead of us. And when we’re caught up . . . they’ll be ten years farther the other way” (The Handwriting on the Wall). And in 1954 he prophesied the invasion of mainland USA, after the earthquake sinks Los Angeles (Invasion of the USA).


Who is behind Bitcoin Mania?

Bitcoin logo

December 21, 2017 — Bitcoin mania is being heavily promoted by the great and the good of the PRC (Predatory Ruling Class) . . . Hyped by the Piranha Press and blessed by the Rothschild Central Banks, digital crypto-currencies—Bitcoin foremost among them at this time—are exploding in popularity and “value.” Suckers worldwide are now purchasing Bitcoin with credit cards and even home loans . . . The fact that Wall Street Hedge funds have joined the Globalist media mania bubble of Bitcoin constitutes “prima facie” evidence that there is a sinister agenda behind these digital currencies. Should there be any lingering doubts over such a suspicion, these headlines ought to dispel them:

Coindesk: (December 17, 2017): 2018: The Year Central Banks Begin Buying Cryptocurrency.
CNBC: (December 18, 2017): Central Banks could hold bitcoin and ether for the first time in 2018.
Quartz Index: (September 25, 2017): Central Banks considering launch of official cryptocurrencies.

The fix is in, boys and girls. What is the motive here, you ask? . . . The end-game behind the crypto craze is to usher in a GLOBAL digital currency which, in time, will be very much “centralized” . . .

A prophetic excerpt from a 1988 [Rothschilds’] Economist article (as quoted from a 2014 issue of Bitcoin Magazine):

“THIRTY years from now (i.e. 2018), Americans, Japanese, Europeans, and people in many other rich countries, and some relatively poor ones will probably be paying for their shopping with the same currency. Prices will be quoted not in dollars, yen or D-marks but in, let’s say, the phoenix. The phoenix will be favoured by companies and shoppers because it will be more convenient than today’s national currencies, which by then will seem a quaint cause of much disruption to economic life in the [last or] twentieth century.”

“An even more ambitious solution would be to move to a truly global currency, along the lines of Keynes’s “bancor,” that would circulate alongside countries’ own currencies and would offer a store of value truly disconnected from economic conditions and policies in any country. To achieve this, one would need to set up a global monetary institution that would issue the global currency depending on global economic conditions, and that could act as a global lender of last resort. It would need to have an impeccable (“AAAA”) balance sheet, and governance arrangements that engender widespread credibility and acceptability.”

“As telecommunications technology continues to advance, these transactions will be cheaper and faster still.”

“The phoenix zone would impose tight constraints on national governments. There would be no such thing, for instance, as a national monetary policy. The world phoenix supply would be fixed by a new central bank, descended perhaps from the IMF.”

This means a big loss of economic sovereignty, but the trends that make the phoenix so appealing are taking that sovereignty away in any case. You see, the gift of ‘prophecy’ comes easy when you are the one running the show! There is no doubt about this one, boys and girls. Bitcoin was never a “spontaneous” digital currency of “the people” that just “took off.” It has been, from the start, a tool of the usual suspects and the play is only getting started. The year 2018 promises to be very interesting. Stay tuned . . .

Months before “The Good War” had even ended, the post-World War II monetary system was cooked up at Breton Woods by the US Communist Harry Dexter White and the UK Fabian Socialist and the known sodomite John Maynard Keynes. Keynes advocated a world currency, which he named “Bancor,” but he realized that the idea was still too radical for those times.

Comment: “[America] was founded on freedom of religion because our forefathers had fled Roman persecution of the modern Jezebel system (Revelation 2:20) . . . and stood many great persecutions and martyrdom under that false system of Jezebel. And according to . . . Revelation the 12th chapter, God had promised them an oasis and a place, for the woman [the church] was carried into the wilderness where she was fed for a time, times, and a dividing of time . . .” (Jezebel Religion, p. 7:53; Revelation 12:6).

“[America’s] destiny is in the thirteenth chapter. In this image that is mentioned in this chapter will be found all the wickedness of the [papal Roman] beast that was before it. As the beast rose at the Nicene Council, so the image will come out of the World Council of Churches with all ungodly and Satanic power to vent the anger of the Devil upon the true vine of God. It will be a repeat performance of all diabolical cunning and cruelty” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 131:3).

“When God sends forth a Message and tells the people, and they don’t receive it, then He withdraws His servant and sends His plagues: famine, death, spiritually speaking, physically also. You watch for a depression, brother. You think you’ve seen something; you just wait after while. You haven’t seen nothing . . . (Jezebel Religion, p. 22:100).

This world is hostage to the international banksters of the City of London. There is no safety in man or mammon (Luke 16:13). Christ will take His Bride Home, leaving the world to wrath: you must get into Christ NOW by recognizing and understanding YOUR day and ITS Message that your life becomes “an epistle known and read of all men”.


BRICS Countries plan to set up their Own Internet

December 14, 2017 — The BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) are going to set up their own system for Internet governance so as to bypass US control.

What we know as the Internet today, has been governed by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), a para-administrative association of the US Trade Department.

The new system of Internet governance is a proposal from Russia’s National Security Council . . . If this new system catches on and expands, the United States will lose control over global telecommunications . . . the Internet being split in two: websites being accessible to everyone, but only if you register with each of the two systems . . .

Christmas Gifts–Good News from Around the World

By Israel Shamir © 2017 all rights reserved

Washington DC, Israeli-occupied territory

December 25, 2017 — It is a beautiful and serene time of hope, when the darkest time of the year is already behind us. Though the light is still not perceptible, we know and feel that the change is coming.

The recent vote in the UN has been such a glimpse of light, a harbinger of Sun. The people of the world en masse rejected the American administration’s recognition of Jerusalem as a part of the Jewish state—what could be better? They did it despite open threats voiced by the crazy envoy Nikki Haley who threatened the world community mob-style, promising to write down all those who voted against the US decision. (“The first name that she should write down is Bolivia,” defiantly said the Bolivian UN ambassador.)

Trump also suggested the US could cut off aid for countries that opposed it in the UN vote. These threats had been counterproductive: only nine states, the usual suspects including the ex-US dependencies in the Pacific voted for the Zionists. Even Canada, ever supportive of Israel and as heavily Zionised as anybody, didn’t vote for the US and Israel, because the Trump threats made it nearly impossible for an independent state to do so. If Zionists thought they already rule the world, the vote came and proved their triumphant reports were somewhat premature. “We are not Zionist slaves,” the nations of the world said.

I love these decisions of Trump: they undermine the Imperial hold on the world more than anything Putin could ever do. Did he plan it? Did the rain plan to facilitate wheat growth? What is important is that Trump is doing it well. Cutting the US contribution to the UN budget is also good, as it ushers us to the blessed times when the US won’t order nations around. Is there a flip side? Not really.

The US decision on Jerusalem has been deemed null and void. The Palestinians are justifiably angry, but they are also encouraged by world support. Before the Trump recognition, they were smothered by silence, now their struggle is back in the limelight. The Turks assumed their traditional place in the lead of the Muslim Ummah (Islamic equivalent of “Christendom”). Iran has been reconciled with its Sunni neighbours. In short, rarely has a decision by the US President made such a positive shift as Trump’s Jerusalem decision.

Even Israeli Defence Minister Mr. Lieberman . . . refrained from bombing Gaza despite a few stray rockets, and he watched placidly as Assad’s troops cleared the pockets of jihadis on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights armistice line . . . in normal times, he would . . . send his air force to strafe them.

Suppression of Palestinian protests has been less fierce than usual, too. A legless invalid protester in his wheelchair was killed by a well-aimed shot of a Jewish sniper, a teenage girl who slapped an Israeli officer has been taken to jail, a lot of tear gas has been fired in Bethlehem; but by Israeli standards, the repression has been restrained . . .

The Beast of Riyadh has been forced to vote against his best friends America and Israel. He tried again to convince . . . Mahmoud Abbas, the PNA President, to accept “the American Peace Plan,” and in vain. Even before the Trump recognition, Abbas declined the offer; now it would be suicidal. But don’t weep for MBS. He keeps milking his relatives and notables, locked up in the Ritz Carlton. One of them, Royal Guard Major General Ali Alqahtani died under torture. His family had difficulty recognising his body—too many electric shocks. The price tag for the freedom of al-Waleed bin Talal, the richest detainee, has been placed at $6 billion dollars, some 30% of his net worth, but probably 70% of his unencumbered assets. The Dog Still Does Not Bark, that is the world media keeps mum about this shakedown, and this is good news for MBS . . .

“The mood among Saudis I spoke with was: “Just turn them all upside down, shake the money out of their pockets and don’t stop shaking them until it’s all out!” Moreover, I am sure the Americans would applaud if their billionaires were to get the MBS treatment. The Russians were mighty pleased when Putin locked up the oligarch Khodorkovsky, and complained that he was the only one to be jailed. They would love to see the whole lot of oligarchs who plundered Russia through manifestly fraudulent, staged auctions under [Jewish] American advisers in Yeltsin’s days, to be shaken “until it’s all out”.

Comment: Follow the links in Brother Israel’s article as they affirm our consistent teaching in accord with Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Zechariah, Jesus Christ and Brother Branham that the strategy of Jewry is to reconquer and re-communize Russia, destroy the Papal Roman beast and her US image and usurp Lucifer’s one world government promised by the Babylonian Talmud and refused by Jesus Christ (Matthew 4:8-9).


In 1937 Joe Brandt saw an Earthquake sink Los Angeles, much of California and Japan

I woke up in the hospital room with a terrific headache—as if the whole world was revolving inside my brain. I remember, vaguely, the fall from my horse—Blackie. As I lay there, pictures began to form in my mind—pictures that stood still. I seemed to be in another world. Whether it was the future, or it was some ancient land, I could not say. Then slowly, like the silver screen of the “talkies,” but with colour and smell and sound, I seemed to find myself in Los Angeles—but I swear it was much bigger, and buses and odd-shaped cars crowded the city streets.

I thought about Hollywood Boulevard, and I found myself there. . . I noticed there was a quietness about the air, a kind of stillness. Something else was missing. . . There were no birds. . . Had they gone away? Again, I could hear the stillness. Then I knew something was going to happen.

I wondered what year it was. It certainly was not 1937. I saw a newspaper on the corner with a picture of the President. It surely wasn’t Mr. Roosevelt. He was bigger, heavier, big ears. . .

The next day: Gosh, my headache is worse. It is a wonder I didn’t get killed on that horse. I’ve had another crazy dream, back in Hollywood. . . I looked up at the clock down by that big theatre. It was ten minutes to four. Something big was going to happen.

. . . early spring. . . I’ve been to the end of the world—there isn’t anything left. Not even Fresno, even though I’m lying here right this minute. If only my eyes would get a little clearer so I can write all this down. There was a funny smell. I don’t know where it came from. I didn’t like it. A smell like sulphur, sulphuric acid, a smell like death. For a minute I thought I was back in chem. [Chemistry class].

. . . I thought I would stand there looking at that clock forever waiting for something to come. . . Then, when it came, how it came. Like nothing in God’s world. Like nothing. . . You felt it long before you saw it, as if the sidewalks wouldn’t hold you anymore. I looked out at the cars. . . The shaking had started again, but this time different. It was a nice shaking, like a cradle being rocked for a minute, and then I saw the middle of the Boulevard seem to be breaking in two. The concrete looked as if it were being pushed straight up by some giant shovel. It was breaking in two. . . the waters kept oozing—oozing. The cries. God, it was awful. I woke up. I never want to have that dream again.

It came again. Like the first time which was a preview and all I could remember was that it was the end of the world. I was right back there—all that crying. Right in the middle of it. My eardrums felt as if they were going to burst. Noise everywhere. People falling down, some of them hurt badly. Pieces of buildings, chips, flying in the air. One hit me hard on the side of the face, but I didn’t seem to feel it. I wanted to wake up, to get away from this place. It had been fun in the beginning, the first dream, when I kind of knew I was going to dream the end of the world or something. This was terrible. There were older people in cars. Most of the kids were on the street. But those old guys . . . Nobody could help anybody. It was then I felt myself lifted up. . . I was over the city. It was tilting toward the ocean—like a picnic table.

The buildings were holding . . . people saw they were holding and they tried to cling to them or get inside. . . A building dies just like a person. It gives way, some of the bigger ones did just that. . .

I couldn’t look anymore at the people. I kept wanting to get higher. Then I seemed to be out of it all, but I could see. I seemed to be up on Big Bear near San Bernardino, but the funny thing was that I could see everywhere. I knew what was happening. The earth seemed to start to tremble again. I could feel it even though I was high up. This time it lasted maybe twelve seconds, and it was gentle. You couldn’t believe anything so gentle could cause so much damage. But then I saw the streets of Los Angeles—and everything between the San Bernardino mountains and Los Angeles. It was still tilting towards the ocean, houses, everything that was left. I could see the big lanes—dozens of big lanes still loaded with cars sliding the same way. Now the ocean was coming in, moving like a huge snake across the land. I wondered how long it was, and I could see the clock, even though I wasn’t there on the Boulevard. It was 4:29. It had been half an hour. I was glad I couldn’t hear the crying anymore. But I could see everything. I could see everything.

Then, like looking at a huge map of the world, I could see what was happening on the land and with the people. San Francisco was feeling it, but she was not in any way like Hollywood or Los Angeles. . . I shut my eyes for a long time—I guess ten minutes—and when I opened them I saw Grand Canyon.

When I looked at Grand Canyon, that great big gap was closing in, and Boulder Dam was being pushed, from underneath. And then, Nevada, and on up to Reno. Way down south, way down. Baja, California. Mexico too. It looked like some volcano down there was erupting, along with everything else. I saw the map of South America, especially Colombia. Another volcano—eruption—shaking violently. I seemed to be seeing a movie of three months before—before the Hollywood earthquake. Venezuela seemed to be having some kind of volcanic activity. Away off in the distance, I could see Japan, on a fault, too. . . it started to go into the sea. I couldn’t hear screaming. . . In a minute or two it seemed over. Everybody was gone. There was nobody left.

[Brother Branham said: “Japan . . . she’s ready to rock to pieces right now. And here’s no way you can stop it, because they have neglected to do exactly what God told them to do. Instead of preach of Gospel, they have built buildings, and had fine scholarships, and educations” (Uncertain Sound, #61-0415E)].

I didn’t know time now. I couldn’t see a clock. I tried to see the island of Hawaii. I could see huge tidal waves beating against it. The people on the streets were getting wet, and they were scared. But I didn’t see anybody go into the sea.

I seemed way around the globe. More flooding. Is the world going to be drenched? Constantinople. Black Sea rising. Suez Canal, for some reason seemed to be drying up. Sicily—she doesn’t hold. I could see a map. Mt. Etna. Mt. Etna is shaking. A lot of area seemed to go, but it seemed to be earlier or later. . . England—huge floods—but no tidal waves. Water, water everywhere, but no one was going into the sea. . . New York was coming into view—she was still there, nothing had happened, yet water level was way up. Here, things were different. People were running in the streets yelling—”end of the world” . . . I heard—or somehow I knew—that somewhere in the Atlantic land had come up. A lot of land. . . The waves were rushing up now. Waves. Such waves. Nightmare waves.

. . . Grand Canyon was pushing together, and Boulder Dam was breaking apart. It was still daylight. All these radio stations went off at the same time Boulder Dam had broken. . .

Joe Brandt’s Dreams agree with the Prophecies of William Branham

A prophecy that I made about 1935 or something like that, said: “The time would come (It’s written in a book somewhere) that the sea would weep its way into the desert.” Look what’ll take place. If that thousands of square miles falls down into the lava of the earth and slides in, there’ll be millions die at one time. And that’ll cause such a tidal wave. . . Remember, plumb up into the Salton Sea is a hundred or two hundred feet lower than the sea level. That water will probably come almost to Tucson with that tidal wave coming across there. And the sea shall weep its way into the desert (William Branham, Trying to do God a Service without being in the Will of God, p. 6:25).

[The Spirit of the Lord came upon the Prophet as he was preaching in Los Angeles]: “We don’t know what time. And you don’t know what time that this city one day is going to be laying out here in the bottom of this ocean.”

“O, Capernaum,” said Jesus, “Thou who exalted into heaven will be brought down into hell, for if the mighty works had been done in Sodom and Gomorrah, it’d have been standing till this day.” And Sodom and Gomorrah lays at the bottom of the Dead Sea, and Capernaum’s in the bottom of the sea. Thou city, who claims to be the city of the Angels, who’s exalted yourself into heaven and sent all the dirty filthy things of fashions and things, till even the foreign countries come here to pick up our filth and send it away, with your fine churches and steeples, and so forth the way you do; remember, one day you’ll be laying in the bottom of this sea. You’re great honeycomb under you right now. The wrath of God is belching right beneath you. How much longer He’ll hold this sandbar hanging over that, when that ocean out yonder a mile deep will slide in there plumb back to the Salton Sea. It’ll be worse than the last day of Pompeii. Repent, Los Angeles. Repent the rest of you and turn to God. The hour of His wrath is upon the earth. Flee while there’s time to flee and come into Christ.” Let us pray” (Choosing a Bride, p. 35:3-5).

[And again]: “The last meeting I had in California, while speaking, and didn’t know nothing happened till I got on the street, It told California, said, “Capernaum, Capernaum, the city that’s called by the name of the angels (that’s Los Angeles), you’ve exalted yourself into heaven, but you’ll be brought down into hell. For if the mighty works had been done in Sodom that’s been done in you, it would’ve been standing till this day.”

“Now, the last few days, the great roaring and popping. Then, here come out a paper of science, said, “It’s all honeycombed; it’s got to go under.” They just know it.”

“And you watch, the water will come plumb back into the Salton Sea. Los Angeles is doomed for judgment. I tell you before it happened, that you might know when it does happen. I never spoke that by myself. And I’ve never had Him to tell me one thing but what happened. And you can bear record of that. That’s right. When? I don’t know.”

“I went out, and they told me what I said. And I listened, went back and searched the Scripture. You know, Jesus said, almost in them same words about Capernaum; and Sodom and Gomorrah was in the bottom of the Dead Sea, I suppose was then. And later, about a hundred years later, Capernaum slid into the sea, and it’s in the sea. The same God that put Sodom in the sea for its sins, the same God that put Capernaum in the sea for its sins, the same God will put Los Angeles in the sea for its sins, that city of corruption” (Works is Faith Expressed, p. 8:61-64).

Matthew’s gospel was addressed primarily to Israelites. In Matthew 24:1-3 the disciples asked Jesus three questions concerning time:

 

  • When will Jerusalem’s temple be . . . thrown down”? The answer is in verse 15 which prophesied the legions of Titus in AD70 (Ezekiel 9).
  • “What will be the sign of your [unseen second or (Gk.) ‘parousia’] Coming [to Israel]?” The answer is in verse 30 under the manifestation of the Sixth Seal and Seventh Trumpet (verses 29-31), an earthquake of unprecedented magnitude “since men were upon the earth” will mark the end of the Christian dispensation (see Isaiah 64:1-2; Ezekiel 43:2; Joel 2:1-11; Micah 1:3-4; Zechariah 4:7; 14:4-5, 7-8; Revelation 6:12; 8:5; 11:19; 16:18; 18:21-24). This will be the crucifixion of the Son of God [Holy Spirit (Hebrews 6:4-6)], the antitype of the crucifixion of the Son of man [Man] on Calvary, see Matthew 27:52-54. Son of man, Son of God and Son of David, are three ‘offices’ of one God as Prophet, Priest, and King. Likewise, Father, Son and Holy Ghost are three dispensation claims of the one God, NOT three people, which would make three gods unless language has lost its meaning.

    Brother Branham called this earthquake the sign of time“.

    Pillar of Cloud, Feb. 28, 1963In 1964 he was hunting on Sunset Mountain in the Coronado Forest, Arizona, whence He had been caught up into the Pillar of Cloud the previous year and told to return to his Church at Jeffersonville and preach the Seven Seals which would be revealed to him. One day the Lord told His Prophet, tell Brother Wood to throw up a rock (as in Jeremiah 51:63-64 and Revelation 18:21). When it came down he said, “Within a day and a night you’re going to see the glory of God.” And the next day a whirlwind came out of the skies. When it went up “It spoke three words in three great blasts.” The men only heard the blasting. I understood what it said, and said, “Judgment striking West Coast!” Two days after that Alaska almost sunk. The magnitude 9.2 earthquake that struck Alaska on March 27, 1964 was the second-largest earthquake recorded in modern times (after a 9.5 earthquake in Chile in 1960), and the largest in the written history of North America. It released 100 times as much energy as the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and was followed by tsunamis. During the earthquake, more than 100,000 square miles of Alaska broke, twisted, tilted, dropped and rose. “Since that earthquake, there is a two- or three-inch crack that come in the earth, starting in Alaska, goes around through the Aleutian Islands, comes out about a hundred and fifty or two hundred miles in the sea, comes back up at San Diego; takes in California, or Los Angeles, and comes out again just below the northern part of California there, a little place called San Jose . . .”

    “And everything has been said, oh, even to the destruction of California, coming up now, and all these other things. And how I told them how many days it would be, how it would be where this big earthquake happened in Alaska, and that would be the beginning of the sign of time, and what would take place. And just word by word, what It said, it’s never failed one time. You’ve never seen It fail. And It can’t fail, because It’s God’s Words. “And Heaven and earth will pass away, but It can’t fail.” That’s right (Ashamed, p. 7:45-97).

    Two or three is a witness, the ‘third pull’ of the Alaska earthquake was an assurance Los Angeles will sink, and the one year matches the year the little Armour girl waited for her Bridegroom as we have waited for 2018, and I believe our year is about up.

  • “What will be the sign of the end of the world [or completion and consummation of the age and the commencement of the millennium].” The answer is a parable commencing in verse 32 which speaks of Daniel’s Seventieth Week of seven years that will follow the resurrection of the Church Age saints and the translation of Christ’s end-time Bride before the consummation of life on earth and its cleansing by fire for the honeymoon of the Bride and Christ who will step out on the nuclear ashes of the wicked for a thousand years of peace (Malachi 4:1-3).

Comment: Tidal waves from the sinking of Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth’s crust should reach the east coast of Australia in about two hours. Buildings and infrastructure on reclaimed land in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Japan and elsewhere are certain to subside owing to liquefaction of reclaimed land during earthquakes.


 

Space Cadets and the New Year

All nature testifies there is a resurrection of the dead. But it can only rise if it serves God’s purpose. If a flower lives but is not fertilized, it will not rise again. If you plant corn, and it is not fertilized it will not rise again. Everything that serves God’s purpose has a resurrection. Whatever does not serve His purpose has no resurrection. You cannot keep anything in the ground that serves God’s purpose. These are testimonies to encourage us. Each day, wherever you look, you see God.

There is a natural body of people and a spiritual Body of people.

There is a natural bride. I’ve had the privilege of marrying fine young couples, and as I look at them, I think of their hearts beating as one, Christ and His Bride. There is a natural bride testifying that there is a spiritual Bride, and there is a spiritual Bride, because there is a natural bride.

All of these natural happenings forerun spiritual happenings, one accompanies and improves the other. When the spiritual Life comes upon a natural life it improves the natural life. Even a leaf, when it falls back into the ground returns in the resurrection to testify in another year in a better condition than when it went down. Everything testifies of these things.

For instance all of man’s natural achievements have forerun the spiritual achievements that God has accomplished through His Church. All the natural things are a type of spiritual things. Take transportation: first it was by horse, one horsepower; the early car was perhaps twenty horsepower, then came the aeroplane with hundreds of horsepower. Scientific achievements become greater and greater forerunning the spiritual promises of God’s Word.

The natural man looks backward for his achievement to what God has done in a former creation, studying geology, rocks, fossils and minerals, taking God’s existing creation and perverting it from its original estate to improve his home and economy. Whereas in His spiritual achievement God is going forward, and the spiritual man is looking into the Word, believing the promises for things that are to be and anticipating the manifestation of spiritual revelations. Just as the scientist in his laboratory is working with existing creation to help man; the spiritual man looks forward to something God has promised, something He has not yet created. The natural man looks backward. The spiritual man looks forward.

The natural church member looks back to what was in a day gone by. We are looking forward to the greater things God has promised. Science goes back, we go forward in the Word of the Lord to find what God has achieved. One foreruns or types the other: as science has been able to achieve more horsepower, God has achieved in like manner.

Way back in the days of horsepower God took Luther out of a carnal monolith under His pre-eminence to let man see that “the just shall live by faith,” not works, and Luther preached it. That was typed by the horse-and-buggy days and He achieved justification whereby the church received Life by believing on Jesus Christ.

Then He took John Wesley under His control to take out all the isms and He was able to bring the church into sanctification. Sanctification raised the church to its feet with enough strength to walk away and separate from the things of the world. Sanctify means “separate for the glory of God.” Now at the end of Wesley’s age was the automobile.

William BranhamThe Pillar of Fire and the Pentecostal Revival fell in Azusa Street, California, forerunning the aeroplane, and man took to the air, into heavenly places, into the supernatural, speaking unknown tongues, with unknown gifts, and did things that were foreign to the world church system, because he had taken off from the ground into the air. God showed by aeroplanes that His church was arising; He shows by the natural things what is happening in the spiritual. They always follow. Just as the wise men followed the Star for two years to find Christ, He has told us of the signs that would be in the sky just before His second or (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming in 1963. All of man’s achievements are only types and shadows of what God is doing. He always does it that way. We see that now. It’s only a pointing post. We see how science has achieved, and how God has achieved by His church.

Now we have moved beyond the aeroplane age into the age of spiritual astronauts. It’s the same Spirit, only more power, we can go higher, see more, believe more, be more like Christ. Not the horse and buggy, not the automobile, not even the aeroplane, but, the astronaut. It’s called the Eagle Age, in the Bible.

[Matthew 24:28: “For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together.” The carcass is what the eagles feed on. God calls His prophets eagles and in Malachi 4:5, 6b He promised us a prophet. God calls Himself an eagle, we believers are “eaglets” and the carcass we feed on is the Word. Wherever the Word is, the true nature of the bird will show itself. An eagle must have fresh meat, what Peter called, “the present Truth.” He’s not a vulture; he’s an eagle. He won’t feed on denominational leftovers like a kangaroo run over in Luther’s day. It’s already contaminated. What was left over must be burned; don’t leave it for the next generation. When you take communion, don’t leave any left over till morning; burn it (Exodus 12:10)]!

As a type of Christ (the last Adam), who is only marrying a virgin to His Word, the Christian minister (unlike the first Adam) must marry a virgin (Matthew 25:1-13; II Corinthians 11:2); and one who is in the faith. And the Church like the natural woman has a sacred virtue she must preserve for her Husband and motherhood. In the last days God is marrying a W_O_R_D Bride with a ministry that’s THUS SAITH THE LORD as a man and his wife become one, when Jehovah brings His people “into the unity of the faith,” He lives in His people. They are one. John 14:12, “He that believes on Me, the works that I do shall he do also.” He has already fulfilled what Jesus said would take place, “As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be in the (Gk.) ‘parousia’ Coming of the Son of man” (Luke 17:30; Hebrews 4:12; Genesis 18).

God has achieved what He promised to achieve in the last days according to Malachi 4. The only thing wanting is for the last elect to recognize her day and its Message and not look back to aeroplanes and cars, but for greater power to lift him or her higher into the Presence of God, where all things are possible. It’s been happening since Christ opened and revealed the Seven Seals in 1963. It’s called the ‘rapture.’ God’s space cadet goes on above the creed, beyond the denominations, above those who say, “It isn’t so!” He has a Guide, the Holy Spirit. The Word tells him it is so, and he moves on!

Scientists figured out on paper what the natural astronaut could do. Likewise any man can sit down and read the Word of God and see what is promised. “Search the scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life: and they are they which testify of Me.” The earthbound bunch still living back in denominational days which had only PART-Word and a Mediator for their ignorance of the fullness because the Book was sealed don’t know what He is. Today we are at the end of the countdown.

The natural astronaut even counts backwards, “Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, zero!” Ten is a bad number to start with. Israel had ten tribes and they were all carnal. Jacob had to take Joseph’s two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, the prophet’s children by the Gentile wife, and bless them. And, when he did, his hands crossed. And he said, “Father, not so, you’ve put your hands on Ephraim, it should be on Manasseh.” And Jacob said, “God crossed my hands.” Taking it from the older son, the Law, and placing it over on Christ the Word, and grace. And through the Cross came the change of the birthright, to the younger son. Amen. Oh, my! How wonderful!

Israel's King and Queen: Christ & His BrideMan always counts backwards. “Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, zero.” God starts with His number, seven. That’s God’s number. Watch Him, He counts ahead, starting with one. He starts with His first Church Age. There were seven Church Ages. He made the world in seven days; the seventh day He rested. That’s the last number in His creation. He counts straight ahead, not backwards. He goes forward. He counted from the birth of the Church on the Day of Pentecost. The first Church Age was Ephesus; second, Smyrna; third, Pergamos; fourth, Thyatira; fifth, Sardis; sixth, Philadelphia; seventh, Laodicea.” It’s later than you think. It’s later than you think. The counting is over. Laodicea ended in 1963 when Christ returned “as a thief in the night.” The next thing is “zero,” let’s go. Everything is ready. The counting is over: Redemption is Over and the threefold PROCESS of the rapture has been ongoing for the past fifty-four years.

One of these mornings God’s achievement in space cadets who climbed into Jesus Christ by the Holy Ghost and filled with His power will take off into the sky, and the universe will be screaming with wailing and gnashing of teeth when they see they’ve missed it. When the great Eagle, powered by the Holy Ghost and Fire begins to spread Her wings, the astronauts will take off to meet the Bridegroom in the astronaut power of God Almighty Who sent Jesus Christ to earth, in the form of the Holy Ghost and has brought the Church through these achievements!

Right now She is receiving resurrection Power to fly beyond the things of the world (Ephesians 1:17-20), seeing Him rejected and outside the church, making Himself “the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Revelation 18:4; Hebrews 13:8). Yes, sir. The countdown is over! Every Church Age has passed. Get in, my brother, sister. Get pressurized. The pressure won’t hurt you when you are inside, get pressurized. Get in Christ, and you won’t care what the world says. They can’t never hurt you, anyhow. You’re safe. You’re tucked in.

The resurrection of those who are asleep will commence universally, Church Age by Church Age; their theophanies will put glorified flesh while we who are alive and remain will become a hunted and persecuted little group manifesting we are the Sons of God by exercising the ‘third pull’ for our necessities and to elevate faith for translation grace. When one of the resurrected saints appears to us, our recognition of him or her will supercharge our faith and we will be changed in the atoms to a perfect young man or woman of about twenty-two or twenty three years—eternally. Thereafter we will be travelling like a thought, seeing those who are already resurrected. Oh, what an hour. Then we’ll be gathered together with them to meet the Lord in the air. nl1005.htm
