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

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are pleased to join with fellow Space Cadets around God’s unchanging Word.

We present a particularly pertinent and positive feature article this week by contributing author Brother Chibueze Uzoho who pastors our sister Church in Owerri, Nigeria. This is the first part in a series entitled “Authority by Separation.” Just as a man wants a 100% wife, Jesus Christ is only marrying 100% Christians. Yet some have one foot in God’s unchanging Word and eternal Life, and one foot in the world and Death, proving “the love of God is not in them” (I John 2:15).

Brother Branham said, “angelic spirits stick together,” and that “God’s Word calls for a total separation from unbelief.” Our authority in God’s unchanging Word requires us to be 100% Christians, separated from the world and fully consecrated to God’s revealed Word for this day. The 50% and 85% Christian is no Christian at all and has no cause to expect the ‘third pull’ will change them in the atoms and have them “travelling like a thought”.

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.

President Trump’s Inaugural Address declares War on the Ruling Elite as the Media and Protesters declare War on Him

January 23, 2017 — Obviously the inclusionary message within Trump’s speech was totally ignored by these same anti-Trump protesters and the mass media. It’s amazing how the “progressive-minded, so inclusive” left, always preaching unity while professing to be staunch anti-globalists, anti-TPP, peace-loving anti-interventionists, can turn dangerously violent, starting riots, and making threats to blow up the White House . . .

CIA crestThe last US president who exercised any real conscience and resolve to shake up the power establishment by acting in the best interests of the American people never made it past his first term in office. And the same criminal operation that took down JFK—key players within the CIA, the CFR and Kennedy administration including his own VP LBJ, those same shadow government rogue elements still remain alive and fully in power today . . . scheming and plotting the demise of President Donald J. Trump . . . Not so veiled threats . . . brashly hyped repeatedly by all six oligarch owned and controlled mega media giants as well as Washington’s elite. Clearly many both in and out of the seats of power do want Trump dead.

treasonLast February a NY Times columnist “joked” about ultimately halting Trump’s presidential campaign by assassination. Several weeks later conservative talk show host Glenn Beck threatened on the air to repeatedly “stab Trump” . . . CNN has notoriously carried the assassination torch right up to inauguration day . . . subliminally planting the seed to incite other lame brains into MK Ultra violent reaction . . . with so many mentally unstable individuals out there, and mind control techniques utilizing black ops electromagnetic weaponry . . . still smirking, laughing and joking with his fellow cabalist war criminal cronies the Clintons and Obama at the inauguration, just prior to the one man who successfully thwarted the Bush-Clinton-Obama dynasty after near four decades, began outing them as traitors. Suddenly the smirk disappeared . . . Trump’s speech was his first shot across the bow . . . directly blaming those in Washington for selling America out to foreign interests, selling off American workers to offshore foreign factories and globalist “free” trade deals . . .

In his inauguration speech Trump laid out a plan to stop the bleeding and reverse the damage, reiterating all his campaign priorities as a nationalist, clearly opposing globalism as his enemy . . . finishing the job that JFK started by abolishing the CIA, Trump most definitely has his work cut out for him. Once he completes that task, he must move on to destroying destructive, enslaving monsters like the Federal Reserve, Homeland Security and the DEA . . . Trump must also normalize relations with Russia (as well with China and Iran), and in partnership . . . eradicate the cabal’s proxy ally, the terrorists, “off the face of the earth.” Trump needs to revoke all the unconstitutional Obama executive orders as well as dismantle and repeal a number of Obama-passed laws, including reinstating the Smith-Mundt Act to once again hold all the fake MSM accountable for propagating unlawful lies and false propaganda . . .

Shortly after President Kennedy warned of the shadow government and made it known he was committed to a course of peace instead of war . . . eliminating the CIA (prior to it eliminating him) and signing Executive Order 11110 that threatened to cut the authority of the Federal Reserve banksters . . . President Kennedy was suddenly shot dead. On a parallel course, Trump . . . will need to move gradually, steadily and stealthily, exercising extreme prudence and caution while navigating the formidable economic and geopolitical minefield that his powerful enemies have laid before him.

The Federal Reserve will soon be raising interest rates that will tighten the wallets of already strapped Americans, 76% of whom are living one paycheck away from homelessness . . . Last week’s Davos meeting agenda no doubt placed the final touches on the globalist timetable to implode the house of cards economy this year . . . as international reserve currency slips into its death throes . . . currency demonetization occurring in Venezuela and India will be arriving soon . . . absolute NWO surveillance and control can best be attained only when living in a cashless society . . . President Trump will be blamed . . . 2017’s shaping up to be . . . a bumpy ride . . . Full story:

No Time for Resting

January 24, 2017 — In the global Climate Wars, Trump and Brexit have given us a victory of Waterloo dimensions. But this will be only a temporary setback for the Green Globalists unless they are now ruthlessly disarmed and de-funded. If we rest and relax, we will soon be ground under their green sandals again. We must immediately deny them funds, tax shelters, manpower and legal support.

Not a cent more for climate conferences—send just one representative whose only power is to “vote no to everything.” Rescind or ignore past climate “agreements,” de-fund all UN/IPCC activities, remove all green energy subsidies and mandates and halve government funding of the ABC, BBC and all other GreenBC’s. Subtract all “climate aid” from foreign aid budgets, divert all climate research funding to weather-proofing infrastructure, and replace green propaganda with hard science in education agendas.

Starved of public funding and propaganda, and with constant fire at their flanks with bullets of truth, the “invincible” green army will soon falter and run. Chase them all the way back to Paris. Give them no rest until their infamous Grab for Global Power called the Paris Climate Treaty is rejected, never to rise again. Full story:

Operation Barbarossa II: the Yanks in their Armoured Parade

January 18, 2017 — The recent illegal seizure of investigatory material by Dutch police from Dutch journalists returning from Donetsk once again adds to the evidence that the shoot down of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 with 298 people on board in July 2014 was an action of the Kiev regime with US knowledge. I recently stated in an essay on that subject that it was a Kiev military jet that shot down the airliner, and referred to a Sukhoi 25 being used but I since been shown evidence that it was in fact a Kiev Mig-29 that was used. In any event, the NATO powers have colluded in covering up this fact in order to keep up their propaganda the Russia was behind it.

The situation is grave and the doomsday clock must be knocking on the door of midnight. Many of us have called for the anti-war and peace movements to mobilise but they are nowhere to be seen . . . Full story:

‘Stop Operation Soros’ Movement begins in Macedonia

January 19, 2017 — A new initiative, Stop Operation Soros (SOS), dedicated to countering the influence of American billionaire activist George Soros, has been launched in Macedonia . . .

“The Open Society Foundation, operating under the Soros umbrella, used its funding and personnel to support violent processes in Macedonia. It has monopolized the civil society sector, pushing outside any organization which disagrees with the Soros ideology” . . . cooperating with foreign embassies and organizations such as USAID . . .

The Open Society Foundation (OSF) was set up by Hungarian-born Soros between the mid-1980s to early 1990s with the stated aim of helping former Eastern bloc countries transition from communism. However . . . the OSF has also been involved in political activities and Soros publically supported the violent overthrow of the legitimately-elected government in Ukraine during the ‘Euromaidan’ revolution. This has earned him the ire of Russian authorities, which in 2015 banned Soros and his foundations as a threat to national security.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said that 2017 would bring about “the extrusion of George Soros and the forces symbolized by him.” Orban has accused Soros of undermining European borders and values by helping facilitate the flow of refugees and asylum seekers from the Middle East and elsewhere . . . Julian Assange also blasted the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project, funded by Soros, for focusing “exclusively on negative stories about Russia and former Soviet states.” Full story:

US may soon face an Apocalyptic Seismic Event

November 4, 2016 — The University of Washington has already presented seismological charts showing a gigantic geological rift that stretches across the central states of the US from north to south, and marks the region of a possible split of the North America continent in two . . . this anomaly was discovered in the 1960’s, when scientists found a strange underground rupture along Lake Superior that would run south. The discovery surprised American scientists back then since there were no mountains in that area. Following studies showed that this anomaly was stretching across the whole continent, resembling in its form and shape the giant cracks in the east of Africa . . . Full story:

Executive Order: No US Funds to support Abortion


January 23, 2017 — Donald Trump signed an executive order reinstating the so-called Mexico City Policy, which bars international NGO’s that perform or promote abortions from receiving US government funding . . . Democratic administrations have traditionally rescinded the policy, while Republican administrations have reinstated it . . . conservatives in Congress are applauding Trump for signing the executive action.

Authority by Separation – Part I

By Chibueze Uzoho © 2017 all rights reserved

“Therefore come out from among them and be separate says the Lord; touch not the unclean thing and I will receive you”  (II Corinthians 6:17). God’s purpose in separating Christians is to make us a kingdom of priests and kings unto Him. Whereas Aaron and his sons were a type of Christ and His sons, the priests type the born-again elect believers. During the reign of David the priesthood was divided into twenty four courses whose heads signify today’s five-fold ministry (Exodus 19:5-6; Leviticus 11:45; I Peter 2:9; Revelation 1:6; I Chronicles 24:1-4; 28:11-13).

A priest is one chosen by God, set apart by His Word and consecrated to serve Him and minister to others. The office of a priest required a holy walk and his consecration to God was signified by a garment prescribed and defined by God. Without these garments the priest was not qualified to perform his duties. The priestly garment is a type of the Baptism of Holy Ghost with which God robes us in New Testament grace. Anyone who lacks it cannot be a Royal Priest (Romans 8:9; Revelation 19:8).

Priests were to be led by the Word of God and walk in the strict line or righteousness, deviating neither to the left nor to the right. They were to abstain from wine and all alcoholic drinks when they served in the tabernacle of meeting (Leviticus 10:8-10; Ezekiel 44:21). The Aaronic priesthood was abolished on Calvary and dissolved when the Temple was destroyed. When Christ ascended on high to present His Own Blood and cleanse the heavenly sanctuary of the sins of the Old Testament saints He became a priest after the order of Melchizedek (Psalm 110:4; Hebrews 5:5 – 7:28). Since Pentecost all born-again Christians are “kings and priests unto God” (II Corinthians 5:18-21; I Peter 2:9; Revelation 1:6) but with no sacerdotal functions because “the body of Jesus Christ was sacrificed once and for all” (Hebrews 10:4-10). As a priest each Christian is without condemnation in the Presence of God offering the sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving in grateful service from day to day. We are a royal priesthood after the order of Melchizedek because Jesus magnified the Law and made it glorious; and as Eve was “in Adam in the day when they were created” (Genesis 5:2) we were Attributes in the Logos or Word before it was made flesh and dwelt among us (Isaiah 42:21; Matthew 27:46, 50-51; Hebrews 6:19-20).

Jesus MessiahBrother Branham said, “Jesus, His Name on earth was Redeemer, Jesus. When He was on earth, He was the Redeemer; that’s true. But when He conquered death and hell, and overcome them, and ascended on high, He received a new Name. That’s the reason they holler the way they do and don’t get nothing; it’ll be revealed in the thunders” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 158:4). Notice Jesus received His new Name about 2,000 years ago. He is Prophet, Priest and King—Melchizedek. Returning home after conquering the Serpent’s seed Abram gave Melchizedek tithes of all the spoils of victory and Melchizedek served Abram communion (Genesis 14:17-20). In like manner once the battle against Satan, the rider of the four horses of Revelation 6, is won, our Melchizedek in glorified (once virgin-born) human flesh will serve us communion at the (Gk.) ‘bema’ or judgment seat when He commends and introduces us to our brethren.

Through our invisible marriage union we are one with Melchizedek—priests and kings, and as His Wife we bear His new Name. Every married woman knows the Name of her Husband which can hardly be kept secret from her; hence the revelation of Seven Thunders has revealed His new Name—our new Name to us.

Brother Branham said, “He redeemed us for a purpose. He bought us for a purpose. We are kings, spiritual kings. Oh, we are going to be kings upon the earth with Him when He sits upon His throne. But now we are spiritual kings and we reign over a spiritual kingdom . . . Spending our lives as a sweet offering unto Him. Worshipping Him in Spirit and in truth; interceding and petitioning. Priests and kings unto God. We are a peculiar people zealous of good works, created in Him to be children like unto our Father; no wonder the world does not appeal to us” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 35:4 – 36:1). As priests our calling for separation is to offer spiritual sacrifices to God. “. . . You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous Light” (I Peter 2:5:9). “Through our Lord Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, which is the fruit of lips that confess His Name” (Hebrews 13:15).

Since the denominations rejected the Revelation of Jesus Christ, putting Him without their apostate camps, He has been calling the virgins out to meet Him (Matthew 25:6; Revelation 3:20; 18:4). This is a phase of separation! The end-time Message demands a total separation from denominational unbelief, therefore we minister as priests from without to souls imprisoned within those walled cities, calling out modern Rahab’s bound within denominational Jericho’s into the liberty of Jesus Christ. Those who refuse the midnight cry are “the total lost”.

Since Christ has magnified our priestly calling we willingly abstain from strong drinks and wine except at the Lord’s Supper where partaking symbolizes oneness with Him in Word and Spirit. The Old Testament priest was restricted from imbibing wine on the days of his ministry in the tabernacle or temple but as Christians we are always on duty and our priesthood is of a far higher order than the Aaronic priesthood. We enter and remain permanently in His Presence by the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. Our authority comes from our separation as Sampson’s strength was drawn from consecration to his Nazarite vow. In our separation we must recognize and understand our true authority. Demons will flee at the exercise of our God-given authority when they see our consecrated life, even as Jairus the leader of the synagogue whose daughter was sick understood the authority of Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:21-43). When we become consecrated like Paul and Brother Branham, demons will know that we are vessels of divinity; men and women of authority (Matthew 9:18-26; Mark 9:23-29; Acts 19:15).

Revelation 10:8-11 shows us how to consecrate ourselves in this age. We are commanded, “Go and take the little Book which is open in the hand of Christ, and eat it up.” This is the Book of our authority: that authority comes when revelation of the mysteries of the kingdom moves us into separation by consecration in desperation and perseverance to share Enoch’s testimony, “that we please God.” We should ask and take this little Book from Christ with authority: “Give me the little Book;” it is our birthright and authority to judge this evil age. “For the Word of God [that finished the mystery of God by the revelation of the Seven Thunders] is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12).

As God had instructed Joshua, He told Brother Branham “be strong and very courageous”: if you get the people to believe you and are sincere when you pray, nothing will stand before your prayer. Yet there are some among us who despise the mysteries and say, “just preach repentance leave the mysteries alone because they bring discord.” But Jesus told us, “It is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven but to them it is not given” (Deuteronomy 29:29; Matthew 13:11; II Peter 1:2).

These mysteries in the little Book prepare us for the ‘third-pull’ which will vindicate our separation and consecration by our translation. If we have obtained the revelation contained in the opening of the Seven Seals, in other words, if we have the Seven Thunders revelation, not intellectual knowledge or the “second handed robe” as the Prophet termed a good memory for the “letter,” it should move us to desperation for separation and consecration in experiential reality. If we are truly consecrated, the evidence of separation should begin to manifest in us as individuals such certainty that we are assured it will operate unfailingly during the manifestation of the sons of God once the lever is cranked (Romans 8:19).

Before David slew the giant Goliath he was positive God was in his corner because his personal wilderness experiences testified to provenance. The Prophet said, “David was just a little runt, a little bitty fellow, ruddy-looking, kind of a boy like, little stoop-shouldered, little sheepherder,” but his testimonies built faith muscles for the battle with Goliath, “a man of war from his youth,” assuring David of God’s Presence and victory.

Today Satan is working to steal sovereign authority and responsibility over our soul and transfer the determination of our destiny to a third party through attitudes implanted, controlled and manipulated by the worldly system. His most powerful tool of manipulation and control has been the engaging stranger in the home called ‘Television’ whereby he enslaves men with eccentric behaviour disseminated by evil spirits transported through this medium. He manipulates and captures men’s minds with vulgar television shows that conflict their conscience when they see newscasters, film stars, sportsmen and women as role models. Rather than torturing their imagination with the surreal world of Satan’s Eden disseminated via television and social media, they should dedicate those precious hours to transforming them into the stature of the perfect Man for eternal Life in the renewed heavens and earth.

We have THUS SAITH THE LORD on television but the foolish non-elect dispute the Prophet’s “Christians should not have a television set in the home.” As for the engaging internet and social media, WhatsApp, facebook and Youtube, we ought to be more circumspect and “redeem the time for the days are evil.” School children are taught ungodly nonsense such as Darwin’s theory of the evolution of species contrary to science and Biblical creation wherein every seed reproduces after its own kind. I am now growing old, but since my youth I have never seen a lizard become a turtle. We must renew our mind in order to be transformed into the sons of God. Paul foretold this malaise saying, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” (II Timothy 3:1-5).

Satan is weakening mankind, transferring our sovereign authority to the state, police court, school peer groups, company employees social peer groups, company employers, school and religious organizations so that we tend to depend on these organs for our welfare rather than personal industry and integrity as people separated unto God. We must place absolute dependence on God’s Word. Trust and obey it, believe it and simply trust that it will work for us at all times. If it worked for Moses, Elijah and the four Hebrew children in Babylon it will not fail us. If it worked for our Brother Branham it should work for us. Brother Brahman was our example of a separated man under pre-eminence to the Word of God in our age.

The time is at hand. We should learn to follow Christ the revealed Word as our Exemplar at all times—not our culture, class, or family neighbours, or work colleagues. One with God is majority. Jesus said if we have given our vow to Him, we must carry our own cross and meet our obligations as Christians no matter what the world says. Collectivism subverts God’s natural laws. Today men have been seduced into following the popular opinion of the crowd. We say, oh that’s what everyone is doing; we don’t want to be seen as odd balls! Christians are odd balls who “walk not according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience”  (Ephesians 2:2). Let us walk as separated ones exercising God-given authority over our lives and households: the rightful authority over children is two parents under God, not the establishment. Authority should end with parents but the world is bent on stealing this away because we lack the knowledge to assert our God-given rights. Some believers have yielded their authority and responsibility to teach God’s Word to their children by abandoning them for church and school teachers to seed their innocent minds with pagan myths and traditions like the trinity, Santa Claus, Christmas and Easters, because the believing parents did not sow and cultivate the Good Seed. How many children of Message believers can pray at the age of nine or know and understand the difference between Bible doctrines and that which is peddled by mainstream denominational churches? Sisters have absolved their responsibility as teachers of children (II Timothy 1:5) and must dutifully teach their children in the way they should go so that when they grow up they will not forsake it (Proverbs 22:6). In order to hold the Token over our household we must establish firm rules but exercise their authority in gentleness as we apply Jesus’ teaching to be “wise as serpents but harmless as doves” (Matthew 10:6).

The true life should be by the natural law and God’s unchanging Word. Sadly we are being unconsciously conditioned or trained by the world system to transfer personal sovereignty. Churchgoers are too lazy to pray for themselves and study but prefer rather to transfer their God given responsibility to their pastor; nonetheless they will be held accountable. They transfer parental responsibility to their nanny and school authorities which is why we have such an avalanche of juvenile delinquency today. But as we know from management studies man can delegate responsibility but not accountability. So we are accountable if we fail to take authority over our flesh and those who live under our roof, and wherever our token can be displayed for Christ’s glory. In our separation the exercise of personal authority should be our quiet walk (Matthew 10:16). We should display our Token of separation at all times at home, Church, in the office, farm, factory, market and all public places like the slave who was the son of an African king and maintained his regal dignity and displayed high moral integrity and godly character under all situations.

In our separation we should not be distracted by concern for material necessities because Jesus is able to provide. He knows and cares for our needs; many do not receive what they need because they did not ask, or they asked amiss. When we ask, let us discern what is right and in line with His will expecting an answer. If our spiritual standing is right, we will receive whatsoever we ask. Now I am not drifting into the prosperity Gospel which is senseless and was never a move of the Spirit (Philippians 3:17-19). We must start now to exercise our true authority. We cannot wait until the time of the squeeze and manifestation of the sons of God. Now is separation time, a time to experience a foretaste of the third-pull. Brother Branham said “If God has to push a man into doing his will that is not faith.” It is time to familiarize ourselves with the will of God in every thing and in every circumstance and once we feel we have it proceed in faith knowing God will redirect our steps if we are not quite in line with his will. It is unacceptable not to try. If we walk pleasing to the Lord no devil can harm us, not even death. We are the end-time Bride that will not taste death but live for the manifestation of the sons of God and the translation. Let us apply the Word now in every situation.

“Be not unequally yoked together with unbelievers. Come out from among them and be ye separate” (II Corinthians 6:14). I fear too many of among us have closer ties to the world and things of the world than they have with the Lord and His Word. Unless we are separated we cannot have the certainty and conviction to speak the Word with authority as there is so much noise in the air we cannot discern the still small voice of the Lord. You might say “Oh Jesus, I have failed so often I am not worthy to continue the race.” But Brother Paul admonished us, “Brethren, I do not claim to have already attained to the full stature of the perfect man—the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus which is my aim, but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind I reach out for what lies ahead” (Philippians 3:13-14). Therefore forget your past failures, your past life of unworthiness; forget your mistakes, forget your past hindrances and let us, like Paul, press toward the mark for the prize of high calling of God in Christ. Soon cometh the resurrection earthquake, be ye separated! nl960.htm

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we appreciate your company and fellowship in Christ.

Despite the violent actions of too often alien ‘useful idiots’ organized and funded by the enemy of God and man, President Donald Trump’s inauguration memorable occasion. His sober address offered hope for a return to decency and sanity. His first official actions appear to have been to remove the Department of Labor’s ungodly report on lesbians, bisexuals, gays and transgender people in the workplace from the White House Website, followed by the Obama’s globalist climate change HOAX and in its place an America First Energy Plan, and an America First (as against a Rothschild-CIA first) Foreign Policy. God bless Syria’s President Al Assad, and national leaders such as Slobodan Milosevic, Muammar Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein, the ‘road kill’ of previous presidents, and have mercy upon millions of their citizens accounted ‘collateral damage’ of contemporary war criminal US presidents.

In our main article Brother Branham types the end-time events in our apostate Christian dispensation wherein church and state are reuniting for the second crucifixion of the Son of God (Hebrews 6:4-8) as they united after Constantine organized the Judaeo-Roman Universal Church (Revelation 2:18-26) which brought the Dark Ages. This was the antitype of Ahab’s Israel after he married the pagan Jezebel, bringing Israel’s Dark Age which led Judah to apostasy wherein the priesthood united with pagan Rome for the first crucifixion of the Son of God.

The Great Satan

CIA crest

January 18, 2017 — “The Great Satan” is a derogatory epithet for the United States of America and occasionally also for the government of the United Kingdom—both imperialist states, with a long history of interfering in Iran’s internal affairs. Because of its atheistic Communism the Soviet Union was called the “Lesser Satan,” and the State of Israel was condemned as the “Little Satan.” The ‘hidden hand’ always supports both sides of the Hegelian dialectic: the election and inauguration of President Donald Trump has brought both thesis and antithesis into the spotlight. The synthesis is revealed in God’s Holy Bible.

On one hand we have the Judaeo-American Empire of the 9/11 Neocons whose Talmudic objective is global hegemony sought by the Jews’ City of London, the Judaeo-Roman church, and Judaeo-Communism. When Adam took Eve back to himself he forfeited man’s dominion over earth, since when Satan has been the god of this evil age. He did not offer actual possession of “the kingdoms of the world” to Jesus Messiah but delegated authority “and their [implied] glory” if He would “prostrate Himself and worship him” (Matthew 4:8-10)—not as God but in obeisance to his superiority as overlord. (See Strong’s Concordance 4352).

We know from Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 17:10-18 that the Jews’ City of London and the Judaeo-Roman church have entered a covenant that will come into force at the close of the Gentile dispensation when Los Angeles sinks beneath the Pacific. Rome will rule the first stage of Lucifer’s one world government when he incarnates the Pope, but abrogate her agreement after the midst of Daniel’s Seventieth Week whereupon Jewry will re-communize Russia and ‘nuke’ both Vatican City State and the United States of America from the face of the earth (Daniel 7:25-27; Revelation 11:1-13; 18:8-20). God has allowed Communism to rise up as His tool to destroy the false church.

On the other hand we have the American nation represented by Donald Trump and nominal Christian nationalists—not globalists—whose objective is to recover America’s sovereignty from the alien power and “make America great again.” But pulpit delinquency and a second-hand religion has made them apostates, ignorant of “the present Truth—what Jesus is doing now,” and impersonating the Word for a day gone by (II Timothy 3:1 – 4:4; II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7; Revelation 3:17-20). They know not that the United States rejected her last opportunity for national repentance on the jubilee of the Laodicean Church Age in 1956/7.

In coordination with mainstream media a ‘Purple Revolution’ has been engineered supported and financed by the Neocons with intent to disrupt the inauguration and destabilizing the Trump presidency. ‘Colour revolutions’ are US intelligence operations which consist in covertly supporting as well as infiltrating protest movements with a view to triggering ‘regime change’ under the banner of a pro-democracy template. The objective of a ‘colour revolution’ is to manipulate elections, create violence, foment social unrest and use the protest movement to topple existing government. The ultimate foreign policy goal is to instate a compliant pro-US government (or ‘puppet regime’).

Engineered protest movements are carefully planned. They are intelligence ops. They use non-governmental organizations to recruit protesters. In August 1999, the CIA set up a training program for Serbian NGO OTPOR which subsequently played a key role in the engineered protest movement conducive to the downfall of President Slobodan Milosevic. A few years later, OTPOR established a training and strategizing outfit entitled The Centre for Applied Non Violent Action and Strategies (CANVAS). CANVAS became a consulting outfit specializing in ‘Revolution’ on contract to the CIA.

[When “the home of the brave and land of the free” apostatised, the United States became a rogue nation and pariah state in Satan’s service. When church and state unite she will become the image to the beast (Revelation 13:11-18)].

ISIS=USACANVAS was set up by the CIA as ‘an International network of trainers and consultants’ in the ‘Revolution Business.’ Funded by Freedom House, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) as well private corporate foundations. CANVAS constitutes a consulting outfit, advising and training US sponsored opposition groups in more than 40 countries. In this regard, OTPOR played a key role in fomenting the mass uprisings during the Arab Spring in Egypt in 2011. What appeared to be a spontaneous democratization process was a carefully planned intelligence operation.

Several foundations involved in funding colour revolutions internationally are involved in funding the anti-Trump campaign. While CANVAS’ mandate is to oversee ‘colour revolutions’ internationally, it also has links with a number of NGOs currently involved in the anti-Trump campaign including The Occupy Wall Street Movement (OWS). OWS launched by Adbusters was funded via the Tides Foundation which in turn is funded by a number of corporate foundations and charities, including the Ford Foundation, Gates Foundation and the Open Society Institute of George Soros. Ford is known to have historical links to US intelligence …

Comment: These wandering sons of Cain, “fugitive and vagabond” earthbound ‘citizens of this world’ are apostates and atheists serving the ‘Deep State’ within the United States—’useful idiots’; materialists with no inheritance in this world or hope in the world to come.

Does the Deep State have it in for Trump?

January 16, 2017 — First, you gotta hand it to Wall Street. The financial elite were 1,000% behind Hillary. Then, when Donald Trump won the White House, within minutes, they were in his cabinet. During the campaign, not only were they loading Hillary up with millions of dollars in funding, but they also regularly predicted doom if ‘The Donald’ were to win.

Then, apparently within seconds, in the middle of the night, they saw a great dollar sign in the sky . . . ‘By this sign will you conquer’ was written upon it. Not since the conversion of Constantine has a turnaround been so abrupt and so complete. In a flash, the analysts at the nation’s top Wall Street firm suddenly realised something that had eluded them throughout the long and bitter presidential campaign: Tax cuts and spending increases might not be so bad after all!

The great selloff ended. A buying spree took over . . . pushing up the price of Goldman Sachs stock by 40% and making its CEO, Lloyd Blankfein, the No. 1 beneficiary of the election. (Since the election, the value of his Goldman holdings have increased by $163 million.) Now the Goldman boys are in practically every important office—Mnuchin in the Treasury, Cohn at the National Economic Council, Clayton (a lawyer who has represented Goldman for years) at the SEC, and Bannon and Scaramucci, also from the Goldman litter, ready to do what is asked . . . Henceforth, they will think no more about what is good for Goldman, the Street, and themselves. Now, they are public servants . . . with only the welfare and happiness of others to worry about.

That’s what we love about democracy: it has the power to transform people as they rise to the challenges of public office. People we considered lowlife hustlers and two-bit pols are suddenly elevated. Their feet grow to fill Jefferson’s boots . . . their heads expand to wear Adams’ hat . . . and, well, sometimes they can even wear Taft’s pants.

Seriously, what we admire so much about Goldman is that it is honest. We know what the Goldman bunch is up to: It is looking out for No. 1 . . . Italian economist and sociologist Vilfredo . . . Pareto explained that no matter what you call your government, it will be run by a few sharp people—whom he called ‘foxes’. They figure out how to get control of the political infrastructure and make it work for them . . . Goldman is one foxy organisation; it wasted no time moving into the DC chicken house.

But what is really surprising is what is going on in the ‘security’ industry.

Spooks are the foxiest of the foxy . . . and the deepest part of the Deep State. Since the end of the Second World War, they’ve managed to scare trillions of dollars out of the taxpayers . . . even though the US has not faced a worthy adversary at least since 1989 . . . and even though almost all their ‘intelligence’ is either trivial or wrong.

From the bungled Bay of Pigs Invasion to the fall of the Soviet Union (which Stansfield Turner, who led the CIA from 1977 to 1981, admitted that the agency ‘missed by a mile’), US intelligence services have been out to lunch. More recently, it was the CIA that dutifully fed the neo-cons the phony weapons-of-mass-destruction story they wanted to hear, resulting in a war that has so far cost $7 trillion.

And in the latest brouhaha over Russian interference in the US election, apparently the key ‘intelligence’ came from watching the Russia Today international television network (on which your editor is interviewed from time to time).

Clownish ‘intelligence!’ America’s spooks may or may not be very good at supplying useful intelligence, but they are definitely good at manipulating the system to stay in their cushy positions of power and money.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper clearly lied to Congress when he said the NSA wasn’t collecting information on US citizens, yet he continues to draw full pay.

Former acting Director of the CIA Mike Morell claimed Trump was an ‘unwitting’ Russian agent, whatever that means. CIA Director John Brennan lied about collateral deaths from drone strikes. (He claimed there were none.) And Morell’s predecessor, David Petraeus, delivered state secrets to his biographer, with whom he was having an adulterous affair, then lied to the FBI about it. He got nothing more than a slap on the wrist.

Time and again, incompetence and criminality in the ‘security’ industry are overlooked and forgiven. And still, there are no fewer than 17 intelligence agencies in the US, with thousands of snoops, analysts and informants paid largely out of classified budgets.

At a cost to taxpayers of billions of dollars a year, they spy on us, foreigners, and each other. Why, then, would they pick fights with the new president over clownish ‘intelligence’ reports?

If we’re right . . . and the main goal of the Deep State is to shift power and money from the rest of society to itself . . . what purpose is served by annoying the new commander in chief? We don’t know. Mistake? Miscalculation? Something doesn’t add up. Full story:

The Beatification of Barack Obama

Baracl Obama

January 15, 2017 — Obama is the first President in American history to be at war for every single day of an 8 year presidency. Obama has carried out 10x more drone strikes than Bush ever did. Every Tuesday a military aide presents Obama with a “kill list”, and the “decent, gracious” Obama picks a few names off a list . . . and kills them. And their families. And their neighbours . . . After declaring he wanted to build a “nuclear free world”, Obama committed to spending $1 TRILLION dollars on rebuilding America’s nuclear weapons. Under Obama, the NSA et al. were able to spy on, essentially, the whole world. Obama’s administration declared a “war on whistleblowers”, enacting new laws and initiating what they call the “Insider Threat Program” . . .

In terms of foreign policy, despite his press-created and non-sensical reputation as a non-interventionist, American Special Forces are currently operating in over 70% of the world’s 195 countries . . . Before Obama came into office, Libya was the richest and most developed nation in Africa. It is now a hell-hole . . . Syria, probably the word that will follow Obama out of office as “Iraq” did his predecessor, is a total failure . . . Obama’s administration next foreign policy target was Ukraine . . . In Yemen, the poorest country in the ME is being bombed to shreds by the richest . . .

The Middle-East is ablaze from Libya to Afghanistan, and from Yemen to Turkey. Relations with Russia are as precarious as at any time since WWII, thanks to America’s efforts to break Russia economically and shatter their global influence. There is no sign that America intends to back-down (see the recent red-scare style hysteria in the American press). Likewise America has positioned itself to have a massive conflict with China in the South China Sea . . . Under Obama’s notional leadership the world has moved to the very brink of self-immolation in the name of protecting American hegemony. Domestically America still crumbles. Full story:

Post Election Soft Coup: ‘Fake News,’ CIA Intervention, US-NATO Militarization

January 13, 2017 — . . . Russian-Hack-Influenced-the-US-Elections campaign, initiated by the Obama White House and referred to by President elect Donald Trump as a ‘witch hunt,’ continues to be confounding to much of the American public with some of these concerns:


  • to what extent has the CIA intervened in the Clinton-Trump post-election results just as it has over the years in the elections of so many [81] other countries; and

  • whether the unfounded allegations and intervention have created a climate threatening to the Constitutional order of presidential succession. As if those troublesome post-election issues were not enough, the American public has been conveniently distracted by flawed intel ‘assessments’ (with Obama’s personal accusation of Russian President Putin) from the urgency of two impending foreign policy quagmires that Obama is gifting to the Trump Administration.


. . .”one of the largest movement of US troops to Europe since the Cold War” to counter ‘Russian aggression’ with the quiet arrival of over 4,000 American Special Op and NATO troops including 2,800 tanks and assorted military equipment” . . . to be deployed to Bulgaria, Romania, Poland and Baltic states along the eastern European border with Russia . . . most Americans are unperturbed . . . US air strikes in concert with rebel insurgent attacks on Syria utilities (electricity and gas) as well as attacks on and contamination of Damascus water pipelines are all meant to bring a civilian population to its knees . . .

As a cultivated political anxiety in the US anticipates Trump’s inauguration, against a well-coordinated effort that continues to fuel a false narrative and public rebellion, there is an undercurrent of expectation that another impending crisis just prior to January 20th might deliver a final knock-out to a Trump presidency . . .

President PutinComment: 4Chan claims to have fabricated anti-Trump report as a hoax. The enmity of the puerile mind of the physical Serpent’s seed ruling over an apostate nation that rejected its last opportunity for national repentance in 1956/7 explains how this happened.

The insanity of Obama’s mind spending billions of dollars on a psyop to make an enemy of betrayed Russia in hopes of advancing the Talmudic objective of global hegemony. “A US armoured brigade (3rd Armoured Brigade, 4th Infantry Division) is on the move to Russia’s Baltic border. After its equipment began arriving in Europe last week so now have its soldiers. The move is so big it will require 37 trains and over one thousand rail cars to transport from Germany to Poland. A US armoured brigade fields over 400 tracked and over 1300 wheeled vehicles including 80 62-ton Abrams tanks, 140 Bradley armoured fighting vehicles and 400 humvees.”

[Proving the Jew Henry Kissinger is correct: “Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy”].

“3rd Armoured will spend nine months in Poland and Lithuania (covering the so-called “Suwalki gap”) after which it will be replaced by another heavily armoured unit. Thus from now on nearly four thousands American soldiers will be stationed on Russia doorstep for ever. Overall US has 70,000 troops in Europe. Russia has zero troops in North America. US troops are deploying as part of NATO’s “Operation Atlantic Resolve” announced when the new cold war blew up in 2014″ (

Ten Aircraft Carriers aligned in a Row

January 12, 2017 — The charges of Chinese and Russian aggression are fantastic lies. China has not declared the Gulf of Mexico or the seas off the California coasts to be “areas of Chinese national interest,” but the killer bitch Hillary in the regime of the Nobel Peace Laureate declared the South China Sea to be “an area of US national interest.” This is provocation beyond provocation. No intelligent diplomat would ever make such a ridiculous and provocative claim.

Russia conquered Georgia in response to Georgia’s invasion of South Ossetia, but released it and did not reincorporate the former Russian province back into the Russian Federation where it had resided for 300 years. Russia refused the requests for reincorporation from the Donetsk and Luhansk breakaway republics in Ukraine. Russia has not declared the Baltics and Eastern Europe to be areas of Russian national interest, but the US has and has incorporated them into Washington’s mercenary army, stationing troops, tanks, and missiles there with which to attack Russia. Russia has not responded in kind.

All of the aggression in the world stems from Washington. This is plain as day. How come so few see the obvious? Who else but Washington has been at war since the Clinton regime began murdering people in nine countries? . . . As it is a known fact that the CIA owns the American and European print and TV media, why would the CIA ignore the liberal-left “progressive” Internet media? . . . Anyone stupid enough to believe the official 9/11 story is not sufficiently intelligent to be qualified to be left-wing or even a sentient being . . . Full story:

Freedom of Speech in Australia

Late last year the Church made two submissions to the Parliamentary Joint Commission on Human Rights to consider:


  • whether the operation of Part IIA of the Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (Cth) (including sections 18C and 18D) impose unreasonable restrictions on freedom of speech; and
  • whether the complaints-handling procedures of the Australian Human Rights Commission should be reformed.

The Delusional War on Warmth

January 18, 2017 — There has been no global warming for nearly 20 years. Right now, the great ice sheets are growing thicker and record snow is blanketing much of the climate change leader—the Northern hemisphere landmass. Solar panels are blinded by snow, and turbines don’t turn in the cold still air or have to be shut down because of icing or high winds. Like all green things, wind and solar power often hibernate in winter.

Meanwhile, the un-loved all-weather energy producers (coal, gas and nuclear) are straining at their limits, as families huddle around heaters fearing the first flickers of failure from overloaded power grids. No food is produced from land smothered in snow—farmers fear late frosts and welcome early spring rains and warmth.

For the last million years, Earth has experienced long cycles of ice separated by short warm inter-glacials. Today’s warm era is already a mature twelve thousand years old and Earth’s climate is fluctuating naturally towards the next glacial cycle in which many animals and plants will perish. Only fools would assist the return of the ice . . .

Modi’s Man-Made Calamity: How Many will Die?

January 15, 2017 — At this point, every sane and responsible person in India should be asking: How many tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands, or millions of people in India are going to die from hunger, starvation, malnutrition and disease as a result of Modi’s demonetisation?

Reports from the rural and semi-rural areas of India, from towns and villages, already indicate that hunger is widespread because of the nonexistence of cash. This artificial crisis was created on November 8, 2016 when Prime Minister Narendra Modi arbitrarily declared 86% of the nation’s currency worthless as legal tender—a draconian diktat taken without any prior discussion with his cabinet, Parliament, or the people.

The so-called demonetisation policy has had devastating effects across all sectors of Indian society, crippling businesses and farmers, causing retail stores and vendors to shut down, increasing unemployment, and forcing ordinary people to lose billions of man-hours . . . waiting in endless queues at banks to exchange unusable currency notes or to withdraw the meagre cash allowed.

But the worst-hit are the poor, the day-labourers, and the rural and semi-rural working class who make up around two-thirds of India’s population—over 650 million people . . . these people have no bank accounts or credit cards . . . more than 300 million people have no government-approved ID . . . needed to convert their hard-earned cash into approved denominations . . . worst-hit are the people who helped vote Modi into power . . .

Comment: It is later than you think or dare imagine. This historic moment is a precursor to the close of the Christian dispensation, the utter defeat of the Israeli faux state and its abandonment by many faux Jews, enabling the prophesied return of the children Jacob and the restoration of the pre-1967 borders according to UN Resolution 181 signed by Israel in bad faith on November 29, 1947 (Isaiah 13:6-16; Daniel 11:39; Joel 2:12; Zechariah 14:2; Revelation 16:19).

THUS SAITH THE LORD – Prophecies for this Day


You remember, brothers, if I say these things to be nasty, I need to be at the altar. I’m telling you, it’s THUS SAITH THE LORD! If God hasn’t vindicated I’ve told you the Truth, around the nation, around the world, then tell me where the mistake was. I’m telling you the Truth! Get back to God, quickly! Get out of these systems, ’cause the Bible says, in the Book of Revelation, that “the Roman Catholic hierarchy was a whore, and she was a mother of harlots” (what is that? Churches, systems) [Revelation 17:5-6].

And where did the Methodist Church, where’d the Lutheran Church, come from? Where’d the Methodist, Baptist, where did all organizations come from? God never did organize a church. Catholic Church said they began back there, when “Jesus organized the church.” I want the page in history, or the page in the Bible. There never was an organization for three hundred and six years. After the death of the last apostle, then they formed the [First] Nicene Council and made an organization. And when Luther came out . . . he was a great man of God, but as soon as he left, that little group of people went over and formed another organization. Then the Holy Spirit went out upon John Wesley, he never organized anything, but after he left then they organized. Then the Holy Ghost come in with Pentecostals, and they went out from the Methodist. And what happened? Then they organized.

But there’ll be a one-man system come forth with the power and the anointing of Elijah, to fulfil this prophecy. Hallelujah! He will shake it. And, remember, he prophesied to them, and prophesied, and told them all the things, and God worked with him. But his final Message was attacked on the White House. When John came, his final Message was attacked on the White House of that day. Elijah’s final Message, when he walked down that road that morning after being in the Presence of God out there, walked down that road with old hairs all over him, his bald head shining, the whiskers blowing, them little old eyes was gleaming with the glory of God. That stick in his hand, and his feet just as steady as they could be. What’s he doing? Walking right down from Samaria into the presence of the White House, and saying, “THUS SAITH THE LORD!” Fearing nothing. The churches had turned him down; the people had turned him down, so now he’s giving his final attack, upon the White House.

Then what happened after that? Listen! After that attack, his voice became quiet, nobody heard him no more. God called him off the scene, said, “Elijah, you’ve done made your Message known to all of Israel, they know it. Now come up here in the wilderness, get away from them, separate yourself ’cause I’m going to do something. I’m going to show them what it is to turn My Message down.” What set in? War, famine, starvation.

THUS SAITH THE HOLY SPIRIT, “Watch what’s coming! Watch what’s going to follow! There was a famine, there will be a famine!” Oh, maybe not for bread, but for hearing the Word of God and His Truth. All the churches will socialize and go right on into it just the same, just like they’ve already been swallowed up with it.

What did Elijah do? He found a hidden spring, way up in the mountain where he got some Water of Life, Divine revelations from God as he set up there under the power of God. The revelations being a little hidden spring, while the rest of them was famishing. And God bless His servants (them ravens), they brought him something to eat while he was isolated from the people. And they were down there famishing for a revival and all going on, “Don’t hear no more of his revivals at . . . Where is that old crank that goes around blasting our organizations? Where’s he at now?” They didn’t know. He pulled hisself with God, out into a isolated place where they didn’t hear his voice. Then they begin to see.

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. You think you are dying for a good spiritual revival; you wait till after a bit. You just wait, long and cry to hear the Word of God. The Bible said so! “There’ll be a famine in the last days,” said the prophet, “and not for bread and water alone, but for hearing the true Word of God” (Amos 8:11). And that voice will be quiet, in the wilderness somewhere, hid away.

He ordained the ravens, His servants. Bless them birds, His servants that kept the voice of Elijah alive during the time of his isolation from the church. The ravens brought him flesh and bread at morning, and flesh and bread in the evening, and he drank from the little fountain while the rest of them down there were doing without any spiritual food and water.

Then one day, after sin had took its toll, and God has brought His people to their knees . . . Jezebel took everything, she wiped it all up, and she will do it again! That’s THUS SAITH GOD’S HOLY BIBLE, “She will do it again.” She’s right on the throne now, behind the figurehead; twisting it any way she wants to, nobody’s going to stop her. Certainly, nobody’s going to stop her now, because what they couldn’t get in the religious circles they cut it all into politics, and there they done it. Uh-huh, that’s exactly what they done. Which, the political will be a boycott just exactly back to the Mark of the Beast, as sure as I’m standing here. See? And the Bible said it (Revelation 13:14-18).

I know we’re getting late, I’ll hurry. I got to get this last word in, if the Lord will let me.

Watch! Elijah stayed up there until God moved him. He had no revivals. He preached not against it or nothing. He just stood up there with God alone, out in the wilderness, ’cause he was a wilderness man. He was raised in the wilderness. So was John raised in the wilderness (Luke 1:80).

He went out in the wilderness alone with God, took away from the church after he gave his Message. And the church turned it down, turned it down. And finally the organizations wouldn’t do nothing, so he just had to move out. God called him off the scene, took him on out in the wilderness, said, “Come on out here, they won’t listen anymore. Come on, then I’m going to throw My judgment upon them.” Oh, yes, he will be here one of these days, you watch.

Then after the days of his prophecy, what happened? The church languished, the great terror of Jezebel, she took them all in herself, gobbles them all up. Took them in herself, and built groves and everything else.

But, one day, God called him out again! Here he come out. Listen close now, and don’t get angry with me. I’m saying THUS SAITH THE LORD! When he come out, what did God do? He sent him to a widow woman. She once had a man power over her head, but it took death to set her free so she could believe the prophet’s Word. You notice that? She had a husband that guided her this way and that way, in one of the schools down there. But during this great drought, he had been gobbled up, death had took him. She was no more hooked in any organization, so she was ready now to hear the Word of the Lord. A woman, meaning the Church; a widow, that her husband (organization) had died, [a type of today’s spiritually dead world church system], and she was just barely think she’s a-living herself. And God said, “Go down to her now, she will hear you, I’ve commanded her.”

Oh, we think sometimes, you little group there that’s so faithful and do everything you can to have a meeting, to try to show to the people that your heart’s right and you want them to get right, you think you’re having a hard time. But, remember, God’s got His eye on you! You love Him, I know you love Him, you wouldn’t set here, you wouldn’t attend any such a thing. God’s got His eye on you. Yes!

And when he did, her husband had died, her organization died, so now she’s ready to hear the prophet’s Word. So when the prophet come to the gate and asked her for a little water, she went to get it. Then he said, “Bring me a morsel of meal.”

And she turned and said, “As the Lord lives, I don’t have nothing but just enough.”

Now, it looked like that he was sent to take what little she had, but it was vice versa. When she was willing to give what she had to support of the Word, God fed her. And if you’re willing to give what Spirit you do have, what Spirit that God’s give you to support of the Word, then God will keep you alive. Hallelujah! O glory to God! Do you see it, church? Don’t think I’m beside myself, I’m not. But what you have got, what little you do believe in God, what faith you have got, place it on the Word, not on organization! Put it in God’s Word, He will keep you alive.

She was ready then, ’cause she couldn’t before, ’cause they wouldn’t let her. But now she’s ready. Will she receive it? God sent a prophet her way. Will she receive his Word? Will she receive this prophet? Yes, she did. And he told her, said, “Now, what little life you have got, place it in here, bring it to me first.” And what happened? When the rest of the world was languishing and dying in hunger, her and her children and her household all eat three good meals a day, divine revelation on the Word. I hope you see it, friend.

What went on? He stayed there until the famine was over, living with this woman (this Church) that received him and believed his Word. And he kept her alive (kept the Church alive) by the Word of the Lord, because he said “THUS SAITH THE LORD.” (Jezebel Religion, March 19, 1961, p. 20:94-113; Isaiah 53:1; Amos 8:11; Romans 8:25-32; II Thessalonians 2:1-3; Revelation 2:21-23; 13:8-18; 14:9-13; 17; 18; 19:20; 20:10). And if you have THUS SAITH THE LORD He will keep you alive and change you in the atoms (I Corinthians 15:52).

Union among the Churches

“And so there’ll be a unionize amongst the churches, and they’ll unite themselves together, form up the head of the confederation of churches, which they’ve already got a big UN building and every denomination is in it. And you’ll either have to belong to some of those denominations or be ousted. And that’s the time where we have to show our colours and be sure that we know, not a guess work, but know THUS SAITH THE LORD where you’re standing (Romans 8:19). The little church has always been in the minority; it’s a little bitty group that . . . a little thread, like a red string that wipes through the Bible, but it’s the Church always. And we want to remember it” (The Patmos Vision, December 4, 1960, p. 79:57; Revelation 13:11-18).

Destruction of the Berlin Wall marks the Revival of the Old Roman Empire

“There has been a Roman revival. Do you know what happens? If they give the Eastern part of Berlin back, that puts communism out. That puts the Roman Empire just exactly into the circle it was in the times of Jesus Christ. Certainly it does. Perfectly” (End-time Seed Sign, March 19, 1962; Daniel 2:40-45; 7:7-8, 19-26; Revelation 13:1-8; 17:12-18).

(This prophecy was made in 1962, six months after the “Wall” was constructed between East and West Berlin. In 1989 George Bush I of the USA had an audience with the Pope, followed three weeks later by Michael Gorbachev of the USSR. The peaceful revolution of October/November saw the overthrow of Soviet rule in the East and on December 9th, Chancellor Helmut Kohl in a televised address from the Brandenburg Gate, thanked the Pope for his role in the reunion of Germany).

What we are not told is that the Plenipotentiary for the Constitutionally Special Status of Berlin (A Body of Public Law, Provisional Seat Königsweg 1 W-1000, Berlin-Zehlendorf 1), “forced, approved and called up for essential service by the Western Powers, had on November 15, 1987, in the Reichstag already announced the exact date the Wall would fall in 1989.” As treasonous President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who allowed 2,403 servicemen to be slaughtered at Pearl Harbor to initiate America’s entry into WWII said: “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way”.

There’ll come a Persecution

Papal Keys

Now you see why my voice is going to be stopped pretty soon, somebody’s going to know! Yes! Why? Revelation 2:20, she called herself a “prophetess.” You just watch the wave of sin happen now. You watch . . . go plumb to the core. You watch modernistic, watch ungodly things happen in the churches. “And finally there’ll come a persecution,” the Bible says so, THUS SAITH THE LORD! Certainly, there will be.

Then what’s going to happen? Just like it did then, so will it be now. She was the power behind it; she was the one who controlled it. Read . . . I believe it’s . . . about the 17th or 18th chapter [of I Kings], along in there, you’ll find what Jezebel did: how she took Ahab, and he couldn’t say nothing about it because it was his wife. Look what the nation was built upon then, a backslidden Israelite with a pagan wife behind him who was a worshiper of Baalim. And what did she do? She finally made everything so modernistic, and so nice, and the people had it so easy, until the whole church fell for it, preachers and all. Didn’t Elijah say, “Lord, I’m the only one’s left”? And as it was then, it parallels today.

All of them was afraid to say anything. Isn’t it just like the same thing today? They were afraid to say something. So we find out, they were just loose, haphazard, drunk carrying on, pleasure mad, and everything else, just as it is today. Jezebel twisting those Scriptures. What did she . . . or them laws, as Jezebel will twist. Remember, Jezebel, she calls herself a “prophetess,” to subdue the people, and she says that she is “the only voice of God on the earth.” She will make the carnal mind believe that as sure as the world (Revelation 2:20-24).

“There’ll come a worship of a woman, in the United States, and that’ll be Mary. I seen it, thirty . . . 1931. Seven things happened. I got it right on paper here, with me, wrote it in 1931. How that I said “This President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, he will cause all the world, help do it, send the world to war.” Hadn’t come to war yet, during times of depression. I said, “Another thing . . . ” And my mother, a square-back Democrat, if she didn’t look at me hard when I said that. I said, “I don’t care if there’s a Republican or if he was a Socialist or whatever he is, this is THUS SAITH THE LORD. And I said, “Doing this, they’re permitting women to vote. And when they do that, they done one of the greatest disgraces this nation ever done.” And I said, “Someday they’ll pay for it.” And they did at this last election. That’s what elected him, women.

And you precious coloured people in the South, how you voted! You say, “You have no business saying that in the pulpit.” Oh, yes, I have, it’s the Word of God! And the stain of Abraham Lincoln, the one that freed you, laying yonder in that museum on a woman’s dress, and you sell your birthright. Shame on you.

And you people, for politics, because you’re just a good Democrat, voted for something like that and sold your birthrights of Americanism and Christianity, to give it over to the prostitute that run us in this nation, what made us what we was. See how she’s been creeping in? Real easy, until now she’s on the throne. Sure! The White House throne.

Watch! Already . . . Did you see the other day about the Catholic schools and Protestant schools? Support the Catholic school but not the Protestant school. Oh, brother! You watch for a wave of stuff coming forth now. Notice, and as they did it, look what taken place. All this sin heaping in. Got to a place and got the nation in that kind of a staggering place.

A few years ago, when they had . . . the Pentecostals first broke out; it saved the nation a few years ago when [Roman Catholic] Al Smith was going to run. America knowed better then. But Pentecost got so worldly it went right on in and sold their rights as a Christian, to politics, and its politics ahead of the Bible. Oh, my!

Now, just a minute, and watch just how this comes out. Now, we find out what they did and the things they did, we see it paralleling here just exactly, sin on every hand. Jezebel come in, she bewitched all the people. And notice, finally, she begin to build big shrines to Baalim. Is that right? And the Baalim priests flocked from everywhere to get into that place, and begin to contaminate the land with Baalim worship.

Look how they’ve done, look how they’ve weeded in. Just the things they done, look where they’re at today. Look at Catholicism swallowing up, swallowing up, swallowing up; marrying into, breaking this, just exactly what Daniel said they’d do. Iron and clay wouldn’t mix, but mingling their seeds one with another, breaking. Every Protestant girl marries a Catholic boy has to raise her children Catholic. All like that, marrying, intermingling like that until it’s come to a place till the whole United States is all wormed over” (Jezebel Religion, March 19, 1961, p. 13:63-72; Daniel 2:40-45; II Timothy 4:2-4; Revelation 13; 17:11-18).

In the original sin the first Eve committed adultery with the Devil-incarnate Serpent, a giant man-like creature. She bore Satan’s vicarious son Cain who was physical Serpent’s seed, accursed of God and absent the Book of Life which is the first Adam’s genealogy (Genesis 3:15). Jesus Christ is the last Adam and “near KINSMAN” to the first Adam and his race; He is not the last Cain and cannot redeem those in his bloodline.

Adam called his wife “Eve, because she was the mother of all living” (Genesis 3:20) but Adam was not the father of all living. The Judaeo-Roman Catholic church claims to be the second Eve and mother of all spiritual living and that salvation is in her alone. However, she and her children are spiritual Serpent’s seed, bastard born of adultery against Christ the Word, because her words are not “God’s Spirit and eternal Life” (John 6:63) but pagan Babylonian creed and dogma.

Quick Message will shake all Nations

I know it’s hard. It’s just like if a doctor gave you medicine, and you refused to take it, then don’t blame the doctor if you die. This is like medicine. What about these people that always claim to my being a woman hater. You see, you just watch the way the women act and I’ll show you where the church is. The women’s morals are a Laodicea, in the world, physically naked, miserable, blind, and don’t know it.

The people, the women of the world, and the church is in the same stage. Watch the natural type the spiritual right through each time.

Now, someday at the judgment bar . . . I know it’s not popular to say it, and if a man is not ordained to say it, you better not say it because you’re impersonating, and then you’ll get in trouble sure enough.

Now, notice, I actually, look like at times, held a woman’s mouth open and poured the medicine in her mouth, and then hold my hands over her mouth, and she will spit it out every time. What if a doctor did that to a patient, then, the patient died because they refused to swallow it, the medicine. At the judgment bar, when all these things like cutting hair and wearing shorts . . .

I’m only building. The hour is close at hand when you’re going to see something happen, when something is going to take place with all this background here, has only been laying a foundation for a short, quick message that will shake the whole nations.

Why, I’ve been picking on women: it’s just been laying up here, for something you could hit around the head with it. Even trying to tell them what’s right. I hold my hand down like this is to where their mouth is; they spit it out. Then, who can blame the doctor?

How are you going to say at the day of the judgment, when the very voices that’s cried out against it, will play the record right back in the face of the people? Then, how are they going to get away from it?

Spit it out between your fingers. Pour some more down and kind of shake their head, walk back, and go back—won’t do it. Yet, you come back again and pour it in again. Then who is to blame? Not the doctor; not the medicine, but the attitude of the person. It’s exactly.

It’ll be a horrible day one of these days when this sinful adulterous generation stands before Almighty God.

As I see my years creeping up, my shoulders stooping, and I know . . . thirty years here in this platform, yes, thirty-three years here on the field; that’s a long life. That’s thirty-three years of service. Only one regret I have, that I didn’t have a hundred and thirty-three years of it. For this will be the last opportunity I’ll ever have, while here mortal to preach the Gospel. God help me to stand true as true can be to that Word, say just as He said.

What made that Methodist woman; how could you ever get it to her? Here she is in that Laodicean Church Age.

Now, we’ll take the Pentecostal woman. She wouldn’t wear shorts, make-up, or cut her hair, but she looks back down at the Methodist: “Say, look at that woman do so and so.” Say, the woman doesn’t wear shorts but she said . . . and herself with bobbed hair. The higher you rise in God, the more sinful the whole thing looks.

Then sometimes in prayer you can imagine when the Holy Spirit takes you up into a sphere then the whole thing looks chaos. Then when you come back down, you seem like you’re—to the people, you’re a rascal, that you’re nothing but an old sarcastic . . . You’re a fool, because you stand as an old crank and always rebuking the people, but if you ever climb into those spheres one time, when you can be in the Presence of God—not through emotion, but through genuine Holy Spirit lifting up—the whole thing is written “Ichabod.” The glory of the Lord has departed from the whole denominational outfit. That’s right. There’s none of them that’s right.

Some day yonder at the judgment bar . . . God will judge them someday. That’s THUS SAITH THE LORD. It hasn’t been a bunch of foolishness or some crazy old man all worked up. It isn’t, because it’s the Word of the Lord” (And Knoweth it Not, August 15, 1965, p. 12:6-14:3, 24:2).

Race Riots in Los Angeles

I don’t think the Holy Spirit is agreeing with Martin Luther King at all on that. It’s got the people all worked up in a bunch of ballyhoo, you see. Just like Hitler did over in Germany, led them right into a death trap, them precious Germans; and they laid by the billions, or millions, piled up there on top of one another. That’s exactly the same thing, and remember I’m on tape, you’ll see that maybe after I’m gone.

That’s exactly what’s going to happen. Them precious people will die down there like flies. Starts a revolutionary, both white and coloured will fight again and die like flies. And what have you got when it’s all over?—a bunch of dead people” (The Third Exodus, June 30, 1963, p. 24:1-2).

“Look at California. Look at the riots. Look at 19 people being killed, racial. Didn’t I tell you here not long ago, that that Martin Luther King would lead his people to a massacre? How many remembers that? It isn’t them coloured people, its them leaders stirring them up. It isn’t integration, segregation, and whatever you want to call it! It’s the Devil! That’s right. Not only to the white, coloured—it’s all of them. It’s the Devil! The mental faculties and reasons of man is broke down. There’s no hopes. It’s beyond hope. The whole thing is a putrified sore” (And Knoweth it Not, August 15, 1965, p. 37:3).

1956—America’s Last Chance

“Now, let me bring something else. I haven’t got it written here, but on magnetic tape (and this is taped, too), in 1956 in Chicago, Illinois, standing at the Lane Tech High School (they were there), I said, “This year is going to be the changing of America.” I’ve just come from overseas, don’t know why I came. Came back, cancelled my meetings in Africa and around, came back.

Billy Graham, something mysterious, he cancelled his. Tommy Osborn canceled his. And we all crossing the United States, in meetings. I said, “America will either receive or reject Christ this year.” Then, I said, “When they elected, in Indiana, a twenty-two-year-old boy to be judge,” the Spirit of the Lord came on me and I said, “They will finally have a President that’ll be one of these crew-cut, play-boy beatnik-type Presidents, a lady’s man.” Now, those are predictions years ago. See where we’re at? It’s later than we think.

So, I think of these Messages on these Seven Church Ages are timely. Let’s be in prayer and study. Now, if you disagree and say, “I think Brother Branham is wrong,” you’ve got a right to do that; but before we do it, before you do, let’s search what the Lord has said with the Scriptures. See if . . . And then the prophecies, what was given that would come to pass, and look to see where they come to pass or not.

Now, it’s on tape and so forth. You know it was spoken years ago, and here it is now coming to pass. Mussolini went down to Ethiopia, didn’t he? Those poor coloured people down there with scythes, blades, and sticks to fight with; and them with modern machinery, he just slaughtered them down, came back crowing about it; but he met his doom. That’s correct.

And . . . the Germans built the Maginot Line, and the American took a hard beating there, but finally, overcome. Exactly right. You veteran brethren know that, at the D-day and so forth, and when they went in. Now, and you find out then that women given the right to vote, and they elected a President that they should not have elected. See? That’s that fall”  (Hybrid Religion, November 13, 1960, p. 7:3-8:2).

“My voice is going around to many nations. It’s a hybrid, this America has become condemned. And what did she do, according to the vision? She elected the wrong person. I don’t know how long it will take it to run out, but it will be someday. THUS SAITH THE LORD! It will.

She’s on her downward move right now. She will never come back again. She’s gone. That’s right. She’s been gone since 1956 when she condemned and turned away God from the great revival hours” (Hybrid Religion, November 13, 1960, p. 30:6-31:2).

America is the Prostitute of the Nations

“This America is the prostitute of the nations. That’s exactly what she is, and she’s going to be worse than ever now. She’s coming to her end! The Bible speaks of her doom, tells how she’s going to be. America: lowdown, rotten, filthy, no good. That’s exactly right; she’s been a great nation. She’s carried the Gospel Message. What makes her the way she is? Because she’s turned down the Gospel Message, and rejected the Truth. She’s horrible. She’s got it coming, don’t worry. I seen it in the vision as THUS SAITH THE LORD! It’s coming. She’s going to pay for her sins.

Back when America was America, she was a great nation. The greatest the world’s ever known since Israel, was America, but she sure has polluted herself now. She’s rejected the Message. She’s took nothing but just . . . Now she’s got herself . . . You can see where she’s at now. Everybody knows that, in the last election shows where her spiritual standing is. Uh-huh. She doesn’t know” (Revelation, Chapter Four, January 8, 1961, p. 661:87-88; Revelation 3:17).

Invasion of the USA

“There’s a sputnik up there. And what would happen? The nation would surrender, of course, that’s the only decent thing the government could do.

Then what happens? Wave after wave, of ship loads of soldiers; wave after wave, of airplanes; would land in this nation. The women would be ravished in the streets. What would you do, it belongs to them! Kicked out of your home: they’ll take it over.

What will happen to you young girls and you young man and all of you at that time? Sin has to be paid for! No matter what nation it is, or who it is, it does it. Individually, or a nation, it’s going to be paid for! And a bunch of brutal, ungodly, whisker-jawed, communistic soldiers would grab your wives and ravish them, your young girls. And you would stand and like it, there’s nothing you can do about it.

What causes that? Because you have listened to such stuff as these television programs on rock-and-roll and sin, and some cold formal preacher not able to interpret the supernatural. The handwriting is on the wall! That’s right! And we are weighed in the balance, and found wanting.

When could that take place? Before daylight in the morning. Who is going to stop it? Try it. The Bible says it will happen [Israel is a type of the United States (Isaiah 13:6-16; Zechariah 14:2)]. But let me tell you, that will never touch the Church of the living God, we’ll be gone by that time!

So, friend, listen. If that thing is so close, and we see the handwriting on the wall, there is nothing can stop this thing from happening. America has been preached to, the supernatural has been done, and continually they wade right over the top of it” (Handwriting on the Wall, March 9, 1957, p. 11:84-91).

Atomic Destruction

“Now, 1914, the world went to a war, and they have never been at peace since—constantly swinging in, swinging in, swinging in, and they’re doing the very same thing yet. And what was they doing, “Holding!” O God, have mercy! Holding that great thing that I saw in the vision (the whole thing become to destruction), holding the atomic, holding the wars that they don’t destroy themselves until the thing comes to destroy it; until Israel returns back and gets herself together, and then the Message will go to Israel and she will be sealed with that seal of the Holy Ghost. See, after the Gentiles is called out; the people for His Name’s sake will be called out, which in this age right here they’re called [Acts 15:14-16]. Then Israel only receives a three-year-and-six-month’s Message.

Daniel said so, said they’ll be, there would, “There was . . . seven years prophesied to them, yet left for salvation for the Jews.” He said, “Messiah, the Prince, which is Christ, will come and prophesy in the midst of that seventy years . . . or seven years, He will be cut off.” Jesus preached three and one half years and was cut off, and the daily sacrifice was taken away which Daniel said. All right.

And then there was a space given then for the Gentiles, and they come down to this age. Then there’s three and a half years left yet for the Jews. If we get over in Revelation 11, we’ll pick up exactly at the end (the Church don’t appear till the 19th chapter of Revelation), but the end of that, Elijah and Moses returns again and preach to the Jews. Two man anointed with that Spirit . . . So they kill them and they lay them in the street called Sodom where our Lord was crucified, “Jerusalem.” And after three days, why, the life (Spirit of Life) came into them and they went up, raised up. And then about a third of the earth was blowed to pieces at that time. They done miracles and signs with the Jews.

Now here’s that Jews that they’re coming to preach to. The world could not blow one another up or kill one another, or destruction come, until those Jews come back down on that place; here sets the Bible saying so, he saw the four Angels. And watch what they got to receive; they’ve got to receive the Holy Ghost just like they did . . .” (Ten Virgins, December 11, 1960, p. 445:111-114; Revelation 7:1-4; 11:1-14).

“Now, we realize that that wasn’t John, ’cause it wasn’t the dreadful Day of the Lord, (was it?), and neither did He burn the earth. So it must’ve meant a preview, or a future coming of Elijah. Is that right? Cause He said, “I’ll send Elijah, and I’m going to burn the whole earth, and I’m going to just clean it off, and you’ll walk out upon their ashes.” That’s the Millennium, we know that. After the atomic bomb shall blow it to pieces, then the earth will straighten up. And there’ll be a great day here on the earth, and the Church will reign with Jesus on the earth for a thousand years. Is that right? “But before that great and dreadful Day of the Lord, when it’s going to be blowed up, I’ll send to you Elijah the prophet.” Is that right? So it did not mean John the Baptist in that state, because the dreadful Day of the Lord wasn’t then, it was two thousand years off. Is that right?” (Laodicean Church Age, December 12, 1960, p. 508:75; Malachi 4:1-4; Matthew 3:12).

The Vision of 1933

“In 1933 when the Lord, when we was having meetings over here where that Church of Christ is standing now, the old Masonic home, the vision of the Lord came to me up here and predicted that, “Germany would rise up and have put that Maginot Line there.” Many of you remember it. “And how they’d be all fortified in there, and the Americans would take a great beating right there at that line. And also said what would take place, and about Roosevelt and them things, how he would run and make that fourth term.” Perfectly, just exactly the way it come to pass. “And also said that cars would keep getting more like an egg, until the last days they’d be just in the shape of an egg.”

And I said, “It will come to pass that those cars will not be run by a steering wheel, it’ll be something another run. It’s them cars they’re bringing out right now, remote control, for safety. That’s correct. You won’t be able to enter into a city then, a twenty-mile zone, you can just go twenty mile. You can’t hit another car, because it’s remote control. See, it’s going like that right now.

And I said, “Remember, in that day, before the end time comes, before the end time come, that a woman . . . Now, you all keep this wrote down. There’ll be a great powerful woman raise up, either be President, or dictator, or some great powerful woman in this United States. And she will sink under the influence of women. Now, you remember, that’s THUS SAITH THE LORD” (Why We are not a Denomination, September 27, 1958. p. 29:136; Early in 1992 The Sydney Morning Herald published an article describing computer-controlled freeways proposed for Los Angeles on which cars would be remotely controlled and driven independently of the occupants. Now, in 2017 driverless articulated trucks are on the roads in Germany and the USA and the major car manufacturers are testing these vehicles on public roads and highways).

“I’d like to read you a prophecy that was given. I got on [tape], and by the way, Mr. Mercier and many of them are going to take some of these old prophecies, and dig them out and revise them a little or bring them up to date, and put them in papers. I’d like to read some things that I’d like for you to . . . This one first. I’d like to read something to you, 1932, listen to this.

“As I was on my way, as I was getting ready to go on my way to church this morning, it came to pass that I fell into a vision. Our services are being held on Meigs Avenue at the old orphans’ home, where Charlie Kurn lives in part of the building.” He lives just across the street, now. “And it come to pass that while I was in this vision, I saw some dreadful things take place. I speak this in the Name of the Lord.”

“The President which now is, President Franklin D. Roosevelt,” now remember, this is twenty-eight years ago, “will cause the whole world to go to war; and the new dictator of Italy, Mussolini, shall make his first invasion toward Ethiopia, and he will take Ethiopia; but that’ll be his last. He shall come to his end.”

“We will be in the war with Germany. Watch Russia! Now, that’s . . . Communism, Nazism, and Fascism. Watch Russia! But that is not the main one to watch.”

“It shall also . . . has been an evil thing done in this country, they have permitted women to vote. This is a woman’s nation, and she will pollute this nation as Eve did Eden.” Now you see why I’m hammering the way I do. I’ve got THUS SAITH THE LORD. “In her voting she will elect the wrong person.”

“The Americans will take a great beating at a place that Germany will build, which will be a great wall built of concrete,” the Maginot Line, eleven years before it was ever built, “but finally they will be victors.”

“Then when these women help elect the wrong person, then I saw a great woman rise up in the United States, well-dressed and beautiful, but cruel in heart. She will either guide or lead this nation to ruination.” Now, I’ve got in parenthesis (perhaps the Catholic Church).”

“Also, science will progress, especially in the mechanical world. Automobiles will continue to get like egg-shape. Finally they will build one that won’t need a steering wheel.” They’ve got it now. “It will be controlled by some other power.”

“Then I saw the United States as one smoldering, burnt-over place. It will be near the end.” Then I’ve got in parenthesis “(I predict that this will take place . . .).” Now remember, that’s what the Lord showed. “(But I predict this will take place before 1977).” Upon this prediction, I base, because of the onrushing slaught that’s coming now, how fast that it was moving, how long it’ll take till this nation meets its place.

Now, look what happened now. President Franklin D. Roosevelt took America to England’s tea party. That’s right. Germany never picked on us; we picked on them. Throwed the whole world into a war; to cause a World War. The Germans built the Maginot Line, which there . . . any veteran here knows what she took there at the Maginot Line.

Women, given the right to vote, elected President-elect Kennedy, 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 to explode her. There’s seven things predicted, and five of them have already happened. So, you can judge yourself how far away we are. We’re near the end. If those five things happened, these other two things are bound to happen. It’s just got to happen.

I do not think that Mr. Kennedy will have much effect now, because he will make a wonderful president in order to bring in the others to get a scene set just like they have in England, like they did in Mexico, like they did everywhere else like that. And the American people, so unstable, not spiritually; they’re smart, but too smart for their own good. Intelligence swings backward sometimes and backfires. So they . . . I’m preaching on that this morning, in a little bit.

So we find out we’re right on the verge. The reason I said this, that’s the reason I pressed that the other day so hard the way I did, but it was that that did it. That’s right. Women’s vote that put . . .

Did you notice the rallies on the television? Nixon to be pretty near all man. All of them wanted to kiss Kennedy, the women, jumping straddle the cars and everything like that, jumping up and down” (End-Time Seed Sign, March 19, 1960, p. 5:1-6:7).

The Laodicean Age

Mussolini and his defacto assassinated and lynched

“The Laodicean Age began around the turn of the Twentieth Century, perhaps 1906. How long will it last? As a servant of God who has had multitudes of visions, of which NONE has ever failed, let me predict (I did not say prophesy, but predict) that this age will end around 1977. If you will pardon a personal note here, I base this prediction on seven major continuous visions that came to me one Sunday morning in June, 1933. The Lord Jesus spoke to me and said that the coming of the Lord was drawing nigh, but that before He came, seven major events would transpire. I wrote them all down and that morning I gave forth the revelation of the Lord. The first vision was that Mussolini would invade Ethiopia and that nation would “fall at his steps”. That vision surely did cause some repercussions, and some were very angry when I said it and would not believe it. But it happened that way. He just walked in there with his modern arms and took over. The natives didn’t have a chance. But the vision also said that Mussolini would come to a horrible end with his own people turning on him. That came to pass just exactly as it was said.

The next vision foretold that an Austrian by the name of Adolph Hitler would rise up as dictator over Germany, and that he would draw the world into war. It showed the Siegfried line and how our troops would have a terrible time to overcome it. Then it showed that Hitler would come to a mysterious end.

The third vision was in the realm of world politics for it showed me that there would be three great ISMS, Fascism, Nazism, Communism, but that the first two would be swallowed up into the third. The voice admonished, “WATCH RUSSIA, WATCH RUSSIA. Keep your eye on the King of the North.”

The fourth vision showed the great advances in science that would come after the Second World War. It was headed up in the vision of a plastic bubble-topped car that was running down beautiful highways under remote control so that people appeared seated in this car without a steering wheel and they were playing some sort of a game to amuse themselves.

The fifth vision had to do with the moral problem of our age, centering mostly around women. God showed me that women began to be out of their place with the granting of the vote. Then they cut off their hair, which signified that they were no longer under the authority of a man but insisted on either equal rights, or in most cases, more than equal rights. She adopted men’s clothing and went into a state of undress, until the last picture I saw was a woman naked except for a little fig leaf type apron. With this vision I saw the terrible perversion and moral plight of the whole world.

Then in the sixth vision there arose up in America a most beautiful, but cruel woman. She held the people in her complete power. I believed that this was the rise of the Roman Catholic Church, though I knew it could possibly be a vision of some woman rising in great power in America due to a popular vote by women.

The last and seventh vision was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America.

Based on these seven visions, along with the rapid changes which have swept the world in the last fifty years, I PREDICT (I do not prophesy) that these visions will have all come to pass by 1977. And though many may feel that this is an irresponsible statement in view of the fact that Jesus said that ‘no man knoweth the day nor the hour.’ I still maintain this prediction after thirty years because, Jesus did NOT say no man could know the year, month or week in which His coming was to be completed. So I repeat, I sincerely believe and maintain as a private student of the Word, along with divine inspiration that 1977 ought to terminate the world systems and usher in the millennium.

Now let me say this. Can anyone prove any of those visions wrong? Were they not all fulfilled? Yes, each one has been fulfilled, or is in the process right now. Mussolini invaded Ethiopia successfully, then fell and lost it all. Hitler started a war he could not finish and died mysteriously. Communism took over both the other two ISMS. The plastic bubble car has been built and is awaiting only a better network of roads. Women are all but naked, and are even now wearing topless bathing suits. And just the other day I saw in a magazine the very dress that I saw in my vision (if you can call it a dress). It was a plastic transparent type of cloth with three darkened spots that covered both breasts in a small area, and then there was a dark place like a small apron below. The Catholic Church is on the rise. We have had one Catholic president and will no doubt have another. What is left? Nothing except Hebrews 12:26. “Whose voice then shook the earth: but now He hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.” Once more God will shake the earth and with it shake everything loose that can be shaken. Then He will renovate it. Just last March, 1964, that Good Friday earthquake of Alaska shook the whole world though it did not unbalance it. But God was warning by a world tremor what He will soon do on a greater scale. He is going to blast and rock this sin-cursed world, my brother, my sister, and there is only one place that can stand that shock, and that is in the fold of the Lord Jesus. And I would beseech you while God’s mercy is still available to you, that you give your whole life, unreservedly to Jesus Christ, who as the faithful Shepherd will save you and care for you and present you faultless in glory with exceeding great joy” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 321:2 – 322:4).

The Last Sign to the Gentile Church

“THUS SAITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD that’s on me, this is the last sign to the Gentile Church before the Rapture. THUS SAITH THE WORD OF GOD! THUS SAITH THE HOLY SPIRIT that speaks, that knows the secret of the heart. THUS SAITH THE LORD, you are receiving your last call. Call me fanatic if you wish to, and blaspheme the Holy Ghost. Come now if you’re not ready to meet Him in the Rapture. I challenge, I ask, I persuade, I beg, come now”! (Wasn’t so from the Beginning, April 11, 1961; Luke 17:30; Genesis 18; Hebrews 4:12).

No Judging of Prophets

“There’s a difference between prophecy and a prophet. Prophecy goes from one to another, but a prophet is born from the cradle a prophet. They have THUS SAITH THE LORD! No judging of them. You don’t see them before Isaiah, or Jeremiah, any of them prophets, because they had THUS SAITH THE LORD! But a spirit of prophecy amongst the people; you have to watch that, ’cause Satan will slip in there. See? Now, but it must be judged” (Questions and Answers on the Holy Ghost, December 19, 1959, p. 440:129; Numbers 12:6; Deuteronomy 13:1-5; 18:15-22; Jeremiah 1:5; Romans 11:29; I Corinthians 14:26-33).

Satan hates ‘THUS SAITH THE LORD’ because it exposes Him

“Do you notice how horrible it is for Satan when he thinks he’s going to be exposed? Watch in one of the servic;, watch the action of the people. You watch that on my meeting. Just before Satan’s going to be exposed over a certain person, you can see their face changing. You see, they don’t know what to think. All at once, the Holy Spirit coming down and exposes that Devil. Oh! He hates that kind of a meeting. That’s the reason we’ve had such a battle, because the Word of God exposes the Devil. See, it tells what he is.

Like you say, “This woman setting here,” under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, say, “her name is Miss Jones. She come from So-and-so.” What does that do? It picks up her spirit, brings it up to a place.

“How do you know me? That man doesn’t know me, so it must be some spirit. What kind of a spirit is it?”

“It’s the Spirit of God.”

“How? What’s the matter with me?”

“You have tuberculosis, cancer,” whatever it is, “but THUS SAITH THE LORD. . .” “Oh!” Oh, how Satan hates that! Because it exposes him.

Now, the carnal mind looks on, says, “Mind reading, mental telepathy.” They don’t know. It’s foolish to them.

But to those who know what it is, oh, what a blessing! What is it? A revelation. A revelation of who? Of the man on the pulpit? Of Jesus Christ in this last church age! Revealing Himself like He promised that He would do. It’s a Revelation” (The Revelation of Jesus Christ, December 4, 1960, p. 26:121-129; Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Luke 17:30; Hebrews 4:12; Genesis 18; Revelation 10:7).

The Prophets acted as God

“They was brought before the priests, they wasn’t ashamed, because they had directly THUS SAITH THE LORD! If you notice, the prophet in one sense of the Word in the Old Testament, when he said THUS SAITH THE LORD, now, watch him, he goes right into the phrase of taking the place of God. You notice, when he placed out before him THUS SAITH THE LORD, he fell right into God, and he acted as God, then he gave his Message, which was God speaking through him, “THUS SAITH THE LORD!”

I think of the prophets of old when they come with that Message and it embarrassed the kings, and it made the people feel uncomfortable—the priest even. They would feel uncomfortable, because they were supposed to be leaders, religious man; and when they—the Word came forth in that manner it exposed them, and they felt embarrassed or ashamed” (Ashamed, July 11, 1965, p. 18:127-129).

Hold on to What I say to be the Truth

“I know that there’s a few people in the world holds on to what I say to be the Truth. To stand here and say, “THUS SAITH THE LORD, I’m going to Arizona, there I’ll meet seven Angels in a cluster,” well, there’s a group of man standing there to see it happen.

The other night, saying it, “Los Angeles would fall into the ocean.” But when you have met God, and the God who doesn’t fail, the God who does exactly what He said He would do, He’s always done it; you’re not ashamed of it then. You don’t have to walk back and be embarrassed about it; you can tell the whole world. If a man meets God, talks to Him, and the reality of God becomes his in his heart, he’s not ashamed of it” (Ashamed, July 11, 1965, p. 25:176).

Let’s Consult the Prophet

“What can be done? What is to be done? Let’s consult the prophet, the Bible, where we cannot add to or take from it. If we do, God takes us from the Book of Life.

The Bible said in Malachi 4 what would happen today, Revelation 10, how the Seven Seals would be open and reveal all these mysteries that’s been hid through these reformers. He said how it would be done. It’s in the Bible, THUS SAITH THE LORD. God has completely, perfectly identified that and a-vindicated it to be the Truth by signs, wonders in the heavens and the skies, and everything else for thirty-three years.

You think they’ll listen to it? No, they’re dead. They’ve put their hand into something that’s killed the whole thing. No, it won’t, it won’t never no more” (Trying to do God a Service without the Will of God, July 18, 1965, p. 25:147-147b).

It’ll Repeat Again in the Last Days

“Jannes and Jambres walked out before Moses, and publicly before the people, and performed every miracle that Moses could do. They will deceive the very elected if it’s possible. Is that right? Performed the same thing that Moses did. You get it? Now remember, it’s THUS SAITH THE SCRIPTURE that it’ll repeat again in the last days. What was the difference between Moses and Jambres?

Moses said, “Let blood come in the water!”

And these false prophets said, “Sure, we put blood in the water too.” And it happened.

So Moses said, “Let there come fleas!” What was he getting it? Straight from God! See? And what did he do? He said, “Well sure, we can bring fleas too.” And they did it. Any miracle that Moses could do, they could do too! Remember, keep that in mind, we’re coming to it after while. They can do anything the rest of them can do, but they can’t stay with the Word! They can’t stay with the Word.

Now notice. They did it! But Moses the true sent prophet from God, commissioned by God, he never fussed with them, said, “Here, you can’t do that! You can’t . . .” He just let them alone, just let them go on. They’re organizational prophets, but go ahead. Moses just went right on, listened to God. Whatever God said, “Now, you do this,” Moses went and done it. He done a new thing. When they did, each one of them had a sensation or something; here they come. They did it too, just exactly like Moses did.

Now notice! These fellows appeared . . . Oh, you people, don’t you miss this! These impostors, impersonators, appeared after the true one had went first! They come to impersonate. See, they have to! The Devil cannot create anything; he just is a perverter of the original. And what is sin? Its righteousness perverted. What is adultery? The right act perverted. What is a lie? Is the truth misrepresented. A perversion. Look at Hananiah, a perversion of the original Word. Look at Balaam, a perversion of the original Word. Look at Zedekiah, the perversion of the original Word. And the Bible said that these guys would come out after the—to pervert the original Word, vindicated and proved to be the Truth!

“Do the work of an evangelist (in that corner yonder); make full proof of your ministry, for the time will come when they’ll not endure sound doctrine, but after their own lust shall heap for themselves teachers, having itching ears.” They’d go ahead and do anything you want to; and it’s all right, “We got the same signs and wonders.” “And shall be turned from the Truth and be brought into fables”—dogmas!

Oh, the awareness of the Holy Spirit, the awe that strikes a man’s soul when he stops to think how real and plain it’s right before us. Dig up that cornerstone out here and read a piece of paper that’s put in there thirty-three years ago. See what He said over yonder on—on Seventh Street that morning when this cornerstone was laid. Now, watch it. Watch down here on the river when the Angel of the Lord came down in a form of a Pillar of Fire, hundreds of the churches, or peoples of the church, standing around on the bank, what He said; see if it’s come to pass. See what’s happened. It’s so hard. I know it looks hard, brethren out there, but it’s . . . The Bible said . . . Jesus said Himself it would deceive the very elected if it was possible. No way around it, they’ll never be able to see it. If it was possible, the very elected would be deceived by it. Notice, these fellows appeared after God’s true anointed was sent, by His true prophet Moses. And when Moses would do anything, they would impersonate it.

Now, brother, sister, this is my own church. I got a right to preach what I want to as long as it’s out of God’s Word. And I ain’t condemning you people, but let’s just search that for the time and the hour that we’re now living!

Greetings to Brother Ruddell, to Junior Jackson and them out here, our brother churches, I forgot them a while ago. I think they’re hooked in this morning too because of no—no room in the church.

Just think of it now, just for a minute. They did the same miracles that Moses did. Moses brought fleas, they impersonated and brought fleas. See God said, “The day you eat thereof, that day you die.”

Satan come around and said, “Surely, you’ll not die; you’ll just be wiser. You’ll have a better organization, a better . . . You know. You know, everything would be better for you, have more Light.” See, just a perversion! And remember, THUS SAITH THE LORD, according to II Timothy 3:18, that in the last days that this Jannes and Jambres would be on the earth. Now, I want you to notice there’s two of them. See? Impersonators. [“As it was in the days of Lot”].

Now, we’re going to get back to Sodom after while and three’s, find them three Angels that came down and see the impersonation and so forth. See? See which is right and wrong. See, see?

Notice! They did the same miracles. But notice, they impersonated after the true Word had been anointed by the true one that God had sent—followed secondarily. I wonder if we could think for a minute. Taking the people by the hand not long ago, about twenty years ago, and a sign showed. Boy, there was more signs all over . . . ? . . . And everybody, one’s got it in his right hand; one’s got it in his left hand; the other one smells it. See? All kinds of. . . And I wonder . . . God won’t let me tell you at this time what was really the truth, but one day you’re going to find out. That was just to make their folly manifested. That wasn’t right at the beginning. I’ll tell you one day if the Lord permits.

Notice, they did the same miracles, but they didn’t . . . notice they didn’t do it till after the original Word went forth first. That’s the way Satan done in the Garden of Eden; that’s the way he done all the time. Who prophesied first? Moses. Who come on the scene first, Moses or Balaam? Moses. Who come on the scene first, Jeremiah or Hananiah? You see what I mean?

Notice! They copied. Carnal impersonators, sincere, thinking they were doing God a service as David did (last week), but carnal impersonations. I’m just waiting a minute. I want you to think between these places. If I don’t say it, surely the Holy Spirit will reveal it to—especially to the Elected.

Pharaoh’s denomination says, “We have man that can do that same thing.” And they did it. See? Why did Pharaoh do this? Why did God permit it? Why would God send a true, anointed prophet down there to perform a sign before Pharaoh, and then let a denominational copy come around and copy it before the people? Why would He let an impersonator rise up to do it and do the same thing exactly the genuine Spirit of God done? See, the Scripture must be fulfilled.

Notice! He did this so that He would harden the heart of Pharaoh and the Egyptians. To prove that Moses wasn’t the only one that had the Word, they could do everything just the same as Moses could do. And why did God let this thing happen in the last days? So the same thing as the lying spirit said to Zedekiah. “How we going to get Ahab out there to make these things come to pass?” How is He going to get these people trusting in their churches to get out here to let this thing come to pass that He predicted that—in this Laodicean Church age? “Because thou saith thou art rich and have need of nothing.” “I set as a queen—have need of nothing. . .”

“Knowest thou not that you’re miserable, wretched, blind? And I counsel to come buy of Me,” He said, “oil and gold.” Why did He do it? Why did He let this impersonation rise up in this last days when these things are coming to pass by the true Word of God, and let impersonators come up and do the same thing and deny the true Word of God? He did it, for Moses—and Pharaoh did it against Moses and those—Jannes and Jambres did it against Moses. . . And the Bible said that it’ll repeat again in the last days. Here we are! Now, if that ain’t Scripture fulfilled, where is it at?

Did Moses fuss at them and say, “Here, here, you can’t do that. I’m the only one’s been ordained to do that. Here, you stop that right now!” He just let them go, let them go on. Remember, the Bible said, “As their folly was made manifest, so will these in the last day be made manifest,” when the Bride is raptured and taken into the sky.

Notice! Moses, the true, manifested Word, never said nothing, just let it go. But He did that so He could harden the heart of Pharaoh, deceive Pharaoh. He did that very same thing so He could deceive Ahab. And that one little guy standing there by himself, little Micaiah, telling them THUS SAITH THE LORD. Here stood another one, anointed, “Thus saith the Lord,” and contrary one to another.

We stand today with THUS SAITH THE LORD that the water baptism in the last days is to be in the Name of Jesus Christ, and another man stand and perform miracles and a trinitarian! Show me the word trinity in the Bible! Show me where there’s three gods! Show me where there’s such things as that! It’s not in the Word of God. There’s no such a thing as anybody ever baptized in the name of Father, Son, Holy Ghost, using those titles. All these things, “Oh, it’s all right, sisters, that’s all right, just go have long—your short hair. That’s all right, you don’t have to do this, that, or the other. Oh, that’s nonsense, some old fogey.” But the Bible said, and He promised in the last days He would send the Spirit of Elijah, and would call the people, the children of God, back to the original faith like it was in the beginning of the Word. That Word was confirmed the Son of man in the last days, the same as it was at Sodom—yesterday, today, and forever. He promised to do it. It’s God’s promise; it’s THUS SAITH THE LORD.

Notice! They did the same thing, just as Moses did, until God got enough of it. Now remember, it’s THUS SAITH THE LORD, it’ll come to pass in this day. Now, search over the world; take every cult, take every clan, take every man, take every church. . . I charge you in Christ’s Name to do this, you preachers. I charge you to read the newspapers or take consideration anywhere you want to go, and see if it isn’t on the earth right now. Then Matthew 24:24 is exactly right. False anointed ones will rise in the last days and will be false prophets, and shall deceive many. Watch it in the types now as it comes now. See? Shall deceive many. Prophets plural, christs, anointed, plural. Many different ones. One’s a Methodist, anointed Baptists, and the Pentecostal, and so forth. See? But there’s one genuine Christ Spirit, and that’s the Word made flesh as He promised to do it” (The Anointed Ones at the End Time, July 25, 1965, p. 30:136-156).

World is going Insane

“Look at all the televisions and things getting these fictitious things in order. It’ll come a time, I predict, that people will be completely, totally insane, the world will be. The Bible speaks of such hideous sights as they show in movies today of some prehistoric creature, that’s lived in the earth for so many thousands and millions of years, hatch and come forth to some . . . That’s just a minor thing, to what’s going to happen. When hell is opened and the Devil comes out with all of his mysterious things, of locust with hair like women, and teeth like lions. Why, the world will be completely, totally insane. It’s not but just about one degree from it now” (God’s Provided Place of Worship, April 4, 1965, p. 24:191; Revelation 9:1-11).

You’ll find out One of these Days

“So this bishop walked up and said, “You’ll never have fellowship no more!” and smacked him in the face; said, “You know that I’m a vindicated man. My church made me the head of it, this thing. The popular vote of God’s people made me this. My organization made me this. And God gave us this land, and He intends for it to belong to us! And I have THUS SAITH THE LORD.” He smacked him and said, “Which way did the Spirit of God go when it left me?”

Micaiah said, “You’ll find out one of these days when California’s beneath the sea out yonder,” a lot of these things. See? “You’ll see which a-way it went when you’re setting in the inner prisons” (The Anointed Ones at the End Time, July 25, 1965, p. 21:93-94).

Los Angeles will go beneath the Ocean

“Church member, if your church isn’t like that can measure up to God’s qualification of His Word, get out of it, and get into Christ. That’s solemn warning. 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 would have been standing till this day.” And Sodom and Gomorrah lays at the bottom of the Dead Sea, and Capernaum is in the bottom of the sea.

Thou city, who claims to be the city of the Angels, who has 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 will be laying in the bottom of this sea! Your great honeycomb under you right now. The wrath of God is belching right beneath you. How much longer He will 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 will 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 is time to flee and come into Christ. Let us pray.

Dear God, when in my spirit is shaking, my heart is dropping teardrops of warning, grant, O God, that man and women will not think of what I’ve said as a joke, and the church people will not think of it as something that was prejudice or against them. May they see, Lord, it’s in love. Thou barest me record, Almighty God, that up and down this coast I went, year after year, proclaiming Your Word. Bear me record, O God, if it would happen tonight, I’ve told the Truth. Thou knowest this vision of the Bride is the Truth. I’ve took Your Name by it, Lord, and said it was THUS SAITH THE LORD, and I feel that I’m conscious, Lord, of what I’m doing.

So I pray Thee, Lord, in Jesus’ Name, let people shake themselves tonight and flee from the wrath that is to come, for Ichabod is wrote over the doors and over the nation. A black check mark is come across it, the Spirit of God is grieved away from it, and they’re weighed in the balance and found wanting. The feast of King Nebuchadnezzar has repeated again with drunken parties and half-dressed women calling themselves Christians. O God of Heaven, have mercy upon a sinful world and a sinful people, Lord, as we are tonight. God, I’m trying to stand in the breach and ask for divine mercy that You will speak into this crowd tonight and call Your Bride to attention, Lord, to march not by the sign of any creed, but by the sound of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Grant it, O God. Let it be known this night, that Thou art God, and Thy Word is Truth. While solemnly in the face of this people, we call them to attention of Thy Word. In the Name of Jesus Christ, I pray for them, Lord.

They have seen You beyond any shadow of a doubt move across the crowds and tell them what is in their heart. And Thou knowest, Lord that right now what is going on. Thou knowest that to be Truth, O God. And I pray Thee in Jesus’ Name, let the Holy Spirit intercede again, Lord, and pull from this audience, Lord, those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Grant it, O God, I pray it with all my heart.

These people, naturally, Lord, would give me the last penny they had to support the Message. They would do anything that they could, but, O God, when it comes to coping with it and coming into it, I pray, God, that this will be the night that You will reward them and pour down Your Holy Spirit upon this convention. And may there not be a frolic, or jumping around; but a weeping, and a crying, and a repenting, holding on to the horns of the altar while we see judgment roaring beneath us tonight! Grant it, God. I pray as sincerely as I know how, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

My brother, sister, I don’t know what more to say. If I have found grace in your sight, by the Power of God, if you believe me to be His prophet. This is the first time in public I’ve ever said that, but I feel a strange warning of some sort. I’m not prone to this, you know I’m not. I don’t act like this. I hesitated to speak that Message and say those things. I run sideways and everything else to keep from doing it, but it has been said, and it will stand at the day of the judgment as a witness that I’ve told the Truth. That is THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD. O Pentecost, run for your life! Flee to the horns of the altar and cry out before it is too late, for the hour will come when you can cry and it will do no good, for Esau sought to find the place of his birthright, and couldn’t find it. I commit you, O California, O Convention of the Full Gospel Business Man, who I love, who I’ve left and strung to with all my heart, I commit you to Jesus Christ tonight. Flee to Him! Don’t let the Devil ever cool you off from this. Stay right with it until you are every one filled with the Holy Ghost insomuch that it will make you come to this Word, that will make you women straighten up, that will make you man straighten up. If you say you’ve got the Holy Ghost and won’t cope with the Word, it is another spirit in you. God’s Spirit is on His Word. The Messianic, the anointed Word. The Bride must be a “Messiah-ette,” the anointed Word.

Let us stand to our feet, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. If you never hear my voice again. . . If God willing, I’m sailing to Africa in a few hours; I may never return. I don’t know. But I tell you with all my heart, I’ve told you the Truth. I haven’t shunned to declare to you everything that God has told me to say, and I’ve said it in the Name of the Lord.

It is a solemn moment. I don’t know how to express it. I’ve tried to leave the pulpit three or four times, and I can’t do it. This is a solemn hour. Don’t you never forget it! This is a time that maybe God may be making His last call. I don’t . . . He will make His last call someday. When? I don’t know. But I’m telling you, according to that vision, it looks like that that Bride is about finished! Look at the nominal churches coming in. When the sleeping virgin come for oil, she failed to get it. The Bride went in. The Rapture went up. While they went to buy oil, the Bridegroom come. Are you asleep? Wake up, quickly come to yourself, and let us pray, each one, like we were dying at this minute, in the Name of the Lord. Let’s each one pray in your own way.

God Almighty, have mercy upon us, Lord. Have mercy on me. Have mercy upon us all. What good does it do, no matter what we do, if we fail in these things. I stand and ask for mercy. O God, before this great city sinks beneath the sea and judgments of God sweep this coast, I pray, God, that You will call Your Bride. I commit them to You now, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen” (Choosing a Bride, April 29, 1965, p. 35:3-38:1).

pyramid-shaped rock from Sunset Mountain“I remember just my last message in California, where I thought I’d never go back again, when I predicted Los Angeles will go beneath the ocean. And, THUS SAITH THE LORD, it will! She’s done; she’s washed; she’s finished. What hour? I don’t know when. But it will be sunk right after that the earthquakes begin to jerk and bound.

You remember, many of you men standing right there, that rock that day when that Angel came down there and that Light and Fire falling from the Heaven around the rock when we was standing there, rocks flinging out of the mountain, and falling across there. And she blasted three times, hard. I said, “Judgment will strike the West Coast.” Two days after that, Alaska almost sunk.

Remember, that same God that said that, said Los Angeles is doomed. And she’s finished. I don’t know when, I can’t tell you.

I didn’t know I said that. But this brother here, I believe it was. . . No, one of the Mosleys, I believe, had me out on the street out there. I don’t know what it was till I looked back. And I looked back in the Scripture, and Jesus said, “Capernaum, Capernaum, how oft . . . You that’s exalted yourself (rather) up into Heaven shall be brought down into hell, for if the mighty works had been done in you that’d been done in Sodom, it would’ve stood today.” And about a hundred and fifty years from there—Sodom had already in the earth, then Capernaum is in the water too today.

And that same Spirit of God that said all these things and done all these things, it said there, “O city, Capernaum, who called yourself by the name of the angels, Los Angeles. How you’ve exalted yourself into Heaven!” The very root and seat of Satan. See? “You’ve exalted yourself.”

Preachers, it’s a graveyard for them. Good men go there and die like rats. What havoc!

“You that call yourself by the name of the angels, if the mighty works had been done in Sodom that’d been done in you, it’d stood today. But your hour’s come.” You watch and see. If it ain’t, I’m a false prophet. See? There she is; she’s laying there” (The Rapture, December 4, 1965, p. 39:191-197; Isaiah 24; Zechariah 14:1-9; Matthew 27:50-53; Revelation 6:12-17; 11:14-18; 16:15-18; 18:21-23). nl959.htm

This issue speaks of corruption in high places, especially in the Jewish-ruled United States and apostate Western nations “as it was in the ‘multicultural’ days of Noah,” and in the sodomite “days of Lot.” In Revelation 13:13-14 Jesus said, “The United States performed great wonders, causing nuclear fire to come down from heaven on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the sight of men. And deceived carnal non-elect and unregenerate earth-bound men by means of those miracles the United States was granted authority to do in the sight of the Judaeo-Roman church which sanctions all to believe; saying to them, that they should make a Protestant image to Rome by uniting the churches with the military power of the state”.

Towards reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of Global Public Authority

Papal Keys

January 10, 2017 — This document published by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace illustrates how Daniel 9:27 will be fulfilled. “[Incarnate by Satan] Rome’s prince will confirm a covenant already agreed with the self-styled Jews for one week [of years]: and in the midst of the week Rome will cease the sacrifice and the oblation [Jewry will re-establish when access to Temple Mount is restored after the Dome of the Rock is demolished by an earthquake cleaving the Mount of Olives], and for the overspreading of abominations [of Judaeo-Roman worship in a third temple to be built] he will make it desolate, even until the consummation of life, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate” (Revelation 17:11 – 18:20;

In the past, the Vatican’s widespread influence has seldom been seen in plain view and even when it has been more apparent, it was never as prime instigator, but rather in the form of a third party statement of support or the expression of its opinion. As a result, few commentators are aware or even suspect the significant role that the church plays or has played in world affairs, but when one considers her public statements in continuity, both historically and in more modern times, and then compares the views expressed to what subsequently has taken place, the church’s real goals and the extent of its influence upon global trends and key events becomes clear. This particularly can be seen in the extent to which [Judaeo-]Jesuit trained or affiliated people are now overrepresented in key decision making roles around the world, US politics being a case in point.

Donald Trump: secret Jesuit agent for Commander-in-Chief?
What Tim Kaine, Donald Trump and Pope Francis have in Common.
Trump, Clinton, My Jesuit Illuminati Overlords and the Iowa Caucus.

These reports on what took place at the Forum are revealing: Prophecy Fulfilment, The Business of Humanity, and Fortune + Time Global Forum—Working Group Solutions. Terminology such as ‘Global Citizen’ highlighted in the first of the two videos is clearly intent on popularising the idea of World Government where we all become ‘wandering Jews.’ I conclude that the world’s major business leaders have “bought in” to the Jesuit Pope’s agenda and in terms of where we are along the prophetic timeline to the Coming of the Lord for His Bride, I think that these developments and those such as touched on in the next paragraph are among the most prophetically significant events of 2016.

Privacy is becoming a scarce commodity and widespread media censorship is all but a total reality, with President Obama having signed the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Actinto law, effectively putting all speech under federal control. Add to this the recent UN resolution against Israeli settlements prophesied by Zechariah and Jesus Christ, and Chabad-associated Rav David Touitou (a keen scholar of Isaiah 34 and 63) who says the Muslim invasion of Europe is ‘excellent news’ because “Edom” (Christianity) must be destroyed before “Messiah” [Lubavitcher Rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneerson? (1902 – 1994)] can “return.” It is clear we are a long way down the road towards complete societal control and the Mark of the Beast.

2017 will likely see more of the same until such time as the elite decide that they have all the needed legislation in place to control those they expect will revolt against World Government, an event that in all probability will be triggered by the deliberate collapsing of the world economy. The rise in interest rates in the US that are signalled to continue this year and the tightening of credit lines that are now taking place are phenomena that have preceded all recent financial crashes. Their reappearance together is a strong indication that we are in the final stages of the preparation for World Government.

In an age of disruption and turmoil, Pope Francis calls on the “noble vocation” of business to help create a more inclusive and humane economy. Even as free markets have lifted billions out of poverty—with business “stimulating and developing the immense resources of human intelligence”—too many have been left behind. This Forum offered a historic opportunity for Fortune 500 and Time 100 leaders to engage with the Pope to forge a new social compact for the 21st century . . . (; Revelation 18:1-20).

I believe Rome’s preparations to collapse the global economy will greatly amplify the punishment for evil generated by the unprecedented concussion of nature at the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial will collapse the global economy and monetary system, marking the end of the Christian dispensation (Matthew 24:29; Revelation 6:12-17; 16:17-21). As typed in Genesis 32 and 33 and foretold by Daniel and Jesus, “the church system of the Roman Catholic and the Protestant in coming together will control the whole wealth of the world system and force the whole earth into its religious trap, or will kill them, by refusing them the privilege of buying and selling whereby they would make a living. This will be accomplished simply, for the harlot’s daughters are all but gone back to her. In the meantime, Rome has acquired nearly all the supplies of gold. The Jews have the bonds and all the paper. At the right time, the harlot will destroy the present day money system by calling in all the paper, and demanding gold. With no gold, the system falls. The Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance, and the harlot church will take over the whole world” (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 314:1).

Brother Branham said, “And what is Christ? The Word. He said, “If ye abide in Me, My Word in you, then ask what you will, it’ll be done,” because the Word there, just needs the Light; and the Light makes it live . . . the third pull has now been vindicated . . . But it will not be used in a great way, until this Council (WCC) begins to tighten up . . . when the squeeze comes down, then you’ll see what you have seen temporarily, be manifested in the fullness of its power . . . this will be the thing that will start the rapturing faith for the going away . . .

There is coming a time . . . to where this nation is going to exercise all the power that the beast had before (which was pagan Rome, when it become papal Rome. See?) that this nation will do that. Revelations 13 plainly explains it. The lamb came up out of the earth. The other beast came up out of water, thickness and multitudes of people. This lamb came up where there was no people.

A lamb represents religion—the Lamb of God. And remember, it spoke like a lamb; it was a lamb, and then after while it received power and spoke like a dragon, and exercised all the power the dragon had before him; and the dragon is Rome always. So don’t you see, Roman denomination, a marked Protestant denomination, an image unto the beast, making a power that’ll force all Protestants like a union . . . persons like ourselves, we’re going to be cut out of all that altogether. That’s exactly, because they won’t be able to do it. It’s tightening; and then when that time comes, and the press comes to a place to where you’re pressed out, then watch (what I am fixing to tell you in a few minutes) watch the third pull then. It’ll be absolutely to the total lost, but it will be for the Bride and the church” (Look Away to Jesus, p. 5:37-49).

“Let me say this, if you count me a fanatic from this night on. That very same thing that I’m speaking of will be done. There’ll be a power put into the Church, and now is coming in, that the Holy Spirit will so anoint the people, till they’ll speak the Word and it’ll create itself right there. We haven’t seen powers like’s coming into the Church now. I know it for a fact.”

“Say unto this mountain be moved. Don’t doubt in your heart, but believe that what you’ve said shall come to pass, you can have what you have said.” The placing of the Church in position, where the fulness of the power of the Holy Ghost comes into the Church. Then critics’ mouths will be shut. It’ll be a short time. Jesus come right off the mountain, went straight to Calvary. Notice, it won’t last long, but it’ll be here” (Hear Ye Him, #60-0313).

Soft Coup Collapses – CIA Bluff, Russia did not Hack, Blackmail Revealed

January 9, 2017 — Aided by enormous restraint on the part of Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, the soft coup in the USA has collapsed. Not only has the US Intelligence Community (US IC) lost all semblance of credibility with incoming President Donald Trump, but the blackmail by the CIA of Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham has been revealed by investigative journalist Wayne Madsen.

Credit for the defeat of the soft coup has been earned by two persons and one group. Donald Trump earns the most credit—bringing to the matter his deep business experience and common sense, he understood that the narrative against Russia was exaggerated, fabricated, and out of context. With that foundation he was willing to listen to the second person, Michael Flynn, whose deep personal experience in the nether world of black special operations and green clandestine and covert action operations informs him in a manner few can claim.

The group has many members, but three stand out. William Binney, the senior executive . . . NSA capability that has been used against US politicians and also to monitor the activity of all cyber-spies, not only Russia, was the first to reveal that the leaks were coming from insiders. Ray McGovern, a retired CIA analyst and founder of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) has been a respected voice challenging the false assertions by the CIA against Russia. Finally Steve Pieczenik must be recognized. A former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State who was instrumental in certifying the death of Bin Laden in 2001 and denouncing the multiple false Bin Ladens created by CIA thereafter (including the final patsy provided by Pakistan to enable a theatrical rescue that killed many US special operators for no reason other than to give Barack Obama an edge toward re-election) . . .

The War against Truth, when the Lie becomes Truth. Obama preparing War against Russia?

January 7, 2017 — While the alleged hacking is casually tagged as an “An Act of War” Ships began unloading US tanks, self-propelled howitzers and hundreds of other fighting vehicles Friday in the northern German port of Bremerhaven, to be moved into Eastern Europe to bolster NATO’s deterrence against possible Russian aggression.

The US also plans to move in a combat aviation brigade … from Fort Bliss, Texas. They’ll be headquartered in Germany with some aircraft positioned in Latvia, Romania and Poland . . . Britain [is] sending fighter jets to the Black Sea area, while a battalion of troops, tanks and light armour will deploy in Estonia in the spring, backed by French and Danish troops. Germany also plans to send troops and tanks to Lithuania.

Albania, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Romania and Slovenia are also playing roles in what NATO has dubbed its Enhanced Forward Presence. The US plans to relocate a Stryker unit from Germany to Poland as part of that group against the American Homeland, “Operation Atlantic Resolve” (involving a massive deployment of troops and military hardware on Russia’s border) is categorized as an “Act of Self Defense”.

When war becomes peace, the world is turned upside down. Conceptualization is no longer possible. Insanity prevails. The institutions of government are criminalized.

The Western media and politicians, in chorus, obfuscate the unspoken truth, namely that the US-NATO led war destroys humanity. When the lie becomes the truth there is no turning backwards.

When war is upheld as a humanitarian endeavour supported by the United Nations, Justice and the entire international legal system are turned upside down: pacifism and the antiwar movement are criminalized. Opposing the war becomes a criminal act.

Obama’s Legacy is War and The Big Lie. The Big Lie must be exposed for what it is and what it does. It sanctions the indiscriminate killing of men, women and children. It destroys families and people. It destroys the commitment of people towards their fellow human beings. It prevents people from expressing their solidarity for those who suffer. It upholds war and the police state as the sole avenue. It destroys both nationalism and internationalism. Breaking the lie means breaking a criminal project of global destruction, in which the quest for profit is the overriding force. Full story:

Revelation 18:21-23 prophesies the Sinking of Los Angeles

Brother Branham prophesied a 1,500 x 300 – 400 mile segment of earth’s crust will sink beneath the Pacific marking the close of the Christian dispensation. In about 1935 he said: “The time would come that the sea would weep its way into the desert” . . . 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 . . . such a tidal wave . . . probably come almost to Tucson . . .”

Then, in a continuous series of spiritual dreams in 1937 Joe Brandt saw an earthquake sink Los Angeles, much of California and Japan: “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 . . . 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 . . . I could see Japan . . . it started to go into the sea . . . 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 there’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)].

Three days beforehand, Brother Branham prophesied the Good Friday earthquake that struck Alaska in 1964 (magnitude 9.2). A magnitude 8.8 earthquake struck Colombia in 1906. The Smithsonian Institute/USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report shows seismicity at Nevado del Ruiz volcano in Colombia, and seventeen volcanoes in the Pacific Ring of Fire while the USGS shows twelve significant earthquakes have occurred in the Pacific Ring of Fire over the last thirty days.

The Christian Ministry Today

Once again, a warm welcome to all Bible Believers in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. In this sermon we are going to study what the Bible teaches concerning the Christian Ministry today.

Ephesians 4, beginning with verse 8 “Wherefore when Jesus ascended on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men (Psalm 68:18). And He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some pastors and teachers; FOR THE PERFECTING OF THOSE WHO ARE ALREADY SAINTS (or born again) FOR THE WORK OF THE MINISTRY, FOR THE EDIFYING OF THE BODY OF CHRIST: TILL WE ALL COME IN THE UNITY OF THE FAITH, AND OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE SON OF GOD, unto a mature man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: that we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried by every wind of doctrine, (from denomination to denomination), by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; but speaking the truth in love, may grow up into Him in all things, Who is the Head, even Christ: from Whom the whole Body being fitted and held together by that which every joint supplies according to the effectual working of every part, causing the growth of the Body building up itself in love.”

Today’s conception of a minister is of a man (or even a woman) busy 25 hours a day organizing famine relief, soup for the poor, administering homes for orphans and delinquents, counselling, running symposia on substance abuse, administering retirement homes, hospitals, schools and universities, fund raising, directing investment portfolios and myriad activities God never ordained. I’m breathless! While these are noble vocations for Christians who feel so led, God never instructed His Church or His ministers to engage in such activities. And presumption is to venture without authority, without faith (Deuteronomy 18:20-22; Revelation 22:18-19).

The other day, a fine church-goer was trying to persuade me that God has ordained women as missionaries and preachers throughout the history of the Church. I said, “But God and the Word is the selfsame Spirit and the Word condemns it.” He protested and began naming names of women he said had won many souls to Christ.

If they did or were instrumental, that does not make them right and the Bible wrong. They were presuming, trying to do God a service without it being His Will. God “winked” at this ignorance during the Church Ages when the Book was sealed and Christ was a Mediator. He will not overlook this in these last days. His end-time Bride is without spot or wrinkle: under preeminence to God with the mind of her Husband the Word (John 5:19). Today, any woman who teaches, preaches, or usurps authority over a man proves she is not born again, and is bringing a reproach to the Word. No Christian would countenance her presumption or accept her presumed “authority”.

The ‘church’ (so-called) has been presuming for centuries. Ministers think they are doing God a service with their works programs but without the Spirit they cannot discern the Word. Instead of preparing souls for the Kingdom of heaven they’re building Satan’s Eden here on earth serving flesh and blood which cannot inherit the Kingdom.

Do you remember Mary and Martha in Luke 10? Both sisters were believers who loved the Lord, but Martha was so busy attending to worldly affairs she ignored the Word. The same trick of the Devil has ministers so busied in worldly pursuits, or works programs; they don’t spend time alone with the Word and ignore God’s Faith Program for today.

Paul warned us that in the time of the end ministers and congregations would be unrighteous—without Light, “and because they did not receive the Love of God (charity or new birth) that they might be saved, He would send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie.” The same lie Satan told Eve: “God loves you Baptists, Pentecostals, Methodists, and Presbyterians so much, although you teach for doctrine the commandments of men, surely He won’t let you die.” But God does not love us all, and unless we are walking in the Light He is in we are not under the Blood and will face Judgment.

Like Mary and Martha, all denominations love God, but they’re so busy serving the world, doing what they think is a good idea, they ignore God’s Word. They have not received His Voice for this day but strange reasoning against the revealed Word, and will be damned because of it. Proof God does not love them (John 10:1-5; II Thessalonians 2:12).

Today’s Protestants expect God to honour the PART-Truth they know Luther, Knox, Wesley, Spurgeon, etc., preached to their forefathers. When Christ saw faith in the Word for each age, He overlooked ignorance. However, since the Seals are revealed Christ is no longer a Mediator for ignorance and requires us to walk in the Whole Truth. The testimony of our denominational fathers will not baptize us into the Body today (I Corinthians 13:10; I John 1:7).

The ministry and the Church are built upon faith, not good works. God’s twofold commission to His Church since Matthew 28:19 is to preach the Word in its season which He will confirm with signs following, notably regeneration, and to baptize in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Ask yourself, “Do I know even one minister who preaches the Word for this hour? Do I know what God’s Word promises for this hour?” If the answer is, “No!” then there is a famine for the true Word and you had better search the Scriptures, for therein you think you have eternal Life; and these are they which hold the answers (Amos 8:11; Revelation 3:17-20).

Speaking of the five different offices or types of minister, Paul says God ordained them for men, not women. God has never called a woman to the ministry and He never will. Every baby that dies, every cripple, all disease, sickness, war, famine and hardship, each wrinkle and gray hair was caused by the preaching of a woman: Eve.

I Timothy 2 explains why woman is forbidden to teach or preach God’s Word but to be under the authority of men, and subject to her husband. Paul establishes this Command which has remained unchanged from Genesis and the ‘original sin,’ to the New Testament Church. We are instructed to study Genesis for faith through understanding the separate covenants God has with men and with women.

God formed the human race in just one person, the man Adam; He then formed the animals in pairs—male and female and brought them to Adam as lord of this world to name. Perhaps a century after He’d finished His creation God took one of Adam’s ribs from which He formed woman, a continuation of Adam, a by-product in the image of man, not original creation yet created in Adam (Genesis 1:27; 5:1-3; Matthew 19:4; I Corinthians 11:7-12). The last Adam, Jesus Christ, is “the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature” in the NEW CREATION of God-men. He too was created alone but His Wife was created in Him (Colossians 1:15). When He slept on Calvary’s cruel Cross, God took the Holy Spirit from which He is making His Wife the elect Church, a by-product and continuation of the last Adam created by faith in the Spoken Word for her day.

God placed Adam and Eve on free moral agency with responsibility for their choices. As the spoken Word of God, Adam was a son of God and could not be deceived on the revealed Word. Woman is not a spoken Word and is designed so she can deceive and be deceived. Adam was not deceived but the by-product being deceived was in the transgression; Christ was not deceived, but the church being deceived required a Saviour and Mediator (I Timothy 2:14). Male or female, the elect of God once born-again cannot be deceived on the revealed Word of God (Matthew 24:24; John 10:1-5).

The fall, which would be caused by Satan, had to have flesh to make fall. Satan had to come through flesh also. Satan could not come through human flesh to make the fall as Christ would come in human flesh to restore the fallen. But there was an animal, the serpent, so close to man in physical appearance and attributes that Satan could get to that beast and through that beast get to human flesh and cause the fall, injecting himself thereby into the human race, even as Jesus would one day come and inject Himself into the human race, even to the extent of a resurrection wherein we would have bodies like unto His glorified body.

Satan, (the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil), inspired or incarnate the serpent and deceived Eve to believe God loved her so much He would break His Own Word so she would “not surely die” but learn how to fulfil His command—and bring life into the world. She planned to teach this secret wisdom to her husband, but God’s Word is known by faith from Above—spiritual revelation of the Word—not carnal knowledge against the Word.

Both Testaments declare how the original sin (unbelief in God’s revealed Word) resulted in adultery between Eve and the serpent—a giant man-like creature before God changed every bone in his body (Genesis 3:14). Eve was deceived; she actually thought Cain was Jesus, the beginning of the creation of God and the Deliverer (Genesis 4:1). She was no longer a virgin when she came to teach her husband how to “be fruitful and multiply.” Adam was not deceived, he knew she had stepped from eternity into time and was dying (Genesis 2:17) but he loved her, forfeited his dominion to Satan and sold the whole human race into sin. God’s eternal unchanging Word teaches us that if a woman leaves her husband and goes with another man she is an adulteress; she is no longer married and the husband is not to take her back. That Word was true in Eden as it was when Moses wrote it in the Law. The Word can’t change. When Adam took her back he took her responsibility upon himself. He knew exactly what would happen to the human race which he sold into sin in order that he might have Eve, for he loved her (Romans 5:14-21).

Adam had the revelation he was a son of God and could no more be lost than God can be lost. God must somehow redeem him, and when He did Eve would be redeemed because she was flesh of Adam’s flesh and bone of his bone (Genesis 2:23-24); a perfect type of Christ who came from eternity to time to redeem His fallen Wife, the True Church.

Eve means “mother of all that is living” which she was in the natural, though Adam is not father of all living (Genesis 3:20). Eve conceived by Adam. He knew she would and so those two sons were born, sons that would be the fathers of the human race that was even now polluted. Nowhere does it say Cain was in Adam’s likeness, yet he would have to be if he were Adam’s son, for the law of reproduction is emphatic, everything must bring forth of its own kind (Genesis 1:11, 25). We must also credit the fact that in the genealogies of Genesis, Luke and Jude 14, Cain is missing. Cain was begotten by that wicked one the serpent, and not Adam who was the son of God (I John 3:12).

Today a certain church claims to be “the mother of all spiritual living” but the Bible calls her a whore. She claims to be the Bride of the Word yet she is committing adultery with man-made creed and dogma, and her daughter churches are harlots like their mother (Revelation 2:20-23; 17:5; 19:20).

Lust and sin intervened between God’s holy command of Genesis 1:28 and the procreation of the human race, for “all are shaped in (Adam’s) iniquity and conceived in (Eve’s) sin” (Job 14:1; 15:4; Psalms 51:5; I Timothy 2:14-15).

Now can we see why God placed man and woman under separate covenants? The peculiar token of circumcision under the Old Testament was the evidence of God’s covenant with man and applied to the woman only through the marriage union (by obedience to a godly father or husband). God’s New Testament covenant is with the Man Jesus only, and applies to the woman or Church only through new birth, the Spiritual Marriage Union with Her Husband the Word. A woman serves God as she obeys her husband; likewise the Church serves her Husband the Word in everything (I Corinthians 11; 15; Ephesians 5). Can we see why woman is forbidden to handle the Word of God, or usurp authority over man but to remain under obedience?

These things may be verified by comparing Genesis 3:14-19 with the present reality. Does the serpent still crawl on his belly? Do women conceive in pain today? Does the earth produce thorns and thistles rather than edible crops, and does man still toil for his livelihood? If the answers are “yes,” the ban on women preachers is not a question of culture but faith.

Jesus gave the five gifts or offices of ministry to men. Elected lay offices such as deacon and bishop are also men; it is improper for a woman even to lead song service (Ephesians 4:8; I Timothy 3:1-13).

As Satan deceived Eve, he’s deceived the church. Some ministers are deceived, trying to do God a service without His will: reprobate concerning the faith, they hybrid God’s Word with man-made creed and tradition. Correcting the Bible they write another gospel that permit women preachers, mixed bathing, free love, homosexuality, equality between the sexes and ‘marriage equality,’ making God’s Word of no effect to themselves (Matthew 15:1-9).

Is God the author of confusion? The born-again Elect cannot be deceived on the Word of God. Folk who advocate women ministers might be sincere but they are without faith and sincerely wrong. Neither born again nor Christian, they destroy every Bible type, making mockery of God’s unchanging and infallible Word. Jesus’ sheep receive only His Word and cannot be deceived in the faith (Matthew 24:24; John 10:1-5; 16:13).

Paul said if people refuse correction after the second admonition you know they are wilful sinners and God is not their Father, for they are not under the Blood but spiritual bastards despite their claims (Titus 3:10-11; Hebrews 12:8).

Contrary to popular belief God’s ministers are not sent for sinners. Jesus said, “I pray not for the world but for them which You have given Me out of the world.” God set the five different offices of the ministry in the “Church,” the ecclesia or separated ones who are saints called out of the world, not sinners (I Corinthians 12:28).

The function of the five-fold ministry is to bring those who are already born again to maturity so that each member of the Body will compliment and build up his brethren in Christ. It is not meant to prepare saints for the pulpit but to help them mature from “spirit babes” through faith and experience in applying the Word in their own lives to “elders” prepared at all times to give an answer to every man that asks a reason of the hope that is within them.

We must have the Token of the new birth, which is the Life of Christ, on display twenty-four hours a day, being constantly under preeminence to the Word, doing only what the Father reveals and speaking only what He has inspired (John 5:19). As Sarah called Abraham her lord and master and a woman obeys her husband in every thing, our soul will do only what the Word says do; thus our life will be “salty” causing those without the Spirit to thirst after what we have. Herein each member of the Body finds his or her ministry as priests before God and ambassadors for Christ, sharing their experience of conversion, reconciling others to God through faith in “the present Truth” (II Corinthians 5; I Peter 3:15; Revelation 1:6). Hereby sisters may witness their personal experience without teaching.

New-born babes in the Kingdom of faith are often full of denominational schooling. Prior to regeneration our souls served the world by catering to the desires of the flesh and mortal spirit. Now we must now learn to bring those carnal senses subject to the Word, the Husband and Ruler of our soul. Through the Spiritual Marriage Union we two are one as Jesus and the Father are One—by the obedience of faith (John 17:20-26; I Corinthians 6:17).

A life lived by the Word is the Word expressed and this is the only way Jesus Christ can live in us as Lord. Dead to our senses, with the world and the things of the world crucified with Christ, no longer is you or me projected through the flesh but Christ the anointed Word living and reigning by the understanding of faith (Galatians 2:20).

When folk see Christ on display and become curious your testimony can pass His Life through the Body, quickening their soul to the increase of the Body. Every member of the Body draws sinners into Christ. We need only display the Token of His Life, and sometime we’ll be asked to give account of our faith. Those who do receive, will seek a real Holy Ghost-filled pastor who can feed and lead them by the Word, that’s God’s way (Ephesians 4:16).

Some dismiss the five-fold ministry claiming all Christians are ministers, one wonders to whom they pay tithes. Male or female all Christians are priests or intercessors before God with the ministry of reconciling others through prayer and the Word of faith (II Corinthians 5:16-21), but not all Christians are ordained of God to minister His Word in public. I Corinthians 12:28 states that God alone decides who is and who is not a minister, and Romans 11:29 states “The Gifts and Callings of God are sovereignly given by God and are without repentance [or predestinated]”.

One cannot attend Bible School or theological training to become either a Christian or a minister in the Church of God. Prayer, fasting and study have their place but they will not cause God to “change His mind” and ordain you to the ministry. Likewise the laying-on-of-hands does not endue or endow people with the Holy Spirit or new birth, grant the Gifts of the Spirit, or place them in the five-fold ministry. Laying on of hands is a witness by the elders recognizing a sovereign Gift of God already in the brother, acknowledging also that he has waited on his ministry and is a sufficiently experienced elder to exercise his Gift. (In the same vein, water baptism is the outward evidence of an inward work of faith II Timothy 1:5-6; II Peter 1:21).

Paul asks, “Are all apostles?” The answer is NO! “Are all prophets?” And the answer is NO! “Are all teachers?” Again, NO! Not all are teachers. Not all are doctors. Not all are mechanics. Not all are mothers. All Christians do not speak with other tongues, work miracles, possess the gift of healing, and so-on. God is sovereign and it’s our responsibility to recognize our several abilities as well as our limitations, laying them before the Lord for Him to use as he should choose. We can never succeed at being what we are not (I Corinthians 2:11-16).

Next we face Mr. Unbeliever, Mr. Holier-Than-thou, and Mr. Sceptic, who say “the days of miracles are over” and “there are no prophets or apostles today.” This is true as far as their churches are concerned, for no heaven-sent minister could serve God amongst the sinners in their churches. God placed His chosen ministers in the elect Church. Do you know that some who claim to be Christians and even ministers deny that the Baptism of the Holy Ghost is for today? Yet one cannot be a Christian without the baptism with the Holy Ghost for this is the new birth!

With respect to those who say these ministries were only for the apostolic age, this is the apostolic age. It began with the Church on the Day of Pentecost when the “call” first went out in Acts 2. And God is still calling so the apostolic age will be with us until Christ takes His Church Home (II Thessalonians 2:7).

There isn’t a minister who doesn’t believe God still has pastors: some believe He still has evangelists, even teachers, but few believe He could have a prophet or an apostle today. Paul said these five different offices will be in the Church until the translation; until all the saints come into the unity of “the” faith and mature into the measure of the fulness of Christ. This upsets those yearning to retire on the beach with sinners rather than the first resurrection and the millennium. In order for saints to come into the unity of the faith” they must “come out of her” the church, and gather unto “Him” the Word (Ephesians 1:10; 4:13-16; II Thessalonians 2:1; Revelations 18:1-4).

Christ has not been a Mediator since the close of the Laodicean Church Age in 1963 when Revelation 4, 5 and 10:1-7 were fulfilled (Daniel 12:4, 9; Revelation 10:7). Every denomination is apostate and united against the Word, impersonating fulfilled history and “crucifying to themselves the Son of God afresh” (Hebrews 6:6). The four Gospels, II Timothy 3 – 4 and Revelation 3:17-20 foretold this apostasy at the end of “the last days” or Messianic Age of redemption and completion. “The mystery of God was finished” by the revelation of the Seven Seals in the ministry of the seventh angel to call his end-time Bride to maturity in perfect agreement with the Word, “no longer children, tossed to and fro, and carried by every wind of denominational doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.” At last we have THUS SAITH THE LORD by a vindicated prophet; now the folly of seducing clergy spirits is made manifest when they dispute the revealed Word of God.

All five offices of ministry will be in the Body until the dispensation change and translation. And those with special responsibilities here will still be leaders on the Other Side. So let’s distinguish between these offices.

There can be no greater office than the apostle for he is one who has been sent. For some reason they are now called “missionaries.” An apostle is one who sets the Church in order. He travels out from his home church to minister in other congregations, perhaps overseas but does not set up permanent residence in the “mission field”.

The Word of God comes only to a prophet. The apostle, evangelist, teacher, pastor and brethren receive it secondarily; their personal revelation by the Spirit conforms to the Word God has already delivered through His prophet (Numbers 12:6; Deuteronomy 13:1-5; 18:15-22; John 10:34-35; II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21).

The office of prophet is a “calling” distinct from the “gift” of prophecy. Although God may anoint a person to prophesy in a meeting this does not mean to say he or she is a prophet; they may never prophesy again. The gift of prophecy must be judged by two or three spiritual judges whereas one does not judge a prophet in that way.

When we consider the great worldwide ‘revivals’ of men like Dr. Billy Graham, we can see how very different man’s ways are from God’s ways. Contrast what they preach with the Scripture and consider their results—they are not according to the Bible! They gathered bottoms on seats, but did not convert souls to Christ by “the present Truth.” The evangelist has an ability to revive and spiritually enliven those who have the Life of Christ within, bringing revival among those who are already saints.

The pastor is a feeder of the sheep. He separates himself with God alone to seek “Spiritual Food in due season” and then breaks it down for the Sheep to digest. He understands the sheep God has entrusted to his care and although they seldom fully appreciate his concern and discernment, he has them constantly in his heart and prayers.

The teacher has a depth of understanding in the Word way beyond the other offices; he can teach the other ministers. The reason so much error is believed as truth is a lack of sound teaching. Preaching brings condemnation, correction and repentance; teaching shows you your position in the Body.

It is essential all Christians including ministers discern the ministry God has set in His Church and humble themselves before the Word, seeking understanding or faith instead of trying to justify their own beliefs. If a point of truth from the Word comes up and a man tries to explain his view to one with an opposing view, the listener is not at all listening that he might learn; he is listening only to refute what is being said. Where is the Holy Spirit in this? If the speaker is presenting “the faith,” to dismiss it is to reject the Spirit; the listener is not born-again and has no respect for God’s servants.

It is high time we took stock and recognized God has declared a time when every Church and every minister would be found preaching error. They have been in error since Pentecost because the Book was sealed which is why Christ was a Mediator. If the Church and God’s ministers had been preaching THUS SAITH THE LORD all this time He would not have been a Mediator. When Revelations 4, 5 and 10:1-7 were fulfilled the Church Ages ended as Spiritual moves of God and all the mysteries of the Seven Sealed Book were revealed. That was in 1963, 44 years ago; it is later than we think.

Fleshly church members without the Spirit, unable to discern the ministry, imagine they can worship wherever they please. But God said we must not worship in any entrance into the Kingdom God has given through the Ages—Lutheran, C of E, Presbyterian, Methodist, Baptist, Assemblies of God, United Pentecostal, etc., but in the Place He has chosen to put His Name (Deuteronomy 16:2, 5-6; Isaiah 28:8-13; II Peter 1:12; I John 1:7; Revelation 1 – 4:1).

God placed His Name in Christ the anointed Word. But do you see how the Place of God’s Presence through which the believer enters into the Kingdom has moved as He revealed Himself in greater measure through the Reformation? It is not acceptable for us to walk in part of the Word, we must walk in all of the Light God has revealed for our day or we cannot enter the Kingdom (I John 1:7).

The Protestant denominations illustrate this point. Each was founded upon progressive revelations from God as recorded by history and the major doctrines they espoused. In each age, the saints came out of earlier denominations that refused further revelation; when they shunned that closer embrace they rejected the Spirit and died. This proves it is impossible to be reborn by the glare of an Age gone by; Jesus the Light of the world is alive, and like the living creatures He is always moving forward (I John 1:7).

A schoolboy could see that. Yet hundreds of millions of supposed-to-be-Christians, ten thousands of clergymen who’ve dedicated their lives to studying the dead letter and the educated guesses of educated men can’t see it. Blind leaders of the blind! Grace! Grace! God’s Grace to see Light!

Now God is calling all of His elect—not everyone—OUT from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughters into Oneness with the Word to fulfil Jesus’ prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane (John 17:20-26; II Thessalonians 2:1; Revelations 18:1-4). The opening of the Seventh Seal was the return of Christ, the Fulness of the Word (I Corinthians 13:10). His end-time Bride is coming into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the sons of God and the translation. The denominations are in the darkness of apostasy.

The ‘rapture’ is a revelation, a process of entering into agreement with the Word by faith: the Bride will be under such preeminence to the Word she will have the testimony that she pleases God (Hebrews 11:5). In the manifestation of the sons of God after the close of the Gentile dispensation she will be a hunted and persecuted little group, but what she says God will do, for she has the mind of Christ. Then, like Enoch, she’ll be changed in the atoms: so few she won’t be missed when God takes her Home for the Wedding Supper and the world enters the Great Tribulation.

The Gentile dispensation will end with a concussion of nature unprecedented in the history of man. Over a million square miles of California will be swallowed by the Pacific, tidal waves will sink ships and drown coastal towns, volcanoes will turn the Moon (a type of the Church) to blood, it will be worse than the last days of Pompeii. Political strife will follow, including the invasion of mainland USA; Satan will be cast out and incarnate himself in that man of sin, the son of perdition.

Christ has come like a thief in the night” and is present with us now; the revelation of the Seven Seals brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form (I Thessalonians 4:13-16; 5:1-5; Jude 14; Revelation 10:1-4; 16:15-16). Without this revelation denominational and nominal Christians cannot see Him. The ‘rapture’ has been in process since 1963. I did not say “resurrection” or “translation.” The first resurrection will begin three days after the Seventh Trump ends the Christian dispensation of grace: the sleeping New Testament will arise in glorified bodies by Church Age, then “we who are alive and remain” will be glorified, and the Lord will anoint two Hebrew prophets to minister to Israel.

“So what about the Lutheran, Anglican and Presbyterian Christians; will they be in the first resurrection?”

“Yes, the bodies of those baptized into Christ in the Sardis Church Ages have been sleeping for hundreds of years and they will rise in the first Resurrection.”

“How about the Methodist, Baptist, Nazarene, Brethren, and Pilgrim Holiness Christians, will they be there?”

“Why certainly! All the saints of the Philadelphia Dispensation will rise from the grave.”

“And the Pentecostals? Will the saints from the Assemblies of God, Four Square, Church of God, United Pentecostal Church, etc., be present?”

“Yes Sir! All the saints of the Laodicean Church Age will be present. They too will resurrect from the dead to glorified flesh in the likeness of their natural body in the prime of life.”

“Well, what about God’s children living in these denominations today? Will they be changed from mortal to immortal and be translated?”

“The Bible states that in obedience to His Word all of God’s children, the wise virgin, receive the seventh angel’s Message, “Come out of Babylon,” and are filled with the Spirit. Once again, God is being crucified “without the camp” by mainstream religion (Exodus 33:1-7; Matthew 25:1-13; II Thessalonians 2:1; Hebrews 6:4-20; Revelation 3:20; 18:4). Those who hear and ignore the Word of the hour are removed from the Book of Life and lost. Foolish virgin, denominational believers and others whose names remain in the Book of Life will be subject to the Great Tribulation. Those who take the mark of the beast will be struck from the Book of Life, whilst those who refuse the mark of the beast will be martyred, judged and granted into eternal Life at the White Throne.

Deuteronomy 16:5-6 types I John 1:7: “You may not worship under any of the Messages of PART-Word which the Lord your God revealed during the Church Ages; but in the present Truth revealed for this your day—this is the one Place you can find Atonement.” Once it was in justification, the revelation of Luther—the angel to the Sardis Age, next new birth was in the revelation of holiness added by Wesley—the angel to the Philadelphian Age, then Christ was found in the Pentecostal or Laodicean Message, but that will not give the new birth today. The Holy Spirit moves as it fulfils the Word.

Where do we find Jesus now? Not in any denomination, we must go unto Him without the camp where since the opening of the Seals the Mighty God is unveiled before us in the fulness of His Word.

“But every denomination loves Jesus!”

“True, every denomination loves Jesus the Man who died on Calvary but they hate Christ the Word because it is corrective. They believe and know the historical Jesus Christ like Washington, Nelson, or Captain Cook. They know the “I Was” really well but they’ve never met the “I Am” because He’s known only by faith not learning. They say they’re rich and have it all, God says they’re naked and not under the blood (Revelation 3:17). Come out of Babylon and be filled with the Spirit.”

God is performing a quick short work in this day. Choosing the right minister can mean the difference between eternal Life in the millennium—or the Great Tribulation and possibly damnation. A minister is preaching THUS SAITH THE LORD and Eternal Life, or he’s hybrid the Word and preaching death. Since the Seven Seals have been opened and “the mystery of God is finished” every minister should speak THUS SAITH THE LORD from the pulpit. Whilst the Holy Spirit is the Teacher who guides the elect into all truth, His most important tool is the five-fold ministry. We should each seek a born-again pastor, an elder ordained of God. This requires a revelation and you will not find him in denominational service.

If we are His Sheep, God has a pastor somewhere to feed our soul. We may not warm to the man but we must respect his Office which is the Holy Spirit. Our judgment should be spiritual, not based on personality, social or educational standing. In selecting a pastor we must have confidence in the man’s testimony, his present life, and his communion with God. Receive his ministry with an open heart, listen to the end of his teaching, and go home and prove by the Bible it is the Logos we are receiving, not some man’s personal views or our own private interpretation: THUS SAITH THE LORD will run in continuity from Genesis to Revelation.

The job of the ministry today is to preach Christ’s Bride into the rapture. Any minister without a clear revelation of the Message for this hour is either not born-again, or was born-again in the previous Age of Laodicea. In either event he is not equipped to feed Christ’s end-time Bride.

The Gifts of the Spirit, fruits of the Spirit and the five-fold ministry can all be impersonated but the Token or evidence of the new birth cannot. It should only take a few minutes to know whether a man has been born again—just give him the Word test. If a man is without a clear understanding of the Word for the age you know he is not born again (I John 1:7).

Ministers like Christians all make mistakes at times. Our faithfulness in prayer and our love are as necessary to him as the tithe of our material increase. If we believe a minister is in error, we should approach him with a meek spirit so he’ll feel loved, not threatened, and has opportunity to explain our misunderstanding, or receive correction by the Word. If he is wrong and refuses correction by the Word, you had better run for your eternal Life.

We live in the most glorious time of the history of the world. Satan is in his adulthood and the Children of God are coming to maturity. There is more evil and unbelief than ever there has been in 6,000 years but there is also more revelation. We now have the perfect Interpretation of the Word and Christ is no longer a mediator. Since the revelation of the Seals, the fulness of the Spirit is on the fulness of the Word. Any saint in error will quickly catch the revelation when corrected by the Word. The elect cannot be deceived on the revealed Word, God and Christ and His Bride are One as Jesus prayed in John 17:20-26).

God bless each of you Bible Believers as you confirm these things in your Bible. If there’s something you cannot quite understand or with which you disagree, if you’ve obeyed Acts 2:38, pray. God will surely reveal it through this pulpit if not beforehand. He is the Dissolver of doubt.

Whenever you have opportunity please share this with others you believe may be able to receive faith or understanding in the Word for our day. Just spend a little time and a few cents to mail, e-mail, or fax a copy of this sermon to a friend.

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 957

“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 to see you once again this week.

The feature article in this special edition of the Church Newsletter is by Michel Chossudovsky, a professor of economics at the University of Ottawa, and (since 2001) the president and director of the Centre for Research on Globalization. He acted as an economic adviser to governments of developing countries and worked as a consultant for international organizations including the United Nations and the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean.

Unbeknownst to this good Jewish professor, his important contribution supports our present understanding concerning the countdown to the end of the Gentile dispensation and Daniel’s Seventieth Week. As an introduction I have inserted an excerpt from Newsletter 932 which ties Professor Chossudovsky’s study into the Light of the present Truth” of Scripture and prophecy and commend you to study the Full story.

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

Trump, the Fed, and Systemic Risk

US dollar

January 6, 2017 — On top of the macroeconomic risks, systemic risk is as dangerous as ever. It could come to play a large and unexpected role in Trump’s economic plans. Too-big-to-fail banks are bigger than ever, have a larger percentage of the total assets of the banking system, and have much larger derivatives books. In complex dynamic systems such as capital markets, risk is an exponential function of system scale. This means that the larger size of the system implies a future global liquidity crisis and market panic far larger than the Panic of 2008.

The ability of central banks to deal with a new liquidity crisis is highly constrained by low interest rates and bloated balance sheets, which have not been normalised since the last crisis. In the next panic, which could come at any time, central banks will turn to the IMF to provide needed liquidity. That liquidity will take the form of the issuance of trillions of special drawing rights, SDRs (world money). This emergency SDR issuance will be highly inflationary, and effectively end the role of the US dollar as the benchmark global reserve currency. [Which is where Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 17:11 – 15 will come in].

There are many potential catalysts that could trigger such a crisis, including Deutsche Bank, failed gold deliveries, an emerging market dollar-denominated debt crisis, a natural disaster, etc. [It will be all of these things]. The catalyst for such a panic is irrelevant—what matters is the instability of the system as a whole. When the catalyst is triggered and panic commences, impersonal dynamics take on a life of their own. These dynamics are indifferent to the political ideology or public policy of politicians.

A Trump administration could quickly be overwhelmed by a global liquidity crisis as the Bush administration was in 2007–08. In such a case, the global elites operating through the IMF, BIS and G20 will dictate solutions since they control the remaining liquidity levers, especially SDRs. [No! Rome will dictate the solution and rule in covenant with the international Jews].

Trump could go along with the elite solution, which would involve cooperation with China, or he could fight the elites, in which case a new Great Depression could result. If the aim to reduce America’s trade deficit, that is to say for the US to export more and import less . . . thus keeping more dollars at home, do they realise that our whole world economy is built on fake money, giant US trade imbalances, and a mountain of debt?

[Events will overtake Donald Trump and the world].

Take away the trade imbalances and the whole system collapses. The fake dollars go overseas…then come back home and buy US Treasuries, lowering yields. (In the bond market, yields move ‘inversely’ to prices). If the fake money stays home, Treasury yields—and the government’s borrowing costs—go up . . . and the whole shebang comes down. Interest rates rise. Stocks fall. The economy goes into recession . . . and probably depression. China is devastated. And jobs disappear everywhere . . . in Mexico, China . . . and the US. Is that what they really want? Full story:

Comment: Brother Branham warned, “When God sends forth a Message and tells the people, and they don’t receive it, then He withdraws His servant [as He has] 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. You think you’re dying for a good spiritual revival; you wait till after a bit. You just wait, long and cry to hear the Word of God. The Bible said so. “There’ll be a famine in the last days,” said the prophet, “and not for bread and water alone, but for hearing the true Word of God.” But that voice will be quiet in the wilderness somewhere, hid away” (Jezebel Religion, p. 22:100; Amos 8:11-14; Revelation 13:15-18). I know of only two Churches that are ministering the faith of Jesus Christ in my state (which is vastly greater than Texas).

From Darkness to Light, Imam receives Jesus Christ as Lord

Judaeo-Catholic Islam

April 21, 2014 — As a Muslim imam, Mario Joseph was well-versed in the Koran and in the teachings of the Islamic religion. In fact, it was precisely the Koran that brought him to an encounter with Jesus Christ and with the truth of the Catholic faith. But his conversion did not come without difficulties, and because of it, he has undergone grave persecution. He tells us how he attained his intense love towards the Church, the Cross and Heaven . . . Full story:

Comment: He has seen marvellous truths but sadly does not understand one cannot be a Christian and a Roman Catholic. Judaeo-Catholicism is an impersonation of Israel’s temple worship and the Koran projects the same philosophy as the Babylonian Talmud and betrays itself as a Judaeo-Roman Catholic cult.

US Foreign Policy & Campaign to destabilize Trump Presidency

By Prof. Michel Chossudovsky © 2017 all rights reserved

[The purpose of these words of mine is to reveal how Professor Michel Chossudovsky’s secular study supports scripture coming to pass in real time.

“The Devil took Jesus up into an exceeding high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time, saying: I will give You all this power and their glory which was delivered to me [when Adam redeemed his adulterous wife], if You will fall down and worship me. Jesus replied, Begone, Satan! For it is written, you shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only” (Luke 4:5-8).

Three Jewish powers are cooperating and competing for dominion over Lucifer’s one world government. The USA is a Trojan Horse for the Judaeo-Roman Catholic Vatican City State, the Jew’s City of London and Judaeo-Communism en route to hegemony “over all the kingdoms of this world,” the NWO, by serving Lucifer. Jesus Christ refused because in order to redeem His wife He had to fulfil His duty as our KINSMAN Redeemer and overcome His ten senses—the world of which He was now part as the Author and Beginner of the creation of God—the NEW CREATION of God-men (Revelation 3:14). He overcame by the obedience of faith and then rose again victorious with the keys of hell and death.

Unless we suffer with Him we cannot reign with Him. You have to suffer to reign. The reason for this is that character simply is never made without suffering. Character is a VICTORY, not a gift. A man without character can’t reign because power apart from character is Satanic. But power with character is fit to rule. And since He wants us to share even His throne on the same basis that He overcame and is set down in His Father’s throne, then we have to overcome to sit with Him. And the little temporary suffering we go through now is not worthy to be compared to the tremendous glory that will be revealed in us when He comes. Oh, what treasures are laid up for those who are willing to enter into His kingdom through much tribulation (Romans 8:17-18; Hebrews 12:6; I Peter 4:12).

Papal Keysm“Jesus said, I have come in My Father’s Name, and you do not receive Me: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive” (John 5:43). That one will come in the name Vicarivs Filii Dei which counts to 666 and is the Latin title of the Pope of Rome. Translated it means Vicar [instead of, or substitute] for the Son of God: he is impersonating the Holy Spirit. When Satan is cast down to earth He will incarnate the pope as he incarnate the Serpent in the Garden of Eden and Judas Iscariot, as God revealed to Adam in Genesis 3:15, Isaiah (14:12-23) in 712BC, Daniel (9:1) in 538BC, Ezekiel (28:11-18) in 588BC and John in AD95-96.

In 1961 the Lord showed Brother Branham a vision wherein he shot a caribou with forty-two inch horns and afterwards a silver tip grizzly bear. The caribou is the North American reindeer. “Rein” has the same meaning as reign, rule, govern or control. A “deer” is a cud-chewing animal with deciduous horns. In the Bible a “horn” signifies a power such as a king, president, or dictator. The US “horn” or president is “deciduous” for he has a limited term and is then replaced. The bear represents Russia—Gog and Magog.

USA nukedAccording to my understanding of Brother Branham’s vision, prophecies and the Bible, the United States ‘caribou’ will be obliterated after the first forty-two months of the Seventieth Week when Rome and her US image betray Jewry. “I heard a most terrible explosion . . . nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America.” The Russian grizzly will be destroyed later as prophesied in Daniel 11:45, Ezekiel 39 and Revelation 19.

Furthermore I understand the vision instructs us that the United States will have no more than forty-two presidents. This well-presented list names forty-four United States presidents and in four months’ time another candidate is expected to be elected. The forty-fifth president should be sworn in on the steps of the US Capitol at noon, when the term of President Barack Obama expires. Inauguration Day ‘should’ be Friday, January 20, 2017 when the winner of the 2016 presidential election will assume the role of chief executive of the United States.

Barak Hussein Obama is listed as the forty-fourth president, however his election to office is null and does not count for he was not born in the United States and cannot qualify as a lawfully elected president. This brings us to George W. Bush who is listed as the forty-third to hold the presidency of the United States but we find a discrepancy in tabulation. This concerns President Grover Cleveland who served two terms in the late 19th century. When he began his first term in office he was the twenty-second president. Benjamin Harrison defeated him in the following election so that he became the twenty-third President. When Cleveland defeated Harrison in the next election and took office for his second term he was still only the twenty-second individual since George Washington to hold the office of president. However because of his non-consecutive terms some sources call Cleveland the twenty-second and the twenty-fourth president. Thus although George W. Bush is listed as the forty-third president he is in fact the forty-second individual to hold the United States presidency.

UNIf George W. Bush was the forty-second and last “horn” of the United States “image unto the beast” of Imperial Rome there has to be a plausible cause for cancelling or postponing the 2016 election and maintaining Obama in office. The global economic, banking and monetary situation is poised for collapse; banksters are nervous about the pathological liar and megalomaniac Killary Klinton, and the autonomous Donald Trump who may not jump when ‘the City’ whistles. Moreover, the United States has polarised the world with the aim of killing its way out of its predicament and taking global hegemony in the ‘hot stage’ of World War III. The Vatican cannot let this serious crisis go to waste as an opportunity to do things it could not otherwise do. So when the opportunity is presented, as it will be, all religions choose Rome’s Pope as their impartial arbiter. He will reinstate peace, restore the monetary system, and be acclaimed by the UN as president of one totalitarian world government.

This brings us to the earthquake prophesied to sink Los Angeles one Nisan 14, which in 2017 will be April 14. Aside from prophecies in the Old and New Testaments and Brother Branham’s prophecies from 1933 to 1965, we find concord with the transcript of a series of spiritual dreams experienced by Joe Brandt wherein he saw an Earthquake sink Los Angeles, much of California and Japan. He said, “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. If it wasn’t 1937, I wondered what year it was . . . My eyes weren’t working right. Someone was coming—someone in 1937 . . .”

ObamamIF his dreams were from the Lord and the presidential election after November 2016 is conducted in November 2020, then Joe Brandt must have foreseen the sinking of Los Angeles in April 2017. The image of the president on the newsstand was neither that of Killery Klinton nor Donald Trump whose ears are not prominent, however cartoonists and commentators consider Obama has “big ears.” Could this be Obama continuing in office? Might Donald Trump be replaced by another candidate, or are Joe Brandt’s dreams no more than that? History does not happen by accident, history is planned.

Regardless of your homeland you should read this. “America is a ticking time bomb. All that remains to be seen is who—or what—will set fire to the fuse. We are poised at what seems to be the pinnacle of a manufactured breakdown . . . Make no mistake, the government is ready for a civil uprising”].

Professor Chossudovsky:

America's two-faced JanusJanuary 4, 2017 — Obama has formally accused Moscow of interfering in the US elections on behalf of Donald Trump. These are serious allegations. Whereas the sanctions are directed against Russia, the ultimate intent is to undermine the legitimacy of president-elect Donald Trump and his foreign policy stance in relation to Moscow . . . by accusing him of high treason . . . director of National Intelligence James Clapper has “confirmed” that the alleged Russian cyberattack constitute an “existential threat to our way of life.” Meanwhile, 2,000 tanks and US troops are being deployed on Russia’s doorstep as part of Obama’s “Operation Atlantic Resolve” directed against Russia.

Is this a “fast-track” procedure on the part of the outgoing president, with the support of US intelligence intended to create chaos prior to the inception of the Trump administration on January 20th? . . .

The central objective of this project against Trump is to ensure the continuity of the Neocons’ foreign policy agenda geared towards global warfare and Worldwide economic conquest, which has dominated the US political landscape since September 2001 . . . two major shifts in US foreign policy were devised as part of the 2001 National Security Strategy (NSS). The first pertained to the “global war on terrorism” against al Qaeda; the second introduced the preemptive “defensive war” doctrine. The objective was to present “preemptive military action”—meaning war as an act of “self-defense” against two categories of enemies, “rogue States” and “Islamic terrorists” . . . The military and intelligence dimensions of the [Jewish] Neocons’ project are contained in The Project for the New American Century formulated prior to the accession of George W. Bush to the White House . . .

The Neocon project also includes a menu of “regime change”, “color revolutions”, economic sanctions and macro-economic reforms directed against countries which fail to conform to Washington’s demands . . . In turn, the globalization of war supports Wall Street’s global economic agenda: The (secretly negotiated) Atlantic and Pacific trade blocks (TPP, TTIP, CETA, TISA), coupled with IMF-World Bank-WTO “surveillance” are an integral part of this hegemonic project, intimately related to US military and intelligence operations.

Global capitalism is by no means monolithic. What is at stake are fundamental rivalries within the US establishment marked by the clash between competing corporate factions, each of which is intent upon exerting control over the incoming US presidency. In this regard, Trump is not entirely in the pocket of the lobby groups. As a member of the establishment, he has his own corporate sponsors and fund raisers. His stated foreign policy agenda including his commitment to revise Washington’s relationship with Moscow does not fully conform with the interests of the defence contractors, which supported Clinton’s candidacy . . . “The Deep State” is profoundly divided . . . the CIA is deeply embedded in [brainwashing and mind control] the corporate media (CNN, NBC, NYT. WP, etc) which is waging a relentless smear campaign against Trump and his alleged links to Moscow . . .

[T]he Neocons’ Project for the New American Century’s blueprint (cited above) for global conquest should be viewed as the culmination of a post-war agenda of military hegemony and global economic domination formulated by the State Department in 1948 at the outset of the Cold War. Needless to say, successive Democratic and Republican administrations, from Harry Truman to George W. Bush and Barack Obama have been involved in carrying out this hegemonic blueprint for global domination, which the Pentagon calls the “Long War” . . .

It is highly unlikely that a Trump administration would depart from the mainstay of US foreign policy . . . they largely pertain to US-Russia bilateral relations which have been jeopardized by the Obama administration as well as to the ongoing US military agenda in Syria and Iraq. They also have a bearing on the European Union, which has been affected by Obama’s economic sanctions . . . a dramatic decline in EU trade and investment with the Russian Federation. In conformity with the “Truman Doctrine” . . . US foreign policy under the Neocons, particularly since the 2003 invasion of Iraq, had sought to dismantle the Franco-German alliance and weaken the European Union.

[Geographically, Germany is an impediment to Jewish one world government, hence World Wars I and II].

Of relevance in relation to recent developments in Ukraine and Eastern Europe [or Khazaria, homeland of the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews after they relocated from Lower Mongolia and prior to their conversion from shamanism and human sacrifice to Talmudic Judaism circa AD740. Netanyahu and Israeli self-styled Jews have admitted they are Khazars and not Israelites; and from the Old Testament they know that Israel’s utter defeat is imminent, hence their invasion of Ukraine and return by the road their US puppet is clearing through Syria and Iran for their re-communization of Russia foretold by Ezekiel, Jesus Christ and Brother Branham. God has allowed Judaeo-communism to rise to destroy Catholicism and her apostate US image (as Nebuchadnezzar His servant punished Judah)], George F. Kennan explicitly pointed in his 1948 State Department brief to “a policy of containment of Germany, within Western Europe.” What Kennan’s observations suggest is that the US should be supportive of a European Project only inasmuch as it supports US hegemonic interests. And that is precisely what the Neocons have achieved under the Bush and Obama administrations:

“Today both [Jews] Francois Hollande and Angela Merkel are taking their orders directly from [Jew-controlled] Washington [which is a foreign sovereign City State like their City of London and Vatican City States and not a part of the United States]. The 2003 invasion of Iraq was a turning point. The election of pro-US political leaders ([Jews] President Sarkozy in France and Chancellor Angela Merkel in Germany) was conducive to a weakening of national sovereignty, leading to the demise of the Franco-German alliance.” (America’s Blueprint for Global Domination: From “Containment” to “Pre-emptive War”, Global Research, 2014, M. Chossudovsky).

The more significant question is whether this realignment under a Trump administration will restrain the deployment of NATO troops and military hardware in Eastern Europe on Russia’s doorstep. Will it be conducive to nuclear disarmament?

While Trump’s foreign policy agenda has been the target of “dirty politics” by the Clinton faction, the new administration has powerful corporate backers who will no doubt challenge the Neocons including those operating within the intelligence community. It is worth noting that Trump also has the support of the pro-Israel lobby as well as Israeli intelligence . . .

The Timeline of the Destabilization Project

  • At the outset, prior to the November 8 elections, the project to disrupt and destabilize the Trump presidency consisted of several coordinated and interrelated processes some of which are ongoing while others have already been completed (or are no longer relevant):
  • the media smear campaign against Trump, which has taken on a new slant in the wake of the November 8 elections (ongoing);
  • the engineered anti-Trump protest movement across the US, coordinated with media coverage, petitions, with the objective to disrupt (ongoing);
  • The vote recount in three swing states, (No longer relevant)
  • The passing of H.R 6393: Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017, which includes a section directed against so-called “pro-Moscow independent media”, in response to Moscow’s alleged interference in the US elections in support of Donald Trump;
  • The Electoral College Vote on December 19 (No longer relevant)
  • The Petition launched by [Jewish] California Sen. Barbara Boxer on [Jew Soros’] pertaining to the electoral College vote (No longer relevant)
  • The ongoing “Disrupt” Campaign intent upon disrupting the January 20, 2017 Presidential Inauguration Ceremony.
  • The possibility of an impeachment procedure is already contemplated during the first year of his mandate.

The Catch Phrase is “Disrupt”. The Objective is “Disrupt”

In turn, the website is calling for the disruption of the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017:

#DisruptJ20 is supported by the work of the DC Welcoming Committee, a collective of experienced local activists and out-of-work gravediggers acting with national support. We’re building the framework needed for mass protests to shut down the inauguration of Donald Trump and planning widespread direct actions to make that happen. We’re also providing services like housing, food, and even legal assistance to anyone who wants to join us . . .

What are the Possible Outcomes?

The propaganda campaign together with the other components of this operation (protest movement, anti-Trump petitions, etc) are used as a means to discredit an elected-president.

This media propaganda campaign against an incoming president is unprecedented in US history . . .

Impeachment is the “Talking Point”

The propaganda campaign will continue in the wake of Trump’s inauguration intimating accusations of treason. The impeachment of Donald Trump has already contemplated, prior to his accession to the presidency. In the words of the Huffington Post (January 1, 2017): . . .

[The Jew George Soros’] which organizes the engineered protest movement has launched a petition to impeach Trump: . . .

Is America gearing Towards a Deep-seated Constitutional Crisis

At this stage it is difficult to predict what will happen under a Trump administration. What seems abundantly clear, however, is that America is gearing towards a deep-seated political crisis, with major social, economic and geopolitical ramifications.

Is the tendency (at some future date) towards the adoption of martial law and suspension of constitutional government? Full story:

Israel, God’s Timepiece

Israel, God’s TimepieceAndroid Phone

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 956

“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 this New Year of 2017 with all of its portents.

Our feature article “Israel, God’s Timepiece,” ministered in 1994, draws upon Sir Robert Anderson, Brother Branham and Pastor Morris Ungren and follows Israel’s prophetic timeline progressively revealed to Abraham, Moses and the Hebrew Prophets, Jesus Christ, Paul and William Branham. His ministry “restored the apostolic faith, finished the mystery of God,” introduced Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming and called His end-time Bride out from Babylon and her (once) Protestant daughters into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation.

Israel’s timeline shows us the spiritual antitype that was foreshadowed by the seven natural annual feasts of Leviticus 23. Thus by examining scriptures fulfilled through history with the revelation of God’s last prophet to us Gentiles, we can plot the consummation, and work back to the commencement of Daniel’s Seventieth Week, the resurrection and translation of Christ’s Bride of all Ages, the close of the Gentile dispensation, and “the present Truth”.

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

Washington is behind India’s Brutal Experiment of abolishing most Cash


January 1, 2017 — In early November, without warning, the Indian government declared the two largest denomination bills invalid, abolishing over 80 percent of circulating cash by value . . . US-President Barack Obama has declared the strategic partnership with India a priority of his foreign policy. China needs to be reined in. In the context of this partnership, the US government’s USAID development agency has negotiated cooperation agreements with the Indian ministry of finance. One of these has the declared goal to push back the use of cash in favour of digital payments in India and globally . . .

The business interests of the US-companies that dominate the global IT business and payment systems are an important reason for the zeal of the US-government in its push to reduce cash use worldwide . . . Another motive is surveillance power that goes with increased use of digital payment. US-intelligence organizations and IT-companies together can survey all international payments done through banks and monitor most of the general stream of digital data. Financial data tends to be the most important and valuable.

Even more importantly, the status of the dollar as the worlds currency of reference and the dominance of US companies in international finance provide the US government with tremendous power over all participants in the formal non-cash financial system. It can make everybody conform to American law rather than to their local or international rules. German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung recently ran a chilling story describing how that works. Employees of a German factoring firm doing completely legal business with Iran were put on a US terror list, which meant they were shut off most of the financial system and even some logistics companies would not transport their furniture any more. A major German bank was forced to fire several employees upon US request, who had not done anything improper or unlawful.

There are many more such examples. Every internationally active bank can be blackmailed by the US government into following their orders, since revoking their license to do business in the US or in dollars basically amounts to shutting them down. Just think about Deutsche Bank which had to negotiate with the US treasury for months whether they would have to pay a fine of 14 billion dollars and most likely go broke, or get away with seven billion and survive. If you have the power to bankrupt the largest banks even of large countries, you have power over their governments, too. This power through dominance over the financial system and associated data is already there. The less cash there is in use, the more extensive and secure it is, as the use of cash is a major avenue for evading this power . . . Full story:

Demystifying the Climate Change Debate

January 3, 2017 — “Both the proponents of anthropogenic global warming and sceptics are funded and controlled in their upper echelons by the same source. Both sides are kept in perpetual conflict and ignorance of this inconvenient truth. Big Oil and the Climate Mafia are one and the same. When they call each other liars they are just being honest. The aim is to impede the public awareness of a warming world and its true causes for as long as possible, transferring the guilt and the cost onto the unsuspecting masses whilst profiting from the consequences of a melting Arctic and worldwide crisis. As catastrophe and carbon taxation looms large, it’s important to recognize that as always, the costs of taxes levied on corporations are passed onto the poor. Wealth is de-distributed up the pyramid.”

“. . . Whoever holds the monopoly on truth holds the monopoly on deceit. What has been achieved finally is the ultimate confidence trick, managing to corral concerned people from all over the world into two camps and turn them against each other.” Full story:

Comment: Climate change is not anthropogenic and certainly unrelated to CO2 in the atmosphere. This is a natural long term phenomenon exploited by globalists and banksters . . . but I repeat myself.

Israel, God’s Timepiece

Israel's seven feasts

God deals with Israel in the Land of the Covenant in harmony with the seven festivals of Leviticus 23 therefore their elect will be born-again as a nation in one day confirming Israel is God’s timepiece. God measures no certain time by us Gentiles for He deals with us as individuals—elect, broadcast throughout the world like flowers of the field. His servant Israel is a distinct race—one nation in its Covenant Land bound within a common law and culture—separated from the nations as on the day of Pentecost the hundred and twenty in one heart in one place were separated from the world. As Israel has specific times and seasons to present itself before the Lord, He could declare in Isaiah 66:8 “the nation will be born-again in one day” in a certain year, month and week.

Because of Israel’s fixed natural and spiritual environment, God’s Covenant is of no effect outside her borders where she is not a nation. Her people were never expelled from the Land as chastisement for sin without God setting a precise time for their return. As God will never forsake Israel, we will examine certain times God set for the people and their land.

I. 400 years of Affliction

After Abram defeated the four Gentile and Babylonian kings he despaired of his childlessness and God appeared in a vision to console him with the promise of fruitfulness and prophesied “Your seed will be afflicted four hundred years in a strange land and be in servitude to a foreign nation whom I will judge” (Genesis 15:12-21). This promise, Israel’s bondage and its precise duration, were announced before Isaac, Jacob and the twelve patriarchs were born.

God promised Israel, that when the iniquity of the Amorites was full, He would destroy them before His people because of their wickedness, and give the land and the cities of these nations to Abraham’s seed (Leviticus 18:24-30; Deuteronomy 9:4-6). As the Amorites were the most powerful of the Hittite and Canaanite nations their name was often applied to the other tribes.

‘Multiculturalism’ is a satanic deception to curse Adam’s race by misalliances with Cain’s hybrid race. Israel was forbidden from intermarriage with hybrids and heathens but was to dwell alone and separated from all nations (Exodus 34:12-16). Wicked racial Amorites were cheremthen as denominational hybrids or spiritual Amorites are today (Deuteronomy 7:1-4; Revelation 2:20-23; 18; 19:20; 20:10). Therefore spiritual Israel, God’s Church, is to live alone and separated from the denomi-nations (Numbers 23:9; Revelation 18:4).

As the chief and most powerful tribe the Amorites represented all of Canaan’s Serpent’s seed nations, Rome will represent the world church system and every spiritual Serpent’s seed religion as the chief and most powerful denomi-nation when she restores peace and introduces Satan’s one world government after the brief ‘hot stage’ of World War III. In the visions of Daniel and John, the Judaeo-Roman church is shown seated on or controlling the fourth world empire (Revelation 17:3), and the God who defeated Israel’s natural enemies will shortly consume all spiritual Canaanites when He appears clothed with a vestment dipped in blood (Daniel 2:40-44; 7:20-24; Revelation 17:12-18).

The word “Amorite” means ‘prominent’ or ‘dweller on the summit,’ but in Sumerian, ‘westerner.’ As heathen China rises to prominence among the nations, the once dominant western powers that claim to be “rich and increased with goods with no material needs, are [morally and economically] wretched and miserable, [spiritually and economically] bankrupt, blind [to God’s Word], naked [of the blood] and know it not.” Subverted by Talmudic unbelief and denominational hubris, they are spiritual Amorites confederating under Rome with Eastern pagan religions historically opposed to the Spirit who requires a total separation from unbelief. Inassimilable races and religions abhorrent to God are being forcibly assimilated into the world church system—not by internal apostasy and Talmudic subversion under UN decrees ratified by unbelief in God’s revealed Word which is sin. Hereby we know the iniquity of the spiritual Amorites is full, and that our redemption and the time of “Jacob’s trouble” draw nigh.

Israel’s sins accumulated west in the sanctuary of the Temple which required an annual cleansing. Paul said these things are shadows and types for our instruction. The Gospel Son-light has followed civilization from the east to the west as first the nations of Europe, then those of the New World came to the faith. The United States, or ‘new world,’ is as far west as civilization can travel. This Superpower is the most prominent of nations and leads the world in sin. Sin is heaped up on the west coast; Jewry’s Babylon of Los Angeles and Hollywood which cause the world to worship filth, will soon be cast into the sea (Revelation 18:21-24).

Pharaoh did not release Israel when Moses demanded “Let my people go to serve the Lord,” but in the fourth generation when the iniquity of the Amorites was full, God liberated His people with a strong hand to conquer the Serpent’s seed and occupy the land of the Covenant. When our Superpower did not release God’s people to worship Him in Spirit and in truth in 1956/7, the jubilee of the Laodicean Church Age, America rejected her last opportunity for national repentance. At the zenith of Western power the iniquity of the spiritual Amorites under Rome will be full, the Fourth Seal will close, and under preeminence to the fullness of the Word Christ’s Bride will enter her jubilee delivered from the spiritual Serpent’s seed to our inheritance in the eternal land of the millennium.

As Jesus rose and cleansed the heavenly sanctuary of the sins of the Old Testament saints who were captives of death, and made them captives of Life, there is coming another cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary for the reception of Christ’s Bride. The sins borne on Calvary were carried away by our Lord and laid on Satan who will be expelled from the heavenly realm where he has been accusing the brethren, and cast down to earth with his demons (Revelation 12:9-10). Then a massive earthquake will sink Los Angeles and a 1,500×300-400 mile segment of earth’s crust, split the Mount of Olives and demolish the Dome of the Rock. Thereafter the USA will no longer display the facade of liberty: she will be ruled by Rome and the ten European nations that lend their power and strength to the beast (Revelation 17).

In the days of this confederation of Christ-rejecting nations the God of heaven shall set up a W_O_R_D kingdom that will never be destroyed but will break in pieces and consume all of these kingdoms (Daniel 2:40-45). After Armageddon God will cleanse this earthly sanctuary for the millennium ‘honeymoon’ of Christ and His Bride who have followed Him by their free will; as Abraham’s Seed by the baptism of the Holy Ghost or new birth we will inherit the whole Earth. The natural types the Spiritual: as the children of natural miscegenation with the seed of the Serpent were accursed of God, absent the Book of Life and their homeland given to natural Israel, the children of spiritual miscegenation are accursed of God, absent the Lamb’s Book of Life, and their homeland, Earth, given to Spiritual Israel.

The Two TreesWhen Cain was presented with the faith he murdered God’s messenger and was accursed by God’s righteousness (Genesis 4:3-15; Matthew 23:33-36). When Adam’s reprobate children married into Cain’s race through lust they became exponents of multiculturalism, multiplying the rotten fruit of the accursed Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil: God overwhelmed that violent and corrupt world with the Flood. But the seed of that Tree was carried over in the ark and mothered Canaan after the Flood (Genesis 6:1-4; 9:20-25; 10:15-19). When his chief tribe, the Amorites, replicated the depravity of their forebears to the full, God confiscated their land and gave it to Israel, for Cain and his seed have no inheritance in this world or hope in the world to come.

Throughout history, whenever nations settle down in vice and corruption, the decay of their institutions follows upon that of their morals, and they either waste away or give place to some more manly race of conquerors, and like the Amorites they are deprived of their country. As God has one law for all people and is no respecter of persons, Israel and Judah bear this punishment in accord with their sin and will be ruled by non-Semitic Gentile Jews to the consummation (Daniel 9:27). The United States and also the world in coming under the iron grip of Rome (Daniel 7:19-27; Revelation 13:15-18).

First, God had to make Israel a nation. Genesis 15:13, “And He said to Abram: Know of a surety that your seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years”.

But according to Exodus 12:40, “the sojourning of the children of Israel who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years,” so the prophecy of Genesis 15:13 commenced with the call and Covenant in Genesis 12:1-4 when Abram entered Canaan at the age of seventy-five, four hundred and thirty years before the Law was delivered at Mount Sinai (on the Day of Pentecost) fifty days after the Exodus. Paul explains this in Galatians 3:17, “The Law that came four hundred and thirty years after the giving of the promise cannot invalidate a Covenant that has been previously ratified by God, so as to annul the promise.” Thus the prophecy commenced thirty years before the “affliction” of Abraham’s seed “in a strange land”.

Abram was seventy-five when he departed from Haran without seed (Genesis 12:4). He was eighty-six when Ishmael was born (Genesis 16:15-16), but Ishmael was not the promised seed (Genesis 17:19), and it was not until Abraham was one hundred years of age that Isaac the promised seed was born (Genesis 21:1-5).

Isaac was Abraham’s appointed seed whose descendants would see the complete fulfilment of this prophecy. Isaac was a sojourner who began early in life to be afflicted by his rival Ishmael (Genesis 21:8 – 22:22; Galatians 4:21 – 5:1), whom Paul types as natural Israel born of the will of man in bondage under “the Law of sin and death” in contrast to Christians, Spiritual Israelites born of God’s Spirit and eternal Life by “Jerusalem that is Above is free and is our mother,” fulfilling His blessing to Abraham (Genesis 28:4; John 6:63; Galatians 3:14; 4:26). The period from the giving of the Covenant when Abraham was seventy-five, to the separation of Ishmael (Genesis 21:14), accounts for this thirty years and commences the 400 years Abraham’s seed would be afflicted in a strange land—185 years in Palestine, and 215 years in Egypt.

Whereas Ishmael persecuted Isaac, Israel born of earthly Jerusalem by the will of the flesh persecutes Christians born of heavenly Jerusalem by the Spirit of Promise. Whereas both Ishmael and Isaac shared the same father according to the flesh, neither was the Spiritual Seed of Promise. All who call themselves Christians claim the same Father but most are born by the will of man, not by the power of God, and as Ishmael persecuted Isaac, nominal Christians born only of the flesh persecute Christians of the Promise and are themselves rejected (Genesis 22:8-21; Revelation 18:4).

So the prophecy of Israel’s release to return to the Land was an exact date, Exodus 12:40-41, 51, “Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt”.

So the Exodus occurred precisely four hundred and thirty years to the day after God’s Promise to Abraham. Later the crucifixion took place on that day, and the Gentile Dispensation will end on the same day, Nisan 14.

The sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was 430 years. But as Paul explains, these 430 years are computed from the call of Abraham in Genesis 12:1-3.

Galatians 3:17, “Understand this, that the Law which came four hundred and thirty years after the Covenant wherein God promised Abraham that his seed would be Israel’s Messiah, cannot annul that Covenant or make the promise of no effect”.

The entire period of Israel’s wanderings was to be four centuries, but the statement in Genesis 15:13 is explained and qualified by the words in verse 16. When the passage speaks specifically of their sojourn in Egypt it says: “But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again. . .” This was accurately fulfilled, as Moses, whose mother was a daughter of Levi (Exodus 2:1) was fourth in descent from Jacob (Levi, Kohath, Amram, Moses).

Because of unbelief God caused the children of Israel to wander in the wilderness for 40 years until that generation from twenty years old and upward perished . . . “Each day for a year, shall you bear your iniquities, even forty years, and you shall know My breach of Promise” (Numbers 13:25; 14:26-34; Hebrews 3:8-19).

Exactly the same thing has happened to Laodicea.

The revival at Azusa Street, Los Angeles in 1906 marked the start of the Pentecostal or Laodicean Age. The Jubilee is the “release,” but all who reject the Gospel Trumpet of freedom are enslaved forever and can never go free as the unbelieving Israelites who were delivered from Egypt were brought under the Law of sin and death on what should have been their jubilee. The jubilee or fiftieth anniversary of Pentecost was in 1956.

Brother Branham, the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6, said “Now, let me bring something else. . . in 1956 in Chicago, Illinois, standing at the Lane Tech High School . . . I said, ‘This year is going to be the changing point of America.’ I’ve just come from overseas, don’t know why, I . . . cancelled my meetings in Africa and around, came back.”

“America’s on her downward move right now. She will never come back again. She’s gone. That’s right. She’s been gone since 1956 when she condemned and turned away God from the great revival hours” (Hybrid Religion, p. 7:3-4; 31:2).

“You just watch; we’re going to reap what we sow! She’s at the end. I prophesied in 1956 when Billy Graham would return, and I said that Tommy Osborn would return, and America would receive her last call” (A Super Sign, p. 163:165).

“Then there is all this talk about the glossalalia—it is supposed to be the evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, and people are thinking that we are in the midst of a great revival. The revival is over. America had her last chance in 1957. Now the tongues are God’s sign of impending disaster, even as they were when they appeared upon the wall at Belshazzar’s feast. Don’t you know that “many are going to come in the last day and say, Lord, Lord, have we not done many wonderful works in Your Name, even to the casting out of devils? And He will say, Depart from Me, you who work iniquity. I never knew you” (Matthew 7:22-23).

Jesus said they were workers of iniquity. Yet, you get a man that can come and pray for the sick, get oil and blood appearing in the congregation, prophecy coming forth and all manner of the supernatural, and the people will gather round him, and swear that he is of the Lord, even though he is actually making a money racket of religion and living in sin. The only answer they have is the absolutely unbiblical answer of ‘well he gets results, so he must be of God.’ How terrible. How actually poor this age is in the Spirit of God, and the poor poverty-stricken ones don’t even know it” (Laodicean Church Age, p. 347-2).

Judaeo-Roman church riding the EU beastAs Pentecost refused to carry on with the Message and rejected her jubilee, America rejected her last chance for national revival and laid the foundation for a revived Roman Empire and return to Roman bondage prophesied in Revelation 17:1 – 18:20 which portrays the Judaeo-Roman Catholic church controlling the last world empire until the consummation. The Treaty of Rome signed in 1957 was the covert precursor to the EU. Now there is a European parliament, a European court, a Central Bank of Europe and the Protestant denominations are reuniting with Roman Catholicism. The EU was a project of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), its successor the CIA, and US globalists working to unite Europe under a single government or “Atlantic Union,” and eventually, a global government as evident in the failed US-EU merger, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). The EU is doomed by its failure to establish a federal economy and true monetary union. This will be forced worldwide under Revelation 13 and 17:7-15 when the Covenant of Daniel 9:26 is confirmed, refinancing the US dollar with gold backing, and bringing all nations under Roman dominion.

The Gospel has travelled from the east to the west where the jubilee of the Laodicean Revival was rejected in 1956, now it is ready to return to Israel. Can God abandon Israel (Isaiah 49:13-17; 61:2b-3; Hosea 6:1-3; Amos 9:11; Acts 1:6; 15:14-17)? Most who saw the public display of the Supernatural in Pentecost never entered into the Promise. Like Israel at Kadesh-Barnea, they tasted of the heavenly gift and the good things to come, but drew back. They have wandered in a spiritual wilderness since Brother Branham finished his Ministry in 1965, and there they will perish.

The names of the fathers of natural Israel were removed from the Book of Life; they were lost and died in the wilderness (Psalm 95:10-11; John 6:49). Because of their unbelief it was not until 470 years after God’s Covenant with Abraham that his descendants took their place as one of the nations of the Earth. They were strangers in Canaan, slaves in Egypt, and in the wilderness they were wanderers; but under Joshua a new generation of believers entered the Land of Promise and became a nation. This event began a series of contiguous cycles of “seventy [Heb. shabuwa’–heptads or periods of seven days, weeks, months, years or anything else, but in this case] weeks” of years.

From the entrance into Canaan (1586-5BC) to the establishment of the kingdom under Saul (1096BC) was 490 years. From the kingdom (1096BC) to the servitude to Babylon (606BC) was 490 years. At the time of the Great Flood, Earth moved off its axis in relation to the Sun, stars and planets interrupting the original calendar which recorded time using natural cycles—days, lunar cycles—months, and solar cycles—years. Eventually calendars were adjusted to solar years of 365.25 days, but as God is unchanging, prophetic years are always 360 days.

From the epoch of the servitude (606BC) until the royal edict of the twentieth year of Artaxerxes Longimanus (445BC, Nehemiah 1:1-2:8), the national independence of Judah was in abeyance: this date began the mystic era of 490 years that forms the Seventy Weeks of Daniel’s prophecy.

II. 70 Years Servitude to Babylon, the Desolation of Jerusalem, and the Captivity

The first time Israel left his land was in the heptad of “lean years” when his son Joseph revealed himself to his estranged brethren and invited his extended family to relocate to Egypt (Genesis 46).

The second time Israel left his Land is called the Captivity when the southern kingdom of Judah (predominantly the tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and some Levites) was transported captive to Babylon. Israel never acquiesced in heart to the divine decree which in distributing the tribal dignities entrusted the sceptre to the House of Judah while it adjudged the birthright to the favoured family of Joseph (Genesis 49:10; I Chronicles 5:2). Their mutual jealousies and feuds though kept in check by the personal influence of David and the surpassing splendour of Solomon’s reign produced a natural disruption on the succession of Rehoboam. In revolting from Judah the ten northern Tribes also apostatized from God, and forsaking the worship of Jehovah Israel lapsed into open and flagrant idolatry and was taken captive by Sargon of Assyria in 721BC then dispersed throughout his empire where they will remain until the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week.

Jeremiah prophesied Judah would serve the king of Babylon 70 years and then return. Seventy years is a lifetime and the time of their return was set and foretold before they went into captivity.

Jeremiah 25:8-11, “Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; because you have not heard My Words, behold, I will gather together all the armies of the north under king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, My servant [who, unlike Judah, will perform My commands], and I will bring them all against this land and its people and against all the neighbouring nations, and I will utterly destroy them, and make them a byword of contempt forever. Moreover I will take away your joy, your gladness and your wedding feasts, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle. This whole land shall be a desolation and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.” As will the United States after Los Angeles sinks.

Jeremiah 29:10, “Thus saith the Lord, after seventy years are completed for Babylon I will visit you and fulfil My promise to you in returning you to this place”.

Daniel was taken captive with some youths of the seed royal and carried into Babylon with certain holy vessels of the temple (II Kings 24:1-2; II Chronicles 36:5-7; Daniel 1:1-4). He lived in Babylon throughout the entire seventy years of the servitude. During Jeremiah’s lifetime, his warnings went unheeded, but his prophecy of the seventy years was taken seriously as a divine Message of hope and the sacred historian added his prophecy to the record of the fall of Jerusalem:

II Chronicles 36:20-21, “Nebuchadnezzar took captive to Babylon those who had escaped from the sword, and they became servants to him and his sons until the kingdom of Persia conquered Babylon, to fulfil the Word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed its sabbaths: for as long as it lay desolate it kept a sabbath-rest, to fulfil seventy years.”

One of the ordinances of Israelite law required the land to lie fallow every seventh year and it was in relation to the neglect of this ordinance that the era of the desolations was decreed. It was to last “until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths; for so long as she lay desolate, she kept sabbath, to fulfil threescore and ten years.” Centuries later the Judahite historian Josephus also recorded his testimony consistent with the Biblical record (Antiquities of the Jews, X, 6, 1-3).

When Cyrus conquered Babylon he was introduced to the prophetic letter of Isaiah 44-45 addressed to him by name two centuries earlier prophesying the means by which he would enter the impregnable city of Babylon highlighting his meteoric career, and prophesying he would free the Hebrew captives to rebuild the temple at Jerusalem. In awe of the God of Israel who could make such accurate prophecy he was persuaded and obediently released the Hebrew captives to return to Judea and rebuild their temple.

Verses 22-23, “In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus to make this proclamation throughout all his kingdom, putting it into writing: “All the kingdoms of the earth have been given to me by the Lord God of heaven, and He has instructed me to build Him a temple in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever is among you of all His people, return to Israel for this task and the Lord his God be with him”.

Daniel knew that Jeremiah was a vindicated prophet: “In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus [a title of the king of Persia], of the seed of the Medes, who was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans; I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, which according to the Word of the Lord to Jeremiah the prophet, He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem” (Daniel 9:2).

Daniel who was among the first of those carried to Babylon, calculated in 538BC that they had served the king of Babylon sixty-eight years and according to the prophecy of Jeremiah (25:8-11; 27:6-17; 28:14; 29:10) “when seventy years are accomplished, the Lord will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation.” Thus the terminus of the seventy years which commenced in 606BC with the first conquest of Judea by Nebuchadnezzar was determined by the conquest of Chaldea by Medo-Persia in 536BC under Cyrus as Isaiah foretold 174 years previously. While Daniel was in prayer the Lord revealed the seventy years of Jeremiah’s prophecy would be amplified by a further seventy weeks of years before the kingdom is restored to Israel, and as Israel is God’s timepiece the purpose of Daniel 9:25-27 is to furnish a definite chronological determination for the period spoken of. According to the aforementioned prophecies and the sacred record of the history of Judah, the period of the servitude to Babylon, the desolation of the farmland and the Captivity are one and the same. (II Chronicles 36:20-23 speaks of the Captivity, the servitude and the desolation; Jeremiah 25:8-11 speaks of the desolation, and Jeremiah 29:7, 10, 14, 16 and 22 speak of the Captivity, while Daniel 9:2, 12, 17-18, and 25 confirms Jeremiah’s prophecies of the desolation of Judah. Brother Branham teaches on the Captivity and does not distinguish the servitude or the desolations in order to place Israel and Judah into the chronology of history and context with the Gentile dispensation and the “time of Jacob’s trouble.” I list the Captivity and the desolation independently in the table below).

Daniel sought the Lord by prayer and supplications, with fasting and sackcloth and ashes to learn what would become of “the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and all Israel that are near, and far off through all the countries where You have driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against You . . . Yes, all Israel has transgressed Your Law, and turned aside, refusing to obey Your voice; therefore the curse and the oath which are written in the Law of Moses the servant of God have been poured out upon us, because we have sinned against Him. And He has confirmed the words He spoke against us and against our rulers who ruled us by bringing this great calamity upon us: the like of which has occurred nowhere under heaven except in Jerusalem” (Daniel 9:7, 11-12).

Events and Remarks


20th year of Nabopolassar

3rd year of Jehoiakim (Eliakim)


3rd year of Jehoiakim: Nisan 1, 606 – Nisan 1, 605. Nebuchadnezzar conquers Jerusalem (Daniel 1:1-2). Servitude to Babylon begins 490 years after establishment of the Kingdom under Saul. 4th year of Jehoiakim was the 1st year of Nebuchadnezzar,” (i.e. the year beginning Nisan 1, 605 (Jer. 25:1).









Nebuchadnezzar’s dream (Dan. 2)


























This year included the 3 months’ reign of Jehoiachin (Jeconiah), his captivity began in the 8th year of Nebuchadnezzar (II Kings 24:12).

3 months of Jehoiachin






Reigned 11 years (II Kings 24:18).
















Ezekiel began to prophesy in the 30th year from Josiah’s Passover (II Kings 23:23), and the 5th year of the captivity (Ezekiel 1:1-2.)



























Jerusalem invested for the third time by Nebuchadnezzar, on the 10th day of Tebeth – “the fast of Tebeth,” – epoch of “Desolations







“The 10th year of Zedekiah, which was the 18th year of Nebuchadnezzar” (Jeremiah 32:1).







Jerusalem taken on the 9th day of the 4th month, and burnt on the 7th day of the 5th month in the 11th year of Zedekiah, and the 19th year of Nebuchadnezzar (II Kings 25:2-3,8-9) called “The 12th year of our Captivity” (Ezekiel 33:21). News reaching exiles on the 5th day of the 10th month.


































































The 25th year of the Captivity was the 14th (inclusive, as the Jews usually reckoned) from the destruction of Jerusalem (Ezekiel 40:1).





























































According to the Canon, the accession of Iluoradam (Evil-Merodach) was in the year beginning 1st Thoth (11th Jan.) 561BC. But the year 562 in this table is the Jewish year, i.e., the year preceding 1st Nisan (or about 5th April 561, and the 37th year of Jehoiachin’s captivity was current till towards the close of that year. In this year Jehoiachin was “brought forth out of prison.” (Jeremiah 52:31).












Neriglissar or Nergalsherezer
























The Nabonadius of the Canon is called Nabunnahit in the Inscriptions, and Labynetus by Herodotus.







































































In or before this year, Belshazzar became regent in the lifetime of his father, Nabonadius. Daniel’s vision of the Four Beasts was in the 1st year, and his vision of the Ram and the Goat was in the 3rd year of Belshazzar (Daniel 7: 8).












Darius the Mede




Babylon taken by Cyrus. Daniel’s vision of the 70 weeks was in this year.






End of the Servitude (Jeremiah 27:7).




Decree of Cyrus authorizing the Jews to return to Jerusalem. N.B. The 70th year of the Servitude was current till the Nisan 1, 536).







Year of Daniel’s last vision (Daniel 10 – 12).






































Darius I


Darius Hystaspes




End of the Desolations. The foundation of the Second Temple laid on 24 Chisleu in 2nd year of Darius (Haggai 2:18). From 10 Tebeth 588 25,202 days by the calendar; prophetically 70 years x 360 days = 25,200 days.









The Temple finished on the 3rd day of Adar in the 6th year of Darius (Ezra 4:15).



The Temple dedicated at the Passover in Nisan 515 (Ezra 4:15-22), 490 years after the dedication of Solomon’s temple in 1005BC, and 70 years before the edict to build the city.


Moses had prophesied these chastisements 900 Years before. Leviticus 26:31-35, “I will lay your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not respond to your incense offerings. And I will desolate the land: so that your enemies [the Edomites] who settle in it will be amazed at what I have done to you. And I will scatter you among the nations, and will draw out a sword after you (Ezekiel 12:15): and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste. Then the land shall enjoy its sabbaths, as long as it lies desolate, while you are in your enemies’ land the land shall rest and enjoy its sabbaths. As long as it lies desolate it will rest; because it did not rest in your sabbaths, when you dwelt upon it”.

The essential element in the judgment of the desolations was not only a ruined city but also a land laid desolate by the scourge of a hostile invasion, whose effects were perpetuated by famine and pestilence, the continuing proofs of divine displeasure. It is obvious therefore, that the true epoch of the judgment is not as has been generally assumed, the capture of Jerusalem, but the invasion of Judea. From the time the Babylonian armies entered the land, all agricultural pursuits were suspended, and therefore the desolations may be reckoned from the day the capital was invested, namely the tenth day of the tenth month in the ninth year of Zedekiah, September 23, 589BC (Julian Day Number 1506196.5; II Kings 25:1; Jeremiah 39:1; 52:4; Zechariah 8:19).

This was the epoch as revealed to Ezekiel the prophet in his exile on the banks of the Euphrates: Ezekiel 24:1-2. And for 2,520 years this day has been observed as the fast of Tebeth by Jews in every land (Zechariah 8:19).

Scripture indicates the close of this era with equal precision: as “the four-and-twentieth day of the ninth month in the second year of Darius,” 520BC (Haggai 2:10, 15-19).

Now from Tebeth 10 (December 15), 589BC to Chisleu 24 (December 17), 520BC was 25,202 days. We may conclude, therefore, that the era of the desolations was a precise period of 70 years of 360 days from the day after the Babylonian army besieged Jerusalem to the day before the foundation of the second temple was laid or 69 x 365.25-day years which is precisely 70 x 360-day years.

Daniel had been in captivity 68 years, since he was a lad of perhaps fifteen, and it was no doubt he who made Cyrus aware of Isaiah’s prophecy; for in his decree he said, “The God of heaven has charged me to build Him a House at Jerusalem” (Ezra 1:2). And it will be noted the same charge included building both the Temple and the city (Isaiah 44:28). Furthermore, in Isaiah 45:13, God speaks of Cyrus releasing the captives in connection with the building of the city.

No doubt Daniel also showed King Cyrus the scroll bearing Jeremiah’s prophecy of seventy years servitude (II Chronicles 36:20-23; Jeremiah 25:8-12; 27:6, 8, 11; 29:10). Reading Jeremiah’s prophecy, and knowing but two years remained to complete the desolations of Jerusalem Daniel was in desperation, praying and fasting before the Lord (Daniel 9:2, 17-18).

Jeremiah’s prophecy is the only one mentioned in connection with return (Jeremiah 29:10). It made a strong impression on the minds of Israel’s leaders because of the element of time. But the controlling factor was the proclamation of Cyrus prophesied by Isaiah.

As God’s prophet, Daniel was anxious to understand his ministry, and how God would take away Israel’s reproach and restore the people and His sanctuary in the holy city. As a result of his supplications, Gabriel was sent to inform him of a future period of seventy sevens (or heptads) that were to be accomplished before Israel could anticipate full redemption and the restoration of the kingdom (Daniel 9:21-27; Acts 1:6).

Scripture distinguishes three different eras, all in part concurrent, which have come to be spoken of as “the Captivity.” The seventy years of the “servitude to Babylon,” and the seventy years of the “desolations of Jerusalem,” are two separate eras which overlap each other, while the “Captivity” was not seventy years at all.

First the Servitude from 606BC which was brought to a close by the Decree of Cyrus 70 years later in 536BC (Ezra 1).

Second, the Captivity which began when Nebuchadnezzar executed Jehoiakim, and was God’s punishment for rebellion against the divine decree which entrusted the imperial sceptre to Nebuchadnezzar. This brought the further judgment of 62 year’s national deportation upon the Judahites from 598BC (II Kings 24:1-2). The Captivity also ended with the Decree of Cyrus.

Thirdly, rebellion under Zedekiah brought the destruction of Jerusalem and the still more terrible chastisement of the Desolations which began in 589BC (with the siege of Jerusalem described above).

The language of Jeremiah 27:6, 8 and 11 distinguishes the servitude from the Captivity: “I have given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon . . . the nation which will not serve the same Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon, that nation will I punish, saith the Lord, with the sword, and with the famine, and with the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand . . . but the nations that bring their neck under the yoke of the King of Babylon, and serve him, those will I let remain in their own land, saith the Lord, and they shall till it and dwell therein”.

The appointed era of this servitude was seventy years, and Jeremiah 29:10 was a message of hope to the captivity, that at the expiration of the seventy years servitude they should return to Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 25, on the other hand, was a prophecy for the rebellious Jews who remained in Jerusalem after the servitude had commenced, warning that their stubborn disobedience would bring utter destruction (cherem), and that for seventy years the whole land should be a “desolation.” It was the era of the desolations “on thy holy city,” and not of the servitude “upon thy people” that Daniel had in view.

Daniel 9:2, 11-12, “In the first year of the reign of Darius the son of Ahasuerus (538BC), I Daniel understood from the book of Jeremiah that the desolations of Jerusalem must continue seventy years. . . all Israel has transgressed Your law, and turned aside, refusing to obey Your voice; and the curse and oath that is written in the Law of Moses the servant of God (Leviticus 26:14-46; Deuteronomy 28:15-68) have been poured out upon us because we have sinned against Him. And he has confirmed His Words, which He spoke against us, and against our rulers, by bringing upon us a great calamity: for under the whole heaven there has not been done the like of what has been done against Jerusalem”.

There are Hidden Times and there are Revealed Times

Deuteronomy 29:29, “The secret things belong to the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the Words of this Law”.

The great symbolical divisions of Israel’s history, or rather of the times of God’s dealings with them as a nation, are all marked by the same number. They have to do with actual duration of years rather than the succession of years and chronological dates; with seasons, or definitely limited portions of time, rather than chronology in general. His dealings with Israel as a Nation were measured out into three periods, each consisting of 490 (70×7) years.

From the birth of Abraham to the Exodus and the birth of the Nation of Israel Years Total
From the birth of Abraham to the giving of the covenant of Genesis 11:29 – 12:4 75
From the Covenant to the Exodus, the confirmation of Exodus 3:12 and the giving of the Law (Exodus 12:40-41; Galatians 3:16-17) 430 505
Deduct the 15 years while Ishmael was Abram’s seed, delaying the seed of promise – 15
Leaving the first 70 x 7 of years 490

As proof of this and a precedent to justify the belief that the era of the Seventy Weeks would not begin while the existence of Judah was in abeyance is the 480 years of I Kings 6:1. Computed from the Exodus to the Temple it is reckoned as 573 years in Acts 13:18-21, by including the sum of several eras of the servitudes when Israel was serving heathen powers. We see below that the 480th year is therefore clearly the 480th year of national life and national responsibilities in the service of God. As the Israelites were God’s servant nation the days of Israel’s servitude to the Gentiles and Serpent’s seed are ignored in the Divine chronology but when the punishment has been meted out, God forgives; He likewise forgets the sin (Hebrews 10:17); which doubtless means the record is wiped out, and the period treated as if it were a blank.

From Exodus to the foundation of the Temple (Acts 13:18-21; I Kings 6:1, 37) Years Total
In the Wilderness 40
Under the Judges 450
for the reign of Saul 40
for the reign of David 40
for Solomon (it was in his fourth year that he began to build the Temple) 3
From these we must deduct the Servitudes under 573
Cushan of Mesopotamia (Judges 3:8) 8
Eglon of Moab (Judges 3:14) 18
Jabin of Canaan (Judges 3:8,14; 4:2-3) 20
Midianites (Judges 6:1) 7
Philistines (Judges 13:1) 40 93
The 480th year of Israel is therefore reckoned to be 573—93 480
To this we must add the years during which the Temple was in building, for the finishing of the house (I Kings 6:38) 7
And at least for the furnishing and ending of all the work (I Kings 7:13-51) 3
Making altogether the second 70×7 of years 490

There were 490 years from entering into Canaan (and the commencement of Israel’s wanderings in the wilderness) to the Kingdom. (See above); 490 years from Saul to the servitude commencing in 606; and 490 years of God’s dealing with Israel from Nehemiah to the Millennium. These periods were thus lunisolar years of 360-days each.

From the entrance to Canaan (1586-5BC) to King Saul (1096) was 490 years. And from the Kingdom (1096BC) to the Servitude (606BC) was another 490 years.

From the Dedication of the Temple to Nehemiah’s return in Artaxerxes 20th year Years Total
From the dedication in I Kings 8:2 to Nehemiah’s return (Nehemiah 2:1) 560
Deduct the 70 years’ Captivity in Babylon (Jeremiah 25:11,12; Daniel 9:2) 70
Leaving the third 70 x 7 years 490

From the servitude to Nehemiah’s return, Judah’s national independence was in abeyance so these years were not accounted to the nation.

Daniel’s Seventy Weeks began with “the going forth of the commandment to build and restore Jerusalem”—Nehemiah’s return in 445BC; and continued to the “cutting-off of Messiah the Prince” (Daniel 9:24-27), after which the Gentile dispensation followed and Israel’s national independence and the Davidic covenant were in abeyance. Following the close of the Gentile dispensation, God will turn back to Israel and fulfil Daniel’s Seventieth Week.

From Nehemiah’s return to the ‘cutting off of Messiah the Prince’ Daniel 9:24-27 Years Total
“Seven weeks” (7×7) 49
Plus “threescore and two weeks” (62×7) 434
“After” Messiah was “cut off” in AD30 the Gentile dispensation began, the longest interval of all, now about 1987 years. Thus if the principle of not accounting time to Israel when her national independence was in abeyance were intelligible to the Judahite in regard to history, it was both natural and legitimate to introduce it in respect of the years of Daniel’s Seventy Weeks when Judah’s existence is in abeyance, for when wicked hands crucified our Lord, God pronounced the dread “Lo-ammi” upon the people (Hosea 1:9-10; Romans 9:25-26) “until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in” (Romans 1:26). +1987
Then God again deals with Israel for “One week” 7

In the prophecy of Isaiah 61:1-2, God suspended almost 2,000 years on a comma (,). When reading this Scripture in the synagogue, Jesus stopped at that comma. Luke 4:18-19: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord,and He closed the Book, and gave it back to the minister.

“The day of vengeance of our God” awaited a future fulfilment “in the day when the Son of man is revealed” (Luke 17:30). Brother Branham’s ministry restored the apostolic faith, revealed the fullness of the Word which introduced Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming as Son of man and Judge (John 5:26-27). It indicted the unbelieving world and “proclaimed the day of vengeance of our God” which will be “the great and dreadful day of the Lord” at the close of the Gentile Dispensation (Malachi 4:5, 6b).

III. 2,520 years of Worldwide Dispersion

Israel has experienced three major dispersions. The first was their sojourn and eventual bondage in Egypt; the second was the Servitude and Captivity in Babylon, and third was an extension of the second by 2,520 years worldwide dispersion as punishment for refusing to return to Judah at the conclusion of the Servitude and Captivity. Thus Israel’s flag did not fly above an independent state for a further 2,520 years. Moses, Daniel, Ezekiel and Brother Branham each foretold the number of years the Hebrews would be stateless and scattered among the Gentiles (Goyim) or nations. Brother Branham said the Israelites who refuse to return from their comfort among the Gentiles will be trapped and forfeit their redemption.

Daniel 9:24-27 has a period of 490 years divided into three parts:
7 weeks of years
62 weeks of years
1 week of years
Ezekiel 3:24—4:8 has a period of 430 years divided into two parts:
390 days of prophetic years
40 days of prophetic years

The 70 years of Jeremiah 25:8-11 was an exact time. At the end of the servitude and Captivity in Babylon, Palestine again became an Israelite homeland. All who so desired could return.

diagram 2,520 years of Israel's world-wide dispersion

The prophesied servitude of seventy years was fulfilled by their return as recorded by Ezra and Nehemiah, following the Decree of Cyrus in 536BC, fulfilling the Divine promise of Jeremiah 29:10 in accordance with which the fullest liberty was granted to the exiles to return to Palestine (Ezra 1 – 2). But until the era of the desolations had run its course, not one stone was to be set on another on Mount Moriah. This explains the seemingly inexplicable fact that the firman to build the temple granted to eager agents by Cyrus in the zenith of his power remained in abeyance until after his death. Thus a few renegade Samaritans were able to thwart the execution of “the law of the Medes and Persians, which changeth not”.

When the years of the desolations had expired, a prophecy was given by the prophets Haggai 2:1-4 and Zechariah 3:1 for the building of the sanctuary at Jerusalem (Ezra 5:1-2, 5; 6:14). In obedience to that Divine command, and without waiting for permission from the capital, the Hebrews returned to the work in which they had so long been hindered.

But the return from the Babylonian captivity was only partial. The vast majority of Israelites remained in Babylon whose culture and religion were repugnant to Yahweh Torah over which they superimposed the Pharisees’ Talmud, and Babylon, not Jerusalem, remained the centre of Jewish religious scholarship until about AD1200. However our omniscient God had foreseen Israel’s recalcitrance and prescribed punishment multiplied seven times for their sin:

Leviticus 26:25-28, “I will bring a sword upon you that will avenge the breaking of My covenant. When you have gathered in your cities, I will send a plague among you, and you will be delivered into the hand of your enemy. When I break your staff of bread, ten women shall bake your bread in a single oven and return your loaves weighed out; and you shall eat but not be satisfied. If in spite of this you will not hearken to Me but continue in hostile opposition, then I will be hostile toward you, and punish you sevenfold for your sins”.

Thus, after the 70 years, Palestine did not regain its independence and has been dominated by Persia, Greece, Syria and Rome to this day. Israel has not restored the monarchy and since 1948 the twelve tribes remain scattered mainly among the now Muslim nations of the ancient Babylonian and Assyrian Empires, unwilling to return to Israel “for fear of the Jews”.

The third time Israel left his Land was forty years after the nation rejected and crucified Jesus Messiah when Edomite Jews betrayed Jerusalem to the Romans. The Temple was razed and “not one stone was left on another”; the people were slaughtered, sold into slavery, forbidden to return to the city, dispersed throughout the Empire and will not return to the Homeland until the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week (Deuteronomy 28:49-68; Ezekiel 9; Daniel 7:7; Matthew 24:1-3a; 15-22).

Brother Branham said, “I’ve always believed—before my class here—that there was something, that I’d have a part before I die of getting Israel back to the Lord, because . . . The very hour, by the Pan American chart, that Israel was declared a nation for the first time for two thousand years since they’d been scattered, not a people, it was that very same hour, exactly to the hour, that the Angel of the Lord met me up yonder and sent me . . . with the Gospel—the very same thing: May the 7th, 1946.” . . . [by the UNSCOP Committee at Lake Success (UN docs. A/C.I/P.V.46-57 (May 6-13)] the Angel of the Lord met him at Green’s Mill, Indiana and sent him with the Message of Malachi 4:5-6b that would restore the heart of God’s children to the faith of their apostolic fathers and introduce Christ’s second Coming (Gabriel’s Instructions to Daniel, p. 31:150; An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 327:1). After God takes His children Home He will “reconfirm His New Covenant with His servant nation for one week—Daniel’s Seventieth Week” (Isaiah 11:10-13; Daniel 9:27).

Britain’s UN mandate expired at midnight on May 14, 1948 and the modern state of Israel was born, but the new nation is ruled by non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews of the City of London, and populated by Edomite and Khazar Israelis (so-called). It is not an independent nation but an inhospitable and dangerous place for genuine Israelites descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. For the first time in history a state that had ceased to exist has been restored under its name but by impostors of another race on land stolen from native Semitic Israelite and Arabs, and under a false flag.

Not only are the usurpers aliens, but the ancient capital Jerusalem and the land is partitioned, and will remain so unto the consummation of life. However, “we know that all things work together for good to those who love God and are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28). The God who never changes His ways has allowed the sworn enemy (Genesis 27:39-41) of His people Israel to recover the land by underhanded means, and establish an infrastructure that will provide for and accommodate the Israelites when they return for their redemption in the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week as he has declared through His servants the prophets (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:14; 27:13; 49:17; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 37:14; 39:27; Micah 5:3; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31).

Whenever the Israelites have been outside their land definite times have been set for their return. In 536BC a minority returned to Palestine, and history follows their descendants who were in the land at the time of the advent and rejection of Jesus the Messiah. But there is the other dispersion which has existed since the fall of Jerusalem in 586BC, and the more numerous ten tribes who remain in the lands of the ancient Assyrian empire since the dissolution of the Northern Kingdom and transportation of her citizens in 721BC.

So there are two lines of history and two lines of prophecy. One concerns Hebrews who returned to Palestine in 536BC; the other concerns those who were scattered among the nations and later joined by the Judeans, and have yet to return to their Land.

Daniel’s prophecy follows the Judeans who returned from Babylon, rebuilt Jerusalem and its walls, and rejected Messiah. Ezekiel’s prophecy concerns Judeans who did not return. It was stated in such a way as would not influence its fulfilment nor point to the time of the translation and Resurrection. The time element was somewhat veiled, as the return of the Judeans and Israelites is associated so closely in time with the First Resurrection.

Ezekiel’s Dramatized Prophecy

Ezekiel was a priest who was probably commissioned in 593BC after he had lived among the captives in Babylon for six years (Ezekiel 1:1-2; 33:21). His mute prophecy takes the number of years of eventual dispersion and mimes a prophetic pantomime (Ezekiel 3:24-4:8).

God sealed his lips so he could not reprove Israel and then instructed His prophet to inscribe a picture or map of Jerusalem on a clay tile and bring against it an irresistible siege, indicated by the iron griddle. (Normally griddles were made of ceramic ware). By glaring at the city he displays God’s Own anger and in his siege activities he represents Nebuchadnezzar as Jehovah’s servant. This mock siege is a sign for “the house of Israel,” Ezekiel’s companions in Babylon. “Israel” almost always refers to the entire people, and in Ezekiel 2:3 connotes both the people back in Jerusalem as well as the exiles among whom he lived (Ezekiel 3:11).

For 390 days Ezekiel lay on his left side, bearing the iniquity of the House of Israel, a day for a year. He next lay on his right side for 40 days to bear the iniquity of the House of Judah. The 390 years of Israel’s sin is reckoned from the day Israel rebelled with Jeroboam against Rehoboam (977BC) and received a covenant of blessing by the prophet Ahijah, to the day they were led away captive (I Kings 11:29-39) and signifies not only the years of apostasy but also the 390 days of the siege of Jerusalem. The 40 years of Judah’s sin refers to that part of Manasseh’s fifty-five year’s reign in which he had not repented, and which, we are expressly told, was the cause of God’s removal of Judah, notwithstanding Josiah’s reformation (II Kings 21:10-16; II Kings 23:26-27).

The symbolic action in Ezekiel 4:12-15 changes the setting from the siege of verses 9-11, where an anxious and desolate people were portrayed as eating food of limited weight and drink of limited measure, to life in exile. A divine command calls upon Ezekiel to bake publicly a barley cake, the food of the poor, on fuel consisting of human dung to signify that the Israelites will have to eat their bread unclean among the nations. Since foreign lands were unclean in themselves, all consumption of food in exile would take place in a condition of uncleanliness (Amos 7:17).

These years began with the siege of Jerusalem in 589BC (Ezekiel 4:16-17). The purpose of the prophecy is to show how long the Israelites will be scattered among the nations one year for each day of his pantomime: 390 + 40 = 430 years.

But the iniquity and dispersion of Israel and Judah did not end in 390 years, or in 40 more years. In fact, these figures from Ezekiel do not point to any experience in the dispersion of the Tribes. Therefore, some other factors or conditions must be applied. Those conditions are found in Leviticus 26:18.

Two periods of punishment are evident. But the length of time of the first punishment is not given in Leviticus; it is given in Jeremiah 29:10 and Daniel 9:2. The Lord said that if after the first period His people do not leave their sins and turn to God, the balance of the punishment will be multiplied by seven.

Ezekiel in pantomime laid siege to Jerusalem for a total of 430 days, indicating 430 years were determined against Jerusalem for the combined punishment of the twelve tribes. They were punished in Babylon 70 years. 430 – 70 = 360 years.

According to Leviticus 26:18, God revealed to Moses, the penalty for refusing His correction was a sevenfold further punishment, 360 x 7 = 2,520 years. The number of years of worldwide dispersion from Jerusalem is therefore 2,520 years from the time of their restoration following the desolation.

Nebuchadnezzar began the Captivity in about 606BC. He began the invasion of Jerusalem on Tebeth 10, (December 15), 589BC (Ezekiel 24:1-2). The city was taken on Tammuz 9, 587 (and burnt on Ab 7 in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, and the nineteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar (II Kings 25:2-3, 8-9), called “the twelfth year of our captivity” in Ezekiel 33:21, the news having reached the exiles on Tebeth 5, 586, the year in which the last group of captives were transported to Babylon. The return also took about twenty years.

We are expressly told the period of Desolations was fixed at seventy years because of Israel’s neglect of the sabbath years (II Chronicles 36:21; Leviticus 26:34-35). This explains the fact that a few stubborn Samaritans were allowed to thwart the execution of the work expressly ordered by the edict of Cyrus.

Until the era of the desolations had run its course, the divine judgment which rested on the land vetoed rebuilding the sacred Temple. The era ended and the first return commenced seventy years from the invasion, bringing us to Chisleu 24, 520BC in the second year of Darius Hystaspes of Persia: November 21, 520BC (Ezra 4:24; 5:1-2; Haggai 2:10, 15-19; Zechariah 1:12).

An interval of seventeen years lapsed between the epoch of the servitude and that of the desolations so the second period extended beyond the first by seventeen years. Seventeen, the seventh prime or indivisible number, is the number of perfection of spiritual order which is why it was so often associated with the ministry of Brother Branham.

Desolations of Jerusalem

Judah lost its independence in 606BC but Jerusalem and its temple were unscathed. The city and Temple were destroyed in 586BC, God’s punishment for resisting the “servitude of the Nation” which began in 606BC with the first siege of Nebuchadnezzar (Jeremiah 27:6, 8, 11; 29:10; 38:17-21; Daniel 9:2).

Ezekiel 4:1-7 applies to the “servitude of the Nation to Babylon” but also to the “desolations of Jerusalem.” In calculating these eras, we find ourselves potentially at the end of the enforced dispersion of Daniel’s “people” with the establishment of the modern state of Israel in 1948. Henceforth, those Israelites who do not return to the Homeland in the first half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week will be reprobates who have refused to obey the commands of God and rejected any claim to the Old Covenant. Under the Old Covenant, God can only meet with the Israelites in Jerusalem, which is God’s only provided place of worship (Deuteronomy 16:1-6). Zechariah 14:1-2 (Isaiah 13:6-16; Daniel 11:38-39; Revelation 16:19) informs us that at the outset of Daniel’s Seventieth Week “Jerusalem will be taken, the houses rifled, and the women ravished: and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city [as it will be a ‘corpus separatum,’ an internationally administered zone encompassing the 1947 municipal boundaries “plus surrounding villages and towns”]. The antichrist state of Israel and the City of Jerusalem must both be accessible to the Israelites in order for God to “set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people” and fulfil Daniel’s Seventieth Week (Isaiah 11:11; Zechariah 13:7c; Revelation 6:12—7:8).

In a New Year’s Day ‘phone call to President Putin, Prime Minister Netanyahu suggested the Israeli Army may invade Syria ( Israel backs the murder and mayhem of US-NATO-Saudi proxy armies in Syria and seeks to ignore UN Resolution 242 and steal the Golan Heights with its water and oil reserves. Qatar has withdrawn from its war against Syria following the signing of Resolution 2336 (Syrian Ceasefire, Astana Talks) and purchase of a 10.2-billion euro ($11 billion) stake in Rosneft, Russia’s largest oil producer by Glencore Plc and Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund (a triumph for President Vladimir Putin over sanctions imposed by the West). As a puppet of the banksters is Netanyahu goading confrontation between the United States and Russia to initiate the ‘hot stage’ of World War III? The Banksters and globalists will stop at nothing to prevent Donald Trump’s inauguration as POTUS. However the Bible foretells Israel’s utter defeat, terminating its military power and the mass exodus of non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews allowing the children of Jacob to return to the Land of their Covenant for redemption.

430 years – 70 years = 360 years x 7 = 2,520 prophetic years x 360 days = 907,200 days. Let us calculate back from May 14, 1948 using the 25,200 day (70 years) and the 907,200 days (2,520 years):

Restoration of Israel’s Statehood

Julian day number: 2432686
Gregorian calendar: 14 May AD1948
Jewish calendar: 5 Iyyar 5708

– 907,200 days (Ezekiel 4:3-6; Leviticus 26:18)

Julian day number: 1525486
Gregorian calendar: 15 July 0537BC
Jewish calendar: 16 Av 3224

– 25,200 days (Jeremiah 25:11)

Julian day number: 1500286
Gregorian calendar: 17 July 0606BC
Jewish calendar: 5 Av 3155

Everything has been in transition from West to East since 1948. For all prophecy, including Daniel’s Seventieth Week, must be fulfilled before the generation that saw Israel restored can pass (Luke 21:32). Luke was a Greek Gentile (Colossians 4:10-14), inferred from the fact he is at pains to explain Jewish customs and sometimes substitutes Greek names for Hebrew, and addressed his gospel especially to the Gentiles. The day of the revealing of the Son of man is mentioned only in Luke (17:28-30) although it refers to Christ’s second or ‘parousia’ Coming in this day in which we are living, and not in the days of Luke.

Restoration of Israelite Sovereignty over Jerusalem

Julian day number: 2439649
Gregorian calendar: 7 June 1967AD
Jewish calendar: 29 Iyyar 5727

– 907,200 days (Ezekiel 4:1-7; Leviticus 26:18)

Julian day number: 1532449
Gregorian calendar: 8 August 0517BC
Jewish calendar: 9 Elul 3243

– 25,200 days (Daniel 9:24)

Julian day number: 1507249
Gregorian calendar: 10 August 0586BC
Jewish calendar: 28 Av 3174
(Solomon’s temple was destroyed on 9-10 Av 3174—23-24 July 0586BC (Jeremiah 52:12-13). The rest of the city may have fallen some weeks later).

This approximates the date of the Six-Days or Yom Kippur War (5-10 June, 1967), fulfilling 2,520 years from the first return seventy years after the fall of Jerusalem in 587BC. Following this victory, Israel has controlled Jerusalem as an autonomous sovereign nation for the first time since Nebuchadnezzar conquered the city and burned the Temple. When Defence minister Moshe Dayan paid his first visit to the Old City of Jerusalem on June 7, he said, “We have unified Jerusalem, the divided capital of Israel. We have returned to the holiest of our holy places, never to depart from it again.” On June 27 the minister of the interior, under a law passed by the Knesset the day before, issued an order extending the limits of Jerusalem and jurisdiction of Israeli law to the eastern part of the city. At noon the next day, all barriers were removed. Now Israel is rapidly becoming what Ezekiel called it, “the center of the earth” (Ezekiel 5:5; 38:12).

We may not have calculated precise days or dates but we have achieved a close reckoning and know that all 2,520 years have expired. If you would like to “prove all things,” this Julian, Hebrew, and Gregorian calendar converter, and this calendar converter which also computes the years from Adam will be of great assistance.

The product of the four numbers of perfection is 2,520

3 is the number of Divine perfection.
7 is the number of Spiritual perfection.
10 is the number of Ordinal perfection.
12 is the number of Governmental perfection.
2,520 is the number of chronological perfection.

3 x 7 x 10 x 12 = 2,520. This is the least common multiple of the ten digits governing all numeration, and can therefore be divided by each of the ten digits without a remainder. Because the consummation of man’s history will occur within the generation which saw Israel restored to the Promised Land, the prophecy of the 2,520 years concerns both natural and Spiritual Israel.

“The abomination of desolation,” es Sakhra, the Dome of the Rock, will be demolished by an earthquake at the close of the Gentile dispensation to be replaced by a new abomination that under a “prince” of Rome will desecrate Jerusalem unto the consummation (Daniel 9:27; Luke 21:24; Revelation 11:1-2, 8).

Khazar warriorIn conclusion we must remember that God’s Prophet William Branham spoke in colloquial English using the modern word “Jew” which was not found in any Bible in any language prior to the latter part of the eighteenth century, and the meaning of this modern word is contrary to the two words it has replaced. He generally applied it without distinction to Judahites, Judeans, Israelites, non-Semitic and anti-Semitic impostors and was aware of the distinction but the ‘third pull’ must be a personal revelation to each saint. In the days of our Lord most Judeans were Edomites, physical Serpent’s seed forcibly assimilated by John Hyrcanus in about AD125. Again after AD740 the vastly more numerous Khazars who originated from Lower Mongolia became ‘Jews.’ I believe most people in the circle of this Message imagine that Jews are the descendants of Jacob and the patriarchs, and that they have returned to Israel. What do you believe?

According to the Encyclopedia Judaica over ninety percent of Jews in Israel and globally are unrelated to Jacob, neither are they Semitic. Matthew 24:29-34 and Mark 13:28-30 qualify the establishment of the modern Israel state as a sign of the end of the dispensations, leaving seven years to Israel after the Gentile dispensation ends and before the consummation. Matthew 24:31 and Mark 13:27 inform us that after Israel’s Seventh Trump and our resurrection and translation God will send His angels—a ‘Moses’ and an ‘Elijah’—to gather His elect Israelites from war and strife and from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven to the Land of their Covenant for redemption.”

Many so-called Jews have settled in Israel yet the three synoptic gospels and Deuteronomy 30:4 state emphatically that not until after Christ’s Bride of all Ages is seated at the Wedding Supper will these two witnesses be anointed to gather the genuine blood descendants of Jacob into the Land of the Covenant.

The Bible is correct: those who have accepted the rhema of Brother Branham’s Message without heeding “the admonition of those noble Bereans and searched the Scriptures daily” for the logos, are mistaken. Daniel 9:27 and Luke 21:24 agree, “They [Israelites] shall fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations.” True Israelites live mainly in the Muslim countries of the ancient Babylonian and Assyrian Empires (Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 27:13; 49:17; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:8; 31:8; Ezekiel 37:14; 39:27-29; Joel 3:1; Micah 5:3; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31; Revelation 12:14). And Jerusalem will be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.” Because of ignorance or “fear of the Jews” ministers will not disclose that the modern Israel state is ruled by Gentile non-Semitic Jews, as Jesus said, and will be “until the consummation.” Since 1948 “Edom has built” on stolen ‘Holy Land,’ but from the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial at the terminus of the Gentile dispensation “God will throw down [what Edom has built] and men shall call them the wicked country, and the people against whom the Lord is indignant forever” (Malachi 1:4; Genesis 3:15; Daniel 9:27; Zechariah 14:2; Luke 21:24). The cleaving of the Mount of Olives will demolish the Dome of the Rock, igniting the ‘hot stage’ of World War III with the defeat, rape and rapine of Jerusalem and Judah. A mass exodus of Edomite and other non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews will mean the children of Jacob can safely return to the land of the Covenant without “fear of the Jews”.

Israel LogoOnly then will God gather the children of Israel: these Israelites evicted from the Muslim countries of the Middle East and North Africa, will occupy Israel abandoned by Edom. As Rome’s Edomite Jewish King Herod tried to murder the infant Jesus, true Heir to the throne, they are right now trying to slaughter the children of Jacob. These true heirs to Israel and the Covenant now dwell in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, Iran, Iraq, etc., where the military force and treasure of Jewish-ruled apostate once Christian colonies of the City of London, chiefly the United States, Britain and their al Qaeda proxy armies along with Israel and Saudi Arabia are engaged in the genocide of Israelites of the pure blood of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

You must personally study and prove these matters in your own Bible. Ignore propaganda lies and disinformation of Israel, Jew-controlled media and entertainment, Message ministers, and believers who claim that the Israelites have returned to the Land of the Covenant. These disobedient people are deceived. The Absolute of God’s unchanging Word states in red letters on white paper that the children of Jacob have not yet returned to their homeland.

Don’t accept what you hear just because it was preached over the pulpit; ask God for the revelation and when you possess that, share it with others, for the hour is late (Revelation 10:8-11). nl956.htm

Crashed Russian Jet Fragments pulled from Black Sea

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

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

Comment: May God bless these noble Russian officers and gentlemen.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NATO Weaponry and Personnel in East Aleppo

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

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

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

US abstains as UN demands End to Israeli Settlements

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

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

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

Zionist False Flags in France Exposed

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

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

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

Rare Russian Books on Jewish Ritual Murder Court Cases

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

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

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

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

Scientist forced into a U-Turn

By Jonathan Gray © 2016 all rights reserved

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Observable Evidence of a Master Designer

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

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

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

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

Identical to Written Language

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

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

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

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

Intelligently Designed ‘sentences’ impressed from the Outside

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

High Cloud Ring of Mystery

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

Some might ask, “Does this matter?”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Revelation 6:1, “And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the Seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come”. does not believe, but questions: “Is William Branham Credible? . . . The Scientific Explanation is: On February 28, 1963, a thrust assisted Thor rocket was launched from pad 75-3-5 at Vandenberg Air Force base in California carrying a Keyhole 4 military surveillance satellite. The rocket started to veer off course and was intentionally destroyed at an altitude of 146,000 feet at 1:52pm . . .”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 954

“We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . .”

ISSN 1442-8660

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we anticipate 2017 will prove a supernaturally seminal year for all those gathered on the bosom of the River.

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

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

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

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

Questioning Christian (sic) participation in Aggressive Warfare

Jesus Messiah

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

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

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

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

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

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

President Al Assad

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

‘Newspeak’ and Duplicity of Mainstream Journalism

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

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

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

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

Word: The Logos and the Rhema

Based on the book by Alfred Raa

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

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

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

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

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

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

* * *

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bible Believers’ Newsletter 953

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

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; It’s good to see your happy face. We are a blessed people living in the closing weeks and months of the Gentile dispensation with the Message that will take us Home before the Lord smites the earth with a curse.

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

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

Your brother-in-Christ

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

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

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

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

The ‘Elite’ Coup of 2016


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

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

Stop the CIA Coup: The Deep State versus Donald Trump

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

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

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

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

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

US Intel Vets dispute [Egregious] Russia Hacking Claims

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

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

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

Syrian Govt. retakes Eastern Aleppo

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

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

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

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

Washington Post admits ‘Rebels’ invaded Syria

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

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

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

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

Congress votes to give Jihadists Anti-aircraft Missiles

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

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

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

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

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

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

Report from Aleppo: a Historic Moment

President Al Assad

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

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

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

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

The Absolute

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Ten Virgins

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it’s good to have you with us for divine fellowship.

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

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

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

May you feed your soul as you study our news items and out main article, “What the Tapes Say,” proving all things against the Absolute of God’s Holy Bible.

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.

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

Two-faced Obama

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

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

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

Kings of the East

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

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

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

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

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

Dismal Jobs Report

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

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

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

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

Why Big Mining loves Big Green

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

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

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

Michigan lets Autonomous Cars on Roads without Human Driver

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Heroin Epidemic and the News

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

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

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

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

What the Tapes Say

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fidel Castro Ruz. His Legacy will Live Forever

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

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

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

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

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

Liberation of Aleppo . . . Relief of Escaping Imprisonment

President Al Assad

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

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

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

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

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

CIA logo

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

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

Waiting for the Barbarians

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

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

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

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

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

Believe the Token

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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